Hooded gang with shotgun and machete attack couple It’s the sort of incident that, thankfully, seldom happens in Horsham. A couple, in their late 50s/early 60s suffered a horrible ordeal at their home in Longfield Road on Wednesday (8th December) evening. A gang of what is thought to have been five or six men burst into their home, threatening the couple with a machete and a shotgun. Having forced their way in, they struck the man in the face, threatening the couple as they demanded money. The ordeal lasted just a few minutes before the gang - all wearing hooded tops - made their getaway having stolen a few hundred pounds. Both victims were very shocked by their ordeal and were taken to the East Surrey Hospital for treatment. The man required stitches to a cut to his

cheek. There are limited descriptions of those behind the attack. There may have been five or six men, all wearing hooded tops with hoods up. One may have been of Asian descent and spoke with a London accent. Detective Inspector Pierre Serra from Hor-

sham CID said: “This was a highly unusual attack, given the location and the reported number of offenders. “It is not clear why this particular house or these particular victims were targeted, but we have a number of lines of enquiry and would like to hear from anyone who wit-

nessed anything in the area around the time of the attack or who has information about the men involved.” Anyone with information is asked to call 0845 6070999 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quoting Operation Swinton

An Oceanic Whitetip, described by Jacques Cousteau as "the most dangerous of all sharks" is believed to be behind the fatal attack As many couples do, Ellie Barnes and Gary Light from Southwater headed out to Egypt to catch some winter sun. While the rest of us shovelled snow from our driveways, they would be relaxing on the beach or taking in the stunning marine life when snorkelling in the Red Sea. But it will be a holiday that will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Both witnessed a terrifying fatal attack on a 70-year-old German tourist by what is thought to be an Oceanic Whitetip Shark on the final day of their holiday. Ellie was in the water snorkelling just yards away when the attack happened at the Sharm elSheikh resort. Gary, who swam out to even greater depths in the previous days before he had even been made aware of other serious shark attacks in the area, could only watch and shout from the beach as the attack unfolded. They had arrived for their holiday on Sunday, 28th November, before any of the shark attacks. After three Russian and one Ukrainian tourist were seriously injured by sharks, the beaches were briefly closed by the authorities. But Ellie and Gary knew nothing of these attacks until another British couple told them about the incidents on Wednesday evening. Before long, however, they

were pleased to hear that an official Government notice was sent to the couple’s hotel, declaring that the sharks responsible had been caught and the beaches were now open. Ellie said: “The man on the beach loudspeaker system was even joking that the only shark still around was one of the staff from the water sports centre!”

On Sunday, the day of the fatal attack, everyone was back in the water - swimming, snorkelling, and even riding the banana boats. But soon, with the authorities declaring the beaches safe, Sharm elSheikh was to experience its own ‘Jaws’ moment. Ellie said: “I spent the last of our holiday money on a disposable camera to take out in the water, and forced myself

to go out on the Sunday morning before the coach came to take us to the airport. “We thought we would all go to the beach to make the most of it. “I had been snorkelling for about 20 minutes when I heard this commotion. I looked up and people were

shouting for us to get out of the water. “I looked around and saw this woman in distress. She was calling for help in English. The shark was attacking her and just kept going in for another bite. It would flip over and then go again.” Gary was on the beach, with baby Eden in his arms and keeping an eye on five-

year-old Grace. He said: “There was just hysteria on the beach. “The lifeguards didn’t do anything. People were screaming at them to help but they didn’t know what to do, as they were just kids really. “It lasted quite a while and there was nothing anyone could do. The sea was red. It really was like something out of a horror movie. “It was only after the

shark had gone and the woman was left bobbing in the water that she was brought in, but it was clear that it was too late.” Ellie was in such shock at the attack that she boarded the coach a short time later still wearing her bikini, while the couple forgot their luggage and had to make a dash back to the hotel! Looking back on the incident, Ellie said it was “awe-

Tiger hide seek

Police are appealing for information about a burglary in which a rare family heirloom was stolen. A tiger's hide, which included the head and teeth, was stolen during a break-in at a house in Ashurst, near Steyning. The burglary was reported to police on 1st December, but it is thought that it may

have happened anytime in the few days before. A blue antique vase was also taken from the property. Detective Constable Andy Robinson, of the North Downs burglary team, said: “The stolen tiger's hide is over 100-years-old and a family heirloom. “They are very rare nowadays and would

be very difficult to sell on in this country. “We would like to hear from anyone who thinks they have seen this hide or knows someone who is trying to sell something similar.” Anyone with information is asked to contact Sussex Police on 0845 60 70 999 quoting serial 636 of 1/12.

some” to see, not in that it was enjoyable, but to see the shark’s shocking force at such close quarters. She said: “You can’t describe how it makes you feel. It really could have been me. I thank God that my children have still got a mum this Christmas. “The government said it was safe to go back in the water and now someone is dead because of their negligence.”

Baa-baric ‘keep all dogs on leads when they are near livestock and wild animals’

two hebridean sheep have died after an attack by dogs at chesworth Farm. The sheep had only been there for three weeks, having been introduced after a short time grazing on Mill Meadow at Warnham Nature Reserve. Saturday’s attack left one of the eight sheep dead, and another with a broken leg. Sadly, the second animal had to be put down by a vet. Steve Delahunt, Head Countryside Warden, said: “We are appealing to all dog walkers and pet owners to remember the Countryside Code – in particular, keep all dogs on leads when they are near livestock and wild animals. “Although such incidents are rare, we are now considering stricter controls at all of our countryside sites.” Sussex Police are now dealing with the matter. The sheep are ideal conservation grazers as they love to eat long, tough grasses, bramble and thistles,

leaving grass closely cropped and allowing finer native grasses and wildflowers to flourish. They were introduced to Warnham in a bid to create a more sensitive autumn grass cut than the previous mowing regime, which may help to protect the meadow’s butterflies, and will also save money on mowing contractors. After Warnham, the sheep were moved onto nearby Chesworth Farm to manage the grassland there. The fields at Chesworth Farm have some of the most wildlife-rich grassland in Horsham. The wildlife-rich grassland needs to managed, however, to keep the habitat open and the grasses short and this is achieved through a combination of haycutting and grazing with cows and now, of course, the Hebridean sheep.

Mistakes made with Acorn Plus Just two weeks ago, the council was forced to defend its Acorn Plus recycling scheme, after figures revealed it was the main reason behind a huge budget overspend. Horsham District Council’s mid-term report showed that they were £1.6million off the forecast figure - with roughly half that being an overspend and the other half caused by a lack of revenue, from sources such as car parking. Of the hefty overspend, £790,000 was due to the Acorn Plus scheme.  It led the council chiefs to call a press briefing, where they hailed the success of the scheme, talked up its recycling figures and spoke of its ‘value’. Now, a special report compiled by an outside company has pretty much demonstrated that much of this overspend was unavoidable. Horsham won’t be walking away with any Council of the Year Awards, but the report’s authors - Compass Network Associates - say that only £164,000 (28%) of that figure could have been avoided. “What do you mean ‘only 28%’?” you may justifiably say. The money could have gone a long way, after all.  But the report points out that the money could only have been saved if the redundancy programme had happened more quickly, and from The Resident’s own discussions with the council, it is ap-

parent that the well being of staff was a top priority throughout the process. At the instigation of the Council’s Leader, Councillor Robert Nye, Compass Network Associates (a company which specialises in the design of operational services and which advised on the Acorn Plus project at an early stage) was engaged to provide expert external analysis of the overspend, to allow the council to understand the causes and to ensure that lessons are learned Last night (December 9th), the Cabinet considered a report by the Council’s Chief Executive, Tom Crowley, drawing on the conclusions of the Compass Network Associates’ review.   His report recommends actions to ensure the projected expenditure is contained or reduced; to address organisational weaknesses and to initiate an investigation into the performance of relevant staff.  The author of the Compass Network Associates’ report, Tom Paul (the company’s


aging Director) has concluded that despite the additional costs the decision to introduce the new service still makes sound economic sense.  His report identifies that 72% of the £580,000 overspend to the end of October was unavoidable (including £163,000 that was due to unforeseen circumstances including the extra volumes of recyclable material that have been collected and the increased cost of fuel).  Cllr Robert Nye, Leader of Horsham District Council, said: “The consultant has produced a detailed and thorough analysis that shows the new service still represents very good value for money and that the bulk of the overspend was necessary.  “In addition, most of the overspend was ‘one off’, and will not therefore impact on the cost of the service in future and needs to be viewed against our annual turnover of £30 million.  “However, it is clear that performance could have been better.  “I am determined that lessons will be learned and I am working with the Chief Executive to ensure the mistakes that led to the overspend are not repeated.” Tom Crowley, Chief Executive of Horsham District Council, said: “Although we have delivered an excellent new service for residents, we should have done better in our financial planning and project management.  “I very much regret the mistakes that were made and I am doing all I can to ensure the organisation learns from this experience.” Following consideration by Horsham District Council’s Cabinet on December 9th, the matter will be referred to the full Council on December 15th.

You could make an argument that these people are just doing their job. But it would have been easy for these people to have curled up under the duvet and claimed they were snowed in! Frank Delia, above left, can often be seen performing a number of duties as a park ranger for Horsham District Council. But last Thursday (December 2nd), during the worst of the snow, he was out early, having made his way in from Littlehampton to clear footpaths. It wasn’t a fun couple of days for commuters, facing cancellations and huge delays. But then it wasn’t much fun for the railway worker whose job it was to free the points on the practically invisible tracks, so thousands could get to

work! Messages of thanks are being given to everyone involved in the recent clear up of snow and the support offered to vulnerable residents in the Horsham district. Horsham District Council carried out a number of tasks and was also amongst a number of agencies that diverted normal duties to assist the clearing snow in the district over the week. Twenty-five staff that made it into work volunteered to clear snow in Horsham and elsewhere in the district. And as temperatures plummeted, over 1,700 vulnerable, elderly and sick residents on the Council’s Community Link alarm service were called by council staff to see if they needed help. Emergency prescriptions

were also collected for a number of residents, helping kidney dialysis patients and others. The council also assisted in delivering loose grit to many parishes throughout the district, along with other support to the parishes and also cleared access routes to healthcare facilities and shops across the area. And it wasn’t just the council. A local resident was quickly in touch to offer to clear roads with a JCB telehandler in the Shipley and Ashington areas.

In all severe weather, information about Horsham District Council’s services will be promoted on its website and on Horsham District Council’s Facebook page.

Not tired of attire It’s been around for 450 years, but surely - given half a chance the students at Christ’s Hospital would grab the chance to bring the school uniform up to 21st century standards? Maybe just a few tweaks here and there - sunflower glasses, polka dot skirts and a Lady Gaga inspired sun hat for the girls, and some tight fitting jeans, suit jacket and slippers for the boys. But instead, the old school uniform received an overwhelming vote of support from a pupil poll conducted this term. The long, dark blue, belted coat, worn with coordinating knee breeches, yellow socks and white neck bands – substantially unaltered since the Tudor period – was the subject of a school survey which confirmed that 95% of respondents were proud to wear it and rejected any suggestion of change. Pupils across all seven year groups were sampled for views on whether the uniform was a funda-

positive with their views on the school’s uniform, ceremonies and traditions. Christ’s Hospital’s Head Master John Franklin commented today. “We were delighted to see that there is continuing support for our unique uniform and long-standing traditions. “It is clear that, like past generations of pupils, they regard the uniform with a sense of pride and see it as a positive element for unity and identity.” Former pupils of Christ’s Hospital School, known as ‘Old Blues’ in a reference to the Tudor-style uniform, are equally supportive of the distinctive uniform. Actor Jason Flemyng recalls: “I always loved the school uniform. It meant that we were all the same and part of something important.” The School has been in West Sussex for over a hundred years on a two hundred acre site, south-west of Horsham which currently hosts 800 pupils.

mental part of the school’s history, heritage and tradition or, alternatively, whether it had no relevance in the 21st century and should be replaced with a new design. Only 5% voted for change with 95% preferring to keep it. A similar percentage either ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ that the school should preserve its his-

tory, heritage and traditions and cited the school uniform as the most important of these. Christ’s Hospital’s marching tradition and the school band – which can be seen at the annual Lord Mayor’s Show – were second and third on the scale of importance. In a similar survey, conducted a few years ago, pupils were equally

Creation of new habitat We go to great lengths these days to protect our wildlife. New housing sites have been held up by the presence of certain species, such as Great Crested Newts, new road schemes pulled because of Dormouse discoveries, and developers in some areas have to carry out extensive wildlife searches before building, moving any animals to other areas. It’s one of the few things that most people are happy to accept the costs that are incurred. So most readers will be pleased to hear that the Environment Agency and Sussex Wildlife Trust (SWT) have

started extensive work to restore the stream at the Trust’s Woods Mill nature reserve near Henfield. The work will re-naturalise the area to include a fully functioning river system reconnected with its floodplain. It will create new habitat for wetland bird species such as snipe, kingfisher and little egret as well as for dragonflies and bats who feed on insects attracted to the water and for sea trout. The stream has been moved from its present course to the lowest point in the floodplain by the creation of gentle meanders, riffles (areas of fast flowing water) and oxbow

will overwhelm the surrounding fields creating valuable

wetland grazing marsh - ideal habitat for wildfowl and wetland birds. The line of the old river will still retain some water, providing a static pool for pond insects and small mammals such as the water shrew. In addition, the Environment Agency is constructing a fish pass upstream of the restoration site to allow fish such as the protected sea trout to access new breeding grounds. Hannah Wright speaking for Environment Agency said: “The new fish pass will allow sea trout and other fish species to access areas previously virtually impassable.

“Together with the restoration scheme, it will improve a large stretch of the Woods Mill stream for many species of fauna and flora.” Steve Tillman, Reserves Officer at SWT said: “When the project is completed there will be greater habitat diversity on site enhancing everyone’s enjoyment of a visit to the Woods Mill nature reserve. “Visitors will be able to walk around the new landscape (when it is not flooded) and see the river course develop and change into a new valuable wetland habitat from specially constructed viewing platforms.”

Barber Shop opens in memory of Dad Ruth Dalton and business partner Jackie Chitty are proud to announce the opening of their new barber shop, Harry’s, on Blackbridge lane. Ruth and Jackie, joint owners of JJ’s Hairdressers, have been in business for three years and along with London stylist James Marshall have opened their long awaited gents barber shop catering for the men and boys of Horsham. James, originally from Crawley, found his talents as a barber whilst working for top barber shops in London. Now with 19 years of experience and a passion

to provide a great service, James is keen to impress, “I can’t wait to get stuck in and show the chaps of Horsham you don’t need to spend silly money or travel to London to get a great cut” says James. Harry’s, named after Ruth’s late Father, is situated on Blackbridge Lane Parade, and with plenty of parking it’s definitely worth a visit. So if you’re 2 or 92 and fancy a trim, cut, colour or wash, get down to Harry’s and let James loose on your locks.

Life has returned to relative normality after the county, like most of the country, ground to a halt last week. While it took many of us several hours to clear just a small bit of road or driveway with a shovel last week, it was Mother Nature who rescued us from further holdups with a Friday night downpour. By that time though, snow had affected much of the festive programme, such as the first late night’s shopping in Horsham. But there are still a number of good reasons to visit the town in the coming weeks - not least the chance to win £1000, or perhaps a Phillips television. The Rotary Club of Horsham has teamed up with The Quarter’s traders (Piries place and East Street) to bring you a simple competition with the winner receiving a lot of good cheer ...with a fantastic prize of £1000 in cash and vouchers from various shops and restaurants. All you have to do to win is match eight photographs of shops in The Quarter with a list of possible

Many of the stores around the town centre will be open until 9pm, including free parking in any surrounding Horsham District Council car park from 4pm. The Christmas charity market will go ahead on 12th December at 10am-2pm, while Festive Fun on the Forum (outside Beales) boasts Showtime Amusement from 16th December to January 4th from 11am to 6pm. On the afternoon of Saturday 18th, follow the re-scheduled Horsham Churches Together torch-lit procession through Horsham town centre from the Forum to the Carfax and join in with the carol service around the bandstand.

One event that did go ahead last weekend was Southwater’s annual Christmas Festival, despite the snow and ice. Events and attractions were moved inside Beeson House, and were a great success. Panto stars from Aladdin in Worthing, Mark “Rhino” Smith and Mark Wingett from ‘The Bill’ braved the severe weather conditions to come and open the event with Father Christmas. Nearly 200 children visited Father Christmas in his grotto, all receiving a gift and balloon courtesy of Southwater Parish Council. A day of entertainment and music was rounded off by a community carol concert around the Christmas tree, with a background of Christmas lights, in Lintot Square. The Parish Council, organisers of the Festival, would like to thank all those who had donated time, money and services to make this year a success, despite the weather.

Giant humanoid Buy one, get one gun hid in the woods Weird news from Planet Earth

A car dealership in Florida has launched an unusual promotion a free AK-47 rifle with every truck purchased. Nations Trucks, in Sanford, promises to pay for a Sovietstyle assault rifle for anyone who buys one of its used trucks. The dealership has more than doubled sales since the offer

was announced last week, according to Nick Ginetta, the general sales manager.

Awful mother-in-law

A mother told Russian airport officials her daughter was a suicide bomber in a desperate bid to stop her flying away to get married. Police scrambled to intercept the unsuspecting bride-to-be as her plane was prevented from taking off from Moscow's Domodedovo Airport. But when authorities realised

the tip-off was bogus they traced the anonymous call back to the woman's mother, reports RIA Novosti.

Call it a sixth sense...

A game show contestant became an online sensation by correctly guessing the phrase 'I've got a good feeling about this' with just one letter revealed. Armed with only an 'L' as a clue, Caitlin Burke, a 26-year-old fashion journalist from New Jersey, solved the puzzle in one go on the Wheel of Fortune show. She stunned veteran host Pat

Sajak and won a £4,000 Caribbean holiday by correctly guessing the phrase, reports the Daily Telegraph.

A Polish pop singer is courting controversy by attempting to branch out in politics with help from a sizzling election poster. Katarzyna Szczolek is standing for office in her local authority in Warsaw. But Miss Szczolek, who sings under the stage name Sara May, has been criticised. One election

poster shows her on a beach with the slogan: "Beautiful, independent, and competent."

A French duck farmer has been given a onemonth suspended sentence and fined 500Euros after feeding cannabis to his birds, saying it was an excellent dewormer. The farmer from the village of Gripperie-Saint-Symphorien admitted that he smoked some of the drug himself but said most of it was given to his 150 ducks for medicinal purposes.

"There's no better worming substance for them," the farmer, said, without being able to identify the specialist he said advised him to use it!

French ducks get high

During June 2003, at 10 pm in West Sussex two friends were travelling, by car, from a friend’s house back home along a dark country road. They’d travelled this route many times but on this occasion got the shock of their life. As they came round a tight bend they both saw a movement in the trees ahead. Travelling at only 20 mph both occupants could clearly, although for a brief time, see a bizarre humanoid ‘monster’. A creature, standing over eight-feet in height stood in the woods and the car headlights reflected off what appeared to be a foil-like skin or clothing. The beast stepped upwards through the trees, its features were not discernible in the darkness and it moved away quickly uphill into the undergrowth, consumed by the shadows of night. The witnesses were stunned by this peculiar entity and so the driver, bravely, reversed the car back to the spot. There was no sign of the weird figure and no sound in

the night air. The passenger commented many years later: “I don’t personally believe in extraterrestrials, so for my own part I’ve ruled out anything like that, and being a fairly practically-minded person I’ve come up with various explanations, such as kids mucking about. But the problem of size keeps coming back – I even checked the Internet the following week to see if 8-ft plus people were more common than I’d thought, rationalising that it was some weirdo in a foil suit. “It certainly wasn’t any kind of model, because it was definitely animated. I’m still puzzling over it.” It’s difficult to comprehend some of the bizarre

encounters that people report, and some of these perplexing mysteries are experienced by seemingly level-headed people. From zombies, to hellhounds, from aliens to hairy humanoids, Sussex folklore is peppered with such accounts, leaving us to wonder just what kind of ‘spirits’ are lurking in the woods and darkest corners of this ancient county.

The mystery being seen in 2003 was tall, unlike the aliens from Mars that briefly took over the world in 1996

Roll out the magic carpet Sarah Jane Honeywell as Peter Pan in 2008

Sonia stars in Jack and the Beanstalk in 2006 It only seems like yesterday that TV’s Mr Tumble was firing sweets into the audience with a tennis racket (thanks for the box of Smarties...) as the star of the 2009 Capitol pantomime, Cinderella. Many things have happened since then - we finally realised that our national football team isn’t unlucky so much as not very good, and at the election we couldn’t really decide which of the three main parties we disliked the least - but 2010 does seem to have flown by. So let’s all cheer ourselves up by going to watch the Capitol’s panto! Over recent years, the Horsham panto has been getting better and better, culminating in last year’s record breaking run of Cinderella, sponsored by The Resident and starring Justin Fletcher as Buttons. It’s been gradually becoming more and more popular,

attracting big stars such as Faith Brown in 2004, Sonia and Mark Curry in 2006, Todd Carty in 2007 and Sarah Jane Honeywell in 2008. And this year, Anna Williamson, star of Saturday morning children’s TV show Toonattik, will be the star turn in the Capitol Theatre’s Christmas panto, Aladdin. Anna will be playing the title role in Aladdin, which has again been written by the theatre’s general manager Michael Gattrell, who was responsible for the hugely successful production of Cinderella last time around. Anna said: “I don’t think you can do it if you don’t love it. I’m really passionate about panto. “It really is a difficult skill - it’s an art form. People have tended to scoff at

Anna Williamson takes on the title role in the Capitol’s panto Aladdin, which starts tonight. panto but I think that trend is changing. “I have always thought it was creditable. I first experienced it as a child and got the bug to be on the stage, and I still thank my lucky stars I’m doing it. “It’s one of our long standing traditions in this country and every year it’s nice to see new audiences coming in and enjoying it. I just love it more and more every year - I loved the first one I did and didn’t think I could top that but they always get better.” Join Aladdin, Wishee Washee, Widow Twankey

and the beautiful Princess on the magic carpet ride of a lifetime. Hiss at evil Abanazar as he heads our hero into the cave of treasures, and cheer as the Genie of the Lamp appears to grant your every wish! Aladdin will be a glittering pantomime, with loads of comedy, song, dance, audience participation, spectacular sets and colourful costumes, the perfect traditional pantomime for all the family. What more could you wish for? Rub the lamp, make a wish and take flight on a thrilling magic carpet ride to The Capitol this Christmas.

Aladdin runs for 40 performances from Friday, 10th December 2010 until Monday, 3rd January 2011. Tickets are available by calling the box office on 01403 750220 or visiting our website

Time to put on the glitz Last week we watched the town turn into a scene from a Christmas card, with a blanket of snow enveloping the streets and creating a glisten and sparkle which lit up the days! Yet by Saturday, the magic had disappeared and the streets were turned into grey slush and we all felt the cold. We grew weary of the dark days and enforced padding we had to wear to keep warm. So now is the time to strip off the layers and start to put the dazzle back into our lives! The snow garb can hide a multitude of sins but it is good not to feel like the Pirelli man every time you have to venture out! I have to confess to possibly being the only woman to walk home through 20 inches of snow in blue velvet high heels on Wednesday night! The snow boots did not do my new dress justice so it had to be done! After all the snow, I made a bid to reclaim the glamour by making a beeline for the Beales Beauty Gala on Monday 6th December and I was not disappointed! Their promise of Mistletoe Lips could not be resisted and the array of beauty products were just what is needed after

Looking back at 2010 - how did you do? At this time of year many of my clients are completing their year end review, looking back at what they’ve achieved throughout this year. Whether it’s personal or professional goals, they’ve set out to make a change that will have a big impact on their life, and I really enjoy seeing the progress they have made. Here are some of the questions they are answering when reviewing their progress this year. How would you answer these questions, looking back at 2010? What have I accomplished? Every new experience changes us in some way, what

have you learnt this year, how have you moved forward? What would I have done differently? Not everything we do works out, but we can look back and learn from our mistakes, so we don’t make them again.

What were my biggest challenges, and how well did I handle them? Being able to deal with difficult situations builds our confidence and self-esteem. If we aren’t trying new things, how can we realise our potential? What was my proudest moment?

Was it something you achieved, or the achievement of someone close to you? Think back to how good you felt, and how much this meant to you. For what am I particularly grateful? Recognising what is working well in our lives is really important, and remembering that sometimes the smallest things bring us the most joy. Looking ahead to 2011 - What would you like to achieve in 2011? What changes could you make to positively influence your life? What do you LOVE doing, and like to do lots of in 2011?

If you’d like 2011 to be the year that you really make things happen, perhaps working with a coach can help you achieve that challenging goal? Perhaps you feel like you don’t have many choices, or too many obstacles seem to get in the way. Whether you book a oneoff Life Review session, or a series of sessions to tackle something more challenging, working with a coach helps you get there faster. For more information, or to book a free introductory session, contact me by emailing Cathryn@ or call me on 01403-793790.

“Countdown to Christmas” article by Suzanne Brady, this week and it is full of useful tips to make your Christmas stress free and relaxing. If you still have gifts to buy, Beales offer a wonderful gift wrapping service in their beauty department and they can create bespoke gift coffrets based around a favourite fragrance which include complimentary additional items. Read more about this over the page. If you are thinking of the best day to hold your Christmas party, consult our Feng Shui expert, Janine Lowe, who gives all of us an auspicious day this week so be sure to consult the Chinese horoscope. I am a dog, apparently, but I have lots of friends who are rabbits so I am not sure whether to offer carrot with dips? We are all hoping that we will have a white Christmas, but even without the snow, we can all dazzle and sparkle this year! Enjoy!

Find your auspicious day Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art which explores the use of the five elements; fire, earth, water, wood and metal in a space. In the Chinese calendar December is the Month of The Rat. The Rat indicates lots of chatter, music and the electronic communication such as TV and computers. Below are some auspicious dates to use for this month. Refer back to the chart for which Chinese animal governs you which we publicised last week. When using the days and hours below use them as a guide for the optimum times to book holidays, meetings or parties. Remember INTENTION IS EVERYTHING...

Countdown to Christmas Two weeks to go! Yes just 14 days left before the big day but don’t worry, there’s still enough time to get everything done. Gift shopping must be the top priority for most of us this week as we hurry to get as much as possible done before the kids break up and the shops run out of bargains. If you have to take the kids with you, try to co-ordinate it with some fun – Sunday shopping in Horsham is great because not only is there free parking (if you can find a space) but also Swan Walk has Dennis the Menace on walkabout this Sunday and Angelina Ballerina next week. Late night shopping is Thursdays until 9pm. OVER THE NEXT TWO WEEKS YOU SHOULD… Write and send your Christmas cards - today is the last day for USA, Canada and Eastern Europe with Monday for Western Europe. Last UK dates are Parcels on Weds 15th, 2nd Class on Sat 18th, 1st Class on Tues 21st and Special Delivery on Thurs 23rd December. Plan your menus and write a food shopping list. Start buying non-perishables now.

Check you’ve got enough crockery, cutlery and wine glasses. Don’t forget to collect your turkey order or defrost it in plenty of time if you bought frozen. And if you’re not doing the cooking, buy a thank you gift for your host/ ess (flowers/wine always appreciated). Stock up on BATTERIES, light bulbs, toilet roll and sticky tape! (Booze and food is a given). Buy a TV guide and plan family viewing and recordings. Free up space on your Skybox/PVR and be ruthless - anything over 3 months old unviewed is unlikely ever to be watched. Prepare your car for long journeys - book in that service, buy new tyres or at very least check oil & tyre pressure before you set off. Buy some breakdown cover. Keep a blanket in the boot to keep you warm if you get stuck in the snow or traffic. Take a bag of essentials including snacks, toys, music, spare kids’ clothes, wet wipes and a plastic bag with no holes in the bottom for the inevitable over-excited ‘I feel sick’ moments! Decorate the house & office;

first job dig out those tree lights and see if they are still working! Try to remember where you saw that holly bush earlier in the year so you can grab a little snippet. Hang front door wreaths outside and mistletoe inside. Schools break up a whole week before Xmas so plan in some activities to keep the kids from getting too bored or too excited. Maybe set up a few play-dates, book the cinema, go to the Panto or even the circus. Most schools close early on the last day of term so make sure you know what time they break up and remember to give their teachers a little gift. Plan sleeping arrangements and borrow or buy extra bedding. Check your airbed still holds air and your camp bed isn’t mouldy. Wash or dry clean sleeping bags. And so to Christmas Eve… if you don’t have a chimney, leave a Santa key or keep the catflap unlocked so the big man can get in. Don’t forget to leave a little snack for Santa and the Reindeer and be inventive - sherry and mince pies are always welcome but I hear he’s also partial to a Baileys and chocolate every

few houses. TOP TIP – Write a time plan for Christmas Day and delegate tasks evenly in advance (laying table, loading dishwasher, etc)… after all Christmas is about sharing!

Identity Hair and Beauty soars to new heights If you were out and about braving the icy weather on Saturday morning you may have seen a random collection of orange balloons floating above Horsham. But before you worry it wasn’t a balloon vendor with numb fingers or a small child lost in aid of Sussex Air Ambulance. The whole event is the brain child of Belinda Grover whose own nephew was saved by the air ambulance in a motor sport accident, “if it

wasn’t for the speed and the expertise of the air ambulance I don’t know what would have happened” says Belinda “they saved his life”. The week had been spent selling helium filled balloons for £1, with attached tags displaying a number and the Salon’s telephone number. The rules are the first balloon to reach the furthest distance with a responding phone call wins either a £50 voucher of the winners choice or a pair of GHDs.

The winner of last years balloon race travelled as far as the Isle of Wight. As well as the balloon race the girls had rearranged the Salon to fit in various stalls of goodies to help with the campaign and despite the poor weather they still raised an acceptable amount of money. “On behalf of all the team at Identity we would like to thank all of our customers who donated to this special cause with a special thanks to Wendy and Gwen for there lovely cakes and Pam for her scrumptious biscuits” says Belinda “ however we feel we can do better and are sure that if it wasn’t for the weather we would have raised more for the air ambulance” she continues “therefore we will keep the stalls open and more balloons on the ready for people come to in off the street and donate some money to this amazing cause”. The Sussex Air Ambulance Appeal was launched in June 2005 by local actress Penelope Keith CBE. The appeal

target was set at a quarter of a million pounds. The emergency helicopter was launched by a host of celebrities including Penelope Keith and Bernard Cribbins on June 8th 2007. Responding swiftly to 999 calls, air ambulances are able to deliver a medical crew to the scene of an accident or medical emergency and to transport patients to the nearest major hospital or specialist unit, in a fraction of the time taken by a land ambulance. Sussex has a complete HEMS Service (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service), and employs the highest possible clinical standards in pre hospital care.

Million pound houses double The age of austerity is upon us, says David Cameron, so just why has the number of million pound property sales more than doubled over the past year? New research from the Halifax has revealed that home buyers with super-sized budgets are alive and well. The former building society has found that there were 2,992 million pound property sales in Britain in the first six months of this year, a whopping 118% more than in the same period last year. This figure is especially high when compared to a 27% increase in total house sales over the same period. Whilst million pound home sales do represent a very small proportion of the total market in Britain, the share of all sales has risen from 0.5% in the first half of 2009 to 0.9% in the first six months of 2010. There are now an estimated 170,000 homes in Britain worth at least £1 million. Unsurprisingly, London accounts for the highest proportion of million pound sales, at 4.5%. 89% of all million pound sales in the first six months of this year were in London and the South East; slightly higher than the 86% recorded in the first half of 2007.

Chapel’s history is ‘strictly’ Baptists Peter Hughes - country property in Petworth is selling Ebenezer Chapel comprising a former chapel newly converted into a unique residential property. The property is being offered at a guide price of £295,000. The chapel dates from 1887 and was used by the ‘Strict’ Baptists as a place of worship until 2006, by which time the congregation had dwindled to just one. The conversion of this unusual property has created a distinctive home, with much charm and character, located right in the very heart of the ancient market town of Petworth. One of the principal features is the original meeting room with its wonderful high vaulted ceiling. There is also a modern fitted kitchen, a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom, a study/inner lobby, and a separate cloakroom. The south facing paved courtyard garden provides a very pleasant and private outside space. A very useful external store is ideal for garden furniture/logs. Ebenezer Chapel is ideally located within easy walking distance of all the excellent shopping facilities on offer in the town.

Leading historic race organiser, Motor Racing Legends, has launched an all-new race series for Groups 1 and 2, and Group A Touring Cars, such as raced in the British and European Touring Car Championships between 1977 and 1985. The new series will be called the JD Classics Challenge, thanks to the help and support of the premier classic car dealership, JD Classics.

Toyota Landcruiser

Bag a bargain thanks to euro V regulations Prices of some new cars are going to be discounted heavily between now and the end of the year, because come January 1st 2011, it will be increasingly difficult for car dealers to register any new car that doesn¹t comply with euro V emissions regulations. The ensuing problem for dealers is that much stock that isn¹t Euro-V will either have to be sold or pre-registered before January 1st. Manufacturers have been working flat out to update their models with Euro-V engines all year, but certain cars have only very recently been updated, and others are still only ‘Euro-IV’. “Consumers thinking of buying a car in the New Year could save themselves thousands if they bring their purchase forward before the end of the year. They will be able to take advantage of this unique situation and also benefit from the

lower rate of VAT before it rises to 20% in January”, commented Chas Hallett, Autocar editor. Our researchers identified the Honda Civic 2.2 i-CDTi as a potential Euro-IV target. The Civic diesel never received Honda’s Euro-V-compliant i-DTEC diesel engine that now powers the Accord and CRV, and will therefore be withdrawn from sale in the EU next month. Any remaining stock of the car must be sold or pre-registered before December 31st. “The closer we get to the end

of the year, the more likely dealers are to offer big discounts. Consumers should do their research and haggle hard. It’s a buyers market,” said Chas Hal-

big 4x4 was only upgraded to Euro-V a few weeks ago, so there’s likely to be plenty of Euro-IV stock still to sell. Consumers should exercise

lett. Great deals may be available on a Toyota Landcruiser too. The

care in identifying Euro-IV cars to haggle for, several have been given a 12-month stay of execution due to 'exceptional circumstances'. These include any 2.2-litre petrol, 3.2-litre petrol or 2.4-litre diesel version of Alfa Romeo¹s Brera or Spider, for example, and any Euro-IV models from Mitsubishi or Subaru that have been in stock in the UK since before September 2010.

RoadSafe reminds UK motorists that winter tyres improve grip in wet, cold, icy and snowy conditions. Winter tyres can be used all year round, but it is in cooler, wetter conditions that they show their real benefit. Tests by the British Tyre Manufacturers Association found that a car braking at 60mph on a wet road at five degrees Celsius stopped five metres shorter when fitted with winter tyres.

‘The cLoser we geT, The more LikeLy deALers Are To offer Big discounTs’ A 1958 250GT Ferrari was expected to fetch over one million pounds when it went under the hammer last week went on show at Duke's Hotel in London last week. The "Ultimate" Christmas present was up for auction by COYS at their "True Greats" auction but it actually failed to sell while, John James Audubon’s early- 19th-century illustrated “Birds of America” sold in London for £7.3million.

New figures published today by the BBC* reveal that more than 600,000 cars on Britain’s roads have been clocked so they show lower mileages. This figure increases to 716,291 when vans and motorbikes are included, highlighting the need for consumers to protect themselves from unscrupulous sellers, says HPI.

Polina scoops the top spot

Horsham make a point in a scrappy encounter A clean sheet, a point away from home and a jump of two places in the Ryman Premier Division table. Those, in a nutshell, were the few positives Horsham could take from a frustrating night on the Kent coast after this uninspiring bottom-of-the-table clash ended goalless for the second time this season. With both teams having seen recent matches postponed due to the wintry conditions, it was with some initial relief that the Folkestone ground staff had performed wonders in getting the Cheriton Road pitch playable but neither side were able to provide the performance to reward such sterling efforts and goal scoring opportunities were in scarce supply. Folkestone kicked the game off on a chilly evening where only 7 Horsham supporters stood behind the opposition goal but they were encouraged when Gary Charman, fit again after being laid low with the flu' virus, had the Hornets' first attempt on goal after just 3 minutes. Sadly for them, the shot was weak and straight at home 'keeper Jack Delo yet would prove to be the visitors' most meaningful effort on goal in the entire match. Horsham's September FA Cup tie at the Buzzlines Stadium had seen former striker Simon Austin

sition rather than squaring to Davies under pressure. In a very poor game, it would appear that Horsham struggle to perform to the same level as they do against the ‘better’ sides.

play a leading role in the hosts' victory and it looked as if the Hornets would fall foul of yet another of their former players this time around when Allan Tait had the ball in the net early on, only to see his goal chalked off for offside. The first half was dominated by the whistle of referee Darren Blunden but Tait had the opportunity to show was he is capable of with a long range effort which went wide and, in Folkestone’s other chance of the half, Robbie Kember had a free-kick effort from outside the box tipped over the crossbar by Mark Zawadski and the resulting corner was cleared with ease. The second half carried on

very much as first ended scrappy, to say the least. John Maggs tried changing things around early in the half by bringing on Steve Davies, Ryan Woodford and Tony Nwachukwu in quick succession and pushing Ben Andrews up front. And it seemed to do the trick with young Tony breaking through the left side of the Invicta defence but, once again, the Hornets were lacking in the final third and could not get a shot away. Michael Hector had a slight chance, shooting from a tight angle where the crossed ball seemed a better option and, similarly, Nwachukwu probably should have shot in a similar po-

Horsham Juventus made it through to the 3rd round of the Sussex Sunday Challenge Trophy with a 6-1 win over Lewes based Cinque Port Supernova. Horsham Juventus started the game very brightly and went ahead when good work on the right from last season's Players Player of the Year Aaron Mackay found an unmarked Ali Harvey who poked into an empty net. Juve doubled their lead when Harvey was through on goal only for Josh Archer to nick the ball from his toe and score with a nice placed finish. Cinque pulled one back, before Archer went on a mazy run, beating three defenders and smashing the ball past the outstretched keeper to put Juve 3-1 up. Aaron got reward for his hard work when he was free at the back post to tap in a Paul White cross. Josh Archer completed his hattrick when put through one-onone by skipper Tommy Di Martino and a late own goal made it 6-1.

Polina Zotova claimed the top spot in this year’s Academy Championship held recently. Polina, age 13, had showed potential all year in Cottesmore’s Junior Academy events but had not proved it in competition until the final event of the year. The championship was held over nine holes on the Phoenix course. Polina made her 36th shot on the ninth green; a complete hole ahead of her nearest competitor Kane Minter-Young. It was Kane’s second runner-up spot of the season but his major success was as winner in the Under 11’s tournament. Kane also won ‘Pupil of the Year Award’ for his conduct both on and off the golf course. The under 9’s event was won by Polina’s brother Egor – both follow in their mother’s footsteps. Mother Daria scooped a variety of cups in the Ladies section as well as winning external competitions. Newcomer to the Academy, Jack Williams, won the under 7’s event. The young players at the academy are coached by Cottesmore professional, Calum Callan. Throughout the year the young players have a mix of group and individual coaching plus on-course practice where they also learn golf etiquette and rules. The Academy Championship was the last tournament of the season.
