Great Dixter's Garden and other gardens in East Sussex

While the whole of the UK is in Covid 19 lockdown, we have been enjoying the social media feed of our local gardens, as we cannot visit. Bluebells in Hole Park, Tulips at Pashley Manor House and Garden and the fabulous planting and nursery at Great Dixter, in East Sussex. We have been enjoying the birdsong and nature in our own garden and really appreciate the great outdoors with our one a day allowed exercise quota.

Small steps, big changes

Small steps, big changes

I had planned this current blog before Covid-19 was even a reality but it seems quite fitting at the moment. Whilst the globe battles with the pandemic, our planet is benefiting hugely. With flights grounded, cities and towns without rush hours, more people choosing to walk, cycle or run, local to home, so less traffic on the roads. Shopping conscientiously by most and using up what is in our larders and freezers. Many reinstating the vegetable patch, as more time at home due to lockdown and with less traffic everywhere nature and wildlife are enjoying a freedom they haven’t had in centuries. So in these difficult times, it’s nice to know that some good is being felt around the world. Hope you enjoy the read.

Sports tourism

Sports tourism

Monday motivation is often needed as we start a new week and continue our healthy resolutions we made back in January. Need a little help to stick to the plan? How about picking a running event or triathlon somewhere in East Sussex? Discover new places and somewhere new to run, cycle or swim and fall in love with our south eastern pocket of the UK. Lots of events happening throughout the year and I find having something to train towards, keeps me motivated and Nice Work Events and Trispirit Events are two local companies who have challenging races to compete in. So come and join the growing band of travellers who are enjoying Sports tourism and experience a 'micro gap'.
