I have been asked by John Shepherd, Project Worker for
Fresh Start Sussex, to post the following update on the proposed opening of a cafe in Easthill Park.
Dear Portslade Community Forum

Seven years after it was first discussed, a disused toilet block in a Portslade park is finally being transformed into a community café and training room. The Easthill Park Café is due to open in March, and will be run by local charity Fresh Start Sussex. The café will offer work placements and training to local unemployed people, and also host a range of training events, fun activities and community events.
Local City Councillors Alan Robins and Les Hamilton, who have been instrumental in pushing the project forward over the last year, are delighted that the local community will be benefiting from a great new asset. They said, “Portslade residents will be very grateful to Fresh Start for their initiative in providing a  community café for park users and local residents, and also providing an excellent training facility for our young people. My thanks go to all who have made this possible”
The Easthill Park toilets have been disused since 1979, and have become any eyesore and also attracting anti-social behaviour. The refurbishment will take about six weeks, but before it starts, there is another project to undertake – photographing all the graffiti. The wall graffiti is iconic of the late 1970’s, with a range of political messages, music groups of the time, and messages of undying love. The graffiti will be turned into an on-line exhibition in the next few months, sponsored by Sussex Asphalte and Thorn Electrical.
