Things to do in West Sussex with children – Tilgate Lake

During lockdown, it is so hard to come up with things to do in West Sussex with your children, that

a; aren’t full of other people and

b; don’t cost a fortune.

Tilgate Park and Lake, in Crawley, is fantastic.  It is the perfect place to go to, especially for the evening, after a hot day in the sun.  It was away from the crowds and a wonderful place for the children to relax and enjoy.

Tilgate Park also has so much to offer .  It has a a couple of lakes, large green to play games or picnic, wooded areas, play parks, trim trails, golf course, cycle trails and  nature centre.  It also has a cafe, restaurant and a Go Ape high ropes course. In the summer it has some fantastic inflatable games plus boating on the lake and in the winter Father Christmas comes to visit.  There is so much to see and do, it really is a must if you haven’t been before.

About Tilgate Park.

 

The address for Tilgate Park is: Tilgate Drive, Crawley, West Sussex RH10 5PQ

There is one free car park near K2 and the rest are paying but procedes from the car parks do go back into the park!

Dogs are allowed in the park but not in the walled garden or nature reserve.

 

Our evening

This jetty was perfect for chilling out on but as we arrived a couple of teenage girls, also thought the same.

Unfortunately, for one, she managed to drop her phone through the slats of the jetty, into the water below.  As we had fishing nets, we offered to help, also because she was panicking her mum would be really mad at her.  We managed to locate the phone and helped to guide her underneath the jetty to pick it out.

I have to say, if this was my daughter, even if the phone had broken, I would’ve been so proud of her!  She didn’t hesitate to get down to her swimmer, to enter the water to retrieve the phone.  She even went under the jetty where there were all sorts of things lurking.

Having left, to give mum the bad news, we then had the jetty to ourselves. To enjoy the evening.  From across the lake we could even hear music, from someones stereo, and the air was so warm, as the sun started to set.  It was so peaceful!

Whether you want to walk, cycle or take your scooters Tilgate Park is great for burning of energy with your children.  It is also perfect for picnics and playing games on the large green.

Meeting the lovely Debbie Beling from Women’s Transformation

Debbie runs her own Women’s Wellness Business, focusing on those approaching or going through the menopause.  Providing guidance, health and food tips plus fitness sessions, she really is a wonderful help to her clients. Helping them through what can be a tough time.

Debbie’s head shot and branding session was arranged during lockdown, so it was important to adhere to social distancing.  We weren’t allowed to meet indoors, so I met Debbie at her house.  She had a fantastic area outside, where we could easily set up for the session.

It was easy to have a range of backdrops and Debbie was able to pop indoors to change her outfits, truly maximising the time.

 

Your own branding or headshot session

£75 for 3 digital images.  Retouched up to 3 times.  Extra digital images can be purchased at £50 per image

Together we will discuss the options for your session, whether you would prefer formal or casual images. Head shots or personal branding, to show your business and what you would like included.

Not many of us enjoy being in front of the camera, so, I will work with you to ensure you feel relaxed and get the images that you love.  I am happy to continue until you are happy so the session could last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on your goal.

After the session I will then send you the digital images on a private gallery, where you can choose your favourites.  We can then discuss any further “touch up” work that you would like.

If you would like to discuss your options for a session please get in touch using the contact form below. Or feel free to call me on 07904 980885.
