Surrey Heath loses a true community champion – Kevin Daley

Kevin DaleyIt is with great sadness that I write this blog. I have just received the news that the chairman of the Mytchett, Frimley Green and Deepcut Society Kevin Daley passed away last night.

I have known Kevin almost since I have lived in Surrey Heath since 2003 and he was one of if not the most active members of the community.

He was involved in many local community activism campaigns. Most notebly (to my mind) he was heavily involved with the campaign in respect of the increase in flights at Farnborough Airport.

Kevin was also one of the founders of Community Street Watch which played a key role in directly tackling anti-social behaviour in Mytchett. This was done by bridging the gap between young and old through engagement with our young people in the community. A very successful initiative.

If it were not for the constant pressure applied by the likes of Kevin Daley, our community would not be anywhere near as peaceful or such an enjoyable place to live.

His loss to the community cannot be understated.

My thoughts are with his wife, family and friends at this very sad time.
