hanover hanover We’re talking to Mark Dalton of lookafteryourdog.co.uk.

New business comes to Brighton If you love dogs read on... Mark, I hear you’re bringing a new business to Brighton that will interest pet owners and particularly dog lovers. Tell us more.

Yes, my brother has been running a successful dog boarding business in the Midlands for some years. Living locally, I know there are so many dog owners around Brighton & Hove who want to lead a more flexible life and need a trusted home for their precious pet while they’re away. Does that mean you will be looking for people to host these dogs in their own homes? Yes, we are keen to hear from people who have a secure home with space, and most importantly, love dogs. What sort of person would fit the bill?

You may be retired or working from home, and you may already have a sociable or good natured dog who would enjoy the company. Pet lovers who’ve had a dog in the past often, in our experience, enjoy the chance to host a dog on a flexible basis. What would potential home boarders need to do? Firstly, get in touch with us and we can answer your questions. Depending on how many dogs you look after, you may need a licence. We are experienced in working with the Councils and will guide all dog boarders through the regulatory process. The website and contact details are below and you are free to call any time with questions


And finally, a bit about you and the team?

Well, my brother Steve is a retired police dog handler, hugely experienced in all dog management. Me and my partner Suzy live in Brighton and are dedicating ourselves to building up the business in Sussex. We also plan to add dog walking and home visits for cat feeding in the future. Thanks and good luck with the venture. www.lookafteryourdog.co.uk Steve: 07814 245595 or Steve@lookafteryourdog.co.uk Mark: 07985 087771 or

hanover Some advice from local pharmacist Ravi Patel on staying healthy in the cold weather…

Staying well this Winter!

Have you had your flu jab this year? If you’re in a high-risk category, eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine and haven’t yet had yours yet, there’s still time! If you get complications caused by flu, it can make you seriously ill and have to go to hospital. Please make an appointment with your GP or pop in anytime to a local pharmacy. For those of you who may have asthma, please ensure you have your ‘reliever inhaler’ to hand. The cold air is a known trigger for wheezing and shortness of breath. If you have to go out, holding a handkerchief or a loosely fitted scarf over the nose and mouth may help.

Those with arthritis and joint pain may feel it’s worse during the winter months. Light exercising not only helps increase core temperature but can improve your state of mind. We tend to have lower moods in winter, especially after the festive period is over, so this is quite important to consider. Moderate-paced walking or swimming are quite good options. If you do feel low, please speak to someone – often talking about things can really help. Finally, with us now in 2020 have you made a New Year’s resolution to be healthier? With January being

the busiest month for new gym memberships, even small changes can lead to a healthier you! Walking instead of driving, upping the pace if you already do so, cutting down on fatty and sugary foods, increasing fruit and vegetables in your diet (diabetics be mindful that excessive fruits can increase blood sugar) can all help improve cardiac health and general fitness levels. If you wish to get advice on stopping smoking, please discuss this with your GP or pharmacist. We know the huge benefits for people stopping smoking, so if you’re ready to give up, please don’t delay – it really could save your life. If you would like to discuss anything mentioned in the above article, please feel free to pop in and see us. Ravi Patel MRPharmS Pharmacist

hanover hanover An update on the council’s policy on the use of glyphosate...

Council to continue with manual weeding Brighton & Hove City Council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee agreed at its meeting on 26th November to end the use of glyphosate by its Environmental Management services with immediate effect, other than in exceptional cases to kill invasive plant species such as Japanese knotweed or to kill tree stumps. Glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup, is the world’s most widely sold weed killer, but many experts believe it causes cancer in humans while destroying the environment and wildlife. The removal of weeds in parks and on hard surfaces will instead be undertaken manually and the committee will review this approach in autumn 2020. Cityclean have responsibility for removing weeds on hard surfaces. They have explored different options but the only effective and affordable method was manual removal. This will involve employing an additional six staff for six months during the growing season which will cost £70,000 a year, which is £33,000 more than it would cost with the use of glyphosate.

Course at The Hanover Community Centre starting January 18th - February 29th, Saturday 10 am

A report to the council said that ending the use of pesticides on hard surfaces would be likely to mean that there will be more visible weeds for longer periods of time. However, weeds contribute to biodiversity by providing a habitat and source of food for insects. Cllr Pete West said that the Green Party had been calling for this policy for a number of years. However, he thought it was important that pavements remained weed-free to avoid trip hazards, so it was sensible to keep the new technique under review. Rachel Chasseaud of City Environmental Management reported that the council had only carried out about six weeks of manual weed removal in 2019 as a test and in the winter the weeds would start to die off naturally. In 2020 the weed removal will be much better planned, using information from this year. Conservative councillor Lee Wares was concerned about the maintenance of the pavements and the number of weeds growing in the gutter, which are tearing up the road surface outside his house. He said the new policy could create an exponential risk in the cost of maintaining the pavements and roads. However, Labour councillor Theresa Fowler commented: “I am really pleased that we’ve all agreed to reduce pesticides. I’ve heard of complaints from people that have been worried because their dogs have been poisoned from sniffing the weeds that have been sprayed and I’ve actually enjoyed walking up my road now, looking at all the weeds and the flowers that pop up from nowhere.”

hanover A two-day showcase at the Brighton Waldorf School in Roedean Road...

Brighton Waldorf School Showcase

Helping to create and nurture inspiring futures is the message from the Brighton Waldorf School as it opens its doors to prospective parents and pupils at its inaugural two-day Showcase of Pupil Performance and Academic Achievements on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th January between 1pm and 4pm. Following the success of this year’s great GCSE results and recognition for the positive Ofsted improvements, the school is hosting the interactive Showcase to give pupils and staff a platform to demonstrate, exhibit and celebrate the strong improvements, new classes, initiatives and creative channels that have grown and excelled over the last year. School Director Damian Mooncie said: “The Showcase will be a mix of original pupil performances of poems, songs and drama, plus Curriculum Exhibitions alongside bookable ‘live’ Classroom Tours. We believe the event will be the perfect way for the school - its teachers and pupils - to share their Waldorf education experiences and give visitors an opportunity to see the flow of intellectual and creative stimulation and enrichment within our school and its curriculum.”

The council have been great in supporting the very successful Brighton BikeShare and in the provision of cycle lanes. In Hanover additional cycle parking and access to one-way streets for cyclists as part of the CPZ is very welcome. But further support is needed in the form of covered cycle storage.

The terraced housing in Hanover does not allow easy access to back gardens to store cycles; in family housing and multi-occupied property, storing bikes securely indoors is difficult without taking up valuable living space. People do not feel happy leaving expensive bikes locked to hoops outside, vulnerable to weather and theft. There is therefore a need for secure, weatherproof external cycle storage. All of the current secure parking (for example the store on Cobden Road) is very heavily

vered cycle storage in Hanover?

akes perfect sense in a city where many residents do not have cars, getting around by car is air quality and environmental issues. Electric bikes are really taking off and are ideal for our hilly more inclusive. oversubscribed – one resident only achieving a space after nine years on the waiting list! Hanover Action and local councillors have raised this with the council a number of times and recently met with council officers to see how this could work. A couple of years ago Hanover Action carried out an online survey via their website which asked residents whether they would like covered cycle storage in their street and whether they would be prepared to pay for it. This had 73 respondents across Hanover and 85% of those who replied supported the idea of covered storage. Local councillors are constantly being approached by local residents asking whether storage is planned and how they can access it. The model we have in mind is the ‘Bikehangar’ store produced by cycle storage company Cyclehoop:

https://www.cyclehoop.com/. This is widely used in London and other major cities. A pilot unit in Shaftesbury Road has been successfully tested in Brighton.

The Bikehangar takes up the space and width of less than a car parking space and can store six bikes. We do not suggest that any designated parking spaces are lost but that Bikehangars are installed either on wide areas of pavement, or to take up part of the cycle parking already allocated.

We are hoping to have plans for at least a pilot bike hangar in the New Year and eventually it would be great to see one on every street! Please email contactHASL@gmail.com with your views.

A writing competition for children and young people…

“If I don’t speak, who will?” Alfred Huberman Holocaust Memorial Day, 27th January 2020, marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Brighton & Hove resident for 65 years and Holocaust survivor Alfred Huberman dedicated his life to bearing witness to the Holocaust in the hope that his own harrowing story would help future generations learn from the lessons of the past, and to show how genocide is a process which starts with hatred, prejudice and discrimination. Hailing from a close-knit Polish-Jewish family of over 50 members, only Alfred and one sister survived the concentration camps. One of the child Holocaust survivors brought to Britain at the end of the war, by 1946 he was living in Hove. He worked as a master tailor in Brighton, married a local girl and had three children. Alfred died in 2011, but his legacy is The

Alfred Huberman Award to encourage young people to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and to ensure that its horrors should never be forgotten. The writing can take the form of a short essay, letter, poem or creative writing (max 500 words). Entries should demonstrate understanding of the Holocaust; how the story impacts on them; and the hopes they have for the future. There are two categories: primary school children aged 8-11 years & secondary school children aged 11-18 years. Prizes are awarded for the most striking pieces of writing. Closing date 30 June 2020. Entries accepted from schools and individuals. Further information: http://alfredhuberman. com/ or email info@ldhp.org.uk A few ideas for being more eco-friendly...

Planet-Friendly Tips Here are a few more environmentallyfriendly tips – from Nettie Heron-Middleton and from Friends of the Earth (see more at friendsoftheearth.uk).

We’d love to hear your own tips - please email us at info@hanoverdirectory.co.uk. Washing clothes? If they’re not really dirty, wash them at 30, not 40, degrees. Cook double the amount of vegetables etc you need and save half for the next day. Wash your dishes in a dishwasher (fully loaded) – it can use less water than washing by hand. Let part (or all) of your garden grow wild to help pollinating insects thrive. Eat less meat – meat and dairy production is responsible for 14.5% of climate-changing gases (more than all forms of transport).

Brighton & Hove City Libraries Music Club... supporting local bands It’s just a year since the Music Club started and it’s been really great with so many people coming to our 12 talks on music and one film showing. They’ve ranged from Syrian refugee musicians to Turkish psych, underground New York disco and Pink Floyd’s 1972 debut of Dark Side of the Moon, and have included live West African musicians and traditional English folk music.

Our new exciting plan for 2020 is representing and supporting Brighton bands and labels. We’ve received 50 CDs and the more old-school tape cassettes from local bands and labels. We’re putting these in Brighton Jubilee Library so they can be borrowed. There is a fantastic range of labels including Third Kind, Eyeless and Willkommen, and styles from folk and krautrock to rap and reggae which are as diverse as Brighton itself. Myself and Ian Trice, who run the Music Club, are really grateful to the Brighton music folk for their generosity and in return hope to showcase their amazing talent.

posters. If you’re really excited about this great music, we do cheap subscription cards so borrow away! Francis Field

It’s also been great to see the community spirit of so many people wanting to help their library. Ewan from Rarekind Records not only did an excellent talk for us on running a record store but also helps us to get our posters up around town. One of the last of our popular music talks was with Dave and Graham from Mr Bongo Records, a very enlightening and humorous event, especially Dave’s story of visiting Colombia to find rare records and staying in a hotel with room for your key and your gun. Luckily for him and Mr Bongo a friend got him out of there very quickly! They have been incredibly generous and given us 150 albums of rare funk, reggae, afro-funk, psychedelia and music that have bits of all of them to modern artists such as The Skints, Prince Fatty and Hollie Cook. The Mr Bongo collection launch date was Saturday 12th December and in February we’ll be setting out the CDs and tapes of Brighton bands and other labels. Please come to the library and check out some of this amazing music.

We’re hoping to have a live event in Jubilee Library featuring local bands. Both Mr Bongo and Rarekind have very kindly said they’d spin some records and we’ll let you know via our library Facebook and See this logo on adverts and find local reviews of that business at www.trustedandlocal.co.uk

Al-Anon provide support for anyone affected by someone else’s drinking…

Al-Anon Family Groups Al-Anon Family Groups provide support to anyone whose life is, or has been, affected by someone else’s drinking, regardless of whether that person is still drinking or not, with currently over 700 meetings around the UK and Ireland and over 24,000 meetings worldwide. Lisa, 49, shares her story: “I met my husband when I was 20 years old. There was an instant attraction and within a month of meeting we were living together and inseparable. I knew he liked to have a drink, but I had no idea what an alcoholic was.

“On our wedding day, he was hung-over even though I had pleaded with him not to drink the night before. I worried every time he wasn’t home when he was supposed to be – “Is he dead?” I would ask myself. It got worse when I got pregnant; when our first child was born, he disappeared for almost four days. After our second child was born things got even worse; he was hardly ever home.

“When the children cried for his attention, he would put on earphones and turn the volume up. It was so awful that I began to realise I was happier when he wasn’t there, so finally I asked him to leave and he did!

“With the help of Al-Anon meetings I am improving. I have begun detaching from responsibilities that are not mine. For almost 30 years I have carried the responsibility that it was my fault the children were not raised by a decent father. My children ended up having a good life, and that was thanks to me. It’s hard to feel comfortable with that, but it is necessary for me to let go of blame, both of him, and of myself.” There are meetings at several venues in Brighton including the Friends’ Meeting House, the Brighthelm Centre, Cascade Coffee Shop in Baker Street and the Salvation Army hall in Park Crescent Terrace, near The Level. You can find your nearest meeting at www.al-anonuk.org.uk/ find-a-meeting/ or call our free and confidential helpline on 0800 0086 811 (10am-10pm).
