If the pandemic has shown us anything, it is the importance of community. Our dedicated Community Events and Wellbeing Task Group organises many, varied community events each year, and we are excited to share our 2022 programme with you. Our new Youth Council is also busy planning some exciting activities for our younger residents and we look forward to sharing news of these events with you soon.

West Horsley in Bloom continues to go from strength to strength, and we have been delighted to see many younger residents getting involved. There are two 'big' events to look forward to this Summer - The Horsley Platinum Jubilee Party on 5th June at Horsley Towers, and our West Horsley has Tea & Talent Village Fete at West Horsley Place on 10th September. Please put both dates in your diaries!

If you are holding a community event and you would like us to add details to our website, please drop us a line at [email protected] And don't forget you can aways put your A5 flyers up on our many village noticeboards.

We hope to see you at one of our many 2022 events.

 

Some of our special events require online booking.  Our booking system will be available shortly.
