Praying for a snow-less 2011

I WAS surprised by Mr Wright’s letter complaining that Hastings roads were untreated, whilst Rothers were fine – thus Hastings should do more.

East Sussex County Council is responsible for snow clearance in both Rother and Hastings – they do seem to give Hastings more road works and less clearance.

Having said this, my wife had to drive from Eastbourne to Hastings last Friday and it took three hours, was a dreadful experience all the way to the Hastings border – when the roads had been cleared!

After a three-hour crawl, this was quite a relief.

Let us hope that with the massive cuts planned for local council spending next year, there is no snowfall.
