For bohemians everywhere

BAA October meeting

[Meeting held 18th Oct 2007. Report by Peter Holland] A well attended meeting began with chairperson Peter Holland welcoming new faces who, it was hoped, would become members. He praised the Co-op for its rejuvenation of the Bohemia Road store, the biggest investment in Bohemia for many years (the betting shop aside). Andy Holmes spoke for Mrs Pat Lock, head teacher at St. Paul’s School, who was unable to attend, detailing possible improvements re entry points to the school to address parking problems. Judith Monk, YMCA chairperson, gave an address reflecting thirty-seven years of YMCA service. After a brief history she outlined two major projects, Toolbox, a scheme to help adolescents with problems in school, and Community Café, a project to develop cooking and nutritional skills. She spoke of problems concerning the car park, and there was discussion with the St Paul’s Road residents present who were concerned about noise at closing time. Cllr Vivienne Bond mentioned that, in the tables used to indicate deprivation, Hastings had progressed from 39th to 27th. Cllr Andrew Cartwright gave his report covering illegal parking in Bohemia Road, alleyways, Super Output Area (SOA) data, two new litter bins in Bohemia Road, use of St. Paul’s School facilities by the community, enforcement notices served on a fast-food shop, Newgate Fields, Aldborough Road hole, Clarence Road gate, a pedestrian crossing by the Methodist Church and other highway matters.
