Revealed: The £35m plan for Patcham Court Farm EXCLUSIVE by Emma Hobley @emma_hob

Difficult to discern - amid the ramshackle, near-derelict buildings of what used to be Patcham Court Farm - lies a community asset of remarkable potential. Within sight of the South

Downs and within earshot of the A27, any visitor who happens to stumble across it is surprised by the enormity of what is possible. Not John Cook. He is the community liaison officer of Patcham Community Association, a charity that was formed in 1945 and has deep roots in the area. Mr Cook has worked for the best part of a year on proposals that today are being unveiled for

the first time. The proposals, which from today are the subject of a wideranging public consultation, envisage a 120-bedroom hotel, a 25-metre swimming pool, and a 300-seat community theatre. All of it is aimed at restoring neglected land in the village on the outskirts of the city.  But the vision – with a price tag of £35 million - is much more than bricks and mortar, and concrete, and car-parking. “The residents of Patcham have been deprived of community investment for far too long,” Mr Cook said, in an exclusive interview with Brighton & Hove Independent. “With their support, this vision can become a reality.” A study is being funded by the government-supported Social Investment Business Group,

Artists' open houses

The 2014 Artists' Open Houses festival - the biggest event of its kind in the country - will take place in the city and beyond over the four weekends, starting on Saturday, May 3. More than 200 houses and studio spaces will open their doors to exhibit the work of more than 1,000 artists and makers. The houses are grouped into 14 trails around different areas of the city, each with its own unique character and atmosphere - from the fisherman’s houses of Hanover to the urban warehouse spaces of the North Laine and the cottages of the South Downs village of Ditchling. Jonny Hannah (top right), the award-winning Illustrator, is the cover artist for the 2014 Artists Open Houses festival brochure (top left). Also pictured are examples of some of the work you can see during next month's festival. For more information, visit: www.aoh.org.uk

Wealthy donor helps fund Labour office Josh Arghiros - the millionaire property developer behind the city's doomed £290 million King Alfred Centre re-development - is helping to fund new offices for Brighton and Hove District Labour Party. Mr Arghiros, who lives in London, has given £10,000 - even though he is not a supporter - because of his longstanding admiration for Peter Kyle, the party's parliamentary candidate in Hove. The gift to the city party along with another £10,000 donation from a Ms Susan Ruddick, someone unknown to many senior Labour figures in the city - is helping to fund new party offices at 99 Church Road, Hove. The offices (pictured) - with an asking rent of £26,000 a year - are headquarters for the citywide party, which has left its accommodation in the nearby offices of the GMB trade union. Coincidentally, Mike Holland, another millionaire property developer, discloses today he also plans to back Labour (see page 11).

The donation from Josh Arghiros to Brighton and Hove District Labour Party has helped pay for 99 Church Road - where Peter Kyle (inset), the Labour candidate for Hove, is based

Yesterday, in an exclusive interview, Mr Arghiros said: “I am doing it because of Peter Kyle. I really trust him. He is a good, good guy. If he had been a Conservative, I would still support him.” He added that he had previously been "quite close" to Labour Party councillors, but that he no longer envisaged

developing projects in Brighton and Hove: "Not until they get a grip and get some leadership. It’s not a city you can do business in." Many commentators believe that Labour’s dogged support for Mr Arghiros’s ambitious proposals of King Alfred Centre contributed to the party losing the city council elections in 2007.

"Brighton and Hove Connected" is a citywide strategic partnership that brings together representatives from many major organisations, including the council, the universities, businesses, and community groups. The phrase "connected city" reflects how so much of what our city does is through our connections, including business links between the digital and creative sectors, and transport links to our city region and London.  Every four years, this strategic partnership draws up a plan for the coming period, setting out how we will all work together and tackle key issues for Brighton and Hove. We all have different but

It is not often that I pay tribute to a government success, but fairness demands no less. The current government has increased homelessness by 1,075% since 2010. None of those namby-pamby targets to reduce homelessness, so beloved of New Labour. Many of the homeless will be people who have been sanctioned, lost their job, refugees, migrant workers, women fleeing domestic violence. All are the new deserving poor who - in Osborne’s phrase consider homelessness a lifestyle choice. It would be churlish to leave out of the congratulations one Mike Weatherley, ex-property developer and Conservative MP for Hove, who successfully introduced a bill criminalising squatting. It has already led to one documented death - and probably many more. It is a sad indictment of society that it prefers homes to remain empty - often for months, if not years - rather than have people living in them. The police, who do their best to avoid prosecutions for domestic violence or sexual assault, are eager to turf out anyone caught sleeping or living in a property company’s empty property. Housing is a basic human need. Everyone is, or should be, entitled to a roof over their head. When I first rented a bedsit, over 40 years ago, the weekly rent was £3.25. It was controlled. I had security of tenure so that I would not have to move at the whim of a landlord. Housing was not seen as the road to personal fortunes. Margaret Thatcher changed all that with two housing acts. The Right to Buy Act of 1980 gave council tenants the right to buy the house they lived in at a discount. Its consequences have been disastrous. Councils could no longer house people on their waiting lists, because social housing declined. They ended up having to place those in emergency need in bed-andbreakfast accommodation - thus costing more, not less. About onethird of council houses that were sold off are now owned by private landlords, because - when interest rates rose - the mortgage payments could not be met. What made it worse was that councils were forbidden from using the sale money to build new houses. It was Conservative councils, such as Joseph Chamberlain’s Birmingham council, which pioneered mass council housing in the 19th century. All parties

Home ownership has fallen to its lowest in 25 years

pumping money into the housing sector, without building extra houses, house prices inevitably increase. But it is a short-term fix for electoral reasons. In the 1960s and 1970s, more than 300,000 houses were built annually. Last year, it was just over 100,000. When prices rise, people draw equity out of their inflated house price and use it to buy imported consumer goods.

Tour of Britain is heading to Brighton for first time in race’s modern history Frank le Duc @BHcitynews The Tour of Britain cycle race is coming to the city in September - for the first time in 24 years. Stage seven of the eight-day race will end in Madeira Drive on Brighton seafront after competitors have climbed Ditchling Beacon on their way from the start in Camberley, Surrey. The stage is due to take place on Saturday, September 13, passing through Horsham, Haywards Heath, Uckfield, Eastbourne, and Newhaven on its way to Brighton.

The final route from Camberley to Brighton will be published in the summer. The day after the Brighton stage, the tour ends in London. The whole eight-day tour starts in Liverpool this year. Mick Bennett, the race director, said: “We are delighted to be bringing the Tour of Britain to Sussex and Brighton for the first time in the race’s modern history.” The event was revived in 2004, five years after last being held. It was known for many years as the Milk Race and the Kellogg’s Tour. Mr Bennett added: “While the finish in Brighton is definitely one for the sprinters, the South Downs and Ditchling Beacon in the closing kilometres will pose a real challenge to them and set up what I am sure will be a fantastic finish on the seafront.” Councillor Ian Davey, deputy leader of Brighton and Hove City Council and a keen cyclist, said: “It’s so apt that a stage of the race should finish in a city which has seen an explosion of cycling in recent years.” Cllr Davey, who leads on transport for the Green-led council, said: “As a city, we’re really improving cycling facilities so now I’m hopeful

The Book Doctor

Laura Lockington @bookloversupper

The Lie of You by Jane Lythell The friendship between women has often been explored in books and films. Remember Single White Female, with Bridget Fonda and Jennifer Jason Leigh? Which had us all squirming in our cinema seats way back. This book reminded me of the uncomfortable line that gets crossed when we allow someone into our lives that seems to have the best of intentions. They always seem to be looking out for us. But this, of course, is not always the case. Kathy seems to have it all: a lovely baby, a handsome husband, and a fulfilling job. But what she does not know or realise is that her employee, Heja, has been plotting and watching her every move.

Heja has noticed the cracks in Kathy’s marriage, her lack of self-confidence, and her fear of failure at work. Heja is in the perfect place to pick apart the life of Kathy and does so by stealth and cunning. This book will have you turning page after page long after you should have been asleep; it leaves you with a lot to think about. Why do women sabotage themselves so easily? Why cannot we spot the Hejas in our lives? It is a wonderful study about obsession, jealousy and lying to those that we love. This is an accomplished chilling debut from Jane Lythell, a Brighton resident, who has cracked the genre of psychological thriller brilliantly. It has a clean spare style about it that makes for a compelling read.

the Tour of Britain will inspire even more people to take up cycling for fitness, recreation and transport.” Last year Sir Bradley Wiggins, the Olympic champion and Tour de France winner, won the tour. The race will be coming to Brighton 20 years after the town hosted the finish of one of the early stages of the 1994 Tour de France.

While most of us have long accepted the Green administration have not got a clue, we could have been forgiven for thinking that the Conservatives might know what they are doing when it comes to managing our finances.

There has been so much infighting since they were outed at the last elections that many of us

After the i360, the Labour Party is the only viable option locally

The test for me is: "Would I vote for Warren Morgan if he was an Independent?" The answer to which is: Yes, I would - simply because I believe him to be a councillor for the right reasons and a man of integrity who has a lot to offer. I think we are all fed up with having dramatic changes forced upon us as they have been in the past three years. We just want some stability led by a stable group of people who actually care about the city rather than

their ideals or worse still egos. Unfortunately, none of this will help us as far as the i360 is concerned, as it is almost certain the lunatics currently running the asylum will have drawn down the loan by then and handed the money to Mr David Marks. There is an online petition you can sign if, like me, you want to be able to tell the next generation that at the very least you took a stand against this lunacy and were not a party to it.

Memorial fund

Seagulls in Africa A charity that raised money in memory of a Brighton and Hove Albion fan killed during the 9/11 terrorist attack has given £10,000 to two footballing schemes in Africa. The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund (REMF) has collected more than £120,000 since it launched in the aftermath of the New York attack in 2001 - funding a host of football-related charities, supplying kit to youth clubs, and buying a minibus for a disabled football team in Brighton. It has announced two new funding packages, both worth £5,000 each to the recipients. Team Thunder FC is part of the Thunder Foundation and is based in Nairobi, Kenya, in the country’s second-largest slum. It helps about 65 schoolchildren, aged from nine to 16, attempting to keep local young people off the streets and away from drugs and alcohol; it receives no formal funding. Matt Wilkin, a Seagulls fan, is currently volunteering with the team and contacted the REMF for help. The subsequent donation will pay for new equipment including goals, balls, shirt, and first-aid kit.

This week, long-term REMF fundraiser Brett Mendoza paid a visit to the team (pictured) and delivered a collection of REMF tops and donated football shirts - while also joining in with some football sessions to see just how much of a difference the donation will make. The second £5,000 is being sent to Zambia, where Liz O-Brien, a lifelong Albion fan, is working with Chongwe College and two local football teams. The college is completely self-funding and helps train young Zambians to become primary school teachers - something not easy without equipment. The cash will also help

Ngoma Leopards FC and Nanzhila United continue their work with young children aged five and older. The REMF’s raises funds throughout the year through golf days, sponsored runs and a quiz night – with the latest, held last month, raising £1,600. Its main event is the annual challenge match between Brighton fans and supporters of the Seagulls rivals Crystal Palace. This year’s game takes place at Lewes FC’s Dripping Pan ground on Friday, May 2, with kick off 7.45pm.

Wheelchair petition

A noisy Brighton woman has been ordered to pay fines and costs of more than £1,000 after her neighbours were disturbed by rap music and shouting. Tammie Lee Lindsay, 23, of Langley Crescent, Woodingdean, pleaded guilty to two counts of breaching a noise abatement notice at Brighton Magistrates’ Court. Police were called twice and heard booming rap music, shouting and doors banging into the early hours, the court was told.

More than 5,000 visitors attended Vegfest at Hove Town Hall. The exhibition, one of Europe’s biggest lifestyle shows for vegetarians and vegans, has been held in Hove for the last six years. As well as offering a varied menu of plantbased foods, dozens of stands included information on nutrition and lifestyle. The 125 stalls were stocked with vegan foods such as pad-thai, cakes, mock meats, cheeses, and chocolates.

A wheelchair-user petitioned Brighton and Hove City Council for help over the Hove Station footbridge. The bridge is the responsibility of Network Rail, but Jennifer Keeble hopes the council will work with Network Rail to make the station more accessible. The petition was signed by more than 250 people and said: “We, the undersigned, call on the Department for Transport and Network Rail to fund improved access”.

Politics

Green leader The Green Party has re-elected Jason Kitcat as leader of the local party. He won the election seeing off a challenge from his former deputy Phélim Mac Cafferty. Councillor Kitcat won the vote of 12 of the 21 members of the Green group on Brighton and Hove City Council. Cllr Kitcat said: “I’m delighted to have been re-elected with the highest-ever support from Green Group members.”

Purna Sen

Labour candidate Lisa Nandy, the Labour Party’s shadow minister for civil society, was in Brighton to visit the East Sussex Credit Union, following an invitation from Purna Sen, party’s candidate in Brighton Pavilion. Ms Sen said: “I wanted Lisa Nandy to see at first hand the work the credit union is doing in our area. Since it was set up in East Brighton in 2000, our local credit union has gone from strength to strength. In a time when the high cost of living makes life difficult for so many people, credit unions are vital for many families.  “But it is a great shame that at last Thursday’s council meeting Green and Tory councillors combined to water down a proposal from Labour and Cooperative Party councillors which would have seen the city council follow the example of some other councils and ban access to payday lenders'websites on all council computers and via publicly-

accessible internet connections provided by the council. This was a missed opportunity by the Greens and Conservatives to do something practical to help some of the poorest people in the city.” Pictured (left to right): Richard Priestman, president of East Sussex Credit Union; Purna Sen,

What John Constable made of 'Piccadilly by the seaside' Graham Chainey

The Tate Gallery has been ordered to return a work in its collection to the heirs of the Jewish owner from whom it was stolen by the Nazis. John Constable’s “Beaching a Boat, Brighton” formerly belonged to a Hungarian art collector, Baron Ferenc Hatvany. The spoliation committee concluded that the painting was looted “by the German occupying forces, either from one of his homes or from a bank vault”. The gallery was criticised for failing adequately to research its provenance when it was donated in 1986. This fine artwork, less than 12” by 10”, executed in oil on paper that was then laid on canvas, is naturally of special interest to us. Of all the artists who have painted local scenes – and they range from Rowlandson and Turner to Spencer Gore and Vanessa Bell, from Sickert and

Ruskin Spear to Charles Knight and Edward Le Bas – Constable is arguably the most important. His connection with Brighton began in May 1824 when he sent his tubercular wife, Maria, here for her health. She stayed with their children at a rented villa in Western Place, and he came down from London several times to join them. They returned in 1825, this time staying in Russell Square, and in 1826 and 1828 (Maria died in November of that year). Constable called Brighton “a wonderful place for setting people up – making the well better, & the ill so so; and if I may judge by appearance, old Neptune gets all the ladies with child”. During his various stays, Constable made a great many sketches of local scenes. Many of these feature ships on the beach. He was especially interested in the beached colliers being unloaded (his father’s business had included coal), in ships blown ashore in a gale, in hogboats being hauled in. But he also depicted the view from the Chalybeate Wells (now St

Ann’s Well Gardens), Hove parish church, Blatchington Mill, Vine’s Mill, and gleaners on the Downs. Most are impressionistic sketches done with the paper pinned to his paintbox balanced on his knee, and with a limited range of colours. The looted picture, probably dating from June 1824, has been claimed as a worthy precursor of Manet. Notes on the back often record the exact time of day and weather conditions. He used some of them, including this one, when he composed his largest and finest Brighton view, “The Chain Pier, Brighton”, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1827 and also now in the Tate. Initially, Constable was unimpressed by Brighton’s artistic potential, calling the town “the receptacle of the fashion and offscouring of London. The magnificence of the sea and its everlasting voice is drowned in the din & lost in the tumult of stage coaches, gigs, flys etc, and the beach is only Piccadilly by the seaside. Ladies dressed & undressed, gentlemen

Few of his pictures lend pictorial support to this verbal

sketch. He soon learned to eschew the fashionable melee, to focus on the sea, and to seize moments in bad weather, as in the superb “Rainstorm over the Sea”, where the rain hangs blackly over the image, tiny scattered sails scud vulnerably along the horizon, and the surface of the sea has been streaked for horizontal emphasis with the end of his brush.

Exclusive: The £35m visio The vision > Continued from page 1 which awarded the community association its first grant last month. This is no get-rich-quick scheme by corporate developers. Brighton and Hove has had too many of those. No, this is intended to be a collaborative, community enterprise. The price tag has not deterred potential investors. Far from it. Mr Cook said: “We feel the best route to take in these negotiations is one of collaboration with the city council.  “All parties can benefit from this exciting development on a piece of land that has been unused for over 22 years.” This is Regeneration, a Brightonbased consultancy specialising in economic development and regenration, is helping the charity with a detailed study to demonstrate the commercial viability of the proposals.  Scott Marshall, a director of the consultancy - the city council's former director of housing, culture, and enterprise - said: “We have been

asked by the Patcham Community Association to bring forward this exciting, community-led project on a site that has been vacant for many years with a number of proposals that have not come to fruition.”  The charity has also enlisted the help of the Democratic Society - a membership organisation "promoting participation, networked democracy, and active citizenship" - to put together a list of public questions about what people want to see from the development. Its researchers made their first foray into Patcham yesterday (Thursday) to ask citizens what they need from any development. Anthony Zacharzewski, DemSoc founder and former head of policy for the city council, said: “We are working with Patcham Community Association to help them make independent and fair decisions for their project. Results of the questions will be openly published throughout the development at www.demsoc. org.” The proposals follow the introduction of the 2011 Localism Bill, which encourages communities to actively engage with councils to

take ownership of disused land. Caroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, told Brighton & Hove Independent: "Patcham Court Farm has been disused for over 20 years and these are potentially exciting plans for the site that could provide excellent sports and community facilities for Patcham residents. “When we see the planning application, we will have a clearer picture of the scheme and it will be very important that residents are able to have their say on the proposals.” Emma Hobley is a journalism student at Brighton Journalist Works, The Argus, Argus House, Crowhurst Road, Hollingbury, Brighton, BN1 8AR.

on for Patcham

The site The Patcham Court Farm site is a 3.6-acre redundant farm based in the north of Patcham. The farm was cut off from agricultural area in the early 1990s by developments to the A27; the proximity of the road gives excellent access to the site - along with the A23 interchange.  The land has been disused for more than 20 years. In the City Plan, the site has potential to offer 6,500 square metres of employment floorspace. It is bordered to the east by allotments and to the north and west by the A27. Patcham Conservation Area lies to the south of the site, and the location is in clear view of the South Downs. It has separate access from Vale Avenue, but due to heavy traffic on the A27, the council has advised developers to discuss plans with the Highways Agency. 

The opportunity The “Community Right to Build” aims at making it easier for people to initiate small-scale developments in their area without a lengthy planning process.  It is part of the government's Localism Act, which came into force in April 2012. The “Right to Build” forms part of a scheme to de-centralise control over public services, assets and planning. It is up to the community to decide what they do with disused or derelict sites and the act can be used to approve the building of homes, shops, businesses, and community facilities - along with the conversion of disused buildings into affordable housing. The right to build can be used in any area, rural or urban, and any financial benefit from new developments is intended to go to that area to encourage economic growth. To take ownership of a local site, the community must: set up an organisation; apply to the local authority with a map of neighbourhood boundaries; draw up development plans; and hold a local referendum to find out what residents want to see.

Business Jobs go as Sussex Argus outsources to ... Dorset Greg Hadfield @BrightonIndy The Argus, the ailing Sussex newspaper, is seeking to implement a wave of redundancies that will see the once-great publication - now owned by an American conglomerate - being sub-edited 168 miles away. In Weymouth. In Dorset. The planned redundancies coincide with a continued exodus of senior journalists, including Kim Protheroe, the features editor, and Peter Truman, a senior reporter. One source close to The Sussex Argus told Brighton & Hove Independent that Mr Truman had been involved in discussions about a digital shake-up - with the creation of a new post of commerical web co-ordinator and head of production. The discussions resulted in notice being given to two highlyregarded digital and social-media journalists who job-shared the role

of web editor: Jo Wadsworth and Sarah Booker Lewis. A second source close to The Sussex Argus said that Mr Truman has subsequently resigned to take up the post of assistant editor with the Oxford Mail, another title owned by Newsquest - which, in turn, is owned by Gannett Co, Inc, which is "headquartered" in Tysons Corner, Virginia. In total, the jobs of two news sub-editors and four features subeditors are likely to disappear, possibly as early as Friday, May 16. Six subbing roles are also to go from Southampton, with The Argus and Southern Echo being subbed in Weymouth, where it is reported wages are lower. A third source close to the Hollingbury-based newspaper told Brighton & Hove Independent that staff were upset that so many longserving colleagues were leaving, especially Julia Mans, the chief sub-editor, regarded by some as the glue who has struggled to hold the paper together.

Brighton care home wins the 'Best Large Dementia Community' award A new Brighton care home has won one of six prizes on offer in the sector’s annual design awards. Maycroft Manor, in Carden Avenue, Brighton, was named the Best Large Dementia Community at the Pinders Healthcare Design Awards. The awards aim at acknowledging the contribution made by the owners of care homes, hospitals, and other care

schemes to the wellbeing and quality of life for those in their care. Maycroft Manor was opened late last year by the Gloria Hunniford, the broadcaster, who described it as at “the cutting edge of what a care home should be”. The home provides residential, nursing and dementia care. Lesley Standing, the home’s general manager, said: “We

Maycroft Manor was commended for easy access to outdoor space via large terraces

are so proud to have won this award, which acknowledges the fantastic facilities we offer and the outstanding level of care we provide to our residents. “Thank you to our care team, our residents,and their families and friends for making this building a wonderful home.” A panel of expert judges visited the home last month before coming to their decision. They were impressed by the home’s dementia community, which features its own café, hair salon, and bespoke furniture designed especially for those living with dementia. The home also includes a therapy room, bistro, cinema and rooftop gardens. Other design initiatives, such as the residents’ laundry room and the corner shop, are aimed at enabling residents to continue to live an active, independent life. Outside, the home has been commended for providing easy access to outdoor space via large terraces on each floor as well as landscaped gardens. Maycroft Manor is one of 18 premises run by Hallmark Care Homes which was set up in 1997.

Music conference is first of its kind in the United Kingdom Some of the most influential companies and individuals in electronic music will be in the city next week for the first annual Brighton Music Conference. The two-day national event on April 11 and 12 has 20 parties and club nights, 50 exhibitors, and more than 60 panels, masterclasses, question-and-answer sessions, and showcases. The event is supported by leading industry bodies, such as Beatport, Native Instruments, Pioneer, Ableton, Sennheiser, Mixcloud, PRS For Music, Funktion-One, Roland, Point Blank, and Spotify.

A care home with a difference Mark Ansell @BrightonIndy The team at Maycroft Manor invited Brighton & Hove Independent to the state-ofthe-art care home to show that it’s not just great care on offer, a lot of time has been spent in developing a vast food menu for all the residents, too. Hallmark Care Homes newest care home, Maycroft Manor can be found adjacent to Withdean Park. The designers aimed to combine luxury with a warm and welcoming environment and I must say, they have done just that.

I was welcomed by Lesley Standing – the care home manager. I was given a tour of the home, which includes a therapy room, a hair salon, cinema, two cafés / bistros, a corner shop, a roof terrace garden and a choice of spacious lounges and kitchen/ dining rooms for those who want to prepare their own snacks or drinks in between mealtimes. We finished our tour in one of the bistros, with large windows overlooking the surrounding gardens. I was introduced to the home’s head chef – Nick Ekland. Nick has been a chef in the care homes industry for 26 years, and has brought his knowledge to the Brighton care home in the hope of raising standards of meals

and providing as much variety as possible. The lunch and dinner menus run on a 28 days cycle, with a different freshly-prepared meal every day, ranging from classic English dishes through to curries. The whole menu is changed entirely every quarter, to avoid repetition and to adapt to the seasons. To give residents even more choice, Nick sits with each of them to ask about their favourite meals, so they can decide what they want and he even regularly cooks bespoke meals for individual residents. Nick is passionate about sourcing his products locally; all the meat comes from Bexhill, with all the fruit and vegetables supplied from various suppliers in Brighton. Eager to taste the menu for myself, I was treated to a three-course lunch. The starter consisted of stuffed mushrooms with a mushroom and tarragon pate. The ingredients tasted deliciously fresh and were complimented beautifully by the cream cheese. This was followed by a pancetta and chive omelette. Accompanied with rocket, the

omelette was full of flavour and was the perfect sized portion for a lunch time meal. The atmosphere in the room was very relaxed and residents happily watched their meals being cooked in the open-plan kitchen, with the wonderful cooking aromas passing around the room. Finally, we were brought a cheese board to fill any remaining gaps and finished off the lunch nicely. Not wanting to overstay my welcome, it was a shame I couldn’t sample the vast dinner menu too. All of the team really did go out of their way to ensure I, along with the rest of the residents, had a great lunch.

Overall, I couldn’t fault the meal, the home or the service. All of our dishes were cooked to perfection and the head chef, Nick, couldn’t do enough for us. I was honestly staggered at the astronomical levels of design and finish that have gone into Maycroft Manor. Everything from the resident care, through to the food menu have been thoroughly planned to ensure the best level of service is delivered to the residents.

The entire Muppets gang embark on a global tour Muppets: Most Wanted (PG) Running time: 107 mins Director: James Bobin Starring: Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey Back in 2011, the fuzzy Jim Henson creations known as The Muppets were reintroduced to the big screen in spectacular fashion, and as a result, expectations for the sequel are through the roof. Of course, it takes less than three minutes into the new movie for the titular characters to acknowledge the immense challenges facing the production, singing in the opening number: “We’re doing a sequel, that’s

franchise’s history – co-written by director James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller – the new movie picks up moments after the end of The Muppets, and finds the troupe looking for a way to capitalise on their rediscovered popularity. Teaming up with a shady tour manager named Dominic Badguy An immensely funny, witty (Ricky Gervais), they come to the caper that both adult and conclusion that the best course of young audiences will enjoy” action is to go take the show on the its predecessor, but, all the same, road to some of Europe’s most is still an immensely funny, witty famous destinations. What the caper that both adult and young Muppets don’t know, however, audiences will enjoy in equal is that Dominic is actually a henchman for Constantine, an measure. The first direct sequel in the internationally notorious thief who also happens to be Kermit The Frog’s doppelganger (minus a mole on the villain’s face). Together the two bandits work to pull off a scheme by having Kermit sent to the Russian gulag while the touring Muppet what we do in Hollywood, and everybody knows the sequel’s never quite as good.” While this classic industry trope hasn’t always turned out to be true, in the case of Muppets Most Wanted the lyric turns out to be pretty fitting. The film ultimately doesn’t quite live up to

show is used as a cover to pull off some of the most daring heists the world has ever seen. Of course, putting new characters in the spotlight means that some of the most beloved Muppets don’t get as big a part in the story, but not only is the choice understandable, it is even turned into one of the best jokes in the film. Worth seeing? After nearly half a century with

the characters, audiences have come to expect certain things from Muppets projects, from amazing celebrity cameos to meta references to all kinds of ridiculous chaos, and in that respect Muppets Most Wanted is certainly a success. The filmmakers set their own extremely high bar with a brilliant comeback film, and while the follow-up doesn’t quite reach that bar, it’s still a wonderful and hilarious effort.

Oona Chaplin The Crimson Field BBC1, 9pm When it was first announced, the BBC’s First World War season seemed to be heavy on documentaries (as you would expect) and little else. However, this new drama series should prove to be one of the highlights. It’s been painstakingly researched by writer Sarah Phelps, who has aimed to bring back to life what it was like to work in and be treated at a tented field hospital near the front line in France. A superb cast, which includes Suranne Jones, Hermione Norris, Oona Chaplin and Kerry Fox, bring the characters to life.

The places I eat

It’s summer time – and the drinking is easy Claire Beveridge @placesieatbtn

British Summer Time is officially here. While this run-down of city’s sun-soaked patios and hidden hideaways may seem a little premature, remember the glorious feeling of taking friends to “that little place I know”, hidden away from the tourist hotspots and student hangouts as the sun beats down. Of course, my list is also foodcentric. So the suggestions below reflect both the garden area and the ability to eat some great food, too.

Hove Place 37 First Avenue, Hove BN3 2FH www.hoveplace.co.uk On First Avenue lies the quintessential and idyllic Hove-based hideaway. The beautiful garden at Hove Place is surrounded by blossoming flowers and scattered with large tables ready to be filled with families

and friends alike. Alfresco dining is very much the norm during warmer days, because the garden floods with sunlight from morning through to late afternoon. Phil Bartley, the head chef, provides punters with a bistro and pub menu to choose from, including prime Sussex ribeye steak, pan-fried sea bass, traditional fish and chips, halloumi and beetroot burger, plus a wide selection of sandwiches and deli specials. Affordable wine, premium spirits, and bottled or draft lagers and ciders are served until close.

Hobgoblin 31 York Place, Brighton BN1 4GU www.hobgoblinbrighton.co.uk The sunny beer garden at the Hobgoblin pub at the bottom of London Road is one of the best in the city centre: sheltered, large, with a lively atmosphere, the Hobgoblin is the type of pub garden you will arrive in at 3pm and not leave until 3am. Fuelling the steady stream of alcohol has to be food. And what

Hove Place: The Italian garden is surrounded by blossoming flowers

better food than burgers! But not just any old meat in a bun, these are Trolls Pantry burgers. Patties made from 35-day-aged steak mince, buns handmade from organic brioche, and toppings that include bourbon peppercorn sauce, honey-bacon jam, maplecandied bacon, smoked cheese, pickles, and beetroot ketchup, to name but a few. Bottled and draft beers, premium spirits and drink deals served throughout the week.

Sidewinder 65 Upper St James’s Street, Brighton BN2 1PJ www.drinkinbrighton/sidewinder Kemptown has its fair share of boozers, ranging from rock ’n’ roll cocktail bars to traditional village-esque pubs. It is, however, the Sidewinder that stands out with its two pub gardens, one even being south-facing. Bang Bang Burrito host the kitchen throughout the week, serving a hungry crowd their mix of burritos and Mexican-tinged daily specials. On Sundays, the Sidewinder keeps it traditional with roasted meats and vegetarian options. Great drinks selection, including a build-your-own Bloody Mary.

The Battle of Trafalgar: A great hideaway

Serving real ale, including Harveys, and a decent spirit selection.

The Windmill 69 Upper North Street, Brighton BN1 3FL The Windmill is the pub that everyone wants a seat when the sun is shining. South-facing and an all-day sun-trap, The Windmill on Upper North Street provides locals with a patio escape from the hustle and bustle of town below. Serving an eclectic Mexicana menu that stretches as far as the odd burger or two, The Windmill is a delightful pub with a great atmosphere. Very busy at weekends; get there early to secure a table. Expect ales, ciders, spirits and a great array of soft drinks.

The Battle of Trafalgar

The best of the rest:

34 Guildford Road, Brighton BN1 3LW A traditional pub serving real ale and proper home-cooked pub grub, The Battle of Trafalgar also hosts a wonderful, almost “hidden”, beer garden to the rear. This is a great place to take friends when the mood for an authentic pub strikes. Expect a local yet welcoming clientele and a friendly, chatty atmosphere.

Best sea-view: Fortune of War, 157 King’s Road, Brighton BN1 1NB Best grass: Hangleton Manor, Hangelton Valley Drive, Hove BN3 8AN Best view of Brighton: The Setting Sun, 1 Windmill Street, Brighton BN2 0GN

Most people have probably never heard of this hardy variety - even though it accounts for more than 5% of the global wine crop. It has an ability to thrive in some of the most inhospitable soils and growing conditions. Spain is its natural home, with more than 90% of the global production; it is particularly popular in areas such as La Mancha and Valdepenas. In the past, it was used for two things: a blending grape for some of the mellower reds, adding the acidity needed to bring the best from varieties such as Cencibel, a Tempranillo clone; and for making some rather harsh and highly-alcoholic wines not for the export market. In recent times, though, this workhorse of the wine world has been used to create some light and unpretentious whites. Clean acidity and freshness complement oily white fish such as sardines and mackerel; they also pair nicely with garlicky seafood and light oriental dishes. Sam Gardom @SamGardom www.feastblog.co.uk

Tramping in the footsteps of hobbits in the Land of the Long White Cloud Tom Gallagher @GallagherTDG

The pursuit of physical health can be no more arduous than taking a good walk. And as walking goes, few activities lend themselves as well to exploration in exotic climes. Which is why, perhaps, Tourism New Zealand has unveiled several new experiences to be had on two feet. Tramping - as New Zealanders refer to hiking - is a mainstay of Kiwi-tourism and, across the Land of the Long White Cloud, thousands of kilometres of trails criss-cross a unique topography. Over the hills and mountains of Middle Earth, travellers walk in the footsteps of hobbits and men. Rotorua’s newly-opened Tarawera Trail is predicted to become one of the best walks in New Zealand. The 15km trail is the first of a proposed network involving the Department of Conservation and Maori private landowners to connect the 14 Te Arawa lakes in the area. The one-day walk - expected to take around five hours - leads to the popular Hot Water Beach of Te Rata Bay, making the geothermal beach on the edge of Lake Tarawera accessible for walkers and hikers for the first time. Launched in January, the Haerenga multi-day walking trail now offers the chance to explore Auckland’s largest and most diverse island sanctuaries of Rangitoto and Motutapu in the

Hauraki Gulf, over a three-day adventure. The first day of the Haerenga will take in the summit of Rangitoto and explore the 600-year-old volcanic landscapes; the second will explore the completely contrasting cultural significance and ancient landscapes of Motutapu, the sacred island; the third will be an opportunity to learn about the restoration of Motutapu, stroll through regenerating forest, and support conservation work. One of New Zealand’s most famous and historic backcountry farms - Mt Nicholas High Country Station (Mt Nic), near Queenstown, is now open for visitors, with the launch of a series of exclusive tours by operator Southern Discoveries. The half-day high-country walk explores the station including the landmarks of Lover’s Leap,

Something new always happens the very minute that you take time out! I have just moved house and apologise for my consequent absence from the newspaper. Over the last couple of weeks, however, an amazing viral explosion took place with the #nomakeupselfie campaign. It began on March 19 and ran quite independently from any charity. Within two days, the meme resulted

in millions of pounds of donations to various cancer charities - including £8 million to cancer research alone, enough to fund about 10 clinical trials - plus a myriad self-checking messages and news stories. Can it be possible that women of all ages are quite naturally enjoying the chance to reject the pressures to groom to perfection, even if only for an hour or a day?

the spectacular Von River mouth, native forest, and the original homestead site. The fully-guided, six-kilometre, two-hour walk enables guests to soak up the peace and tranquility of New Zealand’s remote back-country. The Queenstown helicopter company, Heliworks, and luxury guiding company, Alpine Adventures, have launched an exclusive Middle Earth Waterfalls heli-hike soft adventure. The hike offers access to one of the most dramatic locations featured in “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”. The flight takes customers across Lake Wakatipu to the start of the bushline, where the 5km hike through rolling high-country farm and golden tussock fields begins. The trip winds its way to the lake at the bottom of a steep valley Like many, I went a couple of days in public without make-up myself and, despite a great skin-care regime, it was still a stretch. I really salute everyone who took part and donated! Some charities chose to ignore #nomakeupselfie, because the early message did not fit with them. But for those on board, it raised some completely unexpected income. On the second day, most were better at joining in with the spirit and began sharing their own photos. Eventually, the male chief executives of Macmillan Cancer Support and Beating Bowel Cancer had both uploaded their selfies - and the hashtag trail evolved to include #manupmakeup, #whataman, and others. So will the blip of slap-free living actually affect the cosmetics products industry? No, not a bit.

where a hanging glacier on Mt Earnslaw, known as Earnslaw Burn, looms overhead. The melting glacier sends lines of cascading waterfalls tumbling down a formidable wall of rock all the way down to the valley floor. The three- to four-hour guided walk includes a gourmet picnic lunch and ample time to explore at the bottom of the falls.

The Brighton Lanes have always been fascinating to explore as you come across some really unique shops. Tegen Accessories is in Meeting House Lane and, as Tegen is Cornish for ‘pretty little things’, you really will not be disappointed.The new bridal collection by designer Eliza Vale is perfect for wedding preparations this season. Their growing reputation for an assortment of fascinators and hats in many styles and colours, including award winning designers Lucy Gilmore Murphy and Peter Bettley, will provide perfect choices for the races or big events. Tegen stocks a vast selection of high quality hand-made French clips (arguably the best in the world!), Swarovski crystal embellished accessories and some truly unique pieces by local designers.  Whether you’re looking for something for everyday wear, a special occasion, or a gift, you rarely come out empty handed! Tegen Accessories are showing on the catwalk at the Brighton Thistle Fashion Show on Saturday, April 12. Shows are at 2pm, 2.45pm and 3.30pm. This is a free event and a perfect way to catch up on the Spring/Summer trends from our local shops. Jane Busby is a stylist and personal shopper www.janebusby.co.uk

Did anyone link the chemical nasties in some brands with any cancers? Again, no. In fact, according to a new research report by Brand Finance Cosmetics 50, the total brand value of the world’s most famous make-up firms has just risen to $106.2 billion (£64 billion). L’Oreal tops this list - it took over The Body Shop, as you may recall and it remains the only $10 billion

cosmetics brand in the world, with its value up by about 24%. So it clearly is “worth it”. But I am very pleased to see that people power has just proved its value as well. I am now looking forward to an April trade show to discover more organic personal care brands and I will soon feature a selection of natural sunscreens, refreshing summery hydrolats, and a couple of much-needed deodorant heroes.

McLaren take the 12C to another level

Frisbee, swimming and volleyball can be part of your summer regime Paul Coneyworth @BeauPilates

McLaren claim to have developed the best equipped, most luxurious – and prettiest supercar to date

Engine: 3.8-litre twinturbocharged petrol V8 0-62mph: 3.0 seconds Price: £195,222 (Coupe), £215,222 (Spider) The 2014 McLaren 650S is a new 12C-based supercar with more power, P1-inspired looks and significantly overhauled chassis technology – it’s sensational. First impressions If McLaren is Woking’s answer to Ferrari, then the McLaren 650S is sort of like a Ferrari 458 Speciale. Neither analogy is entirely exact, but the 650S is the hardest, most focused road-going version of the McLaren 12C yet. It just happens also to be the best equipped, most luxurious – and prettiest. McLaren doesn’t call it a 12C at all, because although the fundamental structure is the same, there is a lot more to this new car than a nose job. Performance A full-bore standing start in this McLaren is like the hand of a malevolent god reaching down and giving you a flick, as if the 650S was some kind of automotive equivalent of celestial Subbuteo.

This is a very light car of its type, too, the Coupe weighing in at just 1,301kg dry, if you spec all the extra carbonfibre options (exterior components, and those seats); the Spider is 40kg heavier, but both are lighter than the 12C equivalent. Low weight is part of what makes the 650S so engaging to drive 0-124mph in 8.4 is a and so effective on whole second faster than the racetrack – but it the legendary McLaren F1” doesn’t come at the cost of safety.

Parenting Time Waits For No Mum

Mummy K @no_mum

Spring has sprung - and the parks and playgrounds are choc-a-bloc with screaming children and their adults. As you walk by, you would be

forgiven for thinking these parks are care-free idylls full of relaxed, happy folk. Step inside, though, and you will be hit by the phenomenon that is park politics.

That is right! Politics. In a park. See that empty swing over there, still swaying with the energy of its most recent incumbent? Well, you are not the only one; so do at least two others. The race is on. Your task is to get to the swing first, without a) running, b) looking too determined, or c) being spotted until the last moment. The alternative? A half-hour wait - at the minimum - with a crestfallen child. Perhaps you, or rather your child, prefers the slide? In which case, you need to forget everything

Sun, sea and sand can mean only one thing: a British summer, or at least a Sussex summer. As the clocks adjust themselves, lighter nights delight us and the temperature goes up a notch or two, the Beau team is itching to head down to the beach and frolic in the sea. Finally, after months of jumpers and umbrellas, it is time to dig deep into your wardrobe and search for those summer dresses, flip-flops, and bikinis.   You will have spent months slogging it out on the treadmill in preparation for the beach season, creating a musculature of a toned torso that is worthy of the social media spotlight. At Beau, we meet lots of keen holidaymakers and thrillseekers. So whether it be an afternoon on Brighton beach with friends, sunning yourself on an Andalusian beach, or even surfing the east coast of Barbados, it is imperative you keep active during your summer breaks and maintain the levels you achieved through all of that autumnal hard work. And the good news is these objectives can be met using doses

of fun, fun, fun. There are many ways of maintain your fitness regimes, solo or with friends. Either way, we are advising swapping the dumb bells for beach towels just this once. Here are some summer-friendly ways of doing so: Swimming - This may sound obvious but we are not talking swimming lengths. In the sea, you will be at one with Mother Nature, so the benefits will be coupled with a spiritual element, which is all important in Brighton; Volleyball - You will need a partner, but the cardio-vascular element of continual side-to-side movement, jumping and hitting will help burn those calories, without you even realising; Frisbee - This is obviously my favourite of the three. Similar to volleyball, Frisbee is a fantastic way of improving those reflexes, leg strength, and a great method of maintaining your physical fitness without looking at your watch. Get the summer wardrobe out and the Factor 10 at the ready for the summer, for your holidays, or for just another sunny afternoon in Sussex.

Volleyball helps burn calories

you have ever been taught about queues and actively (but quietly) encourage your child to rush past any dawdlers or toddlers. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and all that. If your child is old enough not to require chaperoning on or between the equipment, then I am afraid you do not quite escape unscathed. You are obliged to find a bench and bury your head in a paper or keep your eyes glued on your phone, so you can feign ignorance when your child pushes their peers over. At least, that seems to be compulsory

from what I have witnessed. And remember: it is okay to smile and talk to other parents you already know at the park. But take some time to observe the politics of your chosen hangout before attempting to strike up a conversation with those you do not know. In some places, it is one of the biggest taboos going.

Brian Horton Signed from Port Vale for a fee of around £30,000, Brian Horton quickly established himself as a key play in what would become one of the Seagulls best ever teams.

Mackail-Smith believes Ulloa could be his perfect partner

JOHNNY CANTOR

@johnnycburger

Straight from the commentary box

Richard Morris

Brighton’s record signing Craig Mackail-Smith is on the verge of a timely return to the Seagulls first team after months. And the Scotland international is confident he will form a deadly duo with the Albion’s current chief goal-grabber Leo Ulloa. Mackail-Smith hit 11 goals in an impressive start to last term before injury ended his season early but he completed 90 minutes at The Amex earlier this week – bagging two goals for the Development Squad. Whether it is enough to convince Oscar Garcia he is ready for a return to the match day squad in time for tomorrow’s game with Barnsley remains to be seen, but Mackail-Smith believes he and Ulloa have the makings of a great goal-scoring double act. “Leo has been outstanding for us in the time he has been at the club,” Mackail Smith said, “and if he hadn’t got injured I think he would be one of the leading scorers in this division. For a big man, he has great feet and

is very comfortable on the ball and can score all sorts of goals. “He is a great lad too. I hope that we get the chance to play together as a two up front as I think that we complement each other really well. I feel that I could stretch defences with my pace allowing Leo to get in the hole and pick the ball up and face defences.” Oscar appears to favour a three-pronged attack rather than a traditional pairing, but Manchester United prospect Jesse Lingard has highlighted the flexibility afforded by that approach – regularly coming in from the left flank to support Ulloa in more central positions. A similar role could suit a

fully fit Mackail-Smith and his return – and that of fellow long-term injured striker Will Hoskins – would certainly provide the Albion head coach with more options in attack. Whatever position he ends up playing, Mackail-Smith is raring to go – and wants to repay supporters who have inundated him with well-wishes. “The messages I have received from the fans are fantastic,” he said, “and I really appreciate every single one that I get. I do my best to reply to them. They help motivate me to work harder so that I can get back playing and scoring and celebrating with fans.”

Albion in the Community at the Brighton Fringe Festival AITC is making its debut appearance at this summer’s Brighton Fringe Festival with two events announced this week. The Open Minds Living Library event, which will take place on Monday, May 12 at the University of Sussex is part of AITC’s Gamechangers initiative which aims to help beat stigma around mental health. The event will see Gamechanger volunteers, all with lived experience of mental

health tell their stories to the public alongside awareness workshops, an art exhibition and music from local band Tragic Roundabout. The Gamechangers project which has seen volunteers directly engage with over 700 people since its launch in April 2013 is funded by Time to Change, England’s biggest programme to end the stigma and discrimination faced by people with mental health

problems. The programme is run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, and funded by the Department of Health and Comic Relief. For more details about the event and the project e-mail Caroline. orsola@albioninthecommunity. org.uk.

goal and could provide goals in the absence of Andrew Crofts. It was also an excellent night for captain Gordon Greer. the Scottish international has come under criticism (unfair in my view) from some fans in recent weeks. I thought he lead from the start, scored an important goal and was unlucky with the penalty decision. There are many ingredients that make a great football team but mental There are many strength is certainly ingredients that make a one of them. With seven games to go to Seagulls great team but mental have ground to make up strength is one them” but rivals will write off this side at their peril. three all draw with Blackburn may not be remembered come May but the confidence boost could last for some time. Yes players from all over the pitch need to contribute goals in an effort to help Leo Ulloa but the resilience shown to come from behind twice shows the character needed if Oscar Garcia side is to end up in the top six. I was particularly pleased for Stevens who provides steel and determination in the Albion midfield. he also has an eye for London buses. They say you wait for ages then 3 come along at once. That’s certainly how it felt on Tuesday. After waiting for over 300 minutes for a goal, look what happens. Both David Rodriguez and Dale Stephens both opened their account for the Seagulls on what could prove to be a crucial evening in their push for the play-off’s. The single point gained in the

We were not at our best tonight – we’ve played better in recent games and lost – but tonight the players showed fantastic character and full credit to them, that’s exactly why we believe in them. We’ve got some great pros at the club who drive each other on. “We were pleased with the character the players showed, and how we came back against a very good side. We didn’t play particularly well overall, we didn’t defend as we normally do, but we showed a lot of determination to come back and get a big point. “I was so pleased we were able to put an end to a run of bad results. It’s been a tough couple of weeks and we felt we haven’t got what we deserved from the performances.”

3-3 draw. Will Buckley is nursing another hamstring injury so will miss out, meaning David Rodriguez could start again after scoring from the right flank at Blackburn. Solly March and Kazenga Lua Lua provide alternative options in the wide positions if Oscar decides to tinker change things. And all eyes will be on the substitute bench as supporters wait to see whether Craig MackailSmith is included in the match day squad for the first time since injury prematurely ended involvement in last season’s campaign. The Scotland international impressed for the Development Squad earlier this week and has been tipped to return to first team action over the coming games.

line-up at the expense of Jake Forster-Caskey, although Keith Andrews may also find his place up for grabs if the Albion head coach opts for a more adventurous starting line-up. Inigo Calderon will presumably return to the right back role as a result of Bruno’s suspension for clocking up too many yellow cards, while Gordon Greer and Matthew Upson are almost certain to keep their centre back slots despite the Seagulls leaking three goals at Ewood Park. Club captain Greer has come in for criticism from some supporters – with many predicting Lewis Dunk would get the nod at Blackburn – but he responded with a determined performance capped by an important goal in the team’s

League position:

Assistant Head Coach

Richard Morris

Brighton ended a run of three successive defeats with a gutsy draw at Blackburn Rovers but Oscar Garcia’s charges will be looking for a first win in five tomorrow to boost their stuttering play-off hopes. On the face of it a trip to third bottom Barnsley is not the most daunting of fixtures but the Tykes go into Saturday’s game having won their last two matches, scoring seven goals in the process. Barnsley also came out on top when the two sides met at The Amex back in December and in Chris O’Grady they have a striker in top form having chalked up two goals and three assists in the last two games. In fact, his 12 league strikes this season is four more than Seagulls talisman Leo Ulloa has managed in the Championship. Usually goal-shy Albion will be encouraged by their midweek draw at Blackburn Rovers which saw three different players find the net – including returning midfielder Dale Stephens. As a more forward-thinking player Stephens could provide the Albion with some much-needed midfield support for the often isolated Ulloa should Oscar decide to start the former Charlton player at Oakwell. He could return to the starting

Albion Statistics:

Fans’ favourite Inigo Calderon will be back in the team for tomorrow’s game as a result of a suspension to his right back rival Bruno. The swashbuckling Spaniard is one of the most popular players in the current Seagulls squad and should fit seamlessly into the Albion’s defence. The rampaging right back offers as much going forward as he does defensively.

Choosing your estate agent? ■ When you are looking to sell or rent out your residential property in Brighton and Hove, is it important to you that your agent is a member of a professional body? The main professional body for selling agents is the NAEA – the National Association of Estate Agents - membership of which is by exam. It operates a strict code of conduct, runs a wide range of training courses,

and exists to raise standards. In the rental sector, ARLA – the Association of Residential Letting Agents – operates similarly, bonding its members to a strict code of conduct. The Royal Institution

When you make potentially the most important personal and financial decisions of your life, do you want to try to make a reasoned decision, based on your intellect, your intuition, your emotions and your sensations as you view a property? Probably… But how can you do that if you are herded around a property with a group of other potential buyers in tow, feeling pressured to make a decision based on the fear of losing it rather than the benefits of buying it. Do you really want that experience? To make good decisions, people need time and space to think and evaluate clearly. Being hassled into making a decision by a pushy agent or by the thought of losing a property you have not yet clearly decided you want, is invidious.

So, the next time an estate agent suggests an ‘Open House’ to you as a seller, think how you would feel if you were put into that scenario…it’s not nice and not helpful. Agents are paid to provide a service so they should individually escort prospective buyers through your property, giving them time to make good decisions. Then they do not regret and withdraw. In addition, imagine if the best buyer who would have paid the best price, could not make the Open House slot… Of course, if it is an auction property, buyers expect this and are often a different breed anyway. When you stop to think, it makes complete sense.

Why choose Jason Dean? We keep our promises – we listen.

A view from the city As an independent estate agent, Jason Dean is passionate about the local community and its residents. This week Sarah Indranie, one of the directors talks to Rosario Guarneri. Former owner of The Arrogant Frog Restaurant. Rosario Guarneri OMIF.co.uk

1. What’s your favourite street/road and why? Kings Gardens - we lived there for many happy years when my daughter was growing up from a baby to a schoolgirl. It was fantastic living opposite the beach and walking on Hove Lawns, we treated it as our back garden. 2. Favourite bakery/coffee/ cake shop and why? I could say Le Petit Pain Church Road, Hove, as we had great fun and fantastic French patisseries and breads, sadly it isn’t open anymore. Now I guess it is Real Patisserie - their breads and cakes are wonderful! 3. What’s your most memorable local event? I would have to say that it was meeting David Cameron

at Stanmer Park. Most memorable to me because he gave his approval for my hospitality apprenticeship program, TEACH. 4. Which zone do you live in and what recent changes have you noticed? N zone - the parking is getting busier every month. Also the streets were swept virtually every day 6 years ago - now it seems, barely ever.

Moving home is about so much more than buying bricks and mortar. It’s not complicated but it can be a daunting process. We think it’s about following your heart and gut instincts, doing what financially works for you at the right time and within your timescales. It’s about choice – the street, the community, the local amenities, friends and family.

When we talk to our buyers, sellers, tenants and landlords, we don’t enjoy a cup of tea with them only to spoil it with the technicalities of the process. We sit and we listen to what you want to achieve, where you see yourself and how you’ve arrived at those decisions. It helps us to communicate with you more effectively and to work more

efficiently for you. Of course, we always give our honest advice regarding the local property market, up to date realistic valuations and share our extensive experience in whatever way we can. “Activity and marketing does not stop until we sell/let your property or find you a new home” Sarah Indranie - Director

5. If you could make one eco change to your home, what would it be? Solar panels. 6. What is your opinion of the local property market? I think it is quite buoyant really; the best places and best bargains always go quickly, you have to have your finger on the pulse. Brighton and Hove is still a great place to live and work and many choose it because of the lifestyle – being by the sea makes such a difference. 7. Has it effected you, if so, how? Not really at the moment as we have been settled for some years now.

Just what the doctor ordered Phil Graves of Graves Jenkins

Graves Jenkins are offering for sale four substantial properties in the Brighton and Hove area which will undoubtedly attract a high level of interest from prospective purchasers. Each property has previously been used as a support home
