LETTER: Moving look at ordinary folk

I’m sorry that Mr Goldsmith found the past two exhibitions at the Pavilion “uninspiring and unengaging”. Actually, my experience was the exact opposite! I understand that both were popular and I personally felt that they both gave an interesting, and quite moving, insight into the lives of people who formerly lived in our area, in two widely separated periods of past centuries. History tells us all about kings and queens, battles lost and won; these exhibitions gave us a well presented glimpse of the challenges faced by ordinary people – people like ourselves – and left one keen to know still more about them. I look forward to something similar next year. I hope that the museum project could be followed up in future as a good museum would be of benefit to Eastbourne and an additional amenity for visitors.
