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 Xe[fliYlkk\id`cbgXeZXb\j% FliX`d`j\oZ\cc\eZ\XjjkXe[Xi[%N\ dXb\jlg\i]ff[]fijlg\ig\fgc\%

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

MUSHROOM SEASON... The season of mists and mellow frui ulness is upon us, but this is also the season of mushrooms, and Three Cornered Copse has several species proudly on display. The leaves are only just star ng to fall in the woodland, so the fungus has to begin sporing before the forest floor is covered with the leaf li er in deepest autumn. There are over 14,000 species of mushroom in the UK; most are edible, but even experts have no real way of telling which are poisonous, unless they can make a defini ve iden fica on. A general rule is to avoid the ones with a red cap (among others). The one pictured may well be a Meadow Pu all, but there are no guarantees... Unless you’re a real expert, don’t forage for mushrooms in Three Cornered Copse. Our new informa on board is ready for installa on, and wai ng for our next work day, with a willing Park Ranger, to supervise its erec on. It’s taken a few years to get there, but now the work on the house at the bo om end of the path has completed, at the junc on with Goldstone Crescent, we can go ahead. The board was removed from the twi en between Woodland Avenue and Woodland Drive, cleaned and treated for redeployment. One corner of the copse s ll remains under threat from the traffic plans for the widening of Dyke Road Avenue. Mixed and uncommi ed answers from the council’s planners add to the uncertainty. A recent ques on on the viability of the proposal to shave off the top of the copse land to provide tarmac for a council-specified pedestrian and cycle lane was answered as “The requirement for/suitability of this proposed change will be determined by an assessment of its impacts and the designa on/status of the land involved.“ Clearly, the decision has not been formed, and it’s worth wri ng to our councillors to let them know the strength of feeling on this, before it is decided. Some support for the copse from Campaign For Rural England (Sussex) is listed as a comment on the planning website. “This [Three Cornered Copse] is a fantas c area of woodland which should be protected, without sec ons being sliced off for tarmac.” It’s encouraging, but may not be enough. But our work days persist, and as usual, all are invited. The next few dates are 12 October, 9 November and 7 December. All permi ed by decent weather of course.

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

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGISTERED NUTRITIONIST AND A ‘NUTRITIONIST’? At the moment, anyone can call themselves a ‘nutri onist’ but not everyone can call themselves a registered nutri onist. Only those on the Associa on for Nutri on’s (AfN) UK Voluntary Register of Nutri onists can. To be listed here, you must be a competent, qualified nutri on professional who meets the AfN’s rigorously applied standards for scien fically sound evidencebased nutri on and its use in prac ce. A registered nutri onist will have a BSc degree or equivalent plus typically at least three years’ experience of evidence-based applica on of nutri on science in professional prac ce. This is the only register of qualified nutri onists recognised by bodies such as Public Health England and the NHS. The AfN is a registered charity and its role is to protect and benefit the public. Like other professions, our knowledge relies on peer review to provide insight, accountability and change and we must be careful that we avoid claims based on poor or

misrepresented evidence such as pseudoscience. For example, we are not allowed to make claims unsubstan ated by peer-reviewed and published scien fic evidence to directly endorse or validate a specific food or supplement. If issues fall outside of our competence, we refer a client or group on to the appropriate professional such as a GP or a die an. We can only contribute to the management of people with medical condi ons if we are part of a team under the supervision of a suitably qualified doctor. Next me you seek nutri on advice, check to see if they’re on the register. Mary Henderson

HOVE GREYHOUND STADIUM When the first mee ng was held here on 2 June 1928, the stadium stood in open country, the nearest houses being a few in Old Shoreham Road, near Leighton Road. Speedway, or dirt track racing as it was called, was tried out in 1929/1930, but was not a success. This view shows the east side of the stadium, in an unfinished state. The square structure at the far end may have shown the be ng odds in lights for the greyhound races and the dirt track race could have been a warm-up event. Date of photo: 1929.

H HO HOVE OVE PARK PA ARK R Great news if you fancy a walk in the countryside...

News from Martlets hospice...



A new bridleway in Hove has opened up a “missing link” in the city’s footpath network, giving countryside access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

Hospice Care Week takes place on 7-13 October and Martlets is encouraging people to find out more about hospice care and the different services it can offer.

The new path links rights of way on Benfield Hill and the New Barn Farm area with the Dyke Railway trail and beyond. The opportunity to open the path arose a er West Hove Golf Club approached the South Downs Na onal Park Authority for planning permission for an acous c bund, buffering the course from the A27. Crea ng the new bridleway and opening up the surrounding access land was one of the planning condi ons. Cllr Anne Pissaridou, chair of the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Commi ee, said: “I am delighted that by working in partnership with the Na onal Park Authority and West Hove Golf Club we have been able to open this missing link and create an a rac ve and high quality east-west route, north of the A27, for cyclists, horse riders and walkers.”

Martlets want everyone affected by terminal illness to know they can s ll feel hope, purpose and possibility. It is working towards changing percep ons of hospice care. Pa ent Geoff Geoff Farmer Farmer who has been an outpa ent at Martlets for over two years commented: “Martlets has done prac cal things for me like ge ng me a blue disabled badge. I’ve also talked to a counsellor. Martlets has so much to offer that people just don’t know about.” Most people now receive hospice care in their own homes and visit the hospice for pain relief, physiotherapy, counselling, welfare advice and social ac vi es. Others choose to spend their final days at the hospice or a end as inpa ents for respite care or symptom management. Martlets care is free to local people with life-limi ng illnesses, who can be referred through their GP, consultant, pallia ve care team or district nurse. Visit for more informa on or call 01273 273400.

an ongoing na onwide campaign promo ng community at the heart of culture and culture at the heart of community, with a weekend of ac vi es created by, for and with local people on the first weekend of October every year. In 1961 theatre director Joan Li lewood (co-creator with the Theatre Workshop of Oh! What a Lovely War which was later filmed by Sir Richard A enborough on the iconic West Pier) and architect Cedric Price designed a Fun Palace building - a ‘laboratory of fun’ dynamically changeable for the needs and wishes of the community. Although the idea was an inspira on to many the visionary space was never created due to bureaucra c and prac cal problems. In 2014 (the centenary of Joan Li lewood’s birth) Fun Palaces were re-imagined as spaces that could be created anywhere in under-used buildings and other already available spaces. This led to the idea taking off and there has been an increasing number of Fun Palaces each year since. For more informa on about fun palaces see

The Royal Collec on returns to Brighton...

A PRINCEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S TREASURE... 21 September 2019 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Autumn 2021, The Royal Pavilion

The Kylin Clock from the Royal Collec on Trust Š Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 2019

Exquisite items of art and furniture owned by George IV have returned to the Royal Pavilion for the first me in 170 years. Items lent by Her Majesty The Queen from the Royal Collec on include majes c 15-foot high porcelain pagodas and the Kylin Clock, an extraordinary golden extravaganza featuring turquoise Chinese lions. The Royal Collec on loan of more than 124 unique decora ve items will return to the Royal Pavilion while extensive building work is being carried out in the East Wing at Buckingham Palace. All the items were originally commissioned or bought by the visionary Prince Regent, who later became George IV, who transformed a former lodging house into an extravagant, exo c palace inspired by a roman c vision of Chinese and Indian design. For the first me ever visitors will be able to see how these stunning items would have looked in their former home. This unique project will show the Royal Pavilion as it looked before the items were moved to Buckingham Palace by Queen Victoria in 1847 when it was thought the Royal Pavilion might be demolished. Keeper of the Royal Pavilion David Beevers said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled to have so many pieces which were commissioned by George IV for the Royal Pavilion to be on display here. They are beau ful items with a wonderful history linking them to the Pavilion.â&#x20AC;? The Royal Pavilion is considered George IVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most exo c extravagance. He first visited Brighton when he was the Prince of Wales and was thrilled to be able to enjoy the delights of the town away from the formality of the royal court in London. He soon commissioned Henry Holland and later the architect John Nash to transform

his original humble lodging house into a palace fit for a prince, adding domes and minarets and furnishing the interior in the most lavish and opulent style. The Prince loved Asian and Chinese design and employed the most talented cra smen to make items designed in the Chinoiserie style which later became the height of fashion. He especially loved Chinese ceramics mounted in France and England with gilt-bronze mounts, Chinese export porcelain and furniture, and English and European furniture in exo c styles.

community is not united by all being the same as each other – because we aren’t! What unites us is a mutual understanding of respect for each other, willingness to listen and learn, and support for everyone in being who they are, in all their glorious uniqueness. The atmosphere is one of respect, relaxa on, learning and fun. We do our best to accommodate specific needs that choir members may have. People of all levels of musical experience and ability are very welcome to join in. “What makes GLOW unique is the incredibly suppor ve, almost family, atmosphere that is created. No one feels excluded but instead greeted and welcomed into a place where there is no judgement, only harmony and an amazing range of beau ful songs in a variety of styles and subjects. There is a sense of real peace and contentment that is commented on by many at the end of a session.” Ann A GLOW choir meets on Saturdays near Seven Dials, and sings songs from across the globe in many moods and genres, all taught by ear. Once a term GLOW has a sharing/concert, from which at least 50% of the profits are donated to relevant chari es. Last term GLOW raised £95 for MindOut! Whilst many par cipants enjoy performing at the End of Term Sharing, there is no obligaon to perform if you just want to come and enjoy the sessions. The main focus of GLOW choir is par cipants’ enjoyment, suppor ve community and experiencing a group sing in an encouraging environment. Newcomers welcome!
