Lodge Brothers funeral directors Ashford and funeral directors Woking as well as the rest of the many Lodge Brothers branches throughout the UK, are passionate about making arrangements easier and less of a burden for memorials and funeral of loved ones. They are also compassionate individuals who strive to make a difference within the community in any way possible.
Every year, Lodge Brothers funeral directors Englefield Green place a ‘Memorial Tree’ in their branch.
Families who have lost a loved one in the past year are invited to write a message on a card to them and hang it on the tree in memory.
At funeral directors Chertsey, Branch Arranger Helen Kempster and District Manager Richard Leachman (pictured) invited the local vicar to host a short service of blessing at the branch.
Over a dozen recently bereaved clients joined in with the service, led by Rev Tim Hillier of St Peter’s Church.

Creative living at its best!
This small terraced cottage in South West London is a gem of a project - humble and modest at a glance, with the potential to sparkle. Commissioned by a visitor to last year's Grand Designs Live, the Architects responsible for making 'the worst house on the street' shine, were Grand Designs Live London based exhibitors DBLO Associates architects Fulham.
Folding glass doors replaced the exterior kitchen wall, small window and door – allowing light and life to seamlessly flow through the house from outside in and vice versa and creating a flush floor threshold with the same floor finish inside and outside. The highly insulated extension with cedum green roof incorporates western red cedar timber cladding, which frames the glass opening - maintaining the nostalgia and personality of the cottage, whilst adding new contemporary and eco credentials to the property. Given a limited budget and the fact that it had to include a first floor extension, two bathrooms and full redecoration, the design team sought to use readily available, affordable materials and products including tiles, flooring and lighting. 'The kitchen came from IKEA and the tiles from Topps Tiles'- Claire Hale (Partner) - which kept cost low whilst cleverly detailed style remained high and resulted in this flexible and bespoke living space which will be enjoyed year round during family time and for entertaining.
DBLO architects Clapham worked closely with the client to make their Grand Design a reality - proving that budget doesn't have to be an obstacle, that with good interpretation of your clients brief, an innovative approach and imagination - you can achieve a grand solution that suits you. The total cost for this project excluding VAT came in at £145,000.
DBLO Associates Architects will be exhibiting at the show in May. Find them in Grand Build stand B21

When banting diet begins, the first month or two are almost guaranteed to cause a massive drop in weight. Are you a banter determined to lose excessive weight the easy way? Find some banting recipes that will help you along the way with banting healthy eating.
What we have found is that after a while a few of the 'newly-lean' reach a frustrating plateau. Don't be disheartened, you are not alone! Sally-Ann Creed, The Real Meal Revolution's Banting Nutrition Therapist has had heaps of experience with Banters who run into this problem.
She comments, "The first thing one needs to remember is that weight loss is unique to every person. A book, and The Real Meal Revolution book in particular, can be an amazing help but 20% of the time, you'll need a closer look from a professional. There are over a million things that could be standing in your way that you are not even aware of. It could be as simple as the type of yoghurt you are religiously eating to keep up your fat intake. Something you're allergic to might be pumping up that tyre around your waist. The speed bumps are endless."
Keeping this in mind, Sally-Ann has greased her 20 year-old arsenal of weight loss weapons to create a simple and easy to follow set of rules.
The ten commandments
- Eat enough animal fat. This is central to banting. Animal fat DOES NOT make you fat, and you need to eat it. Small amounts at a time make you feel full and stop you from overeating.
- Eat enough vegetables. Vegetables should be your bulk-food and this means that you must try to have veggies with every meal. Green vegetables are the best – low in carbs and full of nutrients. There are a great many different vegetables on the Green List. Make sure that you have variety in your diet.
- Don't snack. For the first week or so of banting, that is, when you are going carb-cold-turkey, you may need to snack periodically, if only to keep your sanity. Make sure that you have banting-friendly snacks at hand. Remember that it is essential to have a good breakfast to set you up for the day. If you aren't losing those hunger pangs, increase the animal fat in your diet.
- Don't lie to yourself. Eating carbs that are perceived to be proteins, like legumes, baked beans, peanuts and quinoa, will undermine your banting attempts. Pay attention to the Red List – the forbidden foods. Quite simply, a red-listed item is either toxic or will cause weight gain. Foods on the Orange List must be eaten in moderation, with careful attention to quantity and carb content.
- Don't over- or under-eat. New Banters get nervous about the idea of not snacking and tend to go overboard at mealtimes. Don't worry about this. As long as there is enough fat in your diet, you will soon, without effort, be eating moderately-sized meals that will carry you through to the next meal. Never force food down your throat. When you are full, stop eating! If you don't feel like lunch, don't have it.
- Don't eat too much protein. We cannot stress this enough. Banting is NOT high-protein eating. No more than 80 to 90 g of meat or fish is what you should be eating with any meal. [But don't be over-fastidious, to the extent that you feel deprived. If, on occasion, you eat at a steakhouse, choose the smaller option on the menu and don't fret. What is more, it is quite unnecessary to chop the pointy bit off the chicken breast!] Remember, the main thrust of banting is to cut the carbs from one's diet and increase your fat intake. The consumption of proteins should be unaffected or even reduced.
- Be alert! Many ostensibly 'healthy' products and ready-made meals are full of carbs. Before you buy something, check the label. Five grams of carbs is the cut-off. If the carb content is higher, don't buy it. Also, avoid any product that professes to be 'low-fat'. The chances are that it will be loaded with carbs to compensate for the inevitable loss of flavour. When you start scrutinising product labels you will realise why it has in the past been so hard to lose weight.
- Avoid too many fruits and nuts. Fruit is full of natural fructose (the substance that makes it sweet). Fructose is perceived to be 'good sugar' but for a Banter there is no such thing. Sugar is sugar regardless of its perceived 'goodness' and, while natural sugar is far preferable to refined sugar, its consumption needs to be strictly controlled. Of all the fruits, berries are best but even berries need to be restricted in some cases. The nuts on the Green List are low in carbs and great snack foods, but you must not go overboard. Nuts may cause weight gain in some individuals, especially women, so must be restricted to an occasional small handful. Macadamias are best as they are loaded with healthy fat and almonds are packed with fibre and goodness. Always choose raw nuts in preference to commercial roasted nuts, as natural is always better.
- Control your dairy. Although dairy is good for you, it does contain carbs and can be a stumbling block for some people. When you start banting, avoid eating too much dairy. In other words, limit your cheese intake as much as possible, use whole milk and double cream yoghurt instead of low fat choices and have cream in your coffee. Butter is always good.
- Be strong!
THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT! Banting warnings and banting health risks
Watch what you drink. We’re faced with a dilemma here. We’re trying to promote health and overall well-being so promoting booze is not in our interest as alcohol is highly toxic. Dry wines, most spirits, low energy beers and a few other drinks are safe BUT that is only from a carb perspective. Alcopops, normal beer, any spirit mixer or cocktail will halt any weight loss you’re experiencing. It’s easy for us to promote low-carb alcoholic beverages but one needs to remember that a low-carb 5% vol. beer is still 5% toxic. Alcohol is also really good at draining motivation, lowering inhibitions, impairing driving ability and and and... So we leave drinking up to you. Consider the Eleventh Commandment our "drinking disclaimer". You’re a grown-up and how much booze you choose to drink is up to you.
A Tantric Journey Sex Therapy is far beneficial than generally perceived. The sex therapy has been able to heal more than 3000 women worldwide. The sex therapy testimonials by Tantric Journey’s clients are lathered with gratitude and immense relief from the taunting issues that haunted these women. Tantric Journey has allowed many to turn around their lives into a more positive and happy note from a dark and hopeless place.
Women who have never been able to maintain steady or healthy relationships have been able to find life partners and lead happy lives. Couples who have been torn apart from emotional restraint and intimacy issues have been able to reconcile and maintain fruitful relationships. Sex therapy has been able to heal individuals of childhood physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. Sex therapy has also allowed victims of domestic violence, toxic relationships and day to day harassments due to social condition untangle themselves away from the mesh of trauma.
Tantric Journey sex therapist performs a clothes on bodywork or a full body oil massage; both employing techniques that harbor the theory of Cellular Memory.
The sex therapist London can provide talking therapy to help ease mental constraints and enter a comfort zone to discuss the possible roots of the sexual problem. The Tantric Journey sex therapist is trained on techniques to revert the body’s cells from a negative state to a positive state. The trauma is stored at a cellular level where the slightest touch or tinge will evoke the undesirable feelings that can be very apparent or leave faint nostalgic reminiscence. This is possible as the body’s cells communicate by chemicals. The Tantric Journey sex therapy London evokes these subconscious feelings and has the client ejects it from their system once and for all.
A sex therapist in London can provide psychosexual therapy to help individuals and couples with sexual related problems through counselling, nursing or medicine. Often the sex therapist in London prescribes medicine to help with these issues as talking therapy is not fully capable of resolving the sexual related issues. Often the sex therapist prescribes medicine even for the mildest of sexual related problems such as erectile or climaxing issues.
Chemicals tend to alter the human hormonal functionality and therefore hinder natural functionality. Therefore Tantric Journey’s therapist in London provides a natural treatment on the basis of Cellular Memory where the human body learns to build its own defence mechanism against the sexual related problems. A Tantric Journey’s therapist can offer talking therapy to enter a comfort zone and diagnosis and perform clothes on bodywork or a full body oil massage employing techniques that support Cellular Memory.
Read what our clients have to say about Dukes of Daisy:
Polite, caring, good sense of humour, very respectful. Hi, my name is Mattias. I have lived in the UK since 2002 as I was born and raised in Sweden. I feel that I am an open and honest, well-mannered person, often called nice (sometimes too nice), with a positive outlook on life.
"I was a little bit nervous when thinking about using male escorts, a colleague uses this service monthly and spoke highly of Darren. Once I got in contact with Darren over the phone he put me at ease. We met in a pub close to my office for drinks and meal. He was a perfect gentlemen and he filled my evening with lots of laughs. Will definitely recommend" Margaret, London
"First time doing anything like this, a little nervous - more excited if I'm honest. I had always been bi-curious so I booked Rose for some flirting and dancing at a bar. Needless to say it was a fun night and would definitely consider the opposite sex again"anonymous, London
"Nicole seemed like the type of woman I had always been interested in but never confident enough to approach on the street or at a bar. Having a woman like her all to myself for the evening felt great and would encourage other gents to try it out for themselves before they shake their heads" Dale, London
