Summary of what is new on the Horley Views site

Village Tea Party – Saturday 4th September 2:30 – 4:30pm

Come along for a long-awaited village get together in the Old School, Horley, now Covid restrictions have been lifted!

Drop in anytime between 2.30pm and 4.30pm and stay as long as you like.

A complementary slice of home made cake and a cup of tea / glass of prosecco / soft drink will be on offer for all Horley residents whilst you chat to friends and neighbours. Everyone is welcome, especially those of you who’ve moved to Horley during lockdown and have missed out on Horley’s sociable side – we’d love to welcome you to the village with cake and a drink!

There will also be a children’s games corner (with prizes!) and a home made cake stall if you want to take one of the delicious Ladies Guild cakes home with you.

Looking forward to getting together again!

Census day – 21 March

The Census is coming on 21 March.  Information from the digital-first Census will help decide how services are planned and funded in our local area. Census outputs inform where millions of pounds of public funding is spent on services like transport, education and health, and on cycle routes, schools and dental surgeries.  Everyone will receive a letter with a unique access code in the post, allowing them to complete their questionnaire online.  Paper questionnaires will be available on request.

Recycling Centres Reopening from May 18th

All Oxfordshire Recycling centres to open on 18 May for essential use.

Oxfordshire County Council will re-open its 7 Household Waste Recycling Centres (including Alkerton) on 18 May, for essential use. Essential use means waste that cannot be stored at home, or would cause hard to health if stored.

There will be new site rules to ensure social distancing and the safety of residents and site staff. This includes reducing opening hours to 8am – 4pm to allow for cleaning, limiting the number and size of vehicles coming in and contactless payments only.

Queues are likely, so if it can wait, please do. If it’s waste that can be disposed of legally and responsibly in another way, such as weekly kerbside collections or district council collection services, please do that.

Full information about the changes to recycling centre rules can be found on their website – www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/wastereopenquestions
