Peace poppies in the peace garden

A remembrance event for all the victims of wars will be held in the Peace Garden at Alexandra Park with readings, songs and the laying of a wreath of white poppies at the war memorial. As an alternative to the red poppy, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, the white poppy represents a challenge to the systems that tell us that making war is an inevitable part of our lives.

Lost Little Roar rediscovered

A lost temperate rainforest world is soon to be revealed in the heart of Hastings, reports HOT’s Zelly Restorick. Since April, a team of people, paid and volunteer, have been involved in clearing a path through the wilderness to re-discover the lost beauty of Little Roar ghyll, a waterfall in the depths of Alexandra Park. Sibling to the better known Old Roar, Little Roar has been largely inaccessible to any but the most determined of human visitors since the Great Storm of 1987.

Alexandra Park is the place to be on Saturday September 1, when The Summer Day @ The Park will once again be celebrated! Apparently, writes Zelly Restorick, more than 4,000 people turned up last year. The park is, however, large and accommodating and there’ll be plenty of room for everyone. All ages and varieties welcome, and – music to recession hit ears – entry and most of the games and attractions are FREE!
