Jon Digweed is from Hastings. He is related to UK no.1 clay pigeon shooter George Digweed. He isn't related to Brighton's keeper from the 1980s Perry Digweed.

George Digweed is a little bit more than the uk's no.1 clay shot. He's arguably one of the most decorated sportsmen in the world and probably the best shot to have lived.

wiki lists these but im sure there are a lot more titles not listed

23 world titles (12 Sporting, 10 Fitasc and 1 Compak), 18 European titles (14 Fitasc and 4 Compak), 4 European Compak titles, and 12 world cups

The rest is filled with music, art, and music in England transitioning from the 70s to 80s and 90s.

Buffalo Stance was groundbreaking for a female rapper, has some lyrics that try too hard but was hugely popular, the song has been repeated for years. Like Eminem she was revolutionary in rap or Hip Hop, brought the music mainstream. She decided to pursue other challenges, such as bringing up her children. Good for her, she should do what she wants, but I'd have really enjoyed watching her progress as an artist.

I met her a couple of times on holiday, she's a very nice woman with a good family. My mate even got her autograph on the inside of a pack of blue kingsize because that was all the paper anyone had. LOL

Strange, my BIL is from down that way and of a similar age, sharing the same name, wonder if they're related.
