Four Surrey Hills Society volunteers took our Surrey Hills stall to the Cranleigh Carnival on Saturday 29th June, as part of our summer shows programme of raising awareness with local people about the extent and the importance of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Chris Howard, Vice President of the Society and lead volunteer for the Cranleigh Carnival said, “I always look forward to the Cranleigh Carnival. It is such a friendly, happy community event, with so much to see and to do. I think the Carnival parade really makes the whole day. The local schools, Girl Guides and other local organisations dress up to a theme each year – this year being Cowboys and Indians. Best of all though is the two samba bands that play every year. So colourful to watch!”
“It is such a nice way to spend a Saturday, talking to nice people about a wonderful topic – our precious Surrey Hills,” she added.
