The Pyrford Song

Hi folks
We hope you are all keeping safe and coping with the lockdown.  Not long now till Boris releases us!  It has certainly decimated our activities: closed the Village Hall, closed the Social Club and the Cricket Club.  Sadly, the VE75 Celebration had to  be cancelled, and too the Pyrford & Wisley Annual Flower Show and finally the Old House Open Day has suffered a blow before it got started.  I am however convinced that all these things will spring back once we are out of this mess.  In fact, the Flower Show will be
 back in 2021 on 10th July, I understand.

 Desperate times - but fortunately we can start this edition with a bit of a chuckle maker:
The Pyrford Song – A jolly little ditty that’s been doing the rounds and we hope will brighten you all up.  It’s all about Pyrford in lockdown and all in aid of Woking Hospice and NHS Charities Together.  For those who haven’t seen it and those who want another little titter click the video play button above.  Many thanks to Ian Wishart for bringing a little light to a gloomy lockdown!!!
Conservation Noticeboard  This month we are launching our Conservation Noticeboard.  We are lucky in Pyrford to enjoy a very varied environment and have residents who genuinely care about conservation so the Noticeboard will provide a way to circulate news of what is going on.  To kick things off we have a set of posts covering the maintenance of our footpaths, Wheelers Farm and The Old House.  Access is via the homepage item on Conservation at or, to go straight to the Noticeboard, click .    If any of you have news that we could include, next time, please contact us by email at . 

The Old House  the newly acquired land has now been fenced off from the Twisted Stone property and “wilding” has commenced with native species.  Joy reports a lot of new wildlife sightings.  For details follow the link on the homepage or click to go direct.   
Site Allocations DPD – Covid-19 has also impacted Woking development plans and the final report from the Examination in Public is now unlikely before the end of July.

Twisted Stone
“Many of you have raised concerns about various activities at Twisted Stone Golf Club and access to the footpath running across the golf course to Dodds Lane.  PNF have written to the Footpath Team at Surrey County Council (SCC) expressing the concerns of the community. SCC have confirmed that the Public Right of Way (FP88) must be safe and remain open to the public.  

PNF Chairmanship. 
Finally, you will recall that I originally volunteered as Chairman for 6 months.  We've recently discussed "what next" and I am happy to say I'll be staying on, at least, until the next AGM in November.

That's all for now so stay safe and well everyone.

Andy Grimshaw
PNF Chairman
