LETTER: Countryside needs protecting

On warm summer evenings a quiet stroll along country lanes is a quintessential English pleasure. But not if you live in the village of Hellingly.

LETTER: More people should walk

I was so pleased to see the Rev David Ferris article (Eastbourne Herald, August 2) entitled ‘End of the road for internal combustion?’

Your Say

LETTER: Very serious pavement issue

Having read the letters this weekend from P J Abbotts & Gail Ball regarding the condition of pavements in Eastbourne, I have been trying for some considerable time to get the pavements in Crown Street repaired, firstly with the former MP Caroline Ansell and now have written to Stephen Lloyd,received an acknowledgment, but nothing further.

It is that time of year when Airbourne or the Air Show is about to be put on.

I would like to thank Tony Dalby for his letter in last week’s Herald regarding the pier.

LETTER: Why not ban alcohol instead?

I was astonished to hear that the caring council want to ban dogs from the whole of the seafront for five months of the year, apparently to protect the public from anti-social behaviour.

LETTER: Raised voices, raised sticks

Please could ALL those educational tutors and supervisors of ALL foreign students here in Eastbourne this summer explain to their students the reason and benefits of our British ‘queuing system’ while we all wait for buses or trains.

LETTER: Seagulls nest on flat roofs

I had a good laugh at Anne Norton’s letter in today’s Herald [August 4] saying that people who whinge about seagulls shouldn’t live on the coast. Elizabeth Terry’s address (previous Friday’s Herald’s letters) was given as Polegate which is NOT by the sea and I agree with every word she wrote.

LETTER: Town deserves better at park

When is a park not a park? A park should be an open area for leisure and recreation.

Your Say

LETTER: Horrified by the pavements

Subsequent to the letter sent to you regarding a fall I had in Terminus Road, published as ‘The hazards at our feet’ [August 4], the X-ray of my ankle has now been reported on by a radiologist, and it appears I have torn away a small fragment of bone from my lower fibula.

LETTER: Sheikh’s done a wonderful job

On Sunday my wife and I walked on the pier for the first time since it burnt down.

Your Say

LETTER: Residents bear a risk on park

Eastbourne Borough Council has made us all speculators by borrowing £18m to buy a tired looking retail park. You show the Leader posing in its uncrowded car park. It hopes that rents will exceed the interest and expenses, so there will be more money for services.

Your Say

LETTER: MP can’t claim trains credit

Our MP Stephen Lloyd has never been one for humility, but, like most people, I didn’t mind too much as long as he was as honest as any politician can be and got on with the job.

Your Say

LETTER: Airbourne such a town asset

Reading the ‘Out In The Field’ column [July 28] warning of the potential demise of Airbourne due to the lack of fundraising really saddened me. For myself and many others those four days are the highlight of the year. Eastbourne puts on a fantastic show, not just in the air but on the ground too with lots of local businesses making the effort to get involved.

LETTER: The benefit of staff training

After reading last week’s disappointing feedback, my friend and I decided to visit the new Prince’s Park cafe to see for ourselves.
