Welcome to this week’s newsletter and your basket of Sussex delights.
If last week was all about eating, this week has been all about the drink, with a few sunrises and long walks thrown in for good measure. In fact, as I write, I’m digging deep and preparing for a wine tasting event (nobody told me being a writer would be this hard).
As we’re very nearly a quarter of the way through the year (yes, already), I thought it was time to indulge ourselves with a thoroughly delicious weekend away – and if you’re up for that, check out our itinerary for a Brighton and Arundel mini-break. You really don’t have to travel far to enjoy an absolutely stellar weekend.
Earlier this week, and on a gloriously sunny afternoon, I set off to the far west of our county to visit Ashling Park vineyard and their new Gin School … yes, you read that correctly, and yes, what a wonderful idea.
Bringing us back onto a more cerebral level, I also stopped off at St Botolph’s Church at Hardham to see the 12th century Sussex frescoes. And then, because all good things should end with a walk (in my opinion), I took to the South Downs for a mightly long walk with stunning views of Lewes and the River Ouse.
While I’ve been gallivanting, our Sussex health expert has been working hard, and if all that rich food has given you a pain, you might want to check out her article about gallstones.
That’s it for now, have a great weekend and enjoy the fabulous sunshine.
