All the nice girls love a Sailor

From Jenny Rowney

This was very true saying at a Catherington WI meeting when where Roger Glancefield and his wife entertained by a talk on historical navy officers uniforms and how they had evolved over the years. We were fascinated as Roger paraded the various uniforms and explained how they were worn including the jackets, shirts, hats, breeches and boots. At over six foot tall Roger was able to demonstrate the various changes that had occurred and certainly looked the part , very dashing indeed. There was plenty of interest in the talk with the naval dockyard being so much a part of Portsmouth. Also quite a few of the members were either ex wrens or had husbands in the service Unlike the army the officers in the Navy could not buy their rank but had to learn and take exams to enable them to gain seniority which made them more professional in their role . We all learned some fascinating facts and hope he will return at a later date to give us one of his other talks.


Women’s Institute’s Craft and Produce Show From Caroline Hellier

Report on my work locally and in Westminster The peaceful public woodland and fishing lake in Waterlooville is now accessible for wheel-chair users following a successful funding bid from the Angling Trust and the Environment Agency, where local volunteers, contractors from Maebill Builders & Groundworks Ltd and Community Payback have been able to further extend the existing all-weather footpath, right down to Billy’s Lake. The ground near the lake has been widened and levelled, and a pathway installed to allow year-round access, particularly for disabled anglers. There are also now two new disabled access fishing platforms to allow wheelchair users to fish comfortably. The path which now continues around part of the lake, starts at the Southdown View car park where there is free parking. Lillian Wakely, Community Conservation Officer for The Billy’s Lake Project, has worked in partnership with both Horizon Disabled Angling Club and

Off the Hook Fishing Club to ensure the improvements are suitable for both ablebodied and less able-bodied members of our community who want to get out and enjoy nature in the suburbs. “This project would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of the Billy’s Lake Volunteers, Maebill Builders and Groundworks Ltd and Community Payback who have all contributed enormously to the project by providing free labour, high quality workmanship and a sensitive work ethic”. A plaque, made by Havant Men’s Shed has been installed to dedicate the new area in memory of Dawn Pulley, the late wife of Roger Pulley, one of the Billy’s Lake Volunteers’, who used to enjoy looking after the area. If you are interested in joining the team of volunteers, or joining the local fishing clubs please contact Lillian Wakely on 023 9225 8423 or lillian.wakely@acorncentre.org.uk


Clanfield Challenge Clanfield was once again home to over a 1,000 runners of all ages and abilities, taking part in one of the five routes through the South Downs for the fourth year. Now a firm fixture in diaries of runners near and far, this friendly, family oriented event brings in visitors from across the South who enjoy the chance to run through the stunning local countryside along fun but challenging routes designed by the Clanfield Joggers. This year, to bring a smile to the faces of those taking on the ‘Challenge’, the route was lined with humorous and motivational messages such as: ‘I thought they said ‘rum’! The event is organised by volunteers from - Clanfield Joggers, Serenity Digital, AdvanceSRM and Walker Accounting Services. One Facebook review summed it up: “Again, such a superb, brilliantly run, brilliantly organised, great atmosphere, totally enjoyable day. Speaking after the event, she


said “I’ve never been to the Clanfield Challenge before or knew it was as big as this! its really friendly, there are people who are taking the races really seriously, there are others who are enjoying just walking it, so it caters for everyone and there is absolutely no snobbishness. First to cross the line for the 5k was 14 year old Alfie Moth, who was attending the race for the first time and was quickly followed by Harriet Burr, also 14 years old. Both members of Havant Athletics Club and regulars at local Park Runs, Alfie was met at the finish line by a ‘very proud, very emotional’ mum and Harriet enjoyed the competitive element of the race which was something she had not experienced before. Beneficiaries included St James Church, Clanfield Junior School, Bluebell Wood, Clanfield Community Pre-school, Catherington Infant School, Hambledon

Every child deserves an excellent education, and I believe in what outstanding schools can do to ensure students reach their full potential. Fortunately, we have so many brilliant schools in the Havant constituency that go the extra mile, and care about creating an environment to learn. More than 90 per cent of children in Havant attend either an Outstanding or Good school. While we are fortunate to have such successful organisations, I am keen to recognise some of the hard-working students that create the learning environment that helps all pupils succeed. That’s why I will be soon be attending Purbrook Park School to hand out my first year’s Member of Parliament School Awards. These are to highlight the local pupils that have shown outstanding leadership or made strong academic progress throughout the year. Pupils at Purbrook Park will be some of the first to receive their Awards this year and I’m pleased many other schools across our constituency are now getting involved

too. I want to keep motivating more students to achieve their best and I’ll be continuing my many school projects to ensure every child in the constituency gets the best start in life. A reminder that my next major constituency event will be my fourth Community Groups and Older Persons Information Fair, taking place on Thursday 4 July from 10am to 2pm at the Meridian Centre in Havant, which is free for all residents. I expect around fifty exhibitors on the day, including those who provide help, support or activities for both older people and other members of the community, from statutory bodies to charities to community groups and clubs. If your organisation would like to exhibit on the day, please email Alan.Mak.MP@Parliament.uk for more information. There will also be a chance to become a Dementia Friend, with a free session taking place at 11am run by Dementia Friendly Havant – no appointment needed.


Primary School and Clanfield Youth FC. Race Director, Ken Finlay from the Clanfield Joggers, summed up the day “It has been fantastic to see so many people come to Clanfield to take part in the run or just enjoy the atmosphere. With our 150 volunteer race-supporters and increasing number of entrants who return every year along with their families, the whole thing just embodies community spirit at its best. Myself and my fellow volunteer organisers would like to extend our thanks to everyone who supports the day, from the marshals to the business sponsors and stall holders, we really couldn’t do it without their enthusiasm and commitment.

CRAFT BEERS - Enjoy Sussex Beers By David Harris, Member of the British Guild of Beer Writers - Email: mydogisfinn@gmail.com

East and West Sussex have between them 53 breweries including seven brewpubs. That is pubs that brew their own beer on the premises. Most have opened in the last 10 years but amongst them is Harvey’s of Lewes who have been brewing since 1790. You should be able to find a good selection of Sussex beers at your local Coop, independent off-licences and specialist bottle shops. West Sussex includes towns such as Chichester, Worthing, Horsham, Crawley and Bognor Regis. The total population is 852,000. East Sussex which stretches along the south coast from Brighton to Rye has a population of 840,000 and includes Brighton and Hove, Hastings, Eastbourne and Lewes. Many Sussex breweries are in rural locations where farm buildings provide an ideal site for a small brewery. Here are my tasting notes on some fine Sussex beers that I have bought recently from local shops. Dark Star Hophead Light Ale 3.8% abv Dark Star were formed in 1994 at the Evening Star pub in Brighton and then moved to Partridge Green, West Sussex in 2010. They were taken over by London based Fuller’s in 2018 who themselves have recently been taken over by the Japanese Asahi group. Dark Star were named after a song by the legendary American rock group, Grateful Dead. Dark Star produce a wide range of cask and bottled beers including

IPA, Porter, Brown Ale, Imperial Stout and Lager. Hophead pours a straw colour with a grapefruit aroma. It is flavoured with Cascade hops and has quite a citrusy flavour.

Langham Brewery Langham Special Draught LSD 5.2% abv Langham were established in 2006 and are based on the Cowdray estate in an old granary barn near Lodsworth, West Sussex. They offer a wide range of cask and bottled beers including Blonde, Saison, Best Bitter, Red Ale, Mild, Porter and a black IPA. Their beers are available at over 200 outlets in the South of England. This is a fine balanced ale with a spicy hop aroma. It pours a rich auburn colour.

Hepworth Prospect Organic Pale Ale 4.5% abv Hepworth started up in 2001 in Horsham but moved to North Heath, near Billingshurst, West Sussex in 2016. This is an organic brewery who have an extensive range of beers including lager, IPA, Blonde, Stout, Bitter and Barley Wine. Beers are available from the cask at selected outlets or in bottles from local shops. This bottle conditioned ale pours a golden colour and has a bitter orange aroma. A slightly tart taste but still a good bitter ale. Harvey’s Copperwheat Wheat Beer 4.8% abv They are one of Britain’s oldest breweries being founded in Lewes in 1790. Harvey’s are still a private family owned business with five family members currently working for the brewery. They bought the Bridge Wharf, Lewes, site in 1838 and having been brewing there ever since. They brew a very wide range of beers, both cask conditioned which are available in their 45 pubs, and bottled beers. They also supply a large number of pubs in London and SE England. On tap you can get Mild, IPA, Best Bitter and Old Ale. Copperwheat is very different from the Belgian and German wheat beers. I thought it was more like a golden ale and had a distinctly hoppy taste.

Goodwood Brewery Grogger Pale Ale 4.5% abv Beer has been brewed at Goodwood since 1738. This an organic beer. Goodwood also offer a lager and American Pale Ale. Their beers are available in cask, keg or bottles and are served at the various outlets on the Goodwood Estate. You should be able to buy Goodwood beers at many local shops. Grogger pours a dark golden colour with an orangey aroma. It has a fine balanced taste and is a good example of an English bitter.

Hayling author Pauline Rowson’s new mystery crime series, Death in the Cove Audiobooks based on a new historical mystery crime series by Hayling Island author Pauline Rowson, author of the popular DI Andy Horton novels set in Portsmouth and the Art Marvik mystery thrillers. The first novel in the series, DEATH IN THE COVE, featuring Scotland Yard detective Inspector Alun Ryga, will be published in September. Rowson’s crime novels have been described as; "Gripping, full of twists and turns, multilayered, and compelling." DEATH IN THE COVE is set in 1950s England, a country still struggling to come to terms with peace in the grip of austerity and rationing. Pauline Rowson says, “The 1950s is a fascinating period where memories of the war are very strong, and the fear of more world conflicts haunt people. Policing in the 1950s was vastly different to today, no mobile phones, no dashing about and no


computers. Scotland Yard were frequently called in to investigate murder cases around the UK and I chose to create a detective with an understanding of the sea gained during his time in the Merchant Navy, and an insight into human nature for both good and evil as witnessed during his days of incarceration in a German prisoner-of-war camp, making him unique in his approach to solving coastal based crimes. I hope readers will enjoy investigating the baffling crimes with Inspector Ryga.” DEATH IN THE COVE (Story Synopsis) Recently promoted to Inspector at Scotland Yard, the former Merchant Navy seaman and German prisoner-of-war is despatched to the Island of Portland in Dorset to solve an unusual and baffling case. The body of a man dressed in a pinstriped suit has been discovered in an

isolated cove on the island by war photographer, Eva Paisley. Ryga is keen to prove his worth on his first solo investigation outside of London. Ignoring the warnings of the local police inspector and the Dorset Chief Constable that his trust in Eva Paisley is misjudged, Ryga quickly realises that her observations could provide the breakthrough he needs in a complex murder investigation and the answer to the haunting circumstances that have sent the man in the pinstriped suit to his death. ABOUT Pauline Rowson Pauline Rowson is the author of nineteen crime novels, fourteen featuring the rugged and flawed Portsmouth detective Inspector Andy Horton, three in the mystery thriller series featuring Art Marvik, the troubled former Royal Marine Commando now an undercover investigator for the UK's National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS) and two standalone thrillers, the award winning, In Cold Daylight and In for the Kill.

Death in the Cove will be published in paperback, as an ebook, on Amazon Kindle and Kobo and as an audiobook in September 2019. Pauline Rowson: pauline@rowmark.co.uk www.rowmark.co.uk 023 9246 3938 ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

Helping Hayling Pupils Grow! Perfect weather conditions were on the cards for an enthusiastic team of nine volunteers to give up their time to help The Hayling College prepare vegetable beds and clear out the pond area for their Growing Together project. Employees from Pfizer, a large pharmaceutical company based in Havant, have volunteered time for many projects over the last few years, and have made a huge difference for many local charities and organisations. For the month of April they were helping the Growing Together Project, set up by Bill Biggs and Ray Jones from Hayling Island Horticultural Society.The objective of the project is to help cross the

intergenerational divide enabling children and adults to work and have fun together growing fruit and vegetables at Hayling College. The volunteers split into two teams; one digging over a large vegetable bed ready for the pupils to plant potatoes, the other team cleared the area around the pond. Preparing the ground will enable the college to run activities, learning basic gardening and teamwork skills. Cheryl a volunteer from Pfizer is a former pupil of the college and still lives nearby. She said,“It’s been interesting to come back to my former school and to see how much has changed. I have enjoyed helping out today, it’s been rewarding to give

something back to my local community.” Ray Jones from Hayling Island Horticultural Society was grateful for the volunteers help “we wouldn’t have achieved this without the team from Pfizer, they are such a nice group of people and we have really enjoyed their company and great conversation.They have worked so hard and we would welcome them back with open arms at any time.” Some of the pupils joined the team and were so helpful and enthusiastic. Louise from Pfizer said,“It’s so nice to see the pupils interacting with Ray from Growing Together and showing him such respect, this proves that what they are trying to achieve is working.”


Southern Co-op supports a host of nature projects More than £34,000 has been donated by a regional co-operative to wildlife projects in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight helping communities discover nature in their neighbourhoods. The funding from Southern Co-op supported a variety of local schemes run by the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust working with schools, children, families and members of the public to benefit the local wildlife. Among the beneficiaries was St Mark's School in Basingstoke. Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust has worked with the school to run sessions with The

Bridge project at St Mark's, which aims to help children who have special educational needs, and an after school club which engages pupils with the wildlife on their school grounds. The Wildlife Trust has also worked with Hatch Warren Nature Group who have restored St Mark's Meadow, from amenity mown grass to a herb rich wildflower meadow next to the school, offering pupils the opportunity to benefit from this revitalised green space through a series of events. Other schemes include resources for eight Wildlife Watch groups across Hampshire and the Island.

HEARTS OF OAK STANSTED PARK JOINS NATIONAL EFFORT TO REBUILD NOTRE DAME Stansted Park Estate in Rowlands Castle has joined more than 100 of the UK’s most famous historic houses, to contribute towards the rebuilding of the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Historic Houses, the national association for independently owned homes and gardens, has rallied its members to support the restoration of the iconic fire-ravaged building. The donor estates have all offered valuable timber, from trees planted centuries ago, to help restore the iconic landmark’s roof, destroyed by fire last month. Michael Prior, Head Forester at Stansted Park, said, ‘The Historic Houses Association asked for similar donations of oak timber after the devastating fire at York Minster in 1984. ‘An estate where l was previously employed sent several fine trees to that

appeal and so it is an honour and fitting that the Stansted Park Foundation can now assist Notre Dame in its time of need.’ The trees are all from sustainable forestry and already destined for use as commercial timber. They are estimated to have a combined market of well over £100,000. But the donors are keen to emphasise that the timber in buildings like Notre Dame are about something that money can’t buy. The scheme was the brainchild of the Duke of Rutland, whose family seat is Belvoir Castle in Lincolnshire. He said, ‘We’re able to donate replacements because my great-great-grandfather had the foresight to plant trees that would only be valuable long after he died. In turn, we’ll replant every tree we fell – someone will need them for something in another few hundred years.’





Kenneth Benton

Buy-to-let involves investing in property with the expectation of capital growth, with the rental income covering the mortgage costs and any outgoings. With the unpredictability of the stock markets and the loss of public confidence in pensions as a way of saving for the future, the UK property market has proved over the long-term to be a very successful investment. However, expenses such as letting fees, maintenance, service charges and insurance, may make the return on the investment less attractive than anticipated. If you are planning to enter the buy-to-let market you will need to consider the likelihood of capital appreciation exceeding inflation. Do: • Think of your investment as medium to long-term • Research the local market • Do your sums carefully Don’t: • Purchase anything with serious maintenance problems • Think that friends and relatives can look after the letting for you – you’re probably better off with a full management service • Cut corners with tenancy agreements and other legal documentation. What about tax on rental income? Income tax is payable on the rents received after deducting allowable expenses including repairs, agent’s letting fees, an allowance for furnishings and a proportion of the mortgage interest. Landlords are no longer able to deduct all of their finance costs (including mortgage interest, interest on loans to buy furnishings and fees incurred when taking out or repaying mortgages or loans) from their property income. They will instead receive a basic rate reduction from their income

tax liability for their finance costs. No relief is available for capital repayments of a mortgage or loan. To give landlords time to adjust the change is being phased in over a four-year period from April 2017: • in 2017/18, the deduction from property income is restricted to 75% of finance costs, with the remaining 25% being available as a basic rate tax reduction • in 2018/19, 50% finance costs deduction and 50% given as a basic rate tax reduction • in 2019/20, 25% finance costs deduction and 75% given as a basic rate tax reduction • from 2020/21, all financing costs incurred by a landlord will be given as a basic rate tax reduction. Replacement of furnishings A relief enables all landlords of residential dwelling houses to deduct the costs they actually incur on replacing furnishings, appliances and kitchenware, excluding fixtures. However, the relief is limited to the cost of an equivalent item if there is an improvement on the old item. How we can help With many years’ experience of advising new and existing private landlords on obtaining the right mortgage, and through effective tax planning, we can ensure you receive the best possible outcome from your buy-to-let investment. Please contact us to discuss your situation.

Please come and see us and join in the fun, win some prizes, find some bargains and meet some of our wonderful animals who are looking for their forever homes. Remember I told you about our quiz we held in May? Well I am happy to say it was a huge success with nearly 100 people taking part and having a great evening. I checked in and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves, I thought I better not go and join in, in case I gave away any of the answers. I am already working on the next one, putting together lots of new questions. We always have lots of cats of all sorts of ages at The Centre looking for new homes. Often we have many of what we call ‘Golden Oldies’. These are older cats that are often passed by for a younger cat. Older cats can make great companions and often love to spend their time at home on a

PET OF THE MONTH - THETIS warm lap enjoying your company staying closer to home rather than roaming. Cats can live to late teens and older being a little older they still have many years to give often enjoying playtime too. Unfortunately these cats are quite often over-looked due to their age and we understand that there are concerns of illnesses and veterinary costs. The Centre now has a wonderful programme in place for cats over 14 called our Foster Care Scheme which will provide this ongoing support for you and your cat. If you are thinking of adopting a cat please think about our oldies and give us a call we can explain the scheme in full detail. Let’s find homes for them all. Just look at Thetis our Pet of the Month she has so much love to give you. We hope this scheme will encourage people to consider one of our older cats. We look forward to seeing you very soon. If you are interested in adopting a cat, kitten, rabbit or guinea pig then please call us here at the centre on 01243 641409 between 9-4pm during the week. PS: We have a 27th July 12-2pm. Viewing days are non-appointment days so people thinking of adopting a cat can pop along. Otherwise we rehome 7 days a week by appointment only.

This month allow us to introduce Thetis one of our ‘Golden Oldies’ gorgeous 16 year old tabby girl. Thetis loves human company and is looking for someone who would be able to be with her as much as possible. Thetis arrived at The Centre in February as her owner very sadly passed away and she has been very lonely when the staff and handlers go home. She loves having a cuddle and being stroked and would happily sit with you all day if she could. Thetis would like to go to a nice calm, quiet home. Being an older lady she does have a couple of health issues, suffering from high blood pressure, meaning her eye sight is not 100% and she is pretty deaf, with a very loud meow, also a bit arthritic as well. Due to these health issues and her age Thetis is part of our Full Foster programme this means we cover all her health issues as long as she comes to our vet at The Centre. Any accidents and any emergencies out of hours are not covered but all other treatment is. If you think you may be able to give Thetis the new home she deserves please give The Centre a call Monday to Friday 9am-4pm. We can also explain the foster scheme in full detail.

Heart of Hayling Triple success for Havant on Boxing Academy Hants finals day Hayling Community first responders Harry Broughton and Paul Nelhams who are also volunteer boxing coaches with the Heart of Hayling Boxing Academy, are seen here with a specialised first aid kit donated by the Hayling First Responders to the Academy. The kit primarily assists with strains and sprains which can occasionally occur during the none contact boxing training and having coaches Paul and Harry available ensures expert first aid is at hand. Youngsters in one of the three hour long classes held every Wednesday are seen working out with skipping lines recently donated by the Hampshire police with Hayling PC’s Elliot and Stuart who are in the back line along with Chief Inspector Alex Reading who joined the group in exercise. From age five upwards the boxing programme teaches the basics of the sport along with key skills such as team work, problem solving, research, discussion and social skills. The academy works within the GB ABA structure to gain recognised achievements, give awards, raise aspirations and help individuals to gain mutual respect as some youngsters recognise the art of boxing when

they do not recognise other community aspects. None contact boxing has been found to be a great way to reach those youngsters that are looking for a programme of physical activity not covered in other leisure time pursuits. Although a fee of £2 per session is requested no boxer is turned away if they cannot afford the cost. Sessions are being held weekly at the Hayling Community Centre, Station Road and are open to any youngsters from any background, whether able bodied or with a disability. Three sessions will run on the same Wednesday evenings: 16:30 - 17:00 for 14 to 17 year olds 17:30 - 18:30 for 5 to 13 year olds 18:30 - 19:30 for ladies only Sessions for teenagers and adults are also being held at the Mengham Park sports centre on Wednesdays and Fridays at 20:00. To participate in the boxing sessions contact the academy administrator Wendy Coates on 02392 – 464391 wendylcoates@btinternet.com


Havant Ladies Recruiting and Looking for Promotion! From Lucy King (Ladies Captain)

Following a successful and busy last season, their first in National Challenge 1, Havant Ladies rugby club are looking to the future and have their sights set on promotion to Championship 2. Their 4th place finish in NC1 despite being beset with injuries, earned through several impressive victories including against league leaders London Welsh, proves that they are a force to be reckoned with and has motivated them to finish in the top spot this coming season. Although league matches are over the ladies haven’t lost momentum, with some making County appearances for Hampshire, a great attendance at the Annual Havant RFC Touch tournament organised by coach Dean Dryhurst, and two ladies’ teams entered into the IBM Volleyball tournament. Pre-season training will be starting soon which will see the ladies down the gym and


back out on the pitch for skills training and pre-season friendlies ahead of the league start in September. Although they are a driven and hard-working team, they are also a great fun bunch of ladies of all ages, backgrounds and experience levels with a vibrant social scene and they would love to add more players to the team. Last season two very successful Inner Warrior events saw many new players joining, some of whom even got to pull on a Havant shirt the very next day! With our dedicated and hardworking coaches we are able to give people with little or no experience of rugby (or any sport at all) the training and support required to thrive and fall in love with the sport. We would also be delighted to recruit

Havant Hockey Club finished a fine season in style as they completed a treble on Hampshire finals day to become the most successful club in the history of the competition. Twice Havant came from behind as they beat Fareham 3-2 in the Hampshire Cup to win the prestigious tournament for the fifth time in six years. It follows a strong season for Havant which saw them crowed National League Conference West champions before narrowly missing out on promotion through the playoffs. Although the league champions started as favourites, Fareham took the lead as former Havant midfielder Adam Bloomfield deflected a shot into the roof of the net. Charlie Stubbings equalised before the half-time, neatly powering home a reverse shot from a tight angle. Again, Fareham took the lead in the second half with Jamie Rawlings converting a penalty corner.Yet Havant struck back in

spectacular style as debutant Colin Simmonds, who had been call-up from the second team for the final, scored an overhead slam. With both teams pushing for the win, it was Havant that struck late to seal the trophy when Matt Cotrell set up Mike DellerMerricks to flick the ball into the Fareham goal past the last defender on the line. On a bank holiday Monday success at the Edge Sports Centre in Haslemere, Havant’s Under-18s defeated Bournemouth 3-2, meanwhile completing the hat-trick of wins for the club Havant’s third team upset Fareham’s second team 6-4 to win the Open League Cup. Havant Hockey Club Chairman Chris Pickett said: "I was immensely proud of our success on Hampshire Day, as it demonstrated the playing strength within the men’s section, with a junior, midstream and our elite 1st XI winning their respective cups.”

Three times in one Day Local cyclist, and retired teacher, Mike Harbour from Rowlands Castle achieved a ride up the famous Mont Ventoux in France in for the first time in June 2013 and has ridden it three or four times since then. Last year he challenged himself to do it again, but there are three choices of where to start, – Bédoin, Malaucène and Sault so he decided to attempt all three in one day, and to achieve each climb without putting a foot down until he reached the summit. He writes : ‘I arrived in Malaucène at about 6.30AM with the bike in the back of the car. I cycled the nine miles round to Bédoin to start the first and the most challenging climb. By 7.25 I was standing outside Bédoin on the route to the summit, cramming nuts and dates into my mouth. The breeze, which had been worryingly strong when I had left the house earlier, was almost nonexistent. For me this had always been the starting point for the southern climb, but I wanted to keep careful tabs on my time for this first climb. I needed to avoid going out too fast and ‘blowing up’ later. The road enters the forest after Les Bruns and ramps up to a gradient of over ten percent in places. I knew that the climb would be unrelenting until I reached the Chalet Reynard some eight miles up the road. It was eerily quiet. An older French rider drew alongside and we rode in silence together for a few kilometres before he gradually pulled ahead and disappeared out of sight. 'Don’t try to go with him,' I said to myself,

From Mike Skiffins

I found myself increasing my pace as I headed towards the summit over the bleak moonscape that is the upper slope of the Ventoux. Then, almost without warning, onto the steep ramp up to the observatory and the post that marks the summit at 1,909m. My time had been two hours and nine minutes, only ten minutes slower than my best ever. I had ridden much too fast, and I hoped that I would not pay for it later in the day. I put on my light windproof jacket for the descent to Malaucène. Back at the car I fuelled up, and headed back to start the second climb by just after eleven o’clock. Reaching the top was now feeling distinctly like hard work. A glance at my time, as I stood among fellow cyclists at the observatory, confirmed my worst fears. It was two hours and twentytwo minutes, I was paying for my earlier enthusiasm. Down to Sault and a late lunch thanks to my wife Vanessa. We sat in the park with a view of the relatively gentle south eastern slope of the Ventoux and the lavender fields below. The final climb would be the easiest and I knew that Vanessa would be nearby in the car, I was back on the bike before four o’clock.Vanessa kept passing me in the car and began taking photos on the lower slopes. At the summit I checked my time: one hour and fifty-six minutes. That was twentythree minutes slower than I had previously climbed the mountain from Sault. There really was not much left 'in my tank'. I descended at speed, but taking the opportunity to appreciate the mountains, bathed as they were in the golden, Provençal, evening light.'


BIKERS ASKED TO GEAR UP & SUPPORT NEW COMMUNITY CAMPAIGN Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) have launched their new community fundraising campaign ‘I Ride for HIOWAA’. The campaign calls upon bikers across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight to come together as a community to raise awareness and vital funds for the Air Ambulance. As part of the launch, the Charity have released a biker awareness video. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance Chief Executive and longtime biker, Alex Lochrane commented, “Last month we attended 162 incidents, almost 14% of which were road traffic incidents. As a biker, it’s reassuring to know that the Air Ambulance is there for the biking community should the worst happen.” Bikers are encouraged to join the ‘I Ride for HIOWAA’ Facebook group, a

hub for sharing knowledge, riding anecdotes, motorcycle photographs and safety tips. Graham Earl, who was rescued by HIOWAA in 2017, after he was involved in a collision on his motorbike, commented, “I don’t know how things would have been if it weren’t for the exceptional treatment I received by the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance Critical Care Team at the roadside”

Have a Heart Q Can someone carry on cycling regularly if they have had a heart attack ? A First, anyone who has heart symptoms should see a doctor to find out if it was a heart attack, and secondly they should follow the doctor's advice. Malissa Craig, exercise physiologist at Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital says that for most people exercise will benefit your heart. A friend of mine had a heart attack and was taken to hospital where they fitted a couple of stents to improve the blood flow. The recommendation was to go on a special cardiac fitness course and he is now back on his bike and riding with his friends. My own story is a bit different. In November last year I felt unwell and my doctor's surgery sent me to the hospital for investigation. They referred me to the cardiac centre at Southampton General Hospital who did more tests and made an appointment for me to go in for Open Heart Surgery to replace a valve in my heart. After treatment it took six weeks for me to gradually recover from the surgery but I was under strict instructions not to lift anything heavier than half a kettle of water, and not to do any hoovering, gardening, carry shopping and definitely NO CYCLING. After six weeks I was feeling very well, but the cardiac unit insisted that I still shouldn't lift or cycle, but recommended the special cardiac rehab course to help my muscles recover from six weeks of doing nothing. For many years I have supported the British Heart Foundation by doing sponsored rides and it was my aim to get fit enough to repeat that ride later this year. This has involved doing the full NHS rehab course, and as soon as I was allowed back on my bike, gradually increasing the distance I could cycle. At first it was just 'round the block' on my local streets, but I was soon able to go further and include a couple of stretches of rising road. This was important as a key target was to be able to ride up Portsdown Hill, so I built in a morning ride from Havant to Fort Nelson where I stopped for a coffee and a bun. The actual Round the Harbours ride for BHF starts at the Spring in Havant and goes up Portsdown Hill, before descending to Fareham , and through Titchfield to Hillhead.

Mike Back takes new heart on his bike

From there it follows the coast to Gosport for the short ferry ride to Portsmouth Harbour Station and all along the seafront at Southsea before turning inland to return to Havant. A total distance of thirty miles. It is quite amazing how successful this Major heart surgery is, and how completely people can recover. Part of this is due to the research funded by the BHF over the years, and I am delighted to be able to do this ride and help support them. So, the answer to your question is 'yes' provided they get the right attention and follow their advice.

CTC details can be found on http://www.portsmouthctc.org.uk Mike has set up a donation page on Just Giving, dedicating the ride to the Surgeon and teams at Southampton Hospitals. www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Michael -Skiffins4

All Change at the Westleigh as Hawks Appoint New Management Team for 2019-20 Season After just one year in the Vanarama National League, Hawks return to the Vanarama National League South for the 2019-20 season. Following relegation, it has been all change at the Westleigh. It is now widely known that first team manager Lee Bradbury has left the club. It was perhaps surprising that Bradbury chose to take the job as manager of Eastbourne Borough FC. Borough had clung to their place in the Vanarama National League South by narrowly avoiding relegation in the final match of the 2018-19 season. Following Hawks relegation from the Vanarama National League and Bradbury’s departure, the Club acted quickly to appoint Paul Doswell, Sutton United’s recent Manager, pictured below, on a threeyear deal. Manager: Paul Doswell

Doswell comes to the Westleigh with a wealth of experience in the Vanarama National League and National League South, having previously also managed Eastleigh FC. During his lengthy spell as manager at Sutton United Doswell achieved two promotions with the Gander Green Lane outfit and established them in the Vanarama National League. In his second season at Sutton, Doswell had to work hard to keep them in the National League, but went on to lead the Club into an outstanding FA Cup run, beating English Football League Clubs AFC Wimbledon and Leeds United before exiting in the fifth round in a home tie at Gander Green Lane against Arsene Wenger's Arsenal. After 11 years in charge of the south London club Doswell arrives at the Westleigh to take on a new challenge closer to his home in Winchester. He brings Ian Baird, his number two at Sutton United, with him to work in a similar role. Many Hawks fans will remember Baird from his period as Manager at the Westleigh between 2004 and 2007. Doswell and Baird worked successfully together at Sutton United, before Doswell opted to take a break from management in 2018/19. Baird stayed at Gander Green Lane temporarily filling Doswell’s shoes before returning to the Westleigh to join Doswell for the Hawks 2019/20 campaign

in the Vanarama National League South. Shaun Gale announces his Westleigh Departure: The experienced Shaun Gale has left the Football Club, perhaps clearing the way for him to join Lee Bradbury at Eastbourne Borough. Shaun was expected to remain at the Westleigh as first team coach. However, at the end of May the Club announced that sadly Gale had decided to leave the football club nearly 19 years after joining the Hawks as a player in August 2000. Gale spent his two decades at the Club involved in a wide range of roles from player, manager, assistant manager and community manager. Most fans however will have enjoyed the Hawks recent successive promotions as champions of their Leagues which took them into the Vanarama National League for the first time in the 2018/19 season. Shaun Gale started his playing career with Pompey before spells at Barnet and Exeter City. In August 2000, he moved on a free transfer to Havant & Waterlooville, where he made over 100 appearances in his first two seasons. In February 2004 when injuries ended Gale’s playing career and he took up a coaching role at the Westleigh under Manager Ian Baird. In October 2007 Hawks appointed Gale as manager when Baird departed to then Conference South rivals Eastleigh. Many Hawks fans will most fondly remember Gale managing the side in Hawks historic FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Liverpool at Anfield in the 2007–08 season. Gale had led Hawks to an historic FA Cup run beating Bognor Regis, Fleet Town, Leighton Town,York City and Notts County, before causing a shock by defeating League One side Swansea City 4–2 at a packed Westleigh in a third-round replay. In the fourth round Hawks had a dream draw that saw them play Liverpool FC at a packed Anfield. The match was widely covered by the national sports media and Gale Hawks caused a sensation by twice leading the Reds before losing 5–2. The 2011–12 season was disappointing for the football club. After dropping to second from bottom in the league following a defeat at Basingstoke Town, Gale was dismissed as Manager on 1 April 2012. Gale did, however, agree to remain at the Westleigh as part the Clubs management team, including the role of Community Manager. Gale was Assistant Manager to Lee Bradbury throughout Bradbury’s reign as Hawks manager and played a key part in the management team which achieved back to back promotions to return the Hawks back into the Vanarama National League South in 2017 and the National League in 2018.

From Tim Randall - Sports Correspondent In the community, Shaun Gale has been a through the highs and the tricky moments key part of the success of the Many Shades in the Hawks history, the Club will this of Grey Walking Football Team which has year organise a benefit in his honour.

Heart of Hayling Boxing Academy GB Awards presentaion Following gruelling training sessions held over a number of months, over 60 boxers who attend the Heart of Hayling Boxing Academy aged from 5 - 17 years passed their tests to be awarded either Preliminary or Standard medals and certificates under the GB National Boxing Awards Scheme on Wednesday 12th June. Knox White Hayling Boxing academy mentor for Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy and Clare Jenkins Chief Inspector Hampshire constabulary with some of the successful boxers after having been presented with their awards by Clare, Bruce Gordon Station Manager Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service, The Chair of Hayling Lions,Vice Chair Bruce Mowett and John Cottle of Hayling Businessmen’s Club. Andrew Moon of BBC South – photo 2 above, who was on hand at the medal ceremony to broadcast live for BBC South Today, received a rousing applause for attending with his crew to help promote the Academy. In an interview with C.I. Care Jenkin outlined the positive effects that the

From Wendy L. Coates

academy was having from the police point of view and that the constabulary will continue to support it whole heartedly. Q Shillingford MBE of Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy told Andy Moon that he was amazed how in just 6 months the Hayling academy had taken a firm foothold on the Island and he was already seeing some of the older boxers coming through to his Portsmouth Academy, while as a method of improving health, well being and fitness for old and young alike the results were quite outstanding. Following the awards ceremony Q held a master-class for the young boxers. These ranged from one of our youngest boxers, Lucas Porgorzelsk, to James Dobie: the latter already tipped as a future adult boxing contender. From age five upwards the boxing programme aims to teach the basics of the sport along with key skills such as team work, problem solving, research, discussion and social skills.

The academy works within the GB ABA structure to gain recognised achievements, give awards, raise aspirations and help individuals to gain mutual respect as some youngsters recognise the art of boxing when they do not recognise other community aspects. None-contact boxing has been found to be a great way to reach those youngsters that are looking for a programme of physical activity not covered in other leisure time pursuits. Sessions are being held weekly at the Hayling Community

Centre, Station Road and are open to any youngsters from any background, whether able bodied or with a disability. Three sessions will run on the same Wednesday evenings: 16.30 - 17.00 for 14 to 17 year olds 17.30 - 1830 for 5 to 13 year olds 18.30 - 1930 for ladies only Sessions for teenagers and adults are also being held at the Mengham Park sports centre on Wednesdays and Fridays at 20.00. To participate in the boxing sessions contact the academy administrator Wendy Coates on 023 9246 4391 or by email: wendylcoates@btinternet.com

The Mummy (2017) Think Mission: Impossible meets a horror movie and you know what this movie involves. Lots of good action set-pieces with the living dead. It’s basically a generic Mummy movie with Tom Cruise and a host of other actors outrunning a Mummy-festation. It’s a good, not great movie, to pass the time. The special effects are done well and it does keep you entertained. I would recommend it. It’s quite entertaining.

We hope you found our tips and exercises for shoulder pain in our last article useful. My subject this time is: Cervical Spondylosis- Exercises & Stretches for Neck Pain & Arthritis Here is a testimonial from one of our clients who had neck pain: “I went to Physio-logical after having seen two consultants and another physio…none of whom could do anything for me. I have arthritis in the upper vertebrae of my neck and this causes severe pain in the head and also greatly restricts movement.The consultants could only suggest more and stronger pain killers. Natalie, with her wonderful hands, began to bring relief and slowly greater mobility in my head and neck. I did, at one time, think I would have to give up driving.That, because of Natalie, has proved not to be the case. Now, after some time, I have managed to greatly reduce the medication and at times have been pain free. At the beginning of the treatment, Natalie offered hope where there had been none before. I cannot thank her enough for my enhanced quality of life” (Mrs.B)

a U C t I o n e e r & a n t I Q U e s e n t H U s I a s t H I L a ry B o Lt o n M a ry s e to n Wat t s Over the last twenty years I’ve been lucky enough to turn a life-long interest in “old things” into my current day jobs – auctioneering in Emsworth Auctions and running an antiques & collectables shop, Emsworth Antiques Etc. in the town’s West Street. In my last article I told you a little about George Frederic Watts, the remarkable Victorian artist and visionary. This time I would like to tell you a bit about his second wife, Mary. They married in 1886 when she was 37 and he 69, later settling in Compton, just south of Guildford, where they pursued rich and artistic lives until his death in 1904 and hers in 1938. Mary Seton Fraser Tytler came from a wealthy Scottish family, grew up in a castle, studied arts at Dresden, Kensington and the Slade School of Art.

PAGE: 14

She had strong social reforming views and interests, which were more than mere ideals. She taught art and clay modelling to poor London east-enders and sat on a national committee to further teaching of craft skills for the greater good of all. She also supported women’s rights, latterly being President of the local National Union of Women's Suffrage Society. Anyhow . . . back a few years. Through a close friend who was the sister of Alice Liddell (of Alice in Wonderland fame), Mary joined the circle of artists and writers which surrounded the Isle of Wight home of the pioneering photographer, Julia Margaret Cameron and her neighbour and close friend Alfred, Lord Tennyson. It was here that she and her sisters were photographed by Mrs Cameron, and she met George Frederic Watts. More than 30 years

her senior, in frail health by then, but revered by the nation. Somehow their stars were fixed and intertwined and Mary set herself to aid, champion, succour, exalt and promote the life and work of the man she called “Seigneur” and married. Their partnership flourished, and Mary’s continuing artistic and commercial interests were many and varied. She designed, drew and painted, sculpted and potted, produced fabrics and woven goods and personally decorated their home with plaster and ghesso work. In 1893 she exhibited in The World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, USA. In Compton she also set up a gallery dedicated to her husband’s impressively large works of art, and designed and built a memorial chapel for him – which was opened in 1898, some six years before he died. But much of Mary’s legacy and fame resides in the work of the local villagers with whom she formed The Compton Art Potters Guild. So more about that next time!

They completed a ‘walk to work’ fundraising event for the Alzheimer’s Society. Duncan Cameron, Owner / Director, and fellow care team members Belle Sproates and Becky Webb agreed to walk from Duncan’s home in Haslemere to their office in Havant. It was estimated to be a 24 mile walk, however due to the winding trail through the Hampshire countryside, the total distance travelled was 34 miles and took 12.5 hours. They were joined by other colleagues, friends and clients’ family members. ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The first Emsworth Tree Trail was launched in 2008 and it was rather flimsy paper affair that sold for £1; however, the content was well researched and since then we have produced other small scale editions using the 2008 book as a guide. Volunteers have now produced a new Emsworth Town Centre Tree Trail. Murielle and Frederic Kempf set about the task. Frederic took wonderful photographs which grace the book. He was supported by Eva Mikuska, Malinda Griffin,Yvonne Copeland and Ann Jolly. Copies of the book are now available for sale from outlets around Emsworth. Individual Tree Wardens put money into the project, but the majority of the financial backing came from Emsworth sponsors. Profits from sales will go towards a tree

planting programme during the winter. The book was written with children in mind and has been offered to our local schools for field trips and outside activities. More from brendan.gibbgray@talktalk.net or ycopewaitrose.com

Don’t stop Wining BBQ REDS

Fred’s Food Salads of Substance: Dressed for the occasion

By Jonathan Rogers of VIN Wine Merchants Emsworth

As this popular pastime approaches us, Jonathan looks at what reds are perfect with the bangers and burgers. The question is, are we going to get an amazing summer like last year’s? So far its been a bit mixed, one day nice and hot, the next drizzly and cold. You could argue its not quite summer yet, but it will be upon us very soon. As soon as it does arrive, we tend to brush off the dust and the rust from our outdoor grills and slap on a few burgers and sausages along with whatever else we fancy and enjoy a bit of alfresco dining with friends and family. Every year I am asked about wines that are perfect for summer drinking. Generally, wine is very seasonal with dry crisp whites and rose when it’s hot and full-bodied oaky reds in the winter, but you can enjoy any wine at any time of the year.

a little oak ageing won’t go a miss. I’m thinking Rioja, but at the lower end of the oak scale. Straight Rioja made from Tempranillo and Grenache will have very little oak ageing and this is what will pair nicely due to soft fruit element also in the wine. If you like your oak than Rioja Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva is for you but maybe to full to drink in the afternoon. My advice is to keep these for the evening when the temperature can drop. Here is something for you to try:

Southway Shiraz Victoria Australia £7.99 Bargain price shiraz with soft blackcurrant fruit with a jammy finish. Rounded and smooth but a hefty 14.5% alcohol.

The classic BBQ cuisine is what I have mentioned above, burgers and bangers, bit of chicken maybe a few prawns? Quite a mix when you think about, so what is going to pair perfectly with that mix? Warm weather tends to require lighter reds, something that you may also want to chill. But those meats can be quite filling and spicy depending what type of sausages you go for so this may require a red with a little more body. The grape variety Shiraz has that spicy fruit character so would go nicely. But that also depends on which country you choose. Shiraz from warmer countries tend to have much more jammy, black currant fruit but can also be high in alcohol. If you grab one from France for example, they can be drier, and more spice driven. Both gorgeous but different in style. A grape that I think is underrated and usually used for blending is Grenache. On its own it has a wonderful red fruit aroma along with the spicy fruit that Shiraz has. Its rounder than shiraz but not as sweet or jammy. Whatever you cook you are going to get a bit of chargrill on your food which can add a nice smoky character to your dishes. With this in mind, something with


s we head into the warm summer months, a substantial salad full of seasonal leaves, roasted veg, a bit of protein and topped with crunchy nuts or croutons is the perfect meal, full of flavour, colour and different textures, but without filling you to bursting on a hot day. You can make up your salad depending on what you have to hand or what you feel like, with some basic rules to help you along the way.

Baron de Badassiere Syrah Cotes de Thau £9.99 Fuller and drier with more spice but also smooth tannins with red berry fruit and vanilla characters. A lighter 13% alcohol. Terres du Roy Cotes du Rhone £10.99 Medium body with richer fruit characters and a smooth finish. Willunga 100 Grenache McClaren Vale Australia £13.99 Raspberry fruit with spicy hints and a full rounded finish.

Build your salad with a mix of leaves: cos or little gem lettuce, peppery leaves such as local watercress or rocket and spinach or kale. Then choose one or two elements from these categories: Fruit & Veg, Proteins and Starches. With the proteins, think tuna, tofu or salmon, roast beef, crispy bacon or serrano ham, feta or goat's cheese. You only need one of these, and select the other ingredients around this protein base.You can add this sparingly, or top the salad with a chicken breast or grilled steak. For the fruit and veg category, you can choose between roasted veg (asparagus,

butternut squash, mini roast potatoes, courgettes, peas and beans) cooked and cut into bite sized pieces where necessary, or fruit such as tomatoes, diced apple, raspberries, orange or peach slices. The starch acts as filler to make the salad more satisfying. Think of beans, chickpeas or lentils, or grains such as quinoa, bulgar or barley. Finally a topping of croutons or roasted nuts gives a lovely crunch to finish it off. Remember with any dressing 1 part vinegar (balsamic, apple cider, lemon juice etc) to 3 parts oil. Salt & pepper to taste.

At the Stansted Farm Shop we are currently serving Roast Beef Salad: • Charcoal Roast Hampshire Topside of Beef • Mixed leaves (lollo rosso, frisee, rocket, cucumber & tomato) • Roasted butternut squash and courgettes • Pearl Couscous & Quinoa • Candied Walnuts. • Honey & mustard dressing.

Spirit-of-the-South at the 3rd Havant Music Festival Held on the 4th of April, at North Hayling Recreation Hall. Singing for our supper, some of the ladies of Spirit-of-the-South , a local ladies harmony chorus, shared the evening with the Sunbeams, a lovely father and daughter Duo. Two different sounds, and both equally enjoyable. We started with a fun warm-up song,

"Gee It's Good To See Ya" then gave a short explanation of how four part harmony works before moving on to the first set of two. We included some of our favourite show songs, such as Can You Feel The Love, from the Lion King, and Hallelujah, from Les Miss. These always go down well. The Sunbeams were a delight, singing a good mix of songs from the 60's-70's and 80's. Soon everyone was toe-tapping and singing along, as they drew the evening to a close.The evening raised £90 + for The Dementia Awareness Group.This will be shared between Hayling and Havant Communities.We are looking forward to the 4th Havant Music Festival next year.

Singing is Sensational Spirit-of-the-South invite you to re-kindle your passion for singing.You may have had a break, and now you need to return. If you are new to singing, now is your chance to experience all the fun, and the benefits. We are a local, ladies four part harmony chorus, and have been together for over ten years. Now we would like to increase our membership. Our twenty-five ladies enjoy coaching days / week-ends, a wide variety of sing-outs, and we take part in local

competitions. We are affiliated to LABBS, Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers, and have enjoyed Conventions at Llandudno, and Bournemouth. We rehearse every Tuesday evening, at Havant Methodist Church, Havant, Hants, PO92HU, from 7-30 until 10pm. On the FIRST TUESDAY of the month we have an OPEN EVENING from 7-30 until 9pm.

St Faiths Bell Tower renovations completed As the oldest civic and public building in the Town of Havant, St Faith’s has stood at the ancient Roman crossroads for at least 800 years. Based on available records, for at least 400 of those years the bells of the church building have rung out over the town, calling the people to worship, commemorating the departed, celebrating weddings and grand civic events. The sound of the bells is released and directed by a series of louvres, or baffles – which can be directed down to the ground, or out over a greater distance when required. Old Father Time, and the endless attention of pigeons had unfortunately led to those louvres falling into disrepair. Their surfaces were scoured by pigeon-feet, and the weather, and the tilting mechanisms had eroded beyond use. Until, that is, Postcode Publications came to the rescue. Their grant of £1,600 enabled local craftsman, Keith Baxter and his grandson to be employed to renovate and repair the first of the three sets of louvres. Further grants, totalling £4,000 from Hampshire County Councillors Ray Bolton and David Keast then enabled the other two sets of louvres to be completed – with the cost of scaffolding and additional painting being picked up by the

congregation of St Faith’s. The Rector of St Faith’s, Canon Tom Kennar, told us “I am SO grateful to Postcode Publications, and their readers and advertisers, for having made the completion of our Tower project a reality. The louvres project comes on top of their previous support for both the restored and re-guilded weather-vane, and the church’s clock faces. St Faith’s is everybody’s building. We churchgoers are only the temporary custodians of a beautiful and ancient building which rightly belongs to the whole community. It’s just brilliant when the whole community can come together like this to look after our building together.”

David Williamson Charity Wheelchair push - 30 marathons in 30 days.

In June and July of this year, three times Havant Borough Sports Association Disabled Sportsperson of the Year David Williamson will be taking on his biggest challenge yet... an epic 30 marathons in 30 days! David will

be taking on this most incredible of physical and mental tests to fundraise for three causes very close to his heart. Three year old Felicity, four year old Emerson and LimbPower (you can read more about the causes below). All funds raised from the 30in30 will be split equally between these three fantastic causes. To support David please visit his Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/dw30in30 David had both legs amputated through the knee when he was a few months old, having been born without tibia bones. As well as pushing marathons and being a 5-time participant in the Great South Run he has completed a 24 hour wheelchair push and played over 300 games for South Hants Sitting Volleyball Club. He was the recipient of the 2016 #wecandoit Personal Achievement award.

Three year old Felicity has undiagnosed genetic conditions which the doctors think causes all of the different problems she has. She has three brain conditions, she is visually impaired, she has got reflux, epilepsy and it's quite difficult to control. She has twitches every day that cannot be controlled by medication and needs 24 hour care. David raised over £4,000 for Felicity by completing the 2016 Brighton Marathon, after fighting their longstanding rule that wheelchair athletes must be pushed around the course. Four year old Emerson developed a cyst on his spine when he was 2, which paralysed from the waist down. He lost all movement in his lower body and is unable to walk. The family work tirelessly to ensure that he keeps smiling through all the surgeries, rehab, travel and consultation that has

followed. David was contacted by the family after they had read of his achievements online to thank him for giving them hope for Emerson's future. David responded by giving Emerson one of his awards and continues to stay in close contact with them. Limb Power was launched in November 2009 to engage amputees and individuals with limb impairments in physical activity, sport and the arts to improve quality of life and to aid lifelong rehabilitation. In July 2014 LimbPower became a National Disability Sports Organisation. Through this association and work with the English Federation of Disability Sport and Sport England LimbPower help amputees and people with limb impairment reach their sporting potential.

HAMBLEDON FOLK CLUB WEDNESDAY 10 JULY – COHEN BRAITHWAITE-KILCOYNE Cohen is an extraordinarily talented singer and musician who has been playing music since the age of 6.

What’s on

Midsummer Madness Concert in aid of Charity Bedhampton choir, Folks in Harmony, are once again staging a summer show much to the delight of their regular audience! Titled ‘Midsummer Madness,’ the show is on Saturday 29th June at 7.30pm in The Church of the Resurrection in Penrhyn Avenue, Drayton, Portsmouth, PO6 2AP. Now in their seventh year, the mixed choir has swelled to over 40 singers, which gives a depth to the sound, especially as there is a large and enthusiastic bass section! The ‘a cappella’ choir’s harmonies have always been sweet and balanced, but they now have a resonance and a confidence gained from experience. This is no surprise as many of the singers have been with the choir for a number of years and have clearly benefited from the potted singing lessons at the beginning of each rehearsal. The concert features many new songs from the worlds of classic pop, musicals and folk, and resident arranger and co Music Director, Peter Mumford, takes delight in moving the melody around the different voice sections in his arrangements. However, as ever, Folks in Harmony is more than a choir! Many of the choir members are showcasing their individual talents to create a great variety performance. The programme includes classical music, poetry, a couple of humorous items, solos, as well as superb harmonic singing from the

small mixed group, Octangle, and the small ladies group, B Natural. The profits from the concert will be donated to 2 charities close to the hearts of a couple of the choir members, Myaware, which supports people with myasthenia, and the RNIB. Bass David Lockyer chose Myaware because his granddaughter was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis when she was only 14. It is an auto immune disease that causes muscle weakness and the effort needed to overcome this causes extreme tiredness. It also affects speaking, smiling and swallowing. The money will be spent on research to find

a cure for this pernicious disease. Tenor Lin Longhurst, who selected the RNIB, is a great fan and said, “The charity did a lot for my aunt when she had failing eyesight. I also receive treatment for glaucoma, and can see first-hand how many people are affected by eye conditions. I think it is a very worthy cause.” During the interval the audience will be treated to summer spritzers and ice creams which are included in the ticket price of £8. Tickets can be purchased by ringing 02392 366508. More information can be found on the website www.folksinharmony.co.uk

Coca-Cola are supporting Bygone Festival following on from a gesture in 1943. When America entered World War II thousands of US citizens were sent overseas. To show support for the brave men and women, Coca-Cola President Robert Woodruff ordered that “every man in uniform gets a bottle of Coca-Cola for five cents, wherever he is and whatever it costs the company.” Inn On The Beach are giving every uniformed man and woman one free bottle of Coca-Cola during Bygone Festival as a token of thanks to the Armed Forces community.

Woodmancote Church restored

By Mike Skiffins

On 30th March 2019, The Revd. Andrew Doye, Rector of Westbourne with Woodmancote, gave thanksgiving for the restoration of Woodmancote Church and dedicated its new cross.

In 2012, a service was held to celebrate the church's 120th anniversary, (not bad for a 'temporary building') but it was beginning to show signs of its age

Editor’s note: We reported in our last edition that the cross was created by the HAMESH Men’s Shed in Havant, to replace the rotten original. HAMESH used good parts of the origional to make candlesticks sold at the church raising over £400 towards the restoration costs. A Tin Tabernacle The church at Woodmancote is unusual, looking a bit like a scout hut, perched on rising ground near the Woodmancote Arms. In fact this is a rare building, over 120 years old, and its survival is a testament to its constructors and to the care given over the years. The Church of England expanded rapidly in Victorian times, partly out of a new religious fervour but also to serve a rising population. In many cases an urgent need would be filled by a typically Victorian invention – the corrugated iron building. Corrugated iron was developed in Britain in the mid 19th Century and refined by galvanising the sheets for durability, which led to more practical applications including

many types of prefabricated buildings from 1850 onwards. Many of these were intended to be temporary structures, and so the churches built using this material became nicknamed 'tin tabernacles' after the reference in Exodus to the portable dwelling of Yahweh used by the wandering tribes of Israel. Many such buildings were also exported to developing countries in support of missionary work, and were used by different denominations. In October 1892 an 'iron room' was erected for divine service in Woodmancote by the Reverend J H Mee and was called ‘The Mission Room’. It is said that it arrived from Southbourne Station on a horse-drawn

vehicle in a flat pack (did IKEA get their ideas from the Victorians?). It remained in the ownership of Reverend Mee up until 7th January 1919 when it was conveyed to the Trustees of Westbourne Church. Since then, Woodmancote Church has been an ecclesiastical charity under the sole management and control of the Rector of Westbourne, The chapel was licensed in 1928. Woodmancote is one of only two active Anglican ‘tin tabernacles’ still being used for divine service, the oldest in Sussex and the fourth oldest in the UK. A similar building is housed in the Weald and Downland museum at Singleton.

The Restoration In 2018 it was decided that the church needed refurbishment,The interior has been cleaned, repainted and varnished, while the ceiling has been repaired. In addition the old windows were replaced by modern Windows in a similar style of wooden frames. Externally, the corrugated iron has been completely repainted but the wooden cross outside had been exposed to the elements for many years and would require very specialist work to restore. The Cross The church asked local Mens Sheds if they could undertake this project and HAMESH, the Havant Town Centre mens shed, agreed that they could. George Palmer is a skilled carver and woodworker who sourced some seasoned oak for the cross, and over several months carefully carved the text, and constructed and erected the new cross at Woodmancote which is now readily visible behind the recently reduced hedging. Revd. Doye made reference in his address to the hymn 'The old Rugged Cross' with the hope that the new cross would stand for many years until it, too, became Rugged.


HAMESH Candles

When the Havant Town Centre Mens Shed (HAMESH) were asked to make a new cross for Woodmancote Church, the old one was removed. Despite severe damage resulting from over 120 years of exposure to the weather there was a lot of sound wood remaining. Of course the members of the church had an affection for the old cross so HAMESH decided to see what could be done to salvage the timber and recycle the old Oak whilst retaining some of the spirit of the original. George Palmer took the old cross beam with its original carving and separated the text into separate words after cleaning up the ancient decay, and transformed each 'word' into a candle holder for three or four table candles. Meanwhile he sawed the upright post into suitable lengths and invited fellow Shed members to each make a pair of turned wooden candlesticks.

The turning process, of course, removes a lot of the outside wood so they agreed to leave the bottom inch untouched as a square base of weathered wood topped by a sturdy, shaped and polished candlestick. The end results were presented to Revd. Doye at the HAMESH shed premises and displayed at the official open day at the church. The church chose to retain the table candles, and present one or two of the others to members who had been active in the restoration of the church. The rest of these candles were put up to a blind auction to the parishioners. Some of the existing parishioners had been christened or married in that church so there was a strong sentimental interest in owning these historic candlesticks and the auction raised a sum of £460.00 for the church. A note of thanks was sent by the church to George and HAMESH for creating the beautiful candlesticks.

War & Water 1945

From Ian Limb, Portsmouth Water

The role Portsmouth Water played leading up to and during WW2 As our nation has reached key anniversary milestones over the last few years, the interest in the history of the Second World War and the sacrifices and achievements made by so many of our people at that time has never been stronger. The role Portsmouth Water played during the war especially considering the pivotal role the city of Portsmouth played has been of interest to me for many years. During some research, I came across, whilst looking through our own archives, a somewhat unusual publication entitled “War and Water” produced in 1945. I thought that there would be some interest in this information so decided to produce the publication again.The text has deliberately not been changed from the original wording but we have added photographs from both our own archives and our friends at the Portsmouth News in order to support the text. The publication details events involving Portsmouth Water in the years leading up to and during the Second World War including the preparations for “D-Day”. For example, the excerpt below details the collaboration required between Army Personnel and the Company to ensure water supply would be plentiful for the massing troops preparing to invade France. As the risk of invasion “inwards” receded, so the preparations for invasion “outwards” gradually developed. It was fully expected that “D-Day” for the invasion of France, when it came, would provoke a violent enemy reaction. Most of the precautions taken to meet the air-

raid contingencies were therefore kept in being and the Company’s employees took part in local exercises organised by the Garrison Commander, primarily to ensure uninterrupted troop movements. A large number of military transit camps were set up in the woods and copses in the outlying districts for which temporary water supplies were installed; numerous roadside water points were also provided The publication describes how preparations were being made nearly 5 years before the outbreak of war to ensure that the strategically important city of Portsmouth was able to deal with the aftermath air raid attacks and prepare for possible enemy invasion. Whilst most publications deal with the actions and sacrifices of those in active military service, this publication reminds us of the great efforts made by those who stayed at home; from a Portsmouth Water perspective it illustrates how our employees put their lives in danger by ensuring water was supplied throughout the conflict often whilst bombs were still falling.Two members of staff paid the ultimate sacrifice whilst doing just that. It is hoped that people will find this chronicle of Second World War events through the eyes of Portsmouth Water of interest. The full publication is available for download from our website at Water supply to bomb damaged homes www.portsmouthwater.co.uk.

YES - Young Explorers Squad



In July 2018 Postcode Publications provided funding to Park Community School to be able to offer additional extra opportunities and experiences to students outside of the school day. This has proved extremely popular with students and at weekends Mr Roberson and staff volunteers go out and about. Very early on we realised that several of the trips would be repeated to give more students the chance to go. Students ask to go and staff also recommend those they think might get the most benefit. Trips give students the chance to mix across years and with those they might not normally talk to.

just a school

We strongly believe in our motto that we are ‘much more than just a school’ and it becomes harder to achieve this with increasing costs, reducing school budgets and the emphasis on GCSE exam results. As a result of the funding received from Postcode Publications we can provide a wide range of experiences. Students are learning many ‘soft skills’ that often we take for granted.

Thank you Christopher Anders, Headteacher

Student A: “I had never been on a train and so I learnt how you get the tickets, how it goes through the machine and out just to go to where the train would come in. Mr Roberson showed us where it told you which train was coming so we didn’t get on the wrong one”.

YES Trips

Young Explorers Squad Trips

Park Community School and Postcode Publications

Working in partnership providing extracurricular opportunities to expand or increase: • Student’s cultural capital • Student’s wellbeing • Team building • Autonomy and resilience

YES – Young Enterprise Squad

The decision on where to go was based on requests by students and teaching staff. They have travelled by train and minibus to many places, including:

• London – Tour Bus and viewed all of the sights – walked along the South Bank and then onto Trafalgar Square • Bournemouth – Visited Rock Reef Activity Centre and went on the zip wire over the sea and took part in a clip and climb session. Spent time walking along the beach. • Portsmouth Dockyard – did the complete tour and spent time in the Action Stations and then walked to Gunwharf and all had a meal together. • Top Spot Snooker Hall – spent a very competitive morning together thinking about teamwork and lifestyle attitudes.

• Peter Ashley Activity Centre – took part in team building activities, laser quest, climbing, archery, problem solving and assault courses. • London – Houses of Parliament, learning about the three different areas of parliament, enjoying a walk along the Thames and a visit to the London Eye

‘The more you see the more you can aspire to be’. To date we have had over 50 students join us on our YES trips which are on Saturdays. Our motto is ‘we are defined by what we see’ so we take children out of their comfort zones and show them as many things as we possibly can.

• Brighton – went up the BA i360 and visited the Brighton Pavilion

YES trips are vital in that they encourage students to think out of the box, look to their future and know that there is more to England. At Park, we don’t just talk about it. We do it. This is one of the many reasons why we’re ‘much more than just a school’. Mr Roberson

We estimate we have funding in place to continue for another 30 trips. For all trips the students are asked to pay a contribution towards cost, with a minimum suggested donation between £3 and £10 depending where they are going. This encourages an appreciation of cost. We also ask students on some of the trips to bring money to go to a restaurant to have lunch. This is so they sit together, converse and be brave enough to try items on the menu they may not have experienced before.

students benefited

We are fortunate to have our Apex Construction Centre in which an area has now been created for our young people to be able to work and meet. Together we have experimented and produced some sample ideas for us all to see what is involved. It has been a journey of discovery.

Student Comments: ‘On the YES trip I had fun when they upgraded us to first class on the train! We took a trip around the Houses of Parliament and had a 90 minute audio tour which was very interesting’. Megan

Supported by several staff members with a range of skills the squad can learn all of what they need to make YES a great success. The squad have already experimented and produced several prototype products, including a river table, picture frames and mirrors.

‘I found the trip very exciting. It made me feel independent as I was far away from home. The trips are a good opportunity to see new things and for my future and Mr Roberson is really funny’. Lewis

From Summer 2019 we anticipate having a regular group of children working both within the school day and after school and building a small enterprise. They will be learning about: • Researching what the products should be? • Who will be our customers? • Product saleability? • Can we make it? What skills do we need to learn? • Production costs and retail pricing? As a result of the funding we have received we have been able to provide a wide range of experiences for our students, ones that they would not ordinarily have been able to have, so increasing their ‘cultural capital’.

New Epic Community Initiative Comes to Havant It all started when three local mums wanted to help promote local businesses! Epic Events is a relatively new company, only launching earlier this year but they have just held their third successful event which was at the Meridian Shopping Centre in Havant. The three mums, Chloë, Hayley and Coleen pictured below, had each attended many fairs of their own to promote their FM World fragrance and beauty

business when the idea was born, to start an events company of their own. The ladies already had a plethora of useful business contacts and some experience in the events field between them, so it was the start of a great new venture. “We wanted to create events where we could promote what we do with FM World but also allow other local businesses to promote what they make, sell or do.” Hayley Stephen. The Epic Events Team aim to keep the stall costs very competitive and work closely with businesses in the local community to promote their events. “When someone buys something from a local business, the owner does a happy dance!” Coleen Jackson There are a variety of stalls at each of the events the Epic Events Team organise and they ensure there are not too many of the same thing, to allow the maximum exposure to the businesses who are involved. “We have so many exciting things in the pipeline for the future, we are constantly buzzing with ideas and we are hoping to donate some money to charity from our future events. We want to keep our events very much in the community domain and ensure they are lots of fun for young and old.”

Chloe Atkinson: “The Epic Events team have just announced their showcase Christmas event ‘Epic Events Does Christmas’ which will be held at the Mountbatten Centre in Portsmouth, on Sunday 15th December. They have also secured Saturday 3rd August and Saturday 7th September for more Small Business Fairs at the Meridian Shopping Centre, and they are in talks about booking more dates. Please come along and support your local businesses!” If you would be interested in having a stall at a future event, please get in touch with the Epic Events Team by emailing: epicevents66@gmail.com.

If we could talk to the animals…

Most of us want to be the happiest and healthiest we can. Who on earth would wish that they were sicker and more miserable? The question is this: If we have more knowledge and technological advances in health care than we had a generation ago, why is chronic illness on the increase? Why does every species on earth (unless we have ruined their habitat) express better health and have less chronic illness than the human

species? What are humans doing differently today compared to a few decades ago that is resulting in declining health in infants, children, the middle aged and the elderly? Health really is simple. Other species remain healthy because they follow the biological laws that govern health. They live in ways that match the habitat and lifestyle requirements written in the DNA for their species. They consume the nutrients which are right for their species. For example, horses eat grass and lions eat meat. If you

swapped their diets over or fed them a lot of processed food containing substances that their bodies have not evolved to digest, they would not thrive. Animals move or exercise in the way that is right for them. Some are constantly moving, such as birds and fish, whereas sloths move a lot less. Some social animals require the presence of others and live in family groups whereas others are solitary most of the time. So what do humans require to stay healthy and what are the biological laws that we should abide by? Firstly, what we eat or drink will govern the way our body

PAGE: 28

functions. Whatever we put into our system is either good for us or bad for us. Our bodies have evolved over millions of years to eat fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, berries, meat, eggs and fish. We are not equipped to digest the toxins which are found in pesticides, herbicides, preservatives, colourings, hormones, antibiotics. Our bodies cannot cope with the excess fat, sugars, chemicals and additives found in processed food and ready meals. Tea, coffee, alcohol and fizzy drinks contain chemicals such as caffeine, which are toxic to the brain and nerves. What would happen to your pets if you fed them the same food that many of us consume? Yet many people think it’s fine to give children cola and sweets that they would never give to their dog. Humans used to be nomadic and would usually walk up to ten miles every day looking for food. For example, if we sit in an office and drive everywhere, we are not moving anywhere near as much as our bodies require. It’s madness to think that

some people will take the dog for a walk every day, but leave their children at home playing video games. The correct type of exercise is essential for normal growth and good health. Finally, what goes on in your head can either make you sick or well. How you think governs how you behave, and how you behave governs the biochemical reactions in your body. Too many stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol in your tissues lead to chronic illness of all types. If you are feeling under pressure, finding ways to destress is essential for good health. Loneliness and depression can be averted by making the effort to mix with others, since humans are social animals who need each other. In short, in order to be healthy we need to eat well, move well and think well. It’s up to you and it’s never too late to make changes! If you would like to talk about ways you can improve your health, please contact Sheila Stakim at Emsworth Chiropractic Clinic, 27 North Street, Emsworth. 01243 373721.

Volunteers Ensure we Carry on Camping A great example of how volunteering in the community makes a difference was demonstrated by a team of employees from Wärtsilä U.K. Ltd, a company based in Havant.YMCA Fairthorne Manor is a unique outdoor activity centre set in approx 83 acres of beautiful Curdridge countryside. Fairthorne hosts a huge range of indoor and outdoor activities to positively engage children and young adults. Having such a large area to cover, volunteers are particularly welcome at YMCA Fairthorne to help with the smooth running of the site. Therefore, for a day at the beginning of May, a group of fourteen volunteers from Wärtsilä gave up their time to undertake some essential tasks. The team were split into groups and were asked to help set up the large canvas tents that Fairthorne use to accommodate various

groups throughout the summer. Between them, they managed to set up and cover 40 tents, a huge task that Fairthorne undertake at the start of every summer season. Jo Pike said, “The support from Wärtsilä really helps to support our community ethos. Having the enthusiastic team has turned a two-week job into a one-day job thus allowing our staff to concentrate on other pressing tasks around the site. We would like to pass our thanks to Wärtsilä for giving up their time for us at Fairthorne.” Ken a volunteer from Wärtsilä said, “The team have really enjoyed today at Fairthorne Manor. It has been so well organised and a real eye-opener to see how much is involved running the centre and a real privilege to contribute and be part of the great work that they do here at YMCA. It has been a great way for us to get

The team from Wärtsilä U.K. Ltd at YMCA Fairthorne Manor

together for a team-building day and get to interact with our colleagues that we would not necessarily have the chance to speak to.” Without the support of local businesses, many charity and community groups would

struggle. For more information about how you can get involved with the employee volunteering scheme contact Rachel Taylor at rachel.taylor@cfirst.org.uk or telephone 01730 774057

Health & Health and fitness in 2019 The Magical Powers of Food and Spice Well-being when it comes to weight loss… by Denise Kelly The substance that gives cayenne its heat - capsaicin – may just be the magic ingredients that help with weight loss. Foods flavoured with cayenne may help you drop a few pounds by helping to decrease your appetite and reduce their cravings for fatty, sweet and salty foods as well as increasing your feelings of being full. Spicy foods not only decrease your appetite, they may also help increase calorie burning and spice ups your body temperature, which may increase the amount of energy you expend.While results from studies vary, a sprinkling of cayenne may help you burn as much as 119 calories. Simply add a little cayenne pepper on your morning eggs or avocado and serve it with slices of cucumber and celery. Celery for Weight Loss Celery has a reputation as a diet food for a reason — it's incredibly low in calories, so you can enjoy it without putting much of a dent in your daily calorie intake. A cup of chopped raw celery has just 16 calories,

Life is for thriving…not just surviving

which is just 1 percent of the daily limit in a 1,500-calorie diet, and each large celery stalk has just 10 calories. Cooked celery has slightly more calories, at 27 calories per cup, but is still a good option. Cutting calories is essential for weight loss, and replacing higher-cal foods with celery helps you lower your calorie intake to lose weight. It’s very simple, in order to shed the pounds, you must have less going in and increase your exercise regime daily. Celery can also offer you essential nutrients that support your weight-loss journey and because it’s extremely high in fibre, it tends to require more chewing, so it forces you to slow down and savour your meal instead of chowing down quickly and accidentally eating too much.
