I have just read, with horror, that Beachy Head lighthouse is likely to lose its distinctive red and white stripey livery. This would be utterly frightful and must not be allowed to happen! A campaign called Save Our Stripes is hoping to raise sufficient funds to pay for the specialist contractors to paint it, Crown Paints have pledged to provide the paints and the World Lighthouse Society and Association of Lighthouse Keepers are backing the campaign.
A worthy cause indeed.
