    We really enjoyed our cosy evening at Brotherhood Hall for the launch of Kevin Newman's new book 'The Little History of Sussex'. Kevin delivered an excellent talk, full of curious facts and funny stories about little-known Sussex landmarks - who knew that Sussex boasts the second smallest church in the UK, or that Worthing Lido is actually a pier? Thanks to all who braved the weather to come along, to @steyningukrainianrefuge for all your help at the hall, and of course to Kevin for an excellent talk and a wonderful little book! Signed copies in store now. @historypress #steyning #sussexhistory
