    This piece of very good news has been overshadowed by what has been happening at Guildford Borough Council.

    We must congratulate Safeguard and Andrew Halliday on being shortlisted. They give an excellent service to local people and I know how much they are appreciated by people in Park Barn and Westborough. Well done.
