Pells Primary School property guardians: ‘We are not squatters, we are here to help’

Pells Primary School in Lewes, which closed in July last year, has since been rented out to people known as “property guardians” at a reduced rate to keep the property in working condition.

However, when speaking to The Argus, property guardian and previous hotel worker Eden Griffith, 21, explained how the property has had windows smashed and glass bottles thrown onto the school site late at night.

Those that live there have also been accused of being “squatters” from passers-by despite paying a monthly rental fee.
