Greenway group calls open evening

Hastings Greenway Group is holding an open evening on Thursday 2 February with the aim of moving their campaign for a safe walking and cycling network into a higher gear. On the agenda will be possible funding for the Ore Valley stretch of greenway and the formation of a sustainable transport forum for the town. Nick Terdre reports. Photos by Tony Polain.

Walk the walk for the Ore Valley Greenway

Funding is available for walking and cycling routes in Hastings and Bexhill – and supporters of the Ore Valley Greenway route would like to have some of it. They have organised a walk along the route today in support of their initiative, as they explain. 

Walking and cycling – tell them!

East Sussex County Council would like to hear your views about Hastings’ draft Walking and Cycling strategy, according to which a network of walking and cycle routes across the town is planned to encourage  short local journeys on foot and by bike, especially journeys to work, school and shopping facilities, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.

Be mobile and make them mobile!

Sponsored walkers are looking to raise £1,000 for charity by walking about 60 miles from St Leonards-on-Sea to Canterbury in April. The walk is being organised by Ian McNulty, manager of an Abbeyfield South Downs House at St Leonards. Ian leads a team out each year to raise funds to keep a mini-bus on the road for residents, writes HOT’s Chris Cormack.
