Your Weekly Update
This week is from Glenys Kyle, Group Coordinator:
‘We all had confirmation on Tuesday that lockdown will continue for at least another three weeks. Here in Horley we appear to be coping well. Our bins are still being emptied and our verges cut. Our resourceful volunteers are happy to do shopping, prescription collection and to lend a hand (and an ear) to those in need. Charles Cozens and his household are keeping the churchyard in exceptionally good order, and with time on our hands, many of our gardens are getting more attention than usual. Then to take the sting out of things, Dave and Tash at the Red Lion are continuing to keep us supplied in fine ale and the like.
As far as we know, no-one in the village is suffering from Covid 19. A small handful of people have been self-isolating in recent weeks, as they have found themselves displaying one or more of the symptoms, but we know of no confirmed case. Please do let us know if your personal situation changes, so that we can keep abreast of things. And remember, our volunteers are here to help those in need. To remind you, here are the contact details for the group:
email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01295 738334 or 07872 930030.
It has been lovely to hear the village showing its appreciation for key workers, on Thursday evenings at eight. The usual applause is now being supplemented with bells and whistles, and that means we can more easily hear each other’s appreciation even if we can’t see everyone. Let’s keep it up over the weeks ahead.’
