It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the death

of the Fairlight Eye.

Fairlight Eye - dead

This iconic landmark, which has played such a significant role in making Fairlight, E.Sussex into the must-visit tourist destination status that it enjoys today, was destroyed by heavy winds last night.

In my role as ninja sculpture doctor (untrained with no qualifications at all), I call death at, more or less, early this morning.

There is some hope for the resurrection of the Fairlight Eye, I say this in my role as a plastic surgeon, but I fear that this just might not be possible.

There might or might not be a memorial service at the Hastings recycling plant later in the month. This will depend on whether I can stay awake when I operate later today. I’ll keep interested parties informed.

    Difficult to get to grips with. But I’m trying.

    A national tragedy.

    I’m thinking of having that on my tombstone.
