My Great Grandfather was George Alce Foord and I was hooping that somebody somewhere has an old photograph of the station house or the cottages

I went for a walk with friends at the weekend to Tide Mills. It's a very interesting area with much history. I was so disappointed at the amount of dog shit everywhere NOT picked up by their owners. Should dogs be kept on leads while in certain areas such as Tide Mills. It would be nice to be able to walk and not have to constantly keep looking at the ground to avoid the dog shit.

On Sunday 17th August my wife and I went for a walk down to the beach and along the foreshore as we ofetn do (we live in Newhaven). We noticed a chap cutting sea kale and putting the leaves into a black bin liner. I questioned him as I believed that this was illegal. He told me it wasn't as long as you only cut the leaves and didn't dig up the plants by the roots. I told him I had read a report in The Argus about people doing this on Shoreham Beach and selling it to retsurants, which is not allowed apparently. The chap told me that this was probably because it was a protected site rather than the plant itself being a protected species, which he claimed it was not. He told me that the sea kale was for his own consumption but I found out he had come ak=ll the way from the Ashdown Forest and a large bin liner full seemed rather a lot for his own consumption! Anyway I gave him the benefit of the doubt, but a couple of hundred yards along we saw anothe chap doing the same so approached him, at which he departed at great speed looking sheepish. I just wondered if anyone knew what the status of sea kale was as far as legaiity of picking went; I have looked on the internet but there seem to be conflicting views, with some saying it is good to pick a few leaves as it encourages growth, and others saying it should be left well alone as it is illegal to collect. I know it is abundant at Tide Mills but like many things, if it became over cultivated it would not be....I am aware it is already quite a rare plant. We love Tide Mills as is it such a unique place with fanatstic flora and fauna and we use this special area to walk, run, swim, photograph and just sit end enjoy!

Hi there , I was wondering who was responsible for maintaining the very interesting information boards which sadly have rusted through. If it is the town , district or county council I will be happy to lobby them for repair or replacement. Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes
