    Joining me in the morning were mum Donna Hyde and her lads Kenzy and AJ joined by cousin Luke and friend Harvey. Kenzy is a top online skater who has been chosen to play for England and skates locally for that brilliant group Eastbourne Edge, who are entering the Carnival again this year.

    And for the afternoon shift it was Team 2 from another great local charity Embrace. Thank you Becky, Annette, Leanna, Steve Holt (who has been on my Carnival committee from the very beginning) and the youngsters Ellie, Leah and Kiera.

    Dear All - we had one of our regular SavetheDGH campaign meetings last Saturday and amongst other things, we discussed the three recent births in cars or ambulances on the road to the Conquest Hospital in Hastings. And how terribly frightening each of these must have been for the mums and dads involved.
