CELEBRATING WORTHING’S FINEST



ÂľRIRXUZRUN FRPHVLQE\UHIHUUDOÂś We went to see Premier by Design at 5 Becket Buildings, Littlehampton Road, Worthing to see why they were so keen to talk to us about themselves. We entered the workman like offices and were immediately taken aback by the constant round of phone calls and logistical planning taking place. Mark Woods (Managing Director) was clearly busy on two phones but did not look like a man under pressure, more a man getting done what needed to be done. A big broad smile came across his face when he realised who we were and held up a finger to denote ‘just a minute’ The minute passed and then another, both phone calls finished simultaneously followed by an outstretched hand. “Hi I’m Mark, it is always like this here you will have to excuse usâ€?. In times of recession we are all led to believe that the building industry is the first to be hit and the last to recover. So what is the secret at Premier by Design? Why are they so busy? Was it thousands spent on advertising? A bunch of ‘sharp’ salesman in the field separating little old ladies from their savings? Not at all! “Referrals and recommendationsâ€? exclaimed Simon Boxall (Sales Director) from the back of the room. “We have been doing it for 20 years and we are very proud of what we do, which is why we invited you along !â€? He went on to say that they have calculated that approximately 80% of their work comes in by referral. We explained that we would like to get some pictures of one of the jobs nearing completion and which one did they recommend we visit. “Pick anyone you likeâ€? said Mark “That’s the jobs on the wall thereâ€?. We picked one that was a loft conversion in addition to an extension and a new kitchen. We went straight round with the photographer and had a look. We thought with all that work going on it was undoubtedly going to be a mess! We got to Mrs Wardell’s who is a child minder. She told us that the child minding caused more chaos than the building work and she was delighted with it all. She was a recommendation herself and would refer anybody to Premier by Design. Well enough words, look at the pictures. This is just as we found everything. Of course there were tools and equipment lying around but clear that regular cleaning and clearing had been taking place. The loft room was light and cheery, the kitchen looking spacious and nearing completion. The extension was already very much part of the house and would be undetectable once the kitchen was finished...

...Well done guys!

THE UK’S PREMIER MARILYN MONROE IMPERSONATOR TALKS TO EVENT MAGAZINE Laura. There have been a few embarrassing incidents. There was a couple who used to come to my shows and the lady particularly liked what I did. They were about to get married so she hired me for her future husbands stag night. I went to the venue where the party was and performed a song or two. As I left the stage the Groom’s future Father in Law asked me when I was going to take my clothes off as all his friends had been talking about it and were very excited! They thought I was a ‘strippergram’! The couple were very embarrassed and apologised to me by e mail several times.

“...I would just like to sit down and have a drink and a girly chat with her.” Event. You obviously have a tremendous talent for being Marilyn……does anyone ever forget reality and believe you are actually her? Laura. Well people seem to become very comfortable with me very quickly; I think it is because they know so much about Marilyn they think they know me. It is a bit odd because they start telling me how much they have enjoyed my films or songs. They talk to me in the first person! Event. Could you sum up easily what it is about Marilyn that makes her so special to you and why she is still such an icon generally? Laura. (Without hesitation) Yes, it is the fact that she is so sexually empowered yet so strangely naïve. Event. Does your husband live with Laura Nixon or Marilyn Monroe? Laura. Definitely Laura Nixon……Marilyn is the third person in our relationship……very much a character that I play. Event. How much of Marilyn is in Laura? Laura. These days only about 20%. But when I was younger it was difficult to tell them apart! Event. If you could go back in time and ask her one question, what would it be? Laura. I am not sure I have got one; I would just like to sit down and have a drink and a girly chat with her. Event . If you could own one of Marilyn’s iconic items of clothing what would it be? Laura. Well not the white dress because it only looks good being blown up by a fan! Probably the figure hugging black tasselled dress in ‘Some like It Hot’

Event. You were voted the sexiest woman in Brighton, how does that make Laura Nixon feel? Laura. I am of course very flattered, but it is only the character I play, I am a bit of a ‘tom boy’ in real life and very casually dressed as a rule. Event. …and finally, how would Marilyn end this interview? Laura. (a broad grin comes across Laura’s face and without warning she is Marilyn, she tops up my glass of wine from the bottle on the table and stands up. Suddenly Marilyn’s voice sounds out, as if from the grave) I hope you enjoy the show. (bends towards me and delivers an exaggerated kiss on my cheek, smiles and wiggles away. Laura Nixon is Marilyn Monroe!) I watch the show still churning over our meeting in my head, the show is fabulous and I return home. I waxed lyrical to my wife about Laura/Marilyn to the point of exhaustion and just before we turned in for the night, she said, ‘Will you be washing that big red pair of lips off your cheek tonight or are you waiting till the morning?’ ‘Er… the morning,’ I mumbled, ‘the morning’.

9ŠÎ‡Ìž‡šÌ@šbkÂÌ If you were not at Worthing Jazz at The Hare and Hounds on Tuesday 5th March then you missed a terrific evening of fun and entertainment. The band performing were a local Latin-combo, Afro Blue, consisting (on this occasion) of 5 musicians: Andy Ferguson on tenor sax and flute, Terry Seabrook on piano, Steve Thompson on double bass, Paul Burnett-Kirk on percussions and Alex Eberhard on drums. They were joined in the second set by Cookie Jones on percussions with Paul Burnett-Kirk switching to the bongos.

Bookings for April are Benn Clatworthy, tenor saxophonist (2nd), Sarah Pritchard, vocalist (9th), Ricky Eastman, saxophonist (16th), Alyson Green, vocalist (23rd) and The Esmond Selwyn Organ Trio (30th).

Worthing Jazz at The Hare and Hounds in Portland Road is the primary venue for modern jazz and where meetings have taken place weekly for the past 18 years (mostly on a Tuesday night). During the past month we have been treated to a pleasurable mix of music and musicians, including Mark Bassey (trombone) and Simon Savage (tenor sax), Jo Kimber (vocalist), Ian Price (tenor sax) and Sylvia McEwan (vocalist).

Afro Blue quite obviously enjoy performing and love their music. We were treated to terrific renditions of such wonderful songs as Bags Groove (John Coltrane ), Mercy Mercy Mercy (Joe Zawinal/Cannonball Adderley), Softly as in a Morning’s Sunrise, Mambo Inn, Oleo (Sonny Rollins), Little Sunflower (Freddie Hubbard), Line for Lyons (Gerry Mulligan ), Sister Sadie (Horace Silver), Red Clay (Freddie Hubbard), Blue Bossa and Caravan ( Duke Ellington). The more they played the better they became. The better they became the more the audience enjoyed themselves and showed their appreciation. The more that happened the better the band played, and so on. A fantastic atmosphere, some wonderful music and a terrific evening for one and all!

The primary venue for traditional jazz is The Denton Lounge, next to the Pavilion Theatre on the Pier. Meetings are held there on a Monday evening: through the winter it is once a month, in the spring and autumn it is fortnightly and in the summer it is weekly. The bands heard over the past year have included The Muskrat Ramblers, Andy Woon’s All Stars, Syd Bailey’s Tailgate Six, Chicago Jazz and Wally’s Wheeltappers. The venue is always packed, with the audience enjoying a splendid meal and some terrific music. Future bookings at The Denton Lounge include Dave Stradwick’s Sussex Kings (1st), Derek Little’s Featherstone Five (15th) and The Esmond Selwyn Organ Trio (29th). Other venues in Worthing where jazz takes place are Barney’s (every Saturday evening), The Spyglass (), The Wheatsheaf (first Thursday of every month) and The Charles Dickens (the first Sunday of every month). If you know of any other venues or booking dates that need to be brought to everyone’s attention, then please let me know, via the magazine’s e-mail address.


easy steps to a longer life

The title 7 Easy Steps to a Longer Life made front page news in a National Daily Newspaper recently, March 2013. Following these steps can prevent heart disease, as well as being the key to a longer, healthier life. Making small simple changes to your daily routine is the secret. The very first step, however, is to slow down and look at what you really need to do to get started͙͘get honest! Do you realise how your choices contribute to the stress you encounter on a daily basis? Healthy living is so much simpler than you might think, ŝƚ͛Ɛ really not rocket science, but the difficulty in maintaining a healthy lifestyle is implementing it! Why does there appear to be a steady increase in stress related sickness, as well as increased reports of heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure? Great question, the answer is really simple, generally speaking, most people do not put their own health at the top of their list of priorities. Their lists look something like, family, then work and last of all themselves. Is this you? What steps should you take to start implementing a healthier lifestyle? The newspaper reported: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Stay physically active Keep a healthy weight Eat healthily Maintain a good cholesterol level Keep your blood pressure down Control your blood sugars DŽŶ͛ƚƐŵŽŬĞ

How would you feel if you could implement just one small change into your routine, make it a habit and review it in a month͛ƐƚŝŵĞ? Then implement another small change and do the same. How about simply reprioritising? Put your health first, then your family, followed by your job? Work and family will always suffer if you are not taking good care of yourself first. Often people experience tiredness, irritability, lack of sleep, dietary problems, anxiety and even depression, the list is endless. All these symptoms can be a result of not putting your health first.

Let¶s look at some simple actions you could implement straight away to start improving your lifestyle: Go to bed a little earlier Eat 3 healthy meals each day Leave the µoffice¶ on time Spend a little more time with your family and/or friends Drink more water Regular exercise Talk about your feelings Laugh Explore nature

You will find plenty of evidence which supports all of the above in relation to achieving a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. Finally, if you are struggling with any of the symptoms above think about getting some help. Talk to your local GP. A life coach could also help you work towards your goals of a healthier, happier life.

A CELLULOID COMMENT ON CINEMA PAST AND PRESENT American Graffiti American Graffiti is a nostalgic trip back to the early 1960s, the teenage years of its legendary filmmakers ʹ producer Francis Ford Coppola who directed The Godfather and writer and director, George Lucas who went on to create the Star Wars trillogy. Made in 1973 & set one summer night in California in 1962, American Graffiti is a snapshot of the adventures of a group of teenagers on the brink of adulthood & a final farewell to childhood dreams before reality steps in. The main sting in the tail is that the film also signifies the end of the post-WWII American Dream. The four main characters are the nice guy Steve Bolander (Ron Howard), the tough drag-racing guy John Milner (Paul Le Mat), ƚŚĞĂǁŬǁĂƌĚŶĞƌĚLJŐƵLJdĞƌƌLJ͚dŚĞdŽĂĚ͛&ŝĞůĚƐ;ŚĂƌůĞƐDĂƌƚŝŶ Smith) & the slightly whimsical Curt Henderson (Richard Dreyfuss). Over the course of the night all four characters develop, ^ƚĞǀĞ͛Ɛ treatment of his high school sweetheart Laurie Henderson (Cindy Williams) suggests that he is not ready for the commitment she wants. John is shown to be a bit of a softy & realises he ǁŽŶ͛ƚ be king of the road overnight & Terry learns the lesson that being himself is enough to impress a girl. My only criticism would be that there was not much of a plot, however I loved the nostalgia of the film, the culture and innocence of the teenagers was fascinating and I particularly ĞŶũŽLJĞĚƐĞĞŝŶŐƚŚĞϭϵϲϬ͛ƐĨĂƐŚŝŽŶ͘dŚĞƌĞĂƌĞƐŽŵĞĂŵĂnjŝŶŐďŝŐ American cars in the film, which were eye catching even for non car lovers. The soundtrack was an eclectic mix of music from the ĞƌĂǁŝƚŚƚƵŶĞƐĨƌŽŵƵĚĚLJ,ŽůůĞLJĂŶĚƚŚĞ͚ŝŐŽƉƉĞƌ͕͛ƚŽŶĂŵĞ two. American Graffiti is a masterpiece for its time.

James Bond Skyfall The plot surrounds a hard-drive that has a list of operatives undercover with terrorist organizations all over the world which is stolen, and used to blackmail M (played by Judy Dench). James Bond sets out to recover the drive, which leads him to Silva, who is out for revenge. Daniel Craig played James Bond previously in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. In this film, Bond is played as a more experienced agent, still with his trust and loyalty to M and his country. There is a sexy sequence with fellow agent Eve (Naomie Harris) but the main Bond girl in Skyfall is Judi Dench. She is under pressure from the Government to step down and retire, but she fights to stay in her job to cope with her own nightmare legacy. :ĂǀŝĞƌĂƌĚĞŵ͛ƐĐŚĂƌĂĐƚĞƌ͕ is my personal favourite villain to date, probably because he is completely insane and reminds me of Hannibal >ĞĐƚĞƌ͘,ĞŐĞƚƐƌŝŐŚƚƵŶĚĞƌŽŶĚ͛ƐƐŬŝŶ͕ƉƌŽĚĚŝŶŐ him about his drink and pill dependency and sexual identity.

MADAM BUTTERFLY PAVILION THEATRE FEB 23RD The almost capacity audience at the Worthing Pier Pavilion, on one of the most bitter nights of the Winter had their decision to venture out completely vindicated.

MONTY DON FEB 27TH CONNAUGHT THEATRE A near capacity audience turned out tonight for this one man show; Monty Don, very well known to television audiences for his long standing stewardship of Gardeners World and numerous other series. He held this audience easily with his intimate and honest style.

First and foremost ,he told us, he loves to garden, and sometimes feels resentful of his television work for keeping him from his private gardening pursuits. He does television because it pays well, but makes sure we are aware of the painfully slow process involved in the creation of just one half hour programme. From the age of seventeen he realised that he needed, in a profound way, to garden and it has become a lifelong and sustaining passion which somewhere along the way happened to begin to provide an income. It is fairly well known by now that he is well acquainted with what Winston Churchill called his 'Black Dog', and he talked openly and movingly of his ongoing battle with depression. His passion is his best weapon in the fight, along with his openness about a still somewhat underestimated, misunderstood and taboo illness. For the first seventy minutes he spoke, simultaneously giving us a comprehensive slide show from his own immense archive of photographs. It was important to him that we understood that his own perspectives are often very different from those of his television producers. With missionary zeal he wanted us to know

that we could all benefit from gardening at whatever level we choose, and that doing it is far more important than getting it right. Many slides showed us the journeys from 'before' to 'after' that he has gone on in his own beloved plot. Many more slides showed us the global garden inspirations he has drawn on. Inspiration, though, he added, accounts for perhaps thirty per cent, the other seventy, as in most pursuits, being hard work. In the last thirty minutes he took questions from the audience. One asked if the BBC might not allow his programmes to be an hour long rather than thirty minutes. His response was that he was quite happy with the thirty minute format, leaving audiences wanting more, and that many an hour long programme would benefit from being edited down to forty minutes. The BBC, he told us, is not currently very interested in gardening. He finally called a halt, telling us that he had a four hour journey home, and that the next camera crew would be arriving at seven in the morning. Monty Don left us all wanting more.

RUSSIAN COSSACKS MARCH 1ST PAVILION THEATRE This was a wonderful evening of high octane entertainment, which deserved a far larger audience than Worthing mustered for this first performance of a forty- one venue tour covering the length and breadth of England, Wales and Scotland over the next eight weeks. What the audience lacked in numbers, it made up for with very enthusiastic responses throughout the evening. The sheer energy on display was exhausting just to watch, and one can only hope that they are being decently accommodated on what looks like an extremely tough schedule. I intend to see performance number forty one at the Horsham Capitol Theatre (April 21), though I can hardly believe they will still be standing, let alone flinging themselves around as they were this evening. Other venues not too far distant include Tunbridge Wells (March 5), Epsom (March 12), Shanklin IOW (April 16), Southsea

(April 17), and Croydon (April 20). Nine musicians in charming national costumes were ranged across the back of the stage, and were absolutely integral to the evening, with occasional solo spots of breathtaking virtuosity. A singing ensemble of eight also took the limelight at certain points, with again the occasional solo spot. Singers and musicians were all individually amplified, which occasionally meant the volume was just a little too high, but this is a minor quibble. At some points the whole company were on stage, and looked quite spectacular, particularly in the Round Dance '' Winter Fantasy'', which opened the second half, when all were dressed in frosty blue and white. The undoubted stars of the evening though were the ballet troupe, as they are billed in the programme. Ten young men and ten young ladies, average age twenty five, showed athleticism and choreographic accuracy of a very high order, with some delightful comic numbers thrown in for good measure. Numerous colourful costumes, all attractive and extremely well cared for, added another element of anticipation and surprise. The whole evening had the feel of having stepped back in time to a vision of a Ruritanian society unfettered by materialism, mortgages and greed. Though the programme indicated a World War song, all the vocal contributions were, naturally, sung in Russian, and were all seemingly optimistic and upbeat. It was a joyful evening of acrobatic dancing, singing and music making and I urge you to seek it out. You will not be disappointed. LJWŚŝůŝƉdŝĐĞŚƵƌƐƚ

Carl Seebold moved to Worthing in 1904, from Southend where his family had lived for several years. Seebold acquired the site of the future Dome in 1906. Seebold (of German origin) began construction of the Seebold Kursaal in 1910, costing £4000. World War I broke out on 28 July 1914 and after casualties began to mount the residents became increasingly anti-German. To save his business, Seebold held a competition in 1915 for a new name. The prize was £1.00. It was not long after World War I had drawn to a close in 1918 that the Dome was converted into full time cinema. Seebold had arranged for a ranked floor to be added to

the Coronation Hall as a temporary measure in 1914 but it was not until 1921 that the change was made permanent when the Dome was re-modelled for a sum of £8000. It remained in continuous use as a cinema until the Dome was closed for refurbishment on 5 January 1999. After the end of World War II the Dome went into a steady decline due to heavy competition. Seebold died in 1951. In 1969 Worthing Borough Council purchased the Dome as part of a redevelopment scheme. These plans, were poorly received and its designs heavily criticised. The redevelopment scheme stalled thereafter, leaving the Dome cinema in the hands of the borough council that had declared the intention to demolish it. The Dome received much publicity in 1987 when Director David Leland decided to use the cinema as a location in his film Wish You Were Here, starring Tom Bell. On 27 April 1989 the borough council approved the plans to redevelop the town centre. The Dome was one of many old buildings to be torn down, including some Grade II listed buildings. There was a public outcry. In spite of the widespread local opposition to the redevelopment, the council proceeded with their plans. In response, campaigners sent an application to the Department of the Environment to have the Dome registered as a listed building. The Dome became a grade II listed building on 31 May 1989.

Between 1989 and 1991 there were a series of planning battles between the council and conservationists, which ended when a government inspector overturned a council

decision that applications to develop the area around the Dome on a piece by piece basis were premature. In February 1989, the council put forward £110,000 towards building work. The Dome Preservation Trust was expected to raise an equal amount so that the work could go ahead. Control of the Dome was returned to the Borough Council on 25 March 1992. The council immediately closed the cinema over safety concerns, to the shock of local residents. Council officers estimated £100,000 would be needed to make safe the wiring, though Seeboard eventually carried out the work for £26,500. Even after this extensive restoration, it was estimated that work costing a further £600,000 was needed and in 1995 Worthing Borough Council decided it was time to put the freehold of the cinema on the market. The Chapman Group put in a bid with the intention of turning the Dome into a nightclub, which the council approved. Enormous protests followed and this may have been a factor in Chapman Group's decision to announce that it was pulling out of the redevelopment of the Dome in October 1996.

In November 1997 the borough council decided to put the Dome Cinema up for sale again. The Dome Preservation Trust renamed itself the Worthing Dome and Regeneration Trust at this time and began work on a bid to buy the Dome from the council. The cost of renovating the Dome was estimated at £1,000,000. By January 1999 there were four bids for the Dome Cinema. On 5 March 1999 the borough council accepted the bid from the Worthing Dome and Regeneration Trust on the condition that their applications for funding from English Heritage and the National Lottery were successful, but on 5 April 1999 the council closed the Dome for reasons of health and safety. After eighty-eight years the Dome was the longest continuously running cinema in United Kingdom and the only full-time cinema in Worthing. 

The Heritage Lottery Fund was willing to put up £1,750,000 for the complete restoration of the Dome but only on the condition that the trust raised £500,000 itself first to demonstrate sufficient local interest to make the project worthwhile. The cinema continued normal business until December 2005 when the major work of restoration began and the Dome was closed again. It reopened on 6 July 2007 after extensive building work.

The Steakhouse Tapas & Grill FINDON

The short drive out of town to Nepcote Lane, Findon Village will not fade in our memory like the late winter snow had done on the evening of our visit to The Steakhouse. I was taking my wife and nine year old daughter to this highly recommended emporium of ‘rustic tapas’ and mouth-watering steaks. Our first impression upon arrival was that this venue could be intimate or highly social depending on your requirements and of course where you sat. The bar was spacious with an eating area and chill-out sofas. We were shown down a few steps into a multi-levelled intriguing space where alcoves beckoned you in and a banqueting table on a raised platform invited corporate functions to visit. We chose a mid-level more general dining area that still provided intimacy with an air of sociability. But what were we to expect? It was no accident that we had made this restaurant our choice for our family night out. We wanted to taste what the culmination of years of experience around the world and assisting Marco Pierre White and Raymond Blanc could do for our evening meal. The only way was to let Celebrity Owner/Chef Paul Ellis show us what he could do! It was at this point that Paul appeared from his kitchen and nonchalantly passed through the restaurant to give some instructions to his staff before returning to his own domain. He clearly was a man who was confident and relaxed about his ability to deliver something special to the assembled patrons before him. I felt that his casual glance across the room was just to assess what may lie ahead of him that night. Those familiar with Tapas menus would still find something they had not tried before or certainly not since their trip into ‘non-tourist’ Spain. The menu was littered with old favourites such as Sun Dried Tomatoes, that having been infused with virgin garlic olive oil succulent beyond belief and fell apart in the mouth. Caribbean Jerk Wings were a highly acceptable new experience, the Spanish Cheese and House Chutney with Fig bread kept the starters moving at an enthusiastic pace, which only slowed to savour the Chef’s special of Spanish Fish Cake. All this was served on a rustic slate just hinting at the food’s origin. Having embarrassingly looked as though we had not eaten for a week, it was not long before the table was cleared and we were trying to conceal our enthusiastic glances over our shoulders to get first sight of our main course exiting the kitchen. I had been unable to resist the Pan Seared Sussex Beef Fillet with Roasted Vine Tomatoes, Portobello Mushrooms and Jacket Potato. I wrestled with myself when choosing between Peppercorn – Rioja – Béarnaise, but chose the first on the list.

Only a few minutes passed and my wife’s Local Wild Mushroom Linguine with Parmesan Cream, the steak of choice and my daughter’s ‘mini’ steak chosen from a menu for small 9 arrived full of promise and style. Paul Ellis made his second visit to our table to ensure adults that his efforts were being suitably received. They were! Whilst I should have been diligently enquiring as to my family’s impressions and satisfaction to what had just been put in front of them, I confess I became absorbed in my own medium rare fillet that would not allow me to break for idle conversation. The creamy Peppercorn Sauce complimented every mouthful of the perfectly seared steak. The only interruption being my wife asking to sample what was clearly totally absorbing me! She too agreed the meat was sublime. Having searched my plate for any remaining tasty morsel I began to take stock and return to being the caring family man who entered the restaurant some while before. My excitable daughter who had not ‘squeaked’ for sometime was just putting her knife and fork together and broadly smiling at me across the table. On perfect cue my wife followed suit. Nothing left on her plate either. It was then I realised that in my enthusiasm to eat my own dish I had not noticed too much about my wife’s pasta. I was assured it was wonderful. ‘The Girls’ thought it only ‘right and polite’ to try out the Sticky Toffee Pudding and Home Made Chocolate Brownie with Chocolate Sauce both supported by Paul’s homemade ice cream. I preferred to abstain from dessert and continue to savour the taste of the fillet, although a morsel of Chocolate Brownie did find its way begrudgingly across the table as a ‘taster for Dad’! A varied Wine List boasting wines from France, Italy, Spain, Chile, South Africa and New Zealand got neglected by us on this occasion and replaced by soft drinks and San Miguel lager inspired by the Tapas. However our next visit, will see us tempted by a bottle of Chablis Simmonet Febvre (France) or a Costa Vera Merlot (Chile). There is no way that you could judge the evening as anything other than a complete success. The notables being the food and not something else, that is so often the case when eating out. The Steakhouse Tapas & Grill comes highly recommended from this food enthusiast without reservation. Paul Ellis ŝƐ a ‘Celebrity Chef’!

Dear Event

Dear Sir,

Maybe it would be a good idea to let the reader know what features and events you will be reporting on during the course of the year? Are all the events going to be within your catchment area or will you be reporting on Goodwood, Brighton, (gay pride etc) Horsham Theatre and Cowdray Park ? Just a thought. Like the magazine hope you can keep up the style.

I have enjoyed looking at your new magazineâ&#x20AC;Ś. I like the layout and its varied content. I particularly related to the Alien article very much! I admit to being one of those that has not voted for 20 years. I want proportional representation and have lost all faith in the current system. Regardless who is in office I believe it is all contrived and makes no difference. Just a pretence! I think that the real power lies with an invisible group and everything is a lie to keep the minions happyâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Śour opinions do not really matterâ&#x20AC;Ś..nobody in power cares about the country or the people in it.

Dear Event Good to see the sports pagesâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Ś..any chance of any football pages ? Footy Fan Findon

Dear Editor I notice that you are quite keen on the modern history of Worthing but how about the ancient history like Cissbury Ringâ&#x20AC;Ś. As a child going to school in Worthing I found the subject fascinating but unless my archaeological hunger is sated by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Time Teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on television I am found starving. I would be interested in maybe carrying out some research on your behalf.

  Ă&#x192;Ă&#x192;  Â&#x2014; Ă&#x192; C < My husband picked up a copy of your magazine at Winners yesterday - nice publication and so needed in this town of ours. I can't count the number of times we have wanted to go out for the evening in Worthing, and haven't been able to find any source of information re what's on where, so thank you for that. I was drawn to the polar bear and Greenwatch page. I wonder if you are aware that Worthing is a Transition Town. We are very active and put on events all the time but very few people know we exist for website see www.transitiontownworthing.ning.com. Pauline Cory

Personal rights are being eroded especially in the workplace and when we are retired. We are becoming like a third world country! One day I intend to escape this so called civilised society. I also thought the banking article in the business pages compounds my beliefs that we are in a cruel and uncaring dictatorship that allows huge bonuses for the few and the taxpayer un-repaidâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;Ś..I will climb down off my soapbox nowâ&#x20AC;Ś..!

+HOSIXOĂšKLQWVÂŤĂš f<   <<<Ă&#x2026;<Ă&#x2026;D<Ă&#x2026; <Ă&#x2026; }< SHRUBS & TREES There is still time to plant trees and shrubs. However, by mid month it will be a little late to transplant large trees or shrubs, so do them now. The months of March, April and May are ideal for pruning evergreens. So if you have a Juniper, Cypress or conifer that need shearing or pruning this is a good time to accomplish this task. Remove all dead, diseased, and undesirable wood. However, do not prune back into the bare wood part of the plant.

Tips for April Divide perennials like Daylilies, Delphiniums, iris, chrysanthemums, Daisies, and Phlox. The additional plants you create can be traded or given to friends, or moved to a new area of the garden.

plant peas, carrots, beets, spinach, cauliflower, cabbage, etc. Root crops like potatoes, radishes, parsnips and onions can be planted at anytime. Late this month you can plant beans and corn. Warmer weather crops like tomatoes; squash, cucumbers and peppers should not be planted until next month.

Prune your Forsythia after it finishes flowering. Broadleaf and needle leaf evergreens benefit most from lightly spreading a high nitrogen fertilizer around their bases.

PERENNIALS, ANNUALS & BULBS April is the month for planting summer flowering bulbs like dahlias, gladiolas and lilies. Mix bulb fertilizer, processed manure and peat moss into the planting soil. Tuberous Begonias and Canna should not be set outdoors until all danger of frost has passed, so wait until next month. Plant annual seeds of asters, cosmos, marigolds, zinnias in the garden. When all frost danger has passed you can move your stored fuchsias and geraniums outdoors. Trim them back, feed and re-pot if necessary. Water them well. When they have finished blooming, you should deadhead your spring flowering bulbs. Do not cut off the green foliage yet! These green leaves continue to grow for a few weeks, and provide the bulb with food for flowering next year.

Hybrid Tea Roses should be fertilized prior to buds beginning to bloom. Using a systemic fertilizer will help prevent insect infestation later in the summer, as it feeds your rose. Plant new rosebushes before growth starts and buds swell. If you have a pond or pool you should set aquatic plants any time after the middle of the

FRUITS & VEGGIES Control weeds and aerate the soil by cultivating between the rows of plants. April is a great time to select and plant fruit trees and berry plants. Fruits and berries do best when planted in full sun. Plant perennial vegetables like asparagus, rhubarb, horseradish, etc. It's also time to

As your direct-seeded crops sprout, be sure to keep them thinned out to avoid crowding. Cut out all the dead canes from your raspberry patch. The new canes that will bear this year's fruit should have new, swollen buds along the edges. Thin these to five canes per foot of row to allow good air circulation and prevent overcrowding. When danger of frost has passed, uncover strawberry beds and keep them well watered.


  Hi everyone, now Spring as finally arrived (although at the time of writing, the weather people are promising more snow!), I thought it might be good to see if you know much about the spring and what's happening out and about in Sussex over the QH[W PRQWK , YH DOVR GRQH D ´MAMMOTH WORDSEARCHµ SX]]OH IRU \RX WR complete to see if you know your spring flowers.

SHORT COMMITMENT IS THE LONG VIEW... Those that calculate and research these type of things say that the number of high-street shoppers declined by about 12 per cent between 2008 and 2012. With one in six shops empty in most high streets, landlords would like to be portrayed as the injured party. However WKH\DUHJXLOW\RIµVHOI-KDUPLQJ¶ Inflexible landlords have made it impossible for the high street to compete. Commercial property used to be let on 25-year leases, without break clauses and with upwardonly rent reviews every five years. This arrangement, which dates from the 1970s, and before was designed to turn property into a kind RIDµJXDUDQWHHGSHnsion fund¶IRUFRPPHUFLDODQG private investors alike. These long leases are still sometimes signed for head offices in the most desirable parts of London and other cities. They never were suitable for high shops even in boom periods. The average high-street lease length in 2002 was 12 years; now it is under eight. With a shift in consumer spending from µbricks to FOLFNV¶ LQWHUQHWVKRSSLQJRQD steady upward spiral) high street retailers would benefit from more flexibility. But the property industry still remains obsessed with lease length, disinterest in the retail market and intransigence at unbelievable levels. I am sure that all these landlords would consider themselves to be shrewd businessmen. Surely being shrewd involves taking into consideration all outside influences. In these days of instant communication and technology, trends play an ever increasingly large part in how and when people shop.

,QµWKHROGGD\V¶\RXFRXOGUHVW assured that every high street ZRUWKLW¶VVRUWZRXOGKDYHDOOWKH same store names occupying the key prestigious properties. The lesser private retailer fed off the retail frenzy they created. Not anymore. Fashion and trends determine who is in the high street and it is everyman for himself. How can you rely on a shopping centre looking the same in five years with the big names disappearing on a monthly basis? Blockbusters, Comet, HMV, the list is added to almost daily, so how can landlords expect a 25 year commitment? The problem, as the landlord sees it. is that short lets involves more management and paperwork. Well wake up Mr /DQGORUG,W¶VFDOOHGUXQQLQJD business! There has always been an expression in life that µWKere is no such thing as a free OXQFK¶:HOO,VD\WRODQGORUGV HYHU\ZKHUHµWKHUHLVQRVXFK WKLQJDVDIUHHSHQVLRQ¶<RXDUH going to have to put some effort into it like the rest of us. So, shorter leases require landlords to think ahead almost continuously and study market trends and retail fashions like the retailers that they rent out to.. None of this is good for private investors, who should no longer treat shops as buy-and-forget investment. But it is necessary if shoppers are to be attracted back to the high street. Sadly, the alternative is terminal decline of the high street. /ĨLJŽƵŚĂǀĞĂŶLJĐŽŵŵĞŶƚƐŽƌŝƐƐƵĞƐƌĞŐĂƌĚŝŶŐ ďƵƐŝŶĞƐƐŝŶƚŚĞƌĞŐŝŽŶƉůĞĂƐĞĐŽŶƚĂĐƚŽƵƌĞĚŝƚŽƌ ďLJĞŵĂŝůĞǀĞŶƚŵĂŐĂnjŝŶĞǁŽƌƚŚŝŶŐΛŐŵĂŝů͘ĐŽŵ

 At Clear Computing we take security very seriously regardless if you are a home your or you utilise IT in a business capacity. We hold an international accreditation for security management so view dealing with threats to your IT as provident. In the following we hope to outlay some ways to protect yourself:

A Threat is defined as a computer program, a person, or an event that violates the security system. A threat causes loss of data and attacks the data privacy. Most of the data of an organization stored inside the computer is very important and more valuable than the computer hardware and software. It can be damaged due to many reasons. You must protect your data from illegal access or from damage. The following are the main threats to data security.



An authorized user of data may unintentionally delete or change sensitive data. There are two solutions to this problem: Firstly, the users must be assigned proper rights to minimise such events. Only the authorised user with certain rights may be allowed to delete or modify data after following a step-by-step process. Secondly, periodic backup of data should be taken for it to be possible to recover any deleted data. A proper password protection should be used to cover any resource. A log file should also be maintained to keep track of all the activities performed on the data. Some strong encryption algorithms should be used, so that if anyone gets access to the data, he would not be able to make any sense of it. Latest antivirus software should be used to scan all data coming into the organization Computers and all backing storage devices should be placed in locked rooms. Only authorised users can access these resources. Authorised users must be asked to change their passwords periodically.

Data Protection Data protection means making sure that private data belonging to a person or organization is kept hidden from those who are not authorised to use it. Many organizations collect the data of their customers. Some of this data is needed for efficiently processing the business transactions but much of this data is personal information of the customer. For example, a hospital collects data about the disease history of patients. All the personal data kept by different organisations may be disclosed for some legal purpose. The data protection rules do not allow anyone to disclose personal data of any person. It means that any personal data kept by some organisations should never under any circumstances be disclosed to unauthorised persons or organisations. A breach of data security can now cost you dearly as the ICO is fining establishments for loss of data or non compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Make sure your Business Continuity Plan sets out a way of recovery if your data is lost or compromised.

You'll even be able to buy your tickets online (Online service not currently available - coming soon!) Hank Rivers was inspired as he led Worthing Thunder to a 90-69 win over Hemel Storm in an EBL Division 1 encounter at the Worthing Leisure Centre on Sunday evening. Rivers hit a season-high 41 points and 19 rebounds to lead from the front as Worthing ended the double-header weekend with two vital wins.

Hemel found their feet as the first quarter neared its end. They attacked the Thunder front-line and went to the line on back-to-back possessions to end the first but Worthing were still leading 22-17.

But Thunder regrouped quickly and kept their lead at double digits throughout the quarter, despite Storm edging the first ten minutes of the second half 22-19, Worthing had a 64-52 lead going into the fourth period.

A CLUB FOR EVERYONE!

The Jets travelled to Lancing College with a full squad for our home game against an in form Panthers who are currently sitting third in the league. Although missing our coach with some flimsy excuse Martin smoothly stepped into the role of Captain/Coach. We started the first set with Josh and Dom through the middle, Iain and Kishan as the outside hitters and Matt Wilkes and Martin as Opposite and Setter. After a great first serve and an early comedy moment on Wilko's second serve where he had to dive halfway across the court to reach his mis-thrown toss, the Jets settled quickly and with solid hitting and serving from everyone especially Iain. Thanks to the net being owned by the Jets it was very quiet back court, this along with a freezing hall lead to some sloppy first balls in from easy free balls which Martin made the most of and the set was quickly over.

Martin then decided to see if we could finish without him, bringing Dom on to replace him and passing the setting duties to Wilko. The end of the set was a little scrappy including a rotation fault by us which was quickly spotted by the eagle eyed Luis however with some good setting which Bernard used to find the gap down the line and Josh to create havoc though the middle Jets closed the second set. However Panthers noses were up after a strong finish going into the tricky third set. Round Three saw us mix it up again with Iain playing Opposite and Dom came on for Josh. With Panthers stepping it up and the Jets slipping into their traditional third set, finally the back court had more to do and woke up with strong covering of the block by Bernard we got it back to 1919 and showed our desire to have a strong finish to the season and keep the pressure on Hastings by going on to win the set. With tough games coming up against Llamados and Sharks it was great to see the Jets determination and focus to win in three sets.

Demons lose to Adur 3-0 March 2013 Like a Trojan army in spirit, the demon ladies went out fighting set one, sorting out a great defensive,

Round two saw us continuing to follow Andy's cunning master plan bringing on Bernard for Iain and Matt Lay for Dom. Again Jets started strongly with only one ball hitting the deck without a Worthing hand touching it. With better first balls in Martin was able to open up the middle and Jets were cruising to a comfortable lead 16ish - 4 thanks to Matt Lay setting the tone for the set early on through dominating the net and absolutely killing a couple of quick balls.

After a stern talking to, it was time to put into action plan B; the attack! It was a strong few moments in set two, fuelled by the double French bake off

wafting from the wings, and momentarily distracted by someone eating Chinese food...Sarah found her camp hand, Smack did her thing, and Abby attempting to return anything within her vicinity! Sadly, by set three, confidence had fallen, balls were falling and like beautiful angels falling, the demons sunk to an all time low, as had Abby who hit the deck with a clatter, and it was all over... Luckily Lorna kept the pitch side fan club thriving (go Nigel!) and Sandrine produced the best cheese straws ( Oh yeah with bacon and mustard...) and special almond cake, so the team could go home happy!

  tŽƌƚŚŝŶŐŽƵďůĞƐĂŶĚ dƌŝƉůĞƐdŽƵƌŶĂŵĞŶƚ͊͊ Worthing VC will again be running the Doubles and Triples Tournament at Southwick on the weekend of Sat 4th and Sun 5th May. Although Emma and Damian are the principal organisers they are looking for help to set up the courts on Fri 3rd and to give a little help with the running of the 2 days of action. Ideally we want to see plenty of teams from Worthing entering the Doubles on Saturday and/or the Triples on Sunday. I played a few times in the past when younger and fitter ... it's really good fun for all standards of players. By entering and giving a bit of help you can help to make sure that the Club makes a profit (which will help to keep down the subs at a time of rapidly increasing costs). Don't be shy! Thanks Nigel

My time in Cape Town is now coming to an end and by the time you read this I will be home. Once again it has been such a productive trip. In my last update I mentioned the BEST KiteWorldWide Clinic, there is now a  video which really captures the vibe of the week. You can watch  here http://vimeo.com/60569755.  "BEST KiteWorldWide Camp stands for a full week of kitesurfing at its best. Present were, eight highly motivated camp participants as well as the two time world champion Youri Zoon and yours truly 'the man that touched the sky' Lewis Crathern. Adding to this we had lots of sun, plenty of wind and of course the new range of BEST Kiteboarding equipment. It was not just about kitesurfing but having an awesome time with the other ÂľSURVÂśDQGHQMR\LQJWKHZRQGHUIXOORFDWLRQV7KHÂľFKHUU\Âś RQWKHWRSRIWKLVUDWKHUVSHFLDOÂľFDNHÂśZDVWKDWHYHU\ERG\ stayed together in the KiteWorldWide Mansion, Cape Town in Sunset Beach." BEST Kiteboarding - bestkiteboarding.com KiteWorldWide - kiteworldwide.com Youri Zoon-yourizoon.com Lewis Crathern - facebook.com/LewisCrathernKitesurf Edit: James Boulding - facebook.com/steezproductions I have been coaching kitesurfing and motivating people to go harder for quite some time but this year was the first time I brought it to Cape Town. The 2013 clinics are coming to an end but are still running till I leave on the 15th. Here is a good video from the last one which took place on the 3rd of March. Adrian was a really great guy and so passionate about kitesurfing. We had a good time up at Dolphin Beach in quite rare conditions on a 9m comfortably powered. It was a great way to start a Sunday we hit the water at 10a.m and kited three hours till 1pm. Watch the latest video here http://vimeo.com/60941551 BEST South Africa combined with BEST once more to put on a great Demo Day on the 24th of Feb. I really enjoy these days, a lot of kiters come down and like to talk about the products and try them out on the water. It was a classic day in Table View, 20knots which picked up in the evening. After the demo we went back to the BEST shop had a few beers and talked further to the customers about their experiences on the different kit. All the riders were there as well, Youri Zoon, Gisela Pulido, Valentin Garat & Sam Medysky. All together we bring a really nice mix to WKHWDEOH,QFOXGLQJP\VHOIWKHUHÂśVULGHUVIURP)UDQFH8. Spain, Canada and Holland! I think the Demo Days are only going to get bigger.... Together with BEST Kiteboarding Africa I have started some Youth Training for the aspiring youngsters out here. It really is amazing how keen the kids are in Cape Town. They are learning from as young as 8! So many international kiteboarders come out every year to train, and this is really inspiring them. So far we have had one session which I decided to take as just an interactive presentation. I felt it was really important to encourage the kids that if you really want something in life, you can achieve it with hard work. We also looked at various ways to conduct yourself, how to deal with sponsors, keeping yourself fit and healthy, competition tips and a lot more! This week I will be running another session but I am going to get a bit more active out on the water with them. I hope I can make this grow with BEST all around the World, the workshops are really productive.






I am achieving some of my major goals in life! I just had confirmed my role as Commentator on the Kitesurf Tour Europe. This will stop in France, Spain and Holland as well as maybe one more stop to be confirmed. As taken from the Kitesurf Tour Europe website: http://www.kitesurftour.eu/ "We are happy to announce that Lewis Crathern will be our Tour Commentator during the KTE 2013. Every Event needs a good commentator to lead the Riders and the Visitors through each Event-Day. With his knowledge about Kiteboarding and his good connection to the participants, we have a great new team member on board. Lewis says: "I am over the moon to be providing the commentary for the KTE this year. One of my major passions is to deliver kiteboarding to the general public as well as the kitesurfing community. The KTE is really shaping up to be a major tour on the Kitesurfing Calendar and I am really looking forward to being at the events. My vision for these events is to provide accurate commentary in a way that everybody can understand." Lewis - welcome to our Team - we will have a fantastic year at the KTE 2013" Coming up next for me....Commentating at an event this weekend as well as another Youth Training day...Home on the 15th of March then on the 5th of April a long drive around Europe with my partner where I will be kiting and visiting some of the BEST shops. The end plan is to compete at the World Tour event in France....and finally thank you to event magazine for allowing me to share all this with you!
