Lawrence Keeley has completed almost ten years worth of work on his life story which has just been published. Copies are available from Herstmonceux Village Information Centre for £14 each.
What happens when a farmer loses the tenancy of his farm? This particular farmer ate pig swill, went to jail for burning waste, slept on the streets (to raise funds for a homeless shelter), and saw life from a whole new perspective. The unexpected turns in this farmers’ life have fostered in him a deep-seated compassion for the underdog, causing him to campaign on issues of housing, farming and care.
This true story is a moving first-hand account of an individual trying to make his mark on the world, against the background of a rapidly vanishing way of life, and is not to be missed.
