None of the documentation was supplied! I found this disrespectful and surprising as Hudson is legally a bilingual town. I noticed a number of people leaving during the presentation and heard, after the session, numerous people co
Dear Editor, The population of Hudson remains around 5000 and has been more or less unchanged for many years.

So many exciting and entertaining events are happening lately in our part of the world. Theatre, garden parties, public markets, fundraising galas and rides to name but a few.
