Why was tourist centre closed?

FURTHER to Sam Reid’s excellent letter last week (Eastbourne is dying on its feet), why was the Tourist Information Centre closed for three of the four days over Easter? With thousands of visitors pouring into the town surely this is precisely the time when information is most needed.

If the information office isn’t open on the town’s busiest days of the year what is it there for?

I presume borough council indifference and incompetence are yet again to blame. Talking of which, how much longer is the Congress Theatre going to be shrouded in scaffolding? What an eyesore and what a cost to council taxpayers.
