We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Colin Sandford as our new local correspondent for the Borough of Guildford in Surrey.
Colin, who lives in Effingham, has a lifelong interest in horse-riding and this inspired his interest in countryside access. Colin will be our eyes and ears in this area, keeping a close watch on the state of all public paths and reporting any problems to Surrey County Council, the highway authority, and helping and advising with the protection of commons, greens and other open spaces.
Colin has retired after a career in retail commercial management. He is a member of the British Horse Society and the Surrey Horse Riders’ Working Party.
Before joining the Society, Colin campaigned for paths, including an ancient trackway, to be added to the official map of rights of way. He walks regularly and so he is ideally placed to represent the interests of both walkers and riders.
Says Colin: ‘I have ridden and walked in Surrey for many years and am keen to make some small contribution to keeping the countryside open and accessible to everyone who shares my enjoyment of it.’
Colin takes over Guildford from Bob Milton who remains the society’s local correspondent for Surrey Heath District.
