Plans to close Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre have sparked a furious backlash by district residents. As first revealed on www.the-resident. co.uk on Tuesday, a council-commissioned report recommends that the centre be demolished after the contract with DC Leisure runs out at the end of November next year. The report was this week backed by Cllr Jonathan Chowen, district council Cabinet member for leisure, who said the centre

faced a repair bill of up to £1.5 million and other leisure facilities were available in the area. A large part of the site is owned by Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council, but district council chief executive Tom Crowley said it was too early to say what it might be used for or whether Tesco was interested in developing it. Closure of the 25-year-old leisure centre is likely to be approved by the Conservative-dominated district council at meetings on Thursday next week and on December 21. But the expected decision leaves an uncertain future for sports clubs including

Broadbridge Heath Football Club, Horsham Blue Star (athletics), Horsham Joggers, Horsham Hockey Club, Horsham Arun Badminton Club and Sussex Thunder (American football). British Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls train at the centre, which the Grenada Olympic Association will use as a training camp for two or three weeks before the London 2012 Olympics. Users of the centre’s other facilities, including Kinetika Gym, are also less than impressed by Cllr Chowen’s assertion that leisure facilities in the district and just outside – at the K2, Crawley – have improved since the centre opened.

Phone and broadband in Barns Green has been off for a week after thieves stole and severely damaged cables. They struck in Two Mile Ash Road on Thursday evening last week, taking hundreds of metres of cable, including copper which has risen in value recently. BT received more than 100 reports about lost service after the theft, which affected up to 200 homes. A spokesman for BT told The Resident yesterday (Thursday): “We hope that services will be restored to everyone by Friday (today).” Simon Rafferty, managing director of X-Engineering in Barns Green, said: “This is the second time in six months we have lost all connectivity due to the phone cable being stolen. “It’s having a big impact on the business as we are a mail order company.

Luckily they are one of the few houses with phones working. Next time we may not be so lucky. “This affects people in so many ways – businesses such as the pub, campsite, people who work from home and self-employed people who are losing out.” Ian Pearson, a photographer for The Resident who lives in Barns Green, said: “I am stuck at home with two ill toddlers and no communications. I am also losing business due to the lack of a phone and internet.

Stolen manhole cover A woman fell 20ft down a main sewer drain hole on the A281 at Broadbridge Heath after thieves stole the cover to sell as scrap metal. Police said she was lucky to escape with minor cuts to her legs. A spokesman said: “Horsham

Jordan Day and Georgie Johnson turn on the Piries Place Christmas lights

The winning pictures by Jordan (left) and Georgie

Eleven-year-olds Jordan Day and Georgie Johnson turned on the Christmas lights in Piries Place. Jordan, from Southwater, and Georgie, from West Chiltington, won a competition for under 14-year-olds to draw a picture of William Pirie, after whom Piries Place is named. Graham Russell, of Aurac Sound & Vision, told The Resident: “Saturday was a fantastic day. The turnout was absolutely brilliant – Piries Place was packed. “It took us about 15 minutes to get stock from our shop to the loading bay because there were so many people in the way! “A big thank you must go to everyone who made the event such a success, including all the shops that took part, the Sands charity and the wonderful singers. “Special praise has to go to the team at Beeches Buffet, who put in a huge amount of hard work in the build-up and made sure the day ran smoothly.”

Yet another thing that town won’t be seeing Nik Butler www.loudmouthman.com Twitter - @loudmouthman

Horsham will not have the opportunity for congested streets and disrupted retail to allow a naked flame through its streets on the way to London. Let us add that to the list of “one more thing Horsham will not be seeing”. It joins A&E services, the Carfax funfair and possibly Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre. I begin to wonder if the view of Horsham residents is one of sloth-like incumbents unlikely to risk injury or pain. Hence the lack of investment and support for sport and leisure. When it comes to parking, we are very competitive, although I cannot locate the event for the 100 parking meters dash. Surely the route planners would have factored-in parking costs when considering the torch procession. Clearly we are not as competitive as we might be led to believe. Maybe we are misreading this. Perhaps the reduction in interest in Naked Flame Voyeurism and the increase in the cost of parking is only to encourage more of the Horsham public to get out onto the streets and walk to their destinations. Certainly the streets at this time of year are both a visual delight and an underfoot health hazard. With streets uncongested by the cheering crowds of symbolic sycophants, there is a freedom to walk into town, to shop and to enjoy the increasing multitude of cafés and coffee shops, though possibly not at the Old Town Hall. This additional exercise will offset the lack of leisure centres and will improve our fitness levels, which in the event that we may be required to travel several miles to an A&E ward will ensure we can make the journey. Because we have saved our money by not using the local car parks, we will be able to afford the parking fees of the not-so-local hospital car parks as we wait and wait and wait to be seen. While it could be argued that “cuts must be made for savings to be achieved”, each year a little more is shaved off from the features and venues available. The only sentiment offered is: “At least we’re not as bad as other towns.” Surely our aim should be to excel, to achieve and to show an Olympic attitude.

@TheResidentNews

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse… Continued from Page 1 Members of the Horsham Facebook page were overwhelmingly hostile to the plans after we broke the story online. Sean Girdlestone said: “It may save money in the long run, but as we can see from rising obesity and lack of fitness the future costs to treat such illnesses would be greater.” Horsham Joggers member Jason Walker agreed, adding: “It will have a huge impact on many local clubs. It is criminal that the only track available in Horsham could close. “In this age where obesity is rife, the council are impacting this in the wrong way. What are they thinking of?” Jo Bull said: “What great timing. (In) Olympic year, when more people will be inspired to take up sport, Horsham council will close a facility down. “Somebody tell the Grenada Olympic Team that when they have finished using it for their pre-Olympic training the council will start digging up the track.” Karen Taylor asked: “Why are Horsham District Council closing everything down or stopping people from being able to enjoy themselves?!” Alan Arnold mused: “It may look a bit dated, but I imagine it has been lacking investment and repair deliberately to justify its closure. “After all, why replace it when they can just pretend the Pavilions is good enough or tell people to go to Crawley. HDC haven’t got a clue.” Mark O’Connell said of the leisure centre: “That’s the only thing

Broadbridge Heath has got in it!” Consultants Hywel Griffiths have spent about two months preparing their leisure needs study, which cost the district council £6,000. The study concludes that the district is well provided for with a range of facilities and that leisure participation rates are above the national average. The only shortfalls are seen as allotments and indoor tennis, while there is a sufficient or excessive supply of golf courses, swimming pools, playing fields and synthetic turf pitches. It also concludes that there is an over-supply of sports halls and fitness gyms in the north of the district. Cllr Chowen said: “As very many people will appreciate, Horsham

District Council has a strong record of providing modern leisure facilities. They are part of what makes the district such a marvellous place to live. “If the decision is made to close the venue, I am personally committed to working with the existing key users of the leisure centre with regard to finding alternative provision for their activities. “I feel very comfortable with the report and its conclusions.” The issue will be discussed by the district council’s Cabinet on Thursday next week (5.30pm) and by the full council on December 21. Both meetings are open to the public. Agendas and further information are available at www.horsham.gov. uk/council/agendas-reports.aspx or by phoning 01403 215123.

We asked the 7,300+ members of the Horsham Facebook page for their reaction and if they thought the leisure centre should be closed.

Here are a few of their comments... Tudor Wells What a dreadful idea, it’s the only proper running track in Horsham. What about the athletics clubs that are homed there? Julie Wallace My children have trampolining lessons there. It has always seemed busy to me and they do fantastic children’s parties. It would be a shame to lose it. Surely with the new homes being built nearby it will still be needed as a facility? Is this just shortsightedness by the council? Penny Hollands Noooo! They can’t do that. Pavilions don’t hold enough fitness classes to accommodate Horsham and the surrounding areas as it is. A stupid cutback. Jamie Cormack Sign of the times... more houses, less facilities, recipe for disaster. Clive Walker That’s terrible news. It’s a great facility. I’ve used the gym there ever since I’ve lived in Horsham (over 15 years) and it has been great. Very sad since Pavilions in the Park always seems less convenient (for me at least).

Kate Dold So, yet again HDC consider cutting a service that is well used! My daughter trampolines at BBH, and so many other activities for young and old! And amazing activities provided for children with special/additional needs. How exactly does closing the centre benefit the community of Horsham? Jackie Evans I use this gym about 3 times a week. I definitely don’t want to see it go as it’s so convenient for me and it’s always busy. I do wonder though, if they were persuaded to keep and spend money on it, what they might get rid of instead? I feel so sad about the changes in Horsham at the moment, closure of the gym, closure of a great live music venue and possible cancellation of the annual fair. Bad times :( Not feeling the love for HDC right now. Emma McCarthy It’s hard to understand this decision - they’ve only just put in an amazing sensory room which is available to the whole community for a tiny charge. My son loves it! Warren Marks With all the new houses set to be built in west Horsham, it seems a bit odd? The consultants will be back in a few years to say that the Pavillions is not big enough! I know the car park in the Pavilions is not big enough now.

Attacked man’s head glued back together A man was punched in the head several times after a conversation with eight youths near the entrance to Horsham station.

The incident happened at 11.10pm on Wednesday, October 26, but transport police have just taken the unusual step of releasing CCTV images of

people who are not linked with the assault. Police believe the people in the pictures were not involved but may have important information. Det Con Marie Jeffery said: “A 35-year-old man from Horsham felt a punch in his left shoulder before being hit on the head numerous times with a blunt object. “He was left with two cuts to his head, which both required gluing, and bruising to his shoulder. “Crime on the network remains extremely low and offences of this nature are very rare. However, it is vital that we find the people responsible.” Anyone with information can contact British Transport Police on 0800 405040, quoting incident number B11 of November 4, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Towns and villages fell silent on Armistice Day last Friday and again on Remembrance Sunday, in memory of the casualties of war. In a scene matched across the district, hundreds of people in the Carfax observed a two-minute silence around the War Memorial at 11am on Friday and Sunday. Cllr Claire Vickers, chairman of Horsham District Council, laid a wreath on both days. Children from St Mary’s School planted 12 Remembrance crosses on Friday. Horsham MP Francis Maude and representatives of organisations such as the Royal British Legion, the Armed Forces and youth groups laid wreaths on Sunday. In Henfield, Poppy Appeal organiser Mike Morgan read out the names of young men killed in action. Vicar Alastair Cutting told a packed St Peter’s Church in the village: “What the conflicts of today and the past have in common is that it is mainly young men who have lost their lives. The average age was once 26, but this has dropped to 19.” A Henfield teenager wore a World War II uniform of the old Sussex Regiment as veterans of the war and more recent conflicts took part in the service. Cllr Ray Osgood, chairman of Henfield Parish Council, told the crowds: “It is good to see so many young people gathered today with veterans of the past.”

Twenty-five members of Steyning Air Cadets Squadron paraded from the Squadron HQ to St Andrew’s Parish Church as part of the commemoration in Steyning. Corporal Georgie Carpenter laid a wreath. Squadron spokesman Dave Emsley said: “I was very proud of all my cadets. They gave an excellent performance and I received a lot of praise for how smartly they presented themselves.”

gathered today with veterans of the past

More than 60 Year 8 pupils from The Forest School visited the battlefields of Belgium to pay their respects to the soldiers of World War I. The boys visited the town of Ypres, Flanders Fields Museum, Menin Gate, Tyne Cot, Lijssenthoek, Essex Farm and Hooge Crater Cemetery. History teacher Claire Harrington said: “Our guide had looked up a soldier from Horsham who was buried at Hooge Crater. “We found his headstone and read our final poem to him. You could have heard a pin drop. It was a very emotional moment and a fitting end to what was a very thought-provoking trip.” Arthur Lodge Veterinary Surgery, Horsham, remembered the animals of war. Among the patients at Arthur Lodge are two explosive-detective dogs. Archie, a Springer Spaniel, and Buster, a black Labrador, work for a security services company. Julian Peters, owner of the Arthur Lodge Veterinary Surgery Group, said: “It is easy for people to forget the involvement that animals have in conflicts. Without them, many of the earlier victories enjoyed by our country would not have been possible. “Even today, animals play a major role. Archie and Buster do a fantastic job. It is only right to give a thought to these brave animals, not only on Remembrance Day but throughout the year, as well as the countless soldiers.”

The call comes from North Horsham county local committee, which has limited Community Initiative Funding (CIF) available from West Sussex County Council. Cllr Brad Watson, chairman of the committee, said: “Our area is rich with a wide variety of organisations that make a valuable contribution throughout the year. “CIF enables us to actively support their initiatives and projects in a positive and practical way. For example, it can help them buy new equipment, develop new services or reach new people. “So why not see if your organisation qualifies?

Energy efficiency delights council West Sussex County Council has been ranked 322 out of 1,301 businesses and organisations in the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficient Scheme. The Environment Agency has published a performance league table, ranking participants in terms of their early action to manage energy. Cllr Michael Brown, county council Cabinet member, said: “I’m delighted with our performance in this first league table. It reflects the considerable importance we place upon managing our energy consumption and reducing our carbon dioxide emissions.

“In the past year we have updated our system for measuring and reporting emissions. “We have also started a major project to roll out smart meters across all our buildings and are working with the county’s schools and academies to support better energy management in their buildings. “As a result of all this work, we were awarded the Carbon Trust Standard and this has greatly helped our position in the league table. “So far we have reduced carbon dioxide emissions from our buildings by 10 per cent and we aim to do more over the coming year.”

This time next year the people of Sussex will be asked to vote in an historic election. For the first time, they will be given the opportunity to elect one individual to represent them for policing. On November 15, 2012, residents will decide who should hold the Chief Constable to account. Police authorities, the independent bodies that oversee policing, are

to be abolished and replaced with directly elected police and crime commissioners (PCCs). Cllr Steve Waight, chairman of Sussex Police Authority, said: “The significance of this change should not be underestimated. “This will be one of the most fundamental changes to policing that has ever happened and could significantly change the way in which policing is delivered in Sussex.”

Needles garden finished A new garden has been completed for the Needles Community in Horsham. Led by Horsham District Council, the project was funded by a £30,000 Section 106 grant plus donations from West Sussex County Council, Busy Bees Nursery, Horsham Lions Club and Southern Water. Young people from the Needles Youth and Kings Church helped to plant fruit trees, shrubs and herbs, and mulched the planting beds. The Community Payback Team helped to paint walls and fences. The project includes an improved

private youth/child garden, an overflow car park and a community garden for residents. It will be launched to residents of the wider Needles Community in the spring. Cllr Roger Arthur, district council Cabinet member, said: “The new garden at Needles is a great transformation. “It is great to see the local young people coming out to help with the planting and a number of organisations making donations. “The new community garden area will provide a relaxing space that everyone in the local area can enjoy.”

John’s good Causeway Sussex Police election For the past 19 years, local artist John Davies has painted a Horsham scene for the Christmas card of the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (SASBAH). This year’s card – a view of the Causeway, entitled Old Horsham – is on sale with other local views in the card shop at Horsham Museum. The shop, which sells cards by 17 charities, will be open from 10am to 4.45pm, Monday to Saturday, until December 17.

Youth cuts get closer West Sussex county councillors have backed a plan for £2 million cuts in youth services to be phased over four years, not three. Cllr Richard Burrett, chairman of the children and young people’s services committee, said “We spent a considerable amount of time asking detailed questions about the proposals and heard from representatives from the Youth Cabinet, trade unions and the voluntary sector. “Members of the committee expressed concerns about the impact of the proposals on young people. A group of members has been set up to examine the impact in more detail over the coming months. “We explored a range of alternative ideas for funding the service, but the committee accepted that none were likely to be sustainable. “The committee was in favour of the proposal to extend the period over which the budget is reduced, to allow for more work with the voluntary and community sector, so that they are better able to take over local provision of services where appropriate.” The final decision will be made by Cllr Peter Evans, council Cabinet member, at some time this month.

Moves over quality Shop scare of air in Cowfold Measures to manage air quality are to be introduced in Cowfold. Horsham District Council, which declared an air quality management area in the village in September, will submit a report to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in the next year. The Street, part of Station Road and Bolney Road were included in the management area after what the council described as “very encouraging” consultation. The report to DEFRA will identify

the specific sources of nitrogen dioxide which are contributing to the problem, as well as reviewing additional air quality monitoring data. It will be used to review the boundary of the area and ensure that any action is directed at the most significant sources of nitrogen dioxide. An action plan will also be developed to bring long-term health benefits to those who live in, work in and visit Cowfold, as Horsham District Council, West Sussex County Council and residents work together.

A woman reported a suspicious act to security staff at Tesco, Broadbridge Heath. Police said a woman in her 70s approached a two-year-old girl and spoke to her, at which point the pensioner was challenged by the girl’s mother. A spokesman for Sussex Police told The Resident: “We believe the woman was confused and thought the child was someone she knew. “There was no suggestion that she attempted to leave the store with the child and parents should not worry. “We are attempting to trace the woman and discuss the matter with her.”

Food for thought Gordon Tregear and Rosemary Crowley officially opened the Wolfson Food and Nutrition Facility (FNF) at Collyer’s. Funded by the Wolfson Foundation, the FNF is the largest facility of its kind in the country being used by AS and A2 students on the Food, Nutrition and Health course. It includes 10 cookers, 24 lap-tops and a stateof-the-art Skype-enabled camera. Mr Tregear, Vice Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex, is pictured with Collyer’s principal Jackie Johnston and Sally Miller, subject leader for food and nutrition. Other guests included Cllr Claire Vickers, chairman of Horsham District Council, and Chris Baister, the council’s business development manager. They were treated to a range of healthy food, prepared by students Natasha Crawford, Hester Doran and

Penny Stone. Dr Johnston said: “The students and staff at Collyer’s were proud to show off our new facility to a host of VIPs. “We are hugely grateful to the Wolfson Foundation and delighted that we have been able to develop for the future. I am confident it will help the Food and Nutrition success story under Sally Miller to continue.” Mr Tregear said: “A-level Food and Nutrition at Collyer’s is the largest course of its kind in the country. Sussex should indeed be very proud of Collyer’s and these cutting-edge facilities.” Georgina Child, who is studying Food and Nutrition, said: “We’ve really enjoyed using the new facilities this year. The kitchen and the laptops are excellent and we are very lucky to have a brilliant teacher in Sally Miller.”

Double poetry success Two Christ’s Hospital sixth-form pupils have been recognised in The Times Stephen Spender Prize 2011, a national competition for Poetry in Translation. Joel Farrance (left in picture) was awarded second prize in the U18 section for his version of Robert Desnos’s surrealist poem Comme, while Oscar Davies was highly commended for his translation of Victor Hugo’s Open Windows. Stephen Walsh, of Christ’s Hospital’s English department, said: “This is the first time Christ’s Hospital has submitted entries in the U18 section. “It is an outstanding achievement in a national competition for two out of our three entries to be recognised by some very distinguished judges.”

Twirlers’ trophies James is flying with Redshank Members of Horsham Bluebelles Baton Twirlers impressed at the International Baton Twirling Championships in Dublin. They won 29 medals and trophies, including overall top team and a championship sash to Sally Bell. The corps has grown to 40 members, aged four to 34, and always

welcomes newcomers. Corps director Carol Wray said: “The main aim of the group is not only to teach baton twirling and dance but to make the girls aware how important it is to work as a team and to support each other.” For more information, phone 01403 264662.

A Pulborough youngster was commended in the RSPB’s Wildart competition for this picture of a Redshank. James Newland, six, said: “I like to go to Pulborough Brooks and love drawing what I’ve seen.” RSPB spokesman Sophie McCallum said: “The competition really encourages children to explore art and nature. “Getting them interested at a young age is really important. Joining a Wildlife Explorer Group is a great way for them to learn, get outside and experience nature.” For more information about RSPB Wildlife Explorers, visit www.rspb. org.uk/youth

Free education for two-year-olds About 1,300 children in West Sussex are expected to benefit when free early education is extended to 140,000 disadvantaged two-yearolds. The government plans to make the free entitlement of 15 hours per week of early education more flexible, so it can be taken between 7am and 7pm across two days instead of three. Liberal Democrat MP Sarah Teather, the children’s minister, has announced a consultation on how this commitment will be implemented. West Sussex county councillor

Colin Wilsdon, Lib Dem spokesman for children and young people, said: “Helping 1,300 two-year-old children from the poorest backgrounds in West Sussex  will benefit them for years to come. “High-quality early education is the key to making a difference early on in a child’s life and helping to make Britain a fairer and more equal society. “Helping people to get out of poverty and therefore improving social mobility is a Liberal Democrat priority in government.

Council chiefs are on the verge of axing the annual funfair in the Carfax, sparking a furious response from residents. The Resident understands Horsham District Council is considering scaling down the traditional October festival, which includes the funfair, and/or moving some activities from the Carfax to The Forum. These options have not been officially confirmed, but the council says it is planning other events next year and may need to save money in October. Jeweller and pawnbroker Dominic Sakakini, based in the Carfax, told The Resident: “It’s 19 years of history, but the council is trying to wipe it out. All the council seem to say is ‘we haven’t got any money’.

John O’Sullivan commented: “The council is full of coffin-dodgers who have absolutely no idea how to run things. “Get rid of the lot of them. Start afresh with new people who want to move this town forward.” ‘Wendylady Inkpin’ added: “They would

rather see all the businesses close in Horsham and it become a ghost town. “All you are meant to do is eat in all the restaurants and drink loads of coffee. The council never promote anything unless it is in their interest.” Siobhan Blakey said: “One of the advantages of living here with a young family is events like this. Perhaps the councillors would care to visit the local primary and infant schools in person and explain to the children.” Continued on Page 4

The voice of youth It is rare that a young person is able to express their opinions to adults without being judged or the opinions dismissed. The House of Commons event gives us, the youth, a voice. It is a positive and pivotal step in changing the negative stigma attached to the youth of today. Youth Parliament gave me the ability to see how a real debate functions. We had the pleasure of meeting John Bercow (Mr Speaker himself) and witness how a debate is chaired. To be involved in something that is so monumental while having the privilege to represent

other youths in my constituency is incredible. The topics we debated were put through a vigorous process of discussion to ensure we chose the perfect campaign to bring about change. We were also lucky enough to get a mention during Prime Minister’s Question Time. Many young people feel disenfranchised with politics, but it is important to actively take part in the political process to make a change. Youth Parliament is a step in the right direction towards creating a link between my generation and politics. The whole experience was amazing, to say the least.

Don’t piddle on the �loor I was wondering if my current gripe was relevant to this esteemed newspaper since it relates to the rail service, which is a national issue. Then I remembered that, like me, many of you are forced to suffer the indignities visited upon us by the train operators. Simple grumbles really, like why are train toilets so ghastly? Not only do they always stink, but you’re always terri�ied that the stupid door will slide open by itself while you’re ‘In �lagrante delicto’. What do foreign visitors think of us? What do they say about us when they get home? “They piddle on the �loors in their trains!” Have you ever noticed that bus and train timetables are not related to each other? Why haven’t they �igured this out over the last 150 years or so? You see, it works like this. The

bus will arrive 10 minutes after your train has left or conveniently 45 minutes before the next one arrives, thus enabling your frostbite to get a proper hold before travel. It’s all designed to add to the adventure of travel. And don’t ever believe your seat reservation – Carriage F, Seat 80A, Window, Table, Forward Facing, Power Supply – because the train provided will only have three carriages, A, B and C, with no F in seats, no window, no table and no power supply. So stand up all the way to Reading, pregnant or not. And no refund either, because unless you pay extra to reserve your seat, the terms and conditions rule that out. Another monopoly treating the long-suffering public with disdain. I know you’re annoyed too, but please try not to piddle on their �loors. Jay Harris Parsonage Road, Hen�ield

Parking fees should be cut Horsham simply does not have enough quality shops to warrant even the present parking charges. Guildford, for instance, is a far superior shopping destination and their parking charges are very

reasonable. Why can’t we be innovative and reduce the charges and see how many more shoppers we attract because of it? To suggest people don’t mind paying more is arrogant to say the least. D Chandler Via www.the-resident.co.uk

We don’t need this glitzy sporting indulgence I realise that the following is not going to make me the most popular reader of The Resident. The historic Olympic torchcarrying relay will bypass Horsham, travelling through Crawley and Brighton. And for this omission, I feel we should be eternally grateful. In my view, the modern Olympic Games have lost touch with the original founding values. The Games now pander almost exclusively to national vanity and commercial greed. I can recall the last Olympic Games to be held in the UK. That was in 1948

at the White City Stadium. Britain was still recovering from �ive years of total war. Even so, in that age of austerity and rationing, the Games were a great success – without all the glitz and glamour which have become the norm. Yes, I look forward to watching some of the more traditional events on TV, but I can well do without a bout of women’s boxing or the spectacle of beach volleyball. What is the next ‘sport’ to be included – darts? It is obvious that many of the most sort-after spectator seats have

already been allocated to sponsoring companies and bigwigs from the City of London. And it is worth noting that two of the chosen caterers for the Games are those American icons – McDonalds and Coca Cola. So much for Great Britain! Call me a spoilsport or worse. But I genuinely feel we shall still be paying for this piece of glitzy sporting indulgence for many years to come. This at a time when Europe is being plunged into the greatest �inancial crisis in living memory. Truly, we must have more money than sense.

Sainsbury’s continues its year of fundraising for chosen charity partner Guide Dogs for the Blind. Staff members at the Horsham store raised £442 on Halloween by dressing up in scary style. Staff paid £1 each to dress up for the occasion and held a collection at the front of the store. Since the Guide Dogs for the Blind was chosen earlier this year to bene�it from the supermarket’s support, it has raised almost £3,000 for the charity. Marge Healey, a charity coordinator, said: “We are well on the way to reaching our target for this year and are so grateful for all our customers support so far.”

Julie added: “A lot of thought and hard work has gone into making the �ilm and the app, but it’s also been a lot of fun. We’re sure that customers will really enjoy them and also take on board the advice they include.”

Business Builder Club members get into a Scrum Simon Pringle of Red River Software was the guest speaker at this month’s Business Builder Club networking meeting. Simon talked about how an IT methodology called ‘Scrum’ can be implemented into any business. He said: “Scrum breaks down a project into small chunks with deliverable items. For a changing environment the method works well as it enables continual updates with both a project team and the customer has more of a steer – it’s great for time management.”

Business Builder Club members were shown how the method could work on any project with a dinner party demonstration. They �irstly picked a project team that consisted of a product owner (the customer), scrum master and team workers. Members were shown how this could be broken into small chunks with poker chips to decide on risk and the value of each part of a project. To �ind out more about how Simon works visit www.redriversoftware.co.uk. In other news, Katrina Smith of True Colours Interiors told the group

how she has been commissioned by Ghyll Manor Hotel to refurbish two of its public rooms. (Find out more about that story in The Resident in December). Mandy Knight from Chocoholics also offered members a treat at the end of the meeting, with a taste of their new corporate range.

Spofforths Private Client Services, said: “We are encouraging people to visit the market this year and get into the Christmas spirit. “Once again it is a pleasure to be working alongside Horsham District Council and the Rotary Club on such a fantastic local event. “At Spofforths, we are keen to support local charities as they make such a difference to our community.” John Le Rossignol from Horsham Rotary Club added: “Rotary is delighted to once again have the support of Spofforths in the organisation and running of this important annual event, which raises much-needed funds for many local charities.”

Boost for breast cancer care from lettings agent

Alex Leigh and Linda Munden

Lines and James raised more than £300 for Breast Cancer Care throughout October. The lettings agents spent the whole month fundraising for the charity, which aims to provide people affected by breast cancer with the best possible treatment, support and advice. Activities included Pink Fridays, at which staff members wore their

Becki is a The venue of choice dab hand at unisex salon Storrington is well known for its great location, nestling on the edge of The South Downs National Park, situated between the beautiful historic towns of Arundel and Horsham but many people miss out on one of the real gems in Storrington, The White Horse Hotel. Dating back over 400 years, this former coaching inn has been a labour of love with its restoration over the past three years turning the once neglected inn into the modern boutique style hotel it has now become. The Ebony Bar, with its comfy leather sofas, wooden floors and modern finish is the perfect setting to start the day with morning coffees, to meet for a light lunch or to unwind with your favourite tipple. This feel continues through to the

Rebecca (Becki) Falkner has joined the team of stylists at Dab Hands Unisex Salon in the Carfax, in Horsham. The hairdresser has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry, having originally trained in London where her clients included celebrities such as Mick Jagger and Deborah Stevenson. Rebecca also came second in the Men’s Image Awards at just 23 years old. Dab Hands offers a noappointment-necessary, high quality styling service, which includes a wash cut and/or blow dry for both men and women. Rebecca said: “Lots of people walk past and think that because there are no appointments that we are just like any other barbers. But we have a very experienced and friendly team of people. There’s such a great atmosphere and buzz about the place. I’m loving working here.” Dab Hands is open six days a week (from Monday to Saturday) at convenient times of day – the salon welcomes customers as early as 8.30am. Prices start from just £11 for men and £16.50 for women.

Culinary delights await, classic dishes with a modern twist that make the most of local Seasonal produce, enough to earn the team recognition in ‘The Sunday Times 20 Best Restaurants with Rooms 2011’ - an achievement that all concerned are proud of! I assure you the 13 en-suite bedrooms have not been forgotten; each individually designed and furnished, with many of the soft furnishing made in-house, some with a grand traditional design and others offering a contemporary flavour. Conferences, private dining and weddings are all strings in The White Horse Hotel’s bow and with the Christmas season fast approaching and reservations already being taken surely this venue is another reason to put Storrington on the map.

Mulled wine and Mondays at salon

The Company hairdressers on Middle Street is about to open on Mondays. The extra day marks the growth of the company and is a testament to the popularity of the salon and its stylists. Paola Norris said: “We’ve decided to open on Mondays because of popular demand. Our customers have been telling us for a while that it would be great if we were open six days a week, and we listened to them. It will mean we can provide our excellent service to more people and at more convenient times.” The first Monday they will open is November 21. The Lounge coffee shop and bar, which is on the ground floor, below The Company hair salon is also introducing mulled wine during the Christmas period. The venue has a license to serve the festive beverage outside.

Business Promotion sponsored by

The friendly face of financial planning Devoting the time to foster close customer relationships is the key to success for Nick Borrow, head of Chandler House Financial Planning Ltd, which has recently moved its head office to Horsham. Nick joined the then Darlingtonbased Chandler House Investments in 1998 as a newly qualified independent financial adviser (IFA) and by 2003 had risen to the position of joint director Springing from its largely local client base, the company increasingly services clients nationwide as referrals continue to fuel business growth. Now fully located at its Kings Court base in the south, Chandler House is embarking on a marketing campaign to raise awareness about its distinctive style of working – one that Nick believes will help dispel the public’s notion of IFAs as “money-grabbing”. “Our focus is on face to face service rather than merely selling financial products,” stresses Nick, “A policy of providing sound service based on strong one-to-one relationships with our clients.” Longevity of those relationships is vital, adds Nick, and that can mean that Chandler House spans the generations in families for whom they provide services. “You could call it a cradle to grave service as we are now dealing with the children of those we started out

servicing. Probate and inheritance tax issues are particularly important for them.” In 2003, Chandler House Investments became Chandler House Financial Planning to reflect the wider scope of services provided. Nick remained a co-director until 2009 when his fellow directors retired, leaving him free to restructure the business as Chandler House Financial Planning Ltd. By 2010, Nick was expanding the business once more, moving down to the South-east. “We’ve retained our clients in the north,” says Nick, “and are now building more local business from our base at 3 Kings Court, which is ideal for our needs.” Chandler House provides a spread of financial services that includes investments, mortgages, life protection (group and personal) wealth and portfolio management, IHT planning and pensions. Whatever the service provided, the same business ethic runs through everything, Nick emphasises. “Clients have to feel that you are giving them sufficient time for what they need, rather than holding a shotgun to their heads, metaphorically, and pressing them to sign on the dotted line there and then. To that end, the face to face contact is vital. When you work for yourself, you can spend years building a good reputation, only for it to be destroyed instantly with poor practice.”

The last few years have witnessed a dramatic turnaround in the nation’s regard for IFAs, who have almost become a dirty word. How is Nick countering such ill-will towards his profession? ”People perceive IFAs as rip-off merchants who are not going to look after them properly. Fortunately, most of our business comes from referrals, which means that an existing client has gained enough confidence in the quality of our services to recommend us to someone else or another company, so we are starting off on a positive footing. “Despite that though, we go through the same procedures as we would for a cold lead who had called us in to discuss their requirements. I always explain how we are paid for our services and establish what they are expecting of us, and where our job starts and finishes. These are key aspects to get right from the start.” The Financial Services Authority, the IFAs’ watchdog, is laying down more stringent regulation to stimulate great transparency in the profession, with the hope of ensuring that customers and clients are more confident that they are receiving best practice. ”Greater clarity of what IFAs do has got to be a step in the right direction,” says Nick. “The move towards more packaged services and products is inevitable – it’s a minefield out there

for clients. But that can only go so far. Clients often approach me because they cannot decide which products to buy, and that’s where the importance of interpreting what they are telling you becomes critical to them choosing what is right for them.” Higher standards of professional qualifications are being introduced nationally too. Those who have not achieved the Level 4 diploma by the end of 2012 will be unable to practice. Nick’s already reached the required standards so can move forward confidently with servicing Chandler House’s growing client base.

Contrasting with the “quality time” that Nick spends with establishing client needs is the streamlining of the IFA sector’s administrative requirements. ”Much of the back office function is web-based and conducted via email,” says Chandler House office manager Tracy Styan, “and after three years striving to become paperless, we are finally there, leaving us more space for face to face meetings with clients.”

Petticoat perfection as the 60s are revived Rachael Pratt

Review

Dreamboats and Petticoats, a show that has recently been featured on the West End, had recently debuted at The Hawth in Crawley. The show was a sell-out, and a triumph to say the least. After being kindly told ‘please switch off your phones – they weren’t even invented in the 60’s’ the fizzy, good-spirited musical began. Lights dazzling and a set showing off the era with posters of ‘Carry On Teacher’ and skinny little models dressed in polka dots immediately captivated the audience. Already it was obvious that this

show wasn’t about subtlety or drama, not the type of show where you sit there drifting off – it’s dynamic fun and has you smiling, laughing and dancing from start to finish. The story follows young wannabe musician Bobby (David Ribi) and his quest to get the girl, become a rock star and be the one the world talks about. But his plan isn’t as simple as he’d like because Elvis look-alike Norman (Ben James-Ellis) is after the same girl, the same rock star dream and enormous popularity. The two compete in a song writing competition and fight for lad-magnet Sue but unfortunately for Norman, Bobby’s got a secret weapon, best friend Ray’s (Josh Little) little sister

Laura (understudy for the evening Francesca Loren) who’s a piano phenomenon and secretly has a crush on Bobby. A variety of 60’s songs featuring artists such as The Platters and Chubby Checker, jam-packed into a production starring actors that meet the expectations of those on the West End stage; what’s not to love? If you need a pick-me-up, the show’s definitely for you. Not only are the actors amazingly talented with Katie Birtill’s (Sue) warm, sultry and sizzling vocals and Anna Campkin’s (Donna) distinct and wonderfully dominating character, the on-stage orchestra really gives it that edge making the show all that more exciting – sounds of saxophones, pianos

Acoustic array of talent closes Battle of the Bands Danny Randon Music Reporter

the-resident.co.uk/entertainment

After a relentless six-week-long musical melee, Horsham Battle Of The Bands 2011 came to a stunning yet stripped-down conclusion on October 13 in the acoustic/ songwriters heat. Opening the show at The Holbrook Club was Mailman (real name Jamie Stanley), a man of many aliases on the local live music scene, whose intricate melodies and soaring guitar strums fused together emotion, intelligence and talent. Carpenters-esque boy-girl duo Pipe & Tabor then followed, possessing an ability to revive the fun-loving vibes of the summer with their elegant and nostalgic acoustic folk, comprised of sugary-sweet vocal harmonies and some impressive guitar work. Next up on stage was Lesley Spiers, a writer of songs about “life, the universe and everything in between”. While Lesley’s stage personality was bubbly and rather wacky, her rhythmic soul-laced numbers were beautifully reserved. Formed by members of a handful of locally acclaimed bands, four-piece Strum Lovin’ Criminals then took to the stage with an interesting array of instruments, and showcased their enigmatic upbeat sound, glowing

with warmth and texture. At just 16 years old, Taygan Paxton was the youngest act in the heat, and yet still produced tune after tune, each filled with drivin rhythm and dynamic chord patterns. A bout of mid-song audience participation also added some fun to her set. Alice Ella was up next, armed with a keyboard and a stunning voice; her

My brother Jak’s band ‘won in the originals competition, so big up the Paxtons! ’

Taygan Paxton receiving her prize from HDLMA Chairman, Mandy Ansell

predominantly poppy tracks were irrefutably catchy, but a real sense of passion was conveyed when Ella delved into the more somber (and stronger) material. The last act of the evening was Aly Star, whose anarchic rock star image contrasted with his sensitive and sweet love songs. While a full backing band might be beneficial for young Aly, there’s no doubting his ability to write some fine compositions. The podium was then cleared for Horsham District Live Music Alliance chairwoman Mandy Ansell to announce the results. Third place went to Mailman, while second place went to Pipe & Tabor, before Taygan Paxton was crowned the winner. “I’m absolutely ecstatic!” said Taygan, clutching her prize of £150. She added: “My brother Jak’s band (Tell Wolves Tales) won in the originals competition, so big up the Paxtons!” But what’s next for our acoustic champion? “I just need to keep gigging now, and see where that takes me.” And so Horsham Battle Of The Bands comes to an end for another year. After such an intense competition, next year’s acts sure have a lot to live up to! Horsham Battle Of The Bands 2011 is supported by Funktion One Research and Weltons Brewery.

It’s time for tapas at Med Cafe Steve Goodwin

Review

Med Cafe, Piries Place, Horsham

If you were visiting Horsham and in search of a restaurant, you might not stumble upon the town’s only Spanish dining experience. Perched on the edge of one of Piries Place’s entrance alleyways, Med Cafe recently underwent a transformation. Formally El Bodegon, an established jewel in Horsham’s burgeoning dining scene, manager Paulo Soares oversaw a complete refurbishment,

Spanish ham selection and Calamari

new menu and change of concept, aiming to expand on their existing loyal customer base and attract a new, younger audience. Paulo is one of Horsham’s characters. Something that the town’s everexpanding number of chain restaurants lack, and more the pity. As an independent business ourselves, we relish any opportunity to help our fellow locals, and were delighted when Paulo invited The Resident to lunch, so much so that three of us went along. Part of Med Cafe’s new approach is it’s no longer simply a restaurant. It’s

also a bar, featuring live music, cocktails and a 36-variety strong wine list. Local favourite Alice Ella has performed in recent weeks, and there are more live acts scheduled. The menu focus is also now firmly on tapas, the Spanish snack-sized dishes, of which I have been a devotee for a long time. The first arrival at our table was the traditional Spanish green and black olives, served with bread, extra virgin olive oil and a lovely sweet balsamic vinegar. As we grazed Paulo told of his disappointment with people’s apparent knowledge and acceptance of tapas, instead preferring the popular trends of the Italian, Indian and Chinese cuisine. He referred to a recent party of 25, where the majority didn’t understand tapas, and instead opted for the other main course dishes on the menu (which Med Cafe also caters for). Overall the menu is a mediterranean affair, with Italian influences as well, but it’s the tapas that Paulo is really passionate about. “Tapas is what defines us, because no-one else does it. We are different.”

I try to conquer ‘people’s hearts with

the quality of the food

The Spanish ham selection came out next, which never disappoints, along with red peppers stuffed with crab meat pate (peppery and a unanimous favourite - for now) and Ajillo Chicken (chicken in white wine and vinegar). We were also presented with the Calamari Fritti, which was fresh and tasted it, not rubbery in the slightest as it often can be. Following these came the Tortilla (Spanish omelette), Spanish Meatballs, and Gambas Al Ajillo (prawns in a garlic sauce). Having enjoyed a holiday in Seville in southern Spain a few years ago I can vouch for the authenticity of the dishes. It’s a terrible cliche to say that I was transported back to the winding cobbled streets of the Seville Old Town, the food evoking fond memories of sitting at the bustling bar at Las Columnas (Google it), so I won’t. The great thing about tapas is you get to try several dishes. They can be a quick and easy snack or a large meal. Paulo pointed out that he had actually served us with smaller than normal portions so that we could try a larger variety. A quick browse of the

Spanish Meatballs

menu proved that Med Cafe is one of the cheaper places to eat out in Horsham. Paulo told us of his investment in quality ingredients, which he has put more importance on than marketing or image. “When you work with quality you can’t go wrong” he said. “I try to conquer people’s hearts with the quality of the food.” Next to arrive at our table was a large dish of chilli mussels (if you like mussels and a spicy tomato sauce they hit the spot), lamb kidneys with mushrooms in a cherry wine sauce (nice and rich) and a ‘house special’ dish - the Chorizo A La Riojana. Not a usual tapas dish, this spicy sausage is pan fried with shallots and red wine. It was delicious and a favourite with all of us. We didn’t sample any of the desserts on offer - homemade by chef Miguel and can be served on a platter so you can enjoy a selection. “People love it!” said Paulo. Paulo’s enthusiasm for his restaurant-bar is wonderful, and while he’s keen to offer his Spanish alternative to East Street’s Italian domination, he’s also really eager to not just be another restaurant on Horsham’s growing list. “We are not El Bodegon” he explained. “With the cocktails and live music, we are different”. We were told that a new, larger tapas menu is imminent, so that’s lunch sorted next week then.

Entertainment

A season of superb cinema at The Capitol Happy penguins, Bella and Edward, a girl with a dragon tattoo and Zac Efron! Expect one box office blockbuster after another this holiday season, right here in Horsham

The Capitol’s Autumn season of movies kicks off in style – with the next chapter in the epic saga – Twilight. Opening on the same day in Horsham as it does anywhere else, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 sees Bella and Edward and those they love deal with a chain of consequences as a result of their marriage, honeymoon, and a baby. Find out what will happen and whether Jake will finally get closer to getting Bella, in the next instalment. If it’s romance and comedy you are after, then come and see Woody Allen’s romantic fantasy comedy Midnight In Paris, a story about a family, which includes a young couple, who travel to Paris for business and have their lives transformed. In December, My Week With

Marilyn - a film based on the memoirs of Colin Clark - depicts Marilyn Monroe’s numerous clashes with her imperious, classically trained director, maddened by his star’s method acting and her ever-present drama coach. Then, an all-star ensemble cast which includes Zac Efron, Josh Duhamel, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Biel come together for New Years Eve. It’s a romantic comedy with intertwining stories of a group of New Yorkers as they navigate their way through romance over the course of New Year’s Eve. For action and thrills don’t miss Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which sees Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr. Watson join forces to outwit their fiercest adversary, Professor Moriarty. If it’s a thriller you want, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which is based on the popular trilogy by Stieg

Larsson, stars Daniel Craig. Journalist Mikael Blomkvist searches for a woman who has been missing for forty years with the help of Lisbeth Salander, a young computer hacker. For younger movie-fans, Arthur Christmas finally reveals the incredible, never-before-seen answer to every child’s question at this time of year: “How does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?” The answer: Santa’s exhilarating, ultrahigh-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. Plus, returning to the big screen are those loveable dancing penguins in Happy Feet Two which takes audiences back to the magnificent landscape of Antarctica in 3D. For more information about The Capitol’s Autumn film programme or to book tickets visit www. thecapitolhorsham.com or call the box office on 01403 750220.

The Locrian Ensemble’s Christmas show is one of the hottest tickets of the season wherever they perform. They are firmly established as one of Britain’s most popular touring groups, with a host of television and film credits to their name. In lavish period costume, and in front of an evocative candlelit setting, these charismatic singers perform

favourites including carols, string medleys of familiar Christmas tunes, and seasonal surprises. They are joined by the evergreen Jill Washington, West End star soprano of Phantom of the Opera, who sings tunes from Handle’s Messiah to White Christmas, the 12 Days of Christmas and Walking in the Air, accompanied by shimmering strings and thrilling

harp playing. This is the perfect way to get into the true spirit of Christmas. This magical evening will be the best Xmas present you can give! On stage Thursday, December 15 at 7.30pm. To book tickets or for information visit www. thecapitolhorsham.com or call 01403 750220.

Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents’ business trip. Gil falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but his daily walks at midnight could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he’s about to marry.

The saga continues, with Bella and Edward married, and Jacob’s love for his childhood sweetheart as strong as ever. Will she become immortal? Will she have a baby vampire? Find out just how this epic series unfolds in the penultimate part. Box Office Babies Showing - Tuesday 10.30am

Villages steeped in history These villages and hamlets lie on the very edge of the Weald and in a landscape that was dominated by woodland and a geology that created wooded glades. In the previous article the villages lay in a more open landscape, lying between the South Downs and the rising land of the high weald, now we are in the high weald itself and looking at villages whose origins are told in their very names. It is through the great Saxon woodland that stretched from the edge of London down to the coast that these three villages and hamlets owe their origin. For in the years after the Romans left―an era that is forever known in Hollywood and popular history books as the Dark Age―this area was sparsely settled due to plague. This area of land was hacked out by farmers who had settled along the coast, creating a woodland pasture or rough enclosure, or ruh spaer, giving rise to the name Rusper, while nearby Roffey got its name from a deer park. With 1066 and all that, changes in ownership occurred that greatly affected these three settlements. The great park of St. Leonard’s forest was created, for when the Normans, those Viking warriors who settled in Northern France, arrived they loved hunting―not just for the larder but for the sport. To control the great hunting park of St. Leonard’s they constructed fences and ditches and access into the park was through gateways; the names Faygate and Colegate reveal their origins, with Colegate suggesting a link with charcoal burners. In Rusper, some 10,611 steps from Horsham according to the folk singer and cobbler Henry Burstow, the Norman lords of Bramber decided to establish a convent around 150 years after invading these shores. The convent was small, housing just 10 nuns, but when the convent’s cemetery was discovered in 1840, 40 female skeletons were found and reburied in the Church in two large coffins. A later resident of the church was Rev. Synott who published probably the best title to a village memoir ever: Five Years All text ©Horsham Museum

of Hell in a Country Parish, but that was after he was prosecuted by a church court and found innocent. As for the convent, the gates to it can be seen on the road from Rusper to Horsham, while at the British museum a unique twelfth century Limoges enamelled chalice, found in one of the nun’s graves, can be seen. One family associated with Rusper was the Broadwoods, who became world famous for pianos and nationally known for folk music. In the late nineteenth century Lucy Broadwoood collected folk tunes, asking Ralph Vaughan Williams to record songs. In 1904 he went to The Wheatsheaf Inn at Kingsfold, near Warnham, where he collected ten songs from five different singers. There he took down ‘The Red Barn’ or ‘the Murder of Maria Martin,’ a tune he used for the hymn ‘I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say’ (hence the tune ‘Kingsfold’). It was ‘Monks Gate’ that Vaughan Williams used for the hymn ‘He Who Would Valiant Be’ that proved to be his most popular composition. It would be possible to say that nothing major excited this region during the bulk of our history, but that would miss out on some key events, including Henry VIII closing the convent and Elizabeth I getting hold of St. Leonard’s Forest, and through her weakness having to curry political favours ending in a destruction of the ancient woodland. This made Faygate and Colgate meaningless names as the great hunting parks ceased to exist. In fact so bad was the land that in the Regency period William Cobbett described it as bleak and miserable, some of the worst land he had seen. It would also make it difficult for the serpent described in a pamphlet of 1614 by a widow of Colgate to hide. But by the late nineteenth century the area was attracting wealthy owners from the City who built or enhanced existing houses, creating a number of leisure estates. This was helped by the railway from Horsham to Three bridges, which opened in 1848 for Faygate. In the late twentieth century a member of the Gucci family lived at Rusper, continuing this tradition as a place to live.

Southwater Leisu

Southwater through the ages Southwater Leisure Centre Southwater can be dated as far back as the Neoliths, 4500 BC. Evidence of this comes from finds at Jackrells Farm, Southwater where two arrow heads and three axes were found south of the river in Horsham. Dinosaur bones were also found in the old brickyard. Other finds date back to 500 BC show the beginning of an organised trading society in and around Southwater and the Horsham District. During the Roman Empire the Weald in which Southwater is situated began to produce iron. When the brickworks started there were many archaeological finds in Victorian times. The first written references to Southwater date back to the Calendar of Patent Rolls in 1346 when it was known as “Suthwatre” but refers not to a village but an area of scattered farms – south of the water, which remained so until the late 20th Century. The water in this instance is probably the River Arun which runs through Horsham, although the village also has water-courses leading to and from the River Adur. Southwater lies just four miles south of Horsham in West Sussex and within the Parish are the hamlets

of Christ’s Hospital, Newfoundout and Stammerham, all of which are thought to date back to medieval times and are on the path of old road systems. The landscape of the village has not changed much since the late 19th Century the overriding feature being that of open fields broken by shaws, ghylls and hedgerows, many with oak and lime. The major woodland, Pond Farm Ghyll, runs through the village north to south and is carved by a stream through the harder Horsham stone fragmented on either side by new housing estates. Trees are very predominant throughout the village, both in the new developments and the parts of the Parish which date back to the 18th Century, and border many of the public open spaces. Much of the soil is Wealdon Clay, which is heavy and sodden in the winter and bone dry during a hot summer. Wildlife is still abundant with deer, foxes, rabbits, badgers, various bird species such as skylarks and bullfinches, not to mention butterflies such as the Purple Emperor. One of the most noticeable and talked about features today are the road traffic calming measures, with speed humps and

chicanes both on the main Worthing Road and at various other points. Worthing Road is one of the longest roads in West Sussex. The major housing in the village dates back before 1940 with many close to the old brickworks and railway line. Both these were finally lost in 1980, the Country Park and Downslink path emerging in their stead. Many of the older farms and cottages, such as Great House Farm and Wheelwright and Jasmine Cottages, date back further and are of Sussex style, whitewashed weather-boards with heavy stone slab roofs and stone floors. With no distinct architectural style, in the main the modern developments have stuck to a hung tile style and to a degree weather boarding, all with gardens and off-road parking. There are three areas which are considered modern in design. The IBM Computer Centre which overlooks the country park has large smoked glass panels giving a futuristic look yet is not visible from the Worthing Road and is well landscaped. The second is the new RSPCA headquarters; this again is futuristic but built to exacting environmental

specifications with solar heating/ventilation systems. This building is situated by the new Oakhurst Industrial Park to the north of the village, demand for the new industrial units have exceeded all expectations. Finally, the completion of Lintot Square has brought about a total transformation of what was a 1950 / 60’s industrial estate; thus providing a heart for the community. The buildings incorporate not only the Sussex style but also modern design elements, and provide private housing, affordable housing and retail units.

Q A

I am selling my later father’s house and wondered whether I should clear it of all the furniture?

A very good question as this situation crops up quite often. The simple answer is that if empty houses were easy to sell, then developers would not go to the expense and trouble of furnishing and fitting out Show Homes. This is because most of us cannot easily gauge how much furniture an empty room will accommodate; and most people’s perception of the size of a three piece suite or a double bed is often far larger than the reality. So they will walk into an empty room and wrongly assume that it will not take a double bed for instance, when it would easily fit in. On the other hand, an overly cluttered house will simply confuse buyers and give the often wrong impression that the rooms are smaller than they actually are; especially if buyers cannot move freely around the property and walk to the windows to see the views for example. So as in most situations, there is a happy medium and the following list is in my opinion the best-case scenario: • Leave larger items of furniture in situ such as sofas, beds and dining tables as it helps to give scale to rooms. • Clear away any valuable or fragile items to protect them from possible damage. • Clear all surfaces including window cills, mantelpieces, sideboards and kitchen worktops of clutter and/or ornaments. • Ensure buyers can walk into and across all the rooms unhindered. • Take down net curtains as will allow far more light in; one of the most important selling points of any property.

If you think about it logically, you are going to have to clear the house at some stage anyway, so you might as well start the process when the house goes onto the market as it will help the property to sell. The only time when I would recommend stripping the house completely is when the furniture is so far past its sell-by date that it will actually have a negative impact on the presentation. If you would like advice on selling your property please call me on 01403 264962, pop into our office at 34 South Street, Horsham or email me at ‘rossattwood@harperjames.co.uk’.

Q A

Is it the right time to remortgage?

The last few months have seen some positive activity in the mortgage market with many banks and building societies being proactive in their search for market share. Although the Bank Of England have kept interest rates at 0.5% for over two years now, many lenders have been reducing the mortgage rates that are available . The interest rates being offered are also becoming more competitive with new lenders entering the market place and established banks and building societies increasing there offerings. The “buy to let” market, which has been starved of choice over the last three years, is finally seeing some competition as far as lenders and interest rates. This could re-ignite an investor’s appetite and again help towards getting the housing market moving. For any borrowers on lenders standard variable rate’s, now could be the perfect time to look around for a better deal. If you are looking for peace of mind and security over a number of years, fixed rates are at record lows. The more equity you have, the better the rate you are likely to be offered. For those who are more adventurous, tracker mortgage’s are also offering great value. Although your mortgage rate will follow whatever the Bank of England decide to do with interest rates, our view is that it will be some time before interest rates start to rise. With offset mortgages still available and most products having overpayment options, there has never been a better time to review your finances and make sure you have the best mortgage product on offer. Some scheme’s are fee’s free to arrange and in some instances, the lender is actually paying the borrower to take the mortgage out! To find out more information about the mortgage products that are now available, please contact me on 01403 268562. Alternatively if you would like to ask a question, please e-mail info@mercierallen.co.uk.

Q

We live in Billingshurst and our nextdoor neighbours in (houses are semidetached) are going to have two rooms and a bathroom built into their loft space – not uncommon in our road. We have signed a form (mainly, as I understand it, a formality) and according to the plans it does not infringe on our privacy any more than at present. I have a copy of the Party Wall Act 1996, but it does not really say what I should be aware of. I am wondering if there is anything I should do to safeguard my position before work starts.

A

You don’t specify exactly what kind of form you have signed, or whether your neighbours’ surveyor served a Party Wall Notice on you. But since you have mentioned the Party Wall Act, you must have suspicions about this. The Party Wall etc Act 1996 requires building owners to notify their adjoining owners before carrying out works on the party wall itself. Your neighbours would not have to serve a notice simply to inform you they were doing a loft conversion, but they would if the work involved removing chimney breasts, cutting into the party wall to insert new steel beams or flashings, raising the height of the wall, or excavating close to the wall at ground level. If any of these actions are proposed, they should have served a notice on you two months in advance, and invited you to either consent or dissent. It is usually wise for the adjoining owner to dissent, in which case an independent surveyor has to be appointed (paid for by the building owner who proposes the works) to draw up a Party Wall Award, which safeguards your rights. This is explained in more detail in a government booklet, obtainable free by calling 0303 444 0000 or downloaded free from www.communities.gov.uk.

Please note that this article does not constitute as advice, anyone seeking independent advice should contact an independent financial adviser. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage Mercier Allen and Associates Limited is an Appointed Representative of IN Partnership the trading name of The OnLine Partnership Limited which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

Renault Scénic beats competitors Olli Nott Motors Reporter

olli@the-resident.co.uk

Lifestyle Renault is delighted with the results of the What Car? Green Awards and Next Green Car Awards of 2011, as its Renault Scénic model managed to steam past competitors to be crowned the best MPV at both awards. Both schemes reward cars that major on green credentials and offer customers models which value the environment, but without any compromise. Fending off a series of talented challengers, the Renault Scénic 1.6 dCi Stop & Start triumphed, thanks to its frugal engine and low carbon emissions. The French marque’s latest stateof-the-art diesel engine impressively combines the lower emissions of any MPV with the most power for an engine of its size on sale today, and yet still returns 64.2 mpg on the combined cycle. In spite of its fuelsipping nature, performance has not been compromised, with 0-62mph possible in just 10.3 seconds. “The key to a good MPV is practicality and conformability” says Peter Isted, Managing Director of Lifestyle Europe. “This means creating a car that is large enough to accommodate multiple passengers

and have room for any luggage or equipment the driver may be carrying. Due to this, the engine must be powerful enough to be able to support a larger load. However, this has caused problems for those who are looking for more eco-friendly and cost-effective vehicles. Renault has resolved this by creating a model which can meet all of these requirements. Renault has now been recognised for this with the two green car awards.” The Scénic is an impressive model, and is in fact so eco-friendly that it currently does not cost anything to tax. Despite this, the engine still happily boasts an impressive 128bhp, perfect for carting around a large family and their possessions with ease. The Scénic hasn’t skimped on additions either, incorporating features such as including automatic lights and wipers and heated mirrors as standard, as well as a host optional extras available. All of this is available from only £19,990 on the road. For more information on the fantastic award winning Renault range, why not pop to your local Lifestyle Renault dealership, or visit the website at www.lifestyleeurope.co.uk. Order books are open and you could even get your own car before Christmas! But don’t hold me to it!

Peter Stevens, Managing Director at Stevens, comments: “The Vauxhall MasterFit Winter Safety Check offers Vauxhall owners outstanding value and peace of mind that their vehicle is ready to face the winter months.”

Stevens is always keen to pass on their expert advice to local motorists, and during the winter season, it’s more important than ever to stay safe whilst on the move. Peter Stevens adds: “When faced with severe conditions, think carefully about whether you really do need to travel. If you do need to drive on icy or snowy roads, plan your journey and drive very smoothly. Slow down gently by easing off the throttle and try to avoid applying the brakes. And just in case anything does happen,

it’s always worth carrying a suitable emergency kit in the car with you.” Other top tips from Stevens include: • Check your car’s electrical systems are all working on a regular basis • Ensure your tyres have adequate tread (1.6mm is the legal minimum) • Keep tyre pressures at the levels recommended in your car’s handbook • Keep your windscreen clear and clean your windows outside as well as inside the car • If your windscreen in misting up, use the air conditioning to keep the

air dry Peter Stevens adds a final reminder to motorists: “Remember, the speed that you can stop from is a bus length on a dry warm day, but it can take the whole length of a football pitch on ice.” For further information about the Vauxhall MasterFit Winter Safety Check, please visit Stevens at 78 Billingshurst Road, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, W.

All-new 155mph Astra VXR revealed Hot on the heels of the recently launched GTC, these are the first official pictures of the new Astra VXR, which goes on sale next year and is set to become one of the most powerful cars in its class and the fastest production Astra in Vauxhall’s history. Based on the GTC’s platform and powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged direct injection engine, the Astra VXR produces 280bhp and a mighty 400 torques, enough for it to achieve a top speed of 155mph. But while the Astra VXR is based on the new GTC, it has benefited from a raft of bespoke chassis modifications, transforming it into a focused, highperformance coupe. Setting it apart from all other current Astras is a specially developed mechanical limited slip differential, which works on the front wheels. In conjunction with the GTC’s sophisticated HiPerStrut (High Performance Strut), the LSD provides the Astra VXR with exceptional lateral grip and traction through bends. Further changes to the chassis include brakes developed by competition supplier, Brembo, and standard fitment of Vauxhall’s fully

adaptive FlexRide system. In the Astra VXR, FlexRide features not only a Sport button, but a VXR button, offering drivers the choice of two, more focused stages of damper, throttle and steering control. Much of the chassis sign-off was done at the Northern Loop of the Nürburgring (Nordschleife), and was overseen by Le Mans 24-hour race winner, “Smokin’ Jo” Winkelhock. “We have devised a great package that will convince even the most experienced and enthusiastic drivers – and not just on the Nürburgring!” said Winkelhock. Visual identifiers for the Astra GTC comprise a set of specially sculpted front and rear bumpers, side skirts, an aerodynamic roof spoiler and two exhaust tail pipes in a trapeze shape. Inside, the VXR’s cabin gets specially made performance seats with embossed logos in the backs, a flat-bottomed VXR steering wheel and upgraded instruments. The UK is by far the Astra VXR’s biggest market in Europe, so sales interest in the car is set to be strong. More details, including pricing and on-sale dates, will be revealed early next year. I’ll be front of the queue!

Horsham celebrate at Tooting and Mitcham James Herd Football

Hugo Langton has been appointed Horsham manager after a successful period as temporary boss. The Hornets’ form has improved under Langton, including a 2-2 draw at Tooting and Mitcham on Saturday, when Horsham came within three minutes of victory. He said of his appointment: “I’m absolutely made up. From the moment I walked into the club as the assistant manager, I’ve enjoyed my time. It’s a great club. “I’ve been at football clubs where there’s been very disruptive stuff going on, so it’s brilliant to have the people behind the scenes at Horsham as they are. “I’ve managed before and it’s something I’ve missed doing for a few years. I’ve got the belief in myself that I can manage the football club. “I’m a very happy man and I’ll be even happier if we’re still in the Ryman Premier League come April.

“There’s no pressure on me. I put the pressure on myself because I’m fully aware of how hard this job is. “I won’t leave any stone unturned in my quest to keep the team in the league. And if I do that, I’ll have a lie down for two weeks and celebrate!” Langton has already been busy, having added several players to his �irst-team squad. They include former Napoli apprentice Senny Diedhiou, goalkeeper Tomasz Krul, Nicky Humphrey and Ian Varley. Langton said: “We’ve tightened things up. We’ve brought in a few experienced bodies that the team needed and we’ve been harder to play against. “The Lowestoft manager told me our shape is the best they’ve come across this season. Things like that are great. We’ve just got to keep working on it, building on it and

taking steps forward. “The players have been brilliant, absolutely fantastic, and I can’t speak highly enough of them. They’re a terri�ic bunch. “They’ve all got smiles on their faces, they’re all looking forward to training and looking forward to playing. I think they’d stopped doing that for whatever reason.” Finally, Langton had a message for the fans. He said: “I’d like to thank them all so much for their support so far. Ever since I took over, they’ve been very supportive. “Up at Tooting on Saturday they were singing their hearts out, it was brilliant. I’m going to do my utmost to give them a team to be proud of and that they enjoy watching.” Horsham chairman Kevin Borrett said: “In the time Hugo has been caretaker manager he has recruited some strong players to the squad and performances on the �ield have been much improved. “We will give Hugo all the support he requires and wish him every success in his new role.”

Another Donnelly rant as ref costs YM at least a point Tom Norris Football

Boss Sammy Donnelly blamed referee Colin Mallows for Horsham YMCA’s 1-0 home defeat against 10-man Ringmer. Matt Crane’s dubious foul on Ringmer defender Ryan MacMillan was enough to separate the sides, brother Aaron stepping up to coolly convert the penalty after 81 minutes.

Chances were at a premium throughout as Mallows’ controversial of�iciating governed a lifeless encounter. The �irst 45 was a tedious affair with both sides creating little, although YM’s Timmy Martin �ired off the crossbar. And the second period followed a similar pattern, with the referee rarely allowing the game to �low. Ringmer’s Clive Snell was sent off for a second bookable offence, a

supposed act of simulation in YM’s area, before Mallows took centre stage again with his penalty decision. He also waved away YM’s appeals after a blatant shirt pull on Martin which could easily have seen the winger go down inside the box. Donnelly claimed: “There’s only one person to blame for this result – and that’s him in there. I’ve not been happy with the standard of refereeing this season and it’s cost us the game. “They say refereeing decisions even

themselves out, but that’s twice now I’ve had that this season. How can the referee give a penalty when two big lads have gone up for the ball? “I won’t even talk to him because at the end of the day it’s disgusting. It’s just shocking. He’s ruined the game.” YM have lost seven of their eight home matches in Division 1 of the Sussex County League, scoring only four league goals at Gorings Mead, but have won six times in nine games on the road.

England at The Amex

Sport

Andrew’s hat-trick double Photo by Victoria Thompson

Horsham Sparrows Girls U14

Andy Stonestreet www.northwestsussexseagulls.co.uk

I’ve started to get used to Saturdays without a match. Last week I said I just needed to attend the England U19 match last Thursday to have watched a game at the American Express Community Stadium on every day of the week. That went to plan when I arrived on the first of two NWSS coaches. For these NWSS specials we were joined by the players and some of the parents of the Horsham Sparrows U9 team. A great account of the trip can be found at www.horshamseagull.co.uk I think I can safely say that Horsham Sparrows will be more than welcome to join us again. England played Spain on Saturday, but due to a disgraceful decision by Sepp Blatter and FIFA they weren’t allowed to wear a remembrance poppy on their shirts. The abuse that Blatter and FIFA got before and during the game, through the media and via social media sites, showed just how remote they are from the fans. England won against Spain at Wembley in what was a one-sided game. Somehow after hardly touching the ball in the first half, England scored via a Frank Lampard header just after half time. Scotland played in Cyprus, more known as a holiday destination than for its football, and duly won. The match was never going to be of much interest to me, unless Albion’s Craig Mackail-Smith had scored one or more of the goals. As one of the subs, Craig didn’t have the opportunity to have much of an impact on the game, but he got his chance 30 minutes from time and nearly scored right at the end. He is going through a lean spell with Albion, but as anyone who watches him week in week out will tell you it’s not from him not trying. The goals will come. Hopefully at Southampton tomorrow (Saturday). Interest has been growing steadily in our trips to The Amex, so we are looking at running a second coach. If you haven’t joined us on one of our trips yet, why not give us a go? You might be very pleasantly surprised how easy it is.

Andrew Roberts Youth Football

It was a memorable weekend for Andrew Roberts, who scored hattricks on successive days. Roberts’ treble in the first 20 minutes helped Horsham U15 thrash Polegate Grasshoppers U15 12-1 in the County Cup, a day after he scored three for Lower Beeding and Handcross Lions U15. Harry Lee and Ross Williams each scored twice for the young Hornets, while Callum Nash, Oliver East, Jordan Walser, Jared Ashmole and Glenn Johnson also got on the scoresheet.

Horsham U16 progressed in the County Cup, thanks to a 3-0 win at

Eastbourne United U16. Frequent scorer Jake Legrange and George Hole were forced off with injuries, but Zak Comber scored twice and Harry Smith got the other to help Horsham through. Captain Connor Cushing ran the midfield for Horsham and was also outstanding as Royal United U16 beat East Grinstead Meads U16 6-0 in the Edwin Hill Cup. Debutant Tom Killner-Brown got a brace on his 16th birthday, while goals by Jake Legrange, Jacob Waller, Callum McHale and Joshua Wood’s screamer served to emphasise Royals’ dominance. Horsham Sparrows U16 lost 4-2 at Albury Eagles U16 in Division A of the Horsham and District Youth League (HDYL), despite leading 2-1 through Dan Stutchbury and James Cooper.

Ben Martin, Adam Bolitho and Edvaldo Vicente scored the others, while defender James West also impressed. Andrew Roberts’ hat-trick was the

highlight for Lower Beeding and Handcross Lions U15 as they beat Maidenbower United U15 6-2 in the Fred Sparks Cup.

Horsham Tigers U12 maintained their 100 per cent record, edging a 4-3 thriller against St Paul’s Panthers U12 in the Roffey Robins Frank Giess Memorial Cup.

Eleven Atlantis swimmers will compete for their Horsham schools at the Quays, Southampton, on Saturday, November 26. Sixteen teams nationwide will contest the ESSA Secondary Schools Team Championships, racing in 200m freestyle and medley relays in three age groups – junior, intermediate and senior.

Beth Britton, Yasmin Hooker, Eleanor Morris and Jade Stocker will represent Millais School in both of the junior relays. They are seeded sixth in the free and second in the medley, so have a good chance of finishing among the medals.

The Tanbridge House boys intermediate team, for both the freestyle and medley relays, will

include Sam Carter, Cam Lambourne and Duncan Smith. The fourth member of the team is Josh Trout, who swims for Crawley, although dad Nick is a long-time member of Atlantis. Horsham schools are set to face quality opposition, including Millfield School, Plymouth College and Guildford High School. Andy Lobley, Atlantis’ deputy head coach, said: “It’s great that Horsham will be represented by three school teams at these national finals.”

Unbeaten visitors too good for Horsham Josh Tolhurst Rugby Union

Horsham recorded back-toback league defeats after failing to overcome Folkestone, who are unbeaten in the league this season. Folkestone applied a lot of pressure early on, but Horsham got out of trouble a couple of times through good kicking. Horsham started to have some time with the ball in hand and scored when quick hands by Joe Clarke down the line set up Jamie Gibbs on the wing for a try. But the Kent side came right back at Horsham and soon scored their first points when they won a

penalty, coolly put over by Seyhan Fell. Folkestone used their overlap effectively and found Ben Brooks who charged over to score their first try, giving them a lead they never relinquished. Handling errors prevented the home side from making much ground and they were unable to get any closer to Folkestone as the halftime whistle was blown. A Fell penalty extended the visitors’ lead and Horsham were their own worst enemy as simple

errors again let them down in the final third, even though both sides’ tackling was ferocious. Out of nothing, Horsham thought they had scored when they raced over the line, only to be told that the opposition had touched the ball down before them. Moments later, Folkestone had a player sin-binned for persistent giving away of penalties and pulling the scrum-half into the ruck. But Folkestone won a 5m scrum and poor tackling allowed Jake Johnson to score after picking up from the base. Horsham went for broke but were left thinking what could have been had they been that bit more disciplined. Horsham try: Gibbs.

Wingers do the damage for Horsham youngsters Youth Rugby Union

Horsham U14 were slightly flattered by a 33-0 win against Chichester U14. Chichester were stronger in the scrum, had parity in the lineout, defended well and spent long periods in Horsham’s half. But Horsham were fiercer, more unrelenting in the tackle and edged it in the loose. When the ball did reach their back line, fly-half Callum Boswell and centres Rowan MurphyHunt and Alex Clery ensured quick ball. Pacey wingers George Palmer and Matt ‘Shorts’ Collier each bagged a brace of tries with their customary efficiency. Man of the match Clery scored Horsham’s other try as he intercepted the ball, held off a would-be tackler and raced away to score under the posts.

Chris Nash has signed a one-year extension to his contract, which will see him remain with Sussex until at least the end of the 2014 season. The 28 year-old batsman and spin bowler, who attended Tanbridge House School and Collyer’s, said: “I have played here since I was seven years old, so to still be here is something I am very proud of. “With the players we have in our squad, our work ethic and the brilliant support we receive from everyone involved with Sussex, we are all excited about what we can achieve over the next few years. “I need to continue to score heavily in all forms to help Sussex win trophies and to push my claims for further honours. “This is alongside the hard work I am putting in on my bowling.” Mark Robinson, professional cricket manager at Sussex, said: “He is somebody we are looking to build the club around long term.”

Youth Cricket

Horsham Trinity U12 won two matches in the IDentilam Colts Indoor League at Tanbridge House School. Trinity (65-4, Leon Donnelly 24*) beat Billingshurst U12 (64-4, Donnelly 2-8), Billingshurst (100-2) beat Barns Green U12 (92-3) and Trinity (1093, Oli Lewis 26*, Donnelly 23*) beat Barns Green (54-5, Greg Monk 24*, Harry Simpson 3-11).

Horsham

Another well-deserved, hardfought win escalated Horsham to third in the table. Still being without senior players only served to make Horsham all the more determined. When Old Williamsonians took the lead through a deflection after 10 minutes of even play, John Burroughs quickly restored parity following a short corner. Horsham scrapped for every ball, never allowing the Kent side to settle, but towards the end of the first half the visitors regained the advantage with an open goal. Undaunted, Horsham immediately launched a penetrating raid, culminating with a fine strike from 15-year-old John Kimberley to level the score. And after some end-to-end play, Ed Jackson gave Horsham a justified 3-2 lead on the stroke of half time. Midway through the second half, Old Williamsonians had a goal disallowed as the ball was hit from outside the D. Horsham continued to mount further attacks, backed by resolute defence and brilliant saves by goalkeeper Ed Heathcock. Coach Sam Naismith said: “We were again depleted, with four seniors missing. This was a tremendous effort from some of the best young players I’ve worked with, but as there’s still room for improvement this team will only get better.”

Team manager Al Campbell said: “We had a game plan and sticking to it paid dividends.” A late goal condemned Horsham Ladies to a cruel 2-1 defeat at Maidstone Ladies after the visitors enjoyed by far the lion’s share of possession. Amanda Hilsdon scored in the first half, leaving the teams level at the interval, but further Horsham moves went unrewarded. Team manager Jane Denman said: “Our performances against the higher teams have been good and it was galling to fall at the final hurdle just when we appeared to be in control. “It was especially frustrating to see Maidstone’s goals coming from a short corner and a penalty flick. “We played well again and never gave up but just couldn’t find the net. If we continue to dominate play in the same committed vein, better results will follow.” Horsham travel to league strugglers Kings Alleyns tomorrow (Saturday) before Horsham Ladies entertain thirdplaced Sevenoaks on Sunday (1.30pm).

Southwater’s Rory Cooper suffered frustration when his test session with Colards Motorsport was postponed due to fog at Brands Hatch. Cooper, who attended Southwater Primary School, The Forest School and Collyer’s, recently finished fourth in the 750 Motor Club series with 580 points, only two points from second. The 25-year-old hopes to move into the Ginetta G40 Championship next year – a major step towards the pinnacle of British saloon car racing, the British Touring Car Championship.

Dad Jez said: “The budget we are looking to raise is £25,000. This sounds a lot, but in the scheme of the potential and return it is very cheap in professional racing terms.” Potential sponsors can contact Cooper through The Resident – matthew@the-resident.co.uk • Jolyon Palmer, also from Southwater, produced an outstanding drive in the GP2 Finals Feature Race at the Yas Marina circuit, Abu Dhabi. The 20-year-old started fifth and made up two places early on before crossing the line third, his maiden podium finish. He said: “I am extremely happy and want to say thanks to Addax.”
