Don't take a chance on Old Town Healthcare

The Old Town Surgery in Roebuck Street no longer has the space to provide the safe, modern service that patients expect and deserve.
Dr Craig Namvar has drawn up plans to move to new, much bigger premises in the Ice House on Rock-a-Nore.
Hastings council have refused planning permission, and Dr Namvar is submitting a revised application. If this is also rejected, the surgery may have to move out of the Old Town, perhaps to Clive Vale. This would mean longer journeys for Old Town patients, many of whom are frail, live alone and have mobility problems.
HOTRA has organised a petition to put pressure on the council. You can sign it at the surgery, and soon at other places in the old town.

If you want to know more, you can download a leaflet by clicking here.
Please spread the word and get your friends and neighbours to sign!

Graffiti are not a new problem in the Old Town but in recent months there has been a blitz of tags on some of our walls. Hastings council will remove them if you complain – but only if they are on your property. Vivien Harrison has written a quick guide to notifying the council, which you can download by clicking here.
