About us

Hastings In Focus is an online news and entertainment platform dedicated to showing off the very best of Hastings and St Leonards and covering the stories that will ensure that local people get the best services possible.

Launched by publishing veteran Stuart Baillie, Hastings In Focus will use all the latest online tools to tell the story of the town and its inhabitants. Expect to watch great video, listen to audio clips of local people telling their own stories in their own words. And there will still be carefully written news articles and features and great photography showcasing the very best from this corner of East Sussex.

Hastings In Focus is about showing off the great things happening at the heart of our community and telling the stories of the people out there doing their very best for themselves, their neighbours and their community.
