It is a great opportunity to think big and be adventurous – swimming pools, an ice skating ring...
The nearest venue like this is in Guilford. An excellent set up, but a little far away from Eastbourne.
Now, when the Beacon is nearly finished, with the lovely shops unlike anywhere else, it is time to build The Hub of Leisure , which no other surrounding town has.
Yes to a restaurant, housing for the staff of the leisure centre. Do we need more shops or another hotel ?
I just hope, when our local council make a decision about the future plan, they keep the same facilities, ie a diving pool , training pools, a seating area for the gala pool, and meetings rooms.
The rumour going around is that the facility will be smaller!
