fiveways Help keep our city’s trees!

PLANT YOUR POSTCODE Look around. We’re lucky, there are trees everywhere – but now your help is needed to keep our city leafy. You may have noticed that many of our city’s beautiful trees are getting old and succumbing to disease. Add to this the challenge that our council faces in the battle to add or even replace trees in this time of austerity, and it becomes clear that residents’ help is needed. Our trees: Brighton & Hove’s trees are particularly special because we hold the National Elm Collection. Now the city is home to some of the rarest varieties of elms in the world. It’s important that the number of elms we have is at least maintained. A vast number of trees were planted in Victorian times when the city rapidly expanded. Now those trees are reaching the end of their lives, so action is needed to replace them. How to take action Create a group in your area: It could be that a few trees in your street have been lost over time and you’d like to see them re-planted. Or you’d like trees where there were none before. You can help to make that happen. A local group of, say, one or more streets can decide to have new trees. Brighton & Hove City Council will arrange for the site to be checked. If it’s suitable, the group can club together to raise funds. The council can then order the trees and plant them. Trees are ordered in September for planting the following year. Become a Tree Champion: You can help identify trees in your area which look sickly or you could take on a research project. Get your local school involved: It’s important that the coming generation are aware of our city’s tree legacy. Help fund trees across the city: Make a difference with a single donation or a regular donation by standing order. Where it’s already worked: A Hove resident who has benefitted from new tree planting, funded by residents, says: ‘A new tree outside our house, to replace one long dead! Soon home to birds and insects. A pleasure to look at. We love it!’

This season Brighton Cougars has three junior girls’ teams at U11, U14 and U16 and two highly successful women’s teams, including a Division 2 National League team which reached the play-off semis in only their first year. Our women’s local league team were also unbeaten Sussex League winners two years in a row in 2016/17 and 2017/18. Many of our girls have also made it onto the Basketball England development pathway and one is currently part of the GB U16 squad. Our women’s teams also include current and ex GB and international players. Our coaching line-up is also second to none: led by Australian born Mat Glasson who has more than 20 years’ experience at all levels of basketball. Many of Mat’s players have gone on to achieve scholarships at the Australian Institute of Sport and in the US; and to represent Australia at junior and senior international

fiveways This article is from the Royal Voluntary Service...

ROYAL VOLUNTARY SERVICE At Royal Voluntary Service (previously known as WRVS) our volunteers have been playing their part in hospitals since the NHS began in 1948. Today, they still give over a million hours of voluntary service each year. Locally, at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, our volunteers generously give their time to support the six coffee shops across the site; new volunteers are always welcome and much appreciated. Our cafés offer visitors and busy staff a welcome hot drink, sandwiches and healthy snacks. The Big Trolley Push was launched in Brighton earlier this year and volunteers, staff and visitors to the hospital are benefiting from the ward trolley service. It’s often the little things that can brighten a patient’s day; a daily paper, a light snack and a friendly face can make a big difference.

to make others smile! As a trolley volunteer you’ll be amazed by the effect one conversation, one laugh from someone who spends their days alone, or a heartfelt ‘thank you’ can have. Royal Voluntary Service is all about bringing communities closer together, whichever side of the trolley you’re on! There’s nothing lonely about our volunteering roles! You could end up building lasting friendships with both the patients and the other volunteers, enriching your life as much as your company enriches theirs. A recent member of our trolley team Linda Sheldrake from Saltdean is enjoying her experience with us. So much so that she has recommended a friend to join us too. “I love the interaction with the staff and patients and feel I am enhancing their day.” Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest volunteering organisations in the country. Throughout our history we have been inspired by people’s generosity, by those who give the gift of time through voluntary service, doing small deeds for a greater purpose. Today, we are continuing this work in order to support vulnerable people at home in their communities and relieving the pressure from NHS services, offering a friendly face in times of need. If you would like to give a few hours of your week to your local hospital please contact us for a chat and find out what we have to offer. Please call us on 01273 664976 (9.30 - 4.00) or visit www.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk

It is often the little things that can make a big difference and, after listening to patient feedback, the team at Martlets realised that making changes to the hospice rooms would enable patients to enjoy some real home comforts in the precious time they have left. These changes could include having a sofa or a chair big enough for loved ones to cuddle up on, a homely colour-scheme or even fun-themed children’s bedding for when youngsters are staying with their mum or dad. Designer Sarah Moore lives in Sussex and has a very personal connection with Martlets.  Her close friend Emma, a popular designer who worked with her on “Money for Nothing”, was a patient at the hospice. Viewers of the show have been fundraising for Martlets in her memory.  Sarah said, “Martlets delivered amazing care for Emma when she was really poorly. I’m so happy to support the Cuddle Up Appeal; small design changes can have a big impact on wellbeing and quality of life, and it’s important to balance great design with the practicalities of care.” Ruth Tierney, Martlets’ Ward Manager, said, “Time is such a precious thing, time to love and be loved, time to say all the things that need to be said and time to cuddle together. With fundraising help we could make simple improvements that would make a world of difference to our patients.  We want to create a space where it’s easy for loved ones to snuggle up, talk, laugh and comfort each other together.

News from Brighton & Hove City Council...

BRIGHTON COMEDY GARDEN

HMOs PLANNING CONSULTATION

19th-23rd JUNE

Stephen K Amos

Residents’ concerns about high concentrations of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) have led to a proposal to extend the current planning rules across the city. In most of Brighton & Hove, property owners wishing to convert a family house into a shared house or HMO for up to six people do not currently have to get planning permission. Larger HMOs of seven or more occupants already need planning permission. Give us your views on the proposal by visiting ‘open consultations’ at: www.brighton-hove. gov.uk/consultation. The consultation runs from Monday 3rd June to Monday 15th July.

The first-ever Brighton Comedy Garden plants its roots this June with five nights of sensational stand-up from the likes of QI star Alan Davies, Sean Lock from 8 Out of 10 Cats, German comedy ambassador Henning Wehn, multi award-winning Sara Pascoe, The Last Leg’s Adam Hills, lo-fi master David O’Doherty and many, many more. Each night a star-studded bill will raise the roof off a giant big top seated venue set in Preston Park. Comedy-lovers can choose from a series of meticulously curated shows starring comedy heavyweights like Tom Allen, Ed Byrne, Stephen K Amos and Rachel Parris, cult heroes including Bridget Christie and Tim Key, and exciting breakthrough talent such as Rose Matafeo, Rosie Jones and Phil Wang. Alongside the comedy, there will be a selection of street-food traders, plus craft beers, summer-inspired cocktails and more. Tickets are available from: www.brightoncomedygarden.co.uk.

Currently five wards have controls through an ‘Article 4 Direction’ which means that in the following areas small HMO conversions need planning permission: • • • • •

Hanover & Elm Grove Hollingdean & Stanmer Moulsecoomb & Bevendean Queen’s Park St Peters & North Laine

If agreed it will mean that planning permission will be required for a change of use from a family home to a small HMO anywhere in the city. A citywide approach aims to make the rules consistent for everyone, provide long-term certainty for developers and residents and prevent concentrations getting too high before action is taken. It would also bring the planning regulations in line with HMO licensing which is already in force citywide.
