Happy New Year

Welcome to the January 2014 issue of Seaford Scene. I hope you all had an enjoyable festive time! It’s back to reality now and onwards into the New Year. Let’s hope it’s a happy, healthy and prosperous one for everyone. There are all sorts of considerations at this time of the year, whether it’s what New Year goals and resolutions to set, what to do in the garden and where to find the best place to sledge! The answers are all here in Seaford Scene along with news from your favourite clubs and organisations. If you fancy trying your hand at writing an article on a topic of local interest, or have news on the club or organisation that you belong to, then drop me an email. The chances are your work could be published! Enjoy your January.

Friends of the Crouch FOTC tried to keep awareness- r­ aising about the issue, by holding smaller events such as tea parties for dog walkers and by giving out free dog poo bags.

Friends of the Crouch (FOTC) was set up in September 2009 by a group of local people who love Crouch Gardens. They wanted to encourage more community use of the Crouch to bring about a sense of belonging, ownership and pride in the park, and to promote a clean, safe and welcoming place for all. At the FOTC AGM in September 2013, it was unanimously agreed that since its beginning FOTC had achieved a great many of its objectives, and that it was now time to discontinue the group. What FOTC achieved The groups main aims were to introduce open­air theatre to the beautiful landscaped area in the park. FOTC approached two locally based touring theatre companies, The Rude Mechanical Theatre Company and Synergy, who came to the park for the first time in 2010 giving performances attracting up to 200 people. Both these companies now perform in the park on an annual basis. Additionally, FOTC collaborated with Seaford Community Garden (then the Exchange Project) and the Seaford Family Focus Group to run the first pumpkin growing celebration in the Crouch, and with Seaford Live to stage live music performances as part of Seaford’s annual arts festival in September. It’s hoped that all these events will continue to the great enjoyment of local residents for many more years to come. The problem of dog fouling in public places is often in the news. FOTC wanted to encourage dog walkers to clean up not only after their own dogs but also in general in Crouch Gardens. They started up the POOP club with this aim, and produced a calendar in 2010 by photographing over 60 dogs walked in the Crouch. This was hugely popular, and received a great deal of interest from the local press, as well as raising in t he funds. A An


Then, as part of The Big Draw in 2011 (a national campaign for drawing), FOTC teamed up with arts@thecrypt. They asked dog walkers to draw pictures of their dogs. The drawings were then made into a tea towel and sold. This again was very popular amongst the park’s dog walking community, and raised almost £100. In 2011 FOTC were approached by Action in Rural Sussex and Brighton Permaculture Trust and asked to particpate in their project, Local Fruit Futures. Together, and with the support of Seaford Town Council, they planted five rare Sussex apple trees in Crouch Gardens. A cooking­with ­apples workshop for children was held with a guest chef on planting day. FOTC conducted several surveys over the years to find out the views of local residents. The outcomes were used to help Seaford Town Council make informed decisions on issues relating to Crouch Gardens. Promotion FOTC wanted to put Crouch Gardens “on the map”, as many Seafordians appeared not to know where this lovely little park is. With this in mind, all the groups based in the park joined in producing a Crouch Gardens leaflet in 2012, which proved extremely popular. It was updated and reprinted in 2013. These leaflets will be available as long as stocks last at Seaford Tourist Information Centre.

A drop of the hard stuff In the classic Ealing comedy Whisky Galore, Scottish islanders try to pilfer a drop of the hard stuff. So it is in our first offering of 2014, The Angels’ Share, with the kind of social twist you’d expect from the director Ken Loach.

that the boy will have a better life. But first Robbie must sort out a variety of pressing problems, chiefly that his girlfriend’s family wants to run him out of town. He is given a lucky break by a judge who shows mercy, granting him community service, where he meets Rhino, Albert and Mo. The discovery that he is a “nose” ignites the story and this is when the comparison to Whisky Galore’s playful storyline is evoked.

U nveil the real you, this year

Perhaps you’re feeling a little dowdy when it comes to your style?

Do you sometimes feel you have a full wardrobe but nothing to wear? Are you unsure of how to dress to suit your age? As an experienced Hair Stylist and Style Coach, I have discovered that many of us agree, that the better you look, the better you feel about yourself. But more importantly, feeling comfortable in your own skin is an essential step to letting your outer beauty shine. However, my own journey to re-discovering the real me after having my daughter 9 years ago, has taught me how challenging and often overwhelming it can feel to maintain an outward image that expresses your personality, is age and lifestyle appropriate and right for your body shape, whilst being affordable.

As a Style Coach, I can work with you to help you discover a personal style. Together we will establish your body shape and the clothes that flatter the most, whilst learning how wearing the right colours, can help you feel happier, look healthier and often younger! A personal shopping session will allow you to discover that hitting the shops doesn’t have to be something you dread and that you can end up having a wardrobe full of clothes that express your personality and feel just right. Clothes that are really ‘you’. Alternatively, if you and a few friends are looking for a unique and fun night in, I also offer style workshops in your home. We all deserve a little more me time. If you’re ready to invest a bit of time and money on making yourself feel and look fantastic this year then I’d love to help you. Please contact me for more information, using the details below.

Rotary Club of Seaford Senior Citizens’ Party

In November the Rotary Club of Seaford held their third Senior Citizens’ Party, again staged at St James’ Trust in Blatchington Road, Seaford. Thirty five guests came along at around 2:30pm to enjoy themselves with a sherry (or soft drink) to start, followed by sing-along entertainment from Graham Tubb, Margot Miller and Rosemary Kemp. Then came Afternoon Tea with a variety of sandwiches and cakes as well as plenty of tea! More excellent entertainment from our trio of musicians was followed by Seaford Mayor, Councillor Anthony White, drawing the raffle prizes while Rotary President Michael Logan distributed them to the winners. Soon it was time to say goodbye for this year, and a happy group of guests were off home after a pleasant and refreshing afternoon. Thanks are due to many as well as the Rotarians, families and friends who gave up their time. St. James’ Trust kindly allowed us to use their facilities, and minibus transport was supplied again by CTLA with driver Gwyn, and this year also by our good friends the Lions Club of Newhaven, Peacehaven & Seaford with their driver Dirk. Mayor Anthony White enjoyed the afternoon with us all for which we thank him, and last but not least thanks to entertainers Graham, Margot and Rosemary.

Gambia Adventure

After attending Seaford Head School, Catherine Sage, 17, is studying for her A levels at Sussex Downs Lewes College. She lives in Seaford and is looking forward to an amazing adventure in The Gambia. Sussex Central YMCA has been running the Gambia Project for many years with the goal of teaching young people skills for maintaining high standards of behaviour, personal development and direction in their education. It is with this group that Catherine will travel, to learn how valuable the opportunities are that we have in


life by seeing the difficulties faced by children and young people living in less fortunate and culturally very different situations. Catherine explains “I have been given an itinerary for the week in Gambia. The places we are visiting include: an orphanage, a deaf school, a hospital in Banjul and local people’s houses. We plan to arrange activities for our visits and we are bringing clothes, toys and stationery to give children donations, and we may incorporate sport into our visits. For example showing the children at the deaf school sport and playing sport with the children at the orphanage.” Catherine needed to raise funds herself, and the Rotary Club of Seaford was delighted to donate £250 towards her £750 costs, as can be seen in the picture of President Michael Logan with Catherine.


The Rotary Club of Seaford has been supporting Bansang Hospital in the Gambia for some time, and our current project is being run in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Brentwood a Becket. One of the challenges facing the hospital is one of getting and retaining staff, especially as many staff migrate to Europe and North America. Therefore the two Clubs undertook to fund the erection of three staff accommodation units which have recently been completed. Our share of the cost is £1500 of which £500 is being given by a private, anonymous supporter. For more information visit Photos: From top: Catherine Sage and Michael Logan, L-R Anthony White, Margot Miller, Michael Logan, Graham Tubb, Rosemary Kemp; staff accomodation units at Bansang Hospital in the Gambia.

Running Commentary... My hope for the New Year is that many more Seaford Scene readers try out running/jogging as a new leisure activity. Some will know after only one outing that it was a good decision while others may take more convincing. As an aerobic exercise it has many recognised health benefits and it can raise self-esteem too, which is certain to have a positive knock-on effect on other aspects of your life. Most regular runners will, I’m sure, have already set themselves a few challenges or targets for the year ahead – of running faster, running further or for some, entering a race for the first time. Those runners with their sights set on a spring marathon will be hoping to raise their weekly long run to 15 or 16 miles and then to 17 or 18 miles next month, not an easy task when wintry weather can thwart those aims so easily. Some, however, will see the inclement weather as an opportunity to get dirty, to enter cross-country races despite the likelihood of knee-deep mud and biting winds, while the Chichester 10km in early February will be on the minds of many club runners, and they may

be hoping to sharpen their strength and speed through January. As a general statement, it is not wise to be out running for too long in icy conditions. Although good off-road trainers can keep a runner safe over the worst of running surfaces, leg muscles take a lot of convincing as they try to respond to the speed you want to run at while the muscles are never really warm enough, and your lungs will not be too pleased either, having to cope with icy cold inhaled air constricting your airways. It is still possible though, to do training runs that yield similar benefits as long runs but without being out in the cold for hours, by running shorter distances but more often. In other words, as an example, doing three miles six times a week is more beneficial than doing six miles three times a week, even though the maths would suggest there is no difference. Also, running two miles in the morning and then three miles later in the day is worth more than doing just one five-mile run. “Little and often” is a good principle to follow, allowing you to increase your mileage and strength when for whatever reason, you find It difficult to devote lots of time to your running. January is the month of hope, of better things to come and of more amenable weather. It’s also the month that welcomes the arrival of a new marathon – the Dark Star River Marathon. The adjectives suggest an ominous and wet marathon, and it may well prove to be just! However, the name is actually derived from the Dark Star Breweries who are sponsoring the event, and the River Adur which athletes will run beside from the Shoreham Sea Scout hut, up one side of the river to Cowfold and back down the other side to the finish. If you are a seasoned marathon runner, you like lots of mud and are unbelievably stubborn, this event should appeal to you. If only I hadn’t given up marathon running because for me, this sort of event really does tick all the boxes… apart from those labelled genteel, warm, loads of spectators, fast course and boring! Consequently, I suspect a few Striders may be up for it. Martin Bulger, founder member of Seaford Striders Running Club

What’s your Goal? Many of us use the New Year as a time to plan ahead and set goals or resolutions. What would you like to achieve in 2014 and how would you like your life to be different? It’s possible to set goals for most areas of life – health, career, social life, relationships and finance for instance. Or you might look at the different roles you play, such as wife, friend, mother, employer, and use your thoughts about how you could improve your success in those roles to help determine your goals. Only you can decide what would really make a positive difference to your life, and you are most likely to succeed if you select goals that really matter to you. There is less chance of success if you are trying to achieve something because another person wants you to.

Indeed some New Year’s resolutions only last a few days. To make a lasting change it’s important to make sure your goals are realistic, and to seek motivation, inspiration and support to help you stay on track. Do not set yourself too many goals or set targets way beyond your reach, as you will soon become disheartened and less likely to succeed. It’s better to set smaller goals that you can add to, or increase if things go well, and build on your positive results. Some people like to write their goals down or share them with others, and this can add to the accountability that individuals feel around goal setting, thus improving their chances of success. It can also be useful to ask for support from friends, who can give you gentle reminders if you are in danger of going off track. Where relevant, you may also want to get inspiration, advice and training from others such as weight loss experts, sports trainers or personal and career coaches. Other useful tools include imagery – this might be visualising yourself having achieved your goals, or sticking photographs which represent success to your fridge door or mirror. You might also find the use of quotes, role models and affirmations useful. An affirmation is a statement which says what you are aiming for in a positive way, and in the present tense. It helps to imprint positive beliefs on your subconscious. Finally, don’t forget to congratulate yourself when you do achieve success. Break your goals down into manageable steps, and celebrate by rewarding yourself at each milestone.

Love is all around me The Black Eyed Peas once asked “where is the love?” Girls Aloud boasted that they’re just love machines and The Darkness have declared “I believe in a thing called love” . Tina Turner, perhaps rather less convinced, asked “what’s love got to do with it?” and the Spice Girls insisted “there’s no need to say you love me... just promise you’ll be there”. Whitney, on the other hand, was less coy about things when she promised that “I-I-I-I will always love you.” Chris Isaak suffered the results of a broken heart and wailed “I...want to fall in love’ & Queen lamented “Can anybody, find me somebody to love?” Love matters to us. Relationships matter. The Marriage Course is being run at the Seven Sisters Pub, Alfriston Road in association with Kings Church Seaford and is for any married or co-habiting couples. Whether you’ve been together for one or sixty-one years, and whether you have a strong relationship or are struggling it’s a great opportunity to invest in the future of your relationship. All of life’s greatest achievements take practise, training and dedication – it’s the same with our close relationships. Over 6 Thursday evenings you’ll cover topics like: building strong foundations, the art of communication, the impact of family and good sex. It costs £50 per couple (which includes a weekly meal and course book) and takes place in a relaxed environment. There is never any group work and you’ll never be asked to share information about your relationship with anyone other than your partner. The Marriage Course is a Love Seaford initiative run in association with Kings Church Seaford and begins on Thursday evening 6th February at the Seven Sisters Pub. Although based on Christian principles the course is open to anyone, irrespective of whether they have a Christian faith or not.

SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES The old saying “There’s no smoke without fire” is a simple explanation of cause and effect. It also helps put paid to the confusion many of us have over the difference between a fire alarm and a smoke detector. We’re inviting you to pop along to Seaford Home Hardware to talk about smoke detectors and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors for your home. As winter is now apon us, the risk of a house fire increases. Experts agree that it is smoke rather than flames that is the biggest killer in a house fire. Modern furnishing materials – even those labelled “fire retardant” will eventually combust and give off highly toxic and potentially lethal amounts of smoke and fumes. If we’re asleep and inhale smoke we’re at risk long before the flames reach us. Time enough to make our escape if we have a smoke detector to rouse us. And that’s the difference between a fire alarm and a smoke detector. The former are used to alert others of the existence of a fire and are mandatory in public buildings, factories and offices. But the smoke detectors we fit in our homes are there to alert us to the silent killer, buying us time to make ourselves safe. The same is true of carbon monoxide (CO) detectors. Gas appliances such as central heating and hot water boilers, fires and heaters and even cookers, ovens and hobs have the potential to emit lethal doses of CO. The symptoms of CO poisoning can easily be dismissed as something less serious as they include headaches, dizziness, tiredness, nausea and vomiting.You may simply think you’re going down with a winter virus when actually you’re being poisoned in your own home! Mains gas, LPG, propane and heavy oil-fuelled appliances all have the potential to generate lethal amounts of CO. The only way to be safe and sure is to fit at least one smoke detector and CO monitor in your home. Here at Seaford Home Hardware we have a wide range of products to choose from and lots of free and friendly advice to help you make the right choice. Regular testing of your device is essential and batteries should be replaced at least once a year or in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Think separating from your partner has to end in a bitter court battle? Think again! Divorce doesn’t have to be devastating, separating from a partner doesn’t have to end in you and your family being emotionally torn apart.

“positional” and instead have to focus on the separating couples’ needs and interests to help them find a solution tailor made to the separating couples’ circumstances.

Collaborative Law is here to help. It gives couples who are separating an opportunity to work together with the support and guidance of their own lawyer.

The collaborative process is not driven by a timetable imposed by the court so the process can be built around individual circumstances and priorities. Sometimes only a couple of meetings are needed to conclude matters, in other cases four or five. Once an agreement is reached, the lawyers will put it into effect, and make it legally binding when necessary.

Under the Collaborative Law process each person appoints their own collaboratively trained lawyer and they then all meet together to work things out face to face. Each person has their lawyer by their side throughout and has support and legal advice as the matter progresses. Each person and their respective lawyers sign an agreement beforehand that commits them all to trying to resolve the issues without going to court. The agreement prevents the lawyers from representing the clients in court if the collaborative process breaks down. If that happens the clients have to instruct new lawyers. The idea being that everyone is fully committed to finding the best solutions by agreement, rather than through adversarial court proceedings.

Gemma Hope, a Solicitor and Collaborative Lawyer at Mayo Wynne Baxter, says “an adversarial and litigious approach to dealing with separation is not suitable for all families, each family is unique and it is important that there are alternative ways, such as the Collaborative Law process, available to help couples that are separating deal with the consequences that arise so their, and if they are parents, their children’s needs, can be met”. If you would like to find out more about the Collaborative Law process please contact Gemma on 01273 223220 or email:

The process can enable the separating couples to reach agreement on how the finances will be shared or what arrangements need to be made for any children for example. The meetings are designed to be led by the separating couple and the lawyers are discouraged from being To advertise in Seaford Scene please call 01273 710793 or email

The Joy of Sledging Family Advice Bureau A free, independent website full of information about resources for you and your family. For: babies, toddlers, children, teenagers, young people, parents and guardians.

What child, or adult for that matter, doesn’t love the sensation of sledging? Speeding down a snowy hill is the best fun ever. It can also be dangerous, which of course is half the fun. Every time it snows, sleddgng injuries flood the country’s A&E departments. More than half of them are head injuries, most not serious, but some deadly.

To sledge in safety, follow these rules: Choose the right hill The best are not too steep and have a long flat area at the bottom to allow for a gentle stop. Avoid those which end at a road or a car park, but also those which end at a line of trees, a pond or a wall! Choose the right sled Old fashioned sledges

with wooden seats and tall blades look wonderful, but on the soft sort of snow we tend to get in the UK, their sheer weight can cause them to sink or run too slowly. Conversely, on compacted snow or ice, the thin blades travel so quickly it’s easy to lose control. Plastic sledges with a braking system work well on softer snow, but can crack on compacted snow or ice, especially if they hit a stone. Metal tray-style sledges work well on all surfaces and are very robust, but can get up considerable speed, so may not be suitable for very young children. Wear sensible winter clothing Hats, gloves, padded, waterproof snow trousers, winter jacket, snow boots, anything that is waterproof and warm. Cycle helmets can be useful head protectors in case of a tumble.

Have fun, stay warm, stay safe! Sarah Davey

MERCREAD YOUTH CENTRE What have our young people been up to? We wanted to share with you a couple of recent events both of which have made generous contributions to the lives of others. Seaford Youth Forum organised a Dragon’s Den event for November 25th, interviewed and questioned some very well prepared applicants and were then able to make significant contributions to Seaford Netball, the Mercread After School Club, Tackle Homophobia in Football, MYC Girls’ Group and Friday Night Football. Jess, Alfie, Harrison, Neve and Megan, the aforementioned Dragons, certainly enjoyed their roles if the comments are anything to go by; “It should have been on TV, it was that amazing!”, “They all put their cases really well”, ‘Everyone was awesome!’ and ‘It felt like you were really helping worthwhile causes.

At the end of the same week a number of young people helped Mary Sims to put on a Bring and Buy sale which raised £369 for aid to the Philippines and, by December 6th, we will have added to this with sales from our stall at the Late Night Shopping extravaganza.

If in the future we are to increase the range of experiences and opportunities for our young people we do need a lively and imaginative Management Committee so how about meeting us at the AGM (730pm on Tuesday, January 14th at Mercread YC). Don’t worry, there are no major posts to fill! It would just be nice to see some new faces.

A view from the Potting Shed period of the 1930s to 1940s. The reviews said this book is a “rattling good read”. Then Alys Fowler brings out Abundance. This is a new practical guide to storing and preserving garden produce. And finally Chris Bearshaw has 100 Plants that changed the world. All of these books may help pass the cold days of winters so why not look through all the new season catalogues and see what really appeals to you for 2014? Mike Parker


January is the ideal time to spray fruit trees with a winter wash. Follow the instructions carefully as the wash may be harmful to beneficial insects and other plants. Inspect tree-ties regularly during winter months and replace any that are tight or broken. Replace any broken stakes only if the tree still needs the extra support. Apples and pears can now be winter pruned except when the temperature is below freezing. Aim to create an open tree with well-spaced branches that will let in light and air. Take out any diseased, broken or dead branches. Reduce the height of the tree if it is getting too high to be maintained. Plums and cherries should not be pruned at this time of year. Finally, apply a general fertilizer such as Growmoor or Blood, Fish & Bone. Most fruit trees can still be successfully planted in January provided the soil is considered suitable and not waterlogged. Otherwise keep any container grown plants in a frost-free place until the weather improves.

he memory of the garden and all its problems in 2013 is now fading fast. So lets look ahead to 2014 and see what’s new for the gardener. A quick look through the seed catalogues for 2014 reveals some interesting new additions. Thompson & Morgan have introduced the TOMTATO. This is a cherry tomato grafted onto a potato rootstock. It says that the result should harvest approx 500 small to medium size tomatoes above ground plus approx 2kg of white potatoes beneath. The exact cultivars are being kept secret. It also advises that for best results grow in a 40 litre bag rather than in open ground. T & M also introduce Rainbowbeet (beetroot) which is a collection of five different coloured beetroot in one packet. And finally their new season poppy is “Plum Pudding”, a non-fading compact and sturdy flower. Sutton’s Seed introduce a new collection of primula ballerina plants. Valentine (red), Nectarine (orange) and Buttercup & Cream (white). These are sold as ready potted plants. Unwins Seeds are introducing new “Gourmet Vegetables” which includes the New Zealand yam! And yet another new clematis “Samaritan Jo”. This has pale blue flowers with distinctive edged petals. There are also several new gardening books being published for the festive season. A green and pleasant land by Ursula Buchan covers the fascinating period of the Home Front and Dig for Victory


What’s New for 2014?


3Order seeds from your seed catalogues or purchase from your local garden centre. 3Check garden plants for frost and wind damage. 3Keep an area free of ice if you have a fishpond. 3Tidy borders by removing over-wintering weeds and leaves. Dig over raised beds or borders but do not rake smooth. Let the winter weather break down the soil.

John Colebourne gave the talk at our November meeting and his topic was ease call 01323 811834 / 07752 55 39 39 “Eastbourne, Email Empress of Watering Places”, (above) which proved to be a very interesting history of the town’s development and layout. The 7th Duke of Devonshire owned most of the vast area of the town and surrounding countryside when he married Lady Compton, who was an heiress. More land was purchased and many important houses etc. built. Eastbourne was divided into four “class” areas, namely Upper, Middle, Working and Higher. Each class lived in their own district. The houses varied in size and design to distinguish the significant social rank. Many still exist today, together with some of the large hotels, such as the Burlington, which developed the floral gardens on the seafront (later taken over by the council). The Queens and the Grand hotels are two of the largest buildings. The western district was developed in the 1880s but the Duke would not allow any shops to be built on the seafront – he felt they would lower the tone of the area! Holywell Park was laid out as an Italian garden but it declined over the years though it is still a pleasant aspect of the seafront.

The railway arrived in 1849 and the pier in 1856 (the seaward end was washed away in 1877). There are a number of churches in the town and a very good shopping centre. The Duke also owned the waterworks. He died in 1891 leaving a legacy of a lovely seaside town to be enjoyed by residents, visitors and shoppers alike. I know everyone present enjoyed the informative and enlightening insight into one of our neighbouring towns. Our next talk by Christopher Rudd, entitled “Through the ages and seasons of Ashdown Forest” will be on Wednesday, 29 January 2014 at the Clinton Centre, Clinton Place, Seaford, starting at 7.30 pm.

SEAFORD AFTERNOON FLOWER CLUB At our November meeting we welcomed Jean Plaskett with only four days left of her Chairmanship of the Sussex Area of NAFAS. Her flower arranging was titled “Go with the flow” and the arrangements certainly flowed. Bringing her own containers and stands, she transformed a rusty bin using fatsia leaves and starbursts of purple and white chrysanthemums. Next a bouquet holder was covered with black sisal and filled with white gerberas, quite a design statement, Laurence LLewellyn-Bowen eat your heart out! A horizontal arrangement was created using orange with red roses, maroon foliage, buttercup ivy, red roses and leucadendrons. An abstract design was made with red twigs, leucadendrons, aspedistra and variegated bergenia leaves, red hydranga heads and both red with green and red anthuriums Her 5th arrangement was created with various foliages, flame-red carnations and light and dark pink roses. The final design on a stainless steel stand like a large crescent moon that Jean had bought back from America, used soft ruscus, two different palms and red anthuriums. All of the arrangements were raffled off during refreshments. We hope everyone enjoyed our Christmas meeting. We do not meet in January so may we wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year and we look forward to making new friends in 2014. At our February meeting on Thursday 20th at St Luke’s Church, Walmer Road, Chyngton, Seaford, 2pm for 2.30pm, Pam Carberry will talk with slides on “The lives and art of Canal People” and she will be bringing examples.

Cottage and Contemporary Decorators

TOP TIPS – no. 3 Redecorating walls and ceilings with emulsion…

… If you are painting the ceiling and walls in different colours – white ceiling and coloured walls. Paint the ceiling first, overlapping the walls by around 10mm. Cut back with the wall colour to give a straight edge – it’s easier to get a straight line on the top of the wall than it is to cut in the ceiling edge. You should only cut in once.

BEYOND THE EDGE By Andrew D Mayes A local clergyman has published a new book with the challenging title of “Beyond the Edge”. The Rev. Canon Doctor Andrew Mayes is Rector of St Peter’s Church, East Blatchington, Seaford, and also adviser for spirituality for the Diocese of Chichester. He writes that society is challenged today at every corner, even the Church. We may long with nostalgia for the old times but in a way this can be the time for discovery. His new book is for people who wish to go deeply into a spiritual life. And he stresses that it can be used for individuals or in groups, and even for preachers.

For an affordable, professional and reliable service call The Cottage Decorators. mob

07880 904129 or 01323 891878

Creating beautiful homes for over 30 years

Dr Mayes worked in the Holy Land at a college in Jerusalem before moving to Seaford and he uses that experience to propel his case. A previous book by him, Holy Land? used that evocative landscape to pose key questions. Beyond the Edge is published by SPCK at £11.

1940s Revisited On Saturday 24th November, Community Transport for the Lewes Area (CTLA) held a 40’sthemed fundraising afternoon for around 80 guests and the Seaford Musical Theatre & Juniors (SMT&J) were delighted to provide the entertainment with popular wartime tunes including “We’ll Meet Again” and ‘“t’s A Long Way To Tipperary”. The guests sang and danced along with the performers and hailed the entertaining event as a “great success”. SMT&J are taking short breaks from their rehearsals for their January pantomime “Beauty & The Beast” to provide entertainment for several charities during the run up to Christmas, including the Newhaven Rotary Club, Fitzroy and Mencap. To purchase tickets for ‘Beauty & The Beast’ please visit or drop into the Tourist Information Centre in Church Street, Seaford, during office hours.

To be honest, it is a shock to find out that Jimmy Rabbitte is middle aged with teenage children. It shouldn’t be – after all, The Commitments was over twenty years ago – but it is. It seems to a bit of a shock to Jimmy too – and the shock is compounded when he discovers that he has cancer...

The Commitments may be better known as a film (and now as a stage musical), but it was a book first: the first of Doyle’s Barrytown trilogy, which followed the fortunes of the Rabbitte family in Dublin. Here, Doyle revisits the family many years on. Ireland is in the grip of the recession, and Jimmy and his wife are feeling the pinch. He is still in the music business, although rather than discovering new talent, he spends his days digging into the past for old punk bands who still have a following. And he has cancer. At the age of forty seven he has to face the fact that he could die. Doyle’s style is not for everyone, and his language is not for the faint hearted, but the dialogue still sails off the page as authentically as it ever did, and much of the story is carried through speech. There is a series of wellexecuted set pieces too, including the finale which brings together Jimmy, his long-lost brother Les, an old punk and a former bandmate (and fellow cancer sufferer), to witness Jimmy’s eldest son triumph in front of a festival crowd. OK, he is pretending to be Bulgarian and singing a song which is pretending to be 1930s Irish Blues, but who cares? If you have read the Barrytown trilogy, this is like meeting a bunch of old friends in the pub. If you haven’t, then read it anyway. Odds are you will go back to the original books to meet the characters as they were in the beginning.

Martello Rotary Club OF SEAFORD

Supporting The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust is a registered charity established to relieve sick and injured people in South East England and surrounding areas by providing a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service. The Martello Rotary Club of Seaford       organised a     sponsored walk   in May 2013     to raise funds     for this vital   service, and in November two members of the Club visited The Base in Marden, 2 Central Buildings,   sutton  park Road, Seaford opposite   TESCO supermarket.

Call us on: 01323 490048   Mon to Fri:  9am - 5pmSat: 9am - 3pm  








The KSS Air Ambulance is committed to ensuring its life-saving services are available to as many people as possible, regardless of the time of day, and in 2013 they committed themselves to night operations. Janice Vince, the current President of the Club, presented a cheque for £1445 to members of the Air Ambulance service. She said “I’m delighted that we have been able to make this donation on behalf of everyone who took part in the walk, and I would like to thank you all for making this possible”. If you would like to know more about the Martello Rotary Club, who meet every Monday evening at Seaford Golf Club, you can call 01323 873389, or email Photos: (from top clockwise)Some walkers before they set off and doing the walk, Janice handing over the cheque to members of the service.

The Air Ambulance has 2 helicopters, one at Marden and the other at Redhill, Surrey, each with a crew of 3 to 4 consisting of pilot, doctor and either one or two paramedics. They respond to acute situations where the need to get the patient to hospital quickly is vital, and the service is funded almost entirely by private donations.

The Stolen Star In “The Stolen Star” dance spectacular, it was the costumes that almost stole the show. A staggering display of glittering material and props delighted the full audiences at the Meridian Centre, Peacehaven, on November 22nd and 23rd. The story, devised and choreographed by Seahaven Dance Principal, Mechele Lefkaridi, was delightfully based around Norwegian folklore and we were led through the tale by student teacher, Amy Heather, as Miss Pepperpot who set out on a journey to find and rescue a fallen star, taken by wicked magpies, assisted by a voice over narration by Adam Lefkaridi. Amy’s student’s should be thankful that this beautiful and elegant dancer has not yet taken a professional performing path for herself, instead choosing to pass her obvious passion for dance onto a younger generation.

Annabelle Hill as Christabel the Cat, Miss Pepperpot’s companion, showed wonderful character and the Owl (Jess Easton), Robin (Lauren Kracke) and Moth (Debbie Moy) also stood out with their solo performances. Mainly ballet and tap centred, the synchronisation of the groups of dancers was astonishing, and the modern and contemporary spins on the music and styles kept the audience riveted throughout. Ellie Nickalls played a wide range of characters but captured the audience’s imagination with her expressive appearance as the scarecrow and I have to admit to holding back a tear during one of the final dances when the tiny star, a heart wrenchingly cute Poppy Tidey, decided to spend Christmas with Miss Pepperpot and they danced a duet. With dozens of performers of all ages making appearances throughout the show, the hard work that must have gone into this incredibly professional production paid dividends, and thoroughly deserved a longer run. After a moving speech by community dance legend, Jean Cantell, a collection was taken for two great charities – Chestnut Tree House and the Children With Cancer Fund (Polegate). Congratulations to the cast, crew and volunteers for another wonderful show.

Seaford Kurlers A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL FROM SEAFORD KURLERS I hope you all had a good time and were amongst family and friends. It is always a time for remembering past times – I think most of us take the trip down memory lane when Christmas was just childhood magic. 2013 was a fairly successful year for Seaford Kurlers. We were very active within the club and within Downs Leisure Centre where we helped to take part in their events. It is good to see how busy the centre is with all sorts of age groups keeping active. If Wave Leisure are as helpful to everyone else as they are with us, then it is easy to see why they are so popular. Now is the time to blow away the winter blues, get active indoors and get out and socialise. What could be better than New Age Kurling? The exercise is combined with as much effort as you wish to put into it. We add a little competition element into the equation and we seem to be getting it right – some of the time! We have recently changed the way in which we select playing partners. So far everyone is well pleased with the change. New ideas are always welcome. If you feel like doing something different and meeting other people, come along to see us at play. You do not have to be the “sporty” type and super fit. We have trips out every year to venues that are suggested by members. As we are an ESDA (East Sussex Disability Association) group we are able to hire their coaches. These are fully equipped to transport members with disabilities. The advantage of New Age Kurling, is that people with a disability are able to compete on a level playing field with anyone else. I also feel that this is a sporting activity that could easily be introduced to

schools, allowing disabled young people to join in with their friends and not feel excluded. So, if there are any sports instructors at our local schools that would like to see the game in action – please contact me. We meet every Tuesday from 2pm until 4pm at the Downs Leisure Centre Seaford. Pop in any time to see us at play. June Wood, Secretary, 7 Landsdown Road, Seaford, BN25 3JS. Email: Tel. 01323 895376.

Seahaven Lioness Club This article must start with an apology for the misinformation published in last month’s Seaford Scene about the date of our Carol Service. This was in no way the fault of the editor of Seaford Scene. We do hope that all the publicity put out in other places managed to inform all those who wished to attend of the correct date and that no-one missed out because of this error. To mark the end of this year of 2013 the Lionesses would like to thank the people of Seaford for their continuing support for the Lioness Club in their efforts to raise funds for good causes in the local community and beyond. Successful fundraising events this year have included a Barn Dance, Car Boot Sale (in Peacehaven), Tea Dance, Quiz and Fashion Show, in addition to our regular presence in Broad Street on Saturday mornings . We have been able to make donations to the following local organisations and individuals during 2013: Seaford Storehouse Food Bank Seaford Guide doing voluntary work in South America Leo House at Home Children’s Hospice Service Newhaven Community Responders St Wilfred’s Hospice Seaford Citizens’ Advice Bureau Lewes District Women’s Refuge RNLI Newhaven Denton Island Nursery Tideway School Presentation Evening Peacehaven & Telscombe Cliffs Scouts Seaford Silver Band Where we support projects further afield we normally do it through Lions Clubs International. This way help is co-ordinated and distributed through local Lions Clubs in the area concerned (there are 46,000 clubs worldwide with well over a million members) and we can be confident that all the money goes to the people who really need it. In 2013 we have donated to: WaterAid Lions SE District Shoebox Appeal for Belarus Lions International Blood Research Appeal Unusually this year donations have also been made to national charities Shelterbox and Hounds for Heroes, which is the chosen charity of the current President of the Club.

One of the aims of Seaford Community Garden is to educate ourselves and visitors, and that can involve a bit of experimentation. So expect to see some strange substances on the dug-over beds that are awaiting seeds for next summer’s crop of vegetables. That strange green weed-like vegetation over one bed isn’t carrots though you could be forgiven for thinking so, but – think of the song here – Phacelia, otherwise known as green manure. Sown in the early autumn it will be dug into the soil in early spring, just before its pretty little purple flowers come, its purpose being to prevent the soil from leaching out its nutrients. Over on another bed lies a layer of seaweed, there to provide trace elements and nutrients for the year’s brassicas – apparently asparagus loves it too. And as this is being written, Veolia was delivering a substantial contribution of what it calls soil conditioner. Pro-Grow is peat-free and the result of raw materials that can include grass clippings, shrub and tree prunings and any other biodegradable garden waste. It is all shredded in the open air and laid out in rows to start the composting process. After regular monitoring and turning it should be ready for use after about four months. The poly tunnel is providing a warm and sheltered haven for our tenderer plants over winter and Richard, who is studying Fishery Management at Plumpton

College, has made a great job of taming the riotous plant growth in and around the wildlife pond so the frogs will have room to spawn in spring. If you want to bring a little spring cheer to January we have hyacinth, grape hyacinth and daffodil tête à tête bulbs for sale and tulips will be following on shortly. And there should be a choice of greens on the sales table too. So do come in and see us on Wednesday mornings at the Crouch between 9.30 and 12.30. You are assured of a warm welcome.

A happy gardening new year from The Garden Team Photos: (left) Richard at work in the wildlife pond area. (Above) Bulbs in December should be ready for sale in January.

The Seaford Inner Wheel Club turned out in force to support Francoise Cutts, Chairman, at the District Meeting and they made a delicious lunch (photo above). In addition the Club produced a sale of handmade sewing. The money raised has been sent to the Rotary Shelterbox Charity appeal, which is providing refuge to victims of the Philippines disaster. In addition on 23rd November at St Lukes Hall the Club organised a Line Dancing and Ballroom evening for the Dance Company. The dance raised funds for the Seaford Downs Syndrome and Special Needs Group. There was a sumptuous supper, 4 superb quality hampers were raffled, together with tickets to see Anton du Beke in his show. Jean Vine, the President, was delighted to present a sizeable cheque to Ali Woodman, the charity’s representative.

SEAFORD CHORAL SOCIETY CONCERT Saturday 30th November 2013 St Leonard’s Church, Seaford


Mozart’s Coronation Mass, which was played at the crowning of Leopold II of Bohemia in 1791 in Prague, was also the crowning point of the Society’s Winter Concert. The choir was accompanied by the Exceat Players with Nicholas Houghton at the Organ, and the ensemble was admirably directed by Sion Parry. The evening’s music-making was enhanced by the four soloists: Jacquelyn Fugelle Soprano, Rebecca Ansty Alto, (who appeared in last year’s performance of Messiah), Gary Marriott Tenor, and Jamie Hall Bass. The concert opened with Mozart’s Solemn Vespers K339 dating from 1780. The fourth movement, “Laudate Dominum” is the most well-known and the soprano’s solo, which is of an almost operatic quality, was suitably realised by Miss Fugelle.


Personalised care and support in a homely environment

In keeping with the forthcoming festive season, two extracts from Handel’s Messiah were performed. “I know that my redeemer liveth” was followed by “Why do the nations...”, and this second piece was distinguished by Mr Hall’s assured handling of the difficult runs. The four soloists then blended most mellifluously in “Cast thy burden upon the Lord” from Mendelssohn’s Elijah, after which the audience were invited to join in the singing of the Advent Carol: “Lo, he comes with clouds descending.” This they did with great enthusiasm. The Five Mystical Songs of Vaughan Williams, was completed in 1911, and the first four sections, being settings of poems by George Herbert and scored for a baritone soloist, were sung with great sensitivity by Mr Hall. The third poem: “Love bade me welcome,” was accompanied by the choir in a hushed, rapt tone that made it particularly affecting. The Coronation Mass brought all the participants together in the final work of the evening. The soprano solo in the closing “Agnus Dei” is a pre-echo of the Countess’ aria, “Dove sono” from the Marriage of Figaro, and this was rendered with a suitable blend of the sacred and operatic by Miss Fugelle. If anything was missing from the evening’s performance, it was a lack of heft and sonority from the lower voices. As previously noted the Society is suffering a shortage of tenors and basses, but in spite of this the gentlemen made a spirited contribution to the proceedings. Hopefully, this deficiency will be rectified in time for the Society’s next productions, which will take place on Good Friday, 18 April 2014 with a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria. This will be followed by the Spring Concert on 10 May which will feature Dvorak’s Stabat Mater. Amfortas Sudoku Answers on page 93
