A FLOOD of information about Brighton and Hove City Council is to be released in a radical shift towards greater transparency. Detailed results of more than 1,000 requests a year made under the Freedom of Information Act are to be published online, Brighton & Hove Independent can reveal. It will also be easier for citizens to make requests, following a pioneering agreement with mySociety, a charity that uses digital technology "to help people become more powerful in the civic and democratic parts of their lives". Currently, only the person who makes a direct request to the council sees the response. Today, we can also report for the first time that recent Freedom of Information requests have disclosed: • £51,690 has been spent on legal services for evictions of travellers from illegal encampments across the city since 2004; the legal costs involving Wild Park alone total £3,810;

Pride weekend inspires sell-out of 100th issue F.A.O: Richard Collins

A SHOP IN THE CENTRE of Brighton has had its licence to sell alcohol revoked. B&W Stores, in York Place, Brighton, was banned from selling booze after systematically selling super-strength alcohol to street drinkers despite warnings from the police and council. Brighton and Hove City Council said: “There was also evidence of sales to underage children at the off-licence.� The London Road Local Action Team requested a review of the licence and representations were made by 24 different organisations, residents and businesses.

The panel heard that he had other business interests, acting as a medical consultant and as the licence holder of premises in another town. He volunteered to accept a condition on the premises licence restricting sales to alcoholic drinks with an ABV content of 6 per cent or less.

Attention all you smokers 90% success rate – As seen on Richard & Judy and BBC News 24 now available in Brighton!

Bioresonance therapy has had so much positive press coverage recently i.e. Richard & Judy, BBC News 24 & The Telegraph that you are probably already aware of it. It has nothing to do with hypnosis but is a treatment method which has been used in Europe for over 26 years to treat many ailments including allergies, asthma, skin problems, muscular relief, heart disease, drug addiction, weight control and much more. Since then it has been modified and has now been found to be extremely effective in the treatment of nicotine. In fact these modifications have lead to 90 per cent of people becoming free of their addiction after just one treatment. How does it compare with other smoking cessation treatments? t3JDIBSEBOE+VEZRVPUFETVDDFTTSBUFXJUI tOJDPUJOFQBUDIFTBOEHVN t"DVQVODUVSFBOEIZQOPTJTIBWFCFFOLOPXOUP tQSPEVDFBTVDDFTTSBUF t4NPLJOHDFTTBUJPODMJOJDTIBWFTIPXOBTVDDFTT t rate t(PJOHiDPMEUVSLFZwIBTBCPVUBTVDDFTTSBUF The therapy has been available in places like Harley Street, London for some time but at a cost!

Jason Kitcat The recent campaign by Greenpeace and others highlighted the plight of bees, who are struggling to find enough food. Not only are bees much-loved neighbours in our environment, but we are absolutely reliant upon them to pollinate our crops. As many gardens are paved over, or are turned into relatively-sterile lawn, bees and other insects are losing their food sources. For the last few years, the council has been introducing more diverse and sustainable planting in areas we maintain. This includes perennial plants that bloom every year and more native flowering plants that do their bit to support our local ecosystem. For example, wildflowers are now planted on the Lewes Road central reservation and grassed areas on several housing estates. We have also

replaced a number of more traditional flower beds with perennial schemes. As well as increasing biodiversity, the schemes are also cheaper to maintain, as they require less-frequent mowing and are cheaper than annual plantings. We also recently converted two redundant bowling greens in Preston Park to wildflower meadows, which are attracting bees and butterflies to

the park. All the work has been led by gardeners and other Cityparks staff, supported by many volunteers. Working with the national park and neighbouring authorities, we have been granted funding to create 15 “B Banks�. B Banks are artificiallycreated nature areas to encourage wildflowers, bees and butterflies. So far, B Banks are in place at Dorothy Stringer School and Varndean School -

as well as in Roedean and Greanleas. Finally, we are working with Kew Gardens on new ways to harvest local seed from the countryside to grow in the city; the first plants to be grown using this method will be coming to a park or garden near you next year.

Balcombe protestors fight on By Ian Kostrzewski “IT IS NOT OVER” was the steadfast message to fuel prospectors, Cuadrilla, as a protest camp at Balcombe, organised by No dash For Gas, this week came to a controversial end. The six day protest, in support of Frack Free Sussex, has seen over 30 people arrested for public order offences, including Caroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion. Ms Lucas said: “Risking arrest isn’t something I did lightly, but there are times when nonviolent peaceful direct action can be legitimate. That is the case

officer concerned and gave an assurance that every officer at such events is under constant scrutiny. More arrests have been made this week and nine people have so far been charged with public order offences, others - including Ms Lucas - were released on bail and will find out next week whether they will be charged. Ms Wicz said: “The fact an MP is prepared to take action sends a really strong message. She has empowered residents and given legitimacy to what we are saying.” Anti-fracking groups suggest Downing Street support for sites like Balcombe demonstrate

especially when the Government is risking a breach of its global commitments.” She said on her website that ministers refused to listen, causing a democratic deficit so huge people were left with no alternative but to take action. When asked whether the police response was appropriate, Cuadrilla’s spokesperson said: “We cannot comment on Ms Lucas or any related matter, only that the police took the necessary action.” Ewajasie Wicz from No Dash for Gas described the police’s actions as contradictory: “They were very much hands off at the camp but the approach to protest activity was heavy handed, aggressive and provocative. “The protest was about civil disobedience, and was not criminal. The police were trying to undermine the message we were trying to get across.” Some of those arrested plan legal action against police but Superintendent Lawrence Hobbs defended officers saying the protestor’s intent had changed and at times restraint techniques had to be used although he denied allegations of kettling. “Restraint can look very physical and, particularly if you’ve never seen it before, quite alarming” he said. Accusations have also been made that at least one officer was not wearing the epaulettes used as identification. Supt Hobbs has said he will be seeking clarification from the

a U-turn in the government’s sustainable energy policy and test drilling should not be given a green light until more is known about the procedure’s long term environmental effects. Fracking or hydraulic fracturing pumps water, chemicals and sand into rock, usually shale, at high pressure to release gas and is said to pollute water supplies as the chemicals seep into the water table. Cuadrilla was also blamed for two earthquakes in Blackpool in 2011 after using the procedure, forcing a government review which cleared the technique. The company stressed fracking is not considered an option as data shows little gas in the chalk and limestone bedrock and drilling was purely to identify whether a commercially viable source of oil could see Balcombe operate alongside 52 other wells in Sussex. However, the Balcombe site was drilled by US prospectors, Conoco, in 1986 but is not listed on a government report of substantial UK oil reserves discovered since 1982. If sufficient gas reserves were found, Cuadrilla assure villagers that extraction would be subject to rigorous assessment, planning and licensing which would take any concerns into account. Despite these assurances the parish council has already said it will oppose future plans to frack at the site. Cuadrilla maintain an open dialogue with Balcombe parish Council and residents which

they said was about sharing information, educating the community and reaching a peaceful conclusion to the matter. Drilling at the site has been temporarily suspended over fears for staff security, it is planned to resume as soon as police deem the area safe. No Dash for Gas said they will continue to campaign alongside Balcombe residents and will

Mr Tourism’s fond farewell to Brighton Frank le Duc ADAM BATES has the £1 billion job. That’s how much money tourism and the conference trade generates for the local economy. After ten years as the head of tourism in Brighton and Hove, Mr Bates is leaving at the end of the year to set up his own conference business – His job title has changed a few times over those years – he is now the head of tourism and leisure at Brighton and Hove City Council. And the value generated by visitors probably exceeds the £1 billion estimate produced two years ago by researchers in a report about the economic impact of tourism. He occupies the Mayor’s office at Brighton Town Hall. He said: “When I started, I was put in here and told it would be temporary. Ten years later, I’m still here.” The Mayor and her team are billeted next door. If that’s not enough to lift the spirits, a glance at Brighton’s record as a destination over the past ten years ought to gladden the hearts of those who care about our city by the sea. Mr Bates said: “The value of tourism grew by about £195 million between 2003 and 2010. So the city has done OK in the face of stiff competition. “But the last few years have undoubtedly been tough for local businesses. “The Brighton Centre generates events with a value of around £60 million to the economy each year and the Convention Bureau generates a similar amount of new business each year.” Next month the Labour Party conference arrives in town, with dozens of hotels full booked. Many more pubs, bars and restaurants can expect to do a good trade. The Convention Bureau attracts not only the high-profile annual party conferences but year-round bookings from trade unions and a host of academic, medical and religious organisations among others. The British Red Cross, the Mind, Body and Spirit Festival and the Brighton Marathon exhibition are all booked in over the coming year. Mr Bates returned to Brighton to start his current job in 2003. He spent four years here as a student. He did a degree in hotel and catering management at the poly – now Brighton University. Then he went to work for Disneyland Paris as a management trainee. From there he joined the British Tourist Authority which rebranded itself as Visit Britain ten years ago – the same year that Mr Bates came back to Brighton. It wasn’t long before the new head of tourism was running Visit

Adam Bates has spent ten years promoting Brighton to the world

Brighton. He is proud of setting up Visit Brighton “and its transition from a service with no partners to one with 450 and from a service which relied upon printed brochures to one driven by a digital offering”. The money contributed by those 450 partners pays for the way Brighton promotes itself to tourists, the conference trade and a host of other visitors. Mr Bates said that it has played a crucial role in helping new events and attraction come to the city – everything from helping get the Marathon and Brighton Wheel taken through the permissions required. He has also played a role in the re-establishment of Brighton and Hove’s Commemorative Plaque Panel and is delighted to see blue plaques remembering notable lives and their local links. He was involved in securing the booking for the Council of Europe conference in Brighton last year. The world’s media reported from the town, generating millions of pounds of free publicity. Bids for conference business involve the tedium of completing lengthy tender documents. And the competition from rival resorts is fierce. But Mr Bates said: “All of these (conferences) have been with the aim of securing opportunities for employment for our communities and local people.” The visitor economy is reckoned to keep more than 18,000 people in work – the equivalent of more than 13,000 full-time jobs. Brighton’s rivals were once considered to be the likes of Bournemouth and Blackpool. Mr Bates is far too diplomatic to describe somewhere like Blackpool as the last resort. But he suggests that these days Brighton is more of a global competitor up against the likes of Melbourne, Barcelona and Copenhagen. He doesn’t have the budget to advertise heavily. Instead Visit Brighton courts the media around the world. Mr Bates said: “It’s about getting

new and repeat business to the city. We do that in three ways. “The Visit Brighton website – it’s gone from 10,000 to 1.8 million unique users a year since it was set up eight years ago and 12 million page impressions. “We facilitate the press, hosting 100-plus journalists a year, mostly international, getting reach in publications and feeding them with good images and providing stock pictures.” He is mindful of the debate about the Brighton Centre and calls to replace it. He played a key part in the refurbishment since when tens of millions of pounds of bookings have been generated. He said: “It would be lovely to have a new conference centre but it’s not going to happen any time soon. Not in this economic climate. “You wouldn’t get a lot of change out of £120 million for a new Brighton Centre. “The absolute trick to our future success is not about bricks and mortar. It’s about events. It’s about reasons to visit. And it’s about balancing out the seasonal impacts. The biggest event coming up for Mr Bates, 44, a married father of two, is his departure from the council. He said: “It’s a destination comparison website for conference organisers. One of the principle choices a conference organiser makes is about their location. “There’s a £121 billion spend on travel and tourism in the UK and business tourism accounts for a third of that with conferences accounting for third of that. “The site is UK-based but international and high end. It’s Trip Advisor for the conference trade. “I hope to develop a business which can employ talented local people. I hope it will succeed internationally and will be associated with Brighton and Hove.” Frank le Duc is founder and editor of Brighton and Hove News, the leading daily online news service for Brighton and Hove.

A theatre of cruelty – a fear factory

In 2011, Londoner Chevonea Kendall-Bryan, just 13, also fell to her death, in her case 60 feet from her bedroom window. A month before she died, she had reported rape by two boys. Mobile-phone footage and a video of the alleged assaults were passed around her school. She died in view of one of her abusers.

The humiliation of cyber-bullying is often the final straw for victims who have experienced other abuse and, typically, have not been protected by adults



THREE WEEKS ago, 14-year-old Hannah Smith hanged herself at home in Leicestershire after months of bullying. Users of the social-networking website, Ask. fm. called Hannah an “ugly f****” - urging her to cut herself, “drink bleach”, and “get cancer”. Last July, Daniel Perry, 17, died after jumping from the Forth Road Bridge in Scotland. He had been targeted by blackmailers on Skype, who demanded payment after telling him they had film of a sexual indiscretion with a teenage girl. He died after pleading: “What can I do to stop you showing this to my family?”

writing notes about how I wanted to kill myself. I felt so horrible and alone.” Poppy’s father set up Cybersmile, a Brighton-based charity that campaigns to make cyber-bullying illegal. He feels police and schools “simply do not do enough” to support victims. I am sure he is right - and hope Poppy and he have been heartened by recent increased media and police awareness of abuse on Twitter. I worry, however, that a tooexclusive focus on cyber-bullying and the mechanics of website management - both of which fascinate the media - diverts attention from the grubby reality that all forms of bullying remain widespread. It’s true that the internet allows anonymity to abusers, while giving them unprecedented access to victims. But it is bullying that is the problem. Child-suicide following bullying is nothing new. In 2008, Belinda Allen, a West Sussex schoolgirl of 14, hanged herself from a tree after she was verbally bullied by classmates. A year earlier, 11-year-old Ben Vodden, a student at the same school, hanged himself after bullying on the school bus. In fact, at least 20 child-victims kill themselves each year. The humiliation of cyberbullying is often the final straw for victims who have experienced other abuse and, typically, have not been protected by adults. Prior to her death, Chevonea Kendall-Bryan endured three years of physical, emotional and sexual bullying at the hands of 11 boys, which she and others had reported. Teachers dismissed the abuse as “kids being cruel” and she herself was called a “narcissistic attentionseeker”. Chevonea started to self-harm in class and tried to take an overdose there. She was made to sign an “anti-bullying contract” with six of her tormentors, implying equal

Planners to decide on future of three Hove schools

Brighton & Hove Independent Friday, August 23 2013 9

For sale board proves costly for Brighton estate agent A ‘FOR SALE’ board erected in a central conservation area has landed a Brighton estate agent with fines and costs of nearly £1,000. A representative from Sawyer & Co Sales and Lettings Ltd appeared at Brighton Magistrates court last week and admitted erecting the board outside a property in Howard Place. Magistrates heard that Brighton

Aldrington Church of England Primary School wants to extend its current building

THREE MAJOR APPLICATIONS for Hove schools will be decided by the town’s planners at a meeting next week. Cardinal Newman Catholic School, in The Upper Drive, Hove, has applied to build a three-storey detached block on the northern side of its current buildings. It intends to relocate 40 parking spaces to the south east corner of the site. Aldrington Church of England Primary School in Eridge Road, Hove, wants to extend its current building and carry out alterations as it has agreed to take extra pupils. Brighton and Hove City Council has already agreed that the number of school places at Aldrington should rise to ease a shortage locally.

Aldrington intends to put up a two-storey block and build a link corridor. The school hall will also be extended and new parking spaces created. And the council’s Planning Committee will also look at a proposal for the old police station in Holland Road, Hove. The council is seeking permission for a change of use and to build an extension up to three storeys high. It wants to demolish the garages at the back of the building and carry out a number of other alterations to turn it into an annex of West Hove Junior School. Councillors are being asked to approve all three applications at a meeting at Hove Town Hall at 2pm next Wednesday (28 August).

Council takes action over unauthorised loft conversion A PROPERTY OWNER who converted the top floor of a listed building into two flats without permission has been told to change it back. Michael Hamdan, owner of 6 Palmeira Square, has been served with two enforcement notices by Brighton and Hove City Council. The planning enforcement and listed building notices give Mr Hamdan nine months to stop using the fourth floor and internal roof-space as two separate planning units and convert the space back to one single flat. The four storey terraced building is located on the east side of Palmeira Square within the Brunswick Square Conservation area. The building was listed in 1971. In April last year, Brighton and Hove City Council received a complaint that unauthorised building work was being carried

out at the property. A council planning enforcement officer visited the premises and advised the builder to stop work. The following month, following a successful prosecution for unauthorised works to a listed building, the officer made a second visit. He discovered that work had continued, and that the fourth floor and roof space had been converted into two flats. Neither planning permission nor listed building consent has been granted for the alterations. In August 2012 and January this year Mr Hamdan applied for retrospective planning permission to convert the fourth floor and roof space into two flats, both applications were refused. Officers concluded that the work had not only harmed the character of the listed building, but potentially weakened its structure.

& Hove City Council had warned the company about erecting boards in central residential conservation areas, following a similar incident in Buckingham Place. The company was fined £325 and ordered to pay £610 court costs and £32.50 victim surcharge. Councillor Phélim Mac Cafferty, chair of planning, said: “This prosecution shows that our planning

officers are committed to enforcing the ban on estate agent boards within the central conservation areas. “I would like to thank the majority of estate agents who are complying with the regulations. This prosecution should give them confidence that court action will continue to be taken against those estate agents that fail to comply with the regulations.”

Many ways to remember the First World War

It’s time we valued our councillors properly SHOULD councillors get paid? And how much are they worth? It was disclosed this week that the 54 elected members of Brighton and Hove City Council claimed a total of £865,357 for the 2012-2013 financial year, a sum that includes basic allowances, travel claims, and childcare costs. Unsurprisingly, Jason Kitcat, the council leader, claimed the most - receiving £39,179. Is that too much? Or too little? On average, each councillor claimed £16,025. To put it another way, councillors cost each one of us £3.15 a year - or 6p a week. Crude mathematical calculations, however, cannot answer the questions we posed. Surely, we need to know how hard councillors work. Attendance at meetings is one metric. Seven Green Party councillors reportedly missed more than one in five (22%) of their scheduled council meetings in the year to April 30. Nevertheless, six of the seven were able to claim their full basic allowance of £11,463. Attendance at meetings may be necessary. But it is not sufficient. There remains the question of how effective councillors are. How on earth do we measure that? We are perhaps on more certain ground when we compare earnings - leaving aside whether or not being a councillor is a part-time, or a full-time, job. Some 165 council employees - out of about 8,000 - earn more than £50,000 a year. In contrast, the Brighton Living Wage is

£7.45 an hour - equivalent to a salary of £13,560, assuming a 35-hour week. Clearly, we do not wish to be represented only by the wellheeled or the well-pensioned. In the end, perhaps the laws of supply and demand should decide. After all, we are not short of councillors. Or are we? The truth is that each of the main political parties finds it difficult to attract potential candidates, even in the minority of “winnable” seats. First-time candidates are vetted only by cliques of party apparatchiks, understandably keen to share out the mostwinnable seats among themselves and their ilk. Others are on the ballot paper simply because they are incumbent councillors - their canditatures barely questioned, regardless of their performance in office. Others are “paper” candidates - whose names appear on the ballot paper, but who have little expectation of winning - and even less desire to be a councillor. There is little preparation for well-meaning individuals aspiring to a job that has no job description, no definition of success, and little in the way of professional development. So how many candidates with a realistic chance of winning have the skills and experience to be good candidates and good councillors? Indeed, what constitutes “a good councillor”? Only once we have addressed these questions, can we sensibly ask how much councillors should get paid.

I LIVE in Hove and have a strong interest in the First World War. I am a member of the Western Front Association and the online Great War Forum - where I post regularly as “Michael Bully” - and have done some research on the First World War and Hove. With regard to “How will we remember them?” (page 3, August 9), perhaps Brighton & Hove Independent could publish a series of articles about individual men from Brighton and Hove who served. It would be good to ensure that the Royal Navy - and the newly-emerged Air Force - are remembered as well as the Army. Perhaps examples from the different fronts could be taken into account, to ensure the Gallipoli, Mesopotamia (Iraq) and Salonika

campaigns are not forgotten. Also, it would be great to have pictures of war memorials from around the city particularly from churches - and a guide to find war graves in the cemeteries. I have researched some of the First World War graves in Hove Cemetery. Finally, I would like to see coverage of daily civilian life during the war in Brighton and Hove, how the Indian soldiers came to stay, refugees who settled in the area, and how women’s lives were

I LOOK forward to seeing Kevin Toolis's Gordon Brown inspired play next month, mentioned in last week’s paper, although (because?) I am not a member of the Labour Party. Incidentally, in his piece for the B&H Independent, Kevin refers to his subject as "this superbly capable, moral man"; and he is of course entitled to his opinion, one that is, perhaps, shared by G Brown himself. I just wonder whether lumbering UK taxpayers

with massive debts for the rest of this century, and incidentally squeezing the life out of several hospitals and other institutions, all through his liberal use of the Private Finance Initiative, just so that he could keep the costs off the official books, is a sign of either capability or morality, as I understand the terms. Rather typically, perhaps, PFI was originally a scheme thought up by a Conservative Government,

but readily adopted by Brown during his Chancellorship. I find it interesting, too, that having criticised Brown's use of it, the present administration is now going back to the idea. All which reinforces me in my belief that the main political parties in this country are just wings of one central, but rather rightwardleaning party! Bruce Smith Gloucester Rd, Brighton

I WRITE in response to the article placed in last week’s issue regarding the Gordon Brown play – “The failure of a moral Politician.” Mr Toolis’ play about Gordon Brown sounds interesting, but “hope” as the thing we look for in a leader? The public now see through commodity clones. Obama and Blaire’s failure, Afghanistan, Iraq,

endless images on television in undeclared wars of children blown to death have led to the public way past considerations of leaders images – whether they are 5 foot 7 inches – they expect results. The public are sick and tired of “no results – failure – inevitability” politics. In my opinion, Gordon Brown was the only leader who did one thing at least; he brought

in Tax Credits that helped self-employment and therefore had the effect of facilitating individual enterprise, the realisation of ideas (for example the Princes Trust). What caused his failure? You would have to read psychologists Adler, Freud or Jung to work out that one. David de Pinna Oriental Place, Hove

Brighton Digital Festival organises Hackathon ON 13-15 September, a group of artists, designers, software developers and data scientists will come together for 48 hours at the Brighton FuseBox to try to explain one of the most baffling events of our time; the global financial crisis and the recession that it caused. Having assembled a large amount of public data about the crisis, participants will be asked to interrogate it to provide new insights and use digital and physical graphics and art to display their findings. So what exactly is a Hackathon? Traditionally, a Hackathon involves teams of computer programmers and developers collaborating intensively on problem solving and IT projects. Hackathons, or ‘hacks’, can last from a few hours to a few weeks and often involve participants working, eating and sleeping at the event. What makes this event stand out? The organisers are aiming to do something special by combining the two biggest talent pools in the city of Brighton and Hove – ‘technologists’ and ‘creatives.’ Co-organiser Peter Passaro explains: “Hackathons are a disruptive force. The stuff you can do with data now is incredible and our event will combine cutting edge

technology with data experts and creative minds to generate a unique output that will be interactive and artistic.” Brighton has built a reputation as a digital and creative hub. With over 1,000 digital and technology companies in the city, 1 in 5 jobs are within creative industries (source: The Drum). “It’s the perfect place to run a Hackathon,” comments fellow organiser Sam Zindel. “How many cities in the world could boast the array of talent in Brighton? It’s a playground of innovators, digital specialists and artists. “One of the most exciting things is we have no idea what will be created in the FuseBox during the 48hr projects. So there’s no telling what will be on display in the gallery space!” Previous hackathons have generated an iPad app that shows you what is on the other side of the planet when you point it at the ground, a ‘data-dress’ made from Tweeted images during London Fashion Week and a searchable map that simulates the weather in a city of your choice using running water, heat lamps and a fan. Brighton Digital Festival is a month-long celebration of

3D printing to come to Brighton Digital Festival WITH THE help of an installation artist, expert sand sculptor, fibreglass guru, and some technological wizardry, Developing Dreams are dragging the concept of the photo booth kicking and screaming into the age of 3D printing and low cost 3D scanning. As part of the Brighton Digital Festival, you can visit the interactive installation ‘Break The Mould’ to get scanned, digitised and recreated as a 3D printed mini you. The installation will be hard to miss as it is housed inside a stunning 4m high maternal sculpture. It will make its debut at the Brighton Maker Faire on 7 September at the Corn Exchange and will be on tour during the festival: Corn Exchange (7 – 8 September); Jubilee Library (9 – 22 September); Clearleft’s new gallery space at 68 Middle Street (24 – 29 September); Mad Hatter Cafe (30 September – 4 October). Kati Byrne of Developing Dreams, the Brighton based digital agency behind Break the Mould, said: “We wanted to give people the opportunity to experience this emerging technology in an immersive environment that is personal, memorable and engaging. Many people have heard about 3D printing, but only a few have seen it in action, which is something we would like to change. It’s not a

revolution, but evolution of fabrication and liberalisation of individual expression.” Emilia Telese, the artist who designed the giant sculpture, is known for her installation of the Royal Pavilion made out of rice, and has exhibited worldwide at the 51st Venice Biennale, Tate Britain, Royal Festival Hall, and the Louvre. She said: “3D printers are very mechanical and impersonal. I wanted to add something feminine to a male dominated world such as the technology industry, which is where the idea of motherhood came from. Getting a little sculpture of yourself is like giving birth to a little you. I hope this installation will help make 3D printers more human and accessible.” Mark Anderson, a renowned sand sculptor and founder of Sand World in Weymouth, was commissioned to create the giant 4m tall woman as a mould testing a new way of making casts. To avoid shifting thousands of tonnes of sand, the sculpture is being carved in the Redhill sand quarry to the delight of Sibelco quarry workers. The installation already has the backing of some of the big names within the 3D printing industry and the Brighton digital scene including iMakr, Faberdashery, MCR print and Brighton’s new digital hub The Fusebox.

My message is: “get a life” Mike Holland WOULDN’T IT be great if our politicians did what we asked them to do instead of what they think we want? The only way we are going to achieve that is to all participate in the running of our country and actually vote. Apparently, according to statistics, circa 40% of us on the electoral register never vote at all. I firmly believe it should be as compulsory to vote as it is to fill in the census form in order to obtain a true picture of what people actually want from government. A vote for or against any ruling party is far more powerful and infinitely more democratic than any demonstration. In fact I believe in many cases demonstrations are counter-productive and alienate people who would otherwise be

supportive to a cause. Currently I would say that the Balcombe rent-a-mob we see everywhere, at every demonstration, are turning more people away from the very sensible notion that searching for shale gas in the proposed manner is not a good idea. They seem to think that turning up at these events is somehow cool and making our planet safer. The reality is that most of us are simply sick of hearing from these idiots and tend to dismiss whatever they are talking about as complete nonsense, which is why I say they are counterproductive. We do have to look at alternative means of energy though and we should all be lobbying our MPs to do so. It’s not just about high powered climate change conferences which most of us feel about as far removed from as the notion that we are all going to jump on a bike and start cycling in mid-winter. We were once a nation of leaders in industry with many of the best inventive minds in the

world on our shores. The rest of the world followed us and we were a proud nation. Now we follow Brussels directives and simply talk of meeting recycling and energy quotas by some distant date in the future. What a terribly sad situation we are in and our politicians for the main part follow along with this nonsense like sheep. Why are we not pushing ourselves as a nation to become world leaders in alternatives to fossil fuels? Let’s stop worrying about who we upset and encourage this great British entrepreneurial nation to rise up to the challenge and show the world the way. What happens on this tiny island has only approximately 0.01% of the world’s pollution problems to deal with but with our inventive skills we can make a huge difference worldwide in showing others the way. In 1887 the man I believe was Brighton’s greatest inventor of all time was the first person to export an electric cart. He sent it off to one of the Sultans of Turkey. The following year he sent the Sultan an electric

boat. Yet 127 years later I am driving an electric car which still only has a range of 80 miles before charging. This cannot be right in an age when we run our lives with a microchip in our mobile phones, ipads and laptops. Are we really suggesting in 2013 that this is the best we can do?

My message to these counterproductive eco warrior wingers is; “get a life”, re-join the rest of society and push for change along with the rest of us rather than alienating people with these continual small child antics. @RealMikeHolland

Local accountant joins NSPCC 1600 Club Superhero family fun day PLUS ACCOUNTING, a firm of chartered accountants in Brighton, are one of the many local businesses that have already joined the NSPCC 1600 Club. The NSPCC is calling on businesses in Brighton and Hove to sign up to the 1600 Club Challenge, to help raise funds for ChildLine. Businesses that sign up to the 1600 Club set themselves a target to raise a minimum of £1,600 to help protect vulnerable children and young people in Brighton and Hove and across the UK. £1,600

could allow ChildLine to train one new volunteer counsellor, or to answer 400 calls from a child in need of help or advice. Throughout the challenge, businesses can access fundraising support to help them reach their target. In 2012-13, ChildLine received 994 calls from landline numbers in Brighton and Hove, an increase from 434 the previous year. Vicky King of Plus Accounting was first introduced to the 1600 Club after hearing about it from a colleague who sat on the NSPCC’s

Brighton Business Board. Vicky said: “We became involved in the 1600 Club in June 2012 – the NSPCC is our nominated charity. It’s such a worthwhile cause so it’s great for us as a company to be able to support them, but being a part of something like the 1600 Club also has a knock-on effect in other areas of the business.” To find out more about the 1600 Club, visit uk/getinvolved, or contact NSPCC corporate fundraising manager Ros Bird on

Campaigners target Tesco over sale of lads’ mags

This Saturday (August 24), campaigners from Brighton and Hove will be participating in a national day of action to urge the retailer Tesco to stop selling pornographic lads’ mags. They will be asking Tesco to drop publications like Nuts and Zoo from their stores because they fuel attitudes underpinning violence against women, and exposing customers to them can constitute sexual harassment or sex discrimination under the Equality Act. Tesco is under fire for selling pornographic lads’ mags because research shows they fuel sexist attitudes and behaviours. Thousands of people have called on the retailer to take action through an online petition and social media, while organisations backing the campaign include End Violence Against Women, Imkaan, Equality Now, Local Mums Online, Gransnet and writer Natasha Walter. 18 top lawyers specialising in equality and discrimination law have also signed an open

letter calling on retailers to lose the lads’ mags. They write that selling and displaying lads’ mags and papers with Page 3- style front cover images can constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment. Employees could take legal action on this basis and, where the magazine is visibly on display, customers could also have a claim. As the UK’s largest retailer, the implications for Tesco are substantial. Tesco operates 3146 stores. Polly Neate, chief executive of Women’s Aid, said: “This campaign is a brilliant way to show retailers and publishers that the public will not stand for casual misogyny any longer. Young women should not have to walk past images which show them as passive sex objects and legitimate targets for male sexual aggression every day, as they do now. Lads’ mags are not ‘banter’, they repeat damaging sexist ideas and objectify women. We urge retailers to take note of this campaign and act to remove these magazines before they face a full legal challenge.”

Laura Lockington The Crocodile by the Door, by Selina Guinness HOT TOWN, summer in the city. Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty... it is a great song, isn’t it? And I’m sure we’ve all had that feeling over this summer. A stifling night can take its toll on even the most ardent of city-dwellers. Sometimes, the lure of some cool green fields is just too tempting. Then one’s thoughts turn to: could I live here? What would it be like to live in the country? On a farm, maybe? The easy way to find out, before rushing to the estate agents, is to read this book. When Selina Guinness and her partner, Colin, both young academics, moved in with Selina’s uncle, Charles, an elderly bachelor, they had no idea what the coming years held for them: a crash-course in farming, tense discussions with helicopter-borne property developers, human tragedy, and the challenge of dragging a quasi-feudal estate at the edge of Dublin into the

21st century. This is a fascinating book, which gripped me with tales of lambing (something I never thought I’d be gripped with, frankly), Kafkaesque bureaucracy, and the importance of the right sort of Wellington boots. I loved this book and the writing is a joy to read; the sense of place and home makes you feel that you could be walking the muddy fields with her. But would I swap living in the hot city by the sea? Err...No. No thanks. My Wellington boots simply aren’t up to the job.

GCSE results: How ou Greg Hadfield THIS YEAR’S GCSE results in Brighton and Hove schools showed a significant improvement - with Brighton College, a private school, claiming the title of the country’s highest-performing co-educational school ever. Provisional results for state schools showed an increase of nearly six percentage points overall. The percentage of pupils achieving the

Brighton College Easter Road Brighton BN2 0AL 2013 A*/A grades: 95.3% At least five A grades: 100% 103 (out of 144 candidates) secured A/A* in every exam 838 A* grades and only 6 C grades

benchmark of five good GCSEs - five grades A*-C, including English and mathematics rose to 62%, from 56% last year. Councillor Sue Shanks, chair of the council’s children and young people committee, said: “We’re pushing hard for excellence in all our schools. “Our schools team has developed a new approach to school improvement over the last year. There’s a sharper focus on analysing performance data, getting schools to work more closely with each other, and targeting support at where it is most needed.” Cllr Shanks highlighted the “exceptional progress” made by Portslade Aldridge Community Academy and Blatchington Mill School.

Jenny Barnard-Langston, chair of governors at Blatchnigton Mill, said: “Our results fly in the face of the national picture of turbulence. Our story is one of staff focus, partnership with parents, and the sheer hard work of the students.” At Portslade Aldridge Community Academy, James Fox, the principal, said: ‘’An improvement of more than 50% is a great achievement and today’s exceptional results are all about hard work - by our students and by our staff. This is the best set of GCSEs ever for the school - not just as an academy, but for Portslade Community College too, I believe.” William Deighan, headteacher of Varndean School, said 63% of

We are Brighton & Hove Independent

Greg Hadfield, Editorial director

THIS NEWSPAPER seeks to celebrate our city – and the achievements of all the people who make Brighton and Hove what it is. The people are the city. We are independent: independently-owned; independent in our approach. We are Brighton & Hove Independent. We want to add value to the city – and not extract profits to be shipped to shareholders in London or in the United States. Of course, our city has its challenges. And we are not afraid to address those. With passion and with purpose. We want to work with our fellow citizens to build a 21st-century media platform for a 21st-century city – a platform on which the city can have a conversation with itself, on which businesses can do business. We all deserve better than what is currently on offer. So what is our plan? We don’t have one. This is a journey. Not a map.

And you are our companions. Our mentors. Our guides. Our compass. Together, we are Brighton & Hove Independent. Together, we can draw some lines in the shifting sands of our lives, our city: • We will not lie; we will not knowingly disseminate untruths;

• We may not always tell the whole truth; nobody can; • We will correct factual inaccuracies; we will let others tell their truths. (Truth is a noun, with a plural as well as a singular.); • We will earn your trust; • We will publish for – not at; • At our best, we will publish with.

Because this is our city. Currently, Brighton & Hove Independent is a newspaper. Soon, it will have a new website. Within two years, we hope it will be ubiquitous, as omnipresent as the air you breathe, wherever you want it, whenever you need it. We hope to execute and inspire

journalism as a service, not as a product. We cannot do it by ourselves. We may not be able to do it, even with your help. But we will try. Please help us. Join us on the journey We are Brighton & Hove Independent.

Mark Ansell Managing Director Mark is the managing director and founder of Brighton & Hove Independent. He formed the newspaper in August 2011 after deciding that the city lacked a quality weekly newspaper that properly served the community and supported local business. After working in insurance and pensions for a number of years, Mark joined a Chichester-based newspaper in 2008 as an advertising executive. After three years, he was not only managing the sales department, but also responsible for the operations, distribution and finances for the newspaper. Having lived in Brighton most of his life, Mark took the experience gained and brought the free local newspaper concept to Brighton and Hove. Despite a volatile economy and tough competition, since the launch in August 2011, the team has grown from two to seven staff and circulation has increased by 400%.

To establish itself further as a trusted and authoritative newspaper, Greg Hadfield – a former Fleet Street newspaper executive - joined Mark as editorial director in July 2013. Greg Hadfield Editorial Director Greg was the first national newspaper journalist to leave Fleet Street for the internet in the mid-1990s. A former news editor of The Sunday Times and senior investigative journalist for the Daily Mail, he and his son, Tom - then aged 12 - created Soccernet, the world’s most popular football website, in 1995. Four years later, after Soccernet was sold to ESPN for $40m, Greg created Schoolsnet, an education website, which he sold to a company co-owned by Jeremy Hunt, now Secretary of State for Health. More recently, he was head of digital development at Telegraph Media Group and director of strategic projects at Cogapp, a Brighton-based digital agency. After organising the UK's first

Open-data Cities Conference in April 2012, he became co-owner and editorial director of Brighton & Hove Independent in July 2013. Three times winner in the British Press Awards, Greg - who is married with two grown-up children - has lived in Brighton and Hove since 1986. Twitter: @GregHadfield Lynn James Advertising Manager Lynn joined Brighton & Hove Independent in January 2012 and has played a key role in increasing advertising revenue to fuel the newspaper's expansion over the last year. Before joining Brighton & Hove Independent, Lynn gained more than 15 years’ experience in various mediabased industries across London. Her knowledge of the industry ensures constant development of the product to ensure the newspaper serves advertisers effectively and successfully. Now living in Brighton, Lynn has

THE popular Yellowave sports venue on Brighton Beach has been planning permission to add a £120,000 club house to its facilities. The Madeira Drive venue opened in 2007 and has just enjoyed its busiest summer yet. It is hoped the club house will allow it to operate all year round.

Fracking II




A STACK of abandoned bicycles have been restored and sold to generate welcome funds for Sussex Central YMCA. The bikes were donated by the city council and made more than £5,000 once repaired and sold. They had been found in the city and never been claimed.

The Brighton Centre has secured a three year contact to stage the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) South East Conference and Exhibition. Early estimates suggest the deal could bring in around £2.4million to the city’s economy.

THE wonderfully titled Great Elephant Adventure morning is being held between 10am and noon on August 30 at Wish Park – with the city council hoping local youngsters will head down and help inspire the artists planning how best to decorate a new playground shelter.

Hove MP slams ‘lifestyle protestors’ THE TORY MP for Hove meanwhile took a very different stance on the Balcombe debate. He criticized what he called “professional protestors” who he says “have latched on to the anti-fracking cause without really assessing the evidence”.

The city has come to life Stuart Dorn

Brighton Racecourse

WELL it seems like the city has come to life with sport over the last couple of weeks. We had Australia down at Hove with Sussex Cricket Club, the Albion kicked off this season’s campaign and then we had our August Racing Festival. This year the festival featured something for everyone, starting with the thirteenth year of support from John Smiths with their race day and the John Smiths Brighton Mile. This was followed hot on the heels with Frosts Ladies Day, with a fantastic array of outfits and hat on display! For 2013 we finished the Festival with Fundraising Friday, raising funds and awareness for Teenage Cancer Trust, Chrones In Childhood Research Association and a charity based in the City, Whoopsadaisy. Just to make sure everyone closed the Festival in

Ladies from race sponsor judge best groomed Horse Inset: Scouting for Girls performed to a sell-out crowd at the racecourse

a party mood, the outstanding Scouting for Girls took to the stage. It was not just the themes that we had over the three days, we also featured some fantastic racing and were fortunate enough to welcome great jockeys to the course. Champion Jockey Richard Hughes came down, one of the world’s best Ryan Moore came and did not win but his sister Hayley did!

One of the things that stood out for me was how over the three days we had nearly twenty thousand people coming through the turnstiles. At the end of all the sporting events mentioned at the start of this article, it never ceases to amaze me how the City gets behind all of the sport taking place – part of what makes living and working here so great!

Now for our next race meeting with our Gatwick Airport Family Fun Day in support of Rockinghorse on Sunday 1st September followed with the Harrington’s Lettings Landlord and Tenants Day on the 2nd September – two great days for all of the family, and a perfect way to finish the summer holidays, especially as children under 18 are free!

Washington and Wahlberg join forces 2 Guns (15)

they’re not quite as laugh-outloud hilarious as the filmmakers obviously think they are. On top of that, Kormakur maintains a decent pace throughout and orchestrates a number of satisfying shoot outs and suspense moments along the way.

Running time: 109 mins Director: Baltasar Kormákuri Starring: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Bill Paxton

Enjoyable, pacily directed and pleasingly old fashioned buddy cop thriller enlivened by a witty script and engaging chemistry between Wahlberg and Washington. What’s it all about? Directed by Baltasar Kormakur, 2 Guns is based on the Boom! Studios graphic novels by Steven Grant and stars Denzel Washington as undercover DEA agent Bobby Trench, who robs a than they were expecting, they are bank with motor-mouthed partner forced to go on the run, pursued Michael ‘Stig’ Stigman (Mark by their respective bosses (Robert Wahlberg) – unaware that Stig is John Burke and James Marsden), also an undercover agent, for Naval the cartel and a ruthless CIA Intelligence - in order to infiltrate hitman (Bill Paxton). a Mexican drug cartel headed by Papi Greco (Edward James The Good Olmos). However, when the pair Wahlberg and Washington have get away with much more money1 12/8/13 an appealingly Love Brighton-1608:Layout 14:00 sparky Page chemistry 1

that harks back to the likes of classic buddy cop thrillers such as Lethal Weapon – there’s even the regulation “manly tussle in the dirt” scene. Wahlberg is particularly good value, talking nineteen to the dozen throughout and basically winging it, while there are colourful turns from the likes of Edward James Olmos

and James Marsden, though the supporting honours are roundly stolen by Bill Paxton, who’s both chilling and darkly funny as the CIA-sponsored killer. The plot is basically nonsense, but the script has fun with the various twists and turns and the dialogue frequently throws up an amusing one-liner, even if

The Bad It’s fair to say that some of the comedy character moments don’t quite ring true (such as Washington insisting on shooting Wahlberg because he shot him in an earlier scene, like a school bully who always has to get in the last punch). Similarly, Paula Patton is distinctly under used as Bobby’s colleague-slash-love interest, though in a testosterone heavy film like this, that’s not particularly surprising (the only other female character is a waitress Wahlberg flirts with in the opening scene). Worth seeing? 2 Guns isn’t exactly breaking any new ground, but it’s a solidly enjoyable buddy cop thriller with a decent script and a winning partnership between Wahlberg and Washington. Worth seeing.

Brits still going bananas says smart survey

The nation gets ready as the Great British Bake Off returns

BANANAS remain top of the tree when it comes to the UK’s favourite fruit, according to the latest shopping insights provided by Shopitize. In its July insights survey, one of the questions Shopitize asked shoppers using its app was ‘what is your favourite fruit?’ Over 2,600 unique responses show that the banana has once again come out on top. According to these Shopitize app users, 26% say the banana is their favourite fruit, with 23% backing the apple, 19% saying grapes, 11% oranges and 7% pears. The banana owes its enduring success to being both healthy and affordable, say the experts from Shopitize. Bananas are one of your ‘five a day’ essentials and are seen as a healthy tasty snack that fuels the body with slow release energy. Bananas are also one of the cheaper fruits on the market with prices halving in the last ten years. According to the Fairtrade Foundation the price of bananas in the UK has dropped from £1.10 a kg in 2002 to just 68p today. Supermarkets are selling ‘everyday value bananas’ for as little as 14p each.

THE AWARD-WINNING Great British Bake Off is back on our screens and Waitrose is already seeing keen bakers stock up on homebaking essentials. Shoppers are preparing their kitchen for the next ten weeks of baking challenges by stocking up on new equipment. Sales of 1litre Pyrex bowls are up by 107%, rolling pins by 40% and measuring jugs by 313% at the supermarket. Shoppers are trying to create Mary Berry’s signature bake, the Victoria sponge, with sales of sandwich tins up by 80%. A focal point in the shows’ ‘technical challenge’, digital kitchen timers are up 60%, helping to ensure there are no ‘soggy bottoms’ this year! Style as well as substance is important for showstopping cakes. Sales of decorations such as shimmer sugar and edible glitters are up by 173% at Waitrose - adding a touch of glitz and glamour to homemade sweet treats. Also proving popular are natural food colourings up 64% and cupcake decorations up 63%. Key store cupboard staples

are being restocked with sales of flour up by 20%, sugar up by 13% and other ingredients such as baking powder and bicarbonate of soda rising by 18%. Sales of traditional cooking fruits such as raisins, sultanas and cherries are also up 47%, as the popularity of traditional bakes continues to increase. Baking beginners are trying

their hand in the kitchen too, with sales of fuss free cake mixes up 44%. The supermarket launched these cake mixes earlier this year in their essential Waitrose range, so shoppers can whip up freshly baked cakes without the need for multiple ingredients. Jo Heywood, Waitrose Homebaking Buyer says “The

anticipation for the Great British Bake Off is already building and yet again set to cause a stir with our shoppers as they rise to the challenge of recreating recipes from the show. In time for the new series we have our biggest homebaking range yet, so the nation's homebakers will be able to create some sophisticated and classic cakes and bakes”.

Al fresco dining for the great British summer

The only way is British with Essex grown figs

THE GREAT British summer season is in full swing and the longer, lighter days we treasure have returned for another year. There has never been a better time to move the dining room outdoors for a relaxed al fresco banquet in the evening sun. It’s often the hassle of cooking dishes in a hot kitchen, which put people off making homemade meals during summer, but why not dust off the BBQ, which provides you with a healthy way to enjoy food. Try a Tuna with Black Bean & Mango Salsa recipe, which allows you to grill the tuna steaks on the BBQ. Plus, black beans are a great source of fibre, which aids with digestion and canned mangoes, in their own juice, counts towards your 5-A-DAY. Tuna with Black Bean & Mango Salsa Serves: 4 Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes Ingredients 4 tuna steaks 4 Tbsp light soy sauce 1 Tbsp olive oil Seasoning For the salsa: 400g can black beans, drained 400g can mango slices, drained and finely chopped 2 chillies, chopped Juice of 1 lime

THIS AUGUST, Sainsbury’s will be the first and only major supermarket to sell fresh figs grown in Britain. Starting with stores in Essex and London, the home country grower has successfully taken on the challenge to grow fresh fruit that is traditionally found in warmer climates such as Spain and Turkey and as far afield as California. The figs were initially trialled last summer and the crop has expanded due to trees flourishing so well. The cold weather at the beginning of the year means the fruit have taken some time to reach optimum size however the summer heatwave has helped with the ripeness of the figs. The Taste the Difference Figs have been tested and approved by customers, offering the great flavour of the Mediterranean while being home grown. Initially just a handful of fig trees were grown recreationally by the Sicilian growers at the supplier farm Abbey View. However, following Sainsbury’s 20x20 pledge to sell more British produce, Abbey View launched a trial to consider the figs for commercial production. Due to the growing demand for the fruit and the successful acclimatisation of the trees they increased the crop to more than 300 trees.

6 spring onions, chopped Method Marinate the tuna steaks in the soy sauce whilst preparing the salsa. For the salsa, combine the black beans, chopped mango, chillies, lime juice and spring onions. Heat a griddle plate or BBQ. Dry the tuna on kitchen paper, rub with olive oil and season well. Place the tuna on a griddle or barbecue and cook for about two minutes each side – this will depend on the thickness of the tuna, but avoid overcooking. Serve tuna immediately with mango salsa. Hints and Tips Using canned foods minimises mess – they are already prepared in the can and don’t create leftover food waste.

Sainsbury’s exotic fruit technologist Sam Taylor said: “We’re always looking for new ways to offer more great tasting British products in our stores and figs come as the latest success. This is good for British Farmers who want to diversify as well as customers who we know look for UK produced products. It’s been a tough season for our growers so we’re delighted that the crop has flourished so well and we’d encourage our customers in Essex and London to take advantage of this exclusive offer.” Sainsbury’s has been working

with Abbey View growers in Essex for over 50 years, to provide customers with great quality British produce including tomatoes, cucumbers and even peppers and aubergines. The local launch of these Essex-grown figs marks another example of the retailer’s commitment to offer British varieties wherever possible. Figs are a really versatile fruit and make an ideal addition to salads and cheeseboards served fresh, dried or even as a base in preserves. For a simple yet exotic dessert, they’re great poached in syrup with vanilla ice cream.

Makeup - Do we really need so much? End of an era: knee high socks face defeat A GARMENT which once symbolised Britain’s imperial might is marching into history, new figures reveal. Demand for men’s knee high socks has slumped, bringing an end to a century long role of traditional male dress, says high street store Debenhams. Instead, modern men are opting for ankle socks, ultra short sport socks, or in high fashion circles; no socks at all. Said Debenhams spokesperson Ed Watson: “The common phrase ‘pull your socks up’ could mean nothing to future generations.” “Knee length socks once conquered an empire, but now they seem to be fading into history.” Long woollen knee high socks were once standard issue for both the British army and the navy. They were regarded as essential to protect soldiers in the trenches, helping to prevent foot rot which maimed so many troops during World War One. Officers had socks made of a softer, finer weave, while other ranks made do with coarser material. Thousands of women across the UK knitted long socks to send to the troops during both World Wars. So vital a part of life were they, that the Imperial War Museum still

has a collection of knee high socks worn by British military personnel throughout various campaigns. Cold weather was by no means the only reason to wear them; long socks and shorts were also worn by the British army in tropical climates, such as India. The practice of wearing long socks continued into British civilian life when millions of troops were demobilised after World War II. Many were worn with discreet calf garters to prevent them from slipping down the leg. However, the increasing popularity of central heating in British offices and homes saw knee high socks begin their first decent from grace in the 1960s. Modern lightweight shoes have also made wearing thick woollen socks impractical and uncomfortable.

MOST WOMEN underestimate just how much the contents of their make-up bag costs, and in fact the average make-up bag clocks in at around £172 - more than the latest smart phone. But do we really need all these products? The professional spa therapists say no., the UK’s spa bookings specialists, asked leading spa professionals to recommend their top facials for minimising make-up and looking great: Penny Holland, the Spa Director at Moddershall Oaks in Staffordshire commented, “We all know the key to looking good naturally lies in having great skin and having regular facials will both repair and protect skin. Facials are often seen as a luxury or a treat but in fact they are essential skin maintenance especially if you live in a city, as skin is more likely to need a deep clean. “A facial at least 4 times a year would be ideal, using the changing seasons as a guide. If you are taking care of your skin this should enable you to minimise your make up, particularly when it comes to coverage!” Moddershall Oaks recommends the Elemis Modern Skin Facial. This particular treatment is designed for skin challenged by modern living. Bursting with anti-oxidant rich minerals and vitamins, this purifying treatment

helps remove damaging toxins, regenerates skin cells and rebalances sebum. The result? Re-mineralised, rebalanced and renewed skin. Modern spa The Malvern in Worcestershire offers REN Bespoke Facials which are tailored to skin’s specific needs, so whether skin is congested or acting up from stress this facial tackles problems head on. The luxurious treatment incorporates REN’s exclusive Japanese Kobi-Do facial massage technique and steaming with rosefragranced hot towels to create a luxurious, de-stressing experience. The iconic Ragdale Hall offers

the Decleor Ultimate Vitamin Glow Facial. In this relaxing facial a powerful blend of aromatherapy oils tailored to treat your skin concerns are combined with a 100% natural mask, packed full of vitamins and anti-oxidants. Stress simply melts away thanks to five deeply relaxing massage techniques including Decleor's iconic back diagnostic massage. Skin is left deeply cleansed, replenished and glowing with natural radiance. To book one of these top facials, book a spa day or spa break at Day Spa packages start from £32.50.

Taurus 21 April – 21 May It may be you or someone close to you who is in search of intellectual expansion this week and this could involve searching out courses or simply indulging in the reading of some heavy tome. You are feeling particularly light about your career and achieve results effortlessly and are seen as a rising star. Bank this with your superiors! Gemini 22 May – 21 June Financial issues are high on the agenda. And things on that front are looking good. You could be moving up the financial ladder career

wise or investing in a project or just rescheduling your current debts. Anything involving the written word will also prove to be profitable both emotionally and financially. You could be publishing, educating or writing. Cancer 22 June – 22 July You have been putting off change for so long it has become a bit of a habit. Now you are beginning to question the logic of your reticence and ask yourself why have I waited so long. Don’t worry change will gather apace once you have set the wheels in motion. Exciting times are ahead either on many fronts! Leo 23 July – 22 Aug Keep a weather eye on your finances. This is not a time for splashing the cash. That said some past investments should prove to bring profit, if not substantial then certainly sizeable. If you are in a partnership, looking is okay but don’t get caught having a roving eye. If single, then the look is

likely to be returned. Virgo 23 Aug – 23 Sept Now the door is open, walk right through. There are so many opportunities out there just waiting for you. Some suggestions made by friends may at first seem a little bizarre and pushes you outside your comfort zone but you need to adopt the why not approach if you are to fulfill your true potential creatively and emotionally. Libra 24 Sept – 23 Oct Watch your diet and get yourself down the gym or at least take yourself for a bit of stroll. Have a makeover. You will need to feel fighting fit and look your best this week as you are you will be attracting lots of attention. Could even be an old flame that is getting you all worked up! Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov Travel is on your mind and I don’t

mean a trip to town. You are beginning to think far and wide and perhaps not just for a holiday! You can think big because fortune favours the brave. There may be issues surrounding children, ones already here or prospective! These issues won’t go away so you need to talk things through. Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec Your family is in need of some TLC this week. They may be feeling ever so slightly left out. Spend a little time with and reassure them of your continued love and support. As you will need theirs over the coming weeks if you are to put into operation what was once a dream and is now a feasible plan. Capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan You are sometimes fearful of putting into words what you want to achieve for fear of being seen as fanciful. Don’t be so diffident these projects should be successful particularly if they involve others, as anything community based

is well favoured. There is nothing wrong with you making a profit from a project that benefits others! Speak up! Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb This week could find you being propositioned by people you feel uncomfortable about. Though not illegal the ventures they are proposing are by your standards unethical. These projects you know will swell your bank balance but can you really live with the compromise your conscience will have to make? Only you know the answer to this! Pisces 20 Feb – 20 March Children and young people should be your focus. Whether it is helping out with a youth group or simply doing a bit of babysitting for a friend your services will be in demand. Being philanthropic will not only earn you Brownie points amongst your friends, colleagues but should also throw you in the path of a new and important connection!

Alarming ‘flash for crash’ tactic on the rise MOTORISTS are being warned about a dangerous new tactic being employed by criminals running ‘crash for cash’ fraud rings. Flashing headlights to entice innocent drivers into the path of a deliberate collision at junctions or whilst exiting fuel stations has emerged as a worrying trend since the turn of the year. As Police, insurers and authorities clamp down on the traditional modus operandi of roundabout rear-end accidents, automotive anti-fraud investigation specialist, APU, has identified the new, more complex, method. Dubbed ‘flash for crash’ by APU’s unique team of formerPolice officers and forensic data investigators, the new tactic makes it harder for an innocent party to prove fault in the event of a legal dispute. Some 380 false insurance claims are made daily, costing the motor industry £1.7m a year and pushing up insurance premiums. “It is yet another example of how criminal gangs are becoming more sophisticated and

attempting to stay one step ahead of suspicion,” says Neil Thomas, APU’s Director of Investigative Services and former Detective Inspector of West Midlands Police. “The adoption of flashing headlights and beckoning the driver results in a ‘your word against mine’ situation when it comes to apportioning blame. By appearing to offer the right of way, the criminal simply continues his journey into a collision, holding the victim at fault for turning across him which, of course, cannot be denied under law.” In the more traditional rear-end shunt, criminals deliberately cause accidents by braking sharply in front of victims for no reason. They often also remove brake lights in order to reduce the victim’s reaction time. The latest tactic sees cars lying in wait for victims to exit from shops, car parks or fuel stations. The fraudster flashes their headlights, offering the victim a right of way to join a main road,

but then speeds up to ensure their car is hit side-on. The Insurance Fraud Bureau is currently investigating 49 rings, responsible for around £66m in false claims. In the five years since its inception, APU has been instrumental in the successful conclusion of some of the biggest motor fraud cases ever prosecuted in the UK, including the sentencing

of fraudster Masi Naqshbandi, who was jailed for seven years and three months for staging 260 fake accidents over a 15-month period, netting around £6.5 million in false insurance claims. Thomas said that, while motorists should be vigilant for any suspicious activity on the road, they should, at all times, maintain their concentration on the basic

rules of safe driving. APU is uniquely staffed by former Police officers and forensic data analysts who marry innovative technology and realworld police processes to identify fraudulent activity, protect insurer liability and help reduce insurance premiums. APU is part of the Automotive & Insurance Solutions Group plc.

driving has been launched. The innovative design commissioned by Sheilas’ Wheels follows a simulator study by the company which found that driving in flip flops slows braking time by 0.13 seconds – the equivalent of travelling three and a half metres further at 60mph compared to driving in more sensible shoes. According to the study’s research, flip flops not only

impair motorists’ movement between the brake and accelerator pedals by up to 0.1 seconds, but also reduce the driver’s braking force by three per cent compared to safer shoes - the equivalent to travelling four metres further at 60mph. The new safety accessory from Sheilas’ Wheels tucks easily into a glovebox and securely customises any flip flop providing extra foot support around the heel while offering added stability on the pedals. The ‘flipcessory’ can also be scrunched up to fit inside a handbag or pocket. The design and simulator findings follow a poll of British motorists which found that over half (59 per cent) drive in unsuitable footwear while one in five (20 per cent) continue to wear shoes that they have had a near miss or accident in. A worrying one in four motorists

(24 per cent) have got their shoe stuck under a pedal whilst driving – a wardrobe malfunction that can have disastrous consequences. Over a third of drivers (38 per cent) admit driving in flip flops is a nightmare while 27 per cent have had a mishap behind the wheel whilst wearing them. One in ten (11 per cent) admit their flip flops have become stuck under a pedal and seven per cent blame them for a past near miss or accident on the roads. Top five summer footwear Brits struggle to drive in: 1. Flip flops (51 per cent) 2. Bare feet (49 per cent) 3. Wedge heels (38 per cent) 4. Espadrilles (25 per cent) 5. Sandals (18 per cent) One in five drivers (20 per cent) said they had never even considered that their footwear might affect their safety behind the wheel. Just 14 per cent have chosen not to drive due to concerns about their footwear with 36 per cent of safetyconscious women carrying a pair of driving shoes in the car – compared to just 12 per cent of

men. Over half of motorists (53 per cent) called for further guidelines and advice on the impacts of driving in different footwear to be made available as a quarter (26 per cent) admit to choosing style over safety, picking out their footwear based on whether it goes with their outfit. A further one in ten women (10 per cent) reveals that they have even worn shoes behind the wheel that they have struggled to walk in. Jacky Brown, at Sheilas’ Wheels car insurance, said: “It’s worrying that so many drivers out there do not realise the impact their footwear choices can have on their safety at the wheel. Millions may think they can drive safely but may not realise the shortcomings of the flip-flop until it’s too late - putting themselves, their passengers and other drivers at risk every time they get in the car. "Our Sheilas’ shoe design could provide drivers with the ultimate fashion accessory for the car and handbag this summer – allowing women to be both stylish and safe whilst driving.”

Flip without the flop

FLIP FLOPS are more dangerous to drive in than heels according to new research. A third of motorists (33 per cent) wear this flimsiest of footwear behind the wheel and confessions by drivers now indicate they could be responsible for up to 1.4 million near misses or road accidents each year. Now, a new design concept tackling the dangers of flip flop

North Stand Cult Hero

#3: Michel Kuipers


The former Dutch marine enjoyed a particularly good relationship with fans during his decade long spell as the club’s custodian. A fierce competitor and determined professional, he overcame a number of serious injuries during his spell in Sussex. An excellent shot stopper, Kuipers saw off competition from a host of rival keepers to prolong his stint between the Seagulls sticks.

Young prospects given a chance by Garcia INJURIES to key players have severely restricted Oscar Garcia’s selections so far this season – meaning more minutes for the club’s young English prospects. Reigning player of the year Liam Bridcutt, record signing Craig Mackail-Smith and creator-in-chief Andrea Orlandi are among those tied to the treatment table ahead of tomorrow’s visit from Burnley (Saturday). Will Hoskins remains a longterm absentee while Bruno and recently-arrive Adam Chicksen have both missed out on minutes because of niggles and Ashley Barnes sat out training earlier this week due to a hip injury. However, the upshot of the lengthy injury list has been more playing time for the Albion’s youngsters. Last season Gus Poyet was criticised by some for not making more use of the Seagulls’ development squad. In fact, he fielded just three English players aged 21 or under across the entire campaign. Lewis Dunk made eight league appearances for a total of 498 minutes; George Barker three for 24 minutes and Jake ForsterCaskey three matches for just ten minutes playing time.

Ward hopes Albion can help him return to international football WHEN Wayne Bridge opted to sign for Reading over Brighton it was clear the Albion desperately needed a replacement left back. Now the man charged with filling the former Manchester City loanee hopes the Seagulls can help him in his bid to break back into the international fold. Stephen Ward joined the Albion on a season long loan deal from League One Wolves after being told by Kenny Jackett he would likely be one of a string of stars overlooked in favour of developing young talent at the West Midlands club. With Wolves looking to cut costs as they adjust to life in

Hopefully it is the start of a good run and we can kick on from here

Lewis Dunk hopes to be given more minutes under Garcia

If you count all 48 of the Albion’s league matches (includes the two play-off games) the club had a total league playing time of 47,520 minutes, calculated by multiplying the number of games by 90 (minutes per game) and then that total by 11 (positions on the pitch). Dunk, Barker and ForsterCaskey totalled just 532 minutes across the season – although this does not include injury time. And that works out at just 1.1 per cent of the Albion’s total playing time. This season though Oscar has

already given Foster-Caskey half an hour at St Andrews during the 1v0 win and allowed livewire Solly March a fleeting four minutes against Derby. Rohan Ince, who along with March impressed in pre-season, managed 80 minutes of the home match with Derby County, meaning under 21s have clocked up 121 total minutes this season in just three games. That works out at four per cent of the total possible playing time and the hope is the trio take their chance and establish themselves in Oscar’s first team thinking.

Paralympic star inspires Sussex teenagers at the Amex NEARLY a year on from his success at the London Paralympic Games, judo player Ben Quilter has been inspiring a new generation of young people at the Amex Stadium. The 31-year-old from Brighton, who won a bronze medal at last year’s games and also competed in Beijing in 2008, was at the stadium delivering a motivational workshop to around 100 local

16/17-year-old students as part of Albion in the Community’s National Citizen Service (NCS) programme. Quilter, who became Britain’s first ever visually impaired world judo champion in 2010, talked to the students for over an hour about being diagnosed with Stargardts disease, a rare degenerative and genetic sight condition, and his experience of being a top level paralympian.

He said: “It was fantastic to come to the Albion and be involved in such a great project. They all seemed to have got a lot out of the NCS project and really enjoyed it.” Albion in the Community will be running an autumn NCS programme during October half-term.

the third flight, the Seagulls made their move and Ward made a sure-footed debut in last weekend’s welcome win at Birmingham City. Despite the earlier arrival of Adam Chicksen from MK Dons, Ward will almost certainly be Oscar Garcia’s first choice left back and the player hopes a run in the team could bring him back to the attention of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni. He has not played for his country for nine months but the 18-cap defender revealed he has spoken to the Italian boss and vowed to win back his place after a nightmare two years during which he suffered back to back relegations with Wolves. Speaking after last Saturday’s away win, Ward said: “I felt I needed a fresh start and I am thankful Brighton gave me that. I hope I can repay their faith. “It is always nice to start with a win and I thought the lads were excellent today. “From watching them last season and playing against them it is a team I have admired. “It is something every football wants – to play in a team that likes to pass the ball and keep it and I thought we did that terrifically at times today. “Hopefully it is the start of a good run and we can kick on from here. “There are the players to get promoted here and there is no reason why we can’t be up there challenging. “Hopefully I can help the team go one better than last year.”

Burnley The Amex August 24, 2013 Kick off: 3pm

Big Match Preview:

In-form strike pair not to be taken lightly THE ALBION rear-guard will have to be on their toes to shackle one of the league’s in-form strike pairs. Danny Ings and Sam Vokes have both found the net twice in Burnley’s opening three games, helping the Lancashire outfit to two wins and a draw. The Clarets were widely tipped to struggle this season after the departure of chief goal-grabber Charlie Austin but Sean Dyche’s charges sit fourth in the league and head south full of confidence. Much of that belief is down to the early season form of Ings and Vokes, the latter of whom spent a stuttering loan spell at The Amex during the 2011-12 season. The Welsh international managed just three goals in 15 matches and his form last season at Turf Moor was hardly prolific – scoring just four times in 49 outings. This term though he already registered two goals and an assist and is developing a good partnership with Ings. Only QPR and Wigan have registered a higher number of average shots per game than Burnley and the team’s physical, slightly direct approach is reflected in their division topping 62.7 per cent success rate in aerial battles. Full back Kieran Trippier

Can Matthew Upson build on his impressive performance last weekend?

Oscar Garcia “I am very proud to be the coach of these players and I want to dedicate the win to the fans, especially those who came all the way from Brighton [to Birmingham] - they support us all the time, every game, so the win is for them all. “We deserved to win; we played a fantastic first half and created a lot of chances to score. I am happy because the players work hard and deserved to win other games but it was not possible. But today it was the first one.

remains an influential figure but the Albion’s chances have been boosted by the news Burnley midfield maestro Ross Wallace will be missing after going under the knife earlier this week. The Seagulls will look to Gordon Greer and Matthew Upson to build on their impressive performance during last weekend’s away win at Birmingham City where the pair kept their seventh clean sheet in the 14 matches they have appeared together. Greer was in particular dominant form at St Andrews and will relish the physical battle with former teammate Vokes. Liam Bridcutt and Andrea Orlandi are still missing for the Seagulls and Ashley Barnes is a

doubt after sitting out training with a hip concern. Oscar is therefore likely to continue to use Will Buckley in a more central role alongside Leo Ulloa, the club’s only fully fit recognised striker. Keith Andrews will continue to fill the void left by Bridcutt, with the Irish international one of the stand-out performers last weekend. Match winner Andrew Crofts has been urged to build on his strong showing by head coach Oscar and Kemy Agustien will almost certainly complete the midfield triumvirate. Youngster Rohan Ince, Jake Forster-Caskey and Solly March should make the bench again after making encouraging starts to the season.

“At times it seemed like the same film of the other games but in the first half we played our best football of the season.

“It was a fantastic action by three or four players to get the goal and Crofts’ finish was really good. “It is not easy to play at this stadium against Birmingham.

“Stephen [Ward] understood perfectly how we want to play after one day, and Keith [Andrews] is also an experienced player and they both performed very well.”
