Hastings & St. Leonards on-line community newspaper

Wanted: cherubs, socks, pet food and punters!

Meet the market organiser for St Leonards Marketplace, Anton Burton, shown in the centre of the photo above. Last year, Anton ran three successful markets for St Leonards’ Town Team – one on the day of St Leonards Festival along Kings Road, and two pre-Christmas markets in Crystal Square car park. This year, the first of our regular weekly markets will be on Saturday 19 April – Easter Saturday – in Crystal Square car park. Each week there will be themed entertainment, thanks to a Community First grant. HOT’s Erica Smith wanted to know what Anton has lined up for us when the market re-opens this Spring.

A lull between storms

The past few weeks haven’t been much fun, weatherwise.  Those of you living outside the UK may have seen the odd snap of people wading through waist-high waters in their living-rooms, writes Antony Mair.

United v Merstham - players waiting

Two Points Unnecessarily Lost

A big hand to Simon Rudkins, the phenomenal groundsman of The U’s, whose hard work allowed the pitch to pass the inspection at 11am. United had lost 2-0 to Merstham earlier this season, but with 9 places and 20 points separating the two sides, United were favourites to walk away with three points, regardless of their current form. Frankie Sawyer makes his first start at the Pilot Field since returning last week and is re-joined by Trevor McCreadie, who has been recovering from a knock he suffered a couple of weeks ago. Liam Willis was at the Pilot Field to report the action.
