An evening of celebration took place at Losely Park at the end of June to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Surrey Hills Society and the 60th anniversary of the Surrey Hills AONB. Hosted by Michael More-Molyneux, Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, in the beautiful Tithe Barn and attended by Dame Penelope Keith, Patron of the Surrey Hills AONB the evening was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the Surrey Hills landscape.
Organised by the Surrey Hills Society the evening provided the perfect opportunity to thank those involved with protecting the Surrey Hills from the small team to active volunteers, local partners, parish councils and other affiliates, who all work together to help safeguard the Surrey Hills for the future.
The evening was well attended and there were a wide variety of stands showcasing the work and projects currently happeing in the Surrey Hills. Displays showcased; Surrey Wildlife Trust with their Hedgerow Heroes project, the GASP Motor project, the Tales of the Tillingbourne, the Community Foundation for Surrey, the Surrey Hills family and more….
Sponsorship for the event was kindly received from Playle and Partners. Local Surrey wine from Greyfriars Vineyard was served, providing a great opportunity to showcase our growing number of vineyards in the AONB.
