The coat of arms of East Sussex

East Sussex is a county in South East England. It is bordered by the counties of Kent, Surrey and West Sussex and, to the south, by the English Channel.

The ancient kingdom of Sussex had separate county administrations since the 12th century, with the county town of the eastern division being Lewes [1]. This situation was formalised by Parliament in 1865, and the two parts were given distinct elected county councils in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888.

In East Sussex there were three self-administered county boroughs: Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. In 1974 the East Sussex was made a ceremonial county also, and the three county boroughs became districts within the county. At the same time the western boundary was altered, so that the Mid Sussex region (including Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath) was transferred to the administrative county of West Sussex.

In 1997, Brighton & Hove became a self-administered unitary authority and was eventually granted city status in 2000.

Llamas

The Ashdown Forest Llama Park is a large park situated in the Ashdown Forest, East Sussex, at Wych Cross, Forest Row. It is home to more than 100 llamas and alpacas. The aim of the park is to breed and sell llamas and alpacas, and to increase people's knowledge of the animals.

It also gives visitors the opportunity to learn about domestication of species in the lama genus in the Andes hundreds of years ago.

Selected biography

Fatboy Slim in 2004.jpg

Fatboy Slim (born Quentin Leo Cook on July 13, 1963, also known as Norman Cook) is a British big beat musician. He stopped using 'Quentin' and began calling himself 'Norman' while a schoolboy, long before he adopted any other pseudonym.

Cook grew up in Reigate, Surrey, England, and was educated at Reigate Grammar School. He started a punk fanzine as a teenager and at sixth-form college met Paul Heaton. At 18, Cook went to the Brighton Polytechnic to study a BA in English, Politics and Sociology. Although he had begun DJing some years before, it was at this time that he began to develop his skills on the thriving Brighton club scene. In 1985 he was diverted by a call from his old friend Paul Heaton. Heaton had moved to Hull and had formed a guitar band called The Housemartins.
