New chairmanship in Whyteleafe

By Dr Marcus Jones, outgoing chairman of Whyteleafe Village Council

Whyteleafe Village Council has achieved so much over the last two years, and is continuing to work with the Whyteleafe Community Hub, other groups, and volunteers to bring people together and enhance the quality of life in our village.

At the council’s annual May meeting I stood down as chairman, and the councillors elected Deano Cline as the new chairman, and John Moffatt as vice-chairman.

I will now dedicate more time to specific issues such as the Tandridge Electoral Review to try to ensure that the proposals are fair and do not disadvantage residents of Whyteleafe. For information about the review visit the official website.

I would like to thank the council’s clerk Simon Bold, and my fellow village councillors for their excellent work over the last two years. Additionally, I would like to give my special thanks to the Whyteleafe Community Hub volunteers for delivering great street parties, for their tireless efforts in feeding those in need, befriending, litter picking and supporting the garden group volunteers who are working hard to make our village more beautiful.

Thanks also to Rev’d Annie Kurk and the kind parishioners of St. Luke’s Church for their support, generosity, and great work in the community. And finally, a big thank you to all the residents of Whyteleafe for the tremendous support you give too.
