A SINCERE thank you to the kind Eastbourne lady who came to my assistance when I had a fall while walking along Cornfield Road.
She produced tissue from her handbag for me to deal with my bloodied nose and made sure that I was okay to go on my way.
Also my thanks to a young couple and another lady who stopped, intending to assist, although rather ungratefully I indicated that I didn’t want an audience.
A lump in the pavement had caused me to misplace my footing.
It would have suited me better to be walking along the paved way of a cornfield rather than the pavement of Cornfield Road!
