Exploring Our Rich Local History!

This October some of our members took a walk through time in Little Bookham! We roamed the charming Little Bookham Street, not because we were lost after a visit to Ye Olde Windsor (though we did start and end there!), but because our History Belles group, led by Ann & Sue, embarked on a captivating historical adventure right in our neighbourhood.
Little Bookham Street boasts some remarkable quaint historical houses right on our doorstep, with the oldest being Half Moon Cottage dating back to the 1400s!
There was even the added bonus, of chatting with a few local residents who graciously shared impromptu histories of their homes. Great way to spend a couple of hours discovering a little more about our #LocalHistory.


Gin and Cheese!

A group of 17 Belles visited The Crossroads Store in Horsley this week for a Gin & Cheese Tasting Event. The gin we sampled was a delicious one from Sherlock & Sons Distillery of Ripley followed by several wonderful cheeses carefully chosen by Jenni from Crossroads Store. We were given plenty of time to look around this delightful shop and also took advantage of the book swapping service held in the telephone box outside the shop. Bring along a book you have read and swop for another one; recycling at its best! Thanks to Jenni for hosting this event and we hope to be back in the future.
