Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust

The Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust is currently working on a project in the Ore Valley. The ultimate aim is to develop the former power station site (Broomgrove) for affordable housing. This also entails supporting the Hastings Greenway group, which is working hard to make key services like the Ore Valley Sussex Coast College and Ore Station much more accessible to the surrounding neighbourhoods by opening up a route through the Ore Valley, which will pass through the power station site. Environmental Site Steward and Outreach worker for Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust (Ore Valley), Anton Hack writes.

Ironwork in the park

Blacksmiths have started a three-month project to help an historic greenhouse start a new, working life. Ben Crosthwaite and Tobias Cobrin are cleaning, painting or replacing cast iron and steel  parts on the structure at Alexandra Park, Hastings, so that its ventilation  windows can function again.

Town centre toilets

Toilet trouble

In case you don’t already know, the town centre public toilets are scheduled to be closed, due to lack of funding/funding cuts. Maybe not a hugely noteworthy piece of news, but vital if you need to find one fast.

Recycle Swap Shop initiative

Members of the Transition Town Hastings Team have accomplished another of their goals by bringing the Swap Shop initiative here to the town. A brilliant idea where we can pass on the things we no longer want to other people who see our discarded items as discovered treasure – and we can search for things we do need/want.

The Bunker - blot on the Country Park landscape and on the council's reputation (photo: Bernard McGinley).

Much to debate at SEG’s AGM

There will be much to chew over when the Save Ecclesbourne Glen group holds its annual general meeting (AGM) in late February – the owners’ successful appeal against the demolition of the Bunker, the battle to have it effectively screened from the Country Park and the other conditions set by the planning inspector complied with. Nick Terdre reports.
