Knockout fun for families – and their dogs

Bexhill celebrated last week as a packed schedule of competitions and events made carnival a week to remember.

Thousands of residents from across the town and beyond turned out for classic events including It’s a Knockout, hosted on Monday afternoon (July 22) by Commando Fitness, and the carnival dog show in the Polegrove on Wednesday (July 23).

Party in the Park, late on Friday night, saw a host of bands entertaining around 5,000 partygoers, before a fireworks display rounded the evening off.

And this year’s pram race, organised by the Sportsman pub, Sackville Road, saw teams launching from West Station on Thursday evening.
