Lingfield is open for business

Spent a really good couple of hours down in Lingfield on Saturday morning as local businesses looked to attract customers back to the village after the nightmare roadworks came to an end last month. Given the potentially devastating effects of the recession, we need to be doing everything we can to revive the centre of the village as a place to come and shop. A big thank you is also due to the Lingfield Chamber of Commerce – brilliantly directed on this occasion by Martin Cundey and Paul Hearnden – for doing so much to make the day possible. With them looking out for Lingfield’s traders I’m sure that the village will be booming again in no time.
