Editor’s LETTER

Happy Jubilee weekend everyone! We hope you have a smashing time and enjoy some of the great events happening in the village, see page 30 for your guide to the weekend. We’d love to print your pictures and reports on the day so please email me editor@bn5magazine.co.uk with your images, we will print them in July issue. We were pleased to be invited to Henfield Youth Club, a real village institution, to find out what they get up to and why the club is so important in the village. You will be aware that all County funding for the club has been cut and they are at the mercy of voluntary contributions. This is a desperately sad situation and hard to believe that youth work is not seen as a priority at this level of local government. In rural areas like Henfield keeping young people engaged and occupied should be top of the list. Luckily our Parish Council has much more foresight and has agreed to show as much financial support as they can, but there is not a bottomless pit - the club will need our support. Debbie Slaughter, who runs the Youth Club, won a BN5 community award when we celebrated our 50th edition. She is an inspiring lady who commands the love and respect of the young people who attend the club. Without her work they would not have the opportunities and care that they now receive. She is valued greatly in Henfield, as are the youth workers at the club. Enjoy June, keep in touch with your news and events for the summer. Best wishes

News | JUNE 2012 Exciting news at Hawthorn Vets, but business as usual!

After purchasing Hawthorn Veterinary Surgery in Partridge Green in 1993, and the surgery in Henfield one year later; Malcolm and Jennie Wild have decided to hand over the reins to Jonathan and Annelise Underwood. The practice will continue to be a family-run business with another husband and wife team at the helm. Jonathan and Annelise are delighted to be getting involved with a practice that has such a great client relationship and is also actively involved with local people and events. They are looking forward to working with both Malcolm and Jennie and the rest of the experienced Hawthorn Veterinary team to maintain the high reputation of the practice and also enhance the facilities and services that are offered. Jonathan grew up and was educated locally near Woodmancote and is especially pleased to be returning to an area that both he and Annelise know well. Both Jonathan and Annelise graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2002. They initially worked in mixed practice in Suffolk for two years and after travelling to Australia for a year, have spent the past six years working in Berkshire prior to the move to Sussex. Jonathan has a specific interest in orthopaedic surgery while Annelise enjoys treating exotic pets which compliments the skills of the existing team at Hawthorn. They are very much looking forward to meeting the clients of Hawthorn Veterinary Surgeries and their pets.

Knepp Castle open gardens

Knepp Castle will be opening its gardens to the public for the first time on Sunday 17 June (11am to 5pm) after four years of re-planning and re-planting. Visitors will be able to walk through all the gardens, the park and the old pleasure grounds (please note that the castle will not be open). Teas and cakes will also be available. The money raised from the open day will go to two local good causes: St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church Shipley and Shipley CofE Primary School. For more information email enquiries@ knepp.co.uk or visit www.knepp.co.uk

The Trefoil Guild

Did you know in Henfield we have a thriving Trefoil Guild? We are ladies who have been Brownies, Guides or Rangers, but wish to carry on the spirit of guiding. We meet monthly at the Guide headquarters in Staples Barn on the third Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm. Winter or summer, there is always a varied programme of events, for example summer BBQ, craft evenings, interesting talks, theatre outings and exchange evenings to other Guilds. One of our aims is to support Rainbows, Brownies and the Guides in the village. We also support the senior Guides who represent the UK on trips abroad. We welcome anyone who wishes to continue with Guiding and have made their Promise, as your Guiding days are never over. Please come and join us or contact our Secretary, Mary on 492351.

JUNE 2012 | News HORTONGolfClubcouldclose after equipment thefts

Horton Golf Club in Henfield could close after all its course machinery was stolen in two night-time raids. Two weeks ago thieves entered the club grounds via Henfield Business Park and stole their Massey Ferguson tractor. Then on the night of Bank Holiday Sunday, raiders entered the club’s grounds via Oreham Common (finding the Business Park locked) and stole nearly every item of equipment that the club had in their shed. Each piece of equipment was dragged or carried right across the course and across Oreham Common. If you saw anything suspicious or you have been offered items in the last few weeks that match those listed below, please contact the club on 01273 493993 or the police. Chairman Martin Tooth said: “With very limited funds, the loss of so much equipment - and the real possibility that Horsham District Council may charge us rates this year - we face the fact that the club could be forced to close.

The hard work of volunteers, managers, referees and parent helpers was recognised as crucial to the success of the club.

Redevelopment of Shell Henfield Service Station

Residents living near Shell Henfield Service Station recently received a letter informing them of the redevelopment of the site. This will include the removal and replacement of old underground fuel storage tanks, fuel dispenser replacement, canopy replacement, and demolition and replacement of the site shop. Site works are expected to last seven months and the schedule will include a planned pause in the works of approximately two months following an initial stage of demolition. The service station will then be re-built and opened for business. To remove the old underground fuel tanks located beneath the Access Road (Golden Square) to the north of the shop and petrol forecourt, the contractors will need to divert the road around the western and southern part of the site. These works are expected to last two to three weeks. The contractors anticipate that during excavation of tanks, odorous soils may be excavated which may be noticed in the general area around the site and apologise for this in advance. If residents have any queries or concerns about the redevelopment works they are asked to contact Dylan Raubenheimer on 020 8688 6808 during office hours and the Out of Hours Messaging Service number on 07938 902739 at other times.

The Great Henfield Easter Egg Hunt

This year on Easter Sunday the Easter Bunny had been particularly busy. Mid-morning children and parents gathered at Henfield Youth Club to collect their baskets and then they set off, with children running and parents desperately trying to keep up.

Back at the Youth Club the Community Church Henfield served drinks and hot-cross buns for the returning families and everyone joined together for an informal café style Easter celebration. Great fun was had by all and the Great Henfield Easter egg hunt has definitely made its mark on the Henfield calendar for the future, so watch out for large bunnies in 2013!

Auditions for ‘Ragged Trousered Philanthropists’ Henfield Theatre Company will be holding open auditions for their Autumn production of The regged Trousered Philanthropist which will run from 18 to 20 October 2012. Based on the novel by Robert Tresswell, this play is the semi-autobiographical story of a group of painters and decorators during the first decade of the 20th century. Set in their political views, the workers see the world through the lenses of their traditional political views and never imagine that they can influence their surroundings. The workers are joined by Frank Owen, a socialist, who attempts to explain how socialism works and the impact it could have on their lives. The bosses, who are the councillors and town leaders, are stereotypes and allow for some fun in portraying them. There are fantastic character parts for 10 men and 2 women and open auditions will take place in the Garden Suite. Henfield Hall on 26 June at 7.30pm and 1 July at 2.30pm. New members are welcome. For more information and audition pieces, please contact Sylvie Ashthorpe on sylvieashthorpe@tiscali.co.uk or 01273 494849.

JUBILEE GARDEN FOR HENFIELD

Everyone likes to enjoy Henfield looking its best and for several years now, a small group of volunteers from Henfield Garden Club have been helping make Henfield a brighter place. The Club currently looks after the rose arch and rose bushes at the memorial wall in the cemetery as well as the Indian Bean tree (Catalpa Bignonioides), on Barclays Bank forecourt The Club’s latest project is to ‘adopt’ a small area of neglected land in the south west corner of the Henfield Hall/ Budgens car park. With the agreement of Horsham District Council (who own the land) and our Parish Council’s support, you will soon notice a marked improvement to the area. At the end of last year we trimmed the existing tree and removed the long neglected and overgrown shrubs. More recently we dug out many of the old roots and weeds. For the final stage of the project we will plant red, white and blue bedding plants in time to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Horsham District Council has granted the Club a ten year licence to care for the area and we are currently awaiting approval from them for a much needed retaining wall to be built around the bed. If approval is given we will replace the bedding plants with a more permanent planting scheme in the Autumn. When the project is completed we hope everyone will enjoy the plants and take pride and pleasure in this renamed plot ‘The Jubilee Garden’ for years to come.

At its annual meeting Council re-elected Ray Osgood as Chairman for the forthcoming year. Digby Stephenson was re-elected as Vice Chairman. West Sussex County Council has withdrawn the fortnightly mobile waste service which operated in the Library car park as it was not as well supported as hoped and the increased cost of the service could no longer be justified. The fortnightly Horsham Council kerbside green waste collection is not affected and will continue unaltered. The ‘gobbler’ service for general waste will continue in the Library car park on a quarterly basis. The next dates are 10 June, 16 September, 9 December and 10 March 2013. A new quarterly electrical and electronic equipment waste service will be introduced but dates are not yet available. Henfield Parish Council was unsuccessful in its recent bid for funding towards replacing the Chessbrook Green Play Area but is making a further bid to an alternative source for such funding. Whilst this will inevitably delay the development of a new play area, Henfield Parish Council with the support of Saxon Weald is committed to improving the outdoor children’s play facilities in this part of Henfield. Council was extremely disappointed to find that, after finally succeeding in arranging for a floral display on Wantley roundabout, within 24 hours of the display appearing it was vandalised. Council is grateful to the company organising the display sponsorship for their speedy action in repairing the damage. From time to time Henfield suffers vandalism, more recently to floral displays and playground equipment. If you see this occurring please call 999 immediately.

ÂŁ1,300 raised for Henfield charities The Cat and Canary has raised ÂŁ1,300 to be shared by the villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth Club and the Self Help Group. Raised in one evening, it is the latest in a series of pub fundraisers that have seen more that ÂŁ6,000 raised for charities including Cancer Research, St. Barnabas Hospice, Chestnut Tree House and HART (Henfield Area Response Team). John Mitchell, chairman of Henfield Self Help Group (which helps the elderly), said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jackie and her customers have done a brilliant job and we cannot thank them enough.â&#x20AC;? Debbie Slaughter, who runs Henfield Youth Club, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t survive without this vital money.â&#x20AC;? The fundraising evening featured entertainer Denny Austin and was organised in the memory of the late Marie Bantock, a member of Henfield Self Help Group.

Local bodies were united in speaking out against the proposals to build 102 dwellings on the land east of Manor Close at the planning meeting in Horsham on 17 April. Ray Osgood from Henfield Parish Council, Dr Tony Jackson from the Community Partnership and Carol Eastwood from Henfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Preservation Society (HOPS) all spoke against the planning application. District Councillors Sheila Matthews and Brian Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell put forward cogent arguments against the plans and questioned why HDC had not been able to hear the application in a timely way. The developer has lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate because Horsham District Council (HDC) did not hear the application within its 13 week timeframe. HDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision on whether or not to contest the appeal was deferred until they can clarify matters with West Sussex County Council. The application is then expected to return to the Planning Committee for them to determine whether or not to contest the appeal. It is normal for the Planning Inspectorate to give three monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; notice of the date for a Public Inquiry. To-date no advice of a date has been received. HOPS will now take this opportunity to become a formal body which will enable it to speak out on behalf of concerned villagers and provide representation where appropriate.

HENFIELD YOUTH CLUB

T

he Henfield Youth Club has been at the heart of the village for over 50 years providing a safe place for young people to meet, play, hang-out, chat and develop life skills. We went along to a Senior Session on a Thursday to find out more.

The Youth Club has been in its current purpose built building on the Kings Field at the north of the village since 2005. It’s a lovely large, bright and airy building with plenty of space for different activities. The Club has three pool tables, a large hall for team games, a computer room where the children can play games and a quiet room. Debbie Slaughter who has run the Club for 20 years is clearly passionate about her work. “The Club is all about providing a safe place to meet where the needs of the members are met as and when they arise” she said. “We help them be who they want to be.” As well as providing a safe place to meet friends, the Club is about trying new activities, hobbies and experiences and the members are very much involved in deciding and planning the content. Recent sessions have included a photography workshop, a ‘Come dine with me’ evening, recording a CD of Christmas songs, creating a time capsule, and a ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here evening (complete with real bugs to eat!). For the recent National Poetry Week a professional Rapper came in and everyone created their own raps. This was such a popular session (described by one member as “inspirational”), that the Rapper has been invited back again!

When asked why they come to Youth Club, the response from members was overwhelming positive: “There’s not much to do in the village for us kids and this gives us something to do.” “I get to catch up with my friends.” “We do a lot of team building stuff and we learn a lot of skills.” “I get to chill out and share things with friends and the leaders.” All the members are enthusiastic about learning new skills and are open to new opportunities. They are keen to put on a Christmas pantomime this year (together with the Junior members) and would welcome someone to come and help them develop their acting skills. On a more serious note, the Youth Lead-

JUNE 2012 | Local interest ers also provide information to members on important social issues such as smoking, drug and alcohol awareness, healthy relationships and internet / social networking safety. They also provide advice and support for the older members (such as how to create a CV, open a bank account, apply for a driving licence or fill out job applications) and offer training in first aid and baby-sitting. The Club also organise residential trips and these are considered the highlight of the year. For some children it will be their only holiday of the year and for others it will be the first time they have been away from home. And it’s not just about having fun - whilst away the children are responsible for budgeting, planning menus, buying food and cooking all their own meals. They also learn how to get a long and work as a team. Claire, one of the Youth Leaders said: “All the kids are pretty close to one another, but it’s obvious after we get back from a residential trip that they are so much more of a team – it’s great to see!” Trust is an important factor in the relationship between the members and Youth Leaders. Debbie said: “We have ground rules and in 20 years I’ve never had to ban anyone, although a few years ago I did suspend a couple of members for two weeks. They came back after the two weeks was up with an apology and a bouquet of flowers!” The trust is a two way thing: “The kids are often a lot more open with us leaders than they are with their parents as they know that it won’t go any further” said Gemma. “Obviously if it is a really serious issue we will encourage them to talk to their parents and if we feel we need to involve outside support, we will discuss this with the individual first.” All the Youth Club staff and members have been overwhelmed by the support the Club has received since West Sussex County Council announced the cut in funding. Debbie said: “Henfield Parish Council has been extremely supportive of the Club and has given us a grant to enable us to stay open for another 12 months for which we are extremely grateful. We’ve also received lots of donations from private individuals, organisations and charities in the village which is fantastic.” The Club is open three evenings

a week during term time: Senior sessions (11 years plus) are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 7.30 to 9.30pm; Junior sessions (8 – 11 years) are held on Tuesdays from 6 to 7.30pm. The first session is free and after that there is a charge of £1 per session. The Youth Club building is available to hire for parties and other events at a very competitive rates. Please email henfieldyouthclub@tiscali.co.uk for more information. One member perfectly summed up how a lot of people in the village feel about the Club: “Henfield without a youth club would be like fish without chips.” Here’s to the next 50 years.

St. Peter’s Garden of Memories

A

t the beginning of May St Peters Primary School opened a very special garden in memory of Mrs Anne Thompson who had a long and close association with the school.

Ann Thompson was a parent at the school for many years (all four of her children attended St Peters) and after training to be a teacher she taught at the school for over ten years before she passed away in August 2011. The idea for the garden came from the children at the school who wanted something to remember her by. The School Council came up with the idea of a garden and pupils from years five and six designed and developed it with help from Tom Griffiths (otherwise known as Gardener Tom). Tom, who is a close friend of Ann’s family, said: “I heard that the school wanted to build a garden in memory of Mrs Thompson and I wanted to do something to help. I contacted the school to offer my services and came in to talk to the children. I was amazed at the children’s designing talent – I hardly had to help them at all.” The pupils contacted Rushfields Plant Centre and Swains Farm Shop to ask for assistance in furnishing the garden and were overwhelmed by their generosity. Rushfields gave the pupils vouchers to spend on garden furniture and plants and

01273 494002

Swains donated plants. The school PTA also donated some money to help with the purchase of materials. The garden was constructed by Gardener Tom with the help of the school caretaker Bob Tucknott. The highlight of the garden is a beautiful mosaic designed and made by the school’s Art Council. The mosaic, which was unveiled by Ann’s sister, Jane Wolstencroft, features a candle, a rainbow, two doves flying up to heaven, a tree, a cross and children playing. The garden path is in the form of a cross to represent the church school and is bordered by lavender plants. The garden also contains a plaque dedicated to Anne Thompson which was unveiled by her husband Ian Thompson and blessed by the Reverend Alistair Cutting. Headteacher Nick Phillips said: “The garden is a very fitting tribute to Ann Thompson. The children will be able to go into the garden to sit, think, reflect and talk quietly to one another or themselves. For those who knew Mrs Thompson they can use their time in the garden to think of her”. The school would like to thank Gardener Tom, Rushfields Plant Centre, Swains Farm Shop, Mr Buss and the PTA for their very generous donations which made the creation of the garden possible.

Friendly for supremacy of the Kingsfield

T

he following extract is taken from Darren Angood’s match report of the first of three friendly matches between the Henfield Football Club Under 8’s and the Under 9’s.

to be the catalyst the U9’s required to take control of the field of dreams and forge ahead. When Rufus Crawley found Morgan Standing he tore down the left like a gazelle outpacing a lioness before crossing for Ben Cooke to fire home. As half-time approached the U9’s further enhanced their lead when Joshua Cridland’s shot was well saved by Oscar Jago-Lewis but JJ Angood was well placed to thump home the rebound. The half-time period saw the U9’s restricted to fluids as their battle plan was adjusted and the U8’s listen attentively to instructions as they scrambled to grab as many Jaffa Cakes as possible. The U8’s took to the pitch for the second half invigorated by their snacks and subsequently conceded another goal, scored by Cameron King as they struggled to digest their sweet tasting snacks. Resolute defending from Marley Heath and Dylan Williams kept the white tide at bay and when the U8’s devoured delicacies were digested fully they fought back strongly with Jamie Cooksley and Joe Ayling-Rouse both forcing Otto Schlueter to make vital saves. With legs becoming weary the U8’s succumbed to the match-hardened followers of Field Marshal Standing’s cause when Cameron King and Morgan Standing combined to find JJ Angood who fired a powerful half-volley beyond Oscar Jago-Lewis. The contest, all but over in scoreline, did not extinguish the enthusiasm of the Jaffa Cake munchers and Joshua Cridland and Rufus Crawley both had to be alert to prevent an U8 break. The final whistle sounded shortly after to end an enthralling encounter in which both teams could leave the arena with a huge amount of satisfaction and pride in their performances, and they could see if there were any Jaffa Cakes left!

The titanic tussle for Kingsfield supremacy took place upon the battlefield of the mini-soccer pitch on 21 April. On one side the cash rich U8’s led into battle by General’s Smith and Heath with the huge financial backing of the now legendary ‘Footie Café’ and upon the other the U9’s led by Field Marshal (and all round horticulturalist) Standing, a team ever prepared to carry the Henfield banner into battle and prepared to fight to the very end. And so the action began with vocal support from parents urging the young warriors from both sides on. The resilience of the U8’s frustrated their older opponents during the early stages with the defensive duo of Dylan Williams and Toby Samrah repelling any attack and when the line was breached Oscar Jago-Lewis was well placed to save. The deadlock was finally broken when Cameron King and JJ Angood combined to find Joshua Cridland who fired the ball into the net. That goal spurred the U8’s into action and Jamie Cooksley and Marley Heath both went close before Toby Samrah’s clearance found Joe Ayling-Rouse whose pass sliced open the U9’s rearguard and found Dan Brewer who fired an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net. The intermittent cries of ‘come on Thunder’ from Camp Standing had the bewildered U8 followers staring at the blue skies above wondering what this tribal chant meant, was it a call for some inclement weather to dampen the U8’s spirits? No, just the team name for the U9’s. The game continued beneath the bright blue canvas and the U9’s determined to restore their lead once again found stubborn resistance in the form of Oscar Jago-Lewis whose glue-covered gloves continued to grip anything that came his way. At the other end only a brave Otto Schlueter save prevented Jamie Cooksley putting General’s Smith and Heath into rapturous delirium. It was to prove Darren Angood

SOLAR SYSTEMS - are they still worth it?

ince late 2011 you have probably read negative things about Solar Photovoltaic (or solar PV) due to government cutting the Feed in Tariffs (FITS). However, since January 2012 the material prices for Solar PV have dropped dramatically and it is still very affordable - the average system on a house (normally a 1.5 to 4kw system) costs between £4,000 and £9,000.

The main benefits of Solar PV systems are as follows: you can generate your own clean electricity and in doing so save money by reducing the amount of mains electricity you buy; you can earn income from the electricity you generate and earn even more by selling any surplus electricity into the national grid; and improved technology means that Solar PV systems are virtually maintenance free and the panels have a minimum of 25 years performance warranty.

How much do they cost and how much can I save?

The income from the electricity you generate from the FIT together with the money you save from using the generated electricity would normally pay for the cost of the installation in 8-12 years (income is paid to you quarterly by a cheque from your electricity supplier). At the moment the FIT is 25 years and is tax free and index linked to the RPI so every year the rate increases. So for example, the cost of purchasing and installing a 4kw system (including VAT and scaffold) is £8,800.00. From the FIT this would earn £1,079 per annum so the system would pay for itself in 8.15 years. As the tariff is for 25 years, following your payback for the system you would have 16.85 years of £1,079.00 per annum which equals £18,181.15 tax free. However, the figure would actually be higher as the FIT rises each year and electricity prices increase. So over the 25 year period you are looking at a return of at least 8.3 to 12.5%. So solar PV is still a very good investment, but there is a limited time to take advantage of these returns. The FIT is a three year programme which ends on 31 March 2013, although there is talk that tariffs will be reduced on 1 July 2012 this year.

How does Solar PV work?

generate electricity - they can even generate some electricity on a cloudy day! All you need is daylight to generate power through the use of photovoltaic cells within roof mounted collectors (modules). The collectors are simple to install in an ‘on roof’,’ in roof’ or ‘flat roof’ arrangement, both landscape and portrait. Electricity requirements vary depending on the size of your house and how energy-efficient the building and appliances are. A Solar PV system will supply some or all of your power, reducing your use of mains electricity and reducing your electricity bills. The electricity produced can be used to run any appliance powered by electricity. The solar panels create DC electricity and an inverter will convert this to AC electricity that can be used as power.

How much electricity will Solar PV generate?

A Solar PV system produces approximately 750 kW/ hs per year per kW installed. So a basic 1kW system will generate around 750 kW/hs per year, a 3kW system will generate around 1,693kW/hrs per year and a 5kW system will generate around 4500 kW/hs. To put this into perspective, the average household usage is 10kW/hrs per day.

Will Solar PV supply all of my electricity?

The average household consumption of electricity is 3,000 kW/hs per year. So on average, our smallest 1kW system could supply nearly 25% of your electricity over the course of the year. Depending on your consumption rates, it may be possible to supply more by carefully reducing your energy use.

Do I need planning permission for Solar PV?

No planning permission is needed for a Solar PV system unless you live in a listed building or conservation area.

Do Solar PV panels work on cloudy days?

Solar PV systems can still work depending on the type of solar panel and the density of the cloud. In moderate cloud density, solar energy can still be collected and used. In heavy density cloud, the functionality of Solar PV systems is greatly decreased.

Solar PV works by utilizing energy from the sun to Andy Taylor, AJ Taylor Electrical Contractors Ltd

The Story of a Henfield Gardener

C

haracters like David ‘Joe’ Blower are stalwarts of our local community. Given time and a cup of tea or a pint or two, they will tell stories of local people and local history which will enchant and entertain us. This is living history – not the dusty facts, figures and dates to be found in books or on Wikapaedia – but knowledge, memories and real life experiences of life in a close-knit and ever changing community.

at Beechcroft Landscapes, their gardening business named after the house in Broomfield Road. Joe’s daughter Annette followed in 1978. His love of nature and natural affinity with all things green, alongside a deeply practical nature, has meant he has never been short of work locally. Joe remembers the village before the new estates were built and when the high street looked very different than it does now. He remembers buying sweets at Mrs Skilton’s sweetshop next to the Clock House, the Dairy Cottages on the corner of Furner’s Lane and Mrs Jeffs drawing the milk for customers at 2d a pint. He remembers taking coupons to the shops in the 1950s because goods were still rationed. Joe’s route back from the school on the Common was through the apple orchards behind Mussens (now One Stop convenience store). During the autumn it was an impossible temptation not to indulge in a bit of scrumping - more than once he had to make a swift getaway, followed by the orchard owner with a stick! Joe remembers helping to prepare a garden in Mill Drive for a swimming pool. As a boy he played in the old house, once lived in by William Borrer, and knew the garden stood where the house was. Digging down to construct the base of the swimming pool they discovered the cellar walls – the pool now sits snugly within the cellar. Joe does not look back on earlier times with rose-tinted spectacles and knows that change is inevitable. He says: “New people often come here to live and say ‘keep it like a village’. However, people were saying that 50 years ago when the estates they live on were just cornfields!” Joe has many memories of the village, too many to fit on this page but they are all of interesting local characters and buildings you will recognise. Thank you Joe for taking the time to share some of them with me.

I was invited by Richard, Joe’s son, to ‘have a chat’ with his dad, who had some local stories to tell. Many Henfield people will be familiar with Joe, who grew up in West End Lane and has been a gardener for as long as he can remember. Salt of the earth and hard working, Joe loves his family and his village. Joe’s grandfather bought Westlands Farm in West End Lane with 10 acres as a market garden and Joe’s memories are of walking to school from the farm come rain or shine. He was a pupil at the school on the Common but at one point, when numbers outstripped classroom places, Joe and three other boys were moved to, of all places, the Girls’ School! As a nine year-old Joe found this the most challenging part of his education to date! When he was a little older he caught the bus for 6d a day to Cowfold School and then later continued to the Grammar school in Steyning, catching the train each morning. When Joe was just 14 he became very ill with a virus, which resulted in him losing all his hair permanently. His father died when he was just 17 leaving Joe, his sister Margaret and younger brother Malcolm. His mother later re-married, a man with nine children, so the family became large and life was not easy for them. The family moved to the rambling Beechcroft in Broomfield Road. Joe quickly found work as a gardener working for Tylers who looked after the grounds at Gatwick Airport. Enjoying working outside he then went on to start his own local gardening business, marrying Heather in 1974. His son Richard was born, the year of the Emma Osman drought, in 1976. Richard now works alongside Joe

Business | JUNE 2012

UNDERSTANDING ACCOUNTS

Y

our business accounts reflect the financial performance of your enterprise. In these difficult times, they are a valuable management tool in deciding strategy and setting budgetary targets. If you are baffled by the figures and all the jargon, the following explanations may help clear the fog!

Accounting Reference Date or Balance Sheet Date - Accounts are prepared annually to a specific date – this is called the Accounting Reference Date (ARD) or Balance Sheet Date (BSD). Businesses can choose their Accounting Reference Date – typically this will be a month end. Accruals basis of accounting and accounts preparation - This method records income as it is earned and expenditure as it is incurred, regardless of whether the monies have been received or paid by the ARD. Income is matched with the expenditure to which it relates, for example, wages and salaries matched with income generated. This basis gives a fair reflection of financial performance – the accounts will show monies due (debtors) and monies owing (creditors). This compares with the cash basis, which only records monies received/paid and ignores liabilities or monies due. Audited accounts - Accounts are said to have been audited when an independent examination of the financial statements and underlying records has been carried out and an opinion given. In most cases, the audit will be focussed on the requirement for accounts to show a ‘true and fair view’. The auditor’s opinion is provided in the form of an Audit Report, addressed to the company’s shareholders or Partners (in the case of a Partnership). Most private limited companies having an annual turnover of less than £5.6m are exempt from the audit requirement. There is no statutory requirement for Partnership accounts to be audited - it is up to the Partners to decide and for the Partnership Agreement to reflect their decision. An accountant’s report - This report states that the accounts have been prepared by a firm of accountants on the basis of information supplied. It explicitly states that no audit has been performed. Profit and loss account - Sometimes referred to as an Income & Expenditure Account, this summarises all the income due to, less all the expenses incurred by, the business. Rather like the hands of a clock, it

sweeps up all the activities of the business for the given period (normally 12 months). The result is a profit or a loss (losses are usually shown in brackets). Profit - This is the total profit that the business has made during the accounting period – in the case of a Partnership to be shared between the partners and set off against their drawings (see below). Appropriation of profits - Partnership accounts are usually supplemented by a Note to the Accounts indicating the profit allocation. The first tranche of profit might be to allocate specific sources of income to certain partners; the residual balance is then shared in the partners’ profit sharing ratios (PSRs). Drawings - These are monies taken by Partners from the business for personal use and are paid out on account of each partner’s profit share. Balance Sheet - Rather like a snapshot picture, the Balance Sheet shows the net worth of the business at a particular date (the BSD) and it comprises fixed and current assets less its liabilities. Tangible Fixed Assets - These are assets which have a relatively long life (more than one year) and are relatively fixed (in size, shape or form); they are permanent in nature and used by the business in its operation. Examples include: freehold/leasehold land and buildings, furniture, fixtures, fittings and equipment (including computers), and motor vehicles. These assets are generally relatively expensive and will be used over long periods of time. As the life of these assets extends over many accounting periods, it is necessary for your accountant to allocate the cost of the asset to current and future operations on some rational basis. This allocation is called ‘Providing for Depreciation’ and within the Profit and Loss Account, an element of depreciation will be charged. Fixed assets are usually shown at original cost less accumulated depreciation, equalling Net Book Value. Current assets - Current assets include cash and any kind of asset that can be turned into cash or consumed reasonably soon. They comprise stock, debtors (customers owing monies for goods or services rendered), prepayments (for example insurance premiums or rentals paid during the current period; although the benefit, or service provided, extends into the following accounting period), and cash at bank and in hand. Creditors: Amounts falling due within one year - These are liabilities or debts owing at the year-end that will

6 4 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

sales@bn5magazine.co.uk


JUNE 2012 | Business be paid within one year (for example, suppliers’ bills). Included under this description would be salaries and wages earned by employees as at the year-end but not yet paid, and accruals for items yet to be invoiced, for example accountancy fees for preparing the year’s financial statements. Capital Accounts (Partnerships only) - Partners’ Capital Accounts reflects the amount of money paid into the business by the Partners, usually in accordance with the Partnership Agreement. This is usually fixed and rarely varies. Current Accounts (Partnerships only) - Partners’ Current Accounts reflect each Partner’s ‘pot’ containing the Partner’s profit share less drawings taken during the year. The resultant (positive) balance is the amount due to each Partner at the Balance Sheet Date. Liquidity - Finances are said to be ‘liquid’ when current debts (due to be paid within one year) can be covered by current assets. If current debts exceed current assets, and the business cannot pay its bills when requested, the business has liquidity problems. This may be caused by poor cash flow management, salaries/drawings too high to be sustainable, or the purchase of a costly fixed asset, such as a building or equipment.
