We hope all our activities always have the Dorking Community at the heart of them

Our activities...

Christmas Lights Appeal

Each year we fundraise and organise the Christmas lights on behalf of Dorking Town. Our fundraising activites include evening events, collection boxes in shops, and light donations. We are also fortunates in getting a grant to help us.

Hanging Flower Baskets

In the summer we again fundraise and organise the Hanging Baskets for the Dorking and use the same activies to fundraise the amount needed.

Dorkers' Easter Egg Hunt

Over the Easter School holidays the Friends of Dorking have created the Dorkers' Town Centre Easter Egg Hunt. This is a FREE event for everyone. In the first year 38 shops took part since then this has risen to over 100. As it is over the whole of the Easter Holidays families have plenty of time to take part.

The year's Easter Egg Hunt starts on 31st March. Entry is FREE and everyone gets a small Easter Egg at the end when they hand their forms in. Forms will be available to downlod from this site as well as participating shops from Thursday 30th March (please see current list below). The forms give instruction on how to take part.

Once the Easter Egg Hunt has been completed forms can be handed back in the following shops:
SC Fuller – South Street
Harman – West Street
Rhubarb and Bramley – High Street
Oriund Coffee Shop – High Street

There are 3 prizes of £25.00 vouchers plus 3 runner up prizes. The more you do as a family the more chances there are to win! Correct entries get put into a hat and the winners are drawn out. ENJOY!

Forms will be available at participating shops (please see list below)

A downloadable form is available below.
