 JUNE 26TH Sunday OPEN GARDENS 2.30-5.30 49 & 16 Quarry St., 7 Castle St. See details below

 The next social event is The Open Gardens 2.30 to 5.30 on Sunday 26th June. This year we are featuring 2 properties on either side of Quarry St – No 49 which backs onto the Castle gardens and no. 16 which looks out onto the River. This is unique opportunity to see behind the Georgian facades of these wonderful houses that for too long were taken over as offices and are now gradually being returned to dwellings.

Teas will be served at 49 Quarry St, and a garden plant sale will take place there. If you are willing to help sell plants, please ring June Collis on 01483 567753. Please also note that the only way into this lovely garden is by two flights of stairs

Cost is £3 for adults an £1 for children, and this will also admit you to the other garden at 16 Quarry St, with river views.

Wendy Bennet would be grateful for donations of homemade cakes and offers of help ( 

 Please contact Jean Bridger  01483 573717 if you can offer a lift to any of our senior citizens

 SENIORS OUTING to Worthing – all 60+ HTAG members welcome Thursday 25th August.

We have booked a coach to Worthing. On the way we plan to pay a quick visit to the English Martyrs Catholic Church in Goring by Sea to see the magnificent painted ceiling based on the Sistine chapel in Rome. Our coach then takes us to Worthing Pier at around 1.30. The famous Harry Ramsden fish restaurant is just opposite with easy access to a lovely view on the sea front. They have a "special offer" for lunch £7 for fish and chips, bread  and butter and tea or coffee. Then free time until 4.30 pick up

The pick up time in the morning is 10.15 outside Addison Court. Holy Trinity  School opposite says that, as it is a holiday, people giving lifts can park there fort the day

 The coach is paid for by HTAGs Social Fund but bring cash for lunch and tips for coach driver and the church (as well as for your candy floss and ice creams! )

Jean Bridger needs to have names for those who wish to join the trip ASAP . Ring Jean on 573717. Leave a message if necessary. There should   be lots of spare seats as it's a 33 seater coach so any HTAG member over 60 who fancies a day by the seaside is welcome. Book up soon and keep this newsletter for reference.
