Thanks Hastings for wonderful work experience week

May I, through the letters page of your newspaper, thank all the Hastings people involved in providing a successful fortnight’s work experience for our young German students at the end of January.

This co-operation was greatly appreciated, and special thanks should go to Mr Pickard-Jackson, of Filsham Valley, for setting the whole project up, and to local firms WHS, Marks and Spencer and Stamco, and Silverdale and Christchurch primary schools, for sparing the time to take them on.

The Frida-Levy Comprehensive school in Essen, Germany, has long had special links to Hastings, using local host families for language courses and cultural visits, and this latest example of local hospitality can only serve to strengthen still further this connection.

Thank you Hastings, we will be back!
