Visitors to the Jubilee Celebrations in Snoxhall Fields

Cranleigh Rotary was pleased to present the Surrey Yeomanry Concert Band, sponsored by Woodford Family Funeral Services, who played at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations on Snoxhall Fields on Sunday, 4 June.

The next event will be the village carnival on 25 June. This year we are trying something new and our ‘Hunt the Prize’ game promises to be a bit of fun for all. It is an opportunity for us to engage with the community and raise some money to support our charity activities.

Other successful fundraising events in recent months have included the ever-popular village quiz, which raised a total of about £910 in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust and Cranleigh Rotary Charity Fund, and a collection on behalf of Ukraine refugees. A total of £3,169.86 was collected on the street and a further £1,520 was received online, added to which we received a magnificent donation of £20,000 from Nic and Rowena Vrijland. Gift Aid will add more than £5,000, so that the total amount donated will be close to £30,000.

President Gail Woodford, who will soon hand over as Club President to David Barry. Gail said: “Thank you, everyone, for your support, guidance, help and encouragement during my Presidential year.”

Make A Note In Your Diary. Following their sell-out concert in October 2021, the London Welsh Rugby Football Club Choir will be making a return visit to Cranleigh Arts Centre on Saturday, 3 September at 7.30 pm. The concert will raise funds for Cranleigh Rotary’s charity fund and Cranleigh Arts Centre.

Tickets are now available and can be booked by phoning 01483 278000 or online at
