May is the season for fetes, carnivals, and shows

Soon there’ll be a flurry of outdoor events in Surrey Heath, starting with Chobham Carnival on Monday 6th May, followed quickly by Lightwater Fete on Saturday 11th May, and ending with the Surrey Heath Show on Saturday 18th May.

Who’ll get the best of the weather, that’s the imponderable question.

You meet friends and acquaintances at the Surrey Heath Show – a pleasant diversion. As I’ve done in previous years I snapped a few items of interest at the show, as we wandered around the show.

The Woking cacti society stand held us in deep conversation for quite a while, during which we bought more cacti and succulents. At the rear of their stand they had stunning large cacti, many in bloom. However, the ones we bought were small – space is a consideration for us and our growing cacti collection.

We were happy to bump into show organiser Tony Moore, a chance to congratulate him on his being awarded a BEM. The Mayor, Cllr Valerie White, chose a 1962 Vauxhall Cresta as her pick of cars in the classic car show. Here’s my phot montage,

Here’s reprise of the Surrey Heath Show in pictures. The events in the Arena was popular as were the Dog Show, and the performances of the Camberley Youth wind Orchestra. A grand day out, as Wallace would say.
