DOWN YOUR WAY (July 17th): Sovereign Harbour

Have your say

SOVEREIGN Harbour played a part in Eastbourne Extreme over the weekend of July 14/15 by hosting the competitors in the Powerboat P1’s national championships, SuperStock UK and P1 AquaX. Visitors to the Waterfront were able to get a close up view of the boats and their crews before and after the races, which were held off the Eastbourne seafront.

MEMBERS of the Eastbourne East Neighbourhood Policing Team will be holding a street meeting outside Bright Ideas on the Sovereign Harbour Waterfront, on Thursday July 19, starting 3pm.

The informal meeting, which will also be supported by members and officers of the borough council and neighbourhood watch, is an opportunity for you to raise any concerns that you may have directly to the people who can do something to help you, or just to meet them, and introduce yourself.

If you have issues that you would like to discuss, but can’t get to the meeting, you can contact PC Ed Faulkner on 07787 685813 or PCSO Martin Hylands on 07909 873787.
