The late May bank holiday Monday is traditionally the date of the Surrey County Show. Each year the Surrey Hills Society has a presence within the Visit Surrey marquee and promotes the Surrey Hills AONB and the Society. As the Society has grown, so the range of leaflets and activities on our stand has expanded. This year we introduced a photo quiz to see how well the public knew the Surrey Hills. This seems to be a great success so if you fancy having a go, come along to see us at one of the shows we are attending and test your skill.
At this years County Show, about 6000 people visited the Visit Surrey marquee and most of them seem to have spent time at our stand. Consequently, this has been an important shop window for the Society. Although the picture shows the stand without customers, this was a very rare occasion right at the end of the day. From first thing in the morning until mid-afternoon it was incredibly busy and non-stop work for all our helpers – to whom we extend grateful thanks .
