Scout Camp Seeking Accommodation – August Bank Holiday

Can you provide B&B for Scouting Festival on August Bank Holiday?


I am writing out of the blue to ask for your help to pass on a request to fellow villagers in Horley, or to put this information on the village notice board, or if the timing works, to advertise in the Horley Views Magazine.

I am part of a team of volunteers that organises an annual family/community festival at the Horley Scout Campsite over the August Bank Holiday weekend.  We have around 300 people camping on the site.  BUT there are always a very small number of people who do not camp.  This can be for all kinds of reasons.  Until now they have not been able to participate as the hotel in Wroxton is prohibitively expensive especially as most of the time is spent at the campsite. We have found a couple of people letting rooms in Hornton  but that is just a little further away ideally we would like to find some accommodation within walking distance of the campsite.

We wondered if there would be residents in Horley who would be willing to let out a room over this bank holiday.  It would be great if that could include access to basic breakfast facilities (tea/coffee, cereal and toast for example) no elaborate or cooked breakfast would be expected. In Hornton we are being charged between £40-50 per room per night. But, if there are Horley residents interested in this we can negotiate everything to reach a mutual agreement.

If anyone is interested in this, they should contact me, Steve Miller by email or 07941 813 619.

Many thanks
