Editor’s LETTER

Happy summer holidays everyone! It’s so nice to bring you a properly sunny and summery edition of BN5, with the glorious weather we’re enjoying (as we go to print anyway!) It looks as if we might get a hot Henfield Summer Show and we’re looking forward to bringing you all the pictures and news from the show in our September edition. St Peter’s School have had an incredibly busy term, after all the hard work of SATS tests (boo, hiss) the children enjoyed some fun with a very professional production of Joseph, a sunshiney Summer Fete and a fun-filled sports day and picnic. They also proudly raised the cup at the Chanctonbury Schools Cricket Festival - congratulations to all the children involved. Sarah met with Small Dole artist Liz de Pauley who has the enviable job of ‘Artist in Residence’ at Horsham Museum. Liz has uncovered some wonderful artefacts and enjoyed digging around in the museum archives, read her story on page 30. She’s exhibiting at Horsham Museum so do pop along and view her work. We wish you all a wonderful summer holiday and look forward to hearing all your news and events for September issue.

Emma Mitchell, Chief Executive said “We are really pleased with the awards that have been won this year. Sam Brixey, who leaves us in a couple of months after finishing his two year training, put a lot of effort into making his table and for him to end his training on such a high note with these Awards makes us all really proud. However, despite these awards, I am just as pleased for our other trainees and the hard work they put into their entries, they are all winners to me”.

A big thank you to all those who sponsored me for my parachute jump earlier this year – I raised over £1,000 for Waterford Animal Rescue.

They are totally self-funding and run by volunteers so every penny goes to the animals welfare. Rosie McMillan

Sussex Police update Message in a bottle - this simple, but very effective scheme from Lions International encourages people to put all their personal and medical details on a form and leave this in a plastic pot, illustrated above, in their refrigerator. A label on their front door alerts emergency services that they are using the scheme and can save valuable time if emergency treatment is required and nobody else is in the house. The pots can also be placed in cars, caravans, boats or any place you are likely to be when this vital information is needed. Pots can be obtained through Club members or from many doctors and pharmacies. Photocard licences replaced paper driving licences in 1998, yet these must be replaced every 10 years.

AUGUST 2013 | News He and ex-chairman Wendy Whittaker painstakingly put together all the required documentation, practices and controls necessary to achieve this award, which has great significance for the tennis club. The process included drawing up many volumes of documents and manuals, setting up approved LTA coaching for juniors and attending a variety of courses on Child Protection, Diversity and Safety and Wellbeing. Henfield Tennis Club chairman Digby Stephenson said: “This award is proof that HTC is a properly organised and competently managed club, which should both attract new members, and make grant or loan applications more achievable. “I am very grateful to everyone in the club who made this possible by their hard work” Henfield Tennis Club has been accredited for four years and will be promoted on the national Clubmark website. Anyone interested in joining Henfield Tennis Club should see the website at www.henfieldtennisclub.com or contact the membership secretary at caitlinking1@live.co.uk

trict will come forward through Neighbourhood Plans.” The plan calls for development which “reflects the distinctive towns and villages, retains their separate identity and character and prevents coalescence.” The MPs also express their surprise that one of the company’s directors, Lord Taylor of Goss Moor, is leading a review of planning guidance for the Government, as this appears to be a conflict of interest. They have written to the Communities and Local Government Secretary, Eric Pickles, asking him to investigate the matter.

Hurstpierpoint Singers Sussex MPs slam Mayfields new town plan Mid Sussex MP Nicholas Soames and Arundel and South Downs MP Nick Herbert have united to condemn the proposed Mayfields new town of up to 10,000 houses between Henfield and Sayers Common. In a strongly worded letter to Mayfield Market Towns, the company promoting the development, the MPs say that the company is “setting out to undermine” localism and Mid Sussex District Council’s proposed district plan, which has ruled out the new town. After one the company’s directors wrote to Mid Sussex Council warning them that “the writing is on the wall” for more housing, the MPs respond that it is “entirely unacceptable for you to pressurise local councils in this way .... We should like to remind you that, under the Localism Act, the South East Plan has been scrapped and that our district councils have the right and the responsibility to determine the correct level of housing for their areas.” Mid Sussex’s proposed district plan, published on 7 May, sets a housing requirement of 10,600 homes between 2011-2031. Outside the strategic sites identified, of which the Mayfields site is not one, it states that “the homes to be provided elsewhere in the Dis-

White Mischief offers their brides the unique opportunity to design their own gown in association with the designer Augusta Jones who they represent in the UK. Once the design team in Hong Kong have put together a dream dress for a White Mischief bride, they will often add it into their collection for the following year. Now, with a couple of designs in hand, Christine Marchant, owner of White Mischief has been invited to visit the designer in Hong Kong to see the process through from start to finish. The visit will include working with the Augusta Jones design team to create the patterns for the gowns and mock-up a trial dress. She will then take it to the factory in Hanzhou Province in China to see the process of cutting, making and beading the gown for one of their lucky brides. You will be able to follow this journey on the White Mischief blog and Facebook (when access is available as this is limited in China). Christine said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fabulous opportunity to see and understand the whole process from start to finish â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something so few people in the industry get the opportunity to do. Most wedding gowns are made in the Far East and we know that Augusta Jones run a very ethical business, ensuring that their staff welfare is paramount and this too will be assuring to see.â&#x20AC;?

Four-midable Henfield FC U13’s Thank you! The Henfield U13’s achieved an amazing feat this summer. Having entered four tough tournaments, including the inaugural Henfield tournament, they won them all! They triumphed in the Wick Dynamos tournament in early May, the Henfield tournament also in May, the Worthing Dynamos tournament in early June and completed a memorable quartet by winning the Worthing Minors tournament for the third year in succession. Manager, Donna Angood was full of praise for the team: “Despite being the team all others were talking about as the ones to beat, the players continued to dominate their opponents and thoroughly deserve their rewards”. Head Coach, Darren Angood added: “This team continue to produce outstanding performances and they have now won their last five tournaments having not lost in 44 tournament matches and even more remarkably have gone 35 games since last conceding a goal!!! A superb achievement given the high standard of tournaments entered. Arsene Wenger believed he had the ‘invincibles’ but he hadn’t witnessed the footballing presence and power of Henfield FC U13’s!” Assistant Coach, Phil Hide simply dubbed the team “The Machine”. The team, who are sponsored by Braziers now look forward to a new season in the Mid Sussex Sunday League. They are on the lookout for new players, in particular a goalkeeper. If you would like to discuss the possibility of joining this very successful team please contact Darren or Donna on 01273 495534 dm.angood@btinternet.com.

Henfield Football Club would like to say a big thankyou to Rushfields Farm Shop for allowing them to purchase burgers and sausages at a ridiculously cheap price for the barbecue at the U9, U10 and U11 Football Friendly in July.

go to all those who organised and ran the supporting events. Last year’s proposed match was a ‘wash-out’ so we were delighted that Simon Nye was able to give up his time to attend. It was an afternoon enjoyed by all, and as a result we have been able to send a total sum of £816.15 to the Hospice. Saturday 22 June was the annual Sunflower Day for St Barnabas. Despite the inclement weather we were very grateful to all the helpers who braved the conditions. Our thanks go to all those who contributed so generously. We were able to send a total of £501.51 to the Hospice. Look out for our next fund raising event in September. Peggy McComas

The Chanctonbury Chorus is a well-established group of about 50 singers who enjoy getting together weekly in Steyning to rehearse choral music. We then give public performances two or three times a year. The great thing is that to sing with the chorus, you do not need current musical experience as there is no audition and members are coached as we go along. Nevertheless, the results are superb and a great part of Sussex musical life. Have a look at our website www. chanctonburychorus.org for more about the chorus. Singing in a choir gives you a real buzz so why not come along for a taster session? You might have sung at school but been away from singing for years; you might just have always wanted to try it; so, whether you are experienced or not, come and give it a go! Together with our orchestra and professional soloists, we are going to perform Haydn’s very popular Nelson Mass and Vaughan Williams ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’ in November. We are running a free introductory open rehearsal on Wednesday 11 September from 7.30 until 9.30pm in Steyning. There is no commitment so you have nothing to lose and much to enjoy - come and try! Ring Christine on 01903 815467 for more details. Mary O’Dell, Secretary Chanctonbury Chorus

BN5 Birds I am an optimist, but one thing that makes me sad is the declining state of our native wildlife. The State of Nature Survey just published has highlighted the affect that we are having on wildlife. It reinforced what we already knew – that 60% of our native wildlife is in decline and 1 in 10 species is in danger. My husband can remember walking down the brooks in the 1960s and finding all sorts of bird nests in the hedgerows and watching swallows, swifts and house martins wheeling around. Those nests and birds aren’t there nowadays. Our next door neighbours had house sparrows nesting under their eaves every year however, for the last two years, the sparrows haven’t nested there. Being a member of Henfield Birdwatch has made me more aware of problems that wildlife face but it has

also made me more appreciative of the wildlife that we can still enjoy. 24 singing nightingales were heard in one evening’s drive around the Parish in early May, a similar drive a few weeks later identified 13 singing nightingales. Cuckoos still migrate to the Parish when many areas of England no longer have them. One of our members has had the good fortune of a lesser spotted woodpecker visiting her garden – attracted by a coconut hung up for the birds. This bird is on the red list – that means that it is globally threatened with a 50% decline in the UK breeding over the last 25 years. It is a black and white barred bird a bit bigger than a robin, the male has a bright red patch on the top of its head. This lucky lady also has a great spotted woodpecker nesting in a hole which it has made in a dead tree in her garden. This bird is about the size of a blackbird, black and white with a red rump, the male has a red patch on the back of its head and is well known for the drumming noise when making its nest hole in dead trees. So, despite the decline in wildlife nationwide, Henfield can still show a glimmer of light. Visit the Henfield Birdwatch web site on www. henfieldbirdwatch.co.uk Deborah Colgate

The Community Church Henfield is set to run free sessions to help people in the local area get on top of their household finances. Members of the church wanted to help the community to best handle the economic climate so underwent specialised training from UK charity, Christians Against Poverty (CAP). Now they are offering the short course aimed to putting the joy back into money by teaching people how to chart their household income and take control of their expenditure. Money Coach Steve McKie who will be leading the sessions said: “With households feeling the squeeze on their disposable income, we’ve all got to get a bit more savvy about our money to get through these tough times. If you know how to save and budget effectively, it can have a hugely positive impact on the whole family. We hope that we can help people, quietly and confidentially, take control rather than relying on guess work so they can plan for the future and weather the storm.” The Community Church Henfield is one of more than 1,200 churches of different Christian traditions across the UK who are regularly offering the course, as they work together to positively impact the communities around them. The CAP Money course has been found to be useful for newly retired people, soon-to-be students, mums dealing with mounting bills, families saving for a wedding and everyone in between. The first course takes place on Thursday 12 September at 8pm and will run on one evening each week for three weeks in the Free church hall, Henfield High Street. To find out more about the CAP Money course visit www.capmoney.org and to book your place on the Henfield course call Steve on 07530 243121.

AUGUST 2013 | News Henfield Parish Council Planning issues are taking up more and more of Henfield Parish Councils time. Council provided a lengthy and comprehensive objection to the application by Barratts (Southern) Ltd to develop 160 new homes in West End Lane. A full copy of Council’s response to the Planning Authority can be found on the Councils website www.henfield.gov.uk If you do not have access to a computer, the response can be viewed in the Council office at The Henfield Hall. At the time of going to press it is understood the application will be considered by Horsham District Council at its planning meeting in August. Preparation for producing a Neighbourhood Plan is also continuing. The first required action is for the Planning Authority to decide the area to which the Plan will apply. Representatives of the Plans Steering Group have held meetings with: the Chief Executive of Horsham District Council to find out the Planning Authorities views; Woodmancote and Shermanbury Parish Councils to determine whether the Plan should also cover these Parishes; and with Upper Beeding Parish Council to decide how to resolve the position regarding Small Dole, which is part in Henfield and part in Upper Beeding Parishes. This preliminary stage of the Plans preparation is proving anything but straightforward but it is hoped that an application to designate the Plans area will be submitted to Horsham District Council in early August. Once this issue is resolved the work actually preparing the Plan can start in earnest. The Saturday Compass Bus 106 Service to Worthing has been subsidised over the last 12 months with the support of the Parish Councils through which the Service passes, including Henfield. Sadly passenger numbers continue to be disappointing and in view of this the Service will be withdrawn. The last bus will run on 31 August. The three-times-a-day Monday to Friday 106 Service will continue to run but the future of this service remains under threat unless passenger numbers improve. Following this Saturday Service withdrawal persons wishing to travel by bus from Henfield to Worthing on Saturdays can either go via Brighton (Service 17) and join the 700 Coastliner Service at Churchill Square, or go via Upper Beeding/Steyning (Service 100), to Shoreham High Street (Service 2a) and 700 Coastliner to Worthing. You are however strongly advised to check with respective bus companies to avoid long stop-overs in journey.

wonderful arrangement of Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’. The second half featured Handel, Strauss and Purcell and another solo for Sidonie Winter- Puccini’s ‘O mio babbino caro’. The evening was rounded off with ‘Last Night of the Proms’ favourites Jerusalem; Fantasia on British Sea Songs; Rule Britannia; and Land of Hope and Glory. It is hoped to repeat the Proms in the Park experience on Sunday 29 June 2014. Many thanks to all the musicians, the helpers and to Red Oaks for the use of their premises and for running their legendary Pimms Tent!

Proms in the Park The evening of Sunday 30 June saw the Proms in the Park concert in Red Oaks gardens. Over 400 people brought their blankets, chairs, picnic hampers and bubbly for a concert of music given by local musicians Brass Fusion and Royal Opera star Sidonie Winter. The post-concert collection raised money for the Henfield Youth Club, HART, and the Warren Playgroup. The concert was introduced by Brian Grindall and the first half of the varied programme included notable solos from Martin Buss (cornet), Andrew Hodges (flugel) and Paul Labus (euphonium). Drummer Dave Stewart made ‘Sing sing sing’, swing swing swing! Brass Fusion also accompanied Sidonie Winter in a

HENFIELD CRICKET FESTIVAL

T

he annual Henfield Cricket Festival was held on Henfield Common on Monday 17 June. St Peter’s Primary School faced four schools from the surrounding area, including Jolesfield, Ashurst, Upper Beeding and Steyning Primary. The festival was really fun and all the schools played really well.

St Peter’s faced Upper Beeding, Ashurst and Jolesfield and won against all three. The nail-biting match between Steyning and St Peter’s was the decider of who would win overall. Both teams played really well, however St Peter’s took more wickets and held on to their catches. St Peter’s won by 20 runs and won the trophy after missing out last year. Congratulations to all the teams that took part in the festival for playing with great enthusiasm!

Callum Papworth and Gertie Cameron

Special mention also to Ashurst Primary School who won the team cup for ‘Sportsmanship’ and to Sussex County Cricket Club who donated a Slazenger sports top to each member of the winning team.

he beginning of July saw an incredibly busy week at St Peters Primary School. It started off with the long awaited production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. The cast had been working extremely hard since January under the excellent direction of Mrs Corless and her team and together they pulled off a fantastic production. Everyone performed brilliantly but special mention must go to Sammy (Joseph), Callum (Pharo, or was it Elvis?) and Lily (narrator). The audience left with smiles on their faces and humming the tunes – a sure sign of a great show!

School sports day later in the week dawned sunny and bright – perfect weather for watching sport (if a little hot for those taking part!). Parents and carers turned out in force to support the children in their sporting challenges and the roar of the crowd could be heard for miles around! A big thank you to Mr Chick and his team for organising the day and to the PTA who did a sterling job keeping the spectators refreshed throughout the day. The good weather held and the week ended with the annual school fete organised by the PTA. Children paraded down the High Street, escorted by Henfield’s very own fire engine, and the fete was officially opened by ‘royalty’ - Gina and Domenico. All the favourite fete stalls were there: splat the rat; tombola; welly-wanging; snail racing; coconut shy; the stocks (there were plenty of children willing to pay for the privilege of throwing wet sponges at the teachers!); and crockery smashing. Visitors were treated to a demonstration from the Red Barrows (who sported an interesting array of moustaches) and the children had great fun in the obstacle race. Around £2,700 was raised for the PTA thanks to the hard work of the fete organisers and helpers, and the generosity of the visitors.

hat do bricks, barn doors and blacksmiths bellows have in common? They have all provided inspiration for Small Dole artist Liz de Pauley who has been the artist in residence at Horsham Museum since April this year.

Horsham Museum and Art Gallery has been collecting artifacts since it began in 1893. It is estimated that they have around 100,000 different items including paintings, costumes, posters, crafts and photographs, as well as everyday objects. “When I visited the museum for the first time last year I was amazed by the sheer volume and variety of interesting objects they hold” said Liz. “I was so inspired that I approached them to ask if I could paint some of them… and they said yes!” For years painting was very much a hobby for Liz, fit­ ted in around a full time job and family. “I’ve painted on and off for years,” she said, “but 14 years ago I started art classes with Lorna Grove in Henfield. It was Lorna who really inspired me and gave me the confidence to keep on painting.” She has also attended courses at Emily Ball’s studio at Seawhites art supplies in Par­ tridge Green which she describes as “a fantastic local resource”. Liz works in a variety of media including acrylic and oils and she also enjoys working in mixed media – pastels, ink and paint all together.

Liz is focussing on finding the beauty in the every­ day functional objects at the Museum – objects that, when they were being used, would have been taken for granted: “I like to try and find and then bring out the personalities of things.” They include a 19th cen­ tury Dover egg beater, a 17th century watering can, a weather vane in the shape of steam train, a Kenwood mixer and root cutters. One of Liz’s favourite items is the prototype concrete beehive which was developed at the end of the Second World War when there was a shortage of wood. The resulting paintings are beauti­ fully simple abstract images in muted tones punctu­ ated with bright splashes of colour. “The Museum has been generous and helpful, giving me free access to their collection and a room to paint in since April. I like having a focus and there is such a wealth of items to choose from. I’ve had lots of posi­ tive feedback from museum visitors as well as some very interesting conversations.”

You can visit Liz at the Museum on Fridays 2nd, 16th and 23rd August to see her in action. You can also view more of her pictures on her website at www.lizdepauleyart. co.uk The Horsham Museum and Art Gallery are open Monday to Saturday (excluding bank holidays) from 10am to 5pm and admission is free.

STOKES – heart of the village

W

hen Katharine Faber first visited Henfield when looking for somewhere to live in the Sussex countryside, she immediately fell in love with the village. And now she is at the heart of the high street as the owner of the ever-popular Stokes.

It’s hard to believe that it’s two and a half years since Linda and Adrian Stokes retired from the village shop which they successfully built up and ran for 26 years. “I really wanted to do something different from just sitting in an office all day” explained Katharine. Despite not having any retail experience, she threw herself into the job and doesn’t have any regrets. “Stokes is such a village institution and I knew that it had great potential. Linda and Adrian had set up a fantastic business and they were extremely helpful whilst I was learning the ropes in the first few months. It has been a very steep learning curve, but the staff and customers have been fantastic and I couldn’t have done it without them.” It’s clear that Katharine is passionate about the shop when she shows me round, showing me all her favourite products and new lines that she has introduced. She admits that she’s enjoying the creative side of the business: “I’ve never had a job where I could be so creative before and I love it! My vision is to build on what Linda and Adrian established and to introduce a creative twist.” This is demonstrated by the introduction of vintage furniture to display products and the lovely ‘arts and crafts’ style wallpapers as backdrops. She has kept much of the previous product range and extended it, so that there is something to suit all pockets. “We get things that we think people will like and things that you can’t get elsewhere – our customers are very discerning!” There is myth that village shops are always more expensive than national chain stores and Katharine is keen to dismiss this. “Our range of Liberty social stationery is priced less than the recommended retail price and some of our Nerf Gun range is cheaper than Argos” she explains. “And if we don’t stock what a customer wants, we will do our best to get it for them.” Another one of Katharine’s passions is the High Street. Here in Henfield we are extremely fortunate to still have a vibrant High Street where you can buy pretty much everything you could need. “The strapline on our advert is ‘why go to town when you can come to Stokes’, but the same is true of the High Street as a whole” laughed Katharine. “We have a fantastically diverse range of shops and we are all co-dependent on each other for bringing in new business to the village. Many West Sussex villages have become ‘toy’ villages, but we have so much going on in Henfield and there’s a great cross section of ages and life.” She also feels strongly about the community aspect of Henfield and is determined to keep it alive: “What’s lovely about the village is that people take care of each other. Older people with mobility problems know that if they wait outside a shop, staff will come out to serve them and they can be trusted to count out the money for them. How many places can you still do that?” Stokes help to promote the Pumpkin Competition or-

ganised by the Henfield Club and all the income from the Stokes notice board goes to charity, mainly the Henfield Youth Club.

Katharine has great plans for the future including the introduction of a loyalty card for customers and an extended range of sweets sold by weight with a gift bag option. She says that the feedback so far from customers has been positive about the changes she has made. “The saying goes that you can’t please all of the people all of the time” she laughed, “but we are trying!” Sarah Butler

GOING THE

EXTRA

MILE S

ome people, when given a challenge, achieve it and then put their feet up. Others, Like Tracey Prescott, achieve it and then start looking around for the next one. Having already completed the ‘Tough Mudder’ assault course challenge earlier this year as well the 60 mile British Heart Foundation night-ride in July, Tracey is now in training for the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 on Sunday 4 August.

Fundraising marathons last year” ad­mitted Adrian. “But once you realise how much they do for children suffering from cancer, you can’t help but want to help. It’s great that Tracey’s nephew is now in remission but for every child that gets better, there’s many more to take their place.” Adrian first got involved with 777 Fundraising when Rushfields Plant Centre fielded two teams to take part in the week of marathons as he explained: “I really enjoyed the whole experience of the 777 Fundraising marathon week. I needed a fitness goal this year so cycling 100 miles for charity seemed like a good idea. My motivation is to help sick children but I have the added benefit of getting fit at the same time!” Despite being an experienced charity challenge participant Tracey is feeling slightly apprehensive about this particular one: “I’m carrying an injury from football and I haven’t been able to do as much training as I would have liked, but that’s not going to stop me – I’ll be doing the entire route, even Box Hill!” And will Tracey and Adrian team be putting their collective feet-up after the gruelling 100 miles? No chance - they’ll be back on their bikes for the London to Brighton off-road ride in September! “After each event I always think ‘never again’,” laughs Tracey. “But I’m always up for a challenge and the 777 Fundraising team have got some great stuff planned for next year - watch this space!”

Tracey is part of the 777 fundraising team raising mon­ey for the CLIC Sargent charity that has been support­ing her nephew Ashton with his battle with leukemia. “My nephew is now in remission which is amazing, but we’re not going to stop raising money,” said Tracey. “It’s only when cancer affects you or someone close to you that you realise just how much charities are doing.” Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are hugely challenging for the whole family. CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

Henfield Gardens & Arts weekend brings in crowds

H

undreds of keen gardeners and artists flocked to Henfield on the second weekend in June for the annual Gardens and Arts event. Nearly 30 gardens were open to the public while 30 other venues displayed arts and crafts and held music events. At Red Oaks, the retirement home, the jazz and swing band RetroActive entertained the crowds on Saturday. And on Sunday, the band Brass Fusion were at the same location for a lively evening of music.

At The White Hart, The George Regis Jazz Band gave performances throughout the weekend. There was also music at Henfield Free Church, Moustows Manor and The Hooks. Bird watching, spinning and weaving displays, plant swapping, book signings and woodturning demonstrations were other highlights. Award-winning garden designer Sue McLaughlin, who was at the Moustows Manor garden she designed, said: “It was a brilliant weekend and we were lucky with the weather which brought the crowds in. People were able to enjoy leisurely walks round gardens in glorious sunshine.” Gyles Culver, landlord of The White Hart, said: “This has been one of the most successful weekends for years and we were rushed of our feet with visitors from far and wide. The great weather makes all the difference - and the efforts put in by all the Henfield gardeners and artists has really paid off.”

ith the cost of living increasing and the easy access to credit that people enjoyed in the last decade a distant memory, it’s no surprise that people are looking for ways to boost their spending power. It is an environment like this where the unscrupulous prey on the vulnerable and use people’s concerns to con them out of their savings. The latest I’ve come across is ‘pension release’. What could be wrong with something as positive sounding as ‘pension release’ or even ‘pension liberation’? Schemes that promise to give you access to your ‘hard earned pension’ that the big bad insurers won’t let you access are increasingly common. The literature states how their scheme allows you to access your pension before the standard minimum age of 55 and promises more than the maximum 25% lump sum you can usually take. There are many ways they promise to do this, perhaps involving a loan, moving the fund overseas or investing in a particular asset that utilises a ‘legal loophole’ to give you the access you require. Technically they are correct, in as much as you, the individual taking part in the pension liberation scheme, do not commit a criminal act. However, what they don’t tell you is the payments they make are ‘unauthorised payments’ and as such subject to a charge of 55%. Where you do end up committing a criminal act is if you fail to notify HMRC that you have taken an unauthorised payment. Then in addition to the unauthorised payment charge there can be further penalties applied by HMRC for failing to disclose. But how will you ever get caught? Quite simply when the companies offering these schemes are identified, the regulators ask insurers and pension providers for a list of any transfers to that company and they then track you down. In addition to the 55% charge you must pay HMRC,

PENSION RELEASE the company offering the scheme make a charge, typically in excess of 20%. All this leaves you with around a quarter of the true value of your pension fund and potentially, a criminal record. If you are offered such a scheme check the ‘adviser’ is authorised and regulated by the FCA. Don’t just take their word for it, check directly with the FCA, either by phone or on their website that they are actually authorised. As always, if something sounds too good to be true it probably is.

The Tender Process

S

ubmitting a tender is common practice for businesses supplying goods or services to the public sector. Becoming increasingly common is submitting a tender for business in the private sector.

ments, risk reduction, low maintenance, quality, reliability, previous satisfied customers etc. It is about helping to ease your client’s workload by relieving them of a burdensome contract. Information within your tender can be disclosed at any time in the future under the Freedom of Information Act. This gives anyone (including your competitors) the general right to see information held by public authorities - including the information in your tender. Therefore you should clearly indicate which information is commercially confidential. If the information is particularly sensitive, you might want to ask for a nondisclosure agreement to be part of any negotiations. Clients will expect you to summarise your work as a contractor, your past experience and credentials for this job, to explain how you will carry out the work, and how and when the client’s aims will be achieved. You should explain the benefits and value-for-money of your bid and detail when and how goods and services are to be delivered, providing a timetable. You must demonstrate your team’s skills, experience of similar work and their responsibilities if you were to win the contract. You should explain how you will manage the project and provide details of your pricing and any aftercare arrangements within the price. Be practical and identify potential problems without promising what is clearly impossible for you to deliver. Ensure your tender document matches the bid specification and answers all its questions. Summarise your bid and why it answers the client’s needs. Write this last, but put it at the beginning of your tender. Include a covering letter that responds to the bid invitation, summarises your main message and explains how the documents are organised. Keep sentences and paragraphs short, punchy and businesslike, use bullet points and headings to break up text. Decide on a consistent typeface, layout and type size and make sure everything is standardised. Read everything again and then get a colleague to read it - for meaning, typing mistakes and omissions. Use appendices for supporting additional information. Have a front cover with project title, date, name of the organisation requesting the tender, and that of your own business. Include a contents page, number paragraphs so material can be easily located and consider getting it bound at a print shop. Either hand-deliver personally or courier the required number of copies of the final tender document to ensure it arrives! Follow up with a courtesy telephone call to confirm safe receipt and to demonstrate your personal concern and involvement. If ultimately your bid fails, ensure you learn for next time by asking for feedback on your tender. Good luck!

On a very simplistic level, you expect to quote for a job or to explain in writing why you should be given the business. But more formal tenders often apply to bigger jobs or for supply contracts spread over time. Even if you do not win the work, writing a tender can clarify your aims, strengths and weaknesses. It raises your profile with the customer and helps you learn about customers’ needs. You can find out about upcoming contracts and tender opportunities by building contacts with potential customers and by looking at the local and national press, as well as the trade and professional publications in your business sector. Opportunities might arise through networking and picking up ‘intelligence’ from other businesses. Preparing tenders can help you to win big orders, but it can also be time-consuming, cost money and tie up valuable resources. You should obtain the bid documents and go through them line by line. Ensure that you can match the technical, skill and experience requirements. Evaluate how much it will cost, in £ and time, to prepare the bid. Ask yourself whether the work will fit in with your strategy and positioning of your business. Estimate the costs of fulfilling the contract and whether the return is sufficient. Assess how the contract would affect your other work, staffing and ability to take on other new business. You should also consider how important the potential customer is to your business. Is this a good potential client or one you do not want to offend by not tendering? Try to understand things from the client’s point of view. Many potential clients will be happy to chat things through on an informal basis before you decide to bid. Do not be afraid to ask for a face-to-face meeting or a telephone chat. You should always raise questions by phone or email if the tender documents are unclear for any reason. Once you have decided to tender, you should decide who collates the necessary information and does the research as well as agree on who writes and checks the bid presentation. Always focus on the client - talk about their needs and how you can solve their problems. When you speak about yourself, it is to prove you have the skills, experience and organisation to fulfil the client’s requirements. Think outside the box and come up with innovative ideas - from alternative ways of doing things to how to tackle possible worries For further information, contact: Paul Samrah, Partner, about future maintenance and staffing implications.
