Mole Valley Draft Local Plan - What happens next?
One of the benefits of this lockdown situation is the lack of traffic, road and air, with the result that we have fresh non-polluted air to breathe. PLEASE don't spoli it by burning rubbish in the garden. People who are housebound want to enjoy their gardens and not have to go indoors and shut doors and windows to avoid the stink!
Road Stewards have been asked to not collect subs until the present crisis has abated. Anyone wanting to pay their subs can do so online via Bank Transfer. Details are as follows:-
Account: ARA Members account
Sort Code: 30-93-08
Account Number: 19412868
Reference: The payment reference is important - your name won’t suffice- and will allow ARA to correctly identify the payee, so please use your House No/Name and the second part of your Postcode, for example ‘Thistledome 2ES’ or '6A 1AR'.
Standing Orders should ideally be dated 1st February, so please request an immediate payment and then annually w.e.f. 1/2/2020
Thank you for your continued support.
