ON December 13 Hastings Central Townswomen’s Guild met to enjoy a Christmas tea provided by the committee, and social get-together to end the 2013 year, exchanging cards and having a gift from Santa’s sack.
After tea, members were told they had been successful, obtaining a small grant from Hastings Borough Council.
The grant will pay half the cost of a limited number of coach outings during 2014. These outings will be to places, often too difficult to visit by public transport or without a car.
Members were delighted by the news and wanted to thank the council for its help and are looking forward to an interesting new year.
The guild meets on the fourth Friday of the month at the Unitarian Church, South Terrace at 2.30pm. Our next meeting (weather permitting) will be on January 24, 2014. All visitors are welcome.
