Sun Lounge St Leonards-on-Sea – deckchair fire 1978

Phil Gill… Didn’t think 1978 was that hot.

Wendy Weaver… When I first came down here in 1979 there were deckchairs lined up along the prom every morning. They were packed up every evening and many mornings I would get into the office to see a pile of burned deckchairs Yobbos used to pour lighter fuel onto the canvas and set light to it. They would be in their 50s now, I wonder if they still feel proud of what they did?

Kevin Carlyon… Days there were deckchairs

Dan Mcdonald… In all honesty I think The Conquest accident and emergency department of the day were a bit pleased as the times I’ve done myself an injury on those things in the past lol
