Welcome to this week’s newsletter.
Well, this week the rain hasn’t stopped play and football fever has come to Sussex much like the rest of the country. Meanwhile, in between dodging a few storms, I’ve spent most of this week in the west of West Sussex. Thorney Island is a curious place but a worthy Sussex coastal walk and a chance to get off the beaten track and with so much else in the area to enjoy, you might as well make a weekend of it and book yourself into a charming and secluded shepherd’s hut.
As water dripped through the light fittings and the ceiling collapsed at SE HQ, it seemed an opportune time to try my hand at chutney and jam tasting which I honestly didn’t know could be so much fun (it’s been a long year). This in turn led me back to the village of Steyning. If you haven’t visited it for a while, you should. It’s a great and historic little town.
That just leaves time to book your tickets for the Petworth Festival which starts next week and really does have an incredible line-up. And it’s so nice to be able to start enjoying the arts again at last.
That’s it for now. We’re off to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, so do say hello if you see us there. And I hope you manage to stay dry!
