Campaigners against the axing of the 86 bus have won at least a temporary reprieve

Matthew James News Editor

An under-threat bus service has been saved, for the time being at least, after a campaign highlighted by The Resident. Cowfold residents launched a determined bid to persuade West Sussex County Council not to scrap the 86 bus as part of its cost-cutting measures. The 86 serves Horsham, Southwater, West Grinstead, Partridge Green, Shermanbury, Cowfold, Bolney, Ansty, Cuckfield including Warden Park School, and Haywards Heath including the Princess

Royal Hospital. The service was one of more than 60 highlighted by The Resident in May as being recommended for removal in September or October. But almost half of the services originally listed – including the 86 – have been spared the axe until at least April next year. They do not appear on the county council’s revised list of service changes in October or January. Caroline Collins, who helped lead the campaign to save the 86, said: “The coverage in The Resident has been fantastic, with some great pictures to grab people’s attention. “It’s important that the paper has been prominently located in Horsham and

elsewhere, helping ensure that democracy has won out. “The attention has enabled the public to react in a timely manner and allowed the council to ensure it delivers services that the taxpaying public require. “It is unfortunate that we should lose any services, but when we work together we are able to minimise the disruption caused.” Campaigners Dawn Jelley, Anita Casey and Mrs Collins told The Resident: “The working group has taken into consideration not just the 6,000 responses received, but they have revisited the criteria previously set out and have compared this with key questions.

Weight Loss is all about a positive state of mind says Sue McColl. ith regular news reports focusing on rising levels of obesity W – and celebrity diets dominating magazines, there’s no doubt that improving the nation’s health is a top priority. But while everyone

knows about the dangers of excess weight, managing to change to a healthier lifestyle remains a struggle for many busy, hard working people. Sue McColl from Chessington was one of those people and had been attempting to lose weight through numerous calorie counting diets for years. The turning point for Sue was a weight loss programme that focused on changing attitudes to food and eating. This programme is called Sit&Slim and is offered by Miruji Health Spa. The Miruji Health Spa offering is essentially a technologically advanced therapeutic massage chair that helps the body relax and relieve stress while, most importantly, listening to a professionally structured programme of audio tapes that encourage the brain to develop a different relationship to food and eating. The tapes use a technique called Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to engender positive attitudes and encourage the listener to take control of their eating and exercise habits. The technique has been popularized by practitioners such as Paul McKenna and has been specifically developed to focus on weight loss for Miruji by top personal excellence coach Tianne Croshaw. Sue says that, at first, losing weight while simply “sitting” sounded too good to be true. But as she points out, it’s the powerful audio programme that come with the therapeutic wellbeing chair that makes the system so effective. For Sue McColl, the transformation has been extraordinary and she attributes this entirely to the Miruji Health Spa.

Sue McColl’s 4 stone weight loss stor y “My doctor was concerned about my weight problem and recommended I diet. Over the years I’ve tried all manner of diets but I always seemed to put the weight back on again far too easily. I’d never considered myself to be someone who’d ‘let themselves go’, but I just couldn’t keep my weight in check. When I first tried the Miruji Health Spa it was more in hope than expectation and I admit I was a bit skeptical at first. But it’s been a revelation for me. The massage is wonderfully relaxing but it’s the tapes that I listened to that made me think and feel differently about food and my outlook on life that has completely changed me for the better. I have lost 4 stone in weight but, more importantly, my confidence has gone through the roof! Best of all, I can spend the whole day shopping with my daughters and not feel tired or frumpy. It sounds corny, but it really has changed my life”.

RSA’s boost for Horsham FC

News in Brief

challenging times.” Mark Christer, managing director of RSA, said: “We are really proud to support our local football club here in Horsham. “It is really important that the club invests in providing the best for its team now and in the future. We really look forward to welcoming Horsham FC to their new home.” The Resident spoke to six people at RSA to arrange a photograph in the company’s office yesterday (Thursday), only to be told eventually that this was not possible at short notice due to health and safety rules affecting visitors.

Former chartered accountant Deryck Wright has succeeded Tom George as president of Horsham Lions Club. It is a third spell in the role for Mr Wright, from Southwater, who has been a member of the club for 36 years. He said: “My aims are to increase club membership and boost our income from fundraising events to enable us to donate more to good causes. I am pleased that the focus of our activities this year will be on helping young people.” For more information about Lions Club grants, visit www.horshamlions.

Horsham’s largest employer has given a major boost to Horsham Football Club in its fight for a new ground. Hornets chairman Kevin Borrett said in May: “Our contract for the purchase of the Holbrook Club allows RSA to take 50 per cent of any profit achieved from the disposal of the Holbrook Club within five years of our purchase (in 2007). “If any amount had to be paid to the RSA then we could not afford to build the new ground and sustain the offer made to the Holbrook Club, rendering the scheme unviable.” Now RSA has decided to waive the clause, giving the football club an

opportunity to redevelop part of the Holbrook site early without incurring any financial penalties.

are really proud ‘toWesupport our local football club ’

The club is working on plans for a new ground elsewhere in Horsham. An application will be submitted to Horsham District Council in the next few months. Mr Borrett said on Wednesday:

“This is no longer a dream, this is a reality, and we are excited at the prospect of moving to a new home for our team in 2013-14. “We are extremely grateful to RSA for not only allowing us to work towards our goal but also assisting us in securing the long-term future of the club.” John Lines, chief executive of Horsham FC, said: “We are absolutely delighted that RSA has taken this course of action. It will help us develop our vision for the future by building a ground that the club and the town will be proud to be associated with. “This will provide a muchneeded boost for the team in these

Roaring success

Campaigners happy with reprieve for the 86 bus Continued from Page 1 “The points they raised as areas for concern are exactly those we presented in our meeting on June 8. “We are extremely pleased that our points have been properly ‘heard’ as we had feared they would fall on deaf ears. “The county has therefore had no choice but to remove the 86 from the initial phase of cuts and its subsidy remains until April 2012. We are very pleased with this outcome. “All along we have been realistic about the need for the council to

make savings in this difficult economic time, but had complained that the timeframe was unrealistic for our community to put together a sustainable alternative. “The county council has indicated they will work with us to find a solution by discussing commercial options and community services. “We look forward to doing this and will be happy to see our local council representatives being able to take a proactive role in supporting the community that elected them.” Cllr Andrew Dunlop, district councillor for Cowfold, Shermanbury and

West Grinstead, said: “There was a sensible recognition that time is required to come up with a solution that works for the community.” The 98 Roffey to Southwater service and the 106 Steyning to Worthing are among other services that were previously threatened with reductions or cuts but have been spared until at least April. A full list of cuts is available on our website, Cllr Pieter Montyn, council Cabinet member for highways and transport, said: “Decisions such as these are not easy to make. But we simply have to

make these savings and unfortunately some supported services will have their subsidies withdrawn. “We received a huge response rate to our impact assessment. Many people were asking us for more time so that alternatives and other options could be explored. “Where possible we have done our best to offer this and as a result many of the changes in the first phase of reductions will now take effect early next year.” The council says it is actively working with bus companies to look for other ways to keep buses running.

Bags of cash Shoppers can support Cancer Research UK by taking unwanted goods to Tesco, Broadbridge Heath, on August 6-7. Tesco spokesman Pauline Stevens said: “We’re delighted to be hosting the donation station, particularly as all donations will be going to support our local Cancer Research UK stores. “Unfortunately, many of us have been affected by cancer to some extent and the impact can be felt by almost everyone. I know the people of Horsham will pull together and donate all they can to this very worthy cause.” Items that can be donated include good-quality clothing, accessories, quality homewares, books, CDs, DVDs and mobile phones. Jessica Garman, of Cancer Research UK, said: “We’d like to thank Tesco’s Extra for allowing us to hold our donation station with them. “We hope people will take advantage of this easy way to donate and have a clearout, while lending their support to a great cause.”

Protester jailed The son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour was jailed for 16 months for his rampage at a student fees protest in London last December. Charlie Gilmour, 21, from Billingshurst, admitted violent disorder after hanging from a Union Flag on the Cenotaph and jumping on to a car in a royal convoy. He was also found to have hurled a rubbish bin at the vehicle. After he was pictured on the Cenotaph, the student apologised for his “terrible insult” to the war dead.

Fight against housing is not over Matthew James News Editor

A campaigner against major housing development in Southwater has welcomed an expected change in council policy. But Ian Thwaites, of Keep Southwater Green, warned this week: The battle is far from over. Cllr Robert Nye, leader of Horsham District Council, is recommending it abandons the so-called interim statement approach, which could have paved the way for 500 homes in Southwater and 500 more in Billingshurst.

this is not ‘theWeendrealise of the matter ’

The council this year consulted on possible options to meet the shortterm housing needs of the district. Its Draft Interim Statement: Managing Development in Horsham District set out three options: • Option One: No planned growth. Responding to applications as they are submitted. • Option Two: Limited planned growth. About 250 homes at both Billingshurst and Southwater. • Option Three: Notably planned growth.  About 500 homes at both Billingshurst and Southwater. Cllr Nye told The Resident last week: “A majority of those who responded wished for unplanned

growth. I can only assume that the residents who did not respond to our consultation have no strong preference one way or the other. “I am therefore recommending that the council abandons the interim statement approach and instead moves forward with planning alternatives for the medium to long term.” Cllr Nye was making recommendations at a council Cabinet meeting as The Resident went to press last night (Thursday). A final decision will be made by all members of the council in September. Dr Thwaites told The Resident exclusively: “We are delighted to hear that Cllr Robert Nye has listened to the people of Southwater and Billingshurst and is recommending the interim statement be withdrawn. “We thank him for being true to his word and for taking note of the submissions we have made. We also thank The Resident for the help it has given to ensure that the voice of the people in these communities is heard. “We realise this is not the end of the matter. We still feel that our position – which is not opposed to all development and not specifically in favour of unplanned development – is being misrepresented to councillors. “It was the council wording of the options presented in the ‘consultation’ documents that left both communities with no option but to vote for Option One. “It was the only option that could, and hopefully now has, prevented the interim statement being imposed upon us – and with it the buildings with no rights of appeal. “Had an option been offered that

allowed small planned developments with a high proportion of affordable housing, this might have gained widespread support. “Our position has been from the very beginning a simple one – we are opposed under all circumstances to further large-scale development in the village of Southwater.” A statement by Southwater Parish Council said: “At an extraordinary meeting on June 1, the parish council agreed to object to progressing the interim statement. “It is therefore pleased that the

district council is supporting this view and that each planning application coming forward throughout the district will be assessed on its own merits. “It is understood that an application to build about 500 dwellings west of Worthing Road in Southwater will be lodged imminently. “It is anticipated this will be discussed by the parish council on Thursday, September 8, at Southwater Leisure Centre (7.30pm). More information will be available on this meeting nearer the time.”

Air pollution worry The public is being asked to respond to proposals for an air quality management area in Cowfold. Recent tests showed levels of nitrogen dioxide are likely to exceed the maximum allowed in central parts of the village, including The Street, Station Road and Bolney Road. A spokesman for Horsham District Council said: “In Cowfold the air pollution is due to the large number of vehicles using the road, combined with the stop-start nature of driving conditions. “Although these conditions may also occur in other parts of the district, action must be taken when amounts of air pollution are exceeded at locations with ‘relevant exposure’ – places where people live, work or go to school.” The district council will consult with West Sussex County Council and other interested parties to look at ways of reducing levels of the pollutant. The deadline for comments from the public is July 31. Contact environmental protection officer Lisa Hawtin on 01403 215200 or uk or write to her at Horsham District Council, Park House, North Street, Horsham RH12 1RL.

Council criticised Horsham District Council has been accused of lacking heart after it refused to overturn a disabled pensioner’s parking ticket. Muriel Gilham, 83, from Capel, got a ticket for at least £35 in Lower Tanbridge Way, Horsham. Husband Norman said three disabled bays were full so Mrs Gilham left the car for a few minutes but failed to display her blue badge. He said: “The district council is just stone-hearted.” But the council said in a letter to Mrs Gilham: “Our records indicate that we have cancelled a previous penalty charge notice under similar conditions. I regret therefore that this penalty charge will not be cancelled.”

News in Brief

Carnival will return to Horsham Park on Sunday as part of Sparks in the Park – and everyone is invited

Tim Casey and Dominic Godfrey helped raise £1,750 for the Alzheimer’s Society and Canine Partners by running the 45-mile London Monopoly route. The pair, from Horsham and Warnham, joined three other runners from West Sussex to pound the streets of London, following the route of the Monopoly board from Old Kent Road to Mayfair. Adding fun to the 11-hour run, they sported top hats, moustaches and vests designed around the board game. Mr Godfrey said: “The run was hard work, but really great fun. Oxford Street was chaos as we hit it early afternoon at peak shopping time, but we certainly put a smile on people’s faces when they realised what we were doing. “Many people asked who I was raising money for and when I explained about the way a canine partner can change the life of someone with disabilities, they donated on the spot. “Navigation was tough at times, but all the runners enjoyed spending their Saturday in a truly unique way.” See the-monopoly-run-2011

Organised by Horsham District Council to celebrate the one-year countdown to the London Olympics, the Shout Out Carnival will encourage people aged 10 to 18 to celebrate things they feel passionately about. Colourful flag-making workshops will take place all afternoon for those who want to take part in the carnival parade around Horsham Park at 4pm on Sunday. And samba workshops will be on offer for anyone who has ever wondered what it’s like to play in a samba band. Absent-minded Lord and Lady Loud Hailer will be in attendance at the parade, but recent intelligence suggests they have forgotten their costumes. Passers-by will be encouraged to help them make new ones. Visitors can look forward to seeing the magnificent Blue Touch Paper Carnival Horn, the Top Spin Dance Troupe wearing flamboyant

Kinetika costumes, the fun and lively Raw Samba Band and a host of community groups. Nick Jenkins, community development officer at the district council, said: “Carnival is about celebrating and having a good time. It’s also about speaking your mind, expressing yourself and what matters to you. “The cultural roots of carnival mean it’s very much about people and their lives and we want to make sure we incorporate those elements. “Horsham residents and the Strawford Centre have made a major contribution, with leading carnival artists working alongside disability to make carnival truly inclusive. “I am delighted that the first commissioned costume/float from the BTP project will be making its way from the opening ceremony of the Island Games, recently held on the Isle of Wight, and forming the centrepiece of Horsham’s carnival.

Your Guide to drinking water Three Guide groups in Horsham have created vibrant flags to highlight the plight suffered by more than 800 million people – no access to clean drinking water. More than 60 flags, produced at workshops supported by Southern Water, will be paraded around Horsham Park on Sunday. Kevin Buck, chairman of the Southern WaterAid committee, said: “It is fantastic that the Guides have taken this issue to their hearts and are so passionate about making others aware of the issue faced by millions.

“Fantastic designs have brought this serious issue to life. It will provide a real spectacle at the carnival.” Pam Leadbeater, Guide commissioner for Horsham, said: “This has been a great project for the Guides to get involved in. “It has really raised their awareness of how many people across the world are not able to just turn on the tap and have a supply of clean, safe water to drink. “We do all take it for granted in this country and it is important that people are aware of the problems faced by others.”

Monopoly money

Wheely good idea The Meals on Wheels service of West Sussex County Council needs volunteer drivers. Cllr Peter Catchpole, council Cabinet member for adults’ services, said: “The service Meals on Wheels provides is vital to the people of West Sussex. Why not do something rewarding and help out in your community?” Phone 01903 231341 for more information.

Hip hip hurray Horsham mum Judy Porter-Wise cycled 30 miles for charity, despite having undergone hip revision surgery this year. The IT training consultant, 44, raised more than £100 by riding from Handcross to Hove as part of the Capital to Coast Cycle Challenge. She said: “It was a real challenge and was a lot hillier than I’d expected. We made it in just over four hours and my hips have apparently survived.” More than 1,300 cycling enthusiasts raised £250,000 for organising charity Norwood, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the Down’s Syndrome Association.

Parking penalties Horsham District Council says it has strengthened the enforcement of parking restrictions in East Street, Horsham, with penalty charge notices being issued if drivers do not comply.

Two Horsham youngsters are raising money for the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal for East Africa by reading seven books in seven days. Zillyan and Zevon Rustom and two cousins decided to take on the challenge after seeing reports on Newsround. Zillyan, nine, said: “We saw the story about the drought in East Africa and wanted to do something to help. Since we’re on Summer holidays from school, we’ve got plenty of time on our hands, but we wanted to really challenge ourselves. “The four of us are each going to read a book every day for a whole week. It’s going to be difficult, but we really want to help the people who are suffering so much in Africa.” The original fundraising target was £150, but the children have already beaten that with donations from friends and family. Now they are looking to see how much they can raise from other people. To donate to the appeal visit www.

MEP Sharon Bowles, who represents Horsham district in the European Parliament, has backed proposals for more voluntary ‘country of origin’ labelling on food products. She said: “Such labelling is important, not only because consumers are entitled to know where their food comes from, but so that British consumers can buy British when they want to. “I don’t believe UK manufacturers should be forced by the European Union to comply in this area, but rather volunteer information which will empower consumers. This is already the case in many British supermarkets.”

Snack Wagon back The Snack Wagon and the youth support team are operating again in Horsham Park on Friday evenings until the end of August. The team consists of volunteer youth workers, fully trained and checked by the Criminal Records Bureau, who provide advice and information to young people about education, drugs, health and other subjects. A range of activities are available at the Snack Wagon, such as real ‘beer goggles’, which help young people consider the effect of alcohol on their co-ordination and safety. Young people receive free toasties, confectionary and bottles of water. The initiative involves many organisations, including Horsham District Council, Horsham District Community Safety Partnership, Horsham Matters, Horsham Parish Church, Brighton Road Baptist Church and the West Sussex Youth Service.

In response to Briony Rendell’s letter, ‘Pensioners are the rudest people’ (The Resident, July 1). 1. “Arrogance”: Could well be a counter to the perceived lack of good manners, and respect to their elders, shown by a goodly proportion of younger folk? 2. “Rudeness”: Could, as an example, possibly be a senior citizen’s instruction to a disrespectful (invariably of the younger generation) passenger, slouching on a train seat with legs horizontally resting on the cushioning of the seat directly opposite. 3. “Lack of respect for the younger generation”: We have to be careful not to be subservient with younger people, otherwise one risks accusations of violating a silly law and aspects of the CRB. 4. “Neighbourhood gossip”: I would offer an enlightenment to your correspondent, that this trait is an ageless phenomenon. 5. “Pushing in front of younger people in queues”. A harsh judgement. This contributor’s experience has been quite vice-versa. 6. “Constant complaining about everything”: Was it ever thus, and always will be. A natural comparison on the theme of ‘not like that in the old days’. 7. “Driving at 20mph everywhere”: A senior citizen generally, not always, actually tries to obey such intrusions as speed limits. Quite often a ‘whizz everywhere generation’ driver will sail past one, usually ignoring road safety. 8. “In fact, just driving. They need to retake their tests”: An impertinent remark, perhaps typifying the previously mentioned lack of good manners and respect. 9. “Pushing past people and barging others out of the way”: A fair proportion of elderly folk are physically incapable of such pushing and shoving. 10. “Giving you a glare as soon as you step on the bus to pay, then having the cheek to take a seat”: Your correspondent appears to have a chip on her shoulder about free bus travel for her elders.

In 2008 Bill Matthews sent an email to me about the time when the Canadians were at Denne Park, near Horsham. At that time I was searching for information about Denne Park House, where a picture was made of officers of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders from Cornwall in Canada. Today I received a picture. It is a pity that it is blurry. The location is unknown, but it could be Horsham. Do you know where this location is? The only part of interest to identify the location is the fountain (?) in the background. It could be a park. The photo must have been made before the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944. At least one of them did not survive the war, because he was killed in action in Normandy. Two names are mentioned as MacDonald, but it could be McDonald.

An act of vandalism

Life was a gas

Car-free utopia?

Shopping malls came into vogue during the Seventies – yet another import from the United States. Every town had to have one and Horsham was no exception. But the damage caused to our former market town in making this possible was, in my view, an act of vandalism. Looking at the contrasting pictures of 1951 and today (The Resident, July 8) illustrates this claim. The current photograph shows the tail-end of Swan Walk housing Boots superstore. This bland, red brick pile replaced a line of attractive and historic buildings, two of which sported traditional Horsham slate roofs. But the principal sacrifice to the construction of what is now Swan Walk was the Capitol Theatre and Cinema. The original Swan Walk – opened during the mid-Seventies by Lavinia, Duchess of Norfolk – was named after The Swan public house in West Street, a bow-fronted building demolished to make way for a new shopping experience. To its credit, the original Swan Walk was granted a design award by the prestigious Civic Trust. Not so, the current revamped glitzy shopping mall. Turning to the 1951 photograph, the demolition of the Capitol Theatre caused an outcry among leading Horsham residents. It was the meeting place for some of the town’s notable worthies – acclaimed novelist Eva Hanagan, likened to a modern Jane Austen, and the eccentric Judy Prewett come to mind. Both of these women added a touch of intellectual colour to our town. Next door to the theatre was an attractive tea-room, its neighbour being Horsham’s one and only milliners. Further along were business premises occupied by a firm of solicitors or accountants. And towards the end of this row of shops were the showrooms of the then South-Eastern Gas Board. All demolished in the name of progress. In its wisdom, our local council considered a branch of M&S to be a greater benefit to Horsham than a well-patronised theatre and a few smaller businesses more suited to a Sussex market town! I rest my case.

A host of memories were unleashed in Past and Present (The Resident, July 8), starting with the entrance to the Capitol Cinema with its exotic Spanish frontage where I watched films. The next building was a restaurant with a massive wisteria covering one side. Sometimes I would get some of their delicious scones or cakes as a special treat. There was a florist on the corner where I could get flowers at a reduced price on Saturdays for my mother. Tucked round the corner is my school. After Victory Road School burned down in January 1940, the girls section was housed in the Methodist Church, London Road. These buildings provide the façade to the town gasworks. The smart modern office and main entrance is in this row. Behind lay four gasholders and a tall retort house for making gas. The largest gasholder (number four) came from Bristol, where Barnes Wallis was working on an experimental airship. When the sister ship went up in flames, the project was dropped and Horsham Coal, Gas and Coke Company snapped up some of the plant. On Sundays my brother and I would take a plate of roast dinner to Dad at work. My brother climbed the retort building to tell him. The first time I climbed the iron ladder with him I was frightened down by the scream of a safety valve, but my brother joined the Army when I was 12 and I was so proud when I made it to the top by myself. Now we have clean and useful buildings but no character.

I was interested to see your story and pictures from the car crash in Comptons Lane, which took out part of an unfortunate neighbour’s garage on his birthday last week. From what little I saw of the scene on the day of the crash, it was already a magnet for rubber-neckers and gawpers. I do not wish to comment in any way on the guilt or otherwise of the man arrested in connection with this incident. However, it is undeniably true to say there would be no car crashes if there were no cars.

Photos by Craig Simmonds

Horsham MP Francis Maude officially opened the South East office of the Alzheimer’s Society. Cllr Claire Vickers, chairman of Horsham District Council, also attended the celebration in Bishopric, Horsham, along with the High Sheriff of West Sussex, the Deputy Lieutenant of West Sussex and other VIPs. About 26,000 people in Sussex and 750,000 in the UK have a form of dementia. Chris Wyatt, area manager for the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be a

frightening experience for many people. However, with access to the right support, people are able live well with the condition. “With so many people living with dementia in Sussex, it is vital that the Alzheimer’s Society reaches out to more people throughout the county.

Forest’s sports extravaganza Hawking Community narrowly beat defending champions Marconi into second place as boys at The Forest School enjoyed a sports day. Pupils took part in a round-robin of events including tag rugby, volleyball, basketball, softball, table tennis, long jump, javelin, cricket and shot put. Later they competed in traditional track events, cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd. One highlight was the staff-pupil relay, won by Branson Community. Matt Parsons, team leader for PE, said: “It was a really enjoyable day. Everyone played their part

regardless of ability, but there was also the opportunity for our talented pupils to shine. “We had great fun with strong competition between the communities and a really great atmosphere. “It has been a great year for the school. Our sports teams have done exceptionally well. We also have some extremely talented individuals, including four county rugby players, county cricketers, athletes and an international golfer. “With such talent in the school we are looking forward to many more sporting successes.”

Minister told about progress

Partnership chairman Natalie Brahma-Pearl, district councillor Roger Arthur, policing minister Nick Herbert, county councillor Brad Watson and Chief Insp Mark Trimmer

Do residents, businesses and visitors feel safe in Horsham district? That was the issue under the spotlight when Nick Herbert, minister for policing and criminal justice, attended a meeting of the Horsham District Community Safety Partnership. The MP for Arundel and South Downs heard how the partnership helped make the district the safest in West Sussex in 2010, with the priorities of reducing antisocial behaviour, acquisitive crime, environmental crime and violent crime, and

improving road safety. Natalie Brahma-Pearl, chairman of the partnership, said: “We invited Mr Herbert to attend our meeting so we could demonstrate to him the initiatives carried out by all of our partners, which all go to help ensure the district is a safe place to live, work and play. “Mr Herbert was impressed with our joint efforts. Hopefully we showed how the partnership punches well above its weight. “It is hoped that some of the best

practice we have developed will be shared with others and our efforts will be cited at a national level.” The Horsham District Community Safety Partnership involves Horsham District Council, West Sussex County Council, Sussex Police, Sussex Police Authority, Saxon Weald, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service, Surrey and Sussex Probation Trust and NHS West Sussex.

The foundation for success Two make up artists share their unique business model with James Hood, and explain how the work they do goes further than just skin deep James Hood Business Editor

Two local women have turned a passion for makeup into a successful business, having recently opened a new and unique studio. The Makeup Box Studio combines a makeup salon, school, photography and bridal or special occasion service all under one roof. The business was set up by Karen Loraine and Paula Rixon who have

more than 40 years’ experience in the industry combined. Both owners share the same vision for the business, which they say is about much more than just shades of lipstick and eyeliner. “What we do is all about building people’s confidence. A lot of people think ‘makeup studio’ and think that it is only about applying foundation but many of our clients feel so much better about themselves once they have been here. Whether it’s someone who has a prominent scar or burns, someone who has never been

able to get their makeup just right, or someone who wants to know how to make the best of themselves, our clients leave with their head held high, looking and, more importantly, feeling great”, said Karen. The make-up artist originally trained in London before going to work for the BBC and then on to Los Angeles, where she worked in the movie-making business. Karen added: “Although I learnt a lot in my TV and film career, I get much more pleasure from working with personal clients here than I do working in Hollywood. “I recently had a customer who had a burn on her face and when I finished, she burst into tears because it was the first time in years that she could look in the mirror and like herself.” But the new studio does not only help those who need help covering up scars or burns. The pair also believes their services are for everyday women and men with ordinary lives. The Makeup Box school teaches people how to apply a range of makeup using different techniques and products, depending on the individual’s requirements and taste. Paula and Karen can also blend custom-made foundations that suit any skin tone. Paula said: “Although we do a lot

Paula Rixon (left) and Karen Loraine

of makeup for parties, weddings and one-off events, we are also very proud of the fact that we teach people how to do their own makeup properly. And because of that we are empowering people to make the best of themselves. I love to be able to bring out the best features in someone.” Karen added: “It is a really important part of growing up. In school, you’re taught how to bake a cake or to sew, but no one shows you how to apply makeup, and these days it is really important to look and feel good when you are going for an interview or meeting.” Both groups of people and individuals are welcome at the company’s studio, at Foundry Court, where they can have their consultation, lessons, makeup applied and even

Boat race will raise St Catherine’s cash A popular annual Dragon Boat Festival organised by St Catherine’s Hospice takes place on September 4 and businesses in the area are invited to enter teams. Companies of all sizes are welcome to take part, swapping laptops for lifejackets in groups of 13 to 20 people, all in aid of charity. There is an entry fee of £515 and teams are expected to raise £750 in sponsorship. Michael Beasley, event organiser at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “This is the ninth Dragon Boat Festival and every year teams from local businesses battle it out in a series of races in the colourful 40-foot long Hong Kong-style boats, all in support of St Catherine’s. “Our Dragon Boat Festival is a great way to bring colleagues together from across your business – whatever the size.” Team fancy dress, circus stalls and games all add to the atmosphere at the event. All training and equipment

is provided on the day, along with your own marquee to set up a base camp and discuss race tactics. Michael added: “It’s a great way for your company to show support for the community, while also encouraging staff morale. We hope this year’s event will be our biggest yet, and we gratefully thank our sponsors Thomas Eggar and Edwards, as well as the Burrell family for kindly providing the use of the Knepp Estate free of charge. Sponsorship packages are available for businesses looking to raise their profile, demonstrate commitment to the community and partner with a great local cause that many employees will recognise as providing an invaluable service. St Catherine’s Hospice is dedicated to providing specialised end of life care and support to local people and their families, friends and carers. As an independent charity, the hospice relies on the generosity of the

photographs, all in one place, within a relaxing, discrete, friendly environment. Both of the makeup experts believe that as well as hard work, their success can be attributed to their passion for the work they do and understanding that it is not a superficial business, but one that helps people feel great on the inside as well as looking great on the outside. Karen said: “We absolutely love our work. And we get such a good feeling from knowing we have helped change someone’s life. People leave here transformed, more confident and happy. And we feel blessed to be able to do that everyday.” For more information about The Makeup Box Studio visit

‘Secret Seven’ renovate Springboard garden James Hood Business Editor

Seven employees from Elementus took a day out to help Horsham charity, the Springboard Project, recently by renovating a herb garden and giving it an educational theme. Elementus is a Horsham-based health, safety and environmental consultancy. Marketing Co-ordinator, Adam Curtis, said: “We painted a mural based on the children’s film Gnomeo and Juliet, a modern day take on the Shakespeare play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to fit in with the herb garden. “The added educational element was the names of herbs and their phonetic pronunciation. We also tidied up their herb garden and

re-sealed their Wendy House”. The Springboard Project, on Hurst Road in Horsham, is a haven for inclusive play and is a recreation centre for young people with special needs or disabilities and families with young children. They provide safe areas for games and interaction. Nigel Scott-Dickeson, Project Manager at The Springboard Project said: “Elementus has been supporting us for many years through group volunteering projects and fundraising. “The work was carried out with their usual enthusiasm, eye for detail and quality of workmanship. “Elementus is one of our most important partners, helping us to care for the hundreds of children and families we support in our centre at Springboard House and we greatly value such a vital relationship.”

Double success for Southern at Innovation Awards Southern has won in two categories at the 2011 Railway Industry Innovation Awards. The company, which operates rail services between London and the South Coast won the Cross-Industry Partnership award for its ‘Eyewitness’ crime reporting system and the Passenger Experience award for its ‘Railways for All’ initiative. Southern’s unique Eyewitness system enables staff to report incidents of crime and antisocial behaviour to its teams of Rail Neighbourhood

Officers (RNOs) by email using smart phones. With the data collected, the company can record or respond to reports of low-level crime and increase patrols in ‘trouble spots’. The judges at the awards commented: “We were impressed with the way Southern has addressed this issue, using the eyes and ears of people that are out on the railway, along with modern methods of communication, to improve safety and security on the railway.”

Southern’s Railway for All initiative extends beyond the statutory requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. Aspects of Southern’s approach to making rail travel accessible for all include an advanced travel assistance scheduling system, a travel support ID card, a priority seating scheme, a guide designed to help staff and static maps that can be read by sight or touch. The judges added: “We thought that Southern’s Railway for All programme caught the spirit of this category well, displaying an eagerness to do everything possible to help sections of society which could easily be overlooked and thus helping them to have a better experience of the railway.” Southern’s managing director, Chris Burchell, said: “I am delighted with these awards especially as they both bring real benefits to our passengers in very different ways. It is testament of our vision of making every journey better.” Southern was also a finalist in the Passenger Experience category, for

its new time saving ticketing initiatives. ‘Ticket on Departure’ machines allow customers who have booked their tickets online to collect them more quickly. Another of its services improves

efficiency for corporate and professional bookers and the Gatwick Express by being multi-lingual and allowing customers to print tickets at home, or have e-tickets sent to a mobile.

Businesses invited to take part in Festival of Sound Businesses in Horsham are being invited to host live music performances as part of September’s Festival of Sound. The month-long event will be started with a weekend of music in bars, restaurants, cafes and other places in the town, on Sunday, September 4. Organisers of the event are looking for possible venues to come forward and host some music, and all types of businesses are welcome.

The aim is to organise 100 live music events throughout the month and charity Horsham 100, which raises money for the Dame Vera Lynn Trust, has been nominated to benefit from any proceeds. The programme for the festival will be widely publicised leading up to and during September, meaning any businesses involved will benefit from increased exposure in the media and other forums.

The performances on Sunday, 4 September will coincide with the Big Nibble, an event which promotes fresh, local produce. There will be six stages set up around the town, each for a different genre of music. For more information on Festival of Sound or to put your business forward to host a music event, contact Sharon Dow at fos@sharondow. com or find the group on Facebook at

SEO for dummies Dan Purchase BritWeb

So, what exactly is SEO? The acronym stands for Search Engine Optimisation and is the process (or art) of promoting or ‘optimising’ a website so that it appears higher in the natural listings of search engines. How important is it? Massively important. Those looking for a website will not usually pass the first or second pages when searching on Google,

and we know because we all do it daily! So getting your organisation’s website at the top of these searches, and above your competitors, is likely to increase the traffic (otherwise known as users) to your website and will ultimately mean more business! So how is it done? Put simply, SEO can be divided into two sections. First is the ‘on-site’ optimisation. This means making sure your own site is tailored towards the key phrases you wish to be found for. The old SEO adage that ‘content is king’ is true. Make sure your site

of the best ways you can avoid being distracted by emails, is to stop checking them. She said: “The first thing I would recommend is to turn your ‘auto receive’ function on your computer off. This means you have to actively click on ‘get emails’ when you are ready, and you avoid being disturbed when you’re in the middle of something”. “It’s hard to focus on whatever you’re doing if you see or hear an email pop into your inbox. I respond to 10 at a time. When I click ‘receive’, undoubtedly another 10 arrive, but I know I’m always dealing with the really urgent ones immediately.” If you’ve ever been in the queue at Starbucks on a weekend and been checking your emails on your blackberry. Ask yourself why? Helen added: “Checking phones for messages makes people feel special and important, so we’ve all got into the habit of doing it perpetually. My advice would be to check them at a certain time during the day, when you are ready, and get on with your other things.” Stuart Smith runs his own taxi business, Stuart’s Taxi and Private Hire, and relies on email communications to keep in touch with new and

It helps me separate work from personal emails and saves me time.” Gareth Sear runs Sussex Web Marketing, which provides SEO and Google Adwords advice and services. He believes one of the biggest barriers to an organised inbox is email you

don’t need. “Spam mail is the bane of my life. I would recommend that everyone takes the time to not just delete newsletters and marketing e-shots, but to actively ‘unsubscribe’ from anything that you don’t need or want”. Helen Eade added: “Ultimately it’s down to self-discipline.” Although it might take some getting used to, give these tried and tested methods a go with your own inbox. They could be the key to helping you manage your emails, and thus, your life, more effectively.

Monitoring where your business ranks on Google and other search engines is an important part of your online strategy. But if you’re still unsure what it’s all about, SEO wizard Dan Purchase explains the basics and how you can get your website to the top of the list. contains text that is readable and appeals to your target audience whilst containing those same key phrases that people search for. Your selection of key phrases is vital. Use tools like Google’s own ‘Keyword Tool’ to get a rough idea of what people are searching for within your industry and tailor your search phrases accordingly. Don’t go for phrases that are too competitive straight away, look for terms that suit your business but don’t have massive competition. This is likely to get you success and ROI quicker. Be careful not to copy others and

make sure your content is unique as the search engines are more sophisticated than you think and duplicated copy can be penalised. Also, make sure you try to update or add more content on a regular basis, whether it’s articles, tutorials, blogs, your latest news and opinions or something else. The second element to consider is your in-bound links. These are links from other websites, which direct users to your own. Without getting too technical, these links are popular with Google and they come from a variety of sources, including: Social

media pages, news sites, directories, forums, blogs and more. Links from Horsham directories such as Visit Horsham or other local sites will help if your business trades in the area, and will increase the amount of people who click on a link to your site, boosting your SEO success! Dan is the managing director of BritWeb, a website design, SEO and online marketing company. He has lived in Horsham for nearly 30 years and has more than 10 years’ experience in his industry.

Stop smoking for the last time How many times have you put all your effort into stopping smoking, succeeded, only then to fall at the first hurdle when things got tough? Stress levels rise and before you know it you have reached for those familiar cancer sticks and you’re puffing away. Every smoker knows the health risks of smoking but most choose to ignore them. Nearly every smoker will say they smoke to relieve stress and stay calm but these benefits only last a few minutes, smoking actually has the opposite effect, raising blood pressure and causing agitation when the nicotine high subsides. You find yourself completely preoccupied with having your next

cigarette. There is also the financial cost. If smoking 20 a day, you spend £2912 a year on your habit. Over 20 years that is £58240.00 ! Just imagine what else that money could buy. Hypnotherapy works so well for clients wanting to become non-smokers because it tackles the problem by accessing the subconscious mind where your smoking habit is stored. Hypnotherapy does this by relaxation skills and the use of imagery. I find an initial consultation; followed by one session to become a nonsmoker is usually all that is needed. After the initial consultation I will write a personalised script for every client as all clients are treated as

individuals and all sessions are completely confidential. I pride myself on giving a caring, professional and affordable service to all my clients. I have a quiet consulting room in Horsham where there is free parking.

From Starbucks to stardom Gig Guide Horsham Area

A local band are now London bound as richly-deserved fame and fortune beckon James Hood Entertainment Editor

One of the friendly faces of Starbucks in Horsham has left to pursue a music career with his band, Mimi Soya. Chris Nairn and the rest of the band write and perform their own

material and have already achieved massive success with the release of their singles, videos and performing at gigs and concerts around the country. After originally forming in Brighton, the band was signed to record label LAB Records (Pegasus Bridge, Not Advised) in 2008 and now they are all headed for London. Mimi Soya are a pop-rock quartet

and they’ve written and recorded some huge pop anthems with addictive melodies and stirring guitar riffs. The four-strong band have supported some big names in their career so far, including Set Your Goals, Go:Audio, Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly and Newton Faulkner. Highlights also include playing at Wembley Stadium for a crowd of 30,000 for the Nike Human Race, following acts such as Moby and Pendulum. Another was in May 2009, when they completed a UK sell-out tour with US bands Cobra Starship, Sing it Loud and Cash Cash. The band has toured Europe several times, gaining a huge following and playing sold out shows with Dutch bands Destine and MakeBelieve. Last summer, they also joined Hadouken at Dutch festival BreakFest. Their success in Holland made it the perfect place to shoot their video for I Told You So, which has recently been named Kerrang!’s Video of the Week, and was played frequently every day on the TV channel. The Kerrang! radio station has also given plenty of airplay to the band’s track Doctor Doctor. Proving how successful the band has been since forming just three years ago, their latest EP, I Can’t Stand Pop Bands, has sold over 4000 copies

Gigs are sometimes cancelled or changed at short notice. To avoid disappointment please contact the venue.

Bad Boy Boogie - AC/DC Tribute Band

Australian rock and roll legends AC/DC have had quite an eventful career. Since their formation in 1973, the iconic hard rockers have sold over

200 million albums worldwide, as well as being responsible for the second greatest selling album of all time, with their 1980 masterpiece ‘Back In Black’ shifting an estimated 49 million copies (and counting). After playing live to millions of fans the world over, it seems only fitting that the South of England would be a base for one of their tribute bands. Que Bad Boy Boogie! With a line-up of lead singer Paul Davis, Si Fever-Leach on lead guitar, Mark Randon on rhythm guitar, bassist Jeff Scarry and drummer Steve Needham, Bad Boy Boogie have only one intention: to pay outstanding homage to their true idols in their extremely hard rocking live performances. If this even means donning wigs and full costume, then these Horsham-based bad boys are well on their way to achieving their goal. Forming in 1995, initially for a oneoff gig at The Bear pub in Horsham, Bad Boy Boogie were persuaded to become regular performers by their ever-expanding fan base. After more than 16 years of gigging in and around their home town, their live shows have progressed incredibly to incorporate as many highlights from AC/DC’s extensive back catalogue. Now veterans of the

flourishing Horsham live circuit, Bad Boy Boogie are branching further afield and continuing their domination of their audience’s ears. Each bringing their own ingredient to the band’s rock-solid formula, Fever-Leach’s guitar expertise and frantic on-stage performance is the ultimate reflection of DC lead axeman Angus Young, while Randon’s rhythmic contributions are spot-on. Scarry and Needham then provide the perfect rhythm line, originally provided by Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd, on drums and bass, before Davis puts the icing on the cake with his highly

impressive vocal work; impressive due to the fact that he can cover the vocals of both late frontman Bon Scott, and current screecher Brian Johnson. With a set list covering songs that span AC/DC’s massive discography, from the Scott-era classics such as ‘High Voltage’, ‘Highway To Hell’, ‘Let There Be Rock’, ‘Touch Too Much’ and ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’, or the Johnsonfronted gems like ‘Back In Black’, ‘Shoot To Thrill’, ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Train’, ‘Thunderstruck’ and ‘For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)’, Bad Boy Boogie are on the up and up.

December rather than July, and what you really want to do is head for home with the hope of something half decent in the fridge and a repeat of CSI on Five. What you really don’t need is to sit through a kids’ stage show… or so you think, because if that’s your attitude you’d have missed an absolute delight of an evening at Crawley’s Hawth on Monday. Ariel Drama Academy’s latest showcase set out to affirm the values that underpin the Ariel ethos - enhancement of confidence, self-esteem and enthusiasm in their performers, who are kids of all abilities and ages. The handbill tasks the audience to witness how learning in a positive environment, and a belief in creative team effort, can produce something rather special in terms of performance, and this the showcase achieved with great ease. What astounded me was the sheer number of kids on stage for many of the numbers. I’m aware that controlling youngsters can be like trying to nail jelly to a wall, so top marks to the team at Ariel for being able to martial the performances without any hint of a reduction in spontaneity or enthusiasm.

The overall variety ‘gave us a production that was spot on in terms of its balance ’

The showcase brought us vocal performances, humour and whimsy, dance and scripted vignettes worthy of much more mature performers, and the overall variety gave us a production that was spot on in terms of its balance. To consider specifics, particularly impressive is Ariel’s lack of fear of venturing into a slightly darker dramatic underbelly, and in particular, the pieces ‘Jerry And Tom’ (a darklycomic prelude to either a punishment beating or an execution) and ‘Slow Time’ (an emotive exploration of how social and domestic circumstances can drive the descent into despair, dependency and criminality) were exceptional. There were powerful group numbers such as ‘Journey to the Past’, where the girls’ vocals were most effective and poignant, and ‘Resistance’ which gives musical vent to the dark musings of Orwell in 1984. ‘Superstition’ was an acapella highlight, a reworking of the Stevie Wonder classic, which showed the vocal versatility of these kids and their ability to blend. In Memoriam was a haunting collective piece, reiterating the message of the futility of armed combat with WWI as the key example, a message we can never afford to forget. In stark contrast, the showcase gave us the perennial crowd pleaser ‘Canaan days’ from ‘Joseph’, and a soaring individual rendition of ‘Close Every

Door’, all the more haunting when performed by a youngster. What impressed me most, in an age where we foretell a future where humanity will ultimately lose its ability to speak due to a dependence on technology and the keyboard, is how well these kids can communicate, and for this Ariel deserves special credit. The Milligan poems, the extracts from ‘Alice in Wonderland’, the comic pieces ‘Miming Orchestra’ and ‘Olympics’ were a delight, showing that not only are the youngsters learning how to relate to one another and project their voices, but also, they are picking up some pretty deft comic timing too. For its sheer inclusivity, this Ariel showcase would deserve praise, and having everyone on stage for the final number ‘I will follow him’ was a joy as well as a feat of logistical wizardry. However, it must be added that everyone, no matter their level of ability, deserved to be on that stage for the individual contribution they made - and that is heart-warming. Congratulations as always to Ariel’s production team for the hard work they put in to make this a special Showcase, but also for giving these kids such life-defining experiences as part of the Ariel Drama Academy.

Harry’s ‘heart-warming’ finale Rachael Pratt


Harry Potter

Isn’t it odd to think that ten years ago the Harry Potter phenomenon had just begun? A decade later and the final instalment is here packed with action, emotion, and of course, magic. Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) and co are back for the last chapter, with the intention of saving the wizarding world from the one all wizards and muggles fear – Voldemort. As with any of the Potter films, don’t expect all to go to plan as the twists, turns and truths will have you on the edge of your seat. Like the seventh movie, (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1) there’s a lot of dark, gripping scenes due to the presence of Lord Voldemort and his followers; the

fight between the Boy Who Lived and He Who Must Not Be Named continues in a thrilling, eventful and moving end to the genius tale of Harry Potter, which has taken the world by storm. The film sums up every aspect of Harry’s lifetime at his wizarding school perfectly; transporting you back to the time when he was only a boy with a trip to Gringotts, The Forbidden Forest, Hogsmede and of course Hogwarts itself. The bleakness surrounding the three friends remains evident as the search for the Horcruxes continues, and the reality of the Deathly Hallows becomes more apparent. Mysteries slowly unravel from scene to scene, so prepare to be surprised, shocked and shaken by this emotional rollercoaster! Hogwarts isn’t the cheerful place we remember; with the music setting a troubled and grief-stricken mood

and a sense of sadness filling the castle, you wonder whether there would be any hope for the students of Hogwarts against evil Voldemort. However, it’s not all doom and gloom! Neville Longbottom never fails to break up the horror and mystery with his hilarious manner, and just because Death Eaters are threatening their world, why shouldn’t the film be comical too? McGonagall’s letting her hair down and Ron doesn’t stop being Ron - the film wouldn’t be right without laughter. Of course, this is Harry Potter we’re talking about, and you couldn’t expect anything less than a movie full of adventure and fantasy, with the trademark special effects that are truly mesmerising to see on the big screen, especially during battle scenes, as well as those convincingly produced dragons and trolls which

Property Fine homes in West Chiltington

West Chiltington is a village of delightful cottages, winding tree lined lanes and friendly shops and pubs. It is its unique charm that makes the village so special. West Chiltington was mentioned in the Doomsday Book with its beautiful little church, which stands centre stage in the midst of the village. In those days the village was sparsely populated and much of the development that has taken place has been since the 1930’s when Reginald Fairfax Wells built his now well renowned “Wells” cottages. These were designed and built for wealthy Londoners as weekend homes. Although the occasional Londoner heads this way for the weekend today, most of these homes have been enlarged and improved to create fine family homes. West Chiltington has now become a more densely populated area but still retains a semi-rural atmosphere with a village heart. Some fine houses currently on the market in West Chiltington include original “Wells” houses such as Little Trodgers in Westward Lane, which is a fine four bedroom detached property providing three bathrooms, with double garaging. It is set in a large plot with a beautiful southerly aspect in this quiet leafy lane.

Westward Lane

Larchill is situated in a single track lane in a third of an acre plot within the village. The property has been extended to provide a substantial double garage with office above, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and spacious reception rooms. Both of these homes offer seclusion and tranquillity. Also for sale in West Chiltington is The Roundabout Hotel, originally built in 1933 by Reginald Wells and is now on the market at £1,550,000. It currently comprises of twenty-five bedrooms. Sadly closed for over a year, the property offers an excellent commercial opportunity in an affluent location. Many of the properties in West Chiltington that have been built since the 1970’s such as Yeomans Cottage in Monkmead Lane, built approximately eleven years ago have been designed and constructed in keeping with the surrounding area. Yeomans Cottage has a beautiful thatched roof and timber and stone elevations together with all the convenience of modern living but with the style of a period home. A charming Grade II Listed period property known as Stile House built around 1500 would have perhaps been a home that Reginald Wells would have admired when arriving in West Chiltington all those years


ago. Originally thatch with eye brow window, the property now offers modernised and charming accommodation with inglenook fireplace and exposed timbering. It benefits from a detached annexe and double

garaging and is set in a garden that was re-designed a number of years ago by Anthony Archer Wills. It is a beautiful family home being offered for sale around £1million. Neil Moore, Managing Director of

Ask the Experts The Letting Agent

Kathy Taylor Senior Manager Leaders


I suspect that my rental property has been abandoned by my tenants as they haven’t been seen for weeks and have stopped paying their rent. What can I do in this situation? Am I able to go in and change the locks?

If a Tenant has appeared to have abandoned a Property the first step to take is to ascertain if this is actually the case and whether the property has indeed been abandoned. Considerations to make are that the Tenant may be staying with friends/family, be in hospital, in prison or on a long holiday and just not have advised you. It is the responsibility of either the Rental Agent or the Landlord of the property to prove that the Property has been abandoned and it is essential that all steps taken are clearly documented together with copies of all correspondence. Non payment of rent alone is not compelling evidence of abandonment. Clearly, with no contact from the Tenant permission for access will not be gained therefore a letter would need to be sent to the property advising them of a time and date that a visit will be taking place. At least 24 hours notice must be given from receipt of the letter and I would recommend that the letter is hand delivered. During this initial visit the things to check for are as follows; • Has the Tenant left any personal possessions in the Property? • Are there any perishables ie milk, food stuff in the fridge? • Is there any post for the Tenant at the Property or a redirection note? • If any neighbours are around ask if they have seen the Tenant recently.

If there is any doubt that the Property has been abandoned, legal action will be required to seek a Court Order for possession. If you decide to take possession despite this then you would be in breach of the Protection from Eviction Act 1977. If after the visit abandonment is still suspected another letter should be sent to the Tenant giving him 14 days to respond before any further steps are taken. Again, give a date and time of the visit and advise that any personal belongings will be removed and the locks changed. All items apart from perishables must be stored for two months from the date of removal. At the point of removal a notice should be put on the outside of the front door giving the Tenant contact details if he wishes to regain entry. It is important to be aware that failure to follow these steps may lead to prosecution under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977. This offence is punishable by a fine of up to £5000 or two years imprisonment. In addition the Tenant may bring Civil Proceedings against the Landlord seeking an injunction to allow him back into the Property, together with damages and substantial costs.

Expert help is at hand for property investors Managing a property portfolio can be profitable and rewarding. But many people underestimate the amount of work involved. There’s a lot to think about - from managing the letting agents, monitoring bank accounts and cash flow to checking that the relevant insurance is purchased. Thankfully, the investor doesn’t have to manage alone. Clockwork has been acting on behalf of property buyers around the world for more than six years, providing a trusted service to an exceptional standard. By liaising with lawyers, developers, buyers or tenants, Clockwork relieves property owners or investors of the workload involved in running their portfolios. Although Clockwork is based in the UK, it specialises in the overseas market, with Central and Eastern Europe being a particular area of expertise. Owner Helen Eade not only has a comprehensive list of contacts abroad, but is knowledgeable about other cultures and the necessary formalities and legislation. Helen said: “There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes when managing properties. I pride myself on taking the pressure off my clients, handling as much or as little of the process as they want. “People trust me implicitly to make decisions for them about tenancies, managing agents and much more, which is a testament to the high standard of service I like to provide.” Helen has developed a wealth of knowledge about the property investment sector, meaning clients can be sure their properties are in safe hands. Clockwork receives no referral fees or commissions for recommending services and suppliers to investors. All of which means the investor can be sure the team will always be on their side, acting with the best of intentions, professionally as well as ethically. Clockwork has recently launched confidential property investor surgeries. These provide a one-hour appointment, free of charge, and will give the property investor an opportunity to meet Helen and get valuable advice on any aspect of their investment. Speaking about the surgeries, Helen said: “There is no charge for the meeting, nor will there be any obligation to take up my services as a result of coming along. “The aim is simply to pass on some of the knowledge I have built up over many years in the business. Because I know how overwhelming and, at times, confusing it can be. I’m here to help!” For more information about Clockwork and the surgeries, contact Helen on 01403 788400 or visit

Electric charging stations unveiled in Storrington Olli Nott Motors Reporter

The first public electric vehicle charging stations in the Horsham District were unveiled at a launch on Thursday, July 14 in Storrington. Provided by Horsham District Council in partnership with West Sussex County Council, there are now two Elektrobay recharging stations

available to the public in Storrington and two in Horsham town. They are part of the 22 charging stations, produced by Brighton based Elektromotive, installed in 11 locations across West Sussex. The recharging stations in Storrington’s Library Car Park and Horsham’s North Street Car Park form part of an emerging national network of recharging infrastructure. Drivers of electric vehicles will receive a smart card when they join the Charge your Car network (www.

Cllr Andrew Baldwin, Cabinet member for the environment at Horsham District Council, trying out the new charger For the £50 annual membership, this smart card gives users access to any of the posts registered with the network across the county and beyond. The government is encouraging drivers to consider choosing more environmentally friendly vehicles. With no car tax to pay, electric cars offer zero tailpipe emissions and low cost refuelling. The cost of powering an electric car for 10,000 miles is around £200. In comparison, the cost of diesel for the same journey would cost over £1,500. The establishment of a recharging network across the district will alleviate ‘range anxiety’ and give electric vehicle owners the opportunity to top up their batteries when out and about. A move to more electric vehicles will see improved air quality in towns. A switch to zero tailpipe emissions vehicles will therefore be welcome in Storrington, which is experiencing air quality issues caused by the emissions from the large number of conventional vehicles passing through. Cllr Andrew Baldwin, Cabinet member for the environment at Horsham District Council, said: “Electric vehicles could be an attractive alternative for many residents. “Horsham District Council wants to support the creation of the public recharging infrastructure that is required to give motorists the confidence that they will not run out of power when out and about. “We hope the charging stations in our district will receive plenty of use.” The Elektrobay recharging posts are designed and manufactured in the UK by Elektromotive, the world’s leading provider of recharging solutions. Having installed over 600 Elektrobays across the UK, the firm is well on its way to developing a complete nationwide charging network to encourage the uptake of electric vehicles.

“A charging infrastructure is crucial to the uptake of electric vehicles on UK roads,” comments Calvey Taylor-Haw, managing director of Elektromotive. “We already have access to practical electric vehicles – for example the Nissan Leaf has all the comfort and convenience of a standard car and it looks like one too. So now we need to further develop the charging infrastructure. “A survey undertook in June 2011 revealed that 66 percent of drivers would drive an electric vehicles if they had access to charging stations. Hopefully the latest Elektrobay installations will encourage motorists in Horsham and Storrington to embrace zero emissions motoring and as a result improve the surrounding environment,” adds Taylor-Haw. Celebrating the launch of the new Charging Stations, Horsham District Council is giving away a ‘Charge Your

Lifestyle offers new Ford Accident Management service Car accidents can be stressful and time-consuming. To help you get your car repaired and back on the road as quickly as possible, Lifestyle Europe is taking part in Ford’s new, dedicated Accident Management Scheme. The scheme, launched on Monday, July 4, focuses on giving owners of both new and used Ford vehicles a complete accident management service, dedicated to getting their vehicle repaired at a manufacturerapproved repair centre. This ensures that their vehicle is repaired by manufacturer-trained staff, using genuine Ford parts and manufacturer-approved equipment, guaranteeing quality workmanship. The best part is, it’s completely free for all Ford customers. Brian Heasman, Lifestyle Europe’s bodyshop manager, said: “We aim to always put our customers first, and many find it hard to believe that the scheme is provided free of charge. We take away all the hassle from the customer, sorting it out on their behalf, providing temporary vehicles and corresponding with the various insurance companies.” Paul McDermott, manager of collision repair marketing, Ford of Britain, added: “We are delighted that Lifestyle Europe is working so closely

with us to look after our joint customers.” For the Horsham region, this means a referral directly to the Bishopric-based Horsham Lifestyle Ford repairs centre. This provides a more personal service for the customer, as you deal directly with those who are in charge of getting your vehicle back out on the road again. And wherever you are based within Sussex, the repairs team will come and assess, collect and then deliver your vehicle without the need for you to travel at all. This service takes away the endless calls needed to notify and arrange repairs. There is no need to worry about the hassle of speaking to your insurance company either, as Ford does all this on your behalf, regardless of your insurance company. With Lifestyle being such a big presence in Horsham, the scheme will undoubtedly benefit local Ford customers, helping them speedily get back onto the road, with all the stressful bits removed from their ‘todo’ lists. The accident management scheme essentially works as the middle-man, communicating with the insurance companies involved on the user’s behalf, and if applicable, will supply a courtesy car to keep you on the road.

The scheme also ensures that neither Ford, nor its partners, will make any money from personal injury referral fees, which are one of the main problems contributing to rising insurance premiums. For those not at fault, the scheme will also ensure that there will be no excess to pay, and no increased premiums or complicated claims process. All you have to do is phone the central Ford number, and they’ll direct your situation to your nearest Lifestyle repairs team. Once referred, the Lifestyle team will follow Ford protocols for claims and repairs. For Lifestyle Europe, this sort of scheme is not unfamiliar. The company already has its own Accident Management Scheme in place, running across each of their other retailing brands, helping their Renault, Mazda and Subaru customers’ claims processes simpler. To get in touch with Ford Accident Management, call 0800 587 3673. You can also download their smartphone application at - giving you a direct link to the Ford programme. For Renault, Mazda and Subaru, please contact Lifestyle Europe’s Accident Management department on 0845 1949 243. Or for more information, visit

Henfield’s role in stadium stunner Matthew James Sport Editor

Few fans will have earned it quite as much as Paul Samrah when Brighton and Hove Albion play their first league match in their new stadium. The chartered accountant from Henfield was crucial in unearthing the previous board’s shenanigans in selling the old Goldstone Ground in questionable circumstances. And after fighting as hard as any Albion fan to oust the old board, he turned his hand to a decade of positive campaigning – most recently as the eloquent chairman of the supporters’ Falmer for All campaign. In July 1995 The Argus newspaper revealed Albion were selling the Goldstone and planning to groundshare 50 miles away at Portsmouth – news which club owner Bill Archer admitted had “broken rather prematurely”. Research by Samrah at Companies House in London revealed Archer’s controlling shareholding had cost £56.25 while co-owner Greg Stanley’s share was £43.75 – a total of £100 in a holding company. Samrah also uncovered a change in the rules governing shareholders if the club folded. Albion’s articles of association had long guaranteed that any surplus funds would be distributed to another local club or charity, but the “noprofit” clause had been omitted from new rules in November 1993. The clause was eventually reinstated, but the atmosphere around the Goldstone between 1995 and 1997 reflected an explosive cocktail of anger, desperation and contempt towards Archer, Stanley and chief executive David Bellotti. Developers Chartwell offered a year-long leaseback of the Goldstone for £480,000, but supporters were left at breaking point when Albion initially offered only £200,000. Sixteen minutes into the final home match of the 1995-96 season, supporters pulled down both sets of goalposts, destroyed advertising boards and tried to storm the tunnel. The match was abandoned, causing national and international publicity. Five minutes before Chartwell’s deadline – high noon on April 30 – Albion signed legal papers to stay at the Goldstone for another season. But the board stayed for another year so the protests continued, with boycotts, walkouts, marches, petitions and a memorable Fans United match at the Goldstone when supporters from across the country and beyond demonstrated their disgust. Samrah was banned from the ground for a time, for allegedly acting as a ringleader in non-violent protests, before under-pressure Archer agreed to allow him back during ownership mediation talks arranged by the Football Association. By the time Dick Knight eventually succeeded Archer as chairman, the

club was committed to groundsharing even further away at Gillingham, a round-trip of 150 miles from Brighton and Hove. More than 32,000 people signed a petition in favour of a “temporary” move to Withdean, which councillors approved by ten votes to two, and the first match was played there 12 years ago.

The club has been ‘homeless since the week you became Chancellor ’

Almost 45,000 people – 68 per cent of those who voted – backed the idea of a stadium at Falmer when the council held a city-wide referendum in May 1999. Delays largely caused by negotiations with the universities of Brighton and Sussex over land, contract conditions and car parking meant the Falmer plans only went before councillors in June 2002. This time the pro-stadium petition contained more than 61,000 signatures, comfortably breaking all local records, and councillors voted 11-1 in favour. But neighbouring Lewes District Council, Falmer Parish Council and some environmental groups

continued to fight the scheme in what became the longest planning battle in British football history. A public inquiry was held between February and October 2003 before Samrah and other Albion fans, including Des Lynam and Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim), delivered thousands of pro-stadium letters to 10 Downing Street. But fans were stunned when Charles Hoile, one of two inquiry inspectors, concluded Falmer was too small and too near the South Downs for a stadium. His report sparked further concentrated campaigning from February to May, with Samrah at the forefront of many ideas and closely involved in their implementation. The public inquiry was reopened and a technical error by John Prescott caused yet another delay in the painfully slow process. At one point, Samrah and fan Tim Carder handed campaign propaganda to Prime Minister Tony Blair and wife Cherie as they arrived for a union function at the Royal Albion Hotel. And to loud cheers from the audience, Samrah questioned Gordon Brown at The Dome, Brighton, during the Prime Minister-in-waiting’s leadership campaign. He asked: “Are you aware that the city’s football club has been homeless since the very week you became

Chancellor? As you will understand more than anyone, that is a very long time! “A sensible ‘yes’ decision from Ruth Kelly in early July would welcome the Gordon Brown era with an instantly positive legacy for the people of Sussex.” Brown said he was aware of the situation and looked forward to returning to Brighton after the decision, which was eventually made by Hazel Blears after a government reshuffle. The extraordinary efforts of Samrah and Carder in particular may never be fully appreciated. But their campaigning flair and effort has finally been rewarded in the shape of the spectacular 22,500seat American Express Community Stadium, largely funded by chairman Tony Bloom. The opening first-team match there, a friendly against Tottenham Hotspur, will take place tomorrow week, July 30, with the long-awaited league opener against Doncaster Rovers a week later. Samrah had the honour of announcing the first scorer at The Amex, Gary Hart for the reserves last weekend, in his role as a public address announcer for the club. Few would begrudge the Henfield chartered accountant many more historic moments at the stunning stadium he did so much to help turn from dream into reality.

Brighton and Hove Albion Reserves beat Eastbourne Borough to win the Sussex Senior Cup in the first game at the American Express Community Stadium, Falmer. This wasn’t my first visit to The Amex – I had visited to choose my seat and attended a familiarisation event there – but it was the first time anyone had seen the stadium come to life. With torrential rain, the day hadn’t started well. Had the match been at Withdean, I might have had second thoughts about going, but with a roof to keep me dry there was no need for a plastic poncho. Fantastic! I set off early and got to the ground at about 1.30pm as I wanted time to take it all in. My first stop was the club shop, already packed by the time I arrived. I had a quick look around and left empty-handed as there will be plenty of time to buy the new home shirt. Next it was off to the North Stand turnstiles. The barcode reader read my ticket and I was in. Under the North Stand, as in all the stands, is a large open concourse for fans to mingle and chat. Large flat-screen TVs are everywhere, as are photos of Albion legends. I headed to the bar and after a short wait was drinking a pint of my favourite beer while talking to some mates. Our only topic of conversation was the ground. How fantastic it is, how well built it is, how well appointed it is. How it’s ours. As kick off approached we made our way to our seats. That first view of the ground as we entered the stands was wonderful. The massive West Stand, which will seat almost 12,000 come the season proper, was something to behold. The pitch was green and lush, with not a blade of grass out of place. We found our seats – padded seats with loads of leg room, not the hard, plastic ones we were used to at Withdean. Luxury. The game kicked off and Albion chairman Tony Bloom must have had tears in his eyes. I know I did. After Gary Hart scored the first goal at The Amex, the large TV screens at each end of the ground pictured Bloom and Albion life president Dick Knight. The fans responded by singing their names. A dream came true on Saturday, for me and many thousands more.

Kieran Vernon took time out from his busy schedule to help make the weekend for these lucky youngsters. FrenchFest organisers invited the rising star from West Chiltington to display his Formula Renault BARC car in Piries Place – and the personable 21-year-old was more than happy to oblige. The young and young at heart were pictured with the former Steyning Grammar School pupil and even took the chance to sit in his car. He is backed by West Chiltington Golf Club and The Resident, who feature on the car and his race suit, and also thanks B52’s for allowing him to shelter the car from the rain. Vernon, who also competes in the Porsche Carrera Cup, will bid to strengthen his title hopes when he drives the Renault at Croft, North Yorkshire, this weekend. He is third in the championship standings, only two points behind Archie Hamilton (Hook), and will be looking to at least close the gap on Fortec Motorsport team-mate Josh Webster (Stowmarket).

It’s advantage Millais Laura Harding Millais School Youth Tennis

Millais School’s Sophie Jones and Mary Southgate won the U15 Sussex Shield doubles in Eastbourne by winning all four of their matches. Mary said: “I’m very pleased that we won. It’s a great achievement for us and for Millais School.” It was also a proud moment for Zoe Froud, school tennis coach and PE teacher, who won the same trophy while at school. She said: “Mary and Sophie are exceptional athletes and are a pleasure to watch. “Not only do they demonstrate high levels of skill, control and finesse, they also conduct themselves in such a professional manner and should be commended on the level of sportsmanship they demonstrate at all fixtures.

“It is a very impressive piece of silverware the girls have brought back to Millais and something they should be very proud of.” The pair beat school friends Becky Wilkinson and Isabella Harding, who won the Sussex Cup in a memorable season for Millais.

At just 16 years old, Farlington School’s Rebecca Clarke is preparing for her third national competition. Rebecca started sailing when she was six, as both her father and grandfather sailed, and has been sailing independently in her own boat for eight years. She trains weekly at a variety of locations, depending on where competitions are being held, but her home club is Papercourt Sailing Club in Ripley, near Woking. In the past Rebecca has won the South East Championships and in the 2010 Topper Nationals she came 18th in the silver fleet.

This is even more impressive when you consider that she sailed against many people much older than herself, so she has already sailed alongside some of the best in the country. This year Rebecca will participate in about 20 races in the Laser Nationals at Weymouth, one of the venues for the 2012 Olympic Games. Rebecca is sailing a Topper but will shortly move on to the Laser Radial, a more powerful yacht. She wants to feel comfortable and be fit enough as it is a much faster and more demanding boat. She said: “In the future I’d love the opportunity to race against other women who are of Olympic standard.” Rebecca is a talented, aspiring, young sailor and it is almost certain that we will see more from her in future.

Sport in Brief Cricket Southwater (182-3) beat Wisborough Green (129-9) by 53 runs in the Mirfield Cup Final at Horsham. Green were unable to contain belligerent batting by Danny Humphreys (80) and Johann Brouwer (60) before cameos by David Pleasants (38) and Matt Travena (30) were blunted by excellent Southwater fielding. Brouwer rounded off his memorable evening with 3-31. In the group stages of the Gullick Cup, Novartis and West Sussex Antique Timber of Wisborough Green knocked out defending champions Kings Arms Billingshurst, Heath Lambert of Horsham and Crabtree Cavaliers of Lower Beeding to qualify for the semi-finals. Cherry Tree Inn of Faygate and Feeder Cricks from Christ’s Hospital made it through from the other group. Nuthurst beat the President’s XI by two wickets, with Bob Samways making 54 and Scott Barron 43 not out. The Nutters (228-3) went on to beat Clive Vale, Bexhill (227-5), by seven wickets. Raggi Singh was stranded on 99 not out after putting on 188 with Samways (91). All matches in the Sussex Premier League on Saturday were postponed. Another casualty was Roffey’s National Knockout Cup match at home to Cambridge Granta on Sunday, which has been rearranged for this Sunday (1pm).

Youth Cricket Horsham U11 beat Roffey U12 by 26 runs to win the U12 North West Division of the IDentilam Colts League, qualifying for the play-off finals against the North East and South winners. Horsham U11 made 87-7 in their 20 overs, John Gray top scoring with 21. Jordan Bell took 2-23 and Joel Colbran 1-11 in four very tight overs. Despite 16 from Colbran and 19 from Jack Sizzey-Carter, Roffey U12 lost wickets steadily and were bowled out for 61. Gray claimed 3-15 and Ishaan Shetty 2-21. Roffey U10 maintained their 100 per cent record with an 85-run win against Cranleigh St Andrews U10. Max McAteer made an unbeaten 27.

Youth Football Horsham Sparrows Girls U11 finished runners-up in the Abbey Rangers tournament, beaten on penalties after a tremendous 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. Squad: Hannah Gardner, Fiona McMartin, Emily Budinger, Kathryn Otley, Felicity Love, Alexandra Malzer, Jazmine Younger, Amy Henson and Bronwen Thomas.

Motor Sport Southwater’s Jolyon Palmer is hoping Germany’s Nürburgring will yield his maiden GP2 points finish this weekend.

A progressive, vibrant village club

Sport in Brief

Martin Read Cricket

West Chiltington Cricket Club was founded in 1921 and amalgamated with Thakeham 11 years ago. The ground is in Mill Road, in the heart of West Chiltington, next to the village hall and just across from the windmill. Surrounded by gardens and fields with many fine trees, and a passing stream, it is a very popular venue with the home team and visiting sides. It is no surprise that the club has been a prized fixture for touring clubs down the years. In recent years there has been major progress at the club. Significantly the junior section is thriving, with 150 local children registered. Support from senior members and parents is excellent, the club having 12 qualified coaches.  The U10 team has just qualified for August’s finals day in the MKK competition at Hove. Sport England’s Clubmark accreditation has been secured, along with England and Wales Cricket Board Focus Club status. These major accolades recognise the quality of the club’s colts coaching and welfare programmes and facilitate applications for funding for improvement initiatives, including new outdoor nets. Although the traditional pavilion has been extended and refurbished,

there are embryonic plans for a replacement. The club’s committee are constantly looking for ways to make it a better place to play cricket and, being an excellent asset for the village, for social activities too.

We provide the ‘opportunity for people in the local community to play at their appropriate level

On Saturdays the first and second  teams play in the Sussex Invitation League and there are friendly matches on Sundays. Indoor and outdoor coaching is arranged for colts from U9 to 16-yearolds, with a total of over 50 matches at the various junior levels and a Winter indoor league. It is always the sign of a good club when senior players stay on and contribute towards the continuing development projects. West Chiltington

and Thakeham are particularly well blessed in that regard. Peter Jones, president, junior coach and member for over 50 years, said: “The club thrives through hard work.” Brian Jeffries, colts chairman and club coach, has been instrumental in setting up and managing the junior section. He said: “It is a very progressive, vibrant village club.” Not too long ago, the side was ageing, but the development plan and youth policy has transformed the membership. And head groundsman Jim Gee, who doubles as the bar manager, has developed the cricket square to be the envy of many clubs. Chairman Neil Miller says the club is special “because we actively provide the opportunity for people in the local community to play cricket at their appropriate level, encouraging everyone, whatever their ability”. He also promotes the OneClub  ethos, maintaining the closest possible bond between the junior and senior sections. Social secretary Steve Hodgson organises a range of events, including barbecues, the recent Midsummer

Madness hog roast accompanied by a live band, Christmas celebrations and the ever-popular annual dinner, past speakers having included former England captain Mike Gatting. The club’s recent cricket week began with a match against Nazeing Common and was a great success, on and off the field, rounded off with the President’s game. An international cricket day is being organised for the August Bank Holiday. Former chairman David Hardisty is credited with putting in a tremendous amount of hard work to create today’s successful club, which he describes as “friendly and welcoming – and in a wonderful location”. West Chiltington and Thakeham CC should certainly be proud of its achievements, impressive by any standards, but doubly so for a small village club. The club is rightly ambitious, in a determined but friendly way.  They are confident of promotion in the league this season, after which they will strive to move up the Sussex cricket pyramid. With its leafy lanes and ancient church, picturesque cottages and well-tended gardens, West Chiltington is a charming village. With such a pleasant ground and professional approach to the administration and development of the cricket club, nobody could begrudge West Chiltington and Thakeham the chance to move up the league ladder when the opportunity beckons. For more information, visit www.

Golf Annette Walsh and Daria Blaze, of Cottesmore Golf and Country Club Ladies, have qualified for the area final of the Peugeot LGU Coronation Foursomes. They will compete at Mid Kent Golf Club on August 2. Jenny Frei and Tony Cockerall have qualified for the regional finals of the Bader Cup at Piltdown. Ladies’ captain Mary Grange said: “With a relatively small ladies’ section, the club has done very well externally against much bigger clubs. Our challenging course has helped us in away games. We are gaining a reputation as tough competitors.” Sam Hayward played consistently accurate golf to win the Ifield Golf Club Championship by five shots over two rounds. He is pictured with club captain Richard Cowlard and other winners Ian Burgess (Ifield Cup) and Ade Verbeeten (John Holder Trophy).

Football Horsham manager Justin Luchford says the club’s youth players will be given a chance, but not all at the same time. He said: “If you’re good enough, you’re old enough. However, they’ve got to be mentally prepared to look after themselves. If he’s 15 and he’s good enough, he will play as long as he’s right in here (pointing to his head). “What I’m not prepared to do is promote a youth team player and ‘kill him’, but I will promote a youth team player if the time is right. “Once we get the squad settled, they will all be training together on a Thursday night. The first team will know their names.” Hornets coach Hugo Langton, who runs a football academy, said: “We believe that youth players are the future of the club. If there are players we believe are good enough, they will play.” /sport
