Working to ensure Beverley always looks its best: Community cleanups

Community Cleanup
Beverley Ward Conservatives have led a series of community cleanups

With the help of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association (AMA), local Conservative councillors have cleaned up the Green Lane recreation ground and, with the resurfacing of the cycle/footpath across the Hogsmill to Berrylands, have improved the access and cleanliness of this part of the ward.

We have also been helped by pupils of Burlington Junior School and other residents to clean up the Blagdon open space. This clean–up follows on from the letter writing competition in the school initiated by Cllr Terry Paton after his election in the by-election of 2013.

Your local team of Conservative councillors are in discussion with Network Rail, the AMA and other volunteer groups about future clean-ups around the ward to make sure that New Malden is clean and looked after. 

Local Ward Councillor, Paul Bedforth said:KMB Bedforth

 The community cleanups are a great way to get outdoors and help your local community. If you would like to take part in a community clean-up in the future, please get in touch and we’ll make sure that you’re invited.

Terry Paton reflects on the lost opportunity to improve safety at the Fountain

 Terry Paton Cllr Terry Paton writes:

Safety is a big issue around the Fountain Roundabout, which has an accident rate is three times higher than that of comparable roundabouts in the Borough. There is conflict between drivers changing lanes, and it is not safe for cyclists or pedestrians.

We know that 66 people have been injured in accidents reported to the police over the past ten years and one person has been killed. This excludes minor accidents, which are not recorded if no one is injured.
