hanover hanover An interview with one of the two new councillors in Hanover...

Meet Councillor Elaine Hills

Elaine was elected in May as a Green Party councillor for Hanover & Elm Grove. How long have you lived in the Hanover area?

I’ve lived here for 10 years and I lived in central Brighton for 10 years before that. Food brought me to Hanover! I was working in London so I didn’t have much time to cook, so I started buying ready-made vegan meals from a woman in Hanover Street. I explored the area more and decided Hanover would be a great place to live as it’s close to town and I loved its environmentally conscious vibe. What’s your background?

I’m from South Shields, which is between Newcastle and Sunderland. I went to university in Birmingham to study communications and politics. After that, I travelled, ending up in Melbourne, Australia, where I got involved in community TV. I then moved to London and worked in writing and editing jobs, as well as in a music press office promoting bands. I formed a band myself – an all girl band. We got a bit of press

soapbox soapbox apbox soapbox

and made a record but it fizzled out and I came to Brighton. I worked as a production journalist in London and commuted, but then retrained as an FE teacher and I got a job in 2005 at what is now the MET. Around this time, I also became a freelance video journalist for ITV Local, which gave me my first taste of the local political scene.

hanover hanover A major new free eco-festival...

CleverGreen Festival on The Level

Sustainable lifestyle and green business CleverGreen Group is launching the CleverGreen Festival at The Level on Saturday 20 July. Over three million people attend UK festivals each year and between them generate a staggering 23,500 tonnes of waste – equating to 2.8kg of waste per person, per day. Research suggests that, of that amount, only 32% is recycled, with the other 68% heading for landfill sites – and so CleverGreen is a festival with a difference.

The free-to-attend event aims to be as close to zerowaste as possible with: •

No single-use plastic on site.

Power provided by options such as vegetable oil, solar panels and bike-powered generators.

An extensive waste management plan.

commitment to educate others with A workshops, talks and demonstrations.

The packed line-up brings together a market full of ethical brands, sustainability talks, workshops, a dedicated kids area, live music and sustainably sourced food and drinks – creating an essential space for festival-goers to discover the importance of sustainability and eco-living.

The main stage and acoustic tent will be lined up with the best homegrown musicians that Brighton has to offer, which includes TenderHooks, Snipit And The Hotrocks, The Big Sky, Lucy Wylde, Across The Sea and many more. For adults, the festival will have a CleverGreen Wellbeing area where various classes, including meditation and yoga, will take place. With the clothes-swapping trend taking off across the country,

Tim the Gardener

The festival will also feature a range of activities for children of all ages, from spin art to junk modelling and felt classes.

Whether you’re looking to stock up on grocery staples or try something completely new, there are plenty of opportunities to discover a selection of wonderful eco-essentials, and sustainable, zero-waste food and drink at the event. Festival director Jo Child says: “Not only is it a fun day out for friends and family but it’s a great opportunity to find out more about all things eco-living and the benefits it has to offer you, your family, animals and the planet. Gates open on Saturday 20th at 11am – and we can’t wait to welcome you!” For more information, please visit www.clevergreengroup.com.

hanover hanover An annual summer event in William Clarke Park...

Patchfest 2019...Saturday 13th July, Noon to 9pm

Celebrating the 150 years since the opening of the Kemp Town Branch Line. The Friends of William Clarke Park community group will be hosting the annual summer festy for the Hanover and Lewes Road areas - Patchfest 2019 - on Saturday 13th July from noon to 9pm. This amazing effort from local volunteers will showcase loads of local musical talent on two stages, a market-place, food stalls, bar, football tournament and kids area. Organiser Duncan Blinkhorn said, “Patchfest is an expression of a love for living it local. A great day out, on your doorstep, for catching up with friends, family and neighbours, and enjoying some great entertainment.”

He added, “This year is a bit special because we’re celebrating 150 years since the opening of the Kemp Town branch railway line in 1869. The line ran until 1971 when it was taken up and the cutting between Hartington Road and Elm Grove filled in to create what is now ‘The Patch’. At Patchfest we’ll mark that bit of history with a new mural featuring the old steam trains that ran on the line and an exhibition of photos

The BCCC is an award winning business based just on the edge of the City We make our own High Quality garden and horticultural products including Organic Compost, high grade Top Soil, Mulches, Bark Chip and Woodchip

Local Business...WiggleBums Brighton Gina Morelli lives in Islingword Street. She runs WiggleBums Brighton - yoga classes in Hanover and Kemptown for pre-schoolers and 5-8 year-olds & their grown-ups. How long have you lived in Hanover? I’m a local. I actually grew up near Queens Park, and eventually I came to Hanover with an intention of staying a year or two – that was 12 years ago and now I’m a vegan yoga teacher, so where else could I live! When did you first start practising yoga? I started doing classes in a sweaty gym in 2003; like lots of people I was drawn to the idea of toning and flexibility. Over time I’ve come to experience the deeper benefits of yoga for mental and physical wellbeing. What are the benefits of yoga for young children? Yoga helps with sleep and managing big feelings; so many families suffer when their child is struggling with sleep, worry, tempers or over-excitement, and so doing yoga with children benefits the whole

family. It’s also great for developing body awareness, strength and confidence, and building empathy and social skills. Tell us about your classes... They are so much fun, I just love them! We have full parent participation, so the classes are as much about the grown-ups as they are about the children. We sing an om song to start and end, which sometimes brings about fits of giggles, and other times stillness settles over the room, and so this sets the tone of the class! We move through a yoga flow and story which helps the little ones remember the poses, and then we use play, music and breathe to practise presence. We always end with rest and snuggle time which is, after all, the most important part! The most magical moments happen when you think the really little ones are away in their own world, and then they pull out a perfect tree pose! What do you like to do when you’re not teaching? I love being outdoors and active, in fact I need it! So aside from WiggleBums and WiggleKids, I have a garden maintenance business, and I make time every day for a run or a walk with my lovely scruffy dog (AKA my BFF!).

What do you like to do when you’re not working? Right now, sleeping comes to mind! It’s a tough job to live with for my family (thanks guys!) so I like hanging out with my kids, barbecuing with friends in the patch and binge watching too many episodes of Homeland with my wife, Imogen. And cooking! For more information, visit www.sightsavers.org

How do you feel about being awarded an OBE? It is an amazing recognition of the work we do. I’m currently in New York, meeting at the United Nations with individuals and organisations working in disability rights from around the world. There are so many people celebrating this OBE because it’s for them. The external acknowledgement that this is an important area in international development work means a great deal to all of us.

hanover Your monthly update from the Hanover Community Association...

Hanover Community

Hanover Centre on Southover Street. The charity is run your feedback and suggestions, so please get in touch compliments or complaints. New Garden Group at the Hanover Centre Last month we mentioned that a new garden group is forming, under the guidance of Hanoverian Ross. Ross is keen to see the garden flourish and hopes to introduce the concept of permaculture. Now if you thought permaculture was something involving 1980s hairdos, then read on… “Permaculture is defined as consciously designed landscapes which mimic the patterns and relationships found in nature, while yielding an abundance of food, fibre and energy for the provision of local needs” — David Holmgren

“Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labour; and of looking at plants and animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system.” — Bill Mollison

As Ross explains, ‘The garden is already very well established and would be a perfect platform to demonstrate permaculture principles that work with nature. This would focus mainly on perennial plants that are low maintenance as well as plants and trees to encourage birds and insects.’ He suggests we make the garden more appealing to visitors by adding interesting plants, flowers and food crops, making use of some of the older and more neglected raised beds/planting areas. These could include scented plants, edible flowers and even hops growing along the back wall!

hanover An event on 19th July to get busy people more active...

Run 5.30 – Brighton’s earliest morning run... On Friday 19 July the alarms of hundreds of people will buzz earlier than usual to get to New Road for some early morning exercise whilst the city is still asleep.

Run 5.30 is a 5k event that starts from the city centre at 5.30am on a business day, to promote the positive effects of daily physical activity and healthy eating. The unconventional format shows participants they can fit exercise into their busy lives by waking up just a bit earlier. Over 500 people have signed up for this year’s Brighton event. Last year, 450 people took part in Run 5.30 Brighton, including newly elected Brighton & Hove Mayor Alex Phillips who waved the start at 5.30 am, before joining the participants along the route for a jog. Sabrina Severi, Italian co-founder says: “We are passionate about promoting a positive lifestyle which can be achieved with a little movement every day and by paying attention to what we eat.”

Run 5.30 Brighton is the only event outside Italy. As well as promoting physical exercise the event pays particular attention to nutrition. Participants will enjoy a locally-sourced delicious and healthy breakfast made of cherries and organic yogurt. Participants will enjoy an exclusive closed road, city centre course, starting from New Road, weaving through the Lanes, then down to the seafront and back through the Royal Pavilion Gardens. Run 5.30 will donate part of the entry fee to children’s charity Rockinghorse. Everyone interested in walking or running the event can register online at www.run530.com.

Over the last year, Hanover Action have joined with others to push for recognition of the climate crisis and campaign for more urgent action, and the fruits of this are starting to take shape, with our council declaring a “recognition of global climate and biodiversity emergencies” and broadly adopting the target of a carbon neutral city by 2030.

With the local election having the potential to turn these aspirations into firm policy commitment, we circulated a questionnaire on the climate emergency to all those standing across the city. We received replies from the Labour Party, Green Party and Liberal Democrats as well as individual candidates. Thank you to all who took part - for the full report see www. hasl.org.uk. Here are some of the highlights: With the council recently passing a motion to recognise the climate emergency, it was reassuring that

See reviews by local people of this business at See this logo on adverts and find local reviews of that business at www.trustedandlocal.co.uk

2323 all candidates supported this. As Bev Barstow (Women’s Equality Party candidate) put it, “I absolutely support the declaration of climate and biodiversity emergency. It is a top priority and would be best addressed collaboratively, across party lines, to ensure it’s taken seriously.” Like Bev, most candidates put it to the top of their list of priorities. In terms of how to approach it, we had suggested they produce a costed action plan within six months of being elected; however this was seen all round as too short a timeline. The consensus was that within nine months we would see firm plans aimed at achieving a carbon neutral city, with the 2030 target a shared aim.

Other points of agreement included banning of pesticides on council land – we look forward to swift action on this - and greater use of solar panels on council buildings. There was also strong support for community engagement, with the Green candidates particularly calling for ‘bottom-up’ engagement and a Citizens’ Assembly, which is a technique that both Hanover Action and Extinction Rebellion have supported exploring locally. As (now Hanover & Elm Grove Green councillor) Elaine Hills put it, “Extinction Rebellion have done a great job in engaging people. We need to build on that energy and translate it into some achievable action.”

Although there were differences in tone, and some aspects of policy, the strong showing for candidates and parties supportive of climate action is a positive for the city, and we look forward to working with our new councillors and council as critical friends as well as demanding campaigners. As successful Queen’s Park Labour candidate Amanda Evans put it, “It is an absolute emergency, and I would want to engage with all the campaign groups in this area.” We look forward with hope.

Great activities for the summer...

School Holiday Adventures...

Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) - one of the fastest growing water sports in the world - is taking the UK by storm with a number of active and enthusiastic SUP communities springing up across the South East. Calum, co-director at Bike SUP Brighton (an adventure sports company based in Brighton) outlines why mountain biking and SUP combine to make the perfect adventure experience:

“SUP has similarities to other water sports like surfing or kayaking, but it is much more accessible than either. Beginners can achieve a basic level of competence relatively quickly and it is suitable for a wide variety of ages. It’s incredibly relaxing once you get the hang of it! Mountain biking offers more of a thrill, as you get that rush of adrenaline by exploring and navigating flowing trails. Both activities give people the opportunity to invest in both their physical and mental wellbeing.” If you have tried SUPing you’ll appreciate the physical benefits - although it looks quite sedate you’ll still probably discover muscles you never knew you had! As a BSUPA instructor, Calum adds that “once you have got to grips with the basic paddle technique, SUPing can be a fantastic way to unwind, engage your core and escape the urban jungle.”

Visitors to Sussex beaches may have seen SUPs out in the waves, but there is an abundance of inland SUP venues in Sussex too, including rivers such as the Arun, Ouse and Adur, with many routes providing a chance to escape and enjoy unspoilt beauty and an abundance of wildlife. First-timers will appreciate the accessibility, safety and views of the meanders at Cuckmere Haven, whereas more experienced paddlers can enjoy the fast-flowing fun of the rivers Adur and Arun. Mountain bikers are also spoilt for choice

in the Sussex area, with great riding to be had at Friston and Bedgebury forest, not to mention the abundance of secret singletrack spots for more experienced riders.

With the numbers of SUPs set to increase again this summer, Calum notes that new paddlers should have a good understanding of the potential hazards, including wind and tides, and should consider doing a ‘ready to ride’ course with a BSUPA-recognised school. Bike SUP Brighton offer Paddle Board and Bike Adventure Days over the school holidays for 1215 year olds as well as Paddle Board lessons for all ages and adventure days for groups.

A volunteer from Hanover at local charity Time to Talk Befriending tells us about her experience...

Befriending Charlotte...

“Before I met you I didn’t use to care if I lived or died. Now I want to live forever!” (Charlotte, Time to Talk Befriending Scheme member aged 89 years) Whenever I’m asked what it’s like to be part of Time to Talk Befriending, I always want to get across that it is hugely rewarding to be “part of the solution to loneliness and making an impact on someone’s life”. However, personally I don’t feel like I’m giving up anything to spend time with Charlotte, who I have been visiting for three years now, or that it’s even a charitable thing! The duality of the benefits to the be-friendship is just as important in my life as it is for Charlotte. There is something underrated about simply making time to sit and have a face to face chat - no technology, no mutual gossip but a connection stripped back to basics of wanting to have a real and quality connection with another human being. I have a hunch that if we dug into why people volunteer for this scheme it would show that we (volun-

teers) are looking for company in just as much the same way as the members are. Whilst it’s not necessarily loneliness in the conventional sense that is driving us to volunteer, with the increase of isolation in society - especially in the millennial generation (because of social media quite frankly) - I think the work Time to Talk Befriending do and their befriending model will become increasingly important in society in recognising the value of connection. I can’t recommend befriending enough so if you have an hour to give once a week or once a fortnight please contact the team on 01273 737710 / volunteers@tttb.org.uk / www.tttb.org.uk/volunteers/ for further details.
