Sussex hosts own Highland Games

Sussex’s answer to the Highland Games is to take place next weekend with the High Weald Games in Cowfold.

The fun day at Long House, Long House Lane, Cowfold, will take place from 10am and finish at 5pm on Saturday July 21.

The event will provide the sound of bagpipes from The Pinstripe Highlanders.

Activities will include a pentathlon and decathlon competition, a dog show, pony rides, terrier racing, ferrets, side shows and a tug of war.

Attendees will be well catered for with a hog spit roast, burger van, bar and a fizz tent.

There is free parking and entry to the event which is all in aid of three charities: Sussex Community Foundation, St Catherine’s Hospice and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The Tregear family have been given big thanks for organising the event.

St Catherine’s helps people to live as independently as possible with medical conditions that, although they are incurable, can be treated and quality of life improved.

Care is provided free of charge at home, outpatients, day therapy and overnight in the Hospice.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation claims to be the number one diabetes charity, improving lives until we find the cure. It funds research to cure, treat and prevent type one diabetes.
