Scene around – Hastings and St Leonards

Hastings Beer and Music Festival

Organised and run by volunteers from the local Round Table we noticed the banner saying the event has raised more than £1million for good causes over the years. Another successful event; great weather, great venue, great music and GREAT beer!

Friends of Conquest Summer Garden Fete

Hastings Mayor Nigel Sinden and his Deputy James Bacon are making sure they are getting around. They were in attendance at the Friends of Conquest Summer Garden Fete held at Markwick Gardens, St Leonards. There were loads of things to do and enjoy and the weather was perfect.

Deputy Mayor James said: “I met so many amazing people with a passion for our hospital and I even went home with some tombola prizes and more of a tan. My highlight was being able to have a practice on the Pom Poms with the Tornados Twirl-stars Hastings. ”

Hastings Museum and Art Gallery

New work by SoCo Artists (formerly South Coast Artists) is on display at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery from now until September 30th. The exhibition helps us understand where artists find their inspiration

Godfrey’s achievements

With councillors having to deal with seemingly endless rounds of cuts and spending constraints it’s the little things that make it all worthwhile. Veteran Hastings councillor Godfrey Daniel is pleased with two of his recent achievements; getting this postbox in Pelham Crescent repainted and looking so much better was a feather in his famous hat and he was delighted too to visit Hastings Library where he met up with old-friend and library volunteer Margaret Garrard to see the work of Sir Quentin Blake that now hangs in the children’s library.

PierJam

Saturday was not just the beer festival in Hastings it was PierJam too and it was great to see the pier full of people having a great time and enjoying their music. Our shot below was taken about 11pm and shows the pier, lights blazing and busy, just like a pier should be on a fine summer evening.
