Fresh Starts

Give your New Year’s resolutions a helping hand... Everyday Cook Donal Skehan

Running Made Easy Lisa Jackson and Susie Whalley Whether you’ve got your mind set on running a marathon this year, or you just want to complete Couch to 5K, this book could prove as invaluable as the right pair of trainers. Within its pages, you’ll find plenty of tips, running plans and advice, mainly aimed at beginner runners. Perhaps most importantly, however, you’ll also find lots of motivational real-life stories of people who’ve used running to dramatically improve their lives.

The Book of Hopes Edited by Katherine Rundell This book brings together poems, short stories, essays and illustrations – all designed to ‘comfort, inspire and entertain’. It’s perfect for dipping into on a coffee break or when you’re in need of a moment of solace. While it’s aimed at children, there’s no reason why The Book of Hopes can’t be enjoyed just as much by adults. A beautiful book to give or receive.

Is your New Year’s resolution to cook more meals from scratch? Most of the recipes in Everyday Cook are designed to take you from fridge to table within half an hour. (Some dishes can be whipped up in just fifteen minutes.) There are also meals to freeze for days when you really don’t have the energy to cook. The recipes might be simple, but they’re far from boring. Think Cheat’s Spring Risotto, Kung Pao Chicken and Aubergine, and Spicy Prawn Aglio e Olio.

The Wildlife Gardener Kate Bradbury British wildlife has declined dramatically over the last few decades. Once common species, such as the hedgehog, are under threat. If you want to play a role in helping to reverse the decline, this book is a good starting point. It’s packed with practical tips on encouraging all manner of wildlife into your garden. You’ll find step-by-step projects, ideas for plants and plenty of gorgeous photography. And you’ll also be taught how to identify some of your new garden visitors.

Farrow & Ball Recipes for Decorating Joa Studholme Planning to refresh your home in 2022? Before you go anywhere near a paintbrush, get some advice and inspiration from the experts. Farrow & Ball’s no-nonsense guide covers everything from creating different moods using colour, to tackling common problems such as dark rooms and small spaces. There are several case studies and tons of photos. Whether you’re craving an ultra-modern living room or want to bring some countrycottage comfort to your kitchen, this book is for you

The Sustainable(ish) Living Guide Jen Gale Going green can feel pretty daunting, but this book sets out small steps we can all take to help combat climate change, reduce plastic and cut waste. It’s about making more conscious, informed choices – from small swaps that you’ll barely notice to more impactful life changes. There are no lectures, no guilt trips and no preaching – just relatable, easyto-read advice and ideas.

Going green


can be simple, save you money and does make a difference Can you make a difference to climate change and reduce plastic pollution in the grand scheme of things, or do you wonder what you can do at home to help? As part of their COP26 coverage, Channel 5 News featured my family in a piece called ‘Living as green a life as possible’, where they followed my family around East Horsley and discussed ways in which I could reduce the plastic coming into my home, reduce my food waste and reduce my family’s carbon footprint. If a change is easy and saves you money, would you make it permanent? Yes, of course! So, here are my favourite tips we discussed that are easy to implement and many of them save you money too.

Reduce your plastic waste Start watching what plastic you are throwing away and then look to see if there is an alternative. Easy wins include reusable shopping and produce; shopping where you have more plastic free options, such as a greengrocer; saving containers and using a zero-waste shop. Greenwise, for example lets you fill up on everything from plastic free cereal, cleaning products, and reusable/washable bags for snacks instead of using snack multi-packs. You can also use e-cloths for cleaning, wax cloths for wrapping up food, and reusable boxes and bags for gifts.

Article by Kari Sherman, co-founder of Tom Pom Organic baby food, blogger, member of 1% for the Planet. She is a local resident in East Horsley.

Reducing your carbon consumption An electric car can save you money in taxes, maintenance and fuel. If this isn’t an option, consider changing your energy tariff to a green one. Ensure your house is as well-insulated as possible and install a modern boiler. Shopping in season and buying fruit, veg and meat from your local shops saves on transport emissions. Try to group your online shopping deliveries where possible, or head to the local shops instead! Being more eco does not mean you need to change your whole lifestyle, but making small and permanent changes that suit you will make a difference. If we create a demand for ecoproducts and services, that will force changes to larger businesses. Finally, the famous ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ slogan is still very much true, but focusing on the ‘reduce’ will make the biggest impact to create changes for a sustainable future.

Reducing food waste Throwing away food wastes money, and the energy used to grow, manufacture and transport it. Planning, based on what you already have, saves food going off and with a clear shopping list, saves you buying things you don’t need. Organise your cupboards so you know what you have. If you have fruit, veg or leftovers that might be wasted, freeze them, preferably in a reusable bag, and use it in smoothies or soups, to enjoy it at a later date.

Channel 5 news presenter Claudia-Liza Vanderpuije (left) discusses zero-waste shopping with Kari (right) at her home in East Horsley.

A Green Conscience


in The Horsleys Community Garden Grace and Flavour, Horsleys’ community vegetable garden, situated within a partially walled garden off Ripley Lane, West Horsley, is an organic, ‘no dig’ garden which aims to be as ‘green’ as possible. We are peat-free. At present we are using Sylvagrow peat-free compost as the starting medium for growing most of our vegetables. Unfortunately, it is still too easy for the amateur gardener to purchase peat based compost as our garden centres are still full of it, but peatfree is beginning to have a greater presence. Soon, we believe, legislation will require ALL compost to be peat-free so why not start now? We have set up a composting station to produce beautiful organic compost. For some years we have used the produce from our wormeries, in addition to having a comfrey bed, to create our own liquid feed. The garden does not use artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Our ‘no dig’ garden is mainly fed by manure we get from a local farmer which is spread across the beds during the winter months. The garden also has ‘rewilded’ some areas of the garden, planting trees and hedgerows to encourage wildlife. A wildlife pond has been developed within the garden walls, and we have a variety of different sized bird boxes. Wood piles provide homes for insects and bees, and we grow a wide range of flowers which attract beneficial insects. However there are areas we would like to improve, mainly in the use of plastic. We re-use supermarket containers and have stopped using

plastic bags. To protect crops we use fleece which has a short life but at present there is no practical alternative. Enviromesh, which we use to protect the crop from pests, has a very long life (10yrs +) and the modules we use are plastic and very strong so can be reused many times. Weed suppressant is used to prevent and kill weeds. Hopefully with the drive to produce new, greener products we may be able to use less plastic in the garden. If you work in the community garden not only do you have access to beautiful fresh organic food, but also the fruit, vegetables and flowers you take home will have very low food miles. We do run a small shop in the summer months but we would love to introduce new members to the benefits provided from the garden throughout the whole year.

A Plea from Effingham Scouts


To the people of The Horsleys: a plea for help from your local Scout Group.

future of some sections, or perhaps indeed the entire group, will be in jeopardy.

1st Effingham Scout Group was founded in 1933, with Sir Barnes Wallis once Group President. Hundreds of local children have been members of the Group and experienced all that Scouting has to offer: learning new skills, seeing new experiences and making friends outside of conventional school groups. Increasingly in this digital age of devices, gaming and social media, Scouting offers a refreshing change, although our HQ is equipped with fast WiFi and audio-visual equipment for when it’s needed.

So, whether you are a retired Scouter thinking about returning, have some free time, or are new to the movement, we would love to hear from you. There are no entry requirements; full training and support will be provided.

Our group in 2021 is in a very good financial position, which has enabled us to fund improvements to our HQ.

We have vacancies across all sections: Beavers (children aged 6-8, Monday evenings) Cubs (8-10 1/2, Thursdays) Scouts (10 1/2-13, Wednesdays) We welcome all offers of help no matter what your background is nor how many hours you can give, it doesn’t even need to be a regular commitment. Becoming a leader brings a number of benefits; increasing your confidence, learning new skills and meeting new people, all whilst having fun and passing on skills for life to young people. We also offer a discounted membership to any young people you either parent or care for. We should be grateful if you could share this article with friends, family and neighbours, in order to help us secure the future of 1st Effingham Scout Group. Please do get in touch via

However, reviewing the history of 1st Effingham we see a theme of lack of leaders to support our young people. Currently only four members of the scouting team are from Effingham – both reliant and thankful to the wider Leatherhead district for volunteers to enable our sessions to run effectively and of course safely. However, this is not sustainable long term, and we are in desperate need for more adult help to enable our group to grow and flourish for another 90 years! Sadly, if we don’t have enough adults coming forward, the groups/1steffinghamscouts/

Friday 25th March 2022 at 7.00pm Dear Friends It is over 30 years since Terry Waite was released from captivity in Beirut. As a member of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s private staff he negotiated the release of Hostages from Iran and Libya. Whilst in Lebanon trying to do the same he was captured and spent almost five years in strict solitary confinement.

Matthew Rickard and Terry Waite On his release he decided to devote his time to humanitarian activities and founded Hostage International ( and helped in the establishing of Emmaus for the homeless ( Today he is President of both charities and is involved with many other organisations working with those on the margins of society. In captivity, without books or papers and in strict solitary confinement, he realised that to keep alive he had to keep mentally active. He wrote his first book in his head as he never had pen or paper. There was no music but as a lover of music he played in his mind that which he remembered from the past. ‘Music and good language’ he said, ‘have the capacity to breathe harmony into the soul’. In an evening of words and music, Terry will share something of his experience of those solitary years and also read short extracts from his writings. These will be interspersed with music played by Matthew Rickard on the piano. Matthew studied at the University of Surrey and the Royal Academy of Music, where he specialised in piano accompaniment. His teachers included Clive Williamson and Michael Dussek. He currently enjoys a busy freelance career as both performer and teacher. Matthew is accompanist to Horsley Choral Society and Farnham Youth Choir and regularly works with many other local groups. Matthew has recorded several CDs for the EM Records and Toccata Classics labels and has also played live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune programme. This will be a reflective evening designed to enable us to experience a deeper inner harmony which this world needs so urgently. Proceeds from the evening will go towards supporting Terry in his humanitarian activities both at home and overseas as well as covering expenses incurred for the evening. Interval refreshments are in aid of St Martin’s Church. We are expecting this to be a very popular event and tickets are on sale via our parish website.

The business

of pets

According to the Office for National Statistics, this represented an increase in spending of around 170 per cent within a fifteen-year period. It seems that most of us will lavish not only attention on our animals but also provide them with activities and enrichment as a matter of course. Naturally, it is man’s best friend, the dog, that remains the most popular pet, closely followed by cats and, since the Covid-19 lockdown, indoor fish. As pet love has grown, so has the associated industry. Emerging trends show that we now show far more concern over nutrition for our pets than ever before. There are new food brands emerging with increasing frequency, rising to the challenge of providing good nutrition including supplements and superfoods. Pet owners are more likely to take their animals to an array of activities. Dogs, being the most portable of pets, now benefit from doggy swimming pools, a range of classes such as scent work and agility, fun fields for safe play and animal-friendly cafes. Even the National Trust has introduced a new ‘three pawprint rating’ to show at a glance the most dogfriendly venues. There is clearly a significant financial commitment that goes hand in hand with pet ownership. Pets are no longer consigned to the kitchen – they’re truly part of the family.


In the UK, we spent almost £8 million on pets and related products back in 2020.

Ramen Tofu Noodle Bowl

This is such a light, refreshing soup and lowcarb too, thanks to the addition of vegetable noodles. You could also use kelp noodles or regular noodles instead. Serves Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 14 minutes


Use a spiraliser to make long noodles from the courgette; alternatively use a swivel potato peeler to create long strips. Set aside. If using kelp or regular noodles prepare according to instructions and drain well.


Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and add the tofu. Sauté for 5 minutes over a mediumhigh heat until the tofu is lightly golden. Remove from the pan and set aside.


Heat the remaining oil in a pan and sauté the spring onion and garlic for 1–2 minutes over a medium heat. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Add the pak choi and mushrooms and simmer for 5 minutes until the pak choi has wilted. Stir in the miso paste, tamari soy sauce, beansprouts, tofu and courgette (or other) noodles and stir briefly. Turn off the heat and allow the soup to sit for 1–2 minutes to allow the noodles to soften.


Ladle the soup into bowls and scatter over the sesame seeds and coriander to serve.

Ingredients • 1 medium courgette (or use 150g kelp noodles or cooked regular noodles) • 1½ tbsp olive oil • 450g firm tofu, drained and cut into 2cm cubes • 2 spring onions, finely chopped • 2 garlic cloves, crushed • 600ml vegetable stock • 2 pak choi, roughly chopped • 150g shiitake mushrooms, sliced • 1 tbsp white miso paste • 2 tbsp tamari soy sauce • Handful of beansprouts To serve • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

Nutrition per serving: 176kcal, fat 10.6g (of which saturates 3g), carbohydrates 5.4g (of which sugars 3.7g), protein 14.5g

Bookham Talking Newspaper

Among other sources, material for the Talking Newspaper comes from the Leatherhead Advertiser, Bookhams Bulletin and the Bookham Resident’s Associaton. Bookham Talking Newspaper (BTN), is a well regarded audio service and is looking for new users. Your widely praised local audio newspaper is available free of charge to any blind or partially sighted person living in the Ashtead/ Leatherhead/Bookham and the Horsleys areas. We would love to hear from anyone wanting to use this free service, directly, or via their carers or family. Of course, others might enjoy local news via audio – see right for web access.

who explain how to use it. Having listened to an edition, the pen drive is sent back to us for re-use. Alternatively, all editions are now freely available via our website, for those able to access the internet easily. Our website explains the service fully and provides access to the latest recordings and contact details. Please visit us to put forward a new listener, or simply to find out more:

During the pandemic we had to close for several months. During this enforced ‘downtime’ our volunteer team kept in touch with our 30 or so service users, which was widely appreciated. A short poll of our users also told us that the service was widely enjoyed and missed, and feedback also provided pointers for new content ideas, which we have acted upon since restarting. The BTN is a now a fortnightly free service run by volunteers. It uses the Royal Mail freepost service to deliver a USB drive every two weeks, which users simply plug in to a special player, provided free by the charity via a home visit,

Seasonal Food January Over half a million people registered with the charity Veganuary in January 2021 to try the challenge to cut out all animal products. Many more people will be trying again in 2022 and even if you can’t quite stick to the full 31 days, introducing more vegan food into your diet is good for the planet and your health. As luck would have it, there are many of the best ingredients in season right now.

Cauliflower Such a versatile vegetable, cauliflower can be used in many unexpected ways. Slice a whole cauliflower into three to four vegetable ‘steaks’, then roast them in the oven in a little sauce or marinade to add flavour. You’ll have a healthy meal that is low in calories and carbs. Cauli-rice fits into every dieting regime. This is where you blitz the florets in a food processor until they resemble couscous grains. They can be cooked with a little water in the microwave, but even more delicious is to drizzle a little olive oil on a baking sheet and spread the grains out. Roast at 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6 for 12-15 mins.

Walnuts Mainly vegetablebased meals can sometimes lack the texture you might be used to with meat. Chop up some walnuts and mix them into almost anything to add a delicious crunch.

Green Vegetables Cabbage, kale, Brussel sprouts (not just for Christmas!), chard and leeks are all in season and are full of vitamins, yet low in fat and carbohydrate. You need to be creative as a bowl of cabbage on its own will sabotage any well-meaning food plan, but the internet is full of good vegan-based recipes including these ingredients.

Citrus fruits High in sugar so limit how much you have, but nobody ever overdoes their grapefruit intake – at least not without lots of sugar on top – although the juice is too easily overconsumed.

Legumes (pulses) Chickpeas, lentils, peas and peanuts are all part of the same family and are rich in fibre and protein. They aren’t really in season in January but they keep so well either dried or tinned that you don’t need to worry about the time of year to use them.

Mushrooms From little buttons to the big portobello ones, each type of mushroom adds to a dish in both flavour and texture. The stems of King Oyster mushrooms have an appearance and texture very similar to scallops when cooked.
