Another successful event for us this year was the Guildford Junior Citizen event. The VIP Day was Thursday, 4th July and the event dates were Monday 24th June to Tuesday 9th July 2019. Bushy Hill Junior School attended the VIP day. Over 1,000 Year 6 children (10-11 Year Olds) from local primary schools across the borough took part in a series of interactive safety workshops.
