Inside Welcome

I am Liana, creator and editor of the Inside family of magazines covering Broadwater, Tarring, Durrington, Worthing, West Worthing and Goring.

Welcome to May! Your community magazine has changed names as we bring the distribution across the centre of town. So welcome to Inside Worthing! There are a lot of exciting things happening around Worthing as we rise up from lock-down. Read about the pop up hub planned for Level 1 at Grafton car park on p28. This month we have a feature on an initiative from West Sussex Mind. The centre spread is a pull-out kite that forms part of their Moving Minds Campaign. The focus of the campaign is to think and talk about moving from the confines of lockdown back into the community and community buildings. The first step for many is to build confidence to leave the house, to go outside and be around other people and feel okay. A kite as a symbol crosses all cultures and diversities. We are hoping that you will all pull your kite out and put it up in your window to show solidarity with your community. Grab yourself a coffee (or favourite drink) and have a good read. You can join Inside Magazines on social media @InsideMagazines @InsideCommunityMagazines #insidemagazines.

War Graves Week

comes to Worthing

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is running its first ever War Graves Week this year. Running from the 21-28 May 2021, the week will shine a light on our work and the people who keep remembrance of our war dead alive.

Through a series of talks, tours and events, both physical and virtual, War Graves Week will bring an immersive and inclusive programme that will reveal CWGC’s work and history in all its variety and demonstrate its ongoing relevance today. In Worthing on Friday 28th May, Sarah Nathaniel, the Public Engagement Coordinator for the South East, will be running tours at Broadwater & Worthing Cemetery throughout the day. Home to around 80 war graves and memorials from both world wars, there are some fascinating stories about the men and women commemorated there to be shared.

Halloumilicious

The best halloumi bites in town

Have you sampled the cheesy delights of Halloumilicious yet? Found at 5 Warwick Lane in the centre of Worthing (BN11 3DP), Halloumilicious is looking forward to the Covid restrictions lifting. Owner Joel Ariaman was born in Brighton and moved to Worthing in 2016.

An idea sparked soon after his move to Worthing to offer something different and to have a whole menu dedicated to Halloumi... a semi-hard unripened cheese made from goat’s and sheep’s milk. 2017 saw the offer of Halloumi Fries to street food markets, festivals and pop ups at local cafés, restaurants and pubs. Then the first street kitchen was opened in October 2019 in Warwick Lane, serving Halloumi Fries, Halloumi Wraps, Halloumi Bagels and Burgers. They also have our their very own Gelato – Halloumi, Pistachio & Bakalava! Halloumi is a popular meat alternative for BBQs, however, a lot of Halloumilicious customers are meat eaters who want something a little different as a lunch or dinner option. Joel says, “We have been very well received in Worthing and are grateful for all our customers. We have been open during lockdown offering takeaway and gave 100 items on our menu to NHS Worthing.” New for the summer are seating booths outside the street kitchen with heaters.

Opening times Tuesday – Friday 12:00-3:00pm/ 5:00-8:00pm, Saturday 12:00-8:00pm (check their social media for summer opening times).

Orders can be made using Just-eat, Deliveroo and Uber Eats and customers have the option to collect their orders themselves. Find and follow Halloumiliscious on Instagram and Facebook @halloumilicious www.insidemagazines.community  01903 357003

£32 million paid in grants to Worthing Businesses

as they plan to fully open up for Summer

The last 12 months have been especially hard for our non-essential traders, restaurants and pubs alike. Gradually things are easing and since mid-April we’ve been able to visit those shops or enjoy a meal or a drink whilst seated ‘outside’, but I’m sure there will be many of us who are yearning to be able to sit inside a restaurant and enjoy a meal or stand at the bar and have a drink. Kevin Jenkins is a local councillor. In his role he has oversight of a wide portfolio including the economy, regeneration, foreshore, tourism and planning. kevin.jenkins@worthing.gov.uk

Just getting back to some of those familiar behaviours will give us the reassurance that things are gradually getting back to near what we all remember. It may be some time yet before social distancing fully eases and we can relax our ‘Hands-Face-Space’. During the last year, our businesses have been supported by a series of government grants. This money was first sent to Worthing Borough Council to administer. As with many of the Covid events, this happened with little notice and meant that the staff in the council’s Place and Economy team together with the support of many other colleagues from across the council services had to swing into action overnight to create an online application process. To their credit they achieved this in a matter of a few weeks and since that time have been administering different schemes. To date they have issued grants of over £32 million pounds to help support local businesses in Worthing. From April 2021 businesses in the non-essential retail, hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care or gym sectors were able to apply for the next round of grants

hardest hit by the impact of the pandemic. This can put them on the first rung of their career ladder. Worthing Council, with its Adur neighbours, embraced this opportunity and has established an ambitious local Kickstart scheme for 45 young people with placements across a wide range of the council’s services. called Restart. The closing date for applications is the 30th June 2021. Other businesses may be able to apply for the Additional Restriction Grant – Round 5. If you’re a local business, have a look to see if you qualify. Full details here: www.adurworthing.gov.uk/coronavirus/ business-support/#arg Further support is being offered to 16-24 year olds on Universal credit, who are at risk of long term unemployment through the Governments funded Kickstart scheme. Creating job placements for 25 hours per week for 6 months, paid at national minimum wage, it aims to put young people who have been some of the

Full details can be found here: www.adur-worthing.gov.uk/ businesses/support-and-funding/ apprentices-and-furthereducation/#kickstart-scheme The last year has demonstrated that many of our businesses have shown great adaptability and have learnt to operate in a Covid environment. Others have struggled and without the grant support may not have made it through the year. Let’s hope, as we move along the road map and restrictions ease, these businesses can open up and get going again. As they do, I would encourage everyone, whenever they can, to shop local, buy local and support your local businesses. Without you they will not survive.

Goring Manor Bowls Club Goring Manor Bowls Club is a mixed lawn bowls club playing at Field Place in Goring. Previously two clubs played at Field Place, namely West Tarring and Field Place Bowls clubs. In 2015, the two clubs merged and took the name Goring Manor Bowls Club from the name of the manor house which stands at the centre of Field Place.

When this article is published, we will have started playing bowls again. After 12 months of lockdown, we welcome being able to get out into the fresh air, have a little light exercise and start socialising with other people. I can think of no better way to do this than to play lawn green bowls. It is an excellent activity especially as part of a club. Goring Manor Bowls Club is said to be one of the friendliest bowls clubs in Worthing if not in the whole of West Sussex. It is a mixed club with a membership of about 70, which is small enough for everyone to know each other but large enough for us to have the strength to enter teams into the strongest local leagues. We play bowls at a number of levels. From friendly roll-ups, where we just get together to roll a few woods and have a bit of banter on the green to competing in the top division of the West Sussex Bowls League – undoubtedly the strongest bowls league in West Sussex. In between those two levels of play we have club days

which pit teams within the club against one another. We also have competitions such as the club championship for singles, pairs or triples. There are friendly matches home and away against other local clubs in and around Worthing. Other friendly matches find us travelling as far as Hove, Crawley, Horsham, Midhurst, Lewes and Hurstpierpoint to name but a few. The club also competes in other local leagues such the Stracey Shield which is based in and around Worthing. This is a strong competitive mixed league (women and men), which I am proud to say that Goring Manor are current Shield holders. There is also the Brodie Tray, another Worthing and District League, which is essentially for those players who might not make it into the West Sussex League or Stracey teams. So, there is a level of competition which suits every standard of player. We also offer a coaching and mentoring service for new players. Quite often people who join the club just for casual play and perhaps to

10 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

increase their social contact, find themselves to have a greater level of skill than they imagined and end up playing at the top level of local leagues. And in addition to all those bowls-based activities, we have challenge matches with our neighbouring Croquet Club, where we play each other at our respective disciplines – a real fun day. We also have social events such as a quiz evening. If YOU are interested in playing at Goring Manor Bowls Club, whether you are an experience player looking for a new club or someone who would like to try their hand at bowls, then ring me, Derek King, (Club Captain) on 07979 603826 or Chris Wood, (Club Chair) on 07516 521195 to arrange to have a go. No equipment needed, just a pair of flat-bottomed shoes. More details of the club can be found on the club’s website which can be found at www.goringmanorbc.co.uk

Artists invited to exhibit at the

Seafront Gallery in Worthing

Artists are being offered the opportunity to showcase their work to thousands of visitors to Worthing seafront as expressions of interest to exhibit at the spectacular Seafront Gallery are invited.

To give a boost to the local art industry as the country moves out of lockdown, Worthing Borough Council with support from the team at the creative hub Colonnade House, is offering the exhibition space with no hire fee throughout 2021. The outdoor gallery features five stone-filled gabion plinths and is situated a short walk west of Worthing Pier on the promenade - an area which attracts a high footfall throughout the year. It is an increasingly popular destination for residents and visitors to the seaside town with its wide range of pop-up food and drink traders and seasonal attractions. The art gallery was built last year to host the Photo Fringe Open Solo Award winner and shortlist of 19 contemporary, international photographers from the festival launch in October 2020. It is one of a number of outdoor art exhibition spaces in Worthing, which includes the Pier and two of the seafront shelters,

designed to make art accessible to everyone and safe to enjoy during the pandemic. Proposals are now invited for future exhibitions at The Seafront Gallery, which has 20 display surfaces across the five plinths and is accessible via a beachside path as well as the promenade. Hire periods will be for four to six months. Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Customer Services, Dr Heather Mercer said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer, for free, this fantastic gallery space, as a continuation of our efforts to support local businesses to bounce back from the impact of the COVID pandemic. “The Seafront Gallery has been a very much-welcomed and interesting addition to our seafront and offers a great opportunity to host public exhibitions and reach large numbers of people.”

Health & Wellbeing Inside Your Town

Worthing’s Health Hub Construction on Worthing’s new multi-million pound integrated health hub will soon begin. Work on Worthing’s new, integrated health care facility in the heart of the town is set to begin this Summer. It will be the first of its type in Worthing and will deliver significant care benefits for the local community with GP, community, mental health and pharmacy services under one roof. The site, owned by Worthing Borough Council, has been considered as an under-utilised key brownfield development site. The development will enable integrated working between different NHS partners by significantly improving their

accommodation, which is dispersed throughout the town. The proposed development would bring together Coastal West Sussex CCG, Worthing Medical Group, Sussex Community Foundation Trust, and Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust services into one integrated health care facility in the heart of Worthing. Plans for an accompanying multi-storey car park have also been approved. It will be sixstoreys high – accommodating for 186 vehicles and 36 bicycles. A further 28 cycle bays will be made available as part of the WICC development. Construction on the project is expected to start in the Summer this year and finish in the Spring of 2023.

16 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

Despite the impacts the COVID pandemic has had on the progression of the care centre, considerable work has been undertaken on the project. A spokesman for Worthing Borough Council said: “We’re pleased to be working with partners on bringing forward the Worthing Integrated Care Centre and we’re confident work will begin this summer. “The facilities will improve the way residents receive care for many years to come – something we know will be very much welcomed by all.”


Sun Aware?

Lockdown restrictions are easing and bit by bit, jab by jab, we will soon be spending much more of our time outside. Here in West Sussex, which has a strong claim to be the sunniest part of the UK, we need to be aware of the damage that strong sunlight can do to skin that has been stuck inside for so long. Working as a Pharmacist, I have seen many patients come in with their skin bright red from sun burn to seek help, usually in the spring when they think that the sun is not strong enough to do any damage. Over-exposure can cause serious damage, including melanoma, which is a dangerous skin cancer. This is reason enough to look after your skin, stay in the shade and be safe in the sun.

Inside Health & Wellbeing

Thousands of residents benefit from ‘Going Local’ scheme

Thousands of Adur & Worthing residents benefit from ‘Going Local’ scheme More than 2,300 residents of Adur and Worthing received help with their social, emotional and practical needs from Going Local – a social prescribing scheme – in 2020. The community referral scheme, which was launched in 2016, is delivered by Adur & Worthing Councils. It helps to improve the wellbeing of people with non-medical problems which might be impacting on their health. This includes supporting people with housing and financial issues or helping them to discover new interests. The numbers referred have more than doubled since the previous year, mainly due to more people needing help during the COVID pandemic. Previously run as a referral only service from GPs and other health professionals, residents can now refer themselves directly to the scheme. The social prescribers work with residents to identify the issues they need help with, signposting them to local partner organisations or relevant Council departments for support. In the past year, the team has helped people with financial worries, housing needs, loneliness and support with their mental health. For example, an elderly couple in poor health were being evicted from their rented accommodation. They were referred for housing support and

given help to access benefits. Another resident with serious health issues and depression was given help with financial issues that were contributing to his condition and signposted to MIND for mental health support. Responding to the COVID pandemic, the Going Local team established the Councils’ Community Response in March 2020 to meet the needs of residents. This included providing emergency food provision to hundreds of people in need. The team of six social prescribers work closely with all GP practices in Adur and Worthing to support the COVID vaccination effort. Looking ahead, a volunteer programme is being developed to enable the scheme to increase its support to the community. Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Health & Wellbeing,

Cllr Kevin Boram, said: “When there are things we feel anxious about, it can have a knock on effect on our physical and mental health. The Going Local scheme has allowed us to take a more holistic approach to supporting our communities, working with residents to tackle any underlying issues and prevent them from becoming more complex.” Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Health & Wellbeing, Cllr Val Turner, said: “The Going Local team has had to adapt rapidly in response to pandemic to meet the changing needs of the local community. Through social prescribing and by working in partnership with the primary care services and local organisations, we are able to address the impact of COVID on individuals’ lives.”

Moving Minds Campaign 2021 Moving Minds

Moving Minds together we rise ‘Open Minds’ is a project run by West Sussex Mind. It focuses on anti-stigma and mental health awareness raising in the community. As with all projects at West Sussex Mind, Open Minds is service-user led. We developed the ideas for the campaign, based on the insight and creativity of the champions involved. Mental Health Awareness Week is a high-profile national campaign. This year the theme is Nature and locally we want to use the theme to move back into our community, connect and find support for better mental health. We know that many people have been struggling with their mental health and many for the first time. We want to make sure that people know where to get support and moreover ensure that stigma does not prevent people from getting that support. Our campaign will launch on the 1 May and lead into Mental Health Awareness week 10-16 May but will continue until the 31 May with activities. We will be settling into Colonnade House Week Beginning the 17 May and will show our photographic stories of Champions from diverse communities all who have a personal story to share about their mental health recovery and journey. Portraits and words will raise awareness about mental health, and encourage people to seek support by describing how actions can really help both the individual and the community as a whole.

Every year we pick an activity to provoke conversations in an engaging way. This year our Moving Minds campaign hopes to capture movement not only in the physical sense but in the sense of a movement and a call to action. We want to use the idea of kites and kite flying to express this diversity and also as a display of unity. Kites are a wonderfully diverse and cultural art form – they are flown, displayed and celebrated in many different parts of the world for many different reasons. They are also a fun, engaging and a mindful activity. Kites can be a tool for transition out of our homes into open spaces. A kite can fail to fly many times due to the conditions but the joy of a moment of flight can be a wonderful reward and be so uplifting. We are using this metaphor and our message is Moving Minds Together We Rise.

Pull out your free poster and display it in your window to show that our local community is right behind those experiencing poor mental – show people they are not alone. Take a look at our website www.westsussexmind.org where there is lots of information, videos and free training to be better informed about mental health. Read Keira’s poem on page 22 and then ask yourself “what you will do for your own mental health and those you know”. Come along to Colonnade House in central Worthing during the Week of 17 May and see our Lego Robot RU OK x3, photographic exhibition and of course come and make and fly a kite. Join us for our big sea dip – date to be confirmed.

Moving Minds by Keira Thomas

Open Minds Champion

Laying delicately on the grass, vulnerable to the eye,

Surrounded by beauty and nature, feeling the lows with the highs.

Splashes of bright colours, combined with layers of depth, Underneath the surface lies powerful feelings kept.

Struggling some days to lift from the ground,

Finding a listening ear to hear your spoken sound. Thoughts swirling around, overtaking one’s mind,

Seeking comfort in us is something you can find.

A welcoming community, with values of care and kindness, Believing a struggle shared can help make the struggle less. Strong feelings spiralling with gusts of wind and rain, Withholding the storm – new skills and resilience gained.

Awareness of looking after your Mental Health, Knowing self-care and positivity is truly that of wealth.

Understanding and knowledge of what you’re going through, Others relating to your journey and experiences too.

Awakening emotions of relief and feeling free, Realisation of living a life fulfilled and happily.

Within varied backgrounds and identities, Mental Health exists,

Acceptance and support – we whole-heartedly offer this. Mental Health leads to stories significant to our cause,

Individual and unique, we invite you to share yours.

Opening minds as you soar through the sky, Preconceptions and judgements – it’s time to say goodbye. As seasons do change, growth of mindset follows suit, Nurturing seeds daily to encourage grounded roots.

Wellbeing is the foundation of change, kindness and time, Now pause. to ask yourself…what inspires and moves your mind?! 22 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

Sourdough Sandwich Bar Following the feature last month in Inside Magazines about Sourdough Sandwich Bar, it has been noted that the location was omitted from the article. To turn a negative into a positive, we were inundated with calls and emails asking where to find it. Owner Gurol Ozkalafat reported that after only 2 days of the 9 days distribution period for Inside Magazines, he had 11 new customers already… even without the address being published! I just wanted to share with you all that one of the callers asking for the address was an elderly man in Durrington, I believe he

said that he is 83. The last year has been a particularly lonely time for our elderly residents. The caller informed me that the phone call to me was one of only a few conversations he had had throughout the year, and that he wanted the Sourdough Sandwich Bar to be his first trip out on the bus! So for those of you who haven’t tried Sourdough out yet, it can be found opposite the Town Hall at 80 Chapel Road, Worthing, BN11 1BN. *Goring readers the article can be found in any of the April editions of Inside Magazines at www.insidemagazines.community

Worthing Samaritans

target local mental health

Over the coming weeks, volunteers from Worthing Samaritans will be dropping leaflets through letterboxes in Worthing, in a new focus on mental health. It is known that having a mental health condition is a risk factor for suicide, and Samaritans has seen an increase in concerns about mental health among callers compared to the same time last year, with almost half of callers mentioning mental health concerns.

Samaritans want to highlight the support they offer to callers and those who email. Samaritans say that it is still too soon to know whether the pandemic has affected suicide rates and that a rise is not inevitable. However, it is hoped that simply raising awareness of the help available in Worthing will encourage people to seek support.

Samaritans’ vision is that “fewer people die by suicide”, and Worthing

Worthing Samaritans’ Director, Anne Copeland, says “our volunteers have continued to be available to callers throughout the pandemic, and as restrictions begin to ease, we hope people will keep our number to hand, and call us when they need us. So, when a leaflet drops on to your mat, keep it, and don’t hesitate to call or email.”

Calling Worthing Samaritans is free on 116 123. You can also email jo@samaritans.org

Making

Memories

Is anyone as excited as me about the prospect of being able to plan holidays again from this month? As we await May 17th, with all being well, my mind has turned to where I would return to from all the places I have travelled to over the years. I found myself thinking about a road trip I took with my friend when we were just 21. She was living in Amsterdam and I was working at Gatwick Airport. The summer was passing and both of us were yearning for a holiday, so we decided to take ourselves off to California for 3 weeks and have a little adventure. We didn’t really plan where or how we would travel, but we knew we wanted to visit the places we had seen on TV and dreamed about; Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and lots of other towns that we had heard about. We were a little naive but had no fear, so we arrived at Los Angeles Airport, hired a Camaro sportscar, and headed towards Anaheim which is where Disneyland California and other theme parks are found. The weather was perfect, blue skies and sunny days

and we truly were loving being “California Girls”. We visited the beaches at Huntington, hanging out with the surfers; Venice Beach, watching the body builders and skateboarders as well as Santa Monica to watch the sunsets. Of course, we spent time in Hollywood and Beverly Hills too. It truly did feel “cool” to be there. We then headed north up Highway 1, which is a long rugged coastal road, winding through Santa Monica, Malibu, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Carmel by the Sea and more. We stayed in small motels and ate at local restaurants, visiting the famous landmarks along the way and ending up in San Francisco. It really is easy to leave your heart there! We had fun visiting Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz, The Golden Gate Bridge, meeting locals who in those days were fascinated by us. I can’t remember how many times we

heard “Oh, I just love your accent, are you Australian?” It made us laugh out loud every time! Our days were running out, so we took the faster route Interstate 5 back down to LA and on towards San Diego. We visited the famous Zoo, Sea World, Tijuana, La Jolla and then back to LA, to the beaches of Laguna, Newport, and a visit to Orange County. It was a whirlwind trip but one that saw us make memories that truly have lasted all these years and we still laugh about our Summer Adventure.

Inside Your Environment

Wear it don’t bury it The start of a new Summer school term conjures up memories of an exciting trip into town, Woolworths (who didn’t love Woollies?) to buy shiny new stationary, and finally summer school uniform! Time to ditch the winter uniform as you’d probably have grown out of it by the Autumn term anyway.

We are all aware now that the fashion industry is at a huge turning point and needs to very quickly become more sustainable due to its huge impact on our planet. But when we think or read about it, it usually refers to fast fashion, trends that last as long as the milk in our fridge before we’re looking for the next and dumping cheap garments into landfill. How often do we hear about other forms of clothing? Clothing like school uniforms which are rarely worn for its full life before our children have grown out of it? I thought I would do a bit of research on how we can be more sustainable with our uniform choices.

26 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

I was surprised to find out that it is up to individual schools whether or not they have a uniform policy, and what the policy might entail. The Department for Education (DfE), however, does strongly encourage schools to have uniforms. With estimates for new school uniform costing anything from £100-£300 per child, per year, there is lots of potential here for saving not just some cash, but the health of people and planet too. In a bid to make uniforms fair and affordable, the DfE now recommends allowing non-branded garments, more widely available from different suppliers, even supermarkets, and for those suppliers to keep cost low. In some supermarkets you can pick up a pack of 2 intricately made shirts for less than £3. This is great for us as parents, however it does come with some responsibility. We should still be asking the question made famous by Fashion Revolution ‘Who made my clothes?’ Are they coming from a trustworthy source who look after and pay their garment workers a living wage with safe working conditions? It’s hard to see how that can be possible with some of these prices.


Inside Your Environment

Helen Adams The other question we could ask is; do we need to buy new or could we reuse? The website Old School Uniform is a UK wide website set up by parents for parents, where they can sell or give away used school uniform. There wasn’t much on there for the Worthing area when I came across this site, however, if we begin to use resources like this, we can keep uniform in circulation for longer. Not only is this better for the environment but also it can bring down the cost of our yearly uniform bill. Facebook pages have also been set up specifically for school uniform sales or giveaways. For those on the social media site, there is a busy Worthing page were uniform from all schools in the area are posted. Many schools now also have their own pre-loved system where you can buy quality second hand uniform that’s been grown out of. This is a great option as it’s also a great way of fund raising for new and exciting school resources and events.

If you do need new school uniform, (let’s face it white shirts don’t last too long on an active child!) but you still want to make as small an impact on the planet as possible, there are now online retailers, and one or two high street stores, that sell organic cotton uniform basics.

It’s also nice to know summer is finally on its way! Helen x

Pop-up hub

eat, drink, exercise and have fun…

Plans for an exciting popup project which would turn under-utilised land overlooking Worthing seafront into a brand new food, drink and wellbeing hub have been revealed. With the COVID pandemic forcing many to embrace alfresco socialising, property company QED has submitted a proposal to transform the open-air terrace at Grafton multi-storey car park into a pop-up food and drink outlet for local independent businesses. Known as Level 1, the area is billed as somewhere the whole community can take advantage of – as they work, eat, drink, exercise and have fun – while enjoying the views towards the seafront. The plans have now been formally submitted to Worthing Borough Council ahead of a proposed opening later this year. The firm is calling on businesses to register their interest to operate out of the hub, which aims to create almost 25 new, full-time jobs.

Harry Smith, Director at QED said: “The pop-up will be year-round, and will have a schedule of activities including pilates, yoga, walking clubs and Tai-Chi, as well as there being food and drinks available throughout the day. “We are hoping it will be a next step for some of the seafront concessions to have a premesis, and for their businesses to flourish. “We hope the pop-up will create 24 full-time equivalent jobs and we will focus on recruiting those aged 1624 years old that have been hardest hit by the pandemic.” The proposal builds on the success of the Council’s seasonal concession programme, which has grown in popularity in the town in recent years. As well as being a hub for food and beverage businesses, the terrace will also be a flexible and creative space used to host health and wellbeing activities, public art and events like beach cleans, comedy and quiz nights and Christmas markets, in order

28 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

to engage with different audiences. The Council continues to work towards the longer term regeneration plans of the wider Grafton site. A spokesperson for the Council said: “If approved, the pop-up space will create a fantastic link between the seafront and the town centre and will enhance the appearance of the car park which is a prime seafront property. “It would help to bolster our local economy, giving local, independent businesses the chance to grow and develop after what has been a very challenging year. “The proposed development would also aid in our efforts to regenerate the town centre drawing in visitors from far and wide during what we expect will be a very popular year for staycations.” Local businesses who wish to find out more and register their interest can visit: www.level1worthing.co.uk

Wild Inside

In the sky a bird was heard to cry

Misty morning whisperings And gentle stirring sounds

Grantchester Meadows Pink Floyd

Inside Wild May features sounds that soothe and noises that annoy. A quieter life in the time of COVID makes for restorative reconnections with natural sounds and sometimes even the rare experience of the sound of silence! There has been a partial holiday from the clamour of everyday life without the usual noises of transport and the world of work. Reduction in traffic signals a healthy decrease in pollution, noxious nitrogen dioxide, pernicious particulates and carbon emissions, too! Nonetheless construction companies continue to build roads, civic and retail amenities, new accommodation and multifarious home improvements. Service industries maintain, repair and provide installations for gas, electricity, mains water, waste disposal and now, WOW – fanfare – the rollout of broadband fibre-optic cable to the home! Since Feb. 2020 telecoms engineers have been noisily digging up roads, alleys and pavements and climbing up poles to create futuristic fast fibre connectivity. Improved access to the internet means more of us can stay ‘soundly’ (or perhaps

Dr Barbara Pilley Shaw

noisily) in touch. After laying cables and replacing there may be more racket down the road if subsequent subsidence leads to … repairing potholes! Global developments of industrial hi-tech built environments are so noisy they seem to have generated a mysterious resonating World Wide Hum that some 2% of us unwillingly tune into! In contrast natural sounds like birdsong disappear, alongside many birds. BUT feathered songsters made something of a comeback during lockdown, tuning up to attract mates, staking out territories and building nests before gearing up to feed and protect hatchlings until they fledge. In really wild places the melodious medley of the dawn chorus intensifies through May and June. We’ve lost the expertise of fore-fathers who would have recognised many bird calls but we may be surprised at our knowledge and help is always at hand through wildlife charities.

The Royal Society for Protection of Birds, the richest wildlife charity, is the fifth biggest UK landowner. The Big Garden BirdWatch 2021 was a bumper year for volunteer recorders but not for birds! House Sparrows, Robins and Blackbirds did well but Greenfinches and Chaffinches had lowest ever recorded numbers. Over the last 50 years 40 million birds have disappeared from our skies. The Woodland Trust manages woodland habitats producing downloadable bird spotter sheets. In spring and autumn Nature’s Calendar volunteers clock into Climate Change. They record the impact of changing weather patterns on flowerings and fruitings and on migration patterns of birds Swifts and Swallows, and of Painted Lady butterflies.

Opening date for

Highdown Gardens

The date is announced for reopening the worldfamous Highdown Gardens after a year-long £1m improvement scheme. The public will be able to return to their beloved garden on Highdown Hill on Wednesday June 2, just as the garden explodes into a riot of exotic summer colour. Due to Covid restrictions visitors will initially have to book on the Highdown website from early May and there will be a limit of 30 people at one time. Time slots will be given, and social distancing measures will be in place, however the entry will remain free. Finishing touches are now being put on the Worthing Borough Council-owned Gardens’ £1m upgrade which has been funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The money is being spent to preserve the legacy of the Gardens’ founder Sir Frederick Stern who battled against the odds to create a famous garden of exotic plants from around the world on unforgiving chalk soil. Cataloguing and propagation of many of the rare species in the garden is about to begin. The funds have also been used to increase accessibility to the gardens and to tell the fascinating story, social and horticultural, of the establishment of Highdown between the World Wars and the work undertaken since by the Borough Council to maintain them. A new visitors’ centre has replaced the old head gardener’s bungalow, new pathways will allow wheelchair access from the entrance to the new building and onto a new sensory garden.

32 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

New greenhouses have also been built to help conserve plants and to breed some of the endangered species within the garden. A new plant heritage officer will begin the task of discovering and cataloguing all the plants that Stern grew in the garden, many of which came from China and the Far East, brought to Highdown by intrepid plant hunters. Highdown Gardens project manager Gwenn Parker-Tregoat said, ‘We are really excited to announce the reopening of the gardens. Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund a huge amount of work to enhance the gardens has been undertaken. We are sure visitors, returning and new alike, will find much to enjoy and discover’.


Inside Out and About

‘I want to thank our construction workers, gardeners and volunteers for the incredible work they have all put in to helping us take Highdown to the next important stage of its life. This work has guaranteed it a long-term future.’ ‘We cannot wait to see you all back again in our beloved gardens soon.’ A brand-new website is currently under construction and when launched in May visitors will be able to book a slot to visit online.

Children and Family Centres Why they are so important

Dawn Smith

In recent years Children and Family Centres have become a truly important resource in our communities. They are one of the few places that parents can go to be with others and reach out for support. They are in the heart of our communities, bringing services together and reducing social isolation. Support is available in many forms and that is what makes them so essential. People employed in them can identify many issues and how these can be addressed early before they become more serious. It has thus come as a shock to many that West Sussex County Council are proposing to withdraw services from 32 of the 43 Children and Family Centres in the County. Research published in 2015 indicates that these centres are essential to well being because they improve the physical health of many families and individuals (especially those living with disadvantage) and have a positive social impact on communities. They bring people together, enable people to build networks of support, and combat social isolation.

Catherine Glynn-Davies A whole range of community services are available. ‘The Wave’ in Broadwater has areas for staff to meet, provides NHS services for mothers and babies including baby weighing and breast-feeding support, monitors child development, offers a meet up point for those suffering domestic abuse (Safe in Sussex), has Childminder support meetings, Moo Music for infants, a counselling service for children and families, wellbeing and weight loss classes, and an internet café. This is complemented by the café, which offers a place for elderly and otherwise isolated members of the community to meet for lunch. In addition to these it offers a centre for Foodbank collection and period poverty. If services are withdrawn, it is not known if the café will survive. The logic behind this Early Help Redesign, which will see the closure of so many centres, is that they can better target services to the smaller number of people most in need of support. Indeed, throughout this debate there has been an either/ or discussion about whether we should have children and

34 01903 357003  www.insidemagazines.community

Carl Walker family centres or more mobile, targeted support for those most in need. However, it is clear to anyone who works in this field that we desperately need both approaches in order to meet the range of needs in our communities across the county. We believe that the proposed closures are driven by financial cuts as councils across the country struggle to deal with the loss of 60p in every £1 of funding in the last decade. Our communities desperately need and want these centres in addition to ‘targeted services’. Our petition yielded nearly 4,000 signatures. The WSCC consultation is open. https://yourvoice. westsussex.gov.uk/early-helpredesign Be prepared to write a sentence or two describing your feelings about closures as the format only allows you to consider an option which includes limited services. Or write to your local councillor or MP: www.writetothem.com

We need investment in our communities. We are worth it!

ABOUT ME AND THY WILL BE DONE Hi, I’m Paul Blackmoore and I’m the sole Director of Thy Will Be Done. I’m currently working from home during the lockdown with my 2 little helpers, Benny and Frankie who are both rescue French Bulldogs.

A Living Will/Advance directive

My main areas of expertise are; Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Prepaid Funeral plans and Probate. It has always been my mission to bring to everyday folk the same protection opportunities that the rich and famous have had for generations. I achieve this as follows: 1. All of my advice is free at all times – you only pay when you engage me to work for you. 2. I offer exceptional value for money – Wills from £49.99 - 2 Lasting Powers of Attorney with an advance directive including vat and all Office of the Public Guardian fees just £545 - Pre-paid funeral plans from just £9 per week – Trusts from just £199 and I conduct probate for just 1.75% of the estate value plus vat. 3. I am 100% transparent with my pricing and how I work at all times. Many people are concerned about: 1. Living with partners but not being married. 2. Having to use their homes to pay for care fees in the future. 3. How much their families may need to pay in probate and inheritance tax fees. 4. Protecting their children if they leave everything to a spouse and the spouse then remarries after their death. 5. How to ensure their children will not lose half of their inheritance if they divorced after inheriting. 6. How to protect grandchildren or vulnerable beneficiaries. I am able to deliver solutions that are 100% legally effective in overcoming all of these problems and many more besides. To help with fees I am also able to offer guaranteed interest free credit without the need for any credit checks to make protecting your family more affordable.
