Welcoming our Neighbourhood Wardens

Last week I enjoyed meeting up with the new Horsham Neighbourhood Wardens at Horsham District Council and going out with them on patrol.

On Patrol with the Cadets!

It was a great pleasure to visit the Horsham Army Cadet Force on their recent training camp in Crowborough. The camp gives Cadets the opportunity to practice their skills in fieldcraft whilst meeting Cadets from other detachments throughout the County.

Celebrating our Primaries’ Success

Education at all levels in and around Horsham has an enviable reputation. However the county seriously lagged the national results in primary at Key Stage 2 which was a source of concern.

Moving forward on Brexit

Two weeks ago I wrote that whilst the House of Commons had made clear what it did not want as the basis for our Withdrawal from the EU, it had to be prepared to come to a conclusion on what it did!

Prioritising our Primary Care

Congratulations to East Surrey Hospital’s “Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust” which this week has been rated ‘outstanding’.

Celebrating the Year of Culture

The welcome at the launch on Saturday in Horsham Park for the Horsham District “Year of Culture” was as warm as the temperature was cold!  It was a great celebration of what is a superb endeavour.

Article 03.01.19

I wish you a happy new year,  conscious that internationally, 2019 starts on an unsettled note. 

The U.K. is focussed on Brexit and the concerns and opportunities this represents.

Wishing you a Happy New Year

I hope readers have enjoyed a peaceful Christmas.  This is the week in which our TV screens and papers will be dominated by reviews of 2018 and looking forward to the year ahead.
