Lanterns help brighten up park garden

Hastings International Cultures Day at Cornwall Park tomorrow has been cancelled because poor weather is forecast.

But an initiative to light up the park's Osmanthus Garden is going ahead. Chinese lanterns will shine in the garden until 11pm, tonight, Saturday and Sunday.
