Erica says: “Do something!”

Aleister Crowley

Was Crowley the “Wickedest Man in the World”?

Why has no Blue Plaque been awarded to Aleister Crowley – self-styled “The Beast 666”? Perhaps we may understand why when we hear that the popular press described this charismatic character as “The Wickedest Man in the World”. Gilly Metcalfe writes.

Humanising homelessness

Harry Tryphonos felt catalysed to write an article about homelessness after seeing the number of homeless people in the Hastings area and the south coast generally – and an awareness of the increasing reliance on charitable causes rather than social schemes to help people.

Regeneration from the bottom up

Hastings Green Party will be hosting a free talk on Thursday 25 October about how regeneration must be done in collaboration with local people, rather than being imposed from the top down. The talk, ‘Darning the Fabric: regeneration from the bottom up’, will be given by Jess Steele, a community activist and social entrepreneur based in Hastings. Jess is a founder director of the Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust, supporting community regeneration in the White Rock and Ore Valley areas.

Got questions?

Holy Trinity Hastings (HTH) is about to run a new Alpha course  for this term and it kicks off with a social evening on Wednesday 3 October at 7pm with a Katsu Curry and Cheese Bingo. It’s a chance to meet new people and to explore the big questions in life. HOT’s Vanessa Alves writes.
