Christmas Went Global

Christmas 2011

There was no dashing through the snow this year to get to this event and some 200 of you made it and it was great! The event was declared open at 6.15pm by the Mayor Kim Forward, Leader of the Council Jeremy Birch and Amber Rudd our local MP. A selection of party games followed and the young at heart and the young in years joined in with gusto and good fun.

Hastings Got Culture 2011


St Leonards Concordia Hall filled with excited young people from Nepal to Zimbabwe to India to Libya to Congo to Bexhill and Hastings - we had a great time entertaining each other and building friendships across difference. Local singing star Ian Edwards not only entertained us very professionally, but also headed the judges for the Talent Competition and managed the PA system for all the competitors!

CRUTCHES TO SIERRA LEONE - raffle helps cover transport costs

I just wanted to write and say thank you to Hastings and District Interfaith Forum and Partners for your support of The Peace Project and Operation Rise, it is very much appreciated. We are now well on our way to getting the Hastings crutches to Sierra Leone, which the raffle money (£148) is going towards, they have been fully cleaned and are ready to be packed and shipped, and I have attached a photo.

It was a pleasure to work with you all and I'm sure the Global Village Fete will be a great success next summer.

Please pass on my best wishes to everyone in the Forum and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Very best wishes, Sarah West (Operation Rise)
