Re-establishing Pixham Village

Work has commenced on re establishing the identity of Pixham. As many of you are aware in 1928 Pixham as it existed then, on the fringes of the town was absorbed by the Urban District Council into Dorking, enlarging Surrey’s smallest urban district by approximately one third. It is our belief that Pixham should be recognised in it’s own right once again and to this end we are working to raise the profile of Pixham re establishing it’s place as an important community on the fringe of the town. 

We are in the process of sourcing a suite of signs to welcome and inform both the community and visitors to Pixham. The intention is to place a welcome to Pixham sign at either end of the lane, with further matching signs which will incorporate notice boards at the school, church and cricket club. Each sign will clearly be recognisable as a Pixham community sign, and will incorporate the neighbourhood watch logo and welcome careful drivers.

Our other aim is to personalise the lane a little by planting up certain areas, replacing missing trees and generally making the area a little more cared for and therefore a lot nicer place to live(if that’s possible). It will also become clearly  recognisable as a residential area and not a cut through, encouraging everyone who passes through to take a little more care of our environment.

If anyone is interested in getting involved in any of these activities then please contact me.
