WEALDEN FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL: is once again running at Pevensey Castle on 16th and 17th of July In addition to local foods and drink there will be cooking demonstrations, living history workshops, science workshops, falconry displays, talks at St Nicolas Church. Here will also be nine live bands appearing over the weekend. There will be an entry charge for the event this year. If you are thinking of coming then remember there will be a free Park and Ride from Stone Cross Garden Centre – much easier than trying to find a parking space in Pevensey!

VILLAGE SIGN: Its made and it ready and evidently looks good. Watch this space because it will son be appearing in its spot by the Castle. Its taken several years but I am sure it will be well worth the wait.

CHARITY QUIZ: at Priory Court Hotel on Wednesday July 27th in aid of St Nicolas 800. Please book a table for the new Charity Quiz which hopefully will run every month and each month raise money for a local nominated charity. Entry is £2 per person, with a maximum team number of six. Bookings on 01323 764528 or 01323 763150

PEVENSEY BAY LIBRARY: ESCC have evidently confirmed things are looking good for the library reopening on August 30th

PCSOs: According to part of the Press Release from Sussex Police ‘PCSOs equipped with enhanced powers and skills, are starting their new role on Monday 4th July 2016.With new skills and powers to deal with a wide range of local problems, they can act to resolve issues such as alcohol-fuelled anti-social behaviour from their very first day in the new role. Assistant Chief Constable Laurence Taylor said “ The PCSO role has evolved since it was introduced 13 years ago with the specific aim to be visible in the community; and they will continue to conduct patrols. However these patrols will be targeted to areas where they know they can make a difference. They will be helping prevent crimes such as burglary and anti-social behaviour and complete tasks in ways that are proven to reduce crime and keep people safe”

They will be an integral part of larger teams solving local problems, carrying out basic investigations, working alongside partners and directly with witnesses and victims to respond to community issues. Making use of mobile technology, PCSOs will access information whilst out in the community .The flexible nature of their new role means they can work when and where they are needed, logging on remotely, as well as working from police and shared premises.’

This would seem to mean we will only see a PCSO in the area if we are subject to a ‘crime spree’ and the old idea of community policing seems to have gone. With problems in the Bay such as Parking being a real issue who is going to sort out things like this.
