People’s tapestry inaugurated in St Clement’s

The Hastings 950 People’s Tapestry was inaugurated at the weekend with a blessing in St Clement’s church in the Old Town. Launched in April, the initiative  has proved enormously popular, and many panels have still to be returned and mounted. Nick Terdre reports. Photos by Simon Hennessey.

Mixed events start Hastings Week

We’re now into Hastings Week – a series of local events, commemorating the skirmish that occurred nearby on October 14, 1066, and culminating in Bonfire Night this Saturday. Last Saturday we had “Books Born in Hastings”, a mini-bookfair in the neo-Gothic splendour of the Town Hall’s Council Chamber, where local authors and publishers peddled their wares, writes Antony Mair.
