IMPORTANT

The Covid Vaccination Centre is NOT at Horsley Village Hall.

It is being run from
HORSLEY WOODHOUSE CHURCH HALL
Main Street
Horsley Woodhouse
DE7 6AT

The address shown on the NHS Booking Form of Horsley Woodhouse Church Hall, Ilkeston DE7 6AT is misleading.

Please see the 'What's on?' section of this site for the event diary and more details.

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the Village Fete and Garage Sale in September 2020. We had a great afternoon with a good variety of stalls and it was lovely to see so many neighbours and friends. It felt quite normal in these strange Covid times. A brilliant £466 was raised for the Village Hall from our stalls, raffle and refreshments. So good to see people enjoying the hall and the rec.

Now under way - Sunday nights 6pm - 8.30pm

Newcomers welcome and help available. Please spread the word - we would love to see some faces from the Village there as well as from the Bowls Club!

Local Area Coordination is a way of supporting people with disabilities, mental ill health, older people and their families and carers. It aims to help them to live fulfilling lives, stay safe and be well connected with their local communities.

Local Area Coordinators can help you access and use services, get information and other support you need in your local area. They can also work with you if you are at risk of becoming dependent on services or in danger of reaching a crisis situation.

Local Area Coordinators can help you to build connections with other people, groups and community based services in your area, helping you become more independent and engaged in your local community.
