Joint Statement from Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council

A statement relating to the new restrictions coming into place when the existing Lockdown ends on December 2nd:-

“The Tier 2 government announcement today for East Sussex will mean that as we follow the coronavirus restrictions, seasonal festivities will be different this year.

However, our teams will continue to support the most vulnerable residents throughout the coming weeks and over the Christmas period.

We will do this by maintaining our community hub operation and by supporting the work of our superb voluntary groups in local communities.

Council officers will also continue to administer all available government funding support for businesses.

These are very difficult times for everyone, but we will do everything possible to assist the people who need our help most.

Local retailers have had a particularly tough time this year and we can all help them by shopping local in the run up to Christmas.”

Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council launched a new website to promote the wide array of local independent shops in the area – www.shoplocal.info
