Mayor of London cycling legacy event in August 2013 announced

The Mayor of London announced plans for a two-day festival of cycling, which will take place in August 2013, providing a cycling legacy after the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Up to 70,000 people will take part in a family festival in London on day one and day two will see up to 35,000 amateur, club and world-class elite cyclists taking part in a 100-mile road race, which will begin at the Olympic Park, head towards Surrey and is likely to follow much of the route of the Olympic Road Cycling Race.  
The Mayor of London’s Office will be working with Transport for London and Surrey County Council on the exact route of the race.  We will be in touch later this year once we have more details.

Surrey Sponsored Abseil

Saturday 24 March 2012

The 15th Century tower of St Mary and St Nicholas church in Leatherhead has been used as a school, a fire station and now…an abseil venue! Put your fear threshold to the test at this historic building which is even older than the Domesday Book. You’ll have stunning views over the town of Leatherhead, right across to Box Hill and Dorking, as you participate in this exciting and unique experience.

Olympic Bell Ringing

Dear All

 

The London 2012 Festival organisers have announced a mass bell-ringing to mark the start of the Olympic Games on Friday 27 July at 8.00am for 3 minutes. It would be great if Mole Valley were to participate in this event so I would be most grateful if you could pass this information on to anyone who would be interested. The plan is not only to ring church bells, but also door bells, hand bells, sleigh bells, school bells, bicycle bells and so on. There is a link below to a BBC news item on this topic and the relevant page on the London 2012 website as well as the All the Bells website

 

 

 

 

 

kind regards

Surrey Reuse Network furniture reuse campaign


Surrey County Council will be launching the Surrey Reuse Network furniture reuse campaign next week which aims to increase the amount of furniture and white goods that are reused, aiming to divert 2,000 tonnes going into landfill.

The Surrey Reuse Network offers a wide range of good quality items at affordable prices. Made up of a group of six charities, the network aims to find new homes for donated furniture and kitchen appliances, as well as offering training and employment opportunities and helping local families in need. Buying reusable furniture and kitchen appliances is great value, good for the environment and hidden treasures may be found.

Visit www.surreyreusenetwork.org.uk to see what sort of information Surrey Reuse Network are communicating.
