SUCCESS STORY

Amy lost 5st 7lbs with Ideal Weight

Amy Katori TOTAL WEIGHT LOSS: 5st 7lbs

Before I started following an Ideal Weight plan I felt physically and emotionally restricted in my day to day life. I had no GSRĉHIRGIMRQ]WIPJERH-JIPXXMVIH because I was carrying so much extra weight around with me. I wanted to start living as a 22 year old, wear nice clothes and feel sexy again, so I decided that enough was enough. Ideal Weight appealed to me as it is a structured eating plan; you don’t really have to do much preparation. The nutrition packs are tasty, and the plans are so simple to follow, plus the added support of my coach and group sessions has been invaluable. My coach is great; she is realistic, ĊI\MFPIERH[SVOW[MXLQIXSXEMPSVQ] weight loss journey to suit my lifestyle, like holidays, eating out and working away from home. She is very reassuring and complementary, and she is always there for me whenever I need her. Since losing my weight, I go dancing, [IEVRMGIGPSXLIWERHLIIPWERH-ĉRH

exercising is so much easier, plus I’m dating again! I went on the catwalk at the Ideal Home Show Christmas, something I would never have dreamt of doing before, and I felt like a supermodel!

Turner in Brighton Until 2 March 2014 (Note: closed 19 to 24 January 2014)

Royal Pavilion, Prince Regent Gallery* Admission payable, members free The exhibition celebrates the acquisition of Brighthelmston, Sussex. It shows how Turner and his contemporaries perceived the town at the height of its development as a seaside resort in the 1820s, during the reign of George IV. Loans from national galleries such as Tate, the Victoria and

Albert Museum and private collectors have enabled the exhibition to bring together a range of works by the artist, including watercolours, oil paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, and prints, along with works by John Constable, William Daniell and John Nash

Please note the Prince Regent gallery is on the first floor of the Royal Pavilion and is currently accessed via a staircase.Lift access to the gallery for wheelchair users and visitors with limited mobility can be arranged with advance booking. Please call 03000 290902 to book.

Flighty Friends – Blue Tit The Blue Tit one of our most attractive and most recognisable garden visitors. In winter, family flocks join up with other tits as they search for food. A garden with four or five blue tits at a feeder at any one time may be feeding 20 or more. They are fun to have in the garden, famously skilled at hopping along tree trunks and being able to cling to the outermost branches and hang upside

down when looking for food. The Blue Tit is a valuable destroyer of pests; no species destroys more coccids and aphids, the worst foes of many plants. It also takes leaf miner grubs and green tortrix moths. Although it does not have an entirely clean sheet with gardeners, it is fond of young buds of various trees and may pull them to bits in the hope of finding insects. They readily accept the shelter of a nesting box, returning year after year and when one pair dies another

takes possession. They have an average life expectancy of one-and-a half to three years, although the longest recorded lifespan is 9 years 9 months in the UK. It is estimated by the RSPB that there are 3,535,000 breeding pairs in the UK

LEEK & POTATO SOUP Seasonal Recipe by Valerie Hedgethorne

Valerie Hedgethorne taught cookery & cake decorating for many years in Brighton before becoming a Home Economist. She now writes recipes monthly in Cake Craft & Decoration Magazine & is also a member of the Sussex Branch of the British Sugarcraft Guild. In January I like to give you a recipe for soup to warm you on cold winter days. This one uses the vegetables we have readily available and are not expensive.

Ingredients:

Method: Cut off the roots and coarse green tops from the leeks and wash the leeks thoroughly. Cut a few thin slices from the tops for garnish later if you like. Slice the leeks and chop the onion. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1in (2.5cm) dice. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and cook the leeks, onion and potatoes for a few minutes.

(serves 6)

Add the stock and bay leaf then simmer until the potatoes are soft.

3 medium leeks 1 onion 500g (1lb) potatoes 25g (1oz) butter 750ml (1 ¾ pts) chicken stock 1 bay leaf 5 fl oz (¼ pt) milk

Purée in a liquidiser or with a blender until smooth, add the milk and season to taste.

10 | The Post • t: 01273 299219

Soften the reserved leek slices in a little boiling water then drain them. Serve with this garnish sprinkled on the top and a swirl of cream if you like. Note: In the hot weather this is nice served cold and is then called Vichyssoise. • info@thepostmagazine.co.uk • www.thepostmagazine.co.uk

Grow your own winter salad By Steve Bustin

Eating something you’ve grown yourself is always a joy, but especially now we’re in the depths of winter, when the ground can seem barren. Believe it or not, you can sow, grow and eat a green salad – that seemingly most summery of crops – in the darkest days of the year. You’ll also save your pennies as a packet of seeds costs far less and produces far more salad than one of those tasteless bags of leaves flown in from heaven knows where that are on the supermarket shelves right now. You’re not going to be growing big hearts of cos or iceberg lettuce right now, unfortunately, but there are a few plucky little leaves that will stick their head above the soil to provide a healthy harvest for you. Think ‘micro leaves’, that most chic of menu items, and you’re nearer the mark. You’re also going to need to be growing somewhere sheltered, ideally indoors. Inside a shed window will work (as long as you haven’t got mice doing their worst) but a greenhouse

or conservatory will be even better as lack of light is one of the major problems hindering growth at this time of year. The other issue, of course, is going to be heat, so a windowsill indoors will be good too, as even hardy crops need to be cosseted a bit if you want them to perform at this time of year. Most of us will have grown mustard and cress on damp kitchen towel or tissue at some point in their lives, and these are a great place to start – they germinate quickly, are a tasty addition to a salad or sandwich and you get loads of seeds in a pack so can keep sowing. Other seeds won’t cope with quite such a naked start, preferring the cosiness of a bit of compost to get them going. Use a shallow seed tray or pot to sow your seeds. Any tray with drainage holes will do – the plastic trays that vegetables come in from the supermarket are often perfect and even come with their own little ‘greenhouse’ clear plastic lid! Fill the tray with compost and use it like a miniature

vegetable bed on your windowsill, sowing rows of different crops across the tray. Try sowing wild rocket, kale (it’s a completely different plant when harvested as baby leaves), cavalo nero or

mustard greens, or any of the winter salad mixes available in garden centres. Sow now and you should be able to harvest in 4 to 6 weeks time and don’t forget to keep sowing so you’ve got a steady supply of salad until the days lengthen and the soil warms enough to start sowing summer lettuce outside, normally in April or May here in Brighton.

My favourite winter salad leaf is a pea tip – literally, the first shoot of a pea plant that left unpicked would develop into a plant that will bear pods come early summer. Try planting pea ‘Twinkle’ now, however, and within a few weeks you can enjoy the remarkably strong taste of pea in the bright green leaves. Harvest when about 10cm tall. While you’re enjoying your salad, however, start thinking about next winter and buy a few seeds or swap them at Seedy Sunday. Lambs lettuce, Mizuna and a whole range of leaves can be sown in late summer to enjoy as the weather gets colder and will crop throughout the winter (although it’s too late to sow them now for this year). A little planning now and sowing in summer will give you an even more varied salad bowl next winter. Steve Bustin is Chair of Seedy Sunday. The community seed swap event takes place at the Corn Exchange on Sunday 2nd February. See seedysunday.org for details.

Pooches on the Prom Seafront at 11a.m., Sunday 19th

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are invited to raise money for patient care. The walk will start at Hove Lawns Café and go to the Pier and back, or, for pooches who like a longer walk to the end of Madeira Drive and back - depending on how energetic the dogs and their owners are feeling. All the pooches taking part will be rewarded at the end with a doggy-bag treat and a medal. Registration is just £5 per dog, although all the pooches taking part are being asked to raise as much sponsorship as possible. Every penny raised will help provide vital end of life care for patients and their families. The Martlets Hospice cares for over one thousand people a year and as it is not funded by the NHS it is necessary to raise £8000 a day. To be part of the Hospice’s first ever sponsored dog walk, visit: www.themartlets.org.uk, contact Clem on 01273 747455 or email clem@themartletshospice.co.uk 14 | The Post • t: 01273 299219

A life of stories to tell? A poignant newspaper article made film-maker Paul Desmond take stock of what he was attempting to achieve with his fledgling video biography business, Your Life Story Video. The writer had recalled her deeply felt regret at missing out on the opportunity of knowing more about her family history because of her elderly father’s vascular dementia. She explained that whereas she had always enjoyed a close mother-and-daughter relationship, her father’s reserved nature had made it much more difficult to get to know him. Then a sudden marked decline in her father’s mental health meant that his many life experiences and stories were lost forever or, at best, muddled in the telling. Paul said: “This article brought home to me the importance of asking questions about our family histories when we can, sadly something that so many of us don’t do until it’s too late.” “By simply recording in whatever format that’s

available the stories of our dear ones’ and ourselves, we can ensure that these precious memories will be preserved for future generations to enjoy.” Paul’s preferred recording format is a high definition digital camera. He had won many awards as an amateur film maker at national and international level before he turned his passion into a profession. He said: “For years I focused my camera on people’s life stories and their personal experiences and this has enabled me to combine this knowledge and skill when making video biographies. “My approach is to keep the experience uncomplicated, relaxed and above all enjoyable. I come to video biographies from a background in journalism, spanning more than 20 years, in which I encouraged people to tell me their story in a friendly conversational style.” Paul likes to build a relationship with his subjects before ever switching on his camera. A few weeks before filming he will meet the person and discuss with them the topics they want to cover and advise how best to illustrate them with photos from family albums, old home movies or old documents and family tree research. Only then does he set up the film session, which is usually held in the comfort of the person’s home. Paul then spends many hours editing the footage and integrating the photographs and other material into the finished film, which is copied to DVD. “My aim is to bring visually to life the people and the places my clients have fondly remembered,” he said. (Panel Quote) “Preserving the life stories of our closest relatives is a priceless gift one generation bestows upon another” – Dorothy M Shapiro, Philanthropist 1921-2012

Children liberated from Auschwitz on the 27th January 1945. It is estimated that at a minimum 1.3 million people were deported to Auschwitz and its satellite camps between 1940 and 1945; of these, at least 1.1 million were murdered.

Monday 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day and this year the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust have taken as their theme ‘journeys’: how the experience of people who suffered in the Holocaust under Nazi persecution is characterised by forced journeys - journeys often undertaken in terror and ending in death, but also journeys that ended in survival, new lives and new homes. January 1945 was certainly a time of such journeys. As Soviet forces approached Auschwitz, in south-west Poland, the SS began evacuating the inmates, forcing nearly 60,000 to march hundreds of miles west to camps in Germany. For some prisoners this presented a chance, however slim, of survival, but for those 20 | The Post • t: 01273 299219

who dropped behind or could not continue it meant death; shot and killed wherever they stumbled or fell. Those considered too weak to even begin this nightmare journey were left behind in Auschwitz and approximately 7,000 people, the majority of them Jewish, were liberated by the Red Army on the 27th January 1945. The fate of all of these survivors is not recorded, but we do know that the dangers were far from over for the liberated Jews. For those who set out from Auschwitz, freedom brought many hazards. Some arrived in the UK, and some chose to end their journeys in Brighton and Hove. Here the survivors joined a Jewish community

there were enough Jews to warrant the foundation of a synagogue. This was located at the southern end of Jew Street, a street where David Spector, in his article ‘The Jews of Brighton, 1770-1900’, believes the local Jewish peddlers were probably based.

Jew Street, Brighton. Many leading Jewish personalities have been honoured by having both road and buses names after them – here are just a few examples Goldsmid Road, Palmeira Square/Avenue/Mews, Holland Road, Lansdowne Road/Place/Street, Somerhill Road/Avenue, Nizells Avenue/Lane, Davigdor Road, Julian Road, Osmond Road/Gardens, Montefiore Road, Lyndhurst Road.

changed by war. In 1939 Jewish evacuees had come to Brighton from London. Refugees fleeing the storms of Hitler’s hatred had also arrived, some from as far away as Shanghai. There were losses too. One Jewish family was bombed in Norfolk Square, and the Roll of Honour at Middle Street synagogue shows that thirty Jewish servicemen died, half of them serving in the RAF. The number of family members caught up in the pan-European madness cannot be guessed at, nor the sense of overwhelming calamity Brighton’s Jewry must have felt, but normal Jewish life did resume in the town. Perhaps it helped that the community was well established, its foundations going back to Israel Samuel Cohen - the first recorded Jew in Brighton - a silversmith and lodging housekeeper who lived at 22 East Street in 1766; and Emanuel Hyam Cohen, who came to Brighton from Munich in 1782 and kept a school for boys in Artillery Place until 1816. These early Jewish inhabitants built up a good relationship with the other townspeople. The fact that Brighton had a history of religious dissent helped create an atmosphere of toleration and acceptance. And by 1789 22 | The Post • t: 01273 299219

A second Synagogue was founded in c.1808, in Pounes Court, off West Street (opposite the Odeon); probably just a room in a house occupied by Jews and used until 1826, when the congregation moved to Devonshire Place. This was a small building, enlarged in 1836 by architect David Mocatta to include a residence, synagogue, workshop and schoolrooms. It was sold in 1876 after the beautifully ornate Middle Street synagogue was built. Records show that from the middle of the 19th century, the Jewish community took a prominent position in the town’s affairs. Leading Jewish citizens included Hyam Lewis who, in 1822, became a town commissioner and was probably the first Jew to serve in local government. Both sons of Emanuel Hyam Cohen rose to prominence. In 1827, his eldest son, Levi Emanuel Cohen established the Brighton Guardian Newspaper and is credited with being the first campaigning editor. Unafraid to cross swords with figures of authority or speak out, he earned himself a place in the history of British journalism. His brother-in-law, Henry Solomon was appointed the first Chief Constable of Brighton in 1838 - the first Jewish policeman, also remembered for being killed in his police station by John Lawrence, brought-in for stealing a carpet. And Sir Isaac Lyon Goldsmid, a director of the London and Brighton and South Coast Railway and deeply involved in the development of the town. The visibility of the historical Jewish community is made even greater by the number of famous and distinguished Jews who took up residence in the town. There are unfortunately too many to mention here, but amongst their number were the Rothschilds and the Sassoon family. It is said that the Sassoons helped organise assignations in Brighton between the Prince of Wales and the

actress Lillie Langtry. The great medical reformer Earnest Abraham Hart also came here. He was a champion of sanitary reform – something much needed in Brighton at this time – but is perhaps more famous for exposing the practice of ‘baby farming’. Then there was Eleanor Marx, daughter of Karl Marx, the most famous Victorian female writer to be associated with Brighton. Over the course of the 20th century Brighton continued to attract Jews from London - Brighton was, after all, ‘London by the Sea’. But it also attracted trouble, not least in the 1930s, when Mosely and his Facist Blackshirts regularly attempted to hold meetings here and just as regularly met resistance from members of the Jewish community. Today, there are four synagogues in the City and on the 27th January their congregations, along with millions of people worldwide, will remember the journeys taken and so inextricably tied to the catastrophe we refer to as the ‘Holocaust’. Footnote: To get a real insight into Brighton’s Jewish community refer to David Spector’s ‘The Jews of Brighton, 1770-1900’ and Marcus Roberts’ ‘National Anglo Jewish Heritage Trail’.

Would you like to take part in an arts & science film project exploring lower back pain & walking? Do you suffer from lower back pain? If so, you are one of the estimated half a million people who regularly find their lives disrupted by this condition. Taking a walk is often about more than just getting from one place to another – it can be thinking time for ideas and issues, for enjoying people’s company or looking at nature – walking is about independence. For people with lower back pain walking is also often a measure of their condition at any one time. Significant Walks is a research project exploring lower back pain and we want volunteers to take us on a walk to help us to understand the day-to-day experience of this condition. If you would like to get involved we will be asking you to take a short local walk that is important to you – this might be a regular journey or one that you take for pleasure. We will use ‘headcamera’ video technology to capture your point-of-view, and at the same time movement sensors will collect data from your lower back movements. The results will be combined to bring to life your unique experiences on film. You will then be invited to work with the research team to edit your film in order to show your physical experience of walking. The team will work with you to interpret the best way to express the nature and challenge of your personal movement and will guide you through this process at every stage.

Historical Model Railway Society Next Meeting

Thursday January 9th h London Road Station

Fifteen different walks will be recorded and edited together to create a large art/science resource. The research will be used as a tool to help others with lower back pain and screened as a video installation in galleries and health related venues across the country. Your involvement would be for three mornings or afternoons across a period of nine months. As well as filming your walk you will have the opportunity to talk about your experience of lower back pain. Six people have taken part in the project so far and have enjoyed the opportunity to explore a condition that, despite its prevalence, is often not understood or acknowledged. If you would like take part and hear more about the project please contact Dr Shirley Chubb by email at S.Chubb@chi.ac.uk

Big Garden Birdwatch 25th and 26th January 2014

The RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch activity is the largest survey of its kind in the world, last year almost 600,000 people across the UK counted the birds in their garden.The results make an important contribution to conservation, understanding the situation means we can take steps to help: Starlings hit an all-time low in the 2012 Birdwatch but their numbers then sank by a further 16 per cent last year. Numbers of house sparrows, of high conservation concern,

dropped by 17 per cent in gardens compared to 2012. Bullfinches and dunnocks fell by 20 per cent and 13 per cent respectively. Fortunately, some other birds have had better fortunes. Sightings of popular species like blue tits, great tits and coal tits have increased since the survey begun in 1979. Goldfinches, absent from the Big Garden Birdwatch top 15 in the early years, have featured regularly as a top 15 species since 2004.

People who take part are asked to spend just one hour at any point during the weekend noting the highest number of each bird species seen in their gardens or local outside space at any one time. They then have three weeks to submit their results to the RSPB, either online at rspb.org. uk/birdwatch or in the post. Register to take part in Big Garden Birdwatch 2014 at rspb.org.uk/ birdwatch
