LETTER: Constant control at Beachy Head

I know this is a miserable message but isn’t it time we in Eastbourne did more about Beachy Head and the suicides and ‘accidental’ incidents? Just checked my news feed and another two this weekend.

LETTER: Great value for money

I would like to thank all those concerned for providing a wonderful day’s cricket at The Saffrons on Sunday. Sussex and Gloucestershire entertained for more than six hours for £17.

LETTER: Fantastic day at Saffrons

I wanted to write to pass on my congratulations to Eastbourne Cricket Club and all at The Saffrons for a fantastic day on Sunday hosting Sussex CCC.

LETTER: Pier’s a place worth visiting

It was refreshing to see two letters [Herald May 5] praising Sheik Abid Gulzar and his sterling (or should that be 24 carat?) efforts to slowly and surely transform the pier into a clean and smart structure worth visiting. Prior to the fire it was dowdy, generally because of a lack of maintenance by the previous owners.

LETTER: Stop senseless destruction

Summer approaches. Parks and gardens strive to look their best. Sadly, however, a few people seem to believe summer is a great time for destruction and making a lot of mess!

LETTER: Did Long Man go tooled-up?

In the 1940s my memory of the Long Man of Wilmington is that the figure featured a scythe and rake at the top of his poles and I seem to remember that both feet pointed outwards. The figure was cut in the chalk – no breeze blocks or whitewash.

LETTER: Minority taint the majority

I would like to query last week’s letter on the subject of seafront cyclists using the seaward side pavement from Channel View Road as a solution to allow seafront cycling by asking where do they ride once they reach the promenade?

Your Say

LETTER: Our pavements are atrocious

Returning to the subject of dangerous pavements, as highlighted by correspondents a few weeks ago, some years ago I wrote to East Sussex County Council complaining about the state of the ones where I live, which are atrocious. At the time there seemed to be endless ongoing work being done to the roads and pavements in Polegate and I wanted to know why we couldn’t expect the same attention. I was fobbed off with various excuses.

LETTER: Loss of gallery inconceivable

I was horrified to hear of the proposed savage cut to the council funding for our prestigious Towner Gallery.

Your Say

LETTER: Abiding by the local wishes

At a time when there is much political debate regarding our relationship with Europe (or lack of), it is refreshing to hear a candidate genuinely speak up for the people of Eastbourne and Willingdon on this important issue.

LETTER: Involved in the community

Over the Easter weekend, we hosted a special fete here at Sovereign Lodge Care Centre and were delighted to welcome many friends, relatives, neighbours and the Mayor of Eastbourne, Pat Hearn. By hosting events such as these, it is our aim to make the home and our residents as involved in the community as possible. It also provides an opportunity for our local neighbourhood to understand more about the work we do here at Sovereign Lodge to support our elderly residents, many of whom live with dementia.

LETTER: Supporting our pharmacists

A company is circulating many older local patients with the claim that ‘the new NHS Electronic Prescription Service’ gives advantages not available to those who order repeat prescriptions through our local pharmacies.

LETTER: Crack down on street drinking

For quite some time now while strolling around the town centre, I’ve noticed quite a few of the same individuals hanging around holding quite visibly strong alcoholic drinks. There are clear signs stating ‘alcohol free zone with fine’.

LETTER: Too good for tribute bands

I agree with Annemarie Field regarding the number of tribute bands appearing in the town [Out In The Field, April 28]. Why do all the top, first class orchestras like Jools Holland and John Wilson go to Bournemouth and Tunbridge Wells but miss Eastbourne?

LETTER: Dangerous and disgusting

A message to all visitors to Eastbourne this summer – welcome to the Suntrap of the South. We are blessed with plenty of sunshine and can also boast that we probably have more potholes than any other town in the country.

LETTER: Slogans to woo the electorate

We have been told that Number 10 has brought in American help with the election campaign, maybe the same ones that helped President Trump to stardom.

Your Say 1

LETTER: Brexit and the UK’s prosperity

I doubt that many of those who voted to leave the European Union imagined that the process would be as complex and difficult as it is proving to be. Certainly, I never heard the campaigners who urged us to ‘take back control’ hint at the potential problems over Gibraltar, Northern Ireland and Scotland which are now becoming apparent.

LETTER: Mind-boggling 1907 activities

The letter [Herald May 5] regretting the small audience at the Devonshire Park Theatre recently is a reminder that ever since its opening in 1884, similar concerns have been filed.

Your Say

LETTER: There’s crisis in school funding

I’m seriously concerned about school funding. My sons attend two schools in Old Town which stand to lose three and seven teachers respectively, and I’ve received letters from both headteachers asking for our support.

LETTER: We can share – and take care

I refer to the letter by David Stopp regarding the headline ‘Seafront cycle lane to replace parking’ [Herald, April 28]. I read this headline with the same incredulity.
