Attending Walton on Thames – Heritage Day

On Saturday 21st September we were delighted to attend Heritage Day in Walton on Thames, a fabulous community event organised by WOTTA.  We are keen to continuously develop our links and improve accessibility within the local community.

As a part of our celebrations we ran a stall for the day at the Bridge Street fair. It was a fantastic day and we thoroughly enjoyed being part of it. Thank you to all the volunteers and those who entered the competition to win the bear!

Congratulations to the lucky prize winner!
