Two neighbours are celebrating their close friendship after living next door to each other for more than 30 years – despite moving twice.

Amy McCaw, 90, and Sheila Smith, 87, have been friends since meeting at the Eastbourne Homes-managed Langney Court, which has since been demolished.

They were neighbours for 12 years there, then moved to Roxburgh Court where they spent a further 15 years living alongside each other. Their last move was three years ago when they went into the newly refurbished Cumbria Court in Milfoil Drive. Sadly, the pair will now be separated as Amy is relocating to Worcester near her son. A special coffee morning was held to say goodbye to Amy and the pair were both presented with a framed photo of them together.
