Mr Jon Stevens:
Firstly, frequent retuning is a very bad idea and is never recommended, especially if you have weak or no signal, or badly pixellated pictures. In most cases it will just clear the correct tuning and possibly tune to to a weak signal from another transmitter that will disappear as weather conditions change.
If you are getting Sky (LCN233) - that is carried on the ArqA/COM5 multiplex.
See https://www.freeview.co.uk/corporate/platform-management/channel-listings-industry-professionals for which channels are carried on which multiplex.
You won't be getting the signals from Bexhill as it is a "Light" transmitter and doesn't have any COM (or Local) multiplexes.
As this is a communal aerial, do any other people on the same aerial have similar problems?
If you provide a full postcode we can look at the predicted reception for your locale and the most likely transmitter.
Please have a look at which way (approx. compass bearing) the aerial is pointing and whether its rods (or squashed Xs) are horizontal or vertical. Can you see if its downlead is secure and not flapping in the wind?
