Michael Parrott reported that there were 86 members of the public at the 5 August tour at Broadwater Cemetery, Worthing. The only vandals are the grass-cutting contractors who have taken out a couple of chips of marble from the kerb stone of Jefferies’ grave and also have damaged memorial trees with strimmers. The Friends of Broadwater Cemetery have lodged a complaint and this is being taken seriously by the council. They should too - the Jefferies’ grave is a Grade II listed building. The memorial garden wild flowers are going over now; there are still geraniums and mallows low down in the grass. The memorial mulberry tree leaves are a bit spotty and most of the fruit was battered down by recent heavy rain. The photographs are supplied by Mr Parrott.

The Richard Jefferies Society and The White Horse Bookshop Writer's Prize has been awarded to British palaeontologist, natural historian, writer and broadcaster Richard Fortey for The Wood for the Trees (William Collins). From a short list of five, the panel judged that the book best met the criterion of reflecting themes or topics broadly consistent with Jefferies’ writing.
