Happy Birthday to Us!
In October 2016 we celebrated our 40th anniversary and at a celebration tea held at the Cavendish Hotel in Eastbourne,

from many of the Towns and Parishes we serve, together with the Mayor of Eastbourne, representatives from our suppliers
and from Wealden and East Sussex County Councils and our local MP. Our guest of honour was The Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex.
