Other Hersham news:
1. Village hall reopening still planned pending estimates
2. Hersham Beer Festival agreed as a great event – 2000 people attended and there were only 5 complaints – however it was suggested that the volume was a little too loud.
3. Double yellow lines are to be painted on the corner of Thrupps Lane and Mole Road to improve visiblity at this corner.

Possible events discussed:
1. Discussion about a possible Hersham Carnival – the subject was debated with however no firm conclusions
2. Help for Heros event – there was some discussion about whether this could be organised again in the memorial gardens (next year)

Planning matters were discussed:
1. The pending local plan consultation from 15 august to end Sept was notted and all agreed that this would be an important consultation for the HRA to consider.
2. It was reported that, after some delay, work to build more housing on the Rydens site is to proceed.

1. River Mole sluices were discussed. The EA apparently (following local feedback) now don’t have any plans to open sluices and lower river levels, although a range of other options remain open and this matter will be the subject of future discussion
2. Homes for Hersham scheme discussed – this scheme for creating affordable housing was at the early stages of planning – further updates to be provided

A certificate of appreciation from Hersham Youth Trust was noted:
