A series of retro-style posters have been launched to promote tourism in Hastings and St Leonards.

Mayor Bruce Dowling was overjoyed to see the large posters at Charing Cross station in London.

They are part of a joint campaign between Hastings and St Leonards Tourism Association and Hastings Borough Council to promote the town.

Councillor Dowling said: “It was great to see these posters at Charing Cross, there were eight on one of the main thoroughfares between the station concourse and The Strand, so they will be seen by many tens of thousands of passengers every day. These posters make the point that while other seaside resorts might have closed for the winter, there is still loads going on here in Hastings.

“We do like to work in partnership, and I think It’s really good that the Hastings and St Leonards Tourism Association are paying half the cost of this campaign. We are especially grateful to the National Railway Museum for allowing our graphic designer to adapt this classic 1950s British Railways poster and bring it right up to date.”
