A NEW TYPE OF DINER

We offer incredible new versions of food and drink that you might find familiar. We have sodas made in house with some help from our centrifuge machine. They have around one tenth of the sugar of regular sodas. Our cocktails are crafted with loving care using house made essences, bitters and artisanal spirits. Some of our cakes have no added sugar. Some are completely dairy free. We are really proud of our velvety, house made, organic cashew and tiger nut milk blend.

Our coffee has to be tasted to be believed. We only use the best butter, virgin coconut oil (for our many non dairy/vegan creations) and extra virgin olive oil for dressing. Our tea is brewed in clean glass, to the perfect temperature.

Everything we have is completely free of gluten. That's right, everything. Even our house made sourdough, sweet bakes and our buttermilk pancakes. Our aim is excellence as standard. We make super food for super people.

HOVE PARK A report on a new event in Hove Park last month...

HOVE PARK FUN PALACE... After some miserably cold and rainy days it was a great relief that it was dry for the Fun Palace. Many people were out enjoying the beautiful autumn sunshine and the various activities around the café. The free event, organised by the Friends, included Same Sky children’s workshops, sporting activities provided by the Hove Park Tennis Club and Riptide Health & Fitness, and opportunities to learn new skills and take part in varied creative activities offered by a number of local people. Anyway it has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words so here’s a few thousand words’ worth on the Fun Palace. Friends of Hove Park

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

HEALTHY LIVING - KETO DIETS... ‘Keto’ comes from ketones which are the source of energy being used when our body is using fat regardless of whether we’re following a ‘keto’ diet. You can produce ketones and not lose weight if your fat intake exceeds your daily energy requirements. The diet consists of eating less than 50g of carbohydrate, 75% total calories from fat and 15% from protein. You still need to exercise portion control. Weight loss requires negative energy balance: eating less than the energy you’re burning. Initial keto weight loss is rapid but can induce yo-yo dieting which is associated not only with weight gain over the long-term but early mortality. The keto diet is a form of ‘low carb’ diet which effectively gets you to lower your carbohydrate intake which is often the source of excess calories. Successful sensible and safe diets are those that can be maintained as part of a rounded healthy lifestyle with gradual weight loss and balanced nutrition. Anecdotally we may see friends ‘successfully’ losing weight but varying results can simply be explained by looking at the whole picture: the amount of daily activity, other lifestyle factors like stress and sleep, and body composition – is fat loss needed? This is considered a fad because it is not balanced and can easily lead to nutrient deficiencies, nausea, headaches, tiredness,

insomnia, poor exercise tolerance and constipation. Furthermore, it’s not advised for people with pancreatic, kidney, liver or fat metabolism problems because of its high fat content which puts added pressure on these organs essential for fat metabolism. More robust and long-term research needs to be done in healthy populations. Mary Henderson

HOVE PARK A bereavement allotment group for men...

MARTLETS EARTHWORKS First 12-week Open Access Course starting the week of 4 November 2019 Earthworks is a space for bereaved men to meet and get together to grow, harvest, tend and maintain Martlets’ new allotment. Throughout the year Martlets will be offering sessions on mornings, afternoons, evenings and on a Saturday. Previous gardening experience is not required and attendees are free to take on whatever jobs interest them, be it lighter work pricking out seedlings or getting stuck into digging and clearing. The Earthworks course will run for 12 weeks and is ‘Open Access’, meaning that any bereaved man in Brighton and Hove and the surrounding areas is welcome to attend; you do not have to have a previous connection with Martlets. The Earthworks counsellor will provide a welcoming and supportive environment in which to work and the session starts with a cuppa in the allotment shed around the wood burner. Sharing experiences of loss while working with the natural cycle of life through the seasons can be a positive and healing experience. For more information, please contact Martlets’ Patient and Family Support Administrator on 01273 273400, or email bereavement@martlets.org.uk. www.themartlets.org.uk News from the council...

An event at St Peter’s West Blatchington...

CAN YOU SPARE AN HOUR TO MAKE SOMEONE’S WEEK?

CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL

Before her health deteriorated, Linda travelled the world and worked as a letting agent and holistic therapist.

Back by popular demand St Peter’s Christmas Tree Festival (by the windmill). You are warmly invited to visit our 20 plus decorated trees with the theme ‘Book Titles’. To be officially opened by retired Brighton footballer Bruno at 5pm on Thursday 29th November. There will also be a memory tree, homemade cakes and refreshments, crafts, treasure hunt and raffle.   Entrance £2.50 for adults and children 50p. We will be open to view the trees on:Thursday 28th November, 1pm - 8pm Friday 29th November, 1pm - 6pm  Saturday 30th November, 10am - 2pm All proceeds go towards St Peter’s Church, Hangleton & West Blatchington Foodbank and The Martlets.

Since her disabilities developed, she can only leave the house once a week with assistance. A visit from Rebecca, a Together Co Befriending volunteer, makes a huge difference to Linda’s week. Linda: “When I became housebound, my friendships slowly dissolved as we had Rebecca and Linda less and less in common. My befriending volunteer, Bex, is great. She is the only person I see socially. My carers visit daily to help me with my daily routine, but there’s no time to chat. Together Co match you with someone who shares your interests. Even an hour a week of friendliness can make a lot of difference to my life.” Bex: “Popping round to Linda’s for a cup of tea and a catch-up is something I know we both look forward to each week. It’s a mutually beneficial connection.” About Together Co Befriending Everybody should have somebody. We match people with people to create friendships that make life better. We’ve been doing so for over 20 years. In that time, we’ve seen loneliness eased and lives changed – all through the simple power of human connection.

Hope to see you!

Please get in touch if you can spare an hour a week to visit a neighbour. Call us on 01273 775888 or email: sally.clarke@togetherco.org.uk

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

THE RETURN OF THE MUD On a cold, windy October Saturday, under leaden skies, pregnant with rain, our loyal volunteers gathered for our latest workday. And what a turnout. Featuring twelve adults, two toddlers, one dog, and our Park Ranger Neil, we set about our tasks in Three Cornered Copse. The main work item was controlling the large leaf ivy which has been slowly taking over control of the lower part of the wooded copse. One of us has identified it as Persian ivy (Hedera Colchica), one of the innocent garden centre plants that perhaps has been bought to cover a garden wall, but has spread into our parkland and competes with the native English ivy. This type of ivy is fast growing and covers the ground rapidly, and climbs our trees. Some of the root stems we weeded out had the diameter of a drainpipe. We control it to preserve the diversity of the vegetation along the woodland floor and prevent its domination over the native ivy. We seem to have a fascinating xenophobia about “invasive” species such as this ivy. Take the Spanish bluebell, the harlequin ladybird, Japanese knotweed and the demonised grey squirrel. All found their way, among many others, to our shores, often assisted by a human agent of some vintage for some purpose. And all of these, incidentally, can be found in Three Cornered Copse, at the right time. But given a few centuries, we tend to overlook their origin, and regard them as native. The rabbit, fallow deer and the house mouse were all introduced in the past but we now regard them as quintessentially British. It’s somewhat ironic that our native badgers are only the ones being culled, having been around for at least 250,000 years in these islands, according to fossil evidence. We also cleared some of the growth of weeds around the silver birches in the copse, at the foot of the green, restoring the pathway through the middle alongside the coronation stone. As the pathways turn to mud, the more thoroughfares we can use help to avoid slipping and sliding through the tree roots. As the slate grey sky yielded to a large dark cloud, the heavy rain began to fall persistently, and we all squelched back home through the mud. A huge thanks to our splendid volunteer team who braved the elements and the tea, coffee and biscuits which helped sustain our efforts. See local reviews of this business at

HOVE PARK The city’s annual film festival...

CINECITY... 8th-17th NOVEMBER This year’s Brighton film festival, CINECITY, is on from 8th to 17th November 2019, with the best in world cinema, a mix of premieres and previews, treasures from the archive and live cinema events. Highlights will include Portrait of a Lady on Fire – romance, eroticism and art collide in this sumptuous masterpiece from Céline Sciamma, winner of both the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay award at this year’s Cannes. It Must Be Heaven is an absurdist comic saga by awardwinning Palestinian director Elia Suleiman exploring identity, nationality and belonging, and you can see Björk’s big screen debut in The Juniper Tree, Nietzchka Keene's mystical and haunting fairytale made in 1990 and now beautifully restored. East Side Story will be screened as part of the British Film Institute’s “Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen” UK-wide season. Showing on 35mm, this fascinating and highly entertaining documentary made in 1997 explores the little-known genre of the ‘Iron Curtain musical’, glitzy all-singing, all-dancing entertainment made in the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc up until the mid-60s. To mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, there’s a UK premiere of a new live score to Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, the classic city symphony made in 1927. Venues this year for CINECITY include The Old Market theatre, Duke of York's Picturehouse, Dukes at Komedia, the Sallis Benney Theatre in Grand Parade, Fabrica Gallery in Duke Street, Lighthouse in Kensington Street and the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.

HOVE PARK This article is by local reflexologist Lucie Tran...

HOW REFLEXOLOGY CAN HELP YOU THROUGH THE WINTER BLUES With the clock change on 27 October and the inevitable shorter days and longer nights upon us, many of us suffer from the Winter Blues or SAD (seasonal affective disorder). According to nhs.uk, millions report suffering a winterrelated low mood and there is sound scientific proof that supports the theory that the change in season may affect our state of mind. Scientists believe that the way the human body responds to daylight and the way light enters the eyes causes a change in hormone levels. Light stops the body producing melatonin, the sleep hormone, so we wake up. Those with SAD are more affected by the lack of daylight during the winter months and produce higher levels of melatonin. This can cause lethargy, a persistent low mood, lack of interest in general activities, irritability, sleeping too much and trouble waking, craving fatty foods and weight gain. How reflexology helps. Most people find massage helps them to relax. It not only relieves tension or pain, it can bring about deep relaxation, which has been

Why Reflexology? creates deep relaxation reduces stress and tension eases arthritis pain encourages healing promotes well-being

shown to slow down brain waves, revitalising the brain’s chemistry and shifting the autonomic nervous system from fight-or-flight mode to rest-and-digest mode. By working the pituitary gland reflex on the back of the big toe, the reflexologist encourages the brain to produce more of the hormone endorphin, the hormone that has an analgesic effect on the body, meaning your body creates its own pain relief. This slows the heart rate, decreases blood pressure and promotes a sense of wellbeing, which leads to better sleep patterns, decreased anxiety and elevated mood. It also disrupts the pain cycle thereby easing symptoms and encouraging the body to relax. In addition, reflexology helps to balance all other body systems and control cortisol hormone levels, which regulates sugar levels and metabolism, reduces inflammation, controls blood pressure, and assists with memory function and increased concentration. What is reflexology? Reflexology is a non-invasive pressure therapy based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet linked to every part of the body. A thorough knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology means that it works alongside mainstream medicine as a wonderful complementary therapy.

HOVE PARK An appeal to help people in fuel poverty...

BRIGHTON LIONS CLUB PROJECT WENCESLAS Brighton Lions Club are once again launching Project Wenceslas, a campaign to help combat fuel poverty. People who receive the annual Winter Fuel Payment and feel they do not need it are invited to donate the amount to Brighton Lions. Excess winter deaths in Brighton & Hove are slightly higher than both England and the South-East. People in difficulty will be contacting agencies such as Age UK who will refer them to Brighton Lions. Direct applications will not be accepted to ensure all the donated money goes to the people who really need it. Brighton Lions will make payments direct to the energy supply companies, not the individual beneficiaries, whose details will not be known to the Lions. “Last winter we spent more than £9,000,” said Pete Dilloway, President of Brighton Lions Club. “That was an increase of £1,000 on the previous year so there really is a need even in this, the so-called affluent South-East.

One of those we helped last winter had been admitted to hospital with hypothermia having been too scared of running up bills to use enough heating.” Donations can be made by credit/debit cards through Brighton Lions Club’s website at www.brightonlions. org.uk or cheques payable to Brighton Lions Wenceslas should be sent to Brighton Lions Club, c/o 9 Westfield Crescent, Brighton, BN1 8JB. People sending cheques are asked to confirm that their donations may be treated as Gift Aid so that the value of the donation can be increased by 25%.
