Hastings folk at the War & Peace Revival are also featured, including the amazing story of a vintage motor bike with a Hastings registration.

Rye’s Own, Hastings Town & Cinque Ports have been described as a shining beacon in hard copy publishing.

At a time when many newspapers and magazines are disappearing from newsagents shelves as ‘free sheets’  television round the clock news and the internet are slowly killing off purchased print and even the newsagents themselves, the three local publications featured here go on from strength to strength, thanks to our loyal readers, advertisers and surviving newsagents.  

There are many villages and even towns, in our catchment areas that do not have a newsagents now. The Cinque Port of Tenterden springs to mind as a big town without a traditional newsagent. Is there a small shop on Tenterden High Street prepared to sell Cinque Ports? Or outlets in villages without a newsagent who are prepared to sell our publications.  Please Tel 01303 814874 if you can help. We can supply by subscription but many readers tell us that a magazine bought over the counter is always more fun to read.
