Frimley Green Carnival 1977 – 1985 in video with music by Indie Through The Looking Glass
The Residents Network loves seeing all the photo and video content that does the rounds on local social media platforms. There are lots of nostalgia Facebook groups dedicated to the history of various villages and towns.
Today, we spotted a wonderful video posted to the Historic Frimley, Frimley Green, Camberley, Deepcut and Surrounding Areas Group of the Frimley Green Carnival 1977 – 1985.
The video is made extra special as the music soundtrack (Our Reward) is produced by local resident Jo Bartlett (Indie Through the Looking Glass).
She writes on her page:
A couple of years ago, my sister bought a DVD of the Frimley Green Carnival1977 – 1985, originally filmed on a Super 8 camera. I watched it and saw to my delight, brief footage of three of my brothers, but also lots of my Mum. She ran the local nursery school from the house where we lived and was the coach for the Nursery United football team! They used to play a match on the village green every summer.
I got it transferred onto mp4 last week and edited down 2 1/2 hours into 4 minutes. I also got permission from the Frimley Green Carnival to use if for my music. Thank you so much!
I had such a great time making this, I really hope you enjoy it.
It starts with my brother Sam, raising the Union Jack on the roof of our house for the 1977 carnival. I watched him from the roof, halfway up on the other side of the house and thought, ‘he’s going to fall’.”
Thanks to Jo for sharing this awesome piece of Surrey history.
