LETTERS Community asset nomination by the book: Purchase the Beach Tavern, but include a library

CAMPAIGN Friends of Library: Media release points the way towards charitable status for local library


To the editor With the imminent decision on the future of Beach Tavern, perhaps Pevensey Bay community have overlooked a possibility. Majority of pubs that have closed especially in small communties, have been taken over by the community and run successfully. As a suggestion and to throw this into the ‘pot’ why not try and […]


Greetings Grenville is the name of my oldest brother My father built Grenville Road in the 1930s and the original properties on the road that are still there from that time. Grenville is the name of my oldest brother. When I was in my teens they started building other homes. We sold #3 Gremville Road […]


To Bay Life Too soon to despair Thanks for keeping the coverage going on the proposed library closure. I know many people are disheartened about the future of the library. But is it books that are stacked against the library opening as suggested in your headline or the lack of political will locally? There is […]


Dear Sir The 12 units beach huts in front of the Sea Road car park @ 4m c/c will pretty well block the view of the sea as well as access. My reaction is these are not appropriate in this location. I doubt Wealden could make this pay due to the superannuated overhead they would […]


Closure of Pevensey Bay Library Just heard that pevensey bay library is on the proposal to close!! the community fought hard to have it reinstated after the flood. It would be a shame / disgrace that money was wasted refurbishing the facility. It has to be saved. Perhaps the Ray Foss library isn’t such a […]


Would you be kind enough to put the attached poster in the Journal. It commemorates ten Pevensey Soldiers who died at Passchendaele. Thanks Carolyn Editor: Most certainly we will put the poster in the next edition of the Journal

Dear Sir/Madam, I am researching my family history and visited Pevensey last week. I visited the church and saw the war memorial inside which commemorates one of my cousins. While I was there I tried to find Bridge Farm where my family once lived, but I presume that the cottage is no longer there. However, […]

IMAGE CREDIT : RSPB To the editor appeal to people NOT to feed the seagulls I hope you won’t mind me using this space to appeal to people NOT to feed the seagulls on the beach. Human food and particularly bread and chips are not their natural diet and are bad for them. They cannot […]


To the editor I have contacted Wealden and the police about the speed of cars and motorbikes along Coast Road but apparently there are no plans to investigate this problem. I have had damage to my car while parked outside my property and then months later it was written off by another vehicle, again whilst […]


Coast Road becoming increasingly dangerous As a resident in Coast road it’s becoming increasingly more dangerous with the number of cars speeding down this narrow road, with Pevensey becoming more popular with holiday makers to the area this feels like a accident waiting to happen, are you aware or your readers if the local council […]


VIEW ALBUM HERE: Chris Haley, 1932 Hi there I wonder if by any chance you have any information on Pevensey Bay in the 1930s, or could you point me in the direction of someone who might have such information. Is there maybe an information centre or museum in the area? My mother and her family […]


Dear Sir We visited Pevensey Bay today (Monday 3 July) and were amazed to see a seal swimming very close to the shore near to where a fisherman was standing with his fishing rod. On further investigation I found reports of similar sightings in 2008, 2012, and another reported in your paper 30 Oct 2016 […]


Dear Mr Montgomery and Dianne Dear, Further to your kind help of last year, I have pleasure in informing you that the novella in question: This Saxon Shore, which features a fictitious young lady graduate and a Professor of history from UCL and a young doctor in Pevensey in 1900, has just come on sale […]
