LETTER: Thanks for their efforts

Following my letter of last week [March 17] regarding the Environment Agency’s Flood Alleviation work at Huggett’s Green, West Quay Newhaven, I would like to thank cllr Andy Smith and the team at LDC Parks Department for their efforts in trying to resolve the issues being experienced.

I hope that following a meeting with officers from Newhaven Town Council, we will be able to find a workable solution to enable events to proceed as planned and the hard work of SCDA and many others will not be in vain.

I am certainly looking forward to The Fish Festival in June and the upcoming Raft Race/Regatta in July, as I know are many townsfolk and visitors are too.

Cllr Steve Saunders

Mayor of Newhaven
