Don’t axe service to make savings

HASTINGS Borough Council has monitored and recorded the weather data for Hastings for well over 100 years. It appears that it is now considering ceasing the recording of this data because of expenditure cutbacks.

I understand that all councils are under pressure to make cuts but if such recording ceases then this data is lost forever.

At a time of apparent climate change with the associated potential rise in sea level it seems to me to be to be important to continue gathering this information.

May I suggest that anyone who agrees contacts Kevin Boorman at Hastings Borough Council immediately to express their concern as I believe the matter is to be discussed and decided very soon.
