The ERA will be running a stall at the upcoming Esher May Fair and we’d really appreciate donations in the form of books and unwanted costumer jewellery.

There’s another local election coming up in May and we want to fight it, but that takes money (and volunteers). We want to battle for Option 4 (no building on Green Belt land) in the new Local Plan. This will mean bringing all other RA groups and activists together, under one banner, to make Elmbridge Council fight the government on its housing figures. They need to develop some backbone in the face of the Inspectors.

Working alongside the Save Esher Greenbelt team, we valiantly battled the Jockey Club’s wish to build on Sandown Park this year, but they will be back with an appeal and no doubt this will require more superhuman efforts. Again, your contribution to our stall could help us bat them away.

Please let us know if you have anything to give and we will pick it/them up at a time that suits you. Drop us a line at helloesher@icloud.com
