Thursday 28 November - RSPB North West Surrey November talk

"RSPB North West Surrey November talk - Birding in the Gambia and the Sine-Saloum Delta by Glenn Duggan
Thursday 28 November.
Gambia has always been a popular location for British birders and offers an easy opportunity to discover a fine selection of African birds. As well as the colourful Abyssinian roller there are barbets, bee eaters, weavers, turacos, and a host of other wonderful African specialities. Senegal is rather less well known but the Sine Saloum delta is a UNESCO world heritage site and holds a splendid variety of birds and mammals. Glenn is an experienced lecturer and an expert on this lovely part of West Africa. Why not come and enjoy his illustrated talk and escape dismal November by immersing yourself in the wildlife and landscapes of this sun drenched avian paradise.
Venue: St Charles Borromeo School Hall, Portmore Way, Weybridge, KT13 8JD
Time 19:45 - doors open 19:15.
Cost: Free to North West Surrey Group members, £3 for non-North West Surrey Local Group members.

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.
