Hastings lucky to have new gallery

Share this article

THE Jerwood Foundation provides funding for the arts at every level and reading your letters page it doesn’t appear that readers whose letters were published last week understand our good fortune.

Jerwood has spent more in Hastings than on any other project in its 30-year history. And it could easily have gone elsewhere.

Perhaps once objectors have visited the gallery and seen the beauty of the building and the wonderful collection it houses, they will find their opinions have changed. I really hope so.

Those expressing outrage at the cost of the entrance fee should try taking their kids to the aquarium.

The prices there must be unaffordable for the majority of Hastings families yet I have never seen anyone protesting about it.
