LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH LETTER FROM SUSSEX POLICE

Dear All,
I have been asked by Roy Peacock (local Neighbourhood Watch and Panel) to circulate the attached letter from Sussex Police. It occurs to me that it might be a good idea for traders to collate a log of any incidents so would ask you to advise Roy and myself should anything untoward happen in the future.

It seems efforts to further delay the closure of NatWest have been in vain and the doors will be permanently shut as from today. Thanks for your help with the petition etc but it seems we have lost this battle.

Hope you all had a busy summer and wish you brisk trading in the run-up to Meads Magic and Christmas.
Kind regards,

Peter

MEADS NATWEST BANK

I've heard that the Meads Natwest Bank will close and a local business will buy it and turn the building into a Wine Bar and Hotel.
This would be great for the village and somewhere nice to drink rather than the other two boring Pubs near by!!

Sussex Military History Society presents
Newhaven Fort – Saturday 24 May 2014
Following their highly successful Study Day in 2013, the Sussex Military History Society is holding another informative Study Day on Saturday 24th May 2014, again based in the School room casemate, Newhaven Fort, Newhaven, which members of the public and military enthusiasts alike are invited to participate in.

The theme for the day is ‘The Great War 1914 -1918’ with all speakers giving expert illustrated lectures.
Speakers in order of appearance are;
Peter Hart with ‘Defeat at Gallipoli’
One of the most famous campaigns in history, Gallipoli forced Churchill from office, established the reputation of Turkey’s iconic leader Kemal Ataturk and marked Australia’s emergence as a nation in her own right. The attempt to seize the Dardanelles, capture Constantinople and knock Turkey out of the war has been portrayed as the one imaginative strategy of the war. But it proved catastrophic for the Allies right from the first landings when the seas ran red with blood. Peter Hart believes that our perception of Gallipoli has been mistaken for too long.

Luke Barber with ‘The Seaford Camps 1914 – 1919 and beyond’
Luke’s presentation will outline the history of the camps at Seaford, drawing on documentary and pictorial sources. How much of the camps and their associated training areas, both above and below ground, remain today? Archaeological research since 2009 is discovering there is a lot more to be discovered that sheds light on domestic life in the camps along with the rigorous training troops were put through in the surrounding countryside.

Ed Tyhurst takes attendees on a guided tour of Newhaven Fort
The current Newhaven Fort structure was built around the 1860's and is the largest work of defence ever constructed in Sussex. It has stood firm as a vital element in Britain’s coastal defence through two World Wars.

Sue Light with ‘The Fairest Force -The Mobilisation of Nurses’
On the eve of the Great War the British military nursing service was just 297 members strong. By the Armistice the number of nurses, both trained and untrained, who served the B.E.F. at some time during the conflict approached 100,000. As men clamoured to be seen at recruiting offices, how were nurses recruited, who were they and how did they adapt to military life? This is the story of the mobilisation of nurses during the autumn of 1914.

Kevin Gordon with ‘Seaford and Eastbourne in the Great War’
Eastbourne and Seaford were closer to the War than many other British towns as the sights and sounds of battle could be witnessed by residents. Both towns had military camps; Seaford a training base for troops from across the empire, particularly the West Indies and Canada, and Eastbourne for convalescence. There were also aeroplane bases nearby. Civilian life in the towns during the conflict is considered as well.

All the speakers are donating their time free of charge, with all proceeds going to the 'Royal British Legion’ charity.
Admission is £15.00 per person, advance ticket only.
Seating is limited to 80 people so early application is advised.
Booking forms are available online at
www.sussexmilitary.org.uk
or contact Stewart Angell 07714923925 for further information.

FLY TIPPING IN MEADS

"Since Sunday 3rd November there has been several incidents reported of Fly Tipping occurring in Meads Ward.
It has generally been in the form of builders rubble in plastic bags previously containing building materials such as sand.

Usually two bags have been put at the base of a tree, lamp post or sewerage street vent pipe after dark.
The roads involved include St Johns Road, Buxton Road, Paradise Drive and Naomi Close/Carlisle Road junction.

The Neighbourhood First team officers have quickly arranged for the removal by the cleansing contractor.
However, no evidence has been found yet as to where or from whom, it has been removed.

There a several building works being undertaken across Meads on commercial business and residential properties.
Just think it is very likely that the scrupulous builder is charging the client for disposal of the waste materials which should be dealt with in the appropriate way at a waste disposal centre and yet is not doing it, thus saving on the cost. Instead, we are all contributing for its disposal through our council tax.

If you have any information about the fly tipping; know where it could have come from, have seen it being dropped or seen something suspicious, please get in touch with the EBC Customer First Tel : 410000, Neighbourhood First Team officers or me.

Thank you for your help.
Kind regards,
Roy"

Journalist interested in Meads' stories

Hello all,
My name is Dan Gibbs and I am a second year, Sports Journalist student at Brighton University.
This year, myself and a another student have been given the task of finding and reporting on news stories in the Meads Area.
I have had a detailed look into your website and it is great to see that the people of Meads have a site to go to for useful information.
I would ask, that if anybody has any news stories that you feel are an issue to people in the area or if there are any events taking place which could make a story then I'd love to hear from you.

Please contact me on
dg165@uni.brighton.ac.uk
or call me on 07800767617
Thanks for your help,
Regards,
Dan

Street Lighting

A big thank you to all the residents who turned out on Saturday 28th September to see what street lighting changes are planned for the Meads area of Eastbourne.

I can report that most people were in favour of the changes and hopefully ourselves and PC Ian Miller were able to allay some concerns.
It was a pleasure to chat with so many interesting people! If anyone would like further information please contact me.

Memorial Service for Roger Stiggers

It is with great sadness that I advise of Roger Stigger’s passing.
Roger was one of the original members of the MCA and served as Secretary for many years.
His unique sense of humour and knowledge of planning and council mechanisms have been surely missed by the Committee.
A Memorial Service will take place at All Saints' Church, Grange Road, Eastbourne, at 12.15pm on Monday 30th September.
A private family committal at the crematorium will take place immediately afterwards.
No flowers, but donations may be made to St. Wilfred’s Hospice c/o Payne & Sons, 143 Seaside Road, Eastbourne.

Student available for part-time work

I am currently an undergraduate going into my second year of studies at the University of Brighton.

As with all students, financing is a tough task, and so consequently I am enquiring whether there are any part-time jobs available within the Meads area.

I am a hard working, intelligent and motivated student with flexible hours open to work.

Furthermore I am moving into shared accommodation on Meads Street mid-September so I am also local and easily accessible at short notice.

tuition on Windows 8
I have just upgraded my computer, from Windows XP to Windows 8, progressing from Microsoft Office 2003 to 2013. I now find myself in a daze whilst I explore the maze in trying to find where everything is.
if anyone has experience of using this, and can offer tuition to an OAP, please contact Maureen - 485971 or email maureencopping@yahoo.co.uk
I have been on computers for some time now, starting with BBC Electron, progtressing to a PC on Microsoft 2000, XP and now this Windows 8.
fine for a tablet or mobile phone, but I am using it on a desk top, and find it more frustrating than my previous slow computer.
I live in Lower Willingdon. Here's hoping someone can show me how!

LOST TOM-TOM...SAT NAV...MEADS AREA...DON'T DO WHAT I DID!
Leaving things on the roof of your car is inviting tragedy and tears.
Unfortunately on Sunday 21st I put my Tom-Tom (in its black zipper bag) on the roof of my car while I checked a rear door I then got in and drove off....
Somewhere in The Dentons, Paradise Drive or Victoria Drive it must have slid off the roof and crunched into the tarmac.
If you have found it please call me on 01323 737928

Meads Magic 2012 £479.50 and the Wallets, Purses and Pockets
Meads Magic 2012 Wallets, purses and pockets, deep or not so deep were there on the day.
The day was Meads Magic 2012 when good intentions were out and about, guess the weight of this, what’s that, try this, win a polish, from a turkey to a cake were out there waiting for a winner.
Christmas carols drifted on the air and mulled wine and hot chestnuts were somewhere. ( A rewarding hunt.)

Life will never be the same…..but it will.

With the good intentions of Meads Street Traders and Daisy of Barley Sugar a knowledge centre, the wallets, purses and pockets were not found wanting. Coinage and notes flowed. A pot of £479.50 had been created and this has been given to St Wilfred’s Hospice.

The traders, the customers, the visitors, the locals, the choirs, the friends, Andy & Graham on the barricades and many more all came together to make this event and its funds for a good cause.
We did it, well done all, high fives, throw your hat in the air, dance about a bit, we did it!

The 2012 good intentions have faded, the wallets, purses and pockets are busy on something else, everyone’s busy, so what’s new. It’s 2013 and 2012 was only a pot of money. So for 2013 the target that’s wanted is a wheelbarrow full.
But you can’t always get what you want, you get what you need. But you can try.
