Sign up to save St Leonards post office!

Things are looking up in central St Leonards, with lots of new businesses opening their doors in London Road, Kings Road and Norman Road. But the area will take a big step backwards if the Post Office is allowed to implement its plan to close the Crown post office in London Road. If the local community wants to save it, it needs to organise fast. Nick Terdre reports. Photos courtesy of Roberts Photographic.

146th Birthday tribute to Robert Tressell

A St Leonards based master stone carver with work in Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and The House Of Commons, and the proprietor of seafront retailer, St Leonards Central at Marine Court, have brought together their passion for Robert Tressell and his seminal novel ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists’ to launch a project to create a permanent public memorial to the author in the town.

Down with Black Friday, up with Frost Fayre!

Black Friday, yet another clarion call to spend, spend, spend from Big Commerce, is not to every retailer’s taste. St Leonard’s Central proprietor Clive Gross has become so incensed by the damaging effect of the hype around Black Friday that today he is running a special ‘No Discount Day’ at the shop instead. And if you want to support local producers and retailers in St Leonards, in addition to Clive, don’t forget to attend the Frost Fayre in Kings Road tomorrow. Nick Terdre reports.

Return of the prodigal…clock!

Almost 80 years after it was first installed and 40 after it left the modernist landmark of Marine Court in St Leonards-on-Sea, one of the original electric clocks designed exclusively for the apartments in the building has finally returned home. Clive Gross tells Nick Terdre how it happened.

Forget Labour – it’s time to move on

By-elections results: as you were

There were no surprises in the outcome of last week’s by-elections, with both Labour and Conservative holding the three seats in play, but both the Green Party and an independent candidate were pleased with their showing. Nick Terdre reports.
