Welcome to the 11th Caterham Festival. Who would have thought that from a meeting called in 2008 that we would still be here? Over the years I have met and made many friends, visited many wonderful groups and some very dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly. Being involved has certainly changed my life.
One of our biggest supporters has been the Caterham and District independent. The paper boys and girls have delivered our programs to the whole area. However, the newspaper has stopped printing, hence we no longer have this valuable distribution resource which is why we have asked some of you, to deliver them to your local roads. We are very grateful to those who have volunteered and to those who will be able to help.
Last year, for the first time the Festival made a small profit and along with our major new sponsor UNL that has allowed this event to continue. I look forward to attending as many events as possible and trust that you will as well.
Caterham is a brilliant place in which to live and there is a great community spirit. Whatever happens and with many new residents coming to the area, that spirit will survive. Lets all help to keep Caterham great.
