Marketing of local events very poor

Eastbourne has an over-50s show at the Winter Garden on November 12 and 13, but when trying to find it on the council’s website I found nothing.

As this is a major event geared towards quite a sizeable area of the population, and also sponsored partly by your newspaper, I find this apathy disappointing, but not surprising.

Have a proper look at the official council website and you will find a lot that is out of date – some even encouraging people to attend events held in 2010.

This is allegedly a prestige marketplace for visitors to discover what our town has to offer. Pretty poor, in my opinion.
