More than 50 key members of the Pevensey community attended the Pevensey Villages Partnership.

The conference was called Our Future – Made Together and it took place earlier this month in a bid to shape the future of Pevensey and Pevensey Bay.

Wealden District Councillor and event organiser Lin Clark said, “We’ve had some really thought provoking presenters and some excellent discussions with many innovative suggestions being brought to the table.

“Next year promises to be a huge year for the area – it marks 950 years since the Normans landed on our beaches and we’ve got some great ideas coming out from this event so watch this space.”

Wealden District Council chairman Barby Dashwood-Morris introduced the event which included a number of presentations from Jo Evans from Rotherfield St Martin, on working together to reduce isolation and loneliness in a rural community, Wealden principal policy advisor officer Dr Jeremy Leach on behavioural change, Mina O’Brien of Ditzy Media on social media and Daniel Brookbank of Pevensey Senior Support Group on moving into the future together.

Pevensey Villages Partnership was founded in March 2014 from the Wealden District Council ‘Streets Ahead’ initiative to look at how the council can help local communities to regenerate economic and social activity in their villages and towns.

The Pevensey Villages Partnership recently secured £10,000 of funding to help its regeneration plans from the Coastal Community Teams.
