Snow Angels Are Go!

In view of the likely snowy weather in Horsell, we are expecting to activate the Snow Angels service from 5pm Thursday 12th January.

If you know of anyone who might need help so they don't need to risk going out in the snow, make sure they know they can call upon Snow Angels during bad weather, and the number to call is 01483 380025. Snow Angels is a service provided by volunteers for anyone who needs help with the following services in particularly bad weather:

  • Shopping
  • Dog walking
  • Prescription collection
  • Snow clearance
Woking Borough Council has been in contact with the Met Office and confirmed that Woking will be likely to be affected by snow on Thursday. Thanks to our local Councillor Colin Kemp, Snow Angels and the Residents' Association are well informed of what the Council's plans are.

The main points are:
  • We can expect heavy rain from 10am until early/mid evening
  • We can expect snow from around 5pm until mid evening. Around 2-4 cm is expected
  • The warning is of "Low Likelihood of Medium Impacts".
  • There will be widespread frost throughout Thursday evening continuing over the weekend
  • More snow showers are expected at the weekend
Serco have already begun preparations for the snow, including having resources available and fitting snow ploughs to tractors.

We are very likely to activate Snow Angels during Thursday if snow starts to settle, and Snow Angels Volunteers will be informed by text message and email, and asked to confirm whether they will be available.

If we are set for a snowy period, Snow Angels will continue to operate throughout the period.
