Book Editing volunteer groups have decided that the themes for the books will be
1 – ‘Unsung heroes and pioneers’ – people who shaped Brighton, those who arrived and made a difference, and those who keep Brighton running today.
2 – ‘Outskirts’ – stories and memories from Moulsecoomb, Whitehawk, Portslade, Bevendean, etc, bus routes and ‘the edges’ – we are pretty sure Hollingdean falls into this category
3 – ‘Alternative Cultures’ – music, fashion, sexuality, the Open Houses, homelessness…
4 – ‘Terraces’ – neighbours and neighbourhood, architecture and building, and how it creates and impacts upon our communities.
Do you have any stories, anecdotes or memories – anything from 20 words to 300 – about any of the above? If so, please send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm, Monday the 26th of November, and they will be put forward to the editing groups for possible inclusion in the books. Please also include a name that you would like to be credited by.
