Our aims are:

1. To restore as much as possible of the 1934 greenhouse in Alexandra Park, Hastings.

As the greenhouse was originally steam heated, to introduce environmentally friendly solutions, such as solar roof panels for heating and glazing.

2. To become a recognised centre for the promotion of local arts to flourish.

We wish to establish a safe place where local people can enhance their physical, social and mental well-being. To engage volunteers and to offer adult returners to work, opportunities for first steps back to the experience of employment.

Key to the project is a permanent, waterproof roof.

 

We estimate this will cost £80,000.

 

Specification:

 

Timber frame teak 30metres, roof 10metres zinc on insulated ply 20metres toughened beaver tailed glass.

9 solar panels on zinc roof depot side. Upper ventilation teak with 3mm toughened glass.

 

Replacement of appropriate glazing bars in teak, restoration of teak frame to a servicable condition
