    From 9.30am each dayDorking URC, Dorking Christian Centre, & various destinations

    Dorking URC are really pleased to be hosting Holiday at Home again from 20th to 24th August 2018.  The theme this year for this very popular week of talks, activities, meals, excursions, and great company whilst still sleeping in the comfort of your own home, is Walk on the Wild SideIt will be a week packed with events to celebrate the amazing natural world around us.  Talks will include a chance to discover the wildlife in your own garden, hear about the hunt for an ancient desert in the Scottish Highlands, learn about the legacy of Elsa the ‘Born Free’ lioness, and take a butterfly walk up Box Hill without leaving your chair.

    The Main Hall at Dorking URC will become the ‘Hotel Lounge’ for the week, with coffee being served each morning and tea and cake each afternoon.  Jigsaws, art activities, films and other entertainments will be available, along with sofas and comfy chairs to sit and relax in.  Talks will take place in the Little Chapel, which is adjacent, and Dorking Christian Centre a short walk away will be the restaurant serving lunches each day.  Excursions include a trip to a wildlife centre and ‘rides on the wild side’ through the Surrey Hills, and along the Wey and Arun canal in coach and barge respectively.

    Many of the activities are free (though please still book so we will know the numbers) and there are very reasonable charges for meals and excursions (but please let us know if the cost of these is an issue).

    There is good disabled access at both Dorking URC and the Christian Centre.  Outings will require stepping up onto a coach and the brochure contains details about the accessibility at the destinations, which has been kept as easy as possible.

    Brochures and booking forms will be posted out to guests who have attended in the past, and can be downloaded using the links below.  Please share details of this event with anyone you think might be interested and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all.

    ********* IMPORTANT INFORMATION ***********

    Thursday 23rd August – Boat trip

    Unfortunately there is not enough water in the Wey and Arun Canal for our cruise to take place so we shall be going for a cruise on The River Thames instead – from Kingston to Richmond (and back).  The price of the excursion remains the same.  However THE TIMES HAVE ALTERED.  Departs from URC Hall 13.45 (1.45 p.m.) prompt, return to Dorking 18.15 (6.15 p.m.).  Cold drinks are available on the boat for purchase.  We will also serve cake during the cruise (included in the cost)
