Welcome to The Hanover Directory Contents... 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 (Hanover will have its own snail!), so make the most of the last days of the mild weather. This month the Rotary Club of Brighton tell us all about their organisation and its charitable works, correcting a few misconceptions. Jason of the Sussex Heart Charity has some more great advice on keeping our hearts healthy and Cllr David Gibson keeps us up to date with what’s going on in the area.

hanover A fantastic old photo and memory from a Hanover resident...

Lynton Street Coronation Party

This picture of the Coronation Party in 1953 is the last in a series of photos sent to us by Marion Wilson of Lynton Street. Marion says: “Everybody got together, made cakes and bits, because even then there wasn’t a lot; rationing was still on. I think the party was held just above no. 24 where my grandparents lived. There’s Mrs Walls and her son who was in the Navy (in uniform, at the very top of the party). There’s my mum (pictured below the man with a beret on the right), grandmother (my dad’s mum, next to my mum), and Mrs Clifford of no. 13; Brian, one of the 11 Clifford children, lived in my house. My dad is stood at the top left of the photo.” Please get in contact with any old photos of Hanover you might have that you would like to share.

Look out for a snail in Hanover...

Snailspace arrives...

The Snailspace art installation will be coming to the streets of Brighton & Hove from 15th September until 18th November. 50 giant snails, individually decorated by different artists, and over 50 junior snails painted by local schoolchildren, 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. Superstar DJ Norman Cook, AKA Fatboy Slim, will have his very own snail designed by street artist Cassette Lord. Best-selling crime author Peter James will have a snail based on his highly acclaimed Roy Grace series and popular vlogger and boyfriend of Zoella, Alfie Deyes, will also have a giant snail on the route. A comprehensive map and an interactive app will also support the sculpture hunt. The app will encourage visitors to ‘bag’ as many sculptures as possible by tracking how many snails they have found, enable them to vote for their favourites, and unlock special rewards each time a sculpture is found. The map will be available on the Snailspace website, at Martlets shops across the city and at Churchill Square. There will also be a series of special events during the nine weeks. On Friday 12th October Martlets are

Darren Clarke

organising a Snailway Safari, a sponsored walk with a difference. For one night only the Snailway will become an evening spectacular, with sights, surprises and entertainment along the way. Then, on Oct 19th there will be a citywide #BeMoreSnail day, when Martlets will challenge people to do something which resonates with the idea of being more mindful.

Snails will be placed at some of the locations used for the Snowdogs, including The Level, and a few new locations have been added, including an exciting new location in Hanover! All will be revealed on 15th September. For more information and to keep up to date with all details of the campaign, visit or follow @snailspacebh on social media.

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.

The Waste House

will be open on Friday 14 September from 11am to 1pm and no booking is required.

On Sunday 16 September there’s a chance to visit the Church of the Annunciation in Washington Street, founded by Arthur Wagner in 1864 as a mission to the poor at the height of the Oxford Movement. Brighton-born artist Aubrey Beardsley was a young worshipper at the Annunciation during the 1880s. From 2pm, Alexia Lazou will be in the church for an informal drop-in session looking at his life and work, with some of her Beardsleyana on show. At 4pm Stephen Plaice will give a tour of the church. (Open 10am-5pm with Mass at 11am.) The Waste House in Grand Parade Mews is a “living laboratory” for ecological architectural design – it’s made almost entirely from material thrown away or not wanted. You can book tours on Saturdays 8th and 15th September at (booking closes on 7th September).

There is also an exploration of the Valley Gardens conservation area with Dr Geoffrey Mead on Saturday 15th September (4pm-6pm), with no booking required. Meet at the entrance to Brighton Museum.

This year there is a unique opportunity to view the hidden Feibusch Nativity Mural at 1 St Wilfrid’s Flats, on the corner of Whippingham Road and Elm Grove, which is not normally open to the public. The stunning mural was painted by German Jewish artist Hans Feibusch in 1939. He painted several church murals in Britain in appreciation of the warm reception he received in this country after he fled Nazi Germany where his paintings were destroyed. The mural adorns three walls in what was a side chapel of the former Anglican church which no longer exists and is now sheltered housing. The building is Grade II listed and replaced the original temporary tin church of 1901. The architect of the current building was Harry Stuart Goodhart-Rendel and John Betjeman called it “about the best 1930s church there is”. St Wilfrid’s

A citywide event...

City Plan Part 2 Consultation

Older People’s Festival 2018

Communities across Brighton & Hove now have a further opportunity to comment on the second part of the city’s local development plan. 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.

Impact Initiatives is delighted to be putting together the very successful Older People’s Festival for the third year running, with over 100 events going on over two weeks all over Brighton & Hove, from 24th September to 7th October, celebrating people aged 50+. The festival encourages people to come together and try something new, meet others and participate in city life.

Take part in the consultation online at City Plan Part 2 focuses on good management of development. Its housing policies propose tougher controls on houses of multiple occupation (HMOs) and the Plan ensures well designed, purpose-built student accommodation. 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. Most of the urban fringe will however be protected as green space and there will be four new local green spaces. Community facilities such as public houses and shopping parades are also at the heart of City Plan Part 2. 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.

Music and Wine at St Luke’s

On Friday 14th September we welcome back the Sussex Chamber Ensemble. Musicians Maeve Jenkinson - violin, Sarah Davison – cello, and Rachel Fryer – piano will present Schubert’s monumental Piano Trio no. 1 in B flat, written in the last two years of his tragically short life when he turned to large-scale works, composing some of his greatest music. The second half is Dvorak’s Dumky Trio, a colourful piece suffused with the warmth of folk melody from his native Czechoslovakia. On Friday 28th September Brighton-based Japanese pianist Yoko Ono (yes that’s her real name!) will commemorate the centenary of Debussy’s death, with a complete performance of his Preludes Book 1. She will start the concert with Mozart’s Sonata in E flat major, K. 282, Chopin’s ‘Minute Waltz’, Nocturne in E flat major, Op.9 no.2, Grieg’s Nocturne Op.54 no.4 and ‘Wedding Day at Troldhaugen’ Op.65 No.6. The concerts take place at St Luke’s Church, Queen’s Park Road, Brighton BN2 9ZB, and start at 7.30pm. Tickets £7 / £5 unwaged and low waged / under-16s free. Disabled access.

15 The Royal Weeding? In July we had some help from The Prince’s Trust, a charity that assists 11-30 year olds to get jobs, education and training. A group of young people did some gardening and painted the picnic tables, planters and pots for us as part of a project. They also raised £100 to provide new planters for the centre, so a huge thank you goes out to them, their tutors and Wyevale garden centre for donating some lovely new plants.

This month’s councillor report is from David Gibson, Green Party councillor for Hanover & Elm Grove...

Councillor News – David Gibson Getting to know our neighbours A sunny evening in June saw our ‘Zocalo’, to coincide with the Jo Cox memorial event theme that we have ‘more in common than separates us’. Those of us who took to the streets to meet neighbours had a lovely time. One new arrival to Hanover was delighted to meet 17 new neighbours over the evening! There are calls to make this an annual community event. Count me in! Street and garden gatherings also took place in Pankhurst Avenue and the Phoenix Estate for the first time - let’s expand the Zocalo even further next year! Hanover in Bloom Hanover Action organised the first “Hanover in Bloom” with a guest appearance from our MP Caroline Lucas. Not only were several streets transformed, but flowers sprang up around trees! It showed a lot of pride in our area which it would be great to celebrate by making a Blooming Hanover 2018 poster featuring flower photos. Any offers? ( Council motion calls for 100% affordable housing on general hospital site Along with my colleague Tom Druitt, I proposed that the council calls for 100% affordable housing on the spare land (not needed for the NHS). After all, it is a publicly owned site which should be used for maximum public benefit. Pleasingly, both other parties supported these Green proposals recognising the city’s desperate need for affordable housing. David Gibson

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 Park Ranger. 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 a twohour 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: 01273 292929 A great sporting event coming up...

Our regular article from Hanover Action...

What an amazing summer!

So lovely to wake up to blue skies day after day, swimming in the sea, sitting out in the evenings in summer clothes, everyone friendlier and more relaxed in the sun. But underneath that enjoyment there is the nagging anxiety – is this what climate change looks like? In the papers almost every day there are extreme weather events reported from around the world: heavy rain and flooding in Laos destroying thousands of homes and leaving unknown numbers dead, 85 killed and over 100 injured in forest fires in Greece, record temperatures recorded in diverse parts of the world, wildfires raging across Sweden, yields from farms down 50% and farmers facing bankruptcy. Despite all this being in the news rarely are we given the bigger picture; extreme weather events are reported as isolated incidents despite the fact the climate scientists are saying the extreme weather conditions they predicted are now coming true - the impacts of climate change are no longer subtle, we are seeing

21 21 them playing out in real time. Why aren’t we and the politicians representing us making this the highest priority? The UK government is committed to reducing carbon emissions but in the meantime they go ahead and approve a new runway at Heathrow and the go-ahead of fracking rather than investing in renewables. Climate change is an issue of social justice as well as environmental justice – it puts the disparities between rich and poor into sharp relief. The wealthy turn to their air-conditioned offices, houses and cars while cities around the world heat to dangerous levels; slum dwellers and the homeless are most at risk from extreme heat. People in Bangladesh are made homeless from flooding and in Africa displaced from their farming lands by drought. Experts are predicting that in the next decade climate change will create the world’s biggest ever refugee crisis. This one planet is all we have, we need to make it a priority to find sustainable ways to live with it and with people across the world if humankind is to have a future.

The latest article by Hanover resident Jason Palmer of the Sussex Heart Charity…

Heart Health: In the heat of the day

We look set for a few more weeks of glorious sunshine; no doubt like me over the last couple of months you have spent more time outside than in. Being outside is good for the heart, mind and soul — gardening, cycling, a jog or a short walk around the streets of Hanover. However, heat exhaustion is a real risk and overexposure to the sun can give rise to illness in any of us, even when in good health. Those of us over 50, overweight, or suffering from existing medical conditions and in particular one that affects the heart, are particularly susceptible.

Don’t stop exercising; just recognise the signs of dehydration and sunstroke, which are: headaches, sweaty skin, light-headedness, feeling weak, nausea (in particular vomiting), dark urine (a clear sign of dehydration). • Start Right. Wear lightweight cotton / linen clothing or specialist man made wicking/ breathable fabrics that are quick drying – a light scarf, a hat and/or sunglasses, along with a water/sweat resistant SPF15+ sun cream applied every two hours, will all help - along with comfortable ventilated shoes and socks that repel perspiration. • Drink Right. Keeping hydrated is important; never feel thirsty. The easiest way to do this is to simply drink a small mouthful or cup of water as often as you go to the loo and throughout the day, every hour or so - drinking before, during and after exercise. Don’t drink tea, coffee or alcohol and avoid drinks with high levels of caffeine. • Decide Right. Is it time to take a break? Feeling tired? Thirsty? Find some shade – pop in to M&S or somewhere similar (all the big high street stores have fantastic air conditioning!), stop for a few minutes, drink some water, relax, refresh – run home (well, maybe).

Exercise IS good for you. Just remember to take it easy in hot weather, avoid the outdoors between midday and 3pm, pair up with a friend - in the gym, for a walk around the park or a cycle along the seafront - in the relative safety of the fact that if one of you has a problem, the other can get help. Keep happy and healthy Jason x

A local group who have been raising money for charity for over 100 years...

Rotary Club of Brighton When we recently took a stall at the Rottingdean Village Fair which, this year, commemorated the outbreak of the First World War, we discovered that our club was possibly the only organisation present which would have been in existence at that time. We were founded in 1913 and chartered in 1917 which makes us one of the oldest Rotary Clubs in the UK and we are the oldest of the four Brighton Rotary Clubs, some of which are daughter clubs of ours. Several people asked us about Rotary and some told us what they thought Rotary is. The following is an attempt to correct misconceptions;

25 Rotary is NOT: • a secret society • a branch of Freemasonry • a political or religious organization We do not just collect money for our administration (everything we collect goes out to charities - our subscriptions cover any overheads). WE ARE... Part of a worldwide organisation of over 1.2 million people in 33,000 clubs. Members provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. The Rotary motto is “Service above Self”. What do we do? As a club we organise events for members and friends and the wider community (eg quiz nights, race nights and occasional outings). We have our annual Santa “Round the Houses” which we have done for 40 years which raises revenue to go to charities. We run youth events such as Young Citizen and Youth Speaks. We sponsor students on gap years, give donations to local charities and

to schools and also host students from overseas who are studying here on Rotary Scholarships. In the same way, UK students are hosted by overseas Rotary Clubs when studying abroad. Recently we have raised money for: the Air Ambulance, Chailey Heritage, Patcham High School, St Mark’s School, medical students doing an elective, the Royal Sussex County Hospital (which we have been supporting for 100 years!), schools overseas where we have a local connection, and for disaster relief. So this is the Rotary Club of Brighton, founded by five local businessmen with vision over 100 years ago and serving the community ever since. However, Rotary is not all about good works. Friendship and fellowship are important too. We meet on a Wednesday lunchtime (12.30pm) at the Royal Albion Hotel in Brighton and there is an additional meeting on the first Monday of the month at 6pm in their verandah. We are always happy to welcome new members and if you would like to find out more about us then visit us at the Royal Albion;
