All going wonderfully and too fast!

London Road Station Partnership Blog

It’s all growing – growing so fast I can’t keep up. Our potato plants are huge, with leaves billowing over the old compost bags (wow! our compost must have been powerful) and we’ve now got flowers – good sign. Our fruit trees are looking beautiful with lots of little applets and pearlets and plumlets; we’ve even got blueberrylets and strawberrylets. Our green leaf beds are doing well: last year’s rocket is powering away, this year’s sowings of lettuces of various kinds are taking well, cavalo nero and chard seedlings are in and happy after the rain and beetroot seedlings, planted with two enthusiastic school children about a month ago, are doing well. We’ve got beans and courgettes surrounded by marigolds and the leeks and onions, sown earlier in the year, are growing well.

Slugs and snails are a bit of a problem this year, but the grease bands around the fruit tree…

Free special Healthwalks in June

From Corinna Edwards-Colledge –

Hello walkers

June is packed with many fantastic and free special Healthwalks to get you out and about.  Details for all of them are below and they are all walks that you can just turn up to if you are interested.

June Healthwalks

I also wanted to share with you some recent testimonials from our walkers.  It is really amazing how much something like a simple walk in company can impact on a person’s health and wellbeing:

‘I have made many friends. My husband died a year ago and the Healthwalks have really helped me in my loss.’

‘The leaders are fantastic and they are part of the reason I continue with the Healthwalks. The history of the areas when walking is also interesting’

‘I have gained enormous amounts of friends, and I meet up with walkers outside of Healthwalks!’

‘I suffer from asthma, but I do enjoy all the walking as often as I can. I also think it does and has improved my health’

Free WiFi for Brighton town centre

From Brighton Business

Brighton & Hove City Council and BT have joined forces to make free wi-fi available at a range of locations across the city centre.

The new ‘BrightonHovefreewifi’ outdoor network covers the busiest areas for tourism, shopping and leisure, providing free wi-fi for local residents, hundreds of businesses and the 11.5 million people who visit the city each year.

A total of 40 BT Wi-fi hotspots will be available on completion of the project, allowing visitors and residents to get online while ‘on the go’ through their smart phones, tablets and laptops. Thirty of the wi-fi access points are already live, with the remaining ten due to be switched on later this summer.

The service covers a large proportion of the city centre, including
  • Parts of Western Road
  • Queens Road
  • West Street
  • North Laine
  • London Road
  • St James’s Street
  • The seafront between Brighton Pier and the Hilton Metropole Hotel
  •  In front of Hove Town Hall on Church Road
  • The top of George Street in Hove
People within range of the network will be able to tap into free wi-fi following a simple on-off
log in. They will then be taken automatically to a landing page with links to the council,
VisitBrighton and the city’s travel information page.
The network comes at no cost to the council. In return, BT will get access to some of the city’s
lamp posts and other street furniture allowing the company to install new mobile
The council has chosen BT to build and manage the network for ten years. Access to the
Brighton & Hove wi-fi service is free and unlimited to all.


Consultation on new school holidays

From Brighton & Hove News

Parents are being asked to have their say on plans to shift school holidays around to create a week off during the off-peak season.

The proposals have been drawn up in response to Brighton mum Annie Heath’s suggestion for ways to make taking a holiday cheaper for families.

While councillors said they were open to the concept, the idea has sharply divided opinion amongst families who would benefit, and those who would be inconvenienced.

Now, an official consultation, running online until Friday, May 20, aims to gauge opinion before a final decision is made.
