The unseasonably summery conditions made for a slow session – could see plenty of people cooling themselves on the balcony, the terrace and the beach. The ‘P’ word tends to put people off and have tried hard not to say it … but children and young people tend to be less easily put off by the idea of making poems ! there was a nice thoughtful piece from a student from Sussex Coast College and some local school girls were keen to express their love of Bexhill in swirly felt pen. Some are torn by the desire to just walk away thinking it’s not for them and then a word of phrase catches their eye and then they play around with words for a while – sometimes happy to display their creation on the window, others preferring to just leave their verse on the table.

Well done to everyone who got creative and took part !
