Inside Welcome

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

Welcome! When we think of November, we think of light in the dark with fireworks and bonfires. So, although the festival of light has been traditionally held in September in Worthing, I felt that this image that I took myself of local artist Rebecca McCardle’s installation in 2018 from her “Cluster” project was fitting for the front cover. You can see that I have started my journey to better health on p8. I have been 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, Durrington resident, 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.

“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.

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. 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.

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.

What are the benefits of having a spa day or using spa facilities? There is a whole host of mental and physical benefits that you can get from a visit to the spa. By visiting a spa regularly, you can effectively jumpstart a healthy lifestyle. Here is a list some of the best reasons. 1. Relaxation and Stress Management Using a spa can greatly aid your relaxation. Simply sitting in a jacuzzi, steam shower or sauna is a huge stress reliever.


2. Detox Our environment is full of harmful toxins, impacting us physically and mentally. Spas aid detoxification by effectively removing toxins and excess fluid. 3. Improved Self Esteem and Confidence Taking adequate time to pamper yourself and to taking good care of your body and mind can greatly improve your self-esteem. 4. Manage Pain Visiting a spa can give pain relief from conditions such as arthritis and nerve problems. 5.

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.

Initially, children who need this support will start on Red Balloon of the Air, which is live, timetabled, online learning, with teachers and therapists presenting remotely.

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.

How sustainable is

your wardrobe?

Helen Adams

Hi I’m Helen, a Fashion Technician at Brighton MET and a student working towards a Masters Degree in Sustainable Design with a focus on the Fashion and Textile Industry. I recently launched a circular clothing label (more details later!) The fashion and textile industry is reported to be amongst the most polluting industries in the world. Here are some facts to put this into perspective: • Around 70 million trees are cut down a YEAR to make our clothes • 1 full dump truck of clothes goes into landfill EVERY second. • 23% of all chemicals produced round the world are used for the textile industry • 90% of Mongolia’s surface is facing the threat of desertification due to the breeding of cashmere goats • Approximately 260-300 million pairs of denim jeans are produced in China alone PER YEAR • It takes on average 10,000 litres of water to cultivate just one kilogram of raw cotton (which is used to make denim)

This regular feature will be exploring how we can create and maintain a more sustainable wardrobe and do our bit to combat the damage this industry does to our planet and the people on it. When we talk about sustainable fashion, you may also hear people refer to Ethical Fashion, Slow Fashion and Circular Fashion. These terms are becoming more common, so let’s look at the difference between them and really understand where we need to be heading when choosing our clothes. Sustainable Fashion This is the umbrella term for all the other terms, but if we look at it in its own right, sustainable fashion refers to how the production and waste of fashion and textiles effects the environment and the planet. It refers to the environmental costs of production, including the use of pesticides, dyeing and finishing, water and waste treatment, energy reduction, material choice, and packaging.

Taken from ‘Sustainable Fashion and Textiles’ by Kate Fletcher

“ Clothes are not going to change the world, the women who wear them will”

Anne Klein, Fashion designer.

Stella McCartney

Ethical Fashion The word “ethical” is associated with human rights and the morals of manufacturing. Ethical fashion refers to how garments are made; from how the cotton was grown; how workers are treated and paid to who packages and delivers the products. If a product is “ethically made,” it means there was no sweatshop labour, child labour, worker abuse, discrimination, or slavery. It also means that workers received fair pay, had the right to unionise, and worked in safe conditions. We can look at the 10 principles of fair trade to get an idea what is involved in Ethical Fashion. If you are buying a dress for under £10, it is not possible for this to cover the material, the wages, or the cost of shipping. Wages for the staff of the UK company who post it out to you also need to be covered. As the UK has strict laws regarding wages, and shipping and material costs are generally nonnegotiable, it is likely that person who made your dress was paid very little and working long hours in unsafe conditions.

“ Buy less. Choose well. Make it last”

Vivienne Westwood

Slow Fashion Fast fashion refers to the ever-changing trends of the fashion industry. Cheap retailers push out trends at a low price we can afford to buy, wear, throw, and move on to the next trend without a thought. This has increased with the explosion of internet shopping. Online clothes retailers are able to design, make and photograph a new trend every day compared to the traditional way of introducing a collection each season.

Inside Your Environment

“ The future of fashion is circular. It has to be.”

The increasing volume of clothing purchased and discarded in the past few decades is hopefully taking a U turn. This is where the term ‘Slow Fashion’ was coined. Moving away from fast fashion and chasing trends, to creating pieces that will last, in style and in quality. Slow fashion promotes taking care of our clothes, wearing them time and time again, and getting the most out of every piece. Circular Fashion A circular fashion industry is defined as a regenerative system in which garments are circulated for as long as their maximum value is retained, and then returned safely to the biosphere when they are no longer of use. In essence, we circulate what we already have for as long as possible, donating, upcycling or recycling, to minimise the production of new materials. Now we are more familiar with the terms that make up a more positive fashion and textile industry, I’ll look forward to exploring ways in which we can all create a more sustainable, ethical and circular wardrobe!  01903 357003


Wild Inside

Wild about Adur & Worthing

green spaces

Dr Barbara Pilley Shaw

Wild November spotlights Nature – RECYCLING! Deciduous trees help regenerate soils by adding organic matter through the vivid annual autumn leaf drop. blog/2020/10/why-autumn-leaveschange-colour/ Leaf litter decomposes forming nutrient-rich leaf mould, a really wild compost seedbed for next spring’s germinating wildflowers. Allotmenteers turn to soil, ready for next year’s saplings, veg and herbaceous crops. Soil composition depends on underlying geology or ‘minerals’ and the organic matter generated by the wildlife within it. Sussex soils vary greatly from Downs to Weald and from valleys to coast. Poor-draining acidic clay deposits, riverine soils full of pebbles, flints, fossils, and sometimes archaeology, are a feature of Worthing & Adur.

In green places it’s a busy time raking fallen leaves and clearing vegetation from plots ready for next season’s sowing and growing. Heaped dead material is invaded by an army of wildlife, kick-starting processes that will turn it into rich productive compost. Decomposers, billions of bacteria and fungi (moulds, slime-moulds and toadstools) get rotting. Detrivores, hungry herbivorous invertebrates such as insects, woodlice, millipedes and wonderful worms, get to work alongside. Clearing plots isn’t always straightforward. Some of the abundant natural detritus may harbour diseases that threaten native tree species, or house overwintering pests that could seriously impact orchard yields. National Trust reports 40,000 trees face felling after a surge in Ash Dieback, and vagaries of weather due to Climate Change saw an increase in orchard fruit drop as water stressed apples succumbed to Brown Rot and a second generation of Codling Moth.

Diseased material needs careful disposal. Sealing it to rot in compressed plastic bags allows it to break down anaerobically before adding it safely to compost heaps. Adur & Worthing Councils https://www. household collection service provides a green bin by annual subscription or £1.25 waste sacks available from listed retailers. Green waste goes to Opus, a company that composts and peak heats it to destroy harmful disease organisms. The graded product is then sold through local landscape suppliers. FIRE – control of pests through bonfires in orchards and the burning of cereal stubble, was once commonplace. Loss of control plus damage to soil structure and symbiotic Micorrhiza fungi that nurture plant roots has reduced this practice. Burning wood generates carcinogenic smoke that threatens human health. Globally in New South Wales forest fires are a climate issue too hot to handle with habitat loss threatening extinction of iconic Koala bears. Recent local fires in Ashdown and Wareham Forests have impacted on rare heathland reptiles, snakes and lizards. So whilst enjoying the historic cultural spectacle of a November 5th bonfire and the mouth-watering fun of baked potatoes and roast chestnuts – we ‘guys’ need to take care that our cherished domestic pets and precious garden wildlife aren’t scared witless! And… to watch out for hedgehogs hiding in the wood pile!

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.

Inside Entertainment

I’ll be back to the cinema

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  01903 357003


Inside Volunteering

Five benefits of volunteering

Hello and welcome to Inside Volunteering – a new feature from Community Works Volunteer Centre. Community Works is a charity connecting community organisations, people and businesses to build a better community for everyone. Every year, our Volunteer Centre helps hundreds of local people find a rewarding volunteer role. I’m Carole Claridge, the Volunteering Adviser for Worthing & Adur and a volunteer myself! If you’ve thought about volunteering but don’t know where to start – get in touch, I’d love to help.

“I enjoy it”, was the simple response of 93% of volunteers surveyed by the NCVO in 2019 when asked what they got out of volunteering. That’s great to hear. However, enjoyment is just one of the many benefits of volunteering. Here are five more to inspire you…

Carole Claridge Volunteering Adviser

1. Helping others. The reason behind most people’s decision to volunteer, is the positive impact it has on someone else’s life and on the community. Whether you’re serving food in a homeless shelter, befriending the vulnerable through regular phone calls, assisting with administration at a community food bank, or mentoring a young person, your actions have a direct positive effect on someone, in addition to supporting the work of charities and strengthening the local community.

2. The feel-good factor. In 2008 The London School of Economics discovered that volunteering contributes to levels of happiness: the more people volunteer, the happier they are. Why? It’s the feel-good factor. Volunteers feel they are making a difference, they have a sense of purpose and are making meaningful connections: this increases feelings of selfworth and boosts self-esteem. Sam, a volunteer trustee for Home-Start Arun, Worthing and Adur agrees. “I always suffered from a lack of self-esteem and ‘Imposter Syndrome’. However, being a trustee has boosted my confidence. It’s an environment in which I can share my knowledge and witness a positive effect, which in turn gives me the confidence that I am good at what I do.”

3. Physical benefits. Various studies show that people who regularly volunteer are also less likely to develop high blood pressure – the reduced stress levels will help with this – and actually live longer than non-volunteers.

4. Boost your career prospects. Whether you’re just beginning your career journey or have been working for several years, volunteering looks great on your CV. It’s an excellent way to stand out in a competitive job market. It can offer valuable work experience if you’re looking to enter a specific industry or switch careers. Volunteering can help develop your communication and teamwork skills and show potential employers that you can be pro-active, use your own initiative and have a sense of altruism and commitment.

5. Meet new people. 89% of volunteers surveyed for the 2019 NCVO ‘Time Well Spent’ report said they had met new people through volunteering. It’s a great – and fun – way to meet people from different backgrounds and ages that you may not have otherwise interacted with. If you feel isolated or lonely, volunteering offers a sense of community, and if you volunteer for a cause that you’re passionate about, you’re likely to meet likeminded people with similar interests.

Inside Volunteering

Many studies reveal a positive link between volunteering and improved mental health: confirming that volunteering can help reduce stress, anxiety, and combat depression.

Our Volunteering Adviser, Carole Claridge, enjoys meeting people. She says, “I wanted a role that gave me the opportunity to meet a wide range of people and made me feel connected to my local area.”
