HAS ANYONE LOST A BLACK CAT IN THE MEADS STREET AREA ?
yesterday evening the cat was taken to St Annes Vets , 6 St Anne’s Road , 01323 640 011 . it was scanned , showing no chip ;
it is a mature male , black with white paws and not neutered , which , i am advised , may mean that it roamed far from it’s home .
v kindly St Annes will keep the cat for a few more days
sadly i found a dead black cat with white paws in my garden at 27 Meads Street last Thursday morning , no injuries , hidden in a corner under thick ferns . it had come here before ,
never begged and altogether was a v welcome visitor .
it doesn’t have a collar and though people have seen it around no one knows who it might belong to .

Meads "Neighbourhood Watch ALERT
Apart from anything you may read in today's Herald about burglaries in Meads of late, there have been two incidents mid-this week in Meads.
The first involved a youngish male door cold caller in Beachy Head Road claiming to be from Betterware.
He said that the lady of the house had ordered items and he was here to deliver and collect the money.
The lady was out and her frail husband was taken aback and uncertain as to what to do. In the event he left the front door open and the male followed him to eventually be given £45.
No goods had been ordered and those left were in no way worth the £45 paid.
The lady reported the incident and has a reference number. The police called to see them both later after the call.
If anyone has any information about the male, please get in touch with 101 or by email to
The other concerns a picnic table and attached seating (pub style table) and a bench stolen from the garden of a property in Darley Road. The item was rather heavy and would have required at least two persons to handle it.
The loss has been reported and a reference number acquired.
Again, If anyone has any information, please get in touch with 101 or by email to
It is that time of the year when anything can happen. If you value your property, make sure it is secure.
One other point concerns the recent approaches to mainly single women by a male sometimes from a Jaguar car with an opener of "haven't I seen you at one of my events". He portrays himself as an antiques dealer and would welcome looking at anything in your home to see if he could buy anything. Sometimes he adds that he holds valuation sessions in a seafront hotel or that he is intending to open a antiques shop in Meads. BE VERY WARY AND ON ONE'S GUARD.
One does not know where befriending him may lead to."

WATCH OUT FOR SCAM PHONE CALLS
"I have recently been informed of calls from 02035658790 received in Meads Ward, claiming to be from the "Telephone Preference management Service".
The foreign caller asks by name for the person he wishes to speak to.
He asks the question ; are you getting nuisance calls.
IT IS A SCAM
He is seeking to sell a device or a service to supposedly block such nuisance calls. This can lead to debit/credit card details being divulged if taken in by his spiel. Don't fall for it.
The real TPS is a free service.
Of interest, one can check such numbers on-line using the "Who calls me?" web site. There were numerous reports to be found there about this number and many others.
Also, anyone receiving such Cold Calls, should report to Trading Standards on : 01323 463446 or email :
FUNDRAISING BALL THIS SPRING
I am hosting a charity fundraising ball this spring in support of the fantastic work done by two local charities; St Wilfrid’s Hospice & Children with Cancer Fund (Polegate).
Both these charities offer fantastic services to local people in their hour of need and I felt that it would be great to support them with some fundraising (and have some fun whilst doing it!)
The Glitter Ball is arranged for Saturday 23rd April at The Winter Gardens. Guests will enjoy a three course meal, live entertainment from several local acts including “Dirty Martini” band, charity auction & raffle, casino style gaming (for fun but with prizes for the biggest winners), close up magician, live instant photography and more!
If you felt able to assist the event, there are a number of ways you could do so.
Firstly by donating a prize for the raffle or an item for the auction. If a financial donation is easier, we would be pleased to buy something on your behalf. We are really looking for unusual and special items for the auction such as autographed items, jewellery etc and have already got a few items that have been donated by celebrities & sports clubs.
Another way you could assist is by attending the event as guests. Tickets are available at £40 per head or a table of ten guests for £350.
This would make a great treat for your staff/volunteers/members whilst supporting a local charity event and we have lots of capacity should you require more than one table.
I would appreciate you forwarding this email to any colleagues/friends/volunteers that may be interested in the event.
Further details & booking information can be found on the website:
I look forward to hearing from you and hope you can join us. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like to discuss things further.
All the best.

WATCH OUT ! Rogue trader warning from Neighbourhood Watch
" Police in Eastbourne are warning residents to be on their guard for rogue traders after a recent incident elsewhere in the town.
Four men called at a house and told the occupants that work needed to be done to the property. One man started to remove some tiles from a roof, while another kicked over a garden wall – they then demanded money from the occupants to fix the ‘problems’ they had identified.
Rogue traders pretend to be ‘qualified’ builders or tradespeople.
They often call unannounced, particularly targeting vulnerable people, and deliberately overcharge for unsatisfactory goods and services.
This can include charging for unnecessary work and damaging property deliberately in order to obtain money.
Police Community Support Officer Stephen Parsons said: “Police advice is to never buy goods and services from people calling unexpectedly at your door.
Use a spy hole, chain or window to check before answering and always ask for proof of identity.
If you have any doubt – keep them out.
If you are suspicious about a caller inform police on 101 or in an emergency dial 999.
You can find out more information about Trading Standards here
