Hastings ‘Drop Everything and Read’ in pictures

Top authors and key local community members are leading the charge to get Hastings focused on reading at 2pm today (Friday, July 12).

At that time, children and adults across the town are being challenged to stop what they are doing and read for 10 minutes. The moment is part of the Get Hastings Reading campaign from the National Literacy Trust and the Hastings Opportunity Area. For more information, click here.
