The great gender debate

Woman’s Place UK (WPUK) is coming to Hastings on 20 June. This is part of a series of meetings about reform of the Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA 2004) that WPUK has been invited to organise by local groups concerned about the lack of consultation by the government and political parties. Posted by Kay Green on behalf of Woman’s Place UK.

Turbulent Spinsters

Ann Kramer’s latest book, Turbulent Spinsters, is the story of local women who fought for the right to vote. Ann is a prolific writer and has joined forces with Kay Green at Earlyworks Press – both Hastings residents – to publish this book about local social history; a fascinating read for anyone who wants to know how local women contributed to this nationwide campaign and what happened to them on their journey. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asks Ann about Turbulent Spinsters and her passion for writing and research.

Southern Rail or RMT – who cares?

Last month Sandra went to support the RMT strikers at Hastings station for the first time. As a wheelchair user, she’s very worried about the Driver-Only-Operated train policy, because she can foresee that if trains can be operated by the driver alone, the chances are that the role of the guard/conductor/second person on the train will be eroded in favour of profits. Here Sandra tells her heartwarming story for you in the face of adverse travel circumstances.

Not Here, Not Us

Earlier this month, Bronwen Griffiths published her book of short stories and flash fiction, Not Here, Not Us, about Syrian refugees and the situation in Syria. HOT’s Zelly Restorick asked Bronwen about her interest in the conflict, her support for the refugees, the organisations she’s involved with, her inspiration for writing the book and how we can find out more about the crisis.

Local independent bookshop needs support

Independent book shops are gems, standing out from – and up against – competition from the book selling chain stores. Tim Barton is a committed book lover and book seller, supporting local writers, performers and artists. In need of refurbishment and expansion into new areas – like a cafe for visitors – Tim is keen to raise some financial support to manifest the vision he has for Bookbuster. HOT’s Zelly Restorick helps spread the word.
