Families will be able to enjoy a Picnic in the Park event at Alexandra Park on Sunday August 23.

The event has been organised by local musician Pete Prescott to raise funds for St Michael’s Hospice.

The day promises to be full of entertainment and games, including a scavenger hunt, face painting and school sports activities such as the egg and spoon race.

There will also be a 50s and 60s themed fancy dress competition for adults and children, as well as a Rock ‘n’ Roll demonstration, plus much more.

Pete said: “I’ve organised the Picnic in the Park in aid of St Michael’s Hospice as they do such fantastic work for the people of Hastings and Rother and have cared for a number of people who were close to me.”

“We are absolutely delighted that Pete Prescott has decided to organise such a wonderful family day out in aid of the Hospice,” said Marcia Dart, from the hospice.

“Pete has been a loyal supporter of the Hospice for a number of years and we are always amazed at how much effort he puts into all his events, Picnic in the Park is no different - we can’t wait for the big day!”

Entry to the event is free with donations to St Michael’s Hospice.
