Hastings Emergency Services Appreciation Day

June 24, 2017, 11:00am

The Stables Theatre and Arts Centre

In light of the many terrible events in London and Manchester, we're hosting a community BBQ, a silent auction, table sale and hopefully (!) some live music in honour of all local emergency service workers. Money raised will go towards Mind (who provide mental health support for Emergency Services staff through their Blue Light Programme). All emergency service workers will be entitled to a free burger/hotdog and can of drink when they present their ID on the day. Additional food supplies, auction lots - and bric-a-brac for the table sale - would be very much appreciated - please email volunteers@stablestheatre.co.uk We feel this is a chance for us all to gather together as a community to say a big thank you to those who help us - and raise money for this excellent cause at the same time. PLEASE SHARE!!

Hastings ILB was requested to launch at 00:26 this morning following reports of a missing person thought to have fallen from the cliffs at Ecclesbourne Glen.

Police officers and Hastings Coastguard Rescue team confirmed that they were in visual contact with the casualty on the beach but were unable to reach them. The ILB and her volunteer crew were quickly on scene while the the local Coastguard team also made their way along the beach.
The casualty was assessed and despite falling 10 –15 feet was found to have sustained only a minor injury. It was therefore decided to walk the casualty off of the beach, after which she was passed to the care of the ambulance service.
The ILB then returned to station.
