FOR THOSE who are unaware, we have a brilliant service available here in our district.

The Langney Area Panel is based at the Resource Centre in Etchingham Road.

The Panel has been in operation since November 2006 and is committed to helping all residents of Eastbourne Homes Limited in need of advice and guidance.

Residents concerns are dealt with in complete confidence and problems that they’re able to help with are fly-tipping, anti-social behaviour and health and safety amongst others. Their opening hours are 10am to 12am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. A committee officer will be available at these times to help with any queries or problems residents may have.  They work in close conjunction with Eastbourne Homes, so they can quickly put you in touch with the relevant housing officer for your needs. Also, on the above dates, free computer training sessions are running and you are more than welcome to come and join in! They are limited in the number of laptops available, so if you have one of your own please bring it along.

The Resource Centre is also open on other days and times for the Street Learning courses.

For details of these, please see the Street Learning leaflets or go along to the centre to see them.

Committee meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month at 7pm and all are welcome to attend.

The address of the Langney Panel is Resource Centre, 10 Wiltshire Court, Etchingham Road, Langney, BN23 7DX. They can be found behind the Martello Pub and opposite the shops in the old Langney village. You can also email them on langneyap@hotmail.co.uk.

WELL done to the Year 7 boys football team from Bishop Bell School.

They recently won their match comfortably against Lewes Priory, 5-1. Man of the match was awarded to Elliot Powell-Cullingord for a solid overall performance from start to finish.

The girls Year 7 and 8 football team also deserve a mention. The players recently travelled to Helenswood School in Hastings to compete in a tournament.

Four teams took part and the girls played extremely well, winning three out of seven games. Keep it up!

During Academic Day 3 at Bishop Bell, the Year 10 pupils had the chance to attend a careers fair which was held in the school gym.

Prospective employers were in full force ready to pass their knowledge on to the young people.

Representatives from the Army, RAF, Navy and the Marines took part, along with staff and pupils from Sussex Downs College, Eastbourne College and their very own, Bishop Bell post-16.

The students took the opportunity to ask many questions on the choices that will be facing them upon leaving school in a short time. Thank you to Mrs O’Connor for organising that event and the staff who helped out.

Parents of Bishop Bell students beware, your Year 8 Parents Evening is on 24th January and the Year 11 one takes place on February 28. The Year 10 and 11 Spanish trip is also just around the corner due to take place on February 7, along with Feb 19-22 set aside for a history trip to Berlin. Alright for some isn’t it?!

OUR PRIORY Priory Lane boys will be travelling to Kettering Town this Saturday in the Blue Square Premier Division. Eastbourne Borough’s season has not been an easy one thus far with some tough matches.

Also this week, Tamworth will enjoy a trip down to the Sunshine Coast (not what we would be associated with recently!) on Tuesday January 25.
