Residents in Hollingdean are welcoming the launch of a new community café! The new café, at Hollingdean Children’s Centre, will be open every Saturday from 11am to 3pm for nine weeks, selling hot and cold drinks and cakes. The café, which was opened on Sat 27, is run by volunteers who have also been busy organising other community initiatives over the summer months, including library events and “meet your local councillor” drop-in sessions.
During the week a café is run by ‘The Bridge’ in the front foyer of the Children’s centre, but until now the centre has closed at weekends. The new community café has been set up following requests from local residents who hope a weekend café will encourage more use of the surrounding Hollingdean Park. Councillor Emma Daniel, Chair of the Neighbourhood, Communities and Equalities Committee, is thrilled at the introduction of the café; ‘I am delighted that we have been able to work with residents and community groups to provide this new café which I’m sure will become a popular meeting place for local people over the coming weeks.’ If successful, this café could pave the way for similar projects across Brighton!
