Thu 23rd January - RSPB Talk
13 July 2019 to 14 March 2020 - The development of the English Country House
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Home Improvements, looks at the development of the English Country House over the past seven centuries. The exhibition also details the history of some of the local power houses in the Borough of Runnymede
Commenting, Emma Warren, Curator of Chertsey Museum said:
“Mention ‘country houses’ to most people in this country and the chances are they will imagine something along the lines of Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs or Brideshead Revisited - the Victorian and Edwardian golden age of shooting parties and croquet on the lawn. The country house was more than a place of entertainment; it was a symbol of power, a tangible display of strength, wealth and importance”.
Among the properties featured in the exhibition are Sayes Court in Addlestone, Botleys Park in Chertsey, Great Fosters in Egham, Almers Priory in Lyne and Ottershaw Park in Ottershaw.
The exhibition will be on view until 14 March 2020.

Health and well-being in Spelthorne

To join the rides, you need:
- your own bike - this needs to be in good condition and well maintained
- a helmet is strongly recommended
- comfortable clothes and footwear
- a spare tube for the size to fit your bike
- a puncture repair outfit, including tyre levers and a pump is also recommended
Get active at 50+
Get Active 50+ provides sporting opportunities for those aged 50 and over to become more active. Sports include badminton, bowls, group exercise, jogging, table tennis, tennis, touch tennis, walking football, walking squash and Zumba. Details can be found at https://www.spelthorne.gov.uk/getactive or contact Leisure Services on 01784 446433.
Walking for Health
Spelthorne Walking for Health Scheme aims to improve health and fitness of local people, especially those who are not physically active and want to become more active. A short registration form must be completed before your first walk (contact your GP before starting to walk if you have a health condition), to receive a form by post contact Leisure Services on 01784 446433 and bring it along to your first walk to hand to a walk leader. Please bring any medication you may need with you (eg inhalers) and let us know if there are any changes to your health. Wear comfortable shoes with good grip and support and loose fitting clothing, as this will allow you to move freely. Long trousers are recommended in case of nettles/thistles. Bring waterproof clothing in case of rain. Please note our walks are for adults only. If there is a café or pub nearby, leaders and walkers often stop for a drink and a chat after the walk. More details can be found on https://www.spelthorne.gov.uk/walkingforhealth

Meals on Wheels
People of all ages, who find it difficult or impossible to prepare a daily meal can benefit from Meals on Wheels. At least one hot, nutritious meal a day is very important for healthy living. Spelthorne Meal on Wheels will deliver a hot, tasty and nutritious meal for up to seven days a week straight to your home between 11.30am and 2pm (weekend and bank holiday service is provided only to those who are most in need).
Meals can be provided for short periods of time (eg in the event of illness or when somebody who normally provides a meal is on holiday) or can be provided on a long term basis.
Hot meals consist of a main course and pudding. There is a varied menu which includes vegetarian options; however special health and dietary requirements such as diabetes and soft diet meals are prioritised.
