Urgent national road policy consultation

According to the Campaign for Better Transport, the government plans to spend £30bn on building 190 new roads nationwide. If you think it’s not the right time for this, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, let the government know – urgently. The deadline for responding is Wednesday February 26.

Celebrate non-violence

As the government marks the First World War centenary by celebrating nationalism and military values, a new study/action group in Hastings will be examining the power and complexity of non-violence, writes Zelly Restorick.

Clean Seas Please!

In two years time, more stringent European standards will be applied to the quality of our bathing water and, based on current measurements, there’s a chance swimming in the sea at Hastings might be banned. However, all is not lost, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, there’s still time for us to make our part of the coast a place to happily and healthily enjoy the beach and sea.
