Reverse Advent Horsley


I hope your Christmas is wonderful: full of family, and presents, and food, and warmth and I hope that it’s a time that you make precious memories with those who are most dear to you. If you are the Maker-of-allthings-Christmas in your house I hope Christmas is not too stressful. BUT it can be – as we hope and trust that you know – far from wonderful for many. For those who have none of the things in our list it can be a time of acute stress and there is a stark contrast between the ‘haves’ and the “have nots’ . It’s that sorry state of affairs that prompted a couple of villagers in Horsley to ‘do something’ a few years ago now – and Reverse Advent Horsley was born. In the period leading up to Christmas we simply take an opportunity to gather good food and distribute it to our nearest food banks; Cobham (yes there is food poverty in Cobham), North Guildford and the Salvation Army who look after the street homeless. Whilst we do that, we also take an opportunity, as a village and as families, to teach our children, and sometimes each other, about the level of need and want that is only just a whisker away. If you already know it and take part – this year we will go slightly earlier – to give us time to get the food out through the networks and into people’s hands in time for Christmas. If you are new to Horsley or new to Reverse Advent Horsley, will you join us this year?

Here’s how it works: In the run up to our collection day of Saturday 27th November you have a box in your house and each day you put something into it. If you prefer you can contribute to the various collection boxes around the village and our shops and schools: the list will be on Horsley Hub and on the Reverse Advent Facebook page at Even better you could do as many did last year and organise your own street collection, or group collection and bring it to the Wheelhouse on East Lane on collection day where we’ll sort and distribute.

That’s it and we’d love your support (again). Su, along with Gee and Catherine.

Historical Fiction

Take a step back in time with this month’s books

Orphan Train Christina Baker Kline Foster child Molly steals a book from the local library. As retribution, she’s told to help an elderly lady clean out her loft. While they sort through her childhood belongings, Vivian reveals the stories behind them. As one of 250,000 destitute children sent from New York to rural states, Vivian was at the mercy of strangers, some of whom would see her as little more than free labour. A hauntingly evocative novel about a littleknown practice, Orphan Train is the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter’s night.

Hidden Child Louise Fein Eleanor seems to have it all, including a devoted, successful husband – Edward – and a delightful four-year-old daughter – Mabel. But when Mabel starts having seizures, life takes a drastic turn. For Edward is a passionate advocate of the eugenics movement and is pushing for the forced sterilisation of those the movement sees as defective – people like Mabel. How far will the family go to keep their secrets hidden?

And the Mountains Echoed Khalid Hosseini This multilayered story starts in 1950s Afghanistan when a beloved sister, Pari, is sold into a ‘better life’. Over the years, numerous characters reveal their tales, from the girl’s brother, Abdullah, and their stepmother to a seemingly unconnected expat. While Pari forgets her past, she cannot escape the feeling that something is missing. And The Mountains Echoed reads like a series of connected short stories, all of which are beautifully written, tender and rich in detail.

All The Light We Cannot See Anthony Doerr Marie-Laure huddles in a Saint-Malo house as WWII bombs rain down around her. Blind, alone, with just a small stone to protect her. A few streets away, a German boy – Werner – works alongside his comrades as they make a last stand against the Americans. The lyrical writing of All The Light We Cannot See makes you want to savour every page. The characters make you want to race from one page to the next. Stunning.

Pony R. J. Palacio The author of Wonder is back. This time, the book is set in 1860s America. When Silas’s father is abducted by outlaws, Silas sets out to find him. He’s accompanied by a pony belonging to one of the outlaws and his friend Mittenwool, who’s a ghost. Twists and turns abound. Part adventure, part Wild West coming of age, Pony has been marketed as a children’s book, but will no doubt be enjoyed by a wide range of readers.

A Net for Small Fishes Lucy Jago Set in the early 1600s, A Net for Small Fishes is based on the true story of Frances Howard and Anne Turner. Here, Frances has wealth and beauty, but is married to an abusive husband and is deeply unhappy. Anne has talent and charm, but little power. The pair form an unlikely friendship. But their attempt to break away from conventions and seek some small happiness could lead to their downfall.

Schools and the Pandemic The pandemic has been incredibly challenging for the education sector. There was no blueprint for schools to follow and no guide telling head teachers how to provide remote learning. Some schools were at a digital disadvantage, unable to deliver lessons to pupils remotely, either because the school did not have the resources, or because pupils did not have the right devices or reliable internet access. Those schools that were able to deliver remote learning successfully still faced challenges. Many children fell behind with their schoolwork during the lockdowns. When pupils returned to school, teachers were then faced with classrooms of children all at different stages of their learning. Disadvantaged children fell even further behind their peers. Even more worrying was the effect of the pandemic on children’s mental health. When surveyed, most schools said that some of their pupils were suffering from Covid-related anxiety. OFSTED found that some children had lost physical fitness, others showed signs of mental distress, and there was an increase in eating disorders and self-harm. It hasn’t just been pupils who have struggled with mental health. The pandemic came on the back of years of per-pupil spending cuts, increased class sizes and numerous curriculum changes, so thousands of teachers were already suffering from work-related stress. A 2019 survey by the teachers’ union NASUWT found that 70% of teachers felt their job had adversely affected their mental health. By September 2020, more than half of teachers said that their mental health had declined further. By April 2021, 43% of teachers were experiencing all four of the main symptoms of burnout. It’s hardly surprising that teachers struggled, considering the additional pressures they were under. Geoff Barton, General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders,


commented, “Our teachers have had to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances on many occasions. They have: rapidly become experts in delivering remote learning; run onsite provision for the children of key workers and vulnerable children during lockdowns; managed complex Covid safety measures and set up testing stations to enable pupils to return to classrooms. It may take years before we understand the long-term effects of the pandemic on children. However, both pupils and teachers experienced a much more normal return to school this year. Extra-curricular clubs have restarted and children have more freedom to socialise again.

From the Rector This time last year we were unable to plan services and events which were very important to our church and local community. Sadly, COVID, put a stop to most of the things we held dear. Although we are grateful for all the things we were able to do on-line, it is not quite the same. We were made to be together, in person and in relationships. This winter it is looking likely that we will be able to hold a service to remember those who have died, a Remembrance Sunday service in church and in December we can look forward to a Christmas Tree Festival, the return of Tenors UnLimited as well as our much-loved Christmas services. I do hope and pray that as the weeks unfold we will be able to be together in community. The posters in this section will provide the key dates but please visit our website, join us on Facebook/Twitter or join our mailing list (email me to put you on) for the latest news.

As the pandemic continues in every corner of the world, the UK has been busy tackling the virus thanks to some great individuals including Professor Sarah Gilbert for the Oxford vaccine, Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England and Kate Bingham, Chair of the UK Vaccine Taskforce. Hundreds of thousands of UK citizens have volunteered in various ways and a significant number have been trained through St John Ambulance to help with the vaccination process. I had my first shift with St John Ambulance in January 2021. Since then I have worked in the mass vaccination sites of Epsom and Sandown Racecourses, alongside pharmacy sites in Guildford and Morden. Seven months later I have completed 48 shifts, nearly 300 hours of voluntary work and administered about 1250 vaccinations but these figures mask the true value of the role we have been entrusted with. From meeting and greeting the over eighties, who wore their best clothes and brought us cakes, to welcoming the diverse, vibrant 18-30 year olds attached to their phones, St John Ambulance volunteers have collected demographic data, kept a watchful eye on people post vaccination, administered vaccine, dealt with fears, faints, phobics, comforted, mopped up, answered questions,

laughed, reassured and engaged in millions of individual ways with the British public. And what a wonderful experience it has been as the overwhelming majority of citizens have been polite, grateful, on time, patient and pleasant. It has been interesting to work alongside the paid NHS staff, experienced nurses, doctors, pharmacists, the army, the navy, security staff, parking attendants and cleaning staff. A huge task force of people have been involved in this peacetime fight to offer each one of you a double vaccine. There is no doubt scientifically that the vaccination programme has saved many lives, prevented much Long Covid and stopped the hospitals from being completely overwhelmed. The threat is not over yet and there is still much work to be done globally. I also wish to remember those who have been adversely affected by the vaccine and hope there will be fewer negative outcomes with future versions of the vaccine. It has been an honour to have the privilege of being involved with the UK vaccination programme through St John Ambulance and let’s hope we can go on to help the rest of the world with donations of money and vaccines as the global fight is far from over.

A most magical time


Christmas at the Eden Project, Cornwall Cornwall’s Eden Project is nothing short of inspiring, but seeing its world-famous biomes light up the landscape at Christmas could fool you into thinking you’ve travelled to another planet entirely. Mixing innovative light installations and live music with ice skating, a reindeer trail and Father Christmas himself, it’s the perfect place for the whole family to soak up the magic of Christmas.

It wouldn’t be the most magical time of the year without a twinkling Christmas light trail. With everything from enchanting fairy-lit tunnels to themed light shows, these afterdark illuminated experiences have boomed in popularity over recent years – Christmas light trails have everything you need to add some sparkle to your winter this year.

Enchanted Christmas, Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire Rainbows of floodlit trees, sparkling walkways, smoke effects, talking trees and a forest of candy canes: Westonbirt is every child’s idea of paradise. Saying that, there’s plenty for adults here too! Arts and crafts stalls, choirs and bands playing all the Christmas classics, and plenty of festive food – not to mention mulled wine – combine to make Westonbirt the perfect festive light trail for the whole family.

Christmas at Kew Gardens, London Arguably the most popular and established festive light trail in the South, Christmas at Kew Gardens uses its exotic plants and beautiful botanicals to give visitors a truly magical experience. New imaginative installations are added each year to keep the trail fresh. You can expect to see everything from treetop waterfalls and neonwrapped trees to flaming sculptures and spectacular water displays – all set against the impressive backdrop that is Kew’s gigantic greenhouse.

Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire The formal gardens surrounding the beautiful, 300-year-old World Heritage Site that is Blenheim Palace seem to be tailor-made for the mesmerising light trail that winds through them each winter. With lasers, pulsing vines, a flaming-torch-lit rose garden, fire sculptures floating in water – and more – it’ll take a good two hours to take it all in. This year, visitors can even delve inside the Palace rooms, each one exquisitely transformed into a fantasy scene straight from your favourite fairy tale.

To top it off, there’s even a Christmas fair that pops up each winter. Shop for presents while sipping mulled wine and nibbling mince pies. To advertise email or call 01483 338 288

Shop local and support


local businesses this Christmas

Christmas shopping is one of the festive season’s most time-honoured traditions.

could also help give staff and business owners a little morale boost at the same time.

While it can be easier to shop online with big companies, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic means that it’s all the more important to support our local infrastructure and shop locally.

Shop Online While Staying Local

So how can we support our local community? We’ve pulled together some ideas for creative and meaningful ways you can support local businesses in the run-up to Christmas, which should hopefully inspire you to spend your money with those who’ll appreciate it most.

Spread It Around When you’re out and about, try and prioritise Horsley businesses over large brands where possible. For example, picking up your fruit and veg from a greengrocer instead of the supermarket will make a big difference to local sellers and suppliers. It’s also worth following them on social media to keep up to date with their latest deals and offers.

Do search online for Horsley businesses. There may be special offers or stock not displayed in store. Websites such as and downyourhighstreet. help shoppers locate and buy from small businesses either in their area or from anywhere in the UK. Shopping locally is much nicer than battling the Christmas crowds at a large shopping centre. It also negates the stress of one-way systems, car park queues and playing human dodgems. So why not commit to using some of your Christmas spending power locally this year? There’s a small business owner near you that will (a) notice and (b) celebrate your support.

Give Vouchers And Gift Cards To help support some of your favourite local restaurants and watering holes, see if they’re offering gift vouchers and give friends and family a date night on you this Christmas. Rather than giving Christmas hampers or fancy wines and cheese, give a gift card that gives people the opportunity to go and choose a selection of goodies for themselves from a local supplier. You could also be creating a new customer for life. Before purchasing from a small business or visiting a restaurant, many of us turn to websites such as TripAdvisor and TrustPilot to see what others had to say about their experience. Leaving a positive review - even if it’s been a while since you visited or purchased - can help persuade others to become customers and To advertise email or call 01483 338 288

Surrey Wildlife Trust

Long Reach SANG In September, the doors were officially opened on the new area of natural open space adjacent to Long Reach.

their new residents away from using Ockham or Wisley Common for dog-walking and recreation.

This will be managed under contract as a country-park, by the Surrey Wildlife Trust. This change in land-use has come about through the area’s designation as a Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace, or SANG.

These fields were used for agriculture, growing crops or silage in the past. They have fairly high nutrient levels as a result, but this will reduce in time. This will be critical to the objective of restoring flower-rich grassland. Overall, the site will eventually attain a parkland-style character, with new trees to supplement the veteran Oaks already there. The site slopes westward to a ditch that is a feeder of the Guileshall Stream, itself a tributary of the River Wey. This moves a lot of water in wet winters and its volume is only likely to increase. We have plans to back-up some of that water at the base of the slope, to create a permanent, though seasonally varied natural wetland feature – an example of the Environment Agency’s ‘Natural Flood Management’ as a ‘naturebased solution’ - to better regulate surface flooding on Ripley Lane.

SANGs are created as conditions of planning permission for new developments built within five kilometres of the composite Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (SPA), a legacy of our former European Union membership. These are internationally protected wildlife sites designed to conserve the best areas for breeding and wintering birds. The nearest area of the SPA to us is Ockham and Wisley Commons. The birds protected there are specialists of heathland habitat, where they nest on or near the ground. People and dogs running loose on the heaths disturb these birds and compromise breeding success. If new housing introduces the likelihood of increased visitor footfall on the heaths, the developer must create an alternative greenspace within the vicinity to tempt the new would-be visitors away. The area of SANG is calculated perhead from the number of houses in the development. With developments now planned for the Horsleys, the SANG on Long Reach aims to attract

As for additional wildlife, we will put up owl and Kestrel boxes on some trees to encourage these birds to the vole-rich grasslands. When I first came to the village in 2006, Yellowhammers bred here but have since gone. It would be a significant milestone to have them return to the site in the coming years.

Seasonal Food November


The food we see in late autumn tends to match the colours of foliage, with oranges, reds and the darkest green very common, and bright spring greens now only on the shelves when imported. These late season fruits and vegetables are just as delicious as the options for spring and typically store for longer. Apples It’s no surprise apples are one of the world’s most popular fruits. They’re healthy, widely available and delicious both baked and raw. Cox, Red Pippin, Golden Delicious and Empire are all common in-season varieties to look out for in November. These are all eating apples of course, and cooking needs a firmer, more sour fruit such as Granny Smiths.

Brussel Sprouts Another Christmas staple, sprouts have a reputation of being strong and bitter tasting. However, over the years, British farmers have modified their crops to ensure most varieties they grow are sweeter and milder and many people love them. For a different take on serving them, peel the leaves off them (it’ll take a while) and briefly deep-fry them, then serve with lemon and salt.

Swede The perfect vegetable for our climate, preferring cold and moist winters. The harvested vegetable keeps really well in a cool, dark place so makes a useful store cupboard standby. Swede is a delicious side vegetable when cooked until soft and mashed with butter or cheese. For extra taste, try frying a bit of chopped onion until soft, then mixing with the mashed swede. Satsumas and Tangerines Bright citrus fruits bring fresh colour to the table in winter and satsumas and tangerines are at their seasonal peak in November and into December. Chard Also known as Swiss chard, and available in traffic-light options of red, orange or green, chard plants produce a constant supply of fresh leaves that can be cut off as needed. It’s more frost-tolerant than spinach, and the leaves are less tender, but otherwise can be used in similar recipes for extra flavour and nutrition.

Parsnips There’s a reason we associate parsnips with Christmas dinner – it’s prime season for them. Using parsnips instead of potatoes makes mash a little less stodgy and adds a more complex flavour. But more often they’ll be roasted until the flesh starts to caramelise and served with any roast dinner.
