Pleased to be leaving town

I am pleased to be leaving Eastbourne after having had the misfortune of living here for the past 23 years.

This town is lacking in everything from good shops, courtesy and cleanliness to a population that is mostly uncultured and crude.

If my grandparents had not settled here in the ’70s, I would never have visited the town with my parents. Violent streets are not only in Susans Road and Mark Lane, they are all over the town and is anything being done about it? I think not. An ugly place it has become.

What is incredible is that foreign students still come here during the summer and are met with abuse and in some cases violence.

I can think of other resorts further west where there are higher standards and a safer environment for all.
