Dash of Colour lights up Frimley this weekend

This Saturday sees the green Frimley Lodge Park become a colourful rainbow for the afternoon with the Dash of Colour event.  This fun 5k walk, jog or run (or even dance or hop!) raises money for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, based in Farnham, Surrey.  Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, living with cancer or other serious progressive illnesses across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.  For over 35 years they have provided supportive and end of life care to local people, serving 550,000 residents.

The event starts at 1pm in Frimley Lodge Park and spectators are welcome – even if they might get messy!  The special non-toxic, biodegradable paint is thrown at approximately each kilometre point along the route.  Participants are also issued with a small sachet of powder paint to throw in the air at the same time at the start to create a rainbow moment as the event begins.

If the Colour Run isn’t for you then there are plenty of other local events on this weekend.  Why not head to the Camberley Car Show?  This event is open from 10am till 4pm and sees the streets in and around Camberley Town Centre decorated with a wide variety of vehicles including many rare examples of Veterans, Vintage, Classics, Hot Rods and Motorcycles.  Alongside the eclectic car selection visitors can enjoy live music and lots of other entertainment.  It promises to be a great day out for the whole family.  The event is free to attend and aims to raise funds for the South West Thames Kidney Fund which supports essential research into kidney disease and diabetes.  Last year the event raised a fantastic £7,000.

Easter eggs and Happy easter message on dark background

Celebrating Easter across Hampshire and Surrey

With Easter just a few days away here’s our round up of some of the top Easter events in our area, providing lots of great reasons to get out and about in the towns and countryside of Hampshire and Surrey.

Camberley are hosting an Alive and Wonderland Themed adventure on Saturday 4th April from 10am-4pm with fun for all the family including 8ft mushrooms, giant tea cups and a huge ‘Drink Me’ bottle, with free face painting too.

There’s 2 days of Easter fun in Aldershot town centre with a bunny hop competition starting on Friday 3 April, where children can search the town looking for pictures of Easter eggs hidden in shop windows and uncover the hidden word.  Saturday 4 April will see the return of the very popular children’s farm in Aldershot Town Centre.  Children will be able to meet springtime favourites including lambs, chicks, goats, rabbits – all for free.

Those looking to stretch their legs might enjoy the Easter Walk at Fleet Pond on Friday 10th April and Saturday 11th April from 10am-2pm.  You can join the Countryside Rangers on a self-guided walk which is suitable for all ages and dogs are welcome.  Meet the Rangers in the picnic area to get your Easter pack, find the clues, answer the questions, return to the picnic area and collect your Easter egg.  No need to book – just drop in anytime between 10am – 2pm.

On Sunday 5th and Monday 6th April you can bring some Cadbury magic to your family by joining in at one of the Easter Egg Trails at the Easter Eggstravangaza at The Vyne near Basingstoke or Winkworth Arboretum near Godalming.  For opening times and visitor prices please check www.nationaltrust.org.uk

Group of runners

New Year’s resolution to get fit? Why not enter the Fleet half marathon?

The Fleet Half Marathon takes place on 22nd March 2015. Although still a couple of months away, entries are filling up fast so if your New Year’s resolution was to get fit then why not enter?

In its 34th year, the long established Fleet Half Marathon is open to over 2,500 runners and features a traffic-free course which is gently undulating. The route is well marshalled and benefits from professional medical support. Designed to be completed in under 3 hours, the course offers an ideal build-up to the London Marathon or a fantastic achievement in itself.

If a half marathon might be too much in just a few months there are plenty of other options for runs and walks of shorter distance in our local area, which are still an achievement to be proud of. The Bolt Around the Holt in Farnham on 28th March offers an off road, traffic-free trail for all with routes of 5k and 10k, as well as a half marathon. The 6 mile Hook Fun Run & Road Race takes place on 17th May or the Basingstoke Half Marathon takes place on 4th October – giving you a few more months to prepare.

If running isn’t your thing then Hampshire and Surrey offer many other fantastic sports facilities including the Arena Leisure Centre in Camberley, the Connaught Leisure Centre in Aldershot and football, rugby, cricket, hockey, tennis, ice hockey, volleyball and even gliding clubs around the region.

If you are looking to move to Fleet or surrounding areas then why not check out our properties currently for sale, as well as some comments from happy customers who have sold their property through Check 4 Houses.
