Editor’s LETTER

Our May cover shows some of the St Peter’s School Year 6 pupils who recently grilled Mr Nick Herbert, our elected member of Parliament, on pressing subjects both local and national. We approached Nick some time ago asking if we could interview him for BN5, then came up with the cunning plan of inviting some of our younger residents to do the work for us! This was twofold in its benefits - they were able to put Nick on the spot with some very pressing questions while still looking charming as if butter wouldn’t melt, while we sat back and drank some coffee... The results are on page 26. Huge thanks to Nick and the very lovely Michelle Taylor for being so helpful in the process. (More than once we sighed and marvelled at her ability to juggle Nick’s diary with such aplomb.) I am guessing that I join every parent in Henfield when I say, stating the obvious, how incredibly lucky we are to have such brilliant teachers at St. Peter’s. If Lydia, Gertie, Tom, Jansen and Dominic are representative of the children being sent off to secondary school then you are doing a very fine job. Mrs Lee we applaud you. Have a fantastic month, I am really not wanting to tempt fate here, but does it feel as if spring is FINALLY on the way?! Best wishes

Sussex Lamb is a family run business and we have been farming for the past 25 years producing top quality lamb reared traditionally on our farm near Shipley. We passionately believe in sustainable farming and are committed to supporting locally produced food.

Three years ago we took our Sussex Lamb enterprise to local food fairs and events to promote our meat and our very popular lamb patties. We had such a positive response that we began exploring the possibility of diversifying into catering, using my training in catering and bringing together our love of farming and passion for good food. Our dream was to convert a traditional shepherds hut into a mobile catering trailer. And now, with the help of Peter Simpson team leader of the Leader Project who are supporting local farmers who are looking to diversify in agriculture. We were fortunate to receive a grant from the Rural Development Programme. Along with this support and the most wonderful craftsman, this dream has become a reality! We now have a beautiful and fully equipped catering shepherds hut and with more than 30 events booked already this summer, we shall be very busy!

We believe in producing a top quality product and cooking it with passion to show how important traditionally reared meat really is. Happy and healthy sheep produce great meat and we are conďŹ dent that our sheep have the best life possible: We adhere to the highest standards of animal welfare; our sheep are grazed on the lush pastures of the Sussex Weald; and we have very low food miles as our local abattoir is less than eight miles away.

MAY 2013 | News HFC Youth Tournament Henfield Football Club attained FA Charter status a few years back and with over 200 youth players and 9 squads at youth level, the Club continues to grow. It is a big part of local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and grandparentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives on match days! For the first time in many years, Henfield FC are hosting a Youth Football Tournament on The Kings Field. The tournament, for Under 7s through to Under 16s, has attracted entries from across Sussex and beyond â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and is being held over the week-end of Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;house fullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; signs went up in less than six weeks, we have been amazed at the response â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which I am sure is due in no small part to the excellent relationships we have with other Clubs. We have 105 squads entered and many families will be attending. The tournament is run on a group basis, culminating in the finals at the end of each session (around midday and 4pm) on both days. We kick off on Saturday morning with the Under 7s, 8s & 10s; followed by the Under 9s, 11s & 14s in the afternoon. Sunday morning sees an enlarged Under 13s group of 15 squads playing and the afternoon moves on to the Under 15s & 16s. All age groups have a number of host Henfield FC squads competing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so please do put the dates in your diary to pop up and watch the matches (and cheer on our Henfield teams!). We naturally hope the week-end will be a success (please let it be dry!) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we are really grateful to the many local traders that have readily supported the Club by advertising in the tournament programme or providing raffle prizes and we hope they too will benefit financially from our guests and visitors to the village. On site, we will have refreshments including a licensed bar, bouncy castle, ice cream van plus the Albionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile shop will be in attendance. With the numbers expected, there will inevitably be additional traffic leading to parking issues. We will have stewards around the immediate area (Fabians Way, Northcroft, Deer Park, the Leisure & Medical Centres, Youth Club etc) to direct and assist. We apologise though in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused to local residents by the addition-

al street parking and traffic, which we will endeavour to keep to an absolute minimum. Please do come along and support our villageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth football teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as they play with pride and passion and no little skill too.

Fulking pub CIDER EVENT raises funds for HART Fulkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shepherd and Dog pub raised ÂŁ490 with a cider event and handed over a cheque to HART (Henfield Area Response Team). The pub has been given a defibrillator by HART and more than half a dozen staff at the pub have been trained to use the machine. Shepherd and Dog proprietor Jenny Tooley said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being in a remote spot means emergency services take longer to get to us and this defibrillator gives us a chance to act in an emergency before a responder or ambulance gets to us.â&#x20AC;? A raffle was supported by local suppliers with prizes including a hamper from Jeremys of Henfield, a barrel of cider from Downlands Brewery, a leg of lamb from Standean Butchers of Hassocks, an MOT from Coles Automotive, salmon from Springs and wine from pub suppliers.

will be on the story and the characters at its heart, encouraging the audience to look beneath the superficial glamour of its setting. Heber productions are taken to a different venue each night and are performed in the round, with the actors close enough to touch. Operas are always sung in English and the audience is usually involved in the production in some way, making a Heber show a very accessible way to experience opera. Tickets are £14 (£12 concessions) for reserved seats, and £12 (£10 concessions) for non-reserved seats. Please call the box office on 01273 543709 (office hours).

HART news Emergency responder Sandra Parsons has raised £530 for her team at HART (Henfield Area Response Team) by completing two half marathons at Brighton and Barns Green. Sandra, who has been a HART responder for two years, also completed the last two Brighton Marathons. “Running half marathons may sound easy compared to full marathons but you still need to keep up the training,” she said. HART gave a demonstration at Henfield Hall last month with their new display trailer to promote the work they do and attract new recruits. Currently the HART display trailer is garaged in Burgess Hill, but the charity is looking for a more local storage facility. It does not have to be in a building, but should be off road and behind a locked gate for insurance purposes. If you can help, please call 01273 492194 or 01273 494162 for more information.

Heber comes to Henfield On 18 May at 7.30pm Heber Opera brings Verdi’s ‘La Traviata’ to St Peter’s Church in Henfield. Based on Alexandre Dumas the Younger’s ‘La Dame aux Camélias’, the story is of a famous courtesan who gives up her hedonistic lifestyle for an ardent young suitor and then gives him up for the sake of his family’s honour. The lovers’ reconciliation in the final act will stir even the hardest of hearts. Heber Opera’s new production of this much-loved opera will be colourful and exciting, but the emphasis

MAY 2013 | News Woven Inspiration Behind a small, blue shop front in Horsham, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an international fabric designer with Hollywood knocking at her door. This wonderful and impressive event is mirrored by the equally remarkable story of how beach pebble inspired designs are being sent to the other side of the globe to be made into exclusive creations. Horsham District Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Horsham Museum tells these two stories in collaboration with the textile designer Fran White, using her personal archive of textiles, clothing, illustrations and notes. Having unique access to the designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archive is an amazing opportunity to see creativity at work. The exhibition shows how a simple pebble can be translated into a textile idea, which is then woven into fabric at Irish, Belgian, and Scottish linen mills. However, the story doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there. Fran White textiles have also been developed into a range of clothing, some of which will be shown in the Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Costume Gallery. Fran Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own story is also told. At an age when most businesses have reached maturity, she went back to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and turned her designs into an award winning business. This built on her previous experience of her fabric hire company that had been used to dress some of the most popular adverts and television series of the last 20 years. This world came knocking when a recent Keats film used her fabric to dress a set. Woven Inspiration: Fran White Textile Designer is on at Horsham museum until 11 May 2013.

when the calendar girls shed important items of their attire was delicately directed and appeared to leave both audience and players comfortable with the outcome. The beautiful singing of Jerusalem towards the end of the play was a lovely surprise, thoroughly appreciated by the audience. Judging from the audience reaction and the standing ovation by some, the play was a resounding success reflected in the smiling faces as the audience left the venue. The Director, entire cast and helpers should be very proud of a near flawless production. JMP

Henfield Lions race night raises ÂŁ500

Henfield Lions presented a cheque for ÂŁ500 to Henfield Leisure Centre following a race night attended by more than 70 people. The money will go towards the Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new soft play area. The race night was supported by many Henfield businesses, including Woodward Butchers, Swains Farm Shop, Goodsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Letting, Jeremyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greengrocers, Henfield Eye Care, Stokes Newsagents, Stevens Estate Agents, Richwards Estate Agents, HJ Burt Estate HTCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Calendar Girls review Agents, The Plough Inn and The Bell.

In particular Nicky Haines was convincing as Annie and acted with great compassion in an unfaltering Yorkshire accent. It was a moving moment when the lights were dimmed and she gave her speech to the WI conference. She was well supported throughout by the more energetic and versatile character Chris (Sharona Key-Barry). There were also some great one-liners from Jessie (Susanna Seaford) which were delivered :HVW(QG/DQH with aplomb. John Clark (Ken Jones) played his part sensitively and there was an imaginative portrayal +HQË&#x192;HOG%15* of his demise.

MAY 2013 | News Henfield Good Neighbours The Henfield Good Neighbours scheme brings together volunteers and those who need some neighbourly assistance. The aim of the scheme is to provide a link between a number of good-hearted volunteers and anyone whose life would be made easier in some way if they had a little neighbourly assistance.

Cheer up! Come and join Henfield Singing Circle The Singing circle is a gem at the very heart of Henfield. It is an opportunity for people to come together and sing for the pure joy of it. We sing unaccompanied and there are no notes to read because we learn everything by ear (a ‘Natural Voices’ approach). We stand (or sit) in a circle so that we can hear ourselves and each other. The notes and harmonies travel around it, as do the smiles and laughter and there are many ‘tingle factor’ moments too! One singer commented: “To me, Monica’s Singing Circle is the highlight of my week. We sing such lovely songs and I particularly like the foreign ones for example Maori, African and Russian. But we also sing folk songs, lullabies and sea shanties. Together we make the most amazing harmonies... sometimes exhilarating and sometimes very gentle and reflective. We have a lot of fun in the process and I always leave with a spring in my step and a melody in my head for days afterwards!” Come along and join us on Wednesday evenings at the Henfield Hall from 7.30–9pm. There is no audition (though you will need to be able to sing in tune) and your first session will be at the special rate of £5. For more information call Monica on 07788 166173 or email monmaloney@googlemail.com

As part of the day, you will be able to drop in and be shown around the school; meet staff and pupils; enjoy various entertainments; try out our computers and admire a very special exhibition of art-related work in the hall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a must for your summer diary and a chance for you to find out more about education and your village primary school in 2013. Look out for further details on our Hub page - we look forward to welcoming you.

Henfield unattached SWIMMING AT COWFOLD The Cowfold Memorial Swimming Pool at St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CE (Aided) Primary School will be opening its doors again this summer to the children of St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School and local community alike from Monday 3 June. This valuable resource is in constant use throughout the second half of the summer term. Our splash sessions are ably supported by our lifeguards. We also have four pool controllers who work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep this excellent facility running. The pool is also available for hire to the wider community and many summer parties and community lettings are enjoyed here every year. It is also open on weekday afternoons for the first four weeks of the summer holidays for children from the whole community to enjoy. We are very grateful to our parents who support the lifeguards during these sessions. This pool belongs to the village as much as to the school, and we ask for your help in keeping it open. We continue to need to fund raise for improvements and maintenance to the pool and pool area and we are very appreciative of all the donations we receive. Please contact Georgina Masters, School Business Manager, on 01403 864365 for more information if you would like to hire the pool, attend a splash session in the holidays or donate to this worthy cause.

Does just what it says on the tin! Those now alone, who some times get fed up with their own company. It does not have to be that way. Henfield unattached is an interesting group of ordinary people like yourself. Some want to talk one-to-one, others will go out together to the cinema, for a walk, to the beach, etc. The purpose of this very relaxed and easy (and free to join) group is to make new and real friends. Someone you can ring up and say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go out for teaâ&#x20AC;?, (or to the pub) when you are a bit low or fed up. And most who live alone feel like this occasionally. If this applies to you, especially if bereaved, then reach for the phone now to ask any questions at 01273 495820. Or drop in at our regular coffee morning at 11am on the first Thursday of the month. Another benefit is a monthly lunch or dinner in good company at a different venue each time. If you are on your own, and ideally are 60 or over, then this is for you.

JAMES HERBERT 1943-2013

W

e were sad to hear that local best-selling author James Herbert passed away on 20 March. The following is an edited version of our article about James which appeared in the October 2010 edition of BN5 magazine.

James Herbert wrote 23 novels, sold over 54 million books worldwide and has been published in over 30 languages. His stratospheric rise to fame began in 1974, on the publication of his debut novel, The Rats. With writing success came accolades and celebrity more akin to that of a rock star. In fact his writing - edgy, dark and raw – earned him the title of ‘Godfather of Punk’ as he broke all the rules and taboos of horror writing and with it taking the genre into mainstream popularity. His reputation grew from the word of mouth and the ‘punk’ label suited the book well, with its dark, angry energy. James grew up in the ‘old’ East End, which has few parallels with the longrunning soap of the same name. His parents owned a market stall on Brick Lane and James has vivid recollections of the journey to Stoke Newington in the back of his fathers’ horse and cart when he was three years old. The street he grew up in, Tyne Street in Whitechapel, was the last to convert to electricity from gas – the atmospheric gas lanterns and darkened streets and a playground of post-war derelict Victorian terraces must have been great fodder for a child with a wild imagination. As he grew up, storytelling and cinema became a passion. His older brothers collected DC comics that they hid under the upstairs floorboards of their house and his mind was filled with colourful and dramatic stories. James’s imagination took flight: “I had to light a candle and take a shilling that Mother had left on the mantle to ‘feed the meter’ in the cellar on a dark night in the empty house; I vividly remember that slight edge of fear as I crawled over the coal to reach the meter box,” said James. He spent plenty of time on his own; his parents worked long, back-breakingly hard hours, but their absence gave James a freedom and independence. 4pm on a Friday night was when James and his friends would visit the cinema in Roman Road – affectionately known as the ‘Bug’ole’. The dark and crowded emporium would be packed with children who had managed to convince the ushers that they were old enough to watch the latest black and white film, be it a thriller, horror or a mystery, or even a ‘Carry On’ film.

He recollected; “The horrors were the best – if you took a girl she always grabbed hold of you in fright!” His public persona of a dark, mysterious horror writer was one James was happy to indulge; after all, fans would have been sorely disappointed otherwise. But conversation with James was peppered with his gently humorous, wry observations on life and local characters and he was a wonderful storyteller. Although he led a very private existence he enjoyed living in a small community and genuinely cared about local matters. His most recent novel ‘Ash’ was published in 2012. Several of his books were adapted to film and the BBC adapted ‘The Secret of Crickley Hall’ as a three part series which was broadcast at the end of 2012. James’s success was acknowledged in 2010 when he was appointed OBE in the Birthday Honours and awarded the accolade of Grand Master at the World Horror Convention. He is survived by his wife Eileen and their daughters Kerry, Emma and Casey.

James Herbert, born 8 April 1943; died 20 March 2013.

Easter Fun at the Community Church On Easter Sunday the Youth Club was buzzing with excitement as children gathered to search for Easter eggs. Each child went out with bags to search and find several colourful plastic eggs including a prize golden egg. They returned with their treasure and opened the eggs, then using the contents they found to reveal an Easter story and fill in the pages of a colouring book. During the morning we dedicated and prayed for six babies and children which was a lovely reminder of the new birth and hope we are given and reminded of at Easter. As the Easter story was told, the children were all given helium filled balloons to release outside. They were a lovely image as we watched them float away of Jesus rising up into the heavens behind the clouds to be with His Father after He had risen from the dead and met with His friends.

Henfield’s Elaine May has taken on the LondonBrighton Bike Ride challenge and will be cycling this June in aid of HART. Elaine felt HART were very worthy of her efforts; “HART are real lifesavers in the village and I wanted to support them. They need money to train more responders and make sure there are more defibrillators around the area. I cycle with my kids and love getting out in the fresh air. A friend and cycling enthusiast Nicky encouraged me to sign up and I’m now training hard for the event. I sold a watch and bought a bike!” Good luck Elaine! If you’d like to sponsor her you can send cheques payable to HART c/o Flints, West End Lane, Henfield BN5 9RF.

Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Changes (NHS) Following 17 years of dedicated service to the NHS patients registered at Henfield Medical Centre, the NHS have re-designed physiotherapy for Henfield and the surrounding area via the new Sussex Community NHS Trust (SCT) from April 2013. Although the Adrian Schouten Physiotherapy team was successfully treating all the NHS patients in the physiotherapy suite in the Centre, Henfield was not awarded the new contract for providing this service. Now, up to writing this article, the SCT has again revised their decision and is going to provide these rehabilitation services at Henfield from Tuesday 9 April 2013. NHS Physiotherapists will visit the Henfield Medical Centre on two days per week to treat patients who have difficulties travelling to Steyning Medical Centre (who were awarded the new contract instead of Henfield). Adrian and the Doctors of Henfield Medical Centre had offered to share the physiotherapy suite with the NHS visiting physiotherapists, for all the above reasons. However the perfect arrangement was turned down by the SCT! The NHS rehabilitation treatments will now be executed at our Henfield Centre in several different rooms made available on the day. Adrian Schouten and his team will continue to provide their excellent private service as always, and if you are not satisfied with the wait and/or treatment received from the SCT then feel free to phone our private physiotherapy suite at the Henfield Medical Centre, direct, on 01273-495990. Adrian Schouten, Senior Rehabilitation Physiotherapist.

Henfield FC u14s The u14’s season went well in grade B of the Horsham Youth Football League, but perhaps the highlight was a Lads v Dads match held at on Good Friday at Blackstone Playing Field. On a fantastic grass playing surface good football skills were essential so the ‘Dads’ were soon at a disadvantage. Ed Cleary had the first strike on goal for the Lads who then took an early and deserved lead through Ben Griffiths. The Dads clung on at the back and eventual Dads man of the match - goalie Dick Hill - pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the Dads in the game. In a fantastic atmosphere the Lads roared on by the Mums came close but couldn’t get that crucial second goal. Just on half time Tim Franks equalised brilliantly for the grown-ups with almost their first effort on goal. Early in the second half Paul Swaby’s shot for the Dads was going wide but was deflected in off Matt Dale’s block to give the Dads a lucky lead and from here the game ran away from the boys as Gav Hills, Steve Boyle and Paul Swaby netted for the Dads. Isaac Swaby hacked his Dad down in the box for a penalty that Dad then missed. Great work from Tom Law near the end earnt a fully deserved consolation for the lads but all agreed the 5 -2 score line to the Dads didn’t do the youngsters justice. Tom picked up the man of the match award for the boys team. A fantastic occasion that will be remembered by all and which is sure to be repeated in 2014. The match was very well refereed by Simon Brown. Tracy Dale, Manager, Henfield FC u14s

Question Time at St Peter’s B

N5 invited Year 6 pupils from St Peter’s School to practice their interview skills with our local MP Nick Herbert. Over the course of an hour Dominic Beasley, Gertie Cameron, Jansen Lee, Lydia Rodway and Tom Drew from Mrs Lee’s class grilled Nick with questions on education, school life, Henfield and himself. Nick was incredibly impressed with his interviewers: “They asked some really interesting questions and were extremely eloquent, bright and very smartly presented – a real credit to both the school and their parents!” DO YOU THINK THAT CLASS SIZES ARE TOO BIG IN STATE SCHOOLS? The smaller the class size the better because as a pupil you get more attention. But to get smaller class sizes you need more teachers and teachers cost money. Realistically we have to keep class sizes as they are. Unfortunately there is a difference between what you would like in an ideal world and what is affordable. DO YOU THINK THAT CHILDREN IN YEAR 6 SHOULD HAVE TO SIT SATS TESTS AT THE END OF PRIMARY SCHOOL? Tests are awful! I remember doing exams at school and hating them. They put a lot of stress on both pupils and teachers - but they are important to find out how well pupils and schools are doing. When you look back you’ll realise that testing is important. My teachers taught me how to get through the exams to get into university and to this day I can still remember everything I learnt about whales and bats for my biology exam! SHOULD CHILDREN HAVE THE RIGHT TO GO TO

ANY SECONDARY SCHOOL THEY CHOOSE? I’m a great believer in as much choice as possible but it’s not always easy with public services. For example you are allowed choice with your doctor, but ideally you want to choose the one that’s in the village. Choice is fundamental to encourage schools to do well and attract pupils. But if you have choice what happens to the school that people don’t choose? If you have more good schools then there would be less of a problem. I would like all parents to be able to send their children to a very good school. SHOULD THE GOVERNMENT PAY FOR SCHOOL UNIFORM? There are costs put on parents for lots of things. If you provide things for free, it’s not really free as someone has to pay for it and it’s ordinary people who pay for it through their taxes. The Government can help those who can’t afford it, but where people can afford it, I think it’s fair. SHOULD PRIMARY SCHOOL CHILDREN HAVE TO DO HOMEWORK? Homework is unpopular and I used to hate it! But in a lot of jobs grown-ups have to do lots of homework – for example I have a job with lots of homework. I think homework is necessary and it’s a good discipline. Plus if you don’t do the work at home, you would have to spend more time at school! Learning is for you to get a nice job and to have a nice life. IS FIVE YEARS OLD TOO YOUNG TO START SCHOOL?

MAY 2013 | Local interest

No, I don’t think it is. I started younger than five and I think it’s good to socialise children from a young age. School is not just about learning, but about socialising as well. WHAT ARE YOUR VIEWS ON MORE HOUSING IN HENFIELD? 160 new homes have just been built and they are not selling, yet they are trying to get more. I worry about it because houses are very expensive and young people can’t often afford them and so have to move away. Our villages are very full and if we build any more it will change the nature of the area. I think local communities should decide on the number of houses to be built, but large numbers of houses should not be imposed on them. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE SUBJECT AT SCHOOL? English was my favourite subject because I liked reading, poetry, plays and books. I also liked Biology, History and Geography. My worst subject was Maths! DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS? No and that makes me very sad. But I live half my time in London and half my time here in Sussex and

01273 494002

work very late hours so it wouldn’t really work. The pet would be on their own and I wouldn’t be able to take them for walks, so it wouldn’t be fair on them. WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE AN MP? I ask myself that question all the time! If there are things you feel strongly about or want to change you can either ask someone else to do it or you can do it yourself. There are lots of things I feel strongly about so I decided to do it myself. I’m very lucky because I have a very nice constituency because it has lots of lovely places like Henfield. IF YOU COULD GO BACK TO ANY AGE IN YOUR LIFETIME, WHAT AGE WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY? I’m actually quite happy where I am and I don’t yearn to go back. But if I had to, I would go back to my early 20’s when I was at university. I had a lot of fun but this time I would do more work!

Our thanks to Nick Herbert MP, Michelle Taylor, Mrs Lee and the pupils from Year 6 who presented an organised and interesting interview. We look forward to seeing your report about the afternoon in the school Newsletter. Sarah Butler

M

ack and Mabelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Henfield Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next show, is an ambitious one with a wonderful score and big Broadway numbers. It also involves silent movies sequences, some of which along with over 100 costumes and some extraordinary props including squashed babies and a mechanical rocking horse, have been made here in Henfield! The show tells the on/off love story of Mack Sennett and Mabel Normand.

Born in Canada in 1880, Mack Sennett (the king of slapstick comedy) moved to New York at the age of 17 earning his living as a performer in circus and vaudeville. In 1911 he left to form his independent Keystone Company in Los Angeles to become one of the great pioneers of the early history of the movies. He was responsible for discovering many great movies stars, including Charlie Chaplin, WC Fields, Gloria Swanson, Carol Lombard and Bing Crosby, plus the Keystone Kops. The coming of sound, combined with the Wall Street crash, ended Sennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career in the early thirties when he was declared bankrupt. In 1937 the Academy for Motion Pictures presented a special award to â&#x20AC;&#x153;that Master of Fun, Discoverer of Stars, sympathetic, kindly, understanding comic genius â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mack Sennettâ&#x20AC;?. Mabel Normand was a generation younger than Mack Sennett and it was thanks to his experience and directing ability that Mabel rose from the ranks of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extrasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. With her thousand-watt smile and cascading curls she was set apart from a generation of starlets in the silent movies by a whole tabloidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of Hollywood scandals. By 1924 she had starred in over 200 films, directed dozens more and was publicly linked with the shooting of two men. When her alleged lover, the Hollywood director William Desmond Taylor, was found murdered her popularity crashed and never recovered from the subsequent sensationalist publicity. The stresses of stardom coupled with the upheavals in her private life, led to a dependency on drugs and alcohol which contributed to her early death at the

    7K

age of 38. Thankfully her fame lives on in Jerry Hermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mack and Mabelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. HTC thank Stephen Normand, Mabel Normandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great nephew, for his contribution to the above and for permission to use his favourite photograph of Mabel. He has asked that a copy of our programme be sent to him in America where it will be placed in the Mabel Normand Archives held at the Academy of Motion Pictures in Hollywood.

HTC present â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mack and Mabelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the Henfield Hall from 15-18 May at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from the Box Office at Henfield Furnishings, or call 490080. Angela Reid, Director

Osteoporosis…

a path to prevention

M

any people dismiss Osteoporosis as something that only older people need to worry about. Actually, we should all be acting to try and prevent it developing now. Osteoporosis is a ‘silent disease’ – it has no symptoms and the first indication that you may have Osteoporosis maybe a broken wrist. This often occurs in middle-aged women who have simply put out their arm to break a fall. According to the National Osteoporosis Society, each year there are 8.9 million Osteoporotic fractures reported worldwide despite it being largely preventable. And this is only the tip of the iceberg. It is also reported that only a third of all spinal Osteoporotic fractures actually come to clinical attention - this is a very worrying and alarming worldwide statistic. It will probably stop you in your tracks to know that British women have a 50% chance of developing the disease. And although it is more common in women, one in five British men over fifty are also at risk of suffering from the condition. As we age, our bones become thinner and weaker. However, an actual diagnosis of Osteoporosis is given when the bone-mass falls to a level at which a fracture (usually a broken wrist, spinal or hip fracture), is likely to occur. As well as the risk of a bone fracture, Osteoporosis also contributes to height loss, curvature of the spine and changes in body shape. A vertebral spinal fracture can cause severe back pain, reduced lung capacity creating shortage of breath and also sleep problems. These symptoms may then lead to even further reduced bone density and more fractures. In the UK we have more than our fair share of cases thanks to our great British weather! A lack of exposure to sunlight causes many of us to suffer from a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D helps the absorption of calcium which is vital for maintaining our bone mass. So, besides moving to Florida, what can we do? Here

01273 494002

are my recommendations for proactively maintaining strong and healthy bones: • Eat calcium rich foods, including dairy, spinach, almonds, dried fruit and tofu. • Get your sunshine quota – 15 minutes in the sun, two or three times per week. • Reduce protein consumption – it makes the body acidic and drains it of calcium. • Cut your salt intake - it is thought to speed up the loss of calcium. • Keep active! The NHS recommendation is to do at least two and a half hours of regular weight-bearing exercise a week. This can include a variety of activities such as brisk walking, running, golf, tennis, weight training, or my favourite exercise Pilates! As an APPI (Australian Physiotherapy Pilates Institute) presenter and Pilates teacher I am passionate about the important role that Pilates can play in the prevention of this disease. The APPI have recently launched their 12-step bone building program to specifically help defend against Osteoporosis. It actively promotes Pilates in standing positions to provide important weight-bearing exercises for the hips, pelvis and spine and also to improve your balance. Light-weight dumbbells and ‘thera-bands’ are also added to help strengthen the wrists and upper limbs. The program also promotes improved posture and specific exercises to strengthen the back when Osteoporosis has already been diagnosed. Spinal mobility exercises are also included.

If you’d like to learn more about the APPi bone health program, I’d love to hear from you. Contact me on Henfield 495911 to discuss or visit my website www. lizmarkspilates.co.uk for more details. Liz Marks

T

he Dogs Trust has been helping to give stray and abandoned dogs a happy home at its Shoreham centre for 25 years. The charity (formerly the National Canine Defence League), was founded 122 years ago in 1891 and is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. I talked to Naomi Tucker at the centre to find about more about the charity and the invaluable work it does.

Every year the charity cares for around 16,000 dogs at their network of 18 rehoming centres around the UK. The Shoreham Centre is currently looking after 70 dogs, 30 of which are viewable in the re-homing section. “We take dogs from Local Authorities, from transfers from other parts of the country or as handovers from members of the public,” explained Naomi. “We are lucky here in West Sussex in that we don’t often see cases of horrendous cruelty, but the dogs that come to us have often been abandoned and so are malnourished and may have a nervous or frightened temperament.” Once the dog has had a couple of days to get used to the centre, their physical condition is assessed by the vet and their psychological condition is assessed by the behaviourist and trainer. This involves seeing how they respond to traffic, being on a lead, sharing with other dogs and it helps decide what type of home the dog would be best suited to. The process of finding new homes for the dogs in their care is very thorough and starts with a home-finding questionnaire for prospective owners as Naomi explained: “We try to get the match between dogs and owners as perfect as possible and so we need to find out as much as possible. For example we need to know how many hours a day prospective owners work, how many hours exercise they can realistically give and who else is in the home. We won’t let people rehome a dog who we think is incompatible with their

01273 494002

lifestyle or home.” Once a suitable dog is identified, the prospective owners can then take it for a walk and introduce it to any other family members or existing dogs in the home. If this goes well then the dog can go for a home visit. If everyone is still happy, then the last stage of the process is a preadoption talk and some paperwork. “We do charge a £90 adoption fee, but as the dogs are neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated and go to their new home with one week’s food and four weeks pet insurance, we think it is pretty good value!” said Naomi. “Plus we offer advice and support whenever you need it for the duration of the dog’s life. Hopefully the dog will be able to stay with its new owners, but if something does go wrong, we will always take the dog back.” Rehoming dogs is just one aspect of the work of Dogs Trust: They also run subsidised neutering campaigns in areas of the UK with the most acute stray dog problems; their Freedom Project helps pet owners who are fleeing domestic violence by fostering their pets until they are able to start a new life; and their Hope Project gives preventative vetinary care to homeless people’s pets.

As a charity, all of this work is only possible through the generous donations of the public and fundraising events such as their ever-popular Family Open Day (which this year is taking place on Sunday 26 May – see this month’s news section for more information). There are many ways in which you can help the Dogs Trust give a dog a home - see www.dogstrust.org or call 01273 452576 to find out more. Sarah Butler

ue Willis John and S ving Henfield 31 years servin

F

amiliar Henfield faces John and Sue Willis retired earlier this year after owning and running successful businesses in the village for 31 years. They have handed over the reins of Village Care to the very capable Tina Hoad (pictured above centre) who is now putting her own personality on this most useful of village shops. John moved to the village in 1972 and he’s seen some changes to the high street since then. A pharmacist by trade, John ran a business in Worthing from 1968-1996 and it was a natural progression to start a non-dispensing pharmacy in his home village. Village Care opened its doors in June 1982, the month the Falklands War ended. After John sold the Worthing pharmacy in 1996 he and Sue decided to open another shop in Henfield, this time selling gifts. They launched a competition for people to come forward with a name – and Top Shelf was the winner. Five years later they took over what was then Giblertravel with a business partner – two independent travel agencies, one in Henfield and one in Hassocks. It became Downs Travel. Sue’s background in computing and John’s understanding of customer services helped in the agencies’ success and they became renowned for their knowledge of the cruise market. They sold Downs Travel to Bath Travel in 2006 and the Henfield branch was closed in 2010. At one point John and Sue ran four shops which takes a huge amount of hard work and organisational skill. Keeping stock attractive and current was key to the success of Top Shelf, while a broad depth of quality products at the right prices is exactly what Village Care thrives on. John and Sue didn’t sit still with their business – seeking out the latest in gifts and trends at Harrogate and Birmingham gift shows each year. Although Top Shelf always seemed to have the most tasteful and beautiful gifts, John retold the story of a salesman who one season convinced him to take on a few of his hottest products, the infamous Billy Bass – a wall mounted plaque of an animatronic fish that sang.

01273 494002

John was pleased to be proven wrong when Billy Bass became a runaway success! More tasteful and successful product lines include their range of Belgian chocolates, which are still available at Village Care. It took some time to find the right supplier (it’s hard to be sympathetic to that research task!). The one they have chosen is a small independent producer and customers return again and again. John and Sue have always had the loyalty and respect of a group of very long-serving staff, one member had worked for them for 20 years! Tina Hoad, the new proprietor of Top Shelf, was with them for 17 years and two other current members of Tina’s staff have worked for them for ten years each. John is always very supportive of the wider village community. He was involved with Henfield Enterprise when it was active in the village, the three shops participated in some really successful Christmas evenings over the years. He was integral to the ‘Fantastic no Plastic’ drive to reduce the use of plastic bags in the village. A keen environmentalist, John and Sue work with the Henfield Conservation group to maintain beauty spots around Henfield. They are also keen birdwatchers and supportive of the very important Parish Bird Survey run by Henfield Bird Watch. Sue became ill with breast cancer in 1995 and has had several periods of treatment. Although the disease returned again five years ago, Sue is very healthy and pleased to say that her treatment was successful. Alongside two friends she set up ‘Bosom Pals’, a local support group for those undergoing or recovering from treatment. The group still meet and help others in similar circumstances. Sue and John have plenty to look forward to in their retirement, from seeing more of their three children and visiting family in Australia and Mauritius to enjoying their garden and spending more time in the great outdoors. We wish them well and say a very big ‘thank you’ for all that they’ve done for Henfield over the years.

Relevant Life Policy B

usiness owners can potentially now treat life insurance as an expense through a ‘Relevant Life Policy’. As it is classed as a death-in-service plan there are no tax implications for the employee even though the employer is paying the premiums, for example the employee pays no income tax and national insurance on this benefit.

Technically, for those who are interested, it is set up under the provisions of Section 393B(4) of the Income Tax (Earnings and Pensions) Act 2003. To add to the tax-saving the employer will be normally be able to claim the premium as a business expense and therefore pay no corporation tax on the premiums. Also, unlike certain other employer paid for life insurance, the lump sum paid out on death will not be added to your lifetime allowance for pension purposes. This means a Relevant Life Policy has a big advantage over death-in-service in a registered pension scheme if you have significant pension funds and are close to the lifetime limit. In short, the tax benefit of writing life insurance as a Relevant Life Policy can be huge as this example shows. Let’s assume you have a £100 per month life insurance premium. If you pay for it yourself out of net income and you are a 40% taxpayer, your company will have paid you £172.40 gross (with £69 income tax and £3.40 national insurance deducted). The company will then have paid £23.80 employers national insurance on this, giving it a total gross cost of £196.20. After 20% corporation tax relief of £39.20 the net cost to the company is £157. But if you take out a Relevant Life Policy with the company paying the £100 premium, the company obtains 20% corporation tax relief of £20, and the net cost is only £80. The net cost of the premium has nearly halved! This can make it worth re-writing existing personal life insurance policies so that they can become relevant life policies even if they were written relatively

2013 Budget Review

he economic news continues to be bad and George Osborne’s fourth, and probably most challenging Budget delivered few surprises from a tax viewpoint. The focus was largely on supporting enterprise and innovation, and continuing the assault on “aggressive” tax avoidance.

Individuals

1. Income Tax Personal Allowances (PA) The promised increase in the PA to £10,000 will apply from 6 April 2014, a year ahead of the earlier plans to introduce this by the end of the current Parliament. This is expected to take a further 257,000 people with low incomes out of Income Tax altogether. However, where that income is from a single job there may still be employee’s National Insurance (NI) payable as the threshold at which NI becomes due has not been announced but has generally been lower than the tax PA. While taking those at the lower end of the income scale out of the Income Tax net is good news, those higher up the income levels may not see the full benefit or indeed any benefit. The basic rate band that applies before the 40% rate is reached is being squeezed, so that the income level at which someone will become a higher rate taxpayer in 2014/15 at £41,865 is only marginally above the figure of £41,450 for 2013/14 and is actually lower than the figure for any of the three years before that! There are also some 470,000 taxpayers who are expected to be worse off, although only by around £50 per year on average, from the combined change in the PA and basic rate band. Anyone with income of over £120,000 will not be entitled to any PA, but will suffer from having more of their income taxed at 40%. 2. Abolition of 10% Starting Rate At the same time as increasing the PA to £10,000 from 6 April 2014, the 10% starting rate tax band on investment income (currently on the first current £2,710 of income above the PA) will be abolished. This will affect individuals whose main source of income is from bank interest, who will have the income in this band taxed at 20% instead of the current 10% unless covered by the increased PA. The £10,000 PA fulfils an often repeated promise by the Coalition Government. It takes us nearer to the level at which the higher Age Allowance for those over 65 will disappear as the main PA reaches the current age allowance level. That will be a simplification for those affected as also is the abolition of the 10% band. Both measures may particularly affect the elderly whose tax affairs can be unduly complicated for those on at best modest incomes. 3. Inheritance Tax (IHT) The Chancellor has announced a further extension to the period over which the IHT nil rate band is to be

frozen at the current figure of £325,000. This will now remain unchanged until at least 5 April 2018. This is at least in part tied in with more recent proposals for a cap on the level of care costs that any individual will be expected to bear. From April 2016 that cap will be set at £72,000. The changes in funding of care costs, previously announced, will be welcome to many who might otherwise be worried about how such costs would be funded. The freezing of the nil rate band will be less welcome but is expected to affect only about 5,000 estates per year. There is of course still much planning possible with regard to potential future IHT liabilities and with the transfer of nil rate bands between married couples and civil partners a couple can pass on £650,000 before there is any actual tax liability. While UK domiciled spouses can transfer assets between them without any IHT issues that is not the case where the donee spouse is not domiciled in the UK. In that situation there is currently just a £55,000 lifetime exemption and any gifts beyond that have IHT consequences. This limit has been unchanged for many years (since the nil rate band was £55,000) and is now to be increased to £325,000. In addition there will now be an opportunity for the non domiciled spouse to elect to be treated as if domiciled. These are welcome changes for those affected and will help with the transfer of assets between a couple either on death or in lifetime without creating unwanted tax charges. It is still the case that gifts to a non-domiciled spouse or civil partner require more thought and care than to a UK domiciliary and the new election will not be right for everyone’s circumstances.

Companies

1.Corporation Tax The widely predicted reduction in the headline rate of corporation tax to 20% (from April 2015), and simultaneous abolition of the differential rate for companies with small profits, is not only a welcome boost to the UK’s fiscal competitiveness, but also removes a long standing anachronism in the tax code, simplifying tax compliance for large numbers of smaller companies and groups with taxable profits between £300,000 and £1.5m. 2. Employee shareholder status It had been announced that, provided individuals were happy to give up their employment rights in relation to unfair dismissal, redundancy, flexible working and time off for training and agree to give twice the amount of notice than normal of a date of return from maternity leave, they could receive shares with a value of between £2,000 and £50,000 which would be exempt from Capital Gains Tax (CGT) on a subsequent sale. This announcement was criticised on the grounds of complexity on recruitment and potential for arguments on termination. The original proposal also did not address the up front Income Tax and, in some cases, NI charges that the employee would suffer as a result of being given shares for free.

MAY 2013 | Business The Chancellor has now announced that, with effect from 1 September, the first £2,000 of share value received is free from Income Tax and NICs. Whilst a tax and NI exemption is welcome, the level of the exemption is very low. In a start-up situation, this may be adequate to allow the required number of shares to be awarded to key employees as part of the package to attract them to work in a new business. However, for an established business, it will still be very difficult to award shares to an employee without an Income Tax charge. Also, most employees will not be using their CGT Annual Exemption of £10,600, so the capital gain made on shares will be partially exempt anyway; to gain a further exemption at the cost of lost employment rights may not be attractive to them. 3. National Insurance: £2,000 employment allowance The Government will introduce an allowance of £2,000 per year for all businesses and charities to be offset against their employer’s NI liability from April 2014. To keep it simple, the £2,000 allowance is being provided to all employers instead of just SMEs, so this could be a very costly policy for the Treasury. The Revenue will also need to think long and hard about how this will fit in with the Real Time Information regime now being introduced and also how they will deal with single employers with multiple payroll schemes (i.e. will a group of 50 companies with 50 separate PAYE schemes be able to claim £100,000 of benefit?).
