City 'must do more for climate' By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk A NEW report has shown that only eight per cent of people in Chichester commute by public transport. Transport is the biggest source of greenhouse gases in the UK, and emissions continue to grow. Research suggests that to deliver the greenhouse gas reductions needed, car

use will need to be reduced by between 20 per cent and 60 per cent, depending on factors such as the speed of the switch to electric vehicles. THis means the UK should more than double the proportion of journeys by public transport, cycling and walking. Friends of the Earth, an environmental campaigning community, has analysed how different local authority areas across England and Wales are taking action to

cut greenhouse gases. In the report, Chichester also showed only five per cent of people commute by cycling, and 13 per cent walk. Research also showed that 25 per cent of commuter journeys in Chichester could be by bike (assuming good cycling infrastructure, such as segregated cycleways), better walking routes can encourage more journeys on foot and improve health, and six in ten drivers

would shift to public transport if its quality improved. City and district councillor for the Green party, Cllr Sarah Sharp, said: "Our reliance on the private car is a key problem we need to work on, with the county council. "Better and more buses, a vastly improved cycle network and less emphasis on more road building (which only brings more cars) are key." See page three

CANOEIST Sarah Logan has spoken of her disgust at another finding of raw sewage in Pagham Harbour near Sidlesham. Ms Logan said she was appalled at the amount of effluent she saw during her latest outing at the local nature reserve. “THe amount of pollution is appalling,” she said at this year's open meeting held by the harbour's managing organisation, the RSPB. “It is mashed up untreated sewage. “Sidlesham Quay is the filthiest place. It is unbelievably dirty. You have got to be out on it to see it. "It is shocking and quite unbelievable. I have read that Southern Water discharge into the harbour every five weeks. “If they are doing that now, how are they going to cope with all the housing which is being built around the harbour?” She told the Post outside the meeting at the harbour's visitor centre on Friday: “I have lived in Church Norton for nearly 10 years and I can remember how clean the water always was in the harbour and certainly on the beach. “Last year, I went out from the car park and up to Sidlesham Quay and the water was beyond disgusting. “Two weeks ago, I went out and it was the same. I have recently read that Southern Water have been fined £127m for discharging raw sewage. It doesn't seem to have worked. “My point is that, if you do not go out on the water, you do not see it, and I may be nearly the only witness to what is actually happening.” Tim Calloway, the RSPB's former manager for the nature reserve, said Southern Water had been fined for fabricating water quality results to the industry's regulator, Ofwat, for seven

years. “THe Environment Agency (EA) is now investigating Southern Water further. What we are saying, in line with other environmental organisations, is that we expect the EA to hit Southern Water hard and to ensure they have to rectify the problems they have caused. “We are expecting evidence to come forward about this matter. Even if Southern Water have been discharging every five weeks, that might be in line with their licence from the EA. “THe more reports we get of the situation, the more chances of something being done about it. THere will be more pressure to get something done.” Two or three water treatment plants were sited close to the harbour, he said. THe pollution could come from them or By Kelly Wick another source. County councillor for THe Witterings,kelly.wickha Pieter Montyn, said: “I suggest we approach Southern Water quite seriouslyA CHICHE about this. I will also make direct contactawareness e food to the c with them as well.” THe matter could best be dealt with in UKHarves future by a body similar to the Chichesterfood rescu quality exc Harbour water quality group. THis comprised the various councilsoutlets and around the harbour and the watercharge, to ch THe team h company. “It takes time and it needs people, but it isTHe Hornet w something that could be considered here,”some delic he said. “THe water quality there is doingvegetables. THe small t pretty well.” Steve Webster, the RSPB's site manager, said Ms Logan's comments showed more attention to pollution needed to be included in the harbour's proposed management plan. THe Post reported some two years ago Southern Water had discharged raw sewage into the harbour 53 times in five years.

RESIDENTS watched on as eight fire engines attended a blaze at a derelict building on Saturday. THe fire, near Drove Lane, Earnley, started shortly before 1pm, with crews from Midhurst, Haywards Heath, Littlehampton, Bognor Regis, Chichester, Havant and Emsworth fighting the fire. A spokesperson for West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service said: "We received a call shortly before 1pm on Saturday, October 5, to report a fire in a derelict building in Earnley. "Eight fire engines attended the scene, along with one aerial ladder platform, two water carriers and the incident command unit from Haywards Heath. "Our colleagues from Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service also sent three fire crews, an aerial ladder platform and a water carrier. "Crews from both services worked

exceptionally well together to quickly control a severe fire in a complex building. "THe incident was scaled back with some officers remaining at the scene to dampen down and identify any hotspots."

Harvest charity cook up treats in the city

News 3

City's average on climate change From page one

f Staff at the stall in Draper's Yard By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk A CHICHESTER charity held an awareness event on Saturday providing food to the city. UKHarvest is a not-for-profit perishable food rescue operation that collects quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to charities. THe team had a stall at Draper's Yard in THe Hornet with chef, Roger, who cooked some delicious meals using rescued vegetables. THe small team work hard to support as

many people as possible. Currently, they send out the equivalent of over 26,000 meals a week to over 100 charities and having such a great reaction from the public inspires them to keep on going. Hugo Williams, volunteer and logistics co-ordinator said: "We hope to be working very closely with Drapers Yard over the rest of the year, so stay tuned for updates! "THis Saturday was one of our classic awareness events, and we also gave a bit of a taste of what we can do when we cook free community meals. "One of the main problems with food

poverty is that it’s hidden, so it’s crucial to engage with the public. "By raising awareness, we’ve moved one step closer to being able to fully engage with the community. We can then target events such as our education programmes to bring about real longterm change." THe group have plenty of opportunities for people to get involved with a huge range of events. During October, UKHarvest are having an event almost every day and there are many more to come as Christmas approaches. To find out more, visit: ukharvest.org. uk/

Friends of the Earth suggests Chichester has a target of 40 per cent of people commuting by public transport, cycling, and walking by 2030. THe group has also suggested that when cars are needed, they should be electric and shared as much as possible. Only seven per cent of commuters shared their car when commuting in the Chichester area. Research published in April stated that the Chichester area had 14 electric vehicle charging points. Cllr Sharp continued: "Chichester District Council has appointed consultants who are working on putting together a network of cycle routes. "But the local cycling and walking infrastructure plan, when finished, will only be a 'sketchy plan' of where we need more routes. "THis needs to be backed by funding into planning these routes in detail and then building them." Friends of the Earth's report also suggested that Chichester area’s performance on climate change was average, compared with other local authority areas.

All local authorities, even the best performing, needed to do much more if climate catastrophe is to be averted. Chichester, particularly, needed to do much better on increasing renewable energy and improving waste recycling. In Chichester, 27 per cent of emissions come from housing, 41 per cent from transport, and 33 per cent are industrial and commercial emissions. THere are different estimates of how fast the UK should reduce greenhouse gas emissions if it’s to do its fair share in combating climate change, ranging from around seven per cent to over 25 per cent per year. Researchers at the Tyndall Centre in Manchester University said Chichester should reduce emissions by at least 14 per cent per year. Only 38 per cent of homes are well insulated in Chichester. THis represented 'a shocking waste of energy, high greenhouse gas emissions and unnecessarily high energy bills'. Upgrading the insulation of 3,291 homes per year within the Chichester area would ensure all homes were properly insulated by 2030, lifting as many people as possible out of fuel poverty.

` No jail sentence A MAN from Chichester who admitted to making, possessing and distributing indecent images of children has avoided a jail sentence. David Reid, 74, of Whyke Close, Chichester, was found with nearly 1,800 indecent images of children, Winchester Crown Court heard, but has been spared jail. A spokesperson for the children’s charity, NSPCC said: "For each of these awful images to be created, a child has been horrifically abused . "Reid has helped to fuel this hideous trade and we hope the rehabilitation he will now receive will lessen the risk of him offending in the future.”

Councillor backs schools support By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk A COUNTY councillor is fighting to save small schools across the district. Cllr Dr Kate O’Kelly for Midhurst is fighting West Sussex County Council to halt and think again before they consult on the future of five schools. In July, the county council confirmed it was considering changes to five rural schools including Compton and Up Marden Primary, Chichester; Rumboldswhyke C of E Infants’ School, Chichester; and Stedham Primary, Midhurst. Cllr O’Kelly requested a call-in so that the decision could be scrutinised publicly. She said: "I am very disappointed that my call-in request was refused. THe grounds for the call-in included the fact that scrutiny of the decision has not taken place in public at the children’s and young people’s services select committee (CYPSSC). "Instead of public scrutiny a member task and finish group was set up which looked at this issue in a private meeting. "THe assessments and criteria published about the five schools prior to CYPSSC were full of inaccuracies. THe consultation is now going ahead, which will lead to deep anxiety and concern from parents, pupils, and teachers and residents of all these communities." THe county councillor has been calling for all options to be considered

before consultation and said that some of these schools had been unfairly included and the future of the schools in these communities was now under threat. As reported in last weeks Chichester Post, Rumboldswhyke C of E Infants’ School, which faces closure, has received support from parents and local residents through a new petition. THe school was inspected earlier this year and received an inadequate rating for overall effectiveness and was told the school had limited options with the possibility of closure. She continued: "Small schools sit at the heart of our communities and are much loved. THe partnership stage of moving towards federation needs more support from the local authority. "Schools should be given more time to make and develop these partnerships rather than be forced into a consultation on its future, which should be a last resort. "THe council appears to have no understanding about the impact of threatening to close a school on the parents, pupils, teachers, governors and the wider community and it is very disappointing that West Sussex County Council have proceeded with the consultation before the debate on small schools and without increased support for federation." Cllr O'Kelly has submitted a motion on the future of small schools to the county council to be debated this month.

A hidden wealth of bravery and top secret life at Abbeyfield Chichester where, in the heart of Chichester, we provide sheltered residential living and help at home to those in later years Abbeyfield Chichester Oakshade, Market Avenue, Chichester, PO19 1JR Tel: 01243 539207 www.abbeyfieldchichester.org THE 75th Anniversary of D-Day commemoration, close at hand in Portsmouth and the Victory in Europe

1st Flying Officer Geer 1945

commemorations across Europe this summer, brought to mind how indebted we are to so many of our past residents and to those now living with us at Abbeyfield Chichester. At our two sheltered accommodation houses here in the city centre we live alongside many folk who, in their later years, carry a life story rich in the experiences of World War Two that most of us are thankful only to hear about second hand. One such resident who lived with us for many years at our smaller Westgate sheltered living house

had been awarded an MBE, something our House Manager and others there were curious about. But Elizabeth was as reticent about this as everything else in her life. Once sitting in the garden with her on a sunny day, I broached the subject. “Oh, I expect that was just for being a good girl in the WRENS in WW11”, came the reply. Being ‘a good girl in the WRENS’ included organising top secret Atlantic convoy escorts, a posting as a cypher officer in Washington DC and appointment as Assistant to Lord Louis Mountbatten, actually standing beside him in Singapore, when he received the surrender from the Japanese General Seishiro in 1945. Many of our residents were busy in WW11; John, with us now for over 11 years, renounced his Medical Studies, a ‘reserved activity’, joined up, was trained as a Flying Officer then posted to Burma. He flew Dakotas delivering army supplies over jungle regions where airstrips were hastily made clearings. Instead of learning about anatomy and diagnoses, life became a constant battle to avoid the Japanese and monstrous tropical monsoons that prevailed in the region. Fred was called up at just 19 and joined the Royal Air Force along with his brother. THere followed 5 eventful often hair raising years with postings in Egypt, Libya, Gaza, Greece and eventually India finding himself in places he had hardly heard of. Margaret

and Meg joined the WRENS. Margery was singled out for Officer Training and began ‘specialist work’ in the AntiAircraft section of the ATS. Joan’s work in aircraft construction was ‘restricted activity’ and she was sworn to secrecy. All we do know is that she had, “A soft spot for Spitfires”! A debt indeed owed to so many of our residents and a very respectful thank you.

Custodial sentence for reckless driver in city By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk

A MAN who drove the wrong way along a road in Chichester and crashed into another car, injuring four people, has been jailed. Tamian Saint also travelled the wrong way around a roundabout seconds before the collision in Oaklands Way, Chichester. He left his Mercedes C320 and fled the scene on foot, making no attempt to check on the welfare of anyone in the Skoda Felicia he crashed into. Four of the five occupants – a man, a woman and two children – were treated for minor injuries at St Richard’s Hospital. THe incident occurred on the evening of December 27, 2018, and Saint evaded police arrest attempts, before eventually handing himself in the next day. THe 27-year-old sales assistant, of Springfield Close, Lavant, was summonsed to appear before Lewes Crown Court on Tuesday, September 24, where he was sentenced to a total of 12 months’ imprisonment for offences of dangerous driving and failing to stop after a road traffic collision. He was also disqualified from driving for 12 months and ordered to pay a £140 victim surcharge. PC Tom Van Der Wee, of the Sussex Roads Policing Unit, said: "Saint drove at dangerously high speeds on the wrong

side of the road in a built-up area before crashing head-on with a family travelling towards him. "He then failed not only in his legal duty to stop at the scene, but also in his moral duty by running away instead of stopping to check if everyone was ok. "Despite being contacted by police shortly after the collision, Saint refused to return to the scene and it was not until later

the following day that he came forward. "THe fact he will be spending the foreseeable future in prison is reflective of the seriousness of the offence and he will now thankfully be off of the roads for quite some time. "I would like to commend the actions of the members of the public – which includes off-duty medical staff from St Richard’s Hospital – who did stop to offer

help to the family and also the members of the public who came forward to assist in our investigation following our witness appeal. With their help, we were able to clearly evidence to the court Saint’s appalling manner of driving. "I would also like to highlight the bravery and perseverance of the family involved in the collision who I know to this day are still affected by what happened."

Students benefit from business clinics STUDENTS from Chichester College are benefiting from a series of exclusive business clinics. THe college has teamed up with Basepoint Business Centre, in Terminus Road, to offer students regular workshops to help them discover more about starting their own businesses. Students will receive advice, support and information from a variety of guest speakers from many different industries. THe first student business clinic took place last month, where Robert Newman, community sales manager at Basepoint, and Derek Irvine, economic development officer at Chichester District Council, discussed the type of support available to young entrepreneurs and start-up businesses in the local area. Jenny Horton was among the students who joined them and said: “It was an extremely valuable and educational session, which helped me understand so much more of the business side of starting my own business up. I’m so glad I attended.” THe clinics are organised by Basepoint and the college’s Enterprise Society, which supports students from across Chichester and Brinsbury

College. Helen Loftus, vice principal at Chichester College, said: “Across the Chichester College Group, our ambition is to ‘change lives through learning’ and this is one example of our commitment to that vision. “We know many of our students may have a long-term ambition to be their own boss and run their own companies, and through these clinics we hope they will be able to discover how they could turn their dreams into reality. “Starting a business isn’t easy and it takes a lot of courage, commitment and determination to take that step, but support is available to them.” Robert added: “It was a real privilege to meet with some of the students from Chichester College. I was extremely impressed with their passion, drive and creativity. "Our expertly-led and interactive workshops are specifically designed to help young entrepreneurs gain the skills and knowledge needed to become successful business owners, whilst letting them know that support is available. We are grateful to Chichester College for the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful initiative, and to the district council for helping to deliver an incredible session.”

Have your say on coastal path By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk PLANS TO improve public access to the coast as part of the England Coast Path were unveiled last THursday by Natural England. THe proposals cover a 48.5-mile stretch of coast between South Hayling in Hampshire and East Head in West Sussex. Natural England aims to improve and link up existing access routes, to create a continuous signposted walking route around the estuary system of Chichester Harbour for the first time. THis route completes the proposed England Coast Path route around Hayling Island, building upon plans put forward for the west side of the island as part of the Portsmouth to South Hayling stretch. Chichester Harbour is a rich haven for wildlife, particularly for the common seal and a wide variety of bird species. THe path provides walkers with great views of coastal wildlife, habitats and maritime pursuits, passing through remote and tranquil areas, in addition to some historic urban and rural communities. THe proposed route also invites walkers to use a ferry crossing between Bosham and Itchenor, which provides a unique perspective of Chichester Harbour. THere is now a period of eight weeks for the public to have their say on the

England Coast Path proposals. If approved, this route will become part of the England Coast Path – the 2,700 mile long distance walking route and England’s newest national trail currently being developed around the entire English coast by Natural England. Launching the plans, Andrew Smith, Natural England’s area manager for Hampshire, said: "We have had discussions with many landowners and key organisations along the proposed route. "Over the next eight weeks, we are inviting all organisations, farmers, local residents, visitors and businesses to have their say. It’s important that all responses are taken into account and we look forward to hearing people’s views." Anyone can have their say about the report during the eight-week period. Owners and occupiers of affected land can make objections about the report on specified grounds, which will be considered by a planning inspector before the Secretary of State makes a final decision. All representations and objections must be received by Natural England no later than midnight on THursday, November 28. Copies of the reports can be viewed in local libraries.

New therapy project is launched TUPPENNY Barn's Nurture in Nature horticulture therapy project is set to blossom after receiving a grant of £14,220 from the Postcode Local Trust. THe grant, funded by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery, enabled the Southbourne-based educational charity to expand their therapy gardening initiative, beginning with the launch of a recruitment drive to coincide with World Mental Health Day yesterday (THursday). "In addition to being able to increase the numbers of people accessing our sessions, the grant will ensure we are able to support more people in our community who suffer with their physical, mental and emotional health," said Sonia Rasbery, who runs the project. "We started the horticultural therapy project here in January, 2018, and have seen a satisfying but limited take-up of places. THis funding will make the initiative more visible to those in the local community who would benefit from the service." In addition to launching the recruitment drive on World Mental

Health Day, Tuppenny Barn also increased its community liaison activities with local charities and groups that have connections with those who may benefit from the project, backed up by an off and online media campaign.

Driver sentenced to jail

f Visitors enjoying the ice rink

Skaters left in cold this year

By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk

CHICHESTER skating enthusiasts could be disappointed this year after last year's operators, S3k Limited have confirmed they will not be returning. THe company that claimed to have 'brought joy to Chi' with their ice skating rink known as 'CHiCE' and held in Priory Park, said they regret not coming back this year but hope to return. Managing director Ed White said in a statement, exclusively to the Chichester Post: "We thoroughly enjoyed bringing joy to Chichester last year with CHiCE and the support we gained from the majority of the community was incredible. "We regret that, although the inaugural year was a resounding success and that we had intended to return, given decreasing high street visitor and footfall

numbers, teamed with some external hurdles outside of our control, it will not be possible for S3K to operate an ice rink in Chichester this year. "We very much hope that we are able to return to Chichester in the future and thank everyone once again for all of their support in 2018." A report requested by members of Chichester District Council's overview and scrutiny committee showed that car parking tickets sold increased by just under 5,000 users for the city's car parks during December, 2018, when compared to the previous December. THis equated to approximately £25,000. S3K Ltd have also confirmed they have accepted an invitation to run the ice rink in Portsmouth this year from Saturday, November, 23.

Call Us Today: 01243 782763 E: Reception@kiwirecruitment.co.uk

A DRIVER who reportedly fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into another car, killing an aspiring actress, has been jailed. Emergency services were called to the A283 at Northchapel, near Petworth, at 5.23pm on July 9, 2018. A blue Peugeot 508, travelling southbound, had failed to negotiate a left-hand bend and crossed into the opposite carriageway where it struck a white Volkswagen Golf head-on. Investigations revealed the Peugeot had been travelling at approximately 43mph in the 30mph zone and no brakes had been applied prior to the collision. A rear seat passenger in the Volkswagen – 16-year-old Rosie Roebuck, from Chiddingfold in Surrey, sustained serious injuries and died the next day. She had been travelling home from a day at the beach with her mother, sister and boyfriend – who were all treated for serious injuries – when the tragic incident occurred. THe Peugeot driver was identified as Daniel Scales, an IT worker, of George V Avenue, Worthing, who also sustained serious injuries and was taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting for treatment. He told witnesses at the scene that he had been driving home from work that day, having left early because he felt tired, and said he must have fallen asleep at the wheel. THe 49-year-old was subsequently interviewed and charged with causing death by dangerous driving. Scales pleaded guilty at Portsmouth Crown Court on Friday, September

20, and was sentenced to 28 months’ imprisonment, of which he must serve a minimum of 14 months. He was also disqualified from driving for 38 months and ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge. His Honour Judge Ashworth, in sentencing, acknowledged Scales’ early guilty plea, his previous good character, and clear and genuine remorse at causing the death of Rosie Roebuck. In a victim impact statement, Rosie’s family added: “We are so proud of what Rosie had achieved in her 16 short years, and of the fun-loving, lifeembracing, go-getting young woman she was. “From the many messages we received, it is clear how well thought of she was and how many lives she touched. "Rosie had an undeniable presence, a stunning smile, and is desperately missed by many, a lot of whom feel lost and alone without her."

Golden days for seasonal celebration at district's rural and history museum By Alicia Denny alicia.denny@sussexpost.co.uk

ALL THE sights, smells and sounds of the season came together at the Weald and Downland Living Museum's Autumn and Countryside Show. Once again, this hugely-popular family event drew crowds to the 40-acre site at Singleton where there were activities and displays marking harvest and its importance to rural people. THe show, on Saturday and Sunday, was also the first time members of the public had been able to find out about the museum's plans to mark its 50th anniversary next year with a major fundraising effort, which was launched last THursday by the museum's ambassador, actor Hugh Bonneville. Before presenting a cheque for ÂŁ5,000 towards the appeal, Hugh told guests at a special reception that it had been an easy decision to agree to support the cause as he had been visiting the museum nearly all his life and it was an amazing place. He said: "It is special, and when I am here I feel an immense calm. It's an opportunity to imagine, re-imagine and reflect - give pause for thought. "It's no coincidence Downton Abbey is number one in the cinema at present. I believe it's a reflection of how we do like to be in touch with the past. "THe museum celebrates and investigates

connecting with the past and there is a general feeling of resurgence in arts and crafts so brilliantly practised here," added Hugh. He officially opened the latest buildings to be re-erected at the museum, Eastwick Park dairy and Newdigate bakehouse, which complement the long-established Lurgashall watermill. Samples of bread and biscuits from the bakehouse were eagerly tried by visitors to the autumn show as were the many artisan food products available in the food village. Apple pressing showed how fruit grown on the site's orchard at Bayleaf farmstead was turned into cider while other examples of home-grown fruit and vegetables were on display in the horticultural marquee. THe museum's gardening team, Chichester Organic Gardening Society and Chichester Beekeepers' Association representatives were also on hand to give advice. Illustrating the age-old annual cycle of farming life, wheat grown on the museum's fields was turned into grain by a steam-powered thresher as spectators were mesmerised by this early example of rural mechanisation. Vintage tractors and heavy horses also had their chance to show visitors how they contributed to harvest. Arena displays throughout the two days included a fascinating insight into

how gun dogs, ferrets and a Harris hawk could work together. A fun dog show, organised by MAD About Dogs, attracted entries for seven classes, including best friend for a child under 12 with a dog. Music from THe FB Pocket Orchestra, THe Courtiers and THe Kites kept feet tapping as stalls were browsed and Fishbourne Mill Morris dancers performed on Sunday. THere was have-a-go archery for adults while children had plenty to interest them, too, with large-scale medieval games by the Mill Pond. As one of the largest events held at the museum each year, the show was the ideal springboard for the museum's golden jubilee celebrations and appeal, which aims to raise ÂŁ2.5m, a sum which will be match-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, to improve access, rebuild and conserve Titchfield Market Hall and establish an endowment fund for the future. Celebrity supporters for 50 Years and Counting include television historian Ruth Goodman, presenters from THe Repair Shop, which is filmed at the museum, and broadcaster and historian Dr Jonathan Foyle.

County leader stands down By Kelly Wickham kelly.wickham@sussexpost.co.uk COUNCILLOR Louise Goldsmith has announced she is to step down after almost ten years as leader of West Sussex County Council. Cllr Goldsmith took the top political job at the council in May, 2010, and during that time spearheaded a number of new initiatives to boost the local economy, to create a more environmentally friendly county, to build strong communities and to increase the number of visitors to West Sussex. THe leader stepped down on the day a damning report into the future of

children’s services was leaked. With the care of the county’s most vulnerable children likely to be taken over by someone else, she apologised in her online blog that the service was a ‘very long way off from being good enough’. Children’s services were rated inadequate by Ofsted in May, with the Department for Education appointing a commissioner to oversee improvements. Despite the council showing early signs of confidence that things were heading in the right direction, the leaked report said an alternative way of delivering the service needed to be found because ‘the corporate conditions

f Cllr Louise Goldsmith

are not conducive to support and sustain genuine improvement’. Cllr Goldsmith said: "I have put my heart and soul into being the leader of a county that I am so proud of. It is has been an honour and a privilege and I have loved every minute of it. "However, it’s important to know when the time is right to take a step back and I want to hand over to a new leader so they can prepare for the next round of elections in good time." During her leadership, Cllr Goldsmith secured economic growth deals with district and borough councils across West Sussex, backed a number of solar energy initiatives, and supported projects that saw thousands of new homes and businesses benefit from superfast broadband. In her final leader’s blog published on Friday, Cllr Goldsmith said: "Making the decision to stand down as leader has been an incredibly hard and emotional one for me. I have loved the job even though sometimes it has been really challenging and difficult. "In those dark times you are very much on your own. I have tried to do my best to promote the council and put our amazing communities at the heart of all the work it does. "I have been so fortunate to have excellent cabinet members and members of my party who have supported me. THey in turn have done so much for their communities and I have been truly inspired by their commitment. "THe county council is made up of staff whose dedication and commitment shines through in so many ways. I thank them for all they do. "In standing down as leader there is going to be a big hole in my life. I will

certainly have more time for other things - gardening, catching up with friends and campaigning on environmental issues to tackle climate change. "I’ll be able to spend more time in my division, do some volunteering and start writing my book. THere’ll be no more of the leader’s blog from me but I will be setting up my own personal one. "My thanks go to all those who have shown me kindness, support and respect and to those who have helped me when I have needed it most over the years. THere are too many to mention individually but thank you once again." Ms Goldsmith will continue to represent residents in her division of Chichester West. It is expected that a new leader will be elected at the next full council meeting on Friday next week.

Pension fight FIFTIES-BORN women in the Chichester and Bognor Regis have vowed to keep on fighting for a better pension. THe Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) members said a court defeat would not mean the end of their campaign against 'unfair moves' by the government to equalise the state pension at 66. THe High Court decision last week followed a judicial review by the Back to 60s pensions campaign group. THe case was backed by WASPI on behalf of its members born between 1950 and 1960. Jill Robertson, the WASPI Bognor & Chichester South Coast Group coordinator, said the outcome was very disappointing. "However, this decision does not cover

the maladministration case which is at the centre of the WASPI campaign. "THe progress of our ongoing maladministration complaints with the Department for Work and Pensions and the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman has been suspended pending this decision," she said. "We know that both bodies will be considering the outcome and taking a decision on whether and how to proceed with our cases. "We will also be taking legal advice on the implications for our mass maladministration complaint." THe group would update its members with further information about its next steps in the campaign for justice for all 1950s-born women, she added.

Brexit laws could change harbour COPING with Brexit will be crucial to the future of Pagham Harbour, its site manager has said. Steve Webster, of the RSPB, said the impact of Britain's departure from the European Union was uncertain on the various environmental laws which protect the local nature reserve. THe wetland which runs from Pagham to Sidlesham is a recognised site under the Ramsar international convention to protect the valuable wildlife habitats around the globe. It is also a site of special scientific interest and a special protection area because of the range of species which live there. But Mr Webster said it was unknown how much difference the UK being outside of the EU would make. THe RSPB had been told the relevant laws would carry on but no-one knew how the situation would develop. “It's all very well having the legislation but it needs teeth and it needs funding,” he told the reserve's annual open meeting with the community last week. THe meeting was told by a West Sussex County Council officer the authority had been informed that leaving Europe would affect 80 per cent of the work of the government's Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. “THat makes it even more important that the community stands up and says about the harbour,” said Mr Webster. “It is essential that we engage with local communities and local parish councils.” THe RSPB is preparing a new management plan for the harbour to

take effect from next March in its role as the manager of the local nature reserve for the county council. Its current plan was extended after it expired two years ago to enable upgrading of the harbour's visitor facilities to be completed. THe latest draft of its replacement includes the objective to maintain the present permanent wet and dry grasslands and to ensure the vegetative shingle survives. THe plan also seeks to ensure the harbour can continue to thrive among the increased housebuilding which is proposed nearby in Pagham. Mr Webster showed how the number of visitors to the harbour had grown from 12,000 in 2016 to 15,000 this year. THey were all very satisfied or satisfied with their time there. THe RSPB was proud of the harbour's success in rare little terns using an island for nesting. THis year had seen 21 nesting pairs with 13 fledged chicks compared to 13 pairs and 11 chicks in 2016. “Pagham is one of the best breeding sites on the south coast for them,” he said. “We have put in permanent antipredator fence and this has been very successful. “We did some extensions to it last year because we were finding birds nesting outside the area because of the numbers coming in.” Sandwich terns and black-headed gulls were also breeding in the reserve in growing numbers. However, the colony of common terns had declined slightly in the past year, he said.

f Guests at the Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice's anniversary ball

Special occasion helps to keep legal advice available By Kevin Smith kevin.smith@sussexpost.co.uk A 1940s-themed charity ball raised thousands of pounds in aid of a Bognor Regis and Chichester help service. THose who supported the event staged by Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice brought in £3,200 towards its services. THe charity has offered free, impartial, confidential and independent advice nationally since 1939. THis money will be used to help the people of Chichester and Bognor Regis, as well as Littlehampton, access free legal advice. THe service at the Chichester Law

Centre will help to make up for the limited availability of Legal Aid thanks to the help of solicitors in the area. A spokesman for Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice said: "We would like to thank the many local businesses that offered their support for the auction that took place on the night and the excellent raffle prizes." People turn to Arun and Chichester Citizens Advice with all kinds of problems - debt, rent disputes, benefits advice and family breakdowns are among them. THe vital help is available to everyone and is free to smart. "Our advice changes because we are constantly adapting to the challenges

people face, from broadband bills to universal credit," the spokesman added. "Whatever the problem, our amazing staff and volunteers do all they can to help people find their way forward. "We are here for everyone and we will continue to help make things better." THe service is based at East Pallant House in Chichester, Bognor Regis Town Hall and a drop-in service at the Arun Civic Centre in Littlehampton. More volunteers are sought to help the service begin the next 80 years of its history. Anyone interested in helping should visit: arunchichestercab.org.uk/ volunteer/volunteering

FREEZE YOUR FAT AWAY!

FREEZING IS THE NEW ANSWER TO REMOVING STUBBORN BODY FAT! A new answer to the problem of stubborn body fat which diet and exercise can’t shift has come across the Atlantic in the form of cryolipolysis. Now available in the UK, this method of body sculpting is a non-invasive means of removing fat in certain areas by freezing it so that it disappears naturally through excretion, allowing contours to be reshaped once fat has been removed. The treatment, which has to be applied by a fully-trained practitioner using professional equipment, involves controlled application of cooling within the temperature range of -11C to +5C. Fat cells are more easily damaged by cooling than skin cells and cryolipolysis was developed to apply low temperatures to tissue via thermal conduction.

The techniques have been much researched in the USA and declared safe. They have been cleared by the Federal Drugs Agency (FDA) for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental area, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arm. While the process is not fully understood, it appears that fatty tissue cooled below body temperature, but above freezing, undergoes localized cell death (“apoptosis”) followed by

a local inflammatory response that gradually, over the course of several months, results in a reduction of the fatty tissue layer. The procedure begins with a full assessment of the client’s wishes and what can be achieved through a course of treatment. At the first full session, cooling gel and pads are applied to the area, or areas, from where the fat can be removed and when the machine is switched on a specific temperature and length of time will be set - typically about 30-40 minutes for each area. Massage of the treated area helps to relieve any slight side effects such as local redness, bruising and numbness of the skin, all of which subside within a few days. For maximum results, only 2-3 treatments are required to achieve the best re-sculpting of body contours.

CHICHESTER CINEMA AT NEW PARK

October 11-17 RENÉE ZELLWEGER, in Judy, performs miracles playing Judy Garland: singing her heart out, baring her bruised soul and acting with a ferocity that ultimately rises to a state of grace. It’s winter 1968 and Judy’s in Swinging London for a sold-out run at Talk of the Town. But is she ready for the gruelling five week residency including battles with management, musicians and a love affair with Mickey, her next husband in line? Will wit, reminiscence and adoring fans help the ‘world’s greatest entertainer’ to continue to the top of her game? From Spain comes The Candidate, following a politician whose high-class lifestyle, based on an illegal business, threatens to break his party when facts emerge in the media. Antonio de la Torre is magnetic as the man in question at the centre of a web of betrayal in Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s thriller. An existential thriller about loss, trauma, statelessness and historical amnesia, Transit is the latest from the German director Christian Petzold, an electrifying, original filmmaker. When German troops fast approach Paris, Georg escapes to Marseille with documents from an author who has taken his life in fear of his prosecutors. But when he falls in love with the dead author’s wife, things get a little complex. For a mere £2, book a ticket to see Ruby Tuesday’s Bird, to continue the cinema’s 40th anniversary celebrations via landmark films. Bird features the 1940’s jazz great sax player Charlie Parker (Forrest Whittaker) whose troubled life is depicted with heart. Directed by Clint Eastwood. Wallow in the many Performance Events this week: Don Giovanni, Mozart’s masterpiece from the Royal Opera House (Oct 11); Turandot, the dazzling Puccini opera from the Met (Oct 13, 18); One Man, Two Guvnors starring James Corden in one of the funniest National Theatre’s productions (Oct 14); Gaugin from the National Gallery, an

NEW RELEASE

Gemini Man

Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller Screened at Picturedrome Cinema TWO-TIME Academy award-winning filmmaker Ang Lee returns with an innovative action-thriller that uses sophisticated de-ageing visual effects to pit present-day Will Smith against a younger version of himself. Henry Brogan (Will Smith), the greatest assassin of his generation, is done. But his one-time mentor, Clay Verris (Clive Owen) has other ideas. Years earlier, Clay isolated Henry’s DNA and created a clone of his prodigy. And the only way to truly test his creation – a 23-year-old called Junior (also played by Smith, integrating mo-cap for a seamless result) – is to have him murder the original. Facing a much younger and more resilient version of himself, who can also predict his every move, Henry must use every skill borne from 30 years of experience to survive. As cinema skews so heavily to monster carnage and Marvel superheroes, Gemini Man is set to be the most original action franchise of the decade. It’s good to be excited about Will Smith again; now two for the price of one.

Joker

Crime, Drama, Thriller Screened at Picturedrome Cinema DIRECTOR Todd Phillips' original, standalone origin story Joker explores the world of, and according to, Arthur Fleck. Indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, Arthur is a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society, along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability to depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night... but finds that the joke always seems to be on him. He's out of tune with everyone around him, as evidenced by his uncontrollable, inappropriate laughter, which gains momentum as he attempts to contain it, exposing him to further ridicule and even violence. Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he's never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin. Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events. Decidedly dark, deeply unnerving, and undeniably intriguing, this new take on the Joker asks audiences to put on a happy face, but when the curtain drops on this hotly-anticipated and Oscar-tipped offering, Arthur’s psychotic deeds may turn those smiles upside down.

THE scene is set one Summer in La Ciotat, a town near Marseille which used to be prosperous thanks to its huge dockyard but has been in decline since its closure 25 years before. It is in this context of quiet desperation that a writing workshop has been set up to help a group of seven young people integrate into the world of work. Under the guidance of well-known novelist Olivia Dejazet, the participants are asked to write a noir fiction connected with the industrial past of their hometown. Session after session, one of them, a boy named Antoine, stands out. Provocative and aggressive, he gets noticed by his systematic opposition to all, including Olivia. Even more alarming, the story he has devised and that he reads aloud, the cold description of a mass murder seen through the eyes of its perpetrator, proves very disturbing. Antoine understands the killer too well. At this point, Olivia starts experiencing a feeling of attraction repulsion to Antoine.

Starry, starry nights with autumn shows at Planetarium THE magical rural mansion of Stansted House, near Rowlands Castle, is the setting for a murder mystery event this weekend. Imagine being invited to a mysterious country estate by an enigmatic host… with a room of curious guests, your host never appears... the clock is ticking, and you must work as a team to investigate what happened. Well, that is exactly what will happen when you join Torchlight Mysteries. Use your best sleuthing skills to piece together the trail of clues as you make your way around the house, and after you have interrogated the suspects, you will have just one hour to reach your conclusion as tea and coffee are served. THis thrilling team activity can involve families, friends or work colleagues in a group with a prize for the best solution over the weekend. THere are sessions on each evening, at 7.30pm and 9pm, on Friday, October 11 and Saturday, October 12. Tickets at £15 can

be booked at: eventbrite.co.uk and more information is on the Torchlight Mysteries website. Regular musical evenings have been held at Stansted for ten years with the next being on THursday, October 17, at 7.30pm when the house's Music Room will host Jennifer Parker-Lummis in ‘Soprano à La Mode’ with songs and aria by Bach, Puccini, Offenbach, Bobby Darin, Lehrer and THe Rolling Stones. Jennifer started singing at the age of 11 and went on to study classical soprano voice at South Downs College and graduated from THe Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2001. She has written, directed and performed four successful onewoman shows and is a prolific performer giving funny and informative operatic demonstrations at restaurants and to a wide range of groups. Tickets are £10, including interval refreshments, and are available by calling 023 9241 2265 and select option 4.

WITH darker evenings as winter approaches, now's an ideal time to visit the South Downs Planetarium and learn more about the fascinating universe of which we are part. Magnificently-ringed planet Saturn moves into the sunset glow, with, not far behind to the south-west, giant gas planet Jupiter making spectacular viewing, rising steadily throughout autumn in the pre-dawn eastern skies. Autumn Stars, Moon and Planets is the lecture topic tonight (Friday) at 7.30pm. THe 45-minute show will

be repeated on October 20, at 3.30pm, and the 25th, at 7.30pm. You don't have to travel to the Arctic Circle to experience the Northern Lights because the phenomenon is recreated at the planetarium where the audience can also understand how eruptions on the sun cause the displays and how these are visible from the ground as faint glows, coloured arcs or, at their most spectacular, coloured rays and bands of auroral light dancing back and forth across the night sky. THese shows are at the Kingsham Road, Chichester (PO19 8AE) site, next to Chichester High School, on Friday, October 18, at 7.30pm, and Sunday, October 27, at 3.30pm. Voyage to Saturn, Lord of the Rings is the topic on Sunday, October 13, at 3.30pm. Admission price for all shows are £7 for adults, £5 for children6-16. Visit: southdowns.org.uk to book and for other details about the Planetarium and space centre.

Iconic folk icon Julie is an inspiration EVERYONE thinks she's British but in fact she was born in the USA although she's lived over here since the 1960s. Iconic folk singer Julie Felix was among the vanguard of the new folk music movement nearly six decades ago but like many of her contemporaries she's still performing today. On Saturday, October 19, she appears at Emsworth Baptist Church as part of the current WemsFest Music Season. Artistic director Mark Ringwood explained: "Julie arrived in the UK in 1964 and became the first solo folk performer when she signed to a major label, Decca, that same year. She was the first folk singer to sell-out the 5,000-seat Royal Albert Hall and became the resident singer on BBCTV's 'THe Frost Report', hosted by the late David Frost. "She went on to host several TV shows and had chart success with 'If I Could' and 'Going to the Zoo' and simply fell in love with England and never wanted to return. At the age of 81 she's quite remarkable

Hit musical numbers will raise roof and should be an inspiration to the demographic of the people living in and around Emsworth that life is really worth living." Her Baptist church show starts at 8pm and tickets are available from Bookends, High Street, Emsworth, online at: wegottickets. com, and on the door.

WITH a 26-piece orchestra on stage and a cast of more than 40, BROS Musical Productions will be raising the roof of the Alexandra THeatre next week. Earlier this year, award-winning BROS sold out the theatre with their spectacular version of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ and now they are back with 'THe Sound of Musicals'. From show-stopping solos to rousing ensemble numbers, this show is packed with some of the biggest numbers from the West End and Broadway. It will feature songs from hit musicals such as ‘Mamma Mia’, ‘Mary Poppins’, ‘Sunset Boulevard’, ‘42nd Street’ and ‘Wicked’ – plus new hit shows including ‘Waitress’, ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ and ‘Come From

Away’. THe programme will also be have performances of little known musical theatre gems plus hit songs from movie musicals. As well as talented adults leading the cast, a number of youngsters from Barnham-based Knightstar Productions will be making an important contribution to what promises to be an exciting and enjoyable trip to the theatre. Performances of THe Sound of Musical are from Wednesday, October 16, to Saturday, October 19, each evening at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm. All tickets are £15.50 and can be booked online at: alexandratheatre.co.uk or by calling the box office on 01243 861010.

BRING YOUR GARDEN TO LIFE

OCTOBER is a month of blue skies first frosts and of course glorious autumnal colours. It is the perfect time to tidy up and cut back in the garden. Prune back shrubs and roses. Cut back perennial plants. Remove dead leaves from around base. Perennial plants can be lifted and divided whilst the ground is still warm. Dahlia tubers begonia tubers and gladioli corms can be lifted to store and dry over the winter. Clear away summer bedding and lightly fork to loosen the soil. If you are not going to plant autumn and early spring plants a covering of well rotted manure or bark chips will help to insulate the plant roots and suppress weeds. This month is the ideal time to plant hedges and move shrubs and trees.

Health&Wellbeing

Mindful ways to live your life well. Do you have a thought you would like to share with others?

DENISE KELLY A passionate and motivated 'health expert/nutritionist.

Prevention is better than cure www.denisekelly.co.uk Tel: 07730671436 Email: denise@thewellbeingcompanyltd. com PLEASE don’t quote me on this, as I heard it in the background on the radio one day when I got in the car this week, and you know what it’s like when you are half listening, but also concentrating on your destination! THe gist of the conversation was that they were talking about a woman who had lived until she was 112, and a few years ago in an interview she was asked what her secret to longevity was. She had no ailments or illness at that time. Apparently, her reply was that she had eaten an egg every day of her life since being a child and had a small tipple every night! Is there something in this? Or was it simply that she had good genes? Who knows why one of us is more likely than another to get a certain disease, if at

all? However, one of the biggest health challenges we face today is Alzheimer's disease and apparently the number of sufferers is going to grow at an alarming rate over the coming years if we don’t try and do something about it. Alzheimer's, and similar conditions such as Parkinson's and dementia, are extremely complex neurodegenerative diseases with a wide range of causes. Over the past few years, as research grows, we are fast learning that diet and lifestyle plays a massive role in the prevention and progression of Alzheimer's disease (even earning it the nickname "type 3 diabetes"). It is one nutrient in particular, called choline, which appears to be attracting much attention in being linked to play a crucial role in preventing the neurological changes that occur with these particular diseases. Choline is needed to produce acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter for memory, mood,

EGGS contain 147mg of choline in one large egg with yolk

muscle control, and other brain and nervous system functions. Overactive microglia (glial cell) are a key factor in many neurodegenerative diseases and have been connected to the common symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. Choline also helps prevent Alzheimer's in another way as well by blocking the production of amyloid-beta plaques, which are considered the hallmark pathology observed in Alzheimer's disease. THese two actions could also be helpful for treating other conditions such as traumatic brain injuries, Parkinson's, and multiple sclerosis. THe current recommended daily intake for choline is 425 mg/day for adult women and 550 mg/day for adult men. But the question is, are those numbers high enough to prevent the neurological

changes that occur with Alzheimer's disease, especially in women? To get more choline, you can either regularly consume more choline-rich foods or add a supplement to your daily diet. So how much choline should you take? In studies up to 4.5 times the RDI, (which is still well below the tolerable upper limit and the amount that can begin to cause side effects), have been taken, showing some positive results. (Please check with your GP if you have any concerns, or think this supplement would be good for you). But if we are just to simply up our intake of choline rich foods, what would they be? 1. Eggs contain 147 mg in one large egg with yolk. (So maybe there was something in the woman's daily egg eating!)

2. Grass-fed beef steak contains 55 mg per 3 oz. 3. Wheat germ contains 51 mg per 1 oz. 4. Milk contains 38 mg per 8 oz. 5. Brussels sprouts contain 32 mg per ½ cup. If those aren't on your "favourite foods list”, then don’t despair! You can use a supplement as mentioned. Supplements typically take the form of choline bitartrate and choline chloride, which are available at most health foods shops, and online, and they are reasonably priced. Alzheimer's has so much to do with nutrition and lifestyle, and the more things that are discovered, the better it could be, giving those who are at risk for Alzheimer's an action step that's simple and inexpensive to implement. It’s got to be worth a try.

CommunityNews&Views ROTARY CLUB OF CHICHESTER

CELEBRATING 10

0 YEA

RS

By David Rigglesford, president of the Rotary Club of Chichester THE ROTARY Club of Chichester is celebrating its centenary during the current year ending June, 2020, and it is my privilege to be president at this time. At our more formal events, I wear a chain of office which names all of those who have been president of the club since 1920, a daunting (and heavy!) list of many of the great and good of Chichester. In spite of our longevity, or perhaps because of it, many people are unaware of what Rotary is about, and what we have done for the city. Many of you will perhaps have seen us in our yellow tabards, clutching collection buckets and smiling in anticipation of a donation to local or global good causes, often at the Cross or elsewhere in the city, particularly during the Christmas period. In this and future articles I hope to give you an insight into our aims and achievements, and to give an idea of where your money actually goes. Ours is the oldest of three Rotary clubs now serving Chichester, and was formed in the aftermath of the First World War, a war in which over 350 men from Chichester gave their lives for their country, and many more suffered life-changing injuries. THe impact on family and social life in Chichester must have been enormous, and it was some of the associated issues that the club decided to tackle in its early years. Chichester Rotary Club’s very first project was to raise funds for a memorial to those from the city who died in the war, which was originally placed at the end of East Street, but was moved to Litten Gardens in 1940. THe war memorial is the site of the annual Remembrance Day Service, and this year our Rotary Club, in conjunction with Chichester City Council, will be placing a statue of Lance Corporal Maurice Patten, at the War Memorial, accompanied by an information board. THe statue, created by local sculptor Vincent Gray, was first exhibited in the Guildhall at last year’s Priory Park 100 celebrations and attracted much favourable comment. Maurice Patten was from Eartham, and his statue will stand as a symbol of remembrance of all the local soldiers who died in the Great War. We are very happy to be able to provide a permanent home for the statue for all to enjoy and to reflect on the debt owed to him and his colleagues. THere will be a short unveiling ceremony at the War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday in November, in the presence of relatives of Maurice Patten. Next month I will be writing about the Rotary Club’s second major project, the establishment of the Chichester Boy’s Club, which will be celebrating its centenary very soon, and has always been (and still is) strongly supported by our club.

RUNNING with a dog can significantly improve a workout more so than going it alone, according to scientists. A study by the University of Chichester examined whether runners showed enhanced physical and emotional experiences when accompanied by their canine. THe findings revealed that exercising with a dog boosted the effect of feeling energised, leaving significantly greater stamina and, most of all, vigour - compared to going it alone. Study leader Dr Sarah Edmunds, a sport and exercise psychologist from the University of Chichester, said: "Despite nearly a quarter of adults in the UK owning a dog, there has been very little research investigating the role dogs play in their owners’ motivation for exercise. "THis is the first study which has looked specifically at the impact of running with dogs on their owner’s exercise experience. Results show that our participants exercised at the same intensity both with and without their dog and they experienced a psychological benefit from running with their dog."

COVERS Timber & Builders Merchants in Chichester will be sponsoring the Ovation Rock Show for the fourth consecutive year. THe show, which is organised by the charity Ovation Music, will take place at the Minerva THeatre in Chichester on January 10 and 11, 2020. It will showcase the musical talent of children and young people from across the district and provides them with an opportunity to come together and perform.

THe university study, conducted with pet food brand Canagan, revealed that negative moods like depression, anger, and fatigue decreased following the runs. It is also possible to maintain the same exercise intensity when running with your dog as without, according to Dr Edmunds, as activity is a feasible way to build exercise into both you and your pet’s routine. Emotional connection with our dogs helps us go the distance. Owners who participated in the doggy study felt that the prospect of running with their animals gave them the motivation to get up and go – turning “good intentions” into “action”. THey also reported feeling satisfied knowing that they are doing an activity their pet enjoys – and that the feeling of companionship makes the activity itself more enjoyable. Exercising with a dog has been proven to improve cardiovascular health, leading owners to a more physically active lifestyle. For more about Dr Sarah Edmunds and her research, visit: chi.ac.uk/staff/dr-sarahedmunds

A CHICHESTER school has said it was a real honour to welcome back the Stradivarius Piano Trio for the third year running. THe Stradivarius Piano Trio are a world class musical act consisting of Andrew Bernadi, Jonathan Few and Maria Marchant and visited the Great Ballard school in Eartham. Andrew Bernardi plays a stradivarius violin - a unique and beautiful violin worth millions of pounds. As part of the Shipley Arts Festival, the trio put on an evening performance at Eartham House and on the same day, treated Great Ballard pupils to their very own concert. Andrew, Jonathan and Maria played some beautiful pieces and pupils helped Andrew to 'paint a musical picture' after they listened to an extract from 'THe Lark Ascending' by Vaughan Williams. THey described blue skies, birds tweeting, an oak tree, and a rainbow in the distance. Eva, head of school, stood up and thanked the trio on behalf of everyone and with three cheers to end, it was a wonderful occasion. A few pupils stayed to speak to the trio and Rosie played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on Jonathan's cello. Discover more at: greatballard.co.uk

TINWOOD ESTATE has welcomed two rescued Tawny Owls who will make the vineyard their home. THe owls were rescued by Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital before being moved to a purpose-built home in Tinwood's vineyards. After one of the owners volunteered at the hospital earlier this year Tinwood offered to provide a home for Brent Lodge's rescued animals to recuperate. Over the coming weeks, the owls will continue to recover at the vineyard before being re-introduced into the wild later this autumn. It is expected that they will make the woods surrounding the vines their permanent home. THe owls - a male and a female - are juveniles aged around six months old. THey were spotted by dog walkers who noticed that they had fallen from a nest on a footpath near Chichester and were in need of help. THe walkers contacted Brent Lodge, the wildlife hospital in Sidlesham, which rescued the birds. Brent Lodge provides treatment, care and rehabilitation to UK wildlife casualties and orphans from West Sussex and East Hampshire, with the aim to get them fit and healthy for release back into the wild. THe team treat 3,500 wildlife patients each year. Jody Tukker, Tinwood's owner, said: "After volunteering at Brent Lodge earlier this year I was able to see first-hand how important it is for the animals to re-adjust to their natural environment before they are released. "We are delighted to be able to offer these beautiful birds a peaceful short-term home until they are well enough to return to the wild." THe owls have been named Tinnie and Woodie by Tinwood guests. It is hoped that other rescued wildlife can also be rehomed at the vineyard with plans to include hedgehog houses around the vineyard's lodges in the coming months.

Henry Green, managing director of Covers, said: "We are delighted to be supporting this excellent initiative again and helping fledgling musicians to flourish. We are looking forward to seeing the talented children and young people of our community present their show."

Midhurst Grammar School - Part two By Amy Roberts, collections officer at the Novium Museum

f Four rows of Midhurst Grammar School cadets with their headmaster outside the school, 1939. | Pic: West Sussex Records Office AFTER the closure of the school and the earlier problems it had suffered, as discussed in last week’s article, the school buildings were left to continue to decay. THe need for the school was still evident, however, and several unsuccessful attempts were made to raise money to restore and reopen the school. THe dream eventually became a reality and the school did finally reopen on April 12, 1881, as a boy’s day and boarding grammar, servicing ten boys. THe reopening of the school marked the end of Hannam’s original statues, the trustees were replaced by a board of governors and the headmaster was to hold no other positions, and the classical education of the past was replaced by a more broad learning programme. In the latter part of the 19th century and early 20th, numerous improvements were made including a new science laboratory and lecture theatre, an isolation hospital, and two new classrooms. Pupil numbers increased, with 30 pupils in 1903 rising to 73 in 1907, rising again in 1913 to 108. Lord Cowdray gifted Capron House, formerly the town home of the family of Capron, to the school in 1922, which became the school master’s house. THe most well-known of the school's pupils was writer Herbert George Wells. Wells was originally sent to the school to improve his Latin by the chemist in Church Hill to whom he was apprenticed. Although not a formal pupil, Mr Horace Byatt, the school's headmaster at the time, coached Wells in Latin after shop hours. In 1883 Wells left his apprenticeship to become a pupilteacher at the school. Sir Charles Lyell, geologist, was also a notable pupil of the school and attended from 18101815. He later became Professor of Geology at King’s College London. He was knighted in 1848 and created a baronet in 1864 and upon his death was buried in Westminster Abbey.

During the Second World War the school was shared with girls evacuated from London. By 1944, the school was being run by West Sussex County Council. In 1956 the school began accepting girls for the first time. Ten years later, in 1966, the school merged with the Midhurst County Secondary School to form a comprehensive school after pupil numbers had fallen as a result of the opening of the Herbert Shiner Secondary School in Petworth. A few years later, further changes saw the school become an upper school, only accepting pupils from age 13, rather than 11. Younger pupils instead attended either the Midhurst Intermediate School or Petworth’s Herbert Shiner School. In 1997, Lucas House was added to the school, and was extended in 1999. In 2004 the school benefited from new laboratories and facilities within the science department and as a result was subsequently made a specialist science college. In 2006, a new sports complex was added to the site. In February, 2006, the school was put into special measures, having failed an Ofsted inspection. Midhurst Grammar School closed on December 19, 2008, due to a move to revert to a two-tier, rather than three-tier, education system in the area. A closing ceremony took place in the former River Site Hall. Staff and students were joined by prior pupils and staff members. THe head boy and head girl at the time both delivered closing speeches. THe school was replaced by a new academy, Midhurst Rother College, which opened in January, 2009. THe school has gone from strength to strength and in 2013 received an Outstanding Ofsted rating. THis article was compiled using information from Midhurst Grammar School Tercentenary 1672-1972 published by the Tercentenary Committee, Midhurst Grammar School.

In February 2006 the school was put into ‘Special Measures’ having failed an Ofsted inspection.

Bowers next for City in cup CHICHESTER CITY are just one step away from the FA Cup first round after striking late to chalk up a pulsating victory over high ranked Enfield Town in front of a record crowd. Miles Rutherford's side continue to exceed all expectations in their first season at step four of the non-league pyramid. Chi currently sit seventh in the Isthmian South East division with games in hand on sides around them. But it is the FA Cup where they are attracting most attention, winning through to the fourth qualifying round of the competition for the first time in the club's history. A late Lloyd Rowlatt goal was enough to seal victory for City over Isthmian Premier side Enfield in front of a crowd of more than 500 at Oaklands Park. THe result was a major upset against a team who are flying

high in the league above Chi and arrived in Sussex off the back of six successive wins. For long-time followers of football in Chichester, the run is bringing back memories of the 1960/1, when the city's side were defeated 11-0 by Bristol City. Standing in the way of Chi's current crop of players equalling this feat is Isthmian Premier outfit Bowers & Pitsea, who Rutherford's side will visit next Saturday (October 19, 3pm) in a much-anticipated clash. First team coach Danny Potter said, “We would have been delighted with a home tie but we’ll prepare as we have done so far in the competition to see what we can do to put ourselves in the hat for the next round." Despite the gulf in class on paper, Chi proved to be more than a match for Enfield. Both sides spurned chances in each half with the game looking set to go to a replay.

NEXT GAME

f City now head to Essex in the next round But with less than five minutes to go Rowlatt grabbed the winner, his shot ricocheting off a defender after a slick move. Oaklands Park erupted. THere was the odd scare or two in time added on but the hosts, who haven’t conceded now in their last four FA Cup matches, hung on for another memorable victory in this history making run. Of the 368 teams that entered the competition in the extra preliminary round back in August Chi are the only one still left in the competition. THey also bagged more than £17,000 in prize money for the club. But most importantly they are one win away from the first round proper, a feat achieved only once by a Chichester City side. Rutherford's side did not have long to bask in their FA Cup glory. THey returned to action in midweek in the Velocity Trophy, defeating league rivals THree Bridges away 6-2. A hat trick from Josh Clack, a brace from George Cody and a Jamie Horncastle strike earned the win for the club. THe victory means Chi are now unbeaten in five in all competitions ahead of a trip to

Bedfordshire tomorrow (3pm) for the next round of the FA Trophy to play Barton Rovers. And officials at the club believe the result against Enfield will have nothing but a good impact on everyone involved at Oaklands Park Potter said: “THe whole mood is just very positive, from the involvement of the supporters to the way a lot of people at the club behind the scenes came together for the occasion. "All that was a huge advert for what we can do at this football club. "And I think the players stood up and were counted on the pitch as well to highlight just how far we’ve come in the last two to three years to show that we’re now at a stage where we can be competitive and beat some very good sides.â€? --Subject to demand Chichester City will be running at least two coaches to Essex for the Bowers & Pitsea tie. To encourage as many supporters as possible, the decision has been made to subsidise the cost of the coach to allow tickets to be available for just ÂŁ10.

Barton Rovers (A) Tomorrow (Saturday October 12), at 3pm

Blues winless run continues SELSEY will be looking to get their season back on track and end a winless streak of six matches when they host Shoreham tomorrow (3pm). Daren Pearce's Blues side had a good start to the SCFL Division One campaign, losing once in their opening five league matches. But a 4-0 loss to leaders Littlehampton Town a month ago has started a run of half a dozen games with no victory. THis has seen Blues drop to tenth, nine points off a place in the top three. With Pearce keen to get his young side back on track, one of the sides above them - Shoreham - will be visitors to the Bunn Leisure Community Stadium tomorrow. THen in midweek there is a visit to SCFL Premier side Steyning Town in the Peter Bentley Cup on Tuesday (7.45pm), a side who have won their last seven in all competitions which includes a 4-1 win over the Blues in the RUR Cup. First up, though, is Shoreham. THe recently-relegated Musselmen have had an inconsistent start to life back at Step Five but seem to have turned the corner, winning their last two matches. Blues though will be determined to correct their errors of late, a theme which continued

on Saturday when they were defeated 2-0 at Bexhill United. Selsey did not recover from a slow start which saw the Rams go into an early lead through Sammy Bunn before Jack Shonk added a penalty on 20 minutes. Ryan Morey and Max Davies both had good chances to reduce the deficit before

the break but it just was not meant to be for the Blues. Pearce will also be sweating on injuries to Jordan Warren and Davies, both of whom had to come off in the Bexhill defeat.

Lions look for a cup lift after another league loss PAGHAM will be hoping to continue their fine run in knockout competitions in the hope that it will help bolster their struggling league form. THe Lions are currently second-bottom of the SCFL Premier as Bob Paine's young side continue to find their feet. Pagham continued a theme of good performances but without picking up any points last weekend when they were unlucky to lose 1-0 to secondtop Peacehaven & Telscombe. Paine's side will have some respite this weekend, though, when their attention turns to the Peter Bentley Cup with Pagham heading to Eastbourne United (3pm). Knockout competitions seem to have brought out the best in the young Lions so far this term, with three of their four wins coming in cups. To get a positive result Paine will be hoping his side can improve their conversion rate, with ten league matches so far delivering just six goals. THat poor form continued last weekend when Pagham had a prime opportunity to take points off a Peacehaven side who played much of the match with ten men. It was the home side which

started the stronger and Pagham keeper Tom Crook had to make several smart saves to keep them at bay. Peacehaven got what proved to be the winning goal in the 26th minute. Mike Lloyd raced down the right, cut inside and saw his cross deflect off Dylan Jelley, which completely wrong footed the Lions keeper. THe game swung Pagham’s way four minutes later when home defender Scott Marshall was sent off after a studs up knee-high tackle on Jared Rance. Although Lions dominated the game for the rest of the first half, they were unable to cause too much trouble for the home defence. THat continued in the second period as Rance and Chalaye both were denied and Lions - much to their frustration were unable to make their man advantage count --In SCFL Division Two Bosham host Wadhurst United in the Sussex Intermediate Cup tomorrow (3pm) looking to reverse a run of three matches without a win. THe Robins suffered a heavy 7-0 loss to Copthorne last time out in the league.

Sportinbrief î ? Football CHICHESTER CITY Ladies' poor start to the season continued as they were outclassed in a south coast derby against Portsmouth. More than 250 people packed into Oaklands Park for the hotly-anticipated match in the Women's National Southern Premier. With a number of former Chi players lining up in the Pompey blue, it proved to be a feisty encounter played in good spirits. But it was the visitors who prevailed, creating a series of chances on their way to a 4-1 victory. Charmaine True gave Pompey the lead after ten minutes before Becki Bath

doubled it shortly after. Chi pulled one back before the break when captain Megan Fox continued the trend of only scoring spectacular goals. But Pompey wrapped up the three points after the break, former City player Jade Widdows converting a penalty before Rosie McDonnell wrapped up the win. It means Chi remain third bottom in the standings with just one point from their opening seven matches of the season. Sadie Blakely's side now have a week off to regroup before returning to league action at bottom-side Keynsham Ladies on October 27 when they look to break a winless run.

Sportinbrief î ? Darts LEGENDS pair Gary Blackwood & Gary Bryant continued their fine form to lift the Bognor Summer Darts League Divisional One Pairs knockout title. THe duo defeated Lee Franklin & Cliff Prior (Friary 'Z') in the deciding leg at the end of season tournament in Newtown Social Club. THe match started with good scoring on both sides. Prior and Blackwood both hit 140s before the latter took the first leg in 20 darts. Prior hit back to take even things up in leg two. Leg 3 saw another 140 from Prior. Bryant followed with a ton to keep in contention. Another miss from Franklin saw Bryant step up and take a 2-1 lead. Leg 4 saw Blackwood start with 125. A ton from Franklin and a 116 from Blackwood made it close. After misses all round, Prior eventually hit the double to take it to a decider. Leg 5 saw a 135 from Franklin and 140 from Prior, but a 140 from Blackwood kept them close.

î ? Darts LAST year's Summer Darts League Division Two Pairs final saw Adam Judd and Adam Hall take the title. But this year they were opponents as Hall teamed up with his mother Rachel (Aldingbourne Mavericks) while Judd joined Paula Duckett (Aldingbourne Mavericks) to form a good partnership. THe final saw Hall win the bullseye, but they got off to a slow start, which didn't help after a 140 from Judd. Eventually, Rachel Hall hit 124 to catch up, but with only two darts, Duckett hit double top for the leg. Adam Hall hit a 140 and 100 in leg 2, but with his opponents not far behind he hit double top with his first dart, making it one all. Leg 3 saw Adam Hall hit another ton, but Judd and Duckett both hit tons on the trot, with Judd hitting 120 with his next throw. All the players started missing the double, but eventually Rachel Hall hit double 10. Judd hit a ton in leg 4, but eventually Adam Hall hit a 140, then all the players started missing the doubles again. Eventually, Adam Hall hit double 16 to take the match 3-1, and taking the Division 2 Pairs Champions title 2019.

Callum Aldous ran an impressive race to finish fourth overall in 1 hour 25 seconds (1:25) just ahead of team mate Christo Oosthuizen (1:26), who was first in his category. THree ladies from the club finished in the top 10 and 2 were just outside meaning out of the first 12 ladies 5 of them were Tone Zone runners! Kari Mack sped up the Trundle to finish 3rd lady overall with a time of 1 hour 31 minutes while Juliet Stallard recorded a personal best of 1 hour 34 minutes and was third in her category. Jessica THomson was fourth in her category with a 1:38 and not far behind were Sarah Zacal and Carolyn Stapely who finished in 1:42 and 1:44 respectively. Glenn Penfold (1:51) and Natalie Tribe

(1:55) while Lee Hayward made his debut at the distance in an impressive time of 2:07.

Beckenham next as Blues look for a win

f Action from the Greens' 31-21 Wimborne win

Bognor colts make history IT was a momentous day on Sunday as Bognor Colts Academy became the only club in Sussex to field two teams. THe Purples, featuring three sets of twins, sealed a 17-17 draw against Havant, with the Wright brothers both scoring tries. Meanwhile, the Greens continued their unbeaten start to the season with a bonus point victory over a talented and well drilled Wimborne side. Bognor started brightly against the Dorset side as scrum half Alfie Spurle fed Elvis Millen who audaciously chipped the full back before using his express pace to touch down. Charlie Weller, Ethan Teasdale and Fin Glass were bossing the scrum and laying a platform for the backs to attack. Centre Jack Hickman fed Cellan Robinson who passed his opposite number and cut inside the fullback to score. Bognor then took their feet off the pedal, making errors and allowing Wimborne three quick converted tries either side of half time.

Bognor responded. Flankers Harrison Southern and Benjamin Barker acted as the links before Gus Haplik put fellow centre Tyrone Masaki into space. THe flyer stood up the visitors fullback before skating over. Converted and a four point game. Bognor cut down the errors and began to play with more intensity. Spurle sniped and offloaded to Robinson, who took six players over the line to score. Glass and Jamie Foote both carried superbly using footwork and power to suck in defenders. A thrust from Dylan Giles allowed Masaki room to canter over for his second try in the corner. Decarteret again converted to seal the 31-21 win. Coach Tom Spurle was happy with the result but knows there is still much room for improvement. He said: “We are still only playing with intensity for 40 minutes, this will increase as the season moves on. Well done to all the lads.� Bognor travel to Portsmouth on Sunday for their fourth league game.

CHICHESTER RFC welcome newly promoted Beckenham to Oaklands Park tomorrow (3pm) looking to convert positive performances into victories. After five matches in the London One South season, Blues sit seventh after winning two and losing three of their games so far. But, as can so often be the case, the table does not tell the whole truth with Chi rallying to produce battling performances in defeats against London Cornish and leaders Westcombe Park last time out. Chi will have the chance to level up their record tomorrow when they welcome Beckenham to Oaklands. Blues will head into the match as firm favourites as the newly-promoted side have won just once so far. But they will need to tighten up in defence while stopping their slow start to matches which leaves them with lots to do in the second half. THat theme continued against Westcombe Park last weekend as the side coached by former Chi man Rob Lawrence brought their unblemished record to Sussex. THe visitors started the brighter of the two

teams, jumping out to a 19-0 lead before Blues scrum half Harry Seaman got Chi on the board before the break. After a scrappy start to the second half, Chi reduced the lead further when Rhys THompson collected a Shaun Baker chip to touch down. 14-19. Westcombe responded with a try of their own before Blues had the most dominant period of the game. After a series of pick and goes it was Ben Deavall who stretched over the line to dot down. 19-24. Coombe once again hit back, this time with a penalty. With six minutes left the visitors crossed the whitewash for their fifth try of the afternoon to make it 19-34. But Chi continued to push forward and bagged a bonus point when Gingell crossed the line, supported by Wallace and Ben Polhill. 26-34 final score and there was relief for the contingent of Coombe fans when the referee blew the whistle for full time! --Bognor RFC return to league action tomorrow, heading to Millbrook in Hampshire Premiership. THe Purple and Greens, who are eighth in the standings, had a bye week last time out.

Rocks urged to pick up where they left off

as win

Park loss

f Action versus Leatherhead | pics: T McMillan

NEXT GAME

BOGNOR coach Robbie Blake wants his side to pick up where they left off following two fantastic home wins over Haringey Borough and Leatherhead. Rocks had a rare Saturday off last week thanks to their early exit from the FA Cup. THe break probably came at the worst time for the club as, after a difficult start to the Isthmian Premier campaign, the club had started to pick up. Two home wins in four days had lifted the Rocks from the relegation zone into 12th spot after nine games. But crucially the feel of the side had changed, with a more stable defence giving the team confidence that they could attack and get their just rewards. Now the challenge from Rocks manager Jack Pearce and coach Blake is for the squad to keep the good times going at home to Potters Bar Town tomorrow (3pm). Blake said: “We’ve enjoyed a tremendous turnaround in the past two games and we need to try to keep that momentum going on Saturday when we play Potters Bar. "THe two previous results have been so encouraging and for me, one of the most pleasing aspects from both games was the desire of players.

"And the reaction of the supporters who stayed to clap the players off the pitch tells you how pleasing it was for all of us at the club.” Rocks will have a new face between the sticks for tomorrow's match as Reading keeper Myles Roberts joined the club. THe young stopper met up with his new teammates this week for training after standin replacement James Holden switched to Isthmian League South Central Division Bracknell Town. He is expected to make his debut in front of a big home crowd with Bognor backing the Non-League Day celebrations while raising money for Prostate Cancer UK. THe club is offering entry for just £5 for Emergency Services and Armed Forces personnel (ID card required) as well as admitting all under 16s for free. Whyke United Under 9s and Bognor Regis Town Under 9s will act as mascots before the match before taking part in a half-time penalty shoot out. Rocks general manager Simon Cook said: "Non-League Day is a superb way to showcase all that is good about our game and we hope to see as many people come along on the day to back the cause and cheer on the Rocks."

Potters Bar Town (H) Tomorrow (Saturday, October 12), at 3pm

Bognor's frontline start firing IT'S taken two months but finally the Rocks' formidable frontline has started firing. In Dan Smith, Jimmy Muitt and Bradley Lethbridge, Bognor have three forwards who are the envy of many of the sides in Isthmian Premier. It's taken a while but it looks like the trio have now started clicking, bagging seven goals in their last two matches - nearly half the Rocks' total of 15 which have been notched in nine league games so far. THey have a long way to go to match last season's combined total of more than 50 goals scored in all competitions. With tenth placed Potters Bar Two visiting Nyewood Lane tomorrow, Smith, Muitt and Lethbridge will have further success in their sights. If they continue to create as many chances as they did against Haringey and Leatherhead, then few would best against them. However, the Rocks will have to push on without the services of Dan Simmonds, who has left the club in search of first team football. THe former Pagham attacker, who is prolific at SCFL level, signed for the Rocks in the summer. But he hasn't been able to force his way into first team reckoning, save for a few substitute appearances. And rather than spend time on the bench, he has chosen to quit Bognor to pursue his

career elsewhere. Rocks manager Jack Pearce said: "I can perfectly understand Dan's position and in the interests of helping him develop we have agreed for him to move on. "He will be a big asset to any club who signs him. He has come into our club and worked his socks off to get fit and then

shown a great attitude as a squad member. "Unfortunately for Dan, he has had limited first team opportunities and any football person can understand his desire to play every week. "We wish him all the very best for the future and want to thank him for his services to the club."

NYECAMP NEWS by Liam Goodley

THINGS have certainly changed since I last wrote this column a fortnight ago. While there was no football this past weekend, we are certainly in a better place. We made a few additions and seemed to have improved things overnight. Morale has gone up and the team has started to click, gaining two valuable wins. Robbie Blake has been saying for a while now that it was only a matter of signing a few more players. THe competition for places has helped, particularly in defence, where we had no one pushing to get into the team. Against Leatherhead in the 5-1 win we scored some great goals and kept them well away from the goal for most of the game. A few days earlier against Haringey, it's fair to say they did not have a look in while we had more than 30 chances. THat shows that when we attack we can cause some great damage, even to the so called better sides in the division. Going into the Haringey match, people thought we would get a thrashing as the way we were playing up to that point was pretty bad. But the new signings we made have had a big impact, with Joe Hancott a good find, the emergency keeper in James Holden who performed well and Joe Cook, who has been a steadying force THat helped cut out the mistakes and competition for places made the team play better. Scoring first helped, too, and then adding the second at a key point wrapped things up before they could have come back at us. We didn't really let them have a sniff even though they did have some strong forward players. THat carried through

to Leatherhead when we followed it up in style. THe morale among the fans is starting to come back because of it. THe mood is really high and positive and I think we are all hoping for more of the same for the rest of the season. We showed in that match that we have one of the best forward lines in the league. I think if we cut out the mistakes we can start to fight our way up the league It was great to see Dan Smith get on the score sheet. Getting four goals in one match helps anyone build their confidence but breaking the drought is key. If it was up to the management team they would have wanted the game on Saturday. THe week off did not help them keep the momentum going. While I know a lot of Rocks fans went to watch the games at Chichester or Horsham, personally I just chilled out and sent some posters out to promote the club. As I was picking them up, Jack Pearce was at Nyewood Lane and I had a chance to talk to him about Potters Bar. He said it would be a tough match against a physical side and well organised. From memory, I recall us drawing there last season and, while they are not the most creative of sides they know how to grind out results. I hope we can get a result if we keep the form going with Dan banging them in that will instil some confidence in us. We need to get all the points we can at the moment to push us up the table. If we can turn the Nye Camp into a fortress that teams do not enjoy coming to then that will be even better. It's been a while since we had that formidable home record.
