Step forward for annual charity pier-to-pier walk

KEEN walkers are invited to take part in an upcoming charity trek.

Lord Brett’s 8th Annual Pier Walk will take place on Sunday, July 3 and will be officially launched by Baroness Janet Fookes of Plymouth DBE.

The 16.8mile trek starts at Hastings Pier and finishes at Eastbourne Pier and those wanting to take part should be at the starting line at 10.45am.

Entry and sponsor forms will be available at or can be collected from the Hastings Information Centre or the Bexhill Observer office in Sackville Road. This year’s benefactors include St Michael’s Hospice, Stroke Association Relatives And Helpers and Saxon Mount School’s Memory Garden Fund.

This year’s theme will be based on pirates, vicars and tarts although fancy dress is optional. Further information is available by emailing, texting 07838 241222 or visiting
