Various organisations within West Horndon regularly publicise local events taking place within the village.  Recent and upcoming events are detailed below:

Christmas Tree Lighting Event - Village Hall - Sunday 7th December 4pm

Come and join us for our annual Christmas tree lighting event at West Horndon Village Hall on Sunday 7th December at 4pm.  WHPC will be supplying warm mince pies, sausage rolls and hot mulled wine to help start the festive spirit in the village.  There is no admission charge, and refreshments are complementary.  We are looking for any donations you are able to provide however, with our chosen charity being the Salvation Army who will be playing at the event.  There will also be a raffle with all money raised also going to charity.  Do spread the word so we can get as much of our community together for this event, which will also feature our local school children singing.
