Hastings and St Leonards was buzzing today.
There was a huge focus around Warrior Square where the St Leonards festival had it’s base and the promenade opposite the square and stretching along towards the pier was full of colourful characters, dancers and performers.
Proving that special events aren’t needed to make our town a fun and vibrant place the beach and the sea were busy with revellers too all enjoying the day as the temperature nudged ever closer to 30 degrees.
From sunbathers and swimmers to canoeists and sailors and not forgetting those just walking while taking in the sights and the sounds it was a day to celebrate the beauty of the place where we live.
Here are a few photographs that capture the beaches of our town around 2pm today and show just how busy it was.
