WELCOME TO MOSAIC

Colour proves to be an unconscious theme running through this month’s edition. It is crucial, for example, to the success of the ‘flies’ that are tied with meticulous care by fly fisherman and teacher, Neil Truelove. And, as we see, colour in vibrant hues and bold strokes is used with creative flair by our featured artist, Vicky Horkan, as she works in her unconventional studio. Kirklees Council turned unexpectedly to the lively shades of the Victorian palette when it restored a former wholesale vegetable market which now forms a retail hub in the town. The viability of two market towns, Holmfirth and Penistone, is considered as supermarkets pose separate threats to the sort of independent retailer that Mosaic supports. Elsewhere, we report on how the thriving folk scene in north Sheffield is finding fresh expression – and we discover why an unusually enterprising village rugby club has ambitions to place itself at the centre of its community.

Neil Truelove established his reputation as a restaurateur. But his spare-time passion is for fly-fishing, as Rachel Parry reports. Pictures: Wes Hobson

Intricate work: Restaurateur and fisherman Neil Truelove ties a fly in the Shelley shop, Fly Only.

Casting around for the right sort of fly

C

asting his neon orange line from a platform at Shelley ponds, fly fisherman Neil Truleove is as graceful and rhythmic as as gymnast. Demonstrating an overhead cast, he throws back his arm to load the rod which acts like a spring, catapulting the line forth. Travelling through the air it unfurls with perfect elegance before landing the ‘fly’ nimbly in its intended spot on the water’s surface. “It’s all about delivering the line delicately,” says Neil, 57. “Fish are smarter than you think, the last thing you want to do is spook them.” His interest in fly fishing was sparked at the age of ten by his housemaster at Gordonstoun, where he learnt the skilful art. Today Neil runs The Three Acres Hotel and Restaurant in Shelley, but in his spare time the passion remains. As

a member of the Association of Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructors (AAPGAI) he imparts his knowledge so that others can enjoy the peaceful pastime as much as he does. He says: “A little time spent on lessons can make all the difference. Relaxing by a river is an enjoyable pastime, but it’s much better with two salmon on the bank. “I teach males and females of all ages and abilities, but I particularly enjoy teaching children. It’s great to get them outdoors so they have a better understanding of the countryside and how important it is to look after it. Seeing the look on their faces when they catch a fish is just great.” Neil’s love for angling has taken him all over the world, including fishing for bonefish in the Caribbean, sea

trout in Argentina and salmon and sea trout in Norway and Iceland, but he still insists there’s no place like home. “The Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District are such beautiful parts of the

world and certainly my favourite places to fish. I run courses in the Dales, the Lakes and Scotland but most lessons I teach are at the ponds here in Shelley.” For beginners, lessons start with the basics: stance and grip. From there Neil teaches the skills and techniques for fly fishing, casting and fly dressing. A little knowledge of entomology helps the novice to understand which insect will attract which fish at what time, below, above or on the surface. Each artificial fly is made to imitate an insect using materials including vibrant fur, feathers, hair and tinsel bound to a hook. Neil sources his equipment from Shelley’s ‘Fly Only’, a shop run by husband and wife team Stuart and Vicky Hooley. It is an Aladdin’s cave to anyone with an interest in the sport, stocked with rods, reels, nets, clothing and fly-tying equipment, including

8 MOSAIC OUTDOORS

intricate flies made by the couple’s 12-year-old son Dylan. He is thought to be one of the best fly-tiers in the country for his age. But fishermen aren’t their only customers. Stuart says: “There is a new trend for feather hair extensions which was started by American Idol judge Steven Tyler. Long feathers used in fly fishing supposedly make the best extensions so we are currently taking numerous orders from the fashion industry.” Back on the water, once the different casting methods are mastered it’s time to reel in the prize.

“You know when something has bitten because you will feel a good tug,” says Neil. “It’s now a tug-o’-war between you and the fish. Reel it in a little then release when it pulls, continue this until the fish gets tired then you can reel it the rest of the way. “Some areas are catch and release but others allow you to keep the fish. If it's your first catch it's always nice to keep it but it’s important to fish responsibly to maintain our waters. The rule is simple – don’t be greedy.” www.aapgai-fly-fishing.co.uk

A villa in the valley

I

n an elevated position of the Holme valley stands Ash Villa, an imposing Victorian house. Today passers-by are forgiven for taking their eyes off the stunning views to admire its attractive stonework. But it has not always warranted such attention. Four years ago, it would scarcely have attracted a glance let alone a stare, though the owner Claire Longden couldn’t take her eyes off it. She says: “I used to work as a hairdresser and it was one of my clients that led me to Ash Villa. Her relative lived in it at the time. It wasn’t in a good way but I could see potential and asked her to let me

know if it ever came on the market. We had just finished doing up a house in Honley when she said we could have first dibs on it. “Inside it looked like a haunted house, dark, dingy with a leaky roof and spider webs, but we knew how great it could be.” Having completed three property

projects, Claire and her husband Andrew felt well equipped to transform Ash Villa into the stunning property it is today. As a selfemployed builder, Andrew dealt with structural demands which included adding a three-storey and a single storey extension, opening up part of the ground floor, lowering ceilings,

tanking the cellar and re-roofing. Inside Claire has created impressive designs. It’s a talent that has not gone unnoticed. “I had done-up properties in my own time but my passion for interiors developed into a full time career 12 months ago when I was offered a job as an interior designer with Mirfield based CR Interiors. “I don’t have a signature style as such, my tastes are forever changing, but I do enjoy the challenge of mixing old with new and making it work.” To achieve her design brief, Claire has retained many original features including deep coving, decorative

floor tiles, a spindled staircase, sash windows and an impressive stained glass window. These period pieces have been carefully combined with modern fixtures and fittings resulting in a traditional property with a cool, contemporary twist. Most rooms are painted in calming shades of white and cream with splashes of character added in colourful accessories, bold wallpaper and quirky furniture. Claire’s favourite spaces include her sleek, open-plan SieMatic kitchen and her daughter Millie’s pretty second floor ensuite bedroom, complete with pink tub. “Designer Guild, Osborne and Little,

Heals and The White Company are among my favourite suppliers but I find things everywhere. All the radiators have come from salvage yards, as has Millie’s bath, I’ve even been known to fish furniture out of skips. “We are really proud of what we have achieved in Ash Villa, I didn’t expect to be moving on so soon but we have found a 1960s bungalow nearby which we will be making really modern with lots of glass. We can’t wait.” Ash Villa is on the market with Simon Blyth. Offers around £825,000.

he first thing you notice about Grangefield is the vast expanse of land galloping forth from the property. More than 20 acres, providing a magnificent view from the living room and bedrooms, stretch out across a landscape dominated by verdant hills, thick woods and neighbouring Highland cattle. The view was enough to convince its owner Lynn Catley, which was just as well, as there was very little else to see. She says: “It was like Passchendaele, with mounds of earth everywhere, like a building site and none of the floors or ceilings were in. It was just a shell. “The man who was developing the house, a builder, was doing it for

18 MOSAIC HOMES AND INTERIORS

himself, but halfway through decided to move elsewhere. “But as soon as we drove up here and looked out at the view we knew we had to have it.” Lynn had lived in Hong Kong, where her husband worked as a lawyer, for 25 years before the buying the old farmhouse in Thunderbridge, near Kirkburton, in 1994. The couple project-managed the entire development. A deep red Aga was all the original developer had ordered for the property though it still sits proudly in the kitchen which, like the rest of the house, offers fine outdoor views from the breakfast table. The living room, likewise, has windows on three walls which look

out, in one direction, to an adjacent field populated with Highland cattle and, in the other, over the extensive grounds with the spire of Thurstonland Church clearly visible on the horizon. “My daughter got married there and it was lovely when we had the reception here and everyone was able to see where we’d all just been,” Lynn says. A comfortable, warmly decorated dining room is complemented by a fireplace

fashioned from a stone window from Guiseley and stone slabs from the property’s cellar. The cellar itself is dry, clean and painted and ideal for its present use: storing wine. Above it, the boot room, ideal for laundry and keeping miscellaneous items, provides access to the three garages. The house has five bedrooms, including an en-suite and a study, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom is notable for its large beams which give it an

ambience not unlike that of a captain’s quarters aboard a galleon. It is well-lit, has a large en suite bathroom, and has one of the best views across the grounds. Grangefield also has three stables close by, should they be needed. Lynn says: “We were going to get some horses but then my daughters discovered boys and they went out of the window then.” She says she feels such a large space ought to be filled by a family again. “It’s lovely living here but my family has moved away and, given its size, I think it’s time it had another family in it again.” Grangefield is on the market with Simon Blyth, offers around £1,250,000.

Nettles, herbs, wild grasses and ferns feature in the latest designs by Clarissa Hulse, writes Ruby Daley

Busy interiors: Wallpapers and fabrics from Clarissa Hulse’s kallianthi collection for Harlequin.

Drama in the home

W

hile some homeowners remain fans of minimalism, others like their interiors busy. Vivid wallcoverings and lively fabrics are key to achieving such a look. Rather than thinking less is more, adopt a ‘more the merrier’ approach, bringing together a range of fabric designs, textures and colours. Whether they are picked to complement or clash, drama is instant and can be further intensified with the

addition of bold wallpaper prints. Clarissa Hulse’s fabric and wallcovering designs provide apt examples. The British designer has teamed up with interiors company Harlequin to produce her ‘Kallianthi’ collection, inspired by all things botanical. Fabrics are mainly printed or woven onto natural cloths and often feature metallic flashes. Motifs include nettles, cow parsley, grasses, ferns, olive branches, wild flowers and

herbs. Charming wallpapers continue the theme, and are powerful individually or used in conjunction with the fabrics. Designs range from a Rothko-esque ombré stripe to delicate grasses and tiny dappled leaves, some of which are enhanced by metallic inks. The collection emits a vibrant fusion of bright hues including magenta, paprika, coral, aqua and lime. www.harlequin.uk.com

If you looking for a sofa to brighten a dull room, these designs should fit the bill, writes Dylan Raine

Stand-out sofas: Powder, above, Bora Bora, left, and Edward below. All from Chaplins.

Sharp edged comfort

B

right, quirky sofas provide a quick and easy way to inject colour and character into anodyne interiors. Ideal for those who rent, edgy sofas allow individuals to reflect their own styles without having to ask the landlord’s permission. They also fit in with the mixed-up trend in living and dining room furniture – and there is no need to buy a three-piece suite. Instead pick a playful sofa that will stand out amid the chaos of odd seating. In these designs from interior specialist Chaplins, the canary yellow Edward sofa by Bensen Italy, comprises a buttoned seat cushion, scaled arm and back rests and down-filled cushions. Its inviting and informal appearance attracts attention without trying too hard.

For those who prefer their sofas with curves there is the powder collection by Kati Meyer-Brühl available in punchy plum. Its rounded features not only score high in the style stakes but its snug shape also envelopes occupiers in ultimate comfort. Meanwhile for large living spaces there is the Bora Bora corner sofa in zesty orange. According to its designers Andrei Munteanu and Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, the seating system is inspired by a ringshaped coral reef known as an ‘atoll’. Bora Bora is specifically based on a domestic atoll which isolates an inner space creating an independent area with its own focus, hence the sofa’s peculiar shape. www.chaplins.co.uk

hen planning a new kitchen the question is often: timeless or ontrend? While streamlined styles make a strong interior statement where it matters, the fear is that a new, more contemporary design will soon enter the market. On the flip side, detailed, traditional kitchens are favoured for their ability to stand the test of time, but many struggle to achieve the desired wow-factor at the hub of the home. In a bid to please both traditional and contemporary markets, Italian kitchen specialists Caple have launched two designs that vary in appearance but not quality. The Zuri kitchen is designed for the fashion forward homeowner, offering a sleek, contemporary aesthetic that will sit well in any

modern home. Strong clean lines fuse with grey oak fronts to create a striking and confident finish. Following the trend for natural inspired interiors, a distinctive horizontal grain adds depth and texture to the simple but effective design. Meanwhile for those in search of a more refined option there is the Arlington. The graceful design is

part of Caple’s Elegance collection, designed to be ‘forever fashionable’. Classically beautiful the Arlington kitchen is characterised by sharp lines, traditional cornices and light pelmets. A deeply grooved mock-in frame provides a smart motif and the sensuous cream shade of the cabinets ensures a versatile and lasting addition to the home. www.caple.co.uk

A new folk music festival took over two Pennine villages for a weekend. Adam Civico finds why its organiser wanted to keep the community on song

raditional singing is in the fabric of the north Sheffield villages of Bradfield and Dungworth.The Royal Hotel in Dungworth is one of several pubs which keeps alive a festive tradition by hosting scores of singers for the village carols. Then there are the traditional hunt songs which remain embedded in the culture of the farming community. But for the first time this year the two villages hosted the Soundpost folk festival which took over village halls, pubs and church school rooms last month. Its organiser and performer Fay Hield hopes the simple act of singing can boost community spirit. There were headline acts, and about

100 ticket-buying music lovers were attracted because of the festival. But alongside the big draw events were pub singing sessions and singing workshops for villagers. Fay, who lives in Storrs, near Dungworth, was keen to ensure Soundpost was well received by locals. “If we are going to run things like this it’s got to work for the village. I’m not about to set myself up for a lot of criticism from my neighbours.” So besides the practicality of booking acts and venues, Fay was keen to keep others happy as they went about their day-to-day business. Speaking before Soundpost, which was held on October 21-23, she said:

It’s a balance of helping those in the tourist industry but not having a massive impact on the village; and putting things on that locals can come to as well.” As far as Soundpost was concerned, that included a lunchtime pub session at the The Plough in Low Bradfield focusing on traditional songs about work and industry, a singing workshop, ’like a community choir’, for Dungworth residents in the village hall and a public concert at the new Dungworth Green Hall. “A good half a dozen people signed up for the workshops before we even

started pushing it. If they are keen it could turn in to something regular.” There would likely be support for that from the wider Sheffield community, which Fay says has one of the strongest folk scenes in the country. “There is the carol tradition and the hunt type songs that are a way of life for farmers. There is some traditional, grounded, singing here. There is also the folk revivial boom that hit Sheffield and got lots of people involved. Sheffield is pretty grass roots and people do make music for themselves. There is a lot of music.” Planning for Soundpost started early this year, when Fay, partner Jon

Boden, Sam Sweeney, both of whom play in award-winning folk group Bellowhead, and sound engineer Andrew Bell came up with the concept. Fay says: “People were really keen on the idea of coming so we thought we might as well put a bit more into it and throw ourselves in at the deep end. “We’re all part of the music scene and travel around the country and see things. We have tried to bring the best bits back here. It’s great for the village hall to get a three-day booking and I think it really could help the village – as long as it doesn’t upset residents.”

he session begins with some shuttle runs. The players sprint in pairs over the hay and mud on the floor, hoping to avoid the horse muck. They run to the first light, then the second, then the fourth because the third is missing. The graffiti daubed across the walls must be a blur to them as their footsteps reverberate loudly around the Thurgoland Tunnel. After the initial running, the ball comes out. The squad practises line-outs, the element of rugby most suited to the narrow but high building. This is followed by circuit training on the Romtickle Viaduct. Occasionally a bemused cyclist or jogger will pass by, unaware that these guys are attempting to create a

centre for the community in a village desperately short of activities. Wortley Rugby Union Club have been playing for six seasons. Members compete every two weeks in the South Yorkshire Merit League and there’s a squad of about 25 players. Because the Finkle Street club house had no electricity, and the pitch was dark on winter weeknights, they took the unusual step of training inside the disused railway tunnel. After the train routes were restructured in 1983, the track was taken out and the tunnel became a walking route on the TransPennine Trail. It is lit in the evenings and, for the last two years, has housed Wortley’s players once a week. Club captain Bob Ballard says:

“Instead of paying for a gym, we decided to train in the tunnel because it is free and we can do most of what we want in there. Our fitness improved a lot after we started training in there.” These unconventional training sessions will not be held so regularly this season. While Wortley will still use the tunnel when their pitch is frozen or too muddy, they hope to train at the club more as new lights were installed on one of the best days in the history of the little club. In June, Jason Leonard, World Cup winner and most capped England player of all time, visited the club with England star Tom Palmer to help with £5,000 of repairs. It came about because Wortley beat

1,200 other clubs to win the Rugby Football Union’s RugbyForce competition to renovate a club. Wortley’s application won because of their innovative training techniques as well as the squalid conditions at Finkle Street. Club secretary and player Richard Goldthorpe says: “The extremely basic toilets have been renovated and the floor has been relaid. “The building used to be vulnerable to vandalism but we have good locks now. Gone are the days of coming in on a Saturday and finding a homeless person had spent the night in the clubhouse. “We had a great time when Tom and Jason came down. The best thing about getting the money has been

that the number of juniors has increased exponentially. We now regularly have 30 or 40 kids aged between four and 14 training on Sundays. It is a safer and nicer place for kids to come than it used to be.” Winning the competition was the first step on the journey to the club's ultimate goal of being a social hub. “Ideally we would love to build a club house with a large hall that we could rent out and a car park with 70 spaces,” says Richard. “I remember when I was a kid growing up in Wortley we had a big party at Wortley School for the silver jubilee but that kind of thing doesn't happen so much now. Since the school closed about 25 years ago there has been no where for local

people to organise events and we would love to provide that. “The clubhouse could cost about £200,000. We are applying for funding but so are a lot of organisations and clubs. It is going to be difficult but all we can do is the best we can for the community.” The club works closely with the Wortley Forum and helps to organise events such as the annual children's party as well as litter picks. The Finkle Street site also contains toilets and a tennis court that are open to the public. So don’t be alarmed if you are walking along the Transpennine trail and hear a group of men shouting within a tunnel, they are the community rugby team.

o you’ve done it. You’ve sweated over the designs, you’ve built your time machine and you decide to take yourself back to ancient Rome. You want to see some of the big marble sculptures as they were when new. Stepping out of your epoch-hopping contraption, find yourself staring up at the enormous marble statue of Augustus. But hang on, why have they painted it such gaudy colours? Our perception of the past is very often coloured by the present and it turns out this goes just as much for 100 years ago as it does for 2,000. Just as many are surprised to find the Romans ‘coloured in’ their marble sculptures, so many were put off when Huddersfield open market’s undeniably striking colour scheme was unveiled in 1998. On February 14 of that year, the Huddersfield Examiner recorded the reactions of bemused traders, many of whom were expecting a black-and-gold or

38 MOSAIC HERITAGE

maroon-and-gold colour scheme from the £1.8m refurbishment of the then 110-year-old building. “Many traders feel the vibrant multicoloured paint work is a waste of money that will do little to encourage shoppers to visit the town centre market,” it said. “Some stall traders compared the colours to a ‘circus tent’, while others said it looked like a ‘fairground’ and was out of keeping with the market’s Victorian origins.” The irony, of course, as Kirklees markets officer John Lambe explains, is those origins were exactly what the council was aiming for. “We were very careful about making sure the colours were as much in keeping with the originals as we could get them,” he said. “But there was a lot of controversy about the light blue, in particular, which people thought was a bit garish and not in keeping with the building's character. But it seems to have grown on people now.”

What was new however, was the triumphal arch which now marks one’s entry into this ancient trading district. New, too, was its role. Formerly a wholesale fruit and vegetable market, it is now a general market on Monday, Thursday and Saturday while secondhand traders operate on Tuesday and Saturday. And its design, as much as bold paint, almost makes it feel as though you’re walking into the Chinatown which Huddersfield has somehow kept secret from you. It certainly makes the place stand out, as you walk out of the town’s train station, and John said that was, again, precisely what the council had in mind. He said: “Monday was traditionally the big market day in Huddersfield but that’s diminished now, largely because of Sunday trading. And although Saturdays are full to capacity, the aspiration we have for this corner of town is for it to become a thriving area for local businesses. In Huddersfield the focus is very much on the other end of town so we’d like this area

to be more visible and vibrant.” Amazingly, in the 1970s, there was talk of demolishing this impressive structure with its cast iron and glass canopy as there was ‘no great enthusiasm’ for its preservation. It was seen as out of date for the newfangled trading methods of the day. Thankfully it has not followed the fate of the imposing stone Victorian market hall across town which was demolished, to widespread regret, by the council in 1966. Its rich history as well as its rich colour scheme seems set to stay with the town for some time to come. ‘Compounded this, of books and sweets, of oilcloth and of cheese. With whiffs of calico and of sheets, combined with Pie and Peas.’ (Extract from a poem on the market printed March 25, 1939).

ew things are more satisfying than the humble pie. Take the meat and potato pie. It’s a staple of many a Yorkshire diet and none the worse for being simple: Meat, potato, stock and short-crust pastry. And depending where you’re from a glug of Henderson's Relish. Imagine my dismay when I found a recipe which lists onion, carrot and celery before any mention of meat, or potato. Even then the meat is minced. Tut tut. I have nothing against mince pie, apart from when it masquerades as a meat and potato pie. Forget what food snobs might say, the fact that such emotion can be stirred by a pie, illustrates their culinary standing. If you agree try these which are perfect for autumn. Each recipe requires a 375g packet of ready-rolled puff pastry.

Pheasant, chestnut and bacon pie You will need a 1.1-litre (two pint) pie dish. For the filling:

42 MOSAIC FOOD AND DRINK

150g unsmoked lardons or rindless streaky bacon cubed. 1tbsp sunflower oil 1 medium onion, chopped 1 celery stick, stringed and sliced 4 skinless pheasant breasts each cut into four 1 bay leaf 200g pack of cooked chestnuts 2 garlic cloves, crushed 100ml red or white wine 3tbsp plain flour 200ml chicken stock 2tbsp double cream 2tbsp chopped parsley Sea salt and black pepper plain flour for rolling beaten egg to glaze Over a medium heat fry the lardons until golden. Add oil, onion and celery and fry for about five minutes, until

softened and lightly brown. Stir regularly. Turn up the heat and add the pheasant and bay leaf and fry for 90seconds turning the pheasant. Do not leave it any longer or when you cook it later the meat may become dry. Season with salt and pepper. Add the chestnuts, garlic and wine to the pan and allow them to bubble furiously for a few seconds. Sprinkle flour into the pan and stir well. Take off the heat and gradually stir in the stock, scraping the bottom of the pan. Add the cream and parsley (optional) and then scoop the mixture into your pie dish. Cool for half an hour. Preheat the oven to 220C/Gas 7/fan 200C. Unroll the puff pastry on a floured surface then cut some strips about 1cm wider than the rim of the

dish. Brush the dish’s rim with the egg and fix the strips in place then brush them with egg again. Lift the remaining pastry over the filling and press firmly to seal the edges. Trim with a sharp knife and brush with egg to glaze. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Caramelised red onion and goat’s cheese tarts For the topping: 50g butter 4 medium red onions halved and thinly sliced 50g light brown sugar 3tbsp red wine vinegar 3x100g rounds of goat's cheese 2-3tsp extra virgin olive oil freshly ground black pepper fresh oregano or parsley leaves 1-2tbsp plain flour for rolling 1tbsp milk, to glaze. Melt the butter and gently fry the onions for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase the heat and fry for another 3-4 minutes stirring until they start to brown.

Stir in the sugar and vinegar and simmer for five minutes until virtually all the liquid has gone. Leave to cool and preheat the oven to 220C/fan200C/Gas7. Unwrap the pastry and roll it out about another 4cm. Trim the edges and cut into six even rectangles. Place on a baking tray, prick with a fork and brush lightly with milk. Bake for ten minutes. Divide the onion mixture between the pastry rectangles. Cut the cheeses in half vertically and then slice each half in two horizontally. Place two pieces on each rectangle and season. Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cheese starts to melt. Transfer to plates and drizzle with olive oil and garnish with the herbs.

Nectarine and blueberry galettes 6 firm, ripe nectarines 3tbsp apricot jam, 1tbsp water 65g fresh blueberries. plain flour for rolling beaten egg, to glaze.

Place the pastry on a floured surface and roll out another 5cm. Line a baking tray with parchment. Upturn bowl or saucer about 15cm diameter and place in a corner of the pastry. Cut around it with a sharp knife then repeat five more times. Prick the circles with a fork and brush them lightly with the beaten egg. With a small knife cut the nectarine and cut into about 16 slices. Arrange them in a circle over one of the pastry circles. Repeat with the rest of the fruit. Warm the jam and a tablespoon of water stirring until softened and use it to glaze the fruit. Place the baking tray in the centre of the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle a few blueberries on each galette. Return to the oven for about three minutes until the blueberries start to burst. Serve hot or cold.

A tale of two towns

W

alking down Penistone high street on a Monday afternoon, something feels amiss. It’s eerily quiet. It’s not raining or blowing any more of a gale than usual. There is simply no-one about. The demise in shoppers has been blamed, in part, on the new Tesco supermarket which opened last year amid controversy. Worries it would detract business from small retailers, monopolise car parking and kill the high street, were not enough to stop the scheme. A year on, the prophecy seems to have been founded. Claire Drewery, a florist at The Rose Cottage says: “It is definitely quieter than it was and I think it is because of Tesco. There are not the people walking around the town centre as there used to be. People are just going to the Tesco and there’s nothing coming up the street. I thought it would make it better but it’s had the opposite effect.” A reduction in passing custom has been reported by many businesses

with the loss of traditional market trading held responsible. Lack of parking is also acting as a deterrent to visitors, according to locals. The town’s main car park, next to the supermarket, is open to everyone but has a two-hour time limit and is substantially smaller than its predecessor. Paul Schofield, 48, who has been a butcher on Market Street for 27 years says it makes it difficult to compete with the supermarket. “It is hard. We have no market and there’s nowhere for parking. The meat market was shut down, then the fur and feather market. We are doing our best but it’s hard for everyone. I have

a regular customer base and and I carry on buying local produce. I deal with local farmers to keep things as local as I can and I think the customers appreciate that. “But the supermarket can be open longer hours than me and then there’s the car parking situation.” A short ride away and battles are being fought in Holmfirth to stop two so called ‘out-of-town’ supermarkets – Tesco and Lidl – from being built on its scenic doorstep. Groups including Keep Holmfirth Special have formed with ambitions of stopping it becoming a clone town. Further concerns are that charity

shops have overrun the town. Andrew Bray of Andrew’s Greengrocers has been in Holmfirth for 37 years, in which time he has witnessed a great deal of change. “We have seen a great decline in village stores and good pubs, it’s losing the character of villages. “Here in Holme Valley we are quite lucky we have kept that character. Most people have a shop they can walk to which is really nice. I’m a strong advocate of village life. “Things have changed here, though. There were seven greengrocers in Holmfirth when I started, now there’s only me. We used to have two

abattoirs, six butchers and now we’re down to one butcher. “We have seen an onslaught of charity shops. Anyone wanting to set up a small business isn’t getting in there as charity shops are seen as a better bet to the landlord. As a small shopkeeper you want a level playing field.” Sallie Whitehead of Leifs florists is wary of how superstores would affect established traders. “I don't know if it will get more people coming this way or send more people in there but I don’t think Lidl is the right image for Holmfirth. The shopkeepers here support each other. They will come to

me for flowers as opposed to going into town and hopefully that will continue regardless."

Colour in the kitchen

S

ome occupations can take over your life. Painting, it seems, is one of them. Standing in the kitchen of artist Vicky Horkan’s home you are surrounded by her work. A mixing palette sits on a small table and half a dozen pieces, in various stages of completion, are dotted around the kitchen. She makes a coffee and smiles as she looks for the milk. “I have to move paintings to get into the fridge.” That’s because she has about six on the go at any one time to allow for drying time. And some paintings they are. Most are a metre square, oil on canvas creations, with incredible

bursts of colour. It’s easy to see why her work is described as bold, vibrant and expressive. And it’s getting noticed. Vicky has had her paintings exhibited at the Meller Merceux Gallery in Oxford, which also happens to sell and exhibit Picasso and Salvador Dali works. They’ve been on the walls of La Galleria in Pall Mall, London, and she’s been chased by a Sotheby’s dealer and one of the Guerlain family, known for its cosmetic brand. “I’m an emerging artist and I’m only just starting to get into these really good galleries. It's the most important

thing. You can have all the talent and work from home, or through the internet but I’m finding it’s a different class of people at these galleries. “They’re buying art not just because they like your work but as an investment. People keep telling me I’m at that tipping point. It’s collectors and not just people buying because they want something to match their settee.” Vicky, of Hunslet, Leeds, admits she likes to rattle on and our conversation is littered with those kind of humorous throw-away lines. Perhaps that’s her background coming out. Raised in Barnsley, her father worked

underground as a mining engineer and it was not uncommon for him to come home covered in coal. The collieries where he worked were renowned for their gallows humour and maybe it rubbed off on Vicky. Her mother was a housewife but there was also art in the family. “On both sides there was art. There was always art at my grandma’s house in Barnsley. Ornate oil paintings of candelabras and grapes with big brass frames. That’s what caught my eye even when I was younger.” In her early-20s Vicky went to university at Bretton Hall, set in the picturesque parkland near the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Her course was textile design, but she was always taken by more fluid forms and was inspired by the nature of the surroundings – and those dancers.

56 MOSAIC VISUAL ARTS

“I was studying textiles, but I wanted to be out. I asked to sit in the dance studios and paint the dancers because I was interested in the movement. “I have always been interested in nature and things that happen off the cuff, rather than something with structure like a building, or a manmade object. Movement is still a big thing for me, that I think must go back to my time at Bretton College.” After studying, a period as a freelance textile designer followed, as well as time in office jobs. But she was always drawn towards painting. These days she paints most days, in

that kitchen, as long as there’s natural light. The bulk of her work is themed around birds and butterflies because, ‘you don’t see many any more, do you?’. Not that she studies the natural form in any great detail. “I don’t look at anything while I'm painting. If you start to do that it kind of contradicts what I’m trying to do. I try to just go from what’s in my memory. I never think to myself, “I’m going to study a butterfly’. I’m basically doing an interpretation of what’s in my mind.” With that she goes back to the kitchen, picks up a brush and starts painting.

Its good looks and lively engine make the Mazda2 an excellent choice for the new driver, writes Mark D’Apice

Exclusive: The Mazda2 Black limited edition

A zoom with a view

I

have never made any attempt to hide my love of hot hatches and we are lucky to have the choice of some great cars. This is also the market most coveted by those who have just passed their driving test. These drivers get my greatest sympathy as they often find the cost to insure their first car outstrips its value, sometimes a few times over. So what is needed is a sporty looking small hatchback with a reasonably peppy engine and a good safety package for mum and dad’s peace of mind and a low insurance grouping for their wallet. Enter the Mazda2. It is built on the same floor pan as the Ford Fiesta, from which it derives its excellent handling. But Mazda has

60 MOSAIC MOTORING

made its own tweaks to the suspension which softens the ride over rough surfaces. Mazda’s ‘zoom-zoom’ philosophy really comes out in this model, especially around town as the 0-60 figures on paper don’t make this the quickest car in its class. It does however feel light and nimble which makes city driving more bearable. It is the test of a good car that it can bring a smile to the face of any driver without having to go to the anti-social side of the speed limit. Inside, the dash and seats have been designed to give that same sporty feel while still being practical and hard wearing. In size, the Mazda2 is slightly smaller than some of its rivals but thanks to good use of space, there’s

room for three adults in the back and generous boot space. The £10,305 price tag of the bottom-of-the-range 1.3-litre petrol TS which includes air conditioning, electric windows, four airbags and four wheel ABS is cheaper than some cars in the smaller city car category, which are nowhere near as versatile as the larger Mazda2. Its just a shame that Mazda has never developed an MPS variant of the Mazda2 as I can just imagine a two-litre powered stripped out version being just the car to rival the RenaultSport Clio. But seeing as it would overshadow its cousin, the forthcoming Fiesta ST, maybe the management in Detroit have had a word.

The cee’d, below has proved an enormous success for Kia. As Mark D’Apice reports, the range continues to expand

Cee’ds of success

C

hoice is the name of the game in the motoring world as buyers seek to personalise cars to match their fashion, tastes and personality. The ‘any colour you want so long as it is black’ approach has gone. The Kia cee’d is no exception and since it was launched four years ago it has spawned some interesting variations. The big seller and the most visible on the roads is the standard five-door model. This was the first car by Kia to be designed and built exclusively for the European market. With its purposeful front end – which has been updated – and its sleek profile, it has been a hit with customers who find some of its competitors bland by comparison. For those who favour a more sporty look, the pro_cee’d has become a credible budget alternative to rivals like the Megane Coupé. The three-door hatchback offers the same interior space as the five-door version but looks much more performance-oriented especially with the rear spoiler and optional viper stripes. No family car range would be complete without an

62 MOSAIC MOTORING

estate and it is the cee-d SW that fills that gap. Although it is based on the same chassis as the standard five-door car, it gains extra length through a much longer overhang from the rear axle backwards. As with the rest of the range there is lots of space inside the light and airy cabin making it an ideal car for a large family. There are also rumours of a fourth member of the family. A cabriolet concept car was shown a few years ago with the name ex_cee’d. This was put on the back burner because of the global downturn but could well see the light of day now the recovery is in full swing. The most likely candidate to go on sale next is the eco_cee’d, a hybrid powered version of the five door cee’d. It is known that the Kia-Hyundai partnership is working on a hybrid powerplant and once the technology is ready, it is most likely to be the best selling car in the Kia range. All the cee’ds on sale come with the standard Kia seven-year warranty which, even after it has been offered for four years, still hasn’t been matched by any competitor.

Adam Civico LAST WORD ‘Next came the tradesmen and their requests that the kitchen be emptied. To us ordinary folk that means emptying the cupboards. To tradesmen it means ripping them out’

T

he kitchen is the heart of the home’. You've heard interior design types on television trotting out what is one of their favourite clichés. You know the sort of cheap-to-make drivel. The programmes are tedious and the clichés are tosh. Or so I thought until my kitchen was ripped out. It all started off without much bother. The kitchen was being extended and I dug foundation trenches. It was tough menial work but somebody's got to do it. I mixed concrete and shovelled it into the trenches. Moved hundreds of blocks to build the walls and made sure stuff was delivered when it was needed. There was blood and sweat and brutal language – well one has to fit in with one’s builder doesn’t one? – but there were no tears. They would come later. The building work was the easy bit because the mess was blocked off from the rest of the house by a wall. What a wonderful wall it was. The difficulties began when it was knocked down to make the extension part of the same room. For a start there was a window – or a boarded-up hole where a window would later be fitted – allowing draughts to whistle through the whole house.

74 MOSAIC OPINION

Next came the tradesmen and their requests that the kitchen be emptied. To us ordinary folk that means emptying the cupboards. To tradesmen it means ripping the cupboards out. And the worktop that sits on them. And the hob. And the oven. As, bit by bit the kitchen was destroyed, the various trades graciously said we could keep the sink, although ‘it would be better if it came out’. It’s amazing how much stuff a tiny kitchen can store in its cupboards. As the ‘heart of my home’ spewed its contents virtually every room in the house was taken over. The kitchen became a bare shell and our living space was reduced to a corner of the settee as boxes filled every other available space. “Think of it like an adventure,” I kept saying. That wore thin after about half an hour. Adventures are meant to be fun and living like that is not. Making a cup of tea becomes a major task. And forget cooking. A new mantra emerged: “it’s not for long.” But even that shred of comfort was shattered by a colleague who I met in the aisles of B and Q. Through a forced smile I asked him: “DIY keeping you busy?” His reply added to my torment. “It never ends, kid. It never ends.”
