We have lived in Hastings for longer than we have lived anywhere. For us it is still the place we call home despite living in other parts of Europe for long periods of time. My background is in engineering Teresa's is organisation and administration. Dawn who is our local representative lives in Hastings and will organise everything on your arrival. Dawn is also a very good source of local information. One place we would definitely recommend is Porters wine bar ( (website hidden) ) in the High street where I believe it is still possible to see world renowned jazz singer/pianist Lianne Carroll ...for free.
