Christmas will arrive early in Horley, with the Horley Christmas Fayre on Saturday 28th November – just less than a month before the big day.
The annual Fayre is organised by Horley’s Association of Traders (HATs) and will see up to forty local sellers, groups and organisations selling their festive wares, along with family entertainment and of course; that all-important Christmas lights switch on, between 10am and 4pm.
“The atmosphere will be electric in Horley as we build-up to turning on the Christmas lights at 4pm,” Chris White, local butcher and HATS member, says. “The High Street will be buzzing as we will have lots of stalls, activities for children and live music all day.”
“HATs put a lot of effort into the day and we are particularly grateful to our Christmas light sponsors and the people of Horley who always donate so generously to the lights fund.”
This year, the amount raised stands at almost £5,000 – with donations coming from local sponsors, the community St George’s Day event and individual residents, digging deep and supporting the cause.
Horley’s Christmas lights will be officially switched on by the winner of the school’s colouring in competition, also organised by HATs, alongside a very special guest (to be revealed closer to the event!).
So, wrap up warm and enjoy a day of community festiveness – we’ll see you there!
