Town doesn’t end at the the pier

I READ the excellent letters about St Leonards with interest. Some time ago in the Hastings Information Centre I asked for a local map, and was appalled to see the town apparently ending at the pier.

When I expressed dismay and asked the tourist information officer why this was, she responded ‘well why would anyone want to go to St Leonards? I certainly told her why. I gather the map about to be printed does acknowledge the existence of St Leonards. But for the time we apparently haven’t existed here, can we have a council tax refund?
