Hastings promenade

Visiting Hastings for a few days. Pleased to see the introduction and growth of plants and shrubs around the crazy golf in the Old Town. Saw several groups of youths on the course during the day just having a good laugh with each other at their shots, failures and successes. The Pelham roundabout wi...

Re: The new multicultural Hastings

Hairygit. It is very easy to slip inadvertently into expressing an opinion based upon some press reports, that I assume is where the story of the Bangladeshi men may have come from. Our very own soon to be gone Prime Minister jumped on the bandwagon whilst Home Secretary and thought she would have a...

Re: EU Elections

By 'corrupt and self serving' do you I wonder, include NigelFarage? Supposed champion of British fishermen, appointment as a member of the EU fisheries body but who only attended 10% of their meeting; who swans into the EU parliament makes a brief speech often insulting colleagues and then walks out...

Re: The Church's of Hastings

Hollington Church in the Wood (no longer in the wood I understand) and I have an engaving of it on my wall to this day. I was married there but at the time had no idea that many generations before, my forebears were in the congregation. And St Clements (Halton) not the old town one that was demolish...
