New library and day services for Seaford – planning application goes in

Part of the development includes up to nine supported flats for people with learning disabilities. The flats, having their own entrance and lift facilities, will be provided on three floors adjacent to but separate from the main library and day service.

A planning application has been submitted for a stunning new £6m development in Seaford to include a new library, day-care centre and supported living flats for adults with learning difficulties.

The supported flats will enable people with a learning disability to live in the community, with support and care being provided by a separate staff team. The tenants will particularly benefit from the increased independence and choice afforded by this exciting new development.

East Sussex County Council has submitted the application for the new development at Warwick House in Sutton Park Road. The application, together with another one for a temporary library at Elm Court, Blatchington Road, Seaford, will be considered by the county council’s planning authority. It is hoped that the Planning Authority will make a decision on the applications in late September. Councillor Tony Freebody, Lead Member for Community Services said, “I’m delighted that we have now submitted our applications. If all goes to plan, people in the Seaford area will be getting a brand-new library thanks to this multi-million pound investment by the county council. We will be able to offer local people their library services in a wonderful building that will be accessible to all. This is another example of our continuing investment in libraries across East Sussex.” Councillor Bill Bentley, Lead Member for Adult Social Care, said: “This development, subject to planning, will enable us to upgrade the older people’s day service currently offered at Homefield Place in Seaford. This is great news for both the users and carers of our service and for our staff who will transfer over to the new building, once it’s built.” Progress to date on the scheme has included wideranging consultation with library users, people who use social care services, local councillors and the voluntary sector. The consultation included special ‘drop-in’ sessions held last year, where local people were able to see the plans and meet architects and council staff to discuss the proposed development. The council-appointed architects for the Warwick House scheme are RH Partnership from Brighton and the construction company is Vinci Construction UK Limited of Maidstone.

For more information and further details about the consultation please visit the county council’s website at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/warwickhouse. Subject to planning, the county council is hoping to open the new Library and Adult Social Care development late in 2013.

Seaford Bonfire Society Seaford Bonfire Society proudly announces that it is to hold its first Bonfire Celebration on Saturday 22nd October. The Bonfire Boyes and Belles will leave their Headquarters, the White Lion pub in Claremont Road, Seaford at about 7.15 and will march to the War Memorial, where wreaths will be laid to remember the fallen of the wars. There will then be a torch-lit procession via Broad Street and High Street to the Martello Fields, where there will be a free firework display at 8.45pm. At least ten other Bonfire Societies will be marching with the Society, which should make it one of the most colourful processions to have been seen in the town for many years. Although the procession and firework display are free there will be collections on the night for the Seaford Lifeguards and local Downs Syndrome Support Group.

Seaford in Bloom

Awards Ceremony 2011 The Seaford in Bloom Awards Ceremony took place at Dean’s Place Hotel, Alfriston on Thursday 18th August. This is the fourth year running that the prizes for the Seaford in Bloom Floral Competition have been presented at this venue. Chairman Isabel Stephenson welcomed more than 80 invited guests, including the Mayor of Seaford, Cllr Linda Wallraven, and representatives from the many organisations in Seaford that continue to support Seaford in Bloom in many ways. Isabel then introduced Peter Tipping from Europlants, the company that is contracted to supply and maintain the beautiful floral displays in Seaford. Peter’s presentation and question time proved to be very informative and interesting. He highlighted the difficult task of keeping Seaford’s 112 containers and over 2,000 plants in tip-top condition throughout the spring and summer. As well as the problems created by the wind, salt-air and occasional vandalism, Europlants has to be aware of the local environment and always uses ‘grey water’ to carry out the enormous task of watering the thirsty containers. The town planting colour scheme is always discussed with Isabel very early on and next year’s red, white and blue theme has already been agreed upon. After a refreshment break, Isabel reminded the audience of horticultural enthusiasts that this was the 21st year for Seaford in Bloom. This year we have had many compliments regarding the excellent floral displays in town and, thankfully, no vandalism. This year’s Soup, Spud & Pud Lunch and the Golf Day organised by Arthur Bradbury and John Lockyer were a great success. In spite of the atrocious weather, £1,400 was raised at the Open Gardens Day with the added help of selling more than 120 cream teas. Isabel gave sincere thanks to all the loyal helpers and supporters who continue to make this annual event so worthwhile. Isabel expressed her gratitude to Seaford Town Council who continue to lend their support, particularly with the cost of watering the floral containers. She also thanked the Rotary Club of Seaford for sponsoring this awards event, Dean’s Place for hosting it, and all the different Seaford businesses, societies, clubs and associations who so generously give their support and sponsorship each year. The help from

these organisations and the events held by Seaford in Bloom throughout the year provide the funds for the containers and baskets in the town and for their maintenance. Final thanks went to her committee who always give her great support in more ways than one. Isabel then began the Awards presentation. There were more entries than ever for ‘Best Back Garden’ in this year’s Floral Competition. The judges, Phillip Pople and Ray Waites, managed to decide on the merits of over 100 entries. Isabel gratefully thanked them for their 11 hours of hard work. Unfortunately Ashley Stephenson was unable to carry out his judging duties this year due to suffering a heart attack and undergoing subsequent surgery. Thankfully, he is now slowly recovering. The awards were then presented by the Mayor, who congratulated each of the prize winners. There was loud applause when the Mayor’s Cup for ‘Outstanding effort to enhance Seaford’ went to The Peace Garden and the ‘Best Back Garden’ and ‘Best Overall Entry’ trophies were awarded to Mrs D Hicks. The Patrick McCausland Trophy for special contribution to Seaford in Bloom was awarded to Anne Silk and Jane Tuppen, who have given their support during all the 21 years of fundraising events. After the awards the Mayor thanked all those who had entered this year’s Floral Competition and, on behalf of Seaford Town Council, she thanked the Seaford in Bloom committee for all the hard work that they do in helping to make Seaford such a colourful town. The Mayor also commented on this year’s wonderful floral displays, which have been achieved in spite of the difficult growing conditions. Isabel closed the evening with a reminder that the next SIB fundraising event will be ‘A Pasta Evening’ at Diella’s restaurant on Friday 18th November. Full details will be posted around the town nearer the date. For photos of all the prize winners and information on all Seaford in Bloom events go to: www.seaford-sussex.co.uk/sib.

There are still many in Seaford who say ‘What is ST JAMES’ TRUST?’ St James’ Trust is a secular local charity and operates quietly from a large but well-concealed club house in Blatchington Road, close to the town centre. It is probably one of the lesser known, but hardest-working charities in Seaford. From its own buildings, dedicated volunteers provide an amazing variety of services for the elderly and disabled members of the community. The reasonably priced charity shop on site is open Monday to Friday 10am to 12pm and there is also a popular drop-in centre in the old Town Hall where anyone can buy a cup of tea with a slice of cake and simply sit and relax in a warm friendly atmosphere or chat to the volunteers. On May 26th at the Meridian Centre in Peacehaven, Mr Clive Rogers of Haven Guitar Club (who holds guitar lessons in one of the trust’s rooms) held a charity recital, with many of his students. The evening generated over £1,100 and Clive presented a cheque to Chairman Bryan Turner. The trust is very grateful to them for the donation. The AGM of St James’ Trust was held on Thursday July 21st at the main club house. The meeting was opened with a presentation by Canine Partners, a national charity that trains dogs to help people with various physical disabilities. The two dogs, Tiggy and Connor, were fantastic and trainer Ruth Narracott gave a detailed talk on her charity. At the end of the meeting, Mrs Maggie Gentry (Trustee) was presented with a bouquet of flowers by fellow trustee Doreen Woodward, on her retirement from the drop-in centre at the Old Town Hall in Church Road Seaford. Maggie has been serving teas and offering a friendly ear to visitors for the past twelve years. Ken Davies (Trustee), the joint co-ordinator of the dropin said ‘Maggie will be greatly missed’. Bryan Turner Chairman and administrator for the trust, said ‘I am very please to say that Maggie will continue to cover her two reception sessions a week at the main clubhouse in Blatchington Road and will organise regular visits to the local theatre for Trust members.’ He added that ‘the trust is run solely by unpaid volunteers and people like Maggie are few and far between. We are always looking for volunteers and anyone interested in assisting should telephone 01323 492800.’

On Wednesday 20th July, Chairman Bryan Turner was made very welcome by the Rotary Club of Seaford at their weekly meeting; where he gave a presentation to the Club on St James’ and its good works. On July 26th, the Lunch Club was pleased to welcome the Leader of Lewes District Council, Eileen Russell, and her husband, who enjoyed an informal meal and chatted to the members. St James’ Trust hosts a number of groups at the club house in Blatchington Road, including the Stroke & Caring Club, Lip Reading classes, Arts & Crafts, Hard of Hearing Club, a music group and a recorder players club, together with the very popular Tuesday Lunch Club, which provides a delicious hot meal for senior citizens together with a door-to-door minibus collection service at a low cost. Toenail cutting and NHS hearing-aid batteries replacement services are also provided along with non-technical hearing-aid maintenance. NHS Hearing Aid Battery exchange and a toe-nail-cutting service are two of the regular services available at the club house. There are places available in almost all of the activities and more information can be obtained by calling 01323 492800. The Trust is a mainly self-funding charity and relies totally on volunteers to help it maintain important services to the community. There are three large halls for hire at reasonable rates (which includes the use of the kitchenette) and a full-size catering kitchen that can be hired in conjunction with the Lower Hall for children’s parties, wedding anniversary parties or family get-togethers. The halls are also available to businesses for training. The trust is hosting an Open Day on Saturday 8th October 2011 between 9am and 3pm. Teas, coffees and ploughman’s lunches will be available and many of our groups will be showing off their particular interests. All ages are welcome to come and get to know us. If you have any spare time, the Trust is looking for people who can drive the minibus or act as escort, man reception for a four-hour shift on a regular basis, manage basic book-keeping, prepare or serve lunches and refreshments, support publicity and fund-raising, carry out general building maintenance, decorating or co-ordinate activities. If you feel that you could assist in any of these or just give some time please contact Bryan Turner on 01323 492800 for more information.

SEAFORD MARTELLO ROTARY CLUB At a recent meeting of Seaford Martello Rotary Club, held at Seaford Golf Club, President Reg Dove presented a cheque for £7,000 to Louise Pye from Help For Heroes. The Club had organised a sponsored walk in May 2011 starting at the Martello Fields in Seaford and finishing at the Martello Tower in Eastbourne, a distance of 12.7 miles. 115 people took part, and all finished! The route took them up and over Seaford Head, down into the Cuckmere Valley and then up and over the Seven Sisters to Birling Gap. The last part was over Beachy Head and then down into Eastbourne. President Reg also presented a special award to two of the walkers, Sue Nathan and Sarah Hatcher, who had raised over £800 in sponsorship between them. Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in 2007 after a profoundly moving visit to Selly Oak Hospital. They met some extraordinarily brave young men who had been wounded and they just wanted to do something to help. The charity has raised in excess of £108 million in the last 3 years. President Reg said ‘I would like to thank and congratulate all of the people who took part in this fantastic sponsored walk, some achieving their own personal goals, all achieving the goal of supporting their Heroes. It is very satisfying seeing Seaford Martello Rotary Club bring all of these generous people together to raise such a large amount of money. Look out for the next Martello Walk in May 2012. Join in and help us support a worthy charity again’. For more information about joining Seaford Martello Rotary Club email joinsmrc@aol.com or visit www.seafordmartellorotary. org.uk

A new vision for Arts at the Crypt

Facts about the Crypt

The Crypt Gallery has recently been refurbished and extended to incorporate the old Citizens Advice Bureau offices. There is now an entrance from Church Street and a large studio/workshop and a modern kitchen. New plans have been drawn up to help promote the Crypt Gallery and to ensure it is open more frequently to visitors.

Arts@theCrypt is the name we use to describe the building as a whole. Within the building, there are three distinct spaces: the studio workshop, the gallery and the Undercroft. The Undercroft is a 13th-century medieval crypt and is a scheduled ancient monument. A modern art gallery was built above the Undercroft in 1994. Both buildings were transferred from Lewes District Council in 2010 and are now under the control of Seaford Town Council. Upkeep and running of the Arts@theCrypt gallery is circa £11,000 per annum. Seaford Town Council has delegated responsibility for day-to-day management of the building to the Arts@ theCrypt Management Committee. Technical, financial and administrative support is provided by staff of Seaford Town Council. Under the lease agreement between Seaford Town Council and Lewes District Council, the permitted use of the building is as a community arts centre operated on a not-for-profit basis.

Two special open meetings to discuss the vision for the gallery, including possible independence from council funding, have been arranged for people who have either supported or shown work at the Crypt in recent times. These dates are scheduled for the afternoon of 10th October and the evening of 12th October. In advance of these events, over 500 letters have been sent out to supporters to get views on the outline plans and ideas. ‘We would like to see the Crypt opened more often, making it even more accessible whilst at the same time showing a wider and more exciting range of arts, said Ralph Taylor, current acting chair of the Crypt Management Committee. ‘Although Seaford is blessed with beautiful natural attractions, regrettably our local historical attractions are sometimes overlooked and the new vision for the gallery and the important medieval undercroft seeks to address this’. Brian Millar, one of the current volunteers says, ‘I hope that the Crypt can continue to attract artists and performers and that the Undercroft is seen by even more visitors in 2012. I enjoy being a volunteer but we would like to see new people on the management committee who have fresh ideas and who can bring additional skills to the team. We have produced a new leaflet to advertise the gallery and the Undercroft. We have also used the leaflet to publicise the costs of hiring the space - we have tried to keeps costs as low as possible to encourage even greater use of this lovely space.‘ More details on how to volunteer or for a copy of the Crypt gallery vision can be obtained from Dawn Thompson at Seaford Town Council (01323 894870 or dawn.thompson@ seafordtowncouncil.gov.uk).

"Steve replaced all the wooden interior doors in our house. He helped us choose what would suit our home best from a vast number of different colours and styles of wood, together with deciding the type of handles. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a very competitive price. The standard of his workmanship was excellent and we are thrilled with the end result. We can't recommend him highly enough and his experience and expertise in being able to do so many things means we will definately be calling on him again."

Living at Cuckmere Haven Part 2

landscape. For more information about any of the courses, please see the noticeboard outside the cottage or call us on 01323 890173. Autumn is a time to enjoy nature’s bountiful harvest and, with the surrounding countryside so rich and diverse, there’s been no shortage of wild-food feasting at the cottage! There’s been mushrooms galore, blackberries, apples, sea kale, greens, tomatoes and other vegetables from the garden, mackerel straight out of the sea and a batch of elderberries all ready to be transformed into elderberry wine.

For our first week here, we slept in a tent on the sea wall, hardly able to close our eyes for the magic of a moon-lit sea just below our feet. The tent’s now packed away until next summer, but every morning has filled us with awe and wonder as the dawn’s pink rays rise up behind the Seven Sisters. For someone who has a tendency to lie in, this dawn rising is quite out of character, but I honestly don’t want to miss a minute of the experience! Getting up early also enables us to use the daylight effectively, something that has become increasingly important in our life here.

We watched in awe as the first wild seas crashed up against the sea wall with an immense booming sound, throwing spray up against the windows. The days of sitting out on the terrace, gazing at a sparkling, still sea, seem summer memories now. The continually shifting moods of the sea and sky remind us to stop and stare now and again; to marvel at the birds floating on the wing or the different colours of the sea and the horizon. No wonder this landscape has inspired artists and writers for centuries. As the evenings draw in, Robb and I have realised that there is little we can get done by candlelight and surrender to the relaxation and stillness that flickering flames invoke. We’ve been sitting by the fire, reading, playing the piano (very badly, but hey, I’ve got to start somewhere!), playing card games and increasingly finding our eyelids drooping as we settle into the rhythms of day and night here. Goodness knows what we’ll be like when the clocks go back and it’s dark at 4pm – fourteen hours sleep anyone?! Lucy Corkhill

Well, what a whirlwind month it’s been! We had a wonderful week with Carolyn and Li Chen, which flew by in a flurry of visits from family and friends, and preparation for their two year trip. We drove them to Newhaven ferry on a bright Saturday morning and waved them off on their journey to Dieppe….then Paris, Cologne, Moscow…and Mongolia. We heard from them just as they were about to set off into the Gobi Desert. For the first few days after they’d gone, we really felt their absence and kept expecting Li Chen to run up from the beach or Carolyn to come bounding through the house to greet us.

It’s been full-steam ahead at the house, with the re-fitting of the kitchen and utility room to accommodate the gas cooker and gas fridge/freezer that Carolyn bought before she left. In his remarkably resourceful way – and always with an eye to keeping the unique character of the house intact – our friend Daniel Bishop has been hard at work, sawing, planing, sanding, building, renovating and generally helping to create a functioning kitchen. We’re excited about the workshops we’ve got coming up here in the autumn. After the success of the Celebrate Cuckmere festival, we agreed with Carolyn that the house was the perfect venue for creative activity. Tom Benjamin’s three-day oil-painting workshop starts in September (with future dates planned), followed by Alison Cotton’s watercolour days, including lunch here at the cottage, in September and October. The poet Kay Syrad is running a poetry workshop in October, to include an evening poetry reading around the fire with tea and cake. And in December, the artist Chris Drury’s two-day workshop looks set to be a thrilling exploration of the local

WHAT’S ON AT THE HOP? ‘New Paintings’ Philippa Cannan Saturday 8th Oct - Thursday 20th Oct Tues to Sat 10.30am - 5pm, Sun 12 - 5pm. Closed Mon.

My painting is influenced by my experience and practice as a psychotherapist. I am fascinated by how people relate to one another and to the world. This is reflected in my work through the ways in which the figures abstracted animal and human forms - relate to each other, to the surrounding space and to the canvas as a whole. I attempt, through painting, to express my sense of the connection between the more literal or concrete aspects of life and the many other dimensions and depths of human experience. Two years ago I moved to the East Sussex countryside, where I live surrounded by woods, pastureland and wildlife. It seems to me that animals symbolise life’s deeper energies and instincts. In my work, the momentary glimpse of a horse and rider, a deer standing motionless, the movement of a horse, dog or bird in flight, are taken, through the process of painting, into an arena of reverie, memory – or, perhaps, what Freud described as ‘free-floating attention.’ Energy, movement and stillness are important elements in my painting. I aim to reflect these in a similar vein to that of a piece of music or a dance, through the rather ethereal and dreamlike figures and images. I hope to convey a sense of timelessness in my work and for each painting to embody a sense of its own reality: a felt or imagined space, to which the viewer may respond. I completed a Fine Art Painting degree at Brighton University and during the past five years have successfully exhibited at galleries and shows in London and throughout the South of England. My work is held in private collections nationally and in Europe.

‘Intimate Abstractions’ Dagmar Eberts, June Frickleton, Tilney Hardiment, Fiona Robertson and Dawn Stacey Saturday 22nd Oct - Thursday 3rd Nov Dagmar Eberts I use any medium at my fingertips in my search to refine and distil human shapes and the action, emotion and potential inherent in those forms, Painting, drawing, kiln-formed glass, needlework and metals each offer ways in which to express the landscape of the human body. June Frickleton I use a personal vocabulary to create sumptuous abstract paintings that deal with pure colour and form. The paintings have a strong visual impact that is heightened by the use of a reduced palette. Recent paintings have become more concerned with the process of painting; the surfaces are stained, with numerous washes of paint applied to create layers. Tilney Hardiment It is the suggestive nature of images and the potential of work taking on a form that has a physical sensation on the viewer that is central to my practice. I paint and draw from photographs of my body and combine the sensate with the image by synching the subject with the materiality of the work. Fiona Robinson I am interested in expressing the emotions that I experience in walking through a landscape. What I record in drawing is not what I know to be there intellectually or exactly what I see with my eyes. What I record is what my senses were engaging with physically and my imagination was caught by. Dawn Stacey My paintings evolve from walks and journeys where memories are stored as a source of inspiration. Images may reflect on a glimpse of morning light on a winter’s morning. Recording my response to the experience of being in the landscape is intended to capture the essence or mood of a place.

Images: (l - r) ‘Tapestry Head’ by Dagmar Eberts, ‘Three Little Birds’ by Dawn Stacey and ‘Nocturne’ by Philippa Cannan.

SEAFORD TWINNERS’ ARTEFACTS ON DISPLAY

Ashley Electrical is a family run business, we are fully insured, NIC EIC approved and part P registered. There is no job too big or too small.

In the 30 years since German town Bönningstedt came to East Sussex seeking a twin town, many unusual and interesting artefacts have been gathered by the Seaford Twinning Association. Not the least of these is the original Twinning Charter, one of two lovingly made in 1984 by Seaford artist Paddy Avann. Written in German and English, one is in Bönningstedt, the other on the wall in the Town Council Chamber at 37 Church Street. Next to the Charter is a display cabinet full of other interesting items. These can be seen by anyone attending Seaford Town Council or committee meetings, or attending the Mayor’s receptions and fund-raising events. There is a helpful mini-history of the Twinning attached, and full descriptions of the items displayed. Bönningstedt has, for a tiny town, a very large Fire Brigade. Tankards celebrating its 50th anniversary in 1984 are proudly displayed. An anchor with four prongs (right) celebrates the German town’s links with Seaford, Rachoni in Greece, and Crivitz. Crivitz was in East Germany, so when the countries re-united Bönningstedt had an unusual feature in a twin in its own country. There is also a piece of the Berlin Wall (above) on display, still bearing its original colourful grafitti. The Bell of Friendship was presented to Seaford in 1989, and the Bust of Aphrodite came from Rachoni in 1990. When Crivitz celebrated its 750th anniversary as a town it had its own sparkling wine produced, and one of the bottles also stands in the display case. It has been drunk! There are many other interesting items on view, and the display, put together by Liz Riley, is periodically changed. Liz is also the Membership Secretary, so anyone wishing to join Seaford’s friendly Twinners can contact her on 01323 896315.

JDC’S HANDYMAN & DECORATING SERVICES WAVES – Supporting Families in Seaford

Parentplay course This October sees the beginning of a new Parentplay course run by the Seaford-based charity, WAVES. Running from the 5th of October to the 23rd of November, the Parentplay course is designed to empower parents and carers of children under the age of five to play with their children, and reassures them that they are doing a good job in caring for them. Suitable for parents or carers of children under 5 years of age, the Parentplay course aims to give practical tips and advice for parents and carers through group discussion and debate, to build up parents’ self esteem and confidence when with their children and to promote positive relationships within the family. The family workers and volunteers of WAVES run the course at the Seaford children’s centre, based at Cradle Hill School, and encourage active play during ‘messy-play’ at the end of each session, where adults and children alike can get involved in exciting and creative activities, such as making play-dough, painting and cooking. It has been incredibly popular with local parents and carers, with the previous course being fully booked and the upcoming course already having a waiting list. Feedback from those who have completed the course agree that Parentplay has been a resounding success, with one parent explaining ‘it has been lovely for me to have a cuppa and chat...and learn a few things too – the main thing being that I’m quite a good parent after all!’. The Parentplay course has also been described as ‘positive’ and is a good place to ‘learn new ideas’. Credit must be given to the WAVES family workers and volunteers who worked to make the course such a great success, and who provided, and will continue to provide, fantastic support to local families. For more information, please contact Annick on 07840 365041 or the WAVES centre on 01323 873797. Vicci Cowlett

SUSSEX ROAMABILITY FRISTON FOREST RAMBLE The forest trees were at their greenest as we took our scooters through the forest to the pond. Here we stopped for lunch whilst the crowds of dragonflies entertained us, along with a variety of colourful butterflies. A sparrowhawk was also watchful and we were glad he made no catch that we were aware of. From here we went on to the ancient church of West Dean, parts of which date back to Saxon times. The church is beautifully kept and welcoming. Inside, there is a bronze bust by the sculptor Jacob Epstein of Viscount Waverley, who lived for some years at West Dean and is buried in the churchyard.

Another bust is of Sir Oswald Birley, who lived in nearby Charleston Manor, by Clare Sheridon. To help us with the visit we had handboard guides to carry round the church while visiting which ensured that all the interesting features of this little church could be enjoyed. We took afternoon tea in the garden of Exceat Farmhouse and there we ended our ramble in style.

NEWSLETTER FROM OLD SCHOOL SURGERY Together with other volunteers I recently became a member of the Patient Reference Group. Every two months this group will meet with staff to discuss issues that arise in connection with plans and practice of the Old School Surgery in Seaford and the surgeries in Alfriston and East Dean. The first meeting I attended agreed the ground rules about confidentiality and that it would not be a platform for individual problems. Some discussion explored the means by which all patients registered with the group could easily access information and be informed of changes. It was agreed that information for the three surgeries would be available on the Old School Surgery website at http:/www. oldschoolsurgery-seaford.nhs.uk/ and also through the Cuckmere News and the Seaford Scene magazine.

Rivendale Lodge

A questionnaire will soon be available for patients to complete and the results assessed and compared with performance nationally. A sample copy of the questionnaire was looked at and discussed by the group. The aim is to try and obtain views representative of the local population, including all age groups. There was a suggestion of a Forum facility on the website and this will be explored more fully. This is the beginning. But it is a well known fact that it is good to talk. Ann Bryan

CANCER AND WEIGHT TOP FACTS Obesity is the single biggest cause of cancer among non smokers. l In the UK, about 13,000 people every year could avoid getting cancer if they maintained a healthy body weight. l Every two minutes someone is diagnosed with cancer in the UK (Cancer Research UK). l More than 1 in 3 people will develop cancer during their lifetime (Cancer Research UK). l Overweight and obesity are the most important known avoidable causes of cancer after tobacco. (World Health Organisation) Current levels of overweight and obesity in the UK could lead to around 19,000 cases of cancer each year. (International Journal of Cancer, 2009). l Being overweight or obese increases your chances of getting all cancers by 50 per cent and liver cancer by nearly fourfold. (Cell, 2009) Indeed, excess weight is linked to increased risk of developing several cancers including cancers of the colon, breast in post menopausal women, endometrium, kidney, oesophagus, gallbladder and pancreas. (Cancer Research UK). l

£1466 UDLVHG

On behalf of Macmillan, an enormous thank you to the 1067 visitors who came to see the art and take tea in the garden at Driftwood, as part of the recent artwave festival. Proceeds from donations, tea, cakes and raffle sales meant we were able to hand Macmillan a wonderful cheque for £1466. 50

Maintaining a healthy weight and eating a diet high in fibre, fresh fruit and vegetables lowers the risk of developing cancer (World Cancer Research Fund Expert Report 2007). Parents can reduce their children’s cancer risk in adult life by encouraging them to eat healthily and keep active. (Cancer Research UK). If you are overweight or obese, losing weight can help reduce your risk. One study found that previously overweight women who lost 20 pounds or more had 11% lower risks of cancer overall compared to women who had never lost that much weight. (The Iowa Women’s Health Study, 2003). Apple-shaped people who put on weight around their stomach may have higher risks than pear-shaped people who put on weight around their hips (Cancer Research UK). There is strong evidence that regular exercise helps protect against the risk of colon and post-menopausal breast cancer, and is likely to reduce the risk of other cancers too. (Cancer Research UK). l It is never too late to start exercising either. An American study involving 10,000 men, many of whom had been inactive for many years, found that those who did start to do regular activity reduced their risk of diseases related to inactivity such as cancer by around a quarter. (Cancer Research UK). l Research has also shown that exercise may also be beneficial in reducing mortality rates. Women who undertook exercise equivalent to 3-5 hours brisk walking a week reduced their cancer mortality rate by 50% compared to those who did less than one hour a week. (Cancer Research UK). l

Dreams will be made of this... There’s a rather special house on the scene in Eastbourne. It will be a haven for children with terminal illnesses and disabilities, and a perfect place by the sea to get that important break that can mean so much. The money to buy the house was generously donated to Dream Makers National Children’s Charity by The Keith Baker Charitable Will Trust, through the trustees at Barwell’s Solicitors at Seaford. It will be known as The Keith Baker House and will provide a lot of happiness for many families. Work has now begun to rip out the old interior and create a wonderful holiday home for children, and this is where we hope that perhaps you can help? Can You Help? We are quite desperate for donations of funds to help to create a lovely and exciting interior. Also Seaford Scene carries many advertisements for professional decorators, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and a host of professional people. We are hoping some will be able to offer their services or products free of charge to help to get the house finished and open. Readers will then see advertisements for traders who have given their time or sponsored products as they will carry the special logo; We are Dream Makers…. The Keith Baker House Can YOU do any of the one hundred and one things that we need to get the house open? Could YOUR company provide a boiler, carpet, wallpaper, fabrics or even ornaments to match the plans of our voluntary designer? We are trying to get a white designer bathroom, a wonderful kitchen, new central heating system, pipes, taps, light fittings, sockets, the list is endless. For health and safety reasons we can’t accept any second hand items, but everyone could do all sorts of things to raise money, and it’s such great fun to get involved in charity events. So...could you or your friends set one up for Dream Makers please? Do you do Zumba? Then why not organise a Zumbathon? Get all your friends to Zumba in relays for hours! Everyone could Zumba for half an hour or as long as you think possible and get sponsored. And with enough people it could last for a whole day if

52

you want it to! Take out the cost of the hall etc and you can raise a whole lot of money and make many new friends. Had you thought of a Children’s Zumbathon? How about hiring a bouncy castle and have a Big Bounce? The Keith Baker House is very near to Eastbourne’s swimming baths so come on, why not do a sponsored swim? How’s this…if you’ve got noisy children how about a sponsored silence!! The possibilities are endless. Please, please help us. Thank you.

If you can offer help with professional services or donations of items, please contact Paul Rogers on 07794 176391, who is local or to set up a fundraising event, please call Dream Makers on 01564 778121 or 07816 124 889.

Three Simple Exercises to relieve back pain In order to achieve a strong, healthy, stable back, regular exercise is required. The exercises should strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, and also the abdominal and oblique muscles that encircle the trunk like a corset. Those of us stuck at desks for most of our working day can try these exercises whenever we have a few minutes spare. Try 10-15 repetitions and hold each position for a count of 15. l While sitting at your desk, put feet flat on the floor and hands on the edge of the desk. Push back, arching your spine into a convex shape, then reversing it into a concave position. l Stand about 30cm from a wall and place hands against the surface at shoulder height. Bend elbows to support upper body and, using abdominal strength, lift heels while keeping the back straight. l Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, about half a metre from a wall. Face the wall and lean against it using hands, the back should be straight. Reach up with right arm and simultaneously lift left leg backwards and upwards. Repeat on the opposite side.

Running Commentary... It is now 25 years since the Seaford Striders Running Club was formed, and I feel immense pride in all it has achieved in that time. From its humble beginning back in 1986 it has become a widely-respected and, although small in comparison with many other clubs in Sussex, a remarkably successful running club. Its ethos - enjoyment of running within a friendly atmosphere, has over the years enabled the Striders to grow in size, expand its horizons and develop a thriving group of junior runners as well as triathlon/ duathlon, cycling and walking sections, but perhaps it’s the diversity of the runners themselves with their differing backgrounds and reasons for running, of serious runners combining with fun runners; marathon nutters with those happy just to run distances up to 10km, and long-pasttheir-sell-by-date athletes running alongside teenagers, that is the main reason for the Striders’ continuing success. While long-standing members, Pete and Denise Forster, and Bill and Glynis Young, have given strength and stability to the Striders, a continuous flow of new blood into the Club has ensured it has remained buoyant and forwardlooking. Many of the runners regularly take part in the yearly series of events in the Sussex Road Racing Grand Prix, and have helped the Club to finish in the top three every year for the last fifteen years, including winning it on four occasions. Maintaining a balance in the Club are the many runners who don’t compete but just run for the enjoyment, the fitness and the friendship. Additionally, a strong social side to club life further unites this broad mix of runners. The competitive side of the sport of running is reliant upon people and organisations laying on races for runners to enjoy but it’s the large number of individuals who freely give their time to help marshal the events that is even more important. Without them, races just would not happen. Events such as the Striders Mince Pie 10-miler (in December) and the Seaford Marathon (in August) require about 50 friends and members of the Club to act as marshals on each occasion, and raise valuable funds for local charities. They also assist in the Seaford Half Marathon, Beachy Head Marathon, the Warren Hill XC, The Jog Shop 20 and the Alfriston Water Meadows Races. The importance of this ‘giving something back to the sport’ cannot be understated.

54

SEAFORD KURLERS On the 20th August, 2011 Seaford Kurlers took part in the Wave Leisure Disability Games. This was done in conjunction with the charity Searchlight and Sainsburys, Newhaven branch. Sainsburys nominated the charity as the one that they would sponsor for this year. We were asked if we could provide kurler members to help with and supervise the game of New Age Kurling and very easily we found ten volunteers. We arrived at 10am to set the equipment up and had a really super morning helping out with the Searchlight staff. All of the players thoroughly enjoyed the morning with us and so did we. I cannot explain how satisfied we all felt that we

had been able to do this. I have never known such an appreciative bunch of folk. It did us good to see everyone enjoying themselves so much. All praise goes to Wave Leisure and Sainsburys. Seaford Kurlers are members of ESDA(East Sussex Disability Association). Apart from the sport that we play every Tuesday afternoon at the Downs Leisure Centre, Seaford, we also have social events. To find out all about us, and the sport and the social activities that we do, please contact Mrs. June Wood, 7 Landsdown Road, Seaford BN25 3JS. Tel: 01323 895376.

Heritage Open Days at Seaford Museum As usual, Seaford Museum was the only place in Seaford to take part in the national ‘Heritage Open Days’ programme. On the weekend of 10th and 11th September, the museum had free entry and the visitors flocked in on both days. This is always amazing as normal entry prices are very low. On the Sunday, volunteers from the 1st Foot Guards (1815) re-enactment group provided spectacular displays of marching along the seafront, musket drill in the moat and a gory amputation of a leg of a wounded soldier, with graphic descriptions of the procedure...too graphic for some! The musket drill also attracted a lot of attention and despite the noise, many adults and children enjoyed it.

PROBUS CLUB OF SEAFORD Probus was formed by a small group of gentlemen in the early months of 1969. These men thought it would be a good idea to meet up once a week at a local hostel and have a little drink or two followed by luncheon and followed with an invited speaker on various subjects of interest. Seaford Probus Club was formed in late 1969 and has existed successfully ever since. Probus is very informal, although the members do wear a jacket and tie at the meetings, and members would have held a responsible job in their working life.

Come and join us as a visitor on one of our meeting days. If you are interested contact our president Tom Riley on 01323 894858 or past president John Ilett on 01323 894073. We will be pleased to welcome you. Incidentally there are over 300 Probus Clubs in the British Isles and some in Australia, Canada and France. Probus also has no executive headquarter control over clubs.

Our club meets the second Tuesday of each month at the Seven Sisters Hotel on Alfriston Road, Seaford at 12 noon for a 1pm luncheon (three-course meal and coffee). The meeting ends with a speaker who gives a talk for no longer than 30 minutes. In addition we have a social side such as the ladies’ luncheon in May and a ladies’ dinner in December, both held at the Hydro Hotel in Eastbourne. Also over the past years we have had arranged trips at home and abroad to places such as Paris, Ypres, Bruges, Luxembourg, the Isle of Wight and many other place of interest. Wives and partners do join us on these outings.

East Sussex Disability Association Over the last few weeks ESDA has been very lucky with it’s outings and the weather. A few weeks ago, Ovingdean WI made us extremely welcome, inviting us to their village hall. We had a very pleasant ride, viewing the sites of Brighton sites along with the masses of tourists that were visiting Brighton. We then took a pretty route to Ovingdean, where we were greeted with warm hospitality and masses of delicious food. There were lots of sandwiches, beautiful cakes, meringues with cream, which were all delicious, also plenty of tea and coffee, and nothing was too much trouble. A raffle was also held to support the ESDA. On September 2nd another trip was orgainised which was to the Womens Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) in Eastbourne. Once again we all tucked into a good varied selection of lunches and desserts. Unfortunately, owing to the heavy mist that day, Beachy Head and the Belle Tout lighthouse were rather a blur. Nevertheless, the company was good and on both occasions we all felt relaxed and enjoyed the trips. Next ESDA meeting is on Wednesday 26th October, We have a varied selection of subjects to discuss, quizzes, etc. Transport is available and we all have a good time. Raffle prizes are always welcome. For further details please ring Mrs Jane Wynniatt (Chair) on 01323 896953. A big thank you to Diella’s for the excellent food, service and hospitality at the social lunch on the 26th August, Everyone had a wonderful relaxing time. There will hopefully be another social lunch in February 2012 to cheer everyone up after the Christmas festivities, and to enjoy the beginning of spring. Rita Evans

BENEFITS OF BECOMING A ‘LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP’ I am often asked by clients what the advantages are to becoming a ‘Limited Liability Partnership’ rather than remaining in a normal partnership. As a straightforward partnership, of say two partners, each partner is liable in full for all the debts and liabilities of the partnership. If things go badly wrong and one partner just disappears, the remaining partner is left to carry the can in full for all the liabilities of the partnership. Although the remaining partner is generally entitled to a contribution from the other partner, this is not much help if the other partner has disappeared. A Limited Liability Partnership (“LLP”) is like a company and is a separate legal entity. With a few exceptions, in an LLP, the individual partners are not personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the business. Instead, it is the LLP

which is responsible and if the LLP is not able to satisfy its debts and liabilities from its own assets, it can be put into insolvency. The big advantage is that, generally, each partner’s own personal assets, such as their house, are not at risk as they do not form part of the assets of the LLP. Whilst there are some relatively minimal additional costs associated with being an LLP, from a tax point of view, each partner is taxed on pretty well the same basis as is the current position. However by becoming an LLP, individual partners may be able to sleep a little better at night.

SEAFORD & DISTRICT HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

In every association you need people who are willing to devote some of their time to help keep the cogs oiled and running. My role for the Seaford & District Horticultural Society is that of Sponsorship and Advertising Organiser. Over the past few months I have been talking to local people who may be interested in promoting their company profile to Seaford residents. I feel that for a community to be strong, local people need to support their local traders and organisations. At the Society we have many types of sponsorship and advertising packages to suit all wallets or purses. Our Society holds two ‘shows’ each year that produce some fantastic entries. Our main Horticultural Show is one of the largest in the county. We publish an Annual Programme, which is issued to all Society members. I can hear you say, “what’s the good of me advertising to gardeners?” Well, gardeners are people who buy the same things as all of us! So if you would like to consider advertising your company or business in our 2012 Programme and Show Schedule please feel free to contact me. If you work for a local company then take this in for your boss to have a look at. Alternatively, why not give a gift of sponsorship for that person who is difficult to buy for. Their name will be printed in the Annual Programme and acknowledged at our shows. 2012 is a special year embracing both the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games. The Society will be having themed competitions within our two shows.

Society History Part 9. The ’80s The 1980s continued with the usual popular coach outings to places including the RHS garden at Wisley. And at one of the monthly social evenings members were entertained by the Seaford Operatic Society. An experiment was undertaken in 1982 when it was decided to hold two main shows during the year. The Summer Show was held at the Downs on 25th August and the Autumn Show was held in the United Reform Church Hall in October. Both shows attracted many more visitors than previously experienced. This did not last as by 1983 the Summer Show was so disappointing it was decided not to hold another one the following year. Mr Brian Budd was elected as the new Chairman and Mr H. Dollin as Membership Secretary. The 1983 Autumn Show was also abandoned due to extremely poor weather when most flowers and vegetables crops were ruined. In 1985 the society’s premier award of the Banksian Medal was reintroduced and presented to Mr Lawrence Fears for his achievements during the year. In 1988 Miss Connie Brewer was elected as President. Connie had been enlisted by her parents as a Society member during the 1914-18 war and became a Committee member in 1944. Connie sadly died the following year in 1989 having served the Society for 45 years. In December 1989 the Allotment Section became a separate organisation but its “special relationship” has continued to this day. To be continued... Mike Parker. MEMBERS’ NOTICE The next Social Evening is on Thursday 27th October at 7pm. Our Guest speaker is Mr Martyn Hird, who will talk about “The High Beeches Garden in Sussex.”

Seaford Gardening Club Well, autumn is now upon us with the cooler days and the evenings beginning to draw in. We shall be putting the clocks back soon so it will mean battening down the hatches ready for the winter. Let’s all hope it’s not such a severe one as last year. There are still some jobs to be done in the garden, in preparation for the colder months ahead, like the final weeding of flower beds, cutting back the roses and other shrubs and sorting out and cleaning the greenhouse. There was no meeting in August so no talk to report on this time. Our new 2011/12 season started last month with a full new programme of interesting talks to entice you to come along to our meetings, held on the last Wednesday of the month. Looking at the subjects to be covered, I am pleased to say that our next talk by Miss Glenda Law is entitled “Wildlife of Northumberland at 7pm on 26th October. I have recently visited this area for a holiday and loved the bleakness and sheer beauty of the Pennine area of the Durham Dales and beyond. Hills are covered in purple heather and gorse together with hundreds of sheep, rabbits and various birds. A delightful place to visit. The next meeting will be held at the Clinton Centre, Clinton Place Seaford (please use the rear entrance).The evening will begin with a short AGM followed by the talk with Miss Glenda Law. Please come and join us for an entertaining evening in friendly company. You can either come as a visitor for a fee of £2 or you can join for the coming year for a subscription of £10.

SEAFORD Scene

This garage in Steyne Road is still in operation as Marden Motors. Mr French started a motor garage in Newhaven in 1896 but shortly afterwards moved to Church Street and established this garage nearby. Petrol for motor cars was first sold from here in 1904 and two years later the business had expanded to become the Seaford Motor Engineering Works. The garage not only offered motor repairs but was also able to make spare parts for cars and even offered driving lessons. This view dates from about 1908. Kevin Gordon, Seaford Museum
