Increasing numbers of local children are going to Hove Park School now that Prestonville is in the Blatchington Mill / Hove Park catchment area. A number of parents in Prestonville and neighbouring areas have formed a group to share information and views about HPS, which can seem a long way away from here. Indeed, it’s the best part of three miles, and local parents have been lobbying hard for improvements in the bus services on which HPS students from this side of town have to rely. In January we put a question to the Council’s Children and Young People Cabinet Member meeting, supported by local councillor Kevin Allen, and Celia Barlow, MP for Hove, has agreed to meet us. If you’d like to get in touch with local HPS parents, please contact Brenda Norville: tel. 539151.
