Councillors help to improve security at tennis courts

Councillors have donated £1,000 towards installing CCTV cameras at Old Town Rec tennis courts following vandalism there. 

Old Town councillors approved the funding application through Eastbourne Borough Council's Devolved Budget scheme. 

The request was made by Old Town Hub Community Interest Company (CIC), a locally run group that recently took over the running of the courts and aims to get more people playing tennis there, alongside opening a café. 

Old Town councillors also granted £200 for a Christmas family fun day to go ahead at St Michael’s and All Angels Church in Willingdon Road and £250 for an extra tree to be planted along Vicarage Drive. 

In Upperton, councillors provided £195 towards keeping on external lighting at St Mary’s Church in Church Street, throughout the winter. 

Meanwhile, Langney councillors approved a £500 request from Treebourne for a wildflower meadow in Sevenoaks Park. 

A further £1,726 was agreed by St Anthony’s councillors for a new park bench to be installed in the ward.
