On 19th May, Bruce Middleton, Central West Area Manager for the South Downs National Park Authority gave an excellent presentation on the new Park to the Parish Council's Annual Parish Meeting in the Village Hall, Cocking. The talk provided the audience of councillors and villagers with a comprehensive guide to the purpose, scope and working of the National Park as well as some of the challenges facing it in its early days.
We hope that Bruce and his colleagues will be able to provide future updates, but in the meantime this presentation will be of interest to those who didn't attend the Parish Meeting and as a reminder of the details for those who did.
