s it about time that Eastbourne Borough Council admit the cost of repairs to the bandstand and seafront shelters that need to be made to bring them back to a safe condition?

Anyone walking along the seafront can see the extensive propping that has been installed to stop the shelters and bandstand falling down.

Their terrible state of repair has been kicked around the grass for many years now and we are at risk of having the bandstand going the same way the Wish Tower cafe went, demolition!

The Liberal Democrats were rightly critical of the then ruling Conservative Council when the Wish Tower cafe was closed due to neglect.

Now the Liberal Democrat have put a vital piece of the town’s tourism infrastructure at great risk.

And please Liberal Democrats do not say it is due to the Covid-19 pandemic restricting financial resource, this fiasco has been known for years now.
