Issue 56


Welcome! We have officially wished HM a happy birthday so we catch up with local slate sculptor Stephen Kettle and hear about his royal projects and recent work which is amazing. The summer season of fairs is round the corner. Have you booked stalls? The Shepperton Fair, Staines upon Thames Day and Laleham Fairs are all coming up in June and may still have room if you hurry. Otherwise just make sure you get along there and join in the fun. Spelthorne in Bloom is launching this month too. The committee is keen to see more riverside gardens enter into that category, so if you live by the river, why not spruce up your garden and enter. Wedding season is also here in earnest, and the prom season with it. This can be a costly time, so why not

May 2016 head down to the Princess Alice Hospice shop in Shepperton High St where they have a dedicated area to prom and wedding dresses. Yes really. It is full of wonderful goodies and you will be supporting a great charity with your purchases.

Bridal Fashion in Shepperton

A wedding is a wonderful, happy occasion, but it can break the bank. If you are wanting to dress for a wedding without spending a fortune, help is at hand in Shepperton High Street. You may not think of the Princess Alice Hospice shop when shopping for wedding wear, but this place is well worth a visit. As well as the usual stock of pre-loved goods, clothes, furniture and homeware, the shop in Shepperton has been designated the destination for all things prom and bridal. Upstairs there is a little haven of delights. Racks of satin, silk and frills. All the PAH shops will filter donations of wedding and prom dresses and they will all end up in Shepperton where you have a great choice. As well as Prom dresses and wedding gowns, there are hats, accessories, veils and outfits for the mother of the bride. We looked through the collection of quality dresses and they are priced to sell, with labels from as little as ÂŁ50 up to around ÂŁ200. There are some quality items. The launch of the new service was great fun, with hats being modelled, local violinist Lisa Rollin glammed up and playing some beautiful melodies, and local school girls acting as live models in the shop windows.

Shepperton Slate Sculptor and Friends By Monica Chard, Editor Stephen Kettle is not a regular sculptor as such, but creates art out of tiny chips of slate. Over the years he has had numerous high profile commissions and his work had been championed by none other than James May of Top Gear fame. His most recently piece to be unveiled is of First Sea Lord Admiral Sir George Zambellas (see below). The level of detail in the facial expression is quite uncanny. Remember that every tiny nuance is created by stacking slivers of slate. This piece took 8 months, working morning until night. Stephen works from the bottom up, using photos to help with facial expressions

Stephen Kettle has not always been an artist or sculptor. Having spent 15 years as a plasterer after coming out of the Royal Navy, he pursued his unique slate art very much as a hobby, exhibiting in small shows, until the fateful day when the phone rang. The caller was keen to find out if Stephen could create a life sized statue and could he email a photo to show that he could create a likeness. In calm panic, Stephen explained that of course he could and yes, photo would be sent shortly. The calm panic was down to the fact that Stephen had never done anything like it, but with the prospect of a commission for a statue for the London Science Museum, paid for by a US billionaire, this was not going to stand in his way! Stephen took a week off plastering and set about sculpting his own face in tiny slate chips. He put off the billionaire with stories of internet problems, but always with the promise that he would deliver. Deliver he did, just one week later, and the commission for a statue of the spitfire designer R. J. Mitchell was his. He never looked back! The word “slate” comes from the old French verb “eclater”, to split. Stephen takes blocks of 500m year old Welsh slate and literally splits them into To advertise call Monica on 07979 808991

slices. These slices are broken down into coin size pieces and then tumbled in a cement mixer to soften the edges. He then assembles them using an adhesive of his own creation. The whole process is laborious and precise, but Stephen loves it. His works are in many public and private collections and his most celebrated piece is the statue of wartime code breaker Alan Turing which is permanently housed at Bletchley Park in Buckinghamshire. The statue comprises of 500,000 individual pieces of stacked slate, with 200 pieces in the shoe laces alone. The piece took 18 months to create and has won numerous awards. So now that his latest piece has been unveiled and has been well received, Stephen can crack on with his next commission which is a double portrait of HRH Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall and due for completion in November. What does the future hold for Stephen? It seem that the sky is the limit. How about that fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square? Now there’s an idea! www.stephenkettle.co.uk

The statue of Alan Turing is on show at Bletchley Park. His laces are made of 200 pieces of slate.

New Lease of Life for Active Living

Exercise of what ever sort is said to be good for us all, no matter what our age or our level of fitness. The Greeno centre is one place locally which actively encourages activity. Following an appeal for funds to support OPAL, (Older Peoples Active Living), at the Greeno Centre, Shepperton. Councillor Colin Barnard approached the Waterfall Masonic Lodge at Chertsey Masonic Centre. The Worshipful Master, W. Brother Andrew Hendy, proposed a donation of ÂŁ200 to the OPAL charity. The Cheque was presented on the Lodge's behalf by Councillor Colin Barnard, to the centre manager Pat, during one of the class sessions in early April.

Restaurant Review Ivory Tusk, Shepperton

Mr C and I do love a good curry. Over the years we have frequented many good establishments, but had not until recently visited the Ivory Tusk. I know...we should have, and now we will make up for lost time! I had read a review on TripAdvisor which simply said “sublime”. I was intrigued to see if this could be possibly be true, so off we went, with a big appetite. Our table was booked for 7pm. Usually that means we arrive before the rush and have time to talk to staff. Not so this time. The restaurant was already full and there was a great buzz. What I noticed straight away is the diverse clientele. There was a table of two girls having a catch up, a group of lads out celebrating a birthday, a family with young baby, and an older mother and daughter. This restaurant clearly knows how to offer something that will appeal to a wide audience. The décor is modern, with bright paintings on the walls and halogen lighting. There were fresh roses on every table. There is a huge choice on the menu so we started with the ubiquitous poppadums and a cold beer while we contemplated. I opted for one of my favourites, prawn puri. What a good choice that was. The puffed pancake was light and airy. The prawns were king size and sweet and light as anything. There is

always the fear of prawns being overcooked and becoming like bullets, but this was far from the case. This dish was indeed sublime! Looking through the menu, Mr C had spotted a dish which brought back happy memories of spicy breakfasts in Goa - A Dosa. Admittedly it was not the Masala Dosa of our memories but it was a delicious dish. A light rice pancake stuffed with succulent diced lamb. Mr C was a happy man.

We were seated at the back of the restaurant which gave us a great vantage point to see the procession of sizzling and aromatic dishes coming from the kitchen. We could also see what neighbouring tables were enjoying. I fancied the plate of crispy onion Bhaji which the next table was sharing. It was a different interpretation but seemed to be going down well. When it came to choosing main courses I was somewhat overwhelmed. Manager Musa Rashid decided there was only one course of action, and it was to get me to sample multiple dishes. (At that point I wished I had put on some looser clothing!) For those of you who may want a little of several different dishes, a great choice is the Thali. There is the option for both meat Thali or veg Thali. I had the meat choice. The Thali is presented on a tray and served

The meat Thali offers a great choice

with three meat dishes, rice, naan, salad and a raita. The selection of meat curries was a chicken tikka masala, lamb bhuna and tandoori mixed grill of kofta, lamb and chicken. Mr C is the aficionado of chicken tikka masala. I tend to go for something with more spice, but this version was different. It was not a gloopy sweet concoction, but a sophisticated and interesting dish with multiple layers of spicing and flavours. There was a touch of mango followed by a warmth of spice and the chicken itself was moist and succulent. I would have been happy to eat a whole portion of this, and that is a first for me. Mr C said it was the best version of the old favourite that

he had tasted. Needless to say, it is also a firm favourite of the clientele of the Ivory Tusk. The lamb Bhuna was also good, but what I found outstanding was the tandoori chicken. It just has to be moist and tasty and this was both. Not overcooked, not dry, but falling off the bone and with a seriously good coating of spice that had my taste buds jumping. The cucumber raita was just the thing to calm that down, together with a few mouthfuls of soft fluffy naan bread. There were still numerous other dishes to be tasted remember. Mr C had chosen the chicken Dansak which he was very happy with. A light, fruity sauce presenting a medium spice and soft chicken. Our other main was Gosht Kata - strips of lamb marinaded overnight in spice and served with in a rich gravy of garlic and ginger. Fab! As side dishes we had Dhal Makani and Saag Aloo. We were happy with both. Dishes are freshly made from fresh ingredients and it shows. As a result, service is leisurely but efficient, leaving time between courses to build up some appetite. Staff have been with the Ivory Tusk for many years. The chef has been there for 17 years and actually trained manager Musa, who himself is in the kitchen on Monday evenings. Musa Rashid took over the running of Ivory Tusk from his father Mr Ahmedur Rashid in 1998. Musa works with passion and energy and is proud of what the restaurant has achieved. If you have not yet tried it for yourself then I highly recommend it.

The Purple Angel Prepares to Fly

Big congratulations to SDS for putting on a right rocking evening to raise funds for Dementia support. It was held at the Jubilee Centre and by all accounts was very professionally done. (Sorry I missed it. I was recovering from a charity bike ride which hugely impaired my ability to dance!) The fund raising continues. SDS joined with the Rotary of Staines for a Jazz evening at St Peters Church recently. One of the Purple Angels, Jean Saunders has also just braved the skies doing a tandem sky dive at the end of April. She was in good company. Cathy Francis, the outgoing Mayoress of Spelthorne, and son Matthew took part too. I usually see Cathy in her Mayoress chains and smart dresses, so this is quite a departure from her usual style. Due to our deadline we were unable to bring you photos in this issue, but will update you next month. Well done team! This is all in aid of raising money for Dementia support, which is sadly plaguing so many in our world today. If you can donate anything to help these fund raisers on their way, then every little helps. You will find them on www.justgiving.com. Just search for Jean Saunders and you will find her sky dive page. Mayoress Catherine Francis, Matthew Francis Donations can be made for several weeks yet. and Jean Saunders at the Mayors Ball

Kwasi’s Brexit Local residents had a chance to hear our MP’s views on the forthcoming referendum. There is no secret that Kwasi Kwarteng is backing an exit from the EU at the June 23rd vote. Shepperton Village Hall was full of locals, many who had concerns or questions for Kwasi. The meeting was chaired by Sir Ivan Lawrence, local resident and former MP himself. Kwasi spoke eloquently about his reasons for backing Brexit. He then took nearly 20 questions from the floor and tackled a certain amount of difficult interjections from attendees. If you did not get the chance to attend this meeting or to ask a question, he will be holding another local meeting at Ashford on Friday 6th May, 7.30pm, St. Hilda’s Church Hall, Ashford

Recipe of the Month Five Greens Lasagne Lasagne with a Springtime twist Crush the cloves of garlic into the pan and fry until soft but not too coloured (burnt garlic is bitter). Snap the woody ends from the asparagus and discard. Finely slice the remaining stems asparagus into 1.5cm pieces. Break the broccoli into small florets of a similar size and add both broccoli and asparagus to the pan with a splash of boiling water from the kettle. After five minutes, add the peas and broad beans along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir well. Roughly chop the mint leaves then add them to the saucepan along with the cream. Grate in the zest of the lemon to taste. Serves 2-4 depending on appetite.

When the vegetables are soft, use a potato masher to mash some of the filling to create texture. Add the vegetable stock; bring to the boil before lowering to a simmer and adding half the cottage cheese.

Preparation time 15 minutes Cooking time 20-30 minutes. Ingredients:

Give everything a good stir and cook for a few more minutes.

A bunch of spring onions Few anchovies in oil (optional) 3 cloves of garlic 175g asparagus 175g broccoli 250g frozen peas 150g frozen broad beans Handful fresh mint 150ml single cream 1/2 lemon (zested) 150-200ml vegetable stock 250g cottage cheese 1 packet lasagne sheets (dried or fresh) Parmesan cheese Fresh thyme (or a pinch of dried thyme)

Preheat the oven to 200째C. Take the vegetables off the heat and spoon around one third to a half of the mixture into a deep lasagne dish (approx dimensions 20cm x 15cm). Top with a lasagne sheet and a generous grating of parmesan cheese. Repeat the layers of vegetable and lasagne sheets until you have used all of the filling and then top with a final sheet. I prefer less pasta to filling so use fewer layers but it works as well with three layers. Mix the remaining 250g of cottage cheese with a splash of boiled water and then spread over the lasagne.

Method

Sprinkle over the thyme along with another good grating of parmesan and a final drizzle of olive oil.

Half fill and boil the kettle. Pour a little oil from the anchovies (if using) into a thick-bottomed saucepan and place on a medium heat. If not using anchovies use a tablespoon of olive oil. Finely slice the spring onions and half of the anchovies and then add them to the saucepan. Please mention Shepperton Matters when responding to adverts

Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes until the topping has browned. Serve immediately with a green salad.

St Nicholas Church Awarded Lottery Lifeline

Nearly five years ago we were alerted to the serious condition of the south transept of the church. The gable wall, facing south, was pulling away from the roof and adjoining walls, and was in danger of eventual collapse. Looking at various possibilities of raising money for such a project, we discovered that the Heritage Lottery Fund supported causes that would preserve the heritage of a building. Given that the present building is 400 years old, there was clearly mileage in this possibility. In 2013 we made our first application but it was rejected. We were told that there was nothing inherently wrong with it but they had to draw the line in awarding their funds. Seeking further advice, we discovered that there should be more stress on the benefits for the community as well as the church. We applied again in 2014 and successfully passed Phase 1. Although that success was a major hurdle, we could not take Phase 2 for granted, so we continued to work on the application. What was especially required for them this time was an Activity Plan – something that would be put into operation as soon as the repair was finished. We devised a film festival that would take place in the church. This would partly reflect our strong historical heritage and also link with the film industry which has been part of Shepperton for many years. The application went in at the end of November. We are delighted to report that we have been awarded a grant of around £75,000, the majority of the cost of the repair.

Eco Park Update

The Eco Park is continuing to grow at an alarming rate. However, this rate is not as quick as initially anticipated, and as we told them the underground water table is proving to be a problem. At the Charlton Lane Liaison Group Meeting on the 13 April where we were informed of the re-scheduling of the Piling. This is once again delayed until May running through to August once again across the summer were we will be inflicted with the constant drilling and thumping noise from the site. This time it will affect the residents in Upper Halliford and Sunbury significantly. They have ceased trade waste to the site (on the 14 th April) thus reducing the amount of traffic into the site for which we as residents are thankful for. However, the reason for this is that they are starting work on the Gasifier hence the demolish of the large existing building, thus giving rise to a reduction in residential use area on the site. This also ties in with the reduction in Public Opening Hours, and the charging system that will be introduced later in the year. On addition to this they are putting in yet another Planning Application only this time it’s for a temporary increase in operational hours for Lorries. They are also doing a Web Update with a new newsletter there will be no hard copies unless you have requested that and are on their database, we hope that this will change but at present this is the plan going forward, which is not an acceptable situation to many residents of the area. Thank you once again for your support. Karen Howkins (SATEP)

Shepperton Residents’ Association Local residents were very disappointed that the plans for a new care home on the old Bradbury Centre site in Manygate Lane were approved by the Borough Council Planning Committee on 6th April. Although the applicants had amended their plans, after review with residents, there were still concerns over the height of the building, which will accommodate 78 residents. With a provision of only 23 parking spaces residents were also concerned that the parking situation in Manygate Lane would deteriorate further.

uals. Both the County Council and the Borough Council continue to monitor the site and will take further legal action as considered necessary. Whilst changes have been made to the opening hours at all Surrey’s Community Recycling Centres, we wait to learn what charges are going to be made in respect of certain types of waste material. Meanwhile work continues on the building and fitting out of the Charlton Lane Site. Richard Hewitt

The owners of the Anchor Hotel revealed plans to convert the site into six homes at a recent public consultation meeting. It is understood that the hotel has suffered from poor financial returns for some years and therefore the owners have been looking at a number of alternative options for the site. Whilst some local residents were impressed with the broad proposals for the hotel’s conversion, there were many others who regretted the proposal given the hotel’s history and its location in Church Square. At present, it is very early days before any planning application is prepared and submitted to the Borough Council, with the stated intention of the owners to take account of the views of the Council and residents. In due course, the Association will review and consider any such planning application put forward for any alterations to the Anchor Hotel site. The illegal occupation of land in Sheep Walk continues to cause concerns. The issues are very complex, with several pieces of land owned by different individPlease mention Shepperton Matters when responding to adverts

The first meeting of the year will be on May 15th at Manor Park. If you have an old motor vehicle from whatever era, do bring it along. There have been all sorts seen at the meetings previously, including Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Ford Mustang, Austin Healey, Mercedes and a lot of beautiful little MG’s. You don’t have to own one of these classics to attend, just pop along to chat to owners or have a look at the vehicles yourself. You would have to pay money to go to Brooklands to see classic car collections, but in Shepperton you can do it for free. The meeting is from 10am-1pm so go along and find out what it is that makes classic cars such an addiction! www.sheppertonclassiccars.uk for full details and for photos of previous attendees.

Gardening Matters Bring on the Biological Warfare I'm a huge fan of biological warfare! But before you all write in to complain about my radical stance, I'm really not talking about anthrax and Ebola: I’m talking about using nature to tip the balance in favour of us gardeners. Ladybirds are my favourite biological control. They feast on aphids (greenfly) and during their year long lifespan they can scoff 5000 of them! Ladybird larvae are long and black with orange spots. They look a bit mean but don't be tempted to squish them as they are also voracious aphid-eaters. Lacewing larvae eat 300 aphids each before turning into adult lacewings and guzzling down even more, and even the much maligned wasp has a taste for greenfly so don’t be too quick to swat it with your gardening glove; it’s actually protecting your roses. The beautiful song thrush is in decline, but it loves to eat slugs and snails. Thrushes were very susceptible to slug-bait poison based on methiocarb and this was banned by the EU in 2014. The most common ingredient now is metaldehyde which is still very toxic to many garden beasts (as well as domestic animals). And slug bait is a very inefficient way to dispose of your slug population anyway, reducing it on average by just 10%.

There are many handsome ones about, though if you’re a bit of a handyman you could probably make one yourself. The big new thing in biological pest control in recent years was the arrival of pre-packed nematodes and mites. Nematodes are tiny parasites which are watered on to a problem area when the soil temperature is 10C or greater. The nematodes enter the pest and reproduce inside it, killing it in the process. When the pest dies they are then released back into the soil, ready to infect new pests. There are nematodes to target slugs, vine weevils and ants. Predatory mites are also available to target red spider mite and thrips. All of these methods have the advantage of targeting a particular pest very specifically without causing damage to the environment. Of course with organic gardening you’re unlikely to get a pristine plot but don’t despair about the odd blemish. See it as a positive sign that you care about the environment and the wildlife in your garden then repeat after me, blemishes are beautiful...

Frogs and toads are great slug-eaters, as are hedgehogs. The former can be encouraged by providing them with a tiny pond: it really doesn’t have to be much bigger than a bucket sunk into the ground.

By Rachel Leverton

Hedgehogs prefer a pile of logs to hide under, or you could invest in a hedgehog house. To advertise call Monica on 07979 808991
