Borough Wines, Hastings

Hastings has a wine shop, at last. St Leonards has two: Phoenix & Plum in Kings Road; and you can buy wine at Graze on Grand on the front. But now Borough Wines, Beers & Books has their own wine shop. It opened in Robertson Street and, having given it a few weeks to bed in, HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went to take a look.

Use your loaf – learn how to make bread!

We may not live by bread alone, but a tasty loaf certainly makes life more palatable. Now expert advice on making your own bread is available at a new course tutored by Shelley Feldman of 1066 Cake Stand, as she explains.

Best coffee places in St Leonard’s

After my post on Best Coffee Places in Hastings, I had many St Leonardsistas complaining that I had left their cafes out, despite me saying that I was only concentrating on Hastings Town Centre and the Old Town.  Well, now it is time to put that right, so off to St Leonard’s we go. Stephanie Gaunt, aka Hastings Battleaxe, continues her reviews.

Best coffee places in Hastings

I love a good cup of coffee and a nice piece of cake. Philosopher and I indulge most days. Hastings Battleaxe, aka Stephanie Gaunt, lists her favourites.

Meet the market organiser for St Leonards Marketplace, Anton Burton, shown in the centre of the photo above. Last year, Anton ran three successful markets for St Leonards’ Town Team – one on the day of St Leonards Festival along Kings Road, and two pre-Christmas markets in Crystal Square car park. This year, the first of our regular weekly markets will be on Saturday 19 April – Easter Saturday – in Crystal Square car park. Each week there will be themed entertainment, thanks to a Community First grant. HOT’s Erica Smith wanted to know what Anton has lined up for us when the market re-opens this Spring.

Taking a stand for vegan cakes

One’s not a vegan and neither has a diploma in baking. But if you want a tasty vegan or gluten-free cake, 1066 Cake Stand’s Kevin Young and Shelley Feldman are the bakers to go to. Usually to be found in their shop opposite Morrison’s or weekly stall in Hastings market, they’ll be offering their wares, as well as their second recipe book, at St Leonards Festival on Saturday. Nick Terdre met them.
