Thanks for picking up the March issue of Sussex Living Magazine, we do hope you enjoy reading it.

It’s a lovely big issue this month, full of great articles and interesting reads. Our ever-popular education feature covers the world of internships, with Sasha Kanal meeting one intern who has been working with the same company for five years and is now settled into his own role there.

We also get an inside look into graphic design, as our own designers share their Education and career stories with us. Turn to page 24 to enjoy the whole feature.

We are very blessed to have so many fascinating local personalities living in beautiful Mid Sussex, including the eminent actress Judy Parfitt. Meeting with Lisa de Silva at her lovely home, Judy spoke candidly about her acting career and her role as ambassador for Dementia UK, a charity close to her heart. Do turn to page 57 to read the whole article. Thank you Judy for such an interesting interview.

Many thanks as well to Mike Lawn who so kindly let us use some of his stunning photographs of Judy and her toy poodle, Freddie in the article and for our front cover too. We are very grateful to Mike, whose work can be seen at www.mikelawn.com

Now for some housekeeping news: this will be my last issue for a little while, as I am off on maternity leave! Amidst feeds and burps, I will try to keep up with Sussex Living life, and will certainly miss everyone here. I am handing over to the lovely and very capable Cheryl Watkins, and of course all the usual brilliant team here at Sussex Living. Adios!
