AV Smith & Sons Say Farewell to Branch Arranger Sheila Sherwood


After just two and a half years with the company, Sheila Sherwood, Funeral Arranger at AV Smith & Sons, Hillingdon, is leaving to start a new career with British Airways at nearby Heathrow Airport. In her time with Lodge Brothers, Sheila has arranged just over 250 funerals. She has endeared herself to clients with her calm and empathetic manner, and her colleagues admire lively sense of humour and teamwork.

Her office is festooned with ‘thank-you’ cards from grateful clients and, as this web-site will testify, a whole raft of testimonials.

Our local vicar at St John’s Church, Hillingdon, Reverend Robert Harrison commented, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with Sheila; she has such a kind and caring nature that is so reassuring for bereaved families. She has been an integral part of the very fabric of Hillingdon village life and she will be sorely missed”.

Sheila said, “I have really enjoyed working for Lodge Brothers; the people are fantastic and the job is extremely satisfying, however, I just feel ready for a career move.”


Explore the beautiful historical sites of London


To the north of the Royal Courts of Justice is the Temple an area in London close to the Temple Church. It is one of the main notable legal districts of the capital. The Temple area contains the Inner Temple and Middle Temple which are two of the Inns of Court. The 12th century name recorded was Novum Temple which means ‘New Temple’ named from a house belonging to the Knights of Templar. The name is shares with Inner Temple, Middle Temple, Temple Church and Temple Bar. It consists of barrister’s chambers, solicitors’ offices, notable legal institutions such as employment Appeal Tribunal.

Originally being the precinct of Knights Templar whose Temple church was named in honor of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem.  The pope granted their possessions to the Knights of Hospitaller upon their dissolution where King Edward II ignored the claims to the Knights of Hospitaller and divide the Temple into Inner Temple and Outer Temple. The rightful claim was given back to the Knights of Hospitaller in 1324 but yet gain to another King Edward II favorite called Hugh le Despencer. On Hugh’s death n 1326 the Inner Temple was passed onto the first Mayor of London then to William de Langford in 1333 for a ten year lease.

In order to visit it more places with similar history Holiday Lets London Flats for rent near British Museum recommends you to visit St Paul’s Cathedral. Also Holiday Lets London states when looking to rent a flat in London, to do an in depth research on each attraction to be visited hence the awe of the place can be enjoyed. Also ensure that yourself catering accommodation is in close proximity to all the attraction sites you are planning to visit, this will make you less tired and would help you save money.

There was a petition in 1137 by the Knights towards the king to rectify the grant to a layman. As a result the Inner Temple was divided between the consecrated land to the east and unconsecrated land in the west. Hence the eastern land was called the Inner Temple and the western land the Middle Temple namely. Langford continued to hold the Middle Temple for a reduced rent. The area of the Temple was increased due to the Victoria Embankment when the River Thames was embanked. The original bank of the river can be seen in a drop in ground level from the Inner Temple Gardens or the stairs at the bottom of Essex Street. The core of the district is found in the City Of London and consists of two Inns of Court: Inner Temple (eastern part) and Middle Temple (western part). Both the Inns each have their own dining halls, gardens and libraries and administrative offices all located in their part of the temple. A majority of the land is taken over by buildings called chambers where the barristers practice. Many of the chambers were used as residential quarters for the barristers until the 20th century until a shortage of space for professional purposes limited the residential quarters to the top floors where it was occupied by senior most barristers. Another building to visit while at the Tempe is the 19thcentury building called Old The Outer Temple situated between Essex Court and Strand which is just on the outside of the Middle Temple.

Just like Holland Park giving its name to the Holland Park tube station and Hyde Park giving name to the Hyde Park corner tube station; Temple gives it name to the Temple tube station. Holiday Lets London recommends visiting the Holland Park and Hyde Park which are two interesting attractions sites of London harboring its own stories.

Summer salad selections and recommendations

With summer around the corner, the clocks have changed, days are becoming longer with excitement in the air. Everyone is preparing for the summer by getting their tan at a salon, frequenting the gym, people have taken to running and cycling along the Thames. What better way to get into shape than with some scrumptious unusual salads. I found these delicious summer salad recipes from Jamie Oliver, which were too good not to share:


1 small red onion, peeled
1-2 fresh red chillies, deseeded
2 handfuls ripe red or yellow tomatoes
1 lemon
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
410 g tinned chickpeas, drained, or around 4 large handfuls of soaked and cooked chickpeas
1 handful fresh mint, chopped
1 handful fresh green or purple basil, finely ripped
100 g feta cheese

Chickpeas are pretty under-used in this country, to be honest. In places like Morocco, Italy and Spain they are prized like our Jersey new potato. Still, we have a lot more choice now than we used to have. If you go to a Spanish deli or specialist counter, you will generally be able to find jars of cooked chickpeas in water and these are the ones you want to make this salad really good. They should look a little plumper than tinned chickpeas but, of course, both tinned ones or dried ones can be used successfully. This salad is a great one for making up as you go along; you can use different spices, sun-dried tomatoes and spicy chorizo sausages, for instance.

First of all, finely slice your red onion. Once that's done, finely slice your chillies then roughly chop your tomatoes, mixing them in with the onion and chillies. Scrape all of this, and the juice, into a bowl and dress with the juice of half a lemon and 3 tablespoons of good extra virgin olive oil. Season to taste. Heat the chickpeas in a pan, then add 90 per cent of them to the bowl. Mush up the remaining chickpeas and add these as well – they will give a nice creamy consistency. Allow to marinate for a little while and serve at room temperature.

Just as you're ready to serve, give the salad a final dress with the fresh mint and basil. Taste one last time for seasoning – you may want to add the juice from your remaining lemon half at this point. Place on a nice serving dish and crumble over the feta cheese.

 4 large handfuls mixed tomatoes
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
good-quality red wine vinegar
½ clove garlic, grated
2 teaspoons fresh horseradish, grated, or jarred hot horseradish
1 small handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely sliced

For this salad it's great to try and get a whole mixture of different tomatoes, at room temperature, nice and ripe. Let them sunbathe on the window ledge if need be! Try and get hold of fresh horseradish – give your greengrocer a challenge to get some in.

Cut the bigger tomatoes into slices about 1cm/½ inch thick. You can halve the cherry tomatoes or leave them whole. Then sprinkle them all with a good dusting of sea salt. Put them in a colander and leave them for 30 minutes. What's going to happen here is that the salt will draw the excess moisture out of the tomatoes, intensifying their flavour. Don't worry about the salad being too salty, as a lot of the salt drips away.

Place the tomatoes in a large bowl and dress with enough extra virgin olive oil to loosen (approximately 6 tablespoons), and 1–2 tablespoons of vinegar, but do add these to your own taste. Toss around and check for seasoning – you may or may not need salt but will certainly need pepper. Add the garlic. Now start to add the horseradish. Stir in a couple of teaspoons to begin with, toss around and taste. If you like it a bit hotter, add a bit more horseradish. All I do now is get some finely sliced flat-leaf parsley (stalks and leaves) and mix this into the tomatoes. Toss everything together and serve as a wonderful salad, making sure you mop up all the juices with some nice squashy bread.

This salad is fantastic with roast beef, goat's cheese or jacket potatoes. And to be honest, even if you put these tomatoes in a roasting tray and roasted them with some sausages scattered around them it would be nice.

Affordable and upmarket peaceful accommodation

Pack the car and don’t forget bicycles and walking shoes. Why I hear you ask? We are off to the countryside for a weekend getaway, a well-deserved break from the hectic city life to a Bed and Breakfast West Sussex. I decided to treat my wife for her birthday to a mini break at a romantic bed and breakfast that my colleague recommended. The beauty of this accommodation is that it’s only an hour’s drive from home so we will have more time to spend together enjoying each other.

We both enjoy being active so it’s the perfect surrounding for us to explore with an added bonus of home cooked meals and a scrumptious breakfast.

I am very excited to be spending quality time on this special occasion with my wife and for her to be spoilt with all the activities I have planned.
