David Robbins: No better time for this amiable display with our neighbours

David Robbins

The train station at Warnham is in the middle of the rolling Sussex countryside. The village, with its ancient churchyard and half-timbered houses, is a short walk away.

Not many people get out at Warnham. But today, there was a touch of glamour on the platform. A pretty girl in a red summer dress stood there in the sunshine.

She was, we learned, on her way to a wedding. She declined a lift to the village. It was a nice afternoon, and she preferred to walk.
