Friday 21st June - RPSB Evening Walk
If you mention the word “nightjar” to anyone interested in wildlife, the chances are they will immediately think of Bill Oddie jumping up and down waving a handkerchief in each hand!
On Friday 21 June, the RSPB North West Surrey Local Group is holding it’s annual nightjar walk on Chobham Common. There is an excellent chance of seeing nightjar as well as the possibility of woodcock. The walk starts from the Chobham Common Fish Pond car park in Gracious Pond Road at 8:00pm.
Handkerchiefs are optional but a torch is recommended for the walk back and insect repellent is strongly recommended. In the case of inclement weather, please check the website www.rspb.org.uk/groups/

4 April to 2 November - Chertsey Abbey: Re-imagined
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Chertsey Abbey: Re-imagined, will look at the history of Chertsey Abbey from its foundation in 666 to its dissolution in 1537. The exhibition will feature loans from The National Archive in Kew of abbey related documents which are rarely seen by the public.
Also on view will be a new 3D computer model showing how Chertsey Abbey may have looked in 1362 during its heyday. As well as a 2 minute “fly-over” film giving an overview of the model, there will be an animated abbey time line and two games on an abbey theme.
“In its 14th century heyday Chertsey Abbey was the fifth largest monastery in the country. However, over the decades since its dissolution in 1537 the building has gradually disappeared. This exhibition will give visitors to Chertsey Museum an appreciation of the town’s most famous building, which is no longer to be seen.”
Chertsey Abbey: Re-imagined will be on view from 4 April to 2 November 2019 in the temporary exhibition gallery at Chertsey Museum.
For further information, please contact Chertsey Museum’s Curator, Emma Warren, on 01932 575370
