The next Horsley parish council meeting is scheduled for Monday January 18th at 7pm. You are invited to join the meeting using the internet.

Hearth artists and the cafe would like to thank all their customers for purchasing art work, cards and take out food and drink during the current restrictions. The cafe is open daily until Christmas and all artists can be contacted using their websites. Click and collect service is available and in some cases artwork can be posted. Supporting local businesses at this time is greatly appreciated.

The wires which monitor traffic speed have been removed from the main road in the village. Many residents thought they were in the wrong place and should have been positioned towards the west end of the village where speeding is more noticeable.

Horsley parish council send a representative to the burial committee who oversee Ovingham cemetery. As there is no cemetery in Horsley many former residents are buried here. The committee have placed a new notice at the cemetery entrance to inform people that the cemetery contains war commission graves. A new maintenance fee will be applied to any future burials in order to provide funds to keep the cemetery in good condition.

A charity calendar for 2021 has been produced by the Hearth artists. The calendar depicts the seasons. Copies can be purchased online through the Hearth website on www.thehearth.co.uk and there is no charge for postage.

Access to the site of Long Lonkin,s hall in Horsley parish is not permitted as it is situated in a conservation area. There is almost nothing left of the tower with most of the last of the stones being used to build the A69 bridge over Whittle dene.
