Great news! - on Monday evening the cabinet of Hastings Council agreed to declare Hastings Country Park and Fairlight Place Farm a Local Nature Reserve.
Once formally declared later this spring the site will be one of the largest Local Nature Reserves in England and the largest to be declared in the last 20 years.
To celebrate this Local Nature Reserve declaration we are holding an opening event on the 15th July not only to promote the nature reserve declaration but also to celebrate and highlight the invaluable contribution the local community has made to nature conservation in Hastings over the last few years. All conservation volunteer groups and friends of groups in Hastings will be invited to join in the event.
If you would like to be involved or would like more information about the Local Nature Reserve declaration of Hastings Country Park & Fairlight Place Farm please contact the Nature Reserve Officer, Andy Phillips - firstname.lastname@example.org
