I was somewhat distraught on a recent visit to Eastbourne when I discovered the fish fountain described previously on these pages had disappeared! Not just the fish but the water feature and plinth had also vanished.

Alarmed, I emailed the Enterprise Centre and heard no response for several weeks. I became convinced that I had uncovered some dark fishy conspiracy. But today I received this wonderful news:

Dear Nick

Many thanks for your message. We love it too – the bronze fish is our
logo and we are giving it a brand new home. Our designers are currently
working on its new setting as it will be re positioned in our entrance

Hope to see it in its new home very soon.

Best wishes


I will be investigating further the next time I’m in the area.
