Village Tea Party – Saturday 4th September 2:30 – 4:30pm

Come along for a long-awaited village get together in the Old School, Horley, now Covid restrictions have been lifted!

Drop in anytime between 2.30pm and 4.30pm and stay as long as you like.

A complementary slice of home made cake and a cup of tea / glass of prosecco / soft drink will be on offer for all Horley residents whilst you chat to friends and neighbours. Everyone is welcome, especially those of you who’ve moved to Horley during lockdown and have missed out on Horley’s sociable side – we’d love to welcome you to the village with cake and a drink!

There will also be a children’s games corner (with prizes!) and a home made cake stall if you want to take one of the delicious Ladies Guild cakes home with you.

Looking forward to getting together again!
