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.

Help protect swifts in Woking - workshop 28 September

Posted on behalf of Thameswey Group
Thameswey, a company wholly owned by Woking Borough Council, has set up 'Swifts in Woking' a project that seeks to increase biodiversity within Woking Borough and provide additional habitats for swifts (classified as endangered in Great Britain).

Swifts are an incredible migratory bird that arrive in the UK in May to enjoy our summer and to nest, before returning to Africa in August. However, due to the design of new buildings there are often no spaces to nest and so their numbers are diminishing drastically. They want to raise the profile of this characterful bird so they can stop their decline and enjoy them for summers to come in Woking Borough.

In preparation for their next migration to Woking, 'Swifts in Woking' are asking residents if they'd like to come along to in workshops, where they can build their own nest box.

The remaining workshop is on 28th September. To book contact: swifts@thamesweygroup.co.uk

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

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
