Author Peter James Launches Ropetackle Plan for Survival “More than just an Arts Centre”


new community fundraising appeal has been launched by Ropetackle Arts Centre that trustees hope will save the much-loved live entertainment venue and cinema from closing – and international bestselling author, Peter James has been the first to sign up as a “Gold Patron”. “As with nearly all arts venues, Ropetackle cannot survive without subsidy. Our situation is now critical to the extent that we are calling on our community to support us,” Ropetackle chairman, Martin Allen, says. “We are a charity, and without such support, we face the prospect of closure”. Best-selling crime author Peter James wasted no time in signing up to the scheme, launched today. He recalled his support when plans for establishing Ropetackle were first laid, saying: “What has been created here is ten times richer than the original vision. It is more than just an arts centre – it is a community hub”. With the title Ropetackle 2020, and a rolling target of £30,000 per year, the appeal invites contributions at different levels:

past six months alone, top comedians Romesh Ranganathan, Jack Dee, Alan Carr, and Peter James have entertained audiences, along with some of the biggest names in jazz, rock, blues, folk, indie and world music. Having won several prestigious awards, Ropetackle’s latest accolade came this Spring, when it was voted Best Theatre and Arts Venue in Sussex. However, as Martin Allen adds: “Success comes at a price: there is the ongoing cost of running a live entertainment venue, and the complexity of its operation means we need more paid staff to support our wonderful team of volunteers”. “Ropetackle is a real hub for the community. As well as offering a rich cultural experience, we work with schools, disadvantaged groups and a number of partners to inspire everyone and help reduce loneliness. Our café is very popular, and we attract tourists to the area, with our audiences contributing upward of £1m a year to the local economy. I hope the scheme will encourage people to sign up with a view to supporting us year-on-year so that we can sustain this wonderful Centre and keep it running long into the future.”

Those interested in joining the scheme can do so online at or in person at the Box Office. Sussex’s best soul and funk band, the South Coast Soul Revue, will be performing a fundraising gig in aid of Ropetackle 2020 on Friday 6th September at the venue. The band will be supported by two other soul acts and the fun kicks off at 8pm. Everyone is welcome. Tickets just £20.

• G  old Patrons (£45 per month or £500 single annual payment) and Silver Patrons (£10 per month or £100 single payment) • F riends (£2 per month or £20 single annual payment) • D  onors (£10 per year) Patrons will be entitled to reserve seating and both Patrons and Friends have the right to priority booking of certain tickets. With audiences of over 40,000 per year and with numerous community and other activities, in the 12 years since it opened, Ropetackle has been a remarkable success story, punching above its weight in the regional arts scene.

Take part in ‘Make a Will Month’ and help local people live life to the full


t Barnabas House has been providing specialist palliative care to local people, and their families, for over 45 years. This October is ‘Make a Will Month’ and the hospice has teamed up with local solicitors to help you create a Will or review your existing one, in return for a donation to St Barnabas House. There is no obligation to include a gift in your Will when taking part in Make a Will Month. However, you might be interested to learn that thanks to the generosity of local people, the care of 1 in 4 St Barnabas House patients’ is funded by gifts in Wills. Grace Hadley’s mother, Susan Hadley, decided to leave St Barnabas House a lasting legacy after the care she and her family received from the hospice during her battle with cancer. Grace says: “When we found out Mum’s treatment was not going to work, St Barnabas were there to help her. She enjoyed attending the Day Hospice and when she could no longer manage at home by herself, she was offered a bed at the hospice. Mum didn’t have a lot of money and everything she had was

tied up in her house. However, she was so thankful for the care that St Barnabas offered her during her illness that before she passed away in May 2018, she left the hospice a gift of £7,500 in her Will. You never know when you, your family or friends might need help from St Barnabas, so I would encourage anyone considering leaving a gift in their Will to do so and help ensure vital hospice care is there for people like my Mum when they need it most.” To take part in Make a Will Month, visit makeawillmonth, choose a participating solicitor and contact the firm directly to book an appointment. For more information, get in touch with the St Barnabas House Legacy Team on 01903 706351 or Make your Will and make a real difference this October.

Ready for Autumn


ell here we are in September! The summer seems to have shot by and nose-dived rather dramatically over the last month. Probably something to do with school holidays! Still there is always the promise of a revival during the month, even if we are getting shorter evenings. It is noticeable that summer is definitely starting to wind down and clearing the decks ready for Autumn. On the subject of holidays, it’s at this time of year that many of us have been away for a glorious few weeks, only to return home to see the garden looking like a jungle, with weeds

the size of triffids and all the plants that looked in such good condition looking distraught, despite the best efforts of the neighbour or the in laws, who were certain that they watered the garden regularly, when really they did it on the day before you come back because they kept thinking it would rain overnight so there’s was no need to pop around and do it. It can be very disconcerting, so it’s best to get stuck in and deal with things in order, to get back on top of it. If the plants are struggling then give them a good drink and pop some liquid feed in to give them a boost and help perk them up. I always go for the weeds next. It’s amazing how large they do grow and getting them gone before they go to seed is vital, to stop them reappearing. Just taking the weeds out makes an enormous difference to the look of the garden. Next on the list is dead heading the flowers and getting rid of anything that has died. Most flowering plants will bounce back very well from deadheading and give an even better display. After all that’s dealt with, give lawn a cut and edge it. It makes an instant impact and it also cuts down on the weeds in the lawn. Again, whilst you are at it, give the lawn a liquid feed. It will have taken a battering over the summer so a boost will really help perk it up and get it looking better. Do make sure you read the instructions on any lawn feed very carefully and follow them, and if it says water the lawn after applying, don’t be like the in-laws and hope it will rain, do it! I get to see quite a few lawns where they have been burnt by the nitrogen in the feed, because it wasn’t watered in as per the instructions and once it’s done, it’s not going to grow back! That should pretty much have got things back on track in the garden and hopefully you won’t be resigning yourself to never going on holiday again because of the garden. It sounds daft but I have heard that muttered on more than one occasion. As wonderful as a garden is, they will pretty much look after themselves with some interference from us. They are there to be enjoyed and not to become a burden. So please before you rush out and sort the garden out, at least unpack your suitcases and give the neighbour or the in-laws their stuffed Spanish donkey as a thankyou present for looking after the garden in your absence!  ark Oakley M Any Garden Limited

Working in Themes


he old cliche goes: Every Picture Tells a Story. However, sometimes you need more than one image to communicate your message and develop your ideas. This is often called working in themes. It is also referred to as creating a series or a panel of images. For the photographer, it can be challenging to produce several images of equal standard based on a single subject or theme that will hopefully be of interest to viewers. The Sunday broadsheets strive to show a hard hitting news image on their front page but their colour supplements often lend a double page spread to photographers who are developing themes, grouping images together, often in a grid, to expand and further explain the observations of the photographer. These images often portray mundane subject matter and are occasionally everyday objects photographed in an objective, factual way but that doesn’t need to be the case. Individual images can be subjective and creative, and hold interest on their own but by grouping them together they support each other visually and give the viewer a deeper insight into the photographer’s vision of the world. I have illustrated this here with two groups of photographs. I recently visited Sicily where, as you would expect, temperatures were in the mid-30s. I noticed that many car owners had protected their parked cars with colourful sunscreens. I decided to record some of these but wanted to add further interest to the photographs by including some of the surroundings including matching colours and human interest. It was a very obvious full colour subject. However, I also like to work in black and white when the subject matter is suitable and my second themed set depicts deep shadow. The word ‘photography’ literally means ‘drawing with light’ and photographers have their preferences when it comes to choosing weather conditions and time of day that bring


changes to natural light. I prefer the challenges of harsh, direct sunlight because, whilst any form of light is a necessity for photography, direct light also gives shadow, it creates contrast and that can add visual impact to a photograph, especially when presented in monochrome. I have put together a course of photography workshops and photo walks which I will be running based at the Shoreham Centre in Pond Road. The first half day taster session is 2pm to 5.30pm on Saturday 7th September. I will be showing some of my photographs and will be chatting through some ideas and possible projects that can be developed over time. I will then lead a photo walk and you can take some pictures which I will then be happy to critique if you email them to me during the following 14 days. Please email me for further details: Steve Boyle ARPS Steve Boyle is an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society Life Vice President of Brighton and Hove Camera Club Widely exhibited photographic lecturer

s my school friends and I started discussing plans for our 40th birthdays in the year ahead, thoughts as always turned to Claire whose September the 13th birthday was always the first to be celebrated. For anyone who has lost someone I’m sure you will know for some reason even though every day can be tough, certain dates and milestones are sometimes that little bit harder and this year was going to be no exception for us all. The 13th September for me will always be a bittersweet one as my first-born child Sienna was born 11 months after Claire passed away, the happiest of gifts brought to me on a day that I will forever wish she could have shared in person with my beautiful friend. It was out of this conversation and the wonderful happy fun memories we shared that the idea for the Sapphire Ball started, a plan to create a night to hopefully raise a lot of money as a fitting tribute to our glamourous girl next door. Claire Burtenshaw, an immensely popular, fun, happy young woman with a beaming smile, characteristic laugh and enormous heart sadly lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer aged 34. A people person who loved to party and was the life and soul of every gathering along with her family and friends whom she adored. She studied hard at University to fulfil her dream of qualifying as a dentist where she went on to practice with the highest standards and level of compassion and care. The Sapphire Ball (Sapphire being the birthstone for September) on Saturday 14th September at The Grand Hotel, Brighton in loving memory of Claire Burtenshaw, sponsored by David Vaughan and McMillan Williams Solicitors will be a glamourous Black-tie charity event in aid of Cancer Research UK and Martlets Hospice. 3 course meal with wine, live entertainment and DJ until 1am with amazing raffle and auction prizes and some fun surprises on the night. Tickets are £75 pp or £700 for a table of 10. Cancer Research UK are working to prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise existing treatments to make them more effective. With over 4,000 doctors, nurses and scientists working hard every day


to beat cancer sooner the work they are doing really is seeing results. Survival rates have doubled in the past 40 years thanks to research. Cancer Research UK don’t receive any government funding. Every penny raised really does make a difference in the fight to beat cancer sooner. Martlets is a local charity that provides terminally ill people in Brighton and Hove, and surrounding areas, with the very best care and support, helping people do the things they love with the time they have left. Most people receive care from Martlets in their own homes. Outpatients also visit the hospice for pain relief, physiotherapy, counselling, welfare advice and social activities. Others choose to spend their final days at the hospice, or go in as inpatients for respite care or symptom management. Families and loved ones are also supported into bereavement. Martlets runs a 24/7 helpline for free, personal support. Martlets’ care is only free thanks to the generosity of local people; every donation will help them change lives.

WHEN IT COMES TO FUNDS, THE BEST ADVICE IS PERSONAL The recent trials of the Woodford fund highlight the importance of personal investment advice from Professionals. The suspension of dealings, probably until at least the end of this year, in this heavily promoted UK equity income fund has exposed the blurred line between investment advice and guidance. The Investment Association states that there are around 3,500 funds on sale in the UK, sorted into over 30 individual investment sectors with about 10% listed in the ‘unclassified’ sector. Understandably, faced with this huge choice, many private investors want some help in making their fund selections and the investment advice and assistance they receive has come under the spotlight following the recent suspension of trading in the Woodford Equity Income Fund . The fund’s manager, Neil Woodford, had established a pre-eminent track record with Invesco Perpetual before leaving in 2014 to set up his own fund management business and , unsurprisingly, a huge amount of money followed. Clearly, Woodford was helped by a common feature of today’s fund marketplace: favoured fund lists. The lists typically consist of 50 –100 funds, spread across those 30+ sectors and chosen by firms whose main business is ‘marketing funds to the public’. Criteria for selection is not always specified, but there is often a heavy reliance on past performance. However, one aspect is clear: if you pick a fund from the list, then it is you who are making the choice. Favoured fund lists do not constitute personal financial advice, even if may investors think that is

what they are receiving. At best they are a form of general guidance, attempting to sort some of the ‘wheat from a large volume of chaff’. The favoured list only supplies the selector’s opinion at the time. It does not offer you a recommendation based on your personal circumstances, which would include consideration of the other investments you hold, whether held directly or indirectly, say via pensions. Nor will the provider of the list offer any ongoing support, an important factor in current market conditions. There is a role for recommended fund lists, but there is no substitute for personal, regularly reviewed advice on your investments. At Pembroke Financial Services we have created a globally diversified, actively managed, quarterly rebalanced range of ‘model portfolios’ designed for clients with all investment risk profiles – from Cautious through to Adventurous – and a range of risk-graded Ethical portfolios and specialist Income and Pension Drawdown portfolios.

Local Foot Lady turns author

ocal Foot Lady Georgina, has just self-published two novels, despite being a technophobic dinosaur! Georgina who was born in Brighton and has lived most of her life in Sussex says, “I have always ‘scribbled’ but, when I lost my Black Labrador, I felt I wanted to write a novel with him in it. Having a love of Islands, I finally settled on the Isle of Wight and the ‘Wight’ series was born”. Wight Gold introduces Archie Etherington-Smythe, ‘just Archie’, in a cosy style genre. He is quite happy as a Sergeant in the New Forest, with his new puppy Bertie, until he receives a temporary promotion. The catch? It’s ABROAD! “Still, they don’t have much crime on the Isle of Wight. Do they?” Book two ‘Wight Lies’ will also be out later this year. After a spell of illness and a house move returning to writing wasn’t easy. Then an idea that had been playing for some time bore fruit and A Mother’s Instinct, a novel of revenge, arrived. The content being unsuitable for the previous cosy style. Amelia and Jessica are twin girls born, in the late 70s, to farming parents. It is soon obvious that, despite being twins, the girls are very different. When Amy is attacked by her school friends, life on the farm proves too much for her.


For a chance to win a copy of Wight Gold, answer the following question: What is the name of Archie’s puppy? For a chance to win a copy of A Mothers Instinct, answer the following question: What is Amy’s twin sister called? Please send answers to Inside Shoreham by 20th September. Winners will be announced in the October issue. Both books are available on Amazon as a paperback or e-book. By GD Jackman. To advertise call: 01273 452065 •

The New Shoreham Act 1771


n February 1770, news reached New Shoreham, at the time a two-seat constituency, that its MP, Sir Samuel Cornish had died. The Star Inn raised a flag to summon the members of the electoral club known as the Society to an unscheduled meeting. In 1770 only gentlemen above the age of twenty with a freehold and a yearly business related income of noteworthy value were allowed to vote. The two New Shoreham parliamentary seats were the most sought after in the country, with more campaign money spent here than anywhere else. The Society was known locally to select from it members a steering committee. Upon a donation from a prospective candidate, this committee would then persuade the Society how to vote and divide the money up as soon as the election was over. The Society intended to auction Sir Samuel Cornish’s seat to the highest bidder. Hugh Roberts, the High Constable and Returning Officer wanted no part in such skulduggery and resigned his Society membership. News then reached Shoreham that Sir Samuel Cornish was in fact still alive. Sir Samuel Cornish lived in Sharnbrook in Berkshire and did then die on the 30th of October, that same year. The New Shoreham by-election was then held on the 26th of November. At the count, the votes recorded were: Thomas Rumbold 87 votes, John Purling 37 votes and William James 4 votes. Hugh Roberts the Returning Officer rejected 76 of Rumbold’s votes and declared Purling as winning the election. Rumbold though then petitioned Parliament and on the 8th of February 1771, Hugh Roberts was summoned to the House of Commons, charged with having made a false return to Parliament. During his trial, Roberts testified that after the death of Sir Samuel Cornish, five Londoners had immediately arrived in Shoreham-by-Sea with their election agents. Each one had met with a Society committee member in a secret auction for the vacant parliamentary seat. Retired General Richard Smith of the private army of the East India Company had offered £3,000 and to build 600 tons of shipping in Shoreham. In a witness statement it was claimed Mr Rumbold had offered more, plus his election agent John Inott pledged Society members the sum of £35 for each vote. They had even tried to bribe Hugh Roberts who said “I would belong to no society which obliged me to vote as the majority, nor go to a poll where I should be perjured.” Testifying that he had disqualified Rumbold for bribery, Hugh Roberts then surrendered to the judgement of the House of the Commons. On the 12th of February 1771, the House of Commons ruled that the assumption of such power by a Returning Officer, upon whatever principle it was based, would be a most dangerous precedent. The Sergeantat-Arms promptly arrested and imprisoned Roberts upon his conviction. Later the Speaker of the House, Sir Fletcher Norton, gave a long speech reprimanding a contrite Roberts and discharged him from public office. Shoreham at this time was what was known as a rotten borough and the landlord of the Star Inn boasted that during one election he made £300 profit on his beer. Each candidate on Election Day had to swear an oath that they had not bribed or corrupted the vote. The Shoreham

by-election of 1770 had exposed the lie and embroiled the town in a ‘cash for votes’ scandal. With the corrupt Society exposed, the House of Commons raised the New Shoreham Electors To Incapacitate Bill. 68 Society members were named in the bill, which was intended to strip them of the vote. The bill’s third reading in the House of Lords was on the 6th of May 1771 and it was passed without amendment. The New Shoreham Act 1771 came into being on the 8th of May. Shoreham was reduced to a one Parliamentary seat with, surprisingly, Thomas Rumbold as its MP. This was due to his investment and influence with the East India Company. He spoke against them on the 30th of March 1772, backing an inquiry into their business practice. Then on the 21st of May 1773, in a U-turn, he made a speech in support of the East India Company. During the 1774 General Election Rumbold became the MP for Shaftesbury, but was disqualified for bribery. The House of Commons ordered his prosecution but Rumbold successfully petitioned against it. Back in the New Shoreham constituency, before any election took place, the 68 stripped of the vote had to elect one among them to name and shame them all as being barred from voting by order of the King.

s nights draw in and days turn cool, Autumn brings its own set of sleep challenges for those who struggle to snooze. According to The Sleep Council, while the end of long, light nights and hot stuffy bedrooms ends one set of problems, it can mean the start of others for some people. Says The Sleep Council’s sleep chief, Lisa Artis: “While Autumn’s cool nights provide a nice bedtime break from Summer’s hot and humid evenings, a host of other sleep issues can crop up at this time of year and disrupt shuteye.” Here’s The Sleep Council’s advice to make sure Autumn doesn’t leave you fatigued and frustrated: • Shorter days can mean less exposure to sunlight. This means lower levels of vitamin D and increased feelings of fatigue – and also disruption of the circadian rhythm, which regulates feelings of wakefulness and sleepiness. Getting plenty of sun on your face in the morning can help, so be sure to open the curtains as soon as you wake up and, if possible, go for a morning walk. After sunset, do the opposite and dim indoor lights to get your body back on track. • While crisp, chill air can make it tempting to light the fire and crank up the heating, it’s actually best to keep the home – or at least the bedroom –between 16 and 18 degrees Celsius. Letting the bedroom get too warm can mess with sleep: too hot and the body struggles to bring its temperature back down, causing wakefulness. Too cold and the body will eventually wake you up – demanding extra layers of warmth and insulation! • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression that can set in when daylight hours grow shorter, is thought to affect one in 15 people between the months of September and April in the UK each year. While the cause of SAD is still unknown, the disorder can alter melatonin levels, which play a role in the sleep/wake cycle and cause daytime sleepiness and oversleeping. To re-establish a normal sleep schedule, exercise regularly, ensure the bedroom is conducive to sleep (strictly no gadgets and gizmos) and keep bedtime/waking times consistent – even at weekends. Getting as much natural daylight as possible is key too, as it suppresses melatonin levels and boosts serotonin production. • Colder weather can also tempt us to eat more than we should. While it’s easy to stick to salads and lighter foods during warm Summer months, avoid the temptation to ‘comfort eat’ heavier meals as the temperatures drop – particularly close to bedtime. Overload the tum at your peril! Too much food, too close to bedtime is a sure-fire recipe for wake-up level heartburn and indigestion. • Make sure your bed is comfortable and still supportive. Indoor furniture can be forgotten about during the lazy, hazy, outdoor furniture days of summer. With the focus firmly back on interiors, it might be time to re-appraise the piece you use more than any other in the home – and if your bed is seven years old or more, then a new one could definitely be on the cards.

He could have left and showed his disgust at a violent racist dictatorship , or stayed to protect the values of German civilisation and help his fellow musicians. He stayed and conducted for Hitler. In the ruins of Berlin after the war, to work again he must be investigated by an American de-Nazification tribunal. Led by a hostile US officer with no interest in music, the tension between the two men increases, leaving the audience to wonder what is right and which side to take. 22

What is the most common back injury that I see?

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction

The sacroiliac joint, of which you have 2, a left side and a right side, is the largest joint in the spinal column. It is also mechanically a pivotal point, which translates to rotational movement of the pelvis and also supports all of the weight of the trunk and upper body. The sacroiliac joint is made up between the sacrum and the ilium.

Treating issues related to • Back, neck and shoulder pain • Sports injuries • • Pre and post operative rehabilitation • • Muscle retraining and biofeedback • Whiplash • • Ligament sprains and muscle strains • • Postural re-education for poor posture • Treatments • Deep tissue massage • Sports massage therapy • • Joint mobilisation/manipulations • • Active release/cross frictions • • Electrotherapy (i.e. ultrasound, interferential) • • Acupuncture (Trigger Point release, Traditional Chinese) • • Exercise rehabilitation • Posture re-education • • Ergonomic advice and health promotion • Louis Jones Physiotherapy 467614 Telephone: 01273 741515 Website: Email: 2nd Floor, Business Centre, Three SixtyAdur Fitness, 394-398 Brighton Rd, Shoreham-by-Sea, Little High Street, Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, BN43 6RT 5EG


There are different provocative tests to check the integrity of the joint and reproduction of painful symptoms. One very common test to check for hypomobility (stiffness) of the sacroiliac joint is called Piedallu’s sign, which along with the other provocative tests, will be assessed by a physiotherapist.

Symptoms of sacroiliac joint dysfunction

Symptoms may include one of more of the following: 1. Lower back pain, typically on one side, feeling dull or achy and can range from mild to severe. 2. Pain that spreads to the hips, buttocks or groin. Pain can also be felt in the back of the thigh. Typically pain is usually only felt on one side. 3. Sciatic-like pain that feels sharp or stabbing or as some would describe like a toothache in the back of the thigh. 4. Stiffness and reduced range of motion in the lower back, hips, pelvis and groin, which is worse with movements such as walking, climbing stairs or bending at the waist. 5. Worsened pain when putting added pressure of the sacroiliac joint, such as climbing stairs, running, lying on one side or sitting. 6. Instability in the pelvis or lower back.

Treating the sacroiliac joint

Physiotherapy can be very effective as a form of treating sacroiliac joint dysfunction, by using manual techniques to soften and normalise soft tissue structures, mobilisation and manipulation to restore normal alignment and help improve joint mobility. Exercises to maintain mobility and strength exercises to prevent future episodes of sacroiliac joint dysfunction can be prescribed. Although it is never guaranteed, you can prevent lower back pain by educating patients about good posture and can help to minimise lower back pain and sacroiliac dysfunction.

Who are the Lions – really?


ne of the Lions’ mottos is ‘Ordinary people, amazing things!’ but how ordinary are they? Are they just like you? Read on to find out: Susan worked as both a secretary and a teacher and finished her career as a consultant for a local authority. Now retired, she likes to keep busy and enjoys gardening, the allotment, horse-riding, cycling and walking. With three grandchildren, she doesn’t have much time to stand still and yet wanted to put something back into the community and so joined the Lions. The thing she most enjoys is talking to people and engaging them in Lionism. Maurice had a varied career, but most recently was a sheet metal worker. He originates from Reigate and was a keen cyclist from an early age thinking nothing of cycling to Brighton and back. After a long period of windsurfing, he returned to cycling with renewed vigour and can often be found in the lanes of Sussex cycling with a local group. He first found out about the Lions from the Inside Shoreham magazine and decided to attend a membership evening. He started to help

out with various events such as sleigh collecting and the donkey derby and then decided to join because they were a friendly group of people. Helping other people is his main objective.
