Held on the village recreation ground, behind All Saints’ Church, on Saturday from Midday to 4.0pm the Lightwater Fête and VE Day anniversary celebration attracted crowds. Seemed to me there were many more children at this year’s fête than last year.
While there were slightly fewer stalls and stands than in previous years, they all gained plenty of visitors. Pride of place being given, naturally, to the Windlesham branch of The Royal British Legion, who were next to exhibits from the Royal Logistic Corps Museum.
The show arena was a busy place all day with dog agility performances, Chobham Morris Men and their lady in a horse costume, Gordon’s School Pipe Band with their Scottish dancers, and the younger pupils from Lightwater’s own Terri-Jayne School of Dance entertaining with their colourful dance routines.
The fête offered places to test your skill with skittles, penalty shoot-out, and a test your strength hammer. John Medhurst and his Fullers dray horses were kept busy with free rides, and the Windlesham & Camberley Camera Club, exhibition in All Saints’ Church Hall provided an indoor diversion.
