About

The Camberley Eye is an on-line equivalent of a traditional local civic society.  It has the same aims;  to raise interest in everything that’s happening in the town and to campaign for improvements.  It’s an opportunity for everyone who cares about Camberley to air their views and – if needed – to try to get something done!

The ‘Eye’ focus is maintained by David Chesneau.

    • I couldn’t possibly comment on the ‘thick or what’!! But you can’t post DIRECTLY. What you can do, though, is click on ‘Contribute to this blog’, and attach photos to the blank e-mail that appears. On a PC, you’ll find ‘Contribute to this blog’ on the right-hand side of the screen/’home page’. On a mobile device you’ll probably have to scroll down to find it. I’m not in control of this aspect, I’m afraid.
      I’ll then add the photos as an additional post. (As this is a blog rather than eg a Facebook page, it’s not so easy for others to add to it. This has advantages as well as disadvantages.)

  1. Please could i arrange for a meeting to tell you about our new concept and offers to the general public Tel 07702128902 Best regards Graham

  2. I live in Tenerife but used to live on the London Road (one of the American looking houses opposite Diamond Ridge). I have only just found your blog and have added the RSS to my newsreader as I am thoroughly enjoying each and every post you make. They bring back happy memories as well as surprise, some things have changed, some not, but keep up the good work. Your words travel far 🙂

    • Many thanks for your comments and support! I feel that I should explain what the purpose of the ‘Eye’ is. It’s not simply intended to record matters, big and small, within the town centre, but to exert pressure for improvements. Inevitably this means being somewhat negative about the status quo, which is unfortunate and not a stance that I particularly like. But for the record, Camberley is a small town, it can’t compete ‘head on’ with larger neighbours, and the challenge is the council, retailers and residents to adopt AND implement a strategy that keeps the town special and a delight to live in and to visit. We’re a long way from that at the moment, and sitting back and saying nothing isn’t going to achieve anything.

  3. Hi,

    I am contacting you from Wates Construction and I have seen that you recently wrote about our new site which will eventually be a luxury care home in the centre of Camberley. I would like to ask if you would be interested in coming to the site for a visit one day in the near future? We would be interested in chatting to you about our new project.

    Many thanks,

    David

    • David, I did reply to you using what I think is your work e-mail address. If you didn’t receive my message, can you let me know and I’ll do something about it. Thanks. David Chesneau

    • Thanks for the alert, Steve. I’d been told a while ago that the whole Alcatraz chain had been sold – the restaurant did have a sign outside saying something like ‘Under new management’, but the item you’ve pointed out does seem specific to Camberley. It MAY be old news – property adverts often linger on the internet long after their sell by date. But it’s something to follow up, anyway.

  4. You have missed the great bin mystery. Yesterday morning. At the Knoll Road end of Knoll Walk. One of the rubbish bins vanished! Yes vanished! There are some marks on the pavement going in the direction of where in went, they stop just on the corner outside Higher Ground carpet shop. So where did the bin go next????
