Summer 2020 edition

Never has it felt so important for us as a council to communicate with our residents than during these challenging times as a result of the coronavirus.

In this edition we are sharing articles to highlight the support and advice available to residents and local businesses at this time, and how we have adapted our services to meet their needs. We are also sharing features on activities we will have to look forward to in the future.

It brings details of our district-wide Community Volunteer Hubs and how to contact them, as well as information about the financial support and practical help we have available to local businesses.

It also updates you on the progress of our Local Plan development, invites you to an online tour of our Horsham Museum and Art Gallery and brings details of our actions to reduce our carbon footprint and protect and enhance our District’s local wildlife.

Also featured in this edition:

  • Details of how you can donate to our Horsham District COVID-19 Appeal to raise funds for local community hubs which are supporting the ongoing needs of the vulnerable during the coronavirus pandemic.
  • How local community groups are now benefitting from the Horsham District Community Lottery.
  • What we are doing as a council to tackle climate change by reducing our carbon footprint and partnering with the Sussex Wildlife Trust to protect or natural environment locally.
  • How our successful employment programmes are continuing to help local job hunters back into paid employment at this difficult time.
  • Useful information on how to sign up for our free virtual classroom health and wellbeing courses and helpful details on keeping mentally healthy too.

Many thanks to all contributors and also to the advertisers in this edition.

The cost of producing and distributing the magazine to almost all homes in the 205 square miles of Horsham District continues to be low thanks to advertising income and reduced production costs.
