…to the Surrey Weald village of Newdigate. We are located between the towns of Dorking, Reigate and Horsham, the latter being in the county of West Sussex. We are a vibrant rural community of around 1800 inhabitants and although only 24 miles from Central London the village treasures its peaceful rural surroundings and culture. Even today farming is very much in evidence with crops of Barley, Oats and Wheat being grown in the heavy clay soil.
Considerable historic research about Newdigate has been undertaken by our Local History Society, click here to discover more.
Newdigate Community Centre is aiming to start a monthly café in the Village Hall. The aim is to open the hall for the Community to have the chance of a chat and get together over a cup of coffee (or tea or hot chocolate) with cakes and/or biscuits. The entrance will be free but NCC will request donations to cover the cost of the refreshments, we expect it to be non-profit making but any surplus money could go to help with the running of the hall. This will be open to all age groups from pensioners to young mothers with toddlers and babes. The first café will be on Tuesday 13th February between 10.00am and 12 noon followed a month later on Tuesday 13th March.
Any offers of help or suggestions please phone 01306 631115 or 631391
NCC now have a new kitchen which we hope all users will enjoy. It been provided and installed by Orchid Kitchens of Horley and has been partially funded by a £5,000 grant from the Gatwick Airport Community Trust, a generous anonymous donation of £2,000 and £351 kindly donated from the closing funds of the Newdigate Friendship Group plus £100 from the Newdigate Horticultural Society.
