News

from the BN5 area

As always, we focus on Remembrance in our November issue. This year is especially important as it is the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. We are proud to have sponsored one of the Royal Local Interest Henfield’s Silent Soldiers British Legion ‘Silent Soldiers’; our Tommy stands at the south end of the village on Borrer’s Bank. There are three other Silent Soldiers in Henfield, as well as others in Small Dole and Woodmancote, see our article on page 26 about this, as well as Local Interest information about Remembrance in the village. St Peter’s new Head Seeing these Silent Soldier silhouettes dotted about our villages and towns over the past few weeks has been thought provoking. Especially Local Interest after a busy day filled with everyday activities, spotting one at the side of the road is a reminder The Memorial Field that the freedom we enjoy came at a huge cost. The peace they sacrificed so much for is something we must cherish and foster. Local Interest Our cover image, taken by Amanda Lucas at last DIstrict Year of Culture year’s Remembrance Parade, is of local man George Swalwell. George is a veteran of WWII and although he will be reaching his own centenary next year, he always joins the parade and lays Charity a wreath at the Henfield War Memorial. George is very active in our village and volunteers as a Henfield Bird Survey steward at the Henfield Museum. George, thank you for your service to your country and to your village, we appreciate all you have done.

Olympian Sally Gunnell attended the opening of the Memorial Field on 16 September and Joanne Boorsma, who lives in Henfield, sent us a fantastic photograph of a previous occasion when Sally had visited and supported the village. Joanne said; “Sally kindly came to a fund raiser function at Henfield Leisure Centre that I organised in 1996! She met with Henfield Joggers who were fresh back from completing the New York Marathon, and also had a tour of the Henfield Leisure Centre. The photograph above shows Sally with Brenda Essex, Alan Tomlin, Brian Bracey, Rosie Sayers, Peter Besson, Adrian Hearne, Ian Essex, Brian Griffiths, Jackie Griffiths, Sid Wells, John Scott and Trevor Hodgson, who were all active members of the Joggers.

So the scene was set on the beautiful surroundings of the Common with the new pitches immaculately resplendent with a special stripey cut. Both teams exchanged handshakes like they were armwrestling one-another and scowled welcoming ‘good luck’ wishes as-if being forced at gunpoint. The pre-start team-talk delivered by both camps wasn’t too elaborate: “Don’t lose!” First blood to Henfield (penalty) and second blood to Henfield, following which Steyning built a head of steam and deservedly earned a goal back shortly before half-time via an excellently taken free-kick. In the second-half, Henfield came out, teeth showing and went for the jugular, scoring a decisive third goal from which there was to be no coming back for their noisy neighbours. It was a great game to watch with Henfield ultimately ensuring that there was to be no rain on the parade. Andy Smith

THE HAVEN CHRISTMAS QUIZ 2019 DOWNLAND CALENDAR Back by popular demand, a 2019 Downland Calendar showcasing the beauty of the South Downs has been put together by villagers from Fulking, to raise funds to maintain their Village Hall. This beautiful calendar is the result of a process which began in April, when a team of villagers put out a request for residents to send in their favourite photos of the area. The response was again astonishing; the team received hundreds of stunning images showing landscapes, wildlife and village scenes from right across the South Downs. Selection was extremely hard, but the images were chosen to appeal as widely as possible. Bob Rowland, Chair of Fulking Social Committee, said: “The Calendar has been produced to an incredibly high professional standard. It is fantastic value at just £7”. Supplied shrink-wrapped, the Downland Calendar 2019 makes an ideal Christmas gift for friends and family, so buy yours now while stocks last - the first print run of the 2017 calendar sold out even before the official launch! The Calendar will be on sale at Rushfields Plant Centre in Poynings, The Shepherd & Dog Pub in Fulking, Stokes Newsagents in Henfield, Swains Farm Shop in Woodmancote and Springs Smoked Salmon in Edburton.

Jackie Hoare, West Sussex County Council

URGENT APPEAL FOR CAR DONATIONS FROM FIREFIGHTERS FLU – GET VACCINATED! A more effective vaccine for the over 65s is being offered this winter in a bid to keep the viral infection at bay. As older people can have weakened immune systems, they are at higher risk of suffering serious symptoms of the flu that can be life threatening. The new vaccine could see 30,000 fewer people require an appointment with their GP, as well as 2,000 fewer admissions to hospital. Ultimately this is expected to save more than 700 lives this winter. As well as those over the age of 65, the flu vaccine is also available free to those in groups at particular risk of infection and complications,

OLIVIA PUGH We wrote an article in October BN5 about Walk for Olivia in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity, and from this you will be aware that Olivia Pugh, owner of Hamfelds Home and Garden in Henfield High Street, was fighting an aggressive brain tumour. We are incredibly sad to say that Olivia passed away on Thursday 4th October at St Barnabas Hospice. The Walk for Olivia will continue, in her memory, on Sunday 21 October. By the time this article is published the walk will be completed. Our very deepest condolences to Olivia’s two girls Chenoa and Phoenix, her family, Chris, her friends and the staff at Hamfelds Home and Garden. Olivia was an inspiration, we have lost a friend who did so much for this village - all achieved with her enormous energy and dazzling smile. The High Street won’t be the same without her, we will miss seeing her putting the plants and flowers outside Hamfelds in her beautiful high heels. We would like to thank all the incredibly generous Henfield residents and local businesses who have supported the walk, donated money and are contributing to make the walk a success in Olivia’s memory.

enfield is proudly displaying four silent soldier silhouettes around the village as a reminder of the sacrifices made during the First World War. The silhouettes are part of a wider Royal British Legion movement to say ‘thank you’ to the First World War generation who served, sacrificed, rebuilt and changed the nation. The near life-size silhouettes can be found at the end of Furners Lane at the north of the village, at the junction of Nep Town Road at Borrer’s Bank at the south end of the village, at the War Memorial at the end of Cagefoot Lane and on Cooper’s Way. They have been generously sponsored by BFS (trading as Be Financial Secure), BN5 Magazine, The Henfield Club and Henfield Parish Council. In addition to the iconic images of a ‘British Tommy’ that can be seen around Henfield, the RBL movement also has symbols of other significant communities that took part in WW1. Other images

from the movement commemorate those who gave medical support, soldiers from across the commonwealth, RAF/RFC, Navy and munition factory workers. Inevitably, everyone alive today is touched in some way by WW1 and those who lived through it. WW1 wasn’t just fought in the trenches in western Europe: It was also fought across the world – in Asia, Africa and beyond – and at also at home. The war was also the catalyst for many extraordinary innovations: Air traffic control, portable x-rays, sun lamps, zips, tissues and tea bags are just some of the non-military inventions which we take for granted every day. So, in this the 100th anniversary year since the end of the First World War, take a moment to reflect on those who sacrificed their lives, those who served their country and those who changed our nation. Sarah Butler

The Royal British Legion, which was first established in 1921, helps members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families all year round. Their work, from providing information, support and advice to running care homes and break centres is all dependent on fundraising. They are best known for their annual Poppy Appeal which raises about half of the funds needed for their welfare work every year. Last year the Poppy Appeal raised over £46m nationally of which Henfield contributed a fantastic £8,005. Please look out for the Poppy Appeal collectors this year and give generously.

Remembrance is part of modern British life, culture and heritage and it has become an important feature of the Henfield annual calendar. This year, the village remembrance events will take place on Friday 9 November and Sunday 11 November.

Children from St Peter’s School will attend a service in St Peter’s Parish Church starting at 11am led by the Revd. Paul Doick, during which the eulogies for the fallen will be read out. At around 11.30am, 11 children will go to the Cemetery to lay the poppies on graves of those buried there and the service will finish around 12pm. All members of the public are welcome.

Amanda Lucas www.amandalucas.co.uk

The Remembrance Sunday Parade will muster at the War Memorial in Cagefoot Lane at 9.10am to move off at 9.20am. The parade will go via High Street, Church Street and Church Lane to arrive at St Peter’s Parish Church for the service which will commence at 9.45am. We would respectfully remind parents, relatives and carers of children taking part in the Parade that they are most welcome to walk at the rear of the Parade or to watch from the pavement, but please do not walk alongside your children while they are marching. At approximately 10.35am the Parade will return by the same route to the War Memorial at Cagefoot Lane to arrive for the Service there at 10.50am. This will include reading of the names of the fallen, a two-minute silence at 11am, the singing of the National Anthem, laying of wreaths and another hymn and prayers led by the four Henfield Churches. The High Street, Church Street and Church Lane will be closed from 9.15am–9.30am and then from 10.30am to 11.30am (there will be access at all times for emergency vehicles).

Please look out for the Garden of Remembrance in Coopers Way in the weeks leading up to November 11th when crosses will be placed to remember the 102 men of Henfield who made the ultimate sacrifice. Our thanks go to The Henfield Shed who made the two larger crosses which also form part of the Garden. Kevin Wright, Henfield Parish Council

O

n a warm and sunny afternoon in October, I visited St Peter’s C of E Primary School to meet with Mrs Denise Maurice, headteacher at the school since September 2018. What inspired you to get into teaching? I originally wanted to join the Police Force, but after spending an exchange year in the USA I changed my mind. The mum of my host family was a teacher and after spending time helping her in her classroom, I realised that teaching was really where my real passion lay. I was very lucky to have been given lots of fantastic opportunities whilst I was at school and I love being able to give the children I teach similar opportunities. How did you end up at St Peter’s? After my stay in the USA, I returned to the UK and did my teacher training in the Lake District, majoring in Geography and Physical Education. My first teaching position was at Brockham Primary for five years, before moving to Hurstpierpoint where I was Director of Studies. I then became the Assistant Head at Northolmes Junior School in Horsham, before moving on to Barns Green Primary School. Immediately prior to this appointment I was seconded to Springfield Infants School in Worthing. St Peter’s is my first headship.

01273 494002

What’s your favourite thing about St Peter’s? It’s quite unusual to have such a large primary school in a village, but there’s such a great sense of community here at St Peter’s, both amongst the children and staff. The staff are talented and driven, I’m very lucky to have such a strong team. What was your favourite book when you were growing up? My favourite story book when I was little was probably Mrs Tiggywinkle by Beatrix Potter, followed by Winnie the Pooh by AA Milne. Today I recommend that parents and children check out www.lovereading4kids.co.uk – it has really good book reviews for children of all ages. What are your immediate plans for the school? Reading is really key to a child’s education and I really want to foster a love of reading amongst all our children. Part of this is about creating inspiring places to read and we are looking at revamping our upstairs library for Key Stage 2 children. We’re also updating the wifi so that the children can access digital learning wherever they are in the school. We’re enjoying reorganising the learning spaces to make them clear and comfortable with less distractions. You can find out more about the school at www.st-peters-henfield.w-sussex.sch.uk Sarah Butler B N5 M AG AZ I NE | 3 1

rowds of Henfield residents and visitors flocked to Henfield Common on Sunday 16 September for the rededication of the Memorial Field and to enjoy a festival of sport, food and music in celebration of the newly re-laid sports pitches. The field was re-dedicated by Revd. Paul Doick with Malcolm Eastwood, Chairman of Henfield Parish Council, leading the ceremony. Cllr Mike Morgan (on behalf of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal) read the names of all the Henfield men who lost their lives in conflicts. The Union Flag covering the stone was unveiled once again, as it had been in 1950. Two schoolchildren from St Peter’s CE Primary School, Lola George and William Clark helped to lift the Union Flag to unveil the stone, alongside Annette Parsons, who unveiled the newly-laid stone back in 1950 with Peter Collins. Peter has since passed away and his brother, Pat, took the honour in his place. The last post and Reveille sounded and the Standard was lowered as Henfield once again paid their respects with a minutes silence. After the formalities, the fun began! The sun was shining as children enjoyed games on the field, with traditional sack and egg & spoon races from Henfield Guides and Matt at Get Fit. Football skills and the Beat the Goalie zone organised by Henfield Football Club tested local players skills to their limits and a mystery trail through the woods organised by Henfield Joggers bamboozled competitors. Diamond Cricket was being displayed and taught by members of Henfield Cricket Club colts. 3 2 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

Olympian Sally Gunnell took a tour of the memorial field to see the various sports and enjoyed chatting to the clubs and groups, especially Henfield Joggers who reminisced about when Sally last met the members after the New York Marathon, back in 1996! Later she was interviewed by Paul Samrah, who spoke to Sally about her motivations and how she reached the top of her discipline with Olympic Gold in Barcelona 1992 as well as World, Commonwealth and European titles. Malcolm Eastwood presented Sally with a bouquet of flowers. Crowds enjoyed street food and drink from various local suppliers, stalls and vendors as well as a barbie from the Free Church volunteers and tea and cake from Wild Violets WI. Henfield Cricket Club bar was kept incredibly busy all afternoon. As the sun went down on a perfect village afternoon we were played out by local band Sonic Deluxe. Enormous thanks go to Henfield Parish Council, not only for instigating a fantastic community day but for the months of hard work to create the perfect new playing field for the village. Thanks also to volunteers from Henfield Community Partnership who organised the Street Food festival and other logistics of the day, this was a group effort which showed what can be achieved when local clubs and groups work together, including Henfield Cricket Club, Henfield Football Club, Henfield Guides, Henfield Joggers, Henfield Lions, HART, Henfield Wild Violets, Henfield Free Church and St Peter’s Church. Thanks also to the event’s generous sponsors, Henfield Community Partnership and Stoba Group UK. Emma Osman

irds are amazing creatures. Not only are they prime indicators of our natural world, but they also enrich our outdoor lives with sound and colour. Here at Henfield Birdwatch we have been monitoring the health and population of the birds in and around Henfield since 1999 and next year we need your help! The 2019 Henfield Garden Bird Survey is your opportunity to help us gather information about the birds that visit our gardens. In order to compare our results to the 2015 survey we need as much data as possible, so if you have birds in your garden this is your chance to get involved! Even if you don’t know your blackbird from your blue tit, or your sparrow from your skylark, your cooperation is vital to help us protect the bird habitats around our village. The survey process is simple and all you need to do is spend a little time each week watching the birds in your garden and making a note of them. We have arranged a get-together at the Henfield Hall on Friday 7 December for everyone who would like more information on how to take part,

01273 494002

where we will provide you with the survey details and information about how to identify birds if needed. All the data will then be recorded and fed into our database. Previous Henfield Garden Bird Surveys have shown some interesting trends. There has been a decline in chaffinches, greenfinches and starlings, with chaffinches dropping from fourth place in 1999 to tenth place in 2015, greenfinches from ninth to fifteenth place and starlings from second to eighth place. But it’s not all doom and gloom – there has been an increase in goldfinches, which rose from seventeenth to thirteenth place and wood pigeons have gone from ninth place to joint first! If you would like to be involved in the 2019 Henfield Garden Bird Survey, please contact Val Bentley via email at chetsford.t21@btinternet.com or phone on 01273 494723. We also have a stand at the charities fair on Saturday 10 November, so please do come and find us there, see our website www. henfieldbirdwatch.co.uk or find us on Facebook.

BREEDING FROM YOUR DOG what you need to think about!


Dog owners out there may or may not be aware that as of the 1st of October there has been a change in legislation regarding the breeding of dogs. The change relates to whether someone who is breeding dogs is deemed to be doing so as a “business concern” or not. If they are, then they have to conform to various criteria. If you’re thinking of breeding from your dog, there’s quite a lot to consider as well as the new legislation (more about that later). Firstly making sure that you have carried out all the necessary pre breeding checks to confirm that your dog is a suitable candidate for breeding and secondly that you have considered the potential impact of breeding your dog in terms of complications and costs and the impact on your day to day life! This all sounds potentially rather ominous if you are considering breeding from a dog and, I can relate to this somewhat as, earlier in the summer, some close friends of ours decided to breed from their Labrador, Millie. Millie is a lovely dog with a gentle demeanour and a typical Labrador attitude to food – eat first, think second! Before she was mated, Millie had been hip scored, elbow scored and checked for ocular disease to confirm that she was a suitable candidate for breeding. She was then mated to an equally well bred and very handsome stud dog and four weeks later, we saw her for a pregnancy scan and confirmed a “bellyful” of puppies! She whelped on schedule with ten healthy puppies and all was going well. However, two weeks later, Millie developed mastitis (an infection of her mammary glands) and it became difficult for her to feed all the puppies. The puppies had to be supplemented by hand feeding every few hours with powdered milk. Then things went from bad to worse when Millie rejected her puppies and managed to badly injure one of them. Annelise was on-hand to see the injured pup, who had a deep cut to her lip which needed to be sutured. Somewhat predictably, having completed the surgery, Annelise had already mentally adopted the injured pup who was very adept at looking forlorn but cute! As a result I was well prepared when she made her case for keeping the little thing and firmly put my foot down, citing the many reasons not to add to our menagerie: extra space required for three dogs, extra poo to pick up, chewing, toilet training and not to mention vet bills! It was a well reasoned, concise and succinct argument… We took ownership of the new puppy five weeks later and she’s called Iris. Other than a slightly crooked

www.hawthornvets.co.uk lip, I have to admit she’s a lovely dog even if she’s already gone through a pair of slippers! However, what this does highlight is that while breeding a dog can be very rewarding, it is not always plain sailing and you have to be prepared for complications and costs to occur – from hand rearing puppies to a Caesarian with no live pups. With regards to the new legislation, it is beyond the scope of this article to cover it in detail. A good source of information can be found on the kennel club website - www.thekennelclub.org.uk. To summarise: You are considered to be breeding dogs for a business if you breed more than three litters per year (and sell the puppies) or are considered to be breeding for a profit, regardless of the number of litters. Whether someone is breeding for profit is a grey area and criteria such as regular advertising of puppies, the number of puppies sold, selling a wide range of breeds and systemic and repeatable transactions are all considerations. If you are deemed to be breeding as a business, then you will require a license to breed and advertise any puppies and will have to have a premises inspection to check that you conform to a large number of requirements relating to the welfare of the dogs and puppies that you own. Overall, and rightly so if you are breeding as business, there are a number of hoops to jump through. The good news is that DEFRA have indicated that it is not their intention for “hobby breeders” to be caught out under the business criteria*. If you breed an occasional litter from time to time, then the above will not apply, although anyone making more than £1000 profit should declare this to HMRC as with any other transaction (eg selling via online auction or car boot sales etc). If you are considering breeding from your dog, then feel free to contact us at the practice and we can advise you on all the do’s and don’ts from pre breeding tests to whelping and beyond! On that subject, I’m off to buy some dog-proof hobnail boots to wear with my dressing gown… *ref www.thekennelclub.org.uk

s this year is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, we are revisiting the Henfield connection with the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey in London. Every year at the Service of Remembrance at St Peter’s Church in Henfield, a Union flag is displayed with pride on the alter steps. The flag came to the village from a Captain Brooks from Company 68 of the Graves Registration Unit, who played a part in the journey of the Unknown Warrior from the battlefields of the First World War to Westminster Abbey. In November 1920, after King George V approved the idea of honouring the unidentified dead from the Great War with a tomb in Westminster Abbey, four bodies were exhumed from each of the four main battle areas - the Aisne, the Somme, Arras and Ypres. The four bodies, each one laid out on a stretcher, were covered with a Union flag and placed in a chapel. Here the Director of the War Graves Commission, Brigadier-General Wyatt, selected one at random to be interred at Westminster Abbey as the Unknown Warrior and it was placed

5 0 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

in the shell of a coffin. The three remaining bodies were taken to be buried in the military cemetery at St Pol. The Union flag that had covered the body of the Unknown Warrior in the chapel was not large enough to cover the coffin on its journey to Westminster Abbey. It was replaced with a larger one and Captain Brooks, who had been responsible for escorting one of the bodies to the chapel, kept the original flag. It was not until 1950 that the Union flag was brought back to England, after spending the Second World War in Belgium, hidden from the occupying German troops. Captain Brooks, whose family had lived in Henfield for many generations, presented the flag to the Henfield branch of the Royal British Legion in 1953. It stayed with them until 1976, when they presented it to Henfield Parish Council. Today, Henfield Parish Council loans the flag to St Peter’s Church and it is displayed during their annual Service of Remembrance – a little piece of national history in our village church.

The journey of the Unknown Warrior from the chapel at St Pol to Westminster Abbey was one full of ceremony, more usually accorded to royalty. After staying in the chapel overnight, the coffin shell with the Unknown Warrior was transferred under guard to the medieval castle at Boulogne in France where it lay in state with a company from the French 8th Infantry Regiment standing vigil. The following morning, the shell was placed into a coffin made of oak from Hampton Court. One of the wrought iron bands had a Crusader’s sword passed through it which had been chosen personally by the King from the Royal Collection at the Tower of London. On top of this was an iron shield bearing the inscription: “A British Warrior who fell in the Great War 1914-1918 for King and Country.” From the castle the coffin was carried by British military pall-bearers and placed on a French military wagon for the mile-long procession to Boulogne quay. The coffin then travelled to Dover on HMS Verdun, escorted by six destroyers, and then on to London by train. Every station it passed through was filled to overflowing by people who stood in silence and lowered their heads as it passed by. After spending the night at London Victoria Station, the coffin of the Unknown Warrior began its final

01273 494002

journey on 11 November 1920. It was placed on a gun carriage of the Royal Horse Artillery and carried in procession through immense and silent crowds to the Cenotaph. After King George V unveiled the Cenotaph (a “symbolic empty tomb”), he then placed a wreath on the coffin and at 11am the nation observed two minutes silence. The cortège then made its way to Westminster Abbey followed by the King, the Royal Family and Ministers of State. The guests of honour were a group of women all of whom had each lost their husband and all their sons in the war. The coffin was borne to the West Nave flanked by a guard of honour of 100 recipients of the Victoria Cross. It was interred with six barrels of soil taken from Ypres and later covered by a slab of black Belgian marble inscribed with the words: “They buried him among Kings because he had done good towards God and his house.” Within the first week 1,250,000 people had filed past the tomb of the Unknown Warrior to pay their respects. It is now one of the most visited war graves in the world and is the only part of the Abbey floor that is never walked on.

COUNSELLING FOR ANXIETY One of the reasons people come to counselling is because they are experiencing high levels of anxiety. While feeling anxious from time to time is a natural response to life’s challenges, suffering from anxiety long-term can be very intense and leave you feeling out of control. Self-care goes hand in hand with looking after your mental health. There are the obvious things like getting enough sleep and exercise, avoiding stimulants and eating a healthy diet, but learning some techniques to help you manage your anxiety can really make a difference. It’s important to not let the fear of anxiety rule your life and having some self-care methods in place can help you cope with symptoms. Focus on your breathing. When feeling anxious it’s easy to forget to breathe. Take time to inhale slowly while keeping your shoulders relaxed. Mindfulness techniques can be extremely helpful with anxiety and there are various apps available to help you to do this such as ‘Headspace’ and ‘Calm’. Do a bit of research and try some out to find the one that works best for you. Talk to someone you trust. It really helps to talk about how you’re feeling, whether that’s a close friend or a professional. There are many resources available online and both the Samaritans and Anxiety UK have have helplines that you can use if you want to speak someone. A qualified counsellor can help you work through the underlying cause of your anxiety and identify the best ways to manage it. www.anxietyuk.org.uk/ www.mind.org.uk www.calm.com www.headspace.com

uilt nearly 30 years ago and run as a charity, Henfield Leisure Centre provides a fantastic sporting and fitness facility for the village and surrounding areas. You may have noticed some building works taking place recently and this is all part of the plan to increase the accessibility and inclusivity of this wonderful community asset. With a fully-equipped modern gymnasium, fitness studio, large-size sports hall, squash court and childrens soft-play centre, Henfield Leisure Centre has something to suit everyone. However the original building was never designed to be accessible by wheelchair users and those with limited mobility as there was no access to the first floor facilities which include the gym and fitness studio. Five years ago the Committee, supported by Henfield Parish Council, Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council, decided to do something about this and put in place an ambitious plan to create full disabled access to the Centre. Partly funded through income from the Sharkey’s Soft Play Centre and partly funded through grants and loans, together with community fundraising, the building work started earlier this year.

01273 494002

With the construction of a completely new entrance and the installation of a lift, the gym and fitness studio on the first floor are now fully accessible for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility. The building work also provides more seating for users of the soft play area and general centre users who want to sit and chat over a tea or coffee. As a result the area used for parties and events has been enhanced too. Simon Thompson, Henfield Leisure Centre Manager, said:

“On behalf of the Committee, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported this project and helped make it become a reality. Our members have been fantastic and really helped out with fundraising through Quiz Nights and Half Marathons. We love being a part of the Henfield community and we will continue to strive to make your Henfield Leisure Centre a village asset to be proud of.” So, why not take a fresh look at Henfield Leisure Centre, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Making Tax Digital - Action time! Making Tax Digital (MTD) will be the biggest revolution for decades in the way the UK tax system is run. It is being introduced from 1 April next year, when all businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold of £85,000 will be required to submit their VAT Return data electronically. The VAT Returns of these businesses will, from that date, need to be filed from ‘functional compatible software’ that meets the requirements of MTD for VAT. Filling in the VAT Return boxes online or on a paper form will become a thing of the past for almost all businesses.

What do you need to do? Accounting Software - HMRC has recently published details of the first 18 suppliers with ‘functional compatible software’ that meet the requirements of MTD for VAT. Businesses affected should contact their accounting software provider to see if they are on this list. If they are, your software will need to be upgraded to enable you to file VAT Returns from 1 April 2019. If you maintain your accounting records manually or on a spreadsheet, you will need to transfer your accounting records to a suitable accounting package before 1 April 2019 to enable you to comply with the new filing regime. If your software provider is not going to issue a version that will meet these requirements you need to urgently consider migration to a compatible accounting software package, or consider if ‘bridging software’ is an option. Preparation of your VAT Returns - Do you currently prepare your VAT Return by extracting the financial information from your accounting records, preparing adjustments for matters such as Partial Exemption on a spreadsheet (or other working paper) and then prepare your VAT Return? If yes, you will need to consider how the adjustments should be recorded in your accounting software so that the VAT Return can be generated accurately (from 1 April 2019) by the software. We recommend a dry run for the first quarter of 2019. This way, you can address any issues before filing your first Return under the MTD regime. VAT housekeeping - Do you enter VAT transactions correctly in the accounting software? Any errors made on posting are going to be visible to HMRC. It is sensible to ensure that the data is entered correctly when a transaction is recorded. The top five errors I see when reviewing Returns are: • Client entertainment - VAT cannot be recovered on invoices (restaurant bills, theatre tickets, trips to the races) where clients or prospective clients are guests.

Staff subsistence - VAT can be recovered on taking your staff out for a meal to celebrate a job well done or for team motivation. This also applies to staff Christmas parties. Trade creditors - Occasionally a supplier’s invoice remains unpaid after six months – often as a result of a dispute about delivery of the service or goods or the quality received. HMRC requires that any VAT reclaimed on invoices older than six months to be adjusted for in the next VAT Return, and effectively repaid to HMRC. If the invoice is paid in the future, the VAT can be reclaimed in that quarter. Trade debtors - Similar rules apply for trade debtors (also called bad debt relief). If a customer has not paid after six months after the due date for payment, a business can recover the VAT paid to HMRC on the next VAT Return. If the debt is paid subsequently, the business is required to declare the VAT received from the customer on the next VAT Return. Processing invoices for supplies that are outside the scope, exempt or zero-rated for VAT - Care is required when processing all invoices where no VAT is charged. The right VAT code needs to be selected in the accounting software to ensure that the correct analysis is produced for the VAT Return. A quick reminder may be in order of the correct codes – the VAT classification should be obvious from the narrative on the supplier’s invoice.
