I do not live in Hastings but knew Jeremy Birch from my work on ‘Robert Tressell’s Hastings’ and also with the University of Brighton in Hastings.
Jeremy was a great supporter of publicising Tressell events and the town’s most famous author’s link with the town and his socialist message.
He was also instrumental in enabling the university to set up in Hastings which has of course been of great cultural and economic benefit to his town.
A man who despite a hectic schedule seem to always have time to speak. A great Labour and Hastings man.
