Saving our legendary lifeboat (I)

Having played a central role in the rescuing of those at peril on the sea, now it is Hasting’s turn to save our legendary lifeboat, the ‘Cyril and Lilian Bishop’. St Mary in the Castle hosts The Ghost of Dunkirk, a film and music event supporting the campaign to restore this former Hastings lifeboat to her original state. The programme features live music from Jiggery Pokery, including a song written for the occasion, along with The Salts, RX Shanty Men, Harmony One and Now and Then. Chandra Masoliver reports.

Seaview choir caps successful concert

Seaview’s hugely enjoyable carol concert in St John the Evangelist Church last Saturday was supported by Sound Waves Community Choir and a cappella group, Now and Then and ended with a performance by Seaview’s own choir. The event proved a successful fundraiser, bringing in donations of £774 from a record crowd, estimated at 200 plus. The tally for the Big Sleep in September is still under way, but has so far reached more than £25,000. As public funding dwindles, Seaview is increasingly reliant on its own resources to raise the vital funds for its invaluable work with homeless, vulnerable and distressed people. Nick Terdre writes.

A splendid time was guaranteed for all

It’s only a teenager, now in its 15th year, but Beatles Day has grown into a massive event. Last Sunday saw some 70 acts and 350 performers – 95% of the bands are from Hastings – divided between the main stage and the more intimate downstairs space of the White Rock Hotel. Nick Terdre enjoyed the show.
