WEST HOVE

Meet a local musician...

WEST HOVE PERSON – DAVID TAGGART David Taggart lives in New Church Road and runs Little Pickles music classes for parents and toddlers at Hove Methodist Church in Portland Road. He is also a long-standing session musician and has played guitar and backing vocals for Belinda Carlisle for the last 18 years. How long have you lived in West Hove? My wife Laura and I moved from the North East about 20 years ago. Both kids are born and bred Hoverians. What do you like about the area? What is there not to like? Beach at the end of the street, great facilities, shops, eclectic atmosphere and of course we’ve made lots of great friends. Tell us about your Little Pickles classes...

5

My Little Pickles sessions have been entertaining children and parents for a good few years now. A typical Little Pickles session consists of songs and rhymes played on a variety of instruments, i.e. guitar, mandolin, ukulele. At one point I even had a black guitar with so many purple LED lights on that a parent insisted on buying it off me. The children also have a chance to play themselves from the large box of percussion instruments supplied. Great songs from rockers to soul to old faves, then we

Doors and Conservatories

move on to the animal box and various puppets and we sing animal songs etc. To keep the parents awake and attentive, I normally like to update a few old nursery rhymes and throw in a few one-liners. We have a five minute ‘quiet time’ with gentle songs, then it’s up on our feet for the finale of sleepy rabbits or whatever. Then it’s biscuits and breadsticks for the little ones and tea/coffee for the grown-ups. Children are astute little things and they know when you’re faking it so I don’t do ‘twee’ or cheese. Do you play an instrument yourself? Yes, as well as being a professional singer, I play acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, uke, banjo, keyboards, harmonica and also write and perform my own music.

What do you like to do when you’re not working? Come the spring it’s a beach life when possible, plus reading, but mostly it’s music, both playing and listening as well as a bit of instrument making and repair work. Music for me is a passion. David will be out on the road with Belinda Carlisle on the Culture Club arena tour starting November 9th, including the Brighton Centre on Tuesday November 13th. Little Pickles classes are on Mondays at Hangleton Oasis Church, Wednesdays and Thursdays at Hove Methodist Church, and Fridays at South Portslade Community Centre (all at 10am).

Hundreds of artists and makers will be opening their houses and studio spaces, offering the opportunity 9 to buy a diverse selection of arts and crafts. Many of the houses also offer mince pies and mulled wine. One local Art at Cat-arzyna, 11 St Keyna Avenue highlight is Cat-arzyna at 11 St Keyna Avenue: Polish designer Catarzyna transforms everyday objects with her unique blend of Polish-meets-French vintage chic.

Other local houses exhibiting include: Bluebell Would at 45 Westbourne Gardens; A Journey from Hove to Sagra at 69 Grange Road; Villa LVI at 56 Payne Avenue; and 12 Scott Road. For more information on all the open houses, visit www.aoh.org.uk.

Quality Care Insurance Services, a local business in Kingsway providing insurance for care homes, have begun a new project, Pollard’s Promises, with the aim of making a resident’s dreams come true! David Barrell with QCIS Managing Director Darren Pollard

They recently surprised 94-year-old David Barrell with a trip on Brighton’s i360, after David’s home nominated him for the experience. David loved his day, soaking in the views from 450ft! Prior’s Mead Residential Home kindly nominated David due to his passion for aeroplanes, the fact he still attends numerous aeroplane clubs, as well as previously flying scout children in his very own plane! Quality Care felt that a flight of a different kind on the i360 would be a perfect experience for David, and he loved every second of being in the sky once again. If you work within a care sector or know someone in a home that deserves a treat, please get in touch with Quality Care on info@qcis.co.uk to nominate the resident! More info at www.qcis.co.uk

On the centenary of the Armistice, a local history article by West Hove resident Rachel Bridgeman...

WEST HOVE

THE SECRET PRINCES In 1916, Mametz Wood was the scene of one of the bloodiest battles of The Somme. Ordered to take the wood in a frontal daylight assault, soldiers of the Welsh divisionwere machine-gunned as they crossed open fields. Those who made it into the woods faced brutal hand-to-hand combat in which they were outnumbered three-to-one. Casualties were severe and for Wales the battle came to stand for the bloodshed of the entire war. But the fighting was significant for another reason; one young private would go on to write a literary masterpiece about his experiences which would win the major literary award of its day. WH Auden called it “the greatest book about the first world war” and TS Eliot thought it a “work of genius”. He was the poet who spent the longest time in action during the war and his name is among the 16 Great War poets commemorated 11 in Westminster Abbey.

David Jones

Yet few have heard of him. His name is David Jones. He suffered a series of breakdowns and was nearly always poor. The poet himself reflected: “Part of me, the artist within me, has never left the trenches.” In 1928, this survivor of the war came to stay at Hove Seaside Villas (“Millionaires’Row”). And it was not until he was here, 10 years after the war had ended, that he could face writing about his horrific experiences, in his epic poem “In Parenthesis”. A work utterly unlike

anything that had gone before it. It is dedicated to “my friends; in mind of all common and hidden men and of the secret princes”. That is to say, to the ordinary soldiers he wanted to honour through his writing. Already a renowned artist, he painted a dozen sea and beach scenes from his window in West Hove; one of which is among his 13 paintings hanging in The Tate. David Jones is just one of the fascinating individuals I talk about on my ‘Soldiers, Saints, Celebrities and Saxons’ guided historic walking tour of West Hove. David Jones’ dedication also moved me to write a guided historic walking tour of Poets’ Corner - ‘1918-2018: the war is over’ - commemorating the end of the Great War and remembering those in our community who made such a huge sacrifice a century ago. The tour conveys the pride, bravery and enthusiasm as well as the horror and sadness. It tells the story of these men and the community in the years 1914-18, includes poetry and art, and has lighter aspects such as Jelly Babies! For further information, email hoveactuallywalks@gmail.com or visit Facebook “Hove Actually Walking Tours”. Rachel Bridgeman (tour guide and local historian)

A nationwide commemoration of the First World War Armistice...

BATTLE’S OVER Battle’s Over is a nationwide day of commemorative events on Sunday 11th November, marking the centenary of the end of the First World War and paying tribute to the millions killed or wounded in battle, and those on the home front who helped ensure freedom survived. At 6am 1,000 pipers around the world will commence the day’s commemorations with the traditional Scottish lament played at the end of battle – Battle’s O’er. At 6.55pm buglers will sound the Last Post at more than 1,000 locations, where at 7pm World War One Beacons of Light will be lit in a tribute signifying the light of peace that emerged from the darkness of four years of war. Then at 7.05pm 1,000 churches will ring out their bells in celebration of peace and more than 140 town criers will join in an International Cry for Peace around the13 world. St Leonard’s Church has the last active peal of bells in Hove and eight new members have recently been recruited to the bellringing team. They will be present on 11th November to ring half-muffled bells in the morning in memory of those who died in the Great War. St Leonard’s will also be holding a short service for Battle’s Over at 6pm on November 11th, led by the Archdeacon of Brighton & Lewes, in the presence of civic dignitaries including the Mayor. The Last Post will be sounded on the bugle at 6.55pm, the service will include

WEST HOVE

Local fresh fish shack re-opens....

HOVE FISH SHACK Many of those who have lived in Hove for a number of years will remember the Fish Shack on the Western Esplanade of Hove seafront. Since the 1970s, Ross and friends would pull their boats up onto the beach at Hove and sell their haul of freshly caught fish. When Ross retired, Connor and husband Sean continued the enterprise. Unfortunately increased regulation surrounding fishing quotas and licences, coupled with the improvement of local harbours, has brought about a demise of such practices, which in turn resulted in the closure of the Fish Shack on Hove beach. In June of this year, following a full refurbishment, the Fish Shack was re-opened by a local retired fisherman and his partner. Open all year round, from Thursday through to Sunday, they offer a wide range of fresh fish, frozen fish products, shellfish and seafood. Where possible, Hove Fish Shack source as much as they can locally, but they will also buy from markets further afield such as Brixham and Plymouth, to ensure that they have the freshest and most sustainable produce available to meet their customers’ needs. Committed to reducing the amount of plastic in our oceans, Hove Fish Shack strives to be plastic free. Fish is wrapped in waxed paper and seafood produce is only sold in pots which are made of plant/vegetable matter and are 100% compostable. Paper carriers are available for those without their own carriers, or trendy Fish Shack cotton shoppers are available to buy.

19

In addition to regular stock items and daily catch, almost any fish or seafood product is available to order. Simply contact the Fish Shack by telephone or email to discuss your requirements. Orders can also be placed in the same manner to ensure that your fish is packed and ready for collection by you should you be in a hurry. So whether looking for fish for your supper, that special occasion meal, or simply just a pot of cockles or fresh oysters to eat on the beach or while out for a stroll, you will find the Fish Shack situated on the beach directly behind Hove Bowls Club, or approximately 300 metres west of the King Alfred. The facility to make payment by card is also available. You will always be greeted with a smile, and not only are they happy to advise on cooking methods or recipe ideas, they are also keen to hear yours! See you soon!!

Offering a range of fresh fish, shellfish and seafood products. Committed to being plastic free so only use 100% compostable pots made of veg/plant based matter, waxed paper and paper bags. Open Thurs through to Sun 10am - 4.30pm.

In reply to Nathalie Sansonetti (October issue West Hove Directory p29), I’m an Independent Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant in Hove so my business is low calorie diets. I would like to point out that our products are nutritionally balanced, I see clients once a week as part of my oneto-one ongoing support to them, I make a medical assessment, and my amazing clients follow a Six Step Plan, so this is a proven method to help people to lose weight. As such, like Nathalie I am a business and I have great results from my clients. Please see the feedback on my web page to see how happy people are with the results. Also with regards to low calorie diets, there has been a much publicised positive outcome from the recent DROPLET research.

Nathalie’s monthly health tip...

CHOLESTEROL TIPS October was Cholesterol Awareness Month so how about some clarity on one of the most misunderstood aspects of heart health? Firstly, all your cells produce cholesterol, which plays a crucial role in maintaining cellular health and survival. When inflammation is present in the body, however, caused by poor diet, stress, and other individual sensitivities, ‘bad’ cholesterol (LDL) increases, raising your chances of heart disease. HDL, on the other hand, aka ‘good’ cholesterol, lowers the negative impact of LDL and can be increased through diet and healthy lifestyle habits. Some guidelines for a healthy HDL/LDL ratio: 29 Increase: Good fats, particularly omega 3 fats found in oily fish, nuts, seeds, eggs (yes!) plus other fats: avocados and olive oil Fibre: helps to excrete excess cholesterol - oats, wholegrain, legumes, vegetables, fruit Good bacteria in organic full fat natural yogurt, unpasteurised fermented foods and quality probiotics Water - to ensure good elimination and help reduce inflammation

Reduce/cut out: Hydrogenated/trans-fats and processed vegetable oils in packaged foods Poor quality meats Refined ‘white’ carbohydrates, sugar, alcohol and caffeine Pasteurised, homogenised non-organic dairy products Good dietary habits paired with regular exercise will go a long way to help with heart health – but stress also plays a major part in increasing inflammation. So remember to simply stop, breathe, be grateful and do nothing! Nathalie X Nathalie Sansonetti. I help people who struggle with chronic health issues while juggling kids, work, life. I offer effective, powerful ways to regain health and vitality through custom nutritional guidance, mealplans and full support, so you can live life to the full. newleafnutrition.co.uk See local reviews of this business at

Local news...

WHARF ROAD EMBANKMENT ART PROJECT Millimetre, a company of designers and makers based in Portslade, are installing an artwork and wildflower meadow on Wharf Road Embankment (just north of Hove Lagoon). They have partnered with Brighton & Hove Environmental Education (BHee) and hope to involve children from St Peter’s Community Primary School in the project. The scheme will be paid for with money from Section 106 Developer Contributions.

Artist’s impression of the Wharf Road Embankment design

33

The first stage of the groundwork has been done and the couch grass (an invasive species) that populated the site has been removed. It is hoped that the project will be completed around the end of November, although for the first two years it will be tricky to get the plants established.

Local news...

FRIENDS OF STONEHAM PARK

This is a different scheme from the one originally chosen last year, which fell through. The artwork, designed by Adam Harris, is a structure based on a maritime design tool known as a ‘spline’ to create smooth curves made from long strips of galvanised steel. The wildflowers will be planted around it to attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators and will be relatively low maintenance. Chalk has been spread over the site, as the soil needs to be infertile for wildflowers to establish. Wildflowers have been selected that provide a nectar source, visual attraction for passers-by and which will survive close to the sea. Grasses and some ornamental perennials are also added to the selection for variation. Brighton & Hove’s Cityparks department has been busy creating butterfly havens all over the city over the past few years, as pollinators are in decline.

With Christmas shopping lists being written, where better to come and stock up on gifts, luxury food and to enjoy a festive atmosphere than the Friends of Stoneham Park’s Christmas Market? This year the Christmas Market will be on Saturday, 1 December, between 11 and 3 o’clock. Last year’s event was good but this year’s will be even better. We’ll have mulled wine and hot chocolate, tasty street food and filling winter warmers all for you to enjoy. There will be live music and another phenomenal prize draw. And best of all, Santa will be popping by for the duration with a splendid grotto in The Snug café. See you there! Richard Hearnden

GET FIT FOR SKIING

35

I know it sounds early, the start of November, but ski resorts will now be in full swing; busily getting ready, checking the cable cars and button lifts, stocking the hire shops and bars, in preparation for all of you heading their way!

Getting ready is exactly what you should be doing - if you’re returning to the slopes, for the umpteenth time, or it’s your very first visit! If you are fit and prepared, you are far less likely to suffer from injury on the slopes. Try and focus your preparation towards working groups of muscles which will be used in skiing or snowboarding. Exercise bikes or cycling and cross trainers are good, mixed with balance and control exercises, to prepare your nervous system, such as single leg balance and squats. Make sure you are well hydrated on the slopes to keep alert, and learn some basic rules, such as wear a helmet, as head injuries account for 13% of all injuries in snowboarding and 8% in skiing. Also stop in a safe place and after stopping look up the mountain and yield to those coming down, before setting off. If hiring, know your body weight, so the staff can adjust bindings properly. The predominant body part injured in skiing is the knee, accounting for about 33% of injuries. Thigh, ankle

and lower leg injuries are also more common in skiing, compared to snowboarding. In contrast, only about 7% of snowboarding injuries involve the knee, but 27% the wrist (compared with only 5% for skiers). Snowboarders are also more likely to suffer shoulder injuries than skiers (17% for snowboarders, 12% for skiers). Snowboarders also suffer more arm and elbow injuries and would be well advised to wear elbow and wrist pads. Most ski resorts have good medical facilities and can help with diagnosis of injuries, but you need to follow up on physiotherapy, for proper rehabilitation and/or advice, on your return. Injury is very unlikely, especially if you follow the advice set out above, so enjoy yourself with the exhilaration of skiing and snowboarding. Nigel Howell is a chartered physiotherapist and works at the Circle Studios in North Street, Portslade (01273 911331), Havelock Road Physiotherapy Clinic in Brighton and The Physiotherapy Centre in Haywards Heath.

Update from your Local Action Team...

NEWS FROM THE WEST HOVE FORUM Waste and Recycling: Our last meeting was attended by a representative of Cityclean, who explained how the council’s waste and recycling system works. The operation is managed by Cityclean, a council department. Cityclean run the refuse and recycling collections and have a contract with Veolia, a French company, to deal with the waste after the council tips it. It’s Veolia’s job to sift through the recycling. The main issue with recycling is contamination. The contract’s guidance allows no more than 10% contamination of the recycling, but as a city we are not consistently below this percentage, with contamination often reaching 15-20%. If recycling bins are contaminated, the whole process costs more as it all ends up as refuse. This makes it difficult to introduce recycling litter bins in places like the seafront, where there are a lot of visitors who don’t know what can be recycled. The trial recycling 37 litter bin scheme at Hove Lagoon is supported by the Friends of Hove Lagoon, who check that there’s not too much contamination, and this sort of scheme might work in other more residential areas. It seems to many of us that other councils recycle more and it’s very likely that councils with food waste collections can have a higher recycling rate. With regard to plastic, however, other councils who collect the types of plastics that Brighton & Hove City Council do not, cannot always recycle these plastics as there may not be any end

Want a weekend job making a difference? Are you compassionate, friendly and do
 you want to do something meaningful with
 your spare time? We are looking for CareGivers to help older people enjoy their life at home and remain independent – perhaps providing companionship, helping with light housework, making a meal or supporting the start of their day, with visits
 of at least one hour in length. No previous experience is necessary – just the desire to help other people. Please call to Þnd out more about what

The Newhaven Energy Recovery Facility

market for this material. This could result in these plastics being sent to incineration. We need more information on what can and can’t be recycled. For example, the only plastic that can be recycled in Brighton & Hove is plastic bottles (all plastic bottles including drinks, milk, detergent, shampoo and washing-up liquid bottles), without the lids. The only plastic lids that can be recycled are those from plastic milk bottles - those bottles should first be flattened and then the bottle top screwed back onto the bottle. Any refuse which isn’t recycled goes to the Newhaven incinerator, an “energy from waste facility” which produces energy from waste. A positive point is that Brighton & Hove has a very low percentage – less than 5% - of waste ending up in landfill, which is the worst place environmentally to which you can send waste. Healthy Neighbourhood Fund: Grants of up to £500 are still available. Any small not-for-profit groups should email us as soon as possible if you have a project with a clear health outcome and would like to apply. The next West Hove Forum meeting will be at 2pm on 28 November at Hove Methodist Church. If you would like to attend on behalf of a group or business, email westhoveforum@gmail.com.

SNAILSPACE THE GARDEN NURSERY FESTIVE FAREWELL IS BLOOMING! The Snailspace public art trail has been in the city since mid-September and will end on 18th November. The trail is raising money for the Martlets Hospice. At the end of the event, there will be a Snailspace Festive Farewell - the chance to say goodbye to all 107 large and small snails as they gather in Brighton for a final sendoff before they are auctioned. This is a great opportunity to see the entire collection of snails together. The event will take place on Friday 30 November, Saturday 1 December and Sunday 2 December (there will be one hour timeslots) at St Augustine’s Church, Stanford Avenue in Fiveways. Entry costs £6 per adult and £3 per child. Under-twos are free. Tickets will be available via the Snailspace website (www.snailspacebrighton.co.uk) or via a link on the Facebook page.

The team from The Garden Nursery in New Church Road have been inspired by the Blooming Boundary Campaign which has brightened up Boundary Road with planters. They’ve been very busy in their front garden in a start to bring the scheme along New Church Road.

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, together with Penguin Ventures, are showing a stunning exhibition of the original book artwork created by the Sussex-based author and illustrator Raymond Briggs. The exhibition will also inspire a new collage artwork of The Snowman using festive images submitted by the public to be unveiled in December at Brighton Museum.

The Snowman, first published in 1978, is a magical story of love and loss. The picture book tells the story of a boy who builds a snowman which comes to life at the stroke of midnight. He and the boy explore the house, trying not to wake the boy’s parents. They then go outside and take flight, travelling over snow-covered fields and getting a bird’s-eye view of the buildings of Brighton, including the Royal Pavilion. They stay out until sunrise when the boy reluctantly goes home to bed. The next morning the boy wakes up to find that his new friend has melted. Raymond Briggs writes and illustrates from his home and studio near Brighton in the Sussex Downs. The house that appears in The Snowman is based on Raymond’s own home and the view from the boy’s window was inspired by the view from his studio. In 1982 The Snowman was adapted for screen and has been shown on Channel 4 at Christmas every year since, becoming a firm favourite with children and adults all over the world and an intrinsic part of family festive traditions.Some of the original hand-drawn cels - celluloid sheets used for traditional animation - from the TV adaptation will also be on display. To commemorate the anniversary, children’s author Michael Morpurgo has reimagined Raymond Briggs’ original tale as a chapter book, illustrated by Robin Shaw. Robin Shaw has also created a short animation especially for the 40th anniversary celebrations that will premiere in the gallery from 4 December. For more information, visit brightonmuseums.org.uk.
