The Coronavirus/Covid-19 will have an impact on all of us: our work, leisure, family, accessing services, shops and other people.
As a response, the Committee is looking at supporting a community effort to help residents cope. For example, if individuals are self-isolating, helping with basics such as shopping, loneliness, dog walking, etc. Much will depend on whether we have volunteers beyond the committee.
For the most recent news that we have about support issues, please go to our Covid-19 (tab on the top).

More details are coming about how we can safely do these things; similar efforts and action is taking place elsewhere in Hastings.
We are aware that there are fraudsters around. Be very careful who you open your door to. Do not give any bank details. We are not aware as yet that anyone will come to your door to test for the virus.

Increased activity – drugs
In recent weeks many residents have noticed considerable drug dealing activity in the square and neighbouring streets.
STAR streets have been the subject of drugs raids. In one incident, one of our members’ houses was inappropriately entered by the police. The Residents Association is deeply concerned about the random nature of the entry, whilst supporting a much-needed focus on drugs in the area.
