“As I write this we’re just gone<br />

halfway through October, and it’s<br />

been quite a month, particularly<br />

in the FA Cup. When you read<br />

this you’ll probably know the<br />

result of the Crawley game in<br />

the fourth and final qualifying<br />

round of the competition, played<br />

on October 28th. Whatever the<br />

result, getting to play a dream<br />

derby against our local rivals<br />

from the Conference proper has<br />

been quite a result for <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Football Club. I’m just sorry that<br />

none of the games so far have<br />

been at home, so most of our<br />

fans haven’t been able to see us<br />

in the competition.<br />

We started out with a modest victory<br />

at Hendon. It wasn’t a great<br />

game against a team which is one<br />

70 minutes to get our first goal,<br />

and we didn’t wrap the game up<br />

until deep into injury time. Having<br />

said that they barely managed<br />

to create a chance, and in the<br />

Cup it’s not the performance that<br />

counts, it’s the result. I was very<br />

pleased to be in the draw for the<br />

next round.<br />

The FA did us no favours with<br />

that, pitching us against Dorchester<br />

away. It was a long journey<br />

to play a team in the same division<br />

who had made a similar start<br />

to the season as us. On paper it<br />

looked like anyone’s game, then:<br />

but on the pitch we absolutely<br />

battered them. We ended up winning<br />

4-0, with goals from Juke<br />

Box (Andy Drury), Gary Holloway<br />

and two from Boothie (Paul<br />

Booth). After a bit of a dry patch<br />

at the start of the season, Boothie’s<br />

We made a so-so start to the season,<br />

but I think we’ve turned the<br />

corner now. We’ve won four out<br />

of the last five games with clean<br />

sheets. The only hiccup was the<br />

game against Bishops Stortford at<br />

home, which we lost 3-2. It was<br />

a game we should have won by<br />

defence were magnificent, and<br />

while we had to work bloody hard<br />

for our two goals, we gifted them<br />

their three. The last goal in the<br />

Unfortunately here in East<br />

happening, as services are<br />

cut, prices increased, and so<br />

services become more marginal<br />

and end up being withdrawn.<br />

So what can we do here in<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong> to turn things round?<br />

Here is my list of suggestions.<br />

First, we need a decent and<br />

operating bus station. It is farcical<br />

that the present facility is allowed<br />

to languish largely unused, while<br />

buses crowd up East Street,<br />

disturbing local residents (and<br />

my offi ce staff) and making<br />

pedestrians wait on a narrow<br />

pavement. I have met the current<br />

owners of the bus station site who<br />

want to redevelop it for retail and<br />

an element of housing and made it<br />

clear to them that council policy<br />

quite rightly requires either that<br />

facility to be kept in use or another<br />

of equal or better usefulness to be<br />

provided elsewhere nearby. In<br />

practice, that would mean on the<br />

minutes frequency or less, to take<br />

people from the railway station to<br />

the main centres of employment<br />

and back again. Such a service<br />

should be provided at low cost<br />

to the user, or even free, paid for<br />

out of the profi ts from the <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

parking scheme. I believe such a<br />

service would be the biggest step<br />

we could take to persuade people<br />

not to bring their cars into town.<br />

Third, we need a new approach<br />

from the county council, one<br />

that actively engages the bus<br />

companies and starts from the<br />

premise that business needs to<br />

grow, rather than contract. That<br />

means improving the passenger<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong>’ managers shoot from the hip<br />

Steve King<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong> FC Manager<br />

“As I write this we’re just gone<br />

halfway through October, and it’s<br />

been quite a month, particularly<br />

in the FA Cup. When you read<br />

this you’ll probably know the<br />

result of the Crawley game in<br />

the fourth and final qualifying<br />

round of the competition, played<br />

on October 28th. Whatever the<br />

result, getting to play a dream<br />

derby against our local rivals<br />

from the Conference proper has<br />

been quite a result for <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Football Club. I’m just sorry that<br />

none of the games so far have<br />

been at home, so most of our<br />

fans haven’t been able to see us<br />

in the competition.<br />

We started out with a modest victory<br />

at Hendon. It wasn’t a great<br />

game against a team which is one<br />

rung down the league ladder, and<br />

struggling at that level. It took us<br />

70 minutes to get our first goal,<br />

and we didn’t wrap the game up<br />

until deep into injury time. Having<br />

said that they barely managed<br />

to create a chance, and in the<br />

Cup it’s not the performance that<br />

counts, it’s the result. I was very<br />

pleased to be in the draw for the<br />

next round.<br />

The FA did us no favours with<br />

that, pitching us against Dorchester<br />

away. It was a long journey<br />

to play a team in the same division<br />

who had made a similar start<br />

to the season as us. On paper it<br />

looked like anyone’s game, then:<br />

but on the pitch we absolutely<br />

battered them. We ended up winning<br />

4-0, with goals from Juke<br />

Box (Andy Drury), Gary Holloway<br />

and two from Boothie (Paul<br />

Booth). After a bit of a dry patch<br />

at the start of the season, Boothie’s<br />

really hit form, scoring five goals<br />

in as many games, and creating<br />

a number of assists, besides. But<br />

WWW.VIVALEWES.COM<br />

Steve King “Crawley was a dream draw”<br />

every single player was magnificent<br />

that afternoon. Afterwards<br />

their manager told me we were<br />

the best team they’d played that<br />

season by a mile.<br />

We made a so-so start to the season,<br />

but I think we’ve turned the<br />

corner now. We’ve won four out<br />

of the last five games with clean<br />

sheets. The only hiccup was the<br />

game against Bishops Stortford at<br />

home, which we lost 3-2. It was<br />

a game we should have won by<br />

a mile, but their goalkeeper and<br />

defence were magnificent, and<br />

while we had to work bloody hard<br />

for our two goals, we gifted them<br />

their three. The last goal in the<br />

87th minute was a real catalogue<br />

of errors. Leon Legge gave away<br />

a needless free-kick, Wilko (Paul<br />

Wilkerson) didn’t get enough<br />

men in the wall and his positioning<br />

was woeful, enabling their<br />

guy to virtually pass the ball into<br />

the net.

WellBeing Fest<br />

Organiser Claire Kirtland explains the<br />

whys and wherefores of the annual <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

WellBeing Fest.<br />

What is the <strong>Lewes</strong> WellBeing Fest?<br />

It’s an event which aims to inspire people to make<br />

a fresh start to the new year in terms of their<br />

health, personal growth and spiritual development.<br />

It’s a great way to start the New Year, after all that<br />

indulgence from the end of the previous one…<br />

Why <strong>Lewes</strong>?<br />

We have so many local practitioners in and around<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong> who dedicate their lives to supporting and<br />

helping people to lead more balanced, wholesome<br />

lives and this festival gives them a platform to<br />

promote their products and services. At the festival<br />

they offer advice and affordable taster treatments to<br />

those who are interested.<br />

How did it all start up?<br />

I took part in a health day which was held at <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Town Hall a couple of years ago and decided that I<br />

could do something very similar on a grand scale. I<br />

went to Rita Eccles, a local Bowen Therapist who<br />

had organised it, and she was happy for me to take on<br />

the project and make it my own. This is the second<br />

edition of the festival.<br />

What kind of things can we expect to see or<br />

experience?<br />

You will be able to fi nd out more about an eclectic<br />

mix of traditional and contemporary therapies<br />

including coaching, homeopathy, massage, emotional<br />

freedom technique, iris diagnosis and neurolinguistic<br />

programming. We are also showcasing<br />

stage demonstrations, including yoga for children,<br />

Tai Chi, Pilates and two days of free informative<br />

workshops inspirational music. There will be talks on<br />

topics ranging from stopping smoking, naturopathy,<br />

the power of good wishes and shamanism. You can<br />

also try out a range of organic vegetarian cuisine, raw<br />

food and delicious juices.<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

What happened at the last one?<br />

Last year was a huge success, over a thousand people<br />

turned up, and we got lots of positive feedback from<br />

people who attended, as well as traders. So we have<br />

extended this event to two days this year. The only<br />

thing we need to concentrate on this year is keeping<br />

sounds levels to a minimum!<br />

Ceramic artist Jos<br />

Local ceramic artist Jos uses a very unusual medium<br />

for her pottery: her breasts. After she was diagnosed<br />

with breast cancer in 2005, Jos decided to immortalise<br />

her pre-operative fi gure by turning it into a piece<br />

of art. And raising money for charity – a share of the<br />

sale-price goes to fund breast cancer research. Taking<br />

a plaster cast of herself before her mastectomy, she<br />

has used it to produce a range of ‘busts’ using a variety<br />

of different methods. Each one has a unique quality<br />

or personality, and they have even been named<br />

accordingly.<br />

Meeting Jos at her home, I am introduced to them all<br />

one by one as if to a group of friends. “This is Ruby”,<br />

she tells me, producing a classical-looking sculpture<br />

with a reddish glow and decorated with a pink ribbon.<br />

“This was one of the fi rst”, she continues, “I would<br />

never sell her. I think she’s gorgeous.” She brings out<br />

another, black this time, decorated with a spiral effect<br />

and the breastplate latticed together with pink ribbon.<br />

What’s this one called? I ask. “Madonna.” I say<br />

that it looks a bit like the cone-like structures which<br />

Madonna wore in the Like A Virgin tour. “I felt a bit<br />

virginal”, she concedes. “It was very soon after the<br />

operation, and I felt like I’d been re-born anew with<br />

WWW.VIVALEWES.COM<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

a different body”. She lifts out another (‘Aurora’)<br />

which has a shiny surface decorated with a multi-coloured<br />

marbled effect, produced by a method called<br />

raku. “You never know what you’ll get with this technique<br />

(treating it with minerals and salt and blasting<br />

it at high temperature) – its like alchemy!”<br />

I am still feeling slightly self-conscious about the fact<br />

that we are examining something so personal so I ask<br />

if she ever gets embarrassed. “I don’t feel like they’re<br />

me, though”, says Jos. “At the point when the plaster<br />

is sticking to your body it is part of you, and then<br />

it separates into something else.” Hence the names.<br />

“Yes, the naming is the completion of that process of<br />

detachment. Although I still love and care for them.<br />

Also the names enable other women to identify with<br />

them. And it represents the fact that I’m not unusual.”<br />

Jos will be exhibiting her work during the weekend of<br />

the WellBeing Festival where she will also be available<br />

to take commissions. “All sorts of people ask to<br />

have casts taken. Some for the same reasons as me,<br />

others give them as unusual gifts to their partners.” V<br />

Pure Bliss<br />

WWW.VIVALEWES.COM<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

Bliss have written a number one single and been covered by<br />

Sinead O’Connor. Their songs are beautiful packages of delicate<br />

power. A small army of dedicated fans ensure their gigs<br />

nearly always sell out. Yet hardly anyone’s heard of them. We<br />

talk to lead singer Lucinda Drayton to fi nd out why.<br />

Your band’s music is very unusual. How would<br />

you describe it?<br />

We intend to bring healing, comfort and spiritual<br />

knowledge through our music. When I sing I connect<br />

to the source… god, or whatever name you give<br />

it. This connection brings a vibration to the music<br />

that gives it a different feel.<br />

How did Sinead O’Connor come to cover the<br />

song ‘A Hundred Thousand Angels’?<br />

I worked with some people who were friends of hers<br />

and they must have given her an album. It was an<br />

honour to have her cover it. The song is about the<br />

fact we are not alone, we are guided if we listen, and<br />

help will come if we have courage. Our eternal parent<br />

never lets us down. This is my experience. Yes, rough<br />

times come and yes, I am scared sometimes and confused<br />

at times, but when I sit in silence and go inside<br />

and come back to peace, I feel the presence of the one<br />

who never leaves me. There are angels close by.<br />

Many people have compared your voice with<br />

Sinead’s…<br />

That’s a compliment because Sinead sings with her<br />

whole being, she’s raw and open and scary and gives<br />

herself. It’s my aim to also open up to this level, in<br />

my own way.<br />

Is it possible for you to pinpoint any musical infl<br />

uences on the sound you have developed?<br />

Not really. I just sit and let it come through. I’m sure<br />

we have been subtly infl uenced by all the great musicians<br />

we have listened to. My fave is Rickie Lee Jones<br />

and we both listen to a lot of world music.<br />

Why aren’t you on a conventional record label?<br />

Nobody knows what to do with this music.<br />

You also seem to have a very unique philosophy.<br />

Can you describe what it is?<br />

We are all eternal souls. Points of pure consciousness.<br />

When we view the world from this perspective everything<br />

changes. As a soul I cannot die, I also have<br />

the inherent qualities of peace, purity, power truth<br />

love and happiness. Maintaining this awareness is the<br />

challenge.<br />

How much are your spiritual beliefs woven into<br />

the music you produce?<br />

They are completely interwoven, I just tell the truth<br />

about my experiences and what I have learned. I do<br />

believe that artists catch the subtle worlds and bring<br />

them here for others to experience. To me music<br />

is the language of the heart. It goes straight to the<br />

heart, by-passing the intellect. Thus my aim is to create<br />

a dialogue, an experience in the audience. I don’t<br />

feel that I am an entertainer anymore. We share an<br />

experience.<br />

How important is commercial success to you?<br />

Listen, I’d love to win a Grammy and make great<br />

money. I’d love to buy an ambulance for the India<br />

project I support and pay my musicians really well.<br />

However it’s not what drives me. I would make music<br />

if the world ended tomorrow. I have to do it… it’s<br />

like breathing.<br />

Can you tell us about your annual trips to India?<br />

India is a jewel in my heart. When I go there I go on<br />

retreat. I stop I sit with God. I walk, I am touched by<br />

her people and fascinated by the light and the colour.<br />

It is my spiritual home and one of the places in the<br />

world I will always go back to.<br />

What can people expect of your gig?<br />

Me doing what I love. Singing to people from my<br />

heart about things that matter to me. A space of deep<br />

peace. A place to let go of old hurts. Healing. LOVE.<br />

Together we create this. V<br />

Bliss will be playing live at the Wellbeing Festival<br />

on Sat 13th (12pm & 3pm) and Sun 14th (12pm &<br />

3pm)<br />

Lucinda Drayton will be giving a talk on ‘The Power<br />

of Good Wishes’ (2pm – Free)<br />

Marina Pepper<br />

Environmental Activist<br />

“There is a huge crisis looming in terms of the<br />

effect climate change is going to have on our normal<br />

lives,” says Marina Pepper, the feisty current Chair<br />

of the <strong>Lewes</strong> District Council. “The time has come<br />

for every individual to play their part.”<br />

Pepper, who is speaking on the subject at the<br />

Wellbeing Fest on 1pm on Sunday 14th, isn’t<br />

just another stuffy politician paying lip service to<br />

climate change to attract votes. She is a remarkable<br />

individual, a former Playboy model brought up as<br />

a hippy; a practising Wiccan who fervently believes<br />

in her message and the need to make it plain that<br />

every individual needs to change their way of<br />

thinking and behaving in order to avert global<br />

disaster.<br />

“I sense people are waiting for the government to<br />

do something about the situation,” she says. “But<br />

governments are like huge tankers. They don’t turn<br />

quickly. They can’t help us in our current situation.<br />

We have to help ourselves.”<br />

Pepper is very aware that the environmental<br />

movement has to shed its worthy-but-dull image<br />

in order to appeal to people to change their<br />

behaviour to try to halt global warming, and she<br />

certainly doesn’t preach a dull sermon. Take using<br />

bed warmers instead of leaving the heating on.<br />

“When I mention bed warmers, people say they<br />

aren’t sexy,” she says. “But I have a 5’10” axewielding<br />

anarchist in my bed, and he’s doing the<br />

job lovely.”<br />

“Everybody can do more to make their carbon<br />

footprint smaller,” she continues. She will be using<br />

her slot in the Wellbeing Fest to try to let people<br />

know just what they can do. “People point to the<br />

TV-dinner-eating families who wear vests indoors<br />

in winter with the heating right up as the cause of<br />

all the problems,” she says. “But it is important<br />

that people who understand the issues take a look<br />

at their own behaviour. Everyone can always do<br />

more.”<br />

WWW.VIVALEWES.COM<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

She points to food consumption and leisure<br />

activities as two areas where people inadvertently<br />

damage the environment the most. “Even leaving<br />

the TV on standby when it’s not in use contributes<br />

heavily to carbon emission.” Such behaviour is not<br />

allowed in her home. “My kids left the TV on one<br />

too many times, so I threw it into the recycling<br />

bin,” she says. “They retrieved it, but they got the<br />

message. They haven’t left it on again.” V<br />

Marina Pepper is an active journalist with a<br />

column in the web version of the New Statesman<br />

(www.newstatesman.com) and a weekly Radio<br />

5 show. From next month she will be writing a<br />

monthly column for the <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Lewes</strong> Handbook.<br />

You can also meet Marina on February 4th in<br />

Southover Grange at Seedy Saturday, a District<br />

Council enterprise encouraging home-grown<br />

food. More details later on www.vivalewes.com<br />

Leo Rutherford<br />

The Way of the Shaman<br />

I call Leo Rutherford, the Founder for Eagle-Wing<br />

Centre for Contemporary Shamanism, to fi nd out<br />

a little about what contemporary shamanism is all<br />

about. I have various preconceptions about the<br />

subject, and a mental image of a Native American<br />

fi gure dancing by a fi re in a trance. I mention this.<br />

“Actually the term shamanism comes from Siberia,<br />

and was used to denote healers, therapists, herbalists,<br />

generally people who<br />

set about putting things<br />

right,” he says. “In fact<br />

the term was either<br />

‘Saman’ or ‘Shaman’ and<br />

this is important, because<br />

it derives from the Indo<br />

European ‘Sa’ which went<br />

on to become ‘Savoir’ (to<br />

know) in French and saber<br />

in Spanish. So a shaman<br />

was ‘one who knows, one<br />

who sees’: somebody with<br />

‘one foot in the everyday world, and the other in the<br />

unseen/spirit world’.”<br />

WWW.VIVALEWES.COM<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

“Far enough back we all come from shamanic<br />

cultures,” he continues. “Back in history, all sets of<br />

understandings were earth-based. Druidry was the<br />

same sort of thing; ‘heathen’ for example, means<br />

‘seeing God in the heath’.” He tells me how we<br />

lost that set of beliefs with the ‘invention’ of ‘God’.<br />

“This happened 3-7,000 years ago, when the Godchap<br />

(and it was always a him) was made separate<br />

from the act of creation.” He sees this belief as being<br />

fundamentally fl awed. “If a god created the world,<br />

who created the God? You can’t separate the creator<br />

and the creation.”<br />

Contemporary shamanism, he then explains, is a<br />

fundamental shift in current understanding to reorientate<br />

the relationship between yourself and<br />

everything around you. “We don’t have to believe in<br />

someone else’s fantasy of a god. We are part of nature,<br />

we are not separate from it. We can live it, feel it,<br />

touch it, experience it.” His role as a contemporary<br />

shaman is helping people to achieve this. “We have<br />

a large bag of tools to help people get in touch with<br />

themselves and gain a deeper understanding of<br />

everything that is around them.”<br />

There are, apparently, many different methods used<br />

to achieve this one-ness with one’s surroundings.<br />

“It’s all about altered states. One method is to make a<br />

meditative journey to parallel worlds with the aid of a<br />

drum. Another is simply being quiet, with nature all<br />

around you. Another is trance dancing whereby you<br />

get out of your head, and into your being.” I wonder<br />

if such journeys can be psychologically dangerous.<br />

“We make sure that it isn’t,” he says. “Myself and<br />

my colleagues have studied and practiced for a very<br />

long time. I have been running courses and studying<br />

for over 25 years.” We end our conversation, but I’m<br />

dying to know more. And I can.<br />

WELLBEING FEST<br />

WB14<br />

We try out...<br />

A foot scanning machine<br />

I’m invited by Sussex Podiatrists to try out their<br />

foot-scanning machine, or orthoscanner, so I<br />

run down the High Street to their surgery in St<br />

Andrews Lane. I’m quite excited by what’s about<br />

to happen. The machine is one of only six in<br />

the UK - and indeed the world - which can scan<br />

your feet for any abnormalities while they are in<br />

motion. It’s quite a breakthrough, apparently,<br />

because normally podiatrists and chiropodists<br />

examine your feet in a static state, while the<br />

machine takes over ten thousand pictures of<br />

them as you walk about on it. This, apparently,<br />

makes all the difference.<br />

I’m met by a pleasant Canadian woman called<br />

Penny who asks me about my case history. Having<br />

given her the usual drawl about football injuries<br />

and a weak right ankle, I’m rather alarmed to be<br />

told to take off my trainers and socks: I rest my<br />

feet on her knees and she examines them. She<br />

looks interested, and thankfully, not too offended.<br />

Hell, even I leave my feet well alone.<br />

She tells me my arches have collapsed and my toes<br />

have curled up, which she attributes to the use<br />

of fl ip-fl ops. She puts one of my trainers on the<br />

machine - which consists of a platform about ten<br />

foot long and three wide, with banisters around it<br />

- and gets it scanned. The picture comes up on a<br />

screen on a desk. The shoe is – I can immediately<br />

see - seriously lop-sided. “You walk on the inside<br />

of your foot,” she says. It’s not looking good. I’m<br />

told to get onto the machine and I follow various<br />

instructions. Occasionally I look at the screen and<br />

see photos of my feet. It’s quite fun. Eventually<br />

I’m told we’ve fi nished: I put my shoes and socks<br />

back on. I make an appointment for several days<br />

later to get my results.<br />

It’s Penny’s business partner Clive who gives me<br />

the bad news. I have serious problems, it seems.<br />

He runs through a report. It says things like<br />

‘from heel strike through to forefoot loading<br />

there is a dynamic increased level of rearfoot<br />

pronation that is secondary to the external tibial<br />

torsion on the right limb.’ The bottom line,<br />

Clive charmingly explains, is that my right foot is<br />

seriously out of line with my leg bone. And hence<br />

my toes point inwards at a seven-degree angle.<br />

This, apparently, is quite severe. It seems that if<br />

I don’t take action then all sorts of hip, knee and<br />

ankle problems might occur: he’s surprised they<br />

don’t already. The remedy is simple. They can<br />

make me up some bespoke orthotics – specially<br />

sculpted plastic insoles - which will right my<br />

posture. They can’t mend things, he says, but<br />

they can stop them from getting worse. They’ll<br />

help me walk properly, and more comfortably.<br />

They haven’t arrived yet, but they will shortly. So<br />

if you see me walking down the street in January,<br />

expect a much less loping gait. V<br />

“As I write this we’re just gone<br />

halfway through October, and it’s<br />

been quite a month, particularly<br />

in the FA Cup. When you read<br />

this you’ll probably know the<br />

result of the Crawley game in<br />

the fourth and final qualifying<br />

round of the competition, played<br />

on October 28th. Whatever the<br />

result, getting to play a dream<br />

derby against our local rivals<br />

from the Conference proper has<br />

been quite a result for <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Football Club. I’m just sorry that<br />

none of the games so far have<br />

been at home, so most of our<br />

fans haven’t been able to see us<br />

in the competition.<br />

We started out with a modest victory<br />

at Hendon. It wasn’t a great<br />

game against a team which is one<br />

rung down the league ladder, and<br />

struggling at that level. It took us<br />

70 minutes to get our first goal,<br />

and we didn’t wrap the game up<br />

until deep into injury time. Having<br />

said that they barely managed<br />

to create a chance, and in the<br />

Cup it’s not the performance that<br />

counts, it’s the result. I was very<br />

pleased to be in the draw for the<br />

next round.<br />

The FA did us no favours with<br />

that, pitching us against Dorchester<br />

away. It was a long journey<br />

to play a team in the same division<br />

who had made a similar start<br />

to the season as us. On paper it<br />

looked like anyone’s game, then:<br />

but on the pitch we absolutely<br />

battered them. We ended up winning<br />

4-0, with goals from Juke<br />

and two from Boothie (Paul<br />

We made a so-so start to the season,<br />

but I think we’ve turned the<br />

corner now. We’ve won four out<br />

of the last five games with clean<br />

sheets. The only hiccup was the<br />

game against Bishops Stortford at<br />

home, which we lost 3-2. It was<br />

a game we should have won by<br />

a mile, but their goalkeeper and<br />

defence were magnificent, and<br />

while we had to work bloody hard<br />

for our two goals, we gifted them<br />

their three. The last goal in the<br />

exciting exhibition in the Star<br />

Hayley Mills has close links with<br />

India, and she devised the show<br />

having fallen in love with Indian<br />

miniature art. She decided to<br />

invite a number of artists she has<br />

contact with, from Sussex and<br />

from London as well as select<br />

graduates from the University<br />

of Brighton, to produce original<br />

art works for the show, which is<br />

entitled ‘Stardust’. The only limits<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong> FC Manager<br />

“As I write this we’re just gone<br />

halfway through October, and it’s<br />

been quite a month, particularly<br />

in the FA Cup. When you read<br />

this you’ll probably know the<br />

result of the Crawley game in<br />

the fourth and final qualifying<br />

round of the competition, played<br />

on October 28th. Whatever the<br />

result, getting to play a dream<br />

derby against our local rivals<br />

from the Conference proper has<br />

been quite a result for <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Football Club. I’m just sorry that<br />

none of the games so far have<br />

been at home, so most of our<br />

fans haven’t been able to see us<br />

in the competition.<br />

We started out with a modest victory<br />

at Hendon. It wasn’t a great<br />

game against a team which is one<br />

rung down the league ladder, and<br />

struggling at that level. It took us<br />

70 minutes to get our first goal,<br />

and we didn’t wrap the game up<br />

until deep into injury time. Having<br />

said that they barely managed<br />

to create a chance, and in the<br />

Cup it’s not the performance that<br />

counts, it’s the result. I was very<br />

pleased to be in the draw for the<br />

next round.<br />

The FA did us no favours with<br />

that, pitching us against Dorchester<br />

away. It was a long journey<br />

to play a team in the same division<br />

who had made a similar start<br />

to the season as us. On paper it<br />

looked like anyone’s game, then:<br />

but on the pitch we absolutely<br />

battered them. We ended up winning<br />

4-0, with goals from Juke<br />

Box (Andy Drury), Gary Holloway<br />

and two from Boothie (Paul<br />

Booth). After a bit of a dry patch<br />

at the start of the season, Boothie’s<br />

really hit form, scoring five goals<br />

in as many games, and creating<br />

a number of assists, besides. But<br />

every single player was magnificent<br />

that afternoon. Afterwards<br />

their manager told me we were<br />

the best team they’d played that<br />

season by a mile.<br />

We made a so-so start to the season,<br />

but I think we’ve turned the<br />

corner now. We’ve won four out<br />

of the last five games with clean<br />

sheets. The only hiccup was the<br />

game against Bishops Stortford at<br />

home, which we lost 3-2. It was<br />

a game we should have won by<br />

a mile, but their goalkeeper and<br />

defence were magnificent, and<br />

while we had to work bloody hard<br />

for our two goals, we gifted them<br />

their three. The last goal in the<br />

87th minute was a real catalogue<br />

of errors. Leon Legge gave away<br />

a needless free-kick, Wilko (Paul<br />

was woeful, enabling their<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong>’ managers shoot from the hip<br />

Steve King<br />

<strong>Lewes</strong> FC Manager<br />

“As I write this we’re just gone<br />

halfway through October, and it’s<br />

been quite a month, particularly<br />

in the FA Cup. When you read<br />

this you’ll probably know the<br />

result of the Crawley game in<br />

the fourth and final qualifying<br />

round of the competition, played<br />

on October 28th. Whatever the<br />

result, getting to play a dream<br />

derby against our local rivals<br />

from the Conference proper has<br />

been quite a result for <strong>Lewes</strong><br />

Football Club. I’m just sorry that<br />

none of the games so far have<br />

been at home, so most of our<br />

fans haven’t been able to see us<br />

in the competition.<br />

We started out with a modest victory<br />

at Hendon. It wasn’t a great<br />

game against a team which is one<br />

rung down the league ladder, and<br />

struggling at that level. It took us<br />

70 minutes to get our first goal,<br />

and we didn’t wrap the game up<br />

until deep into injury time. Having<br />

said that they barely managed<br />

to create a chance, and in the<br />

Cup it’s not the performance that<br />

counts, it’s the result. I was very<br />

pleased to be in the draw for the<br />

next round.<br />

The FA did us no favours with<br />

that, pitching us against Dorchester<br />

away. It was a long journey<br />

to play a team in the same division<br />

who had made a similar start<br />

to the season as us. On paper it<br />

looked like anyone’s game, then:<br />

but on the pitch we absolutely<br />

battered them. We ended up winning<br />

4-0, with goals from Juke<br />

Box (Andy Drury), Gary Holloway<br />

and two from Boothie (Paul<br />

Booth). After a bit of a dry patch<br />

at the start of the season, Boothie’s<br />

really hit form, scoring five goals<br />

in as many games, and creating<br />

a number of assists, besides. But<br />
