Public response restores faith

ON behalf of the rector and church officers at Church-in-the-Wood in Hollington, I’d like to thank the Observer, especially Hannah Collisson, for reporting so sympathetically the theft of garden equipment from the church.

Because of this report we have been offered gifts of equipment and money from readers.

This only goes to show that for every ‘wrong-doer’ in the Hastings area there are many many more on the other side of society. Thanks greatly to all.

TERRY MULQUEEN
