Mayor Alderman Edward Hillman formally opened the ‘handsome range of municipal buildings’ on the 9th of November 1893 and was presented with a ‘handsome silver master key’ engraved to mark the occasion. The Sussex Express reporter’s full half page report listed all the largely local builders, craftsmen and materials employed in the build.

THE FACE OF THE HIGH STREET

Have you found that there's anything that people have asked for more now after lockdown has been lifted?
People have naturally been coming in for a lot of facemasks and gloves.

Of all the events and meetings that happen on the High Street which are you most looking forward to experiencing again when social restrictions are eased?
I have to say bonfire, I’ve been a staunch bonfire fan for absolutely years.
