Where’s Gary the Gull


Thank you for all your entries, there were some beady eyes on the magazines in October! The winner of £20 for spotting each perch for Gary was Pauline Luxford. The same again this month, don’t forget look for more than one. Entries are welcomed by post and email. 26a South Farm Road, Worthing BN14 7AE

Inside Welcome

I am Liana Naylor, creator and editor of the Inside family of magazines from Worthing across to Lancing’s Widewater.

This month would have seen the firework display at the end of the pier. Crowds are clearly not safe now, so I asked Kevin Long if he could treat us to fireworks on the front cover instead. I love this image of Lancing College all lit up. You can see that I have started my journey to better health on p8. I have been very surprised at my increased energy levels and ability to move, so soon after changing my diet. I was eating healthily in many ways as I avoid processed foods, but I wasn’t eating what I needed. I’m not measuring my weight or getting hung up on following a diet, I am simply changing to meet the individual needs of my body in the hope that I can see a healthy and energetic future! Last month you all enjoyed reading about Matt’s passion for vacuum cleaners! Some of you even contacted him for support and repairs. This month, Helen Adams writes about sustainable fashion, it makes you think about the huge volume of clothes many of us have bought and discarded over the years, especially when you think about the story behind how those clothes became so affordable. There’s a proper nip in the air now…wrap up warm and enjoy the wonders of our Downs and seafront! Keep in touch!

Inside Gardening


for November

Brrr! Late autumn if not winter is now definitely upon us. It is the time of fireworks, dark early evenings, wind, rain, and possibly even frost. There are still jobs that need doing in the garden. We get those lovely crisp days of sunshine, when working in the garden is a pleasure (making returning back inside afterwards even more of a pleasure!). It is not too late to plant Tulips. It is often recommended that they are planted after the first frost and certainly when there is a chill in the air. But importantly don’t plant any bulbs when the soil is too wet. Last year, during our prolonged spells of very wet weather, many bulbs didn’t come up in the spring because they simply rotted in the earth. If you are planting in containers, make sure the pots are standing on feet or are raised in some way so that they have good drainage. It is worth considering wrapping any tender plants such as semihardy Fuchsias to protect them from cold. Fleece is available in all good garden centres, but bubble wrap will work just as well. If you have a greenhouse you can move plants in there. It is often assumed that Dahlias should be lifted and store somewhere dark and dry until replanting next year; but in our part of the country with a mild climate, so in many gardens I just cut back the dahlias leaving just a few inches showing and then cover them with

a mound of compost over the winter – they still return with a marvellous show of flowers the following summer. November is a great time to plant Roses – all the garden centres should have a good variety in stock or there are some marvellous specialists online. It is often thought that Roses should be pruned now, but ideally, they should be lightly cut back, ready for more severe pruning in the spring. Tall Roses especially should be trimmed to avoid damage by strong winds. Don’t forget to keep raking those leaves off the lawn. If you can leave a pile in the corner of the garden, they will provide insect food for birds and a possible hiding place for hedgehogs and frogs. Putting out regular bird food is much appreciated by our feathered friends and you can enjoy watching them visit from the warmth of your home.

Nic Naish Nutrition Let me introduce myself... my name is Nic Naish and in 2009 a diagnosis of breast cancer changed my career path – for the better! After a year of cancer treatment I knew I didn’t want to return to teaching. I instinctively ‘ate clean’ and exercised throughout my treatment. I was 40 and passionate to understand the science behind the success of my regime. Over the next 7 years I studied and re-trained; first in fitness instructing becoming a Level 4 Cancer Rehabilitation specialist, then a 3 year degree in Naturopathic Nutrition plus training as a DNA test practitioner. I launched Bandana Health and Fitness in 2015 in West Worthing – an holistic ‘one-stop-shop’ for the local community, using exercise, nutritional advice and a friendly supportive environment to help heal people. After an initial free consultation, I was delighted to start working with Liana for 3 reasons. We had established a rapport, she wanted a long term solution and not a quick fix and she was READY for change. We started the process with a DNA test that provided us with a clear path to head down.

Nic Naish

“Carbs” are one of the three macronutrients like protein and fat that we need in varying amounts to sustain our metabolism and energy levels. When we consume carbs, our digestive tract turns them into glucose, which is then burned to produce heat and adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is a molecule that stores and releases energy as needed by the cells in our body.

“Good Carbs” vs. “Bad Carbs” How do we tell the difference? The type of carbs we eat is important because the type dictates how the carbs respond in the body! Whole, unprocessed carbs are considered healthy carbs. (Eg. cabbage, potatoes, brown rice, beans, apples) All these foods have their nutrients intact and are minimally altered, safeguarding their nutritional value. Refined carbs have had the fibre removed and have been altered; the processing methods stripping away key vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. (Eg. fruit drinks, white rice and flour, pasta, pastry) 07780 546343 @bandanahealthandfitness

As with so many of my clients, the results highlighted a strong sensitivity to carbohydrates.

I chose to work with Nic, because I am ultimately a bit of a geek and need to believe in the science behind it. I also needed someone who would understand my time of life and the impact of hormones on my health. The DNA test gave us a great benchmark but has also stopped me needing to do things that fit other people, but are not relevant to me. It was an interesting experience which we will expand on over the weeks. So, the first surprise was “Carbs”. Nic explained how my liver processes carbs, which ultimately means that I don’t benefit from the energy release that some get, but I do store the glucose in an unhealthy way. Carbs were also causing inflammation. After just 2 days of cutting them out of my diet, I notices a reduction in back pain, my ankles were less swollen and I had a new level of energy. Now, 4 weeks on, I see cutting carbs out of my diet as an ongoing norm in my life. I have had a bit of birthday cake in that time, but that’s ok. Now I am steering my life away from type 2 diabetes.

We talk about Covid a lot at the moment; it’s a big part of our lives. When it was announced that the chances of dying from Covid were significantly greater if the person is overweight, and the whole country was urged to look at their health and lifestyles, I decided that it was time to look at a better way forward with my own health. I knew that if I shared my journey with you lot, it would put me under pressure to keep going! I am hoping that the off shoot from sharing it with you, will motivate others to consider their own health. I had a lot of response from my quest to find a personal trainer/nutritionist, many of them would be excellent, but I needed to choose one.


My journey to better health

I’m simply delighted at how sparkly clean my oven and hob look now! It really does look like the cooker is brand new again!

The value of advice Many of us will pay into one or more pensions over several decades, so understandably it can be tempting to throw the annual statements into the kitchen drawers as soon as they hit the doormat. However, getting regular pension advice has several important benefits, not least helping ensure that you take the right level of risk for your age and circumstances, and that you are not paying more than you need to in pension charges. Despite this, lots of people find it daunting seeking professional advice, and often just ‘hope for the best’, or opt to take a DIY approach. While a do-it-yourself approach may have surface appeal, research highlights it comes with significant risks. People who don’t seek advice may be overlooking fundamental elements of financial and tax planning. Worryingly, a staggering 80% of * research was carried out with 2000 consumers in July 2019 by Aegon.

people don’t have clear financial goals or know what they’re saving for as a result of not seeking advice. Professional financial planning helps you organise your money, so you have less stress and more success. It is crucial to ensure that when you reach your desired retirement age the advice does not stop there, if anything the need for advice when deciding how to take your benefits is more important and the tax consequences of not choosing the right method can be costly. For a no obligation financial consultation, please contact me and see if together we can help boost your pension pot or help you reach that desired retirement age sooner.

Inside Education

A stepping stone to

restart education Education has always been an integral part of my life. I attended the same school for 12 years, thriving in an environment where I felt safe and comfortable. Then, when I was 14, my world began to crumble. I had some friendship difficulties, my anxiety intensified, and my mental health began to deteriorate. I had always been happy at school, it was my safe place, but now it had become a living hell. I would spend the school day seeking the nearest exits, planning my escape route and willing home time to come around. I began purposely keeping myself awake at night as the less I slept, the slower the morning would arrive when I would have to go to school.

Despite my enthusiasm and drive for learning, the future of my education looked dire. I was ready to give up as there was little else that seemed available. I was left isolated and completely withdrawn from social interaction. I had no school, no friends and no hope for the future.

It got to the point where the anxiety was too much. I would hide under the bed, scream and cry and plead with my parents not to make me go. I began to miss days of school, which soon became weeks and after the Easter holidays, my team at the Children & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) decided that it was not in my best interest to return. My parents began frantically looking for a new school, believing that it was the establishment that was the problem.

That was when a family friend introduced us to the West Sussex Alternative Provision Centre (APC). Finally, after months of fear and uncertainty, we had a source of hope in the form of a unit specifically for students who were unable to receive mainstream education, not because they were excluded, had complex behavioural issues or were not interested in learning, but because they suffered from a crippling phobia of school.

In the autumn, I started year 10 at a new school and managed half a term before my mental health reached a new low and I was admitted to hospital. Once discharged, I was not able to return to mainstream school as it had become such a major fear that even a mention of the word would cause me intense anxiety.

In all honesty, I really do feel that West Sussex APC saved my life. I left with 9 GCSE’s and a group of friends and was able transition to a local mainstream college where I achieved 4 A-levels. I am now a university student and I love it. It feels like I’m making up for all those lost years when I should have been making friends and enjoying myself.

Inside Education

securing qualifications for the next stage of their lives. Red Balloon has 25 years of experience and has a 95% success rate of children returning to mainstream education, training or employment. There are five Learner Centres already established. We hope Worthing will be next.

A local mentor based in Worthing will be in contact, and will visit each child at home – at first this often means talking to the child through a closed door or from under the bed! They will support them while they do their online program, and gradually help them to leave the house, develop resilience and confidence. The medical APC I attended was closed down due to lack of funding shortly after I left in 2016, leaving no unit in West Sussex for children like me. Now, my father and I are working on a project in collaboration with Red Balloon to open a centre in Worthing for children who suffer severe anxiety, have been victims of bullying or experienced some other trauma in their lives. My hope is that I can enable children like me to access the same kind of provision that I was blessed with. Red Balloon Learner Centres are an alternative to school. Children receive a unique support programme which is 50% wellbeing and 50% academic focus. Centres usually have a capacity of 20 children, with small classes and a team of experienced teachers, mentors and therapists. The aim is to reconnect each child with their community, as well as

If you know of a child who would benefit from this kind of provision and can relate to my story, or if you feel you could help with our project, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please don’t ever feel like there is no hope. Everything will be okay in the end, and if it isn’t okay, it is not the end. I am living proof that you can overcome school anxiety and go on to achieve great things.

Inside Entertainment

I’ll be back to the cinema Worthing takes Shop Local to heart during the pandemic and Worthing’s local cinemas are ready to go! 2020 is a perilous time for cinemas. Distributors are afraid to release Blockbusters, fearing unfilled seats and people aren’t go to the cinema because there are no Blockbusters; creating a vicious cycle.

Big cinema chains have closed, or are opening part time but independents like us are holding out, so we at The Dome are optimistic. No cases of Covid have been linked to cinemas. The Dome Cinema has been open since early July welcoming thousands of guests through our doors since.

Our Safety Measures • Physical distancing with empty seats around each booking • Deep cleaning and sanitising between shows • Increased air flow • Staggered film times to reduce the number of people moving around the building. Face coverings must be worn around the building – but can be removed once seated to enjoy sweets, drinks, and popcorn.

The Dome has a great line-up to enjoy. There’s a full slate of halfterm family films (from Two By Two: Overboard to Wolfwalkers, The Secret Garden to Over The Moon), adrenaline-filled action hits (including Liam Neeson’s Honest Thief and zombie epic Peninsula), feel-good favourites (A Streetcat Named Bob sequel A Christmas Gift From Bob) and even a bit of singing (Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together)! You can also help by purchasing gift vouchers from The Dome that last 1 year, watch the urgent documentary We Are Many online through our website, and be sure to regularly check

LOCAL LIFE & BUSINESS Lancing Eagles Running Club is a local, friendly running club operating from Lancing Manor with over 100 members of all abilities who like to run together and have some fun. Whilst we were unable to run together as a group during lockdown, we ran challenges for our members to keep everyone motivated. We had great fun running around the local area, one time taking pictures of items of different colours, another completing a team challenge to run marathon distance (26.2 miles) over a week. Although all the challenges were remote and had us running solo, we used email and social media to share our exploits and enjoyed the camaraderie of a team challenge. We have recently restarted our club nights but they look a little different. We are still meeting at the Lancing Manor grounds on Wednesday evenings, but members need to book into a session in advance. We have created a Covid safe environment with a risk assessment, log of runners at each session and sociallydistanced running to ensure we keep everyone safe. We aim to have four groups each week, which cover all abilities with each one restricted to a qualified run leader and up to five runners. To date, 39 of our members have attended a session and this is growing each week. We have even had a couple of new members run with

As we cannot all run together in the way we are used to, we are still creating challenges for the club. One of our members set up a scarecrow hunt for us for September – you may have already seen some of us running around North Lancing seeking the 20 specific scarecrows! Then there is the Flight of the Eagles challenge, where we undertake three challenges to run different distances between now and the end of the year. We are currently planning the next team challenge which will be run over one week in October and is a bit different, in a bingo format to be undertaken by teams of four. The club has a “members-only” Facebook group which enables communication between club members and supplies encouragement to all, wherever they are in their running journey and whatever they are looking to achieve.

World of Widewater; now it’s access all areas By the time this issue of Inside Lancing and Sompting reaches your letterbox, the main pedestrian access to Widewater Local Nature Reserve from Brighton Road should be temporarily closed and the team from Landbuild should be hard at work delivering the brand new bridge to the reserve and to the beach. The signs on the Widewater said work was due to commence on 19 October though the news from West Sussex County Council was that it would start on 12 October. Regardless of the real start date, it was estimated, the bridge would be closed for 8 weeks. On their schedule, this means the lagoon should be open for a pre-lunch Christmas day walk – happy days! However – a word of caution; while the council is quoting an 8-week closure, Landbuild is estimating 15 weeks for the project finishing in early February 2021. The new footbridge will make the coastal nature reserve and Lancing’s beach more accessible for all. The existing timber bridge has, as we noted in last month’s article, degraded beyond repair. It will be replaced with one made from a special fibreglass material and with a slope that makes it more suitable for wheelchair users and young families with babies in prams and children in push chairs. The new bridge will be made from Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP). FRP is lighter

than alternative building materials, which means the new bridge can be constructed off-site and a small crane used to lift it into position. Ongoing costs are far cheaper, too, as there is no need for re-painting and the material does not rot. While the council says the bridge will be closed for 8 weeks, the reserve will, of course, remain accessible from the Shoreham Beach and Lancing Green ends of the promenade, the car park and the causeway over the western end of the lagoon. This means that we will still be able to enjoy autumn views such as that photographed at the end of September showing the beautiful autumn shades and colours created by a brilliant sunset, against a black and lowering sky to sea. There is no doubt that nature is the most wonderful artist of all with its outrageous palette of colours. A county council spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience during these essential works but the long-term benefits include improving accessibility for people to experience this wildlife haven and the beach.” For those less familiar with it, Widewater Lagoon is an area of brackish water, landlocked by a man-made shingle bank. It is home to herons, swans, geese and many other wildfowl as well as being home to a variety of flora, some of which are unique to the area.

The project is estimated to cost about £300,000 and is being funded through developer contributions (Section 106 funds), with Adur District Council providing £103,000 of the Section 106 funds. The work does mean that a lagoon walk planned for October, to match historic photographs of the lagoon and its structures to the site as it is today, had to be postponed. When it is reinstated next year, perhaps it will be accessible to more people than it had been with the old crumbling and decrepit bridge.

Despite our usual calendar of activities being hindered by pandemic restrictions, we would love residents who have found the Widewater over the last few months to come and join us in World of Widewater.

Inside Community

Men in sheds Men in Sheds Lancing and Sompting began in 2015 to “challenge isolation and loneliness”, mostly in older men. Members are “Shedders”. The youngest is in their 20s, the oldest, their 80s. Ladies are welcomed despite the brand-name!

It is a safe space for chatting, meeting friends and, for those who wish to, use tools to make items for themselves, to sell at events or items for our community projects. We can teach and learn those skills too. The Shed was given to us by the late Howard Attwater. Howard’s partner, Julie continues to welcome us. We pay a “peppercorn” rent and cover the energy and insurance costs. There is an impressive array of tools, storage, benches and tables, a fridge… and a kettle! We reach out, have had stalls at Lancing Village Market and visited local groups. We have become regulars at the AGM of The Friends of Lancing Ring and at Summer and Christmas events at Emmaus, where we are gifted wood for projects. Local Sea

Scouts and other groups invite us in to have bird/bug box making sessions. We have made items for playgroups, built Owl boxes for Lancing Ring and repaired and installed benches at a local Sheltered Housing complex.

Our project has attracted funders/ supporters such as Lancing Parish Council, West Sussex County Council, Royal Voluntary Service Lancing, Asda, Adur and Worthing Council, Lancing and Sompting Lions Club, Sussex Police, Gardner and Scardifield, Paula Rosa/Manhattan Lancing, Southern Water and Recycling in Lancing. We have had donations from individuals and families too. We thank them all!

A space in Manor Park was offered to us by Adur District Council and, this year, we signed the lease for the buildings, having got approval to turn them into a workshop and a storage area. Although not listed buildings, they have heritage value and restoration by us will focus on that. A totally new electric system is going in, work undertaken by Shedder Martin, a retired electrician. Benches and

working areas will be slid into what were animal stalls. To ensure access for all, permanent ramps and rails have been installed. Much of the wood used is gifted by our supporters. We have bought a Portaloo with washing facilities. Costs are covered from our own resources (we built up a war chest over 18 months) and generous funding after successful bids in 2020. This funding is further recognition of our project, what we have done so far and what we plan to do in the future. We thank the Officer at Adur and our local Councillor, Carson Albury for their help and support throughout. Our second Shed will be opening in 2021. As the new Shed comes on stream, it will allow us to use our original one much more as that “safe space”. We recognise

Inside Community

Social outings are organised using car sharing or public transport. We also join together for a Christmas meal.

COVID has cast a large shadow over us. We have tried various ways to keep in touch, email, telephone, our own chatline and tried some meetings in our local park during the summer. Nothing replaces being together. In October, we are starting to meet under “the rule of six”. There is a waiting list but we encourage you to apply as we will be able to take on more members soon. Membership is £25 per year and we encourage a small donation each time a Shedder visits. We are not a business, we cover our overheads from donations for items we make such as the planters, bug hotels, animal houses and the like. Shed Manager, Frank King says “COVID has put a temporary hold on what we do but we are trying to get back together again. The new Shed has given a lift to us all at a difficult time and will be a great addition. We anticipate increased demand for membership and our community projects. A Shed in Sompting is also very much on our Agenda” We welcome messages, offers and enquiries.
