Cuts mean Lower Park Road will be ungritted in the snow

I CONGRATULATE the Observer, belatedly, on its New Year’s Eve edition front page, and the campaign set up to support Hastings.

The paper is right to say there will be difficult times ahead and any help the Observer can give to support the local community, particularly by showcasing all of the positive activity that is going on I know is greatly appreciated.
