8th to 21st December

Christmas Elves in the Central SANG

Calling all Elf Detectives

We have heard reports that playful Christmas Elves are heading to the Central SANGs again from 8th to 21st December.

We need some help checking up on them to make sure they are not getting into too much mischief. So why not have a festive walk through the Central SANGs and see who you spot playing in the trees!

The elves mentioned that they love receiving letters. If you would like to send them a letter or a drawing, they would certainly write back and send a little Christmas gift!

Please send letters to: The Christmas Elves, Mindenhurst Project Office, Newfoundland Road, Deepcut, GU16 6SR. Alternatively just send a photo of your letter to hello@mindenhurst.co.uk and we will pass it on.

 

Don’t forget to share pictures of your elf hunt with us on Facebook at Facebook/MindenhurstDeepcut.

May construction update

May construction update

1. Works are continuing on the Loop Road and Brunswick Road (on the barracks) where the team has been busy installing drainage,
building the new road, and creating new footpaths.

2. We will start to remove the scaffolding around St. Barbara’s Church once the external refurbishment and redecoration
works are complete. The team will begin decorating the South facing wall once the scaffolding has been removed as this area
is not accessible whilst the scaffolding is in place. We will then reinstall the church spire.

3. We will begin to create new footpaths in the Central SANGs – inside the fence line – and the Blackdown ANGST. There may be additional traffic around the Officers Mess on Blackdown Road to deliver the materials needed.

4. Highways improvement works will commence on the DIO Roads (Newfoundland, Union, and Canada Roads). This includes laying the foundation of the road, installing new surface water drainage and creating new footpaths. We will keep you informed of any work taking place around your home.

🌳 Landscaping maintenance works will continue to the Village Green, Mindenhurst Road and the Central SANGS.

Mindenhurst Hops into Spring with Easter Events

On Wednesday 5 April the Mindenhurst project team and local residents came together to celebrate Easter – and the arrival of spring – on the Village Green. The event was a huge success with over 70 children taking part in the festivities.

This year’s Easter event offered a range of activities for the whole family to enjoy. It included Easter arts and crafts, a bunny themed scavenger hunt around the Village Green, and plenty of chocolate to share.

It’s the first community event of the year at Mindenhurst, the project team has already confirmed there will be more to come.

Niki Dufour, Community Relations Manager, at Skanska, said: “It was fantastic to see so many families taking part and coming together to celebrate Easter. It was lovely to meet so many people and to see the wonderful sense of community that is developing in Mindenhurst. We really enjoy hosting community activities and events and are looking forward to more events like this in the near future.”

Mindenhurst project team takes part in the Great British Spring Clean

On Thursday 23 March the Mindenhurst team took to the streets and parks around Mindenhurst and Deepcut in an effort to tidy up the local area.

It’s the third year the project team has joined in, this year’s team effort saw them collect 10 bags of rubbish.

The Great British Spring Clean is an annual campaign which aims to keep Britain tidy and improve local places. The nationwide campaign runs from 17 March to 2 April with community clear ups taking place up and down the country.

Now in its eighth year, the Great British Spring Clean is a feel-good, national effort to clean up public spaces for everyone to enjoy. The initiative aims to eliminate litter, improve the environment in local neighbourhoods and foster a sense of community among the #LitterHeroes that take part. It is an opportunity for people to come together and make a positive impact to their community and has positive benefits for both mental and physical health.

Local residents can still take part by borrowing litter pickers from the Skanska Project Office on Newfoundland Road. Anyone who is interested should get in touch with the team by emailing hello@mindenhurst.co.uk.

Leisliane Garcia, Development Director, at Skanska, said: “Our team enjoyed getting out and about around Mindenhurst to show support for Keep Britain Tidy’s campaign, it’s as important as ever to take care of our environment. We’d like to thank the residents who gave us suggestions of the places in need of some care and attention.”

Keep hedgehogs safe this bonfire night

hedgehog-in-grass-dark
Remember to keep hedgehogs safe on bonfire night

 

🍂 Don’t build your bonfire on a pile of leaves

 

🔥 Build your bonfire when you plan to light it, not the night before

 

🔦 Lift up parts of the bonfire with a stick and use a torch to look for animals before you light it

 

🦔 Listen carefully for the hissing sound that hedgehogs make when disturbed

Wildlife Photography Competition Winner

Surrey Heath’s Mayor, Councillor Helen Whitcroft, joined Mindenhurst’s monthly community drop-in at the project office on Wednesday 31st August to announce the winner of this year’s Wild Photography Competition.

The local wildlife competition was launched during Wild Week which saw a range of activities held across Mindenhurst. The competition was open to all residents living on or around the development site at Deepcut.

Local resident, Jurgita Valaitytė-Gulbiniene, captured the winning photograph which showed a deer peering through the grass. Jurgita was awarded a framed print of her photograph plus a National Trust voucher worth £40.

Mayor Helen Whitcroft said: “It was such a joy to see all the wonderful photographs of local wildlife which our talented community have taken, and I would like to thank everyone who took part. As the quality was very high, it was difficult to pick just one, however, I am very happy to announce that Jurgita Valaitytė-Gulbiniene is the winner of the Mindenhurst Wild Photography Competition ’22, with a striking photograph of a deer. I was immediately drawn to the image since they are so associated with our local green spaces. The soft focus in the foreground really draws your eye to the deer in the centre which is looking directly back at the viewer.”

Niki Dufour, Community Relations Manager at Mindenhurst, said: “The Wild Photography Competition is just one in a host of events we’ve been running this year to bring the community together and celebrate our beautiful surroundings. We were delighted by the enthusiastic response to the competition and the standard of the entries, residents can view this year’s standout entries and find out how to get involved in other events by visiting the Mindenhurst website or liking our Facebook page.”
