Global kitchen celebrates the ethnic diversity of Hastings by bringing together women from different cultures and with differing culinary skills together for a series of shared cooking experiences and using Hastings fish in the Classroom in the Coast. Organised and run by Hastings Women's Voice, the idea is to encourage use of local produce in traditional recipes. East African, Middle Eastern, Far Eastern, European and Caribbean cuisines have been showcased and stories and dishes shared.

Groundwork Trust

A fantastic project to enable young people to learn new skills in woodwork and conservation. Working with Hastings own specialist boat builder and the fishermen three decommissioned fishing vessels will be conserved and transformed into Stade attractions.

The project is just about to start on its first vessel the 'Mandy Ann' and we  hope to keep you up to date on week by week progress.  



Classroom on the Coast is a unique chance to learn how to cook fish right in the heart of one of Britain’s oldest fishing communities.

This purpose built, fully equipped cookery school sits only yards from the famous Hastings fleet where fish has been landed for over 1000 years.  The 25 boats that sit on the shingle shore make up Europe’s largest beach landed fishing fleet – the perfect backdrop to learn the skills needed to prepare and cook freshly caught fish.

The Eggtooth Project

A great project that involved young people in getting to know more about fish, cooking and the fishing fleet.



Fishing Pathways is a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn about working with and in the Hastings Fishing industry.
They are developing and piloting a series of 8 week courses combining some classroom based learning delivered by fishermen and Stade based employers with connected work experience on the fishing beach and wider Stade area with places available for 24 young people.
