We’re still here making a big impact during Lockdown.

We are proud and delighted that we have continued to publish during this third Lockdown.

Printing a minimum of 10,000 copies is important both for our readers and advertisers as we continue to raise our profile.

Some people have asked how we have continued to distribute the 10,000 papers this last month.

Very easy has been the answer.

Our delivery team has focused on Eastbourne Railway Station, ESK, Waitrose in Old Town and Hailsham, DGH reception and masses of other outlets across the area.

We are very grateful to outlets such as Tesco and Londis in Grove Road, Tesco and Co-Op in Meads, and Tesco in Hampden Park.

Old Town is covered by Green Street Post Office, Nisa, Trident Fish Bar, Co-Op and Sainsburys while Rodmill Post Office is another outlet.

Copies are also in the Premier store in Pevensey Bay, and in Polegate the magazines are in the Post Office, Millfields and McColls.

Others include Seaside Post Office and East Dean Village Stores.

There are others but hopefully that gives you a flavour of our very wide distribution.

Our online offer is growing rapidly too. We have more than 70,000 visitors to our website each month.

We are breaking news 24/7 and you can find us at Bournefree Live – Latest news from Eastbourne, Polegate, Hailsham, Pevensey, Bexhill and Sussex.

Our Facebook account is also attracting more attention. In the past month, it has attracted more than 90,000 engagements.

Hopefully by March, our schools will be open and there is more optimism around shops and other businesses being allowed to resume trading.

This month’s edition focuses on positivity and we will all need that in the coming months.
