Editor’s Note

January/February 2015  The Edenbridge Directory

Dear Neighbours,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all enjoyed the festivities (or maybe you still are) and you’re now raring to go in 2015. As always, I’m writing my New Year Editor’s

Note before Christmas has even taken place and until this issue is put to bed only then can I think about preparing for Christmas myself. Having just come back from the Edenbridge Spectacular (organised by

the Eden Valley Chamber of Commerce) it has put me in the mood to start feeling festive and I really can’t wait.

Santa was very busy in his Grotto

Doctor Who theme this year

Into the Tardis I go

We were treated to another magnificent Bonfire Parade this year and despite the persistent rain there were still hoards of people out to

enjoy the spectacle. I do enjoy the traditions we have in the

Eden Valley and my friends from other places are always amazed at how much goes on here.

One of my personal successes last year was in my role as

Networking Coordinator for the Chamber of Commerce. There were around 25-50 local businesses attending the

events and the feedback I received was great and made it

Networking at Alexir Packaging

all worthwhile. I’m organising more events for this year and highly recommend any local businesses who are interested in coming along to one of these to get in touch with me.

I hope you enjoy this issue and I’m always happy to receive comments and suggestions from readers.

Without the readers this magazine wouldn’t exist

and I always appreciate all the support from everyone.

Don’t forget, there are many pages included in this magazine for the sole purpose of supporting the community. These pages are FREE to local groups and organisations to promote themselves, their events, put requests out etc.

All you need to do is get in touch with me by the relevant deadline (contact

details at the end). The copy deadlines for 2015 are:  March/April issue: 30th January  May/June issue: 2nd April

 July/August issue: 29th May

 September/October issue: 31st July

 November/December issue: 2nd October The prize crossword in the last issue generated the most amount of entries I think I’ve ever received for a crossword since I started the magazine in 2005. I had some feedback that the crossword

was easier than normal although I wouldn’t know as I’m really no good at crosswords at all.

Have a go at this issue’s prize

crossword and you will be in with a chance of winning some

fabulous metallic temporary tattoo’s from Streak, a business my

young, entrepreneurial cousin has recently launched.

I think they look very

elegant and stylish and soon everyone across the country will be ‘streaking’ when they go out! Well done Ella.

I hope you enjoy this issue and, as usual, don’t forget to mention The

Edenbridge Directory if you are responding to anything you’ve seen featured in this magazine as it helps secure it’s future. Happy 2015!

appearances - Transforming the way we look Pt 3 Here I am, back again in the comfortable home clinic of Gillian Huntley, an Aesthetic Therapist, to undergo some further treatments so I can give you a real insight into how they feel and what the process involves...

- the area that is generally oiler than the rest because more oil glands are located here - Gillian gave me some tips and tricks on what I can do to help myself to look after my skin better and what to use on it. She used one of her cleansers and demonstrated a lovely facial cleanse using her finger tips followed by removing the cleanser with two Gillian has been in the beauty industry for Gillian Huntley in her clinic sponges soaked in warm water. My skin felt very radiant after the over 25 years and has experience. specialised in Advanced Aesthetics for

over 15 of those. She works closely with highly recommended Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons, nurses, technicians and consultants and many salons and clinics in Kent and the South East as well as London Harley Street. While her main place of work is at her home clinic in Chiselhurst, she is often in the local area as she has close links to Options Beauty Salon in the High Street. She recently held an evening event there in order to demonstrate the techniques she uses during her treatments.

Each facial is tailored to her client’s individual skin needs and she’ll never give you the same facial twice. Gillian also provides you with product samples and sponges to take home in a goody bag. As you would expect, Gillian does have her preferred range of products - Image Skincare - which as well as being really good, it also includes an organic range and is completely free of the chemical preservative ‘parabens’. As well as facials Gillian also performs skin peels which can help with many different conditions such as acne, rosacea, pigmentation and orange peel skin. The products she uses encourage skin regeneration using the latest ‘stem cell’ technology.

There are many different types of treatments Gillian performs - skins peels, scar relaxation, specialist waxing, thread vein/pigmentation/ skin tag removals, Semi-Permanent make-up and medical tattooing and these treatments can really transform people’s lives and boost After my relaxing their confidence. facial had finished, I So far Gillian has removed clear moles from my waited patiently as face and neck, millia from around my eyes, skin Gillian prepared her electrolysis machine ready tags from my face, and given me beautiful semi- to attack my red veins or Telangiectasias, spider permanent eyeliner.

The Edenbridge Directory  January/February 2015

I had been getting used to having numbing cream applied to my skin before the previous treatments I’d had with Gillian but she explained that for this particular one, red vein removal, it wasn’t possible. This did make me feel a little nervous realising I didn’t have the protection of the numbing cream to reduce any potential pain I might feel during the process. The actual process works by heat from the electrolysis probe evaporating the vein in the same way the sun evaporates puddles. Well, I needn’t have worried, it wasn’t too painful at all and felt more like little prickling sensations on my skin. The only sensitive area for me was around the side of my nose and the tip of my nose particularly made me flinch but it didn’t take too long for Gillian to complete her work and we were done. The final part of the treatment involved cooling down my face and this was done by applying cool cotton pads making my skin feel much relieved as it was tingling. We then went over the aftercare routine, Gillian deposited the used probe in her ‘sharps bin’ to be disposed of professionally, and I left with my

goodie bag and also purchased cleanser and moisturiser as I was determined to start my new skin care routine (which I have been undertaking religiously nearly every day now). There wasn’t much to see immediately following the treatment other than redness but over the next few days I had little scabs forming in the areas that had been ‘zapped’. Gillian always makes sure that when I’m booking my appointments with her I don’t have any important engagements in the few days following as you do need to allow your skin to heal properly and for any swelling and redness to subside. Of course following the aftercare instructions is extremely important in ensuring that your skin will heal properly. To find out more about these or other treatments, or to book an appointment you can contact Gillian on 07711 067 789 or email appearances4u@me.com.

The friendly, local club for everyone in News update...

The Edenbridge Club has a well deserved makeover With it’s history dating back to the early 1900s, indeed like some of it’s previous décor, The Edenbridge Club (previously known as the Edenbridge Mens’ Club) has undergone some much needed refurbishment and now enters a new era, providing modern facilities and FREE WiFi for it’s members.

Following extensive stripping and plastering in the downstairs bar area, the club has a whole new feel when you walk through the door. GOODBYE old drab walls and HELLO to new, bright, open plan space. With membership currently just under 350, the popularity of the club is slowly building again as workers and residents in the area realise the value the club gives them. “We deliver what our members want as much as possible, and within reason of course”, says Club Treasurer David Putman, “there wouldn’t be a club without

the support of our members.”

If you haven’t been to the club for a while or are new to the area, you’ll be most welcome to take a look around and be pleasantly surprised at the facilities on offer here. The club are also able to obtain a late bar licence - great when big sporting events are showing on the big screen outside of normal opening hours. “We’re the only club in town with Big Gaming Machines which pay £250 and £500 jackpots,” says Club Secretary Derek Smith, “and our beer is the finest in town so our members tell us!” Membership to the club is only £10 per year / £5 for Senior Citizens. THE CLUB LOOKS FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU SOON! All renovations and decorating has been carried out by local company True Build

Edenbridge ‘Singing For Health’ Scheme 2015 Are you suffering from a chronic health problem? If so, group singing could help to relieve the symptoms, as well as reducing the stress and isolation that are often unwelcome side-effects of longterm illness. Thanks to a donation from the Great Stonebridge Trust, Eden Songsters are offering a limited number of subsidised places for this weekly drop-in, where you can enjoy singing in a friendly, supportive group. The warm-up exercises and group singing encourage deep breathing and help to control posture and movement, while creating a sense of wellbeing. There is no need to read music, as songs are learnt by ear, keeping the brain active. Recent studies by the Sidney De Haan Research Centre (Canterbury Christchurch University) have demonstrated the benefits of group singing for patients with a range of medical conditions, including Parkinson’s, dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and mental health problems. People suffering from heart disease, stroke and chronic pain have also reported improvements in their symptoms. The ‘Singing for Health’ scheme welcomes applications from anyone living in the Edenbride area. To take up this offer, simply complete the application form, giving a brief out-line of your health needs, along with a short statement of confirmation by your GP. You can pick up a form at the Edenbridge Medical Practice or the Eden Centre, or by writing to jacky.hintze@outlook.com. Closing date: 28th January 2015. Eden Songsters meet on Wednesdays, from 2.00 – 3.30 pm at the Eden Centre, Four Elms Road. Even if you don’t qualify for a health subsidy, you are welcome to come along and see what we get up to in our weekly drop-in; the first ‘taster’ session is free of charge.

Southern Oven Services love the jobs you hate

Oven cleaning... It’s not a job I particularly enjoy (I can’t remember the last time I did actually clean my oven) and I’ve never heard anyone I know speak with any fondness of this task...until now. Jeff Skilton of Southern Oven Services (SOS) takes much delight in his work and when he talks about the art of oven cleaning he does so with a passion. Jeff spent over 17 years as a milkman so is fully experienced in dealing with his customers direct. When Jeff and his partner Fiona moved to Edenbridge 5 years ago they realised there was room in the local market for an oven cleaning company and launched SOS nine months ago. Oven cleaning is not about scrubbing the oven with the latest brand of oven cleaning foam which can be quite potent. Jeff spent two months with a professional cleaner, attending jobs with him and really learning the trade inside and out. He was also keen to make sure he used all the latest in environmentally friendly products so there would be no chemical smells in your house after he’s finished his cleaning work. After each clean, Jeff runs a dry steamer over the oven so it doesn’t just sparkle but is germ free too and you can start using your oven straight away.

are soaked in a special heated dip tank which is in the back of the van. This process removes grease carbon and burnt on food. To ensure no mess is made while he’s working in your property, Jeff comes complete with shoe and carpet covers to every job. So what are the benefits of cleaning your oven regularly? Well, performance can be dramatically improved (depending on how much grime has been allowed to build up), food tastes better coming from a clean oven, and of course it reduces the risk of your oven becoming a fire hazard.

You can see from the pictures exactly what a difference SOS can make to a dirty oven, bringing it up like new. It’s not just the inside that is cleaned but the hobs and oven casing too. Other appliances that SOS clean are:  Extractors  Fridges  BBQs  Washing Machines

 AGAs  Freezers  Dishwashers

SOS have both domestic and commercial customers and can carry out contract work as well as one-off cleans. They are fully trained, equipped, certified and professional with their service delivery.

If you would like to find out more about the services on offer from SOS, call Jeff or Fiona on 01732 300 947, or visit their website at www. In order for an oven to be cleaned properly, it southernovenservices.co.uk is taken apart as much as possible and all the /SouthernOvenServices @sos_oven removable elements (glass, racks, trays etc.)

Aspray - Taking the hassle out of property insurance claims If you’re a property owner then I think you will be very interested in my new service, so I’m delighted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I am Mark Mitcheson and I’ve lived happily in the Edenbridge area for the last 25 years. I’m a project manager by profession and have worked with a range of companies from multinational to start- up.

I also have a passion in architecture and buildings, so much so that my dream is to one day take part in Grand Designs. It is this passion which has led me to my current work with Aspray - more of that later - but, talking about buildings… There’s nothing better than opening your own front door, knowing you can shut it behind you and escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. That’s why, when your home is damaged in some way, by extreme weather, fire or criminal activity, it can be painful and unsettling for you on a very personal level.

We then focus on finding the very best Aspray-vetted local plumbers, electricians, builders and roofers. Providing you with regular progress reports, we project manage the repairs so that your home or business is returned to its former glory as quickly as possible. It may be hard to believe but this amazing service comes COMPLETELY FREE to you, since we invoice the insurers directly for all property reinstatement and repairs. (You will, of course, have to pay the policy excess as you would have to in any case when you make a claim.) Thinking back to the awful floods in December 2013, I’m sure it remains all too real in your memory as we reach the anniversary of those fateful few days. The great thing that came out of that was how people will pull together in difficult times.

That’s why I find my work with Aspray so rewarding. Project management involves a While your business may not hold as much of whole range of activities but the best part for your precious family history, property damage me is being able to make a positive difference and interruption in trading can be just as to those whose lives have been turned upside devastating in its own way. down by damage to their home or business.

The Barrister Broker - reducing your legal costs Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! There has been some fantastic entertainment in Edenbridge over the last couple of months with Bonfire Night being one, but what a shame about the rain. Still, great to see so many people out supporting the event and like many of you, I got absolutely drenched! Also, all those Doctor Who’s in town for the Christmas event was a great spectacle and the Tardis behind the Eden Valley Museum was most impressive.

We now live in a digital age with the internet an invaluable information resource tool as expertise and knowledge is widely shared and easily accessible across the web. Whatever subject takes your interest there is a mass of free information available online. Take legal issues as an example. We can now learn from the numerous legal “DIY” websites that are only a few clicks away, enabling us to become empowered to deal with legal issues ourselves rather than engage legal representation. This might explain the increase the courts are seeing in the “litigant in person” - the term used by the courts to describe someone who does not have a solicitor acting for them.

This is where I help. For the benefit of new readers, I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. I am a freelance Barristers’ Clerk passionately helping individuals and businesses take control of their legal issues by arranging experienced Barristers to provide expert legal advice and representation in court. My direct route to Barristers removes any need for a solicitor resulting in huge savings for the client. This is the middle ground. My clients are litigants in person but don’t represent themselves – instead they use a Barrister to help them with their legal issue, whether that is advising on the law, determining strategy, drafting legal documents, writing letters or representing them in court. I have had many clients over the past 18 months who, in my view, represent the new breed of litigant in person – empowered; self-directed; efficient; keen to do as much as they can; cost conscious but realistic enough to recognise the benefits of investing in a legal expert’s help; determined not to use solicitors.

People want to avoid overspending on legal matters. Legal costs are an overhead to be monitored, managed and trimmed. In my world, clients use the direct services of Barristers Whilst money can be saved by not using a to help them resolve their legal issues as quickly lawyer, I recently read that senior judges have and cost-effectively as possible. expressed concern that litigants in person are losing winnable cases because they do not have Divorce/financial settlements; contact and legal representation. The message here is that residence of children; business disputes - If should DIY go wrong it can put you in a worse you are acting for yourself but could do with position than which you started, especially if some expert help, or maybe you already have a solicitor but would like to know if I can save you you get hit with the other side’s costs! money, give me a ring on 01732 866 562.
