About Horsell Residents' Association

Horsell Residents' Association was formed in 1965 as a non-political group open to all adult residents of Horsell. It exists as "the independent voice of Horsell" to:

1. promote, uphold and protect the interests of residents in matters that affect Horsell and its environs.
2. bring those matters to the notice of relevant bodies and accordingly keep its members informed.
3. support and promote social and benevolent activities for the general benefit of Horsell residents

Horsell Residents' Association upholds these aims activities including: publishing the quarterly magazine - The Resident - delivered by volunteers to all households; organising a Horsell Village Show and also through support of Horsell' community action team the Second Thursday Club.

Calling all Horsell gardeners! - Horsell Garden Safari - 17 & 18 June 2017

Horsell Garden Safari needs your garden. Small or large, are you prepared to help Horsell Village Hall as all funds raised from this event will go towards the refurbishment fund. Last year the money went towards replacing two of the windows in the lower hall, plus new curtains and redecorating. This year more windows need to be replaced. Please ignore the horrid wet weather we have had recently; summer will come and with it hopefully some sunshine and the gardens will look lovely again.

If you would kindly open your garden, then please contact Penny at colinandpenny@sky.com or Gail at bromleysglad@talktalk.net, we can then let you know what is involved.

The schedules will cost £7 and let visitors into the gardens for both days. Gardens are open on Saturday or Sunday both days.

Please can you let us know as soon as possible so we can start making our list.

Kind Regards,

Penny and Gail

Petition about pedestrian safety in Horsell

Spotted in Horsell: a notice about a petition to make the crossing safer at Victoria Way, just near the Bedser Bridge.

This is the pedestrian crossing where lots of people walk between Woking town centre and Horsell. The proposal is to have a countdown for pedestrians, so they know how much time there is left to cross.

You can find the petition here - http://petitions.surreycc.gov.uk/Waysafer/

Woking Canal Boat Trips, can you help?

At the recent canal festival The Basingstoke Canal Society named a new boat that will start regular public trips in Woking from next Easter. However, this service will depend on the availability of a group of people to operate the boat. The team will deal with both day-to-day matters (eg creating a trip schedule, downloading passenger details for each trip, rostering crew, and organising refueling etc) and making “strategic” decisions about how the operation is adapted or expanded according to demand.

If you are interested in getting involved please contact Martin Leech ( 01276-452754) further details can be found here The Basingstoke Canal Society - Trip Boat Kitty

Horsell's community resilience task force

Have you ever considered how Horsell might cope in an emergency?

If you're interested in helping Horsell to prepare for things that hopefully will never happen (!), we'd like to hear from you.

We're getting together with Horsell Neighbourhood Watch and Horsell Residents Association, plus a few other representatives (eg the manager at Horsell Co-op) to talk about what information resources might be useful to the village, in case any of the following things happened in Horsell:

  • Pandemic flu
  • Major disaster at Heathrow airport, taking all emergency services elsewhere
  • Large-scale fuel shortages
  • Major power cut
  • Problems with the water supply
We think it would probably be useful to have lists of keyholders to community buildings, people with 4x4 vehicles, registered first-aiders in the village, etc. As well as thinking about the best forms of communication to alert and mobilise village residents in emergency situations.

If anyone would like to join our small task force, please join the special mailing list for the resilience committee on the Horsell Snow Angels' page.

Upcoming events

  • Second Thursday Club - Thursday 9 March @ 8 pm
  • Horsell Moor working party on Saturday 11 March @ 9:30 am
  • Horsell Common working party on Sunday 12 March @ 10 am
  • Family Litter Pick - Wheatsheaf Recreation Ground - Saturday 18 March @ 10 am
Further details on all these events can be found below or at hra.interests.me.
