Good News! The Red Lion is to reopen from Saturday 4th – see following from Dave Morris about the arrangements:
‘The Red Lion will re-open on Saturday 4th July from 12 – 6pm with a trial run for the patrons who supported the ‘text and take-away’ service. Regulars who had to shield are also welcome to the trial of new procedures.
Only the garden (and toilets) will be available for use.
Patrons will need their phones to register as per Goverment guidelines and orders will be taken by text. Payment will be card or cash.
Safe social distancing rules will apply and to that end there will be a maximum limit of 30 patrons on the premises.
Should all go well, the pub will be open new hours to suit the Summer garden trade:
Tuesday – Saturday: 4pm – 9pm
Sunday: 12pm – 6pm
After the popularity of the take-away service, the pub will continue to sell ale at a discount of 15% for those who bring their own closed containers.
These are very strange times, but it is hoped that the pub can continue to be the centre of the great community spirit that has come to the fore during the recent trials and tribulations.’
The annual village litter pick will take place at 10.00 on the morning of Saturday 21st March.
If you can spare some time to help out please could you gather in front of the Red Lion. Litter pickers, protective gloves and rubbish and recycling bags will be provided by CDC. If people have their own gloves, that would be great, as people are urged to protect themselves against any risk of infection, and take care to wash their hands thoroughly after the litter pick has been completed.
‘Progressive Drinks Sunday’ to start at 12.00 on Sunday Feb 2nd at the Red Lion Pub
‘Back by popular demand, we are delighted that the second Horley Progressive Drinks Sunday event will be run this year on Sunday 2ndFebruary. We do hope you will be able to join us, to start an otherwise unpopular month with a bit of a bash.
We will start at noon at the Red Lion pub, and then over a period of about two hours, we each progress to three different hosts in the village. You will enjoy wine and/or non-alcoholic drinks at each venue, and plenty of nibbles and finger food as well. So, over a period of about two hours, we each eat, drink and laugh with lots of other people – old friends and new.
This isn’t just for couples. Singles come too, and together we beat off any winter blues. The cost? Twelve pounds each. It’s a bargain – and any money we raise helps to fund our village church.
