MONTHLY SEAGULL MAGAZINE
FREE, LOCAL, LIFESTYLE MAGAZINE
It’s nearly time for another school holiday so have you got your fortnight planned yet? I do hope this glorious sunshine beaming through my window continues.
If you have loads going on, including juggling work days, which so many of us do, I’ve included a handy calendar page in the April issue so that you can write down the events, play dates that you don’t want to miss (see pg 8). Keep your magazine in your bag because it’ll be handy to make notes too.
You’ll see from our free local events guide (pg 26) there are so many enjoyable family activities to do in April to interest all ages. If you like art, there’s always the colouring competition, which this month is a beautiful Fabergé style egg, (pg 22, plus there’s a great fun fact about Fabergé there too!) or maybe give the crossword a go (pg 28) when you cunningly snatch a quiet tea break; well there’s always the shed to escape treading on Lego!
Read about the local ‘Get Hastings Reading’ event, lots of local school children had fun with authors Greg James and Chris Smith. It was a great success and the children had a great experience, (pg 6).
Don’t forget there are also even more interesting events advertised in the magazine, there are some great local discounts such as Knockhatch, (pg 27) they’re offering 20% off with their advert! So there’s no excuse and if you hear “I’m bored”, hand them the washing bin!
