Thieves and vandals target Eastbourne seafront – again! But why, oh why?

The Friends of Eastbourne Seafront have decided to temporarily remove the remaining benches from the cycle track, one was recently vandalised and this week someone stole a bench.

These benches were paid for by Friends of Eastbourne Seafront and made and installed by volunteers for the benefit of families who want to sit and watch their children playing.

The Friends say: “It is difficult to understand the mindset of people who want to steal and vandalise and spoil things for the majority of people.

So for the winter the remaining two benches are being stored. If you know anything about this or spot the smaller bench which was stolen this week, please get in touch.”
