Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Inevitably many of the regular activities and planned events which take place in the Village Hall are now being cancelled. Please check the 'What's On?' section of the website as this is changing on a daily basis. All providers of regular activities have been contacted and as decisions are made we will update the calendar.

These planned events are now cancelled :

Fashion Show which would have been held on March 30th

VE Day Events which would have been held in the Village Hall on May 8th

Horsley 4 Mile Race and Fun Run which would have been held on May 17th

We are looking to schedule the Horsley 4 Mile Race and Fun Run later in the year - watch this space!

News

Thanks to the invaluable help of our President, John Kirkland, the acoustics problems in the Hall have been rectified and speech and music can now be heard properly. The other major problem has been getting the heat to function properly, the problem was found and new parts have resolved the issue. With the garden shrubs and hedges planted, and the seat provided by the Parish Council in place, the Hall can now be said to be 'complete'!

A 'wish list' for equipment requires additional funding and community events will continue. Our last fundraising event of 2019 was the Christmas Draw which raised a magnificent £668. That takes our fundraising to £9500 this year. Another incredible effort.

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

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.
