WELCOME TO THE FIVEWAYS DIRECTORY!! It’s time for most people to go back to work or school (although there are some of us who haven’t been away!) There’s plenty going on in September if you do have some free time, though. There are two weekends of Heritage Open Days, the start of the annual Older People’s Festival and giant snails will soon be arriving on our streets, so make the most of the last days of the mild weather. This month’s featured local person is Sally Griffiths of Blakers Park Café, Gary Mepsted is back with another great book review and Marianne Clark tells us some of her favourite sporty reads. We also have an article from Hollingbury Golf Club, who tell us why the club is a great place to visit even if you don’t play golf. Happy reading!

fiveways Meet a familiar face from Blakers Park...

FIVEWAYS FACE – SALLY GRIFFITHS Sally Griffiths owns and runs Blakers Park Café, which is open every day of the year (except Christmas Day) when the weather is clement. How long have you been running Blakers Park café? I have been running the café for over 15 years. When I took the café on it was a complete shack; with a few improvements we were up and running and we were the first café in the area to provide espresso style coffees. We continue to improve the café, making it an interesting find for local residents. It’s a true delight. What sort of food do you serve? We serve lovely coffees using Drury special roasted beans, freshly ground on the day, and an array of teas including fresh mint tea, lemon, and fresh ginger. We offer the most amazing ice creams which are organic from Marshfield Farm in a tub or in a waffle cone. We have an array of milkshakes, children’s and adult sandwiches freshly prepared to order on Real Pâtisserie bread, homemade sausage rolls, Scotch eggs, samosas and veggie options, and also we do amazing breakfasts! We also do outside catering for business and private clients. You’ve had a lot of vandalism at the café this year... Unfortunately over the last 12 months we have had a torrid time due to continuing vandalism at the café. In November last year the café was set on fire but thanks to a local dog walker who spotted it the fire brigade were called. Following this event the whole of the railing fence around the café was destroyed. This is very sad and very trying, especially as we are a community café with a big heart looking after all the kids in the park.

fiveways Look out for a snail near you...

SNAILSPACE ARRIVES... The Snailspace art installation will be coming to the streets of Brighton & Hove on 15th September (until 18th Nov). 50 giant snails, individually decorated by different artists, and over 50 junior snails painted by local school children, will be located all over the city, sponsored by local businesses. #BeMoreSnail is the motto of Snailspace, which is being organised by Martlets Hospice in conjunction with Wild in Art. The idea behind #BeMoreSnail is to encourage people to slow down, enjoy the moment and spend more time with the people they love. It resonates with the philosophy behind the life-changing care provided by the hospice, and, at the end of the event, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for it. The event has the backing of some of the city’s celebrities, including DJ Norman Cook, crime author Peter James and vlogger Alfie Deyes, who will have their own giant snails on the route. A comprehensive map and an interactive app will also support the sculpture hunt. The map will be available on the Snailspace website, at Martlets shops across the city and at Churchill Square.

Quality Kitchen Facelifts

Snails will be placed at some of the locations used for the Snowdogs, including Preston Park, and a few new locations have been added – all will be revealed on 15th September! For more information and to keep up to date with all details of the campaign, visit www.snailspacebrighton.co.uk or follow @ snailspacebh on social media.

HOLLINGBURY GOLF CLUB... THE JEWEL IN FIVEWAYS’ CROWN Many of you will be aware of Hollingbury Golf Course at the top of the hill with its stunning views all over Brighton and Hove and beyond, topped off with the 2,000-year-old Hollingbury Fort, but you may not be aware of the club itself and all it has to offer.

As a non-members club Hollingbury Golf Club is open to all; forget the stereotypes – there is no dress code or stuffy rules to adhere to and a warm welcome is extended to all visitors. Even if you don’t play golf the club is a great place to visit; with arguably the best views in the city it is a great place to escape to for a lunch or arrange to have a business meet-up and enjoy a coffee. The newly completed extension to the building opens up to outside seating and if you need to clear your head and get some space I can’t think of a better spot to visit and amazingly it is all within minutes of the busy Fiveways junction. If you are a complete novice or are looking to start playing golf again Hollingbury is a great place to begin, with an understanding pro to offer lessons, and a

members’ representative is on hand to greet you if you wish to be shown around. The golf club is far more than just a golf club but more accurately it is a community centre and venue. It has a great space available for hire with its own separate bar ideal for parties and weddings. There is also a separate conference room available for meetings. A variety of weekly groups and classes already meet in the Hollingbury Golf Club with more being lined up. Please realise what a great facility we have locally and pay it a visit!!

fiveways Sophie Sheinwald tells us about her passion for photographing dogs...

SOPHIE SHEINWALD PHOTOGRAPHY What do you most like about living in Brighton & Hove? What I love is that there’s about two degrees of separation when I meet people out and about. Despite being a city, Brighton & Hove offers a real sense of connection and community. We see you are a photographer specialising in dog photography...what do you like most about working with dogs? I’ve been an established photographer since 2011, but those who know me know I’m mad about dogs. My obsession became greater recently since borrowing dogs, so I decided to officially offer dog photography services. I plan to create tangible artwork for people to celebrate this unique fluffy relationship. Dogs play a vital role in people’s lives. I love how their unconditional love provides a much needed connection with humans. I started a ‘Street Dog’ photography project in Manhattan nine years ago which rolled out a series of exhibitions called ‘8 Reasons I Ought to Get a Dog’ - it was a giggle and I may do it again. What is the biggest challenge when photographing dogs? With many dogs it’s their unpredictability. For a photo shoot, it’s ideal for me to know about the dog’s personality and characteristics. I’ve been getting a bit of help from dog trainer Lorna of Eli Manoeuvres. She helps me tap into the human-canine relationship. What would a typical shoot consist of? Initially, I like to establish the lifestyle and interests of the dog and family, this directs the style and location of the shoot. The relationship people have with their pets is unique, so there is no typical shoot - it’s a collaboration of ideas worked out with the owners. A shoot can go from artistically dramatic - the studio setting - to casual and fun out and about. I’m all about the visual story and I’ve decided to offer some packages with a dog story book - I’m excited about that! The relationship with pets is a treasured one, having that encapsulated with photography is wonderful.

You said you borrow dogs but will you ever get a dog of your own? One day I’ll probably get a dog but in the meantime I’m happy to play aunty! Is there somewhere we can see your work? Yes, my website sophiesheinwald.com with my dog gallery and sophie_snap on Instagram. Also I have recently brought back to life my ‘8 Reasons Why I Ought to get a Dog’ Facebook page and invite all dog lovers to contribute their dog stories.

fiveways Litter, litter everywhere...and then, at last, came the Tidy Up Team...

JOIN THE TIDY UP TEAM While strolling through our lovely city do you find yourself muttering expletives under your breath, picking up half empty plastic bottles and lager cans and surreptitiously putting them in your fellow residents’ green bins (while hoping that no one can see you)...and then, to cap it all, boring your friends and family to tears with rants about all that dropped litter and anti-social behaviour? Well if this is you – help is at hand! Put all that negative energy into purposeful action instead and join the “Tidy Up Team” today! The Tidy Up Team is a city-wide team of volunteers who pick up litter in parks and streets and also campaign and educate around littering. It was the brainchild of Garry Meyer, a local city ParkRanger. He is passionate about our green spaces and realised that there was an enormous pool of local residents out there who felt the same way. He wanted to tap into this and the TUT was born. This was 14 months ago and it has grown and grown - there are now 200 members. Volunteers get atwohour training session and their own high-vis vests (with logo) and litter picker stick. Volunteers can either go out individually – fitting it around their busy lives – or in groups.The response from passers-by is positive and it is quite a therapeutic experience – leaving a previously

littered environment clean and tidy. Ah what bliss... As you can see, all that negative energy can be put to productive use after all! Please contact us for more information: Cityparks.volunteers@brighton-hove.gov.uk www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/tidy-up-team 01273 292929

fiveways Our book review from Gary Mepsted...

A LOVE STORY

THE OTHER WIFE

BY EMILE ZOLA

BY MICHAEL ROBOTHAM

Oxford World’s Classics, paperback, £8.99

Sphere, hardback, £19.99

I remember bingeing on Zola in my early twenties, reading every novel I could lay my hands on, no matter how dreadful the translation. A particularly egregious American translation of La Bête Humaine springs to mind. With the recent appearance, courtesy of Oxford World’s Classics, of some new titles, my love for the author is about to be reignited. Zola’s 20 novels which comprise the Rougon-Macquart series do not, fortunately, need to be read in order of publication. The reader may pick and choose, depending on taste and what’s available. With that in mind I have chosen A Love Story which ideally suits my current disposition. Hélène Grandjean, a beautiful widow, lives a quiet life in Paris with her sickly daughter, Jeanne. When Jeanne falls ill, the married local doctor, Deberle, enters their lives. His growing admiration for Hélène gradually turns into mutual passion, a passion whose consequences cannot be foreseen. A Love Story is just that, but this being Zola, love is depicted in all its guises, many of them venal, self-serving and cruel. This is not always a comfortable read. My French is, alas, far too poor for me to be able to read Zola in the original, but I’m confident that Helen Constantine’s translation is as faithful as possible to Zola’s vision of the story. The prose has a vigour and an energy which drives the narrative. The descriptive passages are beautifully modulated and perfectly convey the novel’s terrible emotional undercurrents. If you’ve not read Zola before, here’s a wonderful introduction.

I’ve just got sufficient space remaining to mention Michael Robotham’s new crime novel, The Other Wife, which delves into the family life of Robotham’s much loved character, forensic psychologist Joe O’Loughlin. When Joe’s father is brutally attacked in his home, he discovers the strange woman sitting at his father’s bedside in the hospital is his other wife. The image Joe has of his parents and their marriage is shattered beyond repair, and he feels compelled to investigate the crime and uncover dark family secrets. This is a quieter, more considered novel than we’re used to from this author and, despite my occasional longing for more action and the presence of a twisted and dangerous serial killer, the novel held me throughout. The ending is, like that of Robotham’s Close Your Eyes, both brilliant and genuinely moving. Michael Robotham is to be applauded for his more contemplative, almost literary approach here. The Other Wife might not win him new fans, but those existing admirers of his work will be more than satisfied.

fiveways Our regular fitness column from Marianne Clark…

SPORTY READS... I spend a lot of time doing sport, and even more time telling others to, and, if I’m not too exhausted after that, what better way to unwind than reading about it. There are some great books which cover the sporting spectrum, but, should you have some spare time between hill reps on Preston Drove, here are some of my favourite sporty reads. The Secret Race — Tyler Hamilton There are now quite a number of great books on the subject, but, in my view, this is absolutely the BEST book about the systematic and institutionalised doping in professional cycling and the book that really lifted the lid on the Lance Armstrong scandal.

through swarms of deadly jellyfish and shark-infested waters ... after a series of unsuccessful attempts over a 30-year period.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running — Haruki Murakami The reflections of a novelist on the influence running has had on his life. A must-read for any recreational running enthusiast.

Running With The Kenyans — Adharanand Finn A humorous account of an average British club runner who heads to Africa to run with champions to see if he can transform his marathon running the Kenyan way.

Find A Way — Diana Nyad Diana Nyad is a US sports journalist and endurance swimmer, and this is an account of her amazing 110 miles non-stop swim (at the age of 60!) from Cuba to Florida

A Life Without Limits — Chrissie Wellington The inspirational story of Chrissie Wellington’s rise from rank amateur to multiple world champion Ironman triathlete. If you have ever fancied dipping your toes into the world of triathlon, read this first.

fiveways A chance to visit new places...

HERITAGE OPEN DAYS... Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE. This year’s Heritage Open Days will be 6-9 and 13-16 September. This year there’s a rare opportunity to get a tour of the Jewish cemetery in Florence Place off Ditchling Road, the oldest Jewish cemetery in Brighton. It was set up in 1826 and is notable for its burials of famous Brighton Jewish residents. There are tombstones to the murdered Police Chief, Henry Solomon, Levi Emanuel Cohen, Founder of the Brighton Guardian Newspaper (1827), and Sir John Howard. Tours of the cemetery take place on Sunday 16 September. Pre-booking (by 10 September) is required through Eventbrite at www. eventbrite.co.uk/e/jewish-burial-ground-florence-placetickets-46838173237. Other places to visit in and around Fiveways include the air raid shelter at Downs Junior School, the Duke of York’s Cinema, St Peter’s Church Preston Park, Preston Manor and Preston Rock Garden.

fiveways Hannah from the Pet Shed gives her advice on your pet problems...

PET PROBLEM CORNER Welcome to our feature helping pet owners around Fiveways with advice. This month most concerns have been regarding keeping dogs entertained when normal walks have been suspended due to the hot weather. Why shouldn’t I be walking my dog during the day? If you observe any pet during hot weather you will see that most naturally seek out shade and keep movement to a minimum. Dogs only sweat through their paws and pant to circulate air through their bodies. Cats do sweat through their coats and often groom themselves more as evaporating saliva helps cool them too. This inability to quickly cool can mean that dogs can easily suffer from heat stroke if exerted and hot pavements can also burn paw pads. Never walk your dog during the hottest part of the day. Generally it is safe up to 19°C (68°F)so early morning or late evening is best. And of course NEVER LEAVE YOUR DOG IN A HOT CAR!!! So, how do I keep my dog entertained in this heat? You are probably finding that your dog is more subdued and lethargic during the hottest part of the day. If this isn’t always the case a paddling pool or shallow

bucket (Tubtrugs are great!) is fun. You can also provide long lasting chews which can be calming. Choose something natural such as a tendon, pizzle or antler, or a raw treat such as a marrow bone. If you feed wet food as part of their normal diet you can also freeze this inside a Kong. There are lots of fun toys on the market that can be frozen or soaked in water to encourage hydration but always provide fresh drinking water in a bowl too. Frozen iced treats are becoming more widely available at pet shops or you can make your own “Pupsicles” (there are lots of recipes online) or freeze a bowl of water with goodies hidden inside. Some dogs also just like crunching ice cubes! However, if you suspect your dog has heat stroke don’t give ice, wet your dog down with room temperature water (paying particular attention to arm pits and the underside) and take them straight to the vets. Hannah is the current proud pet parent of 16 including her dog (Bourbon, a regular at her shop), three cats, Starsky the tortoise, two snakes, turkeys, chickens and guinea pigs. Have a pet related question? Drop a line to Hannah at thepetshed1@gmail.com or pop in and see her at The Pet Shed, 100 Preston Drove, BN1 6EW.

fiveways News from the council...

COMMUNITY CONSULTATION ON CITY PLAN PART 2 Communities across Brighton & Hove now have a further opportunity to comment on the second part of the city’s local development plan.

29

City Plan Part 2 will sit alongside the adopted City Plan Part 1 to support the provision of more new low-cost homes, local jobs and transport, and health facilities over the next decade. Take part in the consultation online at www.brightonhove.gov.uk/cityplan-part2 City Plan Part 2 focuses on good management of development and ensuring good design, high quality and sustainable development. Its housing policies propose tougher controls on houses of multiple occupation (HMOs). The Plan ensures well designed, purpose-built student accommodation and identifies two further sites where it can be built. A total of 85% of housing sites will come forward on brownfield sites and some urban fringe sites have been identified to provide a positive opportunity to build family

and affordable homes, as well as create improved and publicly accessible open space. Most of the urban fringe will however be protected as green space and there will be four new local green spaces. Encouraging new and safeguarding community facilities is also at the heart of City Plan Part 2. A new policy will help protect public houses as community benefit. Important shopping parades that provide people with access to facilities like newsagents and pharmacies within walking distance of home are recognised. City Plan Part 2 identifies sites for 3,611 new homes to help meet the city’s housing target. When adopted, it will become part of the formal decision-making process of deciding planning applications. The consultation is open until 13 September.

fiveways Fiveways’ very own toy shop...

FIVEWAYS SHOP...WIGWAM TOYS Taken over by the new owners in 2012, Wigwam Toys stocks everything from Sylvanian Families to independent products. The shop is community-led, meaning it provides what the community requires and requests. It mainly sells luxury brands, such as Djeco, Sylvanians and independent artists’ books. Due to its relationship with the local community, it promotes products created by independent sources, such as eco lunch boxes, created by a local dad. When you no longer want to use the lunchbox for its purpose, it can be recycled and is biodegradable. Looking into the future, Wigwam Toys are taking part in American Express’s Small Business Saturday later on in the year. As well as this, they will soon start stocking Halloweenrelated toys and products. They are also hoping to host a book weekend in the near future. Wigwam Toys are on Instagram and Facebook, where they post updates of their products in use. They are also in the process of creating their website, which will have a soft launch in September or October. This means you will be able to purchase their wonderful goods online in time for Christmas! As well as toys, the aesthetically pleasing shop sells a range of wrapping paper and occasion cards. The shop is open 9.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday as well as now opening on Sundays from 11am to 4pm. Daisy Scott A citywide event...
