Your Say

LETTER: Both are restrictions on freedom

It is interesting to see that the House of Commons voted in favour of relaxing the Abortion Law, whereas it voted against relaxing the ‘Right to Die’.

Your Say

LETTER: Work focuses on public realm enhancements

Given the obvious publicity to be given to the completion of the first stage of the Hailsham Town Centre improvements you would think that East Sussex County Council might make an effort to ensure that information they give in their publicity material was accurate and not misleading.

I was very disappointed to hear that schools in East Sussex have been disproportionately affected by school funding issues.

A drawing of Brede Place, East Sussex, the home of Sir Goddard Oxenbridge in Tudor times. Exceptionally tall, some believed the knight was an ogre who ate young children. Inset is his ornate tomb in St Georges Church, Brede.

Your Say

LETTER: We won’t vote for you again!

On 22nd March, Wealden District Council is to decide on planning applications, which, if approved, would destroy – for ever – much of our countryside around the rural village of East Hoathly.

Your Say

LETTER: Let’s have more

Good, let’s have more of this sound common sense – yet another elder statesman lamblasts government policy over Brexit.

Your Say

LETTER: It beggars belief

Britain has a proud heritage of helping those seeking sanctuary, from the middle ages we have had an approach of ‘liberal tolerance’ for those fleeing persecution, war and violence.
