Local Plan

The Rushmoor Local Plan has been published in draft submission form for public consultation. The comment period runs between Friday 9 June and Friday 21 July 2017.

The plan and the comment form can be found here. Unfortunately it is not the easiest read as much of it is politically correct waffle. A summary of the important points would be useful, if anyone would like to offer.....

Bert Buddle

It is sad to have to report on the death, this weekend, of longstanding member Bert Buddle.

Being the stalwart Bert was, on Thursday he did his normal 11:00 am - 1:00 pm stint on Manor Infants polling station in West Heath and whilst there became very unwell. The Officers manning the polling station were very quick to react and immediately called for an ambulance which rushed him to Frimley Park where he was diagnosed as having suffered a major stroke. Dave Bell quickly followed Bert to the hospital and remained with him until his family arrived. The stroke left Bert totally paralysed down one side and with no power of speech. Clot busting drugs were administered and after no apparent change he was transferred to St Georges in Tooting for an operation to remove the blood clot from the brain. Sadly however this was not possible as the clot was in a difficult place to operate.

Our condolences to his family.

Election Day

Do not forget to vote (for UKIP obviously) today.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm and if you are registered to vote, you will have received a poll card telling you where your local polling station is. You don't need to take your poll card with you when you go to vote, but it can make things quicker at the polling station.
