The new arrival at Swains Farm Shop in May caused plenty of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ when we posted pictures on our website (www.bn5magazine. co.uk) and Facebook sites. Gorgeous George the very royal foal from Swains just had to be our cover model this month, especially as Swains is celebrating their 30th year this month. Don’t miss their Fun Day on Saturday 14 June, see our article on page 26 for more details. It’s also the very popular Gardens and Arts weekend this month, this quintessential Henfield event has become incredibly popular and is a great way for the village to show off it’s wonderful gardens, arts and music. Don’t miss this lovely (hopefully sunny) weekend on 14th & 15th June. As you know, we are great supporters of HART (Henfield Area Response Team). They started around the same time as BN5 magazine and a feature on them was one of our very first articles. We’ve watched them grow in numbers and in knowledge and reputation as one of the finest responder teams in the country, much admired and imitated. Some of the team are climbing three mountains in 24 hours as part of their Three Peaks Challenge, please read more on page 22 and give them your support. Enjoy a busy month of Henfield events. To keep up to date please use our website www.bn5magazine. co.uk. There is an extensive directory of local businesses with a search function (where you’ll discover truly local businesses) and all our up to the minute news and diary listings, many of which just won’t fit into BN5!

Copy Deadline Copy deadline for any advertisement or editorial submission for the July issue of BN5 magazine is Friday 6 June.

PROMS IN THE PARK a cup of tea in an unusual place. Then to show that Brownies have fun, one Tuesday evening we did the Conga around the high street and every aisle of Budgens, finishing off by dancing around Redoaks and entertaining the residents with some traditional Brownie songs. One resident got an extra surprise when we all sang Happy Birthday to him. To finish off the badge we swung from the trees in May when we went to Go Ape! If you would like to come and join us to help provide these opportunities for the Brownies then we would love to hear from you as we are desperate for some more help as both our Tawny Owl and Barn Owl have retired in the past few months.

Henfield’s annual ‘Proms in the Park’ concert will take place in the gardens of Red Oaks at 6pm on Sunday 29 June.

The first half of the concert will feature brass band favourites and songs from the shows. The second half is a traditional ‘Last Night of the Proms’; a chance to wave your flags and sing fervently, and includes Jerusalem, Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory, and Sussex by the Sea. Admission is £5 for adults (in support of local charities) and children under 18 go free. Bring your own picnic, bubbly, blanket and chairs. Nigel Stevens

RNLI HENFIELD BRANCH APRIL HENFIELD VOICES ART EXHIBITION Thank you everybody who supported our 25th Annual Art Exhibition in the Henfield Hall, whether by buying a piece of original artwork or spending time admiring the work on show. We were pleased with the success of the event. We still have a few bills outstanding, but it appears that we raised close to £500. In addition, we raised the profile of the RNLI in a very positive way. The quality of the work on display was, again, of an incredibly high standard and it was very satisfying to hear the many complimentary comments made the visitors. Our next fundraiser will be the RNLI Flag Day in Henfield and Steyning on Saturday 27 September. If you could spare an hour to help the RNLI save lives at sea, please email: jagos@logs.uk.com or call 01273 493205. Sarah Jago

Singing is good for you! As well as sounding beautiful it expands the lungs and frees you from stress. OK, you think you can’t sing. Nonsense, everyone can sing, and with even more joy when done in the company of like-minded people. There’s something about singing in a choir that gives us a great sense of belonging, something that Henfield Voices (formerly Henfield Singing Circle) has been demonstrating tunefully for the past four years. The group meets at Henfield Hall each Wednesday from 7.30-9pm to enjoy an evening of laughter, fun and singing. New members are always welcome, particularly male voices to enhance the range of parts that can be sung. There is no audition. The songs are gathered from many world cultures and have joyful, catchy rhythms, lovely melodies and spine-tingling harmonies, the styles ranging from African chants to Baltic harmony, from Celtic lullabies to jazzy numbers. The singing is unaccompanied and everything is learnt by ear so there’s no need to be able to read music. Monica, an inspiring, skilful and passionate teacher, delights in sharing her love of song, her reward being the smiles of amazement when members realise that, yes, they can sing, and are helping to create wonderful harmonies. The group will be sharing songs during the Open Gardens and Arts weekend at Henfield, on Sunday 15 June at South View at 2pm and 5 Oaks, Lower Station Road at 3.30pm. For more information about joining contact Monica on 07788 166173 or email monmaloney@googlemail.com Monica Maloney

News | JUNE 2014 A DAZZLING FUNDRAISER IN £50,000 FUNDING FOR HENFIELD MEMORY OF A BEAUTIFUL AND TENNIS CLUB MUCH LOVED YOUNG LADY Henfield Tennis Club has secured Olympic legacy Friends and family of Martine Barthram, who tragically lost her life to breast cancer at the age of 35 last year, are holding a Memorial Fundraiser at South Lodge Hotel on 4 July. This glittering event in Martine’s memory will be as glamorous as Martine was, with a dress code of jewel colours and evening dress, an incredible auction of high value treats, great music and a wonderful three course dinner cooked by the resident Masterchef. This stylish event will raise money to refurbish the cancer treatment areas and waiting rooms at Worthing Hospital, to make life a little easier for other cancer sufferers and their families. Friends of Martine have been overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses in support of this event and thank them for all their donations. If you’d like to find out more (tickets are currently sold out but you can register your interest for cancellations) please go to: www.facebook.com/martinefund

funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund. The Club will receive £50,000 of National Lottery funding to replace its current pavilion with a new building with greatly improved facilities including the provision of changing and toilet facilities. This award will be supplemented by funds that the Club has been prudently setting aside ever since the need for a new pavilion was agreed several years ago. The Club is proud of its Youth Programme and flourishing relationship with St Peter’s Primary School; the new pavilion will be a tremendous boost to the Club’s junior coaching function. Club Chairman, Digby Stephenson, said: “We are delighted to have secured this investment, which means we can upgrade our premises to match the quality of our courts and coaching programme. I am particularly keen to promote the Club throughout the community, and to encourage the young people of the Village to play tennis, and to improve their skills.” Arundel & South Downs MP Nick Herbert said: “I am delighted that Henfield Tennis Club has received this fantastic

grant from Sport England. It is so important to provide the right facilities for young people to take part in sport, and this is an investment that will benefit tennis and the local community.” To celebrate the award you are invited to Club Open Days on 12-13 July, and two weeks of free tennis during Wimbledon fortnight.

RACE NIGHT RAISES FUNDS FOR ST PETER’S SCHOOL Henfield Lions raised more than £1,000 with a race night at St Peter’s School last month with half the money going towards new equipment for the school and the rest to charity. The school money will go towards a new interactive electronic whiteboard for pupils. Richard Lucy, chairman of the school PTA, said: “This was a fabulous fund-raising evening with tremendous support from the community. The Lions do a brilliant job.” Henfield Lions organiser David Pryor said: “We were delighted to support this very worthwhile project for the school. Charities will also benefit and we have to thank everyone who made the event such a great success.” Around 100 people attended the event, which involves backing horses shown racing on a big screen. The evening was supported by over 30 local companies. Mike Beardall

HENFIELD U15S NARROWLY LOSE…TO THEIR DADS The now annual Henfield Fc U15s Dad v lads 11-aside football match produced a wonderful game on Good Friday. As plucky 14 year olds last year the lads had (much as expected) been well beaten. But with everyone a year older (and that extra year being no

01273 494002

advantage for some of the Dads!) this was a much closer contest. The Dads soon got a grip on midfield and ten minutes of pressure finally produced a tap-in for Tim Franks after Ollie Barrott did well to block a fierce shot by Neil Butler. Tim grabbed a second soon after, but the lads were gradually getting to grips with the opposition largely by working out who could and who couldn’t run amongst their Dads. Half time Dads 2 Lads 0 The second half began with a third goal for the Dads via Gavin Hills who was guesting for the Dads on account of his being the u15s regular linesman. Ben Ward wriggled through with dazzling skills and a brilliant run down the middle and it took a fantastic save from the Dads reserve keeper Dick Hill to keep him out. Next it was Isaac Swaby’s turn for a chance and this time there was no mistake as he finished sweetly for 3 –1. All the play was now in the Dads half and Ward broke free down the left bearing down on goal. Rather than shoot he crossed for Swaby to bundle in number two amidst loud shouts for offside from some increasingly desperate Dads. Final score: Dads 3, Lads 2. With huge thanks to Simon Brown who refereed in exemplary fashion and Henfield Cricket Club who lent their facilities for the post match social. The players of the match (Steve Boyle for the Dads and Isaac Swaby for the lads) were presented their Easter egg prizes by Henfield u15s oldest supporter, Grand Dad Bobby Bedford.

Mike Morgan was re-elected Vice Chairman. This will be the last year of the current Council with election for a new council being held in May 2015. If you are considering putting yourself forward for election to Council you are reminded that all Council meetings, which are held in The Henfield Hall are open to the public. Full Council meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month commencing at 7pm and you are encouraged and most welcome to attend and observe what is involved being a parish councillor. Henfield Parish Council has now entered into an agreement with West Sussex County Council to undertake a variety of highway related functions including repairing potholes on roads and pavements within the village, cutting back vegetation which is obstructing the clear view of motorists, cleaning highway signs, removing unauthorised advertising boards and clearing leaves from blocked gullies. The agreement, whilst it is initially for a trial 12 month period, is hoped will become a permanent arrangement.

Both MPs are strongly opposed to the scheme and have been actively supporting the campaign against a new town. They will be joined by speakers from the CPRE (Campaign to Protect Rural England) and Anthony Watts Williams from LAMBS (Locals Against Mayfield Building Sprawl). Mayfield Market Towns has been promoting this area for development since last year when it published maps of its proposals on its website. The maps show three ‘options’ – ‘Option 1’ is a huge settlement centred at Wineham; ‘Option 2’ is two settlements at Wineham and Albourne and ‘Option 3’ is five smaller settlements with the main centre at Sayers Common and four more around Wineham, Shermanbury, Blackstone, and Albourne. The scheme is not in any of the local plans for Mid Sussex or Horsham Districts. However, the London-based company has recently announced that it is “embarking on the formal planning application process.” This proposal has far-reaching implications for the whole area.

THANK YOU FROM THE BP GUILD Once again through our fund raising events that members and friends participate in, we have, over the last 12 months been able to help many local organisations and individuals. Some of this has been through our donations to people who are themselves in need of seed money to launch a bigger fundraising undertaking or project that will assist to others. Those we have helped include: Senior Citizens outing (£3343); Girl Guides HQ Trust (£800); 2nd Henfield Guides (£700); Scout Badges (£469); Arun Cubs Pack (£250); Charitable help overseas via a Guide (£250); RBL Poppy Appeal (£150); and 3rd Henfield Brownies (£60). We have also been able to provide physical help when needed. For these we may use of our own assets or those loaned to us. Examples of these included: helping at major calendar events such as Lent, Christmas, and Fairs within the village. At these our members help raise and take down the Cross or Christmas Tree outside Barclays Bank; erect and take down Party Tents at Scout and Guides camps or for school fairs. Many of you are aware of our Senior Citizens day out with tea, lunch and entertainment. It

Previously, I wrote about how Henfield Museum has a ballgown that belonged to a Miss Owen. Why a ballgown? How did it get there? Miss Owen retired to Henfield in 1977 after a high powered career in London. From a heartfelt obituary in the Parish Magazine, I learnt that she was good company and how important her faith was to her. She was a regular attendee at St Peters and remained a communicant when housebound. As secretary of the Conservative Association she is remembered for her desire to see women equally represented at all levels. The West Sussex branch of the Royal Over- Seas League also benefited from her talents. ROSL is an organization

She told me that every Saturday night at ROSL, there was a social evening. And Miss Owen was on the dance committee. Perhaps that’s the ‘Why’? The ‘How’ is more poignant. She was a very organised lady. When she was ill, she made sure that her affairs were in order. A posthumous entry in the Parish Magazine sends her thanks to friends and medical staff for their support in her last days.

HART TEAM SCALE THE HEIGHTS

I

t takes a certain type of person to be a First Responder, someone with dedication, determination and a kindness towards their fellow man. The Henfield First Responders (HART, Henfield Area Response Team) are a very lovely bunch of volunteers who spend a lot of their spare time ‘on call’ and ready to respond as quickly as possible, before the ambulance arrives on the scene of a local emergency. They don’t receive any public funding, (aside from some SECAmb training) so the cost of providing defibrillators and other emergency equipment falls at the feet of local fundraisers and supporters. The fundraising is ongoing, defibs need replacing every few years and there is a drive by the group to populate the area with as many PADs (Public Access Defibrillators) as possible, especially in more rural parts. They would love to offer a 24/7 cover to the area and need more volunteers to help reach this goal. They work closely with PART (Partridge Green Response Team) and swap ‘patches’ when the areas are not covered, so if you live in Henfield you could find Heather Kingdon (one of the PART team walking the challenge) or one of her colleagues attending an emergency. The team are always up for a challenge, so when one of the responders (mentioning no names, Sandra Parsons…) suggested climbing Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis mountains in the space of 24 hours to raise money and awareness for HART, several enthusiastic members of the group raised their hands in support. As with many good plans, this one was hatched in the pub. It immediately gained the support of two local sponsors, Sean Preston from South Down Truck and Crane and Gyles Culver, landlord of the White Hart. Griffith Smith Farrington Webb, a firm of local solicitors where Anne Dewdney works, stepped up with even more sponsorship, as they always do where HART are concerned.

2 2 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

So now there are eight intrepid climbers, under the guidance of local businessman and all-round fitness guru Mark Skilton. (Incidentally, Mark got the fundraising ‘ball rolling’ by donating £200 from his local business DSA products, but don’t tell him we told you). The climbers; Claire Greenfield, Mark Skilton, Kas Fletcher, Heather Kingdon, Sandra Parsons, Martin Tooth, Josh Westlake and Anne Dewdney have been training hard in all weathers, fuelled by Sandra’s singing and pockets full of energy giving ‘Percy Pigs’. Their stomping ground has been the steep bits of the South Downs, as well as one very grueling trip to Snowdonia to really test their climbing skills. Martin Tooth said; “We’ve been asked lots of times why we’re doing this, and my answer would be to primarily raise awareness of what HART does. Some people still don’t know about us, or how crucial the first 4 minutes are in saving a person’s life after a heart attack. Local knowledge of defibrillator locations and the basics in resuscitation really will save lives. Of course, we also need to fill some tins to keep us on the road so all kind donations will be gratefully received.” Dave Fletcher, paramedic and founder member of HART is part of the support team, along with John Rodrigues. Their role is to drive the climbers between the mountains, provide food and generally boost morale. “At the moment HART are taking around 20 call-outs a month. These can range from giving reassurance to an elderly person who has fallen to a life-saving resuscitation. We save the ambulance team critical time and can help to stabilize and reassure the patient as well as get vital information. None of this would be possible without the overwhelming support of local people and the businesses that sponsor us. We are continually grateful.”

JUNE 2014 | Local interest I spoke with the sponsors of the event, local businesses who are helping to ‘make it happen’. Sean Preston and his mum Margaret are Henfielders who are very supportive of local charities including the Youth Club and Henfield Football Club. This year South Downs Truck & Crane (who employ around 20 local people) have chosen HART as the recipients of their donations. “HART have responded to us at work in the past so we know exactly what a difference they make,” said Sean. “This is something we can do to help them and show our gratitude.” Gyles Culver from the White Hart is a well-known supporter of HART; the fortnightly fundraising quizzes for the charity are incredibly popular and well supported. He’s providing the mini-bus that will ferry the climbers from mountain to mountain. “HART are a firm favourite with us at The White Hart. We’re pleased to continue our support for this local charity. The responders are all such lovely people and it’s a reassurance for us all that they are there if we need them.” Nadia Cowdrey from Griffith Smith Farrington Webb added; “We are delighted to be one of the sponsors of this event. All the donations will go directly to the voluntary responder units HART and PART for lifesaving defibrillator kits. Anne Dewdney, our Henfield Office Administrator is a keen member of HART and we wish the team every success in what will be a tough but very worthwhile challenge.” The HART team has a real challenge on their hands on 22nd June, but they will work as a team to encourage

Children love being able to get up close to the animals and Swains are more for the children to take a carrot from the shop to feed them (although this is such a popular activity they are limited to one – they don’t want the animals to get too fat!) Swains is very much a family business. Mick’s children Nina, Shelley and Paul have all grown up with the

GARDEN CENTRE

shop and they are all very much involved of the running of it on a day to day basis. Even the staff seem to become ‘one of the family’, often starting as a Saturday job they then return to work vacations if they go away to study, and some even start work full time from school. But what is really special about Swains is that it is support for our local community. Not only do they source as much of their produce as they can locally, but they also support local charities and host visits from local playgroups and the primary school. “We love being a part of the village life” explained Nina, “and we are incredibly grateful to all our loyal customers who have supported us over the years. As a thank you we would like to invite them all to our Family Fun Day to help us celebrate.”

JUNE 2014 | Charity

H

undreds of women will be making Saturday 21 June a ‘Night to Remember’ when they join St Barnabas House for Worthing’s annual midnight walk. There is now less than two weeks left to register for Night to Remember, the ladies-only midnight walk in aid of St Barnabas House, the adult’s hospice for Worthing, Adur, Arun and Henfield. Registration is now ladies in, marshalling the route or serving up breakfast open at www.nighttoremember.org.uk until 9 June 2014. for our fantastic walkers as they arrive back. If you Over the past six years, over 5,000 ladies have walked the streets and seafront of Worthing and have raised over £900,000 for St Barnabas House. In 2013, Night to Remember raised an incredible £121,306 for St Barnabas House which funded all of the care provided by our Hospice at Home team for two months. This year we hope to raise even more vital funds, so that we can meet the incredible demand for our Hospice at Home service, which from April 2014 will be extending through the night to provide care 24 hours a day. Whether a patient is in need of pain management, or their relative is in need of support, we want to be there for them in their time of need. This expansion will cost an additional £90,000 on top of the existing service running costs, but will help so many local people in their own homes. Please help us to help them. We have introduced a brand new challenge for 2014 with a 20 mile route, so ladies can now choose to walk 7, 13.1 or 20 miles through the night! The walk will start at Worthing Leisure Centre and registration is £20 per person, which includes a ‘Night Pack’ (our exclusive pink Night to Remember t-shirt, torch and medal), fundraising pack and refreshments en route. Registration closes on 9 June and you cannot register on the night – so get the girls together now and register to be one of our brightest stars! Men can get involved too! We are looking for over 150 volunteers to help us make Saturday 21 June a Night to Remember - whether registering our lovely

01273 494002

would like to volunteer on the evening please contact the Events Team on 01903 706355 or email events@ stbh.org.uk. It costs over £5 million each year to provide all of our St Barnabas services and patients are never charged for their care. Only a small part of these costs are funded by the government. We rely on events like Night to Remember and the generosity, help and support of the local community. Please visit www.nighttoremember. org.uk for more information and to register.

NATASHA’S BEAUTY SALON 01273 494732BN5 9DB

BRICK LANE HENFIELD

FOR THE BEAUTIFUL YOU

T

here is not much about the beauty business that Natasha from Natasha’s Beauty doesn’t know and she loves bringing new products and innovations to her customers in Henfield. The lovely thing is, that while she insists upon using the very best, she manages arrange distribution rights with companies such as Orly, Kissed by Mii and Environ, usually the domain of much larger Brighton salons who can charge inflated Brighton prices. These products are at the cutting edge of skincare health and beauty, Natasha insists upon them because they are the very best but she charges a fraction of the price of larger salons. Although you’d not believe it because Natasha looks incredibly young (back to those beauty product secrets again!) she started out 13 years ago, as a mobile beautician. “I loved being on the road, I had such lovely customers, some of whom were housebound and it was a real pleasure to

GelFx manicure or pedicure just £15 (usually £25)


the newest member of the team, has studied holistic therapies and is passionate about the salon’s natural products. Natasha has introduced two fantastic new products recently. Her new spray tan system ‘Kissed by Mii’ is light years away from the old fashioned tanning, it leaves a beautifully natural look created by a light mist, it’s vitamin enriched and great for the skin. Not that we’re implying the great British weather can be unreliable, but you might just want to get one of Natasha’s loyalty cards which gives six tans for the price of five! make them feel great. It’s part of being a beautician, NATASHA the enormous sense of gratification when you see one of your clients looking healthier, happier and feeling more confident.” She soon put down roots with a small salon behind Henfield Post Office, and eight years ago moved to her current location behind Hamfelds Home and Gardens. The salon has three nail stations in the main room and two serene treatment rooms, recently redecorated in gentle greys and pinks with new professional white furniture and fittings. Since starting her successful business she’s also found time to get married to Anthony and they now have the very gorgeous Daniel, coming up two and keeping everyone on their toes! Natasha has a team of three girls and one ‘Saturday’ girl. Claire has worked at the salon for three years and was married last year. She loves creating Beautiful Brows – a skill that demands precision and concentration. Chantelle is a mum to two who works parttime, she loves to give relaxing facials and massage. Lucy,

Kissed by Mii spray tan just £15 (usually £25)

She’s also invested in the new Orly range of GelFx colours. Shorter and well-manicured nails are right on trend, so GelFx is the perfect answer. The gel protects and encourages nail growth, while giving a beautiful and long lasting finish; if you’ve always had a traditional manicure you’ll love the difference of GelFx. Natasha also stocks identically matching nail varnishes, so you can use the same colour at home. The colours are stunning, from beautiful iridescents to glitter and this season’s almost neon brights. Natasha’s secret to success is never to stand still. She brings new products to the salon every year and her latest, Environ, has been a great success. Natasha sees it as the future of beauty, in time it’ll be second nature to us all that what we eat and our lifestyle has enormous effects on our skin. Environ is a range of supplements as well as skin treatments and products which help to regenerate ageing skin and reverse some of the day to day damage that our skin encounters. The system includes an analysis of your skin and a treatment package to boost and kick-start brighter looking skin. Electrical facials help reduce pigmentation, acne, acne scarring and eczema, with a very natural range of vitamins. Because Natasha builds relationships with her customers, she sees the care of their skin and their health as fundamental to the service she gives. If you’re looking for beauty treatments that are tailor made for you, at the price of a village salon, then look no further.

ONE OF THE FIRST FIRMS IN THE COUNTRY ACCREDITED UNDER THE LAW SOCIETY’S NEW WILLS & INHERITANCE QUALITY SCHEME (WIQS) The Law Society has accredited the first group of law firms to its new Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS). Griffith Smith Farrington Webb LLP Solicitors are one of the first 40 firms to secure accreditation. The scheme is aimed at Solicitors Regulation Authority regulated practices that offer Will drafting, Probate and Estate Administration services. Accreditation is awarded to firms who demonstrate to clients their commitment to the highest standards of client service. Griffith Smith Farrington Webb LLP has undergone a rigorous

assessment to gain the WIQS accreditation. The Tax, Trusts & Estates Team at Griffith Smith Farrington Webb LLP undertake wide-ranging training, selfreporting, random audits and annual reviews in order to maintain the highest standards of client service and WIQS status. Nadia Cowdrey, LLP Partner/ Solicitor and Head of the Tax, Trusts & Estates Team said “WIQS is an important stringent quality standard reinforcing the importance of using a Solicitor for Will writing and Estate Administration. It offers reassurance to clients and enables

Griffith Smith Farrington Webb LLP to stand out in an increasingly crowded and diverse market. Anyone can set up as a Will writer but, only a law firm with qualified Solicitors meeting high standards can be members of WIQS. It is hoped that this scheme will assist clients making an informed choice about who is best placed to write their Will or administer an estate.”

Teen Troubles…

I sometimes receive call s from distressed parents, enquiring about counse lling for their teenage son or daughter who is having problems of some kind. Most often these calls for help are triggered by some recent crisis or disc losure in the child’s life that has come as a sho ck. Whatever the issue, whether related to school, drugs & alcohol, sexual behaviour, self-harm, bull ying … the potential list is endless but the common factor is that the parents are beside themselves with worry and anxiety for their child.

As parents we feel resp onsible, we feel we hav e failed, should have bee n more alert, could hav e seen the signs sooner. And now what we wan t most desperately is a solu tion, a quick-fix to make everything better and the problem go away as fast as possible.

THE RED OAKS

A

C O M P E T I T I O N

ACK IN THE SUMMER OF 2013 BARCHESTER HEALTHCARE ANNOUNCED A NEW B PROMOTION COMPETITION ENTITLED ‘THE BIG APPLE’ FOR THEIR HOMES. THE COMPETITION WAS BASED ON THE OCCUPATION LEVELS WITHIN ALL THE BARCHESTER HOMES.

No one at Red Oaks really ever thought about it after that. In October Jacky Welch our General Manager received a telephone call from head office who announced that Red Oaks had won the competition. Now Jacky had a big decision to make; who would be going on a Luxury 6 day trip to New York. In the end Jacky decided to hold a ballot with one vote for everyone who worked at Red Oaks. The ballot took place over a 4 week period to ensure that virtually everyone could place their vote. Eventually the ballot box was opened and the votes counted. The result was for Martin & Marilyn Knight, Jacky Welch and Sharon Haigh. It was decided that we would travel at the end of April 2014. The 4 6 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

itinerary was prepared with departure on 25th April returning on the 30th April. The journey started with a flight on Virgin Atlantic in their Premium Class with VIP Airport Lounge access. We arrived at Newark Airport to be met by a massive stretched Limousine to take us to the 5 star Conrad Hotel where two suites had been booked. That night we were booked on the New York Dinner Cruise where we had a lovely meal whilst having a fantastic tour of the New York skyline up the Hudson river and out to Staton Island for a great view of the Statue of Liberty.

We then all went to Ground Zero which was very thought provoking because you get to see how huge a tragedy it really was. That night we were met by an even bigger stretched Limousine and taken to the Ambassador Theatre to see the show, Chicago, with front row seats. After the show we were met by the same vehicle and taken back to our hotel. Next day we made our way to Central Park for a Horse and Carriage ride through Central Park which was very interesting and very relaxing. That evening we made our way to 11 Madison Park, a 3 Michelin Star Restaurant, which this week, has been voted the 4th best restaurant on the planet. Wow The next day we were booked onto a Big Apple is all we can say. Helicopter tour over the City. This is definitely the Sixteen courses way to see New York, truly breathtaking. of mind blowing food! Every meal that we all Central Park have for the rest of our lives will truly be a disappointment. The following day we had VIP tickets to miss all the queues at the Empire State Building with some of the best views in the world. The rest of the day and the following day were spent shopping and travelling on the open top tour buses. Finally returning to Newark in another limousine. We all agreed that we had all had a fantastic time in the city that never sleeps. We left England as work colleagues and returned as true friends.

Local interest | JUNE 2014

L

ocal contemporary portrait painter Claire Phillips is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects as her latest exhibition at Horsham Museum and Art Gallery testifies. ‘Reclaiming childhood - face to face with child labour in India’ is a collection of portraits of children who have been rescued from a life of slavery and forced labour in India. The images are beautiful but the stories behind them are both shocking and emotional.

in appalling conditions in a range of industries including mining, brick works, clothing factories and even domestic work. The children almost never see their families again.” This is where BBA is working to make a difference. Set up in 1980 by the Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi, the charity is at the forefront of the fight against slavery, forced labour and bonded labour through direct intervention. To date the charity has rescued over 82,800 children. In the short term BBA provides the children with food, clothing, shelter, medical aid, psychological and legal assistance, and non-formal education. In the longer term they try to return the children to their parents or if that is not possible, provide them with long term rehabilitation and education. Although passionate about human rights issues, Claire does not see herself as a campaigner. “I want to encourage people to think about the issues I care about and I hope that when they see my portraits they connect with them and the story behind them. Today there are around 60 million children in India under the age of 14 who are working for little or no wages rather than being educated. It’s all about money and we need Western buying power to get involved.” Each of the children represented in the 12 large scale and eight smaller scale paintings in the exhibition have been rescued from the most appalling working conditions. The images show them as mischievous, innocent and vulnerable - children in the process of reclaiming their childhood. The pictures are accompanied by the stories of the children’s experiences and a sound track. Claire will be donating the profits from the sale of prints and paintings through this exhibition to the BBA charity. The exhibition is on at the Horsham Museum and Art Gallery until 5 July 2014, after which it will move to the Oxo Tower in London.

Back in 2009 Claire came across an article in the Sunday Times about child trafficking and slavery in India. The article had a profound effect on her and so she made contact with the journalist who in turn put her in contact with the Indian charity Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA). “After hearing many arguments justifying the use of child labour in India, I was particularly keen to get the perspective of an organisation closely involved with the issue on a daily basis” she explained. Claire first visited the BBA charity in October 2011 and then she returned a year later. On both occasions she interviewed, sketched and photographed rescued children as young as nine years old. “I first visited the safe home where children are taken to immediately following their rescue. The children were understandably very quiet, wary and just stared at me. I then went to visit a rehabilitation centre in Rajasthan and the difference was amazing: the children were relaxed, noisy and boisterous – it made me realise just what a huge difference the charity makes in their lives.” Claire also led a couple of painting workshops with some rescued children and some of their drawings are also featured in the exhibition. Claire went on to describe how parents in poverty are tricked into giving up their children: “Child traffickers visit impoverished families and promise to give their child an education and access to a better life. Instead they are sold into slavery and end up working Sarah Butler

JUNE 2014 | Local interest

“Our first visit was to Mukti Ashram – a safe centre where the rescued children are taken for immediate rehabilitation, food, reassurance and counselling. Around 80 small boys were staying there, sitting quietly, close to one another, staring at us through enormous dark wary eyes. Little Waseem was the first to break the ice – smaller than most but just a little bit more confident. Claiming to be 12 but looking much younger, he told us how he had been stitching leather purses and wallets. He lived, slept and ate in the factory, working from 10 in the morning until 9 at night and received no money for his labour. As Waseem talked the other boys edged forward, staring suspiciously, all unnaturally quiet and still, solemn and obedient. Finally they began to share their stories - their sad brown eyes close to tears as they talked of the conditions they’d left and how much they missed their parents and home. Most had been brought by the traffickers; a few had escaped violent fathers or bankruptcy after family illness. They worked making hair combs, shoes, bracelets, sorting plastics or garbage. Many told tales of beatings, showed bruises and scars. One 9 year old boy described how he was beaten with an electric cable if he fell asleep at work, if he cried he would be beaten more so he learned not to cry. When he was being beaten, he came to the conclusion that he was born to be beaten. He was poor and that’s what happens to poor people.”

Pensions are rubbish...

K

eeping the pension theme from my last editorial, the above is a phrase I hear far too often. The truth is an abandoned, ignored and unloved pension will most likely evolve into something rubbish over time. When I meet with a client for the first time one of the things I do is collate the information they have about all their various savings, protection and investment policies. When I come to ask about any pension policies they have I am often told they have a couple of frozen personal pensions from a few years back “but not to worry about them”. This always surprises me as it is not uncommon for these frozen pensions to have tens of thousands of pounds in and yet they are not interested in them. The pension is not really frozen anyway, you may not be able to spend the money immediately and you may not be paying into it anymore, but the money is still invested, so can fall and rise in value and the pension provider is still taking their charges. Many people are put off monitoring and managing their pensions purely as they feel they do not fully understand pensions and how they work. In actual fact, a pension does not differ from any other type of investment except for the favourable tax advantages of pensions and the rules around its accessibility. Despite this, it often seems that if a client has a share portfolio they will monitor it very regularly and can be emotionally affected by any gains or losses made. However they may have “an old

01273 494002

pension”, which could even have a higher value than their shares, which they disregard as a ‘tiny’ pension and do not monitor its performance or make any changes to its investments. Pension contracts have changed a lot in recent years, with charges falling and investment options widening. There may be good reasons for leaving your pension with your existing provider, such as a high Guaranteed Annuity Rate (GAR) or heavy exit penalties, but if you do not at least look at it, how can you possibly know? The differences in terms of what you can receive from a well nurtured pension can be tens of thousands, so whilst carrying out your spring cleaning, why not dust off your old pensions and bring them back to life? Or better still, get an independent financial adviser to do it for you.

Business | JUNE 2014

Zero hours contracts D

ue to alleged misuse by some employers, zero hours contracts recently became one of the hottest topics in the press. As a result, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has started a consultation with businesses on the problems identified with their use. There is currently no legal definition of what constitutes a zero hours contract. Essentially it is defined by the fact that there is no set number of hours guaranteed for the individual. This type of contract was originally used by organisations to enable a more flexible workforce to be engaged on an ‘as and when required’ basis to allow for peaks and troughs in work. The reality is that this type of contract can differ from one entity to the next, depending on what is included. For instance, in some cases, individuals are obligated to accept work offered, in others they are not. In some cases, zero hours contracts restrict individuals from working for other employers, even when they are not supplied with any work. The important question though that employers need to consider when using zero hours contracts is that of employment status. Employers can deploy an individual on a zero hours contract to be either an employee or a ‘worker’. Because workers share some characteristics of being employed and some of being self-employed, it is not always clear from a contract whether a person is an employee or a ‘worker’. If someone does casual or irregular work for a business and most of the statements below apply to them, it is likely they are a worker: • they occasionally do work for a specific business; • the business does not have to offer them work and they do not have to accept it; • their contract with the business uses terms like ‘casual’, ‘zero hours’, ‘as required’ or similar; • they had to agree with the business’s terms and conditions to secure work (either verbally or in writing); • they are under the supervision or control of a manager or director; • they cannot send someone else to do their work; • the business deducts tax and National Insurance contributions from their wages; and • the business provides materials, tools or equipment they need to do the work. Used in the right way, a carefully worded ‘worker’ agreement can provide an employer with greater potential flexibility and cost savings, as a worker will not usually be entitled to certain employment rights such as minimum notice periods if their employment ends

6 4 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

(for example if an employer is dismissing them), protection against unfair dismissal, the right to request flexible working, time off for emergencies and Statutory Redundancy Pay. It is a popular misconception that the individual concerned will always be a ‘worker’. If you are using zero hour contracts in any form, do be careful to avoid actions which may make your worker an employee. If a worker starts to work a regular pattern or is just added to your rota each week/month there is a high risk of them quickly becoming a permanent employee, despite what is written in their contract. This can create a high risk of an unfair dismissal claim and come as quite a shock to an unsuspecting employer who simply decided not to offer the individual any further shifts.
