Meeting takes place with view to cutting spit at Pagham and beyond. Insurance prices look set to increase. Property prices will plummet. Mortgages and planning permission will become tougher to secure.

erosion is due to an ever-growing spit that has displaced the entrance to the harbour, and is forcing an aggressive tide to flow parallel to the beach. To make matters worse, this spit is also blocking the longshore drift – shingle that would otherwise replace erosion losses. HOW IT COULD AFFECT YOU The continued erosion of Pagham Beach could have dire consequences, not just for the nearby houses, but for the whole local area. With increasing storm

activity and the tide rising each year, the risk of flooding is severe. Water could claim up to 900 hectares of farmland and hundreds of homes. Local landmarks such as the Yacht Club, St Thomas à Becket’s Church and the Church Farm Holiday Village would be under threat. In addition, the sewerage system, which has already been put under pressure, could be completely overwhelmed. The growing flood risk will have a financial impact on the Pagham area

THE PREDICAMENT The ideal solution to the problem would be either to close off the channel along the beach or to cut the spit, thereby creating a new harbour mouth. However, the authorities that can approve such works are tied by EU environmental directives. These directives state that such measures may only be taken in an internationally designated nature reserve, such as Pagham Harbour, as a last resort. In order to override these directives, there’s a need to demonstrate that there is “no viable alternative” to touching the spit. For this reason Pagham has had to experiment with short term flood defence measures. Residents have also been told to wait and see if nature solves the problem itself. The suggestion is that the shape of the spit may change over time, either sealing up the existing channel, or creating a second one. Unfortunately, the journey the

spit may take is highly unpredictable. And in the meantime, the shorter term defence measures put in place have not worked. Shingle that was deposited to replace that which has been lost was washed away within days. The rock wall (revetment) that was built to protect homes has collapsed. And the 28 tons of sandbags that have been laid down are merely temporary.

THE MONEY ISSUE Both shorter and longer term flood defence measures will be costly. Further shingle shifting and

a strengthening of the revetment will cost approximately £100,000. The bureaucracy involved in looking into the possibility of touching the spit could alone cost £150,000. Major works, if allowed, would be vastly more. Government funding for flood defence in smaller settlements such as Pagham’s is being cut. However desperate Pagham’s situation becomes, the authorities are under no obligation to step in and save homes; they can simply walk away. Financially, Pagham must consider themselves to be on their own.

Day of action to tackle speeding in Chichester

POLICE IN CHICHESTER carried out a day of action to crack down on driving offences. On Monday, May 12, local officers from Chichester’s Neighbourhood Policing Team took to the streets to tackle road traffic offences in a response to the local communities telling us that this was an issue in their areas. During the morning the team went to Avenue De Chartres and the surrounding area and a total of 12

tickets were issues to motorists for various reasons including using a mobile phone whilst driving and not wearing a seatbelt. Drivers were also stopped and given words of advice in regards to the speed of their vehicles. In the afternoon the team relocated to Broad Road in Hambrook where reports had been received about speeding traffic. Despite the wet weather a number of vehicles were stopped and a total of five tickets were issued for various road offences.

Anorak Corner Interesting snippets of information about Chichester!

Chichester’s Local Neighbourhood Policing Team have continued to listen to local residents who have raised concerns to us about speeding within their villages. In response to this we have arranged a series of days of action to tackle the issue of speeding in communities in addition to constantly finding ways to work with the local community to reduce speeding. Local Officer Jason Lemm said: “Chichester Neighbourhood Policing Team currently loans out its speed calming equipment known as SID’s (Speed Indicator Devices) to volunteers to educate drivers of vehicle speeds in the communities. If you are interested in joining one of the 24 volunteer groups already in operation in Chichester District, or just simply want to know more you can contact your local PCSO who will be happy to give you more details.”

The name Bosham is either derived from the old English 'Bosanhamm' - Bosa's water meadow as it was known in 750AD, or 'Boscusham' meaning wood hamlet. Formerly in the province of the South Saxons and the Earldom of Wessex, it became Boseham in 1086, 20 years after the Norman conquest

Well known in the area for providing a high level of care, Westhampnett House is set on 3.5 acres of West Sussex's finest parkland, on the outskirts of the historic city of Chichester. Boasting its own listed Dovecote, Pond, Apple Orchard, and Stunning Gardens, the handsome Grade II listed Georgian building together with later additions provide an idyllic setting for the nursing and recovery of the 32 residents that our Home caters for. We promise good, warm, old-fashioned care and hospitality. Come and visit us, to experience this. We offer: Full Nursing Care, Respite & Short Stays.

POLITICAL PARTIES So now we have 4 main parties. Then there’s the Greens, they have an MP. Scots nats, all sorts of Irish factions and the odd bod who’s had the whip withdrawn. If the USA, with the world’s largest economy (only just, China is more or less level) can do it with just 2 parties, why this fragmentation over here? ECONOMIES The USA has had the world’s biggest economy for 100 years. They took over from us. California once had the 7th biggest economy in the world. London generates 22% of the UK’s GDP but only has 12% of MP’s. LIGHTBULBS In Waitrose a man was staring at the shelves of different light bulbs for sale. He was on his mobile trying to get information about which bulb he needed to buy. I commiserated. He suggested a rant. Happy to oblige: “WHY DO WE HAVE TO HAVE A DIFFERENT FRIGGIN’ BULB FOR EVERY LIGHT IN THE FRIGGIN’ HOUSE!!! WHEN I WAS A BOY THERE WAS ONLY ONE TYPE OF BULB AND NO-ONE DIED!!!”

CHARGERS The same goes for chargers. Every phone, tablet, laptop. The mini-hoover. The cordless hedge trimmer. We have a drawer full of old chargers we’re too afraid to throw out because we don’t know if one of them is needed.

THE LARDER A tin of mixed fruit we have had for more than twenty years. Half packets of things like the vegetable suet we needed for dumplings during the vegetarian streak 2009-2012. MENTAL CLUTTER I’m having another go with meditation. I’m better at it than my first stint (1974). There’s less to it than one thinks. One just stops the endless cacophony of inter-connected thoughts. I can only manage it for a few seconds. The trick is not to admonish yourself when you notice that you lost control 5 minutes ago and have been indulging the usual mental drivel. I know an ex-footballer who can do it for 6 hours.

CLUTTER Our lives are full of clutter. KITCHEN DRAWER We have a kitchen drawer into which goes all useless things “we might need”. Half used tubes of glue. Old keys. Leftover birthday cake candles. Dice. An instruction booklet for the mini-hoover. A bradawl. A horseshoe magnet. A pair of secatuers whose spring is creaky. (NB no lightbulbs, we have an entire drawer just for them).

NO MENTAL CLUTTER I’ve only met two people with the ability to focus exclusively on what they want to focus on all the time. Both became world famous. They were born like it, I believe.

BLACK HOLES There is a black hole in our house into which useful things disappear. Pens. Sunglasses. Gloves. Memory sticks. MEN’S TOOLBOXES Mine is full of rubbish. Pliers that hardly open. A solitary yellow rawlplug. A 50 year old hammer that looks guilty, m'lud. Another half used tube of glue.

Police warning on child sexual exploitation SUSSEX POLICE and partners are asking the public to help detect signs of child sexual exploitation. A special assessment carried out by the force revealed that more than 100 young people in Sussex were at risk of systematic sexual exploitation by older youths or men. The young people, mainly teenage girls, may receive gifts, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and sometime apparent affection, for engaging in sexual activity, with individuals or groups, outside their own families. Police stress that not all of the young people referred to in the survey were actually victims of crime at that time. The data was drawn from police records of missing and found children, information from partner agencies about children they were supporting because of safeguarding concerns, and specific police operations in which there were suggestions that children may have been exploited. The survey also finds that the majority of children referred to are vulnerable to individuals, often to youths or men in their late teens or early twenties, rather than necessarily to groups, although the

potential for that is still a concern. It also acknowledges that this may not be the whole picture, as some potential or actual victims, or some agencies in contact with them, including the police, may not always recognise them as victims. A briefing for agencies involved in tackling the problem, including local authorities, other support services, and charities, is taking place at Sussex Police headquarters in Lewes on Friday 23 May. It is chaired by Olivia Pinkney, Temporary Deputy Chief Constable, and is also attended by Katy Bourne, Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, together with Norman Baker, Crime Prevention Minister, and a representative from the Littlehampton-based Body Shop who have adopted child sexual exploitation as a national community awareness focus this year. Attendees at the briefing included included representatives from; all three top- tier local authorities in Sussex; all three independent Local Safeguarding Childrens’ Boards (LSCBs); Barnardo’s ‘Sussex B Safe’ service covering East and West Sussex: WISE (‘What Is

Sexual Exploitation’) from Brighton and Hove; and ‘Catch 22’ who offer a range of support services in East Sussex. Those attending are also being told about the first prosecution in Sussex for alleged conspiracy over child sex exploitation, following an investigation by Eastbourne detectives. Olivia Pinkney said: “There is no current evidence that this pernicious activity, which corrupts the lives of vulnerable young people, is frequent in Sussex, but we believe there needs to be an extra focus on the issue to encourage reporting so that a fuller picture can be established and children better protected. “We are already working with partners in local authorities and partners in other statutory and voluntary agencies, to develop a fuller picture of the way in which sexual exploitation can happen. “And all police officers and staff, especially all those engaged on operations and intelligence, as well as our call handlers, are being specially briefed on the warning signs.” But the public can help too.

The warning signs to look for can include one or more of; - a child has unexplained gifts or unaffordable new things such as clothes or mobile, or expensive habits such as alcohol or drugs; - they have substance misuse problems; - they often go missing, run away or are homeless; - they are not engaged with their school and/or have been excluded or have long periods of truancy; - they have repeated sexually transmitted infections, pregnancy and terminations; - they associate with men or groups who are older than them, or are in contact with people who are known to commit crime. Katy Bourne said: “No child should ever be the victim of this kind of horrific abuse and agencies that work with children have a collective responsibility to work together to stamp it out. “As Police and Crime Commissioner, I want all victims and those at risk of abuse, to know they have somewhere to go where they will be listened to and believed. Most importantly of all, when a young person does come forward,

swift action must be taken. “Earlier this year, following a supportive public consultation, I increased the police precept to fund future investment in Sussex Police so that they can effectively tackle serious sexual offending including child sexual exploitation. “This extra funding will allow Sussex Police to bring the management and investigation of sexual offences and safeguarding of children and adults into a dedicated team that will have the capacity and specially trained officers to provide improved victim care. “I hope that this will increase public confidence to report such offences, result in more victims having the confidence to complete the criminal justice system or seek other solutions, and keep people in Sussex safe from offenders.” If you can help on any way, contact Sussex Police on 101 and quote Operation Kite. Your information will be logged and will be able to speak in confidence to police officers or other specialist support agencies. You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

New round of funding launched for community, voluntary and sports groups in West Sussex VOLUNTARY, COMMUNITY AND SPORTS groups across West Sussex are being invited to get their bids in to a funding pot of more than £400,000. Another round of Community Initiative Funding has been launched following the success of last year’s scheme where more than 200 groups and organisations across the county received funding totalling nearly £406,000. The applications and awards - administered by County Local Committees (known as CLCs) varied from £2,500 for tools and equipment for Bolney Volunteers, £2,778 to provide wet rooms for the Crawley and District Scout Hut and £250 to print brochures for the 11th Selsey Festival. Some of the CLCs that had money left over allocated some or all of it to their respective local food banks or to the County Council’s Operation Watershed to support communityled projects that reduce the risk of future flooding in West Sussex that could not have otherwise been carried out. West Sussex County Council

Cabinet Member for Corporate Relations, Bob Lanzer, who has responsibility for the committees and the Community Initiative Funding, said: “The CLCs, through the use of Community Initiative Funding, provide very welcome support to the local clubs, societies and voluntary groups in their areas when funding from other sources may not be available. These awards help benefit the wider community in making these groups more sustainable or enable them to run events that would not otherwise be able to take place. “Local voluntary and community groups will be pleased to hear that another £426,000 of CIF is available again in 2014/15 and I would encourage them to submit an application if they need support for a project in their community.” Applications are considered by the CLCs four times a year and the public are welcome to attend those meetings. Information about how to apply for funding can be found at www.westsussex. gov.uk Applications can be made throughout the year.

County Councillor targeted by phone scammers backs national campaign to raise awareness RESIDENTS across West Sussex are being encouraged to continue to fight back against fraudsters as Scams Awareness Month switches its focus towards telephone hoaxes. West Sussex County Council’s Trading Standards Service is backing the national month-long initiative and is warning people to be on their guard and look out for others who might fall victim to con artists. One West Sussex County Councillor who almost fell foul of phone scammers has spoken out this week about his experience in support of the campaign Graham Jones, who represents Felpham, said: “A female alleging to be a Police Officer from Paddington Police Station phoned to inform me that they had someone in custody who had been arrested with a number of cloned bank cards in his possession, one of which was mine. “I was urged to contact my bank immediately; the lady was insistent and extremely pushy, choosing not

to empathise with my situation but rather stress that I got in touch with my bank. “She was very brief and advised me to comply on a number of occasions. “Although I was wary, I did call to begin the process of providing my bank details but stopped when they asked me for my security code. I felt that was odd. “Her abruptness had hit a nerve and the penny dropped when she rang a second time demanding my details. “After checking my balance online to ensure it was okay, I contacted Sussex Police who responded very quickly and confirmed it was a scam as someone in Barnham had reported a similar incident that morning. “If they had acquired all of my bank details there would have been nothing I could do.” Councillor Jones is urging residents of West Sussex to be

watchful of potential fraudsters in their area. He said: “There are a lot of vulnerable people out there who may not be savvy enough and would take such a request at face value. That is my main concern. “Some may react too quickly when they should be more guarded to such demands. “From my experience, we should make sure phone numbers and addresses are verified thus reducing the chances of people falling into the clutches of scammers. “I would advise caution as this can happen to anyone.” Get advice and report scams to Trading Standards through the Citizens Advice consumer service on 08454 04 05 06 or online support. If you know someone who has sent money in response to a scam or has fallen victim to doorstep callers you can also report your concerns direct to West Sussex Trading Standards Service online.

More than 14 million calories burnt so far on route to Rio

The annual challenge sees teams (made up of five people) from Sussex workplaces travel on a virtual journey from London to Rio de Janeiro

MORE THAN 280 teams have burnt 14 million calories between them as part of the Reaching Rio workplace challenge. There’s still time to sign up for Reaching Rio, so tie up your trainers and get your gym gear on. The annual challenge sees teams (made up of five people) from Sussex workplaces travel on a virtual journey from London to Rio de Janeiro. Reaching Rio started last month, but it isn’t too late for teams to sign up as it runs until Sunday July 13. Just visit the website at www. reachingrio.org.

Any sport or physical activity counts towards the goal of reaching Rio. Teams log their activity online or on the smartphone app, and it is converted into miles to take teams on their virtual route. From walking and running to swimming and diving, there are lots of ways to earn miles. And with bonus sports for extra miles, prizes along the route and a special prize for the team that makes it to Rio first, there’s even more encouragement to sign up. The Reaching Rio statistics up to the start of May were:

• Total teams registered: 284 • Total activities logged: 34,292 • Total time logged: 35,258 hours and 50 minutes • Total miles earned: 1,429,775 • Total calories burnt: 14,108,669 (that’s enough to power a Nissan Leaf electric car for approximately 56,435 miles) Anyone can join up after completing a short lifestyle survey. The West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board is backing the challenge. Chairman Christine Field said: “Although any adult can join, Reaching Rio is aimed at people who don’t currently do a lot of exercise, but want to do more by taking part in a fun challenge. “It’s also a great topic of conversation in the workplace, especially if you have a number of teams sign up from the same place and make it much more of competition between you.” Last year teams burned more than 8 million calories between them and travelled 971,439 miles. With 284 teams already signed up to this year’s challenge, there’s no time to lose.

Curfew for West Wittering man who pleaded guilty to £36,000 benefit fraud A WEST WITTERING man who fraudulently claimed over £36,000 in benefits has been handed a six month prison sentence suspended for 12 months and a four month curfew. Dean Neill, 47, from Rookwood Road, West Wittering, had claimed income support, housing benefit and council tax benefit but failed to disclose that he and his partner were working. Mr Neill pleaded guilty to two charges of dishonestly making a false statement to the Department for Work and Pensions and dishonestly failing to disclose the work to Chichester District Council. At Worthing Magistrates Court on Monday 19 May, Mr Neill was sentenced to six months imprisonment, suspended for 12 months, with a four month curfew order from 7pm to 7am Sunday to Friday. Mr Neill was overpaid £34,307.44 income support, £1,400.21 housing benefit and £381.79 council tax Benefit between September 2006 and November 2012. Both Chichester District Council and the Department for Work and Pensions will seek to recover all the overpaid benefit. Councillor Tony Dignum, Cabinet Member for Finance at Chichester

District Council, says: “The message from this latest successful prosecution is clear: we will always take action against people who try to cheat the system. We will protect our local communities from those who criminally abuse the benefits system to line their pockets at the expense of honest, hardworking taxpayers.” If you suspect anyone of committing benefit fraud you can contact the council’s investigation team on a confidential 24 hour fraud hotline number on 01243 534590, or you can report it online.

Lightning strikes house in Chichester A HOUSE IN Chichester was set on fire and damaged after it was struck by lightning. Firefighters were called to the blaze in Mumford Place after lightning struck the building’s chimney stack, causing damage to all floors of the property. West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said four fire engines were sent to tackle the fire at 1.20pm on Thursday (22 May). No one was hurt but a dog and parrot had to be rescued from the house.

Sobering times after a grim Bank Holiday The flat grey skies and gloomy Bank Holiday Monday weather echoed a sober mood. The sweeping victory of the National Front in France. The rise of the extreme right elsewhere with racist attacks in places like Hungary. A man going into a museum in Brussels - for unknown reasons at the time of writing - and firing a Kalashnikov machine-gun into the faces of four people who just happened to be there. It feels like we have been dropped back into the dark days of the 1930s. It's a mean-spirited, insidious kind of poison and every one of us who cares should do something to stop it, even if our only act is to reject it and tell others we do. Bad press The Romanians continue to get a bad press. I can see that it seems unfair that their labourers can undercut ours because they can charge lower wages, since their standard of living costs less back home. But that's market forces for you. As a journalist I have to

A local firm he contacted never turned up as arranged. Instead he hired a team of Romanian builders. It cost him two grand instead of four. The job was done efficiently and on time. Motoring club Insurance companies are not my favourite entities. Are they anyone's

Confessions of a Spendaholic Recently I have been spending A LOT of dollar; the fact that I’m saying that is interesting, because many people would say that what I was spending before now was already quite excessive. But I have reached new levels. There are so many clothes that I want so bad. Just look at the shop fronts, how beautiful they are, how playful they are. I mean are they intentionally playing with my mind or something? With adverts and stuff though, they’re not selling you the actual stuff; they’re selling you the person that you could be if you have that stuff. Countless times I have looked at a lipstick and thought ‘Yes!!!! THAT is the bold statement lipstick that I will wear to the next party, and I will be the girl with the cool lipstick. That will be my thing.’ Then suddenly fifty pounds is gone, and you realise that maybe that lipstick is just some coloured sludge and not a whole new, cooler, more confident you. Maybe that dress is just a piece of material that you’ve pinned all of your hopes and dreams on. This whole problem would have been resolved if those idiot cavemen hadn’t started wearing fur or whatever. Then maybe we would all just walk around naked and

services like the RAC, which began life as an automobile club, now seem to be emulating. A member for years, I was told my renewal quote was higher than the year before because of the number of times I had called them out - well within the limit. One had been for a friend's car in the snow. That time, the RAC hadn't even answered our repeated calls. "We tweeted that our Cable and Wireless lines were down," they had the gall to inform me when I rang later to complain, as if this absolved them of any blame for their communication breakdown that left me shivering for hours by the roadside, using the nearby forest facilities for convenience. By the time the tow-away truck arrived it was too late to repair the car and we'd had to shell out for a B & B. To make up for this, the RAC very grudgingly gave me two extra call-outs. That's also what they give you for loyal

membership. But what's the point if it lands you with a higher premium? If there's a breakdown service out there, which genuinely rewards customers rather than trying to squeeze every penny out of them, please get in touch. Rubbery fish I grew up in Brighton so this week wasn't the first wet Bank Holiday Monday I have spent there, on a visit to the pier with my sister and two friends. I was determined we go for a fish and chip lunch at the famous Harry Ramsden's because I had very fond memories of a giant Yorkshire pudding, filled with onion gravy, that I had eaten there at Christmas two years before. I love swordfish and can be very easily persuaded to go and eat a swordfish steak at the Crown Inn in Chichester, where they sear it beautifully, served on a generous bed of veg. But Oh, Harry Ramsden! What a disappointment. A small, rubbery Contact Allis:

piece of fish, served tepid. When this was pointed out, it came back reheated from the grill, cut up as it had gone back to the kitchen, with curt service on the side. Presumably, you're less likely to get good food when you're part of the bank holiday crowds. And finally ... A few months back, a reader wrote in to say she was much heartened that she wasn't the only one to mix things up through absentmindedness.

Photo of the week

Mia Edwards nobody would care what anyone was wearing. What a money saver that would be. But as it goes, I spend many an hour scrolling through the Missguided feed searching for that bargain game changer. Luckily, though, there are things like car boot sales and charity shops where everything is cheaper, and you may even be doing some good when you buy them (besides the good of having new clothes to add to an already vast collection). I’m not kidding, if there was a gift card for Oxfam (is there already? I don’t know) I would be on that. I would spend it within a week. So if, like me, you actually have a paid job and can afford to buy things, then shop away. If, however, unlike me, you are sensible, you may see that the whole of the commercial world is one huge con and you would do better to save that money and invest it into something worthwhile. Your choice young one.

HRH The Princess Royal awards outstanding Chichester College achiever at Buckingham Palace

CHICHESTER COLLEGE Joinery Apprentice Toby Schofield, from Bognor Regis, has been recognised for his accomplishments through

learning by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal and the Worshipful Company of Joiners and Ceilers at an awards ceremony at Buckingham

Palace. The Princess Royal has presented the awards – which forms part of the annual City & Guilds Prince

Philip Medal ceremony – since she took over from her father, His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, as President of the City and Guilds of London Institute in June 2011. City & Guilds, a global leader in skills education, was founded by the City of London and 16 Livery Companies in 1878 and has maintained close links with the Livery Companies ever since. Every year, the Joiners and Ceilers Company rewards outstanding City & Guilds learners for their achievements. Toby Schofield was recognised for his excellent training within the craft and constantly striving for perfection within his Apprenticeship at the Creative Woodworking Company, in Bosham. The 19-year-old already has a number of accolades; being crowned National Apprentice of the Year in the South Central region, a finalist in National Apprentice of the Year and runner-up for Apprentice of the Year in the Spring Awards for Sussex College’s . Speaking about his success, Toby said: “It was a real surprise to be nominated for a Livery Company prize for my City & Guilds course. The

whole day visiting HQS Wellington and Buckingham Palace to meet Princess Anne was an incredible experience and one that I will never forget.” Owner of the Creative Woodworking Company, Simon Ward, accompanied Toby at Buckingham Palace, he said: “It was an experience that will last a lifetime. I’m extremely proud of Toby for receiving this prestigious award. It was great to meet Princess Anne and for Toby to be recognised for all his hard work.” Also, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group, Chris Jones said: “At City & Guilds, we’re all about helping people get into a job, progress on the job and move on to the next job. As part of this, we are committed to celebrating the achievements of those who find success through vocational education and training, and Toby should be truly proud of this accomplishment. Receiving an award from one of our Founder Members is a remarkable achievement and signifies great dedication to his craft. I wish Toby all the best for the future.”

£1million investment at Chichester Golf Club including the opening of an adventure golf course

Families can expect exciting times at Chichester Golf Club

A JUNGLE PARADISE adventure golf course featuring lagoons, rafts, roaring animals and waterfalls is due to open in July at Chichester Golf Club, just south of Hunston on the B2145. A group of explorers have crashed landed on a lost jungle island. Become one of these explorers as you navigate your way around waterfalls, lagoons and play the cave hole if you dare. Can you pull the raft across the lagoon to finish your round or will you fall prey to the roaring tigers that surround you? A massive £500,000 investment has gone into creating the Jungle Paradise course and construction of which is already well under way. Sited just inside the entrance to Chichester Golf Club next to the driving range, the adventure golf course will offer a fun experience to people of all ages and is accessible to all. Chichester Golf Club’s owner, Sally Haygarth said: “This new adventure golf course is great news for us and for the local community. Exciting outdoor activities which are fun for the

whole family are rare in our area. From our experience at our Epsom site adventure golf is a great cross generational activity and can be enjoyed by those aged 3 to 103!” Building started in April and the course in expected to open in early July. At the same time the ever popular Driving Range has received a major re-fit with the installation of Power Tees and a revamp of the outdoor bays to include a state-of-the-art Huxley artificial practice mat. Huxley mats, which are used at St Andrews and Wentworth, offer the golfer a near perfect simulation of playing off real grass. You can play off the mat or use your own tee, it’s that good! The final phase of the project will be to add a coffee shop and party room which will be integrated with the driving range retail shop. The coffee shop will be licensed and will feature floor to ceiling windows looking out over a large terrace onto the adventure golf course. The whole project is expected to cost £1 million and should be completed in early 2015.

National News News in Brief Prayers said for missing sailors • Getting rid of Nick Clegg would “damage the Lib Dems for ever”, former party leader Lord Ashdown has said. Two Lib Dem parliamentary candidates in key swing seats have urged Mr Clegg to step down after the party lost 307 councillors in Thursday’s election. But Lord Ashdown said this would be “divisive”, not “serious politics” and said Mr Clegg was “the best Prime Minister Britain hasn’t got”. Tim Farron also warned Lib Dems would be “foolish” to turn on themselves.

• The official UK interest rate could settle at an average of 3% in a few years, the outgoing deputy governor of the Bank of England has predicted. Charlie Bean suggested it was likely to reach that level between 2017 and 2019. The rate has been at the historic low of 0.5% since March 2009 and the Bank’s governor has indicated it will not start rising before next spring. But Mr Bean told BBC Radio 4’s The World This Weekend there were economic advantages to beginning earlier. • An aid worker from Devon has died of malaria while working in Kenya. The charity Moving Mountains UK said Christi Kelly was taken ill last Tuesday during a volunteer placement before dying in hospital a day later. Offering his condolences to the family the charity’s chairman, Gavin Bate, said her death was “severe and sudden”.

The four UK sailors who are missing

PRAYERS have been said in Somerset for the four UK sailors missing from the Cheeki Rafiki in the North Atlantic. The hull of the 40ft vessel was found on Friday with its life raft still on board but there was no sign of the crew. The yacht began taking on water on its way to the UK after an Antigua

regatta. The search for the crew, which included Paul Goslin, 56, from West Camel and Steve Warren, 52, from Bridgwater, has since been suspended by the US. Yacht skipper Andrew Bridge, 22, from Farnham, Surrey, and 22-yearold James Male, from Romsey, Hampshire, were also on board.

Reverend Rose Hoskins, associate vicar in West Camel and rural Dean of the area in Somerset, said the whole community was “absolutely devastated”. “We’ve all been on a rollercoaster all week. Hopes raised and now really hopes finally dashed,” she added. “[We’re] also aware of the immense support. The hopes and prayers of so many people out there and for that, I think everybody is very, very grateful.” The Cheeki Rafiki was returning from Antigua Sailing Week on 15 May when it began taking on water. The crew diverted to the Azores and contact was lost early the following day. A US Coastguard-organised air and sea search commenced about 620 miles (1,000km) east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, but was called

‘Murder probe’ as Briton dies in Bali

• US police have confirmed that a man who killed six people in a rampage in California was British 22-year-old Elliot Rodger. The student was the son of Hollywood filmmaker Peter Rodger, who was assistant director on The Hunger Games. At a news conference, police said Elliot Rodger had stabbed three male room-mates to death at his apartment. He later went on a rampage through Isla Vista in a black BMW, shooting at people at random. • Several bolts of lightning hit London this week during a brief thunderstorm, including one captured over the Shard in south London. The 87-storey building is western Europe’s tallest building standing at 310m (1,016ft) and is located next to London Bridge station. The storm also affected phone lines in Hillingdon and Breakspear Crematorium in west London was struck by lightning. •The home secretary insists she still has the target of reducing net migration to the tens of thousands. That is despite the latest annual figures showing 212,000 more people moved to live in the UK than left. Theresa May said excluding the EU, the figure was back down to 1990s levels.

Indonesian police suspect Anne-Marie Drozdz was murdered

THE FOREIGN OFFICE has confirmed the death of a British national on the Indonesian island of Bali. Reports have named her as Anne-Marie Drozdz, who is thought to be in her forties and from Leicestershire. Indonesian police suspect the woman was murdered, according to the AFP news agency. The agency quoted police as saying she was found dead by the owner of a villa where she was staying in the tourist district of

Ubud. Police say the door to the property the woman was damaged and she had a black cloth over her face, said AFP. A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said: “We are aware of the death of a British national in Bali on 22 May. “We are providing consular assistance to the family.” A police spokesman told AFP: “She was found by the owner of the villa lying dead on the floor with a black cloth over her face.

“The door was damaged and there were dried up pools of blood on the floor.” Police also told the agency the woman had been renting the villa since 17 May. Ida Bagus Putu Alitin, the head of forensics at Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar on the island, told AFP that the woman’s body showed bruises on the neck and around the mouth. “But we will wait until permission from her family and police to carry out an autopsy,” Alitin said.

off on 18 May. The families of the missing men appealed to the US Coastguard to resume the search, and a public campaign followed, with more than 239,000 thousand people signing a petition asking rescuers not to give up. On 21 May, news emerged that the US Coastguard had resumed search efforts following an official request from the UK government. Debris was spotted on 22 May but it was later confirmed that it had nothing to do with the Cheeki Rafiki. The upturned hull of the yacht was found on 23 May. Its life raft was still onboard and there was no sign of the crew. The US search ended at midnight local time on Friday (05:00 BST Saturday).

Sir Alex Ferguson’s wine collection sells for £2.2m PART OF THE WINE COLLECTION amassed by Sir Alex Ferguson during his Manchester United reign has raised £2.2m. The wines were offered at a sale in Hong Kong in the first of three auctions and fetched a sale total of £2,269,065. Auction house Christie’s said 229 out of 257 lots were sold but could not confirm how many bottles. The collection included vintages dating from 1986, when Sir Alex was appointed at Old Trafford, to 2011. The top lot was one Methuselah - equivalent to eight bottles - of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Vintage 1997, which realised £94,815 and included a card signed “Best Wishes Alex Ferguson”. The top 10 lots were bought by private Asian buyers, Christie’s said. Further sales will take place in London and online in June.

Customer service etiquette… Kylee Charles Director of PR Consultancy Mindseye Management

As a business owner, I have to be mindful of the way that I manage relationships with past, present and potential clients. Working within the area of communications and public relations, maintaining a minimum standard of service is directly linked to how well we do. Having previously worked as a Business Development Manager for one of the UK’s largest Mystery Shopping companies, customer service is something I can’t help but tune in to – even more so when it’s bad service that I receive. One evening last week I visited the supermarket. As I approached the front of the store, I met the

gentlemen moving the trolleys. I politely asked if I could take the one at the end of the line. Then, to my surprise, he turned to me and swore... I couldn’t believe it! The impulsive remark was joined by the word ‘sake’ - and if you’re wondering, no, the phrase didn’t begin with ‘goodness’. My initial reaction was not to get uptight but to actually nervously laugh, smile and ask if he was ok. I mean really?! On reflection, I could have made quite a fuss. But isn’t it funny how we react, even when we know that we have been the recipients of bad service or in some cases, bad manners. Another example of this was when I met with a lady that runs a small business recently. She’d requested a meeting demonstrating a keen inteArest in using our Marketing and PR services. We ordered drinks from the bar where we met and for the next hour I provided my time to demonstrate the ways that she could look to improve her exposure, publicity and so on. We discussed fees and the ‘Ok, I’ll absorb all of that great information and get back to you’ was said. And then, the most surprising thing happened. I had to As well as this, over 1000 businesses in our area will also get at least one newspaper delivered to them whether they are in the City Centre, a town or village, an industrial business park or a lone café on a country road.

Inspiration from Rolls Royce at Great Ballard

AS PART of its commitment to an a genuinely all-round education Great Ballard welcomed Mr Marc Mielau, Head of Marketing at Rolls Royce, to the school recently where he delivered an excellent lecture on pay for my own soft drink. Now the value of the drink against an hour of my time, petrol, parking… it was like a bad date. And bad dates are like bad customer service experiences… they fail to meet your expectations and you decide that you need to move on to somewhere better. It’s the same with potential

clients. It’s feels like a bold move to say ‘no’ to working with someone new but if one thing’s for certain, you shouldn’t compromise your own standards in order to excuse someone of theirs. I’ve learnt in life and in business, it’s just as empowering to make the choice that’s right for you.

the history of the company and its current operations. There were many opportunities for the children to be involved and, amongst the questions asked was, ‘Can you get a Rolls Royce made of gold?’ The answer to this was no, but Mr Mielau did go on to describe one car that had paintwork containing

He also described how it takes 60 people and 450 hours to make one car, regardless of the make-up of its paint – a valuable example of teamwork and co-operation for the

Having been sponsors of the club throughout the 2013/2014 season, Covers are proud to be able to further this commitment. Steve Weston, Covers’ Sales Director: “Having been part of the

club’s incredible journey, being saved by the fans and having the opportunity to be a main sponsor this season, Covers are delighted to confirm that we have renewed our sponsorship for a further two years. “This continued partnership also means that our logo will remain on the reverse of the club’s kit for the next two years. Fantastic news.” The current sponsorship has

been a great success due to the connection with the club, with many local businesses using Covers, who have supplied a diverse range of quality timber and building material for over 160 years. As a result, a real sense of community has been created around the Portsmouth and Gosport Covers depots which also has a branch in Chichester.

Company up for VQ award BOGNOR REGIS-BASED Solartron Metrology has been named as a finalist for this year’s VQ Employer of the Year Award (SME category) for England, in recognition of the outstanding support it has provided to those undertaking vocational qualifications (VQs) within its workforce. Solartron Metrology, a world leader in the innovation, design and manufacture of precision sensors for quality control, has implemented a vocational learning programme to allow its diverse workforce to gain extra skills and progress within the business. Employees are offered paid leave to study, and rewarded with award ceremonies to celebrate their achievements. Solartron Metrology’s training programmes are growing in popularity, with 30% of staff members now in training, after seeing their colleagues progress through the business. Solartron Metrology’s vocational training programme has enabled it to develop a flexible, responsive and skilled workforce, able to work as a team and efficiently develop the business. Solartron Metrology joins five other organisations in with a chance of winning the VQ Employer of the Year Award, which is split into two categories, SMEs and large organisations, and is sponsored by City & Guilds. The overall winner for

each category will be announced at an awards ceremony in Westminster on the 3rd June 2014 and the award will be presented by Matthew Hancock MP, Minister of State for Skills and Enterprise. Solartron Metrology said: “We’re absolutely delighted that our investment in employees taking up vocational education has been recognised in this year’s VQ Employer of the Year Awards. Not only do vocational qualifications help the individual achieve their career goals, but they are also hugely beneficial to us as a business.” Held on the 4th June 2014, VQ Day is an annual event led by independent education charity, the Edge Foundation. It aims to celebrate the benefits of technical, practical and vocational learning, not only to the individual but also to UK PLC. From 16-year-olds to

those over 60, VQ Day celebrates the acquisition of new skills and encourages parity of esteem between high quality vocational qualifications and academic ones. Jan Hodges OBE, CEO of the Edge Foundation: “Solartron Metrology has been shortlisted for this year’s VQ Employer of the Year Award for championing technical, practical and vocational skills within its workforce. It’s very important for us to recognise companies like Solartron Metrology that have invested in their people and practical learning. In doing so it sends a strong message about the value of vocational qualifications, training and the benefits they bring to both employers and the economy.” For more information about VQ Day and the VQ Employer of the Year Awards, please visit www. vqday.org.uk

“This year, 300 directors names were put forward, from which we had just under 100 entries to consider for the awards,” said Rodger Broad, Director of the IoD South. “After some difficult decisions, the Judges have whittled this down to 21 finalists across eight categories.” John Minards, South East Regional Leader of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, major sponsors of the competition, said: “The IoD awards celebrate some of the finest Directors in our region who, in spite of the challenging backdrop, have demonstrated exceptional leadership and best in class performance. “The quality and depth of the individuals short-listed for the awards leaves me confident that our region will continue to grow in 2014 and beyond.” Andy and other finalists from across the whole of London and the south east of England will find out if they have been successful at the sold out Awards Gala Dinner in June, in the prestigious surroundings of the Nash Room at the Institute of Directors in Pall Mall, London.

The film is being screened as part of the monthly Eco Cinema, host by grassroots community organisation,

Community Development Worker commented “Spotlight are a charity with a professional approach to teaching performing arts in a ‘fun way’. The workshops will be affordable to everyone” Spotlight UK, based in Basingstoke, was founded as a charity to support the local community in April 2009, with an aim to provide a wide range of affordable activities to help increase confidence and self esteem, social interaction and mental wellbeing. The Theatre School started with just six children and one dance class in that April, and by September there were over 300 children coming every week to a range of performing arts classes. Spotlight UK’s Theatre School is not about the best dancers, singers, actors and actresses. It is about every child, no matter their background, getting the best chance to perform, shine, and express themselves, while having great fun in the process. Yet that doesn’t mean second rate performances and slow or no progress. They have an incredibly talented team of coaches offering

cider and wine and plenty of local entertainment throughout the weekend. And for the kids… we have face painting, a bouncy castle fun run and cookery classes! Please call 01243 839316 or go to our website www.tastefestival.net for further details. • Concorde is a social club which provides friendship and companionship for single people. It is not a dating club but any members who form relationships or marry remain members. It meets every Tuesday at the Walnut Tree, Runcton, and holds a variety of events throughout the year. New members are very welcome. Anyone who would like more information can visit

a range of activities to suit all ages and abilities. In Chichester the lovely Katie Appleton and Laura Mason will be running the lessons. Laura Mason currently lives in Brighton, and when she’s unable to work as an actress, she runs front of house for a local Theatre. She has a long list of performing arts qualifications and experience, and is “delighted to be involved with Spotlight and is passionate about helping young people develop and flourish into confident and able adults through Drama and performance”. Katie Appleton is a student studying Psychology at the University of Chichester. She’s done teaching at other Spotlight branches in the past as well as other youth work. She’s really excited to launch these classes in Chichester after having a wonderful time at the Easter Holiday club. Katie is convinced that “performing arts are a brilliant way for children to express themselves and build on their personality”. So together they have almost everything in place, all they’re missing is you!

Volunteer group maps Chichester’s local food journeys

Local food writer Rosemary Moon

VOLUNTEERS from Transition Chichester, a group of like-minded people intent on celebrating and conserving the individuality, richness and abundance of Chichester, have presented the findings of their 3-year project to map the routes to market of Chichester’s local food. Local food was defined as being produced and/or available within an 8 miles radius of Chichester’s historic market cross. This information is now shared on the

Transition Chichester website for all to access and use. It not only shows who is growing, processing and producing local food, but who retails and distributes it. It highlights the abundance of cafes, restaurants and bars in the City centre and also the difficulties in sourcing local, seasonal food in the main shopping areas on a day to day basis. The map of Chichester’s food, with its accompanying report, was presented to an audience of city, district and county councillors and

officials, as well as some producers, restaurateurs and food writers, at a meeting at George Bell House, kindly hosted by the Dean & Chapter of Chichester Cathedral. Local food writer Rosemary Moon has been involved in the project from the beginning. A toolkit to enable groups to map their local food economies in a uniform way, produced by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), was tested by the volunteer group. She explains: “Some friends and I had looked at mapping to find out exactly what is happening with local food in the Chichester area, but it was a mammoth task and went into the Too Difficult pile. When the CPRE toolkit came along we decided to do the work for everyone’s benefit. We also hope that it will help raise the profile of all the wonderful food that we produce in this area. Our rich and fertile area is highly valued by the supermarkets for producing fruits and veg, but direct access to this West Sussex bounty is not available to the consumer without many extra food miles added through distribution and warehousing.”

240 businesses were identified who encompassed local food food production is second only to tourism in our area. Customers wanting to access local food must generally travel outwards, visiting shops in the suburbs or farm shops several miles outside the city centre. Susie Kershaw, one of the coauthors of the report, said that ”The format of the collection process allowed us to gather opinions about current practice and ideas for improvement from a range of businesses who handle locally sourced food on a regular basis.” At the presentation all the businesses that TC invited were keen to support, and gave some excellent feedback and ideas for promoting local food. Jenny Cole who masterminded the data collation from the group of volunteer interviewers pointed out saying: “The lack of shops selling local food in the city centre really bothers me. We have only one independent greengrocer.” “And where are our local warehouses, there’s a small one in Bosham, but the nearest general warehousing

we found is in Henfield or north Hampshire.” In a foreword to the report His Grace the Duke of Richmond wrote that “Understanding how and where our food is produced and sold is essential if we are to be able to celebrate West Sussex as a beautiful, rural and richly productive county in decades to come. This food mapping project has been undertaken by volunteers from Transition Chichester, working partly in conjunction with the Campaign to Protect Rural England. They are now keen to share their findings with Decision Makers throughout the county. I commend their work to you and encourage you to share it with others”. The information is now available to all and Transition Chichester’s volunteers hope that it can be used by business support and economic development groups to identify ways of helping all those involved in local food to be able to provide local food to local people, easily, regularly and as simply as possible for the good of the customers and businesses large and small.

Are Bank Holidays over-rated?

AS THE FOURTH bank holiday in just over a month passes, new research reveals that national days off work may not be as popular as we thought. There are eight Bank Holidays a year, and yet, for many people this is simply too much, as new research conducted on behalf of www. thinkmoney.co.uk has revealed that 7.6% of people dislike these breaks. Indeed, the equivalent of 1.5

million people across the country say they “hate” Bank Holidays, despite the widely-held assumption that the population welcomes this extra time off. In fact, less than a third of respondents (29%) claim they “love” Bank Holidays. Location plays a big part in attitudes to bank holidays, with Londoners the most positive about them (71% either said they either like or love bank holidays), followed

by the North East (65% love or like bank holidays) while people living in Wales were the most negative, with 17% of residents claiming to either dislike or hate the enforced time off. Age has an influence on how welcome or not an impending bank holiday might be too. 43% of respondents aged between 18 and 34 said they loved bank holidays, contrasting with just 14% of over-

55s, of whom one in 10 (9.7%) said they disliked or hated bank holidays. Surprisingly, the number one reason for disliking Bank Holidays is that people find them “boring”. A third (31%) of people who do not like the breaks gave this reason. One in five (21%) Bank Holiday haters, meanwhile, cite the traditionally horrendous traffic on the roads at these times of year as their reason for loathing the holidays. And more than one in 10 (11%) admit it is because they are often called upon to work while others have time off, while 6% claim they do not enjoy them because they don’t earn money on these days. More than one in 20 (6%) say they do not like Bank Holidays because the weather is often poor. And a brave 2% admit the root of their dislike is that it means they have to spend time with their family. Ian Williams, spokesman for thinkmoney, said: “While most of us eagerly look forward to each Bank Holiday as it gives us a little extra time off to relax, unwind and spend

time with our families, this spring Bank Holiday there will be many who won’t relish the thought of the extra Monday lie-in. “For some people it’s the very thought of more time with the family that they find most unattractive, especially if that’s combined with a few hours stuck in a tailback. Of course for many people, especially those in retail and hospitality, a Bank Holiday is just another working day and perhaps an especially busy one at that. But perhaps we should spare a thought for those – such as the self-employed – who count the cost of the Bank Holiday as a day they can’t earn.” * Londoners Biggest Bank Holiday Fans * Bank Holidays Least Popular in Wales * ‘Boring’ Bank Holidays Bring Dread to Britons * Bank Holidays Most Unpopular with Over-55s * Traffic, bad weather and forcedfamily time bank holiday turn-offs

Half Term phone nagging!

If you are anything like me, it drives me mad when my children are on the phone constantly. They get in the car when you pick them up from a party, kiss you ‘hello’ and sometimes a good conversation happens! Other times they start instagraming, texting, face booking, snap chatting, tweeting, or what ever it may be and before you know it you are having a conversation with yourself. It is soooo annoying! So it seems us 30/40 something’s with teenage children just have to accept this as a way of life now, and a

Denise Kelly Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist way that the children communicate. Or do we? A major investigation into whether mobile phones and other wireless technologies affect children’s mental development is getting under way,

and to be honest it’s about time too. I have been worried about information that has been available to us for years, but nothing has been concrete. Finally the government are putting time and money into really checking to see the long-term effects of such use. The study, (funded by the government and industry) will track 2,500 11- and 12-year-olds from September 2014. It will look at their cognitive ability, their thinking skills, memory and attention, and then repeat the tests in 2017, so it is quite a long way off, but it’s a start. The researchers say “very little” is known about what impact these technologies have on children. The World Health Organization has said research in this area is of the “highest priority” and I couldn’t agree more. More than 160 secondary schools in the outer London area will receive invitations to enroll pupils into the study. Much of the research into mobile phone use has focused on adults and in particular, the risk of brain cancer. No evidence of harm has been established to date, but every

Dangers of mobile phones There’s a large amount of evidence stating that mobile phones could affect the protective barrier between the brain and blood, allowing toxins to enter.There is also evidence that mobiles could be damaging our immune systems, reducing sperm motility and causing tumours, Alzheimer’s, strokes and autism. study that has been completed seems to point the finger disturbingly at mobile phones being directly linked to many diseases. Nonetheless, NHS advice is that children under the age of 16 should use mobile phones only for essential purposes and, where possible, with hands-free kits. The theory has been put forward that children’s brains may be more susceptible because they are still developing. This research is led by Imperial College of London and will put that idea to the test by asking children and their parents about their use of mobile phones and wireless devices,

such as tablets, as well as analyzing data from operators. The 11-12 age group is particularly important as many children get mobiles at that age to coincide with starting secondary school. Some 70% of that age group now owns a mobile. As mobile phones are a new and widespread technology central to our lives, carrying out the study is important in order to provide the evidence base with which to inform policy and through which parents and their children can make informed life choices. This is essential research that really should have taken place years ago, but better late than never.

There is nothing more important than looking after your health to accomplish a thriving and vibrant life.

Nearly half of employees in the South East know a colleague who has quit work due to stress NEARLY HALF of employees (42%) in the South East say they know a colleague who has had to quit work due to stress. The research, by Capita Employee Benefits, also reveals that almost eight in 10 workers (78%) have been stressed at work in the past year. Findings show employers in the South East are failing to support their stressed workforce as a quarter (25%) of people, who have personally suffered with stress, say after they addressed the issue with their employer nothing was done. Based on findings of a survey of people in full-time employment in the South East, the research shows almost half of employees (44%) feel that their employer has a responsibility to help them manage their personal health and wellbeing. Alistair Dornan, head of health and risk management at Capita Employee Benefits, commented: “A shocking 15.2 million working days were lost to stress, depression and anxiety in 2013* and, as these results show, employees clearly feel they’re not getting the support

they need to be able to deal with stress to the point where people know colleagues who’ve been forced to quit. Considering the cost of absenteeism, lowered productivity and talent leaving organisations on organisations’ bottom lines – it’s vital employers start taking stress seriously. “To tackle the growing stress epidemic organisations must encourage an open dialogue about stress with staff. Half the problem with stress is that it can be a silent issue – with people simply taking time off because they can’t face work. “Employers need to be able to spot stress trends so they can look to create ways of mitigating that stress before it takes hold. Conducting a detailed risk assessment and auditing the health and wellbeing of an entire workforce will help an employer to spot patterns. For example, if once a year a department has higher than average absenteeism rates, then stress could be a contributing factor. Providing targeted health benefits for the whole of workforce such as expanded access to private

Fashion & Lifestyle Fashion boss who scooped £200 million in cash still drives seven-year-old car

WHEN MAHMUD KAMANI floated his family fashion firm Boohoo. com for £700 million in March, his phone started ringing. ‘Someone rang to ask if I wanted to buy a jet. Someone even asked if I wanted to buy a football club. I said

to him: “Are you on drugs?’” But so far Kamani, despite being as wealthy as Simon Cowell, has eschewed the trappings of his dotcom millionaire status. ‘Nothing has changed. Since I floated I have not bought a

helicopter, no new cars, no new house. I’m not a lottery winner, I can’t just take the money and walk away,’ he says. ‘This is my life and I have to remember I’ve got a big job here. I’ve got people betting on me to succeed.’ So far those people who bet on Kamani may be a little disappointed. As with many dotcom firms, such as rival fashion group Asos, shares have plummeted in the past two months, by 40 per cent for Boohoo. Kamani cashed in a healthy chunk of his share of the firm at the float, raking in more than £200 million in cash. But unlike some other flotations, where owners have sold most of their stakes, he still owns 24 per cent and relatives’ holdings boost the family stake to over 40 per cent. A recent survey estimated the total family wealth to be £300 million.

A NEW display in the National Motor Museum, The Motorcycle Story, was opened today (14th May). In welcoming guests on behalf of his father, Lord Montagu, the Hon Ralph Montagu said: “We are now well over half way through a total re-display of the National Motor Museum which has been several years in development and aims to improve the way we tell the story of motoring and motorcycling and display our celebrated collection of vehicles. The latest phase is the

display of our motorcycle collection in The Motorcycle Story.” Following a ribbon cutting, motor racing commentator, Murray Walker, was invited to unveil a plaque marking his father, Graham Walker’s role as the first curator of the motorcycle collection at Beaulieu, beside a display case celebrating his life and achievements. Unveiling the Motorcycling Icons Wall of Fame were two of the icons, 11 times British Trials Champion, Sammy Miller

and Britain’s most successful female motorcycle trials rider, Becky Cook. The Motorcycle Story takes the visitor on a journey through motorcycling history and the human quest for freedom, individuality and the desire to win. For the first time, machines are displayed in their historical and cultural context; tying technological developments to changing trends in fashion, style and sport. Supporting artefacts include clothing worn and trophies won by

Chichester RC to appear at Twickenham for Aviva Premiership Final

World Cup winner Lewis Moody

CHICHESTER under-12s head coach Kerry Stanton wants his starlets to make the most of their Twickenham experience this weekend, insisting they fully deserve their time on the big stage. As Saracens and Northampton Saints do battle to determine who walks away with this year’s top

prize at the Aviva Premiership Grand Final this Saturday, the hallowed Twickenham turf will be graced by Chichester’s young guns at half-time. And much like Sarries and Saints, Chichester faced an arduous journey to make it to Rugby HQ as they came out on top of the Land

Rover Premiership Rugby Cup festival hosted by Harlequins in October. Chichester finished top of the pile as the great and the good of local grassroots rugby came together and their prize is a spot in the ‘Parade of Champions’ during half-time of the Aviva Premiership Grand Final. And after toppling all those before them to make it to Twickenham, Stanton is urging his players to soak up the experience as they share the spotlight with their idols. “The kids are really looking forward to visiting Twickenham, although I don’t think it’s really hit home yet because of our busy season,” he said. “Even during the period of bad weather we still managed to organise games and we won a tournament on the Isle of Wight recently. “As a competitive side they’ve

only conceded six tries this season and there’s similar strength across all of the age groups at Chichester. “Twelve of my squad are going to the Harlequins youth trials later this month, so it’s an exciting time for them with the trip to Twickenham coming up too.” Launched in the 2008-09 season, the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup is the first national grassroots tournament officiated by Premiership Rugby and run in conjunction with all 12 clubs. And while some of Chichester under-12s’ Twickenham experience will start and end this Saturday, World Cup winner Lewis Moody is adamant the occasion will continue to have a positive effect on their lives. “The teams taking part in the Parade of Champions worked hard to win their respective cup competitions and they fully deserve this fantastic reward,” Moody said.

“The kids will get to see and experience Twickenham and be on centre stage, get to walk on to the pitch and they will be walking on the same grass that their international heroes will be walking on in a year’s time at the World Cup. “My first game at Twickenham was when I was 18 I think for the England Under-21s and it was before or after one of the internationals and it was still an amazing occasion. “There was a bit of a sparse crowd then but for these kids it was be a packed house as it is just before the kick-off so they will get the experience the noise and atmosphere which is fantastic.” Lewis Moody is a Land Rover ambassador. Land Rover supports grassroots rugby and provides the opportunity for 7000 youngsters to take part in the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
