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.

Everyone who lives or works in Horsell is welcome at the Second Thursday Club. It's an informal gathering of local people to discuss all the things that are going on locally, to come up with new ideas or help others to develop theirs. Our aim is to make Horsell a better place to live and work!

Other things that are likely to be discussed include:

  • Fundraising activities such as the Horsell Calendar
  • Horsell Prepared - Horsell's resilience plan to deal with community-wide problems
  • Horsell's traders and any issues they are having
Come along and listen or contribute and find out more for our plans for 2018. We're always looking for new volunteers to help as much or as little as you can manage. Everyone is welcome!

Lenten Working Parties in St Mary’s Churchyard from Sunday 18 February until Saturday 24th February 9am - 4pm

Starting Sunday February 18th until Saturday 24th February, 9am until 4pm

St. Mary’s Churchyard desperately needs your help! Many old graves have disappeared beneath the grass, trees have become overgrown and some of the graves have sunk.

However, you could make a difference by spending a few hours cutting back overgrown grass and shrubs. Soil needs to be barrowed from the far end of the churchyard to level off sunken graves. There will then be room to plant native wild flowers. Brian Hughes will be there to greet you and organise work throughout the whole of the Lenten Working Week.

Every hour spent working there makes a difference. Just turn up at the shed in the churchyard. Good gardening gloves and strong footwear are advised and any tools and a wheelbarrow you can spare

How to report fly-tipping & your responsibilities for waste disposal

Reporting fly-tipping

Fly tipping is a continuing issue on some roads in Horsell and on the edges of the village on Horsell Common. This week a fridge freezer was dumped on South Road actually on the highway. Please find details below on how to report fly tipping so that it is removed.

1. If a road is blocked and is impassable, report fly-tipping on the highway to Surrey County Council.

2. If waste is tipped in other areas in Horsell, report fly-tipping to Woking Borough Council.

Householder responsibilities for waste disposal

Surrey County Council have issued a reminder of householder responsibilities when having waste removed. Your waste is your responsibility - make sure your builder won’t fly-tip it. Find out more about what you can do to stamp out fly-tipping in Surrey - Visit bit.ly/2cJpi3F

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/
