Greenfields School Celebrates 30th Anniversary Private school education for as little as £57 per week

Greenfields is an independent, non-denominational, day and boarding school nestled on the edge of the Ashdown Forest that services children from 2 to 18. It has an active Montessori based Pre-school, Reception classes, junior, senior, 6th Form and EFL classes. It recently celebrated 30 years in Forest Row with eleven separate events, hosting people from all over the world. Greenfields teaches national curriculum and runs like any other independent school with the exception that it utilises a unique study method. This method isolates the barriers preventing or hindering a child from learning and then provides precise tools to deal with them. Its use opens the door to any child of any ability learning anything. This, along with small class sizes and plenty of individual attention, allows ‘gifted’ children to study ahead of their year group where feasible, or slower children to receive extra help when necessary. Greenfields also adheres to a strong moral code with a zero tolerance of bullying, drugs or alcohol. Visitors to the school routinely comment on the high morale, confidence and friendliness of the children. These attributes were also noted by the Independent Schools Inspectorate* when they inspected in 2011. Three inspectors over a period of two weeks looked into every aspect of the school's performance. The study methods were new to them and they looked at them with great interest. The school was rated overall as “Good” and one observer noted: “Pupils of all abilities display good subject knowledge, understanding and skills. They acquire secure literacy and numeracy skills, and develop a capacity to think critically. Many pupils show strong creative skills, in writing, art work and drama. Pupils are very articulate, listen carefully and contribute well when asked. They are motivated, and work independently and with enthusiasm.” Greenfields is proud of what it has achieved in the last 30 years and also of the many children who have gone on to excel in their various careers. In celebration of its 30th Anniversary it radically reduced tuition fees in order to make private school education accessible to more people. Although this resulted in the pre-school, in particular, doubling in size, limited places are still available in some year groups. You are invited to tour the school and get your questions answered!

The ISI inspects schools according to a standard framework for inspection which it has laid down for the purposes of ensuring that standards are maintained and that the school complies with relevant legal requirements.

Community Noticeboard March is here and our community section is filled with great local goings on and fantastic fundraising ideas. This month, I’ve been uncovering all the details you need to know about getting involved with Marie Curie’s annual Great Daffodil Appeal, as well as Horley’s Lions club egg-citing Easter Egg Appeal. Town Mayor, Richard Olliver also writes about the free leisure facilities on our doorstep too. So, there’s no excuse not to get out and about and enjoy the spring sunshine. Have a wonderful month, Your community feature writer, Shelley Shelley@mantramagazines.co.uk

Scouting for Volunteers You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. Volunteering with scouting is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. 8th Dorking (Charlwood) Scout Group has a long 100 year history,

but currently are in need of adults to support the scout section. Scouts, aged ten and a half to fourteen years, take part in a varied programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit, and developing their creative talents.

It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes. Being outdoors is important, and half the programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing. If you have a few hours to spare each week and would like to know more, or are a young person aged between six and fourteen and would like to join scouting, please contact Penny Shoubridge, Group Scout Leader on 01293 863221 or email pennyshoubridge@gmail.com.

A Word from our Town Mayor As Spring is now here, I thought I would tell you about our parks and leisure facilities in the town. If you look in the Town Guide or our new website www.horleysurrey-tc.gov.uk you will find details of all the parks and recreation areas owned or managed by the Town Council Leisure Committee ably chaired by Cllr Simon Marshall. There is a huge choice of dog walking areas, football pitches, an all weather sports pitch, adult fitness apparatus, and multiple children’s play areas. There is something for everyone. Our recreation ground is also used as a

site for fairgrounds, circuses, fireworks displays and the annual Horley Carnival. We also manage allotments in Church Road and, in the near future, in the Acres development.

Best wishes to all our residents. Along with a number of other organisations in Horley, we have a Community Hall in Albert Road, The Edmunds Hall. We have also done a lot of restorative work in The Innes Pavilion in Court Lodge. This will become our second community Hall. We expect to have use of Tanyard Barn in The Acres estate soon. All these facilities are available to local residents. Not bad for a middle size town is it?

The Great Daffodil Appeal Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal kicks off across the country on 1st March. Volunteer collectors will be out in force throughout the month of March encouraging everyone to give a donation and wear one of the charity’s daffodil pins. All funds raised by the appeal will help Marie Curie Nurses

provide more care for people with terminal illnesses, at the time when they need the most support. Since the first Great Daffodil Appeal took place in 1986, more than £70 million has been raised to fund the charity’s work. The Great Daffodil Appeal doesn’t just raise much-needed funds; it also raises awareness of Marie Curie services and the need for high quality nursing care for people with terminal illnesses. For more information call 0845 601 3107 (local rate) or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/daffodil.

Glazed Salmon Skewers with Sesame Noodles

This is a great way to jazz up salmon – with a Japanese teriyaki sauce glaze served with sesame flavoured noodles. Soak the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before threading on the strips of salmon to prevent them from burning under the hot grill.

Ingredients 4 x salmon fillets, skinned 6 tbsp teriyaki sauce 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed 250g packet medium egg noodles 2 tsp sesame seed oil 1 tsp grated root ginger 6 salad onions, trimmed and thinly sliced 40g radishes, trimmed and thinly sliced 2 tbsp sesame seeds 30ml honey, warmed

Method Slice each salmon fillet widthways into 2 strips and place the strips in a shallow dish. Mix together the teriyaki sauce and garlic and pour over the salmon. Cover and leave to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium. Thread the strips of salmon onto 8 wooden skewers. Grill the salmon skewers for 3-4 minutes on each side until just cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain well. Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large non-stick frying pan and add the ginger, spring onions, radishes and sesame seeds.

Stir fry for 2-3 minutes then add the noodles and toss well to mix. Just before serving, brush the salmon skewers with the warmed honey and grill for a further few minutes. Divide the sesame noodles between four serving bowls and top with the salmon skewers. TIP: To save time buy a small jar of ready prepared ginger puree rather than buying fresh root ginger – once opened it will keep in the fridge for a few weeks and is great for adding an Oriental flavour to rice and stir fries.

Supporting people at home facing life-threatening illness

It’s a sad fact that almost everyone has been touched by cancer – a family member, friend, neighbour or work colleague. It can be a weary and frightening experience and often lonely when there is no-one at hand to share the fears and concerns serious illness brings. The Brigitte Trust offers a free volunteer service of emotional support and practical help at home alongside the vital care of the medical teams, offering respite and a listening ear.

Spending time with someone diagnosed with a life-threatening illness or sitting quietly whilst a carer has a break – emotional support is so important at a time like this. Brigitte Trust volunteers make weekly visits to local people, offering time to share and practical support such as shopping and transport to appointments.

receive full training and ongoing supervision.

Being able to talk to someone from outside the family circle who will listen without judgment can be an enormous help at a very vulnerable time. Bereavement support is also offered, and volunteers

The Brigitte Trust will give you the skills and support to make a real difference to the lives of seriously ill people and their families.

The Brigitte Trust, in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, is expanding its service and volunteers are needed from East Surrey, Mole Valley and West Sussex to join its next training course, beginning this June.

Wanted. Hard worker. 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To wait on me hand and foot. Feed me, clean me and comfort me even when I don’t know why I’m upset. Learn on the job and no manual included.

Would you apply?

I wonder how many would apply if they saw this advert in a job search? These amazing people, known as ‘Mothers’, take this on day after day, potentially for up to 18 years or even more. So with Mother’s Day looming, how about making Mums the number one priority?

So how about treating your Mum to some ‘Me’ time this March? There are so many different types of ways, which sometimes can include the little ones too. How about booking your Mum in for a hypnotherapy session just for relaxation? A great idea if they feel they haven’t slept properly for months.

Working with Mums individually or in groups over the past few years, one thing really stands out. They often feel that admitting their anxiety or their need for emotional support is seen as ‘not being strong enough’.

Or try a relaxing massage or a Reiki session or two? These can also be enjoyed with your little one, or even your big ones too. There are some fantastic wellness and holistic centres in Sussex and Surrey.

What I feel any therapist does is to act as a catalyst, enhancing a Mother’s natural skills, allowing them to realise that asking for help is not a failure, but something that strengthens them and their bond with their young.

My sister asked me the other day if I’d hypnotised my new two month old niece, as (unusually) she’d slept for hours. Personally I think she knew if she opened her eyes I’d sing again, and sleep was the better option.

What is hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is a natural state of heightened awareness that occurs within all of us. It allows us to open our minds to beneficial suggestions and allows the client to use their imagination to make positive changes. A brief way to describe a feeling similar to hypnosis is that moment you've been watching TV and not heard a word that's been said, even though you've been staring straight at the screen. Alternatively it's the car journey where you wonder how you got to a certain place. Your mind is on auto-pilot and must have been in control, otherwise there would probably have been an accident. What can hypnotherapy help with?  Addictions (e.g. alcoholism, nicotine)  Anger management  Anxiety  Blushing  Bruxism (teeth grinding)  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome*  Depression  Eating Disorders  Exam Nerves  Fear of Flying  Food Addiction  Gastric Band Hypnotherapy  Insomnia  Internet addiction  Irritable Bowel Syndrome  Low Self Confidence  Low Self-Esteem  Obsessions & Compulsions  Childbirth  Confidence  Fears and phobias  Grief  Habits e.g. nail biting  Health  Memory  Relaxation  Performance  Personal development  Regression  Relationships  Sexual problems  Sleep Disorders  Sports performance  Stress and anxiety  Weight loss

Natural at home or outdoors… You don’t have to go very far for great family photos – your back garden, the local park, the beach. I quite often go to Tilgate Park with families or Priory Park and run around for an hour come rain or shine. Every package includes a disc of all the images for you to keep with my copyright – so you can print until your heart’s content or your walls are covered!

Weddings, Weddings, Weddings !

I come along to your home set up my studio and photograph the children dressing up and having fun – 30 minutes with the white backdrop and 30 minutes with the black backdrop (one change of clothes half way and finish off with my dressing up box). Price £125. I am normally there approx. 2 hours – and often do this sort of session in the afternoon so then Pizza and Sleepovers continue once I am gone!

Lucky me ! ‘I am a very lucky lady, I get to do what I love for a living and people let me in to really special moments to capture memories that last them forever” Recent successes for me include featuring in Vogue Magazine in Jan 2013 and May 2013 issues as a ‘Top Recommended Photographer and most recently one of my images was chosen for the front cover of this month’s NCT Mid Sussex Magazine.

HOMES 5. Separating spaces Not all open-plan spaces need to be entirely open all of the time, so for truly flexible living it’s advisable to include some sort of flexible division. In a period property, panelled doors that can be folded back against the walls when not in use are perfect; in a more modern house a moveable screen, or perhaps ceilingmounted panels (on a track) that can be pulled to one side when desired, would be enormously useful.

Open Sesame Why have several small, dark rooms when you can simply knock down some walls and live in a gorgeous, airy, bright and huge space? But there are eight key issues you should bear in mind when decorating your open-plan home, says Katherine Sorrell 1. Creating a focal point While traditional rooms often work around a fireplace or TV, larger, multi-purpose rooms can lack visual focus. By introducing colour, pattern and/or texture on one wall – perhaps above a sofa or behind a dining table – you’ll add character, interest and even drama. The easiest solution is to use a strong paint colour or to hang a large painting, photograph or print, while boldly patterned wallpaper also works well.

3. Planning your lighting Use lighting to delineate different areas within your open-plan space, and illuminate different parts to suit your needs, whether it’s a living area or working space, a kitchen or a dining area. Layer in different types of light in different areas, using a mixture of concealed lighting (in ceilings or under shelves, for example) and eye-catching, over-sized fixtures that suit the extra-large space.

2. Using colour Pale colours are generally considered best to emphasise the airiness of large open spaces. But should you go for one shade all over, or choose different colours for different areas? Using the same colour throughout gives an unbroken look and emphasises space, but if one end of the room is to function separately from the other – a living and dining space, a living and work space – you can zone these areas by varying their colour. A tonal scheme, with colour going from light to darker from one end to the other, can be particularly effective.

4. Choosing a floor Choosing flooring for a multi-purpose space such as an open-plan cooking/ dining/living area can be tricky, as the kitchen area needs to be able to cope with splashes and spills, while you’ll want the sitting area to feel cosy and comfortable. You have two choices: either run the same flooring throughout for a sleek, flowing look, or choose a variety of types of flooring which will differentiate between areas. If you go for the former option, consider stone or wood, both of which can be softened with rugs where necessary, or consider high quality vinyl, which is spill-proof and forgiving underfoot.

6. Linking spaces Open-plan kitchen/living areas are ideal for entertaining, but how do you successfully blend the spaces seamlessly? One solution is to continue the style of your kitchen units for storage used in nearby areas, choosing a design that looks as good for a TV stand, say, as for a cutlery drawer. Versatility is key and you should consider not just colour but also texture, and even handles – long, slender handles tend to look better in modern living spaces than dumpy round ones, for example. 7. Solutions for storage Knocking two rooms together gives you a gorgeous open area – but, because you’ve lost wall space for cupboards and shelves, much less room to hide your clutter. One solution is to use tall, open shelving that doubles as a room divider as well as somewhere to display your stuff, while if you have a flat-screen TV, mount it on a media wall with storage for DVDs concealed behind it. In fact, make the most of every tiny corner, building storage into sloping ceilings, around windows or in any alcove you can find. 8. Buying and arranging furniture Conventional furniture won’t necessarily have the right proportions to work well in open-plan living areas, so you may have to look for larger-thanaverage pieces, and bear in mind that they have tom look good from all angles, not just the front. Avoid the temptation to place all the furniture around the edges of the room (it will look like a nursing home); instead, create cosy sitting areas within the main space – with two sofas facing each other, with tables and lamps behind, perhaps, or else use modular furniture which creates sociable corners.

Growing Peppers Growing your own peppers is not much more involved than growing tomatoes, so why not give it a try? Pepper plants can be unbelievably pretty too, with fruits in a range of shapes and colour, generally on compact plants and preceded by small and very pretty white flowers. This is a plant with great ornamental as well as edible potential.

The seeds are readily obtainable from many catalogues or garden centres but make sure you take into account the level of heat that each type delivers.

Sow the seeds between now and early April. I use a multi-purpose or a seed compost, but for good germination you will need to provide a bit of extra warmth, ideally from a heated propagator positioned in a spot where it receives plenty of natural light. Both chilli and sweet - or If you don’t have the time or bell - peppers can be grown facilities to raise your own from in a greenhouse border, in a seed, you can always buy a few sunny spot in the garden in plants in a garden centre or send warmer parts of the country, or on a sunny, sheltered spot on the off for them. patio. The heavier, earlier crop will come if you grow the plants Keep the plants a tiny bit drier than you would a tomato plant in a greenhouse or conservatory, but it is well worth growing them and feed regularly with a highpotash liquid feed (most readily outside too. available as a ‘tomato food’). This helps to keep the plants growing Sweet peppers, especially strongly and the potash will the red ones, are very high in encourage plenty of flowers vitamin A and both red and and so fruits to form. green peppers are also very high in vitamin C. If you are going for plants in pots, choose a planter that Chilli peppers also have a has good drainage and is 30cm good supply of vitamins C (12in) or more in diameter, and A and in addition, contain adding broken pots for extra both beta-carotene and drainage.

If you’re after the hottest possible heat from your chilli peppers, then you’ll find this comes from fruits that are totally ripe and from peppers that are grown in warmer conditions. If you are growing sweet peppers in patio pots then you are likely to find that there are still some unripened fruits on the plants when temperatures start to fall at the end of summer and well into autumn. To increase the chances of these ripening and increasing to full size, move the pots to a warmer spot or, if possible, to a porch, conservatory or greenhouse where they’ll get extra warmth and also plenty of natural light. If you want chillies that look particularly good on the patio there are plenty to choose from. ‘Black Pearl’ is a hot chilli pepper with a distinct blackish tinge to the mature leaves and fruits that are black early on and mature darkest red. For classic chillis with bright red, finger shaped fruits try ‘Thai Dragon’. By Pippa Greenwood Make 2014 the year you start Growing Your Own Vegetables! Visit Pippa’s website www.pippagreenwood.com

Where there’s a Will... “When we first took over the business called Good Wills from a close friend we looked at how the company was being promoted locally and found that using the RH Uncovered magazines had been the most effective. Therefore we decided to increase the advert size and in turn received many more enquiries. We have now been running the business for over four years and almost all of our business comes from RH Uncovered and then referrals from the customers that these magazines initially produce. We found that people did not go out and pick up the RH Uncovered magazine specifically looking for a Will Writer, but they would read it every month due to the high standard of Wills Writ ten editorial content and local community articles that appear every month... that’s how they see our advert.” Lady Pr We al actition er

Blinding Result! “It was fantastic to get a phone call on the first day that your new RH Uncovered magazine covering Haywards Heath came out that immediately give us a small order which was more than we could have hoped for. It just shows how important it is in choosing the right advert design and the right publication. We always try to establish the number of responses we get from the RH publications, but first one, first day of delivery, must be considered special to us both. Ma k
