Davy Jones, Green Party Par­lia­ment­ary Can­did­ate for Brighton Kemp­town dis­cusses protest music with Robb John­son and Bethan Prosser

LISTEN HERE

A cam­paign group in Brighton has arranged a protest to coin­cide with a coun­cil meet­ing, after pro­pos­als to close children’s centres across the city.

Brighton Children’s Centres Cam­paign (BCCC) will lead the march, which will go from New Road adja­cent to the Pavil­ion Gar­dens to Hove Town Hall.Thursday Feb­ru­ary 26.

The march will coin­cide with a coun­cil budget meet­ing at Hove Town Hall to approve plans to downs­ize and close children’s centres in the city.

Cllr. Sue Shanks, Chair of the Chil­dren & Young People Com­mit­tee at Brighton and Hove City Coun­cil, said: “We are facing cuts in our budget, but we are not pro­pos­ing to close centres, our pro­pos­als are about rais­ing tax.

I wel­come the protests — I wish more people protest about the things they do not like.”

The pub­lic con­sulta­tion about the pro­pos­als to close and reduce centres across the city received nearly 1,000 responses.

Last month the pro­pos­als were announced, which includes a cut of over £800,000 to children’s ser­vices across the city.

The BCCC is urging sup­port­ers to come along to the march, with signs and pictures.

LISTEN HERE TO DAVY JONES WITH DAVID FISHER FROM OUR BRIGHTON HIPPODROME CAMPAIGN

 38 Degrees mem­ber David Fisher has star­ted a peti­tion call­ing on Brighton & Hove Coun­cil to refuse plan­ning per­mis­sion to turn the Brighton Hip­po­drome into an 8 screen cinema. He’d like to see it restored and turned into a live venue, what do you think?

Here’s what David says:

The mag­ni­fi­cent Brighton Hip­po­drome needs your help to save it from being wrecked. It is a unique theatre build­ing, lis­ted Grade II* by Eng­lish Her­it­age because of its his­tor­ical and archi­tec­tural significance.

After clos­ing as a vari­ety theatre in 1965, it was a bingo hall until 2007. The stun­ning interior, how­ever, is still in remark­able con­di­tion, with very little deterioration.

Sud­denly, in mid 2013, a pro­posal to con­vert the build­ing into an eight-screen cinema emerged. The plans involve demol­ish­ing the stage, the fly-tower, all the back-stage facil­it­ies, the stalls and the orches­tra pit. Without these it ceases to be a theatre.”

New Hippodrome Petition: please sign

The pre­vi­ous peti­tion had a big impact in Brighton and on bod­ies con­cerned with theatre pre­ser­va­tion. Non­ethe­less, Brighton & Hove City Coun­cil gave plan­ning per­mis­sion for cinema/retail con­ver­sion of the Hip­po­drome on the grounds that it was the only scheme able to save (part of) the building.

We now under­stand that the developer has pulled out and the site is being sold on. Vue Enter­tain­ment, the cinema oper­ator, is no longer involved.

Theatre res­tor­a­tion is there­fore the default option. Our Brighton Hip­po­drome has been work­ing on a busi­ness and fin­an­cial plan. Our chances of suc­cess are much improved by the col­lapse of the unsuit­able scheme but we need to get the city coun­cil to work with us to ensure res­tor­a­tion for live performance.

Please take a moment to sign the new peti­tion ask­ing for the council’s backing.

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/council-must-help-save-brighton-hippodrome

When you’ve done that, please help to show the coun­cil and the rest of the world the over­whelm­ing pub­lic sup­port for the theatre pro­ject by spread­ing the word as widely as pos­sible by email, Face­book and Twitter.

Brighton Science Festival 2015 starts now!

List­ings here:http://www.brightonscience.com/events/

Brighton Sci­ence Fest­ival star­ted ten years ago, because… well, because every­one needs a sci­ence fest­ival. It’s the best way to dis­cover where we came from, deal with where we are and debate where we might go in the future. Yes, I know the shud­der of ter­ror that some people feel at the mere men­tion of the word ‘sci­ence’, but there is every reason to believe that can turn into a tremor of excite­ment. There are some extraordin­ary and inspir­ing sci­ence com­mu­nic­at­ors out there, and we search all the fest­ivals and pub­lish­ers in Bri­tain to bring the best to Brighton. The fest­ival is for all ages, but the ones we are par­tic­u­larly doing this for are 12–14 year-olds. When they arrive in sec­ond­ary school from primary school they are fired up with enthu­si­asm for sci­ence. Within two years they hate it. Why? The gov­ern­ment has recog­nised the prob­lem and fiddled with the school cur­riculum, try­ing to make it more user-friendly, but that hasn’t worked. There are two ele­ments miss­ing, which even the most ener­getic teach­ers (and I have met a lot of very, very keen teach­ers out there) have dif­fi­culty cop­ing with: There is no spirit of dis­cov­ery. Young people love to explore, exper­i­ment and cre­ate. They don’t mind mak­ing mis­takes along the way. But the cur­riculum doesn’t leave time for mis­takes. They have to get the right ver­sion in their books straight away, ready to move on to the next topic. There is no room for the spirit of dis­cov­ery. Secondly, their par­ents don’t join in. Schools often have sports days, when all the par­ents come along. They have school plays; all the par­ents come along. When they have sci­ence days the school is deser­ted. So the Fam­ily Fun days are there for both par­ents and their chil­dren to play, exper­i­ment, dis­cover and share the exper­i­ence. One year, at the Fam­ily Fun Days, a big man entered the room with his two young chil­dren and sur­veyed the tur­moil around him. Hove Park Upper School was heav­ing with a thou­sand mums, dads and kids, play­ing with sixty dif­fer­ent kinds of sci­ence delight. In this par­tic­u­lar room the chal­lenge was to build a bridge across a 40 cm gap strong enough to sup­port as many Mars bars as pos­sible, using only four sheets of paper. Dad’s eyes lit up. He said, “Stand aside kids. This one’s for me”. For the next fif­teen minutes he was immersed in the task, his chil­dren on either side, looked at him as if to say, “but… you’re a Dad, not an engin­eer.” As I watched I didn’t worry that the kids were being ignored. I knew that they were going to be engin­eers when they grew up. Why? because imit­a­tion is the key to career. What the par­ents enjoy, that’s what the kids will enjoy. Indeed, after a few minutes they were work­ing on their own bridges, unpromp­ted. The Brighton Sci­ence Fest­ival is build­ing its own bridges, between sci­ence and the people. You should come. Actu­ally you should bring a demon­stra­tion of your own. In point of fact, if you care for the future of man­u­fac­tur­ing in this coun­try, you should become a spon­sor. Get in touch to find out more. We hope to make sci­ence so irres­ist­ible to young stu­dents that the A-level courses are flooded with applic­ants. Already there is an increased uptake in Sus­sex. This is good. It means higher stand­ards and bet­ter choice for busi­nesses. Even for young people who decide to leave school at six­teen there will be an endur­ing interest in sci­ence and respect for sci­ent­ists and engin­eers. Come to the Fest­ival. Bring your fam­ily, bring your enthu­si­asm. Richard Robin­son Dir­ector Brighton Sci­ence Fest­ival — See more at: http://www.brightonscience.com/about-2/#sthash.pxmldRMC.dpuf

Anti Fracking update from Greenpeace

If we learned one thing in the last 7 days it’s this — when it comes to stop­ping frack­ing, the world moves fast!

In case you missed the dra­matic news, here’s what happened:

On Monday hun­dreds of us gathered out­side Par­lia­ment, ral­ly­ing MPs to vote against Cameron’s plan to make us power­less to stop fracking.

Fracking rally

Moments before the cru­cial vote, our peti­tion to MPs surged past 360,000 signatures.

360000 signatures on banner

Dozens of MPs vali­antly got behind our cause in West­min­ster, cham­pi­on­ing a frack­ing ban (which meant bad news for him…)

David Cameron

Though this wasn’t enough to defeat the prime minister’s plan, a chain reac­tion was about to begin. First, new rules to pro­tect water sources and national parks from frack­ing were announced.

Hill and river

Then on Wed­nes­day, some­thing incred­ible… Scot­land blocked fracking!

Frack free Scotland

While Scot­land breathes a sigh of relief, the ban is only tem­por­ary. We’ll need to keep the pres­sure on to make it per­man­ent. And in com­munit­ies on the front-line of frack­ing — like in Lan­cashire where Cuadrilla’s bul­ly­ing tac­tics mean that drilling could be approved within weeks — the fight goes on.

As we hatch new plans to take on the frack­ing industry in towns and on door­steps, we’ll make sure you’re the first to know what’s happening.

In the mean­time I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done to get us where we are now. The move­ment to stop frack­ing is stronger than ever — and that is truly some­thing to be proud of.

Richard

PS. The last 7 days will have riled the frack­ing industry — as things are now shift­ing in our favour. In the com­ing weeks they’ll go all out to claw the debate their way, so can you chip in to help stop frack­ing once and for all, through­out the UKTo quickly give £5, text FRACKNO to 70755.

You’ll be charged your nor­mal net­work rate as well as the £5 dona­tion. We’ll use your details to keep you updated on Green­peace cam­paigns, but you can opt out at any time. Full T&Cs.

 A Frack Free Com­pil­a­tion: For Sus­sex and Beyond…

LISTEN HERE

Buy the album here

Radio Free Brighton inter­view Ellie Wyatt from the local com­munity group Frack Free Sus­sex. She is the co-ordinator of the recent com­pil­a­tion album, ‘A Frack Free Com­pil­a­tion: for Sus­sex and bey­ond ‘, which will be released this week as a fun­draiser for the com­munity group Frack Free Sussex.

Nearly 100 musi­cians have donated their music to this eclectic and spir­ited 20 track album. Hugely pop­u­lar local acts such as Rubylux, The Meow Meows, The Moun­tain Fire­work Com­pany, Naomi Bed­ford and Car­rie Tree are just some of the artists who feel this is a cause to be supported.

All pro­ceeds will be used to con­tinue cam­paign­ing, edu­cat­ing and inform­ing the pub­lic of the issues sur­round­ing the devel­op­ment of an onshore uncon­ven­tional oil and gas industry in the UK. This is an issue which par­tic­u­larly affects Sus­sex, with applic­a­tions from com­pan­ies to drill wells in Bal­combe, Billingshurst and Wis­bor­ough Green cur­rently being fought, and with plans for new wells at Graff­ham and West Dean upcoming. The sup­port­ers of Frack Free Sus­sex, of which there are cur­rently over 10,000, are con­cerned that there could be wide-scale indus­tri­al­isa­tion of the Sus­sex countryside, bringing with it envir­on­mental and health prob­lems like ground­wa­ter con­tam­in­a­tion and air pol­lu­tion, as exper­i­enced in the US.

The CD is avail­able from the web­site www.frackfreesussex.co.uk/shop/ and at select stores around the county.

Hove res­id­ent Ellie Wyatt, the album co-ordinator said “That we had offers of music from nearly 70 artists for this album shows this is an issue many people care very deeply about. We are really proud of this album as it brings together some of the finest artists in Sus­sex and the music has a heart­felt and mean­ing­ful mes­sage for 2015. It is amaz­ing value to have 20 such diverse artists on one CD and we think it will make for an excel­lent stock­ing filler!”
