Read your way to a beautiful home Spring is traditionally the time to clean, refresh and beautify your home. If you’re not sure where to start, take inspiration from one of this month’s book recommendations.

Homebody Joanna Gaines Whether you’re decorating your first home or just want to refresh a room, it’s always a good idea to seek a bit of inspiration. But ultimately, you don’t want a show house; you want a home that reflects your personality. In Homebody, Joanna Gaines explains how to do just that. She talks the reader through different design styles, gives solutions to common problems (e.g. small dark rooms) and goes through what to consider for every room in the house. And, of course, there are plenty of photos to lust over too.

The Easy Life Lynsey Crombie Most of don’t have ‘cleaning the toilet’ or ‘sorting the cupboard of doom’ at the top of a list of favourite things to do on a Sunday. So why not leave the scrubbing for a bit and curl up with a book instead? The Easy Life will teach you tried and tested methods for a cleaner, more organised home. The focus is on

time and energy-saving hacks. There are checklists, handy hints and plenty of down-toearth advice.

Clean & Green Nancy Birtwhistle Whether you’re trying to be a bit greener this year or just fancy having fewer chemicals around your home, this book could prove invaluable. It’s packed with recipes for DIY cleaning products along with tips on everything from laundry to super-easy oven cleaning. (Who knew chopped up ivy leaves could be used to clean clothes?)

Simplicity at Home Yumiko Sekine with Jenny Wapner If you yearn for a simpler life, this book might be a good place to start. It offers advice for creating a calmer, minimalistic home by following Japanese traditions. There are also meal recipes and guidance on everything from mending ceramics using ‘kintsugi’ to patchworking and selecting plants. A must for fans of Japanese culture.

The Declutter Challenge Cassandra Aarssen As Cassandara says, ‘How do you create a home that makes you feel calm and happy instead of superstressed and a little ragey?’ The answer? Declutter. Unlike other decluttering books, this one doesn’t just focus on the ‘how’, it also helps you to take a good look at the ‘why’, and deal with emotional baggage as well as physical clutter.

Wild at Home Hilton Carter If you struggle to keep a succulent alive, are bored to death with peace lilies or want to know how to arrange houseplants for maximum impact, this is the book for you. The photos alone are enough to send you running for the garden centre. As well as bags of inspiration, you’ll also find practical advice on everything from taking cuttings to dealing with common pests and problems.

But whether we are part of the choir community, a member of a small group, or we just love singing in the shower (best acoustics ever!), it’s important not to neglect our vocal health. After all, our voice is our instrument and we should treat it with as much care and respect as we would any other beloved instrument. Whilst a little bit of recreational singing a few hours a week is unlikely to cause us much harm, we are still using muscle and, in the same way that we would warm up before a workout, we should warm up our voice before we use it. Taking care of our vocal health with some basic exercises doesn’t just benefit our vocal apparatus. Exercises such as deep breathing, chanting, even humming, are a fantastic way to get some much needed relaxation techniques into our lives. Singing is a great stress buster and exercises involved in building vocal strength and stamina can also work wonders for unwinding and calming anxiety.

As a professional musician I know the importance of maintaining a healthy voice alongside a healthy mind if I want to give a good Sarah Jane Eveleigh vocal coach, performance; in my role professional musician and leader of as a vocal coach and choir local community choir Horsley Rocks leader it is my responsibility shares many reasons why we should be Sarah Jane Eveleigh. to promote this to my encouraged to sing. students and choir members.

Lemon tart This divine dessert has a crisp and buttery pastry case filled with a tangy lemon cream filling.

Serves 8 Ready in 1 hour 30 mins + cooling and chilling



Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 23cm loose-based fluted flan tin. Trim the edges and prick the pastry base all over with a fork. Chill in the fridge for 30 mins.


Preheat the oven to 200C / 180C fan / gas mark 6.Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat up. Line the pastry case with greaseproof paper and baking beans. Bake on the hot baking sheet in the preheated oven for 10 mins. Remove the lining paper and beans and bake for a further 5-10 mins until the pastry is pale golden.


Reduce the oven temperature to 170C / 150C fan / gas mark 3. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, sugar, eggs and egg yolks. Gradually whisk in the double cream and lemon juice. Leave the mixture to stand for 10 mins.


Pour the lemon mixture into the pastry case and bake for 30-40 mins until the filling is just set – it should still be a little wobbly in the centre. Leave to cool in the tin. To serve, carefully remove the tart from the tin and decorate with lemon slices and mint leaves.

• 300g ready-made sweet shortcrust pastry • Flour, for dusting • Grated zest and juice from 3 large lemons • 100g caster sugar • 2 medium eggs • 2 medium egg yolks • 150ml double cream • Lemon slices and mint leaves, to decorate

Allow the pastry to come to room temperature for about 30 mins before rolling out, otherwise it may crack.

Enjoyment in lockdown at The Arts Society Horsley theartssocietyhorsley.org.uk Time on your hands? Then why not join our Society and listen to interesting, informative, entertaining, and varied talks by accredited lecturers on the Arts. We are a friendly society, but unfortunately for the time-being, we are not able to hold our meetings in the village hall because of COVID restrictions and do miss the social contact chatting with other members – whilst drinking tea or coffee with biscuits beforehand. We started Zoom webinar lectures in October when it became apparent that normal activities were on hold. However, we are still providing members with lectures every month, which have been rated excellent from feedback we have received. Recently, we have been sharing our lectures with Horsley Lovelace Society.

Many members have found so much enjoyment during this disturbing period of our lives and some members tell us it is great just sitting back in the comfort of their own homes listening to our lectures without having to go out in the wintery weather. The lectures cover many aspects of the Arts. Do look at our website at www.theartssociety horsley.org.uk to find out more about us and details of past and future lectures. I am sure if you start by joining us in our Zoom sessions as a visitor, you will want to become a member when we are back to normal meetings, if not before. We look forward to welcoming you. Ann Simons Chairman

The Arts Society Horsley are continuing their monthly talks on a wide variety of topics related to the arts via Zoom. On Wednesday 17 March 2021 Magdalene Evans will speak on ‘The Sea in Danish Painting’ and on Wednesday 21 April 2021 we have Simon Inglis with a talk entitled ‘A Load of Old Balls’ in which he traces the evolution in design and manufacture of a variety of balls from marbles and golf balls to rugby balls. The talks are at 10.30 via Zoom. Non-members are welcome to join these sessions for £4. Details of the link can be obtained by phoning 01483 285770.

A year in the life of a

Horsley village warden Jason Lee has been working as the village warden since summer 2018 - here he shares a little of his path throughout the year. I love working outdoors with the arrival of spring – it’s a beautiful season where we can put winter behind us and start looking forward to the warm summer. Not too hot yet, still nice crisp mornings and the days start to lengthen. New growth on the trees and plants, spring flowers – lovely! In the summer, I’m busy grass cutting on all the parish kept areas. Grass cutting has been a bit more of a challenge with the extra 2020 alfresco seating, but it’s great that these outdoor areas have enabled the coffee shops to stay open. I love my coffee too – although with a certain coffee house feeding me free biscuits... I’ve had to go on a bit of a diet in recent months! Over the past few years, I have enjoyed putting in planters around the village and it was great to be involved with installing a new remembrance bench, with help from Nick Clemens, the parish clerk. Since I took on the role, I have worked my way around the village, sanding and varnishing the many bins, benches and notice boards – a job only just completed! I have been working on widening the pathway along Ockham Road North wherever possible, and from time to time there’s a fallen tree to deal with. On one occasion, Julie Hamshar from Quaich, got stuck in and helped me out – there’s a proper team spirit here! I love having the chance to chat with people, it’s a lovely community to be part of and so many people have encouraged me with their compliments for the work they see me do. It makes the job so worthwhile, and it makes me happy to know that people notice little things that get done.

Jason Lee, busy working throughout Horsley.

One winter’s day last year, at work on Forest Road, I was approached by a lady who asked if I would like a hot drink. I was wondering how she would carry it up to me when she opened her shopping bag, got out a cup, some milk, tea bags and coffee with a flask of hot water. I was quite overwhelmed by the gesture. It has been a tough year in the village with COVID restrictions but it has been amazing to see shopkeepers and residents doing what they can to help anyone in need. I do regular work for EHPC throughout the year and I do some ad hoc work for WHPC too. Alongside this, I work locally doing gardening and small jobs, and I’m often a volunteer for community events. At home, we have two horses , 15 chickens, a cat and a dog, so there’s plenty in life to keep me busy!

The best apps for running



Zombies, Run!

Adidas’s app for runners enables you to track your runs, set and track goals, share your best times with other users and record all kinds of data including speed, elevation and calories burned. It’s for any kind of run from a brief jog to training for a marathon.

Strava’s probably best known for its superb bike tracking features but it’s also a very good fitness app for runners and swimmers. The main selling point here is the huge Strava community: it enables you to track your progress and see how you compare with other people nearby.

Need a bit of motivation? How about being chased by zombies that want to eat you? That’s the cute concept behind this immersive running game, which turns every run into a life-or-death mission. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a trail or in a park: there are zombies everywhere.

From the Rector... Over the past year, as we have had to cope with various lockdowns and restrictions, I have greatly appreciated one constant. That is St Martin’s Church and our beautiful church grounds. It has been a personal privilege to be able to visit the church most days and I know how important it has been for many to walk around our church grounds. The peace and beauty of the surroundings are a blessing to those who visit the graves of loved ones and those who just wish to take a stroll and enjoy the peace. The grounds are largely looked after by a team of volunteers. We are always on the lookout for additional help, particularly to help cut the grass. Please do contact me if you are interested in helping. I believe that the church grounds look at their best in spring and the photographs (opposite) remind us of that. For the church, spring means Easter and Easter of course reminds us of new life. As I write (in late January) we are not yet certain about whether we will be gathering in church or online during Holy Week and Easter. However, one thing I am certain of is that the Easter message remains the same – that Christ died, was laid to rest in a grave, but rose again to show us that in him there is everlasting life. This is and has always been the essence of the Christian faith. The tower at St Martin’s has looked over the village for nearly 1000 years. It has been witness to at least five plagues and many wars. Yet, it remains there largely untouched as a reminder of God’s constant presence. I hope you will visit the church and its grounds this spring. I wish you every blessing at Easter and beyond.

Horsley Community Bus In Action The Horsley Community Bus has been kept busy throughout the lockdowns. Whilst it has sadly not been able to continue with outings for care home residents, such as Dene Place and Lime Grove, it has continued with essential shopping trips for our elderly residents, mostly to Sainsburys Cobham and Burpham, Tesco in Brooklands and Waitrose in Guildford. Once the vaccination programme started, it quickly became clear that there would be a logistical issues for those invited for vaccination to travel to the centres. The Horsley Community Bus Society Committee, (Kelvin Hayes, Edward Kurk, Joan Hattersley and Jules Cranwell) agreed that the bus should be offered for trips to the centres with a team of highly dedicated volunteer drivers available to drive. The bus is ideal for this, as it has been made as COVID safe as possible. An air-tight plexiglass screen between the driver and passenger compartments has been installed, as well as touchless hand sanitisers at both entrances. The bus has steps for ease of access at the

The driver’s protective screen.

side, as well as a lift at the rear for those using wheelchairs. Passengers are required to wear a mask throughout the journey, and to sanitise on each entry to the bus. The bus is sanitised after each journey. Passengers are asked to contribute a voluntary donation of £5, to cover the running costs of the bus. So far, the team have been transporting a number of passengers to vaccination centres in Epsom, G-Live, Superdrug on Guildford High Street, and as far as St George’s Hospital in Tooting. Of these, G-Live is the preferred option, as it is the most convenient for our residents. Anyone requiring transportation to one of the centres, are invited to get in touch once they have received their vaccination invitation via their GP and booked an appointment. If interested, please contact Kelvin on 01483 283314 or 07530 167283, who will schedule the journeys.

A big thank you to the community bus team who is operating this important service to help get Horsley residents to their vaccination appointments at this time.

TRAVEL Dartmouth harbour.

Matthew Hartley

right for a close-up look at the medieval castles that once guarded the narrow entrance to the estuary. Feel the currents? Time to turn around and enjoy the most enticing views of Dartmouth, town clinging to the hills, dazzling yachts, the Britannia Royal Naval College, an impressive late Victorian building, and you might just spot your nostalgic steam train puffing away through the trees.

Cruising on the River Dart South Devon

Sun, sand and sea, Devon is fabulous, but if you feel like a change from the beach, a river cruise is a lovely way to relax away from the crowds. The Dart has its source up on Dartmoor, its east and west branches joining in Dartmeet before flowing into the Channel at Dartmouth. Among the options is the award-winning Round Robin starting in Paignton, where a steam train takes you along the scenic coast down to the estuary. The half-hour journey ends in Kingswear on the left bank, then it’s just three minutes on the ferry across to Dartmouth. In this land of deep water and steep valleys there are no bridges until you reach Totnes, about eight miles away at the end of the cruise. Departures are governed by the tide and passengers may have time to explore Dartmouth, a gorgeous little place where myriad yachts glisten in a coastal inlet. Framed by green hills, as lush as velvet, neat cottages beckon up the lanes festooned in pastel colours and flowering plants. But soon the cruise is ready to go – paddle steamer only on special dates – first downstream if the tide is

Then all is quiet, just the occasional boat sending ripples across the water or the breeze whispering in the trees. The oaks which gave the Dart its Celtic name may be sparse but there’s plenty of greenery along the meandering banks, while up on the hills meadows glow in luminous light. Salmon, trout and more, the river is full of fish, a treat for black-headed gulls and other birds – here an osprey, there a rare dipper, a lonely heron, a colourful kingfisher and egrets galore. Most exciting in season are the Canadian geese feeding in the shallows and, if you’re lucky, grey seals basking on the rocks or swimming alongside the boat. In this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a few villages doze along the banks – like Stoke Gabriel, its winding streets gathered around an 800-year-old yew tree, or Dittisham with delightful seafood cafés and a passenger ferry to Greenway across the river. Owned by the National Trust, this was Agatha Christie’s holiday home and inspiration for a few murder mysteries. You’ll need a special trip to visit house and garden, but as you sail past you’re sure to see the elegant Georgian house rising on the hill among the trees. A little further, the Sharpam Estate may also tempt you back with award-winning wines and its own delicious cheese. Ninety minutes or so after leaving Dartmouth, Totnes greets you like a fairy tale with bohemian lanes, cream teas and panoramic views from its hilltop castle.

The Forest Brian Austin, a volunteer warden for The Forest, takes us through these local woods. The Forest nature reserve is incongruous and wonderful. Tucked in between the Drift and the railway, bordered on the west by the gardens of Ockham Road North, and the Highlands, is an ancient broadleaf woodland of great biodiversity. The trees give clues to its history, so do the earthworks; the bank and ditch parallel to The Drift has marked the boundary of East Horsley parish since 1036 so was probably made by Saxons a thousand years ago. The great rootplates of upended sweet chestnuts are relics of the Great Storm of 1987. Early Spring is a good time to visit before the leaves are out. The paths are drying; robins, blackbirds and song thrushes are singing. Nuthatches are calling and woodpeckers are drumming. Brimstone butterflies appear on sunny days. The bluebells at the western end are just starting to flower. I first joined a group of volunteers from the Horsley Countryside Preservation Society (HCPS) clearing rhododendron in Great Ridings Wood and met the late Des Hollier, then Chairman of both HCPS and East Horsley Parish Council (EHPC). When the community acquired the first part of The Forest in 2002, the Surrey Wildlife Trust (SWT) were prepared to manage it but wanted a local volunteer warden –Des asked me. The major work in Great Ridings had been completed, with a small core of committed and experienced volunteers and a larger band of willing helpers. First, we cut paths, then we cleared the rhododendron in 4 winters. The management plan said that was the main task for the first 10 years.

Brian Austin, volunteer warden.

The SWT have been excellent, providing expertise for surveys and management and muscle A Nuthatch. for major tasks; installing the toad fence, creating two ponds and laying the bridges essential for access. They also do the vital tree safety work. When the HCPS successfully raised funds in 2010 to purchase the remaining 15 acres adjacent to the Highlands, 5 acres were covered in thick, tangled old rhododendron. Work parties of volunteers from HCPS, SWT and EHPC cleared most of it, and where fallen and unstable trees made volunteer work too dangerous, the SWT had the rest cleared professionally. In the strangeness of lockdown last year it was heartening to see so many people walking or running on the forest paths and the Horsley Jubilee Trail (which Des and I cut in 2002/3). Some were discovering for the treasure on their doorstep first time!

Pet vaccines Dogs and cats are just as prone as humans to picking up viruses, albeit different ones to us! This means that vaccinations and boosters are essential part of caring for your pet.

For Cats Core vaccinations include one for feline parvovirus and others to prevent cat flu. As with people, flu can spread rapidly and has many different strains, which means that it will never be completely wiped out. A cat flu vaccine, given from around eight weeks of age, will boost immunity. A booster vaccine should be given a year later.

Vaccinations can help protect your dog against some potentially fatal diseases.

For Dogs There are many diseases that dogs should be vaccinated against. However, most vaccines are combined, and the schedule starts when the puppy is about six weeks old. A Lyme disease jab should be given to adult dogs once a year, particularly if you walk in grassy or woodland areas.

Will This Hurt? Pets are generally given an injection underneath the skin at the scruff of the neck. Dogs’ kennel cough vaccine is usually administered as a nasal spray, however. The single-use disposable needle is very sharp and shouldn’t trouble your dog or cat too much.

Don’t Forget! Make a note in your diary to get these shots done regularly. It’s part of the cost of owning a pet and of course prevention is so much better – and cheaper – than cure.

West Horsley Evening WI We are a group of about 40 women, in our twenties to our nineties, from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of interests. We are just one of the 6000 WIs in the National Federation of Women’s Institutes, which has a membership of over 200,000 women. Our monthly meetings are currently held via zoom but ordinarily are at West Horsley Village Hall. We are a relaxed, friendly bunch who enjoy making new friends, listening to interesting speakers, exchanging ideas and skills, and working together on projects at a local or Zoey Ad_92x64.pdf 1 02/02/2015 10:35 national level.

A walk before the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the last few months, we’ve kept in touch and supported each other and enjoyed a wide range of expert talks via Zoom. We’ve picked fruit, made Gladrags squares, discussed ovarian cancer and CHD in women, racism, wildlife conservation, and we’ve raised money to help rural women in the Third World. We have learnt about vaccine development and about caring for mental health during COVID-19, watched cookery and craft demonstrations and “travelled” the length and breadth of the country to learn about history, art, literature and more. We are looking forward to a busy programme this year and to taking advantage of the opportunities our changing world will provide. Our meetings are on the first Tuesday of the month at 8pm.

Parish Council


In the Chair Both East and West Horsley Parish Councils have elected new Chairs in the past year. Cllr Robert Taylor (Chairman EHPC) and Cllr Elaine Best (Chairman WHPC) share a little of their backgrounds. How long have you been part of Horsley? Elaine: I moved to West Horsley from Brighton in December 1994 so coming up 27 years. Robert: I have lived in Horsley since 1983, some 37 years. What’s your favourite thing about living here? Robert: The combination of quiet calmness whilst feeling part of a village community. Elaine: I find it a privilege to live here – the ruralness, the peace and tranquility, the openness, the dark skies and the wildlife. How did you get involved with the parish council? Elaine: Most of my working life had been spent in London; attending and participating in “meetings” which were the norm! As I started to near retirement, I realised that I knew very few people in the village and worried I would be

Cllr Robert Taylor

lost without a meeting to attend. West Horsley PC had sent a flyer round asking for help in developing a Neighbourhood Plan. It sounded right up my street (so to speak!) and so my journey with the Parish Council began. Robert: I joined East Horsley Parish Council soon after I retired. I’d never had the time to volunteer for anything beforehand and thought it was about time I did my bit. What are your hopes for Horsley? Robert: How long do you have! The Neighbourhood Plan vision offers a good summary – that East Horsley should continue to flourish whilst preserving its fundamental character. Elaine: My fervent hope for West Horsley is that we can preserve its ruralness and character despite the major housing developments that GBC’s Local Plan have earmarked the village for and developers are keen to secure. I’m pleased all the hard work was done to get a Neighbourhood Plan adopted as this does have some influence – we would be in a weaker position without it. My other hope is that with the involvement of young people, we will establish a vibrant and dynamic Youth Council that helps ensure the voice of the younger generations living in the village is heard and influential. Holidays seem a dim and distant memory… but when you’re not in Horsley where do you like to go? Robert: My wife and I are very fond of the Austrian Alps. We’ve also enjoyed European river cruising in recent years – a very relaxing method of tourism. Elaine: I’m not a great one for wanting holidays—I’ve been to some fabulous places in the past —but walking the dogs in our local countryside is a joy. And, of course, we now have an Opera House in the Village set in beautiful grounds and of international standard, so my summer is best enjoyed attending the productions and relishing the wonderful ambience. I can be home in 10 minutes – perfect in my eyes!
