IT was an early start this morning for Stephen Holt,  Chief Executive of Your Eastbourne BID.

GMTV chose Eastbourne Town Centre as the place to be discussing what will happen to our shops on December 3.

Well, they will all be open and Stephen told viewers to shop local or we will lose our High Street.

He said traders were relieved that they will all be allowed to reopen and he said Shop Local Love Local was the theme for Christmas in Eastbourne this Christmas.
