Letter from the editor – September 2023

The summer has been amazing, but I have to say I am now ready to welcome September in, and with it the routine it brings. Lovely days out, trips away and visits to family and friends have meant lots of memories made, but trying to produce a paper in between all of that is pretty tricky. Having my days free once more, now the children are back to school and clubs, makes writing articles and making sales much easier, even if it means it is also time for those last minute cries of ‘Muuuuuum…I can’t find my school book/ tie / lunchbox’ to start up again!

In this paper we bring you events and news from across the district, including pictures of the talented Tandridge students who collected their GCSE and A level results in August. It has been so great to see their incredible achievements. We also catch up with two organisations who are vital in their community: the Westway Centre and East Surrey Dial-a-Ride.

River’s Kitchen is back, with a quick and simple honey chilli chicken recipe, while Deborah Smith from Menagerie Interiors is all about lighting this month. Champ Consultants’ Chantal Baker talks interest rates, and Adrian Van Aalst brings us up to speed with the start of AFC Whyteleafe’s new season.

Our competition prize is four tickets to the Caterham Beer festival, which is being held at Soper Hall on the 15th and 16th of September. It’s always a popular event for the beer and wine drinkers out there, so don’t forget to enter!

See you next month.


P.S Have you noticed the fab jumpsuit I am wearing in my photo? It’s from Laura Hamilton’s Laura x collection by Verity and Me. I love the colour and have sported it at quite a few summer events!
