Who am I? I thought I would start this year by actually introducing myself to you all. I have been writing this column now for many years and am pleased to say that I count many of the residents of Chessington and their families as my clients, and I continue to receive references and referrals from many of you to friends and family outside of this borough. Thank you so much for that. As you know I am Catherine Sawbridge and I have been writing Wills for 22 years now, initially along with my late father Edward Shortland, but since 2012 when he retired, I have worked alone. I offer a very personal service as I visit my clients at home and this has proved to be a winning formula. I have been a member of the Institute of Professional Will Writers for all of these 22 years, the last 14 years as a Fellow of the Institute. This means that I carry full Professional Indemnity Insurance to the value of £2 million for my work and I comply with the Institute’s Code of Practice. I am also approved by the Trading Standards Institute. So, as we begin a new year, I look forward to being of service to many more of you and I would like to thank my existing clients for their loyalty to Shortland & Sawbridge for these many years. Kind Regards. Catherine Sawbridge

RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATIONS Chessington District Residents’ Association Arrangements were made for four of our members to visit The Royal Star & Garter Homes in Surbiton where they met Andy Cole, the CEO, who told them about the home and gave a tour. The Royal Star & Garter is a home for ex-service people and their partners of our Armed Forces who require nursing and is a charity which relies on donations and also benefits from legacies. It is currently 95% full with 63 residents. The spacious rooms are single occupancy, allowing any couples who move into the Home together to have their own personal room. The average age has changed over the years. Originally it was 22 and now is 87. The building has been there for five years and was financed by the sale of the original home in Richmond. This has also allowed two other Homes to be built, one in Solihull and another in High Wycombe, due to open Autumn 2018. The poppy factory, which is an independent charity, is still in Richmond at the bottom of the hill. The 180 bed Richmond home, which is now a listed building, had become not fit for purpose. It was a maze of corridors, expensive to heat and was not wheelchair friendly. The new building has been designed and built to a high standard. From the outside it is pleasing to the eye and blends in with the surrounding houses. It has a sprinkler system and auto close doors. The ground floor has the reception, library, café/bar and dining rooms plus some residents’ rooms. In the dining room some of the tables are set with residents’ names, for those who prefer to sit with familiar people. The second floor is dedicated to those living with dementia and has 24 residents. The decoration is bright and the communal spaces are filled with sensory objects, making the area very visual. They work in the resident’s reality. On the outside of each room is a note of the occupant’s personal background as a reminder for the staff to help communicate with them. The top floor has further residents and an activity room. Here there is a reading area, craft and woodwork plus a physio room with an in-house team. Each floor has its own outside area with planting where they are able to sit. Whilst they have an underground car park it is not enough for all staff. Fortunately there is a good bus service passing the door with Surbiton station not far away. All rooms have a ‘front door’ with a number, the occupant’s name and a door knocker. Inside they are decorated to the occupant’s request. They have a track system fitted to the ceiling in case the resident needs to be lifted from their bed. This covers the room and also runs into the en-suite bathroom. Should a resident have a particular piece of furniture they wish to bring with them when they move in then they can, provided it is deemed to be safe. The concept is that this is not ‘a home’ but ‘their home’ and everything is done to achieve this. All the bedrooms have an outside view and the windows have a low sill so that from a wheelchair, the view is not obstructed – as had been in Richmond. They have one room dedicated to short-break care and they also provide end-of-life care. For security, all entry doors are fob controlled or have coded panels. They have a high nursing ratio, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, hair salon and a choir. In the summer they have a fete. They also have external visits to, for example, garden centres. In the grounds, they have their own garden to sit in which is peaceful and not overlooked. There is a doctor on call and a chiropodist on contract. The excellent quality of this small, self-contained community is due to the dedication of the staff at all levels whose priority is the care and wellbeing of the residents. We were all very impressed. It was a pleasure to see such a well-run and caring organisation. Chairman – Colin Punch – Tel. 020 8397 2659 – To receive a copy of our minutes contact us on e-mail 28

MALDEN RUSHETT RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, has again given his assurance that he is giving priority to building on brown sites. Although not everyone is in agreement with his housing policy it does give us residents some degree of assurance that he will protect the greenbelt. He has stated recently that his overall intention for London is to increase greenbelt areas to a much higher degree than is protected at the present time. In the Royal Borough of Kingston upon-Thames, with the exception of Richmond Park, the South of the Borough has the largest areas of greenbelt land. The old Chessington Golf Club site is greenbelt, and despite being under attack from developers who wish to build a football stadium complex, local residents’ opposition has so far, proved effective. Over development is a common problem in the borough, with more and more developers putting in planning applications for cramped schemes that you would not want to house your family pet in. Speculative developers are buying up greenbelt land in the hope that they can get around the greenbelt rules and regulations by claiming ‘special’ entitlement for their planning applications. The MRRA has recently been active in opposing the planning application for a residential mobile home on greenbelt land in Malden Rushett. This planning application was refused by Kingston Council planning and then by the Bristol Planning Inspectorate, who after due consideration of all the circumstances surrounding the application, also opposed it. The owner of the land then requested twice for leave to appeal to the High Court, and has been refused on both counts. The MRRA is very aware of greenbelt land that is under threat by developers in Malden Rushett and pledges to protect it for our residents and the wildlife it supports. The MRRA represents all our residents and listens to what is important to them and their way of life. We are engaging with Kingston Council and Kevin Davis, who is the Leader of Kingston council attended our AGM recently to take questions from our residents about concerns they have regarding the future planning of Malden Rushett. Our meeting was very well attended and as well as being informative was quite a social occasion and enjoyed by all. *The MRRA is not in any way associated with any other association operating with a similar name. The MRRA will continue to oppose any development on greenbelt land within the areas of Malden Rushett. The MRRA committee will work closely with RBK to ensure that all our residents and existing local business views are listened to. We will not dictate to local business where they should be and what they should do, we will only seek to assist and work with them on future plans that will be to the benefit of us all. Our infrastructure is a big problem; the A243 is constantly at a standstill, with Fairoak Lane and Rushett Lane following closely behind. Public transport is a big issue for residents with only one bus running through Malden Rushett making it difficult to travel. Speeding motorists are of big concern along Fairoak Lane and the law enforcement agencies need to address this before a fatality happens. Residents from the Star end of the village need a ‘proper’ pedestrian crossing across the A243 so that they can cross the road safely. The MRRA will give high priority to all resident’s concerns on these problem areas. We would like to thank Sally, the Editor of Chessington Chat, for allowing the MRRA a voice into the local community. We wish you all a very Happy New Year and an even better 2018.

GROWING UP IN A DIGITAL WORLD Online learning There are some really fun, educational sites and apps that might help to tear your child away from YouTube, including: Scratch ( helps you child learn basic coding. Users can create simple games, animations and stories. Like it or loathe it, we’re leaving in a digital age, and many children have learnt to swipe, scroll and select long before they’ve mastered riding a bike. Screen time If you’re worried that your child is spending too much time staring at a tablet or smartphone, you might need to agree a daily time allowance. Most devices come with parental controls that you can activate. Alternatively, you can download software such as Qustodio ( to restrict usage and block inappropriate content. Some flexibility on time limits might be needed, when your child has homework for instance, or you’re desperate for a lie-in. Apps such as Habyts ( allow you to offer extra screen time as a reward for chores and good behaviour. Teenagers need to learn how to manage their own time, and how to protect themselves online. So you may want to loosen the reins as your child gets older, and discuss what they should do if they stumble across anything that makes them feel uncomfortable. Social media and instant messaging One in five 13-18 year olds say they’ve been the victim of cyber bullying¹. However, social media can also be a way for your child to connect with their peers, and they may feel ostracised if they end up missing out on conversations. If you do decide to let your teen have their own social media account, set some boundaries. For example, you may decide that they can only have an account if you’re their ‘friend’, with the understanding that you won’t post photos of them or publicly embarrass them online. You’ll also need to talk to your child about why they should never share their address or personal details on social media, and what to do if they’re being bullied or harassed. Be aware that teens often set up separate social media accounts to chat to their friends, and will block you from finding them. And instant messaging apps are even harder to monitor. No safeguards you put in place will bypass the need to talk to your child about online safety. 32

Cbeebies ( has a huge number of online games, puzzles and other activities. The Alphablocks School Words Quiz, for example, helps pre-schoolers and reception-aged children learn to recognise simple words. You can organise games by their educational focus, such as maths, communicating and emotions. Comics in the Classroom ( are a range of digital comics that teach children about history. They support the Key Stage 3 and GCSE syllabus and are interactive – children have to identify correct answers to unlock more pages. Sand:box by SmellyMoo (search the Google Play store) is an android phone app that teaches older children about physics and chemistry. The user can ‘play’ with different materials and see how they react with each other. If you do let your child download any apps, check that they can’t make in app purchases without your approval, or you could be in for a nasty surprise.

It’s time to put another log on the fire, get cosy and snuggle up until winter is over. Our ideas will help ensure your fireplace looks as good as it makes you feel.

IMPROVE YOUR FIRESIDE DÉCOR  The fireplace wall is often the focal point of the

room, and can look amazing when treated as a feature wall, using either striking wallpaper or a paint colour that contrasts with, yet also complements, the colours used in the rest of the room.  Fireplace accessories can be quite distinctive

and are usually on display, so choose pieces, whether contemporary or traditional, that coordinate both with your room as a whole and with each other.  Above the fireplace, add either a work of art

or a mirror that is proportionate to the space. A mirror is very useful for reflecting light around the room, but don’t feel it has to be a traditional overmantel – something more contemporary may fit better with your style.  Think about what is displayed on your

mantelpiece. Photographs, candles, small ornaments and vases of flowers, collections… anything goes provided it fits. A formal, symmetrical arrangement is easy to achieve and suits a traditional room, or else something more freeform can be eye-catching and intriguing.  Not using your fireplace? It can still be a great

feature. Stack logs within it, prop up a framed picture, display a large ornament such as a shell, a piece of coral or antlers, set up a group of candles, or simply use the space for a display of flowers in a simple vase.


Refresh your fireplace, and the wall around it, with carefully chosen wallpaper or a fresh coat of paint. Walls: Dimpse No.277 Estate Emulsion, £43.50 for 2.5l; woodwork: Wevet No.273 Estate Eggshell, £24 for 750ml; fireplace: Mole’s Breath No.276 Estate Eggshell, £24 for 750ml; all Farrow & Ball. Perfect for kindling or newspapers, this hand-made leather bucket is made in a family co-operative in Rajasthan using natural dyes. It costs £89.95 from Decorator’s Notebook. Every ‘real’ fire needs a tool set. In wrought iron with an antiqued finish, this trio of poker, fork and grabbers will help you get the flames going on a chilly evening. Fireside tool set, £44.50, Garden Trading. If a rustic log basket isn’t your look, consider a minimal metal holder instead. Lodge round log carrier in steel, £57, Garden Trading.

Sturdy yet easily portable, this Scandinavian-designed fire screen is both smart and practical. Garden Trading Jutland fire screen in steel, £75, Black By Design. A reindeer hide is just the thing for throwing down in front of the fire. This extra-large one is a natural byproduct of the meat industries in Finland and Norway, and costs £170 from The French Bedroom Company.

The Life List All Above Board Few games can inspire family arguments and grudges like Monopoly. Maybe it’s all that pretend money or the main objective being to bankrupt all of your opponents. But my biggest issue is that the game is riddled with inaccuracies. To start with, it’s called Monopoly but there are dozens of versions. As well as the various locations, you can also get special editions for: Batman, Alice in Wonderland (go to jail and off with your head?), Formula One, Star Wars (take a Chance card you must…), FIFA World Cup, Pirates of the Caribbean (community treasure chest?), and even a Dinosaur Edition (I make no bones about it). Here are some of the other anomalies:  Even the traditional London version has Free Parking.

In London? I ask you!  Whoever heard of a bank error in your favour?  Everyone starts off with the same amount of money

and makes their fortune in the property game on a roll of the dice. No business plan, no building regs / planning permission and not even a licence for a skip.  The idea that anything can be insured for a £50 insurance premium.  Affordable utilities? In your dreams. Some elements are true to life though. It’s not unusual to visit a railway station and end up spending £200 for the privilege (seating optional!), and selling stock these days may well only net you around £50. They’ve even replaced some of the pieces, bringing in a T-Rex, a penguin and a metal ‘rubber’ duck. Is nothing sacred! By Derek Thompson

Metaphor By Rod Romero I wish I had my Jaguar An SS one point five Built in thirtyeight, it was Impressive on the drive I bought it from the boss at work Who said he had another He sold it on condition that I’d keep it under cover Alas the car was past it’s prime The coachwork was quite rusty The silver grey was flaking off Upholstery smelling musty It didn’t pass the MOT Some nuts and bolts were broken Boss said, Oh dear that’s a shame To the tester I have spoken And so we try to patch it up To give it one more year We’ll polish up the paintwork And lubricate the gear We took a trip around the block Although our fuel was low By twelve p.m. with petrol gone No further could we go And now our year with Jaguar Has gone for evermore Replaced with modern hybrid Straight off the showroom floor February deadline: Mon 8th January

We are a friendly group of over 50's who meet up on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am and 4pm at The King's Centre, Chessington. There is ample car parking space and we are also on the K4 bus route. Why not come along, as it is free for the first month, to see if you would enjoy the chat, tea coffee and biscuits, companionship, varied activities and outings that are arranged. Regular weekly activities are: Freestyle Art Group (Tuesdays), exercises, Bingo and board games. Other activities include: quizzes, crazy golf, curling and darts. We are always happy to listen to the ideas of our members if there is something you would like to do. All of the above activities are covered by a monthly membership fee of £7, which goes towards the cost of hiring the facility. Additionally, throughout the year, as well as our regular meetings at the Centre, we arrange several social outings. These can include; annual coach trip to seaside (free for members), boat trips, visits to garden centres, pub lunches, cream teas, ten pin bowling, visits to local attractions, shows and pantomime. These outings would be partially subsidised by the club but paid for separately by members. If you are interested please come along or for more information contact.......

A Happy New Year from everyone at CHESSINGTON and HOOK VOLUNTARY CARE SCHEME We do assure our Clients of first class service in 2018 with all our Volunteers ready to do their utmost in helping in our community. We now have a good number of men and women who are willing to help in many of the needs of today. The year ended with a meal at the King George Indoor Bowls Centre on December 4th. It was a good mix of everyone involved in our work. The meal was great and the service first class, our last occasion in the summer was far from that! Around sixty people gathered to celebrate Christmas with the biggest crackers I have ever seen. We were entertained by a singer of those songs we grew up with in our younger days. We would again thank all Clients who have helped us by their gifts on the day. We are grateful to the many drivers who helped transport to and from the Venue. Everyone who socialised with the Clients made for a great time. It is also so good to meet so many Clients I personally have helped in the past. Hopefully before long I will be back to help those Duty Officers find a driver.

As we enter the New Year already we have plans for another ‘Do’. This will be for our Volunteers New Year Social, as a thank you for all they have done during the past year. At present all we have is the date for the event which is on January 8th, a letter will be in the post or received by the time this is read. This will be for Volunteers only as a thank you for tasks done in 2017. On the recruiting front two more ladies are being enrolled as Drivers. The Services figures we had quoted at our AGM may well be higher in 2018. Just for the record we achieved 1900 jobs with these being mainly transporting Clients to and from assignments. At present we are out of Gardeners. (Sorry) We do have in our Office some USEFUL NUMBERS that we can pass on. Please do not hesitate to contact us Monday to Friday between 9am and 12noon on our Office number 8397 6298 We welcome your comments so give us a call. David Rowbotham

Hook and Chessington WI December saw us looking forward to Christmas. We joined together to celebrate with a Christmas meal at The Antoinette Hotel in Kingston. We all enjoyed the food and the games provided by Victoria, our social secretary, were fantastic fun. We then looked forward to playing one of them with our families over Christmas. The other game we played was probably not suitable for a family Christmas but it made us giggle like school girls! Our final meeting was on December 14th where we enjoyed the Nation’s Favourite Songs courtesy of Hedley Kay and a Christmas Buffet. Our next meeting will be on Thursday 11th January at 7.30pm when we will be holding a ‘Beetle Drive’. This is a first for us and should be good fun. If you would like to find out more about your local WI group we meet at 7.30pm on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Hook & Southborough Parish Hall, 224 Hook Road, KT9 1PL. If you require any further information please call Sharon Cook on 020 8391 0723

Malden Rushett Community 2018 is going to be a challenging year for the Royal Borough. The publication of the Draft London Plan at the beginning of December confirmed the Mayor's annual housing quota for the borough would increase substantially and that new developments, particularly around transport hubs, should have an increased density. Building 1364 new houses across the borough each year for the next ten years will be a challenge for RBK and we will know their solutions to this when the Issues and Options consultation for the new Local Plan takes place later in the year. One of the solutions being considered is to distribute the housing quota across the borough and it is likely that the Chessington Area Plan will have an annual quota in excess of 150. Strategic policies will determine how that figure can be achieved and there will also be a Design Code informing developers of the type of permissible developments. Malden Rushett will be part of the Chessington Area Plan, subject to the same suburban Design Code and expected to contribute to the annual target. Many residents in the village consider it semi-rural, not suburban and are also concerned that there will be no guarantee of the maximum number of houses that could be built by 2041. Over the last 100 years we have grown from around 30 houses to 162 and in order to protect the character of the village any future growth has to be properly managed. Clearly this cannot be achieved if Malden Rushett is part of the Chessington Area Plan. A Neighbourhood Plan provides the only solution: it allows us to have our own Design Code and to set a cap on the number of new houses built in the village until 2041. Everyone who lives or works in Malden Rushett is invited to contribute. Visit our website to have your say – http:// Andrew Watson
