LETTERS Mint House: Village has a vibrant art scene, but few opportunities to display work

Letters-to-the-Editor111-1-1-1111

I read with interest your recent article about the Mint House in Pevensey and the possibility that, as part of the exciting developments taking place, part of the ground floor may be given over to community use. If that were to eventually happen it would be a significant bonus for the village. If the new […]

I go through Westham at least twice a week This morning the school run mums were really taking the Michael I was boxed in every which way no one gives way.

. PEVENSEY FOOD FESTIVAL I was interested in the article about events being planned around this event next year. On a food theme I wondered if you would consider any poetry?

Jo Johnson, Boris’s brother, quits the Conservative party and will stand down as an mp. He seems to say that he had to put loyalty to the country before both family and party. Is not this exactly the kind of man we need as an mp? 4 votes so far for Boris Johnson in the […]

Reply to Huw Merriman’s statement But how safe is his position? A huge majority of over 20,000. The Brexit Party announcing their candidate is bound to take a % of Conservative votes. They will say that Mr Merriman is a Remainer at heart, voting with the government to keep his job. Mr Merriman has certainly […]

Huw Merriman, MP for Bexhill and Battle re: Will the Brexit Party put up a candidate against Huw Merriman in the ‘safe’ constituency of Bexhill and Battle? How will the people of Pevensey Bay vote if a General Election is called? I found your article interesting, about whether the Brexit Party will challenge Huw Merriman. […]

. Hello Bay Life My name is Arthur Wright and my latest book, published by “Frontline” (Pen & Sword), is called “DECODING THE BAYEUX TAPESTRY…” In it I argue against the accepted speculations and provide evidence for Pevensey as the real focus of the 1066 landing. Hastings, as a place, did not exist and was […]

After hearing the great news the library will be open and run by members of the community I was quite disappointed to see that who I presume to be one of the volunteers using the allocated parking spaces for the library as their own personal parking space. I am a resident of the building the […]

Letter to the editor. A reminder to voters at Westham that there are nine candidates standing for election to Westham Parish Council and voters are free to choose ANY number up to five candidates. Some confusion seems to have arisen after the distribution of a leaflet on Wednesday from four candidates campaigning together. All candidates […]

A tidal wave of apathy and indifference seems to have swept Stone Cross where the Parish Council Elections in May are concerned. The two wards of Stone Cross and Dittons, who between them have 8 seats allocated on the Parish Council, have only managed to attract 3 candidates. Does this indicate a lack of interest, […]

re: LETTERS: Pevensey Church School, either 1945 or 1946, I wondered if any of your readers would have been present? Could Pamela Tompsett be referring to this? Visit to London Pantomime Children’s Outing from Pevensey (02 January 1947): “Ninety children from Pevensey aged seven to 15, went by motor coach to London on Thursday to […]

LETTERS: Tony Larlham Similar event @ Asda about 10 days ago. Sussex Police senior management papering over the cracks and trying to present ‘Community Policing’. Would prefer more regular presence on the streets, even 1 officer per week in the Village area on Foot Patrol would be an improvement. The few resources they have in […]
