    I’m involved with a group in Worthing regarding disinvestment from fossil fuel. I would be grateful if you could put me in touch with a like minded group in Hastings

    There has long been a lot of talk about what could be done or should be done to improve Hastings. The great thing about TTH is that they are actually doing something positive and very worthwhile.
