WINTER SAFETY CHECK You and who’s army? The Blue Flash Music Trust and other Town Hall campaigners said the ‘battle is half won’ after Bill’s Produce announced they had pulled plans to open a restaurant at the historic site. The popular cafe and produce store had become frustrated with the delays and

expense incurred primarily because of the determined stance of Blue Flash. Horsham District Council has expressed huge disappointment at Bill’s announcement. They had seen Bill’s Produce, with some justification, as the ideal tenant for the site. Now they must pursue other avenues.

But what will happen now? The council will set about finding another restaurant to deal with, while the Blue Flash continue to fight for the Town Hall to be used as a community hall. Both sides have understandable intentions, but are poles apart. A compromise looks less likely than ever, and

while the campaigners may claim a moral victory, have they- with their disruptive tactics - inadvertently damaged our chances of securing a decent alternative location for community groups to use? One battle may be over, but another is surely just around the corner... See Pages 2-3 for more

It was a big idea that would lead to a big debate and, ultimately, a big decision. But Bill’s Produce has backed out of its ambition to set up shop at Horsham’s historic Town Hall, seemingly just as the debate stage was coming to the end of its exhaustive, costly and divisive run. There’s a sense of crushing disappointment at Horsham District Council. It would seem that bringing Bill’s in to town was seen by some of the leading council officers as being a huge boost to the regeneration of ‘The Quarter’. Their motive would seem to be only partly inspired by money. They had viewed Bill’s Produce as the perfect tenant for the site, so much so that another, higher offer was rejected in favour of Bill’s. But speaking at the end of last week, Bill Collison of

Bill's Café and Produce Store said: “Regrettably we have had to withdraw from this transaction due to the substantial delays in progressing the planning. “During this period we have been

seeking alternative sites to open. “We have since found alternative sites that we have committed to and are unable to proceed with the Town Hall

in addition to these. “It is frustrating that the delays caused by a few people have gone on for so long and that much time, effort and resources have been expended by both sides. “The Town Hall will make a great restaurant site and I wish Horsham District Council all the best for its future and look forward to seeing it open. “I'm sure that its conversion to a restaurant will create a focal point in the square that will greatly add to the amenities of the area and benefit the community.” The ‘few people’ mentioned, who have caused these delays are primarily from the Blue Flash Music Trust. They have campaigned against the project in favour of a community and folk arts centre at the Old Town Hall.

the resident | Friday 12 November 2010 Continued from Page 2 Throughout they have maintained that they have overwhelming public support - even yesterday this belief was unwavering. However, comments on the Horsham Facebook page would suggest that many of the town’s people would have welcomed Bill’s at the Town Hall. Certainly the Blue Flash’s intentions were well meaning, but their increasingly



cil’s plans, it’s unclear what will happen next. But we wouldn’t bet on the council’s next move to involve bowing down to the demands of the Blue Flash Music Trust! Quite the opposite in fact, they’ve vowed to find another quality restaurant for the site... A Spokesman for the Trust said: "Following the publication of the superior Gondola offer, Bill's Produce obviously had a moral choice to match the £72,500 per annum and other terms. It appears that Bill's was not prepared to do this, particularly given the continued strength of feeling amongst Horsham people for community use. “We believe this to be an honourable stance by Bill's and wish them well. I am also convinced the townspeople would welcome them with open arms to any of the many

Cabinet took the final fateful restaurant decision in February 2009. “I believe it is time for the Council to finally instruct the Cabinet to "call it a day". We look forward to a renewed offer of negotiations from HDC with a view to creating a major tourist asset for Horsham at the site of the Old Town Hall." Cllr Robert Nye, Leader of Horsham District Council, said: “This news is a huge disappointment, especially as we have only recently had confirmation from the Judicial Review that the Council acted correctly in its dealings in relation to the Town Hall. “Having said that, the rationale of the business case is still as strong as before. “Add to this the success of adjoining East Street and its many and varied gastronomic offerings, and I am confident

‘I AM CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL SECURE AN ALTERNATIVE QUALITY RESTAURANT’ forceful campaign is unlikely to have done them any favours in securing a folk arts centre. And it’s even more unlikely that the Trust will be getting a Christmas card from Horsham District Council next month. Having quashed the coun-

than a dozen market stalls on a Saturday and Thursday, including a butcher, baker, green grocers, and stalls selling tools, shoes, toys, framed pictures and handbags.

Chloe Seabrook has run a stall at the market for 11 years. She said: “Travelodge doesn’t want its customers to see the roofs of the market stalls. But we’re not talking South Lodge here - this is a £20 a night hotel! “If we get rid of the market surely it means we’re not a market town? “This is a big shock to the traders, as for many it’s their livelihood. They have to find an alternative town. A lot of customers, traders and other businesses are upset about it. Apache (fashion store) believe a lot of their trade is generated from the market on Saturdays.” A spokesperson for Horsham District Council said: “The location and quality of Horsham's markets is regularly under review because the Council, together with local businesses, wants to ensure that all of the town's markets add positively to the experience of the town amongst shoppers and other visitors. “Whilst the Council is not obliged or contracted to have market traders in the town, much positive feedback is re-

ceived about those market stalls that offer high quality and unusual items for sale, with customers visiting Horsham as a result. “The Council has been in consultation with the market's operator in West Street

Advice from the expert



A petition has been launched to save the West Street market, which is under threat because of the new Travelodge. Stores such as Sainbury’s and Wilkinsons have petition sheets, as well as a number of smaller shops and independents, while many people on the Horsham Facebook page have expressed disappointment at the news. Horsham District Council had planned for the market to end in the next few weeks, before the opening of the new hotel, but this will now be partly delayed by allowing stalls to remain in Worthing Road up to Christmas.

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.

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. Estate planning per se can be really dull but knowing that the time spent will save the next generation considerable amounts of IHT, leaving them with more of the family wealth to enjoy, should put a smile on their faces.

Real passion behind Kiss REVIEW Kiss Me Kate Capitol Theatre Another op’nin’ of another show then for Horsham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society. This time around it is Kiss Me Kate, with a five night run at the Capitol theatre kicking off in front of a healthy, loyal audience on Tuesday night. Cole Porter’s play, a huge Broadway hit, is set in Baltimore and adopts a playwithin-a-play plot, with actors performing a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. But it gets complicated as each of the four main cast members' on-stage performance is complicated by what is happening in his or her offstage life. From the famous opening number of HAODS’ take on Kiss Me Kate, it was apparent that, as always, the cast would certainly look the part. With more than 50 years of costumes hanging on tightly

squeezed racks and countless boxes of props to choose from at their Broadbridge Heath base, in a room that gives some idea of what the wardrobe room might look like if Lady Gaga and Madonna ever tour together, producing a colourful show was never likely to be an issue. But would this be a case of style over substance? After all, planning hasn’t gone too smoothly this time around. A lead actor coming in from outside of the group that could not always be at rehearsals and a lead actress that - ten days before opening night - had lost her voice. One female cast member even had to fill in as a boy at late notice, although with the Shakespearian theme of Kiss Me Kate, that didn’t really matter. As it transpired, Lee Power (playing Fred Graham/ Pertruchio) and Debby Field (Lili Vanessi/Katherine or Kate) were the two standout performers of the night. Lee, as actor and director Fred Graham, as well at Pertruchio, the man that must ‘tame the shrew’ in the touring production of the play set

within the play, was charismatic, humorous, and was the dominant stage presence. He was also the standout vocal performer, although Debby too did a fine job, showing no signs of her re-

leads. Much the same could be said of Gus Fryatt (as Bill Calhoun/ Lucentio) and Katy Kinsella (Lois/Bianca). We suspect - but may be wrong that with the lack of young

cent sore throat. As Kate, she was a ‘shrew’ personified, giving a feisty, spirited performance, showing real attitude during numbers such as ‘I Hate Men’. A bit of me thinks she meant it! However, while both performed well individually, there was sadly a lack of chemistry between the two

men looking to tread the boards locally, Gus may find himself as a strong candidate for any roles relating to any male part aged between 15 and 30! As in previous shows, Gus demonstrated his growing vocal and acting talent, even if he did look a little too young when partnered with his

scene-stealing on-stage partner Katy Kinsella as Lois/ Bianca. The long-legged Katy was both sassy and saucy and showed a natural flair for comic timing. Other noteworthy performances came from Kim Fenwick, who did justice to one of the show’s stand-out numbers, ‘Too Darn Hot’, and Tim Shepherd, who enjoyed himself as a gangster alongside Chris Shanks. It wasn’t the most polished performance; a few of the dance routines needed a little more work as there was a little disorganisation amongst the ranks, and the sets perhaps didn’t do enough to help the occasionally lost audience to differentiate between what was real and what was ‘the play’. I also felt

the play was lacking much of the wit of some previous HAODS productions, with the laughs really few and far between. But there are more positives than negatives. As with all HAODS shows, you know there are two things that, whatever happens, won’t let you down. One is costumes, and the other is the musical score. Once again the ever-smiling Brian Steel and his band performed admirably, seemingly even compensating for those short delays for the occasional forgotten line. With only a few empty seats, HAODS have shown they are still as popular as ever, and Kiss Me Kate has done nothing to tarnish their fine reputation.

Luckiest Loser played Bowling for Soup hits, The Allisons stepped into The Pixies’ boots and The Daly Prophets played, well, whatever they fancied (pics: Victoria Thompson)

Korn band sound sweet Anyone that has attended the Battle of the Bands nights (the heats or the final) will know that Horsham has an abundance of rock acts. Anything else, such as Phrase Mob or Retrospect, sounds almost novelty, such is the dominance of guitar based music locally. This was typified by the covers section of the Horsham Battle of the Bands at the Holbrook Club on Sunday night. Four of the five bands exclusively played hits by their favourite bands - namely Korn, Pearl Jam, The Pixies, and Bowling for Soup. A sixth band, that never showed, were called Nirvana Sound... So it was quite refreshing when youngsters The Daly Prophets came on stage and played a vibrant mix of tracks, including Livin’ La Vida Loco and Love Shack. However, the honours went to unquestionably the tightest, most efficient band of the night, Korn on the Kob. They exploded onto the stage with the first live appearance in two years from dynamic frontman Richie Owen, who once again had put together a metal supergroup and fronted a fierce cacophony of sound with his unforgettable physical presence and powerful vocals. He even made use of “the bleeper” to edit out the more colourful lyrics! The band had the most authentic sound and it was great to see guitarist David Thompson back on stage again. Next, popular local covers band “Solice” became Stone Gossard and the Wonder Bras for their take on Pearl Jam numbers. It was a brave choice - the American band themselves were always something of an acquired taste, not least for Eddie Vedder’s vocals. But frontman Brad Harper and his be-

wigged band members gave a faithful rendition, even if the crowd weren’t necessarily buying into the songs. The Allisons gave us music by The Pixies fan, but once again the young crowd, unfamiliar with the songs, found it difficult to relate to. The band perhaps didn’t help themselves by not playing the two songs most people might have recognised (Where is My Mind? and Here Comes Your Man) and they also lack a female - The Pixies bass player sang backing vocals and occasional lead vocals. But still, you can’t knock the guys for playing songs they love and trying to spread the music to new, young fans. The next band Luckiest Loser were teenagers playing their first ever gig ,which was a bit daunting given the size of the crowd but they went for it and gave a good performance and got better as they went through their set of Bowling for Soup hits, encouraged by their friends and followers. The jaunty American Pop-punk songs went down well with the young crowd, not least the catchy singalong ‘The Girl all the Bad Guys Want’. The last band, The Daly Prophets, are a talented teenage all-singing 7-piece party band featuring saxophone and male and female vocals and gave a short set of dance floor fillers which had the crowd tapping their feet and grooving in their seats to songs such as Poker Face by Lady Gaga. They were awarded third place, with Stone Gossard and the Wonder Bras finishing runners up to Korn on the Kob, who donated their £100 prize to Cancer Research.

Ben Pringle, Ian Bradley (black vest) and Danny Kirkland all boxed for Horsham on Saturday (All pics by Vic Heritage - www.vicheritage.fotopic.net)

Kirkland the Ringleader In terms of victories chalked up, Saturday won’t go down as one of the most successful nights in the history of Horsham Amateur Boxing Club. But the fight night at the Holbrook Club was again a fine example of why the club’s big events continue to prove so popular, as each fighter wearing the blue colours of Horsham gave it their all, in front of a huge and vocal crowd. While there’s little argument that it was Ian Bradley who again starred in the fight of the night, perhaps Horsham’s stand out performer was Danny Kirkland. The young fighter was a comfortable victor once again against Jack Stringer. He was quick and composed from the outset, moving fast on his feet but never losing his discipline.

He caught his opponent in the first round and delivered two great blows with his left in the third and final round to ensure victory. Bradley’s fight against B. Kudus was a bloody encounter. Bradley, owner of Horsham’s most bone-crunching handshake, was as always quick out of the blocks, having to punch upwards against his far taller opponent. Showing far more attacking intent than his rival, the Horsham fighter was well on top in the first two rounds, easily reading the slow moving Kudus’ telegrammed punches. But this windmill effect worked in the third, and the big man from the red corner had Bradley on the ropes. Whether or not the bell saved the Horsham fighter from losing to a knockout is anyone’s



guess, but certainly the visiting boxer had ended the engaging contest well on top. At that point, Horsham had lost the opening three fights. Junior fighter Harry Orsini fought well but lost out to the sprightly Ruislip fighter. Tom Hooley improved as his fight went on and was on top in the third, but lost out on points, as did Tom Sullivan. Merle Cavagnuolo was out of the blocks like a race


adopting his trademark low stance position, could not deliver the telling blows on his opponent. But like all of Horsham’s performers on the night, the effort could not be faulted. Ben Pringle, with his chequered shorts and pulled up blue socks, went out on the ring looking more like a footballer than a boxer. But there was to be no diving around, as he provided a stern test for a talented young fighter from West Tree ABC. Pringle recovered well from a quick flurry of punches from his opponent in the second, but lost out on points. The night’s final bout involved Dan Purchase, one of the club’s most popular fighters, which ensured few had gone home early. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to provide the grandstand finish he

dearly wanted, losing out to Will Brock. Cheered on by the crowd, and with little in it after the first two rounds, the Horsham boxer went for it in the final round, and it could be argued that he wanted the win the most. But he didn’t get it, losing out in a majority decision. While not the best night for the trophy cabinet, the night did highlight all that is good about the club with everyone boxing with spirit, discipline and sportsmanship. All of the boxers would like to thank club coaches Lee Coles, Ben Gumbrill and Shaun Stepney for their help and support. Another club night is set for 5th March 2011.

HSO musician plays 200-year-old violin


Horsham Symphony Orchestra are at the Capitol next week

Your Local Jeweller & Pawnbroker GOLD & SILVER WANTED New or Scrap Don’t post it Use it to get instant Cash

The Horsham Symphony Orchestra, under its principal conductor, Steve Dummer, and leader, Barry Sutton, opens their 2010-11 concert season on Saturday, 20th November at the Capitol, Horsham. The concert will feature Mendelssohn’s much loved Violin Concerto and the orchestra is delighted to welcome Rachel Ellis, guest leader of the HSO, in her inaugural performance as soloist with the orchestra. Rachel has been playing the violin since the age of nine and received her first training at the Kent Junior Music School in Maidstone. She won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where she regularly played with the RCM chamber music on tours both at home and abroad. Rachel has lived in Horsham with her family for the past 14 years and combines teaching with playing in many local musical ensembles. She has recently acquired a 200 year old violin which she will be playing in the concert. The concerto follows a performance of ‘Dances of Galanta’, by the Hungarian composer, Zoltan Kodaly (1882–1967). During the nineteenth century, army recruiters in Austria used to travel around with dancers

and musicians in tow in an attempt to enlist young men. The style of dance used, the ‘Verbunken’, was the basis of this orchestral suite, which was first performed in 1933. After the interval, the orchestra will perform Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony, more commonly known as the ‘Eroica’ Symphony. This magnificent work of art has become so well-known and embraced by the listening public that it hard to believe quite how radical this music was at the time it was composed (1803). Beethoven tore through musical convention to produce a towering work of genius that is filled with the full gamut of emotions, ranging from despair and sorrow through to affirmation and celebration of the human spirit. The concert will commence at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £12, £10 for concessions over 60 and £5 for under 18s. Tickets can be purchased in advance from The Capitol Box Office on 01403 750220 or online at www.thecapitolhorsham.com.

Tickets are also available from the HSO Ticket Secretary on 01403 891356. Further information can be found on the HSO website at www.horshamsymphony.org.uk

kitchenware. The Horsham store, formerly Scott & Sargeant, became part of Steamer Trading in 2004. Sitting proudly on East Street, it is managed by John Bowles and Assistant Manager Liz Hampton, and a team of expert sales assistants who are on hand to give product demonstrations and advice. Complete with customer coffee shop serving freshly baked cakes and sandwiches, it’s deceivingly small from the outset, but if you care to venture in you’ll find floor to ceiling shelves stocked with the ultimate in cooking utensils, crockery, appliances and paraphernalia –everything you could ever need to create your perfect kitchen or the perfect dish all under one roof. David, the original Buying Director of Habitat, and Liz, the former Home Editor of the Sunday Times, ran Steamer Trading until 2001 when their son Ben took over as Managing Director.

Working from the company HQ in Lewes, Ben explained: “I grew up in retail, surrounded by good design, as part of a family who have been retailers for many years. In fact, we can trace our shop keeping roots back to Aldgate, London, in 1870. “We have always been devoted to building and maintaining long-term relationships with our customers. If we can do something to make someone’s shopping experience really special, we’ll always try to do it.” The Steamer Trading buying team source products from all over the world, travelling extensively in search of the ultimate items and to ensure quality, the company tests everything personally before it makes it onto the

shelves. Ben said: “We’re always looking for the best in terms of design, functionality and value. If we can see something sitting in someone’s kitchen and we are fully satisfied that it meets our very strict criteria, we’ll include it in our range. “One of my all-time favourites is the Dualit toaster. I’ve had one for twenty years and my parents for over 25. They are made locally in Sussex, by a familyowned company, and have hardly changed since the original design from 1946.” Steamer Trading offers a special order service that can track down even the most obscure items to help complete your perfect kitchen, and a Wedding List service for those planning their big day.

Nice motor for a 20-year-old! Kieran Vernon from West Chiltington is one of two recipients of the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB Scholarship. After a demanding two-day evaluation process at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone, 20-year-old Kieran and fellow hopeful Benji Hetherington impressed in and out of the car against very strong opposition from the other four finalists. Created and run by Porsche Cars GB, the successful 'Carrera Cup GB Scholarship Programme' will provide £50,000 each to Vernon to use as a significant element of his budget for the 2011 Carrera Cup GB season. The six finalists, chosen by an expert panel from nearly 40 applicants, were put through a rigorous two-day evaluation process at the Porsche Experience Centre at Silverstone on 18th/19th October. The programme started with driving sessions in the

latest Porsche 911 GT3 Cup race car on the Silverstone National circuit under the expert guidance of former Carrera Cup GB champion James Sutton. Each driver had two timed stints, with the second run on new Michelin slicks as all aspects of their driving and feedback were analysed. Away from the circuit, the focus switched to media work and presentation skills, as each driver underwent interviews with the judging panel as well as television interview sessions and media training. On the second day, the candidates underwent exhaustive fitness testing at the Porsche Human Performance Centre at Silverstone, which culminated with a demanding assault course over the Experience Centre tracks. Kieran’s motor sport career began in karting, and between 2004 and 2007 he won a number of championships. He finished runner-up in the 2007 Ginetta Junior Champi-

onship and finished second in the 2008 Ginetta G20 Championship. In 2009, Kieran raced to second place in the Scholarship Cup of the British Formula Ford Championship, and was a race winner in Formula Palmer Audi in 2010. “Winning the Carrera Cup Scholarship is a huge boost to my career,” commented Kieran. “I can't say how happy I am now. It's a fantastic opportunity and I want to say a big thank you to everyone at Porsche for making this happen. I'm so keen to get out on track. I'm so excited and I can't wait for the start of next season." Over the year ahead, the two Scholars will receive an extensive fitness programme managed by the Porsche Human Performance team, plus branded race suits and a new Arai GP6S helmet. The 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup GB will begin in April next year.

At La Source you will find the very best of European contemporary furniture and accessories.

We also offer a free home consultation.

History comes to life

Tales from the Great War came alive for Forest Pupils this week when local amateur historian Gary Cooper visited the school to speak to pupils about his book – Horsham’s Hero’s of the Great War 1914-19. After more than 6 years of investigation and research Mr Cooper has gathered together the personal stories of the 359 casualties commemorated on the town’s memorial. This often very poignant insight into the lives of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country brought the work the pupils have been doing in the classroom to life. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy should contact Gary Cooper at Friends of Horsham Museum, c/o 3 Hills Manor, Guildford Road, Horsham, RH12 1LZ or email CoopG709@aol.com

Stars: Robert Downey jr, Joel William Gonzales Shows: 9th-18th Nov

One year in the making It is always the tradition at the end of the panto that the following year’s 'subject' is announced. Yes, that's how far in advance we have to plan for the annual Christmas show here at The Capitol! Last year’s star of Cinderella Justin Fletcher announced that Aladdin would be this year's pantomime, and so the journey begins to write a script, to engage the company, to find a musical director, to source a set and costumes, to design the promotional material. This will be our 6th 'in house' Christmas production, our first being Faith Brown in Cinderella, then Sonia in Jack and The Beanstalk, Todd Carty in Dick Whittington, Sarah Jane Honeywell and Mark Curry in Peter Pan, Justin Fletcher in Cinderella and now Anna Williamson in Aladdin. I have known Anna for a few years now. We have kept

in touch since I offered panto five years ago and due to her TV commitments and other contracts I have been unable to get her here in Horsham till now. And true as her word she said she would play here and this year is our year. Anna is a great pantomime performer and eventually we welcomed her to The Capitol in the summer to see where she will be spending her Christmas. Anna had done her homework in terms of asking mates in the business about The Capitol - all came back with positive feedback! I had already decided that I would have a set for the show from the same suppliers as last year, and I did get to see it in Hertfordshire before the panto that it was being used for had finished. I hope that you will like it! So I have a set and a storyboard of what scenes, so down to the writing -not an

Michael Gattrell General Manager, The Capitol easy task as I had not written this one before. But having seen many pantomimes over the years I knew the structure and what characters I would be including so pen to paper, well actually fingers on keyboard, and started to write. By the end of July I had a script that I thought was worth a read by some of my colleagues, just to gauge their reaction - a thumbs up decision. Then I met Anna in London and went through it with her

so she was happy what she was going to be doing. This is not a contractual requirement but merely a courtesy one and we have always treated the 'top of the bill' names with this respect. But I need to cast the show! I had already made a few calls earlier in the year to some of the cast from last year’s Cinderella pantomime. Actors seem to love working here at The Capitol and it does become home for 5 weeks. In fact, it’s like one big family. So why not have some

of the actors back? This year we see the return of Nic and Tom who were Ugly Sisters in Cinderella to play Widow Twankey and The Emperor. Amanda Sim, who waved her magic wand last year as The Fairy, will be spinning her magic as the Slave of The Ring, Danielle, who has choreographed the last three shows, agreed to return and along with her husband Rhys who will be playing the Chinese Policeman. So what's left to do? Well lots really. Look at the lighting design, sound effects, props and, oh yes, music. I put a call out for a musical director and am very fortunate to have found a great musician, John Cornford, who is based in East Sussex. He came for a meeting and we went through the script, sharing ideas, and I gave him a day or two to think about whether he wanted to come to Horsham. The next day, sure enough, an email came through saying

'Yes I'd love to work with you and play The Capitol'. With this all in place I just need it to come together. In two week’s time the set and costumes arrive and for the next 10 days from the 29th November Aladdin will be directed, choreographed and musically put together. It’s not an easy task but I think after these few years of directing it is becoming easier. We can't wait, and I know when we had the recent press call the cast were anxious to receive their scripts and start learning. All the staff are involved in some way if not selling tickets, by flying scenery, by putting up posters to moving scenery. So why not come along to see the finished production? We officially open on the10th December and run until 3rd January 2011. It will be fun! Oh yes it will!

Let the battle commence Welcome again to our feature where we help you to overcome the obstacles of modern life whilst retaining a sense of fun! This week we officially start our countdown to Christmas which for many of us creates an endless tick list punctuated by frantic bursts of shopping, cooking, wrapping, decorating, writing cards, making costumes for school plays, telephoning relatives, organising social calendars... and the list goes on! STOP! There are easier ways to claw back time and really enjoy the lead up to the festive season without wearing your pants over your tights - oh no, sorry, that was Superman and where is he when you need him? Superwoman wore a much more restrictive and uncomfortable costume which ensured she had a perfect cleavage at all times even when performing super human feats! Sound familiar? That touches on a whole new list - how to create the perfect look for Christmas and we can help you with that too! Funnily enough, I discovered a very old copy of ‘Superwoman’ by Shirley Conran last week and thought I would share a few tips with you. For those of you too young to remember, Shirley Conran espoused the philosophy that modern

Take charge and sort out the stress! With the busy-ness of modern day-to-day life, running a home and raising a family, while holding down a fulltime job, it’s no surprise that ‘having no time’ and feeling completely stressed is near the top of most people’s fed-up list. I’ve been watching a documentary on BBC TV for the past 3 weeks, ‘The Big Silence’. The programme follows the lives of five people attempting to find a better way of managing their lives, beginning with their meeting at local Worth Abbey. The programme starts by saying “There seems to be an epidemic of being busy, people’s lives are so full of busyness and noise, they are

unable to stop and listen, see things in greater clarity.” I found the programme fascinating, seeing the challenges faced by people trying to find a way to slow down, to think about what they are doing, and why they are doing it, and to look at their quality of life. What always interests me is what happens after a retreat, once people go home and back to their day to day lives, whether they can actually maintain the new skills they have learnt, and incorporate these into their lives. More often than not they quickly revert back to their well-worn path of being constantly on the go. I have helped many clients work on exactly

this. For lasting change to happen, people need to look at the practicalities of their lives, understanding what is important to them and designing (or redesigning!) their lives to work for them. Becoming the Ringmaster of their own circus, rather than having the circus animals running rings around them! I worked in the corporate world for 20 years before taking the bull by the horns and working out what I really wanted to do, and retraining and setting up my own business. Often people find they have somehow ended up where they are without having given much thought to what they really want. Or perhaps they

got on the Success Ladder, and poured all their time and energy into their career, and now find that their lives are out of balance, or they want something different, more fulfilling perhaps. If you’d like to sort your life out, get in touch with me to arrange a no-obligation chat, by calling 01403-793790 or emailing me at info@ cathrynhindle.com. You may find yourself saying, as most of my clients do, ‘why on earth didn’t I do this sooner!?’ Cathryn Hindle Write in to: Health & Lifestyle, The Resident, 26 North Street, Horsham, RH12 1RQ or email julia.martin@ the-resident.co.uk

woman can have it all - career, children, beautiful home, etc and her book of household management was a best seller in the seventies. The fact that she was married to the multi millionaire Sir Terence Conran, surely was the best known aid to household management! However, she does offer some sage advice and one of my favourites is “The secret to ironing is to avoid it“ and her motto was “life is too short to stuff a mushroom”. But at this time of year, the best advice is “Never rely on your memory. Keep a notebook in your handbag and do not let anybody get at it”. If you follow this advice, you can jot down any interesting tips and contacts from this page to help in the run up to your Christmas. So if you have your pen ready, read the useful guide by Susannah Brady from Offload Business Resources on the organisation of time to optimise results in your Christmas preparations. Kall Kwik also offer some vital time saving options with their Fed ex service which sends and tracks parcels worldwide and can get a gift to relatives in the USA the next day! They also offer some seasonal help with their personalised Christmas cards, menus and invitations. For beautiful, quality and original clothing made form pure silk, wool, cotton or

bamboo, seek out “After Lily” on East Street which is an offshoot of a very successful London venture. For the perfect gift which captures a special moment in time, discover Andrea Sarlo photography which offers vouchers for portraits and they are packaged in a delightful way with gift bags and a picture frame so offer a tangible and ready wrapped gift which will create memories forever. The Retreat at Slinfold Golf and Country Club offer a range of lovely vouchers for their luxury spa days and treatments too. In a rapidly materialisic world, a gift of an experience can be very welcome and it only takes a phone call to arrange so saves you time too! On a lighter note, our tip of the week to all you budding Supermen out there, is to wear your tights under your trousers as we girls have known for years, that this can really help keep the cold out and, if you want to wear your pants over them, so much the better! We need more Supermen! Enjoy!

Beat those winter blues!

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese art which explores the use of the five elements; fire, earth, water, wood and metal in a space. As the nights get longer and darker with cold grey days, spare a thought for your elderly relatives and neighbours who may struggle more in the Winter. Janine Lowe says ”The East area of the home is an ideal place to put a rogues gallery of older relatives and friends to help increase the energy flow to them.

Conversely we think of red as the ideal warming colour but in this area, it should be avoided and you should use blues and greens particularly if you want to renew the romantic energy in a relationship.” This area is also associated with wood so wood carvings such as the three wise monkeys would fit in well especially as three is the number linked to the area. Plants and greenery can also thrive and serve to increase the energy flow too.

If you would like to find out more about the power of decluttering and more useful tips, go to Janine’s blog at www.janinelowe.co.uk or contact Janine on 01903 787888.

London’s Lily blooms in East Street Have you discovered the hidden gem in East street yet? You may have walked past the small shop “After Lily” and been mildly intrigued, paricularly by the antique bicycles which were outside, and not realised what a treat was awaiting you inside. The shop is a branch of a higly successful London shop which neighbours the Cath Kidston store in Fulham. In fact “After Lily” now has

the same designer as Cath Kidston but the concept is very different. The intention is to give a palette of subtle colours, mixed with solid basics to create a way to dress in your own individual style. Caroline, the owner, specialises in sourcing only high quality silk, wool, and cotton clothing which is designed to be a long term investment and she fervently believes in fair trade. This is a very tactile place

and once you feel the softness of the bamboo and cotton tops and the lightness and fluidity of the silk dresses you will realise that these are garments you will want to wear again and again. The philosphy is that the garments will last and this is backed up by a highly unusual but effective ‘ trading in’ policy which means that when buying a new piece, you can trade in a used piece which is valued and offset against the

new purchase. This is very eco friendly as these are then recycled for second hand sales. The shop also sources original French pieces of furniture and home ware so you can also create an environment which reflects your own individual essence. So pop in and you will be made very welcome.

We face a challenge Guy Leonard & Company comment on the property market

There are few people who are unaware of the current press headlines; mortgage lending is at a six month low; harsh economic measures are ahead and, despite low interest rates and helpful noises from the IMF that the British economy is looking better, few are deceived into thinking that the next twelve months or so won’t be a challenge for most of us. During the Autumn of 2008 the letting market was flooded with properties, frustrated sellers who became reluctant landlords. This was a benefit for tenants who unusually had a huge selection of proper-

ties to choose from which gave them the option to negotiate on the rent they offered. We saw quite a dramatic fall in rents achieved during that time. This certainly changed through 2009 and the early part of 2010 – once again we had far more waiting tenants than properties and competition was rife pushing prices back up again. Many of the properties that were bought to the letting market because they didn’t sell have now been sold and the volume of stock has reduced. As Autumn 2010 progresses we are seeing yet another change. The market is

not flooded with properties and we are actively seeking new landlords. However, whilst there is a steady flow of waiting tenants they are looking for good quality properties at realistic rents. We strongly recommend that a landlord be flexible; if someone wants to take a property and they appear to be ideal but need some white goods supplied perhaps it is worth considering this. Is it worth losing a months’ rent for the sake of buying a fridge? Likewise some landlords prefer to stipulate that they do not accept pets at their property. Again if a tenant is wishing to take the property and has, perhaps, one small dog for which they are happy to lodge a higher deposit,

is it not worth considering this? In a tough market flexibility can make all the difference to the length of time it will take to find a tenant. At Guy Leonard & Company it has been part of our service for many years to offer a rent guarantee product to our landlords. This is part of the reference process that we go through with any new tenant. Over the last few years of economic turmoil we have felt this to be of great reassurance to ourselves and our landlords as it protects not only for non payment of rent but also legal expenses to gain possession of the property.

If you would like any further information contact Angie Blunden or Philip Reynolds on 01903 744166 or Karen Loy on 01403 246750.

Rural problems An expert has claimed young Brits are struggling to buy homes in rural towns and villages, due to others purchasing second homes. There is a real problem in some parts of the UK, with people unable to buy homes in villages where they grew up. This is the view of Fiona Howie, head of planning at Campaign to Protect Rural England, who said the issue of second home ownership in such communities is preventing individuals from getting on the property ladder.

"We would urge councils where it is a problem to look at the level of council tax that they charge. Lots only charge 15 per cent as standard council tax to second home owners," she noted. Ms Howie explained local authorities have the power to request more cash and this should be done in areas where high levels of second abodes are situated. Plans to create affordable housing are also required and the dwellings should be allocated to local people, she remarked.

Putting up guests at festive season? Katrina Smith

I don't like to mention the C word, but Christmas is coming, and with Christmas comes the influx of guests. But do you have anywhere to house them? Great if you have an inviting guest bedroom, but not so good if you are short on space. It may be that your study or one of the children's rooms has to take the strain. However your guests still need to feel welcome. What has made your stay with friends or family that little bit more inviting? First of all tidy up the room your guests are going to stay in. They don't want to be faced with your overflowing “in tray” or the kids toys everywhere. Add a lovely vase of flowers to brighten up the room. Ensure there are towels at your guest’s disposal, and clean,

fresh coordinated bed linen will add the finishing touch. If you have a dedicated guest bedroom make sure that there is room for guests to hang clothes. I have to confess that my spare bedroom very often becomes the dumping ground for all sorts of paraphernalia. But I do de-clutter prior to guests arriving. I ensure the bed linen is

fresh and clean, and that fresh towels are left at the end of the bed ready for my guest’s arrival. Although the wardrobe very often has the children's old clothes in, this is always emptied before people arrive, so that they have somewhere to place their clothes. I like to leave an extra blanket out in case my guests get a little cold and I also ensure that

the key to the bedroom window is available in case they get too hot. You can never be certain as to whether people will like their bedroom hot or cold. I also think a bedside table with a lamp is required. I personally hate having to get up to switch the light on or off in the middle of the night. It can be a bit embarrassing waking everyone up in the small hours when you have fallen over the foot of the bed on your way to the toilet in the dark!. For the finishing touches you might like to consider some toiletries and a glass and bottle of water. I also make sure that there are some magazines to hand for my guests to read. Remember those small touches can make all the difference. For further information contact Katrina at True Colours Interiors on 01403 263509 or see www.truecoloursinteriors.co.uk

Drivers can now have the booming voice of Brian Blessed as their personal map reader. After a Facebook campaign attracted 25,000 supporters, the king-sized Yorkshireman agreed to record driving instructions in his distinctive stentorian tones - and the Brian Blessed sat nav voice was released by TomTom last week.

Rare and revered 911 scoops classic honour The £300,000 Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 has been crowned the greatest ever driver’s car by Classic & Sports Car magazine. It comes after a thrilling finale in which a pair of British built ten-grand tiddlers came within a whisker of snatching the title. The world’s best-selling classic car magazine asked more than 100 leading lights in the classic car world, from Sir Stirling Moss to Lord March, to list the three cars they had driven that had given them the biggest thrills and the most special memories. Classic & Sports Car columnist, Le Mans ace and TV presenter Alain de Cadenet then assessed the five most popular choices at the famous Millbrook Proving Ground to make a final judgement of the most rewarding road car ever. Though the Porsche took the title just ahead of the £2million, 238mph, 627bhp McLaren F1 and the £5million-plus pre-war Alfa Romeo 8C-2300, the affordable Lotus Elan Sprint and the original Mini Cooper ‘S’ – with all of 76bhp and a sub-100mph top speed – were only fractionally behind in the final showdown. Classic & Sports Car Editor Alastair Clements said: “For me the most exciting thing about our Top 5 was not the presence of some of the most exclusive and expensive cars ever made, but the inclusion of two that just

supposedly closed due to snow. Not in the 205 it wasn’t, I didn’t see another car after Ely.” Produced in association with private bank EFG, the results of the exclusive poll and test are presented in a special 36-page supplement free with the December 2010 issue of Classic & Sports Car, on sale now

The Alfa 8C-2300

The Top 25 about any enthusiast can go out and buy today.” James Elliott, Group Editor of Classic & Sports Car, added: “It’s another great result for the Mini. “This epitome of the Swinging ’60s may not have won outright this time around, but owners and fans can still be very proud of the sort of company it keeps. “With three out of the Top 5 to its name and five out of the Top 10, Britain can rightly revel in its glorious motoring past.” Bbuilt for just a year from 1972, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 Lightweight (RS stands for Renn Sport) was made in very small numbers (217) and could achieve a top speed of 152mph. Through its rarity and searing performance, it has become the

most desirable of all the myriad 911 variants and prices have rocketed in recent years. The monocoque-bodied car was powered by a 2687cc flat-six engine, had 210bhp and could reach 60mph in 6.8 seconds. Alain de Cadenet said: “The RS is just the most perfect thing to drive and I can see why there’s such a frenzy for them now… It’s just the most inspiring, timeless driver’s car.” Many famous names picked their facourite for the competition. Martin Brundle said of the Peugeot 205 GTI: “Just the right amount of power, grip, and drivability in all road conditions. “I remember travelling home one night after an F1 test at the Nürburgring and Norfolk was

Timely turnaround as Hornets get lucky

Pics: John Lines

For the latest Horsham FC news visit www.hornetsreview.co.uk

On Saturday evening, things were looking gloomy for Horsham Football Club. Rooted to the bottom of the Ryman Premier League, they had played poorly and deservedly lost 4-0 away to Lowestoft. But a little bit of luck - in the shape of a goalkeeping error on Tuesday night - could have turned the season around for the Hornets. At worst, it’s put them out of the bottom two for the first time in a month. Two late goals earned Horsham a crucial victory at Tooting on Tuesday evening to move them out of the bottom two for the first time in a month. After an uninspiring first half it was the hosts who took the lead when Tyrone Sealey converted Barry Stevens' 63rd minute pass and it looked as though Horsham were set to fall to their 9th defeat of the season until Gary Charman crashed home a thumping header as the match entered injury time. Anthony Storey was then dismissed after picking up his sec-

ond caution of the night but the Hornets pushed forward and were rewarded when Tooting 'keeper Jamie Butler punched the ball into his own net to hand the visitors all three points. On Saturday afternoon, Horsham fell to a 4-0 defeat at Lowestoft Town. Gary Charman spurned a couple of early chances to give the Hornets the lead but two goals in 5 minutes, from Danny Bloomfield and Adrian Forbes, put the hosts in the driving seat and they added another goal before halftime when Horsham failed to deal with a cross and Joe Francis netted at the far post. The visitors made a disastrous start to the second half, falling further behind just 30 seconds after the restart when Stuart Ainsley shrugged off several challenges to score. U18s captain Joss Knowles came on for his first team debut, replacing Ryan Woodford, but Bloomfield almost made it 5 when his shot hit the post.

Forest Badminton Club were shocked in 2008 when Sheila Howell died suddenly. To remember a dedicated member, friend (and mixed captain), the Sheila Howell Trophy was inaugurated. This year's mixed handicap tournament saw 34 club members take part. It proved to be highly competitive, made more intense given that handicaps were not disclosed until completion of the group stages.

Victoria Welsby, partnering Ian Knight, and Sarah Lewis with Paul Moss, progressed to the final with the latter triumphing in a keenly contested match. Sarah and Paul are pictured with the Sheila Howell Trophy.

Report; Jamie Tullett Pics: Victoria Thompson

Sparrows’ star Cadette Horsham Sparrows Girls U12’s recorded a 3-0 victory over table topping Littlehampton Devils thanks to a superb hat trick from Mia Cadette. The result meant Sparrows overtook their rivals at the top of the Sussex County Girls Mini-Soccer league. Sparrows started the strongest, with Cadette getting her first chance early in the half when a low corner reached her in the box, only a bobble taking it away from her and saving Littlehampton. The away side then had an opportunity to take the lead when Eleanor Kill squared the ball for Skye Austin whose shot narrowly missed the goal. Sparrows’ impressive Emily Burnie was almost sent through to shoot at Abigail Braim in the Littlehampton goal only for Megan Fullard to stop that attack. She singlehandedly prevented a further series of Sparrows pressure by Léah Cadette from resulting in a goal for the home team. Molly Beadle then set Léah past the defence only for Littlehampton captain Ellen Grant to save the day for her side. Play was then stopped as a loose ball hit a Sparrows defender in the face who was forced to leave the pitch with a nose bleed, but soon after the break the home team struck their first goal. Léah was the orchestrator, taking the ball from her own box all the way to the opposi-

tion penalty area, and after successive saves from Braim, her sister Mia finally found the corner of the net. Sparrows continued to press but Littlehampton held them to the one goal lead going into half time. Substitute Sarah Cannons had the next chance for Sparrows after the break only for Skye Austin who was tracking back to thwart the attempt on goal. However, Sparrows’ pressure soon paid off, the second of two corners from Léah was allowed to run to Mia who poked the ball past Braim to double the lead. Littlehampton gained possession after the goal and Skye played in Stacie Holmes to test Bethany Beadle in the Sparrows goal, who smartly turned the shot around the post. But it didn’t last, and Sparrows retrieved the ball and mounted succeeding attacks, with Mia trying desperately to get her hat trick. Her efforts seemed in vain, however with only a few minutes to go, the ball fell to her from another of her sister’s corners and she scooped the ball past Braim to joyous applause from the Sparrows support. Littlehampton had no time to react and Sparrows recorded their sixth win of the season to race to the top of the league. Under 11 Heron Way Cup Chesworth Rovers Youth lost their second encounter with Dorking Saints 6-2 at Forest School on Saturday, writes

Freddie Underwood. Chesworth started the better side with the majority of possession and territory, but were caught on the counter by a neat one on one finish. Rovers equalised when Jake Hull poked the ball into the roof of the net in a goalmouth scramble. Dorking showed why they beat Chesworth in the earlier league encounter with some strong attacking play resulting in three more goals. James Christer had the chance to pull one back from the spot, but his effort was

saved. However, Jake Hull got hold of the rebound at an angle and his shot was pushed into the path of substitute Freddie Underwood who scored his first goal for the club. Keeper Joe Cross denied Dorking on several occasions but the Saints did add two more goals, making it 6-2. Under 13s SC Youth Cup Horsham Youth Under 13s dominated their County Cup round three match at Three Bridges FC, running out 9-0 winners.

Horsham ‘keeper Joe Moss made a good early save, before Finn Bigg beat his man and put in a great cross to Nik Bristow to open the scoring. Bristow calmly netted his second after only 6 minutes, then combined with James Tilley, with Tilley firing in with a left foot drive. Bristow’s hat-trick then followed following another Bigg cross. In the 21st minute Eddie Davies drove forward, finding the net with a super strike in the far corner. Horsham’s sixth followed when Bigg latched onto a long through ball and the Three Bridges ‘keeper rushed out of his area using his head to briefly clear, but only as far as Jack Reeves who drove his shot low and hard into the net. The fresh legs of Dan Cusdin and George Matthews were linking well but it was Jack Reeves who set up Bristow and his looped flick found Hugo Cowan who ran in to head home. A lovely curling free kick to the far post from Reeves fell invitingly for Bristow to take his fourth, before Cusdin fired another.

Under 13s Girls Football Horsham Sparrows Girls versus Worthing Town Girls proved an evenly matched encounter on Sunday morning. The final score was 1–1, with Lucy Derham’s 30 yard shot that chipped the highlight for Sparrows. Under 14 Arun & Chichester YL

Horsham were not at their best, but managed to come away from Worthing United with a win. After just two minutes Ross Williams drove home a right foot shot after an Andrew Roberts cross was allowed to travel a long way. It was 2-0 after five minutes, a long throw from Jordan Walser was not dealt with and Roberts sent a looping header over the stranded ‘keeper. The young Hornets then seemed to go to sleep and Worthing created several chances before pulling a goal back. The visitors finally extended there lead on the half hour mark when a Zack Conniff-Broome free kick from the right hand side of the penalty area found an unmarked Walser, who comfortably headed home. Conniff-Broome struck a penalty wide in a scrappy second half, but it ended well when a delightful through ball by Roberts found Callum Nash who chipped in. Under 14s friendly A friendly match turned into a competitive clash when Broadbridge Heath encountered the Lower Beeding Lions who were not going to be tamed, writes Sam Norgate. A few minutes into the game, Callum Nash scored the opening goal, but Heath equalised 20 minutes later.

Horsham defeat Heath Horsham Under-10s won their first Mini Rugby Festival of the season on Sunday, 1st November at Crawley. The A squad won all four pool matches with a 5-0 victory over old rivals Haywards Heath Bs as a warm up, followed by a win over Hove who were unbeaten for the whole of last season and this until losing to a very committed and determined Horsham team 2-1. These two games saw some excellent passages of play with Horsham's rucking a clear strength over other teams and some great passing movements despite the appalling weather. Next up was East Grinstead, who were beaten 2-0, and finally a good 4-0 win over Tonbridge as the weather improved and Horsham's strong running game came into its own. This set up the final against Haywards Heath As, who Horsham had never beaten previously and had won most of the recent tournaments in Sussex. Youth Football

Continued from Page 60 Liam Ruz and a great header by Liam Kidd ensured Lower Beeding had control by half time. Shortly after play resumed, Aaron Pyzer delivered a composed shot, netting a fourth goal, before Tom Bowie latched on to a great pass from Pyzer to make it five.

Under 15 Arun & Chichester YL Horsham Yth had a short trip down to Bolney to face Marle Place Wanderers, who they lost to in last year’s County Cup. Horsham started the brightest and played their passing game, and on 13 minutes Anthony Jupp’s shot from the edge of the box was deflected into the back of the net. Alex Parsons then fired in from 19 yards as Horsham started to take control and Greg Gander rose at the far post for the second game in a row to make it 3-0. Stanley Rice also got on the score sheet with a well placed shot to make the half time score 40. Horsham added to their score when Zak Comber scored twice. Marle Place got a consolation in the 72nd minute, but Horsham came forward again and in the last minute Comber popped up to get his second hat-trick in two weeks with a rare headed goal to make it 7-1. Under 15 Div B H&DYFL Roffey Robins Athletic took the points in a dramatic match at Lower Beeding. A great run and cross from George Hole was slotted in by Max Lewis for the opening goal. The second half was full of drama. Roffey’s Jake Williams had two efforts cleared of the line in quick succession, and Connor Pollards goal bound shot was deflected just wide. Lewis then had a

A closely fought game was broken when Matthew Pitt took a pass on the burst and broke through the Heath defence to score followed by some determined defence by Horsham to

keep a strong Heath side out. The tackling was excellent which never let Heath get any momentum and the commitment and determination was superb with Horsham winning 1-0.

The Under 10s B team also took part in the Festival and played some good rugby against some strong A team opposition eventually losing four games but winning against Crawley.

goal disallowed for a foul on the keeper, before Beeding also had an effort chalked off for offside. With just 3 minutes left on the clock a Craig McCreadie shot was saved by the Beeding keeper, but Matt Sigrist was there to pick up the rebound and poke it in to the back of the net. As the game went into time added on Beeding attacked looking for the equaliser, but Roffey broke away, and a glancing header from Zac Malinsky was hooked in on the volley by Dan Goddard from 10 yards out.

the quarter final of the Cup. Royals took a while to get going and although the home side scored two goals in the first half, goals from Stanley Rice, a quick fire double by Zachary Love and another by Jake Legrange saw Royals 4-2 up at half-time. The second half saw Royals score a further five goals, from Jake Legrange, a double from Tom Frankland, Harry Garman and Jacob Waller. MOTM went to Zachary Love, with good performances from Joshua Wood, Anthony Jupp, Callum McHale and Alex Parsons.

it was BBH who took the lead when Michael Wood’s cross/shot was deflected in for an own goal. On the hour mark, Jack Petersen played a sublime ball over the Lancing right-back and Stuart Barber made no mistake by slotting the ball past the keeper for 2-0. That goal was followed by a wonderful strike from Ollie Moore, who found the corner from all of 30 yards, before Wood added a fourth, latching on to a neat Andy Putnam’s pass. After a little bit of handbags, BBH saw the game out, although Lancing did score a late consolation.

Under 15s Plate George Baker netted twice as Horsham Sparrows beat Storrington Vipers 6-0 in the Plate. Baker opened the scoring after a free- flowing passing move and soon slotted home his second to put Sparrows two up. Joey Calder-Smith netted to extend Sparrows lead before a powerful volley from Dan Stutchbury put Sparrows 4 up. After the break, both teams put even more pressure on each other’s defences until Daniel Barna received the ball after a quick breakaway and guided his long range effort into the top corner. James Cooper scored Sparrow’s sixth and final goal with a fantastic finish from distance. l Roffey Robins Wanderers won at Dorking Saints Pumas. Alex Homes hit a 30 yard scorcher to put Roffey ahead, but it wasn’t until the second half when their neat play was rewarded with a second goal, which came courtesy of Sam Collins. Collins added another to make the final score 3-0.

Horsham & District U16 Cup QF Southwater 'Reds' cup run ended on Saturday, going down 4-1 to East Grinstead. Scott Murrell levelled before the break, but despite looking on-top for most of the game, Southwater soon found themselves behind again and let in another two late goals as they went looking for an equaliser.

Arun & Chichester U16 Cup QF Southwater soon forgot the disappointment of the previous day’s cup exit with a9-1 demolition of Rustington Otters. It took a while for them to find the back of the net, but Ben Chowney scored the first and Man of the Match Zach Haulkham added a second before the break. Adam Laker, Henry Hayden, Alex Best, Chris Maxted and Ryan Thomas all netted in the second half before another two from Haulkham secured the win and setup a semi-final fixture with Arundel.

Under 18s Sunday league Southwater Under 18s came back from a goal behind to earn a creditable draw against Worthing Rebels. In an even first half, Rebels scored late on to go into the break one up. However, shortly after the break Jack Morgan’s strong run down the left ended when he was brought down in the box. Morgan stepped up to convert the spot kick himself to put Southwater level. Southwater dominated the second half but fell behind again late on. However Southwater kept pressing and James Amankwaa’s fine through ball was finished off by Dan Rose.

Under 18s Ismithian Youth Cup Horsham YMCA U18’s crashed out of the Lucas Fettes Ismithian Youth League Cup on Thursday night with a 3-1 home defeat to Sutton United. Not even a Harry Magnus stunner eight minutes from time could spark a late YM revival, as The U’s cruised comfortably into the next stage of the competition.

Metcalfe fires 139 checkout

BBHVC still head the A Division as three of the Divisions games end 5-4. BBHVC stay unbeaten after their win over The Gate in Rusper, while despite losing 5-4 to the Kings Arms, the Rising Sun still hold second place. Greg Upton banged in a maximum for the Sun, but Ross Gillingham's 117 checkout swung the game in favour or the reigning Champions. The Sussex Barn made the trip down to Steyning worthwhile by winning 5-4 at the Cricket Club, with Rob Metcalfe (pictured above) hitting the highest finish of the season, a fine 139. But the week’s biggest movers are the White Harte. They thumped Loxwood Club 9-0 to move into the top three, helped by 104 and 100 finishes from Gary Simpson and Dan Bradford respectably. The Anchor Inn continue to dominate the B Division. Last week it was the turn of the Southwater Club to feel the Anchor's weight, going down 9-0, with Kinchin on target again with his maximum. Railway Inn also remain unbeaten, after beating the Three Compasses 6-3, and the Storrington Club remain hot on the tails of the top two following a 7-2 win at the Dog & Bacon, with Shay Leogue's 118 outshot the highlight for the Storrington side. The Windmill continue to struggle, as they went down 5-4 at home to near neighbours the Plough. Both the top two in the C Division boast 100% records after four games, leaders Railway Colts enjoyed a 6-3 victory over the Kings Head, while the Fountain B ended the Kings Arms C's unbeaten record, when winning 5-4 at the Fountain. Elaine Gray produced a fine 103 finish for the Fountain A, to help her side beat the Cock Inn 7-2, and record their opening win of the season. The Hare & Hounds from Cowfold won their second game, by beating the Windmill B 6-3, to move out of the bottom two.

Bears cave in to rivals The Big Match Report: Nick Hind Pictures: Chris Woolgar BBH Res v Storrington Res A battling second half performance was the only consolation for Broadbridge Heath Reserves as they went down 5-2 against Storrington Reserves. The Swans pulled out a first class performance, brimming with confidence, to leave the Bears nursing a sore head at the wrong end of the Reserve Section-West table. With only one place and point separating the teams before kick off, I expected Heath to come out fighting, marking their territory from the off. But, it was the away side, showing exceptional intensity and desire, which took the game by the scruff as the Bears struggled to find their race pace. The Heath couldn’t even mark Storrington’s shadows as the away side picked their way through a static midfield with ease. And it was no surprise when the Swan’s No. 10, Neil Richardson, started the scoring on 10 minutes; on the run towards the near post, he applied the deftest of touches to a cross from the right, flicking the ball behind his front leg and into the far corner for a peach of an opener. With the Swan’s wide-boy whizz kids, Dan Cobb and Jake Cockerton, terrorising their opposing full-backs, dangerous crosses flew across the Heath box with disturbing regularity, but it was a misplaced pass at the back that

led to Storrington’s second. Kristian Bridle intercepted and ran through to chip the Keeper from 18 yards to give the Swans a 2-0 lead. First half damage not over for the Bears, Jake Cockerton’s Stinging shot was too hot for Keeper, Gary Brown, to handle as Dan Cobb headed into an empty net to make it 3 up for Storrington as the whistle blew for the break. Another from Neil Richardson made it 4-0 before the Bears finally awoke from their hibernation. Damien Francis eventually got the home side off the mark, heading in from a corner. And at 4-1, Heath had opened a chink in the door, but it was slammed shut moments later when Tom Carter drove in No. 5, a cracking low drive past a despairing Gary Brown in the Heath goal. The Bears plugged away valiantly, showing some steel to try and get back on level terms. Nathan Sleat whipped in several dangerous crosses from the left, and the midfield at least fronted up for the second half battle. They got their small reward when Paul Gallagher fired in at the death to make the score-line almost respectable at 5-2. Manager, Mick Robinson, grasped on to the Bear’s sweeter smelling phase of the game afterwards explaining, ‘the first half was forgettable, but, all credit to the boys for

Broadbridge Heath Reserves lost out to Storrington Reserves on Saturday coming out fighting to draw the second half. That’s the determination I will expect for our next game.’ Unsurprisingly, a satisfied Swan’s Supremo, James Baker, was very positive in his team’s appraisal saying, ‘It was a great team performance and we continue to show our ruthlessness in front of goal- that’s 16 goals in 3 games.’ Jumping 2 places on the back of this result, and with a goal record like that, it’s surely only a matter of time before the Swan’s begin a gracious climb up the league. The Bears must start bulking up or they’ll

be looking at a harsh winter.

Premier League Poor finishing was again the problem as Southwater lost 20 at Chichester Uni in a game they should have got a point from. Chi Uni were the better side in the first half and led 1-0 at the break. Southwater improved in the second half and put the home side defence under constant pressure but couldn’t find an equaliser. Toby Lovett went closest forcing the home keeper into a fine save, before the visitors conceded a late second.

Division 2 North AFC Roffey continued their recent good form with another win, this time a 4-2 victory at Rudgwick. They took the lead against the run of play Olly Smith putting in Craig Young who finished well. Gavin Fowler supplied a good cross for Russ Harwood to fire home from close range, before Harwood again added to his tally after a corner from Dan Lawrence was converted with a nice right foot finish. Dan Lawrence added the fourth with a fine jinxing run and strike from the edge of the area. Manager Jonny Lawrence commented: “There would have been fireworks if we had lost that game!” Sussex Junior Cup Despite their best performance of the season Horsham

Crusaders suffered their first defeat of the season when they were beaten 2-1 in the second round of the Sussex Junior Cup to White hart Revolution on Saturday. An under strength Crusaders side showed played with passion, pace and skill and were extremely unlucky to bow out of the competition. In the first half both Adam Parsons and James Callaby hit the crossbar and Chris Atkinson, Matt Mason and Ali Hughes went close. It was completely against the run of play that White Hart Revolution took the lead when a long range shot beat stand-in keeper Jack Mainstone. In the second half Crusaders continued to pour forward and a delightful Chris Atkinson free kick found the head of James Callaby and Crusaders were level. With Dom Giacomelli, Ryan Taylor, George Lewis and Matt Mason solid at the back, it was a shock when they retook the lead late in the second half.

Mid Sussex Junior Cup Nick Baker was the hero for Southwater grabbing himself a hat-trick as Southwater came from behind to book their place in the next round of the Mid Sussex Junior Cup. Forest started the better of the 2 sides and were 2-0 up before the visitors came to life. Baker grabbed a quickfire brace just before half time to ensure the sides went in level

at the break. Southwater were the better side in the second half and took the lead just after the hour when James Amankwaa reacted quickest in a goalmouth scramble to hammer the ball into the bottom corner. Southwater made sure of the win when Chris Leppard`s cross found Baker, and his diving header flew past the ‘keeper to complete an impressive hat-trick.

Sussex County Women Horsham Sparrows Ladies put on a brave and resolute performance before eventually succumbing to East Preston and Littlehampton Town. With virtually the last kick of the first half a miss-hit cross sailed over the Sparrows keeper to put East Preston and Littlehampton Town ahead at the break. Sparrows continued to press with Carys Dunn surging forward and Holly Beth Dazely and Liana Brooksbank battling in midfield. Elizabeth Sharpe and Georgia Malins were solid in the heart of defence and Lucy Sharpe linked up well with Liz Ogden and Player of the Match, Hannah Wright. However as Sparrows started to tire, East Preston and Littlehampton snatched a second to run out 2-0 winners.

Nash signs extension

Robin Rev-best Horsham Riders were negotiating the tricky trials track at Northlands, near Horsham, earlier this month. Riders at the motorcyle trials had to deal with a lot of fallen leaves ready to catch the riders for a dab. This month’s winner on the white expert route was regular top three award winner Clint Leggett, who has changed from a fourstroke bike to a brand new Gas Gas 300.

Runner up on the same make of bike was Alan Aslett. The largest field of the day was the blue route with 19 riders, with the win taken by new name to the top three Sean Staker on 10ml. Best ride of the day went to yellow route rider Robin Ball who rode all the sections clean Regular winner John Yardley was to finish the day in 4th.

Sussex County Cricket Club are delighted to confirm that Chris Nash has signed an extension to his current contract. The Cuckfield-born all-rounder will remain at The County Ground, Hove, until at least the end of the 2013 season. Nash, 27, was awarded his first professional contract with Sussex at the end of the 2004 season, having made his first team debut two years previously, and has since made nearly 5000 first-class runs. He wrote himself into the record books this season by scoring a century at his home club ground of Horsham, as it was the first time in Sussex’s history that the first four batsmen in an innings had each scored a hundred. He also hit a career-best 184 against Leicestershire at Grace Road. Indoor Cricket

Very accurate bowling from Barns Green, kept the Pulborough batsmen in check in week 1 of the Identilam Colts Cricket League on Sunday. Although Jordan Dear (17) and Oli Heasman (12) hung on until the fifth over, wickets began to fall as the batsmen began to take risks. Alex Walker bowled his two overs for a miserly 4 runs, and Pulborough closed on 603. In reply, James Powell,26* & Ben Hill, 20*, knocked off the required runs in the seventh over. Some aggressive fast, straight bowling from Louis Lewis gave Steyning early hope against Barns Green, but sensible batting from Tom Haynes, 26*, and James Powell, 20*, ensured Barns Green posted a formidable 105-4. The situation was even worse as Steyning’s batsmen subsided to 35-5, but last man, 9-year old Chris Barnett, had other ideas, and scored 43, to give Steyning another bonus point. Some suicidal running between the wickets gifted Pulborough early wickets against Steyning, but they were unable to capitalise, and they in turn gave away too many Wides/No Balls, as Steyning’s Oli Collins staged yet another rearguard action with 30, to ensure Steyning had a reasonable total to bowl at. Pulborough made a poor start, slumping to 18-3 in the second over, before Oli Heasman,38*, and Charlie Davies 17, began to tilt the balance back to Pulborough, but after Charlie was out, Oli was left with too much to do.
