Futurist: Make use of our old hospital

The final curtain of the Futurist will soon come down.

We do not have the best climate in the UK but we do have some of the best countryside, best beaches and best amenities.

There was something for all to enjoy, to remove the bad weather facilities can have a serious effect, whatever fills the vacuum will not last as long or give the same amount of fun and laughs as the Futurist.

As part of the tidying up campaign on the seafront, 200 yards from the Futurist stands an old disused convalescent hospital, a beautiful old building which has stood empty for over 30 years. With all the problems in the NHS with bed blocking and A&E under severe pressure surely an establishment in such an ideal position could be put to some use.
