Hastings Bonfire Boy Edward Hart went down on one knee to propose to his love Pip Pook during the recent bonfire celebrations.

It was a fitting gesture as the couple met on the fire site during bonfire and had their first kiss on the fire site. Hastings Bonfire Society chairman Heather Leech said: “This was the Society’s best kept secret, as well as keeping the effigy unknown. Our fireworks crew Renegade Pyrotechnics made a special fiery banner for Ed, which said ‘Marry Me’. We had arranged for Pip’s family to be on the fire site too so it was a wonderful family occasion for a much loved Hastings Bonfire couple. We were delighted to be integral in such a fantastic personal event within our amazing town’s celebrations.”
