Pub open for runners

IT’S that time of year again, the Hastings half-marathon, an event that St Leonards embraces.

So as usual I would like to remind all the runners that I open my pub to them, use it to get changed, fill your water bottles and of course use my loos! I will have my charity pots out for those with a bit of spare change for the use of the loo, but it’s not compulsory.

I have for the last 10 years extended this offer and it’s always been well-received. I personally look forward to the day, great atmosphere, and everyone is very supportive of the runners. A real community event. An event the Lions should be proud of. Eric Hardwick, we salute you.

Let’s hope the weather improves.
