The East Brighton Bygones are a friendly social group who enjoy sharing the history of Brighton and its surrounding area with a particular focus on Whitehawk.
Over the years, East Brighton Trust has supported the group through our small grants programme. The funding awarded has been used to pay for speakers to come and talk at their meeting, outings and Christmas parties for members as well as for maintenance of their website.
Marion Brooke of the Bygones told us a bit more about the project “Most of our members lived in Whitehawk during their childhood so have many stories to tell and share. We have a variety of speakers, on many different subjects, but we also have informal meetings where members can discuss and share their own personal experiences.”
