LAST month the Defiant Sports charity was furious with Eastbourne Borough Council.

It said it may have to close after the council kicked them off the Fort Fun site on Eastbourne Seafront.

The charity said it had been clearing the mess to the value of £75,000.

Joint statement from Loretta Lock, Managing Director of Defiant Sports and Councillor Stephen Holt, Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council

We met this week to discuss various options for how the council can best accommodate the needs of Defiant Sports moving forward.

The meeting was very positive and focused on finding solutions, both in the short and longer term.

We have agreed that council officers, in close liaison with Defiant Sports, will explore opportunities across all the authority’s sporting and community facilities.

We are both feel encouraged that a suitable venue can be found and hope to share those details soon.
