Young Man Seeks Work

Posted on 27th April 2017

Here is a request for work from a lad who has a learning disability. Ideally he would like to work with cars.

I was also awarded a certificate for swimming and horse-riding.   I then studied art at Treloar Collage, which included —... read more

Fairy Tale End for Hillians

Fairy Tale End for Hillians

Posted on 27th April 2017

Fairy Tale End At The Green Elephants As Hill Beat The Drop By David Marriott Burgess Hill Town picked up a miraculous 2-1 victory to remain in the Ryman Premier Division. Merstham thought they had the last say with an 88th-minute equaliser, but a 98th-minute winner from Sam Fisk saved the Hillians from the drop. The Hillians needed to win the game and for one of the four teams above them to lose in order for them to survive. Ian Chapman chose an... read more

A Grand Tour for Raffle Prizes

I was able to go over to the busy County Ground and pick up the 2016 Championship... read more

Bellweather Sussex?

Bellweather Sussex?

Posted on 20th April 2017

Contrary to general misconception, East and West Sussex are not so true blue that you simply weigh the Tory votes, even if that is the picture in large rural stretches along the South Downs. In 2015, it was the loss of the two seats of Eastbourne and Lewes by the Lib Dems to the Conservatives that helped bolster David Cameron’s wafer-thin majority. Brighton and Hove – the single largest mass of population in the county – boasts Westminster’s... read more

Brighton Promoted

Brighton Promoted

Posted on 19th April 2017

The din of delight which went up at the final whistle here, as joyful supporters spilled out from all sides on to the turf, was cathartic. Brighton & Hove Albion can finally consign all those nightmarish memories of uncertainty to history. They can forget the seasons of homelessness after the shameful sale of the Goldstone Ground, years of soul‑destroying 70-mile commutes to home games in Gillingham, and even draw a line under the regular,... read more

Hughton For Labour Leader?

Hughton For Labour Leader?

Posted on 19th April 2017

Here’s an idea for the Labour Party, though it might not go down well in Brighton. Why not give left-leaning Chris Hughton a bell? After all, with promotion to the Premier League secured, he is notionally free until June 8. He knows how to run a campaign, how to build a team, how to harness the talents of those around him. And he deals in pragmatic visions not woolly dreams about the great collective. Brighton do not play football with a grandiose... read more
