SURREY SCORCHERS VS LONDON LIONS / DECEMBER 8 / SURREY SPORTS PARK, GUILDFORD
Surrey Scorchers take on London Lions in the British Basketball League for their only December home fixture. With what is becoming quite the ladder to climb in the league table, Scorchers require some much-needed points to add to their name, so Coach Creon will be hoping his players can bring the fire and tame the high flying Lions.

5K SANTA RUN / DECEMBER 9 / DENBIES WINE ESTATE, DORKING
Santa works off some of last year’s mince pies in this 5km dash around Denbies Wine Estate. But wait – he’s also invited his mates, who, incidentally, are so inspired by the great man that they all look like him! Watch on as hundreds of Santa’s enjoy a fun run against a backdrop of festive tunes and entertainment. Fancy taking part? Entry is £25, includes your own Santa suit.
