Reigate welcomes Pride in Surrey

Roller skaters, dancers, costumes and fabulous outfits were all part of the Pride in Surrey parade through Reigate town centre on Saturday (9 September), the first time the annual event has come to the east of the county.

Emergency services, charities, councils, schools and companies, from across Surrey, were among those braving the unseasonably hot weather to take part in the procession from the town hall down the High Street to Priory Park.

There, in a ticketed area within the park, crowds enjoyed entertainment throughout the day, including performances from two stages.

Pride in Surrey (Opens in a new window) aims to celebrate, educate and connect the LGBTQ+ community and allies, with the first event held in Woking in 2019, then Godalming in 2021 and Camberley in 2022.

Many took to social media to share photos from the day - posts from the borough council and Reigate Business Guild are below. (Opens in a new window) (Opens in a new window)

Collision outside school in Linkfield Lane, Redhill

Police were called to Linkfield Lane, Redhill, outside St Joseph's Catholic School, on Friday morning (8 September) following reports of a collision between a silver Honda Jazz and three pedestrians.
