Cover Photo Amberley Village with thanks to local photographer Nigel Cull

Welcome... to the last month of 2016, I can’t believe another year is nearly over. It has certainly been a year of change culminating in the astonishing presidential election result in the US. Change is not always good, “better the devil you know” as the saying goes. It’s also been a full year since astronaut Tim Peake blasted off from Kazakhstan and orbited the earth for six months. On the anniversary of the mission launch, the Novium Museum in Tim’s home city of Chichester opens it’s major new exhibition 'Tim Peake: An Extraordinary Journey'. We speak to Tim’s father Nigel Peake for an exclusive interview. See page 24 . Also this month you can win Panto tickets to see Peter Pan at the Worthing Pavilion in January see page 17. Starring well-known TV celebrities, it promises to ’hook’ the audience (sorry)!

Sussex Snippets One-year-on since it was opened, Tangmere Solar Farm has generated enough clean electricity to power 1,500 homes for an entire year - almost 5,000 MWh (megawatt hour) of clean electricity from 18,000 solar panels - and is one of the country’s first councilowned solar farms and built on 29 acres of land owned by West Sussex County Council on part of the site of the former Tangmere Airfield. Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “This is the first part of a very exciting on-going project to produce clean, efficient energy harnessing nature’s resource.” www.westsussex.gov.uk/energystrategy. It is estimated that there are 120,000 unemployed military veterans, and up to 20,000 are leaving the services each year - many will be forced to leave early through physical or mental trauma and are unsure what to do with their futures. Building Heroes was formed two years ago to offer free construction skills training to service leavers and support them into a career in the building trades.

Can you imagine how you would feel if it was suggested that you leave your home and loved one and move to an “old people’s home”… Panic, anger, fear, betrayal are some words that come to mind. When the time comes for residential specialist dementia care, it is ROOM AVAILABLE NOW! when the quality of life for both sufferer and carer can be improved. Woodlands offers twenty-four hour professional care with the majority of staff having the equivalent of NVQ 3 and 4 with continuous updated courses provided. Families are able to take their loved one out or enjoy home made tea and cake in a relaxed atmosphere within the home daily or when ever is possible for them. This allows for quality social time, and families know that the personal, nutritional and complex care needs of their loved ones are being provided for every hour of the day. There is however one fact that is not frequently admitted. This is… that the earlier this move takes place, the better the result for the resident as they are able to cope with the changes to their lifestyle. No-one wants to make this sad decision, and in reality the temptation is to wait and “see how it goes”. Unfortunately, what so often happens is a catastrophe! A fall, midnight walk, not to mention all the little things that can play havoc with Dementia - lack of nutrition, hydration, cleanliness leading to infections and indeed the appearance that the actual Dementia is worse than it is! Why would we want minimum care at home, instead of the continuously caring atmosphere where a sufferer of Dementia is protected from all of the fear, indignity and complete isolation they experience most of the time. Come and visit Woodlands and see the difference professional family care could make for your loved one. We have a saying at Woodlands, “Enable a person to be the best they can be!” For further information and to visit Woodlands House contact me Oonagh Cacioppo Manager/ Proprietor: house.woodlands@gmail.com 01903725458 or 07815762623

Funds Boost Small Businesses Horsham District Council’s Economic Development team has teamed up with other local authority colleagues across West Sussex to secure £500,000 to set up a grant pot for small businesses - called the Local Enterprise and Apprenticeship Platform (LEAP) and Horsham district’s share of this pot is £83,000. If you are hoping to set up a new business, want to grow your existing small business, or want to take on an apprentice, you can apply for a share of these grant funds to help you out. For small business grants, you can apply for up to £2,000, and if you’re looking to take on an apprentice, you can apply for up to £1,500 to match the funding that the Government makes available. Companies must be registered with Companies House, have fewer than 20 employees and be based in Horsham District. Funding can be used for equipment, marketing, website development etc, but not for salaries, rent or overheads. It is available until September 2017 and will be decided by a grants appraisal team at the Horsham District Council.

Storrington Horticultural Society The Storrington Horticultural Society’s October meeting saw Sally Primmett from Village Nurseries, give a talk and demonstration on the wide variety of effects that can be achieved by careful selection of plant varieties used in pots and baskets for winter and spring colour. The audience were given many useful ideas on using an under layer of bulbs when planting up pots and winter hanging baskets to prolong the colour of the decoration. For indoor ideas Sally planted cyclamen and violas in interesting containers suitable for window sills and conservatories, moving and discussed making Christmas arrangements with cuttings from trees and bushes and adding glitter and small decorations to

add interest. Sally kindly donated all her displays for the raffle for which the committee gave their thanks. More details on: www.storringtonhorti.org.uk www.villagenurseries.co.uk

Bags of Fun Thanks to a £3,000 donation from the Southern Co-operative’s ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’ campaign, Sussex Wildlife Trusts (SWT) is able to develop their work with children and young people. SWTs Nature Tots programme of muddy fun for under-fives is taking places at six different places in Sussex, and their Youth Ranger groups have given volunteers aged 16-25 years the opportunity to learn new skills and enhance their career prospects. The My Wild Neighbourhood campaign is supported by proceeds from the 5p carrier bag levy collected by the Southern Co-operative and distributed to Sussex Wildlife Trust and other Wildlife Trusts in the South East.

Storrington Cricket Club Report Storrington Cricket Club (SCC) is investing for the future with a thriving junior section, girls as well as boys, under the nurturing eye of club members and some parent volunteers. This year the club enjoyed support from Sussex County Cricket Club (SCCC) through the Chance to Shine programme, SCCC donated a "hard ball" kit bag full of bats, pads, helmets, gloves and hard balls etc. Already the Club’s junior indoor nets are thriving, with video technology being used via tablets for coaching on technique. Outdoors, the Club’s initiative to build a safe practice area mainly, but not exclusively, for the Cygnets to use, requires significant funding and the Club will be seeking loans, grants and other fundraising opportunities. The Parish Council, relevant Planning Authorities, and Sussex County Cricket Club are aware of the project and site visits from prospective suppliers are being scheduled. SCCs connection with Storrington First School remains strong and next summer will provide joint coaching sessions, along with SCCC, during PE lessons and after-school clubs. Contact: Steve Watkins, Chairman - 01903 744217 – for enquiries about senior playing or social membership; Martin Fisher - 078504 16886 – for enquiries regarding the Cygnets.

.Storrington Conservation Society The Storrington Conservation Society (SCS) AGM took place in the Village Hall in October, when Chairman, Mick Denness, reported on activities throughout the year.

If you met someone at a party who said their son was an astronaut who had orbited the earth, you would think they were off their rocket and dash for the nearest exit. But Nigel Peake seemed well-grounded when I spoke to him about his astronaut son, Tim’s momentous mission, which ended on 18 June 2016, so it must be true. West Sussex born Tim blasted off from Kazakhstan on December 15 last year, bound for the International Space Station, and orbited the earth for six months. The trigger for my space-talk with Nigel was the Novium Museum’s major new exhibition 'Tim Peake: An Extraordinary Journey' - opening in his home city of Chichester on 15 December, the anniversary of the mission launch. Visitors will be able to follow Tim’s astronomical adventure, from growing up in Chichester to becoming the first British European Space Agency astronaut. The UK Space Agency has given a £12,500 grant for the exhibition, which will also celebrate the work of Helen Sharman, the very first British astronaut and first woman in space. It is hoped Tim will visit the exhibition in person. His father, seventy-three-year-old Nigel, is very much part of the project group pulling the exhibition together, but we weren’t about to let him get away with just telling us about that: finding out about Tim is our mission, so how is he doing and is he still suffering from any of the after effects of being in space? “Bone density and muscles can be affected, but the only thing not back is bone density.” Nigel reports. Was that aspect worrying for him and

his wife, Angela, I wondered: “No, because everyone had warned about that, so you don’t worry. The worst part only lasted a few hours after the landing.” The British astronaut has himself described this as the “world’s worst hangover”.

hero, Nigel doesn't sound at all spaced out by the media attention he and his wife have been on the receiving end of and gave a down-toearth response: “We are very proud but it makes us laugh that we are now introduced to people as Tim’s parents.” He adds that 44-year-old Tim was delighted and has said it is the pinnacle of his career. Nigel noted that Tim had had 18 years in the Army, and that training for the space mission was so thorough, adding: “They have to cover every eventuality, even the docking and when another astronaut got water in his helmet outside the space station, they just switched into training mode.”

As to whether it is tricky being the father of a national

How have they coped with Tim’s fame and the excitement and worry of having a son who is an astronaut, and did they have any nightmares about space whilst Tim was up there? “No, I can honestly say not,” said Nigel, continuing: “It was wonderful to watch the space walk and we were reassured by the training and kept informed. It was fantastic back up. It gave Tim a new perspective on the earth and space” adding: “He was probably safer up there away from all the traffic!”

Tim must be exceptionally resilient, both physically and mentally, I observed, so does he get that from you, I asked Nigel. “He has always had a positive attitude, and Tim has said he had a very stable family life”, Nigel said. Tim was selected from more than 8,000 candidates, who had applied online to become an astronaut, following a selection process that took a year, followed by five years of training. Was there anything about his childhood that gave any insight into the fact that he would want to go into space as an adult? “He was always interested in flying helicopters, and his main career path was flying helicopters” said Nigel, who recalls that most of the testing was psychological, to test for tenacity and irritability: “With six people in the space ship that is very important. They want to know how you interact with people.”

Chichester High School, of which Tim is a former pupil, must be on Cloud 9 with all the positive publicity, but can it take much of the credit? Nigel gave an emphatic “Yes!”, in response, adding that Tim has paid tribute to the teacher in charge of the cadet force, which focussed his mind and he knew then that he wanted to join the army. His physics teacher, Mike Gouldstone, was also very supportive of Tim, he added. On finishing school, Tim went to the Royal

Is it true that Tim rang you from the International Space Station but got the wrong number? Nigel recalls: “He rang us but we were out, and he got our Ansaphone, but he also called someone - a pensioner - and she put the ‘phone down.” Well, it’s not every day that one picks up the telephone to be asked: “Hello, is this planet Earth?” The mission was Russian so is Tim now a fluent Russian speaker? Not fluent, said Nigel, but he has a good command of the language. Tim’s sister, who studied Russian at university, helped by having conversations with him in Russian. Since his return to Earth, Tim has been visiting major cities and speaking at events about what it's like to live and work in space, joined by his flight crew member Tim Kopra, NASA and former commander of the International Space Station. But he has a more local engagement ahead of him: Tim has said he would be honoured to take part in a parade through Chichester, after eight-year-old Rufus Knight, a pupil at Oakwood School, asked him

to take part in a ticker-tape parade through his home city. Has the parade occurred yet? “He is still trying to find a date.” Reports Nigel. It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase: “I will look for a window in my diary.”

Reader Letter

through the door

Reader Letter - Thanks to St Barnabas Dear Editor My wife Susan died at the end of November last year. She was just 63. Susan had collapsed suddenly at her golf club in August the previous year. Scans were taken and showed that she had a large terminal growth on her brain. Her doctor referred us to St Barnabas House and when I took Susan into the hospice for the first time we met with Jackie, a Community Nurse, who we came to know very well. Jackie regularly came out to our home in Storrington and helped me to cope through the bad times. Susan started going to the Day Hospice and it was brilliant for her, a chance to relax, have some therapy and chat to the staff and other patients. Susan spent her last few weeks at St Barnabas. I was with her every day, but each evening I could go home knowing she was receiving the best possible care. All the nurses were so attentive to her, so supportive. The memory I have of Susan, in bed in her room at the hospice, is that she was dignified, serene. On her last day I was with her and she slipped away without discomfort and in peace. St Barnabas House nurses gave Susan the most incredible care. This Christmas, please join me in

31

helping them to offer the same care to other local people at the end of their lives. Thank you and may I wish you and your loved ones a happy and peaceful Christmas. Ian, By Email St Barnabas House provides specialist palliative care services to adults with advanced progressive lifelimiting illnesses, both within the hospice and in the comfort of patients’ own homes across West Sussex. One simple way to support St Barnabas in Storrington is to visit their shop in Old Mill Square, opposite Waitrose, and either buy or donate an item. www.justgiving.com/St-Barnabas-Christmas-2016. www.stbarnabas-hospice.org.uk

32 Recipe

Roast Turkey Village Larder have been supplying Sussex reared Turkeys for six years. We wanted to share our family tips for a truly tasty turkey with especially succulent breast meat. Remember that the white (breast) meat of the turkey cooks quicker than the dark (leg) meat and wings, so it is best to cook your turkey breast side down to start with. This should keep the juices in the breast and prevent it from becoming too dry. Another tip for even cooking is to loosen the trussing.

How to cook your turkey: If you wish to stuff your turkey, prepare your favourite stuffing recipe and fill the neck cavity only. You may like to put a large Bramley apple or peeled onion into the body cavity. Sprinkle the bird with salt and pepper, rub generously with goose/duck fat then place it breast side down (covered with foil if you prefer) in a roasting tin. The oven should be pre-heated to 230°C/450°F/Gas mark 8 and the bird cooked at this temperature for 30 to 60 minutes depending on size, before reducing the heat to 190°C/375°F/Gas mark 5. For cooking times please see, www.villagelarder.co.uk/turkey

About 30 minutes before the end of cooking, open the foil if used and turn the bird onto its back to brown the breast. Do try to avoid over-cooking. Test with a fork on the inside of the thigh, ensuring that clear juice comes out of the thigh when you pierce. After removing the turkey from the oven and before carving, allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes.

Carving: The following sequence makes for easy carving:
 1. Hold the leg by the end knuckle, cut close to the body and twist off. Carve this dark leg meat.
 2. Similarly remove the wing and cut in half.
 3. Slice the breast meat from one side.
 4. Repeat for the other side.

34 Gardening

In Your Garden Monthly gardening ideas and tasks by Andrew Staib of Glorious Gardens Trees Choose your trees carefully. Often I arrive at a client’s garden and there is either one massive tree that dominates the rest of the garden space or there is a lack of trees. People sometimes assume that planting trees will create too much shade but if your garden is small/medium, well positioned trees with a delicate and spacious leaf and branch character can create a canopy that will give your garden a sense of height, enclosure and intimacy. Some trees for the smaller gardens are Amelenchier lamarki, Weeping Birch, Malus, Sorbus, Viburnum Tinus, Albezia and Rhus. All of these trees will give your garden a lovely sense of breadth without a tree surgeon being called in every year. Taller Shrubs

Designing your Garden using Layers Are you bored with your garden? Has it felt two dimensional this summer with long periods where nothing much is happening? If you take a walk in nature you will realise that plant life tries to occupy all the different layers of space. From tall trees to a canopy of small trees underneath, to shrubs then ground cover, bulbs and climbers. Different plants survive on different levels depending on their light requirements with other factors such as wind, soil stability and ability to grow next to other different species. The result is powerful and achieves a complexity that most gardens lack. Of course in many ways gardens are simplifications of nature, bringing out the essential elements whilst allowing for more functional human spaces as well as ease of maintenance. Yet it is possible to bring some of that rich wovenness into the smallest of gardens and the results will give you a deeper satisfaction and a more three dimensional beauty. So if there are gaps in your beds or just one or two layers going on compared with the eight I have mentioned below, you can notice what is missing and plan to enrich your layering for next year!

Underneath this layer one can plant a layer which I call Tall Shrubs. These plants can contribute lots of height when needed but can also be pruned severely each year depending on the plan you have for the shapes in your garden.


Gardening

through the door Some are Sambucus ‘Sutherland’s Gold’ and Sambucus ‘Black Lace’, Philadelphus, Forsythia, some of the taller Cornus, Ceanothus, Fatsia, most of the the Pittisporums and the different types of Laurel. Smaller Shrubs Smaller shrubs can then be chosen that will tend to give longer periods of colour and fit snuggly under the ‘umbrellas’ of the taller trees. Some interesting shrubs that come to mind are: Rosa rugosa, Teucrium fruticans, Japanese Quince, most of the Hebes, Hydrangeas, Cistis, Pittisporum ‘Tom Thumb’ and the Choysia range. Ground Cover Ground cover can be used as the ‘glue’ that holds all the different layers together. Not only can you plant these in large ribbons and drifts to give your border a sense of flow and unity but they solve the practical job of suppressing the weeds whilst the trees are establishing themselves. Some tried and tested ground covers that I like are the Geraniums, Sedums, Chaerophyllum ‘Roseum’, White Bay Willow Herb and Persicaria. Smaller Ground Cover The smaller ground covers tend

35

to be at the front of borders where they won’t be swamped by the bigger plants. Some nice examples are: Pachysandra, Ajuga, Brunnera, Galium odoratum, Epimedium, Bergenias, Lilly of the Valley and Periwinkle. Climbers It is surprising how many gardens I visit and see unsightly spaces that a week chosen climber could easily transform. Climbers hide fences, can shoot up trees like rambling roses or drop languidly gown from shed grooves or pergodas. They are a first choice for many unsightly wall or tool shed and with their exuberant need to spread out can give your garden a new dimension of space. More unusual climbers are Akebia, Campsis, Berberidopsis coralline and Solanum Bulbs The bulb range is enormous. Some come out before the trees have come into leaf to grab the early sunlight when they can, others push through other plant life tenaciously. As I have written in previous articles, plan your bulbs with the months of the year in mind and you can have


36 Gardening bright splashes of colour almost all year. (The bright blue of Gentians at Wakefield were intense to look at this weekend). I would like to include another dimension to designing your garden with layers and that is what is called ‘Window Plants’. These are plants that even though some are quite tall they can be planted in the middle or even the front of a bed and you can see through their spacious foliage to other plants. Examples of theseand please look them up as they have a great ethereal feeling - are; Sanguisorba ‘Pink Elephant’, Dierama, Qaura, Molinia Tranparent and Molinia ‘Karl Foestar’, Allium Sphaerocephalon and the more commonly known Verbena Bonsariensis and Stips gigantia.

What to do in December Obviously it is the time of Christmas Fairs - Horsham Sunday Christmas market, plus the Ukfield Festival of Christmas, Arundel by Candlelight on Dec 3rd and ice skating at the Pavillion in Brighton are just a few things to do! Happy Xmas Everyone and give your back a well earned rest.

SUSSEX LOCAL What to do in December  It’s the right time to plant trees and hedges taken straight from the field. They are normally called ‘bareroot’ as opposed to ‘container grown’. They are half the price and settle in nicely into the cool moist earth.  If you have any tomatoes left in the green house harvest them all even if they are green. In a bowl in the sun indoors they will still ripen.  It is still ok to order and plant bulbs. The soil is still very warm even if the air isn’t.  Prune heavily sapping trees like Birches now and Grape vines before the winter sets in.  Harvest the rest of your root crops and lift and store your Dahlia bulbs.  Don’t worry if your garden looks messy. The more mess the better for wildlife that needs a place to hide during the winter. You will have plenty of time to clean your beds in Spring. Just think, laziness now is creating a 5 star hotel for wildlife!  However where needs must, continue to rake up leaves and store them separately from the summer’s grass clippings as they need a different process to break down quickly.

38 Motoring

Winter Motoring See and be Seen by Rex Lloyd ‘See and be seen’ should be the motto of every safety -conscious motorist. So many drivers tend to overlook the necessity of using headlights during daytime driving in bad weather conditions. The first priority of every motorist should be to ensure all the car’s lights are operating at their most efficient. This means clean lenses. It means clean, uncorroded reflectors. It also means changing bulbs as they become dimmed, since at the stage they do not produce the best of light and they are about to ‘go’ anyway. Inspect your lights, at least once a week, more often if you motor daily. Get a friend to help you check rear, brake, reversing and indicator lights. These are extremely important because they warn other drivers of your moves. Light lenses should be cleaned rather more often than the car itself is cleaned. They can so quickly become obscured or dimmed by road dirt. In winter, frost and snow can reduce headlight beams to almost nil. Some cars however do have lamp wipers. And make sure your lights are correctly directed. It is of no use whatsoever, dipping the beam, if the dipped lights are still directed to dazzle, or if the lights are

directed beyond the kerbside. Lights will help you see ahead but it is also important to ensure you can see through the windscreen in the first place. Keep you screen wash topped up, and not with just plain water. Always use a screen wash, it not only cleans better but acts as an anti-freeze in winter. Wipers must be in good repair to work efficiently. They are too often neglected till they split and fall away, just when you need them most. Always replace them as soon as they start to show missed areas when they are in use. Don’t forget to clean your screen on the inside; It is often forgotten how quickly dust and greasy deposits arrive here. If you or your passenger is a smoker, the screen will become dirty even quicker, so keep a cloth and cleaner handy in the car and wipe that screen over at least every other day.

Parish Council News

Ashington Parish Council – New developments A total of 25 sites will be considered by the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. Maps of the sites are available on the Parish Council website. The Steering Group agreed a two-part assessment process. The first part will assess each site against criteria laid out in the adopted Horsham District Planning Framework (HDPF). Any sites failing to comply with the HDPF will be rejected. Part two will ask Developers to put forward specific development proposals for their sites and demonstrate how these proposals will meet identified community needs and be of benefit to Ashington. Part one assessment forms have been distributed to all site owners/agents/developers and the deadline for submissions is 7th December. The HDPF is very specific in that Ashington is a ‘medium village’ with limited facilities and services. It is in the third tier of HDC’s settlement hierarchy, and that development within the District should be highest in Tier 1, less in Tier 2, less in Tier 3 etc. Develop-

ment should be prioritised to brownfield/Previously Developed Land and within the Built Up Area Boundary. Development on greenfield land abutting the BUAB should only be allocated within Neighbourhood Plans if it meets a community need and should be of a scale appropriate to the settlement ie not have an adverse impact on infrastructure. The site assessment process will identify those sites within the BUAB, brownfield/PDL and will count up the number of potential new homes from these priority sites before considering allocating any greenfield land for development. The Steering Group are preparing a very detailed Village Survey. The Survey will give us some firm information about how YOU feel about our village and how you want to see it develop in the future. We will be looking for ALL residents to complete the Survey and lucky draw prizes will be on offer as an incentive. www.ashingtonpc.org.uk

Thakeham News After many years the Abingworth development is finally taking shape. If you haven’t yet visited the show homes, do take a look. By the time this piece is published, proposals to change the mix and numbers of houses in phase 2 of this development will have been aired, and residents’ feedback gathered at an open event on 12 November. A further planning proposal is expected. Delivery of our new community facilities draws closer. The new Pre-School will be ready for September 2017 and our new village hall, sports facilities and shop should be up and running by 2018. This is a great opportunity and the Village Hall Trust would welcome interest from volunteers to join them at this exciting time, to help create the vision for ways to use the new facilities and promote more vibrant village life. Contact our parish clerk to get involved (via www.thakehamparish.co.uk).

On other fronts, we know that road safety is a major concern for our residents and we continue to work with the developer on traffic calming options around Abingworth. We have also been talking with WSCC Highways regarding reducing speed limits elsewhere on the B2139, and creation of a “safer route to school” in view of the move of Thakeham First School to the Rydon site in 2017. At time of writing, our Neighbourhood Plan is undergoing inspection by independent examiner; the outcome will be reported on our website when available. Alan Hunt, Parish Council Chairman.
