Based on recent police reports there seems to have been an increase in thefts from sheds and garages in the locality.
We therefore urge all residents to ensure that their sheds, garages and other out-houses are properly secured at all times.
A Petition has been made to Surrey County Council to impose a 7.5ton HGV ban through Shere Village.
The petition aims to protect pedestrians and preserve our beautiful village and listed buildings from damage caused by large articulated trucks.
The petition has now been presented to the Guildford Local Committee and is currently under consideration.
