Meet a West Hove resident who is a professional speaker...

LOCAL PERSON... JONATHAN BRADSHAW Jonathan Bradshaw lives in Lawrence Road. He is a professional speaker who presents talks all over the world on Meetology, the psychology behind superb social skills. How long have you lived in West Hove? It’s been almost 30 years now. Like many Hove residents, I moved here to study and attended the old Brighton Polytechnic at Falmer. What do you like about the area? In short, the fact that everything is accessible. I spend half the year in the US and doing so makes me 5 appreciate the fact that it is just a short walk to get a coffee, do some shopping or go to the gym here. (Although this hasn’t always been possible – the way the area has evolved is incredible.) How did you become a professional speaker? The honest answer is by being very poor at it until I gradually improved! Initially I started to speak in public as part of my first job in 1993 but it actually wasn’t until 2007 that I felt ready to leave full-time employment and make speaking my career.


Doors and Conservatories

People often ask for tips on how they can become better at speaking in front of large groups and my usual answer relates to acceptance. Accept (and embrace) the nerves that can occur when starting out as, in my experience, these feelings diminish the more you expose yourself to them. I’ve spoken on Meetology in over 30 countries and I still get nervous – I just call it ‘excitement’ and know that it is an essential part of me performing at my best. What is your top tip for connecting with other people? Am I allowed three? Highlight similarities: Psychological research doesn’t generally support the idea that opposites attract. We like people who are like us - highlight similarities to others where possible. Show vulnerability: In a world that seems obsessed with being ‘perfect’, research suggests that actually accepting and admitting weakness can improve levels of empathy.

Take another perspective: We can only interpret the world through our own experience. Other people’s experiences may differ – try to be flexible and take alternative perspectives into consideration. What do you like to do to relax? Football has been a big part of my life. As well as a season ticket holder at the AMEX for many years, I’m lucky enough to have played for many of Sussex’s senior sides. I enjoy road cycling and hiking too – climbs on Mt Everest and Kilimanjaro are two highlights. For more information, visit

Local history from Rachel Bridgeman…

UNFORGETTABLE CHILDHOOD SUMMER MEMORIES With the arrival of the first month of summer, we are looking forward to warm days, long evenings and all that makes living here so special - children will be heading for the beach after school; teenagers migrating to Hove Lawns after dusk; and families queuing for ice-creams. © The Regency Society’s James Gray Collection

79 years ago, just as local children were anticipating summery days, their plans would be dramatically changed - for 11-year old Bernard Lynn and his chums this would mean not stepping onto the beach again for the rest of their childhood: in June 1940, within a matter of days of the Dunkirk evacuation and Churchill’s 9 promise to fight “on the beaches …the landing grounds …and in the streets..”, Hove seafront was designated a restricted area. 90-year-old Bernard has kindly shared some of his memories with us: “The esplanade was covered in barbed wire and there were warning signs about the mines on the beaches. Of course, there were the tank traps – great big concrete blocks – to prevent tanks coming onto the promenade. There were gun emplacements all along there, sandbag enclosures with 40mm Bofor guns, presumably manned by the Canadians - because The seafront near Hove Lagoon c1944/45 when the wire and obstacles were being dismantled

they were all over the place. We couldn’t get on the lawns or the esplanade. We just accepted it: it was how it was in war-time. “When the big guns in West Blatchington fired, you certainly knew all about it - the sound was earsplitting! I used to hear it quite often when I was in bed. As kids we were worried that there might be an invasion and could imagine boats surging in from the horizon. I do recall one night a lot of guns firing from out at sea and I am pretty certain that it was a convoy being attacked by U-boats, although it was never mentioned, for security reasons.” To find out more about the local history of Hove, come on a guided walking tour led by a local historian and tour guide.

Two new displays at Hove Museum in New Church Road...

PATRICK BURKE RETROSPECTIVE 11 May to 4 September 2019, Hove Museum Free admission Patrick Burke (1932-2010) was a Shoreham-born painter and writer who gained success in London, Rome and New York. His mother was a single woman working as a domestic servant in Hove. He attended Varndean School and studied at Brighton College of Art (which became part of Brighton Polytechnic), where he later taught for many years. The works from the height of his career are alive with colour, inspired by the time he spent in Italy. After retirement, he lived in a flat in Brunswick Square and regularly painted local scenes including a series of promenade paintings, packed with bizarre 13 characters dancing on the prom with a ship on the sea in the distance. This display shows the range of his work including early etchings and sketches of Brighton life, paintings, sketchbooks, notebooks and diaries.

FRIEDRICH NAGLER...A PERSONAL MYTHOLOGY 13 June to 17 September 2019, Hove Museum Free admission

Friedrich Nagler, assemblage of metal sculptures; photo by Oana Damir

Friedrich Nagler (1920-2009) was a Jewish émigré and selftaught artist born in Vienna, Austria. He fled to England to escape Nazi occupation in 1938 but was interned and sent to Canada as an ‘enemy alien’, where he worked as a lumberjack. In 1943 he returned to England, married an English girl and settled in Hampshire. He had a variety of low-paid labouring jobs to earn a living while he developed his passion for making art. This display shows some of the many thousands of pieces he created, some of which were inspired by his flight from Nazioccupied Austria to England. It forms part of the year-long nationwide Insiders/Outsiders arts festival which celebrates the contribution of Jewish refugees to British culture. For more information visit

ADVICE FOR BUSINESS... People in business can often get very caught up in day to day operations and forget to plan for the future but there are some measures you can take to help make your hard work pay off. By planning for your future prosperity, finding the most appropriate company pension scheme and putting protections in place you can help secure your, and your business’s, future. Most employers know they need to offer a workplace pension to their staff but it isn’t always obvious which pension scheme will suit the business, employees and the owners so it is worth shopping around and establishing which scheme would work best for you. Tax is always a concern for business owners. By performing business liability audits, advice can be given to minimise your tax liability while you’re in business, after you retire and when your estate is passed on to your family. It’s something we don’t like to think about but if your business would struggle if a key member of staff were to die or go off sick long term, it is a good idea to have protections and plans in place. Similarly, if a shareholder passing away would create a difficult situation for the remaining shareholders, it is worth having a way to deal with it ready.

When the time comes for you to leave your business, it’s a good idea to have an exit strategy planned out to minimise tax and make it simple for the business to continue in the hands of shareholders or family members if required. To speak to us at David Lewis Wealth Management about any of these matters to support your and your business’s future, call 01273 933743 for a no-obligation consultation.

A great event to raise money for good causes...

BRIGHTON LIONS SUMMER FAYRE Brighton Lions Club is a charitable organisation that is part of Lions Clubs International, which has 1.7 million members in 190 countries.

Daniel from Gogglebox. Coastway Vets are sponsoring and organising a dog show which will run in one arena throughout the afternoon. In the other arena, there will be dancing and sports displays and family races. Attractions include children’s rides and amusements, games, over 30 stalls ranging from perfumes to crafts to fruit and veg, music with the Maestro Big Band, a beer tent, hot and cold food, tombola and raffle. Brighton is the second oldest Lions Club in Great Britain and Ireland, having been chartered in January 1951, and our running costs, like those of all other Lions Clubs, are met by subscriptions paid by the members, so all monies raised from the public and events like the Summer Fayre and our Fireworks Display at Brighton Racecourse in November are used for charitable purposes. As members of a community service club, we are dedicated to the idea that the men and women who live in a community are in the best position to know who needs help and why. We are proud to be more than a “cheque-writing” organisation. Whether that means raising money or rolling up our sleeves, we do it all in our own time and we like to have fun doing it. Lions are ordinary people who do extraordinary things to help others and support good causes. New members are always welcome. If you feel you have the time to help organise activities to support those in need in the community, then why not contact us on 0845 833 5765, email or on Facebook @ LionsClubBrighton.  WHD June 2019

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


LOCAL EXERCISE...CXWORX The core is the most important part of your body. It keeps you stable and upright and without it everyday life would be impossible yet often it is missed out. I am definitely someone who has been neglecting my core. Other than throwing in the odd plank or sit-up now and again or doing the few minutes’ worth that is included in BODYPUMP and vibe classes, I don’t do any. Then I discovered CXWORX! This is another Les Mills class from the same school as BODYPUMP so I had an idea of how it would work before I set off to The Circle (North Street, Portslade) for my first class. CXWORX is based on functionality: mimicking natural movements rather than focusing on one muscle group and solely working on it as you might in other classes. Of course there were the usual things like sit-ups and the plank but also lots of movements using resistance bands. I was utterly useless at most of the moves. The changeovers were very fast and I found it difficult to even get the resistance band round my foot before it was time to move on to the next exercise. There was also a lot of shoulder involved and my shoulders are my greatest weakness so this added a further dimension of work to the process. I found the class very hard, not least

because of the quickness of the changeovers and the complexity of some of the moves. However, I feel that the harder the class the more it proves that I need to do that sort of exercise, which means I REALLY need to do more core work. The class is only 30 minutes long but that’s plenty as you’re focusing solely on the core. Also, at The Circle, there is a Pure Abs class straight afterwards (if you do the Friday CXWORX) that is also half an hour, which focuses on the more traditional exercises like sit-ups and planking and dispenses with the resistance band so you could get in a full hour of core if the fancy took you (it didn’t me). I could already feel the difference after only one CXWORX class so I’ll have a core of steel after a month or so. This class is definitely one to persevere with as to start with it is hard to follow the moves and quick changes, but it’s worth it to know that you’re saving your posture, making everyday life easier and more comfortable and avoiding a bad back and other injuries stemming from a weak core and bad posture.

News from Brighton & Hove City Council...

HMOs PLANNING CONSULTATION Residents’ concerns about high concentrations of houses in multiple occupation (HMOs) have led to a proposal to extend the current planning rules across the city. In most of Brighton & Hove, property owners wishing to convert a family house into a shared house or HMO for up to six people do not currently have to get planning permission. Larger HMOs of seven or more occupants already need planning permission. Give us your views on the proposal by visiting ‘open consultations’ at: consultation. The consultation runs from Monday 3rd June to Monday 15th July. Currently five wards have controls through an ‘Article 4 Direction’ which means that in the following areas small HMO conversions need planning permission: • Hanover & Elm Grove • Hollingdean & Stanmer • Moulsecoomb & Bevendean • Queen’s Park • St Peters & North Laine If agreed it will mean that planning permission will be required for a change of use from a family home to a small HMO anywhere in the city. A citywide approach aims to make the rules consistent for everyone, provide

long-term certainty for developers and residents and prevent concentrations getting too high before action is taken. It would also bring the planning regulations in line with HMO licensing which is already in force citywide.

Nathalie’s health tip this month is for women...

SEED CYCLING FOR HORMONAL BALANCE AND FERTILITY Seed cycling is a gentle way to help reduce symptoms associated with high oestrogen and low progesterone levels such as PMT, ovarian cysts, clotting, endometriosis, breast sensitivity, irregular cycles and PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome). It focuses on increasing levels of oestrogen in the first phase of your cycle where oestrogen is required and boosts levels of progesterone in phase two of your cycle.

The principles are as follows: Phase 1: Day 1 of period to day 15 of cycle (ovulation):Eat daily: 1 tbsp of ground flax seeds + 1 tbsp pumpkin 29 to seeds – with additional fish/krill oil during this phase provide additional omega 3. Phase 2: Day 15 (ovulation) to day 28:- Oestrogen needs to be kept in balance in phase 2 by increasing levels of progesterone. Eat daily: 1 tbsp ground sesame seeds + 1 tbsp ground (or whole) sunflower seeds. Evening primrose oil is recommended in this phase (to reduce inflammation and increase progesterone).

Additional points: •

Ideally buy whole seeds then grind just before consuming.

Don’t eat the ‘wrong’ seeds out of phase, ie no flax or pumpkin in phase 2. • Sprinkle on muesli/porridge, smoothies, salads, soups etc. • Do not heat or cook the seeds • A tablespoon of ground seeds is not the same as 1 tablespoon of whole seeds. Consult your GP for potential interactions of fish/krill oil with your health condition and/or medication. As with many ‘natural’ alternatives, it can take 3-4 cycles to get the results you want, so be patient Nathalie Sansonetti. Health & Nutrition Coach. Want some clarity on your health and gut issues?

This article is by Wish ward councillor Robert Nemeth...

SAFETY ON PORTLAND ROAD There is no doubt that safety on Portland Road – on the road itself, on the pavements and, in particular, around the schools – is a big concern in West Hove. Cllr Garry Peltzer Dunn and I found this out for certain when we received huge support for our proposal to ban dangerous pavement parking outside Wish Park Surgery. The successful campaign of course led to Hove’s first ever pavement parking ban which continues to work well. But it has taken several interesting twists since which is what Cllr Garry Peltzer Dunn and I are informing residents about now. Over one thousand Wish Ward residents recently responded to our detailed survey about a number of different Portland Road issues. We sent the results out to all Wish residents but also used them to lobby the Council for a series of safety-related improvements; Portland Road of course being the most unsafe road in our part of town. In our discussions with the Council’s traffic engineers, we have called for many different safety features. Funding has now been found and a draft scheme has been presented to us. The focus of the scheme is on improving safety around the junctions with side streets by building out the pavements to both stop hazardous parking taking place and to make crossing easier. It’s a win-win really for both road-users and pedestrians. We will share the plan far and wide once it is beyond the draft stage. Off the back of this work, we have been contacted by a group of parents who have concerns about air quality outside the two schools. The schools’ playgrounds are close to a busy crossing point after all. Although there is some data about air quality locally, it’s not local enough to draw any firm conclusions. The nearest sampling point is on Station Road in Portslade. Garry and I will shortly be requesting that data is collected outside the schools. If we do not receive a positive answer,


we will again be collecting petition signatures. Not wishing to pre-empt poor air quality results, we are starting to look into what other schools have done to counter fumes from nearby cars. Trees and bushes along a boundary help no end. And on that happy note, we are delighted to announce that the Council has agreed to replace the four missing trees outside Wish Park Surgery that were knocked over by motorists parking on the pavement!

Local group...

HOVE LAGOON MODEL YACHT CLUB... Once upon a time 90 years ago in early 1929, six good and true men of Hove - three local business men and three artisans sharing an interest in model boats - met together and decided to start a model yacht club. Hove Borough Council had decided under the “Make men useful work” scheme during the 20s depression years to construct a model boat lake on swamp land adjacent to the sea. This scheme not only provided manual work for unemployed men, but when completed encouraged an economic hobby to construct and sail model yachts on the new lagoon. The council built two high ceiling shelters at the west end of the lagoon for tall yachts to be stored and provide shelter in bad weather. One of these is still in use to this day as the clubhouse for the model yacht club. It is rented from Brighton & Hove City Council, along with a council agreement between us and


“Mr Rusty” at Hove Lagoon in 1969




Hove Lagoon Watersports. We work closely with them and enjoy the use of their small café area and toilets. We have the agreed sole use of the western half of the lagoon from 9am until 2pm every Sunday. By early 1930 the Hove and Brighton Model Yacht Club was formed. Model yachting became popular on the new lagoon and the club continues to thrive. It is now established as Hove Lagoon Model Yacht Club and runs a year-round racing programme, for mainly International One Metre Class yachts. Last year we started sailing the low cost DragonFlite 95 yachts, now sailed once a month as this is attracting interest, and it is hoped this will bring in more members. Making model yachts sail a course has always been difficult. Since the 70s when cheap Japanese radio control gear came onto the market our yachts are now radio controlled. Our races only take a few minutes depending on wind strength and direction around marker buoys setting out the course, and compared with full-size racing we get more starts, more racing and more fun. Like all good stories that start “once upon a time” there must be a happy ending, and there is. Hove Lagoon Model Yacht Club is a thriving local club always on the look-out for new members - details on our website - or just come and talk to us on a Sunday morning. Les Baker

Help keep our city’s trees!

PLANT YOUR POSTCODE... Look around. We’re lucky, there are trees everywhere – but now your help is needed to keep our city leafy. You may have noticed that many of our city’s beautiful trees are getting old and succumbing to disease. Add to this the challenge that our council faces in the battle to add or even replace trees in this time of austerity, and it becomes clear that residents’ help is needed. Our trees: Brighton & Hove’s trees are particularly special because we hold the National Elm Collection. Now the city is home to some of the rarest varieties of elms in the world. It’s important that the number of elms we have is at least maintained. A vast number of37 trees were planted in Victorian times when the city rapidly expanded. Now those trees are reaching the end of their lives, so action is needed to replace them.

How to take action Create a group in your area: It could be that a few trees in your street have been lost over time and you’d like to see them re-planted. Or you’d like trees where there were none before. You can help to make that happen. A local group of, say, one or more streets can decide to have new trees. Brighton & Hove City Council will arrange for the site to be checked. If it’s suitable, the group can club together to raise funds. The council can then order the trees and plant them. Trees are ordered in September for planting the following year. • Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships • Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial disputes, Children matters) • Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships Residential Conveyancing and Commercial Conveyancing, shop & lease sales Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial • • Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships • Personal injury - all forms of accident claims • • disputes, Children matters) Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial • • Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA), Deputyships Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews disputes, Children matters) • • Residential Conveyancing and Commercial Conveyanc• Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial disputes, Children matters) under caution & Prosecutions • Family Law (Divorce, Dissolution, Pre-Nups, Financial ing, shop & lease sales disputes, Children matters) Residential Conveyancing and Commercial Conveyanc• • disputes, Children matters) Residential Conveyancing and Commercial Conveyancdisputes, Children matters) Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice ing, shop & lease sales Personal injury - all forms of accident claims • • • Residential Conveyancing and Commercial ConveyancResidential Conveyancing and Commercial Conveyancing, shop & lease sales • Residential Conveyancing and Commercial ConveyancCivil litigation / Debt recovery ing, shop & lease sales Personal injury - all forms of accident claims • • ing, shop & lease sales Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews Personal injury - all forms of accident claims ing, shop & lease sales under caution & Prosecutions Personal injury - all forms of accident claims Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews • • • • Personal injury - all forms of accident claims Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews Personal injury - all forms of accident claims under caution & Prosecutions Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice • Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews • • under caution & Prosecutions • Defending DWP Benefit Fraud investigations, Interviews under caution & Prosecutions Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice • • under caution & Prosecutions Civil litigation / Debt recovery Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice under caution & Prosecutions • • Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice Civil litigation / Debt recovery • • Civil litigation / Debt recovery • Criminal and Road Traffic Defence advice Civil litigation / Debt recovery • • Civil litigation / Debt recovery • Civil litigation / Debt recovery See local reviews of this business at

Become a Tree Champion: You can help identify trees in your area which look sickly or you could take on a research project. Get your local school involved: It’s important that the coming generation are aware of our city’s tree legacy. Help fund trees across the city: Make a difference with a single donation or a regular donation by standing order. Where it’s already worked: A Hove resident who has benefitted from new tree planting, funded by residents, says: ‘A new tree outside our house, to replace one long dead!
