Hastings Direct to sponsor Bexhill Carnival for third year running

15 Feb 2015

Insurance broker, Hastings Direct will be the lead sponsor of this year's Bexhill Carnival for the third year running.

Last year over 35,000 local residents participated in the events of Bexhill Carnival week with over 45 floats fielded in its grand finale — the carnival procession. Organisers are optimistic that this year's Carnival will be even bigger and better as last year"s event did not include any schools and four local schools have already registered to be part of this year's procession.

This year's carnival week will be held from Saturday July 18th to Saturday July 25th and the theme is "Superheroes & Villains", which the organisers hope will be reflected throughout the celebrations.

Gary Hoffman, CEO, Hastings: "As Bexhill's largest employer, we are proud to be sponsoring such a prestigious and fun event. Our staff and their families were really supportive of last year"s events, being part of It's a Knockout, assisting as marshalls, as well as leading the carnival procession with our float."

Nim Whitmarsh, Chair of Bexhill Carnival: "We would like to thank Hastings Direct for its continued sponsorship and volunteer support that its staff donate in helping us to man and stage many of the Carnival events. We expect to have another busy year with some big highlights especially for Party in the Park. We are still looking for co-sponsors to try and keep carnival week free for the community, so please get in touch via email eventsteam@bexhillcarnival.co.uk to see how you can help in 2015."
