  • 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.

The group will run a programme of practical conservation tasks and activities on Tanyard Meadows and elsewhere (with prior consultation and permission from RBBC, HTC or other land-owners.

The group can consult with local authorities and people, to publicise the group and its activities, raise money to support these aims, apply for grants and receive donations.
