I AM writing concerning your article We Love Our Town, on the front of the Observer dated December 31.
I read it with a smile on my face and totally agreed with the article - it was brilliant.
Yes we have had some bad press and some negative things happen but when things do go wrong it’s the ability to overcome them that is our greatest feat.
And I believe Hastings as a town is great in bouncing back through the support of each other. There will always be things that are sad, bad and negative but equally there will be things that are happy, good and positive, and I’m in full support of getting the word out there and talking up Hastings.
There are so many people out there with hidden talents or abilities, but maybe don’t have the confidence to do anything about it, or people maybe wanting to change their lives for the better, this could be an opportunity for them to make a difference and tell Hastings all about it. I’m proud of Hastings and would be proud to help out in anyway I can to talk up our town and bring the positivity back into the town.
Happy New Year 2011 to all at the Observer.
