An Alternative Christmas Tree Festival


t. Michael’s Betchworth will be holding their second ‘Alternative’ Christmas Tree Festival on 25th and 26th of November. Twenty local clubs/organisations will each create an ‘Alternative’ Christmas Tree which will be displayed around church. Last year the winners were the church cleaners, their tree was made of mops and rubber gloves, jay clothes and dusters it was amazing. The Dolphin Pub produced a brilliant tree with beer kegs and bottles. As well as the twenty 3 foot trees that will be on display around the church, the whole village is getting together to make a 6’6” knitted tree. We are hoping that everyone who can, will knit an 8 inch square and these will be used to make the tree. This will be a true community project as everyone who has knitted a square will be part of our tree. After Christmas the squares will be made into blankets for charity.


Entry to the church is free but we will invite you to purchase a voting slip for £1 so that you can vote for your favourite tree. There is a challenge trophy for the winner. For another £1 can also guess the number of knitted squares it has taken to make our knitted tree. There will be a Christmas Cake as a prize for the correct guess or the one closest to it. Tea/coffee and home make cakes will be on sale too. With a Traidcraft stall selling Christmas gifts and goodies. On Sunday before the prize giving, there will be a very short joyful service of thanks and praise for all our exhibitors and visitors to St. Michael’s over the weekend. If you can, do come and visit us, where all can be assured of a very warm welcome! Saturday 10am-4pm Sunday 12noon (after service) – 4pm All profits go to St. Michael’s church funds

Designer’s Secrets Interior Designer Ruth Marshall on the latest trends in decor Interior Inspiration September is my favourite month in the interiors calendar. Trade shows abound, providing the perfect opportunity for designers to identify upcoming trends, so whilst I firmly believe that our homes should be our haven, filled with favourite pieces that reflect our history and personality, we can always tweak things by adding something fresh. Here are just a few of the trends I feel will feature in 2018 - I hope you like them as much as I do. Colours T h i s year’s colour palette is all about creating a sanctuary within our home, and whilst greys continue to be popular, there is a subtle move towards warmer neutrals and a braver use of colour on the walls. There are oodles of saturated jewel colours (with a nod to the 80’s) appearing in the new fabric collections that work brilliantly against darker walls, with rich reds, bold golds, teals and Klein blues capturing the mood of the moment. Bold as Brass To be honest I’m rather relieved to see a shift away from polished copper and nickel towards much softer aged brass, gold and bronze, with these warmer metals dominating many of the new lighting and furniture collections.


Fabrics & Pattern Ve l v e t continues to feature large in upholstery and always l o o k s stunning w h e n combined with other natural fabrics such as linens and wools. Many of the new fabric and wallpaper collections feature geometrics and bright, colourful blooms that will add interest and breathe life into any room. Easy Accessories Layering your fabrics and accessories is the key to cosying up this autumn – select a sumptuous velvet for your upholstery and layer up with cosy wool knit throws, adding cushions in soft linens, raw silks and faux furs to generate luxury and warmth. Create interesting displays by curating your much loved ornaments and mixing them with a few new additions – you will view them with a fresh eye. Houseplants are a big hit too so introduce a few to bring Mother Nature into your home, and don’t worry if you aren’t green fingered as there are lots of great faux plants out there to make like easier.

Legal Matters Solicitor Nicola Dudley issues warning following FCA’s call to turn lasting powers of attorney (LPAs) fully digital


ocal solicitor, Nicola Dudley from PWT Advice LLP issues warning following FCA’s call to turn lasting powers of attorney (LPAs) fully digital Proposals would remove the need for a physical ‘wet signature’ Solicitors say this could lead to a drastic increase in cases of financial abuse. Local solicitor Nicola Dudley from PWT Advice LLP has joined fellow members of Solicitors for the Elderly in warning against proposals to turn the LPA registration process fully digital. An LPA is a powerful legal document that allows a person to appoint trusted individuals to make important decisions about their finances and property on their behalf. Under the current process, a ‘wet signature’ – the physical signing of the document – is required by individuals who wish to register an LPA. But in a paper released within the last few weeks, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) called for a fully digital system, whereby documents could be registered completely online. Nicola Dudley said: ‘We are extremely concerned by the FCA’s push for fully digital powers of attorney. Although we welcome initiatives that make LPAs more accessible, the security of older and vulnerable people is paramount. Under the current system, the FCA’s vision of a secure, end-to-end digital LPA registration process is simply not possible. ‘Removing the requirement of a wet signature has the potential to put thousands of people at risk of fraud and financial abuse. An LPA requires the understanding and consent of the donor, but without the witnessing of a physical signature, what is to stop a


family member or friend registering a document on someone else’s behalf, perhaps even without their knowledge? ‘LPAs are extremely powerful and complex documents, and the prospect of being able to take control of someone else’s bank account and even their property with the few clicks of a button is frankly reckless.’ Solicitors for the Elderly is an independent, national organisation of over 1,500 lawyers, such as solicitors, barristers, and chartered legal executives, who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people and their families. Last year, the organisation released a report raising concerns around the current online system for LPAs, which it claims already leaves older and vulnerable people open to abuse. LPAs are processed by the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), a public body under the Ministry of Justice. The OPG has previously considered changing the LPA application process as part of a gradual move to take all its processes online. Next steps? If you would like to discuss Lasting Powers of Attorney, your Will, how to mitigate Inheritance Tax or obtain Probate and administer a deceased’s estate then please do not hesitate to contact Nicola Dudley at PWT Advice LLP on 0845 833 9025 or 07900 931478 PWT Advice LLP are a local, niche firm of Solicitors specialising in Inheritance Tax planning, Wills, Trusts, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney.

eat to be slim


In her regular column, weight loss guru Olivia Parry asks the question, does losing weight have anything to do with willpower?

o you really think losing weight has anything to do with willpower? And furthermore, do you continue trying to calorie count and eat like a rabbit in a vain attempt to lose weight? Remember, calorie counting has about a 98% failure rate, so don't waste your time! To lose weight easily, you need to look at the cause of why we all eat, and then sometimes overeat. Our bodies are ruled by hormones. Our hormones have slowly evolved over millions of years to control our actions. If our body needs to gain energy, the hormone ghrelin is released automatic ally. What happens next is a cascade of chemicals tells our brain to find food. But not just any kind of food – specifically carbs. When we've eaten enough, the hormone leptin is released. This then switches off the impact of ghrelin. These hormones evolved millions of years ago. In ancient times, food was scarce. If the body wasn't given sufficient food, death was a very real possibility. For this reason, when ghrelin is released, it is impossible to ignore it. Why? Because our bodies were


designed to react to it, and put it as a top priority over any other signal. When you try to use willpower, you are trying to overcome the body’s survival instinct. This can never work long-term, and only ends in failure and guilt. Our bodies react very strongly to ghrelin, so when it is released you feel hungry NOW... Leptin has a much weaker strength signal. So, the signal to switch off ghrelin can be missed by the body. Even worse, your body can become resistant to leptin. This means that the natural 'stop eating' signal isn't received at all. Gaining weight becomes almost inevitable. If you want a lasting solution, you need to work with your hormones. You need to understand what they are doing, and then use that to your advantage. Would you like a free guide on how to work with ghrelin, leptin and the hormones? These are the hormones which dominate your weight so you can lose weight quickly. And easily, without ever feeling deprived. Email me at or give me a call on 07702 779019.

Get Fit For Life!


PT Jade Simmons unravels the myths around body shape and type

o you want the perfect body? Do you really think that a change in the foods you eat, a new fitness plan, taking a special supplement will make you look like those people we see on the Internet? Bodies come in all shape and sizes. You are different, we all are. But a good diet and calorie balance with physical exercise will get you feeling and looking great. Added exercise and strength training is by far the best way to look and feel better. Three Main Body Types There are three general types of bodies. And within these classifications, people have different shapes and metabolisms, so even then, no two bodies are alike. The different types are: Ectomorphs: They are long and lean with little body fat and muscle bodies. They tend to have a hard time gaining weight. Examples include some fashion models as well as basketball players. Many people think this is the most desirable body type, yet women with ectomorph bodies often desire to be curvier. We’ve heard the health benefits of being leaner, but this group is actually at a higher risk for osteoporosis, and have minimal reserves if they become seriously ill, and so can quickly reach a state of under nutrition. Endomorphs: They usually have a lot more of body fat and muscle, and gain weight more easily. Can have a wide waist and a large bone structure. Endomorph can store fat easily. This is the group that is especially at risk for obesity and its complicating health factors such as high blood pressure and type II diabetes. Yet with a positive lifestyle, this group


can be healthy and fit – but will have rounder, curvier bodies. People with endomorphic bodies are likely to have strong bones, and fare better during catastrophic illness or times of famine. Mesomorphs: They tend to be athletic with strong bodies. They fall more in the middle in terms of size. Muscular and usually a solid torso, low fat levels, wide shoulders with a narrow waist. Mesomorphs are predisposed to build muscle but not store fat. So, remember: · Some bodies are better at burning energy for fuel. · Some bodies tend to store more energy as fat. · Some bodies are really good at building muscle and some aren’t. But there are no excuses. You can still be healthier and have the body best for you. Part of this is dedication and hard work to get where you want to be. So, the typical ‘I’m not over weight I'm big boned' or 'I was born this way' is not going to work. You weren't born with a cake in your hand. So, no excuses. Sorry! A Healthy Weight We’re only given one body so we should do our best to look after it. Be at a realistic and healthy weight for your body type. Increase the amount of physical exercise to help your body be at its best. If you need a little help or some motivation, feel free to get in touch. Or call Jade Simmons on 07564525351 or email: Legs, bums & tums, Friday 9.30am Church hall, Buckland Road, Lower Kingswood, KT20 7DN

One of the ways that I reduce the overload is by producing labels for my Christmas cards in about 5 minutes. I also help our customers by showing them how to do this too. Mail merge is a fantastic way of making this task so much more pleasurable and if you would like to know how, then come to a workshop that I will be running in November, which if you have a spread sheet and word processing package you will come away with a list you can go home and print.
