Work is under way to organise this year’s Hastings Old Town Carnival and to find the event’s next carnival queen.
Hastings Old Town Carnival Association held its first meeting of the year on January 21
Carnival Spokesman Ion Castro said “Planning has started in earnest; we have already agreed that date of next year’s carnival on Saturday, August 8 with the pram race on August 5.
“We are now seeking entries for the title Hastings Old Town Carnival Queen, Miss Hastings and her court.
“A selection evening will be Sunday, April 19 at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association and entry forms are on the official website – www.1066.net/carnival. For those not involved it may be difficult to understand the amount of planning an unpaid and dedicated band of volunteers puts into organising a carnival.”
