EDITORIAL

A game is ‘an activity that one engages in for amusement or fun’ says the first definition

I call up on Google. Stuff we all need some of, while coping with the fears of these

times. And our interpretation has been pretty broad – read board – but I think the key

must lie in that word ‘engages’. People find fun the things they find engrossing?

So, what’s that for you? For me, it’s most likely working on a poem(!). While Mike

Ellicock paddles the length of the Ouse, Reid Savage listens for the connecting notes

in a guitar piece, and Sam Watts and Dave Sinclair mull over strategy games.

Some of course enjoy Toads: I love Carlotta Luke’s photos of the Toad tables of Lewes.

A (pub) window on a whole, tiny world. While other Lewesians – plenty of you – relish

researching (very) local history: the Lewes History Group is ten years old, and its

meeting walls bulge.

We touch on ping pong, cricket (for girls), football (for women) and trampolining. And

having fun can of course be super(8)-productive. Benjamin Verrall of Toffee Hammer

has just released his first feature film, and says the process of devising, writing, casting,

directing, producing and shooting it (all over Lewes) has been great FUN.

Meanwhile, of course, February brings Pancake Day – we share a recipe from Zu Café

Crêperie – and Valentine’s Day – if a Limetree Kitchen cocktail might appeal? On we

go, heading at least towards the longer, lighter days of spring…
