Women Resist War

At the Quaker Meeting House on 2 May, there was an event themed around women who resisted the First World War, shining a light on those women who aren’t widely known yet, whose stories form part of the wider history of the war. John Enefer writes.

Howard Zinn (1922 - 2010)

To be hopeful…

At the end of last year, a postcard with words by Howard Zinn was delivered anonymously and unexpectedly through the postbox of HOT’s Chandra Masoliver, who then sent it on to HOT’s Zelly Restorick, who now shares the words with you here. Words which seem especially relevant at this time.

Women Resist War

As the centenary of the 1914 – 1918 war continues, a fascinating night is in store in South Terrace with talks on women who resisted the First World War. John Enefer writes.

The Seaview choir provides the carol concert finale.

Seaview choir caps successful concert

Seaview’s hugely enjoyable carol concert in St John the Evangelist Church last Saturday was supported by Sound Waves Community Choir and a cappella group, Now and Then and ended with a performance by Seaview’s own choir. The event proved a successful fundraiser, bringing in donations of £774 from a record crowd, estimated at 200 plus. The tally for the Big Sleep in September is still under way, but has so far reached more than £25,000. As public funding dwindles, Seaview is increasingly reliant on its own resources to raise the vital funds for its invaluable work with homeless, vulnerable and distressed people. Nick Terdre writes.
