Hastings Jack-in-the-Green 2012

The Hastings Jack-in-the-Green was released this morning from the Fisherman’s Museum in Rock-a-Nore Rd and paraded through the town of Hastings joined by the City of London Jack-in-the-Green, the Fowlers Troop Jack-in-the-Green and a vast array of Bogies and other followers in celebration of the Hasting’s Jacks 30th Anniversary. Many more pictures to follow on our Flickr site soon. sadly I didn’t manage to get away in time to visit the Whitstable Jack and would dearly love some pictures if possible. I would also like to hear from anyone who can give me confirmation of sightings  or pictures of any other Jacks that went out this year including:

The Guildford Jack-in-the-Green
The Brentham Jack-in-the-Green
The Knutsford Jack-in-the-Green
The Oxford Jack-in-the-Green
The Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green
The Ilfracombe Jack-in-the-Green
The Tunbridge Wells Jack-in-the-Green
The High Wycombe Jack-in-the-Green
The Whitstable Jack-in-the-Green


City of London Jack-in-the-Green 2012

I believe (but would love confirmation) that the City opf London Jack-in-the-Green was out and about in the City on May 1st. Jack also joined the Fowlers troop Jack and the Hastings Jack in Hastings on 7th May. I attempted to catch the City of London Jack as it left the Fisherman’s Museum prior to the Hasting’s Jacks release  to find out more but due to it’s extremely speedy nature and habit of running off at high speed whilst shouting “bogie, bogie, bogie”  I failed miserably. More pictures soon on our Flickr site http://www.flickr.com/photos/thecompanyofthegreenman/
