14 Nov - Beach Work Update - The storm two weeks ago arrived just after completion of the last recycle and – fortunately – a couple of days after the 8.0mCD tides had receded.
Nevertheless, the beach was drawn down in many places and now requires another phase of recycling. Last time the focus was in the east, so, initially at least, works starting on Monday 18th will look to replenish Sovereign Harbour. Shingle will be taken from the area between Pevensey outfall and ‘The Kiosk’, with just material in the ridge part way up the beach being used.
It is likely that this will continue all next week. The following week, machines are expected to move east to Beachlands, Normans Bay and Herbrand Walk so that all areas are reinforced as the next series of spring tides arrive that week Ian Thomas Project Manager Pevensey Coastal Defence Ltd

27 Sept - Volunteering opportunities at St Wilfrid’s Hospice - Community Support Volunteers visit and befriend patients in their own homes across our catchment area from Eastbourne to Uckfield, very much like a good neighbour would. They offer our patients a chance to talk, give respite and reassurance to families, laugh, reminisce and even play the odd game of scrabble! It really does make a difference to people. Living Well Volunteers visit patients in their own homes, supporting them to work towards their rehabilitation goals. This rewarding role, will require visiting a patient 4-6 times to support them to participate in activities that are meaningful to them, such as walking outdoors, gardening, managing their breathlessness or cooking a meal. All activities are directed by patients and planned by Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. Training and ongoing support is provided for both these roles. Click the following links to learns more about the two roles and how to apply: https://www.stwhospice.org/community-support-volunteer-csvhttps://www.stwhospice.org/living-well-volunteer
