Christmas Trees in the Village - Thank you!

Christmas Trees in the Village - Thank you!

Thank you to at least 30 people who have helped to get the Christmas trees into Horsell Village High Street. On Saturday and Sunday, 17 and 18 November, 25 trees were collected and brought to the The Crown garden where they were trimmed and prepared by one team and then carried up to Scout HQ where lights were checked, hundreds of string ties cut up and lights and tinsel decorations put on all the trees.

On Sunday morning 17 trees were put into holders above the shops. Free standing trees will light up the Christmas market at street level. We could not have done this without the help of Paul Rimmer from Horsell Common preservation society who used his trailer to transport the trees.

The team at the Christmas tree farm in Ottershaw have sold us 25 super trees and they very quickly put all the trees into the trailer.

At The Crown John Mintram and Antoinette Harvey let us use the back garden and smoking barn to prep the trees.

Scout HQ let us use their HQ where we also stored the trees overnight.

Thank you to you all and to the teams of helpers who trimmed and decorated the trees.

It is truly wonderful that there is such a lot of volunteer help and community spirit. This is the first stage of the Horsell Christmas celebrations.

  • November 29 and 30 : lights on in the High Street
  • December 1st: Horsell Christmas market: lots of volunteers needed!
  • December 1st: Horsell High street will be alive with gift stalls and live music and bands on both sides of the High Street. It might be cold, but you can dance yourself warm!”

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.
