It’s great to see so much constructive activity planned over the week and I’m sure it’s going to lead to lots of positive outcomes for the town. There are jobs out there and there are lots of people who really want to get to work, the Big Week of Work is an opportunity to bring all this together and increase local employment. It’s all about helping to get Eastbourne working. I’ll be there to talk to people about their job searching stories and also share some of my own experiences.”
