Greenway walking season kicks off!

Hastings Greenway Group is summoning supporters to join in this year’s first walk for the greenway.

Pig’s ear causes sty in eye

An exhibition of paintings by two unrelated artists which is now drawing to a close at Hastings Museum and Art Gallery throws a fascinating light on how the Old Town looked in the 19th and early 20th centuries, writes Nick Terdre.
