HASTINGS has been well-received at an overseas show with a stand netting many visitors.
The Oostende voor Anker exhibition, held on the quayside of the Belgian port, saw Old Towners Tush and Pat Hamilton answer questions about the town.
The pair, well-known for their fisherman’s rolls, took along their collection of historic ship models and Tush also wowed the crowds by making nets. There was also a collection of ‘ships in bottles’ by local man Bob Arrowsmith.
Kevin Boorman, head of marketing at Hastings Borough Council, said: “It was great to see so many people at the Hastings stand.”
