The work will create a new customer services unit on the ground floor, where residents will be able to have many of their queries dealt with at the first point of contact.
While the work is being done, the reception area and some other council services will be based in temporary office space at the front of the building.
Ian Harrison, Head of Customer Services said “We will be providing a full service to all our residents while the building work is going on. However, residents may find it more convenient to do business with us in other ways. Payments can be made online, over the telephone or by post.
“We are also encouraging residents to make Council Tax payments by direct debit, as it is the most convenient and cost effective method of paying. The offices in Princes Gardens in Aldershot are open as normal. Many of our services are also available through our website www.rushmoor.gov.uk
“We hope that residents will bear with us during this period, as the end result will be a much improved customer service for them.”
The work is expected to finish in the spring.

Anyway, it was lovely having everyone come to the house, and remind me how old I am. I loved all the cards from my little people, and rude cards and surprise screen saver from my big people.
It has been lovely to hear from all those I love, and especially those I have missed and not heard from for a long time. I have a life full of wonderful memories, especially the last few years.
There is a political group meeting tonight, but I have another party to attend. I am sure they will understand!

This is about doing rather than just talking. The ‘sort-it’ campaign is not a political campaign. It’s about getting people to think about their own social responsibilities. We don’t believe that in opposition all you can do is talk about what you might do in Government. That’s why the Conservatives have championed the Young Adult Trust; that’s why Conservative candidates are creating their own local social action projects around the country - and that’s why we’ve launched the ‘sort-it’ campaign.
‘Sort-it’ is a website that will campaign on a wide range of issues. Its aim is to inspire people to take personal responsibility for making change happen, and it will provide tips and tools for people to do so - locally, nationally and sometimes internationally.
We really hope that this website will play a big part in helping people in this country tackle the serious problem of personal debt.
To see the site please go to http://www.sort-it.co.uk/

Key milestone reached in Farnborough town centre deal
A financial deal has been agreed between Rushmoor Borough Council and Key Property Investments Ltd (KPI - the joint venture between St. Modwen Properties PLC and Salhia Real Estate Company of Kuwait) that will pave the way for the long-awaited redevelopment of Farnborough town centre.
At a special meeting of the Council’s Cabinet on Monday (20), members were pleased to approve formally the deal, which has also been signed off by the independent District Valuer.
Approval of the deal removes another major obstacle from the £75 million redevelopment scheme and means that once both sides have completed the necessary legal agreements, work will be able to start on site.
Rushmoor Council’s leader, Councillor Peter Moyle, said: “I am very pleased we have been able to reach this important stage in the project and got the support of the District Valuer for it.
“I share residents’ frustrations over the delays in the redevelopment of the town centre because I want to see it built as much as they do. We will be doing everything in our power to support and enable the scheme to now go ahead and we will be pressing KPI for an early start date and to deliver the scheme in the shortest possible timescale.”
Chairman of St Modwen, Anthony Glossop said: “It has been a very long road to get to this point. However, it was vital that we not only delivered a scheme that was right for the future of Farnborough, but also struck a financial deal with the Council that gave the community the appropriate reward for the Council’s landholdings whilst giving us an adequate incentive to undertake the scheme. This was not an easy compromise to reach, but I am delighted that, with goodwill on both sides, it has been achieved. I look forward to starting on site as soon as possible in the New Year.
“The scheme is a complex one and needs to be carried out in phases so that access is maintained for the public, services and service vehicles at all times and certain local occupiers, such as the residents of Firgrove Court and a firm of solicitors, can be relocated within the scheme with full continuity of their lives and livelihoods. We are in the process of working up explanatory material to inform the public and particularly all occupiers affected by the proposals of the sequence of works and how and when they will impact on them. Our plan is to complete all the main phases by Summer 2009 but we are constantly looking at ways to shorten the construction programme.”
Beware if you receive a call on your mobile phone from the above number. The caller will not know your name or anything about you but they will trick you by saying they are calling about your O2/Orange/3/Vodafone/T-mobile contract. Most people assume because they know which network they are on that it’s a legitimate call, they will try and offer you an upgrade, but what they are really doing is signing you up for a new 12 month contract. They are using the prefix of your mobile number to guess your network, historically numbers from the same network have the same prefix i.e. 07736 = O2. The only time that they’ll get this wrong is if your have ported your number from one network to another. If you take the bait they’ll ask for you bank details and set up a direct debit, if you have been unfortunate enough to fall for this contact your bank and stop the direct debit. If you received the phone you are within your rights to cancel the contract within 14 days.

I very much welcome this work. It will protect the trees that make a valuable contribution to our local area, and also restrict over development at a time when greedy developers seem to want to build more and more houses in ever smaller plots, and would not think twice about clearing trees in order lay down more concrete.

* After hearing of a Primary School in Birmingham where a boy was told that for PE they could wear Football League shirts (Aston Villa, Birmingham, West Brom etc) but NOT an England shirt as it could offend others!
Published in a British tabloid newspaper.
IMMIGRANTS, NOT BRITON'S, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It.
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture.
Since the terrorist attacks on London, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Brits.
However, the dust from the attacks has barely settled and the "politically correct" crowd begin complaining about the possibility that our patriotism is offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Britain.
However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.
This idea of London being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.
As Britons, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.
This culture has been developed over centuries of wars, struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language.
Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, Learn the language!
"In God We Trust" is our National Motto.
This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan.
We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.
It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools.
If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, Because God is part of our culture.
If St. George's cross offends you, or you don't like " A Fair Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from.
This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great British freedom, "THE RIGHT TO LEAVE".
If you aren't happy here then leave!
We didn't force you to come here.
You asked to be here.
So accept the country YOU accepted.
Pretty easy really, when you think about it.

Oli my official Parks advisor
The first Park we have taken action on is Rectory Road Park. Here I have requested the rusty redundant light columns to be removed by the end of this month. I got the awful graffitti removed from the play equipment and had an assurance that if it re appears it will be removed immediately (I think graffitti attracts more graffitti) I have also asked for the mobile CCTV camera's to be placed there to catch any anti social behaviour. I am also having a broken bin replaced.

In this meeting we can have an open and frank discussion about any Council or political issue - all in total confidence. So it is an important meeting for Cabinet members and backbenchers like myself. Cabinet members can test ideas, and backbenchers can express concerns and opposition to a variety of issues.
So in this meeting I can and do raise issues that concern you, that I think the whole Group should hear rather than just a discussion with another councillor. So in this particular meeting I raised amongst other issues alternate week bin collection ... again!!
I am bound to keep confidence about Group discussions so I will not report what was said. Which is right. We need times when we can talk frankly and without the constraint of public scrutiny - and all the political Groups enjoy this.
Suffice to say, that the Council leaders are very aware of the strong feeling over this issue.

I personally think this is ill conceived, and am aghast we are going to experiment on 20% of our residents! In my opinion we could have phased in a much gentler yet effective plan to tackle this issue, keeping residents positive about the Council and working in partnership rather than this rather abrasive approach. I remain hopeful that some sensible approach will be found that is practical and of real environmental value.

I have found it: the philosopher's stone of politics, the elixir of life. There really is an answer to the West Lothian Question. Twenty nine years have passed since Tam Dalyell, the stony Old Etonian who then sat for West Lothian, set the conundrum before Parliament. Scottish devolution, he observed, would lead to a constitutional anomaly, as Westminster MPs with Scottish seats would be able to vote on matters affecting English constituencies, but would have no say over such matters in their own constituencies.
Today, the problem is no longer academic. On two occasions -- over foundation hospitals and again over tuition fees -- the votes of Scottish MPs secured the passage of contentious legislation that did not apply north of the border. And the signs are that the English are becoming miffed. An opinion poll in The Daily Telegraph showed that nearly half of English voters object to the idea of a Scottish Prime Minister -- a finding that would have been unthinkable a decade ago.
What, then, is the answer? The only two solutions so far hazarded - a separate English parliament or a wholly independent Scotland - have understandably failed to win widespread support. But there is a third option: localism.
There is no power exercised by the Holyrood legislature under the 1998 Scotland Act that could not, in England, be devolved to a lower level -- either to counties and cities or, better still, to individual citizens.
English councils could, for example reassume responsibility for the relief of poverty, which was considered a municipal function from the Middle Ages until the late 20th century. They could take up the powers of the now defunct Office of the Deputy Prime Minister. They could administer health and education (or at least the financing of these policies: there is no reason why they should directly run schools and hospitals).
All Westminster MPs would then find themselves on an equal footing. True, they would have lost some of their powers. But they would be able to compensate by taking back different powers from judges, quangoes and Eurocrats. The House of Commons would, in its functions at least, resemble the US Congress, concentrating on big, national issues such as defence, immigration and foreign treaties. I suspect that most MPs would regard this as an improvement on their current status as providers of a queue-jumping service for pushy people.
Could our local authorities cope with the increased responsibilities? Absolutely.
Kent has three times the population of Wyoming; yet Wyoming happily runs its own criminal justice, social security and taxation systems. Give councils more power and you will attract a higher calibre of candidate as well as boosting participation at local elections. In Britain, local authorities raise 25 per cent of their budgets and turnout is typically around 30 per cent. In France, those figures are, respectively, 50 and 55 per cent; in Switzerland 85 and 90 per cent.
English devolution is not simply a way to correct the lopsided devolution settlement; it is a meritorious reform in itself. Canvassers from all three parties will privately tell you that they are coming across an unprecedented degree of doorstep cynicism. "Voting doesn't make any difference," say the punters -- and they're right. The questions that impact most tangibly on local communities -- whether to build more houses, where to deploy the police, who goes to which school -- have been removed from the democratic process.
Decisions that would be made at a town meeting in the US are made, in England, by a single minister and then imposed uniformly on the whole country. As well as being unaccountable, the system is inefficient. "To the size of a state there is a limit, as there is to animals, plants and implements," wrote Aristotle, "for none of these can retain its facility if it is too large". The NHS payroll is the size of the population of an average African nation, and its budget considerably higher. No single minister, be he the wisest in Whitehall, can get the most out of such a monstrous organisation.
In Europe, as in North America, conservatives generally stand as the defenders of local particularisms against the bureaucrats in the national capital. There are signs that, after decades of misguided centralism, the Tories might do the same here. David Cameron has promised to place the police under locally elected representatives, to democratise the Crown Prerogative powers and to wind up the regional quangoes and pass their powers downwards. If he follows through, he may find that he has solved the West Lothian Question almost without meaning to.
It would, of course, be open to the Scottish and Welsh electorates to embark on a parallel localist agenda, devolving power to Aberdeenshire, Flintshire and the rest. Either way, the asymmetry of the current dispensation would have been corrected. The English would no longer have anything to complain about. We could all go back to resenting Gordon Brown, not because he sits for a Fifeshire seat, but because he is a miserable girner who has plundered our pensions and given away our gold reserves.
Righting the current constitutional imbalance will be like tapping a pebble out of our shoe. With the irritant removed, we can go back to celebrating the things that we have achieved together: ending the slave trade, bringing law and civilisation to new continents, fighting for the freedom of all Europe's nations.
There will still be occasional squabbles, of course. The relationship between England and Scotland, like that between Johnson and Boswell, has always involved a certain amount of teasing along with the underlying affection. It is a relationship typefied by the Highlander who, observing the rout at Dunkirk, commented tersely: "If the English give in too, this could be a long war".
But, in the last analysis, there is more that unites us than that divides us. For all our quarrels, we share a way of looking at the world. The underlying argument for the Union has not changed in 400 years. It was ably and eloquently advanced by that aboriginal Unionist, James VI and I: "Hath not God first united these kingdoms, both in language and religion and similitude of manners? Hath He not made us all in one island, compassed by one sea?" Amen.

Village of the martyrs ... preserved as it was the day the soldiers left 10th June 1944
Over 640 villagers - men, women and children slaughtered, then the homes torched and bodies dumped into a mass grave. But the broken walls and empty streets live on and remember so we can not forget. Following the emotional seperation of the men from their women and children, the men were shot in the village square, and the women and children butchered in of all places the holy sanctuary of the church. Sealing the eternal damnation of the wicked souls responsible.
Cars left in the Garage courtyard where they were burt 10 June 1944
It was a privilaged to visit this village, and I felt the blood of the innocent shed here made every patch of ground I stepped on sacred. It was quiet, no-one spoke loudly, all instinctively whispered. My heart was heavy as I contemplated the complete and utter waste of life, and how fragile but how very precious life is.

There are 2 relevant planning conditions of the original planning consent (00/00796/OUT) with regards to deliveries and noise on the site.
1. Condition 23 (Deliveries) states that: "No deliveries shall be taken at or be despatched from the retail unit outside the hours of 0700 and 2200 hours Mondays to Saturdays or 0800 to 1800 hours on Sundays."
This condition does not make any specific mention of the front or rear of the site and therefore it must be assumed that no deliveries whatsoever should be taken or dispatched outside these hours.
B&Q have committed to: Ensure that deliveries arrive in the specified times. It seems to be a problem with certain lesser used contractors who are not aware of the condition. These will be made aware of the condition.
2. Condition 24 (Noise) states that: "Outside of the hours 0700-2230 Mondays to Saturdays and 0800-1830 on Sundays, no activity shall take place within the site of the retail unit that would result in noise being audible at the boundaries with the adjoining residential properties."
This condition does not prevent work continuing on site beyond 2230, but specifically relates to noise being audible outside these times.
B&Q admit that they were in breach of this condition and promised to make every effort to overcome the problems.
B&Q have committed to: Carry out the noisier activities within the hours stipulated in the condition. They intend to resurface the service area (currently concrete) with a quieter tarmac. The nature of the store is such that works have to carry on over night (which is allowed by the condition) but the night manager was at the meeting and is aware of his responsibility with regards noise.
Environmental Heath have looked into complaints about noise and are happy that the noise problem has ceased -we will continue to monitor it from a planning point of view.
I will continue to keep a close eye on the site to ensure that they are complying with their conditions. Obviously, to some extent, I will have to rely on information from the local residents to inform me of any breach. If we continue to receive evidence that they are in breach of these conditions, further action will follow.
The following numbers are for the night manager and can be called at any time during the night if an immediate fix is needed to a noise problem. 01252 379601 or 379602.

I am still overwhelmed at the miracle of life. Here is another soul coming into the world. Her name is Megan. She is loved very much already. We do not know her, her personality, her habits and ways, but we have nothing but love for her. She is part of us. Our blood runs in her veins. Our genes make up her body. She will have faults, but most of them are inherited or will be learned from us. We want the very best for her. She is a new generation for our family and all that we have will be shared with her. She is our hope for the future and the culmination of numberless generations from the past.

Although we got to talk about some of the important issues affecting Farnborough, there was plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening.Hey!! Who burnt to sausages??? ... Thanks Terry for the help on the BBQ
And it was great to see Philip one of our political opponents. We may disagree politically, but we both want to see the best for the Borough, and Philip has put in more hours than many when it comes to campaigning over local issues. Thanks for coming Philip, I promise I will not tell a soul!

Out in our town center looking for bulldozers: did not see any today - will keep looking!
Dear Mr Andrew Lloyd
I note that the Cinema application promised for mid May is still not here. KPI did not complete an updated Leisure Impact Assessment, which they are now working on. So the application should be in mid June. Two questions, why could this not have been submitted subsequent to the application, and as this is an application involving the Council why was this not picked up earlier when we announced an application was coming in mid May?
I also note that the judicial review period for the Town Centre has passed a week last Friday, there was no challenge - so where are the bulldozers? Having spoken to Simon Rutter at KPI I understand they are still "in discussion" with the Council over land ownership. Why did we not resolve the land issue during the Judicial Review period?
May I suggest that the meeting with you, the Leader and KPI be more frequent at times like this? I understand the last meeting according to Simon Rutter was March and the next according to Mr Rutter is due mid July.
The next meeting to discuss land ownership is 16th June with Richard Stafford. But I suspect this will not conclude anything, without your involvement. This election brought home to me the frustration that many residents have over the town centre. What more can be done to expedite this important local issue. I am afraid I do not feel, in consideration of the above that we are doing enough.
Empress Ward Councillor.
