    Trekkers raise £77,000 for St Barnabas House by climbing to Laka Got in the Himalayas

    A team of 42 trekkers from across the local area raised in excess of £77,000 by taking on the Dalai Lama India Trek for St Barnabas House last week.

    Participants set off on the epic journey on Thursday 18 October, flying from Heathrow to Delhi. They then travelled on an overnight sleeper train to Pathankot, continuing by coach to Dharamshala, the spiritual home of the Dalai Lama.

    On Sunday 21 October the team set off, and on the first day they witnessed an Indian funeral (an incredible outpouring of emotion) crossed a rickety suspension bridge and tackled a mud slide which had destroyed part of the route.

    Monday saw the team trek from near Kareri to Bal village, a walk with amazing views of the Dhauladhar mountain range early in the day, a river crossing after lunch and a tough incline towards the end of the day.

    On Tuesday 23 October the team continued their ascent to Triund, a campsite which stands at 2,995 metres above sea level and has some truly spectacular views of the snow-capped Dhauladhar mountain range and the valleys below.

    The fourth day of trekking saw the team reach the highest point of their journey, Laka Got at 3,500 metres above sea level. Here the team were invited to hang prayer flags in memory or honour of loved ones cared for by St Barnabas House.

    It was an extremely emotional day with some trekkers really struggling, but they were spurred on by the reward of reaching the top. A couple of the team scattered the ashes of loved ones at the highest point.

    The final day of trekking consisted of a steep descent to Bhagsu Nag. In the evening the team enjoyed a celebratory meal in Dharamshala before making the long journey back to Delhi and onto Agra to conclude the trip with a visit to the Taj Mahal.

    The team have all been fundraising for Worthing-based hospice St Barnabas House, and between them they have raised in excess of £77,000.

    Event Manager Kerry Foy said: “I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone involved in the trek, including Global Adventure Challenges for organising the trek and all of the guides and Sherpas who helped us along the way.

    “It was a once in a lifetime experience, an opportunity to remember loved ones, and everyone made some great news friends along the way.

    “The money raised through sponsorship will help St Barnabas House to provide care for local people with more complex clinical needs, including those with heart, liver, kidney and respiratory conditions.”

    Gail Chandler brings husband Clive with her to Laka Got

    Yoga instructor Gail Chandler, 61, from Storrington decided to take on the trek with her friend, 76-year-old Carole Pickworth, in memory of her husband Clive Mitchell.

    Gail married Clive at St Barnabas House in 2013 after he proposed to her just weeks before he died at the age of 52.

    “St Barnabas are the most caring, loving people I’ve ever met,” she said. “The way they helped Clive and I, and the rest of the family. It has been beyond anything I have ever come across before; the care and the love.”

    Gail’s daughter, Jemma, is also currently battling cancer, and she added: “I’m also trekking for my daughter (Jemma). They (St Barnabas House) have been so helpful with my daughter. After Clive died the counselling was very, very helpful.

    “Clive is actually in my bag. I’ve got him in spirit and I’ve got a bit of him in my bag that I’m taking up to the top. I take a little bit of him whenever I go on a journey and I sprinkle him in waterfalls and lots of beautiful places because he loved to travel.”

    Sarah Tuhey treks in memory of her “adventurer” Uncle Mike

    Sarah Tuhey, 26, who lives in Brighton and is originally from Storrington, was doing the Dalai Lama India Trek in memory of her uncle, Mike Buck.

    Sarah said: “My Uncle Mike was cared for by St Barnabas on their In-patient Unit at the end of November 2015. He was a big adventurer and he absolutely loved to travel and just anything really that was a bit extraordinary.

    “I thought he’d be really excited about me coming out here and doing this trek, so I’ve just been trying to do my best and hopefully make him proud.”

    “I was really anxious coming out here because I came on my own and I didn’t really know what to expect – it’s the first time I’ve done anything like this. I’ve absolutely loved every second of it, even the challenges.”

    Tracey Shaughnessy inspired by the care provided to her stepfather

    Tracey Shaughnessy from Worthing was participating in the Dalai Lama India Trek in memory of her stepfather, Richard Sampey.

    Tracey said: “My wonderful stepfather visited the Day Hospice – for seven months he had COPD – and that completely changed his life. The counselling that they gave him was amazing. We’ve had some incredible support from the whole of the staff at St Barnabas, including the Bereavement Team.

    “He actually came out to India three times and loved the country. The day after he died the hospice’s Life magazine came out and Richard was featured on the front. Three pages in was ‘Come and join us on the Dalai Lama India Trek’ and I thought it was meant to be.”

    On day three of the trek, Tracey said: “We’ve had to deal with landslides on the first day which was pretty heart in mouth and yesterday we climbed the sheer side of a mountain and didn’t really think about it.

    “I’d like to thank everybody involved in the trek, the Sherpas, Terri and Craig (from Global Adventure Challenges) and all of the staff at St Barnabas supporting us.”

    Sandra Grant shares her experience of day one of the trek

    Sandra Grant from Worthing decided to do the Dalai Lama India Trek in memory of her mum, Joan Cox.

    She said: “I’m walking in the Himalayas on the Dalai Lama India Trek for St Barnabas in memory of my mum, Joan Cox, who died in December 2016.”

    Talking on day one of the trek, she added: “We’re towards the end of day one and we have just walked across a landslide! It was interesting, challenging and very, very scary at times but absolutely exhilarating.”

    Sue Reed treks in memory of her husband Trevor

    Sue Reed from Worthing decided to take on the Dalai Lama India Trek with her friend Carly Rogers in memory of her husband, Trevor.

    She said: “I’m doing it for my husband because he passed away six years ago with pancreatic cancer and St Barnabas was such an amazing help for him and me.

    “He never went into St B’s, but we had the Hospice at Home Team come to us and they were amazing.

    “It’s been amazing; really tough, really emotional, but what a five days it has been. I just can’t believe how far we’ve walked up these mountains. It’s been incredible. The views, the atmosphere, the camaraderie of everybody, has just been great.”

    Caroline Smith decides now is the time to give something back

    Caroline Smith, 27, from Goring-by-Sea was doing the trek in memory of her friend, Alun Bowen, who was cared for by the hospice in June 2017.

    “I worked for St Barnabas for three years so I know how amazing they are and the great work they do in the community,” she said.

    “A friend of mine actually passed away last year and he was only 24 and he stayed at St Barnabas House. They treated him and his family really well so I thought now is the time to give something back.”

    Fiona Walsh treks in honour of her friend Debbie Darling-Duckels

    Fiona Walsh from Brighton was took on the challenge in honour of her friend, Debbie Darling-Duckells, who has received care from the St Barnabas House Day Hospice.

     “I was inspired to take part in this challenge by the support the Day Hospice gave to my wonderful friend Debbie Darling-Duckells,” she said.

    “It was physically much more demanding than any of us thought and emotionally exhilarating – truly an awesome experience.

    “We trekked along narrow ledges, traversed a fast flowing river, negotiated a landslide, climbed steep gradients, crossed high suspension bridges, coped with rocking rocks, shale, snow, and hot sunshine – extremes.

    “Thank you to so many of my friends who have sponsored and supported me with their help in running events, lending gardens and houses, hosting, performing, baking cakes, so much. My grand total currently stands at £6,494.42.”

    Great Wall of China Trek

    St Barnabas House has just opened registration for its next overseas trek, the ‘Great Wall of China Trek’, which takes place in October 2020.

    For more information about the trek please visit www.stbh.org.uk/china or contact the Events Team by emailing events@stbh.org.uk or calling 01903 706354.

    Worthing Council makes town centre investment pledge

    Plans to invest in Worthing town centre car parking to ensure retail, leisure and businesses can continue to thrive have been revealed.

    With new homes, jobs, retail and high quality public spaces all in the pipeline, Worthing Borough Council has drawn up proposals to ensure it continues to meet demand from motorists.

    Central to the plan being presented to councillors next week (Tuesday November 6) is a commitment to continue a programme of major investment in existing car parks, such as Buckingham Road and High Street.

    Longer-term, to ensure there continues to be sufficient town centre spaces after the planned demolishing of the outdated Grafton multi-storey, it suggests upgraded facilities could be provided at the Civic Centre and Lyndhurst Road.

    The proposal also recommends the strategy is closely integrated with ongoing work to promote other more sustainable forms of transport, such as walking and cycling, and encourage modal shift away from single occupancy car journeys.

    Councillor Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “Worthing is a town going through real transformation due to a combination of major regeneration projects and changing trends. It’s important we embrace this while ensuring our town centre remains open for business.

    “This proposed strategy shows that we are serious about investing to create high-quality multi-storeys in our town. It will also ensure a good level of parking across the town as new car parks are created and other sites, such as Grafton, regenerated.

    “Along with this car parking strategy, we also remain committed to supporting other modes of transport which will help our residents live longer and healthier lives.”

    A report presented to Adur & Worthing Councils’ Joint Strategic Committee next week (Tuesday, November 6) notes that there are about 1,800 council-owned public parking spaces in Worthing.

    The majority of these (1,300) are in three multi-storeys - Buckingham Road, High Street and Grafton - which require ongoing annual investment of more than £100,000 to keep them operational in the short-term.

    To improve the quality and keep these multi-storeys operational long term, the Council has already earmarked a further £2.7 million to invest in these facilities.

    But, with Grafton requiring an estimated £7 million to £10 million to keep it operational long-term, the report to councillors recommends closing and demolishing the seafront multi-storey by 2023 so that the site can be redeveloped.

    To ensure that the number of town centre parking spaces remains sufficient, the car parking strategy suggests developing two new public decked car parks at Lyndhurst Road and at the Civic Centre as part of the proposed new health hub.

    Longer-term the report recommends spending an additional £1.5 million on a “high quality refurbishment” of Buckingham Road, with similar plans for High Street also suggested.

    ‘Platinum’ Accountancy Firm recruits 11 new trainees over the last 12 months

    MHA Carpenter Box has appointed 11 new trainees over the past year to join their Audit and Business Services teams in both their Worthing and Gatwick offices. They will be joining either the firm’s Platinum Accredited programme on the road to the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification or studying for the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ACA) qualification.

    The Audit team in Worthing welcomes Emma Sparrow from the University of Sussex, Will Sixsmith from Aberystwyth University and Rachel Cook from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Dean Downes-Avery, Tabitha Nicholls and Michael Davis all from Worthing College, Daniel White from The Littlehampton Academy Sixth Form and Chloe Rempel from Chichester College have all joined the Worthing Business Services team.

    In Gatwick, the Business Services team has welcomed Ben Roberts from Lancaster University, whilst the Audit team has been joined by Thagendra Bura from the University of Kent and Jack Gamon who was an estate agent for two years prior to joining MHA Carpenter Box.

    MHA Carpenter Box Managing Partner, Alan Edwards, welcomed the new trainees on board, commenting: “Training the next generation of accountants, tax and business advisers is a responsibility we take very seriously and we have always invested heavily in emerging talent.

    “We aim to give our students the best possible start to their careers which has been underlined by our accreditation as a Platinum employer, ACCA’s highest global standard of excellence.

    “I wish all our new trainees every success in their accountancy careers over the coming years.”

    The new trainees will undertake a comprehensive in-house training programme at MHA Carpenter Box working with a team of qualified and experienced accountants, business advisers and auditors – many of whom started their careers at MHA Carpenter Box as trainees themselves! They will also benefit from knowledge sharing across MHA, the firm’s national association and Baker Tilly International, its global network.

    New Director of Estate Planning Appointed at MHA Carpenter Box

    To lead and support its new Estate Planning Service offering, MHA Carpenter Box has appointed Phil Atherton to the new position of Director of Estate Planning in the firm’s Tax Services Group.

    Starting December, the Sussex and Gatwick-based firm of chartered accountants, tax and business advisers will be delivering a series of Estate Planning seminars which will offer tax, wealth management and legal advice from regulated professionals.

    Phil has vast experience in tax and estate planning spanning 37 years and is the ideal candidate to push forward the new initiative for MHA Carpenter Box. He started in practice and worked in London for almost 20 years, finally working for the London office of one of the ‘top six’ accountancy practices. He then moved south and in more recent years, ran his own Tax and Estate Planning practice with 14 employees.

    Phil will be based at MHA Carpenter Box’s Worthing office and his new role will involve meeting with families and individuals to discuss estate planning and how they can best protect their wealth and assets for their loved ones. This could include reviewing Wills, Trusts, Inheritance Tax profiling and Powers of Attorney, amongst a whole range of other considerations. 

    Phil commented: “I was particularly attracted to MHA Carpenter Box as it has a very good reputation in the industry and a wide range of quality clients. I am looking forward to supporting the firm on its continuing strategy of providing a one stop wealth management service helping new and existing clients to take control of their own financial affairs.”

    Phil lives in Rustington and is married with three grown-up children. Outside of work he is a keen golfer, enjoys listening to and playing music and is a member of a local church.

    Unveiled: bright new adventure park vision for Brooklands

    A £2 million masterplan for the complete revival of Worthing’s Brooklands Park has been revealed.

    Working with leading environment-shaping company Chris Blandford Associates, Worthing Borough Council’s proposal is to create a new Science Adventure Park with the emphasis on learning through fun, play and exploration.

    With the lake freshly revived after nine months hard work, the next stage is to move towards a coherent feel for the entire area.

    The vision has been developed after input from more than 800 residents. The Friends of Brooklands Park have also been actively engaged in the process.

    Key features and benefits of the regeneration will include a new cafe and lakeside picnicking area at the heart of the park along with improved walks and fitness trails, areas for outdoor events and community activities, community gardens and an adventure play area.

    An indoor leisure activity centre in the south west corner of the park is also outlined to ensure it remains an attractive destination all year round.

    Cllr Edward Crouch, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Digital and Environmental Services, said: “These plans have yet to be put before the Council for detailed discussion but we wanted the public to see what was in mind.

    “I think the masterplan is really very exciting. It makes Brooklands a fantastic green space for families to enjoy.

    “The lake is sparkling after our restoration so this is the next exciting step. It proves our commitment to preserving and indeed enhancing our green spaces as well as encouraging inward investment and new visitors to our town.”

    The council, working closely with Chris Blandford Associates, has used the public consultation held earlier this year as a basis for the masterplan. It has worked hard to incorporate as many of views as possible into the proposal.

    Plans also include an adventure playground, community gardens, outdoor education and den building area, enhanced planting of shrubs and flowers and pond life exploration. An iconic vertical feature, such as a sculpture or wind turbine, has also been suggested.

    Work is still to be done to fund the entire list of features. Sponsorship is to be sought from private businesses for some aspects, particularly technology companies given the science-based nature of the proposal.

    Increased car parking spaces and coach drop off areas are envisaged as the Council seeks to make Brooklands a destination attraction once again as well as a green space local residents can be proud of.

    Better links from the park to the seafront so that people can easily travel between the two are also proposed.

    In a statement Chris Blandford Associates says the park aims to provide ‘stimulation of the senses for people of all ages and abilities through hands-on play and exploration including sensory play equipment, acoustic play and temporary installations which can link to the wider health and well-being agenda’.

    The development of the park will take place in stages. Work could start next year with the timescale for possible completion depending on the success of attracting funds for some of the individual elements.

    Anyone who wants to comment on the masterplan or the general future of the park is asked to contact Brooklands@adur-worthing.gov.uk.

    Greater Brighton businesses urged to have their say on the future of our water

    Businesses are being asked for their views on how best to tackle 'water stress' in the Greater Brighton region.

    Population growth, new housing and climate change are among a range of challenges that need to be addressed to make sure there is still enough water for all in the future, as well as prevent flooding and protect and improve the environment.

    The Greater Brighton region, an economic and inward investment area stretching from Crawley to the coast and Worthing across to Newhaven, has established an Infrastructure Panel to look at sustainable water and energy for the future.

    As part of its work to deliver a dedicated Greater Brighton water plan, the Panel has launched an online survey to capture the business community's feedback on this key strategic issue. The research will also include the opportunity for organisations to volunteer to take part in a more in-depth discussion.

    Among the questions to asked will be the following:

    ·         How important is water to your business?

    ·         How would your business be affected by a lack of water supply, lack of wastewater disposal capacity, flooding and bills becoming more expensive?

    ·         How important a factor is water to your business, compared to issues like energy, telecommunications, transport and recruitment?

    The answers from the survey will feed into the Panel's discussions, with a report back to the Greater Brighton Economic Board on recommended next steps due next year.

    Representatives from companies such as Ricardo and IBM, the Universities of Sussex and Brighton, local authorities and bodies like the Environment Agency, South East Water and UK Power Networks have joined the Greater Brighton Panel under the chairmanship of Southern Water Chief Executive, Ian McAulay.

    Ian said: "We need to make sure we build a resilient future for water and energy to allow us to continue grow the economy locally. To do that, it is vital we start to plan around some of the issues which will arise and that is why it is important to have businesses and the wider public engaged in this issue.

    “Answers from local firms, of all sizes, will give us a richer picture of where our priorities should be. So I would urge everyone to spend a just few minutes to give us their views.”

    The Greater Brighton Water Plan business survey can be found by clicking here. The survey is open until Monday 5 November 2018.

    Building AW: Brooklands Park can become a “regional destination”

    Brooklands Park has the potential to become a “regional destination” - that’s the view of those who have worked with Worthing Borough Council to create a masterplan to guide the rejuvenation of the much-loved open space.

    After listening to the views of hundreds of local people, the local authority and leading environment-shaping company Chris Blandford Associates have revealed an ambition to turn the area into a new Science Adventure Park.

    The claim came during an interview with Adur & Worthing Councils’ online magazine, which is designed to keep residents and business up-to-date with the ongoing change in the area.

    Speaking to Building AW, Adrienne Soudain, a landscape architect at Chris Blandford Associates, said the inspiration for the vision came from making the most of Brooklands’ unique setting.

    She said: “We are excited by the prospect of bringing science to life by offering hands-on experiences within a truly innovative regional park experience.

    “The local links to science and the creative responses from the stakeholder consultation inspired us to design an adventure park with multiple indoor and outdoor leisure activities for year-round interest and opportunities to explore and experience science phenomenon through leisure and play.

    “The creation of a regional destination will attract greater visitor numbers and contribute to the long-term viability of the park. Commercial ventures to offset the management costs of the park also offer valuable local employment opportunities.”

    The vision has been developed after input from more than 800 residents. The Friends of Brooklands Park have also been actively engaged in the process.

    Key features and benefits of the regeneration will include a new cafe and lakeside picnicking area at the heart of the park along with improved walks and fitness trails, areas for outdoor events and community activities, community gardens and an adventure play area.

    An indoor leisure activity centre in the south west corner of the park is also outlined to ensure it remains an attractive destination all year round.

    But Adrienne said that what will make the rejuvenation really special is that Brooklands has been “a focal point for people's lives over a number of generations”.

    She said: “We are passionate about creating opportunities for local community to come together, get involved and get a real sense of ownership over the park. When people feel a sense of ownership over their surroundings they look after them; they become cherished as an asset to the neighbourhood and a hub of the community.”

    Building AW is a bright, informal 28-page online publication which keeps residents and businesses across both areas up-to-date with all the latest development in their communities.

    Features in the October edition include an update on the Adur District Council-funded office block in Ham Road which will keep hundreds of jobs in the local area; details on the completion of a gateway to Shoreham Beach; and the latest on £5 million plans to improve Worthing town centre.

    The online publication also includes regular updates on some of the major projects across Adur and Worthing which are moving forward at speed.

    In their introductions to the edition, leaders recognised the change to local communities but urged that regeneration was about more than building houses.

    Councillor Brian Boggis, Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “As has been the case in recent months, much of the focus is on the Shoreham.

    "However, the recent decision of the planning committee to approve the New Monks Farm application for 600 new homes and the new IKEA store as well as the proposed industrial development on the Airport site promises to move the focus westward in the coming months."

    Councillor Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “Regeneration is important to the continued vitality of Worthing. This is not only in terms of our housing, our retail offer, or state of the art business parks that we aim to bring to Decoy Farm; but it is also about leisure, health and wellbeing. It’s about what we provide for our residents to enjoy, whatever their age.

    “That is why working in partnership with colleagues I am so pleased to see the next stage of the regeneration of Brooklands Park being announced.

    “Once delivered it will provide a major leisure attraction for residents and will put Worthing further on the map as a destination of choice for those who live within striking distance of the town.”
