Delightful plants in the Great Park

Quote of the Day

Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind.

Contiki youth travel
Contiki is the world's largest travel company for 18-35 year olds! In 1961, a young New Zealander, John Anderson, arrived in London to tour Europe. He didn't want to go alone and he didn't have much money, so he put a deposit on a minibus and gathered a group of travellers who spent twelve weeks exploring Europe.

At the end of the trip, John tried to sell the minibus but no one wanted it. So when in Spring of 1962, he advertised his Europe tour again. This time, he was able to fit two trips into the Summer season and doubled his business. The first tours were for 19 - 29 year olds, so right from the start Contiki was about youth travel.

On top of plans for an energy waste plant and a development at Virginia Water train station, Developer Crest Nicholson wants to build the homes in Longcross and a business park on the former MOD site in Chobham Lane. Crest Nicholson had outline permission from RBC to develop the former MOD site near Virginia Water.  Local residents are concerned that Crest Nicholson aim to close Burma Road and the footpath linking Virginia Water to Longcross Station and Chobham Common.

There are 2,500 homes set to be built between now and 2026 at Longcross with 40% being built as affordable housing and a large number of flats also being developed. There are supporters to the former MOD site being commercially develop in terms of the jobs it will create. But there are concerns for the population with the possibility of around 5,000 people moving to the area, which could cause problems with roads, schools and shops.
