It was with profound sadness that I read of John’s death.
The Old Town has lost one of the best councillors it has had.
The Old Hastings Preservation Society and many involved in local history have lost a friend who had a common interest.
John shared his knowledge and was always willing to discuss, listen and equally important as a councillor, act on matters of concern.
We are grateful for all he has achieved though hard work as councillor and Foreshore Trust chairman, it is a good legacy to build on.
We send condolences to his family and colleagues at Hastings Borough Council.
