This is the date that 100 years ago the
extension of Hastings Tramways
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 1/2 scale tram built by
club member Nigel Chapman. At the
Beach Hotel the Mayor of
Bexhill unveiled a commemorative
painting by Mike Turner and a plaque.
