‘How I tackled raider at jeweller’s’ Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

EXCLUSIVE

Brave jeweller Dominic Sakakini risked his life by tackling a wouldbe thief. The owner of Sakakini’s, in the Carfax, initially had no idea if a man was carrying a knife when he tried to take eight gold chains worth about £5,000 in total. But Mr Sakakini told The Resident: “I would have hit him harder if he’d had a knife. “Scenarios like this go through your mind and you think what you’d do. “They’re coming into my shop – it’s

my business and I’m going to protect it.” Our dramatic front-page images, taken from closed circuit television, show how Mr Sakakini confronted the man shortly after 1.30pm on

my business and ‘I’mIt’sgoing to protect it

Wednesday. He said: “A lad came in and asked if I had any gold bracelets. I went to the back of the shop looking for a bracelet, but you get a kind of sixth sense about these things so I turned around to come back. “That’s when I noticed him behind my work bench. I didn’t realise he had

something in his hands so I grabbed him from behind, around his body. “He had a jewellery pad with chains on which he threw to an accomplice near the door, But when he threw it, the chains fell off and they both ran off towards Waitrose. “While I was making the 999 call giving the description, that description was coming over on the radio of a police community support officer (PCSO) who had been in the area.” Two men have been arrested in relation to the incident, but police want to hear from anyone who may have seen anyone acting suspiciously in the area. Phone 0845 6070999, quoting serial 839 of May 11. For legal reasons, The Resident has pixelated the faces of two men in the CCTV pictures.

Tories tighten grip on district Long-serving Pat Rutherford among Liberal Democrat casualties but party narrowly avoids even heavier losses Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

Political friends and foe have paid tribute to Pat Rutherford, who lost her seat on Horsham District Council after 23 years. The long-serving Liberal Democrat, who was re-elected in Roffey South by a margin of only 14 votes four years ago, was one of the casualties on a bad day for the Lib Dems this time.

The electorate ‘believes our policies are best to take the district forward

The Conservatives now have 34 councillors, five more than before the poll. The Lib Dems have eight (down five) and there are still two Independents. Cllr David Holmes, Lib Dem group

leader, said: “It’s a great shame that Pat has been defeated. She has been a very caring councillor and extremely capable, especially in relation to affordable housing. “She won very narrowly four years ago and this result was not a great surprise, given the loss of support for the party nationally. “When I heard what was going on in the elections nationally, I thought we would get seven councillors. But we’ve got eight, so I’m quite relieved.” Cllr Robert Nye, Tory leader of the council, said: “Pat Rutherford has given a tremendous level of service to Horsham District Council and particularly the residents of her ward. “I’m sorry to see her go and would publicly like to thank her for her service.” But Cllr Nye added: “My overall reaction to these results is one of delight. The electorate believes our policies are best to take the district forward.” The Lib Dems bucked the trend to gain a seat in Forest and staved off a Tory challenge to win by only six votes in Broadbridge Heath after a recount. Sally Horner had held Broadbridge

Heath for the Lib Dems with a majority of 213 in 2007, but the party’s national unpopularity contributed to a much closer result and the situation was complicated by the presence of two extra candidates. Cllr Holmes, Lib Dem deputy leader David Skipp and county councillor David Sheldon survived strong challenges from the Tories, while Labour was happy to see its vote rise significantly in some wards. Malcolm Curnock, the new Lib Dem councillor for Broadbridge Heath, said: “I knew it would be a very tight result. I had a lot of local support because of my long-term involvement in the village, but the Conservatives made a big effort to retake the seat. “Sally Horner had held the seat for 22 years and was very well known here. My vote got hit by the Labour candidate as they didn’t have a candidate here last time. “I will be there to fight for Broadbridge Heath causes on the council, especially with the 1,000 houses going into the south of the village. “It’s about making sure that the community gets a fair crack out of the

development in terms of facilities.” Helena Croft, a pastor at Kingdom Faith Church, gained a seat for the Tories in Roffey North, where Cllr Skipp held the other seat for the Lib Dems. She said: “We knew that David Skipp was very well respected in the community and I expected him to hold his seat, which he did. But I’m pleased to get more votes than him, which I didn’t expect.” Friday was a day to remember for new Conservative councillor Andrew Dunlop, who heard his result for Cowfold, Shermanbury and West

Grinstead and was also re-elected as chairman of Atlantis swimming club.

would like ‘toWethank all those voters who came home to Labour

He said: “It’s a great honour to have been elected to represent the local community. It’s a big responsibility. I had the opportunity to meet many people on the doorstep during the campaign and to hear their concerns. “They want a local person who will work energetically to ensure their interests are vigorously represented. That’s what I intend to do.” David Hide, chairman of Horsham Labour Party, said: “We would like to thank all those voters who came home to Labour. “We recorded excellent results in Billingshurst and Chantry, while most noticeably in the town centre Horsham Park is now a three-way marginal, our vote having gone up from five per cent to 22 per cent. “Even in Broadbridge Heath, which was a fiercely contested marginal, Labour secured 16 per cent of the vote. “It has always been our intention to re-establish Labour within Horsham district as the progressive alternative. This set of results does just that, ending the myth that a vote for Labour in Horsham is a wasted vote. “Only Horsham Labour Party can provide an alternative voice, especially now that the Lib Dems have lost so many seats.” David Duke, one of the UK Independence Party’s candidates in Billingshurst and Shipley, said: “Congratulations to our successful Tory counterparts (in the ward) with a combined total of 4,241 votes. “The wider picture in Billingshurst was a fantastic result for UKIP, again coming second overall in a local election with 1,603 votes, with the Lib

Dems on 1,367 votes (three candidates) and Labour a dismal 772 (two candidates). “UKIP fielded the largest number of candidates ever in the district. This clearly sends a message that the electorate increasingly have no faith in the two main local parties. “UKIP remain a hardy bunch of down-to-earth people with a common goal. While not all the results were in our favour, I see progress has been made and will no doubt continue.” Turnout across the district was 45.75 per cent – up from 41.57 per cent in 2007.

It’s a big no to AV Horsham district gave a resounding ‘no’ to the alternative vote (AV) for parliamentary elections. A total of 33,878 people in the district (69.3 per cent of those voting) opposed changing the system from first-past-the-post to AV, while 15,039 (30.7 per cent) were in favour. This compared to the nationwide figures of 67.9 per cent against and 32.1 per cent for. The South East voted 70.3 per cent to 29.7 per cent. Every council area in Sussex voted against AV, but it was a very close call in Brighton and Hove where the ‘no’ vote was 50.14 per cent.

Double surprise in village election

News in Brief Rusper gun arrests

Councillor defeated after ‘lifetime’ on parish council Elections took place for seven parish councils in Horsham district, with not enough interest to trigger a contest in other areas. One of the most keenly contested elections was in Billingshurst, whose parish councillor David Duke told The Resident: “The 15 contested seats proved a very interesting contest indeed, with 18 candidates. “Most candidates entered with enthusiasm and spirit. Others, like myself, have very busy working schedules and were unable to be quite so proactive. “The election result was a clear and concise one, which generated a great mix of experience. “There were also two surprises. Sadly after what seems a lifetime on the parish council we have lost Cliff Griffin, and Alan Grant failing to be re-elected was a shock for most.

above mentioned for all their hard work. On a personal note, it was still a joy to learn I had been re-elected. I thank all who voted for me. “The village has the benefit of a fresh intake of new ideas, skills, views and enthusiasm, working together with the parish clerk and her superb parish office team for the better of the village. “I would urge members of the public to attend parish council and committee meetings regularly and become more supportive and involved with village issues and projects. “I hope we continue and improve dialogue and our working relationship with our very proactive Billingshurst Community Partnership and Chamber of Commerce.”

Three men were arrested after a disturbance in Rusper on Sunday. Police attended the Capel Road area shortly before midday after a report that a 56-year-old man from Banstead, Surrey, had been threatened and his car damaged. They believe an air weapon was discharged but not fired at anyone. No one was injured. Det Insp Russ Sheppard said: “We are still investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident and the exact circumstances which led up to the report that a firearm had been discharged.” Two men from Rusper, aged 29 and 48, were arrested on suspicion of firearms offences. A 24-year-old man from Sandhurst was arrested on suspicion of burglary. They have all been bailed until June 22. Anyone with information can contact police on 0845 6070999, quoting serial 718 of May 8, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Shoplifting arrest A 42-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly shoplifting at Beales, The Forum, Horsham, on Tuesday. She was taken to the East Surrey Hospital, Redhill, after being handcuffed and appearing to shake on the ground, but was soon moved out of the hospital and into police custody.

What does the Big Society mean to you? West Sussex County Council has launched an online survey to find out. Cllr Louise Goldsmith, leader of the council, said: “Many people across the county are already rising to the challenge of the Big Society and playing an active role in deciding what their communities need. “We hope this survey will uncover many more examples of the Big Society in action and help us to look ahead to how we might help expand the concept.” See www.westsussex.gov.uk/ haveyoursay and click on the ‘live consultations’ link. At the end of the survey, people will be invited to join the county council’s e-panel, an online group which regularly asks for opinions and views. Cllr Goldsmith added: “The e-panel is a great way for us to quickly and easily find out more about the views of our residents.”

Climbers’ peak performance These four men are preparing to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales. And if that isn’t a big enough challenge, they aim to do it inside 24 hours. Michael Kemmitt, Douglas Jackson, Ben Burchell and Andrew Zographos, plus driver Martin Boyes, will raise money for Help for Heroes by scaling Ben Nevis in Fort William (4,409ft), Scafell Pike in the Lake District (3,209ft) and Snowdon in Gwynedd (3,560ft).

A-pearl-ing crime Pearls worth about £180,000 were taken from the car boot of a 41-year old salesman from Germany. Two men smashed their way through the back windscreen and removed four briefcases and one plastic box, containing long strings of pearls which were not made up into jewellery items for sale. Each string had a tag on it, showing a picture of a pearl diver and the company name of DI PERLE. The men are believed to have driven towards the A24 in a blue Volkswagen Passat after the theft, which happened in North Street, Storrington, at about 2.30pm last Wednesday, May 4.

Twenty dance sides from around the South East entertained the crowds in Piries Place, Market Place, the Forum and around the bandstand. The final display dance of the day was performed by the Broadwood Morris Men, hosts of this annual

Memories of 1951

Foster carers needed

We need a new dawn

Your latest contrasting photographs (The Resident, May 6) graphically illustrate the radical changes in Horsham over the past 60 years. And they present anyone with memories of the town in the 1950s with something of a challenge. The black and white photograph was taken in 1951 at the junction of Park Terrace East and Queen Street. On the extreme left can be seen the corner of the then Alexander public house. Opposite – now occupied by a row of typical Sixties shops – were open fields and allotments owned, as I recall, by members of the Gillings family. The Gillings also ran a small fresh-fish shop under the arches in Park Terrace West, on the opposite side of Queen Street. In 1951, Queensway was non-existent. It was developed during the early Sixties, access to Gillings allotments being made by a pathway alongside the Iron Bridge, towards East Street and the Carfax. I realise that having memories of Horsham as it was in the 1950s tends to date me. But I hope my memories may be of interest to newcomers to the town.

Fostering makes a huge and positive difference to the lives of so many children and young people. It is also a highly rewarding experience for the foster carers who look after the children.   Some of your readers may have thought about fostering but might not know how to start. Others may have concerns that might prove unfounded once they are given the information they need.   West Sussex County Council urgently needs to recruit more foster carers. This is to make sure the county maintains the broad range of experience and skills it requires to meet the needs of our looked-after children. It is also because some of our carers are reaching retirement.   One of our carers has fostered for over 45 years. During that time she has looked after 530 children. Although aged 70 she is still fostering but obviously can’t go on forever. Children come into care for a range of reasons, including family illness or because they have been abused or neglected. Fostering can be both short or long term and can range from just a few days to several years. It provides children with a loving family home while their problems are dealt with. The council does its utmost to match foster carers in the county with West Sussex children best suited to them. Children and young people thrive on familiarity so we try to keep them close to their school, friends, people and places they know. At the same time we make sure our carers receive all the training and support they need. Foster carers come from all walks of life and from a range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. You can apply to foster regardless of your marital status or sexuality. During Foster Care Fortnight (May 16-29) we will hold a series of events in the county. These include informal drop-in sessions – Rustington Library on May 26 and Crawley Library on May 28 – where there will be a chance to ask questions to existing foster carers and our recruitment team. I would strongly urge any of your readers who have thought about fostering to get in touch with us by calling 01403 229333 or visiting www.westsussex.gov.uk/fostering They could make a big difference to the children in need of care and at the same time enrich their own lives.

As an apolitical local charity we do not have a particular interest in who runs the council. However, we do have a concern that the new administration should act democratically, rationally and ethically in all that it does. In this respect we were concerned to learn that there are advanced, but undeclared, new proposals in operation for the Old Town Hall – even before new councillors have taken their seats. Too often in the past, Cabinet members have been free to operate outside of stated council policy by, for example, not renting out the top floor of the building as determined in September 2006. In our view, the majority of council members should not be there to simply elect a largely out of town Cabinet with no minority representation and after that, largely confine themselves to just making up the numbers. Current council policy for the Old Town Hall is for restaurant use, as confirmed to us in an answer to a recent Cabinet question. We strongly believe it is for the council as a whole to change this policy, not for a small handful of members to sit down and determine a ‘fudge-like’ compromise that does not serve the economic interests of the district. The officers and staff of the council should, in theory, also be using their professional expertise to implement council policy. We do not feel the staff should be there as servants of individual Cabinet members. We therefore welcome all the newly elected councillors and hope they will usher in a new dawn of rational decision-making, putting personalities and political power games aside in the interests of the electorate.

I’m ashamed to say I share your struggle. Of course, I’m not about to break out into a feverish sweat or undergo an array of bodily withdrawal symptoms should I not see my daily notifications. But I am an avid user. What could be more exciting than posting a status, sharing with the world what you’re currently doing or listening to, or what’s just occurred outside your bedroom window? Nothing. Or so it would seem.  What confuses me most about Facebook is its immense appeal to a growing population. When I try to think about what gets me scrambling to the log-in page, I yearn to fathom the ‘what’ of Facebook’s attraction. The structure and format are simplistic and dull. In essence it’s a white page with your name at the top and a blank space for friends to post what they please on your wall. Bad luck if you are unfortunate enough to be friends with a parent or family member when your closest allies decide to post on your wall, exposing you for smoking, drinking or general youthful frolic. So back to this transparent hook that binds us to an online social networking site with more than 500 million active users. Is it the art of ‘tagging’ that keeps us unwaveringly gripped? Surely when you know you’ve been to a party and consumed one too many drinks you can’t wait too long before logging in to ‘remove tag’. Perhaps it is the accessible gateway of intrusion into the lives of others that explains why most people find themselves regular visitors to the site. And what an intrusion it is! It’s like an online Mystic Meg to find  out who’s fighting with who, who’s now in a relationship, who did or didn’t invite you to that party this weekend and where people just ‘checked in’. What was life like before this Facebook malarkey? I can scarcely remember. I recently tried to quit Facebook for lent. I didn’t last a week, found it harder than quitting smoking, got addicted to Twitter instead and found myself hovering over the Facebook Blackberry app icon, gnawing my face in frustration. Pathetic. Indeed it would seem not enough people know about Facebook, so the movie industry had better make a film all about it called The Social Network. Great movie it must be said, but let us at least draw the line somewhere. I have now decided to try to use Facebook only every other day. Despite being online yesterday and being logged in now as I type, I’m doing well! Facebook can be great. Just be sure to get the balance right, get yourself out and about and don’t spend excessive amounts of time on there at once. It may take over your life.

It’s all action at Horsham Cricket Club Martin Read Cricket

Things are buzzing at Cricketfield Road. The ground looks a picture and a veritable feast of cricket is on offer, Horsham playing at home against Three Bridges tomorrow (Saturday). Four Horsham men’s sides play on Saturdays, one on Sundays and Thursdays, and there is a ladies team and matches for colts and girls in age groups from U9 upwards. The extensive new practice area

is proving very popular. There is colts coaching every night through the week and mini cricket for five to eight-year-olds on Fridays, providing a fun and informal introduction to the game. The first XI have won the Sussex Premier League eight times and the cup competition on 11 occasions, a unique record. Other Horsham teams have won an impressive array of trophies too, but 2005 was a particularly proud year for Horsham when they took the National Cockspur Cup at Lord’s,

with all but one of the Horsham team graduating through the coaching system. With so much cricket at the club a second facility is essential and in 1971 the John Dew ground was opened alongside the established playing area at Cricketfield Road. The late Dr Dew captained Horsham and was its visionary president for over 40 years. Horsham is one of the oldest cricket clubs in the country, six years senior to the MCC. Wikipedia lists its foundation as a key event of 1771,

when 11 men of Horsham played 22 of High Chalvington. East Grinstead were among other initial opponents and 240 years later the two sides are still competing against each other. In 1771 bats were curved and heavy, the bowling was underarm and the score was kept by carving notches on a stick. The present ground was established in 1851, courtesy of local benefactors, the Tredcroft family. Prior to that, cricket was played at various venues, including Horsham Common and Denne Park. The pavilion was donated in 1876 by the Lucas family, several of whom played for Horsham.  Originally the building stood by the footbridge over the railway. Today’s ground had previously been covered by Horsham barracks, occupying about 12 acres, part of the build-up of military bases during the Napoleonic threat. The range of buildings included eight barrack blocks housing 2,000 troops, surrounded by the parade ground, a hospital, a guardhouse and stabling. Many famous players have graced Horsham cricket ground, including Hobbs, Larwood and Viv Richards. Exhilarating cricket is provided when Sussex entertain county opposition, as they have been happy to do for over 100 years. Horsham has provided a steady stream of players through to the county side, recently including Robin Martin-Jenkins, Chris Nash, Will Beer, Andrew Hodd and Michael Thornely. Sussex will return for a four-day game against Worcestershire starting on Wednesday, August 10, and a oneday match against the same opposition on Sunday, August 14. On these red-letter days, the

ground, fringed with seating and marquees, really comes alive. Club stalwart Barry Peay and his army of helpers ensure all runs smoothly. Sussex 2nd XI will play Surrey on June 13 and July 4-6, Essex on June 20 and June 21-23, and Ireland A on August 22-24.

There is nowhere ‘better to play or watch than at Horsham ’

On President’s Day, June 6, the MCC will bring two sides – men and women. The finals of the local knockout competitions are in July, with the Mirfield Cup on the 12th and the Gullick on the 26th. There is also a full agenda of other tournaments, from school and colts competitions to the league second XI T20 final and the Sussex Women’s Cup final. The full programme requires dedicated captains, players, coaches, administrators, scorers, umpires, caterers and bar staff, mainly unsung but all industrious on and off the field. The club was pleased to welcome back Lawrence Gosling as groundsman, working tirelessly with his new assistant, Joe Cox.  Richard Marshall continues to tend the playing area expertly on match days. Surely there is no nicer walk to any ground than down the Causeway, through St Mary’s churchyard and over the river – and nowhere better to play or watch than at Horsham, with its impressive backdrop of the parish church and superb display of mature trees.

If you can not get to us at our shop, we can arrange home visits. Or why not earn extra cash and hold a gold party!

We will not be beaten on price.

A Taste of controversy for council Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

A council has defended itself after claims it should concentrate on providing services rather than producing magazines. West Sussex County Council came under fire from the Taxpayers’ Alliance, a national pressure group, for publishing Taste West Sussex. Figures seen by The Resident

be streamlining and concentrating on core services. “If taxpayers want a food magazine they’ll go out and buy one.” Cllr Warwick Hellawell, Liberal Democrat county councillor for Roffey, said: “Though I approve of the council’s efforts to stimulate the local economy of West Sussex, I do not think this is something the council should be doing. “I would have thought that as a Tory-run council this would be considered ripe for the Big Society to

suggest the magazine is making a small profit when the costs of design and printing are considered, but this does not include editorial costs and the time taken to produce it. A spokesman for the Taxpayers’ Alliance said: “West Sussex County Council should be focusing on providing front-line services, not printing magazines. “Even if this isn’t costing taxpayers money, it is worrying that the council are focusing time and effort on extras like this when they should

be taking on – and that they would actively look to move this to where it should really be undertaken, the private or voluntary sector. “This does not seem to be the case.” Cllr Morwen Millson (Lib Dem, Horsham Riverside) said: “I remain concerned that the communications department cannot give me a breakdown of the editorial costs, but the magazine seems to be washing its face and must be doing some good in the promotion of local produce. “On balance, it’s probably just about worth the council doing.” A spokesman for the county council told The Resident: “Taste is published for one reason – to support a very vital part of the West Sussex economy, particularly in rural areas where jobs and prosperity depend on the farming and growing industry. “The magazine, which was launched in autumn 2007, is produced at no cost to the taxpayer and is very much a core function of the county council to support and encourage a vibrant economy, particularly during the current tough economic times. “We have lots of anecdotal comments from the businesses featured that they really value the magazine’s

support for the rural economy and the way it helps to drive up footfall and increase interest in their products and services. “For example, we also promote farmers’ markets. The latest edition has a special feature on farm shops and a campaign to save West Sussex pubs from closing. “We also use the magazine to crosspromote other council services and priorities, with particular emphasis on promoting environmentally friendly behaviour. “Encouraging consumers to use local farmers, growers and producers helps to reduce food miles and cut our carbon footprint. “It also promotes healthy eating and living. This is one of the county council’s priorities, especially with the government’s proposals for public health to return to local authorities. “We have also had lots of positive feedback about the way Taste has helped to revive interest in traditional produce and conservation.” Cllr Brad Watson (Con, Southwater and Nuthurst) said: “I think it is great. The more we can promote the magazine the more we can increase circulation.”

2012 Olympics comes to Broadbridge Heath (ish) The Grenada Olympic Association will use Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre as a training camp for two or three weeks before the London 2012 Olympic Games. And the Pavilions in the Park, Horsham, may be used as a training base for the team’s swimmers. The Memorandum of Understanding between Grenada Olympic Committee, Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council was signed by Grenada’s Veda Bruno Victor in the presence of Cllr Deborah Urquhart, county council Cabinet member for environment and economy. A multilateral collaboration and exchange through sport, education, sports science, business and cultural links will also be encouraged between Grenada and West Sussex in the spirit of Olympic friendship. Cllr Brian Donnelly, chairman of Horsham District Council, said, “This is great news for Horsham and is a credit to the excellent leisure

facilities that are already on offer to Horsham district residents of all sporting standards, from the occasional leisure user to Olympic-standard athletes. “With the Barbados Olympic Association already confirmed as using the K2, Crawley, as its pre-Games training camp and talks taking place with other Caribbean nations, we can potentially look forward to perhaps 70 or 80 Olympic athletes coming to West Sussex to take advantage of our superb facilities.” Natalie Brahma-Pearl, director of community services at Horsham District Council, said: “Plans are already underway to develop a programme of themed Olympic activities in the district in the run-up to the Games. “We are working closely with local business partners to provide the best training facilities and support possible to ensure that these athletes have a successful, smooth and enjoyable stay in the district prior to their transfer to the Olympic Village.”

children or young people through a difficult period of their lives. The role of a foster carer is so important in helping these children feel safe, secure and settled when they are away from their family. A foster carer can also help a child or young person to develop their skills and confidence, to rebuild their lives and fulfil their potential. If you’re interested in learning more about foster care, why not visit one of our monthly library drop-in sessions being held throughout the county in 2011? For more information, call the Fostering Recruitment Team on 01403 229333 or visit www.westsussex.gov. uk/fostering.

West Sussex has over 400 foster carers but is always looking for more people to provide a warm and nurturing family environment for those children in need.

Could you make the difference? Knowing that you have helped change a child’s life for the better can be very worthwhile. Fostering involves caring for children or young people in your own home while their own parents are unable to look after them. Fostering can also be used to help

Hornets’ grounds for concern or optimism? Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

Horsham Football Club will submit a planning application for a new ground amid financial turmoil and after the departure of manager John Maggs. The stadium site is unlikely to come as a surprise to observers of the Hornets, but The Resident is not prepared to name it yet as breach of confidentiality could scupper the scheme. Horsham chairman Kevin Borrett said: “We are presently constrained by confidentiality agreements regarding the new ground, but I am hopeful that a further statement of our intent can be made public next week.” Club insiders are understood to be concerned that the location has been leaked before those involved in the scheme were ready to release any details. Horsham have been groundsharing for three seasons – first at Worthing, now with Horsham YMCA at Gorings Mead – following the sale of the club’s old Queen Street ground for development. Mr Borrett said: “Horsham FC can no longer sustain annual financial

losses at the level run up over the past six seasons whilst waiting for the new ground to come to fruition. “Delays beyond any means of our control have meant that instead of being relocated in our new ground by now as planned for, we have to budget for at least another two seasons’ ground-sharing and managing our finances accordingly.

action now ‘weByaretaking ensuring the long-term survival of Horsham FC

“There is no further room for any losses and by taking action now we are ensuring the long-term survival of Horsham FC. “Fixed costs almost exceed all of the club’s income from match days and from our Holbrook investment, to the point that we can no longer sustain the services of a full-time manager. “When John Maggs’ contract expires at the end of May, we regret it will not be renewed. “John is a professional and has served Horsham magnificently. His achievements for the club are legendary. “The next few seasons are critical and we could no longer provide John with the budget he would need to operate at the levels he is used to. “John has been aware of this position for some while and has worked tirelessly to provide a solution to some of the financial issues. Unfortunately even with some additional sponsorship income, we remained well short of a viable target. “Horsham FC is not just about the Ryman Premier first team. We have a hugely successful youth set-up here with all of our young junior teams winning trophies this season. “We will seek a manager who is prepared to work with our U18

squad to bring them through into the first team as well as senior players, but they will have to be prepared to play for the next couple of seasons for little more than expenses. “We know how difficult it is going to be, but until we get into a position where we can afford to pay more to players then it has to be the case.  It will be an extreme challenge, but we have to be prepared to fight. “Once we are relocated and we build our income, then we can develop further. “We are not a club with a wealthy benefactor and have to live within our means. We can only use the money we have and rely on our magnificent supporters and sponsors. “Running a football club is a very expensive business, just in travel to away matches at this level, and we would appeal to anyone who operates a coach company willing to provide us with transport. “It is now time to consolidate, regroup and for that we ask our supporters to get behind us to help see us through this difficult time.”

John Maggs admits he is not surprised by his departure from Horsham after 11 years as manager. He told The Resident: “To be honest, I half expected it. The board asked me to go away and present them with some sort of survival pack, which I did. “It took a few weeks for them to digest the figures, but they came to the conclusion that it wouldn’t work and would leave the club still at a very big loss. The playing budget will be reduced to virtually nil. “I accept that finances are not

there to support what has been in place in the past. However, the last three seasons have been really challenging for me with the cuts that have been imposed. “I leave the club still playing Ryman Premier League football, the highest level the club has played at in its history, but I feel until a new home is found it will continue to be a struggle. “The club has something special about it and there are some really nice people who work really hard. The supporters are truly the best. “I would like to thank everybody

I’ve been involved with over the last 11 years. That includes sponsors who support the club, the media and close friends within the club. “The affection and passion I have for Horsham FC, its players and supporters will always remain with me. “The club must move on and I wish them well in these difficult times. I sincerely hope there is good news on the ground. “I will definitely stay in football. I know I’ve got what it takes to continue in management and the drive for the challenges in front of me.”

From coffee lovers to winners Concluding this year’s Caffe Italia competition, two locals who voted for their favourite coffee shop have been presented with prizes

Last week we announced that Santa Fe, on the first floor of Waterstones, had been crowned the king of coffee in our Caffe Italia competition. But the coffee shop was not the only winner. Everyone who voted for their favourite coffee shop or restaurant and provided their details was automatically entered into a prize draw to win one of two fantastic prizes, which were generously donated by local companies. Congratulations to Celia Conceicao, who won a £320 Delonghi coffee maker donated by Steamer Trading Cook Shop and Caroline Thomas who won a coffee hamper full of goodies donated by Costa Coffee. The two winners were presented with their prizes by the managers of each business, earlier this week. Celia, whose favourite coffee drink is a hazelnut latte, said: “We drink a lot of coffee. We have an old coffee machine at the moment but it’s a lot smaller. So it’s going on eBay! This one is fantastic”. Before the handover, Steamer Trading’s John Bowles gave a demonstration on how to use the machine at the shop’s showroom, where they offer a wide range of coffee makers.

Costa Coffee’s manager Russell Martin hands over the coffee goods to Caroline Thomas

National Award for AToM AToM (All Types of Mortgages), the Horsham-based mortgage broker and distributor, has been voted ‘Best Mortgage Packager’ for the second year running in the myIntroducer.com awards 2011. The online awards cover a wide selection of sectors within the finance industry including second charge lenders, brokers and short-term lenders. Dale Jannels, Sales & Marketing Director at AToM said: “Winning the award once was amazing, but to win it two years running is quite

astounding, we are very grateful. “These are one of the few industry awards where there are no judging panels; the awards are based purely on the number of votes received. “We have a superb team at AToM and this award is testament to their continued hard work and the excellent service they provide to our customers.” Other categories in the awards include Best Surveyor, Best Unsecured Lender and Best Mortgage Network. For more information, search online for Myintroducer.com awards.

Winner of the hamper, Caroline, whose favourite coffee drink is an espresso, spoke for the hundreds of people who had entered Caffe Italia to help find the town’s best coffee and commented: “I absolutely love my coffee and I was pleased to see that lots of other people do to, which is why I entered. It’s a great idea.” Caroline was given her hamper of coffee-related products by Costa Coffee’s manager, Russell Martin. He said: “We were happy to take part in the competition. We did it because we’re the best Italian coffee shop around! It’s great to be involved.” Donating a prize for The Resident’s Caffe Italia competition is just one in a long line of initiatives that Costa Coffee in Horsham supports. Russell added: “We are keen to be a part of the community, and support local people and businesses”. Steamer Trading Cook Shop is a family-run organisation and award winning kitchenware specialist with stores across the south of England. The Horsham branch can be found on East Street. Costa Coffee is a chain of coffee shops across the UK. The group’s town centre shop is on West Street. The Caffe Italia competition was organised in association with Piazza Italia, the three-day Italian event that took place over the Easter weekend. The Resident plans to repeat the competition next year.

Albion programme contract goes to ‘loyal’ Billingshurst printers

A Billingshurst printing company has signed a deal with Brighton and Hove Albion to produce the football club’s programmes for a further two years. The Sussex print specialists, WSL, has printed the club’s matchday programme for the last ten years, and will now continue as the club moves to its new home at the American Express Community Stadium as a Championship club. Brighton and Hove Albion’s managing director, Ken Brown, said: “WSL has provided a first class service throughout our time at Withdean, so we felt it was right to reward their loyalty when we move to our new home. “They are all huge supporters of the club, and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.” Richard Ball, from WSL, added: “I am delighted to have secured the deal to print the Albion programme, Seagull, as the club moves into the Amex stadium. This is a tribute to all the hard work the WSL team have put into producing the programme over the last ten years. “Owing to the success on the pitch, all of a sudden the Albion programme became the hottest print job in town and that is credit to everyone at the club. They have stayed loyal not only to us but also to the many suppliers who have supported the club through tougher times. “Personally, I can’t wait for WSL to print the first programme in the Premier League, which may well happen in a couple of years time.”

Week of celebration for salon owner Expansion, a move and a marriage mark milestones for a local businesswoman as she celebrates ‘best time of her life’ It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Undercutting Unisex Hair Salon. The hairdressers has moved to larger premises following its success, since opening in 2010. As well as relocating, the company has also expanded the services it offers, with new beauty treatments and (as if that weren’t enough) its owner got married – all in one week! The salon has moved from Southwater to the Brighton Road, in Horsham, which owner Tania Clarke hopes is still convenient for her loyal customers: “We are on the main road and our customers who live in Southwater can get to us easily via Kerves Lane, plus there’s free street parking here so it’s nice and easy”. Tania told The Resident. As well as hair styling, customers

can now also choose from holistic therapies, massages, beauty treatments, facials, waxing, spray tanning, eyelash tinting and manicures and pedicures. Tania has also hand picked seven new members of staff. The expansion comes as a result of the popularity of the salon since it first opened and the demand for a wider range of services. Tania also married her partner, in the same week. The pair arrived at their reception on horseback and Tania had to be prised away from her beloved Blackberry as she dealt with work emails, shortly before leaving for the ceremony. She said: “They literally had to drag me away from work before the wedding. But that’s only because I care so much about the business and

our customers. I am really excited to bring these new services to them – many of whom have told me they really like being able to have a range of treatments in one place. It’s an exciting time.” The pace is showing no signs of slowing for Tania and her team just yet, despite protests from family members that she needs to take a break and enjoy her honeymoon. “Everyone told me to stop working until after the honeymoon, which made me laugh out loud, because I had a meet and greet planned with our new staff members the next day!” Despite a hectic few weeks leading to the two milestones, Tania says it’s all worth it: “It’s been the best time of my life. I’m so happy”, she told The Resident.

Salsa Evolution celebrate their first birthday This month Horsham based Salsa Evolution, is celebrating its first full year in business. Following the very successful launch event last Spring, which attracted close to 100 dancers, Salsa Evolution has grown into an established local brand, with lots of loyal and happy students. We speak to business owner and lead teacher Claire Dilliway, to find out what her secret of success is.  And to ask the crucial question, when can you start YOUR Salsa journey?  

Q: What perspective has a full year of business brought you? 

A:  “It has been a year of learnings.

I have adapted Salsa Evolution’s business model to suit Horsham district’s Salsa needs.  Whereas ‘drop-in’ classes are the norm in London, I have found pre-booked Salsa Courses to be more popular and better suited to Horsham people. The secret to business success is in the name really... ‘Evolution’.  I have continually evaluated what is successful and what needs adapting, evolving the business in the best direction.”

FR

Q: So your pre-booked courses are popular?  Why?    

A:

a party!  On Saturday 21st May we are holding a Salsa Party at North Heath Hall, Horsham.  Doors open at 7.45pm, classes on all levels at 8pm, and social dancing until 11pm.  £10 entry or £6 for Absolute Beginners.  Bring your own drinks.  Free parking.  It’s going to be a great night, very friendly and lots of fun.  Top London DJ and teachers.  All levels welcome.  

Q: And finally, what is next for Salsa Evolution?  

A:  Well, more Salsa of course!  We

R CLA E T S A T ’ S R E N N EE BEGI

It’s free. It’s fun.

“Salsa Evolution teach 5 Week Salsa courses, from Absolute Beginner level up to Intermediate level, in central Horsham.  I think courses have been so popular because they guarantee progress in your dancing. This means that you learn a new skill for life, and get high value for your money and most importantly, for your time.  I aim to balance a perfect mix of guaranteed progression with plenty of fun and laughter, in all my lessons.  My students can vouch for that:  “Claire makes her classes fun and breaks down the moves, making it very easy to learn”, says one, “Great fun, great company and a great teacher.  Excellent.  Very addictive”, enthuses another.”  Each new group of students becomes great friends, and there is a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in class.

Blossom is one of UK’s ‘finest’ Double recognition The flower and gift shop has been included in a national guide for exceptional floristry, for the third year Blossom, the independent, contemporary florists, card and gift shop in Horsham’s Piries Place, has been accepted for the Good Florist Guide for the third year running. The guide is an online directory, made up of the finest florists in the UK. Those businesses that are included are acknowledged as offering a high level of floristry and service. The guide aims to give customers confidence that they are buying from the best. Each florist shop invited to be in the guide has to pass a rigorous evaluation process before being approved. This meant Blossom had to submit a detailed description of their floristry business, including its range available and services offered as well as images of the shop, its design work, team and the delivery vehicle. Shops that make it into the Good Florists Guide are not just judged

on how they look. Those included also offer the very best value when it comes to buying bespoke floristry and flowers. This is considered to be because owners and staff members have the best product knowledge to make sure the flowers and plants customers buy from them will last. Commenting on Blossom’s success, owner, Alice Bradley said: “We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide three years in a row. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised.” Caroline Marshall-Foster, the UK’s leading expert on independent bespoke florists, is responsible for setting up the Good Florist Guide. She is editor of Florist & Wholesale Buyer, the florist industry’s bible, and owner of Wordhouse Publishing Group – which provides services to all sectors of the flower industry.

Horsham business wins award after adding ‘road risks’ to its health and safety remit

Caroline said: “You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg. “Good Florist Guide is my way of

sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.” For more information visit www. blossomflowers.biz

Full marks for Lifestyle Europe Sussex dealership is driving up standards after ticking every box in industry assessment Lifestyle Europe, the Sussex Ford dealership group, has been acknowledged for the highest standard of repairs and servicing at two of its branches in West Sussex. The dealerships in Horsham and Crawley received full marks in an assessment by the RAC Service Workmanship Quality Programme. The industry-leading 100% result was awarded for comprehensive and consistent levels of service. The RAC Service Workmanship Quality Programme has been running since it was launched in 2005. The scheme was introduced in order to monitor the standards of work carried out in Ford workshops and the RAC was selected as a truly independent body to monitor and judge the programme because of the organisation’s heritage and its well established independence. Managing director of Lifestyle Europe, Peter Isted, said: “These results are great news for our service teams at Lifestyle, but probably more importantly, it guarantees we deliver a high level of service to our customers.” “Our base of loyal customers is an important aspect of our business and being able to offer them the peace of mind of two trusted brands, Lifestyle Ford and the RAC, means we can provide the safest and best service for their cars.” “Now we have achieved a perfect score we will be working with extra enthusiasm to maintain our high standards.”

Operating in a similar way to a mystery-shopper, Ford dealerships received surprise spot checks of workshops as part of the RAC programme. Lifestyle Ford is among the 6,000 unannounced audit checks each year and having proved its skill with 100% for servicing, it also scored highly in its audit. The in-depth programme involves each authorised repairer conducting quality checks on customers’ vehicles that have had works completed by Ford dealerships. A minimum of 10% of vehicles at each site are tested to ensure the work meets the exacting standard expected from Ford.

Open day for unique new office campus Verve Properties, the new owners of Graylands business park on Langhurstwood Road, is hosting Business Scene on Friday, June 24. The event will give people the opportunity to view the office spaces that have been refurbished at the site and will take place in the manor house. The spaces include a Wesleyan chapel, hybrid warehouse/office spaces and the elegant manor house. The estate offers a refreshing alternative for business space in Horsham, and buildings benefit from unique features such as two-storey high graphics, petal shaped break-out tables, recycled maple gym floors, a croquet lawn and built in barbecue. The Business Scene open day is for all businesses in the West Sussex area that are interested in expanding their network and promoting their

company and skills. A hog roast and bar will be available, providing an ideal opportunity for businesses to invite customers and network. There will also be informative lectures, seminars, workshops and displays.  Caroline Doggart, from Verve Properties, said: “Many will have no idea Graylands even exists and we are sure that once they see the lifestyle choice that is on offer there, they will find it a really tempting alternative to the hassle of being in the town centre.  “The buildings are coming along nicely now and I’m really excited to see them all shiny and newly regenerated in time for this exciting event”. If you would like to get involved in the Business Scene event or the Family Fun day, contact Rachael on 01903 867 747 or email admin@lifestylesussex.com

Ringway, a leading highway civil engineering contractor based in Horsham, has been awarded two gold awards by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA). The two categories were ‘RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety’ and ‘Managing Occupational Road Risk’ and the business was acknowledged for its pioneering approach to occupational health and safety along with its ‘management of road risk’ programme. Group Health, Safety and Environment Manager, David Campbell, said: “This award is a result of true team effort and reflects the positive culture we have achieved across the business. “Health and safety has often become a byword for ‘busy-bodies’ but at Ringway this is really not the case. We value the wellbeing of our staff and see our work in health and safety as vital in producing a positive, rewarding and safe working environment across our business. To be awarded these RoSPA accolades gives the entire team the recognition it deserves for maintaining this important focus, and we are absolutely delighted.” The award for Managing Road Risk has been achieved for Ringway’s Vigiroute road risk management programme. The robust procedure allows Ringway to manage road risk and clearly observe the volume and type of vehicle incidents that occur within Ringway and manage them accordingly. Ringway’s Vigiroute champions were praised for taking this process forward and for their commitment to ensuring that driver risk is managed in the same way and with the same enthusiasm and care as all other aspects of health and safety. “We are moving up a gear in the way we manage road risk. Crashes involving commercial vehicles and company cars are seen by some organisations as being outside the normal remit of health and safety. At Ringway, we manage road risk in the same way we manage all other risks and have implemented the Vigiroute system. Following this approach we are starting to see a reduction in the number of crashes, which has obvious benefits. It is very rewarding to be externally recognised for the first time this year with RoSPA’s Gold Award.” David Campbell said. Investing in the future of its business requirements, civil engineering and staff is of paramount importance to Ringway. The organisation runs a Graduate Development Programme, Ringway Apprenticeships and a Schools Outreach Scheme.

Sublime songwriter performs this Sunday James Hood Entertainment Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

An entertainer who describes himself as “a left-handed, balding, middle-aged songwriting folky from Scotland’s highest village” will be appearing at Horsham Folk Club on Sunday, May 15. Dave Gibb, from the village of Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway, has a distinctive guitar style and a voice that can carry traditional and contemporary songs. As a songwriter he produces music ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, which makes for a truly entertaining live show. Dave drew early inspiration as a guitarist from his heroes Paul Simon, Richard Thompson, Bert Jansch and anyone else who plays acoustic guitar and he continues to pick up influences from more contemporary players. His own music has evolved into a sound and style that encompasses

blues, folk, jazz and he is now an established performer throughout the acoustic/folk club, festival and concert scene. The not-too-serious songs reflect a slightly cynical view of the world. As a result, his songs have titles as diverse as The Leaving (about the highland clearances) and Mentally Degoolified (about the neutering of his cat) as well as subjects that range from the death of John the Baptist (Caravaggio’s Eyes) to what life must

have been like as a chamber pot emptier living on the banks of the Yangtze River (Better Life Next Time). It promises to be an entertaining and thought provoking evening. On stage from 8pm at Horsham Folk Club, Normandy Centre, Denne Road, Horsham. Tickets: £5 (Members £3), under 21s and students free. Available on the door from 7.45pm. For more information call 01403 276273

The Resident at the Races Competition Starts next Friday, May 20

This Sunday, catch the last of The Barnstormers Comedy nights as the series of Sunday night stand up shows comes to an end (for now). A group of first class comedians descend on Horsham’s Capitol in The Barnstormers Comedy show for the evening, which is compered by resident host Kevin Precious. Funny man Kevin usually kicks off the proceedings with an introductory set (often involving his audience), and hosts the evening by introducing each act. Many of the comedians are from the London circuit and the standard is always high, humouring the crowd with their own material, most of which is impressively spontaneous. Originally established in East Sussex, the Barnstormers popularity has seen it touring across the South and nationally. It’s not for sensitive types, and includes a lot of adult humour. But if you can handle that, it’s a terrific way to spend a Sunday evening and forget you’ve got to go back to work the next day. Tickets are £10 in advance or £12 on the night. To book call the Box Office on 01403 750220 or visit www. thecapitolhorsham .com for tickets and dates.

Eat and exercise yourself beautiful Julia Martin Health & Lifestyle

julia.martin@the-resident.co.uk

Enter the superfoods! According to the latest research, we can all eat ourselves beautiful by selecting optimum health-giving and antiageing superfoods. The natural ingredients boost our immune systems and protect us from the free radicals which have a dramatic effect on the ageing process. The search for eternal youth has been given a boost by this research as it gives us an easy and enjoyable way to stay looking and feeling younger without expensive creams, radical procedures or surgery. Who would have thought the humble kiwi fruit could pack such a

punch, but this little green hairy fruit can  help us battle with the wrinkles along with the best of them. Each furry fruit contains more potassium than a banana and more vitamin C than an orange. Potassium aids with the elasticity in your skin – often damaged by smoking – and vitamin C is great for cell-repairing. Recent studies indicate that the kiwi is the most nutritionally dense fruit, richer in minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants than any other. It is also rich in vitamin E, another vitamin that is great for your skin and contains as much fibre as a bowl of All Bran which helps to purge your body of toxins. Next on the list are blueberries and these little purple fruits are packed with  bioflavonoids which strengthen your blood vessels and prevent

leakage and breaking. Recent tests on rats also show blueberries reduce cholesterol and decrease the absorption of fats too, particularly around the abdomen, Bring it on! Combine  these fruits with a diet rich in eggs, spinach, broccoli and bananas and you are onto a winning formula for more youthful skin and body. Read our article about the value of sleep and you will reap further rewards. With longer days, we are able to turn our attention to exercise again and start that fitness regime we may have abandoned over the Winter. Have you noticed the amount of runners of all ages and sizes which seem to be pounding the streets of Horsham? I am full of admiration, especially for those who run in the morning and

‘Tree stories’ return to Horsham Park this month The programme of tree walks in Horsham Park, which proved to be so popular last year, is to start again this month. This year, evening walks are added to the programme to allow working people to participate. The first walks will be conducted on Wednesday evening (18 May) and Thursday morning (19 May) and start from Horsham Park bandstand (access is via the rear of Park House in North Street, Horsham) — see below for the full programme. There are over 40 different varieties of native and imported trees in the park and it’s a perfect place to learn to identify the different species. The free to attend Horsham Park tree walks take place during the summer, last up to 1½ hrs and are led by Michael McCabe, tree warden with Denne

Neighbourhood Council. Speaking recently, Michael said: “Trees are something we tend to take for granted; like the sea or the sky, they’ve always been there. “While we can appreciate their beauty, we might not be aware of the many other different ways in which they contribute to our society, our environment, and our history.” Horsham Park’s tree walks, or “Tree Stories”, are a light hearted way of exploring those aspects, as well as providing fresh air, light exercise and the basics of tree identification. The walks are part of the wider programme of Horsham District Council’s Health Walks scheme. Further information about all health walks is available online at www.horsham.gov.uk or by calling 01403 215269.

then emerge perfectly groomed for work after a quick shower. I just could not do this without looking dishevelled and red in the face. I have a friend who runs and her perfect ponytail flicks back and forth in perfect timing as she maintains a perfect pace and timing. Respect! I am embarking on swimming again and trying to fit it into my busy schedule can be a  bit of a problem. Last week I arrived at the changing room to disrobe and discovered I had picked up my teenage daughter’s itsy bitsy bikini. I heaved a sigh of nostalgia as I looked at the bits of dental floss making up the garment and then made a hasty beeline for the reception sales area to purchase another rather expensive swimsuit. Maybe if I eat enough blueberries I will one day be able to wear such an item again. No.

Janine Lowe, our feng shui expert, gives us her advice this week. As always we talk about clutter, ensure you do not have piles of paperwork in front of you as this will hinder your view of the future. If you have clutter behind you it will be like carrying it on your back so you will feel weighed down with your workload. File everything neatly beside you. Let the chi flow through your desk so there will be no blockages in your career decisions. Place your phone to the right of your desk, a light to the right of your desk, if you want a photo of your family or a vase of flowers (change the water daily to encourage positive chi) place it to the left. Place your diary and in-tray to the left of your desk to encourage positive chi. Your desk drawers should be decluttered regularly, that odd paper clip or those staples should be disposed of now...

Emma’s Dilemmas

Dear Emma, I have been friends with a girlfriend of mine for about 6 years now, but recently I have noticed a real edge of jealousy to her behaviour. I am happily married with children, a nice house and am very settled but of course not without all the normal day to day problems. Her life is rather more volatile than my own. Just lately I am getting really barbed comments about my life and her behaviour has become really odd, almost like she is trying to be me?

Am I being paranoid? I don’t think so. What do I do to get her to back off a bit, but not fall out with her long term? N Backerford

Dear N, Oh dear, that is SO tricky. I think we have all been in situations with friends where our circumstances perhaps make us grow apart somewhat. Perhaps at the moment your two lives are at different stages and she is finding your relative peace and

harmony quite difficult to watch. With all that said, it is not fair of her to take her feelings out on you, she should rather be celebrating your happiness and leaning on you in a more honest and less hostile way. Sometimes in situations like this the best option is for both parties to create a bit of distance between each other. Sometimes you get so wrapped up in your own problems, that you can’t see that you are actually taking them out on someone you care about. I think perhaps that is happening

to your friend at the moment. Perhaps a bit of well placed time apart (although it is advisable to not make a big thing of this at this time, quite simply withdraw quietly!) will give her the time and space she needs. Not only to get her problems sorted out without your happiness being thrust upon her so frequently, but also she will more than likely miss you and your counsel a great deal and realise that you have perhaps been under appreciated of late and re-evaluate her behaviour towards you. Emma

” How to look as good as Sleeping Beauty... minus the Sleep Amy Jones Health & Lifestyle

We have very recently welcomed a little puppy into our family home. She is very cute and so much fun to play with, but she’s made me realise just how tiring looking after a puppy can be. We have likened the experience to looking after a teething, potty training toddler as she chews just about everything in sight, has little accidents around the house and cries during the night. I consider myself rather lucky as I can’t hear her high pitched yelps and squeals from my bedroom, but my poor parents are directly above her and have taken to wearing earplugs to drown out the noise. They haven’t had an undisturbed night’s sleep since we got the puppy and they are exhausted, yet are still managing to be relatively jolly during the day. I don’t know how they’re doing it! I have always needed at least seven hours sleep a night in order to function during the day and my first waking thought as I turn my alarm off is always, without fail, “I can’t wait to go to bed tonight”.  As we live in a society full of worriers and workaholics, doctors are constantly being asked advise on how to achieve a good night’s sleep and I’m sure we’ve all heard the old gems before: drink warm milk... have a warm bath... don’t eat too late... take all electronic items out of your room...which are all well and good, but from time to time there are nights (puppy or no puppy) when we simply cannot drift off.  Sleep is vital for not only brain function but also for looking your best, so when we don’t get enough sleep our skin can take on a rather grey tinge and bags and dark circles under eyes become more pronounced. As I am currently interning within the beauty department of a glossy monthly magazine, I am constantly coming across a variety of products

designed to hide the tell tale signs of a restless night so I thought I would share some of my favourite products and tips:    For dull, tired looking skin try Liz Earle’s Brightening Treatment Mask. Apply in the morning after a bad night’s sleep, leave for 1 minute and wash off using the muslin cloth that comes with it and skin will instantly look fresher and more radiant.

always needed ‘atI have least seven hours sleep a night ’

If you team this with Burt’s Bees Radiance Toner (£9.99) your skin will glow. (Annoyingly) Neither Liz Earle nor Burt’s Bees  products are available to buy from shops in Horsham, but you can order them online at www.uk.lizearle.com. and www. iloveburt.com. In my opinion YSL completely dominates the market when it comes to under eye concealing as Touche Eclat really is a hero product. However, if you can’t justify spending almost £25 on a concealer, there are some cheaper alternatives that will also do a very good job of disguising those dark circles. At £15, Clinique’s Airbrush Concealer (available at our very own Boot’s) is very similar to Touche Eclat and is a very effective highlighting tool, one that I have been using for a while now. I would also recommend Bourjois’ Brush Concealer as I think it’s a bargain at £7.49.  Wearing a bright colour on your lips can often attract attention away from tired looking eyes. There are a variety of bright colours in BarryM’s Lip Paint collection and as they cost under £5 each, why not get a couple? So, the next time you have a rough night your colleagues will be none the wiser, although napping at your desk might give it away, just a little.

Now that spring is in full swing Neil Moore of Guy Leonard & Company comments on how the property market is responding to the warmer weather Here at Guy Leonard & Co we have been busy with Springwatch. This isn’t the BBC wildlife show. Instead we have been actively watching for those signs that the spring property market has burst into life. While our hedgerows have been in glorious blossom and many of our woodlands thick with bluebells the market too has been showing clear signs of new life. But this is not all down to the seasonally warm weather. Despite continuing difficulties with mortgages and nervousness about the economy and employment, buyers, especially in the middle market sector, have failed to be put off and numbers of viewings over the past few weeks have been rising steadily. This always augurs well for sales and we anticipate that after a glorious Easter in most parts of the UK, and the royal wedding, there will be even greater activity throughout May. But what is really needed right now is some more property coming onto the market. Would-be sellers are being a little reticent. Consequently there is not so much stock at the

moment and buyers would certainly like a little more choice. Normally this would point to a sellers’ market. But, while active, buyers are also being cautious, and are not exactly rushing to buy. They are taking their time before making offers, they are fully investigating the market and are steering away from any property that smacks of being overpriced. All this has produced a balanced market with prices generally neither going up nor down – although there are exceptions. Which way the pendulum will swing – towards rising or falling prices – only the next few months will tell. We should be able to tell you much more by the time we are into Autumnwatch. In the meantime enjoy a summer with a property market that is putting few under heavy pressure to buy or sell. But sellers should still beware of being a little too optimistic with price. Buyers are not in the mood, and we should always remember that property is only worth what someone will pay for it.

Q A

What is the benefit of using a ‘Home Genie’ before placing my home on the market?

The answer to this one is simple, when you are marketing your home for sale it is common sense that you will want to present your property in the best possible light in order to maximise your chances of selling at the best possible price! Perhaps the question should be ‘What possible reason is there not to use the Home Genie? The key difference of our Home Genie service is that our business partner, Tracey Bailey had been running an established interior design company for many years before we decided to launch a new independent Estate Agency in Horsham. Introducing professional interior design to the domestic property market was to us a logical step. Many agents will profess that presentation advice forms part of their service but I would challenge that, from my experience many agents avoid discussing presentation for fear of alienating themselves to the customer and losing business, after all our homes are the most personal areas of our lives and we are rightly very protective of them. We take a much more proactive view, explaining to our clients upfront that the way in which we live our private lives is not always the best way to present our homes for sale! Tracey has years of experience in optimising furniture layouts and designing interiors to broaden the appeal of a property to the widest audience possible. Whilst a lot of what she does is common sense, it is often difficult for us to critically review our own homes so having an interior designer offer impartial and constructive advice can only be a positive thing? Finally, what about cost, surely this must come at a high price? All of our clients at Munslow Bailey Gray benefit from a free Home Genie consultation and report, it is part of our service that makes us unique as a property consultancy! Tracey will visit your home and offer her advice as to any adjustment that can be made to improve its appeal to potential purchasers, often at no cost at all! As a seasoned agent myself I have to admit that interior design is not my strongest skill, which is why I rely upon Tracey to advise our clients, after all she is the interior designer and has produced many stunning interiors throughout her career, which makes her the obvious choice to advise on the interior presentation of your home If you would like further information please contact Munslow Bailey Gray on 01403 267530 or log on to their web site at www.mbgproperties.com

Baby Vader Passat advert goes live Olli Nott Motors Reporter

olli@the-resident.co.uk

It’s an advertising campaign which needs little explanation: a young boy, dressed as Darth Vader, attempts to use ‘the force’ to bring to life everyday objects from around the house and garden. The force does not seem strong with this one… until a timely intervention by his father via the Volkswagen Passat’s remote key fob occurs. The lights flash, the doors lock – and faith is restored in the young Jedi’s powers. A US version of the advertisement was aired during the Super Bowl XLV earlier in the year and was heralded as one of the finest moments of the event. It also became an internet sensation, with over 37 million hits on YouTube. I account for about 1 million of those and my young Star Wars fan neighbour, Ryan, watches it around 15 times a day!

Now it’s the turn of the UK. Eagleeyed spectators will have seen it played on the screens erected for the Royal Wedding in Hyde Park on Friday April 29th, and the advert has been shown on UK television from May the Fourth. The campaign will run for six weeks. Responsible for the campaign in the UK is Volkswagen’s Communications Manager, Danny Hill. He

comments: ‘It’s a charming ad with great music and has the universal appeal of Star Wars.’ He adds: ‘It captures the imagination and ties in well with our message about the Passat’s clever technology. It was such a success in the States that it seemed a shame not to share it with a wider UK audience.’ The seventh generation Passat went on sale in the UK in

January. For more details head to www.volkswagen.co.uk/passat To view the advert, go to the Volkswagen UK Facebook page. Here you can also see an interview with the star of the ad and outtake clips from the ‘making of’ the advertisement: www.facebook.com/volkswagenuk – Well worth watching! What do you think? Is the force strong with this one?

Lifestyle Mazda puts safety first with free checks A fundamental part of safe driving is ensuring a vehicle’s brakes are in good working order and the tyres meet the legal limit, that’s why Horsham’s Lifestyle Mazda, at the Bishopric, is offering its customers a FREE Brake and Tyre Check. The implications of unsafe brakes and tyres are severe, so for Mazda drivers in Horsham this is an opportunity not to be missed. Take advantage of the Brake and Tyre Check and a specially trained Mazda technician will visually inspect the condition of the brake components, check the handbrake and brake fluid. To ensure the tyres meet the legal requirements, a complete inspection of the tyre condition and the tyre tread depth will be carried out. The wheels will also be examined for damage. Once all the assessments are complete, Lifestyle will provide a full report to identify if the car has any brake or tyre damage. “It is important to check your brakes at least once a year to ensure

the driver and passengers are safe. Aside from the obvious result of an accident, regular brake inspections could help prevent costly bills for more severe damage. It’s important to note the penalties for driving a car with dangerous brakes, or tyres below the legal tread limit of 1.6mm are severe. Drivers can face a fine of £2,500 and receive three penalty points,” commented Alan Anderson, Lifestyle Europe Group Service Director. All Mazda models are equipped with host of features to ensure optimum safety on the road for all occupants. Even so, its vital drivers regularly check the brakes and tyres on their vehicle. Tyres under the legal 1.6mm tread limit can have a significant effect on the car’s performance. They have reduced grip in the rain and require a longer stopping distance. Poorly inflated tyres are incredibly unsafe, as they are prone to overheating and can adversely affect steering, thus increasing the chances of an accident. To find out more about the Mazda

Brake and Tyre Check, please call Lifestyle Europe on 0844 826 4135 or visit the showroom on 53 - 55 Bishopric, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 1QJ . Lifestyle customers can also use the company’s website – www.lifestyleeurope.co.uk - which gives motorists their own personal portal to make priority service bookings, arrange courtesy cars and even talk instantly, online, to an assistant based at Lifestyle about any queries they have with a vehicle. So come to Lifestyle Europe for all your motoring needs. The company has dealerships in Sussex, Surrey and Kent, with a whole host of facilities available. Lifestyle Europe offers full Servicing and Accident Repair Facilities, the entire new Ford, Mazda, Renault, Subaru and Isuzu range on site and available to Test Drive - plus a wide selection of late registration, low mileage used cars and used vans. Their fully trained team of staff are on hand to assist with any questions or queries you may have. For the full list of showrooms, visit www.lifestyleeurope.co.uk

Roffey Robins U10 were crowned champions of the East Grinstead tournament. Quick passing football saw Roffey defeat Ashurst Wood Tornados 5-0 before beating Lingfield 1-0 and Ifield 2-1. An under-par performance resulted in a 1-0 defeat to East Grinstead, but Robins finished top of their group. Roffey defeated Maidenbower 1-0 in the semi-final, Callum Jeal smashing home the winner after great work by Max Furber. Ashurst Wood Harriers were unbeaten in the tournament going into the final, but Roffey took control from the first whistle and Kris Bicknell finished off a great move just before half time. Not to be outdone by his twin brother, Alex Bicknell fired in a second to make his mum cry with excitement. Roffey Robins squad: Harry Powling, Ben Harrison, Pat Gibbs, Reece Church, Callum Jeal, Kris Bicknell, Max Furber, Alex Bicknell.

Brands test for Vernon Matthew James Sport Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

Kieran Vernon this weekend returns to the scene of one of his greatest triumphs as he follows in the footsteps of Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen. The 21-year-old from West Chiltington is testing at Brands Hatch today (Friday) ahead of qualifying tomorrow and two races in the Formula Renault BARC series on Sunday. Last September, the former Steyning Grammar School pupil won both Formula Palmer Audi races at Brands in sensational style. He told The Resident: “I came second at Donington in the first race this season, which was really good considering I hadn’t tested the car at all. “Brands Hatch is a different track with a lot more tight corners, but hopefully I will be up there. I’ll be disappointed if I’m not in the top five and I’m hoping to get a podium finish in both races. “It’s probably one of my favourite tracks. Last year I won both races there in Formula Palmer Audi, with two pole positions, the fastest lap in both races and a lap record. “I’d really like to thank Jonathan Palmer for all his support and encouragement. “This year, ideally I’d like to win the Renault BARC championship and

Young, goodlooking and quick to boot Kieran Vernon is a sponsor’s dream – a young, good-looking motor racing driver. Oh, and he’s quick too. Very quick. But motor racing is an expensive sport and he needs help to continue his impressive progress in the Renault BARC series and in the Porsche Carrera Cup. He said: “The budget is quite tight and I haven’t got enough money to go testing between races, so I really have to up my game to make sure I’m on the pace.” You could make the car yours for the season, with your logo and name on virtually the whole car, helmet and racing overalls, at the circuits, on the web and social media, with TV and media coverage of every race plus hospitality opportunities. Or take a smaller panel for your name and logo, sponsor a race and take advantage of hospitality on race days. Vernon is hugely grateful to West Chiltington Golf Club, which already supports the talented racer in a big way. Anyone else who is interested in sponsorship or another business relationship can contact him via The Resident – matthew@the-resident. co.uk

hopefully do well in the Porsche Carrera Cup. It’s going to be very tough, but it’s got to be my aim, especially after coming second at Donington.” Vernon, who also attended West Chiltington Primary School and Rydon Community College, Storrington, is aiming for the top. He added: “I would like to be a professional racing driver one day. I’d like to race in Formula 1, Le Mans and

Indy in America. “Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen raced in Formula Renault, so it does provide some decent drivers.” His ambition is supported by the British Racing Drivers Club, which has made him one of its Rising Stars in the last three years. Formula 1 ace Hamilton and Indy star Dan Wheldon were previously recognised in the same way.

Southwater’s Rory Cooper raced in the 750 Motor Club series at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire. For the second successive race, Rory’s hopes of a podium were dashed after a red flag incident – this time involving Craig Bell who crashed heavily at The Gooseneck. As in the previous race at Brands Hatch, Rory had been running fourth when the race was stopped. Both races were restarted after long hold-ups while repairs to the barriers were made and drivers recovered. We arrived at Cadwell late on Friday and prepared the car on Saturday ready for a short test session on Sunday, the morning of the race. On Sunday we awoke to heavy rain. Cadwell is not the best place in the world to be racing in very wet conditions, with short run-off areas and surrounded in the main by trees which keep any dispersed water in the air, hampering vision. Nevertheless we had a positive test and Rory responded when it came to qualifying by placing himself sixth on the grid, so we were quite happy. The race came in better weather conditions and Rory made a great start, overtaking Jake Farnden going into the first corner and another car later on the first lap. Rory was running tight to thirdplaced Matt Digby while the top-five cars had pulled out a good lead over the rest of the 32. On the third lap, Bell tried to dive up the inside of Terry Botting, got it all wrong, clipped Terry’s front wing, spun and careered at full speed across wet grass and into a marshalls’ post. Bell was not injured, but with three laps or fewer completed the cars returned to their original grid positions and Rory’s hard work was lost. With the car very hot after sitting on the grid in the sun for nearly 10 minutes, the restart was not what we wanted and Rory lost two places. Rory fought back to seventh and was closing on sixth when a second red flag resulted in the race being concluded. A bit to sort for the next race, at Snetterton on May 21-22, but we’ll be there.

Palmer flies through GP2 field Southwater race ace Jolyon Palmer made an impressive start to his inaugural GP2 season in Turkey, securing a top-10 finish after making up eight places. The 20-year-old, son of former Formula 1 driver Jonathan, battled from 17th on the grid at Istanbul to finish just shy of the points in his first Main Series event. Palmer, who narrowly missed out on the FIA Formula Two Championship title last year, also impressed as the top rookie driver in qualifying – despite having not previously raced at the track. He endured a difficult Race 1, finishing a frustrating 17th after sustaining damage to his car’s front nose. This result determined his start position for Race 2. Palmer, who races for Arden International in the Formula 1 feederseries, said: “We had a solid first weekend where as a team we learnt a huge amount. “I had a disappointing first race where I lost time avoiding a crash and then damaged my front wing early on, forcing me to pit for a new nose. “After this I just had a lonely race as the pit stop took a long time, but my pace was good which was encouraging. “In Race 2 I had some clutch issues early on, but I managed my tyres and held position. For some reason I was also suffering with straight-line speed and was a sitting duck on the straights. “As the race wore on though, I started moving through the field to 11th. The safety car period didn’t help because my car was feeling good, but on the final lap I managed to gain two further places to finish ninth and end a solid weekend. “Hopefully in Spain (May 20-22) I can get some solid points on a track I know.”
