HCN: Exploring the Impact of Loneliness & Isolation for all in Hastings and St Leonards'

“Thank you, HCN and HVA for a wonderful morning! I was very inspired leaving this event on Tuesday and will be passing information on to colleagues. I must admit, when leaving the White Rock Theatre, on a beautiful sunny morning to walk back to work along the prom, I was full of smiles and hellos for people and I believe it did cheer both them and myself up a great deal – connecting is so important!”
