During the current crisis, we’re not allowed to knock on doors and deliver newsletters like we used to. So most weeks, we’ll be doing a walkabout in different parts of Tressell Ward to look at what’s going on – we’ll publish reports on what we find here in this blog. However, these too are now suspended during the current lockdown. When they recommence, walkabouts will be conducted by some or all of Cllr. Tania Charman, Cllr. Peter Chowney, Ali Roark (our Labour candidate for Tressell Ward in May 2021) and other local residents. Please comment on the posts if you have additional informational you’d like to add, or questions you’d like to ask. All comments are moderated – so don’t post anything offensive, it won’t appear. If you’d like to meet us on one of our walkabouts, send a message via the Contact page. We usually go out on Tuesday mornings, weather permitting.

Today, I walked around the ‘top end’ of the ward: Cookson Gardens, Ticehurst Close, Tuppenney Close, Little Acres Way, Frederick Road, Percy Road, Coghurst Road, Greville Road, Clifton Road (in the picture), Travellers Lane and Speckled Wood (the housing development). This end of the ward is mostly owner occupied, with...Read More
Farley Bank has suffered from very poor cleaning in the past, but this is now much improved. The cleaning problems have emerged in part because Hastings Council is responsible for cleaning the roads and footpaths, but Optivo Housing Association is responsible for cleaning the grassed and planted areas. This is...Read More
