Robin Hill in Fairfield Road, first opened by Karen Edgerton in 1989, will shut on Friday July 20.

A planning application has been submitted to Eastbourne council to return the nursery building to its original residential use.

The reasons behind the closure – according to a statement to the council – are a reduction in child numbers, reduced income and rising costs, the owners Karen and John Edgerton retiring and the running of the nursery is no longer financially viable.
