    Figures released by the Department for Health shows the Conservative Government is planning a further £1,837,022 cut to the public health budget in Surrey. The budget pays to help improve people's health - and stop them getting ill in the first place - so there is less pressure on the NHS.

    Work undertaken by public health budgets include encouraging people to exercise more, give up smoking, drink less, come off drugs and drink and avoid sexually transmitted diseases.

    Woking Liberal Democrats are celebrating the election of James Sanderson as the new councillor for Goldsworth East - but campaigners were left disappointed as the Goldsworth West seat was lost by just 18 votes



    Goldsworth Park has always been a closely fought contest between the Liberal Democrats and the Conservative Party and Thursday October 8th proved no different. The by-elections were prompted by the resignations of Lib Dem stalwarts Denzil and Amanda Coulson who have started a new life for their family overseas.

    The closely fought campaign involved tens of thousands of leaflets, hundreds of doors knocked and many, many telephone calls from all parties. Turnout was therefore disappointing at just 28.58% in Goldsworth East and even less, at just 24.98% in Goldsworth West.
