Inside this week’s Bexhill Observer (October 28)


The Bexhill Observer comes out today (Friday October 28) and here is what you can find in this week’s issue.

There is really only one contender for this week’s front page. Following a lengthy trial, four men had been jailed for carrying out a brutal attack on Alfie Peak, which left him brain damaged.

Zack Dangerfield, 25, of Preston Road, Bexhill, John Panice, 26, of Wartlington Drive, Bexhill, Stephen Luck, 26, of Kinscott Close, Bexhill, and Thomas Unwin, 25, of High Street, Ripley, in Derbyshire, were convicted of GBH with intent at Hove Crown Court.

The inquest into the death of Sally Brampton, who was found dead at Galley Hill, revealed there were two missed opportunities to save the life of the journalist, who suffered with manic depression.

Concerned residents expressed their fears about traffic problems in Little Common and the review into whether Bexhill should have its own town council has been branded ‘a farce’.

There are two pages of pictures from last week’s Ninfield Bonfire and a picture spread showing what Bexhill’s Girlguides have been up to.

Wow 24/7, our eight-page entertainment guide, brings you all the latest theatre, dance and music around Hastings and Rother, including a pop-up event taking place in Bexhill to celebrate the Day Of The Dead.

Sports reporter Simon Newstead brings you eight-pages of the latest news and match reports from local teams including Bexhill United, Little Common, Bexhill Town, Hastings & Bexhill Rugby Club and Bexhill Sailing Club.

Whether you are into football, rugby, badminton, bowls, sailing, table tennis, darts, gymnastics, golf, boxing or snooker, you are guaranteed a good read.
