It's that time of year when the evenings get dark too quickly, and the clocks haven't even gone back yet!
For the Residents' Association we've been busy preparing the next edition of the Chorleywood Newsletter which should be hitting your doormats around the end of the month.

Transport
We've been closely involved with the setting up on an online campaign to improve the off-peak Metropolitan Line service. But now we need your help to write a letter (you can do it online) to our MP and London TravelWatch.

Our County Councillor Chris Hayward is consulting with us on any Highway improvements needed locally. Tell us what matters to you.

Alerts
If you drive a commercial vehicle are you aware of the scheme set up by Herts Police to help you protect your Cat (catalytic converter)

Education
The Reach Free School has already had the first of its two open evenings, the next one is this coming Tuesday at Watermeet.

Health
A bit confused as to where you should go when you're not feeling well. We've got some of the answers for you.

A new free phone number to enable you to contact the NHS for prompt (but not life-threatening) medical attention.

Planning
Chorleywood Premier on Lower Road has closed for two months after loosing its alcohol licence

A round up of planning applications received this week

Environment
The Parish Council has published it's program of works for the conservation of the common for the next 12 months. 

Did you know we had a National League Volleyball team based in Chorleywood. Neither did we! And the bonus is that you can attend all the home matches for free (if you cheer for Chorleywood Danes)

Play Area
We've learned that the the District Council has received a considerable amount of feedback on the Play Area, so much so that they've postponed the Chorleywood Local Area Forum until the start of December when they will be presenting their thoughts to the community.

What's On
