Hastings based author and animal advocate, Kim Stallwood, is celebrating the publication of his excellent new book: Growl: Life Lessons, Hard Truths and Bold Strategies from an Animal Advocate at the vegan restaurant, Moose’s Kitchen in St Leonards – and you are invited to attend, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick. In the Forward to ‘Growl’, Brian May, animal advocate, legendary guitarist and founding member of the rock group, Queen, writes: “I believe this book is important enough to be essential reading for anyone who has begun to listen to what their conscience says, as regards how we, as humans, behave towards the other beings on Earth, whether human or nonhuman”.

Hastings Carnival Week gets going…

Hastings Carnival Week is a wonderful annual miscellany of local events, including open gardens and studios, Carnival Queens, a spectacular pram race (of which more in a few days’ time), historical walks round the Old Town and quaint goings-on with whelk-eating, tugs-of-war, seaboot races etc.  Needless to say, there is ample opportunity for the locals to dress up, which they enjoy more than anything else, writes Antony Mair.
