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.

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...

An image of the pier circa 1970s when it was used for a variety of purposes.
