I hope that you have now all seen the new Pixham signs and noticeboard that went up in Pixham Lane this week.  They look fantastic!


The Dorking Advertiser will be featuring a story this week and will be taking a photograph tomorrow (Monday 12th) 1.00pm by the Welcome to Pixham sign on Pixham Lane outside Friend's Provident.  It would be great to get as many resident's there are possible so please pop along if you can make it.


Nicole le Marie at the Ad is also keen to get resident's views on why having an identity for the Pixham community is important for them.  If you are able to speak to her then please give me a call on 07775 554382 and I will put you in touch. It would be great to give her a few people to talk to.

PRA joining up with the Dorking Advertiser

Make sure you buy your copy of the Dorking Advertiser this week.  Paul Finch and I met with the newspaper last week and as a result two stories will  feature in Thursday's edition regarding issues that we as a community feel strongly about - potential closure of Pixham Annexe and Speedwatch.  A number of local residents have given their views and have had their photos taken.  The Dorking Advertiser is very interested in our news and so watch this space for future reports - the next one will be the Fun Day, a photographer will be there on the day!  If you have any stories you would like me to put forward then please don't hesitate to contact me.

Pixham Resident's Association Keeping Up With The Jones'

posted 28 Mar 2009, 08:28 by Unknown user   [ updated 28 Mar 2009, 08:27 ]

As a newly established association we are keen to ensure we are getting things right for the residents of Pixham. With that in mind we want to call on and learn from the expertise of others. One way we can do this is to talk to our neighbours about their success.

We met recently with the Chairman of the Westhumble Resident's Association, Peter Bunn. Peter very kindly gave us an evening of his time to talk to us about the Westhumble format, the activities they undertake, what works and what doesn't. They have been established for several years and so we felt they must be doing something right! Overall, It was a great opportunity for us to discuss our current initiatives and plans to check that we are going in the right direction.

So what did we find out? Very encouragingly, we found out that we have made a great start. We have the correct format, we are making the right contacts and even more importantly we are doing the right things. We have lots of initiatives progressing at pace. Not least our Speedwatch and Pixham Identity initiatives are full speed ahead.

And what did we learn from Westhumble? We learnt that they are very focused on those issues that matter to their whole community. They are realistic in their approach and do not bite off more than they can chew. They are also keen for us to support each other and a Pixham vs Westhumble Rounders Match could be in the planning!!

We hope you agree that things are going well but we need to keep learning and your feedback and help will be invaluable. We have lots of local people doing some great work - but we're always looking for more. To be successful we need to have your ideas, your support and your participation.

If you feel that you can contribute more, have ideas to improve Pixham or have suggestions for other organisations/groups that we should meet then let us know. Please feel free to contact any of the Committee or Taskforce members at anytime.
