- 27th November at the Olive Tree Pub, the next quiz night is on with curry on the menu once again due to popular demand. This night is already fully booked, however do feel free to call the Olive Tree and get yourself on the waiting list, there is an entry fee of £2.00 per person payable on the night, with an optional £10.00 per person for the curry of your choice.
- Meanwhile, if you’re feeling super-organised, why not book for the Christmas quiz night, scheduled for 11th December, as there are still spaces available. The set meal available is a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings, at a cost of £15.00 per person. Entrants are encouraged to get into the Christmas spirit and wear a festive jumper, and as usual there will be a generous cash prize for the winning team.
- We have decided to run a photo competition for local residents, so dust off those cameras and get clicking! There will be two age groups categories: 5 - 17 years and 18+. The winner from each category will receive a £20 Amazon voucher. The winning pictures will be published in the next issue, alongside a selection of the best entries. There are no rules, other than they must have a local connection. This shouldn’t be too difficult, as here in Sutton Green we are lucky enough to live amongst some of the most beautiful countryside, varied wildlife and rural architecture in the country, together with some colourful characters to boot!
- Please email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can send in more than one, and feel free to use filters and editing tools to produce the best picture you can. Be creative!

- The police sent out a warning about a spate of thefts of plant machinery from building sites and private driveways in neighbouring boroughs, then in September a shed at Sutton Green Golf Club was broken into and valuable garden machinery stolen. Please make sure all your garden and building equipment is locked away safely.
- In Woking bike thefts seem to top the list of reported crimes most weeks. Here are the police’s top tips for keeping your bike safe: Store your bike in a locked shed or garage. Take photos of your bike including the serial number then register it on immobilise.com. Also mark or tag it. If you need to leave your bike outside use a good lock, hardened steel D-locks are recommended. Remove the saddle or front wheel and detach any lights or equipment.

- The colours of the trees are beginning to turn, particularly the hazel and oaks, and the temperatures are creeping down ever so slightly. Mornings are cloaked in mists, which are later burned off by the warm autumnal sun. Sloes, haw berries and rosehips adorn the hedgerows and there is still the odd bunch of blackberries around. The warm and increasingly damp weather will bring various fungi fruiting bodies out, particularly in more wooded areas. Swallows, swifts, house martins and yellow wagtails will be heading south, following the warmer weather. Various winter thrushes, geese and swans will replace them on wet meadows, searching for food.
- My summer work program is coming to an end and although I will still be cutting the lock sides and mooring lines, I am beginning a few winter tasks already. My volunteers have been busy on sections of offside cutback near Windmill Bridge and also upstream near Send Church Bridge. We have also managed to fix a couple of areas of bank erosion by putting in wooden revetments to prevent further encroachment of the towpath. All repair material was sourced from previous winter cutbacks and stored until seasoned. If you fancy having a look at one, we have fixed one just up from Triggs Lock, opposite the mooring line. Soon the maintenance team will backfill with dredging’s when passing.
- Soon I will begin strimming the towpaths to ground level, to review the banks and remove the build up of dead material. The embankment upstream of Warehams Bridge is due to be partially cleared this year so that we can inspect for potential leaks. This is dictated by a rotational plan in which each embankment is cleared and reviewed every 5 years. The second half of the willow pollards at Triggs Lock will also be pollarded later on when all the leaves have dropped.
