Car parking on Wroxton Lane – South end of the village

A proposed plan to address the parking issues on Wroxton Lane at the south end of the village near the brook has been put forward by the Parish Council and is described in the recent copy of Horley Views.

The plans allow for an off-road parking area for eight vehicles, a new access point and an off-road path.

Before seeking full planning permission, the Parish Council is asking all residents of the village to review this project and show their support by sending a simple email or letter to the Parish Clerk, David Beck at horleypc@gmail.com.

Please see the Spring issue of Horley Views for more details.  If you don’t have a copy of Horley Views and would like to see details of the full proposal, please contact David Beck at horleypc@gmail.com.

 

 

Covid financial grants available from the MHT

The Michael Hardinge Trust exists to provide support to the educational needs of the young people of the village.  As we have now been living with the restrictions of Covid-19 for almost a year, the Trustees are concerned that the educational needs of some of our young people may have been affected by the pandemic.  Although we do not know how people may have been affected, the Trustees have now agreed to set aside some funds which can be provided as grants where lockdown measures may have had an adverse effect on educational progress.

If as a parent or young person you feel that education has suffered as a result of the pandemic, we are inviting you to apply for a special grant which may be of some help.  Funds are potentially available to anyone from the village who has not yet reached the age of 25 and who is in education or training.  This is in line with our policy on grants.  Funds may be limited, so apply as soon as you can.

You can apply in the usual way by letter to the Chairman of Trustees or via email to mhtinhorley@gmail.com.  Alternatively, if you would like to talk to someone confidentially to see how we may be able to help, please contact any one of the MHT Trustees. All applications will be treated in confidence.

If you want any other information about the work and aims of the Trust, further details are here

Give a laptop/tablet to support education at home

 

Last summer local BBC radio stations helped people donate old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England.  This made a huge difference to pupils that had to share equipment.

With schools closed again, BBC local radio is once more asking you to help those pupils still in need by sharing details of companies and charities who can help to get devices to pupils who need help.

Some charities can collect, wipe and share the laptops all in one; some can help take your devices off your hands to fix them ready for distribution; some are collecting donations to help fund devices for pupils.

How to donate a device

Please DO NOT take donations to BBC sites as they are unable to accept them.

If you have something you’d like to donate – and that could be a laptop; computer; mobile phone or tablet – please click on the link below to find out more about how to donate in our area.

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. 

For more information visit Census.gov.uk

 

 

Coronavirus in Horley

The Horley Coronavirus Support Group is aware that there have been a number of cases of the virus in the village, so please take care and stay at home where possible.

On a brighter note, several Horley residents have received their first vaccine jab.  Hopefully the rest of the village will follow before too long.

In the meantime, stay safe, and remember the support group is here if you need any help.  We can be contacted by email horleycsg@gmail.com or phone 01295 738334 .
