Runnymede ‘Homewood parkrun’ which will be relocating to Ottershaw Memorial Fields in January 2017. The parkrun is held every Saturday morning at 9am.

‘parkrun’ organise free weekly 5km timed runs around the world. Participants can run or walk and the 5km distance offers an achievable distance to those who are currently inactive. Because of this, alongside the social element and opportunity to participate for free, hundreds of new participants are registering for parkrun every weekend. The run is fully inclusive and appeals to individuals from all demographics; both men and women, young and old as well as those with disabilities.

Each local event is run by volunteers from the community, and Homewood parkrun has an established team of volunteers that lead the event. The run has attracted an average of 115 runners per from across the borough, as well as further afield. The course at Ottershaw Memorial Fields will involve starting and finishing on the field, with the route going through the woodland trail.

Further information about parkrun is available at, If you do have any questions or have volunteers who would be interested in helping with the event please do get in touch with:

Please find below updated information on the trunk mains replacement project being undertaken by Affinity Water on the A320.

The works currently being carried out represent Phase Two of the overall project. This phase being to lay and commission new pipework from Brox Road to Anthonys and expectation was that this section would be complete in the next week.

Complications have delayed this completion and Affinity Water have agreed to suspend works from this coming Sunday in the build up to the festive period. As a consequence, the closure of Brox Road and the temporary traffic signals on the A320 will be removed before Monday morning, the 5th of December.

The completion of this phase including the commissioning of the new pipework will now take place in the New Year.

Phase Three of the project between Brox Road and The Otter Roundabout remains under discussion albeit works will take place during 2017.
