A local update…

News from the Friends of Stoneham Park October 31st is always a date filled with dread and fear. This year, 31st October will be even more dreadful and frigh ul: it will be downright terrifying. No, no, not because of that, silly! No, this year Halloween will be more scary because the Friends of Stoneham Park’s annual Halloween Fes val will be even be er than before! This year the fes val will, actually, be on Saturday 26th October. Like in previous years, we will be carving pumpkins in the park. What you do is pick up a pumpkin (as ever we are grateful to local supermarkets for dona ng these), get some of the tools from our carving sets, and hew your own Halloween lantern. It is always great fun and, for parents, all of the mess stays in the park and not at your lovely, clean home! At the same me, Tamworth Road resident David Jarvis will be pu ng on another Halloween show. You probably remember in previous years there was puppet show Peter Pumpkinhead and its sequel, the Haunted Schoolhouse, followed by last year’s Ghostly Tales. This year’s performance is different.

The new climbing frame under construc on

It will be immersive: a haunted maze with cobwebs, dry ice mist, a scary soundtrack and other surprises. You will jump out of your skin, or your money back!* Speaking of money, the funds raised will con nue to be spent on improving the park, in the li le ways we can. We do hope the City Council will go along with our plan to refurbish the basketball hoops (we have been asking them for several months now, with li le to show for it, sadly). We will cover the paint costs of local street ar st ‘Fek’ and con nue to fund the ac vi es of the Gardening Club. Although the new climbing frame (pictured, under construc on) was paid for en rely by the City Council, we were pleased to have had some valuable input. The original plans included a plas c slide and no monkey bars. We met with the local authority and made some sensible sugges ons, the wisest of which was to retain the metal slide we had waited almost a year for in 2017. Thankfully good sense prevailed, with the slide now facing the other way to avoid hea ng up in the sun. As we enter autumn, our thoughts will soon be turning to our Christmas Market on 7th December. We are desperate for some hands-on help. If you like what we do, why not drop us a line and get involved? Richard Hearnden *Not literally.

Meet a local yoga teacher...

Poets Person...Anya Patterson Anya Pa erson lives in Shirley Street and runs yoga classes at The Snug in Stoneham Park. How long have you lived in this area? I’ve lived in the area for about five years now. It’s such a friendly and community minded part of the world. I’ve always felt welcome, and really enjoy raising children here. When did you first start prac sing yoga? I have been prac sing yoga for 15 years now. For me, it just felt like the fundamental process that my life needed. I prac se more than one style of yoga – each brings out a different mental and physical response. Prac sing dynamically is a moving medita on but some mes a slower yoga is needed to really get into a ght spot. Tell us about your classes... My classes are light-hearted and full of choice. I want everyone that comes to feel they can go as far as they want, that the journey of yoga is theirs. I judge the energy of the class at the start to see if we start lying down or standing and, from there, I sequence a class around an area of the body. It’s called wind-down yoga because the focus is very much on coming to the end of the day, of breathing, finding space, and relaxing. Early next year, I will be star ng pre-natal yoga classes, as well as classes for mums and babies, and can’t wait – for me yoga while pregnant and in the early days of motherhood can ground you and connect you to yourself and your baby in a very special way. What are the benefits of yoga? The benefits vary so much person to person. It’s an incredibly personal path. Overall though, moving, grounding and stretching the body can only be good. The real benefits for me come in the no cing – no cing the body, no cing the breath, no cing the mind. And if that slowly filters into daily life, we become more present, more aware, kinder to ourselves and others. What do you like to do when you’re not working? When I’m not working, I spend as much me as possible with my two small children. They’re young for such a short me. We are lucky in this area we’ve such a variety of lovely parks to take them, out into nature and fresh air.

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

News from Westbourne councillors Carmen Appich and Chris Henry…

Councillor News... We have now been councillors for almost six months and have been able to get stuck into the priori es we campaigned on during the elec on. There are many distrac ons (mee ngs, mee ngs and more mee ngs) but we are determined not to have our focus on our residents shi ed. We toured the West Hove seafront with the Chair of the West Hove Forum to assess the state of the promenade and facili es. We want to channel some money into a spruce-up and give it some a en on so that it remains a beau ful, historic area. The two renovated shelters will be unveiled soon, forming part of this plan. Our discussions have also begun in earnest regarding play facili es on the West Hove Lawns. We’re determined to bring some family ac vi es here as there is the space and it seems crazy to expect the whole of West Hove to pile into the Lagoon or travel to Brighton paddling pool. And talking of the beach, we’re excited to be involved in improved beach accessibility for disabled people. Many local residents cannot equally access the beach and the sea as current beach access is not adequate for people

with a wide range of needs. Exci ng plans include working with the Beach Access Team and approaching the universi es to see whether design students might be able to come up with solu ons. Our local Westbourne community deserves safe and well-policed streets, so when it felt like there was a spike in crime and break-ins we joined with Peter Kyle MP so that our united voices could get the police to sit up and listen. Hopefully that worked and mee ngs with the Chief Superintendent will con nue over the rest of the year. We have been assured that you will get to see more community police around your neighbourhood. Finally, whilst it hasn’t been great summer weather for children, it’s been very lovely for pavement weeds! A ban on weedkiller in the city has meant council gardeners clearing weeds by hand and whilst some residents have commented on the charm of “living streets”, it’s not good if pavements become obstructed or drains become blocked. We’ve therefore been in constant contact with the council team and tried to direct resources to the worst areas. Moving forward we will ask the Environment Commi ee to source a nontoxic weedkiller for next summer! Cllr Carmen Appich and Cllr Chris Henry, Westbourne Ward

Local history from Rachel Bridgeman...

Lord Kitchener Drowned... A century ago, the news of Lord Kitchener’s death stunned the na on. He was to the First World War what Churchill would later be to the Second World War. Tough and ruthless, the Secretary of State for War embodied the Bri sh war effort - his was the face that persuaded thousands of young men to sign up and fight for their country – from Poets Corner they went in their droves to the recruitment office at 20 Church Road. Though scarcely remembered today, the sinking of HMS Hampshire with Kitchener on board was seen as nothing short of a na onal disaster at the me. The public reac on was akin to the death of President Kennedy – everyone would remember where they were when the news broke. In “Testament of Youth”, Vera Bri ain describes how “..during that day, Alexander Stringer; almost everyone in England must have dropped his occupa on to photo from Brighton & Hove City Libraries stare, blank and incredulous, into the shocked eyes of his neighbour. ..sad .. subdued….so great had been the authority over our imagina on of that half-legendary figure, that we felt as dismayed as though the ship of state itself had foundered in the raging North Sea.” During a fierce storm on 5th June 1916, whilst en route to secret talks with Tsar Nicholas II, HMS Hampshire had struck a German mine two miles off the Orkneys. She sank in just 15 minutes and although most men survived the explosion, they ended up dying of exposure or drowning – of the crew of 737 only 12 managed to reach the Orkney shores. Bodies would wash up for weeks a erwards. And for two Hove families, the news would be even more devasta ng. One was the family of 23-year-old First Class Stoker Alexander Stringer of Tamworth Road who had worked locally as a sawyer and boxmaker. He is commemorated on The Portsmouth Naval Memorial, the Kitchener Memorial in the Orkneys and on the Hove Roll of Honour.

News from the West Hove Forum Electric charging points At September’s mee ng of the West Hove Forum, the issue was raised of the council’s installa on of electric vehicle chargers. 200 lamp-post charge points are due to be installed across the city this year and ini al loca ons have been revealed (see electricbrighton.com/planned) but are s ll subject to change. Charging points have already been installed in Saxon Road and Wish Road, although there are no road markings to say that they are for vehicle charging, so currently anyone can park there. Some forum members were concerned that this will reduce the number of parking spaces for non-electric cars and that there seems to be no public consulta on on sites and how these will be regulated. Our ward councillors agreed to find out more about this.

Police recruitment and 101 calls Sussex Police are recrui ng 800 more officers over three years, including civilian staff. Resources will be concentrated on high crime areas. The police 101 service has been improved – if they can’t answer the call they will ring you back. You should dial 101, not 999, to report less-urgent crime, eg a stolen car, which doesn’t require an immediate response. 999 should only be used when there is a crime in progress or a threat to life. You can also report non-urgent crimes online at sussex. police.uk/ro/report/

Blooming Boundary Wish ward councillors and 45 people from the Blooming Boundary group have filled five new planters in Boundary Road/Sta on Road, with the help of Kate Bradbury from Gardeners’ World. They have also repaired the exis ng planters.

King Alfred Leisure Centre Following the withdrawal of developer Crest Nicholson from the King Alfred development, the West Hove Forum are concerned that improvements to the Western Esplanade are being linked to the development of the leisure centre. It looks as if the project will have to go back to the drawing board. The Crest Nicholson scheme wasn’t popular with the public and forum members agreed that

there was a need for a wide public consulta on, looking at all op ons. West Hove Forum mee ngs are a ended by ward councillors and a wide range of community representa ves. The next West Hove Forum mee ng will be at 2pm on Wednesday 23rd October at Hove Methodist Church Hall.

News from the council...

Plans for Knoll House... A proposal to change the kind of care delivered at Brighton & Hove City Council’s Knoll House adult social care centre in Ingram Crescent West was considered at a mee ng of the city’s Health and Wellbeing Board on 10 September. Knoll House is expected to become available soon for new council services. The changing needs of the city’s residents mean there is now a focus on priori sing mental health services. The plan is for Knoll House to deliver either: lower level supported accommoda on for younger adults with mental health needs to help them live more independently; or accommoda on for young people with higher levels of mental health needs but who do not require hospital treatment. Knoll House, along with Craven Vale in Brighton, currently delivers therapy and rehabilita on services for older people coming out of hospital with lower level needs. The nursing care at both centres was un l recently provided by the local NHS.

Knoll House and Craven Vale are not best placed to deliver these higher levels of care. So earlier this year the NHS told the council it was going to stop delivering nursing care at the centres, and deliver their rehabilita on services in other ways. The NHS have assured the council there will be no reduc on in the capacity or quality of their rehabilita on services.

AFFORDABLE IS OUR NAME, SAVING YOU MONEY IS OUR AIM WE GUARANTEE TO BEAT ANY GENUINE LIKE FOR LIKE QUOTE

But health and social care needs are changing, with more and more people leaving hospital with high levels of complex needs and needing nursing care 24-7; and a big increase in the number of younger adults with mental health needs who need residen al care.

Consulta on is underway with staff on plans to merge the two services and consolidate them into a single centre, offering respite care and suppor ng people with less complex needs who no longer need hospital care but are not yet well enough to move home. Craven Vale is the preferred site for this because it is much nearer to the Royal Sussex County Hospital. It is hoped that the merger and move to Craven Vale will be completed by the beginning of October. The Health and Wellbeing Board has given the goahead for full business cases to be worked up for the two proposed op ons for Knoll House. These will be brought back to the Board in January for a decision on a preferred way forward. The Board also asked for a further report detailing the capacity of the Clinical Commissioning Group to meet the needs of people who require more intensive and specialist nursing care following hospital discharge, as well as informa on on the impact of any new facili es being based outside Brighton & Hove.

News from Martlets hospice...

Hospice Care Week 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. 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 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.

The Royal Collection returns to Brighton...

A Prince’s Treasure... 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 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 decora ve items will return to the Royal Pavilion while extensive building work is being carried out in the East Wing at Buckingham Palace.

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

All the items were originally commissioned or bought by the 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. 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. 21 September 2019 – Autumn 2021 The Royal Pavilion For further informa on, visit brightonmuseums.org.uk
