Waterloo Place

Waterloo Place, as it looked in 1946. It was built from 1818-1820 and named after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.

Charles Augustus Busby, architect of Brunswick Square and Terrace, lived in No 11, the third house from the left, from 1822 until 1830. Most of the terrace of 14 houses (except numbers 1 and 2) was demolished in the 1960s/70s. It was replaced by offices and is now Phoenix Brighton. Thanks to the Regency Society for this image from their photographic archives, The James Gray Collection.

hanover A great celebration of dance…

A local event...

Our City Dances

Get your groove on for Our City Dances – a weekend of free familyfriendly dance shows, workshops and events. Whether you’re up for getting stuck in or watching from the sidelines, Brightonbased charity South East Dance’s second annual free celebration of all things dance is a great opportunity to get out and see and do something different in your neighbourhood this month.

Hitting streets and community spaces in central Brighton during the weekend of 29-30 June, Our City Dances is a free family-friendly celebration of dance designed to boost Brighton & Hove’s appetite for dance in the run-up to the launch of new community dance venue The Dance Space in 2020.

Day One on Saturday 29 June, presented in partnership with the Tarner Festival, is packed with opportunities to ‘have a go’ at dance, with more than 15 workshops and events for the whole family to take part in, from Hula Hooping and Capoeira to a Charleston-inspired Ceilidh.

On Sunday 30 June, you’re invited to watch and take part in dance around the city centre. Without Touch by BitterSuite is a guided sensory journey at Brighton Youth Centre - close your eyes and experience music and movement through touch, taste and smell.

Tarner Festival

This year’s Tarner Festival takes place in Tarner Park on Saturday 29th June from 2pm to 7pm.

This is the fifth year of the festival, which is in collaboration with two local charities, South East Dance and Audio Active. Audio Active will be curating a live music stage and South East Dance will host dance performances and workshops. There will also be live mural painting, mobile skate ramps, an exotic animal display, arts and crafts, a raffle, children’s games and activities, local traders and stalls, a bouncy castle, capoeira, a barbecue, Indian street food, a bar and more to be announced. For more information contact shelley@tarner.org.uk.

Head to Jubilee Square at 1.15pm or 5pm to enter a world created by parkour company Urban Playground in which humans must choose between security and movement.

All performances and events are free, accessible and many are BSL interpreted – check out the full line-up at southeastdance.org.uk.

Hanover resident Francis Field tells us about the music talks at the Jubilee Library...

Brighton Library Music Club 2019 Talks... We’ve just finished a successful six-month run of our new Music Club talks at Brighton library (Jubilee Street). Ending on a high with Dan from Resident Records’ excellent talk on 70s and 80s festival bands, we were chuffed to have Captain Sensible and Monty from The Damned among the audience. It’s been great to see the popularity of the talks building and we now have a strong group of regular members, which is very much appreciated. The club is run by myself and Ian Trice and we do try and book a varied line-up of talks. By the time you read this we’ll be on our third talk of the season and it’s going to be very interesting. We’ve got three Brighton punk legends - Bob from The Piranhas, Del from Peter and the Test Tube Babies and Tim from Fish Brothers to talk about their memories of a fantastic musical and cultural time (21 st June). After this we’re going a bit back in time to hear about Turkish psychedelia with Wire

(2nd August) Graham and David from Mr Bongo visit us next (27 th September) to talk about the amazing 30year journey tracking down rare and wonderful records from around the world for their label. If it’s rare and it’s funky they have it! Ebou Touray who puts on the excellent African Night Fever events will be talking about West African music in the 21 st century; if you’re a funk fan like me, you’ll especially like the bits about Fela Kuti and the Nigerian 70s funk scene (4 th October). We’re finishing off this season with a talk from our library’s own musical legend Chris Collis, drummer in excellent math rock band This Town Needs Guns. Starting out on the Oxford music scene, home of Radiohead and Supergrass among others, he tours the world with his band and will have some great stories to tell (1 st November). The talks start at 4pm, they’re free and in the library community space on the ground floor; we update our Facebook site - Brighton & Hove City Libraries with information on the talks.

News from Martlets hospice...

Martlets launches ‘Cuddle Up’ campaign Martlets is launching a ‘Cuddle Up’ campaign to raise £25,000 supported by designer Sarah Moore, from the BBC’s ‘Money for Nothing’ upcycling show. The appeal is aiming to raise funds to help make patient rooms feel more like home for them and their families during their time at the hospice. It is often the little things that can make a big difference and, after listening to patient feedback, the team at Martlets realised that making changes to the hospice rooms would enable patients to enjoy some real home comforts in the precious time they have left. These changes could include having a sofa or a chair big enough for loved ones to cuddle up on, a homely colour-scheme or even fun-themed children’s bedding for when youngsters are staying with their mum or dad. Designer Sarah Moore lives in Sussex and has a very personal connection with Martlets. Her close friend Emma, a popular designer who worked with her on ‘Money for Nothing’, was a patient at the hospice. Viewers of the show have been fundraising for Martlets in her memory. Sarah said, “Martlets delivered amazing care for Emma when she was really poorly. I’m so happy to support the Cuddle Up Appeal; small design changes can have a big impact on wellbeing and quality of life, and it’s important to balance great design with the practicalities of care.” Ruth Tierney, Martlets’ Ward Manager, said, “Time is such a precious thing, time to love and be loved, time to say all the things that need to

Help keep our city’s trees!

Plant Your Postcode...

Look around. We’re lucky, there are trees everywhere – but now your help is needed to keep our city leafy. You may have noticed that many of our city’s beautiful trees are getting old and succumbing to disease. Add to this the challenge that our council faces in the battle to add or even replace trees in this time of austerity, and it becomes clear that residents’ help is needed. Our trees: Brighton & Hove’s trees are particularly special because we hold the National Elm Collection. Now the city is home to some of the rarest varieties of elms in the world. It’s important that the number of elms we have is at least maintained. A vast number of trees were planted in Victorian times when the city rapidly expanded. Now those trees are reaching the end of their lives, so action is needed to replace them. How to take action

Create a group in your area: It could be that a few trees in your street have been lost over time and you’d like to see them re-planted. Or you’d like trees where there were none before. You can help to make that happen. A local group of, say, one or more

streets can decide to have new trees. Brighton & Hove City Council will arrange for the site to be checked. If it’s suitable, the group can club together to raise funds. The council can then order the trees and plant them. Trees are ordered in September for planting the following year. Become a Tree Champion: You can help identify trees in your area which look sickly or you could take on a research project. Get your local school involved: It’s important that the coming generation are aware of our city’s tree legacy. Help fund trees across the city: Make a difference with a single donation or a regular donation by standing order.

Where it’s already worked: A Hove resident who has benefitted from new tree planting, funded by residents, says: ‘A new tree outside our house, to replace one long dead! Soon home to birds and insects. A pleasure to look at. We love it!’

Bloomin’ Hanover and Zocalo It’s great to see so many more plants on the streets of Hanover and the improvements to street planters.

Hanover Action are promoting Bloomin’ Hanover again this year to coincide with The Zocalo. Turn off your telly for the night, put a table and chairs on the pavement and have a drink and snack with your neighbours! This will take place across Hanover on Friday 21st June from 6.00ish till dark. A community choir will be adding to the atmosphere and lots of flowering planters, window boxes and hanging baskets will please the bees and other insects as well as the whole community.

This year, we are supporting the Royal Horticultural Society’s “Plants for Pollinators” campaign with a plant sale in May and plans to fill gaps in street plants with plants attractive to bees, hoverflies and other pollinating insects.

2323 Pollinators are under threat due to loss of habitat, the widespread use of pesticides, and climate change, yet they are crucial to maintaining life on the planet. Most plants need them to reproduce; 84% of EU crops and 80% of wildflowers rely on insect pollination. Buglife’s (buglife.org.uk) ‘Get Britain Buzzing’ campaign gives more details of the problems facing pollinators and the damage that has already been done; half of our 27 bumblebee species are in decline; three of these bumblebee species have already gone extinct; seven bumblebee species have declined by more than 50% in the last 25 years; two-thirds of our moths and 71% of our butterflies are in long-term decline. So, it’s more important than ever to do everything we can to plant new habitats for pollinators even in the small back yards and street planters of Hanover. Wildflower plants which are often thought of as weeds, such as knapweed, ox-eye daisy and viper’s bugloss, are good for pollinators and also make attractive garden plants. The Royal Horticultural Society’s website has a comprehensive list of garden plants and wildflowers for pollinators: (https://www.rhs.org. uk/science/conservation-biodiversity/wildlife/plantsfor-pollinators)

If you’d like to do more why not join Buglife and support their plan to end the decline in pollinator species:

• All pollinators valued for the service they provide • Our pollinator populations properly monitored and understood • Pesticide use that harms pollinators reduced • Wildflower-rich landscapes restored • Declines in rare and threatened pollinator species reversed • Places for pollinators planned around people • Wild pollinators protected from imported parasites and diseases.

This article is from the Royal Voluntary Service...

Royal Voluntary Service...

At Royal Voluntary Service (previously known as WRVS) our volunteers have been playing their part in hospitals since the NHS began in 1948. Today, they still give over a million hours of voluntary service each year. Locally, at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, our volunteers generously give their time to support the six coffee shops across the site; new volunteers are always welcome and much appreciated. Our cafés offer visitors and busy staff a welcome hot drink, sandwiches and healthy snacks.

The Big Trolley Push was launched in Brighton earlier this year and volunteers, staff and visitors to the hospital are benefiting from the ward trolley service. It’s often the little things that can brighten a patient’s day; a daily paper, a light snack and a friendly face can make a big difference. After only a few hours, or maybe just ten minutes, volunteers appreciate just how great it feels to make others smile! As a trolley volunteer you’ll be amazed by the effect one conversation,

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 We also provide Brighton & Hove residents with a reasonably priced and efficient Garden Waste and old soil collection and clearance service

one laugh from someone who spends their days alone, or a heartfelt ‘thank you’ can have.

Royal Voluntary Service is all about bringing communities closer together, whichever side of the trolley you’re on! There’s nothing lonely about our volunteering roles! You could end up building lasting friendships with both the patients and the other volunteers, enriching your life as much as your company enriches theirs. A recent member of our trolley team Linda Sheldrake from Saltdean is enjoying her experience with us. So much so that she has recommended a friend to join us too. “I love the interaction with the staff and patients and feel I am enhancing their day.”

Royal Voluntary Service is one of the largest volunteering organisations in the country. Throughout our history we have been inspired by people’s generosity, by those who give the gift of time through voluntary service, doing small deeds for a greater purpose. Today, we are continuing this work in order to support vulnerable people at home in their communities and relieving the pressure from NHS services, offering a friendly face in times of need.

If you would like to give a few hours of your week to your local hospital please contact us for a chat and find out what we have to offer. Please call us on 01273 664976 (9.30 - 4.00) or visit www.royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk
