Re: Hastings Grammar School

I remember "Chick" Henshall, and not at all fondly. "I won't have it at my school", he used to bellow at morning assembly in reference to bullying. In reality it depended on who the respective parties were, because he was a bit of a one for favourites. If you were being pushed around by an older and...

Re: Red Squirrels

I don't remember ever seeing any, and I go back to before the 1970's. I think the greys wiped them out a long time ago.

Re: Car service

When I lived nearer to Hastings I used Vic Homewood in Ellenslea Road (behind Warrior Square station, so quite near the front). Never had any problems with the work or the charges.
