We usually allow charity collections in any of our towns and villages but the following restrictions apply
Along the Thames Path
To collect money on the Thames Path in Runnymede you will need:
- a street collections permit
- permission of the Environment Agency's Strategic Waterway Manager for the Thames region
- to liaise with Surrey Police
The River Thames at Runnymede runs alongside Runnymede Pleasure Grounds. If you want to collect money inside the Pleasure Grounds or in any of our other parks and open spaces which are owned by the Council you will also need the permission of our Green Space Team. (Not currently taking any applications until further notice)
Crown Estate land
If you want to collect money on Crown Estate land, such as The Green at Englefield Green or on the pathways around the lake at Virginia Water you will need a street collections permit and permission from The Crown Estate
Hamm Court, Weybridge
Hamm Court is a private estate in Runnymede between Chertsey Meads and Weybridge, on the River Thames, where door to door sales and house to house collections are not allowed.
The Wentworth Estate Roads Committee has advised that direct debit appeals and commercial clothing collections cannot take place in certain roads in Virginia Water.
