Sea Change gives undertaking on tree-felling

Sea Change Sussex has given an undertaking not to cut down the remaining two trees on the route of the Queensway Gateway road unless planning permission for the road is restored. But many have queried why it tried to fell the two last trees after planning permission for the road had been quashed. It turns out that authority for this action came from East Sussex County Council. Nick Terdre reports.

Are you ready for a night of sleeping rough?

Fancy a brief taste of homelessness? Seaview Project is organising the Big Sleep, a mass sleep-out to allow local residents to experience a little of what life is like for the growing number of those who find themselves homeless and sleeping on the streets. Nick Terdre reports.

Zoo des Refusés (Kathleen Fox)

Once upon a time in Hastings

Once upon a time in Hastings is described thus: ‘Taking Hastings as their starting point, these three local artists – Kathleen Fox, Sally Meakins & Jo Welsh – have investigated different aspects of the town’s rich past and have discovered extraordinary stories, both factual and imaginative.’ HOT reporter Cathy Simpson had a highly enjoyable time at this delightful show – which is humorous, thought-provoking and disturbing in equal measure.
