Changes to the Constitution of Hastings Borough Council were approved by full Council without any discussion by councillors in July 2017.

Binsted Woods threatened

Yes the Binsted Woods complex is under threat again. Not local to us around here, I know, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, but awareness of how many tree-loving individuals and groups there are who read this publication – and the fact that it’s possible to take action to stop the development – have catalysed me to post this article. The Protect Our Woodland group sent me details of the campaign, raising awareness of this threat to the woodland.

Bohemia Walled Garden

Horticultural harmony

The Bohemia Walled Garden, hidden within the trees and verdant undergrowth of Summerfields Wood, was once a neglected space in Bohemia, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick. Now transformed by the vision and determination, hard work and perseverance of a team of local people, the Garden’s door will be open this weekend as part of the Heritage Open Day project.
