Toovey’s featured in All About Horsham magazine

One of the photographs taken by Toby Phillips

Toovey’s were recently featured in the magazine All About Horsham (or AAH). It is an interesting outsider perspective of Toovey’s written by the editor, Ben Morris, after an interview with many of the team of specialists at Toovey’s. You can view this feature and many other interesting articles about the Horsham District on the All About Horsham (AAH) website here. Photographs were taken by Toby Phillips, including this one of Rupert Toovey on the rostrum. Toby is holding an exhibition at Horsham Museum and Art Gallery between 5th January until 10th March 2012, showing his photography of the Sussex Downs and Horsham rugby club players, whom he shot for a charity calendar.
