    Recent visits and events

     

    • Chairman’s Volunteers’ Reception – last month saw the fifth Volunteers’ Awards evening since its inception, celebrating those who work tirelessly in their communities for the benefit of local residents. It was truly inspiring, humbling and heart-warming.

     

    Details of the next Volunteer’s Reception, which will be held in the spring, will be sent shortly from my office and I invite each of you to nominate at least one volunteer from your area who is deserving of an award.

     

    • Remembrance – Members and staff of Surrey County Council came together to remember and commemorate those who fought for our freedoms, those who lost their lives and those who continue to fight for our country and freedoms today.

     

    • Long Service Awards – We celebrated the loyalty, dedication and hard work of colleagues with 25 and 40 years of service to Surrey County Council. It was a wonderful afternoon full of celebration.

     

    • I would like to wish everyone a safe, healthy and happy Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in 2020.
