An Amazing Day at Cheam Charter Fair

by Mary Burstow on 18 May, 2014

http://www.tashastearoom.co.uk/ Yesterday was Cheam Charter Fair Day.  What an amazing day it was.  70 Stalls, hundreds of people, beautiful sunshine and a warm happy atmosphere.  The fair has become a very good place for local charities, cubs, scouts and guides, new start up businesses and local traders to promote themselves and raise money.  It is […]

Tidying up after Cheam Charter Fair

by Mary Burstow on 18 May, 2014

We have been running a revived Cheam Charter Fair on a Saturday for 3 years.  It always starts at 9:00 when St Dunstans School reads out the Charter and dances to Greensleeves.  But what really surprises me is how the fair always just winds down at around 1:00.  By 2:00 the crowds have melted away, […]

The Dragons Teeth need a filling

by Mary Burstow on 27 January, 2014

I noticed that some of the Dragons Teeth in Park Lane are looking incredibly cracked.  These have now been reported to Sutton Council and they will be replaced.  I was told: The site has been surveyed and six slabs will need replacing.  Unfortunately the paving is now only available in grey.  A bit like the […]

St Dunstans Alleyway – Litter Picked up

by Mary Burstow on 16 February, 2013

The Alley way which runs from St Dunstans Church Yard to Church Farm Lane was starting to look dreadful.  The winter winds and careless passers by, had left lots of litter piling up. I reported it to Sutton Council, who made sure that the next time the street cleaner went down Church Farm lane, it […]

New Dog Poo Sign

by Mary Burstow on 14 July, 2012

I do like this new sign which has been sprayed onto the alleyway near Springclose Lane.  But what a shame that responsible dog owners do not train their dogs to poo on grass, then pick it up in a plastic bag and throw it away in a bin. Indy tried to poo on the pavement […]

Our Trees need prunning!

by Mary Burstow on 8 July, 2012

Lots of rainfall and warm sunshine has meant that the vegetation has put on rather a sprint.  Clearly nobody told the roadside trees, that they could not do this!!  I saw two trees one in Springclose Lane and the other in Quarry Park Road, both of which badly need a good prune, as they are […]

A brilliant Cheam Charter Fair

by Mary Burstow on 20 May, 2012

“This is the best Cheam Charter Fair in over 40 years”.  These were the words of one old Cheam resident, which made me very happy to hear.  The fair was one of those events which demonstrated what a wonderful village Cheam is to live in.  We must have had over 60 stalls.  They were a […]

Disappearing Lamp post in Church Farm Lane

by Mary Burstow on 2 May, 2012

This poor lamp post in Church Farm Lane is disappearing under the Ivy.  I am very pleased to report that now that I have reported it to the council they will be cutting it down.  As the lamp lights a nasty blind spot, it is very important.

Ivy Covered Lamp Post

by Mary Burstow on 21 April, 2012

I have reported this Lamp Post in Spring Close Lane.  I am fairly sure it is the councils responsibility and is not privately owned.  Hopefully the council can pull down the Ivy and un cover the lamp post again.  Given how poorly lit this part of the road is, I think it is really important […]

Love Lane Job Done

by Mary Burstow on 1 November, 2011

I am so pleased that after a spot of chasing, the problem of miss leading road signs in Love Lane and Church Farm lane has now been solved.  The signs have now been moved and hopefully it is much clearer where the two roads are.  Parcels will no longer be miss delivered and Taxi drivers […]
