Sun 8th July - Sponsored Walk to help people face Cancer with Confidence
Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) is the only cancer support charity specifically set up to help people manage the visible side effects of their cancer treatment. Their annual walking event, SWALK, takes place on Sunday 8th July at Denbies and money raised will help to expand their services across the South East.
Taking part in SWALK is the perfect way to discover the lush green hills and picturesque views that the Surrey countryside has to offer. There will be the option of a 5K route and a 10K, both of which will take you through the acres of Denbies vineyards and undulating walking paths.
On the day, whether you are walking with friends, colleagues or if you are walking on your own you won’t be alone, hundreds of other people will also be walking alongside you, raising a flag for Look Good Feel Better and raising as much as they can to help fund even more Workshop
With 360,000 people newly diagnosed every year in the UK, demand for Look Good Feel Better’s confidence boosting services is greater than ever.
As you cross the finishing line, the LGFB team will be there to handover a lovely SWALK bag full of goodies – supplied by the sponsors and corporate partners of LGFB.
Afterwards, there will be live music and entertainment for everyone to enjoy. Having likely worked up a bit of an appetite,
you can indulge in delicious refreshments in Denbies courtyard and gardens – the perfect al-fresco experience.

Now until 13 October - The Rivers of Runnymede Exhibition
Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede - 24 March to 13 October 2018
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Liquid History – The Rivers of Runnymede, takes a look at some of the Borough’s rivers; their history and their impact on the lives of those who live and work on them.
The Borough of Runnymede has a number of rivers, including the Chertsey and Addlestone Bourne, the River Wey and the Abbey River, all of which flow into the Thames within the Borough’s boundaries. However, a quick glance at an old map makes one realise just how many other rivers, tributaries and water run-off ditches have been built over as the Borough’s towns have expanded to meet the demands of population growth.
The exhibition looks at ancient settlements and archaeological finds from the rivers; bridges and ferries; weirs, locks and mills; river industries and leisure pursuits. Some of the finds on display in the exhibition, or elsewhere in the Museum, include a replica of the bronze Chertsey Shield found in Abbey Meads in 1985, a magnificent 10th century Viking sword found in 1981 during gravel extraction at Mixham’s Pit, now part of Penton Hook Marina; a late Bronze Age (c.800-600 BC) socketed axe head cast in bronze and an Iron Age cauldron from about 500 BC, both found at the Charlton pit on the Shepperton Ranges.
Opening Hours: Tuesday-Friday 12.30 to 4.30, Saturday 11 to 4
