A cafe in Horsham which relies on the support of volunteers has won a national award for its afternoon tea. The Centre cafe on South Street, run by Horsham Churches Together, was picked by This England magazine for upholding traditional afternoon tea.

Coffee shop manager Mary Sharp said the team was delighted to win.There’s so much competition in Horsham. I think it’s the homemade cakes and the table service that did it. One lady who comes in says ‘I may be on my own, but I will never be alone’.” Photo by Steve Cobb S12230099a
