Save Saltdean Lido Campaign update Lots of people have asked what has happened to the Save Saltdean Lido Campaign and what’s happening with the lido site so hopefully we can explain! The SSL is now over having succeeded in its goal of securing the departure of the former leaseholder, the developer Dennis Audley. Although the campaign group have saved the lido site from residential development it is not safe. This is where Saltdean Lido Community Interest Company comes in with its vision and plans to provide a sustainable future for the lido site. Brighton & Hove City Council have confirmed that they have completed their first stage research on who might be interested in running the Lido. They are currently preparing a report which is due to be considered by the Council's Policy & Resources Committee in January 2013. We will take part in any future tendering or procurement process and as the only bidder who proposes to ensure the lido is owned by the community, reinvesting profits back into this unique asset to ensure its long term use by future generations, we believe we have a very strong bid. There are two things we’d like you to do to support our bid! 1. Join Saltdean Lido CIC as a member. Its £5 per person annually with each person having a vote at our AGM and the opportunity to shape the CIC. It’s really important we have as many local members as possible so we can demonstrate support so please don’t delay and get your application form off today! 2. Attend the public exhibition of our plans. It will be your opportunity to ask questions, meet the directors and get a real feel for what we are proposing for the site and how we intend to make it happen. The exhibitions will take place at St Nicholas Church Hall, Saltdean – Sat 12th Jan 3.30pm – 6.00pm & Sun 13th Jan 2.30pm – 6.00pm.

Please return with a cheque for £5 per person to Saltdean Lido CIC, 36 Brambletyne Avenue, Saltdean, BN2 8EJ.

Computer tips from Dolphin Computer Upgrades Computer Tips & Advice 39

SECURITY Without wanting to sound all bah humbug in the run up to the festive season, there have been an increased number of burglaries and break-ins in our area over the last couple of months. Unfortunately, robberies and Christmas seem to go hand in hand - no seasonal cheer amongst thieves it appears. So what can we do about it? Well your local neighbourhood watch have some very sound and sensible advice, but we too can offer some words of wisdom as to how technology can help you – and how you can protect your technology. Most people have heard of CCTV, but the new generation of security cameras are referred to as IP (or Internet Protocol) cameras. These cameras can record and broadcast to computers, mobile phones and tablets (like an iPad). The information these cameras pick up can be saved to a cloud device so everything is held securely off your premises. The images recorded on IP cameras have been used successfully in the past with sending data onto the police. Should the worst happen and thieves do get into your property you need to ensure you have security

measures in place for your technology. A laptop this is exquisitely tempting for a burglar – so easy to slip under an arm and walk out with. Do you have all of your data backed up? If so, do you use an external backup so that your information is stored “off site”? Do you have a password set up before anyone can access your laptop; or your mobile phone? Do you have software on your phone that will mean you can not only track it but can also disable it? We may not be able to prevent burglaries but there are measures we can put in place to protect ourselves and our property. Apologies for being the harbingers of doom – we sincerely hope that you have no problems over the festive season and wish you all a peaceful Christmas.

Local history Part 9

Local History - Part 9 Victorian Christmas Celebrations Mike Laslett

During the first ten years of Queen Victoria’s reign her beloved husband Prince Albert introduced the German custom of having an indoor tree at Christmas. He also encouraged the sending of Christmas cards. Postmen in Victorian England were popularly called "robins" because of their red uniforms. The Post Office developed from the carriage of the royal mails and red was considered a royal colour. Thus red was chosen for early uniforms and for painted letter-boxes, as you can still see today when you post a letter. As any reader of Dickens will be aware, there were exceptionally severe snowfalls during the nineteenth Century.

songs before the family and their guests. The mummers would then be rewarded with pork pie and cider. After the mummers’ departure the room had to be aired as most of the players were poor labourers wearing unwashed smocks! May I take this opportunity to wish you a happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year. I look forward to offering you more fascinating facts from our area in 2013.

Thus early Christmas cards often showed red breasted robins and snowy scenes, rather than religious imagery. As a small child, the novelist Angela Thirkell often stayed with her artist grandfather Sir Edward Burne-Jones at North End House, Rottingdean. In part of her book “Three Houses” she remembers Christmas in the 1890’s. In the week before Christmas waits* would earn sixpences by calling at the larger village houses to sing hurried and mangled versions of “Good King Wenceslas.” In the early hours of Christmas morning a candlelit search of a stocking often produced treasures such as sweets, a prayer book, a dormouse and gloves, but always a tangerine in the toe. The William Morris carpet would be rolled back on Boxing Night for local mummers to perform plays and

PARC Appeal

31 31

PARC Launches Appeal for Connor's Court and Owen's Shelter PARC, a local childrens charity, is launching a double appeal for funds for our next two projects. One is Connor's Court, a multi use games area for Rottingdean Seafront to be dedicated to the memory of Connor Saunders who tragically died in Rottingdean in April. We need to raise a further £16,000 to make this happen in time for Spring next year. "5 is Alive" is a new original music CD recorded by local musicians in tribute to Connor and to raise money for the court. Copies of the CD are available from the PARC Charity Shop in Rottingdean and cost £7 each. Donations of cash or goods for the shop will be gratefully received.

Cheques should be made payable to PARC and sent or dropped into the PARC Charity Shop 42-44 High Street Rottingdean BN2 7HR Donations of clothes, books, toys, bric-a-brac are always needed and help us to reach our funding targets.

Owen's Shelter is a proposed new teenage seating shelter for Saltdean Skate Park in memory of Owen For any further information you can contact me on Bergin who sadly died recently. Owen was a keen catherine.taylor6@btinternet.com skateboarder and loved the skate park in Saltdean, so his friends asked us to help put a memorial seat by the skate park where teenagers and others can sit and watch the skateboarding. Saltdean Residents Association has generously pledged £3,000 towards this appeal and Councillor Mary Mears has identified a sum just over £2,000 from interest on the Ocean Hotel Section 106 money. Another £2,000 is needed, so donations would be very welcome as above. PARC raised the money to build the Skate Park in the first place and has recently funded the street markings and signs on the toddlers cycle track in the Oval play area.

Body talk with Peter Alexander

Shingles Cases of shingles crop up regularly at the Pain Solutions Clinic, as one of the major symptoms is pain, located in the mid-back, ribs and head. Shingles is a common condition and approximately one in four people will develop symptoms in their lifetime. The elderly, young people and those with a depressed immune system are most likely to suffer from it. Shingles is a reactivation of the virus that causes chickenpox. After laying dormant in the spinal cord for many years the virus can travel down a nerve to the skin and cause a rash of red spots, sensitivity and burning pain, often to the trunk or face. Sometimes sufferers also experience headache, fever and enlargement of the lymph glands. As the condition progresses fluid filled blisters develop and crusting of the skin can occur. Pain killers and antiviral medication are useful in alleviating the symptoms. Most people recover after a few weeks although sometimes pain and discomfort continues for months afterwards . Although it’s not clear what causes the reactivation of the virus it may be linked to having a weakened immune system. This may be due to chronic tiredness, emotional stress or perhaps due to the body dealing with a long term illness. Sometimes a complication known as post-herpetic neuralgia can develop with pain in the area where the

rash was located. It is thought that this occurs as a result of the nerves being irritated or damaged by the virus. Capsaicin cream has been found to be useful in dealing with this complication. It contains a chemical compound found in chilli peppers. Although shingles is not contagious to most people, if a person hasn’t had chickenpox before they are at risk of catching it from someone with shingles. There is now a vaccine for shingles called Zostavax which is designed to reduce the incidence of the condition, particularly for elderly and vulnerable people. It has recently been made available on the NHS for the over 50’s but won’t be effective for post-herpetic neuralgia.

Lido’s Got talent Update

Result of the Lido talent contest. Sometimes our kids get some undeserved bad press. We like to tut and wag our fingers in their general direction and remind them how different things were when we were that age. Then they go and do something so wonderful that you want to shout how brilliant they are from the highest rooftop! Saturday 3�� November was just such an occasion. A bunch of kids aged 9-17 kept a packed Saltdean Lido audience enthralled for more than two and a half hours during the final of “The Lido’s Got Talent” competition. Amongst the audience was The Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Bill Randall. His presence was really appreciated by everyone especially the kids. The winner of the show had been promised a spot on the Mayor’s Variety Show at Hove Town Hall next April so they were out to impress!

when looking like this. The stage had been extended in size , decorated especially for the event , and the lighting and sound were top notch. At the end of the evening every contestant received a trophy from the Mayor which was a nice touch. When the Mayor asked ALL the top three if they would like to perform at his Variety Show they all nodded enthusiastically to applause from the audience. I have a feeling these kids won’t let you down Mr Mayor!

The quality and variety of talent on show was Review by Chris Nieto staggering. Singers, songwriters, dancers, musicians, rap artists and street dancers. Sometimes these kind of evenings have a tendency to drag on , but in all honesty the evening just flew by. A marvellously enthusiastic audience more than played its part but these kids didn’t need much encouragement. An impressive panel of industry professional judges started to look concerned as they became aware of the task ahead of them in separating these acts. In the end the grand prize went to Woodingdean based “Brighton School of Singing”. Their 18 piece modern choir performed the Bruno Mars song “Runaway Baby” with such gusto, joy and technical ability that it was almost impossible to resist – worthy winners. Second place went to 14 year old street dancer Callum Saunders from Saltdean, and wow can that boy dance! Third place went to Mia Williams-Watson from Lewes who sung an absolutely stunning version of the Eta James classic “At Last”. A delightfully cheeky dance routine from 9 year old Amy Cooper from Peacehaven won the hearts and marks of the judges in the under 12 section. In between all the talent, a raffle and charity auction took place, and altogether over £1000 was raised for “Children in Need” and several hundred pounds more for local children’s charities. Saltdean Community Centre should take a bow for donating the use of their premises free of charge for the occasion, and what a lovely room the Lido Main Hall is

Neighbourhood Watch

Sussex Police warn residents in the Deans about a spate of burglaries. Advice leaflets have been delivered by the Police to homes in the immediate locality of the recent crimes. To help warn as many of you as possible we have reproduced the main security messages from the leaflet Always lock doors & windows even if you go out for a short while or if you spend time upstairs. Leave any keys in a safe place well away from doors & windows. Never leave spare keys outside your property. Thieves know all the usual hiding places such as under mats & plant pots. Draw your curtains after dark & use timer switches for lights when you are out to give the impression you are in. If you notice anything suspicious call the police straight away on 101. Always dial 999 in an emergency. Sussex Police have specially trained Crime Prevention Officers who will be happy to visit your home & carry out a free security survey. Call Sussex Police on 101 to arrange. Christmas holidays are a special time when families and friends come together to celebrate the season. It is also the time of year where families and friends are most generous and practice the tradition of gift giving. It should be a joyous and happy time for all of us. Unfortunately, home burglars view the holiday season a little differently. For them, it is a time of opportunity to visit your home for cash, credit cards, and all the new gifts of small electronics, computers, jewellery, and other easily sold valuables. These tips will help you enjoy the holidays without incident.

When shopping for your Christmas presents take special care to keep your bags, purse or wallet and other valuables close to you at all times. It only takes a moment of distraction for the opportunist thief to steal them. Don’t openly display your Christmas tree and gifts in the front window so it’s easily visible from the street. It’s too tempting for them to come back later that evening and take all your carefully wrapped packages. Burglars prefer to enter through unlocked doors or windows. One holiday problem can occur when exterior Christmas light extension cords are run inside through a window and prevent it from being secured, so get a professionally installed socket fitted outside for those outdoor lights. Don’t leave descriptive telephone answering machine messages like, “You’ve reached the Wilson’s…we’re away skiing for the Christmas holidays…please leave a message.” Burglars love to hear that they have plenty of time to break in and completely ransack your home. After Christmas day, don’t pile up empty gift boxes from your new computer, DVD player, games console or stereo receiver on the street for the bin-men. Burglars appreciate knowing that you have expensive gifts inside for them to steal. Break them down, cut them up and put them in black sacks to conceal the items better.

Health & nutrition advice

Bridgeford’s Best Bites:

Rainbow Foods Grandmother taught the fundamentals to good health: "eat your fruit and vegetables", i.e. a rainbow diet. Dr Ray Vartabedian devised a system assigning nutrition- Blue Blueberries (14) al values (www.nutripoints.com) for foods to help you Indigo Bilberries (3oz 10) make better choices for maximum benefit. e.g. 2 cups of Violet Eggplant/Brinjel/ Aubergine, cooked (34), Figs, raw spinach is 75 nutripoints whereas 2 cups of green dried (1w 2.5) lettuce is 34. Fruit and vegetables are our Nutri Heroes Black Blackberries (26), Blackcurrants (25.3) and there are also Nutri Zeros with negative nutripoint White values! Cauliflower, raw (37.5),Turnips, cooked (36), Turnips, cooked (19.5),Mushrooms, fresh (35) Add up the points for the foods you eat in a day and see Parsnips, raw (23),Parsnips, cooked (17), Onions, raw where you can make different choices to improve your (16) nutripoints. 25 = very poor, 50 = poor, 75 = fair, 100 = Potato, baked (17), Potato chips (8 salted 0) good, 150 = excellent, 200+ = superior diet.
