Benefits include having loads of FUN, being allowed to join Hastings Bonfire Procession and other societies processions to which we are invited, being invited to lots of other FUN events throughout the year.
Members get involved in lots of ways including attending fundraising events (more fun), organising events (that's fun too), helping as a marshal at events like Pirate Day and Jack in the Green and the Beer Festival; this earns a contribution towards our funds. Members who take a more active and responsible part are elected as captains or vice-captains, along with the positions of chair, secretary and treasurer.
We also value and encourage membership from people who prefer not to be actively involved, or who are not local residents.
We spend all year having amazing fun raising money to enjoy exploding and burning it in our wonderful procession, bonfire and firework display in October; an event that is enjoyed by tens of thousands.
Without the members this event would not take place - so if you love Hastings Bonfire please join to support and be part of it.
We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 8pm at the White Rock Hotel.
Membership is very reasonable: Adult £15.00 One adult & under 18s at the same address £15.00 Family: Two Adults & under 18s at the same address.
Membership runs from 1st January until 31st December. Membership cannot be processed during the bonfire season, as members need to be aware of health and safety policies; for this reason renewals and applications cannot be processed after 1st September until the November Meeting.
