What a fabulous weekend it was, so good to see so many visitors enjoying the beach and prom and making it a bumper Bank Holiday weekend for local businesses.

I have to smile at the resistance by many people to pay to park now on the seafront: £1.40 for 4 hours, £1.70 for 5 hours and £2.00 for 10 hours, and yet the side roads are packed with cars! Yes, none of us liked it when charges were introduced as we’d enjoyed free parking for so long - but all good things must come to an end - and £2.00 is less than a cup of coffee after all.

I’m sure it costs far more in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings and here we have direct access to the beach and promenade.
