Crawley BC and Crawley Museum Society Awarded £1.1 Million for New Museum
Crawley Borough Council and Crawley Museum Society, have been awarded over £1million by the Heritage Lottery Fund to provide a new museum in the town centre.
Work on the new museum, which will be located in The Tree and The Tree Annexe with a glass link between the two, is expected to start in April 2015 and take around 18 months to complete.
The project will see The Tree restored, renovated and fitted out as a new museum space. There’ll also be specialist display facilities and equipment in The Tree and The Tree Annexe, and lots of exciting opportunities ahead for volunteers and the public to get involved.
The current museum in Goffs Park House is cramped and only holds about 10 per cent of the society’s artefacts.
Reigate MP Opposes Hard Runway at Redhill Aerodrome
Reigate MP, Crispin Blunt, has lodged his formal opposition to the planning application for a hard runway at Redhill Aerodrome.
In a joint letter with fellow East Surrey MP, Sam Gyimah, Mr Blunt says that he feels there are no special circumstances to justify the development of the green belt in this area.
Urging the rejection of the hard-surface runway, the letter also states that such a plan would have a detrimental effect on the landscape and would increase noise and light pollution in the area.
The planning appeal will be heard in January 2014

An increasing number of reports of fraudster scams have been reported to surrey police.
On each occasion the victim receives a phone call from someone claiming to be a police officer tell them that their card has been compromised and that they need to call the bank and cancel it.
They then say that a courier will be round to collect the card.
Meanwhile, the fraudster stays on the line, leaving it open and obtains the victim’s bank details while they think they are phoning the bank. A courier – sometimes a taxi – calls at the victim’s address saying they have been sent by the police to collect the parcel.
If you’ve received any calls of this nature, please call Surrey Police on 101
