Thank you residents.

July 31, 2010 Leave a comment


Many thanks to all those residents who attended last Mondays residents meeting at the Corner House.

It was our best attended meeting ever and it was certainly our most ‘lively!’

Amongst other things, through residents giving their views followed by discussion we were pleased to obtain an agreed consensus on the current double yellow line proposals for Ellerton and Bond roads.
This has now been taken away by RBKT and a new draft proposal will be drafted reflecting residents wishes.

By having well attended residents meetings EBRRA is able to obtain a balanced consensus of residents views which helps us all to be fair – and seen to be so – which is important.

So, please do attend our future meetings and have your say.
We can’t I’m afraid promise they will be quite as ‘lively’ – but who knows?

It’s your association and the committee need your views.

Our next residents meeting will be end of October early November. 

Thanks again for attending.

Proposed corner double yellow lining.

July 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Suggestions by EBRRA to RBKT early last year for double yellow lines on some corner junctions of Ellerton and Bond Road – which were discussed and approved on safety grounds for both motorists and pedestrians at two residents meetings during 2009 have been combined with RBKT proposals for yellow lining on parts of the triangle garden to facilitate easy access for lorries to the pending new construction site and for Environment Agency access to the culvert in Ellerton Road. 

The proposals were discussed for a considerable amount of time during the Surbiton Neighbourhood Committee meeting on June 16th but approval was not possible owing to late declarations of opposition to some of the propsals [of which EBRRA were unaware] and the matter was deferred without decision.

The propsals will again be discussed at EBRRA’s residents meeting next Monday July 26th with both RBKT and our Councillors present in order to get a decision this time.

All residents are requested to try and attend this meeting in order to gain a balanced view on decisions regarding these proposals.

What a lovely afternoon.

EBRRA’s Big Lunch a great success.

250 – or more Ellerton and Bond Road residents joined together yesterday to share lunch and a few hours together.

Bond Road section.

The event exceeded even the wildist of the committee’s expectations.

Ellerton Road looking north.

Everyone said the really enjoyed it and we must do it again.  

Ellerton Road looking south.

Residents and children re-claimed the streets for a few traffic free hours.

The activity hub.

Sadly the afternoon had to come to an end and the bunting taken down …….

…… but some people just didn’t want to go home!

The EBRRA committee are very grateful to all the helpers, residents who gave donations towards EBBRA’s running costs, purchased raffle tickets and donated prizes to the raffle.

But special thanks to all our residents and children who attended the BigLunch which made it the success it was.

We CAN do it – and more if we work together.

A fuller report will appear later with more photos and acknowledgements to helpers.

The Big Lunch – nearly here.

July 15, 2010 4 comments


Just a few days to go now before our big community event.
Fingers crossed for fine sunny weather.

Things to do.

Balloons & Bunting to be blown up and fixed on Saturday the 17th from 6pm – all help welcome.

We are still short of raffle prizes so would be grateful for any offers – before – or on the day please.

Ellerton Road will be closed for several hours during the Big Lunch from Dennan Road to Tolworth Park Road.
And Bond Road will be closed at the same time from Ellerton Road to Tolworth Park Road.
It would be appreciated if people could temporarily remove their cars from these sections before the Big Lunch.

Buckets for donations towards the running costs of EBRRA will be ‘doing the rounds’ during the Big Lunch and any amount large or small will be gratefully accepted.

The day.

This will be an informal event giving residents of Ellerton and Bond Road the chance to meet, share some time for a chat and to make new friends.

The Flight Dance Group will be performing at 1 PM, then holding a 1/4 hour dance workshop followed by another performance.

A jazz group will be providing music during the lunch.

There will be a raffle with some great prizes.

Face painting for children – with pre issued free vouchers – £4 for visiting children.

Childrens ‘garden in a box’ competition – entries early please – ready for judging.

A ‘street mystery prize’ – remember to bring your recently delivered street numbered Big Lunch card.

And, of course, a time to chate to the EBRRA committee informally regarding any concerns you have.

We look forward to meeting as many residents as possible – so do please try to attend and have a nice day.
