A first for Thames Ditton!
The first ever Summer Fair in the High Street took place on one of the sunniest days of the year, on Saturday 26th May, 2012, a week before the Queen's official Diamond Jubilee. The bunting made by Thames Ditton Infants and Junior School went up along with the Union Flags, specially commissioned for the occasion. We had dancing on the street courtesy of Starlight Academy of Dance, Stage Studio and ZumbaLandA, a Royal Fancy Dress Competition and Thames Dittons Hottest Dogs, a competition to rival Crufts. Every shop pulled out the stops with a brilliant programme of events and promotions and all the cafes, restaurants and pubs provided a mouthwatering array of party food and refreshments. It was a fabulous day, the first of many to come!
