Hastings is great

I CONSIDER Darrol Skinner’s letter (Observer January 7) an insult to the thousands of people who organise, support and clearly enjoy many events and aspects of life in our town.

Was he asleep throughout events such as Hastings Half Marathon, Jack-in-the-Green, Proms in the Park, Hastings Music & Beer Festival, Pirate Day, Old Town Week and Carnival, The Seafood and Wine Festival and Hastings Bonfire Celebrations, to name but a few? Hastings is blessed with its unique Old Town, fascinating history, beautiful scenery and amazing character.

Above all, a town is its people and Hastings has an abundance of ‘vibrant and brilliant’ people living and loving life to the full.
