I was born and brought up in Old Town. It is a town that I will always love.
I left Eastbourne with my parents and brother in the 1950s, and now reside in Derbyshire.
My husband and I come back every year for two weeks’ holiday, and we were so sad to see the state of the pier, looking so tired and shabby, such as loose boards, rotting wood, and lacking a good coat of paint.
I think as the pier is a main attraction maybe the Council should take another look at it. Look forward to my visit next year.
