I love this time of year. Every thing is so green, spring has sprung, winter is over. It is time to celebrate Hastings does this better than most places. Jack In The Green. 5 days of celebration and welcoming in the new season. Culminating in the parade on bank holiday Monday. In the morning the Jack is released from the Fisherman's Museum on the seafront. Jack, the Gay Bogies, the lovely ladies, the giants, the drum and Morris dancing troupes, the sweeps parade through the old town and up on to the West hill.
Greening noses every where they went. Sitting in the sun, drinking a cold beer, catching up with friends, watching the Morris Dancing troupes doing their thing. Happy spring every one. Love Nora xxx
Nora has red hair and a big bum. She likes G&T, chocolate, cakes, clutter, aprons, Nana's, dancing badly and clapping out of time. Nora doesn't like sticky messes, and not being able to sing. She also regrets not being 6 foot tall or being able to do a piercing whistle. However Nora wants an end to poverty, hunger and suffering in the world brought about by the medium of sewing.
