Why Enhancing Horam
In plain English – to build on all that is good about Horam Parish and ensure we move with the times, attracting more footfall to keep our shops, businesses and clubs alive.
How The Enhancing Horam Project was born
Inspired by Wealden’s Street Ahead initiative, Horam Parish Council set up the Enhancing Horam Project in January 2013 to ensure that, with the development of the Merrydown site imminent, the village capitalised on the growth and was better able to support its many shops, clubs and societies.
Grant funding was provided and with the initial sum a rebranding exercise was undertaken for the village including a logo, stationery and design templates. Following on from this, the website was redeveloped. In the near future a Victorian Themed Christmas Evening is planned for Thursday 4 December 2014.
Tourism plays an important economic role in Horam and there is much on offer: explore the Cuckoo Trail, discover the Horam Manor Museum and enjoy the numerous Parish clubs, societies, shops, pubs and cafes.

Why we have developed a brand
Almost every part of the Parish is actively engaged in contributing to its vibrancy and we want to give an even wider platform for our Community Activities. The website and sharp clean brand helps demonstrate what we are about and provides an even greater focus for other forms of publicity.
About the website
Horam.Com website has been completely redeveloped to use the latest web technologies which makes the online experience more pleasant for visitors and also easier to administrate in the future. Colour and photography has been employed in good measure to enhance the website.
Content and layout has been re-structured to promote Horam Parish and surrounding area. In time we anticipate more involvement/interaction of the local community as a digital hub for Horam.
The Enhancing Horam project was officially launch on Friday 21st November at The Horam Centre.
Residents Survey 2014
We want to engage the local and wider community so we can build on what is offered. A survey has been taken. This survey concentrates on the needs of the community and has purposely been kept short and user friendly! The results will be published soon so that suggestions and actions can commence in early January 2015.
