Congratulations to the hard working Phoenix Residents!
We are so happy to announce that the Phoenix Residents’ Community Association launched on the 5th February 2019.
Phoenix Brighton (formally known as the Phoenix Art Gallery) hosted the launch and it was well attended by Hyde residents and interested parties such as TDC, BHCC Communities, City Clean their local councillor (David Gibson) and Hyde. Other organisations such as the local police and good gym were also in attendance.
The group have worked really hard in the last year to be able to constitute the residents’ association. They have been meeting regularly and successfully tackled issues around parking and graffiti as well as hosting a community BBQ. They’ve also worked with Brighton & Hove City Council to consult the residents on using funds from the restorative justice team to do up the ball park on the estate.
They now have 5 key officers and 4 committee members and not only that but they are now officially part of the Hanover and Elm Grove Communities Forum as an Association.
