With many holidays abroad off the agenda for the time being, we thought we’d share how the BrightWord team will be enjoying summer on the South Coast this year…judging by this, we all clearly share a love for water!
Rachel: “I love spending time outdoors with my family and luckily we are spoilt for choice here. You can usually find us somewhere near water – either paddle boarding on Chichester Canal or down at Dark Lane beach in Aldwick where I’ve been swimming each week over the past year. We also enjoy packing a picnic, a flask of tea and going for long walks with our Springer Spaniel, Poppy. Halnaker Windmill is one of our favourites.”
Abby: “I love heading to The New Forest with my family. It’s under an hour drive from Chichester so you can go for just the day and enjoy a walk, pub lunch and some crabbing. Or we often spend a few days away camping with friends. Cycling, splashing in streams and horse riding are just some of the activities we get up to.”
Jennie: “We are so lucky to have so many beautiful places on our doorstep, rain or shine. I love a coastal walk, especially around my local area of Bosham and even better if it is via a great coffee shop.”
Grace: “I spend most evenings just along from Bournemouth Pier at west cliff and tend to stroll along the promenade to the quieter places. Nothing beats a good fish and chips and ice cream on the seafront! I have seen some of the best sunsets over at sandbanks too, idyllic.”
