Blacklands wasn’t left in the dark yesterday evening (Friday) as Paul and Rosina Brockington unveiled their magical Winter Wonderland to over a hundred local residents.

Throughout November Paul and Rosina, with the help of Rosina’s brother Mark, have been busy transforming their front garden at 35 Helen’s Park Road, Hastings, into a winter wonderland in aid of St Michael’s Hospice. Over the last two years the lights have raised over £4000 for the hospice.

The scene features waterfalls, swans, penguins and snowmen, and has over 22,000 lights.

People are being encouraged to pay a visit and then make a donation, which will go directly to the hospice in the New Year.

The couple would like to thank Melodian’s Choir, Renegade Pyrotechnics, Absolute Scaffolding, Hastings Round Table and Hastings Miniature Railway for all of their support.

The lights will be turned on every night from 5pm until the 2nd of January.
