The Mayor and Mayoress of Woking joined in the fun at West Hall care home in West Byfleet, at its Summer Fair on Sunday 31 August, where over £900 was raised for the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices.
The Mayor and Mayoress, Cllr Tony Branagan and his wife Mary, met residents, visited stalls and toured the award-winning care home before judging the dog competition on the grounds at West Hall. Prizes were presented to Lindy McErlain and her Havanese, Barney, who won the Cutest Face competition and Martin Wyatt, whose Golden Retriever, Nelson, won the Waggiest Tail competition.
Visitors and care home residents enjoyed a fun filled day with live music and entertainment from R&R, games of croquet and giant Connect 4 as well as browsing the gift stalls or joining in the tombola and raffle.
Local children also enjoyed the bouncy castle, pony rides provided by Holly Bush Stables and face painting. The Mayor was also lucky enough to win the Name the Dog competition and went home with the supersized stuffed animal.
Costa Coffee in West Byfleet supported the Summer Fair, as two members of staff volunteered their help serving teas, coffees and cakes for the day, as part of their Community Project.
The West Hall Summer Fair was held to raise funds for the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices and a total of £900 was raised for the local charity. West Hall Manager, Kate Desmond, said: “Our Summer Fair was a fun-packed family day out and it was great to have people from West Byfleet and Surrey come along, join in and help us raise over £900 for the Woking and Sam Beare Hospices."
