I have had many requests to address the delay at the temporary lights at Tesco by Lion Green.

Here is an officer reply received today:

Subject: Surrey Highways Reference: 1794388 – LION GREEN, HASLEMERE Dear Cllr Nikki Barton,

Thank you for your recent enquiry which has been logged as follows:

Reference number: 1794388
Location: LION GREEN, HASLEMERE
Details: Traffic Operations – Delays

We have asked our contractors to run the portable traffic signals on Manual Control for busy periods. Unfortunately portable signals can never be as “intelligent” or efficient as permanent signals and some delays are unavoidable.

We have also requested for the stretch of parking bays outside the party shop and Kelway Law to be suspended. This should allow traffic coming down the hill to be able to drive through the parking bays to improve traffic flow and allow larger vehicles to proceed through the works more easily. This is being done from Monday. This should help to alleviate congestion. Please pass on our apologies for any disruption to customers and residents. Thank you.

Once again thank you for contacting us. If you have any further queries or require additional information you may find the following “frequently asked questions” page on our website useful: http://travel.surreycc.gov.uk/faq.aspx

The reply was in response to my message below to the team regarding the lights:

Traffic signals team: TESCO lights malfunctioning, Haslemere – The traffic lights at Tesco, Haslemere are malfunctioning- with lights sticking on green/red- with over 20 minute waits to exit the Tesco store. This is leading to conflict between drivers.

Please could this issue be addressed as soon as possible- please let me know when the issue will be resolved.



Many thanks

Cllr Nikki Barton

Advice from The Rotary Club of Haslemere regarding Vaccination

I am sharing this checklist produced by The Rotary Club Of Haslemere regarding the vaccination programme.

There is so much confusion about the vaccination process and far too many scams happening right now. Although there is no definite process in place we thought to share some important points to consider. They suggest this list which should be used as a guideline. Check https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus if in doubt.

1. Do not ring your GP, hospital or the NHS for an appointment. Everyone is on their database and should be offered an appointment, by post or phone, to go to a vaccination hub or their GP when their “number” comes up. If you would find it difficult to get to a vaccination Hub you may request that you have an appointment with your GP or somewhere more local.

2. Write your NHS number on a piece of paper and keep it by your phone. You could be asked for this when you respond to their initial contact. If you don’t know your NHS number it can be found on any documentation you will have received previously from your GP (e.g. prescription), hospital or the NHS.

3. When you visit for your appointment wear clothing which gives you easy access to the shoulder you prefer the injection to be in. This is to avoid queues forming e.g. whilst people struggle with multiple layers of tight fitting clothing.

4. Very few people have any adverse reaction to the injection, except for a small pin prick from the needle and maybe a slight warm feeling. You will be required to sit quietly for 15 minutes after the injection whilst the staff observe you to ensure there is no adverse reaction.

5. The whole procedure from check-in on arrival to departure after the 15 minute observation should take about 30 minutes, but be prepared for delays if people arrive unprepared.

6. If you have an adverse reaction when you get home it is probably best to phone 111 letting them know what you have just experienced following a recent vaccination.

7. Only phone your GP Surgery about a Covid vaccination if you hear via the media/press that your age group has been fully vaccinated, but you haven’t.

8. More detailed information will be given to you during your appointment.
