fiveways If you’d like to cut down on your plastic use, read on...

PLASTIC-FREE SHOPPING IN FIVEWAYS A new shop that’s completely free of plastic packaging has just opened in Ditchling Road. Store Brighton is run by Heather Banks and Ceri Lones. We asked them more about it... What are your backgrounds? Between us we have over 20 years’ experience in ethical, organic retail with products supporting family health and well-being - natural bodycare, nutritional supplements etc. Alongside this we have worked together as managers in a complementary health clinic that specialises in children’s healthcare. Our work lives to date have given us a depth of product knowledge and awareness of the ever evolving world of sustainable, green living. Why did you decide to start up the shop? Complete exasperation at the widespread overuse of needless plastic packaging, particularly in supermarkets! There is a huge shift in consciousness now but consumers often don’t know where to start in reducing plastic packaging. That’s where Store comes in! A modern take on an old idea. Customers can reuse and refill containers and cut down on wasteful wrapping. We are local to the area and love the thriving independent retail community. We want to contribute to this by providing an easy-to-use plastic-free environment that is hands on and personal and provides a chance for customers to change shopping habits if they want to. Some people make the shift overnight whilst others take a more gradual approach. What can we buy from you? A range of dispensed dried goods for your store cupboard - rice, pasta, pulses, nuts, dried fruits, seeds, herbs and spices. Household essentials too - cleaning and laundry products plus bodycare basics - shampoo, hand soap, shower gel, all in liquid refills. Plenty of tasty treats for kids and adults alike. Customers are invited to make their own nut butters and nut milks at our ‘make it yourself’ bar. We make a point of stocking as many locally made products as possible. We welcome feedback and suggestions from customers. So if you don’t see what you need just let us know and we will look into it.

00

Do we need to bring our own containers? Yes. We encourage shoppers to bring their own containers but we also sell jars, bottles and cloth produce bags should anyone need them. What’s your favourite product? Heather - soapnuts! These amazing nutshells are so versatile and can be used as a laundry detergent, surface cleaner, anti-fungal pet wash and pesticide. Once used they are simply composted. Ceri - nut milk! Fresh nut milk made on the premises without the need for a Tetra Pak. Perfect! Store Brighton is at 253e Ditchling Road. For more information visit www.storebrighton.co.uk or phone 01273 809521.

fiveways Join Varndean School for a spectacular show...

VARNDEAN SCHOOL PRESENT SWEENEY TODD... Varndean School are thrilled to present our 2019 production, Sweeney Todd, a story about bloodthirsty revenge and crafty corpse disposal. The tale became a staple of Victorian melodrama and London urban legend, and has been retold many times since, and now it’s our turn! The show will play over three nights (14th, 15th and 16th February) celebrating our extremely talented students as they bring to life the story of Todd, a barber who dispatches his victims by their throats as they sit in his barber chair. His victims are duly dispatched into the basement of his shop, generally causing them to break their necks or skulls. In case they are alive, Todd goes to the basement and “polishes them off”. With a cast, crew and band numbering over 100 students we look forward to showcasing their wonderful talents and hope you will be able to join us for a captivating performance, with a live orchestra; the show is set to be spectacular. Tickets will be available to purchase and more information about how this can be done will be communicated nearer the time.

Please check our website, www.varndean.co.uk, and social media pages for updates @varndeanschool. “They all deserve to die. Even you, Mrs. Lovett Even I. Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief. For the rest of us death would be relief.” Stephen Sondheim, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”

NEW ARCHAEOLOGY GALLERY 01273 530977 / 07554750499 AT BRIGHTON MUSEUM Discover the compelling story of our ancestors who lived in Brighton & Hove through the centuries from the Ice Age to the Saxons. At the heart of the exhibition are seven forensically accurate 3D facial reconstructions revealing the faces of people, some of whose remains were found in and around Brighton & Hove from the Ice Age to the Saxon era. Using modern scientific technology, research into the lives of these people has discovered a wealth of mystery, drama and tragedy through childbirth, malnutrition, toothache and possibly murder. Now you can see what they looked like and learn their reallife stories.  The brand-new gallery is named The Elaine Evans Archaeology Gallery after its major benefactor and has been designed to appeal to families and children as well as students and people interested in archaeology and history. This is the first new gallery devoted to ancient history in Brighton & Hove for over 20 years following a public petition from the Brighton & Hove Archaeology Society.  One of their members, Brighton & Hove resident Elaine Evans BEM, has kindly donated a substantial grant to the museum to enable the gallery to be created. Elaine Evans said; “For many years history and archaeology have fascinated me. One marvellous day I spotted a Stone Age flint blade by chance in my back garden in Hove, brought to the surface by worms.

CHRIS RIDDELL AWARDED OBE... Fiveways resident Chris Riddell has been awarded an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the New Year’s Honours list 2019 for services to illustration and charity. Chris is an illustrator, writer and Observer political cartoonist, and was the Children’s Laureate from 2015 to 2017. His most famous books are the Goth Girl series and The Edge Chronicles, co-created with another Fiveways resident, Paul Stewart, and the Ottoline series. He’s received the Kate Greenaway Medal for children’s book illustration three times. Chris said: “I feel immensely proud to be recognised in this way and rather humbled when I think about the truly important job done by teachers, librarians and my fellow writers and illustrators. We want to put books into the hands of children so they can discover the great gift that is reading for pleasure. In these uncertain times we need great children’s books Chris’s Ludwig Van Beetlebrow illustration for more than ever!” “Goth Girl and the Sinister Symphony”

fiveways Our book review from Gary Mepsted...

ERNEST HEMINGWAY ON WRITING EDITED BY LARRY W PHILLIPS Let me start by wishing readers a very happy 2019. Whilst thinking of a (non-Christmas) gift for my lovely, and fiercely dedicated, writing partner, I found, buried on my shelves, a small, slim volume of Hemingway’s musing on writing and the writing life. I bought the book many years ago, thoroughly enjoyed it, and then forgot about it. I’ve long ceased to keep track of the books I own, and every so often an exploration of my library will 21 reveal some neglected treasure, such was the case with the Hemingway. Although, like many other writers, Hemingway said it was bad luck to talk about writing, he managed to say quite a lot on the subject in letters and within his novels and short stories. Ernest Hemingway On Writing contains the best of his reflections on the nature of writing and the writer, and dispenses much advice and wisdom on the craft, as well as the art. As I invariably say when reviewing what looks like a specialist text of limited appeal, this beautiful little book should delight fans of the author (I confess I’m not one of them), those attempting to write themselves, and those with a more general interest in literature. Be warned, this is not a writing manual per se - unlike Stephen King’s classic bearing the same title. King’s book is also an essential read, but is much more instructional than the Hemingway, which is compiled from many sources written over a period of years. Hemingway’s book is not a slimmed down creative writing course, more a meditation on the process and, as such, is infinitely more valuable than a proscriptive parade through issues such as point of view, dialogue, characterisation, etc.

POCKET BOOKS, PAPERBACK, £11.76

What I particularly like is Hemingway’s honesty about being a writer, how hard and unrelenting it is, how terrifying it is to live with almost certain failure. If you harbour romantic notions about authorship, this book will be a very rude awakening indeed. The editor, Larry W Phillips, is to be commended for his diligence in gathering, and ordering, the material into a lovely and enlightening book. I am so glad to have rediscovered it. I hope you will be equally glad to discover it. I shall end on a quote: I love to write. But it has never gotten any easier to do and you can’t expect it to if you keep trying for something better than you can do. From Selected Letters. Gary Mepsted

fiveways Hannah from the Pet Shed gives her advice for pet owners...

PET PROBLEM CORNER Did you know that 45% of households in the UK own a pet, with over 1 in 4 homes having a dog and 1 in 5 a cat? As a cat and dog owner I am often have more concerns about my cats than my dog. Perhaps because they are out of my sight during the day doing their own thing. Questions about cats seem to always have a theme though and fall broadly into the two questions I am frequently asked below. Why is my cat so fussy with her food? First check if the food is stale. You need to ensure that you buy the right size bag of dry food to last around four weeks. Naturally preserved food will start to go stale and deteriorate after six weeks. If you keep wet food in the fridge between meals your cat may be missing the smell. 25 Bring food up to room temperature before serving. Other top tips: • Stick to a routine and don’t be tempted to offer treats between meals. • Ensure bowls are clean and feed when the room is quiet. • Feed cats in multi-cat households separately. • Try changing the flavour or brand and rotate between foods you know they have liked before. They may just be bored.  If, however, not eating is out of character and continues for more than 24 hours do consult your vet in case there is an underlying issue.

My cat is losing fur and/or peeing on the rug indoors. Why!? These are both classic signs of a stressed cat. Ask yourself if your situation has recently changed. Cats are very sensitive and can be affected by things such as new babies, relationship breakdowns, moving house etc. This could also be the response to a trauma. One of my cats completely changed overnight from a confident, friendly puss to a terrified cat who did not come indoors for six months during the summer. He gradually recovered but fur loss due to over-grooming was the last thing to go. If you think your cat is stressed try the following: • Regularly play with your cat and ensure you are available for cuddles. • Provide perches, scratching posts and hiding places. • Have a safe space. • Stick to a routine. • Consider using calming products. If you know a stressful situation is imminent, plan for it. Have a pet related question?

fiveways Local personal trainer Liz Fulford gets a new client ready for a half marathon...

MONTH FOUR

TRAINING FOR A HALF MARATHON

To set the scene it was over 10 years ago when a new local personal trainer contacted us at the Fiveways Directory wanting to promote her fledging business. What transpired was a series of articles culminating in the editor running the New Forest Half Marathon. Now 10 years on the challenge is whether the same can be done again with no running since and another 10 years on the clock!! Liz Fulford: Tim has struggled over the last few weeks with a foot injury, back issues and a heavy cold. It’s unlucky to 27 have injuries when training for an event but certainly not uncommon. Tim has found it frustrating especially as he had reached a point of being able to see the end goal and actually enjoy running again. However, it is important not to give up and stay in this zone for too long and that’s where a personal trainer helps. Focus on the positive and make this an opportunity to improve in other areas so that when you return to the sport you love you are a better and stronger athlete. With this in mind, Tim will be working on increasing his muscular endurance through strength training and with a focus on his core in order to support any weakness he has in his back. We will work around his injuries and increase the strength in his supporting muscles to aid his recovery. Just remember that it’s not the end if you can’t carry on with a specific training plan, there are always other options and ways to get fit and stay fit!

Percentage Body Fat

Tim's body fat continues to decrease due to his current exercise regime of resistance workouts, and his healthy eating habits. Well done Tim!

Tim (the client): Oh dear!!! A number of setbacks this month have knocked the project off the rails a bit. The foot issue came back once the mileage went up…truth is it never really went away. Having always suffered from very flat feet, it now, at the age of 50, seems to have caught up with me!! Without going into the mechanics I do have a physical issue. I visited the physiotherapist on Havelock Road who was great and quickly got to grips with what was going on and came up with a programme of ice and exercises to try and get me running again. Having missed four weeks off my programme the reality now is that I have fallen well off target for the Hampton Court Half Marathon. All said and done I am keen to try and turn this all into a positive and persist with the running but with the understanding that if this isn’t possible to find a new activity that provides all the benefits that I have enjoyed from getting into regular exercise again. fiveways directory February 2019
