Police appeal for witnesses to cash snatch in Hastings

Police are searching for a thief who snatched cash from a man who had just withdrawn it from a cash machine in Hastings.

Just after 12.35pm on Friday 8 June the 65-year-old victim, a local man, withdrew £100 cash from a cashpoint outside the Natwest Bank in Havelock Road, Hastings. As he held the cash and was about to put it away, a man described as white, in his 20’s, of slim build, with short mousy brown hair and wearing jeans, ran past, grabbed the money out of his hand and ran off towards Robertson Street.

Investigator Mel Straw said; “The victim in this case is personally very vulnerable, and had also just come out of hospital after treatment for a leg injury.

“He was not attacked or injured during the incident but was badly distressed by what happened.

“If you saw what happened or think you know who was responsible, please contact us on 101, quoting serial 602 of 08/06.

“You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Pett Village Gardens – A Message from Chris Hutt

‘Over the weekend of 23/24 June one of the most successful charitable fundraising events in the history of Pett was held.

Pett Village Gardens raised a total of £7090.55 for charity. The National Gardens Scheme (NGS), which supports traditional nursing charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie, received £5672.44. Pett Village Hall, which provides car parking and toilet facilities for the event, received £1418.11.

652 visitors came to Pett Village Gardens. They consumed 35 gallons of tea, 40 homemade cakes baked in the village and in Fairlight, and bought 500 plants to take home.

4 gardens took part in this exciting new event, 3 of them opening for the NGS for the first time: Ambleside, Breanross, and French Court Farm. Owners Jackie and Dave Richards, Libby and Tim Rothwell, and Suzie Gibbons and Guy worked tirelessly to ensure their gardens were looking beautiful for the event. They all drew praise from Irene Eltringham Wilson, NGS county organiser, who visited the event on Sunday.

The fourth garden, Fairlight End, home of Chris and Robin Hutt, has opened for NGS for several years. Chris said, ‘Robin and I were delighted to be joined by 3 new partners this year. Visitors could be seen strolling happily through the village and round the gardens for the whole weekend. There’s no doubt the new gardens, together with beautiful weather, boosted visitor numbers beyond what we could ever achieve as a single garden. And on behalf of all the garden owners I’d like to thank all our helpers and supporters, not least the army of village bakers who come up with the excellent cakes which are devoured by the visitors.’
