Report suspicious activity and behaviour to tackle terrorism

With many residents and businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s understandable the risk of terrorism hasn’t been at the front of our minds recently.

Following the recent attacks in Vienna and France, the UK’s terrorism threat level has changed from substantial to severe. This change was not based on a specific threat to the UK, but is a reminder for us all to remain alert, vigilant and report suspicious activity to police.

Councillor John Orrick

We are very sad to announce the death of Councillor John Orrick, who represented the Queens Park Ward.

John was a well known councillor who had represented Queens Park Ward since 2018, as well as twice before (1997-2000) and (2004-2008). He was first elected to the district council in 1997. He served on various council committees and made valuable contributions to many local organisations including the Caterham Community Association, East Surrey Dial-a-Ride and the Westway Centre (formerly the Douglas Brunton Centre).
