Horley Library - is on the move!
Horley Library is starting its move to Russell Square/Victoria Road.
Phase 1: 10th Oct to mid Jan - internal construction.
Phase 2: mid Jan to early of Feb - internal decorating / fit out.
Phase 3: Early Feb to mid Feb - installation of IT systems / books arriving.
This is an exciting move. Horley Library is one of the most used libraries in Surrey. Currently, we know very little about how the library will be set up. Libraries have changed and become great social spaces so we hope the new library will be innovative and become a centre-piece for the town. When we find out more we will post it here.
Over 1100 local people a week visit Horley Online.
It's your local community website - so let us know what's going on and we will publish it for you.

Christmas closures at Victoria Station plus the effect on the Gatwick Express.
At Christmas time platforms 9-19 at Victoria station will be closed from Sunday 23 December 2018 to Tuesday 01 January 2019. Most Southern trains will be rerouted to London Bridge. There will be no Gatwick Express trains but Southern and Thameslink services for Gatwick will run to and from other central London stations, including Blackfriars and London Bridge.
This info has been sent it for our local rail travellers by John Sharples: "Look out for the Thameslink compensation for the timetable fiasco in May/June. They emailed me and I’ve claimed my month back. It’s on their website too, so don’t miss out if you had/have a season ticket you are most likely eligible for something."
Reigate & Banstead Borough Council have announced a new campaign to encourage more people to become a Councillor. Their message is:

Maybe you want more things for young people to do, improved services for older people, more suitable housing or a local economy where local businesses can thrive.
