Terry and Javad

Request for help for Javad

A few months ago, HOT reported on Javad’s case (see links below) – a young autistic man from Iran who is seeking safe asylum here in the UK. He’s lived here since his early teenage years and now has a home with two kind and caring local people, Terry and Stuart Alexander, who care for him very much and want him to be able to stay in this country. Your letters of  support are a much-needed contribution to Javad’s case. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

When will we learn…?

…that our mental health and physical health systems are intrinsically inter-linked and inter-connected – and are not separate, as our UK health provider suggests by having two independent services? HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

Volunteers needed to swell scout ranks further

The scouting movement in East Sussex is riding along on the crest of a wave, as the old scout song has it – but even though the number of volunteers has reached a record level, still more are needed to enable the large numbers of would-be recruits to join. Nick Terdre reports.

“Oi! SeaSpace / SeaChange / HBRL / whatever your name is: this land is our land”

Last Saturday saw a forgotten patch of land in Ore Valley become the centre of attention for the first time since the Broomgrove power station burned down 17 years ago. HOT’s Erica Smith was a volunteer steward. In between directing cars to the College car park, her thoughts turned to SeaSpace, SeaChange and the Great Battle for Neighbourhood Renewal. Scroll to the bottom of this article to find out how you can show your support for this brilliant community-led regeneration project.

Grant success for Woodland Project

The Woodland Project in East Sussex has won a grant of almost £50,000 to advance its work of organising days out in the woodlands for children and young people with physical and learning disabilities, their families and siblings. Nick Terdre reports.

Roland Jarvis

Roland Jarvis through his daughter’s eyes

It is not altogether fanciful to refer to Roland Jarvis as an extraordinary man. He was in his eighties when in 2015 he had his first one-person show in Hastings, at the Fleet Gallery. Reviewed at the time by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths, it was an exhilarating exhibition laying out his talents in  his paintings, drawings and installations. Following his death last year, a retrospective has opened at the same gallery. Lauris recalls the man through the eyes of his daughter.
