Congratulations to Laurie Beetham who is the recipient of the John Lutman Award for Community Service 2017.

The award was made at the Parish Assembly on Friday 12th May and the photo shows the trophy being presented to Laurie by Janet Lutman.

Laurie was also given a cheque for £150 to be donated to his nominated charity the RSPCA.


Laurie has for many years monitored the condition of the cliffs and the pumping system put in to help preserve them.

He makes checks on the pumps and takes readings in the pumping house to see how much water they are removing.

He goes down to the beach regularly to check the state of the cliffs and takes parties of visitors down to see the works that have been carried out.

He is the village's contact point with staff at Rother District Council who bring contractors in to carry out work when required.


As a village we owe him our thanks for what he does and he thoroughly deserves to receive the John Lutman Award.


In accepting the award Laurie made the point that he will be unable to continue for ever and would like an assistant who could be trained to take over when he steps down, so if interested please contact the Parish Council. Contact details are on www.fairlight.org.uk
