Help The Heros
Found this cheeky little character and his friends, collecting money for 'Help the Heros' charity at The Ploughing Championships and Heavy Horse Show, held this year at Slade Farm, Rogate, West Sussex. If you see them around the county please give any loose change you can spare to this worthy cause.

Name Dropping!

Not satisfied with having my photo taken with Brian Blessed, Chris Packham, and Mike Dilger, I have now added Ben Fogle to my collection! Long Live the South Downs National Park!
