When I visited Hasting and need information about mechanic garage opened on weekend, the lady at the centre tried really hard to help me to give directions and options, appreciated. The location in the city centre with full of information and local knowledge make this service really helpful for visitors when visiting Hasting, well done.

WE got a little bit lost so we found the Big I which was well signposted on the highway. We asked our questions and received knowledgeable replies and ideas. The staff were helpful and pleasant. Its well the effort to call in. Its surprising how many options you will be told about that you didn't know about.
