Editor’s Letter When a project is in its infancy it’s hard to imagine what the outcome will be, it’s certainly difficult to visualise someone else’s ideas. The same could be said of Liz and Trevor Hodgson’s ‘tree stump carving’ project, which we’ve followed closely and printed articles about since Liz came up with the idea over a year ago. The end result is an absolute triumph, the sculpture is tucked away down a footpath beside Henfield Leisure Centre and the tennis courts, hidden enough to be a delight when it’s discovered but visible enough to generate a hive of activity, especially before and after school. Children can discover the charming animals and insects hidden around the stump. My favourite is the majestic stag beetle. This endangered insect is often seen in Henfield and by featuring it the sculpture the artist is helping the next generation to respect and care for these incredible creatures. Well done Liz for all your hard work on the project and for pushing on when it was so difficult to find the funding, we are so pleased you did. Thanks to everyone who donated. Enjoy June, we’re looking forward to the longer days, sunshine and enjoying the best our beautiful village has to offer.

DEAL OR NO DEAL? I’m sure most people were like me in feeling a high level of Brexit fatigue in the lead up to the 29th March when we were supposed to leave the EU in a dignified and graceful manner. It’s been jolly nice to have had a respite from all the speculations over different outcomes pending different votes. For that reason, I’m sorry to bring the subject up again in June, when we should be thinking about French Open tennis or preparing for the Henfield Summer Fair next month! To be honest, when it came to Brexit, I had rather naively thought that whatever the outcome, it wouldn’t actually affect little old me much in terms of my day to day life. The dog is still going poo on the lawn after coming back from a walk, treading on Lego in bare feet is still going to be just as painful and co-op users in Partridge Green are still going to use the practice car park (sorry for the little gripe there!). Hard, soft, well done or rare, I didn’t think the details of Brexit would filter down to affect the minutiae of life. However, what I hadn’t really considered was a no-deal Brexit and it wasn’t until this became a distinct possibility that the ramifications of this came to light in the form of a barrage of updates from the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) which while it might sound like something out of Harry Potter is a real organisation with many functions, one of which is to deal with all things relating to Pet Travel. It turns out that a no-deal Brexit could have serious implications for pet travel. One would hope that come the 31st of October, some sort of deal will have been reached. However, politically unaware as I am, given the lack of progress over the past three years, it is probably worth giving these implications a thought! If you are considering travelling with your pet after 31st October, you should be aware of the following: Please feel free to contact Jonathan and Annelise Underwood MRCVS and associates to discuss any aspect of your pets’ care at the practice.

reception@hawthornvets.co.uk www.hawthornvets.co.uk 01273 494002

Under the current Pet travel scheme, any dog or cat can travel to another country within the pet travel scheme three weeks after a rabies vaccination has been given. (They will also need to have a microchip and have been issued with a pet passport). In the event of a no deal Brexit, the UK could be unceremoniously kicked out of the Pet Travel scheme and end up as an unlisted third country for the purposes of Pet travel. If this happens, the rules change quite dramatically. A rabies vaccine, microchip and passport are still mandatory, but in addition, a rabies blood test is required 30 days or more after the rabies vaccine, and the dog or cat must demonstrate sufficient antibody levels to rabies. For best results the blood test is ideally performed as close to 30 days after the vaccine as possible. Furthermore, travel is not permitted until three months after the rabies blood test was performed. Confused? Don’t be embarrassed! The upshot is that if you know you definitely want to be able to travel with your pet regardless of the outcome of Brexit (especially if your trip is on the four months after 31st October) - (1st November – 29th February), then you should prepare for the worst and have a rabies vaccine around four and a half months before you wish to travel and a blood test 30 days later. You’ll then be able to travel with your pet 3 months after the blood test regardless of the outcome of Brexit. If you do wish to / need to travel in the affected months, then the best bet is to give us a call and we can give you specific advice on your plans. My advice? Try not to book any pet related trips outside the UK in the four months after the 31st October and wait and see what happens! I’ve heard that the Isle of Wight is especially nice in January – you can guarantee the best spot on the beach!

Henfield’s St George’s Day celebrations

The Royal Society of St George suggested that towns and villages throughout England should celebrate St George’s Day in the same way as Scotland, Ireland and Wales acknowledge their Patron Saints. The Year 3 children at St Peter’s CE School took part in a competition, with the winning entry showing George and the Dragon on the front cover of the April edition of BN5 magazine. The whole school also had a special assembly that included an illustrated talk by a member of the Society of St George. Organiser Arun Agarwal, who planned Henfield’s celebrations over a year ago with Wynn Saunders (who sadly recently passed away) wanted to have something ‘quintessentially English’ to entertain the children on St George’s Day, so a Punch and Judy show, preceded by a magic show, was held in the Henfield Hall garden with popcorn and sweets on sale. In the evening, a concert was arranged with English Country dancing led by Mike Ainscough and his band. When they stopped for a well-earned rest the floor was taken over by the Mythago Morris Dancers, a large group of players who provided the music and dancing for a delightful performance that included the story of our very own Sussex Dragon. A Ploughman’s Supper was served by the Henfield Friends of St Barnabas House Hospice, who also undertook all the arrangements for the evening – tables, chairs and decorations, so a big thank you to them. There was also an exhibition at the back of the hall, put together by the Sussex Branch of the Royal Society of St George, showing lots of facts and information about the origins of St George becoming our Patron Saint and details for joining the Society. Our local shops and businesses have been wonderful – not only by advertising this key village event with posters but also by decorating their windows with flags and, best of all, donating a 14 | BN5 Magazine

South Downs Riding for the Disabled Group

South Downs Riding for the Disabled Group are proud to announce that Toffee the pony is now a full-time member of their team. When they heard that his owners wanted to sell him, they could not bear to lose him, and decided that they had to take action. They are now drawing up a plan of action to fund his keep and as they currently only use him one day per week, think it would be lovely for someone else to benefit from his wonderful temperament and nature through a loan arrangement. Toffee is an adorable Connemara pony of 14.2 hh, who would be ideal for gentle hacking or as a starter pony, working from Albourne Equestrian Centre where he is currently homed. If anyone is interested in such an arrangement or would like to sponsor him, please contact the group at info@ southdownsrda.org to discuss, or take a look at their website www.southdownsrda.org. South Downs RDA group are based at Albourne Equestrian Centre. Their volunteers, horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities of all ages and from all backgrounds. They hope to create a sense of increased confidence and above all, a feeling of having a good time. The benefits of riding are plain to see from the faces of the riders.

recently been revived. If approved, the new town would be some three times larger than Henfield and would approach to within a couple of fields to the east of Henfield’s built-up area. The campaign group LAMBS is actively fighting that proposal. Both development proposals attempt to take advantage of the fact that Horsham’s building target is to be increased from the present 800 houses per year to over 1000 per year under new government rules introduced in 2018. The rule changes also threaten to overtake Henfield’s ongoing Neighbourhood Planning process and create a new loophole for speculative developments.

Sandy Lane appeal

Fairfax Acquisitions have lodged an appeal against the refusal of planning permission by Horsham District Council in February. The company wants to build 42 new homes on the ‘Land North of Sandy Lane’, a proposal which received around 350 letters of objection from local people when the planning application was first made in November 2018. The appeal will be decided at a Planning Inquiry to be held over 4 days starting on 6 August 2019. Fairfax state that “Detailed expert evidence and legal submission will be required on landscape matters, heritage matters, and the interaction of the development, five-year housing land supply in the District, and paragraph 11 of the National Planning Policy Framework.” They plan to call four expert witnesses to give evidence for 1-2 hours each. The community has very little time to decide how to respond to the appeal. Any additional written evidence has to be submitted by 6 June and we have to register if we wish to participate actively in the Inquiry. CPRH (Campaign to Protect Rural Henfield) is urgently considering the options including raising funds to retain our own experts and take legal counsel. The news about Sandy Lane comes on top of the Mayfield Market Town proposal which has

Batts Pond clean-up

In April Henfield District Angling Society (HDAS) began to clear the leaves from Batts Pond which have built up heavily over the years. As well as the leaves and expected sticks, we also found a lot of rubbish that had been dumped into the pond, including 8 metal bars, a road sign, many bottles, a lot of rubble and a pair of roller blades. Please can you respect the pond for what it is, a haven for nature in the village. This year eleven mallard ducklings are being raised and a pair of moorhens frequent the pond daily. Despite the rubbish, the water tested perfectly for its PH, Nitrate and Ammonia levels. We will be completing the clean-up in the following weeks and hope to see people fishing the pond again. It is open to members of HDAS and for any

children under the age of 12. As well as the work at Batts Pond, the Society recently conducted our annual ‘litter pick’ on the River Adur. Nearly all the rubbish collected we believe had been brought up on the tide from the coast, as well as sweet wrappers dropped by walkers along the path. Please, please take your rubbish home with you and if you see a plastic bag while you are out, pick it up and bin it, as it will end up in the river and eventually the sea. HDAS is a thriving society with over 300 members with many miles of fishing on the River Adur, which has produced both pike and carp to over 30lbs, as well as quality roach and bream fishing. We also boast 3 still waters within 10 miles of Henfield. For details see www.henfieldas.co.uk.

Henfield Museum - can you identify any of these children?

If you were at the Infants School in Nep Town between 1944 and 1957 you will remember the teacher Miss Susan Simmonds, who is shown in this photograph. She was born in 1898 and retired to Lewes in late 1957 when the new Fabians Way school was opened. She died in Portsmouth in 1968. The photograph may date to the early 1950’s, but can you identify any of the children? If you can please contact me at the museum.

Making a splash for St Barnabas

My name is Helena and I am a member of staff at Henfield Medical Centre. I am trying to make a ‘splash’ for St Barnabas Hospice by swimming, at a local club swimming pool, 21km in 21 days. I understand the need for excellent palliative care and support for personal reasons. With great sadness I lost my husband to cancer and therefore experienced first-hand the undeniably fantastic support and care St Barnabas offered. St Barnabas House is a charity whose aim is to provide high quality, specialist palliative care, both within the hospice and in the comfort of patients’ homes, caring for adults with advanced progressive life-limiting illnesses. Patients are never charged for their care. It costs £6.5 million each year to provide all of the hospice’s care services with just 21% of these costs state funded. This means that the majority of the money has to be raised through voluntary donations from local communities within the Worthing, Adur, Arun and Henfield areas. If you would like to help increase awareness and support for this amazing cause, donations can be made at Henfield Medical Centre, Village Care, Swains Farm Shop and my Just Giving page, www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Helena-Worman.

A new beginning inspired by history for the Post House Café

Oliver and Richard have taken over the mantle of village café from Paul and Gail at The Post House Café. Having moved to Henfield a year ago they have immersed themselves in village life, made many new friends in the area and love being part of the village community. Oliver’s love of coffee and cake saw him as a regular customer at the café, so he jumped at the opportunity to take over the business. Having lived in Hove and London and having experienced many different types of café, Oliver and Richard were keen to bring some new ideas with them and build on the community feel of the B.P Guild Chairman’s Cup for café.

Wynn Saunders 1935 -2019

Winifred Edith Saunders (Wynn) was born on 28th February 1935. The family moved to London in 1939 but was evacuated back to Sussex when their flat was bombed. They settled in Cowfold where Wynn lived with her grandparents while her father was serving in the army. Wynn lived and worked in Henfield for 65 years. She worked at the Post Office for several years where she was very well known and respected. Wynn was truly a peoples’ person; volunteering at the Youth club, the Garden and Camera clubs, the Monday Walkers group with her brother-in-law Reg, the Trefoil guild (she had been a Brownie and a Girl Guide). She was a founder member of the Friends of the Medical Centre and on the committee of the Friends of St. Peters Church. Wynn was a Parish Councillor for 11 years and during most of this time also chair of the Henfield Museum Committee. She was instrumental in starting the Friends of the Henfield Museum. Whilst she had a love of social history and was particularly knowledgeable about local history, it was the chats with visitors and cups of tea that

she relished most. Wynn later worked at Mr. Skippings’ drapers shop. When he retired she went with Margaret to open a ladies’ dress shop in Caudle Street. 20 years later Wynn left to nurse her husband Bob, who became seriously ill. Bob and Wynn celebrated their Golden Wedding in 2003. Sadly, Bob died 2 years later. Wynn continued her activities in the village – delivering the Parish magazine, delivering meals on wheels and co-ordinating the Medical Centre Link Service. Wynn met Arun and together they embraced new adventures and found love and companionship as they travelled the world. She proudly remarked; “Together we have been to 5 continents”. Wynn was a kind and beautiful woman with a ready smile and helping hand; a bright and sharp wit with a cheeky sense of humour. She will be very much missed by the Henfield community and, of course, by Arun and her daughters, grandchildren and great grand-daughter. Adapted from the Eulogy given at Wynn’s funeral.

7pm, Friday 14th June St Peters Church, Henfield. Mayfield Market Town (MMT) are increasing their activities in this area and have published a plan to build a town with more than 6,000 houses less than half a mile from Henfield village centre. They have entertained members of local authorities and utility companies at South Lodge. We need to have our voices heard and ensure that Henfield doesn’t become HenMayfield. LAMBS (Locals Against the Mayfields Building Sprawl) invite you to a Public Meeting which will include Nick Herbert MP and Nicholas Soames MP about one of the most critical issues which faces the area, namely the new Horsham District Plan and associated building requirements. This Plan is expected to be approved by Horsham District Council (HDC) in September. Inclusion in the Plan would represent MMT’s last chance to secure a foothold and after 7 years of opposition and rejection by Mid Sussex District Council – LAMBS is determined that MMT’s proposals cannot be allowed to find a place in Horsham District Council’s plan. For more information please visit www.lambs.org.uk

lthough turnout at the Local Elections for Horsham District Council was averaging around 35% district-wide, Henfield saw a healthy 41% of those eligible vote on 2nd May. A big thank you to all five candidates taking part in the election, it was closely fought with Mike Morgan (Independent) gaining 1,088 votes and

Josh Potts (Conservative) gaining 614 votes, both being duly elected as Councillors for the Henfield Ward. Celia Emmott (Green Party) gained 531 votes, Brian O’Connell (Conservative) gained 507 votes and Fiona Ayres (Labour) gained 505. If you haven’t done so already, here’s an opportunity to Meet your Councillors!

MIKE MORGAN Independent something unique about Henfield in the way that we work as a community.

What’s your favourite event in the Henfield calendar?

Tell us a little about you!

I moved to Henfield when my job as a Conveyancer at Griffith Smith Farrington Webb brought me here in 1974 from Hove. I served for six years on the PTA at St Peter’s Primary School and later I was elected to the Henfield Parish Council in 1986/7, a role which I have thoroughly enjoyed and which I still hold today. Four years ago, Henfield elected me as an Independent Councillor to serve on Horsham District Council. I followed in the footsteps of my partner Sheila Matthews who previously had been the Independent Councillor for 20 years and was awarded an MBE for her service to the community. Henfield has had a proud tradition of having an Independent Councillor at Horsham for over 35 years, something which is unique in Horsham District.

What do you love about Henfield?

When I first moved to Henfield I was immediately struck by the friendliness of the people and this continues, it does take a while to walk the length of the High Street! There has always been 28 | BN5 Magazine

There are many things to enjoy about Henfield; the Summer Show is fantastic and brings the whole village together for a day of celebration and fun. The Remembrance Parade is very special to me and to many in the village, it enables us to remember those people of Henfield who served their country and, importantly, those who gave their lives for us. I have been honoured to be Parade Marshal for the past nine years and my involvement as RBL Poppy Appeal Organiser has been humbling indeed; some of the Henfield collectors have given up to 40 years’ individual service and the village has raised £40,375 for this important charity over the past five years.

What do you feel are the biggest issues affecting Henfield, and how will you help address them at HDC?

The viability of our High Street shops is clearly an issue, which is replicated throughout the country, at the moment we are working for an ATM for the village, it has been a real blow to lose all our banks. I will continue to work with the Officers at HDC involved with the economic wellbeing of the District to help wherever possible. In Henfield we are currently working on a project to bring better Food Bank provision to those most in need in Henfield, more news to follow soon. Planning and balancing sustainable housing development is of concern, and I will continue to work with Officers to protect Henfield. Getting the balance right to achieve affordable housing for our young people in the village while protecting from overdevelopment is of the utmost importance and there is great work being done on the Henfield Neighbourhood Plan to achieve this.

JOSH POTTS Conservative What’s your favourite place in Henfield?

The myriad of footpaths and bridleways that surround the village are a joy to explore, there’s interesting history around every corner. I do really appreciate the vast range of community groups, there are still many for me to discover. I have enjoyed visiting the Henfield Shed recently and seeing what they offer, the quality of their workmanship, and understanding how much they put back into the community, not to mention their sense of fun. I also like to visit many of the pubs when I can and enjoy meeting local people there for a chat.

Tell us a little about you!

I am a relative ‘newbie’ to Henfield having moved back from London to take up the reins at the family farm at Shiprods on the Wheatsheaf Road, working with sheep and alpacas. I spent several years in the wine trade and continue to import some wine from predominantly French independent producers. I have been an active member of LAMBS (Locals Against Mayfield Sprawl) and I am passionate about our local countryside.

What do you love about Henfield?

I am extremely proud to call Henfield home. It is a friendly and welcoming village with a great sense of community. Alongside good amenities and facilities, there is so much on offer with a plethora of clubs, groups and societies that cater for a wide variety of interests and hobbies. It’s fantastic. Above all, Henfield is a beautiful location steeped in history, situated amongst beautiful countryside with breathtaking views over the South Downs National Park.

Both Mike and Josh are here to serve their village and to serve you. They are also Henfield Parish Councillors so, if you’ve got any questions or issues for them then one of the Parish Council meetings is a great place for a face-to-face chat. Henfield Parish Council meetings take place on the second Tuesday of each month in the Henfield Hall from 7pm-9pm and all are welcome. Alternatively, Mike is available on 01273 492134 or at mike.morgan@horsham.gov.uk and Josh

01273 494002

What do you feel are the biggest issues affecting Henfield, and how will you help address them at HDC?

There is no doubt that the ongoing threat of overdevelopment is one of Henfield’s greatest challenges, not least because this will exacerbate many of the other challenges facing the village. Whether this is in the form of add-on developments, a proposed new town on Henfield’s doorstep, or both; excessive housing will put an impossible burden on our already strained infrastructure. New homes are needed and, most importantly, affordable homes are needed. But this should be achieved through the neighbourhood planning process, not by the ‘say so’ of developers, so that Henfield can plan for the right number of houses in the right places whilst maintaining the rural community that is so special to so many people. There will be a public meeting about development threats to the village on Friday, 14th June at 7pm at St Peter’s Church in Henfield, with local MPs, Parish Councillors, Mike and myself attending. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

he enormously successful Henfield Festival of Garden and Arts, which this year takes place over the weekend of 8 - 9 June 2019, is now in its 20th year! The Festival originally started as a dancing competition in the 1970’s and local residents began opening their gardens as an added attraction. The dance element died away but the garden openings proved so popular that the Festival was reborn as the Henfield Festival of Gardens & Arts. The Festival has been delighting and entertaining ever since with artistic, musical and horticultural pleasures and this year is featured as one of the main events of the Horsham year of Culture 2019. Ranging from large lawns with herbaceous borders to small terraces with patio pots, from traditional planting to more contemporary designs, and from ponds to vegetable plots there will be a wide variety of interesting gardens on show. The owners are usually more than happy to discuss their gardens and it’s a fantastic opportunity to find horticultural inspiration. Entry to all venues is free of charge, but many owners 34 | BN5 Magazine

use the opportunity to collect for charities. Donations are entirely voluntary but we hope you will be as generous as last year when an amazing £9,000 was raised for local and national charities. Art and craft in all its varied forms will be on display and for sale in various gardens as well as community venues such as St Peter’s Church, the Henfield Hall, the Henfield Club, and Red Oaks. Mediums on show will include watercolours, acrylics, drawings, jewellery, photography, sculpture, textiles (such as crochet, patchwork and quilting), mosaics and glass-work. Live music is a large part of the festival and this year is no exception with a wide variety of talented musicians and vocalists performing in gardens and community venues. Many musical genres will be featured including classical, soul, funk, disco, jazz, folk, blues, bluegrass and country - something for everyone! Other entertainment will include Morris Dancing, Bollywood Dancing workshops and for our canine friends, a dog show. Always a highlight of the Festival is the delicious homemade food and drink offered by a number www.henfieldbn5.co.uk

of gardens and community venues. Visitors will be able to sit back and enjoy their surroundings, listen to music and appreciate art whilst tucking into tasty lunches, cakes, snacks and afternoon teas. As an added attraction and to celebrate our 20th year, the Gardens and Arts Committee is this year hosting a Flower Festival at St Peter’s Church over the whole weekend. The very considerable flower arranging talent of the village will combine to fill the Church with colour and scent, offering a stunning visual display. The flower arrangements will be provided by the Ladies from Ladybirds, Wild Violets, Henfield & Woodmancote WI, The Flower Club, The Church Ladies, The Garden Club and Woodmancote Church. To complement the displays, Rushfields Garden Centre are very generously providing plants, and The Art Club will be displaying their artwork. The Henfield Shed, who made the display outside Jeremy’s, will also be exhibiting. This year, the Festival finale will be celebrated in the Henfield Hall, featuring the fabulous Jonny Hepbir Quintet playing gypsy jazz, with food and dancing into the evening.

The Festival of Gardens and Arts guide (the ‘Blue Book’) provides suggested routes to the venues and gardens to assist those not so familiar with the footpaths and twittens of Henfield. This includes pushchair and wheelchair-friendly routes, where to find the exhibitors, the music and the food and there is also guidance about bringing your dog into venues. The new website www. gardensandarts.net has all the latest news and the content can be downloaded. The booklets are available at local retailers, the Library, Rushfields Garden Centre and other outlets. Village car parking charges will be suspended by Horsham District Council for the duration of the weekend giving all visitors free parking. The Garden and Arts Festival and the Flower Festival are only made possible due to the generosity of our Sponsors and the Committee would like to thank all of them for their continued support and generosity. Thanks also to everyone who opens their gardens and participates. We welcome you all to come and enjoy the fun!

nyone walking by the Leisure Centre recently will have noticed a beautiful wooden sculpture of a toad sitting atop a tunnel adorned with woodland creatures. www.henfieldbn5.co.uk

JUNE 2019 | Local interest Mr Toad and his friends were formally welcomed to the village at the beginning of May, but how did it all start? In March 2018 on a cold and rainy day visit to Westonbirt Arboretum, Trevor and I were suddenly both surprised and delighted to come across some beautifully carved creatures within the trees, and we were inspired. When the old ash tree between the Leisure Centre and the Tennis Clubs had to be cut down due to a fungal disease, Henfield Parish Council had the foresight to leave a large tree stump behind perfect for a wood sculpture! We contacted David Lucas at The Woodland Centre in East Grinstead, a small family business which creates sculptures for places including Kew Gardens, Wakehurst Place, Marwell Zoo and Sheffield Park, as well as many children’s play areas. David originally started life training to be a pilot but was then captivated by the art of chain-sawing and has now been a sculptor for twelve years. We started fundraising for our project in the summer of 2018 and we are very grateful for the many personal donations we have received, as well as the donations from the Kindersley Trust and the Henfield Year of Culture fund. We decided to have a design which would appeal to children and include a tunnel surrounded by woodland creatures. We incorporated Stag Beetles as Henfield is a hotspot for this endangered species, and once we added a toad, the sculpture had its name! David started work in April 2019 and many people walking past the work in progress could not fully understand why it was called ‘Toad in the hole’: Firstly the tunnel appeared, followed by beetles, mice, rabbits and hedgehogs, but there was no toad. David had done a wonderful job creating the animals, but then it all went quiet. Back in his workshop in East Grinstead he spent many hours creating our magnificent toad, but all that time he was also waiting for something else... the birth of his new daughter! All went to plan and a few days after his daughter was born, David managed to get back to Henfield to add the toad to our sculpture! The Henfield Toad in the Hole was unveiled on bank holiday Monday 6 May by Maddie from Year 3 at St Peters Primary School. She was promptly followed by a number of children tearing out the tunnel! But it doesn’t just appeal to children – local resident Rebecca Stillwell commented on the BN5 Facebook page: “30 years living here and I have never seen something so naturally beautifully made for, and in, our little village! It’s something for the younger generation to look out for and enjoy. It’s such a beautiful feature out of natural material.” From a small idea a year ago it seems incredible that we now have such a magnificent carving to delight both the young and the old for many years to come.

was fortunate to be given an invitation to the preview of the exhibition on ‘Plants and Us’ at the Millennium Seed Bank at Wakehurst. This facility contains two billion seeds from 3,400 wild plant species collected from over 80 countries. It is the world’s largest resource for endangered plant species and vital to maintain the plant biodiversity of our planet. In a rapidly changing world, which plants will thrive and which will survive? And what does that mean for us? We have to find answers to these questions as we currently place too many demands on our environment for food production and materials. I am a keen conservationist and visiting this exhibition opened my eyes on how we need to interact with our world plant friends and protect them. If we see an elephant being shot, we are repulsed and rightly so. However, if we see a Golden Cypress tree in Vietnam, a Chichibu Birch tree in Japan or a Monkey Puzzle tree in Chile being chopped down, is our reaction the same? These rare species are just three of hundreds threatened with extinction and are so important to maintain the biodiversity and balance of our world. Excess logging, forest destruction for extending production of cash crops and spreading of plant disease by international transportation, all lead to the loss of our natural flora population. This in turn has influence on our climate and our ability to stabilise the whole

existence of our natural environment. Wakehurst and Kew are working together in making a huge effort to embrace us in the work they are undertaking on our behalf. This exhibition is beautifully presented and everyone visiting will be inspired to learn how we must work together to preserve this rich heritage before it is too late. It is a feast for the whole family to discover in a wonderful setting. I urge you visit Wakehurst to understand what the scientists, especially botanists are working on. Time could be running out if we do not fully realise the implications of what is happening before our eyes around our wonderful diverse world.

re you struggling to cope with your garden? Can’t see the flowers for the weeds? Then maybe you need to call on the Henfield Haven Ground Force Team! The idea came about after Liz Hodgson (above, centre), who is part of the green-fingered team looking after The Haven, organised some friends to help a local resident who was struggling with their garden due to full time caring responsibilities. The project was so successful that they decided to create a team of volunteers who could assist out those in need of a little horticultural help. The name was inspired by the BBC TV show ‘Ground Force’ which featured Alan Titchmarsh, Charlie Dimmock and Tommy Walsh. Under the experienced eye of Liz, a small group of volunteers will come to the aid of those in the Henfield community who need a little help to enable them to keep on top of their garden. The free service consists of a one-off visit for a maximum of two hours in order to help the individual take back control of their garden. Although the service is free, if beneficiaries would like to make a donation, then they can contribute to the upkeep of the Henfield Haven garden which the Henfield Haven Ground

Force team look after too. Liz is keen to point out that they don’t offer a regular gardening service: “We have many wonderful professional gardeners in the village who offer a great service for those who are too busy or not able to garden any more. Our team provides a one-off visit for those who are still able to garden but, through ill health or reduced mobility, are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start.” The Henfield Have Ground Force team currently has around eight regular volunteers. However, since the launch of their service in March of this year they have been kept very busy. “We would love some more volunteers,” said Liz. “You don’t have to commit to a regular time every week or even know that much about gardening, you just need to be relatively fit and keen to help others on an ad-hoc basis.” If you would like to volunteer your time to help the Henfield Haven Ground Force Team, our would like to request a visit, please register your interest via the Henfield Haven on 01273 494747.

Liz Hodgson

“I wanted to thank you and your Haven ‘team’ for transforming my garden this afternoon. I am overwhelmed by the help you have given me and now feel that I can begin to enjoy the garden (and gardening) without being threatened by the enormity of the task of getting it sorted.” SHIRLEY

Pilates for life Pilates is a practice that enables you to look after your body at all stages of life. A good understanding of the fundamental principles can help you overcome injury and develop a deeper level of control - a great foundation for building strength, speed and power. Personal statement from Ann “I started Pilates with Bex as I had long standing lower back, neck and shoulder issues, and could do very little without aggravating them. Today, without a doubt I am physically stronger, more flexible and really enjoy my Pilates. One of the key benefits is a better understanding of my body and how to get the best out of it (especially following a hysterectomy and double hernia operation). I am constantly surprised by my body’s new capabilities and the confidence I have in it, compared with when I started.

Because I am carrying a weakness in my pelvic floor and have arthritis in my knees, attending regular Pilates lessons allows me to maintain an active lifestyle. I feel more upright, stronger, my shoulders are in a better place and I no longer suffer with pains in my head and neck.” Bex and Katy work with a wide variety of clients of all ages and abilities. Contact them at the clinic to discuss how Pilates can help you.

Kid’s stuff | JUNE 2019 All photographs by Gavin Williams

Henfield FC Girls


early 100 years since being virtually outlawed, women’s football is flourishing again in this country and that renewed enthusiasm is mirrored in Henfield. Anyone strolling past the Rothery playing fields on a Wednesday evening will get a pleasant surprise to see more than 30 girls aged from five to 11 enjoying the beautiful game in all weather conditions. While there is still some way to go before women’s football returns to the levels of popularity it enjoyed in the early 20th century – when crowds often exceeded that of men’s teams – the sport is definitely heading in the right direction. It has taken a long time to recover from the preposterous ban imposed by the Football Association in 1921 which prevented women from playing at any grounds affiliated to the FA, stating the reason that football damaged women’s bodies! But for the last two decades women’s football has been gradually growing and the game could be about to explode in this country if the England team live up to their billing as one of the favourites to lift the World Cup in France this summer. The idea that football is ‘a game just for boys’ has rightly been consigned to the dustbin and the passion for the sport is highlighted in Henfield.

62 | BN5 Magazine

Just two years ago the village did not have a girls’ team with any budding young players having to train with the boys at Henfield Football Club or travel to Horsham or Shoreham. Frustrated at the situation Donna Copsey approached Pete Mowatt to see if he was interested in helping to resurrect a girls’ section within Henfield FC and the rest, as they say, is history. Donna said: “At the time my daughter Lili was the only girl playing for Henfield in the boys’ under-nines team. We really wanted to bring girls back into the football club and give them the opportunity to play so we decided to try to do something about it. “We had no idea how many girls would come to the first session and were blown away when 15 turned up. Numbers have continued to grow steadily and we now regularly train more than 30 girls a week. The majority are from Henfield but we also get some travelling from Partridge Green, Cowfold, Shoreham and Storrington.” Henfield Football Club were hugely supportive in helping get the girls section off the ground while grants from the Football Foundation helped fund kit and equipment for the two teams – at under-10 and under-11 level – that play against other clubs all over Sussex on a regular basis throughout the winter. www.henfieldbn5.co.uk

JUNE 2019 | Kid’s stuff

Another huge boost came when Henfield was chosen to be a centre for the FA’s flagship Wildcats scheme which is designed to inspire girls aged five to 11 to try the sport. Next season the club plans to expand to three teams – at under-10, under-11 and under-12 level – who will all play in the Sussex Girls League and the hope is to continue to grow the section to give girls in Henfield and the surrounding area more opportunity to enjoy the sport. Pete said: “The Wildcats initiative is very important. It gives girls the confidence to learn to play football whilst having fun and making friends, which many of them possibly wouldn’t feel comfortable doing in a mixed team. “It’s a brilliant initiative and it’s great that we have been chosen to be one of the centres as it shows that we must be doing something right. The FA is using the Wildcats to help grow the number of girls playing football and if the England Women’s team continue to be successful then that will help raise the profile of the sport even further.” The increased interest in women’s football will be underlined when the England team take on New Zealand at Brighton’s Amex Stadium on June 1 in what will be their final warm-up game before the World Cup. A bumper crowd is expected after a record attendance for a Women’s Super League

01273 494002

match of 5,265 turned out for Brighton and Hove Albion’s 4-0 defeat to champions Arsenal on April 28. Among the crowd were dozens of girls from Henfield FC who eagerly collected signatures from the Seagulls players at the end of the game. Maybe in the not too distant future a girl from Henfield might be stepping out at the Amex for Brighton, or even England? While that would be a proud moment for Donna, Pete and everyone involved in the set-up the most important thing is seeing the girls enjoying themselves at training and during matches. Donna said: “I think football is such a great sport for girls and I’ve seen them all grow in confidence over the weeks and months. The support and camaraderie between the girls is really fantastic to see. The improvement has been noticeable with every match and their understanding of the game and the way they are starting to pass and talk to each other on the pitch is brilliant.” Henfield FC girls train every Wednesday from 6pm-7.30pm at the Rothery playing fields on Nep Town Road.

Charity | JUNE 2019

Volunteers needed to make it

A Night to Remember


t Barnabas House is appealing for 200 course marshal volunteers to help support walkers at this year’s Night to Remember midnight walk taking place on Saturday 29 June 2019. Now in its 12th year, the 2019 event is set to be the biggest yet, with over 1,000 supporters walking through the night to help raise money for the hospice’s night sitting service. However, in order for the event to run smoothly a team of volunteer marshals is needed to cheer on walkers, hand out refreshments, give directions and keep walkers safe. Sophie Henderson from the Events Team at St Barnabas House said: “Night to Remember is only made possible thanks to our amazing volunteer marshals who act as our eyes and ears on the ground. “We need volunteer marshals lining the 7, 13.1 and 20 mile routes and have shifts available between 7pm on Saturday 29 June and 7am on Sunday 30 June. Any amount of time people can offer will make a massive difference. Whether you come on your own or with a friend, everyone always has a lot of fun. “This year, we’re providing volunteer marshals with glow products so they can light up their section of the course which will look spectacular along the route. Volunteers can also get creative

and bring their own light installations.” Dickie Dowsett, 68, from Lancing has volunteered as a course marshal at Night to Remember for over 12 years. Dickie said: “The atmosphere is always colourful, happy, full of fun and excited anticipation. It feels nice to be part of something that’s doing good. My days are usually full with stuff to do but one night out is no real hardship. Usually we make the marshalling into a bit of a boys night out with a curry at 2am!” Dickie has many fond memories of volunteering at Night to Remember which include: “Dressing up as Tweedledee and Tweedledum for the night, meeting a woman who walked the whole event in high heels and having my photo taken at the 10-year finishing gate.” Interested in volunteering as a course marshal at Night to Remember?

Tax Efficient Planning for 2019/20... It is always a good idea to review tax planning opportunities to ensure you are maximising allowances and your planning is in line with current legislation. Here’s a brief reminder of the key points that should be addressed: ISAs • The ISA allowance is £20,000 • Any income or growth that is generated within the ISA is tax free • You can save your full allowance in a stocks and shares ISA or cash ISA, or a combination of both • The limit for a junior ISA/Child Trust fund for 2019/20 is £4,368 Dividend allowance • The dividend allowance is £2,000 Pensions • The annual allowance for tax relievable pension contributions is up to £40,000, depending on your income • Tax relief on personal contributions is available at your highest marginal rate of tax Carry forward • Carry forward allows you to make use of any unused allowance from the three previous Tax Years, if the current year’s allowance has been used up • If your income is over £100,000, a pension contribution may also help to reclaim any ‘lost’ personal allowance, potentially resulting in effective tax relief of up to 60% on your contribution • Consider making a net contribution of up to £2,880 (£3,600 gross) for family members, including those with no earnings, e.g. children • Employer pension contributions are a taxefficient way of extracting profits for ownermanagers and should be deductible for Corporation Tax purposes. This offers ownermanagers a tax-efficient deferred income Watch out • Those with an adjusted income of over £150,000 will have their annual allowance restricted on a sliding scale from £40,000 down to a minimum of £10,000 Make the most of inheritance tax (IHT) allowances • You can gift up to £3,000 capital each Tax Year free of IHT, or £6,000 if there was no gift in the previous Tax Year. Any of the previous year’s unused allowance can be carried forward • Upon their children’s marriage, parents can gift £5,000 (grandparents £2,500) • You can make unlimited gifts up to a value of £250 each per person per Tax Year

• •

Gifts as part of your normal expenditure are exempt from an IHT charge. A pattern of making these payments should be established and documented The tax-exempt nil-rate band is frozen at £325,000 until April 2021 Homeowners may benefit from the residence nil-rate band (RNRB). This is in addition to the standard nil-rate band. The qualification is that your home must be passed down to your direct descendants, i.e. children or grandchildren The relief is £150,000 in 2019/20 – rising to £175,000 in 2020/21 There is a tapered withdrawal of the additional nil-rate band for estates with a net value of more than £2 million. This is at a withdrawal rate of £1 for every £2 over this threshold This is beneficial to married and civil partnership couples, as their IHT relief is doubled RNRB can be transferred to the deceased’s spouse or civil partner’s estate. On first death, the unused RNRB is capped at the value of the home. This can even be done if the first of the couple died before 6 April 2017 If you leave at least 10% of your net estate to charity, your estate could pay the reduced rate of 36% on assets above £325,000 You can also mitigate any potential IHT liabilities by implementing simple assurance policies written under suitable trusts

Will • Review your Will to ensure that your current wishes are reflected and that you are maximising the IHT relief available Capital Gains • UK-resident individuals are entitled to realise capital gains of up to £12,000 (2019/20) without having to pay any capital gains tax (CGT) • The ownership of any asset may be transferred to, or shared with a spouse/civil partner without triggering a tax charge, so that each individual’s annual exemptions may be used for that disposal • The 2019/20 CGT rates are 10% for individuals who have not used their entire basic-rate tax band against their income and 20% for higher or additional-rate taxpayer • The CGT rate for transactions involving residential property (other than your principal residence), or carried interest, remains at 18% at the lower rate and 28% for the higher income tax rate.
