News from Ockham Parish Council – March 2022

  • Parish Council has a new website: Minutes and news updates are published regularly and the site also gives contact details for the Parish Councillors.
  • We are delighted to welcome Peter Bevan back to the Parish Council. We are looking for a further Parish Councillor to join us. Please look at our website or contact our clerk: for details.
  • Please take a moment to go down to Ockham Playing Field and admire the 7 new oak trees (one for each decade of HM Queen’s reign) and multiple forsythia bushes that were planted recently by Ockham volunteers. These were donated to us by Surrey County Council and although they have a lot of growing to do, they will develop into a splendid lasting legacy of the Platinum Jubilee year.
  • The vehicle activated speed awareness signs in Ockham Lane and Ockham Road North have successfully slowed down traffic driving through our historic village. The Parish Council will shortly be purchasing a third vehicle activated speed awareness sign. We hope this will be equally successful in slowing down the traffic in 40 mph and weight restricted Old Lane.
  • We would like to create a floral tribute for HM Queen Platinum Jubilee. If you are interested in getting involved, we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact Alyson our Clerk for further details.

Please contact the Parish Clerk with enquiries
