Walton Goose Faye & Heritage Day

Today, I joined Walton Goose Fayre and Walton Heritage Day for a wonderful celebration of the town. Local businesses and civic groups lined the river and Bridge Road (including Walton Rotary club, pictured below with Mike Brown and Rob Freeman). The Cobham Band were on fine form (as below), and there was a hog roast and homemade cakes on offer. Walton Conservatives were out in force. I joined Barbara Cowen, Racheal Lake and Andy Kelly at their stall by the river (pictured immediately below).

The most poignant moment was putting up a plaque to commemorate Sarah-Jane Shellard, the dynamic head of Walton Business Group, who passed away this year. Her friends and family joined the tribute. Sarah-Jane was an absolute sweetheart of a person. She was brilliant at keeping me in touch with retailers and business sentiment in Walton. A truly fantastic person, we'll miss here dearly and I was proud to see her recognised in the heart of the town.
