Horsham District Councillor Karen Burgess performed the very important duty this morning (May 17) at the Sussex Barn in north Horsham, a council spokeswoman said.

The Chairman was invited by the venue’s manager Lucian Hornea to pull the first pint.

Mrs Burgess said: “It was a pleasure to be invited along. I am really pleased that this family oriented venue can at last reopen as a result of the Government’s lockdown restrictions being lifted, allowing people to eat and drink inside.”

“We are a venue for the whole family and very much look forward to being at the heart of the local community going forward.”
