Heritage Day in Walton-on-Thames - 8th September 2018
A fantastic day was had by everyone involved in all of our 6 sites around the town with large numbers at St Mary's, the Playhouse and down at the Wharf as well as at the Fair in Bridge Street.
The Bear team won the 4x4 Tow and will be presented with a cup sponsored by Surrey 4x4 Response which they will hold for a year and then bring back next year to try and retain.
Winner of the brochure competition (£100 worth of vouchers) will be drawn at our Wrap meeting next week.
In the meantime, check out the brilliant video by Radio Wey below and the photos, which capture the brilliant community feel of the whole day. If you have some good ones, please send them in: firstname.lastname@example.org.
