|Hastings Pier in the distant background|
|I had left my footsteps on its wooden floorboards|
Please excuse the grainy photos. There were none of the digital thingamajig in those days, after all it was taken over 34 years ago. Yes, that was how long ago that I was in Hastings as a student in the Hastings College of Further Education studying for my A-levels. I have visited it again twice since then.
I hope the people concerned can restore the Pier but it would be hard to imagine it being possible considering almost 95% of it was destroyed by the fire.
