Welcome to the September Edition… This has been another busy month for articles, so much so that I ran out of space to include a feature on me joining Sea Swim Fitness for an early morning dip. However through the magic of internet technology we have been able to include this as a supplement in the online edition, and space allowing will run it in the October print edition. See page 57 of the online edition. Readers might be interested to know that our website: www.letsgetlocal.co.uk includes a business offers section as well as an area for you to list items for sale. These are currently free so please do take advantage, it is very easy to use. Enjoy the magazine and keep those local articles coming in; whether you want to tell us about your hobby or club we would love to hear from you. Keith - Editor

Artist of the month

Barry Hinchliff I have been painting since art school days in the fifties in Chesterfield. I was drawn by the Peak district and the industrial landscape close to where I lived. After completing my studies at Chelsea art school I began my teaching career in London and later in Brighton. I was lucky to be able to retire early and combine painting and tutoring adults and some housework while my wife continued to work. I founded the art club in Rottingdean, which still continues, and enjoyed working with adults. I was responsible also for setting up the Grange Gallery when the RPS took over the building. I was the gallery organiser for 17 years. I had exhibited in Sussex since the sixties, but having a painting sold in the Royal Academy Summer exhibition I was invited to exhibit in galleries in Bristol, Harrogate and London. I also exhibited, and sold a painting, in the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol. I work in oils, based mainly on watercolours and some back up photography. My subject matter is mainly the landscape and townscape of Mediterranean Europe. After my first visit to Provence in the mid eighties my palette was changed for ever by the strong light, shade and textures of the region. Recently on one of my visits

to South Africa I painted two canvasses of the landscape of the Karoo. I am inspired by the flexible qualities of oil paint , wonderful for rendering slabs of light, slashes of foliage and deep translucent shadows. I am never short of subjects and can always gain some new way into a painting by gazing out of my studio window, my eyrie above Rottingdean. In the mid eighties I was asked to design and paint an opera set. I loved the work and still do this from time to time. I think working on a huge scale with rollers and big brushes helps my painting. I love to feel my way through a composition, adding figures into my pictures adds some extra atmosphere and I enjoy the problems of balance and juxtaposition

Body Talk with Peter Alexander

Gout A right royal pain Gout is a type of arthritis often known as the “disease of kings� due to its association with comfortable living. It usually affects middle aged and elderly people and is more common in men than women. Symptoms typically come on very quickly, usually waking the victim up at night. The most commonly affected joint is the big toe which becomes very painful, swells up and looks shiny and red. Sufferers may also have a fever and feel fatigued. There has been an increase in frequency in recent decades which is thought to be due to people living longer and to changes in our diet. Other joints such as the hand and knee can also get gout so if you are concerned it is worth having an assessment with your osteopath or GP to rule out other causes of pain such as osteoarthritis or rheumatic fever. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid crystals in the joint. Uric acid is a chemical waste product of normal body metabolism and is normally excreted during urination. In some people the body is less able to remove the build up and it is deposited in the joints where it causes inflammation and pain. About 20% of people will only have one attack of gout but others will have successive episodes. Most attacks last 1-2 weeks and will probably need treatment with an anti-inflammatory and sometimes

a drug called Allopurinol to lower uric acid levels in the body. Complete rest also helps to reduce the severity of symptoms. Gout occurs due to a combination of hereditary and life-style factors. You can reduce your risk of developing it by improving your diet with increased fruit intake, particularly strawberries, blueberries, cherries and bananas, and eating more green vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, spinach and kale. Cutting down on alcohol and high protein foods such as liver, kidney, red meat and anchovies can also help prevent what is a very painful and debilitating condition. Regular exercise will help to keep your joints healthy and reduce weight, another risk factor for gout. Drinking regular amounts of water throughout the day will help to flush through metabolic toxins such as uric acid and prevent them building up in the joints.

Saltdean Dental Health

WELCOME TO SALTDEAN DENTAL HEALTH WE GIVE YOU THE SMILE THAT GIVES YOU THE CONFIDENCE Here at Saltdean, we are a friendly, caring all-female team, providing gentle dental care for all the family. We are a modern practice providing cutting edge dentistry, well known for our comfortable, relaxed and calm environment, where we are proud to deliver state-of-the-art dentistry, both cosmetic and preventative. We are writing this article today to let you know that as well as general dentistry we also provide INVISIBLE ORTHODONTICS. We can help you to achieve the straight, white smile that you’ve always dreamed of, using “clearstep” and no one will ever know you’re in treatment (unless you tell them of course!) The important question; what is Clearstep? Clearstep is a way of achieving a beautiful smile invisibly, using clear positioners which are excellent at straightening overlapping , crooked or gappy teeth The results can be vouched for, as Helen Pollitt our Principal Dental surgeon, has herself just finished using CLEARSTEP and is delighted with how quickly she has achieved her goal of having straight white teeth. This is an alternative orthodontic approach, especially ideal if you are adverse to the idea of metal braces, over a long period. We also offer Inman aligners; which straighten crooked or protruding front teeth rapidly. Your front teeth are gently guided into position in a matter of weeks. Most cases usually complete within 6-16 weeks It is fast, safe and because it is removable will fit in with your lifestyle. As well as general dentistry treatments, Helen Pollitt, and our Associate Dentist, Rachil Stafylidou, offer cosmetic dentistry.

Here is a check list for you: Ÿ Are your old fillings black and unsightly? replace them with composite (white) fillings Ÿ Are the colour of your old crowns mis-matched against your teeth? we now offer pure porcelain metal-free crowns. Do you grind your teeth at night, or get headaches? mouthguards offer protection. Are you nervous of the dentist? sedation is the solution Ÿ Do you have misshapen or gappy teeth? veneers offer an effective and beautifully fast solution. Ÿ Would you like whiter teeth? Teeth whitening is your answer We also have our highly experienced Dental Hygienist, Sue Austin who is experienced in all aspects of dental hygiene, including periodontal treatments. Patients who have regular hygiene treatment increase their chances of keeping their teeth for life. Meanwhile, we wish you all good dental health!

Sea # Choir

Saltdean’s ‘Sea #’ choir I am very excited about starting Sea #. The idea to start the choir came from a friend of mine complaining that she couldn’t find the type of choir she was looking for in her area, and that Brighton was too far to go. She wanted something fun and she wanted it locally. I’ve been singing in choirs since secondary school and quite apart from the joy of making music, is the joy of making music as part of a group. When you work together with others to create something beautiful and exciting that speaks to your audience; that is the best feeling! Directing choirs has been part of my life for 9 years now and it’s been one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done as a music teacher. Now I want to bring all my experience to the local community and bring people together to share the wonder of making music. My aim is to bring people together of all ages, musical background and ability and have a great time learning songs together. I love a huge range of music, from classical and opera, to Middle American rock and current hits. I like songs that draw

the audience in, either by getting them up and dancing along, or reaching for their tissues! Singing is also such a great way to give yourself a lift. If you’ve had a long day, or life is tough, it’s amazing how a sing song with a group of friends who all enjoy it as much as you can put a smile on your face and make you feel GOOD . So come along and have your first session free and see for yourself. Bring a friend!. Wednesday evenings, 7.45pm at St Martins Church hall, Longridge Avenue, Saltdean. Usual fee will be £4.00 and £3.50 for concessions. Please contact Karina on 07803 709980 or Hayley on 07811 331959

Computer Tips & Advice 23

Top ten online mistakes. Here are the Top 10 Online Mistakes that people regularly make: 1. 2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

Passive Passwords: at the very least, you need to ensure you have different passwords for different sites. Languid Log-Outs: it's very tempting to stay logged into a site rather than having to resubmit your log in details every time, but it really is worth taking the time to log out of each site every single time you leave. Openly Honest: unless you are fully au fait with a sites security and privacy settings you need to be very careful just how much personal information you are posting online. Loving Links: clicking on dodgy links is one of the biggest ways cyber criminals gain access to computer systems and all too often people assume links are safe. Big Brand Trust: if you've used a search engine to find the web address of your bank, never assume search engine results will lead you to the genuine site. Scams Scram: you heard of the latest online scam, but that was last month so it must have gone away by now right? Not so I’m afraid.

7.

Tut-tut: some websites need to be avoided at all costs gambling sites, those containing "adult" content, and illegally downloading games or music can leave the doors wide open for criminals. 8. Deaf Ear: only 75% of people abandoned online transactions when they became aware that the web site they were on was not secure - if in doubt, bail out! 9. Procrastination: in a time-poor environment it's all too easy to click "leave until later to update/restart", but it is vital you keep your computer and anti-virus up to date in order to keep your systems as secure as possible. 10. Education: in the eyes of the law, ignorance is no excuse; in the eyes of criminals, your ignorance is their bliss - stay up to date with developments by following us on Twitter or regularly checking our website. We hope that this information will help you to stay safe whilst surfing, but we are always here if you need any help or further advice. We wish you, as always, continued happy and safe computing.

Local nutrionist Lin Bridgford with this month’s instalment of…

Bridgeford’s Best Bites:

Berries Berries are small, sweet, juicy, brightly coloured, fleshy fruits. They are produced from one ovary, with their many seeds embedded in the fruit. They can be one fruit (strawberry) or many joined together (raspberry). Berry colours are from natural plant pigments called polyphenols such as flavinoids, anthocyanins and tannins, which are concentrated in the skins and seeds. These have high anti-oxidant properties and are thought to help protect again many health problems and effects of aging. Polyphenols also help to block the enzymes that cancer cells need for growth and can activate a key enzyme that helps restore cellular ATP levels - i.e. energy! Green tea is also a rich source. Flavinoids have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-tumour, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic properties. They are also beneficial to the cardio-vascular system, having a vasodilatory effect, i.e. dilate the blood vessels, and also prevent blood clotting. Green, white and black tea are also rich sources, as are honey and onions. Anthrocyanins are a sub class of flavinoids. Tannins were thought of as anti- health, though it is now considered that the right amount of the right tannins is beneficial for a stronger heart. Good sources are tea and red wine. Common berries are blackberries (brambles), gooseberries, raspberries, strawberries, red and black currants. Nutritional Values of Raw Berries - Vitamins: Ÿ High in vitamin A and C, with smaller amounts of vitamin B, E, K Ÿ Vitamin B3 (niacin)and B5 (pantothenic acid) Ÿ Folate - particularly high in blackberries, strawberries, raspberries Ÿ B6 (pyridoxal-5 phosphate) - except in blackberries Ÿ Choline - except in gooseberries Ÿ Vitamin K - except in gooseberries, blackcurrants Ÿ Vitamin B1 in gooseberries, black currants Ÿ Vitamin B2 in red and black currants

Nutritional Values of Raw Berries - Minerals: Ÿ High in potassium; lesser amounts of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus Traces of copper, iron, manganese, sodium, zinc Ÿ Traces of selenium - except in black currants Ÿ Strawberries contain traces of fluoride Nutritional Values of Raw Berries - Other: Ÿ Rich in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids Ÿ Small amounts of protein Eat berries anytime on their own, with porridge or cereal, as a desert or smoothie or as a snack when you are passing the bush! Eat raw for the fullest nutrition; eat cooked, freeze for later or make jams/jellies. ENJOY! We are happy to advise you on your health matters.

Pilates with Tracy Stirzaker

The benefits of Pilates Want to improve your posture and strengthen your core? Give Pilates a go! I first became interested in Pilates after l decided l wanted a more balanced lifestyle and realised there was more to life than just sitting at a desk. After a day at the computer, my hips would feel tight, and my back and upper body felt strained. l share Joseph Pilates’ belief “Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness.” l found that Pilates challenged my body as-well as my mind. It was a wonderful stress reliever and great for my back and posture after a busy working day. “The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores vitality, invigorates the mind and elevates the spirit.” Joseph.Pilates Pilates inspired me to become a teacher with Body Control Pilates® - a method based on the work of Joseph Pilates (1880-1967). He created the Pilates method using features from various forms of exercise such as gymnastics, yoga, circus training and weight lifting. He combined them to form his own ‘Classical’ method

resulting in a perfect balance of strength and flexibility. Pilates focuses on strengthening your ‘core’ – back, abdominal & pelvic muscles - through a series of low repetition, low impact stretching and conditioning exercises. Thus improving your posture and providing a complete body workout, resulting in leaner, longer, toned muscles. My range of matwork classes include accessories to enhance the lessons, introduce variety and help create body awareness. My classes are small (6-8 people) to ensure a personal and hands on approach. Being a mum myself, l understand the pressures that pregnancy puts on the body which is why l am dedicated to teaching antenatal & post-natal Pilates and help others maintain a healthy pregnancy and speedy recovery. I teach Pilates classes at Saltdean Community Centre on Monday’s. Contact me on 07877878532 or tracystirzaker@hotmail.com for more information.

Diabetic Children’s Fund

Elizabeth - a diabetic from the age of three

45

Help to raise money for this local cause by having fun!

On 1�� October we are planning a live lounge at the White Horse Hotel in Rottingdean. Every year we try to raise funds for the Local Diabetic Childrens Fund. The fund is a useful method of gaining extra money to support the projects that consultant Dr.Shanka Kanumakala and his nurses have put in place in aiding our children’s care. From the money raised over the recent past he has been able to compile a database which acts as a coordination tool for all our children’s care. This requires constant updating and funding for this service to continue into the future. My daughter Elizabeth, a diabetic since the age of 3, has received nothing but excellent care from the tireless efforts of the children’s diabetic doctors and nurses. Whilst the level of care they currently provide is second to none, the extra money that the live lounge can provide can only ensure that the database will continue to grow. This year the event will be a Hot Buffet with live music from Soul Sensations, The Big Wheels Motown Revue band, with special guest vocalist Sonia Maz. Tickets will be available from The White Horse reception.

The Gallery not only gives an excellent show case and sales point to local artists, for a very reasonable charge, but it also helps maintain The Grange and support the continuation of the public library and computer room there. The work involves liaising with local artists, booking and hanging the varied exhibitions that last from 2 to 5 weeks at a time and organising publicity for these. For full details of what is involved contact RPS Chairman Valerie Whittle on 01273 305901 email:valerie.whittle3@googlemail.com or Vice Chairman Jean Talbot on 01273 300652 email: mjtalbot1@tiscali.co.uk

Sea Swim Fitness

Sea Swim Fitness

The Deans Magazine editor - Keith - recently joined Saltdean’s very own Sea Swimming Group for an early morning session… Regular readers of this magazine will remember that we introduced Sea Swim Fitness back in 2010. The group has been going from strength to strength in that time and now meet at least twice a week - Wednesday and Friday at 7am on the beach at Saltdean. I had been for several sessions with the group last year, but as soon as Autumn arrived I bailed! Not so the rest of the group they have been going all year round even organising an open swim for anyone brave enough on New Years Day. This went so well they are planning to run it again. The group is lead by Ollie Armfield a qualified swimming instructor and is made up of keen swimmers and triathletes in training. I would like to say there is a wide range of abilities but quite simply they are all top swimmers. I made it clear from the start that I had no intention of trying to keep up with the group. The majority don’t wear wet suits so to fit in I came along in just my swim suit, I was quite impressed with myself as I soon waded into the water and ducked my head under. Getting in up to your shoulders without a wetsuit is the minimum requirement to earn the right to buy one of the prestigious club swim hats so be prepared if you go along.

and my breath coming in ragged gasps as I did my best to keep up with his ‘easy’ pace. The reward is the feeling of swimming against the elements, and that when you walk back onto the beach you know you have achieved something before many have even had breakfast. On calm days you have a clear view of the sea bed and it is a beautiful experience. Sea swimmers rarely get colds or experience illness so there must be other health benefits to it too. There are often homemade cakes to savour as a beach breakfast is regularly part of the experience too! So do you have to be an expert swimmer to go along? No you can go along and join people like Joan who simply enjoys the water, but make no mistake she is not soft, being the only person I have met who can go into the sea whilst snow is on the ground in just a swim suit! The feeling of being part of a group is hugely reassuring especially when you are in potentially dangerous place like the sea. Best of all they are a friendly group who will welcome you and you soon find yourself getting hooked on the whole experience. Sea Swim Fitness website:

Ollie kindly (or so I thought) agreed to swim with me. I thought at first this was just to keep an eye on me and make sure I didn’t drown! However I quickly learned that he was not going to let me have an easy time of it and we were soon swimming between the buoys, my shoulders aching

Many swimmers start young! (children must be supervised by their parents)

Note the foot prints leading down to the sea, Brrrr!
