New neighbours for Stockleigh Road

If you are in the Seven Streets area of St Leonards this weekend, look out for moving vans in Stockleigh Road. Seven new homes have been created by the Amicus Horizon housing association and the new residents will be moving in over the next few days. HOT’s Erica Smith went round to check out the decor and lend a cup of sugar.

Hastings' Mad Jack Morris Dancers

Jack in the Green – Hastings dresses up again!

More jollity took place in Hastings this Bank Holiday Monday, with Jack in the Green – a celebration of the arrival of summer.  Fortunately, after weeks of dire weather, the sun kindly burnt off the morning sea mist and shone on the crowds, writes Antony Mair.

Bikers

Route 1066

It has always seemed an odd meeting of minds – the Jack in the Green Festival, the Drummers, the Morris dancers… and the Bikers. Different tribes, different interests, different dress codes but they all seem to jostle along happily together. A real oddity of a social and cultural mix. But it seems to work – in fact it more than works.  The different tribes coexist happily.
