The Leader thanked everybody that helped organise and attend the events of the past 10 days as we mourned the passing of H M Queen Elizabeth II and mark the accession of King Charles III, with particular thanks to the Mayor, Kate Foxton, and the Civic team.


The Leader reminded councillors that the Household Support Fund was still open for applications until 30 September 2022.  Residents could submit one application per household and a maximum grant of up to £300 pounds per household was available.  Priority would be given to those with high needs such as households with children and pensioners.  More information and how to apply could be found on the Council’s website.


The Leader also reminded councillors that the deadline for applications to the next round of crowdfunding under Crowdfund Guildford was 28 September 2022.  Most recently, this source of funding had been used to fund repairs to the war memorial in Merrow which hopefully should be completed in time for Remembrance Sunday.


The Leader noted that the Council would be promoting its second Car Free Day on Sunday 25 September from 10am to 4.30pm


Finally, the Leader commented that the Guildford Design Award exhibition scheduled to take place at the Guildhall had to be cancelled following the death of H M Queen Elizabeth II.  The travelling exhibition of awards was now moving around the borough’s villages on various dates in September and October.
