In light of the recent government restrictions, plans to celebrate Surrey Day 2020 on Saturday May 2 with public events, activities and social gatherings have had to change

Instead, Surrey Day partners Visit Surrey, BBC Radio Surrey and Surrey Life magazine, are hoping to spread some positivity with a ‘virtual’ celebration instead.

During Surrey Day, we encourage you to turn to social media to:

- Post about the places you’re most looking forward to revisiting once this is over

- Share your favourite photos of Surrey through the seasons

- And spread good news stories about people doing amazing things to help your local community

Make sure to use the hashtag #SurreyDay and we will share as much positivity as possible!

From dawn to dusk on Surrey Day, BBC Radio Surrey will be using the airwaves to celebrate this amazing county, and Surrey Life magazine will still be dedicating its May issue to the people and places which make Surrey so great.

While you may not be able to experience Surrey in all its glory first hand at the moment, let’s light a virtual beacon of hope on Surrey Day so we can all look forward to getting out and about again for real soon.

Follow Surrey Day on Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
