Chocolate & Walnut Biscotti These crunchy Italian biscuits are perfect for dunking into a festive coffee or serving as an after dinner treat. They also make a great foodie gift packed into clear gift bags and tied with ribbon and a Christmas label! Makes 20 Ready in 1 hour + cooling time



Preheat the oven to 180C, fan 160C, Gas 4. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until pale and fluffy, then beat in the egg and orange zest. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnut pieces.


Sift over the baking powder and flour and stir well until combined. Turn the mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and knead to a soft dough, adding a little more flour if necessary.


Divide the dough into two pieces and shape each to an oval shape roughly 20cm x 10 cm. Place on a large baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 20-25 minutes until firm and light golden. Cool for 5 minutes.


Transfer the two pieces of semi-baked dough to a chopping board and, using a sharp knife, cut each piece into 10 slices.


Return the slices, cut-side down, to the baking sheet and bake for a further 8-12 minutes until crisp and golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

• 50g unsalted butter, softened • 100g golden caster sugar • 1 medium egg, beaten • Finely grated zest from 1 orange • 50g dark chocolate chips • 50g walnut pieces • 1/2 tsp baking powder • 175g plain flour, plus extra for kneading

Tip: The biscotti will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. You can change the nuts – try pecans, toasted almonds or hazelnuts, if preferred.

Christmas Traditions Every year, some people mourn the loss of traditional, more faith-based Christmas celebrations. Yet most December 25th traditions are far less Christian and much more recently adopted in the UK than they may think. Celebrating on December 25th Jesus’ birth date isn’t documented and the gospels of Matthew and Luke, written long after his death, give contradictory clues. Some scholars say the sheep on the hillside and the census suggest good weather, indicating spring to early autumn. So why is Christmas celebrated on the 25th of December? Midwinter festivals abounded by the time Christianity took hold. There were winter solstice celebrations such as Yule and Koleda, and the Roman festivals of Saturnalia (which included decorating your home with evergreens – sound familiar?) and Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, ‘birthday of the unconquered sun’, on December 25th. It was easier for early proponents of Christianity to introduce it into these longstanding festivals than to persuade people to give them up. The first Christian Roman Emperor, Constantine, began celebrating Christmas on December 25th in 336. A few years later, Pope Julius I declared it the official date to celebrate Jesus’ birth. Some scholars believe he also chose this date to honour Hanukkah and Jesus’ own religion, Judaism. Orthodox and Coptic Christians celebrate Jesus’s birth on

January the 7th - the ‘original’ December 25th. Our December 25th moved when we adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1752.

Yule Logs Today, Yule logs have been mainly superseded by logshaped chocolate cakes here, but neither are connected to Jesus’ birth. Yule logs were part of the Scandinavian Yule celebration, beginning at the winter solstice and running into January. Yule logs were burned to mark the return of the sun and festivities continued until they burned out. Celts also burned a Yule log, believing it persuaded the sun to return and bestowed good luck on those who dragged it from the forest.

Holly, Ivy and Mistletoe Evergreens were used in winter solstice festivals to bring good luck and signify the coming spring. The tradition of hanging mistletoe in the house is an ancient Druid custom to ward off evil spirits, but in Norse mythology it’s also a symbol of love (hence kissing under the mistletoe).

Christmas Pudding The original ‘Christmas pudding’ was frumenty, a thin 14th century porridge containing raisins,

currants, prunes, wine, spices, beef and mutton. However, by around 1650, people ate plum pudding, and by Victorian times, it was similar to the modern-day Christmas pud.

The Christmas Tree Evergreen fir trees have been used in winter festivals for thousands of years to symbolise the coming spring and everlasting life, although they were often hung upside down from the ceiling rather than stood upright. ‘Christmas trees’ emerged in the 1500s in town squares but took time to come into people’s houses. The Royal Family had one from Georgian times, but an 1848 photo of Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and their family gathered around theirs popularised the idea.

A Merry Christmas Christmas wasn’t celebrated widely in the UK until the Middle Ages, when it was predominantly a time for merrymaking and feasting on animals too expensive to feed through winter. It was later banned for many years by the Puritans for its Pagan origins. It began to recover in Georgian times with a focus on charity and gift-giving, paving the way for the idealised Victorian Christmas described by Charles Dickens.

Pets Take Extra Care of Your Pets this Christmas All the trimmings and paraphernalia of Christmas are wonderful for us, but they can represent a danger to your pet. So with this in mind, what in particular do you need to watch out for at this time of year?

Christmas decorations If your pet has a tendency to chew, be wary of your Christmas tree lights as they may cause electrocution. Glass baubles also break very easily and it’s difficult to spot the smaller shards of glass, which can easily lodge in a pet’s paws or mouth – a particular problem if your cat is prone to climbing the tree.

Chocolate Chocolate contains a substance called theobromine, which is poisonous to dogs and cats. Dark chocolate has the highest amount, although milk chocolate also causes potentially life-threatening symptoms if consumed. It’s a serious issue at any time of the year, but at Christmas the fact that you’re likely to have more chocolate in the house increases the risk.

Rich foods Turkey meat is too rich for many dogs – they struggle to digest this fatty food which can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. High fat foods in general tend to irritate your pet’s stomach and intestines, so it’s a good idea to stick to their usual diet as much as possible during the festive season.

St Martin’s Church EAST HORSLEY KT24 6RL

From the Rector... What are you hoping to get this Christmas? I’m hoping to get one of those gadgets which you speak at and it plays music and all sorts of other things! I just love a gadget and no doubt if I get one the novelty will wear off just like all the other gadgets I’ve accumulated over the years. This year, the Rectors of East Horsley, West Horsley and Ockham (myself, Phil and Hugh) want to give everyone in our villages a gift. It’s a gift in the form of an invitation to join us on our Alpha course in the new year. This gift is an introduction to the Christian faith and an opportunity to develop a relationship with a baby who grew up to be the most revolutionary man to ever walk this earth. Last year, over 40 people joined us on the Alpha course. For many it was life changing and life enriching. Some gifts will come and go but the gift of Jesus Christ is freely available to all of us and is life long and life changing. I hope you’ll think about joining us and come and find out more at the launch evening on Tuesday 16 January at 7.30pm here at St Martin’s. But I hope to also see you over Christmas (details of our services over the page).

With every blessing for Christmas and the New Year. Renos

This is the sequel to the bestselling I Don’t Know How She Does It, but works just as well as a stand-alone novel. A brilliant read, it’s laugh-out-loud-funny in its depiction of the trials and tribulations of the sandwich generation.

The Betrayals Fiona Neill Sometimes there are four sides to a story. Daisy has just got her life back together after battling through years of OCD. But then a letter arrives addressed to her mother, which threatens to open old wounds and reveal the secrets Daisy has tried so hard to keep hidden. The Betrayals was awarded the Richard & Judy Book Club 2017 Thriller award, and it’s easy to see why. An emotive novel about the complexities of family life, mental illness, betrayals and the fallibility of memories.

Dark Matter Blake Crouch Jason Dessen hasn’t achieved all he planned to with his life, but on the whole he’s content. So when he’s kidnapped and escapes to find his home has changed, his wife isn’t his wife and his son doesn’t exist, he’ll stop at nothing to put things right. But is he the college professor he believes himself to be, or the genius scientist others seem to think he is? A really intriguing book, with a fast-paced storyline and lots of twists and turns.

State Primary Education In Horsley Dear Horsley Residents, Last year The Raleigh School submitted a proposal to GBC about our hope to build a new home for the Raleigh School on the site known as A41 (a field on East Lane, opposite Manor Farm KT24 6HQ) that is perfect for our needs. Sadly, this was not agreed by GBC, but we still believe that it is a sound plan and want them to think again. We also wish the local community to be kept fully informed and consulted so this letter and questionnaire is intended for that purpose. We are proposing that we build a two or preferably three-form entry school, with adjoining playing fields on this site, (we currently have a waiting list of 108). Also we propose a significantly reduced number of houses are built, down to just 10 from the previous proposal of 90, on that piece of land, together with a community sports hall from which we hope the school and community will benefit enormously. We passionately believe the facilities will transform the way we can educate your children. It would be a modern, energy-efficient building with a neighbouring sports hall, surrounded by both playing fields and woodland that would allow us to create a “Forest school� to study the local ecology and environment. We hope the Raleigh Nursery will relocate to the new site and share the benefits of the exciting new facilities. There will be pedestrian and cycle paths from both East and West Horsley to access the site as well as car parking on site for all staff and parents dropping and collecting twice daily. If we are granted permission to create our new home then obviously we need to pay for the land and the construction. To that end we hope that a partnership can be formed with a house builder who would develop our Northcote Crescent and Weston Lea sites. These are very early days, but we estimate 30 homes could be built on each of those sites. Continued overleaf

We are well aware of how sensitive the community feels about building on green belt land in the village. The simple truth however is that without new houses there can be no new school. Many of us wish there was another way but there isn’t. It’s vital that your voice is heard. We will continue to listen to your thoughts and concerns but most importantly we need your support. Sadly it is people who are against progress who usually respond to these questionnaires – If you think this is a good idea it is essential that you respond and complete the questionnaire opposite. Then just pop it in a drop box or scan and email or fax it to The Raleigh School. We hope that you can support our vision to build a new Raleigh School but we also understand the reservations that many of you will have about any new building in the village. Whatever happens as the situation evolves we want to work with the local community and hopefully earn your support. Best wishes,

Fiona O’Neill Headteacher

Claire Handley Chair of Governors

Salmon & Monkfish Filo Wreath This festive wreath makes a great alternative to traditional roast turkey and can be prepared in advance the night before. Serves 6 Ready in 1 hour 30 minutes + chilling time

Ingredients 1

Use the sunflower oil to grease a 1.2 litre capacity ring mould, then line the mould with cling film.


Brush the sheets of pastry one by one with melted butter and use nearly all of them to line the ring mould. Overlap the pastry sheets slightly as you go and repeat the layers 3-4 times. Leave the excess pastry to drape over the side of the mould.


Mix the salmon, monkfish and prawns in a large bowl and stir in the lemon juice and chopped dill. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.


Spoon the fish mixture into the pastry-lined mould, pressing down gently. Fold the excess pastry in over the filling and top with more buttered sheets of pastry, cutting them to fit and completely cover the filling. Stamp small star shapes out of any remaining sheets of buttered pastry and place on a plate.


Cover the ring mould and the plate with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour (or overnight). Carefully invert the ring mould onto a large baking sheet and then remove the mould and the cling film. Re-melt any remaining butter and brush all over the pastry.

Tip: Filo pastry sheets


can vary in size so simply cut to fit. Don’t worry if they tear, just place another piece of buttered pastry on top to cover the tear.

Bake in a preheated oven at 190C/fan 170C/Gas Mark 5 for 4045 minutes until the pastry is crisp and golden. Bake the pastry stars on a separate baking sheet for 5 minutes until golden.


Allow the wreath to stand for 5 minutes then transfer to a serving platter and decorate with the pastry stars. Garnish with lemon wedges and dill sprigs.

• Sunflower oil, for greasing • 100g butter, melted • 270g pack filo pastry, thawed if frozen • 450g salmon fillet, skinned and diced • 450g monkfish fillet, skinned and diced • 225g cooked peeled tiger prawns • 2 tbsp lemon juice • 3 tbsp chopped fresh dill • Salt and freshly ground black pepper • Lemon wedges and dill sprigs, to garnish

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.
