Jet Set in Hastings: annual meet up
Extensive bike locking facility at Tonbridge Station
For this year's annual Jet Set reunion we have chosen to come back to Hastings – St Leonards. The Jet Set refers to a group of friends who met at Manchester University in the second half of the 1960s. 'Jet Set' was always a rather ironic title and now 50 years later it is even more ironic – the chance of any hell raising is now probably officially zero. Indeed there was some confusion as it whether we had been to Hastings before even though this was in May 2015 and we are staying in the same hotel (Royal Victoria) ....... and drinking in the same pub – the recommended Horse & Groom.
Today was a brilliant sunny day with the sea flat calm. The forecast for tomorrow is cooler.....
Love St. Leonards mural
The renovated Hastings Pier
Hastings Pier has now been attractively renovated. It is now a delight to visit where before it was a sad burnt out wreck.
