Kind-hearted folk a credit to Hastings

AT approximately 9.30pm on the evening of November 30, shortly after the first of the heavy snow, my wife and I were unfortunately involved in an accident in Old London Road when our car skidded on the untreated road and came to rest on a lamppost. Fortunately my wife and I were unhurt and neither were any other pedestrians, however we were in a mild state of shock following the event. Members of the public appeared, as if from nowhere, to ensure that we were unhurt and one couple (name and address unknown) offered us refreshment and even a bed for the night if required.

Another car driver, David Pickup, stopped to help and very kindly brought us home to Bexhill once we had sorted ourselves out.

Through your columns, would you pass on our grateful thanks to these good Samaritans who without hesitation helped us both during this traumatic event. It is good to know that despite all the doom and gloom reported by the press and the news channels, there are still many people around us that offer assistance whenever the need arises.
