Here comes summer

It was definitely a case of Flaming June last Sunday as Bexhill basked in warm sunshine and crowds flocked to the town and beaches to enjoy what’s hoped to be the start of a long hot summer.

After weeks of torrential rain and storms during the winter, Sunday’s glorious weather was a welcome respite.

Hundreds were out and about picnicking in the park, strolling on the prom, sunbathing, riding bikes, and enjoying beach barbecues along Bexhill’s spectacular coastline.

Cafes were doing a roaring trade with people queuing up at the many local haunts including the Old Bathing Hut and the Sovereign Light cafe, partaking of ice creams, sandwiches and afternoon tea and cakes.

The month long Bexhill Festival of Music continued over the weekend with various events throughout the town and No.48 Devonshire Road drew both local residents and visitors to listen to the live music on offer.

On Sunday afternoon, as part of the continuing 70th anniversary D-Day celebrations, spectators along the seafront were treated to a fly past from two World War II fighter aircraft

Bexhill is gearing up for a summer of fun with a packed social calendar and it looks like the good weather’s set to continue at least into next week. See the video at our website:
