Over the weekend of the 20th & 21st May there was an excellent display of what Bexhill has to offer residents and visitors.
On the Saturday we had the very first Bexhill Showcase (partly supported by Bexhill Town Council) featuring over twenty voluntary groups and charities, together with our security and safety services, displaying what they do, how they do it, and what the residents of Bexhill can do to help them. This was a good opportunity to meet those groups who maybe you would like to support in some way, whether it is for a few hours a week or perhaps supporting in some financial way. The list of groups involved included:-
Bexhill Breathers - Bexhill Family Collective - Bexhill Heritage - Bexhill Jazz Club - Bexhill Lions - Bexhill Museum - Bexhill Street Pastors - Bexhill Town Council - Blue Cross first aid - CAP (Christians against Poverty) - Community Supporters - East Sussex Fire & Rescue - Footbridge Project - Girlguiding Bexhill - Guide Dogs for the Blind (Little Common branch) - HM Coastguards - Homecall - Jesus Loves Bexhill - Raystede Animal Welfare - Rother Voluntary Action - Royal British Legion - St John's Church - ALPHA Course - Women's Institute
There were activities for the children, and much to see and take in. A very worthwhile series of displays and information. Then there was: -
|Practically non-stop music and entertainment from individual ‘crooners’, ukulele groups, poetry reading, brass band, folk bands, a troop of 35 youngsters performing dance. Saturday and Sunday kicked off with the Royal British Legion Concert Band, then on the Saturday, after the official opening of the Bexhill Showcase with Geoff Tompkins (organiser of both events), Michael Ensor of St John’s and the ALPHA Course display, Claire Prime of Homecall and Guy Partidge of CAP, we were treated by Amanda Lacey and 35 of her youngsters performing a musical dance with acrobatics no less.|
More entertainment throughout the day with: - The FOG - Kevin Terrell (Macmillan Busker) - Shady Ladies - Claire Baldry - Albatross Ukulele Band - The Other Band - Unstable Cliffs, with The Kukes ending a superb day.
