Your Town Your Ideas Your Future
On 11 January the College hosted Your Town Your Ideas Your Future, an event where nine schools from the Eastbourne Schools Partnership each presented an idea to make Eastbourne a better and more suitable place for young people. An audience of eighty local leaders from business, the council and other sectors attended the event, and after the presentations they spoke with each group to help take the plans forward. The range of ideas included new cycle paths, a new ice rink and outdoor cinema, and new ways of supporting young people’s mental health.
The College team put forward a scheme to build a new beach gym in the town. Stephen Lloyd MP singled out their presentation for its professionalism, and Councillor David Tutt, leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, pledged his support to make their beach gym a reality.
