Operatives have attended the site today and made a start on the large number of fly tips around the edges of both playing fields. Initial rough estimates are that there could be as much as 25 tonnes of debris and rubbish left by the travellers. This consists of a large amount of garden waste from landscape gardening works undertaken by the travellers as well as building rubble and other commercial type waste. I have posted a video on my facebook page which shows the extent of the flytips and rubbish at www.facebook.com/DeepcutDeach
There is also a lot litter and rubbish sacks to be cleared away and that phase of the clean up operation begins early tomorrow morning.
I would like to appeal to local residents to stay away from the two fields that were occupied by the Travellers until council operatives have had chance to clear away the debris, some of which could be potentially hazardous.

The top Model (www.topmodeluk.com) professional model search competition is now in its 9th hugely successful year and in 2011 expanded in to the international market with Top model worldwide http://www.topmodelworldwide.com). The current 2015 competitions will reach their climax at the Hilton London Metropole Grand Finals on March 13th and 14th 2015 with over 4,000 entries having been received and with over 160 finalists from across the UK, and globally, competing in six main show categories.
The Top Model competitions are not beauty pageants but pride themselves on their pure model search ethos, all of the top prizes and opportunities for the finalists and award winners being focused on the fashion and model industries. The grand finalist selections and the eventual awards are all decided by industry experts, not by public voting, with the finalists walking in a professionally produced international runway show finals.
A whole host of major awards and prizes are once again up for grabs in 2015 with the prize listing being regularly added to and updated. The prizes will include; International Travel, Beauty Products, Goodie Bags, Professional Photographic Shoots, Free Styling & Hair Cuts, Spa Breaks, London Fashion Week opportunities, and much much more! Details can be found at www.topmodeluk.com and www.topmodelworldwide.com .
In addition to the model finalists themselves, a stunning line-up of Designers grace the Top Model runway each year, dressing our finalists as an integral part of the Grand Final show weekend.
Applications are accepted over a five month period between August and December each year as part of a UK and international wide search for the best new up-and-coming model talent.
In addition to Top Model being a major UK and International model search, each year Top Model adopts a chosen charity to raise awareness for and to support. For 2015, Top Model will once again be supporting childhood cancer charity CHILDREN with CANCER UK www.childrenwithcancer.org.uk. In 2014 Top Model raised over £16,000 for the charity and we hope to beat this total in 2015. Top Model has raised over £60,000 for the charity since adopting them in 2010.

Surrey Heath Museum and Surrey Heath Borough Council Greenspace Team are launching a competition to design a Mosaic to be laid in front of the Obelisk in Camberley Town Park on Knoll Road and are looking for Surrey Heath residents to flex their artistic talent and get involved.
Surrey Heath residents are invited to enter their own design for a mosaic panel which will be created outside the museum entrance. The design needs to be eye catching and represent a ward of Surrey Heath; the winning designs will then sit around a central circle in front of the iconic camberley landmark the Obelisk.
The Surrey Heath wards that need to be individually represented are:
Bagshot, Bisley, Chobham, Frimley, Frimley Green, Heatherside, Lightwater, Mytchett and Deepcut, Old Dean, Parkside, St. Michaels, St. Pauls, Camberley Town, Watchetts,
West End and Windlesham.
The competition is open to all ages and there is no previous experience of working with mosaics required. Winning entrants will have the opportunity to create their winning design in the final mosaic. The design requirements and specifications can be found on the entry form which entrants can download from http://www.surreyheath.gov.uk or pick up from Surrey Heath Museum. The deadline for entries is 21st June 2013 and winners will be notified the following week. The museum anticipates the Mosaic will be in place by the autumn of 2013.
The Surrey Heath Museum Community Mosaic has been made possible thanks to the funding received from local donors, Friends of Surrey Heath Museum and Surrey County Council. The mosaic forms part of the lasting legacy from the ‘Nepali Connections’ exhibition that was on display at the museum in 2012.
The incident happened at around 11.45am on Thursday 16 May when two men entered the site and tried to force open a large container of tools and items of machinery and plant. Fortunately they were disturbed and left the scene in a white LDV pick up van with high sided mesh grates on the side containing items of scrap and washing machines.
The first offender is described as white, in his late twenties to early thirties with tanned skin. He was around 6ft tall and had dark swept back hair. He was wearing jeans, a jumper and brown boots.
The second offender is described as white, in his late teens to early twenties also with tanned skin. He was approximately 5ft 8” tall and had blonde swept back hair.
This crime is being linked to the theft of two compressors from the same site sometime between 3-7 May.
DC Clare Nettleton said: “We have good descriptions of the suspects and their get away vehicle and we would like to hear from anyone who may have any information about this offence or has seen the vehicle in the area recently.”
Anyone with information should call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference SH/13/2173.
