It 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.
Detectives in Camberley are appealing for witnesses after a car was stolen following a burglary in Frimley Green.
The incident, in which the offender or offenders forced their way into a house off the Frimley Green Road, stole the car keys and made off in a black Ford Fiesta, happened in the early hours of Friday, 16 October.
The car which has the registration EX56 MWE was removed from outside the property sometime between 1am and 6am.
Detective Constable Andy Walsh investigating said: “I am asking anyone who may have seen the vehicle in the vicinity or who may have witnessed any suspicious activity in the time leading up to the burglary to call officers as soon as possible. This type of offence causes untoward damage, both emotionally and practically, to the victim who was in the house at the time of the break-in. Please help us find those responsible and bring them to justice.”
