This Year’s Summer Fete Will Be a Virtual One

Horley’s Coronavirus Support Group Update

Easter Garden in Church Porch

Your Weekly Update

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter.   It will be a very different Easter this year without services in our Church or visits to Hadsham Farm to see the new lambs and of course not being able to meet up with friends and family from outside the village.

But on a more positive note, as far as we know, Horley continues to be virus free.

The Ladies Guild have made a donation to Christian Aid instead of making and sharing home-made soup on Good Friday, and an Easter garden has been set up in the Church porch – do go and take a look on your daily walk (whilst maintaining social distancing of course!)

Our group of fantastic volunteers are continuing to shop and collect prescriptions for others and technology is helping us to keep in touch with family and friends virtually, if not face to face. The glorious weather means we can spend time in our gardens (tending them or just enjoying them) and don’t forget that you can order plants from our local supplier Quarry Nurseries from April 26th.

Lambing is well underway at Hadsham Farm and there are lots of photos and videos on their Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/hadshamfarmbanbury/

If you need any help with shopping, prescription collection, dog walking or just a friendly chat on the phone, please contact us on the details below.

email: horleycsg@gmail.com, or call 01295 738334 or 07872 930030.

And as before, we would really appreciate it if you would let us know if you are aware of any potential cases of the virus in the village.

Keep washing your hands, and stay safe!
