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.

HRA's 'The Resident' magazine - summer 2020. Help (from the safety of your home) needed!

We are putting together the summer 2020 issue of the village magazine - a digital edition this time. Lucy, the editor, needs volunteers to help gather content for different pages. Perhaps there could be a page collating all the wonderful rainbows in windows? Maybe we can have pages celebrating the work of Horsell Heroes such as our local traders or those at the village schools? Or maybe you've already tried a home haircut and are brave enough to share the results...

You don't need to be a computer expert - the layout and design will be done for you - but if you are able to contribute or curate a page, please email Lucy on theresidenteditor@gmail.com

Woking News and Mail coming free through your letterbox

In response to the Coronavirus crisis the Woking News and Mail will be delivered for free in the local community. For details see above.

An update from Horsell Prepared

A big thank you for all the support that has been given to Horsell Prepared.

In a week over 115 requests have been handled by our Hot Line teams working 08:00 to 18:00 on a two-shift basis. Shopping, prescriptions collection & dog walking being the main requests. This team will continue to increase its capacity to meet an increasing demand.

A single request demands considerable coordination from confirming the exact requirement to identifying a local volunteer and briefing. The requestee needs be informed of the volunteers name for security reasons. Only once the task has been completed does the Hot Line close the call. For sure we are learning and adapting but our established processes are proving robust and effective.

Immediately the CV outbreak was announced, the Horsell Prepared team reacted and resourced the various operational roles. Local residents mobilised to deliver our HP information posters to every available letter box in Horsell.

We are encouraging local areas to look out for those who may need support and encouraging people to enquire how they might offer help. Particularly Key Workers, those who are keeping our country going and those who may be troubled by current events and need to be assured that support is around them. By managing demand at this street level, will assist in minimising calls to the Horsell Prepared Hot Line, and with an increasing demand this is a very valuable contribution.

Horsell Prepared would like to extend our thanks to everyone who is working with us, including our local shops. Everyone, just everyone is an important link in the HP team at this unprecedented time.

All Horsell Walks suspended until further notice

Wednesday weekly walks and Friday Gentle walks.

Following the guidance and advice which the government has announced today, it will be necessary to suspend the weekly walks for the time being. I am very sad to have to announce this. We have come to enjoy the really good company, chats, fresh air and exercise.

Please keep in touch. Caroline. c.e.hughes@ntlworld.com

Adopt a grave in St Mary's Churchyard

“Adopt a Grave” and become a churchyard angel!

t is almost one year since the “Adopt a grave” scheme started and now there are about 40 people tending graves and making such a difference ! Thank you to everyone. If you would like to adopt a grave ( or several) please contact Caroline:c.e.hughes@ntlworld.com. Once you have been allocated the number of graves you can manage, you just turn up at your own convenience. It’s a very peaceful place to work but it’s surprising how many people regularly walk through , so always a chance to say “hello”.

To celebrate one’s year’s work, there will be extra coffee and cake on Saturday March 14th at 11am. Please join the Woodlanders for refreshments.
