Residents of East Clandon & West Horsley who would like to apply for a local resident walking permit (not required for National Trust members) to allow walking in the parkland at Hatchlands during opening hours - please contact Susi Batchelor at the Hatchlands Estate office (Hatchlands@nationaltrust.org.uk or 01483 222 482) with your name and address, and Susi will happily issue you with one. From this year, there will be no expiry date on the permit, so there is no longer a need to apply each year as you have in the past, but the permit is just for named residents whilst living in East Clandon or West Horsley, so please let us know if you move. We will contact you if there are any changes to the scheme.
If you have a power cut call 105 - a new, free service. 105 is a new number that you can call to report or get information about a power cut. It will put you through to your local electricity network operator - the company that manages the cables, wires and substations that bring electricity into homes and businesses in your area. Regardless of where your electricity comes from, if you live in England, Scotland or wales you can call the number for free.
You can also call 105 if you spot damage to electricity power lines and substations that could put you, or someone else, in danger. If there's a serious immediate risk, call the emergency services too. To find out more, go to http://www.powercut105.com/
UK Power Networks still runs a Priority Services Register for your constituents who may be more vulnerable in a power cut e.g. older people, those dependent on medical equipment, parents of young children etc. To join, they can call 0800 1699970, email firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online at www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/priority
