Fiveways is a residential community in the north of the City of Brighton and Hove. With the best schools in the City, lovely Victorian terraced housing, some of the best parks in the City, independent shops, organic grocers, excellent bakers, good quality butcher, cafés, deli's, excellent restaurants, art trails during the Festival and at Christmas, Fiveways is increasingly popular with young families and professionals.
Traditionally it was an older community but an influx of young families from London and elsewhere has seen the elderly demographic alter to a wider mix of people across the age ranges, and a certain degree of 'gentrification' although it remains relaxed.
Unlike Tescoland elsewhere in the UK, and even here in Brighton now, Fiveways is spoiled with several independent shops including the best Bakers in the City, Ravens, who bakes on the premises 6 days a week, a good quality butcher, a greengrocer serving excellent organic produce, excellent restaurants and bars, cafés, a delicatessen, the lovely North Village sandwitch cafe, park side pubs, photographers, wine merchants, an artists community, and several street festivals in the summers. We actively encourage use of the local shops as opposed to supermarkets where possible, not just for the quality but on the simple notion that if we do not use the local shops we will lose them, so please shop locally.

Friends of Hollingbury and Burstead Woods. Voluntary help to maintain the woods. We have been working hard with the council to pull together a new draft plan for the woods. We are now at the consultation stage and keen for word to spread. I've prepared the attached articles. The first one has all the details, including some info about what is in the Plan. I realised that was perhaps a bit too long so have written a shorter piece with the bare bones of the process but nothing about the content of the plan. Walkers recently saw and recorded the return of the Holly Blue butterfly (let). Use the Consultation forms on the Friends website here

Brand new nursery opening September 2016.
We are an all year round, all day nursery from 3 months up to 5 years
Our passion is the children and their learning and wellbeing will always be paramount to us. We strongly believe that a ‘home away from home’ environment is key, and feel children learn best in friendly and secure surroundings. To achieve this we will only be employing the highest quality of staff who will be trained constantly to maintain this.
We believe that children have a voice and learn through exploring the environment and materials around them. Charley Barley's will give the children opportunity to do so, by providing a range of activities and day to day routines. We’ve invested heavily in both our indoor and outdoor spaces and both have been designed to have a bright and airy feel, ensuring the children feel confident to explore all areas provided.
