While we all hope that the coronavirus will run its course in as short a time as possible so we can get back to normal, we must be aware that there will be a number of people in our community who are more isolated than usual, may need help, support or just a bit of company.
It was great to see our Limpsfield Parish Council orange bins going to a good home yesterday. The lovely chaps at Men’s Sheds in Oxted (based at The Woodhouse Centre) will be using them to store their wood and tools for workshops. They’re also turning our old suggestions boxes into bird nesting boxes.
Last week’s Council meeting agreed an increase of £5 a year for a Band D property in Tandridge District Council’s share of the council tax for 2020/2021. The meeting also agreed the Council’s budget for next year. Limpsfield’s Band D Council Tax for 2020/2021 will be £2,019.25.

Our resident history buff, Cllr Ashley Fosdike has been clearing out the Parish Office (the original office located at The Pound on Wolfs Row) and sorting / reviving all the historical documents, so we can get them properly archived and safe for future generations.
She’s found some amazing treasures, some going back to the 1700s, including deeds, maps, poor relief payments, agenda and minutes.
Amongst these items she also uncovered a folder of non-Parish Council related letters and documents belonging to a certain WH Wood (Walter Wood), who was apparently a local estate agent (based on Limpsfield High Street) and former Clerk to the Limpsfield Parish Council for an astounding 39 years until the end of the 1950s. He died in 1963 and was married to an E Wood and we believe lived in Ellice Road, Oxted.
Does anyone know WH Wood’s family? We’d love to be able to return the folder to them if they are interested in the contents (if not, we can archive).
