They will be giving a drill display on the hospital lawn when the League of Friends of Bexhill Hospital stages its annual event.

Newly-elected Town Mayor Cllr Paul Lendon will open at 1pm a garden party which will also include live music from the band of Little Common branch of the Royal British Legion and from Eastbourne Pipe Band.

Bexhill 100 Motor Club members will have classic cars on display.

Free studio portrait sessions are being offered by Bexhill Photographic for age group winners in the baby show, to be held in the hospital's health centre.

Stalls this year will include a health promotion feature. The key role of providing the event's tea-on-the-lawn feature is being taken over this year by the Masonic Ladies.

The garden party is seen as a showcase event by the League of Friends, an opportunity for town organisations to show their support for work of the charity which, at its last meeting alone, pledged to buy a further 114,000 worth of equipment, the bulk of it for Bexhill Hospital.
