100 Lives in Sussex: Your stories told by BBC Sussex

What's happened so far?

Over the past couple months the BBC has been looking for people from Sussex to be part of 100 Lives - a special feature which will follow the most interesting stories from people right across the county.

We have now found our 100 people and have been listening to their stories on mid morning and afternoon shows of BBC Radio Sussex.

Some of these life stories will be featured on the website throughout the coming months.

What kind of story?

It might be a person planning a big family wedding, or starting a new business.

The person might be heading out on the trip of a lifetime, or bravely facing illness.

Perhaps the person is running a community group that needs to fight to survive, or unleashing your creative soul.

Who's taking part?

Margaret, 81, who is writing her memoirs. She came to England as a child - a refugee from Nazi Germany.

Jim, who is returning to the sea with a brand new boat - hoping to catch Sussex sardines. He dreams of fish in the bath!

Sophia, who is taking over her mum's estate agency and getting married.

Sarah, who is opening the farm shop that she has planned for the last five years.

Tony, who is on a battle to reduce his weight. He's got a target of eight stone - and he knows his friends will help him.

What's happening next?

Keep an eye on our website and listen to BBC Sussex during the mid morning and afternoon shows for more 100 Lives stories.
