It's not long until #LoveMolesey and the team are busy finalising details for a huge range of projects. So far they already have cleanup projects, opportunities to make a difference in our local schools, care homes and the day centre, tea parties for seniors, a fun games night for young people and even a history walk along the towpath. Over the coming weeks they'll be announcing lots of others so keep checking the website www.lovemolesey.org to find out more.
On Tuesday 13th March they'll be holding their launch event, during which you will have the opportunity to hear from the organising team all about the vision behind #LoveMolesey and what’s coming up. You will also have the chance to meet many of the team leaders to learn more about the different projects which will be running over the course of the 4 weeks and how you can get involved. Refreshments will be available, we look forward to seeing you there!
The Magical Molesey event is hosted every year on Walton Road in East Molesey. Local businesses offer discounted goods and raise money for good causes, all in the name of the festive season.
Our friends at Musicland East, East Molesey will be switching on the lights on Walton Road that evening along with carol singing from local schools and community groups. We also plan to have a few Xmas treats outside Belhaven House on Walton Road, East Molesey to help Sakura Hair and Body Retreat raise money for their selected charity.
We're no doubt excited to be part of Magical Molesey 2015 which is on the 2nd December 2015 starting at 5pm. We look forward to seeing our fellow Molesey residents there.

Will you show your support? Karen Lamb of West Molesey is fundraising for the Princess Alice Hospice with a target of £3000. She has already raised nearly £500.00 of her target and is training hard. Her heart felt story of what inspired her to take on this challenge is below along with details of how to donate.
"Three years ago, my partner Mike and I were leading a normal, happy life together when everything changed. Mike was diagnosed with esophageal cancer at the age of 50. Three weeks later, on New Year’s Eve, he died.
Mike didn’t have the chance to benefit from the wonderful care of the Princess Alice Hospice. I want to raise money so that this care is available to as many people as possible who find themselves in a similar position.
My name is Karen, I am 48 years old and I work in the Retail Department of Princess Alice Hospice.
A few months ago, the only reason I would get on my bike was to cycle to the pub! Now I’m training to do a 10 day, 500km cycle from Vietnam to Cambodia.
If you’d like to help me to achieve my goal, please donate whatever you can to this wonderful organisation.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story."
