Things have changed greatly in the past 90 years.

Come along and listen to their stories !The oral histories will be housed at the end of the project in Heritage Eastbourne’s digital store for future generations.We will also be taking the opportunity to show our first heritage exhibition, Secret Catch, alongside.Secret Catch is an exhibition by Causeway School pupils about the history of Eastbourne Fishing families, and will include paintings by Community Stuff’s creative director Clare Hackney-Ring.The show will be officially opened by the Mayor of Eastbourne on Tuesday 15th January at 6.30pm.
