Many car parking charges in Horsham – including most at Swan Walk – are set to rise by 25 per cent and others by as much as 50 per cent. But the district council’s leader has dismissed suggestions that the increases will hit hard-pressed traders by putting off potential visitors to the town. Cllr Robert Nye told The Resident: “All of the surveys very clearly show that the public are not focused on the actual cost of parking, unless it is exceptional in relation to the surrounding towns. “People are looking for good-quality parking, easy to access without driving around trying to find a space. That’s far more important than the increase in prices. “In comparison to other towns, you will find we will be highly competitive even after the parking increases. “When you look at how much we’re putting the charges up, it will cost you more in petrol to go to Crawley. The increases

It will consult with West Sussex County Council and Metrobus, but the change is likely to mean users of the park and ride will pay a commercial rate when they get on a bus. Other proposals include reducing discretionary rate relief by £50,000, while the council saves £500,000 from “rationalisation and efficiencies and by sharing services with other authorities”. A council statement said: “In facing the current economic climate and ongoing cuts in government grant, significant progress has been made by the council to be as efficient as possible. In the last five years it has saved £7 million while maintaining

On Wednesday, the Conservativedominated council is expected to endorse proposals to: • Increase parking charges at Swan Walk from £1.60 to £2 for up to two hours, £2.40 to £3 (three hours), £3.20 to £4 (four), £4 to £5 (five), £4.80 to £6 (six) and £6.40 to £7 (eight). More than eight hours will stay at £10. • Increase charges at Hurst Road from £1 to £1.50 (two hours), £1 to £2 (three) and £2 to £3 (four). Up to five hours will stay at £4. • Increase charges at Piries Place by between 20p and 80p, at Denne Road by between 20p and 60p, and at the council’s offices by between 20p and 60p. • Increase almost all charges at BT, The Forum, London Road, New Street and North Parade by 10p and some at Horsham Library by 20p. • Increase most charges for five-day and quarterly tickets by five to eight per cent, for example adding £15.10 to a quarterly ticket at Swan Walk. Council chiefs plan to allocate £130,000 of the expected extra income to fund new parking machines, car park cleaning and lighting improvements and a parking customer

survey, but most of it will help cut the council’s budget from April next year. The district council is also poised to axe its £70,000 subsidy for the Hop Oast park and ride as part of a plan to save £1.3 million – 10 per cent of its net budget.

services. “The council has also kept council tax amongst the lowest in the country over this period and has introduced the successful Acorn Plus refuse and recycling household collection service. “Owing to the council’s financial efficiency, it is also already spending considerably less than other local councils at £96.66 per Horsham district resident per year, compared with an average of £131.82 per head for West Sussex district councils and £142.53 for all district councils in the country. “Even within this context and like many other councils in the country, Horsham District Council’s budget for next year (2012/3) is under significant pressure.”

I don’t think the ‘average resident is

going to notice very much difference

Cllr Nye said: “We are taking steps to ensure we maintain and improve the quality of our services against a backdrop of ever-reducing government grant while keeping council

tax down. We had already committed to a second year with no council tax increase before the Chancellor announced his intention to help councils do so and we welcome his help. “We have identified most of the steps that are needed to close our budget gap next year and we will continue to consider ways we can complete the exercise during the Autumn. “Looking beyond 2012, we are preparing plans for more significant changes to the organisation and the way we deliver services and to generate our own resources through imaginative uses of our property assets. “These plans will take time and resources to deliver but will ensure we can meet the major financial challenges we will face in the medium term and beyond.” Conservative councillor Ray Dawe, deputy leader of the council, stressed: “There’s no real soft option. It has been more and more difficult to dream up ideas.” Cllr Dawe, the council’s Cabinet member for efficiency and taxation, added: “I don’t think the average resident is going to notice very much difference at all.” Cllr Nye chipped in: “Unless they park their car.” The full council agenda is available online at files/Agenda_111019.pdf

Car park plans are ‘half baked’ The leader of Horsham’s Liberal Democrats has questioned whether Tory councillors understand the financial pressure on residents. Cllr David Holmes told The Resident: “Liberal Democrats welcome the early information about proposed budget cuts. “This gives all councillors and the community nearly four months during which the suggestions can be carefully considered. “Are they the best way to tackle the

present financial difficulties and is the impact on the community acceptable? We will be looking at this. “Having this time for sensible consideration of the budget proposals makes the plan to agree the substantial rise in parking charges at the council meeting on October 19 totally unacceptable and unreasonable. “The report justifies the parking increases in terms of providing ‘the highest quality of user experience’. Do Conservatives understand the

impact of the current financial situation on many families? “Most costs are increasing, employment is uncertain, people are getting poorer. At this time of real financial hardship, do the public want ‘a superior customer experience’ and ‘backlit advertising’ or do they want affordable parking? “Our car parks and our town centre are not competing with other towns but with free supermarket car parks and internet shopping. “Even councillors who sit on the committee that considered parking charge options are shocked. They did not expect a 25 per cent increase,

Sunday charging and evening charging. “Proposals that could have a huge impact on the town require more careful consideration than a week’s notice. “Clearly the proposals are halfbaked. While moving towards short and long-term parking charges is sensible, having five different charges for parking for three hours across the different town centre car parks is not. “The council already raises over £2 million a year from car-parking fees. Some of this income should have been used for maintaining them to a decent standard.”

Horsham on


We asked the 7,000+ members of the Horsham Facebook page what they thought of the car parking charge increases.

Here are a few of their comments... Mandy Jones With everyone watching their money at the moment this couldn’t happen at a worse time... Diane Tullett I agree! Could put people off shopping so local businesses will suffer! I will think twice before going into town... won’t be popping in as often that’s for sure, can’t afford to! Lois McGilligan Do they actually want people to shop in Horsham? disgraceful. Sam Burge And how many Horsham residents had a 25% pay increase this year to be able to afford this!?


Delivery man in ‘crushing’ horror Superdrug has issued a statement about a serious incident at the back of the Swan Walk shopping centre, Horsham. A man in the area told The Resident that a delivery man had been crushed by a cage or crate at about 8.45am on Wednesday. Paramedics put up screens around the injured man near a Superdrug lorry before the Sussex air ambulance landed in Horsham Park at about 9.30am. In the event, the helicopter was not needed. The man, aged about 40, was

taken by land ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, suffering from leg, arm and abdominal injuries. They were not thought to be life-threatening. A Superdrug spokesman said: “We can confirm there was an incident at our Horsham store concerning one of our delivery drivers. “The health and safety of our customers and colleagues is always our primary concern. At this time our priority is the wellbeing of our colleague and we will be offering any help we can to aid his recovery.”

Brother found hanging in garage The chairman of a school’s governors was found hanging after suffering from an injury sustained in his childhood, an inquest heard. Richard Sweet was found dead in the garage of his home at Mallard Way, Henfield, in February 2010 – nine days before what would have been his 52nd birthday. The retired IT consultant, who was chairman of governors at St Peter’s Primary School, Henfield, had been a Scout leader and involved with a

theatre company in Brighton. Brother John Sweet, who made the grim discovery, said Richard Sweet had been suffering from a jaw injury sustained in a football match during his schooldays. John Sweet told the inquest at Horsham Magistrates’ Court: “In mid-December, 2009, I had a phone call from my brother, saying he was in excruciating pain and wasn’t coping at all. “I went down (from Wokingham)

to see him and that was the start of where we are today. “He was getting progressively worse. He did start making suicidal comments to me. If he was eating anything it was soup because to chew was painful. He was very low and saw no prospect of any change. “He was getting more and more exhausted. He had very poor sleep but was always noticeably better when he’d had a decent night.” Coroner Christopher Wilkinson


Fran Jones Sadly internet shopping is the future and this is yet another big push in that direction. A very disappointing step. Julie Wallace I think it will encourage more Sunday trading as parking is free.

Garry Mortimer-Cook I think Horsham parking will still be cheaper than Crawley (County Mall is currently £2.50 minimum for two hours and £2 all day on Sundays).


Cat Ross Just what our little town and its residents need during a recession. Well done Horsham. Andrew Waller This is not good news for those of us who live in the surrounding streets and can’t park because they are now used as free public car parks (even though we have to pay for an annual residents’ permit!)

said a note addressed to “John” had been left in a pocket of Richard Sweet’s jacket. The coroner did not read out the note, but he said in court: “In my view the note is relatively clear in what it is saying. It is a relatively detailed note.” Mr Wilkinson said a post mortem showed the cause of death was asphyxia due to hanging, but the inquest was continuing as The Resident went to press.

Man gambled away £300k after conning 80-year-old A conman has been sentenced to almost five years in prison for a systematic and heartless fraud on an 80-year-old West Chiltington man. Joseph James Smith, 33, of Nutbourne Road, Pulborough, was convicted of an offence of fraud by false representation and four money laundering offences. He was sentenced to four years and 10 months for the fraud and one year for each of the money laundering offences, to run concurrently alongside the fraud sentence. Operation Woodburn was a large and complex investigation by Sussex detectives into the fraud that took place over a 10-month period from April 2009. The victim, who was living alone and suffering from mild dementia, received a leaflet through his front door advertising roofing and gardening work. A week later, Smith came to his door informing him he needed work done to his roof. The victim agreed to the work and was asked for £8,000

up front. Smith also asked the man to invest in business projects, saying he would get his money back and receive a percentage of the profits, but these businesses never existed. The victim handed over money for several months – a total of about £460,000 – as Smith invented stories and continued to ask him for cash.

This was one of the ‘most heartless and

vicious frauds I have ever encountered

Smith told the victim he also needed a new roof, costing £50,000, but agreed to do this for £25,000 to £30,000 because he had invested so much money into the businesses. Police were eventually alerted by family members, who realised that the once-wealthy victim no longer

had any money. Smith was arrested after searches across West Sussex. Several new and expensive cars were seized and two of these will be auctioned for the victim. The investigation revealed that Smith had gambled away much of the stolen money, staking well over £300,000 with minimal winnings. After Smith was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court, Det Con Barry Collyer said: “This was one of the most heartless and vicious frauds I have ever encountered. “Smith ruthlessly targeted this vulnerable elderly man, preying on his honest character and systematically defrauding him of vast amounts of money for nearly a year. “We were very glad to have been able to bring him to justice. We were also able to confiscate two cars immediately, which will enable some money to go directly back to the victim. “We renew our advice to householders, especially the elderly, not to make any financial commitment to

cold callers. “If they persist, seek advice and support from neighbours and family or even legal advice. You can also contact your local trading standards team or police if you think criminal activity may be involved.”

News in Brief Museum robbery Robbers fled with thousands of pounds after hitting an employee at the Amberley Open Air Museum. The robbery happened at about 9.30pm on Sunday when a 43-yearold male employee was attacked by two men who forced him to open the restaurant safe. They ran off towards Houghton, dropped a small quantity of cash and may have got into a white car. The employee suffered bruising but did not need hospital treatment. No weapons were involved in the robbery. The raiders, who wore dark clothing, were carrying dark carrier bags or bags of a similar type. One is about 5ft 10in and of chunky build. Det Insp Jo Banks said: “Anyone who saw these men running away or getting into a car is asked to contact us via 0845 6070999, quoting serial 1428 of October 9.”

Bathroom horror An 84-year-old man was impaled on a shower pole, spearing his armpit, before suffering 20 per cent burns to his back and arms. The man, who lives alone, told firefighters he had been calling for help for about an hour before a neighbour heard him and raised the alarm. The gruesome incident happened at a house in Bines Road, Partridge Green, at about 10.30am on Sunday. Firefighters eventually managed to cut free the man and he was taken by air ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

GBH charges Three men have been charged following an attack on a 29-year old local man in the Pavilions leisure centre car park, Horsham, on July 23. Luke Talbot, 20, and Max Talbot, 22, both of St Christopher’s Close, Horsham, and Jason Engleby, 19 of Bostock Avenue, Horsham, are accused of causing grievous bodily harm with intent. They are due to appear at Mid Sussex Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, October 20.

Ex-England star in Horsham

News in Brief

Former England international Darren Anderton helped raised thousands of pounds at a charity football match. The former Portsmouth and Tottenham Hotspur winger played for a Spurs Legends team against Redhill company Jedris at Gorings Mead, Horsham. Other ex-Spurs stars in action included Tony Galvin, David Howells, Stuart Nethercott, Steve Slade, Mark Stimson and Clive Wilson. The event, which attracted a crowd of about 400, raised about £4,000 to be split between St Catherine’s Hospice and Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Most of the money came from admission charges, but a raffle and auction continued into Sunday evening after the match in the afternoon. The game ended in a 4-4 draw.

Schools in the Horsham area are being asked to sign up for a charity event, aimed at setting a world record for the most people signing and singing simultaneously. Steve Powell, chief executive of SignHealth, said: “Earlier this year, 94,489 children took part in our sign2sing 2011 event, including pupils from Horsham, and smashed the Guinness world records. The previous record was 13,418. “On February 8, 2012, we are once again inviting children to take part in the world record attempt for the most people signing and singing a song at the same time. “There are already more than 300 schools registered. We need a lot more schools if we are going to smash our current record and involve around 150,000 youngsters, so we are urging schools to get in touch now.” The event is designed to raise awareness of deafness and the work of SignHealth, as well as acting as a fundraiser through sponsorship from businesses and a suggested donation of £1 for everyone taking part. Mr Powell added: “Olli the monkey, who loves to sign, will feature in the training DVD that every registered school will receive to help them teach their students in a fun and engaging way.” For more information, contact SignHealth on 01494 687600 or visit

their early teens. Det Con Chris Smith told The Resident in March: “Leslie was a very determined and devious offender and we are glad our investigation has brought him to justice. “The four victims with whom he committed offences showed courage in making statements and supporting the prosecution, and would have given evidence in court had Leslie not pleaded guilty. “Leslie was manipulative and devious and ‘groomed’ his two local victims after befriending their parents. The case should also serve as a reminder to parents to remain aware of what their children are doing online.” A spokesman for Sussex Police this week told The Resident: “It is not our policy to comment on appeals.”


A Horsham man has seen his sentence cut after being jailed for 42 offences including child abuse and making indecent images of children. At Hove Crown Court in March, 27-year-old Carl Leslie, of Talbot Lane, was sentenced to an indeterminate term of imprisonment with a minimum of six and a half years. Leslie appealed against the sentence. At the Court of Appeal in London on Tuesday, the minimum term was reduced to five years less 112 days, the time he spent on remand. No order was made for costs. Leslie admitted the following sexual offences: • Nine of sexual activity with a child under the age of 13 • Six of sexual activity with a child under the age of 16 • One of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child under 13 • Two of inciting children under 16 to engage in sexual activity • Ten of making indecent images of children • Ten of possession of indecent images of children He was also convicted of four breaches of a previously courtimposed Sexual Offence Prevention Order (SOPO). Three other offences – one of breach of a SOPO, one of inciting a child under 16 to engage in sexual activity and one of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child under 16 – were taken into consideration. Leslie’s arrest followed an intelligence-led investigation by detectives

Energy prices have risen by 21 per cent since last year – £244 for the average household. But practical money-saving solutions will be explained at a home and business energy eco fair at County Hall North, Chart Way, Horsham, on Saturday, October 22 (10am to 4pm). Sheila Dale, of Greening Horsham, said: “With the global downturn and spending cuts biting, we are all likely to be feeling the pinch, so Greening Horsham’s energy eco fair couldn’t be more timely. “There’s a whole raft of initiatives out there to help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and see our bills fall, but they can seem pretty confusing. From the very simplest (and free) measures, like closing curtains or blinds at night, draft proofing and insulation, right up to installing solar panels on your roof to generate your own electricity, there are things absolutely everyone can do reduce their bills significantly. “The government bill on generation and payback tariffs for domestic solar PV installations – the money you get for creating your own electricity and selling it back to the National Grid – is to be reviewed next April. “It is predicted the tariffs will be reduced significantly, so now is certainly the time to consider PV installation. Whether you are considering any of these projects for your home or business, or just interested to find out more, the eco fair will give you the information you need brought together under one roof.” For more information, phone 07941 338169 or visit www.

News in Brief Steaming success A 1928 Foden steam wagon from Amberley Museum visited St Mary’s First School, Washington, to help youngsters who are studying transport. Museum marketing manager Kate Russell said: “I thoroughly enjoyed sharing the experience of steam with the children. It brought history to life for them as they could actually smell it. I was asked lots of interesting questions, some of which proved to be a bit tricky!”

Altitude trouble but David’s effort gives school big boost Southwater resident David Spreadbury-Troy is back safe and sound from India – but only just! Mr Spreadbury-Troy and a friend tried to scale Stok Kangri, Ladakh – more than 20,000ft. They followed all the recommended steps to cope with the altitude, but Mr Spreadbury-Troy failed to acclimatise fully and was short of breath. He believes the issue may be genetic. After 12 days at altitude, peaking at 17,200ft, he made the decision to

withdraw from the trek. Upon returning to the base town, he was examined by a doctor and found to have high blood pressure, a result of the high-altitude sickness. Following rest and medication and a return to sea level, his blood pressure returned to normal. He told The Resident: “Each day was a struggle breathing and it got progressively harder as we climbed. “It was made clear to me by the doctor that I had made the right

decision at the right time, but I am very happy with what I achieved and I had an amazing experience.” Mr Spreadbury-Troy, of Southwater Street, Southwater, raised more than £1,000 for the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee School, Horsham, and £400 for the Alzheimer’s Society. Carol Willard, deputy head of the

school, said: “We are delighted to accept the extremely generous donation from David on behalf of his sponsors and appreciate the huge effort he has made for our students. “We intend to use the money to develop a new sensory environment to enrich the educational experience of our learners.”

News in Brief Barking glad Girls from Farlington’s prep school, plus boys and girls in the nursery, produced a harvest assembly and helped raise £806 for Guide Dogs for the Blind. David Whyberd, from the charity, gave a moving talk – aided by Labrador Yarris, who contributed to proceedings with timely whimpers and a demonstration of his guiding skills. The money raised will go towards the training of a puppy.

A charity golf event at Cottesmore Golf and Country Club raised £4,000 for the Matt Hampson Foundation, which supports young people seriously injured through sport. Former rugby union star Hampson, who was paralysed while training with England U21, said: “It is great to be associated with such a successful and fun event. The money raised will make a great difference in the lives of those who find themselves injured through sport.” Justin Acres, managing director of Clearwater People Solutions and coach at Horsham Rugby Club, said: “I’m extremely proud to support the Matt Hampson Foundation. “I would like to thank all of the team captains for their generosity and support.”

Try-ing to raise money Kieran Harris, from Barns Green Rugby Club, will raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society when he runs the Barns Green Half Marathon on October 30. Anyone who donates to the cause can nominate fancy dress for him to run in, with the winner drawn on October 23. Mr Harris said: “My grandmother suffers from Alzheimer’s, which affects every aspect of her life and has also affected those around her who care for her. “My girlfriend’s grandfather suffered from dementia, which is another form of this debilitating disease, and he sadly passed away last year. “It would be great to raise money into research which can help people such as my grandmother and in memory of others who have struggled with this illness.” For more information or to donate, visit kieran-harris

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW A customer brought in a beautiful Star Sapphire and Diamond ring to me that was made for her a while ago in India, valued around £3000. “Iʼm bored with it”, she said. I noticed she, like most people, is now wearing white gold so I suggested having the ring Rhodium Plated. This is a process that turns yellow gold to white gold within an hour. This costs only £35.00 compared to the £800.00 it would have cost for a new mount.

It is easy to attack politicians. It is not so easy to balance competing claims when finances are tight, but in these difficult times that is precisely what we have to do. And that involves looking after the interests not just of those who have the sharpest elbows or the loudest voices but the silent majority as well. I have never liked the term ‘the Big Society’. It is the sort of clunky label that politicians are so fond of applying to otherwise common sense policies. However, clunky labels should not obscure the fact that if local communities work constructively together then they have the opportunity to take control of their own destiny, rather than be at the mercy of decisions taken by others. The irony is that the drive, ingenuity and determination of Caroline and her fellow campaigners is just what the Big Society needs! Make the most of life in the area with our

Minister ‘bored’ by cuts, claims bus campaigner

A government minister appeared ‘bored’ by discussion of cuts to bus services, a campaigner claimed this week. Caroline Collins said Nick Herbert, MP for Arundel and South Downs, was “visibly frustrated” while talking to Cowfold residents about the under-threat 86 bus service. Mr Herbert, who is also the policing and criminal justice minister, told The Resident it was a matter for West Sussex County Council but said he would continue to take up campaigners’ concerns. The 86 serves Horsham, Southwater, West Grinstead, Partridge Green, Shermanbury, Cowfold, Bolney, Ansty, Cuckfield including Warden Park School, and Haywards Heath including the Princess Royal Hospital. The service was one of more than 60 highlighted by The Resident in May as being recommended for removal in September or October. Almost half of the services originally listed – including the 86 – have been spared the axe until at least April next year. But the future of these services remains uncertain, so Mrs Collins, Dawn Jelley and Anita Casey, all from Cowfold, met Mr Herbert to express their concerns. Mrs Collins told The Resident: “Nick is a minister and as such he shocked us by

“He promised to contact MPs Henry Smith (Crawley), Nicholas Soames (Mid Sussex) and Peter Bottomley (Worthing

West) to advise them of our concerns for the threatened axing of our rural bus services, in the hope they would speak on our behalf. “He also promised to take the issue forward to the Secretary of State for Transport, Philip Hammond. “Dawn reminded him of his pre-election statements, when he spoke out in support of rural public transport, and I asked him put his name to an Early Day Motion in support of these services.

If you can not get to us at our shop, we can arrange home visits.


I was disappointed to read the long diatribe from Caroline Collins that you carried on the front page of The Resident (October 7). Caroline is a formidable campaigner who is to be congratulated for drawing attention to the importance of effective transport links for the villages in our district – and for being prepared to try to do something about it. However, I don’t think it helps her cause much to attack people who can and want to help identify solutions that work for local people. With the wholehearted backing of county councillor Lionel Barnard, fellow district councillor Jonathan Chowen and local MP Nick Herbert, I offered to work with Caroline and her group of campaigners and to help find a solution. As a result of Caroline’s campaign and the representations I and the other local elected representatives made, the initial recommendation to end public funding of the 86 bus service was withdrawn, giving the local community more time to explore the full range of options. I am organising a joint meeting on October 17 in Cowfold Village Hall with Cowfold and West Grinstead parish councils, Caroline and her campaigners and a team of five officers from West Sussex County Council, set up expressly to work with and help local communities. My hope is that at the end of this process we are able to put in place effective measures to ensure that the people of Cowfold are able to access the places they need to go.

Tories love attacking unions Maggie Thatcher was Maggie the Milk Snatcher – a byword for Tory penny-pinching cruelty. Francis Maude will go down in history as Maude the Pension Pilferer. If we let him get away with it. The government has already reneged on a solemn and binding undertaking (and such things are two a penny with politicians) to link pensions to increases in the cost of living. By sleight of hand they have invented a brand new measure of the cost of living and, surprise, it comes up with a lower figure than the retail price index. Far from sympathising with the pensioners, the privileged and pampered politicians are pinching their pennies. The government has refused to

negotiate in good faith with the public sector unions. They behave as though attacking the unions is more important than making a grown-up decision over public sector pensions. All of the teacher unions are acting together to lobby Parliament on October 26. This is where Maude’s union bashing has got him. Firstly the ATL, the most inoffensive and moderate of unions, has taken strike action for the first time. Now the secondary heads’ union, ACSL, is on the march. And if the Tory Party cannot depend on the ACSL they cannot depend on anybody. Maude should stop pretending to be a reincarnation of the blessed Margaret and remember her ignominious defeat over the poll tax. Derek McMillan Meadowgate, Horsham

Your Shout

Campaigner deserves support I would like to commend you on the lead article in The Resident (October 7). I would also like to congratulate Caroline Collins for highlighting the injustice of transport cutbacks to rural areas and the fact that our MP, Mr Nick Herbert, was lamenting the fact he had the same discussions with countless constituents That is what we pay you for, Nick, and why you got our votes at the last general election. I had meetings and correspondence with Mr N Herbert when his party were in opposition. He would not speak up then because he had a position in the Shadow Cabinet. Same old! And he would not sign Early Day Motions (EDMs). There was no problem opening garden fetes and patting babies’ heads or even getting the volume on train horns reduced or a photoshoot in every local paper every week. Votecatchers? According to your article, he is passing your/his 86 bus problem to MPs (Henry) Smith, (Nicholas) Soames and (Peter) Bottomley. They cannot do anything for you individually and cannot

speak up on your behalf in the House of Commons because you are not in their constituency. So that is a get-out line. In Sussex there are several MPs who have a portfolio. This means there are a lot of voters who cannot object to government policy through the House of Commons as their MP is compelled to tow the party line. Most of these ministers are in so-called ‘safe’ seats. Strange? Indeed, some of the MPs have been parachuted into these seats for that reason. Some of the MPs may not even be local to the area, never mind the constituency. Despite the leather-elbowed country jackets, they may live most of the week in the City, even though there is an excellent train service direct from Victoria (five minutes in ministerial car from the House of Commons) to the heart of the constituency. And they want to cut your number 86 bus service? I wish you luck with your campaign, C Collins. Maybe you, I and others should consider who we want to speak on our behalf next time there are safe seats for the taking in our House of Commons.

20 mph speed limits win votes media, such as web-based polls. Plus the winning manifestos of local political parties. Research conclusively shows that British people want slower speeds for their residential roads. The British Social Attitudes Survey, run for the Department of Transport, found “the majority (71 per cent) of respondents were in favour or strongly in favour of speed limits of 20 mph in residential streets”. Only 15 per cent were against.

Opinion surveys across the UK consistently show strong support for 20 mph limits without humps. This popular policy wins votes. These limits make real, quantifiable differences to people’s quality of life. Wide area 20 mph limits are fair and justified as popular and affordable. Evidence of 20 mph limit support comes from many sources – opinion surveys, local authority consultation responses and other

Bernard’s still chugging along I have been very interested to see the articles by Sam Allsop about the Steyning Line. Readers might be interested to know that the station master at Steyning in the 1920s was one Charles J Holden. His son, Bernard John Holden, was born at Barcombe station on March 15, 1908, when Charles was station master there. Bernard’s schooling was at Steyning Grammar School and he went on to join the Southern Railway, eventually rising to senior managerial positions on British Railways.

Bernard chaired the first meeting at Haywards Heath, on March 15, 1959, when the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society was formed. Bernard is still alive, having reached his 103rd birthday in March this year, and is the muchloved president of the Bluebell Railway Preservation Society. Since he was born at Barcombe, on the old East Grinstead and Lewes railway line, he can be said to have been involved with what has become the Bluebell Railway all his long life.

Forest pupils to the rescue for Cubs How does a Cub leader get 25 Cub Scouts through their science badge? Ask for the help of the Forest School. This was the predicament that faced Jackie Ward, leader of 1st and 9th Horsham Cubs, who said: “With little experience of running

science experiments, it has been pretty difficult for Cubs to achieve their science badge.” But with the help of Year 10 and Year 11 pupils from Forest, the Cubs completed a range of activities and experiments, from producing magnets by using

electrical currents to investigating the growing requirements of plants. And by the end of the evening all 25 had earned their scientist activity badge. Jane Green, Science teacher at Forest, said: “It was great to be

Winning entries in the Nature Photographer of the Year competition are on display in the Visitor Centre at Warnham Local Nature Reserve. The competition attracted well over 300 entries from Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Hampshire – and even one from Spain. Friends chairman Terry Slattery presented certificates and prizes to overall winner Alex Winser plus category winners Angela La Roux, Mike Rowe, John Wilks and 14-year-old Aniera Sanchez Farino. Their work and other photos will be displayed at the reserve until at least December. Certificates were also presented to those who finished second and third, as well as to 15 highly commended runners-up. Recent public events have included pond dipping and a walk around the reserve at dusk, while members enjoyed a bat walk and a moth night. Feed the Birds Day, October 30, will include contributions from the RSPB local group and the Friends, together with a display of optics by

Astronomia of Dorking. The annual Fungus Foray with Professor Maurice Moss is scheduled for November 13. In view of the popularity of the Christmas wreath-making workshop last year, two events have been organised this year – morning and afternoon sessions on December 13. Advance booking is required. The reed-bed growth outside the Tern Hide has been cleared. This is now a preferred spot for Greylag and Canada Geese to gather, just outside the hide windows, and it is hoped the area will be favoured by other species.

The other side of bankers Staff at Barclays, in the Carfax, Horsham, have helped raise thousands of pounds for charity by supporting two events. Bank workers joined supporters of Canine Partners on a stall outside the branch before welcoming Barclays employee Matt Hunt into town during one of his five marathons in five days.

More than £3,000 was raised for the charity, including matched funding by Barclays. The branch raised £1,620 for Macmillan Cancer Support, contributing to the West Sussex team total of £12,000, by staging a coffee morning and supporting a Zumba event at The Forest School.

A red hot way to raise money Eleanor Kelso

Think of fundraising ideas and you might imagine a cake sale, a sponsored run or even sitting in a bath of baked beans. Walking over hot coals probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But fire walking is fast emerging as a contender on the fundraising scene. Thirty volunteers recently took part in a sponsored fire walking event in West Chiltington, supporting the Alexandra Bastedo Champions (ABC) animal sanctuary. The sanctuary needs more money if it is to carry on caring for animals in need. Weekly hay and food costs alone are a staggering £287. The event raised about £5,000, a healthy boost for the sanctuary. So how does somebody go about rising above the pain and nerves associated with this kind of extreme activity? How do people walk across a 1,200°F fire pit without suffering burns and blisters to their feet? One of the walkers, 19-yearold Emma Bain from West Sussex,

Hypnotherapy and psychotherapy combined Karen Jones

Hypnotherapy is one of the oldest, most powerful and successful ways of exchanging unwanted behaviour patterns, thoughts and feelings for more beneficial ones. Because of its gentle nature it is suitable for anyone of any age. When combined with psychotherapy (counselling) a truly holistic effect

can be achieved. With the use of guided relaxation techniques and positive imagery your conscious (thinking) mind can be sent to sleep and your healing subconscious mind (where all your habits and behaviours are stored), can be brought forward to listen to the suggestions given to it. As your subconscious is only interested in your survival, it takes on board the new beneficial suggestions to replaces the old negative thoughts

and behaviours. Hypnotherapy is a very gentle but very effective process. When combining hypnotherapy with psychotherapy you are encouraged to talk through the issues that are causing you upset or concern in a supportive and completely confidential environment. Talking things through with a therapist who is completely neutral is very different to talking things through with a friend. Instead of being given advice, you are encouraged to look for solutions that will work for you and understand that change will only happen if you want it to. After just one session of hypnotherapy most people report feeling ‘more relaxed than ever before’. Everyone will differ in the type of treatment that will suit them best. I always write a completely individualised treatment plan for each client. Some clients decide to have the counselling as a standalone therapy, I can offer a full counselling service, I am qualified in several different approaches and we will decide together the best model to suit your needs. I have clinics at The Phoenix Health and Body Centre in Southwater and New Street in Horsham.

A promotional editorial

explained the importance of positive thinking. She said: “You have to be in the right mind-set. During the training they get everyone into a really optimistic frame of mind that makes them more susceptible to believing they can do it.”

cheering from ‘theThecrowd and the music really helps spur you on

The walkers are also discouraged from negative body language, as this can severely hinder their ability. Emma’s mum, sister and uncle supported her at the fire walk. She was surprised by the number of other people who turned up and added:

“The cheering from the crowd and the music really helps spur you on.” Emma became increasingly nervous in the week before the fire walk – her main concern was that her hair might catch light – but she had no doubt she would go through with the challenge. Her love of animals played a big part in her determination and she raised £160 for the ABC animal sanctuary. She was surprised it was not more painful and said without the training she would have thought it near impossible. Not everybody can cope with this kind of extreme activity – usually because they are not susceptible enough to the techniques used to hype them up, rather than having an especially low pain threshold. But Emma said she would advise others to take part in fire walking and gain the same sense of achievement.

he first Friday in October, every year, is really a very special day. Many beer aficionados will recognise it, but most others will not know it is OLD FRIDAY. It is the day every year we, at Weltons Brewery, launch our prize winning winter beer, Horsham Old. (It was voted Best Beer at the Sussex Beer Festival 2002). We mark the launch with a massive party in the brewery, attracting Morris Dancers, not only from West Sussex but also from neighbouring Surrey and they, of course, add an atmosphere & liveliness which makes this an unmissable event on the 7th October this year. Tickets are free from the Brewery and Beer Essentials in East Street. It will be available on draught in the pubs on this page and to take away from Beer Essentials in East Street. After a lot of hard work this year we have developed a great range of bottled beers which reflect our aim to produce beers that are as natural as possible and are totally free from any added preservatives, colouring or flavouring, all of which are bottle conditioned. This is the process whereby the beer is bottled with the yeast and in the process of secondary fermentation and maturation in the bottle, the beer is carbonated perfectly naturally. We have restarted bottling Pridenjoy, our flagship low gravity (2.8%) beer. We are putting it in 330ml and calling it Light Ale for the pub trade and 500ml bottles as Pridenjoy for the off-licences. The other beers are Sussex Pride 4%, Old Cocky 4.3%, Export Stout 4.7% & Old Harry 5.2%. We do occasionally bottle some of the seasonal beers we brew and the next will be Black Dragon Smoked Porter. This is named after the Black Dragon Morris Men recently formed in the town. The Smoked beers are interesting because you don’t see many brewed, but if you go back 200 years or more all beers would have had a smokey background to the flavour because the malt was roasted or kilned over wood fires which imparted the smokiness. The next one to look out for from Weltons will be Black Turkey 5.2%. This is a smoked stout & the reason for this smoked beer is so when you’re in the pub on Christmas Day, as you’re drinking the beer it will remind you of the burning turkey in the oven. Talking of Christmas, we’ll brew our usual 12 Beers Of Christmas & we’ll produce Santa’s Six Pack, the perfect Christmas present. Also this year we will preview the beers with an event in the brewery on Saturday the 3rd of December and this will be in the form of a music festival featuring local bands. Live@TheBrewery tickets are available from Beer Essentials. We have this year had two similar events which have been hugely successful. Go on You Tube & search Stuart James Band & you can see him playing some excellent blues in the brewery.

Upgrade is Company customers serenaded as they’re styled underway at We decided to Horsham ‘organise a live band station after the great success Railway operator, Southern, has provided information on the work being carried out at Horsham station. Major refurbishment work is currently going on at the station under the National Stations Improvement Programme (NSIP) scheme. NSIP is a Department for Transport-funded programme of projects designed to enhance approximately 150 medium sized stations across the rail network in England and Wales. A spokesman for Southern said: “The refurbishment work at the station includes the re-arrangement of the internal layout to provide an improved passenger experience and increased retail provision, to enhance the station’s basic facilities.” Those improvements include a new station entrance and ticket office, a choice of retail outlets, refurbished toilets, more parking and cycle shelters on both sides of the station. Temporary measures are in place to continue the service at the station. Those include a ticket office to the left of the building including ticket machines. Although there is a restricted service provided by the existing retail outlets, all facilities on the platform and train services remain unaffected.

The Lounge coffee shop at The Company Hairdressing recently introduced live music to entertain its customers. The venue, on Middle Street in Horsham, welcomed local band Makks on what turned out to be one of the sunniest days of the summer, to play outside the café. Paola Norris, manager at The Lounge, said: “We decided to organise a live band after the great success of the Horsham Festival of Sound, when we had the same band play here. “It turned out to be a great way for people to celebrate the last days of sunshine. Everyone loved it and it was a great way to liven up the street.” Makks is made up of twin brothers

of the Horsham Festival of Sound

Steve and Mike. They played for three and a half hours, performing covers of classics acoustically. The coffee shop and salon plans to host more events in the future, including lessons on how to create ‘glamorous’ hair for a night out, with quick and easy tips from the salon’s new stylist, Kyle.

Work begins on global HQ in Slinfold A J Walter Aviation, the West Sussex-based aircraft spare parts supplier, has started work on site, building its new global headquarters in Slinfold. After several months of demolition and site preparation, the construction phase for the new campus has begun. The new HQ is part of the

company’s already-successful plan for growth, which includes more staff and will provide warehouse capacity to house additional products to service new customers. The site spans more than 60 acres and will initially provide over 240,000 square feet of purpose-built office and storage facilities for A J Walter’s extensive range of Airbus and Boeing components and engines. Christopher Whiteside, president of A J Walter Aviation, said: “It will provide a first-class experience for visitors, and employees will benefit from modern, streamlined and efficient office layouts, a training ‘theatre’, on-site catering and restaurant, as well as outstanding sports and leisure facilities, and guest accommodation.” Andy Smith, logistics director at the organisation said: “We are spearheading a global strategy designed to deliver exponential growth for the business” “Our future path will demand facilities of the highest standard and the only way to ensure all of our technical, organisational and social priorities are met is to design and build our own exceptional environment.” The company is also keen to ensure it is developing a sustainable, eco-friendly new campus. Roy Jones is project manager at McLaren Construction and is supervising the development of the site. He said: “All of the aggregates from the existing buildings are being recycled to reduce CO² emissions and traffic congestion and we will be installing renewable energy sources on site. “We are committed to best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation. We are ahead of schedule and AJW’s impressive new UK campus facility will open in Summer 2012.” business

Bootcamp teaches the basics of brilliant marketing Forget the X Factor – there was only one bootcamp business delegates were interested in last week and the star of the show was Dee Blick. The expert hosted a day of marketing advice, insight and brownies! Almost 50 businesspeople have attended a one-day marketing bootcamp run by The Resident columnist Dee Blick. The day consisted of seminars from Dee on topics such as writing a positioning statement and creating an identity for a company using branding.

Dee Blick

Other speakers included clients of Dee’s, who shared stories and case studies about how the marketing guru had helped them improve the way they promote their business or products and services. In addition, experts in online marketing and social media also passed on valuable advice and tips on how

to use the tools effectively, as well as answering questions from the group. The bootcamp was held at Horsham Training Centre, which opened earlier this year and offers a wide range of courses for professional development. Delegates were not only provided with lunch but were also treated to morning coffee with Cakes by Sharon Walker, and afternoon tea with brownies courtesy of Cocoa Loco. Jenny Kovacs is director at GiFTWiSH, an organisation that aims to ‘make people feel special’ by offering training and coaching, both personally and professionally as well as cakes! Speaking about the event Jenny said: “It was a thought-provoking day. A lot of what Dee talks about is clear and common sense. So it really focused me, and is helping me to think about what I do and how I do it. “One of the most enlightening parts of the day for me was learning how the positioning statement is pivotal to everything else that follows it, and everything else you do. The energy in the room was fantastic!” A positioning statement is a simple, succinct and clear description of

Gok draws a crowd at supermarket There was a constant queue for manicures at Sainsbury’s Ladies’ Day last week. The superstore organised the day of pampering, pink bubbly and cupcakes especially for its female customers to celebrate the arrival of Gok for TU, a new range of womenswear. Cakes were decorated by Sainsbury’s staff member, Vicky Duff, and manicures were on offer from Jacki’s Nails and Kelly at For Your Nails Only. Sainsbury’s Horsham store manager Ian Maxey said: “We had a very exciting day and our customers were happy to join in the fun. “The mini manicures were a great success and we were delighted that two local small businesses chose to get involved, it was great to be able to support each other.”

Success continues for teenage entrepreneur Splaat Media has been awarded a large job providing photography services to schools in Leatherhead, Chichester and Portsmouth. The Horsham-based website development and photography company, which was established by 18-yearold entrepreneur Greg McClarnon, has been recruited to photograph a selection of shows taking part in the Shakespeare for Schools Festival. The event involves around 800 schools and their students putting on a 30-minute performance of a Shakespeare play. Splaat Media will be attending 32 of the school’s performances and offering the photographs they take to the parents of around 650 children. Managing director Greg McClarnon said: “This is a massive achievement for us. I’m really pleased that the work and reputation of Splaat Media has been recognised and I’m really looking forward to this project.” Splaat Media will take photos, print and label them on the day of each performance and display and sell them on site. The organisation was founded by Greg, a teenage entrepreneur, while he was still at college. It has already won business from the likes of Business Intros networking group and Haldi Indian restaurant as well as from numerous schools and theatre productions. For more information visit www.

Marathon success for chocolatier Sarah Payne, the managing director of Cocoa Loco, has raised over £1468 for charity by running a marathon and hosting a chocolate sale at her home. The founder of the successful chocolate-making company based in Partridge Green took part in the 26-mile race in aid of Tommy’s charity. The marathon was organised by St Austell running club and was held at The Eden Project and the surrounding area in Cornwall. Sarah said: “It was a really tough marathon. So hilly and in lots of places like a cross country course, but I can truly say I loved every minute of it. It was the most challenging thing I’ve ever attempted and I would love to do it all again, even though I was really sore and could barely move the next day. “966 runners finished the half marathon and 314 of us completed the full marathon. “I was second to last, but I really didn’t mind. I didn’t set myself a time as I just wanted to enjoy my first marathon and I wanted to stay on good mental form during the race. The marshals were all brilliant and so encouraging even for a slow coach

like me.” Sarah was cheered on by her family, including Oscar, her son, who persuaded a marshal to let him wait for her 300m from the finish line and run the last leg with his mum. The rest of the family went along too, such as her mum, dad, daughter Lauren and Sarah’s sister, her

husband and son. Sarah added: “They all surprised me on the morning of the marathon by turning up to support me with T shirts saying ‘Team Sarah Payne’. My nephew’s shirt said ‘Team Auntie Sarah’. “They were the most awesome support crew, and several times

Sarah Payne (centre) with her family

they surprised me by jumping out as I came round a corner along the course, supplying me with drinks and hugs.” Tommy’s charity funds research into pregnancy problems and aims to give every baby the best chance of being born healthy. The Eden Project was built in a disused clay mine in Cornwall, transforming it into a rich, global garden where people can learn about nature and the world around them. Cocoa Loco was established in 2005 when Sarah decided to go back to work after her children had all started school. Initially focusing on web-based orders for brownies, the business has grown to a staff of 10 and makes a wide range of chocolate-based products at a large factory near Partridge Green. The company has won prestigious corporate contracts and orders with the likes of Highgrove and Jamie Oliver.

Southern Water is a Crimestopper Best-selling crime novelist Peter James has handed over a pair of golden handcuffs to Southern Water, in recognition of the company joining Sussex Crimestoppers’ new Golden Handcuff Club. Sussex Crimestoppers is the regional branch of the independent charity Crimestoppers. The Golden Handcuff Club has been set up to enable local businesses and organisations to play a key role in helping to reduce crime in the county.

The unique group provides organisations with the opportunity to show their commitment to the communities of Sussex and to help maintain the vital work of the charity. Kathy Burke, chair of Sussex Crimestoppers, said: “Sussex Crimestoppers plays an important role in bringing Sussex together. In our case, we link together Sussex Police, local businesses and organisations and the wider community, with the aim of keeping Sussex safe.”

Peter James, co-patron of Sussex Crimestoppers, said: “It is fantastic that Southern Water is supporting Sussex Crimestoppers. “Their support is vital and by joining the Golden Handcuff Club, they can be confident that Sussex Crimestoppers is doing everything it can to help reduce crime in our community. “Every penny raised through this initiative will be used to promote the charity’s work across Sussex and to

encourage members of the public to call 0800 555 111 anonymously, with information about crimes.” That information can also be passed on to Crimestoppers anonymously via the website, www.crimestoppers-uk. org, as well as by phone. Calls to Crimestoppers from the Sussex area have led to the arrest and charge of criminals responsible for crimes as serious as drug manufacturing, human trafficking and sexual offences.

Prepare to go cupcake crazy A Horsham cupcake business has been experimenting with flavours you’ll know and love, and the result is a terrifically nostalgic new range - rhubarb and custard anyone? Something exciting is going on at Horsham Cupcakes HQ right now – and it’s all down to an intriguing new partnership with Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe. If you’ve always loved good, oldfashioned classic sweets like rhubarb

and custard and mint humbugs (you know, the kind that were weighed in front of you and popped into a little brown bag when you were a kid), prepare to go cupcake crazy! Because Horsham Cupcakes owner and recipe ideas extraordinaire, Lisa Loveys, has only gone and used the same ingredients for her latest range! Inspired by the traditional sweet flavours, Horsham Cupcakes’ new selection offers lovers of the tantalising treats something a little different. Using extra special ingredients and flavours shipped from America, these are cupcakes like no other. If you thought they were good before, just wait until you’ve tried one that tastes of bubble gum (yes, even the sponge tastes of it), flying saucers or sweet peanuts. Speaking of the new partnership with Mr Simms, Lisa said: “At Horsham Cupcakes we are all about the flavour, and is there a better flavour out there than those sweets we all loved growing up? “Here, we are always trying to give our customers something different, but still utterly delicious. That was really all the inspiration we needed to

create the new range. I hope people like them.” Horsham Cupcakes focuses on developing exquisite cupcake recipes with an original slant. Lisa added: “We are passionate about experimenting and playing with food and flavours. It’s what makes us so unique. “We take our inspiration from anywhere and nothing is off limits when it comes to trying things out. I get such a thrill from concocting a new meld of flavours”. The business offers a wide range of the spongy sustenance, for both individual and large corporate orders as well as for weddings, christenings and birthdays. On the menu are simple yet sublime options like vanilla, chocolate and lemon etc, as well as the somewhat more extravagant seasonal cakes – inspired by Christmas, Halloween and more.

Battle for Horsham’s revered music title is hotting up Danny Randon


Battle of the Bands - Heat One

“This year’s competition, like every year, is a great opportunity for local bands to play in a professional environment and showcase their talent” – according to Mandy Ansell, chairwoman of the Horsham District Live Music Alliance, as Horsham Battle Of The Bands returns for another year. Declaring the first heat of this annual competition well and truly underway at the Chameleon Club were previous contenders The Glass Room. Although their polished rhythms and sturdy cohesion between instruments proved to be well-received by tonight’s crowd, this alt-rock trio lacked onstage energy and an active stage presence during their performance. However, their music was written and performed with skill, signifying their clear potential. Also seen in last year’s competition were Billingshurst-based pop-punks Moments Too Late, who were next to take the stage. Once nervous kids performing

their debut gig in the very same venue a year ago, this quartet has matured into a confident ensemble, yet still possessing a cool youthful swagger. With their melodies powerful and their hooks uplifting, Moments Too Late certainly marked their territory on the night.

You can expect an ‘even better show at the final ’

Next to perform were A Room Swept White. A five-piece that describe their sound as ‘hardcore metal’, they faced technical difficulties head-on at the start of their set, if sounding slightly sloppy to begin with, before delivering a frantic set of melodic metal riffs, lightning-fast drum beats, and a far-from-static stage personality. With the sheer brutality of the last performance, the next band, Two Types Of Clothing, and their young, dumb and very fun punk sound was a superb contrast to the evening’s

proceedings. Their well-paced set was a declaration of respectable showmanship and perseverance. The last band to take to the stage were One Less Than Perfect, a femalefronted collective who combined elements of disco, pop and rock to create an enjoyable fusion of sound for the large crowd who had come to support them at their debut gig. Considering this is their first ‘official’ show, their flamboyant identity was outstanding throughout the performance. Shortly after One Less Than Perfect brought the night to an end, head judge Bill Foote awarded third place to show-openers The Glass Room, second place to show-closers One Less Than Perfect, and the top place was awarded to Moments Too Late. The band members said: “We’re absolutely stoked! You can expect an even better show at the final, with the possibility of a new song and we might even dress in tiger suits especially for it!” Now, with Moments Too Late and One Less Than Perfect guaranteed a place in the final at the Carfax Bandstand on October 28, this battle has only just begun.

Tribute act brings Christmas classic the best of Bowie The Nutcracker comes to The Capitol One of the most renowned dance academies in Minsk is putting on a performance of the impressive, festive ballet James Hood Entertainment Editor

The Belarus State Ballet Academy was founded in Minsk in 1928. Since then, the art of dance, which presents the range of human feelings and emotions has been developed and nurtured at the state dance school. Today, the academy competes with other professional ballet schools worldwide. And the teaching curriculum in the special subjects mirrors that of the Moscow Ballet Academy and A.J. Vaganova Academy of St Petersburg. The school has one main objective - the education of the ballet dancers. Excellent pedagogues (masters of the great art) work at the academy and many of them are graduates of the Saint Petersburg school and soloists of the Mariinsky Theatre. The Minsk academy’s high teaching level attracts students from countries around the world. Its graduates perform on the best stages of Russia, and dance in Paris, London, New York, Tokyo and other centres of modern ballet, constantly striving for creative perfection. The Nutcracker has been one of the most popular and famous ballets of the international repertoire since its premiere in 1892. For generations of theatre-goers, Peter Tchaikovsky’s ballet has been an integral part of the run-up to Christmas and tells the

Aladdinsane are the country’s leading tribute to David Bowie. Taking you back to the height of the Glam Rock period, including songs by Ziggy Stardust and working through Bowie’s colourful career, Aladdinsane recreates the sights and sounds of many of his classic songs. Combining Paul Henderson’s vocals with aspects of Bowie’s stage characteristics and theatrics, Aladdinsane recreate the studio and live recorded versions from Bowie’s vast musical repertoire. You’ll see why Paul and the band are being hailed as the ‘ultimate Bowie show’ with their incredible attention to detail, impressive showmanship - and Paul’s incredible voice. Aladdinsane will leave you spellbound, with the trance-like songs Space Oddity, The Man Who Sold The World and Life on Mars all beautifully recreated. You’ll be on your feet for the raunchy Jean Genie, Fame, and Diamond Dogs. Aladdinsane will draw you in and throw a spectacular piece of rock history right back at you. Expect all of the hits, such as Starman, Changes, Modern Love, Young

Americans, Absolute Beginners, Heroes, John I’m Only Dancing and Rebel Rebel. True Bowie fans and all lovers of superb live music will not be disappointed – So come on… Let’s Dance! On stage on Thursday, November 3, at 8pm. Tickets are £15. To book tickets visit www. or contact the Box Office on 01403 750220.

In the UK guidance is available from different sources, such as the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Financial Services Authority, and consumer group Which?, but this information often gets overlooked as people don’t always now where to find it and consumers are left struggling to understand all the different options.

I know how ‘confusing it can be

when you are buying a house for the first time

Ms Bowles, who chairs the European Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, said: “Speaking to my constituents, I know how confusing it can be when you are buying a house for the first time. It can feel as though you have to make several life-changing decisions without fully understanding what the consequences will be. “I believe that all mortgage lenders and intermediaries should be obliged to put a standard brochure for firsttime buyers in their hands, which would give basic definitions of all the key elements of mortgage lending, as well as pointing to where to go for more help. “I have discussed with Which? in the past the vast difference between information ‘being made available’ - which can be just a footnote or a booklet in a rack - and ensuring consumers actually have it given to them. “We need to focus on financial education for consumers so that they can make well-informed decisions on which mortgage is best suited to their needs.”

Ask the Experts 50% more mortgage products available compared to last year The Letting Agent Clive Hancocks, Director of Mortgage Solutions Limited, comments on the latest decision by the Bank of England Kathy Taylor Senior Manager Leaders


I am considering Buying-to-Let but is this a good time?

As the rental market continues to boom, with exceptionally strong demand for rented accommodation across the board, there has been an increase in the number of people considering investing in a property too rent out. This includes those new to letting and seasoned investors wishing to purchase more properties for their existing portfolios. It’s not difficult to see why buy-to-let is an appealing option for many at the moment. The stock market is alarmingly volatile and interest rates are very low, giving poor returns on savings. In contrast, rents are strong, yields are good and there are many opportunities for making a good, solid investment in the current slow sales market. In Horsham we are seeing ongoing high demand for all types of rental property, in particular for two and three bedroom houses. Landlords are seeing good rental yields and many tenants are choosing to rent for longer now, giving landlords greater security. For people considering investing in a property to let there have been significant improvements in the buy-to-let mortgage market in recent months, with new lenders entering the market and others expanding their buy-to-let product range. In fact the number of products available via Leaders Mortgages has increased by almost 25 per cent since the beginning of April, with regional building societies in particular demonstrating an increased appetite to lend in the buy-to-let market with a good choice of competitively priced mortgages. With more lenders and products available, and the historically low Bank of England base rate, there is now more competition in the market, and this has resulted in a fall in the pricing of variable and fixed rates. There have also been improvements in loan to values (LTVs) with a good selection of 80% LTV products currently available. This means that landlords are now able to borrow more, and with high tenant demand and increasing rents, lender rental income requirements are easier to satisfy. Whilst the lettings market is looking very positive for landlords, it is still important to exercise caution and I always advise investors to take a long-term view and to consult and experienced, independent letting expert on exactly what and where to buy for the best investment. As an ARLA-registered agent with more than 28 years experience in the industry, we are perfectly placed to help landlord with all aspects of letting – from choosing the right property and finding suitable tenants, to looking after it throughout the tenancy and advising on tax, insurance, legislation and much more. For advice you can trust on all aspects of renting or letting contact Kathy Taylor 01403 217585 or

The debate taking place in recent weeks had been around.. not would the Monetary Policy Committee raise or reduce interest rates this month, but whether they would vote to re-introduce their programme of monetary stimulus known as Quantitative Easing (QE) The Bank base rate has remained unchanged but the decision has been made that a further £75bn of new money will be injected into the economy through the purchase of assets including government bonds. With the UK’s underwhelming second quarter gross domestic product figures actually being revised downwards to only 0.1% from a previously reported 0.2% it would appear that the MPC has recognised that the economy is in need of further medicine to attempt to keep us from falling back into

levels of equity, can now access 2 year fixed rates at an average of 5.39%. The average 2 year fixed rate is now 4.22%, marginally up on September, but 5 year fixed rates have fallen further and the average is now 4.73%. These rates have stimulated increased activity amongst purchase and remortgage borrowers during September as people capitalise on these unprecedented rates. Overall mortgage product numbers declined a little in September but have rebounded in the first week of October, returning to levels similar to August. Intermediaries currently have access to around 7,300 deals, almost 50% more than the same period last year. Clive Hancocks is from Mortgage Solutions Limited. For further information on how the

recession. This combined with the continuing crisis in the Eurozone is having a further negative effect on already weak consumer confidence. Activity in the mortgage arena has been fairly steady throughout the summer period and we have witnessed a small upward bounce in activity during September, which from a seasonal historic perspective is fairly normal, albeit at lower overall volume levels than in the boom years. In spite of the turmoil in world stock markets and the Eurozone debt crisis, the UK mortgage market has continued to be reasonably robust. Mortgage product pricing remains at low levels with Moneyfacts reporting that borrowers requiring 90% LTV, traditionally first time buyers and those movers with low

Order books open for the Volkswagen up! Olli Nott Motors Reporter

The new Volkswagen up! is now available to order, ahead of the city specialist arriving in UK showrooms in spring 2012. While the up! might have the interior space and features of a larger car, its prices are in keeping with its small footprint, starting at £7,995 (RRP OTR), and rising to £11,180. Shown in production form at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the up! is an entirely new vehicle that offers space for four, the latest technology and highly efficient engines. From launch, the up! will be available with two 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine options as well as a BlueMotion Technology version; it will have three doors and three trim levels – Take up!, Move up! and High up! – plus a special edition, the up! black and up! white. A five-door version is expected to join the line-up in the second half of 2012. Take up! The range starts with the £7,995 1.0-litre 60 PS Take up! Key items of specification include body-coloured bumpers, daytime running lights, front and side head/thorax airbags, the new RCD 215 CD radio with auxin, rear ISOFIX points, and 14-inch steel wheels.

Move up! For £8,970, customers can upgrade to the Move up! This brings a host of comfort-oriented features, including remote central locking, air conditioning, electric front windows, easy-entry seats, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, variable-height load floor and 60:40 split/fold rear seats. Outside, the Move up! gains body-coloured door mirrors and handles. For just £360 more, the Move up! BlueMotion Technology adds a Stop/ Start system that reduces urban fuel consumption by up to six per cent, battery regeneration and low rolling resistance tyres. These measures enhance combined fuel economy to an expected 67.2 mpg, and reduce CO2 emissions from 105 g/km to a forecast 97 g/km – making it exempt from road tax. High up! The £10,390 75 PS High up! model is perfect for sophisticated urbanites, coming as it does with heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake grip, electrically heated and adjustable door mirrors, the Maps & More personal infotainment device and a choice of dashboard colour. From the outside, the High up! is distinguished by its front fog lights and 15-inch alloy wheels. up! black and up! white For the sybaritic, the special edition £11,180 up! black and up! white models are based on the High up!, but

add even more style, from the deep black pearl or pure white metallic paint to the chrome door mirror caps and door side strips to the 16-inch alloy wheels with body-coloured centre sections. Inside there is a body-coloured dash, special ‘stripes’ upholstery and

carpet mats. A compact city cruiser for less than £12,000 sounds like a pretty sensible idea. I’d like an up! Black please – if anyone would be so kind! Horsham motorists, what are your opinions on Volkswagen’s new offering? Worth it?

win No easy solutions after YM at Sidley less-than-magnificent 7 Nick Hind Football

James Herd Football

Horsham manager Justin Luchford admits he has no magic wand to turn around a run of seven successive league defeats. A 3-0 home reverse against fellow strugglers Concord Rangers followed the Hornets’ FA Cup exit against Burnham, which spelt the end for goalkeeper Matt Armstrong-Ford and prompted heavy criticism by some fans. Four of the league defeats were by a single-goal margin, but the former Faversham Town boss admitted on Saturday: “It’s been a very tough week. I’ve been involved in football a long time, but this week is probably up there with the toughest. “I thought it (the abuse) was unfair. We battered them (Burnham) and lost because of goalkeeping errors. “Richard (Langley) asked me last week if it was any worse than I

thought it was going to be. I said yes, because the players weren’t doing what I was asking them to do. “I’ve never been in this position before, I’m learning. The lads need to see I’m going to be strong and I’m not just going to let people come in and abuse us and our performances.

We’ve just got to ‘keep plugging away

“We’ve got some young lads at this football club, still learning their trade. We’ve just got to keep plugging away.” Horsham got off to a poor start against Concord when Tony Stokes

took the ball past two defenders and slotted low into the net from just outside the penalty area. And Concord doubled their lead in the 21st minute, Stokes again showing his class with an excellent finish. Despite a much-improved performance, the Hornets could not find a way back into the game. Craig Davies had a shot blocked, then failed to convert after a smart move involving Dane Luchford and Ray Freeman. Horsham began the second half brightly, but substitute Kyle Asante floated in a cross from the right and Harry Elmes put the result beyond doubt after 67 minutes. Luchford said: “We played some decent football at times. In the first half especially we had enough chances to be in the game, but weak defending has cost us. “They’ve given me everything. I’ve got no problem with the effort. We could have been a bit more clinical, with a bit more quality in that final third, but on the whole it was better.” The crowd, 548, was Horsham’s

biggest of the season, with no Premier League or Championship matches and under-16s being allowed in free of charge. It remains to be seen how many of them return on a regular basis, starting with the home match against the Metropolitan Police tomorrow (Saturday).

Horsham U15 fight back to win Youth Football

Horsham U15 twice came from behind to win 4-2 at Worthing Minors U15 in the second round of the Arun and Chichester Youth League Cup. Alex Moore, Rueben Selby, Callum Nash’s stunning free kick and Andrew Roberts did the trick for the young Hornets, who went into half time at 1-1 and soon trailed 2-1. Jordan Walser, Roberts and Ross Williams were thwarted by fine saves and Will Kerr twice hit the woodwork. At the other end, Tom Auston had

to be on his toes to keep out a welltaken free kick as he pushed the ball onto a post. Horsham U16 players Lewis Blaney, Jacob Waller, Ben Collier, Greg Gander and Connor Cushing helped Sussex FA U16 win 3-2 against London U16 at AFC Hornchurch. Sussex trailed 2-0 before fighting back. Former Hornet Josh Clack scored twice against his old side as Worthing U18 beat Horsham U18 3-0 in the Ryman Youth League. Horsham YMCA U18 suffered their first league defeat of the season, 4-1 against Hastings U18, despite Sam Bulley’s first-half equaliser.

George Hillier’s fifth-minute goal set Horsham YMCA on the road to a 2-0 win at Sidley in Division 1 of the Sussex County League. Sidley’s Marc Munday was dismissed for violent conduct soon after Hillier’s strike and Tim Martin added the clincher five minutes from time. Sidley had two goals disallowed. Danny Leach’s goal was enough to clinch a 1-0 home win for Hailsham against Storrington in Division 2. A penalty by the prolific former Albion youngster made the difference, but Storrington produced a resolute performance to push the division’s pacesetters all the way. Both goalkeepers were well employed, with Swans gloveman Jason Downer attracting special praise from his opponents after a string of wonder stops. Steyning are off the bottom after notching their first league win. Town squeaked past Little Common 4-3 after leading 3-0 by the 21st minute. Goals from Adam Burton (two), Ryan de Freitas and David Harris sealed a result that could kickstart their season, with games against mid-table Mile Oak and fellow strugglers Oakwood on the horizon. Jake Holmes scored five times, taking his season’s tally to 15, as Forest won 6-1 at Faygate United in the Sussex Intermediate Cup. Kyle MitchellHarris added the sixth on 85 minutes. Broadbridge Heath went out of the same competition against Eastbourne Borough Reserves. Dan Attwater grabbed a consolation goal from the spot in a 3-1 home defeat against a side who included Horsham legend Gary Charman. Heath boss Steve Painter said: “Gary Charman said we created enough chances to win four matches.” Roffey are out after a 6-0 beating by Division 1 side AFC Uckfield.

Chelsea visits The Chelsea Foundation and Ashington Cougars will run soccer schools at Steyning Grammar School on October 25-26, December 19-20 and February 16-17. Cougars secretary Daniel FullerSmith said: “The Chelsea Foundation takes football out to the community and offers exceptional coaching under the Chelsea banner. “All profits are ploughed back into football and coaching soccer schools or direct work with schools. “They are running a club session in November, we have a trip to the Academy in December as a Christmas present for our players and we are arranging another visit.” For more information, visit www.

Horsham just short of draw Josh Tolhurst Rugby Union

Despite a late try by Liam Yeates, Horsham were on the wrong end of a close result for the second successive week. The home side had to do a lot of defending early on, but they couldn’t keep Sheppey out for long. Sheppey recycled the ball quickly and Martin Robinson found a gap to burst through and score a converted try. Sheppey’s attack was relentless and Horsham gave away a poor penalty, which Brad Box calmly scored to put the visitors further in front. Handling errors prevented Horsham from scoring after a direct run by Nick Essex, but strong mauling from five metres out resulted in Rob Grantham-Hill being forced over the line. Matt Goodsir converted before Box missed a penalty and Horsham went into half time trailing 10-7. The second half started much the same as the first, with Sheppey on top. Horsham did not help themselves when another penalty was given away, this time scored by Box, and Goodsir missed with a kick at the other end. Play started to deteriorate and become scrappier, with neither team managing much fast, flowing rugby.

Horsham v Sheppey





Sheppey remained on top but looked vulnerable to the pace of the Horsham counter attack. In a match becoming dominated by penalties, Horsham gave away yet another and Box superbly kicked over from a very tight angle. Horsham responded magnificently and James Whiting raced through two tackles for a much-needed try which Goodsir converted, 14-16. Horsham had the wind in their sails, but their penalty count was getting ridiculous and another was given away. Box made no mistake and, out of nowhere, Robinson put a superb drop goal over the posts to extend Sheppey’s advantage to eight points. Yeates found space in a stretched defence to reduce Horsham’s deficit to three points and the home side won a penalty, a chance to equalise with the final kick of the game. Goodsir’s kick from a near-impossible angle fell just short, giving Sheppey an important win and leaving Horsham with a lot to think about.

Horsham U10

Horsham U10 followed up their win in the Crawley festival by triumphing again at Chichester. Big wins against Fareham Heathens U10 and Portsmouth U10, plus a closer victory against Worthing U10, set up a pool decider against Chichester U10. George Howard scored the decisive try.

Strong running from Horsham’s backs helped secure a 4-1 win against Pulborough U10 in the final. Horsham U13 were well beaten by Brighton U13 after drawing 7-7 against Brighton B U13. Ben Murphy, back after breaking an arm in a skateboard accident, scored a fine try which Ollie Joels converted.

Horsham U13 v Brighton U13

Dan’s the man as Horsham win away Martin Read Hockey

Horsham rose to fifth in the table with a 2-1 win at Bexleyheath and Belvedere, starting assertively and maintaining territorial supremacy throughout. Numerous saves by the home side’s goalkeeper denied Horsham until Will Richardson scored from close range, but Bexleyheath and Belvedere equalised just before the interval. At half time, coach Sam Naismith highlighted a flaw in the hosts’ defence, resulting in a pinpoint build up and winning goal by Dan Rhodes. The home side’s coach admitted: “The scoreline doesn’t reflect the

pressure Horsham applied.” Heidi Menniss scored the final goal of the game as Horsham Ladies lost 2-1 at Chelmsford Ladies. Zac Chinn’s double strike helped Horsham Hotshots beat St Francis Leprechauns 3-0 in the Sussex Development League, for boys of secondary school age. Will Salmon scored the other goal, Daniel Hood made some excellent saves and Sean Watson also impressed. Horsham Boys U10 finished fourth in the minis festival at Eastbourne. The boys beat South Saxons U10 1-0, with a superb finish by Luke Portman after a passing move involving George Cardwell and Ted Thomas. Horsham lost 1-0 to Eastbourne

U10, almost equalising through James Harvey after resilient defending by Tom Emery and James Ormerod, then

drew with East Grinstead U10 before Portman equalised in a draw against Hailsham U10.

Horsham Boys U10

For the second time this season – and not for the last time – Albion did not play at the weekend due to international fixtures. I guess this is something we will have to get used to, as we now support a Championship club with eyes on the Premier League. Only a couple of seasons ago, every time England played I could be found in the crowd. I followed England for 10 years, missing less than a handful of games. I watched some great performances, such as the 5-1 win over Germany in Munich and the 1-0 victory over Argentina in 2002. But I saw some rubbish too, none more so than the final game at Wembley when Germany beat us. Then there’s the disappointment at every tournament when we get knocked out. Last Friday, England qualified for the Euros next Summer. Will England win it? I doubt it. I’m sure the England players will do their best and the support – including a large number of Albion fans – will be fantastic, but I just don’t see it being enough. A couple of other good things came out of last weekend. Bobby Zamora was back in the England squad and for a while it looked like he would start against Montenegro. He’s scoring regularly for Fulham, so it’s only a matter of time before he gets his chance. Our current goal machine, Craig Mackail-Smith, not only made his full debut for Scotland against Liechtenstein but also scored the only goal. Well done Craig. My days of following England may have ended, but if Albion ever play in Europe I’ll be there. Don’t all laugh, it is possible. Fulham, Birmingham and Stoke are all playing in Europe this season – and if they can do it, I don’t see why we can’t. Tony, Gus and everyone at the club are looking to push Albion forward to become a Premier League side within a couple of seasons. Apart from the small challenge of staying in that league, the obvious progression is to get into Europe. Tomorrow (Saturday), Albion are back in action against Hull – a bit later than usual (5.30pm), but at least it’s a Saturday game. This is something else we will have to get used to, with kick-offs not only at odd times but on almost any day of the week. After a couple of disappointing results, let’s hope we get back to winning ways. Europe here we come.

Rising star needs your help Tom Norris Youth Golf

Since joining Mannings Heath Golf Club last June, PGA professional Carl Watts has taken the club’s junior system to new heights. In the space of just 12 months he became the junior golf organiser, introduced his Exclusive Golf Tuition School and set up the Carl Watts Youth Academy. Now the two-time European Challenge Tour event winner wants to take his successes a step further, by creating a golfing scholarship for rising star Luke Bennett. The 16-year-old Collyer’s student has been a member at Mannings Heath for just over two years, but has already taken on the junior vicecaptaincy and cut his handicap from 14 to six. Watts, who has 25 years of competitive and coaching experience, said: “We are trying to create a Youth Academy scholarship programme and we want Luke to be the first recipient. But we need to attract companies or individuals to do that. “The point is to give a very talented young man an opportunity to progress in the game, when he may otherwise not have had the chance.” The extensive coaching programme that the scholarship offers is £300 a month. And despite an extremely supportive family, their budget for Luke’s golf will not stretch that far. Luke hopes to embark on a twoyear elite coaching programme, with a fully comprehensive curriculum,

weekly homework, four two-hour golfing sessions a month and access to Watts’ experience and coaching techniques. He said: “If I was able to attend the Youth Academy scholarship, it would definitely help my game. I am at a barrier where I can’t really get any lower on my handicap. The scholarship would mean I could progress and take my game to the next level and beyond. “Carl’s great. He’s friendly, knows what he’s talking about and has played the game for ages. His help will hopefully really benefit me.” Watts has already overseen a number of other successes. He coaches Sussex U12 champion Jamie Dart and has charted the progress of UK U9 champion Jack Holmwood plus county players Gregor Macintosh, Joe White and James Holden. The junior team have reached the prestigious John Bury final, which will be held in November. Watts added: “I arrived here in June last year and there was no one really taking hold of the junior section. We started putting things into place around July and it’s really progressed this year. “We have a very high-quality group of juniors. A lot of the lads here have half an eye on where this could potentially go, especially regarding a professional golf career. I’m trying to coach them, if you like, as semiprofessionals. “Luke is an excellent player and will hopefully really benefit from the scholarship programme, just so long as we can find the funds to support him.”

Broadbridge Heath U13 ran riot in the John Laker Memorial Cup, beating Walton Heath U13 23-0. The goals came from Jack Sizzey (six), Cameron McCracken (four), Joe Kirkham (three), Lewis Dobson (three), Matt Penfold (two), James Skipper, Joel Colbran, Jamie Corps, Mitchell Clark and Jordan Bell. Jake Legrange matched Sizzey’s feat by scoring six times as Royal United U16 beat Lingfield U16 10-0 in the Edwin Hill Cup. Ant Jupp (two), Zac Love and Alex Parsons got on the scoresheet too, while Stanley Rice and Harry Garman also impressed. Roffey Robins Wanderers U16 reached the quarter-finals of the same competition by outplaying Lower Beeding and Handcross Lions U16. Alex Taylor (two), Tom Barnes, Chris Nicholson, Sam Collins, Alex Holmes, Harry Hinchey and an own goal made it 8-0 to the rampant Robins. Elliott Stanbridge stayed alert to keep a clean sheet.

St Paul’s Panthers U15 saw red – twice – as Lower Beeding and Handcross Lions U15 roared to victory in the Fred Sparks Cup. Panthers scored first but one of their players was soon sent off for aggressive behaviour. Captain Andrew Roberts made them pay from the free kick before Glenn Johnson and Adam

Basketball Holbrook Allstars Ladies began their Sussex League season with a 47-23 win over Brighton Phoenix at the Holbrook Club. A low-scoring first half ended 1313, but the third period was more entertaining as the teams traded baskets. Forward Kirsty Batchelor imposed herself under the boards, ably supported by Jenny Webb shooting from outside. The Allstars dominated the fourth quarter, winning it 17-3. Ana Sztancs and Sarah Moloney showed excellent ball handling, while 13-year-old Haylee Miller made an impressive debut. Horsham Hawks U14 took positives despite losing 89-31 in a tough away match against the Crawley Cagers first team. Max Dodd top scored with eight points, while Ola Edgal and Haylee Miller scored six each and Jonathan Walsh chipped in with five. Coach Nick Probin was pleased to see the team respond well after an initial onslaught, competing to the end with every player giving their all.

Sport in Brief

Ruz scored to take the tie into extra time at 3-3. Roberts scored two more to complete his hat-trick and a great piece of skill from Callum Nash set up Adam Ruz for his second. The St Paul’s goalkeeper was sent off for more aggressive behaviour as a frustrating game finished 6-3.

Roffey Robins Wanderers U16 celebrate

Aaron Pyzer was Lions’ player of the match. Chesworth Rovers U11 won 12-0 at Greenway U11 in the Heron Way Cup. The home side fought doggedly all the way and showed some nice touches, but Chesworth were simply too strong. Top scorer Jack Frankland scored five, with Henry Browning netting four and Jed Ridsdale-Hooper, Caleb Walker and Benjy Collins adding the others. Forest U10 played two hardfought matches against West Hove Dynamos U10, winning 1-0 and drawing 1-1. Forest scored late in the first match when Harry Huddlestone’s pass enabled Jamie Atkins to smash home. Samuel Smith made two very good saves. Samuel Shoubridge scored with a lob in the second match, but Dynamos levelled at the death. Roffey Robins Rockets U9 are unbeaten in six matches after beating Southwater U9 5-0 and 9-0. George Powling scored a hat-trick in each game and Karney Mitchell hit three in the second.

Atlantis swimmers were involved in an exciting contest at the Medway Centre, Gillingham. The final points totals were Black Lion 208, Atlantis 207, Crawley 196, East Grinstead 152, Beckenham B 147 and Dartford 128. Twelve Atlantis swimmers made their NASL competitive debuts – Matt Lambourne, Toby Van Der Hut, Oliver Giles, Max Dillon, Chris Lambourne, Dan Jones, Joe Widdowson, Lauren Pedel, Gemma Cumber, Lily Cherriman, Lily David and Francesca Giles. None of them were overawed by the occasion and all acquitted themselves admirably. Deputy head coach Andy Lobley said: “The team spirit was absolutely fantastic. All of the team swam with such heart and for each other.”

Motor Sport West Chiltington’s Kieran Vernon will race at Silverstone in the final weekend of the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup. After qualifying at 12.05pm tomorrow (Saturday), the two races are scheduled to start at 12.25pm and 3.45pm on Sunday. Both will be shown live on ITV4. This month’s Horsham Riders trial took place on a very dry and dusty course at Northlands, near Horsham. The very hot weather made riding difficult.
