HOVE PARK An interview with a new local councillor...

MEET HOVE PARK COUNCILLOR SAMER BAGAEEN Samer Bagaeen was elected in May as a Conservative councillor for Hove Park ward, alongside Vanessa Brown. Tell us about your background... I first came to Hove in 1988 when I was offered a King Hussein of Jordan Scholarship at, what was then, Davies’s College on Cromwell Road. I did A-Levels in Physics, Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, getting 2 A’s and a B in old money. I went on to study architecture and planning at the Bartlett in London. I set up the Brighton Planning School in 2008, and after a two-year stint with the Rockefeller Foundation partnering with city leaders building resilience, I was appointed as Professor of Planning at the Kent School of Architecture and Planning where I retain a strategic delivery role. I spend my working hours at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in London. I am married to a wonderful paediatric dentist who works for the Sussex Community NHS Trust in Lancing and Worthing and we have two children, twins, a boy and a girl who will be going to Cardinal Newman in September.

Are they excited about their dad being a councillor and a governor at their school? Indications are positive so let’s see how that goes as they grow older in Hove. We don’t live in the ward yet but are house hunting so open to offers for viewings. What made you want to become a councillor? I believe that we change ourselves by trying to change the world. I wanted to become a councillor because I want to create a better future and I want the residents of Hove Park and the city to be a part of shaping that future. What do you hope to achieve in the Hove Park area? I want to bring people together to solve some of the most pressing challenges of our ward, everything from new housing and development to the toilets in the north cemetery and the soap dispensers in the toilets in Hove Park.

FREEPHONE 0800 0961696

What are your interests outside politics? I have been a Rotarian in Brighton and Hove for over 10 years and my club meets at the Hove Club on Mondays. We run the Christmas float for 10 evenings in December with a Santa, music and a Christmas tree in support of the Martlets. I play squash having previously played tennis and I might just pick that up again playing on the courts at Hove Park.

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

RED-S – PUTTING MORE OUT THAN YOU’RE GETTING IN It is difficult to compare physical activity levels and dietary habits. Whenever you compare how much exercise you do or how much you eat, you rarely see what someone else does 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A lot to some people might actually be what’s recommended but it’s easy to get used to a new normal. About 60% of adults are achieving the required 150 minutes per week of moderately intense activity which includes brisk walking. Vigorous counts for more but be wary that it doesn’t take such a toll on you that you are unable to move a muscle the rest of the day or overcompensate with your calorie intake. It’s important to be on your feet regularly throughout the day. However, despite this very important message to move more, there’s a limit and many find their health affected when they do too much. Relative Energy Deficiency in Sports (RED-S) is a syndrome affecting both men and women in which more energy is expended than calories consumed. The body is forced to use energy that should be going towards our biological

systems such as the immune, hormone, reproductive and gastrointestinal. This impacts performance - becoming unresponsive to training - and increases risks of heart and bone disease. Some of the signs are low energy levels, irritability, depression, poor concentration, irregular or no periods and infection. To start redressing the balance, avoid fasted training and low-carb diets and pull back on some of your sessions. Go to your GP or a qualified sports nutritionist for advice. Mary Henderson

HOVE PARK News of the first Hove Park Art Festival which took place on 18th/19th May...

HOVE PARK INAUGURAL ART FESTIVAL The first Hove Park Art Festival was a great success, enjoying good community support and fine weather. Local artists demonstrated and sold their work in two marquees and the open air, and there were children’s art workshops and other activities. Saturday evening saw a carnival atmosphere with a colourful and lively lantern procession winding round the park, led by a travelling rocket and an energetic white-costumed samba band. With lanterns glowing more brightly as it grew darker, the procession passed several huge Same Sky illuminated installations and finally stopped to enjoy the singing of a local choir. On Sunday new activities included the Picnic in the Park and dynamic Zumba. Next year it is hoped to hold a bigger and better festival. Friends of Hove Park

HOVE PARK Here are some of the treats in store at the BOAT in Dyke Road Park this month...

JULY AT THE BRIGHTON OPEN AIR THEATRE... There’s a treat for dogs this month at the Brighton Open Air Theatre, with The Pop Bingo Doggy Style Disco. The smash hit of the Edinburgh Fringe, The Pop Bingo Disco has entertained grown-ups and kids alike with beats banter and bonkers bingo, and now comes the world premiere of The Pop Bingo Disco – Doggy Style! Get your eyes down, win prizes and hit the dance floor with your furry best friend! All humans and dogs require a ticket (Sunday 14th July). There are two shows for children from Mr Dilly’s World of Wonder - The Adventures of Robin Hood Show and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Show – hilarious adaptations of classic tales, in which story, music and comedy come together with just a little bit of mayhem. (Both shows are on Sunday 28th July.) Also for children is The Legend of King Arthur by Box Tree Productions (Sunday 21st July). Arthur is tired of his knuckles being rapped by his teacher, being ignored by his parents and bullied by his brother. Little does he know that he is destined to pull the sword from the stone and, with

Merlin and his knights by his side, unite Britain and thwart the evil plans of Morgan Le Fay! The Total Who Show is back on Saturday 6th July, with two hours of hits from Johnny Warman’s Magic Bus Band, including My Generation, Pinball Wizard, Who Are You, Substitute and more, more, more! Drama at the BOAT this month includes Wuthering Heights, with an adaptation of Emily Bronte’s passionate tale of forbidden love and revenge, set on the windswept Yorkshire moors (Wed 24th to Sat 27th July). Brighton Little Theatre bring to life the story of Mary Stuart, imprisoned in England as Elizabeth I hesitates over the signing of the death warrant that will end her life (Wed 17th to Sat 20th July); and JW Productions perform Alan Ayckbourn’s sparkling comedy Joking Apart (Wed 31st July to Sun 4th August). Feral is a new one-woman gypsy-folk musical drama (4th and 5th July). Shakespeare at the BOAT this month includes The Comedy of Errors and Hamlet. There’s also comedy from Stephen Frost’s Impro All Stars, and a dance showcase for young artists, Amidst. You can book tickets and find out about other shows at www.brightonopenairtheatre.co.uk.

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

THE COPSE UNDER THREAT The cold wet June weather paused for a morning on the 15th and warm sunshine managed to bless our work day in the Three Cornered Copse. We welcomed three new faces who joined our work party that morning; it’s so good to have new people joining. The work list that day was mainly about maintenance and tidying up. We added to, and repaired, the habitat hedge near the edge of the grass. It’s a long pile of dead wood and twigs, which provides a habitat for birds and insects. We saw a wren in the hedge recently, and it probably had its nest in there. The rapid growth season is upon us and this meant that some parts of the bridleway were difficult to pass, so with the help of Neil, our ranger, we cut back the overgrowth that was closing the path in several places. One or two trees had come down too, which needed cutting to allow the headroom for cyclists, and theoretically, horse riders. Although it has probably been a while since any riders used the public bridleway. The planning proposals for Toads Hole Valley seem to be progressing. One of the proposals features the developers’ assumption that the council will allow them to encroach on a three-metre strip of the edge of the copse adjacent to the King George VI Avenue at the northern end. Unfortunately this would threaten the mature hedgerow, which is a habitat for so many birds, insects and small mammals. This also provides a physical barrier of sight and sound from the traffic noise. This is, of course, our council’s land, which the developers expect to acquire for no cost. (Ironically the significant cost will not be monetary but environmental.)

The reason for this encroachment is to widen the roadway at the top of the Avenue. It’s a shame that the considerations of traffic seem to override the natural life of our hedgerow. We have planted hundreds of trees in that area recently, all native species, which will be lost if this is approved. Comments are still being taken at the planning website, until 2 July, so please hurry if you wish to register an objection. Our next work session is not until September; hopefully the sunshine will return before then. All newcomers welcome, fine weather (almost usually) guaranteed. Simon Baxendale

HOVE PARK Here are some lovely local gardens to visit...

MACMILLAN COASTAL GARDEN TRAIL There are 12 brand new gardens this year on the eighth Macmillan Coastal Garden Trail, which takes place over the weekend of 27th and 28th July. The annual event, organised by Geoff Stonebanks’ Driftwood Fundraising Group, raises money for the Macmillan Horizon Centre in Brighton, which offers local support for people affected by cancer.

3 Shirley Drive

At least 22 gardens between Brighton & Hove and Seaford will be opening their gates. All the gardens will open between 11am and 5pm on Saturday 27th or Sunday 28th July, or both days, many serving homemade tea and cakes. Entry costs £3 per garden, or £8 for a day ticket. The following gardens are not far from Hove Park: 3 Shirley Drive, Hove, BN3 6NQ Pat and John Burnage have decided to open their Hove garden for Macmillan for the first time. Pat describes the gardens as her favourite rooms in the house - full of old friends and lovely memories. There will probably be a bric-a-brac stall raising funds for Macmillan too, and tea and cakes!

Be aware there are double yellow lines along a lot of Shirley Drive. However, there is a long lay-by on the opposite side of the road, adjacent to Hove Recreation Ground, with a four-hour restriction. (Open both days.) 5 Glen Rise Close, Brighton, BN1 5LQ Annelise is a professional gardener who is developing a challenging garden on heavy clay into a plantsman’s paradise with an emphasis on colour, late season perennials, choice tender plants, unusual annuals and wildlife-friendly areas. The garden also features a pond brimming with dragonflies and frogs, a wildflower patch, three chickens and a handmade clay oven. Come and enjoy tea and homemade cakes surrounded by colourful containers. (Open both days.)

Take a look at my gardens on my Houzz page: www.houzz.co.uk/pro/anna2471/anna-helps-garden-design

The trail website – www.macmillangardentrail.co.uk – has details of all the gardens on the trail, or you can get more information from Geoff Stonebanks on 01323 899296.

HOVE PARK This year’s PRTP promises to be the biggest yet...

A local event...

PADDLE ROUND THE PIER... 6th & 7th JULY

BRIGHTON YOGA FESTIVAL

Since its inception in 1996 Paddle Round the Pier has grown into the largest FREE charity beach festival in Europe, taking place on Hove Lawns. The festival now features the very best in water, street and urban sports, live music and family-focused entertainment.

Over the years the volunteer-led organisation has raised over £300,000 for local causes. Two years ago PRTP became a charity and can now award grants to a greater number of groups, with the aim of promoting safe, amateur water sports and education in water safety. The impact large events have on the environment is something that PRTP takes very seriously and last year’s festival was circa 95% single-use plastic free. New for 2019 are exhibitors such as the Brighton Dolphin Project, Re-Plastic, Eco-Bricks and many more demonstrating ways to both reduce and remove plastic use. There are activities for all the family including our furry friends with the Doggie Paddle. Water activities include Paddle Something Unusual and The Big Paddle, where everyone grabs their board, SUP, kayak or other paddled craft and sets off around the West Pier. For any PRTP events, register now via www.paddleroundthepier.com

This year’s Brighton Yoga Festival takes place over the weekend of Saturday 27th (10am-7pm) to Sunday 28th July (10am-6pm) at BHASVIC (Brighton Hove & Sussex Sixth Form College), 205 Dyke Road. It’s the second largest annual yoga festival in the UK and features the best yoga, meditation and wellbeing teachers in the UK. The theme is “Something for Everyone” - there’s something for all ages, with beginners’ classes, children’s entertainment, fascinating talks, great prizes, chances to try new experiences, music and mind-blowing demonstrations. There will be a Therapy Area and a Meditation Zone, plus local food and drink suppliers, and the event will be as plastic-free as possible. All the money raised will fund yoga outreach projects across the city. You can register at www.brightonyogafoundation. org to avoid queuing on the day. Entrance will be on a pay-whatyou-can basis.

Offering a range of fresh fish, shellfish and seafood products. Committed to being plastic free so only use 100% compostable pots made of veg/plant based matter, waxed paper and paper bags. Open Thurs through to Sun 10am - 4.30pm.

HOVE PARK Great activities for the summer...

SCHOOL HOLIDAY ADVE 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:

01273 027657

“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

ENTURES 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 12-15 year olds as well as Paddle Board lessons for all ages and adventure days for groups. For more information visit www.bikesupbrighton.com

HOVE PARK An event for jazz lovers coming up at Brighton Dome...

JAZZ RE:FEST 2019... Saturday 27 July 2019, 12pm-8pm Following a fantastic event in 2018 which was nominated for the Jazz FM Best Live Experience award, Brighton Dome welcomes the return of Jazz Re:Fest this summer. Now in its 7th year, the family friendly one-day festival showcases the incredibly diverse, colourful, expressive and creative world of jazz music and alternative culture. In addition to live performances, there will be a selection of contemporary DJs playing music that connects the dots between jazz and other genres. The festival promises an exciting line-up, led by a stalwart of the London jazz scene, tuba player and composer Theon Cross, who made a name for himself both as a member of the award-winning quartet Sons of Kemet, and for his own powerful solo material. Joining the line-up is singer-songwriter Zara McFarlene, the UK’s foremost Black British jazz vocalist. She fearlessly explores original material and reworks well known classics from the worlds of jazz and Jamaican music. Up-and-coming UK jazz musician Rosie Turton performs this year. Her most recent album blends trombone,

violin and electronics over a bed of interlocking grooves and soundscapes, exploring jazz, hip-hop and classical Indian music. Alto-saxophonist and percussionist Kevin Haynes Grupo Elegua is also joining this year’s line-up. He fuses contemporary jazz with influences drawn from African music. Sarah Tandy turned to jazz music at the age of 20. She now performs alongside a band of mixed personalities, reflected in their music to accommodate every member’s individual musical temperament. Having signed to Brighton-based label Tru Thoughts early on in his career, Werkha has been on a playful exploration in the development of his musical style. His live shows now blend some of the UK’s most exciting jazz musicians into the mix with his own instrumental, DJ and sampling informed abilities. Completing this year’s line-up is Nigerian musician Camilla George, whose early interest in the saxophone led her to go on to join the award-winning band Jazz Jamaica and form her own project showcasing the stars of the new UK jazz scene. Her unique style blends Afrofuturism, hip-hop and jazz.
