HORSHAM | BILLINGSHURST | HENFIELD | PULBOROUGH | SOUTHWATER | STEYNING | STORRINGTON

Local MPs and council leaders meet in London to discuss housing numbers Jeremy Quin, MP for Horsham, working with Nick Herbert (Arundel and South Downs) and Sir Nicholas Soames (Mid Sussex), arranged an urgent meeting with Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, to discuss views on Housing Numbers and the actions of developers. The meeting was held in the House of Commons on Tuesday, 21 November. The Government Consultation “The Right Homes in the Right Places” set out proposals to reform planning, including standard methods for calculating local authorities’ housing need. It closed on Thursday 9 November and the Government is considering its response. Ray Dawe, Leader of Horsham District Council, and Garry Wall, Leader of Mid Sussex District Council, joined the meeting to put across direct the key points from the Councils’ written responses to the consultation. Concerns were expressed that the proposed standard formula may not reflect the reality of the local housing market. In Horsham’s case, there were specific concerns that the baseline for housing numbers had been inappropriately inflated, which would lead to more housing being required of Horsham than should be the case. Mid Sussex have

concerns that the conclusion of their work, to deliver a local plan and five-year land supply, may be overtaken by the new rules, giving too much power to the developers. Sajid Javid responded and made clear that any new housing targets will provide a base from which to work, not a final number – Councils will still be able to demonstrate particular factors that prevent delivery in their areas. The Minister went on to outline plans, since reinforced by the Budget, to help strengthen Councils’ hands in their dealings with developers. The Government will help Councils require the delivery of new homes, where permission has been granted, but developers are not progressing those plans. Government will also invest an extra £15bn in housing and is bringing forward plans to support small building firms and skills training. There was full agreement that new development must be matched by expanded infrastructure. Jeremy Quin commented: “In common with every MP, I meet constituents who are desperate to get a home locally of their own – to rent or buy. We need to ensure houses get built in the right places and are affordable. However, we must recognise the local constraints on delivering new homes

as well as the need for supporting infrastructure.” Sir Nicholas, taking up the point on infrastructure, said: “If we are to cope with the large number of houses that we are obliged to build the Government must make it possible through judicious and careful use of further infrastructure money to enable this to happen. This is, after all, what sustainable development is all about.” Leader of HDC Ray Dawe commented “Our local MPs and Council Leaders realise the need to deliver new homes for our resi-

dents. Horsham District Council has worked hard to achieve that but we also need to balance this with the new infrastructure and protection of the our local environment. We made this absolutely clear to the Minister”. The Leader of Mid Sussex, Garry Wall said: “I was grateful for the opportunity to talk directly to the Secretary of State about the importance of Government supporting councils and of developers delivering housing once permission has been granted. I think the case for more housing has been made, but we do need support from the

Government to ensure community infrastructure comes too”. Nick Herbert MP said “We all recognise the need for new homes, and our district councils have hugely increased housing numbers in recent years, but we need to ensure that the levels are sustainable and that we have the infrastructure to match. It’s also time that developers were prevented from gaming the system so that they actually build when they have planning permission. welcome the Budget measures that address these issues.”

Southwater Christmas Fest hailed an enormous success

This year’s Southwater Christmas Festival and Christmas Lights Switch On took place on Saturday (25 November) and was an enormous success. Staff and Councillors of Southwater Parish Council would like to say a special thank you to everyone who contributed to make the day such a success. Hundreds of people flocked to Lintot Square for the festival, now in its 12th year. The annual event marked the beginning of the festive period for many locals and was officially opened by the Chairman of Southwater Parish Council, Councilor Graham Watkins. Councilor Watkins was ably assisted by Santa, who arrived in style in a classic Police Jaguar car, and children from the Southwater Academy choir. The day was full of entertainment and spectacle, with performances throughout and there was also the opportunity to meet the stars of this year’s Capitol pantomime, Jack & the Beanstalk, as well as the chance to get a photograph taken with the scrooge of the sea, Captain Jack Sparrow and the beautiful Ice Queen Elsa and Snow Princess Anna. Local shops joined in with the event and many provided complimentary mince pies to their customers. The Square was lined with vendors selling an array of items from Christmas decorations to local Horsham Gin. There were also stalls from Southwater

community groups, business’s and charities. The selection of food and drink was just as varied, with traditional favorites; roasted chestnuts and mulled wine. Of course, no Southwater Festival would be complete without rides, of which there were plenty. Children were kept entertained throughout the day, with spinning teacups and a merry goround, to name just a few of the thrills available. This year’s Christmas lights were switched on by Santa, Captain Jack Sparrow and the Princesses. Beneath the glow of

the beautifully lit Christmas Tree, people gathered to sing festive carols accompanied by the Horsham Youth Concert Band. Chairman of the Parish Council, Councilor Graham Watkins, said “Once again, the Southwater Christmas Festival was a fabulous success and what a fantastic day to start the run up to Christmas. There was something for every one of all ages to enjoy. “This event showcases the strong sense of community we have here in Southwater and I would like to thank all those who got involved on the day”.

Networking lunch for Collyer’s students Reindeer coming to town inspiring guest speakers.” (actually Horsham Museum) The aim of the busy and inPhoto by Lucy Hargreaves

Last week, Collyer’s welcomed Working Options in Education, who arranged for prestigious speakers to visit the Ofsted Outstanding College to share their experiences with students. Lauren Monk (Working Options Ambassador and National Development Manager, Monkey Business Foundation), Al Gunn (Sales Director, Boost Drinks), Chris Craig (Commercial Director, The Silverspoon Company) and Julia Dixon (National Account Controller for Diageo) all gave inspiring and entertaining talks.

The top business leaders spoke about their career journey since leaving school, college or university, and then there was an opportunity for the students to network over lunch, find out about what employers are looking for, how to stand out from others, and prepare for the world of work. Lucy Hargreaves, Employability Programme Co-ordinator, felt the session was a huge success: “The level of student engagement and enthusiasm was impressive and testament to the

sightful session was to help students from across the college, including those currently studying the new Collyer’s Employability Programme, gain an understanding of career paths and the world of work. Senior Tutor Ian McAlister, who also presents at HE and progression events at Collyer’s, said: “The college’s numerous progression activities this year will include guest speakers, mock interviews, employability skills workshops, Not Going to Uni (NG2U) evenings, HE Evenings, HE Fairs, Oxbridge Trips and a host of other events in conjunction with key national, regional and local partner organisations.” During the presentations, students were able to ask the experts probing questions about the world of work and possible career paths. Working Options Ambassador Lauren Monk told the students: “The work Collyer’s is doing in this area is outstanding and I’ve been very impressed with the students I’ve met today.” Collyer’s Vice Principal, Steve Martell was delighted: “Today has been a massive success allround. The students loved it! Huge thanks to these incredibly successful business experts for taking time out to help Collyer’s students plan for their futures.”

We rely very heavily on support and donations from the local communi-

ty and each year the charity needs to raise more that £6.5 million. Without this type of support from Barns Green we couldn’t deliver our expert care services to local people when it’s needed most.” The whole village gets behind the Barns Green Half Marathon and 10K race, attracting a huge crowd of supporters and spectators, all revelling in the unbeatable carnival atmosphere. There is a funfair, food stalls and an abundance of varied live music, both on the village green and around the now famous, undulating closed lanes from the village through Itchingfield, Christ’s Hospital – including through the school – and around Southwater, taking in some of the most scenic countryside in West Sussex. Entries are already open for next year’s races – on Sunday September 30 – when the organisers will once again be striving to raise as much money as possible, both for charity and for the local groups and clubs helping with setting up the event, packing the runners’ goodie bags, stewarding in the village and around the course and the many other jobs needed to make this brilliantly well organised day so special – please go to www. barnsgeen-half.org.uk for details on how to enter the iconic Barns Green races.

September saw the 35th Half Marathon and the second 10K race with a total of well over 2000 runners competing. St Catherine’s Hospice is a charity dedicated to providing expert end of life care – including much appreciated home visits - to support local people, their families, friends and carers. For over 30 years it has been delivering this high quality hospice care free of charge to people living in Horsham and the surrounding community, responding to the needs of each individual, helping people to achieve their best quality of life. The 2017 10K race was started by Wendy Buckingham, who had a poignant reason to support St Catherine’s. With her three young daughters by her side Wendy said: “Sadly, I lost my husband all too young but the way St Catherine’s looked after him was truly fantastic and their aftercare was so supportive for me and the girls at such a difficult time. So, I’m here to encourage everyone to contribute to the wonderful service that they provide.” Horsham MP Jeremy Quin echoed Wendy’s sentiments saying: “St Catherine’s cared for my mother-in-law – they are magnificent and I can’t praise them enough.” Nigel Currie added: “Several members of the Barns Green Organising Committee were invited to St Catherine’s to see

Neighbourhood wardens share road safety advice Vanessa Green and Carol Boniface, wardens for Pulborough and Nutbourne, attended St Mary’s Primary School, Pulborough, to liaise with children and parents about road safety. The pair handed out ‘Arrive Alive’ and road safety leaflets, bicycle spoke reflectors and Sussex Safer Road Partnership pens and also recruited some parents to join a road safety action group to be led by the school Parent Teacher Association. Mike Pearce and Paul Conroy, the neighbourhood wardens for Steyning, Bramber and Upper Beeding, ran a road awareness quiz for children at Steyning Primary

School. They also stopped people cycling without lights in the dark to talk about the dangers involved and undertook a school patrol, targeting those parents parking on yellow lines at school pick up. Councillor Tricia Youtan commented: “As Chair of the Horsham District Community Safety Partnership, I am thrilled to see the neighbourhood wardens working with local schools on the important issue of road safety. It’s essential that children know how to keep safe when walking, cycling or crossing roads and for parents to drive and park considerately when dropping off or picking up their children from school.”

As part of national Road Safety Week (20 – 26 November) Billingshurst Community Partnership worked with children from WAKOOS after school club, in Billingshurst, to design a number of colourful postcards to help keep children safe whilst walking to and from school. In many areas of Billingshurst, pavements are partially obscured by overgrown hedges, making it difficult in places for families and groups of children to pass without walking in the road. The specially designed postcards were put through the doors of residents

with badly overgrown hedges, politely asking them to cut back the vegetation. Denise Campbell, Chair of Billingshurst Community Partnership, explained: “For a while now we have realised that local residents are allowing their hedges to grow across the pavements leading to the Weald and Billingshurst Primary Schools. They are probably unaware that this is causing children to walk in the road, which is an accident waiting to happen. “The Partnership is very concerned about the safety of local

children, so we contacted WAKOOS to see if they wanted to help with a postcard campaign to raise awareness of the issue with local residents. We were thrilled with the resulting designs and chose four to feature on the cards.” The winning designs were created by Ellie (aged 9), Ellie (aged 10) (both pictured), Harry (aged 9) and Maggie (aged 10). Younger children from WAKOOs, along with children from St Gabriel’s Pre-school and Dauxwood Pre-school, also took part in the Beep! Beep! campaign, run by the BRAKE charity. The children learnt about the basics of road safety through fun activities, including creating their own BRAKE mascot Zak the Zebra masks, and all children took home a certificate. Linda Nicholl, the Manager of St Gabriel’s Pre-school, said: “The children at St. Gabriel’s have had a good time this week learning about road safety. There has been lots of discussion, thinking, understanding and FUN. The children chose the activities from the pack from BRAKE. Thanks to Billingshurst Community Partnership for including us in the activity.” All activity has been supported by the Horsham District Community Safety Partnership in the form of a small grant for resources.

Care Home residents and staff knit toys to raise money for Guide dogs for the blind Residents and staff members from Westlake House care home in Horsham have knitted toys to raise money for the guide dogs. Guide Dogs aims to support blind and partially sighted people to get out and about and do the things they want to do. The Guide service use guiding techniques to help people with sight loss to work towards the mobility goals they want to achieve. This could involve accessing activities and places of interest in the local community, learning familiar routes and improving fitness. Westlake House General Manager Elizabeth Higson said: “The residents were keen to do something to help vulnerable people living with a blind disability. So, after we bought several colourful wools, they knitted several toys, such as mice, brides, ballet dancers, town criers,

scarecrow, minions, pink pigs, Rosie and Jim, bride and grooms.” Mavis Hillier, 87, who recently moved to Westlake House from London three months ago, was keen to knit toys to raise money for the blind. Since being taught (at the tender age of 5) to knit by her aunt, Mavis has incorporated knitting throughout her life and says she has knitted ‘just about everything’. Charlotte, care staff member who has worked at Westlake House over the last 22 years, said: it gives me great satisfaction, knowing that I’m making a difference to people’s lives. I was keen to take part in raising money for the same charity, as I love puppies. I like helping people, so I thought I’d use my knitting skills to help people living with the blind disability.”

Items needed for Salvation Army Chistmas Appeal News Martin Read Many appeals are heard at Horsham Cricket Club – but this one is really very special and richly deserves support from the whole community. Each year the Salvation Army helps vulnerable families in the Horsham district, especially around the festive season. Last year 400 children in around 150 families received donated food parcels, gifts and store vouchers. These were families that would have otherwise gone without at Christmas and this year a group of local small business owners have come together to collect and deliver items by December 9th. The Salvation Army are therefore seeking the following items – Boxes of Chocolate Selections (last year 400 were provided and it is hoped to beat that this Christmas), Store Gift Cards – up

to the value of £20 - are also sought – particularly for Sainsbury, because at least £4,000 worth of food will be required. Gift cards for Argos, Boots, Primark and Wilko will also be greatly appreciated – as will toiletry gift packs (rather than essential items). Over 200 gift packs are needed – sets of women’s luxury items such as hand creams, bubble baths, body lotions and the like are most welcome – along with men’s products. In addition to Horsham Cricket Club, they thank the following who have also kindly agreed to be collection points for the appeal – in Horsham: Horsham Publications (Piries Place), Sakakini Jewellers – Carfax – and The Holbrook Club, while, in Southwater gifts can be taken to: Cakes by Sharon Walker and Coco’s Hair Salon. www.salvationarmy.org/horsham - 01403 254624

Pilot scheme to provide mobility scooter training

Horsham Town Community Partnership (HTCP) and Horsham District Older Peoples Forum (HDOPF) supported by Age UK, Horsham District are putting together a pilot scheme to provide mobility scooter training for new users and for those more experienced users who would benefit from a refresher course. The number of mobility scooters currently being used in the

UK is estimated to be 350,000 and is likely to increase year on year. There is no requirement to register or insure mobility scooters, have any driving experience or have any training. Provided you have the money, you can purchase your machine, ride off and drive most places off road. There are a few restrictions if you wish to use the scooter on the road, but these are only filling in a few forms and having the right type of scooter. There is no requirement to have a level of mobility or sight. During the period between 2011 and 2015 there has been 23 mobility scooter fatalities with a further 490 injuries and most of these have been classed as serious. To help prevent these accidents, give training and confidence to new users it is proposed to run a free pilot training scheme in Horsham. If this proves to be successful, the program could be ongoing. We are in contact with Gosport Older Persons Forum who have run a similar successful pilot scheme and they have agreed to share their experiences and support us setting up our scheme. HTCP would lead with the initiative with HDOPF with Age UK, Horsham District giving support. Depending on the cost to hire a venue and hopefully support from a local supplier of scooters, the initial funding requirements would be in the region of £2000 to £3000

for the 6-month trial. David Searle, Chairman of HTCP, said: “There are several organisations who we believe would support and financially fund this scheme through their grant procedure but would obviously require an assurance that there is a local need for such a scheme”. If you, a family member or friend uses a mobility scooter or are thinking of purchasing one in the future and feel this would be something they would benefit from, please contact us by email hdopforum@gmail.com The next step is to form a Working Group to agree the way forward, obtain funding and volunteers to become trainers and to help run the scheme. The HD Older Peoples Forum has agreed to put this on the agenda of their next meeting Wednesday 6 December 2017 10.30am at the Southwater Parish Council Offices, Beeson House, Lintot Square, which supporters are welcome to attend. If you can attend this meeting, please advise us by email: hdopforum@gmail.com so that we can make sure there is sufficient room. Please come along and hear more about the initiative, lend your support, join the Working Group or become a volunteer.

economy. The Forum was opened by Leigh Chambers, Economic Development Officer at the council, who highlighted that the district needed to attract more visitors and they needed to stay for longer and spend more whilst they were enjoying all that our district had to offer. He continued to outline the various initiatives the council had put in place to support small businesses to develop the right markets – including the annual Big Nibble food celebration and district wide Food and Drink Festival. Details of various funding opportunities for small businesses were also highlighted and the delegates were advised on how to apply.

Alison Burgh from the Acorn Consultancy, who helped to develop the tourism strategy engaged the audience by ‘Telling the Horsham district story’, showcasing our district as an attractive, vibrant destination. She also revealed a newly designed visual identity which all the district’s businesses can use to promote the district. Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture, Cllr Jonathan Chowen, also shared details of the 2019 Horsham District Year of Culture, which is being co-ordinated by the council and encouraged as many organisations as possible to get involved and apply for the grant funds available. Hilary Knight and Paula Seager, from Natural Partnerships CIC, gave a presentation on the importance of the local food and drink industry and the support available to them to enter new markets. Commenting on the event, Cabinet Member for the Local Economy Gordon Lindsay said: “I was delighted to see so many different businesses attend our first Tourism Economy Forum from so many different tourism sectors: hotel owners, bed and breakfast proprietors, breweries, vineyards, food producers, café and restaurant owners to name just a few. “It was encouraging to see them sharing their passion to boost our tourism economy by working together to entice more visitors to enjoy all that our area has to offer. “Many thanks to those who have already joined our Visitor Economy Partnership, and for those individuals and companies who have not yet signed up, I would urge you to do so as soon as possible to reap the considerable benefits available.” For those wishing to join the Horsham District Visitor Economy Partnership please email: business.development@horsham. gov.uk

Families across West Sussex benefit from 30 hours free childcare Following the launch of the Government’s 30 hours free childcare offer for working parents on 1 September, parents have been speaking of the positive impact this is having on their lives. In recent feedback gathered by West Sussex County Council, one local parent said: “The funding has taken a lot of stress and worry away. Without this, my children would not be able to go to nursery and experience time in a different environment, learning to be independent.” Parents of eligible three and four year olds, who have registered a place on the scheme, could save around £5,000 per year per child. There have already been thousands of families across the country who have joined the scheme which aims to help balance jobs and family lives. Stephen Hillier, County Council Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “We know from experience that the cost of childcare has often been a barrier

allowing parents to continue or return to the workplace. “The 30 hours free childcare scheme really supports families to get a positive work-life balance, whilst the children build good social skills and have a wide range of opportunities to learn as they play. “For childcare starting in

January, parents must check if they are eligible before the end of December and we’d encourage all eligible families to look into the scheme, to help make an informed choice about how this could benefit them.” To find out more about 30 hours free childcare, please visit: www. westsussex.gov.uk/childcarecosts.

Local business donates defibrillator to Southwater Community First Responders

Trimbio, a Horsham based business, that supplies and services new and reconditioned medical devices, was pleased to donate a defibrillator to the Southwater Community First Responders at the Southwater Christmas Festival, for use as a Public Access Defibrillator. Simon Francis, the founder and Managing Director of Trimbio, said: “After working with these devices for several years, I realised not only how important they are, but also that there is a shortage of them in public places.”

In the UK, there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year where emergency medical services attempt to resuscitate the victim out side of hospital, with less than 10% of these patients surviving post hospitalisation. However, if prompt action is taken then this survival rate can increase to over 50%, ( London Ambulance Service recently reported a rate of 56%), this prompt action is based on a few simple steps: 1. The cardiac arrest is recognised immediately. 2. 999 is called.

3. CPR is performed by bystanders with the use of a Public Access Defibrillator. Simon continued: “Public Access Defibrillators are extremely safe to use these days, they talk you though the whole process, including automatically analysing the patients heart rate prior to shocking and will not allow a shock to be delivered if it is not required. “It is great to be able to give something to our local community that could one day save a life.”

It’s Panto time at Roffey Cricket Club – Oh, yes it is!

Good news – Roffey’s pantomime stars will soon be treading the boards again at Roffey Cricket Club! This year’s production is on Saturday December 16 at 5pm and rehearsals are in full swing. The club broke their duck with Cinderella in 2014, followed by Aladdin in 2015 and, after a pause to recover, this year’s show is Robin Hood. Club Secretary Maria Henderson has again written the script and is panto Director, telling the District Post: “Preparation is going very well and we have a very strong cast this year, including some of the

usual favourite performers, so its shaping up to be a memorable show and seeing the actors bringing it to life is very satisfying.” Aladdin played to a packed house and was highly amusing with the performers providing rich entertainment, Maria’s sons, Joe and Sam had leading roles, experienced actor Joe taking the name part while his then diminutive younger brother Sam played his mother, Widow Twankey. Football and cricket mad Sam was an ugly sister in Cinderella and in Aladdin, sporting a waist length blonde wig, he delivered his substan-

tial lines with great panache. In Robin Hood award winning Irish dancer Katie Jeal will be making a welcome return and Dan Masser will also have a starring role, Maria Henderson adding: “Once again, the show is truly a team and club production, from sound, scenery painting, prop making, musical direction and the cast, who are giving up two nights a week to make the show a reality. We have spent several months preparing the scenery and thanks to our Chairman, Mark Hamilton and Joanne Dance and Liz Keast we’ve created Sherwood Forest at the club! It’s a traditional pantomime with a Roffey Cricket Club twist – its hard work, but so much fun to put on, so I hope everyone coming along really enjoys it.” That is certain to happen – in Aladdin there was an amusing reworking of the Twelve Days of Christmas and ingenious passages of business involving the magic carpet and Widow Twankey’s laundry. Father Christmas will again be putting in an appearance this year with presents for the children. Entry to the panto is just £2, to cover the cost of production and refreshments – or £5, including the entry charge, for children to receive a present from Father Christmas. Roffey CC have requested those proposing to attend to advise the club of their intentions by e mail – roffeycc@gmail.com – to enable the organisers to decide whether an additional performance of the panto should be staged.

So what do you buy for the guy or girl who has everything this Christmas? The Loxwood Joust, true to its chivalrous origins is releasing early bird tickets to help solve some of those Christmas present conundrums. For the first time, early bird special price tickets will go on sale on Friday 24th November with a 25% discount off the gate prices. Danny Bacon, organiser of the Joust said ”We have been told many times that tickets to the Joust would make a great Christmas present and so we have introduced this early bird offer as a way for us to spread some Christmas cheer too! We are playing a large part in Horsham’s Mediaeval Christmas this year with the Mediaeval Market and Banquet, and we wanted to give something more to those people who have supported The Loxwood Joust over past 5 years.” A selection of mediaeval entertainers and traders from the Joust will be vying for your attention at the Mediaeval Market in in Horsham Town Centre on the 2nd and 3rd December. Mediae-

val merchants will have trinkets, treasures, crafts and all manner of unique goodies for young and old, and wandering entertainers, the Sultan’s Sirens belly dancing troupe, Avon Faire and the Black Archer will be on hand to enchant, amuse and entertain. For those partial to a drop of mead, the Loxwood Joust Christmas Mead will also be available to purchase. The Early bird tickets go on sale on the 24th November at the price of Adult £12 Child £6, with the normal gate prices being Adult £16 Child £8. The tickets may be purchased from The Lox-

Volunteering Opportunities Building Heroes based in Pulborough is a charity which retrains military veterans for a career in the building trades. They rely on fundraising activities to fulfil their vital role in helping ex-service personnel into employment and need enthusiastic, friendly and reliable people to support and increase their activities and to raise the profile of the charity in the local area. If you can help organise fundraising events (e.g. sponsored walk, swim, bake sale, coffee mornings, etc, liase with community groups who may hold fundraising events for them, make phone calls to potential supporters, offer support at existing events (e.g. handing out flyers, providing information, serving drinks) or various other support tasks they would love to hear from you. Are you passionate about your community and want to make a difference? Emerging Futures train individuals to work as part of a coaching team to support their local community. Family recovery coaches help individuals in a family develop their own wellbeing and support system and to make valued life choices. And recovery coaches support individuals to move in to the community from structured treatment, detox, residential rehabilitation and prison. Pulborough and District Community Care Association needs a Wednesday club volunteer to help with activities at its social club for older people, for example short mat bowls, games, bingo, and the occasional outing - all accompanied by tea and cake. The association also needs a telephonist to work from home to take appointments for its Community Transport Service. Carers Support West Sussex needs support group co-facilitators to help provide a confidential space for carers to meet, offload and gain information. They also need telephone support volunteers to help carers share emotions and reduce stress and isolation by providing active listening. And the charity seeks young adult carer engagement volunteers to meet and communicate regularly with young adult carers to support them. If you want to know more about any of the opportunities above or are thinking of volunteering and want to know what’s out there, just log on to www.hamsva.org.uk/opportunities and explore the many ways in which you can get involved in your community. Can you help beat hunger by offering a couple of hours at your local Tesco store on Nov 30 or December 1 or 2?

The collections take place at Tesco stores UK-wide when volunteers are asked to help collect food donations from customers for a few hours in their local store and hand out the FareShare shopping list.

Horsham Flamingos ‘Feel Good’ at National Competition Three of the youngest members of BSC Horsham Flamingos Synchronised Swimming team, who are part of the Pavilions swimming school and train there regularly, took part in the National Age Group Competition over the weekend.

Hockey Martin Read - Sports Reporter Horsham started confidently in attacking formation, which seemed to unsettle tentative Basingstoke, who provided Horsham with plenty of room to play. Louisa Denman scored a field goal giving Horsham a 1-0 lead at the break, despite the occasional Basingstoke foray. In the second half the hosts delivered a more positive display, putting Horsham under increased pressure and this produced fruit when a breakaway diagonal run across the pitch enabled Sharon Stones to equalise by deflecting the ball into the Horsham goal. The game then entered a tense phase with both sides seeking the decider,

Maria, one of the youngest entrants, put on an excellent performance against competitors from bigger, more established clubs.

producing chances at either end. Horsham were convinced that Tiff Male had scored the winner with a short corner conversion but the umpire ruled that the ball had not been brought outside of the D and the goal was disallowed. At the end of the game Basingstoke expressed disappointment with their performance, but declared themselves content to share the points. Whereas, talking about Horsham’s game Ladies Club Captain Charlotte CJ White said: “Basingstoke pressed differently in the second half, which didn’t give us so much scope. It was disappointing to be denied the win, but we played well again with some good team moves.” Horsham remain fourth, one place below Basingstoke and, on Saturday, they welcome Reading Ladies 2s to Broadbridge Heath for a 2pm push back. Reading currently sit 9th in the table with three wins from 9 games.

Over 400 gymnasts from the South East Region competed over the weekend of November 25/26 at the 2017 Regional Championships in Sittingbourne, Kent, including 16 from Horsham Gymnastics Centre’s Sports Acro squad. Of the 16 from Horsham competing, amazingly, 10 of them came away as Regional Champions in Gold Medal position. Three others finished second and came away with Silver Medals while the final trio finished a very creditable fifth. Horsham Gymnastics Centre is highly regarded as one of Britain’s top gymnastic clubs and this fantastic set of results further enhances their reputation.

The 12 new Regional Champions who won gold are: Frazer Kerr Jones & Logan Jones in

Well done also to all of the coaches who have worked with this talented group of gymnasts the Grade 1 Mens Pairs, Devon Thomas & Naima Hyder who were competing in the Grade 4 Mixed Pairs, Ella Turtle, Grace Hanger & Lily Garrard in the Grade 4 Womens Group and Olivia Barry,

Madeline Kent & Jessica Harmer who became Grade 5 Womens Group Champions. The Horsham Grade 2 Womens Group of Lily O’Keefe, Louise O’Hara & Jess Roberts finished as Silver Medallists and Lilly Knight, Nina Butler Laplace & Angelina Lane came fifth in the Grade 4 Womens Group competition. Ali Harmer, Head of Acro at Horsham Gymnastics Centre, said; “Well done to all the gymnasts who took part last weekend. Well done also to all of the coaches who have worked with this talented group of gymnasts helping them achieve this set of fantastic results up against the very best gymnasts in the South East.”

Horsham mugged by Teddy Boys Saturday November 25 – South League – Premier – Division 1 London Edwardians Men’s 1st XI 6 1 Horsham Men Hockey Martin Read - Sports Reporter Horsham’s visit to Battersea ended with a heavy defeat after the strong current runners up scored in the first two minutes and went

on to notch up their seventh win of the season. Edwardians brought 16 players to the game, whereas Horsham had been hit with injuries and non availability. But, Horsham did manage to score when skipper Andy Isaacs launched a long range kick from his goal for Andy MacDonald to collect and put in, but they trailed 4-1 at the break. Two more field goals from Edwardians in the sec-

ond half compounded Horsham’s woes. Tomorrow, Saturday, Horsham play another London side – Spencer from Earlsfield SW18 – at Christ’s Hospital, pushing back at noon. Horsham remain in the penultimate spot with a solitary win from the first game of the season. Spencer run 11 men’s teams and are fifth in the table after losing 4-2 to Bromley & Beckenham last week.

Horsham bounce back to silence title chasing Hove

Saturday November 25 – London 2 South East Horsham 25 20 Hove Rugby Martin Read - Sports Reporter After two consecutive defeats Horsham racked up their seventh win of the season – a real feather in their cap against second-placed Hove. The very noisy Hove team bristled with confidence and expected to win, but once again Horsham overturned them - as they have now done in six out of their last seven contests, including memorable wins in two Bob Rogers Cup Finals. Horsham go

back up to fourth with 34 points, Hove remain second on 37, nine points behind runaway leaders Dartfordians. Mike Watts created an opportunity for Horsham, running through the Hove defence to supply Joe Wilde, who crossed the line and then converted for an early 7-0 lead. Hove immediately responded, but were thwarted by a knock on. Wilde then kicked two penalties, in between which a dropped ball denied Hove a try. But, the visitors then went on the rampage with a penalty and two converted tries in six brutal minutes. Bruised, Horsham suddenly found themselves trailing 13-17 at the break. Horsham missed a penalty on the resumption but

promptly re-took the lead when Mike Watts galloped half the field, slicing through the Hove defence for a breathtaking try, Wilde maximising. And, it soon got even better when Tom Blewitt dodged tackles to put Horsham 25-17 ahead. By this time, in numbing cold, Hove’s Captain Sam Whiting was awaiting an ambulance for hospital examination of a suspected broken leg, and without his services Hove needed to score at least twice to snatch the game. In fast fading light they pushed hard and converted a penalty, but Horsham’s defence was up to the task, the highly-charged game ending 25-20 in the Green and Whites’ favour. Horsham Head Coach Nick Stocker said: “This was a great advert for community rugby between two committed sides. Apart from the brief spell just before half time we controlled the game more effectively than Hove, limiting their potent attack and imposing ourselves. I wish Sam Whiting a speedy recovery, he’s a fantastic player.” Tomorrow, Saturday, Horsham revert to Bob Rogers Cup action – the competition they have won for the last four years - with a home Quarter Final against Crowborough – 1.30 start. Crowborough are currently eighth in London 3SE, the league below Horsham. Meanwhile, with his leg heavily strapped, Horsham Captain Tom Johnson expects to be sidelined for up to 12 more weeks and team regular Johnny Ordidge is nursing a dislocated shoulder.

YMCA charge on with another big win Tuesday November 21 – Macron Store Southern Combination Football League – Premier Div Littlehampton Town 1 4 Horsham YMCA Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter Littlehampton are well down the table and were thumped 7-0 by Loxwood in their penultimate game, but that was their only defeat in their last five matches, so although YMCA are in a rich vein of form, there was no question of complacency – especially as this was YM’s game in hand, which they needed to win to remain in contention. YM came into their own in the second half with a strong performance forging a convincing victory. They had the best of the first half, too, testing Littlehampton keeper Luke Hutchings, but did not manage to convert possession and chances into goals after Luke Donaldson had put YM in front with a pinpoint header in the 15th minute.

Despite Littlehampton opportunities, especially challenging runs by Ole Bankhole, the score remained 1-0 in YM’s favour at the break. The second half was, though, a different story. After Dan Evans and Aaron Jeal had kept Littlehampton at bay, a quarter of an hour in Luke Gedling put YM further ahead from a curling free kick before Sam Schaaf made it 3-0 with a crashing strike. Manager Peter Buckland then rang the changes with Dave Brown and Schaaf giving way to Callum Jeal and Mark Cave. Then, with ten minutes remaining and YM under no pressure, they endured their only blemish of the game when Ben Gray took advantage of a defensive mix up to reduce Littlehampton’s deficit. Ash Dugdale was brought on for Donaldson and moments later, on the stroke of full time, Liam Humphries put the icing on the cake, finalising an excellent build up with YM’s fourth goal. Peter Buckland praised Littlehampton’s spirit, expressing surprise that they are not higher up the table.

Pulborough edge towards exit of the relegation zone

Saturday November 25 – London 2 South East Pulborough 55 10 Barking Rugby Martin Read - Sports Reporter Pulborough delivered a much needed nine try win, giving

them 15 points, just one below tenth placed Deal & Betteshanger, who were shaded 12-10 at Heathfield. With a changed format, after a dominant first 30 mintues Boro led 31-3, which remained the score at the break. And, they cruised through the second

half with 24 more points. A Will Scrase hat trick led the try scorers with Ewen Calloway in hot pursuit with two and a try apiece for Ollie Paige, Matt Goring, Ben Miller and Nick van Pelt. Frazer Oliphant Hope and Boro skipper Simon Burfiend shared the kicking with five conversions,

Head Coach Clayton Saunders telling the District Post: “It was great for us to close the gap at the bottom of the table and I was especially pleased to see 18 year old Nick van Pelt’s try on his debut. We’ve moved closer to Deal & Betteshanger and we’ve got a crunch game against them

in East Kent on December 9th, like us they’ve been struggling a bit, but they beat Horsham, so it’ll be a tough game, especially over there. I just hope we can get through to Christmas without any injuries.” Pulborough are without a game this weekend. Spare a thought for former National League side Barking, where legendary England prop Jason Leonard cut his teeth. Barking were relegated last year and are currently cut adrift at the bottom of the table without a single win and an average losing score of 50-7 per game. As can easily happen when a side goes down, key players leave because they want to continue playing at a higher level, forcing a club to field inexperienced, unready players. Barking have failed to put out a side in two of their previous three matches, flirting with elimination if that trend continues. It would be bad for the game if a proper rugby club like Barking subsides further and, amid general concern and in the hope that their predicament can be resolved, their plight is apparently on the radar of the Essex RFU.

Hornets battle through to competitive draw Tuesday November 28 – Bostik Football League South Division Herne Bay 1 1 Horsham Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter

Saturday November 251 – Macron Store Southern Combination Football League – Premier Div Loxwood 2 1 Horsham YMCA Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter When this game kicked off YM

and Loxwood were cheek by jowl in the table, and YM had won seven out of their previous eight league games, seeing off several championship contenders. But, it was Loxwood, the Magpies, who took all the points in an unexpectedly disappointing YM performance. The first half was marked by an incredible

bicycle kick save by Aaron Jeal in the YM goal, but Loxwood led 1-0 at the break when Jeal brought down Tiago in the area, the player subsequently scoring from the penalty spot. Earlier Bachelor’s chance was saved, while, at the other end, Sam Schaaf had a goal disallowed for YM and Phil Johnson was unable to convert opportunities. YM Manager Peter Buckley rang further changes in the second half, both sides creating openings and receiving bookings, and the next goal did not come until the 85th minute,

when Loxwood’s Ollie Moore fired into the left corner of the goal from close range. Well into extra time a hand ball in the box gifted YM a penalty, which Luke Gedling converted, but YM’s trip to the Plaistow Road Recreation Ground was not a happy one and they will be looking to reboot their surge up the table when they welcome 18th placed AFC Uckfield Town to Gorings Mead on Saturday. The visitors have had four wins and ten defeats from 16 starts and possess the second lowest goal scoring record in the league.

Creative Hornets beat loftier opposition again Saturday November 25 – The Bostik League – South Division Horsham 2 1 Hastings Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter After beating title chasing Greenwich Borough, the Hornets again proved that they are capable of overturning any team in the league on their day when, in continuance of their good run of form, they despatched Hythe Town, nine places above them in the table. But it was the Kent side – the

Cannons – who created the first opportunity, only for Captain Ryan Johnson’s shot to sail over the crossbar. The Hornets responded but Jack Hartley’s foray ended with a clearance. However, Horsham promptly took the lead when Dean Bown brought the ball under control before slotting it home in the eighth minute. Five minutes later Bown might have scored again – until Cannons keeper William Godmon’s legs got in the way. Hythe immediately attacked but Horsham escaped when Dean Grant’s header went just over. Then, Bown was

in action again, but shot wide before he was unable to put away a rebound from a Scott Kirkwood attempt, Joe Shelley’s then firing wide. It was, though, Hythe who scored next – Charlie Webster equalising from close range. The Hornets responded, but Shelley’s acrobatic attempt was unable to maximise Kirkwood’s supply. Bown caused further problems but neither he nor Hakeem Adelakun’s strikes were on target. And, just before the break, Hythe evaded Hornet keeper Brannon Daly, but fortunately the ball went past the goal, the score

remaining 1-1 at the break. On the restart Bown was off target and then penetrated Hythe’s defence, again to no avail, but Horsham soon increased their lead when Shelley headed in a corner. Hythe kept pressing until Toby House was substituted for Bown but could not slot home. After Sollis fired wide, Daly prevented the same player, and his team mate Grant, from scoring, and then crucially kept Hythe out again in the dying moments to enable the Hornets to pocket all three points.

At Lancing in September Herne Bay beat Horsham 5-2, eliminating them from the FA Cup, but the Hornets’ long journey to furthest, freezing East Kent was a far closer encounter, as befitted the two mid-table sides, and the draw was a fair result, with both sides content to share the points. Herne Bay made the first showing – earning two corners, the first of which was headed wide before Steve Metcalfe negated the second. The Hornets were attacking, too, but Scott Kirkwood shot just past the post from Jack Hartley’s rebound. The same two players were in action again but Herne Bay keeper Benjamin Hunter kept them at bay and Brannon Daly in the Hornets’ goal was also called upon successfully. Kirkwood then saw his long range pile-driver cannon off the bar for an unfulfilled corner ahead of Hakeem Adelakun testing Hunter with a speculative attempt. Herne Bay responded, but two more Horsham corners kept the opposition on their toes, the first half ending goal-less. The game resumed in similar fashion, with both keepers negating attacks. An injury to Lewis Hyde necessitated changes, followed by Dean Bown, Kirkwood and Joe Shelley all creating chances – Shelley having a goal disallowed, the referee ruling that he had climbed on a Herne Bay defender. Darren Boswell was also causing problems for the hosts, and, after Herne Bay had shaved the crossbar, Metcalfe gave Horsham the lead in the 63rd minute when he slotted home sub Tony Nwachukwu’s pass. Herne Bay substitutions injected energy, producing a header and a forlorn strike from a distance – until the equaliser came from Schafer’s drive when he took advantage of an errant back pass. There was still ample time for either side to snatch a win but opportunities came and went, ending with the teams shaking hands on a hardfought draw. On Saturday Horsham take the road to Kent again, but this time with a far shorter journey - to Dartford - to play 10th placed Phoenix Sports
