East Sussex Library: services are under threat, and residents are urged to make their comments to ESCC 14 December. You can see details of their proposals on the village website and at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/libraries. In particular, it is proposed that the mobile library service will no longer be provided, which has implications for vulnerable Westfield residents who do not have access to internet or who find it difficult to travel into Hastings. Please find time to look at the proposals and make any comments.
