The Glass-House was delighted to hear this morning that Hastings Pier and White Rock Trust (HPWRT) have been successful in their bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Along with Daisy Froud of AOC Participation (whom we approached to be the Glass-House independent Enabler for this project) we worked with the HPWRT Board of Trustees earlier this year to help them develop the design brief and community engagement strategy for the restoration of Hastings Pier. We also helped the group to understand and prepare for the appointment of an architect to the project.

A member of the Trust said:

“We got the money from HLF and a part of that is the great impression we gave over the architecture and workshops that you did. They were very impressed with your document so thank you very much.”

We are so pleased to hear the news and know that all of the Trustees have been working tirelessly to raise funds, campaign for the restoration of the pier and work with local people, businesses and organisations to involve them in the project. The Glass-House is really pleased to have been able to support the Trust in achieving some of their goals and wish them all the best in the next stage of the pier regeneration project.
