A VIEW FROM THE ROSTRUM Parson Son & Basley’s Simon Caplin: A very warm welcome to our second auction of 2018


appily the weather is a lot nicer than it was during our sale in February, although even the arctic conditions and the snow could not prevent us having what was a very successful day, much to the delight of our clients. For this auction we will be continuing with our initiative to include a charity lot as donated by one of the local businesses we are pleased to be associated with. The entire proceeds of the sale will be going to our chosen charity, which on this occasion we are

“ We are committed to help local

charities and will be continuing to do so throughout 2018 at each of our auctions ”

delighted to announce will be Chestnut Tree House, a wonderful charity who provide end of life care for terminally ill children. We are very grateful to Hamed Ovaisi and his team at So Legal Solicitors who have kindly donated the charity lot for this particular auction. As a company, we are committed to help local charities and will be continuing to do so throughout 2018 at each of our auctions. We started off in February by raising £300 for the Clock Tower Sanctuary, who help the homeless in Brighton & Hove, by LATEST TV | VIRGIN MEDIA 159 | FREEVIEW CHANNEL 7

auctioning a race track day at Brands Hatch – something that I am pleased to say attracted a lot of interest! We do have a real cross section of properties to offer you for this auction, ranging from a single garage in central Hove to an unbroken freehold investment comprising of 14 self­contained flats all fully let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies producing a rental income of £140,000 per annum. We also have an exceptional selection of buy­to­let investments, a building plot with planning permission just off Sackville Road, as well a very nice flat in Sussex Square, one of Brighton's most sought­after locations. In Bates Road, just off Surrenden Road, a three storey 3­4 bedroom terraced house provides for versatile accommodation or, subject to planning permission, conversion into two maisonettes. Over in Shoreham, we have a quite delightful and substantial detached family home in Buckingham Road with a west­facing garden, private drive and garage. A parcel of land in Greencourt Drive, Bognor Regis will no doubt be attracting a lot of interest, as will no doubt a substantial detached residence in The Kingsway, Bognor Regis. So, as I am sure you will agree, a very eclectic selection of properties for you to invest in is being offered for sale. We are expecting another packed auction room so please do make sure you arrive in plenty of time to register to bid if you haven't already done so, and take advantage of the complimentary teas, coffees and cookies that will be available to you. Jennifer, myself and the team very much look forward to seeing you on 2nd May at the Old Ship Hotel in Brighton at 11am.­auction advertising feature

CHATFIELD CLOSE SHOW HOME Oakley & Gold Developments working together


akley Property are thrilled to be opening the doors on an amazing new show home within their latest new homes project at Chatfield Close, Cooksbridge. There is some history to the village as it is believed it took its name from the Cooks who fed the soldiers of Simon de Montfort from the bridge on their way to the battle of Lewes in 1264. The troops came from nearby Fletching, where they spent the night in prayer on their way to defeat King Henry III. Chatfield Close is a collection of beautifully appointed family homes created by Gold Property Developments to compliment the local surroundings. The houses are to be finished to extremely high standards with particular attention to modern lifestyle, offering flexible living spaces with an open plan ground floor, ideal for entertaining. There are 27 houses in total with a selection of three­ and four­bedroom detached and semi­detached properties available. Each of the houses has its own allocated parking and landscaped rear garden.

“ A collection of beautifully appointed family homes ” David Beaken, a Director at Oakley New Homes, commented; “This has been a really exciting project to work on. The first thing you notice is how open the site is, there is so much more space than you would expect when driving past and with open fields to one side there is a fantastic outlook.” Gold Property Developments Ltd is a family­run company based in Kent. Established 21 years ago, they specialise in building

properties in the South East of England. Gold have a reputation for well­designed properties built to an exceptionally high standard. Regarding specification the designer kitchens have Quartz worktops and integrated appliances including a Bosch induction hob and oven, fridge freezer, extractor hood and dishwasher. The bathrooms are designed with a contemporary feel to offer excellent quality throughout with tiled floors and walls, wall­ mounted vanity units with mirrors, overhead showers and polished chrome heated towel rails. All the houses have gas fired central heating with zone control. For security and peace of mind there are mains­fed smoke detectors, intruder alarms and each home will be sold with a 10 year CRL Structural Warranty. Each project Gold work on is designed with the local area in mind, with a range of styles to create living communities which are easy on the eye. Prices for the homes start from £445,000. The Oakley team invite you to come and view the new show on Saturday April 14, 10am – 4pm and Sunday 15 April 10am – 4pm. There is no appointment required, you can just come along. If you wish to book a specific time or would like to discuss in more detail, please call David Beaken on 01273 487444 or email For further detail or to download a brochure visit

BRIGHTON Access to the arts for all? We need to do better – says Julian Caddy, managing director of Brighton Fringe


righton Fringe is soon upon us and along with it come all the superlatives we’ve come to expect from England’s largest arts festival: the biggest and smallest, the brightest and best, the youngest, oldest and newest. In fact it’s the largest assembly of up­ and­coming creatives from all over the city, the country and around the world. All for over 4,500 performances and events at 150 venues and an expected attendance of more than half a million people.

“ Work both by and for people with particular access needs and visible or invisible disabilities ”

This is a feat that is achieved through the efforts of a massive number of people and organisations. It’s big because it is open access. And open access means universal, in that anyone who wants to take part, can do so. It is a microcosm of society itself. But beneath the surface lies a deep inequity, that is also endemic in the society that Brighton Fringe embodies: the arts are still not completely accessible, or indeed accessed by large swathes of the population. It is therefore the role of Brighton Fringe to not only reflect society but also to encourage greater participation and involvement from all, no matter the age, culture, sub­culture, ethnicity or disability. 8 | LATEST HOMES

We have endless ambition but limited means to achieve it. Despite this we are the only arts festival, not only to have programmes to help young people but also to offer bursary support to the over 60s to aid participation by offering free registration. We have also pioneered the first ever ‘Freedom Season’. A selection of 16 pieces of work both by and for people with particular access needs and visible or invisible disabilities. It also features a range of events offering signed, audio described, captioned, relaxed, touch tours, all in venues adapted to cater for universal access. It is the tip of the iceberg in terms of being where we would like to be, but just like much of Brighton Fringe, it’s an unfunded enterprise, but one that we should never either underestimate or ignore. Over the coming seasons of Brighton Fringe we will continue to focus, direct and encourage inclusion from all sections of the community that we represent. Being open access isn’t enough; we must be inspiring and useful to people who, for whatever reason either are or feel excluded. And we as a society have much to learn from the experience too. The words “Set Yourself Free” emblazoned on the front cover of the Brighton Fringe brochure should apply to everyone, not just those with who can access it most easily.
