“Oi! SeaSpace / SeaChange / HBRL / whatever your name is: this land is our land”

Last Saturday saw a forgotten patch of land in Ore Valley become the centre of attention for the first time since the Broomgrove power station burned down 17 years ago. HOT’s Erica Smith was a volunteer steward. In between directing cars to the College car park, her thoughts turned to SeaSpace, SeaChange and the Great Battle for Neighbourhood Renewal. Scroll to the bottom of this article to find out how you can show your support for this brilliant community-led regeneration project.

Ready to push ahead with Speckled Wood plans

Ore Community Land Trust (CLT) recently passed an important milestone in their plans for Speckled Wood: they are now constituted as a charity, which should facilitate the task of seeking funding. This weekend they have organised a big spring clean of the wood. Nick Terdre reports. Photos by Karen Fullalove.

The walk starts from Ore station at 1.30 pm.

Funding is available for walking and cycling routes in Hastings and Bexhill – and supporters of the Ore Valley Greenway route would like to have some of it. They have organised a walk along the route today in support of their initiative, as they explain.

Give someone you love a little bit of Hastings this Christmas

Are you stumped by Christmas? No idea what to give anyone? Fed up with over-consumption and angry about the crazy cost of accommodation (Hastings’ propery prices rose by 12% in 2016)? Then think about giving a little bit of heart this Christmas by buying your loved one a share in the Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust. HOT’s Erica Smith is proud to be an early adopting shareholder.

Two ways to warm up Ore Valley this Saturday

For over 40 years the old Broomgrove Power Station site has been left empty and derelict, but in September 2016 the Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust was given a licence on the land to start working with local people to design and create a new kind of development from the bottom up. Erica Smith talks to Jess Steele and others from the Heart of Hastings about the project.
