Thousands of people celebrated Epsom and Ewell’s 75th anniversary on Sunday at an action-packed fun day.

The event, held at the Hook Road Arena, in Epsom, included entertainment throughout the day - with a fun fair, a parachute display, martial arts, a dog show, dance troops and more.

Ewell resident Paul Warner said the parachute display was "spectacular".

He said: "There were lots of people, lots of entertainment.  The parachuters made a spectacular entrance at about 3pm - coming from Kent, they were slightly delayed by Heathrow’s air traffic control. 

"Kids were playing on the fire engines and sounding the sirens.  I enjoyed it, my kids enjoyed it, there was a great atmosphere."

The event was organised by the Rotary Clubs of Epsom and Ewell, in partnership with the council, and any profits raised by the organisers were donated to charity.

Tony Axelrod, president of Epsom Rotary Club, said: "It was brilliant. 

"Thousands of people were there.  Families enjoyed it and the day was all about families and the community coming together."
