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.
In the summer we again fundraise and organise the Hanging Baskets for the Dorking and use the same activies to fundraise the amount needed.
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.
Our Dorking Christmas Lights Switch on will be on the 24th November 4.15 - 5.45
We are pleased to announce that the event will be hosted by MC Matt, Dorkers and Merlin will be there, plus the cast of Sleeping Beauty the Dorking Halls Panto.
The lights will be switched-on at approximately 5.15 by Chairman of Mole Valley District Council Simon Ling.
Thank you to all those that are supporting this event.
