This weekend grants us the final bank holiday of the summer, so let 1 Small Step give you the skinny on some upcoming events to help cement the end of this lovely season.
Eastbourne Walking Tours This gentle walking tour of Eastbourne starts at the Bandstand on the middle prom, lasting one and a half hours with 12 stopping points of interest along a 1 mile round starting and finishing at Eastbourne Bandstand.
Join the tour to unearth interesting facts about landmarks, learn more about the history of seafront hotels, discover what happened to the Pier during World War Two, the location of a disused air raid shelter and why crabs walk sideways!
The Eastbourne Walking Tours are available five times a week until the end of October, taking place at 3pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, at 8pm on Thursday and 11am and 8pm on Sundays, offering the chance to enjoy a gentle stroll after dinner.
The tours cost £5 per person and can be paid on arrival. Contact email@example.com or turn up on the day.

Marie Curie Walk 10 Say au revoir to the summer with an evening stroll down Eastbourne’s famous promenade and raise money for charity at the same time.
