These local residents are setting a great example...

Hanover Rubbish Friends

Wandering about Hanover one day I noticed I wasn’t the only one picking up litter and tidying around municipal bins. Then I heard an item on Radio 4 Woman’s Hour about a local group somewhere in England called Rubbish Friends. They brought people together to tackle fly tipping and collect litter in their semi-rural neighbourhood. The group had a dual function of mitigating isolation whilst helping to tackle an issue that left people fuming.

I thought what a great idea to replicate in Hanover. There are now quite a few Rubbish Friends groups dotted about the country, all independent initiatives alongside many other schemes to involve the public in keeping neighbourhoods tidy. Hanover Rubbish Friends has been going about a year and meets the first Saturday of the month at 10.30am (with occasional exceptions) outside The Village in Islingword Road. Litter pick-up sticks, gloves and rubbish bags are supplied by Brighton and Hove City Council. We regularly have a dozen people of all ages along for an hour and

try to target hotspots that we have identified or residents have mentioned. We get appreciative feedback and comments. From April we will be even more visible with new branded high-vis vests made possible with the support of local firm SO Compliant, proceeds from the Hanover Beer Festival and graphic artist Lisa Holdcroft.

The educational side is important as prevention is better than cure. Our presence sets a good example. Readers may know that in some parts of Hanover, street contacts already target HMOs (Houses in Multiple Occupation) and students. They welcome tenants with flowers or wine and provide information especially about rubbish and recycling. First communication is then a positive experience instead of a complaint. It won’t work with everyone but we are keen to build on this type of activity.

We want to make sure our efforts are consistent with the TUC (Trades Union Congress) Charter on Volunteering, especially to support Ian, our excellent paid street cleaner. The Charter recognises the value of volunteering to community life. The Council and its workforce are responsible for rubbish and recycling in the city, but public services work best when there is a partnership with the public and we play our part as well. Do join us one morning and make some rubbish friends. Next litter pick-up 10.30am Saturday 6 April outside The Village. Look out for postings on the Hanover Community Noticeboard.

A new exhibition at Brighton Museum...

All the King’s Horses... A new display at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery from 2nd April will celebrate rarely seen images of the Royal Stables and Riding House and George IV’s love for all things equestrian. The show tells the story of the king’s passion for horses and his creation of magnificent new stables in what is now The Brighton Dome. The stables, created between 1803 and 1808, was one of most ambitious and largest buildings of its kind in England, with room for at least 44 horses, as well as accommodation for stable staff and an adjoining Riding House used for exercising and training. Coinciding with the restoration of the Corn Exchange (the former Riding House) the exhibition will give visitors an opportunity to see unusual and rare

© Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove images, sourced exclusively from the city’s own archives and collections.

Some of the highlights are a set of images of the interior of the stables in the 1820s, with delicately drawn horses and stable staff, together with colourful views of the interiors during World War I when the stables were used as part of a hospital for wounded Indian soldiers. Other exhibits are pictures of George IV and Queen Victoria shown with splendidly adorned horses outside the Royal Pavilion, as well as merciless caricatures poking fun at George. A highlight of the display will be the magnificent silver-gilt Brighton Cup, decorated with the Prince of Wales’s feathers, and an image of the Marine Pavilion, commissioned by George in 1805 for the winner of the Brighton Races. His own horse Orville unexpectedly won the race, and George gave the cup to Chris Wilson, who had sold him Orville a few months earlier. A letter from George to Wilson, written at the Pavilion, will be displayed with the cup. All the King’s Horses is at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery from 2nd April to 29th September 2019.

An article by the Hanover & Elm Grove Communities Forum...

A new voice for the neighbourhood Local groups and residents have come together in an attempt to forge closer ties for the good of the wider community. The Hanover and Elm Grove Communities Forum brings together community organisations, charities and residents, with the aim of working together to make our neighbourhood the best it can be. The first AGM took place at the Hanover Community Centre last December. At the meeting, Caroline Lucas MP spoke about the importance of communities coming together to achieve more. The Communities Forum encourages participation from all local community organisations and is open to anyone living or working within the Hanover and Elm Grove ward, including the Pankhurst and Phoenix Estates. We aim to find positive ways for groups to help each other, foster community spirit and deal with local issues to benefit all of our residents. In February, the Forum organised a community event with Rachel Chasseaud, the assistant director of environmental management at Brighton and Hove Council. The purpose was to give local residents the opportunity to share their concerns relating to refuse and recycling. One concern raised by a resident was the mess left after kerbside collections. Rachel stressed the fact that crews have now been told they must clear up any mess left after collections have been completed. However, she said that residents have to take responsibility for sorting recycling correctly. Some residents were surprised to learn that if 10% of the items in a recycling box are not on the list of items collected door to door, the contractor will have the whole box incinerated. Rachel listened to suggestions, which included decorating communal street bins, and said she’d come back and discuss a local action plan, in six to nine months. The Forum has recently been encouraging people to attend public meetings relating to the redevelopment

Caroline Lucas addressing the Forum

of the Brighton General Hospital site. Details of meetings are on the Forum website (see below). The Communities Forum meets monthly and is looking at ways to widen participation, and attract a more diverse range of participants, so that we can be truly representative of the people in the area. We’re particularly interested in hearing from young people and those from different ethnic groups. We are currently putting together a communityled action plan, which will look at ways to create a cleaner, greener, safer and more cohesive neighbourhood for everyone in the ward.

News of this year’s City Reads book...

“Let Me Be Like Water” by S.K. Perry City Reads is an annual citywide reading festival, when one book is selected for everyone to read. This year it runs from 23rd April to 12th May as part of the Brighton Festival and the chosen title is “Let Me Be Like Water” by S.K. Perry, who at 29 years old is the youngest writer ever chosen. Sarah Perry was born in Croydon in 1990. “Let Me Be Like Water” was published in hardback in 2018. She currently lives in Leeds and is working on her second novel. She said: “I have a deep love for Brighton and Hove and feel really moved that, through City Reads, “Let Me Be Like Water” will reach more of the city’s readers. It›s such an honour, and I really can’t wait!” In the book, songwriter Holly is in a state of limbo, having impulsively escaped to Brighton following the death of her boyfriend Sam. The solitude she had so craved in London leaves her feeling stranded and alone in her grief. It is when she meets Frank, a retired gay magician, that the tide begins to turn. Frank has experienced his own heartbreak and offers Holly companionship and solace. Gradually, as she is introduced to his eclectic group of friends, all with their own stories, she starts to heal. “Let Me Be Like Water” is a book simultaneously about nothing and everything: about the humdrum yet extraordinariness of everyday life; of lost and new connections; of loneliness and friendship. Sarah Hutchings, the Director of City Reads, said: ““Let Me Be Like Water” is an exquisite, lyrical meditation on grief and romantic loss. As soon as I started reading it I was struck by the grace and strength of Sarah’s writing. She writes about Brighton with heart and passion, using the city’s glorious imperfections to remind us all why we are drawn here. It was a joy to read.”

You can see S.K. Perry live at the Brighton Festival in conversation with writer Bridget Minamore (Sunday 12 May, Brighton & Hove High School, 5.30pm, £8, tickets from brightonfestival.org). Other highlights of the 2019 City Reads programme include The City Reads Book Quiz (25 April), New Writing South/Waterstones event (30 April), Literary Salon (2 May) and City Reads Supper Club (8 May).

An opportunity for young artists...

Hanover Arts Trail – Children’s Drawing Competition Hundreds of artists across Brighton will be opening their doors and inviting you in as part of the city’s Artists Open Houses this May. Picture by Helen J Holroyd Hanover plays a big part in this, as one of ten fabulous trails made up of craftspeople and artists eager to share their work. This year the Hanover Arts Trail is made up of nine participating houses, including three new homes and the huge Phoenix artists’ studios. It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the area and see all the creativity that goes on behind what are usually closed doors. Families are a big part of our neighbourhood and we would love children to get creative and take part in the Hanover Arts Trail Drawing Competition. The theme for the competition this year is ‘Aesop’s Fables’, tying in with the Children’s Parade theme ‘Folktales’. The winners will have their work framed and exhibited alongside established artists on the Hanover Trail – making them some of the youngest artists displaying their work! To enter you must create a drawing, painting or collage representing ‘Aesop’s Fables’ on A4 paper and hand it in no later than Thursday 25th April either to a participating school or to Q Estate Agents on Lewes Road with your name, age and school on the back. There are three age categories: Pre-School – age 0-5, Infants – age 6-8, Juniors – age 9-11 Good luck!

See local reviews of this business at

Winners will be announced on the Hanover Arts Trail website www.hanoverartstrail.org and will be exhibited amongst the Hanover Open Houses during the month of May. See if you can spot the winners as you follow the trail! Thank you to all the local businesses sponsoring the Hanover Arts Trail: Barrie Alderton, The Constant Service, Energy for Life, The Geese, Hilly Laine, Lunamoon Mosaic, MacMan, Q Estate Agents and Starfish and Coffee.

This month’s article from Hanover Action...

Make our city a weed-killer free zone


01273 235019





Hanover Action has proposed that targets in our neighbourhood plan should be to make Hanover a weed-killer free zone, but what we really want is the whole city to be a free zone. In March 2016 Brighton and Hove City Council adopted a motion promising to phase out the use of glyphosate (the world’s most widely sold weed killer, often known under its commercial name of Roundup), however it is still being randomly sprayed in our streets; you can see it withering the weeds in the pavement locally. The World Health Organisation have said it is probably carcinogenic to humans and the impact on bees and our ecosystem is incalculable. BHCC have the power to ban pesticides on all public land under their control. They say the use in parks is now limited to fine turf bowling greens and cricket squares but that alternatives for weed control on highways and pavements are impracti-

cal or too expensive. Most of us would rather have the weeds or undertake to clear our own bit of the pavement. Lewes, among other towns and cities in the UK, has banned all use of pesticides including glyphosate – let’s make Brighton and Hove next. It’s not just the city council; gardeners and allotment holders are also using weed killers bought from their local garden centre. Due to habitat loss and the large quantities of pesticides used in UK agriculture, wildlife such as bees and birds increasingly seek refuge in towns and cities. People buy bee-friendly plants, bird seed and then a big bottle of Roundup to deal with weeds! We all need to become more aware of the impact these toxic chemicals are having on the environment, our precious pollinators and our health. The Pesticide Action Network produce a free guide to gardening without pesticides. Sign the Pesticide Action Network postcard, ask your candidate in the local election whether they have signed the Pesticide-Free Pledge, tell your friends and family about the campaign and get involved: www.pan-uk.org/brighton-and-hove.

An exhibition at Phoenix Brighton...

Solo show by Siddharth Gadiyar

Phoenix Brighton, 10-14 Waterloo Place Wednesday to Sunday, 11am-5pm until 21st April 2019, free entry Siddharth Gadiyar is exhibiting his solo show of paintings at Phoenix Brighton until 21st April. He attends Project Art Works, an artist-led organisation based in Hastings that works with people who have complex support needs. Siddharth is an artist of instinct. He is an extraordinary and prolific image maker who constructs a new work of considerable scale each week in a threehour supported studio session at Project Art Works. Although Siddharth’s paintings occasionally contain representational imagery, his intuitive approach is rooted in an unfettered exploration of pattern and colour, returning time and again to his signature motif, the circle.

Level Sunday Market returns The Level Sunday Market is back on Sunday 7th April from 10am to 5pm and will take place once a month throughout the spring and summer under the elm trees on the Level.

Siddharth in the studio, © Project Art Works

Siddharth’s clear intention and his swift decisive action result in bold and beautiful paintings that are full of purpose and free from self-conscious restraint. Project Art Works say: “It has been a privilege to work alongside Siddharth and gain an insight into his process and vision.” This exhibition will challenge the preconceptions audiences may have of people with complex needs and invite a wider and more diverse audience to engage the gallery. “Sid is calm and focused when he is making work at Project Art Works. Art and painting have such a huge, tremendous, positive impact on his otherwise chaotic, challenging and complex world of autism.” - Susmitha, Siddharth’s mother

This year’s dates are: 7th April, 19th May, 16th June, 7th July, 11th August and 1st September. The market showcases local independent traders, makers, artists, chefs and bakers. There will be a tasty Sunday menu of global street food; fresh cakes and savoury treats with vegan and gluten-free options; plus fresh produce, handmade and vintage gifts and treats, toys, accessories, clothes and collectibles

News from the council...

Easy-to-use Recycling A-Z

Brighton & Hove City Council have launched a new A to Z guide on how you can reduce, reuse, recycle or dispose of almost 180 different materials. The easy-to-use guide gives detailed explanations of what to do with everything from aerosols to mattresses and nappies to Tetra Paks, to ensure we’re all being as environmentally friendly as possible. The A to Z also gives advice on what to do with materials like rubble, plasterboards, asbestos, bathroom fittings, furniture, white goods, batteries and metal. In the case of plastic bags, first of all the A to Z suggests using a reusable bag rather than a plastic one. If that can’t be done, the next suggestion is how to reuse the plastic bag, for instance as a bin liner. If that’s not possible, the guide says whether it can be recycled – plastic bags cannot – and then how it should be disposed of. The guide launches the council’s new drive to help residents recycle the correct things far more. In turn, this will help reduce the large number of recycling bins contaminated with non-recyclable products.

To use the guide, log onto www.brighton-hove.gov. uk/recycling. Click on the ‘Recycling A to Z’ link and you can then search 179 items alphabetically. Would you like to make new friends?

An article by Hanover resident Jason Palmer of the Sussex Heart Charity...

Heart Health... Dig out those walkin’ shoes It’s that time of the year when the clocks go forward; we ‘lose’ sleep by jumping forward in time by one hour. It’s as close as any of us will get to understanding what it is like for Dr Who and her companions! Despite this, there are good things that come out of daylight saving time. Most of us will find that we no longer rise in the morning in darkness and, as the days warm up, we are more likely to spend time outdoors; this added exposure to sunshine enables our bodies to produce more of the super vitamin D. Our immune system benefits significantly, regulating the absorption of minerals such as calcium - essential for healthy bones and teeth. Venturing outdoors for just 10 minutes at noon without sunscreen will enable the body to produce enough Vitamin D for the day – if you intend to be out for longer, then obviously use a good quality SPF to protect from sunburn; low levels of vitamin D bring on feelings of tiredness and can lead to depression. We can eat ourselves healthy too, increasing vitamin D by adding to our diet - oily fish, mushrooms, eggs and milk.

Monies raised from this event will be used directly to benefit cardiac patients and their families across Sussex, not only current projects but also helping purchase new innovative equipment and provide new types of services which would not otherwise be funded by the NHS – ensuring that the people of Sussex continue to have access to one of the UK’s leading centres of cardiac excellence – based at The Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

The Brighton Marathon is back on 14th April...

Brighton Marathon Weekend 2019

A fun event for runners...

Brighton Run2Music

The tenth Brighton Marathon – now the eighth largest marathon in Europe - takes place on Sunday 14th April. Those who finish their 10th Brighton Marathon will be hailed as the ‘10/10’ runners and will receive an additional special 10/10 medal and T-shirt.

There will be a Brighton Marathon Event Village on the beach by Madeira Drive (Friday to Sunday), featuring big screens, food and drink outlets and entertainment throughout the weekend.

On Saturday 13th April, the 2019 Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races (age 7-17) take place from 10am in Preston Park.

Events on Sunday 14th April begin at 7am with the inaugural BM Ride – the city’s first ever closed-road cycling event. The course is 50km long and will start and finish on Hove Lawns. At 9am the BM10k starts in Preston Park.

The Brighton Marathon itself starts at 9.45am from Preston Park, finishing on Madeira Drive. Last year Stuart Hawkes of Tipton Harriers took the men’s title for the second year running with a personal best of 2:22:32, while the women’s race was also won by returning champion Helen Davies of Ipswich Jaffa RC in 2:38:39. To be part of Brighton Marathon Weekend, find out about volunteering at brightonmarathonweekend. co.uk/volunteer. On a practical note, there will be a number of road closures on 14th April from 5.30am. For details, visit www.brightonmarathonweekend. co.uk/travel/road-closures.

Brighton Run2Music is Brighton’s most entertaining running event this year and encourages people of all ages and genders to run together, listening to live DJs and music on big speakers along the course. Participants can dress as their favourite pop star or their musical icon and run 5k, 10k or 21k whilst embracing the spirit of Brighton’s two loves – music and running! Runners will be entertained by a Capital FM DJ, dancers, gymnasts and musicians, and there will be prizes for the best fancy dress. The event is organised by the team who bring you the Brighton and Hove Triathlon. Brighton Run2Music is on Saturday 11 May on Madeira Drive, at around 11am.
