    Eastbourne, population 97,000(2010 Est.), located on the south coast 70 miles due south of London, is one of the most attractive resort towns in the country. It may be approached from the north by the A22, and from the east and west by the A27 and the A259. The club is centrally located on the western edge of Eastbourne town centre, by Saffrons Sports Club and overlooked by the town hall clock. The entrance to the club car park and clubhouse is in Saffrons Road, a short walk from Eastbourne railway station, the main shopping area and the seafront. Head for the landmark town hall clock tower and you can't miss us. When not bowling, you may take a short drive west and you will find yourself at the top of the Beachy Head cliffs and the start of the South Downs. While walking here in the summer of 1905, Claude Debussy, taking a summer break from Paris, composed 'La Mer' (The Sea) - the three symphonic sketches that changed the face of classical music. From the cliff tops you can see the many changing shapes and colours of the sea that inspired him. Don't be surprised to come across troops of ramblers heading off on the South Downs Way, or adventurous folks leaping off the edges of cliffs, to be miraculously kept aloft by multicoloured kites, riding the thermals. A short drive to the east lies Pevensey Bay and '1066 Country', which is a delight for birdwatchers and historians. Come and appreciate the gentle sloping beaches that proved so attractive to William of Normandy, and Julius Caesar a thousand years before him.
