Weybridge worker completes charity challenges

Screen Shot 2016-11-14 at 15.05.25

Kraig Seymour bravely took on his second charity challenge - a 10,000 foot skydive - to raise money for local children’s charity Shooting Star Chase.

Kraig, 28 from Mitcham in Surrey who works in Weybridge, has now completed two jaw-dropping charity challenges in aid of the Surrey-based hospice charity. Firstly, Kraig braved a 100 metre abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, stating “it looks much higher when you’re stood underneath it!”

Kraig’s next challenge was a hair-raising 10,000-foot sky dive at the GOSkydive centre in Salisbury, in October!

Being a father to Noah, 2 and Willow, 1, Kraig chose to fundraise for Shooting Star Chase - a leading children’s hospice charity that cares for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.

The father of two, who completed the challenges as part of the new Weybridge Champion Timber branch opening, can still be sponsored in-branch and online at www.justgiving.com

Kraig says: “The sky dive was the craziest thing I think I’ve ever done. I was really excited to begin with but this soon turned to nerves as the plane went higher and higher! I’m so pleased that my partner and children could come to watch and support me – it meant I had to put a brave face on regardless. I’m determined to hit my £1,000 target so am keeping my Just Giving page open a little longer – please give whatever you can for this important charity!”

Iconic Double-Deckers will Flock to Brooklands for 60th Anniversary



26 June 2016

Dozens of London Transport’s iconic Routemaster buses will be marking the double-decker’s 60th anniversary at the London Bus Museum’s summer event on 26 June. Supported by the Routemaster Association, the event at Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey will feature live bus services and excursions, and the organisers hope to have every major variant of the Routemaster on display.

The first Routemaster bus entered service on Route 2 at Crystal Palace in February 1956 and the last was withdrawn from front-line service in December 2005. In all, 2,876 Routemasters were built of which, according to the Routemaster Association, 1,280 are still in existence. They can still be seen on the streets in London on Transport for London’s Heritage Route 15 between Tower Hill and Trafalgar Square and much further afield in various liveries and model variants.

Cobham Cougars U17 American Football team and the ACS International School

The new Cobham Cougars U17 American Football team hosts the third tournament in the British American Football league on Saturday 20th June, 1pm, at the ACS International School, Portsmouth Road, Cobham.

The Cobham Cougars are currently 3 & 3 - won three, lost three - two of those losses were by just a single score. The Cougars have been training together since March and are the only U17 youth team in the South West London area, taking in players from the Kingston, Weybridge, Leatherhead and Woking areas.

Sponsors Oxberry and Crestron invite local residents to visit the event and watch the new youth team in action. As massive in America as the Premier League is here, the National Football League is getting a following among teenagers in London partly due to the NFL games played at Wembley in September and October in recent years.
