One thought on “Hastings

  1. Don’t forget the De La Warr Pavilion ! It’s been neglected because the Thatcher Government used it to dump people from East London, while investing pitifully small sums in its infrastructure – schools, libraries etc etc. It’s a tribute to the people of Hastings, and to the Jerwood, that it is as vibrant and attractive as it is.
