Hersham Festival

Tonight, I ducked by Hersham Scouts on Burwood Close, where they are preparing for their annual festival to raise money for their local scouts group.
 
Ed Grimsey runs a tight ship, and all hands were on deck preparing for the weekend-long festival. Friday night will see local bands and stand-up comedians perform, while Saturday is more of a family day. A range of local ales are also on offer – imperative for the local MP to sample, as pictured – all of which makes for a terrific local community event. To find out more about it, visit their website here.
 
Ed and his team hope to sell up to 1,200 tickets, pull 5,000 pints of beer and – crucially – raise around £10,000 for the scouts. It’s a fantastic effort. I hope they have a cracking time!
