Woking Weekly Round Up

Mousetrap comes to Woking

Mousetrap comes to Woking

Mousetrap, penned by Agatha Christie, is coming to Woking as part of its first ever tour.  The play which has spent 60 years in London theatres will be at the New Victoria Theatre between Monday 12 and Friday 16 November. More information here from Get Hampshire.

Woking Core Plan Launched

Eagle Radio covered the launch of the Woking core plan this week.  Sounds very dull but this is the critical document that sets out broad guidelines on what can and can't be built in Woking over the next 15 years.  It says how many new homes need to be built and what proportion of new properties should be 'affordable'.

Woking FC Glory Days

Woking lost at Gateshead on Saturday and previously failed to make the first round proper of the FA Cup this year but Paul Caulfied in the Independent looked back at Woking's stunning victory over West Bromwich Albion over 20 years ago.  That FA Cup fixture was real slaying for the Woking team over much higher placed opposition.

Abu Dhabi Downer for Lewis

The Formula 1 weekend started well for Lewis Hamilton with a pole position in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix but ended badly with an engine failure putting him out of the race from a dominant position at the front of the race.  BBC News covers his reaction.

Fireworks in the Park

A huge crowd enjoyed the annual Round Table fireworks at Woking Park on Saturday.  This was the 19th annual firework display which raises money for local good causes.  As usual the fireworks were set to music with this year's theme 50 years of James Bond films.  Local photographer Lisa got some great shots of the display.  Look out for the 20th display in 2013.
