“Just to say how much we enjoyed the wine tasting and how impressed we were with the range of Surrey Hills wines that are available. We certainly need to investigate some of the more unusual ones. Thank you for putting on such an interesting presentation and also for the excellent “nibbles” which were much appreciated! Everyone enjoyed themselves and felt a lot merrier afterwards!” – Mark and Virginia Turner

“Great day out in the Surrey Hills exploring these two quaint, historic villages. We learnt about the Tales & Trails of the Tillingbourne Heritage Lottery Funded project, which was exploring the industrial history of the Tillingbourne Valley. We learnt about the Tannery at Gomshall, the wool industry in Shere, popped in to explore beautiful St James Church in Shere, viewed a sympathetically design modern affordable housing scheme, and visited Gomshall Mill (now a great pub & restaurant) where we had tea. Such an enjoyable day out and really lovely group of people.” – Chris Howard
