Q

Welcome to September Queen’s Park Living

It’s time for most people to go back to work or school (although there are some of us who haven’t been away!) There’s plenty going on in September if you do have some free time, though. There are two weekends of Heritage Open Days, the start of the annual Older People’s Festival and giant snails will soon be arriving on our streets, so make the most of the last days of the mild weather.

We have details of free PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) tests for men, organised by the Brighton Lions and the Prostate Cancer Support Organisation – a great opportunity for men to get themselves checked out. You do need to book an appointment though. There’s also news of the latest plans for the former Cuthbert pub. Happy reading!

St Luke’s ChurchHall on 5th May 1972, after it had been damaged by a fire. It was built in 1875 and stood on the west side of Queen’s Park Road, on the corner of Islingword Road. It was originally used as a chapel until St Luke’s Church was built, when it became the church hall.

Local Author – John Enright

John Enright lives in Cuthbert Road and has written seven novels and a play under the pseudonym John Righten. His latest novel “The Alpha Wolves” is published this month. How long have you been a writer?

Seven years. My first novel, Churchill’s Rogue, was short-listed for the inaugural Wilbur Smith Adventure Awards, but for over 20 years I had been taking notes on the characters I met – both good and bad. Tell us about The Alpha Wolves...

The Alpha Wolves is the final novel in The Lochran Trilogy -thrillers set in the 1960s. The premise is, “why kill a man, who the world knows is dying”, as an attempt is made to kill Sir Winston Churchill, in his final months. Lochran Ryan thwarted the assassins, but endangered himself, and his family. Have you got any more books planned?

I have written two trilogies -the 1930s adventurebased epic, The Rogues Trilogy, is centred on men and women trying to help Jewish families flee Nazi assassins, Alpha Wolves, on the eve of WWII.

The second trilogy, The Lochran Trilogy, is a complex crimethriller. My next novel, In Harm’s Way, will be the first in The Lenka Trilogy, set in the 1990s, when the lead character, a young teacher, Lenka, leads medical convoys into war-torn Bosnia. We hear you’ve had some dangerous adventures across the world...

One, maybe two. I’m one of the rare few to finish the Enduro motorbike endurance rally across India, which raised money for UNICEF. I’ve organised, led, or been part of 17 medical convoys delivering medical supplies across the world, mainly into war zones.

Write. It’s a joy; each novel offers a new opportunity to research and, hopefully, learn a little more about the world. For example, The Alpha Wolves is far more than a fast-paced thriller, as it gave me the opportunity to research a revolutionary decade that advanced gay and civil rights, the fight for sexual equality, as well as the Cold War. All are integral to the story.

Look out for a snail near you...

Snailspace arrives... 50 giant snails, individually decorated by different artists, and over 50 junior snails painted by local schoolchildren, will be located all over the city, sponsored by local businesses.

#BeMoreSnail is the motto of Snailspace, which is being organised by Martlets Hospice in conjunction with Wild in Art. The idea behind #BeMoreSnail is to encourage people to slow down, enjoy the moment and spend more time with the people they love. It resonates with the philosophy behind the lifechanging care provided by the hospice, and, at the end of the event, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for it. The event has the backing of some of the city’s celebrities, including DJ Norman Cook, crime author Peter James and vlogger Alfie Deyes, who will have their own giant snails on the route.

A comprehensive map and an interactive app will also support the sculpture hunt. The map will be available

on the Snailspace website, at Martlets shops across the city and at Churchill Square.

Snails will be placed at some of the locations used for the Snowdogs and a few new locations have been added – all will be revealed on 15th September! For more information and to keep up to date with all details of the campaign, visit www.snailspacebrighton.co.uk or follow @snailspacebh on social media.

The second half is Dvorak’s Dumky Trio, a colourful piece suffused with the warmth of folk melody from his native Czechoslovakia. On Friday 28th September Brighton-based Japanese pianist Yoko Ono (yes that’s her real name!) will commemorate the centenary of Debussy’s death, with a complete performance of his Preludes Book 1. She will start the concert with Mozart’s Sonata in E flat major, K. 282, Chopin’s ‘Minute Waltz’, Nocturne in E flat major, Op.9 no.2, Grieg’s Nocturne Op.54 no.4 and ‘Wedding Day at Troldhaugen’ Op.65 No.6.

A chance for men to get themselves checked out...

Free PSA Tests

One in every two men will have a health problem with their prostate at some stage of their lives and one in every eight men will develop prostate cancer. PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is a simple blood test that measures the amount of antigen, produced by the prostate, entering the blood. It is not a direct test for cancer; a moderately raised reading can be an indicator of a prostate problem, a high reading should trigger further tests to determine if there is a need for any treatment. Some clinicians believe all men over 50 should know their PSA and have regular yearly tests. Prostate cancer is now the leading cancer found in men. Caught in the early stages, cure rates are dramatically improved. General symptoms of problems with the prostate are frequent need to urinate especially at night; bursting to urinate, slow flow, difficult, painful; stop/start and dribbling, or blood in the urine.

The Prostate Cancer Support Organisation (PCaSO) are planning an all-day free test event in Hove in partnership with the Brighton Lions, who are funding the event, for men aged between 45 and 80 at:

Bishop Hannington Church, Nevill Avenue, on Saturday 29th September 2018 The testing will be conducted by trained phlebotomists taking blood from a vein in the arm; this will be analysed at a hospital laboratory and the result posted to men within 7 to 10 days. It is essential to BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TIME phone: 01273 587357 or email: brightonlions.psatests@gmail.com

‘OFSTED OUTSTANDING’ 2014

Proposals have been submitted to Brighton & Hove City Council by Godfrey Investments to convert the former Cuthbert pub, on the corner of Cuthbert Road and Freshfield Road, into a café and office space, with a new extension containing three twobedroom apartments. Planning permission has previously been refused for three new houses on the site and the pub has been listed as an asset of community value (ACV) by community campaigners.

The developers’ planning statement says: “The site offers a fantastic opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the local area through the provision of a significant amount of much needed office space to support local businesses. The community café at the heart of the scheme will provide a focal point for local residents / workers and is supplemented by three two-bedroom flats with a shared external amenity space to the rear of the site.” For further details of the planning application, look for application BH2018/02114 on the council’s planning register at planningapps. brighton-hove.gov.uk.

Community Consultation on City Plan Part 2 Communities across Brighton & Hove now have a further opportunity to comment on the second part of the city’s local development plan. City Plan Part 2 will sit alongside the adopted City Plan Part 1 to support the provision of more new low-cost homes, local jobs and transport, and health facilities over the next decade. Take part in the consultation online at www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/cityplan-part2

City Plan Part 2 focuses on good management of development and ensuring good design, high quality and sustainable development. Its housing policies propose tougher controls on houses of multiple occupation (HMOs). The Plan ensures well designed, purpose-built student accommodation and identifies two further sites where it can be built.

A total of 85% of housing sites will come forward on brownfield sites and some urban fringe sites have been identified to provide a positive opportunity to build family and affordable homes, as well as create improved and publicly accessible open space. Most of the urban fringe will however be protected as green space and there will be four new local green spaces. Encouraging new and safeguarding community facilities is also at the heart of City Plan Part 2. A new policy will help protect public houses as community

benefit. Important shopping parades that provide people with access to facilities like newsagents and pharmacies within walking distance of home are recognised.

City Plan Part 2 identifies sites for 3,611 new homes to help meet the city’s housing target. When adopted, it will become part of the formal decision-making process of deciding planning applications. The consultation is open until 13 September.

A local group who have been raising money for charity for over 100 years...

Rotary Club of Brighton

When we recently took a stall at the Rottingdean Village Fair which, this year, commemorated the outbreak of the First World War, we discovered that our club was possibly the only organisation present which would have been in existence at that time. We were founded in 1913 and chartered in 1917 which makes us one of the oldest Rotary Clubs in the UK and we are the oldest of the four Brighton Rotary Clubs, some of which are daughter clubs of ours.

The Rotary Club Young Citizens Awards

Several people asked us about Rotary and some told us what they thought Rotary is. The following is an attempt to correct misconceptions: Rotary is NOT... A secret society A branch of Freemasonry A political or religious organization. We do not just collect money for our administration (everything we collect goes out to charities - our subscriptions cover any overheads). WE ARE... part of a worldwide organisation of over 1.2 million people in 33,000 clubs. Members provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build good will and peace in the world. The Rotary motto is “Service above Self”.

What do we do? As a club we organise events for members and friends and the wider community (eg quiz nights, race nights and occasional outings). We have our annual Santa “Round the Houses” which we have done for 40 years which raises revenue to go to charities. We run youth events such as Young Citizen and Youth Speaks. We sponsor students on gap years, give donations to local charities and to schools and

also host students from overseas who are studying here on Rotary Scholarships. In the same way, UK students are hosted by overseas Rotary Clubs when studying abroad. Recently we have raised money for: the Air Ambulance, Chailey Heritage, Patcham High School, St Mark’s School, medical students doing an elective, the Royal Sussex County Hospital (which we have been supporting for 100 years!), schools overseas where we have a local connection, and for disaster relief. So this is the Rotary Club of Brighton, founded by five local businessmen with vision over 100 years ago and serving the community ever since.

However, Rotary is not all about good works. Friendship and fellowship are important too. We meet on a Wednesday lunchtime (12.30pm) at the Royal Albion Hotel in Brighton and there is an additional meeting on the first Monday of the month at 6pm in their verandah. We are always happy to welcome new members and if you would like to find out more about us then visit us at the Royal Albion or see our homepage: www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/homepage. php?ClubID=1439
