Me and my wife are looking to move out of London. We would like to be near the sea and after looking at property prices in Hastings it could be a contender. Anyone here live in or near Hastings? If so what is it like. Does it have work (I'm currently a manager for a waste management firm but am looking to cut out the stress and move away from management. I have a Bus licence so I could drive for a local bus operator, my wife works in Insurance at present but could work in other areas) Is the area still thriving or is it on a downturn? What areas in & around Hastings are decent areas and what areas are not so good etc. We are both in our mid 50's by the way.
