Cigarettes and tobacco seized in Godalming following joint operation with Trading Standards

Godalming officer PC Tony Kerby and other members of the safer neighbourhood team assisted officers from Trading Standards and Waverley Borough Council’s Licensing team on Monday (8 September) during an investigation into the alleged illegal supply of cigarettes and tobacco.
Acting on information received from the community, officers visited a store on Godalming high street. A sniffer dog was used to search the premises and a quantity of cigarettes and tobacco was found and subsequently seized. Trading Standards are now carrying out further investigations to establish where the cigarettes have originated from.
During the operation a vehicle was checked and found to have no valid insurance and was towed away and seized by police officers.
PC Tony Kerby said: “All shop owners have a responsibility to trade within the law and we will continue to work with our partner agencies to ensure this is carried out. I would encourage anyone who knows of a premise acting illegally to pass the information on to officers or Trading Standards for further investigation.”

Witnesses sought following fatal collision on A3 at Hurtmore

Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after a moped rider was killed following a collision on the A3 last night (September 5).
The collision occurred on the southbound carriageway of the A3 at Hurtmore around 11- 40pm.
The moped is believed to have collided with the carriageway and the rider was then struck by another vehicle. The moped rider, a man in his 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene around 12-30am.
The road was closed in both directions while emergency services, including the air ambulance, dealt with the incident. The northbound carriageway was reopened around 1-15am, while the southbound carriageway was reopened around 5am once the vehicles had been recovered.
Sergeant Gary Wright from the Collision Investigation Unit, said: "We believe the moped has collided with the carriageway causing the rider to be flung from the vehicle and he has then been struck by another vehicle.
"We have spoken to a number of witnesses but would particularly like to speak to anyone travelling southbound on the A3 around the time of the incident who thinks they may have been involved in a collision or has sustained damage to their vehicle which was not there before.

"We would also like to speak to the drivers of any other vehicles who stopped to assist at the scene but did not wait to speak to police, as we believe they may have information which could assist our investigation.” If you can help, please contact the Collision Investigation Unit at Surrey Police on 101, quoting incident reference P14258578 or Operation Bayford.

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
