An insurance broker in five stones of armour will walk though Dial Post, Southwater and Horsham on his way to London. Dressed as a medieval knight with Czech-made bespoke armour, a shield and a sword, Colin Bickers will trek 55 miles from Worthing to London – starting tomorrow (Saturday) and arriving on Thursday, a day before the Royal Wedding. He said: “Many years ago, my younger brother and two friends invited me out for a drink to celebrate St George’s Day.

“We wore the colours and visited several pubs, but along the way realised that very few people even knew it was St George’s Day. Some even asked us who England were playing at football. “From that day, I vowed to spread the word to anyone who cared to listen – and never again would I go to work on the day of our nation’s patron saint. “Now, about 10 years later, I have spent more money than I care to think about on a full suit of armour and St George’s Day has grown in stature in Worthing.

“This is a special year. Tomorrow is St George’s Day. Next Friday is the Royal Wedding in Westminster. “It has been said that a man carrying around five stone in armour could not walk to London in that time unless he is a super-strong, super-fit, mentally tough and heroic individual. “Unfortunately, I don’t fit the description. I work in an office, eat bad food and don’t do enough exercise. Continued on Page 4

Slinfold Golf and Country Club will celebrate the Royal Wedding with a bucks fizz arrival, television and street party with games, face painting and a fete. Proceeds will go to charity.

The wedding is a ‘joyous occasion and

we are excited about helping to make this day special

General manager Andy McNiven said: “We are delighted to be celebrating the Royal Wedding with our friends, members and the public. “The wedding is a joyous occasion for all and we are excited about helping to make this day special for those who are unable to make it to London.” The Royal Society for the Protection of Accidents (RoSPA) and trading standards officers at West Sussex County Council are urging people to check www.saferfireworks.com if they intend to set off fireworks. Cllr Pete Bradbury, county council Cabinet member for public protection, said: “We want everyone to enjoy their Royal Wedding celebrations while at the same time staying safe.” Train operator Southern will provide extra trains and carriages on the day of the wedding. Spokesman Dave Walker said: “Although the public event is due to finish at around 2.30pm, many people are likely to stay in London for a while, so we are making sure there is plenty of capacity for the journey home.”

A new class that teaches a Chinese method of self-defence starts in Horsham on May 2. The 5 Element, Wing Chunn system will show those who attend the classes how to protect themselves effectively, while also helping to condition the body and mind.

Enjoy following the Royal Family? I do If there was a competition to find the Royal Family’s biggest fan, Julia McCarthy-Fox would surely be in the running to take the crown. Mrs McCarthy-Fox, from Southwater, has been following and photographing the Queen and her family for almost 30 years. After half a million miles, 100,000 photos and at least six months standing behind barriers, she is excitedly preparing for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton next week.

Eight hours in a ‘gale were rewarded with handshakes from the couple

Julia McCarthy-Fox (above) has been photographing the Royal Family for 30 years

All other photos by Julia McCarthy-Fox

Accompanied by mother Jean Fox and 14-year-old son Zachary, she plans to spend the night before the wedding camped out on the street – in a four-person camping chair, complete with a canopy, until about 7am. Mrs McCarthy-Fox has attended royal engagements in Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Denmark, Malta and the United States. She drove almost 14,000 miles while covering the Queen’s Jubilee tour in 2002, later presenting her photos as an exhibition in Windsor,

THE SILVER WOK

Edinburgh, Bury St Edmunds and Wells. Her pictures were also displayed aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia and at Ascot Racecourse, where they were used as the official 100th birthday tribute to the late Queen Mother. When she attended Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first official engagement in Anglesey, a round trip of 650 miles, her eight hours in a gale were rewarded with handshakes from the couple and a set of photos. But this will be her first “really big” wedding as she was still at school when Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer married in 1981. She slept out for the wedding of The Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson in 1986, but believes the next wedding will be something different. Mrs McCarthy-Fox has just filmed a documentary for German television, to be broadcast on Royal Wedding day, and is the real person behind one of the figures in a German novel.

News Continued from Page 1 “I’ve been walking about six miles a day in various states of armour, mostly at night so people can’t see me. “I will be waving my fond farewell to the coastal paradise we call Worthing, dressed in full armour, to carry a rose to Westminster. “I will arrive at The Crown Inn, Dial Post, at about 2.30-3pm on Sunday. Please come along and have Sunday lunch or afternoon drinks with us. Just turn up for a lovely afternoon at a wonderful pub next to the green. “On Monday the route is Dial Post to Southwater, the A24 onto the B2237 Worthing Road, through Horsham, up to Pondtail Road, Langhurstwood Road and Capel.

News in Brief

“It’s the hardest day’s walk at 14 miles, so I could really use some friendly encouragement. “I will complete my mission by casting the rose, from the Rose and Crown in Worthing, in front of the carriage carrying the happy couple. “I’m raising money in online sponsorship through Just Giving for Chestnut Tree House, the only children’s hospice in Sussex, which makes such a difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families. “I will also be collecting on the way – dragging a treasure chest into which much gold will be thrown, I hope – for Help for Heroes and Chestnut Tree House.” Visit www.lonelyknight.com or www.justgiving.com/lonelyknight to make a donation.

Old Town Hall raised The Blue Flash Music Trust raised the issue of the Old Town Hall in a government consultation on best value. Trust treasurer Robert Mayfield said: “Many people questioned the award of the Old Town Hall to Bill’s Produce over the Gondola bid which was seemingly superior in almost every respect. “Consequently, there are similar question marks over whether any new ‘best value’ guidance will be followed by councils that are not prepared to deviate from a particular course of action. “The decision to go for a restaurant solution in the Old Town Hall was based on criteria that did not quantify the wider benefits to the Horsham economy. “Under the new proposed Localism Bill, the council would also be encouraged to consider the ‘social value’ to the community. “A response to the government consultation was therefore submitted on behalf of the trust by our business adviser, Martin Jeremiah.”

Hut campaign boost

Photos by Chris Nation, www.webination.co.uk

A baaarnstorming day for youngsters Excitable children and adults alike descended on Horsham town centre for an animal farm, thanks to Arthur Lodge Veterinary Surgery. As part of the Rotary Club’s charity

market, children and their parents visited the mobile farm which included chickens, Bargain the cow, Dave the donkey, Larry the sheep, Willow the goat, Jemima and Puddle the ducks, Fluffy the rabbit and even Jasmine the gorgeous golden retriever. Arthur Lodge representatives were on hand to answer questions and offer advice on the correct way to care for animals. Julian Peters, owner of Arthur Lodge, said: “It was a delight to see so many children, and adults, wanting to learn about the animals and how to care for them. “Visitors were able to get up close to the animals and stroke them. Not only is this a great technique to introduce animals to young children, it is also a fantastic way to make learning about the animals fun. “I hope the farm attracted more visitors to the market, raising even more money for all the charities involved.”

Billingshurst Scouts and Guides raised almost £700 for their Save Our Hut campaign by washing cars at Jubilee Fields, Billingshurst. Fundraising officer Glyn Pullen said: “Following on from our recent show of strength in Billingshurst, where we publicised the problems we had with asbestos in the ceiling of our Scout hut, this car wash was the first of many fundraising events. “It was great to see so many children and adults working together and having fun. We have been very heartened by the response from the local community to our appeal. “We are also delighted to have been awarded a grant by Horsham District Council which will allow us to proceed with the refurbishment of the toilets in the Scout Hut. “Asbestos removal will start straight after Easter. While we still have a huge amount of fundraising to do, we have overcome some major hurdles and are very optimistic.” Anyone able to help in any way can contact Paul Starkey on 01403 786350 or paul.g.starkey@btinternet.com

Following Butch Horsham author Simon Casson will sign copies of his book at Waterstones, Horsham, from 10.30am tomorrow (Saturday). Co-written by Richard Adamson, Riding The Outlaw Trail in the Footsteps of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid is a true account of their 2,036-mile trek by horse from Mexico to Canada. Mr Casson, who lives off Brighton Road, moved from the town in 1986 and returned in 2003.

How you made a big Di-fference Readers of The Resident have made a real difference to the life of Diane Reynolds. Miss Reynolds, who has the nerve disease Friedreich’s ataxia, has received a new wheelchair as one of the first beneficiaries of Making a Difference, the Rotary Club of Horsham’s fundraising appeal. The 37-year-old, of Meadow Farm Lane, Horsham, told The Resident: “It will make a lot of difference. “I will be able to get out and do what I want to do, like going down to Brighton Pier or taking my two dogs out without my wheelchair cutting out.

“I’m very pleased because the wheelchair I’ve been in is very old, worn out and has been really uncomfortable. The new one has dual controls and I’m very pleased. I couldn’t be happier. “My carer Sarah put my name forward to see if the Rotary Club could help, but I thought the answer would be no because I didn’t think I was disabled enough to get it. It was a great surprise because the Rotary Club didn’t even know me. “I would like to say a very big thank you to all the people who’ve donated this money. If it wasn’t for them it wouldn’t be possible.”

Liberal Democrat MEP Sharon Bowles, who represents Horsham district in the European Parliament, has urged manufacturers to reduce the amount of packaging used to wrap Easter eggs. Despite government rules which require manufacturers to reduce packaging to a bare minimum, many Easter eggs still come wrapped in foil, plastic and cardboard. According to a UK parliamentary report, Mars and Cadbury have reduced the size and weight of their packaging, Guylian have produced the most excessively packaged Easter egg and Nestle is still the only company whose Easter egg packaging is 100 per cent recyclable.

Test it Tuesday West Sussex Fire and Rescue has launched a campaign to encourage people to test their smoke alarms each week. Test it Tuesday aims to get everyone in West Sussex testing their smoke alarms on a Tuesday as part of their normal weekly routine. Jackie Boyle, community fire safety officer, said: “You are more than twice as likely to die in a house fire if you don’t have a working smoke alarm. “Simply owning a smoke alarm and hoping that it works is not enough. Nine out of 10 households now have a smoke alarm, but seven of those do not test them weekly. “We all lead increasingly busy lives and testing smoke alarms can be something that easily slips people’s minds so we are always trying to find new and memorable ways to remind everyone. “We hope that by encouraging people to test their smoke alarms on a set day each week it may help them get into a habit that could end up saving their lives. “The message from us is very simple – don’t test your luck, test your smoke alarm.”

News Thakeham homes plan is approved A major development in Thakeham has been approved by councillors, subject to council officers helping to finalise the details. Horsham district councillors backed plans for 146 homes, plus a village hall including shop and doctor’s surgery, a  pre-school facility, community workshops/studio, sports pitches and changing rooms, a cricket pitch and pavilion, a children’s play area, open space and landscaped area and allotments. The development involves the modernisation of the Chesswood mushrooms site, including the construction of growing rooms, a pasteurising plant and aerated bunkers. Mark Keenan, of Thakeham Village Action, said before the meeting: “Why 150 houses are being considered and recommended by the officers is beyond us. “There’s a massive demand for housing, but the five-year development plan for Horsham did not include this as an area for development.” Herbie Sullivan, of Sussex Mushrooms, told BBC Sussex: ““It’s crucial for the future of 480 jobs that this development is approved. “We have to improve our facility so that we eliminate the odours. Thakeham is known as The Village With a Pong and we have to remove that title. “The development has been thought through in a very sensitive way by the architect and the planners. We have been very sensitive to the need to keep the rural scenery and to develop that whole rural ethos.”

Keep Southwater Green buoyed by new figures Matthew James News Editor

matthew@the-resident.co.uk

Initial results of a public consultation on housing in Southwater have been released to The Resident. Keep Southwater Green said Horsham District Council had received only 105 “votes” in favour of 250 or 500 new houses, while 1,530 people had “voted” against all planned development. But a council spokesman said responses were still being counted, they were not votes and the questionnaire was only one method being used to assess the issue. Ian Thwaites, of Keep Southwater Green, said: “The major concerns were the loss of countryside, the inevitable traffic congestion and the general impact on settlement character. “In 2009, when the current proposals for large development in the village were first made public, there were two attempts to assess the opinion of the community. “The Southwater Community Action Plan showed 75 per cent of respondents to be opposed to further large development. “A little later in the year, 64 per cent of respondents to a poll by the parish council said they wanted no

further development and were prepared to contribute financially so that the council might fight the proposals. “For reasons that have never been clear, neither of these were considered at district or parish level to be representative of public opinion. Possibly they simply did not provide the answer these bodies wanted. “In March 2010, Keep Southwater Green produced more than 4,000 signatories to a public petition saying they were ‘opposed, under all circumstances, to further large-scale development in Southwater’. This too did not satisfy them.

We trust that our ‘representatives will

acknowledge that the people have spoken

“Now their own consultation process, which Cllr Robert Nye has publicly declared he will honour, has declared an overwhelming endorsement of the fact that the population of Southwater are opposed to further large-scale planned development. “We trust now that our representatives, at all levels, will  acknowledge that the people have spoken and act accordingly.”

A spokesman for Horsham District Council said: “An email was sent from the council to the two reference groups for Billingshurst and Southwater, regarding the results so far from the leaflet distributed to residents. “We received requests from members of the reference group to have early sight of the questionnaire responses. Councillors David Jenkins and Robert Nye agreed this information should be shared with representatives on those groups. As a result, the questionnaire response data was sent in its ‘raw’ form – just totals of answers for each question. No analysis has yet been undertaken. “Many letters still need to be inputted and we anticipate this will be complete by early to mid May. From scanning these letters, it appears many are standard in nature so include issues already raised. “The purpose of the questionnaire, which was attached to the summary leaflets,  was to understand people’s views. It does not constitute a voting system. “The views expressed in the questionnaire responses will inform council members in their deliberations on any changes to the interim statement. “An analysis of all the comments received will be reported to the strategic planning advisory group on June 14.”

News in Brief Happy birthday Sir Peter Hordern joined staff and residents at Saxon Weald’s retirement scheme, Hordern House, to celebrate its anniversary – 20 years after he officially opened the building. The former Horsham MP and his wife talked with the residents, including Harry Matsell who moved into Hordern House a month before the official opening. Mr Matsell said: “It has been a very interesting and happy experience living here over the years. Everyone gets on well with each other and I enjoy it very much.” Lady Hordern credited scheme manager Lois Diplock and her colleagues for their hard work in making the scheme such a happy place for its residents. Guests enjoyed a buffet lunch while listening to Ratpack classics and reminiscing over photos from years gone by. Hordern House consists of 32 onebedroom self-contained apartments for the over-60s. The scheme holds the Crossroads day centre every Wednesday, providing respite for carers of those with dementia.

£100k road scheme A section of the A24 between Washington and Buck Barn will be improved from Tuesday, May 3. The essential road safety and improvement work will involve nighttime closures of the road between its junctions with the A272 at the Buck Barn crossroads and the A283 Washington roundabout. The £100,000 county council scheme involves the replacement of all road markings and cat’s eyes as well as some resurfacing. Any damaged or missing signs will also be repaired or replaced. The work, which will be carried out from 8pm to 5am, is scheduled to finish on Monday, May 9, weather permitting. A signed diversion route will operate via the A283, A2037, A281 and A272. Notices will be put on surrounding roads to warn motorists a week before the roadworks start.

Better broadband is MP’s aim MP Nick Herbert is convening a summit on broadband provision in West Sussex. The MP for Arundel and South Downs has joined forces with West Sussex County Council to promote the need for better broadband access across the county. The summit – West Sussex: Better Connected – will be held at County Hall, Chichester, on Friday, May 20 (11am). The keynote address will be delivered by the Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, who has responsibility for broadband policy. Other speakers will include John Peel, head of the new Coast to Capital LEP; Bill Murphy, managing director of BT Next Generation Access; and local community representatives. Broadband coverage in West Sussex is poorest in the rural heart of the county. Many areas have slow speeds and some communities have no broadband access at all. The summit aims to find new ways

to close the gap. The Government, which says Britain should have the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015, has given £530 million to Broadband Delivery UK to subsidise the laying of cables in more isolated areas. West Sussex will be bidding for a share of this money and will hear the results at the end of May. Mr Herbert said: “We are less than 50 miles from London, yet parts of rural West Sussex have no broadband coverage at all, while many areas have slow speeds. “Poor broadband holds back local enterprise and disadvantages rural communities. We need to get West Sussex better connected – first ensuring everyone has access to broadband, then bringing superfast speeds to as many people as possible. “I hope this summit will provide an opportunity for interested parties to help find a solution for the county.” Cllr Louise Goldsmith, leader of West Sussex County Council, said:

“The county council has been lobbying internet service providers over the past year to help improve and get good broadband coverage across West Sussex. “The summit is an opportunity to bring businesses and organisations together to see how we can take this work forward. “Fast, reliable broadband is essential for the social and economic wellbeing of our residents and for our businesses.” Members of the public can register for the summit by emailing their name, address and telephone number to nick@nickherbert.com

The Little House to go under hammer The Little House will go under the hammer at Summers Place Auctions, Billingshurst, next month. Made by Peter Hill Jones, who owns an architectural and scrapyard in Yapton, it is a clapboard miniature house with clay hung tiles and fitted interior, together with a privy and garden, raised stone beds, shrubs, box hedging and wrought iron railings. The Little House is the original building that was replicated as The

Little Ranelagh House exhibited at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2009. Built on a scale of 7:1 it carries an estimate of £10,000-£15,000. More than 500 lots will go on sale during the auction from May 24 to May 27, with viewing on May 20. James Rylands, one of the experts in charge of the auction, said: “This sale includes pieces with estimates ranging from £100 up to £150,000, so there really is something for everyone.”

News Vote on the voting system On May 5, voters will decide whether to ditch the first-pastthe-post voting system for parliamentary elections, in favour of the alternative vote (AV). Under first-past-the-post, the candidate with most votes in each constituency is elected. Under the alternative vote, electors number candidates in order of preference – 1 for their first choice and so on, as far as they want to go. If any candidate gets more than half of the first preference votes, he or she is elected. If not, the candidate with fewest votes is eliminated and their next preference votes added to the totals. This continues until one candidate has more than half of the votes. Last week, an opponent of the alternative vote explained why voters should reject a change. Here, a supporter of AV puts a contrary view.

We must change the way we elect our MPs Cllr Morwen Millson (Lib Dem) West Sussex county councillor

usual – expenses scandal and all. Trust in our politicians was never high in this country, but all the talk of duck islands and trouser presses saw it plummet to new depths. Politicians have changed some of their own rules since then, but it’s frankly not enough. We all know Britain’s democracy is sick. Part of the sickness is our voting system – and in May we have a chance to change it. If you’re glazing over with all this talk of systems, please stick with me. The voting system is fundamental. It decides how parties campaign and whose votes matter, and it determines just how much your MP needs you. The first-past-the-post (FPTP) system is broken. It has meant that most elections are fought and won a in handful of marginal seats, that our governments are decided by a few hundred thousand people. And it’s meant that most MPs are set for life in safe seats. It’s no wonder politicians seem so remote and unresponsive. The system’s biggest strength – the link between individual MPs and their constituents – isn’t working, and it’s that connection that once helped ground politicians in reality. FPTP was designed for a two-horse race that no longer exists. But as we’ve embraced a wider range of parties it’s possible for them to be elected with fewer than half the votes. Two out three of MPs were elected by a minority of their voters. Just think about it. Most of us are now represented by MPs that most of us didn’t vote for. If that vital ‘link’ still exists it’s now serving them, not us. I can’t claim that adopting the alternative vote (AV) will cure all the ills in our political system – it clearly won’t. Indeed it is a very gradual, very British change. But it retains what works with our current system – single members representing individual communities – and improves on it. AV gives an increasingly sophisticated electorate the chance to express their choices in greater detail. It means candidates will have to work harder to appeal beyond their core votes and aim to get the support of at least 50 per cent of their voters. No more getting in with the votes of three in 10. People will be able to express their first choices more freely, but also still have a say in who becomes their MP even if their first choice doesn’t win. It is a system which is widely used across civil society. Every major party uses a version of AV to elect their leaders and it is frequently used in Parliament. If it is good enough for our MPs, it is good enough for us to

use to elect our MPs. AV is a small change which will make a big difference. It is a vital step on the road to refreshing our democracy and restoring faith in politics. MPs surely have nothing to fear by being asked to try to get the support of a majority of the people they are seeking to represent. There have been a lot of myths already put about by those who want to retain the status quo but don’t seem able to come up with any arguments to defend it. So let’s be clear. If AV helps extremists why is Nick Griffin campaigning for a No vote? The reason might be that the BNP have racked up all their seats in our town halls with most people voting against them. It’s a trick they’d love to repeat at Westminster. With AV, extremists who refuse to reach out to the mainstream majority of voters have no future. And complacent MPs will have to do more, because doing just enough with a few key voters won’t be enough. AV isn’t an unusual system – it is used by millions of people in commercial, civic and political settings. And don’t let us bend to an argument which says we can’t have a more democratic system because it is a bit more expensive or might take longer to count. If we had accepted that argument in the past, we would never have had the secret ballot, votes for women or the abolition of rotten boroughs. Short on arguments, the No campaigners are happier pulling bogus figures out of the air. But their sums, like their arguments, simply don’t add up. As any Australian will tell you, all you need to vote with AV is a pencil and an opinion. And let’s not be conned into seeing this choice only through the prism of the Westminster village. This isn’t a referendum on Nick Clegg, the Lib Dems or the coalition. If we stay with the current rotten system it won’t be enough for people to say they voted against greater democracy because they didn’t like Clegg. This is a far bigger choice than his career. The Yes campaign is a broad coalition of people, including faith groups, green groups, people of all parties and none. We are saying ‘yes to AV’  because we recognise it as a change for the better. The way we, the people, choose to vote has changed over the last half century but we still have a 19th-century voting system. It is time that system got an overhaul. It is time for it to have an upgrade. That’s why I will be voting Yes on May 5 and I urge you to do the same.

Send your views to News Editor Matthew James at matthew@the-resident.co.uk or via our website, www.the-resident.co.uk We will not publish house numbers, but please include your full name and address Develop brownfield sites not our green spaces With the county council’s outline planning application for Muggeridge Field, we see  yet another, relatively large greenfield site put forward for development on the basis that the proposal is “inevitable to meet housing requirements”. In the course of Horsham Labour Party’s affordable housing campaign, and in reports covering proposed large-scale developments across the district, it is clear that residents believe the most pressing housing requirement is for affordable housing for local people. The only acceptable reason for additional development is to provide these homes. This is a requirement that the council has consistently failed to address, despite identifying that need in its own core strategy. Recently, when dealing with local families in priority housing need, the council has not been able to offer anything in the borough and has instead suggested temporary accommodation in Surrey. Our district does not need yet another exclusive development of luxury homes, which will be the inevitable outcome of any developer getting their hands on this site. If the council is incapable of ensuring developers contribute 40 per cent affordable homes on these sites, then the Labour Party believes they should not be approved. Neither do we believe there is a pressing need to develop on greenfield sites. Across Horsham there are a number of derelict brownfield sites. Some, such as the  Resource Centre on Brighton Road, are left to stand derelict – presumably waiting for the right moment for a property speculator to make an offer. The council should take action to ensure these sites are made use of to provide the much-needed homes for local people, without incursion onto our much-loved and needed green space.

Pass the parcel on buses On April 1 the times of the concessionary bus travel changed from 9am to 9.30am, ending at 11pm. The half-hour change in the morning can be understood, due to the morning rush hour and the general cuts to services. However, the ending of the concessionary travel at 11pm defies reason. For example, it is permissible to board the number 98 bus at Horsham railway station at 10.57pm and travel free to Southwater, but by boarding the bus at Horsham bus station at 11.01pm the fare is £1.70. As this route ends its evening journey at Manor Fields at 11.52pm perhaps it was intended that the concessionary travel should end at midnight. Mystified by this apparently senseless restriction, I called Horsham District Council to find out who was responsible. The district council denied all responsibility and suggested talking to Metro Buses. Their reply was to suggest West Sussex County Council, who in turned referred me back to Horsham District Council. Someone, somewhere, made this decision and I would like them to justify their reasoning for the change of times, especially those of the late-evening buses. Diana Deans Cedar Drive, Southwater

Reject voting reform The article by Cllr Maria Caulfield (Con) as a co-ordinator for the No2AV campaign was very insightful and well-reasoned (The Resident, April 15). I personally endorse her view. As I am chairman of the UKIP Horsham branch, she and others may assume otherwise. It is the effect this change to our voting system would have in the future that worries me, not the perceived short-term gain.

Council’s mileage expenses

Labour not socialist

With regard to ‘Council’s expenses criticised’ (The Resident, April 15). The council pays 65p per mile to councillors and staff who provide their own car for council business and where the car engine size is over 1200cc. The rates are set nationally and will not increase this year. The Inland Revenue allowance has just been increased to 45p per mile, with effect from April 6. Any allowance paid above this is subject to tax and national insurance.

Jay Harris seems to have confused the Socialist Party with the Labour Party (Your Shout, April 15). Labour has not been socialist since the less-than-halcyon days of Michael Foot and the longest suicide note in history, the party’s 1983 general election manifesto. But Mr Harris is correct that even ‘New’ Labour ended up running out of money. How much worse could it have been under true socialists?

Saddle Sore Sisters in trip of a lifetime Two rookie horsewomen rode across Jordan in a “life-changing experience”.

They were part of a group of 20 people who have so far raised £53,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. Housewife Mrs Ingham, 46, and Mrs Braddock, 47, who runs a small soft furnishing business, have raised more than £14,000, all of which will go to the charity in West Sussex. Mrs Ingham, of St George’s Gardens, told The Resident: “The weather was very varied. We didn’t have a thermometer, but I think we hit more than 40°C at times and one night was definitely below freezing. “On our second day we rode through a sandstorm. At times the storm was so bad that we had to turn the horses around with their backs to the wind and wait for it to settle down before we could proceed. “The main physical challenge was combating heat exhaustion and dehydration. It was recommended by the doctor who accompanied us that we alternate between drinking water and rehydrating salts. “We were aware of the fact that the horses would be speedy and spirited, but we had not appreciated to what extent. My horse bolted with another novice rider on the evening before we set out on our trek, while we were familiarising ourselves with them. “Fortunately neither of us panicked, even though it seemed they would never slow down, and we were able to regain control and bring them back to the group. “They were very different to the horses we are familiar with at home. Care had to be exercised when tacking up as the horses were prone to biting and kicking and a vague distraction while doing so could easily have led to injury. “We also had to pay special attention to keeping our distance as the horses had been brought in from Petra and were not all familiar with each other, so they would routinely kick the other horses when there was an opportunity. “Another horse kicked mine three times while we were riding along a mountain ledge. Even though the drop wasn’t very steep, there was still

the possibility that if the horse fell off it, in falling, it would land on me. “We all had to cross a major highway while leading our horses and we found the traffic still hurtling towards us. “We did not until this point realise either that horses love to roll in the sand. They would attempt to do this even when tacked up with a rider on their back, which meant that we had to constantly keep them moving to prevent them from doing so. “On the occasions when they did do this, the rider had to jump off as quickly as possible to prevent them being crushed. Mary proved how quick her reactions were when she found herself in this position. “One evening one of the horses broke free, but we were fortunate that the horse returned to camp of his own volition. “The food provided by the Bedouins was delicious. It was prepared freshly every day and cooked on a campfire. This not only included our evening meal, but also lunch. “The ambience in the camp was wonderful from start to finish. The whole group created a very strong bond and were very supportive of each other throughout. “Evenings were spent around the campfire, with singing and dancing by both the Bedouins and the challenge group. “This life-changing experience has been both exhilarating and humbling, from the fundraising to the trek itself. We feel very privileged.” The Saddle Sore Sisters, who prepared on the South Downs and local bridleways, raised £4,400 on one night through an auction at the Holbrook Club in February. Other donations have come from individuals and companies including Spofforths, Paragon Software Systems and Gatwick Airport. You can still donate at www.justgiving.com/SaddlesoresistersAKAMaryBraddockandCarolineIngha Mrs Ingham is hoping to make a similar trek in Outer Mongolia in two years.

Piazza Italia 2011

The best guide to Horsham’s No.1 festival Get a Piazza the action this weekend This Easter sees the fifth Piazza Italia festival – and it promises to be the best yet. With temperatures set to rise into the 20s on Friday, Saturday and Monday, festival organisers are confident they have more than enough attractions to persuade people not to visit the beach instead. Rain affected the event last year, but town centre manager Garry Mortimer-Cook told The Resident yesterday (Thursday): “Swan Walk recorded 100,000 footfall movements

across the three days in 2010 and the event probably brought in about 15,000 extra people across the weekend. “The incredible weather being forecast for this year’s event is a new feature! We hope that people who may have been put off by the weather in the past will join us this time. “We know people are drawn to Piazza Italia from right across the South East and potentially from all over the country. We hope they will visit the town and come back.

“Each year, Piazza Italia builds on the success it’s had the year before. More than 80 businesses and organisations are involved in helping make Piazza Italia this Easter’s most successful free public event in the South East. “Each day will bring excitement and entertainment for all the family, thanks to the many partners who are making the event possible. “The highlight this year is bound to be an even bigger number of Ferraris and Italian bikes, with 93 Ferraris

The incredible weather being forecast for this year’s event is a new feature!

booked, including an Enzo and five of the new 458 models.” Piazza Italia is organised by Horsham District Council on behalf of local businesses and the community.

Key sponsors include Ringway, Southern Water, South Lodge Hotel, Pizza Express, Vines BMW Mini of Gatwick, Prezzo, La Source, Carmela, Marks and Spencer, Waitrose, Brewers, Steamer Trading and Meridien Modena. The event will raise money for the Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice (Friday and Saturday) and the Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance (Monday). See www.piazza-italia.co.uk for more information.

Piazza Italia 2011

Venice comes to Horsham town centre The romance and glamour of Venice will come to the centre of Horsham as part of Piazza Italia. The Carnevale di Venezia, which is being supported by Southern Water, will include a twist on the Venetian gondola, an enactment of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a display of Italian super cars, Venetian-style masks and a wine-tasting tour of

local bars and pubs. A gondola will cruise around the town centre and the world’s best known love story, Romeo and Juliet, will be performed from a town centre balcony. Anyone who has made a Venetian mask will have a chance to win a prize for the best creation. Masks made and worn as part of

the celebrations can be handed in at Horsham Museum, Causeway, between 11am and 3.30pm on Monday. Darren Bentham, director of Southern Water’s metering programme, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Carnevale di Venezia. We are keen to support the communities where we are working to install new water meters.”

Success is sweet

the-resident.co.uk/business

A love of chocolate, hard work and vision have been the key ingredients for a local chocolate making business that is celebrating its sixth anniversary James Hood Business Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

A Horsham-based, chocolate making business that began in a family kitchen is celebrating its sixth anniversary this month. Cocoa Loco was established in 2005 when its founder, Sarah Payne who lives in Partridge Green, decided it was time to go back to work after her youngest child started school. “I made some brownies and sold them on Ebay. When that went well and I got really good feedback, I

realised there was a market for an online brownie and chocolate ordering service, and so Cocoa Loco was created” Sarah told The Resident. Initially, the business was run from Sarah’s kitchen at home where the mum of two baked everything in her Aga, for orders received via the company’s website. The business was one of the first in the region to offer the service online. Sarah said: “My oven would lose heat by the end of the day, sometimes taking up to 45 minutes to bake a batch. So it took forever. Then I would package them up myself and take a massive sack full of parcels to the

post office to send out. I wasn’t very popular there!” Eighteen months later, Cocoa Loco had expanded into chocolates and its headquarters moved from the kitchen to the garden, where Sarah and her husband built a specially made cabin to operate from. “It was ideal. I had two young children who would come straight out to the garden to see me when they came in from school. “It meant I got to build up my business and still be at home. I could go to the house for family time, to cook dinner, read the kids a bedtime story, then get straight back to work.” Sarah said. Today, Cocoa Loco operates from the company’s large factory and office at a converted barn in West Grinstead. There is a team of ten on the staff, including Sarah’s husband, Rory, who is now a co-director. Together, the team creates an impressive range of (mostly organic) chocolate-based products, in a variety of different flavours, styles and for any occasion. Their customers range from individuals using the website to large corporations. The business supplies chocolates for Jamie Oliver’s J Me brand and for Highgrove, which will soon see its products on shelves in Fortnum & Mason. So how did Sarah go from baking in

New owner for hair salon KG Haircare, in Billingshurst, has a new owner. The salon, which is on Jengers Mead, is an established business with many existing clients, and it is now in the capable hands of Kerry Bailey. Kerry is a qualified stylist who has worked previously in salons in Crawley, Horsham and Billingshurst. “I am excited to be involved with such a well-established and regarded business”, Kerry said. “My team and I intend to provide a cheerful, quality service that caters for all our clients’ needs. “I intend to build on the solid foundations laid by the previous owner and am looking at ways to increase the services we offer. We want to provide an enjoyable experience that makes our clients feel good about themselves.”

her home kitchen to making it in the world of confectionery? She credits much of her success to an effective partnership: “I think Rory and I really compliment each other. “I have a great vision for the company and a creative flair. And Rory is very practical, logical and businessminded. It works” Sarah commented. The chocolatier also believes it takes passion to grow a business like theirs. Sarah told The Resident: “I love every day. I live and breathe, and

eat chocolate. I also find myself looking for chocolates, flavours and ideas everywhere I go”. Six years since the business was started, the mix of hard work, vision and the flexibility needed to run a business as well as a family, has been a winning recipe for the business. And it helps that Cocoa Loco’s founder, and all its customers, are crazy about chocolate. For more information visit www. cocoaloco.co.uk

Floristry with feeling Two local women have opened a creative studio, which provides an innovative, personal and unique floristry service Two local women have opened a new florist at Brinsbury College, which will offer something different for customers. Alison Hoad and Jan Cook are both qualified in floristry, having studied at Chichester University, and wanted to create a personal and innovative environment in which the public could buy flowers. The entrepreneurs’ unique shop is called Blomst Flower Studio and is situated in the Lodge Cottage at the college, on the A29 between Billingshurst and Pulborough. The name is the Norwegian word for flower. Together, the pair creates made-toorder bouquets and arrangements as well as offering a range of cut flowers and gifts. Alison Hoad, from Blomst Flower Studio, said: “We offer an entirely different experience from a high street florist. We take care to capture the sentiment of each occasion through the natural beauty of flowers and

foliage.” “We have the space to sit down with clients in our wonderful cottage, and make the time to discuss with them exactly what it is they want to say, with flowers” Jan Cook added: “Flowers have the power to communicate. They always evoke an emotional response. This may be through a special gift, an arrangement for a dinner, a ‘thank you’, a tribute or contractual arrangement for an office or hotel and, of course, weddings. Our creative cottage is perfect for this.” The Lodge Cottage, which is on Stane Street, has four rooms with original fireplaces. The former bedrooms are used for client consultations and a gift shop. The living room is now a bright studio workshop. There is an office, and parking available. For more information visit www. blomstflowerstudio.co.uk or call 01798 874889.

Improved employment figures for Sussex

Sussex Enterprise reports ‘positive’ outlook for jobs in the area but expresses caution about complacency According to the latest figures from the Office of National Statistics, unemployment in Sussex remained steady in March. The organisation reported a fall of just 152 unemployment benefit claimants across the county. There are now 27,299 claimants in Sussex, compared with 27,451 in the previous month. Commenting on the figures, Mark Froud, Chief Executive of Sussex Enterprise, said: “Today’s figures are broadly positive, and partly reverse the disappointing numbers reported over the last few months. “Over the four months to February, unemployment rose in Sussex. The figures are welcome, but they should not lead to any complacency. The

government must create the right environment for the private sector to create jobs. “As the deficit-cutting programme starts to bite, public sector employment will decline further. “We are expecting UK unemployment to increase further over the next year, and to peak at around 2.65 million before starting to decline. “National figures show that growth in earnings has weakened, particularly in the private sector, and reinforces the case against an early increase in interest rates. “Since there is little risk of a wageprice spiral, the MPC should postpone interest rate increases until later in the year when the recovery is more secure.”

An exhibition stand created by Storm Creative Partnership has won first prize at the Chartered Institute of Housing Conference, which was held in Brighton recently. Storm Creative Partnership, an award winning design agency based in Handcross, designed the community-themed displays on behalf of Osborne, a family-owned building contractor. The concept behind the stand came from a project being run by Osborne and The Hyde Group to educate school children about

construction and regeneration. As part of the work with the school, the children produced essays and pictures on a ‘day in the life of’ an architect, a quantity surveyor, a housing manager or a building manager. Their work provided the basis for the exhibition display. Katy Stas, Communications Manager at Osborne, said: “The pupils’ essays and pictures were fantastic so we decided to use them as the inspiration for the design of the stand. Fifteen pupils achieved a certificate for their work, which was presented on the stand as part of their

day out to Brighton – a reward for their efforts and for many, the first time they had been to the seaside.” Claire Walker, Senior Account Manager at Storm, said: “The theme was about working with communities from the start of a build through to an ongoing partnership and legacy in the future. Osborne felt that while its contracting work and commitment to green issues and sustainability were important, its work was ultimately about creating partnerships to build lasting, lifelong communities and wanted this to be the focus of their stand.”

One of the many benefits of securing positive PR coverage of your business in the local media is that ‘Joe Public’, which I would imagine embraces many of your customers and prospects, becomes very aware of you and, most importantly your business offering. “Gosh you’re doing well... I keep reading about you everywhere,” is the comment that will greet you on many occasions, not least when you’re business networking. This perception of success has a beneficial impact on your business. It takes less time to close a sale because people trust you, having read about you. It becomes easier to open the door to a sale because you are a familiar face. So don’t dismiss the compelling power of PR in growing your business. However, warming to the theme of last month’s column, I do know how challenging it is for you to get media coverage but also how frustrating it is for a journalist - often on the receiving end of pitches from business people, so keen to get their name in print that they overlook the fact that news is required, not advertising spin. If you’re intent on approaching journalists and editors, don’t sabotage your chances of success with a clumsy and unprofessional approach. A journalist is looking for relevance - something you can bring to the feature that is timely and concise, that will inspire, inform and enthuse readers. So when a journalist asks you to contribute an article or feature or to give a precious nugget of your wisdom, you must clarify your understanding of what they are looking for before putting pen to paper. Then, brief understood, it’s time

for you to deliver in spades. Don’t haggle on the copy deadline even if you’re going to have to burn the midnight oil or cancel your night out because the deadline is the next day or even within a few hours. Always submit the exact word count but only after you’ve checked and re-checked your piece to ensure it’s free of spelling mistakes and clumsy grammar. Not your strong point? Hand it to a wordsmith. There’s more chance of your contribution making it into the publication unchanged if you follow this etiquette to the letter. Finally, don’t overlook the importance of charm. Journalists do appreciate it when you say thank you and you mean it. You would be surprised at the abrupt emails I receive from people keen to feature in an article or blog that I am writing. Journalists usually have many businesses clamouring for their story to be featured. Stand apart from the mediocre pack with your charming and businesslike approach. Always aim to build genuine business rapport with your friends in the media. I speak from experience because in the last 26 years I’ve managed to secure countless full-page articles, special features and columns initially by building a relationship with the commissioning editor or journalist, often when the odds were stacked against me. Don’t skimp on this.

It’s been over a year now since I last witnessed the ‘70s travelling time machine’ that is The Jackie Generation. A six-piece, live band whose aim is to take people back in time to the glory days of 70’s pop; Scooby Doo, Pufnstuf, Raleigh Choppers (remember them?) and Platforms and Flares.

the Pops’ theme, setting up the next two hours of precision pop slickness of classic 70’s hits. Decked out in ‘sexy denim’, lead singers Janey Bombshell and Karlos Vox delivered some truly dazzling vocal performances backed by this ultra tight band of amazing musicians. Picking the biggest hits from this golden era, the Jackie Generation were clearly out to have a ball, and their infectious stage antics quickly filtered to the audience of folk who clearly remembered the glory days of 70s Glam, Pop and Disco with such affection. A whizz bang opening salvo of ‘Waterloo’, ‘Sky high’ and Clouts’ ‘Substitute’, followed by ‘Gonna make you a star’, which led us to a beautiful arrangement of Olivia Newton John’s ‘Hopelessly devoted to you’. It was a spine-tingling highlight, and it showed just why Janey, has been described as ‘West End’ quality. She had the audience in the palm of her hand, and it was a delight to watch. Had this actually been the 70s, I have no doubt she would be the pinup on every teenagers wall! But to be honest, highlights were everywhere. As the band launched into ‘The Carpenters’ classic ‘Goodbye to love’, with a simply astonishing guitar solo at the end by Greg Hart, it showed why the band is so much more than just a party band Again, ending the first set with the magical ‘Music’ by John Miles, Karlos Vox gave a vocal performance like his life depended on it, with Andy Stewart seemingly playing an entire

‘orchestra’ on the keyboards. The climax to the song was topped by some staggering vocals that brought the house down. Class. Returning for the second half, Janey now in a very fetching cat suit, (which brought the Dads down to the front) led the band through a show stopping hour of classic party tunes. From hitting those high notes in ‘Xanadu’, to a thunderous version of ‘Daddy cool’ with the wonderful (ultra cool) Gary Williams on bass, everything was ultra groovy! ‘I got the music in me’ rocked, ‘Love is in the air’ popped, and the amazing ‘Mr blue sky’, really socked! By the end, everyone in the Holbrook Club was back in the 70s zone, having danced their popsocks off, and the band left to a thunderous roar. Returning for a well deserved encore, the ‘show within a show’ that is drummer Stevie Weaver, started up his powerhouse drumming for one of the all time ‘Glam’ anthems that is ‘Crazy horses’. With Karlos and Greg’s singing style so close to the Osmonds, it was all so poptastically brilliant. Ever heard 250 people doing that ‘horse impression’ on the chorus? Make sure you’re there next time! After Janey invited everyone to ‘Devil gate drive’ for a rousing finale, the band left the stage leaving us all in no uncertain terms, they are simply the hottest ticket in town. With a Halloween special planned later in the year being their only other Horsham date, get yourselves a ticket at any cost. ‘Poptastik’? FUNTASTIK!

Star of the stage defies the doctors A young performer with a disability has surprised her parents and doctors by following her own yellow brick road to stardom James Hood Entertainment Editor

james@the-resident.co.uk

An 11-year old girl has defied doctors, who told her parents she may never be able to walk, by becoming a talented young star of the stage. Lauren Gander has Spina Bifida, a birth defect that prevents the spine and nervous system from developing properly. When Lauren was born, her parents were unsure of the effects it

Lauren meets Dani Harmer, the star of Tracey Beaker

would have on their daughter. But 11 years on, she is living her life to the full and pursuing her dream. This month, Lauren is performing in The Wizard of Oz at The Capitol in Horsham, playing a number of different roles including a munchkin, a jitterbug and a poppy. Lauren’s success in performing arts is something her mum, Linda, thought might never be possible. Linda told The Resident: “We were told about Lauren’s condition when she was about eight months old, and it was devastating. “We spent the next couple of years just wondering whether Lauren would be able to lead a normal life. But she has amazed us all.” Linda made an effort early on in Lauren’s life to treat her like any other child, and it has paid off: “Obviously we made sure she was cared for and attended treatment at Great Ormond Street Hospital regularly. But we also had to make a conscious decision to not feel sorry for ourselves and get on with life.” Linda said. As a result, Lauren is able to do what she enjoys most in life, which is singing, dancing and performing on stage. Her mum said: “Never in my

wildest dreams did I think she would be doing something so active that made her so happy. She’s a star.” Lauren started dance classes at the age of four. She has since starred in The West End production of The

I don’t let my health ‘problems stop me doing anything ’

Wizard of Oz, as well as productions of Bugsy Malone and Oliver, in which she played the role of Nancy. As well as her budding stage career, Lauren has been busy raising more than £75,000 for charity and she has also received a rare gold Blue Peter badge, which are only given to people for outstanding achievements. She recently became a ‘Young Ambassador’ for the Tree of Hope Children’s Charity. It has not been an easy journey for Lauren to get to where she is today. But despite any hardships, her outlook on life is an inspirational one: “I think I’m lucky. I can walk and dance, and most days I feel ok. I get up, make

Lauren meets the Countess of Wessex

some toast and get on with my life. I don’t let my health problems stop me doing anything.” Lauren said. Despite her success on stage, the child star has plans to do even more. In the future, she would like to be a physiotherapist, but not before being an extra on TV show, Glee. Oh, and of

course, “meeting the Queen”, Lauren told The Resident. Visit The Capitol’s website for more information on The Wizard of Oz at www.thecapitolhorsham.com For more information on the Tree of Hope charity visit www.treeofhope.org.uk

Sarah Jane Honeywell

The classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is announced as this year’s winter pantomime at The Capitol. ‘Oh yes it is…!’ CBeebies presenter Sarah Jane Honeywell makes a welcome return to The Capitol this Christmas following her appearance as ‘Peter Pan’ at the theatre three years ago. This time, the Children’s TV star will play Fairy Twinkle in this year’s ‘GIANT’ pantomime. Sarah Jane is the star of CBeebies’ TikkaBilla, Higgledy House and the current sports and activity programme Mighty Mites. Sarah Jane said: “I can’t wait to return, I love the theatre and really enjoyed my time here, and now for something different as the Fairy... with a few surprises!”  Starring alongside Sarah Jane will be another children’s television favourite, Connor Byrne, who is best known for his ongoing role as Mike the caretaker in the BAFTA winning CBBC series, Tracy Beaker. As always the pantomime will be packed full of fun, music and comedy and should not be missed. So get your tickets booked early and join us on an adventure up the beanstalk this Christmas. It’s a GIANT pantomime and a

classic story with a fresh production. It is sure to raise the roof of The Capitol, with bucket loads of laughter and fun for the whole family! Jack and The Beanstalk runs for 43 performances from Thursday,

Frank Wedekind’s original and controversial tragedy, Spring Awakening, was banned when it was first written in 1891. The play tackles the sexually repressive culture of Germany in the 1800s and is a direct portrayal of the journey from adolescence to adulthood. The musical version achieved cult status with young audiences globally, with its overbearing, strict generation trying to suppress the rise of teenage desire. This new musical tells the timeless tale of youth and has been dubbed a historic version of the channel 4 series, Skins. With an alternative rock soundtrack by Duncan Sheik, the musical picked up eight Tony awards while on Broadway and, after the Lyric Hammersmith took the risk to transfer it in 2009, its run in the West End won

four Oliver Awards. West Sussex County Youth Theatre, one of the last remaining county council-funded youth theatres has worked with the award-winning OnO Theatre on this version of the play, which can be seen at The Capitol from May 11 to May 13 at 7.30pm. Together, the two theatre companies have formed an outstanding team to make the musical relevant to young people growing up in the South East today. Performed by Sussex-based, young actors aged between 16 and 25, the company are led by a team of creative professionals at the top of their game. The skilled and acclaimed production team includes Robin Belfield as director, with Neil Irish designing and lighting designer Mark Dymock. Producer, Anne Fenton, said: “With lots of changes that affect young people in society today, it seems timely to

Showing on the big screen Arthur

Winnie the Pooh

Submarine

Russell Brand plays the lead role in this remake of the 80s classic, which starred Dudley Moore. Arthur falls in love with a woman that his high-society family disapprove of, meaning he is cut off from the family fortune. Will he follow his heart or can money buy him true happiness?

It’s an ordinary day in Hundred Acre Wood, as Winnie the Pooh tries to find some honey. But his adventures begin when he misinterprets a note from Christopher Robin, who they think has been kidnapped. Together with trusty Eyore and Piglet, Pooh must find their friend in another heartwarming tale from Walt Disney.

Craig Roberts stars in this comedy about a boy with two missions: Lose his virginity before his next birthday and discourage his mother from entering into a long-term relationship with an ex-partner.

Fit for a Princess Julia Martin Health & Lifestyle

julia.martin@the-resident.co.uk

As Catherine Middleton prepares for her wedding, she must be overawed to have the pick of the top designers to create not one, but three dresses, so that she can ensure total secrecy. The concept is a good one but as she is losing weight due to prewedding nerves (and who can blame her when the eyes of the world will be assessing every last inch of her tall persona?) The seamstresses must be kept busy altering all those dresses. Every woman wants to look perfect on her special day but the pressure must be immense and never has a young woman been catapulted into the limelight so quickly. Hamleys are selling Catherine dolls and everywhere her face shines back from mugs to plates. The nation has adopted her as the glamour icon of the times and the spectre of her predecessor is also everywhere, acting as a warning to the pitfalls of her future life as a Royal. We thank her for boosting the fashion industry and for loving her man so much that she is prepared, quite literally, to take on the world. The role of princess is every little girl’s dream yet it is probably one of the biggest life changes anyone could embark on. We can all relate to that, and in our worlds, we all know many women who have risen to enormous challenges spurred on by their love for their families and partners. I think we should all look to plan a celebration to echo the Royals and

The Royal Opera House. The cost is £36,000 for six people so... maybe not. However, a trip to the cinema in a Ford Focus, with a meal and wine could also give you a royal experience if it is with the people you care about. Enjoy!

Health & Lifestyle The Makeup Box’s Patsy talks about her latest transformation... Hi ladies (and hopefully a few gents out there too!) Well, my last instalment I was trying to get over the Make Up Box girls’ annihilation of my make up bag. Who would have thought that that much powder could build up in the bottom of such a small bag! So, now, with my new found make up products you would think that it would all up and up from hereon in… you would think… but let’s face it, this is Patsy we are talking about and nothing is ever straight forward in my world. So I arrive at a photo shoot with Paula, one of the Make Up Box’s founders, a former partner in crime from our Tanbridge days. (Now there are SO many more stories from that little chapter of our lives, but that’s for another day.) I have applied my make up as I have for years, you know, waterproof mascara put on with the end of a eyeshadow brush in a nice straight line under my eye (I am so clever, as it’s waterproof it doesn’t run – don’t you just love that?!) and my brand new blusher in a nice line on my cheekbones. Well I think they’re my cheekbones, it’s on my cheeks anyway. And

my ‘piece de resistance’, the nice pale ‘gob job’ that I have been wearing since I was 16, keeps me young you know. All was going swimmingly until the photographer said nice and loud to my beloved school friend, “your Mum’s looking good for her age…” It was a silence that I don’t think that poor man will ever forget. It was at this point that I knew just buying good make up products just wasn’t enough, I needed help putting them on! Paula got to work. Apparently I needed dragging into this century, ditch the thin, dry foundation that was doing me no favours (sitting in the ever increasing wrinkles on my skin was not a good look!) and swap to an incredibly light one that is so sheer yet gave the coverage I needed in my mid 40’s….. depressing heh! She binned my self-invented equipment and showed me the simple, yet very effective method of enhancing my eyes with a soft brown eyeliner and eyeshadow using an angled brush to bring out what she called “my stunning blue eyes” – if she thinks that’s going to get her off the hook for all the other insults… Anyway, apparently it’s all about

unwanted weight only to find it slowly starts to creep back on as we lapse back into old, destructive habits? Even when we know that being overweight increases our risks of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, depression and high blood pressure, it’s still so difficult to stay motivated for any length of time. Hypnotherapy can help by reprogramming your subconscious mind to exchange those unwanted habits and behaviours for new beneficial ones. By re-programming our subconscious we can change our attitudes and emotions around food for life, not just the time we are consciously focusing on our food intake.

Increasing the appeal of healthy foods, stopping when full and feeling satisfied by eating smaller portions are all easily achievable with the positive suggestions used in Hypnotherapy. Overeating is an ingrained habit, an unhealthy, repetitive behaviour controlled by our subconscious mind. In hypnotherapy we can motivate the subconscious mind to permanently exchange these unwanted behaviours for beneficial behaviours without the interruption of the conscious mind. The subconscious acts on these suggestions as it is only concerned with what is best for our survival. As the subconscious mind is stronger than the conscious mind, it wins every time. We all know how much better we feel after losing excess weight, fitter emotionally and physically. Hypnosis can help you to achieve the results you want, whether used as a therapy on its own or alongside a weight loss and exercise programme to help you

Emma helps a reader with a dilemma each week.

Emma’s Dilemmas

The problem will be discussed with sensitivity and humour and will touch on areas we can all recognise. Email Emma - emma@the-resident.co.uk

Dear L I think you are probably far more normal than you think! A vast majority of women who have just had babies could think of NOTHING worse than getting “physical” with the man who put them in that position in the first place! One of the most common phrases shouted at husbands in delivery suites is “don’t you EVER come near me again!!!” Even though your baby is a year

Dear Emma, I have been married now for 4 years, we had a baby a year ago and in the main we are really happy. I love my husband very much but I just don’t find him sexually attractive anymore. I actually don’t feel like having sex with anyone anymore! It’s obviously driving him mad and it is really worrying me. Is this normal after such a short period of being married? L Smith

Memorabilia madness Amy Jones Health & Lifestyle

old, your body, mind and life have gone through the most radical change they will ever go through. It takes a long time to adjust to all this and the feeling of turmoil can have strange effects on us all. One of the most common is a complete drop in libido. I think the most positive thing you can do for the moment is to try and get yourself some “me time” (I know, it doesn’t exist with a small child) but try and find some time to take yourself away from your role, albeit briefly, as a mum. Get back to being “you”. Then try and put some time aside to spend with your other half, just the two of you. Sometimes simple things like this are all we need to jog our memories as to why we got together in the first place. The addition of a small baby into your life is enough to make you forget who you are. Don’t give up on your libido, it will return. Just don’t’ be too hard on yourself and take your time getting to know yourself and your marriage all over again. You may enjoy the journey! Emma

A right royal fitness offer!

With the Royal Wedding but a week away, the country seems to have gone memorabilia mad. The list of household items that one can buy with the Prince and his future bride’s smiling faces on is endless: tea towels, pens, mugs, t-shirts... but I never thought the madness would stretch as far as the beauty industry. I was very much mistaken. For work last week I was sent on a little trip to Westminster in order to track down a set of, wait for it, Will and Kate stick on nails. These nails are rather hideous in all honesty and I can’t imagine that there would be many people willing to wear them, but they are available to buy nevertheless and it was my job to purchase a pair. Rumour has it that they are only sold in Westminster souvenir shops, so armed with this helpful tip, and very little else, I set off. I must have visited at least twenty souvenir shops in the W1 area but, to my dismay, the nails were nowhere to be seen. It was a beautiful day in London and St James’ Park and the grounds of Buckingham Palace were heaving with tourists and lunching Londoners.

Discounted swim and fitness memberships

I have to admit to being a bit of a tourist myself as, before I left University, I could count on my hands the amount of times I had visited London. Foolishly though, on this very hot day in the capital, I was a tourist lacking one very vital tool: a map. So, not only did I get hot and bothered, I also got dreadfully lost. Two and a half (unsuccessful) hours later I returned to the office empty handed and slightly less in favour of the whole Royal occasion. I wasn’t alive when Charles married Diana, but I’m fairly sure people didn’t celebrate in the eighties by gluing the newlyweds’ smiling faces to their nails? Still, you certainly have to admire patriotism of this level. Personally, I just plan to show my support in the same way that I imagine the majority of the country does; by taking the day off and toasting the happy couple with a nice cold glass of Pimm’s.

Ross Attwood BA (hons) Partner Harper James

Simon Rollison Broker Consultant Mercier Allen

You are really opening a can of worms here as there is a perception that estate agents earn far too much, all drive the latest BMW’s and do little more than take a wonky photo of your home and plaster it all over the internet and then simply sit back and wait for the telephone to ring. The only reason the public hold this perception is that I have indeed come across estate agents who still do exactly that! However, there should be a lot more to it than that; whilst huge rises in the use of property websites has helped agents reach far more buyers, far more quickly, this is an additional overhead that has to be added to the vital traditional methods such as local newspaper and magazine advertising to ensure the best possible publicity for a client’s property. These overheads, coupled with the running costs of keeping offices open and staffed so that the public have somewhere they can visit to register their interest in either searching for a new home or to see how a particular agent will be able to help sell their own property, means that agents costs have actually risen now that the website costs have to be factored in as well. So in my opinion there is a balance between offering a competitive fee whilst also having the means to do all the ancillary promotion and advertising that will ensure more potential buyers from as wide an area of possible are made aware that the property is on the market. This will significantly increase the chances of securing the best possible price for the vendor. The more people that know you are selling; the far better chance there is of getting a higher price. A few hundred pounds extra on the fee enabling the agent to do far more marketing will undoubtedly result in a sale price of many more thousands! So beware the cheapest deal as there will undoubtedly be little substance in the way of promotion and marketing behind it and ensure you find a professional local estate agent who knows your target market and will be able to offer a fair fee that represents value for money whilst also being enough of an inducement to motivate them into wanting to work extremely hard in getting you the best price. If you are contemplating putting your house on the market this Spring or would like an answer to any property-related question, please call me on 01403 732727 or email rossattwood@harper-james.co.uk

With fuel prices on the increase, gas and electric bills going up and many retail products more expensive now than they were a year ago, people are feeling the purse strings being tightened. When you add in the fact that many people have seen little or no pay rises since 2007, many households are having to prioritise where they spend there money. It is worth spending the time, listing what are the essential bills and what is a luxury. How many people pay for the latest mobile phone, the full sky package and even insure their pets, before protecting their income! There are many ways that you can protect your income and make sure your loved ones are financially sound if your income was to cease. Death - In the event of your death, you can take out a life insurance policy to produce a lump sum of money, or derive an income for many years to come. Your family could use this to pay off a mortgage and have an extra amount to pay the household bills. Serious Illness - In the event of you being diagnosed with a critical illness, again you can take out a protection policy to produce a lump sum of money. You could use this to pay for the best medical care, clear your debts or pay off your mortgage. Either way, it would take off the pressure of having to return to work as soon as possible, increasing your recovery time. Redundancy - In these uncertain times, how many people can claim that their job is 100% safe? Should you be made redundant, how confident would you be to secure alternative work before your money rang out? Redundancy cover would give you a monthly income for a period of time, until you can find the right job for you. These are many other ways of making sure that your families lifestyles will not be affected should your income stop, whether that would be short term or forever. If you are more likely to insure your television, than your own life then please spend time focusing on what is really important! To find out more about this, please contact me on 01403 268562.

Q A

We have recently purchased a 16th Century timber frame Grade II Listed cottage have have plans to extend it. Do we just need normal planning permission?

Buying a Listed Building should not be taken lightly. A good friend of mine who owns a beautiful Listed house once said ‘we are custodians of this house and therefore have a duty to carefully maintain it until it is passed on’. Essentially, a Listed Building is a property of Historic or Architectual importance. This means that the style and substance give it exceptional character. But with this come responsibilities to maintain its integrity as a tangible legacy of the nation’s past. Therefore, any planned demolition, extension or alteration to Listed buildings must be undertaken with the blessing of the local authority conservation officer and Listed Building consent will normally be required. The conservation officer is a figure who will loom large in your life and the local authority has to consult English Heritage regarding such works. All works must be undertaken or supervised by those having appropriate knowledge and experience of working with historical buildings.

Alterations to a Listed building will be far more expensive than a normal building. The Conservation Officer will ensure that works are undertaken using identical/sympathetic materials, ie clay roof tiles, cast iron rainwater fittings, wooden window frames. On the up side, there may be no VAT on alterations or new work to listed buildings. It is therefore vitally important to get a thorough assessment of your home’s condition and the implications for your proposals from a surveyor with experience of historic buildings.

Please contact duncanjagger@harper-james.co.uk if you require further advice.

One of the best views in West Sussex? It is rare to come across a large family house that really does tick all the boxes, but in my opinion this is exactly what Timberdown does. This bespoke Scandia-Hus designed property was built by my clients in 2007 to a very high standard with high quality fixtures and fittings

throughout including extensive use of natural materials such as oak, marble, slate, quartz and granite creating a bright and practical home. Another benefit of the property is the versatile accommodation including an extremely useful annexe attached to the detached garage which could be utilised as either guest/

relative accommodation, an office suite or simply as additional play/ games room. However, an even more remarkable feature of this house is the stunning setting. Situated at the head of a small cul-de-sac in West Chiltington, the sweeping lawns covering approx. ½ acre merge into the most stunning views over open countrywide for as far as the eye can see. The design of the house maximises these vistas which can be enjoyed from not only the main rooms and terracing on the ground floor, but also the Master Bedroom’s private balcony, and even from the Master Suite’s private bathroom situated on the second floor and accessed via its’ own spiral staircase. Benefitting from the balance of the NHBC Warranty, this triple-glazed three storey house has been sympathetically designed to minimise its impact on the environment whilst also ensuring that whoever lives there will be able to enjoy that environment to the full. Timberdown is offered with a Guide Price of £890,000. For more details and a copy of the brochure please contact the agents, Harper James on 01403 732727.

Buoyant lettings market benefits landlords ‘The Lettings market is still buoyant, with most properties being let out within a few days from when they first go on the market’ said Elaine Gray of Munslow Bailey Gray. ‘We are experiencing exceptionally high demand for two and three bedroom houses, in particular.’ As a result of the strong rental market and the unusually high demand for rental properties consequently we are offering excellent deals to new landlords. We are currently offering very low rates and for new instructions taken throughout April we will even give you the first three months FREE on a fully managed let! Elaine went on to comment ‘Here at Munslow Bailey Gray we do not compromise on service, and believe that we offer a better and more personal service than the other larger agents in Horsham who are often managing much larger numbers of

properties restricting the amount of time they are physically able to spend servicing their clients’ best needs and perhaps more importantly ensuring they are managing their clients properties properly. We deliberately keep our overheads low, and pass these savings on to our clients wherever possible. If you are a potential Landlord, why don’t you drop in to our office in Piries Place for a chat, or just to pick up some information about our services.

A new Italian design icon is born Fiat add to the 500 range with a collaboration with Gucci Olli Nott Motors Reporter

olli@the-resident.co.uk

In the year that sees the celebration of both the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy and Gucci’s 90th anniversary, Gucci and Fiat are proud to unveil the 500 by Gucci. A special edition of the iconic Fiat 500 has been customised by Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini in partnership with Fiat’s Centro Stile. This unique collaboration between two of Italy’s most respected brands represents the perfect combination of craftsmanship and style. Launched on the opening day of Milan Fashion Week, the 500 by Gucci was also presented at the Geneva International Auto Show from March 3rd to13th, in a dedicated Gucci popup store within the Fiat stand. Frida Giannini said, “In the 50s the Fiat 500 created a style revolution when it first hit the road. It quickly become the must-have car of its time. “Travelling in style has also been at the heart of Gucci ever since Guccio Gucci founded his company as a producer of leather trunks, suitcases and handbags in 1921. “So, when Lapo Elkann suggested the idea of this collaboration it struck me as a perfect opportunity to create a new modern travel statement in this Gucci’s 90th anniversary year”. The black and white colours of

the 500 by Gucci, in unique eyecatching glossy pearl glass paint, set the stage for a neo-classic black and white film. These two distinct colors complement one another: black, with detailing in shiny chrome paired with interiors that contrast sharp black and white, for a contemporary and racy attitude or white, with satin chrome detailing and ivory and black interiors for a softer, sophisticated look. The exterior is further personalized by 16” rims, including the unmistakable retro design of the rays, working with the surrounding exterior colors and representing a novelty for this category of car. The hubcaps feature the interlocking GG in the same color of the body of the car and the cursive Gucci signature appears on the hatchback as well on the doorpost. The version equipped with Fiat’s 1.4, 100bhp engine comes with rear brake callipers in Gucci green. The car’s silhouette is outlined by Gucci’s signature green-red-green stripe, which runs along the whole body and links the exterior to the interior. The stripe also appears inside on the seats, on the gear shift, the key-cover, the carpets, and in an innovative finish on the seatbelts. The interior space of the 500 by Gucci is stylish yet functional down to every last detail: chic embroidery, exclusive materials, glossy and satin chromes, the velvety varnish on the

“radioboard,” the two-toned seats in Frau leather with the Guccissima print. The 500 by Gucci will initially be available from April 1st to June 30th exclusively by pre-order online at www.500bygucci.com, with a list price in Italy that starts from around €17,000. The car will also be displayed in exclusive locations in metropolitan cities such as Paris, London and Tokyo, followed by the European commercial launch in July. It will then become available in the rest of the world at the end of the year. Completing the customised outfit

is the exclusive 500 by Gucci collection, including travel accessories, small leather goods, drivers, tracksuits, bombers, driver gloves, sunglasses and a watch, which will be available in select Gucci stores and online at www.gucci.com from the end of the month. Critics are to be warned that this isn’t a gimmick, and although the 500 range includes the 500byDiesel, 500 Blackjack and the 500 Bi-colore, the 500 by Gucci is perfectly suited to conquer the market. I’ll take one please!

The Toyota Hybrid Challenge – an update Monday, April 18 saw many people’s disheartening sighs as they trundled back to work. I on the other hand, took a trip down to Motorline Toyota’s dealership, ready to take the Hybrid Challenge, seen last week. I had never driven an automatic gearbox before, but the Prius is so simple and easy to drive, I was soon off to take the challenge. The route you take to try and achieve the best mpg takes you out of

the Toyota garage and up along Lyons Road, heading through sleepy little Slinfold and up to the A29. Along there you have a quick blast on the throttle, hearing the 1.8 litre VVT-I kick in, before you cruise along to the Five Oaks mini roundabout, heading back towards Horsham. Along there, the downhill roads allow you to be propelled along just on electric power. It’s so quiet! Just as you come over the small bridge you turn back into the Toyota

garage, where your total mpg reading is taken and then written up on the ‘Top Gear’ styled leader-board. It’s a pretty tense moment. Although I’d never driven an automatic car before, or even a hybrid, I achieved an average mpg reading of 68.6 mpg – I’ll be trying again soon however. Can you beat me? Head to Motorline Toyota, Lyons Corner, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 0SY or call on 01403 790766

Horsham’s long wait is finally over hornetsreview.co.uk Football

Horsham are almost safe from relegation after their first league win in 14 attempts, a run stretching back to January. Delighted boss John Maggs admitted to a “general feeling of relief” and added: “That helps us tremendously. With all the chances we had, those three goals could have been five or six. The lads are really happy.” This success was the perfect way to mark Gary Charman’s 500th appearance for the club, on the ground where he suffered a bad injury two years ago.

Handed the captaincy in honour of reaching his personal landmark, Charman assured his side the early advantage by winning the toss to leave home goalkeeper James Reading staring at the sun. Reading’s short goal kick to Michael Peacock was pounced on by Billy Dunn, who charged towards goal and crossed for Jamie Brotherton to give the visitors a 20th-minute lead. Horsham enjoyed the better of the first half and got a further boost in stoppage time when James Burgess was sent off for pushing and kicking out at Ryan Woodford. Two minutes after the break, the 10 men seemed likely to equalise when Tom Graves was penalised for a

foul on Greg Ngoyi in the area. But Mark Zawadski thwarted the same Hendon player by spectacularly tipping the ball away for a corner to maintain Horsham’s lead. The impressive Dunn’s dazzling run and shot over the crossbar proved to be his final contribution before Steve Davies took his place and soon missed a great chance. Davies seemed to have made up for his miss with a header into the bottom corner, only for Reading to get down well.

It’s celebration time for Paul Kennett and Jamie Cade

The second goal came nine minutes from time after Jamie Cade won a free kick. Anthony Storey and Cade played a short one-two before Storey chipped over Reading for Cade to head in. Horsham sealed a memorable victory when Kennett snapped up the rebound after Storey’s shot was saved. The Hornets are offering free admission for all senior citizens when Wealdstone visit Gorings Mead tomorrow (Saturday). They visit Croydon Athletic on Easter Monday before the much-anticipated Sussex Senior Cup semi-final against Brighton and Hove Albion Reserves at Worthing on Thursday.

Hugh Samuels scored from inside his own half to earn a point for Horsham YMCA against mid-table Chipstead. YM are at least leaving the Ryman League with some fight. Zak Henry’s strike was cancelled out by two preventable goals from Chipstead frontman Kofi Quartey before Samuels’ stunner. Manager John Cumberbatch said: “Chipstead had quite a few chances in the second half that they should have put away. I thought to myself ‘Thank God their strikers are similar to ours and have missed a lot’. “They will feel they probably should have won it, but my view is that in the first half we were a better side than them. “I don’t think we dominated as much as we did last week, but at the end of the game we had two or three chances where we should have scored.” Louis Hollingsworth and Jason

Thompson went close for the Chips before YM opened the scoring with their first meaningful attack. A long free kick by goalkeeper Mark Fox was flicked on by striker Gavin Gordon, Michael Abnett fired the ball back across goal and Henry was on hand to fire home.

Ray Freeman should have brought the visitors level and Tom Youle went close with a header at the other end before a mad and somewhat laughable 10 minutes of football. A gaping hole opened in YM’s defence, allowing striker Quartey to round the keeper and slot in, then Fox

Hugh Samuels embarrasses Chipstead keeper Martin Grant

and Daryl Plummer collided to leave Quartey the simplest of tap-ins. The Chips’ lead was shortlived as YM levelled in bizarre fashion when defender Samuels punted a long free kick from inside his own half. Chipstead keeper Martin Grant tripped over, allowing the ball to sail over his head and into the net. Both sides could have nicked all three points at the death. Quartey ought to have completed a hat-trick with a lob that dipped just wide and YM’s Tony Reid blazed over from just five yards. Youth team star Charlie Abrehart made a late appearance from the bench and caught the eye of Cumberbatch. The boss said: “He showed a lot of enthusiasm and confidence. He was only on for a short period of time, but he showed he had a lot of desire.

“He won the ball back in midfield for us, which was key at the time, and when he got the ball further forward I think that he showed a lot of bravery and skill. I was very pleased with him. “Players like Charlie are the players I will be looking towards. Some players get over the age of about 24, don’t listen and think they know it all, despite the fact that they are very average. “That’s one of the problems we’ve got, absolutely. “Although we have reasonable turnouts at training, I need 100 per cent. You can work on things in training, but then you get into a game and you see one or two players that haven’t been to training and things are going wrong. “That is one of the things that creates problems for us and I don’t want that to happen next year.”

Shorter race at Brands Hatch hampers Cooper Jez Cooper Motor Sport

For the second race of the season, Southwater’s Rory Cooper travelled to Brands Hatch in Kent. Qualifying eighth was not bad, but we needed and expected to be in the top five after the Mallory result and recent engine tune. Tyres played a big part, with the warm weather affecting most of us in some way. Go hard on tyre pressures and the tyres will start to fade after giving you a fast start. Go softer and you start slow but gain later. With 34 cars on the grid, the start

is a tense period – particularly when you are straight into one of the most notorious corners in racing, Paddock Hill Bend. The start was clean and most held station at the front, with Rory quickly moving up to fifth. The leaders, including Rory, came round Graham Hill Bend and onto Cooper Straight. When Patrick Fletcher tried to push between Rory and another car, Rory held his position. As the cars touched, Fletcher swerved back clipping the car of Tibbs, sending it flying into the barriers at high speed. The race was stopped and a restart needed once all repairs were

complete. This made it a shortened race, a disadvantage to Rory due to the settings we opted for. Rory’s car bogged down due the tuning issue from the start, particularly as it was hot. The tyres only started to come on song for the last three laps, but he lost two places and was unable to make them up. Rory finished 10th, which does give good points for the Championship despite us being disappointed. The good thing was that both of the Championship leaders failed to finish, which helps our title cause. A bit to do to be ready for the next round at Cadwell Park on May 8, but we’ll be there.

Wood inspires Heath to trophy triumph Ben Ganesh Youth Football

Broadbridge Heath U18 won the Sussex County Youth League Cup, beating an Eastbourne Borough U18 side who top their division with a goal difference of +70. Goals from man of the match Michael Wood and Jude Nwachukwu put the Bears two up before half time in the final at Peacehaven. Stuart Barber’s flick added deserved gloss to a famous victory before Borough managed a late consolation goal. Heath opened the scoring after only six minutes. Barber tore down the left and delivered a ball into the box, which Nwachukwu laid back for Wood to drive in. Shane Meech’s shot was saved after another Barber cross, Ollie Moore twice shot narrowly wide and Wood drove straight at the goalkeeper when through on goal. Borough went close five minutes before half time, but what followed was pure class – one of the best moves by Heath all season. Keeper Ben Ganesh started it and the ball was switched to the left by one-touch passing through the midfield before Barber played the ball up to Wood. He spotted a forward run by Nwachukwu, who didn’t have to break stride before unleashing a 20-yard strike into the top corner. Andy Gray in his prime once said the second goal is the most important and the Heath players must have

noticed as they bundled Nwachukwu following his somersault. Borough heads dropped and Moore drove a shot on the turn inches off target, but the Eastbourne side were unhappy to see a goal ruled out for offside on the stroke of half time. Two minutes after the restart, Eastbourne’s captain in centre midfield surged forward and Ben Ganesh came to Heath’s rescue by tipping onto the crossbar. Heath had a chance to extend their lead when Wood was scythed down in the box just before the hour. But after five successful penalties out of five, Mr Reliable Jack Petersen blasted against the bar. Meech, Petersen and the superb Moore all tested the Borough gloveman before Heath effectively sealed victory 20 minutes from time. Nwachukwu won a free kick which Andy Putnam curled into the box and Barber flicked into the bottom corner. The Bears’ dugout jumped up in unison and Ganesh cartwheeled in joy in a similar fashion to Peter Schmeichel after the 1999 Champions League final. Borough scored a consolation with a whipped free kick before sub Tim Stevens claimed the rare feat of getting the final touch of the League Cup final with his first touch of the ball.

Youth League unless Arundel win their final four matches and improve their goal difference by 20. Southwater U18 led 2-0 at half time against Worthing Minors Athletic U18 thanks to goals by Luke Holmwood and Dan Rose. But Athletic hit back to win 6-3 despite Holmwood’s second. Horsham U15 were pipped to the

Division 1 title in the Sussex Sunday Youth League despite beating new champions Hove Rivervale U15. The young Hornets recovered from an early goal to win 2-1 at previouslyunbeaten Rivervale, with goals by the usual suspects – Jake Legrange and Zak Comber. Anthony Jupp rattled the crossbar at 1-1 and Lewis Blaney made a great

save to stop Rivervale equalising near the end. The result meant Horsham, unbeaten the league, still had an outside chance of the title when they defeated Hastings Town 2000 U15 6-1 with goals by Comber (two), Stanley Rice (two), Legrange and Connor Cushing. But Rivervale also won their final match to finish three points clear at
