APRIL 12 is a key date in the nation’s diary.

That is the day Eastbourne and our surrounding towns and villages should come back to life.

Shops, hairdressers, and gyms can all open up from that date.

So too can pubs and restaurants, albeit it outside only at first.

Libraries and zoos will also be opening their doors and some holidays in this country will be allowed.

Bournefree magazine wants to mark the special ‘relaunch’ of our great county with a special edition in April.

We will hit the streets on Thursday April 8 – after the Easter weekend – and we want to be telling everyone your good news both in print and online, and our social media.

You might be reopening your shop.

You might be reopening your hairdressers or gym.

You might be reopening your pub.

We want to hear from you here at Bournefree magazine.

Email gail@custard-design.co.uk or petelindsey30@hotmail.com

We look forward to hearing from you.

Of course, other key dates are May 17 when the hospitality sector can reopen.

Then, June 21 and finger crossed life should be back to normal…

Remember: Bournefree: at the heart of YOUR community.
