12 News

The Fulking Fair is a lovely day out, with everything you could possibly wish for in a ‘proper’ old from the BN5 area fashioned fair. This year it has moved back to its original venue in the North Town Field, opposite the Shepherd and Dog. The pub have teamed up to help organise and host part of the Fair itself. You Local Interest can be assured of some fabulous food, traditional The Fulking Fair ales, local produce and great music alongside the regular stalls, sideshows and entertainment that the Fulking Fair is famous for across the county. Kid’s Stuff It was our enormous pleasure to meet a rather Davis Cup Legacy special young lady this month, Helen Hankins from Tennis Cowfold has set herself a series of challenges to raise money for a charity she’s passionate about Riding for the Disabled. Helen rides regularly with the Pycombe branch of RDA and set about raising Local Interest money with a series of tough personal challenges. Helen’s Challenge As we go to print, Helen is just completing her final tasks but there’s still time to show your support, we think she’s brilliant. Local History Please put a date in your diary for Thursday 30 The Battle of the Somme June, 8pm at Henfield War Memorial when those lost 100 years ago at the Battles of the Somme and Jutland will be remembered. On this date, 1916, the three South Downs Battalions lost 366 Index men in one battle, with a further 1,000 wounded of advertisers or captured. Mike Morgan, RBL Henfield & District Branch, has written about it on page 46. The bravery of these young men, many from Henfield, demands our remembrance. Please come to pay your respects.

We are delighted to announce that the The Shack has taken delivery of an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator), which is now installed and available for use should the need arise. Its location at the Shack adds to several other AED’s in Partridge Green and the surrounding area. It was formally handed over by local crime novelist Peter James on Bank Holiday Monday and at the handover Peter met with members of Partridge Green Area Response Team (PART) and Peter Holroyd whose life was saved by a similar defibrillator. Peter James supports many local charities and is the Honorary Patron for South Mid Sussex Community First Responders who helped with the placement of this AED. Steve Sole

HENFIELD PARISH COUNCIL NEWS I would like to make a plea to all dog owners in Henfield – please clean up after your dog and ensure that the resulting mess is disposed of appropriately, either in a dog bin or a litter bin, providing that it is bagged and tied. I was appalled recently to read on the BN5 Facebook page that a beautiful floral arrangement on a plot in the cemetery was covered in a large amount of dog faeces! Two things here: firstly, dogs must be on a lead at all times in the cemetery and secondly if the dog does make a mess, please clear it up. It is the dog owner’s responsibility and you are committing an offence if you do not clear this up. Whilst I’m on the subject there appears to be a growing trend for dog owners to clear up after their dog, bag and tie the mess and then hang it in the nearest tree. As the saying goes, ‘There’s no such thing as the Dog Poo fairy.’ Why should someone else clear up your mess? I know that I’m only referring to a small minority of dog owners and the huge majority are responsible owners that do clear up after their dog, but we need to increase this to 100% of dog owners being responsible and I would again urge everyone to do the right thing – bag it, tie it and dispose of it responsibly. Now on a lighter and more positive note, Henfield Parish Council is fortunate to employ a small team

TICKETS ON SALE FOR SGS SUMMER MUSICAL Sixty Steyning Grammar school students have been working hard on Ben Elton’s musical ‘We Will Rock You’ which they will perform on Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July. This is a vibrant and fast moving story which weaves in and out of an amazing collection of songs by Queen. The story of a group of rebel Bohemians struggling to find an individuality and freedom of expression resonates well with modern youngsters. Former pupil and co- director Alex Packer said: “We Will Rock You is full of big characters and crazy concepts and the students have really embraced the show with enthusiasm and passion. I can’t wait until we get to share it with an audience at the start of July.”

Tickets (£10 adult and £6 student) for this exciting musical are now on sale from the school offices at both Shooting Field and Church Street (call 01903 814555 or 01903 814786) and from the Steyning Bookshop. Suzanne Terrington

SEVEN STILES FUN RUN On Sunday 24 July the annual Henfield Joggers ‘Seven Stiles’ fun run will be held, in association with Henfield Leisure Centre and sponsored again by Coles Automotive. Last year around 450 adult runners and 60 Juniors took part in the event, which starts and finishes at Henfield Leisure Centre, with the oldest runner being 85 years old, the youngest just 4, so this is a truly open event! The 1-Mile event will start at 10.15am, and while optimised for our younger runners, there really is no age barrier, so it’s ideal for mums and dads to 1 4 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

JULY 2016 | News jog alongside their children, or run it as your own challenge! The main 4-mile event is at 11am and is entirely off road, via the Downslink and along the bank of the River Adur before returning to the Leisure Centre. This is where the Seven Stiles originally got its name, but as the years have gone by there are actually quite a few less than seven now - see how many you can count! All finishers in both events will receive a medal, and coffee and cake will be available at the Leisure Centre for those needing a ‘pick me up’ afterwards. More details can be found at www.henfieldjoggers.co.uk, from where entry forms can be downloaded, or picked up from Henfield Leisure Centre. Costs are £4 for Adults/£1 Juniors (Under 15) beforehand, and £5/£1 on the day. As last year we have a dedicated group of car parking marshals around Northcroft who will control the flow and direct traffic, as well as additional parking due to the kindness of the Medical Centre. We also encourage visitors to use the main High Street car parks that Sunday morning. Nonetheless we apologise in advance for any disruption that may occur, and we promise to keep this to an absolute minimum. Paul Crowe

THE DOVE NURSERY CELEBRATE THE QUEENS BIRTHDAY All the children at Dove Nursery took part in making a special card for the Queen’s ninetieth birthday. They decorated a butterfly on the front and each child made a flower for the inside and put their name on it. We then all walked to the post box to post our card meeting several people on the way the children proudly told them “We’re taking our card to the Queen!” The children found out that the card gets collected from the post box and goes to a sorting office and it would be put in a sack and sent to London on the train, where it would get sorted again and go to Buckingham Palace where the Queen lives. One child said “The postman will know if the Queen is in because the flag will be up on the flagpole on

top of the palace.” We had a cake on the day of the Queen’s birthday to celebrate at nursery and decorated the room with Union Flags. We were delighted when through the post this week we had an letter from Buckingham Palace with a card from the Queen and a letter, thanking us for the lovely card and best wishes. As you can imagine the children were very excited. We went to The Henfield Haven to perform some songs as if it was a concert for the Queen and tell the story of our card going to Buckingham Palace.

ST PETER’S ‘LAPTOP FOR EVERY CLASS’ CAMPAIGN The St Peter’s CE school PTA has a long tradition of working in partnership with the school and local community for the benefit of children attending the school and a key part of their role is to fundraise for ‘extras’ that fall outside of the school’s budget. Typically fundraising has been achieved via the tried and tested and often tasty methods of cake making competitions, ice cream sales, traditional fete’s as well as jumble sales and quiz nights. Excitingly though, in 2016 the PTA is thrilled to have hit a new milestone and taken its fundraising efforts online. Just as the sunshine was starting to break through the clouds in the early summer the St Peter’s PTA Wish List website was launched. 1 6 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

AN ANNOYANCE OF NEIGHBOURS Local resident Angela Lightburn has just published her book ‘An Annoyance of Neighbours’ and will be signing copies at the Cowfold Festival on Saturday 2 July. Angela has a degree in Psychology and a PhD in Applied Psychology so knows a thing or two about human behaviour. The book is a wry and sardonic peak at the neighbours from behind the metaphorical net curtains of life. Life is never dull when you have neighbours and most people will have trouble with them at some point in their lives. Whether they’re amazing or the bane of your life, everyone has a story about them. Have you ever had a disagreement with a neighbour? Have your neighbours ever woken you up shouting? Slamming doors? Revving a car? Do you avoid your neighbours because they’re irritating, boring or nosy? Do you sometimes wish you had normal neighbours? Or do your neighbours go out of their way to help you? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, then this book is for you!

JULY 2016 | News HENFIELD MUSEUM’S PLOUGH GIVEN A NEW LEASE OF LIFE The old plough permanently residing outside the Henfield Hall is a familiar sight, a little piece of farming history belonging to the Henfield museum to remind us of Henfield’s rural roots. The plough was originally donated to the museum in 1976 by Herbie Browning, it had been used by him in the market gardens at Kenton’s Farm, Woodmancote. It is a lovely example of a horse-drawn plough, used by so many Henfield ploughmen in the days before mechanised farming. Herbie passed away in 1985 and is buried at Woodmancote Church.

ANNA RAY ARTWORK NOW AT SUSSEX PRAIRIES We have just taken delivery of the amazing artwork created by Anna Ray where it will be staying for its summer vacation with us. Anna Ray was artist in residence for the RHS from 2015 -16. The artwork (which is a vast cube) was recently exhibited at RHS Chelsea Flower show and for those people who didn’t get a chance to see it, its arrival at Sussex Prairies gives everyone a new chance to see it in a garden landscape position with lots of light and a big space to appreciate its grandeur.

HIRE CHARGES FOR HENFIELD HALL Hire charges at The Henfield Hall have remained static for the past two years, but the Hall’s continuing finances make it necessary to introduce new rates from 1 July. The rise is small, generally between 3% - 7%, and the new charges continue to provide excellent value for money. Organisations that use the Hall regularly have the advantage of lower hire rates, and are also represented on the Hall Management Committee. All these groups are aware of the new rates which apply to all hall and room hires from 1 July, and full details are available from the Hall Steward, David Phillipson, on 01273 493365 or thehenfieldhall@btinternet.com Peter Bates

Over recent years and with the passing of time, the plough had become rather rusty. The museum committee thought they may ask if a local volunteer would be interested in refurbishing it. Great minds think alike – and before the request was put out to the local community, local resident and business owner Sean Preston from Southdowns Engineers Ltd approached the museum to volunteer to give the old plough a new lease of life. “My family worked with tools like this for many years, my grandfather came to Henfield many years ago and tilled the land at Blackstone Farm with similar horse-drawn equipment. I noticed it looking rather sad and offered to restore the old plough to its former glory.”

News | JULY 2016 months. On reflection it is difficult to report that much has changed. Patients are still complaining about aspects of efficiency and safety not being significantly improved. In November 2015 we were advised that Celesio/ Lloyds recognised the problems and would reorganise / refurbish the shop to improve dispensing through-put, and that the refurbishment would start in February 2016. At the time of going to print planning approval has not yet been obtained. On the initiative of our MP Nick Herbert a stakeholder meeting has now been held with Celesio/Lloyds on three occasions, to little effect. At the April meeting they made it clear that, on a point of principle, they would not use overtime working as a means of catching up with their backlog, even to meet the three-day target (after they get the repeat prescription approval from a doctor), that we have been told is their idea of satisfactory customer service. Note that is still so, despite the now bedded-in Electronic Prescription System. I will be raising this again with the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and our MP. This campaign needs more information from you, the LLOYDS CHEMIST UPDATE customers, as to your recent experiences with The campaign to establish a ‘fit for purpose’ Lloyds which I will use at the next stakeholders pharmaceutical supply facility through Lloyds meeting on 6 July and in my letter to the GPhC. Chemist in Henfield has now been running for eight Richard Searles - Boffey4@aol.com One of Sean’s engineers shot-blasted the plough to remove the rust and old paint, discovering that areas of it had been ‘mended’ using concrete which needed replacing and re-welding. They then re-painted in colours that were as near to original as possible - ‘Fordson Tractor Blue’ being one of the four colours. The job took a little longer than expected, but the results are well worth the effort. Weighing 300kg, the plough was gently lowered in to place outside the Museum at the beginning of June by one of Southdown’s crane lorries. Museum curator Alan Barwick said; “We were so pleased when Sean approached us and offered to restore the plough free of charge. Our plough is now looking very, very smart, so a big thank you to Sean and his team for doing such a great job on it.” Kevin Wright, on behalf of Henfield Parish Council, thanked Southdown Engineers. “We are very fortunate that many individuals and firms volunteer their time and expertise to help improve the quality of life in the village. Long may it continue.” Emma Osman

HENFIELD ARTHRITIS FUNDRAISERS. For 36 years Henfield has supported Arthritis Research through many Head Office changes of administration and name. Recent changes, beginning with the withdrawal of paper copies of the quarterly magazine, escalated until the present chair and treasurer were asked to sign a contract which, among other things, required that all member details be forwarded to Head Office. After lengthy discussions the present committee felt unable to endorse the acceptance of the contract and decided they were not prepared to continue fundraising for Arthritis Research UK but would rather put their effort into raising money for other organisations which support arthritis sufferers. Our ‘farewell’ event, was the Ploughman’s Lunch held in the Henfield Hall in May when we were fortunate to have fundraising marathon runner, Alexa Mallett to talk about her training and the London Marathon Run. As a memorial to her late Mum, an arthritis sufferer, Alexa and her family have worked closely together and through various events have raised, to date, a total of over £5,000. The lunch raised just under £500 which will be sent to Arthritis Research UK. In spite of setbacks the present committee is forging ahead and hopes to see our supporters old and new at the Charities Fair where we will have a craft stall and again at the Turkey and Tipple on Thursday 17 November.The committee intends to make every effort to increase awareness of the need for support for arthritis sufferers young and old.

I am a mobility scooter user and it has become my lifeline and prevented me from becoming housebound. I am 95 years old and live in Henfield village. Recently I counted 19 A-boards on the High Street which act as a hazard to pavement users, especially those like myself who are confined to mobility scooters. I have concerns that a serious accident could take place whereby a user could fall into the road and under oncoming traffic while trying to negotiate a narrow pavement encumbered by one of these advertising boards. I am keen to speak with others who may be encountering the same problems so that we can form a campaign to improve the situation, I estimate there are around 30 mobility scooter users in the village. If you are interested, please contact me on 01273 494208. John Davey

ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR There have been several reports to our BN5 Facebook page of broken glass and antisocial behaviour around the Skate Park area and news that the junior football teams were hindered in their training because of broken glass shards on the training pitches from smashed bottles. Some local people have reported unpleasant and antisocial behaviour and drug use by a very small group of young people. Henfield Parish Council have recently cleared the area of rubbish and issue a plea for users to respect the facility. Residents are asked to report any incidents to Sussex Police. We have been informed that due to cutbacks Sussex Police are unlikely to respond to isolated incidents but if they receive multiple reports then the area will be given more police attention. So, please do report by either calling 101 or emailing 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk It is clear that the vast majority of Skate Park users respect the area and behave responsibly. Editor

Kids tennis takes-off in Henfield


ast November Great Britain beat Belgium to win tennis’s Davis Cup by BNP Paribas (the equivalent of the World Cup for tennis) for the first time in 79 years! In celebration of this historic moment, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) created the Davis Cup Legacy – a project to inspire the next generation of children and their families to pick up a racket, and Henfield is a part of it. When the project was announced to give 10,000 new children the chance to learn to play tennis for free in 2016, local tennis coaches Jӧrg Schlüter and Keith Brown were quick to sign up and were two of the 1,000 legacy coaches selected to take

part in the programme. “Keith and I were delighted to be selected to take part in the Davis Cup legacy coaching programme” said Jӧrg. “Being able to introduce children to tennis and give them their own racket to keep is a wonderful initiative and one that we hope the LTA will repeat next year.” Since April this year they have run four courses and on each course, up to ten lucky children aged between 5 and 8 years (who have never played tennis before) received six free tennis coaching sessions and their very own tennis racket to keep paid for by the LTA.

3 4 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE


JULY 2016 | Kid’s stuff “We’re hoping that many of these children will become regular players and if they choose to join the club, they will receive discount on membership as well as on group coaching lessons for a whole term” explained Jӧrg. “We have a thriving junior membership here at Henfield Tennis Club. Tennis is such a social sport and great fun for children to play, as well as being a great way for them to keep fit.” The aim of the LTA is that the children they introduce to the sport may become future players and perhaps even one of them might end up being the next Davis Cup Captain! So far 32 children from the village have taken advantage of the LTA course and judging by the smiles on their faces, it looks like they have all had a fantastic time!

“My son Kieran has just completed a tennis course with Jӧrg this half term… Kieran very much enjoyed the course and now has a passion for tennis.” Romany Wheatland “My son Milo had a fantastic time at Tennis for Kids at Henfield Tennis Club as did I. Milo was saying ‘why are we not doing tennis today Daddy?’ after the course had ended and he was pleased to receive his tennis racket and certificate at the end. Well done Jörg, great time, more lessons I think!” Barney Ricket Sarah Butler

Inspired? For more information on kids tennis at Henfield Tennis Club contact Jӧrg Schlüter at headcoach@henfieldtennisclub. com or Keith Brown at assistantcoach@ henfieldtennisclub.com The Henfield Tennis Club offers family membership at from £147 for the year. Junior membership starts at just £21 per year (depending on age). For more information on club membership see www. henfieldtennisclub.com The Davis Cup Trophy is currently touring the UK - head down to the seafront in Worthing to the beautiful Steyne Gardens on 9 July where the Davis Cup Trophy will be on display all day. It will be a fantastic celebration of tennis with lots of different activities taking place for you to take part in, including short tennis and Mini Tennis.

Helen’s mammoth challenges!


ere at BN5 magazine we often get to meet some wonderful local people and hear about some fantastic charity challenges. But we were all completely blown away when we met the amazing Helen Hankins from Cowfold by her sheer determination and charm. Helen has severe disabilities and, together with the support of her Personal Assistants Mo Hussain and Laura Thompson, she has recently completed an incredible personal challenge to raise money for a local charity. This is her story: “I am a young lady with severe epilepsy and suffer from seizures day and night. I am raising money for Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA). I will be doing mammoth challenges throughout the week which will consist of a horse riding challenge, a

one-mile walk, a short circuit gym session, 14 laps of swimming and a community challenge around Horsham shops. All these will be a challenge in itself for me to complete due to my disabilities. I am passionate about horses and enjoy riding. Horse riding is a great opportunity to reap the significant therapeutic benefits for the disabled rider. The movement of the horse is transmitted through the rider’s body, helping them to relax, improve balance, posture and co-ordination. RDA also provides disabled riders opportunities to compete internationally and even to Paralympic standards. Mid Sussex RDA give nearly 1,254 rides each year, all without charging a penny. They have a fantastic team of dedicated volunteers who turn up, come rain or shine, to support the riders and assist with the lessons, and without these volunteer helpers;

none of the riding could take place. RDA depend on local fundraising from all the helpers and volunteers and all the money goes towards the horses and their maintenance. 100% of everything goes towards one thing, helping disabled riders. This charity is close to my heart as I love riding with a passion. The money raised will help keep RDA running and allow other people to enjoy riding and learn new skills. Please support this good cause and donate generously. Thank you so much.� Helen Hankins, Mo Hussain and Laura Thompson. At the time of going to print, Helen had very nearly completed all of her challenge which included community volunteering and physical challenges. If you would like to support her efforts to raise money for the RDA, please go online and donate generously at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Helen-Hankins1 Sarah Butler

Local history | JULY 2016 Photographs copyright © The Henfield Museum

The day Sussex died T

he 1st July 1916 saw the single worst day in the history of the British Army as the Battle of the Somme started. By sunset 57,470 men had become casualties, of which 19,240 were dead. Sussex’s worst day had, however, taken place 24 hours earlier. The Battle of the Somme was not an isolated event and whilst the main attack was launched on the 1st July the battle had really begun on the 24th June with the opening of the artillery bombardment which could be clearly heard on the south coast. Hiding such a large-scale offensive from the Germans was difficult and the British High Command wished to try and draw away as many defenders as possible by launching diversionary attacks elsewhere along the front. One of these was the battle at Ferme du Bois near Richebourg where men of the 39th Division were allocated the task of taking a nearby salient, a bulge in the line, known as the ‘Boar’s Head’ which was to be ‘bitten out’ to enable them to enter the German lines. The 39th Division had been formed in 1915 and consisted of a mixture of different regiments including three ‘pals’ battalions: 11th, 12th and 13th Royal Sussex Regiment (otherwise known as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd South Downs battalions). The men of the South Downs Battalions were given the task of leading the attack, unaware that their assault was a diversionary raid. Prior to the raid problems had already been experienced. The South Downs Battalions had been taken to a replica of the battlefield on which to train, but this lasted only a few days and did not include a hitherto unnoticed wide dyke that flowed through the middle of No Man’s Land. Lieutenant Colonel Grisewood, commanding the South Downs Battalions on receiving the

plans was concerned that an assault over largely unfamiliar ground with untried troops might result in disaster. He famously declared that “I am not sacrificing my men as cannon-fodder” and was promptly relieved of his duties. At 3.05am on the 30th June 1916 the South Downs Battalions went over the top. The result of the

JULY 2016 | Local history attack was a disaster. The first sense of alarm came The majority of those Sussex men who were killed are as they arrived opposite the Boar’s Head when buried near Richebourg. There is no memorial to the Officers observing through trench periscopes Battle of the Boar’s Head in Britain. Truly a day Sussex noticed the Germans had erected signboards on died. their parapets which read “When are you coming Mike Morgan, Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal over Tommy?” The bombardment prior to the Organiser for Henfield District Somme offensive had given the German’s notice of the raid and they were ready. As the South Downs Battalions advanced, the discovery of the Images copyright © The Royal British Legion hidden dyke meant that crossing this obstacle made men an easy target. Officers in the leading companies began to fall and it was left to NCO’s to take over. Those men who managed to clear No Man’s Land found themselves caught in the smoke screen that was supposed to blind the Germans and they were unable to see where they were going. As British soldiers reached the German lines brutal hand-to-hand fighting took place until the British were eventually driven out. The three South Downs Battalions suffered 366 killed and over 1,000 wounded or taken prisoner. Around 70% of those that died came from Sussex. Whilst the majority of men of the South Downs came from Brighton and Eastbourne, records show that 77 towns villages and parishes were affected by the casualties. Eight pairs of brothers died and the Pannell family from Worthing lost three sons that day. A Victoria Cross was awarded posthumously to Company Sergeant Nelson Carter who single-handed captured a German machine gun post and used the weapon to cover the retreat of his fellows before fleeing himself. He then repeatedly entered No Man’s Land to rescue wounded men. On his last trip he was shot and killed. Other awards for that day saw the South Downs Battalions receive 20 Military Medals, 8 Distinguished Conduct medals, four Military Crosses and a Distinguished Service Order.

Parental help W

ith rising property prices making it increasingly difficult for younger people to buy their own home, many parents are looking to help their adult children get on the property ladder. Knowing the tax implications of any financial support they provide is important to avoid surprises later down the line. In deciding whether your contribution should be in the form of a loan or a gift, it is worth considering the following: family circumstances; the stability of the relationship between the child and their partner; and the tax consequences. Gift - If the contribution is made as an outright gift by parents, it will be treated as a Potentially Exempt Transfer (PET) for Inheritance Tax (IHT) purposes. If both parents survive seven years after making the gift, there are no further tax implications. If, however, one parent does not survive seven years their share of the gift will count towards their taxable Estate. If the Estate is worth more than £325,000, the gift could be liable to IHT at 40%. Many families are concerned about the implications of the relationship between their child and his/her partner ending and part of their gift being ‘lost’ to their child’s ex. The legal ownership of the property will not usually reflect any parental contribution or informal loan toward the deposit. If the relationship does not last, some of the gift will ultimately benefit the child’s ex. To avoid this, it is recommended that a legal agreement is drafted to record the fact that the deposit has come from the parents of one party only and that, on separation or divorce, the ex has no claim to the deposit that has been gifted to their child.

If there is more than one child and parents advance money to only one, a clause can be inserted in their Wills to ensure parity on legacies - taking lifetime and death bequests into consideration. This should prevent a family dispute upon the death of parents. Loan - If a parent lends money, consideration needs to be given as to how the ownership of the property is structured and the consequences should the child die or separate from their partner whilst the loan remains outstanding. Property can be owned in one of two ways: either as ‘Joint Tenants’ - where if one owner dies, the other is left owning the property outright; or as ‘Tenants in Common’ – where the deceased’s share of the property passes in accordance with their Will. It is therefore recommended that legal advice is taken to ensure the funds are protected and can pass back to the parent if necessary. The repayment of the loan has no tax implications. However, if interest is charged that interest will be taxed as income of the lender. Where the loan remains outstanding, it will be included in the value of the lender’s Estate for IHT purposes. A sale of the property could give rise to a Capital Gain for the legal owners of the property, unless it is their only or main residence. An agreement could be drafted to repay any loan on the event of a disposal of the property. This would not have any tax consequences for either party, but any charge over the property would have to be agreed with any primary mortgage lender.
