Meet a local artist who is hosting a Christmas Open House...

Local Person...Sophie Wake Artist Sophie Wake lives in Walpole Road. Her painting “HERD” was chosen for the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition in 2018 and her Red Brick House was the winner of this year’s Best Artists Open House in May. She is currently hosting her first Christmas Open House. How long have you lived in the Queen’s Park area? Thirty years this year. I love it! Tell us about your art...

What can we expect to find in your Christmas Open House?

Expect a feast of original paintings, prints, cards, hand-painted wooden animals, festive victuals and cosy wood fires to treat and awaken the senses.

Who are your own favourite artists?

Firstly I love the work of Arcabas, a contemporary religious artist, whose wonderful work fills the simple church of St Hugues-de-Chartreuse in the heart of the Chartreuse mountains. His sacred work speaks to me on many levels. It is deeply devotional and moving yet is tempered with a sympathetic, gentle humour. Also the work of Antony Gormley, a British sculptor whose artistic philosophy resonates profoundly with me. Lastly,

What do you like to do to relax? Meditate, bake cakes and dance.

Red Brick House is at 10 Walpole Road and is open from 11am-5pm on 23, 24, 30 November and 1, 7 & 8 December. For more information, visit sophiewake.com or aoh.org.uk.

© Sophie Wake

I worked for over twenty years as a busy freelance illustrator before moving towards a fine art practice that responds more to my meditation practice and interest in Buddhism. My passion lies in reaching inward, attempting to capture the beauty of raw emotion through the expressions of my animallike beings and more recently my new series of ‘Moon Dancers’ with their deeply devotional and transcendent depictions of femininity. These liberated women dance uninhibited under the light of the moon, rejoicing in their inner beauty and shining wisdom. I celebrate the pure unfiltered joy of experiencing life in the present, as it seems this is also where my most authentic creativity emanates.

I love Picasso’s ceramics and constantly find joy and inspiration in his brilliant works.

Here are a few Christmas events coming up at St Luke’s Church...

A very useful guide...

Christmas at St Luke’s

Dementia Care Book JE Hardacre, RMN, SRN, CPN, has worked with carers and people with dementia. She believes in the power of sharing stories and wisdom, and in cultivating integrity, compassion and respect for caregivers and the people for whom they care.

TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE WITH DEMENTIA FEATURES:

Personal experiences from carers who look after people with dementia Reflections on what to expect in the caring role Hints and tips on the practical aspects of providing care Advice on essential items that can make life more comfortable for people with dementia

Buy this book for family members and friends at the point of diagnosis, so they are prepared.

Wednesday 11th December

– Stephen P, Carer

This book fulfils my needs. Firstly, it is authoritative, written by someone who has had many years of close contact with people living with dementia. Every person living with dementia will not exhibit exactly the same symptoms or in the same order as another person living with the disease. Secondly, it is written in a language more suitable to the lay person – labels or expressions which have specific meanings to the medical profession are not used, or if they have to be, are fully explained. Thirdly, the book is divided into self-contained chapters dealing with separate subjects, which may have relevance at a specific time. I can thoroughly recommend it.

7.30pm: Blue Christmas - a service to remember someone you’ve lost

 pm: Crib Service with Albert 4 the Donkey 11.30pm: Midnight Mass Christmas Day

10am: Parish Eucharist

PRICE: £6.99

St Luke’s Queen’s Park Press

Boxing Day  12 noon: Eucharist The Feast of St Stephen the Deacon Sunday 5th January

6pm: Epiphany Carols

The book is available over the Christmas period from St Luke’s Vicarage, Queen’s Park Terrace, at £6.99. Alternatively you can email slqp@btinternet.com or phone 01273 570978.

This month’s column from the local WI... Just one concert this month at St Luke’s Church…

Hanover Queens WI

Music and Wine at St Luke’s On Friday December 6th we are celebrating the 70th birthday of regular composers who we feature in our series, Barry Mills and John Hawkins.

One of the highlights of our year and a great evening with local sculptor Hazel Reeves last month.

She entertained us with stories of her work and the making of her Emmeline Pankhurst statue in Manchester. Our next get-together is on Thursday 12th December, 7.30 to 9.30pm, at the Church of the Annunciation, 89 Washington Street, BN2 9SR. It’s Christmas party time so there’ll be fun and games, tipples and nibbles – and cups of tea or coffee. Maybe cake! Do come and meet us then and join up in the New Year if you think it’s for you. Find us on Facebook or contact us at wihanoverqueens@gmail.com.

Local violinist Ellie Blackshaw and pianist and composer Michiko Shimanuki pair up and dedicate a celebratory concert to our much loved local (and international) septuagenarian composers Barry Mills and John Hawkins. The programme includes Mozart’s sonata in G - K301, a Debussy sonata, Rachmaninov and Shimanuki, and John Hawkins and Barry Mills the atmospheric ‘Flos Ferri’ for solo violin by Michiko alongside Mills and Hawkins. Free cake will be provided. We will then have a break until our next concert which is on January 24th, 2020. Music & Wine at St Luke’s would like to take this chance to wish you all a great Christmas and Happy New Year. The concert takes place at St Luke’s Church, Queen’s Park Road, Brighton BN2 9ZB, and starts at 7.30pm. Tickets £7 / £5 under-25s / under-16s free. Disabled access. Wine and refreshments served.

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.

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 WE GUARANTEE TO BEATconfirm ANY that their donations may be “Last winter we spent more than FOR LIKE as GiftQUOTE Aid so that the value of the donation £9,000,” said Pete Dilloway, President of GENUINE LIKEtreated can increased by 25%.

Don’t forget to vote in the General Election...

New Electric Election Vehicle Charging Candidates Points Following a tender process, the council has appointed Electric Blue to install and maintain the electric vehicle charge points.

These are the candidates in the Brighton Kemptown constituency for the General Election on Thursday 12th December: Graham Cushway (Brexit Party) Joe Miller (Conservative)

Alexandra Phillips (Green Party)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle (Labour)

Ben Thomas (Liberal Democrats)

The project is being funded with £300,000 from the Office of Low Emissions, and £100,000 from Electric Blue.

The 207 new points will include 30 in areas with high parking demand where the council are proposing mandatory Electric Charging spaces, many of them in response to requests from residents who own or are thinking of buying electric vehicles but have no offstreet parking available.

Lamp post chargers: Most of the charging points will be installed on lamp posts and will provide a full charge for vehicles parked overnight. These will be installed by January next year. A mobile phone app showing the locations of all points in the city and whether they are in use will be available to download. Drivers will pay 28p per kilowatt hour to charge their vehicles at the public points. Fast chargers: Fast chargers, taking around five hours, which are already installed in the city centre, will be integrated into the new app. The council will consider installing further fast chargers outside the city centre if there is a clear demand from residents. All the public charge points will be powered by renewable energy.
