A GREAT time was had by all at Alexandra Park at a summer event that was the fourth of its kind.

Day @ the Park on Saturday, September 1 featured a mixture of events and attractions including a funfair, bandstand music, pop-up cafes, craft market and children’s entertainment.

The vintage tearoom went down a treat, and a range of food was on offer including the locally produced.

Organiser Louise Kelleher said: “We really had a great day and the feedback has been excellent. We’re very grateful to all who helped make it such a success, including Happy Harold the trolleybus who provided transport.

“Also to three of our bravest local councillors who got wet sponges in the face (and elsewhere) for charity, and those lovely people at Hastings Borough Council’s Play Department who provided free children’s craft activities”.

A free event, it was very well-attended with highlights included a jam and baked goods competition, judged by a team of storm troopers.

There was also a packed programme of music, with Sand Rabbit headlining, and a performance by The Broadcasters, four 13-year-old school friends who wowed the audience with their indie/ska tunes.

Louise said: “They were fabulous, they rocked the place, when people found out they were only 13 they were astounded.”

Hinting at things to come from the team behind eat @ The Park Café she added: “We’re working hard on making next year’s events even bigger and better and maybe next summer we’ll see a Day & Night @ the Park.”
