Groups

Whitehawk Crime Prevention Forum
he Whitehawk Crime Prevention Forum was founded around 20 years ago and covers the Whitehawk and Manor Farm areas of East Brighton, bounded by the ward boundary down to Roedean Road, Eastern Road and Donald Hall Road. It meets at 10.30am on the last Wednesday of each month (not August/Dec) at the Valley Social Centre on Whitehawk Way/St Cuthman's Close in Whitehawk. The forum Chair is Councillor Warren Morgan. Meetings are open to all residents, and representatives of the neighbourhood policing team are always in attendance. Also attending are representatives of local youth organisations, community development workers, city council housing and library staff, Roedean Fire Station, and other local organisations. An Argus reporter is also present at most meetings. The remit of the Forum is broad, and each meeting offers residents the opportunity to raise general crime and community safety issues during the meeting, as well as individual issues with officers during the coffee break. Attendance varies from between twenty to forty people. The Forum currently has sub groups dealing with child safety and motorbike use and representatives from the Forum attend the citywide Community Safety Forum.
