Thames Ditton Supporter Hub

Background

On Sunday 30th July (0900-1730) the Prudential Ride London cycle event makes it’s way through closed roads and  the village of Thames Ditton, Surrey becomes THE place to catch all of the best of the action. Being perfectly situated towards the end of the course (of the 46 mile, 100 mile and Pro Cyclist events) it is THE place to see all of the riders as they pass along Portsmouth Road between Esher and Kingston upon Thames.

Giggs Hill Green is a pretty, open green space at the heart of the village of Thames Ditton and is also home to the Thames Ditton Cricket Club.

 

The inaugural Thames Ditton Supporter Hub

Given that many of the roads around Thames Ditton will be closed for most of the day, a small group formed themselves into a Committee to develop this very first (of hopefully many!) Supporter Hub. The concept being to turn a potential negative (limited access out of the village due to the surrounding closed roads) into a positive (bring the community together; provide safe space and plenty of activities for the cyclists supporters, families, friends and the general population to enjoy the day).

We have made it a not for profit community event that brings people together; provide them with plenty of activities to pass the time when not watching the event AND raise money for charity. These charities will be the Princess Alice Hospice (www.pah.org.uk) and, our hosts for the day, Thames Ditton Cricket Club.

Loads to do, see, eat and hear!

The Thames Ditton Supporter Hub is THE GO TO place to watch Ride London.

A non profit making event, run by local volunteers to raise money for Princess Alice Hospice and the Thames Ditton Cricket Club.

Hub Event Director, Danny Russell, says, “With many of our local roads closed during the day we wanted to provide an opportunity for the local community to come together to enjoy this hugely successful event. The Thames Ditton Supporter Hub at Giggs Hill Green will be a great place to watch the cyclists and will be open all day – from the first amateur rider in the morning to the final professional rider in the afternoon. We have organised everything you could possibly want to make your day special and the money we raise will go to Princess Alice Hospice and our hosts, Thames Ditton Cricket Club “.
