Autumn Entertainment From new releases to true classics, there’s plenty to keep you entertained from our choice of books this month. How to Stop Time Matt Haig

Entrepreneurial You Dorie Clark

Extracted Trilogy RR Haywood

Tom Hazard looks like he’s 40, but he’s been alive for centuries. People notice when you age so slowly, so Tom has to change his identity every eight years – a new name, new job, new friends. Falling in love isn’t an option and it’s best not to get too attached to anyone, as they’ll only die. But Tom craves an ordinary life. Beautifully written, this book is begging to be devoured in one sitting.

If you’re fed up of the daily grind and fancy setting up on your own, this book might prove a good starting point. The tagline is a good indication of the content – ‘Monetize Your Expertise, Create Multiple Income Streams, and Thrive’. Clark offers advice on choosing what to do, building your brand and finding people to buy from you. There are plenty of case studies to be inspired by and, unlike many other business books, it’s not too heavy a read.

Harry Madden died after blowing up a German base in WW2. Safa Patel saved the prime minister, before being killed by terrorists. Ben Ryder was hit by a train while trying to stop armed men blowing up an underground station. Now these three heroes find themselves ‘extracted’ from their untimely deaths, by a man with a time-machine who wants them to save the world. A thoroughly enjoyable read, with a tightlywritten plot, great characters and plenty of action.

Home Fire Kamila Shamsie After years of raising her younger siblings, Isma is free to live her own life and to start a career in America. Back in the UK, her sister, Aneeka, is struggling in a society that sees her hijab as a threat. Enter Eamonn, the son of a well-known London politician, who will have a lasting effect on both women. This reimagining of Sophocles’ Antigone covers some pretty big issues, from religion, politics and extremism to love and family ties. However, Shamsie’s skilful writing means the themes never suffocate the story. A powerful book.


The Handmaid’s Tale Margaret Atwood Now a critically acclaimed TV series, The Handmaid’s Tale was first published in 1985. The US government has been overthrown by a fundamentalist Christian organisation, which strips women of their rights. Birth rates have plummeted and, as one of the few fertile women left, June is forced to become a handmaid to a powerful commander, Fred. Renamed Offred, her sole purpose is to bear her master’s children. Gripping.

The Break Marian Keyes Bestselling author Marian Keyes’ latest book centres around fortysomething Amy, whose husband Hugh has decided he wants a break. It’s not that he doesn’t love her; he just wants some time for himself. Six months’ worth of time in fact. But if he’s on a break, then surely Amy deserves a bit of freedom too? An amusing, easy read for curling up with on a cold winter’s evening.

Beef and Pepper Stroganoff This is a fabulously quick and easy supper that is packed full of flavour. Serve with a watercress or rocket salad.

Serves 4 Ready in 25 minutes



Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the tagliatelle and cook for 8-10 minutes or according to the packet instructions.


Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and stir-fry the steak strips over a very high heat until browned. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.


Add the onion and garlic to the pan and fry for 3-4 minutes until golden then add the pepper slices and cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Return the steak strips and any meat juices to the pan and stir in the crème fraiche and ground black pepper. Heat through gently.


Stir in the parsley and adjust the seasoning to taste. Drain the tagliatelle and divide between four warmed shallow pasta bowls. Spoon the steak mixture on top and garnish with a little more freshly ground black pepper.

• 350g tagliatelle • 1tbsp olive oil • 4 flash-fry steaks (each about 125g), cut into thin strips • 1 large onion, peeled and thinly sliced • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed • 1 large red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced • 300ml carton half-fat crème fraiche • 2tsp coarsely ground black pepper • 1-2 tbsp freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley

Tip Add a spoonful of wholegrain mustard with the crème fraiche for an extra piquant flavour or try a splash of Worcestershire sauce.

West Horsley Place Food Festival – FRIDAY 6 TO SUNDAY 8 OCTOBER –

Fantastic British Food Festivals will be holding West Horsley Place’s first ever Food Festival from Friday 6 October to Sunday 8 October. This venue is an ancient estate with 380 acres, inherited by Bamber Gascoigne in 2014 from his great aunt, Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe. It has great historic and architectural significance and a fascinating story. The central feature of the estate is a Grade I listed manor house, dating back to the 15th century, with links to King Henry VIII, Carew Raleigh (son of Sir Walter Raleigh) and several distinguished families. The grounds form the perfect setting for the Food Festival, which will offer a fun day out for all the family with a line-up of top chefs and over 40 food and drink producers. These will include local producers such as Mews Gin from East Horsley, Surrey. Visitors will have a rare opportunity to have limited access to the manor house. There will be a Talks and Tastings Hub with a full programme of free talks and demonstrations, with opportunities to taste, learn, meet and talk with top chefs and producers.

Highlights of the West Horsley Place Food Festival will include: • A line-up of celebrity chefs • Talks and Tastings Hub • 40 food and drink stalls • Wine and beer pairings • Children’s activities – face paintings, garden games • Wandering round the beautiful grounds • Organised guided visits to the manor house (limited access) For more information

Chocolate & Orange Puddings Chocolate and orange are perfect flavour partners and these lovely individual puddings taste delicious served warm with custard or cream. Makes 6 Ready in 1 hours and 30 minutes



Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Butter and line the bases of 6 x 175ml metal pudding basins with circles of baking parchment. Place a slice of clementine or satsuma in the base of each basin and press 2-3 slices around the sides.


Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat until pale and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs then sift over the flour and cocoa powder and fold into the creamed mixture with the orange juice and zest.


Divide the mixture between the pudding basins and cover each with a square of pleated, buttered foil, scrunching it tightly around the sides of each basin. Transfer to a roasting tin and pour in enough boiling water from a kettle to reach halfway up the sides of the basins.


Bake for 1 hour, until the puddings have risen and are firm to the touch, and a skewer inserted through the foil of one of the puddings comes out clean. Turn out and serve with custard or cream.

• 3 small clementines or satsumas, thinly sliced • 175g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing • 175g caster sugar • 3 large eggs, beaten • 125g self-raising flour • 50g cocoa powder, sifted • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice • 2 tsp orange zest • Custard or cream, to serve

Tip You can cook the puddings a few hours before serving then simply re-heat in the microwave. Turn out onto a microwave plate and reheat three at a time on High for 30-45 seconds.

Keeping Your Pets Safe This Bonfire Night Bonfire Night can be a frightening and anxious time for pets, and it’s important to spare a thought for their safety. Keeping them safe and feeling secure is paramount during this time, so what can you do to help your pet deal with the sights and sounds of Fireworks Night?

Calming tablets Your vet will be able to recommend various types of calming tablet that gently reduce anxiety and the trauma often suffered on Bonfire Night. Flashing lights and loud noises create fear, which can sometimes lead to aggression in a normally non-aggressive dog.

‘Noise’ CDs These are CDs that play noises similar to those heard on Bonfire Night, and can gently acclimatise your pet to the unusual sounds. Played at a low level during late October and early November, it can help your pet to cope better on the night.

Blocking out the noise Make sure you draw your curtains and turn up the volume on the TV or radio to drown out the sound of fireworks. Close your doors and windows, not forgetting the cat flap if you have one.

A safe den Provide a ‘den’ where your pet will feel more secure, giving them their comfort blanket or toy, or even an old piece of your clothing to help ease the anxiety. Keeping your pet indoors will ensure their safety, but if you do need to take them outside make sure they are wearing a collar and tag. fireworks-and-pets kennel-club-campaigns/fireworks

Homeopathy is a well-established form of holistic healthcare, beneficial to all ages. In my experience it is an effective, gentle and safe system of medicine that is non-toxic and without side effects that can support so many conditions and healthstates i.e. migraine, skin conditions, infertility, pregnancy, menstrual aggrivations, respiratory problems, sinus problems, hayfever, depression, anxiety, phobias, grief, digestive complaints, poor sleep patterns, joint and muscle complaints. Confidentiality and professional practice are of paramount importance to myself and my patients. I also see patients at the Ashtead Osteopathy and Natural Health clinic.

St Martin’s Church EAST HORSLEY KT24 6RL

From the Rector... I hope you have all had a good summer and time to be with family and friends. We ended the summer holidays with a wonderful outdoor pet service. Do look at photos on our Facebook page. We now look forward to our Harvest Family Service and numerous other services and activities in the next couple of months. November is a month of ‘remembrance’. On Sunday 5 November at 4.00pm we are holding a special service we call ‘A Time to Remember’ when we remember those whom we have loved but have died. We read the names of those we wish to remember. Please fill in a postcard at the church or email me if you would like us to remember someone in particular. Please do come along. The service is followed by tea and cake. The following Sunday is Remembrance Sunday when we remember the dead and injured of the two World Wars and of course the many conflicts since in which our Servicemen and Women have been involved. It is an opportunity to remember the sacrifices and courage of so many and in honour of their memory to pray fervently for peace. The service is at 10.30am.

We hope to see you soon With every blessing

You, Your Bones, & Osteoporosis World Osteoporosis Day 20th October Worldwide, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men aged 50 and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones weaken and decrease in density, increasing the likelihood of fractures. The high incidence of fractures in the over50s is mostly due to weakened bones. Although osteoporosis can affect any bone, the wrists, hips and spine are the most commonly affected.

Who is at risk? Women are generally at greater risk than men, as falling oestrogen levels during the menopause affect bone density. Women are at even higher risk if they: • Experience menopause or have a hysterectomy before age 45. • Over-exercise or diet, stopping their periods for more than six months. Other risk factors include: • Overactive thyroid or parathyroid glands. • Adrenal gland or pituitary gland disorders. • Family history of osteoporosis or hip fracture. • A BMI of 19 or less. • Long-term high-dose corticosteroid use (e.g. for arthritis or asthma). • Eating disorders. • Smoking and heavy drinking. • Rheumatoid arthritis. • Conditions causing malabsorption problems (e.g. coeliac or Crohn’s disease).

• Some breast and prostate cancer medications. • Long periods of inactivity (e.g. long-term bed rest). • In men, low testosterone levels.

Preventing Osteoporosis DO: Take regular exercise that includes weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening activities, which exert force on bones and stimulate growth. They’ll also improve flexibility and balance, making falls less likely. • Weight-bearing exercise: brisk walking, hiking, jogging, climbing stairs, rope skipping, aerobics or racquet sports. • Muscle-strengthening (resistance) exercise: weightlifting (hand weights are fine), resistance bands, weight machines, rising up on your toes and push-ups. Include plenty of calcium, vitamin D and protein in your diet. Dairy foods are great sources of protein, calcium, Vitamin D and other vital minerals. Other sources of calcium: some green vegetables (e.g. kale, broccoli, okra), apricots, canned fish with bones (e.g. sardines), nuts, soya beans and soya milk. Most of our vitamin D is produced naturally when our skin is exposed to sunlight (so ensure you spend a little time outside without sun cream). However, our sunlight exposure depends on location and lifestyle. Dietary sources include egg yolks, fatty fish (salmon, tuna and mackerel), beef liver and almond milk.

You can also choose foods fortified with calcium and Vitamin D (e.g. some breads and cereals) or take supplements. Don’t take more than 500–600 mg of calcium daily and take Vitamin D too, as it’s essential for calcium absorption. DON’T: Smoke or exceed the advised alcohol limits of 2 units a day. Both are proven to substantially raise fracture risk.

Diagnosing Osteoporosis Doctors can use an online tool to assess fracture risk. You may also have a DEXA (DXA) scan that measures bone mineral density, giving you a ‘T score’. A score below -2.5 confirms a diagnosis of osteoporosis.

Treating Osteoporosis It’s sensible to maintain healthy Vitamin D, calcium and fitness levels and reduce your fall risk by ensuring your eyesight and balance are fine. However, if you have a hormone deficiency, a supplement may be appropriate. Other medications include: • Bisphosphonates (e.g. etidronate) and Selective Oestrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs), which help maintain bone density. • Strontium ranelate, which reduces bone breakdown and stimulates new bone growth.

We all know our passwords probably aren’t strong enough, but remembering complex passwords is difficult. The solution? A password manager. Apps such as 1Password or LastPass create a secure vault to store passwords on your computer, and when they’re needed they’re filled out automatically. Best of all, you can synchronise passwords across your various devices, so a password saved to your computer is available on your phone. Apple offers its service via iCloud Keychain, allowing you to store and sync passwords between Macs, iPads and iPhones. The real benefit of these services is that they generate really strong passwords, so you don’t have to come up with them yourself or remember impossible-sounding combinations of letters and characters. But don’t forget the golden rule: never use the same password on more than one site or service.

You’re Never Alone With A Book Club Who said reading was a solitary occupation? These days, thanks to the popularity of book clubs, you’ll find book lovers throughout the world coming together to socialise and share their views. And avid readers who can’t meet face-to-face will find plenty of online platforms where they can discuss the books they have enjoyed with others. The main objective of a book club is to invite a group of people to read a novel or work of nonfiction in their own time and then come together in a social setting in order to discuss it. Some book clubs meet in group members’ homes, while others meet in libraries, pubs or community centres. These gatherings are usually informal in nature, with few set rules, although limits may be set on the time allowed for conversations that are not related to books!

Joining up Many clubs are set up by word of mouth, so you could ask friends, family or work colleagues if they know of any groups operating

locally. Your local library can also be a good source of information. If your library doesn’t already run its own club, it may provide space for an independent group to meet, or carry a list of book clubs operating in the area. Websites such as readinggroups. org or also carry lists of local groups you can join.

Starting your own book club If you’ve researched your area and found that there are no groups that meet your needs, you could always set up your own club. Here are a few ideas to get you started: Choose what type of book club you’d like to run. Should it be seriously academic, or light and frivolous? The answer may depend on the type of people who will be attracted to join: their ages, gender and areas of interest. Decide how many people should be invited as members. A group of between 8 and 16 is a comfortable size, allowing you manage conversations and continue with sessions even if several members are absent. Think about when and how often the club should get together. Meeting on a monthly or six-weekly

basis works well for most people and gives time for books to be read. It is best if the timing of meetings is agreed through discussions with other members, in order to accommodate their work or childcare commitments. Once you’ve decided on a schedule that works well for the group, try to stick with it. There are many different ways to keep in touch with members but the quickest and most efficient way to communicate is via email or social media. Set up a Facebook group for your club or sign up to the website, which lets you set up a private book club page to keep track of book selections, send out meeting invitations and track acceptances. In addition to all the pleasure you’ll get from reading and discussing a wide range of books, by joining or starting up a book club you will also enjoy linked activities such as visits to literary festivals, meeting local authors or trips to the cinema to see the film version of a book you’ve read. It’s the perfect activity for socially-inclined book lovers. If you ever thought reading was a lonely pastime, there’s no doubt you’ll revise your opinion when you join a book club.

Government Schemes for First-Time Buyers and Existing Home Owners What has caused a housing crisis in recent years? A rise in the UK population, falling numbers of new-build properties and high prices in certain areas of the country have all combined to create a dire need for affordable housing. If you are an existing homeowner wanting to move up the property ladder, or are looking to buy your first home, a number of government schemes could help you make that investment:

Help to Buy ISA Eligibility • First-time buyers only. • Purchase price of up to £250,000 (£450,000 in London).

from a registered Help to Buy builder. • You cannot use a partexchange deal on your old home.

How it works Also known as shared equity, you own your home using the equity loan scheme, purchasing a proportion of the property up front with the remainder being paid back over a pre-agreed term.

• You must live in the property.

Shared Ownership

• It must be your only home.


How it works

You may be eligible for the Shared Ownership scheme if your annual household income is £80,000 or less (£90,000 or less in London) and:

The government boosts your Help to Buy ISA savings by 25%, up to a maximum of £3,000, so for every £100 you save into the ISA you will receive an additional £25 from the government. If you and a partner are saving for your first home together, you can each open a Help to Buy ISA and take advantage of a savings boost of up to £6,000 in total.

Equity Loan (in England) Eligibility • Applies to new-builds only. • First-time buyers and existing homeowners may be eligible. • Property purchase price up to £600,000 in England. • You must live in the property, and not sub-let it. • It must be your only property. • The home must be purchased

• This is your first home. • You have been a homeowner, but are now unable to afford a property. • You already use the shared ownership scheme. How it works You purchase between 25% and 75% of the property outright and pay a subsidised rent on the outstanding portion. You may be able to purchase more shares until you own the whole

property, and the rent is reduced proportionately.

Starter Home Scheme The Starter Home scheme is the latest government initiative to help first-time buyers in England onto the property ladder. Although not yet fully up and running, these are the latest eligibility criteria and details known. Eligibility • First-time buyers aged between 23 and 40. • Maximum household income of £80,000 (£90,000 in London). • Must have a mortgage. • There will be restrictions on the resale or letting of the property for 15 years after purchase. How it works The government is offering a minimum discount of 20% on a property’s market value, so purchasers will need a mortgage of up to 80%. The purchase price after the discount can be up to £250,000 (£450,000 in London). Starter homes under this scheme will be exempt from the Community Infrastructure Levy, which house builders normally have to pay to local authorities.

Body & Bouquet Beginners Wine Tasting Wine tasting is the practice of using the senses of touch, sight and smell to evaluate different wines. It is believed that the first wines were produced in Mesopotamia - an ancient region that included present day Iraq and Kuwait together with parts of Syria and Turkey - between 4,000 and 3,000 BC. By the time of the Roman Empire, the production of wine had spread throughout the Mediterranean, even as far as the British Isles. However it was not until the 14th century that more formalised ways of sampling and evaluating wines began to emerge.

The four stages of wine tasting 1 The first phase in the four recognised stages of winetasting is appearance. The liquid is examined to see how well it reflects or refracts light, whether it is cloudy or clear, and how much the process of oxidisation over time might have affected its colour. 2 The wine’s smell (also known as its “nose”) is then judged. Tasters must attempt to describe the perfume it gives off, as determined by its “aromas” and “bouquets”. “Aroma” refers to the smell of the specific grape - or combination of grapes - used, while “bouquet” refers to the scent created as the wine matures.

3 To judge the taste, swirl the wine around your mouth so your taste buds can do their work. As well as teasing out the specific flavours of the wine, you’ll be considering the amount of sweetness and/or tartness you find. You might also want to judge the amount of astringency (bitterness caused by the tannin in grape skins) you can detect. Overall, you’ll be looking for “balance” in the wine, deciding whether all its components are in harmony. 4 The final part of the process is to consider the impression left on your tongue when you have either swallowed or used a spittoon to clear the wine from your palate. At this stage you’ll be able to tell a well-made wine by its crisp, clean finish: poor quality wines often leave a watery and insubstantial aftertaste. The best quality wines leave a “long finish”: that’s a flavour that remains in the mouth after the wine has gone.

afternoons under the title “The Wine Room” at £125 per person, taking place in the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex (telephone 01342 822251 or email wineroom@jillygoolden. com). Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking run tasting and winery tours, indoor-tours/ and why not start your exploration of wine at Cellar Magneval in Ripley, As you develop confidence you’ll be able to explore some of the 400 or more commercial vineyards that operate in the UK. Visit England (visitengland. com) has a list of vineyards, many of which are open to the public, offering luxury on-site accommodation in B&Bs and self-catering accommodation so you can relax and make the most of your wine-tasting experience.

How do I start? If you’re not sure how to kick off your wine-tasting hobby, an online search will lead you to a number of excellent courses, taking place locally. The wellknown TV wine connoisseur Jilly Goolden runs wine-tasting

High-Tech Horrors When your gadgets go bump in the night. Some of the scariest things don’t make very good costumes: nobody’s going to go to a fancy dress party as The Laptop Full Of Orange Juice, The Stolen Smartphone or The Family Photos That Got Deleted By Accident. But unfortunately such horrors do exist. How can you ensure that they don’t give you nightmares? The first step to avoid any kind of digital disaster is to have backups of anything important. You can do that in several ways: you can copy files to an external hard disk; you can upload them to an online service such as Microsoft OneDrive or Yahoo’s Flickr; or you can backup to CD-R or DVD. That latter option is the least safe, though, because discs can easily be lost or damaged. We prefer the online option, as it ensures our backups are kept far, far away in the event of emergency.

Keeping up-to-date backups means that even if your hardware suffers a horrible fate, your important files - your family photos, perhaps, or the book you’re secretly writing - don’t go with it. If your device is lost or stolen there are a few things you can try. Apple and Android phones and tablets have a “find my device” option - for Apple it’s Find My Phone in iCloud, and in Android it’s find. The latter even includes Android TVs, if you have one. You can use the services to make the device play a sound if you think you’ve just put it somewhere nearby or to display a message urging the finder to call, but you can also use them to lock the device and erase all the data on it, rendering it useless to any thief or to anyone who finds it. One of the most common digital disasters is water damage: a drink spilled on a laptop, or a smartphone dropped in liquid. If that happens to you, stop immediately - and we mean immediately, because every second counts - and turn it

off; if it’s a laptop, turn it upside down so the keyboard is facing downwards and the liquid can drip out. Wipe any wet surfaces, unplug every cable and leave it on top of a towel for at least 24 hours in a warm, dry place. Don’t try to fast-forward by using a hair dryer, as its heat can damage delicate components. When you’re absolutely sure it’s dry turn it back on and look for signs of weird behaviour: if it doesn’t work properly, you’ll need to take it to a repair shop. With phones the process is much the same, but you might get better results if you put the phone in a bag of uncooked rice. Rice is ultraabsorbent and can help dry your phone out more quickly. As for our final horror, accidentally deleted files, you can get them back if you move quickly. That’s because when you trash a file it doesn’t actually get deleted; instead, it’s marked as “okay to over-write”. If you can get to it before it’s overwritten you can usually get it back, even if you’ve emptied the recycle bin. Our go-to app for recovering files is Recuva (www.recuva. com), which works on Windows, on camera memory cards and on USB sticks too. There’s a free version for simple recovery jobs.
