As I walked home at 5am on Sunday from a busy shift, it struck me that while Hastings has some truly great events such as Hastings Old Town with all its activities, carnival processions and bonfire night (to name but a few), there are some unsung heroes whom we should all thank.
I refer to the street cleaning department who work tirelessly to ensure that the only trace of the evening before was the fantastic memories and not the rubbish that littered our streets. This was my third bonfire night in Hastings. I walked home through a mountain of chip papers and woke to a clean and fresh town centre. Well done, guys!
