It is with great sadness that we have to report on the passing of two of our greatest supporters, Iona "Babs" Muggridge our President and Secretary on 19th Feb 2006 and Ray Hafseth, former treasurer and Vice President on 26th January 2006. Shown here in 2002. Both worked tirelessly to ensure that the carnival was the great success that we have all come to expect.

New Committee


The Hastings Old Town Carnival AGM was held on Sunday 20th November at the East Hastings Angling Club. John Muggridge was elected to the chair with Bob Morgan as deputy, Life President Babs Muggridge was also elected as secretary, Diane Sherwood was relected treasurer.

The new committee including the new faces immediately got to work and Carnival Day was set for Saturday 12th August 2006, with an open theme. A very full discussion followed and the Carnival route for 2006 was agreed - the shorter route, from the Fishmarket following the normal traffic flow along the seafront to the fountain, return along the seafront, up High Street, across The Bourne and back to Rock-a-nore via All Saints Street. The starting time will be 5pm from Rock-a-nore.

Planning for the 2006 Carnival started with the first meeting on Wednesday January 18th 2006 at the East Hastings Angling Club - if you missed the AGM and want to help please come along and join the committee meetings are every third Wednesday - we can never get enough helpers!
