Support was shown for BHS workers in Eastbourne today (1 August).
Eastbourne Peoples Assembly gathered on Bankers Corner gathering signatures in Thank You cards for the workers, who are thought to be approaching their final day in the job tomorrow.
Brian Wilkes said, “The 30-odd staff here are going to lose their jobs, which leaves them with a really uncertain future. In an environment of austerity at the moment, is there going to be employment out there for them? As a gesture of goodwill, we’re going to take in a few gifts for them today, just to show there are people that care for them.”
The group presented flowers and chocolates to the store for the staff room, in the hope of boosting the staff morale.
