EASTBOURNE Foodbank has welcomed a Royal visitor!

Peter Field is The Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex, which means he is the Queen’s representative for the county.

He presented three key members of staff with flowers of thanks for leading the teams during the extremely busy Covid-19 lockdown weeks.

During this 13 week period the Foodbank provided food for 7,853 people.

Mr Field bought thanks and best wishes from Her Majesty the Queen.
