Don’t forget to visit Caroline’s plant stall!

Every year Caroline works hard to provide us with a brilliant plant stall outside her house. This year is no different, so please remember to visit Caroline’s plant stall. You could get some amazing plants for your garden, or even your basket/pot for the village competition. If you have any spare plants then please donate them to the stall.

All funds raised are in aid of St Etheldreda’s.

Progressive dinner on 11th June – more hosts needed!

Due to a fantastic response from the village regarding our forthcoming Progressive Dinner, we are looking for two more hosts.

It really doesn’t have to be Cordon Bleu and if you haven’t hosted before we can give you plenty of hints and tips to make it as easy as possible.

The progressive dinner is back on 11th June!

The highlight of Horley’s Social Calendar is back. The 11th June is the date to meet up with new and familiar faces and sample the culinary delights of fellow Horley residents.

We meet at The Red Lion where you will receive the first of three envelopes detailing where you will go for your starter. There you will leave your £25 – and please bring a bottle of wine per person to give your first host. After two further courses in different locations we will go back to the pub.

The Progressive Dinner is always a great night and raises very much needed funds for the church.

We are currently recruiting hosts and taking names of those attending – please contact Sarah Allitt on, 07834370767 or 01295 730634
