Thames Ditton Supporter Hub
Following on from the success of last year’s Thames Ditton Supporters Hub where nearly £4,000 was raised, this fantastic event will be back again this year – only 2018 promises to be even bigger and better!
The Prudential RideLondon is an annual festival of cycling that starts at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, flows through the capital and into Surrey’s stunning countryside – this year taking place on Sunday 29th July. The very best place to see all the action and cheer on the riders is at the Thames Ditton Supporters Hub on Giggs Hill Green. Run by volunteers on behalf of the Community it will also help raise vital funds for Princess Alice Hospice, the Dylan Howell Trust and our hosts, Thames Ditton Cricket Club.
During the day there will be plenty of things to keep the whole family entertained. Radio Jackie will be providing the music whilst attractions include a Fun Fair, Beat the Goalie (Esher FC), Zorbing, sports events for the youngsters provided by Sport4Stars, face-painting and 2 live bands from Hinchley Wood – Stereotype and Living Things.
A wide range of refreshments will be available all day in the form of a licensed bar, tea/coffee/cakes, delicious BBQ, Bratwurst stall and ice cream whilst Bubble Brothers and Jim&Tonic provide the Prosecco and G&Ts.
Excitingly, the race organisers were so impressed with last year’s Hub that this year will see the addition of a giant TV screen like the ones used at the cycling events during the 2012 Olympics. This means that you can watch the professional race as it is broadcast – building up to the exhilarating moment when it passes along the Portsmouth Road.
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 and enjoy this hugely successful event. The Thames Ditton Supporters Hub will be a great place to watch the cyclists and will be open all day – from the first amateur riders at 09.00 in the morning to the professional riders at 17.00 in the afternoon. We have organised everything you could possibly want to make your day special with the money raised going to our local charity partners”.
