OUTWOOD IN SURREY "The Village with the Mill"
The theme of the 2008 Show Parade was "Transport Through the Ages". The parade was led by East Surrey Morris Men with around 30 vintage and classic cars and motorcycles. Thanks to all those who took part, with special thanks to Sandra Clark, Parade Co-ordinator.
aul Daniels and East Surrey's MP, Peter Ainsworth, travelled to the Show in Paul's 1936
After opening the Show Peter Ainsworth toured the many stalls and attractions and visited the Outwood Horticultural Society's Annual Show in the Lloyd Hall. There were many local stalls including Wellie Throwing, Coconut Shy and Guess the Weight of the Pigs.
Other attractions included a Punch & Judy; more dancing by the East Surrey Morris Men (with guest appearance by a member of Reigate Fire Brigade who had brought their fire engine to the Show); a demonstration by East Surrey Search & Recovery and music from the Lingfield Silver Band. There were even more villagers and visitors than usual at the Show this year and we hope to have raised over £3,000 for local good causes.
Thanks to all the committee for their hard work in preparing for the Show and to all those in the village who helped on the day or in some other way. Without their help and the support of advertisers and sponsors Outwood would not have a Village Show.
