Horsham’s footballers have a chance to make history

Horsham’s footballers are on the verge of one of the biggest days in the club’s 130-year history. The final of the Sussex Senior Cup will be played at the American Express Community Stadium, the spectacular new home of Brighton and Hove Albion, it was revealed this week. Horsham must win two more matches to get there, including a quarter-final at lower-ranked Burgess Hill Town on February 22. But Frank King and Don Duffield, who both watched the Hornets play in 1945, say it will be one of the top three or four

occasions in their 66 years as supporters if the part-time players do reach the final. The match, on July 16, will be the first ever played at the Amex in Falmer – even before Albion’s first team appear at the near-£100 million all-seater arena. Attendance at the final will be restricted to 10,000 supporters, 12,500 fewer than the capacity when the Seagulls play their first league match there in August.

links and facilities before bigger crowds are allowed in. And that is great news for non-League clubs in Sussex, including Horsham, who still dream of making history by taking part in such a high-profile event. Mr King, who will be 80 in June, told The Resident: “It will be the best 80th birthday present they could give me if we can get to the final. I’m thrilled to bits with the idea and I hope there’s a big crowd, whoever gets through. “I saw my first Horsham match at Queen Street in 1945, just after the end of World War II. “The biggest games were the FA Cup matches at Notts County in 1947, when the great Tommy Lawton played against us, and at home to Swansea a few years ago.

Hornets target first game at new £100m stadium Continued from Page 1 “Playing the first match in the new stadium would be right up there with those – one of my top three games. “It’s going to be a fantastic stadium, one of the best in the south of England, and it puts an extra edge on our quarter-final at Burgess Hill. “As far as I’m concerned, the Sussex Senior Cup is the most prestigious cup in Sussex, our FA Cup if you like. “My only disappointment would be playing the final in July, when our squad may have changed, rather than early May.” Peter Bentley, chairman of the Sussex County Football Association, said: “We are delighted to be invited to the Amex to play the final on what will be

an historic occasion. “This demonstrates the co-operation that exists between us and the senior clubs in the county for the benefit of football and its fans. “It will provide a great occasion for the players and fans of the clubs who reach the final, and give those teams the opportunity to play in front of such a large crowd in such a wonderful stadium.” Martin Perry, chief executive of Brighton and Hove Albion, said: “I am delighted the Sussex County FA and its member clubs have seen the enormous benefit of the final being the first fixture at the Amex. “For the teams still in the competition it is sure to provide an extra incentive to reach the final.”

Have your say as buses face end of the road County council wants to hear your views on which bus services to axe in the next 3 years Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

Concerned residents have been told they can fight to save bus services threatened with the axe. West Sussex County Council is today (Friday) expected to approve plans to slash bus subsidies by £2 million, or 43 per cent, over the next three years as part of overall cuts

totalling £79 million. Well-placed sources told The Resident there was little doubt councillors would vote to reduce subsidies from £4.7 million to £2.7 million, phased over three years. But Cllr Lionel Barnard, deputy leader of the county council, said no decisions would be taken today about exactly which subsidies and services would be cut. The Conservative councillor for Henfield has set up a task force of five

councillors – three Tories and two Liberal Democrats – to consider the issue in more detail. And he told The Resident he would be happy to hear from individuals and groups anxious to make sure their bus services are not hit. Cllr Barnard said: “We are going to look at it as sympathetically as possible and talk to the bus companies. “We will be looking at routes that are the least used, such as Sunday night services and things of that

nature, rather than peak times at first. “We won’t slash services on day one, April 1. It will be a gradual process and we want to hear what people think.” Cllr Morwen Millson, county councillor for Horsham Riverside, said: “Liberal Democrats are extremely concerned about the proposed cuts to bus subsidies. “These have only ever been provided for services that are not profitable, so they are mainly rural services and

These swingeing cuts ‘will result in greater traffic congestion and more road crashes ’

those that operate early in the morning, in the evenings or on Sundays. “They are most likely to be used by young people to get to and from school, college or work, by disabled people and those without access to a car, so they are very important to the well-being of many communities. “Without them, people with access to cars will use them more. Older drivers will hang on to their licences, even when they have doubts about their own driving capacity. Younger people will lose their independence and there will be even greater pressure on parents to buy a car. ”Lib Dems fear these swingeing cuts will result in greater traffic congestion, particularly in residential areas around schools. “They will lead to more road crashes and they will reduce the ability of older and disabled people to travel, especially in rural areas. “The county council is proposing cuts of £500,000 in the next financial year, £1 million the following year and £500,000 in the third year. “It says it will look at sustainable transport alternatives. Lib Dems support such options, but we believe

these cuts are too severe and are being implemented too quickly.” Cllr Derek Deedman (Lib Dem, Bramber Castle) said subsidies had contributed to the doubling of bus use in West Sussex in the last decade, reducing congestion and helping tackle climate change. But the Steyning resident warned: “The Conservatives’ proposal would decimate bus services in rural areas, evening and Sunday services, and school services for pupils living within three miles of schools. “Locally the services which could be lost are the 2A Sunday service between Steyning and Shoreham and the 17 Sunday service between Horsham and Brighton via Henfield. “Also at risk would be the 108 and 109 services between Worthing and Horsham via Steyning, and the Henfield to Burgess Hill section of the 100 service.” Cllr Warwick Hellawell (Lib Dem, Roffey) said bus subsidies were not sustainable in their present form. But he added: “Until alternatives are in place I think subsidies are unfortunately essential to ensure that those who really need these services have access to them.” Cllr Frank Wilkinson (Con, Storrington) told The Resident: “The cut to our bus subsidy budget is of great concern to every councillor, and in particular to colleagues like myself who represent rural areas. “I am well aware of the importance of a reliable service. Unfortunately the last government left a massive debit balance and we have been given the job of bringing it back into credit. “I attended a seminar last week when all of the issues of bus subsidies were discussed. “The county council will do everything possible to spread any cuts fairly and sensibly. A task force has been set up to do just that and I have every confidence in their ability to do so. “Naturally I will be giving them my thoughts for my electoral division.”

News in Brief Council tax freeze Horsham District Council is set to freeze its share of the council tax. The district’s Cabinet says the council should charge the same level of tax from April, but the proposal will be considered by the full council on Wednesday next week, February 16. The district would charge £135.54 for band D council tax, with a special charge of £23.72. District councillor Gordon Lindsay, Cabinet member for finance and assets, said: “The council has had to deal with twin challenges – producing a budget which minimises the impact on services while coping with a significant reduction in government grants. “We have been able to maintain at the present level discretionary rate relief and other grants for charities, sports clubs and other similar organisations. “The Cabinet has also recommended a balanced budget which does not draw on reserves to cover day-to-day expenditure. “Significant challenges still remain but the council is determined to maintain its strategy of achieving a balanced budget while minimising the impact on the delivery of key services.”

Shall I stay or shall I go? This is the question many young people are asking in relation to a university education after the recent vote to increase tuition fees. Fees will treble to a maximum of £9,000 a year and with graduate unemployment running at 20 per cent many college students are questioning the wisdom of following the traditional path to university. The massive growth in university education over the last 10 years has seen many young people undertake a wide range of courses, from medicine to events management. But with no guarantee of a job and a debt that can grow to more than £46,000 over three years, university is no longer the automatic choice for many young people. They are experiencing a period of transition. The subject of employability is a key one and this may change students’ options, with more turning their backs on pure academia in favour of courses with more employment options, such as law or accountancy. The song “Should I stay or should I go?”, recorded by the Clash in the early 1980s, seems more appropriate today than when it was written. Collyer’s student Laurence Baker, a former head boy at Tanbridge House School, told The Resident: “The abyss of endless uncertainty that students are faced with is about to be stretched even further.

“The cost of university fees has trebled and students are left in the dark with the daunting prospect of leaving further education tens of thousands of pounds in debt. “It is a strange prospect, having no clue where you will be living in 10 years. Most students know what they want to do in the future, but now the question on their minds is ‘Can I afford to get there?’ “Prior to the change it was a given, for many, that after finishing college you attend university and then you get a good job. Now more people are starting to look at other possibilities. “I had always tried to keep my options open for the future, but I’m starting to more seriously consider other possibilities like going into employment after college. “I was one of the fortunate ones who received a grant for maintenance as well as fees, so I can sympathise wholeheartedly with these young people who represent our future.”

Collyer’s students have their say: “Of course the cuts are going to mean big changes, as well as large increases in tuition fees. “It is going to mean loss of quality, bigger classes and fewer staff at universities and it will change the way people think about university. “Whether it will still be regarded as a natural step forward is a question on everyone’s mind. “In the past it seems for a certain type of academic student, university has been the traditional and wellrespected step forward. “But making this option less readily available poses difficulty and raises the question of what qualifications you need to get a good job.” Jonathan Packham

“I would love to study History at university but I am aware that this will not lead me into an automatic career and arts graduates have the highest unemployment at the moment so am reconsidering and thinking I may change to Law. I feel that my interests have been affected but I have to look to the future.” Lily Bray (above)

News

“The university fees increase means there is a possibility I won’t go to university, so I won’t be able to work in my chosen field despite having good grades as my family and I cannot afford it.” Michelle Walder “As if the UCAS process wasn’t stressful enough! The added pressure and stress surrounding the cuts and the rise in fees are making it an ordeal rather than a joy.” Alex Bohan

“The rise in tuition fees has made me consider whether I would rather spend a lot of money for uni when I could buy a house in the South of France.” Felix Prater “I am still going to university and I guess I’ll just have more debt when I get out.” Adam Hockley

“I am lucky enough to have financial backing and to have escaped the hike as I go this year, but for those in financial difficulty it will be an unnecessary lifelong worry. “Universities have turned themselves into more of businesses and they are giving more privileges to foreign students as they pay higher fees.

News in Brief Rocket science? It is for cosmic girl Jennifer Stop the Traffik Collyer’s student Jennifer Simmonds has been chosen for space camp at Huntsville, Alabama. After a rigorous selection process, Jennifer was one of only eight UK students picked for the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy at the US Space and Rocket Centre. Kat Balch, from the centre, told her: “Your record of academic excellence and community service has qualified you to join a prestigious group of students from around the world.” Jennifer will take part in workshops to test her knowledge about issues in science, technology and engineering, including teams working to build and launch a rocket. The former Millais School pupil will launch into “virtual reality space” through simulators, endure a G-force simulator and enjoy talks from astronauts next month.

She said: “Space is pretty unforgiving so I’m expecting a tough cerebral test. I’ve been working really hard to make sure I’m at the top of my game. “Studying at a brilliant college has helped hugely. Everyone has been really supportive and my teachers and friends are right behind me. “I’m thrilled to have this brilliant opportunity to enjoy a great experience and develop my leadership skills. “I want to apply what I learn to a career in a global business connected with space. I’m planning to go to university and I’m getting advice from tutors about the best way forward.” Margarita Mortimer, her tutor at Collyer’s, said: “Jennifer works extremely hard and is a popular member of the Collyer’s community. “This is a brilliant opportunity and we all wish her the very best of luck.”

Disease of the renal tract and subsequent renal failure is one of the fastest-growing medical problems, increasing by eight per cent per year. Those who find themselves on dialysis are condemned to a miserable existence, some waiting years for a transplant while others die.

Players equal entry income, raffle income and auction income. “Two years ago we put out 81 golfers; last year only about 45.” Sponsors “For par 3 and long drive prizes, one for men and one for ladies. Sponsors and donations mean we make a greater surplus from the day.” Auction and raffle prizes “Rounds of golf and bottles of wine, spirits or champagne always go well, but I rule out nothing as all donations are very gratefully received.”

Our normal annual income is about £55,000.”

Mr Rae, of Beaver Close, Horsham, said: “Horsham Rotary have generously advised they will sponsor one of the par 3s to the tune of £100. “Ifield and Rookwood golf clubs have already donated rounds of golf, and the Holbrook Club has just advised they will donate a bottle of malt whisky to the raffle.” Mr Rae, who is “loosely involved” with Mannings Heath Golf Club, added: “Neil Darnell looks after my atrocious swing – when I can swing. “From time to time I help him out when he needs bodies to assist with golf societies or corporate days.”

‘Enough is enough’ say protesters News in Brief at big European event in Steyning Avoiding violence

Those who work with young people are being urged to take part in a training course. The session, from 9am to 11am on Saturday, March 12, will cover the importance of personal safety and ways to avoid or defuse violent and aggressive situations. A spokesman for Horsham District Council said: “Those attending will be equipped with the basic information and confidence to engage young people in discussions around these issues.” The free course is open to anyone who works with, or volunteers with, people aged between 10 and 19. It is part of an initiative between the district council, Horsham Churches Together, West Sussex Council for Voluntary Youth Services and West Sussex Youth Service. Call 01403 251385 or email community.development@horsham.gov. uk for more information.

Singular success Members of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) protested outside a high-level European Union conference in Steyning.

But Horsham UKIP members Stuart Aldridge, Brian Bufton, David

Duke and Graham Harper joined one of the conference speakers, South East MEP Marta Andreasen, to wave placards outside. Mr Harper said drivers put their thumbs up and hooted their car horns in support of the demonstrators. He said: “The first item on the agenda? ‘How large should the EU budget be in an age of austerity?’ “It seems the predatory and

It is set not only to increase but to introduce an additional tax burden. “Not content with obtaining bailout funds of several billion pounds from the UK, in addition to the current VAT funding, there are new innovative taxation ideas in the pipeline. “We are already facing up to UK government cutbacks on an

The Group, the Sussex organisation for single people, has celebrated its first year in Horsham. Co-founder Tricia Bentley said: “Horsham is our fourth venue and we are delighted to be celebrating a year there. We are so pleased with the support we have had.”

Arson suspected A blaze in woodland on Wednesday is believed to have been started deliberately. Billingshurst firefighters were called when a tree was set alight behind Holders Close shortly before 5pm.

School energy savers New energy meters are being installed at all maintained schools in West Sussex to help reduce energy consumption and save money. They use a new type of technology which automatically collects data about gas, electricity, oil or LPG. The automated meter reading (AMR) programme, which was unanimously supported by head teachers and governors at the county’s schools forum, will be rolled out from the end of March. Schools will be able to go online to see where their energy goes, how they can manage it and reduce their carbon footprint. Cllr Peter Griffiths, county council Cabinet member for education and schools, said: “It’s a case of ‘practising what we teach’ as we will encourage teachers to use this as an educational tool to support learning on climate change. “It’s a great device, saving the county council money and improving energy efficiency.”

News

New police website could ‘make people feel less safe’ Mixed views as police release details of crime in your area A website which allows people to see exactly how much crime has been committed in their area has sparked debate among residents across the district. By typing a postcode into police.uk, anyone can immediately find out what has been going on locally. Residents are given ways to contact their local policing team and can see what their team is doing to make the area safer. The website allows residents to view figures for burglary, robbery, violence, vehicle crime, other crime and antisocial behaviour. The site was developed by the National Policing Improvement Agency on behalf of the Home Office and involved close collaboration between all 43 police forces in England and Wales. Martin Richards, Chief Constable of Sussex Police, said: “We aim to raise awareness of what we are doing to tackle crime and disorder and how local people can support their local police. “This new technology will allow us to provide more relevant information to the community.” Cllr Morwen Millson, Liberal Democrat county councillor for Horsham Riverside, said: “There are some very useful features, such as the identity of local police community support officers (PCSOs) and local crime prevention events. “But I am concerned that rather than making people feel safer it will have the reverse effect.

“Entering my postcode brought up a map for a large part of Horsham, part of the Denne and Forest neighbourhood. “At first glance I was horrified to find 90 crimes listed for the area for December, including 46 incidents of antisocial behaviour and nine of violent crime. “On further reflection, this is three crimes a day in a part of Horsham that includes the railway station and the park, as well as a number of routes from the town centre pubs. “Under those circumstances, the figures are entirely believable. But I think more could be done to reassure people who may be afraid to walk home at night.” Cllr Frank Wilkinson, Conservative county councillor for Storrington, said: “It is a chance for residents to get the information that I get on a regular basis when I attend the parish councils in my division every month. “At the meetings there is always the local Community PC or the PCSO to give an update on local crime. “The website will do the same and enable residents to be in touch with what the police are doing. “More importantly it will give them the chance to speak out if they are not happy with the performance of the police.”

there are lots of burglaries in an area you might want “toIfknow to get a nice security alarm. I may be more likely to look at the website when I’m older and want a house.” Robert Gray 80, from Horsham

I don’t ever use the internet, but I think my daughters “will probably use this website. It will give you places to avoid and we will know what’s going on.” Sophie Khawaja 16, former Collyer’s student

It could scare you, being quite terrifying if you research “your area and find out there’s a lot of crime. It could damage the reputation of an area and lead to fewer people wanting to live there.

Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe in Horsham’s town centre has unveiled its latest window displays, which were created by students at Collyer’s sixth form college. The traditional-style confectioners, worked with first year students studying the BTEC in Art and Design to create the eye-catching, Valentine’s-themed window dressings. The masterpieces can be used to form elements of their portfolios. The project was part of the shop’s plans to involve and support the local community. Director Anthony O’Callaghan said: “We like to get involved with the local community. This initiative provided a great way for us to make some ties with the local people, something we want to continue to do. I am so happy with the results that we would like to do it again for different occasions. The end result is fantastic!” Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe and

Advice from the expert Q

I recently started to think about the future and ways to ensure financial security for my family. I am worried that I could leave behind a large Inheritance Tax Bill and wondered what I can do to reduce it? Philip Lansberry, Director of Spofforths Private Client Services Team

A

When surviving spouses, including civil partners, were given the right to offset against the value of their estate any unused IHT allowance left over from their late spouse’s estate there was generous applause from all quarters. But this concession has brought about the almost complete demise of the nil rate band will trust. Further investigation might reveal the need to have not one but two such trusts however. This would apply to those who remarry after the death of their first spouse, and for the spouses of such persons. Such occurrences are not so uncommon these days and the very considerable IHT savings available are invariably not fully appreciated following a second marriage. For those who have included a nil rate band will trust in their wills and are wondering whether or not to keep it, each case should be reviewed very carefully as the current IHT regime could change. Other will trusts including spousal by-pass trusts are also not used to the extent necessary to ensure those who could benefit from them do so.

Business

In the first of a series of interviews with local business people who ‘make it work’ juggling business and home life, James Hood talks to Vince Di Lena from The Company Hairdressing about the importance of finding your passion, being focused and good coffee.

The

Interview I’m greeted with a smile and a genuine welcome from the staff when I walk into The Lounge coffee shop and bar at The Company Hairdressing in Horsham and I get the kind of first-class service that would give a top London hotel a run for its money. Here, customer is clearly King and I soon discover, when I sit down with Managing Director Vince Di Lena, it’s a philosophy that trickles down from the top. It was working in his father’s hairdressers as a boy, after the family had moved from Italy to Leicestershire, where Vince learnt the basics of cutting hair and discovered his

passion for (the very Italian) customer service flair. But it’s not exceptional service alone that has been the secret to Vince’s success. As an ambitious, and bold, 16 year-old he wrote a letter to the best salon in Leicestershire asking for work experience and soon after, he was on the payroll. “I have always had a strong work ethic thanks to my Dad, who wouldn’t let any of us lie in bed in the morning. He would get up at the crack of dawn and get to work, and I have the same attitude. When I finished school, I knew getting a job was the right move. Practical learning was much better for me than a more academic path” Vince says. Years of honing his craft later, and after stints in Vietnam and Australia, it was another letter that would open the doors to The Company Hairdressing in Horsham, where the existing leaseholders of the building were

contemplating retirement. Along with his business partner, with whom he also owns another salon in Leatherhead, Vince opened The Company in 2005 followed shortly after by The Lounge below. It has since expanded into products, selling beauty brand Prive exclusively in the UK. From early on, Vince knew exactly what the point of difference would be for customers: “I knew that people could get a haircut anywhere, but what they couldn’t be sure of was the quality of the overall experience. So at The Company you get service that is second-to-none. All the salon staff members receive as much training on service as they do on hair styling. Plus we have a great coffee shop and bar. All of which really sets us apart”, says Vince. His business has gone from strength to strength, so what’s the secret to its success? According to Vince: “You need to be more than

just ambitious. It takes focus, positive thinking. And sometimes you need to just take a chance”. It’s not all work and no play for Vince though. In his downtime he plays sport, spends time with his wife and young children and walks the dog, not forgetting a 6am swim every day before work, which, he says, keeps him mentally alert. It’s a balance that has clearly worked well for him and one that he hopes will stand The Company, and The Lounge, in good stead for the future. And finally, a question we will ask all those who brave ‘The Interview’: taking his six-day working week, young family and daily exercise into consideration – how does he make it work? “I’m really passionate about what I do which makes things easier” Vince says. “I’m also really organised, and drink lots of coffee!” An Italian blend, naturally.

New business training centre open Show of support for local businesses with the unveiling of new training courses and facilities in Horsham James Hood Business Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

A new training centre has been officially opened in Horsham that will provide local businesses and their employees with a place to study short courses. Horsham Training Centre will offer facilities that are focused on helping people with their corporate or professional development and include a wide range of subjects such as leadership and management, IT skills and health and safety. The centre, which is on Hurst Road in Horsham, forms part of Central Sussex College and all courses will be run by a team of experienced trainers.

As well as training, the centre, which is in a central location and close to Horsham Train Station, will have conference and meeting spaces available for businesses to hire in a bright and modern environment. Horsham Training Centre was officially opened on Friday February 4 by the Minister for the Cabinet Office, Right Honourable Francis Maude MP. At the event guests included representatives from Gatwick Airport Ltd, Sussex Enterprise, Beales department store and Horsham District Council who were given the opportunity to tour the building. They were also served with Champagne and canapés – which had been made and served by students from Central Sussex College. Right Honourable Francis Maude MP also unveiled a

commemorative plaque to mark the occasion. He said: “There’s a very fast-growing world of developing countries with not only cheap labour but also skilled labour. What you are doing here is seeing how businesses need to expand to people’s needs.”

The opening has given those involved a vote of confidence in the support for local businesses. Dr Russell Strutt, principal, said: “Horsham District Council has given us great support in getting this centre off the ground. We are particularly keen to support the rural economy as well as the town of Horsham.” An open day is being held for those interested in taking a look around and finding out more about the centre on Saturday February 12 between 10am and 2pm. Visitors will get the chance to talk to trainers and find out the full range of courses available as well as taking part in free business masterclasses that will run throughout the day.

You’re hired While unemployment remains high, Horsham-based company Damovo demonstrates foresight and faith by employing apprentices to help shape its future. James Hood Business Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

You might think this isn’t really a good time for National Apprentice Week (7 – 11 February). After all, recruitment is suffering in the workplace according to the Office for National Statistics which last month announced 2.5 million people (including one in five 16 to 24-yearolds) are out of work. Then there’s the reluctance from many organisations to invest in more staff, or anything else, until we’re home and dry from the recession.

We have seen great ‘value bringing young people into the business ’

information communication technology products and services, runs a two-year apprenticeship programme that includes study at Central Sussex College to achieve the technical certificate and a workplace assessment. For the first six to nine months, apprentices work in a variety of roles allowing Damovo to establish where they would be most suitable within the business. Alex Williams, head of technical support, believes the scheme plays a big part in the success and growth of the organisation: “We have seen great value bringing young people into the business. Many senior people at Damovo started out as apprentices themselves. As a result, when we decided to restart our apprentice scheme two years ago we already recognised the benefit of apprentices bringing enthusiasm and fresh ideas into the business”. The benefits don’t end there either. Training, developing and nurturing staff and promoting from within can help to weather the storm during an economic downturn. Damovo’s strategy is to gain loyalty from its staff in the hope that their experience and knowledge will put them in a strong position in the

Bright young things - Damovo’s apprentices. Standing behind: Matt Wellings (left) and Brendon Bow (right). Sitting (from left) Tom Cluer, James Annetts, Tom Wilkinson, Cameron Fraser, Luke Jones, Ben Elsden and Liam Rogers. Also part of the team but not pictured: Sam Reeves and Kieran O’Neill

future and it has already placed some of the current intake in permanent positions. “Apprentices are now playing an important role in our thinking around succession planning, as when we look to fill vacancies we are initially seeking to promote people internally and create opportunities at a junior level”. Such schemes also have a major impact on the lives and careers of the young professionals who take

part and can provide vital support both in the workplace and, in some instances, financially to help them reach their potential. One of Damovo’s protégés is Liam Rogers, who commented: “I am enjoying my time as an apprentice as it allows me to learn on the job rather than in a full-time classroom environment. The pressure of satisfying my customers and understanding business needs on a day-to-day basis

means I am also learning more. I have made a lot of new friends as well”. So now could be the time to consider how this type of programme or recruitment can help your business. As Damovo has shown, such schemes can help secure a bright future, for both the business and those working for it.

A new Horsham café and salon shows there’s profit in protecting the planet

The ethical effect Board vacancies If you own or run a business, you are probably well informed about how to make it more environmentally friendly and reduce your carbon footprint. But a Horsham café and hairdressers is part of a growing number of companies making a business model out of reducing their impact on the environment and going organic, while passing the benefits onto its customers. Fusion, in Horsham’s Park Place near Piries Place offers food in its ground floor café and has a hairdressers and beauty salon above and the products they use and sell are all either organic or sourced from local suppliers. The format, which is increasingly popular as we all become more aware of our responsibility to protect our planet, is something that owners Nigel and Glen Miller are passionate about: “Our aim is to give customers what they want, and we felt that people are as keen on protecting the environment and supporting the local community as we are. So we thought, why not make our business an ethical one?” said Nigel. Just some of the unique products in their coffee shop include locally sourced cupcakes, meats from nearby farms, sausage rolls from a shop in

Henfield that has been making them for 125 years, and a tea blended especially to suit the local water. Even the artwork on the walls is created by a local artist and is evidence of their commitment to the local area. So is going green going well? “Considering we only opened last month, we’ve done really well and improved week on week. And customers come back again and again”.

Everyone’s talking about Newsagent Provocateur Horsham’s newsagent turned comedy and TV star is on stage, where he belongs, this weekend James Hood Entertainment Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

Music contract in sight for local singer-songwriter Alice Ella, a singer and songwriter from Horsham, has made it through to the live, regional auditions of Live and Unsigned. Alice will now compete with some of the most talented musicians in the country in front of thousands of spectators and judges from Radio 1, NME Radio and Kerrang, in a bid to get signed. Live and Unsigned is a national music competition, which attracts

over 10,000 musicians and bands each year. Those who enter have the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of some of the country’s top producers, record label executives and DJs. Finalists could get the chance to perform on stage at The O2 for the Live and Unsigned Festival and the overall winner will receive a recording and management contract with Future Music.

The town’s favourite cheeky newsagent returns in the second of his live stand-up comedy shows this Saturday night (February 12) at The Hawth in Crawley. John O’Sullivan, the Newsagent Provocateur, has written and produced the show himself which will include a mix of improvised on-stage antics and on-screen footage. John, who is considered to be a future star of British comedy, became notorious in the town after displaying humorous, but sometimes controversial, newspaper headlines on billboards outside his newsagents, The Candy Box. He has since appeared on TV as part of John Bishop’s Britain and taken part in Come Dine With Me. Talking about Saturday’s show John said: “If a bit of toilet humour is your thing, you’ll have a good night. If not, go and see Joe Pasquale instead”. If John’s first stage performance last year is anything to go by, this one

will be entertaining and maybe a tiny bit outrageous. It is a second act not to be missed. The show is almost sold out, selling an impressive 650 tickets. But there are still some available if you want to go. Visit hawth.co.uk for more information and to book. You can follow John O’Sullivan on twitter @newsagentprovoc or ‘like’ Newsagent Provocateur on Facebook.

Greatness from The Glass Room Lisa Cozens has a listen to the Horsham band’s latest release Empyrean is a belter of a tune from the alternative rocksmiths The Glass Room. At well under three minutes, Richard Jende’s drums and vocalist Scott Moulding’s bass power it along with masterful speed, while Darren O’Neill’s guitar melodies are urgent

and skittish around them. The production and mixing is sublime, part due to expert help from Mark Rinaldi (Breaking Benjamin, Beyonce, Artetha Franklin, Aerosmith). The Glass Room has proven in the past to be an intelligent, adaptable

band, and they are focused on achieving greatness. The single is released on February 18. You can download it and follow the band at facebook. com/theglassroom To submit a review of a local band, email James Hood, Entertainment Editor at james@the-resident.co.uk

‘Just one more thing…’ Lieutenant Columbo, the disorganised, disheveled-looking but loveable detective from the 70s TV drama comes to The Capitol’s stage in Horsham from Tuesday March 1 to Saturday 5 March in Prescription: Murder. The original TV show was pioneering as the first in the murder mystery genre to show ‘who done it’ at the beginning of the story. In this on-stage performance, produced by Middle Ground Theatre Company and directed by Michael Lumney, some of the UK’s best actors John Guerrasio, Richard Walsh and Brian Capron come together for a crime thriller that the Times called “top notch”. In this story, the Flemming’s marriage is in trouble. On returning from a late night consultation, Doctor Flemming has to soothe his angry wife with the promise of a long overdue vacation. When she is found dead, Columbo is brought in to investigate and the seeds of doubt are planted in his mind. Visit columbo-prescription-murder.com for details and contact The Capitol Box Office on 01403 750220 or visit thecapitolhorsham.com Showing at 7.30pm nightly and 2.30pm matinee on Saturday Tickets: Tue-Thur £18, concessions £16, Fri & Sat £19.50, concessions £17, Sat matinee £15.50

Star comes to The Capitol James Hood talks to Brian Capron, star of Prescription Murder, The Columbo stage show at The Capitol He’s best known for his role as evil Richard Hillman in Coronation Street, but Brian Capron has had a long and successful performing career in both television and on stage. Next month (from March 1-5) he stars in Lieutenant Columbo Prescription: Murder at The Capitol. He says he is thrilled to be part of a show based on such an iconic TV series and to work with such esteemed actors: “I think this is a superb script and that John Guerrasio is one of the finest people in the business. I also love to play an American character”, Brian said. It was by chance that Brian got his first role on stage as a boy when the lead in the school play left, allowing Brian to step in. He went to stage school next and had a long stint working in theatre in Exeter learning the ropes, followed by TV fame. So which does he prefer, stage or screen? “I am just happy to have had such great projects to work on in my life and don’t really have a preference. There is nothing like being in front of a live audience, but being in a studio is great fun too”. Brian is passionate about the arts and is thrilled there is still such a thriving community of dedicated theatre fans. “It was thought that theatre would die out as blockbusters took over the cinema screens, but it is as special and

important today as ever”, he said. So with all his work, how does he relax? “I like to go to the beach in Hove with my family. I have grownup kids and grandchildren so there’s never a dull moment. In more peaceful times I love audio books, and of course, a drop of wine”. Finally, in the age of the TV talent contest, what advice would he give young budding stage stars? “It is really hard to break into the industry but go to a really good stage school, where you will meet agents. It worked out ok for me. Failing that, try and get in on the production side. Break a leg!” Visit thecapitolhorsham.com for tickets or call the Box Office on 01403 750220

Fit for a King Review Everything that has been said about the King’s Speech is true. It is a top class film, which had the audience laughing out loud and leaving with a lump in their throat. The film revolves around the true story of George VI, known as Bertie, the father of our present queen, and follows his quest to become a proficient public speaker despite a debilitating stammer. Colin Firth delivers a masterly performance as the shy Duke of York who eventually became king after the abdication of his brother Edward. The fear in his eyes when confronting the large crowds drew us all in and the superb cinematography meant we felt as though we were facing them too. Never has waiting for someone to speak been so nerve wracking. Colin Firth brought a bit of Darcy to his performance as he often hid behind his position, to fend off difficult conversations. His relationship with his Australian speech therapist, Lionel, played by Geoffrey Rush, was perfectly drawn and added the humour. The dialogue was crisp and clever and Helena Bonham Carter played Bertie’s wife so well it has been reported that our present Queen complimented her

performance. The script, with its wit and social observation, was at times reminiscent of Oscar Wilde. The highlights of this film are undoubtedly the speech therapy sessions where Lionel, a failed actor, won’t bow to protocol and gets his royal patient swearing like a trooper! Gradually Lionel leads him on a voyage of self-discovery to uncover the cause of his speech impediment. Royal life is portrayed as one of duty and sacrifice and it is impossible not to feel admiration for Bertie’s persistence. When Lionel states “perhaps he should change his job” at the beginning of the film (unaware of the identity of his new patient) the reply is “He can’t”. And we realise the enormity of his task. Watch out for super cameo roles from Timothy Spall as Winston Churchill and Derek Jacobi as the Archbishop of Canterbury, who has problems putting the crown on the right way. It is rare to see such a polished crafted film and it makes you proud to be British. It is also a lesson in history, so make sure you don’t miss it when it returns to the Capitol again on February 18.

And the nominees are... Julia Martin previews Britain’s answer to The Oscars For the film lovers out there, the key date this week is not February 14th, but 13th, as it’s the evening of the glittering British Academy Film Awards. Sponsored by Orange, it is arguably, one of the most prestigious awards  ceremonies for the film industry and this year there are a plethora of British films up for awards. There are already two certainties; the Harry Potter series will receive the award for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema and Christopher Lee (Lord of the Rings and Dracula)  will receive the  Fellowship of the Academy. The rest is a mystery until the night and we await the “and the winner is…” with bated breath. I am going to  declare that The King’s Speech should win the  Best Picture category and Colin Firth, Best Actor. Fingers crossed for Natalie Portman who is up for Best Actress in Black Swan, which is also worthy of awards for editing and cinematography. In my opinion, Actors in a supporting role Baftas should go to Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush for The King’s Speech. If you’ve seen it you’ll understand why. And if you haven’t, check out my review. Best of luck to all the nominees. Best Film Black Swan Inception The King’s Speech The Social Network True Grit

Shoes, glorious shoes! Julia Martin Health & Lifestyle

julia.martin@the-resident.co.uk

I did not realise how much I have missed shoes this winter. No, I have not been walking barefoot but I have been espousing the the tradition of long black boots to keep my legs warm and ward off the last vestiges of the cold weather. The other evening, I rediscovered the delicious feeling of walking tall in a fabulous pair of high heels again.

Not only did I feel slimmer and taller but I also had the sensation of my calf muscles being stretched, and I did read somewhere recently that high heels can keep the derriere lifted which is always a bonus. Imagine my despair when I was advised by the fashionistas that flat heels are in vogue this season and high heels are passe. This is due, apparently, to the popularity of a new show on Sky television called ‘Boardwalk Empire’ which is set in the 1920s, and that style is making a comeback! This is a disaster for any woman who sports any form of curves as the dresses hang from the fullest point downwards and make you resemble a paper bag of apples, unless you are stick thin with no bust or hips. I will certainly be giving this trend a miss. I will continue to treasure my moments with my forbidden highheeled shoes too. I do think that shoes can be underrated - there is nothing more revealing of a personality than a choice of shoes. I have a very dear friend who will not give a man a second look unless they are sporting a pair of leather brogues

from a particular up market establishment in London. I vividly remember a very heated argument between her and a fellow male colleague who had the misfortune to turn up in a pair of synthetic soled shoes - it was an affront to her that a man could creep up and not be heard. Needless to say, the next day, the male colleague changed his shoes. When I find a pair of shoes I love, I often buy another pair in the same colour, but this can cause problems on dark mornings! I remember when I was teaching, turning up with one black and one brown shoe on, to be greeted by the withering stares of a class of adolescents, before hastily telling them that the lesson today was on prejudice and this was a test to see how much they prejudge people by appearance. It worked a treat. Phew! As you prepare for your Valentine date, give some thought to your shoes and do not be like one young man I know who looks well groomed in all aspects - hair perfect, waxed and sharply styled, clean shaven, collar just raised enough to look cool, designer clothes suitably ironed and then you look at his feet and he is sporting a pair of rather grubby plimsolls. Maybe he is really still a school boy at heart? This week’s highlight will be Valentine’s Day, unless you are single, when you suddenly feel like you have sprouted an extra head as

everywhere is geared up to couples. Take heart though and go and buy a gorgeous pair of shoes and you will not have to worry about being too tall for your partner - step out in style! See you in the shoe shop! For you single chaps, I recommend purchasing a quality pair of leathersoled shoes to set you apart from the rest. We are announcing the winners of our Valentine’s competition this week and the lucky winners will enjoy a gastronomic delight with a meal at the Greets Inn as well as a stylish hair cut at Studio 2 and then a portrait sitting with Andrea Sarlo! We certainly look after you here at The Resident! We will be running further competitions in the coming weeks so look out for them. We will be featuring the lucky winners next week. If you want an excuse to get out your dancing shoes then you can do no better than head over to Salsa Evolution and if you want a party dress, then visit La Vida for a beautiful selection - and they sell shoes too! Finally, they say that to know someone properly, you need to walk a mile in their shoes - well I sure do not want them to be plimsolls but I am also glad that I am lucky enough to have shoes. I will never forget the little boys I met in South Africa who had the toughest soles from walking and running over the roughest terrain with no shoes. So celebrate those shoes and enjoy!

Red roses in the South West Our resident Feng Shui expert gives us her advice for Valentine’s 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.

Love this year can be found in the South West and North West of your home. You can increase your chances of love by using a pair of red candles

and pictures of couples in this area and this will encourage romance and harmony. Monday 14th February is a Water Rat day. Rats are thought to be communicators, so words should flow easily that day (maybe even a proposal but hopefully not from a love rat!) So on the 14th February set the scene by playing music on the west wall at home and work to encourage fun and creativity. If you are having a night in, place red candles and roses in this area and if possible wine and dine here even if it is just for this night! Alternatively if you are going out to dine then ask the waiter for a table in the South West but take a compass in case he has no idea where it is in the restaurant! As it is the year of the Metal Rabbit, take care as a baby boom is predicted!

Learn to run! Have you ever wanted to start running but not known how? Do you feel like you’re too old or unfit to be a runner? Or maybe you walked the Race for Life this year and you’re wondering whether next year you could do it at a jog. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to run then this is your chance. On 1st March 2011, Horsham Joggers is starting a 10-week “Learn to Run” course. The aim is to take absolute beginners from nothing to running 5 km (about 3 miles) – and to have some fun along the way. The instructors, Catherine and Trish, both qualified Leaders in Running Fitness, will start off slowly, making sure no-one is left behind. “Anyone can join in,” says Catherine. “No matter what age or fitness level you’re at, with our help you can start running and you’ll have a great time doing it!” And it’s not just running. A 20-minute talk each Tuesday evening on everything from shoes to stretching will give you all the information you need to enjoy the exercise and

stay injury-free. “Running is just such a great base for any sport,” says Trish. “And it’s sociable! People won’t believe it at the beginning, but by the end they’ll be happily running and chatting – yes, at the same time – to whoever is with them.” The main meeting will be at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre each Tuesday at 7pm for a talk followed by a run (expect to be at the centre for an hour in total). Practice runs (no talk) will go from the same location on Thursdays at 7pm and Sundays at 9am. If you can’t make those times, practice runs can be done on your own or with friends you’ll meet at the group. The price for the 10 weeks is £50, which includes a year’s membership of Horsham Joggers and a free technical T-shirt to set you on your way. (And if you don’t know what a technical t-shirt is, come along and find out!) For more information and to book, call 07552 755490 or email cath@ cathbooth.com.

Property

the-resident.co.uk

Something a little special This impressive, picturesque family home is situated in the centre of the highly sought after hamlet of Dial Post. The property was constructed with the inclusion of reclaimed materials from the original building which was a Tudor period home that had various uses throughout the ages; including a guest house and restaurant. The accommodation has been sympathetically restored to combine the character features and charm with a contemporary style and practical designs. In our opinion this is something a little special! The house is set behind a hedgerow boundary providing seclusion from the road, with a central pedestrian gate leading to the front door between two raised lawns. A five bar gate leads to the shingle driveway which accommodates car parking for numerous vehicles. The stunning front elevation combines Tudor style beams with white render. There is a mature Wisteria which flowers spectacularly in May. The panelled front door leads to an open plan reception hall with original style exposed wooden floor and exposed ceiling beams with a modern style track of spot lights. From the hall there is a door to the

right hand side providing access to the drawing room which has a front aspect bay window with window seat inset, exposed wooden floor, fitted book shelves and a recessed chimney breast with contemporary fireplace. From the hall there are open plan reception rooms with a front aspect bay window with window seat inset and rear aspect sliding doors to the garden. The rooms are connected by a large opening and there are exposed varnished wooden floor boards, contemporary colour schemes including painted ceiling beams. There are double doors leading to the expansive double bay conservatory which is versatile and extremely spacious measuring approximately 26’7 x 18’8. The immaculate modern fitted kitchen/ dining room is a particular feature of the property. There are dual aspect rear and side windows, a wooden breakfast bar/ table with base level unit below. There is a range of matching base and eye level units and cupboards with Granite work surfaces complete with inset sink and drainer. There is space for a cooking range and a door leads to the utility room and cloakroom W.C. The first floor accommodation offers four double bedrooms accessed from a spacious landing, with a fitted

bathroom with independent shower and panel enclosed bath. The top floor offers three further double bedrooms and a shower room. These rooms are very interesting shapes and there is an abundance of eaves storage space. The upper floors continue with the character theme offering quirky and pleasant accommodation. The Staging House stands in the heart of the village, overlooking a beautiful Georgian House and

Selling agent Connells is urging those interested in purchasing a property at Berkeley Southern’s (Ltd) prestigious development, The Paddocks in Horsham, to attend the launch of the last remaining showhome on Saturday 19th February. Amberley House, a wonderful fivebedroom detached property, is just one of two remaining houses for sale at The Paddocks. At the launch, potential purchasers will have the opportunity to view this stunning new show home, which has been immaculately designed with superb specification and fully furnished, as well as reserve one of the remaining houses on the day. “This stunning collection of new

homes has proven very popular. With just two properties remaining we are urging anyone interested in purchasing one of the houses to attend the launch of the new show home and avoid the disappointment of missing out on buying a new home at this wonderful development,” says Ben Annetts, Head of Sales and Marketing at Berkeley Southern (Ltd). The Paddocks is a secluded development of just 13 semi-detached and detached houses, set at the end of a private cul-de-sac. As part of Berkeley’s Village Collection, the development offers the best of village life and the local community with the convenience of modern living. It is situated in a location where everyday modern needs are met by a range of

local amenities and facilities. “The Paddocks is a magnificent collection of houses with easy access to local amenities and the open Sussex countryside. We look forward to welcoming potential purchasers at the event, which I’m sure will attract a high level of interest,” says Sarah Turpin. For further information about The Paddocks, where the remaining properties are priced from £725,000, or to book your place at the launch, contact Connells Horsham office on 01403 256331 or visit the branch at 31 Carfax, Horsham. Alternatively, you can contact the marketing suite, which is open from Thursday to Monday between 10am and 5pm, on 01403 251862.

adjacent to the village green. The village hall and the popular local public house are close by. Across the green lies the boundary of the Knepp Castle Estate, with extensive country walks and bountiful wildlife. The Kitchen opens onto the rear garden via a utility area and cloakroom. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. At one corner there is a large patio, positioned to catch the last rays of

sunshine from the west. One major asset of this property is the detached 258sq ft home office which has power, light and data points.

Q A

Do I really need a ‘For Sale’ board when I put my property on the market?

No you don’t need a For Sale sign. In fact, if all you want to do is sell your property, you don’t actually need an estate agent at all! You could simply take a picture of your house and place it in the local newsagent’s window. However, before you dash outside and start setting up your tripod, a word of caution. Whilst you may well sell your property, you will definitely not achieve the highest price and will undoubtedly sell for many thousands of pounds less than your house is actually worth. This is because you will not reach the vast majority of buyers that need to know you are selling. Without this exposure, your demand will be limited to those people that happen to visit the local newsagent, happen to glance in the window, and happen to be looking for a house like yours – so severely limiting your options! Good estate agents are experts at knowing where your target market is and hence will use their many resources to reach that market on your behalf, whether via property websites, local property papers, office window displays, glossy magazines and lastly, the ubiquitous For Sale board. So whilst they may not be the most aesthetically-pleasing things to have stuck outside your home, boards can help stack things as much as possible in your favour; after all, it only takes the right person to pass the end of your garden gate and spot the board, for it to have been worth having. This exact scenario has happened too many times over the last 20 or so years for me to be able to ignore it on my client’s behalf! Also, if you ever spent a day in my office you would notice just how many incoming calls come from For Sale boards and would be convinced of their merit. If a property is on a busy road, is not terribly attractive from the outside or is next door to a petrol station for instance, then a board is essential because if someone calls from it, they obviously already know about the busy road, external appearance or petrol station and so have already accepted what could have been the only potential disadvantage to the house. So my advice is to insist on your agent erecting a board as it will only help, but also do not forget that it is only one of many methods estate agents have of generating interest in your house and if there are personal reasons why you do not want one, don’t be bullied into having one! If you are contemplating putting your house on the market or would like to ask a question, I would be delighted to hear from you.

Q A

How can I improve my chances of having a good income when I retire?

Planning for your retirement can be complex and requires guidance from your Independent Financial Adviser. There are however 10 basic steps to improving your pension income.

1. Start saving for your retirement early, obvious but true. Saving little and often makes a big difference. 2. Join your employer’s scheme if they have one. By joining an employer’s scheme you can often benefit from additional contributions made by your employer. 3. Take advantage of tax relief. Make the most of the tax breaks available to you, especially if you are a higher rate or additional rate tax payer. 4. Increase the control you have over where you invest your money. Investing in the right funds at the right time can make a significant difference to the overall performance of your pension. 5. National Insurance contributions. In some circumstances it may benefit you to make extra contributions. 6. Make additional payments into your personal pension plan. You should review your pension planning regularly at least once a year. 7. Take advantage of an Open Market Option. When you are nearing retirement it may benefit you to shop about for your annuity rather than just accepting the one offered by your scheme. 8. By an annuity that offers special terms. In some cases it may benefit you to make a medical or lifestyle disclosure, simply informing your annuity provider that you smoke may increase the income you receive. 9. Consider the alternatives to annuity purchase. If you have a larger fund and are happy to accept a more complex solution, then there are alternatives which may suit you. Common alternatives include income drawdown and phased retirement. If you would like to know more then it is vital that you obtain specialist advice from your IFA. 10. Get advice and keep informed of your options. Planning for retirement isn’t a one off decision. By starting a dialogue early with an independent financial advisor you can benefit from a professional relationship which will improve the chances of you enjoying a financially comfortable retirement. If you would like to discuss any of the points raised then please contact me on (01403) 268562 or e-mail info@ mercierallen.co.uk Please note that this article does not constitute as advice, anyone seeking independent advice should contact an independent financial adviser.

Q A

I own a 2 bedroom flat in Horsham and now wish to sell, however my solicitor says that my Lease has only 65 years to go and a buyer will not be able to get a mortgage. Is my flat now unsaleable?

The Leasehold Reform, Housing & Urban Development Act 1993 provides residential long leaseholders the right to collective enfranchisement and to an extended lease. These rights became enforceable from the 1st November 1993. Provided you have owned your flat or maisonette for more than two years, you are entitled to a 90 year extension to your current lease. Once you have extended your lease, the ground rent will become “peppercorn” (i.e. £1 per annum) for the entire term. Before commencing formal proceedings or negotiations, it is recommended that you obtain a formal valuation from an independent chartered surveyor as to the likely premium and associated costs. The benefits of obtaining a lease extension include; • Increasing the value of your property • Enhancing saleability if you decide to sell • No more ground to pay for the duration of the entire term Once you have decided to apply for the lease extension, you will need to instruct a solicitor to serve a formal notice on your behalf under Section 42 of the 1993 Act. The landlord must serve his Counter-Notice by the date specified in the leaseholder’s Notice. It can; • Agree your right to the new lease and accept your terms (or propose alternative terms), or • not admit your right and give reasons, which will need to be determined by the county court. If the leaseholder and landlord cannot agree the premium or any other aspects of the conveyance, there is a statutory period for negotiation of at least two months but not more than six. At this stage, we will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the other side’s surveyor. If agreement is reached, matters can complete in the normal way. If a settlement is not reached, the solicitor will need to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT) for an independent determination on any unresolved issues. In cases where we believe it would be in your best interests to obtain a determination of the LVT, we will need to prepare submissions, which include an Expert report from us and a Statement of Agreed Facts and Matters in Dispute. We will then attend the hearing on your behalf, giving evidence and providing comparables and other relevant evidence to support our case. We have attended many such hearings over the last few years and have considerable expertise in this regard.

The above information is meant as a general guide only. Should you require any further information or advice, please do not hesitate to contact Duncan Jagger MRICS on 01403 732727

World debut for LFA Nürburgring Package at Geneva motor show The most exclusive Lexus yet built, the LFA supercar gains an even more track-focused profile with the addition of the bespoke Nürburgring Package, to be shown in public for the first time at the Geneva motor show in March. Aimed at customers looking for even greater levels of performance from the V10 supercar, the Nürburgring Package is available on a maximum of 50 of the 500 cars that are being built. It provides additional aerodynamic features and technical revisions to improve handling and downforce, increases engine output by 10bhp to 562bhp and speeds up gear shifts in the six-speed sequential transmission. Lexus will also be presenting the new CT 200h, the first and only full hybrid model in the luxury hatchback segment, just ahead of its market launch. Europe-wide enquiries about the new car are 40 per cent higher than expected and customer orders are 50 per cent above Lexus’s plan. Appearing alongside the GS 450h executive sports saloon, RX 450h luxury SUV and LS 600h limousine, CT 200h provides Lexus with the only comprehensive range of full hybrid models in Europe. CT 200h is expected to drive Lexus’s European sales higher, with an anticipated increase of more than 60 per cent in a premium market that is predicted to remain flat overall.

Vauxhall proud sponsors of the England national team The agreement runs from 1 January 2011 to 31 July 2014, encompassing UEFA Euro 2012™ in Poland-Ukraine and the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil. In addition to becoming Lead Partner to the men’s senior national team, the partnership includes sponsorship of all other 23 representative England sides – including the women’s teams, men’s youth teams and all the England disability sides. It will also see Vauxhall become the Official Vehicle Supplier to The FA and the governing body’s Official Youth Partner, covering activities undertaken to promote football in the 12-18-year-old age group. “This announcement represents a major landmark for The FA and the England teams” said FA General Secretary Alex Horne. “I am looking forward to a long and prosperous relationship with Vauxhall in the coming years. “Through a difficult economic climate we have concluded a deal of considerable value to the FA and we can now look forward with optimism. Everyone is aware of the difficulties of last year, but we have an opportunity to move forward and there is

much in 2011 to be excited about. “It is also significant news that Vauxhall are also our Official Youth Partner for 12-18 year olds, a key area of attention at the moment. Adrian Bevington, Sir Trevor Brooking and I have been investing a lot of time on our plans for Youth Development and this partnership will be key to those plans. “Vauxhall is a company with a great history and through our initial conversations it became clear they share our goals and vision for how this relationship can prove mutually beneficial. I’m very much looking forward to getting started.” Announcing the partnership at Wembley Stadium today, Vauxhall Managing Director Duncan Aldred said: “This is an historic day for Vauxhall. To become the lead partner of the England team is a great honour for us. “We are delighted to be partnering The FA and hope to be a driving force behind the further development and activation of an expansive grass roots football strategy encompassing the whole of the country. “We have a strong heritage in supporting football including official

The Football Association has announced a three-and-a-half-year agreement with Vauxhall Motors which will see the leading British vehicle manufacturer become Lead Partner to the England teams. sponsorship of the highly successful UEFA Euro ’96 Championship in England. “Football and cars are two of our nation’s biggest passions and this partnership is a clear and unequivocal sign that Vauxhall is firmly behind not only a successful England senior team but is also committed to supporting grass roots initiatives covering youth and junior football as well as women’s football and disability football.” England Manager Fabio Capello said: “I’m very happy that Vauxhall are the new team sponsor. “Vauxhall is a strong company and it is good for everyone at The FA and all the England teams that we have such a strong commercial partner. To achieve your goals in football you need as much support as possible, and it is very important for us all that Vauxhall have provided this strong commitment. “We will do all we can to reward

Vauxhall for their support and this begins with our first objective of this new year; to qualify for Euro 2012.” The agreement was negotiated by The FA’s sponsorship team, led by Peter Daire who commented: “I’m delighted that we are announcing the England Lead Partner for the next two major tournaments, sitting alongside

our existing Official Supporter and Official Supplier agreements. “Everyone at The FA was determined to link up with a brand which has national relevance and matches our aspirations. Vauxhall’s 108-year British heritage, including many years supporting football, perfectly echoes these objectives.”

How a Barns-storming Tidey finish was too much for the league leaders Green show heart and courage to register crucial win in hard-fought battle Rugby Union

Barns Green emerged as deserved winners from a brutally physical contest against league leaders Midhurst. Both sides entered the match with lengthy unbeaten runs, so a tight and tense game was expected – and delivered in front of a partisan crowd. Midhurst elected to play with the strong wind behind them in the first half,  looking to build a controlling lead using the brand of 10-man rugby that has been successful in recent weeks. Green had other ideas and started the game strongly with powerful carries from Ryan Watkinson and Tom Viney in particular. Midhurst absorbed the early pressure and began to come into the game, using their large strike runners to try to batter their way upfield in a narrow channel, but were met by some enthusiastic defence. The game moved into an absorbing

period of ebb and flow, but with 20 minutes on the clock Green made the most of a strong attacking platform. Quick lineout ball was caught and driven into the visiting 22. The ball was spun wide to galloping centre Dave Barter, who ran a superb line to crash through the home defence. He was caught by a good cover tackle just short of the line but was able to offload to Sam Callaghan who dotted down under the posts for a converted score.

The game started to become a little scrappy, both sides giving away penalties for various offences. It wasn’t long before this frustration boiled over and both sides were

reduced to 14 after an off-the-ball incident. It looked as though Green would go into the break seven points to the good, but a series of penalties afforded the visitors a good attacking platform deep in the home 22. Midhurst battered away at the home line but were knocked back until they shipped the ball wide to set up a well-constructed, converted try. “The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory” was the rallying cry in the half-time huddle and Green knew victory was within their reach with the elements behind them. The first 20 minutes of the second half was perhaps disappointing for the neutral as both sides waited for mistakes and the game became stopstart through unforced errors. Midhurst went ahead for the first time through a penalty after more indiscipline from the home forwards, but Green knew their season hinged on the outcome of this match and raised their game. A loose kick was expertly fielded

by Jamie Paige, who set up the attacking platform. Green went through the phases and Midhurst were caught with their hands in the till, enabling Dave Barter to level with a sweetly struck penalty. With the scent of victory in the air, Green knew they had to get back into visiting territory as parity on the scoreboard was not enough. Utility back Nick Lewis applied the pressure with a booming kick. Green won solid lineout ball and moved the ball wide, the ref signalled an advantage for offside and it looked as though the hosts would have an opportunity to kick themselves in front. With this in mind, a speculative pass was flung out to the backline, only for the ref to signal advantage over. Some said  it was luck, others said a moment of supreme vision, as Josh Callaghan cutely sidefooted the poor pass sideways straight into the arms of the clinical Will Tidey, who cantered in for a converted try. Midhurst capitalised on a string

But the robust Martin O’Neil again buried his opposite number, leading to a knock on and the final whistle – greeted with cheers from the home crowd and players alike. Ecstatic captain Andrew Potter said: “Victory is not won in miles but in inches and we certainly did the hard yards. “It was a great effort by the entire match day 22. Everyone showed courage and heart in ending the league leaders’ nine-game unbeaten run. “I knew if the boys stuck to the game plan and believed in their ability we had more than enough to get the result.”

Stunning try as Horsham win tough battle John Riley Youth Rugby

Horsham U14 showed enormous resilience to overcome uncompromising Hove in blustery conditions at Coolhurst. Declan Nwachukwu, Horsham’s prolific wing, left the field dazed and with a bloody nose before replacement Max Phillips made a powerful covering tackle. Fly half Callum Tusler used the wind to force his team forward and Horsham drove for the line continuously, Tom Clayton and Michael Watson both being held up. A slick move in the backs saw Aaron Pyzer brought down, but prop Jake Mallinder showed admirable strength to force his way over for an unconverted try. Tusler, Liam Ruz and Matt Blake probed for gaps, but white line fever in the middle saw a number of simple overlaps wasted when further tries looked inevitable. Hove soon made Horsham pay, levelling against the run of play despite the valiant efforts of Callum Murphy. Horsham seemed to have regained the lead when Tusler grounded the ball over the line, but the referee was unsighted and the try was not given. At half time Horsham lost prop Dan Macklin to a shoulder injury, second row James Hebbard with broken fingers and full back Matt Streeter to illness. Although Nwachukwu was able to return, Horsham heads were down due to the scoreline and the fact that they now had to play into the wind. It looked ominous for the home side as Hove drove over for a converted try to lead 12-5, but this Horsham team is extremely resilient. With Tusler, Clayton, Watson, Tom Ayre and David Fennelly showing

great determination and drive, Horsham decided a running game was the way forward and Tusler unleashed the backs. Ruz’s perfectly timed pass allowed Nwachukwu to touch down using his customary power and speed. 12-10 to Hove. For some reason Horsham abandoned their running game as the forwards tried to smash their way through a very strong Hove pack. Resolute defending, including big hits by replacements Oli Budd and Daniel Riley, kept Horsham in touch before they edged in front with a brilliant try. Scrum half Sam Holden fed quick ball to Tusler, whose quick hands saw the ball reach Ruz at outside centre just short of the half way line. Ruz ghosted past an opponent and delivered to left wing Aaron Pyzer, who took on his opposite number on the outside and rounded the full back to score under the posts. Tusler’s conversion put Horsham five points to the good, but the home side lost a couple more players to injury and conceded a needless penalty for offside. Big hits allowed Tusler to rip the ball back and, with time up, Tom Clayton cleared into touch to seal a very hard-fought victory.

Horsham U15 destroyed Worthing 60-8, thanks in part to Chris Wesson’s first-half hat-trick. Other tries came from Giles Emmerson (two), Jerry Downey (two), Simon Ashman, Joey Walker and Zac Smith, while Aled Price slotted five conversions.

Zac Chinn, Noah Chinn and Peter Neave also netted, James Cooper and George Smith were brilliant on the wing and Rory MacDonald was voted man of the match by his teammates. Five under-16s stepped up to the U18 girls team which put in a fine performance to draw 1-1 against Southgate. Captain Vicky Trumpess held the centre, ably supported by Georgia Frett and Genie Trumpess who kept the Southgate forwards at bay. Carolyn Watson was in fine form too, keeping the deficit to a solitary goal before Lizzie Wait equalised. The U16 boys lost 7-3 at Oxted, their toughest opponents so far. John Kimberley, Zac Chinn and Peter

Rayward scored, while Sam Johnson had a cracking game in goal. The U14 boys put out a young team and lost 4-0 at home to Kenley, despite great keeping by Cameron King and brave tackles by James Brehaut (U12), Jack Grant (U12) and Austin Harwood-Stamper.

Late heartache for Southwater Southwater U18 were cruelly denied a win against Predators in a 3-3 draw. Defenders Josh Skipper and Cameron Masters dominated in a goalless first half before Zak Moore ran through and slid home to put Southwater in front.

Predators came back strongly to lead 2-1, but Will Nash’s 25-yard free kick and Jack Morgan’s header edged Southwater ahead. A fine close-range save by Will Poston denied Predators, only for a late leveller to spoil Southwater’s day.

Roffey Robins Wanderers U15 climbed out of the relegation zone with this win over bottom side Billingshurst, sending them into their Plate semi-final in good heart. Wanderers started brightly, Chris Nichols and Zak Comber combining well to produce a string of chances. Dan Whittick’s quick throw and Nichols’ through ball found Comber, who dribbled past two defenders and slotted past Chris Burrell in the away goal. Whittick almost created a second goal moments later, playing a beautiful half-volley over the defence, but

Comber’s shot flew wide. Roffey enjoyed large spells of possession and created plenty of chances, with only Matthew Fagan preventing another Comber shot from finding the net. As Wanderers piled on the pressure, Nichols’ free kick was well saved by Burrell and Whittick’s follow-up hit the side netting. They eventually extended their lead when Nichols beat two players in midfield with agile turns and found Comber, who rifled home from just inside the box. Billingshurst immediately forced a corner and Thomas Curry’s flag kick curled in at the near post, with some help from the wind. It was a tale of two halves as the

away side took control after the break, forcing Elliot Stanbridge into a number of saves. Wanderers did have a few chances of their own to seal the win, Sam Collins hitting the side netting and Comber seeing his hat-trick attempt saved. But Sam Welch hit the crossbar and seemed set to grab a last-gasp equaliser, only to be thwarted by a superb challenge by Roffey captain Tom Barnes.

Chloe does trick for Sparrows Horsham Sparrows Girls U13 fought back to draw 2-2 at Littlehampton Girls U13. Sparrows fell two goals down in a wind so strong that Chloe Abbott, whose goal kicks usually reach the opposition half, was barely able to get the ball out of the area. A composed finish by Sienna Haydon reduced Sparrows’ arrears and they levelled through Abbott’s sweetly struck free kick, even though the wind dropped considerably.

3-goal Jacob is a Royal prince A hat-trick by Jacob Waller and a goal from Jake Legrange helped Royal United U15 to a 4-3 win at Albury. United followed up with a scintillating performance to beat Dorking Saints Lions 2-0, dominating the match from start to finish. Royals crafted out chance after chance, but a fine display by Dorking’s keeper kept the scoreline respectable. Connor Cushing and Alex Parsons dominated in midfield while Anthony Jupp, Harry Garman, Tom Frankland and Joshua Wood also excelled. Missed chances cost Roffey Robins Athletic U15 two extra points in a 1-1 draw against Lower Beeding Lions U15. Zac Malinsky headed in George Hole’s corner after six minutes, but Lower Beeding equalised through Sam Hayter. Dan Goddard and Matt Sigrist went

close for Robins and Craig McCreadie saw a goal ruled out, while Max Albert was Lions’ man of the match. Lower Beeding Lions U14 overcame Cranleigh 2-1 with goals by Liam Ruz and Aaron Pyzer, the clincher from Callum Nash’s cross. Matt Streeter and Kyran Penny impressed. Horsham YMCA U18 suffered their sixth defeat on the bounce, losing 2-0 to high-flying Burgess Hill Town at Gorings Mead. Ninety children and parents from Forest Youth will watch Crawley Town play Wrexham at the Broadfield Stadium tomorrow, the Reds’ final home match before they face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup.

Boss fumes as YM crash to defeat Tom Norris Football

Horsham YMCA’s hopes of avoiding relegation took a dent with this home defeat to fellow strugglers Corinthian Casuals. The hosts produced nothing short of a dismal performance in what had been dubbed a relegation six-pointer, casting them even further adrift at the foot of Ryman League Division One South. Boss John Cumberbatch admitted: “It was incredibly poor. We needed to

stay in touch with teams like this and it is without doubt a major dent. “We put one or two moves together, but not nearly enough to really penetrate the opposition. We could sit here for the next two hours and go through lots of things that were wrong. “Certain people weren’t working hard enough and we lacked all the

basic things that can help you get back in a game, like work rate, passion and a bit of communication. “When you are lacking your quality as well, this is the sort of result you can expect. It was very, very disappointing.” YM were lucky not to be two down inside 15 minutes as Matt Powell and Kane Sergeant squandered good chances. The home side did manage to string a few passes together. Neat work by Scott Harris and Kevin Lott set up Gavin Gordon, but the forward’s effort was straight at goalkeeper Luke

Naughton. Casuals opened the scoring when a poorly defended cross to the edge of the area found Glen Boosey, who turned and beat Mark Fox with a shot the keeper should have saved. YM failed to improve after the break and went two down within five minutes of the restart, nippy striker Shaun Lucien bundling home after Fox’s point-blank save from Sergeant. It got even worse for the hosts when Sam Robinson lashed a fierce volley into the top corner from 25 yards. And the manner of this defeat was

Swans soar over Steyning Nick Hind Football

Storrington got back to winning ways in this pulsating contest against local rivals Steyning. Derby matches are often great levellers where the form book takes a back seat, so Steyning were looking to grasp an opportunity to end their four-game losing streak. But it was the Swans who produced an away-day performance of ruthless efficiency to break home hearts once more. Kristian Harding was the destructive presence of the first half, snatching a brace inside the opening quarter as Steyning seemingly defended with their eyes shut. The striker curled into the far corner to open his account and smashed a second off the bar from a tight angle. Steyning are an enigma. They produced excellent football in treacherous conditions, working the channels and flanks capably with precise passing, but lacked a killer instinct as numerous chances went awry. Their best chance of the half fell to Dave Harris, who could only turn

in utter bemusement as goalkeeper Gary Elliott tipped onto the crossbar. It was left to Liam Humphreys to show Steyning how to score as he guided in Harding’s rifled cross. Trailing 3-0 despite having the lion’s share of the half must have been a bitter pill to swallow, but Steyning cranked up their assault after the break. Dave Shearing’s side reduced their arrears after 70 minutes, Harris rifling into the roof of the net after Brian Ray’s shot was parried. But Storrington rode the storm and Jake Cockerton bundled in from a corner to complete the scoring. Looking to the future with his young side, Shearing said: “This is a transitional phase for the club. We’ll be looking to add to the squad and mould a team that is ready to challenge next season.” Storrington boss Ricky Hamilton said: “We were spot-on tactically, defended well and took our chances.”

Maggs reeling as Hornets concede 10 in 2 matches Matthew James Sport Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

John Maggs has seen a lot during his lifetime in football, but rarely can the Horsham boss have felt quite so low as after a nightmare four days. As if a 6-0 hammering at Harrow Borough was not bad enough, the Hornets followed up by crashing to a 4-0 home defeat against Cray Wanderers which could easily have been much worse. Think of a number, double it and add three. You get the idea. Maggs appeared close to tears after holding a lengthy heart-to-heart with his non-playing staff immediately after the latest tonking. He understandably refused to say exactly what had been discussed, but it is safe to assume the turmoil in Egypt and the rising price of fuel were not on the agenda. Although confirming he intended to stay as manager, Maggs admitted he felt “hurt” by Horsham’s recent results, which also include a 7-1 home defeat by bogey side Harrow less than a month ago. Speaking to The Resident with his renowned good grace, experienced Maggs said: “We’ve got to change things on the pitch, the way we play or the personnel. Ten goals conceded in two games speaks for itself. “We were totally outplayed by a very good Cray side who outworked us, had more pace than us and had more ideas. “We need six more wins to stay in this league, but at the moment I can’t see where they’re coming from.” All credit to the devastated boss for fronting up to the media so soon after

such a crushing defeat. I can think of one or two other managers in Sussex who almost certainly would not have done so. To be fair to Horsham, Cray’s mixture of youth and experience was very impressive and it will not be a surprise if two or three of their younger players go on to better things. The visitors played the first four minutes with outfielder Aaron Day in goal and only 10 men until the real deal, Dave King, finally took his place between the sticks. Almost immediately King was called into action to thwart Gary Charman, but Day could probably have coped fairly comfortably with everything else Horsham had to offer.

six wins ‘toWestayneed in this league, but I can’t see where they’re coming from ’

Cray went ahead after 10 minutes when captain Ross Lover broke through, Alan Mansfield did well to block and Leigh Bremner knocked in the rebound. Horsham struggled to cope with the pace of Bremner, Chris Saunders and the hugely promising Danny Phillips, and the Hornets were lucky not to concede again when Bremner headed straight at Mansfield.

There was no such reprieve a minute before half time as Tony Dolby converted a penalty, awarded for Paul Kennett’s foul on Saunders. Cray continued to create chances and stretched their lead midway through the second half, the classy Alex Bentley crossing for former Charlton Athletic youngster Phillips to finish clinically from 15 yards. Substitute Tom Graves cleared off the line from Lover, but Dolby headed his second and Cray’s fourth from Lover’s corner four minutes from time. Referring to Arsenal’s collapse from four goals up at the weekend, one joker in the crowd was moved to shout: “Remember Newcastle!” That sort of gallows humour – or should that be Gallowgate humour? – will help ensure most of the seasonlow league crowd of 144 at least retain their sanity. With the carrot of a potentially historic appearance at The Amex dangling tantalisingly in front of them, Horsham’s dismal run could hardly have come at a worse time. Maggs is pleased by the possibility of a prestigious appearance in the opening match at Falmer, though less happy with the timing of a match in the middle of July. But a sun-drenched day of glory in front of thousands is doubtless far from his mind today. Survival in the Premier Division no longer looks a mere formality.

Jake sets Horsham youngsters on course for final Horsham U15 will face Hawks in the League Cup final after beating Denton and South Heighton (DaSH) 3-0. The semi-final was staged at a neutral ground in Seaford on a 3G pitch, the first time Horsham had played on such a surface. Horsham passed the ball well with a strong wind behind them in the first half, but Zak Comber and Jake Legrange were thwarted by DaSH’s goalkeeper. The second half started with Horsham pushing forward and it was not long before Ian Meadows’ side broke the deadlock. Tom Frankland pushed down the right and put in a delightful ball which worked its way through to Legrange to hammer home. Man of the match Tom Frankland doubled Horsham’s lead, getting

reward for all his hard work by finishing a good move, and Connor Messenger made it 3-0 with a poacher’s goal. The final may be played on March 20, but this depends on the weather and league fixtures.

Felpham Colts edged out Horsham U14 3-2 in blustery conditions on the south coast. Horsham forced a series of early corners and Jordi Walser headed home a flag kick by Zack ConniffBroome to put the visitors in front, but the young Hornets were 3-1 down by the break. Horsham did have a chance to pull a goal back before half time, but Callum Nash’s shot was saved. The second half saw a transformed Horsham camped in the hosts’ half for long spells.

Nash fired wide after being put through by Ross Williams, the hardworking Will Kerr saw several shots blocked or charged down and Harry Masih just failed to get onto a ball from fit-again Joe Petchey. Horsham cut the deficit when another good run and pass by man of the match Kerr found Alex Moore, who finished neatly. Further pressure on the home side ensued, with a string of corners and goalmouth scrambles, but the ball would not run for Horsham. Andrew Roberts produced several good runs down the left, firing in some good crosses that the Felpham defence somehow cleared as they stood firm under a barrage of attacks. Horsham U13 won 4-2 at Rustington Otters in the Hornets’ first league

match for three months. Horsham soon fell behind, but they levelled when Ali Kerr’s persistence and determination allowed Nick Bristow to set up Finn Bigg. It was still 1-1 at half time thanks to a saving tackle by Tom Summerfield. George Palmer broke through to tuck the ball home at his second attempt after his initial shot was parried, but Horsham had to step up a gear after a cross-shot made it 2-2. Jack Reeves and Palmer forced saves before the latter turned provider with a corner, crashed in by Hugo Cowan’s head. Bigg’s shot went agonisingly wide before the Hornets put the result beyond doubt through a cross-shot by Lewis Reeves. Broadbridge Heath U18 defeated

Horsham U18 2-1 at Southwater Leisure Centre in the semi-final of the Sussex County FA Dennis Probee Cup. Michael Woods twice drilled crosses across the face of Horsham’s goal, but on both occasions Heath’s forwards could not get a vital touch. Oli Moore was brought down for a penalty, which Jack Petersen blasted home, and Michael Woods celebrated with a back flip after making it 2-0 with a strike from outside the area. Sub George Hall scored with his first touch, a header, but Heath held out to book a place in the final against Burgess Hill Town on March 10. Horsham U18, who play their home matches under lights at Three Bridges FC, are looking to strengthen their squad. Contact Ivan at ivan. raby@btinternet.com or Annie on 07800 922442.
