FRIENDS OF PEVENSEY BAY LIBRARY: think it might be possible to raise funds to purchase the now closed and empty Beach Tavern through a Community Shares Scheme according to Chairman Margaret Martin. The email goes on to say the space could be used as a meeting space for various community groups and events, computers for public access, a charity shop for local crafts, gifts and arts. Moves are currently underway to see if Wealden will register the building as an ‘Asset of Community Value’ This would allow the community six months to raise the money for the purchase of the building. What about the existing Village Hall, Ethel Wood Hall and other buildings already used for Community events? Could the local Community raise the £350k asking price and then pay for alterations and would a six month hold on development put off a sympathetic developer but not bother a large supermarket chain who could happily sit on their investment for six months before opening a shop. There will whatever the outcome be a lot more discussion.
