Sponsor a Gruffalo and be a part of a global phenomenon To celebrate the Horsham District Year of Culture 2019 patron, the children’s author Julia Donaldson MBE, writer of The Gruffalo, organisers will be sending 20 Gruffalo soft toys on a worldwide journey during 2019 – but they need human help. The 20 Gruffalo toys, each individually identifiable by their bespoke labels, will set off on their journey in January 2019; but for them to get going, each one will need a sponsor. So far, eight have been sponsored, which leaves just 12 waiting. The premise of Global Gruffalo is straightforward – receive the Gruffalo, take a photo of yourself and the toy and upload to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram via @GlobalGruffalo, or using the #GlobalGruffalo, saying where you are in the world, then pass him on to someone else to do the same – with the aim to get all of them home to Horsham for December 2019, to be part of an exhibition at Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens during 2020. For a bit more fun, you can also visit the Global Gruffalo website, where you can fill in a postcard

with some more information and view a map where you’ll be able to see where your Gruffalo has been and where others are visiting. Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Jonathan Chowen, said: “It cannot be underplayed just how important this project is to the Year of Culture. By working with Magic Light, we are shining

Sponsors will need to be on social media, and will be encouraged to look after their Gruffalo a spotlight on our District, and, in creating this incredible project, our District will be linked with a world renowned character. “This project is a brilliant way of collaborating with our Horsham District resident and Patron to the Year of Culture, Julia Donaldson MBE, in the year that her wonderful book, The Gruffalo, celebrates its 20th year since publication.

“It’s also a great analogy for our Year of Culture in 2019, the Gruffalo going out to the four corners of the globe, linking everyone to the United Kingdom and the Horsham District in particular. Plus, let’s face it, it’ll be a fun project to be involved with!” Sponsors will need to be on social media, and will be encouraged to look after their Gruffalo, either by ensuring the toy gets moved on, or by encouraging others to share its whereabouts or take them away somewhere. Plans already coming forward include aiming for the most travelled with Gatwick Airport, visiting Peru with Jodie Kidd and Chestnut Tree Hospice, crushing grapes at the Benguela Cove vineyard in South Africa, checking out the sites with Saxon Weald, and visiting all the primary schools in the District with the help of Swan Walk Shopping Centre. The project is being led by the Year of Culture team, working closely with Magic Light Pictures and Julia Donaldson MBE. Inspired?

Jon Salmon and Crawford Butler will travel to Europe for The Royal British Legion’s Great Pilgrimage 90 5-9th August 2018 Members of the Horsham branch of The Royal British Legion are to join thousands on a pilgrimage of Remembrance to World War One battlefield, that culminates in a parade and ceremony in Ypres, as part of the end of the First World War centenary commemorations this August.

The Royal British Legion event, known as Great Pilgrimage 90 (GP90), takes place between August 5 and 9, and will be one of the largest in the charity’s history. GP90 will mark 90 years since the original Royal British Legion Pilgrimage in 1928, which saw 11,000 World War One veterans and war widows visit the battlefields of the Somme in France and Ypres in Belgium, a decade after the conflict ended.

That Pilgrimage culminated in a march through Ypres to the Commonwealth War Grave Commission’s Menin Gate Memorial for a ceremony to commemorate the launch of The Hundred Days Offensive, and in remembrance of those who never returned. Local Legion members, Jon Salmon and Crawford Butler will represent the Horsham Branch and the local community at the event, as Standard Bearer and wreath layer respectively. Jon and Crawford will tour some of the same battlefields and cemeteries visited by those on the 1928 Pilgrimage, before marching along the original route through Ypres, to the Menin Gate on August 8, bearing their branch standard and a wreath. They will join more than 2,200 other Legion representatives and dignitaries, including Civic and military guests from the UK, Commonwealth, and Northern Europe, who are taking part. Once at the Menin Gate, Crawford will lay a wreath on behalf of the Horsham community. Eve White, Secretary of the Horsham Branch of The Royal British Legion, commented: “Great Pilgrimage 90 is a unique opportunity for the Legion community to come together and bear our Standards along the same route in Ypres taken 90 years earlier by the veterans and widows of the First World War. Our branch looks forward to proudly representing Horsham District at the event.” As local champions of Remembrance, the Horsham Branch of The Royal British Legion is looking to work in partnership with their community to bring their unique Remembrance message to the Menin Gate, on their wreath, where it will be displayed in a wreath installation for viewing by the general public until the end of August. If you want to find out more about GP90 or your local Royal British Legion branch, then please contact Eve White at Horsham. or call 07504 206413.

Fun children’s town sticker trail launched for school summer holidays Hot on the heels of Horsham District Council’s popular ‘Townies and Parkies‘ children’s trails, a new Horsham Town Centre Sticker Trail is set to launch this Friday (20 July) just in time for the school summer holidays. The initial children’s trails which launched during the May Half Term featured a series of animal characters which decorate the town’s new illustrative panelling in the walk way linking the town centre with Horsham Park at Albion Way and the new Sticker Trail will build on these characters. This free sticker trail activity has once again been organised by Horsham District Council with the cooperation of local businesses to support trade in the town centre. Twelve family friendly town centre locations are offering children the opportunity to collect one of 12 animal character stickers that go to fill up a sticker card which can be collected from Waterstones Bookshop in the Carfax. Once the cards have been filled with all twelve stickers, a tear off section can be handed in at Mr Simms sweet shop for an opportunity to win one of a number of prizes donated by the participating locations. The town centre trail runs from Friday 20 July to Sunday 2 September or when cards and stickers run out, if sooner. Prize winners will be notified in the week commencing 3 September. Also launching on the 20 July is an exciting Townies and Parkies story writing competition for children aged 5 to 13 years. More details of this will be given next week but are available online now on the Horsham Time Well Spent events website via . The summer Townies and Parkies Sticker Trail features the following outlets: Waterstones Bookshop, Cocoa Loco, Gobsmack Comics, Toy Barnhaus, The Entertainer, Mr. Simms, Chococo, Battlequest Games, Ceramic Shack, My Fair Kind Child, Steamer Trading and Horsham Library.

Horsham residents invited to star in Metrobus ad campaign 7

Metrobus has invited four local residents to take a starring role in an advertising campaign that celebrates everyday life in Horsham. Running over the summer, the ‘Horsham to Me’ campaign highlights why people love living in this popular area and reminds them of the great things to do, right on their doorstep. Martin Harris, Metrobus managing director, said: “People who live in Horsham are rightly proud of where they live and Metrobus is pleased to play its part in connecting the community to its favourite places. Inviting local people to star in the adverts felt like the natural approach to take, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.” The four models are: Jodie Munday, musician and events promoter at Manic Mundays. Sarah Aslin, sales & marketing manager at Bluecoat Sports. Alexander Carraro, restaurant

manager at Filippo’s Italian Restaurant. Davey Pearson, editor of Horsham District Post. As way of saying thank you Metrobus donated £100 to each of the models to pass on to a charity of their choice. Sarah Aslin commented ‘I chose the

Metrobus is pleased to play its part in connecting the community to its favourite places Cocos foundation as they are a charity based locally, the founder Chris Connors is an inspiration constantly striving to do & give more. The charity do so much amazing work in Africa sharing life changing stories in how the money raised is spent and are extremely proactive in raising

awareness’ . Alexander Carraro’s choice was the local Salvation Army. “My selected Charity was The Horsham Salvation Army. I volunteer there Thursdays and the work they do in the community is beyond valuable, essential and enduring”. Throughout July and August, the adverts will appear in local newspapers, magazines, billboards, and on buses around the area. Metrobus has been a part of the Horsham community since taking over the main bus service in 2009 and has made many improvements, including new buses, expanded services and innovations, such as wifi and USB ports onboard. The company recently announced that the 200 bus route between Horsham and Gatwick would operate 24 hours a day from September 1. Martin added: “It’s so convenient to take the bus for local journeys and, with so many things to do in the area, we look forward to welcoming people onboard.”

Enchanted Horsham’s Dragon Detectorists share knowledge with Kingslea Primary School

Enchanted Horsham delighted the year 4 pupils at Kingslea Primary school when they visited to share their dragon secrets and hear about their wonderful dragon ideas. Taking with them the dragon eggs that will be used to lure the mystical beasts to the event on the 27th, 28th and 29th July, the dragon detectorists asked the pupils to imagine what noises a

baby dragon would make inside the egg, and what noises would lure a dragon to the eggs. The pupils eagerly suggested a wide range of ideas including snoring and just breathing for the babies in the egg, through to a baby in danger, something to eat for dinner and a mate to tempt the dragons in. Having seen a BBC documentary on dragons earlier in the year and

listening to the Enchanted Horsham’s team, a pupil from year 4 said “The dragon topic is really fun and finding out that they were properly real was a very big shock. The most fascinating thing for me is how their scales move according to how their bodies move.” The pupils have been learning about dragons as part of their school topic all year and were keen

to impart their knowledge to Enchanted Horsham’s dragon team. The classes had made their own dragons and dragon traps, and they suggested a wide variety of objects that would work best as bait; such as treasure, animal carcasses, anything shiny, a baby or female dragon and platinum. Somewhat surprised, Enchanted’s intrigued dragonologists asked why would you use platinum, and were informed that a dragon needs platinum to make his fire. The children explained that a dragon will crunch up the platinum into bits and when it mixes with the hydrogen and oxygen gasses in its stomach it combusts and makes the fire for the dragon to breathe. Robin Morley, director of Enchanted Horsham said ‘The children were really amazing. Their interest in the subject and their keenness to show their knowledge of all things dragon was a real treat for us. We learnt some excellent dragon facts from them, and are looking forward to including some of their superb drawings in our light projections on to Park House. ” Enchanted Horsham’s summer extravaganza of theatre, entertainment, food, drink, fashion and music is set to really wow the whole family. It takes place in Horsham Park on the 27th, 28th and 29th July and tickets are available from .

Trading Standards warns of airline allergen advice West Sussex Trading Standards has contacted airlines flying out of Gatwick to remind them of their obligations under EU allergen rules after a number of concerns were raised by passengers. If airlines take on meals in the EU, then the food supplied in flight has to meet EU requirements on allergen information. This means the crew must know what allergens are in the food and this information must be passed on to passengers, either through the menu or verbally in response to a question. Peter Aston, West Sussex County Council’s Trading Standards Manager, said: “Setting off on holidays is an exciting time, but can also be an anxious time if you suffer from a food allergy. As we can’t board the planes to check rules are being followed, we sent guidance notes on the requirements to those airlines taking on food at Gatwick. “Because of the way airlines operate, flights coming in to Gatwick from outside the EU, or outgoing flights that have already taken on the food outside the EU, don’t have to follow the same rules - so those with food allergies still need to be careful in those situations. “We would always be interested to hear from passengers who have concerns over allergen management on flights, so that we can follow up specific incidents with the airlines.”

BBH Battery pack fire sparks safety warning Firefighters are urging people to unplug their electrical appliances overnight after a recent fire in Broadbridge Heath. Crews were called to the property in Cook Way at 1:22am on Tuesday (10 July), after the occupier called 999 for assistance. The fire is believed to have started from a portable battery power pack, often used for charging devices such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets. The battery pack was left on top of a mattress overnight and as a consequence, overheated and caught fire. Thankfully, nobody was injured and the fire was out on arrival. Speaking of the incident, Andrew Parsons, Fire Investigation Officer, said: “At this particular incident, there were two young occupants in the room at the time when the fire started. Thankfully the fire didn’t fully ignite and we were quickly alerted to the emergency. “I cannot emphasise the im-

portance of unplugging electrical charging devices before you go to bed enough. Many people are under the illusion that they will not be affected by a fire situation if they are to leave their charges unattended, but it is just not worth the risk.” Electrical Safety First offers the following safety advice: Use the power pack only for its intended use, e.g. to recharge your mobile phone. Keep it away from heat sources and liquids, such as, direct sunlight, humidity or water. Only use connecting cables provided with the battery pack and your mobile device. Don’t expose to extreme temperatures of hot or cold. Don’t leave a battery on prolonged charge when not in use. Don’t cover when charging. Charge in a well-ventilated environment. In the event of a cell leaking, don’t allow the liquid to come into contact with the skin or eyes. If

contact has been made, wash the affected area with water and seek medical advice. Please note - most power banks and bars use lithium-Ion chemistry batteries that will naturally get warm due to high currents flowing during charge and discharge cycles. It is normal for them to feel warm to touch, but if they are too hot to handle, do not use and seek advice from the manufacturer. West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is at the heart of West Sussex County Council’s Communities and Public Protection Directorate, working to support communities to become safer, stronger and more resilient through a combination of prevention, protection and response activities.

Secret Illuminated Gardens BOUTIQUE MARKET & CATWALK


The paperback edition of the latest novel by Billingshurst writer Juliet West is set for release on Thursday 26 July. Set in the Sussex village of Aldwick in the 1930s, ‘The Faithful’ follows 16-year-old Hazel as she is drawn in to the dark world of Oswald Mosley’s blackshirts. When the blackshirts set up a seaside camp near her home, she finds herself befriended by two very different people: Lucia, who is fiercely loyal to the party, and Tom, who is desperate to break away. Hazel and Tom fall in love, but as Britain is pulled towards war, Hazel’s life goes into freefall. A tangle of secrets threatens to snare her, and she must decide where to place her trust. Juliet West grew up in Worthing and studied history at Cambridge University. She worked as a journalist before taking an MA in Creative Writing at Chichester University, where she graduated with distinction and won the Kate Betts’ Memorial Prize. In addition to writing novels, Juliet is also

a copywriter for local marketing agency PMW Communications, where she uses her writing skills on wide range of projects. Juliet commented: “For many years fiction-writing was only a hobby, and to be honest I still pinch myself when I see my books in the shops. “I just love writing in all its forms, and I feel very lucky to be able to work with words and tell stories for a living.” Peter Sutton, Managing Director at PMW Communications, added: “Congratulations to Juliet on the launch of her latest novel in paperback. We’re delighted to have someone with her writing ability working with us, and I do wonder how many of our clients realise the copy for their website, or press advert, or their latest blog has been written by a successful and published novelist!” The Faithful is published by Pan Macmillan and is available to buy from leading book stores and online platforms.

Horsham’s Fact not Fiction casts Ian McElhinney and Elaine Paige for short film

Fact Not Fiction Films has confirmed that their short film ‘Missing a Note’ has cast the two remaining roles of John and

Angie to Northern Irish actor Ian McElhinney (Game of Thrones, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Zoo) and Laurence Olivier

Award nominee Elaine Paige OBE (Evita, Cats, Chess). Ian McElhinney has appeared in many films and television series in a career spanning more than thirty years. In recent times, his best-known roles are as Barristan Selmy in Game of Thrones and as General Dodonna in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Ian lives in Belfast and is married to playwright/ actress Marie Jones (Stones In His Pockets). Elaine Paige OBE is an English singer, actress, and radio presenter, best known for her work in musical theatre. In addition to being nominated for five Laurence Olivier Awards, Elaine has won many other awards for her theatre roles and has been called the First Lady of British Musical Theatre

due to her skill and longevity. ‘Missing a Note’ follows striving opera extraordinaire, John O’Connell, who, after retiring from his successful singing career, takes up examining in order to continue his love of singing. As young Molly Groves embarks on her first singing exam before the retired opera legend, John’s now diminishing short-term memory means Molly is in for a few puzzling surprises in this charming short drama. In April 2018, the role of Molly was cast to young actress/singer Darcy Jacobs (aged 11) who has appeared as young Cosette in the West End production of Les Misérables and most recently played Mercy Carney in Sam Mendes’ West End Play The Ferryman.

Official sponsors of

Director, Beth Moran said: “We are very happy to welcome Ian McElhinney and Elaine Paige to the cast of Missing a Note. Both are remarkable talents in their own right and fit the roles of John and Angie superbly. Together with young Darcy in the role of Molly, Ian and Elaine form an incredibly strong cast and I am very much looking forward to working with them.” The public can support the film in a number of ways by visiting the film website at: and the fundraising page at: Profits made from the film will go towards Alzheimer’s and Dementia research.

courts last year, we are now making tennis even more accessible to more local people, by introducing this annual membership for families at such an affordable rate. “After the excitement of the Wimbledon fortnight, I would encourage as many of you as possible to come down to the park and try out the new courts, then sign up for annual membership.” The tennis court improvements, made by the Council last year, include new fencing, new surfaces, re-marking and a new gate and booking system, ensuring that players can guarantee use of a court at their chosen time. The introduction of floodlighting allows players to maximise bookings throughout the year, with play continuing into the evening. All four courts can be used specifically for tennis over the summer months, however in the autumn and winter months, one court can be used for multi sports.

The pupils of Billingshurst Primary School have been kitted out with new cricket and football kits, thanks to So India, the Indian restaurant based in Pulborough. Kicking off the cricket season with a fresh new look, the kit will ensure the pupils are ready to compete against other schools from across the district. Thanks to So India’s generous sponsorship, the school has two new kits for each sport. The kit features the school willow tree logo on a royal blue shirt, and will get its first outing later in the term. A busy fixture list means the children will be putting the clothing through its

Without businesses like So India, the important extras would be missing from school life team when they run onto the pitch. We will be looking forward to hearing about their progress throughout the year. It’s a privi-

lege to support our local community and be part of something that helps children to be active and instil a love of sport.” Ieuan Griffiths, PE Coordinator at Billingshurst Primary School, explained: “With school budgets being squeezed still further, the support of local businesses is vital in providing equipment, and a wider sense of encouragement for the children from within their local community. We are grateful to So India for their generous support, the children were thrilled to put on the new kit and seemed raring to go. Without businesses like So India, the important extras would be missing from school life.”

Inquiry will settle bridleway diversion The fate of a popular bridleway at Christ’s Hospital School will be decided by a Public Inquiry. The way crosses extensive school playing fields and is enjoyed by the public on foot, bike and horseback. Objectors are hoping to stop West Sussex County Council diverting the bridleway to the southern perimeter of the sports pitches. The existing way is mainly a sealed path, shared with the school, which provides a convenient off-road link to Christ’s Hospital Railway Station. Paul Brown, case officer from the Open Spaces Society, said: “The path is a delightful opportunity to enjoy wide open vistas. The diverted way would be narrow artificial way, a mile in length, between hedges”. Christ’s Hospital School want the order, already made by WSCC, to be confirmed by a Planning Inspector ,in the interest of safeguarding pupils and staff. There have been

numerous objections from concerned locals, and from Horsham and Southwater Parish councils. Ruth Fletcher of Horsham and District Cycle Forum explained: “Cycling provides huge benefits to health, and safe routes for local trips are the most effective way of getting people cycling. This bridleway forms part of a short, traffic-free link between the north of Southwater village and Christ’s Hospital Station. It only needs improved surfacing at either end to make cycling to the station an attractive alternative to driving. A new fence or hedge can easily provide the security the school requires, so this ancient right of way can continue to serve the community.” The inquiry will be held at The Hertford Centre, Christ’s Hospital School on Tuesday 24 July at 10:00 a.m. The inquiry is open for the public to attend.

South Lodge host Collyer’s ‘Challenge of Management’

Over 100 Collyer’s students got a taste of the real world of business recently at the Challenge of Management 2018, run by Collyer’s at the 5 star South Lodge Hotel! The event enabled teams of ten students, each led by a top representative from the regional business community, to compete throughout the day in a number of business games and team building exercises. Expert business representatives and guest speakers supporting the event included: Mark Amaresekara (Kexidan Ltd), business expert Neil Bennett, Taylor Bennett (1st Class university 2018 graduate and ex-Collyer’s student), Nick Broom (PVL UK Ltd), Ann Donoghue (Collyer’s Governor and Senior International HR Professional); Sarah Ediss (Kreston Reeves), Mark Goodson (Accenture), Jenni Hadfield (South Lodge, an Executive Hotel), ex Collyer’s student Ella Howard (United Learning); Nick Kearley (Lloyds Banking Group), Kim Senior and ex-Collyer’s student Callum Byrne (both Assurity Consulting), Dominic Wakefield (Wakefield’s) and Raymond Warren (Raymond Warren Art). The popular and successful day is a key part of the college’s progression initiative, and gave students a taste of the real world of manage-

ment and employability skills. Collyer’s Employability Coordinator, Lucy Hargreaves, who ran the event, said: “Our students thought the experts were truly inspiring! These business professionals are all incredible supporters of Collyer’s and have given so much time, creativity, and energy, to help the next generation.” Throughout the day, attention was drawn to the learning opportunities that the tasks provided and real-life presentations were given about the routes available after college by 3 ex-Collyer’s students. Callum Byrne spoke about his experience as an apprentice at Assurity Consulting, Taylor Bennett gave an insight into university life, and Ella Howard, project manager at United Education, spoke about her success story. As well as benefiting from this practical and personal advice, student teams enjoyed an interactive ice-breaker, and then competed in a Sculpture and Presentation Competition, an Earthquake Dilemma, and the ever-popular Production Challenge. Using real life examples and techniques, teams discussed, planned and presented their ideas, all to win prizes throughout the day. Collyer’s Ian McAlister, who hosted the Sculpture and Presen-

tation Challenge, was delighted: “Throughout the day I was impressed and humbled by the sheer talent within the room. Students took the event very seriously, were ready to learn and certainly dressed for success!” The individual student prizes on the day went to Kieran Minihane (Networking Award, sponsored by PVL UK Ltd) and the overall top prize for Best Student Contribution (sponsored by Wakefield’s) was presented to Ingrid Tiber. Ingrid Tiber said: “I really appreciate this college and the business leaders putting in so much effort, money and time for all of us to have this experience, and to allowing us to develop our skills for the future! It is obvious they all care about helping us.” Deputy Principal Steve Martell, who hosted the event, said: “This is a complex day with many moving parts, so I cannot thank Lucy Hargreaves enough for organising it! Massive thanks also to Collyer’s Tracy Bennett, Nicola Algar, Hannah Roberts, Ian McAlister, Ellen Bateman, Ivan Morgan, Clare Savage and Roger Raymond for their outstanding support. “Enormous congratulations to Ingrid Tiber, Kieran Minihane and all of our talented students, who are an absolute credit to Collyer’s.”

Official opening of Horsham’s new chocolate experience Horsham District Council’s Chairman, Cllr Peter Burgess, officially opened Horsham’s new chocolate house Chococo on Thursday 12 July in Horsham’s Carfax. Chococo’s main ethos is that it uses fresh ingredients to make its products – there are no added preservatives or artificial colourings.

Horsham Battle of the Bands needs your support as it enters it’s 26th Year! Sponsorship opportunities for businesses available now!

This much loved local competition brings together the best in new and established local talent. Over the years the competition has for many been their first opportunity to play an outdoor show with professional sound. Mark Daly, former chairman of the Horsham District Live Music Alliance (HDLMA) and QM Studios Trustee said: “The question everybody asks is: “Did anyone famous come out of the BOTB competition?” My reply is always: “That’s not what BOTB is about, it’s about giving the local community of artists the experience of playing at a professional live event and having a whole lot of fun while doing it.”” The event has been running since 1993, The one night event was originally held at Roffey Sports and Social Club and featured six bands, the inaugural winners were “Decadent Dance”, featuring Stuart Brand who is still a leading light of the local music scene. The event became bigger over the years and entered its heyday when in 1999 local sound engineer Graham Ansell and Trevor Beadle from Horsham District Council had the idea of forming the HDLMA. Battle of the Bands then featured heats at the Extra Time Bar, Broadbridge Heath and an autumn final on the Carfax Bandstand. It became so popular it was decided to move the heats to the Drill Hall in Horsham. From 2004 to 2007 the originals competition featured six heats of six bands at the Drill Hall followed by a final at the Carfax. There was also a covers final at the Drill Hall and an acoustic final at The Holbrook Club. Up to 500 fans at a time packed the Drill Hall for the heats and over a thousand would turn up for the final in the Carfax. The Alliance and the competition suffered a major

blow when Graham Ansell sadly died of cancer in 2007. However with Mandy Ansell taking over the running of the Studio, BOTB continued to be held by the HDLMA. In 2013 the event became a one night originals final at the Drill Hall and acoustic final at the Holbrook Club. It was then that the HDLMA decided to call time

on the competition, but rather than let the event die, a group of local musicians and promoters formed a sub-committee to keep it going, moving the final to the Human Nature Garden in the summer, with cover bands on a Saturday afternoon, originals in the evening, and acoustics on Sunday afternoon. From 2014 to 2017 the event was still largely underwritten by the income from QM Studios. As the trustees of the HDLMA have moved to focus on the fantastic work of QM Studios resulting in the HDLMA being wound up and a focus on the studios, Jamie Stanley (Horsham Rocks) and Sam Albrow (High Gain Event Services) with the support of friends and colleagues are keen to ensure the event continues to be a success giving local musicians at all stages of their musical journey a platform to showcase their talent. Like any successful event that continues to grow, Battle of the Bands relies on local support to make it happen and cover the cost of everything from prizes and staging to toilets and security. Much of this comes from ticket sales, bar and food concessions. However to make the event a real success we are also looking for sponsors for this years event, with longer term opportunities also available. We are inviting local local

Tale of the tape for Loxwood Joust Knights Sir Thomas of Loxwood

Sir Hector

Sir Luke

Sir Kenneth



For many years Sir Thomas has defended the meadows of Loxwood and his joyous, kind and generous people against the advances of Sir Hector and Sir Kenneth. Returning to the Loxwood Meadow once again on the 4th, 5th, 11th and 12th August, Sir Thomas is joined by Sir Luke, to Joust for his honour, lands and people. Learn here of the four knights, their skills, daring and valour, and decide which you will support at this momentous jousting tournament. Sir Thomas of Loxwood Sir Thomas of Loxwood is a good and true knight, who is son of Queen Georgiana and brother to Princess Catherine. His colours are red and yellow, and of his 224 tournaments, he has won 176 and never killed whilst jousting. Many times has Sir Thomas has defended his lands and his people against the advances of Sir Hector and Sir Kenneth. He has continued his training with Sir Luke, and is ready to prevail triumphant once again by applying the ways of the old knights and Sir Luke’s knowledge of his rival. With the full support of the Loxwood people, Sir Thomas is eager to once

again prevent Sir Hector from throwing the Loxwood Lands into turmoil as he strikes back after last year’s defeat. Sir Luke Sir Luke is one of the most experienced knights alive today, with ancestry dating back to the legendary Camelot. He served the King for many years, and in times of great unrest, he was recognised for his prowess on a horse and aggressive fighting style, as he would always do what it took to win the fight. Sir Luke left the wars and battles to find peace, until Sir Thomas asked that he once again help him defend his lands against the menace that is Sir Hector and the ruffian known as Sir Kenneth. Sir Luke’s colours are blue with white and red crosses. He has entered 3,456 tournaments, won 1,263 and killed 296 knights whilst jousting. Sir Kenneth Sir Kenneth is a berserker knight and an apprentice to Sir Hector. An aggressive Jouster and swordsman he will go for the kill rather than have his man yield. Riding in his black and yellow colours, Sir Kenneth has slight regard for the rules of chivalry. He has 218 tournaments under

his belt, has killed 11 knights in jousting and has won 59 of his tournaments. Sir Kenneth and Sir Hector share a hatred for the Loxwood Royal Family and have tried to depose Queen Georgiana several times. They often work as a team against a single knight and will try to fix the Joust’s results, which is well outside the rules! Sir Hector Dressed in black with crossed silver axes, Sir Hector is one of the most vicious, malicious and hated knights that has ever cheated his way to victory. Never popular, he has won 168 of his 440 tournaments and killed 41 knights. Sir Hector lives up to all the stories about him. He has a shameless disregard for the rules of chivalry, station and decency; and keen to claim the lands of Loxwood as his own, the bad feeling between Sir Thomas and Sir Hector palpable. He and Sir Luke are fierce competitors in the jousting arena, with every meeting resembling a clash of titans. However, it now appears that Princess Catherine, daughter to the Queen and sister to Sir Thomas, has caught the eye of Sir Hector!

School and housebuilder make plastic fantastic

Housebuilder Barratt Homes has teamed up with Thakeham Primary School, near its Warren Grove development in Storrington, to promote some important sustainability messages. The innovative project, designed to educate pupils about the importance of recycling, has seen the school collecting unwanted hard plastic toys and rigid plastics such as tubs and trays – replacing them with a recycled playground house and bench for the pupils to enjoy.

te Quo rict st i D The when Post ing book

In line with its own sustainability messages, which sees Barratt Homes recycle as much as 95% of its own onsite waste at its new homes site at Warren Grove instead of going to landfill, the developer will be working with its recycling partner, Powerday to deliver the project. With recycling plastic currently very high on the media agenda, the housebuilder sees this as an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of recycling plastic as part of its sustainability

agenda. Lynnette St-Quintin, Sales & Marketing Director for Barratt Homes Southern Counties, commented: “This is a very topical campaign, and one that will see pupils in schools neighbouring our new homes developments understand the importance of recycling. Whilst recycling begins at home, it is also important for everyone to understand the great lengths we go to in the work place to ensure that sustainability remains a key

objective as we make every effort to reduce landfill. Together with Powerday, we have delivered skips to many schools throughout West Sussex and collected as much recyclable plastic as possible. Pupils have been rewarded for their efforts with a recycled piece of playground furniture.” Samantha Norton, the Headteacher at Thakeham Primary School, said: “It is so important that children are made aware of their responsibility to the environment, and this has been a fantastic campaign in building that consideration for how they re-use waste. It has helped them see the effect their contribution to society makes on a larger scale too.” Simon Little from Powerday said: “We were happy to assist Barratt Homes to deliver this recycling project to local schools. The developer goes above and beyond the necessary requirements to ensure sustainable construction practices at its new homes sites, and this is an approach that we feel should be adopted by the housebuilding industry.” Warren Grove in Storrington offers a range of modern three and four- bedroom family homes, with prices starting from £339,995. Warren Grove was built for energy efficiency, sustainability and in an environmentally responsible way.

AJ Walters win the Gullick Cup – again!

Nuthurst 130-5 off 20 overs – AJ Walters 134-2 (17 overs) AJ Walters won by 8 wickets Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter The AJW Group from Slinfold - specialists in the supply, exchange, repair and lease of commercial and business aircraft spare parts – reprised their 2015 Gullick Cup victory when they beat Nuthurst relatively comfortably at Horsham Cricket Club on Tuesday evening, despite Nuthurst being no strangers to success in the competition, which they last won four years ago. Nuthurst succeeded at the toss and elected to bat, posting a respectable, if not killer, 130-5 off their 20 six ball over allocation, Johnny Willis and Raggy Singh both retiring with thirties under the rules of the competition. Nick Sherlicker had come in with a cameo, includ-

ing two well-struck sixes, while Richard Hancock took 2-28 off his allotted four overs - but AJW conceded 34 extras. Had Nuthurst got enough runs? AJW Captain, Craig Skilton was confident that his side could reach the target, telling the District Post: “We’ve got a team of ex-cricketers and have scored higher in previous rounds, 180 in one game, but we’ll see!” Replying, AJW were 69-1 at the half way stage – well up with the rate, with sound batting to come, and they duly went on to secure victory with three overs to spare after Hancock compulsorily retired on 33 and Skilton ended with 26 not out, saying: “It’s great to win the Gullick again – our players ought to play more!” The well-supported, convivial Gullick Cup competition, with much banter among friendly rivals, began in 1972, originally as a plate competition for the Mirfield Cup.

Premier League round up Saturday July 14 - Sussex Premier League Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter The Horsham and Roffey games are reported separately, elsewhere in the Premier League: at Cuckfield, Eastbourne were in serious trouble, but recovered from 88-7 to post the highest score of the day – 302-9, the tail wagging vigorously, with the last two wickets putting on 214 invaluable runs. Cuckfield were then 123-3 but lost wickets steadily, Eastbourne winning by 69 runs. Ifield’s home game was a disaster for the struggling hosts – they won the toss but their confidence was unfounded as they were shot out for a paltry 67, last man out Mike Norris scoring 33. Simon

Hetherton was the principle destroyer with 6-21, supported by Sussex’s Luke Wells with 3-9 off 13 balls. Brighton & Hove then smashed off the runs in just 8.5 overs to win by 9 wickets, Wells’ 48 including 9 fours and a six. At Middleton Hastings started well, getting to 70-2, but Matthew Reynolds took 5-58 as the visitors slumped to a totally inadequate 148 all out. With 64 overs to get the runs, Middleton cruised home to win by 6 wickets with more than 26 overs left in the bank. With seven games still to be played, Ifield remain bottom with 102 points, 14 fewer than penultimate club Hastings. Eastbourne are now third, Middleton 7th and strong looking Cuckfield surprisingly 8th.

signed to give the opportunity to some non-regular cricketers to participate, and is played in that spirit. Presenting the cup, organiser David Horsman paid tribute to umpires Tom Hogsflesh and Hema Kumar along with praise for scorer Neil Chartres – and, especially, to Richard Marshall for another good pitch. This year the Mirfield Cup took a break ahead of re-launching the competition to mark its 60th anniversary next season. Like the Gullick, the Mirfield Cup, with its perennially popular final, a longstanding highlight in Horsham Cricket Club’s extraordinarily busy calendar of matches, is played under T20 conditions. That formula was introduced when the Mirfield – named after Frank Mirfield, an early President of Horsham CC – began in 1959, long before the format’s adoption by the professional game worldwide.

Roffey draw with timid reigning champions Saturday July 14 – Sussex Premier League Roffey 299-4 declared (54 overs) – East Grinstead 203-5 (56 overs) Match drawn - Roffey 12 points – East Grinstead 8 Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter

Following rain abandonments in the sides’ previous three Premier League encounters - lastly when Roffey had East Grinstead tottering at 20-3 with the cream of their batting gone - this was a disappointing game. Roffey prefer to chase but as East Grinstead have been bowled out cheaply three times so far this season (for 125 at Middleton and, twice at home – for 123 against Preston Nomads and 135 versus Ifield), Roffey elected to bat, considering that their hosts might be vulnerable batting second. But, the pitch won – it was too benign for even Roffey’s varied attack to make sufficient break throughs and East Grinstead made no effort to get the runs, despite the flat wicket, fast outfield and surprisingly short boundaries. Roffey batted enterprisingly, beginning with an 116 run opening partnership and after Theo Rivers was out for 37 Ben Manenti and Jibran Khan (76) carried on, with Rohit Jagota and Usman Khan – 41 not out – chipping in with useful contributions. But it was Manenti who stole the show with his first Premier League century in a genuine opening batsman’s innings, taming the bowlers by interspersing sound defence with a range of attacking strokes, unfurling 21 fours featuring numer-

ous cultured drives. With two sixes, his 86 ball 113 confirmed that, following his recent hundred for Kent 2nds, he is far more than just a devastating T20 bludgeoner. Bradley Hatchett took all four wickets for 87 runs, his brother Lewis going wicketless this time. Declaring, giving Grinstead 56 overs to get 300 was a positive move, but after losing two early wickets they just meandered along, unambitiously content with denying Roffey victory rather that pushing for a win themselves to boost their chances of retaining their title. Cautious Grinstead finished 97 runs short, Manenti taking 3-70 and Rohit Jagota 2-29, Roffey skipper Matt Davies saying: “Only one side wanted to win it really,” Ben Mamenti told the District Post: “It was great to score my first 100 for Roffey, I’ve had some decent scores but it was good to get a ton in a big match. It was just a pity that we couldn’t win it – the ball did beat the bat occasionally, but the wicket was so good and unless they were prepared to go for it we couldn’t force a win.” Fellow opener Theo Rivers added: “I’m absolutely chuffed for Ben – he’s such a good bat with plenty of proper cricket shots. Early on the ball was swinging out there – Lewis Hatchett is a good bowler!” Roffey remain top of the table, nine points clear of Brighton & Hove and, on Saturday Roffey return home to welcome sixth-placed Preston Nomads, having beaten them at Fulking comprehensively twice earlier in the season, in the league and the cup. Then, on Sunday, Roffey have a long trip to Hastings in the semi final of the Sussex Cup.

Billingshurst back on the winning trail Saturday July 14 - Sussex League Division 2 Billingshurst 240-3 dec (52 overs) Haywards Heath 200 all out (42.1) Billingshurst won by 40 runs Billingshurst 30 points – Haywards Heath 7 Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter Billingshurst elected to bat first at Haywards Heath and were soon 5-1, but recovered well, posted a good score and then bowled out the hosts for a comfortable win with time to spare. Skipper Tom Haynes made 65 and, with Stuart Barber put on 151 for the second wicket, Barber scoring exactly 100, with 10 fours and a six, enabling Haynes to declare on 240-3. When Haywards Heath replied Andy Barr quickly

dismissed one of the openers before despatching the number three first ball. Haynes then picked up two scalps, but at 133-4 Heath were still very much in the game – until Ben Wil-

liams worked his way through the middle order with 4-69 from 16 overs ahead of Andy Barr returning to take the winning wicket,

Haynes finishing with 3-33 and Barr 3-49. The 30 point win leaves Billingshurst 47 shy of leaders Mayfield. On Saturday Billingshurst are travelling again – to Keymer Road, Hassocks to take on sixth placed St James’s Montefiore, who beat Billingshurst by 6 wickets at Jubilee Fields in May. Former Billingshurst Captain Ben Williams told the District Post: “We always bat better going in first and it was good to get a good win on Saturday. We were missing players when we played Montefiore before and we’re a better side now, with some useful batsmen and bowlers. Andy Miller has been so unlucky with the ball and I’m sure the tide will turn for him. We’ve got seven games to go and we can get back up into the Premier – we just need to keep doing the same as we did at Haywards Heath!”

Depleted Horsham shaded by Preston Nomads Saturday July 14 - Sussex Premier League Horsham 130-9 (37.2 overs) Preston Nomads 136-7 (37.2 overs) Preston Nomads (30 points) –won by 3 wickets – Horsham 5 points

Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter Horsham’s long undefeated run ended when, much depleted, they came unstuck against Preston Nomads at Fulking last Saturday. But, despite scoring a seemingly inadequate total, Horsham pushed Nomads hard and had them on 99-6 until feisty cameos from the lower order saw the hosts home. Nomads inserted Horsham and 17 year old Rhys Beckwith was soon forced to retire hurt after being hit on the head by tall first class Kiwi cricketer Blair Tickner, saying: “He was bowling very short and I didn’t pick up the one that got me.” To Horsham’s detriment, Sussex had backtracked on their strategy of releasing players not required by the county and Horsham were far from full strength. Captain Michael Thornely top scored with 38, but while several other batsmen got starts, nobody was able to go on to make a really telling contribution as Navin Patel, Tim Moses and Will Collard each

took 2 wickets for Nomads. When Nomads replied, Mika Ekstrom dismissed both openers cheaply, but Stuart Faith’s 48 took them to 91-3 before three wickets fell in quick succession, giving Horsham a sniff of victory before belligerence from the tail saw Nomads home, Ekstrom finishing with 3-42 , Liam Ward 2-10 and Joe Ashmore 2-41. Mika Ekstrom told us: “Michael Thornely was the mainstay of our innings – it was a bouncy wicket with a tinge of green and the outfield was very lush and slow, so our 130 was worth around 180.” This was a potentially winnable match for Horsham, yet, although they bowled well, denied the services of Sussex’s George Garton, Will Beer and Nick Oxley and with Tom Haines still recovering from concussion, Tom Clark nursing a fielding induced neck strain and Tom Johnson and others unavailable, they did not quite have the fire power. This Saturday Horsham, now fifth, are back at Cricketfield Road to take on eighth in the table Cuckfield, who, despite pre-season expectations suggesting a serious challenge for the title, have been surprisingly struggling, notwithstanding the presence of Aussie Big Bash exponent Sam Whiteman, who scored 130 against Horsham when Cuckfield won earlier in the season.

Sunday July 15 England & Wales Cricket Board National Club Championship – Round 5 Chingford 149 all out (39.2 overs) Roffey 151-4 (36.2 overs) Roffey won by 6 wickets Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter

Again carrying the flag as the sole Sussex team to survive in the competition, as they have done consistently in recent years, Roffey are through to the last eight in the 40 over ECB National Club Championship – their highest ever placing. A glance at the scores might suggest that this was a comfortable win – it was in the latter stages of the game – but it needed considerable resolve to get Roffey

across the winning line when, chasing a seemingly modest target, they got off to an horrendous start, before being rescued by an outstanding 135 run fourth wicket partnership. Chingford had beaten current cup holder Wanstead in the previous round, but, at the end of their tiring cricket week, Chingford, fourth in the Essex Premier League, had been bowled out for 114 the day before. Bowling is probably Chingford’s strength, but, after being put in at Roffey and losing an early wicket, they built a sound launch platform, only for Roffey to grab control with three wickets in six balls. George Fleming saw off the two seemingly well set batsmen from consecutive deliveries, including an excellent Max Rivers boundary catch, before Leigh Harrison snaffled a sharp return hit to dismiss an incom-

ing batsman first ball. Suddenly Chingford were 45-4, re-starting their innings with two new batsmen and, while the fifth wicket partnership was worth 62 and four of their later batsmen reached double figures, tight bowling and sure fielding applied severe restriction. 107-5 became 129-8 as Luke Barnard (2-25), Alex Collins (3-21) and Theo Rivers worked their way through the middle and lower order. At tea Chingford were circumspect and Roffey confident, but the roles were soon reversed when both Roffey openers were back in the clubhouse just for just a single apiece. From 4-2 worse followed when Usman Khan was trapped LBW and at 10-3 with the bowlers in the ascendancy Roffey had Everest to climb if they were to progress towards their dream of National Cup success. However, Jibran Khan has been in good form with a recent Premier League century under his belt and Matt Davies delivered a proper captain’s innings. Watchfully at first, the pair gradually rebuilt Roffey’s response, until, with confidence growing, they re-took command, enthralling the large

It was a bit of a sticky pitch with the ball not quite coming on to the bat.. crowd with a memorable, highly commendable win. Seeking to seal victory in the grand manner, Jibran Khan persished just before the end, but Josh Fleming came in to hit the winning boundary off his first ball. Davies finished with a polished and assured 59 not out, telling the District Post: “It was a bit nerve wracking going out there when we were ten for three and I haven’t had to bat too often for us this season, so it was a great game to win.” Jibran Khan added: “It was a bit of a sticky pitch with the ball not quite coming on to the bat and I didn’t think we were going to do it!” While Coach Simon Fearnley – the only person on the ground confident of a Roffey win after the three early wickets fell, said: “I felt we had the depth to pull it off and we’ve still got all four competitions in play.” In the Quarter Final Roffey travel to Brentwood on Sunday August 5th. The other teams left in the National Cup are: Clevedon (north Somerset), Ormskirk (west Lancashire), Richmondshire (Yorkshire), Stanmore and Wolverhampton. Next Sunday Roffey travel to Hastings in the semi final of the Sussex Cup and on Sunday the 29th they play at Horsham on the area finals day in the National T20 Cup.
