Reminder: Horley Village Coronation Celebrations

Not long now till the Coronation!

Horley bells will be ‘Ringing for the King’ on Saturday 6th May from 15:15 to 16:00 – listen out and/or come to the Church to watch.

Then on Sunday 7th May it’s the village Coronation Lunch at Hadsham Farm.

Lots of you have already booked tables and chairs to be sure you don’t need to bring them with you – and they can be decorated in advance if you are feeling creative! There are still a few left which can be booked by emailing: or by asking any of the Ladies Guild.

You are also welcome to just come along on the day – there are picnic tables outside or you could bring your own chairs to make sure you get a seat indoors if the weather doesn’t look too promising!

And don’t forget there will be a celebratory cake and fizz!

More details below:

If you would like to reserve a table for the Coronation Celebrations (you could go up in the morning and set up your own Coronation decorations), then please let Alison Tite, Helen Moss, Tracey Parsons or Sandra Easton know. Who will have the most regal table?

Coronation Celebrations – Sunday 7th May 1-4pm

Spend a few hours in good company in the lamb barn at Hadsham Farm to mark this historic event. The barn will be decorated and chairs and tables will be provided both indoors and outdoors, alongside the children’s play area.

Bring along a picnic and we will provide the toast – make it a day to remember before going home to watch the Coronation Concert. The Ladies Guild will also provide some delicious cakes for everyone (other volunteers’ cakes will be gratefully received)

The Poo Problem – Cricket Field

See below a further message from David Beck – Chairman Horley Cricket Club: 

You will have noted the article from the Parish Council on ‘The Poo Problem’. 

As the Cricket Club has similar problems, it can only support the Parish Council.

The Club has noticed increased instances of poo not being picked up, poo bags being left on the wall in front of the pavilion or hanging from the buildings or deposited in the Club’s waste bins or just left for the club to dispose of!.

Dog owners are reminded there is a Poo bin outside the main gate.

The Club currently does not have an issue with dogs being walked on the field – indeed many of its members enjoy doing that. However, the Club has a Health and Safety responsibility, particularly as the field is used by youngsters. Therefore, if the issue of the poo and its disposal continues, the club will have to consider a ban of dogs which it would do with great reluctance.

Thank you for your co-operation.
