Fort Fun is reopening this spring.

That’s the wonderful news this Friday morning.

It’s been derelict along Eastbourne Seafront for far too long now.

A council spokesman said yesterday: “The team from Wingrove is working to open the soft play areas as soon as possible.

While the required repairs and improvements are extensive, the venue will open this spring and in plenty of time for the summer season.”

Wingrove has the lease to run the site from EBC.
