Re: Ferris Wheel

Yes, I think the Ferris wheel is probably about right for Hastings. It would be really nice to have something happening which was intellectual or historic, or even just intelligent, but unfortunately the best that Hastings can manage is often cheap and tacky. I am not decrying the amusements, this i...

Re: Ferris Wheel

Got an image of the event on Sunday at the Stade. Looks fascinating.

Re: Ferris Wheel

I am much more interested in the historic military vehicle event on Sunday (caught my eye in passing). Nobody trying to make cash out of cheap attractions, just some enthusiastic volunteers doing something worthwhile and beneficial:- An amazing procession of military vehicles is set to make an impre...

Re: Ferris Wheel

I am as usual suspicious of half-hearted attempts to be ambitious and ape things which are done much better by other towns and cities, instead of concentrating on what is unique about Hastings and the historic quaintness which tourists come here to enjoy. But it could have its uses. Would it be poss...

Re: Pier

Ah, intelligent comments from someone again .. (sorry!). You are quite right, there are a couple of newish cafes along Robertson Street which I should have checked out. An Italian cafe and a wine bar. Nice-looking people in there, so they must be reasonably ok. I like good wine, not the high-class v...

Re: Pier

I don't think I want to say anything further on this topic. Some of the responses are ill-informed and do not appear to make sense, it's getting too irritating.

Re: Pier

My own wants have nothing to do with it. You live in Hastings, so presumably you are aware of the existence of some disco/nightclubs in places like Robertson Street/Cambridge Road and there are one or two in George Street. Teenagers (and older) like to go to those places and what's wrong with that? ...

Re: Pier

Kids grow up faster these days but I can't see young children going to discos or other events on their own any time soon .. Obviously I (and Bexhill Town Council) are talking about youth. It is normal for them to want to go to their own kind of music events - I did, have fond memories of letting my ...

Re: Pier

I'm not sure refined is quite the right word about Bexhill, it's a bit slow and a bit elderly, but definitely a nicer atmosphere and some very good cafes on the seafront. There are moves apparently to make the town more young-friendly and more of an entertainment destination. That change will take a...

Re: Pier

Yes, the pier is suddenly open again, the re-opening moved forward after pressure, it appears. But for what? Nothing much on there except a cafe or two! I'm not sure about the relevance of the beggars and junkies - they are everywhere of course, but that is surely a rather separate issue .. I have t...
