    I remember this beautiful town centre clock from my childhood in Hastings. Plummers, the department store stood opposite. It's now a Debenhams. When was the clock demolished? I remember Mastins, another department store just along the road. I think an Iceland store now stands on the site. I remember my Mother going to Mastins and bringing items home to try on in one's own home on what was known then as ' On Appro '. One took back what one didn't want to keep. Can you imagine any store doing that nowadays?

    I remember shopping at Plummer Roddis with my Grandmother. She would wander into the shop with a little basket and one of the assistants would fetch her a chair while she chatted to the assistants in such a leisurely
    manner....really gracious shopping!

    My mother worked at Plummers in the 1950’s and loved it. Proper old school personal service retail. As Marianne said - gracious and professional.

    I have similar memories of Plummer Roddis and Mastins. I seem to remember the Memorial being blown up by vandals, probably in the early 1970s, and it was never rebuilt.
