Book Group in the Pub

We meet upstairs at The Chimney House pub, at the top of Buxton Road, at 7.45 on the third Thursday of every month, for an hour or so of relaxed discussion about the chosen book. You are welcome to join us. All you need to do is read the book and come along.

The next three books we are reading, chosen collectively by the group, are:

15 October: Umi Sinha Belonging

19 November: Evelyn Waugh: Scoop

21 January: Lesley Thomson: The Detective’s Daughter

See you there!

Rogue Traders Brighton area

Dear residents,

Police are currently receiving regular calls about ‘rogue trader’ activity in the Brighton area. Incidents include vulnerable and usually elderly members of the community are being targeted by pushy, intimidating trades people seeking to persuade them to have unnecessary works undertaken in and around their homes.

These works include general building  maintenance, tree surgery,  and gardening work. Victims have then been charged extortionate amounts for sub-standard work or for work not undertaken at all. We strongly advise residents not to engage with any cold callers of this type. If you have relatives who are vulnerable or living alone, they could be a potential target for these unscrupulous people.

Please do inform your relatives, friends, and colleagues. The more people who are aware, the less likely it is that someone you know will become a victim.”Please report sightings of suspicious vehicles, persons or activities such as those described to us, using the 101 non emergency contact number, via our website, www.sussex.police.ukor if there is an offence in progress, on 999.

“Crime prevention advice can be found on our website www.sussex.police.uk or via your local Police Community Support Officer by emailing101@sussex.pnn.police.uk.”

Kind regards,
Simon TURVEY

Hustings – How They Used To Do It

0260m

Ours won’t be quite as raucous as this scene from Charles Dickens’s Pickwick Papers, but it promises to be lively and fun.

See you in the Hall at 7.30 on Friday, to meet the people who want our council votes on May 7.

Get an idea of what’s in store for us; let them know what you’d like them to do for us.

The more they hear from us, and the more  we hear from them, the happier we’re likely to be with our city for the next five years.
