Jan Barron: Funeral
Just to let you know that Jan’s funeral has been arranged for Thursday 7th November, 13.45 at Eastbourne Crematorium, Hide Hollow, Langney, Eastbourne, BN23 8AE. Instead of flowers I would suggest that if you wish to make a donation to Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary, Jan would be much happier with that as the sanctuary meant a lot to her in recent years.
—Peter Barron, husband, 1 November 2019

Jan Barron, who for many years was an active member of the community, died after a short but brave battle with cancer.

As well as being the advertising manager with the Parish Pump, diligently seeing that the money came in to support the publication and seeing that the magazine was distributed to every household here, she was also very involved in the artistic community here both as an organiser and talented painter and illustrator.

Jan who worked for the BBC as a production assistant on a number of well known dramas, such as the Onedin Line, was also an activist in the vegan movement and involved in many campaigns here, such as the fight to save the library.

Bay Life will be publishing a full tribute to her, and her work in the coming month.
