myKnaphill Summer 2020 – Online Issue

Summer 2020 has had an unusual start! What with one thing and another (!), we’ve made the difficult decision to only produce an online version of our quarterly magazine, myKnaphill. This decision was not taken lightly, but we feel it’s in the best interests of everyone involved. Rest assured that the issue still contains all the usual features and content that you’ve come to expect from us, and trust that we really hope to be back up and running in a more normal way by the Autumn.

Knaphill Village Show Cancelled

It is with great sadness that the Knaphill Village Show organising committee have decided to cancel the 2020 Show, due to take place on Saturday 18th July, 2020, at Mizen’s Railway.

Whilst we are all remaining very positive and hopeful that the lockdown will be over by then, we cannot be assured that it will be the case. We are just getting to the organisation stage of having to spend money on different elements of it, and as such, now seems like a good time to put the brakes on, as many local events are doing the same.

As the Show is run by volunteers and operates on a not for profit basis (as does the Residents Association who organise it) we cannot, in clear conscience make financial commitments for a Show that might not be able to take place.

We hope you understand, and that you will join us on Saturday 17th July, 2021, when we really hope to celebrate in style!

Committee Meeting Minutes – September 2019

If you weren’t able to join us at the latest KRA committee meeting then take a look here to see what was discussed and agreed:

Community Speedwatch Knaphill

The KRA often hears from local residents that speeding in the area is a big worry. Most of our roads are 30 mph, and 40 mph in just a few areas, but the average speed at which people travel through our village often seems significantly in excess of that. With a high proportion of elderly and young people in our village, we felt it time to take action.

Together with our councillors, a number of the committee have undertaken the training to implement Community Speedwatch (CSW), and in the last month we have begun our first monitoring sessions. We hope to make this a monthly activity.

CSW is a national initiative where active members of local communities join with the support of the Police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices. Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by neighbourhood policing team (NPT) staff. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.

The CSW is free to take part in, and entirely run by volunteers, so if vehicle speed is of a concern to you, and you would also be interested in supporting us to try to make our village safer, then please do get in touch.

Our aim is to make the streets of our village safer by making drivers aware of their speeds and when they are exceeding them.
