Local Scam Report

On two occasions recently a man has rung local residents’ doorbells and

asked for money. He claimed to be a new resident of the development on

St Andrews Road and had lost his keys, he asked for £20 fare to

Eastbourne to obtain his spare keys.


This is apparently an increasingly common ploy which has occurred

several times in the town centre and has now migrated to our area. We

don’t have an accurate description of this individual and the best advice is

not to open the door to anyone you don’t know and definitely not to give

money to anyone with such a story.


If anybody has knowledge of a similar incident please give the details in a

comment on this post, we will pass these to the Police.

Dear residents

I hope you and your corner of the neighbourhood are well.

I write to invite you to our Annual General Meeting where we nominate people to our committee and set our priorities for the coming year.

Please make an effort to attend. The current committee needs fresh input from you if the Association is to be sustainable. Hope to see you there!
