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.

After we spotted these photos on the East and West Molesey Group on Facebook, we couldn't help but ask West Molesey resident Craig Allnutt if we could post a blog about them and how he was able to capture these spectacular images.
"I live in Hight Street, West Molesey and moved to Molesey from Addleston around 5 years ago when I married my partner."
"With a celestron telescope and dedicated astro camera. Each picture can take anywhere from 3-15 hours of total exposure time."
"I first got into astronomy when my Dad showed me Haley's Comet outside our house back in the 80's. I started just by imaging the moon and planets and then about two years ago, I decided to take the plunge in to deep sace photography"
"I would have to say the people, it seems like a close community and there is always something to do such as taking a stroll by The River Thames or visiting Hampton Court Palace and the surrounding gardens."
Below are the images Craig posted on line, we hope you find them as interesting as we did!
