Harbour raw sewage shock RAW SEWAGE is being discharged into a Pagham beauty spot every five weeks on average. THe human effluent flows into Pagham Harbour nature reserve from the area's wastewater treatment works. When the works in Summer Lane are unable to cope, their operator, Southern Water, releases the untreated or mashed sewage into the nearby Pagham Rife from where it flows into the harbour.

THe harbour is home to birds such as black-tailed godwit, little egret and pintail and its nature reserve is run by the RSPB on behalf of West Sussex County Council. News of the potentially damaging leaks of sewage was given by Pagham Parish Council member Cllr Phil Hailey at a meeting on Tuesday. He said: “Since 2011, Southern Water have had to inform the Environment

Agency 55 times of a discharge into Pagham Rife of untreated or partially treated sewage. “Southern Water have said they have no issues with the proposed houses here because they would not cause the treatment works any problems but, clearly, there are big problems already.” He said the matter was one the parish council should highlight in its objections to the three large housing schemes which

have been put forward for Pagham in the past two months. Cllr Ray Radmall, the parish council's chairman, said: “I have been there when it happens. It's terrible. When the sewage goes down the rife into the nature reserve, it also affects our bathing water quality along the front “THe sewage goes out and the tides see it end up back on the beach.” Turn to page five

Horse riders warned over 'death trap' by Kevin Smith kevin.smith@sussexpost.co.uk 01243 908506 ext 11 HORSE riders face a death trap if thousands more cars are added to Pagham's roads, councillors have warned. THey fear the equine lovers will be risking their lives on routes like Lower Bognor Road if planned major housing developments get the go-ahead. Cllr Ray Radmall, Pagham Parish Council's chairman, said: "We do not want to see horses on that road. With the extra traffic we are going to get, it will be a death trap. It's very sad." He was replying to a request from Jill Stevens, the British Horse Society's access and bridleways officer for the southern Chichester district, for an extra sign to warn drivers of the presence of horses and their riders. "If the road is dangerous for horses now, it's going to be a damn sight worse if the housing is approved. "THere's no way of improving the road. THere are massive ditches within two feet of the edge of the road," said Cllr Radmall. Ms Stevens, pictured above right with Ashlee Newman of Park Farm Stables,

told the parish council: "You might not be aware but this area is particularly well served by horse riders, despite being a rural area and a fair amount of horses being kept dotted around the parish. "In this day and age of busy roads and heavy traffic, it is often a worry for many horse riders." One matter which had been brought to her attention by the public were the conditions in Lower Bognor Road for horse riders, she said. "THere are around 50 horses, ponies and donkeys kept along various points down that road," she said. "With no bridleways to ride on in that area, riders are forced to ride on the road to get to off road routes. "THere is one sign warning road users about horse riders. THis sign is positioned westbound before the sharp bend on which the Park House turnoff is located. However, there is no sign to alert road users from the other direction. "THis is a subject of worry to many of the riders I have spoken to. THey already feel vulnerable riding on that road and many drivers do pass them too quickly on their horses." She added that a second sign was paramount to the safety of horse riders in that area.

Police alert over report of a man acting suspiciously POLICE were called to a report of a man acting suspiciously around a child in a Rose Green play area at the weekend. THe officers went along to the play park in THe Nurseries, between Rose Green Road and Grosvenor Gardens, at about 5.30pm on Sunday. It is alleged the suspect asked a young boy if he wanted to get in his car. THe boy walked away and returned home safely. THe man has been described as being aged in his 20s or 30s with long ginger hair which was shaved

at the sides. He had multiple facial piercings and was wearing a red tracksuit with a blue top. Sussex Police neighbourhood schools officer Claudine Bishop said: "We take all such reports very seriously and would ask anyone to contact us immediately if they witness any suspicious behaviour. "THe best way to do that is to report information online or by calling 101. In an emergency, call 999."

Regeneration group wants to start transforming town by Kevin Smith kevin.smith@sussexpost.co.uk 01243 908506 ext 11 A GROUP of residents is eager to get going with their regeneration ideas for Bognor Regis. 4BR is counting the days until its invitation arrives from Arun District Council to tender for the transformation of the Regis Centre and Hothamton car park sites. One of the founders, Steve Goodheart, said the group was keen to get going with its proposals. "4BR's belief is that we should be investing and building for future generations and, as the current generation, we should be proud of that," he said. "Following the submission of our original ideas, which have been very well received, 4BR are committed to bringing forward a truly regenerative opportunity for Bognor Regis town centre and our approach has been proven in our initial proposals."

Arun's Bognor Regis sub-committee is set to debate the latest ideas for the two key sites at its meeting on February 27. 4BR launched its initial plans two years ago. THe masterplan states: "THe seafront is without doubt the key asset and it is important the threshold between land and sea is turned into an everlasting opportunity and not just a place to stroll. "By creating a cultural destination on the seafront which is linked with attractive seaside leisure activities, we believe Bognor Regis can create a new focus for future prosperity and wellbeing, attracting both cultural and leisure tourism, extending its attraction throughout the year." THis would be achieved by creating a multi-use centre, illustrated below, at the Regis Centre with the Alexandra THeatre, a William Blake museum and community studio, restaurants, shops and residential. Rock pools and a safe sandy beach with sea defences would be created, along with a watersports centre and slipway. A 'stop over' boat marina, a divers' underwater reef and a fisherman's jetty

with a fish market and a fish restaurant were also featured. Fellow 4BR founder Sean Maginnis said: "What makes 4BR different is that it is led by locals who have a long-established commitment to the town and an awardwinning architect who is passionate about bringing forward the very best regenerative scheme to re-establish Bognor Regis as the pre-eminent seaside town it once was. "4BR believe in building on the town's assets, combining its natural seaside environment with its cultural and historic assets to build a year-round attraction". He and Steve said they had fully consulted about their ideas to ensure others supported their thinking and had spoken to Arun about the processes to be followed. THey also said a key developer had offered full financial backing to build on its record of delivering major regenerative schemes. THe backer's professional team had guided 4BR on technical and market influences to ensure the best possible project was brought forward.

Couple's double delight for school GENEROUS supporters have seen a Bognor Regis couple plan to double their fundraising target to help children with special needs. Douglas and Carol Fleming, pictured above, have been delighted by the support they have received for their mission to a specialist school in Romania. THey are travelling to the eastern European country from February 27 for a fortnight with some £1,600 in donations. Douglas said: "Our fundraising has been absolutely fantastic. THe response has been overwhelming. We are really pleased. A table top sale at Aldwick Baptist Church last Saturday morning generated £470 of the profit. THis was followed by a successful and fun quiz evening by Kerry Applin at the church in Gossamer Lane, which brought in another £1,000. THe total to date has been topped up by a £500 donation. THe kind-hearted couple will be heading to Zalau with Eagle Ministeries' Rod Greenwood to use £1,000 of their fundraising to improve the life of the pupils at the school. "It's a lovely school," said Douglas,

"but it doesn't have any equipment. THe teachers have to buy what they want out of their own pockets. "I think it dates from the orphanages when Romania was a communist country. THey have improved since those days but are still behind us in in western Europe. "It is better to take the money with us and then we can negotiate for as good a deal as possible when we are out there, rather than buying things in this country." Conditions in Romania are well below freezing at the moment. THe rest of the money will be given to Pastor Nelu, with whom they will be staying, for a new car for his work in charge of the Baptist church near Zalau and to help him to cope with the poorly-maintained roads. Douglas and Carol are Deacons at Aldwick Baptist Church and have lived in Bognor Regis for 35 years. THey have both worked in the care sector among other jobs and have always worked with children as well as being foster carers for ten years. One of their grandsons is severely autistic. THey help at the church's Cafe Connect, which operates on three mornings a week.

` Football fans back cricket club GENEROUS football supporters have helped arson-hit Aldwick Cricket Club raise funds. Spectators at THe Rocks' home match against Dulwich Hamlet donated more than £700 towards the cricket club's appeal. It is well over halfway through an attempt to raise £10,000 to help overcome the setback caused by arsonists who torched its pavilion in Brooks Lane. Dave Robinson, the cricket club's president, said he was overwhelmed by the kindness of the 447 fans at last Saturday's game. "THis is truly amazing and the generosity that everyone demonstrated restores my faith in life. In sport, it is so nice to see people come together in times of adversity," he said. Online donations to the cricket club had reached £6,492 at the start of this week from 123 supporters. THe cricket club's appeal on www.crowdfunder.co.uk runs until February 27 - a month after its pavilion was destroyed.

` Waste charge bid LABOUR members of West Sussex County Council are using today's full council meeting to try to get charges for household DIY waste lifted. THey said they believed the fees, imposed last October at sites such as Bognor Regis, could be illegal and have proposed extra funding to enable the charges to be removed.

Junctions 'need to be improved' UP TO £2.5m of work is needed to improve road junctions to avoid gridlock if thousands of homes are built around Bognor Regis. THe large-scale schemes have been identified for 15 locations by consultants hired by Arun District Council. THe experts warn delays could lengthen by as much as eight minutes for motorists if the sites stay unchanged and some 11,550 homes are built across the district as well as new businesses to the north of Bognor Regis. THe housing proposals include 3,000 at Barnham/Eastergate/Westergate, 2,500 west of Bersted (Chalcraft Lane) and 1,500 at Ford. THe consultants also warn the extra traffic will make two sites - at Comet Corner in Middleton and Yapton and the Oystercatcher pub in Climping - unsafe without improvements. Ian Wilkinson, who created the Arun Transport Study 2016, says: "THe combination of traffic being drawn to the Felpham Relief Road, alongside large developments at Enterprise Bognor Regis, and strategic locations at BEW and west of Bersted (will) lead to pressure on the A29 between Bognor Regis and Lidsey. "Widespread A27 impacts are seen between Fontwell and the A280. THe strategic nature of the A27 means it will carry traffic from a larger geographic range of sites and the impact, therefore, is more dependent on the general level of development rather than the location of development." THe 15 junctions his modelling has

f Vicky Hennessy in the new club

identified as priority locations because they will be unable to cope with the predicted extra traffic are: A27 junctions - B2145 Whyke roundabout; A259 Bognor Road roundabout; Meadow Way, Tangmere; B2233 Nyton Road; A29 Fontwell western roundabout; A29 Fontwell eastern roundabout; A284 Ford Road, Arundel; THe Causeway, Arundel; A280 Patching northern roundabout. A29 junctions - A259 Rowan Way; A259 Felpham relief road; Wandleys Lane. A259 junctions - Church Lane, Climping; B2187 Littlehampton west Tesco, as well as the B2166/B2145. THe longest delays will be seen at A27/ A259 Bognor Road roundabout of 465 seconds in the morning peak and 440 seconds in the afternoon peak at the A259/Church Lane, Climping, junction. Typical improvements suggested include widening sections of the junctions. Eight of the sites were also seen as potential environmental risks because of congestion. "THese could include risks to air quality, noise, vibration and severance," says Mr Wilkinson. "Two of these locations, Ford Road level crossing and the Ford Road/ Ford Lane junction, are identified as significant risks due to increases of 168 per cent and 95 per cent respectively in the morning peak." For Comet Corner, he says West Sussex County Council is proposing a 'junction improvement' plus a roundabout at the Oystercatcher junction. His report was presented to Arun's members on Wednesday.

Town centre club to re-open next week for young people YOUNG people will find plenty on offer as a Bognor Regis club is revived. THe 39 Club re-opens at 4pm next Tuesday and will open from 4pm to 6pm on Tuesdays every week. Activities on offer include a pool table, table football, board games, a wi-fi network, a TV, radio and entertainments. THe fee is £1 a person each week. More details will be available from a gazebo outside Boots in the London Road precinct from 11am to 3pm on Tuesday. Management committee chairman Vicky Hennessy said: "I've had quite a good reaction so far to the

fact the club is re-opening. I have talked to some young people and they have given me some ideas about what they would like to see in the club. "It's going to take a few months to get it up and running because word about it has to get around." THe club is based in the annex of the premises off Church Path used by the previous 39 Youth Club. THat was set up in the sixties but was closed by West Sussex County Council when financial cuts caused it to reduce its youth service. THe council opened a FindItOut centre in the main part of the building a couple of years ago.

Protests over homes plan From page one Some 40 residents went along to Pagham Parish Council's planning committee on Tuesday to voice their objections to the Hanbury Properties' outline proposal for up to 400 homes south of Summer Lane, a care home with up to 70 beds, a neighbourhood centre and land for a potential two form primary school and land for a Scout hut. Alan Pivett, of the Pagham and Aldwick Greenfields Action Movement, said 290 letters of objection to the plans had so far been received by Arun District Council. THey were in addition to the 466 against the some 250 homes scheme for Sefter Road and 112 for the 300 homes wanted for Hook Lane. Support for the protests was spreading. “North Mundham Parish Council have kicked in,” he said. “It's wonderful they have come in and I think it should be appreciated by everyone here that that little school in the corner is in the full firing line of the pollution from vehicles passing along that road (B2166).” He said West Meads Residents' Association had also backed the cause by distributing PAGAM leaflets. Other members of the public present spoke out about the impact of the housing on the harbour with its series of environmental protections, the lack of economic benefit to the area from the new housing, the impact of the extra traffic and the loss of top grade farmland. THe committee agreed to oppose the

housing south of Summer Lane. Cllr Radmall said: “We want to oppose this in the strongest possible terms. THe message from this committee to our full council is that we are not going to stand for it. We will do everything we can to make the best possible effort to stop this development.” Nicola Jones, the parish council's clerk, said evidence from experts was still being accumulated to form the formal protests from the council. “We are beginning to get some of our consultants' work back in. Because the final version of the traffic survey has not come in yet – and we have only just got the ecology survey back – we have not finalised our comments yet. “We have got plenty of time to get our response as we would want it to be. THe traffic survey is the really key one and we want to have a meeting with the traffic consultant to hear his findings and quiz him about them. “THe issues are so common between the sites – and they have all come up at the same time – we are looking at the cumulative effect.” THe earliest that Arun would consider the plans is April 26, she added. Southern Water had not replied to a request for a comment before the Post's deadline. * A public meeting is being held by PAGAM from 7pm-9pm next THursday at Church Farm Holiday Village about the proposed housing developments.

John's service recalled TRIBUTES have been paid to one of Bersted's longest-serving councillors. A minute's silence in honour of John Potter was held at the start of Tuesday's meeting of the parish council where he was praised for his contribution to its activities. Mr Potter died recently, just a few weeks before his 90th birthday. He had been a parish councillor for 26 years and was the chairman of its planning committee for many years. He has also represented the area on Arun District Council for four years. A parish council spokesman said: "John was a gentle giant of a man who spent much of his life helping the local community through his roles both as a district and a parish councillor, duties for which he never sought recompense. "A highly principled man of his word and a loyal friend, John was well known for his inability to tolerate fools which often brought him into conflict with Arun District Council. "He was also very patriotic and he cherished the post-war RAF service that further developed his mechanical genius and business skills. "He is fondly remembered by many in the East Dean and Singleton villages where he and his father ran a succesful logging and haulage business for many years. "His death leaves a large void in our parish council that we will struggle to fill. "John, you led a remarkable life and we salute your many achievements." Mr Potter was a familiar figure at the council's monthly meetings and would always sit to the left of the vice-chairman. His comments about planning matters and criticisms of Arun's decisions frequently livened up the sessions. Councillors at Tuesday's meeting discussed how to arrange a fitting memorial to mark Mr Potter's lengthy service. THey also agreed arrangements for the installation of a memorial bench on March 19 for late councillor Gez Watson after she passed away just over a year ago.

` Warning about 'unsafe' road sign

Spate of rubbish left on roundabout TOWN FORCE workers from Bognor Regis Town Council were confronted by several dozens items dumped on a roundabout on Wednesday. Erika Adams, the Town Force's manager, said the items were seen when the team visited the Southern Cross Industrial Estate in the morning. "THere has been a rise in anti-social behaviour on the estate, including fly tipping and litter.

"It is believed groups of youths meet there in the evenings and at weekends," she said. She said the police had been informed about the incidents and called for action to tackle them. THe items found on Wednesday included a toilet pan, a garden statue, a traffic cone and an Arun District Council lifebelt. THere was also a breeze block and a Father Christmas.

A WARNING has been issued about a housing protest sign in Pagham. County council highways officers have asked for those who put up the sign at the junction of Hook Lane and Pagham Road to take it down. THey have told Pagham Parish Council they believe the sign, which states 'Your Countryside Needs You', is unsafe. Parish council clerk Nicola Jones told a meeting on Tuesday: "THey are not happy it's safe in the condition that it's in and they would like to see it come down. "THey are worried someone might impale themselves on one of the scaffolding poles if there is an accident. If anyone knows whose scaffolding poles they are, it would be appreciated by the county council if they removed them." THe sign was put on the verge at the junction about a month ago. Another one is in the field at the corner of Hook Lane and Sefter Road. THe land is the subject of plans for up to 300 homes.

` Festival scrapped THIS year's Bersted Parish Festival has been scrapped.THe community event was due to have been held on July 9 on the Jubilee Playing Fields. But a statement by Bersted Parish Council says: "THis year's festival has been cancelled due to financial and other circumstances. THe council hope to run the festival next year in 2018."

Valentine's Special at So lovely X

Poo patrols are welcomed CONCERNED Felpham residents have been urged to take part in a crackdown on dog fouling. Parish councillor Paul English said he hoped anyone angry about the animals' mess would make use of new poo patrols set to start across the Arun district from this Easter. "People need to take note of the particular location where they have a problem and the time when it occurs, say 8am-9am, when the irresponsible person lets their dog poo and throws it into someone's garden," he said. "THat can be dealt with and action taken. Someone can be there to deal with the situation and fine the person responsible. I welcome this approach with great enthusiasm. "THe patrols will also include people throwing down litter and chewing gum it's not just about dogs' mess - as and when necessary." Formal approval for the tough approach to the anti-social behaviour was given by two senior members of Arun District Council earlier this month. Cllr Terry Chapman, the council's cabinet member for environmental services, and Cllr Paul Dendle, who is in charge of its leisure and amenities services, jointly backed participating in the litter and dog fouling enforcement trial. THeir decision delegated Arun's powers to fine those guilty of the offences to East Hampshire District Council, which will supply the two wardens for the year-long project. As reported, the scheme will see the wardens equipped with bodycams and

trained to police standards to enable them to legally tackle offenders. Anyone they find breaking the law will be issued with an instant £80 charge. THis will drop to £50 for payment within ten days but escalate to up to £1,000 for dogs' mess and £2,500 for litter for those who are taken to court. THe poo patrols will be free for Arun to use. Its counterpart in East Hampshire wants to launch them outside its Petersfield area because their success has led to a reduction in income from fines around the town. Arun councillors who backed the scheme were told last month the council received some 50 complaints about litter a month and another 60 a year about dog fouling. Cllr English told February's parish council meeting: "If there is a hotspot about litter, the complainants should get down to the nitty-gritty as to when it occurs. It would be good to know when it's occurring and being able to say who is doing it. "Without that help, there's no money to take that information down. THere's no officer going to sit there all day trying to see who the culprit is." He said more signs warning about the fines and information about the scheme were needed. Arun also lacked money to buy new bins for dogs' mess but, if communities contributed towards them, the council could consider adding the bin to its collection rounds. But he warned against moving existing bins: "If a bin is moved, people will still drop the mess where it used to be, even though the bin is just 50 yards away."

Play plan halted A PLAY SHIP project on a Felpham open space has been abandoned. THe Snook's Corner Committee has told the parish council it is unable to go ahead with the ambitious proposal for Longbrook Park. Funding could instead be used to buy new equipment to replace the existing items in the children's play area or to help to pay for barbecue equipment. THe news was reported to this month's parish council meeting. Clerk Richard Wickens said the council had reserved £3,000 to go towards the play ship. "If that project does not go ahead, that money will be removed from an earmarked budget and go into the

general reserve for next year," he said. Longbrook Park, between Butlin's and Sea Road, is owned by Arun District Council. Its officer responsible for the site, Carl Smith, has told the parish council work had been carried out there during the winter. "Over the last few months at Longbrook, we have spent time tidying up the site's borders, we have planted 25 buddleias along Butlin's fence near to the Sea Cadets' building. "We have removed old shrubs near to the sub-station and this, in spring, will be turned into a wildflower meadow. "Trees have been pruned to make them safe."

Andrew is set to make Quins debut

` Suspect takes lamps from store A SUSPECTED thief who has targeted a Bognor Regis store is being sought by police. THe man stole three lamps from the furniture store on February 3. A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Security cameras in the High Street store captured the man removing three lamps worth ÂŁ300 around 1.15pm. "He is believed to be the same man who stole other lamps on December 30 and January 13 and who was apprehended leaving the store on December 9 when he handed a lamp back to staff who challenged him." THe store was not named by police but Reynolds' finance director, Matthew Reynolds told the Post last week one of the company's biggest priorities for the town centre would be a greater security presence to prevent shoplifting. Anyone who recognises the suspect should email: 101@sussex.pnn.police. uk or call 101.

f Dan Carman receives last year's award

Dan can land second award AN ARUN District Council officer is hoping to put its land charges work on the map again. Dan Carman is vying against two other local land charges officers to claim this year's title as the best in his work. He will find out if he has been successful when the winners are revealed at the National Land Charges Awards for Excellence 2017 next month in Bristol. His success so far follows the achievement of the council's land charges service in being highly commended in the best customer experience category in last year's awards. Dan said: "I was quite shocked to be nominated. It is definitely the highest recognition I have received in my career so far. "What is particularly pleasing is the

support my colleagues and peers have shown in putting me forward for this award." Kate Pullen, of Henchleys Solicitors, said: "I have worked over the years with many different local land charges departments in Sussex and I honestly have never come across such a swift and dedicated team as that at Arun. "Many solicitors are astonished when I inform them how fast the local searches are issued." Cllr Ricky Bower is in charge of Arun's planning and infrastructure services. He said: "It is very pleasing news that the council's local land charges team is once again receiving recognition through Dan being shortlisted in this category." Dan is pictured above centre receiving the 2016 award for the council.

ONE OF rugby union's most famous strips has been worn in a match for the first time by a Middleton player. Andrew Fadera, 14, made his debut for the Harlequins in an under-15 friendly tournament away to Surrey on Wednesday afternoon. His first experience of playing in the colours of the world-famous club came five months after he was selected to join its academy. Andrew said: "I enjoyed the tournament and felt I played to the best of my ability. THe weather conditions were rubbish but it's good to play with different boys from all around the area. It's been really good training with Harlequins. I have learned a lot of skills which have improved my game." Andrew's position is Number 8 and, as a forward, he packs into the back of the scrum to try to win the ball and enable his scrum half to pick it up cleanly to begin to launch an attack. Number 8s have to tackle well, be strong, tough and fit and mobile and are usually to be found at the back of lineouts after the ball has gone into touch. Andrew began his sporting life playing football but his growth to 6ft 1in tall and weight of 14 stone led him to try rugby. He was chosen for Felpham Community College's team for his year group which he captains. He plays for Haywards Heath after having turned out for Bognor RFC and Worthing. His rapid development led him to being chosen for the Sussex side. THat winning game led him to the attention of

the Quins' coaches and his seen him turn out for the county in two further games. THe sessions take place monthly at Brighton RFC's ground. "Playing with better people makes you better," said Andrew. "I prefer rugby to football because it is more of a team sport and is more physical." He watched Harlequins beat Gloucester 28-24 at Christmas and studied their No 8s - Jack Clifford and Gareth Evans. "I watched their positioning on the pitch and learned from that to help me play better," he said.

Crown Properties reigns supreme Modern estate agents combines the best of the traditional service and an online presence What are the key priorities of Crown Properties for their clients? Our key priorities to our clients are ensuring a stress free sales process post sale. Also we give an accurate and honest market appraisal which means we can qualify honest and ready potential buyers. As Crown was established by local people, how does this help clients looking for properties in the area? Having been born and raised locally and educated locally we feel a very strong personal connection with the town and can therefore sell with complete confidence and promote with passion. THe market down here on the south coast often varies from further inland and the bigger cities so it helps to have inside knowledge. You are actually an online based company. What are the benefits of this set-up?

THis meant the absolute world to us, as young entrepreneurs trying to break through in a very competitive and sometimes cut throat business it really makes the long hours worth while. What are some of the awards you have won this year? In our first year we won New Business Of THe Year, in our second year we were nominated and shortlisted for the south coasts Small Business Of THe Year award and fingers crossed this year we can continue the trend and scoop up some more. When was Crown Properties established and how have you seen it develop since then? We officially opened for Business in the Summer 2014 and from conception we have seen confidence in what we promise increase with every new client. We knew it would be a hard task growing in such a competitive industry and our initial aim was to be different. We wanted to show what Estate Agency could be with transparency and passion. Not just numbers and stats and I think after our first few years we have achieved this and continue to push the boundaries of our business.

A friendly face and a pressure free process is available from awardwinning Crown Properties

We prefer the term “Modern Estate Agents” as opposed to “Online” simply because “online” suggests a very distant and flat rate based service with added extras at a cost. THIS IS NOT US. We run a traditional Estate agency offering a fully inclusive service with professional photography (another local with a passion for presenting the perfect house) and EPC’s covered in our very low fee of just 0.75%. All that separates us from the High Street agents is a high street office, without this we are able to work 7 days a week and ‘till 8pm to ensure those families that work late can still view their dream home. We work from an office down Durban Road and welcome customers on a daily basis. You won the New Business of the Year award at the Arun Business Partnership awards last year, what did this mean to you? And why do you think you were selected above the competition?

What can clients expect from your service that is different from that provided by other companies? Clients can firstly expect a friendly face. Frustratingly, first impressions do count and we truly believe that our clients deserve a pressure free environment to move and grow in, without the added pressures that some agents apply we allow our clients to freely express how they feel in both purchasing a property and marketing theirs for sale. We also fully appreciate the stresses that moving, selling and/or relocating can present and to that end we endeavour to build our service around you. We can call as little or as much as you would like based

on your schedule and your timescale to sell. Finally, a major sticking point we have found has been contract length. We are that confident that we can sell your property in a shorter period that we will NEVER tie you into a 3 Month or even 6 month contract. After a relaxed discussion we agree a timescale that we feel suits your needs.

Banham football team the Trojans, and we also donate £100 from every sale to StonePillow a local homeless charity reintegrating those fallen on harder times back into society. Our work with the community will continue so keep your eyes peeled for ways you can help and events you can come along too.

And finally, do you have any plans for development or change in 2017?

We hope to take on another apprentice this year also to help in our exspansion into the lettings side of things.

THis year we will continue to grow our business locally and continue to support locally also. We sponsor a local

Challenge us to sell* your property within 8 weeks or we will reduce our fee to £699 *The terms 'sell' means to agree a sale, not complete. Terms and conditions apply. Offer ends 31 January 2017.

Life in the fast lane at the Goodwood circuit by Fiona Callingham news@sussexpost.co.uk 01243 908506 ext 10 POWERFUL cars lined up along Goodwood's historic motor circuit against a clear, blue sky - what more could a petrol head want to start the day? I was thrilled when Goodwood motor circuit offered me the chance to try out its exciting Performance Track and Spin and Slide experiences that combined make for the ultimate day of motoring. Upon arriving at the impressive surroundings of the Goodwood motor circuit, with a group of fellow motoring enthusiasts, I was greeted enthusiastically by their friendly team. I was relieved to discover that we were to be given an in-depth track briefing from chief instructor David Brise before setting out onto the circuit. He explained the intricacies of the circuit, including how to approach each bend to maximise the car's potential. It was also interesting to learn about the history of the track from its beginnings as the perimeter track for a WWII airfield, to its life as a racing track between 1948-1966. Although there are no longer races held at the track, the circuit still plays host to popular motor events. Every September, those 18 years of racing are gloriously recaptured with the popular Goodwood Revival, where most people experience the excitement of the track. THis is nothing, though, compared to the thrills afforded by the track experiences available to try. During the Performance Track experience, each of us were paired with a professional racing driver, either current

or retired, to guide us around the circuit. I was teamed up with young racing driver Jody Fannin whose calm and friendly demeanour soon put me at ease behind the wheel. Jody drove us around the track once, explaining what he was doing. THen I was given three 20-minute sessions driving around the track myself. On each turn I tested out three different cars. THe available cars consisted of eight high performance BMWs, including the phenomenal i8 (worth over ÂŁ100k), all with top speeds of 155mph. THere was also a choice of the playful Mini 3-door hatch with a top speed of 130mph that proved exceptionally nippy and handled superbly around the corners. For my first attempt as a racing driver I sat behind the wheel of a BMW M3. Having driven to Goodwood that day in an old Kia Picanto, I must say that pressing down on the accelerator of the BMW was an electrifying moment. Although I did not come anywhere close to reaching the top speed that the car was capable of, I certainly felt like I wasn't far off. However, with Jody beside me to guide me around the track I felt at ease. For my final lap, I tried out the Mini. Partly due to my building confidence, but mainly because of the excellent handling of the car, I was able to approach corners a lot more swiftly - and didn't get overtaken by the other drivers quite so much! Having the chance to drive around the historic Goodwood motor circuit was truly amazing. It's not often you get the opportunity to drive flat-out in such beautiful cars. However, it was the Spin and Slide experience that for me was the highlight

of the day. To the side of the circuit is Goodwood's own skid pan: a low-grip area constantly greased and watered for the sole purpose of J-turns, powerslides and handbrake turns. As an introduction, I drove around the area slowly, with instruction from the professional driver next to me. He talked me through what to do when the car veers off course - something that kept happening on the skid pan's slippery surface. I found this to be a useful lesson anyway, as learning how to deal with skidding in a car is not really a skill touched upon when learning to drive. THis kind of tutorial is also available with their Extreme Weather Driver experience, which focuses more on understanding how to safely manoeuvre around a wet surface. With the Spin and Slide package though, it's more about the manouvres themselves. I never thought I would ever try a handbrake turn, let alone pull one off. But my instructor guided me through it and it was a great rush to feel the car spin around like that. Even more impressive to me was learning about the J-turn, a move I had only ever seen in Hollywood movies. Putting complete trust in my driver, I followed his instructions and was able to reverse quickly and flick the car around to the face the opposite way. THat was a truly unforgettable moment. And that's the aim of the team at Goodwood. THey want to create special memories people can take away with them. Not only do they offer a host of similar experiences, but their track days allow you to try your own car on their legendary track. Visit www.goodwood.com.

HUNDREDS of runners have put this year's Bognor Prom 10k on course for another success. Some 350 men and women had entered the latest staging of the town's biggest annual sporting event by the end of last week, with 100 days to go. Race committee member Gavin OcleeBrown said: "We are limited to 2,000 runners on the day and I would say we are at the same stage for the numbers who have entered as we were last year. "We opened entries earlier than ever this time - last December - and people were queuing up to put their names down." Entry forms were being distributed this week to the traditional locations of gyms and leisure centres to complement the online version. THis year's race will take place at 10.30am on May 21. It will be the 23rd staging and will start on Silverston Avenue, outside West Park, and finish inside the park. THe 2016 race saw 1,386 runners take part. THe winners were Adam Kirk-Smith in 33min 11sec and Emma Montiel in 38:13. THey left the race records of 30min 31sec set by Tadele Geremew in 2013 and Linda Spencer's 33:39 from 2012 untouched. THe latest race will be the first in which Bognor Hotham Rotary Club - which

launched the sporting spectacle in 1995 formally linked with the town's Tone Zone running club based at the Arun Leisure Centre. THe partnership had progressed well, said Mr Oclee-Brown. "It has made a real difference to us to have Tone Zone Runners involved. THey have raised the prospect of running the event next year but still under the charity umbrella of the Rotary Club. Hopefully, it will be a good combination. "I'm always delighted with how many people want to enter the race. We have quite a few who enter every year. "I think everyone in the town knows the race exists and there is a lot of support behind it," he said. "THe runners say they really appreciate coming along the seafront towards West Park and all the spectators cheering them on and praising them." Everyone who has entered manually in the past three years will automatically be sent an entry form by the end of this month. THe race will keep its strong emphasis on charity, said Mr Oclee-Brown. Last year saw some £12,000 raised to help the Stonepillow charity's work with homeless people around Bognor Regis and Chichester. THe latest charity partner is the CancerWise centre in Chichester. Runners also raise money for their chosen causes to increase the benefit of taking part.

Exclusive firm gives pupils business tips MANAGERS from one of the world's top yacht makers gave a unique insight into their firm to Felpham Community College. Sunseeker general sales manager Christopher Head and south of France customer service manager Lindsay Hutchinson provided an invaluable experience to the pupils. THey spent last Friday morning giving unrivalled tips and advice about how to succeed in the modern business world. Ms Hutchinson flew back from her new role on the Cote d'Azure specially to take part in the visit. Mr Head said it was the first time in his 30 years with the exclusive manufacturer he had visited a college to talk about his work. "We had several requests from schools after the company appeared in a BBC documentary but this was the only one we agreed to visit. "We thought it would be good to give the students an insight into what we do. We tried to give them information about the wider scope of the business," he said. Ms Hutchinson said: "We explained what we do and the way we look after customers." She told the students: "We are producing a massive luxury product.

It has to be right and right first time. THere's no argument about that." Both praised the students for their accurate presentations about the firm. Sunseeker International builds multimillion pound yachts at Poole in Dorset. Mr Head is based in Mayfair in London for its sister company, Sunseeker London, and Ms Head in its four offices along the south of France.Between them, both companies sell 180 new and used yachts a year worth a combined £150m. Would-be salesman Sam Lee, 16, pictured on the front page, said: "THis was a great opportunity to learn about the company, how they treat their customers not as just customers but as family or friends. "THey gave a lot of tips about what they do to get sales and it was much better to talk to them in person than just learn something from the internet." BTEC business student Rose Forrester, 17, who wants to be a criminal psychologist, said: "It was good to understand the passion behind the business. If you want to go into business, you need to know what it will be like and the amount of work you have to put in. "THe speakers were saying how they work 24/7 where I had thought of work as being nine to five."

Students' brilliant work studying virus

f Robert, left, and Kieran

f The successful pupils from The Regis School by Kevin Smith kevin.smith@sussexpost.co.uk 01243 908506 ext 11 POTENTIAL undergraduates from Bognor Regis have proved their brilliance in a national project. THe 11 hard-working Year 8 students at THe Regis School all passed the Brilliant Club Project. Nine of them received first class marks for gaining a rating of at least 70 per cent for their research into the Ebola virus. Two achieved a 2:1 rating. Crystal Johnson, who passed the project with 78 per cent, said: "I loved it and I loved learning about new and interesting things." THe Brilliant Club Project is a national scheme which is aimed at raising

aspirations and helping students to engage in the possibilities of higher education. All the students involved took the chance to participate and complete the project to the best of their abilities. Following the launch trip to Oxford University, the students attended six tutorials with a PhD tutor. Each then wrote a 1,500 word assignment which explored current research about the deadly virus and the cause and prevention of pandemics. THey attended an official certification ceremony at Sussex University after they received their marks last month. In a review of the scheme, all the students at the ceremony said it was 'very likely' or 'most likely' they would apply to go to university to study for a degree.

All graded it 'very likely' or 'most likely' they would get into university if they applied. Victoria Walker, an assistant principal at the school, said: "We are absolutely thrilled to see the determination and resilience of these students pay off and to see that our students are keen to explore the possibilities that higher education can offer them in the future. "THese students worked extremely hard throughout the project and we are exceptionally proud of these achievements. "As a Rights Respecting School, we know that is of upmost importance that we develop the talents and abilities of all our students. THe chance to complete the renowned Brilliant Club has provided these students with this fantastic opportunity to shine."

Sixth-form students among top young biologists across globe TWO SIXTH-FORM students from Felpham Community College are among the best biologists in the world. Kieran Quinlan and Robert Bradbury, who are both in Year 13, recorded some of the top marks in the latest British Biology Olympiad. Robert received a bronze award to place him within the top 30 per cent of the 7,500 students who entered the competition. Kieran achieved a commended certificate. Robert said: "THe exams covered AS and A2 theory, some of the questions were really tough. "But it was good exam practice for the summer which is why we chose to take part." Robert said: "We are both taking A-level biology and hope to study biochemistry at university next year."

THey sat the two exam papers required for the competition in the middle of last month within the college in strict exam conditions. THe British Biology Olympiad is open to students around the world. It challenges and stimulates students with an interest in biology to expand and extend their talents and demonstrate their knowledge. One of the main aims of the competition is to encourage students already interested in biology to continue their study beyond A-level. Susan Buckland, a science teacher at the college, said: "THe Olympiad exams are always incredibly tough and only a small number of biology students each year choose to sit them. "Both boys did really well and we are very proud of them."

` Relationship help funded by grant HUNDREDS of Felpham Community College students have benefited from lessons in healthy relationships and sex. THe sessions were funded by a £823 grant from the Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership small grants fund. It enabled the Pregnancy Options Centre to deliver its programme of advice sessions to students on important issues such as healthy relationship boundaries, consent and myths and facts about sex. THe funding also helped the centre to provide healthy relationship education to a group of pregnant teenage mums from Bognor Regis, Felpham, Yapton and Arundel. Catherine Kimbangi, a project manager at the centre, said: "In total, we saw 236 students through the duration of the project. "Both boys and girls benefited from the project, which also has a wider impact on their friends and family." Cllr Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council's cabinet member for communities services, said providing the grant had fulfilled a useful role. "Providing teenagers with honest, straightforward advice about sex and healthy relationships at this time in their lives is fundamental. "THe project at Felpham Community College helped to provide education to over 200 students and I am pleased the partnership was able to support this work," he said. THe Pregnancy Options Centre provides free counselling and support to those within the Arun and Chichester districts who are dealing with an unplanned pregnancy, post abortion or pregnancy loss. It also runs educational programmes for teenagers through schools with the aim of reducing unplanned pregnancies.

because I always watch people running with these heart rate monitors and I wondered what they were about." Chris had his resting heart rate measured by his GP the previous week at 50 beats a minute. He said: "It's interesting to see how much stress I can put my heart under and how long it takes to get back to normal." He completed the run in about 21 minutes and has taken part in some 70 of the Saturday morning events. He also runs 8km home from work on Tuesdays and THursdays. THe latest parkrun attracted 211 entrants in near freezing conditions. THe first recorded male home was Jack Penfold in 19min 9sec and the first female was Juliet Stallard in 21:44.. Among them was wellbeing team member Tom Howell dressed in a foam giant heart. "It was all right wearing it on a day like today because it gave me added insulation," he said. Wellbeing advisor Kay Bradley said: "We are here as part of our healthy heart month campaign. It's good to see so many people here taking part. We are interested in helping the spectators as well as the runners. "It's all about taking a bit of exercise quite often to help a person stay healthy. "We are a prevention service aimed at changing people's behaviour to make them healthier. It could be to do with their diet or taking more exercise. "We want to reduce the number of premature deaths in the Arun district and that can be done by a person making quite small changes to their lifestyle." THe health profile for the Arun district shows men in its most deprived areas die 10.1 years earlier than those in the wealthiest and women die ten years earlier. It shows the number of deaths from heart attacks and strokes is slightly better than the national average and those from cancer slightly worse.

Cameras will make rail crossing safer f An artist's view of the proposed houses

Company reveals Yapton housing INITIAL plans have been revealed for more than 50 homes in Yapton. Sundial Planning wants to build the housing on land at Cinders Nursery and at the back of Cinders Lane. THe company's planning agent, Patrick Barry, says in a statement: "THe site was formerly a horticultural nursery with evidence of this use in the form of derelict glasshouses. "THe site now comprises an existing bungalow, two static homes and an area of hardstanding used as a wood yard. THe remaining parts of the site are overgrown with vegetation and trees." THe intended homes will comprise eight one-bed and one two-bed flats, 33 two and three-bed semi-detached

houses and ten three-bed four-bed detached houses on 1.75 hectares. THe proposals involve moving the existing doctor's surgery access and road widening at the junction with Bilsham Road. Arun District Council will decide the application. Yapton resident Chris Sprules has told the council on behalf of the Sustrans organisation: "THe ever-increasing level of planning applications for housing estates in Yapton is leading to an unsustainable demand on our roads and country lanes. "THis increases the safety risk to road-users, especially cyclists, causes frustation to road users and has a negative impact on health."

f A view of the level crossing

NEW CAMERAS are planned to stop motorists risking their lives at a level crossing in Yapton. Network Rail has asked for planning permission to put in red light safety equipment at the site at Yapton Lane/ North End Road. A six metre high column will be installed either side of the crossing and equipped with technology to prevent drivers risking their lives by colliding with passing trains. A statement from the firm says: "THe ROADflow Metro red light safety equipment is a Home Office type approved system for enforcing traffic at level crossings. "THe system consists of three cameras. A context camera to provide an overview of the incident, an automatic number plate recognition camera that reads vehicle registration marks and a camera that monitors the status of the wig-wags at the level crossing." Wig-wags are the flashing signals seen at level crossings when the barriers are lowered or being lowered. "Yapton level crossing has been identified by Network Rail's south east route team as high risk and research has confirmed that there is significant levels of deliberate vehicle misuse at the crossing. "Installing red light safety equipment at this site is, therefore, seen as an effective means of reducing level crossing risk and improving public and passenger safety," the statement adds.

"A day packed with the hottest jive and swing musicians."

The unstoppable Jive Aces

"Support performers from your local University in this witty outing."

CONTINUING Chichester Cinema’s passion for screening cinematic gems, they are giving audiences the chance to watch the 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko this February. Upon reaching the age of 15 years, this film was given a 4K restoration to allow audiences to enjoy the best quality version of the film as possible, and it is this remastered film that the Chichester Cinema will be showing. Donnie Darko is an unsettling, thoughtprovoking, yet thoroughly engrossing film that seems to delve into the problematic

themes of mental health, time and fate, although it is never clear if that is the case or if the events that happen should be taken at face value. THe life of troubled teenager Donnie (played superbly by Jake Gyllenhaal) is thrown further out of control by the apparition of a haunting figure: a monstrous bunny called Frank. When Frank tells Donnie that the end of the world is nigh what follows is a series of eerie and puzzling events. Also starring the talents of Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle, and Maggie Gyllenhaal, this screening of Donnie Darko is a fantastic experience for fans of the film and a great introduction for those who have never seen it before. Tickets range from £5.50-£8.50.

February 26 Kings Theatre, Portsmouth boxoffice@kingsportsmouth.co.uk 023 9282 8282 www.kingsportsmouth.co.uk

"This is a great introduction to opera due to its beautiful score and timeless storyline."

THIS brand-new production of Puccini's La Bohème is directed by highly experienced opera director and producer Ellen Kent, and will be staged traditionally to create the most authentic operatic experience as possible. Set in early 19th century Paris, La Bohème follows the stories of a group of bohemians struggling with not just poverty but also with love, loss and illness. Often citied as one of the most romantic operas ever written, it features the tragic tale of the doomed, consumptive Mimi and her love for a penniless writer, among others. In this production, the set will reflect the Bohemian art of the period and will include live music and also English subtitles for those not so hot on their Italian. A staple of classical music you can expect to hear several recognisable melodies such as Your Tiny Hand is Frozen, They Call Me Mimi and, of course, Musetta’s Waltz. Since La Bohème first debuted on stage in 1896, its popularity has only increased and it is now one of the most frequently performed operas in the world. Modern audiences, however, may be more familiar with the 1990s Broadway musical Rent which was, in fact, heavily influenced by La Bohème. Tickets range from £18.50-£22.50.

Something for everyone at the Clock House Cafe by Fiona Callingham SITUATED on the bustling High Street in Bognor Regis, the Clock House Cafe has always been one of my favourite stops for whatever type of food I might fancy. Whether it’s a tempting all-day breakfast, a healthy jacket potato or a filling homemade main meal like a lasagne that you’re after, THe Clock House Cafe will not disappoint with its delicious and extensive menu. It’s not just about the food though. With its homely atmosphere and friendly staff, customers always feel welcome in the cafe. THis is evident by the amount of customers who regularly visit for their meals, snacks or hot drinks. For those in search of the ultimate breakfast, the Clock House offers a wide range of different options, making sure everyone can find the kind of food to start their day they way they want. If you’ve got a big day ahead why not try their famous Newtown breakfast, consisting of a whopping 13 food items? THis includes two sausages, two slices of bacon, two hash browns, an egg, bubble and squeak, a burger, mushrooms, tomatoes or beans and two slices of toast or fried bread. Phew! I'm feeling full up just thinking about it! For all this and a cup of tea or coffee it is only £6.95. However, you don't need to order mammoth breakfasts such as the Newtown. THe most popular choice for customers in the morning is the Aldwick

breakfast, comprising of sausage, bacon, egg, beans or tomatoes and toast for only £2.95. As a vegetarian, I am always impressed by the Felpham breakfast - made up of a vegetarian sausage, two eggs, two hash browns or bubble and squeak and toast. It's one of the few times we vegetarians need never feel left out. Lunch is also a treat at the Clock House. All their meals are lovingly prepared in the cafe’s kitchen by their talented chefs. Highlights include the delicious lasagne, of which there is both a meat and vegetable option. I also love their flavoursome soups: both tomato and basil, and leek and potato which are equally nourishing and warming, perfect for the cold weather. Priced at only £3.50 for the soup and a crusty bread roll, it is such good value. THeir menu also includes such tasty delights as fillet steaks, beef and chicken burgers, and a range of sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and salads. Clock House Cafe prides itself on its homemade delights. THe cottage pie, macaroni cheese, chilli con carne and chicken jalfrezi boast a real freshness that only comes with homemade meals. THis is aided by the use of the best produce in their food. All the eggs used in the cafe are free range and their meat suppliers only deal in fresh, tender meat. Part of their dedication for creating

such tasty and fresh food comes from the family atmopshere of the place. Run by a family and their friends, it is understandable that they strive to make the cafe as welcoming as possible, both through their friendly greetings and the delicious and tempting food. If you pop into Clock House while out and about on a shopping trip, it might be worth looking at their light lunch menu if you're only in need of a snack. Why not try their popular cheese and bacon filled potato skins, or a goats cheese crustini with red onion chutney? THe hot drinks at Clock House must not be forgotten. THeir range of coffees such as lattes, cappuccinos and mochas will entice every coffee fan. THey also make a range of teas as well as hot chocolates, and for the kids in all of us, milkshakes. THey also offer a wide selection of cakes and other treats for those with

a sweet tooth. Popular among their customers are their creamy carrot cake, rich chocolate cake and delicious scones - all these perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. So why not make the Clock House Cafe a regular pit stop whether before work, for a quick coffee with a friend or as a friendly and value-formoney place to spend your lunch? THe team there are looking forward to meeting you! THey are open Monday-Friday, 7.30am-5pm, Saturday, 8.30am5pm, and Sundays, 9.30am-4.30pm. To find out more, call them on 01243 861522.

Wines that reign supreme Martin Lury Our very own bon vivant gets to grips with all the best buys

A WEEK has elapsed et nous voilà at Majestic Wine Warehouse in Chichester à la recherche de bons vins at an affordable price! Lucy, wine guru, as they are so quaintly named, steered me in the direction of a 2015 Casal De Ventozela Vinho Verde. THis is currently one of the wines you can taste in-store and Vinho Verde is back in vogue with sales on a seriously upward curve - a wine not sufficiently effervescent to be officially classified as a sparkling wine, but with an obvious pétillance nonetheless. As one of six bottles, this example retails currently at £7.99 and comes from northern Portugal with its lush, green landscape and temperate climate so conducive to grape vine production. Vinho Verde does not, however, mean green wine, but young wine released three to six months after harvest. THis wine from the mineral Arinto grape is zesty, crisp, light and fresh with green apple and peach flavours and would be ideal as an apéritif or an accompaniment to salad, seafood or Asian cuisine. THe

slight sparkle is delightful and a wine I thoroughly recommend to you! My next selection involved a slight variation on the same theme in the form of a 2015 Casal De Ventozela, a single varietal wine from the alvarihno grape, the Portuguese cousin of the Spanish fashionable Albariño and made just over the border. If you want to try a particularly distinctive and different wine , one that ignites the taste buds with citrus and apple flavours to the fore with added depth from ageing in oak barrels and time spent on its lees and a floral character with a hint of blossom for just under £10 , if part of six bottles, then this entirely fits the bill! My final foray into the white wine realm was a trusted old favourite, a 2016 New Zealand Brancott Estate Sauvignon Blanc, a veritable crowd pleaser for £6.99, whose first vintage appeared in 1979 and one that remains a benchmark Sauvignon Blanc, powerfully aromatic with an intense nose of tropical fruit, crisp

and fresh with a lively fruit character and perfect balance - what, pray, is there not to like at this price? Averting attention to the red section, I espied a 2013 Viña Eguía Rioja Reserva at a competitive offer price of £6.99 and given that Eguia means truth in Basque, veritably speaking, this wine, with its vanilla, coconut and balsamic notes, dry, spicy character coupled with a velvety texture, is good value at this price as, as the Americans would say, Rioja offers great bang for the buck! Lucy, earning her spurs, suggested that I should partake of a Carpineto Dogajolo Toscano of 2014 vintage, so I duly obliged and have to confess no vestige of disappointment! Hints of tanned leather permeate

this wine and it is both structured and decidedly earthy and culminates in a smooth finish. With the deep colour of a young wine coupled with a fruity and fragrant bouquet, this wine at a discounted price of £8.99 is well worth a punt! Finally, I selected a Ripasso Valpolicella superiore at an offer price of £ 10.99 - wild cherries and a delectably smooth palate with sweet spice flavours and a wine to savour, à mon avis! So, whether it be Portuguese, Spanish or Italian, there's a lot to love at these prices!

Readers' Readers' Recipes Recipes Have you got a recipe for a home-made dish you'd like us to feature? We would like a picture too! Please send them to: recipes@sussexpost.co.uk

RHUBARB, VANILLA AND ALMOND LATTICE TART INGREDIENTS • 240g plain flour, plus extra to dust • 140g ground almonds • 200g unsalted butter, softened • 100g caster sugar • 2 large egg yolks • 1.5kg rhubarb, ends trimmed • 200g caster sugar, plus extra to • sprinkle • Zest and juice 1 orange • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

difficulty: easy total time: 1h 30mins serves: 8

METHOD 1. For the pastry, whizz together the flour, almonds, butter and a pinch of salt in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and egg yolks, then whizz until the pastry comes together into a ball. (If you don’t have a food processor, rub together the flour, almonds, sugar and butter with your fingers in a bowl, then stir in the egg yolks with a wooden spoon.) Shape the dough into a flat disc, wrap in cling film and chill for 40 minutes. 2. Put all the filling ingredients and 50ml water in a large pan. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook over a low heat for 15 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat, strain away the excess rhubarb juice and leave to cool. 3. .Roll out two thirds of the pastry to a roughly 30cm circle. Carefully roll the pastry around the dusted rolling pin and unroll into a 23cm pie dish or tart tin. Use a piece of pastry to push the pastry case into the edges of the tin, then trim away any excess. Use the trimmings to patch any gaps.

4. Chill for 20 minutes in the fridge (or for 10 in the freezer). 5. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. 6. Line the pastry case with a large piece of baking paper/foil and fill with baking beans/rice. 7. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then remove the beans/rice and paper/foil and cook for a further five minutes or until the pastry feels sandy. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly. 8. Spoon the rhubarb into the tart case, then roll out the rest of the pastry into a 14cm x 24cm rectangle the thickness of a £1 coin. Slice the pastry into 14 x 1cm wide strips. 9. Lay one strip on top of the pie, a couple of centimetres from the edge of the dish, then trim the ends, pressing them down gently onto the pastry rim to secure. Repeat but at 90 degrees. Continue laying on pastry strips, alternating the direction, leaving a 2cm gap between them to create a lattice of overlapping strips. 10. Sprinkle the tart with caster sugar, then bake for 1520 minutes until the pastry is golden on top and the filling is warmed through.

Health &

Well-being

by Denise Kelly

Un-beetable health benefits! EVERY week I like to talk about something useful, that we can all include in our diets daily. Often, we already know about such things, but its good to be reminded. Science has proven beyond all doubt that a high intake of fruits and vegetables can reduce the risk of developing an array of diseases. Beetroot, in particular, is extraordinarily rich in unique disease-fighting and anti-cancer chemicals, and I am talking about the raw beetroot, not that beetroot pickled in a jar! I find with most of my clients that beetroot is a bit like Marmite: you either love it or you hate it! Personally, I love it, although not the stain on my hands after chopping - but I suppose this is a small price to pay for all the magnificent health benefits associated with this wonderful vegetable. THe beautiful, rich crimson colour of beetroot comes from betacyanins, natural compounds that are powerful cancer-fighting agents. Beetroot also contains powerful health-promoting phytochemicals called betalains.

One of the most researched betalains in beetroot is called betanin. Betanin has outstanding antiinflammatory, antioxidant, and detoxifying effects. According to THe World’s Healthiest Foods (a website run by the not-for-profit George Mateljan Foundation, devoted to fostering a healthier world), studies show that betanin pigments can impede tumour cell growth in tissues from the colon, stomach, nerves, lungs, breasts, prostate

and testicles. THe Word’s Healthiest Foods website predicts that “Eventually, we expect to see large-scale human studies that show the cancer risk-reducing effect of dietary beet intake.” With numerous proven benefits for virtually every system of the body, (far too many to list them all) I just wanted to share a few of the many known effects of beetroot on our bodies. THese include boosting strength and stamina, stimulating the immune system, preventing colds and flu, reconstructing blood, accelerating cell growth and restoring cell structure, regulating blood pressure, lowering body temperature, strengthening skin and vein walls and removing heavy metals and toxins from the brain. It has also been found to speed the formation of red corpuscles, therefore improving cellular oxygenation, boosting mood, promoting healthy nails, shiny hair and smoother skin, purifying and detoxifying the liver, kidneys, and bladder as well as relieving constipation. It is an incredible vegetable! If you want to try beetroot for better overall health or to treat a specific health problem, you’re in long-standing company. THe Romans enjoyed a daily glass of beetroot juice to maximize health in a multitude of ways. As the taste of beetroot juice is so powerful, I would advise that gradual introduction is best, with very small quantities to start, and incremental increases made over time. Sometimes, when first used in larger quantities, it can be common to feel slightly unwell from beetroot juice. It may be a sign of “too much of a good thing,” as your body tries to flush out more toxins than your system can efficiently eliminate. Mixing beetroot juice into another milder juice such as carrot, cucumber, or apple is a good idea when juicing yourself. People with chronic liver or kidney problems must be especially careful as over consumption could overload the liver and kidney, and therefore, should be taken only in very small doses. On average, 1/4 cup per day is a good starting dose for health maintenance. Just try and and see! Talking of all things health, my wonderful friend, Max Tuck, is launching her new book The Fatigue

The Fatigue Solution My astonishing journey from medical write-off to marathons and mountains THin, weak and almost beaten by Epstein-Barr virus and chronic fatigue, Max Tuck refused to accept her diagnosis of incurable. Convinced that her grinding exhaustion could be cured through a radical change in diet and lifestyle, she set about proving it, not just to herself but to everyone who doubted her. THis is not just a book about how to reverse chronic fatigue or a general discourse on how to gain more energy; it is an insight into the mindset of someone who wasn’t satisfied with just becoming well again, but who wanted to push herself postillness to see what she was capable of. Part science and part autobiography, this is the remarkable story of how a young woman went from medical write-off to mountains and marathons; how she rejected exhaustion and rediscovered life. It's a must read for not just those diagnosed with chronic fatigue, but everyone who wants to have the soaring energy levels that allow them to live life to the full. “What I love about this literary journey is the personalisation which when woven together with scientific fact presents an unchallengeable pathway to success. THank you, Max, for writing THe Fatigue Solution which I am sure will help endless people in their quest to gain health and happiness.” – Brian Clement PhD, LN. Director, Hippocrates Health Institute, Florida. “Max Tuck takes us on a journey of discovery, highlighting what can happen if we don’t listen to our bodies, and how to overcome and recover from the lowest points to the highest peaks. THis book is inspirational, and a must as we journey through life.” – Norman Cowans. Former England, Middlesex and Hampshire cricketer.

Community News & Views JC Solicitors By Lizzie Spraggs We are here to listen. We are here to help.

Is your property registered with the Land Registry? THE LAND Registry (also known as Her Majesty's Land Registry) is an non-ministerial department of the government of the UK. It was created in 1862 in order to officially record the ownership of property and land in England and Wales. Initially, registration of property and land was voluntary. However, the Land Registration Act 1925 made registration compulsory. Compulsory registration was gradually phased in, county by county, until by 1990 any transfer of land or property triggered the need to register it at the Land Registry. When the Land Registration Act 2002 replaced the 1925 Act, it considerably increased the triggers for compulsory registration. THus, all land bought, sold, gifted or mortgaged must now be registered at the Land Registry. If you have owned your home since before 1990, and not taken a mortgage since, it may not be registered. So how can you find out? If you hold your title deeds at home, a quick check will reveal if you have a beige Land Certificate or a blue Charge Certificate. THis means your home already holds a title number on the Land Register at the Land Registry. If you have a bundle of various old original documents, and the document used to transfer the property into your name at the time of the purchase is a conveyance, it is likely that your property remains unregistered. Although you are not under any obligation to register your land at the Land Registry, there are many advantages to instructing a conveyancer to submit a voluntary first registration application on your behalf - a registered title is guaranteed by the state. If someone suffers a loss because of a mistake or omission from the register, he or she may be able to obtain compensation. An up to date official record of who owns the land will be provided, thus eliminating the need to examine a past history of the title. THis is known as a Title Information Document. An official plan of the land will be provided based on the larger scale Ordnance Survey maps. THis is known as a Title Plan. Once a property is registered at the Land Registry, it is if little or no consequence if the unregistered title deeds are lost. All the important information is stored electronically by the Land Registry. It provides greater security of title and protection from fraud.

It is much easier for a third party to obtain squatters' rights, or a neighbour to move a boundary, on unregistered land. Should you wish to sell or mortgage your property in the future, registering your property will ensure that fewer additional enquiries are raised and prevent any unnecessary delays in the completion of such transactions. Any defects in title will have been resolved at the time of registration. Lizzie Spraggs is a licensed conveyancer at JC Solicitors and is experienced in the sale of all properties. Call her on 01243 850860.

THe 41 Rotarians were able to enjoy watching MPs debating from the Strangers' Gallery in the House of Commons.

FIRST-TIME novelist David Warwick will be helping would-be writers discover their talents. David has published his debut fiction work, Chorus Endings, after 42 successful non-fiction books. He is following this up with a free session at Chichester Library from 12.10pm to 12.50pm next THursday in which he will be showing those who go along how to search out the hidden novel he believes most people have within them.

one saw the ever-bobbing members in actions, all trying to catch the eye of the Speaker. "But some, I think, were merely doing their exercises." THe visit began with a look around Westminster Hall and the lobby area with its mass of history represented by the statues and paintings of some of Britain's most famous people as well as a tour of the House of Lords. THe Rotarians also enjoyed the Terrace Room as well as the Terrace overlooking the THames before lunch with town MP Nick Gibb.

Fact into Fiction: One Way of Writing a Novel will explain how this can be done. David said: "THe ingredients are all there but writing about what you know is just the beginning. "Taking things a stage further is the important part - into the realms of 'What If?', 'How Come?' and 'Why Not?' He says Chorus Endings is an example of basing fiction on fact. Its tale of twists and darkly sinister undertones is based on routine events and experiences in everyday life.

PUPILS and friends of the Regis School of Music will perform the next concert at Bognor Regis Music Club. THe concert tomorrow will comprise performances by current and former students. One of those taking part, cellist James Dew, 14, pictured below, now studies at the junior Royal College of Music and has recently retired from the National Children's Orchestra and is finalist in the West Sussex Youth Musician of the Year competition. Founder and inspiration of the Regis School, Sasha Levtov, said: "We very much appreciate this invitation, as it gives our young musicians an excellent opportunity to share their music with an appreciative audience, to build up their confidence and to gain valuable share experience. "Events like this are the best possible reward to young musicians for all their efforts in practising and perfecting their performances. "It is a wonderful opportunity to meet with the members of another friendly music society dedicated to the art of music and together encourage a new generation of musicians." Bognor Regis Music Club chairman Chris Coote said: "We are pleased to have such a good relationship with the Regis School of Music and are particularly looking forward to this special concert. We know from past visits that the concert will be of an exceptionally high standard. We admire Sasha and Nina Levtov who founded the school some 20 years ago and have raised up so many excellent musicians over the years." THe concert will take place at the club's concert room at 7pm at 2 Sudley Road. Entry is £6 members, £8 visitors and £4 students.

THIS spring Pallant House Gallery in Chichester are holding the first major exhibition in the Sidney Nolan Centenary 2017. As part of a nationwide programme presented by the Sidney Nolan Trust to celebrate this leading figure of 20th century art, the exhibition focuses on Nolan’s time living and working in Britain and the critical reception he received there. It brings together works that reveal recurring themes such as Australian history and literature, mythology, and the tragic hero/anti-hero, whilst showing how he incorporated European influences into his Australian subjects. During his lifetime, Nolan produced an extraordinarily diverse body of work, working in a wide range of materials and experimenting with new techniques. Within a decade of arriving in the UK, Nolan had established himself as a pivotal figure in the British art world with important exhibitions, including a major retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1957, under his belt. THe exhibition at Pallant House Gallery will include iconic paintings from the 50s and 60s depicting solitary, often doomed figures in a style that updated landscape painting for a 20th century audience. Featuring ‘mythic’ figures from Australian history such as the famous outlaw Ned Kelly, the tragic explorers Burke and Wills and Mrs Fraser, who was shipwrecked and imprisoned by Aborigines, Nolan explored subjects that were equally rooted in British colonial history and grounded in universal themes such as the nature of heroism. In fact, many of Nolan’s paintings of these subjects were painted in England and these transferences lend the exhibition its title. THe Sidney Nolan Centenary 2017 programme includes exhibitions at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, the Australian High Commission and the British Museum, and symposiums at the Royal Academy of Arts and King’s College London.

Two churches in road built within four years

f QUICK

Growing congregations were catered for with new buildings THE FIRST church we will be looking at this week is the Aldwick Baptist Church in Gossamer Lane, Aldwick, originally the Aldwick Free Church (Baptist). As the town started to expand in the 1930s, the Free Church Federal Council of Bognor Regis discussed the building of a number of free churches in the district. It was ultimately decided that to avoid duplication the church divisions would be Aldwick – Baptist, Felpham – Methodist and North Bersted – Congregational. At this time apparently the Bognor Baptist Church did not feel able to undertake such an enormous task, but a member of their church, Osborne Clayton THomas, considered the possibility of raising funds for a new church. He was a very successful commercial traveller for MacFarlane Laing & Co., the biscuit manufacturer, and was also quite a driving force in the area. He met a retired Baptist Minister namely the Rev George Elder Johnson - who had retired due to ill-health, but who was running a small boarding house in the area with his wife. Finally, they approached Cyril Douglas Robbins, who had moved into the area, and these three men became the driving force behind the new church. It was suggested that the new church should be named the King George

V Memorial Church. Appeals commenced both in the area and also via the network of Baptist churches to raise the much-needed funds, and, of course, a site had to be found. A farmer in the Nyetimber area, Mr Smart, had decided to sell certain parts of his land and one such was next to Gossamer Lane. He kindly gave the church first choice of a site plus an additional plot to enable there to be a rear entrance from Willowhale Avenue. THe land cost £641, which was quite a large amount in the 1930s. With the acquisition of the land, the building of the church began in 1937, the local company of Messrs. Fryer & Sons, Builders, of Rose Green being involved. THey decided the church should be sited to the rear of the land to enable a larger premises to be built in the future. THe original church consisted of seating for only 168 with a platform, small kitchen and a small room to be used as the vestry. THe foundation stone was laid during a ceremony on February 24, 1938, with a scroll being set under the stone. THe grand opening took place on May 11, 1938, when Mrs Peter Derry unlocked the door to allow entry to their new pemises. THe guest preacher was the Rev Sutton, the Baptist area superintendent. Finally, on June 29, 1938, the first prayer meeting was

held with 16 members. THe Rev GE Johnston became the first minister, Mr OC THomas, the secretary, and Mr Robbins, the treasurer. THe church and congregation grew over the ensuing years necessitating fund-raising once again on quite a large scale. THis included the ability to ‘buy a brick’ costing 1/- (5p) each for the new building, something we think of as a modern method of fundraising. In 1953, there was another stone-laying ceremony when a hall and larger kitchen was built, and this was opened on September 2, 1953. Sadly, in 1954, the Rev G. Johnston died at the age of 75 but as a memorial the new church hall was named after him at a special service on February 2 the following year. We next look at St Richard’s Church, also on Gossamer Lane. It is one of the last traditionally built churches in the area and also the last stone built church in Sussex. In 1931, the Rev Mosse was asked by the Bishop of Chichester to start a new parish in Aldwick as the parish which at that time stretched from Bognor Regis to Pagham was considered to be too large. THere was only a small chapel situated near the rear of Aldwick Grange which was inadequate. Rev Mosse was then involved in the task of building the new church. THe design of the new structure was left to him, only to be finalised by the Diocese. He engaged the services of his brother-in-law, architect Francis Gordon Troup, who decided to move away from the trend of the day of using red bricks instead opting for local stone, with a Portland stone dressing. Some of the stones used were more than 100 years old as they came from Chichester Cathedral. THe church was also one of the first

to have central heating. Troup also designed other diverse buildings such as a hotel in Brighton and part of a hospital in East Grinstead. Eventually, the Diocese purchased the current plot of land for £525. Monies had to be raised and the fund started with a gift of £4,500 from the parents of Rev Mosse, then £4,000 came from the Sussex Church Builders and finally a further £5,000 was guaranteed so work was able to begin. THe foundation stone was laid for St Richard’s Church on April 3, 1933, by the Rt Rev Southwell, the assistant Bishop of Chichester. Money continued to arrive via a ‘buy a brick campaign’ plus contributions from private individuals and supporters of the church. THe church cost £12,300 to build, with a further £1,150 being required for the organ. THe church was finally consecrated on May 12, 1934, having taken 13 months to build. While the sums raised helped to build the church, other items such as the hassocks, choir stalls, chairs and clocks were gifts from individuals. Even the children of the Rev Mosse contributed with the purchase of the figure of St Richard over the main door of the church. When the church was consecrated, the altar was bare with no crosses or candles and also lacked covers. THe visiting parties were received by the Rev Mosse and the Rev. Knox the vicar of Pagham. THe church was then blessed and finally the cross and other items were brought into the church and blessed separately. And there we end this week's look at Aldwick's churches.

Kia’s new hybrid. No really. It’s a hybrid KIA HAS shaken up the staid world of hybrid vehicles with the all-new Niro. Combining the in-demand styling of a compact crossover vehicle with the low emissions and high fuel economy of a hybrid car, the Niro has CO2 emissions as low as 88g/km and fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg. Niro is not based on any other Kia but is a dedicated hybrid model with an all-new powertrain featuring a 1.6-litre, 104bhp internal combustion engine and a 43.5bhp electric motor driving through a six-speed double-clutch automatic transmission. With its crossover design it is anything but a run-of-the-mill hybrid, however. THe sleek crossover profile has a class-leading low drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.29, while extensive use of high-strength steel and aluminium in the body construction helps to keep down weight. Both are significant factors in Niro's impressively low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Niro comes in a four-model line-up badged ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’ and ‘First Edition’. All are comprehensively equipped with comfort, luxury, connectivity and driver assistance features. Every version has a Lane Keep Assist System, Hill-start Assist Control, Cruise Control and a Speed Limiter. Every Niro also has a DAB radio and is able to support Bluetooth smartphone connectivity and

music streaming. Autonomous Emergency Braking and Smart Cruise Control are optionally available on grades ‘1’, ‘2’ and ‘3’ in an ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) package. With these features fitted, Niro has been awarded a five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP. Until now, dedicated crossovers have largely been much of a muchness, shaped by aerodynamic considerations above style, practicality and desirability. But Kia does not do elevator music. When embarking on the Niro project it decided to go for a modern, attractive crossover body style with ample room for five people plus their luggage. One remarkable feat is that this has been achieved with a drag coefficient (Cd) of only 0.29, even on versions with roof rails. THe styling of the high-quality interior features a wide dashboard set out on horizontal lines, with an upper display sector that houses the instrument panel and infotainment screen at the same height, separated by a cabin-wide trim line from the lower control area, where the heating and ventilation and driver assistance switches are located. Niro is a parallel hybrid, which means that most of the time the petrol and electric power units work together. However, it can operate in all-electric mode for short distances when

` Test drive the all-new Kia Niro at Newbarn Kia, 65 Aldwick Road, Bognor Regis ` Call 01243 841200 setting off, under gentle acceleration and when descending slopes or braking. A brake energy recovery system recoups energy normally dissipated as heat and stores it in the batteries for use later. THe switch between all-electric, hybrid or petrol engine-only modes is seamless and varies according to the load being placed on the powertrain at any given time. THis advanced powertrain ensures Niro is capable of up to 74.3mpg, with CO2 emissions from only 88g/km. THe in-house 6DCT gearbox incorporates a new Transmission-Mounted Electric Device (TMED) which allows the full output of both

power units to be transferred in parallel to the drive wheels, with minimal energy losses. THis differs from the power-split system typical of CVT transmissions, which convert a portion of engine output for delivery through the electric motor, resulting in a loss of energy. TMED allows the hybrid system to access battery power directly at higher speeds for swifter response. You can see and test drive the Kia Niro at Newbarn Kia, 65 Aldwick Road, Bognor Regis – Telephone 01243 841200.

Chichester's title hopes are dented PostSport after a ten goal thriller with rivals Tim Ridgway Hockey sport@sussexpost.co.uk CHICHESTER'S hopes of lifting the women's Sussex Premier League have been dented after a 5-5 draw with title challengers Horsham Seconds. Chi have been in imperious form all season, winning 13 of their 15 league matches and posting a positive goal difference of 57. THey went into the match on Saturday sitting in first place knowing that a win over their promotion rivals would consolidate their lead. Victory would also mean that Meg Goring's side would keep their fate in their own hands - with three points from each of their last six matches sealing the title. But, despite being cheered on by a decent crowd at Kingsham, it was not meant to be, as Horsham returned home with a point after a thrilling 5-5 draw. THis, combined with a win for the now frontrunners Brighton and Hove seconds, means Chi are second, two points off top spot. With Horsham sitting a point behind in third but with one game in hand, Goring's side now

must rely on their two rivals slipping up if their promotion dreams are to be kept alive. THe ladies have a week off before making the trip to Burgess Hill on February 25 (1.30pm). THen attention will turn to the quarter finals of the FA Women's Vase, the national knockout competition which pitches Goring side at home against THurrock on March 5. Win that and they could be in with a shout of lifting some silverware at the Olympic stadium in Lee Valley. On the men's side, Chi are in full stride after returning from a lengthy festive break. However, they were unable to follow up a cracking 2-1 win away at the University of Birmingham when they hosted secondplaced Team Bath Buccaneers last Sunday. Andrew Sparshott, Alex Pendle and a Jonathan Orozco penalty corner ensured that Chi went in at the break on level terms. But a solitary strike from the visitors in the second period condemned Chi to a 4-3 defeat. THe result leaves them seventh in the ten team Men's Conference West. Next up for Mark Pacey's side is a long trip to Exeter to face Isca on Sunday (1.30pm) before hosting University of Bristol on February 25.

BRSA Wanderers' Gary Blackwood nailed a maximum as he shot a 28-dart average but his effort failed to stir his side to victory over Hunston Hares in the Friday Benevolent Darts League.

f Chi in action against Tonbridge earlier this season

THE BLUES will be looking to bounce back after suffering a suprising away defeat to relgation-threatened Southend. Rob Lawrence's side went into the match in great form of late, winning five of the last seven to take them away from the drop zone. Despite having chances to win on their first visit to one of the UK's oldest rugby clubs, they came up short - with Southend coming out 21-12 victors. Chi return home to Oaklands Park tomorrow taking on Tonbridge Juddians (2.15pm), who are sitting top in National League THree London and South East division. But, with the visitors only losing once all season, fourth-bottom Chi will face an uphill task to return to winning ways. Speaking after the Southend match, Roger Gould, the club's press secretary, said: "THe

hosts were well organised with a grinding front five and a tall playmaker at inside centre who kicked eleven of their points. "Chichester had a couple of chances to nick it but they were missed and in the end Saxons were worthy winners." After falling behind to two early penalties, a lineout drive put Ben Naiyaga over for the first try to reduce the arrears to 6-5. THe Blues continued to suffer in the scrum and conceded another penalty to go into the break 9-5 down. Chi came back out with fire in their bellies. Another lineout allowed Chris Johnson to break through the defence. He was tackled just short of the try line, but the ball was sent across the backs for Jack Maslen to score left of the posts. THe conversion put Chi 12-9 ahead. But it all went wrong when Naiyaga was sin binned for a high tackle. Two late tries for the home side denied Chi not only the win but also a losing bonus point

Chi make it a sweet 21 unbeaten as the Lillywhites' run continues

f Jess Thomson during the Worthing Half

IT'S A sweet 21 and counting for Chichester City as their unbeaten league run continues. THe Lillywhites currently sit third in the SCFL Premier and last suffered a reverse in the competition at the start of September. Two wins in the last week have taking that remarkable run to beyond a score. A brace from Scott Jones, along with further strikes from Keiran Hartley and Dan Watts helped them to a 4-2 win over Hassocks on Saturday at Oaklands Park. THat was followed up by a 3-0 win away at Newhaven on Tuesday - with goals from Bognor loanee Jimmy Wild, top scorer Jones and Omar Barry sealing the victory. It means Miles Rutherford's side are now within two points of leaders Shoreham, with the Musslemen due to visit Oaklands Park later this month. First up though, THe Lillywhites have a tricky away trip to relegation contenders Wick tomorrow (3pm). Wick are currently in the danger zone and have lost their last two in the league. Chi won the reverse fixture in August at Oaklands Park 3-1.

Tone Zone trio chalk up PBs Pain for Pagham but Pirates soar Ne Tim Ridgway Athletics sport@sussexpost.co.uk JESS THOMSON was the star of the show at the Worthing Half Marathon as the Bognor Tone Zone Runner smashed four minutes off her personal best. THomson was one of 14 members from the club to drive east for the 13 mile race. Cheered on friends, team members and a few hundred strangers, she managed to cross the line in 1:40:45. Also performing well were Claire Baker and Chris Dummer, who both achieved PB's in 2:06 and 1:30 respectively, with Chris also being the first Tone Zoner to finish. For Nicola Kettley (2:17), Lucy Brand (2:26) and David Paige (1:57), Worthing was their first attempt at the half marathon distance. THey all ran very well and completed the course. THe rest of the Tone Zone squad times were as follows: Mark Green (1:40); Andrew Mair (1:41); Simon Bodsworth (1:41); Alan Coombs (1.41);

Tony Holcombe (1:42); Stuart THomson (1:53); Gary Gaskin (2:02); and Paul Wells (2:10). Along the coast in Southsea was the Portsmouth Coastal half marathon, which is normally a slog through mud, hail and sea spray. Fortunately the runners were spared most of that this year. Seven club runners took part with club coach Jackie Williamson leading the way in 1:54 and Neil Pacey just behind, with a personal best. Other finishers were Debbie Pacey (2:02); Paul Stevenson (2:10); Carol Bryant (2:14); Michelle Miles (2:14); and Andrew Miles (2:14). Heading north was Simon Gill who ran in the Wokingham Half Marathon. He is currently midway through training for the Brighton Marathon in eight weeks time, so this would be a good test to see how he was progressing. Simon passed the test with flying colours, keeping a fast and even pace throughout the race to finish in 1:12:14, taking over a minute from his previous best.

brought the scores level with 15 minutes to go. It look like it would stay that way until Dan Sullivan scored his second and Crawley Down's third to end Lions' hopes for silverware. Pagham's woes continued at home to relegation-threatened Peacehaven and Telscombe on Wednesday when they lost 1-0. THe Lions will be hoping to put the bad week behind them tomorrow when they welcome Arundel to Nyetimber Lane (3pm).

f Derek Chester scores for Nyetimber Pirates

In SCFL Division one, Selsey will be looking to make it four wins in a row as they welcome Midhurst to the Bunn Leisure Stadium tomorrow (3pm). THe Blues beat Southwick last week 2-0 thanks to late goals from Joe Manners and Bradley Dean. Elsewhere, both Bosham and Sidlesham will be looking to bounce back after suffering surprise defeats in the semi-finals of the Sussex Intermediate Cup. THe Robins were beaten 3-2 away at Roffey while the Sids conceded a late goal at Cowfold to lose out by the same score line. Tomorrow, Bosham welcome in-form Jarvis Brook to Walton Lane (1.30pm) in the Division Two cup, while Sidlesham return to league action, hosting bottom side Ferring (2pm). West Sussex Premier League side Nyetimber Pirates continue their fine form. Last week saw them beat Angmering 2-1 after extra time in the second round of the centenary cup - Phil Turner and Derek Chester, pictured left, scoring the goals. THey return to league action tomorrow, welcoming Henfield to Bognor Sports Club (2pm). In the same league, Newtown Villa host Wisborough Green while Bognor-based Predators travel to Lavant (both 2pm).

Loulou shows future is bright for Ladies HISTORY has been made at Chichester City Ladies as the club's first ever youth prospect made her debut for the first team. THe Green and Whites have proved to be a force on and off the pitch since their rejuvenation in 2009/10. THe first team currently sit top of the FA Women's Premier League South West division one. And the future off it is looking rosy, too, after 16-year-old Loulou Robson completed her progression from youth team to the top level, during the 3-0 win over Maidenhead United Ladies at the weekend. Caroline Henry Evans, the club's secretary, said: "Loulou started with Chichester City Girls in our first ever youth team at under-13s. As soon as she turned 16 in January, manager

Liam Greenfield signed her to the first team. "For many of the volunteers for the club Sunday was a special moment as it is what we are all working hard to achieve, giving football to girls and ladies in the local area. "We hope she is the first of many to come through our system." Chi's win at Oaklands on Saturday was the second in a week, after they beat Southampton Saints 8-0 on THursday - three goals each for Molly Clark and Charley Wilson-Blakely along with strikes from Jess Lewry and Cherelle Khassal. THat made it 31 goals in four outings without reply for Chi as they went ten points clear at the top of the table. Next is a long trip to Exeter City on Sunday to face a side that are yet to win in the league so far.

f Bognor go close to scoring in the 1-1 draw against Dulwich Hamlet at Nyewood Lane

Howell: 'Blip, what blip? Rocks are ready for a big week ahead' Next Game

Wingate & Finchley (A) TOMORROW | 3pm

Tim Ridgway Football sport@sussexpost.co.uk BOGNOR boss Jamie Howell believes his table-topping side will soon rediscover that winning feeling again. Despite drawing their last two games 1-1, the Rocks are three points clear at the top of the Ryman Premier. With a tricky trip to Wingate and Finchley to come tomorrow (3pm) and then the Sussex Senior Cup semi-final with Crawley Town in Lancing on Tuesday (7.15pm), Bognor have a tough week ahead. But, speaking to the Post, Howell said he had no fears over his team's apparent blip. He said: "I would prefer to be drawing than losing games as it keeps the unbeaten run going. "Some people out there may think it is a blip in form. I would ask is it a blip or does it just even itself out at the end of the season? "Our main aim throughout the season remains and that is playing well. THat will mean winning games people don't expect us to win and occasionally dropping points when people expect us to win." Bognor travel to north west London tomorrow off the back of a hard-fought 1-1 draw with old foes Dulwich Hamlet in front of a crowd of 447 at Nyewood Lane on Saturday.

After falling behind in the first half, Howell pushed more and more players forward as the match wore on - and was rewarded when substitute James Crane equalised with five minutes to go. It means the Rocks go to sixth-placed Wingate having lost just once in 15 games. Howell said: "THe players up for it but we know that Wingate are a good team. "THey played well and got a good result against Folkestone on Tuesday and that's why they are challenging for the playoffs. "THey will be looking forward to bringing that form into the match." Bognor then move on to the semi-final with League Two side Crawley Town at the Sussex FA headquarters in Lancing. Win that and a day out at THe Amex beckons. But there was no suggestion from anyone at Nyewood Lane of prioritising either game over the other. Howell said: "We want to win every game we possibly can. We're in a semi final of a competition and there's no point getting all that way without having the intention to win the whole thing. "We will look forward to both games." Howell has few injury worries for the week ahead. Alex Parsons (foot) is out while Dan Beck (ankle) is a doubt. However, new signing Charlie Moone is fit and available to start.

Moone landing boosts Bognor Tim Ridgway Football sport@sussexpost.co.uk BOGNOR boss Jamie Howell believes striker Charlie Moone landing on the south coast could fire the Rocks to promotion this year. Moone, pictured right, arrives with Ryman Premier pedigree, having won the competition's golden boot when at Hampton and Richmond. Since then, he has taken that goal-scoring pedigree to Slough Town, netting 15 times so far this season. But the arrival of two other strikers saw him slip down the pecking order before being released - then Bognor swooped to snap up the prolific striker. Howell said: "We are delighted to have him. We hope he will deliver for us. He has done so for most his career. "We really need that type of player, someone with experience and quality of his to help out our young strikers like Jimmy Wild and Jimmy Muitt who can't always deliver goals every week. "We are hopeful he will give us more of a chance of scoring goals."

I'M WRITING this a few days after the 1-1 draw against Dulwich. Looking back, the way the game went I think it was a good point. During the first half how we weren't three nil down I do not know. But then in the second I think we did enough to win it. Not for the first time, we gave away an early goal. It's something we need to try and stop as it allows teams to sit back and means we have to chase the match, invariably coming back into it in the second half. If we go in front then we never really allow teams back into it. On a personal note, coming off the bench to get a goal to earn us a point was nice - especially as it was against Dulwich who have caused us lots of heartaches in the playoffs in the past. THat's nine now for the season for me. Playing left back and being the third top scorer at the club, I can't really complain about that. In terms of being on the bench, I'm a little gutted not to be playing, particularly as we have the best defence in the league and are top of the league. It is a hard one to take. But at this stage of the season I have to put personal feelings to one side and do what's best for the team. Tomorrow we travel to Wingate which will be a big one. It is always a nice pitch which will suit the way we play. THe fact they are doing well means they are going to come out all guns blazing. THat will make for an expansive game that will be good for us. THen it's Crawley in the Sussex Senior Cup semi final on the 3G at Lancing. THey will probably have an eye on the league and given that we normally do quite well on the artificial surface I hope that we progress. THen it's off to second-place Needham Market. THe state of their pitch and the long distance will be a leveller. But, having played them at home, there is belief in the squad that really that is a game we can win - and we will go

there with every intention to get three points. We are trying not to look too far ahead and taking things one game at a time. It's easy to think that if we had won against Dulwich, Hendon and Grays then we would be ten points clear at the top rather than three. But the beauty of the league where anyone can beat anyone means that every game is winnable THere's no-one like Whitehawk or Margate from few years ago when there was a stand-out club running away with it. I think it is also testament to the character and the mentality within the club that we do not give anyone too much respect and always go out to win. THe singing of Charlie Moone, who has proven he can score goals at both Hampton and Slough, is very much welcomed. It was a blow to lose Elijah Adebayo who has gone back to Fulham, but Charlie is a good signing. One thing that could be our thorn in the side is the lack of goals and I think we are missing an out and out number nine. While Charlie is more of a 'number ten' his record in terms of scoring at this level speaks for itself. THe intent to sign him is impressive. If he comes in and scores 10 or 12 that could be the difference in terms of getting promotion. I should also mention Rocks fan Les Jackson, who we held a minute's silence in memory of before the match against Dulwich. THe flag above the stand was also flown at half mast. A lot of us who have been at Bognor for a while do socialise with the fans, whether it's after the match, or having a chat to them while we are out in Bognor or Chichester. All of us knew Les and it was something that we aware of. I know the squad felt passionately that we reflected his legacy in terms of a decent performance against Dulwich. Craney
