The floods of early 2014 were the worst on record to hit Chertsey and surrounding areas since 1947. Homes and lives were ruined, but the community also rallied together and helped those in need. From neighbours helping their neighbours, to Thorpe Park taking in flood victims.
Designed to flood one side of Chertsey to save another, The Chertsey Sausage was deployed and kept in place for weeks. This, along with local and national press, radio and BBC coverage ensured that The Chertsey Sausage name was sent far and wide. Whilst there helping prepare sandbags, we had the idea of turning the The Chertsey Sausage into a real sausage that could be sold on a large scale.
