THE 20 foot long banner strung between two trees and advertising a charity event was just too much temptation for someone who passed Frimley Community Centre - they climbed up and stole it.
The £70 banner was advertising Surrey Heath Mayor Coun. Adrienne Neighbour's Fifties and Sixties rock night at Lakeside on September 25 in aid of her charity "Let's Swim".
Mrs Neighbour's charity aims to provide funds to complete a swimming facility at Carwarden House School in Upper Chobham Road, Camberley. It will be especially useful not only to children but to mothers and babies, the elderly and arthritis sufferers who want to swim.
The Mayor hopes far more local people will learn to swim during her year of office and she is planning a special award for those who do. A special swimming event is to be held at half term at the Arena Leisure Centre in Camberley.
"In recent years we have lost at least two children who were not able to swim whilst on holidays abroad," she said. And if you didn't see the poster it said that you could get tickets for the revival night from the Lakeside box office at just £7.50 each. The number to ring is 01252 836464.
