Though small, Horley has a thriving and busy community that “punches well above its weight” in the number of groups and activities that go on in our little corner of North Oxfordshire.
This page has been created to provide a menu for all these groups. Some are listed below and there is more to come from such as the Cinema Club, Play Group, All Generations Coffee morning, Yoga, Bell Ringers, Red Lion, St. Etheldredra Church and The Old School.
Cricket Club – a wonderful resource for the village, whether you play or not. There are exciting plans for a new pavilion, and lots of functions take place such as the Summer Sports Evening and Autumn Ball. See the link for latest news of the ClubMark status award.
Parochial Church Council – ensures the running of our amazing Church which is used for fairs, concerts, barn dances as well as religious purposes. The latest project has seen the installation of the new bells and the training of the bell ringers. For details of church services see Church Services.
Horley Footlights – started in 2002 with “Mother Goose Rocks”, and since then has had 12 full-scale productions and many smaller events. A reduced Mid Summers Night Dream is being staged in the church this summer.
The Ladies Guild – plans and organizes various fund-raising events in the village in support of the Church and other charities and takes care of the church interior. Events include the Summer Fete, Christmas Market, Coffee Mornings.
Parish Council – consists of 7 Councillors who meets 5 times a year and whose role is to serve the interests of the village. Their priority is to safeguard Horley and ensure it continues to be the attractive village and healthy, safe community which is appreciated by all its residents.
