Editor’s Letter We’re pleased to bring you a packed issue of BN5, our What’s On pages are completely full of great summer events - please take a look online for even more at www.henfieldbn5.co.uk because we couldn’t fit them all in! It’s been fun to look back on past Jubilee celebrations, thank you to everyone who sent beautiful pictures and lovely memories of street parties, parades, afternoon teas and glorious cakes! We have printed a selection on page 31 & 32. A special thank you to Maureen Fletcher who sent the image on our cover of the Henfield Coronation Parade in 1953, we especially love the hairstyles and dress of the spectators. Maureen said: “The photo shows a horse drawn carriage with the ‘Queen’ coming up London Road into the High Street. My grandpop Skilton is standing outside his shop (7 London Road) hands on hips under the Oxo sign. They caused a bit of a traffic jam!” The ‘traffic jam’ is significantly less than it would be in 2022, so much has changed since 1953, when post-war rationing was still in place. It’s incredible to think Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has given such a tremendous length of loyal service to this country. It’s something well worth celebrating.

Self Help Group

The Henfield and District Self Help Group is a club for companionship. We meet every Tuesday from 10am - 3pm in the Henfield village hall garden room. Starting with coffee and biscuits chatter and games. Followed by a two-course home-cooked meal. After lunch we have entertainment and a cup of tea before heading home - all for £5. We have been meeting for over 40 years and would love to welcome some new members. If you would like to join us please call Maureen on 01273 494335. Transport can be arranged if required.

We are looking for an individual who can work for a minimum of two days a week from April to September, plus one to two days a month during the off-season in this voluntary groundsman role. A couple of hours on Saturday mornings can also be required if weather has disrupted preparation. A knowledge of cricket pitches, gardening and soils would be helpful and some mechanical knowledge of machinery would be an asset. Dealing with the vagaries of nature means things don’t always go according to plan, so a philosophical nature and a thick skin comes in very handy! However, when things go according to plan it is a very rewarding pastime. If you are interested please contact me on 07800 831734 or blakewhitebarn@gmail.com.

Henfield Trees

Following on from some inspiring tree planting initiatives in the village including Henfield Parish Council’s backing for a new Community Orchard at the Sandpit Field and hundreds of tree whips planted for the Queen’s Green Canopy, local Tree Wardens are coming together to fundraise for a new generation of street trees to be planted in suitable grass verges, to continue the legacy of beautiful green streets in our village. We wish to consult with residents in deciding where more trees would be beneficial in the builtup areas of Henfield. We have done the first of some walking tours of the village to make a current tree ‘map’, so if you see us, let’s talk!

Henfield Common Management Plan

In 2018 we received a management plan for Henfield Common. Despite Covid, by winter of 2022 the plan will have been substantially completed with one major exception, which is that we have not introduced cattle grazing. The ecological advantage of cattle grazing is that a combination of the bare areas caused by the way cows eat, pulling out tufts of grass, and the hoof-prints generated by their weight, creates a patchwork of microclimates. Due to the size of the common we could only maintain half a dozen cows for a period of three to four weeks each year. As the common is traversed by the A281 and is used by dog walkers it would be necessary to erect stout permanent fences. This could only be done after public consultation and Secretary of State permission – a process which would take around four years. So in order to create more microclimates it is proposed to cut the grass at the edges of parts of the common on a four year cycle so that, when established, there would be areas of grass uncut for one, two, three and four years. This would lead to a more untidy look, but would benefit invertebrates and small fauna. This would not be as ecologically useful as grazing cattle but it would be better than nothing.

3 Wheel Challenge

Congratulations to local resident Neil Laughton who, with his friend Tom Clowes, rode the 100 mile South Downs Way from Eastbourne to Winchester in 2021 on a penny farthing and unicycle respectively. Their 3 Wheel Challenge took three days and raised over £6,000 for the Prostrate Cancer charity www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ thomas-clowes2. This year Neil is continuing to raising money for the Starr Trust (which supports disadvantaged children) with an ongoing adventurous bike campaign.

Henfield Hall goes Solar

After successfully updating its status recently to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, the Henfield Hall achieved a local first on Wednesday 27 April when a roof-mounted solar system was commissioned and started generating electricity to benefit both the Hall and the community. Sustainable Henfield proposed an energy survey and one suggestion was to install solar panels and a combination of grants, local benefactor help, Gift Aid repayments and monies from our own reserves meant we could proceed. Those few words belittle the tremendous effort devoted to securing such grants, for which we are immensely grateful.

A 60-panel hi-efficiency 24.6kW (peak) system (at a total cost of £30,000) was installed on the main hall roof. Unobtrusive and scarcely visible from the ground, its effects will be far-reaching. Future expansion plans include batteries and hopefully EV charging points. The Henfield Hall - your Hall - is moving with the times and trying to keep up with technology. If you think you could help or contribute in any way, we’d be pleased to hear from you. Become a member of the CIO, be a Trustee, or simply offer practical help.

we all work together to improve everyone’s techniques and singing. Players of other instruments, including guitars, banjos, mandolins and others, as well as non-playing vocalists can join. The sessions are two hours, allowing for about one hour’s playing time, plus a break for tea and socialising. The group gives the opportunity for people with dementia and their carers to attend. Our fees are £5 per session with proceeds to charity (people living with dementia and their carers free of charge) and we meet every Thursday, 1.30-3.30pm. Please contact Tony Austin on 07871 188403 gigaday@googlemail.com if you would like to join us.

The judges said of the project: “Through careful detailing and research into materials, the building retains the feel of the original ‘black wrinkly tin’ barn, while the large, abstractly-positioned windows give a contemporary look that speaks also of the ways that such barns are patched and change over time.” If one award wasn’t enough, the project has also been selected as the Winner of the RIBA South East Client of the Year Award 2022 & RIBA South East Small Project of the Year 2022 sponsored by Gaggenau!

Henfield Bump to Baby is now ‘Henfield Bump to Baby +’!

Our antenatal courses and postnatal drop in sessions are now well established so the time came to see what could be achieved for our older babies and toddlers. Our first baby and toddler group which started at the beginning of May could not have achieved without the support of Henfield Tea Gardens. Mary, the owner, offered the use of the Tea Gardens for this group on Monday mornings when the café is closed. The group meets from 10am-12pm and has full use of the café and garden. The suggested donation is £2 per family per week. There is the option of staying on afterwards for a light lunch. 16 | BN5 Magazine

Walking for Dementia UK

ou may have read about Rohan and Anne Dewdney’s story in May BN5, when they invited family, friends and supporters to join them to celebrate 30 days of walking throughout April. Well, they’ve completed their challenge, with an unbelievable fundraising total! Rohan lives with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), a relatively uncommon form of dementia which was diagnosed when Rohan was just 56. One of Rohan’s symptoms is degenerating muscle strength so it’s imperative he keeps fit and moving – sometimes it’s a struggle to motivate him. Anne saw the ‘Walk 30 Miles in April’ programme organised by and for Dementia UK and seized upon it as a great way to keep Rohan moving each day. However, the challenge snowballed when friends, family and followers of Rohan’s FTD journey pages on social media encouraged them with good wishes and donations, with friends joining the walks and following their progress. They walked through sunshine and rain, some walks easier than others and usually taking around 6090 minutes to complete the mile. The finale was a celebratory walk for the final part of the last mile, from the Downslink car park and ending at Berrett’s Farm for coffee and cake. When we printed our news item in April, their

01273 494002

total was just over £1,200, which we thought was amazing. However, as we print, the total is now a massive £4,055! Anne said: “We are overwhelmed by all the good wishes and support, which illustrate what a brilliant village Henfield is. We are so pleased to have raised awareness of dementia and how a diagnosis isn’t a life sentence; life changes, but all experiences of the disease are different. Ro certainly doesn’t conform! He is as kind and gentle as always, with a cheeky and charming sense of humour, we have a brilliant life and we decided early on to face each challenge with a smile. He was over the moon to be greeted by such a huge number of friends on our final walk, the sense of camaraderie and support carried us like a wave, as it has throughout his journey. We feel so blessed and thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts.” Thanks to the 70 or so walkers on Sunday 30 April, as well as Rohan’s online supporters and donators. A big thank you to Christine, the brilliant baker behind Berrett’s delicious cakes, who created a huge carrot cake from BN5 (and refused any payment, so we then donated to Dementia UK instead!) and to Emily and Kieran from Berrett’s Farm, who hosted the ‘end of the challenge’.

Always focus on the “job” in hand… Poo is an significant part of a pet owners life – especially if you have a dog or an indoor cat. As pet owners, we can become a little passionate about what our pets produce. I suppose this is understandable when you think about the fact that the average dog owner probably has to pick up a couple of offerings per day, which equates to over 700 per year! If it’s not nice and ‘pick-upable’, then there is a serious pet owner quality of life issue, not to mention a health concern for the pet in question! So it won’t come as a surprise to say that “diarrhoea” is a very common reason for a trip to the vets, and the forward thinking pet owner will normally come in clutching a parcel of excrement in some kind of receptacle – hopefully air-tight! Now, I’ll be honest and say that while involvement with poo is an inevitable consequence of being part of the veterinary profession, it is not something that most of us particularly relish getting in contact with. Faecal samples are often essential to determine the cause of diarrhoea, but analysis of them requires laboratory assessment – normally microscopically or via culture. I think people are often disappointed that I don’t dive into a faecal sample with a pair of tweezers or perform some kind of medieval “scratch and sniff” test after which I can pause for effect and then shout, “Giardia”! Obviously knowing the appearance of the faeces is useful, but there is a limit as to what one can glean from this! Diarrhoea is common in dogs and cats because by the nature of what they do (and eat in many cases!), they come into contact with lots of bugs and pathogens which can upset the digestive system. Many of these are self-limiting and can resolve within a day or two, but all too often, the diarrhoea is persistent, or the pet in question is unwell. The treatment required depends on the cause of the diarrhoea, so analysis of a faecal sample is very useful. Up until now, faecal samples had to be sent to an external laboratory for analysis

which took up-to 3 days to turn around. Quite a long time if you are suffering with tummyache! So, we’re very pleased to announce that we are now able to analyse faecal samples at the practice with results in as little as 30 minutes. This is all thanks to a very clever piece of equipment called the “Imagyst”. The Imagyst uses AI software to identify worms, cysts, eggs and protozoa within a feacal sample which means we can prescribe the appropriate treatment at the time that it is required. It is also a very useful tool to screen for worms and parasites in healthy dogs and cats if you want to know if your pet is carrying anything they shouldn’t be. Don’t forget that one of the main reasons to worm your pet is because us humans can be affected by many of these parasites. So, if your dog or cat has diarrhoea, bring a sample to the practice and we’ve got you covered – metaphorically, of course! Jonathan Underwood

Henfield’s Festival of Gardens and Arts

W

e look forwards to seeing you, your family and friends at the Henfield Festival of Gardens and Arts this year on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June. There will be Morris Men dancing, musicians playing, arts and crafts on show, food and refreshments available in many private gardens and community spaces. Whilst in the village you might also wish to explore our village’s Heritage Trail and High Street businesses. Our gardens include large lawns with herbaceous borders and small terraces with patio pots, traditional planting and contemporary designs, ponds and vegetable plots. The owners are present in the gardens so take the opportunity to share ideas and tips from their gardens. If the visit inspires you perhaps we will see your Henfield garden open next year! Entry to venues is free of charge, although some owners may use the opportunity to collect for their preferred charities. In past years the Festival has raised approximately £9,000 each year for both local and national charities. In addition, many gardens have plants and garden related items on sale. Some will be cash payment only. The arts and crafts on display includes paintings

01273 494002

and drawings in many media, as well as photography, sculpture, textiles (such as crochet, patchwork and quilting), mosaics and glasswork. Some may be available for purchase either in the gardens themselves or our community venues. Live music plays a large part in our festival with talented musicians and vocalists performing in gardens and community venues. There will be a splendid finale to the Festival at Red Oaks with the Unreel Ceilidh Band and a bar. Our website www.henfieldgardensandarts.net has all the latest news and can be used to find your way around the village. There is an easy-to-use map that can also be downloaded and printed. The Festival blue booklets are available at local retailers as well as places such as the Henfield Hall, the Library, The Haven and local garden centres. During the Festival our information point at ‘Gallery BN5’ in the High Street will also have blue booklets so it is a good place to start your tour and find answers to questions. Remember that there is free parking in both Henfield village car parks and High Street public conveniences will be open over the weekend.

Driving Company Car Tax Down The popularity of the company car has decreased over the years, mainly due to the hefty personal benefit-in-kind tax charge that accompanies the perk. While this is the case for petrol or diesel cars, the tax position for electric or hybrid cars is significantly more benevolent. The comparatively high cost of electric vehicles (EVs), combined with practical issues such as charging points, range and performance, have meant relatively low take-up until now. However the situation is changing.

The government has announced that additional funding of more than £500 million is to be made available for rapid charging points. Over the past few years, the number and variety of EVs manufactured around the world has significantly increased. Jaguar (I-Pace), Volkswagen (e-Golf, e-Up) and many other manufacturers are producing EVs, alongside long-established Tesla (Models S, X and 3).

BEVs and EVs with emissions up to 50g/km attract 100% first-year Capital Allowances, meaning that business profits for tax purposes are reduced by the full cost of the car(s) in the year of purchase. This compares very favourably with cars that emit CO2, which attract only 18% (up to 110g/km) or 8% (more than 110g/km) in writing-down allowances. Installing company Hybrid cars have been around for a while now – these derive some of their power from a petrol or based electricity recharging points until 31 March 2023 will attract 130% super deduction from diesel engine. On the other hand, a true electric car is wholly powered from electrical sources and taxable profits. So if employers want to provide a tax-efficient is therefore a completely non-polluting zeroemission vehicle, termed Battery Electric Vehicles benefit while also gaining green credentials, providing employees with electric cars is an (BEVs). For BEVs, from 6 April 2022 until 5 April 2023, the increasingly plausible proposal. There is always the very efficient salary sacrifice option, whereby benefit-in-kind percentage is only 2% , making electric company cars even more attractive. This an employee forgoes part of their salary. Incidentally, fully electric vans do not attract compares to 37% at the opposite end of the any benefit-in-kind tax charge. How much tax emissions scale. The percentage is charged on both the employer and employee will save, by the list price (including any options) – it is not changing to a BEV or an EV, depends on personal based on the discounted price. circumstances. The 2% rate applies to both BEVs & EVs (with But I will sign off with this rather extraordinary emissions up to 50g/km) registered from 6 April (but absolutely correct!) example of a Porsche 2022.
