A quick plug for the excellent Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust’s annual flagship event, the Heritage Day which this year is on Saturday 10th September.
Year on year this event gets better and better. Church Street, St Andrew’s Churchyard and the fields behind the church are filled with stalls, there are vintage cars and buses to see, tours of the Church belfry, a Punch & Judy show for the children, food stalls and of course the famous Duck Race along the River Mole. It is community engagement at its best. The day ends with a splendid concert in the Church.
The Trust are now very close to hitting their fundraising target for the riverbank improvement scheme which will turn this beautiful but neglected part of the town into a key visitor attraction. so I wish them all the best for a great day.
