This project cannot be succesful without the 'no strings attached' type of help we have already received from the following...

The Community Foundation for Surrey is an independent charitable trust established to inspire local giving for local need. The Community Foundation works both with donors who want to give something back to their local communities and the voluntary groups providing vital services for local people.

Companies, individuals, families and trusts can establish a fund with the foundation, which supports a growing programme of grant-making to communities. The Community Foundation for Surrey is part of a national network of 48 Community Foundations, one of the fastest growing philanthropic movements in the UK.

For more information about the Community Foundation for Surrey, applying for a grant or donating please visit or contact: Community Foundation for Surrey | Tel: 01483 478092 | | 30 Church Street, Godalming, Surrey GU7 1EP

The Community Foundation for Surrey supported us by providing a generous grant towards new Windows for the Potting Shed project.

Seddons - Amazing support from Clive Robertson at Seddons, erstwhile West Horsley Parish Councillor, without whose advice and time we simply could not have secured the lease. The Green Tree Man - Justin, for supporting us on the ground ::-)

Tozer Seeds - As well as being the largest UK vegetable seed breeder (with international reach), Tozer has a web-based division selling smaller quantities of Tozer commercial seed to growers in the UK and Europe . We are simply thrilled to have their support, not just for seeds but also for specialist advice.

Challenge Fencing - Cobham timber supplier (though they have National coverage with a branch network) offering collection or delivery of a large stock of fencing materials, timber, fencing, fates, trellis, sleepers, and decking. Almost as soon asyou step onto the G&F site you will see how heavily we have relied on Challenge support. We are particularly pleased with and grateful for our beautiful entrance gate.You can reach Challenge by clicking the link above or by calling (Cobham) on 01932 866 555.

The National Trust - is recognised as the nation's heritage guardian, but its activities are much more widespread that just looking after our grand houses. The land on which this project is being built is owned by the Trust and we simply cannot do it without them. They are not just helping us gain access to land though, the National Trust has been providing advice, guidance and support of a kind that has breathed life into something that was once just an embryonic - and seemingly ridiculous - idea.  

The Parish Councils of both East & West Horsley have been supportive from the outset, not just in terms of advice and moral support but also sheer manpower and funds. East Horsly got us started with seed funding, and West Horsley have paid for our planning application. Both Parish Councils ae working closely with Grace & Flavour to provide individual allotments to a number of local residents as part of the project. Thank you!  
Thanks to the trustees of the Lady Noel Byron Trust for being the very first supporters to come up with hard cash - they very kindly offered to cover the cost of the lease as well as our planning applications and Land Registry fees.

Horsley Directory - Effective communication is key to our success and we are very grateful to local publication The Horsley Directory and its editors Rachel & Brett for updating you all on our progress and including diary dates. You can contact Rachel & Brett at
