Another 'sportive' event
If you have not come across this expression before, it is the name given to organised runs/ walks/cycle rides, etc. that take frequently place on public roads and rights of way.
There is such an event happening soon that will bring la arger than usual numbers into the parish and which may have an effect on your daily walk or driving in and out of your home:
Saturday 17th July - Surrey Hills Off Road Epic, which is a cycling event. The website promoting it is a bit short on detail (no map!) but I think that it will be passing along the North Downs Way over a period of several hours.

Access to Cash consultation
Another survey. If you have a view on the continued availability of cash, particularly in rural areas, you may wish to respond to this government survey:

Community Speed Watch
Artington in common with many other areas suffers from vehicles being driven at excessive speeds. This is particularly a problem on the narrow twisting lanes through Littleton that connect the A3100 and B3000. It is also a problem on parts of the A3100.
Rat running training
The Stakescorner Road, Littleton Lane and Sandy Lane route was designated 'Access Only' some years ago because of its unsuitability as a through road. In spite of this restriction, rat-runners continue to use the route as a short cut between the B3000 and A3100, particularly during the early morning and late afternoon. In an effort to combat this problem residents, in conjunction with Guildford Police, wish to carry out regular monitoring exercises to detect drivers contravening the 'Access Only' restriction. Rat-runners are contacted by the police and experience shows that the number of vehicles using Littleton and Sandy Lane as a through route is reduced significantly.
Consequently, volunteers are needed to help with this so email Guy Catchpole if you would like to help to reduce the amount of traffic using the parish lanes.
The future of Mount Browne
Following several years of speculation about the future of the Surrey Police headquarters at Mount Browne, it has been announced that a site for a new police HQ has been purchased in Leatherhead. When the new headquarters have been completed, the Mount Browne site will be sold. More details can be found on the Surrey Police website.
