His methodical, patient and immensely detailed work on the Horley Master Plan has been outstanding. He served on the Horley Master Plan Task Group and the Horley Master Plan Advisory Committee.

He has worked tirelessly to improve and protect the local environment, bringing great knowledge and commitment to this role. He launched Horley in Bloom in 1995 and coordinated the competition until 2005.
It is for this dedication to the well being of Horley that Andrew has been recognised and the Award has been made."
