Work is already under way at Warrior Square Station garden! The plan is to plant fruit trees, build raised beds containing edible plants, plant climbers along the railings with ornamental plants interspersed elsewhere. Come and help out at one of our sessions (at the moment roughly every other weekend). The next session is Saturday 6 Feb 10am-1pm. Bring some tools and gloves if you can, but otherwise just bring yourself!

Hastings Big Happy Energy Day

Wednesday 17 February 10am–4pm at Sussex Coast College, Station Plaza, Hastings. Local voluntary organisations will be giving advice on how you can save money and live a healthier life. Come along whether you need help with health, well-being or energy advice – or wish to sign up to community volunteering. There will also be taster workshops on yoga and movement classes.

Solar Aid money raised at Jeremy Leggett's talk

Solar Aid donation

Back in November Jeremy Leggett came to Hastings to talk about his new book, The Winning of The Carbon War. Jeremy has now finished the book and it is available to order here with proceeds to SolarAid. Donations towards the talk in November raised over £400 for Solar Aid. They recently sent their thanks along with this graphic illustrating the impact of the money raised.

Best wishes to you from the Transition Town Hastings and St Leonards Core Team.
