Could I get my money back?

I have been following with interest the recent correspondence relating to cycling in Alexandra Park.

Jan Avery’s comments about the park inspector certainly brought back memories.

In 1959, at the age of 12, I was fined 10/6d (52½p) at Hastings Juvenile Court for riding my bike at the top end of the park near Buckshole reservoir.

It occurs to me that if the by-law is to be removed then it might be a nice gesture if I were to have my money back!
