Olympic sailor backs disability charity campaign


ir Ben Ainslie, the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, has thrown his support behind a Sussex charity’s fundraising campaign to build some of the very best facilities for sailors with disabilities in the UK. The ‘Door to Shore’ campaign aims to raise £538,000 which will allow Sussex Yacht Club, in partnership with the charity Sussex Sailability, to create a fully accessible centre of sailing excellence in Shoreham. Sussex Yacht Club established the charity Sussex Sailability in 2001, to enable people with disabilities the opportunity to take up the sport. It’s now thriving and its sessions are always popular. Terry Kinch, the Commodore of Sussex Yacht Club and Trustee of Sussex Sailability said, “Our current club building is soon to be demolished to make way for flood defences to protect Shoreham. We could have simply rebuilt our HQ as it stands now, but our membership was absolutely determined that it would be designed with accessibility at its heart. “They’re busily fundraising to cover the additional costs that will be needed to provide the very best possible kit and facilities. So, we have launched our ‘Door to Shore’ campaign with a goal of reaching £538,000. Its name reflects our aim, for people to be able to access sailing with the freedom of total independence from their front door to the point that they actually get out on the water. “Our first ambitious target is to get to £225,000 before the end of this year, which will cover the costs of the essential ramps that we need to enable access to the new building. This will only happen with the help of our wonderful local community and the sailing community. “So, it’s incredible that we have the support of an Olympian for this campaign. Sir Ben Ainslie is a hero to many of our members, so it means a tremendous amount to all of us to have his backing.”

Terry added, “I believe that the feeling of freedom when you are out on the water is transformative and we want many more people, with all kinds of disabilities, to have the confidence to try sailing. So, the new facilities that will be enabled by this fundraising campaign will definitely make a real difference to real lives.” Olympic Gold Medallist Sir Ben Ainslie CBE said, “I am delighted to support the Sussex Sailability ‘Door to Shore’ fundraising campaign; which will enable the building of brand-new facilities to allow disabled sailors full independent access to the sport. “Sailing has given me so many opportunities and I am therefore keen for as many people as possible to have the opportunity to share in that passion. “It’s all about accessibility; levelling the playing field to give everyone an equal chance of catching that sailing bug. It’s essential that sailors with disabilities have access to the right kit and facilities to be able to do that. I wish Sussex Sailability the very best of luck in their fundraising towards this goal.” Work has already begun on the new clubhouse and facilities, which have been designed by specialist architects in conjunction with the charity Changing Places. The new building will be opened in 2020. For further details of the Door to Shore Fundraising Campaign, or to donate please visit www.justgiving. com/campaign/Doortoshore

Approval for major investment in Shoreham pool


which means staff have to walk through the changing rooms to access a portacabin office. Revised plans, which were unanimously backed by the Council’s Planning Committee this week (Monday 9th September 2019), will see a new single-storey extension built on the site. This will include an additional changing area of 16 cubicles, two of which will be suitable for families and those with disabilities. A new office will also be created. In a report presented to Adur & Worthing Councils’ Joint Strategic Committee this week, it was noted that a failure to fund the works could lead to the pool being closed, causing financial and reputational issues to the operators. Senior councillors were also informed the delaying aspects of the work would result in a greater total cost. After discussing this information, councillors approved the additional funding and support for the scheme with work due to start within the current financial year.

thriving community swimming pool is set to be upgraded thanks to major investment by Adur District Council. Wadurs, which is Council owned and managed by Impulse Leisure, is benefiting from increased attendances and record delivery of lessons with more than 900 pupils registered in the swim school. This is despite the facility in Kingston Broadway, Shoreham, having small cramped changing facilities which cause logistical issues for staff and visitors. The Council had previously allocated £120,000 towards creating new enlarged changing rooms at the popular pool, which would include family-friendly and ‘changing places’ facilities. But further investigations have shown that more investment is needed as the boiler and air handling units need replacing. To help the pool continue to prosper and ensure the work takes place at the same time, councillors have now agreed to step in and provide extra funding to ensure the £450,000 improvements can go ahead as planned. Councillor Neil Parkin, Leader of Adur District Council, said: “In the 25 years it has been open, Wadurs has proved to be a popular and much-valued resource for people across our communities.” “Releasing this funding will enable the works to place within the coming months. While there will inevitably be some short term disruption, the end result will be a muchimproved facility which will offer greater opportunities for people of all ages to learn a valuable life skill and keep fit.” Despite being popular with people from across the district, the pool - which opened in 1993 - has a congested layout

Sussex Quilters’ Charity Quilt


urther to the success of the last exhibition in 2015, the Sussex Quilters are once again holding an exhibition on 12th October 2019 at Shoreham Community Centre, Shoreham-BySea, West Sussex BN43 5WU. The exhibition will be open between 10.00 and 4.00 with the Charity Raffle being drawn at 3.30. Entrance to the exhibition will cost £2, there is disability access, a café and parking is available on site. Once again the Sussex Quilters are raising money for the Kent, Sussex and Surrey Air Ambulance Service. The group has designed and made a modern double bed quilt (approx. 90” x 72”). The Air Ambulance has a particular relevance to the group as in 2014 the husband of one of our members was involved in a serious cycle accident on Worthing’s cycle path. The seriousness of his injuries were such that the Air Ambulance was called to airlift him to St George’s Hospital in London. It was only with the extraordinary care and dedication given by the local ambulance service, the Police and the Air Ambulance service that I am delighted to be able to say that he has since made an excellent recovery. However, his family will be forever indebted to the Air Ambulance Service. The cost of the raffle tickets will be £1

Sussex Quilters’ meet on the first Wednesday of the month, 10.00 – 12.00 midday at Southwick Community Centre. For further information contact Margaret Holden 01273 454971 or Angela Avis 01273 595369 8

Autumn Clear-up


ell here we are in October already with the clocks about to change and the shorter days definitely with us. All in all it’s been a pretty good summer and the start of Autumn has been fairly warm and in the main still surprisingly dry. It’s time to start slowly battening down the hatches across the garden and getting ready for the Winter and also to look forward to Spring. Rather than a spring clean, an autumn clear-up throughout the garden will pay dividends, both in keeping the garden healthy and making it look tidy through the months ahead, when there may be less opportunity to get out into the garden. I always think it pays to be fairly ruthless when it comes to clearing out. Get rid of any old rubbish that is

clogging up corners of the garden and the same goes for the beds. If there are plants which really haven’t performed or are in the wrong place, then don’t be afraid to move them or get rid of them. A good tidy up through the beds will pay dividends as well. Once again dig out plants that are no longer worth keeping and give the surface of the soil a good rake through to remove dead leaves. This will help keep diseases down. It’s also a good time to start getting some extra compost forked into the beds, or for an easier option, simply rake the compost across the top of the beds. You’ll be amazed how much of it gets pulled down into the soil by your friendly garden worms. Carry out autumn pruning on shrubs that need it. Don’t be afraid to prune back hard. Most plants will respond well and put on better growth next year. Make sure you remove all the waste you generate from the beds. Once the beds are clear it will leave you with a much better idea of what new planting you can fit into the bed. It’s also a good time for many shrubs to be divided. That simply means that plants that have overgrown into clumps, can be lifted and slit into smaller plants by using a sharp spade. It allows the original plant to grow better and you suddenly have two plants for the price of one. In fact, it’s a good trick you can use with many plants that you buy in garden centres. Always keep your eyes out for ones that can be easily divided, then you really will buy one and get one free! Put the plants back into the beds with plenty of compost and water, and it’s surprising how effective the major surgery can be in producing much better results next year On the subject of a good clear out, give the greenhouse and the shed a good clean out now. This is especially important with the greenhouse. Once emptied give all the surfaces a good wash down. It only needs a wash with hot water and soap and it will transform the place. Not only will it let more light in, but it Is remarkably effective at killing off many of the diseases that lurk around over winter. If the work in the shed and the greenhouse are done now, it means you will have a clear and tidy space to work in the colder wetter months. As always in the garden, it’s about enjoying what you have now, but looking head to make life easy and keeping the garden in a state where you can enjoy it in the future. It never ends, but then again we would get bored if it did!  ark Oakley M Any Garden Limited

Backlighting and Silhouettes


he West Pier in Brighton was officially opened on October 6th 1866, so for the October publication of Inside magazine, it seemed appropriate to write about this much photographed local landmark. Many images are published online of the skeletal West Pier set against a sunset. Indeed, photographers can be seen by the dozen at twilight all snapping the same scene. I realise that sunset pictures are extremely popular but I feel that, in most colour images, the viewer’s eye is drawn towards the boldest colour which means that a glowing sky dominates the picture thus demoting the black West Pier structure to secondary interest within the image. I always admire photographers who seek to find other ways to depict familiar subjects. My photograph with the figure was taken during a gale force wind and shows a silhouetted figure battling against the elements, giving the scene a sense of place and allowing the weather to create a little drama. My colour image uses repetition of frames. The railings, the bike and even the grid on the bottom right mirror the framework of the West Pier in the background. I was fortunate to join a small tour of the West Pier in 2002 during Brighton Festival when a narrow walkway had been constructed from the upper promenade. We were told that the walkway was independently supported and did not rely on the stability of the decaying Pier. Six months later, however, a storm blew parts of the Pier into the sea taking the walkway with it! The tour was on a grey day which I found helpful in producing silhouetted photographs depicting the sadly dilapidated structure, now populated by pigeons. Silhouettes are easily created by exposing for the backlighting, thus underexposing whatever is in the foreground. They can be visually powerful, especially in monochrome images, drawing the viewer’s eye in the same way as bold colours can do, as mentioned previously. Removing detail simplifies the image and can add a graphic quality. It can allow the viewer to put their own interpretation on the scene. For some types of photographs, of course, detail is essential but for strong visual impact, a creative, non-factual reproduction can be artistically pleasing. Last month I wrote about working in themes and held a workshop at The Shoreham Centre to discuss some ideas on this. I have been asked to repeat this workshop for those who were unable to attend and I’m planning that as I write so it is


perhaps fitting that this article, although not strictly about themes, contains a triptych taken on the West Pier in 2002. They were shot on film, diffused under the enlarger and printed onto art paper and have been digitally scanned for reproduction.

PENSIONS & DIVORCE – it’s not just about the split When it comes to dividing up assets on divorce, pension rights can turn out to be one of the most valuable elements – and often the most overlooked. Last October, the Financial Conduct Authority reported that employee benefit consultancies were recording “the average size of transfer at over £250,000”. Such large values mean that pensions can currently represent the greatest asset to be considered as part of a divorce settlement. In the UK, there are currently three main ways of dealing with pensions on divorce: • Pension sharing: Under pension sharing the ex-spouse/civil partner’s pension(s) are shared, with a percentage (or specified amount in Scotland) allocated to the ex-spouse/partner. The shared element is either retained in the existing pension scheme or, more often, transferred to the ex-spouse’s/civil partner’s scheme. • Pension offsetting: This option involves offsetting the transfer value against other assets. For example, one spouse might gain a larger share of the family home in exchange for receiving no pension benefit from the other spouse. • Pension attachment orders (pension earmarking in Scotland): Under these arrangements, the ex-spouse/civil partner receives a proportion of the pension and/or lump sum when the divorced member starts to draw benefits (in Scotland it’s just the lump sum that can be earmarked).

If you are involved in a divorce, expert guidance is essential to achieve a fair pension outcome. Contact us now and we can: • Explain how each of the options would work for you. • Assess the transfer value that has been calculated for any benefits. • Advise on any pension transfers required. • Explain how you can improve your financial position at retirement. Our starting point is always the same: couples should ensure they have the full range of options, with the advantages and disadvantages of each, properly mapped out and explained to them. This is not just the case prior to any settlement being reached, but probably, in most cases, before any negotiation towards a settlement takes place. Arguably the issues and complexities involved with pensions in a divorce make this the most significant area of financial planning for individuals where obtaining specialist, qualified advice is a ‘must’. Having an appropriate, suitably qualified expert working alongside the legal advice is likely to be worth its weight in gold.

We can help in this complex and very personal field of financial planning – call us on 01273 774855 or email The value of your investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Investing in shares should be regarded as a long-term investment and should fit in with your overall attitude to risk and financial circumstances. Occupational pension schemes are regulated by The Pensions Regulator.

I truly love it, says nurse celebrating 50 years of care


aggie Morley celebrated half a century of caring and enjoying the job she “truly loves” this week. The specialist oncology nurse (pictured with flowers) was joined by more than 30 colleagues, past and present, to reflect on a 50-year career at Southlands and Worthing Hospital. “Nursing was my calling,” said Maggie, “and at 16 I left home to be closer to Southlands. I was homesick, but this was what I wanted to do.” A life-time later - from cadet nurse in 1969 to head and neck cancer specialist in 2019 - Maggie has no regrets. “I have no plans yet to retire,” she said. “I enjoy what I do too much! “I have made many wonderful friends and the hospitals are such a lovely place to work. “I love it because of the compassionate nature of all the staff, which is something that hasn’t changed.”

Maggie still recommend it? “I certainly would,” she said. “Go for it, grab the opportunity with both hands and enjoy it. “It’s a great feeling to wake up and come and do a job I truly love!” If you know anyone interested in nursing, please tell them about the new Nursing Associates training programme by going to: your-trust/careers/apprenticeships/ The trust also recently launched a Refer a Friend scheme, rewarding staff with up to £750 for helping recruit a qualified nurse, midwife or operating department practitioner. Please visit for details.

Maggie, who now works part-time at the age of 66, qualified as a registered nurse in 1974 and within four years she was ward sister of the ear, nose and throat department in Worthing. “I remember moving to the old Lister House, opposite Worthing Hospital, with other nurses,” said Maggie, “and the first thing we noticed was that it had a swimming pool! “We had a lot of parties, but we still worked hard, and enjoyed caring for our patients, first and foremost.” Nursing has, of course, changed immeasurably over the decades.

Why a Lion?


hen my husband died six years ago I realised that I needed to find something to fill my days. I come from a background of first nursing and then social work, so was used to being of service. I already have several hobbies: singing in two choirs, art and creative writing. I also have four grandchildren and three great grandchildren. But these are all things for me and not offering service. I worked in a charity shop for a year but, although it is a worthy pursuit, I found it tedious and not very rewarding. Of course I had heard of the Lions. I had even got donations from them for clients who needed a variety of essential things, but I didn’t really know what Lionism is or what it can do. A friend who was a member of Adur East Lions asked me if I would like to attend one of their meetings just to get an idea of what Lionism is and does. What I found was a group of some thirty like-minded people from all walks of life who made me very welcome. Lions don’t just give donations. They raise money by many different and fun ways in order to do so – the Donkey Derby, Boot Sales, Christmas markets and the Sleigh which goes round Southwick at Christmas. But the Lions is also a club which offers its members many social activities, meals out, coffee mornings and quizzes as well as the chance to dress up as an Elf to help Father Christmas! Who could resist that? Our local Lions Club is also part of a much wider network of clubs worldwide. I recently visited Kerala in India and as we drove through a small dusty

town there was a Lions Club banner! It is the variety of activities the the Lions offer that made me decide to join and I am now a full member. I can be of service in many different ways and get a great deal of satisfaction from being useful. I also get support and friendship from other members, something of great value when you live alone. So if you are wondering about the Lions don’t just sit there. Pick up the phone or email us or find us on Facebook. You don’t have to join as a full member straight away. You can simply register as a friend of the Lions, which means you can help at any activities you would like to contribute to as well as attend any club social activities but you will not take part in our monthly business meetings. Please come and join us. You won’t regret it!

St Barnabas House celebrates Hospice Care Week


his October, hospices across the country are joining together to celebrate Hospice Care Week – a week of action that aims to raise awareness and challenge perceptions of hospice care. It’s also your chance to get involved with your local hospice, St Barnabas House, who provide vital, compassionate and free care to local people with lifelimiting illnesses. Running from 7-13 October, the theme for this year’s Hospice Care Week is ‘This is what it takes’. You can expect a look behind the scenes at the less visible work that goes into funding and providing hospice care at St Barnabas, such as all the materials and equipment necessary, and the individuals whose dedication and expertise make it all possible. You can get involved in Hospice Care Week by registering for an event, getting in touch with the hospice about volunteering, making a donation, joining the St Barnabas Lottery or visiting one of the hospice’s 12 charity shops. Read more about how you can support St Barnabas House during Hospice Care Week at


Have you ‘got what it takes’ to volunteer as a Community Companion? Visit St Barnabas during Hospice Care Week to find out more. St Barnabas House is inviting anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer Community Companion to drop in to an informal volunteer recruitment open morning at the hospice on Titnore Lane, Worthing, between 10am and 12pm on Wednesday 9 October. Community Companion volunteers provide social support to hospice patients and their carers in the local community. This might include going out for a coffee, visiting a patient at home so their carer can take a break for a couple of hours or helping with the weekly shop. For more information, visit, email or call 01903 706315.

Shoreham-by-Sea Horticultural and Allotments Society, Part Two.


ack in June we took a look at the first fifty years of Shoreham’s Horticultural and Allotments Society. Now we continue to follow the society’s development into the second half of the twentieth century. In the 1950s there were three main shows a year, with seven meetings for members to attend and three for beginners, to encourage more people to take up gardening. The 1950 summer show in August featured a fur and feather show. Held in the marquee at Buckingham Park, it was run by the Shoreham Poultry and Rabbit Club. Among the breeds of rabbit on display were the short-coated Ermine Rex, the Chinchilla, which has grey fur similar to the rodent of the same name and the Belgian Hare – which aren’t hares at all, but an athletic looking rabbit. That year there were also sheep dog trials in Buckingham Park and the usual fun fair. A new event was the screening of some religious films by the Methodist Mobile Cinema, which was housed in a van. 1950’s August show had been on a swelteringly hot day, but the following year heavy rain meant fewer visitors than usual and sadly the show made a financial loss. Members of the society then busied themselves holding a series of bring-and-buy sales of garden produce and a jumble sale to raise funds and the Shoreham Boat Owner’s Association sent a donation towards putting the Society back in the black. 1951’s Chrysanthemum show was run in association with The Sussex Beekeepers Association annual honey show. In 1952 the summer show was a modest affair, but it was back to a full-scale event in the park in 1953, when great weather once again brought the crowds flocking. This show included the crowning with flowers of Shoreham’s first Floral Queen and attendants, by the Chairman of the Urban Council. In an article in the Shoreham Herald in 1957, which was definitely of its time, it was suggested that a housewife should be the judge of the vegetables at the shows. The chairman of the society didn’t agree however, believing that housewives of Britain were not always the most discerning when it came to vegetable shopping. On the August Bank Holiday of 1961, several thousand people attended the Buckingham Park flower show and cage bird show. About 1,400 people paid to watch the sheep dog trials and 1,300 visited the flower show marquee. There were also three sideshows run by Shoreham Liberal Association and a static display by the Royal Sussex Regiment Of The Territorial Army. In 1964, the society’s current President Barry Hillman joined and won two cups at that year’s summer show. In 1965 the Shoreham scouts constructed a rope bridge in Buckingham Park on the Bank Holiday Monday, allowing hundreds of visitors to cross it. The exhibit had to close temporarily when two youths caused a supporting timber to snap, but it was repaired in time for others to enjoy. Heavy showers in 1966, after the August show had begun, encouraged 100s of people to cram into the marquee and view the exhibits. That year the autumn show was held at Victoria Road Primary School for the first time. The 1967 early summer show had a class for strawberries, but poor weather preceding the event meant there were no entries at all on that particular fruit that year. For those looking for something a little different, the early summer show of 1968 promised a mounted display of ‘insects

injurious to the garden’. There is no record of exactly what specimens were on display. Presumably aphids would have been a little small to exhibit. Keeping with the instructional theme this show also contained a display showing the germination stages of broad and French beans. In 1973 children’s classes were added to the Flower and Vegetable Show to encourage local schoolchildren to take an interest in plants and gardening. Pinks and carnations were now becoming less popular in terms of number of entries but roses and fuchsias were increasing in numbers among the plants exhibited. Topically, Society Chairman expressed the view that with the advent of the Common Market allotments in the district would become scarce. A plant sale was introduced to the 1974 summer show and became a regular annual feature. In 1976, classes for vegetables were added to the autumn show and in 1981 beginners’ classes were introduced for those who had not exhibited their produce before. Although the summer show of that year, in a marquee at Buckingham Park had been very well attended, the society was having trouble recruiting committee members and this made it fear for is future for a time. Fortunately new members did join and Shoreham Horticultural and Allotment Society is still flourishing in 2019, its centenary year. This year’s autumn show is on Saturday 12th October from 12 noon at the Shoreham Centre in Pond Road. As always everyone will be welcome to go along and enjoy the displays of flowers, fruit, vegetables and much more.

5 Exercises for Strengthening your Core


ower back pain is one of the most common problems I see and can be one of the most persistent and recurrent of injuries. One way we can reduce our risk of back pain, or how you can ease back pain if you are already suffering, is through core strength,

What is core strength?

Your core muscles are the deeper muscles in your lower trunk that are designed to stabilise and protect your spine. However, due to bad habits and poor posture, we can become lazy, and therefore we do not use the core muscles as much as we should. Often, when you hear someone telling you they want to strengthen their core, they will mention exercises such as sits-ups. These exercises strengthen superficial muscles but not the core muscles, so although you might, if you’re lucky end up with good definition, it won’t help you avoid back pain.

How can we strengthen our core muscles? Core muscles are designed to work all of the time, even when

you’re resting, such as when you sit down, and therefore, for this to happen they need to work at a low level, so they do not fatigue and give up working. Therefore core muscles strength should be gentle, subtle in nature, with an emphasis on focusing on your breathing. This is why Pilates is so good, but ask some people about their experience of Pilates, and they may say something like: “I didn’t really feel like I was doing much”, or “I didn’t get a burn”, or “ It wasn’t energetic enough for me”. Below are 5 exercises that will help you strengthen your core muscles and help you reduce the risk of back pain. 1. Sitting balance on a Swiss Ball: Sit upright on a Swiss Ball, with your feet hip width apart and rest your hands on your thighs. Make sure to sit tall, and gently pull your stomach in towards your spine, whilst breathing. When you are ready, carefully pick one foot off of the floor, and try and maintain your sitting balance without rolling on your ball. Try and hold your balance for up to 30 seconds, and repeat on both sides. 2. Bridging: Lay on your back, with your knees bent, your feet resting flat on the floor and your feet about hip width apart. Push up through your hips to lift your hips off the floor, making sure to keep your back straight. Do not arch your back too far or let your hips drop on either side. You should try and hold this position for 5 seconds and repeat the movement 10 times. 3. Superman pose: Kneel on all fours with your hands shoulder width apart, and your knees hip width apart. Keep your back and neck in a straight line. Pull your stomach in as above. Without arching or tilting your back, try to straighten one arm out horizontal to the ground and do the same behind you with your opposite leg. You should not aim to raise your arm or leg for height, but think of the movement as more of a stretching position. You should hold the pose on one side for 5 seconds, and try and repeat the movement each side up to 10 times. 4. Single leg balance: Simply stand up tall, with your feet hip width apart, and whilst pulling in your stomach muscles, try and lift one foot off the floor, so that you balance on one leg. Try and maintain a level pelvis. You should aim to balance on one leg for up to 1 minute each side. 5. Plank: This is quite an advanced exercise, done properly. Adopt a press up position on your front, but rest on your forearms and elbows, instead of on your hands. Place your feet hip width apart and rest on the balls of your toes. Try and lift your whole body off the floor, just resting on your forearms, elbows and feet. Hold this position for as long as you can, before you start to drop your hips or you begin to shake. Avoid back pain with these simple exercises that can be performed daily.

t’s National Osteoporosis Day on 20th October! Jenny Davys of Shoreham Osteopathy Centre outlines some facts about this condition, risk factors and tips on how to keep your bones strong and healthy.


of essential amino acids, which are sourced directly from meat or can be obtained by combining a good variety of different plant sources. Food supplements can be helpful – it’s best to seek advice from a qualified medical professional on this.

What is osteoporosis?

Age & Hormones

Osteoporosis is a condition where bones become weaker and more fragile. The classic image is of a bent-over elderly person whose spine has “crumbled” owing to osteoporosis, but osteoporosis doesn’t just affect vertebrae – wrist and leg fractures are common indicators of weakened bones. Osteoporosis occurs because the body produces too few osteoblasts (the building-block cells of bone) and/or it produces too many osteoclasts (cells that break down bone). The main test for osteoporosis is a bone density test (DEXA scan). Mildly reduced bone density is known as osteopaenia. Many things, including genetics, age, lifestyle and medications can affect whether you develop osteopaenia, and whether this then leads to osteoporosis.


If your parent(s) have or had osteoporosis, this may increase your risk, but many factors influence whether or not you develop it. Often by mitigating other risk factors, you can reduce the chances of inheriting the condition – so READ ON!

Eat well and get some sun

You are definitely more at risk of osteoporosis if you are underweight and/or eat a poor, unbalanced diet – those suffering from eating disorders are often at risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Bones require calcium (for strength and hardness) and vitamin D to absorb it. Vitamin D is formed naturally in the body from sunlight so, as winter approaches, take every chance to get outdoors, while remembering to protect your skin from sun damage. Calcium is not only present in dairy products, but also in green leafy vegetables such as spinach (but only when cooked!), and some nuts, seeds and pulses. Vitamin D is found in oily fish, red meat, liver and egg yolks, Also important for bone health are vitamins B, C, E and K, and minerals boron, copper, magnesium, potassium, silicon and zinc. Fatty acids such as omega 3 and 6 found in oily fish, seeds and some nuts) help the body absorb these vitamins and minerals. Bones also require proteins for the minerals to attach to, so eat plenty of good quality protein containing the full range 26

People over the age of 60 are generally more at risk of lower bone density, as both oestrogen and testosterone affect bone formation. Women experience a significant drop in oestrogen after menopause (at whatever age this occurs). Men’s testosterone levels typically start to decline over the age of 40. However, many factors can influence both oestrogen and testosterone levels at any age, such as medications, certain illnesses, and even stress, so it’s definitely not only the elderly who can experience osteoporosis.


Did you know that a risk factor for osteoporosis is sitting still? Our bones need sufficient forces exerted on them to stimulate healthy cell growth – that’s why astronauts in zero-gravity can suffer weakened bones. Regular weight-bearing exercise, such as brisk walking or exercise such as pilates or yoga with resistance bands or light weights, will help reduce your risk of osteoporosis.


Smoking and drinking alcohol reduce absorption of the vital minerals and vitamins required for bone growth. Excessive caffeine intake may do this too. Additionally, some chronic conditions, particularly autoimmune diseases, can predispose to low bone density, as can long-term use of medications such as immunosuppressants and corticosteroids.

The good news

The classic bent-over posture is thankfully less common these days, with our increased knowledge of risk factors and treatment options, while osteopaenia does not necessarily lead to osteoporosis. Even if you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis , it is usually possible to prevent worsening and even improve bone density. Have a look at the Royal Osteoporosis Society’s website or, for a free chat about any of the issues above, just contact our osteopaths at SOC. www. To advertise call: 01273 452065 •

The novelists (Tolstoy, Dostoevsky…) and composers (Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky…) are well known. The painters are not. But the period saw a new realist school of art, the “Itinerants”, which broke violently with the earlier academicism and, in the run up to the revolutionary twentieth century, ruthlessly depicted and criticised Tsarist Russia with all its flaws.
