Bay Life was founded in January 2010. We have been serving Pevensey Bay. Pevensey, Normans Bay and Westham for nine years.

Bay Life is an independent voice.

celebration of communities
We celebrate all that is best about our communities. We debate important local questions and campaign on subjects like the regeneration of economic activity and the preservation of precious community assets.

We have been involved in a number of campaigns including the call to English Heritage to restore the fortunes for the Castle Cottage Tea Room, the campaign against the development of the Beach Tavern site in Pevensey Bay into a three storey luxury flat complex and the Friends of Pevensey Bay Library campaign to save the local library.

We are also supporting the new Pevensey Food Festival to be launched in October 2019.

pevensey bay journal
In May 2016 we also launched the Pevnsey Bay Journal, a local newspaper. The Journal is written by local people. The Journal is available to buy in local newsagents priced forty pence, published ten times a year. The paper is also available as a full digital download on subscription, 10 issues at £6.50, delivered direct to your desktop on the day of publication.

The Independent Community News Network (ICNN) is the UK representative body for the independent community and hyperlocal news sector. ICNN was awarded £223,000 by Google in July 2018 and is now part of the Google Digital Innovation Fund. The Pevensey Bay Journal is proud to be one of the first ten founding members.

We have representation on the editorial board of ICNN.
