LETTER: I have support of the majority

I just wanted to say a very big thank you to the Herald and its readers for the Special Recognition Award at the Eastbourne Achievers Awards 2016.

It means so much to me to receive this award, and it feels like all the hard work I am putting in to making Eastbourne Pier special has been acknowledged.

I have always known that the majority of people in town support me – it has only ever been a small minority who have complained.

I am working seven days a week for this town, and again I must thank everyone who make this special award possible.

It is something I will treasure for years to come.
