Animal sentience to be denied?

A few years ago, Thom Kofoed and I, both local residents, made a short animation film about the export of live animals. This included mention of the Lisbon Treaty and the acknowledged sentience of animals and how this was vital to their welfare. Post Brexit, this will change in the UK, but maybe it can be stopped if enough of us respond? Zelly Restorick writes, quoting from Compassion in World Farming’s latest report.

Sustainability advisor backs 1066 Local Energy

Imagination, creativity and innovation. Intrinsic elements for our shared future. And elements encapsulated deep in the heart of 1066 Local Energy’s vision for Hastings and St Leonards on Sea for clean electricity generation. Alan Simpson, advisor on sustainability to the Shadow Cabinet and committed renewable clean energy advocate was the main speaker at a pre-launch gathering held at The Beacon, adding his enthusiastic support to the evolution of locally owned, lower priced energy production where the money generated would stay within the local community. HOT’s Zelly Restorick reports.

Artists have long been captivated by flowers. Colour, black, white, abstract, still lives, nature mort, part of a landscape, interiors, large, small; flowers are irresistible. An inexhaustible topic. Georgia O’Keefe painted them graphically. Robert Mapplethorpe was consumed by the beauty of them. As is Bruce Rae. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to follow Rae’s recent scent.

Look up to the skies…

When I look up at the sky now, I think to myself: how lovely – currently still drone free. Make the most of it… HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.
