Molebridge Doctors Surgery, Fetcham
Molebridge Practice has now been taken over by IMH Group and naturally there have been concerns over this sudden change and the lack of information to patients. We have been assured they are working towards to a better information feed to patients and whilst they were unable to write to all patients about the change the letter is posted on their website. They are also working toward to improving the communication of their PPG "Patient Paticipation Group" so we would suggest if you havent already you join. Information about joining and the letter they posted on line is available on their website.http://www.themolebridgepractice.nhs.uk
Fetcham Post Office
Although the new Post Office in Fetcham at Sky Newsagents on The Street is now open, it appears that no post box has been provisioned to accompany it!. Feeling the distance between Orchard Parade and The Street is not only inconvenient but also too great for some residents the FRA along with local Councillors have contacted Royal Mail highlighting this oversight and hope to encourage Royal Mail to either install a new one or resite the old one from Orchard Parade. If you support this request please also contact Royal Mail and air your views. https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/307/~/how-do-i-make-a-complaint%3F quoting Ref No 180426-000039 stating a preference.
The state/repair of the roads has been one of our most discussed topics in the last year and and we were very pleased to have Councillor Colin Kemp of Surrey County Highways at our AGM so that residents could discuss their views on an one to one. Following the release for an extra £5 million for the Winter Damage Scheme we have submitted major roads in Fetcham for inclusion/consideration to the WInter Damage Scheme. We post some highways information and updates relevant to Fetcham on our facebook feed https://www.facebook.com/fetchamresidents/ as this medium provides a source for posting instant alerts. However you can click on the Surrey Highways direct link to see their weekly bulletins. https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/roads-and-transport/seasonal-information-for-road-users/highways-bulletin.
2018/19 MVDC Parking Review
Having received a variety of concerns from Fetcham residents over the past few years on the increase of road parking in and around Fetcham and the problems this creates, we now annually submit/pass on these concerns to MVDC for review. Certain initiatives have been adopted and will, or have been, put into place. For 2018 these included extra road markings on the Cobham Road by the Fire Station, Harroway Manor, along Orchard Parade of shops and the junction of Orchard Close, as well as traffic calming measures under the bridge in Cobham Road to encourage vehicles to slow down. Working 12 months ahead we have already collated your issues for the 2019 Review which will be submitted by the committee by the end of May 2018. These include, Cobham Road parking around the bend on the approach into Fetcham from Leatherhead, which obscures the vision of oncoming vehicles from the opposite direction and forces vehicles into the middle of the road, reducing the carriageway. Kerb and road parking along Cobham Road opposite the main village shops and parking bays. Additional traffic calming has also been requested at Cobham Road/Lower Road roundabout to reduce speeds on approach to the roundabout/village. Road parking along the entrance to Firars Orchard from Cobham Rd where site lines are often impaired. Various points in The Street and commuter parking in Raymead Close.
With more and more ongoing complaints being received regarding road parking we will continue to collect/collate your concerns for further submission. Particularly poignant also, is the recent notice of increase in car parking charges and we are only to well aware of our close proximity to Leatherhead and the station and hope this will not have a negative impact on Fetcham. So keep sending us your issues email@example.com. Updates and feedback on these submissions will be included within the Members Email updates.
