“C.J. Jackson, principal and chief executive of the Billingsgate Seafood School, and star of Sunday Brunch, and our own Tush and Pat Hamilton, gave talks and demonstrations over the weekend, and were extremely popular. There was a wide selection of other stalls selling some fantastic local food and drink, and some superb music too, performed by local musicians.

“The weather was glorious, and it was a great chance to showcase our local Hastings Fish brand, and so much more. I am pleased it was enjoyed by so many people.”
