Sussex Living monthly update Dec 2016
It’s nearly time to say it… I’ll refrain here but read our December pages and you will receive Christmas wishes galore!
In our office we absolutely love this time of year – smiling faces, cheerful decorations, chilly walks, Christmas carols and of course, mince pies. We have gone Christmas crackers with our December issue, and hope you thoroughly enjoy it.
From meeting some local bell-ringers (page 28-30), feasting on some absolutely delicious festive food (from page 58) to our magnificent gift guides (starting page 19), you are guaranteed to get in the festive spirit.
This is also the time of year for thinking about others. Someone who has tirelessly fundraised for charity, in particular Marie Curie, is Sir Ranulph Fiennes, with an amazing total of £18.2 million raised so far. Lisa de Silva spoke to this extraordinary man who, in his 72nd year, is still forging forward with new adventures and even greater fundraising goals. Read this fascinating story from page 49.
We’ve got another great quiz for you this month, with the opportunity to win some generously donated prizes from our advertisers. Turn to page 26 to test your wits! And if you are in need of a very fun, family friendly project over the Christmas holidays, why not turn your hand to a little gingerbread baking? All the details are on page 62.
After all that festive feasting you will have plenty of energy for a lovely crisp walk, and thankfully we have just the thing for you. Turn to page 66 for Les Campbell’s walk around Whitman’s Green.
We are all off to our Christmas party now, but wish all our readers, advertisers and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
