Meet a local resident who wants to improve our seafront...

LOCAL PERSON... EDWARD CLAY Edward Clay lives in Berriedale Avenue. He is Chair of the West Hove Forum and Vice Chair of the new West Hove Seafront Action Group. How long have you lived in West Hove? I’ve lived in Berriedale Avenue since 1981; yes 38 years! What is your background? After studying economics at university, I spent eight years in India, Papua New Guinea and Bangladesh investigating agricultural development, food security and disaster risk issues. I then advised many international agencies and governments on5food aid policy, as well as researched and taught at the Institute of Development Studies at Sussex University in the 1980s. I later became Director of the Relief and Development Institute London, which is now part of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI). How did the new West Hove Seafront Action Group come about? Councillor Tom Bewick and I thought there was a need to provide more facilities along the seafront because we were losing them elsewhere in West Hove. We realised


Doors and Conservatories

the best way to do this was to get the local community groups and businesses to come together. Like the West Hove Forum, it is bringing the different voices together. A community voice like this is much better able to have a say on how public funds are used. The West Hove Forum brings together many different groups, representing more than 20,000 people in Wish and Westbourne wards, e.g. park ‘friends’, residents’ associations and local businesses. What improvements along the seafront would you personally like to see? Firstly, better access for disabled and frail residents. Secondly, more play and sports facilities for children and young people. There are some sports facilities which were put there 70 years ago after World War Two, like tennis courts and pitch and putt, which are increasingly neglected and have problems with maintenance. The community has changed – there are now more families with children and people living in flats along the seafront. West Hove seafront and lawns are also the nearest bit of the seafront for many people from Hove and Portslade, so they come here rather than going to central Brighton.

Factory & Showroom: Units 4, 5 and 6, Southern Cross Industrial Estate, Freemans Road, Portslade. BN41 1GS

What do you like to do to relax? I go walking and hiking, watch birds, listen to music, enjoy painting and drawing, for example charcoal drawings of trees in our garden, and especially time spent with our three grandchildren. If you have ideas for improvements along the West Hove seafront and lawns, email

KINGSWAY Building of the Hartley & Midgley garage on Kingsway, in 1922. This spot (to the west of what is now Saxon Road) was chosen as it was then considered to be out in the country. At this time you could stand on the lower road to Shoreham, as Kingsway was then known, and see across the fields and market gardens to Green’s factory beyond Portland Road.

Local history from Rachel Bridgeman...

“HEY DIDDLE-DERRY, LET’S DANCE ON THE BURY” (Trad. Anon.) What will you be doing over the Easter break? Perhaps sharing a Sunday roast with family; gorging on chocolate Easter eggs; going to church; relaxing in front of the latest boxset series; or even lying on a foreign beach. Whatever you are planning, it is sure to be quite different to the festivities enjoyed by our Hove predecessors. For the impoverished villagers of the old village of Hove (Hou, Houve or Hoove), centred around Hove Street, the traditional Easter Tuesday bull-baiting would have been the highlight of the celebrations. Until 1810, bull-baiting was held in Hove’s iron bull-ring, in what we now often refer to as West Hove.


On Good Friday, you might have strolled eastward along the path through the fields, stopping at a small hillock in the second field out from the parish of Brighton (or Brighthelmstone). Standing 15 to 20 feet high, the mound rose prominently out of the flat coastal plain and is thought to have been the burial site of an ancient British chieftain. Hundreds of young people congregated there,

Bull Baiting in the 19th century by Samuel Henry Alken

linking arms around the barrow to sing and play “kiss-inthe-ring”. This tradition continued on for half a century after the barrow had been flattened to make way for Palmeira Avenue, finally petering out at the beginning of the 20th century. Poets’ Corner residents from the early 20th century recount the tradition of Easter skipping: whole families turned out into the streets to join in the fun using ropes stretched from one pavement to the other, and symbolically using two ropes arranged in the shape of a cross. As many as a dozen children could skip at once whilst chanting Easter rhymes. To learn more about the history of Hove, join a guided walking tour led by a local historian and tour guide. Hove Actually Walking Tours are fun, informative, informal and best suited to the incurably curious. To receive the Spring 2019 programme, email Will include NEW tours: Hidden Hove - the ancient village through the ages; Cliftonville - a Victorian Gem; and A Country of Two Nations - service, struggle and salvation in Poets’ Corner.

The Brighton Marathon is back on 14th April...

BRIGHTON MARATHON 2019 The tenth Brighton Marathon takes place on Sunday 14th April. Those who finish their 10th Brighton Marathon will be hailed as the ‘10/10’ runners. Events on 14th April begin at 7am with the inaugural BM Ride – the city’s first ever closed-road cycling event, which is 50km long and will start and finish on Hove Lawns. The BM10k begins at 9am and the Brighton Marathon starts at 9.45am from Preston Park, finishing on Madeira Drive. Nigel Sarjudeen of Off The Fence is to run his tenth Brighton Marathon for Martlets. Nigel was inspired to run following unexpected heart problems in 2006 and, 11 after rehabilitation, he joined a local running club. When he gained his place in the 2010 Brighton Marathon Nigel decided to support Martlets, since some of his friends had been supported by the hospice. He said, “I did the first marathon, then the second and after that I just kept on running and now I’m on my tenth!” Some roads in West Hove will be closed between 6am and 4.30pm, including parts of Kingsway, New Church Road, Boundary Road, Seaford Road and St Leonard’s Road. For details, visit travel/road-closures. News from the council...

EASY-TO-USE RECYCLING A-Z Brighton & Hove City Council have launched a new A to Z guide on how you can reduce, reuse, recycle or dispose of almost 180 different materials.

See local reviews of this business at

The guide gives detailed explanations of what to do with everything from aerosols to mattresses and nappies to Tetra Paks, to ensure we’re all being as environmentally friendly as possible. The A to Z also gives advice on what to do with materials like rubble, plasterboards, asbestos, bathroom fittings, furniture, white goods, batteries and metal. The guide launches the council’s new drive to help residents recycle the correct things far more. In turn, this will help reduce the large number of recycling bins contaminated with non-recyclable products, which can lead to them being taken to waste rather than recycled. To use the guide, log onto recycling. Click on the ‘Recycling A to Z’ link and you can then search 179 items alphabetically.

Regular article about local exercise opportunity by West Hove resident Isobel Muir...


LOCAL EXERCISE...TABLE TENNIS Ever since we made our own bats and net at work years ago I’ve been hankering to play proper table tennis, with real bats on a proper table (rather than a very low slung bench). That time is finally here! One of my running club compadres has started a casual ping pong morning every other Thursday at Corals in Hove. The table is in the café area by reception which means those who are minding their own business with newspaper and tea are in danger of getting a ball in the cup/up the trouser leg. They learn pretty quickly though and move to the tables not directly in the vicinity (this doesn’t necessarily help). 13 We started a few months ago and it’s amazing how much we’ve improved in this short time and only playing once every other week. Of course there are still many terrible shots but now we can have long rallies and games that actually go to the wire as opposed to the 11-0s that were prevalent when we started. We’ve taken to playing doubles which I’d have thought would be harder but is actually easier. Except I hate the pressure of ruining it for my team mate. I still never have any idea who is winning and haven’t really got to grips


ACTIVITY WEEKS “My daughter, Helena, aged 11, had an absolutely fantastic time and loved every minute of every day.”


with when to change places with my partner on serves but someone (possibly everyone else) knows what’s going on so I just follow their orders. I have also learnt that wearing the right shoes is important. One week they were too slippery, the next, too grippy. Who knew it could be so difficult? Also my balls were deemed too inferior. This wasn’t too much of a surprise as they were originally purchased for my cat to play with so were the cheapest ones available (sorry, cat). I really enjoy our ping pong sessions. It’s a good group of people, not too competitive, some better than others (all better than me) and I find it therapeutic just batting the ball back and forth for a few hours of a morning. I’m hoping in summer we’ll be able to go outside sometimes to make use of all the free outdoor tables that are dotted all around Brighton & Hove. For more details about my life in exercise please visit my blog “IMFitHove”. Thanks,

This article is by local financial adviser David Lewis...

PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES’ FUTURES Being able to leave your loved ones well provided for when you die is very reassuring for people contemplating their own mortality. It is also comforting to know that if something happened that meant you were unable to work, your expenses would be covered. No one likes to think about these things but being prepared for them means you have the best chance of looking after yourself and your family. Don’t Leave Your Estate to the Taxman Good estate planning can minimise the Inheritance Tax liability you will be leaving your family but also make things easier for them at this difficult time. Everyone is different so the various ways there are to reduce Inheritance Tax will suit some people and not others, so we can help you find the most appropriate solution. Looking After Your Loved Ones If you’re relatively young and healthy, life insurance is an inexpensive way to help look after the people most important to you in the event of your death. There are lots of options out there and we can help you find the most suitable one. Avoid Adding Stress to Serious Illness The last thing you want if you are diagnosed with a serious illness is money worries. Serious illness cover

exists to take that worry away if you find yourself unable to work. Like life insurance, it’s very affordable if you take it out when you are young and in good health. Worrying about what might happen in the future is never a good idea but preparing for it is a great one. If you would like some help putting protections in place for you and your family, call David Lewis Wealth Management on 01273 933743 for a no-obligation consultation.

An update from the churchwardens at St Leonard’s...

NEWS FROM ST LEONARD’S CHURCH St Leonard’s Church is waking up! From 2005 when the first threat of closure came, to 2015 when thousands of people signed a petition to keep it open, to now, in 2019, it has been a long battle …. but the Church of England is soon to publish a scheme which, if there are no objections, will establish St Leonard’s as the sole parish church of Aldrington, restoring it to its pre-2010 position. A new and exciting time awaits the church. St Leonard’s is inviting local people to get involved in two projects – recording the graveyard and caring for it, too. The church has joined The Genealogist’s Headstone Image Database which is seeking to record images and details of every headstone for the use of family historians (and also for church records as well). St Leonard’s is also appealing for anyone interested in looking after the ecology of the churchyard. A recent survey showed an abundance of wildlife, especially butterflies, but if that means the churchyard remains covered in brambles, it also makes it impossible for people

to visit the grave of their loved one, and thus there is a problem. St Leonard’s has been in touch with an organisation called Caring for God’s Acre and, looking at their suggestions, would like to set up a group who can resolve the situation in some way. If you are interested in joining in with either of these projects, please contact Easter Services at St Leonard’s: Please note that sadly there will be no Palm Sunday services on 14th April at St Leonard’s because the Brighton Marathon will be thundering along New Church Road. There will be a Good Friday Service at 3.00pm on 19th April and a communion service at 9.30am on Easter Sunday, 21st April. In the afternoon on Easter Sunday at 3.30pm there will be a short Easter Family Service, followed by our second Egg Rolling Competition. Everyone rolls, not just children! All ages are welcome to join in – the oldest champion from last year is in her 80s, the youngest 6 years old – and there are prizes, too! To take part, simply come along with a decorated egg and, of course, please make sure it’s hard-boiled!! Do join us for this free fun event.  WHD April 2019

Congratulations to Amber...!

EUROPEAN SILVER MEDAL FOR AMBER ANNING West Hove athlete Amber Anning has won a silver medal for Great Britain in the 400m relay in her first senior competition at the age of 18. Amber was the youngest athlete selected to compete for Team GB at the European Athletics Indoor Championships in Glasgow, which were held over the first weekend of March. She narrowly missed a semi-final place in the individual 400m but her gutsy run drew praise from Olympic legend and BBC commentator Michael Johnson, who said: “A young athlete not afraid to go out and run from the front indoors is exactly what you want. It shows a tremendous amount of confidence and potential.” Amber later ran the third leg of the 4x400m relay final with Laviai Nielsen, Zoey Clark and Eilidh Doyle. The team came in second behind Poland. We asked Amber how it felt to win her first senior medal. She told us: “It is amazing. The team ran really well.

We always knew it would be a tough race, but we kept our cool and stuck with the plan and it paid off. It was such an honour to represent Britain and achieve this success.” The teenager also holds the UK under-20 women’s indoor record for 400m, with a time of 53 seconds dead. She broke the previous record, which had stood for 49 years, when she won a silver medal at the British Indoor Championships in February. Lloyd Cowan, who guided Christine Ohuruogu to Olympic and World titles, coaches Amber. Amber attended Hove Junior School and is now studying for her A-levels at BHASVIC. She hopes to compete in the European Athletics Under-20 Championships in Sweden this summer before continuing her education and track and field ambitions at an American university.

Nathalie’s monthly health tip...

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU OVERDO IT... With Easter chocolate temptations around the corner, here are some simple tricks to avoid feeling ”bad” after overindulging. Everybody overeats at times; that’s normal. The difference is that, for some, an episode of overeating sets off a chain reaction: “I already blew it; I might as well keep eating and restart my diet tomorrow.” Increasing awareness around your overeating can change a potentially negative experience into a learning opportunity. Notice how you feel. Sit for a while and become aware of your body. Focus on the sensations so you’ll remember them the next time you’re tempted to 29 overeat. You may be less likely to repeat the mistake if you remind yourself how it feels to overeat. (Kind of takes the fun out of it, doesn’t it!) Don’t beat yourself up. Overeating doesn’t mean you were “bad”. It’s only a choice you made at that time – not ”who” you are. Turn your “mistake” into a learning experience. Ask yourself, “Why did it happen?” and “What could I do differently next time?” “It was a special occasion.” You don’t need an excuse to have a wonderful meal – have a treat meal a week, where you indulge in delicious, gorgeous food.

When you get hungry again, notice what you feel like eating. As you become more mindful, you may naturally seek balance, fresh food and moderation. Finally, don’t use exercise to punish yourself for overeating. Just be consistently active and enjoy moving more. Happy, Healthy Easter! Nathalie x Nathalie Sansonetti. Nutrition & Health Coach and Speaker. “Helping people stressed about chronic health issues regain their energy & vitality so they can live their ultimate life – without pills or diets.”

NEW CHURCH ROAD SYNAGOGUE PLANS APPROVED On 20th March Brighton & Hove City Council’s Planning Committee approved plans for the redevelopment of the synagogue at 29-31 New Church Road. Brighton & Hove Hebrew Congregation submitted proposals last year for a mixed use development comprising a central single-storey synagogue and buildings of four, five and six storeys for a replacement children’s nursery, a social hall, two classrooms, office space, a community café, an underground car park, 35 flats and a terrace of 10 houses to the rear. N



The city’s Jewish population has fallen in recent years and the existing buildings on the site are becoming increasingly costly to maintain. The developers said in their Planning Statement: “This development is aimed at retaining and attracting young families to the area to 33 secure the future of the Jewish community in the city.” The funding for the development will be made available by the Bloom Foundation. More than 1,000 comments were received by the council, including 723 letters of objection – many from the synagogue’s neighbours who were concerned about the size of the buildings, as well as overlooking and overshadowing. However there were also 440 comments of support, saying that the development was a good design, would be an asset to the local community and would provide much needed housing.

The council’s Arboricultural Team objected to the application, saying it would result in considerable damage to the roots of a number of prominent protected trees and would threaten the retention of these and many other trees. Council planning officers recommended that the scheme be approved. One of the conditions is £149,000 in developer contributions towards local open spaces and indoor sports provision, and £91,000 towards local secondary schools. Tony Bloom, owner of Brighton & Hove Albion, told the planning committee that three years ago the New Church Road site had been on the verge of being sold to a local developer. The Bloom Foundation had stepped in with an alternative and wanted to revitalise Jewish life in the city. He said the scheme would bring numerous benefits, including a £1.3 million contribution to the local economy. Westbourne ward councillor Denise Cobb urged the planning committee to reject the scheme. She said that in her 20 years on the council she had never seen a scheme with such deep opposition from the local community. Some councillors on the committee were concerned about the large amount of housing being fitted onto a small site, the height of the scheme and the loss of trees; however, the committee voted by seven votes to five in favour of the development.

News of this year’s City Reads book...

“LET ME BE LIKE WATER” BY S.K. PERRY City Reads is an annual citywide reading festival, when one book is selected for everyone to read. This year it runs from 23rd April to 12th May as part of the Brighton Festival and the chosen title is “Let Me Be Like Water” by S.K. Perry, who at 29 years old is the youngest writer ever chosen. Sarah Perry was born in Croydon in 1990. “Let Me Be Like Water” was published in hardback in 2018. She currently lives in Leeds and is working on her second novel. She said: “I have a deep love for Brighton and Hove and feel really moved that, through City Reads, “Let Me Be Like Water” will reach more of the city’s readers. It’s such an honour, and I really can’t wait!” In the book, songwriter Holly is in a state of limbo, 35 having impulsively escaped to Brighton following the death of her boyfriend Sam. The solitude she had so craved in London leaves her feeling stranded and alone in her grief. It is when she meets Frank, a retired gay magician, that the tide begins to turn. Frank has experienced his own heartbreak and offers Holly companionship and solace. Gradually, as she is introduced to his eclectic group of friends, all with their own stories, she starts to heal. “Let Me Be Like Water” is a book simultaneously

Looking for a care home and need some friendly expert advice? Put your trust in us to help you. We understand that choosing the right care home can be an overwhelming and emotional experience. But rest assured we are here to help. Come and take a look around and get some guidance on those things that are concerning you. It’s the best way to feel more confident about your next steps.

about nothing and everything: about the humdrum yet extraordinariness of everyday life; of lost and new connections; of loneliness and friendship. Sarah Hutchings, the Director of City Reads, said: “Let Me Be Like Water” is an exquisite, lyrical meditation on grief and romantic loss. As soon as I started reading it I was struck by the grace and strength of Sarah’s writing. She writes about Brighton with heart and passion, using the city’s glorious imperfections to remind us all why we are drawn here. It was a joy to read.” You can see S.K. Perry live at the Brighton Festival in conversation with writer Bridget Minamore (Sunday 12 May, Brighton & Hove High School, 5.30pm, £8, tickets from Other highlights of the 2019 City Reads programme include The City Reads Book Quiz (25 April), New Writing South/Waterstones event (30 April), Literary Salon (2 May) and City Reads Supper Club (8 May).

This article is by local practice nurses Jo Ilott and Sarah Leroux...

DID SOMEONE SAY MENOPAUSE? A woman’s home and work life can be disturbed due to the many symptoms that can accompany menopause including hot flushes, insomnia, memory loss and anxiety. This often results in feelings of inadequacy and low self esteem. On average a woman will spend nearly a third of her life being post-menopausal and the average length of time when women experience symptoms is four years, with some still having symptoms after ten years. It can have a significant impact on home life and attendance at work with some women being misdiagnosed with suffering from mental ill health or other conditions. In a survey carried out by the British Menopause37 Society in 2017 of 1,000 men and women, 50% of women said their menopause symptoms had affected their home life and 50% of women age 45-65 who have experienced the menopause in the last 10 years did not consult a health care professional about their symptoms. And finally, an estimated 47% of women who have needed to take a day off work due to menopause symptoms say they didn’t tell their employer the real reason. These statistics demonstrate a real need to break down the stigma surrounding the menopause and open up

dialogue between women, employers and health care professionals so women feel supported and understood during this time and can then take positive steps to feeling well again both physically and emotionally. We are qualified nurses who have taken a specialist interest in the menopause because we recognise a need for more widely available, evidence-based information for women to make informed choices during the menopause. We provide short talks/workshops to small groups and places of work with information on all aspects of the menopause, including signs and symptoms, health, wellbeing, hormonal and non-hormonal treatments to promote optimal health both at home and in the workplace. Visit our Facebook page ‘Did someone say menopause?’ or email to find out more or to book a meeting.

This mobile farm shop now visits West Hove...

THE SUSSEX PEASANT AT HOVE MUSEUM The Sussex Peasant is a mobile farm shop which visits villages and towns across Sussex for a few hours each week. The shop offers 100% Sussex produce, harvested the day before: seasonal fruit and vegetables; pasture-fed native and traditional breeds of beef, lamb, pork and chicken; locally caught fish; locally produced dairy products; home baked bread, cakes and pastries; jams, chutneys and drinks. The business launched in 2017 and is now in Hove Museum garden (front or back, depending on the weather) in New Church Road on Sundays from 9am to 41 3pm, with a very positive reaction from customers. Ed Johnstone started the business by restoring an old horse truck and converting it into a shop. He told us: “I was disheartened to read that just 1% of food farmed in the home counties remains in the counties to be eaten. I have built a co-operative of sustainable Sussex farmers to supply our customer base with the finest local and seasonal produce. The produce’s provenance is behind everything I do. Our farming is sustainable, our food is traceable, our approach is socially and environmentally minded.”


A Team of local Artisans specialising in handcrafted fitted furniture

Seasonal produce in April includes asparagus, salads, tomatoes, spinach and chard. They do a seasonal Sussex vegetable box, a weekend breakfast box, or a Sunday roast box. Boxes are either delivered or customers can pick them up from the shop on Sundays. For more information, visit News from the Friends of Stoneham Park...
