Happy Christmas and very best wishes for a healthy 2022

A Very Big Thank you to everyone for the great support during the year and especially to the people that regularly post and keep the SMART page alive. Also to everyone that turns up at our coffee meets and also tune in to the radio shows. Another tough year but SMART is still going strong. We always need more old photos and cuttings that would be of interest and haven’t been posted before. One photo, can be so special for lots of people. It is a sad time for many but I hope some of the postings keep the happy times and memories alive. Best. Alan

Very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year

Very best wishes to everyone for the Christmas period and the new year and hoping 2021 is going to be better than this. Well it can’t be any worse!  A Big Big thank you to everyone who has supported SMART and kept the site and me going over these difficult months. The last SMART coffee meet was way back in February and then we had one booked for April but had to cancel due to Covid. Well looks like the next few weeks will get tougher and tougher. Here’s hoping we can all get back together sometime in the new year. As always still looking for more old photos and cuttings with a connection to the Hastings area, to keep the page interesting. Please feel free to post to the facebook page or email over to me, with as much detail as possible. Lots of love and whatever happens, they can’t take away our memories! Take care and stay safe xx
