Pevensey and Pevensey Bay

GARAGE CLOSURE :The ESSO Garage on the Pevensey Roundabout will now be closed till the end of February as it is changed into a BP Station. The Cash machine has been removed already. So if you are running short of petrol or money then you are out of luck! There is however an excellent Cash Machine locally in the 1066 Stores in Pevensey Bay just down the road.

ADULT SOCIAL CARE CUTS: There will be a discussion and a Question and Answer session with discussion led by County Councillor Trevor Webb and hosted by the Wealden Wards Labour Group. This is taking place on 27th February from 7pm till 9pm in the Baptist Church Hall Pevensey Bay.

ST NICOLAS CHURCH: will this year be celebrating its 800th birthday with many events planned for the coming year. You can take a look at to get further details. First this year is NOTEWORTHY VOICES, an accomplished local chamber choir directed by Ansy Boothroyd, with concert of beautiful sacred and secular music, including works by Laurisden, Poulenc and Victoria, performed ‘a capella’. Tickets can be obtained from Richard Long, telephone 01323416362, or at the door: £6.00; or £12.00 for families and students free. Refreshments will be available during the interval and there is adequate car parking nearby. Proceeds will be in aid of the St Nicolas Church 800th Anniversary Restoration Fund

DUMPED CAR: do dumped vehicles get removed now? The silver Daweoo has sat on the pavement near Pevensey Bridge now for two months and shows no signs of being moved, surely it must be a hazard to Traffic and Pedestrians.

CASTLE COTTAGE :Starts another winter empty and derelict looking. Supposedly the last person who wanted to take over the tenancy dropped out and English Heritage were going to look for another tenant. Well nothing much has happened. Is this just another delaying tactic? The Government and ultimately our taxes fund a building lying empty which could be put to great use in such an important position in the centre of the Village. A Museum, an Art Gallery or lots of other uses have been suggested. Maybe instead of trying to register The Beach Tavern as a potential Community Asset, here’s another building with lots of parking, disabled access just lying unwanted!
