The main aims of the group are to:

  • To assist with the management of Tanyard Meadows, but also other open spaces in Horley, for the benefit of nature conservation and local amenity value.
  • Encourage the goodwill and involvement of the local community.
  • To foster a wider community spirit in Horley, which in turn can help to reduce local crime and, or anti-social behaviour.

Brook Wood / Burstow Stream
