From Pete West –
Our first steps together
If you haven’t already heard the news, I’m glad to announce the Brighton & Hove Way Association was cheered into existence by an enthusiastic meeting of supporters who gathered in Hove Town Hall for our founding meeting.
With a committee of nine very able people elected, the work has now begun to realise our aim of having a permanent, recognised and accessible trail around the city; a route that is well signed, promoted, cared for and available for all to enjoy.
I’d like to extend thanks to all who came along or sent apologies, and everyone who has expressed support for the Brighton & Hove Way.
How to support
As the association’s new chair, I would also like to welcome your help in making this exciting project flourish: whether that’s from the comfort of your armchair or out and about on the route.
If you haven’t already done so, please let us know you’re with us, and we’ll add you as a Supporter and stay in touch, there’s no membership fee – just email “I Support” to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pass this email on to friends too and also like and share www.facebook.com/brightonandhoveway
We especially need volunteers who can help keep an eye on sections of the trail; checking every 3 months to see if all is ok. Let us know if you would like join the new Volunteer Path Warden Scheme and help watch out for your bit of the B&H Way.

What’s the route?
The route of the B&H Way is not yet finalised – that’s a question we’ll be working on. Meanwhile, here are two maps showing the route of the Mayoral Walk in April 2017 which is the foundation of the route so far. The route uses existing rights of way and access land so go on, get out and explore! Don’t forget to let us know how you get on.
We aim to achieve
The Association has agreed six aims including setting up the B&H Way; looking after it; and promoting its use – especially by under-represented groups. https://docs.google.com/document/d/13qFKhl9HC1Mflecfo0u7h27lPRRhvG8damKoQmym9OE/edit?usp=sharing
Thank you again for your support and in helping to spread the word.
