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.

Horsell Flowerpot Festival - Summer 2018!

This year the Second Thursday Club will be holding a Flowerpot Festival in Horsell which will run throughout the summer.

The idea of this fun event is for anyone to make a flowerpot creation and display it in front of or in the window of their house, shop, school, pub, cafe premises etc. It will be free to enter and once we have a few flowerpot creations around the village a trail map will be produced so that everyone can have fun spotting them during the summer holiday. The Flowerpot Festival 2018 will be launched on the Garden Safari weekend which starts on the 23rd June and the festival will run until 17th August. A free flowerpot creative workshop will be run before the event for those who want to be inspired and get hints and tips on how to put the flowerpots together - date to be announced soon.

More information about the event will be posted on: https://hra.interests.me/ as well as on the village notice board (outside The Beijing Restaurant) and in the window of the proposed Horsell Hub (Seymours' old premises) and The Horsell Wire Facebook page.

Any queries please email secondthursdayclub@horsellresidents.com

It's that time of year when gardeners are getting busy in the garden so please don't throw away those unwanted flowerpots as no doubt there will be a school, organisation or neighbour who might like them soon.

until 17 Aug 2018

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
