Today, 6th February, we were honoured to have a visit from our President, the Mayor of Epsom and Ewell, Councillor John Beckett. Whilst he was with us he recorded an audio interview with, EETN volunteer, Jan Collier. The Mayor answers listeners questions and provides information on the borough’s climate change action plan such as installing electric charging points, boosting biodiversity and the removal of single use plastics. He also describes the changes currently being made to Epsom’s marketplace.

Recently we were fortunate to have a visit from PC Elena Boafo, our local Specialist Neighbourhood Officer, who came in to the EETN studio to discuss her work in Epsom and Ewell. Jan Collier conducted the interview and obtained some interesting and useful information for us all.
Our Chairman Judy Sarssam would like to wish our listeners and our volunteers a very Happy Christmas.
At our Christmas get-together following our recording on December 12th, Judy said: ‘What a very special and valuable group keep the Charity producing our weekly news, articles and podcasts. We have been able to modernise our recording system and are researching the best way forward for the duplicating equipment, thanks to the generous money raised during the last year by Councillor Neil Dallen during his term as Mayor. A big thank you to all those who have contributed to maintaining the free service for the last 45 years. It is an achievement which Epsom and Ewell can be very proud of.’
