Hastings council to vote on ditching investments in oil, gas and coal

Local residents will be joined by campaigners from further afield in East Sussex on Wednesday 13 April, for Hastings Borough Council’s historic vote on divestment from fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas). Locally, the Labour Party is in favour of divestment, but the test will be how many Tories choose to support the motion.

A fishy tale

Laetitia Yhap is very well known among Hastings townsfolk as a chronicler in pictures of Hastings fisherfolk, but anyone who has ever sung in a choir here is likely to know her for her predilection to sing. Her latest project to sing with the Herring Girls choir in a drama with music called Get Up And Tie Your Fingers is another way to chronicle the lives of fisherfolk and has caused her to reflect on the part sea fishing has played in her life.

Hastings Old Town – centre of creativity

When we told friends in France that we were moving to Hastings, there were mixed reactions.  The usual one was “Why Hastings?” asked with an air of perplexity.  That was easily dealt with – it had happened entirely by chance.  But one friend followed it up with – “but there won’t be any cultural life there”.  I know what she meant: there’s no theatre to speak of and precious little in the way of classical music, writes Antony Mair.
