Community Connecting

Yummy food at Days

On the 18th July we had a fabulous meal at  Days Restaurant. We filled our tummies until we could eat no more. Delicious. We think people will go again.

The BHIG group at The People's Festival 2016

The BHIG group spent the day at The People's Festival on Hove Lawns on Sunday.  What a great day we had talking to people and telling them about what we do.  The BHIG Group (Being Heard in Government) meet regularly to learn about democracy and get more involved.  We spoke to lots of people on Sunday and asked them to think about people with learning disabilities when they hear things about the impact of cuts to benefits and local services.  If you want to keep in touch with what the BHIG group do, follow them on Twitter or Facebook  or email to

London2Brighton Challenge

Well done and thanks to all

A bit late, but congratulations and many thanks for all of those brave people who took part in the London2Brighton Challenge. Rose Atherton, Mandy Burneat, Jo Carden, Emma, Lopez, Ben Ranger (Sorry Ben, we have no photo of you!) and Dawn Thorpe. The weather was scorching and we sadly lost Rose at about 40k due to heat exhaustion, she battled on for 13k but had to pull out to receive medical attention. We lost Mandy at 77k due to severe blisters and shin splints, she too battled for at least 20k, determined to finish but once again had to retire for medical help. Everyone else crossed the finish line in good health. Well done to all. Thanks and remember, if you or anyone you know would like to do this challenge for us next year, get in touch.
