The new bridge - just needs staining
The rebuilding of Eric’s bridge is an example of what can be achieved when those who live in a community work together. Led by Jack Scott and Stan Beattie many residents became involved in this community project which saw Eric's bridge being rebuilt after it was accidentally removed by contractors working on the coastal path. The residents had a vision of what they wanted to achieve and by combining skills and knowledge they were able to achieve something really special. In many ways, the rebuilding of the bridge is a tribute to Eric and all that he has given to the village of East Haven during his lifetime.
