Jack-in-the-Green festival May 4th to May 7th 2012

Here’s to a wonderful summer

Hastings was blessed with excellent weather over the May Day weekend which helped bring the spirit of summer to this years Jack in the Green festival. There was a fantastic turnout on the Monday and the cheering as the procession went though the Old Town and West Hill made the long slog up Croft Road worth every step.

We would like to thank everyone who lent a hand to help make things happen, and would like to extend a special thank you to the seemingly endless support from Kevin Boorman and Hastings Borough Council; their invaluable contribution is much appreciated.

Finally we send out a big thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed the celebrations over the weekend. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as do: see you all again next year.
