This lockdown week brought us VE Day commemorations across the UK. Although celebrations could not be as exuberant as we would have wished here in Horley, there were still signs of remembrance on a sunny Friday in the village. Judy Duck was fully kitted out in uniform, including a gas mask (not for Covid 19 this time!) and the Red Lion, (our new favourite takeaway facility!), was bedecked with Union Jacks and bunting.
Scrubs made with 💙
Another fantastic selection of scrubs made by Horley’s NHS sewing bee – Tracey Parsons. They include a very fetching pair of blue gingham bottoms made from a once much cherished sleeping sack which backpacked around Australia with it’s ex owner back in the day!
As well as scrubs there have also been knitted hearts and scrub bags all of which have been packaged up and sent to the Warwick hospital.
If you would like to join the NHS knit and stitch effort please contact Jane Huskisson (text or call 07984 685127) who will be able to give you all the details.
Plants For You
Caroline’s plant stall continues to flourish and will continue to do so for the next few weeks with contributions from neighbours and others in the village of perennials, tomato and courgette plants etc. So far Caroline has received £400, which has included donations from people who have received masks from our accomplished Horley sewing bees.
And finally… we still believe that no-one in the village is suffering from Covid 19. Please do let us know if your personal situation changes, and remember, our volunteers are here to help those in need and self isolating. Here are the contact details for the group:

Stay safe and, as ever, keep washing your hands!
