Events

Saturday 16 July 2005, saw a Fun Day, organised by Ash Parish Council on the Recreation Ground at The Ash Centre.

Events got underway in the morning with the judging of the flower and vegetable growing competition. There was also a flower theme painting competition for children. This was very well supported by two local schools; Shawfield Primary and Walsh C of E Infant School. There were so many fabulous paintings that one of the walls in the main function hall of the Ash Centre was completely covered by them!

The Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Tamsy Baker officially opened the Fun Day.

The Radio Frimley Park Hospital Team compered the main festivities, and the D.J. s, with their humour and imaginative choice of music, did a brilliant job, of getting people to join in with the swing of things.

Various displays were staged in the central arena, ranging from the excellent Connaught School steel band, to a Taekwon-do demonstration. The Ladies Keep Fit display attracted a large audience, as did the Ash Playmakers with their Gypsy Dance and a story of murder and intrigue.‘ The Canine Circus’ of performing dogs, on only their second public event, provided light relief.

Also in the central arena was the Children’s Fancy Dress Competition that was judged by Michael Gove the new Member of Parliament for Surrey Heath.

There were numerous stallholders who represented various groups from in and around the village. They were there to either raise money for charity, or to promote and raise awareness of their particular activities. The feedback confirms they had a great day.

Also present were the traditional selection of refreshments, a burger bar, ice cream, candy floss and not forgetting, the beer tent. There was also short tennis, provided by Ash Tennis club and a funfair for the children.

The Fun Day was an enormous success, which was helped by the glorious sunshine. Ash Parish Council would like to thank all those volunteers, helpers and staff who gave up their time, to give everybody a very enjoyable day.
