SOME FOLKS AS COMES TO SUSSEX,
THEY RECKONS AS THEY KNOWS
A DARN SIGHT BETTER WHAT TO DO
THEN SILLY FOLKS LIKE ME AND YOU
COULD POSSIBLY SUPPOSE.
BUT THEM AS COMES TO SUSSEX,
THEY MUSTN`T PUSH AND SHOVE,
FOR SUSSEX WILL BE SUSSEX,
AND SUSSEX WON`T BE DRUV.

ALL FOLKS AS COMES TO SUSSEX
MUST FOLLOW SUSSEX WAYS,
AND WHEN THEY`VE LARNED TO KNOW US WELL
THERE`S NO PLACE ELSE THEY`D WISH TO DWELL
IN ALL THEIR BLESSED DAYS.
THERE ANT NO PLACE LIKE SUSSEX
UNTIL YOU GOOS ABOVE,
BUT SUSSEX WILL BE SUSSEX,
AND SUSSEX WON`T BE DRUV!

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
