Acts like this make such a difference to our community. If you think you would like to be involved in an activity like this or help monitor footpaths and bridleways in Salfords and Sidlow please contact the Clerk [email protected]



Partner update 19th February 2021

Welcome to our regular Covid-19 vaccination update. This short update will be published and circulated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, in addition to our weekly vaccination newsletter. If you wish to subscribe/unsubscribe please email us at: [email protected]

Latest video – The Covid-19 vaccination programme explained
Watch our latest video with Dr Sally Johnson here where she explains how our local vaccination programme is working and answers some common questions.

Reminder – please help to remind people they should only attend with a booked appointment

Unfortunately a message was circulated in error earlier today about surplus vaccine at the Epsom Racecourse vaccination centre being available today and over the weekend. This is not the case and we are urging people to please not attend the site unless they have a booked appointment. If you can help by retweeting our message we would be very grateful.

Vaccination centre opening hours

Our local vaccination programme works flexibly to allow for changes in vaccine supply, booking numbers and other factors to ensure we make best use of our resources. This means that our sites don’t necessarily operate every day (although they are open most days). Frontline teams plan patient appointments accordingly to ensure the most efficient service; as a reminder, we aren’t able to offer vaccinations to anyone without an appointment. Across Surrey Heartlands we continue to make really good progress to deliver vaccinations to all the priority cohorts within the timescales expected.

Latest FAQs
You can find a comprehensive set of FAQs on the local programme on our website here.

When will I be contacted about making an appointment to receive my second dose?

Patients will be contacted just prior to 11 weeks after they received their first dose. The organisation that vaccinated you in the first place is responsible for ensuring you are re-contacted to receive your second dose. If you booked your appointment via the National Booking Service (for example at Epsom Racecourse or a community pharmacy) you should already have your second appointment.

Update on repairs to Salfords embankment

On behalf of Network Rail and Govia Thameslink Railway, we would like to apologise to customers who are affected by disruption to train services on the Brighton Main Line.

Sensors have picked up movement in the track in the Salfords area, and to ensure the safety of customers, a 5mph speed restriction is now in place on a short section of the railway. This reduces the number of trains that can pass the section per hour, and as a result the following changes have been made to services:

1. Southern services between London Victoria and Brighton will not operate. Customers to/from Brighton should use Thameslink services and change at Haywards Heath, Three Bridges or East Croydon.

2. Some all-station Thameslink services between Bedford and Gatwick Airport will turn at Redhill. Other Thameslink and Southern services will have station calls added at Earlswood, Salfords and Horley where possible to maintain services.

Other Southern and Thameslink services will operate as normal, but we are advising customers that services in the area may be delayed, to allow additional time before travelling and to check journeys at

As the briefing below explains, engineers expect to be able to repair the damaged section without further disruption. A plan is currently in development, however at this point we anticipate that train services will be affected until at least Thursday 11th February and potentially through to next weekend, depending on ground conditions and the ability to stop the underlying earth from moving.

River levels are rising as a result of heavy rainfall overnight. Flooding of roads and low lying land is possible this morning from approximately 8am on Thursday 28 January 2021. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for low lying land and roads around Salfords Bridge.

We are closely monitoring the situation. Property flooding is not expected at this time, however, surface water impacts are also possible. Our incident response staff are out on the ground checking and clearing any blockages and debris from the river. Our incident response staff are prepared to respond if required. This message will be updated by 8pm on Thursday 28 January 2021 or sooner if the situation changes.

Gatwick Airport 2nd Runway Update “Residents will receive a daily tsunami of planes during peak times with multiple departure routes and a significant increase in arrivals day and night,” said CAGNE. On the 21st January, Gatwick Airport management announced at the consultative committee (GATCOM) meeting that they have been pushing ahead with plans for a 2nd runway (G2). 2nd Runway public consultation August/ September 2021 2nd runway would add 34,000 extra flights a year at peak times 2022 Application for 2nd runway to the Secretary of State planning process – Development Consent Order. 2nd runway would add approx. 618,000 tonnes of extra carbon every year by 2050 plus N0x and vapours Sounding Alarm Bells - Gatwick announced that they have had secret meetings with your local authorities and that these elected authorities have now given Gatwick, a commercial organisation, permission to talk directly to your council officials in moving forward to secure a 2nd runway whilst discussing financial benefits. ACTION Needed – you can write to your local authority and Stop Gatwick Expansion. Elections for some councils are in May. Facts - Gatwick Airport would have to rebuild the emergency runway (moved by 12m with new taxiways) to enable it to be used at peak times in unison with the main runway. They do not have permission as yet to use the two runways in unison. They do have CAA permission to fly the same flights paths as today to and from this 2nd runway (G2) They propose to add 34,000 aircraft movements a year to the, pre-COVID, 285,000. This would enable the airport to substantially increase the number of flights early morning that have serious health risks, and early evening. It is projected that the airport’s emissions will go from 0.77MtCO2 in 2017 to 0.95MtCO2 in 2028 with an extra 168,000 tonnes of carbon with a 2nd runway. Gatwick announced that they had continued to undertake ecology studies and writing to local authorities during the pandemic. The public consultation will be in August/ September – we do not know what format it will take ie online or face-to-face. Early 2022 Gatwick will formally apply to the Secretary of State for permission to take forward a Development Consent Order. CAGNE Comment - As your umbrella community and environment group we have always been at the forefront in opposing airport expansion and this has not changed as we launched Stop Gatwick Expansion at the outset of these plans for a 2nd runway. We do not believe that Gatwick shareholders will be satisfied with only 34,000 extra planes a year from the 2ndrunway as their original plans (Master Plan 2018) detailed 55,000 extra planes a year of a second runway and 1 million tonnes of extra carbon a year. An airport can always apply for retrospective planning to the local authority at a later date so you should be warned that once it is there, there will be little to prevent the current owners, or the new owners, from further expansion.
