What do you get a very dear neighbour for his 90th birthday?
I thought I'd make up a Sussex hamper, seeing as he was born and bred here and often talks about how food tasted better in the old days.
As I was in Lewes for a couple of hours today, I had a look round and managed to get local honey, jam, chutney and beer.
Any other ideas?
(Sadly can't make it to any Farmer's Markets on Saturday)

That's a lovely idea mutter. Can you get out to Middle Farm? You would be spoilt for choice there and get could include MF's very own cider and sausages.

You could also try Laportes and the little Pleasant cafe for some local produce.

There's a local produce market under the market tower this morning (every Friday). You could make a banoffee pie.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Why didn't I think of a farm shop! Sounds perfect.
Thanks again.

I'm a fan of Middle Farm and its shop too. I've also heard good reports regarding the one just outside Offham too. I think your neighbour already has the best present he could wish for - someone who cares so much about him and his welfare, so rare these days in my experience. I wish you well in your endeavours and hope his birthday is a resounding success.

Lopster, that made me giggle far more than it deserved really, but I'll put it down to be tired and emotional after a long and stressful nightshift.
And Nancy, I don't recognise the angel you describe!
The old fella can be a right royal pain in the you-know-what too, mostly because he's got a lot more time to talk than I have to listen, but hey, you're only 90 once aren't you?
