Thomas Street Thomas Street was one of four streets north of Edward Street that were demolished in the 1890s for the construction of Blaker Street and White Street. This photo, c1870s, is accompanied in the Royal Pavilion & Museums archive by several lines of verse: “Here half-clad children round the alley run

And roll'd in dust are bronzed beneath the sun; Here hungry dogs from hungry urchins steal; Here pigs and chickens quarrel for a meal;

Here sicklied infants wail without redress,

And all is want, and woe, and wretchedness."

Q

Meet the CEO of St John’s School and College...

Local Person...Simon Charleton Simon Charleton lives in the St Luke’s area. He is the Chief Executive Officer of St John’s School and College in Walpole Road and is also a magistrate. How long have you lived in the Queen’s Park area? 22 years – before that I lived just off the Lewes Road. What did you do before you joined St John’s College?

I was a Headteacher and Senior Leader in special schools in Sussex and worked for East Sussex monitoring special school provision. Back in the 1990s I was also a City Councillor for Queen’s Park. Tell us more about St John’s College...

St John’s College is a Further Education College for young adults who also have autism or a related condition. Our base is in Walpole Road and we have a number of other sites across the city (including one in Queen’s Park) and across Sussex where we provide residential accommodation for our students and also a school in Seaford. We are lucky also to have great links with St Luke’s Church where our young adults do creative writing and experience the wonderful spiritual atmosphere of the church. We published a fascinating history of the College last year (ISBN 9781 – 78442 – 347 – 6) which will interest anyone with an interest in local history as we go right back to the 19th century. We are also lucky to recruit staff from Queen’s Park and the surrounding area and often have posts available. We are so lucky to have the park on our doorstep and almost every day some of our young adults will be over there enjoying the open air and relaxing.

As well as providing education, care and therapy for young people and adults with autism we also provide training for others working in this field.

I also chair the St Luke’s Residents’ Association ( @ StResidents ) which campaigns to improve the quality of the St Luke’s area: such things as graffiti, parking, recycling etc. What sort of cases do you deal with as a magistrate?

A very diverse range of cases from traffic offences to crimes related to drug and alcohol issues to assaults. More serious cases get referred by magistrates on to the Crown Court. Sometimes we may have to issue warrants for the police to conduct searches of houses and once I had to sign off a person who had been through the process of gender reassignment which was a very emotional and moving moment for the person involved and for the Bench and I felt privileged to play a small role in such an important moment in this person’s life. What do you like to do when you’re not working?

01273 272 752 07554 750 499 www.lewisbyardplastering.co.uk

Spending time with my family and our dog Hugo who is a very silly and loveable cockerpoo. I love walking on Whitehawk Hill and looking west across the city to the Isle of Wight. I am also a season-ticket holder at the Amex and have been supporting the Albion since my dad took me to the Goldstone in the late 1960s.

New business...

Q

We're talking to Mark Dalton of lookafteryourdog.co.uk.

New business comes to Brighton If you love dogs read on... Mark, I hear you’re bringing a new business to Brighton that will interest pet owners and particularly dog lovers. Tell us more. Yes, my brother has been running a successful dog boarding business in the Midlands for some years. Living locally, I know there are so many dog owners around Brighton & Hove who want to lead a more flexible life and need a trusted home for their precious pet while they’re away. Does that mean you will be looking for people to host these dogs in their own homes? Yes, we are keen to hear from people who have a secure home with space, and most importantly, love dogs. What sort of person would fit the bill? You may be retired or working from home, and you may already have a sociable or good natured dog who would enjoy the company. Pet lovers who’ve had a dog in the past often, in our experience, enjoy the chance to host a dog on a flexible basis.

What would potential home boarders need to do? Firstly, get in touch with us and we can answer your questions. Depending on how many dogs you look after, you may need a licence. We are experienced in working with the Councils and will guide all dog boarders through the regulatory process. The website and contact details are below and you are free to call any time with questions

partner Suzy live in Brighton and are dedicating ourselves to building up the business in Sussex. We also plan to add dog walking and home visits for cat feeding in the future. Thanks and good luck with the venture. www.lookafteryourdog.co.uk Steve: 07814 245595 or Steve@lookafteryourdog.co.uk Mark: 07985 087771 or Mark@lookafteryourdog.co.uk

A two-day showcase at the Brighton Waldorf School in Roedean Road...

Brighton Waldorf School Showcase... Helping to create and nurture inspiring futures is the message from the Brighton Waldorf School as it opens its doors to prospective parents and pupils at its inaugural two-day Showcase of Pupil Performance and Academic Achievements on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th January between 1pm and 4pm. Following the success of this year’s great GCSE results and recognition for the positive Ofsted improvements, the school is hosting the interactive Showcase to give pupils and staff a platform to demonstrate, exhibit and celebrate the strong improvements, new classes, initiatives and creative channels that have grown and excelled over the last year. School Director Damian Mooncie said: “The Showcase will be a mix of original pupil performances of poems, songs and drama, plus Curriculum Exhibitions alongside bookable ‘live’ Classroom Tours. We believe the event will be the perfect way for the school - its teachers and pupils - to share their Waldorf education experiences and give visitors an opportunity to see the flow of intellectual and creative stimulation and enrichment within our school and its curriculum.” Each day Damian will be delivering a ‘Discover Waldorf Education’ Talk and Q&A session. There will also be two special performances at the end of each day - The Crucible (Thursday) and A Christmas Carol (Friday). Damian added: “Through the Showcase, we hope visitors, prospective parents and pupils see how happy, enthusiastic

and animated our pupils are at sharing their school experiences and educational journeys - and at showing their school and talents at their absolute best.” To find out more about The Brighton Waldorf School, get more details on the Showcase and its activities, to book on to a ‘live’ Classroom Tour during the Showcase or to arrange a general visit, please contact: The Reception Team on tel: 01273 386300, visit www.brightonwaldorfschool.org/ contact-us or email: enquiries@brightonwaldorfschool.org

A group for all cardiac patients…

Cardiac Patient Involvement Group We are a group of patients who have had experience of the Cardiac Centre – either as an in-patient or an out-patient, either cardiology or cardiac surgery. New members will be very welcome.

• Provide an opportunity for staff working in the Cardiac Centre to hear patients’ views, for example reviewing patient information and advice on feedback questionnaires and focus groups

• Provide an opportunity where patients can raise issues that are important to them, for example information to patients on waiting lists, privacy and dignity issues What you have to say is important to us and as a result of our discussions we can make changes to benefit other patients.

An update on the council’s policy on the use of glyphosate...

Council to continue with manual weeding Brighton & Hove City Council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee has agreed to end the use of glyphosate by its Environmental Management services with immediate effect, other than in exceptional cases to kill invasive plant species such as Japanese knotweed or to kill tree stumps.

Glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup, is the world’s most widely sold weed killer, but many experts believe it causes cancer in humans while destroying the environment and wildlife.

The removal of weeds in parks and on hard surfaces will instead be undertaken manually. An additional six staff will be employed during the growing season and information from a trial in 2019 will mean that weed removal will be better planned in 2020. The committee will review this approach in autumn 2020 and a survey will be done to seek the views of residents. Cllr Pete West commented that the Green Party had been calling for this policy for a number of years. However, he thought it was important that pavements remained weed-free to avoid trip hazards, so it was sensible to keep the new technique under review.

One concert at St Luke’s Church this month…

Happy New Year from the Hanover Queens

We welcome in the New Year on Thursday 9th January with our always popular Quiz with Trish. Come and join us if you’d like to – 7.30 to 9.30pm at the Church of the Annunciation, 89 Washington Street, BN2 9SR. New faces and hopefully new members always very welcome.

We've recently had fun with Christmas events at both the Annunciation Church and Elm Grove School helping out and then raising funds for Small Acts of Friendship. A group of us had a fascinating and informative tour of the historic Supreme Court in November. Lots learnt about the development and interpretation of the law and how decisions made help shape our society and everyday lives. More trips to come we hope this year. And our new programme is looking good! Find us on Facebook or contact us at wihanoverqueens@gmail.com. Supreme Court

Music and Wine at St Luke’s On Friday January 24th we welcome the Cello Duo: Pavlos Carvalho and Sarah Carvalho-Dubost. Both chamber musicians and soloists in their own right, Pavlos Carvalho and Sarah Carvalho-Dubost come together for this concert celebrating passion for the soulfulness of the cello.

Tonight’s concert is a celebration of the cello in all its wonderful, warm, glowing glory. From the profound solo suites of Bach, to the contemporary explorations of local composer Barry Mills, with 19th century romanticism of Kummer and the charm and virtuosity of the French school of cello playing through JeanBaptiste Barrière’s sonata. The concert takes place at St Luke’s Church, Queen’s Park Road, Brighton BN2 9ZB at 7.30pm. Tickets £7 / £5 under-25s / under-16s free. Disabled access. Wine and refreshments served.

Q

A writing competition for children and young people…

“If I don’t speak, who will?” Alfred Huberman

Holocaust Memorial Day, 27th January 2020, marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. Brighton & Hove resident for 65 years and Holocaust survivor Alfred Huberman dedicated his life to bearing witness to the Holocaust in the hope that his own harrowing story would help future generations learn from the lessons of the past, and to show how genocide is a process which starts with hatred, prejudice and discrimination.

Hailing from a close-knit Polish-Jewish family of over 50 members, only Alfred and one sister survived the concentration camps. One of the child Holocaust survivors brought to Britain at the end of the war, by 1946 he was living in Hove. He worked as a master tailor in Brighton, married a local girl and had three children. Alfred died in 2011, but his legacy is The Alfred Huberman Award to encourage young people to learn the lessons of the Holocaust and to ensure

Unattached? Aged 50+?

that its horrors should never be forgotten.
