Au Revoir EU

Our letter of resignation from the EU, ie the 'trigger' of Article 50, goes out today... Whatever our opinions, whether we are Remainers or Brexiteers, let's hope it doesn't all go ar*e up, fingers crossed for the future and good luck to the negotiators!

White Rock Promenade Kiosk Now Open, Honest!


Yesterday, I noticed that the kiosk that was first mooted in the plans for the regeneration of the White Rock Promenade nearly 2 years ago, is now open to provide refreshments! 


This is how it was envisaged in the plans (see my blog of 11th June 2015). I'm sure they were talking about it as an 'information kiosk' at the exhibition at the White Rock Hotel that day. Though, with even more cut-backs to funding to local councils, particularly for Hastings, from Central Government, plus noting that, despite the Borough Council keeping its own annual council tax increase to 2%, the overall increase for Hastings council tax payers in 2017/18 is 4.3%! Subsequently, I can understand that, I presume, this kiosk is now being used as a way of making income for the Council... fair enough.

From the Blue Reef Aquarium facebook page: "Thank you so much to everyone that came today! The turn out was incredible. We will do a count up of the rubbish bags this afternoon and let you know. If anyone took any pictures they would be happy to be used on future publicity material, then please do post them on here or email them to hastings@bluereefaquarium.co.uk. 


"Enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing you kicked it off to a good start by helping the environment and your local community."

Good stuff!
