Celebrating Steyning’s Scottish connections To celebrate his 88th birthday, Colin Gray, a long-time resident of Steyning, has presented the George Gray Rose Bowl to Steyning Museum. Muriel Wright, Chairman, was delighted to accept it on behalf of the museum. This beautiful trophy was named after Colin’s father who lived in Dacre Gardens, Upper Beeding and was the founder of the Steyning Reel Club which met weekly at the Steyning Railway Hotel. In the 1950’s Scottish dancing became so popular that members often put on outdoor demonstrations in Brighton and other local venues. The George Gray Rose Bowl will be a focal point in Steyning Museum’s new display on

Olympic Legend Opens Running track at Steyning Primary School Gold medal Olympian Sally Gunnell OBE visited Steyning C of E Primary School on Monday 31st January to open its new all-weather running track. The Sussex resident was welcomed to the school to cut the ribbon and to run a lap with some of the children to help kick start their challenge – to collectively cover the equivalent 874-mile distance between Land’s End and John O’Groats within five school days.

Sally said: “It was a pleasure to open the track and to meet some of the staff and pupils at the school. It’s great to hear about their challenge and I wish them the best of luck with it in the coming days. I hope the track continues to inspire them to be active everyday as exercise is so important for physical and mental health.”

The 2 metre wide running track is 320m long and so five laps equal a mile. To complete their challenge, the 397 students will be working together to complete at least 4,370 laps within the school week. Made from artificial grass surfacing, the double-lane all-weather track has proved popular with the pupils since mid-November when it was completed. The school raised money for the facility with the help of the local community, including contributions from Steyning Athletics Club, Friends of Steyning Primary School, Wilson Memorial Trust, Umbra Performance, West Grinstead and District Ploughing & Agricultural Society, WSCC Community Interest Fund, Steyning Football Club, and The George Mill Trust. Individual fundraising efforts included a 107km trek around the perimeter of the Isle of Wight and participation in the ‘Race to the Kings’, a whopping 53.6 mile walk along the South Downs Way. There were also many donations made by parents and small businesses within the Steyning Community.

Head teacher Sue Harrison said: “We’re very grateful to Sally for visiting the school to help officially launch the running track. We are also very thankful to everyone who helped raise money for the running track as without the many contributions, we wouldn’t have been able to install it. The children are really enjoying using it and it’s proving a brilliant way to keep them active, regardless of the weather. We’ve been encouraging the children to get used to doing a mile a day, whether walking, jogging, or running.”

The school’s PE teacher Simon Knowles added: “Sport and exercise is a really important part of life at Steyning Primary School. We are proud of our sporting endeavours and the way we encourage the children of all abilities to try different sports, including athletics. We know that exercise is a great way for children to burn off energy and we’re already seeing the benefits in terms of increased concentration and focus in class.”

Are You Man Enough? The Henfield B-P Guild in conjunction with the charity PCaSO (Prostate Cancer Support Organisation) is offering FREE PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) testing on Saturday 2nd April at Henfield Village Hall, Coopers Way, BN5 9EQ. This is for men aged between 45 and 80, It is being arranged to get as many men as possible to take up the offer of a free and totally confidential test. Hopefully the tests will not show up any problems, but it is vitally important that if a problem is present, it is identified and acted on as early as possible. This could make all the difference. If this is of interest, please go to the website: www.psatesting.org/ events select ‘Henfield’ and book an appointment time. For enquiries only phone 0845 650 2555 The testing will be conducted by trained phlebotomists taking blood from a vein in the arm which will be analysed at a laboratory and the result either posted or emailed to you. Results will also be available on the bookings website. 1 in every 2 men will have a health problem with their prostate at some stage of their lives. It could

be an infection, enlargement or cancer. 1 in every 8 men will develop prostate cancer and those of African-Caribbean origin and those with a family history of the disease are 2 to 3 times more at risk. PSA stands for Prostate Specific Antigen. It is a simple blood test that measures the amount of antigen, produced by the prostate, entering the blood. It is not a direct test for cancer; a moderately raised reading can be an indicator of a prostate problem and a high reading should trigger further tests to determine if there is a need for any treatment. Without screening, around 50,000 men are diagnosed in the UK with prostate cancer each year. It is now the leading cancer found in men. Around 12,000 men die of this disease annually, one every 45 minutes. Caught in the early stages, cure rates are dramatically improved with over 80% success. General symptoms of problems with the prostate are frequent need to urinate especially at night; bursting to urinate, slow flow, difficult, painful; stop/ start and dribbling, or blood in the urine.

Introducing the Third Dimension A happy New Year to you all. It may be grey outside but I thought, instead of writing about low light photography I would brighten the mood with saturated colour.

A photograph, either in print or on a screen, is two dimensional. It has length and breadth but photographers can introduce the illusion of a third dimension (depth) by composing pictures that have foreground, mid ground and background interest.

place single figures on the edge, walking out of the frame as I feel it introduces a little tension because a split second later, they would have disappeared from that moment in time.

The second photograph was taken in Berlin.I have used the mundane maintenance hole covers as shapes to lead the eye into the picture to the unusual tones of the Museum wall. This makes the image almost abstract in design which would have been lost if I had included a figure. Many landscapes are composed in this way. The classic being a foreground rock, mid ground lake perhaps with a lone tree and distant hills or mountains. Now, each to their own but those images are not to my taste. Many are captured in touristy places such as the Lake District by groups of photographers standing shoulder to shoulder snappingalmost identical scenes. I urge you to be a little more creative, choose locations and situations that haven’t been shot a million times or at least try to find a different angle when photographing in familiar places.

My two photographs here have interest (maybe a little mundane) from foreground to background. The street scene is from France. The white road graphic represents the landscape rock, the person represents the lone tree and the wall is my mountain range. There is also a colour connection as the portrait posters have been blue toned, the graffiti to the right has been scrawled with blue paint so I have been patient and waited for a figure dressed in blue to walk through the scene. There is also a visual link where the person is looking directly at the posters so is very much involved in the scene. I often

Whatever your taste, your preference, your style, take lots of photographs but try to also step out of your comfort zone once in a while, experiment and see where it takes you.

The Science of Art at the National Gallery by Aaron Hunter Monday 14th February 2022 The incredible diversity of art within The National Gallery allows us to progress through the history of art in a relatively small space. It also gives us the opportunity to discover the science behind fine art. The lecture looks at the way in which scientific innovation has changed the way we create art, with reference among others, to Leonardo de Vinci, Titian, Turner, Stubbs and The Impressionists.

Club of Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Christmas tree re-cycling scheme raises funds for local charities This Christmas, the Rotary Club of Storrington & Pulborough District once again provided a valuable service to the Community and at the same time, helped to ‘green’ our area. Christmas Trees were collected from residents after twelfth night then recycled at an Ashington farm to provide material for use on local footpaths - all for a minimum donation of £5 per tree. The scheme was publicised by articles in local magazines, posters in local shops and garden centres and handing out leaflets at the Rotary book stall in Storrington and during Rotary’s Christmas collections. Trees were collected from most of the RH20 postcode including Pulborough, Storrington and all the surrounding villages - Fittleworth, Nutbourne, West Chiltington, Thakeham, Coldwaltham, Watersfield and Amberley. Collecting went smoothly thanks to huge assistance provided by members and friends of the Club. 426 trees were collected raising £2,600 which is being donated to - Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice, Turning Tides, Family Support Work and other charitable causes supported by Rotary.

Francis Thompson Francis Thompson was born on the 16th of December 1859, in Winckley Street, Preston Lancashire. His father was a doctor and his uncles were both authors. At eleven years old Thompson was sent to Ushaw College, near Durham. He was described as frail, delicate and so shy he would slide along the walls with his coat collar turned up.
