Best days of the year

It’s fair to say that 2016 has been an interesting year. Not only for the huge historical decisions that have been made but also for all the celebrities who have died this year. I also lost my grandma over Easter, which I would never have predicted this time last year.

But we have had some good days this year. Below are mine and Sophie’s top five. When I put my list together I realised that not many of mine were in East Sussex, so I’ve also done a list of my favourite East Sussex days.


5. An afternoon with my brothers in law at the rugby;

One of my best days of 2016

4. A trip round Canterbury cathedral;
3. Going to Hastings Pier for the first time since it reopened;

2. An unexpected beach day in St Ives when we were on holiday;

1. Seeing the Kaiser Chiefs live at Bedgebury Pinetum.

My best non-Sussex day of 2016
