SCHOOL STOPS OVER CHRISTMAS, LEARNING DOESN’T HAVE TO

It is common for children to start their new school term with fresh notebooks and a crisp new uniform, but it is just as important to ensure they are equipped with the most vital tools needed for a successful year ahead; a good grip on the core subjects of maths and English and the learning skills required for academic progression.

The start of a new year is an ideal time to enrol your child at your local centre, so amongst all the presents they may receive during the holidays, why not also give them the gift of learning? At your local Kingswinford Study Centre, Kumon offers individualised maths and English study programmes which are tailored to all ages and abilities. Established for over 50 years, .the Kumon programmes enable children to develop their study skills and confidently tackle advanced work. It’s easy for a child’s learning to take a back seat during the school holidays but it is important to keep their mind active to avoid interruption to their progress and to ensure they got off to a flying start in the new school term. At the start of the new year, it is important to ensure children are equipped with the most vital tools needed for a successful year ahead; a good grip on the core subjects of maths and English and the learning skills required for academic progression. The Kumon Kingswinford Study Centre is located at Crestwood School, Bromley Lane, Kingswinford; classes running every Tuesday and Thursday between 3.45pm6.00pm.

TAKE A SLEIGH RIDE WITH

SANTA AT THE CONE

Meet Santa, receive a gift, do a craft and follow the trail. Take your own camera to capture the magic.

SANTA AT THE RAF MUSEUM!

Available at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford, up to & including 31 December 2016 £5 per person (£16 family ticket for 4)

Santa is at the Cone 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23 December from 10am until 3.30pm. Booking is essential, please call 01384 812381 or 01384 815571.

The 4D ‘Sleigh Ride’ experience takes you to Christmas Eve where Santa is making last minute preparations for the big night. But when disaster hits, it only leaves a stuffy reindeer and a brave but clumsy elf to take the reins. Will this unlikely duo be able to save Christmas by putting their differences aside?

£7.75 per child to include craft, £5.40 for babes in arms too young for the craft.

Find out by taking a magical journey across a starry Christmastide sky.

Stifado is a Greek beef stew with shallots. There are a huge variety of Stifado recipes available but this one is my favourite. Serves 4 - 5 people Serve with rice, chips, pasta or roast potatoes and vegetables. INGREDIENTS 1kg lean beef - cubed 500g Baby shallot onions 1 large onion - chopped 2 tablespoons of tomato puree 2 large tomatoes - chopped 1/2 crushed nutmeg (put into a bag and hit with a rolling pin) 1 cinnamon stick 3 cloves 3 bay leaves 4 garlic cloves - finely chopped 1 vegetable stock cube 1 sprig of rosemary 1/2 small wine glass of extra virgin olive oil 1 large glass of red wine 2 tablespoons of vinegar Black pepper and salt

22

Do you have a tried & tested favourite recipe you would like to share? If so email it to us at thevillagermag@yahoo.co.uk Start by Pre-heating the oven to 180 ºC or Gas Mark 4 1. Place the beef in a large frying pan and seal the meat. 2. Add the olive oil, chopped onions and garlic, cook until onions are soft (about 5 minutes). 3. Add the vinegar and half of the wine, cover and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. 4. Next add the crushed nutmeg, cinnamon stick, cloves, bay leaves, rosemary, stock cube a good pinch of black pepper. Add salt to taste. Stir well, while heating on a moderate heat. 5. Add the chopped tomatoes, the remainder of the red wine and tomato puree. Stir well and heat through. 6. Turn out into a casserole dish with lid. Add 1 litre of hot water making sure you cover the meat. Put into the oven. 7. While the Stifado is in the oven, peel the baby shallots, wash them and shallow fry them in a little olive oil until soft. 8. When the Stifado has been cooking for about an hour add the shallots to the meat. 9. Continue cooking the dish for at least another hour, add water if needed, don’t let it dry out as you want to end up with a rich thick sauce. Serve when the meat is tender.

Investment Jargon –

BUSTED

By JPA

Financial Services Ltd

Every walk of life has its own particular terminology that can seem baffling to the outsider. The financial industry is no different. If you invest money into stocks and shares you are likely to be confronted with a range of words and phrases that you may not have come across before. Here are some examples of common financial jargon in use and what it means for you. VOLATILITY: This refers to the rate at which the price of a stock or share moves up and down. If the price moves up and down rapidly over a short period of time, this is high volatility. If the price remains relatively stable, it means low volatility. By and large investors generally prefer lower volatility. RISK PROFILE: This refers to the amount of investment risk you are prepared to take with your money. Your adviser will run through a set of questions with you to assess your profile so that they can recommend the right investments for your portfolio. Risk is closely related to reward, with riskier investment offering a greater chance reward, but also the risk of greater losses if the stock or shares perform badly. Your attitude to risk will probably change over the years.

ASSET ALLOCATION: This is the process of deciding what proportion of your investment should be invested in the different categories of investment assets and this is referred to as asset allocation. There are four main categories of assets – cash, equities, bonds and property. The process of determining what mix of assets you should hold in your portfolio is a very personal one, and will depend largely on the length of time over which your investment is made and of course your Risk Profile. Asset allocation helps to spread risk through diversification. Put simply it means putting your eggs in different baskets.

If you want financial advice without too much jargon, then it’s time to talk to us for professional advice.

WHAT’S SPECIAL ABOUT JPA? We hold a weekly Open surgery at our offices in High Street, Kingswinford every Saturday morning from 10.00am to 12 noon for a complimentary review of your pensions and investments.

WINTER DRIVING

DRIVING IN WINTER can be made much safer by being prepared, and adapting to road conditions. Snow, ice, high winds, mist and fog, heavy rain - winter can bring all kinds of severe weather. These present different challenges both for keeping the road network open and for those driving through the difficult conditions. In severe and wintry weather it's even more important to plan your journey and plan regular stops. Have you prepared for your journey, could you change your plans perhaps? How can you drive better in different weather conditions? Just a few minutes checking latest traffic and weather before you set off can make all the difference to your journey. In winter weather it's more important than ever to see and be seen, have tyres that grip the road and to be able to start your car in the cold and damp. Many garages offer a quick, pre-winter check-up for your car. • See and be seen: check windscreen wipers and washers, window demisters, and all lights are working correctly. • Grip the road: check tyre condition and tread depth. • Starting in the cold and damp: check battery condition and anti-freeze.

28

GET YOUR WINTER KIT READY: Ice scraper, de-icer, jump leads, shovel, blanket, sunglasses (for winter glare from the low sun), torch. Get all these things ready at the start of winter and then keep them in the car - you never know when you might need them GET YOUR EMERGENCY KIT READY: When extreme weather is possible, keep an emergency kit in your car, especially if you're going on a long journey. If this seems unnecessary, take a moment to imagine yourself stranded in your car overnight, due to a snow storm or floods. How would you stay warm? What would you eat and drink? If you must drive in these conditions, we recommend you carry: • Tow rope • A shovel • Wellington boots • A hazard warning triangle • De-icing equipment • First aid kit (in good order) • A working torch • A car blanket • Warm clothes • Emergency Rations (inc hot drink in a flask – non-alcoholic, of course) • Mobile Phone (fully charged) For further information check out www.ssrp.co.uk/winter driving or follow us on twitter #StaffsSafeRoads
