A selection of emails received at the Haven News Inbox today. 

Seaford Station:

I'm delighted to hear about the Seaford Railway Station renovations. Seaford doesn't have many attractive old buildings, so this one should be treasured. Is there any plan to remove the hideous prisoner-of-war style wire and concrete post fence surrounding the station car park? It is not an attractive sight as you approach the town centre and serves no useful purpose that I can think of.
Yours sincerely - Stephen Newberry.

Seaford Splash Point:

May I thank Anne Marr for her support regarding the issue of the closure of Splash Point. There is clearly growing local support to get Splash Point reopened, this can be seen by the many ribbons that have been tied to these very permanent looking ‘temporary gates’.

Anne raises a very interesting question regarding which authority may actually be responsible for any maintenance work at Splash Point.  Perhaps the question needs to be asked as to which authority, be that East Sussex CC, Lewes District Council, Seaford Town Council or the Environment Agency authorised and paid for these ‘temporary gates’ to close Splash Point to the public.

Is it possibly not the case that by sanctioning the closure of Splash Point and by paying for these ‘temporary gates’, which ever authority took this upon themselves, has admitted responsibility and liability by ‘default’.

Given that Splash Point is a major beauty spot and tourist attraction within Seaford and given that Seaford falls within Norman Baker’s constituency, perhaps Norman Baker may be better able to unravel the question of who authorised these gates and who might be responsible for the repairs to the promenade at Splash Point.

And so I would urge everyone to get involved with this campaign to get Splash Point reopened. Be a nuisance, ask questions, send emails, whatever it takes, its the only way anything will be achieved.
Geoff King, Marine Drive, Seaford.
