The next time you're heading up from Brighton to London on the train watch out for a grey-haired chap with a sketch book. Look closer and you'll probably see less than flattering images of the country's political leaders unfolding. Whether it's Bo...

Also in this issue we've got some great ideas to help you make the most of summer. I love this time of year, the long sunny days (fingers crossed) mean there's plenty of opportunity to enjoy what's on offer across the county. Our intrepid Clive, of Challenge Clive fame, has assembled his top 50 ways to enjoy the season. You'll find everything from riding the steam train at the Bluebell Railway to Al Fresco Opera at Glyndebourne beginning on page 103.

It's also a great time of year to get out in the garden and Leigh Clapp offers a great guide to growing your own ingredients beginning on page 120. She's toured the county to ask experts such as James Sellick of Pashley Manor and Jane Dunn from Rushlake Green for their tips and tasty seasonal recipes.

And finally, do please keep your thoughts coming on the magazine and the things you'd like to see us feature. We've printed a lively Feedback page in this issue and we'd love to read more of your letters. You can email me, join the forum at or if you're on the move, take advantage of our new text message facility - look out for it on pages 95, 209, 223, 247, 248 and 257.

Enjoy your Sussex Life.
