We begin this week’s Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper local news section with tributes from Surrey leaders to the Duke of Edinburgh. As well as many community stories, we have an update on the Coronovirus vacination rollout and a warning from Surrey Police about an Amazon ‘brushing scam’. We have wildlife news with a story about how the Wildlife Trusts charity is helping the endangered South East Stag beetle and feature Tony Drakeford’s “Nature Notes”. We also have information about the first Hampton Court Palace Tulip Festival and details of the opening of Hobbledown farm. We also have an interesting story about Boxhill including which Jane Austin novel it’s menitoned in.
We finish with exciting news on research into genetic eye conditions from Epsom and Ewell Talking Newspaper Chairman Judy Sarssam, following her attendance at a Retina UK conference.
