The death of village resident Terry Mulligan from Cherrytree Gardens marks the passing of a highly regarded community member. Terry was founder of the village gardening club. He provided seeds and plants for many local projects as well as developing an allotment behind the Crown and Anchor to which all came for gardening advice or simply a chat. As a master baker he made bread sheaths of corn and hedgehogs for harvest festival in the village church. Terry also supported many initiatives in the village hall.
The Hearth cafe are promoting a pumpkin trail for families around the village and Horsley wood cottages. Kevin at the cafe will provide plastic trays for those taking part in order for you to safely put your Halloween treats and pumpkins. These will be placed at your doorstep to ensure social distancing. A map showing the location of the baskets will be provided for anyone taking part. The map can be sent by e mail or collected with your basket from the cafe.
Please contact the Hearth cafe by October 30th if you wish to join in the fun.
The Lion and Lamb and the Hearth cafe are still able to trade under the recent Covid 19 restrictions. The cafe is open every weekday from 9.30am and weekends from 10am. The Lion and Lamb is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Although it was not possible to hold an indoor service for Harvest Festival this year, Horsley village church is still making a donation of canned foods to the local Food Bank. Items can be placed in the blue container next to the church noticeboard. Thank you for any donation. Tinned food only please.
The antiques centre in the village which has featured on television antiques roadshows is open every day except Sunday from 10am until 5 pm.
