SOME wise words from our Council Leader Stephen Holt.

He has asked for a meeting with the Sussex Police Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne, who was only re-elected last week.

Stephen wants to discuss police numbers – clearly Eastbourne needs more.

He also wants – by working together – for residents, visitors and businesses to feel safe in Eastbourne.

“With retail crime across the country at a national high, I am very keen to see that those who work in shops, restaurants and other businesses get the support they need.”
