Terry, Javad and Stuart

Urgent support for young man to stay in UK

Javad is a young orphaned autistic man, who came to the UK from Iran. Since learning about Javad’s case, Hastings Online Times has supported his wish to stay in the UK with Terry and Stuart Alexander, who three years ago took him into their home and hearts. Having had the threat of deportation hanging over his head for so long, Javad now wants to make another application to the Home Office to be allowed to stay in this country. With this aim and the help of his supporters, Javad is preparing to travel to Liverpool to do this on 22 May and he urgently needs your active and loud support. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

Greenway walking season kicks off!

Hastings Greenway Group is summoning supporters to join in this year’s first walk for the greenway. They welcome the fact that the project enjoys support from most of the parties in the upcoming local elections, but have found it hard to clarify whether they qualify for a grant from a walking and cycling fund which could help bring the dream closer to reality.

Waterweek returns to examine waste water

Waterweek is devised by artists Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still, who have been collaborating on a project about local water for five years. They follow “an organic process of where thinking about and being with water will take them. ‘A water wandering’; inquisitive, interactive, immersive, reflective, poetic, experiential, unexpected, spontaneous and flowing”. This year Waterweek is about waste water: sewage, polluted water and water we waste. Xaverine M A Bates found out more.
