Open Evening at Cherkley Court

The Directors of Longshot Cherkley Court hosted an Open Evening at Cherkley Court this week where they and others working on the project answered questions and allayed fears on a number of subjects.

“The Open Evening was a wonderful opportunity to engage with our neighbours in the local community and we were overwhelmed by their numbers and their support. We found this especially encouraging as we had invited both supporters and detractors.  We look forward to organising another event soon as part of our on-going wish to play an active and positive role within the local community,” said Joel Cadbury, Director Longshot Cherkley Court

“We were surprised to hear that so few people realised that all but the Golf Course will be open for everyone to use but delighted when people said that they couldn’t wait to come back and enjoy the facilities once we open. We were amazed to hear that we were supposed to be planning to build a block of flats in the place of the Golf Course!  We hope the evening allowed us to allay fears and dispel some rather extraordinary misconceptions once and for all,” said Ian Todd, Director Longshot Cherkley Court

“Last night many guests expressed frustration at the amount of time and energy that has been wasted on the legal process, but there was a real sense of relief to know that at least the local residents won’t have to foot the bill now that the legal costs have been awarded in favour of Mole Valley District Council. A number of residents are obviously keen for us to progress with our works as soon as possible, particularly so that we cover up the exposed chalk and progress with our commitments in relation to the environment. We look forward to doing so,” said Ollie Vigors, Director Longshot Cherkley Court
