Here are Labour Councillors Rodney
Bates and Margaret Moher enjoying a

issues that remain unresolved such as
highway safety along Red Road. Many
residents will also be affected by benefit
changes which will impact on the most
vulnerable and disabled in society.
Rodney writes, '2013 is a big year for
Surrey Heath with a number of community
challenges. We will be deciding on some
major planning applications such as
Deepcut. There are also very important
'Labour councillors and activists will
continue to be at the heart of the
community working alongside residents
and those in charge. We believe that
actions are more important than words
which means rolling up our sleeves,
getting involved and then standing up for
local communities. '
In 2013, there will be elections where
there will be a real choice for residents
between community minded Labour
activists and out of touch Conservatives.

the final planning option maintains the
rural feel of the village, minimises the
impact on surrounding valuable wildlife

acceptable solutions to the transport issues
arising from the impact of increasing traffic.
Higher traffic levels will not only affect
Deepcut but will also increase congestion

Families suffer for Tory "awayday"
Everyone knows that times are tough and that
families across the whole of Surrey are worried
about their jobs and the welfare of their children.
Every penny counts for these households.
However, one group who don't appear to realise this
impact are 26 Conservative county councillors in
Surrey. Last year, they put up your Council Tax and
then thought it was a good idea to go for 2 days
away at Farnham Castle along with some County
officers. The total cost to taxpayers was an
unnecessary waste of over £4000. Imagine what
your local school could have done with this £4000!
We know that paying Council tax can be a burden to
households and that is why it is important that every
pound is spent wisely. No-one minds their money
going towards schools, roads and social care for their
parents as we can see the difference it makes with
our own eyes.
However, plush awaydays is not the only waste of

properly consult on their library plans and then lost
their case in the High Court which was forced by a
non-political community group. This meant a large
