KEY MOMENT: (l-r) Eamonn Rooney, Pamela Hogg and Charles Evans at the handing over of the Leas Lift 


■ BY NICK AMES 


FOLKESTONE’S Leas Lift, which 
links the town to the shore, is to 
reopen for business on Saturday. 

The popular funicular railway - 125 years 
old in September - has been out of action since 
June 30 last year. 

Shepway council, its previous owner, had 
withdrawn financial support, but Folkestone 
Estates stepped into the breach and brought 
the system back into working order. 

On Monday its representatives handed the 
keys to the stations on top of the Leas and close 
to the newly-created Folkestone Leas Lift Com¬ 
munity Interest Company, which will run it. 

Heritage 

Crowds cheered as the first cars slowly made 
their way up and down the cliffs. 

Eamonn Rooney is a founder-member of the 
group and also collects tickets on the lift. 

“This is a fantastic day for Folkestone,” he 
said. “Part of our heritage has been saved. 
When I left as a ticket collector 13 months ago 
I knew it wasn’t the end of the story. Now this 
has proved to be the case.” 

The lift ran into problems due to lack of 
finances and in its last year of operation it 
took £35,000, charging visitors just under 
£1 a ride. 

This was its lowest return for several years - 
but its new operator says that such a sum 
raised in the next 12 months will be enough to 
guarantee its continued running. 

Pamela Hogg, who is part of the operating 
company, said: “We are now back in business 
and an important part of local history is 
again available for people to enjoy.”

'Short route' 
Marijke's treat 
as Eurotunnel 
hits milestone 


■ BY NICK AMES 


EUROTUNNEL is cele¬ 
brating after reaching a 
new landmark - 250 mil¬ 
lion passengers have now 
passed through the 
Channel Tunnel. 

Trains first took passengers from 
England to France on May 6, 1994, 
and since then a number equivalent 
to half the population of the entire 
European Union has boarded its 
services. According to the latest fig¬ 
ures the tunnel remains most popu¬ 
lar among the British - 80 per cent 
of users have been from the UK. 

To commemorate the occasion the 
company invited one of its most 
loyal customers for a day out. 

Marijke Korteweg was one of the 
first to use the service when it start¬ 
ed running - travelling between her 
home in Belgium and her work in 
London every week. 

Her pet dog was one of the first 
animals to take advantage of the pet 
passport scheme which replaced the 
quarantine system. 

With her granddaughter Eva, Dr 
Kortweg was presented with flowers 
and champagne as well as shown 
what goes on behind the scenes at 
the Channel Tunnel site in 
Cheriton. She visited the control 
centre, the emergency room and the 
tower which oversees the entire site. 

“I couldn’t have had a job in 
England and a home in Belgium if it 
wasn’t for Eurotunnel,” she said. 

“I have always really appreciated 
what the service offers and the ded¬ 
ication and professionalism of the 
staff. For myself - and I am sure mil¬ 
lions of others - it has changed our 
lives. Getting between the UK and 



SPECIAL GUEST: Commuter Marijke 
Kortweg with granddaughter Eva 

the Continent is now so easy. For 12 
years I worked in London and used 
the shuttle service to get home at 
weekends. 

“Every Monday I got on at 
Coquelles at 4.25am and arrived in 
London in plenty of time for work. 
On Fridays I would leave my desk at 
3pm and be home in time for dinner. 

“Funnily enough, in Flemish my 
surname means ‘the short route’, so 
maybe I was destined to use the 
quickest cross-Channel service.” 

During her visit, Eva was allowed 
to sit at the desk usually occupied by 
railway controllers and press a but¬ 
ton to lift a traffic barrier. 

She also tried on a fireman’s hel¬ 
met while sitting in the front of one 
of the company’s purpose-built fire 
engines - small enough to negotiate 
the emergency tunnels. 


Ex-MP becomes Lord 
Howard of Lympne 

MICHAEL Howard has been elevat¬ 
ed to the House of Lords and given 
the title of Lord Howard of Lympne. 

The former Conservative leader 
and one-time Home Secretary stood 
down as MP for Folkestone and 
Hythe in May, after 27 years. 

He was named in former Prime 
Minister Gordon Brown’s dissolu¬ 
tions honours list before the election 
alongside other ex-Cabinet ministers 
and senior retiring MPs, including 
former Deputy PM John Prescott. 

Guy Black, a former adviser to 
Lord Howard and director of the 
Telegraph media group, was also 
made a life peer. 

Epileptic is rescued 
after hillside tumble 

A MAN who suffered an epileptic fit 
and fell down a hillside was saved by 
paramedics in a dramatic rescue. 

The 33-year-old was walking along 
Canterbury Road in Folkestone 
when the seizure struck and he fell 
down the steep hill, in the early 
hours of July 19. 

He regained consciousness to find 
his fall had been broken by bushes. 
South East Coast ambulance service 
then received a 999 at 3.25am. 

Ambulance, police and fire crews 
together with the coastguard took 
part in a 30-minute operation to find 
the man. He was treated for injuries 
to his leg and pelvis before being 
taken to the William Harvey 
Hospital, in Ashford. 

A spokeswoman said: “He was in a 
considerable amount of pain and the 
emergency services did an excellent 
to bring about a successful rescue.” 

Post office gun-raid 
suspects remanded 

TWO men have been charged in con¬ 
nection with an armed raid at St 
Mary’s Bay post office, on Thursday, 
last week. 

Billy Williams, 18, of St Martin’s 
Road, New Romney, has been 
charged with robbery, along with pos¬ 
session of a shotgun while commit¬ 
ting an offence and possessing a shot¬ 
gun while prohibited to do so. 

Sean William Edgar, 20, from 
Grassmere, St Mary’s Bay, has also 
been charged with robbery. 

Williams has also been charged in 
relation to a robbery at a bookmakers 
in New Romney last month. 

Both men appeared at Ashford 
court on Monday and were remand¬ 
ed until Friday, August 13. 


Family dismayed by 
killer's jail sentence 


A GREATSTONE man has been sen¬ 
tenced to nine years’ imprisonment 
after a fatal stabbing in the seaside 
village. 

Paul Fender, 44, of The Parade, was 
convicted of manslaughter at Croydon 
Crown Court after being found guilty 
of stabbing 28-year-old Kerrin Martin, 
in Hardy Road, on November 20 last year. 

He was sentenced to nine years after 
a request from the judge for reports as 
to whether he should be considered a 
dangerous offender. 


The family of the victim are unhap¬ 
py at the sentence, say police. 

Ch Supt Chris Hogben said: “While 
any court result will not bring back 
the victim of this horrendous crime, 
the family are very disappointed with 
this verdict, having been robbed of a 
loving daughter and mother by the 
violent actions of Fender. 

“This tragic case also highlights how 
important the work the police and our 
partners are doing in dealing with 
domestic violence.”

Beat that, Branson! 


■ BY JAMES ALEXANDRE 

SIR RICHARD Branson has been 
advised to enjoy the experience 
when he attempts to kite-surf 
across the Channel - by a young 
family who have just done so. 

Ralph Crathome and his daughters Lucy 
and Polly completed the feat last week, ahead 
of the billionaire Virgin boss’s own planned 
crossing next month. 

In doing so they 
believe they’ve sailed 
into the record books 
after completing the 
journey in three hours 
and 45 minutes, having 
set off from Dungeness 
Point. 

The sport involves 
riding along the water 
on a customised surf¬ 
board while being 
pulled along by a kite. 

Lucy, 21, who has 
competed in the sport 
at national level said: 

“It didn’t really sink in 
that we were actually 
crossing the Channel 
until the half way point. I saw France in the 
distance and just thought, ‘This is ridiculous’.” 

Her 16-year-old sister, Polly, said she found 
the whole experience exhilarating, and added: 
“When I realised we were going to make it, I 
turned to Lucy and we just laughed.” 

But instead of being inspired by Sir 
Richard’s planned attempt, the Crathomes 
said they had been planning the crossing for 
some time and the opportunity only came 
about recently when a friend offered to pro¬ 
vide a support boat. 

Ralph, 51, said: “It was all a bit last minute. 



BOARD MEETING: Lucy, Ralph and Polly 
Crathome at Dungeness before their crossing 


We aimed to go from 
Dungeness to Wimereux, 
but the currents and light 
winds forced us further 
south. 

“We reckon we covered 
about 30 miles before our 
kites ditched into the water 
alongside the Boulogne har¬ 


bour walls.” 

Wife and mum Cally, who was in the support 
boat said: “It was a fantastic day but the winds 
were quite light and variable, so conditions 
were not ideal.“We had to watch out for ves¬ 
sels in the shipping lanes and judge when to 
let them pass. 

“The French coastguard don’t like you land¬ 
ing on the beach and we noticed there were 
two policemen waiting for us. So once they 
landed by the harbour wall we quickly picked 
up the equipment and went home.” 

A family friend who joined them, Richard 


after the crossing 


Jones, couldn’t complete the crossing after his 
kite suffered a puncture. The Crathomes, 
from Wingham, near Canterbury, have been 
learning the sport between them for the last 
six years and usually sail from Greatstone, 
Sandwich Bay and Camber in East Sussex. 

They think they have set a number of 
records, including for the first women to kite- 
surf the Channel, Polly as the youngest person 
to do so and Ralph as the oldest. 

However, the latter could yet be beaten by 
Sir Richard - who turned 60 this month - 
when he and his children Holly and Sam and 
nephews set off from Dungeness sometime in 
August. The Crathomes might be on holiday 
kite-surfing elsewhere by then, but said they 
hope to pass on their best wishes to the Virgin 
boss, together with a few tips, through a mutu¬ 
al friend. 

Polly, who is currently second in the ladies 
amateur freestyle section of the UK 2010 kite- 
surf tour, thanked her sponsor, Windsor. 



Welcome fall in 
recorded crime 

CRIME is falling in our region, 
according to new Home Office fig¬ 
ures, and is down by more than ten 
per cent compared with last year. 

The latest statistics for South 
Kent - which covers Shepway, 
Dover and Ashford - show total 
recorded crime fell by 13.2 per cent 
from April, 2009, to March, 2010. 

There were 2,797 fewer victims 
of crime, with the number of inci¬ 
dents dropping from 21,113 to 
18,316 year-on-year. 

Home burglaries are the lowest 
in Kent, at 5.7 per 1,000 house¬ 
holds, from 893 to 789. Violent 
crime is down by 9.8 per cent, from 
4,787 to 4,317; and robbery by 13.4 
per cent, from 172 to 149. 

Area commander Ch Supt Chris 
Hogben said: “This is a result of 
hard work by police officers, 
PCSOs and staff in South Kent. 

“My officers have spoken to thou¬ 
sands of residents to find out about 
local concerns and tackle them 
direct. This led to South Kent 
achieving the highest increase in 
public confidence across Kent.” 

Neighbourhood task teams had 
helped reduce anti-social behav¬ 
iour, especially in town centres on 
Friday and Saturday nights. 

“We face challenging times 
ahead, but I’m confident my offi¬ 
cers will continue to provide a first 
class policing service for South 
Kent,” Ch Supt Hogben added. 


Harbour dispersal zone 


FOLKESTONE harbour has become 
a designated dispersal area for the 
second year to help police deal with 
anti-social behaviour. 

From now until December 28, uni¬ 
formed officers, including PCSOs, will 
be able to send away groups of people 
causing intimidation, alarm or dis¬ 
tress. The aim is to help officers tackle 
the minority who cause trouble and 
spoil the enjoyment of everybody else. 

The decision to apply for a dispersal 
area was made by police and the 
Community Safety Unit. 

Any group of two or more people 
found causing intimidation, harass¬ 
ment, alarm or distress can be moved 
on by an officer. Those under 16, not 
accompanied by a responsible adult, 
can be taken back to their homes 
between the hours of 9pm and 6am. 

Failure to comply can lead to arrest 
and a fine and/or three months 
imprisonment. Sgt Geny Meers said: 


“This is an added discretionary power 
to move troublemakers on, which is 
something we can’t otherwise do 
unless they are committing specific 
offences. For example, jumping from 
the harbour wall isn’t a criminal 
offence but a civil one. However, it is 
extremely dangerous and causes 
annoyance to fisherermen and others. 

“Folkestone Harbour is a pleasant 
and popular area and most people are 
well behaved and respectful. 

“These powers will help us deal with 
the minority who persist in causing a 
nuisance. It is a repeat of a dispersal 
area we implemented last year.” 

The dispersal area is bounded by 
Lower Sandgate Road, Harbour 
Approach Road, Tontine Street, 
Harbour Way, Tram Road, The Stade, 
The Promenade to East Cliff Pavillion, 
Folkestone Harbour Her, The Coast to 
Rotunda site junction with Marine 
Terrace. 


Flat flooded during chip pan blaze 


A CHIP pan fire which melted a 
washing machine and flooded a 
Folkestone flat forced two women to 
flee their home. 

Fire crews were called to the second- 
floor flat in Brockman Road just 
before 9.30pm on Thursday, last week, 
after reports of a kitchen fire. 
Firefighters put out the blaze before 
ventilating the building. 

Watch manager Mick Smith said: 


“The women left a pan on the hob and 
it ignited. They tried to move the pan, 
splashing burning oil on the washing 
machine, melting it and flooding the 
kitchen, damaging the flat below.” 

In the last three years there have 
been 43 cooking fires in Shepway. 

Mr Smith said: “Thankfully, the 
women managed to escape, although 
their home - and that of their neigh¬ 
bour - was badly damaged.”

Harbour scheme 
could fire town 
housing market 


PROPERTY prices in Folkestone 
could soar thanks to the regener¬ 
ation plans for the harbour and 
seafront, according to an online 
estate-agent network. 

The housing market, together with the 
town’s economy, will be boosted by the mixed- 
use development and draw buyers to the 
area, especially with the high-speed rail link 
in place, reports Email4Propertyco.uk. 

The Halifax House Price Index said that 
the average house price in Folkestone was 
currently £177,033, down on the 2008 aver¬ 
age of £197,490. 

Steve Lees, head of marketing at 
Email4Property.co.uk, said: “The regener¬ 
ation of Folkestone’s harbour and seafront 
will help reaffirm its regional and historical 
importance. 

“If granted, the plans will result in visible 
improvements to the harbour and provide 
people with improved services and employ¬ 
ment, in turn boosting the local economy. 

Increase 

“As a result, I would expect to see increas¬ 
ing numbers of buyers drawn to the area, 
aided in part by the new high-speed rail link 
which allows quick and easy access to the 
capital in less than an hour. 

“There is also likely to be an increase in the 
number of second homes as holidaymakers 
continue to turn to traditional British sea¬ 
side resorts as a foreign alternative. After a 
period of bust, Folkestone is certainly set for 
a property boom.” 

Mark Taylor, branch manager at Geering 
and Colyer estate agents in Cheriton Place, 
said: “I see Folkestone’s property prices 
rising in the coming years, with the biggest 
increases likely to be down by the harbour 
and The Leas. 


■ BY JAMES ALEXANDRE 


“A number of shops have closed in the last 
few years, but with renewed levels of invest¬ 
ment Folkestone will become more appealing 
as a weekend destination as well as for those 
looking to buy a second home. 

“Folkestone could easily follow in Bright¬ 
on’s footsteps, which also managed to rein¬ 
vent itself, becoming a hub for tourists on the 
south coast.” 

Public consultation on the seafront propos¬ 
als, based on designs drawn up by architect 
Sir Terry Farrell, finished last month. 

Channel Chamber of Commerce chairman 
Ray Johnson said: “The harbour develop¬ 
ment would be a great asset, improving the 
housing facilities and seafront areas. 

“In relation to the housing availability, this 
would provide an excellent facility for work¬ 
ers to be attracted to what we hope will be 
improved employment opportunities.” 

However, he did say there were issues over 
lending criteria and the implications of 
capital gains tax, which could affect the over¬ 
all property market. 

Peter Bettley, of the Folkestone Harbour 
Company, which is behind the seafront pro¬ 
posals, said: “There is evidence that the 
changes that have been taking place in the 
Old Town, combined with the new rail link, 
have already attracted new buyers to 
Folkestone, and this is helping to support the 
local economy in many different ways, apart 
from stimulating demand for housing.” 

He said he could not predict what the mix 
of buyers would be, but the plan was to 
develop a range of housing to appeal to a 
broad market. 

Mr Bettley said: “Our ambition is to create 
a successful year-round and lively communi¬ 
ty on the seafront so we are not specifically 
targeting the second-home or holiday market.”

RIDERS, MAKE YOUR MARK... 


Police on Romney Marsh are warning cyclists 
to be on their guard after eight reported 
bicycle thefts since the end of April. 

The thefts happened in Lydd, Greatstone and 
Romney Sands Holiday Village between April 
30 and June 10 and ranged in value between 
£70 and £2,800. 

Lydd PCSO Mandy Kimpton said: "All but 
two of the thefts were to insecure cycles and 
clearly the work of opportunist offenders. 

One had been locked but not chained up. Only 
one of the bikes was security-marked. 


"Marking a bike, or any property, with 
a personal security code means that when 
stolen goods are recovered they can be 
quickly reunited with owners. 

"If recovered property is not marked, the 
owners may never be traced.” 

PCSO Kimpton, together with neighbourhood 
officers PC Lee Jordan and PC Will Glennie, 
have recovered several bicycles, pictured, from 
the area. However, none have been claimed 
and there is no way to identify them and 
return them to their owners. 



Cup-final tickets to ride 

A HORSE-RIDING group for the disabled 
has been presented with tickets to two high- 
profile finals in recognition of its work. 

Folkestone soft-drinks company Silver 
Spring handed over the prize to Cobbes 
Meadow Riding Group in Canterbury, which 
in turn put them up for auction at its annual 
meeting and raised funds for the Riding For 
The Disabled Association. 

The presentation included eight tickets to 
see the Royal Windsor Cup final and a further 
eight to see the Archie David Cup final at 
Great Windsor Park. The group was also pre¬ 
sented with branded hats. 

Silver Spring managing director Neill 
Cotton said: “We are delighted that Cobbes 
Meadow was able to benefit from our associa¬ 
tion with the Guards Polo Club. 

“All the volunteers work hard to make a 
useful contribution to the community and 
they are extremely deserving of these tickets.” 


Speak up about cycling 

A SHEPWAY cycling plan has been drawn 
up by Kent County Council and put out for 
public consultation and feedback. 

The intention is to help the environment as 
well as improve public health, as outlined in 
the objectives in the Kent Highways trans¬ 
port plan, which covers the five years to 2011. 

The county council’s Shepway and Dover 
transportation team has since been develop¬ 
ing a cycling plan for the district and wants 
to hear your priorities for the future. 

The consultation closes on Friday, October 
8, and can be viewed at www.kent.gov.uk. 

Theft: police comb area 

WITNESSES are asked to come forward 
after the theft of four chickens and a chicken- 
coop from a garden in Cheriton high street. 

The theft happened overnight between 
Sunday and Monday, June 6-7. The coop is 
6ft long, 4ft high and 3ft wide and does not 
have a base. The top left-hand comer has a 
roosting house and is valued at £144. 

The chickens are described as a light-brown 
hen, a light Sussex, a Bonvennera and a 
Maran Cuivree, valued at a total of £55. 

Anyone with information about what hap¬ 
pened is asked to call police on 01622 690690 
or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

WELL DONE: International water-skier Calum Heath, 14, with councillor Sue Nicholas 


Ensuring excellence 
gets sporting chance 

A CELEBRATION of clubs and talented individuals who have benefit¬ 
ed from funding to support sport in the community has been held at 
Dover Sea Sports Centre. 

The event was coordinated by the Active Dover partnership of local 
groups working to increase participation and excellence in sport. 

The sports grant fund is administered by Dover District Council’s 
sports development officer Sarah Philpott. It is open to all clubs and indi¬ 
viduals in the district and is given primarily to people competing at a 
county or national standard, or to clubs looking to further development 
and to increase participation in sport. 

Council vice-chairwoman Sue Nicholas said: “The aim was to recog¬ 
nise the commitment shown by the many sporting individuals and clubs 
in our community and to congratulate them for all their efforts to either 
represent or develop sport in the district.” 


Vet denies illegally 
docking tails of 13 
rottweiler puppies 


A VET has appeared in court 
charged with the illegal 
docking of the tails of 13 rot¬ 
tweiler puppies, causing 
unnecessary suffering. 

David Smith, of Lower Farm, Fingle- 
sham, had earlier denied the charges 
before the hearing at Ashford court 
which started on Thursday last week. 

The prosecution was brought by the 
RSPCA and referred to an event that 
took place in March, 2008. 

Smith, 60, who works at Lakeview 
Vets in Folkestone, is accused of the 
offences after a litter of 13 puppies 
was brought to him. They had been 
bom to Millie, a rottweiler owned by 
Tony Heldt, of Folkestone, who works 
for a security company. 

However, when the dogs were bom, 
Millie had been living with a member 
of Mr Heldt’s family in Hawkinge. 

When the animals were taken to 
Smith, it is alleged he “snipped off” 
their tails. The RSPCA says such pro¬ 
cedures should only be carried out on 
dogs that are being used in law 


■ BY NICK AMES 


enforcement, by the military or for the 
retrieval of shot game. 

Even in these cases the breeds that 
can undergo the procedure should be 
limited to spaniels, terriers or hunt- 
point retrievers. 

The prosecution claims that 
although the rottweilers belonged to a 
man involved in security work, there 
was no evidence they would have been 
used by his company. 

The animal welfare charity also 
says the breed is not one that should 
be docked in any case. 

Rex Bryan, for the prosecution, said 
Smith cut off the dogs’ tails one by one 
and some of the animals cried out, 
while one bled. He added that over the 
following week the tails became sore. 

“The cut was through fat, muscular 
tissue, sinew, possibly tailbone and 
even blood vessels,” said Mr Bryan. 

“Our case is that this was unneces¬ 
sary, caused pain and subsequent 
hyper-sensitivity to pain. 

‘We contend that they were not cer¬ 


tified working dogs, used in law 
enforcement, the military, rescue 
work, the prison service or pest con¬ 
trol or the lawful shooting of animals.” 

The dogs had been taken to the vets 
by Tracey Ralph, a friend of the fami¬ 
ly that owned them. She told the court 
she put them in two boxes in the back 
of her car to take them to the surgery. 

Ms Ralph said: “He [David Smith] 
took one of the dogs out of the box and 
snipped its tail. No medicine was used 
and nothing was put on the tail. 

“Some [of the puppies] were OK, a 
couple cried and one’s tail bled. After he 
put them back in the box, I took them 
back to Millie, who was in my car. They 
were just days old and she was fretting.” 

Ms Ralph said she gave Smith a 
business card from Mr Heldt and he 
gave her a document to hand to the 
owner of the dogs. 

“I bathed the tails of the dogs for a 
couple of weeks after,” she said. “They 
had become sore and scabby. After two 
to three weeks they were all healed.” 

One by one the animals were sold to 
new owners, the court heard. 

The case continues.

your local interview 



Q How long have you been at University Centre 
Folkestone? 

A I started working for Canterbury Christ 
Church University in 2006, running the 
performing-arts degree course when we 
started it up in Broadstairs. But it was always 
destined for UCF, so when the centre was 
finally ready in September 2007 we moved in 
with two cohorts of students - those who’d 
begun the previous year as well as the new lot 
who started their undergraduate lives in 
Folkestone. A year later, in August 2008, I 
took over as campus director. 


Q 


What attracted you to the job? 


A The chance to shape a university centre 
so that it does something for the local 
community and for the wider region. For an 
educator, that’s an incredibly exciting oppor¬ 
tunity, especially in a university centre that 
defines itself by its outward-facing attitude. 

We aren’t cloistered in an ivory tower and 
all our courses have a healthy grounding in 
the realistic world of work. We want people of 
all ages who want to explore the arts to 
unlock their own creativity and to pass some¬ 
thing on to others in their community. I think 
we’ll be judged by our contribution to the 
town in the arts and the creative industries, 
and that’s the challenge, for me. 


What do you enjoy most about your job? 

A Seeing new things happen that may, 
just, offer someone a chance to try to 
discover more about themselves than they 
thought possible. We’re making some things 
happen here in the Shepway area that 
haven’t happened before. Students doing 
street theatre, the arts festival we’ve just 
put on, workshops around the community, 
hosting visits by people who are curious to 
see what we could do for them... 

Q Why do you think that a university centre is so 
important for Shepway? 

A Partly, it’s symbolic. I’m looking forward 
to the day when the road-signs say 
‘Folkestone - a South Coast University Town’ 
or something like that, something that sig¬ 
nifies that this place has ambition and aspi¬ 
rations. 

But more importantly, it’s practical, and 
here’s where it gets personal: I’m the eldest 
of five; my mum was a part-time librarian 
and my dad was an engineer who was 
unemployed for a lot of my adolescence. But 
they could afford to see me off to university 
because I got a full grant, all fees paid. 

That was Britain in the 70s. Now, young 
people from families like mine will struggle 
financially and students like me finish their 


courses in a lot of debt. If having a local 
university centre makes it a little easier, 
financially, for kids like me to get a univer¬ 
sity education, that makes it worthwhile. 

What did you do before UCF? 

A I’ve been a teacher all my life. Music most¬ 
ly. I ran the music department at 
Highworth School, in Ashford, for almost 20 
years. So yes, this place has been something of 
a life-changer for me, too. 

I What do you do in your spare time outside work? 

A Mostly music, again! I’m a singer: I’ve 
been in the cathedral choir at Canterbury 
on and off ever since I came to Kent in 1976. 
I run a small choir, and my partner and I run 
the UCF Kids Choir on a Saturday morning 
for kids aged six to 12 from 10.30am- 
11.15am if anyone’s interested. Otherwise I 
cycle a lot, read endlessly and go off on motor¬ 
cycle trips from time to time. 

Q How can people find out more about what UCF has 
to offer? 

A Go to our website at www.ucf.ac.uk, call 
us on 01303 220870, or see our new 
brochure for 2011. There are some great 
new courses for people to look at.

Special award 
for constable 


A VOLUNTEER police officer who 
gives up his own time to serve in 
the Dover district has been praised 
by the area’s police chief. 

Matthew Prigmore, 24, has been awarded 
the Special Constable Of The Year accolade in 
recognition of his outstanding contribution. 

In the last year 
alone, he has vol¬ 
unteered more 
than 1,200 hours 
and made 34 
arrests, attended 
more than 200 
incidents and con¬ 
ducted almost 70 
stop-and-searches. 

His ‘normal’ job 
is as a pastoral 
tutor at a local col¬ 
lege, but as a 
special constable 
he often works 
alongside full-time 
police officers and 
produces opera¬ 
tions for his col¬ 
leagues in the Special Constabulary to work in 
the Dover district. 

He was presented his award during a cere¬ 
mony at Folkestone police station to acknow- 


■ BY NICK AMES 


ledge the efforts of the Special Constabulary. 

Several officers from the Special Constab¬ 
ulary were also presented with Long Service 
Medals, including Special Inspector Jason 
Turner, who has served in the Dover district 
for more than nine years. 

Acting Superintendent Martin Bradley said: 
“The Special Constabulary is an important 
part of the policing family and plays a crucial 
role in keeping the area safe and crime down. 

“Special Constable Prigmore has proven to 
be a valuable asset to the Dover District 
Specials Team and is recognised as a valuable 
member of the South Kent Special Con¬ 
stabulary.” 

South Kent currently has 38 volunteers in 
its Special Constabulary. Men and women 
aged 18-50 who are in good health, can volun¬ 
teer about 16 hours a month and are able to 
attend regular training are eligible to become 
Special Constables. 

Formal qualifications are not needed to join 
up, but good communication skills are impor¬ 
tant, such as writing up concise reports and 
being able to express yourself clearly in 
English. 

For further information about joining the 
Special Constabulary, phone PC Jim Empett 
on 01233 896187 or visit www.kent.police.uk.

BREAK TIME 

Experts in tune on 
De Haan research 

EXPERTS gathered in Switzerland this 
month to consider the findings of the 
Sidney De Haan Research Centre about 
the health benefits of singing. 

The Folkestone-based centre’s study 
into the benefits of singing to mental 
health was on the agenda at the 20th 
IUHPE World Conference on Health 
Promotion in Geneva, from July 11-15. 

The study involved a network of 
singing groups for people with severe 
and enduring mental-health problems. 

Seven choirs in east Kent were set up 
in 2009 and 150 participants assessed 
over a ten-month period. 

The centre’s director at Canterbury 
Christ Church University, Professor 
Stephen Clift, said: ‘We found striking 
improvements in mental-health well¬ 
being from involvement in choirs. 

“Singing together helps people feel 
happier, connected and more supported. 
It builds confidence, gives a sense of 
achievement and also reduces distress¬ 
ing symptoms and problems.” 

The study, funded by the NHS Eastern 
and Coastal Kent PCT, drew to a close 
last month. Assistant director of public 
health Dr John Rodriguez said: “Based 
on the evidence on what is already 
known of the benefits of singing groups 
for older people, the PCT fully supported 
this project. The evaluation of this study 
clearly demonstrates the benefits.”

World Conference on Health Promotion,

They were joined by 39 children from schools 
in the Belgian town of Poperinge, which is 
twinned with Hythe, to perform in front of 
guests including Hythe mayor Keren Belcourt 
and members of the Poperinge Twinning 
Association. The Shepway Rural Olympics 
involved teams of youngsters undertaking

sented with an Olympic rings cup, designed 
and built by the design and technology depart¬ 
ment at Brockhill Park. 

All pupils were awarded medals and helped 
in their challenges by Brockhill students, who

Unseen police force 
who are always at 
your beck and call 


WHEN staff at the Kent Police 
Force Contact and Control Centre 
pick up the phone they have no 

_• j _i~ _j-i- „ ___i 

mea wiius un liiu uliiui tJiiu. 

The caller could be phoning to report a 
major incident, a crime in progress or 
perhaps a motorway crash. 

But whatever it is about, the 
listening skills and calm 
approach of the call-handlers 
ensure the person is given the 
help they need - and in some 
cases the advice given over 
the phone could help save 
someone’s life. 

For staff at the centre, their 
work is unpredictable and some¬ 
times challenging - but it is always 
very worthwhile. 

Kent Police receives an average of 700-800 
emergency calls a day - which are all dealt 
with at its Force Contact and Control Centre. 

Alongside emergencies, the centre takes a 
further 1,000-1,200 non-emergency calls a 
day, ranging from people seeking advice on 
legislation to those phoning in with informa¬ 
tion to assist the police. 


■ BY NICK AMES 


The Force Contact and Control Centre is 
based in Maidstone and is open 24 hours a 
day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. 

The centre is divided into sections to 
reflect Kent’s six policing areas: 
South Kent, East Kent, Mid Kent, 
West Kent, North Kent and 
Medway. 

Chief Inspector of 
Operations at the centre, 
Nicola Faulconbridge, said: 
“We’re always busy, but the 
peak times are 8am to 10am 
and from 4pm to midnight 
and we always receive more 
calls during school holidays. We 
don’t get a lot of nuisance or hoax 
999 calls, but when we do these callers 
could be putting other people’s lives at risk ” 
Ch Insp Faulconbridge said: “All calls are 
valuable, as the callers are possibly witness¬ 
es to what happened.” 

All emergency calls - when there is a crime 
in progress or a life at risk - to Kent Police 
should be made by dialling 999. All other 
calls should be made to 01622 690690.

Town Council (HTC) on Thursday, June 10, 
to discuss the Fisherman’s Beach develop¬ 
ment was an example of the level to which 
the relationship between electors and our 
town and district councils has sunk. 

While the meeting chaired by councillor John Schoner 
on Thursday July 1, was infinitely more democratic, the 
basic sickness so evident in our area has not gone away. 

The flow of objections and public anger directed at that 
and other development proposals supported by Shepway 
council and HTC should have woken them to that fact, 
causing the management to do something about it. 

But apparently not. 

Face-to-face dealings with Shepway council give the 
impression that its people are a fair, courteous and polite 
bunch, officers going to some lengths to accommodate 
our requests for information and access to files. 

But that picture is illusory. ‘They 1 do not live in our 
world and are not at the receiving end of the actions 
‘they 1 take. Officers and members remain expressionless 
as they tell us that the black we know is in fact white is 
good for us and is what the majority want. 

The ‘majority 1 ‘the/ claim to ‘consult’ on planning 
proposals is never independently scrutinised, being 
made up of numbers that are never proven from places 
too far away to be relevant. 

We remember the ‘evidence’ from New Romney of the 
‘need’ for a Sainsbuiy’s superstore in Hythe. Shepway 
council’s attempt to justify that was laughable and 
pathetic. An insult to our intelligence. 

Conditions sold to us as limiting the destruction of the 
Hythe Imperial have been whittled away to vanishing 
point, while it would be nice to know the whereabouts of 
the reported £2.2 million promised for affordable homes. 

What have we in fact been given? No affordable homes, 
no work refurbishing the hotel as ‘guaranteed’. Nothing, 
just a bombed-out, once-lovefy garden. Now just a prop¬ 
erty for buying and selling to no apparent benefit of the 
community of our once-proud Cinque Port of Hythe. 

Who do these people think they are? 

Dealings with Shepway council make me think of 
what it must have been like for Alice at the Mad Hatter’s 
Tea Party when confronted by the Red Queen. Totally 
incomprehensible. 

Planning as conducted by Shepway council trades the 
quality of life of the residents of one community against 
that of other communities. Housing and roads here, but 
not there. 

As each community forgoes its own interests for the 
sake of another, when all communities have given up 
their interests in this bizarre merry-go-round, the 
quality of life for all will have moved down another notch 
until the next developers’jamboree. 

It is the philosophy of the lowest common denominator 


and it is ruining our lives and, of course, where we live. 

This creeping community destruction may start with 
overpopulation, but it is the failure of elected members to 
protect the quality of life of their constituents that allows 
it to happen. 

We see it at Lydd airport. A developer only has to men¬ 
tion jobs - and how often do these come to fruition? - for 
some councillors to throw reason and logic straight over 
the Leas Cliffs. To hell with the RSPB’s internationally- 
protected reserve and Natural England’s listed sites, and 
who cares a damn about the landscape and biodiversity 
in the International Year of Biodiversity? 

Shepway-council members simply do not understand 
the urgent need to address species loss or why failure to 
do so will affect their quality of life as much as the com¬ 
munities they are failing. 

Environment - who needs the environment? 

Their inability to see what is happening will, if allowed 
to continue, consign us all to history, along with the 
dinosaurs from which many of them have become indis¬ 
tinguishable. 

It seems they know far more than Sir David 
Attenborough or the scientific community. 

There is another, increasingly disturbing, issue. If, as 
we hear, committee members sometimes choose to 
‘approve’ rather than ‘refuse’ solely because they face an 
appeal by a wealthy developer, this is quite wrong. 

Approval of an application as an expedient to avoid the 
cost of contesting an appeal removes our right to have 
our views honestly represented by those elected to do so. 

There is a trend in evidence whereby the greater the 
social and environmental impact of a scheme, the more 
developers keep things quiet while claiming ‘commercial 
confidentiality’ as they get their ducks in a row. 

Softly, softly catchee monkey. For‘commercial confiden¬ 
tiality’, read ‘Gotcha! Surprise, surprise’. 

This is no way to conduct the affairs of public office - 
we are entitled to public notification the minute that 
planners start talking to a developer. 

We at Shepway Environment and Community 
Network work unpaid in evenings and at weekends, 
having a few weeks to respond and take action. 

Shepway council has the opportunity to revive democ¬ 
racy in the district, where the word is in danger of 
becoming a dead letter. If Shepway chief executive 
Alistair Stewart was to respond positively we would 
support him to the hilt. But if it’s business as usual, we 
will harry and campaign to the wire. 

We will be publicising meetings to raise awareness of 
what is planned by Shepway council for your patch, but 
anyone wanting advance notice, an agenda and a back¬ 
ground paper can phone 01303 265737 or email 
thespouthouse@googlemail.com; or call 01303 874468 or

YOUR LETTERS 


Everything must be 
done to save home 

Some days ago I had the privilege 
of visiting the annual garden party 
at Sampson Court in Mongeham 
and of talking with residents and 
families about the proposed closure 
of the home. 

All those I talked to were not 
just full of praise for the care and 
support at Sampson Court, but 
concerned about the potential loss 
of the day centre which performs 
such a valued role for people still in 
the community. 

How can such a facility be 
replaced? And where will the 
respite beds come from to replace 
those lost at Sampson Court? 

I met a 92-year-old who, alongside 
other residents, will need to find a 
new home if these proposals go 
through. 

I hope we can do eveiything possible 
to convince Kent County Council to 
keep this valuable facility open at a 
time when there are more frail 
elderly people than ever before. 

Ben Bano, Mayor of Deal 

Just to clarify Euro 
by-election process 

In response to Frederic Stansfield’s 
letter last week, I sympathise with 
his concern. The European by-election 
process is under Government 
control and not the Green Party’s 
so, when voting in a European 
election, the public are voting for 
the party, not the candidate. 

The candidates on the list are 
in order of preference as decided 
within the party, and this is true 
for all the parties represented. 

Had the same situation arisen 
for another party, it would have had 
no choice but to take the same 
action the Green Party did. 

The option of a by-election does 
not exist for practical reasons of 
the costs of staging a ballot over 
the whole South East region, with 
counting in every district etc. 

Furthermore, a European election 
based on a preferential choice of 
candidates, where eveiy party puts 
forward ten candidates, would 
involve a lot of homework for the 
electorate having to wade through 
the viability of 60 or more candidates. 

I would like to thank Mr 
Stansfield for his support and take 
this opportunity to assure him, and 
all Green supporters, that Keith 
will work hard to maintain the high 
standards set by Caroline Lucas 
and Jean Lambert in the European 
Parliament. 

Keith has already taken on many 
roles and visited our Kent Green 
Party meeting in Wye in June, as 
well as a recent visit to Medway. 

We can keep an eye on him via his 
website www.keithtaylormep.org.uk. 

If anyone would like more control 
over the candidacy and running 
order for European elections they are 
more than welcome to join the Green 
Party - www.greenparty.org.uk/join 
- and take an active role. 

Steven Campkin, Kent Green Party 


MP must not vote to 
repeal cruel Hunt Act 

This letter is to alert readers to the 
campaign being organised to repeal 
the Hunting Act and to make this 
form of cruelty legal again. 

A local, recently elected, MP is 
known to be determined to vote in 
favour of this outdated, privileged 
form of animal abuse despite 
the overwhelming opposition of 
the public and, by definition, his 
constituents. 

We urge readers to take this MP 
to task and ensure that we continue 
to live in a more humane society. 

Michael Nightingale and Brian Lamb, 
Folkestone 


Alternative system 
doesn't get my vote 

So far as I am concerned, Damian 
Collins won the right to be MP for 
Folkestone and Hythe fair and 
square in May’s general election, 
even though he just failed by less 
than one per cent to obtain 50 per 
cent of the vote in the constituency. 

For that reason alone, among 
many I shall be opposing the 
Alternative Voting system (AV) 
when it is put forward by the 
coalition in a referendum next year. 

The thought that Damian should 
have to rely on votes from, say, 
UKIP or BNP supporters to get him 
past the winning post is anathema 


to me and should be to the whole 
political process. Nodding donkeys 
should not be allowed to nominate 
the winning nag after the race is 
over and the favourite is well past 
the finishing post. 

But such is coalition government 
these days that even Deputy Prime 
Minister Nick Clegg described AV 
as a disgraceful little compromise 
the other side of the general 
election. 

More importantly perhaps to 
Damian, and to voters in Folkestone 
and Hythe, I hope they will all be 
opposing a reduction in the number 
of MPs from 650 to 600. 

We already have a ludicrous 
situation here in Folkestone and 
Hythe that means our Member of 
Parliament not only represents the 


whole of the Shepway District 
Council area but also part of Ashford 
DC area in Saxon Shore ward. 

If the numbers of MPs are now 
to be reduced and the boundaries 
redrawn, how soon before we are 
taken over by Damian Green MP 
for Ashford, or parts of Canterbury 
are merged with our constituency? 

Residents of Braboume Lees 
already have little in common with 
residents of Lydd in terms of 
transport and refuge collection. 

Larger constituencies across two 
or even three local authorities will 
just exaggerate and worsen those 
differences and certainly not bring 
an MP closer to their constituents. 

If the coalition is truly looking for 
cuts in the costs of governing and 
not just playing politics for the sake 
of preserving the coalition’s fig 
leaves, then firstly it should cut the 
number of peers in the House of 
Lords and not be adding to them 
with the likes of‘Two Jags’ Prescott 
or Lord of the Night Howard. 

Secondly, this government should 
tackle the absolute waste of money 
imposed upon us all by expensive 
town councils and the excessive 
number of councillors on Shepway 
council. 

When school-building projects 
from Pent Valley to Brockhill are 
being savaged, public-sector 
workers being put out of work in 
their thousands and living standards 
slashed, then locally we can no 
longer afford the luxury of town 
councils and their overpaid clerks 
for Folkestone, Hythe and Lydd. 

After that, the number of 
councillors on Shepway DC must 
also be cut and, given the 
Treasury’s recent round robin, a 
40 per cent cut in numbers from 46 
to 28 or fewer would be a good 
starting point, although doing away 
with it altogether or merging with 
Dover would be just as welcome. 

Once political parties promise 
voters referenda, then indeed they 
must honour that promise. 

That they may waste millions of 
pounds in a futile attempt to save 
their own political throats from being 
cut is one very good reason, however, 
that when referenda fail to go their 
way we should not give them the get- 
out of a five-year fixed Parliament 
to put off their day of judgement. 

Donald Worsley, 
Shepway and Hythe Labour Party 

Amalgamation only 
way for councils to go 

Twenty-five per cent cuts? 

Forty per cent cuts? When the 
effects of these hit home, they will 
not be ‘fair’. 

Combine the cuts with council 
tax being frozen, how can our 
four district councils survive and 
provide the public service required 
on their own? 

They must amalgamate into an 
east Kent council to benefit from 
the economies of scale. 

When the cuts hit home, an east 
Kent council will be very appealing. 

Unfortunately, we the public only 
start to react or complain when the 
manure has hit the fan. 

Hopefully, this time it’s sooner 
rather than later. 

Reg Hansell, Shepherdswell

Figures show horror of 
youngsters' rail crimes 





DANGEROUS: A youth is caught on a wire above a live track; the potentially lethal damage caused by throwing stones 


Kiwi-growers wait 
for fruits of labours 

EXPERIMENTS are taking place in a 
secret location in the county to see if kiwi 
fruit can be grown in Kent. 

A company with a base in Canterbury 
is working to harness recent climate 
change to grow the popular fruit and tap 
into the annual market, which is worth 
£20 million in the UK. 

Now technicians at Worldwide Fruits 
have started tests at an east Kent loca¬ 
tion to see if the fruit can be produced in 
sufficient quantities here to make it com¬ 
mercially viable within two years. 

They are using a hectare’s worth of 
vines brought in from Italy and Greece 
in May and which are flourishing 
thanks to the expertise of New Zealand 
kiwi fruit-growers. 

Worldwide Fruit technical director 
Tony Harding said: “The result has been 
1,200 vines now safely in the ground. 

“The varieties planted to date have 
been green Hayward types. There are 
plans to plant in 2011 yellow-flesh kiwis 
and introduce some of the latest discov¬ 
eries, which are red-fleshed.” 

Fruit development 
technologist Caro¬ 
line Ashdown said: 

“It’s a new experi¬ 
ence for us, but 
we’re confident it 
will be successful in 
some degree as we 
understand the 
vines’ physiology.” 

Kiwi vines grow so 
fast that they are 
being trailed on 
wires strung across 
concrete supports. 

Harvesting is expected to take place in 
October. 


■ BY MARIJKE COX 

TRAIN-surfing, jumping on tracks 
and playing ‘chicken’ with 100- 
tonne trains are just some of the 
shocking games played by young 
people on railways every week in 
Kent. 

And if they’re not playing on the railway line, 
they’re throwing things on it, with objects as 
strange as a kitchen sink being found on tracks. 

The Network Rail findings showed 240 rail 
crimes were carried out in the past year, but the 
true figure is believed to be much higher. 

Dave Ward, the company’s route director in 
Kent, said the figures were down from last year 
but too many were still risking their lives. 

“Trains can’t swerve and can take the length 
of 20 football pitches to stop,” he said. “Contact 
with electricity power lines and tracks can 
result in horrific injuries, bums or even death.” 

Crimes can involve distracting train-drivers, 
with laser-pens being shone in their eyes and 
bricks and fireworks being hurled at trains. 

Young people have also been caught ‘train¬ 
surfing’, where they grip on to the outside of a 
moving train, or playing ‘chicken’, where they 
jump out of the way just before it hits them. 

Bikes, gas cylinders, scaffolding, a pram and 


traffic lights have all been thrown on to tracks 
in Kent, causing costly damage and delays. 

As the summer holidays begin, Network Rail 
is asking young people not to put themselves at 
risk by playing near the tracks. 

The company’s No Messin’ campaign, fronted 
by boxer Amir Khan, works with community 
groups to warn youngsters about the dangers. 

Khan is encouraging young people to take up 
positive activities. “They need to know that play¬ 
ing chicken or throwing stones at trains won’t 
get you respect or win you friends,” he said. 

The shocking figures showed 63 incidents of 
objects being thrown at trains, 92 reports of 
trespass and 15 incidents of graffiti. 


Insp Ed Walton from the British Transport 
Police said: “Every year we see people risking 
their lives either by careless action, such as tak¬ 
ing a short-cut across tracks or by playing on or 
near the line,” he said. 

“Anyone who messes around near the tracks 
is not only risking a court appearance, they are 
putting their lives at risk.” 

Ben Lavender, 17, was killed in April 2009 at 
Westgate-on-Sea station when he fell on a live 
line as he crossed the tracks. 

Jade Kenyon, 17, from Snodland, died in 2006 
after touching a live rail as she walked along 
the tracks after missing a train at Cuxton 
station near Rochester.

for relaxing meal 


■ Martins 

IF you’re bored of gimmicky city 
centre restaurants, and want a 
taste of excellent cuisine in the 
heart of the countryside, then book 
a table at Martins. 

Due to popularity, a two for one offer is con¬ 
tinuing during summer - so it’s the ideal place 
to catch up with friends and family. 

What Martins has done for 21 years now, is 
combine every element on the diner’s check¬ 
list, and package it in an approachable, afford¬ 
able and enjoyable evening out. 

The restaurant, one of the longest-running 


in Kent, has a modem interior with that clas¬ 
sic countryside feel we love about Boughton. 

Gone are the hops, in are classic Parisian 
black and white portraits, and images that 
reflect the sophisticated yet friendly atmos¬ 
phere the team strives to create each and 
every evening. 

Also in is a fresh new menu, including - for 
July - summer melon, a dish of chilled melon, 
tomato and fresh mint with a vinaigrette 
dressing, and chicken Veronique, served in 
white wine and grape sauce. 

All meals are freshly prepared on the night 
too, using the finest ingredients, locally 
sourced where possible. So whether it’s a 
romantic meal for two, a birthday party, wed¬ 
ding reception, or any other excuse, Martin’s 


guarantees the elegance of London, in the 
heart of the garden of England. 

If you are a bit indecisive when your menu 
arrives, then our Friday night carvery is ideal. 

A spectacular array of fresh seafood, salads, 
roast meats and vegetables means that you 
can create your own starter and main course 
for just £14.50. Simple, yet hugely satisfying. 

For a look at our monthly set menu or a la 
carte menu, see our website, www.martin-

The restaurant is open from Tuesday to 
Saturday evenings from 7pm, last orders 
10pm, and Sunday lunches from noon, last

A warm welcome 
waits on Common 


■ Rose and Crown 

THE Rose and Crown, Stelling 
Minnis, is a country pub with a 
friendly atmosphere. 

In the heart of the countryside it is especial¬ 
ly attractive in summer. 

The pub now has free Wi Fi which makes it 
ideal for business lunches, but it is also a great 
place to meet friends on a summer evening. 

Currently popular on the menu are salmon 
and sweet potato fishcakes with a sweet chilli 
dip as well as ploughmans or a warm chicken 
and bacon salad. 

Tofee and hazelnut pavlova is a popular 


dessert choice with diners at the moment. 

A fine selection of beers, including Bate¬ 
mans XB, Moorhouses Blonde Witch and 
Flowers IPA, complements the food. 

The pub has a very attractive location on the 
edge of Stelling Minnis Common, which is one 
of the few remaining unclosed commons in the 
South East so popular with walkers. 

The Rose and Crown is as fine an example of 
an English country inn as it is possible to find, 
and all produce is locally sourced. 

Food is available seven days a week for 
lunch and from 7pm to 9pm on Tuesdays, 
Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturday evenings. 

Thursdays dinner hours are 6pm to 9pm

JOE PASQUALE 

Friday, August 6, Winter Gardens, Margate 

THE King of the Jungle is ready to 
drive you wild with his latest show 
full of comedy and calamities. 

Joe Pasquale continues his personal quest to 
make holidaymakers laugh by taking his new 
show to seaside towns around the country. 
Just Joe is his latest collection of comic capers, 
slightly duff magic and Pasquale’s trademark 
silliness, designed to get audiences giggling, 
whatever the British summer weather. 

Last year’s fast-paced show featured a 
motorised toilet, so fans can look forward to 
another evening of wacky props and goofy 
gags. Pasquale’s latest gadgets can be as 
unpredictable as his humour and could be one 
reason why the comedian has won an increas¬ 
ing student following. 

Bom in Essex, Pasquale harboured early 
desires to become an actor, but he could not 
afford to go to drama school. So he tried to get 
into show business another way, by becoming 
a bingo caller and a holiday camp entertainer. 
He rose up the ranks to become entertainment 
manager at two resorts and eventually discov¬ 
ered his gift for comedy. 

By the time Pasquale appeared on the TV 
talent show New Faces in 1987, he had also 
worked in the civil service, a Ford factory and 
Smithfields meat market. Achieving second 
place on the show meant that work as a come¬ 
dian started to come in, liberating Pasquale 
from some of his less enjoyable jobs. 

When Pasquale really hit the big time, his 
first video sold in huge numbers and he 
became a popular television personality. His 
distinctive high-pitched voice has only added 
to his endearing persona and along with his 
comedy work, he also became a successful 
game show host. 

Although he was already a popular and well- 
known comic, Pasquale’s career received a fur¬ 
ther boost when he appeared on the ITV real¬ 
ity show I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! 
in 2004. 

The bookies’ favourite from the start, 
Pasquale did not disappoint viewers with his 
charming nature and good sense of humour, 
which even held during the most tortuous 
Bush Tucker tasks. While other celebrities 
complained about the primitive jungle condi¬ 
tions, Pasquale’s quips consistently won the 
viewers’ votes. 

In the final stages, he saw off competition 
from former royal butler Paul Burrell to be 
crowned King of the Jungle. 

His experiences in the jungle had more far- 
reaching consequences than anyone might 
have expected. One of the Bush Tucker Trials 
involved dangling from a helicopter in mid-air, 
while trying to obtain stars to win meals for 
his fellow contestants. This hair-raising ordeal 
actually helped Pasquale overcome his fear of 
flying and he went on to gain his pilot’s licence 


after taking lessons at Rochester Airport. 

Despite his enormous success as a comedian, 
Pasquale has still managed to follow his 
dream of becoming an actor. His stage projects 
have included numerous pantomimes and he 
appeared in the West End production of The 
Producers. 

His unforgettable voice has also been heard 
in animations such as Hollywood movie 


Horton Hears A Who! with Jim Carrey and 
CBBC’s Frankestein’s Cat. Pasquale has also 
appeared as the Scarecrow in a touring pro¬ 
duction of The Wizard of Oz. 

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost 
£16.50, concessions available for Friends of the 
Winter Gardens. To book call the box office on 
01843 292795/296111 or go online at 
www.margatewintergardens.co.uk.

ARCHERY SCHOOL AND KNIGHT SCH000L 

Various dates, Canterbury Tales, Canterbury 


LEARN the ways of the past as 
historical experts take up resi¬ 
dence at Canterbury Tales. 

On Wednesdays throughout 
August, visitors can learn about 
life in medieval England and try 
their hand at the ancient skills 
of archery and sword fighting. 

On August 4 and 18, join the 
Archery School and see if your 
aim is strong and true. In early 
medieval times, it was decreed 
that every man and boy in 
England should practise with 
the long bow during his free 
time. Visitors aged from seven 
upwards can join the trained 
instructors to try out this time- 


honoured pursuit and see 
whether they could have passed 
as an Agincourt archer or 
Norman invader. 

Learn to wield a sword by join¬ 
ing the Knight School on August 
11 and 25. The knight and his 
unarmed squire will demon¬ 
strate the combat techniques of 
the day and expose a few myths 
about medieval armour. 

The special events are includ¬ 
ed in the admission price of 
£7.75 for adults, £5.75 for chil¬ 
dren and £6.75 for concessions. 

For more information call 
01227 784600 or see the website 
at www.canterburytales.org.uk.

Janine. In September, they will

Chic at the Indigo2, so soul fans 
should not miss the chance to 
see these rising stars in action. 


The award-winning R&B 
artist Junior Giscombe will also

mer Hi Tension member, David 
Joseph. Giscombe was a pop 
force during the 80s when he

Say and Too Late. He duetted

(Closer To You) and went on to 
write songs for artists like 
Sheena Easton. 

The free entertainment starts

Sunday. For more details visit

WIDOWER'S HOUSES 

Thursday, July 29, Saturday, July 31, and Sunday, August 1 
Memorial Theatre, Broadstairs 

MONEY and principles do not always mix in George 
Bernard Shaw’s sharp satire, Widowers’ Houses. 

The first play in the Sarah Thome Summer 
Repertory Season explores the Victorian money¬ 
making system and the ways in which money 
can interfere with love and romance. Directed by 
Michael Friend, the play has been performed for 
nearly 120 years. 

Harry Trench is a doctor with a good background 
but only a small income. However, his life seems to be 
taking a positive turn when he falls in love with the 
beautiful Blanche while on holiday in Germany and 
they become engaged. 

On their return to London, Harry is horrified to dis¬ 
cover that Blanche’s father is the landlord of slum 
housing. He orders Blanche to refuse her father’s 
money once they are married, but his principles are 
soon put to the test when he discovers where his own 
meagre income is coming from. 

Tickets cost £10.50 for Sarah Thome Theatre Club 
members and £12.50 for non-members, who must 
book at least 24 hours in advance, call 0845 262 6263 
or email info@sarahthome-theatreclub.co.uk. 





ALICE IN WONDERLAND 

Friday and Saturday, July 30-31, Dragon House, Smarden 

DISAPPEAR down the rabbit hole and spend the evening 
in Wonderland with the Smarden Players. 

The group presents an adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s 
classic stories, Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the 
Looking Glass, performed outdoors in the gardens of 
Dragon House. With a 50ft stage, impressive set design 
and special effects, the Smarden Players present a magi¬ 
cal show that will enchant audiences of all ages. 

Some of the most exciting elements of the show include 
the ‘rabbit hole’ entrance which guides audiences to their 
seats and the mysterious, disappearing Cheshire Cat. The 
voice of the cat is provided by former Meridian TV 
reporter, Jeff Moody. 

Derek Colley’s adaptation of the much-loved stories 
includes many of Wonderland’s most popular residents. 
For this production, a slightly older Alice will guide the 
audience through the story and there are plenty of sur¬ 
prises in store. 

Tickets cost £7/£5 on Friday and £7 on Saturday. To 
avoid disappointment, buy tickets in advance from the 
Post Office or the Flying Horse in Smarden or alternative¬ 
ly call 01233 770557. 



UNDER SIEGE 

Saturday, July 31, and Sunday, August 1 
Dover Castle 

EXPERIENCE the drama of a castle under 
attack when history comes to life at Dover 
Castle this weekend. 

In 1216, Dover defended the country 
against a French attack which became the 
scene of one of England’s bloodiest battles. 
This critical event in English history is 
recreated in spectacular style, when a 
thrilling medieval siege is recreated at 
the attraction. 

Feel the atmosphere and learn how the 
army prepared for combat with this absorb¬ 
ing event, which features an authentic army 
encampment. Throughout the day, minor 
skirmishes will break out as the tension 
builds towards the mighty battle on Palace 
Green. See the knights and foot soldiers 
engage in combat, along with the French 
attackers’ attempts to undermine the Great 
Tower by digging a tunnel. The French 
troops will also use a terrifying trebuchet to 
attack the castle. 

Hubert De Burgh will lead King John’s 
defence from the Great Tower, where visi¬ 
tors can meet the colourful King’s household 
and find out what life was like under siege.

After years of bit-part roles Justin 
proves he's not on The Rebound 



THE SENSITIVE TYPE: Justin Bartha plays children's nanny Aram Finkelstein in the romantic comedy The Rebound 


■ BY SUSAN GRIFFIN 


TWELVE years ago he was playing 
roles that didn’t even appear on 
the movie’s closing credits. But 
now, Justin Bartha - aka the 
anonymous clubgoer in the 1998 
disco film 54 - has reached leading 
man status with his latest movie 
The Rebound. 

Along the way there have been hits 
(National Treasure, The Hangover) and miss¬ 
es (Gigli), but 32-year-old Bartha says he feels 
“extremely grateful for all the great things 
that have happened”. 

The first of his family to forge a career in act¬ 
ing, started out in high-school plays and doing 
community theatre, before training at univer¬ 
sity in New York only to find himself “bum¬ 
ming around trying to get a job”. 

That first job was behind the camera, as a 
production assistant on Analyze This in 1999. 
Later that year, he made his professional act¬ 
ing debut in a short film called Tag. A few 
quiet years followed before he joined the then 
couple-du-jour Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez 
in the universally panned Gigli in 2003. Then 
a year later, he finally got his big break as the 
comedic computer whiz Riley Poole in the 
National Treasure films. 

In romantic comedy The Rebound Bartha 
plays Aram Finkelstein, a directionless 24- 
year-old who becomes a nanny for Sandy, the 
perfect suburban wife, played by Catherine 
Zeta Jones, who’s just discovered her husband 
has been having an affair. The pair embark on 
a relationship that goes swimmingly until 
reality rears its ugly head. 

“It’s a really great romantic comedy and 
something everyone can enjoy,” says Bartha. 

“It’s a New York love story where Catherine 
and myself have just got out of bad relation¬ 
ships but find it’s the wrong time to explore 
theirs because of their ages and where they 


are in their life.” 

Written and directed by Julianne Moore’s 
husband Bart Freundlich, Aram’s optimistic 
and romantic stance on life makes him a 
refreshingly sympathetic male character. 

“Aram is a nice guy and there’s some role 
reversal in the movie,” says Bartha. ‘You’re so 
used to seeing men in movies being aggressive 
idiots who are only looking for sex. Aram is a 
sensitive man and that’s really interesting. 
He’s almost too sensitive.” 

But, despite Bartha’s eagerness, it was to be 
a few years before he was cast. 

Director Freundlich has since explained that 


he needed to explore a wide range of people to 
be sure Bartha was the right choice - and 
Bartha readily admits he thought he wouldn’t 
get the role after hearing Catherine Zeta 
Jones had been cast as Sandy. 

As for working with our home-grown star, 
Bartha’s nothing short of gushing. “She’s fan¬ 
tastic. Who doesn’t like her?” 

It’s lucky they got along, as the pair share an 
intimate moment on a sofa before being inter¬ 
rupted by Sandy’s son. 

“It’s very awkward doing those scenes,” he 
laughs. “In that scene I have to fall off this 
couch and kept scraping my chest, so by the 



end of the day I had this rash on it. It was very 
‘not sexy’.” 

Another scene that creates a big laugh hap¬ 
pens when Aram takes Sandy on a date to see 
his best friend’s amateur dramatic showcase, 
which turns out to consist of 46 theatrical 
scenes - with no interval. 

“What’s funny is that it seems like such a 
comedy scene but acting workshops really are 
like that,” he says. “I’ve been to tons of them.”

WATCHING THE DETECTIVE: Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman 


YOUR TV REVIEW SHERLOCK: BBC One, 9pm, Sunday FIFTH GEAR: Five, 7.30pm, Thursday 


WITH autumn approaching, the 
schedules will soon be full of new 
shows hoping to grab your attention 
for the remainder of the year. 

Sherlock is the BBC’s highest-pro- 
file effort. 

Whether or not the decision to 
bring Sherlock Holmes back was 
based on the success of the recent 
film is not something I can enlighten 
you on, but it’s an interesting point. 

Curiosity in the character has no 
doubt been revived due to Guy 
Ritchie’s film adaptation, but rather 
than set this in days past it has been 
dragged kicking and screaming into 
the present day. 

Holmes is now a man who surfs 
the net and has Dr Watson on speed- 
dial. 

There’s a fantastic iPhone applica¬ 
tion that lets you download a whole 
collection of the Sir Arthur Conan 


■ BY TOM BETTS 


Doyle-penned Holmes books for free, 
so I took a look earlier this year. 

Holmes is really not the straight- 
laced deer-stalker-wearing square he 
is often played as. 

In fact he is a much spikier pedant 
than you would think, so choosing 
the angular Benedict Cumberbatch 
as the man to play the super-sleuth 
could turn out to be a good move. 

Meanwhile, Martin Freeman steps 
into faithful companion Dr Watson’s 
shoes. 

Brought to you by two of the men 
behind the Doctor Who revival, 
expect this to be the next big thing, 
or to sink without a trace. 

AS Top Gear grows ever more fanci¬ 
ful and has less to do with motoring 


with each passing episode, the driver 
who is actually interested in cars 
would be forgiven for switching to 
Fifth Gear instead. 

This is not the new kid on the 
block, and has actually been around 
since 2002, but adheres more to the 
style of old Top Gear, rather than the 
re-launched ego fest of Clarkson, 

May and Hammond. 

This show actually road tests cars 
the average man may actually one 
day have a chance of driving, and 
touches more on the issues that con¬ 
cern your average motorist. 

It is probably not as funny or enter¬ 
taining as Top Gear, but copying the 
old format of its rival (old TG presen¬ 
ters Tiff Needel and Vicky Butler- 
Henderson are employed here), 
which looked like a dumb move in 
the early days, has actually turned 
out to be its biggest strength.

Home-grown acts 
create a great day 



ROCK ON: Coronal were one of many great acts at Create Music Festival 


■ BY DOMINIC GREENWOOD 


UPLOAD YOUR MUSIC VIDEOS TO 
BROADCAST ON OUR WEBSITE @ 


OFFERING everything from 
cheesy covers to crashing guitars, 
Create Music Festival kept thou¬ 
sands entertained in Ashford’s 
Victoria Park on Sunday. 

With an incredible 11,000 peo¬ 
ple through the gate, Create has 
become the county’s leading free 
festival, a feat made all the more 
impressive by the fact that nearly 
every band on the line-up was 
home-grown. 

The festival boasted extra 
stages this year with an acoustic 
tent, a dance tent and the 
Right Track Music stage for 
younger bands. 

For the first time it also offered 
a bar, and as the threatened rain 
held off many enjoyed a cold beer 
in the sun in front of the 
main stage. 

Many of Kent’s best-known acts 
made an appearance, many of 
which have already enjoyed a 
busy festival season. 

Luke Jackson, a singer-song- 
writer whose talents belie his 
years, and ‘unhinged’ folk act Los 
Salvadores have both already 
played sets at Canterbury’s 
Lounge on the Farm, and both 
put in a spirited performance at 
Create on the acoustic and main 
stage respectively. 

Other highlights included 
Ashford metal band Coronal, 
whose charismatic frontman suc¬ 
ceeded in firing up the crowd 
throughout the band’s brutal 
half-hour set. 

Many acts peppered their sets 
with covers, which was appreciat¬ 
ed by those looking for a hint of 
familiarity. 

Five Floors Up were particular¬ 
ly good in this respect, and 
headliners Green Date, a convinc¬ 
ing Green Day tribute band, 
rounded off the event with an 
effective trawl through the 
Californian three-piece’s back 
catalogue. 

Organiser Chris Dixon from 
Ashford council said: "Create 
2010 has been phenomenal, and 
no doubt the best yet. It is amaz¬ 
ing what can be achieved when 
local talent, audiences, event

organisers, local businesses and 
local sponsors all work together 
to deliver something as positive 
as this for our community - 
Ashford can be very proud of 
itself this week. 

“After every Create, you always 
feel so exhausted you can n

but after seeing so many 
smiling faces and families getting

say Create will be back for

HIGH OLD TIME: Kitzbuhel in the Austrian Tyrolean has an adventurous side away from its more well-known skiing and snowboarding activities

Adventurous pursuits on

Richard Jones was a guest of Crystal Lakes & 
Mountains, which offers seven nights' half-board at 
Hotel Jagerwirt in Kitzbuhel from £639. Thomson 
Lakes has an Austrian Adventure package based on 
the Mountain High Adventure Centre, Kirchdorf, 
from £645, including flights ex-Gatwick, transfers, 
and seven nights' half-board accommodation. 



WHILE glitzy KitzbiiheTs 
infrastructure is perfectly 
prepared for the deluge of 
skiers and snowboarders, 
there is a very different feel 
to the area come summer. 

When the hedonism and intensity 
of the ski season has melted away, 
visitors relish the gorgeous scenery 
and, even better, try the variety of 
adventurous pursuits on offer in the 
area. 

I began my four-day break on the 
Saturday evening, and checked into 
what would be my base for the trip - 
the four-star Hotel Jagerwirt, run by 
the same family for four generations. 

The first dinner for our 10-strong 
group was a hearty combination of 
lamb, potato gratin and spinach, 
before a nightcap at Flannigan’s, the 
local Irish bar. 

Next morning, the minibus whisked 
us off to the Mountain High centre 
in Kirchdorf - to be measured for 
wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets for 
our first activity - the family rafting. 

Our time in the 12ft x 6ft raft was 
great fun, and the highlight was 
jumping out of the vessel to float 
down through the rapids on our 
backs, before climbing out and jump¬ 
ing from a cliff face into a plunge pool. 

The rafting course took us into a 
part of Germany for a short while, 
through the wildly romantic Klob- 
enstein Canyon, until the minibus 
came to collect our equipment and 
return us back to Mountain High. 

After lunch, we took the five- 
minute walk from the hotel to the 
Mountain Edge bike centre. 

Our guide Rob provided helmets, 
gloves and bikes, before leading us 


on a specially tailored ride to the 
lake at Schwarzsee, a haven for local 
holidaymakers on this particular 
weekend - a Tyrolean bank holiday 
with the sun shining. 

There was an Italian buffet at the 
Jagerwirt on Sunday night, while 
Monday morning promised our third 
activity of the week- canyoning. This 
was not for the faint-hearted, and four 
of our group backed out when peer¬ 
ing over the edge of the gorge. 

But those of us who stuck with it 
were rewarded with an hour of 
sheer excitement involving slither¬ 
ing down rockslides carved into the 
rock, jumping into frothing plunge 
pools, hanging from cliff faces, and 
floating down through ice-cold water 
on our backs until we reached the 
rest of our party at the base. 

After the adrenaline rush of the 
morning, it was time for a gentle 


three-hour walk through farms, 
forests and flowery meadows and up 
to a waterfall on the south side of 
the Kitzbuheler Horn, which offered 
us excellent views across the town. 

After a dinner of Wiener Schnitzel, 
a few of us embarked on a night out 
in Kitz, stumbling from the town’s 
main nightspot, The Londoner bar - 
jam-packed to the rafters during ski 
season - in the early hours. 

There were sore heads next day as 
we tried Canadian canoeing. Though 
the canoes were safe and stable, 
steering them proved difficult and 
we had countless collisions with the 
rocky banks and capsizes galore. 

While we were on the river, the 
under-14s on our trip had a swim 
and splash around in a nearby lake. 

The farmers’ buffet at the 
Jagerwirt was the perfect way to 
round off our week in Austria.

Landlords facing mortgage 
woes if interest rate rises 



BALANCING ACT: Many UK landlords would face a rent-mortgage shortfall if the interest rate rose by two per cent 


PROPERTY NEWS 

First-time buyers key to 
getting market moving 

HOUSE prices fell last month, with 
Halifax’s house price index showing a 0.6 
per cent drop and the LSL/Acadametrics 
index showing prices decreasing by 0.5 
per cent. 

But LSL/Acadametrics reports a 7.7 
per cent year-on-year rise in prices, with 
Halifax showing a 6.3 per cent rise. 

Analysts say the average property 
price in England and Wales is £218,119. 

Martin Ellis, housing economist at 
Halifax, said: “The June price fall contin¬ 
ued the trend of a slowdown seen since the 
beginning of this year, following a moder¬ 
ate recovery in 2009. This pattern is in 
line with our view that prices will remain 
pretty much unchanged this year.” 

LSL/Acadametrics also reveals a 20 
per cent jump in the number of proper¬ 
ties sold to 63,500 in June - up from 
52,975 in May. 

David Brown, commercial director at 
LSL Property Services, says the key to a 
market recovery lies with first-time buy¬ 
ers. But he adds: ‘We can’t discount fur¬ 
ther prices falls in the next few months 
as the market continues to stabilise.” 

And Peter Williams, chairman of 
Acadametrics, says traditionally the 
number of houses sold in June is higher 
than in May. 

He said: “This year sales in May were 
abnormally low, possibly owing to uncer¬ 
tainty as a consequence of the election.” 

Study shows seven-year 
low for mortgage rates 

MORTGAGE rates are at their lowest for 
seven years, according to new research. 

The study by Moneyfacts.co.uk found 
the average interest-rate on a two-year 
fixed rate mortgage is 4.52 per cent the 
lowest since September 2003. 

Interest rates on fixed rate mortgages 
have been dropping since September 
last year, as lenders attempt to entice 
borrowers away from low standard vari¬ 
able rates (SVRs). 

“Many borrowers are opting to remain 
on record low SVRs and overpaying their 
mortgage rather than secure a new deal 
at a higher rate,” said Michelle Slade, 
Moneyfacts.co.uk spokesperson. 

“Lenders are trying to persuade bor¬ 
rowers onto new fixed rate deals by mak¬ 
ing significant cuts to rates. 

“Previously, only deals for borrowers 
with large deposits were seeing cuts, but 
as the market improves borrowers with 
smaller deposits are being offered more 
competitive deals too.” 



■ BY NICK AMES 


FOUR out of ten landlords reckon 
they would not be able to cover the 
mortgage payments on their prop¬ 
erties if interest rates increase by 
two per cent. 

A fortnight ago the Bank of England held 
the base rate at 0.5 per cent for the 16th con¬ 
secutive month, which is just as well as 
according to a poll by flat share website 
Spareroom.co.uk, who discovered four out of 
ten UK landlords are receiving rents barely 
covering the monthly mortgage repayments 
on their properties. 

For 22 per cent of respondents, a rate rise of 
just one per cent would mean the sums don’t 
add up, and for ten per cent of landlords ques¬ 
tioned the situation is far worse, with a rate 
rise of just 0.5 per cent resulting in a rent- 
mortgage shortfall. 

The research also revealed that six out of ten 
landlords have been forced to hike monthly 
rents since the start of the year, with one in 
five planning to increase rents by five per cent 
this year, and 18 per cent factoring in an 
increase of between three and five per cent. 

However, more than half of these landlords 
said they are worried that they could lose loyal 
and valuable tenants as a result. 

Spareroom.co.uk director Matt Hutchinson 
describes Britain’s landlords in a catch-22 sit¬ 
uation. 

He said: “On the one hand the rise in Capital 
Gains Tax for higher rate taxpayers means 
that many landlords either won’t be able to 
sell their buy-to-let properties full-stop or will 
sell at a far greater loss. “At the same time, 
holding onto their properties means they are 


at the mercy of the Bank of England and fac¬ 
ing higher mortgage payments.” 

Some landlords have also expressed confu¬ 
sion over the concept of ‘fair wear and tear’ 
which has prompted tenancy deposit protec¬ 
tion scheme, mydeposits.co.uk, to create a 
guide for landlords offering advice on how to 
make a sound judgement call at the end of a 
tenancy period. 

As there are no hard and fast rules on what is 
reasonable for wear and tear the new guide 


aims to help landlords weigh up the different 
factors involved in the decision-making process. 

A number of areas, from the length of the 
tenancy period to the occupants themselves 
and the difference between wear and tear and 
damage, are explored. 

The guide also highlights the importance of 
communication between landlord and tenant, 
particularly at the outset of the tenancy, when 
the landlord can set expectations of the ten¬ 
ants and the final condition of the property. 


Energy-efficient homes to miss stamp penalty 



HOMEOWNERS are being 
advised to make their homes 
more energy efficient before 
putting them on the market if 
proposed stamp duty penalties 
come into force. 

Ministers are examining intro¬ 
ducing an increase in stamp duty 
for homes which fall into the 
lowest efficiency bands. 

According to one home energy 
expert, buyers could be put off 
purchasing homes with poor 
energy efficiency to avoid paying 
an extra 0.5 per cent on top of 
their stamp duty bill. 

Marc Blomfield, managing direc¬ 
tor of The National EPC Company, 
a leading provider of Energy 


Performance Certificates (EPCs) 
said: “Millions of homes with poor 
insulation, draughty windows 
and inefficient boilers could be 
subject to the stamp duty penalty, 
potentially putting off buyers. 

“Despite scrapping home infor¬ 
mation packs, the Government 
has signalled its intention to 
increase household energy effi¬ 
ciency by retaining the EPC as 
a required marketing tool. 

“The stamp duty penalty would 
be a further incentive for home- 
owners to make energy saving 
improvements to their homes 
and would be a part of the pro¬ 
posed Green Deal initiative, 
which includes measures to help 


homeowners pay for efficiency 
improvements.” 

The stamp duty penalty sugges¬ 
tion was included in a report com¬ 
missioned by former Chancellor 
Alastair Darling and could be 
tied in with a package of energy 
saving incentives. 

Marc Blomfield added: “The 
Government is committed to 
reducing carbon dioxide emis¬ 
sions and sees households as the 
major target. More than 40 per 
cent of the UK’s C02 emissions 
result from choices people make 
as individuals, with the majority 
coming from the home.”

CRICKET 


I BY DAVID PRITCHARD 


Kent League Division One 

Whitstable 1st XI v Sandwich Town 1st XI 

THE Division One title race took a twist at 
the Belmont on Saturday as Sandwich Town 
boosted their promotion hopes with a seven- 
wicket win against rivals Whitstable. 

The result saw Town move up into second place just six 
points behind leaders Sibton Park, while simultaneous¬ 
ly damaging their opponents’ chances. 

Sandwich skipper Matthew van Poppel’s decision to 
bowl after winning the toss immediately paid dividends 
as openers Max Campbell and Seth Simmons fell to 
Craig Spanton cheaply. 

Whitstable patiently batted their way back into the 
game. Sam Denly (74) and James Loader (65) shared a 
stand of 106 for the fourth wicket, although neither could 
score quickly enough to set up a big total. A flurry of wick¬ 
ets fell late on in an effort to accelerate the innings, but 
they could only reach 199 for 7 from their 50 overs. 

Sandwich have become adept at chasing totals this 
season and they again impressed. They did not have it 
all their own way as Whitstable made a good start, with 
Campbell taking two early wickets. 

The visitors then took over. Craig Snell (51) and 
Vishaul Singh (74 not out) batted well to ease Sandwich 
into a position of control until the former was caught by 
David Draper. 

The wicket proved to be a mixed blessing for 
Whitstable, as Snell was replaced by Oliver Robinson. 
The number five was in a destructive mood and proceed¬ 
ed to smash 54 off just 28 deliveries to bring up the vic¬ 
tory after just 31 overs. 

Sandwich are at home to fourth-placed Beckenham on 
Saturday.

LOCAL CRICKET ROUND-UP 


KENT LEAGUE DIVISION ONE 

Folkestone 1st XI v Harvel 1st XI 

DESPITE Himanshu Waingarkar hitting a century 
Folkestone missed out as they could only claim a winning 
draw against basement strugglers Harvel. 

Needing a victory to enhance their fading chances of 
promotion, the hosts lost both openers before they could 
make an impact. Waingarkar found form to hit his first 
century of the season and his 110 not out was crucial as 
Folkestone closed on 232 for 6. 

Harvel had only won once in the league this season and 
were staring at another defeat as they slipped to 90 for 6, 
but Folkestone's bowlers could not finish the job.

KENT LEAGUE DIVISION ONE 
2ND XI 

Sibton Park 2nd XI v Hartley 2nd XI 

A POOR display with the bat saw Sibton Park 2nds lose to 
Hartley 2nds by 49 runs to slip out of the promotion places. 

Few would have expected such a result after Hartley's 
innings as they were bowled out for 208 in the final over. 
David Stewart was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4 for 44, 
while impressive fielding also accounted for three run-outs. 

Park's reply began badly, with Daniel Lodge dismissed for 
just a single, while Joe Fowler and Andrew Arter followed 
for ducks. Ryan Currie (31) and Stewart Murrell (47) briefly 
revived the hosts' hopes, but they were all out well short.

KENT LEAGUE DIVISION ONE 

Beckenham 1st XI v Hythe 1st XI 

AN OBDURATE batting display from Hythe's tail-enders 
avoided defeat, despite being outplayed by Beckenham 
who could only finish with a winning draw. 

Daniel Patching took two wickets early on, but an 
unbeaten century from Johan Malcolm spearheaded a 
strong batting display as the hosts posted 246 for 6. 

Victory would have taken Hythe clear of the relegation 
zone and they made a good start. Lochan Blunden (50) 
and Leon Morgan (41) gave them hope of an away win, 
but wickets fell too regularly and only a spirited effort 
from Patching and Jago Pearson saw them avoid defeat.

KENT LEAGUE DIVISION FOUR 

Betteshanger Colliery Welfare 1st XI v 
Wickham Park 1st XI 

AN EXCELLENT all-round performance saw Betteshanger 
Colliery Welfare emphatically beat Wickham Park by 
107 runs. 

Chris Garton and Clive Towe set the tone for the match 
as they hit half-centuries to get the hosts away to a good 
start. Liam Collins (69) then picked up the mantle and an 
attacking innings from Joffy Towe allowed Betteshanger 
to declare five overs early. 

Wickham Park's innings was a mixed bag, but 
Betteshanger's bowling unit put them under pressure 
throughout. The wickets were shared between six bowlers, 
with Liam Collins wrapping up victory with time to spare.

Hayes looks to widen his 
options for new season 





■ BY TOM HOWARD 


STRENGTHENING down the 
flanks remains the top priority for 
Dover boss Martin Hayes as he 
continues to shape his side for the 
new season. 

The Whites boss completed his first new 
signings last week with the capture of striker 
Ben Hunt, midfielder Sam Cutler and defend¬ 
er Dean Hill, but Hayes’ next task is to increase 
the side’s attacking threat on the wings. 

As it stands Dover have only one out-and- 
out winger on contract in James Rogers. 

Hayes has been keen to add to his wide 
options ever since he joined the club and is 
speaking to a number of players. 

Former Bromley midfielder Luke I’Anson 
has featured on the wing in three of the four 
pre-season friendlies and is someone the 
Dover boss is contemplating offering a deal to. 

Hayes said: “The players we are talking to 
are dragging their heels at the moment and 
we’re still awaiting answers from them. 

“We do need to strengthen the flanks because 
we are a bit fragile in that department. I hope 
we will have at least one of them at the club 
before Saturday’s game at Carshalton. 

“Luke is someone I would like to be able to 
do something with, but he is not an out-and- 


out winger. I see him featuring more in the 
centre of midfield if we can do a deal with him. 
At the moment he has been doing the bulk of 
the work out wide, but until we can sign a cou¬ 
ple of wingers he will stay there for the 
minute.” 

The Whites picked up their third pre-season 
win on Saturday with a 2-0 victory at Ryman 
South side Dulwich Hamlet. The visitors went 
on the attack from the outset and were 
unlucky not to open the scoring through Dean 
Hill. The defender met Rogers’ comer, but his 
header cannoned off the cross bar. 

Dover eventually took the lead early in the 
second-half through triallist Jackson Ohakam. 


A Jon Wallis comer was flicked on by Matt Fish 
before being stabbed home by Ohakam. 

Hayes’ side dominated the second-half and 
Birchall continued to threaten as his shot hit 
the base of the post. However, the former 
Arsenal striker finished the game on the 
scoresheet when he fired a curling effort into 
the net for Dover’s second. 

Hayes said: “We got the win which is good, 
but it wasn’t our best performance. 

“Adam Birchall looked lively once again and 
continues to keep scoring, but we have slipped 
back in other areas. It’s good in a way because 
it gives us something to work on before the 
season gets properly underway.” 



RETURNING: Jimmy Dryden is 
easing his way back to fitness 


Cugley's excited by his striking options 


THE return to fitness of striker Paul 
Jones has got Folkestone Invicta 
manager Neil Cugley excited about 
his squad’s attacking potential ahead 
of the new season. 

Scoring goals was the Seasiders’ 
Achilles heel last season, but indica¬ 
tions are more encouraging this time 
around. 

Jones netted as Invicta began their 
pre-season games with a 2-1 win at 
Faversham Town last week, which 
also saw Jimmy Dryden play 30 min¬ 
utes. The former Ashford striker has 
signed on for next season and Cugley 
believes after struggling with injuries, 
the forward is in good shape to make 
an impact in the Ryman Premier. 


FOOTBALL 


He said: “Paul looked outstanding 
at Faversham, it’s the fittest I’ve seen 
him in pre-season. He’s strong, holds 
the ball up well and has impressed. 

‘We’re not going to msh Jimmy, but 
he came through it well and Simon 
Austin looks good, so suddenly it’s 
looking a bit better.” 

Scoreline 

James Everitt (back) is the only 
injury concern ahead of Saturday’s 
trip to Lordswood. 

Elsewhere, Hythe Town main¬ 
tained their 100 per cent record in 


pre-season with a 2-1 win away to 
County League outfit Hollands & 
Blair. Kieran Byrne and Craig 
Thompson were on target to follow 
up victories by the same scoreline 
against Whitstable Town and Lydd 
Town. 

Maidstone United visited 
Reachfields last night, while Hythe 
host Chatham Town this weekend. 

Deal Town recorded an impressive 
result as they beat Blue Square Bet 
South side Basingstoke Town 2-0, 
thanks to goals from Sean 
Armstrong and Mo Takaloo. 

Derek Hares’ side played 
Whitstable last night and host 
Billericay Town on Saturday.

AN OPENING SHOT: Deal golfer Karen Stupples 

Stupples opens new 
clubhouse extension 

KAREN Stupples officially opened the 
Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club Artisans’ 
section new clubhouse extension. 

The former British Women’s Open cham¬ 
pion, who is a vice-president of the Artisans’ 
club, performed the ceremony after flying in 
from her Florida home ahead of competing 
in this year’s Open, which starts at Royal 
Birkdale tomorrow. 

The Artisans’ section of Royal Cinque 
Ports in Deal was formed in 1935, after cad¬ 
dies from RCPGC challenged their counter¬ 
parts from neighbouring Royal St George’s 
to a match. 

Stupples said: “It is an honour and a priv¬ 
ilege for me to be asked to officially open 
this fantastic new clubhouse, especially as 
the Artisans club are celebrating their 75th 
anniversary this year.” 

The extension includes a new bar area, 
new changing and toilet facilities and a 
refurbished kitchen. 

Stupples warmed up for the Open by finish¬ 
ing tied for 43rd place at the Evian Masters 
in France, which finished on Sunday.
