Away with the doom merchants

OH DEAR! Why are there so many Moaning Minnies filling the letters pages of the Herald?

Now Sam Reid (April 22) tells us that “Eastbourne is dying on its feet”.

Try telling that to the tens of thousands of visitors over this Easter weekend.

They, along with many residents, have packed our beaches, spent their money in our hotels, restaurants and stores and no doubt gone home wishing they lived in our beautiful, welcoming and well-run resort.

Yes, there is room for improvement but I can’t think of a more pleasant town to live in, and I have visited many in the UK and abroad.

Away with you, doom merchants - the glass is more than half-full!
