Local News 29th March 2021

In a week that marks a year since the first lockdown we have a story of remembrance in Epsom Hospital rainbow of reflection and news about a Royal visit to Headley Court Seacole Centre, both from Leatherhead Living. Our stories this week have an historical theme, including when the branch of Citizens Advice Epsom and Ewell opened 80 years ago. We also have several recent local planning stories some with an historical context such as the history of Horton Cemetary and preservation of the site, from Epsom Civic Society. We finish with exciting news about how to buy tickets for Theo the Magician’s Magic show when you donate to the Epsom’s Casey Ward appeal. We hope you enjoy these and other news stories in this special Easter episode and wish you a safe and enjoyable Easter holiday.
