About Hastings Online Times
Hastings Online Times is an independent magazine for news, views and features about Hastings and St Leonards and includes probably the most comprehensive events guide in Hastings and St Leonards. It is neither a commercial venture nor an official PR vehicle, but has been created because we think Hastings and St Leonards are very special towns and it’s high time this was celebrated.
Two years after its conception, this web magazine is still a work in progress. Anyone who would like to be part of our team, write for it, promote it or help us to develop and improve the site is welcome to contact us. The current team includes Christopher Cormack, Solomon Curtis, Beth Davies, Liam Kearney, Graham Hodgson, Richard Hull, Cathy Simpson, Erica Smith, Kim Stallwood, Nick Terdre, Helen Truman, and Nick Weekes.
Many thanks to all whose work and enthusiasm has helped to get it this far, and especially to Martin O’Neill of Cut-It-Out Studio for providing our uniquely evocative mastheads.
