From Holy Trinity Why is Sussex such a pleasant county? Some might say, ‘because of the Downs’ or ‘because of its interesting coastline’, but for me it’s the trees – particularly the older mixed age woodlands, some of which can be classed as ‘ancient woodlands’. Most of the county was woodland at one time and Ashdown and St Leonards forests give us an idea of how the landscape must have looked. The natural life cycle of deciduous trees is much longer than our human life cycle. The more mature oaks in Nymans woods, for instance, are probably about 200 years old, which means that they were saplings at the time of the battle of Waterloo. It’s possible that some of them were planted to grow ‘ship timber’ for the Royal Navy but, if so, that purpose has been overtaken by events! It’s true that one of the most interesting things about sylviculture is the long term nature of the business. The forester who plants conifers to produce softwood for multiple uses, including house building, will no longer be working when they reach maturity at 70 years or more, but he will ‘harvest’ some of those planted by his predecessors. And so the business is carried on. On a philosophical note, I suppose the same could be said of us: we reap the benefits of the work, and sometimes the sacrifice, of our predecessors, and hope to leave something worthwhile – personally, locally and nationally – for our successors. Our local woodlands are particularly beautiful at the moment, I thoroughly recommend a walk there if you haven’t been for a while. Michael Loveridge 4

News and Views from St. John’s, Coolhurst Christina and I spend our holidays in Gloucestershire and often venture over the border into Wales. One of our favourite destinations is Tintern Abbey set in the valley of the river Wye on the Welsh bank next to the river. William Wordsworth composed one of his most famous poems about the abbey on the 13th July 1798 and much of the poem reminds me of St John’s in his depiction of its setting amongst nature. With Michael’s wonderful piece on our woodland I thought I would share the beginning of poem with you. Five years have past; five summers, with the length Of five long winters! and again I hear These waters, rolling from their mountain-springs With a sweet inland murmur.—Once again Do I behold these steep and lofty cliffs, Which on a wild secluded scene impress Thoughts of more deep seclusion; and connect The landscape with the quiet of the sky. The day is come when I again repose Here, under this dark sycamore, and view These plots of cottage-ground, these orchard-tufts, Which, at this season, with their unripe fruits, Among the woods and copses lose themselves, Nor, with their green and simple hue, disturb The wild green landscape. Once again I see These hedge-rows, hardly hedge-rows, little lines Of sportive wood run wild; these pastoral farms, Green to the very door; and wreathes of smoke Sent up, in silence, from among the trees, God Bless, Mark 6

Our meeting in May was a most informative talk by Lesley Hendy, who told us about "Wonders of the Human Voice". She gave us ideas as to how we can make our voice more effective. Lesley has trained many school teachers to help them in their classrooms. On Thursday 7th July we will visit Jo Longley’s Garden at Beedinglee, which is situated on the A281 opposite the post box. We meet at 2.30 and there be will time to walk around her lovely garden and then have tea. I look forward to seeing members on that afternoon. Carly Charman 01403 891542. 10
