Hastings Borough Council has completed the mandatory improvement works they were required to carry out at Shornden Reservoir in Alexandra Park. Councillor Colin Fitzgerald said: “The bare soil at the site has been grass seeded to help stabilise the dam bank. To allow this to become established, the area will be fenced off, possibly until Spring 2019.”

Similar work continues at Harmers Reservoir and should be completed by early November.

The new harbour wall to protect Hastings’ beach-launched fishing fleet is now finished.
