The Lion King Came To Bookham High Street Today

Well, it is that time in England when villages have their village days and celebrate in one way or another. In Great Bookham there is a procession from the High Street down to the Barn Hall where there is all manner of the usual fete and village day stalls and refreshments. The procession each year has a different theme and this year it was Kings and Queens, so all the local schools have all the children dressed up - most were dressed as royalty down the ages but some schools took the theme on a different tack and there were some queen bees and lion kings. This jovial character who did not stop waving sat on a trailer towed by an old classic style convertable Merc. I am sure I have seen that trailer before with a very tubby bloke with a beard and a red suit surrounded by folk banging on doors with collection boxes. Could be, cos the trailer did have a "Rotary Club " badge on it.
