Editor’s LETTER

As we print BN5 this month we’re recovering from a fantastic party weekend - Henfield celebrated Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in style. Take a look on page 32-35 for some great pictures of the celebrations. Congratulations to Arun Agrawal and the Parish Council for the resounding success of the several ‘all village’ events which took place. Olympic fever is arriving in Sussex. I met athlete Jade Nicholls, discus thrower and olympic hopeful, who trains at Broadbridge Heath. Jade is a great ambassador for her sport; energetic, inspiring and very grounded, we wish her well in her olympic aspirations and hope that she’ll have a place with Team GB in August. On a final note, after some very hard work from members of the Community Partnership the village was fortunate to achieve a significant grant for a community website late last year. All of us at BN5 were hoping to be closely involved with the project, populating the website with news and events listings as well as creating the business directory. Sadly for us our bid was rejected, so we won’t be directly involved. We had put the development of our own BN5 magazine website on hold during our discussions with the partnership, but we’re pleased to say these are up and running again so we’ll be bringing you an online version of BN5 very soon, created by a Henfield web developer. We wish the community partnership well with their website and hope it’s a success for the village. Best wishes

60 Many thanks to our editorial and photographic contributors this month; Paul Samrah, Zoe Standing, Mandy Shaw and Mike Beardall. BN5 magazine is printed by Evonprint in Small Dole on 100% FSC approved managed forests paper and is printed using vegetable-based inks.

Seagulls help lifesavers

Henfield

Brighton and Hove Albion supporters, the North West Sussex Seagulls, gave one of their community donations to HART - Henfield Area Response Team - last week. Chairman Andy Stonstreet, treasurer Ian Morris and secretary Mike Wilson handed over the cheque for £100 to HART chairman Dick Nye and his team on Tuesday. The money comes from the transport scheme the NW Sussex Seagulls run to take fans to the Amex Stadium. Money left over from tickets bought by passengers goes to good causes. “We are delighted to be able to help HART,” said Andy. “Many of our supporters come from this area and their lifesaving service is vital.”

Henfield FC have won the highly sought after ‘Best Administration Record’ trophy at the Horsham & District Youth Football League AGM. This spectacular trophy is awarded to the team whose administration process is deemed to be the best of all the teams within the league and takes into account the match returns, player administration, general correspondence and quick responses to league issues. Darren Angood, coach of Henfield FC U12’s and U14’s said, “This award is a huge deal for the football club and is a very prestigious trophy. It is testament to the hard work, dedication and organisation of one man, Paul Samrah, who does a huge amount for the club behind the scenes as well as taking on a wide variety of administrative tasks for each individual junior team as well as managing the hugely successful U14’s. “We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Paul who as well as the administration tasks, treasurer tasks and managerial tasks always tries to take time to support all of the Henfield junior sides throughout the season. My thanks and congratulations go to Paul for a thoroughly deserved award”.

Sussex Wellbeing

Wellbeing advisors from Horsham District Wellbeing will be offering a free drop in advice service in the Henfield area this summer to those who want to improve their health and wellbeing. The advice is part of a district wide programme and will be an informal chat about a variety of issues including ways of getting active, healthy eating, alcohol intake, giving up smoking and healthy weight. A free Body Mass Index check is also on offer as a measure of healthy weight. Final details on the sessions are yet to be confirmed. For more information on these sessions or the Horsham District Wellbeing Hub, please call and speak to one of the advisors on 01403 215111. Alternatively, email info@horshamdistrictwellbeing.org.uk or visit www.horshamdistrictwellbeing.org.uk and search for a topic.

JULY 2012 | News Shermanbury Jubilee weekend scrambled

A packed Parish Council meeting on 28 May heard from concerned residents about plans for a local landowner to hold a weekend of noisy events over the Jubilee weekend on fields next to the A281 in Shermanbury known as Fortgate Park. Over 30 people attended the meeting (including West Sussex County Councillor, Lionel Barnard and local resident and Horsham District Councillor, Jonathan Chowen), to voice their distress over the planned three day car boot sale and motocross rally due to start on Saturday 2 June 2012. Fortgate Park, formally farmland, has been used by Mid-Sussex Motocross as a venue for their races since 2011. The holding of car boot sales was added this year. The motocross and car boot sale, argue the residents, will be in breach of permitted development and should be cancelled. Landowners are entitled to 14 days a year for motorcycling racing and markets but each day that the land is set up for the event counts towards this allowance. The motocross track is reported to have been in existence for 15 months, far in excess of the permitted period. One nearby resident said, “The landowner held a charity race in 2010 which I was prepared to put up with if it was for a good cause but now it has become a regular commercial event. What started out as a few tracks in a field has become a fully fledged circuit”. “In spring 2011 track building began in earnest with humps and banks appearing across the flat grassland. Since then the owner has added to it before each meeting without taking any of the infrastructure down. This is a clear breach of permitted planning permission”. Another said, “The noise of the racing is intolerable and begins with PA announcements screeching across the open countryside at 8am and non-stop racing from 10am until 6pm. The bikes make a sound like a swarm of demented wasps. You can’t concentrate on anything and have to shut yourself up inside your house to get away from it. It spoils my whole weekend and I don’t go out in my garden at all”. Residents of Shermanbury Grange complained about the obstruction caused by drivers of huge motor homes and caravans taking the wrong turning and arriving outside their homes. “They seem to get lost following their sat nav’s and end up getting stuck at the end of our driveway. They arrive for the motocross on Friday and camp over the weekend, some don’t leave until Monday. We have our clear view of beautiful open countryside ruined by hundreds of vans, tents and cars and a shroud of dust”. “It will be chaos this weekend”, said one resident living on the A281, “We have enough problems from traffic speeding along our road add to that 450 cars, vans and motor homes trying to use just one gateway at the same time and there is a recipe for disaster. The owner of the land does not even live in Shermanbury”. Noise complaints have also be received by Horsham District Council and West Grinstead Parish Council from residents living in the Partridge Green and Bines Green areas. Attendees had nothing but praise for both Shermanbury Parish Council and Horsham District Council. “They have listened to our concerns and have assured

us they are acting quickly to enforce planning breaches. We understand Horsham District Council will be issuing a Temporary Stop Notice for the car boot sale and motocross events before the Jubilee weekend”. A Temporary Stop Notice is issued by Local Planning Authorities when they consider that there has been a breach of planning control and it is necessary to safeguard the amenity of the area. The order has immediate effect and all activities detailed must stop. This could mean if organisers go ahead with the three day events they, the landowner and anyone attending could be liable for a fine of up to £20,000.

night bike riders raise £1,500 for British Heart Foundation A team of six cyclists from The White Hart raised £1,500 for the British Heart Foundation with a night-time bike ride from London to Brighton. Team captain Gyles Culver, landlord of the pub, said: “It was a real challenge and bike lights don’t give a great deal of illumination at night.” The team left Clapham at 2am and arrived in Brighton after 8am. “It was a great result and we are all proud of our achievement,” said Gyles.

News | JULY 2012 Hot Dogs eating...

arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

for

Some of us like a bit of a heat wave, and some of us flag and flounder as the temperature goes up. Dogs are no different except that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tap us on the shoulder and tell us that they are too hot! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve yet to see a sweltering dog turn-up the air-conditioning or ask for an ice-cream on a hot summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. My dog is definitely partial to ice-cream, but tends to resort to theft rather than request... For this reason, when the weather is hot we have to be even more vigilant with our canine companions. At the veterinary surgery we see several cases of heatstroke every year where dogs have been seriously ill. Most people will be aware that shutting a dog in car in summer is very dangerous, but dogs can easily overheat just from overdoing it in the heat of the day. Whether they are hot on the scent of the ice-cream trail, chasing a ball or just on a long walk, overexertion can lead to hyperthermia (over-heating). We can avoid this problem by being aware of the signs and dealing with them early â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most of it is common sense. If your dog is panting excessively (more than on a nor-

mal walk), has very red gums and seems reluctant or unable to move, these could be the early signs of hyperthermia. The first thing to do is give them access to a bowl of cold water. Secondly, cool them down â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the hosepipe is a good first option (as long as there is no ban!), as are cold towels, fans or ice packs. Ice packs in the groin or armpit will be most effective. You should see that the panting reduces within a few minutes and gum colour returns to normal. If the signs persist, then prompt veterinary attention is required â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we can administer intravenous fluids and drugs to reduce the temperature.

DIAMOND Jubilee hanging basket post Henfield residents were at the unveiling of a Diamond Jubilee memorial hanging basket post in the village centre on Saturday 2 June. Senior p a r i s h councillor Mike Morgan said the post would be a lasting memory of a historic event. The post was designed and made by village blacksmith Alan Miles. “It is important that we mark these historic occasions and for many of us The Queen has been there throughout our lives,” said Mike. “Henfield is proud to mark this event with a lasting memorial.” The village has already planted a Diamond Jubilee oak tree on the Tanyard.

Your fire station needsyou Henfield Fire Station has been an important part of Village life since the early 1900’s. The current Station provides a Fire Appliance which responds to approximately 100 calls per year, and is crewed by Retained Firefighters. These paid Firefighters live and / or work in the local area, committing between 50 and 168 hours per week to provide operational cover and the ability to respond within minutes to the Station - day or night - should they be alerted for an incident. With primary employment ranging from florist to butcher, and pest controller to gardener they dedicate their time to providing a professional and rapid response to the local community. The role of a Firefighter is varied, with recent incidents including: road traffic collision; house fire; automatic fire alarm activation; property flooding; car fire; and assistance with dangerous structures due to storm conditions. Training and development for the varied incidents that can be encountered is an important part of the role. The Henfield Fire Appliance can also respond to larger incidents in West Sussex – and further – to support other Stations. Crew take opportunities to inform and educate local residents of all ages with talks and visits to Station, including a highly enjoyable recent visit from the local Rainbows. The Station is currently looking for similarly dedicated people to join them – to train as Firefighters and offer a first class service to their local community. Please call 01243 642134 for general information, Retained Liaison Officer Maisie Rudkin – 07734 732080 or the local Crew will be more than happy to help.

Henfield FC U12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s took part in the Steyning Strikers Tournament on Saturday 20 May determined to go one better than the previous tournament a fortnight earlier when they narrowly lost in the final. The tournament held by local rivals Steyning saw Henfield placed in a difficult group and the early matches against Seagulls and Storrington were cagey affairs which both ended goalless. Henfield really found form when they thumped Holmbury 5-0 and subsequently beat the Steyning â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side by the same scoreline to earn a place in the semi-finals. With Steyning â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; their opponents and school â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bragging rightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the line Henfield went about their task in a ruthless manner, winning the game comfortably to progress to the final against Storrington. A hard fought final saw Henfield take yet another tournament title, their third tournament win in four attempts, with Harvey Barrie scoring the all-important goal to seal a memorable day for the U12â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who won without conceding a single goal. Manager, Donna Angood, praised the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determination and desire by commenting â&#x20AC;&#x153;the progress made by this side in such a short space of time is quite phenomenalâ&#x20AC;?. Coach, Darren Angood, put the teams success down to a strong bond between the players, their attention to detail in training and the fitness levels which are an integral part of the training regime they undertake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a testament to the high regard that this team is now held in and what we are trying to build here that players are approaching us asking to join for next seasonâ&#x20AC;?.

Rebekah Seager cycled from Suffolk to Aberyswyth over four days at the end of May to raise money for the RNLI. She left the RNLI lifeboat station in Aldeburgh on Sunday 27 May and arrived at the Borth lifeboat station on Wednesday 30 May after nearly 400 miles of cycling. “Days one and two were easy compared to the hills in Wales - on the last day we climbed nearly 8,000 feet before we made our final descent which was truly amazing. The scenery was fantastic throughout the trip, especially in Wales - all the towns and villages were putting out their bunting for the jubilee so it was a great trip” said Rebekah. “The support crew that helped us throughout with water and lunch breaks and all the amazing evening meals were a godsend. Not to mention the motorcycles that were whizzing up and down checking we were OK and stopping traffic when we needed it.” Rebekah was cycling with the ‘Bobby on a bike’ team and altogether they have raised over £12,000. “It was the hardest and best thing I have ever done in my life” concluded Rebekah, “and I’m really proud of everyone!” To donate, please visit www.justgiving.com/bobbyonabike2012

Recycling update

Better Tomorrows is a Community Interest Company that is working with the County Council and all the District and Borough Councils in West Sussex to improve the quality of recycling. Unfortunately, con-

tamination levels tend to increase during the summer months and appear to be associated with the increase in household barbecues and picnics. There is a concern that contamination levels will increase even further this year due to the celebrations surrounding the Olympics, the Euros and the Jubilee. If you are planning a celebration please visit: www.recycleforwestsussex.org/latest_news/summertime_and_the_ recycling_is_easy for some recycling tips and posters that can be downloaded.

Dove Jubilee celebrations The children at Dove Nursery had a party to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee. They made an invitation to send to the Queen and Prince Philip to come to their teaparty, and all walked through the woods to the post box to post their card. The Cricket Pavilion was transformed with lots of bunting and balloons, all the children were invited and some of the parents came along as well. The party started with a lovely sing-song in the garden accompanied with the guitar, followed by a magnificent tea-party, on set up on a long banqueting table and at each end to the childrens surprise was the Queen and Prince Philip! The children had a lovely feast of sandwiches, chopped salad and fruit, ice creams, mini jubilee cupcakes and a special cake decorated with the Union Jack which was put in front of the Queen to cut. Afterwards the children played games in the garden followed by a traditional game of pass the parcel. Each child had made a crown to wear, and took home Jubilee party cups filled with goodies. The children and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work.

News | JULY 2012 Acorn Antiques the Musical New club for Henfield As a life-long Victoria Wood fan with very fond memories of the original sketch show, it was with great anticipation that I took my seat for the final night of Henfield Theatre Company’s production of Acorn Antiques. Happily, I wasn’t disappointed. One of the most obvious and enjoyable strengths of the show was the music. The show opened with the most excellent orchestra with musical direction by Dave Barnett into a full cast number set on the infamous Manchesterford High Street. The songs were confidently delivered, from the prominent solo talents of Miss Babs played by Sharona Key-Barrie to the ensemble numbers. The only frustration was discrepancy of volume between the orchestra and the solo singing. The inimitable Mrs Overall was fabulous. Ann Atkins has obviously studied Julie Walters’ original character well. I felt that we were in good hands with the whole cast through this charming interpretation of the show, strong delivery, good use of space, some funny improvised moments and a good cast rapport. The audience certainly got into the spirit of the show, applauding and guffawing at the more obvious double entendres (and perhaps consequently missing some of Wood’s more subtle puns and visual gags) – Henfield had been given permission to laugh at dirty jokes! Overall (geddit?) it was a hugely enjoyable experience and great credit to the whole company. I look forward to the next extravaganza. Long live the macaroon! Kirsty Martin

Henfield FC entered a number of teams in differing age groups at the Steyning Strikers Tournament on the weekend of 19th/20th May. The U7’s and U8’s performed superbly and each came away with a trophy with one of the U8’s teams unbeaten throughout the day. The U9’s took centre stage in the afternoon and won their tournament with some very strong performances throughout. The following day it was Henfield U12’s who took centre stage winning their tournament before the U14’s emulated the success of the U9’s and U12’s to win in their age group. A fantastic weekend for Henfield playing against many of their local rivals which shows the incredible work carried out by a dedicated team of managers, coaches and parents that make our small village such a huge force in local football.

HENFIELD HEAT BASKETBALL Henfield Heat under 11’s basketball team celebrated the end of a great second season with a party and awards presentation at The Bull. The young team made the U11 Sussex League Play Offs which was a great achievement considering they are still relatively new. The team also had something else to celebrate, with news of funding being awarded to them from the Sport England council. The money will go a long way to support the teams further development, kit, and coaching. Charlotte and John Curran have worked hard to build the team up, provide the coaching and get the backing of Sport England. Henfield Heat are still looking for new players - boys and girls from year 3 (7yrs) to year 7(11yrs) - to join them from September, training at Henfield Leisure Centre. Players can just join in the training sessions even if they are unable to play at matches, but Heat would like to enter two teams in the Sussex League next season - Under 11’s and Under 12’s. Any volunteers to help with coaching, refereeing, table officials etc. are also very welcome! Keep an eye on their website for contact details if you know someone who would like to join and for details of future matches if you want to come and support your local team - www.henfieldheat.co.uk

Henfield Fc U14’s at the double Henfield FC U14’s celebrated a phenomenal season which saw them crowned league champions and also reach the semi-finals of the cup by winning the Wick Dynamos Tournament. The following week they travelled to Steyning to compete against local rivals Steyning Strikers (the ‘A’ League Champions), Upper Beeding, Hurstpierpoint and a strong Ferring team. With many of the players participating going to the same school this tournament was always going to be hotly contested with the winning team able to claim the ultimate ‘bragging rights’. Henfield started the tournament strongly and despatched Ferring, Upper Beeding and Hurst Colts in the group stages whilst drawing against a very strong Steyning Strikers team. The semi-final saw Henfield glide past their counterparts in the orange shirts before facing a strong Steyn-

ing side determined to win their own tournament and equally determined to prevent the trophy going to Henfield. A closely fought game saw the score remain goalless and so began a period of extra time. With a large crowd cheering on Henfield, the Upper Beeding and Hurst teams stayed on to cheer the boys in white, the game was heading towards penalties when Henry Bovey, the Henfield goalkeeper, launched an almighty kick upfield that sailed over the Steyning keeper and into the net. The final whistle sounded shortly after and the euphoric celebrations showed what this tournament victory, above all others, meant to the team. Manager, Paul Samrah, took time to praise both Henfield teams when he said, “to have two teams reach the semi-finals, and one go on to win, in an extremely hard fought tournament with many strong teams shows what an incredible achievement this was and further emphasises what a terrific team this Henfield side are having achieved so much this season”.

BN5 Birds Did you know that in the last 13 years 149 species of birds have been identified in the parish of Henfield? Most of these are well known and common to our area but some are rare such as the golden oriole, golden plover and nightjar. And some are new to us such as little egrets, buzzards and red kites. We are very lucky in Henfield. Because of the variety of habitats – gardens, the river, farmland, the brooks, woodland – we have a large variety of birds. Migrating birds like to use ‘corridors’ and our disused railway line makes a perfect south/north highway. This summer we once again will be able to enjoy our migrants that have flown all the way from Africa such as chiffchaff, blackcap, whitethroat and reed warbler. Unfortunately, because of climate change, habitat loss and other factors, some migrants have become rarer in the parish – swallows, house martins and swifts no longer wheel around in the summer skies in the numbers they used to. Henfield Birdwatch members have been surveying the parish’s birds since 1999 and we have over 140,000 records. We can use these records to identify the most important bird habitats in the parish and try to protect them. We have an interesting web-site www.henfieldbirdwatch.co.uk.Members receive quarterly newsletters about local happenings, can enjoy talks and walks and be involved in our busy interactive e-mail group where you can ask questions or tell us what you’ve seen. You don’t have to know a lot about birds – just love them as I do. Debbie Colgate

JULY 2012 | News

Poynings family has right royal Jubilee knees-up Poynings couple Barry and Dawn Leppard took part in their biggest family get-together for years during the Jubilee weekend with a party at Saddlescombe Farm. The family party, which marked the ruby wedding anniversary of Barry and Janet Ware - formerly of Poynings, now in Buxted, East Sussex - featured plenty of Royal memorabilia and family memories.â&#x20AC;?It was brilliant to have such a great family celebration during the Royal weekend,â&#x20AC;? said Barry, a retired builder.

Friends of St Giles Church â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Country Fayre & Scarecrow Competition

The Fayre is back on Bank Holiday Monday 27 August and we are planning an even better event with more displays than ever before! As always it is designed to entertain children and families, although all are welcome. All the old favourites are there such as the blood hounds, Morris Dancing, fun dog show, Punch & Judy, polelathes, fair organ, tractor rides, grand raffle, spinners & weavers, welly-throwing competition, large range of side shows, ferrets, Bee Keepers, tug-of-war, Fly Fishermans Guild and more. In addition this year there will be a wattle making demonstration, terrier racing and the Animal School (a stand for children to show how to hold and draw animals). In the background there will be a Clay Pigeon Shoot and members of the public can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;have a goâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (although under strict and qualified supervision). The Scarecrow Competition is open to all but especially to the young and there are six classes: Up to 6 years-old, 7-10 year olds, 11-14 year olds, Adult, Family and Group entries. Each scarecrow should between 90 cms and 180 cms high and must be free-standing (albeit on a pole to stick in the ground). The competition will be judged by the Revd Alastair Cutting and his wife Kay. All entries should be brought to the Fayre ground between 12 noon and 2pm when they will be judged. When you arrive you will be given a label so that your scarecrow can be put into the right class. There is no overall theme â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just a jolly, realistic scarecrow and you can choose any character you like or just make one up as you go along. The Fayre ground opens at 12 noon and entry to all children under 16 will be free and entry charge remains the same for everyone else at ÂŁ3.50. The usual lunch tent, BBQ, ice creams, tea and beer tents will be there. We look forward to welcoming you to a really good day out. Thanks to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generous support over recent years the church boasts a new Horsham stone roof and funds are now being raised so that the church can be re-wired and have new lighting.

Blackstone residents, along with their friends and family, brought a picnic then danced the evening away to The Ashdown Ceilidh Band. The event kicked off with a Jazz Trio who wandered around as people tucked into their fare before lining up in the Barn to dance. Some children

were in fancy dress and a topical quiz tested us all on our knowledge of the Royal family. The Henfield & District Self Help Group held an indoor â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Street Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for around 70 people in the Henfield Hall. A musical afternoon of entertainment was provided by

DAVE LANCASTER

H

aving spent many years sailing the oceans and visiting far-off countries Dave Lancaster is very well travelled. But for the last 60 years Dave has been a part of Henfield village life and for him, there is no better place to call home.

in those days,” said Dave “so I had to cycle there and back every day until I was moved onto the number 17 Brighton to Horsham route.” However Dave continued to cycle for pleasure every Sunday morning, whatever the weather, with his good friend Joe Blower for many years. Dave then went into partnership with a friend as a window cleaner for 18 years, but in 1975 he decided to join the Post Office where he worked as a postman until his retirement in 1997. “The Post Office was the best 22 years of my life” said Dave. “My patch was the Nep Town area and there wasn’t the same pressure on postmen back then,” he continued. “We had time to stop for a chat and do little odd jobs for people. I even used to stop for a coffee with friends at Rayner Court part-way through my round!” The Nep Town community appreciated Dave so much that when he retired they threw him a surprise party in the garden at Pendrells. Dave certainly hasn’t put his feet up in retirement. He is an active fundraiser for the St Barnabas Hospice, volunteers at the Free Church weekly Coffee Shop and has spent over seven years volunteering at Southlands Hospital. Until recently he also cleaned the windows of various shops on the High Street. He enjoys taking advantage of his free senior citizen bus pass and still rides round on his scooter. When Betty died ten years ago Dave felt that he didn’t want to stay in the village. “I went to stay with one of my sons in Colchester,” he said “but after a week I missed the friendliness of Henfield so I came back.” Friends and family recently organised a surprise 80th birthday party for Dave. “It was a wonderful party and I’d really like to thank everyone who was involved and who came along” said Dave. “I’m happy to finish my time here in Henfield – it’s where I belong.”

Dave was born in 1932 and grew up in Somerset and he spent the war years collecting bits of shrapnel and generally having a whale of a time. “For us kids it wasn’t a war, it was one big playground,” he reminisced. “Life was so very different for kids in those days.” After leaving school his father wanted him to join the RAF, but Dave had other ideas. In 1948 he joined the Royal Navy where he spent 14 years in the Far East and he saw active service in both the Korean War and the Suez crisis. It was on one of his home leave visits that Dave first visited Henfield. “My mother had recently moved to Bolney and I went to visit her,” said Dave. “There was not much going on in Bolney back then, so I used to come over to Henfield which was much more lively.” It was on one of these visits that Dave met his wifeto-be, Elizabeth (known as Betty), a local girl. “When I was away I used to write to Betty every day, sometimes as many as 16 pages, and I carried her photo everywhere,” smiled Dave. “It was then that I realised I wanted to settle down into village life.” Dave and Betty were married in December 1955 at St Peter’s Church and the first of their four children was born in December 1956 whilst Dave was on tour. “I missed the birth of my first child,” said Dave “but I wanted to be at the birth of my other children. I asked Dr Squires if he could have a word with the matron of the maternity hospital in Brighton, but she was a bit of a dragon and wouldn’t let men in the delivery room!” After leaving the Royal Navy in 1957 Dave spent two years with the South Down Bus Company as a conductor based in Haywards Heath. “I didn’t have a car Sarah Butler

THE THURSDAY CIRCLE

T

he Henfield Thursday Circle takes place once a month at the Evangelical Free Church in its comfortable function hall. A group of friendly retired people enjoy tea, homemade cake, a good chat and a lively and interesting talk from a guest speaker.

On the afternoon I joined them, invited by Thursday Circle organisers Fred and Peggy McComas, they were enjoying a talk by Mervyn Weeks from a homeless mission based in Brighton called Basics Bank. Mervyn is a good example of the type of interesting and thought provoking speaker that the Thursday Circle members enjoy listening to. Amongst others, they have welcomed speakers from Canine Partners, Rushfields, Henfield Fire Station, Waterwise, our local PCSO and the Camelia Botnar Foundation. The speakers are always interesting and the cake is always good – a very amenable way to spend an afternoon! Mervyn talked passionately about the work of the Basics Bank. An organisation affiliated with the Evangelical Churches, the scheme offers living basics to homeless people who are being rehoused or those on very low incomes who need some extra support. Mervyn has years of experience working with the homeless and those forgotten and ignored in our society, he had stories to tell that were in turn heartbreaking and uplifting. The mission is based at Preston Circus in Brighton and feeds homeless people, as well as giving them emotional support and a listening ear which is completely independent of the police or social services. The mission also helps alcohol and substance abusers and those who have left ‘the system’, be it social care or prison. This tireless task can help very vulnerable people to get back on their feet. The Basics Bank is an offshoot of the mission. A ‘shop’ with shelves of food and useful household objects which can be gathered together as a home starter pack for those who are leaving the streets behind. These simple gifts

can mean the difference between success and failure. If you give gifts at Harvest Festival they can often end up at the Basics Bank. Otherwise, donations come from local churches who give their unwavering support to the scheme. The Evangelical Free Church in Henfield is one such church which gives generously, so it was interesting for the Thursday Circle and churchgoers alike to see where their donations ended up. Fred and Peggy explain more about their involvement with the group. “The Thursday Circle is part of the Free Church outreach, providing an enjoyable afternoon for some 20 or so people each month,” said Peggy. “It’s been running for 15 years now and was started by our previous pastor, Graham Edwards. It’s certainly not restricted to churchgoers, in fact probably only a handful are. We’re pleased to welcome anyone who would like to join us.” I chatted over the very delicious homemade cake with three visitors, Nancy, Jean and Vera. They wholeheartedly agreed that the Thursday Circle was a lovely date in the diary to look forward to. They commented that it was good to get out and enjoy company, especially those that lived alone. The afternoon passed in a flash and our hosts were most welcoming, the gentle sound of lively chatter and the clink of teacups filled the room. Not only did I enjoy some interesting company I experienced a glimpse into a very different life, that of a missionary homeless worker in our nearest city. Next month it will be something entirely different, and that is the beauty of the Thursday Circle, there is always something new to learn.

The Thursday Circle meet on the 1st Thursday of the month at the Evangelical Free Hall. For information please call Peggy or Fred on 01273 493472, or just drop in, you will be warmly welcomed. Emma Osman

TOPICAL HR MATTERS

s everyone knows, the largest sporting event ever in the UK takes place from 27 July to 12 September. Although there is a three week gap between the Olympic Games and the Paralympics, the effects are expected to last throughout this period. According to recent research, 40% of businesses are expecting problems with staff attendance due to people taking time off or having their journeys to work affected by travel congestion. Whilst most events will be in and around London, there will be knock-on effects if you are travelling or delivering in London during this period of time. If your business delivers to London, consider whether it is possible to switch deliveries to night time hours – do your contracts allow for such flexibility and will your staff be willing to accept such changes? Transport for London has already estimated that delays at some London stations such as Waterloo and London Bridge could be as much as 60 minutes at peak times – and that’s just to get to a platform. Check www.getaheadofthegames.com for up to date travel and disruption information. You should also expect a high level of requests for time-off as employees want to attend events or watch them on television. Check your holiday booking procedures are up to date and: • Encourage people to put in their holiday requests as early as possible so you can plan; • Treat everyone equally - some requests will be from employees just wanting to get away; • Look at your contracts for anything regarding timeoff for voluntary work, as those allocated as volunteers need to give 10 days of their time during the Games. You can refuse requests but need to be able to justify such refusals; • Start consulting with employees now if you want to impose holiday restrictions during this period. If you are going to allow people to watch events on their computer or on television screens at work, remind them of your Computer Use policies so they

understand what is acceptable and how you would deal with excessive usage. Do remember, however, that some employees will have no interest in sport and may feel left out or disadvantaged if special events such as team lunches are held. Will you be taking advantage of the relaxation of Sunday Trading rules for eight consecutive Sundays starting on 22 July? Have you thought about how you will manage your employees if you want them to work longer hours on Sundays? This year has been a relatively quiet year for changes in Employment Law, with the most significant new law introduced from 6 April; increasing the qualifying period for unfair dismissal claims from one year to two years. Whilst this change may reduce claims for unfair dismissal, I would still advise caution when dismissing employees who have not attained the qualifying period, as they could look to use discrimination or whistle blowing - which does not need any minimum qualifying period of service - to make a claim. Other changes this year are of a more technical nature around the administration of Employment Tribunals to reduce the cost burden. The Government is consulting on a number of key issues which are expected to lead to change in 2013. Under consideration is the introduction of employment tribunal fees for claimants; the development of ‘protected conversations’, which will allow employers to have frank discussions with employees on issues such as performance and retirement plans without these being used as evidence against the employer in any subsequent employment tribunal proceedings; and proposals to simplify the law on TUPE regulations. The other main change for businesses is Pension auto-enrolment legislation, which comes into force for larger organisations by the end of this year, and for others on a series of dates over the next few years. It is the first time employers have been required by law to contribute to pensions for workers that are eligible. A full list of when this will affect your business can be found at www.thepensionregulator.gov.uk and runs from 1 October through to 1 April 2017. Pension enrolment will automatically be triggered by

JULY 2012 | Business jobholders who work, or usually work, in the UK, are between 22 years of age and state pension age, and earn more than £8,105 a year (during 2012/13). Do note that this applies to ‘workers’ as well as your employees, so potentially including casual and contract workers. The amount of the contribution is based on a percentage of the worker’s earnings. Over time, the Government has said that the minimum contribution will increase to at least 8% (in total) with a minimum of 3% coming from the employer. Employers cannot opt out of their obligations to contribute, although an individual can opt out if they wish. Companies will be required to enrol all eligible workers, advise them that you are doing so, and telling them of their right to opt out after enrolment if they wish to do so. Finally, the Bribery Act 2011 has not gone away! The Serious Fraud Office has reported that they are investigating a significant number of cases, many of which will be going to trial in 2012. They have also disclosed they are receiving more than 500 calls a month to their ‘Whistleblower hotline’ and have had over 200 hits on the Whistleblower section of their website. Do make sure you are enforcing your Anti-Bribery policies and are keeping accurate records. www.kingstonsmith.co.uk Paul Samrah, Partner, Kingston Smith LLP T:01737 781546 E:psamrah@kingstonsmith.co.uk
