THERE is a plea today to use the Beatty Road shops despite the pay to park row.

Traders are suffering because we now have to pay if we shop there for more than 10 minutes.

Here’s Wendy Bow Gilmour-Larkin: “Please keep using our local shops in Beatty Road.

“They were there through the lockdown for us.. you don’t have to park in the car park.. use the roads, walk… just don’t let Mullane Holdings destroy our lovely community.

“My family have lived at Langney Point since 1966.. Please share and support our local shops.”
