Volunteers from The Knaphill Residents’ Association (KRA), Mizens Railway and local community groups had been working for months to prepare for the Knaphill Village Show on 16th July, so we were not going to let the grey skies and a few drops of rain dampen our enthusiasm.
There were stalls and attractions from Knaphill community groups, churches, craftsmen and women and local businesses, plus marvellous Mizens train rides. There was Live Music from The Charlie Farley Sunday Four, a well stocked Beer Tent, BBQ and lots of food and refreshments to try. Popular new attractions this year included: Professor Dickie Richards Punch & Judy Shows, Bellytricks – Belly dancers, Alysia Welch’s Diddi Dance and Chobham St Lawrence Morris Dancers. We had a wonderful day with over a thousand visitors to the Show.
The Knaphill Residents’ Association would like to thank everyone who helped to make the show such a success. We are really grateful for the financial support of Andrew White at Seymours Knaphill as the main show sponsors, and the many other local businesses and individuals helped by donating Prizes for the Horticultural Show and for the Tombola.
Special thanks go to the volunteers, the clubs and stall holders who worked so hard to create a traditional event for everyone to enjoy. Thanks also to the people of Knaphill who brought the sunshine with them to share for this fabulous community day.
Thank you everyone.
Remember Mizens Railway is open on Sunday and Thursday afternoons during August.
