The Residential Nil Rate Band Living where we do, we are all aware that house prices have increased dramatically in recent years. It means that families who have always considered themselves to be of ‘modest means’ are now being caught in the Inheritance Tax Net. Happily though, a new tax relief is available from 5th April 2017. Each individual, who has a residential home as part of their Estate, will be able to leave an additional £100K to family members tax free, this increases by £25K each year until 2020. The total relief available by 2020 will be £175K. This means that a married couple, by 2020, will be able to pass to their children £1 million tax free, (£325,000 nil rate band each + £175,000 residential home relief each) if their Estate includes a residential property. However, as with all things Tax Related, the rules are fairly complex and the process for claiming this relief can be daunting. Always ensure you take professional advice when dealing with such matters, we are always available to help. Catherine Sawbridge

ELECTRICIAN RELIABLE & PROMPT Chessington Police Safer Neighbourhood Team Update Welcome to my March ward update. As I write this Kingston has seen an increase in burglaries across many of the wards on the borough - fortunately the Chessington wards have not seen the level of increase in burglaries as other wards. However not wishing to be complacent in this regard I have put together a borough initiative to combat the rising burglaries - Operation Robinson. This is an operation utilising all the tactics available including neighbour-hood plain clothes officers in unmarked vehicles; high visibility patrols utilising traffic cars. In addition to this I have worked with Surrey Police and established some excellent links whereby I was successful in running a cross border operation utilising Surrey and Met officers working the boundary between the two forces. This is vitally important in preventing cross border burglaries by engaging with known subjects who are involved in burglary offences on both force areas. Since the last issue Chessington wards have been affected by moped enabled crime, another strand of Operation Robinson with joint partnership working was to deal with this crime. A positive outcome of this joint working resulted in two of your ward officers PC Douglas and PC CampionSmith identifying and arresting a subject who was responsible for some of the crimes. As a result of this arrest by your team the level of moped enabled crimes has fallen. Operation Robinson will continue along with high visibility patrols to maintain this reduction. With the support of the volunteer Police cadets they have been out canvassing for Neighbourhood Watch and I am pleased to say that this was very successful with now many more residents signed up. I am always looking for new members. Please get in touch if you are interested in joining a scheme or setting one up. The team have been actively engaging with all the local primary schools and their school panels so as to engage with the children and the schools. Patrols continue to be undertaken around the schools to prevent dangerous parking. Please be responsible and park or stop safely when you are collecting or dropping your child at school. Engagement continues with the well run school and friendly staff and children at Chessington Community College. There is a youth forum that is run by PC Elton and there are many events that the team will be involved with in the coming months such as fund raising and sporting events. You can contact the team on 0208 721 2001 this will be answered by a member of the team if we are on duty and will be diverted to 101 if we are off duty. You can E mail us Chessington.snt@met.police.uk. Follow us on Twitter @MPSChessington Simon Baxter Ward Sergeant: Chessington North and Chessington South.

RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATIONS Chessington District Residents’ Association TFL have advised that they intend to remove the barriers at the pedestrian crossings along the Hook Road, from the Ace of Spades to the Fircroft Trust plus some on the Bridge Road roundabout. Some of their reasons are:decluttering of unnecessary street furniture and a reduction of motorist visibility. One of our Councillors has been in extended communication with TFL as it is felt it will create an unsafe environment, particularly at the St Paul’s crossing, and they have agreed to put the work on hold subject to a meeting. All the barriers on the central islands will be removed from crossings at the Ace of Spades, opposite the park (near the Parish hall), outside St Paul’s school and the Fircroft Trust. Presumably the pedestrian lights were originally designed to be offset from each other on both carriageways and enclosed by barriers to prevent people/children from running straight across and risking being hit by a vehicle. If the barriers are removed then is also the safety? Whilst they cannot be called ‘safety barriers’ as they are not designed to stop vehicles, they can give a feeling of safety to pedestrians standing in the middle of two lanes of dual carriageway. They could also be the difference between someone being hit by a vehicle, or not. At Hook Parade there are no barriers on the central reservation as they were not replaced when the area was refurbished, but TFL are intending to remove 24M of safety railing on the southbound carriageway between the Elm Road junction and the pedestrian lights. The railing on the other side of the pedestrian lights will remain as will all the railings on the other side of the road. The drawing attached to the railing shows that a section of either 8M or 5M long approximately 10M from the corner of the Elm Road/A243 junction will remain. The next section of 24M is to be removed leaving a further 28M which will also remain. By removing the barrier, they could be leaving that area open to a potential accident from a vehicle mounting the pavement and either colliding with a parked car or a pedestrian. Quite some time ago, TFL removed railings between the A3 and the slip road at the bottom of Elmcroft Drive approaching the Ace of Spades roundabout – to remove ‘clutter’. One of our members advised TFL that this was a dangerous mistake as there was potential for an accident. Not long after, a car left the A3 went across the slip road and through the garden wall of the house on the corner. The barrier was not subsequently replaced. Our member continued to press TFL. Recently a car failed to turn left at the bottom of Elmcroft Drive to travel up the slip road and instead went straight on and into the side of a car approaching the Ace of Spades on the A3. If the car had not been stopped at this point, it could have continued into the middle or fast lane with more serious consequences.

MALDEN RUSHETT RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION Large building developers are pressuring our government to release greenbelt land for large housing estates. The government needs to build a great many more homes to house our growing population. As residents we must resist the building on greenbelt in order to maintain our health, sanity and wildlife. Whichever corner you sit in, no one can deny that should greenbelt be released for building new homes, we will all be a lot worse for it. We have very few green spaces left in the Kingston borough and we need to protect these for future generations. Our history is being destroyed with our once wonderful old market place in the centre of Kingston, now looking like toy town with all the character stripped out of it. The YMCA proposals for replacing St Mary’s Hall with a building topped with garish ‘cubes’ is totalling out of keeping with the most wonderful architecture of St Mary’s Church and un -surprisingly the residents living around there do not want it. The greenbelt land where once Chessington Golf Club resided is now to be turned into a football stadium if greedy developers get their way. Last evening (2nd Feb) it took me one and a half hours to drive from Leatherhead to my home in Malden Rushett as the M25, A243 and surrounding roads were gridlocked. This is not unusual as it happens frequently around this area. During the rush hour the A243 from junction 9 of the M25 into Malden Rushett, Chessington and onwards is at a standstill due to the overload of traffic. Malden Rushett road junction is finding it difficult to cope with the further onslaught of traffic coming from the new developments in Epsom making their way to other major roads, and more development in that area will make things worse.

Professional Toe Nail cutting service for those who find it difficult to cut their own nails. Professionally trained, enhanced CRB certificate. Cut & file of all types of nails from straight forward to more complex. Treatment of hard skin & a foot cream /massage provided. I can visit you at home or in a residential centre. Price £25 per visit, discounts available if more then one person in the same house hold e.g. Husband & Wife.

Please contact Julie on: 07932 510855

We have now been told that it is possible that our only bus, the 465 service running from Kingston to Dorking, may well terminate in Leatherhead due to cutbacks in subsidy by Surrey County Council. Should this happen, there will be no bus service from Leatherhead, through Mickleham to Dorking for Kingston borough residents who either work or go to school in that area. This will of course put more traffic on the already overloaded roads. What will happen to the wildlife inhabiting these much sort after greenbelt areas, does anyone in authority consider their plight or care? I cannot think what it might be like not to see the deer, badgers, kestrels, buzzards and all the other wild animals and garden birds in and around us for the sake of progress, when we have so much other land that could be used for building. What about the infrastructure, where is it, we all know that it will be the last thing that is considered for residents, as once the developers get their way, any promises they make will be broken as in the past. For many years we have been told we are to get a relief road taking traffic away from Malden Rushett and surrounding areas, well where is it? Reports of more houses being burgled in Chessington, means more residents having the possessions they have worked so hard for stolen to be sold for next to nothing by the low life operating in this area.

COMMUNITY PAGES An ‘Eggcellent’ day out for the whole family The Children's Trust Easter Fair

To Spring By Rod Romero

The ever-popular Easter Fair at The Children’s Trust in Tadworth is back on Saturday 15 April. Taking place between 12 – 4pm at Tadworth Court with a new and improved Easter egg hunt, shopping market and enough chocolate eggs to feed the whole of Surrey, it is a day not to be missed.

As winter moves from out the year And spring lays down its claim Butchers Broom and Violet Are now in bloom again New leaves and buds begin to form On lichen laden bough Sun is shining through the trees And birds are nesting now

Last year the event raised more than £8,000 for The Children's Trust, the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury. It is hoped that this year the total will be beaten with all of the fantastic attractions and games available for the children and families who attend.

Snowdrops ‘round the borders’ edge Their fragrance in the air Apple blossom pink and white Say to the frost, ‘don’t dare’

Along with the much-loved Easter egg hunt there will be an Easter shopping market, farm animals, fairground rides, classic games and much more.

Sleepy hedgehog looking out From its Autumn nest Should go out to get some grub Now I’ve had my rest

FREE entry for children (under 16) and just £3 for adults. Tickets can be pre-booked on-line at www.thechildrenstrust.org.uk/ easterfair where places can also be reserved for the popular Easter egg hunt.

Hellebore and daffodil Each cast admiring glances Tulips are for later on They will take no chances Down beside the garden shed Herb Robert thinks it might Wait awhile, another month To set its blossom bright And when I look upon my lawn And see the daisies there They were there a month ago For seasons they don’t care As I discard my winter coat To warmer days react And moving forward with the year To Spring I now contract

WWF’s Earth Hour is an annual global celebration where people switch off their lights for one hour to show that they care about the future of our planet. This year will mark the 10 year anniversary of Earth Hour, and will take place on Saturday 25th March from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. Earth Hour is the world’s largest demonstration of support for action on climate change. Each year, millions of people around the world come together to call for action to protect our brilliant planet. Since it first started in Sydney, Australia in 2007 the event has spread around the world, with a record 178 countries taking part in 2016. Iconic landmarks across the UK switched off their lights, from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, to Brighton Pier and Edinburgh Castle, joining the millions of Earth Hour celebrations. With our new Prime Minister announcing that she is still committed to keeping climate action a priority, it’s now more important than ever to show your support for action on climate change. We can’t afford to let progress on fighting climate change slow down. Sign up today to be part of WWFs Earth Hour and show our government that we need to protect our planet. Simon Jakeman BEM Earth Hour Ambassador

Chessington and Hook Voluntary Care Scheme THE MONTH OF MARCH 2017

A WINDY TIME PERHAPS ?

The year is going so fast that I have little time to put an article together!! Since bringing you our latest offer of a visit or a sit with situation, we find ourselves in the third month of the year. At a recent Meeting of Committee a number of dates were put together for our popular Outings and Socials. These would be as the previous year for both Clients and for Volunteers. These dates will be sent to all those who indicated they would like to attend such organise events. As always we advise you to get in early to the Office. However let me give you them now so that you can plan accordingly in your calendar. Client events will be on Mondays on 27th March, 26th June, 11th September and 27th November. Volunteers have an AGM on 1th3 November and a Social on 18th January 2018. A Summer get together is being considered.

Shirley Hill

I gave you the sad news of the passing of our volunteer Shirley Hill in the last Chessington Chat, a really good friend in our Scheme. Over a number of years Shirley helped in many ways but for a good period she looked after the Office at the Hook Centre. She was an asset as a gardener for Care. She had for me a very dry sense of humour and a wonderful smile. This was last seen by me as she entered the Hospital lift on a stretcher, as I left it. I looked and she looked and I recognised it was Shirley. She was so glad I had seen her and that smile beamed out across her face. Now we have received a generous gift in her memory showing how she was appreciated and loved in her life by friends and family. Thank you Shirley for having known you for those few years.

Over the last weeks we have had several ladies in the recruitment stages and hopefully as this goes to print they will have been issued with their ID. Where are all the men in Chessington? It would be good to have some big strong males on board especially with more of our Clients needing to take wheelchairs to their appointments. Should any big strong men feel inclined to enquire the Office is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 12 noon on 8397 6298. Is it an early Easter? David Rowbotham HOOK & CHESSINGTON WI Your local Women's Institute group meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month, except August, at 7.30pm at Hook & Southborough Hall, 224 Hook Road, KT9 1PL. Apart from our monthly meetings the group has coffee and lunch club dates, afternoon and evening book clubs, a ten pin bowling group, museum and theatre trips and garden visits. Future meeting dates: 9 March - Votes for Women - Joan Cottle 13 April - Learn about Tinnitus - Pat Hunt For further information please contact Sharon Cook 020 8391 0723
