There has been a marked drop in the number of bottles, cans and fast food cartons thrown from vehicles on the approach roads into the village. Thank you to the regular team of volunteer litter pickers around the village and to those who take their litter home particularly when it is already inside a vehicle. Many of our rural lanes are fast becoming a dumping ground for materials that harm the environment.
Horsley church will deliver art materials to children who live in the village on request. Please send an e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a bag of materials delivered to your doorstep during the current crisis.
Lead lane in Horsley will be closed for one day only on May 5th to allow utility work to commence. The work will actually start on May 4th and continue through to November 2020. However the road is only likely to be closed completely for one day.
Many thanks to the Hearth cafe who continue to provide doorstep grocery service and take out food around the village. Their efforts have been gratefully received during this difficult time.
Horsley church has made a planning application to improve access to the main building which will support all users of the path. Details about the application have been attached to the church railings.
Villagers are being encourage to decorate their windows and gardens with bunting for the VE Day celebrations on May 8th.
Swallows have returned to the village after their long flight from the Southern Hemisphere. Two birds have adopted the WI/village hall post box as a nest site. Anyone who has mail for this box please use the Hearth post box for the time being.
The large road sign beside the bridge on the road to Harlow Hill has finally been repaired. Let’s hope others around the village are repaired soon.
