The Beacon Show public arts trail continues along Seaford beach this September, shining a light on Seaford’s coastal community and celebrating the unique coastline. During the summer the SCIP team have been busy working with the community on a wide range of events and creative workshops, to further the community’s relationship with the local coastline and its natural heritage. SCIP partnered with Plastic Free Seaford for Plastic Free July working together to smash the beach clean attendance record set by local environmentalist Claire Sumners, and with 103 attendees they certainly did Claire proud. ‘It was extremely important to us that this project promoted the risks that waste presents to our local and international coastlines, and also promotes sustainable use of our beach. We were so excited to see so many new faces at the beach clean, connecting through The Beacon Show with this important subject’,

The Beacon Show public art trail continues along Seaford Beach throughout the summer until the end of September 2022.

says Josie Swan, SCIP Overco-founder.thepast three months’ dozens of young people and adults have joined SCIP in their new home, The Crypt Gallery, to work with paper artist Lauren Hayes and learn some amazing papercrafting skills. From bright bold colour, pop corals, to intricately decorated lobsters, the community has created a huge range of beautiful creations, using Canford papers donated by Daler Rowney for the project. The pieces made by the participants will all be exhibited as part of the forthcoming Down in the Deep paper exhibit, which brings Sussex marine life to Seaford for Artwave Festival this September. ‘It’s been such a fun process working on the prep for Down in the Deep, and the skills and tips Lauren Hayes has given us all have been amazing! The young people and adults have all really responded to the project, and we can’t wait to see all their creations come together!’

Alice Carter, SCIP co-founder. Down in the Deep is a wonderful opportunity to continue exploring The Beacon Show’s theme of local marine life, and also learn about the threats it faces. It has been supported by The Rampion Community Fund.

Recycling old inflatables: lilos, dinghies, arm bands, paddling pools, beach balls (and air beds!) – saving them from landfill and protecting the environment!

Individual bags and purses will be sold via our website (currently under construction) and part of the proceeds from every sale will go to the RNLI. www.instagram.com/thereinflatableswww.facebook.com/thereinflatables

SPLASH POINT JAZZ CLUB

Splash Point Jazz plays at The View on the second Wednesday of each month, so look forward to tenor sax Jane Tuff on 14th September. Andrea Hargreaves

Please mention Seaford Scene when contacting advertisers of that club’s MC with a line of patter that evoked Ronnie’s cheeky impertinence. Inventive humour ran through the evening, with Neal for instance playing a G while introducing No More Blues, to evoke the minuscule bikinis on hedonistic Copacabana beach. A hot night got even hotter. The result was a party linkedwhereatmosphereguestswerebytheirlove of jazz, a fiesta where the guest of honour superseded his build up. For Brandon, who has performed with Eric Clapton and featured on film soundtracks including Alfie and The Look of Love, lived up to Jazz Journal’s description of him as: ‘Muscular and robust one moment, warm and soothing another, stretching out with an abrasive edge.’ His four-octave range appeared effortless and fun as he tiptoed into the highest notes. He and his tenor sax were one as his head dipped and left knee bent towards the right when caught in the emotion of the music. Then his torso and neck straightened like a strongman about to lift a man mountain as the tempo and volume increased. Magic to watch and magic to hear as his sax produced rippling notes that rolled into waves of energy that could have powered Seaford – but when did he Onbreathe?double bass Nigel extracted emotion with every pluck of his strings, his strong fingers achieving a fine range of emotive sound, while Paul caressed his percussion instruments with tenderness, before bringing out the big guns, each quietly supporting Brandon before delivering their own solo spots with ingenuity. For an encore we were treated to a riotous 12-bar blues including Sue muting her trumpet with a red-andwhite sink plunger. Well, it was that sort of night.

Photos l-r: Nigel Thomas and Sue Richardson with Brandon Allen; Neal Richardson with Nigel Thomas.

Close my eyes and I could have been in Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. But then I would have missed the wide-ranging musicality and powerful physicality that is the wizardry of tenor sax Brandon Allen. This is the performer who Jazzwise Magazine acclaimed, ‘Arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today.’ And there he was, 70 or so miles south of London, guesting at Neal Richardson’s monthly Splash Point Jazz Club session at The View, Seaford Golf Club. And we loved him. What’s more, we loved an evening that also featured the Eastbourne club’s hugely talented Andy Panayi on soprano sax, Sue Richardson who combined quiet vocals and belting trumpet interchangeably, Neal (vocals and piano), Nigel Thomas (double bass) and Paul Cavaciuti (drums).

If jazz is a combination of blues, syncopation, swing and creative freedom, then these six people added another element: joy, both in the way they clearly got a tremendous kick out of jamming together and how the audience rapturously appreciated their performances. Brandon and Andy duetting was a harmonic treat. But back to Neal for a moment. This man not only creates much of his own material – I particularly liked his warm nod to Victoria Wood in the very funny Can’t Get Down and Dirty Tonight – he makes the piano keys dance, and sings and is a comedian. A brief return to Ronnie Scott’s here, because he has something

Following our summer break, we are now pleased to be starting another season packed with exciting talks, competitions, outings, and practical evenings. The first meeting is at Seaford’s Con Club on Friday 2nd September, when we welcome everybody back and get together for a bit of socialising. Members will also get the opportunity to share some of the photos they have taken over the summer and briefly talk about them if they want to. Hopefully we will also be welcoming some new members. The following week, 9th September, is our first competition of the season. This is an on-line Zoom meeting, and will feature Round One of the PDI League for Projected Digital Images. On 16th September we are back at the Con Club, where we are delighted to be holding our first Print Competition for over two and a half years. It is the first round of the Print League, judged by long-term friend of the club, Jack Taylor EFIAP DPAGB. On 23rd September we have an on-line talk, via Zoom, on Smartphone Photography. This should be an interesting one, as phone camera technology has improved so much recently and you don’t necessarily need a lot of expensive camera equipment to take good photos these days. There’s no meeting on the last day of the month, but instead we have an ‘Out and About’ event the following day, on Saturday 1st October. More details about this will be posted on the website. Our annual exhibition, the first since 2019, was held over two weeks in the summer at St Leonard’s Church,

Many thanks to the Mayor of Seaford, Olivia Honeyman, who came along to select her favourite photo for the ‘Best in Show’ award –congratulations to Steve Wares, whose print The Flying Rainbow (Gannet) was chosen. The exhibition was a great success and we had getting on for 500 visitors in total. It was good to meet so many people and see them enjoying the club’s work. There were around 60 mounted prints on display, as well as a slideshow of projected images. Most of the prints on display were for sale or available to win with the raffle, with many more available in browsers for people to look through and purchase. We were pleased to have a good number of sales, and we received a lot of positive feedback about the quality and variety of the photos on display. Many thanks to all those at the club and the church who helped with the organising, and to all those who visited. We are hoping to do the same thing again next summer.

An Extra Special Kaleidoscopic Selection of Artwork for Artwave 22 Gallery Uno, 14a High Street, Seaford BN25 1PG

Linda Wells – Fibre & Textile Art Originally from Bromley in Kent, Linda started her working life in window display. Whilst working at Marshall and Snelgrove in Oxford Street, London, she learnt her trade by attending day-release courses and on-the-job training. At that time window displays played a large role in projecting the image of the retailer and were all individually tailored for each store. She recalls one Christmas when the windows were dressed as Dickensian street scenes, with the display team making every prop and costume from scratch. Yet, there wasn’t a single piece of merchandise for sale. Moving to the design department, she helped create and interiorimplementdisplays and adapting them for stands for Ideal Home exhibitions at Earl’s Court. This inspired her to study Interior Design, becomingsubsequentlycontracts manager for the House of Fraser at their London head office. Amongst her various clients was a house builder who commissioned Linda to design and dress over forty show homes in and around London, eventually supplying the homeowners with everything down to knives and forks. Her client list also significantly included royalty, supplying gifts to the household of the Queen Mother at Clarence House. One of her treasured memories was when she met the Queen Mother and her corgis at St James’ Palace.

September arrives and with it the twenty-ninth festival of visual art, Artwave. As with the other fourteen other venues around the town, Gallery Uno will be warmly inviting you in and will be taking enormous pride in showing you their extra special ‘kaleidoscopic’ selection of art, craft and design for the occasion. Our featured exhibitor during Artwave uniquely challenges the boundaries between craft and art. Working in textiles, Linda Wells produces framed, embroidered compositions that could be easily mistaken for fine art painting. Frustratingly her participation in Sussex Arts Collective events had to be deferred due to COVID. Her work now has become an indispensable part of their exhibitions at Uno and greatly admired by the many.

After moving Buckinghamshire,to Linda returned to academic studies in Fine Art and Textiles, gaining a City and Guilds in Creative Embroidery. Now working part time, Linda found she had free time to join art groups and exhibit on a regular basis.

NINE Opening times: Mon – Sat 10am – 4pm, Sundays and Bank Holiday Monday midday – 3pm. Open daily throughout Artwave – Saturday 27th August to Monday 26th Sept (closed Weds 31st August and 21st Sept).

During a trip to New Zealand, Linda discovered wool fibres and the unbelievable range of colours available. On return Linda experimented with wet felting, where the agitation of fibres forms a fabric ideal as a base for embroidery. Thereafter and for the past 14 years she has developed her distinctive techniques, capturing other fibres and threads in the felt base before adding detail by machine and hand embroidery.

The Prize Winners were: Overall winner and winner of the Instrumental Section, Isobel Peerless (Violin); Winner of the Vocal Section, Grace Kelly; Winner of the Ensemble Section, Five members of Seaford Head Samba. A special prize for potential was presented to singer Emma Hayward. The section winners were presented with their prizes by the Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Olivia Honeyman. Seaford Rotary President Ann Reed presented the overall winner, violinist Isobel Peerless, with the Colin Seymour Shield. Congratulations to all the competitors and thank you for entertaining us.

Young Artists continues to be one of the competitions which has been possible to hold again, despite the pandemic, although this year it was held much later than usual. Altogether it attracted twenty-nine entries – five Beginners, (under 7), ten Juniors, (7 – 10) and, with a lot of support from the Head of Art at Seaford Head School, fourteen in the 11 – 13 years group.

After a two-year absence, the 10th Seaford Rotary Young Musician of the Year competition was held on Saturday 9th July at Seaford Baptist Church. The aim of ofthebymusicalshowcaseyoungsterstocompetitiontheisencouragetotheirtalentgivingthemexperienceperformingon

Prizes in the Beginners and Juniors sections were shared between students at Cradle Hill and Chyngton Primary Schools. In the Beginners section Peggy and Phoebe from Cradle Hill Primary School were placed first and second with Sophie from Chyngton Primary School taking third place. There was a turn round, however, in the 7 – 10 age group where Venus, Aaron, and Orla from Chyngton Primary took the first, second and third places. Prizes and certificates of commendation were presented at both Cradle Hill and Chyngton Primary Schools by President Ann Reed. All the prizes in the 11 – 13 group were won by students from Seaford Head School with first, second, and third-place prizes being awarded to Douglas, Anna, and Lily. As the standard was so high, an additional Highly Commended prize was also presented to Saiyara. This competition cannot run successfully without the cooperation of all our Seaford schools and also our judge Richard K. Potter, all to whom grateful thanks are due.

a public stage. This year there were nine soloists in the instrumental and vocal categories and three ensembles. Ages ranged from 11 to 16. The music ranged from classical to present-day pop; the instruments played included keyboard, violin, cello, electric guitar, and percussion. The audience, which included the Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Olivia Honeyman, Young Mayor Erin Franklin and Deputy Young Mayor Nia White was treated to a varied concert performed with confidence by all the competitors. It was good to see those who were slightly nervous about taking part lose their fears and come off stage having obviously enjoyed the experience. The event could not have happened without our three judges, Pat White, Sue Richardson and Frank Parker. It is always a challenging task to compare the different instruments, songs and styles of music. Young Mayor Erin Franklin and Deputy Young Mayor Nia White presented certificates to each of the competitors. At the end of the evening, Seaford Rotary President Ann Reed congratulated all the competitors and thanked all who had helped in making this a most successful evening.

Young Artist’s Competition

Seaford Rotary welcomes new members and new Friends of Seaford Rotary. For more information contact us on www.seafordrotary.org.uk.

The task was to provide a painting or drawing on the theme of Arrival of Spring which offered extensive scope to interpret the task in various ways, and which provided a challenge to the judge because of the ingenuity of some of the entries, and the high standard achieved by many of the competitors. We were again privileged to obtain the services of local artist Richard K. Potter to carry out the judging, and he took into account creativity and originality, quality of execution, representation of the task, and overall impression in deciding the winners.

CONTAINER GARDENINGIPOT C

I won a first prize at the annual show for a patio pot, one of several that I planted up earlier in the season to provide big splashes of summer colour. If you don’t want the bother of doing your own, then a visit to the garden centre in late spring or early summer will provide excellent choices of ready-made patio pots and hanging baskets. Container gardening is in fact big business, but it wasn’t always so. The gardens of my childhood didn’t have pots, plants went into the ground. WW2 had encouraged Dig for Victory, when flower beds made way for veg, but the 1950s saw a change as the economy improved and gardeners returned to flower growing. I remember my dad’s pompom dahlias. There were no garden centres in Britain in the early 50s, plants were grown from seed, swapped with friends and neighbours, or bought from nurseries, but often bare-root and only in their season. Revolution came in the 1960s with the arrival of garden centres and containerised plants. Edward Stewart is credited with these introductions to the country, following a trip to Toronto in 1953. His family had a nursery in Ferndown, Dorset, where converted sheds became their first garden centre in 1955. In 1961 they opened‘Garden-Lands in Christchurch. The rest is history, garden centres now provide a day out with shopping opportunities, lunches, teas and those containerised plants. With dwarf varieties of everything from buddleias to fig trees, you barely need a border.

and bulb catalogues, to plan for next year’s season in your garden, and for the annual show. On 6th August the Society held it’s first show in three years at Cradle Hill Community Primary School. It was a busy, successful afternoon, with 200+ visitors viewing the numerous entries in multiple categories, and while the weather has been especially challenging for gardeners this season, there was plenty to see from artichokes to hydrangea heads.

Take a large quantity of coffee grounds, several buckets of tomato plant trimmings, lots of unseeded annual weeds, myriad dead-headed blooms and several buckets of kitchen vegetable waste, mix all together and what do you get? Amazingly rich compost of course! As the week’s chief compost chef, James said that the coffee grounds, saved by Nemeir and Sarah at Baca’s café in Dane Road, made brilliant compost when forked into the other ingredients. The tomatoes and cucumbers were fed by a mixture of this compost and commercial compost, lately generously contributed by Morrisons, he said. Volunteers including James, Katie and Veronica had a big job on their hands, contributed to by the success of the compost: harvesting said salad stuffs and cutting off the tomatoes’ lower foliage in order to let the light in to ripen the burgeoning trusses.

The Garden Team

Some of the produce, including French beans being picked by Neill and other volunteers, courgettes and marrows, was being sold on Maggie’s sales table, while more produce and plants were being earmarked for the garden’s stand at Seaford Horticultural Show, for which volunteers were eager to not only sell it but also to demonstrate what a great place Seaford Community Garden in the Crouch is.

Meanwhile, on that early August Wednesday, on the classroom table Steph had placed one of her legendary cakes. Could life get better? To lepidopterists the sighting of a Jersey tiger moth on the garden’s very successful Macmillan Trail day might equal, it but it would be a close run thing. Thanks to Phil and his camera we have it on record that this daytime flyer alighted in Seaford, miles away from its more usual Hampshire to Devon territory. And that’s typical of this garden of surprises.

SEAFORD AFTERNOON FLOWER CLUB

Our meeting this month on 15th September will take the form of a workshop. Members will be creating a pavé design. Pavé is the French word for a paved surface – originally referring to a cobblestone street. The original definition was a style where the plants are massed to form a purely horizontal pattern, creating a cobblestone effect. We are sure that this will provide a very entertaining and interesting afternoon for all of us. Our competition is entitled Autumn Harvest, which will give our members the opportunity to indulge some of the lovely colours of the season in their designs. At our meeting in July we were entertained by Tracey from Ambers Florist. Tracey created some interesting designs using carrots, peppers and broccoli. We will all see vegetables in a different light now! Our competition was entitled Fun with Flowers, and our members certainly did have fun with their creations, as you can see from the photographs.

Seed bare patches where the lawn has not recovered (or has given up!). Apart from looking unsightly, thin and bare areas invite moss, undesirable grasses and weeds.

If your lawn has suffered from the dry weather this summer, feels spongey underfoot or has excess moss, it may need scarifying. Scarifying removes excess thatch enabling the better flow of air, nutrients, and moisture to the roots, resulting in a healthier lawn, and creating space for new fresh grass to grow through.

Scarify to allow fresh growth

There are times, even with best endeavours, that your lawn does not meet your expectations. We offer a range of seeding options, all at a fraction of the cost of returfing.

You may be familiar with these unwelcome visitors to your garden and the damage they can do to your lawn. In cold winters, they tend to sit lower in the soil so you may not notice damage until spring. In mild winters, the larvae feed through the winter and can be large enough to cause significant lawn problems by late winter. They are best treated when they are small, early autumn, so if you have had problems with them before or have relatively new turf, take preventive action early on…or it could be too late.

Attend to bare areas

Late Summer Feed

Apply a fertiliser to help prepare the lawn for Autumn and Winter. Our nutrient-rich fertiliser slow releases for 4 – 5 months and our selective herbicides will take care of any weeds which have popped up towards the end of the summer.

Advertising Feature

As the days and evenings cool and we see wetter weather, start bringing the height of the cut down to 1inch/2.5cm. Collect the clippings to prevent possible disease problems in damp weather and avoid mowing in wet or frosty conditions, as this can damage the grass.

It’s been a tough summer for lawns. With the summer months drawing to a close, now is a great time to give your lawn some extra TLC. Follow these simple tips to get your lawn into good shape before winter sets in and ready for spring next year.

Aerate for better root development

All soil types can become compacted, especially in periods of dry weather. Compaction prevents free drainage of water, hinders microbial activity, and affects root development, all of which means a thinner, weaker lawn and more than likely, more moss. Hollow tine aeration removes small cores of soil, thereby reducing compaction and improving the overall health of your lawn.

Regular readers will know that I have organised the Macmillan Garden Trail between Brighton and Seaford since 2012, raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Macmillan Horizon Centre in the city. This year’s recent event raised an incredible £7,114.61 across the weekend. The 17 garden owners taking part, seven of whom were in Seaford, were very pleased to see two days of brilliant sunshine, instead of the usual weekend of mixed rain and sun. There were nearly 1,400 individual garden visits made throughout the weekend, almost £1,500 worth of tea and cake sold as well as £1,300 received in generous donations from visitors both in person and online. I was extremely pleased to be able to welcome The One Show’s gardening expert and Gardeners’ Question Time panellist, Christine Walkden, to my garden, to help us mark the fact we had raised over £100,000 for the charity over the years. We were fortunate that many people came to chat to her and seek gardening advice for their own plots. Christine spoke of how impressed she was that the trail had sustained over the 12 years, thanks to my ongoing commitment and the willingness of others to open their plots.

In addition to Christine, the Eastbourne-based, holocaust survivor, Dorit Oliver Wolff, was on hand to sell copies of her book, From Yellow Star to Pop Star. An author, public speaker and artist, Dorit recounts her remarkable journey from Nazi persecution to pop stardom in spectacular detail. More importantly, 50% of her book sales over the weekend went to the charity too. Thanks to all those who participated in the event.

Megan Watson, Macmillan’s Fundraising Manager in the South East said: ‘I attended Geoff’s garden and spoke to visitors. It was lovely to hear, first-hand, their previous years’ experiences. The feedback was brilliant, and made me truly proud to be involved in the event and have the pleasure of meeting you all. Thanks so much to Geoff for the commitment and passion he has for his event and it’s been truly lovely to see him in action this year. £100,000 is a staggering amount of money and truly is something to be celebrated. I personally and on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support cannot thank you all enough!’

WOOD CREATIVES

‘We aim to make from wood something as marvelous as the tree it came from!’

We are a diverse group of men and women who love creating and making things from wood. Our members are making items from the wide variety of wood available to us using a variety of techniques. These include relief carving, sculpture, lathe turning, scroll sawing and pyrography – just to name a few. We also have been known to make furniture, boxes and other household items, as well as fixing chairs, stools and other broken and damaged furniture – we have been ‘The Repair Shop’for decades. We are always open to new ideas and techniques that broaden the scope for working with the wide variety of timbers available and to include the many craft skills involved in working creatively with wood.

Wood Creatives are based in Newhaven and were formerly known as The Hillcrest Woodcarving Club. We are steadily gathering in numbers from Seaford, Newhaven and the whole East Sussex area. We continue to improve our equipment and facilities at the workshop within The Hillcrest Centre, Bay Vue Road, We hope to develop more woodturning and general woodworking skills, and it is our intention to have tuition for these activities and dedicate one day a week or evening to these specialist classes –watch this space for future developments. Recently, we have been talking to a number of new initiatives including Seaford Environmental Alliance, The Skate Society, Wilder Gardens Project and Save Seaford Swifts to name a few as we are in a position to engage with community groups and help future projects with our skills and workshop facilities. We hope to forge wider links to community activities, making lasting relationships and welcome new ideas to our Wood Creatives facilities. Currently we open on Mondays and Thursdays from 9.30am to 3.30pm. As our numbers have increased, we have the option to open on other weekdays and as autumn approaches we are considering the possibilities of opening in the evenings and even weekends if demand is high enough. The current fees are £25 per month, with half price for the unwaged (tea and biscuits are free). For beginners the club provides a good selection of carving chisels, as well as hand and electric tools, for use in the club. We also provide a friendly and helpful environment with advice and support from experienced members. The current management team (Ted Gordon –treasurer, Jeremy Adams – secretary, Joe Boylan –publicity) has built up the membership to pre-lockdown levels. We are, however, very keen to welcome new members to our club If interested. Please pop by on a Monday or a Thursday to look us over and have a guided tour. Wood Creatives are at The Hillcrest Centre, Bay Vue Road, Newhaven, BN9 9LH. For information contact Joe 07768 331 038.

ACVTA members are looking forward to the visit of our French friends on 16th – 18th September, and planning activities for the weekend. Our group’s visit to France in July coincided with the Linen Festival, and the visit had a flax and linen theme. A guided walk to view the flax harvest (photo above), a visit to a little factory processing the flax into linen, and a fashion show of clothing made from (you’ve guessed!) linen, gave a good insight into the local, specialised industry. We learned that France is a leading world manufacturer of flax fibre, and that at harvest, the whole plant is pulled up and left to rest in the field. Having been welcomed on the Friday with drinks and dinner, there were several other sociable group meals as well as quieter moments in the homes of our generous hosts. Membership is free this year – yes, fees have been waived for everyone in 2022! Events and visits are planned so everyone can take part if they wish, whether or not they speak French. Our membership secretary is Robert at rmorri1847@aol.com.

There is no one cause for all types of dementia and scientific understanding is incomplete, but there are things we can all do to reduce our risk. The best way to prevent dementia, according to Race Against Dementia, is learning. Higher and longer lasting education is proven to improve cognitive Inperformance.midlife,symptoms including hearing loss, high blood pressure, obesity and a high alcohol intake are risks that can be tackled early. Limiting your alcohol intake to no more than 21 units a week; reducing smoking and physical inactivity, and taking steps to avoid social isolation can all act to reduce the risks. Despite these risk factors, the positive message to get across is that these are all factors that, for the most part, can be controlled to an extent and, even if you’re in midlife, you still have time to change and Exercise.adapt.Eat a balanced diet. Keep a healthy weight. Control your blood sugar levels. Lower your alcohol intake. Reduce cholesterol. Stop smoking… All of these things will work together to reduce your blood pressure to a healthy and sustainable level, and act against the risk factors that could lead to dementia.

Are you at risk?

Dementia can take various forms, of which Alzheimer’s is only one. Different forms of dementia have distinct symptoms, which can help to identify them. For example, where there are mood changes but no memory loss it can be a sign of someone developing Lewy body dementia.

Clifden House Dementia Care Centre has been delivering exceptional residential and respite care for 50 years. It aims to maximise everyone’s potential through choice, reducing the use of unnecessary medication and alleviating the symptoms of dementia in a caring and supportive environment. Follow us and our community on www.clifdenhouse.co.ukFacebook

Retirement can be a blissful release from the stresses and strains of work and responsibility, whether to your work colleagues, your family or yourself. It is also a time of great change and readjustment to a new and potentially very exciting time of fresh challenges and pursuits, as well as long-put-off dreams finally realised. Research by Dementia UK has concluded that whilst we are also at an advancing age, personality changes after people retire could signal the early presence of dementia. Spotting the symptoms early on can be key to getting the best treatment for the condition, which is affecting more and more people as the country’s population lives longer. Different forms of dementia have distinct symptoms. One recognised sign is when retired people get up in the middle of the night thinking they must go to work. Difficulty understanding time and place is a tell-tale sign that the person may be developing dementia. Another sign is an unexplained loss of interest in things the person used to enjoy. Becoming forgetful, getting lost in places that should be familiar, and having trouble holding onto fresh information are also signs the brain is beginning to fade. Mood swings, anxiety and depression are also among the things to look out for.

Just for the record; I’ve never trusted them. Unlike all the other familiar, friendly faces on my back garden bird table there’s just something about the Great Tit that’s always made me suspicious. Perhaps it’s my mistrust of uniforms. The Great Tit’s smart plumage with a collar, black tie and a glossy black cap makes them look too official, too authoritative. And that bright yellow chest?

NURSING HOME

Far too garish for the garden. Their behaviour isn’t exactly endearing either. Great Tits are the bullies on the bird table. They’ll aggressively assert their authority and violently peck at other birds as they plunder the peanuts. When a house-hunting Great Tit can’t find a suitable hole to nest in, it’ll simply evict a Blue Tit and move in. Their dominance is also heard in spring when their two-note song, ‘Tea-cher! Tea-cher! Tea-cher!’ rings out through our woodlands. It was this ‘Tea-cher!’ that taught me my first lesson in bird song identification; an easily recognisable two-note war cry used to proclaim the tit’s territory. But I was soon to learn that not everything was how it seemed. Each male actually has an average of four different songs, which can be sung at three different tempos. This varied repertoire is a sly Beau Geste trick employed to trick other Great Tits into thinking that a woodland is more crowded than it really is. The birds who know the most tunes secure larger territories and breed more successfully. And it’s a trick that fools me each year too; if I don’t recognise a bird call in the woods it’s always a Great Tit. Through aggression and deceit, these birds have successfully established an empire that spreads from England to China. And it’s from the far-flung corners of this empire that we’ve recently received reports of some rather worrying behaviour. From Finland came news of a group of Great Tits changing their vegan diet of seeds and nuts to something much more meaty: other birds. In Hungary, scientists made the chilling discovery of a population of Great Tits which have developed a taste for the brains of hibernating bats. Sure, these are isolated incidents at the moment but with human society plunging rapidly towards the abyss and an army of Great Tits acquiring a taste for blood and brains, is it unreasonable to hypothesise a post-apocalyptic future where humans are at the mercy of plagues of zombie Great Tits? Close your windows people, they’re coming for us!

In just a few short months Seaford has once again outdone itself in welcoming a number of displaced Ukrainians to Seaford and helping them start their lives in our lovely town and the surrounding area. Many of you have put on and attended events to raise funds to enable all this to happen and we want to thank you on everyone’s behalf. These funds have, amongst other things, enabled the following things to be done:

• support for hosts to equip their home for additional people staying with them

• essential books and equipment for English language classes provided by volunteer teachers

• reimburs volunteers for petrol costs for providing transport to Seaford from the airport or to the Visa Application Centre (Croydon!)

FORSEAFORDUKRAINE

• financial support for essentials such as food until they have jobs or are in receipt of pension or other benefits • grants for essential clothing for Ukrainian guests including school uniforms

• occasional outings to give guests an opportunity to practise their English and have some relaxing time away from the everyday worries of the situation in their homeland.

• helping everyone to celebrate Ukrainian National Day on 24th August.

Some people have now moved on to jobs and friends elsewhere, but we continue to support those who remain in the areas.

• provision of a community space for guests and hosts to meet each other

On behalf of the Seaford for Ukraine Steering group, please accept my heartfelt thanks.

BOOK

Friends of Bishopstone Station in conjunction with GTR, Network Rail, the Railway Heritage trust, and in partnership with South East Communities Rail Partnership, are now in the exciting final stages of finishing Phase 1 of this unique Grade II listed Art Deco building. Five years ago we adopted the station, always with restoration being the main aim and bringing it back to its Art Deco glory. We then found ourselves in a position where the Old Parcel room became vacant, and now we are going to lease this space creating a muchneeded community hub for the local residents and wider community. A great deal of work has gone in to this in order for it to be fully functional. Fundraising began, and with the Community fully supporting us, we plan to open late September 2022. The Community Hub can be used for many purposes such as a drop-in centre, a place for Care for Carers, art and exercise classes, education, history events, simple IT training, coffee mornings, knit and stitch, a meeting room – the list goes on and all ideas are welcome. In September we are kicking off with the Artwave project followed by a formal launch. Interested parties wishing to donate, or book the Old Parcel room should contact us on: Facebook: Friends of Bishopstone Station Email: friendsofbishopstonestation@yahoo.com Tel: 07501 672424.

Second-hand kitchens: Purchasing a used or ex-display kitchen reduces waste and potentially saves you thousands of pounds.

At Newberry Tully, we’ve always been in the business of helping people in Seaford move for the long haul... ...Since 1987 to be exact. This approach helps us see the big picture, not just of the local property market, but the urgent need for us all to live more sustainably. We understand some people won’t be thinking of moving but will be considering improving their home. So, we’ve researched these six ideas to help you make home improvements with the planet’s health in mind.

Bigger spending, bigger savings: Some of the more costly ways to improve your home’s

Stephen Newberry Andrew Tully sustainability can be the ones that save you the most money in the long run. Think new windows, solar power and updating your home’s insulation. We installed solar panels to our office back in 2014 along with several other environmentally friendly changes to the way we run our business.

Think before you buy: Do you really need to purchase new items and materials? What can you reuse? Can something be upcycled before you head out to the shops? You’d be amazed what happens when you shift your mindset from replacing to reusing.

Keep it local: When buying materials and items to improve your home, aim to buy locally. This reduces emissions and often supports the town’s economy. Do your best: Even by doing just one of the above, you’ll be doing something positive for Seaford, the planet, and our future generations. So don’t beat yourself up for not being a green god or goddess. Just do what you can, when you can, with what you have. Thanks for reading, Stephen and Andrew Estate Agents

Use low VOC paints: Paints that use low volatile organic compounds (VOC) are better for you and the environment, because they often contain far fewer chemicals. The range of these paints is growing all the time.

We are now wallowing in statistics, lovely Neighbours, and the good news is that crime in Seaford is definitely on a downward trend. There is tangible evidence that the named PCSOs actively involved in our community are having a real impact on ASB and petty crimes, and as a result, Seaford becomes less attractive by the day to would-be miscreants. Following on from last month’s statistics, this month we have a close look at what’s what in Seaford North. If you missed the data for Seaford Central and East, you can see it here https:// issuu.com/seafordscene).

Much the same as Seaford East, crime in Seaford North is generally low and in homage to Chris Whitty, et al, this time we include the crime R2 number and a trend line which is super encouraging – firstly because we all know what an R2 number is (sort of), and that anything under 1 is a good thing. Seaford North scores 0.4773, which indicates that crime is dropping and is less than half of what it used to be two years ago. Of course, the caveat is that these statistics reflect reported crimes and once again this exercise underlines the importance of reporting every crime.

OCTOBER

Cody had the idea of a float plane: one which could operate on both land and water. It was whilst testing such a plane that Cody crashed, and was killed. His funeral was at the Military Cemetery in Aldershot (the only civilian ever to be buried there) and the funeral cortege was watched by a huge crowd, such was his fame and respect for him.

DEADLINE: TUESDAY 6th SEPTEMBER

Please recycle this magazine when you have finished with it.

The speaker at our most recent meeting was one of our own members, Bill McNaught, who gave us the biography of Samuel Franklin Cody, best known as one of the pioneer aviators in the country. Samuel Cody was born in Texas in 1867, and often capitalised on what was assumed to be a family relationship with Buffalo ‘Wild’ Bill Cody. In fact, there was no relationship: Samuel Franklin’s surname at birth was ‘Cowdery’, and he only later changed it to Cody. He was a skilled horse rider, an accurate marksman, and had even spent time prospecting for gold. He performed in Wild West shows, and later had a show and circus of his own. In 1890 he set sail for Liverpool with his wife, and they set up Wild West shows at Olympia (sometimes on roller skates!). His wife suffered a long period of illness, and returned to America. Samuel continued his show business activities, including writing five plays: not bad for a boy who had never been to school. Around the beginning of the Twentieth Century, Samuel developed an interest in kites, and evolved the concept of a string of kites whose combined ‘lift’ could raise a man off the ground. This, he felt, had military possibilities in terms of forward observation on the battlefield. He put his ideas to the Government but they showed no interest. However, his persistence eventually paid off: he was offered a job as an instructor at the Balloon Factory in Farnborough. Cody experimented by putting an engine into a kite, and then, following the success of the German Zeppelin airships, the Balloon Factory built a dirigible airship, utilising large teams of women to sew the fabric panels together. Cody flew the airship to London, and tried to land at Buckingham Palace, but settled for Crystal Palace instead! Cody was given £50 to build an aeroplane, which he did, and managed to fly it 70 yards on Laffan’s Plain at Farnborough. Several of his subsequent flights ended up in crashes, until Cody realised that if you want to turn an aircraft you also have to bank it, otherwise it stalls. Shortly after these early flights, the Government decided there was no future in powered flight, so Cody was sacked and the project was closed! Nevertheless, Cody continued his activities privately. Also, around this time Cody became a British Citizen. Amongst other activities, he won the Michelin Trophy for the longest flight: 190 miles, at the end of which he was frozen! Despite the Government’s earlier dismissal of powered flight, they formed the Royal Flying Corps in 1911.

Well, as Rabbie Burns once said: ‘The best-laid plans of mice and men...’ Shortly after composing the August report last month, I caught COVID and was not able to attend the July meeting; however I gather it was well Inattended.September we are scheduled to hold another Members’ meeting on subjects S, T and U, so that should be entertaining. Hopefully someone (David, our Secretary?) will display stamps of the Ukraine. This is a topical area, unfortunately, and the stamps issued, and produced but never issued, mirror the complex history of the country. Many old collections have stamps printed by an embryonic Ukrainian state around 1919/20, after World War 1 was over, and the Bolsheviks attempted to unify Russia into the Soviet Union. Ukrainians based mainly in Paris however attempted to create a Free Ukraine and ordered postage stamps in large quantities. These often incorporated the Ukrainian symbol of the trident, still to be seen on flags and in other places in Ukraine today. These stamps however never reached the country, but some others were subsequently issued by a Communist regional government in the early 1920s before USSR issues became available. In 1941, Nazi Germany largely occupied the whole of Ukraine and created a puppet state. Stamps displaying the head of Hitler were overprinted for use in Ukraine until it was liberated by Soviet forces in 1944/45. Subsequently Soviet issues were used until the collapse of the USSR in 1991, when for the first time issues were commonly available by the Ukraine postal authorities for sale locally. Visitors are welcome to the September meeting at Seaford Constitutional Club on Wednesday the 14th, 7.15pm for 7.30pm. The club has a bar with light refreshments.

MOIST

Method

Preheat oven to 175°C. Prepare an 8 inch / 21cm springform pan by coating the sides with sunflower oil or butter and lining the base with greaseproof paper. Place the sugar and eggs in a large bowl and beat with a mixer until light and fluffy and increased in volume. Sift the baking powder and flour together then add to the mixture in the bowl a little at a time along with the softened butter. Continue to mix until completely blended, then stir in the yoghurt or sour cream. In a food processor or blender, process the whole orange until it is almost pureed. Add this blended orange to the cake mixture along with the vanilla extract and stir until evenly combined, then pour the batter into the prepared tin. Bake for 50-60 minutes, depending on your oven. The cake is ready when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes, then remove the side of the springform pan. Prepare the glaze by heating the sugar and the orange juice in a saucepan, and allow to simmer for a few minutes, until the liquid has a syrupy consistency. Skewer the top of the cake a few times, then spoon and brush glaze over the top of the cake and allow to cool completely before cutting. 105

Especially thought provoking was the painting of the airman, soldier and sailor kneeling near the altar as these paintings were undertaken in the mid 1940’s and the war was a very recent event. I would advise anyone to visit Berwick Church it is in such a wonderful setting.

It treats the whole person: Mind, Body and Spirit.

Let me start by saying that this is a long book, but in the deft hands of Boyne it is neither weighty nor stodgy. It’s a a book about the life of a fictional man, Cyril Avery, and it begins before he’s even born, with his pregnant mother cast out of her strict catholic family and fleeing from her hometown. Cyril is adopted but struggles to find his place in a loveless family. He is gay and illegitimate, born in Ireland at the wrong time. This story weaves his major life events with world events such as the AIDS crisis, 9/11, and the ongoing prejudice towards gay men. We follow Cyril from Dublin to Amsterdam to New York and back to Ireland. Throughout his journey the reader is privy to his inner and outer struggles, which serve to heighten the confusion, anger and shame that define his existence. But this is not some handwringing doom saga. Boyne brings a wicked playfulness to Cyril’s selfdeprecating wit, which commands both affection and Throughoutempathy.the book, various new characters appear at intervals, and their stories intersect and intertwine with Cyril’s via a series of coincidences, which on the surface might appear contrived, but when the reader reflects on the characters in their own life and the coincidences that brought them together, suddenly make sense.

From the opening ‘hook’ to the closing paragraph you’ll be rooting for Cyril, and you’ll laugh and cry along the way. In the touching Afterword, Boyne admits that although Cyril and his life are fictional there are many of the author’s own lived experiences included in the plot. The book is all the richer for it.

SEAFORD MAYOR HOSTS THE ANNUAL CIVIC SERVICE 2022

The event was well attended by regional and local dignitaries, including: the Vice Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Sarah Stonor DL; Freemen of the Town, Mr Laurie Holland, Mr Keith Blackburn and his wife; The Serjeant at Mace, Mr Peter White; the Chairman of East Sussex County Council, Cllr Pragnell; and Vice Chair of East Sussex County Council, Cllr Galley, the Mayor of Brighton, Cllr Lizzy Deane; the Mayor of Eastbourne, Cllr Pat Rodohan; the Mayor of Peacehaven, Cllr Lucy-Jo Symonds; the Deputy Mayor of Newhaven, Cllr Pinky McLean-Knight; the Mayor of Crowborough, and Cllr David Neeve. Other guests included representatives of the emergency services, local service organisations and local charity representatives from the Mayor’s chosen Charities, Members of Seaford Quakers, and the public.

Parts of the service were live streamed onto the Seaford Town Council Facebook Page, with the full service recorded from the Baptist Church, available on Seaford Town Council’s YouTube channels.

With thanks to the generosity of the congregation, a retiring collection of £239.80 was collected and shared equally between the three Mayor’s charities; Seahaven Storehouse, Waves of Seaford and Refuge.

‘Many thanks to all of those who helped with the refreshments in the hall afterwards, it was wonderful to meet new people, and introducing them to each other. Thanks to Morrisons for their donation of some of the food and drinks. A lot of hard work and planning went into a successful civic service, thanks to everyone involved in making the service a success.’

I also talked about the lovely countryside and the Seafront that we are surrounded by, the various community groups, the places of interest, the importance of supporting local businesses. I spoke about the charities that I had chosen and why, along with my chosen theme Healthy Living.

Mayor of Seaford, Cllr Olivia Honeyman, officially celebrated her induction as the 2022 – 2023 Mayor at a Civic Service, hosted by Seaford Baptist Church on 31st July. The Service was opened by Seaford Town Crier, Peter White, who acted as Mace Bearer and bore Seaford Town Mace before the Mayor of Seaford and VIP guests. The Service was conducted by Members of Seaford Quakers, led by Ali Campbell, an elder at Seaford Quakers. Many local dignitaries, representatives from charities and members of the public attended and supported the Mayor’s first official event. The service included: five brief readings on the theme of Service and Civic Responsibility; three readings came from the Quaker faith and practise book: Faith and Practice; two readings from the Bible (each reading was followed by a brief period of silent reflection in the Quaker manner); two short conversations between our new Mayor with representatives from Seahaven Storehouse and Waves Seaford, on how their work exemplifies today’s themes; a Mayor’s Address; refreshments served afterwards in the Church Hall.

Town Crier Peter White congratulated Cllr Olivia Honeyman on a successful and unique service. The Mayor said: ‘We chose the theme of Service and Civic responsibility, as this was appropriate for the role of being a Cllr and Mayor. The service was very well supported. I interviewed members from Seaford Storehouse and Waves Seaford, to enable the congregations to learn about the charities’ work and spoke about Refuge in my Mayor’s address.

A little praise now and then makes us feel appreciated, boosts our feel-good hormones, and increases our motivation. Praising children can inspire them to be more persistent and co-operative.

Social-comparison praise sets up competition and inevitably sometimes another child will be better, which can be demoralising if a child’s self-worth is derived from always being the best. It can also lead to a child becoming a poor loser.

No one is suggesting a spur of the moment ‘Good job!’ and a high five now and then are bad, but it’s worth considering that by being more intentional about praise we can influence the way our kids feel about themselves for the better.

l Kids need support and encouragement all the time – not just when they’ve won the race or scored an A+. They need to know they have your support – especially when they lost or failed. It is the overall warmth and supportiveness of their family relationships which counts.

‘Spare the rod and spoil the child’ is a phrase I heard often growing up. My father’s concern that if he praised me too much I would become full of myself, or overconfident meant that praise was in short supply in our house. It led to feelings of inadequacy and a tendency to seek approval and people-please.

Jamie Maxfield

Recent studies on the brain indicate that we respond to social approval positively and that praise is important for a child’s development. But not all praise is created equal. Some types of praise are helpful, while others have a negative effect. So how do we know what sort of praise to use?

l Praise things the child can control, rather than ability.

If your child is naturally gifted at the piano for example, instead of saying, ‘Oh wow, you’re so talented,’ when he/she plays, say something like, ‘Wow, that piece is sounding good now, I can hear the difference from when you first started to learn it. Your hard work is paying off.’ The child can control how hard he/she works at her practice; not how naturally able he/she is at playing the piano. This approach stops them getting the message that talent is something people either have or don’t have, which might leave them feeling helpless when they slip up. Mistakes must mean you aren’t talented right?

OCTOBERTUESDAYDEADLINE:6thSEPT

l Don’t praise achievements that come too easily. Either the child assumes you are clueless about how easy the task is, or they assume you have low expectations of their abilities.

l Don’t use insincere praise. By the time a child is old enough to analyse belief or motive (generally around five years of age) they know when praise is deserved. If they feel it’s being given falsely they might think you feel sorry for them. They might also think, ‘I can’t trust you.’

l Avoid extreme praise! ‘Oh, my goodness you are the best at this. You are amazing. You’re super clever and talented.’ Even if we’re sincere in our effusiveness at that moment and our child believes us, who on earth could live up to this impossible standard every single day. It sets the child up to worry about future performance…’Oh heck, now I need to get 100% in every single exam forever…If I don’t, they’ll be disappointed.’ These kids might back off from new challenges because they aren’t certain they’ll be the best. They don’t want to risk failure and loss of approval.

94 Please mention Seaford Scene when contacting advertisers IN PRAISE OF PRAISE

l Avoid praise that compares a child to others.

Seaford is renaturing, thanks in part to the new mowing regime introduced by Seaford Town Council, supported by On The Verge and other local environmental groups. Parts of the Sea Meadows and the Salts have been given back to nature and left unmown throughout the spring and summer. The change is stunning!

SEAFORDRENATURING

Photos by Judy Pepper, from top: Spear Thistle on Martello Field; Common Blue Butterfly on Martello Field.

Just look at Pump Field (the one nearest to Seaford Head). Last year over 40 different types of flowering plant were found by botanical surveyors, and this year they expect to find more – quite a challenge for local sixth formers following in their footsteps! More plant variety means more insect variety. An On the Verge member recently saw over 20 butterflies of five different species in just 15 minutes, all feeding on the ample nectar supplies now available to them, thanks to reduced Meanwhilemowing. at Martello Field, common coastal plants such as Thrift and Strawberry Clover are back where they belong – in fields by the coast! And just six weeks after the new mowing regime began, a single Pyramidal Orchid bloomed in the Covers, the fields straddling College ThroughoutRoad. the town, residents have allowed their verges to run riot, whilst gardeners hand over sections of their lawns and vegetable patches to nature, increasing biodiversity by providing homes and food for our beleaguered wildlife. But those renatured areas need care. They must be mown in Autumn and cuttings removed if they are to flourish next Spring. Removing the cuttings mimics the work of grazers, such as rabbits, who would naturally remove grass over the summer. If residents and the Town Council continue to work together, that single orchid on College Road will herald the future and Seaford will become part of the natural community that is the South Downs.

Seaford Museum CHAMBERS: SEAFORD’S REMARKABLE HEADTEACHER

per month!

There is a touching reminder of the devastating loss of life in the 1914 – 18 war: ‘We are holding a Memorial Service this afternoon in Honour of the 34 laddies from this school who have given their lives for us.’ (November 1918)

A Sad Memorial Service

Advertise SEAFORD SCENE £29 8,000 Seaford

Debilitating illnesses often caused the school to close and is a serious theme in Miss Chambers’ notes. Her comments provide a much wider and colourful picture of the school life during those first four decades. ‘December 20 1911 The children are to break up tomorrow afternoon, but first they are to secure a beautiful toy and sweetmeat from a magnificent Xmas Tree. The teachers have dressed 40 dolls at no small amount of time and trouble, but I feel they will be repaid when they see the happy recipients tomorrow.’

Miss Amy Chambers was for 39 years the first headmistress of Seaford’s first state school in Church Street. During all that time she kept a School Log – a daily diary – that provides us today with an exceptional example of living history from 1890 to 1928. These school logs record Miss Chambers’ work, representing some of the highlights of the school years – some of them joyous, some of them sad., but all expressing the care, the warmth, and the love that Miss Chambers had for ‘our little ones’. Kevin Gordon has collected and edited the most poignant of the entries in the logs and with a foreword by Ron Vince, and these have now been published by Seaford Museum in a booklet on sale in the Martello Tower. Miss Chambers, at the age of 21, was appointed to run the newly built Church Street Infants’ School from January 1890. Within only two weeks of the school’s opening, the headmistress wrote: ‘The school closed today for two weeks on account of the prevailing illnesses among the children.’ From the height of Victorian England, to the Boer War, the passing of Queen Victoria and the awfulness of the Great War itself, Miss Chambers kept a meticulous and detailed record of events in her school and Seaford at large.

The booklet is a charming and poignant view the world of a schoolteacher from 100 years ago, and well worth reading.

In September 1923 Miss Chambers wryly reported: ‘A circus has visited the town today and, as usual, it has made havoc with the attendance.’ There is joy, sadness and humanity in Miss Chambers logs, right up to her last entry in 1928: ‘October 31st 1928 I sincerely regret to state that I am relinquishing the post of Head Teacher in this School today after 39 years of very happy work.’ Amy Chambers retired from teaching, and went on to be elected to the on Seaford Urban District Council, serving for nine years before passing away in 1939 at the age of 71.

The latest in vehicle technology

Busier roads mean we need to use more of our concentration to monitor the traffic around us. Tightly enforced speed regulations mean we also need to watch our dashboard dials to keep on the right side of the law. Unfortunately, this means we have to take our eyes off the road frequently to read the gauges. Add in a Sat Nav, and a lot of our mental bandwidth could be diverted at any one time. Enter the Heads-Up display. These have been around for while and are fitted as standard on some premium cars. But third-party units are widely available and easy to install. A Heads-Up display is a small, transparent unit which is mounted on top of the dashboard, in front of the driver. It displays information exactly where you need it – directly in the line of sight. Drivers get all the important information such as speed, warning signals and indicator arrows for navigation without having to look down to the instrument cluster or the secondary display, hence the name.

There are a few types of Heads-Up display. Some project on to your windscreen, and these can be harder to see in some lighting conditions. Some have a semi-reflective sheet of glass that’s designed to reflect the display, whilst allowing you to see through it, very much like in fighter aircraft. Most Heads-Up units plug in to the OBD (On Board Diagnostics) port in your car to get their information, and some models can connect to your phone and Sat Nav which allows them to provide even more features in your line of vision. Prices start at under £100 so you can boost your driving safety while channelling your inner Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Tom Hancock

The tea was excellent, and those attending had a very enjoyable time. Their laughter could be heard throughout the hotel! The July Inner Wheel meeting was held at Diella’s Restaurant in Seaford. Immediate past Presidents Eileen and Patricia thanked members for their support during the year and especially their help for raising an impressive amount of money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice –the President’s charity. Dr Mary Morris was presented with the President’s Collar and President’s Bars, and wished well for her new year of Presidency. This will be her second time as President, as she also presided in 2014/15. Mary then thanked Eileen and Patricia for their year in Office and presented them with gifts from club Seafordmembers.InnerWheel looks forward to another year of social activities within the club, as well as those in the surrounding District associations and helping to raise money for various charities.

At the end of July Seaford u3a membership forms were sent out to new members and those planning to renew their membership. The membership year started on 1st August and u3a events start in September with some of the old favourites and some new ideas. Membership is only £10 per year and represents excellent value. This month, the ever popular coffee morning will be on Wednesday 21st September from 10am until noon at the Con Club, Crouch Lane, Seaford. This is free to members and those intending to join – limited to two visits to the monthly coffee morning for non-members. Many who are becoming members for the first time experienced the coffee morning as their introduction to Seaford u3a and received a friendly welcome. There is no need to book – just come along. Between September 2022 and May 2023 there are 30 groups being run by Seaford u3a in members’ homes or in hired halls. Those in members’ homes quickly become full as they are small, usually only about 6 people, but those in halls can take more members. Subject groups range through art, music, history and languages to table games such as Scrabble and Bridge, and yet more. It is likely that more groups will be added as the membership year progresses, so those members who are unable to join a group of their choice now might well have a chance to do so later on. The ‘hall’ groups pay a small charge towards hire of the venue. These groups are not ‘taught’ in the conventional sense. They are led by a member as group leader who has an interest in the subject, sometimes because of a previous involvement in a professional capacity, but sometimes simply because of an interest in a subject. There is a strong focus on member-involvement with discussion and shared enjoyment, all part of the ‘learning together’ ethos of u3a. In addition members can attend talks on a wide variety of subjects by other members keen to share their hobbies, interests or know-how. These are held at the Downs Leisure Centre and run weekly from 1st September until March 2023. There is a small charge. Any member can attend without prior notice. Also at the Downs there are seasonal talks when an outside speaker will entertain members. The last one

Seaford u3a News in the previous series was given by Harry Venning, the cartoonist formerly from The Guardian newspaper, who with a few deft strokes on the drawing board made members laugh and admire his talent. For foodies the pub lunches will continue monthly at the White Lion, and the World Cuisine informal group will continue to explore the more exotic food offerings in the locality. There is a possibility of a meet-up for members interested in Cinema Outings, and there are also the very popular outings for members to places of interest. In September members will be taking a coach trip to Buckingham Palace. The AGM will take place on Thursday 13th October at the Downs for members only, followed by refreshments and a talk by an invited speaker. For more information about Seaford u3a see the website www.u3asites.org.uk/seaford. To find out about membership email seafordu3a@gmail.com, sending your postal address for a welcome pack.

SUNGLASSES

Category 1 is a light tint, usually yellow, which allows 4380% of visible light through and is best for overcast days.

Sunglasses have two main purposes, to dim visible light, and to protect us from UV. In the UK, all sunglasses have to block at least 99% of UV. Counterintuitively the darkness of the tint does NOT relate to how much UV is blocked. Tints fall into five categories: Category 0 means no tint or a light tint, which allows 80-100% of visible light through.

120 Please mention Seaford Scene when contacting advertisers

Email: fran@seafordscene.co.uk Tel: 01273 710793 Deadline for the October issue is 6th September.

Category 3 is the most common for sunglasses. These tints are nearly all grey or brown and allow 8-18% of visible light through.

Louise Addison

Category 4 is a very dark tint, which allows just 3-8% of visible light through. These are ideal in mountains or desert conditions where the sun’s glare is intense.

If you have a category 3 lens at the darker end and a tinted windscreen be aware that this can tip you into category 4. At the time of writing the fine for driving in category 4 sunglasses at any time, or any sunglasses at night, is Polarised£2,500.sunglasses block the glare from water or wet roads. They are comfortable lenses to wear, and many people love the colour clarity associated with them. However, it is useful to note that they might impact how well you can see your Sat Nav or heads-up display (a transparent display in some new cars which presents data at windscreen level).

Did you know that autumn and spring are potentially as dangerous as summer for our sight? The sun is lower in the sky in the northern hemisphere so more likely to shine directly into our eyes. Good sun specs are essential, but which ones should you choose? And are more expensive ones better than cheap ones?

Because of the regulations surrounding sunglasses, price has little bearing on UV protection as long as you buy from a reputable outlet. More expensive might buy you designer style, better glare performance due to better quality lenses, and a better fit and finish, but not extra UV protection. The best way to make sure that your sunglasses comply with all regulations is to look for the CE mark, or the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) mark, which replaces it from next year. So, indulge your inner rock star this autumn and sport a pair of fabulous sun specs. Your eyes will thank you.

Light is part of the electromagnetic spectrum. The visible part of the spectrum is small, but it’s the part that our eyes can detect. UV on the other hand is invisible to human eyes. It has a shorter wavelength and is higher energy, and this is why it causes damage. It can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and skin cancers which affect the eyelids and surrounding tissues.

Everything you need to know

WOULD YOU LIKE MORE CUSTOMERS?

Category 2 is a medium tint, which can be any colour and provides good glare protection. It allows 18-43% of visible light through.

The depth of a tint is personal preference but if sold as sunglasses they must still block 99% of UV. In the UK it is illegal to drive at night or twilight in all tints apart from a category 0 lens. In addition, it is illegal to drive in a category 4 tint, even during the day. Category 4 tints should be labelled clearly, with an appropriate warning.
