HOVE PARK Meet a local chiropractor…

LOCAL PERSON... MORTEN WESTERGAARD Morten Westergaard is the principal chiropractor at Best Practice Chiropractic in Dyke Road Avenue. What is chiropractic? Chiropractic is a regulated profession which is recognised by the World Health Organisation and NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) for common ailments such as back and neck pain which affect the majority of the population at some stage. Chiropractors use non-invasive techniques to deal with muscle, joint and nerve related conditions. Specific techniques restore joint mobility impaired by injury or arthritis and soft tissue techniques to loosen tense or ‘knotted’ muscles as well as providing self-help advice to maintain health. What kind of conditions can it help? Most people think of back pain when they hear the words chiropractor or chiropractic but it can help other common conditions such as migraine and headaches (often caused by problems in the neck), shoulder complaints, as well as hip, knee, foot and ankle problems - for example sprains / strains or plantar fasciitis (policeman’s heel) but some people have little or no symptoms and still find they

function better when receiving chiropractic care. So the people we are able to help are very varied which makes for a very interesting and satisfying career. How did you become a chiropractor? Having started out receiving chiropractic care from the age of four years old, you might say that chiropractic chose me! I had been suffering with asthma from infancy and although chiropractic is not a ‘treatment’ or a ‘cure’ for asthma, it improved my breathing so I was able to run around more easily and be a normal child. The benefits were amazing. It takes five years at university to train to become a chiropractor and I now have more than 20 years of clinical experience and have the great privilege of helping people recover their health on a daily basis often without the need for drugs or surgery, which a lot of people find attractive. Do you live in the area? I live next door to the clinic with my wife and three teenage children so I am lucky not to have far for my daily commute!

FREEPHONE 0800 0961696

What do you like to do when you’re not working? I encourage all my patients to stay physically active and since there is no conclusive evidence that one form of activity or sport is significantly better than another I recommend pushing oneself to the limit at least twice a week. Personally I enjoy badminton, tennis and cycling in the Downs.

HOVE PARK News from the Friends of Three Cornered Copse...

NEW MEMBERS WANTED! The first Saturday in March was the latest work day for the Friends of Three Cornered Copse, and several of us braved the cold wind to perform maintenance on the newly planted hedge whips. The debate still persists about the plastic sleeves that wrap around the young trees; some experts maintain that this protects them from rabbits and provides some protection from the elements, and yet it introduces plastic into the environment. We carefully remove those sleeves which have done their job and dispose of them correctly. We were assisted by our park ranger Garry Meyer, for the last time, as he is moving on to other things in the ranger team. Garry has been with us for several years, and we would like to thank him for all his help and guidance on our work days and for his ideas

on maintenance in the copse. We have a new ranger starting with us who will soon pick up the reins from Garry. Our friends group had its 10th anniversary last year, which passed by unnoticed and uncelebrated, and at a recent meeting we noticed that we have had very few new members join the group in the recent years. We need new members to come in with new experiences and ideas to help develop the work we do to bridge the gap between the council’s rangers and the maintenance of our green spaces. The group was founded with the single purpose: “to promote, enhance and conserve the well-being of Three Cornered Copse”. If you have an interest in helping, or advising, or just coming along to our work days, please get in touch via our membership secretary at friendsofthreecorneredcopse@ Membership is free, at the moment, though some of our members do send a small donation now and then. We have our Annual General Meeting coming up, which would be a good place to come along and see what we get up to. More details on timing and location will be available on our website shortly (www. Our next work day will be the Great British Spring Clean, which now takes place each year. See for details. Simon Baxendale

HOVE PARK Our regular healthy living article from Mary Henderson, a doctoral researcher in gut health...

MENTAL EXERCISE There’s more to exercise than simply your waistline. Physical activity is important for your cardiovascular system yes, that’s your heart and lungs - but also your brain. A bout of moderate intensity exercise – 30 minutes of jogging, brisk walking, dancing, gardening - stimulates the production of immune cells and releases chemical messengers relaying information from one part of your body to another, including the brain. Your circulation doesn’t stop at your neck; your blood brain barrier is semi-permeable and carefully controls important chemicals that pass from your blood to your brain and back again. Controlling blood sugar by eating slow-release energy (low GI) carbohydrates and limiting free sugars is just as relevant to feeding your brain properly. Exercise confers benefits at any age. In children, it increases attention and alertness and goes hand-in-hand with improved academic achievement. In Physical activity is important adults, moderate activity also boosts certain cognitive functions post-exercise and for your brain longer-term effects of regular exercise include staving off dementia. Research is being done to explore exactly how exercise does this. One known mechanism is maintaining the volume of the part of our brain which plays a special role in memory: the hippocampus. This is both important in terms of remembering new information and retrieving long-term memories, but also related to other working memory processes such as reasoning and decision-making. A recent study which followed adults through to old age saw that even individuals who took up exercise in middle age also reaped some of the protective rewards of exercise such as slowed cognitive decline. It’s never too late to get moving. Mary Henderson advertorial

HOVE PARK News from the Friends of Hove Park...

SPRINGTIME IN HOVE PARK Spring seemed to get underway early this year and we hope for a long season of spectacular blossom in the park (see photo from an earlier year).

The Friends have contributed to the seasonal colour with their planting of deep purple crocuses over the last three years - the photo shows people hard at work during last November’s planting session. Once again the Friends are holding their Easter Trail and Easter Bonnet Competition at the Hove Park Café on Easter Monday (22nd April) from 11am to 1pm. Follow the trail around the park (cost £1 per child) and find all the clues to claim your Easter egg prize. The Easter Bonnet Competition is free to enter and will be judged at 12.30pm with prizes for the best entries. After last year’s washout we hope the weather will be kinder this time. Profits will go towards our fundraising for improving the children’s playground. We will also have information on our other events during the year on our stand.

On 18th & 19th May as part of the Brighton Festival Fringe the Friends, together with the award-winning community arts organisation Same Sky (well known in the city for the annual Burning the Clocks and the Children’s Parade which opens the Brighton Festival), will celebrate the city’s varied art heritage in a new Hove Park Art Festival. On both days of the Art Festival there will be demonstrations and workshops as well as art for sale, installations from Same Sky around the park, street food and refreshments, and various entertainments. On the Saturday, Same Sky will hold lantern making workshops during the day with a torchlight procession around the park in the evening including bands and choirs. On the Sunday there will be a Picnic in the Park with children’s entertainment and nature trails. Friends of Hove Park

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 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.

HOVE PARK 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 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).

HOVE PARK 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. 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. We all know we can recycle items like plastic bottles, paper, cardboard and glass. But if you’re unsure about what to do with specific items or materials, and put the wrong ones in your recycling, this can lead to your bin being contaminated and possibly being taken to waste rather than recycled. Using the guide, which can be

accessed online by phone, computer or tablet, means contamination of your recycling can be avoided.

For all your waste removal needs!!

Cllr Gill Mitchell, chair of the council’s environment, transport and sustainability committee, said: “I’m sure many of us have been in the situation where we don’t know what to do with a certain material or item. Do we put it in our recycling? Bin it? Give it away? Now, armed with our new A to Z, we’ll all be able to do the right thing and help protect our city and our planet better, and ensure we’re making the best use of the materials we no longer want or need.” To use the guide, log onto recycling. Click on the ‘Recycling A to Z’ link and you can then search 179 items alphabetically.

House Clearance Rubbish Clearance Loft, Office and Garden Clearance DIY & Builders Waste Waste Collection Wheelie Bins Supplied to Businesses

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.

Cllr Mitchell added: “Although our recycling rate is the highest it’s ever been, we must aim much higher. We’re hoping this guide is a game changer in helping us all to recycle more and reduce contamination.”

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

BRIGHTON MARATHON WEEKEND 2019... 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 medal and T-shirt. On Saturday 13th April, the 2019 Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races 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 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. Nigel Sarjudeen of Hove-based charity Off The Fence is to run his tenth Brighton Marathon for Martlets. He

Nigel Sarjudeen

has already raised £9,266 for the hospice, but is hoping to beat his target of £10,000. Nigel was inspired to run following unexpected heart problems in 2006 and, after rehabilitation, he joined a local running club. He said, “It was a real shock because I was young and fit. However, in some ways I’m glad it happened when it did because I was able to get over it.” When he gained his place in the 2010 Brighton Marathon, Nigel decided to support Martlets, since some of his friends and their families had been supported by the hospice. He said, “I never intended that I would keep on going; I did the first marathon, then the second and after that I just kept on running and now I’m on my tenth! One year, towards the end, I remember thinking, ‘I’m hurting and in pain.’ Then I remembered all the people who are hurting because they have lost their loved ones and it drove me forward.” To be part of Brighton Marathon Weekend, find out about volunteering at There will be some road closures between 5.30am and 4.30pm.

HOVE PARK If you haven’t made a will yet, here is a great opportunity...

length of 20 lines, with participants divided into three age groups: 8-11, 12-15 and 1519 years. Finalists will be invited to a tea party and prize giving at Brighton Dome on Thursday 23 May at 5pm when the winners will be announced.

MARTLETS WILL WRITING FORTNIGHT It is estimated that over half of adults in the UK don’t have a will, potentially causing future difficulties for their families and loved ones.

Pippa Smith of the Brighton Festival said: “The Peacock Poetry Prize offers a great opportunity for young people to have their writing appraised and appreciated by our panel of judges. The theme of journeys can be literal or abstract, whether it’s about a favourite stroll or the distance between you and your dreams.”

Martlets is encouraging people to plan for the future and book a place for its Will Writing Fortnight, which runs from Monday 13th to 24th May. Twelve will writing experts have offered to give their time free of charge to people in exchange for a donation to Martlets to help them provide care for people living with terminal illness across Brighton & Hove. Setting up an appointment is simple; just choose from one of the will writers listed at and contact them during the booking period from 15th April to 10th May. The minimum donation required is only £150 for a single will and £200 for a joint will.

Entrants should send their poems, along with their name and age, to peacock@ by Friday 12 April 2019.

HOVE PARK News from Martlets hospice...

EVERYONE WELCOME AT MARTLETS VOLUNTEER OPEN DAY Martlets is encouraging people to come along to its Volunteer Open Day on Saturday 6th April. The day will showcase the different opportunities available, how volunteering impacts on the services that Martlets can provide and the additional benefits to individuals from volunteering. The Volunteer Open Day will take place at the hospice on Wayfield Avenue between 10am and 3pm. Martlets is welcoming everyone from all ages, backgrounds and experience as there are so many different roles available. On the day there will be opportunities to meet key members of staff, take a tour of the hospice and participate in activities. Current Martlets volunteers will also be available to discuss what they do. Volunteers could be doing anything from helping at a fundraising event, tending to the hospice garden, running art and crafts activities, driving patients to appointments or volunteering in Martlets shops or distribution centres. Volunteers are vital to the care that Martlets is able to give people with terminal illness and their families in Brighton and Hove. Whether people are able to offer

Volunteer gamer Alex Mahoney

a few hours once in a while or a regular weekly shift, anyone who becomes part of ‘Team Martlets’ plays an important role in helping to keep the hospice running smoothly. Trish Rendel is a gardening therapy volunteer. She said: “When I heard that the hospice was setting up a horticultural therapy Sow and Grow group, I used to have my own gardening business, so I said that I had experience and signed up straight away. The group meets regularly to sow seeds, transplant seedlings and talk about plants; it’s all very social so there’s always lots of chat going on and we finish with a nice cup of tea and a slice of cake!” Alex Mahoney is a keen gamer who spends two days a week testing donated computer games and checking games consoles for Martlets. He commented: “We get all sorts of games and consoles donated to us and we need to know that they work before we can sell them on to raise money for the hospice. I play games a lot at home, so I know when something’s not working properly and it’s great to be able to use my gaming knowledge in a good way to help a charity.” Learn more about Martlets and volunteering on Saturday 6th April between 10am and 3pm at Wayfield Avenue, Hove, BN3 7LW.
