The Salvation Army – Food Bank Donations – The Salvation Army are asking members of the public for donations of food during the crisis. They have particularly asked for: long life milk, sugar, jam, & small bags of tea. However, any tins of: meat, meals, soups, vegetables or fruit, as well as cereals, are always acceptable (ensure items are in date!) and any form of washing powder (smaller containers if possible).
Donations purchased from the Coop, in Shere can be left at the counter, and other food donations in the collecting bins under the benches in the porches of St James’, Shere or St Mark’s, Peaslake.

Waste Collections –  Please CLICK HERE for guidance on bins for those who have symptoms of/have Coronavirus.

Parish Council Car Parks, Shere and Pond Lane Peaslake – The Parish Council has agreed that it will not close its car parks.

This decision has been made because we are unable to prevent those determined to ignore Government advice/instructions from actually getting into a car and deciding to come to our villages. Once arrived, if available car parks are closed they will park wherever there is a space in the village centre. This is more of a threat – bringing them closer to residents of the Parish, than if they parked in the car park.
Furthermore many of the residents of the Parish will also need to use the car parks to reach our local food stores. It is easier to avoid visitors if residents have the space of the car park around them.
Finally, it is to be hoped that with the latest Government warnings and fines, that the Villages’ experiences of last weekend will not be repeated going forward. Signs have been put up urging visitors not to visit our confined village centres unnecessarily. Thank you
