A Sea Of Red Respect

Horley resident Peter von Staerck was the driving force behind the Royal British Legion, Horley Branch's  plan for a giant  “Hanging  Wreath” in the the  Town  Centre and planting   recycled artificial  poppies  in  the  Memorial  Gardens  for  Remembrance  Day,

He explains more about this in the  Crawley Happy Times  “Everything is made from recycled poppies from the wreaths and tributes of last year, all from 6 councils, that would all normally go to landfill!

Saturday; wet and windy in the Town Centre

31 October/1 November

Two Horley Events and I was away for both so relying on Facebook and a report from a local newspaper.

Horley  Bonfire and Fireworks in the Rec

'Fabulous bonfire and firework display in the Rec earlier this evening. Well done to Horley Lions and all their helpers. They did a fantastic job'

 The London to Brighton Veteran Car Run

' Watching the vintage car run, the Pudsey bus pulled up..Chris Evans driving...nearly mowed down a 1902 car!'

 Surrey Mirror - 
More than 380 pioneering vehicles dating back to the very dawn of motoring took part in this year’s Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run.

As tradition dictates, the 119th anniversary run set out from London's Hyde Park at daybreak and headed 60 miles south through misty Surrey and onto the sunny Sussex seafront.

They were joined en route by three classic coaches driven by BBC radio broadcasters Chris Evans, Alex Jones and Ken Bruce, raising nearly £350,000 for BBC Children in Need thanks to the generosity of their 40 passengers.
