Andrew Matthews

District Councillor for Bookham East & Eastwick Park

I have lived in the Bookham and Fetcham area for over 35 years, and live in Bookham with my wife and family.

I work as a Railway Signalling Engineer, and I am regularly part of a team upgrading the railway infrastructure, I am currently involved with projects at Victoria and at Feltham.

I enjoy spending some of my spare time volunteering in the community.

I volunteer at South Bookham SPACE where I am a trustee and the facilities officer, I also work with the Residents' Association on projects to improve our villages.

I enjoy taking part in the monthly litter picks.

I have been running a campaign for better accessibility at Bookham Station, and have won the support of Surrey County Council for an accessible bridge with lifts, I have secured funding for the refurbishment of the Station toilets with the provision of an accessible cubicle, and also for new display screens on the platforms. I look forward to seeing more of the improvements later this year.

As a Councillor, I have been representong the community, and standing up for families caring for relatives. I challenge the council to improve facilities and services, and have a strong interest in ensuring that Bookham and the beautiful countryside is protected from over development.

I care about our village High Street, and want to provide solutions that will keep the shops open. I would also like to explore ways to increase the kerbside recycling of more plastics and Tetra Pak Cartons.
