Three green flags for Hastings

Nuclear fall-out and remembrance

Earlier this month, MPs voted for Trident renewal by 472 votes to 117 – a majority of 355, including nearly all Conservative Party members and half of Labour, even though Jeremy Corbyn, a lifelong unilateralist, and many Scottish National Party MPs opposed this decision, writes Zelly Restorick. In remembrance of the use of nuclear weaponry and its consequences, Hastings Against War will hold a service for those who lost their lives in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945, with a ceremony at the boating lake in Alexandra Park on Tuesday August 9th.

Hoping for peace…

Alexandra Park is like the lungs going through the centre of the town of Hastings. Next to the rose garden and running alongside the stream lies the Peace Garden. It was conceived as the result of a conversation between the late Kevin Murphy and Sally Cole on 12 September 2001. The garden is dedicated to: “Personal, community and world peace…” Fiona Rankine and Erica Smith tell us the story of the latest development in the Peace Garden.
