After the elections, councillors get back to working for Ashtead Residents

The day after the votes were counted and results announced, Ashtead's Independent Councillors resumed work as normal - on Saturday 4th May Cllr Chris Hunt led the other Ashtead Independent Alley Action Volunteers and helped remove overgrown vegetation from an alley off Skinners Lane. The group collected 23 sacks of vegetation. "Thanks to the team, we managed to cut back areas along the footpath as well as around the post box and the bench. " Says Chris.


Then at 2pm the same day Cllr Mary Cooper joined Chris Hunt for the monthly drop in advice surgery at Ashtead Library.  "After the April session could not be held as council buildings cannot be used by councillors during election periods, it was good to be back to meeting residents there." says Mary. "We were able to get into the details of issues and especially so regarding the proposal for building at Murrays Court. " she adds.


Ashtead Independents Alley Action Volunteers meet 10am to noon every month, except August and weather permitting. Please contact us to join our group of volunteers.


Ashtead Independent Councillors hold a monthly drop in advice surgery from 2-4pm at Ashtead Library on the first Saturday of every month, except during any election period. No appointment is needed.
