Weather watchers needed!

Hastings Borough Council is looking for volunteer meteorologists to help with its weather readings.

“We are really proud that we operate our meteorology service,” explains Cllr Kim Forward, “which has been running for well over one hundred years. And we’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us!

“Our volunteer meteorologists collect weather data from different sites across Hastings every single day of the year – and full training will be given. We are looking to recruit to our small pool of volunteers, so we would only expect them to work one week in six or seven.

“Our volunteers will ensure that Hastings can continue to be recorded, regularly, as the sunniest and warmest place in the UK!”

Potential volunteers should contact Kevin Boorman on Hastings (01424) 451123, or by email at
