Hastings and St Leonards Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Association

From Historical Hastings

The various Pleasant Sunday Afternoon Associations across the country (and later world) were established during the spring of 1875 by the Congregational deacon John Blackham at the Ebenezer Congregational Church, West Bromwich and gained popularity, spreading throughout Britain with meetings held in Baptist and Congregational churches and halls.[1]

Hastings had such an association as referenced in a newspaper report of a train accident affecting the Hastings & St Leonards association and members of the Robertson Street Congregational Church whilst on a trip to Hampton Palace in 1900[2]
