Greenway walking season kicks off!

Hastings Greenway Group is summoning supporters to join in this year’s first walk for the greenway. They welcome the fact that the project enjoys support from most of the parties in the upcoming local elections, but have found it hard to clarify whether they qualify for a grant from a walking and cycling fund which could help bring the dream closer to reality.

Why we think we can use this technology against others and imagine it will never happen to us, is beyond comprehension. Acknowledging this, Hastings Against War has organised Fly Kites Not Drones 2018, in peaceful solidarity with people who live in countries where drones have been and are still causing death, injury and fear. Rona Drennen writes.
