Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

MAGNA CARTA MARKET: Last Sunday the Town Trust organised a Market on the Market Square in Pevensey. There were a variety of stalls selling, cakes, sweets, beef burgers right through to Incredible Edible, St Nicolas Church and lots more. It would be nice to see the square used for markets more regularly. Meanwhile at the Courthouse the day before there was an activity day including for children the chance to meet Julian Warrender the Lewes Author who has written the children’s book Magnus Carter. Don’t forget it’s still well worth visiting the Court House to look at some of the exhibits from Pevensey’s Past and of course there is still a need for Volunteers to help run the Museum.

LIBRARY: Its still closed after flooding in January and East Sussex County Council say they are in legal discussions with the buildings owners to determine who is responsible for the damage and repairs. They point out there are Libraries in Eastbourne, Langney and Hampden Park and even a book exchange available at the Royal Oak and Castle. However for Library users these alternatives do not seem to be a good replacement for a Library in Pevensey Bay so hopefully it will be reopened and not just become another victim of austerity measures.
