French have best roundabouts

PLEASE, please encourage Hastings Borough Council (HBC) to upgrade the Pelham roundabout with something that will fit in with Hastings as a fishing town.

A fishing boat perhaps surrounded with an attractive flower display may not be very original but the way it is displayed will make a world of difference to that area.

What is needed is something bright - not aluminium - to catch the tourists’ eyes.

If HBC is unaware how interesting roundabouts can be I suggest a day trip to Calais or Boulogne. All French roundabouts have a theme that is central to the town or area and are very colourful.

While the council is updating roundabouts perhaps it could look at the mess that is Ravenside roundabout or does that one come under Rother district?
