Scorching weekend weather saw thousands flock to Loxwood Joust With activities and entertainment taking place every half hour from 10am to 6pm, the jousting arena was surrounded by fans as the sound of thunderous hooves and four magnificent Jousting Knights ran the tilt whilst displaying breath taking horsemanship. With Sir Hector of Horsham aided by the dastardly Sir Kenneth, challenging Sir Thomas of Loxwood for his honour and lands, the battle for victory was both in the saddle and on the ground with skilful sword fighting. The quick witted banter and shameful displays of cheating by Sir Hector and Sir Kenneth saw the crowds booing, cheering, and laughing, as Sir Thomas of Loxwood and Sir Luke fought with speed, talent and chivalry. However, Sir Hector’s celebratory moves when he was declared the weekend’s champion, were challenged by a crestfallen Sir Thomas who vowed to come back victorious and ‘knock him from his horse’ in the second weekends tournament. The festival which prides itself on adding new attractions each year did not disappoint, with many visitors placing blessings upon the wishing tree and learning about the nature spirits from the Faerie Goddess Mother in the woodland Faerie Realm. In addition, couples and families celebrated love and friendship in handfasting ceremonies, and enjoying the sumptuous food and captivating entertainment in the luxury of the mediaeval banqueting marquee. Jo Morris a first time visitor to

the Joust said ”This is our first year at the Joust and it is a big hit with all four of us. We were not quite sure what to expect, but there is just so much to see and do here. The children have loved the glitter and wound face painting, making a small pewter sword, watching the blacksmith work, talking to the witch and hammering out their names onto the small copper shields. Everyone is just so friendly and the people in the mediaeval village were great at answering all of our strange questions. My husband and son loved sword school and my husband really enjoyed using a real metal sword! We all adored the excitement of the Jousting Tournament and each wanted a different knight to win. We will definitely be back next year.” Whilst many took full advantage of the cool respite in the woodland area, the birds of prey made full use of the spiralling thermals, with Zulu the yellow billed Kite soaring to over 50meters before plummeting out of the sky to capture the lure being swung by the falconer. In addition, larger than ever this year, some 200 plus knights, 50 bowmen and more than 20 gunners formed the two sides of the ardent battle between Duke of Buckingham and the Sussex Rebels. Fighting hard and keen to integrate himself with the King of England, the Duke of Buckinghamshire fought well to protect his wealthy kinsmen and with cannons firing, the Sussex Rebels were defeated. Maurice Bacon organiser of the

event said “We have had an amazing weekend and it is so good to see the excitement and recognition of the Joust building year on year. The Loxwood Joust provides in insight into life in mediaeval times, with living history creating and making it interesting, informative and fun for young and old alike. It is great to see visitors really getting into the spirit of the mediaeval ages whilst trying on armour, handling

swords, bows, helmets and taking in the shows from the executioner, mediaeval housewife, mediaeval chef and Queen Georgiana of Loxwood.” He continued “The feedback we have had and the posts on our social media pages have been amazing, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to next weekend’s festival of mediaeval mayhem on the 11th and 12th August.”

Fire service issues water safety advice as summer holidays get underway West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is urging people to take care in water over the school holidays, and stay safe. The ongoing hot weather means plenty of families will be planning to go swimming in various locations across the countryside, but some areas can pose a risk. Around 190 people lose their lives on UK and Irish coasts each year, and over half never even planned to enter the water, according to the RNLI. Cold water shock is extremely prevalent despite heatwaves this summer and British seas and rivers are cold enough to leave you helpless in seconds. Adrian Carter, West Sussex Fire & Rescue Group Manager said: “With the hot weather not going away anytime soon, it’s likely many people will be out enjoying the sunshine on the beach or at lakes, rivers and swimming pools around the county, but your priority must be to stay safe. “It is often poor safety water practices out in the countryside that pose the most risk, and in some cases not following these can endanger lives. “If you want to go swimming, make sure you go to a supervised site with lifeguards on duty, look for signs and advice about the specific dangers at the place where you are, and be mindful of currents. If you get caught by a current, swim with it and call for help.” Swimming in appropriate locations is still good exercise, but the fire service also has a number of safety tips for in the water. They include: • Always look for warning and guidance signs • Swim parallel with the shore,

not away from it • Never go into the water after consuming alcohol • Do not enter fast flowing water • Be aware of underwater hazards • Always take someone with you when going into or being near water • If you start to feel cold, get out as quickly as possible • Be mindful of currents – if in trouble, swim with the current and shout for help • Be aware of your own strength and get out if you start to feel tired 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

How to keep your cool walking in the heat: Advice on safe summer walking from the Ramblers

The Great British Summer really has turned out to be just that this year; perfect for enjoying the outdoors. But while the hot dry weather is ideal for taking some wonderful walks with no risk of your sandwiches getting soggy, it’s important to take some simple precautions to stay safe while walking in the heat, says the Ramblers. The walking charity is sharing its advice on important precautions to take to make the most of your summer strolls, stay safe and healthy and protect the countryside too, as the dry landscape has increased the risk of fires. Tom Platt, director of advocacy and engagement for the Ramblers, said: “It’s great to be able to take advantage of this fantastic summer weather to go out walking, but it’s really important to take a few measures to stay safe in these unusually high temperatures. “As always, we encourage anyone enjoying our beautiful countryside to behave responsibly to help protect our environment. And as the landscape is so incredibly dry, it’s more important than ever to be extra vigilant for fire risks. Walkers can help by keeping an eye out for things like broken glass that can start fires and reporting any fires that appear to be unattended as quickly as possible.” Ramblers top tips for hot weather walking: With the mercury regularly reaching 30 degrees, avoid walking at the hottest times of day, between 11am and 3pm. Plan your

walks in the early morning or the evening and take frequent breaks in the shade. Carry plenty of water with you - more than you would usually in cooler weather - and sip regularly to avoid getting dehydrated. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty. Make sure you apply plenty of sun cream (a minimum of SPF 30 is ideal). Wear loose, lightweight clothing so that you don’t overheat and wear a hat, even on overcast days, to keep the sun off your face and head. Consider doing a shorter walk than usual if it’s really hot, or work out a spot where you can cut your walk short if you need to. Keep out of the sun in the hottest parts of the day However unlikely it seems, remember the weather can change. Pack a light waterproof jacket and remember that if you’re walking in the hills, it is often much cooler higher up than lower down, so an extra layer can be useful. In these very dry conditions, help keep the countryside safe by looking out for fire risks and report unattended fires or activities which could cause fires to the emergency services. Don’t forget your four-legged friends. If you’re taking your dog along on your walk, make sure you take some water for them too, and let them have a lie-down in the shade when they’re looking tired.

Nightingale Road, Horsham – Horsham

Our Town community scheme goes from strength to strength said: “I am delighted that the Our Town - Horsham scheme has been so successful, and in such a short period of time, and I applaud the positive response from our local retailers and other community outlets. “I am particularly pleased that the Council’s own offices at Parkside in Chart Way are now part of the scheme with our customer services reception team trained to help more vulnerable people. “It all goes to show that Horsham truly is a friendly and supportive place to live and work, with most people and shops always ready and willing to help somebody needing assistance. “What this initiative does is give vulnerable people the confidence

Our Town – Horsham, is a community support initiative, coordinated by Horsham District Council, which launched earlier this year to provide informal support within town centre locations for vulnerable people. Since its launch, its popularity has continued to grow and local shops, venues, and businesses, have welcomed the scheme with open arms. The scheme aims to give vulnerable people the confidence to remain independent, by providing a network of shop locations which people can access for help and assistance if they are feeling afraid, frightened or confused. Championed by a team of self-advocates from The Butterfly Project and Strawford Centre Horizons Groups, the initiative provides shop staff with basic training on

how to help a vulnerable person. The location is then identified with an ‘Our Town’ window sticker, so people needing a little more assurance and support will know that they can go into the shop and ask for help if they need it. Most of the time somebody, who is feeling vulnerable, will just need reassurance by way of a smile, a friendly face, or the chance to grab a few minutes to calm down. Occasionally, some people may need more assistance, so those who sign up to the initiative will be issued with a card that has a contact number for a chosen family member, support worker or carer who can be contacted if they need a greater level of support.

New Rotary President

Penny Barnes It was recently announced that Penny Barnes has been made the new President of Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club. Penny joined Rotary as a founder member of Brighton & Hove Breakfast Rotary Club (the first dual gender Club in our District) in 1993 and having moved to Thakeham, she joined the Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club in 2000. She is Sussex born and bred, having been brought up at North Farm, Washington; lived and worked in Hove for some time and finally moved back to her beloved Sussex Downs. Penny worked for some years as an Estate Agent in Hove and then for the Sussex Mutual Building Society; a 3 year stint as an asst producer for Miranda Birch’s afternoon programme at BBC Radio Sussex and finally 7 years as the Sussex Fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Amongst

events she organised for MCCC were the very popular annual Son et Lumieres, two at Wiston House, one at Sompting Abbots and two at Michelham Priory. Penny and her husband Michael have 5 sons between them and six grandchildren living between Aberdeen, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ashington and Thakeham. For her year, Penny said: “Rotary has changed tremendously over the years, scrapping rules which would not suit our younger generation with their long working hours. We try to help those in our Community, whether they be the young or the old, not only to donate or help financially, but to be involved as much as we can, where we can, in meeting their needs. At the same time, we have a wonderful fellowship within our Club, which makes all that we do, whether it be our monthly cinema evenings, fundraising events, singalong afternoons at Sussex Down, such fun to be involved with. I am honoured to lead Rotary’s efforts to make a real difference in our area. “We are very fortunate to have a number of new members who have joined our Club over the past couple of years, and it is important that people from our area know that our Club is always looking for like minded members who want to enjoy fellowship and to help in a variety of ways within our Community.”

Local Samaritans support National ‘Big Listen’ Samaritans sharing their listening skills this summer

Volunteers from Horsham and Crawley Samaritans campaigned at Horsham station last month, as part of a nationwide push called The Big Listen to raise funds for Samaritans and show how really listening to another person can be the first step to saving a life. A Number of volunteers from the local branch set up stands at the station during peak times to try and raise awareness of the importance of helping someone talk through their problems by really listening to them. The Samaritans emphasised SHUSH listening tips for commuters – Show you care, Have patience, Use open questions, Say it back and Have courage. Volunteer Eileen Sharpe from

Samaritans’ Branch in Denne Road Horsham said: “Up to one in five adults have thought about taking their own life at some point. When people feel as low as that, they really need to be able to talk about their feelings, which means they need people to listen. “With The Big Listen, we were encouraging people to look out for one another, and if you see someone who may be struggling, ask how they are. It’s something we don’t often ask people, or we ask very superficially and never expect an in-depth answer.” Branch Director Roger Dugdale explained: “That’s usually what Samaritans do – we stop and take the time to actually ask people how they’re really feeling and give them

the opportunity to really talk about it, something we don’t often do in our daily lives. “We never give advice, because we think people generally know the answers to their problems themselves and, that talking things through, they can un-jumble what’s going on and seek their own solutions which are better than being told what to do, and much more powerful.” Eileen Sharpe is the local Branch Partnerships Director. She provided an insight into the work she does: “ As well as answering the telephone, emails and text messages, people also talk to us face to face in the Branch. Within the Partnership role we support people in other ways too; we visit our local Salvation Army and Crawley Open House as well as training listeners in Lewes Prison.” Funds raised by The Big Listen will help Samaritans keep its services free for anyone who needs them, as well as helping to recruit, train and support volunteers and run local branches across the UK.

Horsham children’s charity raises £65,000 with Cream Teas campaign

Horsham-based charity Action Medical Research is delighted to announce that its 2018 Cream Teas campaign has raised around £65,000, with donations still coming in! Emma Morgan, Action’s Head of Events, said: “We are thrilled. We cannot thank everyone in Sussex enough for their kind generosity. Every one of our boxes sold really does make a difference.” Action is a UK-wide children’s charity, which funds desperately needed research to tackle the diseases that devastate the lives of so many of our children. Dr Dawn Harper is an Action

Ambassador. She lent her support to this year’s campaign and is delighted with the results: “Action asked if I could helped support this year’s campaign and I jumped at the chance! “I’m just so pleased that thousands of people across the UK got the chance to enjoy a little time out, indulge in a delicious treat and feel good knowing that their kind donations could really help save tiny lives.” The 2018 national campaign was launched in April and gave people the opportunity to buy cream tea boxes online until 15 June. Each box contained:

2x classic plain scones A jar of Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream (40g) 2x jars of Tiptree strawberry conserve (28g) Yorkshire tea A knife and serviette A small army of Action volunteers then helped pack the many thousands of boxes before they were delivered nationwide on Thursday 28 June. “Without our wonderful volunteers, this campaign would just not work” admitted Emma Morgan, “We are so lucky to have so many passionate supporters who share our vision to help find future cures. “The Action Cream Teas campaign is really starting to become a calendar event for people and I can’t wait for next year!” Action has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952, including helping to introduce the first polio vaccines in the UK, developing the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and testing the rubella vaccine. The charity is currently funding research into areas including premature birth, epilepsy, asthma, scarlet fever, cerebral palsy, brain cancer and some rare and distressing conditions.

New game to help families get a good night’s sleep The NHS in Sussex has teamed up with West Sussex County Council and Focus Games to help reduce the impact of poor sleep on children across the county. Sleep issues affect around 40% of children and young people, and an increasing number of children are being diagnosed with sleep disorders. In West Sussex, specialist health visitor Ruth Silverman is addressing this issue by looking at innovative ways to help professionals working with children and families to learn more about the importance of sleep for children. Ruth, in partnership with Focus Games, has developed The Sleep Game, a board game training resource, designed to help professionals working with children and families improve their knowledge about sleep; such as health visitors, school nurses, nursery and early years staff, and children’s centre staff. Ruth said: “In recent years I’ve been focussing on improving sleep awareness and training for a range of professionals in West Sussex. The Sleep Game supports this training and is a fun way of learning new knowledge and skills for any professional working with children.” In times of need and doubt, parents usually turn to a range of professionals for advice on their child’s health or sleep issues. Providing these groups with practical information and relevant training on children’s sleep will help them to improve their knowledge and confidence and ensure that children and their parents benefit from safe and useful advice on sleep. Focus Games, West Sussex County Council and Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust are delighted to announce that The Sleep Game is now available for purchase by organisations or individuals interested in sleep training,

and hope that the game will help families across the country to get a good night’s sleep. Stephen Hillier, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, said: “I think this is absolutely brilliant. A bad night’s sleep stops any of us from being at our best and for children whose young minds are developing at a rapid rate, sleep is especially important. This is a fun and interactive way to learn about why sleep is so vital, and the game will give professionals better knowledge to then pass down to parents, carers and young people about the enormous lifelong value of healthy sleeping habits.” The Sleep Game is designed to promote discussion, helping players talk about issues related to sleep and allowing them to learn from each other. Two teams of players compete against each other to reach the finish line, asking and answering questions about sleep as they move around the board. Games can be played a variety of ways as part of formal or informal training or supervision. Its flexibility allows it to be played in many settings, such as nurseries, children and family centres, colleges, community events, and health settings. Players will learn about: • Why sleep is important • Sleep patterns and stages of sleep • Sleep recommendation • Safer sleeping tips • Monitoring sleep • Consequences of sleep deprivation • Techniques to encourage sleep • Sleep problems for children with additional needs For more information on how to use the game, and to order a copy, please visit: and follow @The_Sleep_Game on Twitter.

Governors wanted at Billingshurst Primary School Billingshurst Primary School are seeking people from the community to join their governing body. There are currently two vacancies for co-opted governors. Anyone over 18 can be a school governor – you don’t have to be a parent with a child at the school. Our governing body includes parent governors, who are elected by the parents at the school. School governing bodies exist to help their school deliver the best possible standard of education to all pupils. The most important qualities for being a governor are enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education. You don’t need teaching experience, but it’s useful to bring skills from other areas of your life, for example if you work in finance, law, premises management or human resources these skills can be used to support the school. Governors are responsible for overseeing the

management side of the school: strategy, policy, budgeting and staffing. They ensure that the school runs as effectively as possible, working alongside senior leaders and supporting teachers to provide excellent education to the children. Being a school governor means a commitment to attending governing body meetings (during school hours), which consider issues such as setting the school vision, mitigating financial risk and scrutinising educational outcomes. They are also involved in the school community, acting as critical friends to the head teacher and senior leaders. According to the charity Governors for Schools, one in 10 governor posts are currently vacant with the shortfall as high as one in four in some rural schools. School governors are one of the largest volunteer workforces, and around 300,000 people currently serve as governors of the 25,000

mainstream schools in England. Bik-Kay Talbot, Chair of Governors, said: “I have been a school governor for seven years and I am still learning! Policies change and you have to update your knowledge regularly. School life is never static. At Billingshurst we have a committee structure, all governors sit on two committees, as well as attending a school visit and the full governing meeting once a term. It is rewarding and a privilege to be governor at Billingshurst Primary School.” To find out more about becoming a governor at Billingshurst Primary School, please email govs@ or contact Bik-Kay Talbot, Chair of Governors via the school office on 01403 782789 (during term time).

Voting now open for Most Deserving Grandparent award in West Sussex Highwood Mill are hosting their first Most Deserving award, giving recognition to grandparents in West Sussex who are going the extra mile for their families. Horsham’s most recent retirement development put out the call for people to nominate grandparents, who go above and beyond, for the chance to win afternoon tea for four at Highwood Mill. Rachel Richards, of Highwood Mill, said: “We were delighted with the quality and number of nominations received. It was lovely to read how so many grandparents really make the difference. We have managed to shortlist the entries to three but we only think it is fair if we leave it to the public to decide who should be the winner.” Voting is now open and the public are invited to get in touch with the name of the person they think should be crowned ‘Most Deserving Grandparent’. Finalists: Ruth Tunnell Ruth was nominated by her 4 month old granddaughter Harriet: “The first people to visit me when I was born were my Grandma and Grandad. My mummy got very poorly after she had me and she had to spend lots of weeks in hospital, so my daddy had to look after me all by himself. My Grandma took time off work and gave my daddy so much help and support,

and even decided to work part time, so that she can help look after me when my mummy goes back to work. My grandma deserves to win the award for best ever grandma as she always goes that extra mile.” Brian Budgen Brian was nominated by his daughter Clare: “I am nominating my dad Brian, as he’s the most loving, kind and friendliest man you could ever meet. He has 9 grandchildren and a great grandchild on the way! He goes, and has always gone, above and beyond to help his family. He is so loved and respected by all of his grandchildren - in their words he’s a legend! He deserves to win because he is just amazing.” Susan and Michael Wren Susan and Michael were nominated by their granddaughter Holly: “I would like to nominate both of my grandparents, Susan and Michael. They go above and beyond for all of their children and grandchildren; they are always babysitting or puppy sitting, and giving up their own free time, and never ask for anything in return. They have provided roofs over our heads when needed, and are always the people we turn to when we need advice.” Please send your nominations to with the name of the person you’d like to vote for. Voting closes at midnight on 23 August 2018.

24-27 August, Pippingford Park, East Sussex, TN22 3HW Mercury Prize Winner and NMEs Best solo artist Badly Drawn Boy is back on the road after more than five long years and we are pleased to announce he has chosen Byline festival as part of his much anticipated and eagerly awaited comeback tour. Byline festival is a celebration of truth and justice, which makes Russian feminist group Pussy Riot the perfect band to headline. With their strident feminism and antiTrump and Putin stance which perfectly personifies the activism and unique attitude of the festival THINK, DEBATE, LAUGH, DANCE AND CHANGE THE WORLD! Like Badly Drawn Boy, few people have seen Pussy Riot lately. We are expecting Pussy Riot to be brilliant, badly behaved and riotous. They will join John Cleese, Jo Scalan, Alexei Sayle, June Sarpng, Hugh Grant, Bonnie Greer, Andy Hamilton and Gary Lineker. Byline Festival returns to Pippingford Park with its unmatched mix of intellect and spontaneity. Set in the Halcyon Ashdown Forest, it is only an hour from Central London. Byline offers festival-goers a unique opportunity to recapture the spirit of festivals gone by. Similar to the original Woodstock in its goal to change the attitude of the world. This unique event is for people who don’t want to take Trump, fake news or alternative truth lying down. Byline festival manages to simultaneously provide festival goers with a thought-provoking and enjoyable experience by completely embracing the need for laughter, fun, talented musicians

and just a down right good time at a festival that wants to change the world. Set in a beautiful forest venue, with areas such as The Trumpton Village Fete recreating a postBrexit 1950s village, with its own Mayor, sexy vegetable competitions and Morris Dancing. Late night open-mic sessions will be held on top of our classic red Routemaster bus. Our late night campfire of vanities is the only place we don’t let truth get in the way of a good story. The forest forum will feature stand-up comedy at night and the BBC Virtual Reality tent take festival makers into another dimension, whilst the Backline Stage will play bands all day and an array of entertainment ranging from spoken word to drag cabaret at night. Diverse debate panels made up from speakers such as; A.L. Kennedy, Sir Vince Cable, Jonathan Dimbleby, Kate Mosse, Chris Wylie and performances from our 120 confirmed music acts including classic artists; Badly Drawn Boy, Blow Monkeys, DJ Nihal, The Vapors, Rhoda Dakar, Tom Hingley and The Priscillas as well as up and coming exciting artists Joey Bass and Sample Answer. ‘The Other Bit’ at Byline is for the young and young at heart. It includes Rap Battles, live Urban Art sessions, as well as global DJs such as Maxology and Niclas Jingryd . Daily entertainment includes our exciting opening show starring a circus from New Orleans, the Fly Circus Company and a performance from The Jam Tarts Indie Choir in our Big Top Tent, The media circus. Our three big talk

tents will host leading journalists, politicians, experts and activists from around the world who will be tackling some of today’s biggest issues. With over a hundred workshop sessions offering the chance to learn stand-up comedy, write an e-Book or a protest poem, create a podcast, make protest banners and or simply relax with our yoga and mindfulness classes, there really is something for everyone. Aiming to inspire multiple generations, Byline is family friendly and has special activites for children, such as The House of Fairy Tales, who will be bringing their Media Planet Adventure and News Room to the festival, where children can create daily shows. Outdoor activities will include

rock climbing with experienced instructors and games in the forest for teenagers, run by our Festival Games Master. For those looking for something a little more relaxed, Byline offers a peaceful Woodland Spa with spa treatments led by a team of fully qualified local therapists. Or take a wander through to The Gallery in the Trees for a scenic display of photojournalism hanging from branches in the middle of the forest. London’s legendary media club Frontline Club will recreate its famous bar on-site at Byline Festival and you can enjoy hanging out here as well as our forest bars, an amazing array of independent food stalls as well as festival favourites glitter treatments and luxury showers for all campers.

Sing in the new term with Christ’s Hospital Choral Society!

Box Office 01403 750220


The summer holidays have been wonderful - yet some people are so looking forward to 6 September… What’s going on??? The first Thursday in September sees in the new term for Christ’s Hospital Choral Society, whose singers can’t wait to get the music out for their next concert. This involves work by Purcell, Butterworth and Elgar; their beautiful tunes will echo around St. Mary’s Church in the Causeway on 3 November. While the group of around 80 basses, tenors, altos and sopranos make a pretty good sound as they are, the choir would be delighted to invite more singers to join them. The choir present a wide range of music at their four annual concerts, held at St. Mary’s and at Christ’s Hospital’s

fabulous Chapel and ‘Big School’. Thursday rehearsals, too, are at the school, although normally in a more modest venue. In addition, the choir host a workshop early spring, led by - often renowned – guest conductors. Regular Musical Director is Alex Hodgkinson, who is not only very talented in musical terms but who also manages to crack a joke, and bring about a happy and relaxed atmosphere, while getting excellent results. These are all good reasons to consider joining the choir, and here are some more. You’d make friends while you sing; it’s a very social activity. Singing increases oxygen levels and produces Happy Hormones. All the benefits of eating cake but without the calories! Singing is satisfying; rehearsals as well as those concerts – they’re

very exciting! And finally, over the year the choir support a number of causes, so while you have fun singing your heart out, you are raising money to support charities like St. Catherine’s, Macmillan, Chase, and more. Tempted to join? There are no scary auditions, but it helps if you can sing in tune. Costs are £55 per year, and rehearsals are on Thursdays at Christ’s Hospital, from 7.30 – 9.30. First rehearsals start with drinks to welcome everybody back, this year on 6 September. The choir will then start practising in preparation for November’s concert in the Causeway’s lovely St. Mary’s Church. Why not join the choir for a drink and see how you get on with the singing? You’re likely to love it!

Jones Homes introduces its latest development: Bluebell Meadow, Wisborough Green “The kitchen sealed it for us’

Set between the attractive towns of Petworth and Billingshurst, Wisborough Green is the ideal location for anyone looking to live in a traditional Sussex village. It’s unusual to be able to find new family homes in this area but Jones Homes Southern’s sales team are welcoming home buyers to Bluebell Meadow in the heart of the village. Bluebell Meadow comprises a collection of 25 brand-new, two, three and four-bedroom homes, carefully-designed and traditionally-built. With terraced, semidetached and detached properties, there’s plenty of choice – and each new home comes with a private garden and a garage or parking. The development, on Petworth Road, is bounded by mature trees. Wisborough Green has its own local shop, café, two traditional pubs, a cricket team and a wealth of country walks. Billingshurst, approximately 2.5 miles away has more shopping facilities including

an excellent farm shop, supermarket, several restaurants and a leisure centre with gym and swimming pool. Billingshurst also has a mainline railway station with a regular rail service to London Victoria. Petworth, just six miles away, is home to the magnificent Petworth House set in 700 acres of landscaped deer park, run by the National Trust and open to the public. Petworth also hosts a whole variety of retail outlets selling everything from high quality clothing to antiques. There’s a supermarket, wine merchants, delicatessen, bakery, butcher’s, a monthly farmers’ market and some outstanding cafes and restaurants. To book your visit to Bluebell Meadow, please call the Jones Homes’ sales team on 01322619759. Details of all Jones Homes’ developments are available on the website at www.jones-homes.

“As soon as we saw this development on Fowlers’ website we came straight over to see the new houses and immediately got cracking to put our house on the market,” said Christine Hough, who has recently moved into one of the newly built homes at Abingworth Meadows with her husband, Barry. “It took a while to get a complete chain but once it was all in place, we chose our new home and seven weeks later we moved in. The sales team were brilliant - Fred, Ruth and Lesley were all so helpful, they just kept in touch all the way through. And since moving in, Amy Heaslip has been our contact at Oakford Homes and she’s been excellent as well, so we feel very well looked after.” Barry and Christine chose a house in The Bloomsbury design. The substantial detached house has five bedrooms, including two with large ensuites and wardrobes. Downstairs accommodation features a full width kitchen/dining/family room and a separate utility room with access to an integral double garage. “It was the kitchen which sealed it for us really, as it’s so open plan and we get the morning sun. We also liked the five bedrooms as we’d wanted somewhere bigger than our 16th century home which we had lived in for 20 years.”

Barry works from home and uses the fifth bedroom as a study which overlooks the large Abingworth Meadows pond complete with fountain. Christine is a keen gardener and is already planning the landscaping for the garden which is currently turfed and ready to enjoy this summer. “The family have already all been to stay overnight and although they don’t live far away, there’s plenty of space for everyone. We’ve also had our grandchildren to stay over one weekend without their parents which was great fun.” Abingworth Homes and Oakford Homes are creating a diverse selection of properties at Abingworth Meadows where the current release of homes includes some unusually large two and three bedroom detached houses priced from £575,000, and there is an impressive choice of designs of five bedroom homes which are priced from £705,000. The show home is open daily from 10am to 5pm and for interested homebuyers who have yet to sell their own home, the Oakmove Scheme has now been introduced on selected properties to guide you through the moving process. For more information, contact Fred, Ruth and Lesley in the sales suite on 01798 813071 or email them at thakeham@

YMCA’s dream start continues with two wins from two Tuesday August 7 – Southern Combination Football League – Premier Division Horsham YMCA 2 0 East Preston Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter On a sultry evening at Gorings Mead Horsham YMCA bagged

another three point win – their second in four days, getting their season off to the best possible start. Luke Donaldson opened the scoring in the 14th minute, a lead retained by YM up to the interval. Long awaited rain fell during the second half to hasten the recovery of the pitch from its exception-

was undisputedly YM’s night, Tim Hewlett telling the District Post: “Six points from two games against two of the league’s strongest sides! There were some real plusses in performances, but Tony Garrod was our Man of the Match. Although East Preston had a few chances, YM controlled the game from start to finish and on another day we might

have had more than two goals.” On Saturday YM visit to St Paul’s Stadium, Rotherhithe, south east London for an Extra Preliminary Round FA Cup game against Fisher FC from the Southern Counties East League. Then, next Saturday, August 18th, they take to the road again for a league match against testing opponents Chichester City.

YMCA kick off season with excellent hard fought win Photo by Tim Hewlett

Saturday August 4 – Southern Combination Football League – Premier Division AFC Uckfield Town 2 3 Horsham YMCA Football Martin Read - Sports Reporter In stark contrast to last season – when YM opened their campaign coming a four nil cropper against Pagham – they began this season with an excellent battling win at The Oaks against much-fancied AFC Uckfield Town.

At times last season scoring did not always come easy for YM, but the fluctuating seven goal thriller kept spectators on the edge of their seats as both sides kept pushing for a win. This was a tough examination for YM but they came through with flying colours, yet it was Uckfield who opened the scoring through Bailo Camara in the 23rd minute. Luke Donaldson, then equalised four minutes later to leave the sides on level pegging at half time. The second half was a proper goalfest with the ball going into the

net five times. Soon after the restart new signing Alex Barbary – formerly with Horley – headed home a Tony Garrod cross, only for Uckfield Player Manager Anthony Storey to draw the sides level with a disputed penalty. Both teams kept pressing, and YM quickly re-took the lead when Dan Mobsby converted a free kick, but YM’s advantage was short-lived, Uckfield’s Matt McLean restoring parity at 3-3. With four minutes left on the clock and YM somehow summoning energy in the fierce, sapping heat, Barbary latched onto a rebound from Louis Rogers in the Uckfield goal to give YM all three points. In the closing moments, Tony Garrod hit the bar and the post came to Uckfield’s rescue, YM Manager Peter Buckland praising YM’s commitment and persistence in the face of sustained pressure from lively Uckfield in a captivating yo-yoing contest. On Saturday YM switch to FA Cup action with a visit to St Paul’s Stadium Rotherhith, London SE16 to take on Southern Counties East side Fisher FC in the Extra Preliminary Round.

Roffey storm through to National T20 Quarter Final Photo by Clive Turner

Sunday August 5 – ECB National Vitality CLUB T20 South Area Finals Day Roffey 126-8 (20 overs) - Guildford 103 all out (17.4 overs) Roffey won by 23 runs Alton 108-8 (20 overs) – Roffey 112-1 (13.3 overs) Roffey won by 9 wickets Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter In the round robin Vitality CLUB T20 South Area Finals, staged at Horsham Cricket Club, Roffey pulled off two trademark victories – the first a gritty, determined battle against Surrey Cup holders Guildford, the second a one-sided rampage against Roffey’s Hampshire counterparts - Alton. In the Guildford game on the John Dew ground, Roffey were

in a good position at 65-2, but progress was slow. Several batsmen got off to good starts, before picking out fielders in the deep. Chris Webb top-scored with 23 after being given two lives, before the innings faded from 97-4 to close on a seemingly inadequate 126-8, with insufficient late fours, despite the small boundaries, Coach Simon Fearnley saying: “We’ll need to bowl and field very well to win this one!” But that is just what Roffey did – Guildford, no longer in the Surrey Premiership – although they eliminated table toppers Reigate from this competition – began poorly, losing a wicket in their first over from a far too adventurous stroke. Then, from 10-2 the innings stuttered to 47-5 including a fine running catch from Jibran Khan, but at 101-6 with overs in hand and a partnership developing,

few would have put their house on a Roffey win. Yet, after Jamie Atkins had taken earlier wickets, Luke Barnard, George Fleming, with two scalps in two balls, Theo Rivers and an exciting run out by Rohit Jagota accounted for the last four wickets between them for just three runs to pit Roffey against Alton on Horsham’s main ground after the Hampshire side had seen off Kent challengers Lordswood. Against Alton the Hampshire side batted first, wickets falling steadily until local Horsham resident Ben Mortimer weighed in with 4 sixes and two boundaries in his 19 ball 40, but when he was bowled by Jamie Atkins – who took 3-22, including wickets with slower balls – there was little more to come. Opening the bowling, Mortimer dismissed Usman Khan, but that was as good as it got for Alton, Theo Rivers (70 not out) and Jibran Khan (24 not out) getting Roffey home with six and a half overs to spare. Theo Rivers told the District Post: “We were never going to lose that if we made sure that we didn’t concede early wickets, so we just batted for six overs and took it from there – and after dropping a catch I was determined to win. In the Quarter Finals, on Sunday August 19 (subject to confirmation), Roffey have a trip to Penzance – a round trip of some 570 miles – after the Cornish side made short work of Bristol. This Sunday, Roffey travel to Brentwood in the National Stage of the 40 over ECB Club Championship.

Heath open with a battling draw Saturday August 4 Southern Combination Football League Premier Division Hassocks 1 – 1 Broadbridge Heath Football Andy Crisp & Martin Read - Sports Reporter Heath travelled to The Beacon to play Hassocks in the opening game of the season with three debutants - Ben Hands, Glen Woodburn and Ben Chowney - and two returning players: Lee Carney and Mark Fox. Starting brightly with Devon Fender going close, Heath’s Stuart Chester then got up well to meet Jamie Robinson’s left wing cross without success. The home side’s first attempt at goal came midway through the half when Spencer Slaughter‘s lob came to nothing. Minutes later Hassocks striker Liam Benson found space 20 yards from goal, but his low left foot shot went just wide. Just before half time a free kick from the left was floated to the far post, but it remained 0-0 at the break. Hassocks began the second half strongly, Heath keeper Fox being called into action to

push away a long ball from the left, which Slaughter followed up with a right foot shot that went wide of the post. Then the hosts were almost caught out on the counter-attack when George Cousins whipped a ball in, but somehow the Hassocks keeper Harris made a fantastic acrobatic save to deny the Bears. With 20 minutes remaining Jack Wilkins was brought down 12 yards from goal by Maxwell Benson and got up to score from the resulting penalty. Heath continued to push for an equaliser and were rewarded when Fender - last season’s top scorer - hammered a left foot shot past Harris into the net. With the players tiring in the heat both sides strove for a win, Cousins, Fender and Chester all shooting narrowly wide. But, probably the easiest chance of the game came for Hassocks in the 87th minute when midfielder Alex Spinks was off target with the goal at his mercy. By common consent a draw was a fair result and after a midweek game at Saltdean Heath return home on Saturday to play Shoreham in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round

Strong win puts Roffey 15 points clear at top of the table Saturday August 4 – Sussex Premier League Ifield 121 all out (37 overs) Roffey 122-2 (25.2 overs) Roffey won by 8 wickets – Roffey 30 points – Ifield 1 Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter As was likely, this top v bottom clash was very one-sided - finishing at 4.30pm - Roffey winning without being put under pressure, Coach Simon Fearnley saying: “We did what we set out to do – come away with a crushing win”. Roffey won the toss, inserted struggling Ifield and very soon had them 12-2, Leigh Harrison dismissing both openers. A promising stand then developed, eventually worth 52 runs, between two of Ifield’s most productive batsmen, Dan Smith and Mike Norris, and when they were both out in quick succession (Smith for 36 and Norris for 22), Captain Jack Groves and Sam Dorrington each got into double figures, but it proved to be a false dawn. Ben Manenti and Luke Barnard made short work of the lower order and tail as Ifield collapsed from 111-5 to 121 all out in a flurry of injudicious stroke play. The pair bowled 29 of the 37 overs faced by Ifield, Manenti

taking 2-37, while Barnard took 6-53, telling the District Post: “The wicket was dry and turning - I was bowling a leg stump line and there was a bit of playing across it, wafting up some simple catches.” A leisurely tea was taken at 2-20 and, realistically it was just a case of how long it would take Roffey to knock off the runs, especially as they were without their opening bowlers – Andrew McGorian with a serious knee injury and Jamie Pearce. Uncharacteristically, Theo Rivers was out second ball of the innings, but that was just a temporary hiccup as Manenti plundered 46 off 28 balls before Rohit Jagota and Jibran Khan accelerated to get Roffey home with thirties apiece and the best part of 50 overs to spare, aided by some despondent-looking fielding lapses. Ifield are on 120 points, 20 fewer than Hastings and 79 below Cuckfield. The four remaining round of League games will be on a 50 over win/lose format, next Saturday Roffey visit relegation-threatened Hastings whom the beat easily at home in June, then they entertain Brighton & Hove (third), travel to second-placed Eastbourne before welcoming Horsham (fourth) on September 1st, the last day of the league campaign.

Horsham complete an easy win against Hastings

Premier League round up

Forties from Graig Gallagher and Tom Clark (who recently scored 121 out of 222 as Captain of Sussex U17s v Middlesex at Sussex’s Blackstone ground, having previously got 125 in a one day game v Surrey) took Horsham well past the half way point, Tom Haines and Michael Thornely seeing off the job with twenties. Josh Beeslee took three wickets, but Horsham needed only 25 overs to secure their comprehensive win, cementing their fourth place, just behind Brighton & Hove. Michael Thornely told the District Post: “We’ve had some great wickets to play on at Horsham this season and this was another one. I’m very pleased for Joey Ashmore – he joined us from Bognor this season and has fitted in really well. He is great to have

Saturday August 4 - Sussex Premier League Hastings & St Leonards Priory 141 all out (42.5 overs) Horsham 142-4 (25 overs) Horsham won by six wickets – Horsham 30 points Hastings 3 Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter Horsham beat Hastings by three wickets at Horntye Park in early June, and last Saturday they doubled the margin of victory with an easy win at Cricketfield Road.

Relegation candidate Hastings won the toss, elected to bat and at 54-1 were seemingly well-placed to post a reasonably demanding target. But, while the hitherto productive Joe Billings reached double figures along with his Captain, Tom Gillespie and Ryan Hoadley, Hastings slumped to 80-7, Will Beer and Joe Ashmore effortlessly working their way through the frail batting line up. Jed O’Brien top-scored with 39, but Beer finished with 3-28 and Ashmore 5-34, the 142 run requirement never being likely to pose a serious challenge.

Billingshurst bowled Bexhill out for 75 in June and although last Saturday’s result was closer, Billi were delighted to record back to back league wins, moving them up to third in the table after they had been put in to bat at the Polegrove. They lost early wickets but recovered to 52-2, before stut-

tering to 65-5. Then, 49 from wicket keeper Jake Cross and thirties from Andy Miller and Andy Barr enabled them to declare after passing 200. When Bexhill replied, Miller and Barr soon reduced them to 33-3, but the next six batsmen all started well and at 190-7, both sides were still very much in the game. However, Ben Williams was bowling well again, taking five of the last seven wickets as Bexhill subsided to 194 all out, Williams, changing his style of delivery, finished with 5-71 and Miller 3-44. Billingshurst Captain Tom Haynes – fresh from 118 for Horsham Thursday XI v Weybridge Vandals – told the District Post: “Initially there was variable bounce and, after batting

Away from the Horsham and Roffey games – at the Saffrons, where Eastbourne won the toss, opener James Hockley took full advantage of their excellent batting track to post a personal 240 enabling Eastbourne to recover from 109-4 with a stand of 209, his side declaring on 319-5 shortly after his dismissal. Brighton had 60 overs to get the runs, but while Bryce Hounsome made 55, only two other batsmen, plus extras reached double figures as Brighton slumped to 140 all out, Jacob Smith taking 7-48. At Saint Hill, hosts East Grinstead were all out for 251, Fynn Hudson-Prentice making 92 with good support from Ollie Graham and Steven

around, has been very consistent and has just taken back-toback 5 fors – and he’s chipped in with some useful runs, too.” On Saturday the format of the last four league matches switches onto a 50 over win/lose basis with Horsham travelling to Brighton, with the opportunity to progress further up the table. Meanwhile, Horsham stalwart Paul Baker wishes to make it clear that he made a rapid, complete recovery following the temporary repetitive strain injury that he suffered after being called on to signal Tom Johnson’s 6 sixes in an over against Pagham, and he emphasises that he has long since returned to his customary rude health.

Billingshurst win again and go third Saturday August 4 - Sussex League Division 2 Billingshurst 207-9 declared (51.5 overs) Bexhill 194 all out (45.2 overs) Billingshurst won by 13 runs – Billingshurst 30 points – Bexhill 12 Cricket Martin Read - Sports Reporter

productively in our middle order, Andy Miller bowled impressively with Ben Williams again – and it was good to see Shane West come out of retirement and hit a massive six over the football stand. The pitch was crusty and very dry and I thought 150 might be enough for us to defend, yet it seemed to improve as the game went on. We’ve got four games to go and are 49 points behind second-placed Three Bridges, so we’re not making any rash predictions – we just want to keep winning!” On Saturday Billingshurst return home to welcome sixth-in-the table Bognor Regis, whom they beat comprehensively at the coast in June.

Game – Billy M-Collinson taking 5-65. Cuckfield’s side included prolific Ausssie batsmen Sam Whiteman, but they were shot out for 58, each of the four bowlers employed by East Grinstead enjoying a fruitful day out. Preston Nomads won the toss at Middleton and scored 231-6 from their 58 over allocation, Tim Moses contributing 89. But, despite Mahesh Rawat’s 71 not out, Middleton fell 50 runs short – bowled out for 181 after being 124-4, Harrison Ward taking 4-53. Promoted back into the Premier League last season, Eastbourne are now second, 15 points behind Roffey. Brighton have faded to third, Nomads are fifth, much fancied East Grinstead sixth, Middleton seventh, and, surprisingly, Cuckfield eighth – 58 points clear of penultimate club Hastings, with league newcomers Ifield cut adrift at the bottom of the table with just 120 points.
