You still have time to quit your habit this month in ‘Stoptober’. The specialist Stop Smoking Team are at Langney Shopping Centre every Tuesday from 10am until 1.30pm along with Wednesday’s and Saturday’s from 10am to 12.30 in the afternoon.

Don’t miss out on the open air market that takes place every Saturday and Tuesday from behind Langney Shopping Centre (or from the front depending on which entrance you visit!). Many bargains are to be had, from fresh fruit and veg to bric-a-brac.

This year, Causeway School are collecting tins to give to the Eastbourne Food Bank - tomatoes, meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, sponge pudding, rice etc. If students do not wish to bring in a tin, then a 50 pence donation could be given. The school in Larkspur Drive would like to provide 1000 tins to support people locally who are in need. Please give generously.

Your child’s school photograph has arrived at Causeway and orders can be returned to school, in the clear bag provided. If you wish to place an order, please ensure that your child returns the order form to Student Services by Wednesday 17 October at the latest. If any orders are handed in after the deadline, they will incur a surcharge of £3.50. You will see that Van Cols has had huge price cuts since last year.

A Spook-Tacular Halloween Party is making its way to a street near you! (Not my corny joke I promise!
