WHAT'S ON & WATCH 


■ BY NICK AMES 


URGENT and drastic action is 
needed to save Folkestone Invicta 
FC from financial meltdown, ac¬ 
cording to an emergency statement 
from the club. 

It is believed the club faces a tax bill of about 
£100,000 which has pushed it to the brink. 

A meeting has been organised for supporters 
in the Stripes Club at the ground following 
Saturday’s match against Corinthian Casuals. 

The statement reads: “The current year has 
been been particularly difficult for Folkestone 
Invicta both on and off the field. The lack of 
effective leadership of the club last season was 
a major factor in relegation from the Premier 
Division and it was the unwillingness to seek 
confrontation on vital issues which led to a 
state of indecision on costs and expenditure.” 

The statement adds that financial decisions 
were made without full board approval and 
with unsustainable wage structures in place. 

It continues: “Matchday revenue is down by 
30 per cent over last season and an early exit 
from both cup competitions means prize 
money received has been below minimum 
expectations. 

“The directors have been constantly distract¬ 
ed in recent months by destabilising influ¬ 
ences which have conspired to thwart the 
efforts of the board in improving cash flows 
and bringing stability back to the club.” 

The club is calling on everyone interested to 
attend Saturday’s meeting at 5.30pm. 

Clive Arnold, chairman of the supporters’ 
club, said: “We have already started receiving 
donations and are considering fund-raising 
schemes, so we are relatively optimistic that 
the club can be saved.”

Plenty to enjoy 
at the literary 
extravaganza 

■ BY NICK AMES 

THE upcoming Folkestone 
Literary Festival, which 
runs from November 1-9, 
has a wide range of speak¬ 
ers and subjects - from foot¬ 
ball to bakery and the First 
World War to Will Self 

Maureen Lipman, Kate Adie and 
David Starkey are among the other 
personalities who will be taking to 
the stage. 

Roberta Spicer is festival organiser. 

“I looked at last year’s programme 
and my challenge was to better it,” 
she said. 

“So I decided to offer something 
slightly different and widen the 
scope of the event. 

“This included introducing comedy 
for the first time. ’’Performers include 
Russell Kane whose “Fakespeare” is 
set in a world where everyone in 
Southend speaks Shakespearean 
English. 

Subtitled “The Lamentable 
Tragedie of Yates’s Wine Lodge” 

Roberta said she saw it performed in 
Edinburgh. 

“I loved it and think it will be a 
great hit here,” she said. “Another of 
my passions is baking and I’ve got 
top cookery author Mary Berry down 
here. 

“Then there is sport - Les Scott 
has written a book which he promis¬ 
es will end pub arguments about 
football. 

“He’ll be appearing at Stripes bar 
which is part of Folkestone Invicta’s 



GUEST SPEAKER: Historian David Starkey 

ground with his book, End to End 
Stuff. Appropriately enough, his 
appearance is just before a game.” 

The climax of the event will see 
the Thousand Voices. These are 
choristers who will parade down the 
Road of Remembrance singing songs 
form World War One to commemo¬ 
rate the 90th anniversary of the end 
of the conflict. 

This takes place at midday on 
Sunday November 9, which is 
Remembrance Day. 

Roberta said: “The final event will 
be a 1940s themed Blitz Ball in The 
Leas Club. 

“It’s a chance to dress to impress 
and dance the night away to the 
sounds of a swing band, along with 
our very own Force’s Sweetheart.” 


Artists to revive 
postcard image 
of our seaside 

NEW creative designers have been 
contributing to a campaign to re¬ 
think the traditional bucket-and- 
spade image of seaside towns in a bid 
to attract fresh visitors. 

The second-year undergraduates 
are staging an exhibition at the IOTA 
Gallery in Margate as part of a proj¬ 
ect being run by Visit Kent to high¬ 
light the county’s coastal attractions 
from Whitstable to Dungeness. 

The ten designers’ exhibition, The 
Creative Coast will be exhibited for 
all to see at the gallery until Friday. 

Amanda Cottrell, chairman of Visit 
Kent, said: “The seaside postcard 
project is part of an ongoing cam¬ 
paign to change the perception from 
one of declining seaside resorts to one 
of an active and vibrant place to be. 

“Today’s visitors are likely to be 
found eating oysters as well as sticks 
of rock and our campaign reflects 
that rich cultural life along the Kent 
coastline. 

“There is nothing more appropriate 
than asking talented young design¬ 
ers to help us take a fresh look.” 

Andrew Jackson, tutor at the 
University for the Creative Arts in 
Rochester, led the project. 

He said: “Their brief was to produce 
strong imagery using the familiar 
seaside postcard format, and to push 
the boundaries to highlight the dif¬ 
ferent cultural activities and venues 
along the Kent coast.” 

Chitty to ride again 

CHILDREN’S movie Chitty Chitty 
Bang Bang is to be remade for a new 
generation of fans. 

The film starred Dick van Dyke as 
inventor Caractacus Potts when it 
was released in 1964. 

Now Michael G Wilson, who owns 
the rights to the story, has said a new 
version is set to be made. 

Writer Ian Fleming was inspired to 
write the book when he heard about 
the racing car constructed by Romney, 
Hythe and Dymchurch light railway 
creator Count Louis Zborowski. 


Architect's Stirling effort nets award 


ALSION Brooks Architects, the firm 
behind the design of Quarterhouse, 
Folkestone’s new arts and entertain¬ 
ment venue, have been announced 
as co-winners of the UK's premier 
architectural award, the RIBA 
Stirling Prize. 

The presentation was televised live 
on Channel 4. 

The company was awarded the 
prize for Accordia, a new housing 


scheme in Cambridge on which they 
were co-architects. 

Nick Ewbank, Director of the 
Creative Foundation commented, “We 
congratulate the Alison Brooks team 
on their outstanding 2008 Stirling 
Prize achievement, which was clearly 
won against very strong competition. 

“We are delighted such a presti¬ 
gious practice is working with us on 
the design of Quarterhouse, which 


will be Folkestone’s first major pub¬ 
lic building for decades.” 

Quarterhouse, which will be lit up 
at night, will open in Tontine Street 
in early 2009. 

The venue, which houses an audi¬ 
torium for audiences between 200 
and 500, will also contain a number 
of bars and a restaurant with office 
suites on the top floor for small 
businesses.

Call to turn 
airport Into 
aviation hnb 


Supporters of expansion outline plans 


■ BY NICK AMES 


AN aviation-themed 
business park is the way 
forward for Lydd Airport, 
according to supporters 
of proposals for its ex¬ 
pansion. 

They want to attract business¬ 
es and industry to the current 
site and also increase passenger 
flights. 

Proposals for a runway exten¬ 
sion and extra facilities are cur¬ 
rently before Shepway council, 
while New Romney council has 
called for a public inquiry. 

Environmentalists remain 
opposed to the plan, saying it 
would badly hit local wildlife - 
especially birds. 

But backers say it would 
rejuvenate one of the most 
economically depressed areas of 
the county. 

The new managing director of 
the airport is a former senior 
RAF officer who served in the 


First Gulf War and reached the 
rank of Air Marshall. 

Clifford Spink took over the 
reins earlier this month after 
Zaher Deir stepped down follow¬ 
ing a boardroom disagreement. 

“My vision is to develop the 
airport in partnership with the 
local area,” he said. 

“I want it to become a business 
centre for aviation. 

“We have seen £20 million 
already invested and now I want 
to see it go on to the next stage. 

Opportunities 

‘While I would like to see the 
capacity here to take larger pas¬ 
senger jets - up to the size of a 
Boeing 737 - it is the commercial 
opportunities which I feel are the 
most important. 

“In recent years we have fallen 
behind other European nations 
when it comes to aviation engi¬ 
neering. 

“Here is a chance for us to 
regain ground to the great bene¬ 
fit of the local economy. 

“If we attract aviation-related 
businesses there will be a chance 


to attract skilled workers such as 
engineers to the area and then 
all the support staff which are 
necessary to do things such as 
upholster aircraft being made. 

“Attracting these businesses 
would create an expert workforce 
with a high degree of speciali¬ 
sation, which can only help the 
area. 

“Silicon Valley is a good exam¬ 
ple of where similar companies 
have all come together. 

“There is no reason we cannot 
do the same here with aviation.” 

Mr Spink - who flew a Spitfire 
from Lydd during airshows 
said he was also conscious of the 
impact more passenger flights 
would have. 

“Airports such as Heathrow 
and Gatwick are billion-pound 
businesses,” he said. 

“By expanding just a small 
amount we could get a percent¬ 
age of that. 

“It would not be huge in com¬ 
parison with the money they 
generate - but it would certainly 
make a difference to the economy 
of Lydd and Romney Marsh.”

Pleasure craft pain 
for lifeboat crews 

A RISE in the popularity of leisure 
boating has been blamed for an 
increase in lifeboat rescues. 

The RNLI launched 165 times in the 
county between January and June this 
year, compared to 142 for the same 
period last year. 

Launches made to rescue people 
travelling aboard ‘powered pleasure 
craft’ - including jet-propelled bikes 
and speedboats - saw the biggest 
increase from 39 to 55. 

Vessels with machinery failure con¬ 
tinue to account for about a third of all 
rescue missions, with 42 made in the 
first half of this year. 

RNLI east divisional inspector And¬ 
rew Ashton appealed for owners to 
take more care of their craft.

Contractors to take 
months finishing 
£47m tunnel repairs 


THE Channel Tunnel is set to 
fully reopen in mid-February next 
year after the fire in September. 

Eurotunnel has agreed con¬ 
tracts for the £47 million repairs 
to the north tunnel, and prepara¬ 
tory work has already begun 
which is expected. 

Groupe Eurotunnel chief exec¬ 
utive Jacques Gounon said: 
“Eurotunnel has retained a 
group of companies who all have 
an excellent knowledge of the 
Channel Tunnel and whose 
recognised skills can guarantee 
the safety and speed of the 
works. 

“The goal is to regain full opera¬ 
tions in the north tunnel by mid- 
February to re-establish the best 
quality of service for our many 
customers”. 

Meanwhile, Eurostar, the high¬ 
speed passenger train service 
that links the UK with the 
Continent, saw increases in both 
traveller numbers and ticket 
sales in the third quarter of 2008 


(July to September) - despite the 
fire closures. 

Eurostar carried 2.37 million 
travellers, an increase of 6.4 per 
cent against the same period last 
year. Ticket revenues rose by 2.4 
per cent to £152.3m. 

Richard Brown, chief executive 
of Eurostar, said: “High-speed 
rail continues to attract more 
travellers. 

“Eurostar’s good-value fares, fast 
city centre-to-city centre journey 
times and enjoyable onboard expe¬ 
rience are all reasons that people 
are switching to the train. 

“Eurostar’s growth in the third 
quarter is particularly encourag¬ 
ing given the incident in the 
Channel Tunnel, and that the 
comparative three-month period 
in 2007 was boosted by the Rugby 
World Cup.” 

In the first nine months of the 
year, Eurostar carried seven mil¬ 
lion travellers, up 13.9 per cent on 
last year, with ticket sales up 17.2 
per cent to £521.1M.

Entrepreneur in 
national contest 

A FOLKESTONE businessman is in the 
running for a national prize, after being 
named regional winner of the British 
Chamber of Commerce 2008 Entrep¬ 
reneur of the Year Award. 

Wayne Hodges of Red Eagle Recruit¬ 
ment Limited won the title in the compe¬ 
tition sponsored by Staples. 

Judges said the standard of entries was 
particularly impressive but that Wayne 
stood out for his drive, passion, innovative 
approach and great customer service 
ethos. 

Wayne, whose company is a member of 
Channel Chamber, said: “I’m thrilled to 
have reached the national finals. Running 
your own business is hard work but 
rewarding and receiving official recogni¬ 
tion makes it even more satisfying.” 

Wayne will now go through to the 
national finals and the chance to win 
£50,000, courtesy of Royal Bank of 
Scotland. The results will be announced at 
a Gala Dinner at the Natural History 
Museum in London on November 27. 

Blaze took three 
hours to control 

SIX fire engines and some 40 fire¬ 
fighters were called to a blaze in Tontine 
Street, Folkestone, early on Monday. 

Kent Fire and Rescue Service was 
alerted at 5.18am about a fire in a 
Chinese restaurant. 

When fire-fighters arrived the build¬ 
ing was well alight, but the flames were 
soon under control. Nearby roads were 
blocked off as crews tackled the blaze. 

About 50 per cent of the first floor was 
wrecked, along with 80 per cent of the 
second floor, but the building was unoc¬ 
cupied at the time of the fire. 

“It was all under control by 7.58am 
and no one was injured,” said a fire 
brigade spokeswoman.

Annual health check 
gives good diagnosis 


A RATING of ‘good’ for use of 
resources and ‘fair’ for quality of 
services has been given to the 
National Health Service Eastern 
and Coastal Kent Primary Care 
Trust. 

This is a distinct improvement on previous 
judgements when the equivalent ratings were 
‘fair’ and ‘poor’. 

The trust covers NHS operations and facili¬ 
ties across Shepway, Dover, TTianet, Swale, 
Ashford and Canterbury. 

Bosses said the news was “fantastic” and a 
reflection on how hard staff had worked to 
bring around the better quality of service. 

The ratings are judged by the Healthcare 
Commission’s Annual Health Check which 
assesses each NHS trust in England. 


■ BY NICK AMES 


Under examination are overall quality of care 
including safety of patients, cleanliness and 
waiting times as well as such things as how 
finances are managed. 

Ann Sutton, chief executive, said: “I am 
delighted to see that all the hard work over 
the past year has paid off and we have 
improved in both quality of services and use of 
resources. 

“I would like to personally pay tribute to the 
dedication and hard work of all PCT staff in 
achieving these results. 

“We will continue to push ourselves to 
achieve improvements year on year and 
improve the health of all the people in eastern 
and coastal Kent.” 

David Meikle, financial director, added: “The 


PCT is now in a strong financial position, which 
means we will be able to continue to invest 
more money in frontline services to benefit 
local people.” 

Thanet South MP Stephen Ladyman also 
congratulated NHS staff. 

He said: “The NHS Eastern and Coastal Kent 
Primary Care Trust has made real improve¬ 
ments in the standard of care across East Kent 
and has made particular improvements to the 
way it uses its resources. 

“That means it’s now able to invest sustain¬ 
ably in the services it provides and generate 
even greater improvement in future years. “ 

“Not everything about our local health care is 
perfect, there is certainly room for further 
improvement, but things are definitely going in 
the right direction and the Annual Health 
Check ratings show just what staff have 
achieved. Well done to them all.”

Make your own mind 
up about UFO reports 


A HEATHROW-bound passenger 
jet had a near-miss with a UFO in 
the skies over Lydd, according to 
former top-secret files released this 
week 

The captain of the Alitalia airliner Flight AZ 
284, Achille Zaghetti, shouted “Look out” to his 
co-pilot at the sight of what the papers describe 
as “a brown missile-shaped object” 

According to Ministry of Defence documents 
now being made available to researchers, the 
UFO streaked past the aircraft at a high speed 
and a higher altitude. 

RAF and Civil Aviation Authority investiga¬ 
tions could not explain the 1991 incident which 
features in military documents made available 
by the National Archives on Monday. 

After ruling out the object flying past the 


■ BY NICK AMES 


Alitalia jet being a missile, weather balloon or 
rocket, the MoD closed the inquiry. 

The report says the UFO was also witnessed 
from the ground by a young boy. 

The flight was en route from Milan and had 
57 people on board. 

Mr Zaghetti said after the event: “I saw for 
about 3.4 seconds a flying object, very similar to 
a missile, light brown coloured. 

“At once I said ‘look out, look out’ to my co¬ 
pilot who saw what I had seen. As soon as the 
object passed us I asked the ACC (area control 
centre) operator if he saw something on his 
screen and he answered ‘I see an inknown taget 
lOnm (nautical miles) behind you.” 

Further alerts took place the same night, 
April 21,1991. 


Nineteen files covering sightings between 
1986 and 1992 are now made available online. 

Around 200 will be made available by the 
MoD over the next four years. 

UFO expert Dr David Clarke, said the docu¬ 
ments would shed new light on relatively little- 
known close encounters with airborne phenom¬ 
ena - a subject which has received relatively lit¬ 
tle serious study but has become part of popu¬ 
lar culture thanks to films such as ET and tel¬ 
evision programmes The X Files and Dr Who. 

He said: “Because the subject is bedevilled by 
charlatans and lunatics, it is career suicide to 
have your name associated with UFOs, which 
is a real pity. 

“The National Archives are doing a fantastic 
job here. Everyone brings their own interpreta¬ 
tion. Now you can look at the actual primary 
material - the stuff coming into the MoD every 
day - and make your own mind up.” 


Negotiators called out 

A ROAD in Folkestone was closed on 
Thursday morning after police were called 
to a domestic incident. 

Officers attended an address in 
Alexander Street following the alarm. 

They included a specialist negotiating 
team. As a precaution roads in the area 
were closed off. 

A police spokeswoman said: “We attend¬ 
ed the incident but it was a purely domes¬ 
tic affair. Our officers were stood down by 
8.30am and the roads reopened.”

COASTAL CELEBRATION 

A host of events has been arranged across Shepway and Dover by the White Cliffs Countryside 
Project as part of Coast Week 2008. 

The week runs from this Saturday until Sunday of the following weekend and starts with a 
family walk at St Margaret's Bay in search of national treasures with stories about the white 
cliffs. Other walks and activities will be taking place throughout the week, including an Apple 
Fair at Langdon Cliffs on Saturday and Sunday. 

For the full programme, see www.whitecliffscountryside.org.uk, or pick up a booklet from 
libraries, visitor information centres or the WCCP on 01304 241806. 


Scot is a 'natural choice' for 
the role of Dambusters hero 


HOLLYWOOD star James McAvoy is in 
talks to star in the new Dambusters movie in 
the role of Second World War RAF bomber 
ace Guy Gibson - who went to school in 
Folkestone. 

The Scottish actor has met director 
Christian Rivers and producers David Frost 
and Peter Jackson - director of the Lord of 
the Rings trilogy - who are behind the 100 
million dollar remake of a film regarded as a 
classic British war movie. 

The 29-year-old is in line to play Wing 
Commander Guy Gibson who led the 
Lancasters of 617 Squadron, which dropped 
the famous bouncing bombs breaching the 


Mohne, Eder and Sorpe German dams. 

The film - which may also star Sir Ian 
McKellen - will be shot in Wellington, New 
Zealand, in the next few months. 

Stephen Fry, who wrote the screenplay, 
said: “It would be stupid not to look at an 
actor like James McAvoy. He would certainly 
be the kind of person one would naturally 
think of. Gibson was young and glamorous 
and fresh-faced.” 

Gibson - branded “average, but good at 
sports at the now closed St George’s Prep 
School - became a celebrity after the dams 
raid. He was awarded the Victoria Cross but 
returned to active service.

Roll-back takes you to 
the days of cheap fuel 
and power dressing 

AN AWARD-winning restaurant near Dover is 
rolling back its prices 20 years to help beat the 
credit crunch. 

Gavin Oakley, who owns the luxury four-star 
Wallett’s Court Country House Hotel, has decid¬ 
ed to take his Christmas menu prices back to 
1988, when drivers could fill up their tanks for 
less than 35p a litre. 

With inflation at its highest level for some 16 
years, Mr Oakley wants to give his customers a 
bit of festive cheer as people struggle with the 
gloomy economic climate. 

He said: ‘With the cost of food rising, share val¬ 
ues crashing and energy bills going through the 
roof, we thought it would be nice to give people 
something to smile about for a change.” 

Wallett’s Court, some four miles out of Dover, 
has already developed a reputation for fine din¬ 
ing and has won plaudits throughout the hospi¬ 
tality industry. 

Its customers have included Little Britain star 
David Walliams, Ryder Cup golfer Colin 
Montgomery and Bank of England Governor 
Mervyn King. 

Celebrity husband-and-wife team Richard 
and Judy have also paid a visit to the hotel and 
spa. 

The hotel’s restaurant has just been included 
in The Good Food Guide for the 20th consecutive 
year and Mr Oakley wants to celebrate by slash¬ 
ing his prices to make sure all his customers 
have a good Christmas. 

He has teamed up with head chef Steve 
Harvey and the team to create a fine dining 
three-course Christmas meal for £25. 

The party menu prices are also available for 
pre-booked parties of six or more. 

Wallett’s Court’s restaurant is open for 
Christmas lunch and dinner every day from 
December 1 to January 9, 2009, with the excep¬ 
tion of Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

QUESTION & ANSWER 


NEIL 

MATTHEWS 



QTell us about yourself 

A I have lived in the constituency for more 
than 20 years with my wife Sally and we 
have raised three sons here. I was a marine 
engineering officer, sailing around the world 
with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary before I set¬ 
tled here and worked on the ferries. 


Q 


Why do you want to be MP for Folkestone and Hythe? 


A I’m fed up with the flip-flop politics of 
Labour and the Conservatives. They have 
tried to steal each others’ policies in their 
attempts to be popular. People want to know 
where their MP stands. As a Liberal 
Democrat, I believe that knowing local people 
and their problems is essential. 


Q 


What qualifies you to represent voters as an MP? 


A I believe people want a local person to rep¬ 
resent them. I have been a parish council¬ 
lor since the mid-90s and have gone on to be 
a town councillor, mayor of Hythe and a dis¬ 
trict councillor. I have been a governor for 
three local schools during this time. I don’t 
give up in trying to do my best for our area. 

« This seat is traditionally a Conservative stronghold. 
Why do you think that you can be elected? 

A You are right, but there is no reason it 
should remain so. MPs who assume they 
have ‘safe seats’ are not good for their con¬ 


stituencies. Safe seats breed complacency 
and even arrogance. 

If elected, I will work full-time in the role -1 
won’t take on any directorships that may 
divert me from looking after constituents and 
speaking up for what I believe in. 

Once people see Liberal Democrat MPs in 
action, they tend to stay with them. Lewes in 
East Sussex was true blue for years, but Lib 
Dem Norman Baker demolished a huge Tory 
majority and continues to have the confidence 
of voters. His track record as a parliamentari¬ 
an is astonishing - and he doesn’t have any 
directorships! 

Q How did you feel when you heard that some local 
councillors were leaving the LibDems for the Tories? 

A Bemused. The councillors, to the best of 
my knowledge, had never supported 
Conservative policies and both have cam¬ 
paigned long and hard against them. 

Indeed, having left the LibDems once to be 
with Linda Gulley’s People First party, one 
councillor asked to rejoin, saying he was 
unhappy because People First worked too 
closely with the Tories. So now he wishes to 
embrace the policies of the Conservatives. If 
they truly believe the Tory Party is where they 
belong, I wish them well. 


Q 


What would be your first act as the representative of 
Folkestone and Hythe? 

Shepway council wrote to a Government 
select committee in 2006, stating: 


“Folkestone was and continues to be an eco¬ 
nomically under-performing town. 

“In 2000, Government indices of multiple 
deprivation indicated that four Folkestone 
wards fall within the 20 per cent most 
deprived wards nationally, and that one of 
these, Folkestone Harvey Central, is within 
the five per cent most deprived. 

“Taken together, these constitute a signifi¬ 
cant concentration of deprivation within 
Folkestone, which is home to approximately 
half of the district’s total population.” 

I will be working with everyone who wants 
to rectify this atrocious state of affairs. I really 
do want our voice to be heard up in West¬ 
minster. 


Q 


| What was your proudest moment? 

I’ve had many proud moments: getting 
married, the birth of each of our three 


Becoming Mayor of Hythe was a proud and 
rewarding experience and becoming Folke¬ 
stone and Hythe’s MP would certainly qualify, 
too. 


Q 


What do you wish people would take more notice of? 


A We do live in an area that has some beau¬ 
tiful scenery and countryside. People live 
busy lives, but taking a moment to occasion¬ 
ally look and realise what we have should be 
in everybody’s diary. 


Neil Matthews has represented people at parish, town and district level and is now the Liberal Democrats' 
parliamentary hopeful for the Folkestone and Hythe constituency. Here he talks to Robert Livingstone.

Which county has the 
coast with the most? 



LONGSHORE DRIFT: Kent has about 350 miles of coastline... with enough variety to float anyone's boat 


■ BY NICK AMES 


DOES Kent have the longest coast¬ 
line of any county in Britain? 

Our county council says that, at 350 miles, 
Kent can lay claim to the title, but others - 
including the Environment Agency - aren’t so 
sure. 

The Government body, using maps and 
satellite images, says the honour should go to 
Cornwall with its total of 435 miles. 

The West Country county itself, however, is 
more conservative. The Visit Cornwall tourist 
board says the figure is about 350 miles - “give 
or take a few”. 

But this does not include the Isles of Stilly, 
which the Environment Agency calculation 
does. 

Cambridge University has added to the con¬ 
troversy by coming out in favour of Kent. Its 
academics do not count all the small river 
estuaries in Cornwall which contribute to its 
large total. 

An Environment Agency spokesman said: 
‘We give Cornwall a figure of 435 miles 
because this includes the lower parts of the 
estuaries which make up local rivers. 

“Also the Isles of Stilly are taken into 
account. Kent has large water courses as well, 
such as the Medway, and these should obvi¬ 
ously be taken into account. 

“Really it is a matter of interpretation.” 


SATURDAY sees the start of Kent Coastal 
Week, which will set out to emphasise the sea¬ 
side’s natural attractions. 

Sea safaris will start out from Ramsgate 
harbour, a sand sculpture event takes place in 
Broadstairs and a beach litter art day is being 
held at the Kent Wildlife Trust’s base at 
Tyland Bam, near Maidstone. 

These are just some of the 50 events going on 


KCC later said its publicity material should 
have qualified its claim and stated that the 
coastline was “one of the longest”. 

However, staff at County Hall said the ‘fact’ 
had also appeared on various websites. 

A Visit Cornwall official contested the 
Environment Agency’s high figure. 


which have been timed to coincide with 
schools’ half-term week. 

Boat trips will include visits to the historic 
Second World War forts off Heme Bay and 
seal-spotting, as well as revealing details of 
the shoreline from out to sea. 

Those taking part will also have the oppor¬ 
tunity to learn about bird life, geology and col¬ 
lect shells. The county’s 350 miles of coastline 


We would never say that, that’s too much,” 
she said. 

“For our purposes we don’t include the Isles 
of Stilly. They may be part of Cornwall techni¬ 
cally, but they look after their own interests. 

“We’d say about 350 miles or so - can’t we 
call it a draw?” 


includes some of the most varied shorelines in 
the UK. Cllr Keith Ferrin, KCC’s cabinet 
member for the environment, said: “Kent’s 
coast has so much to offer, from Dover’s mighty 
white cliffs to low-lying marshes. 

“Everyone should take the opportunity to 
enjoy what they like best on the Kent coast.” 

The event runs until the following Saturday.

FAIR TRADE: Dr Caroline Lucas MEP 


Magazine award 
for Green MEP 
and party leader 

GREEN Euro MP Dr Caroline Lucas has 
received an accolade for her work on trade 
issues in the European Parliament. 

The newly-elected party leader for 
England and Wales was chosen by fellow 
members to receive the Parliament maga¬ 
zine award for MEP of the Year 2008 from 
a shortlist drawn up by non-govemmental 
organisations, many of which take part in 
aid work. 

In recent years she has campaigned to 
reform the European Union’s Economic 
Partnership Agreements, aiming to stop the 
sale of timber from illegal logging and 
deforestation, and calling for a ban on the 
importation of seal products. 

Dr Lucas has also been critical of the 
Global Europe trading strategy, which she 
feels promotes an anti-developmental 
approach in trying to force open markets in 
some of the poorest countries. 

She was elected to the European 
Parliament as one of the Green Party’s first 
MEPs in June 1999 to represent the south¬ 
east of England. 

She was re-elected in 2004. 

The next European elections take place in 
June 2009. 


Either way, it's shore to be a fantastic week

High-speed trains to 
boost homes market 


■ BY SIMON ROBINSON 


OPEN University bosses have 
launched an internal investigation 
after students were handed their 
exam paper three weeks before sit¬ 
ting the three-hour test. 

The blunder came to light after thousands of 
undergraduates nationwide had sat the envi¬ 
ronment exam on Friday, October 10. 

On Monday exam board chairman Dr Nigel 
Clark issued an unreserved apology to those 
affected and insisted that retakes would not be 
necessary. 

Student Erica Jones, 28, from Rochester, 
said she could not understand how the OU 
had made such a basic mistake. 

She said: “That such an established and 
well-respected institution could make such a 
stupid mistake made me feel that all my hard 
work was null and void. 

“If the OU’s going to give out the exam paper 
as a revision guide it makes me feel like my 


FORMER drug user Jo Dillane has turned 
her life around by using her past experiences 
to help others - and has just won the nation¬ 
al City and Guilds Skills for Justice Prize. 

She works for charity Turning Point and is 
seconded to Kent Police working on its Drug 
Intervention Programme. 

Ms Dillane, from Folkestone, has used her 
own first- hand knowledge to assist her in her 
work as it allows her a degree of understand¬ 
ing the problems users face. 

“I have got past experience with drugs,” she 
said. “That finished the day I finished my pro¬ 
gramme of treatment for addiction. I am not 
judgemental, a lot of the work I do with 
clients is about their safety. I have been there 


qualification won’t even be 
worth the paper it’s written on. 

“I enjoyed the course, but am 
now reconsidering continuing 
my studies with the OU until I 
hear the matter has been 
resolved in a way that’s fair to 
those of us not involved and the 
students given the exam paper. 

“I’d also like to know how the 
tutor involved will be reprimand¬ 
ed. Surely they can’t be trusted to 
continue teaching at degree level?” 

The exam paper was handed to 
students at a revision seminar in 
September, giving these learners 
three weeks to compose their 
answers or share their insider knowledge with 
peers from across the UK. 

OU bosses admitted the “breach of security” 
on the course’s web forum within hours of the 
end of the test. 

Head of examinations and assessment 
Jennifer Bull wrote: “The number of students 
who had direct access to the questions is 
known to be very small. 


and it means I have empathy with them.” 

Ms Dillane’s job entails visiting custody, vis¬ 
iting prisoners, asking about their concerns 
and helping them to accept treatment if they 
say they have an alcohol or drug problem. 

She works with a north Kent drugs team 
based in Gravesend which target around 25 
prolific offenders who break the law to feed 
their habits after intensive study at South 
Kent College. 

Ms Dillaneo said: “A lot of the work is about 
building relationships with the police and 
clients. When they realise I can help them, I 
get a lot done working alongside other organ¬ 
isations to make the transition into treatment 
seamless and provide intensive support. 


“That any students had prior 
access leads to a risk that the 
questions will have been commu¬ 
nicated more widely. 

“This risk is thought to be low 
but of course the impact potential 
is high.” 

Students were forced to wait for 
an agonising fortnight to hear if 
they would have to resit the exam. 

Dr Clark finally confirmed that 
this would not be necessary on 
Monday morning. 

Writing on the course’s web 
forum, he wrote: “The course 
team understands that the 
uncertainty surrounding this 
incident is the last thing you need after the 
demands of revision and examination, and we 
are very sorry for any distress this has caused. 

“It’s up to us to learn from this mistake and 
to make sure it doesn’t happen again. 

“The exam will not have to be retaken and 
firm measures are being taken to ensure that 
no student marks will be prejudiced by this 
incident.” 



UNDERSTANDING: Jo Dillane during a prison visit 

“I left school when I was 13 and never fin¬ 
ished anything in my life. When I won the 
national award, I was shocked -1 didn’t even 
know I was entered for it.” 


THE introduction of high-speed rail services 
between Kent and London next year could 
help spark a revival of house sales in Kent. 

House-builders are hopeful shorter journey 
times to the capital will prompt more com¬ 
muters to buy properties near train routes. 

But estate agents are less enthusiastic 
about the effects the Channel Tunnel rail 
link, High Speed 1, will have on house sales 
in the county, saying it will not solve the 
many problems the market faces. 

Edward Church, a partner at Strutt and 
Parker, said potential buyers would soon 
realise the downsides of the service. 

He said: “It’s more likely to have an impact 
between now and its arrival late next year, 
because once it has arrived it will probably 
be more expensive than the trains are 
already. 

“And while the trains will be quicker, they 
don’t go to the same areas of London so it’s not 
as if it’s a replacement for what already exists. 

“People might discover the service is not 
quite as exciting as first thought.” 

Earlier this year a bullet train recorded a 
journey time of just 32 minutes from Ashford 
to London. 

The Hitachi locomotive was on a test run 
between the International Station and St 
Pancras in the capital when it clocked in the 
time - five minutes less than operator 
Southeastern predicted for the passenger 
service that starts in December, 2009. 

The journey was part of a proving process 
introduced by the rail company to examine 
the efficiency of the new High Speed 1 line. 

Piers Clanford, managing director of 
Berkeley Homes (Kent), said interest in the 
firm’s Maidstone and Canterbury develop¬ 
ments was gathering momentum in antici¬ 
pation of the service. 

He added: “It’s clear it will elevate places 
like Canterbury and Snodland, but with the 
service 18 months away now is the time to 
invest in a new home in these areas.” 

Despite Mr Clanford’s optimism, others 
are not so sure the high-speed link will make 
that much of a difference. 

Simon Miller, of Maidstone-based Simon 
Miller Estate Agents, said while the service 
will increase the appeal of the county, it was 
“premature” to suggest it will lead to a boom 
in house sales. 

He added: “The rail link is probably the 
last thing on most people’s minds because 
the market is so depressed.”

■ BY NICK AMES 

PUPILS at Pent Valley Tech¬ 
nology College are among the first 
in the country to be awarded a 
new qualification from the British 
Safety Council that teaches young 
adults about the hazards they 
may face on work experience or at 
their first job. 

The entry-level award in Workplace Hazard 
Awareness is aimed primarily at 14- to 16- 
year-olds and provides crucial knowledge of 
health and safety issues in the workplace. 

In the programme, 193 students from Pent 
Valley put together personal portfolios cover¬ 
ing a range of topics such as hazards, safety 
signs, personal protective equipment and fire. 

The course was well attended and students 
quickly grasped the implications of work- 
related dangers, staff said. 


A spokesman said: ‘This is a very positive 
development to ensure the safety of our stu¬ 
dents in the workplace. 

“The pupils benefited enormously from this 
opportunity and thoroughly enjoyed the ex¬ 
perience.” 

The BSC introduced the scheme because of 
the worrying number of injuries sustained by 
young people. 

A spokesman said: “A young person is seri¬ 
ously injured in a UK workplace every 40 
minutes and in the last decade 66 under-19s 
have been killed at work. 

“So the British Safety Council is paying for 
all 14- to 19-year-olds in full-time education 
in the UK to gain the BSC entry-level award 
in Workplace Hazard Awareness 

“If schools become members of the British 
Safety Council, in addition to the normal 
range of member benefits they will be entitled 
to examination recognition. 

“This will provide a formal assessment to 
the delivery of health and safety in the 
national curriculum and contribute to school 
performance figures.”

Picking up the pieces at mosaic workshop 


PUPILS from year three at St 
Eanswythe’s School in Folkestone have 
taken part in a mosaic workshop with 
Jo Letchford from the town’s Creative 
Quarter. 

Jo helped the youngsters design and 
construct their own mosaics in school 
as part of the Roman theme they are 
studying. 

“It feels great to inspire young people 
by teaching them about mosaics - it’s 
such a versatile medium,” said Jo. 

“The pupils had a great time and cre¬ 
ated some fantastic designs. I hope they 
have been encouraged to continue.”

you rshepway blogger 

Each week we get a mystery writer to air their views on the issues of the day 



For cod's sake, give us our 
money back, you Bjorks 


BRITAIN has a new enemy on the 
international scene - and it’s far 
from the usual foe. 

Nothing to do with Islamic extremism, noth¬ 
ing to do with the EU and no juntas in the off¬ 
ing - but all to do with people and their hard- 
earned cash. 

Iceland is our arch-enemy at present - and 
they should be on the receiving end of some 
British action. 

The country’s mess over its banking system 
has led to a loss of savings for many people 
who placed their trust in the bankers of the 
land of Bjork. And now they should pay. 

The Icelandic government has said it will 
not act to bail out its country’s economic woes 
- and that is wrong. 

There are many people who feel that priori¬ 
ty should be given to overseas investors - and 
they are not just in Britain. 

The same feeling exists in Sweden, Norway 
and Denmark, where many people have also 
put their cash into Icelandic banks. 

But hold on - they are blaming us! 


In a bid to claw back some of the lost money, 
the British government seized Icelandic assets 
in the UK under the Anti-terrorism, Crime 
and Security Act 2001. 

Apparently the number one enemy on the 
streets of Reykjavik is the Prime Minister 
himself - Gordon Brown. 

Apparently they hate him more than we do. 

Iceland’s health minister even attacked Mr 
Brown on public radio. 

“Gordon Brown made the calculated deci¬ 
sion that to raise his ratings in the polls it 
would be ideal to attack Iceland. This has been 
made very clear,” said the minister, Gudlaugur 
Thor Thordarson. 

“Ordinary Icelanders are no more responsi¬ 
ble for the risk-seeking businessmen who 
happen to hold our passport than the people of 
north London are responsible for the destruc¬ 
tive behaviour of the talented Amy Wine- 
house,” said Icelandic professor Eirikur 
Bergmann Einarsson. 

“And even though most of us still enjoy most 
things British, we are furious with the UK 
government.” 


But hold on. This isn’t the first time the hot- 
springers have got on our case. 

The whole affair is an echo of the so-called 
cod wars that blighted relations between the 
two countries from the 1950s to the 1970s. 

That conflict came to a head in the mid-70s 
when an Icelandic gunboat opened fire on a 
British vessel after a clash within Iceland’s 
territorial waters. 

Iceland eventually came out on top, winning 
the right to keep British fishing boats outside 
its 200-mile exclusion zone. 

Well, they won’t win this one! In the 70s, the 
UK embassy received threats from angry 
Icelanders. 

Thirty years later, it is the turn of the 
Icelandic embassy to be the recipient of rude 
and threatening calls from British savers and 
investors. 

People have every right to be angry. We have 
gone to war for less. In fact, far less...

TALK TIME 


How long have you been in this position? 

I picked up the portfolio at the start of this summer. It 
involves overseeing the council's policy regarding the 
environment and keeping an eye on what is going on 
across the district as a whole. 


So it is quite wide-ranging? 

Yes, we have 19 miles of coastline between Folkestone and 
Lydd, and the other towns and areas need to be 
considered as well. 

There are many factors, rubbish-collecting, anti-social 
behaviour and even dogs fouling areas that people like to 
use. That is of particular concern to many. 

It's not just the town of Folkestone we have to focus on 
- there is a lot of countryside and other residential areas 
in Shepway. 

Do you enjoy Folkestone? 

Yes, very much. I have lived here nearly 30 years and I 
came because I had a holiday here and just fell in love 
with the place. 

So I came for a break and stayed, basically. 

Has it changed much? 

In the last three years we have seen a huge number of 
changes. 

There is a lot more for people to do and there is a lot 
more to the town. 

Last year we saw an amazing amount of hard work by 
all the people involved in the council and it has really paid 
off. The local government auditors raised the raising of 
the council standard to 'good' and that provided everyone 
with a real morale boost. 


Airport plans may 
be crash-landing 

THE Keep the Marsh Alliance, 
an organisation formed in 2005 
to oppose the expansion of 
London Ashford Airport at Lydd 
(LAA), wishes the former 
managing director, Zaher Deir, 
every success for the future. 

However, we believe his 
departure may scupper LAA’s 
development plans. 

Given the weight of opposition 
in terms of local opinion, and in 
recognition of the recent adverse 
economic conditions, we believe 
the planning applications by 
LAA should be withdrawn. 

We hope the local council will 
take note of the Government’s 
newly formed Energy and 
Climate Change Department and 
of the overriding need to act to 
tackle climate change . 

In addition, we concur with the 
RSPB that the latest additional 
information provided by LAA 
does not address the significant 
threats posed by the expansion 
on the adjacent internationally 
important bird reserve. 

The KMSA is calling for the 
plans to expand LAA to be called 
in for a public inquiry. 

The UK is the only country in 
the world potentially planning 
for a threefold increase in 
aviation, as outlined in the 
Transport White Paper of 2003. 

Aviation growth is simply 
unsustainable - research has 
shown that if aviation is left to 
grow unchecked, it will account 
for all of the UKs carbon dioxide 
emissions by 2050. 

Carbon dioxide is one of the 
principal greenhouse gases 
responsible for human-induced 
climate change.

Make planning local 
and accountable 

THE residents of Middle Deal 
are deeply disappointed with the 


Planning Inspectorate’s decision 
to allow both planning 
applications for the large-scale 
industrial redevelopment of 
Minter’s Yard within a dense 
residential area. 

There are many valid issues 


that have been poorly addressed 
by Kent Highway Services, Dover 
District Council planning officers 
and Appeals Inspector Martyn 
Heyes. 

In particular, these relate to 
issues regarding the vulnerability 
of cyclists, poor road conditions 
and high levels of large traffic 
through residential areas. 

However, Mr Heyes has made a 
number of conditions prior to the 
commencement of the 
development, first use and 
occupation of the site. 

There is strong local feeling 
regarding the poor access and 
wider traffic implications 
through Deal expressed by town, 
district and county councillors, 
residents and the Deal Society. 

Hence I respectfully ask that 
each of the points set down by 
the Inspectorate are referred 
back to planning committee 
members to decide these issues, 
as they consist of local 
representatives and are not just 
council officials. 

The planning committee did 
specifically request at the July 3 
planning meeting that the 
detailed travel plan and other 
traffic issues come back to it for 
consideration. 

I hope and trust this will be 
adhered to. 

The planning committee is 
accountable for the decisions it 
makes and must take into 
account the historic and current 
problems with this site.

as a result of such investments. 

KCC should have been more 
careful. The £50 million investments 
in three Icelandic financial 
institutions is the largest exposure 
of all the UK local councils and 
other public bodies which invested 
in Iceland’s collapsing banks. 

Unfortunately, the county’s council 
taxpayers may now have to suffer, 
since the Government may not be 
willing to cover all the shortfall. 

Bearing in mind Conservative 
pledges not to increase council 
taxes, taxpayers are likely to suffer 
through severe cuts to services. 

Kent’s people may lose out even 
further as the financial crisis 
continues to impact upon spending 
and employment. 

To move quickly away from 
recession, we need a ‘Green New 
Deal’. 

This would require massive 
investment in renewable energy and 
wider environmental transformation 
in the UK, leading to: 

• The creation of thousands of 
new ‘green collar’ jobs. 

• Reining in reckless aspects of 
the finance sector but making low- 
cost capital available to fund the 
UKs green economic shift. 

• Building a new alliance between 
environmentalists, industry, 
agriculture and unions to put the 
interests of the real economy ahead 
of those of footloose finance. 

KCC needs to clean up its 
investments in general. It is still 
investing in tobacco and arms sales. 

A sustainable investment 
programme based on the Green 
New Deal ideas must include a 
commitment to ethical investment 
for the long-term.

Listen to businessmen 
over business growth 

THE redevelopment of Lydd airport 
is within the Government’s regional 
airport policy, the county council 
structure plan, Shepway council’s 
local plan and the Romney Marsh 
rural plan, as well as the Channel 
Corridor regeneration project which 
stretches from Queenborough on the 
Isle of Sheppey to Lydd. 

The project is supported by the 
Channel Chamber of Commerce and 
Industry and Ashford Chamber of 
Commerce - these being 
organisations with their fingers on 
the pulse of local business. 

Some objectors are calling for a 
public inquiry, but are they aware 
that there was a public inquiry 
some years ago and the then 
Secretary of State’s decision was 
that objections raised by the Lydd 
Airport Action Group and the RSPB 
did not justify the refusal of the 
planning application subject to 
conditions to be agreed with 
Shepway council? 

In the present economic climate, 
can they really justify another 
public inquiry costing anything 
between £20 million and £30 
million? 

I would raise concerns about 
Shepway council’s handling of the 
planning application, especially the 
timescale and that fact that there 
has been a public inquiry in the 
past. 

Come on, Shepway council - it’s 
time to make a decision before you 
drown in all this additional 
information. 

This is about jobs in an area 
which has one of the highest 


unemployment levels in the country. 

Regional airports create good- 
quality jobs and economic benefits 
to local businesses. 

This could become Shepway 
council’s greatest asset, so please 
give your total support to the 
private company that has already 
invested £25 million on the project, 
with more to come. 

For the record, Louise Barton of 
LAAG has publicly stated that she 
has no concern for the creation of 
jobs or the unemployed and yet she 
is regularly consulted by officers of 
Shepway council on matters relating 
to Lydd airport. 

Chris Corrigan of the RSPB seems 
to know little or nothing about the 
birds that he represents as you see 
large flocks of birds flying in or 
around the airport, and as there are 
no plans to have night-flying he will 
not have to worry about the birds he 
has doing night shifts. 

Come on, Mr Corrigan, even us 
non-members of the RSPB know the 
only night-fliers in general are owls. 

Another of the RSPB’s concerns is 
about pollution which could 
damage the ecosystems, and yet 
the RSPB built a road from 
Boulderwall Farm right to the 
heart of the bird reserve with a 
large car-parking area with visitor 
centre, bringing pollution to the 
very place it claims to be concerned 
about. 

LAAG and the RSPB have both 
claimed that there will be large jet 
aircraft using the airport - for the 
type of aircraft they show, the 
runway would have to be extended 
through to Littlestone Golf Club and 
not the 444 metres that have been 
asked for.

Rock goes to college in 
search of a record deal 


A STUDENT-led record label is on the hunt for 
unsigned Kent bands eager to hit the big time. 

C3U Records, based at 
Canterbury Christ Church ■ BY STEVE KNIGHT 

University, is offering untapped 
talents a one-year contract with 
the promise of three songs avail¬ 
able for download by early next 
year. Bands of all genres are being 
invited to apply, with commercial 
music students responsible for all 
aspects of production and promo¬ 
tion. 

Music business lecturer Julia 
Jones said C3U Records would be 
working with eight bands, but 
only one from outside the univer¬ 
sity. 

She added: “There’s a lot of tal¬ 
ent in Kent and this year has 
probably been the biggest ever in 
terms of music in the county. 

“We had Radio l’s Big Weekend 
in Maidstone, Zoo8, Lounge on the 
Farm, Sellindge Music Festival 
and others - it was an incredible 
year. 

“A lot of these festivals featured 
local acts, so there is clearly a 
wealth of talent out there. 

“This record deal represents a 
great opportunity for bands, but 
will also allow our students the 
chance to experience the tri¬ 
umphs and difficulties that come 
with running a business.” 

The commercial music course is 
delivered to students at the uni¬ 
versity’s Broadstairs campus, 
which includes performance 
rooms, a recording studio and 
computer music suite. All are 



ROCK DREAMS: RetroDivine are signed to C3U Records - and your band could join them 


given the opportunity to con¬ 
tribute to C3U Records in their 
second year. 

The successful unsigned band 
will record three songs with an 
engineer and producer before the 
end of the year, with the finished 
products being released digitally 
through iTunes. 

Mrs Jones said working with a 
group of musicians not familiar to 
the students would be a unique 
challenge for them. 

She added: “They’re going to 
have to get to know the band 
members and their style of music, 
and work out how best to record 
and promote them. But it’s also a 
great opportunity for an emerging 
band, as studio time can add up to 
quite a lot of money. 

“Our commercial music depart¬ 
ment is booming and we have a 
lot of talented youngsters here, so 
hopefully we can help a few bands 
reach that next level.” 

Unsigned groups wishing to be 
considered for the one-year con¬ 
tract should email their MySpace 
page details to julia.jones@canter- 
bury.ac.uk before Friday. For more 
information on music courses 
available at Canterbury Christ 
Church, and for open day dates,

Therapy helps you to quit habit 


■ Canterbury Skin and Laser 
Clinic 

THE Clinic has introduced a new treatment 
to help smokers cut out the addictive habit. 

Dr Alice Hudson-Peacock runs the centre 
along with beauty therapist who provides a 
full range of treatments. 

These include any problems people have 
with their skin. 

The smoking therapy is one of the latest to 
be offered and it mimics acupuncture treat¬ 
ment. 

The specialists understand that many peo¬ 
ple would like to give up smoking - but 
achieving their goal is a difficult objective. 

Dr Hudson-Peacock said: “We are delighted 
to introduce Nicolite to the clinic. 

“It is a revolutionary low-powered laser 
which is clinically proven to help stop smok¬ 
ing. 



“The low level laser light is absorbed into 
the body and stimulates the release of endor¬ 
phins, the body’s natural pain killers. 

“It effectively replicates the effect nicotine 
has on the body and so reduces cravings.” 

In a recent trial 70 per cent of people treat¬ 
ed with the laser stopped smoking and it is 
considered to be up to six times more effective 
than nicotine patches when it comes to peo¬ 
ple stopping smoking. 

“Obviously you need the will power but it 
should take just two sessions 24 hours apart 
to quite smoking. However people should 
think about keeping another session in 
reserve,” said Dr Hudson-Peacock. 

The clinic has also just added a laser sys¬ 
tem which can be used for hair and tattoo 
removal as well as the eradication of ageing 
spots. 

The device can also tackle loose skin 
around the jowels and neck as well as acne, 
scars and wrinkles. 


All’s Well that ends with no surgery 


■ Wells Clinic 


THE Wells Clinic in New Street, 
Ashford has been running for 17 
years, helping people to achieve 
their full potential in terms of 
their looks. 

‘We are about making people 
feel good about themselves - 
making people happier,” said 
Helen Huggins. 

She explains that there is far 
more to looking and feeling good 
than simply how you look in one 
area: “Our business is about our 
clients feeling confident and giv¬ 
ing themselves more assurance.” 

With that comes a range of 
exciting new ideas and proce¬ 
dures that completely bypass 
any need for surgery - one of the 
biggest concerns for many peo¬ 


ple. 

The Wells Clinic ensures that it 
can offer the very latest 
advances in non-invasive cos¬ 
metic surgery. 

Helen added: Wrinkle fillers 
and Botox injections can take 
years off your face. You can 
become more confident, look 
younger and achieve a more pos¬ 
itive outlook.” 

A lot of the business is word of 
mouth, and celebrity clients have 
also used the expertise of staff at 
Wells - but the centre is discreet 
and won’t be naming names. 

A simple consultation can take 
you through all the procedures 
available and skilled staff can 
advise on the best procedures 
based on individual needs. Get in 
touch to find how it can help you.

NAKED TRUTH: Calendar Girls tells the true story of a group of Women's Institute members who carried out a brave stunt to raise cash for charity 



Ladies bare all as they bring true story to the stage 


THE true story of middle- 
aged women who stripped 
off in the name of charity is 
brought to the stage next 
month. 

Calendar Girls is based on the real- 
life exploits of a group of Women’s 
Institute members who posed nude 
for a fund-raising calendar. The 
heart-warming tale inspired an 
award-winning film and now the 
stage version, with a stellar cast 
including Lynda Bellingham and 
Patricia Hodge, is heading for 
Canterbury. 

All the shows quickly sold out but, 
due to huge demand, the cast has 
agreed to put on an extra perform¬ 
ance at 2.30pm on Wednesday, 
November 5. Patricia Hodge, who last 
visited the Marlowe in April while 
starring in The Clean House, is a big 
fan of Canterbury and reportedly 
jumped at the chance to stage anoth¬ 
er performance there. 

At the time of writing, tickets for 
the extra performance were selling

Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury 

fast but some were still available, so 
contact the box office as soon as pos¬ 
sible to secure your seat. The cast 
also features Elaine C Smith, Gaynor 
Faye and Brigit Forsythe. 

When Annie’s husband dies from 
leukaemia, her friend Chris decides 
to buy a comfortable sofa for the hos¬ 
pital waiting area. Her fund-raising 
idea - a calendar which shows her 
friends posing nude while carrying 
out daily chores, such as baking, with 
their private areas discreetly 
obscured - initially meets with scorn 
from the group. But they gradually 
come around to the idea, much to the 
dismay of their WI leader who refus¬ 
es to sanction the project. 

When they finally get permission to 
go ahead, the calendar becomes a 
runaway success and the ordinary 
women from Yorkshire find them¬ 
selves becoming international 
celebrities. A trip to America and 



appearances on high profile chat 
shows do wonders for their cause, but 
also reveal the tensions starting to 
build within the group. 

The real-life Calendar Girls 
released the 2000 Alternate WI 
Calendar in 1999 and it sold out 
within the first week. Another print 
run immediately sold out as well and 
within nine months of its launch, 
88,000 copies had been sold. An 
updated version became a hit in 
America the following year, resulting 
in more than 200,000 further sales, 
and to date the group has raised well 
over £1 million for Leukaemia 
Research. 

They have continued to support the 
charity by selling their own range of 
merchandise including calendars, 
jams, chocolates and greetings cards. 
Their daring project inspired many 
copy cat calendars by other organisa¬ 
tions, but the WI ladies remain the 
original Calendar Girls. 

Tickets are priced from £12 to £26.

JOE BROWN 

Friday, October 24 
Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone 

ONE of this country’s most enduring and 
acclaimed musicians Joe Brown invites fans 
to help him celebrate 50 years in the busi¬ 
ness. 

Having entertained music fans for half a 
century, Brown is touring with a new two- 
hour show to mark his achievement. 

Along with his long-serving band, daughter 
Sam and son Pete, Brown will perform the 
great songs in a diverse array of genres 
which have given him such popularity and 
longevity. 

From rockabilly, country and electric rock 
‘ri roll to folk and gospel, the songs are linked 
by Brown’s unique style and humour. 

After beginning his career as a live per¬ 
former, Brown became a recording star in the 
60s. 

His skiffle band, originally called The 
Spacemen, was renamed Joe Brown and 
The Bruwers. Since then his career has 
included roles in films, pantomimes and 
stage musicals as well as presenting jobs on 
television. 

Sam Brown is a singer who scored a huge 
hit with Stop! in 1989. Newest band member 
Pete is a record producer. 

The concert starts at 7.30pm, tickets cost 
£21/£19. To book call 0870 4000890. 



HALLOWEEN FUN 

Saturday to Friday, 

October 25-31 
Dover Castle 

SPOOKS and ghouls could 
be found around every cor¬ 
ner as Dover Castle invites 
visitors to meet its resident 
spirits. 

With more than 2,000 
years of history and 12 loca¬ 
tions around the castle 
where ghosts have reported¬ 
ly been spotted, a chilling 
encounter could be on the 
cards as Halloween creeps 
closer. Visitors will be able to 
enjoy a guided tour of one of 
England’s most haunted cas¬ 
tles, in the company of a cos¬ 
tumed character represent¬ 
ing its terrifying past. 

The 45-minute tours start 
at 11am each day, with the 
last starting at 4pm. Little 
beasties should dress up in 
all their frightful finest to 
take part in the Halloween 




costume competition, as a 
prize will be on offer in the 
Keep Yard at 2.15pm each 
day. 

Witches and wizards will 
be on hand to help their 
young protegees make 
wicked hats and cat, bat or 
pumpkin masks, using 


sparkles, fabric, features and 
paints. 

The event is suitable for 
five to 10-year-olds and all 
children must be accompa¬ 
nied by an adult.

admission see www.english-

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM 

Tuesday to Saturday, 

October 28 to November 1 
The Marlowe Theatre, CanterbdPy 

NORTHERN Ballet Theatre makes a much 
anticipated return to Canterbury with its 
production of a classic Shakespeare comedy. 

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is transport¬ 
ed from its original setting in the Athens 
woods to the elegance of 1940s Britain. A the¬ 
atre company holds its final rehearsal before 
travelling to Edinburgh to perform and emo¬ 
tions are running high. Amid romantic 
entanglements and the clashing of artistic 
temperaments, the group board a train to 
Edinburgh where the tensions continue. But

lier this year, audiences can expect another

moving train and float through a giant eye 
into a world of fairies, magic and mystery in 
this Olivier Award-nominated production.

YOUR TV REVIEW 

O LITTLE BRITAIN USA 

BBC One, 9.30pm, Friday 

■ BY TOM BETTS 


AM I the only person in the 
country who doesn’t find 
Little Britain funny? 

Sometimes it really does feel that 
way. 

It’s a bit like not being invited to a 
party that everyone talks about at 
work the next day - you have to hover 
around feeling awkward as everyone 
gushes about how good it was while 
you keep schtum. 

It’s not that I don’t think it doesn’t 
have the odd amusing moment or two, 
or that it’s embarrassing to watch - it 
just never really makes me chuckle, 
which has to be a pretty big failing for 
what a helluva lot of people seem to 
rate as our finest comedy. 

There’s a whole clutch of shows that 
everyone seems to go ape over that 
just pass me by. 

Along with The Catherine Tate 
Show and Gavin and Stacey, which 
also seem to have captured everyone’s 
imagination but my own, the whole 
joke seems lost on me. 

Episodes seem more like a series of 
reasonably amusing observations, 
held together by a raft of catch- 
phrases and repeated mannerisms, 
rather than side-splitting sketches. 

“Computer says no”; “I’m a lady”; 
“Yeah, I know” and “I’m the only gay in 
the village” have now joined Tate’s 
“Am I bowered?” in the national 
consciousness, for better or worse, 
but I’d happily take Harry Enfield and 
Paul Whitehouse’s current offering - 
surprisingly good - over any of the 
above. 

Little Britain is certainly the main 
offender, though, and now it’s being 
beamed into the homes of our friends 
Stateside. 



OFF-KEY: Walliams (left) and Lucas have taken 
their comic creations Stateside in the new show 

While I concur that Lucas and 
Walliams are a funny couple of chaps 
- appearances on other shows prove 
that - has Little Britain really got the 
legs to make it over the other side of 
the pond? 

Pay network HBO seemed to think 
so and has signed up the comics for a 
series or two to see if they can crack 
the land of plenty - and no doubt 
make them a few dollars in the 
process. 

Johnny Depp is said to be a fan, 
but let’s not take his judgement too 
seriously - he only turned up on the 
Fast Show when it had become staler 
than a month-old French stick. 

All this aside, though, I wish the 
boys well. 

If they can make the Americans 
laugh - never an easy task - then good 
luck to them. 


YOUR WEEK'S HOROSCOPE BY RUSSELL GRANT 



AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19) 
IYOU will get the respect 
and recognition you 
deserve at work. A reward or pro¬ 
motion lets you know you’re on 
the right track. Getting involved 
with a humanitarian effort will 
also be a real pleasure. It’s great to 
see other people share your con¬ 
cern for the planet. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Aquarius 09067-531762 

TAURUS (Apr 21-May 21) 
■■YOU could form a busi- 
ness partnership with a 
close female friend. Romance 
could make its way into your life. 
You’re drawn to an adventurer 
and you’ll feel relaxed, susceptible 
and sexy when they are around. 
It’s nice to have a physical outlet 
for all of your pent up emotion. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Taurus 09067-531753 


LEO (Jul 24-Aug 23) 
y 1 YOU’LL have more time 
for fun this week which 
comes as a welcome relief. You’ve 
been devoting lots of energy to act¬ 
ing sensibly and responsibly so 
take this opportunity to enjoy 
yourself. Good news regarding an 
inheritance or refund puts some 
worries to rest. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Leo 09067-531756 

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22) 
■H BUSINESS matters 
<7 related to art, music, or 
luxury items could pay off hand¬ 
somely. If you’ve ever been 
interested in becoming a collector, 
you may want to make your first 
purchase this week. You could find 
an entry level specimen at an 
excellent price. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Scorpio 09067-531759 


PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20) 
f^^NlAN event, reception or 
• gathering could put you in 
contact with several influential 
people so be sure to look your best. 
Your distinctive style draws lots of 
favourable attention and may 
lead to an artistic opportunity, but 
you would be wise to know when 
to speak and when to stay silent. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Pisces 09067-531763 

GEMINI (May 22-Jun 22) 

I ITS easy to attract 
romantic attention. People 
are drawn to your wit and intelli¬ 
gence. If you’re in a relationship, 
be tender toward your partner. 
You may want to take your 
amour’s advice with regard to a 
project. If the two of you are think¬ 
ing of having a baby, go for it. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Gemini 09067-531754 

.VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23) 

|| A FAMILY gathering will 
be a lot more fun than 
you think. It’s fun enjoying food, 
wine, and music with the people 
who know you best. A relative 
could give you a cherished family 
heirloom. Keep this precious 
object where you can enjoy and 
appreciate it. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Virgo 09067-531757 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov23-Dec21) 
i 1 YOUR animal magnetism 
is at an all-time high. If 
you’ve been harbouring a crush on 
somebody make your move now 
and you won’t be disappointed. If 
you’re already in a relationship, 
this is a good time to ask a favour 
from your other half and melt 
their resolve. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Sacpttarius 09067-531760 


ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20) 

''■&^IF you’re in a relationship 
the two of you could bene¬ 
fit from a little intellectual stimu¬ 
lation. Becoming more resourceful 
with your money will strengthen 
your bond. Learn to rely on each 
other for entertainment, rather 
than buying lots of expensive 
gadgets. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Aries 09067-531752 

f\ CANCER (Jun 23-Jul 23) 

f PAYING more attention 
^ ™ to your appearance isn’t 
shallow. It’s a means to feel more 
comfortable. People will respond 
to you more favourably when you 
look your best. It will also be easi¬ 
er to get your ideas across. If 
you’re looking for work, invest in a 
good interview suit. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on Cancer 09067-531755 

# LIBRA (Sep 24-0ct23) 

YOU’VE got to be diplo¬ 
matic with someone close 
to your heart. Offering the unvar¬ 
nished truth will cause more 
harm than good. Try to speak 
your mind in a way that will 
appeal to this person’s vanity. 
Fortunately, you’re brilliant at this 
sort of thing. 

• To find out more about what the stars have in 
store call Russell on libra 09067-531758 

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20) 

JlT’S as though you can 
understand people with¬ 
out using words, so trust your 
instincts when it comes to an inti¬ 
mate relationship. A friend who is 
pretending that all is well actual¬ 
ly needs to be comforted. Be will¬ 
ing to offer your home as a quiet 
retreat from their troubles.

A transformed man 



■ BY ELLIE GENOWER 


LIFE has certainly sped 
up for 22-year-old Shia 
LaBeouf recently 

Ever since his hit movie 
Transformers became the high¬ 
est-grossing film of 2007, the 
young actor has had to deal with 
increasing fame, interest in his 
private life and inevitable atten¬ 
tion from the paparazzi. 

“It’s crazy and new, you know. 
I’m figuring it out,” he says of the 
growing attention he receives 
from fans. 

It’s been a fast rise to fame for 
Shia. Last year he played a 
teenager who thinks he witnesses 
a murder in the Rear Window- 
style thriller Disturbia, then he 
picked up plaudits for his role in 
this summer’s Indiana Jones 
blockbuster. 

Now he’s playing the lead in 
new action thriller Eagle Eye, 
released at the weekend. 

“For me, this was the most vul¬ 
nerable professional position I’ve 
ever been in as far as child to 
adult transition,” he admits. 

Shia teams up with Disturbia 
director DJ Caruso in the film, 
which is based on an original idea 
by executive producer Steven 
Spielberg. 

He plays Jerry Shaw, an aver¬ 
age guy whose life is turned 
upside down when he receives a 
mysterious phone call from a 
woman he’s never met. He is 
thrown together with a stranger, 
Rachel (Michelle Monaghan), and 
the mysterious woman pushes 
the pair into increasingly danger¬ 
ous situations as the technology 
surrounding them tracks and con¬ 
trols their every move. 

“In anybody else’s hands it 
would have been very scary,” Shia 
says of his headlining role. 


“But because I’ve kind of grown 
up with DJ and Steven 
[Spielberg], it is like being with a 
group of friends. In my other 
movies, I’ve just been riding the 
coat-tails of something which will 
be successful, whether I’m in it or 
not.” 

Shia’s had a tough year, which 
saw him arrested after an inci¬ 
dent in a Chicago pharmacy last 


November. More recently, he had 
a very public car accident in Los 
Angeles. He needed an operation 
on his hand as a result - and it’s 
still bandaged today. 

“I just remember a car coming 
at me really fast and then my 
truck flipping twice,” he says of 
the collision. Luckily, he was able 
to continue filming Transformers 
II and promoting Eagle Eye. The

film explores a nightmare sce¬ 
nario of the Orwellian Big 
Brother variety. 

“It’s a cautionary tale,” Shia 
explains. “It’s something which 
could happen and is tangible. 
What’s incredible is that Steven 
Spielberg had the foresight to see 
this happening almost 10 years 
ago.” 

Unlike many action movies, 
Eagle Eye stayed away from cre¬ 
ating a romantic scenario for its 
two leads. Instead of love scenes, 
the duo found themselves per¬ 
forming a multitude of tough and 
intense stunts. 

“Michelle’s a warrior,” laughs 
Shia. “I don’t know if I’ve ever 
seen a woman do stunts like she 
does. And then she gets up and is 
all friendly and giggly and goes 
over and eats a cookie. And I’d be 
sitting there, my elbow hurting, 
and she’d just turn to me and say 
Why don’t you man up?’.” 

His co-star may have run rings 
around him on set, but Shia says 
he’s still hungry for a slice of 
tough-guy action. “I like all that 
fight stuff,” he says, smiling. “For a 
little Jewish kid to come to the set 
and be a superhero for five min¬ 
utes, that’s great.”

Safe as houses amid

SOLID FOUNDATIONS: The banking crisis has made property look like a safer option for many cash buyers 


PROPERTY NEWS 

Northerners are 
told to stay put 

A MASS southward migration from 
northern cities is not the answer to in¬ 
equality in the UK, says the Campaign 
to Protect Rural England. 

The thinktank Policy Exchange sug¬ 
gested northerners should leave their 
homes and depart to rent or buy new 
accommodation because accommoda¬ 
tion, the environment and job prospects 
in their home areas were poor. 

The call was greeted with a volley of 
opposition - with Conservative leader 
David Cameron branding it “insane” - 
and the chorus of disapproval continues 
to grow. 

Commenting on the findings, the 
CPRE’s senior planner, Kate Gordon, 
said: “It is difficult to find anything sen¬ 
sible in this report. Mass migration from 
north to south is the last thing strug¬ 
gling areas need. 

“It would widen, rather than narrow, 
the gap between north and south.” 

Agents need to 
be eco-friendly 

ECO-FRIENDLY homes with energy- 
efficient components are popular with 
buyers and can attract a higher price 
than other homes of similar size. 

Recent research across the market has 
shown that green is an option preferred 
by many in today’s market. 

Friends of the Earth have now said 
they feel estate agents are not doing 
enough to capitalise on this trend. 

Marie Reynolds from the environmen¬ 
tal group said: “There is a clear public 
appetite for green homes. 

“Estate agents should realise energy- 
efficiency is a definite selling point.” 

The trend is being increased by grow¬ 
ing concern about fuel bills and was first 
identified by the Energy Savings Trust. 

A survey said people were willing to 
pay about £3,350 more for a house with 
ecologically-aware features.

Cash buyers eye 
property option 
during recession 

INVESTORS who have lost faith 
in the banking system because of 
the volatile economic situation are 
turning to property as a safe haven 
for their cash. 

Experts say those with cash to spend feel 
that they can “feel it, touch it and live in it” 
when it comes to homes - and bricks and mor¬ 
tar won’t disappear overnight, as some share 
values have. 

Estate agents have identified a growth in 
interest from cash buyers who want physical 
assets for their money. 

The trend is emerging in all comers of the 
property market, according to agents who are 
studying the market. 

Robert Billson, of Savills, said: “There are 
people with £50,000 who would rather buy a 
derelict house and board it up for a while than 
put their money in an Icelandic bank right 
now.” 

Buyers with cash are in a stronger position 
to negotiate price reductions than those who 
need mortgages. 

Derelict 

Liam Bailey, head of residential research at 
Knight Frank, said: “We are seeing a huge 
amount of interest from investors, partly 
because they believe that bricks and mortar 
are safer than banks and stocks and shares in 
the current climate. 

“Now that capital prices are down 15 to 20 
per cent on last year’s values, and even more 
for new-build property, the investment case is 
more compelling for residential property. 

“Income yields have moved up to eight per 
cent, which suddenly makes sense. 

“Now that the investment case for residen¬ 
tial property has been underpinned, investors 
are comparing it to paper investments - 


money in the bank or equities. Property sud¬ 
denly seems a safer investment.” 

Financial advisers highlighted the dangers 
of buying as an investment in a falling market 
but acknowledged that there was “some logic” 
for long-term investors with cash to buy now, 
provided, of course, that they are able to secure 
a bargain. 


Mark Dampier, head of research at 
Hargreaves Lansdown, an independent finan¬ 
cial adviser, said: “With property, you can feel 
it, touch it, see it and live in it - you know it 
cannot be taken - so there is some degree of 
logic to buying now as opposed to depositing in 
banks if you have the money, although it 
might all end in tears.”

VW offers meaner and 
leaner people carriers 

HOW about supermini fuel consumption 
from a seven-seater? 

That’s the VW pitch with eco-friendly 
BlueMotion Touran and Sharan (pic¬ 
tured) MPVs capable of averaging around 
50mpg and emitting just 144g/km and 
159g/km of C02 respectively. 

BlueMotion is the badge introduced for 
the most efficient model in each VW line¬ 
up. The diesel engines and gearboxes of 
both cars have been tweaked - the 
Touran uses a 103bhp 1.9-litre, while the 
Sharan has a 138bhp 2.0-litre. 

Prices start at £16,725 for the Touran 
and £21,290 for the Sharan. 



Twin charger power 
for Seat's new Cupra 

SPANISH sporting marque Seat has 
harnessed parent group VW’s Twin 
charger’ engine technology for its fiery 
new Ibiza Cupra supermini. 

Based on the three-door Ibiza SC or 
SportCoupe body, it features a 177bhp 
supercharged and turbocharged 1.4 TSI 
petrol engine for maximum power and 
economy. The engine is also cleverly 
mated with VW’s excellent seven-speed 
DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmis¬ 
sion, complete with F 1-style steering 
wheel shift-paddles, offering an auto¬ 
matic option when stuck in heavy traffic. 



Fleet contract deal is 
another Superb option 

SKODA’S impressive new Superb 
executive model is available on monthly 
contract hire from just £199 plus VAT for 
the entry level 1.9 TDI Superb S. 

The deal is based on a 36- 
month/10,000-mile per year deal on 
vehicles delivered by January 31, 2009 
and can be upgraded to other engines 
and specifications. 

The Czech carmaker’s flagship has 
already caught the eye with aggressive 
retail pricing from £15,490. 



STAR TREKKING: Despite a few shortcomings, Honda's diesel version of the Civic has the same racing coupe styling of its hot hatch, the Type-R, and is almost as quick 


Honda's diesel Civic just 
as capable of warp drive 


STARSHIP looks and warp drive 
performance from Honda’s hot 
Type-R version of the Civic, sent 
me into orbit for our Motors TV. 

The video report - see ‘Star Drive’ at 
www.carsforkent.co.uk - ended up being a 
mad m ix of Blade Runner and Star Trek. 

Surely the mainstream diesel would keep 
my feet on the ground though? Not quite. 

With the same racy coupe styling - even on 
the five-door - spaceship dashboard, plus a 
responsive 138bhp 2.2-litre engine and plenty 
of low-down pulling power, the ‘oil burner’ can 
still launch to 62mph in 8.6 seconds - just 1.4 
behind the Type-R. 

No wonder so many owners are tempted to 
fit one of many tuning kits/software packages 
available for this wonderfully smooth engine. 

Admittedly, our highly specified 2.2i-CTDi 
EX five-door (£18,980), does not have the 
Type-R’s tweaked chassis, but it is still a live¬ 
ly and eye-catching car to drive as well as 
being wonderfully practical. 

Basic Civic shortcomings are still there of 
course: the spoiler that splits the rear screen

hampers rearward vision and prevents fitting 
a rear washAvipe, though I never found this a 
problem. 

The rising waistline that works so well for 
the futuristic styling also makes it harder for 
kids and smaller passengers to see out, while 
generous underfloor storage beneath an 
already big boot is achieved by omitting the 
spare wheel. 

But I do feel like I am nit-picking when the 
Civic does so much else well: the styling will 
still cut a dash when this version finally gets 
the chop - unlike its predecessor - and the 
quality of the interior is excellent. 

True, that Star Trek facia divides opinion 
and can look fussy, but it works well and the 
digital speedo sits right in your eyeline. 

And it is a real driver’s car without being 
harsh on any passengers; tight cornering and 
grip is aided and abetted by a crisp six-speed 
gearbox and light yet responsive steering. 

Civic prices start at £14,530 with the diesels 
weighing in from £16,440 - not bad for a dis¬ 
tinctive and reliable Swindon UK-built family 
hatch cum spaceship.

USED CAR ROUND-UP: 

AFFORDABLE FAMILY HATCHBACKS carsferkent.co.uk W 

LOOKING to downsize yet still run a car that does it all? Start shopping for a family hatchback; it seats five, can be crammed 
like a small van and represents a good balance of space, flexibility and economy... providing you don't go for the 'hot hatch' version. 
Competition is tough in this sector too, so there are few duds to beware of. Our trio here are affordable and should each give 
| excellent service even if they offer differing propositions on street credibility - the Almera was axed primarily for its dull image. 

[OUR PICK FROM A KEY SECTOR 


HMD FOCUS 



BRITAIN'S favourite car. Or is it? Some say it's number one through 
Ford's formidable market share. Fair point, but the Focus is also great 
to drive, practical, well-made and blessed with good engines. For 
second-hand buyers there is a fantastic choice of power - including 
the rapid ST - trim levels and body styles: a smart saloon and estate 
plus a coupe convertible. The car's popularity and ordinary looks are a 
weakness though and reason enough for some buyers to look elsewhere.

NISSAN always struggled to glamorise the Almera, but devotees cher¬ 
ished its solid build and reliability. Used car buyers love it even more 
for its modest prices, though good ones can still fetch decent money. 
The five-door is the winner for all-round versatility, but the rarer 
three-door is sportier looking. The balance of driver appeal and ride 
is also well-judged and Nissan kept specs high to maintain the car's 
competitiveness in a tough sector before finally throwing in the towel.

MAZDA'S close relationship with Ford means that a lot of Focus 
resides beneath the skin of the Mazda3 and that means neat 
handling. Yet that skin also makes the Mazda stand out from its 
ubiquitous half-sister - a fact not lost on used car buyers looking for 
something distinctive. The 3' is mostly found as a capacious hatch¬ 
back, but there is also a sporty saloon that shares few panels with 
it. Engines are lively, in line with Mazda's sporty 'Zoom-Zoom' image.

relation to the use of the posting of material via the media owner’s online 
administration tool will be the responsibility of the advertiser. The advertiser 
indemnifies KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd against any damages as a result of misuse 
of these privileges by either the advertiser or any third party given password 
privileges by the advertiser. 

6. KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd reserves the right to change passwords intermittently 
to ensure the overall and ongoing security of its websites within the public domain. 

7. Copyright and licenses for voice-over/music/photography or film for advertising 
promotions or otherwise within the various forms of media in print, online and

or paid for by the advertiser where applicable. Approval or permissions must have 
been given by any potential beneficial owner voice-over or music. The advertiser 
must be able to verify any statements or claims (promotional or otherwise) in 
relation to their products/services promoted within any of the media offerings

8. Where shrinkage of an advertisement occurs for whatever reason, the 
advertisement will be charged to the nearest full centimetre where it relates to the 
media owner’s printed publications. This will NOT apply to full-page 
advertisements, which remain full pages even after shrinkage. 

9. KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd reserves the right to omit or refuse any 
advertisement/commercial/web content without notice or explanation. In these 
terms the word "advertiser” shall be construed to include any person or 
organisation placing an advertisement on behalf of another. 

10. A guarantee of insertion cannot be given and the media owners shall not be liable 
for any loss or damage caused by any error inaccuracy within your marketing 
content. In no case shall the total liability of the media owner for any error or 
omission exceed the price charged by the media owners for that advertising. 

11. No liability is accepted for any loss or damage alleged to have arisen through delay 
in forwarding replies to Box numbers, however caused, nor for the loss or damage 
to any artwork supplied. 

12. Claims for any error or inaccuracy in your media messages with KOS Media 
(Publishing) Ltd must be made in writing to the accounts department within 10 
days of publishing 

13. KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions 
made on their websites by the advertiser. 

14. KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd has the right to cancel the advertiser’s annual 
membership without notice should the advertiser deliberately publish out of date 
material or content on any of the media owner’s online digital platforms. KOS Media 
(Publishing) Ltd will seek to recover, in full, all outstanding invoices in relation to the 
signed annual membership as a result of the advertiser’s negligence in this regard 
and reserves the right to claim damages for any potential vexatious action via the 
advertiser. 

15. Advertisers are requested to check their advertisements after the first insertion. The 
media owner will not be responsible for any errors on subsequent insertions, which 
have not been advised to them in writing. 

16. A minimum of one month’s notice must be given in writing for any cancellation of 
the signed annual advertiser's agreement. Upon cancellation, all discounts from 
KOS Media’s standard effective media advertising rate card (July 2008-June 2009) 
will be recalculated and adjusted accordingly in line with KOS Media’s standard 
media rate card (effective July 2008-June 2009) and will reflect the revised length 
of commitment denoted by the advertiser’s written cancellation. Any surcharges, 
refunds or costs in relation to the production of the advertiser’s TV commercial for 
the commitment set out within the advertiser’s agreement will be met in full by the 
advertiser as per KOS Media’s standard media advertising rate card (July 2008- 
June 2009). Discounts will be reapplied and any refunds or surcharges will be paid 
by either party within 30 days of the advertiser’s written cancellation. Any other

18. All uplift advertisements must be booked in at least three months in advance of 
publication and will be subject to availability. All dates booked will be on a first- 
come, first-served basis. 

19. The advertiser must agree to the date and time of filming of any online TV 
advertising commercial supplied by KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd within the 
advertiser’s agreement, (Platinum, Gold, Silver standard of commercial). Should, for 
any reason, the advertiser not be available at the agreed time without giving 
sufficient notice (at least 48 hours), KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd reserves the right 
to charge for any further TV production at its standard published hourly rate should 
the advertiser still wish to use KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd’s production services to 
complete its TV commercial or photographic imagery included in the advertiser’s 
agreement. The advertiser will approve and accept that there are only two choices 
of voice-over and music offered by KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd. Should an 
advertiser wish to use other voice-overs or non-copyright free music it is the 
responsibility of the advertiser to pay the PRS rights should they be required to do 
so. Any changes to or failure to approve the TV production by the deadlines agreed 
between both parties will result in KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd being given 
permission by the advertiser to replace the TV commercial with pictures or stills 
from a choice of photography supplied by the media owner until the advertiser can 
supply a TV commercial produced at their own cost and risk outside of this 
agreement. The advertiser also accepts and agrees that this action would not 
reduce the value or cost of their membership. Any cost of changes required to the 
TV commercial throughout the advertiser’s agreement will be borne by the 
advertiser outside of this agreement. 

20. Each advertiser accepts that their ranking and position within KOS Media 
(Publishing) Ltd’s search engine will be equal to those within their category

search engine criteria of optimisation within their level (Platinum, Gold, Silver or 
Bronze). 

21. Any delivery claims made by the advertiser or discount vouchers published within 
the print or online media of KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd and any action as a result 
of the public or otherwise is the sole responsibility of the advertiser. Any claims 
resulting from this via KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd must be met by the advertiser. 

22. a. All credit accounts due for payment shall be notified to the Advertiser by the 30th 
day following the date of the invoice, time to be of the essence. All sums due to 
KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd or RBS Factoring shall be paid in full, and the Advertiser 
shall have no right of set off in any circumstances. 

b. In the event that payment is not received by KOS Media (Publishing) Ltd or RBS

advertising until payment is received and/or repudiate the contract and make any 
surcharges for breaking the contract.

balances calculated on a daily basis at the rate of two per cent above the minimum 
lending rate of National Westminster Bank Pic from time to time in force.

contrary, in the event of the Advertiser ceasing to use the services of KOS Media 
(Publishing) Ltd (for whatever reason), the whole amount of monies due from the 
Advertiser to the date of cessation shall fall due for immediate payment.

companies within the KOS Media Group as the result of legal action or threatened 
legal action or threatened legal arising from the publication of any advertisement 
or advertising promotion.

conditions, and any condition placed on an order by an Advertiser shall be null and 
void in so far as it conflicts with them.

Operating in the drug & alcohol and mental health sectors, 
KCA (UK) provides a wide range of high quality and 
innovative specialist services for adults and young people. 


Could you dedicate your business or professional skills for about 2 hours per month 
to genuinely help improve lives? 

Last year KCA worked with over 20,000 adults and young people to reduce the 
harm caused by drug, alcohol and mental health issues. 

Due to the retirement of long-standing trustees, we are looking for new volunteers 
who can offer time and enthusiasm to help oversee the continued development of 
this well respected charity. 

TRUSTEES 

The KCA board consists of 12 trustees who play a key role in ensuring that 
the organisation operates in line with its charitable objectives. Trustees meet 
regularly with members of the KCA senior management team to review 
performance, formulate policy and revise procedures. You would be directly 
involved in steering the continued success of this developing charity. Trustees 
attend meetings 8 times per year in Faversham (normally 17.30 to 19.30), and 
are also invited to attend service centres and occasional KCA events. 

We are looking for trustees who have an interest in the drug, alcohol and 
mental health issues. We particularly welcome applications from within finance, 
law and public services sectors and from people with experience in service 
provision, including previous service users. 

KCA was founded in 1975 and has approximately 300 staff operating in over 
20 service centres around the South East and in London. The organisation 
prides itself on developing innovative services, and on responding to the needs 
of the communities it serves. 

Expenses can be claimed by trustees. 

If you are interested or would like to know more, please contact the 
Chief Executive, Anton Derkacz (anton.derkacz@kca.org.uk) on 
01795 590635 or the Chair of Trustees, John Holroyde on 
jholroyde@btinternet.com, www.kca.org.uk 

KCA (UK) is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity for all and welcomes applications from 
people with experience of substance use or who have had previous problems with substance misuse.

BRIEFS 

An age-old problem 
that won't go away 

ALMOST half the working population - 
some 13 million people - is not saving 
enough to provide for a secure retire¬ 
ment, according to Kent-based Peter 
Camrass, a pensions planning expert. 

He says if you earn £30,000 a year and 
expect to enjoy the same standard of liv¬ 
ing when you retire, you should be set¬ 
ting aside £600,000 in savings. 

If you are 25, you should be saving 12 
per cent of your earnings for retirement. 
However, if you’re 40 and haven’t 
already started saving, this figure rises 
to 22 per cent - almost a quarter of your 
weekly pay packet. 

He said: “One problem is that we all 
have trouble seeing ourselves as old peo¬ 
ple and there’s always something better 
to spend our money on today. 

“There is also still an expectation that 
the state will provide, despite the fact 
that state pensions have been reducing 
in real terms for years.” 

Learn how to cope at 
seminar with a twist 

KENT Invicta Chamber of Commerce is

Both are free. Thursday’s event takes 
place at the Broadstairs campus of 
Canterbury Christ Church University 
between 8am and 9.30am. 

The Folkestone seminar at the same 
time on Tuesday, November 4, in Europa 
House. 

Conference in control 

FIFTY small businesses in Kent and 
Medway recently attended a breakfast con¬ 
ference titled Tougher Times? - Staying in 
Control, organised by the Federation of 
Small Businesses at Maidstone. 

Delegates heard from Steve Tancock, 
Maidstone-head of Smith and Williamson, 
and Shirley Moore, head of debt recovery 
and insolvency at Brachers Law, on how to 
contend with weaknesses in competitors, 
customers and their own business, and how 
to maintain their independence.

FEELING THE PINCH: Workers 
with the additional responsibility 
of caring for a long-term sick or 
disabled relative are being urged 
to plan for the worst by Acas 



Caring for the carer 


WORKERS who also care for long¬ 
term sick relatives or partners at 
home dread the thought of getting 
ill themselves - it’s their worst 
nightmare. 

Now they are being urged by the UK’s lead¬ 
ing employment relations specialist to think 
what would happen if they, too, get sick. 

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration 
Service (Acas) says there are an estimated 
737,750 people in this category in the South 
East - and they should seek proper advice. 

It reckons many carers are often too pre¬ 
occupied or worried about the person they care 
for to look after themselves, and if they become 


I BY TONY PATEY 


ill they are not only unable to look after their 
dependent but also can’t go to work. 

Paul Beard, area director at Acas South 
East, said: “Some employees may not even 
class themselves as a carer so it is important 
they find out what their rights are in the first 
instance. 

‘We would then advise employees to speak 
to their HR manager or line manager to see if 
there are ways to resolve any challenges they 
may be having balancing work and caring 
responsibilities. 

“Before any discussions it is a good idea for 
carers to think of ways in which they could 


overcome any challenges, while also bearing in 
mind how this may affect their colleagues and 
the business as a whole. For example, one 
solution may be to introduce flexible working 
or working from home one day a week.” 

The trend of combining work and caring 
responsibilities is not a short-term issue and is 
set to continue, says Acas. 

Some businesses already have flexible work¬ 
ing policies in place and evidence shows it not 
only benefits employees but also employers

BIG WINS: Folkestone's 2nd and 3rd sides cruised past their opponents on Saturday 


Stones show their strength 


WITH Folkestone RFC’s first team 
not in action following an early cup 
exit, the club’s second and third XVs 
enjoyed the limelight with big victo¬ 
ries on Saturday. 

The second team surpassed 70 
points for the second time in three 
weeks as they ran in 11 tries to 
demolish Ash 77-7 in a one-sided 
encounter. 

Stones head coach Lee Jeffery has 
already used several second XV 
players in the first team this sea¬ 
son. The manner of the victory, 
albeit against weak opposition, sug¬ 
gests there is plenty of strength in 
depth. Young trio Ben Crawford, 
Matt Brett and Jack Cox were par¬ 
ticularly impressive after promo¬ 



tion from the under-18 side. 

Ollie Brooks, returning after 
injury, produced a flawless display 
and opened the scoring with a try 
on five minutes. Wingers James and 
Drew Woolford then combined for 
the former to touch down for 
Folkestone’s second try. 

A lack of concentration allowed 
Ash to take a quick penalty and 
score under the posts, but from then 
on it was all Folkestone. 

James Woolford went on to bag a 
hat-trick of tries. Drew Woolford 
and Ollie Brooks scored two each, 
while Dave Baxter, Ben Brooks, Will 


Turner and 18-year-old hooker Jack 
Cox all touched down for a try 
apiece. 

The club’s third XV also hit form, 
beating Sheppey 78-0 when Luke 
Simpson top scored with a hat-trick 
of tries in the comfortable victory. 

The fourth XV found life tougher 
against Sheppey’s 3rd XV, going 
down 32-10 in a keenly fought con¬ 
test. Here, Steve Woolford scored 
Folkestone’s only try to cap off a 
man-of-the-match display. 

After a weekend away from com¬ 
petitive rugby, Folkestone’s first 
team return to action this weekend 
in London 4 South East with a 
home game against fellow mid¬ 
table side Crowborough. 


Bathgate penalty 
earns Deal victory 

A DAVE Bathgate penalty six minutes 
from time gave Deal Town their third 
successive victory to lift them up to sev¬ 
enth in the Kent League table. 

The late spot kick handed Town a 3-2 
win at struggling Lordswood at the end 
of a pulsating game at Martin Grove. 

Deal trailed 1-0 at the break but 
Kelvin Davies equalised five minutes 
into the second half. Lordswood, who 
went into the game without a point this 
season, re-took the lead but were pegged 
back by Aaron Robinson. 

Bathgate’s penalty handed Deal maxi¬ 
mum points ahead of Saturday 5 s League 
Cup tie at in-form Holmesdale.

Dover march on as 
opponents pull out 

DOVER RFC made it through to the sec¬ 
ond round of the EDF Energy Inter¬ 
mediate Cup after opponents Westcliff 
called the game off. 

They return to London 2 South action 
this weekend with a tough trip to Hamp¬ 
shire against second-placed Basing¬ 
stoke. The Sharks will be hoping to end 
a slump in form which has seen them 
lose their last three league matches. 

Deal & Betteshanger were well beaten 
by Old Elthamians in their last league 
match and they will also be hoping to 
bounce back on Saturday. They make the 
short trip to play Aylesford Bulls, who 
are one place and two points better off in 
London 3 South East.

TOUGH TIMES: Folkestone Invicta could lose their best players after revealing a financial crisis which could see manager Neil Cugley (below) leave the club 

'Financial meltdown' to 
spark Invicta exodus? 


FOLKESTONE Invicta’s directors 
were due to hold crisis talks with 
the squad last night to discuss the 
implications of the club’s financial 
problems. 

In a statement released on the club’s website 
on Friday, the board warned the Seasiders 
faced “financial meltdown” which threatened 
the club’s existence. 

The squad were all called in to the Buzzlines 
Stadium last night for a meeting, where they 
were expected to be told the club could not 
afford to pay their wages beyond next week. 

The first the players knew of the financial 
problems was last Thursday, when their regu¬ 
lar training session was cancelled. 

The squad will be asked to stay on, but they 
would be free to leave once their wages stopped. 
While the initial sentiment from the majority 
may be to stay on with Invicta, there will be no 
shortage of potential suitors poised to cherry- 
pick their best players. 

Long-serving manager Neil Cugley has 
already admitted he could leave if the crisis is 
prolonged. 

Midfielder Lee Spiller, who only signed for the 
club this summer, is intending to stay on regard¬ 
less but admitted there could be departures. 




■ BY DAVID PRITCHARD 


He said: “I’m hoping there won’t be too many 
lads who will go quickly They have been posi¬ 
tive so far but for some of the younger ones it’s 
their main job and they depend on the money 
to pay their mortgages. 

“Most of the older ones have experienced 
this before in their career, it’s quite common in 
semi-professional football. I don’t think there’s 
any initial panic. Fingers crossed it’s going to 
be okay, but we will know more in the next 
week or so. 

‘We just hope the club can get sorted out 
soon because we have been doing well so far 
this season and this chucks a spanner in the 
works. Everyone wants a bit of stability.” 

Early exits from both the FA Cup and FA 
Trophy meant a lack of precious prize money, 
but in the league the club have made a good 
start to the season. After 11 games they are 
third in the Ryman South and well-placed to 
make an immediate return to the Ryman 
Premier after relegation last season. 

Even if the club survive the problems off the 
field, it could be too late to keep their best play¬ 



ers, which would almost certainly put their pro¬ 
motion hopes on hold. 

Spiller, who runs an academy for young play¬ 
ers in Maidstone, is looking in to fund-raising 
ideas to help the club. He is looking into arrang¬ 
ing a charity game between his youngsters and 
Invicta’s youth team.

CoBn and Hughes ensure 
it's business as usual 




■ BY TOM HOWARD 


Staines TownO 
Dover Athletic 2 

(Collin 6, Hughes 89) 


* 

£3 


DOVER Athletic bounced back from the disap¬ 
pointment of their FA Cup exit to progress to 
the FA Trophy’s second round qualifying with 
a morale-boosting win at Staines Town. 

Frannie Collin’s sixth-minute free kick got 
the visitors off to the best possible start. Dover 
had to dig deep to protect their lead and only 
made sure of the victory in the closing stages 
when Jerahl Hughes made it 2-0, which pre¬ 
served Andy Hessenthaler’s record of never 
losing back-to-back games with the Whites. 

After two intense matches in the FA Cup 
against AFC Wimbledon, the Dover boss was 
delighted with his side’s efforts. 

He said: “It is always nice to bounce back 
with a win, especially at Staines, as it was 
their first defeat at home this season. They 
reached the play-offs last season and were 
only beaten by Wimbledon so they are a very 
good side. 

“To be fair to the players, to win at Staines 
after playing Wimbledon in midweek was bril¬ 
liant. At times it was a dull game and was not 
very pretty but I am really chuffed with a pro¬ 
fessional performance the players gave at the 
end of a difficult week.” 

After a fortnight of cup games, Dover turn 
their attention back to their league campaign 



CUP JOY: Frannie Collin (right) and Jerahl Hughes (left) struck to send Dover through to the next round of the FA Trophy 


Dover Athletic starting XI 



this weekend. The Whites have built up a four- 
point lead in the Ryman Premier and have 
two games in hand on their nearest rivals. 

They face a stem test of their title creden¬ 
tials on Saturday as they travel to fifth-placed 


Canvey Island. Jon Wallis is mled out with a 
hamstring problem, but Ollie Schulz and 
Giuliano Grazioli are in contention for recalls 
after spells on the sidelines. 

Dover will play either Canvey Island or 
Cambridge City in the second qualifying 
round of the FA Trophy. 

The Whites will entertain the winners of last 
night’s replay between the two sides at 
Crabble on November 1. Canvey Island are 
Dover’s opponents this weekend, while 
Cambridge City play their football in the 
British Gas Premier Division - a league on the 
same par with the Ryman Premier. City were 
demoted from Blue Square South last season 
due to problems with their Milton Road 
Ground.

Town are determined to learn 
from last season's mistakes 


FOOTBALL 


Hythe Town 1 Erith & Belvedere 1 

HYTHE Town manager Paul Fisk is hoping 
the experience of slipping up in the title race 
last season will help his side avoid repeating 
the same mistakes this campaign. 

After challenging for top spot for much of 
the season, Hythe faltered in the final month 
and finished up fourth. 

They have started in great form this term 
and briefly led the Premier Division after a 
3-2 win at Heme Bay last Wednesday. Fisk 
expects his side to be in a better position to 
cope with the pressure of leading the cham¬ 
pionship this time around. 

He said: ‘When we got to the top last sea¬ 
son we didn’t handle it at all, so I would hope 
that experience might be good for us. I don’t 
know whether they’ll handle it -1 don’t know 
if I will - but we’ll just have to see. 

“I think we are already the ones being shot 
at. Everywhere we have gone this season the 
other team have been up for it because I 
think they see us as the team to beat.” 

Hythe needed a second half strike from 
Dave Cook to maintain their unbeaten 
league record on Saturday. They trailed at 
the break against Erith & Belvedere, but 
Cook bagged his seventh goal of the season 
17 minutes from time to share the points. 

Holmesdale regained the lead at the top 
thanks to a last minute penalty at VCD. 

• Town were in action against Faversham Town last night. 
See www.yourshepway.co.uk for the report. 

This Saturday Hythe face struggling Sporting Bengal in 
the Premier Division Cup. 



ON TARGET: Dave Cookscored for the third successive game 
on Saturday, maintaining Hythe's unbeaten league record 



PROGRESS: Andy Hessenthaler believes his side have 
improved enormously over the past year 

Hess pleased with his 
team's return to form 

DESPITE being knocked out of the FA Cup 
by AFC Wimbledon last week, Dover 
Athletic boss Andy Hessenthaler believes 
his side have come a long way in the time 
he has been in charge. 

Hessenthaler, who took charge at Dover 
in May last year, played a full 90 minutes at 
Kingsmeadow in last Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat 
at Wimbledon. Aside from the result, he 
feels his side are not too far away from 
matching the quality of Blue Square South 
football. 

He said: “It just shows how far we have 
come as a club as we ran them very close 
over the two games. Listening to their reac¬ 
tion afterwards and their enjoyment of 
beating us - bearing in mind we are a 
league below - just shows how far we have 
come.” 

The former Gillingham midfielder said 
Dover were second best in the replay, but in 
hindsight he knows his side missed their 
chance to progress in the competition. 

He said: “I am disappointed but we were 
beaten by the better side over the 90 min¬ 
utes. It was a different story in the first 
match [a 0-0 draw at Crabble] when we had 
our chances but did not take them. It is our 
first disappointment of the season and we 
will have to take it on the chin. 

“I don’t think we have learnt anything for 
next year’s competition, only to hope for a 
kinder draw and not face AFC Wimbledon. 
I think we will take more from this defeat 
than if we won. We will move on from this 
and let’s not forget we are still in the FA 
Trophy and that is a big competition.” 

Hessenthaler gave his players the week 
off after their 2-0 win against Staines 
ahead of their league game with Canvey 
Island on Saturday. 

He added: “My players have worked real¬ 
ly hard in this last week, playing 
Wimbledon twice and Staines, so I am hop¬ 
ing to give them a rest this week so every¬ 
one can be fresh for the weekend.”
