30 July 2006 Celebrations

This is the date that 100 years ago the extension of Hastings Tramways into Bexhill and Cooden opened. We celebrated this by having a bus run from the Bexhill Yacht Club to the Cooden Beach Hotel. At the front of the procession was a ½ scale tram built by club member Nigel Chapman. At the Cooden Beach Hotel the Mayor of Bexhill unveiled a commemorative painting by Mike Turner and a plaque. Below is an approximate time guide of the day's events Thank you to The Mayor of Bexhill - Eric Armstrong, The Cooden Beach Hotel, The BLOD's, the children from Charters Ancaster school, the Bexhill 100 car club, Mike Turner and Roy Austen who without their help would have made the day impossible.
