It Could All Have Been So Different

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.
