Next year, The Surrey Heath Show will take place on Frimley Lodge Park on 30 April 2016. The Surrey Heath Show is an annual event designed to offer interest and fun to all the family. The show consists of perennial favourites, such as the companion dog show, children’s rides, classic cars, military vehicles and arena events
The Surrey Heath Show team are currently recruiting a variety of volunteers with an array of skills to lend a hand with next year’s show. They are looking for Committee Members, Dog Show Assistants, Catering Assistants and General Assistants.
As a Committee Member you would assist in the organisation and smooth running of The Surrey Heath Show. The committee meets monthly between September and May, meaning you would need to be available to attend these meetings.
As a Dog Show Assistant you would share in the organisation and running of the companion dog show which is held on the day. This has always been a successful element of the show attracting an entry of over two hundred dogs. Ideally the person(s) should have a working knowledge of dog show running. It is a fun show attracting entries for both the pedigree and novelty classes.
The show runs its own BBQ and is looking for volunteers who can offer to lend a pair of hands with this. If catering isn’t your area of expertise and you can spare a couple of hours on the day of the show, your help would be most welcome with tasks such as handing out programmes and assisting with the parking of the stall holders.
Community Spirit is alive and well in Surrey but one of the things I hear over and over again by people involved with community groups, charities and voluntary organisations is that they sometimes struggle to raise their profile in the community.
It was really these groups in our community which was the inspiration behind the Residents Network when it was originally set up.
Local media expert and professional broadcaster Sean Usher has joined the Surrey Residents Network to help any community group, charity or voluntary organisation in the Surrey area raise their profiles and he will be doing this with a regular internet show called #CommunitySpiritSurrey
