Goring By Sea - a Memory of Worthing.
I was born in the war years in Broadwater, we moved to Goring when I was 2 years old. I grew up in open fields and smallholdings and nurseries. I remember going down to the beach and playing on what is now the Greensward, then it was streams and ponds, tall tussock grass and full of wild life. I used to wade in the ponds to feed the swans all of which where gentle, every kind of wild water life was there. And from Ferring, the goats were walked along the grass because they were the only things that could eat the grasses. I played there a lot, also up at Highdown Hill, again there was all kind of wildlife to see. Life for a child was free; I took a bottle of water and a jam sandwich and was out all day, if only all childhoods could have been the same.
