LETTER: Let’s have a Sussex name

It is good to note that the sea end of Terminus Road is about to be brought back to life with the enthusiasm of both owners and tenants of the shops and I wish them well.

Part of this regeneration will be a name change. To all those who will decide on the name can I please make a plea? A Sussex name will be far more preferable to The Boulevard (French name) or The Piazza (Italian name) – both of which are admirable in themselves.

But the image of these names do not give a vision of Eastbourne but of France and Italy. We have a wonderful history to call on, so a name we can be proud of should fit the bill nicely. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity – don’t miss it and land us with a name that is not comparable with Eastbourne.
