Master’s visit to Hastings 18th May

The Master and the President of the Almshouses, along with members of the Court, visited the Company’s Almshouses at Hastings on the 18th May. After walking round the grounds, which were looking extremely good thanks to the hard work of the Warden and his team of gardeners, a very splendid luncheon with some of the residents took place at the Community Centre. This was a very jolly and lively event with much good-natured banter, as would be expected of watermen and lightermen. This was last official visit by the President Paul Ludwig who was retiring from office. The Warden presented Paul with some gifts from the residents as thank you for all his guidance and help during the last three years.
