Reminder: Horley Village Coronation Celebrations

Not long now till the Coronation!

Horley bells will be ‘Ringing for the King’ on Saturday 6th May from 15:15 to 16:00 – listen out and/or come to the Church to watch.

Then on Sunday 7th May it’s the village Coronation Lunch at Hadsham Farm.

Lots of you have already booked tables and chairs to be sure you don’t need to bring them with you – and they can be decorated in advance if you are feeling creative! There are still a few left which can be booked by emailing: or by asking any of the Ladies Guild.

You are also welcome to just come along on the day – there are picnic tables outside or you could bring your own chairs to make sure you get a seat indoors if the weather doesn’t look too promising!

And don’t forget there will be a celebratory cake and fizz!

Mothering Sunday – and Saturday

We had a brilliant, fabulous, fun morning getting ready for Mothering Sunday this Saturday at the Old Schoolhouse – Mums, Dads, children and members of St Etheldreda’s church exercised their creative skills making Mother’s Day pictures, posies and badges.

Many thanks to Sarah Allitt and Sarah Taylor for helping organise the event and providing flowers, and to Sue Ashdown, Kate Wythe & Fiona Taylor for extra support.

Here are some pictures to give a flavour of the event.

Tomorrow on Mothering Sunday March 19th we will be in church for a Mothering Sunday Holy Communion starting at 10:30am, with posies for mums/ grannies/ aunties &c.  Do come and join us as we celebrate and give thanks for Mums and all they are to us.

Anyone interested in being kept in touch with activities for children and families please get in touch with:

Revd Guy Edwards (01295) 738191

Or Revd Alicia Baker (01295) 738593

If you would like to reserve a table for the Coronation Celebrations (you could go up in the morning and set up your own Coronation decorations), then please let Alison Tite, Helen Moss, Tracey Parsons or Sandra Easton know. Who will have the most regal table?

Coronation Celebrations – Sunday 7th May 1-4pm

Come and join us at our village celebration for the Coronation of King Charles.

Spend a few hours in good company in the lamb barn at Hadsham Farm to mark this historic event. The barn will be decorated and chairs and tables will be provided both indoors and outdoors, alongside the children’s play area.

Bring along a picnic and we will provide the toast – make it a day to remember before going home to watch the Coronation Concert. The Ladies Guild will also provide some delicious cakes for everyone (other volunteers’ cakes will be gratefully received)

Tap dancing taster lesson – Monday 27th Feb

Are you interested in learning to tap dance? If so, come along to the Old School next Monday evening when Denise Cook, who runs the current tap class in Horley on Monday evenings, will be doing a taster lesson for anyone who’s interested.

The lesson will be from 7pm to 7.30pm but feel free to come along 15 mins beforehand to see the class who’ve been tapping for a while in action at the end of their lesson. You don’t need to bring tap shoes for this session – we have some you can borrow. It’s great fun and good exercise!
