We offer incredible new versions of food and drink that you might find familiar. We have sodas made in house with some help from our centrifuge machine. They have around one tenth of the sugar of regular sodas. Our cocktails are crafted with loving care using house made essences, bitters and artisanal spirits. Some of our cakes have no added sugar. Some are completely dairy free. We are really proud of our velvety, house made, organic cashew and tiger nut milk blend.

Our coffee has to be tasted to be believed. We only use the best butter, virgin coconut oil (for our many non dairy/vegan creations) and extra virgin olive oil for dressing. Our tea is brewed in clean glass, to the perfect temperature.

Everything we have is completely free of gluten. That's right, everything. Even our house made sourdough, sweet bakes Xe[fliYlkk\id`cbgXeZXb\j% FliX`d`j\oZ\cc\eZ\XjjkXe[Xi[%N\ dXb\jlg\i]ff[]fijlg\ig\fgc\%

West Hove film director EllioƩ Hasler tells us about his latest project...


LOCAL DIRECTOR FILMS “VINDICATION SWIM” The UK’s youngest feature film director, Ellio Hasler, is 19 years old and comes from Berriedale Avenue, West Hove. We spoke to Ellio in 2017, a er the premiere of his first feature film, Charlie’s Le ers, at the Brighton Fringe Fes val. His latest film in produc on is Vindica on Swim, about Mercedes Gleitze, the first English woman to swim the Channel, who was born in Brighton. Ellio told us more... Why did you decide to make a film on Mercedes Gleitze? I decided to make ‘Vindica on Swim’, a film based on the life of Mercedes Gleitze, because it’s just an incredible story about an equally incredible and inspiring woman. There’s a whole lot more to it than just swimming the English 5 Channel, but to go into that would be to spoil the film! What stage is the film at currently? I am two-thirds through the ‘on water’ filming, most of which I hope to have done by the end of September, before returning to university. The one major water scene for next year I am star ng to plan is to collate a number of old wooden boats just off shore at Shoreham. If any readers can help with this I’d be very interested in talking to them. We have two old wooden Oyster Cu ers already booked in.

Kirsten Callaghan and EllioƩ Hasler filming VindicaƟon Swim

Are you using Brighton & Hove loca ons and actors? We are absolutely using Brighton & Hove actors and loca ons! Our lead Kirsten Callaghan is from Brighton, as are the majority of the other cast members including John Locke of ‘Darkest Hour’ and ‘The Favourite’, who plays Mercedes’ coach in the film. The idea is for this film to be the next ‘Quadrophenia’, an iconic Brightonbased film that the whole city was able to come behind and fully embrace; we’re looking to emulate that with ‘Vindica on Swim’. Have you got any more films planned? I think I’ll concentrate on the task at hand first, which will take some me due to the huge challenge of filming out at sea. Although having said that there are certainly ideas running through my mind.

You are also studying history at the University of Exeter. Is it difficult combining your film-making with your university studies? Not par cularly, I did it before with ‘Charlie’s Le ers’, so I’m not concerned about doing it again with ‘Vindica on Swim’. For more informaƟon on EllioƩ’s work, visit www.relsahproducƟons.co.uk.

Local history from Rachel Bridgeman...

“THE FORGOTTEN MEN� “Listen to the wraiths of morning in Flanders fields of grey, Can you hear The Royal Sussex who came and went away And linger s ll in graves unknown amidst the furrow and the thorn. But never flinched, duty done, these sons of Sussex bred and born.� (anon) Barely a family or community across Great Britain escaped the First World War untouched by terrible loss. The Hove Roll of Honour lists 631 names. Hove was far smaller at that me, just the parishes of Hove and Aldrington - West Hove fell within both parishes.

Men from the Southdowns BaĆŠalions of the Royal Sussex, nicknamed “Lowther’s Lambsâ€?, at Cooden Camp, Bexhill; photo from royalsussex-southdowns.co.uk, courtesy of David Lester

9 West Hove was unique in some ways; it was bordered by two military hospitals for injured soldiers (with a third just a stone’s throw away) giving witness to the horrific consequences of war; what the poet W. H. Auden called “the greatest book about the first world war� was wri en here by one of the 16 war poets commemorated in Westminster Abbey; and, with a prisoner-of-war camp within its boundaries, German soldiers marching at bayonet point to work were a familiar sight. But, in other ways, it provided a microcosm of the tragedy that was happening all over Sussex and the rest of the country. Its soldiers fought in all the branches of the armed forces; are buried in the fields of Flanders and as far away as Chile, Pales ne, Mesopotamia, Egypt and the North Atlan c. They were the sons, brothers and husbands of our local community.

Reading the words of a veteran, “When we are gone, no-one will remember us or what we did,� moved me to write a historic guided walking tour to honour these men and the communi es they le behind. The “Poets Corner & The Great War� historical guided walking tour conveys the pride, bravery and enthusiasm as well as the horror and sadness; includes poetry and art; and has lighter aspects such as Jelly Babies! The “Soldiers, Saints, Celebri es & Saxons� tour includes the First World War poet who wrote his epic poetry in West

Hove and is commemorated in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey. To receive the Hove Actually Walking Tours programme of walks, email hoveactuallywalks@ gmail.com Informa on also available on Facebook (Hove Actually Walking Tours).

(Footnote: “The ForgoĆŠen Menâ€? is how the survivors of the Great War oĹŒen referred to themselves)

An update from your Local AcƟon Team...

NEWS FROM THE WEST HOVE FORUM... Electric charging points At September’s mee ng of the West Hove Forum, the issue was raised of the council’s installa on of electric vehicle chargers. 200 lamp-post charge points are due to be installed across the city this year and ini al loca ons have been revealed (see electricbrighton.com/planned) but are s ll subject to change. Charging points have already been installed in Saxon Road and Wish Road, although there are no road markings to say that they are for vehicle charging, so currently anyone can park there. Some forum members were concerned that this will reduce the number of parking spaces for non-electric cars and that there seems to be no public consulta on on sites and how these will be regulated. Our ward councillors agreed to find out more about this.


Police recruitment and 101 calls Sussex Police are recrui ng 800 more officers over three years, including civilian staff. Resources will be concentrated on high crime areas.


Darren Hallett, Middleton Avenue, Hove dhcarpentry@yahoo.co.uk 07766 977 181 01273 710 097

The police 101 service has been improved – if they can’t answer the call they will ring you back. You should dial 101, not 999, to report less-urgent crime, eg a stolen car, which doesn’t require an immediate response. 999 should only be used when there is a crime in progress or a threat to life. You can also report non-urgent crimes online at sussex.police.uk/ro/report/ Blooming Boundary Wish ward councillors and 45 people from the Blooming Boundary group have filled five new planters in Boundary Road/Sta on Road, with the help of Kate Bradbury from Gardeners’ World. They have repaired the exis ng planters and are now looking for people to adopt a planter each. King Alfred Leisure Centre Following the withdrawal of developer Crest Nicholson from the King Alfred development, the West Hove Forum are concerned that improvements to the Western Esplanade are being linked to the development of the leisure centre. It looks as if the project will have to go back to the drawing board. The Crest Nicholson scheme wasn’t popular with the public and forum members agreed that there was a need for a wide public consulta on, looking at all op ons. West Hove Forum meeƟngs are aƩended by ward councillors and a wide range of community representaƟves. The next West Hove Forum meeƟng will be at 2pm on Wednesday 23rd October at Hove Methodist Church Hall. If you would like to aƩend on behalf of a group or business, please email westhoveforum@gmail.com.

News from Westbourne councillors Carmen Appich and Chris Henry…


COUNCILLOR NEWS... We have now been councillors for almost six months and have been able to get stuck into the priori es we campaigned on during the elec on. There are many distrac ons (mee ngs, mee ngs and more mee ngs) but we are determined not to have our focus on our residents shi ed. We toured the West Hove seafront with the Chair of the West Hove Forum to assess the state of the promenade and facili es. We want to channel some money into a spruce-up and give it some a en on so that it remains a beau ful, historic area. The two renovated shelters will be unveiled soon, forming part of this plan. Our discussions have also begun in earnest regarding play facili es on the West Hove Lawns. We’re determined to bring some family ac vi es here as there is the space and it seems crazy to expect the whole of West Hove to pile into the Lagoon or travel to Brighton paddling pool. And talking of the beach, we’re excited to be involved in improved beach accessibility for disabled people. Many local residents cannot equally access the beach and the sea as current beach access is not adequate for people with a wide range of needs. Exci ng plans include working with the Beach Access Team and approaching the universi es to see whether design students might be able to come up with solu ons.

Our local Westbourne community deserves safe and well-policed streets, so when it felt like there was a spike in crime and break-ins we joined with Peter Kyle MP so that our united voices could get the police to sit up and listen. Hopefully that worked and mee ngs with the Chief Superintendent will con nue over the rest of the year. We have been assured that you will get to see more community police around your neighbourhood. Finally, whilst it hasn’t been great summer weather for children, it’s been very lovely for pavement weeds! A ban on weedkiller in the city has meant council gardeners clearing weeds by hand and whilst some residents have commented on the charm of “living streets”, it’s not good if pavements become obstructed or drains become blocked. We’ve therefore been in constant contact with the council team and tried to direct resources to the worst areas. Moving forward we will ask the Environment Commi ee to source a nontoxic weedkiller for next summer!

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

LOCAL EXERCISE...BODYATTACK I decided to take some me off running when it suddenly occurred to me that I haven’t had a break from it for around 11 years. Of course this meant, instead of having a nice rest from over a decade of running and other exercises, I’d try some new things to fill the void. (I forgot that things other than exercise exist - do they?) Naturally I looked on The Circle’s extensive metable to find something new to try. I wanted something cardio, without too much coordina on required. BODYATTACK seemed just the thing. This is another from the Les Mills stable. 45 minutes of running, jumping, lunging, ski-ing, press ups, sit ups, mountain climbers, you name it it’s there. I chose Lucie’s class having enjoyed her BODYPUMP classes. We began with some running on the spot, side to side lunges and backwards and forwards ski-ing. Eek! The thing I like least about classes: when coordina on is required. I just about managed not to crash into the perfectly choreographed people all around me. A er this promising (?) start we proceeded on to much more flinging about of the selves. We split into pairs and, whilst one person did tuck jumps, ran on the spot, did star jumps etc for 20 seconds, the other rested. Tabata at its finest. Not even halfway into the 45 minute class and I was already well aware of why it’s called BODYATTACK.

A er this on-the-spot onslaught we moved on to...well... moving. Running around the room to be precise. This was interspersed with stopping and moving our circle in and out Hokey Cokey style whilst doing star jumps and a bit of clapping and whooping (I did not whoop, or indeed clap, due to my ingrained Bri sh s ff upper lippedness). We then ran up and down the room jump-turning at each end and sprin ng across. It is probable we did yet more stuff a er this but by now I’ve completely forgo en the precise details. Let it be said though that my body was definitely a acked and so will yours be if you should go to this class. It is perfect for overall func onal fitness with an emphasis on cardio and giving every part of you a thorough workout. Including your brain if you’re as bad at coordina on and choreography as I am. There are plenty of BODYATTACK classes at The Circle at all mes throughout the day and with various instructors so you’ll be able to find the perfect class for you. For more details about my life in exercise please visit my blog “IMFitHove”. Thanks, isobelmuir@hotmail.com

Recompose and click. Before you know it you've le your daily worries behind. Embracing a mindful approach to photography has been so important in my life. Being diagnosed with Crohn’s – an incurable life-long illness - brought many challenges, including a change of career from office work to become a landscape photographer. The peace it brings me is something I hope viewers can also enjoy from my photographic art. To unlock your crea vity and learn how your camera really works – contact me for 1:1 and group lessons on 07920 038501. Or visit www.mgoddard.co.uk to view and purchase photos from Hove, Brighton and Sussex. Use code WESTHOVE20 at Checkout for 20% off all prints. Well, here's a way to beat those blues, get outdoors and use a mindfulness approach to photography, for happiness and improved mental health. Read on for how to get started. If you're not familiar with mindfulness - it's a form of everyday medita on where you remove distrac ons and become fully present in the moment. Call it a micro holiday for body and brain! 1. Equipment The most important thing is to have a camera with you! Plan a me to head out with a camera, or use your phone camera to make it a daily rou ne. 2. Relax and be in the moment Pop your phone on silent and take a deep calming breath. Look around. What catches your eye? Colours reflec ng off the clouds, interes ng shadows, the sway of a tree in the breeze? Tip: Nature's proven to improve mental and overall health, but mindfulness photography works equally well in and around town. Truly stop and look around - you'll be surprised how much more you see! 3. Take the photo Walk around the subject that caught your eye, look for different angles and perspec ves, and carefully observe how the elements interact. No ce what you previously had not.

Nathalie’s monthly health Ɵp…

THE ART OF DOING NOTHING! Have you ever wondered why – when you are on holiday – some or all of your health issues and niggles (and lots of gut pain) seem to disappear or improve? And why should all the symptoms suddenly reappear the moment you get back home? Can this holiday glow, relaxa on and wellness really be replicated at home? For some, it might take some focus and effort, but many are successfully doing just that – or rather – being that rather than doing… And the results are worth it: a healthier, happier, more relaxed you. Here are some ideas to help you do...nothing: 29 Keep food simple: vary what you eat over a week, but keep each meal simple: keep to one protein, two or three vegetables, one carbohydrate and…no pudding? You and your wallet will feel much lighter. Go ‘offline’: switch off all phones/devices and be unreachable for a while. ‘Be’ in the moment: train yourself to be more present in your body, your immediate environment and just ‘be’ there for a minute or an hour (it gets easier with me).

Do one thing at a me. This is harder than it seems: just do one thing exclusively. If you’re reading, ea ng, or listening to music, just do that. Fully. Breathe more: to help you with all of the above, regularly breathe deeply into your lower abdomen. The headless chicken will finally stop.

HALLOWEEN IN STONEHAM PARK Our Halloween Fes val in Stoneham Park is on Saturday 26th October. The play street started in September and an agreement with the council is in place for one year. The success of the play street will be assessed on an on-going basis. Anyone needing to leave or access their home via car during this period is s ll able to do so. Ka e Mintram, one of the organisers said: “It’s been such a wonderful experience seeing neighbours of all ages ge ng to know each other, playing games together and having a safe space to sit out in front of their homes and enjoy the street they live in.” If you would like to organise a play street in your road, you can find advice on the council website.

Like previous years, we will be carving pumpkins in the park. What you do is pick up a pumpkin (as ever we are grateful to local supermarkets for dona ng these), get some of the tools from our carving sets, and hew your own Halloween lantern. It is always great fun and, for parents, all of the mess stays in the park and not at your lovely, clean home! David Jarvis will be pu ng on another Halloween show, an immersive haunted maze with cobwebs, dry ice mist, a scary soundtrack and other surprises. It promises to be the second scariest thing this Halloween. Richard Hearnden

Great news if you fancy a walk in the countryside...

NEW BRIDLEWAY IN HOVE A new bridleway in Hove has opened up a “missing link” in the city’s footpath network, giving countryside access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The new path links rights of way on Benfield Hill and the New Barn Farm area with the Dyke Railway trail and beyond. The opportunity to open the path arose a er West Hove Golf Club approached the South Downs Na onal Park Authority for planning permission for an acous c bund, buffering the course from the A27. Crea ng the new bridleway and opening up the 35 surrounding access land was one of the planning condi ons. Cllr Anne Pissaridou, chair of the council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Commi ee, said: “I am delighted that by working in partnership with the Na onal Park Authority and West Hove Golf Club we have been able to open this missing link and create an a rac ve and high quality east-west route, north of the A27, for cyclists, horse riders and walkers.”

News from the council...

PLANS FOR KNOLL HOUSE... A proposal to change the kind of care delivered at Brighton & Hove City Council’s Knoll House adult social care centre in Ingram Crescent West was considered at a mee ng of the city’s Health and Wellbeing Board on 10 September. Knoll House is expected to become available soon for new council services. The changing needs of the city’s residents mean there is now a focus on priori sing mental health services. The plan is for Knoll House to deliver either: lower level supported accommoda on for younger adults with mental health needs to help them live more independently; or accommoda on for young people with higher37 levels of mental health needs but who do not require hospital treatment. Knoll House, along with Craven Vale in Brighton, currently delivers therapy and rehabilita on services for older people coming out of hospital with lower level needs. The nursing care at both centres was un l recently provided by the local NHS. But health and social care needs are changing, with more and more people leaving hospital with high levels of complex needs and needing nursing care 24-7; and

a big increase in the number of younger adults with mental health needs who need residen al care. Knoll House and Craven Vale are not best placed to deliver these higher levels of care. So earlier this year the NHS told the council it was going to stop delivering nursing care at the centres, and deliver their rehabilita on services in other ways. The NHS have assured the council there will be no reduc on in the capacity or quality of their rehabilita on services. Consulta on is underway with staff on plans to merge the two services and consolidate them into a single centre, offering respite care and suppor ng people with less complex needs who no longer need hospital care but are not yet well enough to move home. Craven Vale is the preferred site for this because it is much nearer to the Royal Sussex County Hospital. It is hoped that the merger and move to Craven Vale will be completed by the beginning of October. The Health and Wellbeing Board has given the goahead for full business cases to be worked up for the two proposed op ons for Knoll House. These will be brought back to the Board in January for a decision on a preferred way forward. The Board also asked for a further report detailing the capacity of the Clinical Commissioning Group to meet the needs of people who require more intensive and specialist nursing care following hospital discharge, as well as informa on on the impact of any new facili es being based outside Brighton & Hove.
