I've lived within ten minutes of the South Downs all my life and loved it for as long. Recently I wrote this: Ten thousand times or more I’ve seen this view Of sisters seven, white, grey, green, blue. Haven Brow, Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flagstaff Point, Bailey's Hill, Went Hill. Today the cliffs were thronged with booted feet Of ramblers at their Sunday meet. Downland turf, brambles, gulls aswoop Meandering Cuckmere makes a loop. My family and their ghosts still rove these hills I see my cousins play among the ghylls. In rain, in sun, snow, clouds and hail, I’ve walked these downlands, cliff and dale. Ten thousand times again I hope to see this view Of sisters seven, white, grey, green, blue. Haven Brow, Short Brow, Rough Brow, Brass Point, Flagstaff Point, Bailey's Hill, Went Hill.
As an ardent hiker, walker, climber, I want to ensure that everyone can enjoy the beautiful trails and mountains. By supporting the MoM campaign, everyone is encouraging outdoor access, a healthy lifestyle and overall well-being, as well as the preservation of our gorgeous countryside. A truly worthy cause.
