Horace’s Outing

 

Horace’s Outing has been a regular event for many years.  The annual trip, usually to the seaside, began as a free day out for local pensioners.  The trip takes its popular name from Horace Wilshaw who began the tradition and raised funds for the trip and helped villagers for 40 years.  Horace raised money by holding a weekly Saturday night raffle at the Bell Inn, with prizes donated by local shops and individuals.  People would travel for miles for the chance to win a box of six eggs or a pot of home-made jam.  Money was also raised both for the trip and for the church when it was decided to auction the produce donated to the church harvest festival at the Bell.  Enough money was raised for one coach to take Haughton pensioners to the seaside each June and to provide a free lunch and dinner.  Horace died in 2008 but a committee of volunteers has carried on his fundraising work so that the trip has been able to continue.  Money is raised each year through various means, including a donation from the proceeds of the annual Harvest Auction at the Bell.

 

Recent trip destinations have included Southport, Llandudno and Blackpool, finishing with a meal at the Shropshire Inn.
