Pitched up every Friday in Brighthelm Garden on Queens Road is Street Diner. It's a thriving street food market with traders from in and around Sussex; most of whom source ingredients locally. It's been a roaring success with hungry punters and has helped lots of new food businesses get off the ground.

Our team of dietitians run both group and 1-1 nutritional advice services across the city. We frequently get asked questions about weight loss by our clients which may have been picked up in the media or passed on from friends. So we thought we would write a series of Q&A blogs to provide you with accurate and informed answers to some of your nutritional queries.

First Base is a Brighton Housing Trust day centre which supports people who are sleeping rough or are insecurely housed in the city, helping them get back on their feet. The services they provide – from basic facilities like showers and laundry for rough sleepers, to accommodation services, work & learning activities and mental health support – are invaluable and are accessed by hundreds of people over the year. For many of these people, First Base is quite literally a life-saver.

"Thanks and well done to all who have contributed with hard work to create this mini paradise. A great example for others elsewhere."

Once a wasteland, Racehill Orchard is now a peaceful and flourishing part of the Whitehawk neighbourhood; with dozens of fruit trees and activities on throughout the year.

The first trees were planted in 2013 by local residents, Brighton Permaculture Trust and the Food Partnership, and it's become a sanctuary in the east of our city.
