Woodland walking with Heart of Hastings

The Heart of Hastings warmly invites you to a guided woodland walk around the old power station site in Ore on Saturday 16 June from 10am. People will be on hand to inform you about the ecology and history of the area, as well as Heart of Hastings’ plans for the site. Environment and Outreach co-ordinator for Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust – and also the guide for the walk, Anton Hack writes.

Visitors of any age are welcome, but please note that no under 16s will be admitted alone, and there are difficult – and probably wet – areas of terrain to walk over, so please bring appropriate footwear. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on a short lead to follow site requirements.

To sign up and for details, visit: Woodland Walk.
