fiveways Very sad news about a much loved local celebrity...

FIVEWAYS WILF – OBITUARY Wilfred – known as ‘Fiveways Wilf’ – was an extraordinary character who didn’t subscribe to the generally accepted notion of ‘cat’. Adopted with his brother Alfred from the RSPCA in 2009 by the Burley family of Lowther Road, it was only in the past couple of years and following Alfie’s death that Wilf took to wandering the neighbourhood. Following initial surprise and slight confusion at the sight of a big red fluffy Persian out and about on his own, Wilf’s slow purposeful meanderings, his love of greeting passers-by and appreciation of neighbours’ sofas, plus his enjoyment of watching tradespeople at work 5 and visits to local shops and businesses quickly made him a popular sight around Fiveways. Wilf’s fame spread worldwide after a Facebook page was created for people to share their photos of meeting Wilf around the neighbourhood (and so that his ‘Staff’ could keep tabs on his adventures), creating a friendly online community of over 2,700 followers from over 40 countries. A demand for Wilf ‘merchandise’ led to badges and Christmas cards being sold with all profits donated to Lost Cats Brighton – Wilf raised over £1,000 to help this local charity care for cats less fortunate than himself. For the past year, Wilf didn’t wander Fiveways on his own due to his increasing arthritis and worries over his terrible road sense, so instead took accompanied walks to visit favourite places, notably Beaumonts Estate Agents and The Flour Pot Bakery where he hoovered up crumbs and had his own chair to sit and people watch. ‘Wilf Meet-Ups’ regularly attracted 50+ people from all over the country keen to make a fuss of him and take a selfie. Sadly, Wilf was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease in May of this year and, despite treatment, the illness quickly progressed. He passed away gently with dignity and love at home on Friday 6th October, aged 16.

Wilf’s fans have acknowledged how he brought the local and online community together by generously raising over £2,000 to pay his vet fees and are calling for a permanent memorial to be placed at Fiveways to honour this unlikely and unusual local character. Wilf’s ‘Staff’ extend their grateful thanks to everyone who has supported them through this sad time. Wilf’s memory will be celebrated at a Christmas Open House where Wilf cards, tree decorations and Christmas gifts will be sold in support of Lost Cats Brighton. Further information about the memorial and Open House dates can be found at www.facebook.com/fivewayswilf

fiveways Featuring a great local business...

BUSINESS VETERAN OPENS LOCAL KITCHEN FACELIFT BUSINESS Dream Doors, the UK’s largest kitchen facelift retailer, has just appointed its long-standing Business Development Manager, Andrew Hart, as the new franchisee for the Brighton area. Andrew has worked for Dream Doors since 2007, starting out as a design consultant for the Gosport-based showroom, and then progressing to join the management team supporting the brand’s 75 franchisees. After a successful career as an employee, Andrew decided that he wanted to help clients first hand, becoming the owner of Dream Doors Brighton and Hove. “I have loved my time at Dream Doors,” he says. 13as “The service we provide is incredible; we can offer little or as much as any homeowner could want in their kitchen. And I already have years of experience and knowledge of our products.” Andrew chose the Brighton area as it was incredibly unique, being the home of many varying points of interest. He believes it to be one of the few cities in England still in tune with a sense of community and friendliness. “I’m excited to be working in the area, and to be working with local fitters that I’ve introduced to the business,” Andrew adds.

Quality Kitchen Facelifts

“We’ll continue to provide a superb product and a cost-effective service to local people for many years to come.” Troy Tappenden, MD of Dream Doors and long-time friend of Andy’s, had this to say: “Although it saddens me that Andy will be leaving his initial role, it also brings me joy that he is still part of the Dream Doors family, delivering a fantastic kitchen replacement service to clients whilst absolutely loving the experience from start to end.” Dream Doors focuses on replacement kitchen doors and worktops. This service helps clients achieve a brand-new look to their kitchen without the time, hassle and money spent on a full kitchen refit. Does your dreary old kitchen need an update? Then visit Andy today. Dream Doors - new life for old kitchens.

fiveways Meet Duncan Tree of Volunteering Matters...

FIVEWAYS FACE – DUNCAN TREE Duncan Tree of Edburton Avenue is Head of Policy and Performance at national charity Volunteering Matters and was awarded an MBE this year in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to health and social care. What do you like about living in Fiveways? It’s been a great community for our two daughters to grow up in. We’ve been here since 2000 and apart from my childhood years in Rottingdean, this is the longest I’ve lived anywhere, so I guess it feels like home now. It has quick and easy access to the Downs (I’m a runner), two beautiful parks and the briny, of course. Matt does a great haircut in Solution barbers and one of the 15best pubs in Brighton, i.e. the Mitre in Baker Street, is a brisk 10 minute walk. How long have you been working for Volunteering Matters? Over 13 years; I joined from the Local Government Association. I had only planned to stay for a year but it was such a fantastic twelve months that it was difficult to leave. Whilst I primarily lead our policy work at a national level, I’ve also been pleased to be able to help with the establishment of local projects - such as LifeLines in Brighton and Hove. LifeLines runs activities and one-to-one support schemes to help older people stay more active and better engaged with their communities. Tell us more about the charity... We were established in 1963 by Alec Dickson as CSV (or Community Service Volunteers). Alec had previously founded VSO. Our aims now are as they were over 54 years ago: to promote and enable volunteering and social action for people of all ages and from all backgrounds.  We want a society where everyone can participate in the lives of their local communities through volunteering and social action. We believe that by investing in people through volunteering we can reduce inequalities and isolation, improve health and well-being and so build a stronger, more inclusive society.  Social justice is fundamental to what we do and something that I am passionate about. How did you feel when you were told you’d been awarded an MBE? I had absolutely no idea that I had been nominated for an award when the letter arrived from the Cabinet Office back in the Spring. For a brief moment I thought I’d been April Fooled and had to check the calendar. It’s quite a humbling experience to realise that you’ve been nominated and feel valued in this way by your peers and colleagues. I thought my dad would have

been proud; he died in his early 60s after a very long battle with multiple sclerosis. So, I took myself on the train to Eastbourne - his home town - went for a stroll along the prom, had a pint with him in The Marine and raised a toast to all the kind folk who’ve been such great sources of inspiration and support throughout my career. What do you like to do when you’re not working? Family and friends are very important to me and I’m fortunate enough to have most of them living locally and be able to spend time with them. I like to think of myself as a ‘useful’ cook and if ‘home alone’ will ensure that there’s music on in every room (yes, it is necessary..). I love running on the Downs and am committed to flying the flag for those of us over the age of 50 at British Military Fitness sessions in Preston and Hove Parks.   For more information, visit volunteeringmatters.org.uk. fiveways directory November 2017

DEMENTIA IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS!

QUIZ QUESTION SEVEN : ’The Umbrellas’ is a famous painting by which French Impressionist?


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

IN THE GARDEN...NOVEMBER 2017 Over the past few weeks, there’s a question that has cropped up half a dozen or so times. “Is winter a good time of year to do the garden?” Locally to us, the answer is a resounding “yes”. So long as below zero temperatures and lots of snow for days at a time isn’t forecast – unlikely – there’s not a lot that can’t be done. Sad looking lawns still seems to be a criticism many people have of their own gardens. Apart from the condition of the lawn – weed content, moss, bare patches etc - the main problem is lack of definition between lawn and beds. Grass spreads by creeping, so putting a barrier, or decorative edge around it will provide that definition all year. There are some discrete and stylish metal edges available, or for a more traditional look, consider timber or brick. A bit of TLC for your lawn over autumn is a good idea. A quick rake over to get out the dead grass; spike it all over with a fork and then brush in some top dressing. They’ve got plenty up at the garden centre at the racecourse and a few bags are all you need. This is also a good way of tackling small dips in the lawn. Try re-seeding bare areas too. If you have lots of shade in the garden, often created by your own or neighbours’ large shrubs and trees, either try some specialist lawn seed for shady areas or re-think that bit of the garden – if you have a permanent mud patch, then maybe it’s time for “plan B”... Autumn / winter is a good time for renovating or renewing tired or damaged shrubs, trees and perennials. We tend to forget that, as living things, plants have a limited life span too. Many so-called problem plants that people point out to me in their gardens are simply plants that are past their best or are in the wrong place. A sunny border 10 years ago when planted might now be quite dark with large shrubs and trees casting lots of shade. Careful pruning of shrubs and trees can make a big difference. Crown lifting and thinning is worth considering for plants that you can’t part with. Finally a reminder to check bonfires for wildlife, like hibernating hedgehogs, frogs and toads, before lighting them. Any pots, buckets, bowls etc not in regular use should be put on their sides over winter, so they can’t trap unsuspecting frogs, who are great at finding water, but then sadly can’t escape. Best wishes, Lisa

fiveways Another great Martlets sculpture trail is coming next autumn…

GIANT SNAILS TO FOLLOW THE SNOWDOGS The wait is finally over. Superstar DJ and local business owner, Norman Cook (AKA Fatboy Slim), took to the stage at Theatre Royal Brighton on 12th October to reveal the identity of the next public art installation to be hosted across the city by Martlets. Three giant snails, two uniquely decorated by artists, were unveiled. Snailspace is the much-anticipated follow-up to the hugely successful Snowdogs by the Sea, which raised £310,000 for Martlets and contributed in excess of £10m to the local economy. Martlets are once again working with Wild in Art to bring a spectacular public art installation to the city in autumn 2018.  A host of giant snails will sneak their way onto the streets next year, each one uniquely decorated by a different artist.  Businesses will be able to sponsor their own sculpture.

37

Imelda Glackin, CEO Martlets, said: “The snail sculpture resonates wonderfully with the work we do at Martlets. Our lifechanging hospice care helps people do the things they love with the time they have. Photo by Simon Dack/Vervate

In this fast-paced city it’s often hard to remember to slow down and appreciate the things in life that make us smile. The strikingly painted snails across our city will be a constant reminder to take a moment to enjoy the time we have with the people we share our lives with. The snail also carries its home wherever it goes. It’s a comforting reminder that being home or feeling at home is incredibly important to the patients and families we help and support.” Many businesses have already pledged their support and Norman Cook (AKA Fatboy Slim) had no hesitation in getting involved with the next campaign: “I was delighted to be asked by the Martlets to be a sponsor and ambassador for Snailspace. I have a personal connection to the hospice and am always happy to support their fundraising events.  But I’m especially keen to be involved in another art event as I can honestly say that for my kids, especially my daughter Nellie, having a Snowdog was the coolest thing I’ve ever done!” There will be 50 giant snails available for sponsorship in iconic locations around the city. Businesses are encouraged to get in touch with Martlets as soon as possible to secure their involvement.

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

NELSON’S WALKS November is an interesting time to be a dog. Autumn walks mean lots of leaves to frolic around in, bright chilly days and the beginnings of fireside sleeps after a hard walk. Stanmer Park is the perfect place to explore, with woods to offer some protection if it is windy or raining, big open areas for running and playing ball, and two dog-friendly places to stop for a drink. Start: Stanmer Park car parks – there are a few dotted around the park but I prefer the car park at the top, after you drive past the church. Walk length: anything depending on how far afield you 39 want to go. Time: as long as you want. Terrain: can be quite muddy in places with lots of tree roots to trip you up if you venture into the woods. Other: a choice of two dog-friendly places to stop. The café in the village is dog friendly, provides drinking water, a friendly cuppa and a good selection of cakes. Stanmer House is a little more upmarket but still allows well behaved dogs on the lead. The walk: Leave the car park and explore!

Come & talk to us about your mortgage & insurance needs

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.
