EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has praised the organisers of the Friends of Seaside Rec Fun Day, which took place on Sunday.

She said: “I had the pleasure of drawing the raffle prizes at The Friends of Seaside Rec Annual Family Fun Day.

My congratulations go to Carol and John Bowman, and their team, for putting on another excellent event for their community.

Formed in April 2014, they have done so much to improve the facilities at Seaside Rec, the only ‘green space’ in the Devonshire Ward.”
