The only U.K. Sinatra production recommended by the Sinatra family’s Europe representative visits the Epsom Playhouse on Thursday, 21st November. Sinatra, Sequins & Swing: The Capitol Years Live! recreates the hits and Hollywood glamour of Frank Sinatra’s much-loved zenith at Capitol Records from 1953-61 with one of the U.K.’s most authentic ‘Sinatra impersonator’ vocalists plus a talented supporting cast that features the Capitol Orchestra. The show brings to life Sinatra’s famed Capitol years and its legendary songs, most notably those arranged by the superstar arrangers, Nelson Riddle and Billy May. See Frank Sinatra revisit famous scenes from his TV and film appearances like the ‘One For My Baby’ bar scene; the ‘Lady Is A Tramp’ nightclub scene from ‘Pal Joey’; ‘You’re Sensational’ from ‘High Society’ with Grace Kelly. The talent and charisma of the show’s two vocal stars – Kevin Fitzsimmons (the voice of Sinatra in TV advert with Hollywood film-star Naomi Watts, ITV’s Loose Women, E4 Made In Chelsea, BBC Don’t Tell The Bride & rave reviews nationwide) and the retro pin-up/ vocalist and former Miss Universe participant, Megan McConnell, has consistently mesmerised audiences worldwide. Sinatra, Sequins & Swing: The Capitol Years Live! is on at the Epsom Playhouse, Ashley Avenue, Epsom, KT18 5AL on Thursday, 21st November at 7.30pm. Tickets are £25 from 01372 742555 or www.epsomplayhouse.co.uk.

Alliance Healthcare UK Helps 50,000 Mothers and Children at Risk of Malnutrition. Five Alliance Healthcare employees raised £10,000 for Vitamin Angels by cycling 260 miles over four days from the company’s site in Leeds to the Support Centre office and service centre in Chessington. The cyclists’ journey was broken down with stops at some of the company sites, where local teams organised fundraising events to support the charity which included barbecues and cake sales. At the finish line in Chessington, the team was met by a cheering crowd of employees, Managing Director Julian Mount and the Vitamin Angels mascot, Angelique. Later in the day there was a celebratory barbecue and a range of fundraising activities, including tombola, health and beauty product sale, and a lucky dip. With just 20p Vitamin Angels can provide life-saving vitamins to mothers and children under five who are at risk of malnutrition, which is one of the causes of preventable child deaths. The donations from Alliance Healthcare employees will help the charity to provide this support. Andrew McMichael, Belfast Service Centre Manager, one of the cyclists from Alliance Healthcare UK, said: “I’m immensely proud to take part in this amazing event for an incredible cause. The support and well wishes we received kept us getting up in the morning and cycling on late into the evening, and with all the support we received during the challenge, I was almost sad when it was all over! Fantastic commitment from everyone taking part.” Katelyn Harbison from Vitamin Angels said: “This cycle challenge will help Vitamin Angels reach an additional 50,000 children with life changing nutritional support. We are so grateful to the cyclists and the entire Alliance Healthcare team for helping us break the cycle of malnutrition!” Alliance Healthcare thanks sponsor LCM and other sponsors for their generous donation which was instrumental to the success of the event.

Reserve your space for our Christmas issue now. December deadline: Monday 11th November with delivery over w/c 24th November.

RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATIONS MALDEN RUSHETT RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION Autumn has arrived with a blast of cold air to wake us all up after a very warm and humid summer. Now starts the sweeping up of leaves as the trees shed their foliage revealing the starkness of the winter ahead of us. Birds sweeping in and out of gardens looking for those extra peanuts and fat balls, and a grey squirrel taking the last strawberry from my hanging baskets and eating it whilst cocking a snoop at me through a window. Wildlife the very essence of our countryside and we are so lucky in Malden Rushett having two farms on our doorsteps to demonstrate to our children what farming is all about. Walks and cycling in Ashtead Woods with your children and dogs and a pint or two in The Star pub before going home for Sunday roast. As you leave Ashtead Woods to cross over to the Star pub you are obliged to cross over the A243 at the Surrey border. For a long time now we have been campaigning for a proper pedestrian crossing so that our residents and visitors to Malden Rushett can cross the A243 safely. Sadly, it is falling on deaf ears both by Surrey County Council and Transport for London who are the responsible body. At the moment all that is there to enable you to cross is a very small island in the middle of the road, not big enough to take one person let along a family with children, pushchairs and pets. The speed limit is 40 miles per hour, quite ridiculous and very dangerous especially at night. We have warned these authorities and Kingston Council of how dangerous crossing the A243 is at this point but up until now no pedestrian crossing has materialised, yet they seem to spring up at the drop of a hat in the main part of Chessington, in fact several crossings are situated within a short distance of each other in places along the A243. Concerns are growing about the speed limits being ignored in Fairoak Lane, particularly with traffic approaching the junction from Oxshott. We have raised this with both RBK and TFL on many occasions as they have what appears to be joint responsibility for the road. The junction cries out for dedicated right hand turns for both Rushett Lane and Fairoak Lane as the light sequence at the junction is so quick you are lucky to get two cars through at a time and motorists are jumping the lights. Accidents and near misses are an everyday occurrence. The A243 on Telegraph Hill is subsiding, it is dangerous particularly for motorbikes and cyclists. Again TFL informed time and time again. Undergrowth growing on the A243 so vehicles are being scratched and damaged, who is responsible for cutting it back, no one will admit to it, no one will do it. I would like to remind all those in authority and some who are unelected, that the MRRA is very aware of RBK and the Mayor of London’s messages. Our message back is very simple - do you really want to destroy our wonderful countryside and wildlife? Brown sites abound, properties are left empty for years, seek to find out who are responsible for these. Empty and abandoned potential building sites abound in London, use these sites before destroying everything else. You may remember in last month’s Chessington Chat I wrote about the problems we had with bad behaviour when a large group of people arrived in Malden Rushett over the Bank holiday upsetting our local businesses and residents. It would appear that the leaseholders of the site where this ‘event’ was held were in breach of the lease agreement with the owners of the land. According to the landowner’s agent this has been discussed with the leaseholders and they have been made aware of the terms of their lease should they consider holding others events of the same nature. Consideration for those around you goes a long way to foster good relations with neighbours. Recently I heard Boris Johnson announce that Epsom & St Helier are to get a new hospital, wonderful news, but is it good news for residents of Malden Rushett? Unlike other parts of the borough we have no direct transport links to either Kingston Hospital or Epsom Hospital and this is particularly bad and inconvenient for elderly residents who do not have their own transport. When is Malden Rushett going to be treated with the same respect as other parts of the Kingston Borough, why are we always the poor relation? The MRRA posts news on our Malden Rushett Residents Facebook page to keep our residents informed. Please take a look on http://fb/me/MaldenRushettResidents/Association. Beryl Gibson. Chairman MRRA.

Chessington District Residents’ Association Those who travel down Jubilee Way towards Tolworth will have seen the new Lidl headquarters rising out of the ground. Whilst they provided scaled drawings in the planning stage for the public to view, and have always been open and above board regarding the size and number of people who will eventually work there, it is not until you see it being built that you realise just how large it will be. Their current headquarters in Wimbledon consists of a number of buildings in different locations so this building will bring them all together under one roof. They have designed their car parking for a greater number than they are officially required to have. Their staff number of about 450 will increase over the years to about 700 thereby giving local residents the opportunity of employment. They realise such a large number of people entering and leaving the site in the mornings and evenings is a potential problem in Jubilee Way so they will have a flexible start and finish time which will hopefully alleviate it. Some people will be coming by train or by bus, as they already do at Wimbledon. However, there is bound to be increased traffic congestion in the surrounding area. Instead of turning left onto Jubilee Way, some employees may well turn right towards Chessington in an attempt to find a less busy route. At a recent South of the Borough Neighbourhood meeting, representatives of TfL were there and, among other things, gave a proposal to reduce the congestion at the Tolworth roundabout. They acknowledged that with the building of Lidl’s headquarters, the existing Premier Inn and the eventual 900 units on the old Tesco site, there will be an increase in traffic. They said it would not solve the problem but be a small improvement and would be put out for consultation. Their suggestion is to fill in the subway by the bowling alley and create another lane turning left to give traffic access to the A3. They would also provide a road-level pedestrian crossing to replace the subway. A member of the audience commented that being someone who is partially sighted, he feels safer using the subways than using the pedestrian lights as the sun can sometimes obscure the lights. This additional lane would not be very long, maybe half a dozen cars, so would not seem be a very effective solution for the cost to create it. It would seem that TfL are clutching at straws for a solution. In their defence, however, there is no obvious answer as the roundabout is probably working at maximum capacity.

Georgie Georgie is a pretty, gentle, grey & white long-haired female aged 10. She needs to be an indooronly cat, in a quiet home, no other pets and with someone around for a good part of the day; ideally someone who is an experienced cat owner to help her gain in confidence and feel secure. She loves to be stroked and brushed – which is great because she needs to be brushed every day. She also enjoys playing with a fishing-rod type toy, with catnip toys and using a scratch post. She is in care because her owner was no longer able to take care of her. She has been checked by the vet and is now ready for homing. If you feel you can give Georgie her well deserved forever home please call 0345 260 1387 Epsom Ewell & District Branch
