The back to school special

Hello and welcome to episode 19 of Cranleigh Community Radio. It’s Friday 4th September 2020 and I’m your host, Martin Bamford.

Coming up in this episode, it’s a back to school special. We start by hearing from Becky from Cranleigh-based Forest School business Flo & Fawn, about how to use the Great Outdoors to support your child’s education this autumn and beyond.

Lynda speaks to Adam Cole, I chat with Trevor Dale from the Cranleigh Society about some important new developments in the village. There’s music from Paul Rich, with his song Run To Me. We hear from Katie at Cranleigh Arts. There’s the latest instalment of Frank Penny and the Mystery of Ludlow Hums, read by local author Jeremy Elson. We hear about the latest fundraising cause at the Co-op. Trisha Broomfield reads a back to school themed poem, and Stephen Dennison introduces a piece of classical music.

That’s a lot to get through, so I’ll get into the episode as quickly as possible. But first, this Sunday, it is Classics on the Drive, a safe walkabout event for the whole family with a parade finale at 3.45pm on the High Street.

Cranleigh Lions have organised this event as a replacement for their Classic Car Show this year, and they are expecting over 60 cars on display in private drives around Cranleigh.

Watch out for the leaflet and map being posted through your letterbox, pick up your walking map from the Cranleigh Lions stand at Stocklund Square on Saturday or download the map from
