Welcome to Knaphill
Posted on July 21, 2014 by Andy Hills
This is the website for the Knaphill Residents’ Association, bringing you news of the village, details on the annual Knaphill village show and helping our community.
From Andy Hills (Follow on Twitter @Hillsy101)
“Come and have your say in the Knaphill Forum!
If you have any news to share, sightings, quirks and irks about Knaphill then why not try tweeting it to @knaphillKRA or to Mal Foster at the Knaphillian? I appreciate that the vast majority of the village aren’t that concerned about tweeting or reporting on village news but for the hardcore few, we ALL really appreciate the interaction! It doesn’t matter who you prefer to tweet or communicate to, as long as the news gets out there to you, the residents. You can also create debate in the Knaphill Forum and talk things through with other users.
We’re actively looking for regular contributors to the magazine and website – get your news and questions out there! Time pressures are affecting a lot of volunteers in the village and the residents’ association is no different. If anyone fancies stepping in and helping out it would be most appreciated.
Don’t forget you can always have your say and leave a comment or send in your items for publication in the website or magazine. “

If you have something to mention, just email or tweet the KRA @knaphillkra
- A fantastic turnout for the 2014 village show!
- Plans for old library site REJECTED
- Village meeting to be held in September
- Keep reporting the woeful state of the roads and pavements to SCC! You can REPORT POT HOLES HERE (SCC)
I’ve added a forum area to the website called, unimaginatively, the Knaphill Forum. ALL ARE WELCOME (including councillors) and here you can have your say, express your views, compliment or complain. Simple to use and you can pass comment on anything you like. It is simply another way of getting in contact or to state your piece.
Just see the Planning section above!
“Cars Wanted” signs NOT wanted!
The illegal signage on traffic lights continue to blight the village and surrounding areas. Whereas everyone does have the right to make a living, it is clearly preferred (our poll statistic was the 91% wanted them removed) that people advertise in line with normal rules. Following advice from Surrey Highways, they state it is their responsibility to remove the flyers and you can report them via the SCC website here and selecting ”Advertising – over crowded’. It may be more practical however for passers by to simply take them down.
Ongoing SCC review of on-street parking
Surrey County Council are, over the next 12 months, going to be looking at on-street parking in the area. If you have a black spot in mind please let us know below (Quick note – when clicking ‘view results’ it doesn’t show individual comments but be assured we are logging them) Some of the latest records can be seen here
The Knaphill Cabin – a youth activity club set up with the KRA in 2009 and continuing to offer young people in Knaphill something to do of their evenings. Please email email@example.com for details.
eNews & Bulletin
We have an eNewsletter to better help us stay in touch with Members. It is designed, in part, to address one of our shortcomings in communication with Members who have rightly felt in the past that we haven’t been as chatty as we could have been. While being created specifically for Members of the KRA, it is currently open to all and we would appreciate any feedback you can give.
It will deliver information about the village in a timely manner direct to your inbox so if you’d like to receive this service, please sign up!
