Art has no link with our town

I TOTALLY agree that Jerwood was and always will be another massive mistake.

Throughout the planning process the people of Hastings advised the council that to go ahead with this project would actually become a white elephant.

How right we have proven to be. The art or more to the point the rubbish that so far has been displayed has had no actual

bearing on what our town is about.

I have seen much better work displayed at the Arts Forum. So why wasn’t the forum encouraged to exhibit nearer to the centre of town? An investment in it by perhaps subsiding a premises to allow our local talent to display the forum’s works would have saved us many thousands of pounds.

Now our council is considering allowing another piece of rubbish of which I refer to a helter skelter where the fountain is. Will it never learn?
