Horley Coronavirus Support Group is still here!

The Horley Coronavirus Support Group was set up in March 2020 to provide help with shopping,  prescription collection, dog walking and friendly phone calls to anyone in the village who needed it.  We know that many of you now have your own support networks in place, but as we have recently moved into Tier 4 and cases are rising in our area, if you do need any help, please get in touch as our volunteers are still available.  Email horleycsg@gmail.com or call 01295 738334 to contact us.

We’d also love to hear about anyone in the village who has had the vaccine – please let us know if and when you have and tell us how it went.  We are hoping that once enough people have been vaccinated, the village activities that had to be put on hold in 2020 will be able to resume.

In the meantime, whilst we are spending more time at home, the Ladies Guild have a selection of jigsaws available for loan.  Please email horleyladiesguild@gmail.com for more details.

 

 

 

 

Horley Santa (and his animal helpers) Light Parade

‘We’re really hoping to spread some Christmas cheer this year, and so have put some work into training our two shire horses to double up as Santa’s reindeer!  On the evening of Saturday 12th December, our two ‘reindeers’ will be travelling around Horley, with our very own Santa Claus to spread some festive cheer. ‘
