Chancellor to pay visit to town

Have your say

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, is set to visit town today (Friday).

He will be officially opening Havelock Place, a £7 million regeneration project in Hastings and a new business centre for small businesses in the region.

Questions have been raised in recent weeks on why the Chancellor offered £2 million to Eastbourne just days after its pier fire as opposed to Hastings following the devastating blaze on the pier inOctober 2010.
