Jazz Picnic 2017
Sun 27th August 2017 at 11.30 - 17.30
Featuring live: Excelsior Vintage Jazz Band and The Victory Sisters.
It was another scorcher of a fundraiser when The Rotary Club of Senlac’s annual Jazz Picnic took place on Bank Holiday Sunday, 27thAugust. With around 200 people in the audience in excess of £1,000 was raised for local good causes Following the disappointment of last year’s cancellation, the weather turned up trumps; although not quite as hot as the day of the Classic Car Show, it was a perfect day for a picnic in the lovely ‘Westfield Lane garden of Rotarian Pat Connor and his wife, Judy. The music was provided by the Excelsior Vintage Jazz Band and the ever and increasingly popular Victory Sisters and the Brolly Parade was even more successful than in previous years with about 100 people joining in, The sound of bottles being popped, glasses clinking and cups and plates rattling as the audience picnicked complemented the music throughout the afternoon. The profits from the event will be distributed through the club’s trust fund to, amongst other good causes, the Hastings and Bexhill Junior Rugby Club.
The success of the event is down to the hard work of Pat Connor with the support of Judy, Marcia Bryant who organised the catering and Chris Folley who ran the raffle.
