Shop local this Christmas ...and support the local community

by Judy Young

2019 has been a year where the face of shopping continues to change.

Here are some good reasons to shop local:

In Horsley we are lucky to still have a strong local centre with a variety of shops – and our shopkeepers work hard to engage with the community.

• Local spending supports local people who live and work in our village

• It’s less stressful

The Horsley Village Christmas Fair will be on Saturday 7th December from 11am–3pm at Station Parade. Alongside the festive atmosphere created by the shops there will be a treasure hunt, mulled wine, curry tasters – and a visit from Santa.

• You will find some unique gifts • Taking part in local events helps to build community • Walk to the shops and get some exercise too! Come along and join in the festive cheer, bag some gifts for under your tree whilst celebrating the community spirit of your village.

It’s panto time... oh yes it is!

by Judy Young

Going on an outing to the panto is a Christmas tradition for many families but for one local family the tradition runs deeper. The Nomad Theatre is truly a family affair. This year the panto director and producer team are a father-daughter team, Andrew Hamel-Cooke and Annabelle Lawrence, whilst behind the scenes, props are led by wife and mum, Jennie Hamel-Cooke. Andrew trained at Italia Conti in London and went on to work in professional theatre, including the role of Pantomime Dame starring alongside Darren Day in Robinson Crusoe; Jennie was a broadcast assistant with the BBC in her early career. Their relationship began at Addlestone Folk Club and both of them have been involved with dance and amateur dramatics for all of their lives. They have two daughters - Annabelle and Tori who grew up immersed in dance, singing and music. The Nomads is like a big extended family and the Hamel-Cookes are excited to be leading a talented cast with an age range from 8–84. The principal boy is played by Millie Franks who has been with the Nomads from a very young age and graduates to the lead role this year. Jennie will be busy with the props department - in general, the show is a great challenge for the backstage team who will be creating a beanstalk that will grow before the audience’s eyes, building giant kitchen units, a giant hand and head. Look out for the Hamel-Cooke family at the Station Parade Christmas event, splendidly dressed in costume. The pantomime is a popular event and it is likely that tickets will sell out quickly – so don’t miss your chance to book your seats.

Community teamwork in the Horsleys by Judy Young

Throughout 2019 many of the community groups in Horsley have been working together to make a difference. In late summer, by kind invitation from the Mary Roxburghe Trust, the West Horsley Evening WI visited the beautiful West Horsley Place orchard to gather crops of apples and pears and put them to good use. Some of the harvest was used for traditional WI baking and preserves which went on to be sold at community events. Meanwhile some were given to Grace and Flavour who used them in the tithing boxes - a scheme whereby 10% of the summer produce from the garden is gifted to members of the community. Finally volunteer drivers from the Wheel of Care teamed up to get the boxes distributed around the village. At the beginning of 2019 the WI hosted a West Horsley link together tea gathering together around 30 local groups with the aim to promote community engagement and partnerships. They hope to be able to encourage more opportunities for groups to work together as we enter into a new decade. The local West Horsley WI meets on the first Tuesday of each month, 8pm at West Horsley Village Hall. Grace and Flavour, The Horsleys community garden has volunteer groups on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Wheel of Care is active throughout the week. New members and volunteers for all organisations always welcome.

For giving Whether you’re buying for someone else, looking for ideas for yourself, or plan to buy a book, read it and then wrap it up (we won’t tell), there’s plenty to choose from this month. Banksy You Are an Acceptable Level of Threat Gary Shove & Patrick Potter This is so much more than just a coffee-table-worthy photography collection. For a start, it’s snort-out-loud funny. It’s been updated for 2019 and now spans Banky’s career, from the early 90s to 2018. There are anecdotes, irreverent biographical references and a few hundred photos to pore over.

The Testaments Margaret Atwood The Testaments picks up a few years after The Handmaid’s Tale ended. It weaves together the stories of three women – Daisy, born in Gilead but raised in Canada; Agnes Jemima, who’s desperate to escape the life set out for her by her stepparents; and the infamous Aunt Lydia. We won’t spoil it by giving away too much of the storyline, but it’s fair to say that it’s everything you hoped for and more. Perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale (book or TV series).

The Corset Laura Purcell

Little Robin Red Vest Jan Fearnley

Ruth Butterham is on trial for murdering her mistress. She confessed to the crime, but is she guilty or delusional? The more that wealthy prison visitor Dorothea Truelove hears of the beaten and broken Ruth’s tale, the less sure she is of who the real villain is in the story. Is Ruth the killer, is there another murderer at large or, as Ruth seems to believe, is the real culprit something far more unlikely? Gripping historical crime fiction sure to appeal to fans of Sarah Waters.

This classic picture book is now 20 years old. It tells the story of how the robin got his red vest. (Spoiler: Father Christmas gave it to him as a reward for the robin giving away his own woolly vests.) A great story, beautiful illustrations and a feel-good message to top it all off. What more could a young child want from a book on Christmas morning?

Burn After Writing (Teen Edition) Rhiannon Shove A journal with a difference, Burn after Writing invites teens to answer a series of questions to paint a picture of who they are, from ‘The song that makes me want to dance’ to ‘If I had a brainwashing machine, I would use it to’ and ‘Something I do that makes me feel proud of myself’. Perfect for 11 to 14 year olds. (The adult’s version is worth a look too.)

Veg Jamie Oliver Buying for a vegetarian? Or just someone who enjoys healthy food that tastes great and doesn’t take hours to prepare? This book is for them. There are twists on new classics, such as Veggie Moussaka and Vegan Lasagne, and plenty of more inspired dishes that could soon become old favourites, like Masala Stuffed Peppers, Pulled Mushroom Sandwich and Crispy Cauliflower Katsu. Some take a few minutes to make from scratch, while others are more suitable for chilled-out Sunday brunches or dinners with friends.

A Horsley Christmas Tree Festival by Judy Young

Over the first weekend in December St Martin’s Church will be hosting a Christmas Tree Festival for the Horsley community to enjoy. There’s a lot of theories about the origin of Christmas trees. Some say it comes from a pagan ritual; they did indeed worship trees, but their tree of choice was most likely the oak and not limited to Christmas. Others say it’s a Victorian tradition - but it didn’t begin with them.

An early recording of a Christmas tree dates to 1419 in a German town called Freiburg where local bakers put a tree in the town square and covered it with baked goods for the children to help themselves to. The tradition arrived in the United Kingdom with Queen Charlotte, the German wife of George III and then in 1848 the Illustrated London News published a picture of Queen Victoria with her German consort Prince Albert around their tree and the fashion for Christmas trees spread throughout society. Soon every home in Britain had a tree bedecked with candles, sweets, fruit, homemade decorations and small gifts. In recent years, Christmas Tree Festivals have become increasingly popular as a way of bringing communities together, bringing local groups together, raising money for charity, sharing the joy of Christmas and – most importantly – encouraging a bit of fun! So if you have never been to a Christmas Tree Festival, make sure to go this year and add some extra joy and sparkle to your Christmas festivities.



The root of the tradition lies far back in medieval times when Christians would make plays recounting the stories of the bible. These plays were called mystery plays and they were told all over Europe - with different stories being told at different times of the year. During the reformation these plays were mostly stopped, however one small group of Germans managed to keep the traditions going. They continued to perform the

‘paradise play’ often told on Christmas Eve telling the story of the creation of humankind from the creation of Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden up to the birth of Messiah in Bethlehem. Central to the play was the paradise tree, a fir tree decorated with red apples.

You can visit Horsley’s own Christmas Tree Festival at St Martin’s church on the 6th and 7th December from 9am–7pm. Come along and see the community trees on display - with mulled wine and music to enjoy from 4–7pm on the Friday evening and a Christmas Fair in the Canterbury Rooms (behind St Martin’s) from 10.00–1.00 on Saturday 7th December. Refreshments served in the church at the same time.

Reverse advent


by Judy Young

As we start the countdown to Christmas and start counting up gifts for our family and friends – here’s an invitation to accept a small challenge to do something for people for whom Advent holds little hope or expectation.

A campaign to support local foodbanks

This is our fourth year of doing a community advent collection in the Horsleys - and each year we have gathered over 2 tonnes of food. This may sound like a lot, however, currently Cobham Foodbank distributes around 3 tonnes of food each month - and that’s just one of three foodbanks in our local area. Hugh Bryant, general manager of Cobham foodbank reports that since the advent of Univeral Credit, despite our status as one of the wealthiest boroughs in the country, demand for their services has seen a 52% increase in the local area - well above the national average increase of 30-40%. Foodbank operations depend on the generosity of the local community who provide an important source of donations - people who give both food and money and people who volunteer. From the beginning of Advent, you are invited to keep a box where each day an item can be put aside that would be suitable for use by a local foodbank organisation. Boxes could be shared by families, by neighbours and friends or by local workplaces and shops.

The campaign is widely supported throughout the village with local shops eager to join in with collection boxes. Donations will be collected at the Wheelhouse, East Lane, West Horsley, KT24 6LQ on 14th December 2019 from 9am - 12noon. Food will then be distributed on Monday 16th December to North Guildford Foodbank, the Salvation Army and Cobham Area Foodbank. So if you can – please get filling a box and join us in making a small difference this Christmas.

About Cobham Foodbank “The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.” We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide a week's nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

From the Rector... It has been an amazing year at St Martin’s so far and we have much to be grateful for. These are just a few highlights:

We launched our Year of Prayer and saw the introduction of a number of prayer initiatives, services and a number of people completed the Prayer Course (see

We introduced our new vision to ‘Build Faith, Hope and Love’ and all that we do and plan for the future will be the outworking of that vision.

The church has a new sound and lighting system and we are continuing to make improvements which treasure its history whilst at the same time making it fit for current and future purposes.

• •

Our new organ was dedicated by Bishop Jo, Bishop of Dorking.

We’ve increased the number of charities we support local, nationally and internationally.

Despite church attendance nationally showing signs of decline our church continues to attract new people. Several people completed the Alpha course and a healthy number of adults and young people were recently confirmed.

Both the Community Hall (Forrest Road) and the Canterbury Rooms (at the church) are seeing greater use by various community groups and individuals.

None of the above would be possible without the support of my ministry colleagues Sandy and Rosemary, the churchwardens and an army of people who help ensure St Martin’s continues to flourish and serve the community. As Christmas approaches, we are reminded that Jesus came to us in the form of an innocent baby. He was often referred to as Immanuel which literally means ‘God with us’. God in the thick of it. He meets us in our joy, our pain and suffering. We are invited to respond. As the words of the Carol say ‘where meek souls will receive him still, the dear Christ enters in. I wish every member of our community every blessing for a wonderful Christmas and a new year which offers you faith, hope and love.

Christmas decorations that can harm pets The glitz and glitter of Christmas is so pretty that it’s easy to forget the potential dangers of our festive decorations, so here are some of the possible hazards that may threaten your pet at this time of year:

Spray snow

Spray snow looks very pretty but it does contain chemicals that are harmful to animals. If your cat or dog licks the substance they could suffer from sickness and diarrhoea or other gastrointestinal problems.


Tinsel can cause a blockage in the intestines if eaten, and might require a trip to the vet to clear the blockage.


Glass baubles present a serious danger to pets if broken, and also pose a choking hazard.

Fairy lights

Your pet can be electrocuted by fairy lights if bitten through, but there’s also a danger they could become tangled in the lights and be unable to free themselves if they’re alone in the house.

Silica gel

Silica gel sachets are very small and your pet may eat them without you noticing. These sachets can cause gastrointestinal upset, vomiting, and diarrhoea. Whilst not wishing to diminish the joy of Christmas, it pays to make sure your pets are safe this festive season. Many of these decorations aren’t obviously hazardous but they do have the potential to cause serious harm.


The sparkle of glitter is very attractive to pets, but glitter is easily ingested. The tiny pieces can also lodge in their eyes and set up a nasty irritation.

“I don’t need a Will...” “ Wills are just for the elderly… ” “ I only have a property so I don’t need a Will… ” “ My husband will receive everything automatically… ” These are some of the things people say to me when I ask them why they don’t have a Will. Unfortunately, they are not always right and such assumptions can result in the wrong family members inheriting, additional tax and difficulties with care fees. Putting a Will in place should be considered by everyone at every stage of life.

“ Wills are just for the elderly… ” Wills are very useful for younger people too as you can appoint guardians and trustees for your children. We do not have a crystal ball and do not know when we are going to die. Making sure you have a Will in place now, means you will have protected your family should the worst happen. A Will can set up the right structure for your family, safeguard your children’s inheritance, ensure your children do not pay more tax than they should and that any children with special needs are appropriately protected.

“ I only have a property so I don’t need a Will… ” Especially in Surrey, owning a property means you have a large financial asset you need to ensure passes to the right people. New tax laws only give additional tax relief if property passes to specific people on your death: it is crucial that your Will provides for this. Care fees are also a great worry for many and Wills may be able to be drafted to ring-fence your property.

“ My husband will receive everything automatically… ” The intestacy rules (the rules which would apply if you don’t have a valid Will) do not mean that everything automatically passes to a spouse on death, as some money passes to children. This can also have the unforeseen effect of additional inheritance tax to pay. For some families, their entire estate passing to a spouse may

not be appropriate, for example there may be children from a previous marriage, children whose marriages are not working out or children who are vulnerable. It is only through a Will that the necessary mechanisms can be put in place to protect everyone’s interests. Having a Will in place means you have certainty that you are protecting your family so it is always worth having an initial chat with a solicitor.

Riding for the disabled


Horsley and Bookham Riding for the Disabled Association is a registered charity which provides facilities to benefit disabled children and young adults by having regular contact with horses. Each week, with the assistance of coaches and volunteers, riders can enjoy the horse riding experience. This provides them with the chance to be independent, to feel a sense of achievement and it puts smiles on their faces! Anne, the longest standing volunteer spoke about her views and her time with our this special charity: Horsley and Bookham RDA

How did you first hear about the charity? From a close friend of mine who was running the Thursday morning group at the time.

Who is your favourite pony and why? As I have been helping for a long time now there have been quite a few! I remember Harley who was a Piebald pony and very calm and gentle; Rosie was a willing grey who was quite nice to lead (as long as you realised she had rather sharp teeth!) and JimBob, the pony I help with at the moment, who always seems to to try hard for the children.

also helps improve their balance and their coordination and helps them to exercise parts of their body other activities do not.

What has kept you continuing to volunteer with the charity?

What have been the highlights for you with regard to your time with the RDA?

The enjoyment the children get from the riding and being with the ponies.

To see a child who for a while was very frightened about getting on a pony gradually getting the confidence to mount and enjoy the ride, and then being able to go home or back to school and tell someone about their adventure. The various Christmas rides and end of term competitions are always very enjoyable occasions.

What would be the impact if RDA wasn't available to the riders in your group? A source of exercise would be taken from them and the fact that they are able to enjoy doing something that their more able friends do not.

What do you feel are the biggest benefits to the children and young people in your group with regard to riding? It gets them out of the classroom and helps them to learn a completely new skill and also teaches them to be considerate to the ponies and form a relationship with their helpers, and gradually builds up their confidence. Riding

In three words please sum up how you feel about our RDA. Enjoyment. Adventure. Confidence. A Member Group of

Roasted red pepper & tomato soup This soup is packed with flavour and makes a great winter-warming lunch served with crusty bread.

Serves 4 Ready in 1 hour 15 mins



Preheat the oven to 200C, 180C fan, gas mark 6. Score a cross in the top and base of each tomato and place in the roasting tin with the peppers, shallots, garlic cloves, olive oil and Italian herbs. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and roast for 25-30 minutes until the tomatoes are soft with charred, peeling skins and the peppers have blistered and blackened skins.


Carefully place the hot peppers in a large freezer bag and leave until cool enough to handle (this will help to make peeling them easier). Leave the tomatoes and shallots to cool in the roasting tin.


Peel the peppers, discarding the seeds and pith, and remove the skins and any tough core from the tomatoes. Place both in a food processor or blender with the shallots and any juices from the roasting tin. Process until very smooth – you may need to do this in two batches.


Transfer the pepper and tomato mixture to a large pan and stir in the sun-dried tomato puree, vegetable stock and sugar. Slowly bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes. Adjust the seasoning, to taste.


To serve, ladle the soup into warmed bowls, top with a swirl of crème fraiche and some pumpkin seeds and basil.

• 750g large ripe tomatoes • 4 red peppers • 4 shallots, peeled and halved • 2 garlic cloves • 2 tbsp virgin olive oil • 1 tbsp dried Italian herbs • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato puree • 400ml vegetable stock • 1 tsp sugar • Crème fraiche, roasted pumpkin seeds and shredded fresh basil leaves, to serve

TIP To make crunchy roast pumpkin seeds, spread them on a baking sheet and roast in the oven with the tomatoes and peppers for 7-8 minutes.

NEWS FROM THE ROTARY CLUB OF Bookham & Horsley Making a Difference in the Community

During each year your local Rotary Club promotes 5-6 varied events in the local community which both generate much of our funding to support different, often local charities, and are also always great fun to attend! This was certainly the case with our annual Race Night in September, with the winners being cheered on by an increasingly enthusiastic sell-out crowd of punters. We had great support from local companies and all involved, raising over £1800. We are always keen to spread information about our activities and objectives and were one of many local community stands at the Horsley Place biennial fair on a very warm early September Saturday. We had a lively stand and added over 20 names to our list of those who are keen to hear from us and engage with what we are doing. Our planning for the autumn is now in full swing, with an October bridge evening followed by the ever popular Bookham Brunch on Saturday 2nd November, when we hope

Rotary local events as popular as ever Race Night sell-out success, September 2019

to welcome a further full house to our French themed morning at the Barn Hall. Regular Club meetings each Thursday continue our new blend of meals with a speaker at Thatchers hotel, with very informal pub meetings and one outside games evening at the KGV field in Effingham, plus an interesting visit to Bramble Farm Turkeys – a local Horsley success story. This year the Club has welcomed 4 new recruits who are enjoying the varied opportunities that Rotary provides. As current president Nick Garrett comments, “a really positive experience awaits you at Rotary – whether as a Club member or just if you help out occasionally – for example with our Christmas fund-raising. Do give us a try!”.

Christmas music roundup by Judy Young

Music helps your heart find it’s beat

Amongst all the pressure of the build up to Christmas - it’s sometimes hard to remember that this season of gift-giving is also a season of hope and joy. Anecdotally we hear much about singing being good for you - physically and for mental health. Stress and anxiety have been proven to be reduced after singing. There isn’t a better time than Christmas to find a local opportunity to sing your heart out. West Horsley Methodist Church start us off early in the season with a Carol Praise evening this year on Saturday 7th December giving everyone a chance to get in the mood with glorious singing of favourite carols and some refreshments. Whips Youth Theatre is holding an 'Evening of Christmas Music & Comedy' on Sunday 8th December at West Horsley village Hall which will also feature junior members of Whippets

Horsley Rocks our local community choir are holding an open rehearsal on Monday 16th December, come along and see if group singing might be the new year’s resolution for you! Traditional candlelit services of lessons and carols can be enjoyed at St Mary’s on Sunday 15th December at 7pm and St Martin’s on Sunday 22nd December at 6.00pm. There will be an opportunity to sing some carols in the pub at the Duke of Wellington pub on Monday 23rd December at 7.00pm. And finally – hope-filled midnight mass and joyful Christmas Day services will take place in all local churches. So get ready to sing your heart out, as Ella Fitzgerald said… the only thing better than singing is more singing! If you would like more information on any of the above telephone 01483 284435.
