Everyone was so kind to me

This letter is by way of a HUGE thank-you to the very kind and thoughtful people of Bexhill and especially those in and around the Sovereign Light Cafe.

Last Friday, after a walk along the prom, my wife and I sat and had a cup of tea.

I then collapsed twice in quick succession and some very kind and helpful people came to our aid.

Mrs Keane called the emergency services and relayed information to the paramedics who responded very quickly; thanks to all their first aid and helpfulness in Bexhill and back in Eastbourne at the DGH, I have recovered.

My thanks also to the very kind lady who propped me up till the ambulance arrived, and her husband too.
