Six at 6pm with… Katie (hello, it’s me!) from Sussex Born & Fed

So, this evening, I thought it would be fun to do my own Six at 6pm. Partly because I haven’t managed to interview anyone for this week; partly because I reckon you shouldn’t ask any questions that you wouldn’t answer yourself. So for one week only, here I am, the star of my own show:…

DOUBLE REVIEW: Slake & Lindfield Coffee Works

Last week, when I asked for coffee shop recommendations in a local Facebook Group in Haywards Heath, two places came up time and time again: Slake and Lindfield Coffee Works in Lindfield. Slake was also one of The (Parent) Hood’s recommendations in their Six at 6pm. I haven’t been to Lindfield for a long time,…

I ran a Facebook poll last week asking whether I should write up a guide to buggy friendly cafes or a guide about cafes with something for everyone. The margin was pretty slim and Something for Everyone narrowly won. These cafes are the places you can retreat to as a parent safe in the knowledge…
