Fairs, fun and food.

June Blog


April and May have flown by, with some awful weather. In spite of the wether we've had some fun at our meetings. Our May regular meeting was an entertaining and informative talk about Hampton Court Palace and its ghosts and hauntings. Absolutely fascinating. I think a trip to the palace might make a weekend visit for any members interested. A few days later we had a lot of fun making jam for All Saints Summer fair – there was a lot of laughter, chat and news over stirring, chopping, bottling and washing up. We have many gorgeous jars of jam to sell and some knitted goods and sweetie jars. Please do come along and support the group at All Saints – volunteers who man the stall have free entry to the fair and free tea or coffee. It’s a wonderful place to meet up with friends, buy lots of wonderful goodies and have lots of fun. This is a great place to promote our group. Do pop by and see me on the Reigate Beekeepers stall and stock up on delicious local honey.


Our June meeting is a lovely walk to the Inn on the Pond. For those walking. Meet at Canada Hall at 6.30pm for a stroll to the pub via Merstham Rec and Spynes Mere (and possibly Glebe Lake if time allows) to the pub in time for food. If you don’t want to walk or would prefer a shorter walk, do get in touch for other options or a lift to the pub. Hope and pray for fine weather for both All Saints fair and our walk.

Monday meetings from July and beyond – Monday 8th July we will hold a traditional games night. Monday 12th August is a really interesting talk from Andy Sandford who works at the Holmesdale Natural History Club. That should be a fascinating talk.


Keep 8th September free. We will be holding a stall at the ever-popular Quality Street Fair. This is another excellent Merstham event to promote our group. Do come along and help on the stall.


Our big family social event takes place on 16th November – we are holding a folk music event with the CoHorts folk band at Canada Hall. £10 – bring your own alcohol and snacks. Invite your family and friends. We will provide tea and cake, and off course there’ll be raffle prizes. It’s going to be amazing.


Keep an eye out for our usual weekly events at the hub. Tuesday morning come long for coffee and chat. Thursday, Friday and Saturday come along and try your hand at knitting and crafting skills with Alice. 


Whilst The Harlequin and Dorking Halls are shut, there is a good selection of local outdoor theatre trips in Reigate and Dorking. I’ll pick out a few of interest and we can make plans to go as a group.  Details of their professional shows are available to view here.  and here


There are also some interesting local Amateur dramatic shows at the Miller Centre Caterham and the Archway Horley


Gatton Community Theatre are also staging an outdoor production in July -


Book tickets for any you’re interested in or look out on our events page for ones we’re attending .

Off course on our doorstep, we have Merstham Movies at the hub. The next film is Ticket to Paradise starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney – lightweight Rom Com – quite fun – tickets available from the Merstham hub or by phone – Monday to Friday betwee 9.30am and 3.30pm. Phone number is 01737 33461 to book by phone.
