Blue-Green Algae Returns To Frensham Big Pond

Visitors to Frensham Great Pond and Common are being warned not to enter the water at the big pond due to high levels of blue-green algae. Waverley Borough Council was notified about the high levels of blue-green algae by the Environment Agency, late this afternoon (Friday 30 June). Signage instructing visitors to avoid contact with the algae and warning people not to enter the water will be up on site until further notice.

Blue-green algae are a natural component of a freshwater ecosystem, but their presence is potentially harmful to humans, animals, birds and fish. Periods of warm weather followed by heavy rain and then further warm, still conditions cause blue-green algae to appear suddenly. There is no way of removing the algae from the water once it is established. Although not all species of blue-green algae are harmful, Waverley Borough Council recommends that people avoid the algal bloom as it can cause ill health such as dermatitis, eye irritation, rashes, blistering, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and nausea through skin, eye contact or if swallowed. Should anyone believe that they have been affected by blue-green algae, they should seek medical advice or in the case of their pets, veterinary advice. Waverley is monitoring the situation closely and will keep the public informed through its website and social media channels.

Frensham Village Breakfast

Please come and join us! – – 8.15am

The village breakfast, or more commonly known as ‘The Great Frensham Toast Off’ is held in St Mary’s church hall on Saturday mornings four or five times a year. It runs from 8.15 – 9.30 am.

It’s an informal friendly gathering for local people of all ages to socialise with residents old and new and catch up with local issues over tea and toast.
Set up and run by Frensham parish councillor, Fiona Scimone with super duper help from co-pilots Richard and their son, Louie. Richard kindly supplies us with delicious sourdough breads and jams from his bakery.

Our most recent breakfast on the 20th May was very well attended with a lovely range of ages.

We have another coming up soon – Please come and join us!.


Art workshop to launch our St. Mary’s Red Phone Box Gallery

Frensham Summer Fayre, June 17th 2017

We’d like you all to be part of the very first St. Mary’s exhibition!

Come along to the F.P.C marquee and draw, collage, or write into a postcard-sized outline of a mobile phone which we will have ready for you to work on. Your work will then be exhibited in our classic 1935 ‘K6’ Sir Gilbert Scott phone box.

The theme : Your favourite things about Frensham!

It’s up to you how you interpret this as long as it fits on our postcard format. You may have memories of queuing outside the box [yes, young people we shared these three phones between us all!, ] your stories of local people, drawings inspired by/ of the local landscape, poetry, etc.

You could use contemporary photos from your mobile as a source to work from or bring along a copy of that old photo of mods and rockers gathering on the green….

Bring along any materials you may like to use- we’ll have some basic drawing pencils/pens/glue/scraps for collage.

Artists Angela Shaw, Morwenna Lake and Fiona Scimone will be on hand to guide and advise.

About our new Frensham gallery….

We will soon be hosting several shows a year in our little red cube.

It will be a community led art space and we are delighted to have several artists already putting forward proposals for future projects. Angela, Morwenna, Fiona and Graham make up the curatorial team.

Please get in touch with Fiona Scimone at Frensham Parish Council if you would like to get involved.
