Fantastic addition for Brighton—The rebirth of civic life, Allan Grainger, August 2013

The Civic Brighton and Hove platform was founded in July 2013.

We offer weekly news and updates about amenity societies across the city, together with news about neighbourhood associations, friends of parks and other groups working to campaign with conservation and development issues located in specific areas of the city.

There is also a directory of associations and a talksboard about lectures in the city related to history and conservation issues.

The platform aims to be a news resource for amenity societies and also a news resource for people that want to find out more about the work of particular amenity societies in their part of the city.

The Civic Brighton and Hove platform was founded by Selma Montford, MBE, Honorary Secretary of the Brighton Society, and Simon Montgomery, who runs a web teaching company based in Brighton.

Selma Montford describes the work of the Civic Brighton and Hove platform best. She says, “our aim is to give amenity societies an opportunity to learn from each other”.
