MS charity moves from its town base

A local charity is moving today (March 22) from the premises it has occupied since 2005.

The branch can now be contacted on 07580 469300, or by e-mail at Information is also available on the website Its new postal address is c/o 3VA, 8 Saffrons Road, Eastbourne BN21 1DG.
