to April!

We are delighted to report, that once again we have the honour of being the winners of a Corporate Live Wire Innovation and Excellence Award for Lifestyle Magazine of the year! It’s been a really tough year for all businesses, including us, so to win this award during a world wide pandemic is especially appreciated by us all at Surrey Hills Publishing Ltd. We are a very small team of three and it is wonderful to know our efforts and hard work have not gone unnoticed. We are, of course, very lucky to produce our magazines in such wonderful communities, and for that, we thank you, our readers, for making our magazines what they are. Without your amazing sense of community and contributions we would not be winners! So this award is for us all. Here’s to moving forward, and into better times! Lots to enjoy in this months issue; we are delighted to share information from The Meeting Place about their new Befriending Service for people who are over 65 and living in or around Bookham, and may benefit from a regular telephone call … do see page 8 to learn more. I hope you like the look of our recipe this month! It comes to us from a delightful new book by local lady, Ozlem Warren; Ozlem revisits her Turkish roots within it’s pages. It’s great to include information from both Leatherhead Tennis Club and Bookham Bowling Club too this month! It’s slowly starting to feel like the local area we know and love! Keep well, get your vaccine, wear a mask and eat some chocolate - Happy Easter to you all! (not necessarily in that order!)

Zesty semolina sponge cake in syrup Revani This months delicious recipe comes from a book by local lady Ozlem Warren called

‘Özlem’s Turkish Table’ It’s a stunning book filled with a wonderful array of mouth watering traditional family recipes and it is available from Amazon or online at: www.gbpublishing.co.uk/ ozlemsturkishtable (link includes a 25% discount on a signed book when you buy Ozlem’s embroidered Turkish Table apron).

Ingredients (Serves 6-8) 165g/6oz coarse semolina 200g/7oz sugar 45ml/3 tablespoons all-purpose/ plain flour 5ml/1 teaspoon baking powder 225g/8oz plain whole milk yoghurt 3 medium eggs, beaten 60ml/4 tablespoons light olive oil 10ml/2 teaspoons vanilla extract Zest of 1 lemon Juice of ½ lemon

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 First make the syrup, as it needs to cool down. Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan at a medium heat. Stir and bring the mixture to the boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low and let the syrup simmer for about 10 minutes, uncovered. Add the lemon juice, mix well and simmer for another 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and let the syrup cool down while you make the semolina cake.

For the syrup:

Grease a square or rectangular baking dish 8in x 10in/20cm x 27cm with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Beat the eggs and combine with the sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat and combine well for a few minutes, until the sugar dissolves. Then add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, yoghurt, semolina, flour, the baking powder and beat well. Stir in the vanilla extract, lemon juice and lemon zest and mix well until you have a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the greased baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, until the cake is golden brown. To check; insert a toothpick into the centre of the cake, if it comes out clean, that means the cake is cooked. If not, bake for another 3-5 minutes.

300g/10 ½ oz sugar 360ml/12fl oz water Juice of ½ lemon Ground pistachio nuts and desiccated coconut to serve

Using a large spoon, drizzle the cooled syrup all over the semolina cake. Let the cake absorb the syrup and cool down. Once cool, cut the Revani in square or diamond shapes; you can serve Revani with ground pistachio and desiccated coconut over the top like we do back home.


This month Buy to Let Hunter are chatting to a client who uses his investment properties to finance his retirement: Paul was busy running his own fire safety business and never intended to become a landlord, but when his son went to uni Paul found his digs woefully lacking. “I borrowed money against the business and bought an old terraced house.” His little darling moved in whilst Daddy, in his spare time, did the place up, soon enabling more students to move in. It then dawned on Paul that he was making money on the student rentals, so he decided to cut his losses, focus on the Southampton lets and sold up the fire biz. But, as he became more (ahem) senior and less keen on being a landlord, Paul changed tack, sold all the student lets and invested in something more conventional: a cottage by the sea. “When I first bought it I just loved it, always imagining we would live there – a short walk to the town or beach and just a bike ride to the New Forest.” Paul took this new project on with gusto, with visions of his imminent retirement with his lovely wife, Pauline. But, once finished, Paul wasn’t ready to retire, so he handed the management of his perfect “holiday home” over to Buy to Let Hunter.

cottage became fantastically desirable. “Now I am converting the old art studio in the garden to a Summer house.” After a discussion with the BTLH team it seemed a no-brainer to make the small investment to get an even greater return. BTLH can help you find the perfect holiday home, too. Whether it is a place for your own retirement one day, or to use in the meantime in conjunction with renting out or if it is dedicated to guests is totally up to you. But staycations have never been more popular, so if you have been toying with the idea, the time may be now. And Paul’s plans for the future? “I’m too happy where I live now, too entrenched in a fabulous community and frankly too busy to retire!” laughed Paul – but it is nice to know the perfect bolt hole is there waiting for them should they make the decision to pick up their bucket and spade and go fossicking on the beach. In the meantime, Paul just cashes his cheques and plans his next holiday. Can BTLH help you find the perfect property? Get in touch and have a chat: 020 7550 9396 or hello@buytolethunter.com. For more information check out www.buytolethunter.com Quadrant Road, Richmond, London, TW9 1DH

Berkeley Homes Want more houses in Effingham Berkeley Homes have approval to build 295 homes in Effingham along with the new Howard School build. The original planning proposal was turned down by Guildford Borough Council but upon appeal the decision was over turned by the Secretary of State at the time. Berkeley Homes now want to amend their Masterplan and add a further 110 homes to the build proposal bringing the total to 405 homes plus The Howard new build school for 2000 pupils within the small village of Effingham. Berkeley Homes have stated that if the planning for the 110 homes isn’t approved, the new school will not be built. Their comments and plans can be seen on the website: www.thenewhomeforthehoward.co.uk. The additional proposed 110 homes would be built on greenbelt land acquired by Berkeley Homes. Should the total build be approved with the addition of the further 110 homes, it could bring as many as 800 extra vehicles to Effingham and surrounding roads and even more at school drop off and pick up times, with 2000 students attending the New Build School. As well as this there would be much increase in traffic along Effingham Common Road including heavy construction vehicles for the site, despite the weight limit for Effingham Railway Bridge being 7.5 tonnes. As a result of loss of greenbelt to accommodate the additional houses there is a potential for increased flooding to Effingham Common Road. All this along with confirmation from the CEO of The Howard that the current catchment area cannot be confirmed as remaining the same. If this is the case, the addition of extra homes on this site will further reduce the

22 Looklocal Magazine - April 2021

chances of children in Bookham and Fetcham attending The Howard. Berkeley Homes state that the cost of the school build has led to a financial deficit hence the need for 110 additional homes on Green Belt land to subsidise the School Build Project. At the time of writing this, the date for the planning proposal to Guildford Borough Council hasn’t yet been announced, but by the time you read this article the planning proposal to comment on should be live with Guildford Borough Council. A local campaign set up to object to the build was launched in February and has gained traction. Should you wish to find out more please email nomorehomes@outlook.com or visit www.nomorehomes.co.uk where they can point you in the direction of the petition and assist you with writing an objection letter to the council, should this be your view point. *Surrey Hills Publishing Ltd remain impartial and provide this article as a point of reference and for information purposes*

SEE YOU SOON...

We appreciate that this is a frequent holiday time chant, but its also very appropriate considering the last 13 months or so we have all been through. It is anticipated that from Monday 12th April we will be able to open our doors for general browsing and instore support. It will be great to return to a life we once knew. We look forward to seeing you then. Over the last 13 months we have been in close dialogue with many of our suppliers who have provided us with preferential supplies of equipment, when there were acute shortages generally, but there is an expectation that product shortages will continue maybe until Christmas 21, so be warned! Products which will continue to be in constrained supply are; tablets, laptops, graphics cards, printers and home networking products. We aim to maintain stock of these products, but demand is outstripping supply. Please call us to discuss your needs.

Preserving Memories…

We have seen a huge increase in the demand to have your memories saved and converted onto new media. This could be the conversion of video tapes onto DVD or into MP4 files for viewing on your smart TV, iPad or computer. So if you have any tapes or discs that you would like converted we are very happy to help. Also, in a similar light, we have converted many photo’s into digital form, again to make you memories more accessible and easier to share. Please ask for further details

Security- Password help…

Over the next few editions we will be running a series of articles on Security and how to improve/maintain the security for your setup and accounts in general. To login to a website or online account, most providers require a unique user name and password combination to identify its really you, in addition to this they may offer you the ability to use Multi Factor Authentication. This is often referred to as MFA or 2FA. Essentially this involves sending you a code or email to a secondary account or device, to assist in account verification. If you are offered this option, we would recommend you use it as it can enhance the security to your account and sometimes decrease the dependency on remembering the account password! Whilst we are on the subject of passwords, we are constantly being told not to use the same password for all accounts, but then this gives you a further headache of having to remember all the different passwords you have used. To help you with this you might find using a variable and a static piece of information will help you stay safe. To explain further - let’s say your Mum’s maiden named is “smith”. You could modify this surname to be the constant suffix of your password. So let’s change it to 5m1t4, so that this will always be the suffix of your password. Then you combine this with the first three letters of the website you are using, meaning your eBay password becomes eBa~5m1t4. Using this “code” will safely allow you to make a note of the password as being “eBa~mum”. You will know what this means, but no one else will.

BOOKHAM BOWLING CLUB 2021 We have disassembled the remains of our disastrous 2020 year due to Covid and using the best pieces have created a brighter (we all hope) 2021 playing season. Following our zoom AGM held on November 5th we now have a newer Management committee, a newer Playing committee and a strengthened resolve (if allowed by the Govt.) to get the Club back on our green in 2021. The green has had its extreme winter makeover and is already looking playable.

So if interested in bowling we are holding a free trial weekend "Come & Try Bowls" on May 1 & 2

Nervous meeting new people? Yes so are we!

see our website for details - at the club which is located inside the Chrystie Rec at Bookham off the Dorking Road on the way to Polesdon Lacey. We are right behind the football pavilion. Our new secretary Paul Barrett, alongside our new captains Jane Fiducia & Steve Mullins, would be pleased to hear from you. All you need is a flat soled

We provide the bowls, coaching and refreshments for the weekend. Social distancing and snow clearing maybe optional! We continue our quest to support our chosen Captain's charity: Air Ambulance Surrey, Sussex & Kent as well as the Bookham Village Day.

Bookham Wine Club

A virtual wine tour of the Loire Valley with Lits Philippou … During March and with the aid of Zoom, members enjoyed the delights of the Loire Valley from the comfort of their own homes. Lits, one of the club’s most popular presenters provided a magical and revealing tour of the region with a gallery of fascinating slides and a fact filled narrative. Before setting off, members were provided with a short list of wines to purchase and enjoy during the presentation. A Muscadet or a Pouilly Fume for white, and a Cabernet Franc from the Chinon/Saumer region for the red. The Loire Valley is UNESCO’s largest World Heritage Site and also France’s most diverse wine region in terms of terroir. Our trip took us along the 1,000km length of the Loire river from its estuary on the Atlantic coast to its source in Central France, where we discovered superb, diverse wines along the way. Plus views of the lush countryside sprinkled with fairy tale chateaux and grand Renaissance-era castles that tourists can visit.

We specialise in: New roofs, slate & tiled roof specialists

While Zoom is not popular with everyone, it is a timely solution for members who wish to keep connected and entertained, and so it was for our evening with Lits. A further Zoom evening will be held in April with Heather Dougherty talking about the wines of Northern Rhone. Thereafter, it is hoped that garden meetings can be organised through the summer, with a return to the Old Barn Hall in September.

THE LEATHERHEAD & DISTRICT LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY

GUY BYAM (1918 - 1945) At a recent online lecture, FRANK HASLAM told the story of BBC war reporter Guy Byam (1918- 1945) who lived in Fetcham and was killed in World War 2. The son of a Belgian army officer, Guy spoke several languages. When the war broke out he became a sub-lieutenant in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve engineering branch. He was posted to HMS Jervis Bay, a pre-war liner being used for convoy protection. On 28 October 1940 it left Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a convoy of 38 vessels. On 5 November the German battleship Admiral Scheer sank it before attacking the convoy and destroying six ships. There were just 68 survivors of the 266 crew and among those rescued was Guy Byam. His mother got a telegram saying: ‘Got a ducking but safe and well. Home soon.’ It is thought he joined Combined Operations and took part in a raid on Norway. He lost sight in one eye, was invalided out of service, and became an aeronautics research engineer before joining the BBC French Service in 1942, broadcasting to occupied Europe. His voice and language skills were invaluable. He underwent parachute training and accompanied the paratroopers, also learning how to send his recordings back to London. He married Nancie Lockhart, a BBC studio manager, in 1944 and their daughter Michele was born that year. The family lived in Fetcham at an early 18th century house called The Salt Box. Now two properties at the corner of Lower Road and The Street, the house is still there, Grade 2 listed with its distinctive gables. On 6 July 1944 a report by Guy appeared in The Manchester Guardian. It concluded: ‘The people are pleased to see us. We apologise for bringing the

34 Looklocal Magazine - April 2021

war to their homes...A dead paratrooper is laid out in the best bedroom, covered from head to foot with flowers.’ Soon afterwards he was at an American air base in Essex reporting the naming of a B17 Flying Fortress bomber, Rose of York, by Princess Elizabeth (later Queen). The aircraft had already done eight missions. In September he reported an RAF attack on the Tirpitz, the enemy battleship destroying allied convoys. Then he joined Operation Market Garden, the airborne attack to secure bridges over the Rhine in Holland. He was one of the last to escape at the end of the battle. The Surrey Advertiser reported: ‘Mr Guy Byam ....[escorted] our wounded to the hospital held by the Germans, and had to escape from an SS lieutenant who tried to capture him.’ Undaunted, on 3 February 1945 he joined a raid on Berlin with the American 8th Air Force, flying on the Rose of York’s 63rd and last mission. It was hit by flak and failed to return home, disappearing in the North Sea. The BBC book War Report said Guy’s ‘reports had all the marks of a great future in broadcasting’.

Nancie left The Salt Box and married another BBC figure, the later TV newsreader Robert Dougall, in 1947. The marriage lasted more than 50 years. He died in 1999 and Nancie a few years later. For more information on the L&DLHS go to www. leatherheadhistory.org.

Surrey County Council

APPROVES £2.5M

funding for new Bookham Youth & Community Facility

Surrey County Council (SCC) have approved the funding of £2.5M for the construction of a new shared-use building to replace the old Bookham Youth Centre on Lower Road. The new development at the Lower Road Recreation Ground has been designed to accommodate various community uses such as the Bookham Colts - youth football team, a children’s day nursery and events that used to be held at the old centre. This funding allocation is great news, but the next step in the project will be the anticipated granting of outline planning permission by Mole Valley District Council’s Development Management Committee. The granting of outline planning permission then allows the detailed design of the facility to proceed.

40 Looklocal Magazine - April 2021

The Computer Generated Image (CGI) shows the proposed location of the new centre on the replacing of the existing building. This is not the final design and is for illustrative purposes only. (Images provided by SCC) We very much hope that outline planning permission is granted and the project can move to the next stage to provide a muchneeded facility for Bookham residents. So far over 90 people have supported the application along with local and national organisations. You can keep up to date with progress on the BRA website: www.bookhamresidents.org.uk Les Huett BRA Communications
