This week we cover the story on how a Hastings couple is preparing to get married in one of the first large weddings in the town for almost 18 months, after their wedding plans were delayed a year ago because of the pandemic.

East Sussex residents have also been urged to keep an eye out for ‘newer’ Covid symptoms amid the growing number of infections in the county.

And in other news in today’s Observer, the Hastings hospitality sector is struggling to fill job vacancies due to a shortage caused by uncertainty surrounding the industry.
