Schooling can open a world of opportunity

Students across the country have now received their A-Level results and are busy making important decisions about their future. However, the nervous wait continues for a few more days for those awaiting their GCSE grades. I would like to send my best wishes to all those in Hastings and Rye who are receiving their results this year.

Keeping the internet safe and sound

The internet has been a wonderful development in our lives helping to keep us connected with friends and family, and making everyday tasks like shopping, banking, research and education more straightforward. Sometimes its reach is unlimited and its ability to make you feel connected is fantastic.

Insourcing in fashion?

In June 2019, the council’s refuse and street cleansing contract will end. That’s much earlier than was intended, but it’s being terminated by mutual agreement, between the contractor and the four councils who are part of the same joint waste contract (Hastings, Wealden, Rother and Eastbourne).

Our streets need to be cleaned up

High on the list of items people feel most concerned about locally, along with the outrageous and avoidable closure of the Harold Place Toilets, is the state of our streets.

Hastings has the Spirit of Summer

The summer season is well underway now, Hastings is vibrant and buzzing, with so much going on. Last weekend was especially busy. We had the Classic Car Boot Fair on Hastings Pier, the Midsummer Fish Festival on the Stade Open Space, the Independence Day celebrations in the America Ground and the Beer Festival at its new home on the Oval.

Southern is on track but not there yet

Our communities need rail services that run on time and arrive when they expect. The performance of Southern, still far from perfect, has been consistently better this year. Earlier this week the House of Commons debated how further improvements will be delivered.

Taking measures to keep the poorer members of the community safer in their homes

The Grenfell Tower fire was a tragedy, but it was avoidable. There seems to be no doubt that flammable plastic cladding allowed the fire to spread up the outside of the building. The public enquiry will reveal more, but that will take months. So we must do what we can now to make sure everyone living in rented accommodation in Hastings is not exposed to the same risks that led to such tragic consequences in Kensington.

When horror strikes, remember the helpers

It is difficult to take in the full horror of the tragedy which took place at Grenfell Tower last week. Every memory of survivors or emergency responders adds harrowing new details to this truly awful event. My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost friends, loved ones and all they own.

Hoping austerity will be cut back

After the general election campaign, it’s time to settle back to being council leader. It was a close run contest, and I’d like to thank the 25,322 people who voted for me, and the 2,000+ who helped with the campaign, as well as congratulating Amber Rudd on her victory.
