Hastings to have new pocket park

INNOVATIVE NEW GREEN SPACES could soon spring up in Hastings & Rye, Amber Rudd has revealed.

More than £15,000 has been secured from the Government to create a new ‘pocket park’ in the area. The successful applicant, The Alley Association from Hastings, will shortly begin work to create a new green space in the town.

Amber Rudd MP said:

“Having a calm, easily accessible and nice area for families to visit and enjoy a day out is so important.

“This vibrant new green space will be a real boost for the local area and will – I hope – provide people with years of enjoyment.

“I have always said I would fight for the needs of my constituents and I heard time and time again from residents how important it is that green spaces are available locally.

“I look forward to the new park opening.”

Earlier this year the government announced the ‘Pocket Parks Plus Programme’ to facilitate the creation of these new parks..
