Bexhill Town Forum is asking for nominations to form a new committee after two years of the current crop.

The forum provides a public meeting for residents to learn more about developments in the town as well as to discuss topical issues.

An eight-person committee is elected every two years with a chairman, vice-chairman, secretary and treasurer.

Current chairman Alan Peirce encouraged people to come forward as the forum has he believes it has gone from strength to strength.

“Over the last two years the public forum events have moved to a professional presentation style where the subjects requested by the public have been thoroughly researched and presented by well informed presenters. Lively discussions have always followed.

“The committee have been delighted with the positive feedback that has been received and the new committee will have a sound foundation from which to build the next stage in the forum’s life.”

Committee members’ job is to liaise with the councils, voluntary groups and businesses in Bexhill as well as keeping an eye on what is going on and what is planned to inform the topics discussed.

Skills needed for the role include communication, leadership, financial management, creativity and being computer-savvy.

The deadline for nominations is midnight on June 30, to apply or to find out more, email, or visit
