Selsey ‘torturer’ does porridge Continued from page 1 The Press Association reports Lord Justice Treacy, sitting with Mrs Justice Swift and Mr Justice Green at the Court of Appeal in London heard from Solicitor General Oliver Heald that the original custodial term of six years handed down to Cannon was ‘unduly lenient’. It was argued on behalf of Mr Heald that the “aggravating” features of the attack merited a longer term, and that insufficient weight was given by the sentencing judge at Chichester Crown Court to the fact that Cannon demonstrated hostility towards the man “based on his sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation”. The court agreed and on Tuesday increased the six-year sentence to nine years. Offences motivated by hatred for the victim’s perceived or actual race, religion, sexual orientation,

disability or transgender identity currently can receive higher custodial sentences. Commenting on the case, Mr Heald said: “I asked the Court of Appeal to look again at the sentence given to Daniel Cannon as I felt it unduly lenient on the grounds that not only did he keep his victim against his will for a considerable amount of time, he carried out assaults and performed

acts of degradation on him. “Furthermore, Cannon displayed homophobia towards his victim, and sought to humiliate him further by filming part of the incident. “Behaviour like this, whether fuelled by drink and drugs or not, is totally unacceptable and I hope the public are reassured that the court has increased the sentence to nine years.”

RUSSELL BRAND The star of screen stage and voicemail has touched a nerve on why so many of us are disenchanted with our political system. What I find sad is the response of MPs. They’ve come back with things like: “Not voting is not the answer. The proper way to register a non-vote is to write ‘none of the above’ on your paper.” DIGITAL VOTING What sort of a turnout would we get if voting was online? Probably 95%. And if we had proportional representation there would be about half a dozen Jedi Knights on the backbenches. CHEERLEADER SYNDROME A US study reveals people are perceived to be better looking if they are alongside other people of similar looks. It’s called “Cheerleader Syndrome”. People questioned found they might see a group of attractive girls (or boys) only to discover that on further examination each of the individuals are not that attractive. Hence Boy and Girl band success. They even found that if you took the most attractive cheerleader and asked her to stand away from the others and dance, she seemed less attractive.

She got on and said to the driver “Are you the Midhurst bus?” The driver didn’t look up but said “We’re going where it says in the front of the bus love”. He said it in that kind of “Whassup wiv yer stoopid or what?” attitude that you get sometimes. Wife said “It says Bognor on the front.” The driver rolled his eyes, spilled out of his cab and went and looked. He rolled his eyes again and got into the cab and changed the sign to Midhurst. Wife asked her fare and paid, not expecting any kind of apology for his rudeness, and didn’t get one. Nor did she say owt. So it’s for me to say to Mr Bus Driver: “WHASSUP WIV YER STOOPID OR WHAT?”

his football. He reckons that yelling at referees is a sign of childhood problems with authority, and that it’s healthy to express and purge these angers. I asked him whether cricketers and rugby players, being more middle class, had an upbringing free from authority issues which is why they accept even ludicrous decisions, and he says no, it’s just that the bourgeois are great at repressing feelings and doing denial. GROUP PSYCHOLOGY All of us, when we get together professionally or socially, like to knock people who aren’t in our gang. It can lead to racism and bullying and on a lesser scale to aberrations by politicians and the police. Do politicians sit around in the bars of Westminster and laugh at what a bunch of thickos the electorate are? You can bet plenty do.

JOKE The Devil challenged St Peter to a game of football. “How can you win?” said St Peter, “All the legendary players are up here.” “Easy” said the Devil, “All the refs are down here”

Witnesses sought after rock thrown at car near Chichester POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a woman driving west on the A27 between Chichester and Emsworth at about 6.20pm on Friday, November 1, had a rock thrown at her convertible car, smashing the windscreen. The woman and her husband, who was a passenger in the vehicle, were showered in glass but escaped injury. The woman managed to safely stop the car in a nearby lay-by.

The incident occurred as she was driving beneath a bridge which has a sign on it, indicating four miles to Havant. The rock was thrown from the bridge. PC Andy Rawlinson said: "This was an extremely dangerous thing to have done and it is fortunate no one was hurt or even killed. "The bridge carries a farm track over the A27 between Woodmancote Lane and South Lane in Southbourne. It lies

midway between the Stein Road and Broad Road bridges. Anybody who saw anyone loitering either on the bridge or in that area is asked to get in touch." Anyone with information should phone Sussex Police on 101, quoting 1509 of 1/11, or e-mail: contact.centre@sussex. pnn.police.uk. Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two arrested in Hunston drugs operation OFFICERS from the Chichester Neighbourhood Policing Team assisted by the Local Support Team executed a drugs warrant at a house in Reed Close, Hunston, near Chichester at 9.15am on Tuesday 29 October. Heroin and Crack Cocaine with an estimated street value of over £2000 and a quantity of cash were seized. Two people were arrested at the address.

Paul Hoque, 19, of no fixed address was charged with possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply. He appeared at Chichester Magistrates Court the following day and was remanded in custody to appear at the same court on Friday 22 November. A 36-year old woman who was arrested on suspicion of supplying Class A drugs was released on police bail until Saturday 14 December while

enquiries continue. PC Martin Price from the Chichester Crime and Operations team said: "We will continue to robustly target individuals suspected of bringing class A drugs into the Chichester area. We will also work closely with partner agencies, including social landlords, against anyone who allows any such dealers to use their properties.”

Men send children indecent images using phone app PARENTS are being warned to monitor the apps being downloaded by their children after young girls were sent sexually explicit messages. The 10-year-olds, both from the local area, had downloaded AppMe to their iPods without the knowledge of their parents. The app allows people around the world to send free messages to each other almost instantaneously. The children began using the app to talk to a number of people who claimed to be men and who urged the girls to send them naked photographs of themselves. The men sent explicit messages and indecent images of male body parts and repeated their requests for the girls to return the favour despite the children telling them their ages. Earlier this year Sussex Police issued a warning after reports of similar incidents involving the social messaging system Kik. Leanne McSorley, from the response investigation team, said: "All of these men were able to hide behind screen names to preserve their anonymity and prevent the children knowing who they were talking to.

"The two girls are both shocked and very upset about what happened. We know about their case because their parents found out and contacted us but there could be other young girls who are being targeted but who have kept it to themselves. "One of the men also tried to contact the girls through a computer using Skype but they refused to talk to him. "It is unclear how old those who have been approaching the children really are or whether they have asked for the images for their own entertainment or to pass among others. "We are concerned they may pose a risk to them. "I would urge parents to speak to their children to warn them about the dangers of making friends online, sending indecent images of themselves and in particular agreeing to meet people who they have only met online." Anyone who has any information about adults contacting children online inappropriately should call 101, email contact.centre@ sussex.pnn.police.uk or call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Record Office announces new workshops for family historians A NEW programme of workshops has been organised for people who want to trace their family tree. The “coffee-time” sessions, which are aimed at beginners, will be run by staff at West Sussex Record Office in Chichester throughout 2014. The workshops will be held at 10am on the first Wednesday of each month, starting on 8 January with an introduction to reading old handwriting. On 5 February, participants will be introduced to the popular family history websites, Ancestry and Findmypast, used by celebrities on the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? series and available free-ofcharge at the Record Office. Further sessions will look at the range of archive sources available at the Record Office, which date from as early as

780AD, and how best to use them for family history research. West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member Lionel Barnard, who is responsible for the Record Office, said: "These sessions were extremely popular this year so we’re running them again in 2014. They’re great for anyone who is new to family history and wants to find out what resources are available and how best to use them.” Anyone interested in signing up for a workshop is advised to book early by calling 01243 753602 or e-mailing records.office@ westsussex.gov.uk. Each session costs £7.50 and includes refreshments. For more information, visit the Record Office website (www.westsussex. gov.uk/ro) and click on ‘outreach and events’.

In West Sussex the risk of flooding may come from rivers, coastal water, surface water and water hidden in the ground. Due to climate change the risk of flooding will increase as sea levels rise, winter rainfall increases and flash storms become more frequent.

Trust marks new chapter for music making in West Sussex A NEW charitable trust will take over the running of music services in West Sussex from next week. Called ‘West Sussex Music’ the trust will have its headquarters at the Herbert Shiner School in Petworth. As a not-for-profit charitable trust it will take on the responsibility for 180 teaching staff and providing music lessons for 18,000 pupils in the county’s colleges and schools. The County Council’s music service goes back over 50 years and has established an excellent reputation for making music. The decision to transfer responsibility to a trust was taken in order to secure the long term future of the service and to open up new and exciting opportunities.

Existing teaching staff will be retained and will transfer to the Trust. Pupils will not notice any difference as far as their teaching and lessons are concerned. Peter Evans, West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for the Music Service said: “The creation of West Sussex Music marks a new and exciting chapter in a county which has an unrivalled reputation and a long tradition in making music. “I am sure the Trust will continue to build upon an enviable legacy. The advantage of being an independent charitable company will enable it to introduce new and exciting initiatives.” James Underwood, the Chief Executive of West Sussex Music,

said: “We will continue to ensure that every child in West Sussex has access to high quality music education. Our staff and tutors will work with enthusiasm and dedication to meet the needs of all young musicians and the aims of the government’s National Plan for Music Education. “We will work closely with schools, parents and partner organisations to maintain a vibrant and varied programme throughout the county. “Alongside the high quality teaching from our talented staff we will seek to organise, throughout the year, a wide range of musical opportunities and events to suit all ability levels and tastes.”

This means more people will be at risk more often. Flood protection measures are in place in many areas across the county, however the risk of flooding cannot be completely eliminated, nor can flood damage be entirely prevented.

West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Pieter Montyn, said: “Floods turn lives upside down, which is unfortunately what happened to people in parts of West Sussex last summer. “Flooding is a complex and

unpredictable problem, so residents must prepare themselves and their homes against the threat of it happening.” For more information visit www. westsussex.gov.uk/flooding or follow @WSCCNews on Twitter #floodaware.

Down on the farm Tudor-style

WHEN AN AWARD-WINNING ‘living history’ film-making team wanted to recreate an authentic portrayal of life on a 16thcentury Tudor Monastery Farm for a new BBC television series they headed off to the Sussex countryside for inspiration.

And they found the perfect backdrop in the stunning medieval setting of the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum at Singleton near Chichester, where more than 50 rescued historic buildings fill the landscape, bringing the past to life. Lion Television, which produces

the series for BBC Two, has been filming at the 50acre West Sussex site for the last six months, compiling six hour-long programmes plus a Christmas special. The programmes will follow the daily domestic lives of the three copresenters, historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Peter Ginn and Tom Pinfold, as they recreate the challenges facing country folk who did the bulk of the farming and craftwork on Tudor monastery lands. Ruth and Peter have become household favourites since the huge success of previous living history farm series, which have recreated life on Victorian, Edwardian and wartime farms. The award-winning programmes have even attracted an

international audience and spawned a string of best-selling books. This time they are donning Tudor costume as the clock is turned back to 1500 and the reign of Henry VII. From sheep farming and harvesting to fashioning a printing press and building a Tudor clock, the trio have been put through their paces to give viewers an authentic peep into life in the home and on the farm. The series will also explore the intricacies of the social structure of the period, examining the relationship between the farm, its lay workforce and the wider monastic community. Lion TV Executive Producer David Upshal said the programmes were “have a go” history. “It’s about what life would have been like for the likes of you and me – ordinary people getting through day-to-day challenges of what to eat, what to wear, how to ward off sickness and how to maintain a home; the more pressing basics of human survival.” Museum Director Richard Pailthorpe revealed that he first suggested filming a series about Tudor farming at the Museum a

couple of years ago to presenter Ruth Goodman, who is a regular visitor and has run courses on period clothing there. “Our buildings have a strong focus on the Tudor period, especially Bayleaf, our iconic 15thcentury Wealden hall house from Chiddingstone in Kent,” he said. “Over the last 20 years we have also developed a farmstead that would be typical of the early 1500’s. It’s the perfect backdrop for filming of this kind.” Several other of the Museum’s buildings will also feature in the series, and their authenticity meant that few changes were required. But it isn’t only the buildings that will make an appearance. Many members of staff and Museum volunteers donned historic costumes to take part. “It will be strange watching the finished film, but it’s a great showcase for the museum and we’re hoping it will create a lot of interest,” said Mr Pailthorpe. Tudor Monastery Farm starts on BBC Two on Wednesday 13th November at 9pm with a Christmas Special to be confirmed.

New service to support the 80,000 carers in West Sussex CARERS living in West Sussex who look after family or friends who are ill or frail will now have access to a new service to help them improve their own health and wellbeing. There are an estimated six million unpaid carers in the UK and 80,000 are based in West Sussex. Carers provide essential care and support for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. They often carry out tasks and responsibilities that can compromise the health of both the carer and the cared for and impact on quality of life. Our Carers Health Team can visit carers in their own home and check their general state of health and wellbeing. They can offer advice about how to keep healthy and how to manage any health issues. This new service, available to all carers aged over 18 across West Sussex, is staffed by trained health professionals who work closely with other NHS specialist services and ensure health screening and where appropriate access to NHS health checks are available for all.

Olympians awarded scholarships from University of Chichester OLYMPIANS and athletes studying at the University of Chichester have been awarded scholarships to help combine their academic work and sporting careers. The group, which include London 2012 competitors and junior world champions, will receive financial support for travel to competitions and free physiotherapy in the event of injuries. As part of the Gifted Athlete Programme scholars will also work with experts from the University’s Sport and Exercise Sciences Department, who have previously assisted America’s Cup winner Ben Ainslie and world champion boxer Amir Khan. Athletes are selected each year by the University and its Students’ Union based on future potential or regional, national, or international standard in their sport.

MOVEMBER is back with the Nuffield Health Chichester Pros growing their Mo’s and educating men locally about what they need to know about…

STAFF from the Nuffield Health Chichester Hospital, Fitness & Wellbeing Centre, and The West Sussex Urology group have joined forces to raise even more money for Movember and crucially educate local men about important

men’s health issues and niggles they shouldn’t ignore. Not only will the teams be growing their moustaches to get people talking, they will be holding an educational event, open to all, and hosted by urologist Dr

James Hicks (and his moustache) at 7.30pm on Tuesday 26th November at the Nuffield Fitness and Wellbeing centre, Chichester Gate, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 8EL The event is free to attend and will include an informal talk to raise awareness of men’s health and what every man should know. People attending are welcome to stick around afterwards and make use of the facilities and talk to the team. Consultant X stated: “We want to get involved and show support for Movember by raising awareness of prostate and testicular cancer as well as important mental health issues. We want our patients and people of Chichester to be better informed and understand the

symptoms as well as the dangers of leaving a diagnosis too late”. As Emily Seex, business manager from Nuffield Health Chichester Hospital observes: “I think it’s worth women knowing about men’s health too, it’s often the persistence of a wife or girlfriend that gets their man to go and get things checked out.” The team at Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing centre is supporting Movember with their Member ‘Mo Challenge’. The club will be repeating the hugely successful competition of last year by finding the best moustache amongst its male members. The Best Mo winner will receive a topto-toe pamper package from their in-house Beauty Rooms ‘Complete Worx’. Lisa Wilson, Sales & Marketing Manager at the club, said: “We are really excited about this year’s competition as it really does bring some fun into raising awareness for such a great cause.” The event is even accessible to non-members who can join the club in Movember with

a complimentary 7 day pass, available by contacting the team on 01243 788678, before the 30th of November. Please quote ‘Mo Challenge’ to claim your 7 day pass.’ Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. Each year in the UK about 36,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. It accounts for 25 per cent of all newly diagnosed cases of cancer in men. The chances of developing prostate cancer increase as you get older. Most cases develop in men aged 70 or older. Testicular cancer affects more than 2,000 men a year in the UK and, although is one of the less common cancers, it is usually found in younger men between the ages of 15 and 44. More than 95 per cent of testicular cancers are successfully treated when diagnosed at stage one, the earliest stage, but this reduces if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

That age-old trick of putting on a hat and frock Allis Moss Writer and broadcaster

A man suspected of terror activities abroad has confounded his minders with a tactic exploited since time immemorial, of dressing up in women’s clothing. Despite security supervision, the man was able to go into a community centre in West London and come out in a burka, a voluminous garment covering the body which also veils the face. In our digital age of GPStagging, it’s a ruse that’s as old as the hills that still seems to work. We aren’t, of course, talking about cross-dressing, closet or celebrated, on stage or in private; as a friend of mine found out when he paid a call on a man he’d known well for more than twenty years and was surprised when the door was opened by mine host in a dress: but gender dissimulation for the purpose of concealing identity and

thwarting pursuers. The famous Pretender to the throne of England and Scotland, Bonnie Prince Charlie, put on a gown and bonnet and pretended to be an Irish maid called Betty Burke, when he fled, as the old song says, over the sea to Skye. History has it the errant prince found the hat uncomfortable. Even the genial Toad of Wind in the Willows resorted to it after he was incarcerated for calling a constable ‘fat face’—at least it

In our digital age of GPStagging, it’s a ruse that’s as old as the hills that still seems to work wasn’t ‘pleb face’—while he was being arrested for driving stolen motor cars very badly. After being slammed in the clink, Toad sashays out with impunity in a washerwoman’s garb, pursued only by the ribald comments of his gaolers. He handsomely rewards the washer woman (whom he has tied up to affect a struggle) for the loan of her skirts. The roll-call of women donning men’s gear, both real life and fictional, is just as celebrated, from Joan of Arc in her chain mail

to Shakespeare’s Rosalind to Yentl. Or ‘Sleeping With the Enemy’, where Julia Roberts puts on a false moustache to visit her mum while on the run. Remember, it nearly comes off as she’s drinking from a water fountain—and horrible hubby is just down the corridor? Majority Report A false beard or genuine facial hair could be the best protection for anyone looking like Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, from soon being bombarded with ads for Tena Lady Plus at petrol stations. Tesco is introducing facial scanning on its forecourts to target advertising. Not iris recognition like in Minority Report—where Tom Cruise walks furtively past billboards with borrowed eyes, as every hoarding screams at his stolen identity to buy. This will be just your basic scanning to determine our age and gender, using long hair to identify us as male or female. Smile you’re on camera! We’re already being snapped all the time, by satellites from space and caught on closed-circuit camera in the street, more often than a B-list

celebrity in a reality show. Gender X Australia did it and so has New Zealand. Germany has become the first in Europe not to insist on a baby being registered male or female. Good news for the one person in 2,000 born with traits of both sexes; the new law should avoid such babies and others, who have tragically sustained injuries, from being surgically remodelled to fit legal requirements. Conspiracy or coincidence? Last week that Janus, conspiracy or coincidence, made an appearance in this column. It was the case of an evening class where everyone’s dog was spookily called one of two names. Probably because people who like—cooking Italian food— pottery—fill in the blank—have a similar taste in dogs’ names. Herald reader, Mike, got in touch with his own ‘coincidence’. Instead of a canine master plan, this was a diabolic attempt to infiltrate the game of snooker, as played in pubs and working men’s clubs up Contact Allis:

and down the land. Here we go. In a mini tournament, with Mike’s club competing against another, our Mike found himself playing… Mike. In the next match, Chris was playing Chris. Then Paul was playing Paul. Finally Dom was playing Dom. “It was very confusing,” says Mike, “particularly when team mates were calling out encouragement!” And finally … …those dastardly men in their flying machines, the chief execs of the Big Six, say trust is a problem. Not surprising really, with questions being asked about whether suppliers are producing energy then selling it on for more to their own or each others’ retail sections, with a knock-on effect on customers. Top dog at British Gas-owner Centrica, Sam Laidlaw, has volunteered to pass up his performance-related bonus this winter. It was a couple of million last year. The way things are going generally, it’s going to be less about regaining trust and more about dressing up as a washer woman.

Go Wild with Ed

Well-known author visits Portfield Primary Academy for special workshop

Birds As mentioned last month it looks like Dark-bellied Brent Geese have had a good breeding year. ‘Baby’ brents can be identified by white stripes on their wing feathers. They are already venturing onto inland fields to graze, which is where you can make a real contribution to their conservation. Through the Goosewatch Scheme you can help us monitor which fields are in use. Enter your sightings and get further information at www.conservancy. co.uk/page/goose-watch/380/ All the expected birds are back in good numbers including huge numbers of Wigeon and Blacktailed Godwit. Some less expected species included a juvenile Osprey after the October storm and a Semipalmated Plover, a North American species similar in appearance to a Ringed Plover. Mammals The Harbour Seal population are completely unphased by the approaching winter. Their thick layer of fat will protect them from pretty much anything the British

PUPILS from Years Five and Six at Portfield Primary Academy in Chichester received a special treat last Thursday when popular local author Giles Paley-Phillips popped in to host a workshop with the children. Each term, Portfield Primary Academy hosts a creative and engaging whole school learning theme. The autumn term’s theme is ‘Once Upon a Time’, which has seen the school transformed into a magical storytelling wonderland – classrooms have been turned into scenes from famous stories including Alice in Wonderland, King Arthur and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Giles, who hails from Seaford in East Sussex, has written a series of successful children’s books and is even preparing for one of the most popular titles, The Fearsome Beastie, to be turned into a feature film voiced by actor Brian Blessed. He said: “It was great to see the childrens’ enthusiasm and there are definitely some budding young writers at the school. I think it is tremendously important that children are reminded about the

winter can throw at them! The maximum count of seals has increased again to 26 individuals seen at the main haul-out site. Insects With the mild conditions some hardy insects are still on the wing during sunny periods, but frosts will soon diminish most insect activity. The exceptions are some species of moth. The variety and number of moths do decrease in the winter months but species continuing to emerge include the aptly named November and Autumnal Moths. Plants Apart from Ivy not much is now flowering. Colour is provided by berries and the changing of leaf colour prior to shedding by deciduous trees. The Oaks are just starting to turn golden brown, Field Maple bright yellow and Guelder Rose, red. Despite the storm at the end of October there is still a lot of leaf on trees, but soon enough they will drop leaving just the skeletal branches.

need to spend time reading and writing and it was a pleasure to be invited by Portfield Primary Academy to host a workshop with the pupils.” During the workshop pupils learnt about how Giles became an author, including his inspirations to start writing, before making a story plan of their own. He also read extracts from his books including The Fearsome Beastie, Tamara Small and the Monsters' Ball and Things You Never Knew about Dinosaurs.

Playful young cats need New AONB manager appointed a new world to explore Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre

Our Halloween rehoming day was a big success, in fact it was our best rehoming day so far. We had about 20 cats reserved, most of which have now already gone to their forever homes. The next rehoming day is on the 23rd of November between 12-2pm. It will be the last rehoming day this year, if you’re interested in adopting a cat why not come along. Km143-13 and Km144-13 are gorgeous brothers that have been with us since they were 8 weeks old. They are now 6 months old and have been waiting patiently for a new home. They arrived with us on the 30th June 2013 because their owner had too many animals and could no longer cope with looking after them. The last two of their litter they are really close if they’re not playing with each other then they’re cuddled up asleep together. These beautiful friendly boys have spent so much of their kitten life in a pen that they are now desperate to have a new home with more space to play and an outside world to explore. Hundreds of cats and kittens

are waiting for homes now. The Rescue asks for a minimum donation of £45 for each neutered cat or older kitten which includes vaccination, flea and worm preventative treatment, microchipping and Free PetPlan vet insurance for 4 weeks. An un-neutered younger kitten is £70 including a free neutering voucher (to be neutered at The Centre) for when the kitten is old enough. Homing by appointment 7 days a week.

CHICHESTER HARBOUR CONSERVANCY has announced the appointment of the new Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Manager, Dr. Richard Austin. Richard brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in protected area management. Richard was brought-up in Hampshire and visited Chichester Harbour throughout his childhood. Since then, his career has taken him all over England, learning about the policy and practice of environmental management. His last post was at Northumberland National Park, where he spent over seven years working in conservation. During this time he developed a portfolio of environmental achievements, including supervising over 250 sustainable development fund initiatives and working closely with the Heritage Lottery Fund on the proposed development of a new visitor centre on Hadrian’s Wall. Outside of work, he successfully completed his doctorate on rural partnership working at Newcastle University. Richard said: “Chichester Harbour AONB is a special place.

It is a valuable resource for South East England, rich in its distinctive qualities, making this environment of national and international importance. It is an exciting time to be joining Chichester Harbour Conservancy. Next year we will publish our five-year management plan for the future, which will enable all our partners to help us to look after this protected area. Meanwhile, we will also be celebrating 2014 as our 50th anniversary of being an AONB.” Pieter Montyn, Conservancy Chairman said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Richard at an exciting and challenging time for environmental issues in the harbour. We have a demanding programme ahead of us and Richard’s appointment will bring new ideas and opportunities.” Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is one of 33 AONBs in England. An AONB is an area of high scenic quality

which has statutory protection in order to conserve and enhance the natural beauty of its landscape. Chichester Harbour AONB is one of the few remaining undeveloped coastal areas in Southern England. Its bright wide flat expanses and intricate creeks are a major wildlife haven and some of the most popular boating waters.

Paul lifts Cup CHICHESTER and District Society of Model Engineers held their annual ‘Bits and Pieces’ evening. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of The Page Cup; this year the winner, voted for by the members, was Paul East, of Bognor. Mr East showed a ‘former’, for shaping the front of a model steam locomotive that he is building; and a Locomotive Lifting Table, so that he could raise his heavy locomotive and work underneath it in safety. Mr East was up against stiff competition from other model engineers, who showed: a model of a fully enclosed steam drive unit for use on ships and in mines, and in similar confined spaces; a boiler for a model locomotive; and a description of a way of one driver could drive two locomotives on a heavy train. The evening was a chance for constructors to show off their skills; and to keep other members up to date with each other’s projects. The Page Cup was given by Laurie Page, a founder member of Chichester and District Society of Model Engineers; and has been

National News Dog attack girl our 'shining star' News in Brief Follow us on Twitter

@chiherald

THE FAMILY of a four-year-old mauled to death by a pet dog have described her as "a bubbly, bright little girl" who "fought for her life from the moment she was born". Lexi Branson died despite the desperate attempts of her mother Jodie Hudson to halt the attack at their flat in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, family friends said. In a statement, Ms Hudson and Lexi's grandmother Kerry Hudson said: "There's been a tragedy in the family. Lexi was a bubbly, bright little girl. She fought for her life from the moment she was born as she was born 3 months prematurely. She's been taken from us so tragically. "She will be sadly missed, she will be our shining star in the sky and she we will never be forgotten." Neighbours said the family had the dog for only around two months after picking it up from a local rescue centre. Lexi was rushed to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre but doctors were unable to save her. Family friends said Ms Hudson had been told the dog was safe around children. The animal apparently attacked Lexi without provocation. According to unconfirmed reports, Lexi's mum stabbed the dog to try and stop the attack. Police confirmed that the dog died shortly after the attack, which was reported to the emergency services at 12.14pm.

In a statement , Leicestershire Police said: "Investigations are continuing into the circumstances that led to a four-year-old girl being attacked and killed by the family dog. "Tests are being carried out today to establish the exact breed of the dog but at this stage it is not believed to be a breed listed under Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act." The fatal incident took place in Rowena Court, a cul-de-sac containing small blocks of flats. Glennis Goddard, who has lived in the street for 27 years, said of Lexi: "She was a sweet little thing and used to run round here on a bike and knock on my windows. "She used to play with our cats, outside. She wasn't very big, only a little thin thing. It's a terrible shock." Ms Goddard said the dog had been no trouble at all previously and could not understand why it had apparently turned. She said she had been stroking the dog just two days ago after seeing it out with Ms Hudson. "Something must have snapped him," she said. Ms Goddard's partner and carer, Oliver Temperell, said: "She had a little pink scooter and she'd go round and round the flats. "She'd come up to our flat, tap on the window. "She was very happy, everything was fun - as it is when you're a fouryear-old." Arthur Nash, another

Twin Towers fancy dress students condemned TWO students who dressed as the Twin Towers in a fancy dress competition have been condemned by university and students' union bosses. University of Chester students Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, both 19, won the Halloween competition at a nightclub in Chester. Their outfits depicted flames and explosions during the 11 September 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. They apologised for causing offence, which they said "was not intended". The University of Chester and Chester Students' Union said they "utterly condemn the appalling photos which have been shared on social media".

neighbour, said: "Everybody is in shock at the moment. "When I saw an ambulance pull up, I thought it was an old lady on the court who had had a heart attack, and then the neighbour came up and said she had been killed by the dog." Angela McGlynn, mother of fouryear-old John-Paul Massey, who died in Liverpool in November 2009 after he was savaged by his uncle's dog, said the girl's death had raised painful memories. "It brings everything back straight back to day one all over again," she told ITV Daybreak. "I would like to send out my sincere sympathies to Lexi's family because I know exactly what they are going through." She renewed her calls for all dogs to be muzzled around children under 12.

"My campaign is to raise pet awareness, to let people know that these family pets do just turn the way they do and it's not just about breed, or just the dogs on the dangerous dogs list," she said. "The Government are putting some steps in place ... but we can't just rely on the Government - parents and adults have to take steps too." Orchard Kennels and Cattery, in Barrow-upon-Soar, confirmed that the family had got the dog from them. A spokesman, who did not want to be named, said he could not comment any further while the police investigation was ongoing. Flowers and balloons were left by well-wishers outside the flat. The flat remains cordoned off, with uniformed police officers on guard outside.

County Council Cabinet Member responsible for Trading Standards. “We will be able to provide other regulators with evidence of compliance, helping the business to reduce costs and avoid the need to deal with multiple regulators” Loretta Strong, Compliance & Client Liaison Director for Arun Estates, said: “We are committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service to ensure that their dream move runs as smoothly as possible and believe that this starts with responsible and compliant working practices. The Primary Authority Partnership will allow us to seek advice on any aspect of the regulations governing our industry which can only benefit our business and customers.

Leading businesswomen inspire young women to become next high-flyers TOP businesswomen from across the UK will visit the University of Chichester next week to encourage young women to become the country's next high-flyers. Senior female leaders from global businesses and brands, including Deloitte and Accenture, will be speaking to more than 150 West Sussex and Hampshire pupils on Wednesday 13 November at the University’s Enterprising Women Conference. The event is part of the institution’s ongoing focus of raising aspiration and aims to encourage young women to consider new career possibilities and reach their full potential. From its early days as a training college for female teachers in the 19th Century, the University has a heritage of intervention in debates about female equality. Female industry leaders from the public and private sectors, including Brita Fernandez Schmidt, head of human rights organisation Women for Women International, will present their own successes in a bid to inspire the pupils. Deputy Vice-Chancellor Sarah Gilroy, who will be opening the

conference, said: “This is a great chance to inspire a new generation of young women by encouraging them to consider careers they may never have thought of before. “There is a broad spectrum of leading businesswomen, each working within the highest levels of their organisations, who will be speaking at the event. “This is an ideal opportunity for the students, who are all aged between 14 and 16 years old, to meet with them and learn from their experiences in the workplace.” The event will begin with a networking breakfast for the pupils, who will then get a chance to quiz the guests about their roles within their organisations, before identifying their own skills and potential future jobs. It is also timed to coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week, held each year between November 18 and 24, which encourages young people to start their own businesses.

VERITAS PROCUREMENT SERVICES, the Chichester based health and social care consultancy, hosted an evening of networking for Chichester Chamber of Commerce members, where Phil Packer MBE inspired the business audience with his story and vision for the British Inspiration Trust. Veritas works with private and public sector companies to improve their disability equipment services with the main focus being on the end user of the equipment. For people facing adversity in their lives, the aim of all equipment services is to make things as easy and comfortable as possible for them in their homes. Richard Nicholson, Managing Director of Veritas Procurement Services, explained the importance of evaluating needs from the perspective of the patient, rather than from a standard criteria list which many commissioning groups and hospitals have, regardless of the equipment needed by the end user. Richard then introduced Phil

Packer MBE, who explained his journey as a young person, how he was injured on operational duty and his experiences of coming to terms with both the physical and emotional traumas. He went on to describe why he founded The British Inspiration Trust and his vision for the BRIT centre, to be built in Sussex, for young people aged 16-25 facing adversity. Richard Nicholson states: “Every person is different in their needs and attitude to the disability and requirements they have. It’s important for hospitals

and equipment service companies not to forget that we’re dealing with people who are more often than not, going through a very challenging time. For Phil to share his journey with us is humbling and I know many in the audience were inspired by his attitude. Not many would face the same challenge with the positivity and determination he has.” Veritas is speaking with Phil about how it may be able to help identify, commission and procure disability equipment for the BRIT centre.

Farmers’ market moves to more central location in Emsworth

THE POPULAR Hampshire Farmers’ Market will be moving location in December from its current site at Palmers Road Car Park (the location of the HFM November market) - to the more central South Street car park location on 14th December, which will be the Christmas Festival Market with an extended market running until 3pm.

traditional Christmas food and drink available including mince pies, meat, chutney, wine, beer, cider, as well as soup, fish, bread, fruit, vegetables and non-food produce such as lavender products and candles. “Visitors to the new market location will be able to see, sample and savour our huge range of local produce that they can enjoy over the festive season knowing that it is locally produced and fully traceable,” commented Alex Handford, HFM Business Manager. The Hampshire Farmers’ Markets is a community interest, not-for-profit organisation holding regular markets across Hampshire that provides numerous far reaching benefits, with additional employment created and money kept within the local economy, as well as the reduced impact on the environment. “Our market stall holders aim to provide really good value, particularly in these times when everyone is watching their food spend.

surprised by the great value and savings they find from the reduced ‘food miles’ and no middle man, passed onto the consumer. We also have regular producer offers on our website and on the day, giving our visitors a really costeffective and vibrant shopping experience with a wider choice of interesting local products” continued Alex Handford. “The success of our markets is due to the enthusiasm and dedication of our many awardwinning suppliers, as well as the growing interest in buying locally produced seasonal food” concluded Alex Handford.

Chichester Business Selsey Business How West Sussex businesses are Awards invites more entries bidding to 'Be The Business' Follow us on Twitter

@chiherald

A NEW West Sussex County Council initiative called ‘Be The Business’ designed to boost the economy has got off to a successful start. More than 100 businesses have applied for funding to either start-up their business or grow an existing one. Businesses were invited to bid for a maximum of £30,000, which has to be match funded. There is a total pot of £600,000 available to fund micro, small and medium enterprises in West Sussex. Applications have come from a wide range of sectors ranging from leisure and outdoor activities to manufacturing, publishing and digital. There is also an exciting mix of start-ups looking to create new and innovative businesses, as well as those with a strong desire to grow and expand existing businesses. West Sussex County Council Leader Louise Goldsmith said: “There has been a really positive response to this new initiative and

it bodes well for the economy of our county. “The number and range of applications shows a real aspiration from businesses to grow, with many looking to create new jobs as well as retain existing ones.” A decision on which applications have been successful is expected before the end of the year. West Sussex County Council launched the ‘Be the Business’ programme in August, and it is funded by the Kick Start programme. It includes business support activities, grants to employers to take on Higher Apprentices and a Business Start-up and Grow grant scheme.

Louise said: “The aim of ‘Be The Business’ is to drive the levels of entrepreneurship, productivity and employment growth in our county, and we want it to be a major contributor to our economic strategy between now and 2020.” The key aims of the strategy are: • making West Sussex a first class business location; • creating a highly competitive economy and business population;

• higher levels of business concentrations; • creating a higher number of accessible jobs that offer a variety of careers for all ages of residents; • sustainable living and working communities; and • high levels of investment and levered funding.

Chichester College has set up a free Law Clinic evening for local residents struggling to get legal advice and support at a cost of nothing CHICHESTER College and the Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) have recognised the growing demand in legal advice and the lack of financial help available for members of the public and have decided to put a stop to this issue. The two organisations have set up a new free legal advice service called ‘The Chichester Evening Law Clinic’. With the support of law firms such as Thomas Eggar, Glanvilles and the LK Family Law, local Chichester residents can receive free impartial advice from experts in the industry for free. Since the Chancellor announced the Government’s cuts to legal aid funding, the Nation’s access to justice has been slowly chipped away. With the funding cuts in place, law firms and centres such as the CAB are under pressure to offer the same services, yet with

less financial backing and greater demand. This has a direct negative impact on people’s ability to gain the advice and support that they need in often difficult, stressful and sometimes harrowing situations. The Legal Advice Clinic serves the Chichester district and surrounding areas. Having been found recently, it has already served a number of clients, usually dealing with matters on the night. The original idea came from a Chichester College employee, Will Chalmers – Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer, who is studying Law himself. He said: “I believe Chichester was in need of voluntary legal advice, especially in light of the recent legal aid cuts. However, I must reiterate that the concept could only become a reality with the support of the College, partner organisations and the CAB.” The clinic covers employment, family, poverty, wills and probate,

civil litigations, debt and consumer advice. Each client has a free, impartial and confidential thirty minute session with a lawyer. The aim of the clinic is to provide enough advice to sign-post clients towards the right direction and decisions. Some legal matters can be fairly complex and one session may not be enough, therefore the Clinic allows up to three sessions for each problem. Chichester College Principal, Shelagh Legrave, is pleased to be working with such well-known organisations, she said: “We hope that this continues to serve the community well and that people have the access to legal support when they need it the most.” The Clinic runs twice a month and sessions are booked in advance. If you think you may want some advice, or know someone who may benefit, then please make contact with your local CAB or

Thor sequal is smashing for Marvel fans Thor: The Dark World (12A) Running time: 112 mins Director: Alan Taylor Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman

Enormously entertaining superhero sequel that delivers thrills, laughs and emotion in equal measure, thanks to a witty script, superb performances, thrilling action sequences and assured direction from Alan Taylor that gets the tone exactly right. What’s it all about? Directed by Alan Taylor, Thor: The Dark World is the sequel to 2011’s Marvel superhero blockbuster, picking up where 2012’s The Avengers left off: Thor’s evil foster brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is imprisoned on Asgard for his crimes on Earth

while Thor (Chris Hemsworth) himself has restored peace to the Nine Realms. Meanwhile, on Earth, Thor’s girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) has encountered evidence of a dimensional anomaly and accidentally absorbs a powerful substance known as The Aether, which, in turn, awakens a race of vengeful Dark Elves lead by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston),

who intends to use The Aether to bring destruction to the Nine Realms (Earth included). Thor duly transports Jane to Asgard to protect her, but his plan backfires when the Dark Elves come looking for The Aether and mount a devastating attack on Asgard. In desperation, Thor turns to Loki and asks for his help in defeating Malekith. But can Loki be trusted?

The Good Hemsworth is terrific as Thor, exuding both powerful physicality and a winning charm laced with warmth and humour; he also generates palpable chemistry with each of his co-stars, from Hopkins’ Odin and Hiddleston to Portman and Jamie Alexander’s Sif (a potential love triangle that disappointingly goes nowhere). Portman, in turn, is pleasingly feisty as Jane, while Hiddleston once again steals the entire film with a wonderful, emotionally complex performance that allows you to glimpse the pain and heartache underneath the scheming, trickery and wisecracks (he gets all the best lines). The supporting cast are equally good, particularly the ever-fabulous Kat Dennings as Jane’s assistant Darcy (who gets slightly more to do this time round and, amusingly, still can’t pronounce Mjolnir), Jonathan Howard (as Darcy’s put-upon

intern Ian) and, in a brief, but effective cameo, Chris O’Dowd as Jane’s date Richard. The Great It would be churlish to suggest that director Alan Taylor landed the job purely because of his work on Game of Thrones, but that experience is certainly notable, not least because he gets the tone exactly right, expertly balancing thrills, laugh-out-loud humour, darker themes and powerful emotion. Similarly, the effects are excellent and the fight sequences are both genuinely exciting and inventively staged, particularly during the action-packed Londonset climax that uses its Greenwich locations to imaginative effect. Worth seeing? This is a Thor-oughly (sorry) enjoyable, emotionally engaging sequel that delivers thrills, spectacle and laughs in equal measure. Highly recommended.

Mercury will make a brief appearance in the pre-dawn sky mid-month low down in the SE. Venus will dominate the western sky at the start of November presenting a lovely crescent shape in good binoculars or small telescope before it gets properly dark and setting almost three hours after the Sun. The red planet Mars is another pre-dawn object moving from Leo to Virgo throughout the month. Giant Jupiter is the bright 'star' in the east rising around 19:30 in the constellation of Gemini, its apparent diameter and brightness increasing all the time. Saturn, although faint, can be seen low down in the morning sky and will be very close to Mercury on the 26th. Uranus and Neptune are in the

S and SW respectively but are not easy targets. The Moon again can act as a guide to finding three planets this month. The crescent Moon is close to Venus on the 6th, close to Jupiter on the 21/22nd and near Mars on the 27th. The first peak of the Taurid meteor shower is favourable a couple of days either side of the 13th with a rate of around 10 an hour from fairly high in the SE. We MAY be treated to a naked eye Comet very soon. Hundreds of small comets travel through space and around the Sun every year and it is notoriously difficult to predict their brightness. When Comet ISON was first discovered it looked promising but we will have to wait until the end of November/beginning of December, shortly after sunset, to find out.

create a relaxed atmosphere that is child friendly and welcoming to all, our waiter for the evening was very attentive and knowledgeable and made some great recommendations on menu choice. Whilst the menu selection is varied, it is not complex or ostentatious. The food lives up to the Bill’s premise of ‘Fresh, Seasonal, smile-on-your-face food’. Their seasonal pumpkin risotto offers a hearty vegetarian alternative mixing rich blue cheese, light peppery rocket and large chunks of fresh pumpkin with citrus notes. Bill’s chorizo scotch egg is a must offering a perfectly seasoned crisp shell and gooey centre cooked using the chefs secret method, as well as a warming Dijon mayonnaise and watercress garnish. To finish, we fully recommend Bill’s sticky toffee pudding. A culmination of fresh and creamy

malted banana and honeycomb ice cream with a fluffy velvet sponge, accompanied by a rich toffee sauce. The house red is a smooth and silky French blended merlot, whilst the Hedgerow fizz offers a light alternative using Bill’s very own home-made elderflower cordial mixed with sparkling white wine for a perfect thirst quencher. There’s also a varied choice of soft drinks including milkshakes, smoothies and juices. Their market store downstairs sells preserves, beverages and other produce served on the menu

to take away and enjoy at home. Booking is recommended, particularly at weekends. Bookings are already being taken for their Christmas menu which will run from 28th November until 24th December featuring festive classics with a classic Bill’s twist.

Families struggling to buy fresh food MANY young families cut back on fresh fruit and vegetables and switched to less healthy processed food as the recession squeezed budgets, a UK study of 15,000 households' data suggests. It showed rising food prices and stagnating wages had led people to buy less food and choose cheaper products. The Institute for Fiscal Studies said pensioners, single parent households and families had the biggest drop in the nutritional quality of their diets. Food campaigners expressed concern. The Children's Food Trust said the move to processed food was a "huge worry". The report's authors used food purchasing data from 15,850 British households from 2005 to 2012, enabling them to analyse the impact on spending of the recession. They found that households spent 8.5% less on food in real terms across the period as disposable incomes failed to keep pace with rising food prices. People also swapped the type of food they bought, shifting from fresh fruit and vegetables to "calorie dense" processed food, with a resulting increase in saturated fat and sugar content, the Food

Expenditure and Nutritional Quality over the Great Recession report said. Food prices rose by 33% between 2007 and 2013, official figures show. Butter, meat and fruit prices all increased by more than average while processed food rose by 28%. The IFS researchers found that on every measure, pensioner households, single parents and families with young children experienced a worse-than-average decline in nutritional quality. Pensioners tended to increase their purchases of fatty foods while households with young children chose more sugary products. IFS research economist Kate Smith, one of the authors of the report, said: "Over the recession households have responded to higher food prices and the squeezes on their incomes by switching to cheaper calories. "This has coincided with a fall in the nutritional quality of foods purchased, with moves away from fresh fruit and vegetables and towards processed foods. As a result, the average saturated fat and sugar content of food purchases has increased over this period." Children's Food Trust chief executive Linda Cregan said:

"Feeding children well is absolutely crucial for their future health these figures are an indication of just how tough this has become for many families in recent years. "Some of the trends in this report are a huge worry - we need to see the foods children eat containing less saturated fat, salt and sugar, not more." A second report from the IFS, looked at longer term trends. Between 1980 and 2009, households bought 15% to 30% fewer calories, but average weight continued to climb. During this time there was a big rise in snacking and eating out, but an even bigger fall in calories bought for the home during the 30-year period. "We were surprised to find that there has been a substantial decline in total calories purchased at a time when obesity has increased," said one of this study's authors Melanie Luhrmann. "This does not mean that poor diet plays no part in rising obesity. But understanding the interaction between diet and physical activity is clearly crucial." Both reports are being presented as part of the Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science in London.

The link between fermented foods and improved digestion

Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lacto fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics. Natural fermentation of foods has also been shown to preserve nutrients in food and break the food down to a more digestible form. This, along with the bevy of probiotics created during the fermentation process, could explain the link between consumption of fermented foods and improved digestion. Cultures around the world have been eating fermented foods for years, from Sauerkraut in Germany to Kimichi in Korea and everywhere in between. Sadly, with the advances in

Denise Kelly technology and food preparation, these time-honored traditional foods have been largely lost in our society. Having yoghurt, or the commercial healthy bacteria drinks, are not always the best way to get the good bacteria into the gut, and they are often loaded with sugars and unnecessary ingredients. You can eat millions of helpful bacteria in different naturally fermented plant forms. Fermented soy foods are miso, tamari, nama, shoyu, shoyu and tempeh. It’s really important that you look for

Probiotics Probiotics are organisms such as bacteria or yeast that are believed to improve health. The idea of taking live bacteria or yeast may seem strange at first, after all, we take antibiotics to fight bacteria. But our bodies naturally team

unpasteurized on the label so you know the bacteria are still alive. In fermentation, the soybean is changed radically and becomes easy to digest, unlike factoryproduced soya products such as soymilk. Miso, tamari, nama shoyu and shoyu are delicious condiments, but go gently to avoid having an unhealthy amount of salt. Miso is a salty savory paste with a complex interesting taste that is wonderful in sauces and soups. Sweet white and sweet brown miso are fermented for a shorter time and have a lighter, sweeter taste than the darker brown aged miso. Tamari was traditionally the liquid from the top of the jars of fermenting miso and should be wheat free. Nama shoyu and shoyu are fermented in a similar way, but from a mixture of soya beans and wheat. Tempeh is a cake of fermented soybeans

with such organisms. The digestive system is home to more than 500 different types of bacteria. They help keep the intestines healthy and assist in digesting food. They are also believed to help the immune system.

Fashion & Lifestyle Parents embarrass children twice a day Parents embarrass their children 14 times a week, a study has revealed. Researchers found that the average youngster is left red-faced twice a day by their parents’ comments, fashion sense and even the car they drive. An unlucky one in ten even claim they have to put up with their mum or dad’s embarrassing behaviour at least five times per day. In fact, one in five are so ashamed of their parents that they avoid inviting friends over when they know mum or dad are at home, while one in ten completely ignore them when they are out in public together. It also emerged that Katie Price, who has just given birth to her fourth child Jett Riviera, has been named the most embarrassing celebrity mum. Prime Minister David Cameron was also among the most embarrassing dads, coming second behind Ozzy Osbourne. The study of 2,000 children aged 10-17 found that 71% often feel embarrassed by their parents, with the things they say most likely to leave their offspring red-faced. A third of children cringe at their parents’ music tastes, while another one in three is ashamed by their dance moves. One in four can’t stand their parents’ dress sense, while 16% are embarrassed at how strict they are.

Cuddles come top when it comes to the little things that cheer us up Modern men now enjoy a cheeky cuddle as much as women do, new research has revealed. A detailed study found far from being macho characters who hide their feelings, most men are now happy to admit they frequently need a cuddle amid their busy lifestyles and hectic work schedules. Other things which men now turn to in the hour of need are music, fresh air and a get together with friends. As well as the above, women also admitted they reach for a cup of tea when they are glum, while chatting to a friend on the phone and watching their favourite TV programme also featured highly. Overall the figures show we are more likely to flick the kettle on than opt for an alcoholic drink to cheer us up. The study into the little things that improve our mood was carried out among 5,000 adults by AXA. Spokesman Chris Jones, said: “We know it’s the little things that mean a lot to people – we often make assumptions that grand gestures are how we cheer each other up but this shows that everyday little things are what really make the difference.” And psychologist Donna

Dawson added: “Little things mean a lot in life, and many of them are free: walking outdoors or listening to our favourite music both work by calming us through using our senses of sight, sound, smell and taste. “And heightening our senses can, in turn, lift our spirits, especially on those dark miserable days of winter. “As ‘touch’ is the most powerful sense of them all, this explains why a hug is the number one ‘mood changer’. “When the skin is rubbed, it produces hormones and enzymes that boost the immune system and increase feelings of well-being. Women’s brains are naturally more ‘wired’ to be receptive to touch – which is why they find hugging easier to do than men.” Top of the list of little things that mean a lot was a hug, with 55% of people saying it was their number one seasonal mood improver. Other things to make the top ten included spending one-on-one time with a partner, comfort food

and a call or text from a relative. Of the things that didn’t make the top ten, alcohol came in at 13th place. The traditional hot bath took 15th place and, despite being known to physiologically improve well-being, exercise was down in 16th place in the study. The study also examined the people we turn to on bad days, with 41% of people said their other half provides the most meaningful support. However, men find their partner slightly more supportive than women do with 45% of men, versus

39% of women, stating they are their ultimate cheer-giver. Next in the list came ‘a best friend’, with 10% of men and 16% of women stating that they are their first choice of support. Pets are fifth in the list of ‘people’ we turn to with six per cent of people saying they are their number one confidante. By contrast, Dads are low down on the list, with just 1% of respondents saying they would seek out paternal reassurance when feeling down – this compares to 7% of people who turn to their Mum.

8th - 14th November

Horoscopes from Kimi Aries 21 March – 20 April Physical and artistic change is forecast. Perhaps you’re thinking of redecorating your home or an image change for yourself. Indulge this need to keep reinventing yourself; this satisfies your creative and entrepreneurial urges. You may need to look at time management issues and rescheduling though as you try to balance a heavy work load with home and relationship commitments. Taurus 21 April – 21 May You could be thinking of entering into a new partnership, launching a new product or investing in property. Whatever the legal issue this should turn out to be a good move on your part provided you clearly understand the commitment you have to make. But make time for your loved ones if you want domestic harmony to continue! Gemini 22 May – 21 June Lately money, or lack of it, has been on

your mind. You are wondering how you can fund either your present lifestyle or the large purchase you wish to make. The profit generating schemes you are contemplating are truly innovative and therefore a bit scary. Don’t panic, revisit your ideas, listen objectively to others advice and all will be well! Cancer 22 June – 22 July You need to reign in your emotions a little or you could be in danger of either being bad tempered or worse wearing your heart on your sleeve. You could frighten people away. Don’t undertake any big projects this week but focus instead of the minutiae of those already started. Polished products or performance will bring both recognition and kudos. Leo 23 July – 22 Aug If an offer looks too good to be true it probably is too good to be true. Try to resist temptation at work and in your personal life. You could be faced with

some unexpected news which will change your priorities at home. If you stay in control this news cannot harm you and could bring long term benefits. Virgo 23 Aug – 23 Sept It’s a great week for a bit of a domestic tidy up and combining that with spending time socializing with family and friends. Relationships may have been a little rocky of late; carrying out mundane tasks will give you time to reflect and focus on what’s truly important. New social contacts could bring benefits to any future career moves. Libra 24 Sept – 23 Oct You are ready for a fresh start on pretty much every front. Your energy levels are high and this translates into you making big career strides. Just one word of caution, don’t promise what you cannot deliver. There is a big difference between enthusiasm and realism. Any travel this week should be work related but it’s unlikely to be overseas.

Scorpio 24 Oct – 22 Nov Sometimes you have so many ideas in your head you find it difficult to reach a decision. Share your fears with a loved one but not your colleagues or you may be perceived as indecisive. Organize your thoughts; research funding, obstacles and timeframes and make a decision! Take control and all bodes well, procrastinate and the opposite is true! Sagittarius 23 Nov – 21 Dec There is change in the air, it’s going to happen regardless, so the best thing you can do is embrace it. This could be in your professional career but it’s much more likely to be in your personal life. You may find yourself organizing a social or fund raising event anytime soon make this the focus of your control. Capricorn 22 Dec – 20 Jan If you can’t say something nice say nothing, is this week’s motto. If you get involved in gossip you may find that you are the one that

gets blamed for any bad feeling generated. Keep your distance. An old friend could be on the scene again and they’ll bring nothing but positivity to your life either personally or career wise. Aquarius 21 Jan – 19 Feb You need to be cautious when it comes to work colleagues this week. Don’t have your head turned by someone’s physical attractiveness, they may be pretty ugly inside and are not averse to using you. It’s a good time to visit your accountant or bank manager and get to grips with your finances before making any big Christmas spends! Pisces 20 Feb – 20 March You are a very driven character and this is admirable but if you are too driven you can make others feel unheard and exhausted by you. If you are engaged in a community or work project try to bring others along with you. You may achieve a little less than you wished for financially but you will be relationship rich!

By George! 2014 is year of The Georgians Blenheim Palace and the gardens at Rousham House. Don't miss Stowe Gardens and its striking rotunda, ripped right out of Pride and Prejudice for romances between Mr Darcy and Lizzie, and the gardens at Bowood House, a beautiful example of Georgian architecture in Wiltshire with extensive Capability Brown designed gardens.

2014 marks the 300th anniversary of the accession to the throne of George I. From theatregoing and wining and dining to strolls through stunning English Country Gardens, VisitEngland rounds up the most timeless handme-downs from the 18th century. Historic Royal Palaces The accession to the British Throne by George I was celebrated in the decadent manner associated with the Hanoverian reign. A huge bonfire was held at Kensington Palace (pictured) during not only the Coronation year but annually afterwards on the 1 August. After inheriting the throne from his father, George II continued with the theme of excess. Discover his elaborate taste at this royal home, where the grandiose Georgian culture comes alive in in a new exhibition next April, telling the story of the glittering court of George II and Queen Caroline. Like with most entertainment at the time, splurging was part of the psyche. Fine dining and exotic delicacies became the trend of the day, an experience you can recreate at Hampton Court Palace's new Chocolate Kitchens. Explore England's rich culinary past in these historic kitchens, and learn how the craze for hot chocolate swept the nation thanks to Thomas Tosier, personal chocolate maker to George I and George II . For another George-ian experience altogether, follow instead in the footsteps of King George III with a visit to the royal retreat of Kew Palace. Tour the Princesses' bedrooms and the ailing King's chambers before taking your own royal walk through the 300acre World Heritage Site. Picnic in the 18th century Orangery, look out for the exotics pets of the Georgian

King and Queen and admire the trees planted during this reign from the canopy walk way. New for 2014, visitors can also watch Georgian cookery demonstrations at Kew. Showpiece Homes Lavish and over the top, this was the era when Palladianism slowly overtook Baroque style to shape architecture and art. The overindulgent Georgians indulged in a never-ending pursuit for the perfect party house and, in a bid to outdo one another, gifted our country with numerous heritage gems. We owe the transformation from Buckingham House to Buckingham Palace to the 18th Century monarchs, as well as Holkham Hall and Chiswick House, though perhaps the most notable country home of this opulent era is John Nash's Brighton Pavilion. Using ethnic inspiration from the great palaces of the moguls and ornate embellishments from the orient, this palace for the Prince Regent surpassed expectations of extraordinary and extravagant pleasure. Revered by fashionable Regency society, the pavilion is still a distinctive landmark for Brighton today and is home to some of the finest collections of the chinoiserie style in Britain. English Landscape Gardens Emerald and peridot greens, ancient temples, gothic bridges and reflecting pools - this idyllic pastoral scene swept through the Georgian era as the English pleasure garden came in to vogue. Landscape gardening, made popular by the works of Lancelot Capability Brown and William Kent, took not only the country by storm but spread Europe across like wildfire. You can still catch notable examples at the grounds of

Big-spending The stylish Georgians loved a shopping spree. From filling London's Regent Street with the designers of the day - a tradition not lost - to jaunts to the trendy spa town of Harrogate, the fashionista was created under the Georgians. Re-create the indulgence with a visit to Bath, which became a popular spa time in the Georgian era. Here, material boys and girls will find designer boutiques set among Georgian terraces and open courtyards at Milsom Place. Take a break from filling bags and loosening wallets by bathing in the city's natural thermal waters just as they would have in the 18th Century. While you're looking the part and in the mind-set, take part in some traditional dancing at a Regency Ball during the annual Jane Austen Festival. Forget Broadway, we have the original West End, a term first used in fact during the 19th Century. Developed originally as a series of palaces, expensive town houses and fashionable shops, this area of London was created as a hub of entertainment that still exists today. Best known for the location of England's iconic Theatreland, our tradition of going to the theatre can be attributed to the Georgians . Catch a show at one of these bustling buildings to channel the mingling and merriment of our social ancestors, or venture outside of the capital to discover The Madness of King George at Newcastle's Theatre Royal - the very same George who bestowed the royal charter on the playhouse. To discover more about the Georgians and what they did for us, don't miss the upcoming exhibition at the British Library, which opens on 8 November. bl.uk/whatson/exhibitions/ georgiansrevealed.

How to make the most of a Paris city break in just 3 days

With 27 million visitors in 2012 and recently named the "Best City To Visit in 2014" by Lonely Planet, Paris, or the "City of Light", is one of the most visited cities in the world. From iconic landmarks, world class museums and galleries, to designer shopping, there is so much to see and so many things to do in Paris, which makes it a top favourite city break destination in the heart of millions of tourists. For those who are spending only a short few days in the city, it is difficult to experience everything this romantic city has to offer. Here are a few suggestions and tips from Alpha Holiday Lettings on getting the most from a Paris short stay. Paris' main airport Charles De Gaulle is about 30km North-East of the city. One of the cheaper ways to get to the city centre is by taking the airport shuttle bus "Roissybus" which costs only €10 per person. The one hour bus journey takes passengers right into the heart of the city, where the stunning Paris Opera House is located. Paris' underground network, or metro, is vast and is a very convenient way of getting around in the city. Bundles of 10 single-trip tickets called "Carnet" (€13.30) can be bought at a discounted price, which may work out to be more economical than the unlimited "Paris Visite Pass" option (1-day pass €13.90), especially for less frequent travellers. Paris is world famous for its arts and cultural landmarks, with the Louvre Museum at centre stage. Musée du Louvre is the most visited museum in the world, and with nearly 35,000 exhibits, it is essential to plan ahead and decide what to see in advance. Highlights at the Louvre include Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci and the statues of Venus de Milo and Nike of Samothrace. Located on the other side of the Seine is Musée d'Orsay - another world famous museum that houses many impressionist masterpieces by artists such as Monet, Manet, Renoir, to name but a few. For lovers of modern art, Centre Pompidou is a must-visit destination. An excellent way to save money and time is by purchasing the "Paris Museum

Pass" (2-day pass costs €39) which includes free entry to over 60 museums and monuments, including Arc de Triumph, Notre-Dame, Les Invalides and Panthéon, as well as the museums mentioned above. It also allows pass holders to skip the queues which could prove invaluable when time is limited. To many, the Eiffel Tower, or Tour Eiffel, is the symbol of Paris. Visitors can jump the queues at this hugely popular and busy attraction, which could be anything up to 2 hours' wait, by pre-booking tickets (€14.50) on their official website. The tricky part is that online tickets are booked up months in advance. However, a very small number of tickets do get released online again due to last minute cancellations, so be sure to keep checking their website for availability. For those who prefer not to go up the tower, a fantastic vantage point for viewing from a distance is the Palais de Chaillot at Trocadéro. This is also a perfect place to visit after sunset, when the tower comes alive with thousands of flashing lights for just 5 minutes every hour on the hour. On the outskirt of Paris is the magnificent Château de Versailles, or Palace of Versailles. It is an opulent display of absolute power and wealth of the then French monarchy. Highlights include the Hall of Mirrors, the King's Grand Apartment and of course the vast gardens and musical fountains. Visiting Versailles will pretty much take a full day. Also true in this case, visitors can save time queuing at the ticketing office by pre-booking tickets (€25) on their official website. This way, visitors can proceed straight to the entrance into the palace (Gate A) on arrival. There is never a lack of choice of luxury hotels in Paris, although during peak seasons accommodation in Paris could be very expensive and hard to come by. An alternative is to stay in self-catering apartments in Paris, which is more flexible and affordable especially for families with children and larger groups. A good selection of central Paris apartments and Paris vacation rentals can be found at AlphaHolidayLettings.com.

How to get your property ready for the winter

The clocks have changed, the days are getting shorter and it’s time to put the heating on. To make sure you don’t receive crippling gas and electricity bills, follow these simple tips. “No matter whether you live in your own house or a rented property, there are a few simple measures everyone can take to ensure bills are kept as low as possible without spending all winter holding on to a hot water bottle”, says Cullen Property Operations Director Steve Coyle. 1. Start with your energy bills Despite recent price increases by

a majority of the main energy suppliers there are still good deals to be had for gas and electricity. Check your bills to find out how much energy you typically use and see whether it would be beneficial to fix your energy prices for a year or see if there are cheaper deals altogether. Most suppliers also offer combined rates for gas and electricity. Good utility comparison and advice sites include Which? and Moneysupermarket, among others. 2. Pay your bills the clever way Even if you do stay with your current supplier switching to paperless billing or setting up a direct debit may save money on a monthly basis. Always submit actual meter readings as opposed to relying on estimated bills. If

estimates are too high, this will allow you to lower your bills. Should they be too low, you avoid a nasty surprise after a few months. 3. Insulate your home (and yourself) If you are a home owner, check your energy supplier’s deals on cavity wall and loft insulation. Most utility companies are encouraging customers to improve their homes and rewards include help towards the cost of improvements now and lower bills in the long run. If you’re renting, it may be worth speaking to your landlord or letting agent about these schemes. And while it may sound obvious, putting on an extra jumper or investing in a pair of slippers can also make a massive difference. 4. Look after your heating system Whether you have a gas boiler or are heating your home with electric storage heaters, it’s worth having them serviced regularly, at least once every 12 months before the cold period starts. As temperatures are dropping, now is a great time to double-check everything is working

fine before you get caught out by a sudden freeze. 5. Bleed your radiators Radiators can only work efficiently when any air has been removed from them. This is done with the help of a radiator key. However, if you’re unfamiliar with DIY, ask a qualified tradesman to help you. 6. Keep the heating on… …especially if you are leaving your flat for a few days during a cold snap. This will prevent frozen or burst pipes and potentially structural damage to your home caused by cold conditions. Make sure you know where and how your mains water supply can be switched off. 7. …but only heat the rooms you need If you have a box room or a guest room that isn’t being used, turn off any radiators in that room to avoid wasting gas or electricity. Seal the door against draughts. 8. Check fires and fire alarms Autumn and winter are perfect

for curling up in front of a cosy fireplace. However, winter is also the time when fire-related accidents increase. Have your fireplace serviced if you haven’t used it for a while and check that all fire alarms in your property are working. 9. Minimise draughts Draughty doors and windows can suck the heat out of your property in a short space of time. If you can’t replace them, try using draft excluders and heavy curtains to retain heat during the colder months. 10. Compile an emergency kit You don’t need to go overboard, but having a small bag of useful tools ready can save time and take the stress out of an emergency. Your handy kit should include a torch, batteries, insulation tape and a screwdriver as well as a radiator key. Add to that a list of important phone numbers for your home insurance company, landlord, emergency plumbers and heating engineers etc.

Gromett’s late strike earns point Saturday 2 November 2013 Sussex County League Division One Chichester City 2 -2 Newhaven

By Chester Browton A LATE GOAL from Joe Gromett earned Chichester a 2-2 draw against Newhaven in an exciting match of changing fortunes. City, who were playing against a forceful wind in the first-half, took the lead after 10 minutes with a brilliant goal from Morgan Forry. The left-winger stole the ball from an opponent on the edge of the box and then swivelled round to rifle in an unstoppable shot for his fifth goal of the season. Newhaven, who were missing their regular strike-pairing of Tyler Goatcher and Ebou Jallow, took time to work their way into contention. On 25 minutes a

neat cross-field ball found Lee Robinson who had a clear run on goal, but his angled shot was narrowly wide. And then right on the stroke of half-time the Dockers drew level. The Chichester defenders found themselves stretched during a period of sustained pressure and when the ball was cannoned out of a bunch of players to the unmarked Mark Probert he had no trouble converting – despite loud appeals for offside. Spectators were treated to aggressive attacking football throughout the second-half. A Newhaven move on 51 minutes finished with the ball hitting the post and rebounding away off keeper Anthony Ender. City weren’t so fortunate three minutes later when Newhaven playmaker James Rhodes squared the ball to Jayson Sowter, whose shot took a deflection and wrong-

footed Ender to make it 2-1. Dockers’ Jake Buss did well to block a powerful shot from Alex Ansa on 68 minutes, the follow-up going agonisingly wide with the keeper still lying in the mud. The turning point of the game arrived with 13 minutes remaining. Robinson went down in the box despite there being minimal contact, but justice was done when Probert’s spot-kick was fired over the top. Had it gone in, there would have been no way back for Chichester but instead they went on a frenzied assault during the dying stages, with Gromett causing havoc for the exhausted Newhaven backline. On 89 minutes Gromett’s trickling ball somehow found a path through a crowd of players for the equaliser. Straight from the

Sussex County Football League Tables

Division One restart the same man charged at the opposition like a rhino and his shot went just outside the post. By now, the Dockers’ players were reeling and Frazer Smith spearheaded one last attack with Gromett in his slipstream. For a moment it seemed Chichester had clinched an incredible victory with Gromett easily netting Smith’s pass, but the linesman’s flag came to Newhaven’s rescue and immediately after the final whistle sounded. City: Ender, Heath, Prior, Cody, Boniface, Blatchford, Tallant, F Smith, Burbridge, Ansa, Forry. Subs: Gromett, Groom, Watts.

City hammer the Wombles Sunday 3 November 2013 FA Cup 3 Qualifying Round Chichester City Ladies 8 – 0 AFC Wimbledon

LAST WEEKEND saw the start of Chichester City Ladies FA cup campaign. Chichester entered the competition at the 3rd qualifying stage knowing a win would see them in the first round proper. AFC Wimbledon’s development squad were the opponents after winning in their previous two qualifying rounds. Chichester started the game slowly and were put under pressure by the ‘dons attacking players for the first 10 minutes of the game. The deadlock was finally broken on 18 minutes when a Chichester corner was not cleared and Lauren Cheshire put the ball in the net with a volley over the top of her head. After the restart Chichester continued their dominance and created several goal scoring opportunities

from both forward players and midfielders again the only thing missing was the finish. With the amount of chances being created by Chichester it was only a matter of time before the second goal came, Cheshire again came up with the goods scoring a fine volley with the outside of her boot after some excellent build up play throughout the Chichester midfield. Ambler, who was working tirelessly upfront, then had several chances to get on the score sheet herself but a combination of good goalkeeping and strong defending kept her at bay. On 37 minutes Ambler eventually got her reward for her efforts when she slotted the ball past the keeper after a precision through ball from the centre of midfield. Chichester went in at the break 3-0 up and were looking to build upon the fine attacking football they had shown in the first half. The second half began much as the first half had ended with Chichester enjoying the lion’s share of possession in the Wimbledon

half. Fowlie and Wride built on impressive first half displays in the middle and were combining well to create chances for the Chichester forwards. The fourth goal again came from Ambler with a great strike from the edge of the area that flew into the top right hand corner. Cheshire and Ambler soon completed their hat tricks and put Chichester 6-0 up. With Chichester six in front there was still no sign of them taking their foot off the gas. Starkey, a substitute for the impressive Symonds, scored Chichester’s seventh with a fine

individual effort, starting a run in her own half past several opponents and coolly placing the ball into the bottom corner of the net. t was then left to Ambler to get her fourth and Chichester’s eighth with a fierce shot from the right hand side, clipping the post as it went in. A fine Chichester performance and one that sees them into the next round of the FA cup where they will face Gloucester City Ladies at home on 1 December. The team are back to league duty this weekend and travel to the IOW to face Shanklin.
