See Fringe in the ‘Stings
BY HASTINGS BUSINESS ASSOCIATION MANAGER, KELLY NOLAN
Wow, how time flies. I’ve just come back from a fifth birthday party (yes there was cake) for City Assist, our amazing team in purple who have made such a difference to our city.
Even if you don’t know who they are, you’ll have seen them walking around town. They are our ambassadors and our first responders. They de-escalate situations before they become problems, always have time for a chat, and are everyone’s aunties and uncles.
It’s fair to say that a lot of work has gone into Hastings City over the last five years, from lots of people, and the transformation has been significant. But a lot of that started with the visible presence of a team of four, wearing purple, walking the streets, there to help.
So thank you City Assist. And if you see them out and about this week why not stop them to say happy birthday and tell them what a great job they are doing for our city.
Fringe in the ‘Stings kicks off tomorrow! So much work has been going on behind the scenes to make this the best Fringe ever. Fringe is taking a tiny step out of your comfort zone, supporting local artists.Go out with your friends and have a really great time, seeing something you wouldn’t normally see.
Tickets are $10-$20 each. The shows are amazing and the atmosphere is second to none. Go to www.fringeinthestings.co.nz to buy your ticket, or come down to Common Room during opening hours. They can recommend shows and sell tickets. Don’t be that person saying ‘Oh, I wish I had gone.’ Be the one with all the stories.
