Thanks to everyone who came to see us at the BN5 stand at Henfield Village Fayre in July. It was a little wet - but not enough rain to keep crowds of local people from enjoying a fantastic day out! We’ve written a report on page 28, there are more photos on our website (henfieldbn5.co.uk) so please take a look. This year we were fundraising for Henfield Youth Club, our Henfield bags are still available in Jeremy’s and Village Care if you missed us at the show. We raised £1,093 for them due to your generosity and the kindness and support of local businesses who donated some amazing prizes for our hamper raffle. Great work from our brilliant Parish Council in organising the event again, with Mike Morgan at the helm. The sun shone on The Haven for the opening of The Mini Haven, a new wooden playhouse for younger visitors - featured on our front cover. We love this idea, encouraging new generations to visit, find out about the Henfield Haven and enjoy the cafe. Please do pop in for lunch or a coffee, it’s such a wonderful place and the garden is just beautiful. Read about it on page 24. As summer draws to a close the annual West Grinstead & District Ploughing Match is a must for your diary. This year it’s up at Itchingfield in glorious surroundings, near Christ’s Hospital. If you’ve never visited do take this opportunity to experience a really enjoyable countryside day out. Enjoy September,

News | SEPTEMBER 2017 RURAL CAR PARK MACHINES NOW WITHDRAWAL OF SUNDAY / BANK TAKE COIN PAYMENT HOLIDAY BUS SERVICE Horsham District Council has introduced coin payment in all of its rural car park payment machines. This move comes as a result of recent user feedback and will deliver greater flexibility of payment methods for car park users. The car parks affected are the North Street Library Car Park in Storrington (Mill Lane Car Park already has coin payment), the Billingshurst Library Car Park and the Pulborough Lower Street Car Park. In Steyning, both the High Street and Fletchers Croft Car Parks will benefit (Newmans Gardens Car Park already has coin payment) and in Henfield, it affects both the Library and Coopers Way Car Parks. Commenting on the changes, Cabinet Member for the Local Economy Cllr Gordon Lindsay said: “Our aim is to make parking in our rural towns as easy as possible for visitors and residents. The introduction of the new coin payment method, in addition to card payment and permits, gives increased flexibility for users, tailoring our service to their needs.” Additional signage and instructions will be placed in car parks to assist users. The payment machines will accept coins not notes. parking@horsham.gov.uk. Heather Pepper

With effect from 16th September the Compass Travel 17 Horsham – Brighton Sunday service will be withdrawn as the numbers of passengers travelling no longer cover the cost of the service. The Sunday and Bank Holiday 17 was operated commercially by Compass Travel without any funding from the County Council. Unfortunately, the fares collected were not covering the cost of the operation, hence the decision to withdraw. Whilst the County Council can fund bus services that cannot be run commercially, there are currently no surplus funds to maintain the Sunday service on the 17. In fact, the County Council decided it would no longer fund any evening or Sunday buses some years ago in order to concentrate limited resources on weekday buses. As this was a Cabinet level decision readers would need to write to Bob Lanzer, Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Highways, WSCC, County Hall, Chichester, PO19 1RH to express their opinions. Andy Warton, WSCC

MILK BABY CLINIC Henfield Medical Centre holds a well-baby clinic every Monday afternoon 2-3.30pm and we now have a special group running alongside it. This is the MILK group, a drop in for mothers who are breast feeding their babies. Sussex Community Foundation Trust has just obtained Baby Friendly Status from UNICEF and this required the Health Visiting Team being trained to meet the standards set by UNICEF. At the drop-in we also have a Peer Supporter, a volunteer who has completed a 12 week course with the Trust’s Infant Feeding Team. She can help with any problems and offer support. During the session there is always a Health Professional available. There is lots of support and help available. Email me for further information, banderson2@nhs.net.

SEPTEMBER 2017 | News LOST MONEY We are trying to trace the owner of a considerable amount of money which was found outside The George Hotel one weekend in June. The money was contained in a very distinctive ‘pouch’ as opposed to a purse, which has an initial on it easily identifiable to the rightful owner. If you think the money belongs to you, please contact Steyning Police station who have the full details on 01273 470101, quoting reference number WSTF/17/07/00145. We have confirmed with the police that if the money remains unclaimed by 30th September 2017, we intend to donate it to HART. Louise Thorn, Taste Deli

ST PETER’S PTA NEWS So, the new school year is upon us and the St Peter’s School PTA gang is looking forward to another 9 months of fundraising. It wouldn’t be right to kick off another year without saying a great big ‘thank you’ for all your support last year and what a year it was! From some brilliant familiar events, like the two school Discos and the Fun Run, to the introduction of two new events, the Easter Fiesta and FieldFest 2017, we feel as though our fundraising efforts last year were an absolute triumph. Our inaugural music festival was an amazing success. Introducing the audience to some inspiringly cool new bands, painting over 100 faces and the breath-taking sunset at the end of the evening were some of our highlights. Running out of food and prosecco wasn’t so great and we are eternally grateful to those who helped us dash across the village to get more supplies! Including the £5,500 raised at FieldFest 2017 we will in total have donated £22,500 of additional funding to St Peter’s School this year. How brilliant, and all down to our parents, teachers, fabulous volunteers, with amazing support from the local community and of course the pupils. Melissa Pieri, St Peter’s CE Primary PTA

THEATRE COMPANY AUDITIONS The 2018 new year production by the Henfield Theatre Company (staged from 4th - 6th January 2018) will be the hit musical, Anne of Green Gables.

For audition pieces or further information please contact the director, Lesley Barnes (lesleybarnes39@yahoo.co.uk) or the musical director, Jane Haines (j.ehaines@btinternet.com).

HART UPDATE We are an independent charity which supports the Sussex Ambulance Service by aiming to provide a quick response to emergency calls in Henfield and the surrounding area. During the last quarter, we have continued to attend 999 calls at the request of the ambulance service, providing care prior to the arrival of the ambulance. Calls attended during the last quarter included 23 Cat A calls - these are serious, potentially lifethreatening conditions where speed of response may be critical. There were 13 Cat C calls - these are calls where the patient is deemed not to have an immediately life threatening condition, but does require an assessment by an ambulance clinician or transport to hospital, and 5 trauma calls where an injury has been sustained following an accident. HART would like to thank the local community for their continued support. None of what we do could happen without the generosity of those living and working in and around Henfield and we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to you all. If you would like to know where all the local Public Access Defibrillators are located go to: www.henfieldresponders.org.uk. We would like to thank Mike Ainscough for the time and effort he has given to building our new website. Anne Pryor

News | SEPTEMBER 2017 FULL OF BEANS CLOSES

LEONARDSLEE GARDENS TO OPEN AGAIN IN 2018 South African based entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE has acquired the 200 acre Leonardslee estate at Lower Beeding, near Horsham in West Sussex, with plans to restore and upgrade the site and open it to the public on 1st March 2018. Before they were closed to public access in 2010, the landscaped woodland gardens attracted some 50,000 visitors a year. They were first planted in 1801 and are noted for the outstanding spring displays of rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, magnolias and bluebells. Penny Streeter is the owner of the Benguela Collection vineyards and hospitality group. It includes the 400 acre Mannings Heath Golf Course and Wine Estate, located eight miles from Leonardslee, and Benguela Cove vineyard in South Africa, as well as four restaurants and a hotel on the Garden Route. “We will restore the gardens to their former glory and create new facilities on site, including tea rooms and dining facilities, as a major local attraction for families, wedding groups and others. It complements our golf and entertainment facilities at Mannings Heath, where we are developing a wine destination, bringing in our wines from South Africa and cultivating on site a new 35-acre vineyard for English sparkling wine,” says Penny Streeter. Katrien Schepens

HENFIELD HAVEN PATRONS Henfield Haven is pleased to announce the addition of three further patrons.

News | SEPTEMBER 2017 HENFIELD SHORT MAT BOWLS CLUB – A REVIEW

RICHWARDS AT THE FAYRE The Richwards Estate Agents team had great fun at the Henfield Village Fayre despite the weather! We chose to support ‘Team Daisy’ via Chestnut Tree House with a range of family competitions, a raffle, face painting for children and a Pimms jug providing constant refreshment for the grown ups. Simon Anckorn of Richwards said. “It did get pretty wet out there, but it was marvellous to see so many people entering into the spirit of it all and digging into their pockets to support the Fayre and also generously supporting our chosen charity ‘Team Daisy’. Let’s hope it’s a bit drier next time!” Justine Hudson

This year we decided to play our own competitions all on one day. We booked the Hall for all day on Sunday 9th April, and what a success it was! During the morning we played singles games, 16 in all, until we had two finalists. In the afternoon, we played in pairs. The singles final was between Jill Flower, our Vice-Captain, and Mike Johnson, our Match Secretary, with Mike becoming the Club Champion. The pairs final was between Jill, again, with Don Parsons against Les Berrett and myself. A close game with Les delivering a very accurate last wood to win it for us. We are indebted to John, our Captain, and Mike for organising such a well-run event. Mike had to rearrange the order of play more than once. His timing of the games worked out just right. At the end of June, we finished our season with an excellent buffet lunch. We presented all the trophies and medals and had a really fine finish to a successful season. Unfortunately, during the season, we lost several of our older cherished members. This means we are now able to invite you to join us. Several younger players have done so recently and are really enjoying playing this frustrating game. We play every Friday morning (out of the rain) in the Henfield Hall from September until June. Do come and see us – any Friday morning – come for a coffee and a warm welcome. Derek Rogers

THE LADIES EMPORIUM AT HENFIELD MUSEUM Our new exhibit, ‘The Ladies Emporium’ has opened in Henfield Museum. Come in and see a case bursting with lace trimmed undergarments, hat pins, shoes, bonnets and fine embroidery and a gorgeous bead encrusted Edwardian lilac evening dress. There are ‘modesty panels’, which women wore to cover a too low neckline, bright purple stockings and bright purple gloves. Hand sewn combinations hang near to a fluffy black feather boa and a white lace shawl sits beside a flowing black lace cape. There are sparkling evening shoes, some with shoe trees to keep them in shape. Some of the shoes belonged to Miss Lucy Bishop, who began the collections that became the museum. The museum is very fortunate to have some original mementos of Henfield shops from long ago. Included in the case are two pieces of shop wrapping paper from ‘Cordery Bros. Drapers and Outfitters’ of ‘Old Bank House High Street Henfield’ and a hat brush from ‘Tobitt and Sons, Outfitters, Henfield.’ For more news go to... www.henfieldbn5.co.uk

LIONS PRESENTATION OF RUG TO ST PETERS PRIMARY SCHOOL

VOTE NOW FOR SUSSEX FOOD & DRINK HEROES IN OUR AREA!

Henfield Lions have generously donated more money for St Peters Primary School to buy Seahorses a colourful rug for their classroom, just like Puffins. Henfield Lions said; “Having provided Puffins Class with a rug to celebrate Lions International’s Centenary earlier this year, we hadn’t realised that there are in fact two classes in Key Stage One. So, we decided to provide a similar rug for Puffins Class. Both classes seemed thrilled with the rugs which give them a pleasant place to sit during many activities.” Mrs Whinder, Class Teacher, commented that it was a lovely rug, particularly because it has 30 bugs on it, meaning all children have a bug to sit on during carpet time. Comments from the children were: ‘It’s really comfy because its fluffy’ (Arthur), ‘I like it because it is really colourful’ (Jessica), ‘I like it because it is big and it fits us all on’ (Martha), ‘It is good because it has loads of animals and insects’ (Rory).

SELF HELP GROUP OUTING

DOVE NURSERY NEWS Dove Nursery enjoyed a sunny sports day! Family and friends joined us for our special day, it is an annual event where the children celebrate the end of term and say good bye to the children going to school. The school leavers had chosen their favourite songs to sing to the parents, followed by our French Boules championship, a popular event with the children. Mini traditional races followed and we ended with our own unique ‘posy race’ where the children lined up in front of a parent and ran with a posy of flowers to give them to say thank you for supporting us!

Our annual outing has come around again, it always amazes me how quickly the year flies by. We set off to Eastbourne again this year by popular demand. The sky was overcast as we left Henfield but brightened the nearer we got to our destination which was the Burlington Hotel, where we had a very nice lunch. After our meal, we set off to walk along the pier and the prom to admire the lovely flower beds. It was rather breezy but at least the sun was shining. There is a great deal of organising to arrange these trips, as a lot of us aren’t as young as we used to be so need the use of a wheelchair. Our grateful thanks go to Mo Michie and Maureen Dexter and their many volunteer helpers. We arrived back in Henfield at 4.30pm after a successful day out which I am sure everyone enjoyed. If anyone has suggestion of where we can go in the future, please don’t be afraid to let us know. Betty Warden

O

n a beautiful sunny day in August I joined some of Henfield Haven’s newest (and youngest) supporters, the ‘Mini Haven’ group, as they opened their new wooden playhouse in the Haven garden. Ella helped Digby Stephenson from The Haven to cut the ribbon and much excitement ensued as Ella and her friends investigated the new playhouse. Face-painting and a toy stall in aid of the Haven attracted a flurry of attention while mums, dads and carers enjoyed a coffee and a chat in the sunshine. The idea of utilising the beautiful Haven garden in this way came from a chance visit during Gardens and Arts weekend by Beckie Devlin and Kate Wilson. After chatting with friends Michelle Taylor and Jo Penfold, the group of St Peter’s mums came upon the idea of using The Haven as a coffee stop-off after the school run, somewhere their pre-school children could play safely in a lovely outside space. It seems great minds think alike, at the time of the group’s small fundraising campaign for the playhouse, a Channel 4 programme ‘Old People’s Home for 4 year Olds’ was being aired. It was all about the introduction of a nursery class to a care home, with some fascinating results for both the children and adults. The idea struck a chord; the full amount was raised within two weeks and with the blessing of The Haven committee and Impact Initiatives (who run the centre) work got underway. Tony Westwood built the base while Tom Wilson and Chris Knox constructed the wooden shell.

01273 494002

It’s small but perfectly formed; giving the children somewhere to enjoy some creative play. Members of the Haven Allotment Group have offered to donate some watering cans for the playhouse to encourage some constructive gardening! Michelle said; “The Haven is for everyone, of all ages, and we hope the Mini Haven will help to raise awareness of the work of the Haven with dementia patients and in combating loneliness. The garden is ideal for the spring and summer months, we’re very focussed on being considerate of the Haven user’s presence. Having the children around brings light and laughter and we can see many positive possibilities.” Digby said, “One of our remits is to remove the concept of The Haven as ‘a place for older people’. Introducing different generations in this way is wonderful for us and really helps to break down the barriers and stigma which can be associated with dementia. There are some great courses, events and drop-ins at the Haven, or you can just pop in for lunch or coffee. Everyone is welcome and we’re really pleased to see the garden being used in this way.” “Martha asks if we can ‘go to the garden’, it’s lovely that she enjoys playing with her friends here,” said Beckie. “We understand more about the work of the Haven since we’ve been visiting and it’s great to introduce our friends to this wonderful place. It can only be positive for everyone.” www.henfieldhub.com/the-mini-haven Emma Osman B N5 M AG AZ I NE | 2 7

HENFIELD SUMMER FAYRE FUN! Image © BN5 magazine

W

ell the weather wasn’t quite up to scratch for this years Henfield Summer Fayre & Show, but the rain didn’t deter the hundreds of people who showed up on the day to enjoy traditional village summer entertainment! Whilst the inclement weather was disappointing and inevitably affected some of the activities, it was lovely to see so many people refusing to let it ruin their enjoyment of the day. Rain coats, wellies and umbrellas were out in force and when the rain got really bad, people just took shelter in the tea and beer tents, both of which provided a very welcome respite, whilst the wonderful Patcham Silver Band kept up a steady stream of cheerful tunes which kept everyone’s spirits up. Although the rain meant that the climbing wall had to be closed for safety reasons, it didn’t prevent the duck herding or birds of prey demonstrations from taking place - both were extremely entertaining and popular, particularly with the children. Big congratulations to all those wonderful dogs (and their owners) who braved the weather to take part in the Dog Show which was organised by the Henfield Lions and supported by HJ Burt & Son. As always, Jonathan Underwood of Hawthorn Vets did a marvellous job of judging. Henfield local charities and clubs were well represented and there were plenty of stalls to peruse and support. 2 8 | B N 5 M A GA ZINE

The Show Tent is always a delight and this year was no exception with plenty of entries on all categories. There are too many winners to mention here, but special mention goes to the winners of the children categories: Erin Lucking won the Budgens Cup, Miss E Brazier won the Richwards Estate Agents Cup, Fiona Wilson won the Triflow Engineering Cup and Harrison Clowe won the BN5 Magazine Cup. Finally, the Henfield Summer Fayre & Show would not happen without the support of our fabulous local businesses and the dedication of a number of hard-working individuals. Huge thanks go to this years’ sponsors: Rushfields Plant Centre; Coles Automotive; Accountancy & Business Matters; HJ Burt; Marcus Grimes; PHB Contractors, and Swains Farm. And the grateful thanks of the village also goes to the following individuals and organisations for their continuing commitment and enthusiasm: Mike Morgan; Nigel Yeo; Henfield Parish Council; Hazel Grant; Woodmancote & Henfield and Wild Violets WI’s; Henfield Garden Club; Henfield Flower Club; Henfield Lions and the BP Guild. Bring on the Henfield Summer Fayre & Show 2019 - only let’s hope the weather is slightly better! Sarah Butler

BN5 MAGAZINE would like to thank all those local businesses who contributed to the fantastic hampers which were raffled off on the day in aid of Henfield Youth Club: A&B Matters; Alan Woodward; Al Baddar; Bedlam Brewery; Budgens; Camelia Botnar; Dark Star; Fisher’s Farm; Hamfelds; Hartleys; Harveys; Henfield Furnishing; Henfield Holistics; Heritage Products; Little Things; Lloyds Pharmacy; Mannings Heath Golf & Wine Estate; Marthas Barn; Natasha’s; North Park Farm; Pinks; Rushfields; Sharkeys; Singing Hills; Southdowns Galleries; Stan’s Bike Shack; Sussex Osteopath; Taste Deli; Tisserand; Village Care; and Wickwoods. There was a constant stream of people visiting the BN5 magazine tent to purchase raffle tickets which came with the added incentive of the beautiful Henfield cotton shopper designed by Helen Boosey. By the end of the day, despite the rain, we had raised a whopping £1,093! We are still raising money through the sale of the Henfield shopper which can be found in Village Care and Jeremy’s for just £2, every penny of which goes to fund Henfield Youth Club.

he West Grinstead & District Ploughing & Agricultural Society are holding their Annual Ploughing Match & Show this year on Saturday 16 September at Westons Farm at Itchingfield near Horsham, kindly hosted by David Exwood and Christ’s Hospital. In addition to the 12 different ploughing classes (including modern and vintage as well as the great crowd puller, horse ploughing!), there will also again be a demonstration of steam ploughing with some massive engines at work. There are also competitions in hedge laying, hedge cutting and welding where competitors show off their rural crafts. The Livestock Show will include a range of cattle and sheep classes including the ever-popular lamb and calf-handling classes with the future generation of farmers taking part. There will also be a selection of other rural-based attractions including the parade of hounds from the Crawley & Horsham Hunt and the very popular terrier racing; ferret racing; clay pigeon shoot; and the Utility Gundog Society demonstration and public scurry. There are the Field Produce competitions with entries being later auctioned for the Society’s funds and the domestic produce stall with its delicious range of home-cooked cakes. Numerous other side shows will include tug-of-war; bale-rolling; coconut shy; sheep shearing demonstrations and poultry displays, to name but a few. There is an emphasis is on entertainment for the whole family as well as education about farming

and country life. There will be tractor & trailer rides around the show and the hugely popular Harris Fun Fair, with their classic rides, will also be there on the day.

There are excellent catering facilities, a licensed bar with numerous local beers, many trade stands and demonstrations and the annual raffle which is usually a sell-out with its many prizes. All-in-all there is much to see and do – with entry is £6 per adult with children under 14 free, it makes a great day out for all the family. Come along, support and enjoy! Rowan Allan The Society has been holding Shows for over 140 years and is very pro-active in promoting the interests of the local farming community, including holding an ex-

tensive range of Field Competitions through the year. The winners of the Best Farmed Farms this year were David Exwood of Westons Farm, Itchingfield and TJ & JJ Binnington of Thakeham Farms, Thakeham. The overall winner of the Best Whole Farm Conservation Policy was W.D. Passmore & Sons at Applesham Farm, Coombes near Steyning. This year the Society are pleased to continue their new Bursary Scheme launched three years ago to assist candidates working or living in the Society’s area and keen to pursue a career in agriculture. The last winners were Kobe Hedgehock studying at Plumpton and Toby DeBaerdemaecker attending a forestry training course.

More than just a Leisure Centre!

B

N5, along with the Henfield Medical Centre and Leisure Centre, are working to promote ‘Keeping Henfield Healthy.’ This short article is a spotlight on the services Henfield Leisure provides to get the community engaged in healthy living. I talked to Simon, the manager, and two personal trainers, Tom Kay and Jordan Gibson. Employees at the Leisure Centre, and GPs, have brought up the fact that people find getting into fitness daunting. However, these three leisure centre staff have some words of wisdom. Simon: “Bring a friend!” Tom: “Henfield Leisure Centre is a community, rather than exclusive gym,” Jordan: “People go twenty minutes early to classes, to talk and chat, which is great!” Henfield Leisure Centre is an organisation committed to engaging with the community. Outreach includes: St Peter’s Fete and sporting events on the Common, to hosting Hassocks LVS, a specialist school for Autistic children and home-schooled kids. Sam, another instructor, works closely with those who have been given GP referrals. Simon emphasised that he aims for a personal, friendly service, and much of that includes chatting to people at the reception desk and helping to encourage those who are less confident in a gym environment. The Leisure Centre is clearly a place that loves engaging with everyone; from the young to the old, from the beginner to the sporty. Tom recounted one of his favourite moments, putting a smile on the face of a man who’d been a black-belt in Karate 20 years ago, with specialised martial arts training for him during his first session at the gym. It’s this real enthusiasm for the community that makes The Leisure Centre accessible for all. A good example of accessibility is the support a

personal trainer can bring to improving fitness. Sammy Bremner, a trainer and member of staff who started as an ordinary gym-goer, has a skill for helping people feel comfortable with the exercise process. A recent client of Sammy’s, Elsa, had this to say, about her welcoming attitude: “I used to think that I hated exercise and that it wasn’t for me. I was terrified driving to the gym for my first session, having not exercised properly in years. Sammy has worked so hard with me since my first session in February and clearly loves what she does. She is incredible; she’s not just a trainer, she’s a friend.” Elsa’s account of the friendliness of the gym seems to chime with Tom and Jordan’s ambition to engage with the community about the subject of health. Both of them spoke to me about the benefits, physical and mental, that exercise and good diet creates, because exercise helps our mental state due to a release of endorphins in the body. I was also told how the social aspects of exercise help combat isolation and loneliness. Both chatted about developing healthy diets, mentioning the importance of long term change and gradual small steps. Additionally, Tom and Jordan recommended clients engage with local Henfield healthy eating groups. They stress that their advice is never strict, and they never impose dieting! I asked the Henfield Leisure Centre staff what the community should know about the gym. Simon said: “We’re all from different backgrounds and can all offer something different.” Tom stated: ““Don’t feel afraid to get down and get active.” Jordan ended with a concise, “We’re fun and friendly.” Samuel McIlhagga 01273 494984 www.henfieldsportscentre.co.uk

good about oneself, I often use value cards. These are a selection of over 80 cards with different personal qualities or aspects of life printed on them. They range from Faithfulness to Justice, Tolerance to Risk. I ask clients to rate how important each one is to them. We then explore those, which they consider the most important. This in itself can be a revelation. Being able to take the time to reflect upon what personal characteristics are significantly important and how these create the person you present to the world can be more than beneficial. It can be really helpful to consider the reasons for their importance and the origin of the value placed upon them. The next stage of the process is to try and plan a way to bring about an increase in these qualities, which are valued most highly. Finding a way to do this encourages confidence to grow and self-esteem to flourish. People who can honestly say that they like themselves for who they are are more comfortable in their own skin and have the potential to form more healthy and rewarding relationships. Having the ability to internally reconcile your behaviour by considering it within the context of your own values, and not worry what others might think of you, can be so liberating. For more information or to book a free 30 minute initial consultation please contact me.

How good do you feel about yourself? I imagine, if asked this question, people might think about their appearance. They may look in the mirror to see if they have any wrinkles, they might take a look at their shape and size and the way they choose to dress. They might reflect on their career and how much they have achieved both at work and at home. But how many people, I wonder, would reflect on how good they feel about the person they are ‘on the inside’? Perceptions and opinions on what makes a good person may vary considerably. Each of us will have different ideas of what qualities are most important in a person. You just need to read some profiles in a lonely-hearts column or on a dating website to see just how diverse these important qualities Please visit my website can be. So what about you? What do you think your good points are and do you think others would agree with you? We all have an idea of how we are perceived by others and I wonder how close that is to how we would like to be perceived by others. Sometimes it is difficult to be aware of, and reconcile this difference. In my work as a psychotherapist, in order to promote the sense of feeling

Don’t drink yellow rain….

L

ast weekend I took our two boys camping for the first time. I emphasise “I” because Annelise jumped on the opportunity to have an evening off while I spent some “quality” father and son time! It certainly wasn’t a Bear Grylls type affair – we filled the entire boot of the car with our equipment and I think I spent just as much time setting up and putting away as we did appreciating the fruits of our labour. Overall they had a great time despite the fact that in true British style, it absolutely poured with rain all afternoon \ night.

I awoke at 5am after an incredibly refreshing one and half hours sleep, rubbed the condensation off my face and was pleasantly surprised to see sunlight streaming into the tent. There was then a strange period of juxtaposition as despite the gentle warmth of the sun, I could hear a very loud and obvious deposition of liquid onto our humble shelter. Bleary eyed, I stumbled out to see that a dog had given us the honour of selecting our tent over several others to urinate upon. Bizarrely, my first instinct wasn’t to shoo it away, but rather I found myself thinking, “that’s a very healthy stream of urine there – no blood, not turbid, not to dark, not too light….”. Don’t worry, I didn’t go to the trouble of getting a sample for further analysis, instead I gently encouraged the hound away from our abode, managing to fall over about 3 guy ropes in the process! What this experience did remind me (other than the fact that dog urine doesn’t add to the smell of a damp tent) is how useful the analysis of urine is for many conditions. Urinalysis gives valuable indication into metabolic function such as the health of liver and kidneys and is a great tool to assess for diabetes. We can diagnose infections, tumours and crystal formation via urine microscopy as well as performing bacterial cultures if required. A

“normal” urine sample is a good barometer of general health, so it is very useful for screening purposes too. Obtaining a urine sample is also pretty easy: A midstream sample can be obtained from most dogs first thing in the morning by sneaking a shallow container underneath them while they are focusing on an interesting smell. For cats, we have special litter (katkor) which doesn’t absorb urine and allows a sample to be acquired once they have finished their business! At the practice we have an array of the latest lab equipment to assess urine. Our newest machine uses facial recognition software to perform microscopy on samples. It can count red and white blood cells, urine crystals, casts and other cells on a urine sample in 2 minutes – it really is very clever! Analysis of a urine sample is relatively inexpensive as well – the cost of a urine biochemistry, refractometer analysis (for urine concentration) and microscopy is only £32. What’s more, if your pet is over 8 years of age – bring a urine sample to their booster vaccination appointment and the cost is only £18. For health plan members, you are now entitled to one free urine analysis per year – we suggest you bring a sample to a vaccination or health check appointment and we can normally get the results while you wait. If your pet is unwell at all, then it is always very useful to bring a urine sample with you the appointment. As always, if you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact us at the practice – you know “urine” good hands with us! No career in comedy for me.... Jonathan Underwood

Please feel free to contact Jonathan and Annelise Underwood MRCVS and Associates to discuss any aspect of your pets’ care at the practice. The Old Bakehouse Wantley Cottages

Persistent Pain

135-137 High Street Hur stpierpoint BN6 9PU 01273 835116 www.sussex-osteopath. co.uk

We all feel pain from time to time. When someone injures them selves, specific nerves recognise this as pain, which in turn trigg ers the body’s repair mechanism . As the problem resolves, the pain tends to improve and usually disa ppears within 3-6 months. This type of pain could be argued to be ben eficial: if it hurts, you are likely to try and avoid doing whatever it is that has caused the pain in the future, so you are less likely to injure yoursel f in that way again. Occasionally the pain con tinues even after tissue healing has finished. Whe n pain continues after this point, it becomes known as persistent (or is sometimes referred to as chronic) pain . This type of pain is not beneficial and is a result of the nerves becoming oversensitised, which means that a painful response will be triggered much more eas ily than normal. This can be unpleasant, but doesn’t necessarily mean that you are doing yourself any harm simply by moving. You could think of this as a sensitive car alarm that goes off in error when som eone walks past (for more information on how pain wor ks, visit: www.youtube.com/watch? v=QUrKgv43W2c ) Persistent pain is very com mon and affects over 14 million people in the UK “Nicki Newson and Sue alone.

The Tender Process

S

ubmitting a tender is common practice for businesses supplying goods or services to the public sector. Becoming increasingly common is submitting a tender for business in the private sector. On a very simplistic level, you expect to quote for a job or to explain in writing why you should be given the business. But more formal tenders often apply to bigger jobs or for supply contracts spread over time. Even if you do not win the work, writing a tender can clarify your aims, strengths and weaknesses. It raises your profile with the customer and helps you learn about customers’ needs. You can find out about upcoming contracts and tender opportunities by building contacts with potential customers and by looking at the local and national press, as well as the trade and professional publications in your business sector. Opportunities might arise through networking and picking up ‘intelligence’ from other businesses. Preparing tenders can help you to win big orders, but it can also be time-consuming, cost money and tie up valuable resources. You should obtain the bid documents and go through them line by line. Ensure that you can match the technical, skill and experience requirements. Evaluate how much it will cost, in £ and time, to prepare the bid. Ask yourself whether the work will fit in with your strategy and positioning of your business. Estimate the costs of fulfilling the contract and whether the return is sufficient. Assess how the contract would affect your other work, staffing and ability to take on other new business. You should also consider how important the potential customer is to your business. Is this a good potential client or one you do not want to offend by not tendering? Try to understand things from the client’s point of view. Many potential clients will be happy to chat things through on an informal basis, before you decide to bid. Do not be afraid to ask for a face-to-face meeting or a telephone chat. You should always raise questions by phone or email if the tender documents are unclear for any reason. Once you have decided to tender, you should decide who collates the necessary information and does the research as well as agree on who writes and checks the bid presentation. Always focus on the client - talk about their needs and how you can solve their problems. When you

speak about yourself, it is to prove you have the skills, experience and organisation to fulfil the client’s requirements. Think outside the box and come up with innovative ideas - from alternative ways of doing things to how to tackle possible worries about future maintenance and staffing implications. Value for money and not price alone, decides most bids. Emphasise business benefits, service improvements, risk reduction, low maintenance, quality, reliability, previous satisfied customers etc. It is about helping to ease your client’s workload by relieving them of a burdensome contract. Information within your tender can be disclosed at any time in the future under the Freedom of Information Act. This gives anyone (including your competitors) the general right to see information held by public authorities - including the information in your tender. Therefore you should clearly indicate which information is commercially confidential. If the information is particularly sensitive, you might want to ask for a non-disclosure agreement to be part of any negotiations. Show you have the resources to do the work and a feasible, cost-effective way to meet the client’s needs, to meet deadlines and to respond flexibly to changing situations. Address the potential financial, commercial and legal risks that could cause contract failure. Give details of your team, emphasise their strengths, qualifications and experience. Clients will expect you to summarise your work as a contractor, your past experience and credentials for this job, to explain how you will carry out the work, and how and when the client’s aims will be achieved. You should explain the benefits and value-for-money of your bid, you should detail when and how goods and services are to be delivered, and provide a timetable. You must demonstrate your team’s skills, experience of similar work and their responsibilities if you were to win the contract. You should explain how you will manage the project and provide details of your pricing and any aftercare arrangements within the price. Be practical and identify potential problems without promising what is clearly impossible for you to deliver. Ensure your tender document matches the bid specification and answers all its questions. Summarise your bid and why it answers the client’s needs. Write this last, but put it at the beginning of your tender. Include a covering letter that responds to the bid


invitation, summarises your main message and explains how the documents are organised. Keep sentences and paragraphs short, punchy and businesslike, use bullet points and headings to break up text. Decide on a consistent typeface, layout and type size - not too small. Make sure everything is standardised. Read everything again. Then get a colleague to read it - for meaning, typing mistakes and omissions. Use appendices for supporting additional information. Have a front cover with project title, date, name of the organisation requesting the tender, and that of your own business. Include a contents page, number paragraphs so material can be easily located and consider getting it bound at a print shop. Either hand deliver personally or courier the required number of copies of the final tender document to ensure it arrives! Follow up with a courtesy telephone call to confirm safe receipt and to demonstrate your personal concern and involvement. If ultimately your bid fails, ensure you learn for next time by asking for feedback on your tender. Good luck!
