Sussex Wildlife Trust hope the phrase ‘My Wild Life’ will be on everyone’s lips this year as it joins with the 46 other wildlife trusts in the UK to spread the word that nature matters.

The campaign will promote and engage people with their local wildlife and wild places encouraging them to submit their own stories showing the value of nature to them as individuals.

Seaford Head provides a view of one of the most iconic landscapes in the UK – The Seven Sisters chalk cliffs overlooking the English Channel.

Sussex Wildlife Trust teamed up with Brighton Theatre Group which is currently rehearsing for the musical ‘Sister Act’ in April to produce this show-stopping image to launch its Sussex campaign to raise awareness of the fabulous views and wonderful walks freely available for everyone to share and enjoy.

Amanda Solomon of the Sussex Wildlife Trust said, “Colette Ridehalgh, who plays nun Sister Mary McCrystal, lives in Headland Avenue, Seaford, and regularly walks on Seaford Head with her family. Her ‘sisters’ were stunned by the fabulous views and they attracted more than a few stares while having their picture taken during a break from rehearsals.”

‘Sister Act’, directed by Michael Burnie, tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and, fearing for her safety, the cops hide her in a cathedral church disguised as a nun.

It will be performed at All Saints Church, The Drive, Hove, from Tuesday, April 14 until Saturday, April 18, at 7.45 pm. For ticket details call 01273 709709 or visit
