Stagecoach Theatre Arts Hello once again, What a fantastic summer we had! I can’t remember the last time we had so much sunshine in one long stretch. It was wonderful to be able to get outside without the threat of rain looming overhead. In the coming dark and gloomy months we can honestly look back and say “well at least we had a good summer”. I’m sure all that sun has made the autumn colours even more vivid than normal as well - simply gorgeous. So, Christmas will soon be upon us once more. If you’re worried about keeping the kids entertained then why not have a look at our What’s on at Christmas section on the last three pages? Also don’t forget to enter our brilliant Bocketts Farm and Marwell Zoo competitions and you never know, you might be receiving family tickets through your door one day soon! Have a wonderful Autumn, a wonderful festive season and see you again in the Spring! Best wishes,

Cranial Osteopathy recognises that our body has the innate ability to heal itself. Stresses and strains from traumas such as accidents or a difficult birth can accumulate, impairing its structure and resulting in discomfort or pain. Osteopaths are trained to evaluate the cause of a problem and use their highly developed sense of touch to release and restore the body to an improved state of health and wellbeing. • Aches and Pains • Stress and Tension • Newborn Babies and Children • Back and Neck Pain • Arthritic and Joint Pain

Crafty Christmas Activities

The lead up to Christmas and the holidays themselves are obviously very exciting for all children, but still the cry "I'm bored" can ring out. Here are my 3 top tips to keep little ones entertained over the holidays:

Activity Advent Calendar - Instead of chocolate every day how about writing out an activity to do?It can be as simple as make a Lego snowman or Playdoh Christmas tree to more elaborate treats like go and see a pantomime.

Brilliant Box - There can be lots of lengthy meals over the festive period which can be pretty boring for small children, so start putting together a box with stickers, colouring sheets and small toys to produce when little ones get the fidgets. Crafty Cards - When it is time to take the cards down let your little ones get creative and make a winter collage with them. Just add cotton wool for snow.

Where learning’s a ball Little Kickers Guildford celebrate their 7th birthday! It is now 7 years since Paul Brooker gave up his corporate job to become a stay at home dad and launch Little Kickers Guildford. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength with classes in Guildford, Merrow, Fernhurst and Godalming. Paul says “I am really proud to be celebrating 7 years of running our classes, I have always said that the best advert for our classes are the classes themselves so if you have been thinking of joining a class come and have a free taster session first".

It doesn’t take much effort to make a large quantity of chicken casserole or a minced beef stew which can be put into small individual dishes that you can pull out of the freezer and then add some mash potato and fresh veggies to. This is the healthy way to introduce your child to different textures and tastes. You may also have food you have cooked for your husband or other children that can be mashed and used or reheated the next day to make a tasty lunch for your toddler. Macaroni cheese or cauli�lower cheese are other popular dishes that can be frozen into small portions. Fish cooks very quickly so you may prefer to cook this fresh rather than freeze a large batch unless it is a big �ish pie which you can turn into small portions. Apart from everything else convenience foods are expensive to buy, and if you progress further and start to buy readymade ‘meals’ for your child these are even more expensive. They may still get the same nutritional value from readymade meals but it does not beat home cooking where the child experiences different textures, colours, and the taste from proper food.

I am gob smacked by the number of mums today bringing their children up on convenient pouches like ‘Baby Plum,’ ‘Annabelle Karmel’, and ‘Ella’s Kitchen’ to name but a few. These convenience foods are great as a standby but what happened to proper food! They taste very bland and have no texture and children often get hooked on them as they are easier to eat than real foods. The manufacturers are ready to display their ‘organic’ ingredients and that they do not contain salt, food colourings, and other additives but what they don’t say is that they are running a business and need to sell their products to you!

Method: Pre-heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Line the base and ends of two greased small loaf tins with strips of baking parchment. Pour the hot tea into a mixing bowl with the malt, sugar and dried fruit. Stir well, then add the egg. Stir through prepared damsons. Tip in the flour, then quickly stir in the baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and pour into the prepared tins. Bake for about 50 minutes until firm and well risen. While still warm, brush with a little more malt to glaze and leave to cool. Remove from the tin, cool and wrap. Serve sliced and buttered.
