North Laine Runner

Free news magazine of North Laine Community Association

THE August-September 2022 edition of our free bi-monthly news magazine, the North Laine Runner, includes six pages of photographs and reports on all the jubilee bank holiday street parties in North Laine at the start of June.

There are news items on forthcoming NLCA social events, including a summer picnic, pub night, meal out together, tea party at the Pavilion Gardens Cafe and NLCA comedy night at Komedia.

Features include a visit backstage at the Theatre Royal, a look at the history of fire fighting in Brighton and some of the major blazes in North Laine area, and an appreciation of a woman who promoted the work of brilliant young artists over five decades.

We look at the life of Phoebe Hessel, born in 1713, who went to war dressed as a man, was granted a pension by George IV and lived to the age of 108.

There's a report on the way the Royal Pavilion gardens may be developed in future, including concerns that the Pavilion estate may be fenced off from dusk to dawn.

There's the Runner's crossword, plus information about what was discussed at recent NLCA community meetings.

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 Sainsbury's in the New England quarter.
