Human beings are capable of such resilience in times of crisis. It is so reassuring and heart warming to see how people in Horsley have come together to support one another at this difficult time. Church leaders, a community volunteer what’s app group and the Hearth cafe have been working hard to support everyone in need of help. Information leaflets have been sent to all householders in the village, Horsley Barns and Horsley Wood Cottages outlining the support available.
There was rousing support in the village for the NHS on Thursday night at 8pm. Many people opened their doors to congratulate the medical profession for the dedication and hard work they are providing in the fight to beat this current medical emergency.
Nancy Youngman, a long time resident of Horsley has sadly passed away after being ill over recent months. She was a regular member of the village church, WI and organised many social activities at the Crown and Anchor and village hall.
There are many signs of spring in the countryside around the village. It is amazing how the flora and fauna can raise your spirits when times are difficult. Lapwings and skylarks have returned to the fields to the north of the village. The woods are full of colour. Birds have started their dawn chorus and already building nests.
Village notes are sent several days before publishing. The current medical emergency and government advice changes daily. Please check Horsley Parish Council and Hearth cafe websites for up to date information or you may wish to connect to our local volunteer what’s app group.
