College’s party in the park

SCHOOL leavers are being invited to meet their future college classmates at a barbecue in Alexandra Park.

Sussex Coast College Hastings is hosting the event for those who have applied to study there in September, which is on Tuesday (August 16) from 11am to 3pm.

Kate Jackson, organiser, said: “It’s a chance to meet new classmates, socialise and enjoy food, music and games. It gives new students a chance to ask any questions and make friends before terms start in September.

Local band Stage Fright, who won Best Band at the Hastings Musical Festival, will be playing at the bandstand and there will also be street games, as well as the barbecue.

The first 500 to sign up online at will get a free burger.

SCCH in the Park is a no alcohol event. Dogs are not allowed.
