Farewell Katherine Little

We are saddened to announce the death of artist, Katherine Little, who was a Hastings’ resident for a couple of decades. Katherine died suddenly in December 2017: it appears that Katherine’s heart stopped due to undiagnosed heart disease – and we hope sincerely that she died peacefully in her sleep, free of suffering, anticipating another day. HOT’s Zelly Restorick writes.

Nurturing, nourishing naturism

At Tim Crook’s January Bavard Bar, held in St Leonards’ Kino-Teatr, Keith Palmer was one of the three speakers, whose mission is to inspire and interest the audience about their passion for 15 minutes followed by a Q&A. The title of Keith’s talk was ‘The Birthday Suit: how styles have changed,’ and his passion is naturism, especially naked rambling with the group, Stark Trekkers. Zelly Restorick writes.

Why Muriel Matters matters

Not so long ago an elderly Australian lady could be found most days at the Hastings Public Library thumbing the various newspapers and keeping up to date on current events. Few knew that this lady had, at one time in her youth, filled up the columns of these very same publications  with some of her own exploits. The aging lady’s name was Muriel Matters and, sitting in her library chair, she could scarcely have imagined that a building down the road would one day be named in her honour. Steven Glenn Anderson speaks to Frances Bedford, secretary of the Muriel Matters Society in Australia about the life of this fascinating suffragist and what the historical society named after her has been up to so far this year.
