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.

If the local community wants to save it, it needs to organise fast. Nick Terdre reports. Photos courtesy of Roberts Photographic.
