Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

STATE OF THE ROADS thinking the road gutter was getting overgrown and full of rubbish we cleared it wondering why the road sweepers never did their job. Then you start to look and see all round the villages there are stretches of gutter/pavement with grass and weeds growing uncleared (and venture into Rattle Road Westham and it’s terrible). Is this another stealthy cutback. Seems the road markings will not be apparently repainted till they are two thirds missing or dangerous and now apparently the gutters are not being cleaned properly either. It all makes Pevensey and Pevensey Bay look just that bit scruffier

LAND FOR SALE If you are waiting at Pevensey Bay Halt you may have noticed a piece of overgrown land for sale behind the Platform. Apparently it’s 826 sq meters of brambles and weeds. Interestingly the website claims a house called Station Cottage was there till 1977. Doing a quick Google search brings up a photo showing there was a house there and a signal box the other side of the road! So what happened to Station Cottage and why was it never rebuilt? And if you are still interested the piece of ‘jungle’ is priced at 60 - 80k

WALK FOR HEALTH with the good weather why not go down to Pevensey Bay Library on a Monday at 9.45 and join in a walk around the village. These popular walks continue through the summer

INKKSPOT Meet the first Friday of every month at Pevensey Bay Baptist Church at 18.30. There are guest speakers, stories , poems, competitions and more. Take a look at their website to see more information and read some of the entries to previous competitons and if you are still reluctant they claim you do not even have to write a single word to enjoy. Great evening out in the Bay, so what excuse have you got?
