View from an Armchair Colin Crouch

O

nce upon a time, Oh Best Beloved, Bognor’s hospital had a restaurant. It used to be full of people eating and talking and being happy. Last week it had one poor dinner lady trying to heat up chips, point to tea bags, and ring up the till. I was so sad I asked for a Steak Slice. I thought it would be a slice of steak, but I’m too old to know any better. These days a Slice is a sort of squashed square pie filled with mashed-up meat, possibly recycled from the 4.30 at Fontwell Park. I can’t keep up with today’s terminology. I’m not really sure what a Tablet is, though I know you shouldn’t swallow one. Meggings? Are they really underpants worn by men pretending they’re overpants? And Onesies? I’m certain that in 1940 if Winston Churchill had called his wartime Siren Suit a Onesie, Hitler would have whipped his army across the Channel while we were still rolling about on the lino with laughter. Not that the twentieth century was particularly good at naming things. I never understood why we had to call a thing stuffed with wires a Wireless. We used to play records on a Gramophone, but I couldn’t see any connection with either a telephone or a telegram. And what on earth was Vanishing Cream? I used to puzzle over Vanishing Cream. Desperate Dan in The Dandy once used it to make himself invisible, but even though at that time I was convinced a stork had flown my baby brother in on a gooseberry bush, I wasn’t fooled. All the same, in my mum’s cosmetics armoury it was a vital component. When the other week in Rose Green I asked a young shop assistant for it, I got a blank look. She thought for a while and then suggested I needed something called “moisturiser”. Long after I had learned the more important facts of life, I found out the truth about Vanishing Cream. To make themselves beautiful Ladies used creams, which they called Cold Creams. Because, I suppose, they weren’t hot. But they were greasy and shiny and - fate worse than death - could make a lady look s-w-e-a-t-y. Fortunately, however, rocket scientists they’d just built the first steam locomotive, but not yet got round to sending Armstrong to the moon - invented a water-based unguent that disappeared into the skin. Vanishing Cream. Of course. But wait! Far from being used to “preserve the freshness and intensify the beautiful natural colour of the skin” (as this Erasmic Vanishing ad claims for Erasmic Vanishing Cream), it was mostly used to help a girl’s powder stick on. It Cream Preserves the freshness and intensifies was in fact the most reliable way of saving her the beautiful natural colour of the skin. from - ugh! - having a shiny nose. 6

Ken Rimell In her purpose built studio at the bottom of her neat Aldwick garden, Lydia Foster makes silver jewellery. Hour after hour she pours over delicate silver-work while gentle music wafts from a nearby radio. She is not alone for, sitting by her side for most of the day is Bee, her adorable young canine friend. Lydia and her husband have three children, her job in Human Resources left her with a yearning to do something creative. Sharing his wife’s enthusiasm to break away from the tedium he bought her a present, a course at West Dean College under Sarah McRea in the art of making silver jewellery. Realising that this was her life from now on she left the security of a steady job and with their children grown up she was now able to do something she had always secretly yearned. Now working with silver is not something that can be picked up easily, Lydia required a further two years training this time at Northbrook College Worthing where specialist techniques were taught and soon she was able to hone silver masterpieces. With the skills she had now been taught even better pieces were being formed by her delicate hands and slowly her growing clientele, hearing about her, were snapping up her work. I went along to see her during the recent Chichester Art Trail event. An event each spring, where over 100 West Sussex artists throw open their studios in a bid to not only sell items, but to show in general how much creative talent we have here in the south. This being Lydia’s first Chichester Art Trail she was up early and in her studio where I found her hard at work pausing for just a few moments to chat over a cup of coffee, kindly provided by her husband Jon. She told me how much she enjoys what she’s now doing. "Determined to create specialist pieces can sometimes be very demanding, but I enjoy the challenge and so far I’m pleased with the results." Her studio is worthy of comment. Almost hidden at the bottom of their garden, and painted a lovely light green it blends beautifully with its surroundings. It arrived in a big lorry as a pack product. Firstly it had to be gently and cleverly off loaded and slowly manoeuvred down the narrow side of their house to the bottom of the family patch and erected. Fully insulated it's quite comfortable and easy for someone to spend long hours within its confines. Lydia has one more major show to do this year, a similar Art Trail in Arundel later in the year but her website will show more of her beautiful work and is certainly worth a look. There is no doubt that here in the south we have many very talented artists, their mediums are many and varied. Most, if not all, of the local and major art galleries make a hefty charge to exhibit work and so by way of utilising their own studios they can avoid this outlay. These art establishments do have central bases where the public go in number and can, in some instances, get an artist initial acclaim but the feedback I got from one such gallery was not good...so in my view its best left to the artists own discretion.

Roger Burgess Things to look for in July 2013 Hopefully this summer we will see more of the Sun so it’s a good time to look at the sun and see what it does. NEVER LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE SUN it will damage your eyes. The Sun is by far the largest object in the solar system. It contains more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System (Jupiter contains most of the rest). It is often said that the Sun is an "ordinary" star. That's true in the sense that there are many others similar to it. But there are many more smaller stars than larger ones; the Sun is in the top 10% by mass. The median size of stars in our galaxy is probably less than half the mass of the Sun. The Sun is personified in many mythologies: the Greeks called it Helios and the Romans called it Sol. The Sun is, at present, about 70% hydrogen and 28% helium by mass everything else ("metals") amounts to less than 2%. This changes slowly over time as the Sun converts hydrogen to helium in its core.

Taken with a white light filter by Roger Burgess 6 May 2013 showing just 1 sunspot

The Sun's power (about 386 billion billion megawatts) is produced by nuclear fusion reactions. Each second about 700,000,000 tons of hydrogen are converted to about 695,000,000 tons of helium and 5,000,000 tons (=3.86e33 ergs) of energy in the form of gamma rays. As it travels out toward the surface, the energy is continuously absorbed and re-emitted at lower and lower temperatures so that by the time it reaches the surface, it is primarily visible light. For the last 20% of the way to the surface the energy is carried more by convection than by radiation. The surface of the Sun, called the photosphere, is at a temperature of about 5800 K (K=Kelvin = [° C] + 273.15). Sunspots are "cool" regions, only 3800 K (they look dark only by comparison with the surrounding regions). Sunspots can be very large, as much as 50,000 km in diameter. Sunspots are caused by complicated and not very well understood interactions with the Sun's magnetic field. Spectacular loops and prominences are often visible on the Sun's limb (left). Prominences are the main source of coronal mass ejections the cause of auroras. To see these prominences an H-Alpha filter is needed. In addition to heat and light, the Sun also emits a low density stream of charged particles (mostly electrons and protons) known as the solar wind which propagates throughout the solar system at about 450 km/sec. The solar wind and the much higher energy particles ejected by solar flares can have dramatic effects on the Earth ranging from power line surges to radio interference to the beautiful aurora borealis. Recent data from the spacecraft Ulysses show that during the minimum of the solar cycle the solar wind emanating from the Polar Regions flows at nearly double the rate, 750 kilometres per second, than it does at lower latitudes. The composition of the solar wind also appears to differ in the Polar Regions. During the solar maximum, however, the solar wind moves at an intermediate speed. 20 20

A Look into the Past - Sylvia Endacott As we drive around the town, how many people realise the significance of Hotham Park. I tend to think of the park as being the back garden of the founder of the town. It was in 1787 that Sir Richard Hotham came to settle in the town from Merton in Surrey and he decided to build his home within fields and a wooded area. On January 18th in 1787 there was recorded in the South Bersted Parish register, by the Rev. Thomas Durnford, the following, ‘The first foundation stone of a Public Bathing Place at Bognor in the Parish of Berstead was laid by Sir Richard Hotham Knt. at the house called by the name of The Lodge.’ The foundation stone was for Bognor Lodge which was demolished in 1937. Hotham Park House ( Chapel House as it was originally) was built to the north of Bognor Lodge in the early 1790’s. From the front of this house head had an open vista to the sea. Chapel House, an elaborate building, was built by Sir Richard Hotham as his own residence. Thus his arrival and buildings marked the foundation of our seaside resort as we know it today. Sir Richard was to build numerous premises to which he hoped to attract Royalty to reside in this new resort on the south coast of England, he wanted Bognor to rival Brighton, however this did not occur until after his death in 1799. Over the years the house and grounds have been developed by the various owners into an area which was once referred to as a second Kew Gardens. Until the start of the Second World War it was still in private ownership and therefore remained a secret place to the majority of local residents. Eventually, in 1947, the gardens were opened to the public and renamed Hotham Park. By the end of 1950 Pets Corner had been created and within five years over 1,106,000 people had visited this newly established venture. This 5½-acre site in the Park contained a wide number of animals, ranging from pigs to ducks, Spanish sheep to Chinese bantams. Families of animals were also on display within their own detached houses and grounds. Over the years the name changed to Zootopia and finally Rainbow’s End. In recent years Hotham Park has had over £2.2 million of Heritage Lottery funding, to update and improve the area vacated by Rainbows End which has now been returned within the main park. Today Hotham Park has open vistas, new gardens and flowerbeds with an upgraded boating lake. It is a pleasure to sit with the family and have a cup of tea whilst watching the train as it takes its passengers on its circular route in and out of the trees, look for doves and squirrels that play around the trees. There are numerous events staged by various organisations, especially the Hotham Park Heritage Trust who organise the very popular annual Country Fair in August. So why not take time to visit the Park and have an enjoyable stroll through what was once Sir Richard Hotham’s back garden.

Pollards The Tree Space

Before we became so good at making things from metal and plastic, trees were managed for maximum usefulness. A tree cut down to a stump would not only sprout useful poles and animal fodder, it would live longer, grow stronger. It was coppiced.. Since grazing beasts could destroy low-growing young shoots, some trees were pollarded - allowed to grow high enough to be out-of-reach to cattle and deer, then cut back to produce shoots and leaves.

In the 21st century we have changed our approach. We plant big trees because they are good to look at, then find they crowd out our living space. We pollard them to make them fit. Done hastily and crudely, a tree is reduced to a bunch of maimed stumps, as in the picture on the right. It is one of the avenue of limes planted in the pavements of Nyewood Lane. In the picture above, one of those pollards stands in front of a lime lucky enough to be on the other side of the fence - allowed to grow unchecked on a corner of the town’s football pitch.

Farm Hill This slightly more demanding walk starts high up on the Downs and goes down fairly steeply to the Sutton road on the north side. There is also a steady climb up that may necessitate walking through water flowing down the track. We suggest that you wear suitable footwear. St Mary the Virgin Church Upwaltham is mentioned in the Doomsday book, it dates from the 12thC and is set back from the road on the left as you head to Duncton

Length 5.5 km (3½ mls) Time 2½ hours Start Point SU96653 OS Map Explorer 121 Arundel & Pulborough Worthing & Bognor Regis

The Route Just over a mile after passing Upwaltham Church on the A 285 the road will bear to the left and there is parking for two or three cars off the road on the right. (Dog Kennel Cottages.) Take the marked public way R. Follow this track for approx 700m until you reach a signpost with an information board. Continue ahead along the public way as the track makes its way downhill to reach a small road. This track is chalky and can be slippery if wet. At the road turn R and follow the road for approx 900m until to come to a signpost marked Sutton and Barlavington. Take the no through road R and follow this to a bend, take the bridleway R and start to go uphill. It is along this track that you may find water flowing in a stream down the centre of the track. 32

Continue steadily uphill for approx 1.1 km, keeping left at the large beech tree, until you reach a finger post; take the bridleway R. Follow this up around a gate and it will pass through an avenue of beech trees where if you are lucky you may see orchids in the grass. At the next gate stop and admire the wonderful views to the north, then cross the field to reach the fingerpost and information board you saw on the way out. Turn L and walk back to the car.

Graham’s Brent Lodge Diary – Early Summer I am a trifle thrown with this diary! Laura tells me that the July and August editions of Sussex Views are to be amalgamated, and can I please have my article in by early June..? Being the reasonable, affable, cove that I am, I, of course, said "Yes".. After the coldest Spring for 50 years, and with me ‘applying fingers to keyboard’ at the beginning of June, I think that this piece is likely to be part reportage and part anticipation! Thank You so much to everyone who came to our ‘Spring Into Life’ event at the beginning of May. It was an ambitious effort by Brent Lodge to entertain, and raise much needed funds. The idea of inviting outside traders and relocating activities around the grounds was a great success, making this event the best ever ! Those of you who couldn't make it do try and come to our next event. Is a 3 day bash on August 24st, 25th and 26th. YOUR local wildlife needs YOUR support! Talking of a cold Spring, there has been a noticeable effect on the number of patients coming through our doors at Brent Lodge – a distinctly slower intake. It is beginning to gather momentum now though. Three of the cutest little tawny owl chicks, who are now progressing well. I saw them a couple of days ago, and they were making tweetie noises, and looking very alert. They will soon go to one of the outside aviaries, prior to release when they have grown a bit ! Our little badger, Brock, or should I say Brockina (my name for her – not official!) is growing rapidly, she is fast becoming quite a celebrity! The possibility that, if the current cull is eventually extended to Sussex, and she is by that time in the wild, she could be shot, doesn’t bear thinking about.. Do you recall the problem we had when we were losing hedgehogs last autumn to an unidentified illness? Thankfully, researchers came up with the answer which was an unpronounceable infection. This can be controlled, fortunately, by a household-name preparation with a specific constituent agent, available over the counter! We now know what to look out for, and how to deal with it, but watchfulness is the key-word. One of the effects of the delayed Spring has been the late stirring of hibernators. If they sleep for too long, their situation can become a bit dicey, as there is the risk of them running short of body fat. We have already noted the reduced numbers of hedgehogs. A woman who lives near Bognor, told me that her garden plants were being badly damaged by slugs, caused by a combination of a very wet 2012 and reduced hog numbers, one of the slugs’ main predators. Please avoid putting down slug pellets if at all possible, some types can be toxic for hedgehogs and household pets, as well as slugs. If you must use them, please do your research. A final delightful little story – we have a pair of blackbirds nesting in the engine bay of our van! Perhaps they are reassured that by being within the confines of the hospital, they will be well cared for. This of course means that our van is now off the road until Mr and Mrs Blackbird have completed their parental duties. At the time of writing, the nest contains 3 eggs. Let us hope that when the chicks hatch they won’t be coughing at the smell of diesel! We are so grateful to the staff at Panther Truck Rental of Chichester, they sponsor our current van, and have very kindly lent us another one letstart us have ourp/m owninc. back! Lot, guys!

Kithurst Hill

This route takes us across open fields and around small wooded areas, with panoramic views across the open Downs from the start. The day we visited we enjoyed a wildlife walk as a Red Kite with its forked tail soared above us, hares tore across an open field and we heard skylarks, famous for their distinctive flight song, we hope you are as lucky.

Length 8.2km (5mls) Longer walk 6.2 km (3¾ mls) Shorter walk Time 2½ hours for longer walk Start Point TQ 071125 OS Map Explorer 121 Arundel & Pulborough Worthing & Bognor Regis

The Route Follow the B2139 through Amberley towards Storrington. After approx 2¾ miles look out for Springhead Farm on the left and very soon after that there is a turning on the right marked No Through Road to Kithurst Hill. Take this road and make your way to the top of the hill. The road winds its way up fairly steeply until you reach the car park at the top. With your back to the car park turn L onto The South Downs Way. Follow this for approx 1.7 km (1 ml) until you reach another car park at Chantry Post. Take the first bridleway R, marked Lee Farm, through the gate and ahead downhill along the track. This passes through fields until it reaches a road. Go through the gate at the bottom and take the bridleway ahead along the road. This starts to go gently uphill to Lee Farm. When you reach a pair of semi-detached cottages there is a marked bridleway R which you should take for the shorter walk. Follow this back to the car. 76

BOGNOR REGIS TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB Monthly Round Up

Bognor Regis Town's season ended with defeat in the Sussex Senior Cup Final - and the Rocks management felt they were well-beaten by a superior team as they lost 4-0 to Brighton’s development squad at the Amex. A hat-trick by Toby Agdestein and a goal from ex-Nyewood Lane loanee George Barker killed off any hopes the Rocks could cause an upset against a host side who may have been young but included a number of players with Seagulls firstteam experience. It was the same size of defeat the Rocks suffered to Brighton’s development side at Eastbourne in the 2010 final. There were no complaints afterwards from the Rocks bosses, who said their own young players could learn a lot from the experience and use it to spur themselves to greater things. They lost the battle on the pitch but certainly won off it - with close to 1,500 Rocks fans among the crowd of 2,435 making themselves heard from start to finish and giving their side a great ovation at the end despite the scoreline. Manager Jamie Howell said: “We conducted ourselves well but came up against a very, very good football team. We have worked hard with our boys but they have not come up against anything like this before today.” The match also proved to be the last appearance in a Rocks shirt for Craig Stoner who announced his retirement shortly afterwards. The popular goalkeeper enjoyed two spells with the club, having first joined in 2001 and overall made nearly 500 appearances. Looking forward, the club are selling season tickets for the 2013/14 season in the Ryman Premier, with the campaign starting on August 10th. Details of how to purchase a season ticket can be found on the club's website www.therocks.co.uk Beforehand, the club have announced a number of pre-season friendlies which include the visit of Portsmouth's first team to Nyewood Lane on Saturday 13th July (kick-off 2.00pm).
