A GROUP which helps safeguard the interests of the town’s elderly population held its annual general meeting.
Eastbourne Seniors Forum held its fourth AGM at St Saviours Church hall last week, with more than 80 members in attendance.
There were reports by chairman Steve Thornett and treasurer Gwynne Pickering, while the forum was relieved to hear that its finances were in good shape.
The forum’s quarterly newsletter and website (www.esf-online.org) were praised and Colin Akers was appointed as membership secretary – with the group now boasting around 750 people on its books.
Eastbourne Borough Council’s tourism development officer Annie Wills was on hand to deliver a presentation on the town’s tourism offerings and spoke at length about the Olympic torch relay, Airbourne, the bandstand, the Wishtower restaurant, the Devonshire Park and Congress Theatre development, and the new signs on the seafront.
