Meridian Branch is calling for volunteers

Many many months ago when Nancy Platts was holding and arranging fund raisers for Lloyd’s organiser fund the Meridain secretary arranged a date for the Labour Party to run a Car Boot Sale at The Dell, South Coast Road (junction with Sutton Avenue) Peacehaven on Sunday 19th August from 8am to 12:00.

We are responsible for hiring out pitches for cars to sell from and arranging the car parking within The Dell which is a Recreation Area.
This is an opportunity to help with the car parking and hence fund raising for the MP’s organiser fund or if branches wish they can have a stall to sell anything they want. Obviously individual members can have a stall as well. £7 /car or £10/ van.

If anybody can help with the car parking that would be great.
If you can help out, please contact the branch.

A message from East Brighton Branch about the Bristol Estate Community Cafe

There is something about the weekend that, for many people, demands a delicious cooked breakfast. It’s something that the volunteers at the Bristol Estate Community Cafe have been delivering, every weekend, for the past couple of years. Locals like Keith come for the freshly cooked food, a read of the newspapers and the stunning view across East Brighton, and Sheryl, who brings her dogs and sits outside chatting with other neighbours.

Over the past few months, the dishwasher, void of feelings for the humans it serves, has decided to stop working. This causes issues during busy periods. The community has raised some money for a new one, but need to raise more, or find a friendly person whomight be able to donate a dishwasher.

If you can help, please email or drop into the Cafe at the weekend between 9:30am and 12:30.

Thanks all,

That’s your round up for August.
