Celebrating the Community in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean.

Saturday, 30th July was a busy day in Moulsecoomb and Bevendean neighbourhoods.

It started with a community breakfast at the Bevy Community Pub where Moulsecoomb Local Action Team (MLAT) invited residents to a get together to plan the future of the forum and gather ideas and priorities for Moulsecoomb & Bates Estate. A new committee was formed that morning, following the sad deaths of two vital committee members, Terrence Hill and Barry Burtenshaw.

Over the past two years MLAT has continued to be committed to the local community, helping their voices get heard and supporting grassroots activities and projects. If you want to join in, contact MLAT here: [email protected] or follow on Facebook

St George’s Hall in North Moulsecoomb held a Jumble Sale that weekend and is hoping to provide more events on a regular basis. The sale will help make affordable second-hand clothing, household and leisure items available in the community, as well as offering a place to meet people for a cuppa and a chat. Future sessions also involve more signposting and advice on money saving services and further support. The next event is on Saturday, 27th August!

Action for Bevendean Community (ABC) brought people together for a summer event at Holy Nativity Church and Hall for food and fun activities. The event was visited by more than 100 people from the local community making connections, learning about local groups (ABC, Bevendean Foodbank) and city-wide services (Brighton & Hove Libraries and Cycle Team, Sussex Police), sharing ideas to strengthen their community as well as enjoying the entertainment provided by magician David Croucher, face painter Kerry from Reds Remarkable Facepainting and musicians from Skylark music group!

It's really wonderful to see so much happening in our communities this summer. 

“I have lived and worked in the area for so long, but have met so many new people at this event and seen so many new families here.”
