Love Food Surrey campaign

1 in 5 bags of food shopping gets thrown away -please help support Surrey's food waste campaign.

Surrey County Council is encouraging residents to go green and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, by reducing food waste.

Recent research indicates that Surrey residents produce about 83,000 tonnes of food waste every year with treatment and disposal costs in the region of £7.6 million. It also has significant environmental implications both in terms of its transportation, production and storage and according to WRAP wasted food costs the average family up to £50 a month 1...

The Love Food Surrey campaign will be helping households waste less food by developing recipe ideas for leftovers, showing how they can shop smarter, store food better and how to measure perfect portions, aiming to stimulate a behaviour change in residents that sees them throwing away less food. This will result in significant environmental and financial savings i1'1 terms of avoided production and disposal and will help residents to save money.

Camberley Heart Town launch

  Local volunteers from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) worked their magic on Saturday 17th September, when the Mayor, Councillor Tim Dodds, presided over a fun-filled day of events in The Mall, Camberley.

Visitors to The Mall were invited to have their blood pressure  tested, and learned how to save a life when someone’s heart goes into cardiac arrest.  3 mini-catwalk shows brought a  selection of donated items from the BHF shop to life in Town Square.  Men, women and girls of all shapes, sizes, ages and hues showed the  remarkable range of styles available from the high street outlet. Local singers performed, The Arena Leisure  centre held a taster session of Viper -  their new fitness class and funds were raised from a tombola.

It was a wonderful day, celebrating the British Heart Foundation’s 50th year, and the start of a commitment from the BHF and the community to work together to think about their heart health, learn more about preventing heart disease and encouraging children to be active. 

Heather Hunt, Fundraising and Volunteer Manager for the BHF said, “Many people are unaware of the pioneering work the BHF has undertaken over the past 50 years and the vital need for new     remedies for heart disease.  That’s why we are urging people in Camberley to get involved in making this the best of all 50 Heart Towns in the country.  Local people, businesses and schools will be undertaking various fundraising activities in support of the Charity’s Mending Broken Hearts Appeal, funding the research that will repair damaged hearts in a similar way that a broken arm or leg can heal itself”.

You may contact Heather on 01372 388430 or hunth@bhf.org.uk   or tina@vssh.org.uk at VSSH to get involved in this exciting project.

Surrey Heath Show 2011

Saturday 30th April saw yet another successful Surrey Heath Show which was enjoyed by thousands of people. The weather was perfect and the event had a variety of attractions for all the family. The highlight being the arrival of Surrey Air Ambulance which had to depart shortly after its arrival in the morning but it returned later in the afternoon.

There was certainly a lot to do during the day, the miniature railway not only ran a full days service but brought on to site a static display for youngsters of all ages  to look at. There was a choice of over one hundred stalls to either spend money at or to get information. Twenty five of these were community groups and charities who took the opportunity to raise their profiles as well as money. Children had the choice of several bouncy castles and for the tots there were roundabouts. Alongside these over fifty classic cars were on view and these included Montgomery’s Rolls Royce and a 1934 Nash. The marquee housed a range of craft stalls and refreshments organised by the Guides with the Camberley Youth Wind Orchestra providing music throughout the day. The main arena saw a variety of performances, ranging from local dance groups, a Lion dance and displays by the Camberley Judo Club. Frimley Park Hospital Radio Outside Broadcast team provided an excellent running commentary of events and activities throughout the day. Other activities included a Companion Dog Show which attracted entries from 150 owners and their dogs, alongside this there was a fun agility course for dogs. For the more green fingered members of the public there was the opportunity to top up plants in their gardens and displays by RHS members who gave out plenty of advice. Support also came in the form of the presence of both the local Police and Fire Services and the Army Cadets who did a brilliant  job of arranging the car parking on the day. The event was supervised by the Show’s mascot, Spike the hedgehog, a popular character with the children.

Overall this Family Fun Day out probably surpassed the previous ones in attracting more crowds, and a great time was had by all
