Tree Planting on Cheam Rec

mary_friends-of-cheam-park_park

The Friends of Cheam Park, are planning to plant more Trees on Cheam Rec. This is to not only enhance the Rec, but also create a more wildlife friendly area and as the trees grown, will reduce the amount of water run off from Cheam Rec.

We have 40, 5 year old trees, which stand at around 1.5 – 2 meters high and over 100 saplings, which will only need to be dug in with a trowel.

The Friends of Cheam Park, with the help of local residents have now planted over 200 trees on the Rec. They have made a real difference the area. They make what was a very boring part of the Rec, with just mown grass, a real feature, which people take pleasure in visiting.

We are also hoping to secure funding for a footpath to go across the Rec, connecting the pavilion with the path down into Nonsuch Woods. All of which will make the Rec more accessible. It will also make it easier for families to walk to Little Oaks from North Cheam, rather than have to drive.

It will be on Saturday 26th November at 10 – 1pm.

Cheam Scream

Hello All!

You may have already heard or seen on the What’s on in Cheam (WOIC) Facebook page, but we are planning a special event for Cheam Village for Halloween. This came about when Lucy who runs the WOIC page approached a few of us – Sarah in Stitches, Sam in Greensleaves, Georgina in GiGi’s and Suzanne in Tasha’s Tearoom suggesting getting together to boost the profile of the Village.

The Cheam Scream is planned for Friday 28 October between 2 and 5pm. The aim is to bring people into the Village to encourage more customers into our shops and as the 28th is the last day of half term week we hope to offer some safe family fun! We are not allowing any external stalls or participants as this is for the benefit of CHEAM SHOPKEEPERS only! We hope to create a fun atmosphere at minimal expense to the families and our businesses.

The current plan is for families to start at Stitches in Mulgrave Road where they will make a small donation for a fabric trick or treat bag which they may also choose to decorate. They will be handed a map with a route into the Village and they will then have to spot which shops are taking part in the event and these shops will have sweets available for the trick or treat bags. There will also be a word puzzle to solve by finding the letters on laminated pumpkins!

The point of this note is to ask whether you would be happy to participate in Cheam Scream. This would involve the following:

– we will provide a poster for you to display to advertise the event
– we will provide a laminated pumpkin for you to place in your window in the week leading up to the 28th to show that you are participating on the day
– you will create a Halloween themed window display
– between 2 and 5pm on 28th October you will welcome your Halloween guests and hand out treats. (we are aiming to get some sweets donated by the supermarkets if possible so will supply these to you)

There will be a prize giving just before 5pm at GiGis for the best dressed child in 2 age categories and also a prize for the Shop with the best dressed window!
We are hoping that even if you do not want children visiting your shop you may be able to add a spooky touch or two to your window to give the Village a nice Halloween feel!
Please let us know by 19 Sept if you are happy to join in with this community event by e-mailing thecheamscream@yahoo.co.uk If you have any questions please either e-mail or approach any of us.

With best wishes

The Witches of Cheam!

PRESS RELEASE

Over 70% of small business owners from Surrey said they do not intend to conduct a business review

April is a month when new financial years start for small businesses and the previous month ought to be a time when owners of these businesses ought to conduct a financial business review but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Over 70% of small business owners from Surrey said they do not intend to conduct a business review before their new financial year of their businesses according to a survey conducted by GENIC Business First.

‘Some small business owners suffer from the ostrich effect. They prefer to bury their heads in the ground rather than review how their businesses have performed. If they did [conduct a review] they could identify weaknesses in their businesses and plan ahead to minimise against threats which are likely to impact their businesses in the next financial year.’ suggested a spokesperson at GENIC Business First.

Profit and loss and balance sheets from the past financial year reveal valuable insights into a business’ past performance. They provide the required data to measure for e.g. how effective a business is turning its assets into cash in order to meets it short term obligations as well as other key performance metrics.

A financial business review is a wise decision in the current climate because of the potential negative impact on UK businesses caused by U.S. political instability, global economic fears and the upcoming EU referendum on the British economy (BDO Business Trends Survey). A review can assess how fit a business is against these potential threats.

GENIC Business First, itself a business in Surrey, is launching a financial review business package specifically for small businesses in Surrey with 50% off their normal price. They conduct a thorough assessment of a business’ financial statements and deliver a detailed report with recommendations. If you would like to
