Saturday 29th September 2018 travelling by coach from Balcombe to the interesting town of Windsor and its Castle. The Castle andSt George’s Chapel have been in the news recently for the Wedding of PrinceHarry and Meghan Markle – see where it all happened! Have your own opportunity to experience the wonder of the largest and oldest continuallyinhabited castle which has witnessed so much of this country’s history andpageantry having been home to 39 monarchs since William the Conqueror. Many of our former monarchs have been laid to rest in the chapel including King Henry VIII, King Charles I and the Queen Mother & Princess Margaret. The castle experienced a serious fire in 1992 and was lovingly and beautifully restored by traditional craftsmen – see the results for yourself. The town of Windsor is on the banks of the River Thames and has some lovely shops and places to find refreshment – there will be time to explore. 

 

Recent Events

On Sunday September 16th, Balcombe had a chance to unite to remember and celebrate its role in World War One. Using the beautiful murals in the Victory Hall as our inspiration, we reflected on the events and joined in the old war time favourite songs and heard afresh the part Balcombe played in the Great War. With contributions from Balcombe School, The Victory Players and St Mary’s Choir.  We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful afternoon.  Thank you to all those who arranged the event.
