Horley’s Coronavirus Support Group Update

Your Weekly Update

With the easing of lockdown restrictions this week we welcome the opening of garden centres albeit with appropriate social distancing measures, so now we can all really get on with work in our gardens!

This is being helped by Caroline’s plant stall which has the  raised over £500 now which is a fantastic effort. This money will be going towards the church fund and the local hospitals where our sewing bees have been making the scrubs and knitted hearts which have been so gratefully received.

As we will be unable to hold an ‘Open Gardens’ event this year, maybe people would like to send pictures of their gardens so we can appreciate the beauty of nature at our fingertips. These 2 pictures are of Horley’s Mr McGregor’s garden!

If you would like to share your garden – please send photos to horleyviews@outlook.com.

Upcyling for the NHS!

Diane Raper has made over over 80 scrub bags for local health centres and Tracey Parsons has completed another set 6 sets of scrubs – can anyone identify their bed linen in these pictures!

Masks – the government for England says:

  • People should aim to wear face coverings on public transport and in some shops
  • Also in other “enclosed spaces where social distancing is not always possible and they come into contact with others that they do not normally meet”
  • “Social distancing” means staying more than two metres away from someone
  • Face coverings should be worn and not surgical masks or respirators which should be left for healthcare staff and other workers who need them

You will have seen in a previous post that our industrious sewing bees, Tracey and Sue Ashdown, are still making masks for people in the village – if you would like one please please email Tracey Parsons giving your name and address.

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 alert!)  and, as ever, keep washing your hands!
