Jack-in-the-Green presentation

ORGANISERS of Jack-in-the-Green have thanked two big supporters with awards.

Mike Bigg, of the First in Last Out, and Kevin Boorman, the council’s marketing manager, were presented with the accolades for offering financial, practical and moral support for the annual event.

Keith Leech, chairman of Jack-in-the-Green, said: “These two people have given over and above in terms of time and energy and deserve more than just our thanks. It’s what makes Hastings so unique that different parts of the community are prepared to work together to make events like Jack-in-the-Green work. Without people like these Hastings would be a much poorer place.” The Jack-in-the-Green committee has launched a competition for a design for next year’s t-shirt. It is interested in designs from anybody in the community. Email chairman@hastingsjack.co.uk for details of how to submit.
