Over and Out for Artshelter?

During the long wait for a bus, local artist and writer, Maureen Connett, has been pondering what can be done to cheer up the town centre, in particular the bus stops at Queens Road. She would have liked to share her art portraying local places in Hastings on the empty spaces at the bus shelters, but it looks like the Pandemic may have put paid to a ‘laudable initiative’. We can take another look at Maureen’s art here.

Seaview choir caps successful concert

Seaview’s hugely enjoyable carol concert in St John the Evangelist Church last Saturday was supported by Sound Waves Community Choir and a cappella group, Now and Then and ended with a performance by Seaview’s own choir. The event proved a successful fundraiser, bringing in donations of £774 from a record crowd, estimated at 200 plus. The tally for the Big Sleep in September is still under way, but has so far reached more than £25,000. As public funding dwindles, Seaview is increasingly reliant on its own resources to raise the vital funds for its invaluable work with homeless, vulnerable and distressed people. Nick Terdre writes.

A pride of Hastings musicians

The Hastings Sinfonia can be relied upon to present a programme of popular and melodic music which includes a good range of romantic classics, lesser known composers whose works are nevertheless immediately identifiable and the works of living composers which are melodic and accessible. This Saturday’s Winter Concert is no exception, writes Chris Cormack.

A photographic sense of place

It is certainly to be welcomed that there is a new gallery space in Hastings – at the former Observer building. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths went there, with great anticipation, to see the PhotoHastings exhibition Pinups: A Sense of Place.

Former actress still in fine voice as she hits 100

Terry Randall, better known locally as Terry Collier – who had a leading role as Lancashire Annie in the classic wartime film Millions Like Us – celebrated her 100th birthday last Thursday, 30 October. Friends joined her for a cream tea party at the Coastguard Tearooms at Fairlight, where stills from her acting career decorated the tables so that everyone could see just what she got up to in her heyday. Terry’s daughter Jane Nunn recalls her acting career.
