What’s New – June


…and so to June and the Summer Solstice….

june-solstice-illustrationYayeeee it’s the month of the longest day of the year,  the Summer Solstice , which is when the sun is at its maximum elevation.

Interestingly, Solstice or Litha means a stopping or standing still of the sun, so here’s to the sun “resting” over us for a long summer!


buntingJune is the month of the Summer Fete (13th) which is organised by the Ladies Guild and seems to grow in popularity every year. It’s a great opportunity to detox your cupboards and if you’re lucky you might even win your stuff back! Before that in Hanwell there is HANFEST (6th/7th) a two day art exhibition and evening concert. Back in Horley we are packed with cricket  events, the last two Cinema showings until September (Mr Turner  & Selma ), the Progressive Dinner (27th), and all the usual weekly activities. Find out about these and more events in our village Calendar.
