The Annual Chairman's Thank You Party

The Chairman's Thank You Party was held this year at The Drift Golf Club, attended by more than 100 residents, we celebrated our local volunteers, community and businesses.  Chairman Robert Taylor said, “It was wonderful to welcome all the volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year to help make our village special - we can’t thank you enough’.  

Our 2023 Volunteer of the Year is Roy Proctor, chosen for his long-term leadership of the Horsley Countryside Preservation Society and campaigning on local countryside issues.
