making space

HFS has been asked to make use of an empty building in Western Road, Bexhill, while the owner looks for a long-term tenant.

The ground floor shop will offer music and films on a pay-what-you-feel basis, run by volunteers. We’re recruiting volunteers for this project at the moment; get in touch if you’d like to help out.

Upstairs will be pop-up workspace for local creatives. There are rooms for studios, offices and other spaces. There could also be exhibitions, open studios and other events.

This is a temporary project which we hope to use to prove there is a local need for permanent, affordable workspace for creative enterprises.

Pop Up

We’re excited to announce that HFS Hastings will be relocating to the Priory Meadow shopping centre temporarily.

The pop-up store will give us a chance to reach more people and reuse even more furniture.

It will also enable us to redecorate our full-time premises in Dorset Place. We haven’t seen most of the walls or floor since we moved in after our re-build in 2007, so we can’t wait to give it a lick of paint!

The pop-up is on a rent-free “meanwhile” basis, while the landlord looks for a new paying tenant. We are moving on Tues and Weds (21-22 May). Hastings store will be closed on Weds 22nd.

The new store will open at lunchtime on Thurs 23rd May

Open   Tues-Sat 9.30-4.30

Phone   01424 44 11 12

Address   SU2 (former Top Shop) Priory Meadow  Hastings  TN34 1PH

 

Vintage Fair

We have a stall full of vintage finds from our stores at the Age UK vintage fair in Bexhill this Saturday 18th May – do pop along and say hello if you’re there!

The Vintage Spring Fair has been organised to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Age UK East Sussex.

It’s a free-to-enter family fun day expected to attract 8,000 local people. There will be lots of stalls and activities to enjoy, as well as information and opportunities to work together as a community to help support our vulnerable, older neighbours who may be at risk of isolation, loneliness and poverty.
