Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and Probate I thought I would write a little bit, this month, about CGT and Probate. Most people are aware of the potential for Inheritance Tax (IHT) on an Estate but are not aware of potential CGT charges. When someone dies and before Inheritances are handed out, a period passes, called the Administration Period. This is the time when the Executor is working at their hardest, preparing tax returns for HMRC and applying for the Grant of Probate. All the deceased’s assets are sitting and waiting to be collected in. However, during that time, such assets may be growing. E.G. shares may be increasing in value or if house prices are rising, a property could be too. As these assets are being held by ‘The Estate’ and not an individual, if they grow too much, the growth can be subject to CGT. In all cases with a house to sell, a CGT return must be done to HMRC. CGT is not payable when you sell your own private residence, but it may have to be paid when a house is sold under a Grant of Probate when someone dies. This Tax is paid on the increase in value of the property from the date of the death of the owner, until the date it is sold. There are some reliefs available, but these must be claimed. Probate is a complicated and lengthy process and is sometimes better left to the Professionals! Please contact Catherine Sawbridge on 01372 741418 or wills@shortlandsawbridge.co.uk if you would like help with any Probate issues.

HOW CAN COUNSELLING HELP ME? Just ‘get on with it’? I don’t know about you, but I was brought up not to talk about my problems to anyone, you just ‘got on with it’. Fortunately, times have changed and even soaps now have characters dealing with difficulties. In Coronation Street it’s been depression, in Emmerdale it’s been HIV, while Radio Four’s The Archers had a huge response when they included a storyline about domestic abuse. In fact, these story-lines have led many people to seek help for their own problems. Thankfully, most of us are not facing such dramatic issues as these. But few people can say their life is all plain sailing. But where can you go for help? These days, you don’t have to be ‘crazy’ or ‘mentally ill’ to see a counsellor. Most people who come to see me for counselling are ordinary folks who’ve just found themselves going round and round with their problems, not knowing how to resolve things on their own. What is counselling? Counselling is one of the ‘talking therapies’ you may have heard about. It means talking about your worries and concerns with a trained and qualified counsellor for about an hour once a week. Counsellors are trained in a wide variety of theories and models of human development. But a counsellor’s role is not to ‘fix’ you or give you advice. Instead, they will develop a trusting relationship with you so that you can unravel your problems yourself. We often find ourselves repeating unhelpful behaviours without knowing why (we’ve all met someone who repeatedly goes for the same romantic type). Counselling can help uncover your motivations, beliefs and ideas that aren’t useful any more so that you can live a more fulfilled life. Everything you say is in complete confidence, and no one need know you are coming to counselling. Often people find just being able to talk freely without being judged is a real relief. How do you choose a counsellor? It’s important to find a counsellor you feel comfortable with. You can do an internet search, and there are various websites – one of the largest is Counselling Directory (https://www.counselling-directory.org.uk) – where you can find a huge array of counsellors in your area (including me!). So how do you choose? To be honest, there’s no great scientific theory to this; my suggestion is to draw up a list of factors that are important to you. Would you feel more comfortable talking to a woman or a man? Is distance an issue? What about cost? Does the counsellor specialise in the issues that you are experiencing? What’s important to you in a counsellor 16

– is it age, faith, ethnicity, etc? However, counsellors are trained to work with human distress in all its forms, so don’t get too hung up on all this. Go for someone you trust and feel comfortable talking to. One thing to check is that they are a member of a registered counselling body, such as the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) which is the one I belong to (all counsellors on the Counselling Directory website have to provide evidence of their membership and there are many other counselling bodies). Some counsellors will offer a reduced rate for a first session to see if you feel comfortable together. However, if you don’t think that counsellor is right for you, don’t feel afraid to say so. She or he won’t be offended, I promise you! They may even be able to suggest someone else – you are the client and your needs come first. Finally, you may think you can’t spare the time – or the money – for counselling. Or you may feel anxious or ashamed about talking to a stranger about your worries. There is no shame in creating a space in your life to ensure you’re living the happiest life you can. Life is for living – so live it! Barbara Riddell Therapeutic Counsellor, working in Chessington.

PLUCKY VETERANS GET UP CLOSE TO CREEPY CRAWLIES DURING VISIT FROM ZOO

Alec with the snake. Some weird and wonderful creatures from around the world found their way into The Royal Star & Garter Home in Surbiton following a visit from a special zoo. Exotic animals including a Brazilian black spider, a fully-grown Madagascan ground boa constrictor, and a meerkat were some of the star attractions when the Spirit of the Wild zoo visited the Home, which cares for ex-Servicemen and women living with disability or dementia, on 29 August. Residents were able to be up close and personal with the animals and insects, stroking and holding them, and in some cases, allowing them to rest on their heads. They were also shown giant stick insects, a parrot, lizards and chameleons, a barn owl, an African bull frog, tortoises and a hedgehog-like mammal called a tenrec. Ben Pugh spoke to residents and relatives about each animal, telling them about their habitat, diet and traits. The event was organised by Activities Manager Raquel Pena-Aristizabal. She said: “I made sure I kept well away from the spider, but the residents showed no fear and loved meeting all the wonderful animals and creepycrawlies. They had a great time!” Speaking afterwards, Ben said: “I loved it. It’s always such a pleasure to come here.”

Mayor of London backs campaign to build Surbiton’s first Man Shed for vulnerable men. A CROWDFUNDING campaign launched on Spacehive to create a Man Shed on Ditton Road in Surbiton has been successful. Campaigners had until 12th August to hit their target for the project, which had already won backing from the Mayor of London. Man Shed will reach out to men in the local community who are experiencing mental health issues or who are at risk of developing mental health issues due to social isolation and loneliness. The project is part of Crowdfund London the programme delivered by the Mayor of London and Spacehive aimed at backing Londoner’s ideas for improving their local area with funding and support. Suicide is the most common cause of death for men under 49 years in England and Wales and men are three times as likely to commit suicide as women. More than one in 10 men are lonely but would not admit it. The fact is that men are less likely to seek help for their mental health issues and are at more risk of social isolation than women. Developed by The Fircroft Trust, Man Shed will be a safe place where men will be at less risk of social isolation, where they can make friends, feel valued and reduce their risk of developing mental health issues. Men with existing mental health issues will have the support not just of other shedders but of our experienced mental health support. We hope some will gain the skills and experience needed to become volunteers themselves or to find paid employment should they seek it. Susannah Horwood of The Fircroft Trust said: “We are thrilled to have received so much support for Man Shed, proving beyond doubt there is a need for this valuable resource in our community” “Receiving a pledge from the Mayor of London is a game changer for us. This stamp of approval from Sadiq Khan and his team raises our profile and helps us reach a wider audience” Chris Gourlay, founder & CEO of Spacehive said: “It’s great to see the Mayor back such a wonderful idea that will clearly have a big impact on the community.” Now that funds have been secured a new floor will be put in the existing building, new work benches will be purchased, an outside decked work area will be built together with a new awning. 28

RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATIONS Chessington District Residents’ Association On the evening of Tuesday 16th July there was a second public meeting regarding the proposed development of the site currently occupied by the houses from 11 to 25 Leatherhead Road. It was held at the King Centre in the Fraser Chapel room, which was booked for an hour and was full, including some councillors. After a presentation by Grenville Herrald, the architect, questions were answered by him together with Nick Montagnon, the development manager and Tom Ross of Ross Sloan, the property development company. The original proposal was to demolish these houses and replace them with 49 units being a mixture of flats and houses. An earlier meeting we had with them highlighted a concern over flats at each end of the site overlooking existing adjacent homes and they agreed to change them to houses bringing the total number of units down to 45. A list of questions was sent to the developer prior to the meeting. Over the course of the meeting, some of the questions were answered and many others were asked. No doubt there were other questions which could not be asked due to the lack of time. At the end of the meeting when everyone was leaving, there were one or two people having one to one conversations with the architect and developer. The purpose of the meeting was for the developer to listen to the residents and possibly adjust the design. However, the overall feeling was that the residents are not in favour of it. The developer said that there would be an application put forward probably in October. The councillors will be asking that the application comes to the Neighbourhood Committee for consultation. If the application is put forward in October then the next Neighbourhood Committee meeting when it can be considered would be on Tuesday 5th November at Chessington Methodist Church. At that time the residents can add to the report that goes to the Development Control Committee who will make the decision. The Neighbourhood Committee cannot vote on the application either way, only put forward the Residents’ comments. If the application is after October, then the next Neighbourhood meeting will be on Thursday 16th January 2020 at the Hook Centre. The present houses are homes that blend in with the surrounding houses as they were all built at the same time and so are an integral part of the character of Chessington. This development will be another nail in the coffin of Chessington, slowly changing its character while increasing the traffic and pollution on the already overloaded A243. Gardens are the communities’ green breathing space, safe places for children to play and havens for urban wildlife. The gardens of these houses being long and well developed are also able to hold large amounts of rainfall. Once they are gone and replaced by hard surfaces then the drains and sewage system will have even more to water to cope with. The residents of Bolton Close and part of Bolton Road whose gardens are behind this development would have probably bought their houses for the gardens which backed onto other gardens giving the effect of a large open area. They will have that free area reduced by half and replaced by monoliths of blocks of flats reducing the sky line and robbing them of the sunsets they can enjoy at present. Chessington is a suburban area of houses and bungalows and is the reason people choose to live here. If they wanted to live in an area with blocks of flats and no gardens, then they would have chosen elsewhere.

MALDEN RUSHETT RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION This morning I watched a Kestrel hovering over the field sizing up what he was going to catch for his breakfast. He is there most days just watching from the pylon wires where he has a really good view of everything going on. The hay has been cut, bundled up and brought in for the winter months so animals can be fed and kept well. Recently, four Red Kites put on a wonderful display of aerobatics that would have rivalled the Red Arrows while the combine harvester was travelling up and down the field. A sparrow Hawk going about his business, one minute here, next minute gone, a wonderful sight to behold and one we cannot afford to lose. During the summer holidays the A243 has been really busy and to make matters worse we had a burst water main by the Malden Rushett junction. Thames Water did their best to complete the repair work as quickly as possible but communication from them was very poor in the form of customer service and for the first few days we were left in the dark. Still nothing has been done by TFL to cut the overhanging bushes and trees from the A243 from The Star end of the village going North towards Chessington. The A243 is subsiding at the brow of Telegraph Hill making it dangerous especially for motorbikes and cyclists. I suppose that if this year’s bike race had been scheduled to use the A243 they may have repaired it. From what you read and hear it appears that there is a lot more crime in Chessington and around us. A lot of residents are worried we are becoming like the ‘inner city’ boroughs with so much trouble going on. Over the Bank Holiday weekend, our residents were subjected to a large group of people arriving at a venue in Malden Rushett, some of whom were extremely badly behaved. It is my understanding that these people arrived by invitation after booking the venue. Businesses were besieged resulting in the loss of revenue and goods for businesses that are already suffering. To some it could be the straw that broke the camel’s back. The MRRA has formally complained to the owners of the venue and have been ignored. Further complaints are being made to the owners of the land who lease the land to the business venue. We hope you had a really good summer and enjoyed the sunshine. Autumn is firmly on its way and our countryside will start to turn to shades of red and gold, how lucky are we.

COMMUNITY PAGES It’s a Partnership between your CCG – GP & YOU We All Have to Play Our Part in Keeping Us Healthy

National Screening Program for Cancer Cervical Screening This test is for women (or anyone with a cervix) aged 25-64. You will receive a letter in the post asking you to make an appointment here at the GP. If you think you should have received a letter but haven't, make sure to speak to your GP. Regular testing could save your life.

Breast Screening This test is for women aged 50-70. You will receive an appointment automatically for this test in the post. If you're aged 71 or over, your invite won't be automatically sent, but you can speak to your GP about arranging an appointment for you. It's important that women of all ages check their breasts and armpits regularly: that way, you can spot any changes quickly and report them to your GP.

Bowel Screening This test is for men and women aged 60-74. You will receive a home testing kit called a FOB or FIT kit every two years. If you are 75 or over, you can still be tested, but you will need to call 0800 707 6060 to order a kit. As we said it’s a Partnership and we all have a part to play in Keeping Us Healthy – Our CCG and GP’s do theirs, make sure we do our bit.

Your Vote Counted! The Restoration of Raynes Park WWI Memorial Group has received a cash boost of £2,000 from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. Thank you to all the Chessington Chat readers who voted for us back in June! The WWI memorial was erected in 1921 to honour the 97 men who gave their lives in the First World War. Over the years the names on the memorial have gradually been eroded and are no longer legible, the project team are working to raise funds for it to be restored and the names re-carved. Wendy Cannon, a volunteer from the restoration group, said ‘We think it is really important that the names of the men who lost their lives from the local area be fully restored so that we are able to recognise and appreciate the sacrifice that they made for another 100 years’.

Chessington Art Group Want to paint, wonder how to get started, don't despair, join our group. Beginner or Experienced all are welcome. We have a tutor to help and advise you.

Chessington & Hook Voluntary Care Scheme It is with sadness that we report that, after a very brave fight, our treasurer Lynn Staines sadly passed away on 14th July 2019. Lynn had been a volunteer with CHVCS for 17 years and had taken on the treasurer’s role when the previous treasurer had to give up. Lynn kept us all going with her enthusiasm and careful bookkeeping. She was excellent at recruiting new volunteers, was always cheerful, loved to chat and will be greatly missed as both a friend and a volunteer. We thank Roy and her family for all her help over the years. Lynn’s final stand for CHVCS was at Chessington Fun Day in May, pictured in the last ‘Chessington Chat’ sitting on her mobility scooter. Thank you Lynn. We are still looking for Volunteer Drivers. If you have time to spare and can help, please call our office on 020 8397 6298 (Mon-Fri 9.00 – 12.00). Our next events will be the AGM in early November and a clients’ social on 25th November. Sue Weymouth
