Our Members Networking Evenings are a monthly event where we invite our current members tocatch up on the happenings of the previous months business calendar. Running from 18:00 – 20:00, Members Networking Evenings are the perfect opportunity for an informal, relaxed gathering with members you already have relationships with and those you don’t.

We aim to source exciting venues for these evenings, which gives the host an opportunity to showcase their business as well as connect with people from our pool of members. This is just another way we try to support our member businesses. We like to include welcome drinks & canapés at these events, just to add a little something extra when networking.
 
We also welcome those who are not currently members to join us at this event. If you are thinking of joining us or would like to know more about what we do, then this is the perfect event for you. This is one of the few events that you will find the entire Chambers team – so whether you would like to know the added benefits of working with our International Trade department, the various marketing channels we use to promote our members or how your Membership Manager can connect you with 100s of businesses, book on now and find out.

 
For all our Networking Evenings we welcome and encourage businesses to bring along any of your literature or roll banners as we like to use these events as a great way for you to promote yourself to a group of Surrey Businesses.


 

This months venue: Silent Pool Distillers

Be welcomed to Silent Pool Distillers with a taste of their famous gin, a store voucher and a tour of their distillery
 

You wouldn’t be alone in wondering how a distillery nestled deep in the woodlands of the Surrey Hills came into existence. It’s a story of two Surrey locals coming together to create a distillery where things are done properly.

In 2014, founders Ian McCulloch and James Shelbourne met in their local pub (where else?) and discussed the idea of setting up small, local distillery. Taking their inspiration from Scottish whisky distilleries, the two friends started out with a grand vision of making a truly sustainable distillery next to a fresh water source, producing handcrafted, artisan spirits using locally sourced ingredients. But first they needed the perfect location.

Most distilleries end up in grim locations or boring industrial estates. Where’s the fun in that? Ian and James wanted somewhere filled with history, a good story and plenty of provenance. After scouting many locations in the south of England, one day Ian happened upon Sherbourne Farm (a former cow barn and petting zoo) on the banks of the magical Silent Pool in the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
