A Celebration of Effingham Common, 2011


This event on Effingham Common took place on Sunday September 25th 2011 and was jointly organised by The Friends of Effingham Common (Brian Hendry, Chairman), Guildford Borough Council (Adam Owen, Trees and Countryside Manager) and Effingham Parish Council (Sue Morris, Clerk). Its fundamental purpose was, as in many earlier years, to exercise in public view the various Commoners' rights, besides encouraging wider public interest in the Common's history and ecology.

Photographs and narratives of the event will appear on this page presently.
