Help shape our Bexhill plans

We are working on plans to redevelop our site in Bexhill.

We own the large site on London Road that used to be Russell’s Garage. It has the potential to offer much better facilities and more display space for our customers and our team, and to provide spaces for others to start up their own businesses, social enterprises or creative activities.

We are seeking the views of our community about these plans before we complete an application for Planning Permission, so do please let us know if you have any queries or concerns we can address.

The drawings will be on display in the windows at the store in London Road from 1st-4th November, with a special coffee, cake and chat event from 2-4 on Weds 1st November. You are welcome to comment in person or online, using the contact form below.

Burlesque night

Hastings Burlesque chose HFS as their charity for their very first event in Hastings on Saturday 23rd September.

The event at White Rock Theatre raised over £500 towards HFS workshops at local women’s refuges.

Hastings Burlesque founder, Izzy Crouch said “Founding an event like this in my home town is a real privilege. I am delighted to be raising money for HFS. I know full well that life doesn’t always run smoothly and have used HFS’ services during a tricky patch in my life. I don’t know what I would have done without them. I am pleased to be able to give back to this wonderful charity that does so much for the local community.”

Classic Car Boot Stall

vw camper, red, vw fire engine, firefighter selfie, charityOur stall at the Classic Car Boot Sale was a great success.

On 8-9th July designers Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway organised the event to transform Hastings Pier with extra special vehicles and vintage treasures.

One of our supporters brought his lovely vintage VW fire engine to accompany our stall. Kids (of all ages) loved the vehicle and took “firefighter selfies”

Our stall featured many of the small vintage finds in our stores. Many visitors were surprised to see the range of goods available from HFS stores, and very pleased with our prices – we hope they’ll become regular customers!
