Looking back at 2012 - first quarter

2012 seemed to fly by rather quickly.  I couldn't believe that Easter arrived when it did or that it was already summer amid all that rain.  Autumn followed fast behind, then it was Christmas and now we are entering 2013.  I decided to take a look back at the Olympic Jubilee year that was 2012 and was amazed at just how much had happened in the last twelve months.

January to March 2012
Plans were submitted for a new Horsell Scout Hut and an extension to Horsell Village Hall.  The scouts and guides are desperately in need of a new home and I know the extra space will be well used at the Village Hall.

Even my daughter was driven crazy by
the long wait for the new crossing
The crossing from the Lightbox to the Council offices and theatre was finally completed after several false starts – just in time for it to be rendered sadly underused as the bridge over the canal closed.

A report revealed that Surrey was the only police force to increase its number of officers in the previous year.  There was a 5.2% increase in officers in the county.

Brewery Road car park as it had existed for many years closed in February.  We should get a surface level car park back albeit with the WWF offices above it by the end of 2013.

PC Parish who had been Neighbourhood Officer since 2006 left Horsell following a promotion.  We have seen less of his replacement officer but the latest PCSO for our area Derek Slee has done sterling work throughout the year.

Work started to build the new WWF (World Wildlife Fund) headquarters on the site of Brewery Road car park.
