Recycling rate is increased BY KELLY WICKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org A SIX per cent rise in recycling in the city has been recorded in just two years. Since Chichester District Council launched its recycling campaign in 2016, the recycling rate has increased from 39 per cent to 45 per cent. THere has also been a significant
reduction in the amount of household waste, which has fallen by 11 per cent, which equates to 64kg of waste per household. “THis is fantastic news,” said Cllr Roger Barrow, cabinet member for resident services at the district council. “We want to say a huge thank you to our residents for making such a difference and we want to urge them to keep up the good work.
"Our aim is to recycle 50 per cent of waste by 2020 and with everyone’s continued support I think we can achieve this. “We’ve tried to make recycling easier for people and have run various initiatives across the district, and so hopefully people feel as though this has made a real difference. "We are very grateful to the local media, supermarkets and other partners who
have supported us in our efforts. “We also relaunched our garden recycling service. THe garden waste collected not only contributes to our recycling rate, but it is recycled locally into compost. THis has been a huge success. Customers receive a green wheeled bin, which is emptied every two weeks for less than £1 a week when paid by direct debit." See page three

Florence cafe shock closure BY KELLY WICKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org A HEARTBROKEN cafe owner has clashed with the council as she pulled down the shutters on her city cafe on Sunday. In her last statement on Facebook, Jo Millen, owner of Florence Park Cafe, said: “It is with a broken heart that I announce that we will be closing our café forever on Sunday, August 5, 2018. “We have tried really hard to keep our heads above the water. THe cold start to the season followed by extreme hot weather has kept customers away. We don’t blame you, lack of parking, no shade, hot metal play equipment etc. “We have been running at a loss to provide the community with a café and meeting place. Sadly, we have not been supported and Chichester District Council have not renewed our lease with no reason given." However, a district council spokesperson said: "We extended our agreement with the owners of Florence Park Cafe at the end of last year and this runs until October 31, 2018. "THe owners of the cafe have not started discussions with us about arrangements following this time and so we are confused and surprised by their statement. "As far as we are concerned, they are due to trade in the park until at least the end of October. When we renewed their agreement last year we also amended the terms to take account of concerns they raised about trading in the quiet months, and so we have done everything we can to try and be as accommodating as possible. We have spoken to the owners and have reassured them of these facts." THe popular cafe in Florence Road, between Bognor Road and the B2144, had been run by Jo for three years.
Her statement continued: "I would like to thank each and every one of you for your custom, support, stories and surprises along our journey. We will sadly not be here to see the wonderful wheelchair accessible swing be installed that we worked tirelessly to fundraise for. We hope you enjoy it when it finally arrives." Jo has recently opened a new business in THe Arcade, Bognor Regis, called Rainbows. THe shop sells pancakes, milkshakes, waffles and sundaes. Speaking to the Chichester Post, Jo said: "We began selling milkshakes at Florence Park cafe and they were quickly outselling our bacon sarnies. We knew that Bognor Regis didn't have anything like it and saw the opportunity for a more stable business. "We had been looking at THe Arcade for a few years and explored other ideas before opening the cafe in Florence Park. THe units were still available having run the cafe for three years. "We opened on June 5, 2018, and business has been booming! We have benefited enormously from the sunshine this summer and quickly had to recruit more staff to keep up with the number of customers visiting daily." Cllr Jane Kilby, of Chichester City Council, said: "I am really sorry that the owners of the cafe in Florence Park have decided to close. "THe cafe was very popular for many local people of all ages, it was a meeting place and a very friendly environment, THe council and I value the cafe facility in Florence Park and it is something we are keen to retain and will be working together for a cafe to continue." Cllr Les Hixson added: " What a shame this is. All of the east ward councillors will do everything we can to find a good way forward and we are determined to keep this successful shop open as is a big asset to the constituents."

best of their generation to enrich that visitor experience and Amelia will be part of a programme that makes a real difference to those visitors.” Amelia said: “I have always enjoyed hearing stories about the past through the people that lived it, so now given the opportunity to keep the life stories of these fallen soldiers alive is a great privilege. I am really looking forward to a more people-facing role, and to helping families locate the graves of their ancestors. "I believe it is really important, not only for our heritage but for our patrimony, to honour the soldiers that sacrificed their lives for our country and the Commonwealth”

Bosham heroes save drowning therapy dog

f Evie with her rescuers Dylan Tillyard and Alfie Page, safe on dry land
BY KELLY WICKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org TWO YOUNG men from Bosham became heroes last week when they rescued a dog from drowning. Dylan Tillyard and Alfie Page, both 19, went to play football on the meadow in Bosham, when they heard screaming for help. THey rushed over and saw Evie, the Fox Red Labrador struggling and jumped straight in the sea to help. Evie, a Pets as THerapy (PAT) dog, was being walked by owner, Alexandra Hughes when she went for her regular swim.
Alexandra said: "Evie swims most days in the sea but this day, she did not return to the slipway and could not get out the water and panicked. She got in difficulties and drifted away from me trying to pull herself up but there was no land. "I said a prayer and was about to jump in when the two lads appeared from nowhere and dived in to swim out to her and rescued her. "It was very dramatic and I am grateful to them. I am grateful to God and them for saving Evie from drowning and would like to thank them for their bravery and being our heroes!" Ten-year-old Evie, owned by Alexandra Hughes, from Bracklesham, came
runner-up in a national HiLife PAT Dog of the Year award earlier this year. Pets As THerapy is an independently funded charity with more than 5,000 volunteers. Its registered PAT dogs and other pets all provide animal-assisted therapy and bring comfort, smiles and friendship to thousands of people every week. Dylan said: "We were relived Evie was okay. We were also glad Alexandra didn’t jump in, she said she was about to go in and try rescue Evie herself. "We are happy that Evie is okay and no one was hurt. We were just in the right place and the right time, anyone else would’ve done the same!"

"It makes a huge difference because you no longer have to move bags of garden waste to the tip and you’re also making a massive contribution in helping us to recycle waste.” In February, councillors at Chichester District Council agreed on a contaminated recycling bin policy as endorsed by the Waste and Recycling Panel. THe cabinet agreed to grant delegated authority to the Chichester contract services manager to issue fixed penalties of £75 or other notices for waste and waste-receptacle related offences. Contamination occurs when the wrong items are placed in the burgundy recycling bins. When the recycling collected is of poor quality, the whole truck-load can potentially be rejected and sent to landfill which is a more expensive disposal route and adversely affects the environment. It can also impact the amount of recycling support payment received which is based on recycling quality and tonnage. Last month, THe Chichester Post reported how a new contract for the disposal of business waste and recycling for Chichester was approved.
THe new contract from September would see 100 per cent diversion from landfill to be achieved through its energy from waste facility, which not only provides a sustainable solution for non-recyclable waste, it also mitigates against annual increases in landfill tax. West Sussex County Council has also introduced a new permit scheme for the waste and recycling sites with effect from October 1, 2018. West Sussex residents who drive a commercial-type vehicle will need to have a permit to dispose of their household waste at county council recycling sites. To celebrate the increase in recycling, the district council is offering new customers who sign up to its garden recycling service three months free (terms and conditions apply) at: chichester. gov.uk/gardenrecycling and use the promotional code GARDEN186. THe council is also busy planning activities and events with the West Sussex Waste Partnership for Recycle Week 2018, which takes place between September 24 and 30. Residents who want to access further recycling advice and guidance can visit: recycleforwestsussex.org.uk or: chichester.gov.uk/recyclingadvice

` Better pavements IMPROVEMENTS worth £1.5m have been made to West Sussex pavements so far this year. Most of 2018's pavement rebuilding programme has been completed on budget and ahead of schedule. A small fund remains for urgent repairs before the end of next March. Small-scale repairs are being carried out on ten sites around Arun, Mid-Sussex and Crawley districts. A further 20 schemes are ready to be started. Examples include replacing steps with a ramp for improved disabled access and removing areas of uneven slabs. Surface treatment to provide a new walking surface on top of an existing footway has also been carried out along the coastal strip from Aldwick to Southwick. City centre enhancements have taken place in Chichester and more dropped crossing sites are also set to be installed there. County council cabinet member for highways and infrastructure, Cllr Bob Lanzer, said: "We fully appreciate residents care deeply about the condition of pavements, which is why they feature so highly on our priority list." Steve Philips, of the contractor, Balfour Beatty Living Places, said the work would make a positive difference to people's daily lives.

Memorial for city's much loved Trish BY KELLY WICKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org
f Wayne Cranford, Cllr Martyn Bell, Henry Green and Neil Woods
Trish’s jobs included picking mushrooms locally in 1976 and working in Hoopers Florist in South Street in the late 80s. She was also on the committee raising funds for THe Children’s Society. Local people may remember Trish scooting around the town often at speed in her electric wheelchair with her daughter, Sophie, behind her. Trish will be sadly missed in Chichester and by her five children, 16 grandchildren and one great grandchild. THere is a memorial service for Trish on Wednesday, August 15, at 12 noon at St Mary’s Church, East Lavant, Chichester PO18 0AH.
A MUCH loved Chichester resident has passed away at the age of 87. Trish de Watteville sadly died on May 25, 2018, after living in Summersdale since 1969. Trish enjoyed being a city councillor for many years and was deputy mayoress in 1981. During this time she spent a day travelling in many unusual ways carrying a cricket ball. THis included riding an elephant down North Street, sitting in a supermarket trolley, travelling on a hospital bed and a parachute jump. In her younger days Trish loved life in the bustling city of Chichester both with the holiday feel in summer and carols playing from the cathedral at Christmas. She played tennis and squash at THe Lawn Tennis and Squash Club weekly, loved making pottery and always supported local businesses and shops. Trish ran a business in the late 1970s called Kenway Tours, which ran a historic walking tour of the city and a fully guided coach tour of the surrounding areas. f Trish with a cricket ball in a trolley

Roman back in history with Vicus society in Fishbourne BY KELLY WICKHAM email@example.com VISITORS stepped back in time to when Fishbourne Roman Palace was first built by visiting the Vicus encampment to find out more about daily life in Roman Britain. THe Vicus is an historical reenactment society that portrays the Roman invasion of Britain in the 1st century AD, from the initial invasion of Claudius in 43 AD, though the revolt of Boudicca in 60-61 AD to the final battle against Roman rule at Mons Graupius in Scotland in 84 AD. THey portray military and civilian life for both the native iron-age tribes of Britain and the invading Roman Empire. Children and adults alike could watch the soldiers at training and see who fares best in battle – the Celts or the Romans? THere were plenty of activities on offer all weekend, including trying your hand at military drill with the Vicus drill commander, a talk and demonstration of Celtic and Roman weapons and armour and Celts v Romans - pitting the native Britons against the invading Roman army! THere was also a chance for guests to try their hand at Iron Age warrior training and to see what life was like in Britannia at the time of the Roman invasion. Property manager at Fishbourne
Roman Palace, Katrina Burton, said: “Fishbourne Roman Palace hosted two days of exciting historical action bringing together Celts and Romans. "THe aim was to explore what life was like in this area nearly 2,000 years ago with demonstrations of domestic and military skills. "THere were battles between the Celts and Romans, as well as some more harmonious activities for visitors to join in with. It was really exciting to have Celts and Romans at Fishbourne Roman Palace. "THey were important to the history of Sussex and we often compare the differences in their lifestyles and wonder if they were really friends or foes.”

Rebecca Woltenholme obtained a £70,000 funding package from NatWest to purchase the second franchise of the popular Little Street play centres, that create scaled down versions of high streets for children to play and learn. Rebecca spent nine weeks refurbishing the premises in Bognor Road into a fully functioning play town, complete with theatre, beauty salon, supermarket, construction site, medical centre, barn and cafe. THe facility is open for four sessions daily, seven days a week, and also offers exclusive hire for children’s parties. Rebecca, a former aviation industry employee, runs the business and has created six new jobs including a manager, supervisor and part-time assistants who provide support during the play sessions. Once established, Rebecca and her husband, Boris, hope to open a second franchise in the Horsham area. Rebecca said: “THe first week at Little Street Chichester has been fantastic. We
have been overwhelmed with customer demand and the vast majority of the play sessions have been fully booked. "THe feedback from customers has been phenomenal and we have already seen repeat visits from some of our local customers. We have achieved a 5* Facebook rating from 49 independent customer reviews. "As a business owner it has been really satisfying to see the level of engagement of parents and carers while playing with their children. We have a really strong
and passionate team of staff who I can already tell are committed to our purpose of 'awakening imagination' and I am very proud of them and our business.” Tom Barnes, relationship manager at NatWest, said “Our funding has supported a local business and a growing franchise that will be of great value to families in Chichester and the surrounding areas. We look forward to continuing to work with Rebecca and her husband as they establish their business and expand.”

Glorious sunshine, outfits and races with fabulous fun for all the ladies BY KELLY WICKHAM email@example.com THE heatwave continued last week both on and off the racecourse with thousands attending the Qatar Goodwood Festival. Glorious Goodwood, as it's affectionately known as, welcomed thousands of visitors through the gates from Tuesday, July 31, through to Saturday, August 4. THe five-day racing festival kicked off with Stradivarius taking another big stride towards the season's leading stayer award - and an unrelated £1m bonus - when landing Tuesday's £500,000 G1 Qatar Goodwood Cup over two miles. On THursday it was the show-stopping moment for fashion with Ladies Day where hundreds of women turned on the style in lavish dresses and hats. THe day hosted the eighth Magnolia Cup and this year it was in aid of Cancer Research UK. THe women-only, Magnolia Cup riders wore bespoke silks designed by Iranian/ Swedish fashion designer and women's rights activist Morvarid Sahafi. THe 12 inspirational ladies burst through the stalls and raced across the course even though some were not professional jockeys and some of them had not even sat on a horse in their lives
– prior to a few months ago. THis renowned charity event invites riders who are the leading women of business, sport, fashion, medicine and media, to take part in the opening race of Ladies' Day, at one of the most exciting and glamorous horseracing events in the world. From the previous seven runnings, the Magnolia Cup has raised over £1.2 million for charity. Cancer Research UK takes deserved place as Goodwood's charity of choice for 2018. Two of the riders had a strong connection to the charity - Camila Hickish is a cancer survivor who, despite going through chemotherapy during her GCSEs, achieved ten A*s and is now training to be a doctor and Dr Amanda Cross is a cancer researcher at Imperial College London, funded by Cancer Research UK. THe winning rider was Katie Forrest, from Chiddingfold in Surrey. She said: "I can't even put my feelings into words. I owe it all to George Baker and his team, who are the most fantastic group of people. "My dad has cancer, but this will be a big boost for him, and I've raised £10,000 to do this, so to win it as well is insane. I've got so many people to be grateful to, and the horse, Harry Hurricane literally carried me home - I didn't have a clue
what I was doing half the time. "I begged to do this race in March, but the riders had already been selected. THen one dropped out in May and I got my chance to take part. Since then, it has been a whirlwind to get ready for this, but it's been worth it. "I've never done anything like this - just a bit of show-jumping - but everyone at the yard has given me great advice." Frankie Dettori returned to riding on THursday following his six-day ban for careless riding at Newmarket in July. His return saw him ride home to victory on Regal Reality in the Bonhams THoroughbred Stakes and ever the showman, treated racegoers to his trademark flying dismount. He said: "I thought I might have overdone it but Regal Reality has some serious gears. It took him about four or five strides to really get down and race and then he took off." On Friday, female racegoers were encouraged to dress in the signature L’Ormarins pale blue and white, for the chance to win the trip-of-a-lifetime to South Africa. THe prize of a trip for two people to Cape Town was won by Caroline Roberjot, who was selected from a 15-strong lineup of finalists. See page 38

` Roger's new book A CITY man has had a book published containing incidents, anecdotes, interesting people and places that have affected his life in and around Chichester. Roger Berry, a post-war child, has memories of bluebell woods surrounding the city, Spitfires and Hurricanes still being flown with young pilots undergoing their training from Tangmere, cows in the Westgate fields where city once met countryside, and steam trains using the triangle to turn around there. He said: "In the book there is a light-hearted look at the history of Chichester, growing up in and around the area, some old maps that you would not normally find in one publication and a chapter on the West Sussex County Council children’s home that was in St Paul's Road. THe book is only available from Kim's Bookshop in South Street, Chichester, priced £12.99.
` Rise in LazyLawns A CHICHESTER-BASED artifical grass company has reported a 30 per cent increase in enquiries for the month of July year on year, as people look for an alternative way to keep their gardens green. Normally, July is a quieter month for LazyLawn, with enquires taking a dip as the holiday season gets underway. However, this year, the company has been inundated with people wanting to swap their dead lawns for a sunshine-proof LazyLawn.

BBC stars fly to Tangmere BY KELLY WICKHAM firstname.lastname@example.org A UNIQUE opportunity to meet and quiz agents who had undergone training with the wartime secret service, the Special Operations Executive was held on Sunday at the Tangmere Military Aviation Museum. Four 'trainee agents' and one conducting officer from the recent BBC2 documentary series Secret Agent Selection:WW2 were joined by a veteran who had undergone SOE training for real in 1943. THe 21st century volunteers spent a gruelling three weeks of training in northern Scotland, cut off from any trappings of the modern world, while kept under constant surveillance by a selection board of former military instructors. Only six volunteers out of the initial 14 made the grade on a course that closely followed the wartime training procedures and psychological selection tests. THe agents, pictured above right, by the Tangmere control tower, were; Rohini Rajaj - hospital doctor, Debbey Clitheroe - drama teacher, Lizzie Jeffrys -research scientist, Rob Copsey - border force officer and conducting officer Dr Mike Rennie - military psychology expert. Local veteran Fred Bailey, pictured right, who was parachuted into France behind enemy lines in 1944, admitted that the training was very hard and very physically demanding. THe BBC volunteers, ranging in age from early 20s to late 50s, were on duty 18 hours a day and had no idea of what
challenge was planned for them from one day to the next. Open water swimming in full kit or climbing a sheer rock face were two notable exercises that proved particularly challenging, although modern health and safety equipment reduced the risk of death or serious injury. Something that Fred and other real wartime trainees did not have the benefit of. THe modern-day agent trainees were asked how they fitted back into their everyday jobs after filming was completed. Several admitted to having difficulties and joked that they all needed counselling to integrate back to reality. Fred Bailey was posed the same question and remarked he had no trouble at all becoming a civilian again. Perhaps one of the most telling differences between the generations! THe espionage equipment used by SOE agents was also being demonstrated by a local Living History Group, called THe Baker Street Boys. Dressed as members of the French Resistance, they showed visitors the ingenious and deadly devices SOE used to carry out Churchill’s famous order to ‘Set Europe Ablaze'.

Panto fun at theatre is for good cause PRINCE ARTHUR of Bog will be on a mission when a homemade panto is staged in Bognor Regis. The stage royalty is looking to be saved from an awkward marriage in the family show when he gets involved in saving two damsels in distress. Plenty of laughs, well-known songs, toe-tapping dance routines and big surprises for all the family are promised along the way at the Regis Centre on September 7 and 8. Bognor Regis area resident Jason Green, 26, has written the script for Journey To The Magic Sword as he continues his love of involvement in the world of live entertainment and proves his doubters wrong. "It has always been a passion to write and stage a show and to perform on stage since I was two. "My mum was always told that I would never be able to read, write, go to school, make friends and earn an education because of my autism. "All I've ever wanted to do is to prove those who doubted me wrong. "I have since not only gained a national diploma and a degree in musical theatre but I have also written and staged not one but two shows for charity." Profits from Journey To The Magic
Sword will go to the British Heart Foundation. It is being staged by Jason's JWS Productions. He says that, as well as offering opportunities for people to perform, it is fully inclusive to those with disabilities, wherever possible. "We are an all inclusive amateur theatre group and we all stand together as equals," he said. The first show he wrote, performed and solely directed was Once Upon A Time in aid of a prostate cancer charity last year. He added: "I felt that, because the group was so close, and the response from the last show was so huge and received good comments, I decided to write another script indoors on a rainy day. "The script of Journey To The Magic Sword was born and officially completed three days after the last performance of Once Upon A Time." Prince Arthur of Bog has been set up by his mother, Queen Aeriel, to marry the wealthy but annoying Lady Guinevere Of Nor. But Prince Arthur is in love with Bog citizen Annette. To save himself from the marriage, the prince sails to Skull Island to search for The Magic Sword. His journey becomes a mission to free Annette and Queen Aeriel from the villain, Captain Fleshcreep.
` Meningitis signs
f Jason Green (Prince Arthur of Bog) & Samantha Munday (Annette)
TEENAGERS who are due to go to university next month have been urged to be meningitis aware. The Meningitis Now charity is to launch its campaign to stress the importance of teenagers knowing the systems of the potentially fatal condition. It has stated the national Men ACWY vaccine programme does not protect them against all strains of the disease, such as Men B. Teenagers have the second highest risk in the population of contracting meningitis after babies and toddlers. Up to a quarter of students carry the bacteria that can cause the disease, compared to one in ten of the general population. Dr Tom Nutt, chief executive of Meningitis Now, said: "Given this fact, I would urge both parents and young people to learn the signs and symptoms of meningitis and act fast if the suspect it, because vaccinations alone will not protect them against every cause of the disease."

Year of successes is celebrated at meeting NEARLY £300,000 has been raised by an organisation that promotes charities and community groups around Bognor Regis and Chichester. Dozens of the members of Voluntary Action Arun and Chichester attended its latest annual meeting to hear about its work in the past 12 months. Jenny Holmes, VAAC's senior admin and communications worker, said: "It was great to see so many of our member organisations and we loved having them there to help us celebrate another great year at VAAC. "We've worked hard this year, with some challenges, but the feedback from our members has been very positive and we look forward to helping even more groups thrive over the next year." During the meeting, held at Yapton and Ford Village Hall, guests heard about the 135 organisations that VAAC had supported in the past year. This work included the £288,395 VAAC helped them to raise and the 424 new volunteers recruited. Some of the most common ways that VAAC has supported the groups included helping them to govern their organisation according to best practice, enabling them to plan effectively, enabling them to meet their legal obligations and enabling them to move towards being more financially secure. Once the formal part of the meeting about VAAC's work had ended, Graeme Potter, from West Sussex

County Council's public health team, gave an interesting presentation on wellbeing, resilience and strength-based approaches within the voluntary sector. This was very well received. Attendees described it as an 'excellent presentation' and 'very informative'. After this, lunch was served and those present had the chance to chat with the other organisations which were present.

Prom becomes art gallery AN OPEN air chalk art gallery has been created along Bognor Regis seafront. Scores of drawings stretched along the promenade on Wednesday from the bandstand towards the pier in one of the latest Funshine days held by the town council. About 100 children went along in the first of four hours to draw pictures on the seafront and enjoy the bandstand entertainment from Alice and the Queen of Hearts. Two of those enjoying themselves with the sticks of chalk were sisters Rai and Yami Mamdizha, eight. Rai, 11, drew a vivid rainbow, She said: "I'm enjoying this because it's like being at a proper seaside. There are so many good activities. "I like art. This is good because when you use chalk on the ground, instead of paper, it becomes brighter and brings out more colour."
Her mother, Susan Mamdizha, 48, from Surrey, who was with her husband, Muno Mamdizha, 38, said: "This is entertaining. It's encouraging people to keep busy instead of just sitting on the beach." The pavement art and playing out session was followed by indoor Punch & Judy shows. More activities are planned for Tuesday to Thursday next week. Mujishans the Bubbleman will be first and a Caribbean drumming workshop will take place on Wednesday. Kirsten Fitzpatrick, the council's events organiser, said: "This is the sixth year of the Funshine days and they have proved as popular as ever. It's all about giving children something to do in the summer holidays." Initial sessions included the ever-popular donkey rides and Malcolm the Magician, with some 200-300 children for each show.

Cyclists raise cash for DreamBuilding hospice f A member of the West Sussex grass cutting team in action
Grass verge cuts stopped in heat EXTREME summer heat which has turned grass brown has led West Sussex County Council to stop its verge cutting programme. Daily temperatures in the 80s has stopped the grass growing. This has prompted the county council to stop its urban grass cutting timetable for August. Cllr Bob Lanzer, the council's cabinet member for highways and infrastructure, said: "Instead, we will utilise that freed-up resource to tackle areas which might otherwise be overlooked. "Primarily, the focus will be on footpaths in urban areas, known as 'twittens', and cutting back on overgrown vegetation which has been
ALMOST £7,000 has been raised for St Wilfrid’s Hospice's DreamBuilding campaign by a team of cyclists who took on the Dream Wheelers challenge. It took over two days for the team to ride 100 miles through the beautiful, but undulating course in Normandy, France. Open to cyclists of all abilities, they were free to set their own pace and enjoy the evenings at their leisure. Cyclist Pam Wilkinson said: "It's hard to say what the best bit of the trip was. The weather was perfect - cool and sunny. "The organisation and support for riders was impeccable. Spring in Normandy was beautiful, but as ever, the
best bit was probably the people. "We were very much a team - nobody was left out, or left behind. It was a real pleasure to be having so much fun whilst helping to raise money for the new hospice." Another member of the team, Bernie Evans, explained: "I thoroughly enjoyed the Dream Wheelers cycling challenge! The organisation and support team were excellent and the agony of climbing the hills was soon forgotten once we were all together in the evening, enjoying an excellent meal with a compulsory wine to wash it down! "We had only met everyone once
reported as a concern. "The West Sussex highways team will work closely with the contractor to continually monitor the growth and the grass cutting schedule will be resumed when necessary." Two of the grass cutting crews will finish the rural cut and re-visit any areas identified as being missed. The county council cuts urban grass maintained at public expense seven times a year between March and November. No national guidelines exist for grass cutting schedules apart from the need to ensure roads are safe. But five cuts a year are suggested. The county council funds seven cuts in urban areas and three rural cuts.
or twice but the camaraderie was tremendous, with the more experienced cyclists encouraging the less experienced amongst us. "I would certainly encourage anyone to sign up for this event in the future." The team were asked to raise a minimum of £500 each. They all rose to the challenge and went beyond this to raise a total of £6,755.80 collectively. The hospice has to raise at least £15.5 million to create a new modern facility for the community. It is 88.3 per cent of the way there, but still has £1.7m left to go and only nine months in which to do it.

14th & 15th SEPTEMBER 2018 AT CHICHESTER ASSEMBLY ROOM, NORTH STREET
ZEPPELIN & QUEEN TO ROCK CHICHESTER!
TWO GREAT GIGS IN ONE WEEKEND AT THE CHICHESTER ASSEMBLY ROOM, NORTH STREET 14th AND 15th SEPETEMBER
Classic rock lovers in Chihchester will be spoilt for choice when two great live events come to the Chichester Assembly Room, North Street on the weekend of Friday 14th and Saturday 15th September. First up on 14th Spetember are Iron Tyger performing Queen’s greatest hits accompanied by a chamber orchestra. In the traditionally male dominated world of rock n’ roll, Iron Tyger stand out from the crowd as they are fronted by a show stopping female lead vocalist, the amazing Roz Smith who performs powerful versions of Queen’s all-time classics. The evening is even more special as the group are backed by a chamber orchestra as they perform a gala concert of dazzling versions of the all-time Queen classics.
Iron Tyger have gained international fame for The Show Must Go On their album of Queen classics featuring Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions, Under Pressure, The Seven Seas Of Rhye and more. The group were recently awarded with Silver Discs for vinyl sales on Amazon. More awards followed when Classic Rock Network awarded Iron Tyger 2017 single of the year for their highly acclaimed THE MAGIC OF QUEEN LIVE IN CONCERT version of 99 Red Balloons. Roz Smith was rightfully honoured as the judges’ unanimous choice for Best Female Vocalist of 2017. To celebrate the success of the The Show Must Go On… in style, Iron Tyger are performing a gala concert featuring some of Queen’s Greatest Hits accompanied by a chamber ensemble including strings, woodwind and orchestral percussion plus surprise guests. This wonderful concert, is not to be missed by anyone who loves the music of Queen. Band member Marcus Quilter says ‘We worked closely with the London Symphonia to combine their classical orchestration arrangements with the rock n’ roll power of Iron Tyger and the vocals of Roz Smith to give all Queen fans a night to remember. If you prefer to rock with an even harder edge then don’t miss The Zeppelin Experience who roll into Chichester on 15th September for a one-off concert at the Chichester Assembly Room. Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove! Expect to hear all the Led Zeppelin classics performed with real power and passion by the mighty hammer of the gods that is The Zeppelin Experience. Of course, you don’t have to choose between one or other of these great concerts, you could always grab a ticket for both and turn DON’T MISS A GREAT NIGHT your weekend into a mini Knebworth Festival! Be sure to move fast to grab your tickets as demand for these great bands is likely to be very strong! We hope to see you at the Chichester Assembly Room, North Street.

Health & Wellbeing
by Denise Kelly
Hot tips for keeping your cool in current heatwave I AM SO scared to talk about this heat, because this is the best summer ever and I don’t want to take it for granted. We have just had our annual camping trip in Dorset, with our closest family friends and it was amazing. Camping in wall-to-wall sunshine makes everything very pleasant! You can go in the sea, dry off in seconds and even the damp towels dry out in no time at all. Sitting outside in the evenings, the temperature was comfortable and you didn’t need layers of clothing to stay warm. So, while this beautiful weather continues, its good to know there are plenty of things you can do to cool down, such as the use of fans in every room, cold showers, ice packs and clothes in the fridge! (Honestly, try it!) But what can you actually eat to keep you cooler and help protect against sun damage? While foods like broccoli, cantaloupe melon and grapefruit are great for their high water content; there are other foods with some surprising summer health benefits – including protection from the sun’s rays. Here’s my top six cooling and hydrating foods:
Pomegranate: This fruit is extremely rich in antioxidants, ellagic acid and has anti-inflammatory agents, which can help your skin to resist cell damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. Pomegranate has been proven to be beneficial to our health and fighting against ageing and sun-damaged skin. Try to eat two to three fruits a week, either the seeds with natural yoghurt or sprinkled over your salad, or drink a fresh pomegranate juice with ice.
Lettuce: Leafy greens are high in vitamin A and help to protect you from the UV radiation, limit dryness and irritation of your skin. Eat greens twice a day for the best results. I would suggest using spinach as a foundation to your salad as it is rich in betacarotene. Spinach is good, as are mache and arugula which contain a lot of vitamins and minerals.
Carrots are a sun fighting power food
Carrot: Carrots are another sun fighting power food. The beta-carotene in carrots, which the body converts to vitamin A, has been linked to reduce reaction to sunburn. Try to eat a few carrots a day. Cut them in sticks and eat them with guacamole, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids and helps to reduce the risk of sunburn and develop an even skin tone. Dairy products like natural yoghurt also contain a lot of vitamin A. If you are not a fan of carrots you can try other vitamin A food such as liver and other organ meats, eel, root vegetables, fruit, tuna, egg, low fat dairy, mango, kale, apricot, spinach and nettles. Cucumber: Cucumber contains mostly water, which helps your skin to stay hydrated. The vegetable also helps to produce collagen, which is a good anti-cancer property.
from UV-radiation. The vitamin C and the lycopene found in tomatoes help to keep the skin hydrated and fight free radicals. Watermelon: This fruit works just like tomatoes. It is rich in antioxidants, which limit the UV-radiation on your body. It is also full of water so eat three to four slices a day to stay hydrated during the warm summer months. However, don’t over-eat as the sugar may increase the blood sugar levels. Whatever you are doing this summer, staying cool and hydrated can make you feel like you have a whole lot more energy and stamina so you can continue feeling great all summer long. Enjoy!

Tomato: Tomatoes are one of the top sun protection superfoods. All types of tomatoes are full of antioxidants that help to protect your skin

Bargain wines make for a tasty summer offer Martin Lury Our very own bon vivant gets to grips with all the best buys email@example.com
MAJESTIC Warehouses have a rather enticing offer, one ending on Monday, whereby on the purchase of six bottles or more one can save money on awardwinning wines - an offer I found too good to refuse this week, so off I duly headed to Majestic Chichester in hot pursuit of these relative bargains. Most of these wines were available for tasting and my fellow taster was indeed Harry, pictured far right, who seemed to have mislaid his wine guru badge, but luckily not his taste buds! We initially tried a 2017 Olivier Dubois Tourane Sauvignon Blanc on offer at £8.99 and noted refreshing melon overtones, good minerality with a hint of green apple and concluded that this
wine is crisp, well-balanced with good acidity. At an offer price of £9.99, a 2017 Definition Gavi had crisp citrus fruit freshness, hints of lemon rind and almonds and would be an ideal apéritif. For just £8.99, a 2017 Blind River NZ Sauvignon Blanc proved to be gooseberry-packed, fruit forward oozing soft tropical fruit flavours with a lingering after-taste - a lot of bang for your buck! Finally, for £13.49, a 2017 Les Tuilières Sancerre from the hail-ravaged 2017 harvest demonstrated that even in difficult years growers can produce a wine of good quality with citrus, apple and elegant minerality. Harry next unearthed a veritable sparkling gem in the form of a L’Extra Langlois Crémant de Loire Brut on offer at just £10.99. This wine was tickety boo, an effervescent jolly Dee and a much better alternative to Prosecco, given its Champagne feel and dryness. Quite creamy, elegant with a whiff of elderflower, exuding subtle fruit and delicate fizz added to a soft yeasty note from maturation on its lees, this sparkler is unsurprisingly owned and produced by Bollinger and it shows!
Less concentration on reds this week because of the unseasonal heat, I would like to commend the 2017 Léon Perdigal Côtes Du Rhône which, in fact, exceeds its appellation in terms of smoothness and fine red fruit flavours - a good buy at £7.49!
The Definition Malbec on offer at £9.99 is decidedly plummy with smoky fruit and a great barbecue wine, but my favourite red on offer was the 2013 Beronia Rioja Reserva on offer at a lofty £1499 and, having been matured in
mixed French and American oak barrels, has thus complex flavours of wild fruits, chocolate and leather with hints of clove, fine tannins and good length. This silky smooth dry number merits your utmost consideration. Olé!

Community News & Views FOUR out of ten people around Bognor Regis and Chichester are ignoring bowel cancer screening tests. The latest NHS figures show the coastal West Sussex area has one of the highest uptakes of the free examination that has the potential to save lives. But the response rate of 62.76 per cent the third best in Kent, Surrey and Sussex - still means some 38 per cent of residents are not bothering to take part. The NHS bowel cancer screening programme can detect the disease at an early stage in people with no symptoms when it is easier to treat and there is a greater chance of survival. Deborah Alsina, chief executive of Bowel Cancer UK, said: "It's quite simple. Bowel cancer screening saves lives. I would encourage everyone who's over 60 to take the test, and for those who are younger, to encourage their loved ones over 60 to complete it. It could save yours or your loved one's life. "Bowel Cancer UK joined Beating Bowel Cancer to create a future where nobody dies of bowel cancer. "We're determined to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by the disease. "Taking part in screening is the best way to get diagnosed early when treatment is more likely to be successful. Early diagnosis really does save lives." Anyone who is registered with a GP and is aged 60-74 will receive a test in the post every two years. It is carried out at home and comes with step by step instructions. The test looks for hidden blood in poo, which could be an early sign of bowel cancer. Almost 42,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer yearly in the UK. More than 16,000 people die from the condition annually to make it the nation's second biggest cancer killer. The highest uptake of the test is around Horsham at 65.3 per cent and the lowest is 55.2 per cent in Dartford.
CYCLISTS will pedal across the stunning South Downs to raise vital funds for charity. The Pedal For Paws South will return to Canine Partners's regional training centre in Heyshott on September 30. It will see cyclists riding across the South Downs Way to raise money for the assistance dogs which the charity provides. This will be the third staging of the event. Julie Graham, who took part in the first one, said: "The dogs do amazing work and er really do change the lives of people they are partnered with. "Don't worry if you've not done any training as there is a shorter route and a longer route. So, take whichever one you fancy and just give it a go." Dozens of participants are expected to take part in the event to raise vital funds for the charity's work in training dogs who transform the lives of disabled people to boost their confidence and independence. Last year saw more than 100 pedallers take on the routes. The dogs are taught a range of everyday tasks. They include picking up and fetching items, opening doors and dressing a person. They can even help to load and unload a washing machine and can fetch help in an emergency. Bognor Regis resident Kerenza Holman, pictured above, is encouraging people to take part in the ride.

THOUSANDS of young people across Sussex will be protected by a new contract. Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded the five-year deal to provide the community and school aged immunisation service for babies, children and young adults aged up to 19. The contract began at the start of this month and includes vaccinations in schools and clinics across East and West Sussex and Brighton and Hove. Siobhan Melia, pictured above, the trust's chief executive, said: "I am delighted we have been awarded this contract by Public Health England. "We are committed to ensuring that families, babies, children and young adults across Sussex get access to vital immunisations to protect their health. This decision shows the high regard in which this service is held. "It is a testament to the hard
SNOWDROP United took on the challenge of a non–stop, eight hour football challenge at the Arun Sports Arena in aid of the Sussex Snowdrop Trust. Parents, friends and partners of the players watched in astonishment as they battled each other in an indoor pitch. The pace and determination throughout the duration of the challenge was relentless. Di Levantine, chairman of the trust, said: “It is wonderful Max had the vision to use his love of football and friendship and do something positive that will benefit others.
work, passion and dedication of our staff." The trust held the previous contract for the work but this excluded East Sussex. High vaccination rates are key to preventing the spread of infectious diseases and to avoiding health complications. NHS England South East's public health commissioning manager, said: "We're really pleased the trust will be providing the new community and school aged immunisation service across the whole of Sussex. "It is anticipated that this service will particularly help children and young people who have missed their immunisations to access them, which will contribute to an increase in uptake rates." The community trust also runs Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital and employs more than 5,000 staff to provide medical, nursing and therapeutic care to 9,000plus people a day.
"The Sussex Snowdrop Trust is so grateful to their friends and family for the incredible sum of nearly £2,000 raised from this event. "Our Snowdrop nurses and counsellor make a real difference to the lives of children who have a lifethreatening or terminal illness. "Well done to all involved in completing this difficult challenge and the many Arundel businesses who contributed to the raffle. It is through the generosity of community activities such as this that the trust is able to continue.”
HELPING the armed forces has brought the University of Chichester national recognition. The university has been acknowledged by the Ministry of Defence for its commitment to supporting those who sign up to defend this country. Military officials will present the institution with its employer recognition scheme silver award for its backing of reservists, cadets, instructors, veterans and families of service personnel. The award will be given on a ceremony on HMS Victory in Portsmouth in September. It comes just six months after the university was given the MoD's bronze decoration. Deputy vice-chancellor Professor Catherine Harper said staff and students at the university were extremely proud to fly the flag in support of the nation's serving men and women. "It is an honour to be granted this prestigious award in testimony of our dedication and commitment to our armed forces who play an integral role in the safety of our country. "The experience and loyalty that reservists and veterans bring to our institution, through leadership, team ethic and communication skills, is immense. "The University of Chichester is always open to armed forces personnel who want to partner or study with us," she said. The MoD's employer recognition scheme was launched in 2014 and rewards employers with bronze, silver and gold accolades for advocating support for the military. The university was presented with the second tier award after it met specialist criteria and signed the Armed Forces Covenant. The agreement shows its commitment to the men and women, and families, who have served and continue to serve their country. They include the university's employees who serve as reservists, such as Dr Sarah Needham-Black, pictured below, a communications operator with 71 (City of London) Yeomanry Signal Regiment and research fellow at the university's Institute of Sport. She said: "Being a reservist has given me the opportunity to learn new skills, knowledge, and enhance my personal qualities, and now I feel more self-assured. The university is extremely supportive and I've been able to apply many of these skills in both my civilian and military careers." University director of human resources, Lissie Whitaker, said it was proud to have received the recognition.
RURAL crime cost West Sussex nearly £375,000 last year. New figures from NFU Mutual this week showed quad bikes, all-terrain vehicles, tools, machinery and equine equipment were the most sought after items in 2017. Alastair McAloon, NFU Mutual agent in West Sussex, said: "Countryside criminals continue to become more brazen and farmers are now having to continually increase security and adopt new ways of protecting their equipment. "Social media is fast becoming the new eyes and ears of the countryside. By keeping in close touch with neighbours and police through local farmwatch schemes, country people can play a significant role in identifying suspicious activity and bringing thieves to justice. "Fitting gates to prevent easy access to farm yards and drives is one of the most effective measures. "High-tech security such as movement detectors, infra-red cameras and 'geo-fencing', which triggers an alarm if a farm vehicle moves off the premises, can also play a part." The £373,168 cost of crime in the county was a 14.7 per cent fall from the previous year to buck the national trend. Crime figures in NFU Mutual's latest annual rural crime report revealed the UK saw a 13.4 per cent rise in the cost of the offences in 2017. The report also revealed limited police resources and repeat attacks were the biggest fears for people in rural communities. Many were forced to change their lives due to a fear of crime.

The history and future of Brandy Hole Copse By Pat Saunders, Volunteer at the Novium Museum THE HOUSES along Brandy Hole Lane, which runs from the junction of Broyle Road and Lavant Road (westwards to Old Broyle Road), are secluded and set well back. THey were built in the early part of the 20th century. Just north of the lane, running east to west, are earthworks believed to have been constructed in the Late Iron Age around 100BC and it has been estimated to have taken one and a half million hours to do by hand. THese were most likely built to define territories but were also used defensively to repel any attack from northern tribes who were moving southwards. THey are known as the Chichester Entrenchments. By Medieval times, this area was known as East Broyle Copse, being situated on the edge of Old Broyle Common. In the 13th century, the name ‘Broyle’ indicated an enclosed park or woodland that was well stocked with wild boar or deer. It was administered as Royal forest, an area once owned by the Monarch,
as was much of the area north of the city. Maps from the 18th century show that there were gravel workings, with the gravel probably being used for building roads. THe pits or hollows left behind caught the attention of smugglers who were operating in this area towards the end of the 18th century and the early 19th century. In 1881, during the construction of the Chichester to Midhurst railway, a barrel of brandy was found in a cave, said to have been the forgotten loot of local smugglers. THe 1896 and 1912 Ordnance Survey maps are clearly marked with an area labelled “Smugglers Cave”. Nearby to Brandy Hole Lane, an inscribed stone can be found which marks the execution of a number of a particularly vicious group of smugglers, the Hawkhurst Gang. Tried in the Guildhall in Priory Park for the murder of a local shoemaker and customs officer, the smugglers were sentenced to death and hung

in gallows on the Broyle, and a stone was built to record their deaths. THe Chichester to Midhurst railway, which had been opened on July 11, 1881, was closed to passengers in 1935 but sugar, beet and gravel continued to be conveyed into Chichester for many years. Prior to the First World War, there had been plans to build a railway station in this area using this railway line, to service residents of the developing Summersdale estate, but these plans came to nothing. In 1991, all services on this line ceased and the tracks were removed in 1993. Centurion Way, designed by John Grimshaw, opened along the route of the old railway line as a recreational path for walkers and cyclists in 1995. THe route incorporates a picnic area where visitors are greeted by ‘THe Chichester Road Gang’ which is a group of sculptures created out of scrap metal. Either side of the bridge in Brandy Hole Lane is Brandy Hole Copse which covers 15 acres and has three ponds, ‘Brandy Hole’, ‘Willow’ and ‘Cops’. Brandy Hole Pond is fed by a natural spring, whereas both Willow Pond and Cops Pond are man-made, the latter by Royal Military Police based at the Roussillon Barracks. Evidence remains within the Copse of invasion defences taken during the Second World War. Still visible today are elements
of the defensive perimeter built around Chichester including anti-tank traps of various shapes and sizes, which prevented tanks and enemy vehicles being driven through this area. THe mature trees and earthworks in this area also hid 25 Canadian Churchill tanks in 1942. For over 250 years, the sweet chestnut trees in this area have been coppiced. Coppicing is a traditional form of woodland management, where the trees are regularly cut back close to the ground. In 1987, following the Great Storm, a number of trees were blown down and needed to be removed and the damage caused led to the formation of Brandy Hole Copse Conservation Group (now known as the Friends of Brandy Hole Copse). Since 1988 the Friends have conducted guided walks, pond dipping sessions and nature trails. A group known as THe Conservation Volunteers also contribute to the management of the copse at key times of the year and organise activities such as a ‘green gym’ - where people of all abilities can work on conservation tasks at their own pace in the fresh air. Due to the proposed housing development in this area, there are discussions about diverting Centurion Way to make way for an access road. THere are increasing calls for the protection of Brandy Hole Copse as a community asset.

Bognor Regis look to keep winning PostSport run going after narrow Bridges win BOGNOR REGIS are on the hunt for their fourth win in a row as their ascent up the Division Two table continues. Ryan Maskell's side head to third-placed Billingshurst tomorrow (12.30pm) with a top half finish well in their sights. A third consecutive victory was sealed by the narrowest of margins last weekend, when they defeated Three Bridges by just one wicket. Those 30 points lifted Bognor up to sixth in the ten-team division. A further victory tomorrow and Maskell's side will be nearer the top of the table than the bottom. The victory over Three Bridges was built on an excellent bowling display led by West Indian Marquino Mindley. Opening the bowling, he produced a sparkling spell of quick bowling to take 6-30 and contributing to Three Bridges being dismissed for 154. Bognor started their reply well as Maskell (48) and Josh Seward (50) put on 87 for the first wicket. However, a mini-collapse saw them lose eight wickets for 41 runs and left the bottom three batters to guide Bognor home. Number 10 Joel Baker (16) proved to be the hero, hitting the winning runs to seal a nail-
biting victory. Fellow Division Two side Chichester Priory Park face a crunch match against thirdbottom Ansty (12.30pm) as they look to seal their league status for another season. Matthew Geffen's side have won just once in five matches, a run of form which has seen them slip down the table. With four matches to go, Chi are fourth bottom and in need of victory away from home tomorrow. Priory go into the match off a morale boosting draw to high-flying Haywards Heath last weekend. After being set a target of 255, a century from opener Simon Hasted (101) and 72 from number 3 Matthew Bennison put Chi in with a shout. But a flurry of wickets meant that, with the overs ticking down, they were left hanging on and only survived with one wicket in hand. In Division Three West, second-placed Pagham will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they head to leaders Goring tomorrow (12.30pm). Half centuries from Rico Webb (61) and Jack Stannard (52) were not enough to prevent a six-wicket loss to Slinfold last time out.
DARTS: A 132 out-shot from Aldwick Legion's Larry Chant was the highlight of week 12 of the Bognor Summer Darts league. The shot during a comfortable 12-4 victory helped Legion leapfrog over second-place BRSA Ravens and give them a seven leg lead at the top of Division Two. With one match of the season to go, it would take a real implosion in the final match for Chant's side not to take the title. In Division One, The Legends continued an impressive year, outrunning Hunston Hares 12-4 to extend their lead at the top. The leaders in Division Three are QE2 Devils, who suffered a surprise loss to second-placed Newtown Clubbers with Graeme Dutton the star performer for the victors. Here are the results in full:
f Bognor head to Billingshurst tomorrow
f Ryan Maskell's side dismissed Three Bridges for just 154 - but only just made it home with one wicket to spare
Tough trip out east awaits Middleton
f Middleton appeal against Preston Nomads
MIDDLETON CC can play a major part in deciding the Sussex Premier Division title this weekend when they head to in-form Eastbourne. Sean Heather's side have been muchimproved in recent weeks, dragging themselves clear of the drop-zone. A run of three matches undefeated was brought to an end last weekend after a 50-run home loss to Preston Nomads. Only overseas player Mahesh Rawat (71*) showed his true form against the visiting Nomads, who have under-performed this season and currently sit mid-table. But despite the defeat, Middleton are still comfortably above the drop-zone, sitting two spots and more than 60 points above the relegation places. With just four matches of the season to go, Heather's side know that one more victory should be enough to secure their Premier Division status for another season. To secure that win tomorrow, though, at
Saffrons (midday) against an Eastbourne side that has not lost in five, will require Middleton to rip up the form book. Heather will be hoping his side can pick out the positives of a disappointing defeat to Preston Nomads at Sea Lane. After losing the toss, Middleton wasted no time with the ball and reduced the visitors to 56-4 with Russell Talman (3-31) a particular nuisance. But a 154 stand for the fifth wicket between Kashif Ibrahim (71*) and Tim Moses (89) took Nomads to a total of 231 for 6. In reply, Middleton made a solid if not spectacular return. Josh Wood (19), Jack Dawling (25) and Heather (27) laid a strong foundation for the innings. And after the fall of Patrick Colvin (27), the match was hanging in the balance with Middleton at 124-5. But, even with Rawat anchoring the innings, the rest of the side collapsed and the home side lost their last six wickets for 57 runs.

Bears stand in the way of Chi as road to Wembley kicks off
f Stradivarius wins the Goodwood Cup
Stradivarius is a Glorious hit
GOODWOOD bosses have hailed an 'excellent week' as tens of thousands of people flocked to Glorious for the festival. The five-day feast of racing saw some of the finest horses in the world battle it out on the fabled South Downs course. The highlight of the week was a second consecutive Goodwood Cup for John Gosden's Stradivarius. The four-year-old reeled in Torcedor to seal the win on Tuesday to mean its connections are in line for a ÂŁ1m bonus if the horse can win the Lonsdale Cup at next month's Ebor Festival at York. Gosden said: "He got the job done. This is not a track where you want to give a rival too much rope, but all's well that ends well. Congratulations to the second for making it such a fantastic race." Racing also delivered notable victories for Battash (King George), Wild Illusion (Nassau), Lightning Spear (Sussex Stakes) and Cross Counter (Gordon Stakes). The week was rounded off with a win for Gifted Master by a short-head victory in the ÂŁ250,000 Qatar Stewards' Cup. Trainer Hugo Palmer needed
some convincing about the win, saying: "I wasn't sure we'd won until I saw the slow-mo!" Mark Johnston took the leading trainer award with four wins over the five days while Ryan Moore was top jockey. Nearly 100,000 people attended the Chichester course over five days of racing. While that number was down on last year, officials were delighted with the reaction. Alex Eade, general manager of Goodwood Racecourse, said: "We have enjoyed an excellent week, aided by the beautiful weather. "The racing has been superb across all five days, with some brilliant performances from the likes of Battaash, Wild Illusion, Dark Vision and Cross Counter. "Stradivarius winning his second Qatar Goodwood Cup was a major highlight, as was Lightning Spear, a real Goodwood favourite, landing his first Group 1 in the Qatar Sussex Stakes. "The atmosphere across the course has been really relaxed and trouble-free. Racegoers have been giving us some wonderful feedback, with the new Champagne bar being extremely well-received."
f Gifted Master edges the Stewards Cup
CHICHESTER City get their FA Cup campaign underway off the back of two wins from two to start the season. Miles Rutherford's side head to Southern Counties East Premier side Bearsted tomorrow (3pm) in the extra preliminary round of the world's oldest cup competition. Chi will be full of confidence ahead of the trip to Kent after kick-starting their SCFL Premier season with two wins out of two. First was a morale-boosting 2-0 victory over Newhaven at Oaklands last weekend. A penalty from Dave Herbert and debut strike from Tiago Andrade sealed the win for Chi against the only team to do the double over them last season. It could have been more for Rutherford's side with Scott Jones having a goal ruled out for offside and new signing Gicu Iordache spurning a golden opportunity after rounding the goalkeeper. The Romanian made up for it on Tuesday night when he bagged a brace in a 6-0 victory over Hassocks. Scott Jones, Herbert, Jimmy Wild and Rob Hutchings grabbed the other goals. It leaves Chi top of the table and full of confidence ahead of the trip to Maidstone.

Sids stall in Bailey's first game A NEW kit, new logo and a new manager was not enough to inspire Sidlesham to victory on their return to SCFL Division One. After making the short move up the road from Selsey, Steve Bailey's first game at the helm of the Recreation Ground side ended in disappointment as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat against Mile Oak. After two first half strikes for the visitors, a Ben Mepham goal with ten minutes to go gave Sids hope of bagging a point. But, playing in a smart yellow and blue kit with a new logo emblazoned on the shirt, the
young side were unable to find an equaliser. Bailey, though, will be buoyed by what was a positive performance from a young side who have only spent a few weeks playing together. Next up for Sids is a trip to Steyning Town tomorrow (3pm) in the Peter Bentley Cup. Fellow SCFL Division One side Selsey also suffered defeat in their opening match of the season. Manager Daren Pearce, who swapped places with Bailey in the summer, was left to rue missed opportunities as a revamped Blues side lost 2-0 to Southwick at the Bunn
f Sids were defeated 2-1 by Mile Oak
Leisure Community Stadium. In front of a crowd of more than 150, Pearce's side dominated possession but just could not convert their chances in what was a frustrating match for Selsey. Blues will hope a home match against Billingshurst tomorrow (3pm) in the cup will help register the first victory for their new manager. SCFL Division Two side Bosham still have a few weeks yet before their season gets underway. Fixtures released this week have thrown up an opening day trip to Roffey for the Robins and new manager Dennis Hughes on August 18. The delay was because Brighton Electricity FC won an appeal to be included within the division for the coming season. * Chichester City Ladies round off their pre-season preparations this weekend when they welcome Championship side Tottenham Hotspur to Oaklands Park (Sunday, 2pm). Aaron Smith's side kick off their second season playing third-tier women's football when they host Oxford United on August 19 (2pm). Before then, though, the National League South side will welcome a Spurs side who play one league above them and are pushing for a place in the Women's Super League. Chi will hope to put up as good a performance as they did last weekend when they were defeated 2-0 at Lewes.
Pagham pick up where they left off PAGHAM'S perfect start will be put to the test as they take on FA Cup debutants in the extra qualifying round. The Lions have picked up where they left off last season by chalking up two wins from two to begin the SCFL Premier season. A 3-2 success at Peacehaven & Telscombe was followed by a 3-0 victory against Lancing on Tuesday evening. Those six points put Pagham joint top as one of four sides with perfect records and underlined their promotion aspirations for the coming season. Next up is a trip to Aylesford in Kent to play K Sports in the extra qualifying round of the FA Cup (3pm). On paper, the Lions will be firm favourites for the match against a side which is making
its first appearance in the FA Cup. Pagham will also want to keep up their record of making it into the first qualifying round in each of the past four seasons. But they will need to be on their guard as K Sports won their opening match in the Southern Counties East Premier against Erith Town, the side that defeated the Lions in the FA Vase last year. Joint managers Richie Hellen and Tom Simmonds will be looking to their strikers to keep up their good form. Victory at Peacehaven was sealed by goals from George Gaskin, Ryan Davidson and Dan Simmonds. Gaskin, Simmonds and Callum Overton were then on the scoresheet as the rain came down against the Lancers.

Pearce vows Rocks are ready as stage is set for new season Next Game
HARINGEY BORO (A) Tomorrow, 3pm
BOGNOR boss Jack Pearce is confident his side will give a good showing this season as the Bostik Premier season gets underway. After months of hard work rebuilding the squad following relegation from National South, Rocks' campaign starts at White Hart Lane in north London tomorrow against newly-promoted Haringey Borough (3pm). That will be followed by a home match against Surrey-side Merstham under the lights at Nyewood Lane on Tuesday (7.45pm). With a host of young fresh faces, and a new coach alongside him in the dugout in the shape of former Premier League striker Robbie Blake, many would be forgiven for thinking that confidence would be sky-high. But, when asked if there were any targets for the season, Pearce has drily said he hopes the club can avoid relegation. That comment was perhaps said to manage expectations and lift the pressure on what he admits is one of the youngest squads he has put together in many years. Regardless, Rocks fans will be disappointed if they are not at the business end of the table this season. Pearce said: "We're happy with how things are going. "The lads are in good shape and we're looking forward to what's ahead." A host of new faces have come into the club over the summer, including Harvey
Sparks (Worthing), Marley Ridge (Havant & Waterlooville), and Dan Smith and Brad Lethbridge (both Portsmouth). The biggest question that remains is over the Rocks goalkeeping position. Dan Lincoln has held the number one shirt for the past two seasons and impressed many with his shot-stopping ability. But, as with last season, the future of the Berkshire-based stopper has been unclear throughout pre-season as the 23-year-old looks for a club which is closer to his Home Counties base. Lincoln, who has been fitting in training alongside his appearances on the cricket pitch for Middlesex Seconds and Berkshire, did appear between the sticks last Friday in Bognor's last pre-season friendly at Gosport. But, with the Rocks also considering a number of options, at the time of going to press, no announcement had been made about who will appear during the first week of the season. At the other end of the pitch, it seems the new additions will ease the goalscoring crisis of last season, where Bognor netted an average of less than a goal a game in the league. Pompey loanee Smith netted twice in the 3-2 win at Gosport while right back Calvin Davies continued his fine pre-season form by scoring the other.
Thieves target Nyewood Lane NYEWOOD LANE is all set to host the Rocks' first match of the new season - but the club suffered a setback when thieves broke in to the supporters' club shop. The incident took place overnight last Saturday and saw an Acer laptop, Huawei tablet computer and an LG TV taken from the lock-up in the ground. Police were informed and anyone with information is asked to come forward. Supporters were urged to keep an eye out for anything suspicious and advised that any Rocks merchandise being sold was likely to be linked to the break-in. Writing on social media, a club spokesman said: "Although a lot of things have been taken the loss isn't huge as it can all be replaced. It's just a few weeks of not needed hassle getting things back for the new season." Fans have rallied around after being informed of the incident - with reports of a television being carried through the town centre reaching the club. A Rocks spokesman said: "The offers of help and items to replace what was stolen have been amazing and from the bottom of our hearts we thank you all so much for your kind words and assistance."
f Nyewood Lane is ready for the start of the season
WELL, after weeks of waiting we are finally here - tomorrow the Rocks will get their new season underway. It's been a few weeks of hard preparation but I think Bognor are ready for everything the Bostik Premier brings. The final pre-season game against Gosport Borough saw the Rocks finish up 3-2 winners in a relatively even fixture despite the scoreline. I have to say that we took our goals very well and Pompey loanee Dan Smith proved he can find the net after scoring twice in this Hampshire versus Sussex match. Calvin Davies got the other goal and he is proving to be at 100 per cent at the moment which is great momentum going into the new season. It was funny seeing Pat Suraci and Joe Lea back playing for Gosport Borough, who have also brought in Matt Tubbs among others to bolster their line up. Suraci scored a goal as well, hitting one in off the post. Time will tell if we will ever see him back at Bognor. What do other fans think? Be sure to let me know. Talking to their tannoy announcer and press man, it seems that Gosport had a similar season to us last year - not winning many games and struggling to get results at home. Judging by this performance, though, and the players they have brought in, they must be in for a better season this year. Bognor are doing all they can to bolster as well but it seems we can’t really compete with teams with larger budgets, no matter where these players come from Hopefully, as this column goes to print, we have managed to tie down a goalkeeper for the season. I would like it to be Dan Lincoln but I am unsure as I write this whether he has committed or not. Dan can save us 15-20 points in a
season with his shot-stopping ability and commanding presence in the penalty box. I know the fans want him to stay and fingers crossed, he does just that. Others that have impressed me so far are Jimmy Muitt, Doug Tuck and Harvey Sparks. Muitt is looking good out wide on the right and getting the crosses in and, if he chips in with the odd goal, then all the better. With a game Dan Smith, we look like a threat going forward, particularly on the counter. I agree with most that Tuck is more beneficial higher up the field, linking with the likes of Sparks who makes great runs in attack while also backing us up defensively. But Tucky’s tidy play along with Tommy Block helping in defence latching on to loose balls also helps to calm the team at crucial moments. My worry for this season is that the depth is not quite there to deal with injuries or suspensions. But I still believe we will have a better season, despite the fact we have lost some big players in the team. I haven’t seen much of Marley Ridge in midfield so far but hope he has a good season with us. I am on the Rocks on Tour coach trip to Haringey Borough tomorrow and will see you on it if you are going! I hope to go to most away games this season. It would be great to see as many Rocks fans go to away games this season. Haringey is a new club for me. I have never been to the Tottenham neighbours before so it's all very exciting. Congratulations to Harvey Whyte on his captaincy and our new player-columnist for the season. Go get them Harvs! I look forward to reading his views every fortnight and other fans will only echo that I feel. Come on the Bognor boys! Time for us to shine again. UP THE ROCKS
