Hastings Week was a runaway success

The Hastings Week Committee held its de-brief this week and looked back on a very successful week with more events, more participation and, with the fine weather, probably one of the best weeks yet.

My committee and I found it very gratifying to receive letters and emails acknowledging the hard work of ‘The Team’ including a letter of congratulation from our MP Amber Rudd and an email from New York where Reuters had syndicated footage of the Town Criers Competition.

I would like to thank all those that took part, those that attended the events to make them so successful, the behind-the-scenes help from Kevin Boorman and his department at the Town Hall and my committee, without whose help none of it would have been possible.

We are already planning next year’s event which will run from October 6 to 14, 2012, and are looking for participants – have a look at our web-site www.1066.net/hastings-week and please get in touch.
