Green Spaces Association

By Jennifer Drury

The Inaugural General Meeting of this group was held in October 2007.  They are a group of mainly local residents who are concerned at the decline, security and perceived lack of maintenance of the three open spaces that surround and are adjacent to the historic church of St Nicholas in central Brighton.  If you would like to be involved, or maybe would just like some more information, please go to their website St Nicholas Church Green Spaces Association

Aims of the association:

*Protect, maintain and enhance the three open spaces so that they may be enjoyed in safety by all sections of the local community and by visitors to Brighton
*Promote the use of the spaces as places of recreation, relaxation and pleasure.
*Safeguard and preserve for future generations the spaces themselves and the historic memorials and tombs which they contain
*Conserve plants, flowers, trees and wildlife and to encourage biodiversity
*In cooperation with Brighton & Hove City Council and other agencies to promote the implementation of security measures which will reverse the present cycle of criminal activities, anti-social behaviour and vandalism
*Reverse the decline of the green spaces and to work towards them becoming examples of good practice as set out in the Green Flag Award and Green Heritage Award schemes, the national benchmarks for quality parks and green spaces
*Encourage local people's interest in the green spaces and to encourage them to become involved in the management and development of the spaces
*Work in partnership with the City Council, the Church Council, and other organisations in forwarding these aims; and to contribute where appropriate to discussions about parks and open spaces in Brighton & Hove more generally
