Bexhill- We Love You!

posted by Andrea on 09 Aug 2008 at 9:43 pm

Have been to visit Bexhill as we are thinking of relocating in a couple of years time and what can I say but what a beautiful town you have!
Happy smiling people who bother to pass the time of day with other human beings, a distinct lack of litter on the streets and lots of good shops and a wonderful beach.
Bexhill people are lovely, friendly and should be proud of the beautiful town they live in.

I agree with Andrea. We are moving there later this year. We are coming down from near Croydon and Bexhill is a wonderful place and can't wait.

Hi Caroline
We moved down to Bexhill 8 years ago from Crawley,and love it. I was born in Croydon and spent most of my young life in and around that area.
The people are very friendly here, and always stop and talk as Andrea said.
We live in the West Bexhill area (Collington) and find it quiet, but also you can walk to the town, the beach and Collington railway station. I think we chose one of the best areas,as we did not know one area from another when we were thinking of moving here.
Anyway hope you have found somewhere you like, if you have already moved here.

No Nice Pubs!

Yes, I'm fond of Bex too - but why are the pubs in the town centre so dire? A shame.

Inadequate Bus Service

posted by Kathryn on 23 Feb 2009 at 11:08 am

there seems to be one reliable and regular bus service in the area, the 99, and that's it, which makes things difficult for many people without their own transport, particularly for those living between the town centre and Little Common. For instance, my mother, in her eighties and unable to walk very far, lives in Collington and has to cope with a 2-hour gap in her local sevice into town between 12.15 and 2.15 every day. In the afternoon there's also a gap around 3 pm due to the buses being used then for school services. As a result the taxi firms make a fortune - and there's now no longer a bus stop outside the main supermarket, Sainsbury's, as the taxi firms have commandeered the spot for their rank.
No one has yet mentioned this problem, which seemed worth raising. The community buses plug some of the gaps - but should they really need to?
