If you are a Horsley business or retailer we would be delighted to hear from you and we will add you to our waiting list. This is because for this year 2018/19 our capacity is 36 entries and we are fully subscribed. If we have enough interest we may take out a second page so by letting us have your email we can keep in touch.
Expertly curated and edited by our communications consultant and webmaster Brenda Aldred, the website www.easthorsley.info has been alive and kicking since 2014. It is bulging with information about your Parish Council and East Horsley and attracts around 1000 visitors every month. We are biased of course, but we believe it is one of the best updated and easy to navigate Parish Council websites in Surrey.
No. We are a civil local authority and the first tier of local government for all residents of East Horsley. The word “Parish” only features in our name because we represent and work for the geographical area which is for historical reasons called the “parish” of East Horsley.
For the moment we are asking for a minimum commitment to entries in four issues of the newsletter easthorsley.info but remember this gives you 12 months on the website.
Since its launch in winter 2015 easthorsley.info has never accepted display advertising. Even with the new Business Directory, the newsletter will have at least 87% editorial. So each issue will continue to be packed with news and information about important local issues and community events. And who best to have their finger on the pulse of all things East Horsley than the newsletter publisher, your very own Parish Council and its team of locally based contributors.
East Horsley is the largest village in Surrey and probably the only village in England with two railway stations. It is a prosperous parish with 66% of homes being in the top two Council Tax Bands (G-54% and H-12%) compared to 16% across Guildford Borough overall. The last census showed East Horsley had a population of 4,290 people with 57% being between 16 and 65 years old, economically active and with a significant disposable income.

Recent research for the East Horsley Neighbourhood Plan revealed that there were over 80 businesses in the village. These include numerous home-based ventures as well as our many retailers, local small & medium enterprises (SMEs) operating out of our various office sites and larger enterprises with a local branch. To help sustain the diversity and plurality of our community we wanted to give all these businesses a "shop window" in the only news publication exclusively targeting all East Horsley households as well as the Parish Council's highly informative and constantly updated website.
