Nomad Theatre

the Nomads

The Nomads have been delighted to be able to bring community theatre back to East Horsley and the surrounding villages from May 2021. Since March last year and throughout lockdown the management committee have been preparing for a brand-new season of shows including the thought-provoking God of Carnage, a production by The Nomes Youth Theatre, a black comedy, Two Sisters (a classic Alan Ayckbourn), and to round the year off, Alice in Wonderland. It’s been a challenging year for everyone involved in performing arts. This local group have held regular virtual play readings and frequent online club nights, where members have enjoyed entertainment at a distance, including a murder mystery evening and two virtual variety nights. Of course, the question that many will be asking is how we can bring theatre back safely. The health and safety of the audiences at The Nomad Theatre, and their volunteers, is paramount for the long-term survival of the group. The chairman herself Moyra Brookes has undertaken additional Covid safety training and there have been several hours of planning to determine the best possible way to reopen. The plans include a one-way system, hands free ticket scanners, and of course, masks and sanitization. The auditorium has been set out with socially distanced seating and

The Nomads Jack and the Beanstalk production

the committee are doing everything in their power to ensure that audiences attending feel confident and certain they can enjoy the performance. All seats must be pre-booked with no tickets available on the door for performances and audience members must have the NHS track and trace app on their mobile device, and leave enough time before the start of the show to check-in with contact details. Despite the effects of the pandemic, it’s clear that The Nomads will continue to be a thriving group. Visitors to the theatre may be surprised to learn that it is entirely not-for-profit and run by volunteers. The committed team of volunteers put in time, effort and careful thought to create a programme of events that everyone can enjoy. Their story started in 1934, but the group really developed in 1957 when given some land to build a small Theatre. By 1994, they were running a weekly children’s drama workshop, and soon after were awarded a National Lottery grant to develop the building. In 2017 the group raised further funds to rebuild the old wooden hut which served as a bar into a brand-new multi-use area. You can find out about joining the membership or getting involved in the show by visiting www.nomadtheatre.com

Summer audio books The right story in the hands of the right narrator makes for a perfect afternoon lounging in the garden.

Klara and the Sun Kazuo Ishiguro (narrated by Sura Siu) As an artificial friend, Klara’s job is to be a companion for a human child. When she’s chosen by Josie, Klara’s world starts to open up. She can now see much more than just the view from the shop window. The darkness of this dystopian world is revealed through Klara’s naive viewpoint. While Josie is clearly very ill, it’s her friend Rick who is seen by society as disadvantaged, as he’s not a ‘lifted’ child. A quietly beautiful, thought-provoking story.

Cunning Women Elizabeth Lee (narrated by Taj Atwal) People rely on Sarah’s family for healing balms, protection and the odd curse, but it’s the seventeenth century and whispers of witchcraft are never far away. Sarah is used to being an outcast, but a forbidden relationship with a farmer’s son gives her a glimpse of how different her life could be. A gripping story and talented narrator make this a must-read for historical fiction fans.

The Stranger Times C.K. McDonnell (narrated by Brendan McDonald)

Night Watch Terry Pratchett (narrated by Stephen Briggs)

The Stranger Times newspaper reports on weird and wonderful tales from around the world – a dog eaten by a child’s drawing, a toilet possessed by the devil. While most of the tales are somewhat far-fetched, a very real supernatural danger could be a lot closer than the newspaper staff realise. If you love dry humour and urban fantasy, this audiobook will appeal.

Audiobooks might be having their heyday now, but it’s still worth delving into the back catalogue to discover gems like this one. Commander Sam Vimes is accidentally sent back in time, where he discovers he has the important job of stopping a rebellion from turning into a slaughter. He also needs to close down a torture chamber, clean up the city watch and keep his younger self from dying. Oh, and stop a murderous villain who travelled back with him. Easy…

Early Morning Riser Katherine Heiny (narrated by Kate Rudd) Jane meets Duncan soon after arriving in Boyne City. Falling for him is easy, but Duncan isn’t the settling down type. Everywhere Jane looks, there’s an ex with a prior claim to him. She does her best to move on, but a tragic accident sees Jane and Duncan taking on responsibilities neither of them planned for. An enjoyable taste of small-town American life by the author of Standard Deviation, Early Morning Riser is ideal for lazy summer afternoons.

Runaway Girls Jacqueline Wilson (narrated by Mandeep Dhillon) One for the kids… Lucy lives a financially privileged life in Victorian England but has little in the way of emotional comfort, so she runs away from home. Luckily for Lucy, she meets a street performer called Kitty, who has the wits to survive on London’s dangerous streets. The narrator does a skilful job of bringing an already engaging story to life. My twelve-year-old was hooked.

Registered Charity No. 1170049

Help us: Raise the Roof Horsley, Bookham & Leatherhead Riding for the Disabled Our local 100% volunteer run and funded charity wants to build a new fully accessible centre so up to 180 children and young adults with a disability can have access to horse riding every week Last year we received planning permission to build the new centre for our RDA at Badgers Farm in Effingham, we are almost at target with our fundraising but we still need to fund the roof - and we really hope you will help us!

To find out how you can help, or to make a donation please visit: www.horsleyandbookhamrda.co.uk Our charity is run by volunteers, if you have some free time and want to sign up to help during one of our riding session when the new centre opens or If you know a child or young person with a disability who would benefit from access to horse riding please visit our website for more details.

Riding for the Disabled My name is Lance, I am 9 years old, and I have Down syndrome. I want to tell you about my most favourite thing ever, horse riding!

Lance and Ella

Mummy took me to our local Riding for the Disabled centre when I was three years old, after my physiotherapist mentioned to her that it would be good for my core strength. Everyone thought it would take me a while to get used to the ponies but we made friends as soon as I met them.  I was smitten!  Riding days were Thursdays.  It was my favourite day of the week because me and my best friend Ella got to take a field trip from school and go riding.

haven’t ever had the chance to ride with the RDA yet. With the new centre, extra ponies and more volunteers, up to 180 children like me can ride, how amazing is that!

I am very sad at the moment, I haven’t been allowed to ride since the beginning of last year, and Mummy can’t tell me when I can go back. The pandemic meant the RDA had to close, because the volunteers need to help riders like me, get on and off the ponies, and walk alongside us in case we wobble a bit.

Lance (and Ella too!)

I really miss seeing the ponies, and getting to ride, if you are able to support the charity by making a donation to their ‘Raise the Roof’ campaign please visit the website for more information. lots of love


Mummy says the RDA lost their home, this made me even sadder, and that is why I have written this letter. Horsley, Bookham and Leatherhead RDA need your help. They have raised funds to start building a new, fully accessible riding centre at Badgers Farm in Effingham, but they need a bit more money to add the roof, so Ella, myself and all the other riders can start to ride again. Mummy says that there are lots of children, just like me, on something called a waiting list, who To advertise email sales@thehorsleydirectory.co.uk or call 01483 338 288

10 great reasons to shop local

Online shopping is wonderfully convenient and is booming. But recent research from Barclaycard Payments indicated that during the last year there was a significant uptick in local shopping too, particularly in food and drink specialist stores. You might think “well we couldn’t travel or eat out, so no surprises there”. However, the research also indicated that most people intend to continue to keep their custom local, even after restrictions are lifted. Here are a few of the reasons we have fallen in love with shops again.

For our community

For ourselves

Invested in Success Local businesses are owned and staffed by people who live in this area and have more of an emotional and financial investment in the community’s welfare and future.

More Than Shopping Regular patronage of small local outlets means the owner and staff will recognise you and get to know you. That social connection – which we’ve all sorely missed over the last year – is both important and highly enjoyable.

Character The unique character of your community is defined in part by the shops, pubs and restaurants. This contributes to your overall satisfaction with where you live and supports the value of your property. Keep it in the Community Locally owned businesses will often purchase from other local companies, service providers and farms. This brings two benefits: the money and jobs stay right here and there are fewer miles between the producer and the purchaser. Competition and Variety Towns of homogenised chain stores is a town without character. Competition is healthy and with no corporate mandate to adhere to, a small business is free to introduce new products and try different ideas. Paying Their Taxes The big conglomerates often play the system such that their taxes in the UK are a tiny percentage of the profits they make in this country. It’s legal, but it doesn’t mean it’s good. The local businesses are far more likely to be contributing their fair share into the UK’s coffers.

Touch and Feel Internet pictures are no substitute for seeing and touching products yourself. You are less likely to make a mistake if you’ve already handled your purchase. Easy to Return Goods Online shopping is easy. Online returns less so and often you have to pay to send back unwanted or faulty items. Personal Service You won’t be restricted to just what’s on the shelf. Ask the person behind the counter and not only can they offer advice, but they may be able to order it in for you too. A Chance to Socialise You don’t accidentally meet people sat on your sofa. Being out and about means there’s a chance of bumping into someone you know. What’s more, you’ll start seeing the same faces around so might find yourself with new friends too.

Disclaimer: Some pictures taken before facemasks were required. Hopefully, one day it’ll be like that again!

things you might not know about


West Horsley Community Speedwatch S PE E D LIMIT

We may look like French gilets jaunes but we are there to regulate the traffic, not to block it. We are the ten (soon to be twelve) male and female volunteer members of West Horsley’s Community Speedwatch team, who are out in the village practically every day of the year. Here are some common misconceptions corrected: 1. Look out – there’s a speed camera! Actually, that hair-dryer thingy only detects speeds. It doesn’t take photos or store data. 2. If I go faster I won’t get caught. Our handheld radar device has an 800-metre range, so will probably see you before you see it – plenty of time for us to record your vehicle’s speed, direction, make, model, colour and registration number. 3. Speedwatchers are just a bunch of selfappointed busy-bodies. Or, as we prefer to say, public-spirited citizens. All volunteers are appointed and trained by Surrey Police, who approve each Speedwatch session in advance. We are there only to provide the police with data. 4. You’d catch more speeders if you weren’t so visible. We are not out to ‘catch’ anyone, only to deter bad driving. We positively want drivers to see us and always place warning signs at a good distance from our checkpoints. The fewer vehicles that are over the speed limit, the better. 5. Aren’t you always in the same place? We currently have nine locations around West Horsley and constantly vary these and the timing of our checks. Each spot must be approved by a police road-safety officer.

6. You’ve no real teeth. We’ve no enforcement powers but are sometimes joined by police officers who do. While avoiding getting into discussion with motorists, we have some printed information to hand out. We sometimes get abuse from drivers, but much more often a thumbs-up. 7. Speedwatch is just a money-spinner for the police. First offenders get warning letters and are recorded on a national police database. Repeat offenders do face fines or worse penalties. 8. What about lorries? HGVs can look very fast and threatening on our narrow roads but it is actually quite rare to detect one speeding. 9. But you can’t record that many speeding drivers. We logged 119 last month doing well over the limit. Nationally, over 82,000 have been recorded in the past year. 10. What difference can you possibly make? People will always speed. It’s a matter of changing social norms. Attitudes to seat-belts, drink-driving, plastic bags and smoking show this can be done over time. Community Speedwatch is effective, sociable, interesting and useful to the community. If you’re over 18, have an hour or two a month to spare and would like to join the West Horsley team, please email WestHorsleyCSW@gmail.com.

Visit the UK’s National Forests

The New Forest

Whether you’re looking for a secluded escape or an adrenaline-fuelled adventure, reconnect with Mother Nature at one of the UK’s most enchanting forests. If there’s one thing the UK has no shortage of, it’s unspoilt woodland. Our forests are brimming with beauty and wildlife, making them perfect for nature watching, walking and mountain biking – or for just finding some peace and quiet. With so much of our country carpeted in thick woodland, you’ll be spoilt for choice on where to go. To get your imagination ticking, here are just three of the UK’s most impressive forests – and what to do while you’re there.

The New Forest, Hampshire With historical roots reaching as far back as 1079, the New Forest is far from new. Once a royal hunting preserve, it’s now one of the UK’s most visited national parks, spanning 140 miles of woodland, heathland and river valleys. Spend a long weekend in a thatched cottage, gaze up at giant sequoias, cycle through quaint villages, and meet the native ponies. Families flock to the ‘Peppa Pig’ themed Paultons Park, while Longdown Activity Farm

and the New Forest Wildlife Park are a popular spot for animal lovers. The New Forest is also conveniently close to the UK’s glorious south coast. Watch the boats come and go from the harbour town of Lymington, or walk along the beach to Hurst Castle from Milford-on-Sea.

The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire Step inside JRR Tolkien and JK Rowling’s magical worlds with a trip to Gloucestershire’s Forest of Dean. Its mysterious depths supposedly inspired Middle Earth, and key scenes in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were also filmed here. Dean’s history stretches back to medieval times, when it was used as a royal hunting forest. Today, a landscape of woodlands, rivers, hills

and valleys make it an adventurer’s playground. Recharge your batteries from a remote forest cabin before taking a high ropes course in the treetops or exploring the underground mine workings of Clearwell Caves. The area is also home to one of the best rivers in the country for canoeing and kayaking – the River Wye. Paddle down the river solo or join a relaxing boat cruise, learning about the landscape as you go.

ducal estates, many of which are open to the public. You could even time your visit around the annual Robin Hood festival, held in the forest every summer. Storytelling, sword fighting, dancing, and food, drink and craft stalls ome together to create a fun atmosphere for all ages.

Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire It’s hard to ignore Robin Hood when you’re in Sherwood Forest, with countless pubs, lodges and even a festival named after him. But the forest is much more than an ancient stomping ground for its most famous hero. Many visit to see the gigantic oak trees, namely The Major Oak, which is believed to be 1,100 years old and the biggest in Britain! Explore the hundreds of acres of ancient woodland here on foot or by bike, ticking off the Robin Hood statues along the way. Its history as a royal hunting forest means it’s also dotted with grand

Covid-19 Symptoms


At the start of the pandemic, we were warned to look for a new continuous cough or a high temperature as signs of having caught the virus. This was soon followed by “a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste”. More recently, medical professionals have seen soaring reports of other health issues.

Skin changes

Diarrhoea and vomiting

The most common skin changes include a flat, red rash covered with small bumps, discoloured areas on the fingers and toes (Covid toes) and hives. Although not recognised as symptoms by the Government or the NHS, scientists are saying they should be included.

This could be dismissed by the sufferer as ‘something they ate’ which indeed it might be, but if this is followed by fever or respiratory symptoms, it could be the virus. Anecdotal evidence says this is more common in children.


Fairly rare and is more likely to occur alongside another more common Covid signs.

The British Tinnitus Association has reported a surge in the number of people accessing its services, with a 256% increase in the number of web chats from May to December 2020 compared with the same period in 2019. Calls to its helpline also rose by 16%.

Covid Tongue In this condition, the tongue may start to appear white and patchy.


Remember these are just symptoms and may be unrelated to the virus. A Covid-19 test is the only way to be certain one way or the other.

Dear Friends The Global Pandemic has provided many people with an opportunity to take stock and to re-evaluate what is important in our lives. This is true of spiritual matters as well as the work we do and family life. We have seen considerable interest in the Christian faith with increasing numbers joining local churches for on-line worship. There is much interest from people, requesting opportunities for baptism and confirmation. We have enjoyed an Alpha course with our friends from St Mary’s West Horsley and All Saint’s Ockham. In September we are going to have an opportunity to hear about the Christian faith from the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. He will be visiting the Diocese of Guildford from 24-27 September. He will speak and take questions during a number of key aimed at people who are interested in the Christian faith but who would not describe themselves as Christians. If you are interested in attending one of these events please let me know. We are hoping that as people listen to Archbishop Justin they will be inspired to join us to find out more about what it means to follow Christ. After the visit, the churches of St Martin’s, St Mary’s and All Saints will host a course called Christianity Explored. Christianity Explored is a seven-session course that gives people the time and space to think about the big questions of life and to explore the life of the man at the heart of the Christian faith. As we explore Mark’s Gospel, we will be finding out who Jesus is, what he has done for us and what it means to follow him. Please do email me if you would like more details. With every blessing this summer and beyond. PS: I hope you enjoy some summer fun by completing the wordsearch on the next page.

With every blessing Renos

Behind the scenes at

Grange Park Opera Surrey

Each summer Grange Park Opera takes up its residency at West Horsley Place and a lot of locals get involved - here some of the team share why they like working with the opera and the highlights of the season:

• Alison Boothby, Volunteer How long have you lived in the area? We moved to Hatchford from London 17 years ago to bring our children up in a more rural environment. No regrets: we love it here! How and why did you get involved with GPO?

It’s hugely rewarding being part of the The Theatre In The Woods team - whether that's on meet & greet, stewarding around the gardens, or ushering. I know that without our team of volunteers the show just can't go on! We are there to welcome, to reassure, direct and assist. Mostly it's all pretty straightforward requiring little more than a genuine smile, the desire to help others and some common sense. But of course, we do have the odd incident to deal with! What song would you like to sing on stage? Goodness, I think stage fright might get the better of me and I really should leave the singing on stage to the professionals! But if you really pushed me.... I am Woman, by Helen Reddy. Perhaps Wasfi would join me?! What delicacy would be in your opera picnic? Fresh spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce. Oh, and Coronation Chicken of course! Grange Park Opera

Right from the start I thought it was hugely exciting to have Grange Park Opera establishing its new home on our doorstep, not only helping to breathe new life into West Horsley Place, but bringing world class entertainment with it.

I wanted to show my support for their ambitious project and right from the first season I jumped at the chance to volunteer.

• Jasmin Walker, Restaurant Supervisor Grange Park Opera

How long have you lived in the area? I have lived in West Horsley since I was 5 years old. How and why did you get involved with GPO? I got involved with GPO in the summer of 2018 after I had finished my GCSEs. I started as a waitress and progressed to helping with preperformance champagne and canapés. This year I have been given the role of Supervisor which is a very valuable opportunity as I am studying marketing and management at university so it is useful to be able to put into practice what I am learning. I also hope to go into a career in the events industry. I love working with other people from the village and making sure all the customers have the best experience. What song would you like to sing on stage? I think I’ll just stick to the front of house roles! What delicacy would be in your opera picnic? Strawberries and brownies all the way.

• Paul Fair, Volunteer We moved to the area from Brockenhurst 35 years ago with my return to a London based job. How and why did you get involved with Grange Park Opera? I am a member of Horsley Choral Society (HCS) and also Rockchoir in Dorking. While opera singing was not my first love when Grange Park Opera opened I grabbed the opportunity to experience more of the genre by volunteering. A wonderful opera house in a glorious setting and a very short drive from home. Great to be amongst so many people enjoying the opera and the gardens with their friends. I now appreciate opera much more! What song would you sing on stage Who is Sylvia by Shearing and Shakespeare currently being rehearsed by HCS or Smile (music originally by Charlie Chaplin with words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons). The latter has a wonderful melody and words which are a recipe for a happier life.

• Judy Young, Stage Management How long have you lived in the area? After a stint abroad, we stuck a pin in the map for our return and moved to the area in 2008. How and why did you get involved with GPO? I’m a Stage Manager - and so what an amazing thing that a beautiful opera house was built in the very village where I live. It has been a bonus to be able to do my job so close to home! What’s the highlight of an opera season for you? Returning to stage manage an opera for the first time in many years, I am reminded of the huge privilege of being in a rehearsal room with gifted singers and exquisite music. What song would you like to sing on stage? There’s a reason I wear black and lurk in the wings, not much would get me on stage… other than with my local community choir. For the last year we have all been isolated singing at home using zoom to connect - I’d like to be on that stage singing Elbow’s One Day Like This with all of them!

(Old Age Pets) With regular exercise, a good diet and lots of love and care, your dog or cat can make it to a ripe old age without too many problems. But just like us, minor ailments creep in and their onset needs to be watched and managed. Exercise Although they may be a bit slower, senior dogs do still need regular exercise. Just don’t overdo it, otherwise not only will you be carrying your pet home, they will suffer for several days afterwards.

Hearing & Sight If your dog or cat appears to be ignoring you when you call them, it could be a bit of hearing loss. Get used to catching their eye when speaking to them. If their sight is going, take care to approach them quietly and slowly so that they aren’t startled.

Blue Cross

Older cats need to be encouraged to move, and scheduling time to play every day is every bit as important as walks are for dogs.


Toilet Access They may also need to go to the toilet more frequently and be unable to hold on as long between visits. Give them easy access to their toilet area and/or let them out more frequently. Aches & Pains Signs of being less agile are to be expected but if they struggle to get up or can’t manage stairs or pavements, talk to your vet as there may be treatments that can help.

THE ROTARY CLUB OF Bookham & Horsley Making a Difference in the Community There seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel and, barring any major setbacks, we seem to have a roadmap that will take us back to a new normality. Since lockdown began, we have continued to meet each week albeit over Zoom. Luckily, our Club members and guests have adapted to this new way of meeting, but we are all looking forward to getting together again face-to-face in June or July. Our weekly Zoom meetings have seen a wide range of interesting speakers combined with our monthly business meetings where we discuss how we can continue to help the local community even when all fundraising activity has been cancelled.

Rotary looking forward to the end of the tunnel! If you like what you read about Rotary, why not take a look at our website and/or call us, or simply join our mailing list for occasional updates. Once normal service is resumed, you are very welcome to come along to a trial meeting, we’d love to see you! For all details visit www.bookhamandhorsley.rotaryweb.org or contact our secretary Mark Secker on 01372 458733 or mark.secker@outlook.com Steve Gapper

EVENTS: all events over the past twelve months were cancelled, apart from our Search for Santa competition that we ran in conjunction with local shops. We are starting to plan events for the rest of this year and the beginning of next. We are hopeful that:

• our Gala Night will take place in October • Cycle Sportif – a new event for us – is

Defibrillator – saving lives on Box Hill

planned for September.

• Bridge Night – will recommence in October at the Old Barn Hall.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT: Our charity funding supports many local and global initiatives, as many of you know. During the current emergency we were still able to support families at Christmas time by providing vouchers that could be used in local shops. A number of other grants have been made to support local causes.
