A project to enhance Horsham town’s Riverside Walk is awaiting a decision from Biffa on a grant application for £50,000.

Horsham Town Community Partnership held its Annual General Meeting tonight (Wednesday May 8) giving an update on its projects, including the Riverside Walk, which could see the 11-mile walk around the town significantly improved.

David Searle, project manager of the Riverside Walk, explained the four stages of the project: installation of signage, information boards, and benches; improvement of the paths; putting together a new brochure; and to recruit volunteers to maintain the walk.

Carol King also gave an update on Horsham Young People’s Elected Representatives (HYPER), a town youth group for 13-18-year-olds that HTCP has taken over in the past year from Horsham District Council.

Around 11 young people regularly attend from Millais, Forest, Tanbridge House School, and the College of Richard Collyer, raising £200 for the ‘You Can Do It’ charity which raises money to provide activities for disabled children, and designed a new flyer to promote HYPER.

Jane Apostolou, chair of HTCP, said: “Without the support of Horsham’s community we would not be here today and I hope we can fulfil as many of our objectives as we can.

“Thank you to everybody for all their hard work.”
