Isabel Blackman Centre: great news

 

Wonderful News about the Isabel Blackman Centre
Hastings Council decided on 12th April to register the IBC as a Community Asset.
HOTRA applied for this 8 weeks ago. This result gives interested parties a 6
month moratorium that prevents the sale or a new lease being issued by ESCC.

There are more details in the Parish News, which you can download by clicking here.

graffiti

 

 

 

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.

Old Town wins Best Walking Neighbourhood poll!

Hastings Old Town has won the Ramblers' Association's Best Walking Neighbourhood Award!

Anthony Slack, long-time Hastings Old Town resident, nominated the Old Town. He said: “Whether it’s simply to visit local shops and restaurants, to go to the doctors’ surgery or to the local cinema or theatre, or just to admire our historic buildings, walking is usually the best way to do it in the Old Town. The well maintained green spaces, the sea views, and the pleasant places to stop for a rest and to socialise, all combine to make Hastings Old Town a fantastic, walkable community. We’re delighted that the Old Town has been crowned as Britain’s Best Walking Neighbourhood.”
