Our children and young people must be given every chance to make the very most of their potential. This begins with a high-quality education. Whilst I wasn’t the best student, I was lucky to have many excellent teachers and wonderful opportunities at school.

Cllr Peter Chowney: It’s getting harder to balance the books

It’s that time of year again – the time that local government finance officers dread. Just before Christmas, the government tells councils how much money they’ll have to spend in the coming financial year. And in recent years, there’s not been much seasonal cheer to that announcement.

On Your Marks: Life is stressful, and we want to make it less so

In the first of these columns, I spoke to Dr Minesh Patel from the CCG, and something he said really resonated with me. He said that he had prescribed someone with anxiety and depression to do a parkrun - and it really helped.

Board established for good housing

Last month, Hastings Council set up a housing company to acquire and build housing. The company will be wholly-owned by the council, and its directors will be council officers, and one councillor. Its policies and constitution will be determined by Hastings Council, but the board of directors will make decisions on what properties it should buy or develop.
