LETTER: Free parking on seafront

Why is it when you visit Eastbourne at this time of year to walk on their marvellous peloton free and clean promenade, all the parking bays up towards Meads are covered to allow free parking until next Easter?

And then on Bexhill sea front there is free parking too, all year round. Splendid.

The only bit of free parking on the Hastings seafront is the Grosvenor Gardens trailer park.

All the seafront car parks are quite expensive. Do we have to be so mercenary to our casual visitors at this time of the year? Answers on a postcard...
