WELCOME TO THE WEST HOVE DIRECTORY It’s time for most people to go back to work or school (although there are some of us who haven’t been away!) There’s plenty going on in September if you do have some free time, though. We are very excited about the first ever LagoonFest on 8th September. There are also two weekends of Heritage Open Days, the start of the annual Older People’s Festival, and the Brighton & Hove Triathlon, so make the most of the last days of the mild weather. To top off all this, there will be giant snails arriving on our streets!

Meet Hove Museum’s Development Manager...

LOCAL PERSON – JULIA BASNETT Julia Basnett lives in Brighton but feels like West Hove is her second home. She is the Development Manager at Hove Museum. How long have you worked at Hove Museum? About five years I think, in different roles. What are the museum’s main attractions, for people who have never visited? Hove is the home of the moving image; much of the pioneering work in film work was carried out in the area. The museum has a gallery dedicated to these pioneers and the methods and equipment they developed. The earliest films ever made are shown. The museum5also displays contemporary craft of the South East Craft Collection. As well as this there is a gallery dedicated to toys from old to new, a local history gallery and a paintings gallery. Have you got any new exhibitions coming up? In September we will be displaying the final show of the University of Brighton’s MA Craft students. This will be up for seven weeks and will be followed by Storyland. This exhibition features the magical fairy tale work of


Doors and Conservatories

Fabula, an illustration collective, and an advent calendar of wintery items from the collections. We will unveil a new item each day! The café sadly had to close last year. We hear there may be an occasional pop-up café? Yes. We are happy that we will be able to pilot a pop up café on each activity day of the October half term. Parents and carers on these activity days really miss the café as it means they can take a break, stay in the museum longer and feed the kids!

What plans are there for the future of Hove Museum? We are very keen to develop Hove Museum as a local amenity. We are in a new phase of funding and are working on developing Hove Museum as a museum of making. In the first instance we will centre this around the craft collections as a way of providing activities for many different groups of people, especially from the local area and to work with different sections of the community. Working with The University of Brighton is high on the agenda, to bring cutting edge art and craft exhibitions to the museum. For more information, visit: brightonmuseums.org.uk/hove

Later in the year we will be auctioning fabulous donations from Norman Cook and David Walliams, plus Cassette Lord’s artwork from LagoonFest. The purpose of LagoonFest is to provide a fun day out for users of Hove Lagoon and to raise funds for a planting scheme. The landscaping has been designed by Nicholas Dexter and the planting by Nigel Bowcock of Acre Landscapes, who are volunteers. They will be available at LagoonFest to provide more information. It will require match funding and will be FoHL’s next big project. We will consult widely before taking decisions. Please do join us!

Look out for a snail near you...

SNAILSPACE ARRIVES... 50 giant snails, individually decorated by different artists, and over 50 junior snails painted by local schoolchildren, will be located all over the city, sponsored by local businesses. #BeMoreSnail is the motto of Snailspace, which is being organised by Martlets Hospice in conjunction with Wild in Art. The idea behind #BeMoreSnail is to 11 encourage people to slow down, enjoy the moment and spend more time with the people they love. It resonates with the philosophy behind the life-changing care provided by the hospice, and, at the end of the event, the sculptures will be auctioned off to raise money for it. The event has the backing of some of the city’s celebrities. Superstar DJ Norman Cook, AKA Fatboy Slim, will

have his very own snail designed by street artist Cassette Lord. Best-selling crime author Peter James will have a snail based on his highly acclaimed Roy Grace series and popular vlogger and boyfriend of Zoella, Alfie Deyes, will also have a giant snail on the route. A comprehensive map and an interactive app will also support the sculpture hunt. The app will encourage visitors to ‘bag’ as many sculptures as possible by tracking how many snails they have found, enable them to vote for their favourites, and unlock special rewards each time a sculpture is found. The map will be available on the Snailspace website, at Martlets shops across the city and at Churchill Square. There will also be a series of special events during the nine weeks. On Friday 12th October Martlets are organising a Snailway Safari, a sponsored walk with a difference. For one night only the Snailway will become an evening spectacular, with sights, surprises and entertainment along the way. Then, on Oct 19th there will be a citywide #BeMoreSnail day, when Martlets will challenge people to do something which resonates with the idea of being more mindful. Snails will be placed at some of the locations used for the Snowdogs, and a few new locations have been added, including Stoneham Park and George Street. All will be revealed on 15th September! For more information and to keep up to date with all details of the campaign, visit: www.snailspacebrighton.co.uk or follow @snailspacebh on social media.

A chance to visit new places...

HERITAGE OPEN DAYS Heritage Open Days is England’s largest festival of history and culture. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors to celebrate their heritage, community and history. It’s your chance to see hidden places and try out new experiences – and it’s all FREE. This year’s Heritage Open Days will be 6-9 and 13-16 September. St Leonard’s Church will be open on 8th September, from 11am to 4pm. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the death of Sir Charles Aubrey Smith, the only Test cricketer to have his name on a star in Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, whose ashes lie in the churchyard. Thanks to Sussex County Cricket Club, the church will have a small display of items relating to him. To mark the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, the church will also be looking at women with a local link who have made a difference, and on the centenary of the end of the Great War, 13they will revisit their previous display about those recorded on their Roll of Honour for World War One. You can also visit the Secret Garden behind the church on 8th September between 11am and 2pm. As well as a vegetable garden, you will see a wildlife haven with a pond; bird and bat boxes; honey bees; bumble bees; butterflies; dragonflies; frogs; a bug hotel and a wormery. There will be demonstrations of the Foredown Tower Camera Obscura (Foredown Road, Portslade) on Thursday 13th (11am, 12pm, 1pm) and Saturday 15th September



Sir Charles Aubrey Smith

(11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm), no booking required. This iconic Edwardian water tower has featured a camera obscura since 1991 – the largest in the South-East. A lens at the summit of the converted tower projects views of the surroundings onto a convex dish.

Local news...

FRIENDS OF STONEHAM PARK Pride celebrates equality and inclusivity so well. The people of this city are rightly proud of its reputation as a tolerant and welcoming place. Our parks and open spaces in this great city have to be inclusive places, too. But are they as good at showing equality as they ought to be? Are our parks accessible to wheelchair users, to the blind and partially sighted, to the elderly and infirm? Should a park not be equally inclusive of very young children as well as teenagers? How does one balance the needs of boisterous kids and energetic new mothers with those practising the silent and contemplative art of t’ai chi, as I have often spotted by the pigs’ sculpture in Stoneham Park? How does the park succeed in balancing the needs of its visitors with the needs and sensitivities of residents facing its boundaries? The best way to balance these competing interests is to come along to our meetings, or at least the next one. I think you would enjoy it. They only last 90 minutes and you might make some new friends. So why not come to our next meeting at 7.30 on Monday, 17 September, in the garden of the George Payne pub? See you there, I hope.

Sophie Sheinwald tells us about her passion for photographing dogs...


SOPHIE SHEINWALD PHOTOGRAPHY What do you most like about living in Brighton & Hove? What I love is that there’s about two degrees of separation when I meet people out and about. Despite being a city, Brighton & Hove offers a real sense of connection and community. We see you are a photographer specialising in dog photography... what do you like most about working with dogs? 21 I’ve been an established photographer since 2011, but those who know me know I’m mad about dogs. My obsession became greater recently since borrowing dogs, so I decided to officially offer dog photography services. I plan to create tangible artwork for people to celebrate this unique fluffy relationship. Dogs play a vital role in people’s lives. I love how their unconditional love provides a much needed connection with humans. I started a ‘Street Dog’ photography project in Manhattan nine years ago which rolled out a series of exhibitions called ‘8 Reasons I Ought to Get a Dog’ - it was a giggle and I may do it again.

What is the biggest challenge when photographing dogs? With many dogs it’s their unpredictability. For a photo shoot, it’s ideal for me to know about the dog’s personality and characteristics. I’ve been getting a bit of help from dog trainer Lorna of Eli Manoeuvres. She helps me tap into the human-canine relationship. What would a typical shoot consist of? Initially, I like to establish the lifestyle and interests of the dog and family, this directs the style and location of the shoot. The relationship people have with their

pets is unique, so there is no typical shoot - it’s a collaboration of ideas worked out with the owners. A shoot can go from artistically dramatic - the studio setting - to casual and fun out and about. I’m all about the visual story and I’ve decided to offer some packages with a dog story book - I’m excited about that! The relationship with pets is a treasured one, having that encapsulated with photography is wonderful. You said you borrow dogs but will you ever get a dog of your own? One day I’ll probably get a dog but in the meantime I’m happy to play aunty! Is there somewhere we can see your work? Yes, my website sophiesheinwald.com with my dog gallery and sophie_snap on Instagram. Also I have recently brought back to life my ‘8 Reasons Why I Ought to get a Dog’ Facebook page and invite all dog lovers to contribute their dog stories.

Nathalie’s monthly health tip…

IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH SPAN Some may call the results from a recent OBH (Outcomes Based Healthcare) report deliberately fear-mongering, but facts are facts: one fifth of all Britons are expected to suffer from long-term health problems by the age of 30. The study calculated people’s health span by using data from GPs and hospitals, and included diseases such as asthma, cancer, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. So what can you do right now to make a difference to your health? 1. Take responsibility: Recognise that the health you have isn’t a matter of ‘bad luck’ – it’s mostly down to the choices you make every day. 2. Take stock: Take an objective look at what you feel is working and what isn’t. Are you sleeping with the TV on? ‘Pushing’ yourself at the gym so you can eat any ‘naughty’ foods you please? 29 3. Take charge! Set three goals in easy-to-implement chunks of three months. What do you want to achieve to improve your health in the next 90 days? List specific actions you can take daily towards these goals. Small changes can bring the biggest transformation ultimately. 4. Take a deep breath: From my nine years of experience as a Nutritional Therapist and Health Coach, my biggest take-away is this: stress is the biggest cause of all ills. So slow down. Everything. You’ll be far more efficient, clearer-minded and you’ll enjoy life more – for longer.

rear. The community facilities would be open to all. The existing buildings on the site would be demolished. The city’s Jewish population has fallen in recent years and the existing buildings on the site are becoming increasingly costly to maintain as a result of their age. The developers say in their Planning Statement: “This development is aimed at retaining and attracting young families to the area to secure the future of the Jewish community in the city.” The funding for the development would be made available by the Bloom Foundation, chaired by Tony Bloom who also chairs Brighton & Hove Albion FC. Hundreds of comments have been received by the council. Many of the synagogue’s neighbours have objected to the proposals – the size of the buildings is the main objection. There are also concerns about overlooking and overshadowing. However there have been many comments of support, saying that the development will enhance the quality of life of the Jewish community. The deadline for determination of the application is 4th October. To see the plans, visit planningapps.brightonhove.gov.uk and search for BH2018/02126.

Update from your Local Action Team...

NEWS FROM THE WEST HOVE FORUM Healthy Neighbourhood Fund Grants The West Hove Forum now has £3,000 to spend from the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund. Small, not-forprofit community groups in West Hove can bid for up to £500 to spend on a project with a clear health outcome – please email us at westhoveforum@ gmail.com if you’d like an application form (or phone 07809 830029). The deadline for completed applications is 30th September. Travellers on Hove Lawns At our last meeting at the end of July, our local PCSOs were questioned about the issue of unauthorised encampments on the Western Lawns, next to the King Alfred Leisure Centre car park. Posts at the edge of the lawn had been removed; however there

Hove Junior School Swimming Pool

Pavement Parking on Portland Road A Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) banning pavement parking in part of Portland Road (from Wish Park Surgery to St Peter’s Church) was introduced on 23rd July. It has already produced its first booking, so Wish ward councillors Garry Peltzer Dunn and Robert Nemeth believe it has been a success. They have asked for a report on enforcement. Other Forum members commented that the situation had greatly improved since its introduction.

The future of the swimming pool at Hove Junior School is uncertain. Five years ago £27,000 was raised to maintain it. West Hove Infant School are no longer using the pool and the junior school now have a dilemma over whether to try to keep it going – swimming is part of the curriculum that junior schools have to follow.

West Hove Forum meetings are attended by ward councillors and a wide range of community representatives. The next meeting will be at 7pm on Wednesday 26th September, venue to be confirmed. If you would like to attend on behalf of a group or business, please email westhoveforum@gmail.com.

was no evidence against a specific person and trespass is now only a civil offence. PCSO Jodie Sullivan told the meeting that the police are working with the council’s Traveller Liaison Team to address the problem. Since our meeting, some blocks have been put in place on the edge of this lawn, including very large pieces of tree and concrete cubes, which should restrict access by caravans and other vehicles.

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

A great sporting event...



One in every two men will have a health problem with their prostate at some stage of their lives and one in eight men will develop prostate cancer. PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) is a simple blood test that measures the amount of antigen, produced by the prostate, entering the blood. It is not a direct test for cancer; a high reading should trigger further tests. Some clinicians believe all men over 50 should know their PSA and have yearly tests. The Prostate Cancer Support Organisation (PCaSO) are planning an all-day free test event in Hove in partnership with the Brighton Lions, who are funding the event, 37 for men aged between 45 and 80 at: Bishop Hannington Church, Nevill Avenue, on Saturday 29th September 2018 The testing will be conducted by trained phlebotomists taking blood from a vein in the arm; this will be analysed and the result posted to men within 7 to 10 days.

This team of volunteers provides a lifesaving service…

BRIGHTON & HOVE COMMUNITY FIRST RESPONDERS If you’ve ever called 999 for an ambulance, and a red uniform has arrived ahead of the familiar crews in green, you may not have realized that you’ve been attended to by a volunteer Community First Responder, working on behalf of the Ambulance Service. Launched in September 2013 to provide a lifesaving service to our local community, the Brighton and Hove Community First Responder scheme now attends over 1,000 emergency calls a year including 39 dozens of cardiac arrests. The small team of volunteers have provided nearly 10,000 hours of voluntary cover in the last 12 months. First Responders are trained by the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust (SECAmb) and work under their control. Their volunteers go through an extensive application process, before attending a five day training course, which focuses on the treatment of cardiac arrest, diabetic emergencies, strokes, respiratory and cardiac conditions, minor trauma, breathing difficulties and allergic reactions. Volunteers ‘book on’ with SECAmb’s control room and then if any of these ‘category A’ calls are received within three miles of their homes, they are dispatched at the same time as the ambulance. With ambulances often having to be deployed from across the city, or worse, it means the volunteer crews can often arrive ahead of the professional crew. This allows them to start treatment, and reassure the patient and their family. In the case of a cardiac arrest, this is literally the difference between life and death. There have been numerous examples of CFR volunteers being on

scene at the highest priority calls, several minutes before the SECAmb crew. Given that, in a cardiac arrest, your chance of survival falls by 15% for every minute a defib is delayed, this really is a life-saving service. The Brighton and Hove team covers an area stretching from Shoreham to Rottingdean. They train regularly as a team and volunteers all spend time on shift with full time crews too, to build experience and confidence. The team is responsible for all of its own fundraising and needs to raise around £10,000 a year to keep them on the road. To find out more, to volunteer or to help with fundraising, visit www.brightonresponders.org.uk.

City Plan Part 2 will sit alongside the adopted City Plan Part 1 to support the provision of more new low-cost homes, local jobs and transport, and health facilities over the next decade. Take part in the consultation online at 41 www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/cityplan-part2 City Plan Part 2 focuses on good management of development and ensuring good design, high quality and sustainable development. Its housing policies propose tougher controls on houses of multiple occupation (HMOs). The Plan ensures well designed, purpose-built student accommodation and identifies two further sites where it can be built. A total of 85% of housing sites will come forward on brownfield sites and some urban fringe sites have been identified to provide a positive opportunity to build family and affordable homes, as well as create improved and publicly accessible open space. Most of the urban fringe will however be protected as green space and there will be four new local green spaces. Encouraging new and safeguarding community facilities is also at the heart of City Plan Part 2. A new policy will help protect public houses as community benefit. Important shopping parades that provide people with access to facilities like newsagents and pharmacies within walking distance of home are recognised. City Plan Part 2 identifies sites for 3,611 new homes to help meet the city’s housing target. When adopted, it will become part of the formal decision-making process of deciding planning applications. The consultation is open until 13 September.

ROYAL PAVILION SALOON The Saloon at the Royal Pavilion has been restored to its 1823 glory and is to re-open to the public on 8th September.

It has been closed to the public for nearly three years while work has been carried out. George IV commissioned a radiant principal reception room, conveying his regal splendour in gold, silver and crimson. “We are hugely looking forward to re-opening the magnificent Saloon to visitors”, said Janita Bagshawe, Head of Royal Pavilion and Museums. “It is a room of immense historical importance and plays to the original theatricality of King George IV’s vision for the palace.”
