Weybridge’s (and perhaps Elmbridge’s) first post-lockdown public event, Midsummer Madness – Weybridge Fayre & Market was scheduled for Saturday 26th June, subject to the Government lifting sufficient lockdown restrictions. UPDATE: NEW DATE 4th September
The Artisan Market starts at 10 am and runs till 4 pm, and will be located outside Waitrose and on Monument Green. The Community part of the event will be located at the southern half of Churchfields Car Park and will run from 12. noon until early evening.
This event is being organised by the Weybridge Town Business Group, Weybridge Society and the WeyBetterWeybridge Regeneration Project, with support and participation from Brooklands Museum, Brooklands Radio and Elmbridge Borough Council.
The goal of the event is to promote community spirit and give local businesses a boost as we move out of Covid restrictions — so the main aim is ‘fun for all the family’ and encouraging ‘buy local’. It is also an opportunity for the regeneration project to present a vision for the future of Weybridge town centre, for charities and community organisations to display their activities to the public and attract new volunteers, and to generally promote civic-mindedness and environmental awareness, as we will also be encouraging the use of local pedestrian and cycle routes.
Vicki Macleod is seeking members of the community willing to give an hour (or more) of their time to be Weybridge Fayre Stewards, at the car park.
