Newhaven Fish Festival 2017

The 2017 Fish Festival took place in hot, sunny weather on Saturday 17th June.  This year’s event had to take place in the West Quay car park, rather than on the grass of Huggett’s Green, because of the flood defence work recently carried out on the Green by the Environment Agency – the grass seed sown after the flood defence work was not yet well enough established for people to walk on.  This didn’t spoil the fun, however, as you can see if you click on the video below.  Newhaven’s Town Mayor, Councillor June Dyer, entered into the spirit of the day by dressing up as a mermaid, together with Young Mayor, Sophie Lewis.
