North Laine Runner
Free news magazine of North Laine Community Association

THE June-July edition of our free bi-monthly news magazine, the North Laine Runner, features the extraordinary sighting of a fox trotting along rooftops in Kemp Street in May.

We have hopeful news on changes at William Collier House, which has been the focus of complaints about anti-social behaviour.

There's information on a great line-up of social events, including a return of NLCA's comedy night at Komedia in Gardner Street, on Monday, June 24.

Another new tree has been planted, at the junction of Trafalgar Street and Blackman Street, thanks to NLCA's campaign.

We pay tribute to globe-trotting Valerie Kippax who has left a generous bequest to the association. There's news of a delay in putting up high railings to enclose Pavilion Gardens, and we have a guide to wonderful wild plants you may not have noticeded in your garden and on North Laine streets.

We look at the 200th anniversary of St Peter's Church coinciding with Euro football on a giant TV in Valley Gardens. the campaign to bring back an undersea kelp forest off the Sussex coastline, and pictures of the Brighton Festival children's parade. We also continue our A-Z of North Laine streets.

We chronicle events of 40 years ago reported in the Runner, and continue our regular North Laine crossword and cartoon strip, Swoop.

You will also find news aboudiscussions at recent NLCA community meetings, information on how to take part in NLCA activities – and much more.

Our team of street representatives and volunteers has been out delivering the Runner to every home and business in North Laine. You can also find extra copies outside Raining Books at 28, Trafalgar Street, and at Meat Bread Wine, 2 Gloucester Street.
