Hot-foot it to bonfire dance

AN evening of dancing will be held next month to raise funds for the annual bonfire festivities.

Hastings Borough Bonfire Society (HBBS) is hosting the event on Friday, March 2, upstairs at The Carlisle pub from 7.30pm.

The bonfire on the beach and the grand fireworks display each year in Hastings Week is organised by volunteers who need to raise more than £16,000 each year to make it happen. The dance will be a ceilidh with the Sugarloaf Band playing. Tickets cost £5 per person or a family ticket (two adults and kids under 16) is £12. There will be a raffle and bonfire t-shirts available. More details are on the HBBS website at
