Editor’s Note

March/April 2015  The Edenbridge Directory

Dear Neighbours, WOW! 2015 is really on a roll already and I can’t believe I’m on the

verge of going to print with this issue. As I’m writing this there is white stuff falling outside the window making it all look rather picturesque in the garden although I hope we don’t get too much of it.

I took Mr B-L out for an evening of entertainment recently to the WI

Hall (it all happens there!) and we were thoroughly entertained by The Forge Singers performing their annual Panto - this year ‘The Wizard of Oz’. I’ve never been into Pantos until I first saw the Forge Singers and I’ve been going to their performances for the last few years.

It

was great fun, the costumes and set were magnificent and I couldn’t help myself but sing along to all the classic songs I had almost forgotten about.

I’m also having great fun co-hosting the Women In Business Radio Show with another Kent-based business woman Sian Murphy.

The show is broadcast

weekly from a studio in Southern Kent. One of our recent guests was another Edenbridge resident and business woman, Claire Hearn (also known as Mrs Tea) who runs ‘Pop up’ vintage tea rooms - www.mrstea.com. Her business is fantastic and unique and she keeps going from strength to strength with it.

This issue is brimming with content, features and a huge amount of services you can find operating in and around the local area. I must take this opportunity to thank all of you who have recommended this magazine to businesses you have come across. I don’t have a sales team, it is just me, and without the advertising this magazine wouldn’t exist. Of course one of my main aims with this publication is to support the

community and many pages are specifically allocated for this purpose: Events

Listings, Clubs & Organisations Pages, Community Features, Community Page - and of course these are FREE for local groups and organisations to use in

magazine to hand. I also list the events taking place on the facebook page so you can get reminders of what is happening in the area by liking the page.

In this issue you have a chance to win 2 tickets to Lingfield Park Racecourse - a fun outing as I’ve done it a few times myself.

Some of the clients Gillian has treated over the years have had scarring following a hysterectomy or lymph nodes removed, both resulting in tight scars which have restricted their movement. So, what does the treatment feel like? I will admit that I didn’t feel a thing this time, the numbing cream really works a treat so there is nothing to worry about. It was only until I took some pictures half way through the treatment that I could see the trauma caused to my skin. It has to go through this process in order for it to heal effectively. I will admit that in the picture it does look harsh and you certainly wouldn’t want to be going out the same day or even a couple of days afterwards as it takes this long for the skin to start healing.

I can’t feel a thing, has she started?

Throughout the procedure Gillian completely put me at ease with her friendly and chatty personality, talking through all the things she was doing to me so I didn’t have a thing to worry about. At the end of the session Gillian applied the repair cream and took me through the aftercare instructions which are very straightforward to follow. Every

You can see why the aftercare is so important as the trauma my skin underwent is highly visible in the next set of pictures. I didn’t leave the house for a couple of days but now I’m delighted with how much better my skin is looking, my skin certainly appearing less pitted.

Membership is only £30 for a joint/family membership and £20 for a single membership (membership year runs Nov-Oct). The group has it’s own Facebook page which details the latest news and events and we welcome anyone who would like to come and join us to get in touch.” - Graham Jeeves, Chairman (email: edenbridgeastro@gmail.com)

Edenbridge & District Twinning Association Did you know, or realise, that as a resident of Edenbridge or one of the neighbouring villages you are already a member of the Twinning Association? What is it? The Twinning Association is an agency of the Edenbridge Town Council and was formed in 1973 ‘to promote friendship and understanding’ between the people of Edenbridge and its surrounding villages and the people of Mont Saint Aignan, near Rouen in Normandy, France. What does it do? It arranges exchange visits between the two towns two or three times a year, sometimes for 2 days other times 3 days long, sometimes small groups some larger, sometimes by coach other times by shared transport, sometimes themed as in the Walking or Historical Weekends or just of general interest. During exchange visits to France we always stay with French families, but join together for the outings and it does not matter if you do not speak French! The Association also encourages and assists local organisations to make their own exchange visits and even create their own links. Examples include the Forge Singers, the Town Band, the Rugby Club and the Scouts. Together with the French organising committee we also try to arrange exchanges for individuals who wish to find work experience in France. Who does it? Anyone who wants to get involved! There are no barriers - families with young children or individuals of any age. It is open to anyone who lives in the area, with occasional friends or relatives from further afield. Remember there are no subscriptions and everyone is welcome! Newsletters and information on these and extra events are sent out over the year and if you would like to receive these and find out more, just email: secretary@edta.org.uk or phone 01342 850 249.

Eden Valley Museum 2015 season A new Fossils and Prehistoric Archaeology display dates from when dinosaurs roamed the area and before the North Downs were even formed. It features a hand axe made by Neanderthal man 240,000 years ago along with a range of artefacts from a local rock shelter which was in use from the end of the Ice Age, and evidence of Romans in the Valley. The Silks and other World War One Post Cards display has been updated with previously unseen Song Cards, sentimental cards exchanged between servicemen and their wives or sweethearts during WW1, along with a collection of scenic post cards sent home from France by Wilfred Allen who lived in The Square in Edenbridge. Runs until June 2015. The ‘Til the boys come home WW1 Exhibition, which explores the impact of the Great War on the lives of people in the Eden Valley, continues throughout 2015.

A new Map of the Month display has been introduced for 2015. Each month there will be a new map related to some piece of local history that you can come and explore. The first map is of Edenbridge, dating from somewhere between 1853 and 1878 and serves to show how much the town has grown since then. In March a ‘Map of Westerham and Eatonbridge Hundred’ will be on display. If you want to find out more about the maps and the time they come from then be sure to check back every month and follow us on twitter @EdenMuseumKent. Finally, a new display of Household Implements and Devices from days gone by is now in place, with some teasing questions posed for visitors as to what some of the implements were actually used for. Open Wednesday and Friday from 2 to 4.30pm and Thursday and Saturday from 10am to 4.30pm.

Pottery talent nurtured by local teacher/artist This ceramic dragon, by Year 10 student Rene Yalcinkaya, has been a labour of love that he has worked on during his pottery lessons and also in an after school pottery club organised by his teacher and local Edenbridge resident/ artist Jo Wooltorton. Rene attends Moor House School & College, a specialist school in Surrey for young people with speech and language difficulties. Rene particularly enjoys the creativity that 3D Design offers him as it allows him to fully express his ideas without having to be too concerned with traditional academic constraints such as full stops, paragraphs and capital letters! This talented young potter is developing his skills and already has plans for his next project, which will be an massive lidded urn decorated with...another dragon!

The Barrister Broker - reducing your legal costs We are in February already, where did January go? I wonder how many readers managed to keep to their New Year Resolutions? The goals I set for myself were twofold; complete Dry January (no alcohol) and lose a stone in weight. Thankfully I succeeded in both, the latter much to do with the former I would have thought! So no pint of beer for me during the interval when I went to watch The Forge Singers performing a really splendid adaption of The Wizard of Oz at the WI Hall. Congratulations to all involved.

Specialist legal advice and skilled representation could mean the difference between losing or keeping your license or significantly reducing the period of disqualification itself. If the charge is really serious, you could end up in prison. Give yourself the best chance – get advice from a Barrister… contact me. Barristers are specialist legal advisers and court room advocates. They are self-employed independent lawyers, trained to advise clients’ on the strengths and weaknesses of their case. You may not think you have a defence but consideration of all the facts by a Barrister who specialises in this area of law may lead him to the conclusion that you have a genuine defence. A well-argued case and good cross-examination can make a huge difference to the final outcome. Surprising as it may sound, Barristers cost less overall than solicitors. You are paying for the Barrister’s time and expertise not the cost of running a solicitor’s office.

Rather than concentrate on my usual areas of divorce and matrimonial finance and contact and residence of children, I thought I would focus this edition on motoring offences, which is one of those subjects that affects many drivers but isn’t spoken about much.
