Over the years HIP has photographed many people to illustrate articles that are published in the paper. Although we ask permission to do so at the time, some people might not be aware that they actually appeared in the paper. So we’ll be republishing some of those photos on our Facebook and Instagram pages with a link to the article it illustrated.

This photo above is of a couple, new to Hastings; they were snapped back in July 2020 looking in the window of Mike Willis’ shop, Ramshackle, in Norman Road. (HIP Issue 156, Interesting People#1.)

We hope you have enjoyed reading this article. The future of our volunteer led, non-profit publication would be far more secure with the aid of a small donation. You can also support local journalism by becoming a friend of HIP. It only takes a minute and we would be very grateful.
