Past Laptops for our future

Cllr Martin Saunders of Horley Town Council has launched an appeal for old working laptops which may be stored away and sitting unused in a cupboard.

Martin is collecting these in order to refurbish them for donation to local schools so they can be used by families not able to afford their own equipment to get online. So far, 44 laptops have been generously donated.

Martin recently spoke with SUSY Radio’s Mark Tickner about the project:

If you have a working laptop which you don’t need any more, and it originally came with Windows 7, 8 or 10 please get in touch with Martin at [email protected].

A new Mayor for Reigate and Banstead was elected at last week’s first virtual Annual Council meeting. 

Councillor Rosemary Absalom was elected at the meeting which was held online for the first time due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.  As Mayor she has chosen the Community Fund for Reigate & Banstead as her charity for the municipal year. 

Councillor Frank Kelly was elected as Deputy Mayor, a role he also held back in 2017. 

Both councillors have lived in the borough for many years.
