team was sympathetic to the impact of the works whilst we remained living in the house, and we were pleased with<br />

the quality of their workmanship. The team is well structured, and communication was good. We were always able to<br />

discuss issues either with Fred, the site manager, or Paul Merifield, and agree solutions quickly. The final results are<br />

fantastic and have delivered exactly the space that we were looking for.” Robin, Kingston<br />

Had enough<br />

of being<br />

overweight?<br />

No matter how hard you have tried in the<br />

past, The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme<br />

could just be the answer to losing your<br />

weight and keeping it off once and for all.<br />

It<br />

can be extremely soul destroying when you just can’t seem<br />

to lose excess weight, no matter what you do. If you have<br />

reached the stage where putting on any more weight is simply<br />

not an option for you, then read on!<br />

Improving your health<br />

Being overweight is no laughing matter<br />

when the physical strain on your body is<br />

starting to take its toll on your health.<br />

Your GP or your family may have<br />

expressed their concern and urged<br />

you to slim down – all very well if<br />

only you knew how to!<br />

Help is at hand to resolve your<br />

weight problem. Rachel and her<br />

team have helped over 6,000<br />

clients of all ages and from all walks<br />

of life to slim down successfully.<br />

Many come to see her as a last resort<br />

and are delighted to have achieved,<br />

and successfully maintained, the weight<br />

they want to be.<br />

A workable programme<br />

that’s easy to follow<br />

The Metabolic Weight Loss Programme is a straight forward and<br />

workable four-stage eating plan: the first two stages deal with weight<br />

loss, while the last two stages deal with weight maintenance. This<br />

highly successful tried and tested programme is easy to stick to and<br />

more importantly, it works.<br />

The expected average weight loss of clients is 7-14lb a month. As you<br />

can imagine, clients are more than happy with this motivating weight<br />

loss, especially for those who have struggled with their weight for so<br />

long.<br />

With an average<br />

weight loss of 7-14lb<br />

a month for clients<br />

and hundreds of hand<br />

written testimonials,<br />

Rachel’s results speak<br />

for themselves.<br />

Rachel Ricketts, Weight Loss Consultant<br />

Feeling and looking better<br />

As the weight falls off, time after time clients remark how well they<br />

feel, how much fitter they are and how their energy levels<br />

have increased. Typical health improvements include<br />

blood pressure, cholesterol, mental alertness, skin<br />

conditions and even fertility.<br />

Clients often comment on just how<br />

impressed their doctors or consultants<br />

are with their weight loss and health<br />

improvements. “My doctor is very<br />

happy - I’ve been able to come off<br />

blood pressure and cholesterol<br />

medication.” Another client’s doctor<br />

said, ‘All my lady patients on thyroid<br />

medication are struggling to lose<br />

weight, but you’ve lost 2 ½ stone<br />

despite being on thyroxin –well<br />

done!’<br />

One-to-one support<br />

Consultations are available every 7-10<br />

days with email support as needed. Clients<br />

welcome the very personalised support<br />

provided. Time and again, clients comment<br />

that they couldn’t have lost the weight without the<br />

support and encouragement of Rachel and her team.<br />

For those who are not able to visit, a very successful remote support<br />

service is provided throughout the UK and overseas. Distance is no<br />

object!<br />

absolutely no obligation.<br />

Martin Luther King once said that “Injustice<br />

anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”<br />

This is particularly prophetic to the areas of family and criminal law<br />

and in which my practice and I personally have always specialised.<br />

Being accused of something, you haven’t done or being deprived<br />

of a relationship, for example with your child, are prime examples<br />

when the might of the law is required in the pursuit of justice.<br />

At Venters Solicitors, we only specialise in Family and Criminal<br />

Law, two areas of the law, which involve individuals against<br />

one another and often the state against individuals.<br />

Over the years, the law has evolved to meet the demands of<br />

society. By way of example, we have a greater awareness of<br />

the impact on children their parent’s relationship breakdown<br />

has upon them and the need for their voices to be heard; we<br />

have greater sensitivity in the courts for witnesses when giving<br />

evidence and we have greater safeguards for members of the<br />

public who find themselves the subject of a police investigation.<br />

However, whilst all this amounts to an improvement to<br />

where the legal system was some 30 years ago, without<br />

specialist knowledge and support, those accessing the<br />

justice system are at risk of not achieving justice. It is one<br />

thing for the laws and rules to exist but it is another thing<br />

to know where to source them and how to apply them.<br />

For this reason, it is ever more important<br />

to source specialist legal help.<br />

Previous pages & above: The almost black walls of the sitting<br />

room provide the perfect backdrop for Jaz’s collection of artworks<br />

Houses on a residential street can blend into one.<br />

Especially if there is a row of them built as a<br />

set at the same time – but things can be very<br />

different within. As I discovered on a quiet road, where<br />

a fairly modest-looking Victorian artisan’s cottage on<br />

the outside turns out to be a wonderland within – and<br />

you’re right in it the moment the front door opens.<br />

As Jaz Rosten-Edwards welcomed us into her hallway, I was<br />

so jaw-dropped I could hardly stutter ‘hello’. The walls, ceiling<br />

and woodwork painted the rich, deep grey of Farrow & Ball’s<br />

iconic Downpipe and the fabulous 1950s Italian chandelier<br />

would be an impressive introduction on their own – but<br />

then there are the artworks. They cover the walls, ceiling to<br />

floor, both sides and all of them invite further investigation.<br />

A mixture of original paintings, black and white<br />

photographs, prints and mixed media pieces, all<br />

interestingly framed, you could spend a happy hour<br />

examining each one – and asking Jaz who they are by<br />

and where she found them. All of which she is happy<br />

to recount. She can remember all the details for all of<br />

them. This is a woman with a true passion for art.<br />

Which is why, she explains, taking me through to the<br />

dining room – equally dramatic with Hague Blue on all<br />

surfaces, walls covered with art works, plus sculptures<br />

and neon – and inviting me to sit at the (genuine)<br />

Saarinen tulip table, after a busy career in the<br />

<br />

49 surrey-homes.co.uk

This page: In the kitchen, Jaz has painted every surface – including cupboard doors, drawer fronts and tiles – a striking ultra-dark<br />

grey and changed the handles on the units. A lovely painting of a hare dressed in a velvet frock coat and ruff (above right) turns<br />

out to be a water and heat resistant Ibride tray which she attached to the ugly white front of the boiler with Command strips<br />

corporate world she came to open her own art gallery.<br />

The trading party of the gallery is online (and<br />

called oneoffto25.com because it sells a mixture of<br />

original art works and prints, up to editions of just 25<br />

pieces), but her house acts as a showcase for the works<br />

on sale, via her Instagram account @jazzierere.<br />

“I’ve always been creative and I decided to fulfil my dream<br />

to have a gallery, without the overheads of a bricks and<br />

mortar space. I post shots of works by the artists<br />

I represent in the house on Instagram, because is shows<br />

the art in its natural habitat and people can see them<br />

to scale. Then they can go to the site to buy them.”<br />

Prices are kept at the very affordable end of the art<br />

market, ranging from £35 to £120 for a limited-edition<br />

print and from £200 to £1,200 for a painting. This is<br />

deliberate because Jaz is passionate about inspiring as<br />

many people as possible to discover the joy of owning<br />

original artworks, which is so important to her.<br />

“I started collecting original works, because I didn’t<br />

want to buy disposable art. Original art evokes emotions<br />

and I want people to experience this when they choose<br />

it. I also want to help emerging artists by giving them<br />

exposure as well as helping them to sell their art.”<br />

And via her online service between artists and collectors,<br />

it is the joyful emotional aspect of choosing and owning<br />

original artworks that Jaz wants people to experience.<br />

“People ask, ‘what should I invest in?’ and I always say, ‘buy<br />

it because you love it’. It has to be a gut reaction. A sacrifice<br />

might be needed to buy it, but it’s worth it. I don’t think<br />

it’s necessarily good practice to buy everything you want.”<br />

This philosophy of buying thoughtfully and buying well<br />

holds true for Jaz for every aspect of furnishing a home.<br />

Her wonderfully rich environment – I wanted to get out a<br />

clipboard and ask her where she had found every single <br />

LilyMatthewsS60.indd 1 20/09/<strong>2019</strong> 14:27

Above: The majority of the furniture and lighting in Jaz’s home are vintage finds, but the new pieces she has chosen are of<br />

very good quality. A bright blue velvet-covered sofa on the opposite side of the dining room is by Designers Guild<br />

thing in it – is an eclectic mix of vintage, chain store, good<br />

quality new and unique, sourced over time with thought<br />

and consideration. Something she feels strongly about.<br />

“It’s important to think about sustainability and the<br />

impact upon the environment. I think we are moving<br />

towards fast interiors, and fast art type purchases. There<br />

are obvious parallels that can be drawn with fast fashion<br />

which has tainted aspects of the industry. I believe in<br />

buying well and buying once. Not in a snobbish way,<br />

but if you want a unique home, accept it will take time.<br />

Consider purchases, don’t go for instant gratification.”<br />

This is why, while the majority of the furniture and<br />

lighting in this home are very special vintage finds – like<br />

that chandelier in the living room, which is from The<br />

Old Cinema ‘antique and vintage department store’ in<br />

Chiswick – the items they source are of very good quality.<br />

Jaz, whilst citing another example of good quality,<br />

indicates a bright blue velvet-covered sofa on the<br />

opposite side of the dining room as being from<br />

Designers Guild who produce good furniture that lasts<br />

the test of time. “As my mum used to say, ‘the cheapest<br />

becomes the dearest’. I think about the supply chain of<br />

everything I buy – I try to be a mindful shopper.”<br />

Jaz takes the same quality-matters approach to paint – a<br />

smart move, considering the impact the strong colours<br />

throughout the house make. Taking me further on through<br />

what Jaz describes as ‘a long, thin house’, it’s a bit like<br />

gloriously strolling through a Farrow & Ball paint chart. With<br />

all surfaces Off Black in the kitchen, Studio Green (a rich<br />

deep green) in the bathroom and the utility room. A very<br />

bold change in a house which was all magnolia and peach<br />

when they bought it nine years ago. “It was very safe,” says<br />

Jaz. “But there’s no right or wrong, it’s just a matter of taste.”<br />

But while that kind of neutral scheme was very much<br />

not to Jaz’s taste, they haven’t done any structural work<br />

whatsoever on the house. Very unusual in these times of<br />

knocking through, opening out, going up and adding<br />

on. “We had architect plans drawn up to expand<br />

<br />

53 surrey-homes.co.uk

This page: Hands appear quite often throughout the house, the pair on the dining table, cast in<br />

plaster, are from Abigail Ahern. A large-scale painting of a girl over the fireplace is by Janet Stocker,<br />

a young artist who Jaz represents, whilst on the opposite wall is another large painting of a girl,<br />

more close up, by Juby Page, an artist Jaz stumbled upon by chance at an art fair in Chelsea<br />

into the loft, like other houses on our street have done,<br />

and have another bedroom and bathroom, but we<br />

decided with just the two of us, we didn’t need to.”<br />

Leaving Jaz to pour all her love and energy into the<br />

furnishings… Which start right at the back of the house, in<br />

the lowliest corner, the utility room, which is not only painted<br />

that lovely colour, it has a chandelier and artworks of its<br />

own too. As does the bathroom. Why would you leave a<br />

wall blank, when you can hang a beloved painting on it to<br />

admire and enjoy?<br />

“If you are going to include artwork in your bathroom<br />

it needs to be an oil painting, for example, so that it will<br />

not be too adversely affected by the environment where<br />

moisture and condensation may be an issue. I always<br />

This page: Although painted in deep, rich tones, the bedrooms<br />

are surprisingly airy, with light flooding in from large windows,<br />

reflected in touches of gilding and with greenery bringing a bit of<br />

the outdoors in Left: The zebra head pot, sourced from a shop called<br />

Hilary and Flo, is arranged with other pieces that Jaz has added to<br />

her collection over the years<br />

give my customers practical advice if they request it<br />

especially if they have not bought original art before”.<br />

Another detail I spot here yields a fiendishly handy<br />

tip – Jaz mixes real pot plants with faux ones. It’s a very<br />

clever way to fill your house with greenery, without<br />

creating an enormous plant-care workload requiring the<br />

time and commitment needed to rear a litter of puppies.<br />

Travelling from Studio Green to the Off Black of the<br />

kitchen there is another genre of Jaz’s art collection to<br />

enjoy, in very striking black and white ceramic pieces by<br />

Jude Jelfs, who she discovered at a ceramics show – part of<br />

the round of visits to galleries, art fairs and open studios<br />

which are now a crucial part of her business life.<br />

The kitchen also shows off Jaz’s inventive ingenuity.<br />

A print of a hare dressed in a velvet frock coat and ruff<br />

turns out to be a laminate tray attached to the ugly<br />

This page: Prints, paintings and sculptures of assorted sizes cover the walls on either side of the staircase<br />

white front of the boiler with Command strips.<br />

“It surprised a plumber. He’d never seen anything<br />

like it before, but had to admit it worked.”<br />

She’s taken no prisoners with the rest of the kitchen<br />

space – changing nothing physical, but painting every<br />

surface, including cupboard doors, drawer fronts and<br />

tiles, a striking ultra-dark grey, and changing handles.<br />

The ceramic stool in black and white, like the Jude<br />

Jelfs pieces, which looks like Fornasetti is one of Jaz’s<br />

considered new pieces, from Rockett St George.<br />

to get my eye in, after the initial surprise and<br />

“Hanging artworks depends on their weight. For lighter pieces you can<br />

use Command strips, which are removable, but I tend to use nails, screws<br />

and wall plugs. I do it all by eye, I never use a tape measure. I don’t<br />

want it to look perfect – I want it to look lived in, not precious.”<br />

This page: Jaz mixes real pot plants with faux ones. A very<br />

clever way to fill your house with greenery, without creating a<br />

plant-care overload. Textures throughout this bedroom, and the<br />

chandelier above the bed, add to its luxurious and inviting feel<br />

slight sensory overload (of a very thrilling kind) – I notice<br />

themes. Hands appear quite often, in two wonderful polyresin<br />

ones on the table from Abigail Ahern, some of which are<br />

Fornasetti and others found in a Brighton antique shop.<br />

But the thing that really jumps out from Jaz’s wonderful<br />

walls are faces. A large-scale painting of a girl over the<br />

fireplace, which has a dreamy, fairy-tale quality, is by<br />

Janet Stocker, a young artist who Jaz represents.<br />

On the opposite wall is another large painting of a<br />

girl, more close up, by Juby Page, an artist Jaz stumbled<br />

upon by chance at an art fair in Chelsea. Walking<br />

round by herself, she had seen and fallen in love with<br />

the painting – that gut reaction she talks about. “When<br />

I met up with my husband Mark later on, he insisted<br />

on taking me to see a picture he loved at the fair…<br />

and it was the same one. We had to have it.”<br />

These are just two of the faces in this room, with several<br />

more on the wall behind the Designers Guild sofa – including<br />

a pen and ink portrait of a woman which I particularly<br />

fall in love with, by celebrated artist Gill Button. “I like<br />

faces,” says Jaz, “because I’m interested in people.”<br />

The theme continues when we venture back<br />

into the hall, where that floor-to-ceiling hang<br />

This page & next pages: Pinks, greens and blues picked out in the<br />

artworks are matched by soft furnishings. Wallpaper printed with<br />

ornate panelling on one wall by Rockett St George breaks up the deep<br />

grey used to paint the walls, ceiling, wardrobe and door giving an<br />

illusion of ‘relief’<br />

demands some serious consideration – not least the<br />

practicalities of it. How does she hang them all?<br />

“Hanging artworks depends on their weight. For lighter<br />

pieces you can use Command strips, which are removable,<br />

but I tend to use nails, screws and wall plugs. I do it all<br />

by eye, I never use a tape measure. I don’t want it to look<br />

perfect – I want it to look lived in, not precious.”<br />

But while Jaz makes it sound as though she casually<br />

throws her artworks up, there are other picture-hanging<br />

skills involved to make them look as good as they do.<br />

As we turn into the sitting room, I’m struck by two<br />

pieces on the facing wall, which look so right together<br />

I assume they are by the same artist. One is an old<br />

painting, which has been painted over with the word<br />

FAKE in large pink letters. Below it is a round painting,<br />

on a pink background, also featuring overpainting.<br />

But it turns out they are by two different artists (Heath<br />

Kane and Marcie Kobernus, respectively) – and it’s<br />

“I post shots of works by the<br />

artists I represent in the house<br />

on Instagram, because it shows<br />

the art in its natural habitat and<br />

people can see them to scale”<br />

Jaz’s very considered placement that makes them work so<br />

well together, especially with an oval painting on a black<br />

background to one side and another smaller work with a<br />

black background completing the arrangement. “There is<br />

always a colour link when I hang pictures,” she explains.<br />

“I colour block to create a link between each room.”<br />

She has had plenty of practise, with the arrangements<br />

changing and evolving as new pieces – to sell, or to add to her<br />

own collection – come in and out of the house. You can see it<br />

on her Instagram feed, where there are several pieces hanging<br />

in different spots from where they were when I visited.<br />

No wonder she’s got nearly 25,000 followers on the app.<br />

Like her home, it’s full of interest and inspiration,<br />

curated by an expert eye.<br />

pieces, and find her on Instagram @jazzierere.<br />

State-of-the-art security<br />

roller shutters for homes in and<br />

around <strong>Surrey</strong> and Greater London<br />

ith burglary in <strong>Surrey</strong> on the increase,<br />

and in particular the targeting of<br />

high end properties by organised<br />

teams of burglars, Is it not time to consider a<br />

higher level of protection and peace of mind<br />

that Security Roller Shutters can bring?<br />

Are you a homeowner who is looking for extra<br />

protection for your property in <strong>Surrey</strong>, or one<br />

of the nearby areas of London? At the Security<br />

Shutter Group, we supply and install madeto-measure<br />

internal and external aluminium<br />

shutters. These security shutters are uniquely<br />

designed to offer you the absolute best<br />

protection against burglars and intruders.<br />

Your home represents a lifelong investment that<br />

you will want to keep safe from potential threats.<br />

Safety in the home, especially after a burglary for<br />

example, can prove a worry, especially when you<br />

are working or on holiday. Our premium security<br />

shutters provide the ideal solution. These discreet<br />

products will always offer you confidence, whilst<br />

never affecting the aesthetics of your house.<br />

Why use our services?<br />

• Robust and durable aluminium<br />

shutters made in the UK<br />

• Very competitive prices<br />

• Ultimate crime prevention product<br />

• Stylish and discreet designs, that can blend<br />

into any internal or external façade<br />

• Immediate intruder response<br />

• Swift and hassle-free surveys<br />

• Provides welcome peace of mind<br />

• Effective internal and external security<br />

• Automatic or simple remotecontrolled<br />

operation<br />

• A wide range of choice and made<br />

to your preferences<br />

The security shutters can work on a ‘detect,<br />

activate, secure’ basis. Our electronic window<br />

shutters can be sensor-activated, so as soon as<br />

they detect an intruder outside your house, they<br />

activate to secure the property by closing the<br />

shutters, which are lowered with motors, which<br />

are seamlessly incorporated into the design.<br />

They work both automatically or you can choose<br />

a remote-controlled option, which you can use<br />

when you are both <strong>inside</strong> and outside the home.<br />

Our shutters:<br />

• Are exceptionally strong<br />

• Feature Eurodrive tubular motors<br />

• Are excellent insulators against heat and sound<br />

• Are resistant against wind and water<br />

• Are quiet, with a reliable low-noise operation<br />

• Feature robust security specifications<br />

Security Shutters for your home – how do I get them<br />

installed?<br />

Having your internal security shutters and external<br />

security shutters is easy. Simply follow this seamless<br />

process.<br />

• Once you have contacted our team, we<br />

will ask a handful of questions about the<br />

window, doors or areas you wish to install<br />

shutters and the rough sizes. If you can<br />

supply us with photos of the spaces, this is<br />

particularly helpful because it allows us to<br />

provide a more accurate quotation. Shutters<br />

can be fitted on both the <strong>inside</strong> and outside<br />

of any domestic or commercial property.<br />

• When we have the information we<br />

need, we can provide you with a swift,<br />

no-obligation quotation. We pride<br />

ourselves on our competitively-priced<br />

domestic window shutters.<br />

• Once you have agreed to the quotation, we will<br />

conduct a thorough survey of your home. We<br />

will need to know what colour shutters you<br />

would like, as well as whether you wish for them<br />

to be remote-controlled. They are available in<br />

all standard RAL colours and bespoke colours<br />

are also available at an additional cost.<br />

• Once a final quotation has been finalised and<br />

accepted and a deposit paid, we can organise a<br />

date to fit your shutters. We work completely<br />

flexibly around your schedule and can install<br />

your new roller shutters in as little as one day.<br />

• We install your shutters, normally around<br />

two to three weeks after your order has<br />

been placed. Once completed, we inspect<br />

your shutters carefully and they are signed<br />

off, to ensure 100 percent satisfaction.<br />

• All of our security shutters have a 2 year<br />

manufacturers guarantee, which protects you<br />

against any issues. If you have any questions<br />

regarding aftercare, we will always be happy to<br />

answer them.<br />

Contact us now to arrange your no obligation, free<br />

survey and itemised quotation and have peace of<br />

mind that your home is protected.<br />

5TIPS<br />

to improve your<br />

Home Security<br />

Lee Wells, CEO of The Security Shutter Group<br />

Limited, explains the steps you can take to protect<br />

your property and posessions against intruders<br />

1Fit Security Roller Shutters. The immediate visual<br />

effect that roller shutters have on potential intruders<br />

can be a huge deterrent. If they are faced with a strong<br />

physical barrier, such as Roller Shutters, they will have<br />

to decide whether they try to smash their way through,<br />

making a lot of noise and spending a great deal of<br />

time, or whether to move on to easier pickings.<br />

2Ensure that all your windows and doors are secured<br />

with security approved locks. Burglars know how to<br />

defeat cheap locks and are usually equipped and capable<br />

of dealing with them. An insurance rated and approved<br />

lock can be both a deterrent and a barrier to entry. A<br />

qualified locksmith can help with your selection.<br />

3Fit or update an alarm system. There is no doubt that<br />

a good alarm system is both a deterrent and a means<br />

of alerting you, your neighbours or the police that your<br />

home has intruders. Alarms and detection have improved<br />

significantly in the past few years and it is well worth<br />

investing in a good system installed by a reputable company.<br />

4Fit or upgrade a CCTv system. Another method<br />

to both deter entry and alert you to the fact that<br />

there is an intruder in your house, modern systems are<br />

far superior to earlier versions. Now with very high<br />

resolution cameras and direct alerts to your mobile<br />

phone, you will be able to see who it is wherever you<br />

are in the world and raise the alarm accordingly.<br />

5Be vigilant! Just remember to always expect the<br />

unexpected. Always lock all windows and doors when<br />

you leave your home, be on the lookout for any suspicious<br />

behaviour, ensure your fences and boundaries are secure,<br />

particularly at the rear of your property. Hide all your<br />

valuables, including your car keys! And i f you are going away,<br />

don’t broadcast it for all to see on social media – be discreet!<br />

walk through the door of Anna Marie Smith’s sunny<br />

family home in leafy Horsell Common. From the subdued<br />

yet elegant colour palette, the use of natural materials<br />

and indoor planting, the blending of the exterior and<br />

interior, Anna Marie has created a home that instantly<br />

reminds one of the family’s former life in Australia.<br />

Adventurers at heart, Anna Marie and her husband<br />

Andy left the UK 11 years ago, along with their two small<br />

children. They followed their dream to move to Perth, a city<br />

they had fallen in love with when they were both travelling<br />

the world; Anna Marie as a back-packer and Andy as a<br />

professional cricketer. The couple built a life ‘down under’<br />

clawing their way onto the competitive property market<br />

through some savvy house refurbishments. The kids were in<br />

school and Andy had made a name for himself within the <br />

in the splash-back in the kitchen moves throughout<br />

the area, creating a wonderful sense of continuity<br />

world of International Hockey becoming High Performance<br />

Director of Hockey Australia’s National teams for men<br />

and women. Life was sweet. However, when Andy’s dad<br />

became ill, and following the sad passing of Anna Marie’s<br />

parents a few years earlier, the family made the difficult<br />

decision to return home to be closer to their families.<br />

Landing at Heathrow, Anna Marie was staying with her<br />

sister for a few days. Andy had stayed behind in Perth<br />

to see through the end of his contract. “The kids and<br />

I had just arrived in the UK, but I decided to pop into<br />

an estate agent,” says Anna Marie, “just to see what the<br />

market near my sister was like.” She laughs. “It was a bit<br />

crazy as within the week we’d had an offer accepted on<br />

this house. Andy was on his way to the Rio Olympics<br />

with the Australian hockey teams, so he just had to trust<br />

me. I knew good family homes in the Horsell Common<br />

area were a bit like hen’s teeth, especially ones backing<br />

onto the woods, so I went ahead and bought the place!”<br />

Sitting together in the family’s elegant sitting room on<br />

two elegant sofas from Sofa Sofa, enveloped by Anna <br />

unifying the landing and the four bedrooms that lead off it<br />

Marie’s innate sense of interior style, there would seem<br />

to be no reason why she wouldn’t have moved the family<br />

straight in. “Oh! What you see now was very different<br />

to when I first came to look at the place. There was no<br />

back extension, no sliding doors, a very small kitchen and<br />

dining area. All the doors seemed to open onto each other.<br />

It was very dark. But I knew immediately what to do,<br />

and luckily Andy and I had refurbished enough houses in<br />

Perth to trust each other’s judgment.” And so, the family<br />

moved in and Anna Marie began her next big project.<br />

“It’s funny,” she says, as we walk from the family<br />

sitting room at the front of the house into the sundrenched<br />

open plan kitchen and living space that she<br />

has created to the rear of the building. “I began this<br />

project in order to create a family home. But as soon as<br />

I decided to start posting my journey and the renovation<br />

of the house on Instagram, the house became an integral<br />

part of my new journey. I have since made so many<br />

new friends through the renovation and posting it on<br />

social media, it’s almost like it was all meant to be.”<br />

Anna Marie has taken a core Farrow & Ball palette;<br />

Strong White, Hardwicke White, Elephant’s Breath,<br />

Skimming Stone and ultra dark Hague Blu, and flipped<br />

them back and forward throughout the house. Rooms, <br />

Left: A family bathroom features a roll-top bath and Fired<br />

Earth encaustic floor tiles Below: In the master bedroom<br />

en suite, lengths of oak worktop have been used to support<br />

two basins, each with its own circular gold mirror above<br />

hallways and landings all converse with one another,<br />

allowing the house to open up and flow from one zone to<br />

the next. The sitting room, the entrance hall, the open plan<br />

kitchen, the downstairs loo, the utility and office space all<br />

make the most of the available space. Anna Marie has also<br />

used clever techniques she learnt developing properties back<br />

in Perth: stripping back the floorboards, using light coloured<br />

linens and airy fabrics, keeping pattern to a minimum and<br />

instead opting for texture across jute and cotton rugs and<br />

accessories. Throughout the house Anna Marie has featured<br />

both clear glass and woven light fittings, allowing light<br />

where possible. One of the most impressive features within<br />

the new extension is, of course, the large sliding glass doors<br />

by Maxlight that throw the south facing light of the garden<br />

straight back into the house, drenching the kitchen, dining<br />

and living area with a huge dose of sunshine and air.<br />

We are standing in Anna Marie’s kitchen, of which she<br />

is rightly very proud. As I am quickly discovering, she is<br />

the queen of secondhand! “I found this kitchen on eBay.<br />

It’s Mark Wilkinson, worth £100k. We had to drive to<br />

Maidenhead and take it apart to move it, I then had to<br />

reconfigure it to fit our house,” she says proudly. And<br />

she has every right to be as the effect is magnificent: a <br />

93 surrey-homes.co.uk

Above left: Anna Marie’s daughter’s room has been decorated using a warm, muted grey Above right: Anna Marie’s son chose a minimal<br />

monochrome scheme for his room<br />

beautifully crafted kitchen that has been re-painted and<br />

now looks as good as new. The quality of the cabinetry<br />

means that the kitchen now sits effortlessly within the<br />

living and dining area. Again texture and colour have been<br />

used to maximum effect. Tongue-and-groove panelling<br />

that begins in the splash-back in the kitchen moves<br />

throughout the dining area, creating a wonderful sense<br />

of continuity between the two areas. Anna Marie has<br />

also created a wall of reclaimed Victorian brick slips. “I<br />

wanted it to give warmth to the room but also to echo the<br />

rear wall of the house, as you look in from the garden.”<br />

Through the sliding doors, the patio offers up another<br />

shot of the family’s former Aussie life. The outdoor table<br />

and chairs, with the bleached wood and geometric <br />

This page: Anna Marie has mixed vintage and new pieces in the guest bedroom to create an inviting and cosy space. She<br />

found the Oriental screen behind the bed and bedside tables on Gumtree. The upholstered bed was from Arista Living<br />

upholstery, sits beside a wood lined outdoor kitchen with a<br />

Space Grill, a nifty barbecue gadget. You can easily imagine<br />

many a lively Smith family barbecue. The garden itself<br />

has been cleverly designed to make maximum use of the<br />

space. Anna Marie has screened off a side return, behind<br />

which sits her compact veggie patch, which she has packed<br />

with all the essentials: herbs, courgettes, strawberries and<br />

brassicas. A shed hides away all the garden practicalities <br />

97 surrey-homes.co.uk

This page: Dark blue and brass have been combined<br />

in the master bedroom with an upholstered velvet<br />

headboard and orb-like bedside lamps<br />

and as a sporty family, the garden also manages to play<br />

host to a large football goal and a full-size badminton net.<br />

Anna Marie has used a soft dark grey colour across the<br />

woodwork and fencing by mixing a couple of different<br />

Cuprinol paints – less harsh than black and more impactful<br />

than grey, the colour gives the garden a smart urban edge.<br />

Plants have been set into borders and also into metal<br />

and wicker containers. A hidden seating nook has been<br />

created to give Anna Marie (and her two companions,<br />

King Charles Spaniels Bella and Ruby) a small corner to<br />

while away what brief time her busy life might allow.<br />

Back in the house, we discover more of Anna Marie’s<br />

amazing secondhand finds: a dresser in the dining area<br />

that doubles up as a bar and serving area. The utility<br />

room cupboard has been entirely up-cycled, various<br />

bedside tables, the wonderful palm paintings on her<br />

upper landing, a Chinese screen that sits as a bed-head.<br />

Wherever you turn, Anna Marie’s skill in sourcing and<br />

re-purposing amazing finds is apparent. It is no doubt why<br />

her Instagram account has accrued over 18,000 followers.<br />

Upstairs Anna Marie’s interior design skills once again<br />

come to fore. The four bedrooms all have distinct looks<br />

and yet, once again, they have been subtly designed to <br />

work as a whole, each room flowing<br />

effortlessly into the next. Two large<br />

double rooms let Anna Marie loose<br />

again with the play between colour<br />

and texture. The main room is a joy of<br />

seaside blues, from the deep ocean blue<br />

to bright turquoise that works perfectly<br />

against the oak of the furniture, a gold<br />

cabinet and deep velvet headboard<br />

add a touch of glamour. The guest<br />

bedroom is so comfortable you envy<br />

Anna Marie’s friends and family who<br />

get to luxuriate in the large comfy<br />

bed and look out of the impressive<br />

bay window that again throws light<br />

and air into the space. Anna Marie’s<br />

kids’ rooms both show off her skill in<br />

transforming space to maximum effect.<br />

family back to the UK after many years spent on the<br />

Australian coast must have been hard. But with her<br />

inherent sense of style and space, she has created a<br />

wonderful home for her family. A place both cosy and<br />

they returned and adjusted to a new life in <strong>Surrey</strong>.<br />

to take a little inspiration from Van Gogh with deep dark blues and<br />

pinpricks of bright brassy tones. From £15,000 burbidgekitchenmakers.co.uk<br />

Handmade tale<br />

With the environment in mind, next year is set to<br />

craftsmen in woodcarving. £12 qasaqasa.co.uk<br />

“The main trends continue<br />

and brushed brass hardware<br />

John adds “We’ve invested in the latest<br />

Computer Aided Design programmes to<br />

provide our clients with an insight in to<br />

what their finished kitchen will look like.<br />

Our designers focus on layout, interiors<br />

and practical considerations, as well<br />

as materials and finishes. Our bespoke<br />

approach means that even awkward<br />

spaces can usually be worked around<br />

and we can also draw upon our years<br />

of experience to offer guidance on<br />

everything from worktops to appliances<br />

and storage solutions.”<br />

The children are back at school, the nights<br />

are drawing in and our thoughts are<br />

turning to the changing seasons and a<br />

new year ahead.<br />

Karen Cowell, Marketing Manager for<br />

kitchen designers and manufacturers, Rencraft,<br />

reveals the design trends worth<br />

watching in 2020...<br />

The team are delighted to have had their<br />

efforts recognised by others within the<br />

industry, with one of John’s designs being<br />

announced as a finalist in the prestigious<br />

2018 KBB Retail & Design Awards.<br />

“Design trends tend to be slowly evolving, they<br />

don’t suddenly appear overnight but gently gather<br />

pace. Some will fall by the wayside, while others<br />

will be warmly welcomed into the mainstream.”<br />

“Those trends that tend to have the most staying<br />

power are the ones that tap into the mood of the<br />

moment. As we end <strong>2019</strong> we find ourselves in an<br />

era of instability, both in terms of the economic<br />

climate and also an increasing awareness of the<br />

fragility of the environment we inhabit. How will<br />

this be reflected in our choices within the home?”<br />

“To have one of our designs recognised<br />

in this way is a great achievement,”<br />

says John “but nothing compares to the<br />

great feedback we get from our clients. I<br />

know people who have had our kitchens<br />

for upwards of 20 years, and they are<br />

still happy with them. That’s the real<br />

compliment, that’s the buzz, and that’s<br />

why we’ll never 81 Calverley compromise Road, on the quality<br />

of what we do.” Tel: 01892 520730<br />

“Rencraft believes homeowners will embrace the<br />

use of natural materials, in part out of a desire<br />

to reconnect with the natural world. We will<br />

see more exposed wood in our homes, more<br />

greenery, and more earthy toned colours such<br />

as sage green, dusky pinks, burnt orange and<br />

midnight blues paired with oak, birch, olive<br />

wood or even bamboo.”<br />

2020 <strong>Kitchen</strong> Design Trends<br />

“We believe that people will strive for simplicity<br />

too. As we become increasingly aware of our<br />

impact on the environment there will be a move<br />

towards minimalism rather than consumerism<br />

and this will be reflected in the way we style our<br />

homes. In the kitchen, storage will continue to<br />

be important, keeping clutter at bay, so that the<br />

surface of our lives appears clean and ordered<br />

(even if there are still a million and one items<br />

hidden behind closed doors!)”<br />

“This sense of getting back to nature and of<br />

returning to the source will express itself in a<br />

yearning towards retro or vintage inspired<br />

designs. Upcycling will continue to be on trend,<br />

allowing people to welcome lovingly restored<br />

vintage or antique furniture into their home. In the<br />

kitchen, retro fusion will see flat-fronted cabinetry,<br />

exposed edges and pieces of free standing<br />

furniture sat neatly alongside the latest appliances<br />

and smart home hubs (many of which themselves<br />

appear somewhat retro in design).”<br />

“After all, 2020 is also the dawn of a new<br />

decade. The future is upon us and these nostalgic<br />

and comforting reflections on the past will<br />

simultaneously be tempered by our desire to<br />

embrace certain technological advancements.<br />

Connectivity, modern appliances and our need<br />

for convenience to aid our increasingly flexible<br />

lifestyles will also be important factors.”<br />

“Baths in coloured finishes have grown in<br />

popularity recently as they’re a great way to inject<br />

perfect for creating a relaxing, natural ambience,<br />

especially when paired with wooden accessories.”<br />

“vibrancy through colour is beginning to play<br />

a big part in interior schemes. It’s exciting to see<br />

Luscious Lips (Lip FiLLer)<br />

With age, the lips naturally become thinner<br />

and lose their definition, and the v-shaped<br />

area of the upper lip, known as Cupid’s<br />

bow, is where you’re most likely to see this<br />

happen.<br />

Many people try to disguise the effects<br />

of ageing in this area with make-up, but<br />

it can bleed down the vertical wrinkles<br />

and highlight the problem. If you’ve been<br />

wondering how to look younger, lip fillers<br />

are an easy answer because they’re quick,<br />

affordable and non-invasive.<br />

They can be the centrepiece of a makeover<br />

that gives you youthful looking, plump lips<br />

and a more defined smile. Because the lips<br />

are sensitive, we apply local anaesthetic<br />

cream about an hour before the procedure<br />

to numb them. Dermal filler is injected,<br />

usually into the upper rim of the lip to<br />

define the Cupid’s bow, and immediately<br />

afterwards you may experience small<br />

pinpricks for a few hours.<br />

There is often some mild redness of the<br />

skin, but this settles by the next day and<br />

designed for smooth integration into the delicate lip tissue and to imp<br />

the lip body and definition of the lip border. The effects typically last<br />

Health & Beauty<br />

Long lasting<br />

lipstick<br />

Jo Fairley compiles her list of the juiciest, lip<br />

plumping colours with staying power<br />

The No.1 make-up question that I get asked,<br />

wearing my beauty editor’s hat, is quite<br />

simply: ‘How can I find a long-lasting<br />

lipstick that really works?’ Most recently, this<br />

question was posed by an elegant Seventy-something<br />

who shares my Pilates teacher – proving not only<br />

that you need never give up on glamour, but that<br />

you can spend several decades trying to find a lippie<br />

that lasts. It’s lipstick’s equivalent of the Holy Grail.<br />

The good news is that there have been many<br />

advances in long-lasting lipstick technology over<br />

recent years. Used to be that the only solution<br />

was painting on a layer of a product<br />

called LipCote, £3.69 – a lipstick<br />

‘sealant’ which one of my close friends<br />

still swears by (and nary so much<br />

as a scarlet lip-print smudges her<br />

teacups). To me, though, this feels<br />

quite unbearably tight on my lips –<br />

like they’ve suddenly shrunk in the<br />

wash and are two sizes too small.<br />

But let me start by saying that<br />

whatever lipstick you use, there are<br />

tips for making it stay put for longer. It’s down to<br />

prep – and understanding that there’s a trade-off<br />

between gloss and endurance. You can have shine<br />

OR staying power, but not both. (I know some lip<br />

glosses promote themselves as ‘long-lasting’, but<br />

I’ve never found one that delivers on its promises.)<br />

Bobbi Brown recommends: “Apply a good lip<br />

balm and let it absorb thoroughly before applying<br />

“It’s down to<br />

prep – and<br />

understanding<br />

that there’s<br />

a trade-off<br />

between gloss<br />

and endurance”<br />

lipstick. If your lips are coated with waxy lip<br />

balm, your lipstick won’t perform well. Build<br />

up a depth of colour by applying lipstick, then<br />

blotting it with a tissue to leave a stain on your<br />

lips. Repeating these steps before applying a final<br />

coat should give you a deeper, longer-lasting<br />

result.” (You could try applying with a lipbrush,<br />

too, although be aware that this creates quite a<br />

defined line and not every woman wants that<br />

1940s Hollywood movie-star perfection in <strong>2019</strong>.)<br />

Another alternative is not just to outline the lips<br />

with a pencil that matches your lips, but actually<br />

to ‘fill in’ (a little like painting<br />

by numbers!) the lips, with your<br />

pencil. This creates a matte base to<br />

which lipstick clings more happily.<br />

Going somewhat to extremes, some<br />

make-up artists create a ‘canvas’ for<br />

lipstick by applying foundation all<br />

over the lips. The next step is to take<br />

whatever translucent powder you<br />

ordinarily use to set your foundation;<br />

using a small brush, pick up a small<br />

amount of the powder and brush it onto your lips.<br />

(Although, frankly, I find that all just too much<br />

of a faff for the average day at the coalface.)<br />

Product-wise though, as I say, huge advances<br />

have been made in long-lasting lipstick technology.<br />

The following have all hugely impressed me – more<br />

than that, they’ve made their way into my own<br />

kit, since I can’t really be bothered to touch<br />

<br />

up my lipstick more than once a day, frankly.<br />

Any of these should put a smile on the lips of<br />

someone seeking a ‘Duracell bunny’ of a lipstick.<br />

(And beyond that, the smile should stay put.)<br />

Burberry Full Kisses, £24. Slightly mixed<br />

metaphors here, but to my mind Burberry can’t<br />

put a foot wrong with their lip offering. There’s<br />

something about the bevelled tip of this Burberry<br />

Full Kisses design that makes wonderfully precise<br />

application of the full-coverage-yet-comfy<br />

formulation, which comes in a slimline and<br />

longer-than-usual stick. Initially, I didn’t quite buy<br />

Burberry’s promise that you don’t need a mirror<br />

to apply it – but funnily enough, even with a deep<br />

grape shade like Dewberry No.549, it’s absolutely<br />

true. (Something to do with that slant-y design.)<br />

It doesn’t suck the life out of your lips – in fact, it’s<br />

pleasantly moisturising, while offering a very longlasting<br />

tint. (The satin coverage does fade, but lips<br />

still have colour several hours after application.)<br />

Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Crayon, £9.99.<br />

This lives up to its name but (again) doesn’t feel<br />

hideously tight, as so many matte products do. It’s<br />

in a Crayola-type format, which swivels up. (If you<br />

want to keep the nib sharp, there’s a little sharpener<br />

in the end.) There’s also a Superstay Matte Ink Liquid<br />

Lipstick, £9.99, in the same range – a liquid, which<br />

you apply with the wand applicator, as opposed to a<br />

crayon texture, if that’s more your (make-up) bag.<br />

3INA The Longwear Lipstick, £10.94. Like the<br />

Chanel option, this has a doe-foot applicator<br />

and all the convenience of a gloss, but with the<br />

intensity of a really super-charged, pigmented<br />

lipstick. It becomes opaque on lips – but if<br />

it’s too intense when applied ‘neat’, add a<br />

dab and blend it for a long-lasting stain.<br />

Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint, £19. When<br />

Rihanna launched her make-up line, there were<br />

queues round the block for weeks at Harvey Nichols<br />

in Knightsbridge – and really, I’m not surprised,<br />

surrey-homes.co.uk<br />

118<br />

with products like this. In packaging that looks<br />

like The Shard, it’s featherlight, and said to offer<br />

12-hour hold. This high impact lipstick comes in<br />

a relatively small range of shades, right now – the<br />

most wearable are probably Uncuffed (a rosy-toned<br />

nude) and the fabulous scarlet Uncensored.<br />

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink, £31. I think this is my<br />

favourite of the bunch – but treat-priced. Almost<br />

weightless, it glides on via the doe-foot applicator<br />

to deliver really, really strong colour. (It’s not called<br />

‘Ink’ for nothing.) The mix of waxes, polymers and<br />

vegetable oils is surprisingly comfy tho’ – unlike<br />

so many long-last formulations I’ve tried. There<br />

are lighter shades in the range – fresh pink 168<br />

Serenity or rose-beige 140 Amoreux – but I love<br />

the brazenly dark options, such as 154 Experimenté<br />

and 152 Choquant, a deep red. I apply to my<br />

bottom lip, smoosh my lips together – et voilà.<br />

And sometimes I pat the colour into lips for soft,<br />

blurred edges that look really natural and ‘bitten’.<br />

You can then use this as a base for another lipstick<br />

over the top – and when that’s worn off, you’ll<br />

still have great colour underneath, but on its own,<br />

the colour stays for hours and hours. Through a<br />

morning smoothie. Through a mid-morning coffee.<br />

To be honest, I only feel compelled to ‘top it up’<br />

after a vinaigrette-drenched salad lunch. (There’s<br />

nothing short of an actual tattoo – which you won’t<br />

catch me recommending – that’ll survive that!)<br />

Mwah, mwah… And you’re welcome!<br />

Lipstick, £10.94<br />


<strong>October</strong> is Breast Cancer<br />

Awareness Month.<br />

Your questions answered by the Nuffield Health Guildford Hospital.<br />

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that is made up of a group of cancer cells found in the<br />

milk ducts that can grow into surrounding tissue and may spread to other areas of the body.<br />

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer, affecting over 55,000 UK women each year.<br />

But not everything you hear about breast cancer is true, here we answer some common breast<br />

cancer myths.<br />

Most breast lumps are cancerous.<br />

A lump isn’t necessarily a sign of breast cancer.<br />

Roughly 80% of lumps in women’s breasts are<br />

caused by non-cancerous changes, cysts or other<br />

conditions. If you do find a lump, don’t panic but<br />

do get it checked just to be sure.<br />

If you’re at risk for breast cancer, there’s<br />

little you can do but watch for the signs.<br />

There’s a lot that women can do to lower their risk.<br />

Including losing weight if they’re obese, exercising<br />

regularly, lowering alcohol consumption, examining<br />

their breasts regularly and quitting smoking.<br />

Breast cancer always comes in the form<br />

of a lump.<br />

Many women examining their breasts wrongly<br />

believe they should just be looking for lumps. Other<br />

changes to look out for include breast skin (swelling,<br />

skin irritation or dimpling), shape and size changes,<br />

breast or nipple pain, nipple inversion, redness,<br />

scaliness, thickening of nipple or breast skin and<br />

a discharge other than breast milk. These signs<br />

could indicate cancer but are more likely to be<br />

non-cancerous conditions.<br />

Mammograms expose you to so much<br />

radiation they increase your risk.<br />

Radiation is used in mammography, however the<br />

amount is so small any associated risks are tiny<br />

in comparison to the huge preventative benefits<br />

gained from the test. Mammograms can detect<br />

lumps well before they can be felt or noticed.<br />

The earlier the lumps are caught, the better the<br />

chance of a positive outcome.<br />

Cancer Care at the Nuffield Health<br />

Guildford Hospital.<br />

We have an experienced team of consultants,<br />

surgeons, oncologists and nurses providing high<br />

quality and personalised care. If you need further<br />

investigation e.g. mammograms, to minimise<br />

your anxiety we aim to get results back to you<br />

as quickly as possible. We know cancer can be a<br />

frightening illness, so our team is here to support<br />

you through your diagnosis and treatment. We<br />

offer a wide variety of care and procedures for<br />

many types of cancer if you need surgery. Our<br />

separate oncology suite also provides a safe space<br />

for those having chemotherapy. We work closely<br />

with MacMillan Cancer Support and have been<br />

awarded the Macmillan Quality Environment<br />

Mark (MQEM). MQEM recognises we provide<br />

a welcoming, comfortable<br />

environment for those with<br />

cancer. It also acknowledges<br />

we respect visitors’ privacy,<br />

treat patients with dignity<br />

and that our facilities help<br />

improve wellbeing.<br />

Boost Your Immunity<br />

Henrietta Norton explains how changing attitudes to<br />

fermentation are having a beneficial effect on gut bacteria<br />

F<br />

ermenting is firmly back in<br />

fashion these days. Not during<br />

my 15 years as a Nutritional<br />

Therapist has the advice of fermenting<br />

a cabbage been so positively received.<br />

The tradition of fermenting vegetables<br />

was born out of a necessity to ‘preserve’<br />

vegetables long before fridges and freezers<br />

were invented. The most recognised of these<br />

is the European cabbage based sauerkraut<br />

or the Asian version, kimchi,<br />

where cabbage is shredded and<br />

pickled using a process called<br />

lactic acid fermentation.<br />

This process yields a number<br />

of benefits, including lactic<br />

acid bacteria Lactobacillus<br />

Brevis or Lactobacillus Plantarum that<br />

have a functional role in digestion as well<br />

as the production of B vitamins, vitamin<br />

K and the ‘breakdown’ of protein.<br />

Indeed, Europeans have been traditionally<br />

using these foods for anything from<br />

maintaining a healthy digestion to<br />

promoting immunity and treatment for<br />

ulcers. The cabbage or vegetable itself<br />

provides a host of nutrients that are<br />

“ The trick is to<br />

use it in small<br />

amounts on a<br />

regular basis”<br />

preserved by the fermentation process and<br />

prebiotic fibre to feed the good bacteria.<br />

There are simply ways to incorporate<br />

fermented foods into your life; add a spoonful<br />

of saukerkraut to a winter hot-pot, baked fish,<br />

or as an alternative to commercial pickles in<br />

sandwiches or baked potatoes. The trick is<br />

to use it in small amounts (a dessertspoon<br />

would be fine) on a regular basis – too<br />

much can make you gassy and bloated!<br />

The homemade, traditional<br />

version does not use heat and<br />

is naturally unpasteurised. As a<br />

result it produces a wonderful<br />

diversity of beneficial bacteria.<br />

Commercial varieties in cans<br />

or jars are produced differently<br />

to extend shelf life and may offer a lower<br />

yield of bacterial diversity and strength.<br />

So my advice is to ‘make hay while the<br />

sun shines’ and make your own. Get creative<br />

with various vegetables and spices (carrots,<br />

beetroot, ginger and caraway are delicious).<br />

Once combined they can be stored for up<br />

to three months in the fridge, so you can<br />

make larger batches and stockpile, adding<br />

them into your diet as often as you fancy.<br />

Sauerkraut<br />

• 1 medium cabbage, finely<br />

shredded (any type of<br />

cabbage and even better if<br />

mixed, but still the equivalent<br />

amount to one cabbage)<br />

• 1 tbsp caraway seeds<br />

• 1 tbsp sea salt<br />

• 1 sterilized 500ml Mason<br />

jar (or other jar with a lid)<br />

Mix all the ingredients<br />

together in a bowl.<br />

Transfer to the sterilised<br />

container, adding some<br />

pressure so that the cabbage<br />

is tightly packed. This should<br />

leave at least 1 inch between<br />

the top of the cabbage and<br />

the lid of the jar as the<br />

mixture can ‘grow’ during<br />

the fermentation process.<br />

Put the lid on tightly and<br />

store in a dark cupboard<br />

at room temperature for<br />

three days. After that<br />

transfer to the fridge.<br />

Saukerkraut improves with<br />

age so you can leave it in your<br />

fridge for at least one month.<br />

Add a dessertspoon to salads<br />

or use as a snack with cheese<br />

and oat and flax cakes.<br />

Being healthy isn’t just focusing on exercise<br />

or diet, it’s about lifestyle and mindset,<br />

too, as Sarah Maxwell explains<br />

minute fitness<br />

Prior to a summer break, many<br />

of us think about sprucing<br />

up in readiness for the beach,<br />

family fun, great food and rosé tinged<br />

evenings. Aside from removing the<br />

winter fuzz many of us want to feel<br />

more toned, slimmer and confident<br />

in the warmer months. But now,<br />

with the summer behind us and the<br />

long dark nights arriving, lightweight<br />

linen dresses and glittery flip-flops<br />

are just a distant memory!<br />

In June this year I launched a sevenday<br />

fitness course on a Facebook closed<br />

group showing people how exercising<br />

for 10 minutes a day can be really<br />

effective. Most of us struggle with the<br />

demands of life and more often than<br />

not our own wellbeing is at the bottom<br />

of the list of things to consider.<br />

For me consistency is important. By<br />

just doing a bit of exercise<br />

every day you can work<br />

up to more. Try just 10<br />

minutes and see how you<br />

feel. If that feels good,<br />

then by all means do<br />

more. If 20 minutes feels<br />

good and you can do it<br />

regularly that’s great. If<br />

you think you should<br />

go out for a run but are feeling both<br />

physically and emotionally exhausted,<br />

then don’t push yourself – go for a walk<br />

instead, breathe deeply and take in your<br />

surroundings. By keeping on the move,<br />

even if it’s just for 10 minutes, your<br />

physical and emotional state can change.<br />

Believe me, this is so much better for<br />

you than punishing yourself. Feeling the<br />

pain is not necessarily a gain! The idea<br />

that you don’t deserve a fit body unless<br />

you punish yourself is completely wrong.<br />

I don’t always feel like working out,<br />

sometimes I’m overwhelmed by juggling<br />

family, friends and all of the things that<br />

we feel we have to do before we even<br />

“Finding time to<br />

fit in things that<br />

support my health<br />

and wellbeing<br />

is difficult for<br />

me, too”<br />

start to think about our own needs.<br />

Finding time to fit in things that<br />

support my health and wellbeing is<br />

difficult for me, too. I’ve been a fitness<br />

trainer for 30 years, I have nothing<br />

to prove to myself or anyone else. I<br />

don’t want to have a six-pack at 50,<br />

I just want to make sure that I am<br />

mentally and physically fit so I can<br />

enjoy my life to its full capacity.<br />

My philosophy is, be kind to yourself<br />

mentally and physically. Do what<br />

you can, when you can and always do<br />

something that makes you smile. Dance<br />

in your kitchen in your underwear to<br />

your favourite music if that’s your thing.<br />

Think about your whole self. If you can<br />

change your mindset so that you view<br />

exercise and wellbeing as an essential<br />

part of your life and not a punishment,<br />

you will find it becomes a pleasure.<br />

If you have children,<br />

then just think of the<br />

positive body image<br />

you are giving them by<br />

loving your own self<br />

and showing them that<br />

health and fitness is<br />

about your mind and<br />

body for your whole<br />

life not just for two<br />

paranoid weeks while wearing a bikini.<br />

I believe that ‘healthy’ is an entire<br />

lifestyle, not just exercise or diet. It<br />

all has to work together and it has to<br />

work with your schedule and ability.<br />

Success looks different for everyone<br />

and I know we all find it hard to<br />

remember this when we have social<br />

media, TV or celebrities telling us<br />

what to do and how we should live.<br />

We are all shapes and sizes. We owe<br />

it to ourselves and our young ones<br />

not to conform to idealised images<br />

of health and fitness because, more<br />

often than not, they are either fake or<br />

totally untrue and unobtainable.<br />

Almond Dutch Baby with Blackberry Compote<br />

Preparation time: 10 mins<br />

Cooking time: 25-30 mins Serves 4<br />

You’ll need a 25cm<br />

ovenproof skillet pan<br />

For the Dutch baby:<br />

• 100g plain flour,<br />

sifted<br />

• 1 tbsp caster sugar<br />

• 3 large eggs<br />

• 150ml full-fat milk<br />

• ½ tsp almond<br />

extract<br />

• 3 tbsp vegetable oil<br />

For the compote:<br />

• 200g blackberries<br />

• 25g sugar<br />

• ¾ tsp cornflour<br />

• 1 tbsp Chambord<br />

or crème de cassis<br />

(optional)<br />

• 1 tbsp water<br />

To serve:<br />

• Icing sugar<br />

• Toasted almond<br />

flakes<br />

• Vanilla ice cream<br />

1Remove the top shelf and preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7.<br />

Tip the flour and sugar into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre.<br />

Crack in the eggs and add the milk and almond extract.<br />

2Whisk together the eggs, milk and extract then gradually incorporate the flour.<br />

Keep whisking until you have a smooth batter. Pour into a jug and set aside.<br />

3Add the oil to the skillet pan and place in the oven to heat up. Meanwhile,<br />

make the compote: add the blackberries, sugar, cornflour, liqueur (if using)<br />

and water to a saucepan.<br />

4Place the pan over a medium heat and cook for 4-5 mins until the released<br />

juices begin to thicken. Set aside.<br />

5Once the skillet is hot, pull out the oven shelf and pour the batter into the<br />

pan. (It should sizzle once it hits the hot oil.)<br />

6Quickly close the oven door and leave to bake for 20-25 mins until puffed up<br />

and golden brown. (Don’t be tempted to open the door too early otherwise it<br />

will sink very quickly.)<br />

7Dust with icing sugar, scatter with almond flakes and take straight to the<br />

table. Serve with the compote and scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Garden<br />

Time for<br />

Change<br />

Jo Arnell explains how you can keep your<br />

garden looking gorgeous throughout autumn<br />

and winter despite fluctuating light levels<br />

Light levels are changing dramatically this<br />

month as the earth tilts relentlessly away<br />

from the sun. There is nothing we can do<br />

about it and we do seem to make it harder on<br />

ourselves by changing the hour at the end of the<br />

month. Suddenly it is dark and getting darker.<br />

Nature doesn’t ‘rail against the dying of the light’<br />

in the way we do. The plants and animals have just<br />

been getting on with it; ripening wood and fruit,<br />

making winter stores, preparing for the inevitable.<br />

Somewhere there is a comfort in this, a regularity<br />

and a rhythm. Without winter there is no spring.<br />

Seasonally Affected<br />

Autumn is a beautifully poetic season and when<br />

the sun does shine it is at a lower angle in the<br />

sky, so the light is softer and more golden,<br />

enhancing tawny colours and causing backlit<br />

translucent leaves and petals to glow. Sunlight<br />

slants through grasses and the less dense plants,<br />

gilding the edges and creating silhouettes.<br />

We can make the most of these effects with<br />

autumnal planting schemes, choosing plants that<br />

are at their best this season, or those that die<br />

gracefully to leave attractive seed heads and skeletal<br />

surrey-homes.co.uk<br />


Garden<br />

stems – looking like the ghosts of their former selves.<br />

Grasses come into their own in the autumn and winter.<br />

Gilded by low light, most will continue to look lovely, easily<br />

surviving the worst of the weather, bending and bowing in<br />

the wind, but seldom wrecked or uprooted as other plants<br />

might be. Calamagrostis ‘Carl Foerster’ stands tall like a golden<br />

sentinel all through the winter, Miscanthus keep their feathery<br />

plumes intact for many weeks, while low-growing Stipa<br />

tenuissima will waft gently about at the front of the border.<br />

Lower light levels can also mean that some areas of<br />

the garden are in shade for more, or even all, of the day.<br />

Shadows are longer, the days are shorter and gloomy<br />

corners can feel like they are pressing in on us. There<br />

are some cheery plants that thrive in shade, that will<br />

lift a dull, dark area and bring interest to the darkest<br />

of spaces. Variegated leaves or pale flowers will work<br />

best, providing they can cope with the lack of light.<br />

Light and colour<br />

Playing with light effects is an interesting, rewarding and<br />

ultimately uplifting process. Manipulation of light can<br />

also be used effectively in planting choices to enhance the<br />

natural effects, or even to counteract them. Colours change<br />

dramatically in the light. Pastels and shades<br />

of blue sing out in low light. These colours<br />

also increase the feeling of space and light,<br />

because pale shades recede, so that objects<br />

seem further away. Conversely, stronger,<br />

brighter colours advance and seem closer and<br />

more intimate. Deep colours stand out well<br />

in sunny conditions where lighter colours<br />

would appear washed-out and insipid.<br />

The changing quality of light through the day also affects<br />

how colours look to us. Paler hues – white, pale cream,<br />

mauve and blue – shine out at dawn and dusk, whereas<br />

brighter colours and those at the red end of the spectrum<br />

“Nature doesn’t<br />

‘rail against the<br />

dying of the<br />

light’ in the<br />

way we do”<br />

– pinks, red and oranges – almost disappear in low light<br />

and are at their clearest and strongest in the midday sun.<br />

How plants respond to light<br />

Plants are able to make food and grow using sunlight,<br />

water and carbon dioxide through the process of<br />

photosynthesis, but they have also developed<br />

sophisticated responses to changes in both<br />

light levels and the direction of the light.<br />

Phototropism – or a plant’s ability to move<br />

towards the light – is governed by the triggering<br />

of hormones within the stems and leaves.<br />

These lengthen the cells within the plant<br />

that are furthest away from the sunlight, so if<br />

light hits just on one side of the stem, it will<br />

bend towards it and start loading the cells with chloroplasts<br />

(where photosynthesis occurs). This is why tiny seedlings<br />

that don’t get enough light become etiolated, growing<br />

pale, thin and tall in their search for light. Heliotropism<br />

is a form of phototropism shown by young sunflowers that<br />

causes them to turn their (unopened) buds towards the sun,<br />

tracking it as it appears to move across the sky through the day.<br />

Photoperiodism – is the reaction that plants have to changing<br />

day length, triggering them to grow, flower and set seed. It<br />

is closely linked to the changing seasons and vital for plants’<br />

survival. Some plants are more sensitive than others; those<br />

not affected by day length are governed more by changes in<br />

temperature, often they react to both, but the further from<br />

the equator they grow, the more likely it is that growth and<br />

flowering is directly related to changing amounts of light – or<br />

rather the amount of darkness. Some plants are labelled ‘long<br />

day’ or ‘short day’, depending on how long their nights are.<br />

Plant breeders use this to their advantage, triggering flowers to<br />

bloom at the wrong time of year – this is why your Christmas<br />

red Poinsettia stays green forever after, as it needs a period<br />

of darkness to trigger the red bracts to form for next year.<br />

Adaptations to light and shade<br />

You can tell a lot about a plant and where it will be happy<br />

growing from the shape, size and texture of its leaves. Plants that<br />

thrive in hot, sunny situations often have silver leaves to reflect<br />

the sunlight, whereas those that prefer shadier conditions <br />

tend to have dark green leaves, as they need to pack them with<br />

chlorophyll in order to make the most of any available light. Along<br />

with light, or the lack of it, comes the availability of water. Plants<br />

from arid situations have evolved methods of conserving water. Leaves<br />

reduce into needles in order to reduce the transpiration rate, or as in<br />

the case of succulents, they plump up to become water storage units.<br />

In damp shade, the quest is to get rid of water, so leaves tend to be<br />

bigger to encourage water to evaporate from a larger surface area.<br />

Woodland plants have evolved to fit in with the seasons, seizing<br />

literal ‘windows’ of opportunity before leaves appear on the trees.<br />

They flower in a rush in spring and then most disappear, or become<br />

dormant once the dense, light-blocking canopy of leaves closes in.<br />

Opportunists, such as snowdrops and winter aconites, even start<br />

flowering in the winter to get ahead of the game.<br />

Autumn planting<br />

Early autumn is the time to be tidying up, preparing and planting<br />

up new borders. The soil is still warm, it’s likely to rain (and save you<br />

from endless watering) and new plants will get a chance to settle in<br />

before too many demands are made on them. Working outside helps<br />

us to make the most of the available daylight too. It is mood lifting –<br />

not due just to the benefits of outdoor exercise, but to being close to<br />

the soil, the plants, creatures and the ever changing face of nature.<br />

Plants for shade<br />

Skimmia japonica ‘Kew Green’ – glossy,<br />

leathery leaves and long-lasting pale<br />

green buds that form in the winter<br />

and open in spring. It is scented.<br />

Euonymous fortunii ‘Silver Queen’,<br />

‘Emerald Gaiety’ – slow growing evergreen<br />

shrubs with pretty variegated leaves that will<br />

light up a gloomy corner in the garden.<br />

Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ – leaves are etched with<br />

white veining and it has dainty, forget-menot-style<br />

flowers in spring. A pretty plant.<br />

Tiarella ‘Spring symphony’ – another dainty<br />

plant with leaves that look a little like a<br />

heuchera and tiny flower spires in shades of<br />

white and pink.<br />

Hellebores – tough evergreen leaves, adapted<br />

for dry, shady conditions. They flower<br />

early to make the most of available light.<br />

Epimediums – great ground cover<br />

plants for shady situations, especially<br />

spreading out under trees, where<br />

nothing much else will grow.<br />

Plants for sun<br />

Sedum spectabile ‘Autumn Joy’ –<br />

succulent-type leaves. Its flowers are packed<br />

full of nectar to attract butterflies and bees.<br />

Phlomis russelliana – grey sage type<br />

leaves with whorls of pale yellow flowers<br />

that fade into stiff silhouettes in autumn<br />

and winter. It clumps up quite quickly,<br />

so will need space to romp…<br />

Iris (bearded) – good strappy leaves, likes<br />

to bake in the sun in order to flower well.<br />

Stachys – soft felty leaves like ‘lamb’s ears’<br />

and spires of woolly, pale pink/mauve flowers.<br />

Cistus (Rock Rose) – evergreen flowering<br />

in June/July with saucer shaped flowers<br />

in shades of red, pink and white.<br />

Garden<br />

Sweet Dreams<br />

Sue Whigham goes in search of the lesser-seen members of the Lepidoptera order of moths<br />

I<br />

know that many of us, no, all of us, when we think<br />

of moths, have dark thoughts about clothes moths,<br />

or at least their larvae, munching through our<br />

favourite clothes. I know. I had to replace my bedroom<br />

carpet in its entirety a few years ago, as well as a couple<br />

of pretty sweaters. Mind you, we do create the perfect<br />

environment for them in our warm, centrally heated<br />

houses. I bet there were fewer around when we didn’t have<br />

radiators and the ice was on the <strong>inside</strong> of the windows.<br />

But the moths I’m thinking of are gorgeous creatures,<br />

such as the Jersey Tiger moth my granddaughter spotted<br />

sunning itself on a bit of Brixton graffiti a couple of summers<br />

ago. Wow, what a beautiful creature this daytime flier is.<br />

It’s interesting to hear that it used to be found just on the<br />

south coast, and more specifically in Devon and Hampshire.<br />

Now it is happy in London as we discovered. It seems that<br />

last year was a bumper year for them – well, in Hackney at<br />

least. It’s quite a large, very distinctive creature (52-65mm)<br />

with creamy white stripes on its forewings and red/orange<br />

or yellow underwings with black spots. You can’t miss it.<br />

And so what would you grow in your garden to<br />

<br />

encourage this moth. Their hairy caterpillars feed off nettles,<br />

dandelions, plantain, ground ivy and bramble. All plants that<br />

the ‘tidy’ gardener might be strimming off as we speak. The<br />

adult moth can be seen feeding off buddleias and borage in<br />

the late summer months, as well as plants like Eupatorium<br />

cannabinum, or hemp agrimony, an excellent late season<br />

border plant with its clusters of pink flowers. There are<br />

lovely, particularly decorative forms of this eupatorium,<br />

including statuesque Eupatorium maculatum Atropurpureum<br />

which has the darkest of flowers and purplish stems.<br />

Moths are in the same insect order (Lepidoptera) as<br />

butterflies and in fact make up 96 per cent of the<br />

group. There are approximately 2,500 species of moth in<br />

the UK and many of them have very specific caterpillar food<br />

plants. European native plants species like hawthorn are great<br />

attractants for moths and it’s always with a sinking feeling that<br />

I see new builds being planted up with fast growing species,<br />

such as laurel, rather than a good old native hedge. And like<br />

other pollinators, moths do a valuable job of pollinating both<br />

wild flowers, garden flowers and crops, as well as providing a<br />

vital food source for bats. Many moth pollinated plants have<br />

blooms which have evolved specifically to provide nectar<br />

in return for which the moths cross pollinate the flowers.<br />

Most ‘moth flowers’ tend to be either white or at least pale<br />

in colour so that the moths can spot them as dusk approaches.<br />

These would include highly scented flowers such as evening<br />

primrose (Oenothera) and tobacco plants (Nicotiana). Some<br />

of them have flowers with long tubes which exclude insects<br />

with shorter tongues! Wild honeysuckle, for instance, has<br />

a particularly long tube which excludes smaller insects and<br />

is tailor made for larger moths. Silenes or campions are<br />

particularly attractive to moths. Night scented catchfly, Silene<br />

noctiflora, has pale pink flowers and is worth looking out for<br />

if you want to encourage moths to your garden or meadow.<br />

They are a late summer flowerer and look good in a border<br />

but would be growing more naturally with knapweeds,<br />

field scabious, meadow cranesbill and musk mallow.<br />

us with, and helped sow, some yellow rattle, otherwise <br />

known as the ‘meadow maker’ for its ability to parasitize<br />

the grasses and weaken their growth, several native<br />

species have miraculously appeared this year, amongst<br />

them scabious, betony and musk mallow. The latter’s<br />

musky scent is particularly attractive to night flying<br />

insects and its open pink flowers are very recognisable<br />

flowering as they do on wasteland and field edges.<br />

We had a local moth expert along in July, the best month<br />

for moths by the way, and he set up a moth trap in the middle<br />

of the lawn. We went out at about 10.30pm just to see that<br />

it was still there! However, the connection to the electricity<br />

must have come loose as there was no sign of light and so the<br />

next half an hour was spent out in the dark trying out old<br />

leads dug out from the garage. Note to self: clear garage out.<br />

But it was worth it as when Bernard came back at 6.30am the<br />

following morning, he opened up the trap and we studiously<br />

inspected his night time tally despite being a little bleary<br />

eyed. We had 51 species in there, apparently not that high a<br />

count but it was our first go. It was so exciting to learn a little<br />

about these fascinating and usually pretty invisible creatures<br />

and to be able to inspect them so closely. And their names:<br />

Thistle Ermine, Beautiful Plume, Drinker, Red Twin Spot<br />

Carpet, Pebble Prominent, Nut-tree Tussock and so on.<br />

Three stand out moths for their drama as well as<br />

their delicacy were the Buff-tip, which looks exactly<br />

like a short piece of birch twig, a perfectly developed<br />

defence mechanism to deflect predators; the Elephant<br />

Hawkmoth, a large and lovely pink and olive moth<br />

whose caterpillar resembles an elephant’s trunk, and<br />

the Poplar Hawkmoth. We had two of these.<br />

The Poplar Hawkmoth is apparently the most common<br />

of the hawkmoths in the UK and its appearance is<br />

certainly arresting as it has wingspan of up to 10cm<br />

and when it is resting it holds its hindwings above<br />

its forewings making for an interesting shape.<br />

Education<br />

Forward Thinking<br />

Simon Wong, Chartered Financial Planner at JM Finn, explains<br />

how to plan for your child’s private school education<br />

Are there any ways to cut the cost of a private school<br />

education? Any aspiring parent wishing to send their<br />

children to private school will be fully aware of the huge<br />

cost to do so, with the average annual cost of a private day<br />

school at around £14,000 rising to £34,000 for boarding<br />

(Independent Schools Council). There are limited ways to<br />

actually reduce the cost but it is always worth exploring with<br />

the school if there are any relevant bursaries or scholarships<br />

available, which can range from 5-50% discounts depending<br />

on the school, so it can be worth nurturing that musical or<br />

sporting talent. Secondly, many schools offer a discount for<br />

paying all the fees up front. This only works if you have the<br />

capital available but sometimes the discount is not attractive<br />

enough to make it worthwhile and you may be better off<br />

investing the money elsewhere. Alternatively, retrain as a<br />

teacher and seek employment at a private school. The only<br />

way to really reduce the cost of educating your children is<br />

to plan for it and to ensure you<br />

are as tax efficient as possible.<br />

How far in advance should you be<br />

planning financially for your child’s educational needs?<br />

As ever, the sooner you start planning the better. I would<br />

always recommend a young couple to start saving for<br />

school fees if they are planning to have children, as the<br />

sooner you start saving the more benefit you achieve from<br />

compounding your returns. I also regularly have conversations<br />

with grandparents regarding their estate planning and<br />

more often than not, there is a desire to help with private<br />

school fee funding. This can be an extremely tax efficient<br />

way to cover the costs either by making a gift or setting<br />

up a trust, most likely a Bare Trust. These options can, if<br />

correctly structured, reduce the inheritance tax burden, but<br />

all require forward planning and above all, expert advice. <br />

Education<br />

“Setting up a bare trust is the most tax efficient method for grandparents to pay<br />

the fees. The pros for this are that it is potentially inheritance tax free, can be<br />

relatively straightforward to set up and makes use of the child’s tax allowances”<br />

Are there any risks of school fee planning? Depending<br />

on the route chosen, whether it’s to invest your capital in<br />

a growth strategy or to focus on reducing a tax burden to<br />

increase a future inheritance, there are always risks. Investing<br />

puts your assets at the risk of stock market movements and<br />

it must always be remembered that past performance is<br />

no guide to future performance and as such it is possible<br />

you could end up with less than you started off with. Tax<br />

efficient strategies are at the mercy of HMRC as tax rules<br />

can – and do – change, often without notice. In the current<br />

political environment prudence in this regard is essential.<br />

Another risk is that school fee payments are interrupted<br />

due to the death of the primary provider. This can be<br />

mitigated by insuring the appropriate person(s). The key is<br />

ensuring you take appropriate advice from a wealth planner<br />

or tax expert who can help put your school fee funding<br />

plans into the context of your wider financial situation.<br />

What are the pros/cons of parents/grandparents paying the<br />

school fees? Setting up a bare trust is the most tax efficient<br />

method for grandparents to pay the fees. The pros for this<br />

are that it is potentially inheritance tax free, can be relatively<br />

straightforward to set up and makes use of the child’s tax<br />

allowances with any growth held outside of the grandparent’s<br />

estate. The cons are the exposure to investment risk and the<br />

fact that the child has access to the trust aged 18 which means<br />

the assets cannot be preserved in trust for future generations.<br />

Gifting is advantageous as it contributes to fees immediately and<br />

can be tax efficient by using annual gift exemptions. However,<br />

these gifts are limited to £3,000 a year per grandparent and<br />

any gifts above this level may be taxable upon death, unless<br />

the gift is using gifts out of normal income exemption.<br />

Sports<br />

Education<br />

What’s on offer to keep pupils active during chillier months? SH speaks to Dulwich Prep<br />

Cranbrook and The King’s School, Canterbury about the range of sports available<br />

Mrs Jo Wilson, Head of PE and Games<br />

at Dulwich Prep Cranbrook<br />

What range of sporting activities do you offer through<br />

the winter months? At Dulwich Prep Cranbrook the aim is<br />

always to offer as many different options as possible, whilst<br />

ensuring all children have a grounding in the mainstream<br />

sports. Football, rugby, hockey, lacrosse and netball are the<br />

main winter sports, alongside cross-country running. There<br />

is also a swimming squad and an equestrian team. Children<br />

can then choose to further their skills with after-school<br />

and lunch-time clubs. We are very proud of the number of<br />

elite players the school produces across all sports from table<br />

tennis to triathlon at county, regional and national level.<br />

Which are proving to be most popular? Sports Clubs in<br />

Little Stream (Years 1-4) are open to all, and it is interesting<br />

to see how many girls are joining in with football and<br />

rugby. There is now a separate girls’ football team for Upper<br />

School. This term we are working with two top professional<br />

football coaches to further stretch our teams, and often<br />

have visiting coaches in school to lead sessions. Already this<br />

term we were joined by a hockey coach who has trained<br />

England player Maddie Hinch, for a goal-keeping seminar.<br />

Do participants have the opportunity to travel<br />

outside the school for matches? Every child will play<br />

in competitive matches, and have the opportunity to<br />

represent their school. It is a lovely opportunity for family<br />

to come and watch and cheer on their team and most<br />

importantly enjoy a match tea afterwards! Most matches<br />

are during the school day and occasionally on a Saturday.<br />

How do you engage those pupils who may be reluctant<br />

to take part in traditional winter sports? Are there<br />

alternative options to keep active? Not every child will<br />

enjoy traditional team sports, which is why the Dulwich<br />

Inspires Wednesday afternoon programme is so important.<br />

Children can choose from a range of exciting options – this<br />

term includes Drawing, Walking and Talking, involving<br />

a countryside ramble and chat; or abseiling and climbing<br />

at a local outdoor centre. Ballet and Karate are also on<br />

offer. Every week we hold the Dulwich Run at break time.<br />

Open to children and staff it is a great opportunity to get<br />

outside and blow away the cobwebs. Other alternatives<br />

include Parkour Club, yoga and relaxation and badminton.<br />

We also run a very popular ski trip every winter.<br />

Richard Singfield,<br />

Director of Sport, The<br />

King’s School, Canterbury<br />

What range of sporting<br />

activities do you offer<br />

through the winter months?<br />

Name the sport and the chances are that The King’s School,<br />

Canterbury can offer it, or at the very least aid with training<br />

that can augment a pupil’s talent or passion. Sports on offer<br />

throughout winter vary from the traditional team sports of<br />

football, hockey, lacrosse, netball and rugby to more individual<br />

endeavours such as badminton, fencing, horse riding, cross<br />

country, golf (making use of the indoor simulator), sailing,<br />

shooting, squash and swimming.<br />

Which are proving to be most popular? Hockey, rugby,<br />

football and netball are played by all pupils throughout the<br />

school during the Autumn and Lent terms with multiple teams<br />

of varied abilities catered for. Beyond the school playing fields,<br />

sports such as swimming, fencing and rowing are very popular,<br />

helped by the great coaching and facilities on offer. A new<br />

indoor sports facility at the school’s Malthouse site features 18<br />

underfloor fencing pistes making it the third biggest in England.<br />

The strong history of rowing at King’s no doubt plays a part in<br />

its popularity with former pupils including Olympic medallists<br />

Tom Ransley, Frances Houghton and Fred Scarlett.<br />

Do participants have the opportunity to travel outside the<br />

school for matches? A full schedule of fixtures against other<br />

schools ensures all pupils have an opportunity to compete<br />

should they wish. The school is also always prepared to<br />

help those with special talents that go beyond what King’s<br />

can feasibly offer. Former pupil and Winter Paralympic<br />

skier Millie Knight (pictured) is a perfect example. Her<br />

busy schedule required arranging time for her important<br />

training regime and travel alongside her studies. Her hard<br />

work certainly paid off when she returned from the <strong>2019</strong><br />

PyeongChang Winter Paralympics with three medals.<br />

How do you engage those pupils who may be reluctant to<br />

take part in traditional winter sports? Are there alternative<br />

options to keep active? ‘Enjoyable Sport for All’ sums up the<br />

King’s approach. A balanced approach to winning and losing<br />

is seen as an integral part of a rounded, holistic education.<br />

Alongside the general sports on offer, King’s has a very<br />

wide-ranging and popular activities programme that makes<br />

good use of the school’s Recreation Centre. Various indoor<br />

sports and activities such as aerobics, pilates, basketball,<br />

badminton, and squash are available alongside a wellequipped<br />

gym, fitness studio and strength and conditioning<br />

room meaning there really is something for everyone.<br />

Jane Howard’s<br />

Fables from<br />

the Farm<br />

Jane explains the practice of ‘pannage’<br />

I<br />

love these chilly autumn mornings. With the mist in the<br />

hollows and the grass twinkling with dew it’s magical<br />

– especially if you’re up early. Rather quaintly, since<br />

leaving London some 20 years ago, the time at which we<br />

get up fascinates our non-farming city friends. When we<br />

point out that it’s really only the dairy boys who have to get<br />

up at an unspeakably early hour, whatever the weather and<br />

whatever the time of year, they appear a little crestfallen.<br />

Along with the lack of a smock and pitchfork, an<br />

8am start doesn’t fit the bucolic image. Besides, our<br />

Sussex beef cows would be quite genuinely surprised<br />

to see us with the larks, although the pigs are always<br />

ready and standing by whatever time we arrive.<br />

But any day soon they won’t be waiting and then I’ll likely<br />

not see them for a couple of weeks. But<br />

I won’t be one bit concerned because the<br />

acorns will have dropped. And nothing is<br />

more delicious to a porker than a ripe acorn.<br />

With about 20 acres of woodland to roam,<br />

they could be anywhere and a session of hide<br />

and seek is not on the agenda. Besides which<br />

they always turn up again – fat and happy.<br />

But fat for the right reason. All the<br />

pigs in question are boys – an important<br />

precaution for anyone keeping woodland<br />

pigs in these parts. Apart from The Forest<br />

of Dean, the Kent/Sussex borders have<br />

more wild boar than anywhere else in the<br />

UK. They are very shy, nocturnal creatures<br />

so rarely seen, but having learnt the hard way I can assure<br />

you they are about. And at this time of year solitary<br />

males are wandering the Weald looking for romance.<br />

A few years ago my two sows – Gloria and Sybil – were<br />

“For hundreds<br />

of years peasant<br />

farmers released<br />

their pigs into<br />

the woods at<br />

this time of year<br />

to fatten up for<br />

Christmas”<br />

down in the woods and unbeknown to me up to no good.<br />

By the time I saw the fleeting and fleeing back end of a<br />

wild boar – tusks, stripes, spots, the lot – it<br />

was too late. Some three months, three weeks<br />

and three days later (pigs are very particular<br />

in that department) Gloria delivered a whole<br />

host of stripy, spotty hoglets. Fab apart from<br />

the fact that they were wild and never came<br />

near me. Not even for food. Catching and<br />

keeping them proved impossible so now it’s<br />

a strictly Boys Only policy for participation<br />

in the autumn acorn extravaganza.<br />

But what’s going on here is nothing new.<br />

For hundreds of years peasant farmers released<br />

their pigs into the woods at this time of year<br />

to fatten up for Christmas in a practice known<br />

as pannage. The Weald was the stronghold<br />

of pannage in Britain. In 1086, Domesday Book records<br />

indicate that around 150,000 pigs were being driven every<br />

season from the Low Weald to the woods of the High Weald.<br />

Farmers from a particular village returned with their pigs to<br />

the same woodland pig pasture called a den year after year.<br />

With the exception of The New Forest – and Coopers<br />

Farm! – pannage isn’t really practiced any more but it has<br />

certainly left its mark on this part of the world. The frequent<br />

passage of pigs being driven to and from the dens formed<br />

sunken tracks known as droves, connecting the dens – often<br />

as much as 20 miles away – to their parent villages. Over<br />

time the dens became settlements in their own right –<br />

hence Horsmonden, Witherenden, Biddenden – and the<br />

roughly north-south driving routes remain as a pattern of<br />

lanes, bridleways and footpaths radiating away from the<br />

High Weald. Quite handy for those roving wild boars!<br />
