It’s a dog’s life.
The Lightless Sky by Gulwali Passarlay.
Gulwali Passarlay was at The Grove Theatre Eastbourne last night talking about his book The Lightless Sky, a Q&A event put on by East Sussex Libraries.
Gulwali, who fled Afghanistan and endured a terrifying journey in the hands of people smugglers talked about his passage to the UK, life in the UK in the early days of his arrival and of his life now. One of the most charming people I have met, the evening was relaxed, informative and a delight.
Happy Halloween 👻🎃
And our very own Pumpkin loving the season.
Herstmonceux Castle Estate.
A beautiful sunny, warm autumn morning saw us heading out to the stunning 15th century moated Herstmonceux Castle, set in a beautiful estate featuring woodland trails, lakes, meadows and themed and formal gardens, including a magic garden with definite echos of Francis Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden).
Built as a luxurious fortified home in the mid 15th century by Sir Roger Fiennes, who had fought at Agincourt with Henry V, it is now owned by Queen’s University in Canada and is their UK campus as well as a visitor centre.
It’s is a magical location and well worth the £8 entrance fee

Eastbourne Airborne 2022.
Eastbourne Airborne made a welcome comeback this year after being cancelled two years running due to Covid.
Airbourne celebrates 28 years of airshow excellence in 2022. Attracting huge crowds, Eastbourne’s International Airshow boasts a 2 mile flying display line along Eastbourne seafront.
Displays for 2022 included the RAF Red Arrows, RAF Typhoon and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
I am lucky enough to live in the town so catch this event every year. It’s an annual event which brings locals, day trippers and holiday makers into Eastbourne and a much welcomed lift to the economy and vibrancy of the town.
