Patrick Gardner & Co triumphs at Surrey Property Awards 2018

Patrick Gardner & Co, Mole Valley’s foremost independent

estate agency, triumphed at the prestigious Surrey Property

Awards 2018, scooping up the award for ‘Best Sales/Lettings

Agent with 4+ Branches.’

The team from Patrick Gardner attended the black-tie

awards ceremony and gala dinner held at Guildford’s G-Live,

collecting a trophy presented by former international rugby

player, Martin Bayfield.

The Surrey Property Awards recognise and acknowledge

best practice, exceptional service and excellent design

across the property industry. The event also raises funds

for the Guildford-based charity, Challengers, which provides

leisure activities for disabled and young children in the

South East.

Martin Bayfield with the Patrick Gardner team – Michelle Manester, Bruce Shaw, Vari Bowling

and Tom Mason with The Worshipful the Mayor of Guildford, Councillor Mike Parsons.

Speaking of the company’s achievement, Bruce Shaw, Senior

Partner at Patrick Gardner & Co, said: “We are delighted

to have won this award which recognises the dedication

of our team, based in Ashtead, Bookham, Dorking and

Leatherhead – and our company’s commitment to providing

a first-class service to all our customers, including the

general public, land and property owners and industry

professionals. We have been working in this area since

1992 and in addition to sales and lettings, we specialise in

property and block management, land and new homes.”

“This award is particularly important to us because, rather

than being selected by a judging panel, we were nominated

and voted by for those who have used our services.”

MAKE YOUR DREAM MOVE IN 2019 WITH

CALA AT AMLETS PLACE

The start of a new year is a time for looking ahead, so what better

way to start afresh than securing a brand new home? For growing

families looking for contemporary living and a great quality of life

in a desirable location, CALA Homes’ award-winning Amlets Place

development in Cranleigh offers just that.

Comprising a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom detached

family homes with generous plots, buyers can take advantage of a

range of purchasing incentives including the Home and Communities

Agency’s (HCA) Help to Buy Equity Loan, whereby the Government

lends the buyer up to 20% of the cost of the newly built home, so they

only need a 5% cash deposit. This also means that they can access

lower interest rates on a 75% mortgage loan. There are no fees or

interest payable on the 20% loan for the first five years of owning the

home, and buyers will legally own 100% of their home.

For those with a property to sell, buyers can also utilise CALA’s

popular up to 100% Part Exchange scheme, whereby CALA effectively

acts as a cash buyer, saving time, hassle and money, with no agents

fees to pay, and offering the peace of mind of being chain-free and

being able to stay in your current home until your new CALA

home is completed.

Amongst the properties currently available is Plot 73, the four-bedroom

detached ‘Ewhurst’ housetype. Priced at £985,000, this beautiful

double-fronted family home offers generous space throughout with a

large sitting room opening onto the south-facing rear garden and an

impressive kitchen/breakfast area with family room and separate utility.

Whether you’re entertaining or working, the dining room and study

are bathed in light by bay windows. Of the four double bedrooms, the

impressive master bedroom boasts a four-piece en suite and dressing

room, complemented by two further en suites and a well-equipped

family bathroom. Plot 73 is ready to move into now and, as a special

incentive, is available with light fittings and carpets throughout.

Nicki Dennis, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (South

Home Counties) comments: “Proudly known as England’s largest

village, Cranleigh is one of the most aspirational villages to live in

Surrey, offering a tranquil countryside setting with all the amenities

you need right on your doorstep. It’s perfectly situated to enjoy the

great outdoors of the Surrey Hills and the South Downs National Park,

with Cranleigh village just a short walk away from the development

offering a range of family run businesses and independent stores, as

well as well-known shops and restaurants. With a selection of homes

now available to move into, there couldn’t be a better time than now to

look for your new forever home.”

For further information on the of range homes currently available at Amlets Place, priced from £475,000 to £1,150,000, please visit the

marketing suite and showhomes, which are open daily from 10am to 5pm, call 01483 378635 or go to www.cala.co.uk.

The dream: This is it, this is the one.

After a couple of years of writing this

each month, this is the house that

had made me sigh with longing the

most. Grade II listed with origins in

the 1500s and additions ever since,

including a very grand portico in

the 1930s. More recently, a heavenly

orangery next to the kitchen. It has

the perfect combination of grandness,

beamy cosiness and a modern layout.

As well as the rambling formal rooms,

there is a cold larder, a preparation

kitchen as well as the social one, and

a boot room with outside access.

Frensham, ten miles from Haslemere.

pathways for walking and riding.

shutters on the outside.

windows for miles. A four-oven

THE WINTER EXHIBITION

Editor’s

Letter

What are your plans for 2019? I don’t believe in New

Year resolutions – I cringe from the finger-wagging

bossiness of them – and prefer instead to start the

year thinking and dreaming about what I’m cooking up for the

months ahead. It’s exciting, rather than pressurising.

One thing I’m really looking forward to in 2019, is eating

dinner in my lovely new kitchen/family room. Then it will be

on to the next stage, converting the former kitchen space into a

telly room/study.

We moved it to create a more contemporary open-plan layout

in the Victorian house – like the ones I love poring over in the

houses we feature in this magazine.

There are two very special ones this month and although they

couldn’t be more different, both are giving me ideas for my new

space – which is perfect timing now I’m at the delicious stage of

choosing colours, fabrics and light fittings for it.

The start of the year is a great time to cosy up with swatches

and paint charts, to plan renovation and decorating and we hope

you will find lots of inspiration in our Interiors supplement and

those fabulous houses.

Enjoy your Surrey Homes!

Previous page: The main living area. Above: Looking down into the double-level living area from the glass mezzanine

Back in 2011, when Ian and Lisa decided to make the

move from Tunbridge Wells to Hastings, they had

an offer accepted on an old pub which they hoped

to convert into a house. But a bad survey put paid to that.

“I was standing in the street on a rainy day with the

survey in my hands feeling miserable, when I looked

up and saw a ‘for sale’ sign outside Bourne Hall, a

1930s Wesleyan Chapel. I thought oooh...”

Ian, who worked as a chartered surveyor for 25 years,

explains why he fell in love with this landmark building in the

heart of Hastings Old Town. ‘I love big spaces. As a surveyor I

specialised in shopping centres, I could walk into an old shop

and immediately work out how to cut and carve the space up.’

He’d worked with Tunbridge Wells architect Michael

Winter on a previous project and knew he was the

man for this job. Ian’s next task was to persuade the

planners that the hall could be turned into three luxury

town houses of roughly 2,000 square feet each.


39 surrey-homes.co.uk


Above: Three levels were created in the huge space, linked by a bespoke staircase. The light is by Christian Cubina.

It took 12 men to lift the glass floor of the mezzanine into place

“Other developers had wanted to turn the hall into multiple

flats which the council conservation officer didn’t want to see

happen. The only way I could get planning permission for

three dwellings was to promise to restore the building to its

former glory. That meant completely replacing the Portland

stone façade and putting in metal windows throughout.”

Fast forward a year and in a relatively uncomplicated build

the three spaces were completed to the high standard Ian

envisaged and the conservation officer was happy. Ian and

Lisa chose one to live in and sold the other two to finance

the build. The only real sticky moment was the discovery of

a buried basement which meant they had to dig a six foot

structural supporting wall. As they dug down, they discovered

an amazing slice of history with a message in a bottle.

“It was a handwritten note from the original builders

dated 1939. They wrote how bombs were raining

Above: The neon portrait of the Queen is by Philip Oakley, from

a painting by Danny Mooney, both local artists Right: The twostorey

oak shelves are by German firm Hulsta

down outside as they were building a Wesleyan Chapel.

In turn my builders left their own message.”

The wow factor Ian and Lisa brought to their house

is evident the moment you step through the front door

onto a glass mezzanine floor. “It took 12 men to lift

it into place,” admits Ian. “But it was worth it.”

The entrance space is dominated by a neon light picture of

the Queen designed by Hastings-based lighting artist Philip

Oakley. (The original drawing it was based on is by another

local artist Danny Mooney.) It couldn’t look more perfect

– or regal - than warmly lighting this uber modern space.

Standing on the mezzanine it’s genuinely hard to

know where to look first. The three internal storeys

are linked by an incredible helical staircase especially

designed for the space, which dominates the centre

of the house, winding up all three storeys.

Ian confides how a “similar staircase in a Chelsea town

house might set you back £100,000. Instead I found

a firm of joiners in Gathurst who built it from MDF

with a central steel supporting core. I got both this one

and one for the space next door, made for 30k.”

For a bargain piece of joinery (£15,000 per staircase

being a bargain considering the scale and size), it’s an

outstanding and clever piece of statement design.

The glass mezzanine wraps around into a bank of huge

white walls with a solid-floored living area. A grey and

lime green corner sofa from contemporary Italian furniture

brand Ligne Roset, from Wells Interiors, hugs a corner.

By the glass balcony is a pair of vintage ‘slice’ chairs, with

a Ligne Roset table in black and lime green Perspex, topped

with a chinoiserie vase that matches nearby cushions.

The vase and cushions give the air of being terribly

expensive but were bought from the same Habitat collection

a couple of years ago. “Cheap but effective,” says Ian.

On the floor is a wonderful silver and white rug with

a metal thread skull and crossbones woven in.


43 surrey-homes.co.uk


Above: The kitchen, by Alpine Joinery, is at one end of the ground floor living area

The clean white walls are a showcase for some of Ian and

Lisa’s diverse art collection. Behind the sofa is a Boyd &

Evans photograph of Pueblo Laguna church in Mexico. On

the other side is an original British railway poster of Hastings

that Ian bought at auction just as he decided to move here.

As the staircase winds down to the split-level ground

floor – the area Ian calls the “heart of the house” – more

art lines the walls, from original 1960s photographs

of actresses Liz Taylor and Catherine Deneuve to an

iconic 1980s print of actress Brigitte Nielsen by fashion

photographer Herb Ritts and a lovely soft-toned acrylic

on glass painting by Nicholas Fudge (a contemporary of

Damien Hirst) and a 1960s mugshot of a young Al Pacino.

“One of the best things about this house is that it’s

possible to display really big bits of art. In our previous

house we couldn’t do that. Large spaces can be hard to

use. People often have the instinct to break them up

with partition walls but there’s no need to if you can

break up a space with art and colour.”

That said, Ian did resist his instinct

to paint the walls a darker shade.

“I’m normally a dark paint, wallpaper

type of person. I always said I never wanted

to live in a white house because it would

be too boring. I’ve surprised myself by

keeping this all white, but I’m pleased I

have. And I’ve learned that once you get

into white you start to get boring about all

the difference shades of white out there.”

And there is certainly colour aside

from the art. The ground floor living

area showcases plenty of warm textiles

and furniture in soft greys and blues.

At one end sits a huge 70-inch TV.

“Lisa went crazy when I ordered it”, Ian

laughs. “She said there’s no way you are having

that thing in the house. But it’s funny because

I look at it now and think it’s not quite big

enough.”

A step down is the dining and kitchen area

dominated by a white extendable dining table

and blue upholstered chairs (more Ligne

Roset) leading into a grey kitchen area, a space

Ian wanted to look as minimal as possible.

Despite its size the whole area is both

Above On the mezzanine balcony, the Perspex table is by Ligne Roset and Ian bought the model boat from The Conran Shop

cosy and warm with nice personal touches, such as some lovely

tactile Victorian Easter egg chocolate moulds on the wall,

(aside from being a Shakespearean scholar Lisa is a trained

pastry chef who makes her own brand of artisanal chocolates)

and a lovely set of vintage brass scales which came from a junk

shop in Bexhill.

The kitchen area is flooded with light from the glass

mezzanine directly above. But it’s from this bottom level

that the other main ‘wow’ element of this house really shines

- the incredible floor-to-ceiling open library shelves which

rise up and up and up uniting all levels of living space.

The oak shelves were made by German firm Hulsta, via

Wells Interiors. The size did create some challenges though,

requiring internal scaffolding in order to put it together.

The loveliest thing about them is that the contents

are most certainly not minimal, they hide a multitude

of knick-knacks and family junk such as Lisa’s collection

of decorative chicken ornaments, family photos, jigsaw

boxes, Pokémon toys, fossils and holiday mementoes.

Ian picks up some doll-sized plates and a bust of Mussolini.

“Where did these even come from? I can’t remember.

I’m blaming Lisa, she’s the hoarder”, he laughs.


51 surrey-homes.co.uk


Above: A sitting area on the first floor. The sofa is by Ligne Roset and the photograph of Pueblo Laguna in Mexico is by Boyd &

Evans. The skull and crossbones rug is from Sunniva in Tunbridge Wells

But on closer inspection Ian must admit to a bit of

hoarding too. There’s a collection of Star Wars toys and

jigsaws, Lego pieces and a large amount of Harley Davidson

memorabilia, from boxed Harley Davidson Barbie dolls

to mini metal-display bikes – all indisputably his.

There’s also a picture of Ian meeting the actual Queen,

not just the neon version hanging in the hallway.

“She was really chatty. I thought she’d just shake my hand

and move on, but she talked and talked. She was wonderful.”

The cavernous shelves are also home to Lisa’s collection of

Penguin classics. Ian does a quick count and stops at 500.

“She’s been collecting them for years. I think she’s probably

singlehandedly driven up the price on eBay,” he jokes.

Developing the building themselves meant a few perks. The

only outside spaces – a 400 square foot roof terrace at the top

and two smaller terraces - Ian and Lisa added to their own

house. The tiled terrace, planted with pots of pretty seaside

grasses by local garden designer Tony Howard of Harborough

Nurseries, is littered with scores of crab and mussel shells.

“It’s the seagulls,’ explains Ian. “They drop crab

and mussels from the sky onto hard surfaces, so they

can break the shells open and eat them. It was a bit

odd at first, but we’re completely used to it now.”

The gulls clearly aren’t scared off by a fabulously

fun fibreglass Jaws head which Ian picked up

in a junk shop in Tunbridge Wells.

Also on this floor are three good-sized bedrooms

and two bathrooms, which only exist as they do

because Ian was able to get planning permission to

rebuild and raise the original roof by a metre.

The master bedroom suite is a masterclass in discreetly

minimal storage designed by Ian and built by local tradesman

Wayne Kent. A sleek wall of oak-panelled built-in cupboard

boxes line one wall, the warm walnut mirrored on the

internal doors and bookshelves elsewhere in the house.

The bedroom is styled with cheery cushions and

throws in clashing yellow patterns, a green cocktail chair

and a little kidney shaped table with brass topped legs

that looks like a mid-century find, but Ian confides

is from Ikea, and some fun 1950s style prints.

The two guest bedrooms are equally cosy and inviting, one

housing more of Lisa’s collection of decorative chickens.

Less impressed though are Ian’s grown-up children. He

jokes, “We were only able to move from our old family

home into this place because we had an empty nest and the

children had left home. But when they visit, they are all

Above: A specially designed helical staircase, built from MDF by a local company, dominates the centre of the house

very annoyed they don’t have their own bedrooms anymore.”

The main bathroom is effortlessly simple. The use of

a floating basin and w.c. which sit above the floor, tricks

the eye into thinking the space is bigger than it is.

It’s clear this home has been developed with love,

talent and skill by a couple who understood exactly

what they wanted to gain from the space. Solid building

techniques to exacting standards, imaginative design,

a few key heirloom pieces, art chosen not for its value

but because Ian and Lisa loved it, some clever bargains

and a whole host of fun family life smattered on top.

But now that it’s all finished it is time for them to move

on again. The couple plan to sell the house next year so

they can finance a self-build – a long-held dream.

Ian explains, “We’ve got the plot and the planning

permission and I’m raring to get started on it. It’s

very contemporary and all open plan. I couldn’t go

back to a normal house with rooms after this.

House

With a skilled eye for uniting inside with out, interior

designer Lisa Evans has made a High Weald cottage

into a sophisticated home

Using nature as an inspiration for interior design

is appealing; many of us are drawn to prints

that use flowers, birds and other natural motifs.

We make patterns with them, colour schemes and

artworks, but interiors expert Lisa Evans is inspired by

the natural world in a textured, raw and earthier way.

A visit to her house in the exquisitely pretty village of

Frant, near Tunbridge Wells, becomes an immersion into

a sensual world of texture, scent and elemental forms.

Happily for me, this all starts in the garden. We are sitting

in Lisa’s idyllic home office space, built at the bottom of her

garden and looking back along a central brick and stone patch

to the house. The garden building helps to enclose the outside

space, the idea being to make it feel like another room.

“All you would need is a sliding glass

roof over the top,” laughs Lisa.

Left: The convex mirror is from a Slovakian railway

station Below: Candles from Ensor Interiors

The garden was designed by Bonnie Lamont and the

planting is glorious; there’s a demurely softening froth of

Nepeta, Campanula and Cosmos in the borders on either side

of the paving, punctuated by stately foxgloves, bay lollipops

and low yew mounds. The colour scheme is elegant - blues,

whites and cream, all set off by soothing deep green foliage.

“I wanted a low maintenance and pretty space,”

explains Lisa. “I put together a mood board and

Bonnie and I came up with an initial plan - and

then my builder and I put it all together.”

The view from the garden room takes in the whole

garden and continues through the house right to the

front door. “It was very important for there to be a

one line of sight all the way through,” says Lisa.

The house is as open plan as possible and the bi-fold kitchen

doors open right out and bring the garden in. “This space is

a major part of the house and yes, it is another room, really. I

sit at the kitchen table and look out onto it all year round.”

This is where the structural evergreens and garden

features really come into play. There are some

ingenious touches too, not least the clever use of

storage - for bins and garden equipment that disappear

under a living roof of catmint and Euphorbia.

An old rustic verdigris copper kettle acts as a central planter

in the middle of the garden, contrasting beautifully with a

more modern rusted steel fire bowl, which sits on a plinth near

the garden room. This was a bargain of a find from Homebase.

“I love the texture of rust, and the dark greens of foliage

- the earthy colours,” says Lisa. “And the juxtapositions -

the old copper kettle planter next to a raw modern fire

67 surrey-homes.co.uk


Above left: The deconstructed chair in the drawing room is made by Ensor Right: The pumpkin lamp base is from Porta Romana,

the wicker wreath is from Ensor. The seed pod is a holiday memento

bowl, old and new should mix together. You don’t have

to have all new, or all old - that can be too contrived.”

Lisa owns and runs Ensor Interior Design with

showrooms in both Frant and Cuckfield. She bought

her cottage, just down the road from the showroom,

when she acquired the business in 2016.

“I wanted to be near. I did consider living above the

showroom, but I just love looking out onto the garden.

Frant is a fabulous place to live. Our showroom overlooks

the church and this house is very near, so it was ideal.”

Lisa is very involved in the day-to-day running of

the showrooms and strives to make them enticing to

her clients. “We create areas within the showroom

in order to present our work. People can come in to

buy gifts, fabrics, anything that we can supply.

“We have an appointment system for the pattern room,

as we need to be able to give the clients our undivided

and individual attention. We do not charge a design

fee, any charge is covered by what we sell. Everything is

made by hand in the workroom, so it’s all bespoke. For

instance, the sofa bed in the chalet is a one off. All sofa

beds are made to order, to whatever size you want.”

Once the house was bought, Lisa lived with the

original layout for a year, getting the feel of it,

planning the work and instructing an architect.

“When I moved in, there was a little galley kitchen and

a separate living area, it was cramped to say the least. So

I completely refurbished, putting in new plumbing and

electrics. There is underfloor heating. There’s no space in the

house for radiators. We used a massive amount of concrete in

the living area, put in underfloor heating, then insulated all

the walls and added a new front door. Now it’s really cosy.”

sentence if the work on your house is dragging,

The master bedroom is the only room in the house where Lisa used a different paint colour – Squid Ink by Paint and Paper Library

because the speed of this refurbishment was fast.

“My builder Neil Griffin did the house in three

months,” Lisa smiles. “He also made the chalet and

did all the hard landscaping in the garden. He’s

even been in today to wash the windows. It’s been

fantastic. He and his team have done everything.”

A good builder is invaluable, but an experienced

and knowledgeable client is just as vital. “I’m decisive.”

Lisa says. “I know what I like. Neil suggested I had

a different floor, but I said I’d rather wait,”

The floor is from Bailey Wighton in Tunbridge

Wells. “It has grey and some hints of yellow. The

colour and texture was perfect.” The company also

supplied and fitted all the carpets in the house.

As you would expect from her profession, Lisa has a strong

sense of colour and texture and both are of paramount

importance in a scheme. A case in point is her choice of

colour for the interior walls – the same one has been used

throughout. This has the effect of unifying and enlarging

the spaces, providing a backdrop and soothing the senses.

“I wanted it to be dark with elements of green,” she

explains. “l chose Tarlatan from the Paint and Paper Library.

I’ve used it before so knew how it would look. It’s important

to have warmer colours when using the greys; blue-grey is

cold and needs mixing with ochre elements to warm it.”

Similar colours have been used for the curtains and the soft

furnishings, so the whole cottage is luxuriously enveloped

in warm grey. “I like really thick fabric,” she says. “I like

If you’re looking for patterns and prints here, you will

have to look very hard. “It’s a masculine look,” she says.

“A statement look. You can create detail with contrasting

bands of colour - it doesn’t have to be pattern.”

Remarkably, the only bits of pattern in the entire house are

the timorous beasties featured on the cushions in the sitting

room and the chalet - and upstairs in the back bedroom there

are some cushions covered with a delicate Mark Alexander

fabric. “These are the prettiest things in the house,” she laughs.

The success of a scheme ultimately lies in the detail

and this is evident in Lisa’s business life at Ensor Interior

Design too, where curtain making is a speciality.

“Attention to detail and experience is key. You can be

the best designer in the world and something will happen that you’re not

prepared for.” Knowledge and experience keep things on track, so to speak.

“Before I bought the business from Mary Ensor I worked very

closely with her for eight years. She’s passed on so many tricks with

fabric that the girls have worked out over all their years here - how not

to show the seam, balancing the curtains, joining up the pattern.

“We prefer to do lined and interlined curtains to get an elegant look.

All the blinds have blackout linings, otherwise light shows through the

fabric when it’s against the window - and then you can’t see the pattern.”

The curtains in the garden room are a case in point. They have

been lined with a complementary fabric, rather than curtain lining.

“This is important,” explains Lisa. “It means that I’m not looking

at the lining from the outside when the curtains are drawn.”

Throughout the house there’s evidence of Lisa’s skill as a designer

and also of her keen eye for a find. There’s a fabulous pumpkin lamp

base from Porta Romana and a beautiful contemporary painting by the

artist Liesha Yaz that epitomises Lisa’s love of nature and its colours.

“I love shopping and sourcing items,” she says, and will often

buy several pieces from the same place. She found the large

“I think you should have bigger things - and less of them,” she says,

indicating the huge circular Slovakian railway mirror in the sitting

room. “I love this mirror. It reflects the light, but also reflects the

other areas and the rust within the glass reflects the textures of the

house, the juxtapositions of rough with smooth, old with new.”

The basin cupboard in the bathroom is an old Indian

cupboard, its rough rustic patina rubbing along nicely

against the smooth sleekness in the rest of the room.

More contrasts of old and new are found throughout the cottage. In

the master bedroom, for instance, there’s a new headboard, but there’s

also an old chair covered with a loose cover made from old grain sacks.

“I always try to update things rather than discard them - if

you have a good quality sofa you can change the covers, add

loose covers, new cushions and refresh the look.”

Interior design is an art that takes time, knowledge,

a sense of place and an understanding of how people

use their living space. To be successful in the field takes

determination, flair and an ability to translate and guide the

tastes of a client in order to help them find their individual

home style and deliver a unique and appealing interior.

To this end Lisa’s own house is often used as a set

for Ensor’s products and is featured in their catalogues.

But this is no set; it is a living, breathing reminder of

all that is good in local interior design and furnishing.

And for this hardworking interiors expert, above all else,

it is a much loved, comfortable and happy home.

Full English

Perhaps it’s the rigour of its vertical plan, but the classic townhouse seems to

inspire owners to be wonderfully bold with paint and decoration

Ros Byam Shaw’s beautiful book,

Perfect English Townhouse is a

tribute to one of our loveliest of

vernacular home styles – the multi-storeyed,

terraced or semi-detached, uniquely

urban dwelling that is the townhouse.

The thirteen houses featured in the

book date from 1670 to 1965, but

while they span historic eras from the

Stuarts, through Georgian, Regency

and Victorian, right up to the reign

of our own dear Queen, they share a

special appeal: a familiarity of layout and

proportion that just feels right to the eye.

On top of all that is common among

them, each of the houses in the book

is wonderfully quirky and original,

packed full of ideas to aspire to –

repaying repeated visits to the pages.

One theme that particularly jumped

out at us as worthy of further study

is the way all the houses balance very

strong colour and vivid prints, with lots

of art, features and collections – yet

never look cluttered, messy, or hectic.

We’ve come to the conclusion that the

secret is having a certain proportion of

balancing neutral tones in natural materials,

be it in original wood floorboards, linen

upholstery, sisal flooring, bamboo, rattan

and wood furniture, or wicker details.

Here are some of our favourite examples

– followed by suggestions of how to achieve

such exquisite colour balance at home.

▲ This 18th century house in a South London square was restored after being

previously divided into flats. Frank Hollmeyer uses this first floor room as a study.

The panelling, which he put back in, is painted in Farrow & Ball’s Brassica

The first floor drawing room of the

same house is painted in Farrow & Ball’s

Cale Green, a flattering background for

the 17th century Dutch flower paintings.

The cushions are made of antique Middle

Eastern fabric from Susan Deliss, who also

made the ikat lampshades

▲ A bedroom in a London terrace designed by Peter Moiret in 1967 as a 20th century take on the townhouse. Textile designer

owner Charlene Mullen designed the hand-embroidered cushions and the rug. The mid-century bed is by Hans Wegner


7 surrey-homes.co.uk


▲ Gavin Waddell created this kitchen in a first floor reception

room of his Cheltenham townhouse. The wallpaper is by Cole

& Son and inspired the colours of the cupboards and table. He

designed the bamboo shelving himself

▲ This London house was built in the 1670s. A flokati rug

marks out the seating area of the reception room which opens

onto the dining room and kitchen. The 1960s vintage fabric on

the blind is Pheasant Moon by Hans Tisdall

Beauty

Scrub a dub dub

Josephine Fairley is welcoming the new year, with fresh new, exfoliated skin

Each New Year I like to think of myself as ‘shedding a

skin’. Leaving bad habits behind, embracing new ones

and generally, loving that clean-sheet-of-paper feeling.

But I also literally like to shed a skin, at the start of each New

Year, via exfoliating products.

By now, the central heating’s been on for months. And

did you know that your clothes are actually acting as a wick,

extracting moisture from your body? Christmas and the

festivities take their toll, too and the problem with dry skin

is that it starts to look flat. It doesn’t refract light in the way

healthy, dewy, plumped-up skin does and it can get flaky.

Simply piling on moisturiser, though,

doesn’t cut it. Dusty, dry surface cells just

don’t soak up nourishment and moisture

the way that new cells do. So the answer

(to paraphrase the Daleks) is simple:

‘Exfoliate! Exfoliate!’

I have a positive arsenal of scrubs and

exfoliators in my bathroom. They’re

among my favourite products because they really are the

fast-track to better-looking skin. So this month, I thought

I’d point you in the direction of some favourites of

mine – and of the many women who’ve trialled

Liz Earle Gentle

50ml

products for the Beauty Bible Awards, which

have now been running for 23 years.

A repeat winner is REN Moroccan Rose

Otto Sugar Body Polish, £34 for 330ml,

which I also truly love myself. With its almost

photo-real scent of roses, this sugar-based

scrub also features olive extract, cane

“Dry skin doesn’t

refract light in the

way healthy, dewy,

plumped-up skin does”

ESPA

Detoxifying

£38

Tickled Pink

Yuzu, Pink Beets

& Watermelon

Scrub, £20 for

250g

sugar crystals and Paraguayan tea, along with a kola nutderived

caffeine extract to boost skin microcirculation. As the

product dissolves in the bath, it’ll whisk you to a rose bower.

Other longstanding favourites include ESPA Detoxifying

Salt Scrub, £38 for a hefty 700g – I positively swoon for

its grapefruit, cypress and eucalyptus scent – and Voya

Effervescence Nourishing Sugar Scrub, which is 75% certified

organic ingredients and works to transform tired, dull-looking

skin with a natural and aromatherapeutically fragrant blend of

seaweed, almond and sunflower oils.

Lately, I’ve also discovered the Natural Spa Factory which

offers an astonishingly wide portfolio

of scrubs to buff skin beautifully

clean while leaving it lightly veiled in

nourishing oils, perfect for that ‘at-home

spa’ experience.

Tickled Pink Yuzu, Pink Beets &

Watermelon Scrub, £20 for 250g, is

probably my favourite – a silky-textured

scrub based on chunky salt granules, along with antioxidant

beetroot pieces and powder, which gives a lovely pinkflecked

look. These are suspended in a base of skin-nurturing

grapeseed oil and peach kernel oil, leaving skin veiled in

moisture and nourishment.

Happily, plastic ‘microbeads’ have been outlawed now, for

ecological reasons – and there was really no need for them

anyway, when there are so many natural ways to deliver

equally good results. But you might notice that none of my

hot tip scrubs contain crushed particles like pumice or nut

shells. There are two reasons for this: a) these can scratch

skin, if used over-zealously, and b) I personally find

nothing alluring about having a gritty bottom from

sitting on a layer of particles that don’t dissolve in

water.

Salt and – preferably – sugar scrubs do dissolve. And

the reason I prefer sugar is simply that I’m a gardener,

and salty scrubs sting wounds acquired when, for

instance, pruning roses. As long as I haven’t been in the

wars with my secateurs in hand, though, salt’s fine.

Personally, I also like my scrubs to come in an oil

base, which not only makes for easy application – small,

gentle circles is enough – but also leaves skin

with a veil of oil. I then like to smooth on

body butter, for a skin-quenching doublewhammy.

Exfoliator, £35

can buff skin with a loofah or

Cleanse & Polish Body Gentle Mitt Cleanser, £17.10 for

200ml. One side is like a flannel, the other ‘looped’ and a

little rougher – but still gentle, as the name promises. You use

it on damp skin, paying particular attention to anywhere that

needs a little extra smoothing and exfoliating, such as knees

and heels.

Best of all, it has that amazing, signature Cleanse & Polish

fragrance – a head-clearing rush of eucalyptus oil which so

many of us associate with getting our faces clean, at night.

And faces need exfoliation just as badly as what’s below

the vest-line. Again, I have a wide range of weapons at my

disposal. (My bathroom shelf resembles the arcade game made

famous by Tipping Point…) A new favourite, though, is Gaia

Naturally Face Exfoliator, £35 for 60g, gaiaskincare.co.uk, from

a Devon-based award-winning spa whose all-natural products

I adore. This combines sugars and calendula oil, and has the

finest texture, infused with a glorious citrus scent of petitgrain,

mandarin and clary sage which delivers a huge pleasure factor

as you gently work it into facial crevices.

Liz Earle Gentle Skin Exfoliator, from £12 for 50ml, is

another of my go-to facial scrubs: deliciously creamy, kind-toskin

and infused with that familiar eucalyptus.

I also love Origins Never A Dull Moment, £28 for 125ml.

Here, the polishing agent is actually crushed papaya, which

works to deliver radiance via enzymes which dissolve the

dead cells rather than physically scrub them away. And at

the incredibly affordable end of the spectrum, there’s Yes to

Grapefruit Uneven Skin Tone Facial Scrub, £7.99 for 110ml.

I’m a massive fan of the ‘Yes’ products (as are Beauty Bible

testers, who’ve given them many of our awards over the years)

and this zesty exfoliator, featuring naturally skin tone-evening

grapefruit, is suitable even for daily use. Although, I think

scrubs should be used on the face just two or three times a

week, ideally.

So don’t leave it till the bikini season’s looming to get in the

habit of blitzing your skin. Face or body, regularly removing

those cells – and the watchword, always, is ‘gently’ – is one

of the best favours you can do to your skin. I promise you’ll

almost hear your ‘new skin’ slurping up whatever you choose

to smooth into it, afterwards.

A Year of Wellness

Eminé Rushton gets real about the serious health dangers of sustained stress

– and suggests how to bring essential balance back into our busy lives

January: The Truth About Stress

In 2016 the World Health

Organisation (WHO) Global

Burden of Disease Survey estimated

that by the year 2020, stress-related

mental health conditions will be the

second most common cause of disease

(after ischemic heart disorders). Oh my.

New Year, with its optimistic tradition

of good resolutions may not feel like the

best time for a spot of sobering reading,

but let’s be honest – how many of us

find ourselves feeling exhausted and

overwhelmed at this time of year?

With Christmas over, the reality of

over eating, over drinking

and over spending sink

in and while it can be

lovely to catch up with

family, that can also bring

its own unique stresses

– and sustained stress is

something we all need to

start taking very seriously.

If we take a look at the physiological

impact this might have upon our bodies,

we’ll see that periods of sustained

heightened stress keep us in a holding

pattern of increased cortisol and

adrenaline. The former is our stress

response hormone, the latter, our ‘fight

or flight’ hormone and while they are

both essential for human survival in

extreme situations (or they were when

our ancestors were at risk of sabertoothed

tiger encounters), if they are

permanently ‘on’ they can cause serious

damage. So if we don’t give ourselves

ample opportunity to catch our breath,

properly rest and wholly unwind, our

stress levels can tip us over into chronic

health conditions.

“Stress is something

we can take

active steps to

alleviate – almost

immediately”

“Rather than helping us push

through, this pressure can make us feel

overwhelmed or unable to cope,” says

the Mental Health Foundation.

When the BBC’s Dr Rangan

Chatterjee announced earlier this year

that he no longer believed poor diet to

be the biggest contributing factor to ill

health, naming stress instead as the main

culprit, a lot of people sat up and started

to take notice.

But, as bleak as this may sound, there

is some good news. Unlike a chronic

untreatable disease, stress is something

we can take active steps

to alleviate – almost

immediately.

Lifestyle factors make

up the main causes

of excess stress in our

modern lives: lack of

sleep, too much time

online, overly busy

lives, insufficient restorative time, but

hearteningly these are the easiest to

rebalance. Here are some tips.

1. Draw clear lines between work and

rest. Get into the habit of putting your

Out of Office on your email when you

are off work, and don’t feel compelled

to respond. You are paid to work certain

hours, not to be eternally ‘on’.

2. Mute your WhatsApp if it’s

overwhelming and turn off all apps via

the notification centres. Get used to a

life that is not dominated by bleeping

symbols. Realise that life does not begin

or end with your device.

3. Almost all devices now have inbuilt

timers and switch off modes – so

when you have had your 30 mins on

Instagram, it will turn itself off. Instal

Night Mode onto your devices too,

to ensure that if you must be online

late, you are at least cancelling out

that cortisol-raising blue light. Better

still, switch off entirely at least an hour

before bedtime, every single night. Light

a candle, read, bathe – learn to leave

‘life’ behind, and choose rest instead.

4. Build a daily meditation habit.

“Mindfulness and guided meditation

apps can be really valuable for

improving wellbeing and aiding

relaxation,” says Eve Critchley, from

mental health charity Mind. If you’re

a tech addict, put it to better use:

download Headspace, Calm, Aura or

Stop, Breathe and Think.

5. Go to a regular yoga class. All

yoga classes have a guided yoga

‘nidra’ meditation at the end. Even

better is a dedicated yoga nidra

class, which is all meditation.

6. If there are things about your

life – from work to home – that

are continually overwhelming

you, make a bold and honest list

of what you can realistically do

to lessen their impact. Can you

say ‘no’ more often, and

give yourself a break?

Can you retrain or

study on the side,

to move into a role

that is better-suited to

your strengths and passions?

7. Visualise, don’t dream – focus

on what is really possible, and

how you can begin 2019 with a

resolution that will ease your

stress levels, for good.

Natural wisdom

Sophie Parker is the founder of Betony and Sage, creating organic

scented candles, incense, room mists and smudge sticks to keep

your spaces (rooms and head...) naturally clear and fresh

Sophie is a keen environmental

conservationist, passionate about the

natural world and a true believer in the

healing power of nature. Her organic

products are made with the addition

of foraged ingredients sustainably

harvested from around her home.

What one piece of seasonal wisdom

helps you as we move from autumn to

winter? For me, winter is time to take

stock and follow nature’s lead by slowing

down. I find the best way to absorb

this transition is a meditative walk in

the woods, to notice the changes in the

natural world; the leaves as they turn

amber and golden, the birds relishing

the glut of rowan berries, the rich and

dark earthy smell that has been absent

all summer. In these moments, I feel

the energy change on the wind and take

heed of the guidance all around me.

What one self-care ritual do you never

skimp on? Every day I spend time

with nature, without this I start to feel

disconnected. For me the healing power

of time in nature is indescribable. It’s

my wild medicine, my way to root and

ground, to connect to life’s simple and

most important pleasures.

What’s cooking in your kitchen this

month? I have been busy creating

elderberry syrup. This vitamin-rich

syrup is a winter essential for our

household and is a real joy to create – I

adore the deep purple hues that stain

the wooden spoon and tint my fingers.

As the evenings are b eginning to carry

a chill on the air, we are cooking more

homegrown veg in our stew pot.

Share one book that taught you

something amazing about life. Wild

by Cheryl Strayed, a memoir of a 1,100

mile solo hike along the Pacific Crest

Trail in the US. I read this book at a

real low point and it gave me hope.

What always brings a smile to your

face? My gorgeous dogs! We rehomed

a Romanian stray in December 2017

and have a Labrador retriever who

is now four. They are such huge

characters and have so much love to

give, they are a delight and always

bring me such joy.

What is the best treatment you’ve

had locally? I really enjoy practising

yoga and regularly attend classes with

Ashlyn of Fisical Mind and Body,

along with the beautiful classes at

Kingdom Penshurst. Yoga helps to

free my body and relax my mind.

Toasty Toes

According to Ayurveda and Traditional

Chinese Medicine, the immune system can

become challenged when the feet get cold.

In Ayurveda, we massage warm sesame oil

into the soles of the feet to bring heat back

to the entire body and improve circulation

and this is particularly lovely before heading

to bed on chilly nights, as it is said to aid

restful sleep too. Socks made from natural fibres, such as

breathable yet insulating wool, cotton, bamboo, or traditional

sheepskin slippers (check out Forage Somerset foragesomerset.com)

will keep tootsies toasty at home. And if out and about, battling

the elements, nothing beats a pair of trusty M&S fleece-lined

tights, which I’ve worn beneath my jeans on nippiest mornings!

2019 The Year to Restore

Your Feminine Wellness

As a result of childbirth, and the natural

aging process, experiencing looseness,

dryness, and other symptoms in your

vaginal area is common. The side

effects of which can be diminished

physical sensation during intercourse

and urinary incontinence.

Stress incontinence (releasing small

amounts of urine upon coughing,

sneezing, laughing or exercising) and

urge incontinence (strong need to

urinate, but can’t get to the toilet in

time), or needing to go to the bathroom

many times during the night are more

common especially with postpartum,

menopausal or postmenopausal women.

While many women feel self-conscious

about their condition and hesitate to

seek advice or treatment, we offer a safe,

non-surgical treatment with CO2RE

Intima at Bella Vou, Pantiles Clinic.

What does CO2RE Intima treat?

Utilising the advanced laser system, the

CO2RE laser treatment is a 10 minute

procedure which is carried out at 4 week

intervals over a three month period.

This course of 3 treatments can help to

alleviate multiple symptoms including:

• Dryness

• Itching

• Burning

• Painful intercourse

• Leaky bladder

• Fallen bladder/Prolapse

• Loose vaginal appearance

• Loss of sensation during intercourse

These symptoms can occur in different

combinations and varying severities. At

Bella Vou, Dr Rohit Seth and Nurse Lesley

provide one-on-one complimentary

consultations and will discuss your

condition in a relaxed, discreet setting

to ensure your comfort and privacy.

How Does the CO2RE Laser Work?

The CO2RE laser system is designed with

you in mind, providing a comfortable

treatment experience. Similar to having

a smear test the CO2RE Intima laser is

inserted inside the vagina. The gentle laser

energy is pulsed into the inner and outer

vaginal tissues, resulting in coagulation

and stimulation of collagen. These changes

begin immediately after treatment but may

take the prescribed number of sessions for

optimal results.

What Results Can I Expect?

This latest technology in non-surgical

vaginal rejuvenation features multiple

benefits for patients, including:

• No downtime

• No anesthesia

• No invasive procedure

• 30-minute sessions that are

convenient to schedule

• Immediate results for patients

As the CO2RE Intima system does not

require any downtime or healing, most

women are able to return to normal

activities, including full enjoyment of

intimacy a week after treatment. Dr Rohit

Seth and his clinical team will create a

customised treatment plan for you based

on your condition and continue treatment

until your full results are achieved.

Restore, revive and renew your feminine

wellness with CO2RE Intima at Bella Vou,

Pantiles Clinic. Contact us today on 01892

257 357 for a free consultation to improve

your vaginal health and quality of life with

this non-invasive, no downtime solution.

Bella Vou CO2RE Intima Patient Reviews

Lauren M, 42, Kent - I have suffered

stress incontinence since having my

children and thought there was nothing

that could be done without surgery. I

was wrong! The treatment is painless

and quick and I was made to feel relaxed

from the initial consultation right

through the procedures. The treatment

is effective with immediate results that

still keep improving weeks later.

Lauren P, 36, Kent - A friendly but

professional team of people that made me

feel super at ease at every appointment.

I am amazed at the results of my recent

treatment with Rohit and can’t begin to

thank him enough for the difference it’s

made and neither can my husband.

Naomi, 36, Kent – Super shocked after

the first treatment! This treatment has

changed my life, it was easier than having

a smear. It’s given me more confidence

in all areas of my life, going exercising

is no longer a worry and my partner

and I are enjoying the benefits too.

Angela, 38, Kent – Brilliant! My

stress incontinence has more or less

disappeared. My sex life is great, I’m

more confident and feeling like a whole

new woman. Can’t believe it! I’m telling

all my friends about this treatment at

Bella Vou. Thank you Rohit and Lesley x

Sandrine, 48, Kent – As a mother of five and

a Pilates instructor whose main focus has

always been on strengthening pelvic floor,

I had still experienced issues with dryness

and pain probably due to perimenopause.

Since having the treatment these have

been resolved not only am I tighter in

that area but I’ve also noticed that I can

run for longer distances without needing

to go to the toilet. My sex life is great,

better than before. Age or having children

shouldn’t stop you from enjoying life.

Vegan Black Bean Chilli with

Avocado, Lime and Tomato Salsa

Serves 4 Prep time: 5 minutes. Cooking time: 25 minutes.

This is my vegetarian daughter’s favourite meal. It’s ready in 30 minutes is packed with

flavour, plus the black beans are a great antioxidant and source of protein. Serve with rice

and you have a perfectly balanced vegan meal. The salsa freshens the dish.

• 1 tbsp olive oil

• 3 peppers sliced

• 1 red onion chopped

• 3 garlic cloves crushed

• 800g (2 cans) black beans, drained

• 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

• ½ tsp smoked paprika

• 3 tsp chipotle paste

• 400g passata (or tinned tomatoes

mashed with a spoon in the pot)

• Salt and pepper

For the salsa

• 1 avocado chopped

• 100g cherry tomatoes roughly

chopped

• Juice of 2 limes

Wine+

This vegetable-based dish needs

freshness to match the lime and

the tomato salsa. I love the flavours of

a Sauvignon Blanc from the wine ‘New

World’ (not Europe!) that stand up to the

grapes higher acid content. So go for the De

Grendel Sauvignon Blanc 2017 from South

Africa Waitrose £11.99. Lots of lovely

vibrant fruit and not as herbaceous

as some New Zealand versions.

• 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

• 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

1Sauté the onion for 5 minutes before

adding the garlic and peppers.

2Colour for 2-3 minutes before adding

the balsamic vinegar. Let it bubble for

a few seconds then add the black beans,

paprika, chipotle paste and passata.

3Add ½ tsp Maldon salt and a few

grinds of black pepper. Simmer for 15

minutes.

4While it’s cooking, prepare your salsa

by combining all the ingredients in a

bowl with a pinch of salt. Serve with rice

and your salsa.

112


Wine+

Such a lovely spicy winter

warming dish would require a wine

without high tannin content and with

some freshness. A lovely fuller-bodied

dry or off-dry rosé would work well. These

wines work just as well in the winter as they

do in summer paired with the right food.

I would go with the dry version and try

the superb Sainsbury’s Santa Julia

Malbec Rose from

Argentina £11.

Slow Cooked Beef and Beetroot Curry

Serves 6 Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 4-6 hours in a slow

cooker, low oven or Aga simmering oven.

Aside from giving this curry an amazing colour, the beetroot adds

a sweetness and richness. Serve with rice, a dollop of yogurt and

fresh coriander.

• 700g cooked beetroot -

either cook your own or

buy pre-cooked beetroot

(but not in a jar, it has to

be fresh not pickled)

• 10cm ginger, peeled and

chopped

• 4 garlic cloves crushed

• 2 red chillies deseeded

• 30g bunch fresh coriander,

stalks chopped, leaves

reserved

• 6 cardamom pods, seeds

removed

• 2 tbsp tomato puree

• 2 tbsp brown sugar

• 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

• 2 tbsp ground cumin

• 1 tbsp ground coriander

• 2 tsp fennel seeds

• ¼ tsp ground cloves

• 1½ kg stewing beef steak -

feather blade works well

• 3 tbsp olive oil

• 2 onions chopped

• 200ml beef stock

• 1 tbsp garam masala

1Chop the beetroot into

large chunks and in a food

The great escape

Travel

Got that January cabin fever feeling? There’s

an amazing world out there waiting for you,

so don’t just dream about it – book it!

The Grenadines

Star Clipper

Simply Caribbean

Natasha Griffin, founder

For next year, we’re going through

a lot of change. A lot of people are

booking long haul, because they are

concerned about Europe – and, of

course, in the Caribbean the weather is always good.

People want value for money and a great way to achieve

that is to have a twin-centre holiday, so you get two

experiences in one trip. In Saint Lucia there is rainforest in

the north and beach in the south, so you can do a week of

guided treks and then a week lying in the sun. Or you could

combine a week in Saint Lucia’s rainforest with a week in

Antigua, which has 365 beaches.

People love to have new experiences and in Saint Lucia

you can do zip wiring, bird watching, visit the volcanic mud

baths and the drive-in volcano, or get a cable car up one of

the mountains, called the Picons. Or you can do a guided

trek up Grand Picon and look at the view. You can book all

those things when you book your holiday, or our reps can

organise it all once you are there. A very popular one for

families is called ‘Chocolate – tree to bar’. You pick the cocoa

pods and then make the chocolate.

Another great combo is part hotel, part sailing. On a fullycrewed

yacht, you can go round the Grenadines and visit all

the little islands like Bequia, Tobago Quays. Or you can go

on the Star Clipper, which is a luxury sailing ship. You can get

involved with the sailing or the rigging - or you can just lie

around all day. That leaves from Barbados and travels through

to the Grenadines.

HAPPY

NEW YEAR

TO ALL OUR CLIENTS

There’s a lot of change in the market. Older clients want to

chill out with the family, younger ones want a story to tell on

social media and there’s a big growth in combined holidays.

Sri Lanka is very popular for that because you can go on a

three-, or four-day tour, visit a wildlife sanctuary, then go on

to a lovely beach.

Another popular choice is flying with Emirates and having

a few days in UAE, then going on with a direct flight to the

Maldives or Seychelles.

Or, if you don’t want to go that far, you can do three

centres within the UAE. A few days in the city, then on to

the amazing luxury Ritz Carlton tented resort in the Al Wadi

desert nature reserve, where each villa has its own private pool

and you can ride camels or horses in the desert. Then head up

to Abu Dhabi for the white-sand beach.

A wonderful place for unspoiled beaches is the Zanzibar

archipelago in Tanzania. There are two or three top end

hotels, including the Residence, which is a stunning resort on

one of the best beaches in the world. From there you can also

do a mini safari. We tell people, go now – it won’t stay this

unspoiled for ever.

In Europe there is a massive upsurge in interest in

Greece, luxury all-inclusive resorts. It used to be seen as a

bit of a bucket and spade destination, but now it’s going

more upmarket. Hotels are offering platinum plan serenity

indulgence five-star packages, where you get everything

included.

Seeds of

hope

The days are short, damp and dark, but Jo Arnell doesn’t

care – she’s got her head deep in the seed catalogues

Seedpod of Nigella

‘African Bride’

As soon as the last Christmas card is in the recycling,

or even before, I am flicking through the seed

catalogues. Every year I promise myself that I won’t

buy so many, sow too many, won’t go too mad. After all, I

have a good stash of home-collected seeds already - and not

much time or space even for these. But I’m going to have to

admit to you, right here on the page (imagine I’m standing at

the back of a room somewhere) that I am totally addicted to

seeds.

I just love the magically simple act of sowing a few tiny

grains and watching a plant (an actual plant!) burst from

something minuscule and inert looking. It is so exciting. It

isn’t always as easy as this though, and things can go wrong.

If you have ever tried to grow something from seed and

failed, take heart, because it probably wasn’t your fault. Seeds

need to be triggered into germination. Most

of the time annual seeds just need a bit of

warmth and moisture (and sometimes light)

to get going. Annual plants have but a short

time to do their stuff, so are in a bit of a hurry.

Perennials may take longer and some need to

go through a period of winter before they will

even think about germinating.

What a seed needs

Warmth - Plants have evolved over millennia to recognise

when spring has arrived. Seeds are primed to germinate in

the warmth, as this means that conditions for growth and the

chances that they will make it to maturity, have improved.

Some plants need more warmth than others, depending on

where they have originated in the wild. Notice how a great

rash of weeds pops up as soon as the weather outside starts

to improve and take your cue that the conditions for sowing

directly outside into the soil are just right.

Moisture - Again this is a spring thing and to do with plants

being in harmony with the seasons. Whether it’s a thaw in

an alpine meadow, a rainy season, some April showers, or a

dribble from your watering can, exposure to water will nudge

plants into growth.

Light - This is not always needed; seeds normally germinate

under the ground and until they have grown a leaf containing

chlorophyll, they cannot photosynthesise. Instead, they respire

and therefore need oxygen more than light at the point of

germination. Very quickly after this though, they do need

light; bright and indirect, in order that their delicate new

“To extend the

flowering season, I

often sow two lots

of annual flowers”

leaves don’t scorch. Seedlings quickly become etiolated and

leggy when it isn’t bright enough, so if you are growing them

inside, a warm and bright north facing windowsill should be

perfect.

Soil - Because seeds need oxygen for germination, it is

important that the compost is free-draining with lots of tiny

air pockets. Seeds bring their own food with them (which

is why we eat them), so ordinary ‘grown up’ compost may

be too rich. Seed compost (available at most garden centres)

has been specially formulated to be finer, and grittier and

more suited to the needs of seeds and cuttings. As soon as the

seedling grows its first pair of true leaves, it needs to be potted

into a richer mix.

Vernalisation (winter dormancy) - This is plants’ way of

making sure that tender seedlings don’t start growing at

the wrong time. It normally happens with

perennials and woody plants. You may

need to sow the seeds in the autumn and

leave them outside in a sheltered place to

go through winter, or cunningly put them

through a fake winter in a bag of damp sand

in the fridge for a bit in order to break their

dormancy. Seed sowing instructions should

be provided by the producer, so do not use this method

unless it is indicated – or if all else has failed. Do warn your

family too; it’s annoying if they discover and disturb (and

possibly tip away) the contents of the mystery package…

Direct sowing versus sowing under cover

It’s easy - and very tempting - to empty the packets into your

hand or pocket and go scattering seed around the place. After

all, this is what the plants themselves do and if you like the

self-sown, slightly random and natural look, then this could

be the method for you.

The problem comes when the seeds start germinating,

because they usually do this at the same time as all those

other random self-seeders – the weeds. But if you are sowing

vegetables it pays to grow them in neat rows, as you can then

hoe in between the rows and keep the weeds to a minimum.

There is also a neat trick, which involves preparing

the soil, waiting for a couple of weeks until the weeds

pop up, then hoeing them off – without disturbing the

surface too much. You can then sow your seed into the

clean soil. The same method can be used in the borders

with annual flower seeds, but here you can vary

the shapes; rigid rows of flowers are great for a cutting

garden, but less natural looking in a mixed border.

Sowing under cover and then pricking out and potting

on seedlings is a time-consuming task, it’s true, but it

will give you ultimate control over where exactly your

plants are to grow. The other big advantage – and this

is the reason I tend to favour it – is that you can protect

your tiny plants from the ravages of the unpredictable

spring weather and worse: attack from pests.

Tender plants

If started off early these must be sown indoors and will

need bottom heat for good results. You can buy an

electric propagator with a clear plastic lid to keep the

plants in their own mini greenhouse environment. A

warm window sill might just do the job, but watch out

that your babies don’t scorch in the early spring sunshine.

The advantage of sowing early is that you’ll be able to

get a head start on the season and have a display of

flowers or a crop of vegetables earlier in the season.

Tomatoes, for instance, need a long growing

period in which to grow and ripen their fruit.

Our summers aren’t always as long as the one we

experienced last year, so the earlier they are sown,

the earlier you will be picking ripe tomatoes.

To extend the flowering season, I often sow two

lots of annual flowers like Cosmos and Nicotiana; one

under cover in late winter and then another, directly

into the borders once the soil has warmed up in April.

There can still be frosts until May though, so watch the

weather forecast before putting tender plants outside.

Hardening off

This is a process that entails gradually accustoming your

sensitive seedlings to life outside in the garden. Start by

putting them out for a few hours each day, bringing them

in as the temperatures drop in the evening. Cold frames

and cloches are a useful half-way house, being sheltered,

but unheated. After a week or so the plants can be left out

and then planted in their permanent positions. If they are

shoved outside unceremoniously, they may, like some of

us, get a hard shock and then fail to thrive, or worse…

Vegetables

We are not necessarily growing vegetables to save money.

As my father-in-law points out, a cabbage at the shops

is only 50p (and has less caterpillars in it), but there

is immense satisfaction in growing something from

scratch, perhaps an otherwise expensive crop that is hard

to find in the shops, a weird and wonderful blue potato,

or deliciously unusual variety of kale. Who wouldn’t want

to grow a tomato called ‘Black Krim’, or a leek named

‘Gladiator’? Last year I grew a fantastic variety of Swiss

chard called ‘Pink Flamingo’ which had shocking pink

stems. Nobody wanted to eat any, but I was extraordinarily

proud of the plants and they looked gorgeous.

One of the other great things about growing

vegetables from seed is that most of them are annuals,

so are raring to grow and will germinate almost as

soon as you open the packet. If you buy F1 hybrids,

they have been bred to be reliable and uniform - to do

exactly what it says they’ll do on back of the pack.

On the other hand, heritage or heirloom varieties are

those that have been bred down through the generations

for their unique characteristics. These are more likely

to have been cultivated for their flavour and may look

less tidy and regular, but will probably taste amazing.

You can also collect the seeds of heirloom veg to sow

again next year. Do not bother to collect the offspring

of F1 types though, because the next generation will

revert back to another previous, less desirable strain.

It’s still too early and too cold to start sowing much

this month, but we can be making plans (it’s what

keeps me going in these cold, dark days). Let’s stay in

the warm, peruse the sumptuous seed catalogues and

dream of the spring. It will be here before we know it.

Education

Sport outside the box

Not all kids love the classic team and gender-assigned games, so forward-thinking schools are

introducing different activities to inspire a lifelong love of exercise

Football is a big deal at Bede’s – and their

most successful team is the Ladies’ First XI

Bede’s has a national reputation for footballing

excellence, with regular county, regional and national

titles for the school’s teams and many pupils work

as part of premiership academy sides, from Chelsea and

Charlton Athletic to local side Brighton & Hove Albion, with

whom Bede’s has a development partnership.

But while Bede’s boys won the U18 English Schools

Football Association Cup competition in 2009, the school’s

current highest achieving side is its Ladies 1st XI, who last

summer became U18 English School Champions.

“Girls’ football at Bede’s has been on a real journey,”

explained Bede’s Director of Sport, David Byrne.

“Traditionally, independent schools are so-called ‘rugby

schools’ and Bede’s is already an outlier for putting football to

front and centre.

“While for years we supported having girls playing within

our boys’ sides where possible, we didn’t have a dedicated

girls’ football programme. But the demand was there and

Bede’s is a school where pupil voice really carries. The girls

said they wanted a football programme, so we built one.”

Starting in earnest under the leadership of Bede’s Director

of Football David Caryer and in tandem with outreach

coaching

assistance from

Brighton & Hove Albion, Bede’s Ladies enjoyed

early successes, with girls earning county, regional and

national caps, and in some cases signing to professional clubs

including Chelsea, but silverware was somewhat evasive.

That was, of course, until last summer, when the Bede’s

Ladies won the ISFA U18 National Cup. “I think that one

of the best things about the side that won the competition

is that not every girl in that team considers themselves to be

seriously sporty,” Mr Byrne continues. “For some of them, a

career in professional sport is undeniably likely, but for many

more they only really started to play for the team because I or

another member of staff encouraged them to give it a go.

“Even now, some of them don’t seem to understand the

gravity of having won a national championship. They just

want to play, and I’m honestly prouder of that than

anything else.”

Roy Headey, Director of Sport

at Hampton Court House,

believes in the importance of

young people building strength –

through weightlifting

AlpineFrenchSchoolS50.indd 1 22/11/2018 11:24

Children are taller and heavier than they used to be –

but they are also weaker and less fit than they were 16

years ago, according to a British study, published in the

Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport.

The researchers found they scored worse in tests including

sit-ups and grip strength and the decline has been speeding up.

There had been a 20% decrease in absolute muscle strength and

a 30% decrease in muscle endurance over the 16-year period

studied.

“Inactive lifestyles are a health risk, but physical fitness is the

single best measure of health in childhood, adolescence and

on into adulthood,” said Dr Sandercock, who led the research.

“Poor fitness and inactivity lead to multiple health problems in

their adult life.”

Dr Sandercock said the current concept of a ‘healthy weight’

was misleading and that using Body Mass Index (BMI) in

isolation was not an effective way to monitor health. Of the

children studied, 80% had a normal BMI, but one in three of

those was found to be unfit.

At Hampton Court House, we are embarking on a

programme specifically designed to increase strength in our

pupils – introducing safe-lifting technique as part of the

curriculum, progressing to teaching Olympic Weightlifting.

Strength is a key foundation for an active life and we will

provide that foundation.

Hampton Court House’s sporting philosophy centres upon

our pupils’ finding sports or activities they can be passionate

about for life, because a physically active lifestyle will only

happen as a result of each child’s discovery of joy in their sport

of choice. This is our overall goal, but strength is our first

priority in terms of physical development.

The idea of young children lifting weights is still

controversial, with claims that lifting weights at an early age will

lead to stunted growth, fractured growth plates and inflexibility

as a result of becoming ‘musclebound’.

But none of these fears are borne out by the evidence: with

good coaching and qualified supervision there is actually a very

low risk of injury to children who participate in weight training

– in fact it is considerably lower than those of many of the

traditional team sports that are commonplace in our schools.

Injuries that were sustained by children while weight

training generally come down

to one factor: poor supervision.

When unsupervised the chances

of a young athlete attempting

to lift with poor technique

or with too much weight

dramatically rises. It also

Education

increases the chances of ‘horseplay’ in

the weight room; not surprisingly, the

most common injuries to children in

the weight room are a result of dropping

weights on their own hands and feet.

Many parents still fear that lifting weights

at an early age will stunt a child’s growth;

there has never been any scientific evidence

that youth weight training is harmful to the

normal growth and development process,

but in fact youth weightlifters commonly

display higher than average bone density.

Weight training also helps young athletes

develop strength. After a two-year study,

researchers compared the strength of children

who had lifted weights to those of the same

age who had participated only in games.

Those in the weightlifting group had gained

significant strength compared to the others,

without any reports of significant injury.

Youth athletes who lift weights are also

less likely to sustain injuries in other sports

in which they participate and they also

recover from injuries faster when compared

to teammates who don’t lift weights.

There’s much more to gain from school sports than winning

– here are some of the benefits parents have told Roy Headey

their children gain from sports and physical activity

“We want them to have the experience of feeling so tired when they are

playing that they want to quit, but don’t – because they can’t let their teammates

down.”

“The times they come home from school too tired to go to their training, but

they go anyway.”

“To learn to take care of their bodies and to look after equipment.”

“To experience collaborating with others, to understand that teams are

bigger than individuals, to care about others and to share.”

“To learn to be gracious – whether they win or lose.”

“To understand and respect rules – and the people who are responsible for

making sure they are upheld.”

“To learn there are no magical shortcuts to success and that expertise takes

years of practice. Also that failure is an essential part of learning and not to

be feared.”

“For life-long friendships and memories - for the sheer joy they feel when

they master a skill that once seemed to them to be unattainable.”

Education

New Year –

new attitude

Hilary Wilce suggests the month of highminded

resolutions is a good time to talk

to children about their aspirations

It’s the start of the New Year – but not in schools.

There the new start comes in September, when hopes

and intentions and expectations are all sky high. In

schools, January is a time for settling into the long slog

towards exams and the distant summer holidays.

But that doesn’t mean teachers and parents can’t have New

Year resolutions and if I could wind the clock back to when

my children were young I would resolve to do everything in

my power to make them see that they can change the world.

In fact I know two women who have done exactly that.

One went to Africa as a post-graduate student, wondered

why there were so few girls in schools and twenty-five years

later has helped put more than two and a half million girls

through school, creating a vibrant, pan-African alumni

network of more than quarter of a million educated young

women, all now helping each other to become professionals,

set up businesses and serve and change their communities.

A second young woman felt so sorry for refugees

suffering through winter in the Calais ‘jungle’ that she

started collecting winter clothes for them. Three years

later she is running a leading refugee charity, supporting

refugees throughout Europe and the Middle East and

called in by governments and international agencies to

advise how they can best respond to the migrant crisis.

But you don’t have to be this focused and philanthropic

to change the world. I would want to tell my children that

everything they say and do can have influence. In fact, I

would turn that thought around and say to them that nothing

they say or do is without some sort of impact in the world.

Everything leaves a ripple. Every smile and frown. Every

kind act and moment of bad temper. What do you want your

ripples to be like? And, remember, you always have a choice.

There’s no law that says you have to shout at your brother,

or do a skimpy job on your maths homework, or drop wet

towels on the bathroom floor for someone else to pick up.

In fact, starting today, you could begin to make

some changes. Not because you have to, but because

you want to. You could become someone who

willingly takes their turn looking after the family

dog, or who aims to solve problems among friends

rather than relishing all the fights and arguments.

And this goes on and on, all the way through life. You

could, I would tell them, grow up to do an ordinary job, or

be a person who decides to always do their job to the very

best of their abilities. You could grow up to do nothing but

hang out on social media in your spare time, or commit

to do some volunteering and be willing to help others.

And deciding to be this sort of person, I would tell them, is

almost bound to make you happy – as the Chinese proverb so

succinctly puts it, “If you always give, you will always have.”

Of course, childhood is often a selfish time

and none of us are saints. But it’s the intention

that’s the important part of this.

So if my children were young again, I would say to them

at the start of this new calendar year : at very least think

about what you’re doing, what you’re saying, and how

you’re behaving. Is this how you want to be in the world?

Are these the ripples you want to create? And, if not, how

do you think you could start to change them? And –

most importantly – is there anything I can do to help?

The IB school that opens the right doors.

Edmund Broadhead joined Sevenoaks when he

was eleven. The IB subjects he explored later in the

Sixth Form were Mathematics, English, Chemistry,

French, Physics, Economics and Theory of Knowledge.

“When it came to choosing a university degree

course, I was able to make an informed decision.

I’d been so engaged by the curriculum at school and

so well prepared for the path ahead that I selected

Engineering with absolute confidence.”

Which may also explain why the University of

Cambridge opened its doors to Ed.

Child arrangements

following divorce -

crucial things

to consider

One of the toughest things about a separation is making

those crucial decisions about children, from where they’ll

live to how often they’ll see each parent.

If you’ve recently separated or are going through a

divorce - there are certain very important things you

need to consider.

Choose a Family law expert

Navigating children’s issues can be tricky to say the

least, so choose family law solicitors who are known

for their work in divorce cases involving children.

Three major Issues to consider

There are three major issues to decide when it comes

to child arrangements after separation.

• Where children will live

• How both parents will continue to pay for all the

things the children need

• How you’ll ensure that children spend enough time

with both parents and, crucially, when and where

this will happen.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to answering these

important questions, and there are likely to be many

other smaller issues to decide too. However, these three

considerations are an excellent starting point. Our family

law solicitors know that sorting out child arrangements

can seem incredibly daunting and confusing at the start,

but getting clear plans in place for these three things will

give you a very strong foundation.

Consider Mediation

Not all couples agree on every matter relating to child

arrangements following divorce - in fact, you may

completely disagree. However, it’s important to realise

that even if you have very different opinions about what

should happen, there’s no immediate need to rush into

fighting it out in a courtroom.

Many family law solicitors, including some of the

Slater and Gordon team, are members of an organisation

known as Resolution, which aims to find alternatives to

litigation (legal action) to resolve family disputes.

Resolution champions non-confrontational methods

of resolving issues, which include mediation. Mediation

provides a safe, calm and measured space in which to

address conflict and try to see things from the other

person’s perspective. It can help to clarify what’s really

in the best interests of your children, and what views

and opinions are borne out of a testing and emotional

time in both of your lives.

Child Arrangements Order from the court

If you and your former partner can’t agree on the best

arrangements for your children after you separate,

you may need a court to step in. Family law solicitors

will usually recommend that you try mediation and

constructive negotiation techniques to find a resolution

to the dispute, but this doesn’t work in every case.

In situations like this, you might need to get a Child

Arrangements Order. Applied for by either parent, the

first stage of the process involves a court attempting to

encourage the parents to reconsider whether they can

reach an agreement outside of the courtroom. If not,

further hearings are scheduled, witnesses called and

the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support

Service (commonly known as CAFCASS) may also

be called upon to relay the child’s views to the court.

A decision will be arrived at stipulating certain

conditions about child arrangements for your family.

Expert advice regarding child arrangements

If you’re getting divorced and are struggling to come

to an agreement about child arrangements with your

partner, you don’t have to handle the situation alone.

The Slater and Gordon team are highly experienced in

all legal matters involving children. We’ll always treat

you and your family with care and sensitivity, and share

your goal to find the best solution.

Inheritance tax planning

for nice people

The shameless dodging of unscrupulous international corporations and high-profile

individuals have given tax planning a bad rep – but done correctly it’s ethical and sensible

Stephen Horscroft,

Managing Associate, Cripps

Attitudes towards ‘acceptable’

tax planning have changed

dramatically over the past

decade. Both legal and social

standards have shifted and with

them our expectations of good

practice. Think of the reputational

damage to certain corporations (Amazon and Starbucks spring

to mind) and to high profile individuals named and shamed

for taking questionable actions to minimise tax bills.

The government continues to introduce increasingly strict

anti-avoidance rules. ‘DOTAS’ (disclosure of tax avoidance

schemes), for instance, requires certain advantageous tax

arrangements to be logged with HMRC, allowing it to keep

tabs on perceived loopholes being exploited.

The GAAR (general anti avoidance regulations) are

designed to limit avoidance opportunities available. This

clampdown, coupled with media incrimination of tax

avoidance, has created significant social stigma around

legitimate tax planning.

There are still many tax-planning opportunities using tax

breaks that allow the taxpayer to remain within the legal

tax-paying remit. Confusion over what is and what is not

acceptable when it comes to tax planning can be addressed

with professional advice; tax experts can help you to make the

most of the planning opportunities available whilst ensuring

that your position is both honest and protected.

Inheritance tax is a common subject for counsel. An

especially divisive and emotive issue, inheritance tax is

becoming increasingly problematic as high house prices in

the South East lead to a rise in family assets. Houses often

represent a large proportion of an individual’s wealth and

children find they are forced to sell their parents’ home in

order to pay the tax bills on the deaths of their parents.

Some of the numerous ‘vanilla’ tax-planning tools, widely

regarded as an acceptable means of protecting assets, are

outlined below. These include inheritance tax-planning ideas

as well as some capital gains planning.

Lifetime gifts which carry no inheritance tax implications

There are a number of gifts which can be made annually

during lifetime without any inheritance tax implications after

death. These include an annual exemption of £3,000 per

donor; gifts made out of surplus income; gifts on marriage;

and unlimited small gifts of up to £250.

Gifts to charity

Gifts to charity are exempt from inheritance tax and there is a

further benefit. If 10% or more of an estate is left to charity,

then all non-exempt gifts are taxed at 36% instead of the

standard 40%. The idea is to encourage individuals to leave

money to charity. However, it does not apply to all charities

globally and so specific advice should be sought.

Spouse exemption

If a couple is married or in a civil partnership, often the ‘bite’

of inheritance tax is only felt on the death of the second

party. This is because married or civil partnership couples

qualify for a ‘spousal exemption’, meaning that anything can

pass between couples without

inheritance tax becoming payable,

either during lifetime or on

Entrepreneurs relief

From a capital gains perspective, to encourage

entrepreneurs, each individual has a potential £10 million

of gains which can be taxed at 10% rather than the

standard 18% or 28%.

To qualify for this, certain criteria must be met; the

applicant must be, and have been, a director, officer or

employee of the company for at least one year (two years

from April 2019), they must hold at least 5% of ordinary

shares in the company and the company must be a trading

company.

Finally, timing. Many wait until retirement to consider

planning of this kind. However, regardless of age, if you

have children or other dependents it is important to

consider the future sooner rather than later.

By seeking professional advice, you can clarify how to

maximise your assets both during your lifetime and for

your family further down the road while also avoiding

the pitfalls of aggressive tax planning which may be

unacceptable to HMRC.

Surviving the Holidays

Specialist divorce and family lawyer Jessica May of Peters May answers your

questions ahead of the festive season.

Q. If you are divorced or separated how do you sort the arrangements for the

children over the holiday period?

A. This can be a particularly stressful time if you are divorced or separated

and you need to agree the arrangements for the children. How much time

should the children spend with each of you? What if one parent wants to

travel abroad with the children over Christmas? Try and agree the

arrangements concerning the children early. Don’t leave it until December.

It is far better to sort out disputes directly with your former partner and

reach an acceptable agreement. Try and have a parenting plan and go

through your respective diaries to see what is fair and what works for all

of you. There is no formula or one size fits all.

What do the children want? If you simply can’t agree then you might

need professional help such as mediation, assistance from a solicitor

or even from the court. A parenting plan in the form of an annual

diary, with the children and each adult knowing where the children are

over each holiday for the next year works well. Each parent will need

to compromise and put the interests of the children first. If a parent

wishes to take the children abroad they need the consent of each

person with parental responsibility, usually the other parent. If this

is not given, they need the permission of the court. A very standard

arrangement at this time of year is alternating Christmas Day each

year between parents. Try and agree your contact arrangements

a year ahead, probably every December for the following year but

recognise that both parents need to be flexible and sometimes

contact dates have to be changed on both sides.

Q. I have decided to get divorced in the New Year. What do I do?

A. Often people do not want to upset the home over the

festive season even if they are very unhappy. However,

once the holidays are over there are an increased

number of divorce petitions filed at court. Things to do if

you have sadly decided that there is no way forward

with your marriage:

• Find your marriage certificate. You will need that.

• Take some time to make sure this is what you want.

• Get some initial advice from a specialist family

solicitor so that you know your rights, find out

what a court would do and find how much it

will cost you to get a divorce.

• Discuss your options with your solicitor. You

might need to see several solicitors before

you find one that is right for you.

• Gather your financial documents.

• Develop your support network to help

you through a difficult time.

Jane Howard’s

Fables from

the Farm

It’s calving time and Jane is wondering if

she will get any sleep

So that was Christmas. I love it, especially the

anticipation, but come Boxing Day I’m done and

looking forward to the New Year and whatever joys and

challenges that might bring.

One thing for definite will be the patter of tiny hooves

in the cowshed. Gorgeous George, our Sussex bull, spent

most of last winter in splendid bachelor isolation, but in

early April we let him in with his girls and nine months later

we’re looking forward to the consequences. It’s a very special

time and after twenty years still every bit as awesome and

incredible to witness.

However leading up to the birth there’s always a lot of

uneventful watching and waiting – maximum observation,

minimum intervention is the mantra - and the prospect of

leaving a warm cosy bed to pad down to the cowshed to

confirm that nothing is happening is not such an exciting

prospect. But it seems that technology might have ridden to

my rescue with the MooCall.

In the days leading up to calving there are

quite a few clues from the cow that she’s going

to calve soon. Her udder starts ‘bagging up’,

filling with milk and becoming firm rather

than floppy. Her shape also changes. As the

pelvic bones relax it has the effect of making

it look like her tail head is rising up above her

backbone to become far more prominent.

As it gets closer still she will likely move away from the herd

and find her own quiet corner. But when her labour actually

starts, it goes without saying there is much discomfort and

subsequent swishing of her tail. This is where the MooCall, a

fag-packet-sized monitor, comes in. You strap it to the cow’s

Gorgeous George,

the bull

tail and it monitors this increase in tail swishing and phones

you up! How bloomin’ brilliant is that?

So in this imagined tech-savvy world I shall now sleep

soundly ariving just in time to safely

“In the days deliver the calf and watch her licking it, to

encourage it to get up and start drinking.

leading up to

And that’s very important because the calf

calving there are needs to drink about 2½ litres of colostrum,

the thick ‘starter, milk produced by the

quite a lot of clues” cow at birth, in the first six hours of life.

This special milk is full of the mother’s

antibodies, which the calf can only absorb for a short time

and they play a vital role in boosting the calf’s pretty limited

immunity.

But sometimes it doesn’t go according to plan. Especially

for first-time mothers, after pushing out a 30kg calf they are

sometimes startled, cross and not the least bit enthusiastic

about the prospect of motherhood. So then you have to tether

mum, give her a bucket of food (of far more interest than the

calf) and encourage the small, slippery calf to stand, find the

udder, latch on and suck. And not get kicked in the process.

A good trick is to squirt some warm milk over the calf’s

nose and ideally into its mouth – along the lines of a wake up

and smell the coffee message. However it’s easy to mis-direct

the squirt and end up with a faceful of warm colostrum which

is incredibly sticky and hard to wash off. Never mind, helping

an animal give birth is a wonderful experience and somehow I

think I will still be getting up every night to enjoy it even if I

do buy a MooCall.
