We hope you had a lovely Christmas and found at least a bit of time to relax with family and friends and enjoy a little bit of a break. So another year is here and with it the dreaded New Year’s resolutions! I struggle to get out of January with mine still intact…I think probably the way to go is to actually make resolutions that are realistic and one can actually give oneself a fair chance of achieving! We have some exciting things planned for the publication this year with a bit of a shake-up planned which should benefit both advertisers and residents alike! I will leave it hanging there as a mystery for you to try and guess but all I can say is…watch this space!!!

Which four British cities have underground rail systems?


fiveways Meet a Fiveways resident who’s just published his first novel...

LOCAL AUTHOR – DAVID STEPHENS David Stephens lives in Havelock Road. He works part-time at Brighton University as a Professor of International Education and has just published his first novel, Purely Academic. How long have you lived in Fiveways? Since 1987. My wife Claire had been a student at Sussex and knew and liked the area. We hear you split your time between Fiveways and Peru. How did that come about? A year ago, Claire was offered a great job at a prestigious school in Lima and given that she’s accompanied me to jobs in Ghana and Norway in the past, I thought it was time she got to follow her dream. I also managed to persuade Brighton University to allow me to continue part-time - and so we’ve had a fantastic 18 months so far in Lima. And it’s given me that time to write. Tell us more about your novel... It’s a campus satire in the tradition of Malcolm Bradbury and David Lodge. Universities are currently at a crossroads leading either towards privatisation, austerity, and ‘economic engagement’ or back to scholarship, teaching and the generation of knowledge for its own sake.

My main character, a junior lecturer, Gurney Sleep, is searching for three things: recognition, promotion and sex – and not necessarily in that order - in the misguided belief that the first two might lead to the third, whilst at the same time trying to hold on to the values that took him into university life in the first place. I guess the novel is also about the fun to be had with language, and importantly how we gain knowledge, particularly self-knowledge. Is it based on Brighton University? In the UK I’ve worked at Sussex, London and the University of East Anglia, and the university in this book – the 17th most applied to in fact – is an imaginary place. But I’m sure those who’ve studied at a South Coast university may recognise some of the geographical similarities as well as the winds of neo-liberalism blowing across the Downs. Are you planning on writing more novels? I write short stories too but at the moment I’m working on two possible projects, one set in Barranco, the suburb of Lima where we live, and the other a follow-up satire set in a city not far from here, provisionally titled ‘Hove, Actually’. “Purely Academic” by David Stephens is published by Arena Books.

fiveways The latest column from Nelson, a four-legged Fiveways resident...

NELSON’S WALKS My favourites include sniffing amongst the graves in the churchyard of St Peter’s Church, chasing squirrels and finding lost tennis balls behind the tennis courts! Start: On foot you can access the park from all sides. By bus you can stop on London Road or Surrenden Road and if travelling by car there is usually plenty of parking inside the park. Do check notices for charges though. Walk length: Anything depending on how far you want to wander. Time: As long as you want. Terrain: Paths run through the park or you can venture onto the grassy areas. Plenty of space to throw and catch balls and walk off leads away from traffic. Other: A choice of two dog-friendly cafés with a great selection of drinks and snacks. The Chalet is located in the centre of the park and the Rotunda is near the south entrance by the pond and rose garden. Also check out the velodrome at the north of the park. The walk: Just explore to your heart’s content!

Map data ©2017 Google

Living in Fiveways means we have lots of wonderful places to visit on our doorstep and Preston Park is a great example with many hidden treasures for a dog to explore.

Do let me or Hannah (at The Pet Shed) know if you like this walk and if you have any favourite walks you would like me to try out – ending in a nice dog-friendly watering hole. Hannah can be contacted via email on thepetshed1@gmail.com

fiveways News from Varndean School of a February show...

VARNDEAN SCHOOL PRESENTS “MY FAIR LADY” Varndean School is proud to present its new musical theatre production of Lerner and Loewe’s classic hit My Fair Lady to brighten up this winter. It will be our 28th annual large scale musical production in a row. Rehearsals have been intensive since the start of term, in September, as we aim to maintain our high standards of acting, singing and dancing. The show will play over three nights celebrating our extremely talented students as they bring to life the story of a world famous phonetics expert and British upper class bachelor, Henry Higgins, who is willing to bet he can pass off a Cockney flower girl, Eliza Doolittle, in high society as a duchess just by teaching her to speak proper English. With a cast, crew and band numbering over 100 students we look forward to showcasing the wonderful talent of our students and hope you will be able to join us. My Fair Lady explores society’s prejudices toward class and gender while wrapped in a spectacular score with such memorable tunes as “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”, “I Could Have Danced All Night,” and “The Rain in Spain.”  It was an unconventional plot for a 1950s musical but was an instant hit then and remains a favourite the world over decades later.

fiveways Update from a local group...

REVIEWING THE YEAR: FRIENDS OF HOLLINGBURY & BURSTEAD WOODS At this time of year it’s good to look back and reflect on what we’ve achieved over the past 12 months: thanks to our dedicated volunteers 2017 was a particularly good year. We began with our social get together, which brightened the gloom of January. Over a very enjoyable meal we celebrated finally finishing our new information boards, which had taken months of planning and tweaking of the design - look out for them by the entrance points to the woods. Our other notable achievement in the past year is the designation of several of our woodland footpaths as Rights of Way, which gives them official status: this involved a lot of work by two committee members who collated evidence of use of these paths over a 20 year period and submitted this to BHCC who thankfully accepted this. The Council has now erected the way-marking posts and it also prompted them to put up posts to indicate the Permissive paths too. We also helped create a new path to encourage walkers not to cross the golf fairway, but to use a safer route through the woods. Other tasks undertaken were the glade clearances, hedge and path maintenance, cutting back the rank growth on the chalk mounds and bee bank to help the wildflowers to flourish, coppicing the hazel for the first time and carrying out the less savoury job of picking up litter dropped by others!

Professional Dog Walking Services

Our aim is to support the health & happiness of your dog with a first class dog walking service. Services include: • Group walks • 1-2-1 walks • Saturday walks

Walking only small groups at a time enables us to focus on individual needs and ensure a happy and healthy group dynamic. Call 07730 446 456 Visit www.outdoorhounds.co.uk

More enjoyable events were our flower ID walk, our guided walk by a local medicinal herbalist, our Awayday to the Knepp Estate, famous for its rewilding, and the picnic after our July work session where the topic of conversation was the rare sighting of a mating pair of white-letter hairstreak butterflies on the thistles we had been nurturing specifically for them. If you’ve made a new year’s resolution to keep fit, consider joining us and get some fresh air and exercise and help your local woods at the same time. We meet on the first weekend of the month, alternating between Saturdays and Sundays (10:00 - 13:00) with a break for refreshments and a chat. We supply the tools and training; all you need do is turn up in suitable footwear, and bring gardening gloves if you have them. We meet at the old flint barn by the western entrance to the Roedale allotments. More information on our website www.fhbw.org.uk - all welcome!

fiveways A local group who reunite lost or stolen dogs with their owners…

BRIGHTON DOGWATCH Brighton Dogwatch are a small, non-profit making, local group who have a huge following of over 10,500 people on their Facebook page. This support is invaluable due to the heart of their purpose being reuniting lost and stolen dogs in the local area with their rightful owners. In addition, Brighton Dogwatch rely on their membership income (of just £5 per year) to enable them to support other local charities who work to enhance the lives of dogs in our local community and strive to promote the very best care, welfare and responsible ownership. Brighton Dogwatch have recently devised a Community Award Scheme, open to local charities and organisations. The first winners included ‘Give a Dog a Home’, who find forever homes for dogs from UK and abroad. Their cheque from Brighton Dogwatch for £250 will be used towards food, medical treatment, vaccinations, vets fees and travel costs when helping a dog settle in the Sussex area. The Brighton branch of the RSPCA received a cheque for £100. They will be using the money to help people on low incomes to neuter Bull-type dogs in order to help slow the influx of unwanted Bull-type breeds entering the rehoming process.

It doesn’t matter to us what make, model or age of vehicle you need looking at – we have enough experience to help you get your vehicle up and running safely and efficiently. Get in touch to see how we can help you keep on motoring.

Services we provide: • Interim Service • Full Service • Major Service • MOT For more information visit:

fiveways Our book review from Gary Mepsted...

A NEW YEAR’S LIST OF RECOMMENDED BOOKS New Year, it’s a time for lists, the best of this and that. The following isn’t a ‘best of’ as such, more a few books that didn’t get a full review but which are, nonetheless, worthy of recommendation. Let’s kick off with Martin Amis’s chewy and caustic collection of essays, The Rub of Time, which cover the years 1986-2016. Amis, very much a Marmite writer (though I personally find him delicious), is on top form here, wonderfully insightful pieces on some of his favourite authors: Bellow, Nabokov, Larkin etc, alongside elegantly humorous meditations on sport, Las Vegas and John Travolta. Oh, Trump also gets a mention. A gorgeous pick ’n’ mix book. You never know what you’re going to get, but I guarantee you’ll be pleased with the result. Crime next in the shape of Michael Robotham’s new thriller, The Secrets She Keeps, which finds the author in Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins territory with this genuinely gripping tale of two young women, Agatha and Meghan, whose lives connect and unleash a truly shocking outcome. Set in London, Robotham’s novel effortlessly shows that in contemporary crime writing he has few peers. Read it before January’s out. You will not be disappointed.

Still on crime I’m thrilled to recommend Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s short, devastating novel, The Pledge, which was first published in 1958. On the day before his retirement a police inspector, Matthai, promises the family of a murdered girl that he will find her killer. Abandoning his plans for a quiet life he continues to investigate the case as a private citizen and in so doing drives himself to the brink of insanity. A marvellously intelligent and shrewd commentary on the detective novel and a chronicle of one man’s descent into a crushing existential crisis, The Pledge is an absorbing and brilliant addition to the genre. Note: Sean Penn’s fabulous cinematic reworking of the novel is currently available on Netflix if you fancy a break from the overly sweet froth no doubt being served up on TV over the festive season. It’s not, I think, been a stellar year for new fiction, so I’m grateful to my partner, Emily, for recommending Lucia Berlin’s superb short story collection, A Manual for Cleaning Women. Berlin died in 2004 and slipped off the literary radar. Her autobiographical stories of desperate, messed-up lives can stand beside those of Raymond Carver, John Cheever, or Richard Yates. No publication details this month to save space. Your friend Google can help you out. Gary Mepsted

fiveways Welcome to the January edition of Fiveways Gardens...

IN THE GARDEN...JANUARY 2018 Happy New Year to you all, and time to ring the changes. After 12 years of writing Fiveways Gardens, I’ve decided to hang up my quill. As some of you know, I moved from Waldegrave Road to sunny Worthing a few years ago, in search of a bigger garden. I still have clients in Brighton and Hove, and will continue to take on new clients around here, but it’s time to hand an opportunity to someone else and for you all to hear another gardener’s tales. To all of my readers, I wish you all the best with your gardens, and most importantly, that you take the time to be outside more. A few tips before I go.... Although January is more of a planning month, there are still plenty of things you can do in the garden. On a dry sunny day, mooch about the garden and hoe out the annual weed seedlings before they get a chance to establish. Also check birds have access to water and food. Collect up leaves from lawns and put on the compost heap. If a really cold spell is forecast, wrap insulation around outside taps to stop them freezing. Tasks that you know are a good idea, but somehow never get round to doing, could be handed over – maybe think of it as a post-Christmas treat for yourself.

Witch hazel ‘sunburst’

Cleaning pots ready for spring and summer planting, cleaning, oiling and sharpening tools, clearing dead leaves from ponds, sorting the compost and even tidying out the shed and greenhouse are all jobs that you could ask a gardener to do. Redefining lawn edges is also well worth the effort. There are some great products on the market that are excellent at keeping your lawn area clearly defined. There are edges out there for all budgets, ranging from plastic and wood to steel. How about planting up some containers for winter interest? If you have already planted up things like winter pansies and they’re looking a bit tired, then give them a pretty serious hair-cut and within weeks they’ll bounce back with lots of new flowers. While on the subject of pots and containers, don’t forget to take saucers away so that they can drain properly – not many plants are happy sitting with their roots in water. Very best wishes Lisa

fiveways Our regular fitness column from Marianne Clark...

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU? Put down the Baileys and step away from the chocs! The time for indulgence is over. Yes, it’s that time of year when you must resolve to change your slothful ways and transform yourself into a lean, sleek, detoxed athlete with boundless energy, the clearest of complexions and a capacity to inspire and amaze others with your selfdiscipline and extraordinary achievements. Or not. How many people make health and fitness-related resolutions each January? Probably most of us! And how many fail within days or even hours? Sadly, a huge proportion. Why? Most often because people set goals which are doomed to failure. Sometimes we fail because our goals are not specific, ie “I will eat healthily”, “I will drink less” or “I will get fit”. Sounds great in theory, but if you don’t establish any rules about how and when, it just won’t happen. Sometimes we fail because our goals are too extreme, eg “I will not eat any sugar” or “I will go to the gym five times a week”. Anything involving dramatic change or deprivation is unsustainable. So, if you feel a new, improved you coming on in 2018, think carefully about how you make those resolutions.

SPECIFIC and MEASURABLE: Be really clear about what it is you are doing and why. “I want to be able to run 5k or ... do 30 press-ups” are both specific and measurable. If you can’t measure your progress you will soon lose focus and motivation. ACHIEVABLE and REALISTIC: For a committed couch-potato, resolving to run an hour a day isn’t realistic, and an unattainable goal is demotivating. Why put the effort in if you can’t get there? Instead give yourself smaller goals along the way that involve change and resolve, but are more obviously achievable. “Jog for 5 mins a day in week 1.” TIME-SPECIFIC: This is critical. An open-ended resolution, eg “I will get fit in 2018”, actually translates as “I might start tomorrow, but probably not.” However, “I will run 5k by the end of March” gives you a clear and achievable focus which will give you a timeframe to work to. So, now you know how to do it, you are already one step closer. Bonne chance!

fiveways An update on the council’s crowdfunding campaign...

SAVE MADEIRA TERRACE CAMPAIGN REACHES ITS TARGET One Victorian seafront terrace, 128 days and £421,053 to raise. Brighton & Hove’s Save Madeira Terrace crowdfunding campaign reached its goal one day early, with 2,162 backers and with £45,011 more than the intended target. The crowdfunding campaign attracted widespread support from local residents and businesses, and had backing from a range of celebrities including local superstar DJ Fatboy Slim, Chris Evans, Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Charley Boorman and Damon Hill. Council Leader Warren Morgan, who initiated the crowdfunding campaign, said: “The suggestion to crowdfund came from residents following the rejection of the bid for a government grant earlier this year.  It was an ambitious idea and a step into the unknown, but the option to do nothing wasn’t something we were prepared to do.  Together with the city’s residents, businesses, VisitBrighton and heritage organisations, we’ve taken the first and crucial step in saving a valued part of our local heritage. “I will not stop praising Jax Atkins and her team of local volunteers, all the artists, shops, small traders and others who donated prizes, everyone who bought raffle tickets and the shops that sold them, raising an incredible £16,700+.  I want to say a huge thanks to all the companies which responded to our request to donate, and to the 2,000 residents, visitors and people who love Brighton & Hove and made individual donations.  It’s been a tense but exciting four month campaign but we’ve done it!” Soho House and Brighton Seafront Regeneration made the final pledge of £50k which took the fund over the line.  Nick Jones, Founder & CEO of Soho House, said:  “Helping with the Save Madeira Terrace fund was important for Brighton Seafront Regeneration and Soho House, as part of the future of the seafront.

Over the last year we’ve been getting to know the local community. We’re looking forward to seeing the area returned to its former glory, with the iconic arches restored, so we can create something for the people of Brighton.” Niraj Dattani, Head of Partnerships at the council’s crowdfunding partner Spacehive, added: “The Save Madeira Terrace campaign has been the biggest campaign we’ve ever seen and it has been fantastic to see how it’s brought the city together. With over 2,100 backers and many more raffle tickets bought by the public, the campaign has generated civic pride on a huge scale.”
