The 1066 Local Energy campaign, an initiative from not-for-profit Energise Sussex Coast (ESC), aims to ‘increase community owned renewable energy, keeping money within our local area, decarbonising our energy and creating a fairer deal for us all’.

Master Balladeer – Peter Bolwell

Hot’s Sean O’ Shea talks to Peter Bolwell who is one of the most talented and engaging musicians on the local acoustic session’s circuit; he is also one of the most unassuming. As well as buckets of musicality he has a dry sense of humour, hence his performances are peppered with wry jokes and quirky observations on the human condition. He can be heard playing and singing at sessions and events in and around the Old Town, as well as on Wednesday evenings at Mungo’s Cafe near Hastings pier.
