H o t F r ui t y h c n u P s a m t hris

Makes 4 glasses Ingredients Cranberry juice 4 cinnamon sticks 8 star anise Lemon Orange Method Slice the lemon and orange. Put four slices aside to garnish. Put all the ingredients into a pan and warm through, stirring well. Ladle into cups or warmed glasses (if poured directly into cold glasses they might crack). Make sure each glass gets a cinnamon stick. Decorate with the slices of lemon. Delicious and warming - perfect for Christmas!

Ingredients 175g soft unsalted butter 175g caster sugar 3 eggs 400g plain flour 75g cocoa powder 1 teaspoon salt 200g white chocolate Green writing icing Glace cherries 1 teaspoon baking powder Method Pre-heat the oven to 180C / Gas Mark 4. Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in to the bowl and mix in well to form a dough. Wrap the dough in cling-film and pop into the fridge for at least 1 hour. Roll out the dough to about 1/2 cm thick. Use a large circle cutter to cut 12 circles. Place on a lined or greased baking tray and bake for 12 minutes. The biscuits should be browning slightly but still spongy to touch. They will firm up as they cool. When the biscuits are cool, melt the white chocolate. Coat half of each biscuit in white chocolate. Trim the glace cherries into small pieces and put them on to each biscuit to form the holly berries. Use writing icing to draw on the holly leaves.

s a m t s i r h for C Reindeer Tree Decoration You will need:

Dark and light brown felt Needle and thread Ribbon (optional) Fabric glue Pair of wiggle eyes Red pompom Red fabric paint 2 lolly sticks Toy stuffing


Cut 2 pairs of antlers from dark brown felt. With a small running stitch sew the antlers together. Slip a lolly stick into each antler. Cut two light brown ovals for the ears. Fold in half and secure with a couple of stitches. Cut two face shapes from light brow n felt. If you plan on hanging the reindeer, cut a length of ribbon and slip the ends between the two felt faces so the ribbon hangs from the top of the head. Slip the antlers and ears between the two faces too. With a small running stitch sew the faces together, securing the ribbon, antlers and ears into place. Leave a gap with which to stuff the reindeer. Fill the reindeer with toy stuffing. Be careful not to overfill: it should sit fairly flattish. Sew the gap closed. Glue on the eyes and pompom nose. Finish by drawing on a mouth.

Pinecone Christmas Tree Craft

Candy Cane Heart Craft

You will need:

You will need:

A pinecone Green acrylic paint Small lid from a juice container Glue Sequins and glitter


2 candy canes Double sided sticky tape or glue Wide ribbon


Paint the pinecone green and leave to dry. Sit the cone onto a small plastic lid and glue in place. You might want to weight the lid first with a small lump of playdough or sticky tack. Decorate the tree with glitter glue and sequins.

Stick the ends of the candy canes together to form your heart shape. Tie a ribbon bow around the top of the heart. If you want to hang the heart, tie the ends of the bow together to make a loop. Or you can give the heart as a quick and easy gift.

Button Wreath You will need: Pipe cleaner Buttons Ribbon


Thread the pipe cleaner in and out through the two holes of each button, spacing the buttons as you go.

Bend into a circle, then twist the top of the circle together to secure the buttons in place. Tie a ribbon bow around the top on the wreath. That’s it, you are done - and your button wreath is ready to display! Tie another loop of ribbon or cord, or attach another piece of pipe cleaner as a loop, to hang it up if you wish.

Christmas is nearly here and it’s time to get out your party clothes and enjoy the festive season. You’ve spent the last few weeks Christmas shopping for presents and what seems to be enough food to feed the five thousand. You’ve lost count of the number of presents you’ve wrapped and cards that you’ve written. You’ve been making costumes for nativity plays and been a taxi service for the children. You’ve been tangled up in Christmas lights and decorated the house to look like a Winter wonderland... it’s now time for you to enjoy the festive season and do something for yourself. New Year’s Eve creeps up on all of us and before we know it we are celebrating the start of yet another year. We contemplate where the ENJOY YOURSELF AND last year has disappeared STAY IN SHAPE! and discuss our New Year’s CLASSES A AT THE resolutions, even though RIFLEMANS ARMS the majority of us have CHILKWELL ST., GLASTONBURY forgotten our resolutions from the previous year...but not this year...2013 is going 8PM:: BEGINNERS & IMPROVERS to be the year you stick to 9PM: LA RUEDA (The Cuban Wheel) yours.

Around 7 million people in the UK make New Year’s resolutions to improve their health, but sticking to it in the dark winter months can be particularly tough. However it’s worth remembering that just 15 minutes of exercise a day can increase life expectancy by up to 3 years! Exercise classes can also be a great way to get fit, make friends and have fun. There are so many exercise classes that you could try from Yoga and Pilates that help develop core strength and tone the body to Zumba and high impact aerobics that will really get you burning calories and toning all at the same time as shaking your stuff! Aerobic classes have some great health benefits. If you are thinking about dieting you should always consult with your GP before starting. If you have decided a diet is one of your New Year’s resolutions you could join a slimming club where you will be able to meet new people who are also experiencing the same challenge as you. A slimming club is a great way to ensure that you are following a healthy eating plan and at the same time you can share you successes and even your bad days with people who understand. Many slimming groups offer generous eating plans making slimming easier, which is good news if you have enjoyed numerous mince pies, chocolates and turkey curries over Christmas and are worried about being on a strict regime. With professional support and encouragement you will certainly shift those excess pounds.

Why shop locally? It is very important we support our high street traders by doing as much of our shopping as we possibly can locally. A lot of independent local traders and their businesses are beginning to die out, resulting in a large number of high street shops gradually closing down and being left boarded-up. By shopping locally you can make a difference to the livelihood of the traders and to the landscape of your local high street or town. Shopping locally is one of the best ways to build a stronger, more prosperous community. There are many reasons to support local, independent businesses in your community, including: 1. Protect Local Characters and Prosperity Your Community is unlike any other place in the world. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain local diversity and distinctive culture. 2. Community Well-Being Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes. 3. Local Decision Making Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions. 4. Keeping £ in the Local Economy Pounds spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as pounds spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more services through investment in neighborhood improvements and promoting community development. 5. Job and Wages Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits.

6. Public Benefits and Costs Local stores in town centres require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services. 7. Environmental Sustainability Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centres-which in turn are essential to reducing vehicle use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution. 8. Competition A marketplace of hundreds or thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term. 9. Product Diversity A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.

Allowing your children to have pets starting at an early age is a great way to teach them how to handle responsibility. More than this, children who grow up taking care of at least one pet tend to adopt a more caring attitude towards animals and other people. It is easy to see why having pets around is an important part of raising children.
