For We're the men from Sussex, Sussex by the Sea.
We plough and sow and reap and mow,
And useful men are we;
And when you go to Sussex, Whoever you may be,
You may tell them all that we stand or fall
For Sussex by the Sea!
So say the words of ‘Sussex by the sea’ our county’s anthem.
Truth be told however, I’ve never ploughed, sowed, reaped, or mowed in my life! I am however a proud man of Sussex. I’m 50+ (age, not waistline), and far more likely to be found driving a spreadsheet or project plan than a tractor.
Interests include music of all types (though punk and indie are my roots), all sports, comedy, food, travel, and of course …….. quantum mechanics, molecular gastronomy, Proustian dystopianism, and exaggerated lying!
