You may already know that the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association has a centre in Chilworth. Staff there are once again looking for local volunteer boarders willing to care for and provide temporary homes for trainee guide dogs.
Things are different this time from previous appeals. For a roughly six-month period, a dog would be collected from your home on weekday mornings, and delivered back to your home the same evening. The dog would stay with the volunteer evenings and weekends. All training, support, food & equipment is provided. Continue reading
This website started back in 2012, when Cllr Finlay suggested that the village would benefit from an online ‘parish pump’. One thing that’s always been missing is a digital equivalent of the three or four glass-fronted notice boards around the village. Until today!

Chilworth residents may be interested to know about some motorway closures that will take place soon to facilitate resurfacing and ‘smartening’ of the M27. As you’ll see from the letter here, diversions will push traffic onto the A27 through Chilworth. The poor standard of English grammar employed leaves the message open to interpretation. The first two closures are clearly overnight lane closures only. It’s not entirely clear that the subsequent four week complete closure eastbound and four week complete closure westbound are also overnight only.
