Kids Go Nuts in Summerfield Woods
In 1966 the Council declared that the 14th October would be 'HASTINGS DAY' to mark the Battle of Hastings 1066. By the 1980s it had become a week long celebration of community based events culminating in a spectacular Torchlight Procession, bonfire and fireworks display. Hasting's 'Green areas' are open to all during the week. The Rangers and Hastings Museum organised a family event in Summerfields Woods; making environmental art and learning about the wildlife and history of the woods. I made the owl, Chris made the Green Man and Brendan age 4 made The Creature. Woodland sculpture by Joc Hare.
