Paul Deach attended the Christmas Lights switch-on in Lightwater on Tuesday to report on it for the Surrey Heath Residents blog. While there he asked my views on the value of small businesses to their communities. Paul does good work in raising the profile of such businesses.
This conversation spurred me to recognise the contribution of one such in Lightwater – George Arthur Butchers. I was intending to post something about them, because I’d captured their festive window decorations in photo’s I took during the Christmas Fayre in the Square.
George Arthur Butchers are a key part of all of Lightwater’s Fayre’s in the Square, as they are also to the Hammond Junior School Experience Days. For the Fayre’s they provide hot pork or bacon filled rolls to visitors, all priced at £1 – stonkingly good value. All the butchers are good guys, Allen, John, Ian, Oliver, as are the Saturday boys [men really] who help out at their Fayre’s stall.
Here are my photo’s, and I hope to post a short video later of John Dickinson and Hammond school children making sausages at the last Experience Day.
