Walking and cycling funding cut draws protest

Hastings Greenway Group (HGG) has delivered a strong protest against East Sussex County Council’s decision to halve the budget for a package of walking and cycling routes in order to provide more money for road building, the latest in a series of walking and cycling commitments which have failed to materialise. Meanwhile the group has arranged a walk along the Ore Valley stretch of the proposed greenway route. Nick Terdre reports.

Moaning and Shopping

Hello Darlings, I’ve been giving some thought to these missives. You see, nobody likes a moaner. I think it’s very easy to moan and who wants to be happy anyway? More to the point, if you’re happy, what is there to moan about? And if there’s nothing to moan about then why be happy? But imagine you have everything you possibly desired. Just think about it… just the thought of it gives you a little kick, doesn’t it? That might be dopamine doing its thing.
