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

After the balmy days of early September, we can really start to feel the autumnal air with it’s familiar “mushroomy” smell as we venture out onto our beautiful Downs. I’m lucky enough to be on the Downs every day, way up where it feels like I have the whole place to myself. It’s my little piece of heaven, and in Autumn it takes on a beautiful hue and is possibly my favourite time for walking. Look at me getting all romantic! Back to Inside West Worthing. I would really like to hear from Heene Community Centre. I had a call from a lady who attends the centre regularly and thinks it would be superb to print a list of activities for the community to enjoy. If you are part of a group or run a regular activity in West Worthing please get in touch so that they can be listed.

INSIDE Welcome

West Worthing is still a young magazine compared to other areas that have been running for almost 5 years.

The First 1,000 Days – What it Means for You and Your Baby The Importance of the First 1,000 Days on Child Development and Health

W

e live our lives in many diverse ways, but we share many of the same hopes for our children. We want them to grow up healthily, do well at school and go on to lead a happy and secure life. As a parent, we want them to have the best start in life and the foundations are laid in the “First 1,000 Days”. This is defined by UNICEF as the period from conception to around the child’s second birthday. It is a critical phase for the development and growth of the child, and the adult that the child will ultimately become. During pregnancy, the mother’s diet, the rate at which she gains weight, her lifestyle choices and her physical and mental wellbeing are all critically important factors on the health of her growing child. For the best outcomes, the mother needs to eat a healthy diet containing as much fresh and unprocessed food as possible. In particular I want to stress the importance of there being enough Folic Acid in the diet. This nutrient is found chiefly in green leafy vegetables. However, it is also available in tablet form, 400mcg per day in the 1st three months of pregnancy will give a high level of protection for the baby against spina bifida. It is helpful to plan pregnancy, as the benefit of Folic Acid is reduced in later stages. Although smoking in pregnancy is decreasing, it is still far too common particularly in households that are already disadvantaged in other ways. Smoking often leads to babies with low birth weight. Drinking alcohol is also not advised. Alcohol passes to the baby, and can cause premature birth and low birth weight. Heavy drinking during pregnancy can cause Foetal Alcohol Syndrome, which can lead to poor growth and learning difficulties through adulthood. A developing baby is a fragile thing, and the mother needs to provide a safe and nurturing environment, and of course fathers have an absolute duty to support their partner in this!

www.insidemagazine.community

In the early months of a new baby’s life, there is little doubt that the nutritional benefit from mother’s milk is unmatched. It provides the baby with the antibodies the baby needs to fight infections, and as such can be considered the baby’s first vaccine. Breastfeeding gives long lasting protection against obesity in later life, and evidence is growing that mothers who breastfeed gain some protection for their own health against a wide range of conditions including breast and ovarian cancer, heart disease, diabetes and depression. It is understood by health professionals, however, that some mothers do have difficulties with breastfeeding. Any young mum who is struggling with this should seek advice. The NHS and maternity charities can offer very good help and guidance, and are always sympathetic and welcoming. As the child grows, the diet is still important as lifelong habits will be established. Growing needs energy, which is why children seem to have an insatiable appetite for sweets. However, it is better for them to have a diet of protein rich foods, fruit and vegetables, whole grains plus milk and other dairy. This is often difficult for parents, but the rewards for encouraging healthy eating are plentiful. Over the past several years there has been much concern about increasing obesity in school age children. I am glad to say though, that here in West Sussex we have a good record in this regard, ranking 7th in the league tables of English Councils. The consequences of obesity in young children can reach into later life, increasing risks for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Having children is an exciting time for parents, but brings responsibilities and hard work. Getting it right is never easy, but if you are informed and supported you can do a great job. For further help, get in touch with your GP practice for a referral to local services.

INSIDE Clubs and Hobbies

Everyone makes movies these days,

don’t they?

T

he ubiquitous smart phone allows anyone to make movies. But what if you want to take things to the next level? That’s where South Downs Film Makers come in. SDFM is a Worthing based, amateur film-making club. It gives members an opportunity to make new friends and get involved in creating quality films as part of a team. They have around 25 members and are looking for new recruits. They have now re-started club meetings at Ferring Village Hall on the third Wednesday of every month from 7:30pm. So this is a great time to go along and join them! Whether you have past experience of making films or no experience at all, it really doesn’t matter! Whatever your interest – as a camera operator, a budding director, an actor or scriptwriter – you will be made welcome. SDFM is the place for creative enthusiasts. They have some great film making equipment available to use and skilled members to help get into the film making process. As a community minded club, their films are very popular with local people. They endeavour to provide an interesting programme for their members, mostly

on topics relevant to film making. These could be about the latest developments in the field of camera technology, editing or audio techniques. They hold several in-house competitions each year to encourage members in film making and have a number of social activities too. So, if this sounds appealing, why not go along to a couple of no-obligation meetings? You can be sure of a warm welcome. For more information and to see some of their work, check out their website: http:// www.southdownsfilmmakers.org.uk/

THE CLUB’S AIMS ARE: • Encourage interest in film making as a hobby (Drama, Documentary & Comedy)

Reflecting Back and

Looking Forward

Kevin Jenkins COUNCILLOR

T

he effects of the Covid pandemic and the lockdown that followed, have seen an increase in demand across a number of areas of business within the council. Reflecting Back - One of those areas that has seen considerable growth in demand is within the planning and building control section. During lockdown many of us focussed time on making improvements to our homes and gardens. This was regularly reported in the national media as the demand for building materials reached an all-time high and some materials became scarce. Locally this was reflected in an significant increase in the number of applications for planning permission for extensions or new homes submitted to the council. The number reached a 10-year high and the teams have been working hard to ensure that these applications are progressed as swiftly as possible, so that you can turn your plans into reality.

Planning and building control is a key provision of the council, but it is much wider than just considering planning applications. As an authority, they also offer a dedicated commercial building control service to check and regulate that any new works are completed safely to the right standards and in accordance with the agreed plans. If as a household you are thinking about doing any work to your home, the quickest and easiest way to get some advice is online using the Planning Aid website. Here you can check what permissions or conditions you may have to consider or apply for, it is quick and easy. https://planningaid.zendesk.com/hc/en-us

The team also offers a commercial fire risk assessment and fire safety advice service should it be required. Remember the easiest way to protect your home from fire is to have a working smoke alarm, with at least one alarm on every floor of your home, and to test them monthly. Looking Forward - By October it is anticipated that Worthing Borough Council will have secured full ownership of the much bemoaned and dilapidated Teville Gate site. There is little doubt that over the past 20 plus years the town has been poorly served by the commercial sector who have privately owned the site, yet despite their plans have failed to bring forward the much needed redevelopment. The council recognises that there is much to do with this site and that detailed plans to reinvigorate this area need to be considered and consulted upon. Whilst that happens the intention is to reopen the area as much as possible and reestablish public access between the train station and the town. Suitable ‘meanwhile’ use is also being explored to activate the area and improve its appearance. Accessing the town centre, the council has recently increased the number of dedicated disabled bays in the council run Liverpool Gardens surface car park to help those who need to access the town in a wheelchair or similar. These bays allow for side and rear loading access onto a level surface and lead directly into the Montague Quarter shopping centre.

INSIDE Worthing WI

Hello

everyone T

he WI offers eleven meetings a year for your membership. We do not meet usually in August and have a summer outing instead. A trip to Highclere Castle was our last summer outing and we all had a wonderful time. Last year we had planned to go to the Milestones Museum in Basingstoke but as that didn’t happen, hopefully we will be able to go next year. Our committee decided we should have an online meeting in August as we were not able to go on our outing and so we had a very interesting talk by local historian, Chris Hare, “Riots and Respectability in a seaside town”. He used old photographs and photographs of old paintings to illustrate his talk. It was so interesting to see what people looked like, what they wore and how the town looked in times gone by. After Chris’s talk we went into breakout groups to discuss whether to meet in person for our next meeting. Our competition this September was ‘The most interesting entrance’ and was won by a member who took a lovely photo of St Mary’s Farmhouse in Durrington Lane. The WI offers many different clubs that cater for all our

different interests. Many of these have been put on hold but we are hoping to resume them all soon. We have, however, started a new group “The Stiff Nipples Sea Swimmers”, so if you see a bunch of ladies braving the waves do stop and say hello! Our cookery group has been very active on WhatsApp and members post details of what they have been making and share recipes. Members also share produce from their garden if they have some spare. Likewise with our gardening group, seeds are swapped, and various plants are shared. Last year our gardening group had a plot on the seafront which produced a lovely display of flowers for the town. Our garden visits will also resume in the spring. Our craft group have been sharing ideas and are in the process of making a quilt for the federation’s craft competition. Book clubs, previously meeting on zoom every month during lockdown have now resumed in person. There are three book clubs altogether with different times to suit our members who are still working or have other commitments. We managed to meet up on the greensward in Goring for a reunion. Many of us had not seen each other in person for a long time.

Next month’s meeting will be a talk about the Crown Jewels by Alan Kingshott, who was Chief Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London. We’ll be looking forward to that.

Dancers from Worthing are celebrating after taking top spot at the Dance World Cup

14 www.insidemagazine.community

upils from Glendale Theatre Arts in Worthing have returned from the Dance World Cup, the biggest dance competition in the world with medals after competing against 120,000 competitors from 62 different countries. A team of 30 dancers aged 12-21 from Glendale were chosen to represent Team England, and between them scooped up medals in a variety of classes including 3 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 3 bronze medals, 2 of which were for group items with around 28 dancers in each piece! The team also placed in the top 6 in other sections, winning further points for Team England - who went on to win the Dance World Cup! Incredibly, Glendale have won gold medals at every Dance World Cup they have entered, as well as having items selected for the prestigious Gala Showcase in every year they have competed. The Gold medals were won by Leila Grannell (Tap solo) Harvey Pearce (Boy’s Jazz Solo) and Lisa Bird with Jessie Popkiewicz-Smith (Song and Dance Duet). Mandy Chapman, principal of the school said: “I’m so proud of the whole team; auditioning and

being selected to dance for England is a huge honour and the whole team have been amazing. It has been such a challenging time for all of the dance schools and dance teachers with a lot of the training taking place online, so it has been a huge achievement for us all to pull this together. Senior pupils Lisa Bird and Leila Grannell, both 19, have participated in every Dance World Cup in which Glendale has competed, since 2011. Not only that, but they have also won Gold at every one, in different genres. Both girls are now moving on to their next big adventures with Lisa gaining a place at the prestigious Royal College of Music and Leila, after achieving amazing A-Level results in Biology, Chemistry and History will be studying Neuroscience at the University of Sussex next month”. She added: “Students who also achieve academic success as well as such creative arts successes prove you don’t have to ‘choose’ between after school activities and ‘academics’!

INSIDE Our Town

Improving Housing for Cllr Daniel Humphreys LEADER OF THE COUNCIL WORTHING BOROUGH COUNCIL

Local Families

E

nsuring that local families have access to decent and affordable housing is one of the most important duties of a council. Across the nation we find ourselves in what many describe as a ‘housing crisis’ and it’s hard to argue with that description. Many readers will recall the days of 15% interest rates and the struggle to pay their mortgage. The challenges faced by the current generation of first time buyers and renters are not new. But they are different. Interest rates are now far lower but the size of the deposit required to get on the ladder in the first place is astronomically higher. This coupled with the highest rents in history makes life doubly hard for renters and those with aspirations of ever owning a home. Here in Worthing our blessed location between the South Downs and the sea means that opportunities for expanding the supply of new housing are few and far between. This in turn means that we have one of the highest house price to earnings ratios in the country. Housing insecurity and homelessness leads to higher demands on council taxpayers, worse health outcomes and can lead to increased crime and anti-social behaviour. Worthing Borough Council is tackling this on a number of fronts in order to help local families access decent housing. We’re bringing forward brownfield and council owned sites to be built on

16 www.insidemagazine.community

by housing companies or local firms. In a number of cases we’re leading the development ourselves. At Fulbeck Avenue our partnership with Scandinavian firm BoKlok means that new methods of construction will provide 152 homes for sale or rent at affordable prices for families in Worthing. At Union Place we bought the site of the former police station after development had stalled. Permission has now been granted for a mixed use development that will include 169 new homes. Meanwhile at Teville Gate we have finally been able to take back control of the site and aim to ensure that the new development will include up to 230 new homes. Too many local families are often reliant on ‘temporary’ or emergency accommodation in the form of B&B or hotel accommodation when they lose their homes. To ensure that we reduce this occurrence we have redeveloped two sites in West Worthing that together now provide 36 new units to house families who have fallen on hard times and give them the opportunity for a better life. These are just some of the ways in which your council is rising to the challenge of providing pathways to affordable housing for families in Worthing. This means that more families will enjoy decent housing, pressures on council budgets will be lower and we’ll all live in healthier, happier and safer communities.

What makes something cool and just maybe worth hanging on to? Is it good design? Is it great functionality? Is it celebrity endorsement? Is it scarcity? Is this a list that could go on forever? Probably yes.

S Matt Marchant

ome stuff is just cool and loved from the off, and some things take a while longer to enter the hall of fame. But why is that? Why does it happen? I was pondering this while going through my workshop enquiry inbox recently, and began wondering what motivates people to get something working again or restored to its former glory. The subject is probably a study in its own right, but I thought I’d share my own thoughts on the subject here. Now might be a good idea, assuming you fancy a drink, to grab a cuppa. Please come back as soon as possible. One of the things I get asked to

repair frequently is food mixers, especially Kenwood Chefs. Like the original Mini, AEC Routemaster London Bus and K6 Phone Box, the Chef in its many forms has become a design icon. It also helps that the mixer excels in function and is timeless in design. Many Chefs that I receive come with an interesting family backstory. Recently, one such example involved a 1964 machine which had travelled the world, after being originally purchased in South Africa. It had accompanied an army family each time my customer’s husband had transferred to start another tour. The Chef had grown up with her family making cakes, treats and dinners for over 60 years and had visited over 15 countries and was now worth way more to its owner than the sum of its parts. After the mixer was repaired and returned, I was told that the Chef would be passed down to the next generation to enjoy, when the time came.

Chefs, new and old, have spare parts readily available with straightforward access to technical information, making repair possible. I was able to fix this one which only needed a motor overhaul and gearbox regrease. Not bad service really, considering its age and life! Old toys are another ‘workshop favourite’ enquiry. Many toys from the 1970s and 1980s have seemingly survived playtime to then be laid up in attics and cupboards for many years, only to be rediscovered when children move out or something similar is spotted, while browsing eBay! Toys from this era which take batteries, tend to have traditional electromechanical parts (switches, motors and bulbs etc.) which if broken, can be repaired or replaced. By comparison, later made toys with microprocessors and micro components are sometimes very difficult to

reboot without donor parts. A few months ago, I repaired a motorised ‘Tomy Kong Man’ toy for a customer who had found it in his parents’ loft. The toy was in good condition, but wasn’t working. The Dad wanted to get it working for his kids as he remembered having so much fun with it, when he was their age. After a good hour of dismantling, cleaning, a touch of soldering and re-lubricating, the toy was working well once again, ready to be enjoyed by the next generation. The great thing about the repairs recalled here is that the owners all had a connection with their item and were prepared to preserve it for future generations. For whatever reason a strong bond had formed between item

and owner, established over many years and incorporating many shared experiences. It’s programs like BBC’s The Repair Shop and Drew Pritchard’s restoration TV which draw out those backstories to bring tales of product ownership to life. Sustainable is probably an overused word at the moment, but in order to really live more sustainably and reduce our impact on our environment, we need to buy less stuff, love the things we already have for longer and lobby decision makers to assist when repair barriers exist. So, the next time you’re thinking about binning your old Hoover, just think about all the fun memories you’ve had together and consider repairing it. For ‘The Workshop’, it’s about preserving an item, with its story intact, keeping it going, providing good service and enjoyment for as long as reasonably possible.

Until the next time.

October Autumn sees us sustainably foraging for ‘Food for Free’ that isn’t ‘Costing the Earth’!

B

efore modern humankind, our huntergatherer ancestors sought provisions from nature, gathering fruits, herbs, roots; collecting insects and small animals; scavenging from predators, and hunting live prey. Often they travelled to accommodate seasonal change, or stored caches against hard times. With settled agriculture, foraging diminished and food storage was more ingenious, sun-drying, freeze-drying, fermenting, smoking and salting. ZOOOOM… fast forward through industrial and technological revolutions …to our current globally urbanised world where ‘foraging’ may be a car

trip to plunder a supermarket or a virtual quest for provender online! We disconnect from the food on our plates, its origins, journeys, the energy required for preparation, packaging and storage and, crucially, what it really contains. Food labelling has become a complex multifaceted moral maze. Globalised exploration, colonisation and migration mean ever-fluctuating trade partnerships, underpinned by currencies, real and virtual, and driven by investment in food procurement as a ‘growth’ economy! Such procurement is no longer dictated by locality, climate and what a soil system can sustainably yield, nor is it managed by those who understand the land, how to grow crops and make a balanced livelihood whilst harvesting sustainably. High Street café culture relies on imported tea, coffee, cocoa, palm oil and more! These grow on trees and bushes as do exotic spices like cinnamon and other ingredients much sought after by foodies for fine dining. Vast plantations feed ever-extending Western diets and midriffs, such that over half the world’s wild tree species lose habitat and edge towards extinction, according to the Global Tree Assessment Report by Botanic Garden Conservation International. Of 58,497 native trees worldwide, 142 are

now extinct and 30% - one in three - at risk. Habitat loss from crops and livestock constitute 43% of the threat, alongside logging, invasive species, diseases and more... Biodiverse South America and Indonesia provide much food and are experiencing greatest native tree loss. Even in relatively species-poor Europe, wild species of Rowan and Whitebeam are threatened with extinction! Food Sovereignty, the right to heathy, culturally appropriate food, produced in ecological, socially fair and sustainable ways, emphasises production of local, seasonal goods. Autumn means traditional harvest festivals and apple pressing, when ‘all is safely gathered in, ‘ere the winter storms begin’ and foraging instincts send us rifling gardens and allotments to make and store preserves. On Our South Downs, knolls and byways of native scrub – woody, bushy, shrubland vegetation, somewhere between field and forest - provide fruitful pickings. Hedgerows are vibrant, biodiverse wildlife corridors full of natural nuts and berries, riches for the taking in moderation and with wildlife in mind. They provide bird food before leaving for, or after arriving from, divers migrations, especially feasting flocks of Fieldfares and Redwings escaping colder climes. Hibernating small mammals, Dormice, feast on

THE INSIDE on Social Media

Which social media platform is right

for my business? Jordan J. Whittingham

Jordan J. Whittingham The Inside on Social Media

I

f I had a penny for every time I got asked this question, I would probably have enough to rival even the colossal wallet of Mark Zuckerberg, founder & CEO of Facebook. The answer to this question is often not what people want to hear, but that doesn’t make it any less true. Most business owners will know of someone who swears by Facebook for generating sales, or one that is thriving on Instagram, or perhaps someone that’s crushing it on TikTok or Twitter. But the truth is, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to the marketing, social or otherwise, of your business. What works for Dave might not work for John, and what works for Julie won’t work for Sarah. I work with many clients who have found themselves overly reliant on a single source of lead generation - it might not even be social media, but I implore you right now to take a look at your own business. If it relies heavily on customers coming in from a single source, warning bells should be ringing! We’ve already seen the devastating effects this can have in the past 18 months with the pandemic. Businesses that were overly reliant on certain sources and slow to adapt to change are either no longer around or in serious trouble. The truth is social media, like any other form of marketing, should be spread evenly across

platforms. So that if overnight some massive changes at Instagram render your account useless (and yes, this does happen… regularly!) you do not need to panic, because you still have Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, your website, magazine ads, and other methods to rely on. I can sit here and tell you that Instagram is great for aesthetically pleasing businesses like bars, clubs, artists, or crafters; and that Facebook is more suited to those with a client base over the age of 40. TikTok is for those looking to reach Gen-Z and Millennials; and LinkedIn is best for Business to Business companies. Although, broadly speaking, this would be accurate, it doesn’t change the fact that I know of traders who are incredibly successful on TikTok, artists who swear by Twitter, and Etsy sellers who’ve found great success on LinkedIn! But what really makes a business evergreen is when it has an audience in multiple areas, both offline and online. The trick to success with online marketing is to be present and active (see last months article for the pitfalls of inactive accounts) on all the major platforms and to enjoy creating and discovering an audience in different places. This really is the difference between those who survive and those that become mere footnotes in history.

To summarise, and at the risk of sounding like a two-bit stock broker; diversify, avoid high risk strategies, and invest your time and energy wisely to survive market downturns. Wall Street’s loss really was marketing’s gain!

INSIDE Local History

When Worthing was a Town of

Riots and Protests This is the second of three extracts we are serialising from Chris Hare’s new book,“Worthing in the Bad Old Days – Riot, Beer and the Word of God.” The book costs £5 and all proceeds go to the charity set up in his son’s memory, Olly’s Future (www.ollysfuture.org.uk). Copies are only obtainable from Worthing Library or directly from Mr. Hare at sussexhistory.hare@gmail.com

W

orthing saw a huge increase in its population during the nineteenth century (larger in percentage terms than the rise in the twentieth century) and most of the incomers came from the rural hinterland, villages such as Findon, Washington, Ashington, Storrington Steyning, and so on. It is possible, therefore, that this influx enhanced rather than diluted the existing conservative social structures of the town,

including traditional forms of popular protest. Perceived wrongs were settled by old customs of community justice, rather than by recourse to the police who were often mistrusted and despised by working class people. This community justice was highly ritualised and known as ‘rough music.’ It was applied to transgressors of an unwritten community code of morals, for example, men who acted violently towards their wives or children.

www.insidemagazine.community 26 1 www.insidemagazine.community

01903 357003

With blackened faces and armed with old tin cans filled with stones, or a drum or other crude instrument, the rough music band would assemble outside their victim’s house and begin making a low noise – almost a murmur – but as time passed the sound they made would increase in intensity, as the tins were rattled more furiously. The discordant sounds of the instruments grew to deafening proportions. This was a warning to the man to ‘mend his ways’ or face more extreme punishment. Failure to heed the warning would result in another visit of the rough music band, only this time they would parade an effigy of the man and throw stones through his windows – they might even seize and beat him. In the most extreme cases the victim was forced out of town. Those believed guilty of domestic abuse were the most likely to be targeted, but the rough music band could also visit dishonest shopkeepers, severe employers; policemen and outsiders, whose presence in the community was deemed to be having an unsettling influence. On one occasion a wealthy couple were accused of unjustly sacking their footman who went on to take his own life. On another, a wealthy married woman accused of adultery and defamation received rough


INSIDE Local History

music from those who took the side of the woman she had slighted. None of these riots ever resulted in a prosecution. Never did Mr. Henty or Mr. Tribe issue summonses for the arrest of members of the rough music band. In truth, the two classes – gentry and working class – were often united by a desire to maintain the social order and resist the pressure to change from professional middle class newcomers to the town. Then there was November 5th – Bonfire Night – rough music on a colossal scale – a night when the streets were given over to the mob and when old scores from the previous year could be settled. Bonfire Boys battled with the police for possession of the streets. They rolled burning barrels covered in tar and hauled burning boats through the streets. They made effigies of those who had offended them and then burned the effigies as the climax of their celebrations. Sometimes these effigies were of local people and sometimes of national figures. Rarely did the magistrates feel the need to intervene. Even when serious

rioting took place and policemen were badly injured, as occurred in 1852, 1876 and 1877, the magistrates only reluctantly took action by seeking to swear-in special constables. So, when, in 1883, the Salvation Army had large posters pasted up around Worthing, announcing their intention of ‘Attacking Worthing’ and saving the Godless population from their wicked ways. It should come as no surprise that their arrival was not welcomed, either by the mob or by the local elite. In fact, the reception they received on their arrival was so hostile that they abandoned their open-air meetings and retreated to their ‘barracks’, situated between Prospect Place and Montague Street. But in the spring of 1884, a new Captain was appointed to lead the Worthing Corps – 23-year-old Ada Smith, who declared, “If the Devil doesn’t attack us, we must attack Him!” Her policy was to march, twice weekly – on a Wednesday and a Sunday – into ‘the vilest spots’; the streets where the rough music/ bonfire boys lived and challenge them to change their

ways or face hellfire. It was almost as if the rough musickers were themselves being rough musicked! The result was a summer of discontent and violence, which culminated in the notorious riots of that August. The inhabitants of the ‘vilest spots’ formed themselves into a ‘Skeleton Army’ to oppose the Salvation Army. When the leaders of the Salvation Army went to the Worthing magistrates, seeking protection from those who were attacking them, the senior magistrate told them that they themselves had provoked the violence and that they were a disgrace and would get no help from him. This was a green light for the ‘skeletons’ to unleash even more violence. Taking advantage of the cheap rail tickets, supporters of the The Skeleton Army Riots ‘Worthing Skeletons’ came from as far away as Eastbourne to join the rioting. At one point it was estimated that 4,000 people were on the streets – this at a time when the normal population of the whole town was only 12,000!

Intricate beauty of Petworth Park’s ancient trees revealed in new exhibition

P

etworth GPS Trees by Richard Geraint Evans features incredibly detailed drawings of different tree specimens from the National Trust’s Petworth House and Park in West Sussex. Each artwork has its own set of GPS coordinates so that you can discover the tree for yourself. Petworth House is known for its exquisite art collection, including portraits by famous artists such as Sir Anthony Van Dyck. However, in this new exhibition portraiture artist Richard turns the focus to nature, capturing nine images of ancient trees in near perfect likeness. These specimens can be found in Petworth’s grounds, along with a cedar that grows at the nearby National Trust’s Woolbeding Gardens. Created with pen and graphite on cotton paper, then framed using sustainable softwood, Richard’s drawings help tell the story of the extraordinary trees at Petworth. One ancient specimen in the Deer Park here is around 940 years old. This oak has survived all the landscape changes since the 12th century.  Richard tells the tale of his encounter with this ancient tree: “The first thing that struck me was the tree’s sheer size, not just the girth of the trunk but also its height. I myself first met this 940 year old colossus with my Mum in November 2008. It was a morning of occasional rain and we sheltered

in its huge shadow; our sandwiches were saved and my sketchbooks remained dry. My gratitude is expressed through this drawing.” The GPS coordinates of each tree are also noted by the drawing, so viewers can experience a connection with nature themselves. Richard explains: “By writing the tree’s GPS coordinates beneath my tree portraits I invite you to visit the actual tree. I do this because I want to create stronger emotional bonds between people and individual trees. I believe that once we take the time to find, meet and ‘connect’ with the subjects of my drawings we are more likely to care about the tree’s long-term welfare.” Part of Richard’s work is about inspiring others to conserve the natural world, and encouraging protection of trees so they can continue to provide homes for wildlife, mitigation against climate change and natural beauty for everyone to enjoy.

At Petworth, visitors can support conservation work by donating. Sarah Taylor, Senior Programming Officer for Petworth House says: “It’s a pleasure to see Richard Geraint Evans’s detailed portraits of trees at Petworth go on display in the exhibition room here. These portraits show Richard’s incredible talent, but also the rich heritage of Petworth Park, and the magnificent stories the trees have to tell. The exhibition really summarises the spirit of Petworth, combining both artwork and conservation.” GPS Trees by Richard Geraint Evans can be seen in the exhibition room of Petworth Servants’ Quarters, Monday 11 October – Sunday 5 December 2021, 10:30am-3:30pm. No advanced booking needed, but visitors are required to purchase a ticket to the site to enter, free for National Trust members. For more details visit the Petworth House and Park website.
