Local women add their images to climate change protests

Women from Hastings and the environs came together during lockdown to create a banner protesting against the effects of climate change.

Each panel in the banner represents a species which has become extinct or is endangered due to the changing climate.

The banner, which is composed of more than 100 panels embroidered or otherwise produced by women living in and around Hastings, was stitched together by Lorna Vahey and Jen Painter.

It will be on view at Hastings Museum from Thursday 10 to Sunday 13 December.

The museum reopens after the latest lockdown on Thursday, but visits have to be booked, either through the website or over the phone (01424 451052). Opening hours are 10am-12.30pm and 2-5pm, Thursday to Sunday.


Stop press The banner will also be on display when the museum reopens after the holiday break on 2 January.
