Kingston's musical deputy mayor joined a band performance at a summer fair aimed at raising funds for a Scouts group.

The event was hosted by 1st Old Malden Scout Group in Plough Green, in Malden Road, on June 9 and had activities such as teddy tombola, ‘Splat the Rat’, and wet sponge throwing.

The Deputy Mayor of Kingston, Cllr Olivia Boult, was pictured playing the flute, and was joined by the Kingston and Malden Scout and Guide Band on the day.

In a Facebook post on June 10, 1st Old Malden Scout Group said: “Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday’s fair such a success.

“As always it was great to bring 1OM and the local community together to create a wonderful atmosphere on the Green, and we couldn’t have done it without your help.

“Particular thanks must go to Duncan Stewart who leads the ‘fair team’ and works tirelessly to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.”

The day aimed to fundraise cash for the training of the group’s leaders, transport, communication and equipment.

Plough Green, while in Old Malden, sits at the edge of Worcester Park in south east Kingston.
