23rd June 2016
The exceptional rain last night has caused some difficulties.  Surrey County Council is carrying out works to clear the drains and gullies in Middle Street and the junction with Upper Street in Shere at the beginning of July.
The middle arch of the bridge in Shere and the grid further down Lower Street is being cleared today.
Guildford Borough Council has been asked to carry out street cleansing in Shere ahead of Open Gardens on Sunday.
Certain gullies around the Parish are being identified for digging out. They are a low priority with Surrey County Council and Shere Parish Council is considering carrying out some additional maintenance work.
Goose Green – Some drainage work has taken place and our contractor is hopeful that the water will drain away, after this exceptional rain. A review of the works will take place at the General Purposes Committee Meeting on the 4th July, 11.30am at Tanyard Hall (members of the public are welcome)

Please report all Highway issues to Surrey County Council and street cleansing to Guildford Borough Council.
