50th Anniversary Party

Some 80 Members and guests attended a party in the Causeway Barn, Horsham, on Saturday 16th July to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Horsham Society.

Guests included the Member of Parliament, local District Councillors and officers, representatives from Horsham in Bloom, Horsham Horticultural Society, Horsham Museum Society and neighbouring Nuthurst Society.

A fascinating collection of archive photographs of old Horsham were projected and brought back many memories.

The Society’s website was demonstrated and many of its publications were on display. Speeches were kept to a minimum but we were entertained by our President Dr Annabelle Hughes who recalled the mysteries of timber-framed buildings and what it was really like to live in Horsham in medieval times. Not nearly as comfortable as it is today!

An excellent buffet accompanied by some fine wines completed what was regarded by everyone as a very enjoyable evening.

Here’s to the next 50 years!
