Thousands of people flocked to Frimley Lodge Park to attend the Surrey Heath Show on Saturday for a fun, family day out in the sunshine.
Radio Frimley Park hosted entertainment in the Show’s arena. A number of local groups including Generation Gymnastics, The Secret Stage School, Rock Choir Camberley, Camberley Judo Club and Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums performed.
For the first time in the Show’s history, the event incorporated a boating spectacle along the adjacent Basingstoke Canal, coordinated by the Basingstoke Canal Society as part of the Canal’s delayed 30th anniversary celebrations.
Organised by Next Chapter Animal Rescue, the Fancy Dress Dog Parade was a popular part of the day. The parade saw dogs dressed in a wide variety of costumes including superheroes, film characters and other animals.
The Classic Car Show which is organised by Bob Potter was a huge success. New Mayor of Surrey Heath, Cllr Helen Whitcroft attended the show. She awarded Paul Brazier’s pristine Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II Drophead Coupe the Mayor’s Choice Award. Paul very kindly donated his £50 prize winnings to the Mayor’s chosen charities.
Children’s entertainment included fairground rides, the miniature railway and excellent performances from Professor Dill’s Punch and Judy Show.
The Show’s mascot Spike the Hedgehog spent much of the day posing for photos but did manage to take part in a march with the Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums!
There was also a wide range of food and drink on offer as well as lots of stalls from local businesses, community groups and charities for customers to peruse.
